The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold a public meeting at which it will discuss its “New Era of Smarter Food Safety” initiative.
Per a Sept. 17 announcement, the FDA set up a meeting with a group of international stakeholders on October 21, 2019, to discuss public health challenges and the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act. Specifically, the FDA intends to establish “a more digital, traceable, and safer system” to protect consumers from contaminated food.Efficient tracking of contaminated food

It is pretty fair to say that when people think of regulatory bodies and governments in the crypto industry it not normally positive.
This time a leading UK lawyer Martin Bartlam, a partner at DLA Piper and one of the world’s leading legal experts in financial technology, says that the UK’s track record on cryptocurrencies had been “incredibly positive.”
“It’s almost hardest to see what [the UK’s] done, but in a way that is the beauty of it,” said Bartlam. “They’ve not made it more complicated, there’s no additional compliance or analysis that you need to do,”
“They’ve really kind of created an opportunity for people to do [...]
A prominent bitcoin supporter and a co-founder of a crypto asset investment company BlockTower Ari David Paul believes that altcoins pose no threat to Bitcoin as they use different Proof-of-Work algorithms; however, forks that interfere with the mining of the SHA-256 algorithm might be dangerous rivals in hash wars.
“It makes sense for bitcoiners to be extremely antagonistic to contentious hard forks like 2x which threaten the BTC security model. It makes no sense to be antagonistic to altcoins that use a different PoW algo or another consensus mechanism.” he wrote in a Twitter thread.
He believes that at this stage altcoins satisfy the demand for certain [...]
Comparing cryptocurrency trading to gambling is like comparing crypto tribalism to religion: the analogy is correct, but it’s also tired. What bears emphasizing, then, isn’t that crypto trading and crypto gambling are often indistinguishable, but the extent to which the two disciplines permeate the cryptosphere. From the most popular dapps to the leading hacks, everything of interest within the space can be interpreted as a form of gambling. It’s the reason why crypto is so fascinating and so addictive.
The gamification of everything is the endgame of life itself. Soon it will be impossible to go for a jog without receiving a high score or being showered in shitcoins for [...]
After years of waiting, and despite a relatively high and impressive volume of Bitcoin trading, Venezuela has finally got its very first Bitcoin ATM.
According to the CoinATMRadar, the Latin American firm PandaBTM has installed a crypto ATM in San Antonio del Táchira. The machine is located inside a small convenience store, called Viajes e Inversiones HC (Travel and Investments HC), by the side of the main road towards Colombia.
The ATM supports Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and DASH, as well as sovereign bolivars (the official currency of Venezuela) and Colombian pesos. (Both fiat currencies are used interchangeably among residents of the [...]

Today’s news tells that France’s Economy and Finance minister Bruno Le Maire said at the opening of the OECD conference on cryptocurrencies that France would block Libra’s development in Europe because it threatens the monetary sovereignty of governments. Also, Santander announced today [...]
Battle Royale games have exploded in popularity since H1Z1 launched in 2017. The game sold over one million copies while in early access. Household names such as Fortnite and Apex Legends, though, have outshone the Steam-based game. Viewer counts for H1Z1 plummetted, resulting in a broke-ass league and player-oriented payment issues.
Sid Meyer’s Civilization 6 has decided to put a strategic spin on the battle royale genre. Unlike Ubisoft’s poor Ghost Recon decisions, the concept of a strategic—not tactical—battle royale may reap greater success.
Folding the elements into a cohesive and unique game generally works much better than hacking out the dredges of a [...]

Although it’s not undoubtedly [...]

Tom Lee, one of the founders of Fundstrat Global Advisors, believes that lowering the FED rate will allow Bitcoin to update local highs and reach $20,000 per coin by the end of this year.
The expert explains this forecast by the fact that Bitcoin is now being used to hedge risks. When the Central Bank lowers rates, liquidity in the market rises, and investors direct funds both to high-risk instruments and to safe assets for hedging.
Now, according to some experts, Bitcoin has begun to be used as a new safe asset, which with a decrease in the Fed rate, will lead to a rise in demand for it and will contribute to a price increase.
Meanwhile, this mechanism [...]
