Twitter Bots/Fake Accounts
Darren reminded the community to be careful while on Twitter!
"Any time you see these ‘Crypto Pumps’ accounts, block them. They’re clearly bots / fake accounts. Always have the same exact bio. @Twitter please do better monitoring your platform."
Binance CEO CZ warned people on Twitter,
"Google displays phishing sites when users search CMC. This affects users adding smart contract addresses to MetaMask using these phishing sites. We are trying to contact Google for this, and in the meantime alerting users about this through social channels."

Food for Thought
If you want to succeed, stay in shape. If you lose health, nothing else matters. No matter how busy you are, make time to exercise. Every day. Start. Today.
The Navy SEALs have an expression on the topic: 'Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast' Simple and beautiful. You may want to create movement and respond quickly, but always ask: • What would happen if I pressed pause? • What would I do if time weren’t a constraint? Regular slowdowns are also critical to avoiding burnout. Reframe the slowdown as a core part of your daily systems, not a reward for your efforts. You don’t need to “earn” this slowness and recovery—it is an essential part of your ritual that allows you to move fast and thrive.
All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be and work every day towards their distant vision, that goal or purpose. 😏 YOU become what YOU believe 😉 Make someone smile today and as always, #BeKind 💙
It is not the money I am after. It is the freedom. My goal is to live life on my own terms.
Record-breaking Chip Can Transmit Entire Internet's Traffic Per Second
A research article was recently published in the Nature Photonics Journal detailing recent findings of a record-breaking speed internet chip that measured twenty times faster than the network used by NASA!
To give an idea of how fast it measured a typical residential internet speed measures from a few hundred megabits to 1-gigabit per second. This new innovation measured the speed at 1.84-Petabit! One Pbit is equal to a million gigabits!
What's even more impressive is that "this new speed record was set using a single light source and a single optical chip!"
The researchers behind the study express that due to its scalability they can continue to break speed records simply by splitting and then amplifying the frequency comb copies! They claim it could eventually produce speeds of up to 100Pbits per second!!
“The reason for this is that our solution is scalable – both in terms of creating many frequencies and in terms of splitting the frequency comb into many spatial copies and then optically amplifying them, and using them as parallel sources with which we can transmit data. Although the comb copies must be amplified, we do not lose the qualities of the comb, which we utilize for spectrally efficient data transmission.”

Binance’s CZ confirms participating as equity investor in Musk’s Twitter takeover
"Binance confirmed on Friday that it was as an equity investor in billionaire technology entrepreneur Elon Musk's takeover of microblogging service Twitter (TWTR).
'We're excited to be able to help Elon realize a new vision for Twitter,' Binance founder Changpeng 'CZ' Zhao, said in an e-mailed statement. 'We aim to play a role in bringing social media and Web3 together in order to broaden the use and adoption of crypto and blockchain technology.'
CZ said in a tweet that Binance had wired some $500 million as part of the deal two days ago. Twitter did not immediately respond to CoinDesk's request for comment." [Source: Coindesk]
Google launches blockchain node engine for Web3 developers
"According to an October 27th announcement, tech-giant Google is launching an in-house Blockchain Node Engine (BNE) based on Google Cloud. As a node-hosting service, BNE enables Web3 companies to relay transactions, deploy smart contracts, and read or write blockchain data directly on Google Cloud. Ethereum will be the first blockchain supported by BNE.
'Today, manually deploying a node is a time-intensive process that involves provisioning a compute instance, installing an Ethereum client, and waiting for the node to sync with the network. [...] Google Cloud’s BNE can make this process faster and easier by allowing developers to deploy a new node with a single operation and specify the desired region and network.' - Google
The service intends to place nodes behind a virtual private cloud firewall, allowing only trusted machines and users to communicate with endpoints. Additionally, services such as Google Cloud Armor would help protect the nodes from distributed denial-of-service attacks. Being a fully managed solution, BNE will also have its own developer team on-call to monitor for potential outages." [Source: Cointelegraph]
What Crypto Super Bowl Ads Can We Expect in 2023?
"Just like 2022’s NFL season, the crypto bear market — which has lasted much longer — trudges on. And while many have cut costs, not all crypto firms are backing down from spending. Some are even gearing up to dish out millions of dollars on Super Bowl ads to build brand awareness." [Source: Blockworks]
