After their Araneta concert, "WYAT" will head on to Cebu (October 1), Clark (October 8), and Davao (October 15). They have yet to announce the venue and tickecting for their Dubai, New York, Los Angeles and Singapore stops.
On the same day on September 17, Filipino and global acts will headline the hybrid staging of Globe GDay's G Music Fest.

After their stint at the G Music Fest, The Juans will stage their debut concert dubbed “The Juans Live in Araneta” at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on October 23. 
Composed of four members — Carl Guevarra, Japs Mendoza, RJ Cruz and Chael Adriano — they are the hitmakers behind hit songs like "Dulo," "Hatid," and "Hindi Tayo Pwede." 
Apart from being an anticipated music fest, Globe's G Day will also highlight installation art and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on September 17.

Non-fungible token (NFT) sales this week dropped 10.88% lower than the week prior. Roughly $118.02 million worth of NFTs were sold this week compared to last week’s $132.43 million. Further, the top two NFT collections with the largest market capitalizations shed significant value during the past seven days. While Bored Ape Yacht Club’s market valuation lost 21.29%, Cryptopunks’ market cap slid by 19.18%.
NFTs had a lackluster week as sales and prices have followed in sync with falling crypto asset prices. Statistics show that a large number of NFT collections have lost considerable market value during the past week. For instance, metrics show that Bored Ape Yacht Club’s (BAYC) floor value on September 13, 2022, was $114,388 and today, the floor value is around $90,026. BAYC’s market valuation on September 13 was $1.14 billion and today it’s down 21.29% to $900.25 million.
Data shows that the second most expensive NFT floor value belonged to Cryptopunks on September 13, and that’s still the case today. However, the cheapest Cryptopunk last week was around $98,941, but today you can get one for $79,960. Cryptopunks’ market cap has nosedived 19.18% lower during the past week. The same can be said for a majority of blue chip NFT collections like PROOF Collective, Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC), Castaways, and Doodles.
Seven-day statistics show that the BAYC NFT collection is the compilation with this week’s top sales, as $8,603,290 in trades were recorded. BAYC sales have increased by 17.33% and the second largest NFT collection in terms of weekly sales is RENGA. The RENGA NFT collection has managed to print $5,822,323 in seven-day sales, up 121.08% since last week. Overall, however, NFT sales across 17 blockchains monitored by cryptoslam.io are down 10.88% lower than last week.

The top five most expensive NFTs sold this week all stemmed from the BAYC collection and include Bored Ape #441, Bored Ape #2897, Bored Ape #5733, Bored Ape #4179, and Bored Ape #1846. Bored Ape #441 sold for 351,000 DAI and Bored Ape #2897 sold for 215.38 ether or $296,404.

Michael Saylor can't stop: MicroStrategy now holds 130,000 Bitcoin – Cointelegraph

Published

on

MicroStrategy bought an additional 301 BTC for $6 million at an average price of $19,851, the company’s executive chairman announced on Twitter.
MicroStrategy now owns 0.62% of all the Bitcoin (BTC) that will ever be mined. The company’s executive chairman, Michael Saylor, announced that the company bought another 301 BTC for roughly $6 million at an average price of $19,851 per BTC. 
In sum, the company is one of the planet’s largest holders of the asset, owning 130,000 BTC. Apparently, Saylor likes round numbers, buying 301 BTC to reach the 130,000 milestone. 
MicroStrategy has purchased an additional 301 bitcoins for ~$6.0 million at an average price of ~$19,851 per #bitcoin. As of 9/19/22 @MicroStrategy holds ~130,000 bitcoins acquired for ~$3.98 billion at an average price of ~$30,639 per bitcoin.https://t.co/5kYW98ij4I
Due to plunging price action, the company’s investment is down substantially in U.S. dollar terms. MicroStrategy’s entry price is roughly $30,639 per BTC, and the Securities and Exchange Commission filing states that the firm has bought 130,000 BTC at an aggregate purchase price of approximately $3.98 billion.
If MicroStrategy started stacking sats (buying Bitcoin) at today’s prices, it would have spent $2.48 billion on 130,000 BTC. Saylor is currently at a paper loss of over a billion dollars.
According to the SEC filing, the company made the purchase with “excess cash.” Saylor recently stepped down as CEO of the company to focus on buying more Bitcoin, while Washington, DC has taken aim at the billionaire in a tax evasion lawsuit.
Bitcoin enthusiasts were quick to commend Saylor’s buy. Referred to as the “Chad” or “Gigachad,” Saylor’s conviction and commitment to buying Bitcoin despite the investment being underwater has garnered both a devout following and numerous critics.

Other large wallet addresses include that of crypto exchange Bitfinex, which holds 170,000 BTC, and a Binance reserve wallet that holds 125,000 BTC. Binance is the world’s largest crypto exchange and has several wallets holding six figures of Bitcoin. Regarding individuals, Saylor has stated that he holds Bitcoin, and FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried and Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao are also “hodlers” — a meme that became popular jargon for holding crypto.
