Merchant Bank Global Digital Assets (GDA) is joining the DigitalBits ecosystem, the company announced today. The goal of the partnership is to further enterprise adoption for branded cryptocurrencies. GDA is the first North American merchant bank to focus on blockchain and digital assets. It will provide the infrastructure for consumers, merchants, brands and payment providers to benefit from branded cryptocurrencies, including branded stablecoins.
GDA and its subsidiaries have worked with fortune 500 companies, such as Toronto Dominion Bank, governments in North America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia, as well as some of the world’s largest digital ecosystems, such as TRX and the ONT networks.

Both companies want to help bring blockchain to the average user. GDA will focus on introducing branded cryptocurrencies to existing clients and enterprises alike, generating further support for the emerging asset category of branded stablecoins.
“Brands and corporations may spur the next wave for banking the unbanked, and we believe that branded currencies may be the first glimpse of achieving this. With DigitalBits, we intend to bring this emerging asset category together with today’s digital banking solutions,” said GDA CEO Michael Gord.

Ethereum Price Outlook as the DXY Index Crash Continues
Cryptocurrency prices remained in an upbeat tone on Thursday as the US dollar index continued its bearish move. Bitcoin, the biggest cryptocurrency in the world, rose to $23,165, the highest level in months. Similarly, Ethereum has risen by more than 4% in the past 24 hours while BNB Coin and XRP surged to $307 and $0.41, respectively.
US dollar index retreats
Cryptocurrencies have an inverse relationship with the US dollar index. For example, the DXY, which looks at the performance of the greenback vs other currencies, soared to a 20-year high of $115 in 2022. As that happened, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin plunged during the year.
The foundation of this relationship is the Federal Reserve. In most periods, the US dollar index tends to rise when the Fed is extremely hawkish and vice versa. And it was extremely hawkish in 2022 as it hiked interest rates by more than 400 basis points.
Therefore, while the Fed has remained hawkish recently, the US dollar has dropped because of what the data is saying. Data published recently showed that America’s inflation is easing. The closely watched consumer price index dropped to 6.5% in December while core inflation fell to 5.7%.
At the same time, other parts of the economy are showing that the American economy is indeed recoiling. Retail sales dropped sharply in December while many…

What is Stargate Finance?
DeFi has emerged as one of the most important areas in the blockchain industry. In fact, with the metaverse and NFTs struggling, it is the only bastion of hope for the sector.

Stargate Finance is a little-known platform in the DeFi industry. It exists in numerous blockchains like Ethereum, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Arbitrum, and Optimism. Like most cross-chain blockchains, Ethereum is the most dominant player in Stargate, where it has a TVL of more than $102 million.
Stargate Finance is a DeFi protocol that makes it possible for users to stake, farm, and transfer tokens across multiple chains. It describes itself as a fully composable liquidity transport protocol that lives at the heart of the omnichain.
