Crypto’s a lot like a middle school sleepover – full of rumors, dramatic gasps, and ‘did you hears?’

This weekend, there were 2 big rumors making rounds:

RUMOR #1: The EU is banning anonymous crypto transactions and self-custodial wallets.

The European Union passed a new Anti Money Laundering Regulation (AMLR) proposal last week. And if you know anything about government proposals – they’re super long and boring. 

This one was 329 pages long (extra boring).

So, a lot of people did what you’d expect… wait for others to do the reading and give them the ‘Too-Long;Didnt-Read’ (TLDR) version. 

The problem? They all stated the EU was banning anonymous crypto transactions and self-custodial wallets – which wasn’t true. 

It was a game of Telephone gone wrong…

RUMOR #2: There’s an exploit that can steal crypto from your Apple devices.

Security researchers recently discovered a vulnerability in Apple’s newest computer chips (dubbed the ‘M-series’) that could let hackers steal data from Macs and iPads – including private keys to crypto wallets. 

The news spread like wildfire and caused investors to panic…

(I have one friend who hasn’t opened their Macbook since. Another one threw their iPad in the ocean).

Well, turns out the real-world risks are low. According to security experts

  • To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker would have to fool a user into installing a malicious app (and unsigned Mac apps are blocked by default).

  • Plus the time taken to carry out the attack is quite significant (ranging from 54 minutes to 10 hours in tests carried out by researchers), so the app would need to be running for a considerable time.

The bottom line: Self-custody wallets are not banned. Payments to/from self-custody wallets are not banned. And no, your Macbook isn’t going to explode. 

Be careful what you read out there folks.


Imagine having the processing power of a decentralized NVIDIA at your fingertips. 

DeepBrainChain (DBC) makes this a reality. 

DBC is shattering the limitations of traditional AI by creating a decentralized AI ecosystem.

Why DeepBrainChain is the Future of AI?

  • Decentralized Powerhouse: Unlike the centralized model of giants like NVIDIA, DBC distributes processing power across a vast network. This fosters transparency, collaboration, and accessibility.

  • Game Changer Alert: DBC + DeepLink = ultra-low latency cloud gaming with 3A Game+Depin+RWA features. The result? High-end gaming for everyone.

  • Own Your Future: DeepBrainChain Coin (DBC Coin) is the key to this revolution. By owning and staking DBC Coin, you contribute to the network's growth and gain access to its powerful GPU resources.

Think about the value proposition…

If a centralized NVIDIA can reach a trillion-dollar valuation, what potential does a decentralized version like DeepBrainChain hold?

Now… crypto’s 7-week streak of inflows has joined the list. 

According to CoinShares’ latest report

  • Digital asset investment products saw $942M in outflows last week – a new weekly outflow record. 

  • BTC led the way with $904M in outflows. Other major cryptocurrencies like ETH (-$34.2) and SOL (-$5.6M) also saw minor sell-offs. 

  • Other altcoins saw minor inflows. $DOT, $AVAX, and $LTC saw net inflows totaling +$16M

  • The majority of the sell-off (~$2B) came from Grayscale’s Bitcoin ETF. Most of the other ETFs saw inflows (totaling $1.1B), but it wasn’t enough to offset Grayscale’s garage sale. 

  • CoinShares’ experts believe last week’s price correction was due to “hesitancy from investors”, which led to lower inflows. 

We’ll see if inflows can bounce back this week.
