Bitcoin and major altcoins, including Ethereum and Binance Coin (BNB), are still struggling to recoup from the dip. On a seven-day count, Bitcoin and Ethereum are down 10.93% and 18.80%, respectively. Overall, the crypto market is down by more than three percent since the last 24 hours, having a combined market capitalization of $1.32 trillion.
Meanwhile, let’s look at some interesting crypto news for today.
Earlier today, the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, tweeted about “The B Word,” which is an organization aimed at promoting the adoption of Bitcoin. In response to the tweet, Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO, trolled Dorsey with a comment reading “Bicurious?”
Following Musk’s response, Dorsey requested they should talk about Bitcoin at the upcoming “B Word” conference. Musk agreed to a dialogue with Dorsey. It remains unknown whether or not he will attend the conference, which is scheduled to be held next month.
This is coming some weeks after Musk criticized Bitcoin and its intensive energy usage.
For the Bitcurious? Very well then, let’s do it 😉

DAO Maker successfully conducted another quarterly token burn today. In accordance with the report, about 31.2 million DAO worth $70 million was burned.
These tokens will not return to circulation again. A token burn is a deflationary approach to keeping coins/tokens relevant and valuable over time. This is in favor of the token holders because it causes scarcity of the token.
