3. G20 Countries to Build Crypto Policy Consensus

Group of Twenty (G20) countries recently unveiled plans to build policy consensus on crypto assets for better global regulation. This was stated by the Deputy Finance and Central Bank of the G20 countries in a meeting that took place last December 13-15, in Bengaluru, India.

India’s Secretary for Economic Affairs, Ajay Seth, stated in a press conference on Wednesday (14/12/2022), the aim of building a consensus on crypto asset policies is to achieve better global regulation. Taking into account the implications of crypto assets for the economy, monetary policy, and the banking sector must be studied for consensus building, he added.

The current owner and CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk, is reportedly looking for a new executive candidate to lead the company with that blue bird logo.

Meanwhile, the results of a poll recently conducted by Elon Musk regarding whether he should abdicate to leave the CEO position on Twitter, seemed predictable. As a result, 57.5 percent of social media netizens agreed that he should step down. Meanwhile, as many as 42.5 percent want the Tesla and SpaceX boss to still sit in the CEO chair. “Should I step down as head of Twitter? I will abide by the results of this poll,” Elon tweeted.

Jeff Wilser from CoinDesk, a world-class crypto media site, recently chatted with Alex Gladstein, Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation. At that time, Alex had just returned from a bitcoin conference in Ghana. “I was blown away,” said Gladstein. “I am amazed at the number of bitcoin entrepreneurs and leaders from different countries.” He met people from rural Cameroon, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, from Somalia, from conflict zones. “They all built bitcoin. It’s been absolutely incredible,” he said, which is why he believes that “global adoption is likely the number one important story for next year.”
