Sweden approves Binance
Binance has officially managed to receive regulatory approval from Sweden. This is the 7th EU member and the 15th in the world 🌏. Competitors are biting their nails, as CZ has also hinted that Binance will soon launch a hiring season with an up to 30% staff increase. As a reminder, Binance has grown from 3000 to 8000 heads in 2022. That's a crypto army💪 .
Avalance partners with Amazon
Amazon Web Services is backing Avalanche with a new partnership aimed at getting mere mortals 🤝 interested in blockchain. Starting and managing nodes has never been easier, no matter what industry you play for. Just go to the AWS Marketplace and run a node on Avalanche by clicking a button. You don't have to be a hardcore Web3 native anymore. This is Amazon's first partnership with a blockchain, by the way. The AVAX price reacted to the news with a 30% jump 🏄♂️.
SEC probes Zipmex
Zipmex was an Asian crypto exchange giant 🐘. Previously, lenders Babel and Celsius collapsed, leaving holes in Zipmex's body. As a result, Zipmex filed for bankruptcy. But that's not all, as Zipmex is under investigation by Thailand SEC for violating several laws. Namely, the exchange offered the ZipUP program, which showered users with returns from their investments. Is it a digital asset manager without a permit? Zipmex's plans to raise funds and get back in the game 📈 have become a distant memory.
BAYC drops an NFT game
Yuga is throwing wood in the fire. The same mysterious vibe 🔮; no one knows what happens at the end of the game. Dubbed Dookey Dash, it's a skill-based game that starts with a free drop of Sewer Passes to BAYC's holders, giving them the chance to play multiple times. The players will visit a sewer 🕳 to break through obstacles, simultaneously picking up fragments. Players can validate their Sewer passes to receive a "power source" by scoring points.
DOJ follows CoinDesk's lead on malicious actors
This is journalism 🤘. Coindesk has raised suspicions against Solana-based stablecoin exchange Saber Labs. According to media reports, the founders created 11 addresses and exchanged assets between them to boost Solana's TVL and SOL in 2021. The founder said that he built several projects from each other so that the dollar could be counted several times. By the way, Saber is still up and running, but the Discord server is dead and users are angry. I wonder how angry 😡 the head of Solana is.
Conclusion: The market is growing today, and we're happy again for all Ethereans and Bitcoiners. Just as we're happy for Binance with the Swedish license and Avalanche with the AWS partnership. And do you care what the new BAYC will look like? Follow us on social media to not miss anything.
See you tomorrow, folks! Thanks for being with us.Brought to you by Maksym, Yana, and Aleksandar :)

What is Crypto Ping Pong digest?
TC lads here are working quite hard and from time to time we gotta chill. Recently, we got ourselves a ping pong table to complete our lazy-bag-stuffed chill zone. As you all know our main hobby is Crypto, so even while we play we don’t really shut up about it. Ever.
So memes, leaks, gossips naturally come about – we collect them and share them with you in this interstellar space on our site we like to call Crypto Ping Pong digest.
