Football Fever is Infecting DeFi Project with Excitement

press release

PRESS RELEASE. Doha, Qatar: For the next couple of weeks, over a billion people are glued to the TV every day watching players of their favorite team working brilliantly together to win the ultimate prize. This time, what’s truly different is the role crypto plays in football. Christiano Ronaldo released NFT collections and team fan tokens.

And now, leading communities in crypto are joining football fever and even using it as an opportunity to bring crypto to the masses. With this World Cup, billions will learn about the Web3 ways of working together and winning big thanks to the Binance Football Fever 2022 campaign that allows anyone to get their football fever on while having a chance to win part of the $1,000,000 in prizes.

The DeXe DAO community, being a close partner of Binance and running a number of joint activities with them, has also joined Binance’s Football Fever in true DAO fashion — by proposing and passing onchain a sponsorship of Binance Football Fever. Football fans now have the opportunity to win $DEXE tokens and learn about DeFI. The DeXe community is full of football enthusiasts. The project is all about teamwork in Asset Management and DAO Management so Binance’s partnership was a natural fit with the DeXe DAO.

In Asset Management, traders have skills but need more capital to win big. Investors have the capital, but they need traders that can trust them to manage it. DeXe’s platform for asset management gives traders freedom to trade and is well-rewarded. Investors get transparency and multilayer security to protect their capital. DeXe maximizes your chances of winning while minimising the risk of losing — a world-class approach worthy of a World Cup.

Can you imagine if players on the pitch would get rewarded for how many passes they made rather than for scoring? This team would not win even a single game. This World Cup has proven that even teams with lower star power can still defeat those who are more talented on paper. It is important to be effective. DeXe coordinates incentives in DAO management so community members are rewarded for their most efficient DAO activities. Onchain proposals can also be used to modify any aspect of the DAO. DeFi is like football. It’s important to make it easy for people to score, defend and adjust strategies to maximize their actions.

With DeXe’s and Binance’s involvement in the World Cup media hype, football fans can both cheer for their favorite teams and learn more about DeFi. Binance and DeXe’s efforts to promote crypto among football fans could lead to the next World Cup being run on-chain.

About The Dexe Network

Dexe Network is an Asset and DAO Management platform that brings the dreams of DeFi into practical reality by giving fund and DAO creators the power to effectively, quickly, and securely grow their organizations.

Bank Protests and Holdups Continue to Rise in Lebanon, as Depositors Demand Savings

Bank Holdups and Protests Continue to Rise in Lebanon as Depositors Demand Their Own Savings

On Dec. 17, reports detail that residents in Lebanon have been staging sit-ins and protests at banks in order to access their own savings accounts. Since the economic collapse in 2019, Lebanon’s banks froze Lebanese bank accounts, and a number of branches have remained closed indefinitely. Although a few Lebanese have been forced to fork over their savings, most of the residents have fled or been arrested without any money.

Lebanon Banks Respond to Protests and Gunpoint Requests from People Wanting Their Savings Back

In August 2019, it became apparent to the world that Lebanon was suffering from a liquidity crisis, and there have been many reports that say financial coverups and U.S. sanctions put Lebanon’s economy in a vice grip. It has been reported that by late 2018, a handful of Lebanese commercial banks froze people’s accounts and by the first week of March 2020, Lebanon said it would default on its Eurobond debt.

The country began seeking restructuring agreements. However, Lebanon’s lira rate diverged from the black market rate in August . A report published in August 2022 details that the “black market rate is what the currency is actually worth now.” In June 2022, Bitcoin.com News reported on Lebanon’s inflation rate surging to 211% which highlighted the economist Steve Hanke, who said the country should leverage a currency board.

On Dec. 17, NPR columnist Ruth Sherlock described how poverty-stricken Lebanese have been outside of banks protesting in order to get access to their own savings accounts. In Tripoli, Lebanon at an IBL Bank branch, Sherlock said a 53-year-old woman named Zahra Khaled sat in a wheelchair and would not leave the bank until the staff gave up her life savings. Sherlock reports that Khaled said the bank had frozen “tens of thousand dollars”.

Sherlock explains that Khaled’s protest was “one of the gentler tactics” and that some are using real or toy guns in order to recover their money. The NPR reporter does note that some Lebanese who resort to this tactic only want “what they are owed.” Countless reports, littered all over the internet, confirm Sherlock’s account that says Lebanese bank accounts have been frozen since 2019, since the onset of Lebanon’s economic collapse. In 2020, angry depositors and protests got so bad that the commercial banks armored the fronts of specific branch buildings with steel and cement walls.

Reuters reported in Sept. 2022 that “bank holdups snowball in Lebanon as depositors demand their own money,” as these types of acts have become a normal occurrence in the country. Reuters elaborated that five depositors held up banks in order to access their own funds and some depositors managed to get around $60K, while some people were taken into custody. In Nov. 2022, Al Jazeera detailed that banks in Lebanon reopened for two weeks. Al Jazeera was told by a Lebanese photographer that he had been waiting for a cheque to be cashed for over two weeks.

Sherlock’s reports stated that Khaled had negotiated for hours with the bank staff but they eventually left. Khaled was then taken out by the Internal Security Forces, Lebanese police who are also known as the ISF. Lebanese depositors have protested at banks such as Bank Audi, IBL Bank and Blom Bank. On Dec. 16, Reuters reported that a U.S. court of appeals has decided that Lebanese commercial banks can be tried outside Lebanon.

What do you think about Sherlock’s report that says Lebanese citizens are resorting to trying to get their funds at gunpoint and assembling protests in front of Lebanon’s commercial banks? Please comment below to let us know your thoughts on this topic.

Drones, Fertility, and Defi — A Look at Alameda Research's Massive $5.4 Billion Portfolio of Investments

A lot has been revealed about the Alameda Research and FTX disasters in the past few weeks. The Financial Times (FT), Dec. 6, published documents that show Alameda’s investment portfolio. It claims the company spent over $5 billion on hundreds investments. Some funds were used for odd investments, such as Ivy Natal, a fertility company, and Brinc Drones, a drone manufacturer.

Alameda Invested in Close to 500 Firms and Projects

In the past two years, FTX 720 spent billions of dollars on investments, sponsorships and deals. At the end of January 2022, FTX looked colossal after it raised $400 million from investors like Softbank Vision Fund 2, Tiger Global, Temasek, Paradigm, and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board.

After the Series C raise, FTX was valued at $32 billion and the former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) said FTX aimed to expand the firm’s “global reach.” After the revelations concerning Alameda’s balance sheet during the first week of November, FTX and SBF’s quantitative trading firm imploded.

Since then, FTX’s parent firm West Realm Shires Services, Alameda Research, and approximately 130 additional affiliated companies filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This week on Dec. 6, 2022, FT released documentation tied to Alameda Research’s investments, which were close to 500 investments that added up to roughly $5.4 billion.

In addition to FT, The Block’s VP of research, Larry Cermak, exported the entire list of Alameda-based investments into an excel sheet. Cermak also noted that Alameda has made the largest investments in Genesis Digital Assets and Anthropic Digital Assets DA AG. K5 and IEX.

If the data is correct, the documentation shows Alameda spent a lot of money in blockchain projects, foundations, tokens and non-fungible token projects (NFT). These include Hole Tokens and Near, 1inch, Lido. Xterio. Aptos. Polygon for instance received $50,000,000 from Maclaurin Investments Ltd., otherwise known as Alameda Ventures.

Near gathered $50 million from FTX Ventures Ltd., and Maclaurin gave Near $30,000,000. FTX Ventures gave Yuga Labs roughly $50 million and Aptos scored $74.9 million from Clifton Bay Investments, also known as Alameda Research Ventures. Alameda has invested in well-known funds such as the Multicoin Venture Fund II or the Skybridge Capital II.

Money was sent to Chinese news companies like Blockbeats and O’daily News. The company invested in Paxos and Starkware, Circles, Fanatics (AxieInfinity), Paxos, Paxos, Paxos, Starkware, Circles, Starkware and Starkware. An Ohio-based produce and vertical farming firm called 80 Acres got $25 million and $11.5 million was funneled to a firm called Geniome.

A whopping $500 million went to the artificial intelligence (AI) research firm Anthropic and $1.5 million went to a fertility venture called Ivy Natal. FT described Alameda’s portfolio as a “disparate bundle of nearly 500 illiquid investments split across 10 holding companies.” The FT author further notes that “FT makes no claim as to the data’s accuracy or completeness” as far as the documentation of Alameda’s investments are concerned.
