Crypto News Flash: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple and XRP, EOS, Litecoin (LTC)
From a big change at EOS to high profile athletes on the Ethereum network, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong says Bitcoin is in a correction period that will weed out investors who got in to make a quick buck.
As for government intervention in the crypto space, Armstrong believes crypto regulation will lead to the next version of the stock market.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will hold the team’s first “Digital Bobblehead Night” during the Dodgers vs. Padres game on September 21st. The promotion is the first of its kind in Major League Baseball, and is believed to be the first crypto giveaway in major league sports.
It’s part of a bigger plan to tokenize MLB players and create crypto collectibles that baseball fans can buy, sell and trade on the Ethereum network.
Don’t miss the first-ever Digital Bobblehead Night at Dodger Stadium! On 9/21, the first 40,000 fans will receive a @ClaytonKersh22, @redturn2 or @kenleyjansen74 Crypto token to be downloaded and added to their Ethereum wallet.
