03 May: Algorand Partners with FIFA!

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change world.”
-Nelson Mandela


Happy Tuesday Folks! Nothing super exciting about the news cycle this morning. Algorand is up on the news it has partnered with FIFA and Cardano whales are hungry, gobbling up over 190 Million $ADA since last month. However, Hunter Merghart joining Millennium to plot firm's crypto strategy could be big news if they get off zero in a big way. Angel Studios disclosed that they sold shares for Bitcoin, Ripple case could be solved by end of year, and Crypto mortgages could pose risk if market declines. Make time to watch the Altcoin Daily and Data Dash videos, listen to the podcast because there is a lot of good stuff in them!
