Naira in Free Fall: Cryptocurrency Ban Looms Amidst Economic Turmoil
Nigerians Blame Bad Policies for Plunging Naira As the naira continues its downward spiral, Nigerian traders are pointing fingers at government corruption and ill-conceived policies rather than cryptocurrencies. The blame game is in full swing, with accusations of reckless spending and foreign borrowing.
Chasing Shadows with Binance Government critic Kelvin Odanz slams the ruling party's monetary policies, suggesting they are merely "chasing shadows" by targeting centralized exchanges like Binance. With trillions printed and millions borrowed, the naira's future looks bleak.
Misplaced Priorities: Naija Government Under Fire Toyin Omotoso joins the chorus, criticizing the government's focus on arbitrary measures like a hard cap on USDT sales instead of addressing the root causes of the naira's decline. It's a case of misplaced priorities as Nigerians call for real solutions.
Binance Cap Controversy: A Tug-of-War While some users demand a reversal of the cap imposed on Binance to allow for a free market, pro-government accounts defend the move as a necessary step towards shoring up the naira. The battle lines are drawn amidst economic uncertainty.
Launch Date & Platforms: IDO on Spores Launchpad and Kommunitas is scheduled for February 24th.

BlackRock's Bold Bet: iShares Bitcoin ETF Takes Flight as Symbol of Progress
BlackRock, the financial titan, is making waves with its unconventional ad campaign for the newly minted iShares Bitcoin ETF. Breaking away from the glitz and glamour of its rivals, BlackRock opts for a minimalist approach to convey a powerful message.
Against a vibrant yellow backdrop, a sleek silhouette of an airplane poised on a runway catches the eye. The tagline? "Get your share of progress." It's a subtle nod to the soaring potential of digital currencies.
Industry experts are taking note. Bloomberg's Eric Balchunas praises BlackRock's ability to strike a delicate balance between tradition and innovation. By appealing to both seasoned investors and the tech-savvy younger crowd, BlackRock aims to secure its place at the forefront of the ETF game.

XCAD Founder Comes to KSI's Rescue Amid Pump and Dump Storm
Content Creator KSI found an unexpected ally in Oliver Bell, the mastermind behind XCAD Network, as allegations of a pump-and-dump scheme swirled around the YouTube star on February 15.
Bell, in a bold move, defended KSI, highlighting his role as one of XCAD's "biggest value adders" and revealing that the YouTuber had actually been buying more XCAD than selling. According to Bell, KSI is no Pump & Dump artist.
Not only is KSI still invested in XCAD, but he also boasts "other wallets" and remains a steadfast supporter of the token, Bell assured.
However, things took a turn when blockchain detective ZachXBT shared screenshots of KSI's X account, showing a hefty sale of $850k worth of XCAD. This prompted crypto sleuth Coffeezilla to cry foul play, labeling it a "classic pump and dump."
Coffeezilla drew parallels with CNBC's Jim Cramer, arguing that trading against statements made could be seen as an ethically questionable maneuver – not just in traditional finance but also in the wild west of crypto.

Crypto Phishing Group Strikes Again: Angel Drainer Siphons $400K from 128 Wallets
In a daring move, the notorious crypto phishing group Angel Drainer has made off with a staggering $400,000 from unsuspecting victims. Their weapon of choice? A devious malicious vault contract.
Blockchain security firm Blockaid uncovered this audacious attack, revealing that Angel Drainer cleverly exploited Etherscan's verification tool to mask their nefarious intentions.
At the crack of dawn on February 12, the trap was set. Angel Drainer unleashed their Safe vault contract, luring users into a false sense of security. Little did they know, they were signing away their digital fortunes.
With a single click, the 'Permit2' transaction sealed the fate of 128 wallets, leaving them empty and echoing with loss. The damage? A hefty sum of $403,000.
Blockaid was quick to clarify that this wasn't an assault on Safe itself, but a calculated ploy to exploit Etherscan's verification flag. They promptly alerted Safe and are working tirelessly to minimize further harm.
