The crypto market is finally showing signs of fresh life again, so we’re taking bigger steps to grow our Finimize crypto community this year. They’re already an active bunch: this is a short summary of interesting news events that went down in January – all as they were published in our crypto community Discord channel (which you can join here).

  • Amazon is getting in on the NFT game and looking to give customers the chance to play crypto games and snag free NFTs in the spring.

  • Coinbase’s chief product officer will leave the firm, with a $105 million payday.
  • BlockFi's bankruptcy filing is the real deal, but they're not gonna let a little thing like going bankrupt stop them from handing out bonuses like they're a tech startup that just got acquired by Google... but with only a fraction of the cash.

  • An NFT Whale had $2 million worth of tokens stolen in a phishing attack, proving that no one is safe in the digital world.
