Quote of the week:

“For any internet (non-physical) based business, I don’t understand why anyone would not accept crypto for payments.  It is easier, faster and cheaper to integration than traditional payment gateways. Less paperwork. And reaches more diverse demographic and geography,”Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance on Twitter.

In case you missed it:

  • The saga with Canadian cryptocurrency exchange QuadrigaCX continues. After the supposed death of its chief Gerald Cotten, the company reportedly lost access to 26,500 BTC, 11,000 Bitcoin Cash, 11,000 Bitcoin SV, 35,000 Bitcoin Gold, 200,000 Litecoin, and 430,000 Ethereum (roughly $150 million in total). But CryptoMedication, a crypto researcher and data analyzer, reveals that Quadriga might never owned $100 million in Bitcoin.
  • Ripple has partnered with 10 top universities under the University Blockchain Research Initiative (UBRI): Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Duke, Georgetown, Morgan State, Kansas, Michigan and Northeastern universities, the National University of Singapore and the University of Sao Paulo. These universities will be supported by Ripple’s resources to conduct researches, host conferences and help students desiring to work in blockchain and crypto-related subjects.
  • Chainspace, a small blockchain startup founded by researchers from University College London, has become Facebook’s first blockchain-related acquisition. The startup was working on blockchain scalability problems, however the social network isn’t acquiring any of Chainspace’s technology, as reported. Four of the five researchers that worked on Chainspace’s academic whitepaper will be joining Facebook.
