Belated Pizza day wishes to the cryptoers of the universe. While we can joke about the $100 Million pizzas, those 10,000 bitcoins were what started mainstream ‘commerce’ for bitcoin at the time.
And, probably it’s worth the $100 Million to have a day to commemorate the act and be part of history forever.
Goldman Sachs is hosting a conference to discuss Bitcoin
An investor conference titled “Implications of Current Policies for Inflation, Gold and Bitcoin” is scheduled to be hosted on Wednesday the 27th of May, 2020.

Brazil opens investigation on discrimination against crypto brokers
Cade counselor Lenisa Rodrigues Prado decided to proceed with the investigation on Brazil Banks discriminating against crypto brokers. The lawsuit was filed in December 2019 by an Association of Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain in Brazil when Banco do Brasil closed the current accounts of Atlas.

Louisiana may offer license to crypto businesses
Bitlicense may be coming to Louisian soon. A House Bill no. 701 “Provides for the licensing and regulation of virtual currency businesses.” The bill got unanimous approval from the Louisiana House of Representatives and is making its way to the State Senate.
