The drama with the national debt continues
Despite the best efforts of the authorities and the personal involvement of US President yesterday Monday, the issue of the US government debt is not solved, and the risks to the market continue to grow as the June 1, 2023 deadline approaches.
The central theme of the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek magazine is The fall of U.S. prestige: the true cost — and dire consequences — of the debt ceiling drama.

Let’s grow together!
Tether’s Risky Game
Tether, the issuer of the leading USDT stablecoin, has overtaken Thailand, the Philippines, and Israel in the size of its investment in U.S. government debt; Mexico, Australia, and the UAE are next.
With the debt crisis looming, Tether is increasing its investments, specifically in US debt, potentially threatening the stability of the crypto market in the event of a US default. Tether put a total of $53 billion in the U.S. government’s debt, becoming a major player at the level of the average state.
Is FTX 2.0 about to launch?
In a new lawsuit dated May 22, the FTX team shared a compensation report that highlights the implementation of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy. From this boring document, it appears that the FTX team plans to restart the crypto exchange by the second quarter of 2024. For example, in the column for the payment document, say “review the next steps and comments on the restart of FTX”.
If they restart, will you trade on the FTX 2.0?
If interested in meme tokens
The most bullish #MemeTokens of the past 24 hours:
 🔔 Hybrid NFTs
A new NFT monetization scheme is gaining popularity on Amazon’s auction site. NFT project Pudgy Penguins has launched the Pudgy Toys and Pudgy World series, selling physical avatars of their NFTs as toys. Here’s how they describe their project themselves:
“Pudgy World is an experience that gives the non-NFT public their very first blockchain wallet, Soulbound NFTs, and Tradeable NFTs, all in one simple sign up with an email address.
Included in each toy is a birth certificate that unlocks a unique trait box from season 1 of Pudgy World. When you create your Forever Pudgy Penguin, you are minting it on the blockchain as a soulbound NFT while each trait is a tradeable NFT.”
So far, the Pudgy Penguins have sold over $500,000 worth of physical toys in their Amazon store. All NFT owners will receive royalties from the sales. This original project has already hit the bestseller section of the Amazon store.
 🔔 Render token ($RNDR) may take off
