The Guardian: Some Cryptographers Unhappy with the Way "Crypto" is Used in the Market
The Guardian reported on Nov. 22 that as Crypto becomes more widely used in the cryptocurrency industry, users searching for "crypto" on Google will see a lot of popular search results for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether, but according to Webster's dictionary definition of "crypto" is defined by Webster's Dictionary as cryptography, which is defined as "the computer encoding and decoding of information. "This shift in vocabulary has placed a heavy burden on cryptographers," the report said, adding that many cryptographers have been repeating the "crypto is cryptography" mantra on social media for the past few years with little success. Cryptographer Matt Blaze said, "I think calling cryptocurrencies 'crypto' is a bad choice, and it has negative consequences for both cryptography and cryptocurrencies."

Infrastructure bill set for a vote by Sept. 27 with no changes to crypto tax provisions
The controversial $1 trillion infrastructure bill will see a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives without any amendments to the crypto tax provisions by Sept. 27. The vote was agreed to after the House narrowly approved the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget blueprint in a vote of 220 to 212. Despite some initial pushback from moderate Democrats, the dissident voters were swayed after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi committed to pass the bill before Sept. 27. Pelosi stated: In late July, last-minute cryptocurrency provisions were added to the infrastructure bill in a bid to raise a further $28 billion through expanded tax obligations for the crypto sector.

Celsius becomes first CeFi or DeFi platform to cross $20B AUM
Crypto lending platform Celsius Network has reported it holds more than $20 billion in digital assets, making the company one of the largest in decentralized finance. In a Tuesday announcement, Celsius said its holdings had grown more than 1,900% in less than a year, from $1 billion in June 2020 to $20.3 billion as of Aug. 13. The company conducted an internal audit using technology provided by analytics firm Chainalysis, also determining it was adding roughly $1 billion in new digital assets monthly. According to Celsius CEO Alex Mashinsky, the platform’s growth could be attributed to its “low-cost lending and high-interest yield on 43 cryptocurrencies” as well as its community-centric model. The Celsius website shows the platform currently has more than 962,000 users, or roughly 1% of its goal “to bring the next 100 million people into crypto.”

FTX’s Bankman-Fried remains cautious about nascent NFT space
In an interview with CNBC’s Street Signs Asia released Tuesday, Sam Bankman-Fried expressed optimistic caution surrounding the pace of nonfungible tokens’ (NFT) growth over the last year, warning investors that they could become vulnerable to the volatile market dynamics if improperly educated in the space. The 29-year-old crypto entrepreneur and founder of trading company Alameda Research and crypto derivatives exchange FTX intimated that conversions have occurred with his own clients regarding their intent to purchase digital assets, but those same clients can become tentative when challenged on the genuine utility of their new asset. “It’s almost going mainstream faster than the mainstream understands what it is they’re adopting, which is a weird phenomenon,” Bankman-Fried claimed.
