🗿 BTC is Up Big, Here's Why

U.S. crypto industry lobbying efforts hit record high in 2023

GM. It’s Miami Art Week. Sponsored by people who complain about $30 cocktails then buy $10,000 tables to see Guy Gerber.

For those not sipping champagne and art-staring, it’s business as usual. Spotify cuts 17% of its staff, and the US doubles down on nuclear power. Bitcoin hits a 20-month high as crypto lobbying continues its DC takeover. Are we back?

Without Further Ado. ☕ *knuckle cracks* ☕ Let’s get into it.

Conference Corner 📅

Art Basel Miami is here this week, and as always we have the event intel for our readers

Testnet Tuesday 🧪

This week we are highlighting an app simplifying the DeFi world. Meet FortyTwo.Money

FortyTwo promises to be the “Frontend for an Interchain World”. Meaning, the app has a portfolio view giving insights into a user’s interchain holdings and transactions. This view allows users to connect multiple wallets to see cross-chain assets, wallet breakdowns, balances, transaction history, and even claimable airdrops. 

FortyTwo is not just a passive overview tool. Perhaps its most exciting functionality is an interchain yield aggregator promised to be “simple, automated, and optimized”. FortyTwo vaults go a step further by auto-compounding the returns so that users can receive the highest yields, with lower risk. 

I’m sure some of you out there are lucky enough to have timed everything perfectly, but personally I would have a lot more $$ if I had a yield aggregator making my decisions for me. 

Although not yet released, FortyTwo boasts more exciting features like an Interchain NFT Gateway and even a tool to help simplify taxes. Something we’re probably all doing a little imperfectly. (jk IRS jk we only pay too much always). 

FortyTwo supports Cosmos chains (Neutron, Terra, Juno, Osmosis, and Kujira), but promises to expand to Ethereum, Arbitrum, and more after launch. 

Right now, FortyTwo is live on mainnet but in a closed test period. However, they have just announced a waitlist for early access to the full product which you can join below.
