Celebrating International Women’s Day
Happy International Women’s Day To All The Amazing Women Of The World!!
International Women’s Day is a moment when we come together to celebrate the achievements of women across the world. Each year on March 8th, the globe joins in to commemorate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of all women.
The theme for this year’s event was #BreakTheBias and our partners at Sequence (responsible for the #NFT collection at Launchpool Labs), came together to create their very own female-inspired NFT collection titled: #WildcardWomen; which celebrates women worldwide.
The Female AF Collective was launched on – International Women’s Day. This inaugural 49-piece drop, consists of seven individual artworks each comprising of seven NFTs.
Wildcard Women will celebrate seven female icons that have each been chosen as an inspiration by a different female member of the Sequence Team.

PolyGONE Again, Andre Cronje Retires, and FCA Axes Crypto ATMs
😱 PolyGONE Again 😱
The Ethereum sidechain Polygon has experienced another outage following a scheduled update. The outage lasted for a total of 8 to 11 hours with a complete freeze of all transactions (gladly no funds were lost).
Earlier in January Polygon experienced an unintentional DDOS from a sunflower-based game which hampered the network.
Hopefully, the problems will be solved in the future for this promising, scaling solution.
😵 Andre Cronje Retires 🤭
The legendary DeFi coder Andre Cronje has announced that he's leaving crypto and DeFi to pursue “other” goals. Andre, along with his partner Anton Nell, is handing off development of 25 different projects to other developers. 😢
Cronje is most known for Yearn, Multichain, Fantom, the concept of a "Fair Launch" and most recently Solidly 🤧
We wish both him and Anton the best in their future endeavours 😇
🏧 FCA Axes Crypto ATMs ❌
The FCA, the U.K. financial watchdog, has issued a termination order for all Bitcoin ATMs that are unregistered with them.
Data by Coin ATM Radar, indicates that there are 81 Bitcoin ATMs within the U.K., operated by eight companies, all of which might be targeted by this new mandate. How this plays out in practice and how this effects the wider UK crypto space is up for debate, but it is certainly one area to watch.
