Dogecoin is up 22,000pc in a year
Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency started as a joke, has doubled in value in the past day to 56p per coin after another surge. It comes after plans to send it $1 (72p) for "Doge Day" last month fell flat.

On Tuesday it hit 56p, a rise of 111pc in a week.
Since the turn of the year, Dogecoin is up by more than 22,000pc and the value of all the Dogecoin in circulation is now around £38bn.

ROCKDALE, TX — Milam County is the home of some big developments in the bitcoin mining industry. The site of Rockdale's decommissioned Alcoa power plant is now the home of Bitdeer, formerly known as Bitmain.
Tuesday, numerous Milam County leaders, from school superintendents, to mayors, took a brief tour of Bitdeer’s mining facilities.
Company officials wanted to share with the community their progress in development, since the Bitdeer/Bitmain's groundbreaking at the Alcoa site in 2019.
"We’ve built three lines [of computers] so far, have two more under construction," said Clint Brown, project manager for on-site construction at Bitdeer. "And if the cryptocurrency mining market stays as it is, we have plans on building the whole site, which would be 16 lines.”

What are central bank digital currencies and could they take on cryptocurrencies?

CBDCs are essentially electronic cash.
Like traditional cash, they would give holders a direct claim on the central bank and allow businesses and individuals to make electronic payments and transfers.
Access to central bank money beyond physical cash has so far been restricted to financial institutions like banks.
Haven't we already been using digital cash?
Using a debit or credit card, or payment app, to purchase coffees or make payments in shops is a form of digital money.
But this is created by commercial banks, based on central bank money credited electronically to their accounts.
The difference is this form of digital cash is not as "risk-free" as a CBDC.

Ethereum Hits New Record High Above $3,400, Extending Its More Than 300% Rally This Year

Card image cap

Interest in cryptocurrencies has surged over the past year with bitcoin continuously pushing new record highs. A number of factors including rising institutional interest and major companies such as Tesla buying the digital coin have been credited with its rise.
But Ethereum is different. It acts more as a platform that developers can build apps on. Ethereum is the name of the network or underlying blockchain technology, while ether is the digital currency used to power the platform.
There is growing excitement about the use of Ethereum in so-called decentralized finance, or DeFi, applications. These are blockchain-based financial services, such as lending, which could in theory bypass banks and brokerages.

Cryptocurrencies — worth the ride?
A contender for the crown
"At first, the rally was really led by Bitcoin because as a lot of the institutional investors came into the space, that would be their natural first port of call," James Quinn, managing director at Q9 Capital, a Hong Kong cryptocurrency private wealth manager, told Reuters.
"But as the rally has matured over the last six months, you have DeFi and a lot of DeFi is built on ethereum."
DeFi, short for Decentralized Finance, is a form of finance that relies on decentralized blockchain technology, as opposed to central financial intermediaries like banks. The technology uses "smart contracts," which runs on the Ethereum blockchain. Ethereum can link the transactions to certain conditions, the so-called smart contracts. This technology has become the foundation for another blossoming digital asset — nonfungible tokens (NFTs).

"I've dedicated my career to financial inclusion and empowerment, which requires bringing new and innovative solutions to staid processes," Rios said in a statement.
"Ripple is one of the best examples of how to use cryptocurrency in a substantive and legitimate role to facilitate payments globally."
San Francisco-based Ripple uses blockchain technology to send money across borders for banks and other financial institutions, touting its platform as a more efficient alternative to the interbank messaging network SWIFT. But it also uses XRP, a digital asset it says can act as a "bridge currency" for converting one currency to another in a matter of seconds.
