The American defense industry research agency DARPA has asked Inca Digital to develop a new cryptographic tool to study the impact of cryptocurrencies on US national security.
A contract will be signed with the organization, according to which the Inca Digital division will provide data on the use of blockchain technology in illegal operations. Research should also systematize the impact of digital assets on America’s financial system.
Inca Digital CEO Adam Zarinski said the digital asset segment has amazing prospects. However, the facts of manipulations with the cryptocurrency market and the activities of criminals, which can become a direct threat to US national security, cannot be ignored, the expert emphasized.
In the past, the editors of Crypto.ru informed: according to analysts, sales of virtual real estate in Metaverse have fallen by 98% relative to the global highs formed last year. Previously, digital earth was promoted as a massive innovation in the Web3 ecosystem. This concept interested many investors, however, the prolonged stagnation in the cryptocurrency market had a negative impact on this industry.
Many critics point out that virtual real estate can no longer be considered a scarce active, and therefore such a rapid demand from consumers is currently not observed.
However, experts emphasize that it is impossible to put an end to the Metaverse. In the form of evidence, experts cite data from which it follows that by September 6 of this year, more than 4,000 unique names associated with the Web3 ecosystem were registered in the United States. This indicates that institutional investors are still interested in the Metaverse industry.
