The Architect of India’s Crypto Bill ?Says India is Misinterpreting the Private Crypto Ban

Some days back there was absolute chaos in the Indian crypto market, with almost every cryptocurrency on India’s premier crypto exchange WazirX in red.

The main culprit behind such a bloodbath was the infamous crypto bill, which “seeks to prohibit all private cryptocurrencies in India, however, it allows for certain exceptions to promote the underlying technology and its uses.”

But Subhash Ghai, the creator of the previous crypto bill said in an interview to a local television that people in India are mistaken by believing that the bill intends to ban private cryptocurrencies.

Ghai also pointed out the issues in recognizing cryptocurrencies as assets. He said, “You don’t classify the wheat that you produce, you don’t classify the clothes you produce, as assets. That is too much oversimplification to treat this as an asset.”

UK’s Market Authority Orders Meta to Sell Giphy

The United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) in an official ruling ordered Meta, previously Facebook, to sell Giphy, the popular Gif creator and sharing site.

The authority believes that Meta’s ownership of Giphy is against the ethos of the free market, as it tips the scale in the competitive social media market against Meta’s favor.

The CMA believes that Meta can leverage their ownership over Giphy by preventing access to the platform and direct the traffic to Meta-owned social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Whatsapp.

This is the first incident in which the CMA has demanded to unwind a company that has already been acquired by a tech giant.

The counterfeit sneaker industry is huge. Many market research report estimates the industry’s worth is in the range of $1 billion to $1.5 billion.

The vast network of fake sneaker sellers is causing fear among buyers paying for genuine products. To alleviate their fears, SneakerCon offers a sneaker authentication service allowing buyers to verify the product’s authenticity.

Once the verification is complete, the sneaker is sent to its buyers with a tag that shows that the sneaker has been verified and is found to be original.

SneakerCon & eBay entered a partnership in 2020 and since then, any sneakers that are priced above $100 have to pass through the SneakerCon vetting process. So far, 1.55 million sneakers have been verified on eBay.

Recently, eBay acquired SneakerCon, and with this acquisition of SneakerCon, eBay is placing itself at the forefront of the online sneakers market.
