Australia Zoo is launching a ‘Wildlife Warriors’ NFT, in a bid to raise awareness and funds for the world’s species

The venture is in partnership with the startup company Meadow Labs, and will focus on a variety of animals at the zoo.

“At Australia Zoo we’re always open to new ways that can help continue our Wildlife Warriors mission,” says Robert Irwin, who is the son of the iconic crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin.

The limited series will be created on Algorand, which is a proof-of-stake blockchain crypto protocol.

“Any innovation that can help our conservation efforts, particularly one that shares our vision of protecting the planet, is something we’re thrilled to support.”

“This green chain and new technology allows us a new avenue to continue to fight for the protection of our wildlife and wild places.” Irwin says.

They NFTs will be randomly generated and 100 per cent unique to the buyer. This means there will be no duplicates in sight.

“It’s fantastic to see Australia Zoo and Meadow Labs bring wildlife conservation fundraising to the Algorand blockchain, as it really fits in with our core value of sustainability,” says Adriana Belotti from Algorand.

“I’m sure that collecting these NFTs will resonate with everyone who has a soft spot for the iconic Aussie wildlife, both here and abroad,” she added.

The transactions are processed through a ‘smart contract’ in which 100 per cent of primary sales are automatically transferred to Australia Zoo.

The NFTs be available globally and available for purchase with via MoonPay.

What is causing the crypto market crash?

Crypto Braced For $300 Million Game-Changer As The Price Of Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, XRP, Solana, Cardano And Dogecoin Swing

Bitcoin, ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies are still struggling despite a wave of bullish announcements (and an eye-popping bitcoin price prediction).

The bitcoin price has again crashed under $20,000 per bitcoin, dragged lower by the Fed’s decision to keep interest rates near zero until 2023.

While the US government’s $300 million investment into bitcoin mining is a game-changer, it remains to be seen if it will be enough to boost the cryptocurrency market.

The current cryptocurrency market crash can be attributed to a few key factors.

Firstly, the US government’s announcement of a $300 million investment into bitcoin mining is a game-changer.

This investment will likely increase the hashrate and drive up demand for GPUs, which will in turn push up prices. Secondly, the Fed’s decision to keep interest rates near zero until 2023 is also weighing on the market.

This decision makes it less attractive for investors to put their money into cryptocurrencies. Lastly, there are concerns that the recent bull run was driven by speculation and that the market is now cooling off.

Will the $300 million investment be enough to boost the market?

It remains to be seen if the $300 million investment from the US government will be enough to boost the cryptocurrency market.

While this investment is definitely a positive development, it may not be enough to offset the bearishness in the market caused by other factors such as the Fed’s decision to keep interest rates near zero. Only time will tell how much of an impact this investment will have on the market.

In the meantime,crypto investors should brace for more volatility in the markets.

Crypto whales exchange $10 million in Shiba coins

Published

on

Two large anonymous cryptocurrency wallets exchanged a total of 855,614,973 Shiba Inu meme coins, worth approximately $9.6 million.

The data, published on the WhaleStats website, reveals that these top Ethereum wallet owners have increased their SHIB stash by $134,767,965 in value since September 21.

While it is unclear what the motives behind these transactions are, it seems that the recent surge in demand for Shiba Inu meme coins has led to a significant increase in their value.

With the price of SHIB currently sitting at $0.0016 per coin, it will be interesting to see how these anonymous investors choose to cash out their profits.

So, these whales made a profit of about $649 000 in just three days due to the price increase of both assets.

As the Ethereum blockchain network’s meme currency becomes more popular among cryptocurrency investors and traders, its price is also growing rapidly.

An Australian lawmaker wants to tackle the rise of China’s digital currency

Andrew Bragg is the man behind the changes, he’s from the conservative Liberal Party who wants to put restrictions in place to avoid the use of the digital Yuan.

In a draft bill, the MP wants banks to share details about whether or not they have accepted digital currencies from China.

Of course, Beijing is currently running trials of its sovereign currency at the moment.

But it’s left some lawmakers in a rush to get on top of it.

Earlier this year, the U.S. began setting up fresh rules around the digital Yuan .

In Australia, banks that are found to be breaching the rules could be penalised.
