10 Weirdest Logos Of All Time, Most Have Been Replaced But Not Forgot Breaking News

Truth be told, most logos are strictly okay. Some are clever and a relative few have become pop culture icons.

And then, there are the logos that generate wonder – specifically, the wonder of who the hell gave the okay to hoist them on an unsuspecting public. For your reading pleasure, here are 10 logos that represent the most astonishing failed opportunities to sell a product, brand or organization through graphic design.

1. Bad Girls Coffee Company. The designer of the logo for this business in Salem, Oregon, seems to have gotten the design inspiration from binge watching Chesty Morgan movies. The company is no longer with us, but the logo lives on in Internet-based infamy.

2. Highlight. Whereas a logo is traditionally supposed to appeal to the viewer, this logo creatied eye irritation in a manner similar to watching a 3D movie without those funny red-and-blue eyeglasses. Highlight was a short-lived app that briefly made headlines for disclosing the private information of its users, and neither the app nor its blurry logo have been missed.

Bitcoin ETF Check, What’s Next For BTC Breaking News

The approval of a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) in the U.S. has come true. Different actors in the crypto space have tried to receive the greenlight from that country’s regulator (SEC) for little less than a decade. Related Reading | Bitcoin ETF Receives Approval from SEC, Marking Historic Day for Crypto Major achievement for the crypto industry, there is a sensation of euphoria in the market with Bitcoin reaching a 24-hour high of around $63,000. There has been some retracement since that peak, but BTC’s price continues to trade north of $61,000, at the time of writing. Investment firm QCP Capital commented on the BTC ETF approval. As reported by NewsBTC, the investment products will track the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Bitcoin futures. Thus, some have argued that it’ll be a poorly execute product to benefit Wall Street and institutions. QCP Capital said: The approval of a Bitcoin ETF is a positive development. Whatever the case may be, a progressive step from the regulator is good for Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market at large. Opposite to the opinion of those against the Bitcoin ETF approval, QCP Capital believes this product will “sideline institutional” investors due to its characteristics. Thus, the U.S. retail sector could become the predominant player.

Therefore, institutional investors could have little incentive to trade this investment product in step of simply buying CME contracts.  QCP Capital said: We are not sure if these futures-based ETFs will be able to draw enough new money to trigger an exponential move higher like the one we saw in Q4 2020. The market could experience a new inflow of capital, as expected from traders and operators, as investors move “out of Gold ETFs into Bitcoin”. It remains to be seen if this move will be able to sustain a rally. After The Bitcoin ETF, Is Ethereum Next In Line? In addition to the potential lack of sufficient flows to hold BTC’s current levels, operators seem to have price in the Bitcoin ETF approval, QCP Capital added. There have been rumors going around for the past two weeks with the SEC Chair himself Gary Gensler hinting at this positive possibility. This could contribute with a potential retracement and trigger a “buy the rumor, sell the news event”. In the future, QCP Capital expects an Ethereum ETF with similar characteristics to be approved as the CME offers ETH based products. The firm said: (…) this also means that until other coins have a futures contract, the US will only be limited to Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs for the time being. Other variables might come in to play to change market dynamics: a growth in CME BTC futures trading volume, a focus on other crypto related issues, the firm said, the increase in Bitcoin based instruments to generate yield. However, one of the most important variables might be the potential decline in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC). A favorite tool amongst institutions to gain BTC exposure, an ETF could render it obsolete. Thus, the crypto market could face some uncertainty.

QCP Capital added the following: What could happen for GBTC in the future is a possible takeover and delisting. We are not sure what market impact this might have but it would be worth keeping an eye on what happens with the largest private Bitcoins treasury with 680,000 BTC.
