For the Culture
We have made the decision to close the general chat and continue providing more value for active token holders. (We will continue to allow established artists who request access to gain access to the platform in the form of gifted tokens from NFTCulture staff). Additionally, we’re developing two bots that will drive community engagement and rewards. Finally, I have passed the merch baton to Ashley who will make sure we finally get it done in a reasonable amount of time. We’ve been working on quite a few things but waiting for the bull market to start to return to implement them. More announcements to follow.

JP Morgan Chase’s CEO, Jamie Dimon, recently expressed his views on cryptocurrency and bitcoin during an appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box. He stated that bitcoin is a “hyped-up fraud” and a “pet rock”, but that blockchain technology is useful for moving information and money. He also mentioned that he was not surprised by the bankruptcy of crypto exchange FTX, calling it a “decentralized Ponzi scheme” and stating that crypto itself does not serve a purpose.
Blockworks reported that the Winklevoss twins, who own Gemini, announced a potential legal dispute against Barry Silbert and Digital Currency Group (DCG) after Genesis filed for bankruptcy. The situation seems to be escalating.
They also highlighted a tweet from popular Twitter handle @MattFiebach, who noted that while the value of Bitcoin has decreased by around 70% from its all-time high, the hash rate (the measuring unit of the processing power of the Bitcoin network) recently reached an all-time high.
