Cointelegraph: This article analyses whether the current drop in Bitcoin price and the crypto market volatility, in general, has somehow affected El Salvador’s strategy in the adoption of crypto assets as a legal tender and a store of value. Many blockchain and crypto experts stand in El Salvador’s favour and, among others, Lior Yaffe comments that the transition to Bitcoin as legal tender has been a strategic move to position the country as a local tech hub. The evaluation should be made in the long term, rather than on short-term price fluctuations.

Deep Cloud Finance: Blockchain gaming is an exciting vertical in the crypto industry, and many developers are exploring new models to increase the appeal of games while maintaining the essence of online gaming: game fairness.
