Bitcoin Daily: NCR, NYDIG To Allow Bitcoin Buys; World Wide Web Source Code Sold As NFT For $5.4M –


A deal between payments company NCR and NYDIG, a digital assets firm, will benefit 650 companies looking at offering bitcoin purchases, a Forbes report says.

The deal will see community banks including First Citizens Bank from North Carolina, along with credit unions like Bay Federal Credit Union out of California, able to work with crypto via NCR’s mobile apps.

NCR wants to capitalize on the demand from places like banks and credit unions, which are tired of outside exchanges handling crypto payments from their accounts.

Travel booking platform GetYourGuide is expanding to the U.S. and plans to accept dogecoin as a form of payment, a press release says.

GetYourGuide, the release says, wants people to start using Dogecoin on “real experiences.”

“The challenges many faced over the past year sent people into a virtual spiral – Netflix bingeing, increased social app use, and a renewed interest in stock and cryptocurrency trading, such as Dogecoin,” said Johannes Reck, cofounder & CEO at GetYourGuide. “Why waste time worrying about hourly fluctuations in Doge when we can invest in making memories by experiencing the best of the real world?”

Mike Novogratz, the crypto billionaire behind Galaxy Interactive, is leading the charge on investments for the virtual real estate developer Republic Realm, Reuters reports.

Republic Realm buys virtual real estate, which means a crypto asset or nonfungible token (NFT) which has ownership status and authenticity verified by blockchain.

Republic Realm recently started working in totally online virtual world Decentraland, which allows people to put their virtual collections on display including NFT art collections. They can open art shops and “walk around” inside the virtual world.

A nonfungible token (NFT) with the world wide web source code has sold for $5.4 million, U.S. News wrote.

The code in question was written by its inventor, Tim Berners-Lee. The report says that while the world wide web itself has not been sold, Berners-Lee’s blockchain-based record of ownership, with files of the original source code, has been.
