Biden to attend Bitcoin roundtable

Odaily Planet Daily reported that Biden will attend a Bitcoin roundtable with key congressional officials in Washington, DC. The proposed meeting, led by U.S. Congressman Ro Khanna, will discuss how to keep Bitcoin and blockchain innovation within the United States.
U.S. Congressman Ro Khanna will host a Bitcoin and Blockchain Roundtable in Washington, D.C. in early July, describing it as “the most important meeting between blockchain policymakers and innovation leaders to date.” The roundtable is expected to feature officials from the Biden administration, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, as well as American businessman Mark Cuban. The main goal of the meeting is to strategize on how to keep “Bitcoin and blockchain innovation in the United States.”
The move is seen as a response to former President Donald Trumps recent endorsement of the Bitcoin industry. Over the past four years, the Biden administration has taken a hostile stance toward Bitcoin and the crypto industry. The upcoming roundtable marks a shift in Washingtons attitude toward the crypto industry, and given Khannas partisanship, it may represent a warming of sentiment among Democrats. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Biden administration was in talks to accept cryptocurrency donations through Coinbase Commerce, after Trump also began accepting donations through Coinbase.

Tether CEO: More than 300 million people use USDT worldwide, and Tether is the main buyer of U.S. Treasury bonds

Odaily Planet Daily News: Paolo Ardoino, CEO of Tether, recently emphasized the important role of USDT in driving demand for the U.S. dollar in emerging markets. Ardoino revealed that more than 300 million people around the world use USDT as a digital dollar to provide basic financial services to communities in developing countries. This stablecoin improves the efficiency of fund transfer and storage, bypassing the traditional financial system that often excludes people with underbanked services. This means that if Tethers USDT usage scale is equivalent to a country, its economic scale will exceed that of countries like Indonesia, Pakistan, and Nigeria. Therefore, the high acceptance of USDT has a significant impact on the global financial system.
Ardoino noted that Tether is one of the top three buyers of short-term U.S. Treasuries globally, and is also among the top 20 buyers overall. This reflects Tether’s growing influence in the financial sector and the increasing integration of virtual assets with the traditional financial system. Ardoino’s comments were in response to an article that stated that dollar-backed stablecoins fueled demand for U.S. public debt.

Trusta CTO: The multiplier rules in ZKsync and LayerZero airdrops will exacerbate the polarization of airdrops and have potential room for maneuver

Odaily Planet Daily News Trusta CTO Simon wrote on the X platform that the multiplier rules in the ZKsync and LayerZero airdrop distribution design will aggravate the polarization of airdrops and have potential room for maneuver.
It pointed out that in fact, in airdrops such as Optimism, Arbitrum, Celestia and Starknet, the project parties did not design airdrop rules based on multipliers, but in the Wormwhole airdrop in April this year, the project parties have systematically used several multiplier rules, but it did not trigger community discussion.
However, the multiplier rules used in the ZKsync airdrop design and the airdrop multiplier rules announced in advance by LayerZero to the market reflect strong subjectivity and user polarization. Simon said that although he fully understands the projects emphasis on certain types of transactions, assets, and wallets, it is still worth discussing whether the airdrop design uses multiplication or addition rules.
