Food For Thought
"Discipline is 100 times more important than IQ."
"Nothing is really final in life. Not success, not failure. There's always chances to start again with a different perspective, a different route. A sunrise is another way of saying, Let's start again 😉 As always, #BeKind💙"
"Be gentle and kind with your words. Most people are struggling. Life is hard. Lift people up if you can. Be less judgmental and more helpful."
"Generosity is not a quest for appreciation. It’s an act of care and contribution. The point of giving is not to seek gratitude or receive recognition. It's to live by your principles. True kindness isn’t motivated by how others will react. It’s an expression of who you are."

Blockchain in Space could take Tokens and NFTs into Orbit
SpaceChain has successfully launched its second Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) payload into space aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket for installation on the International Space Station (ISS) via a SpaceX Dragon 2 spacecraft.
The mission marks SpaceChain's seventh successful blockchain payload launch into space and the second integration of its payload with the open-source platform Velas.
Once installed and tested on the ISS via Nanoracks, the space node will be capable of processing Velas blockchain on the ISS and sending Velas digital assets from space, say the SpaceChain team. These might include tokens and NFTs, in addition to performing complete high-speed transaction services across the Velas platform, including smart contract deployment and coin minting.

Cronje Says DeFi Saved Fantom: ‘We Are Cash Flow Positive’
Andre Cronje, a long-serving figure in the DeFi space, says the Fantom blockchain project he advises is cash-flow positive, earning more than $10 million in annual revenue.
Cronje shared a blog post on Monday that claims the Fantom team maintains more than $300 million in assets without specifying how much is considered liquid. “We are still scaling up,” Cronje said.
Fantom’s reported treasury, as yet unproven on-chain, is made up of around 450 million FTM ($85.7 million). There’s also $100 million in stablecoins and $100 million in undisclosed cryptocurrencies, as well as $50 million in non-crypto assets, per Cronje’s post.
Fantom is a layer-1 blockchain compatible with Ethereum Virtual Machine (and Ethereum dapps). The network competes with the likes of Solana, Avalanche and Polygon for Ethereum’s market dominance.
Cronje’s blog works to reassure investors the Fantom Foundation’s solvency while detailing its financial history. The non-profit firm, which currently employs over 40 staff according to RocketReach, has an annual salary burn rate of $7 million. Cronje expects Fantom’s coffers to last for another 30 years without touching its FTM stash.
DeFi strategies are currently bringing in $6 million per year for the Foundation, said Cronje, revenue it uses to buy its own FTM tokens. Yield farming on Compound and Synthetix were cited as previous plays. [Source: Blockworks]
