Today it's about the Bitcoin wave in Brazil, the benefits of Stellar Lumens, and other cryptocurrency issues.
Brazil now holds the trading record for Bitcoin in Latin America. Twenty-four hours before the editorial deadline, Brazil's Bitcoin traded worth about $ 800 million. This was reported by the data tracker CoinTrader Monitor.
A few days earlier, the Brazilian crypto exchanges had already breached the 100,000 mark in 24-hour traded Bitcoin. That too was a new record, as the website Criptomoedas Fácil reported.
Brazil is struggling with rising inflation. The currency devaluation is currently 4.58 percent. This circumstance and the rising price of Bitcoin should have fueled the now observable trading volume.Rampant inflation has also led to increased adoption of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in Venezuela and Argentina. The advantages of the cryptocurrencies prove to be valuable storage and the transnational sending of funds.

The Stellar team is currently pleased with a comment by Ethereum researcher Virgil Griffith. He had recently recommended Stellar instead of Ethereum for fast cryptotransactions. He also said that you really do not need to use the Ethereum platform to just move tokens.
“I actually advised someone a few months ago to actually go #Stellar instead of #Ethereum. […] If you just want to send tokens around, just fungible tokens […] really, really fast, you probably do not really need us. ” – Virgil Griffith, Ethereum https://t.co/kRpRCT0dJH
