Crypto Market Highlights: General News
- Yuga Labs published a new NFT collection on Saturday as part of the upcoming Bored Ape metaverse Otherside, which includes 100,000 land deeds for the virtual realm. Due to Ethereum’s inability to share the load, users were forced to spend hundreds of dollars in fees for unsuccessful transactions, and the platform was rendered unusable for hours.
- ApeCoin, the most popular utility token, has surpassed LINK, the native token of Chainlink, to become the 23rd largest crypto asset by market cap. ApeCoin’s admission into the top 25 list reflects a remarkable rate of growth that is rarely seen. When you consider the token’s relatively young age, its growth becomes even more significant and intriguing.
- Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger opened fire at the cryptocurrency industry during Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting on Saturday. “If you told me you owned all the bitcoin in the world and you offered it to me for $25, I wouldn’t take it,” Buffett said. In contrast, Buffett said he would buy a portion of the country’s farmland, or some of the nation’s apartments. He reiterated his view that bitcoin isn’t worth anything.
- The Samsung Group’s investment arm announced on Thursday that it plans to list a blockchain exchange-traded fund on the Hong Kong Exchange (HKEX) in the first half of this year.

Through a $30 million transaction, Samsung Asset Management has gained exclusive access to Amplify goods across Asia.
