Exclusives From ChangeNOW’s Head of PR Mike Ermolaev
Is Bitcoin Versus Gold Correlation Still Relevant in 2021?
In his latest op-ed for Dailyhodl.com Mike explains what Bitcoin and gold have in common and how this knowledge can be used to predict the future crypto market. He says:
“It used to be that gold and Bitcoin had a negative correlation or no relationship, but current trends indicate that the two assets are starting to move in common to some extent with regards to their perceived value as inflation hedges.”

Cointelegraph Exclusives For Brazilian and Spanish-speaking Communities
In November, Cointelegraph, one of the most widely known crypto media channels, started publishing the Spanish and Portuguese translations of Mike’s articles. Since then, our Head of PR has been sharing his insights with Cointelegraph every week.
In two of his most recent op-eds for Cointelegraph, Mike talks about gaming and metaverse-linked cryptocurrencies that might have the highest chance of shooting up in value this year. Read these articles in Portuguese and Spanish.
By the way, these exclusives have been so popular on Cointelegraph that even other prominent media sources, such as Businessinsider, have featured some of Mike's views.
Bitcoin Whales — Why They Matter And Who They Are?
ChangeNOW’s Head of PR has also addressed Bitcoin whales in his newest article for Benzinga.com. Mike explains what this phenomenon is and gives examples of some of the biggest BTC whales nowadays. He emphasizes their importance in the crypto market:
“Cryptocurrency whales, who own millions of dollars in Bitcoin, have the power to move markets solely on their own. They can cause a surge in volatility due to their concentration of wealth, sparking speculation among little fish, and making prices more reliant on it than on underlying fundamentals.”
The whole op-ed is available here.
Mike continued discussing BTC whales in his other article for Bitcoinmagazine.com, where he analyzed their possible connection to the latest crypto market changes.
Top Crypto Cashback Options Introduced in Fall 2021
Finally, Mike Ermolaev has reviewed what cashback features were rolled out by other crypto platforms in fall 2021 apart from ChangeNOW’s groundbreaking cashback release.
“As we can see, digital money is being brought to mainstream commerce with phenomenal speed. It is already possible to make profit in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, even by seemingly doing nothing. So, why not go for it?”

If you ever wondered what CBDCs are, Pauline has unraveled all you need to know about them in her article for Benzinga. She clarifies what exactly CBDCs are and compares them with cryptocurrencies. Then Pauline describes examples of CBDCs in different countries.
“As of today, central bank digital currencies are still mostly at the hypothetical proof-of-concept stage, although many countries are already developing their own CBDC projects.”

Crypto Skeptics Vs Fanatics: How To Compromise?
Pauline Shangett has teamed up with Benzinga to discuss the opposite opinions on cryptocurrencies: those of skeptics and those of crypto hardcore enthusiasts. She explains the two approaches in detail.
“We at ChangeNOW strongly believe that we are witnessing the advent of a new digital world that is already bringing many positive elements into people's lives, regardless of whether they are crypto enthusiasts or skeptics. And there's more to come.”

Governments’ Quest for Crypto Oversight: Regulation Updates in 2021 and What to Expect in 2022
Last year cryptocurrencies advanced towards becoming legally adopted in many countries around the world. Even though crypto regulation is still very vague, there has been some news. That’s what the next article of our CBDO is devoted to. She has wrapped up the most important updates concerning crypto regulation in 2021. Pauline discussed the news from different countries and made her predictions about the crypto laws in 2022.
“Currently, there is no centralized authority that regulates the digital asset class worldwide, and governments or regulators stick to their own policies. As crypto products come in a variety of forms, it’s hard for regulators to establish a unified framework. The taxation and income laws also vary across countries, which makes regulation more challenging.”
The article was published on Bravenewcoin.com.
Mass Adoption of Cryptocurrencies Among Large Institutions: Top 10 Cases
Last but not least, Pauline has reviewed 10 recent cases of crypto adoption among large institutions. The list of examples includes PayPal, JPMorgan, Tesla, Pornhub and more.
“As we can see, many of the world’s largest banks, as well as payment and entertainment services are trying to adapt to the use of digital currencies as best as they can. Even the most skeptical ones can’t deny the growing popularity of digital assets and dare to embrace the crypto space.”
The full op-ed is available on Hackernoon.com.
