Polish draft of the PEPP statute
On March 22, 2022, the deadline for the implementation of the EU Regulation 2019/1238 on PEPP expired. The draft of the Polish act itself was created at the end of 2020. However, in this case, most European Union countries act sluggishly and have still not implemented the content of the regulation into their legal systems. The only example of implementing this regulation is Slovakia and the fintech headquartered there Finax.
Purpose of the PEPP
The main objective of this product is to create such a voluntary pension product that will be used throughout the European Union. The Union is aware that, due to the difficult demographic situation, Member States will provide pensions in such amounts that will not allow for a peaceful, safe and, above all, dignified life after many years of hard work. For example, in Poland, the amount of pensions of current 30- and 40-year-olds is estimated at only 25% of their current salary. Suggested by the EU, it is to build self-awareness of citizens regarding saving. It is also an incentive to take better care of your finances and manage your household budget by increasing your retirement savings.

FTX Crypto Exchange
It is one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. In January 2022, it was valued at $32 billion. However, in a fairly short time, it significantly lost its value. What were the reasons for this?
It all started with the information published on November 2, 2022 by CoinDesk
(link to the article: https://www.coindesk.com/business/2022/11/02/divisions-in-sam-bankman-frieds-crypto-empire-blur-on-his-trading-titan-alamedas-balance -sheet/ ). It was revealed in the content of this article that Alameda Research (another company founded by the founder of FTX) is heavily dependent on FTT – a token issued by this exchange. In view of this balance sheet, it was realized that it was not as expected. Previously, FTX was presented as a professional, very advanced and successful operation. After this article, this opinion turned the other way to the disadvantage of this exchange and its management.
