Anyone who’s played an online game knows about the way that voice chat is conducted, sometimes player who get upset will cuss out players, and arguments usually ensue. While this was the norm of voice chat for games like Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360. Things have changed in the years since t he games release. Now, activation is making themselves known that they are doing all they can to make Call of Duty an enjoyable experience for players from all walks of life, by enforcing anti-toxicity policies in Modern Warfare 2019, Cold War, and Warzone.
The Anti-Toxicity Briefing
The Call of Duty Twitter account posted a link to a blog post on the official website, explaining their stance on what should be done with Toxic players, as well as their efforts to stop the same toxicity during the past year of Call of Duty. The blog post says: “Our goal is to give players the tools needed to manage their own gameplay experience, combined with an enforcement approach that addresses hate speech, racism, sexism, and harassment.”
According to the blog post, the company has successfully, banned 350,000 players with hateful names or had a history of abuse of the voice chat function through player reports, implemented filters for words in 11 different languages to help stop hateful messages through text chat, as well as deployed in-game filters to stop the use of hateful messages or imagery in clan tags and usernames.
While it seems like a lot has been done already by Activision, this is not the end of their crusade against toxic players. “We know we have a long way to go to reach our goals. This is just the start. Addressing this is an ongoing commitment that we will not waver from. We look forward to making progress on this front and coming together with you to share in the fun and joy of playing together.”
While Activision’s efforts to stop harassment and hateful conduct in their games, frequent players of Warzone and the two previous Call of Duty titles are unpleased with Activision’s efforts in banning players with hateful names, although it’s not for any malicious reasoning. Players who are upset with the information are distraught by the fact that Call of Duty has spent more time dedicated to catching players who have said hurtful things online, rather than stopping the influx of cheaters that games like Warzone are being infested with.
When the post linking the blog on the Official Twitter was uploaded, many were quick to criticize Call of Duty’s decision to focus on banning players with offensive names.
One player by the name of @_jim1_ replied to the quote Tweet saying “Okay but you know what would make a fun gameplay experience? An anticheat.”
Another user by the name of @lebold_jacob said this in response to the blogpost, “This game has more systems in place for “toxic behavior” than for legitimate hackers ruining the game”
Some other players also found disdain that Call of Duty was banning players with offensive names purely on the basis of it offending someone. Many of these arguments state that Call of Duty’s voice chat is filled with trash talk and banter, and while it’s okay to ban people for offensive names, what constitutes hate speech and harassment is not clear enough to distinctly discern what could be cause for a ban. Regardless, Call of Duty remains adamant that their continued look into toxic behavior on their titles is going to continue. Call of Duty has been aiming itself to be more accessible from all walks of life, so the voice chat traditions found in the earlier call of duty games are going to be coming to an end.
Crypto Trader’s $20 Investment Explodes to $1,184,154,683,482 on Coinbase – But He’s Not Cashing Out
After investing $20 in the crypto markets, one crypto trader just woke up to a one-trillion dollar fortune in his Coinbase account.
Chris Williamson, a nurse from Georgia, says he invested $20 in Rocket Bunny (BUNNY) cryptocurrency on Coinbase last week. After the trade, his portfolio balance soon skyrocketed to a staggering $1,184,154,683,482.
On paper, this made Williamson the richest man in the world.
‘I woke up, it’s like 9:00 a.m. and I always check my phone to check how my crypto to see how it’s doing and I’m just like, ‘Naw, I’m sleeping.
I look at it again and I’m like… at that point I fall out of my bed, literally.”
Despite the big balance, Williamson says he was unable to cash out or send the crypto to a private wallet. He contacted both Coinbase and Rocket Bunny. A representative from Coinbase told him they were looking into the problem, while Rocket Bunny did not immediately respond.
Coinbase later confirmed the trader’s massive balance was a glitch, and would be corrected.
This isn’t the first time the crypto exchange giant had a glitch in its system. Back in April 2020, crypto analyst Captain Scio pointed out a massive blunder on the Coinbase Pro app, showing that someone had purchased 42,085 BTC, worth $306 million at the time, for just 18 cents.
Williamson is keeping a positive attitude on the situation.
“The ongoing joke right now between me and my friends in Coinbase and one of the emails I sent them was like: ‘Look, I need y’all to let me know what’s going on because I got a mega-yacht company ready to build me a penguin-shaped yacht.
‘So, you know, let me know.’”
BUNNY is a utility token on Binance Smart Chain. It’s used to power the broader Rocket Bunny ecosystem of dApps (decentralized applications), which includes Rocket Drop (launchpad), Rocket Swap (DEX) and Rocket Labs (testing ground).

PayPal and Visa Lead $300M Funding for Blockchain Capital
Blockchain Capital remains a major tech backer in the DLT space with investments in numerous crypto and DLT projects.
Fund V with $300M Funding
According to a press release published on Monday (June 22, 2021), Blockchain Capital has closed funding for its Fund V LP. The capital raise reportedly drew participation from several high-profile backers including global payment giants Visa and PayPal.
Capped at $300 million, Blockchain Capital’s latest fund was oversubscribed likely pointing to the continued appetite for DLT-related funding despite the current crypto market downturn. Apart from Visa and PayPal, university endowments, hedge funds, family offices, and pension funds also participated in the capital raise.
Bart Stephens, co-founder and managing partner at Blockchain Capital commented on the closure of the fifth VC fund, stating:
“We are incredibly honored to welcome a world class group of investors into Fund V who appreciate the value of a firm dedicated to a single industry. As founders ourselves, we know how hard it is to build companies, protocols and, indeed, a whole new industry.”
Spokespersons for both Visa and PayPal stated that their support for Blockchain Capital was part of efforts to boost innovation in digital finance. According to Jose Fernandez da Ponte, vice president and general manager of blockchain, crypto and digital currencies at PayPal:
“Investing in Blockchain Capital’s new fund allows us to engage with the entrepreneurs driving the future of the decentralized economy and the new wave of financial services.”
Serial Blockchain Backer
Blockchain Capital is a serial investor in the crypto and DLT space. The company’s portfolio of projects cuts across several facets of the emerging industry including United States-based exchange giants like Coinbase and Kraken.
Blockchain Capital’s investment portfolio also extends to the decentralized finance market arena, backing projects like Aave, UMA, and Nexus Mutual.
Since securing about $2 million in funding from Blockchain Capital and other investors back in May 2018, OpenSea has been able to attract additional investments, including a $23 million injection as reported by CryptoPotato back in March.
Binance Coin’s recovery hinged on this
Weekly losses piled up at 30% for Binance Coin on the back of high selling pressure persistent across the global cryptocurrency market. During this period, prices steadily declined from the upper ceiling of $380 to its press time level of $264. With bears in control for the moment, BNB would most likely register more losses over the coming hours. However, this could set the stage for the re-emergence of buyers back into the mix.
Binance Coin 4-hour chart
Binance Coin’s woes were elevated once bulls failed to defend $325 support from bearish pressure. A further 20% was noted from this defensive line as BNB seemed to shift towards the $260-mark. Prices were now below their 4-hour 50, 100, and 200 Simple moving average lines. An argument can be made that BNB’s short-term movement and hopes of a brief recovery now hinged on $260 support moving forward.
Visible Range’s point of control lay around $260. This meant that BNB saw peak interest by traders at this price level in the given timeframe- a reading that strengthened the area’s defense. Moreover, Relative Strength Index traded in the oversold region from where a reversal can be expected. According to the price-sensitive Stochastic RSI, some bullish resurgence had already seeped in as the index moved north after a bullish crossover. Successfully defending $260 from bears could even result in a minor jump back towards the $325-mark.
However, traders must be wary of an extended sell-off as well. Bearish momentum was building up on the Awesome Oscillator which showed no signs of a reversal just yet. A bearish outcome would likely drag BNB back towards its demand zone of $210-236
Selling pressure was dominant in the BNB market but there was a glimmer of hope at its press time price of $260. A bounce back in this region could provide a short-term push back towards $325. However, the chances of a further drawdown cannot be overlooked as well. A breakdown could see BNB trade within its demand zone of $210-236 over the coming days.
