Bored Apes and CryptoPunks help jolt NFT market to over 21,000% growth and $17.6 billion in sales last year

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) were the hottest topic of 2021, and a new report by industry tracker, NonFungible.com, shows how NFT traders turned that hype into major gains, stoking the market into $17.6 billion of total sales—a more than 200-fold increase over 2020. 

NFTs—unique digital assets such as audio clips, photos, GIFs, or other digital items, which are secured on the blockchain and can be bought and sold through online marketplaces like OpenSea—jumped into the mainstream in 2021.

The breakthrough moment for the nascent tech came after digital artist Beeple sold an NFT artwork at Christie’s last March for $69 million. Since then, tokens in top NFT collections, like CryptoPunks and Bored Ape Yacht Club, have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars a pop.

According to Thursday’s NonFungible.com report, which was created with support from L’Atelier BNP Paribas, the total value of all NFT transactions worldwide jumped 21,350% to more than $17 billion in 2021, from $82.5 million in 2020. The 200-fold increase in the NFT market was 100 times as great as the percentage increase in the electric-vehicle market over the same period, the report says.

The broad boom in the NFT market brought millions in profits to individual sellers. NFT traders earned over $5.4 billion in total profit through buying and selling NFTs, NonFungible.com says. Of the roughly 2 million active wallets engaged in buying NFTs over last year, 473 of them generated at least $1 million in profits.

Collectibles and gaming were two categories leading the surge in NFT transactions last year. The collectibles category alone generated more than $8.4 billion in sales. Among the NFTs in the collectibles group are some of the most popular NFT projects, including Bored Ape Yacht Club, which counts among its owners celebrities such as pop star Justin Bieber and late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

Although last year’s increase in the NFT market was its biggest ever, the technology is still fairly new, and has benefited from publicity. Dan Kelly, CEO and cofounder of NonFungible.com, said in a statement that in 2022, the market is likely to decline overall as it matures.

Four Points by Sheraton Uses CAYIN Technology’s Digital Signage to Elevate Guest Experience Journey

Four Points by Sheraton, a modern hotel located in the heart of Desaru town, Malaysia, is a part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extraordinary 30 hotel portfolio.

The 311-room hotel offers a tranquil retreat to travelers visiting Desaru for business or leisure. While the hotel’s approachable design caters to the needs of the modern-day traveler, Four Points by Sheraton aimed to create a further enhanced experience for their guests with the aid of CAYIN Technology. For the new hotel opening in 2021, Four Points by Sheraton aimed to achieve three main objectives. The first was to elevate the guest experience with compelling visualization, the second to provide guests access to relevant information, and the third to create brand consistency.

Hospitality Digital Signage at Four Points by Sheraton, Desaru

Immersive Visualization Captures Hotel Essence

CAYIN digital signage was chosen as the ideal solution and was installed safely despite the pandemic. A total of one CMS-SE, one CMS-PRO, and ten SMP-2300 have been installed around high traffic flow areas such as function venue entrances and common areas like the hotel lobby. The digital signage in the hotel lobby and common areas include welcome texts, promotional slides with the latest offers, and attractive corporate videos that serve to enhance brand awareness. Hotel guests receive a consistent brand experience upon setting foot in the hotel and throughout their stay.

Instant Event Information Broadcast and Easy Management

The digital signage installed at function venue entrances showcases event information to keep hotel guests in the know. Wall-to-wall access to event details makes it easy for hotel guests to plan their stay accordingly. In addition, the digital signage’s calendar-based scheduling features allow the hotel management team to broadcast accurate real-time content. The management team can remotely monitor and control players, logs, and detailed information through the CMS-PRO server.

Advanced Software and Equipment

CMS-SE and CMS-PRO, installed in CMS-60, function as content management server software. CMS-SE updates contents to the ten SMP-2300 digital signage players simultaneously around the hotel; CMS-PRO synchronizes configurations across multiple SMP players all at once and monitors current screenshots of SMP players, making management an intuitive process for the hotel.

Special Accreditation to Hola Media

Hola Media Sdn Bhd, located and provides professional services in Malaysia, is specialized in digital signage consultation, system integration, business and mobile application development. CAYIN is honoured to partner with Hola Media as a solution provider in this project. Hola Media, equipped with sufficient knowledge and experience in digital signage, executed the planning, design, installation, testing and commissioning, training and maintenance and support of this project in a timely and professional manner.

Overall Enhancement of Guest Experience

The digital signage implementation successfully elevates the overall guest experience with compelling visualization and accessible information. The central managed digital signage platform also streamlines services and boosts bottom lines for the business. Four Points by Sheraton has commended CAYIN’s digital signage solution for its intuitive management system, making cross-departmental collaboration in the hotel possible and efficient.

Global Textile Printing Markets Report 2022-2026 – Asia-Pacific Spearheads Growth in Digital Textile Printing Market

Global Textile Printing Market to Reach 28.2 Billion Square Meters by 2026

The global market for Textile Printing estimated at 22 Billion Square Meters in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of 28.2 Billion Square Meters by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 4.3% over the period analysis period. Screen Printing, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 2.8% CAGR to reach 24.6 Billion Square Meters by the end of the analysis period.

Driven by rising disposable incomes, consumers especially in fast-growing developing economies are gaining the ability to afford fabrics with attractive designs and designer wear. Market growth is also being favored by the rising preference for artistic fabrics among customers. Sustainability, shorter run lengths, online collaboration, demand for textiles with vibrant colors, and changes in printing partner ecosystem are some of the trends that are likely to emerge post COVID-19 crisis.

Renewed emphasis on eco-friendly procedures and toxic-free ingredients would emerge as a major trend in the textile printing ecosystem. The new sustainability awareness can potentially trigger the switch from traditional textile printing to digital textile printing, as digital approach is more sustainable and more viable in the long-run. Besides digital printing, shorter run lengths also influence the demand for high quality rotary screens, which still represent the most economical textile printing method.

 After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Digital Printing segment is readjusted to a revised 16.5% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 7.8% share of the global Textile Printing market.

The market for traditional textile screen printing, which is a labor-intensive technique, has witnessed growth led by steady population growth, rising consumer spending of people across the world, and rapidly changing fashion trends. However, with the emergence of digital textile printing and its fast adoption in the global market, the conventional screen printing method is facing stiff competition.

Growth in Digital Printing segment will be driven by digital printing technology`s ability to address technical limitations that are encountered in conventional printing applications, and its use in small-volume productions involving varied designs, which proves to be inefficient in the case of traditional printing.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at 1.5 Billion Square Meters in 2021, While China is to Reach 8.5 Billion Square Meters by 2026

The Textile Printing market in the U.S. is estimated at 1.5 Billion Square Meters in the year 2021. The country currently accounts for a 6.62% share in the global market. China, the world`s second largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of 8.5 Billion Square Meters in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 5.2% through the analysis period.

Among the other noteworthy geographic markets are Japan and Canada, each forecast to grow at 1.8% and 2.3% respectively over the analysis period. Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 4.3% CAGR while Rest of European market (as defined in the study) will reach 9 Billion Square Meters by the end of the analysis period.

During the COVID-19 crisis period, several European companies have relocated their contracts from China, Pakistan and other eastern regions to locations closer to or within Europe such as Morocco, Turkey, Spain and Portugal. The trend is expected to continue in the post crisis period and the US companies are also likely to follow the same path and prefer non-Chinese partners, especially those based out of Mexico, Japan or Europe due to ongoing trade war and uncertain tariff scenario.

Efforts to promote eco-friendly techniques for textile printing in developing economies, especially in China and India, are driving digital textile printing in these economies.

Ripple Sues Youtube For Allowing Spread of Cryptocurrency ‘Giveaway’ Scams

Blockchain firm Ripple sued Alphabet Inc’s YouTube on Tuesday, alleging the video-sharing platform failed to protect consumers from cryptocurrency “giveaway” scams that use fake social media profiles to dupe victims into sending money. The company says scammers on YouTube have been impersonating Ripple and its CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, to bait viewers into sending thousands of dollars worth of XRP, a cryptocurrency championed by Ripple, according to a court filing.

The scammers promise to send back up to 5 million XRP, worth nearly $1 million, but victims who participate in the fake “giveaways” never receive any money in return, said the filing. The lawsuit appears poised to raise a fresh challenge around the controversial Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which shields Google, Facebook and other internet companies from liability for material that users post on their platforms.

Regulators in Washington are reconsidering the need for the law’s broad immunity, which helped U.S. tech companies grow but is viewed increasingly as a shelter enabling some of the world’s richest companies to avoid investments to curb crime, extremism and misinformation online. “For every scam, giveaway, a fake conspiracy that is taken down, multiple more pop up nearly immediately,” Ripple said in a blog post. “YouTube and other big technology and social media platforms must be held accountable for not implementing sufficient processes for fighting these scams.”

Garlinghouse, a long-time Silicon Valley executive, said he wants the case to be a “call to action” for the social media industry, arguing the law was written, “at a time when we didn’t understand how these platforms could be abused.” He said he had seen similar impersonations on platforms including Facebook’s photo-sharing app Instagram, but targeted YouTube in the lawsuit because it was the “slowest to respond and least proactive.”

YouTube spokesman Alex Joseph said the company takes abuse of the platform seriously and acts “quickly when we detect violations of our policies, such as scams or impersonation.” Founded in 2012, Ripple is one of the best-known companies that develop so-called blockchain technology, or the system underpinning cryptocurrencies. The company develops blockchain systems to help financial services firms carry out cross-border payments using XRP. Its filing, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, says YouTube’s failure to address the “pervasive and injurious fraud” has harmed the reputation of both Ripple and Garlinghouse.

Ripple said millions of people have viewed the scams on YouTube, which enabled the fraud to proliferate by ignoring its demands for the videos to be taken down and continuing to sell ads to the scammers. YouTube also awarded a “verification badge” to a hacked channel displaying a photo of Garlinghouse as its profile picture, falsely indicating to viewers that the account was legitimate, the filing said.

Alongwith Bitcoin, Ethereum too was largely unaffected due to the recent interest rate hike by the Feds

SWASTIKA DAS SHARMA

Cryptocurrency Update: The global cryptocurrency market on Thursday, March 17, rose slightly as major crypto coins gained their value. The cryptocurrency market cap today was standing at $1.82 trillion, according to data from global crypto tracking website CoinMarketCap. This was up by 1.61 per cent over the last 24 hours. The The global crypto volume also rose over the past day. The total volume of traded coins amounted to $94.32 billion over the course of the last day. This has jumped by 1.06 per cent over the last 24 hours.

“The US Federal Reserve raised interest rates for the first time since 2018, from 0.25 percent to 0.5 percent to combat the surging inflation rate. In most cases, the rise of interest rates tends to signal uncertainty for the crypto market as investors have greater access to yield from low-risk avenues of the market,” said the CoinDCX Research Team on the crypto market movement.

“Yet, in contrast, the past 24 hours have witnessed the crypto market responding atypically, trending further upwards to continue its bullish trend in the greens,” it said.

This could be a case of a lag in market reaction and investors may only begin to witness its true impact on crypto down the line, it added.

Govt May Bring Cryptocurrency Under GST: Know What it Means For Investors

Cryptocurrency Under GST: The government is working to bring cryptocurrencies under the ambit of Goods & Services Tax (GST) in order to tax the entire value of transactions. Currently, cryptocurrency exchanges are taxed at 18 per cent slab of GST on services provided to users under the financial services category.

GST officers are of the view that cryptos, by nature, are similar to lottery, casinos, betting, gambling, horse racing, which have 28 per cent of GST on the entire value. Besides, GST at 3 per cent is levied on the entire transaction value in the case of gold.

“There is a clarity needed regarding levy of GST on cryptocurrencies, and whether it has to be levied on the entire value, We are seeing whether cryptocurrencies can be classified as goods or services and also removing any doubt on whether it can be called an actionable claim,” an official told PTI. Only after the classification is done will the GST rate on cryptocurrencies be decided.

f GST is levied on the entire value of cryptocurrency transactions, the rate may be in the ballpark of 0.1 to 1 per cent, another official said. “The percentage of tax, whether it would be 0.1 per cent or one percent, is still being debated. First, a decision on the classification of the asset has be made, and then the tariff would be discussed,” yet another official said.

Because there is no clear definition of cryptocurrency in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) law, and because there is no law governing such virtual digital currencies, the categorization must consider whether the legal framework qualifies it as an actionable claim. An actionable claim is one that a creditor can make for any sort of debt that is not secured by a mortgage of immovable property.

Loss in One Crypto Asset Can’t Be Set Off Against Another

In the Union Budget 2022-23, the government has proposed that transfer of any virtual/cryptocurrency asset will be taxed at 30 per cent. No deduction except cost of acquisition will be allowed and no loss in transaction will be allowed to be carried forward.

Today, in a big jolt for the crypto industry, the government on Monday clarified that as per the Budget 2022 proposals investors will not be allowed to set-off losses in one crypto asset against another. Further, mining infrastructure will not be eligible to be deducted as the cost of acquisition.

Along with the 30 per cent tax, the Union Budget 2022-23 has also proposed a 1% TDS on the transfer of such assets. Tax experts were split on whether investors could set off losses in one crypto against another crypto asset. Set-off of losses means adjusting the losses against the profit or income of that particular year. This provision is available in stock investments.

Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Chaudhary informed Lok Sabha on Monday, “As per provisions of the proposed section 115BBH to the Income-tax Act, 1961 (the Act), loss from the transfer of VDA will not be allowed to be set off against the income arising from transfer of another VDA.”
