eToro to limit Cardano and Tron trading in the U.S

eToro has announced it is planning to limit users in the U.S. from opening new positions in Cardano (ADA) and Tron (TRX) starting later this year.

The Israeli exchange cited regulatory concerns were to blame for the two cryptocurrencies being delisted. From December 26th, US-based users will no longer be able to buy both ADA and TRX.

"The regulatory landscape for crypto is evolving rapidly," an eToro spokesperson told Markets Insider. "As a result, we will be limiting the ability for U.S. users to open new positions in, or earn staking rewards for, ADA and TRX."

However, U.S users will be able to still hold existing positions of ADA and TRX, which can be closed at any time. The exchange has reassured users that it has no plans to force them to sell their positions.

Collins Dictionary picks NFT as 2021’s word of the year

Last year there was a good chance you didn’t know what an NFT was, but since the start of 2021, NFT’s have skyrocketed in popularity.

Collins Dictionary defines NFT, which is short for non-fungible token, as “a unique digital certificate, registered in a blockchain, that is used to record ownership of an asset such as an artwork or a collectible."

The word in second place was “cheugy,” followed by “climate anxiety” in third place. From fourth to tenth, Collins chose “crypto,” “double-vaxxed,” “hybrid working,” “metaverse,” “neopronoun,” “pingdemic,” and last of all, “regencycore.”

Over the past year, Collins has revealed the abbreviation has had an 11,000% rise in usage. NFT was chosen because it is a “unique technicolor collision of art, technology, and commerce… that has broken through the Covid noise.”

Hustle Special

Start feeling more valuable

When starting out in anything, especially starting a business, it can be hard to have confidence. It’s crucial you build confidence for your mental health and overall success.

Feeling unworthy will likely hold you back from succeeding. When you don’t perceive yourself as worthy, you will likely self-sabotage without even noticing and avoid living up to your potential.

One way you can build self-esteem is by knowing your strengths and weakness. Identify what weaknesses are holding you back from achieving your goals and work to improve them.

Always make sure to celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small they are. Recognize every step you successfully make towards your goals, and never forget how much farther you can go.

Mozilla is ending support for its password manager app

Mozilla has recently announced that it will be ending its support for its Firefox Lockwise app on December 13th.

Firefox Lockwise is Mozilla's password manager app which started as a small experimental mobile app called Lockbox back in 2018. The mobile app allowed access for users to save passwords and perform autofills on iOS, Androids, and desktop devices. It was later adapted as an extension for the Firefox browser.

Once Firefox Lockwise is down in December, Mozilla has recommended its users to continue accessing passwords by using Firefox browsers on either the desktop or mobile.

Mozilla has also explained in a recent support article that users of the iOS app will have the ability to manage their Firefox passwords systemwide. The company may also adopt the feature and implement them into the Firefox browser apps on all platforms.

Own and secure your crypto
