SBTs vs. NFTs
Binance Tweeted, "Soulbound Tokens vs. Non-fungible Tokens Unlike NFTs, SBTs are designed to be permanent, non-transferable tokens that allow individuals to verify their personal credentials on-chain. Here are some other key differences"
Want to learn more?
According to NFT Now, a non-fungible token (NFT) is a digital token of information (data) that lives on the blockchain. Every NFT has its own identification code and metadata, meaning that every NFT is unique and the data it contains cannot be falsified. Regular NFTs can be sold or given away for free. In other words, they aren’t tied to one specific person or organization.
Soulbound tokens are just permanent, non-transferable NFTs, meaning that they can’t be given away or taken from your private blockchain wallet.
The concept behind Soulbound Tokens seemingly comes from the game World of Warcraft (WoW) — which also inspired Buterin, who derived the name for his beloved Ethereum blockchain from the franchise. In WoW, “soulbound” is a property of an item that prevents it from being traded or mailed to another character. With this in mind, it’s easy to see where both the name and idea for SBTs come from.
Some SBTs may act like real-life achievement badges, similar to the badges you get in a video game when you complete a specific task or make it past a set milestone. However, instead of receiving a badge for defeating a foe or saving the princess (or prince!), you get an SBT for completing a degree, earning a professional certification, winning an award, and so on. Even if it’s for something as niche as being the world’s leading expert on kickball, your corresponding SBT would serve as a way of verifying that achievement to others.
But SBTs aren’t just about achievements. They can be tied to a myriad of other traits, features, and personal information. For example, an SBT could be used to verify your name, birthday, political affiliations, charitable giving, criminal record, medical history, nationality, religious upbringing, military history, and more. The possibilities are literally endless.
The thing to remember is this: Soulbound tokens are every bit of factual information about you broken down into individual NFTs and stored in your private blockchain wallet.
The article goes further into how SBTs work, possible use cases, and possible drawbacks. Please read the full article to get a clearer understanding!
Bank of Russia Wants to Ban Miners from Selling Crypto to Russians
The Russian central bank continues to maintain an extremely negative stance on cryptocurrencies, proposing to ban local miners from selling coins to local people.
The Bank of Russia has supported the idea of legalizing cryptocurrency mining in Russia as part of a draft bill introduced in mid-November 2022.
However, the Russian central bank wants to allow miners to sell their crypto only on foreign exchanges and to non-residents of Russia, the local news agency Interfax reported on Dec. 7.
“We believe that cryptocurrency obtained as a result of mining can be sold exclusively using foreign infrastructure and only to non-residents,” the Bank of Russia’s press office reportedly said, adding:
“In general, we adhere to the position on the inadmissibility of the circulation of digital currency on the territory of the Russian Federation.”
NFTs and Web3 Take Over Miami During Art Week
Burgeoning digital technologies like NFTs and Web3 took center stage in Miami during the city's Art Week this year, set to coincide with the annual Art Basel Miami art fair. At the Center for Visual Communication in Miami, a group of Argentinean artists presented a new machine for the scanning and creation of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) based on physical artworks. Their invention, called the Sublimart Machine, creates a high-resolution digital scan of an artwork with an array of lights at varying angles, before cutting it with a laser in a specific pattern that is used to prove that the subsequently created digital image of the artwork, or NFT, is based on the original unique artwork.

UK Crypto Bill to Restrict Services from Abroad: Report
Despite the United Kingdom’s Conservative Party’s rhetorical embracement of crypto under the new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, the upcoming regulatory framework will reportedly tighten scrutiny over the industry. The legislation updates will broaden the powers of the financial regulator and probably limit foreign companies’ operations in the United Kingdom.
According to a Financial Times report, the FTX collapse has influenced the course of the regulatory regime in the United Kingdom. Reportedly, the Treasury is finalizing a package of guidelines that will enable the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to monitor the operations and advertising of crypto companies in the country. There also would be restrictions on selling crypto on the U.K. market from abroad.
Although the report doesn’t reveal more specifics on those restrictions, assumably, they’d be enforced to force the companies to register with the FCA. The procedure is tough enough already, as 85% of the applicants did not pass the FCA’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) tests, according to its chief executive Nikhil Rathi.
The guidelines are being prepared as a part of the financial services and markets bill. The large bill, which includes but is not limited to crypto regulation, has already been introduced to the British Parliament. While the U.K. launched its consultation on crypto in 2021, according to the FT sources, it could slip into 2023 due to “fast-moving events” in the industry. [Source: Cointelegraph]

"Some legitimate questions were asked about why the APR was so high. This was at launch with no one farming so it was inflated. It has now adjusted since people have began farming. Current APR is now at 168.8%. The more people farming and earning rewards, the less APR."
