This Week on Crypto Twitter: Musk Welcomes New Twitter CEO to Get to X—the Everything App

The most important tweet on Crypto Twitter this week was an announcement on Friday by Twitter’s owner and CEO Elon Musk naming his replacement, Linda Yaccarino, as the platform’s new chief executive.

Musk will continue serving Twitter as CTO and executive chairman.

Yaccarino left her job as head of advertising at NBCUniversal on Friday morning to take on the job of helping Musk transition Twitter into X, his envisioned “everything app» that will incorporate social media and payments (possibly including crypto) along the lines of China’s WeChat.

I am excited to welcome Linda Yaccarino as the new CEO of Twitter!@LindaYacc will focus primarily on business operations, while I focus on product design & new technology.

Looking forward to working with Linda to transform this platform into X, the everything app. https://t.co/TiSJtTWuky

Musk is also pro-crypto. His electric car company Tesla is currently one of the largest institutional HODLers of Bitcoin, even after it sold three quarters of its original holdings. He is a fan of Dogecoin, and his frequent tweets about it often pump the price. He even replaced Twitter’s blue bird logo with the Doge meme for a few days, so a potential crypto integration is conceivable, especially as a payments option.

Elsewhere on Crypto Twitter this week, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong kicked things off by praising the UAE for its “clear rule book” when it comes to crypto regulations.

The UAE 🇦🇪 deserves a lot of credit for being forward thinking on crypto. First dedicated crypto regulator in the world, a clear rule book published (!), business friendly plus strong customer protections. Really enjoying my visit so far.

Coinbase is a publicly traded U.S. company, but the hostile domestic regulatory environment is driving it offshore. The company recently obtained a license to operate in Bermuda and used it to open an international exchange offering Bitcoin and Ethereum perpetual futures. It is also currently talking with the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FRSA), a regulator of the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM)—a crypto-friendly free economic zone in the UAE—about opening a regulated exchange there.

Circle’s EU strategy and policy director Patrick Hansen on Tuesday shared a chart showing just how MiCA is stealing the wind from U.S. sails. European Union lawmakers last month approved MiCA, or the Markets in Crypto Assets bill, which now means the bloc has a unified regulatory approach throughout its 27 member states and licenses granted to crypto companies in one country can be “passported” to another member state. The rules on stablecoins come into force in July 2024, while other requirements will not be enforced until January 2025.

The MiCA effect 🇪🇺🚀

The share of VC investment into European crypto projects is up almost 10x in one year — from a share of 5.9% in Q1 2022 to 47.6% in Q2 2023.

Regulatory clarity attracts capital & entrepreneurs from around the world. Great development for crypto in Europe! pic.twitter.com/kUVp3rwlg3

On Tuesday, U.S. President Joe Biden positioned himself against the “MAGA House Republicans” aligned with “wealthy crypto investors” that look for loopholes to avoid paying tax. POTUS’s tweet was subsequently flagged by fact checkers who added the context that all crypto profits are subject to capital gains tax.

Also that day, a video shared by MicroStrategy chair and institutional Bitcoin whale Michael Sadler made the rounds. A keen and predictable Bitcoin acolyte, Saylor says that Bitcoin’s price “will chop its way up—with volatility—forever.”

I stopped by @PBDsPodcast this morning to discuss currencies, crypto, politics, #bitcoin, banking, macro, money, and the media with @patrickbetdavid. https://t.co/IctlB4l7gN pic.twitter.com/e6ljbGM124

Bitcoin mining revenue levels are now at the level they were at a year ago, according to a chart shared by Will Clemente, the co-founder of independent digital asset research firm Reflexivity Research.

After a tough 2022, with BTC up 65% YTD and transaction fees rising due to ordinals, Bitcoin miners are now bringing in the most revenue they have in over a year at roughly $40 million a day pic.twitter.com/kWbyIGoGRR

Stablecoin issuer Tether’s revenue is well over a billion, according to its Q1 2023 attestation. This means it comfortably outpaces Blackrock, the largest asset manager in the world. At its peak, Blackrock became the first asset manager to steward $10 trillion in assets in Q4 2022, but this has fallen to $8.59 trillion as of Q4 2023.

Blackrock Q1 net income: $1.16 billion
Tether: $1.48 billion

Another day, another crypto scammer brought into the light by blockchain sleuth ZachXBT.

Another day another influencer @DannyCrypt dumping on their followers undisclosed

He received 2% of the supply to assist with marketing but within 15 minutes of receiving the tokens market dumped the majority of them for $57k (31 ETH)

Meanwhile he tweeted “hodling my HODL coin” pic.twitter.com/XVrMh3HVDZ

Independent Ethereum educator Anthony Sassano called Ethereum staking “up only” on Wednesday.

There are now more active validators live on the Ethereum network than there were before staking withdrawals were enabled

It took less than a month for this to happen

ETH staking is up only

Retired ExxonMobil exec Tom Glass, who is currently seeking the Republican nomination for state House District 17, broke news that Texas lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in favor of an update to the state’s Bill of Rights to include the right of the people to own, hold, and use digital currencies.

The Texas House #txlege voted 139 to 2 tonight to add the following to the Texas Bill of Rights:

Finally on Thursday, Web3 law expert MetaLawMan wrote up a thread explaining just how important the news is that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce filed an amicus brief in support of Coinbase’s ongoing court petition to get the securities regulator to clarify its rules.

3/ The Chamber makes 3 arguments.

1. Regulatory uncertainty is killing innovation in the U.S.
2. The SEC is destabilizing the digital assets regulatory environment.
3. The SEC is violating Constitutional Due Process and Fair Notice rights.

And the topper is…
