3-Verdict against messenger provider Telegram:
A New York court has now extended the ban on Telegram's Gram Token sale beyond the USA.
The messaging service provider had previously lodged an appeal against the injunction by the us stock exchange regulator SEC.
The SEC had already banned Telegram's Token sale within the USA.
The court has now granted the SEC's motion for an injunction.
AS a result of the ruling,the company is now also legally prohibited from selling the tokens to investors outside the USA who participed in the 2018 ICO.
4-Bitcoin ATMs also affected by Corona shutdown:
Bitcoin Depot operates around 600 Bitcoin ATMs in the USA,making it the largest Bitcoin ATM operator in the world.
In order to accommodate social distancing,the company has now closed some of the machines,approximately 10%.

After all,you have to manage the ATMs because of the quarantine,many people stay at home and therefore cannot avoid the Bitcoin ATMs.
Strictly speaking,contactless payment with cryptocurrencies would be correct right now in the times of Corona.
