PayPal is going to roll out crypto services to UK customers this week, allowing users to buy but not transfer out crypto from PayPal.

NFT frenzy continues as the latest EtherRock to make new records sold for $600k, literally a cartoon drawing of a grey rock; the cheapest rock available now for sale starts at $1M.

Domain squatters are now moving into NFT, with examples such as the apparently reputable domain ‘investors’, ‘Booth brothers’, buying Bored Ape NFTs for $1.3M. Otherwise, a slow news cycle day.
