CageChain Newsletter #155 | Tom Brady NFTs, Hayes Turns Himself In, Atari Ready for Blockchain, Miami Geared to Offer Services on Ethereum and More...

Looks like Tom Brady is getting off the bench and hopping in the NFT game after a successful release from former teammate Rob Gronkowski. Former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes surrendered to U.S. authorities in Hawaii on Tuesday, six months after federal prosecutors first levied charges against him and three fellow BitMEX executives. In a statement, Hayes' lawyers described the Singapore resident as "a self-made entrepreneur who has been wrongly accused of crimes that he did not commit," adding: "Mr. Hayes voluntarily appeared in court and looks forward to fighting these unwarranted charges." Video game pioneer Atari announced on Tuesday the creation of a blockchain division that will seize on the technology to develop games and a cryptocurrency that players could spend on items. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez turned heads earlier this year when he said he wanted the Florida city to add Bitcoin to its treasury. Now, Suarez is pushing a commitment for the city to explore crypto by turning his attention to Ethereum. According to a new episode of The Scoop, Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin and Suarez announced that they have embarked on a new collaborative project focused on city services. To be sure, it's early days for the initiative, but the two have met on two occasions now and talks about the scope of the initiative continue. "We're trying to come up with a project that goes through the foundation and directly with Ethereum that we can do with the city," said Suarez. "We want the city directly involved in a way that demonstrates the applicability of the software so that we can continue to provide better services for our residents."
