In this week's edition, we will be taking a look at the biggest events in the crypto sphere, including USDC's recent comeback to $0.99, Binance NFT's integration with Polygon Network, and the huge success of the "Gitcoin Presents" NFT collection.
We also share the latest gaming news, such as Lego joining the metaverse arena thanks to a new collaboration with Epic Games, details on the new partnership between Katana Inu & Boba Network, and the THNDR Games release of Bitcoin Blocks. Let's go!
USDC Climbs Back Up to $0.99. After losing its $1 peg over the weekend and falling as low as $0.87, the second-largest stablecoin, USDC, has recovered and is currently (at the time of writing) at $0.99. Concerns have been raised about how much of Circle's cash reserves were stored at Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), which was shut down by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation on March 10th.
Binance NFT Integrates With Polygon Network. "Binance NFT," the NFT division of Binance, recently announced that the company is adding Polygon support. Binance NFT users will now be able to trade across three different blockchains: Polygon, Ethereum, and Binance Smart Chain. Initially, Binance will only add ten carefully selected ERC-721 NFT collections.
The "Gitcoin Presents" NFT Collection Experiences Explosive Demand. The collection consists of 9221 items with a floor price of 0.3047 ETH (which corresponds to a value of approximately $430). The project is experiencing major success due to the fact that Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum co-founder) was directly involved in this venture. Each NFT in the collection has an album-style design and includes a digital copy of the 2018 Quadratic Funding whitepaper.
