Today's Headline - Former WeWork CEO Adam Neumann's New Real Estate Company Is Planning A Digital Wallet That Stores Crypto: Forbes Report



Former WeWork CEO Adam Neumann is back with new attempts to reinvent himself with the help of blockchain technology through the launch of a real-estate startup called Flow.

According to Davidson Goldin, a spokesperson for Flow, the company backed by a $350 million investment from Andreessen Horowitz, intends to launch a digital wallet that can store crypto – among other currencies, including U.S. dollars – in addition to the real estate management software it announced previously.

Neumann has previously tested the waters of cryptocurrency, cofounding a startup called Flowcarbon, which recently raised $70 million in a funding round also led by Andreessen Horowitz. The startup intends to tokenize carbon credits, but recently delayed a token sale citing poor cryptocurrency market conditions.

However, Goldin also stated that Flow would not be receiving crypto payments for rental of its apartments, nor would the company be “one of the largest implementations of blockchain in the economy,” before adding that a tokenized rewards program from Flow could involve cryptocurrency.




Chart of the Day - Total ETH Staked Reached ATH



The total amount of ETH staked reached a new all-time high of 13.29M ETH staked, as of August 16. This amount has almost doubled over the past year, despite the price of ETH declining by 43% over the same period

As of this writing,
Bitcoin (BTC) is changing hands at around $22,760, down 3.13% in the past 24 hours,
while Ether (ETH) is trading at $1,820, or down 1.82% during the same period.
Major altcoins are mostly trading in the red, with Cosmos (ATOM) leading the plunge by -12.19%, while Cardano (ADA) is down by 8.06%, Solana (SOL) -6.37%, Polkadot (DOT) -7.64%, and Avalanche (AVAX) -9.89%.

Notable gainers include:
Gnosis (GNO) at $191.97 (+8.65%),
Frax Share (FXS) at $6.13 (+3.47%),
Rari Governance Token (RGT) at $5.71 (+1.96%).

Notable losers include:
Sperax (SPA) at $0.0155 (-24.75%),
Unifi Protocol DAO (UNFI) at $9.69 (-15.75%),
Oasis Network (ROSE) at $0.0741 (-14.66%).

As of this writing, Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) were trading at $22,784 and $1,819, or down by 2.73% and 2.38 %, respectively. For BTC, as of today’s price, it has been down by 7 days consecutively (-6.72%), diverging from the U.S. equity markets, which saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite (IXIC), and S&P 500 (SPX) up by 1.7%, 0.77%, and 1.39%, respectively during the same period.


In terms of technical outlook, Bitcoin (BTC) failed to sustain above the 20-day EMA ($23,461), coinciding with the weekly support level of $23,470 on Thursday.

As mentioned in yesterday’s technical outlook, a break and close below this zone may see the bears bringing the price back to Aug. 4’s low of $22,398, which coincides with the 23.6% Fibonacci level measured from Mar. 28 - Jun. 18.

If the bulls fail to sustain above the aforementioned support zone on a daily candle, this may lead BTC price to plunge towards the $21,000 psychological level which forms a support zone along with the Jul. 26 low of $20,712.


Ether (ETH), on the other hand, remained resilient for now, even though it had failed to sustain above its 12-day EMA ($1,838) on Thursday.

So far, the 50% Fibonacci level measured from Apr. 3 - Jun. 18, along with the weekly support level at $1,800, which coincide with the 20-day EMA ($1,777) still forms a strong support zone.

If the bears manage to pull the price below this zone, ETH may fall towards the $1,700 psychological level before diving deeper into the weekly support level at $1,610, which served as strong support from Aug. 1 - Aug. 5.




Influencer of the Day - Golden Globe and Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins releases an NFT collection



"The Rebel"

The project, called The Eternal Collection, includes three drops centered around a set of 10 digital animations of Hopkins digitally rendered as interpretations of various Jungian character archetypes the actor has portrayed throughout his career. Their designs also incorporate aspects of Hopkins' work as a painter.

The animations will be roughly 30 to 45 seconds in length. Each of the ten animations will feature a separate release of 100 PFP variants of their particular Jungian character theme, for a total of 1,000 NFTs in the PFP portion of the drop.

Hopkins will donate a portion of the proceeds from the auctioned work to a charity of his choosing.
