Lydia introduces stock and crypto trading to its payment app

French peer-to-peer payment app, Lydia, has announced that it will allow it to introduce stock and crypto trading.


The company has partnered with crypto exchange Bitpanda to introduce the new features, which will allow users to buy, hold and sell over 170 digital assets, including cryptocurrencies, commission-free fractional stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETF) and precious metals.


“Six months ago, we set out with the audacious goal of entering the B2B market by opening up Bitpanda’s digital finance infrastructure to third parties. Now the time has come and we are pleased to announce that we’ve joined forces with the mobile financial services platform Lydia, a real superstar in France,” Bitpanda wrote in its blog post.


Once the trading features launch, Lydia users can start investing in digital assets for as little as €1. A “White Label Solution” integration will allow Lydia accounts to have access to all the assets that are available on the exchange, and the fees will stay the same as all transactions will be through Bitpanda.

Kojima Productions launches new film, TV, and Music division

The game production studio behind Death Stranding has recently announced that they are launching a brand new business division that is focusing on film, television, and music. The company is opening up an office based in Los Angeles for their new division.


Kojima's new division is tasked with working alongside creatives and talented professionals within the television, music, and film space to develop and expand the reach of the properties under Kojima Productions. Gamesindustry.biz has reported that the new division will be led by Riley Russell, a multimedia professional who worked for PlayStation for 28 years.


Kojima's new multimedia division will now take the studio into more areas in which they are able to communicate and present their creative narratives beyond just video games, but now in music, film, and television.


As of right now, there are no projects currently being developed by the new multimedia division. Kojima production's entering the film and television industry does not come as a surprise since it's no secret that Kojima Production founder, Hideo Kojima is a big fan of films.


Kojima's love for films can be seen in his games such as Death Stranding which features actors Norman Reedus and Léa Seydoux as well as his previous partnership with well-known director Guillermo del Toro on a cancelled Silent Hill game that they were developing.

Twitter partners with Walmart to test new livestream shopping platform

After testing shopping features for businesses earlier this year, Twitter is now testing a new live shopping experience.


The feature will allow users to watch a broadcast while shopping on Walmart's site. Walmart’s Cyber Week-themed livestream with Jason Derulo will be the first live shopping stream on November 28th at 7 PM ET.


“Livestreaming on Twitter gives businesses the power to engage with their most influential fans, and adding the ability to shop into this experience is a natural extension to attracting and engaging with receptive audiences,” Twitter explained.


Twitter has also started testing a “Shopping Manager,” which will help with the merchant onboarding experience, along with expanding the availability of the “Shop Module,” a tool that allows brands and businesses to add a carousel to their profile that can highlight a selection of products.

Own and secure your crypto

If you’re into cryptocurrency and own crypto assets, you need a secure place to store your coins and tokens. You probably already know that you shouldn’t store your crypto on an exchange due to potential hacks, not being solely in control of your crypto’s private keys, and for other reasons, and so a hardware wallet is the way to go and the best option to protect your private keys, therefore, you should make the move to a Ledger wallet.

Ledger wallets are an extremely secure and premium way to secure, manage, and grow your crypto assets with their Bluetooth-enabled hardware wallets, and easy-to-use app which lets you manage your portfolio on the go. They let you manage multiple assets, buy, sell, grow, and exchange crypto, gain financial freedom by you being in full control and ownership of your private keys, and so much more.

The wallets are really simple to setup, and to move your crypto over to, so there’s no reason not to secure your assets and take control of your cryptocurrency now and get yourself a Ledger device. You can manage 1800+ coins and tokens directly in the Ledger Live app once you’ve got your device up and running, so you’ll always have your entire portfolio covered.
