"Patience is the key to long term happiness. It shows you can handle whatever life throws your way. It’s tougher around the holidays, but I believe in all of you!"
"Keep pushing forward. Respect others. Stand for your beliefs. Bear markets aren't for the faint of heart. We've seen so many people lose themselves to the craziness and turn into control police or straight fudders on everything and anything. This is a game for the strong folks."
"Before thoughts to words are realized into your existence ask are these words harmful or helpful. Then decide if you want to engage in conversation knowing you’ve made the choice to hurt or help. I Always go with the feel good vibes first😎"

Food For Thought
"Life is like a camera. Just focus on what's important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives and if things don't turn out - just take another shot."
"If you don't design your own life plan, chances are someone else will plan for you. And guess what they have planned? Not very much. Own the ground you walk on and let NO ONE walk all over you 😉 As always, #BeKind 💙"
"Be a good person but don't waste you time proving it."
Blockchain for Electricity Grid Cybersecurity
A Department of Energy (DOE) research lab is using blockchain to make the electricity grid more resilient to cybersecurity attacks.
Just last month, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GOA) outlined some of the risks of the electricity grid to cyberattacks. It previously found that the Department of Energy focuses more on securing the grid’s generation and transmission systems. But the GOA wants to see more work on the distribution side.
That’s a key area explored by the DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, particularly for two-way communications with edge devices such as solar panels.
One of the ways a hacker could cause an outage is by targeting the devices themselves by altering the device settings. A hash or digital fingerprint of the device settings can be stored on the blockchain and constantly monitored to see if they change. When they are updated, it’s possible to check whether or not the change was authorized. [Source: Ledger Insights]
‘Thunder Attack’ Busts $1.7B Tether-fueled Money Laundering Ring
Chinese authorities say they’ve arrested 63 people in a self-styled “thunder attack” on a money laundering gang suspected of washing more than $1.7 billion via crypto.
In a coordinated bust, the Horqin branch of the Tongliao Public Security Bureau in northeastern China dispatched more than 200 police across 17 provinces and municipalities, according to a statement.
It took more than three months to dismantle the ring, police said, who noted the gang used leading stablecoin tether (USDT) to launder gambling and other illicit proceeds on behalf of domestic and foreign criminal groups.
Roughly $18.6 million in cash and assets have been seized. The gang allegedly persuaded individuals via Telegram to register accounts with crypto exchanges — mules for criminal funds. [Source: Blockworks]
Epic Games Launches New Web3 Programming Language, Verse
With Web3 growing every day, new programming languages are entering the space. Still, its progress is impeded by a shortage of developers. EpicGames introduced Verse, a programming language for Metaverse. Verse aims to engage the community in a rich language. With this, Verse joins the likes of Clarity, Solidity, Curry, Mercury and Rust web3 programming languages.
Verse is an open-sourced declarative, functional logic language (like Curry and Mercury) which has an unusual static type system (types are first-class values). Verse is lenient, as in everything gets evaluated in the end only when it is “ready”. It cannot be strict as it includes call-by-value (functions can be called before the argument has a value). Instead of using nomads, it has an effect system. [Source: Blockchain Council]
MetaMask Institutional, Cobo and Gnosis Dao Team Up for Soulbound Token Project
Soulbound tokens (SBTs) are becoming a mainstay in the Web3 space for users and projects to define themselves in digital reality.
A Dec. 13 announcement from Cobo, a digital asset custodian and blockchain technology developer, revealed a new SBT project which unites crypto industry giants to cater to users’ developing digital identities.
Cobo, MetaMask Institutional and Gnosis DAO teamed up to create “Evolution,” an SBT project, a tool to help users define themselves in digital reality and stay up to date on industry trends.
A spokesperson for Cobo told Cointelegraph that since SBTs cannot be sold on the market, it helps create a bridge between Web2 and Web3 surrounding user identity.
“This provides assurance to the token provider and allows them to give exclusive access and benefits to their targeted users by giving them an identity."
While SBTs may be the new trend to mark a digital persona, they will not replace nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and the inherent utilities that come with tradable assets. [Source: Cointelegraph]
