Big Eyes Coin, Takes Meme-Ing Against Tamadoge To The Next Level

Big Eyes Coin (BIG) is a new meme coin in the crypto market following the success of one of its predecessor meme coins Dogecoin (DOGE). Meme coins are cryptocurrencies based on internet jokes known as ‘memes’, often using a mascot for their memes. These tokens usually run on either Bitcoin or Ethereum blockchain. Big Eyes Coin (BIG) and the Tamadoge (TAMA) coin run on the Ethereum blockchain. Big Eyes is a meme coin on a mission to create a community-based cryptocurrency whilst also living up to its ‘meme’ name on Twitter.

What Is the Big Eyes Coin?

The Big Eyes Coin (BIG) is a meme coin new to the cryptocurrency market. The coin bases its currency around ‘cuteness’ and aims to be a community-owned currency, with 80% of its tokens being available to the public via pre-sale. They further care for the community by ensuring their tokens are 100% secure through Solidiity Finance. Alongside their care for their human community, they also stretch their hand out to the animal community by putting aside 5% of their tokens to donate to ocean-saving charities. This aim will also help their Big Eyes Coin (BIG) community by joining the fight to combat climate change and save our Earth.

What Is Tamadoge?

Tamadoge (TAMA) is a meme coin that powers a play-to-earn game that Tamagotchi inspired. The Tamadoge coin runs on the Ethereum blockchain and can be used to play the game where players can travel up the leaderboard by gaining doge points.

However, only the one with the most doge points at the end will earn their winnings at the end of the month. Tamadoge has only committed to selling 50% of their tokens via pre-sale compared to Big Eyes Coin’s (BIG) 80%. Tamadoge would probably prefer to leave more available for future events than have more in circulation for the community.

Big Eyes Coin vs Tamadoge: Twitter Feud

Big Eyes Coin and Tamadoge have recently engaged in Twitter banter. The Big Eyes Coin Twitter team was attempting to live up to its meme-coin name and make memes of its competitors, which then turned into a hilarious back and forth with the Big Eyes team not holding back and giving those seeing it play out some great memes. After Carl Dawkins called Big Eyes Coin (BIG) a scam that copied Tamdoge, the Big Eyes Coin Twitter team retaliated with an array of funny responses.

Big Eyes Coin followed Carl Dawkins’s insult with this sassy image:

The Big Eyes Coin team photoshopped Carl Dawkins to look like he was hugging their mascot, in a show of irony insinuating he loved Big Eyes Coin (BIG).

This irony wasn’t lost on Tamadoge’s Head of Growth as he responded to the funny, innocent meme in an aggressive joke:

Tamadoge’s Head of Growth claimed he wasn’t hugging the mascot but strangling it instead. However, the Big Eyes Coin (BIG) team weren’t deterred by the slight aggression and decided to produce another funny meme comparing the two crypto coins, showing that Big Eyes Coin knows how to have fun and won’t be deterred by Tamadoge’s behaviour.

Big Eyes Coin (BIG) clearly knows the meaning of meme-ing and has lived up to its mem coin name on Twitter. Big Eyes Coin’s pre-sale is live now, and we have a unique 5% code for free additional tokens on top of your purchase.

Billionaire Hedge Fund Founder Ray Dalio Steps Down As Co-CIO Of Bridgewater Associates

Billionaire hedge fund founder Ray Dalio has stepped down as chief executive of Bridgewater Associates, according to a transfer of voting rights on September 30. Bridgewater’s co-chief executive explained on Tuesday that “Ray no longer has the final word,” in regard to the hedge fund’s future.

Hedge Fund Giant and Bridgewater Associates Founder Ray Dalio Steps Down, Co-CEOs Mark Bertolini and Nir Bar Dea to Take Over Senior Management

On Tuesday, October 4, after founding Bridgewater Associates more than 40 years ago, Ray Dalio stepped down as co-CIO. Bloomberg’s Erik Schatzker first reported on the matter after the hedge fund founder relinquished all of his voting rights to the board of directors on September 30. After founding Bridgewater in 1975, Dalio was considered a mogul hedge fund titan and within the first ten years of business, Bridgewater got a $5 million investment from the World Bank.

Schatzker report cites Bridgewater’s co-chief executive, Nir Bar Dea, who told the reporter “Ray no longer has the final word.” Dalio also spoke about his resignation on Twitter and he told the public that today was a special day for him because he “transitioned my control of Bridgewater to the next generation.” Dalio added:

I feel great about the people and ‘machine’ now in control. This transition moment is the culmination of a 47-year journey.

Dalio is also well known for being a critic of bitcoin (BTC) and blockchain technology. The hedge fund titan has explained on many occasions that he believes governments would eventually outlaw cryptocurrencies.

“I think at the end of the day if it’s really successful, they will kill it, and they will try to kill it,” Dalio said two months before bitcoin (BTC) reached $69K per unit. “I think they will kill it because they have ways of killing it,” he added.

Last February, Dalio noted that he had a “tiny percentage” of crypto in his portfolio because he wanted to “diversify.” However, he further stressed: “It’ll be outlawed, probably by different governments.” As far as Bridgewater is concerned, Dalio explained that the hedge fund’s co-CEOs Mark Bertolini and Nir Bar Dea would be in charge of senior management.

“Hopefully until I die, I will continue to be a mentor, an investor, and board member at Bridgewater, because I and they love doing those things together,” Dalio concluded in his remarks on Tuesday.

Pro-Russian Groups Raised $400,000 In Crypto Since Ukraine Invasion, Report Reveals

Pro-Russian Groups Raised $400,000 In Crypto Since Ukraine Invasion, Report Reveals

Groups supporting Russia’s war effort in Ukraine have been actively collecting cryptocurrency to fund paramilitary operations and evade sanctions, researchers say. According to a new report, these organizations use Telegram to raise money then used to pay for equipment and training.

Paramilitary Groups Employ Cryptocurrency to Fund Russian Operations in Ukraine

Pro-Russian groups have reportedly raised a serious amount of cryptocurrency for Russia’s military activities in Ukraine, circumventing U.S.-led sanctions. According to a study carried out by the digital asset compliance and risk management firm TRM Labs, the total had reached $400,000 as of Sept. 22, CNBC reported on Monday.

The study unveiled that these organizations were using the popular encrypted messaging app Telegram to offer supporters options to send funds, which were later spent to purchase supplies for Russian-affiliated militia groups and pay for their combat training at locations near the Ukrainian border.

One of these, Task Force Rusich, has been labeled by the U.S. Treasury as a “neo-Nazi paramilitary group that has participated in combat alongside Russia’s military in Ukraine.” The department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has placed it under sanctions. It was trying to raise money for items such as thermal imaging equipment and radios on a Telegram channel.

Another group identified by TRM Labs, the Novorossiya Aid Coordinating Center, raised about $21,000 in cryptocurrency, mainly bitcoin (BTC), with the aim of buying drones, the report added. The organization was established in 2014 to support Russian operations in Ukraine.

The findings come amid mounting sanctions against Russia over its decision to attack Ukraine in late February, which have severely limited its access to the global financial system. The Russian government is now working to legalize crypto payments for international settlements in order to circumvent the restrictions.

Crypto Said to Lack Liquidity for Large-Scale Russian Transactions

While the crypto space may not have the sufficient liquidity Russia would need to move large sums of money, as experts have pointed out, it has enough to allow paramilitary groups to make transfers for the items they need to acquire. Ari Redbord, head of legal and government affairs at TRM Labs, elaborated:

They’re probably using non-compliant exchanges to off-ramp those funds… Of course, there’ll be more. But will it be billions of dollars? Highly unlikely.

To pinpoint the groups, TRM Labs used publicly available wallet addresses and cross-checked other websites and online activity. Redbord remarked, however, that it’s not possible to establish with certainty whether they were working with the Russian government.

“I think an interesting part of this story is that crypto is just a form of payment in these cases. It’s a way to move funds. And there’s an example of it being used for good and example of it being used for bad in this context,” the executive added. Ukrainian volunteer groups and government have been also relying on crypto donations to fund their defense and humanitarian efforts.

The latest research on the topic comes after, earlier this year, a report by blockchain analytics firm Chainalysis identified 54 pro-Russian groups that had collectively received over $2.2 million in various cryptocurrencies. Although most of the crypto funds were sent to several of these organizations, the rest had received considerable amounts as well, the company said.
