As part of Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter (TWTR), Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by trading volume, announced it had invested $500 million. This modest but significant action sparked rumors that the social media company might one day run on blockchain technology.
Musk Successfully Takes Over Twitter.
Musk completed his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter late on Thursday, gleefully tweeting, “The bird is liberated,” and promptly removing several top executives from their positions. After months of public and legal battles over the sale, this finally happened. Early sources state that the new owner has already drastically lowered Twitter’s c-suit. Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and top attorney Vijaya Gadde, who played a key role in the decision to block former President Donald Trump’s account on the social media network in January 2021, are reportedly among the departing staff. Although it might only be a temporary post, Musk will take over as CEO, according to a source who talked with Bloomberg.
As per the reports, his next step would be to reinstate Twitter users who have received lifetime bans from the platform, including Trump.
Before finalizing the acquisition, Musk indicated that securing the “future of civilization” was his main driving force in buying Twitter.
Instead of dividing into “far right-wing and far left-wing echo chambers,” Musk says the objective is to maintain a “common digital town square,” where individuals of diverse viewpoints may discuss on their points of view without resorting to violence.
Other objectives include combating Twitter spam bots, which might be done by putting blockchain-based solutions in place.
Bot spam is particularly common in the cryptocurrency world, where con artists frequently use false identities to entice investors by impersonating influencers and other well-known people, including Elon Musk.
Binance Founder Expressed His Excitement about Working Together with Musk
Binance revealed on Friday that it has invested in Twitter’s acquisition by billionaire internet entrepreneur Elon Musk as an equity investor (TWTR).
The founder of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, expressed his excitement in an email, “We’re thrilled to be able to support Elon in realizing a new vision for Twitter. We want to help social media and Web3 work together to increase the use and adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency.” A team from Binance is reportedly being formed to think of ways that blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies can help Twitter.
In a tweet, Zhao claimed that Binance had sent $500 million as part of the transaction two days prior. CoinDesk’s request for comment from Twitter did not immediately receive a response.
A few Twitter executives were reportedly taken to the door as Musk closed the transaction on Oct. 27. The new owner of the social media platform then purportedly cleaned house. In May 2022, according to a statement made by Binance, it will invest alongside 18 other investors in Twitter, including major cryptocurrency investment firms Sequoia Capital Fund, Fidelity Management, and Research Company.
The founder of Binance said on October 28 that the company had placed money on the table as Musk completed his acquisition of Twitter. To check that the business had wired the monies earlier in the week, CZ used the newly acquired platform.
Zhao clarified that he was not personally involved in the transaction and quipped that he thought the transfer had been made using traditional banking methods rather than a blockchain or cryptocurrency transaction in response to a user on the Twitter thread who wrote “CZ” now owns part of Twitter: “We are small potatoes, just a tiny bit.” Zhao responded to other comments, clarifying that he was not personally involved in the transaction.
A cryptocurrency market is a place where changes of different types are taking place now and then, new reformations are being made to bring about improvement in certain aspects as well as new ways being introduced. It is a highly volatile market that is affected by costs and whose value fluctuates based on which crypto asset is in the hype at a particular time. It depends solely upon the way users accept a certain crypto asset. This article deals with Stabenow- Boozman crypto regulation bill that has been proposed to take place and how it can make a difference.
What do the members of the crypto industry have to say about the needed improvements?
The various members who are known for representing the crypto community have given their viewpoints on the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act on the 15th of September. At a panel that has been conducted by the Senate Agricultural Committee, have been all praises for the bill mentioned herein. However, they came up with various suggestions that would be necessary for being about improvements for the betterment of all. These suggestions were also given in the hearing of this panel.
What was the suggestion given by them?
There were different aspects with which various members of the panel, as well as the speakers, had a problem. The definitions became a matter of concern for the five speakers that were present there in the panel as well as the Blockchain head of policy, Jake Chervinsky. He even took a step further and published a statement on the same bill moments after the hearing was conducted. In this hearing, all of the members, or to be more specific, the commenters expressed an interest to make the definition of commodities and security, a lot clearer. This was the only necessary change or improvement, as said by the speakers, that the bill has been lacking.
They said in a statement that even though the bill includes the matter of security and has provisions made in it as well, however, it does not dictate or display in any manner what it considers or does not consider as part of security. This statement was specifically made by the Vice President and deputy general counsel of Coinbase, Christine Parker.
A further concern regarding the bill
There have been various comments and remarks made about the bill and what it considers security. One such statement mentioned how the bill has left it for the perusal of the court and other such agencies to decide whether a crypto asset is a security or not. These crypto assets include all except Bitcoin and Ethereum. It has also been mentioned that this method won’t last for a long time as it has never in the past. It is bound to fail in the long run and it has significant implications for the consumers as well.
There have been also various issues about the fact that the bill has restricted various users and has allowed them to transact in a transaction or digital commodity that is not easily susceptible, however, it has not specified particularly what stands as easily susceptible. There have been numerous concerns about the scope of the bill among the users and the members of the panel as well.
Some issues have also been raised in this regard which hints at the bill posing a threat to the decentralized finance system. It has also been hinted that the bill has certain systems in place that can make it difficult for Defi to work within that mechanism.
The bearish position of the crypto market creates chaotic consequences among crypto investors. The rate of the top cryptos is falling increasingly. The last couple of months is a remarkable phase for the crypto market ever. The top two cryptos, Bitcoin and Ethereum price fall hit the market cap separately. Even Polygon network’s crypto Matic was decreasing its rate accordingly. Though the sellers’ pressure makes a big concern for crypto investors.
But this week was quite promising for crypto members. It is forecasted about the bull run. The temporary increasing price has indicated the upcoming progress in the crypto market cap. Polygon (Matic) price rose nearly 6% in the last 24 hours. Which is a green signal for the native investors.
Other Crypto Overview :
The top two currencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have continuous ups and downs that make the investors hold for a long period. Though the increasing rate of this week is making the situation in progress. As of the time of writing this post, Bitcoin is running at $23474.80. It is 1.40% at an increasing rate. On the other hand, Ethereum’s current price is $1637.49 and the increasing rate is 3.92%.
Noteworthy, the global cryptocurrency market is increasing by 4.8% to 1.12 trillion itself.
Polygon Overview :
The native crypto network Polygon’s crypto Matic is doing very well in the crypto market cap. According to reports, in the last 7 days, Polygon (Matic) price has increased around 71%. As of now, Polygon crypto is ranked 12 in the market.
In the last 24 hours, Polygon (Matic) price has risen nearly 6%. Which creates a massive crowd among the crypto investors. The exchange status of this crypto leaves a remarkable footprint.
Why Does Polygon Perform Well?
During this falling market, Polygon did its job better than the other networks. During this bear market, Polygon was able to perform well with some pre-planned strategies. During the price decrease, Polygon managed to retain its key support levels very well. After that, the price was increasing again.
Moreover, the partnership with Coca-cola and Disney in Spring and Summer 2022 makes the network perform well with unexpected increasing prices. Also, the layer 2 scaling solution is one of the considerable reasons behind it.
Polygon Current Status :
As of the writing time, Polygon’s volume is around $1.4B. Its price is now $0.903413. Polygon’s current market cap is $7.2B along with an 8.0B Matic circulating supply, which is 80% of the total.

Above all, the price change in the last 24 hours is +5.14%. The 7 days price change is +28.87%.
Experts’ Prediction On Polygon :
Government Capital :
According to Government Capital, Polygon might trade for over $3.7 per coin by 2023. Even go up to $20 within 5 years. Which indicates a bull run for long-term investors.
WalletInvestor predicted that Polygon’s price will be reduced as low as possible. It would fall to $0.035 by July 2023. According to WalletInvestor, Polygon might be a bad choice for upcoming years.
According to TradingBeasts, Polygon can reach up to $1.17 by December 2022. It would be stagnant at $0.9 for the whole of 2023. In 2024, it will again rise to $1.5. Which indicates a low to high rate in the long run.
Digital Coin Price :
Digital Coin Price predicted that in 2023, Polygon will reach a minimum of up to 0.93 and a maximum of $1.15.
The massive fall of the crypto market hits crypto investors. The first-ranking cryptos like Bitcoin, and Ethereum float in the ups and downs of the graph. Still, the valuable resistance phase has not occurred. Though the Bitcoin bull Michael Saylor’s comment on the Ethereum blockchain has raised a temporary relief among investors. This is the time when buyers can take their planned move. Price falls, which means the supply is high but demand is less. In this circumstance, sellers are expected to stagnate their movement in the Crypto market. But the selling pressure does match the expected graph according to the situation.
Still, sellers are dominating the crypto market even in this massive fall down. The high reducing price rate and stable seller activity leave the market a big concern.
Why Does Elon Musk Sell Crypto With A Huge Loss?
In the context of crypto, Elon Musk’s shocking step must be a considerable matter. Musk’s Dogecoin is sold with a million-dollar loss knowing the consequences! Whole social media contains only one question, why does Elon Musk sell his coin with a huge loss?
Initially, Musk stated that Tesla had not sold a single Dogecoin. Letter the announcement hits the market. It was officially announced that 75% holding of Tesla’s Bitcoin is sold.
In January 2021, Elon Musk has purchased Bitcoin at 1.5 billion US dollars. Whereas on June 2022, Musk sold it at 936 million US dollars. Which refers to a massive loss for Tesla.
It is reported that Elon Musk was forced to sell the holdings to avoid the loss of over 800 million dollars in Q2 of 2022.
Though Elon Musk did not make the price fall responsible for his selling. Rather he blamed the covid19 lockdown situation in China which raised the uncertain value of the amount.
Talking about Bitcoin, it is seen that Bitcoin is retesting one very important level of support. The market was running very critical resistance. The dumb money is already out of the market.
Asian Investors Tend To Sell More :
In the context of the investor’s demography, a massive population is from an Asian country, especially from India! More than 10 crore investors are from India. Which is approximately 7% of the population of the country itself. After India, countries like the USA, Russia, and Nigeria take the position of higher investors.
It is reported that Asian investors ars selling more than buying even in this price-fall market! Selling indicates that the price would increase sooner. Though according to several reports, the crypto price rate is expected to drop more. Then why are the sellers dominating the crypto market still?
To analyze the strategy, it should be discussed the value of different countries’ currencies. As the maximum number of investors are from India, then Indian rupees or INR’s value might be the main reason.
Cryptos are exchanged with Tether (USDT). 1 Tether (USDT) equals $1. But during the exchange in other currencies such as INR, the rate might differ. The average calculation shows that cryptos are 2 to 3 lakhs more expensive during purchasing for Indian investors than for US investors. It means buying is costly but selling will be profitable.
In this price fall market, selling pressure is still there for the anticipation of more falling. Bulk investors are from Asian countries. The country’s currency value is less than the USD. So for these Asian investors, this is a good time to sell. As it is anticipated that the price might fall more.
The price fall market is now a remarkable concern of crypto investors. Where demand slows down and price falls. Though the selling pressure becomes another concern of the crypto world.
Since the emergence of the new digital currency market in the financial sector, there have been quite a new reformation and regulations that have been introduced all around the globe. Like all aspects of the financial system, the cryptocurrency market has also been subjected to various highs and lows in its career graph in its attempt to establish a hold in the market. Various kind of cryptocurrencies has been introduced in the market out of which some have faced a downward trend whereas some have achieved international acclaim and have been adopted by various organizations as well. After having somewhat of a low year, Binance, which is knowns as a crypto exchanging platform has established its presence in France.
Take a look at the Binance system
After having somewhat of a low year, Binance, which is knowns as a crypto exchanging platform has established its presence in France. It was a nice and pleasant change after a year of being exposed to certain regulations and scrutinies that made it go through a tough time. It has collaborated with the finance system in France and has even decided to invest a sum of 100 million dollars as an aid to the cryptocurrency market as well as the blockchain system in France.
Certain steps are to be taken under this new system in France to support the start-ups that are emerging. In this, a new research office is to be established in France which is supposed to associate itself with an incubator program that is going to extend its help to the said start-ups.
What are the aims of this collaboration?
As reported by the authorities and experts of the crypto market, this initiative has been taken to introduce a whole new system and to come up with ways to protect and nourish this system. It is also done to get hold of all the tale t that is available and create a much bigger ecosystem. The research and development office that has been proposed to be set up in France, is a step towards achieving this dream.
With a strong fintech sector, France has proven itself to be capable enough to support this aim and help achieve this goal. It was also done after a thorough analysis of the prior graph of the fintech sector in France, which has shown positive trends and has been able to garner huge support from the investigation.
What were some of the problems Binance faced previously?
As mentioned above, Binance has just gone through a rough year and was under a lot of scrutiny. Problems arose in the relationship that is shared with its regulators who are present around the globe. In this, Binance had to face a lot of heat from authorities all around the globe in the form of investigations and bans from the topmost authorities. With all this happening, it had to suffer huge losses to the extent of shutting down some of its functions such as trading digital tokens as well as shutting down trading platforms in Singapore.
With the various changes that were occurring in the crypto market, the need to spread awareness about it, especially in its home market was felt and was even proposed to be done at the earliest. Their main focus was to offer educational programs as it was proven to be more fruitful than all kinds of traditional curricula. It is also the reason that educational programs also moved at a much faster pace than the traditional curriculum.
They have also tried to make the space more available and accessible to all those who wish to develop a better understanding of the space and the system. But for all these to be executed perfectly, whole teams need to come together to make it happen.
