N26 will offer cryptocurrency trading
According to a Tweet, Austria will soon be the first country to allow an account holder to trade digital assets with other European countries. The cryptocurrency services will be provided by Bitpanda, a thriving digital asset market based in Austria. Bitpanda offers an established white label solution and thus has probably made Austria a strong test market. N26 is expected to offer trading of nearly 200 digital assets. Bitpanda also powers another fintech note, Plum.
Some things are so easy to do, you can nail them on the first try. What’s the simplest thing you plan to do today? Tell us in the comments! And if you are in Austria 🇦🇹, be prepared to say so #CryptoSoEasy. 😍 Coming soon in your N26 app. # iN26 pic.twitter.com/Sbj5JPrGaK

Bitpanda’s white label solution is advertised as an option for traditional banks and fintechs. Bitpanda also offers trading of more traditional assets such as stocks and ETFs. Bitpanda is a digital asset service provider registered with the Austrian Financial Markets Authority (FMA) under FM-GwG and with the French Financial Markets Authority (AMF) under the PACTE law. Bitpanda Payments GmbH owns a PSD2 license. N26’s move makes a lot of sense, as competitors offer similar services, so giving account holders the ability to trade cryptocurrencies helps keep digital banking relevant. N26 has around 7 million customers, after a slight decline when it left the US and UK markets. N26 received a European banking license in 2016 from the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), so it is well positioned for growth in the European Union.

Launch of Aptos
This week marked the highly anticipated launch of the new Layer 1, Aptos. The hype for L1 was huge for many reasons: it stemmed from Facebook’s Libra blockchain initiative, raised $ 350 million with large investors, and attracted Solana developers by being one of the first blockchains to use the Move programming language. Aptos focuses on user experience, scalability and cutting-edge technology!
The current 30-day annualized BTC volatility is 27.2%. This is the lowest in over two years, since July 2020. The 30-day annualized volatility is calculated by taking the standard deviation of the percentage change in the price of bitcoin over the past 30 days and then multiplying it by the square root of 365 to annualize it. The lower volatility here indicates a minor fluctuation in BTC prices recently. The price of BTC has been relatively stable lately, hovering between $ 18.47 and $ 20.34 since September 13. While there is still over $ 1000 of difference from all-time highs and lows, it looks mostly stable.
The main purpose of the DAO protocols
The main purpose of the DAO protocols (and the “governance tokens” that compose them) is to give users of autonomous digital infrastructures, or smart contract systems, a say in whether and how to modify the functionalities of these systems that could be modified. This is done by allowing direct, binding and on-chain control of these systems by the required voting majority of DAO token holders. In the MakerDAO community, these are called “executive votes”. In fact, DAO protocols are just mass multiplayer online games to tune the parameters of proprietary decentralized software systems. This is also why DAO tokens are distributed (via liquidity mining, etc.) mainly to users of these systems – users need a strong voice in the systems they rely on.
For on-chain governance, DAO tokens and DAO voting are in “God mode”: they are the first, last and only authority, operating according to the “code is law” principle. Whatever the quorum and majority rules written in the code, they must be strictly adhered to.
Rishi Sunak, crypto-friendly?
Former British chancellor Rishi Sunak, a friend of cryptocurrencies, has won the race for UK leadership. As The Block’s Lucy Harley-McKeown writes, Sunak’s coronation has some interesting cryptographic implications. A much maligned tech hub could make a comeback in the London cards. He also supported regulations to allow the use of stablecoins in the world of payments. However, there may be a grain of sand for the UK’s Crypto ecosystem that will likely find itself at the bottom of the to-do list given the current cost of living and the financial crisis – the fiscal collapse triggered a few weeks ago. What if cryptocurrencies change everything?
Crusoe Energy uses natural gas
A modular computer system built by Crusoe Energy Systems, a startup whose operations are headquartered in Denver, sits next to a facility at an oil well site in Montana. The company’s systems use natural gas normally burned in smokestacks as fuel for the computing power it uses to power the computers that generate cryptocurrencies! Crazy…

Typos to steal cryptocurrency
A group of hackers used typos to introduce malware to Android phones and Windows PCs. Using a technique called typosquatting, which involves registering domains that closely resemble those of organizations’ official trademarks, hackers obtain data and private keys from unsuspecting users, according to a report published by Cyble.
Hackers have created a network of malware-infected domains that take advantage of users’ inaccurate keystrokes when they access a particular website. According to a report by Cyble, a cybersecurity and digital risk assessment company, these domains mimic organizations and renowned applications, such as Google Play Store, Apkure and Apkcombo, among others. Users visiting domains are prompted to download an infected version of the required application, which will act as a vehicle for infection. The target device, be it an Android phone or a Windows PC, will then be infected with a version of ERMAC, a malicious Trojan that allows hackers to access several critical private data of the targeted device, including private keys.
