Albania To Plan Crypto Regulation Framework

We don’t hear very often about Albania, but the country is now in the news as the federal government is working towards making Albania a hub for digital asset investment in the Western Balkan region.

This is big news especially since the region “still remains skeptical to digital currency” according to the latest reports.

A New Regulatory Framework in the Works

The country is planning to create a regulatory framework for digital assets, making it join the likes of Singapore, Malta, Australia, and Israel as countries warming up to digital coins.

The country’s Prime Minister, Edi Rama, spoke to the local agencies regarding the latest developments praising the role of cryptocurrencies. He believes that Albania “can become a hub for potential investors targeting to get involved in this revolution of global finances.”

He further added,

“As part of our effort to open up new markets and create new opportunities for well-paid jobs and qualified people… we are exploring the possibility of setting up a regulatory framework on cryptocurrency which is a shocking novelty nowadays and where the opportunity to be innovative and set up a center of gravity for…

Young Thug’s ‘On the Rvn’ Has Redeemed His Sub-Par Compilation

Jeffrey Lamar Williams, the American rap goblin Young Thug, has unquestionably become one of the most prominent acts in the hip-hop community. He’s done so, in part, by being one of the most collaborative, hard-working artists the genre has to offer, releasing seven full-length projects that have made the Billboard 200 chart, all in the last four years. Very few artists could release that much music while maintaining the kind of quality he has. Simply put, in more ways than one, Young Thug…

Offset Joins Young Thug On Updated “On The Rvn”: Listen

Following the release of Young Thug’s On The Rvn EP last month, the rapper revealed that one of the biggest features on the project did not make the cut in time. The title track, which opens Thug’s latest, was intended to feature Migos rapper Offset, but for whatever reason, did not include his verse upon release. As of Monday, that verse has been added to the record, and it was worth the wait. Offset rides the soft focus steel drums of the CuBeatz and London On Da Track beat with the…

‘On the Rvn’ shines in vocal experimentation, collaboration

Atlanta rapper Young Thug, born Jeffery Lamar Williams, is one of the most intriguing figures in hip-hop, representing a dichotomy of classic hip-hop appeal and the avant-garde. Young Thug’s eccentric vocals and lyrics combined with his unique, often androgynous personal style have made him the subject of both acclaim and rejection in the hip-hop world. The rapper remains unfazed by his critics, however, continuing to evolve in intriguing ways throughout his discography. With his latest project “On the Rvn,” Young Thug maintains the formula of experimentation and raw charisma that made “Jeffery” (2016) and “Beautiful Thugger Girls” (2017) such compelling projects. A six-track EP, “On the Rvn” contains some of Young Thug’s most exciting material yet but ultimately lacks the same intrigue as previous releases.

The EP opens with title track “On the Rvn,” produced by longtime collaborator London On Da Track. Young Thug takes his time with the flow of each verse, gliding across the tropical-flavored beat. His performance is decidedly unmemorable, but the song remains an enjoyable start to the project. Next comes “Icey,” a more engaging song…

Cryptocurrency ATMs are gaining global recognition and acceptance, with Belgium and the Netherlands also opening their arms to the crypto teller devices. Data released by Statista showed that as of August, Amsterdam is leading the race with about 12 crypto ATMs installed, while Luxembourg is lagging behind despite it being a global center of traditional finances.

It’s worth noting, however, that the…
