Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 3, Jun 22) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
In this week’s Web3 news roundup, I have news from PayPal which now allows you to transfer your crypto from PayPal to other wallets; external wallets like Meta Mask, and Coin base, etc. And you can also transfer it to a hardware device. Earlier that was not possible, which was a complaint from the community,when it comes to PayPal. But now PayPal says they have made that available. So any cryptocurrency-Ethereum, or Bitcoin, can be transferred to other wallets. The other news is from Meta. Meta has now announced that you will be able to sync your VR fitness data, in your Oculus VR headset, with your phone. Earlier this information is available only in the Move app, which is the Meta VR app on your phone. Now that syncs to Apple Health and to Oculus mobile app. That way they are starting to integrate VR with the regular mobile data, moving this information out, making it widely available for the audience to use it however they like. An interesting move.
