Web 3 Metaverse
Despite the recent "bear market" and tax initiatives, Web 3 metaverse institutional investors and developers continue on undeterred.
"Immune to the digital asset market’s manic depressive volatility, Web3 developers, institutional investors, and regulators preparing to tax metaverse profits are calmly continuing with business as usual across the world" in China, United States, Canada, France, India, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, & Vietnam.
“The digital asset market meltdown is healthy for those companies which offer viable and sustainable Web3 products and technologies such as Ethereum and Avalanche to continue on. I will be launching my Utherverse utility token during 3Q of 2022.”
Founder and CEO of Canada-based Utherverse

Why the Central African Republic adopted Bitcoin
"The Central African Republic's decision to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender came as a surprise to many, but the government argues that it will secure an independent financial future for the country, as the BBC's Damian Zane and Guy Bandolo report.
The president seemed to be following the Elon Musk style of cryptic cryptocurrency tweets.
Under the teasing heading "More to follow" CAR President Faustin-Archange Touadéra typed 'Vires in Numeris' - a Latin motto meaning "strength in numbers" that has been associated with Bitcoin. Then came his nation's motto.
This was shared with the world a month after the CAR became only the second country, following El Salvador, to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender.
The mineral-rich nation is ranked as one of the poorest in the world - a situation complicated by a near-decade-long civil war that has devastated much of the country. The government has recruited the Russian mercenary Wagner group to help in its fight against rebels.
The CAR's Bitcoin announcement left many scratching their heads and some wondering if it had more to do with a political shift away from France and towards Russia.
There has certainly not been a sudden explosion in the capital, Bangui, of businesses such as shops or cafes accepting Bitcoin as a means of payment.
According to an estimate from 2020, nine out of 10 Central Africans do not have access to the internet - a prerequisite for using Bitcoin.
That, along with a patchy and unreliable electricity supply, led some to question whether the CAR was the right country to test the theory that cryptocurrencies were set to replace traditional forms of money."

Crypto Tax Write-0ffs
"Large Crypto Losses May Not Become Instant Tax Write-0ffs, But Here’s What You Can Do"
"The recent crypto market downturn and the upcoming recession fears have led many investors to sell their cryptocurrency positions at huge losses thinking that such losses are 'instant tax write-offs' on their taxes.
However, this may not be the case. It could take years to receive the full tax benefit of the loss you incurred in 2022, especially if you are going into an extended period with no gains."

The Al Jalila Foundation is a philanthropic organization that relies on donations to deliver life-transforming healthcare programs in the areas of medical treatment, education, and research and has raised millions for this purpose since 2013. The foundation has just announced it will begin accepting donations in the form of cryptocurrency.
“We are proud to be the first healthcare charity in the UAE to accept donations in cryptocurrencies bridging the gap between physical and digital currency.”
-Dr. Abdulkareem Sultan Al Olama
CEO of Al Jalila Foundation
"According to Chainalysis, the Middle East is one of the fastest-growing cryptocurrency markets in the world, making up seven [percent] of global trading volumes. The UAE transacts approximately $25 billion worth of cryptocurrency each year and ranks third by volume in the region."
