Chinese giant Meitu invested another $50 million in Bitcoin and Ethereum. Meanwhile, the number of Bitcoin ETF applications before the U.S. SEC is beginning to pile up.

NFTsAmid the NFT craze, renowned American comic book company, DC Comics, joined the NFT race with the release of its set of Batman collectibles. The company issued a stern warning to creators who plan on creating or selling Batman tokens.

After indicating his interest to sell a song about NFTs, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had a change of heart, revealing that it just “doesn’t feel right.”

Still on NFTs, the first humanoid robot-created NFT is expected to make its debut on March 23. Meanwhile, EtherCards joined the NFT race through the launch of its unique framework on March 18.
