Nano Labs founder: The withdrawal of VASP license application by leading exchanges is not a good thing for the development of Web3 in Hong Kong

Jack Kong, founder of Nano Labs, director of Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited, and member of the third-generation Internet development team in Hong Kong, stated in a post on X platform that major exchanges have withdrawn their VASP (Virtual Asset Trading Platform) license applications from Hong Kong. This will not have a significant impact on these exchanges, but it is not good for the development of Web3 in Hong Kong. The US Securities and Exchange Commission has already followed the trend, and Hong Kong regulatory agencies must keep up. Otherwise, the difficulty of developing Web3 in Hong Kong will greatly increase. Of course, we still firmly believe in Hong Kong and will continue to express policies that are beneficial to Hong Kong's development.

  • He Yi: Projects with high valuations cannot only be judged by market value, the era of haircuts may be coming to an end

    Binance co-founder He Yi wrote on Binance Square: "2017 was the era of ICOs, where you could make money as long as you got a share. In 2021, with the rise of DeFi, as long as you move fast, you can make money by participating in yield farming. Buying new instead of old is also a typical feature of this period. However, now IEOs are generally considered to have legal risks in most countries, so they can only be airdropped and priced by the market. This means that if there is a large circulation, the opening price of the project will be relatively stable, such as BB and LISTA, but compared to 2021, the rise is still too fast, lacking sufficient washing-out process.

  • Analysis: MicroStrategy’s BTC purchases offset German government selling pressure

    Some analysts believe that the German government's massive sale of Bitcoin is the reason for the sluggish cryptocurrency market. In addition, traders are concerned that the stock market may have peaked and that the US fiscal situation is weakening. According to previous monitoring by the on-chain crypto analysis company Arkham, a wallet related to the German government transferred 6,500 BTC to exchanges on June 19th, worth $425 million at the time. The wallet holds nearly 50,000 BTC, reportedly seized from the pirated movie website Movie2k that has been operating since 2013. Data shows that these BTC were sent to Kraken, Bitstamp, and Coinbase. However, MicroStrategy disclosed that it has purchased an additional 11,931 BTC for $786 million, which offsets the selling pressure.
