Here's this week's intelligence on the tokens and markets relevant to ReFithat are contributing to growth of the Tokenised Earth Economy.
State of the Markets
It’s been a bullish week for the crypto markets, as the Luna Foundation keeps buying Bitcoin and now has over a billion dollars of $BTC in its treasury to back the $UST stable coin! Will the markets lose steam after Luna has completed its acquisitions, or will the impending $ETH Merge keep the bulls running? The adoption of Bitcoin by nation-states is continuing, as Russia says it will now accept $BTC as payment for its oil and gas, to circumvent economic sanctions and El-Salvador has listed a Bitcoin bond – which will have half their proceeds invested in Bitcoin while the rest go towards constructing a “Bitcoin city” at the foot of the Conchagua volcano that willl use renewable thermal energy for mining the coin –though not without some trembles, as reported below in Earth State News.
