Now let’s move onto the first news item. Although many people are still pessimistic about the future of crypto (despite its nice recent bullish runs), this billionaire investor is still highly interested in the Bitcoin token. Who is he? It’s Henry Kravis, the co-founder of the private equity firm KKR & Co. He is investing in a cryptocurrency fund of ParaFi Capital, as also reported by Bloomberg.
Next up, per a report on Cryptoglobe, Brave browser is said to soon enable its users to tip Basic Attention Token (BAT) on social media platform Reddit and on the video sharing platform Vimeo. Actually, they haven’t published an official announcement for this new feature yet. So how do we know about this? Reddit users have found that on Brave bowser’s developer version for desktops, they have spotted “tip” buttons on their Vimeo and Reddit feeds.
Moving on, Chainlink, a blockchain platform aiming to connect smart contracts to external data sources, is noticed to surge 117.2%, from $2.03 to $4.41, over three days after Coinbase Pro and Coinbase retail listed the token on their boards.
And for the fourth news item. It looks like Craig Wright, the self-claimed creator of Bitcoin – Satoshi Nakamoto, does not have access to his Bitcoin asset – not surprise and pretty typical of the dude. On May 3, the United States District Court of the Southern District of Florida issued an order asking Wright to send them a list of his public bitcoin addresses.
And finally the last piece of news for today. Per a report by Daily Hodl, MoneyGram, a money transfer company based in the United States, believes that global finance issues can be settled by utilizing Ripple’s XRP-based cross-border payment solution xRapid. According to Alexander Holmes, MoneyGram CEO, the biggest advantage of Ripple’s xRapid partnership is the ability to move capital in real time without the need to hold large sums of money in bank accounts around the globe.
