Mainstream crypto media attention is spread around in Europe, having the biggest French TV network airing Bitcoin (BTC)-related advertisement and full-page spread on cryptocurrencies published by Handelszeitung the best Swiss newspaper as we are seeing in today’s cryptocurrency news.
As previously reported by DCForecasts, Keplerk in October relaunched a program that gives the opportunity to customers to buy BTC in thousands of French tobacco retailers. 18-second television ad was created by Keplerk to promote the campaign and was aired several times in the day by TF1, French Twitter users report. The co-founder of Keplerk Adil Zakhar hopes to expand the project to more than 6,000 shops by the end of February.
The tobacco federation of France now has the license and permission to trade Bitcoin in the tobacco shops. The license was given to the federation by the French Prudential Supervision and Resolution Authority which is basically a branch of the Central Bank of France, but the central bank denied giving a green light for the licenses. The French stock market regulator also issued a statement related to the risks of dealing with cryptocurrencies stating that the Keplerk wallet provider was not licensed by French authorities. Keplerk decided to make their Bitcoin services available in January despite the rocky regulatory environment in France. About two months later, the company pulled their in-store devices saying they are a victim of their own success.
TF1 the best TV network in France has an average market share of 24% from the French tv market, and its owner is Bouygues, one of the biggest business groups with telecoms and construction arms which are the best in the market. The French company has previously made another video ad, which presents a man buying Bitcoin in French tobacco using Keplerk QR code-powered service.
In the meantime, across the border in Switzerland, the best newspaper Handelszeitung published a page-long guide to crypto with the title “Crypto for Dummies.’’ The author also made a remarkable call to action for the mainstream crypto media by saying:
“Discover for yourself that cryptocurrency is not just a speculative phenomenon, but also an amazing piece of technology that lets you gain and control assets and money on your phone – without relying on banks or other companies.”
Markets Fight For Support While Cosmos Outperforms Again
BitMEX Faces $300 Million Lawsuit Over Lost Equity
“Through this action, Plaintiffs seek damages representing the value of their equity interest in BitMEX, which is conservatively estimated to exceed $50,000,000, together with punitive damages of $250,000,000. Plaintiffs also seek injunctive relief and other remedies, together with their attorneys’ fees and costs.”This move is definitely a headache and as BitMEX faces a new lawsuit, it is something that is piling up in the negative news as of recently. According to reports from earlier, the exchange has seen its popularity enduring despite a major data leak in November. Bitcoin news outlets showed that executives at the exchange appear a little concerned by the blunder which saw a lot of email addresses sent out to other users.However, what still remains good is business - and daily trade volumes for the Bitcoin (BTC) derivatives are unchanged and currently at $1.6 billion. From this point, BitMEX is solid and remains one of the top exchanges in the world.
Circle Lays Off 10 More Employees, Rejects Connection To CEO Leaving
"None of this is related to Sean transitioning out of the co-CEO role. Sean will continue to serve on Circle's board.”As a reminder, Neville launched Circle with Jeremy Allaire back in 2013. As Circle lays off 10 employees now but has been strong over the years. We can see that they directed many of the changes in the industry in the recent years, including a pivot away from Bitcoin (BTC) as well as the acquisition of the cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex back in 2018.Last month, two former executives at Circle, Daniel Matuszewski and Julien Collard-Seguin along with a third partner founded the proprietary crypto trading firm CMS Holdings. This firm plans to invest 30% of its capital in the most liquid cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and around 40% to 50% into less-traded digital assets.Matuszewski, who left the company in August, admitted that he would not have started a similar firm a couple of years ago because of risk concerns and explained:
“There was always a non-zero chance that bitcoin would gap down, die, and never come back. [...] It’s a lot safer now, in that it’s probably not going to disappear.”
