MetaMask to Start Collecting User IP Addresses
According to an updated privacy policy agreement published by ConsenSys, creator of the MetaMask wallet, MetaMask will begin collecting users’ IP addresses and Ethereum wallet addresses during on-chain transactions. ConsenSys, the creator of the MetaMask wallet, announced in an updated privacy policy agreement that the wallet will soon begin collecting users’ IP addresses and Ethereum wallet addresses. The company however explained that the collection of users’ data will only apply if they use MetaMask’s default Remote Procedure Call (RPC) application called Infura. ConsenSys added that individuals who use their own Ethereum node or a third-party RPC provider with MetaMask will not be subject to the changes in the privacy policy. The firm added that information gathered may be disclosed to affiliates, during business deals, or may be used to comply with Know Your Customer and Anti-Money Laundering requirements. Decrypt reported that alternative RPCs which can be utilized by Ethereum developers include Alchemy, QuickNode, Moralis, and Tatum. Alternative RPCs are however subject to their own data collection policies and may also change in the future. ConsenSys added in a blog post that its “policy has always stated that certain information is automatically collected about how users use our sites and that this information may include IP addresses,” adding that it isn’t “Infura-specific” and that this type of data collection “is consistent with how web architecture works generally.” Overall the crypto community has reacted negatively to the changes in ConsenSys’ privacy policy. Adam Cochran, partner at Cinneamhain Ventures said: There is nothing more important than consumer privacy, especially when it comes to your financial data — you have a right to be anonymous. Metamask has provided a great free service for a long time, but their decision to log IPs and tie it to transactions is unacceptable. ConsenSys is not the only firm to have recently made changes to its data collection policy. Decentralised exchange Uniswap recently started collecting some off-chain data including users’ device type or browser but claims that it collects data purely for improving user experience. The exchange added that their data collection efforts did not include other forms of personal information such as user’s names, addresses, date of birth, email, or IP addresses.

Why Flasko (FLSK) Is A Better 2023 Investment Than Polygon (MATIC) And Uniswap (UNI)
Investors in cryptocurrencies are beginning to relax as 2022 draws to a close. Almost all cryptocurrencies had a value decline of 90% this year, and the recent FTX bankruptcy did not help the situation. This domino effect impacted established currencies such as Polygon (MATIC) and Uniswap (UNI). Due to the neverending crisis, investors seek alternatives to these currencies, and some new presales are currently gaining traction. Today we will discuss one such presale, Flasko! Uniswap (Uni) Sinks 18% In 30 Days The decentralized Uniswap mechanism enables individuals to exchange Ethereum tokens. Since its launch in November 2018, Uniswap (UNI) has been one of the most popular operating systems on the Ethereum network. The price of Uniswap (UNI) has been declining recently. The confidence of traders in the market has been damaged by the Uniswap (UNI) bulls' inability to push the price above its support levels. Uniswap (UNI) is currently worth $5.51, a fall of 18% in just one month. This has led holders of Uniswap (UNI) to lose faith in the project. Polygon (MATIC) Holders Appear Demoralized Polygon (MATIC) has grown in prominence due to the high platform capacity and low gas prices that users and developers enjoy. Polygon (MATIC) had to increase network use to withstand the current pricing fall. The price of the Polygon (MATIC) token is $0.8588 after falling by 4.28% in a single day. Even if Polygon (MATIC) may soon see some good price swings, analysts advise that investing early in new projects will bring you a more significant profit. Flasko (FLSK) Will Surpass Polymatic (MATIC) And Uniswap (UNI) Let's see why crypto experts predict the newcomer Flasko will be a better investment than Polygon (MATIC) and Unsiwap (UNI) in 2023. Flasko is now in Stage Two of its presale, and we can say that it is a hit. It aims to bring together crypto enthusiasts and the $13.4 trillion alternative investments industry. On the Flasko platform, you may purchase and trade fractionalized NFTs, genuine luxury investments in the most premium, continually appreciating bottle spirits. With a 100% NFT purchase, you may even get the asset backing the NFT sent to your neighborhood, free shipping included! There are three VIP categories for early investors: the whiskey, wine, and champagne clubs. Each of these tiers offers a variety of benefits, including exposure to 75 unique NFTs and entry to several champagne-tasting events globally. Another plus in Flasko’s book, it passed a thorough audit by the famous German-based auditing company Solid Proof. Flasko will also lock liquidity for three decades which proves that the team is in it for the long run. According to cryptocurrency specialists, investing in the Flasko token now will increase your profits by 30x in 2023. With a price of just $0.085, now is the ideal time to invest in this potential top-10 cryptocurrency.

MakerDAO Removes Alameda-linked renBTC As Reserve Collateral
MakerDAO has announced that it has passed a governance vote which will remove Alameda Research-linked renBTC from its stablecoin collateral vaults. The move comes after the team at Ren stated that the current Ren 1.0 protocol will be closed. Ren was funded by Sam Bankman-Fried founded Alameda Research. RenBTC Removed As Reserve Collateral MakerDAO, the issuer of the decentralized DAI stablecoin, has announced that it had passed a governance proposal to remove renBTC from its collateral vaults. The move was announced to reduce the stablecoin’s exposure to what the DAO deems a risky asset following the collapse of FTX and Alameda Research. RenBTC is a wrapped stablecoin asset developed by Ren Protocol, a project backed by Alameda Research. MakerDAO enables users to mint the DAI stablecoin by depositing excess crypto as collateral. In 2020, the protocol announced that users could deposit renBTC in special “RENBTC-A” vaults and mint the DAI stablecoin. MakerDAO announced the news in a tweet, stating, “This is an important notice to all RENBTC-A users. In light of the uncertainty surrounding the Ren Protocol, and following Risk Core Unit’s recommendation, Maker Governance voted to offboard the RENBTC-A vault type.” Community Supports Removal The vote on the proposal saw 100% of the MakerDAO delegates favoring the removal of renBTC from the collateral vaults. London Business School Blockchain, which functions as a MakerDAO delegate, stated, “With Alameda filing for bankruptcy and the elevated risk of renBTC depegging, we support offboard renBTC as collateral to minimize risk to the platform.” At present, there are several renBTC vaults on Maker. These have collectively loaned out over 850,000 DAI. With the vote to remove renBTC passing, these positions will be liquidated beginning the 7th of December, according to the approved vote. Maker’s risk unit added that the liquidation ratio for the positions will be set at 5000%, guaranteeing that liquidations will be triggered. Ren 1.0 To Shut Down The Ren project was acquired by the sister firm of FTX, Alameda Research, and began receiving quarterly funding from the firm. However, shortly after the acquisition of Ren, FTX and Alameda filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Following this, the Ren team stated that the current tokenized Bitcoin offering, called Ren 1.0, would be shut down. Ren 1.0 would be replaced by a new community-run Ren 2.0. The team has also put any new renBTC issuance on hold and asked users to burn the circulating tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and claim them back to the original chain. The team also added that the team would require additional funding to develop the second version of Ren. Any Risk To Ren? While renBTC is currently stable, Maker’s Risk Core Unit added that the DAO’s offboarding of the asset could lead it to de-peg from Bitcoin. Maker explained that with burning disabled, it had only a limited window to offload the collateral and minimize any potential complications. It further added that the protocol’s offloading from the RENBTC-A vaults does not represent any threat to the overall financial health of the Maker Protocol.

UK and Singapore Renew Commitment to FinTech Goals
The United Kingdom and Singapore today agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at boosting financial technology (FinTech) trade and cooperation between the two nations. At the 7th Financial Dialogue held in Singapore today, the UK and the Southeast Asian nation renewed their commitment to the continued growth, investment, and technological innovation of the FinTech sector by signing an MoU on the UK-Singapore Fintech Bridge. The countries affirmed their investment in deepening the UK-Singapore Financial Partnership agreed upon in 2021 and discussed mutual priorities including sustainable finance, FinTech, and innovation, and agreed to continued cooperation in these areas. The FinTech Bridge builds on an agreement signed in 2016 and aims to provide structured engagement aiding the development of policy actions, the enhanced assessment of emerging issues including the development of distributed ledger technology and data sharing, and supports trade and investment flow between the two respective countries. The Financial Dialogue is an initiative undertaken by the Monetary Authority of Singapore – the country’s central bank, and the HM Treasury – the UK government’s economic and finance ministry. World’s Leading Spaces for FinTech Investment Confirm Commitment According to Innovate Finance’s 2022 Summer Investment Report, the UK and Singapore are two of the world’s leading jurisdictions for FinTech investment. In the first half of 2022, the total global investment in FinTech reached $59 billion, with the UK accounting for $9.1 billion of that. The country also boasts a 24% year-on-year increase from 2021 which is more than the rest of Europe combined. At the same time, Singapore was ranked as Southeast Asia’s leading jurisdiction for FinTech investment and places sixth globally. Andrew Griffith, the Economic Secretary to the Treasury said: The UK and Singapore are among the world’s leading jurisdictions for fintech investment –and today’s announcement will only accelerate growth and innovation in our respective sectors. CEO of Innovate Finance, Janine Hirt added: Innovate Finance welcomes this announcement. An MoU between UK and Singapore will deliver a strengthened framework for vital regulatory and policy discussions between the two countries, enable innovation across financial services, and ensure businesses based in both the UK and Singapore have the ongoing support for their ambitions for growth to be realised. While discussing their mutual interest in the FinTech space, the countries addressed matters of sustainable finance, affirming their strong commitment to the implementation of International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) disclosure standards. Both countries have vowed to continue to work with the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), the ISSB, and various other international organizations to implement a comprehensive global baseline of sustainability-related disclosure standards. Another key topic of discussion was the crypto-asset sector. Both countries shared their assessment of market developments, opportunities, trends, and long-term expectations for the sector. Key to this discussion was the risks and challenges associated with the industry as they pertain to financial stability and regulatory arbitrage while sharing their progress in strengthening the rules around consumer protection and developing the necessary regulatory framework for stablecoins. Both the UK and Singapore are in strong agreement in terms of the need to support the safe development of a digital asset ecosystem while ensuring risks posed by digital assets are managed accordingly. Both countries have pledged to actively participate in the shaping of robust global regulatory practices via engagement with international boards such as the Financial Stability Board (FSB), the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructure (CPMI), and IOSCO. The UK and Singapore wrapped up by agreeing to a roadmap for engagements in sustainable finance, FinTech and innovation, and other areas of mutual interest, leading up to the next Dialogue which is scheduled to take place in London in 2023.

Three crypto giants vying to buy Voyager Digital
Binance, CrossTower, and Wave Financial are bidding once more for the grand prize of Voyager Digital and its assets. Three crypto firms are in contact with Voyager Digital as they each try to offer a bid and terms that will be to the best advantage of the bankrupt crypto lending platform and its customers. Binance makes an offer Binance.US, the US arm of Binance, will make another offer after its initial offer was rejected in favour of FTX. Now that company is out of the reckoning Changpeng Zhao’s company will once again prepare a bid for Voyager. Zhao has been prominent among those trying to bolster the crypto ecosystem after the massive implosion caused by FTX. He recently announced that his Web3 Industry Recovery Initiative would receive a further $1 billion to add to the $1 billion already pledged. CrossTower seeks to benefit the wider crypto community CrossTower is keeping its cards close to its chest, but the crypto trading company does say, according to CNBC, that its revised offer will “benefit both the customers and the wider crypto community.” CNBC also reports that CrossTower wants to put together a crypto recovery fund along the same lines as Binance, but the company stresses that it is not there to compete with the Binance Web3 Industry Recovery Initiative. Wave Financial wants to “reinvigorate $VGX” On the minds of many Voyager investors is what will become of $VGX, the exchange token, which worked along similar lines as the Binance BNB token, offering discounts on trading fees among other utilities. The Wave Financial bid takes this into account. Matteo Perruccio, president of international for Wave, said that his company’s former bid sought to reinvigorate the $VGX token. He also shared with CNBC how to attract customers at a lower cost, saying: “We also had some, I think, pretty clever ideas about how to bring traffic at a much lower cost of acquisition at a higher per customer balance, which were the two big problems at Voyager,” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Analysts Estimate That Flasko (FLSK) Will Overtake Uniswap (UNI) and Dogecoin (DOGE) In 2023
The cryptocurrency market lost its spark at the start of 2022. By the conclusion of May, the market had already started to decline, and the recent FTX crash caused prices to drop much lower. Today, most coins are still having trouble recovering from their recent lows. This impacts some well-known cryptocurrency projects, like Dogecoin (DOGE) and Uniswap (UNI). Investors have nonetheless picked up on Flasko, a promising cryptocurrency. Let's investigate the basis behind the buzz! Uniswap (UNI) Suffers 13% Drop In The Last 30 Days Uniswap (UNI) initially rose to prominence during the decentralized financial surge of 2020. Furthermore, supporters of digital currencies, especially those with essential stakes in DeFi, have traditionally favored the Uniswap (UNI) platform. Sadly, the 13% drop in Uniswap (UNI) this month shows no more need for DeFi operations. Uniswap (UNI) is currently trading at $5.53, and investors are searching for options with greater development possibilities. Dogecoin (DOGE) Still No Applications In The Real World Dogecoin (DOGE) was launched in 2013 as an alternative to well-known digital coins like Bitcoin. The Shiba Inu logo and name are founded on a practical joke. Dogecoin (DOGE) was intentionally developed to be abundant. It has an infinite supply and creates 10,000 coins per minute. The recent decline in their asset price hasn't been enjoyable for Dogecoin (DOGE) holders. Another thing that discourages investors from holding Dogecoin (DOGE) is the lack of real-world use cases compared to Flasko. Flasko (FLSK) Will Provide Incredible Returns Crypto experts predict Flasko will outperform Dogecoin (DOGE) and Uniswap (UNI) coins in the coming months. Let's dive deeper into why that may happen! Investors can buy fractionalized NFTs backed by bottles of expensive and sought-after champagne, whisky, and wines on the alternative investment platform that Flasko is developing. The Flasko has achieved Stage One completion thanks to funders. The Flasko presale is currently in Stage Two, and the project looks well on its way to achieve its full potential. When discussing safety, it is essential to note that Solid Proof has finished its audit, which is a positive development. Additionally, the Flasko team will lock liquidity for 33 years. These details demonstrate that investing in Flasko is among the safest decisions you can make. We agree with experts' forecasts that the value of Flasko will rise by more than 4,000% in 2023. It's a fantastic opportunity to participate in a project that has the potential to run high in the near future for just $0.085. Most seasoned investors know that investing early in reputable businesses typically results in significant returns. This is the reason we implore you to look into Flasko: Website: Presale: Telegram: Twitter: Disclaimer: This is a sponsored press release and is for informational purposes only.

ApeCoin Geoblocks North American Stakers
The United States was added to the list of regions geo-blocked from using an upcoming Apecoin staking service. Geo-Blocking Implemented Across North America Apecoin holders based in the United States would lose an opportunity of winning staking rewards due to the geo-block imposed on North America by the website. The site is being built by the blockchain infrastructure company Horizen Labs, which disclosed information about the geo-blocking in a Twitter update. The site is being developed on behalf of the ApeCoin DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) and, according to the update from Horizen Labs, will be geo-blocked from the North American countries of the United States and Canada. The other countries and regions also on the list are North Korea, Syria, Iran, Cuba, Russia and Russia-controlled regions of Ukraine, Crimea, Donetsk, and Luhansk. A section of the update reads, “We are aware that geoblocking some users in North America is inconvenient for many members of the ApeCoin community. Unfortunately, in today’s regulatory environment, we had no good alternative.” SEC Investigating Yuga Labs Crypto staking refers to the process of locking up one’s crypto assets or digital coins to secure a certain blockchain network and, in turn, receiving rewards in terms of network fees and subsidies or a periodic yield. However, securities regulators in the United States have been targeting such products and have come down hard on other crypto lending platforms providing simar services. The decision by ApeCoin to implement geo-blocking across the U.S. came soon after the Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) launched a probe into ApeCoin creator Yuga Labs in October. As with Ripple and XRP, the SEC is investigating if the popular NFTs under the Yuga Labs banner act more like securities and are subsequently flouting federal laws. Loopholes To Access APE Staking Although the website will act as an interface to interact with the Ethereum-based open-source smart contract, there will be other ways to work around the geo-block. Several other exchanges and DeFi platforms are also designing similar interfaces to allow users from geo-blocked locations to stake APE. Another alternative for users from geo-blocked locations is to interact directly with the smart contract. According to the ApeCoin team, “We want to remind the community that one of the benefits of decentralized finance is that anybody can interact with a smart contract, or develop clients and interfaces that allow users to interact with smart contracts.” Furthermore, the use of VPN is also quite popular among the crypto community and can be used in this instance to hide their IP addresses.

Belgium Declares BTC, ETH Not Securities
BTC, ETH, or any other cryptocurrency that is generated by computer code is not classified as securities by a Belgian regulatory body. Belgian Regulator Addresses Concerns Belgium’s Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) released a report on November 22, which addressed the question - are cryptos securities? According to the regulatory body, since Bitcoin, Ether, and other cryptocurrencies are issued solely by computer code, they are not considered securities. An excerpt from the report reads, “If there is no issuer, as in cases where instruments are created by a computer code and this is not done in execution of an agreement between issuer and investor (for example, Bitcoin or Ether), then in principle the Prospectus Regulation, the Prospectus Law and the MiFID rules of conduct do not apply.” There have been increasing questions regarding where digital assets fall under the country’s existing financial laws and regulations. The above-mentioned report clarified in response to these increasing queries about the classification of cryptocurrencies under Belgian law. FSMA’s Stepwise Plan The FSMA has also stated that it will be including cryptocurrencies as a security under its “stepwise plan” if it was issued by an individual or entity. However, the stepwise plan will not be affected by the technology behind such assets. Simply put, it will not matter if the digital assets are existing or are being facilitated on a blockchain or through other traditional means. The European Parliament’s Markets in Crypto Assets Regulation (MiCA) will be adopted across the continent around the start of 2024. Till then, the regulatory framework for this asset will be provided by the stepwise plan chartered by the FSMA report. Furthermore, even if the cryptocurrencies are not categorized as securities, they will be subjected to other regulations if they are being used as an exchange medium. “Nevertheless, if the instruments have a payment or exchange function, other regulations may apply to the instruments or the persons who provide certain services relating to those instruments.” FSMA And SEC - Two Different Approaches The report from the regulatory body further states that transferable instruments with an issuer need to provide detailed information to potential investors. In such cases, the EU’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive law or MiFID will come into action to prevent conflicts of interest. But since cryptos like Bitcoin do not have any particular issuer, the law does not apply to them. This clear-cut attitude towards crypto is in stark contrast to the perspective adopted by the FSMA’s American counterpart. The U.S. Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) has held a very “regulation by enforcement” approach toward digital assets and has also dragged crypto companies to the court over claims that cryptos should be registered as securities.

Founded in 2017, Compound is an Ethereum-based DeFi lending protocol that allows users to easily borrow or lend crypto assets in a trustless, decentralized environment. The protocol was developed by Compound Labs Inc., a software development firm led by San Francisco-based Robert Leshner and Geoffrey Hayes. As of Q2 2022, Compound ranked among the top 10 largest DeFi protocols, with a TVL (Total Value Locked) of around $3 billion. 

Compound protocol was created with the aim of putting people’s idle crypto assets to use. It does that by providing them an open lending platform that can be used by anyone to deposit Ethereum-based tokens to earn interest or take a secured loan in a completely trustless manner.

COMP, the native token of the Compound protocol, is based on Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard and is used for decentralized governance of the platform. COMP holders are allowed to propose, debate and implement changes to the Compound protocol, without any intervention from the Compound team. The entire process happens on-chain, in a completely transparent manner. Each COMP token equals 1 vote. One can even delegate his/her voting right to someone else. While all COMP holders can debate and vote on protocol modifications, only the ones with at least 100,000 tokens can float proposals to make such changes.

COMP price

The COMP price rapidly surged past $300 within a week after its June 16, 2020 launch, and reached $336 on June 22. However, it soon ebbed and stayed mostly within the range of $150 - $250 until late September 2020, when it began its downward descent, bottoming out at $80 on Nov. 3, 2020. 

COMP coin’s next noteworthy surge came in January 2021, amid a market-wide crypto boom, when it rallied onto breach the $500 resistance for the first time, and registered $573 per token valuation on Feb. 12, 2021. Buoyed up further by market forces, COMP coin registered its all-time high of $911 on May 12, 2021. COMP’s fully diluted valuation crossed $9 billion on that occasion. 

As per our COMP live price chart, COMP USD price kept fluctuating between $300 to $500 thereon, until December 2021, when pulled down by bearish forces, it started gradually declining, and plummeted to its all-time low of $26 on June 18, 2022.

How COMP works

Anyone can sign up with Compound and use the protocol without providing any personal information. All you require is an Ethereum compatible wallet like MetaMask and you’re good to go.

Lenders can deposit their crypto assets into Compound pools, in return for ERC-20-based ‘cTokens’, which represent their stake in the corresponding pool. For instance, you can deposit ETH into a pool, and obtain cETH in return. These cTokens can be redeemed any time for the underlying crypto asset. Over time, with the increasing exchange rate of these cTokens, the lenders can convert them into a higher amount of the corresponding underlying asset. Hence, earning interest through Compound becomes as easy as just holding a cToken. 

When it comes to the borrowers, they can deposit collateral and avail a secured loan from any of the Compound pools. The Loan-to-Value (LTV) ratio and interest rate paid varies from asset to asset.

Compound distinguished itself from the other DeFi protocols by pioneering the concept of ‘Liquidity Mining’ in the crypto world. While it is common for everyone to look for the best opportunities to earn interest on their crypto deposits, also referred to as ‘Yield Farming’, Compound introduced ‘Liquidity Mining’, as per which the users could earn COMP governance tokens by simply engaging with the protocol. COMP token was launched in June 2020, with a maximum fixed supply of 10 million. 

COMP news, updates and highlights

In important COMP news, the Compound protocol, riding high on the yield farming and liquidity mining craze, crossed $1 billion in crypto loans issued, for the first time, in July 2020. This came less than a month after the launch of the COMP token. 

More recently in May 2022, Compound’s enterprise arm ‘Compound Treasury’ received a fairly mixed credit rating from the S&P Global. Rated B- by S&P Global, it meant that the USDC-based yield platform was deemed as ‘speculative’, but capable of meeting its current financial commitments. However, most importantly, it was the first time that an ‘Institutional DeFi’ product earned a score from any of the major credit rating agencies.
