Brazilian financial exchange operator B3 has accredited UK brokerage Infinox Capital to provide liquidity and to act as the sole market maker for FX futures trading contracts.
As a market maker on the world’s third largest derivatives exchange, Infinox Capital now enables Brazilian investors to trade the world’s FX and interest rate products in their home market, and without needing to send funds out of the country. The company already offers simultaneous bid and offer prices in selected securities listed on the exchange as part of its market-making services.
The latest agreement intends to further strengthen liquidity, pricing, and market depth offered to the bourse’s investors, who count over 1.5 million active accounts.
“Demand from retail investors in Brazil is booming, having grown 60-fold in the past three years. Infinox will spend the next few months measuring demand from institutional investors, banks and brokers for futures contracts,” the company said.

Fomo Lab Partners with PVLACE of 808 MAFIA and Gunboi to drop ‘For the Culture’ Collection
[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]
London, United Kingdom, 17th May 2021 – Fomo Lab partners with PVLACE of 808 MAFIA and GUNBOI to drop their “FOR THE CULTURE” collection on Fomo Lab’s own NFT platform, The Avenue. This collection will contain 387 intrinsically rare collectibles of music in the form of “mystery boxes”, by PVLACE and GUNBOI, multi-platinum, billboard chart topping, industry-leading producers who have made music for some of the biggest names in hip-hop history, including; Wiz Khalifa, Migos, Future, and many more. The “For The Culture” collection will be launched on The Avenue from the 31st of May.
The landscape of entertainment media is evolving, and the PVLACE’s NFT team are the first to ever integrate hip-hop culture with crypto culture in a gamified fashion by including 3D avatar characters each paired to 1 of 1 production composed by top industry producers. They have produced music for the biggest names in the music industry, including Young Thug, whose most recent album, Slime Language 2, debuted at number one on the “Billboard Albums Hot 100”, and are now working closely with Fomo Lab to release their collection making it accessible to more audiences.
The “For The Culture” collection is set to include 387 unique NFT’s varying from exclusive items to exclusive avatars, all of which will include exclusive music and instrumental compositions. The essence of this collection is that the producers are selling the full rights to the music through NFTs, as the most seamless way to transfer rights. The music on each NFT will range between two to five minutes long, along with one-of-a-kind avatars of celebrities, and of items.
Tchakalla Romeo (aka Gunboi), the music producer, said “Every collectible is an homage to how we felt when we were younger and Fomo Lab understands and believes in that, too. This culture is meant to be a comprehensive examination of hip-hop in all forms.”
The CEO and co-founder of Fomo Lab, Pixasso stated, “We are very excited for this collection to launch, as it also really resonates with all of us at Fomo Lab being hip-hop fans ourselves. The fans will love it too, it is also a seamless way to change ownership to be more in line with the content creators vision. We have a lot of really cool NFTs coming to The Avenue, but we’re thrilled this is our first one.”
Each NFT will be sold at an even price of 2 BNB (no more than $1,400 USD), where in the traditional music industry market it would sell for over $20,000 USD. This is because they believe that hip-hop was always “for the people”, in line with their vision, their goal is to make these memorabilia accessible to everyone, while expanding the ecosystem. The music in each NFT is made by the same creators who produced music for top major label artists such as Future, Migos, Chris Brown, Young Thug, Lil Baby, Juice WRLD, and Wiz Khalifa, among many others, ensuring the worth of these NFTs to be extremely valuable.

Ethereum Co-Founder Vitalik Buterin Burns $6.7 Billion in Shiba Inu (SHIB) Tokens
Vitalik Buterin, who was gifted half of Shiba Inu’s total supply, has burned 90% of his holdings worth nearly $7 billion. The Ethereum co-founder further said he would allocate the remaining 10% to charitable organizations while also praising the “dog token community” for its generosity.
Buterin Burns $6.7B in Shiba Inu
The Dogecoin rise to the top led to the creation of numerous copycats that garnered significant attention in the past several weeks. Perhaps none became more popular than the self-described DOGE-killer – Shiba Inu.
One of the compelling features came from the anonymous developers who decided to send half of the total supply to Vitalik Buterin – the co-founder of Ethereum. The other half remains locked for liquidity on Uniswap.
Buterin, who donated 50 trillion SHIB tokens (and other dog-related digital assets) to India Covid Relief Fund last week, has decided to burn the majority of his Shiba Inu holdings now.
“I have decided to burn 90% of the remaining Shiba tokens in my wallet. The remaining 10% will be sent to a (not yet decided) charity with similar values to CryptoRelief (preventing large-scale loss of life) but with a more long-term orientation.” – he explained in the transaction hash.
Buterin outlined the severe problem COVID-19 has created for the entire world and added, “it’s important to think about the longer term future too.”
Upon the time of the transaction, the 410,24 trillion SHIB tokens Buterin sent from his wallet had a value of about $6.74 billion.
The booming popularity of SHIB caused a massive price surge in the past few weeks. It culminated in an all-time high at nearly $0.00004 after a listing on the world’s leading crypto exchange – Binance.
The Generosity of Dog People
Ethereum’s co-founder touched upon his aforementioned decision to donate a substantial amount of his dog tokens to charity organizations.
“Plenty of dog people have shown their generosity and their willingness to not just focus on their own profits but also be interested in making the world as a whole better.”
However, he also attracted some heat following his actions as some angry developers created coins with offensive names. As such, he urged the community to refrain from sending him new tokens without his consent in the future.
“I don’t want to be a locus of power of that kind. Better to just print the coins into the hands of a worthy charity directly (though do talk to them first.)”
Litecoin Price Analysis: 17 May
The Bitcoin price faced strong volatility due to which the price has once again crumbled under $50k. This strong volatility has spread to the altcoin market and the digital silver, Litecoin [LTC], was among those alts affected. The Litecoin price slipped by 21% over the weekend and was trading at $286 with a market capitalization of $18.97 billion.
Litecoin four-hourly chart
The above chart of LTC shows the strong upward march of the digital asset to $413.65 this month, after which began its descent. The coin has now slipped by almost 30% and was seeing a bearish pressure. This bearishness could result in its value stumbling further.
The market was open to more volatility and this was indicated by Bollinger Bands. The divergence of the bands was suggesting that the price has been moving more rapidly than before and may continue to do so. Meanwhile, the signal line was hovering above the candlesticks highlighting the downward trending price.
The rise in selling pressure has pushed the digital asset lower and as per the relative strength index, this selling pressure was rising. RSI value had briefly hit 30, which is the oversold zone. However, a recovery pushed the indicator’s value higher. Now that the selling pressure continued, RSI has been moving towards the oversold zone again.
The money which momentarily made its way into the market might seep out. Chaikin Money Flow suggested that new money was entering the market with the recent recovery.
Take Profit: $273.89
Risk to Reward: 1.33
The current Litecoin market was suggesting the rise of bearishness in the market. As LTC’s value moved close to $286, the selling pressure was visibly dominant and the traders might want to tread carefully.
