Trading Giant eToro Halts Purchases of Polygon (MATIC), Algorand (ALGO) and Two Other Altcoins Amid SEC Crackdown
"...Popular social trading platform eToro is halting purchases of layer-2 scaling solution Polygon (MATIC), smart contract platform Algorand (ALGO) and two other altcoins after a US regulator labeled them as securities.
In a new announcement, eToro says that US customers will no longer have the ability to purchase ALGO, MATIC as well as gaming metaverse Decentraland (MANA) and privacy-focused protocol Dash (DASH) due to the latest US crackdown on digital assets.
“eToro has a framework in place which reviews the crypto assets we offer in light of the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape. Due to recent developments, we will be making some changes to our crypto offering for US customers.”
The decision by eToro coincides with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) suing Binance and Coinbase, the top two crypto exchanges in the world, for allegedly violating securities laws..."

Clintons... well that screams deep state criminals I'm in
Hillary Clinton announces 50 million dollar Global Climate Resilience Fund
Algorand Foundation Announces Broad-Reaching Partnerships in India to Grow Web3
"...In addition, Algorand will act as a technology partner for the new $50 million Global Climate Resilience Fund – launched by the Clinton Foundation and its Clinton Global Initiative, with SEWA as a founding partner – geared towards helping women micro-entrepreneurs address climate change. SEWA is the largest trade union in India with more than 2.1 million female workers. For 50 years, SEWA has improved the livelihoods of self-employed women workers from the informal economy through initiatives including technical training.
In celebrating the new fund, the Algorand Foundation and its CEO Staci Warden have joined Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and The Clinton Foundation in Ahmedabad. The fund, in part, will help local entrepreneurs connect with the carbon markets and monetize carbon credits that their activities generate. Through business accelerator programs and seed investments, Algorand will support women-led enterprises building solutions to increase financial inclusion and empowerment of SEWA members and low-income working women across India.
"At the Algorand Foundation, we are deeply committed to ensuring blockchain lives up to its potential in creating a more inclusive economy in India and across the globe," said Warden. "I am thrilled to be back in India, and especially to see the embrace and enthusiasm by people across the country for technology that can so significantly and positively impact their quality of life."
Algorand's focus on India follows the Foundation's recent appointment of Anil Kakani as India Country Head.
"The partnerships we are formalizing this week with India's most respected institutions and organizations are reflective of the reliability, scalability and real world utility of Algorand's blockchain technology," said Kakani. "Our mission is built around sustainable impact. We are ready to take center stage in India and across the globe to fuel world-changing solutions to improve access to financial services, health care, education and so many other critical applications."..."
