Food for Thought

If you don't put in the work, don't expect the results.

- Gary Goodridge

It is a luxury to put our interests first. It is an honor to put the interests of others before our own.

- Simon Sinek

This is your life. You are the only one who decides how it goes. You are the only one who can give yourself the joy, the love, the hope, the money, the experience, and the existence you crave. You are not stuck; you only think you are stuck. You are not broken, you only think you are broken. Everything you judge, everything you see, everything you interpret, everything you fear is all a projection. This is your life, and if you want to change it, the first step is realizing that you had the power all along. The first step is saying: I am willing to see this change.

The second largest in DOJ history shows the difficulty of hiding cryptocurrency.

Hacker took pains to hide $3.36B of stolen bitcoin. Feds found it anyway

Federal prosecutors have recovered $3.36 billion in bitcoin that was stolen a decade ago from Silk Road, the dark web bazaar responsible for distributing massive quantities of illegal drugs and other illicit goods and services to people worldwide.

Last November, federal agents executing a search warrant on a then-defendant’s Gainesville, Georgia, house seized a little more than 50,491 bitcoin that was stashed in an underground floor safe and on a “single-board computer” that was submerged under blankets in a popcorn tin stored in a bathroom closet, the Justice Department said on Monday. During the same search, agents recovered $661,900 in cash, 25 Casascius coins (physical bitcoin) with an approximate value of 174 bitcoin, 11.1160005300044 additional bitcoin, and four one-ounce silver-colored bars, three one-ounce gold-colored bars, four 10-ounce silver-colored bars, and one gold-colored coin.

RS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Tyler Hatcher said that once Zhong completed the heist, “he attempted to hide his spoils through a series of complex transactions which he hoped would be enhanced as he hid behind the mystery of the ‘darknet.’” In reality, the bitcoin blockchain provides a history of every single transaction, which forensic investigators can use to trace stolen coins even when they pass through tumblers and other tools designed to obscure their origins.

The $3.36 billion belonged to James Zhong, 32, of Gainesville and Athens, Georgia. On Friday, Zhong pled guilty to one count of wire fraud, an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Crypto hits the main stage at Web Summit in front of record crowds

Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon has established itself as the spiritual home of one of the world’s largest technology events. Web Summit has called the Altice Arena home since 2016 and attracted a staggering 71,000 people in the latest edition of the conference.

The effect of the event on the city was palpable. An estimated 540,000 people call Portugal’s captivating, hilly capital home and the influx of attendees from around the globe made for a busy week on its smaller cobbled streets and busier roads. [Source: Cointelegraph]

Updated Ethereum Roadmap Diagram

Previously, the team behind Ethereum announced that after the Merge, there will be four additional upgrades, dubbed Surge, Verge, Purge, and Splurge. However, the newest roadmap includes an additional upgrade, Scourge. The latter is inserted between Surge and Verge. The Ethereum Surge update aims to reach a goal of 100,000 transactions per second through rollups.

Big changes:

  • The Verge is not just about "verkle trees", it's about "verification". Endgame: fully SNARKed ethereum

  • The Scourge(new): ensure reliable and fair credibly neutral transaction inclusion, solve MEV issues

  • Single-slot finality as stage 2 Merge milestone

  • More concrete milestones in every category

  • More explicit role for quantum-proofness as a necessary component of the "endgame" protocol

Blockchain Education

AI Metatrend: Everything is Smart & Embedded with Intelligence

Over the next 10 years, everything around you will become smart. From AI and home automation, home healthcare AI, to AI and retail and AI-enabled supply chain... This Metatrend is enabled by the convergence of 5G networks, embedded sensors, internet of things (IoT), networks, edge-cloud computing, and machine learning systems on the cloud.

The price of specialized machine learning chips is dropping rapidly as global demand increases. At the same time, expanding 5G networks coupled with ever-increasing compute on the cloud means we’re heading towards a future in which all devices in our environment will become connected, intelligent, and interactive.

Your child’s toy remembers his or her face and name. Your kids’ drone safely and diligently follows and captures video of all the children at the birthday party. Sensors embedded in your clothing, furniture, and on your body are constantly monitoring your biometrics, the sound of your cough, the shuffle of your feet, and the tone of your voice to decipher your health and mental state. Appliances respond to voice commands and anticipate your needs. Your environment—lighting levels, music selection, desired temperature—will anticipate your needs, and respond “automagically” to your desires.

When everything is embedded with intelligence, it will impact nearly every industry: from retail and healthcare, to education and transportation networks.

Check out this educational blog to learn more about AI Metatrend and how it is affecting our lives!

Block Busters Tech

"Good Morning. As we prepare for another day of progress towards our goals I want to educate the community on a aspect of our contract that I believe is one of the most innovative features, yet, is often overlooked. Our contract collects these tokens that reflect other tokens. For Example, we collect GLOW & MBUSD. Those tokens reflect in BUSD. This means, the more our contract runs, the more GLOW and MBUSD we collect. Meaning, Overtime we collect BUSD at a faster rate as our bag size grows. That BUSD is converted to BNB when a certain threshold is hit, and then paired with BBTF to add to liquidity. This function happens regardless of volume experienced by BBTF, rather, it leverages the volume of the tokens we hold to create liquidity for our project. You will see this feature become fully operational for the first time in the near future with the nearly $40k its gained."
