Erdogan – „We are at war with cryptocurrencies“: Turkey seems eager to become a major blockchain hub as it is considered to be a nation with one leg in Europe and the other in Asia. Nonetheless, the same passion does not apply to cryptos, as Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan insisted recently. The president hosted a question-and-answer event in Mersin, during which he said Turkey had absolutely no intention of embracing cryptocurrencies: „On the contrary, we have a separate war, a separate fight against them. We would never lend support to [cryptocurrencies]. Because we will move forward with our own currency that has its own identity.”

Ethereum’s spot setup looks grim, but derivatives data tells a different story: Ether price is stuck in a rut, but derivatives data shows pro traders are bullish even with ETH below $3,000. ETH price fell below the $3,000 support on September 20 as global markets entered a risk-aversion mode. The Invesco China Technology ETF (CQQQ) closed down 4.2%, while the SPDR S&P Metals and Mining ETF (XME) lost 3.8%. Some analysts pointed to the potential ripple effects of the default of Evergrande, a major Chinese real estate company. In contrast, others blame the ongoing debates over the debt limit in Washington as the catalyst for this week’s volatility. As a result, the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX), usually referred to as the „stock market fear index,“ jumped by more than 30% to reach its highest level since May. On September 19, United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen called for Congress to raise the US debt ceiling again in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. Yellen suggested that avoiding this would risk causing the government to default on payments and generate a „widespread economic catastrophe.“

Curious inheritance dispute in Saxony – man wants to bequeath property to dog: Bernd Engelmann is the owner of a river property in Löbau in the German state of Saxony. Among other things, a restaurant is located there. According to Engelmann’s will, the estate will not go to his next of kin when he dies. The 71-year-old wants his dog Anna to inherit the property. The curious plan is not particularly well received by his children. The former restaurateur takes his plans even further. Since his dog Anna does not have eternal life, he has had her mated with a purebred dog from Pilsen in the Czech Republic. So his inheritance is to enable a whole family of dogs to live carefree. How and why Engelmann came up with the idea of bequeathing his inheritance to his animal friends is unknown.
