The market still is what it is, and we can't change it. But changing our perspective is always only just one thought away!

News From the World
Before we say goodbye, as always we want to share some snapshots of what is happening around us:
Swarm is introducing on-chain Apple and Tesla shares, in a push for the tokenization of Real world Assets (RWA’s). Co-founder Tim Lehes stated that while Swarm is starting with stocks and bonds, they will soon extent this to “any asset that needs to be traded on a regulated platform, from carbon credits, to real estate or private holdings”.
After many discussions around bringing RWA’s onto the blockchain took place in 2022, among which Vitalik contributed that it was one of the most interesting developments in crypto, it seems that many doors will be opening around the topic this year. Maker also took a big leap ahead in the charge with their exposure to RWA’s increasing from US$17M to US$640M, and Coinbase stated it is a trend to look out for in 2023.
The Digital Pound, or “Britcoin” will likely become a reality as a consultation paper has been released prior to plans for a CBDC in the UK. The Bank of England (BoE) may wait to consider the impact of other CBDC’s, such as China’s digital Yuan on both economies before making final decisions, however it seem the Treasury and BoE look to ready a CBDC.
