Key Takeaways

  • Sphere 3D has announced an agreement to buy 60,000 pieces of Bitcoin (BTC) mining equipment, with which it estimates to generate at least 15% of the hashrate of the current global network. This deal would also put Sphere 3D on pace to be one of the largest carbon-neutral bitcoin miners.
  • In a recent tweet, Ethereum (ETH) co-founder Vitalik Buterin discussed some proposals to add ‘blob-carrying transactions’ in a near-future hard fork, bringing higher scalability to rollups before full sharding is complete.
  • Polkadot (DOT) deposits and withdrawals are now live on the Crypto.com app via Cronos (CRO) chain. In addition, Crypto.com recently announced a multi-year partnership with the LeBron James Foundation to provide crypto education to underserved communities.
  • Cronos (CRO) saw a +7.99% increase in total transactions to 14.00M and an increase of TVL to $2.23B (+14.95% week-on-week). The total number of wallet addresses now stands at 344,336, up +1.37% from last week.
