Despite the dip, we're still feeling bullish!

Join us next week for the 2024 Crypto Outlook & Predictions

Welcome to All Things Blockchain your go-to source for keeping up to date with everything blockchain and crypto related.

Welcome to the first ATB newsletter of 2024,

there’s plenty of bullish activity for us to get excited about and we want you to be informed and ready for this up and coming bull run, so let’s get into it!

This months issue:

It’s just the start of 2024, and so much has already happened in crypto…

📉There was a false start, but the Bitcoin spot ETF was finally approved.. but where to now?

👀 Elon’s making moves in crypto?!

📧Open Opensea’s new wallet with just your email.

🎅🏼Reliving the amazing time that was our last meeting: NFT hunt and Christmas party.

🎫Next up on the agenda, Binance Australia is sponsoring our meeting next week, hosting a panel about the future of crypto in 2024 and we want you to be there.

THE TLDR;

📉 Bitcoin spot ETF and BTC dip:

After a false start (and “compromised” SEC X account) finally all 11 Bitcoin spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) were approved and began trading two weeks ago, after months of speculation and 6 years of waiting. We saw $4.4 billion of trading volume recorded on the first day, which was outstanding! Since then we’ve seen a giant dip in market price for various reasons.

The TradFi game is a long one and will be sure to deliver positive results over time but of course, the market is impatient as these aren’t the quick gains crypto is familiar with.

Okay, so now Bitcoin is down bad, is an ETF actually a good thing for crypto in the long run?

Bitcoin ETFs allows everyday people to invest in Bitcoin without the complications and risks of owning Bitcoin directly (for example opening a wallet, holding your private keys.) This means we'll see more “normal” people dip their toes in the crypto waters, ultimately driving up the demand and fuel the market coming into the next bull run!

👀 Elon is making moves in crypto:

Elon’s goal in 2024 is for X to become an "everything app," and last week it was granted a money-transmitter license from the US state of Utah, is the 15th state to green light his plans.

Elon is has openly spoken about these plans involving crypto, as both his companies hold Bitcoin and he of course holds doge 🐶

X has laid out its grand plans, saying that they intend to compete with financial services like PayPal, Visa and banks. This vision for the platform includes launching peer-to-peer payments, revolutionising the way we connect, communicate, and transact.

Ultimately X’s grand plans could be a driving factor in bring crypto adoption to the masses 🚀

📧 Opensea’s new email onboarding experience:

Aimed at creating a simpler onboarding experience, OpenSea has introduced a new self-custodial wallet powered by Privy technology that allows users to explore NFTs using just their email address. There is no longer a need for wallet extensions, seed phrases, or even crypto?

Yes, now you can even use your credit or debit card to buy your next NFT.

This three-click onboarding experience aims to be faster, easier and removing barriers to entry for individuals interested in NFTs and crypto but may have been hesitant to try.

This could be seen as positive innovation to onboard more people into the Web3 space or could be taken in the total opposite direction.

ATB recap:

Our last meeting we had an incredible turnout, with 70 people from our community joining us to hunt for NFTs across Brisbane, bringing Blockchain into the real world. Big thanks to Labrys, our NFT treasure hunt was a seamless and exciting experience for everyone involved.

After our NFT hunt, we celebrated the year that was, despite the long, cold, bear market.. the energy and enthusiasm of our ATB community throughout the year has been unmatched.

A big shoutout to all our sponsors your support is invaluable in bringing our community together.
