About Dota 2:

Dota 2 is a popular multiplayer online battle arena (or MOBA) game developed and published by Valve Corporation. In Dota 2, two teams of five players each control a hero character and work together to destroy the opposing team's Ancient, a large structure located in their base. The game is known for its complex mechanics, deep strategy, and intense competitiveness, and is played by millions of players worldwide.

DeFi vs. Web3

DeFi, short for decentralized finance, is an exciting new financial system that exists within Web3, a cutting-edge paradigm for the internet that is based on blockchain technology. With DeFi, users have access to new forms of value and utility that traditional financial systems simply cannot provide. Web3 is designed to empower users by giving them control of their own data, identity, and money, making the internet a fairer and more decentralized place.

While DeFi is built on existing smart contract platforms like Ethereum, Web3 itself is built on the internet. Together, these two areas of technological innovation are revolutionizing the world of finance and creating a more decentralized and secure alternative to traditional financial systems.

To learn how Web3 and DeFi benefit each other and the properties of both, read the full Cointelegraph article here.

YouTube Appoints Web3-Friendly Exec as New CEO

YouTube, which is owned by Google, has just appointed a new CEO, Neal Mohan, who is known for being Web3-friendly. Mohan was previously the Chief Product Officer at YouTube, where he oversaw the introduction of YouTube Shorts and YouTube Music. He is now taking over from Susan Wojcicki, who stepped down after an incredible nine years at the helm, during which time she introduced the revenue-sharing model, among other things.

While Wojcicki is moving on to focus on personal projects, Mohan is taking YouTube in an exciting new direction. He has already outlined plans to integrate a range of Web3 features, such as NFT-based content experiences and content tokenization, which could provide new revenue streams for creators. Mohan believes that these new technologies will allow creators to build deeper relationships with their fans and collaborate on exciting new projects. So, let's give a warm welcome to YouTube's new CEO, Neal Mohan, and get ready for some innovative new developments on the platform! [Source: Cointelegraph]

Uzbekistan Allows Foreign Firms to Deposit Funds From Crypto Trading

Great news for foreign businesses participating in the crypto market! The Central Bank of Uzbekistan has recently adopted amendments to its regulations for foreign exchange transactions, allowing non-resident legal entities to open bank accounts in the country. They can now deposit funds received from cryptocurrency trading into foreign currency accounts in Uzbekistan, which can then be transferred to an exchange to buy digital coins or to foreign-registered entities. Although their use for other purposes in Uzbekistan is prohibited, this is a significant step in the right direction for foreign firms.

Uzbekistan has been actively regulating its crypto market, with the National Agency of Perspective Projects under President Shavkat Mirziyoyev approving rules for the issuance and circulation of crypto assets in late 2022. The agency also licensed five crypto exchanges to operate in the country, including the state-controlled exchange Uznex and four smaller "crypto shops." In addition, residents of Uzbekistan were allowed to trade digital currencies on domestic exchanges in November 2021, and licensed crypto companies paid over $310,000 to the budget last year. This latest development is a positive sign that the country is continuing to move towards a more welcoming and supportive environment for foreign businesses looking to participate in the crypto market.

Sony Eyes Investment in Web3 Projects

Sony Group's internet services division is partnering with Astar Network to offer a Web3 incubation program. The three-month program will be hosted by Startale Labs, a Singapore-based company led by Astar's CEO Sota Watanabe. The program will accept applications from Feb. 17 to March 6, and will offer online mentoring and Web3 sessions on Slack. 10 to 15 Web3 projects from around the world will be selected to participate, with the demo day to be held in person at Sony's headquarters in Tokyo in mid-June.

This initiative will provide participants with opportunities to receive feedback from companies like Web3 Foundation and Alchemy. The Japanese conglomerate is actively exploring opportunities in the Web3 space and will consider projects that show promise for investment opportunities. Sony Interactive Entertainment, a subsidiary of Sony, published a patent in November 2022 that suggested NFTs could soon be integrated into the company's line of video game consoles, PlayStation. This comes after Square Enix, Ubisoft, Konami, and Sega, among other gaming companies, launched NFT projects.

This program is an excellent opportunity for aspiring Web3 developers to work with one of the most innovative companies in the tech industry. Sony's willingness to invest in Web3 is a clear indication that the technology has immense potential and is the future of the internet. With global VC firms and Web3 companies participating in the program, participants will have the opportunity to network with leading industry experts, receive mentorship, and develop their skills.
