SafeMoon SWaP Maintenance
The SafeMoon SWaP underwent some maintenance overnight with transactions being temporarily suspended. Yesterday SafeMoon Tweeted,
"#SAFEMOONSWAP will be undergoing routine maintenance at 9 pm EST (2 am UTC) and will be down temporarily. Our partners are working with us during this time to ensure a smooth transition. 🙌 Transactions will be suspended during this update."
Galan added that he will be "doing a bit of work later" and let everyone know that "there will be app updates ready during the maintenance window."
After the maintenance ended, SafeMoon announced that they will "continue to enable [...] partners on the swap over the next few hours!"
SafeMoon Education Manager Cats shared,
"Amazing work by everyone! Future upgrades will become so much easier following this maintenance 🥳"
Galan also reminded the community,
"Make sure you update your SafeMoon Wallet in the app stores so you can have the updated SWaP. More tokens will be going live as liquidity is added."
The wallet update included:
DEX Upgrade V3
Bug fixes and improvements
Community member and beta tester Danology noted,
"#SafemoonOrbitalShield log in page got a fresh new look from the update!"
Yesterday SafeMoon CEO John Karony shared some thoughts on the current way voting ballot counting is done. He Tweeted,
“Papercuts are likely at an all time high right now with all the US ballot counting. Papercuts suck… Would be pretty sweet if we could just vote on blockchain. (Do not read into this, SafeMoon is not currently intending to solve that) #blockchain #vote #SAFEMOON #crypto"
But there are other advantages of Blockchain voting. According to this abstract published on PubMed.gov from a study conducted using Blockchain in Electronic Voting Systems, blockchain technology can overcome the issues related to electronic voting systems and offers decentralized nodes. This technology is great due to its end-to-end verification advantages and "is a beautiful replacement for traditional electronic voting solutions due to its distributed, non-repudiation, and security protection characteristics."

Food for Thought
Every day is a special day. ☀️ We must honor them and always remember that we are moving forward with all that we do. if you don't see it now, you will see the fruits of your labor when the time is right. 👍 Trust the process 🙂
Don't rush the process. Good things take time.
Don't confuse your path with your destination, just because it's stormy now, doesn't mean you aren't headed for sunshine.
Don't take criticisms from people you'd never go to for advice.
Nearly all successful people begin with two beliefs: The future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so.
If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse. It's a beautiful day to go after your dreams 😏 Make someone smile today and as always, #BeKind 💙
Clean Energy Solutions
"Unéole, a company based in Ronchin, France, has designed the ideal renewable energy generation system by combining wind turbines and solar panels in just one setup. The innovative design is ideal for urban buildings that have high energy demands but little space to accommodate the required infrastructure."
Binance Withdraws Acquisition Offer of FTX
"As a result of corporate due diligence, as well as the latest news reports regarding mishandled customer funds and alleged US agency investigations, we have decided that we will not pursue the potential acquisition of http://FTX.com. In the beginning, our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity, but the issues are beyond our control or ability to help. Every time a major player in an industry fails, retail consumers will suffer. We have seen over the last several years that the crypto ecosystem is becoming more resilient and we believe in time that outliers that misuse user funds will be weeded out by the free market.
As regulatory frameworks are developed and as the industry continues to evolve toward greater decentralization, the ecosystem will grow stronger." - Binance [View Tweet]
Gym owners aim to bring NFT memberships to wellness clubs
While many nonfungible token (NFT) projects continue to suffer losses due to the bear market, a number of organizations have begun using NFTs to solve real-world problems.
In particular, NFTs for subscription/membership-based models, or loyalty programs, are gaining traction. This point was highlighted in Forrester’s 2023 NFT and metaverse predications report, which notes: “Brands will pivot from ‘cool’ non-fungible tokens (NFTs) towards loyalty. In 2023, brands will shift their focus to NFTs linked to loyalty, brand experience, and deepening customer relationships.”
Indeed, NFT use cases such as these are being implemented today. For example, Starbucks recently announced an NFT-based loyalty program. Industry experts have also begun explaining why subscription-based services should implement NFTs to improve relationships between brands and consumers. [Source: Cointelegraph]
Bitcoin As a Strategic Asset for National Security
"The U.S. Department of the Treasury requested public comment on the national security implications of digital assets. In response, BPI submitted this report.
The values of an open society, now under threat by revanchist authoritarian states, rest at the center of our strategic interest in promoting liberal democracy around the world. Open digital assets that empower individuals can help advance the cause of freedom, stymie the objectives of authoritarian adversaries, and help advance a core national security interest. Peer-to-peer systems like Bitcoin represent the essence of autonomy, voluntary cooperation, and liberal values that our country was built on." [Source: Bitcoin Policy Institute]

Kim Kardashian Seems To Win Crypto Lawsuit
In a tentative court ruling, Kim Kardashian and Floyd Mayweather Jr. won a lawsuit accusing them of scamming EthereumMax investors. According to a complaint filed in January, investors claimed that they paid "inflated prices" for blockchain-based digital assets because EMAX tokens were hyped by the reality star and ex-boxing champion.
The tentative ruling comes just a month after the Securities and Exchange Commission accused Kardashian of failing to disclose that she had been paid $250,000 to post about tokens on Instagram. The celebrity had agreed to pay $1.26 million to settle allegations that she broke the U.S. rules by touting EMAX tokens. [Source: Investopedia]
