Welcome to Newsletter #19.
Here we are into another week full of exciting new stuff. The next newsletter will be published on the 1st of April, that is after the end of Q1 2022. We hope to have more exciting news to share with you - hopefully, we get fiat on-ramp and KYC in the coming week, fingers crossed.
Thank you for reading and have a lovely weekend!

- Price change based on Thursday close price using latest data in range (UTC)
- Loan data source: Protonscan (Alcor exchange + Protonswap)
This week's Tweet of the week goes to not anyone else but ProtonXPR and their announcement of reaching 50k followers on Twitter! Hopefully, we see the account verified soon which will give even more credibility to the brand. It's something Will mentioned they are working on already:
