Krystle D’Souza’s fancy luxurious vacay, see breathtakingly beautiful pictures of actress

Maldives is one of the most common tourist hub, particularly of the entertainment industry. Some day or the other, different actors are seen leaving for the vacation with a bag pack full of cool and breezy outfits for their beach side looks.

Zendaya Channels a Sci-Fi Princess in a Sculptural Rick Owens Gown

Move over, Leia—there’s another sci-fi princess in town. And she wears Rick Owens.

Zendaya stepped out on Monday for a special screening of her upcoming film, Dune , in an off-white gown by the American designer, proving she’s officially ready to take her place in the science fiction canon.

The dress, which was pulled from Owen’s fall 2021 ready-to-wear collection, features all-over sequins, one sleeve, and a sculptural top that stops just below Zendaya’s chin. While the model on the runway covered her bare arm in a black opera glove, Zendaya left hers unadorned, and instead opted for Bulgari’s Serpenti Viper double-coil bracelet to compliment the outfit. The actress embraced sci-fi inspiration for her makeup as well—opting for a bold, purple eye. In all, the look is very reminiscent of a modern take on Princess Leia’s gown—which is fitting, considering the movie Zendaya is currently promoting.

This is far from the first look Zendaya has pulled out for the Dune press tour. Just yesterday, the actress wore two other show-stopping outfits for a photo call and screening of the movie. Zendaya is also in good company, considering her Dune costar, Timothée Chalamet, has never met an eclectic suit he didn’t like. For this particular screening, the actor wore a black Alexander McQueen spring 2022 suit with zipper detailing which, like Zendaya’s dress, also had a science fiction feel to it. When posing together, the pair truly looked like the rulers of Dune.

China’s Crackdown on Cryptocurrencies and its Impact on Crypto Mining Companies Outside the Country

The following post was written and/or published as a collaboration between Benzinga’s in-house sponsored content team and a financial partner of Benzinga.

Last month, the Chinese government announced a crackdown on all financial transactions involving cryptocurrencies and issued a countrywide ban on cryptocurrency mining, the energy-consuming process by which cryptocurrency tokens are produced.

When the news broke, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) fell to around $41,000 before recovering by the end of the trading day. Until the Chinese government imposed the ban, the country was the powerhouse in Bitcoin mining , with around 70% of global Bitcoin mining power. Now, cryptocurrency miners in China are flocking to neighboring Kazakhstan, Russia or North America to find refuge.

The Government crackdown comes at a time when the country’s central bank has been testing the electronic Chinese yuan (e-CNY), the nation`s digital currency that has been slowly introduced to Chinese society through a lottery system. The bank shared a notice calling out Bitcoin and Ethereum (ETH) for being issued by nonmonetary authorities.

China’s e-commerce giant, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd . (NYSE: BABA ), has subsequently announced it will no longer allow its merchants to sell crypto mining equipment starting Oct. 8. “Alibaba.com will prohibit the sale of virtual currency miners in addition to the prohibition against selling virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, BeaoCoin, QuarkCoin and Ethereum,” says the announcement on the company’s website . The ban also includes hardware, software, tutorials and strategies for obtaining virtual currencies.

A number of notable figures in the world of finance and economics have commented on the move by the Chinese government. George Selgin, economist and senior fellow at the Cato Institute, told The New York Times that the creation of the e-CNY and the crackdown on cryptos is part of the government’s move to establish a surveillance system to have greater control over its citizens.

Digital asset investment products saw inflows totaling USD 80m last week, per CoinShares data. Bitcoin (BTC) saw the largest inflows, totaling USD 70m, marking the 5th consecutive week of inflows. However, the weekly inflows remain much lower than inflows seen in Q1 this year, where there was much greater participation by US investors, per the report. BTC futures ETF could prompt further significant inflows in the coming weeks as US investors begin to add positions, it added. Meanwhile, despite ethereum (ETH) saw its second week of outflows, these flows are not significant to define a trend at present, according to CoinShares.

MTD – month-to-date; YTD – year-to-date; AUM – assets under management. Source: CoinShares Global brokerage firm Interactive Brokers Group announced its launch of crypto trading for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) in the US, enabling these RIAs to trade and custody bitcoin, ethereum (ETH) , litecoin (LTC) , and bitcoin cash (BCH) via Paxos Trust Company on behalf of clients. RIAs will benefit from the ability to manage their client’s positions in crypto in addition to stocks, options, futures, bonds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds (ETFs), said the company.

Digital asset marketplace Bakkt has announced that it has completed a business combination with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings . Bakkt’s shares of Class A common stock and warrants begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbols ‘BKKT’ and ‘BKKT WS’, respectively, starting today.

El Salvador’s mainstream bitcoin adoption is gaining momentum during the ongoing bull run as citizens are increasingly exchanging their US dollar savings for BTC, according to President Nayib Bukele.

Legal news

New York Attorney General Letitia James said she ordered two crypto lending platforms to "immediately cease their unregistered and unlawful activities in New York" and directed three other platforms to "immediately provide information about their activities and products." "Today’s actions build on that work and send a message that we will not hesitate to take whatever actions are necessary against any company that thinks they are above the law," James was quoted as saying. The Office of the Attorney General redacted the names of the firms. However, the files initially retained the names " Nexo Letter" and " Celsius Letter" before they were corrected.

Fantom (FTM) Crypto Resumes the Bullish Momentum, Cardano (ADA) Price Ready for A Breakout

Fantom bouncing off the established support zone around $2 The crypto market seems to be divided into to groups now, one group are the bullish cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum and Bitcoin which have been making decent gains in October, on the other group are cryptos such as Ripple and Litecoin which look quite boring, with slow price action. Fantom Daily Chart Analysis – September’s High Turns Into Support

Fantom is part of the first group, after having shown resilience in October. It pulled back in September from below $2 to below $1, which was the high from back in May and it turned into support. The price surged to $2.50, most of the gains coming in October, after some positive events for Fantom.

OpenOcean which is one of the leading DeFi (decentralized finance) and CeFi (centralized finance) aggregation protocols has announced that it would partner with Fantom. This will offer users more trading opportunities and prices. The other leading DeFi project, yearn.finance also announced that it would expand its multi-chain, incorporating Fantom blockchain’s DeFi ecosystem. Around the same time, Nansen which is a known data analytics provider, announced its support for Fantom.

So, all these events have helped keep Fantom bullish during October and over the weekend we saw a bounce off the support. The previous high which comes just below $2, seems to have turned into support now, so that’s a new base for FTM/USD. We’re still long on our FTM/BTC signal and are keeping it open as the bullish momentum here seems to continue. Cardano Daily Chart Analysis – Getting Squeezed Between 2 MAs

Cardano is part of the second group of cryptos. It hasn’t shown any signs of life for about three weeks now. We see that moving averages are squeezing Cardano in between them, with the 100 SMA (green) acting as support, while the 20 SMA (gray) and the 50 SMA (yellow) are acting as resistance above.

The trading range is getting narrower and a breakout is about to take place on either side. The upside is more favourable, since the momentum in the crypto market has been bullish for two weeks. The adoption of Cardano has increased too, but that hasn’t been helping the price much. Cardano Coin ADA Live Chart
