Recently, there have been valuable developments for the big three altcoins. A valuable attack on Web3 took place in Japan when MakerDAO was subsidiary with Coinbase. Here are the details…
Popular altcoin project MakerDAO and Coinbase partner
America’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Coinbase, has entered a subsidiary with decentralized finance lending protocol MakerDAO, largely to store USDC. On October 24, Coinbase announced that the MakerDAO administration had accepted an offer to hold $1.6 billion in Coinbase Prime. This means that Coinbase has expanded its USDC rewards program to an institutional client for the first time. MakerDAO will keep the funds with the firm’s institutional committee, Coinbase Prime, while reaping 1.5 percent benefit from them.
The proposal was approved on October 24 with 75 percent of the vote, or 109,944 MKR tokens. Coinbase is confident that stablecoins will be an integral module of future finance. USD Coin has increased its market share over the past few years, approaching industry-leading Tether (USDT). MakerDAO is now the largest holder of USDC. Jennifer Senhaji, from growth and business development at MakerDAO, said the additional monthly revenue generated through this consensus “enables Maker to further its overarching mission of creating a global, secure financial future on decentralized rails.” At the time of writing, MKR is changing hands at $923, down 2.5 percent.

Nesten and IoTeX collaborate
Nesten, a California-based community-focused wireless network provider, has decided to move from its layer 1 Ethereum-based Blockchain to the more scalable, faithful and EVM-compliant multi-chain of IoTeX. The two enterprises have joined forces to create the large, scalable and reliable Web3 network. Nesten announced that this move will help them successfully challenge their competitors, specifically Helium (HNT), and become the world’s leading provider of Web3 wireless networks.
CEO and Founder Dr. The Nesten group, led by Andrew Baek, said it analyzed several layer-1 Blockchans. But he stated that they decided to develop IoTeX because of its unique tools and middleware that connects real-world devices to Web3 quickly and inexpensively. IoTeX (IOTX) is at $0.026, up 2 percent at the time of writing.
