Man Jailed for 5 Years for Spreading COVID-19

Thursday, September 16, 2021

A court in Vietnam says the man’s actions spread the virus to many people, of whom one died.


A Vietnamese court has sentenced a man to five years in prison after he was accused of violating quarantine rules and spreading COVID-19, showing the extent to which the one-party state will go to enforce health protocols.

After a single-day trial, the court in southern Cà Mau province on Monday convicted defendant Le Van Tri of “spreading dangerous infectious diseases to people” after he was arrested for evading a mandatory 21-day isolation order after traveling from Ho Chi Minh City, according to a report in state-run media.

Tri’s actions led to one person contracting the virus and dying from it, the report alleged.

With some of the strictest pandemic measures in the world, Vietnam had largely controlled the virus until a surge in recent months pushed the death toll to over 13,700.

Its vaccination rates remain low, with only about 3.3 percent of the total population having received two doses. That has left it to rely largely on maintaining tough movement restrictions, and to pass down harsh punishments for anyone who breaks them. Vietnam earlier sentenced two other people to jail for breaking orders to self-isolate, including a flight attendant who had travelled from Japan, Reuters reported.

In July, Tri and his brother-in-law came home to Cà Mau after losing their jobs in Ho Chi Minh City amid the worsening outbreak, according to the media report. Tri then appeared before local government offices to seek unemployment benefits and “make a health declaration.” The next day, authorities ordered Tri to go into medical isolation for 21 days.

“Tri did not comply with the regulations as committed, leading to the spread of COVID-19 to many people,” the report said. He tested positive for COVID-19 on July 7.

“From Tri’s infection chain, one person died,” the report said, adding that “Tri admitted to the whole crime.” Tri had also “made false declarations” about his travel schedule, according to the report, which did not include comments from Tri or his lawyer.

Vietnam on Tuesday reported 14,208 new infections, bringing the overall count to 550,996 as the country battles an unprecedented surge in cases. The delta variant of the coronavirus is causing alarming surges in infections across Southeast Asia, and it caught Vietnam off-guard with its lagging vaccination program.

Of Vietnam’s estimated 98 million people, only 3.44 million have so far been fully vaccinated, according to state media. The latest lockdown has also seen soldiers dispatched to supermarkets to shop for people.

The new wave of infections was a turnaround from how the country performed in the early days of the pandemic, when it was hailed for its largely successful response to the health crisis, although critics pointed out that it was made possible by an authoritarian governing structure.

Vietnam closed its northern border with China in January, even before local transmission of the virus was detected. It closed all its borders as its first few local cases were recorded, and launched an aggressive testing, contact-tracing and isolation program.

Much information about confirmed COVID-19 cases were made available to the public, including on social media, to help contact-tracing—a move that drew some concern and criticism from the public, according to the Asia Foundation.

“In this way, controversial or not, the public has been provided with a significant amount of accurate information that has enabled them to make informed decisions about their health and their movements. In some cases, however, it has also led to the demonization of particular individuals, easily identified by their description,” the group said in a report on its website.

Is it time to reimagine the Olympics?

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

The Summer Olympics are in full swing in Japan. While there will be memorable performances and breakout athletes, the lasting memory of the Tokyo Games will almost certainly be the specter of the coronavirus pandemic hanging over the event.


The Games were supposed to be held last summer, but were delayed by a full year, as the first wave of the virus spread around the world. When cases began to spike in Japan this spring, serious questions were raised about whether the competition should be delayed again or canceled entirely. Organizers were committed to going forward, despite billions of dollars in cost overruns, the lack of spectators and widespread opposition among the Japanese people.

The challenges facing Tokyo 2020 are entirely unique, but just about every modern Olympics has faced unique difficulties. Many have argued over the years that hosting the Games is more of a curse than a blessing. The International Olympic Committee pitches the Olympics as an opportunity for cities to expand their global profile, while making a healthy profit and building facilities that can be used for decades.

In reality, it’s been 37 years since an Olympic host city ended the Games with a budget surplus. According to one analysis, every Olympics since 1996 has gone over budget, sometimes incurring tens of billions of dollars in debt. Hosts are also frequently saddled with the costs of maintaining “white elephant” stadiums that sit empty after the Olympics have ended. The need to create space for these facilities occasionally means that thousands of residents — often in lower-income neighborhoods — are displaced from their homes. The IOC has also courted controversy by granting hosting duties in countries run by authoritarians, like China and Russia.

Why there’s debate

The struggles in Tokyo have revived a debate that happens every two years, over whether major changes are needed in running the Olympics. A good place to start, many argue, is for athletes, host cities and the general public to take power away from the IOC — whose members are frequently accused of using the glory of sports to fuel their greed and corruption. Another common suggestion is for the Olympics to be held in a set location, rather than rotating from place to place. That plan, supporters say, would put an end to the endless cycle of billion-dollar cost overruns that have burdened the Games’ hosts, and would allow the competitors to become the focus of the Games.

Another school of thought argues that the Olympics can’t be fixed and should be abolished entirely. This point of view maintains that reforms, as beneficial as they might sound, are next to impossible, given the powerful interests that are making enormous profits from the current system. Others claim that the Olympics are unnecessary, since global competitions for most sports already exist, without the baggage that comes with the Games.

Although few have positive things to say about the IOC, there are still many people who say that the Olympics are worthwhile as they are. It’s possible, they argue, to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of the athletes without endorsing the corrupt forces that make the Games happen. Others note that change is already in motion. The next two Summer Olympics were awarded to Paris and Los Angeles, two cities that have laid out plans to dramatically lower costs by using existing venues and relying heavily on private funding.

What’s next

Amid debates over the Tokyo Games, more controversy could be in store in the lead-up to the Winter Olympics, which are scheduled to be held in Beijing in February. The United States Olympic Committee is already facing pressure to boycott the Games over the Chinese government’s persecution of Uyghur minorities in northwestern China.

Perspectives

There’s value in pitting the world’s best athletes against each other on a global stage

“I still think I understand the appeal, and even the utility, of having some kind of venue for determining who is the best in the world at given athletic pursuits. That doesn’t obligate anyone who cares not for such things to do so. But a wholesale condemnation of aspiring for athletic excellence seems like an overreaction.” — Jack Butler, National Review

Host nations should take the authority to run the Games as they see fit

“If ever there was a time and place to remember that the IOC is a fake principality, an oft-corrupt cash receptacle for peddlers with pretensions of grandeur, this is it. The IOC has no real powers, other than those temporarily granted by participant countries.” — Sally Jenkins, Washington Post

The Olympics should be abolished

Of course Tokyo 2020, as it’s still officially named, should be canceled. … There's no justification for holding it. But that’s also true of every summer and winter games for decades, and likely will be until the end of time. Cancel the Olympics—for good.” — Nathalie Shure, New Republic

Tokyo may prove to be a positive turning point for the Olympics

“If nothing else, Tokyo 2020 may end up being remembered as the wake-up call everyone needed to realize that major international sporting events have become a little too big, too cash-laden, and too corporate. Perhaps future prospective host cities and nations will look back on these stripped-down Olympics, and their budget of $15.4 billion, and realize that less can sometimes mean more.” — Dan Orlowitz, Philadelphia Inquirer

A single permanent Olympic host should be chosen

“The Olympics were conceived in 1896 as a sporting event, and they’ve become a construction event. We need to return them back, and the way to do that is to find the permanent venue that has the necessary sporting infrastructure, transportation, communications, [and] hospitality infrastructure. It’s doable; it will save economically, it will save environmentally, it will save socially, and it will reestablish the positive imagery around the Olympics.” — Andrew Zimbalist, historian of the Olympics, to Marketplace

Upcoming Olympic Games could be better

“Even if Tokyo’s Olympics turn out to be the debacle residents seem to fear, I don’t think it will necessarily damage the Olympics’ credibility for other potential host cities. Instead, the coming decade will determine whether the event will keep going in the future. Will the Paris Summer Games in 2024, the Milan-Cortina Winter Games in 2026 and the Los Angeles Summer Games in 2028 be success stories? These events promise to be less expensive, as they will make use of venues built for past events, use temporary facilities and integrate long-term local needs into their construction plans.” — Mark Wilson, Conversation

The athletes make the Olympics worthwhile

“The appeal of the Games has never really been the Olympics as an institution; it’s the Olympians themselves. And since I was a kid putting their photos on my walls, the Olympians haven’t really changed. These athletes still showcase extraordinary human achievement from around the world.” — Lindsay Crouse, The New York Times

It’s unfair to use Tokyo as a model of Olympic challenges

“The coronavirus makes comparisons to previous Games all but impossible. The problems facing Tokyo’s Olympic organizers are a combination of the familiar—public opposition, budget overruns, logistical inconveniences, scandals—and the unprecedented hazards of holding an international sporting event amid a global pandemic still very much not under control.” — Matt Alt, New Yorker

Ending country-based competition would excise most of the corruption for the Games

“We’re not suggesting the Olympics should die. … But all the flags and anthems and parade nonsense should go, because they are the gateway drug to all the many layers of corruption, chemical abuse, and self-important suits that have made international sport a graft machine with athletes hanging off the end. It’s the general sleaze of college football, only for everyone in the world.” — Ray Ratto, Defector

Athletes must have more power over how the Olympics function

“Delivering more excellence and less sideshow will probably require giving athletes a bigger voice in how the Olympics are run. The athletes will have to fight for that voice. Nothing happens quickly or by accident in the IOC’s world.” — Ryan Heath, Politico

The IOC must be dissolved

“Sport does offer an extraordinary canvas for the celebration of human possibilities. It is a universal language in a perilously fragmented world. It deserves better than to be captured by the IOC, better than to be drowned in its pieties and bound to its pernicious business model. … The IOC should dissolve itself and its assets be passed to a new democratically constituted body for global sport.” — David Goldblatt, Guardian

Sports would be just fine without the Olympics

“Some leagues have developed distinct world-level competitions on a par with the Olympics. Soccer’s quadrennial World Cup is one example. … What’s more, the proliferation of streaming services and their enormous appetites for programming also should make it easier for niche competitions to find viewers and advertisers. The next Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky will be discovered and showcased without the IOC.” — Pete Sweeney, Reuters

World’s most northern island and climate change’s role in floods

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Tiny island is world’s northernmost


Shifting pack ice has uncovered what is thought to be the world’s most northerly island, off the coast of Greenland. Scientists discovered the island by accident while on an expedition to collect samples on an island called Oodaaq that was previously thought to be Earth’s northernmost piece of land.

The researchers flew by helicopter to where they thought Oodaaq was located, but couldn’t find it. While looking around, they came across another, previously undocumented, island almost 1 kilometre farther north.

The new island measures 60 by 30 metres and has a peak about 3 metres above sea level. There is no vegetation. The surface consists mainly of mud and moraine — rock and soil that is deposited by glaciers.

The researchers want the island to be named Qeqertaq Avannarleq, which means ‘the northernmost island’ in Greenlandic. 

Climate change implicated in deadly floods

Extraordinary downpours such as those responsible for this year’s deadly flooding in Western Europe are becoming more frequent, and more intense, as a result of climate change. That’s the finding of a study by researchers involved in the World Weather Attribution initiative, which assesses whether global warming is a factor in extreme weather events.

Record rainfall caused severe flooding in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in mid-July. The floods damaged the measurement stations that scientists normally use to collect data on water levels, so the study relied on rainfall data to assess the influence of climate change. The researchers poured these data into models that combined historical local weather and rainfall data with climate simulations for the wider region.

The models suggested that human-caused climate change had increased the rainfall intensity of such storms by 3–19%, relative to a pre-industrial climate that was 1.2 ºC cooler than today’s. They also estimated that similar events can now be expected to hit any part of Western Europe about once every 400 years.

The work is described in a preprint on the World Weather Attribution website. It has not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Work can sometimes be challenging but the right people can make your job so much better

Sunday, August 22, 2021

What do you think makes a great coworker? Finish this sentence in the comments below: ‘The best kind of colleague is’ and tag someone you love working with. 

The Best Kind of Colleague EMPATHISES. Empathy is a word that is used often by many people. It's commonly known that empathy is a good thing to have, but it isn't always a priority in people's lives.

Empathy is the ability to understand things from another person's perspective. It's the ability to share someone else's feelings & emotions & understand why they're having those feelings. For many people, a workplace is a place for teamwork. For things that require a group effort, it's extremely important to take the time to relate to colleagues. Even if people are not specifically working on one project, it is still important to get along with fellow workers. Using empathy is a vital part of a smooth working relationship. Without it, it's much easier to fall into disputes & disagreements.

It is also highly important for leadership to use empathy. Leaders who lack empathy are likely to subject their employees to unfair practices. Managers who are without empathy may push employees to work beyond what is healthy & reasonable or may be unduly harsh when an employee makes a mistake.

The best kind of colleague is one who inspires others to be the best version of themselves at work, not just in how he does things but also in how he treats people.

It is not difficult to compile a wishlist of desirable qualities that we would like to see in our colleagues - capable, helpful, understanding, humourous, selfless, etc. - but we also have to ask whether we have those same qualities that our colleagues would hope to see in us.

Only by continuously setting a high bar, inspiring others and striving to improve ourselves can we create a working environment that both our colleagues and we would always enjoy working in.

While major cryptocurrencies continue trading in their range, it’s encouraging to see them in the green after another decrease earlier this week

Monday, July 26, 2021

While major cryptocurrencies continue trading in their range, it’s encouraging to see them in the green after another decrease earlier this week.

On the 21st of July, the long-awaited event featuring known Bitcoin enthusiasts, including Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk, joined Cathy Woods to talk about the digital gold. A few important takeaways from this event.

Elon Musk holding BTC, ETH, and DOGE: the man behind Tesla and SpaceX, shared that he has a diversified portfolio which he doesn’t intend to sell. A quote that will be framed by many in the DOGE army is: “I pump, but I don’t dump.”

Mining going green🌱: While previously explaining the decision to stop accepting Bitcoin payments with its carbon footprint, Elon Musk shared that it seemed that Mining was going more towards renewables and didn’t rule out starting to accept crypto again.

Bitcoin not majorly used by criminals: Chainanalysis, a company focusing on tracking on-chain data, reports that Bitcoin isn’t - as news outlets like to note - used much to finance illicit activities. In fact, most of the Bitcoin activity consists of trading and investing. 

Regardless, if you want to mirror the portfolio of one of the richest men in the world or just diversify with new altcoins, we’ve got you covered. This week we added three new tokens to our exchange.

From crypto trading to defi, the most exciting areas in blockchain fintech development and innovation are attracting serious investments from all industry corners. To introduce more tools and complementary services to the ecosystem, the recipients of these capital allocations are endeavoring to promote greater adoption by removing many existing participation obstacles and taking a more mass-market approach.

Saturday, July 24, 2021

Projects Focused on Usability and User Experience Lead the Charge
Between Atani’s all-in-one trading infrastructure, Enso’s decentralized finance (defi) strategy sharing platform, Don-Key’s social yield-farming initiative, MakiSwap’s AMM for professionals, Sheesha’s Defi mutual fund, The Defiant Defi-driven informational platform, and Consensys’ sizeable cash pile, take a closer look at the impressive fundraising figures that continue to multiply as investor demand spikes.

Defi Portfolios Arrive Just in Time
As defi’s total value locked (TVL) figures continue their upward march after climbing above $50 billion, several outfits are attempting to help bridge the accessibility quandary inhibiting more widespread participation. Among them is Sheesha Finance, a UAE-based organization that has just concluded a $9.44 million capital raise through its unique liquidity generation event (LGE).

Sheesha Finance contributors will receive Liquidity Provision (LP) tokens, which can be staked for the native Sheeshatoken and grant access to valuable Defi projects without requiring direct investment, much like a mutual fund. Accordingly, investors who stake their LP tokens will automatically be eligible for pool rewards and awards in the form of Sheesha tokens while mitigating Defi portfolio risk and concurrently maximizing its potential.

The All-In-One Crypto Trading Ecosystem Closes Another Round
When it comes to resolving the crypto ecosystem’s fragmented approach to services, Atani has stood out for its comprehensive approach to trading and related activities. Fresh off a $6.25 million seed round, which brings its total capital raised to $7 million, Atani is endeavoring to build a more modern, user-friendly cryptocurrency trading platform emblematic of the all-inclusive services offered by online brokers in traditional financial markets.

Through integrations with more than 20 exchanges through API keys in its free non-custodial desktop platform, embedded tax reporting features, and tools like portfolio aggregation, advanced order types, and price alerts, Atani seeks to provide the complete suite of financial services for crypto traders. The latest fundraising will be allocated towards developing premium features like API trading that functions even when a desktop platform is offline.

Defi Traders Join Forces
Given the ever-evolving nature of defi opportunities, specifically for liquidity pooling and yield farming, Enso has set out to simplify the ecosystem for greater trader accessibility. The organization is building a destination for traders to create and find permissionless strategies, creating a capable asset management ecosystem. After raising $5 million from investors, Enso will be allocating these funds towards platform and community development, with plans to roll out the mainnet during the second quarter.

This more social approach to navigating the defi environment will help creators and followers access all manner of profitable Defi activities in a more simplified format. Traders can either invest directly in strategies or leverage the strategy creator’s token. Moreover, traders can build meta strategies, which effectively combine multiple strategies in a diversified manner.

Yield Farming Becomes More Sociable
As it seeks to replicate Etoro’s success in financial markets and cryptocurrency trading, Don-Key is developing its own social approach to yield farming. Following its successful fundraising, which saw the company attract $2.2 million from a consortium of investors, Don-Key intends to break down barriers for yield farmers seeking capital and liquidity providers hunting for opportunities.

The main problem the organization attempts to address is the current degree of stratification that accompanies yield farming. This copy-trading approach will significantly lower entry barriers between the risks, the high capital requirements, and the accompanying skillset needed to maneuver in this tricky area. Additionally, it intends to invite more participation from liquidity providers with substantially less capital while granting farmers the chance to magnify their returns.

DEX Takes the Lead in Enriching the Professional Trading Experience
Among the common complaints centered on the blockchain trading ecosystem, the high degree of fragmentation and absence of more sophisticated tools that professionals are accustomed to employing top the list. To address the latter half of the equation, Huobi Eco Chain’s biggest decentralized exchange (DEX), Makiswap, is expanding its feature set to address professional needs like analytics, advanced order types, and more sophisticated charting.

After concluding a $1.4 million funding round from a group of investors, Makiswap intends to bring more feature-rich functionality to its already popular ecosystem. It is also pursuing greater yield-farming engagement by incentivizing greater adoption amongst its large user community in the Asia-pacific region.

Defi Data and Information Collection Efforts Expand
Just like Bloomberg became the preeminent data provider of the traditional financial services industry, The Defiant is busily positioning itself as the must-have defi informational resource. What started as an industry newsletter in 2019 has quickly snowballed into a defi multimedia powerhouse that is bent on delivering quality, reputable, objective, independent reporting for borrowers, lenders, traders, liquidity providers, and yield farmers.

The $1.4 million pre-seed round raised from a group of investors will ensure that The Defiant can build a comprehensive informational portal that brings trusted data, analysis, and research to defi participants. Funds will be used to construct an accessible data platform and a web3-native media outlet focused on quality content. Together, these efforts will help newcomers gain valuable perspective on the ecosystem while experienced professionals apply its expert-level information and analysis.

Financial Giants Grow Their Exposure to Blockchain’s Prospects
As greater institutional adoption of blockchain takes hold, more traditional financial firms are seeing the writing on the wall and taking note. Big names including JP Morgan, UBS, and Mastercard are voting with their feet following a $65 million investment in Consensys, a blockchain infrastructure development firm.

Consensys, run by Ethereum Co-Founder Joseph Lubin, works to build cryptocurrency’s financial infrastructure through its software development arm. Now, with defi protocols ranking amongst Ethereum’s hottest applications, Consensys is promoting a swift merger of decentralized finance with Web3 applications in an enterprise-grade format. Taken together, this activity fits perfectly with the overall mission of accelerating consumer and enterprise blockchain adoption.

Do you think all this money pouring into crypto trading will lure in the general public? Let us know in the comments section below.

Dubai Government Licensing Entity Now Accepts Bitcoin for Payments

Saturday, July 24, 2021

Kiklabb is a free trade zone that helps companies set up shop in Dubai, a wealthy city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Kiklabb issues trade and other licenses as well as processes visas.

The entity also leases office space to its customers on-board the Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise liner anchored at Port Rashid in Dubai. Payments for these and other services can now be made in bitcoin (BTC), the Gulf News reported on Feb. 16.

Tasawar Ulhaq, chief executive officer of Kiklabb, said the decision was made in response to a “growing interest in cryptocurrency with several customers in blockchain and fintech (financial technology) sectors.”

He noted that crypto-based payments allowed for more accessibility for global entrepreneurs looking to start a business in the UAE. “It really was just a matter of time before we recognized bitcoin, ethereum, and tether. Cryptocurrencies are the payment method of the future,” said Ulhaq.

Kiklabb worked with unnamed “international partners for payment processing of cryptocurrency transactions.” The CEO believes other government departments will follow in his footsteps.

“We’re the first government owned licensing entity in the UAE to accept cryptocurrency payments – and certainly not the last. With the technology rapidly gaining traction across the Middle East, I’m eager to see how it changes the way we do business in the near future,” Ulhaq stated.

The UAE is planning to use blockchain technology for 50% of government transactions this year. The Dubai Future Foundation estimates that the country could save more than $3 billion through blockchain and cryptocurrency use, per the Gulf News report.

The SuperRare curation token
We’re putting the future of SuperRare and the power of curation directly into the hands of our stellar community. With $RARE, you have influence over the diversification of our thriving, global art ecosystem–from the streets of Soho to the hidden realms of the metaverse. Welcome to SuperRare 2.0.

The SuperRare DAO: powered by community
A new DAO comprised of $RARE token holders will help define the future of art and culture for a digitally native generation. Membership in the SuperRare DAO allows you to curate the platform, control marketplace parameters, and add your voice to one of the most ambitious art projects in the world today.

A next generation NFT Platform
CryptoArt to date has evolved around centrally curated platforms with a single minting contract. While this was an important step in the evolution of the industry, we're excited to usher in a new era that empowers more diverse curatorial voices. SuperRare Spaces are independently curated storefronts designed to help promote artists and create a diverse art ecosystem. Each Space is vetted and elected by the SuperRare community.

Rise of the sovereign artist
The future of the web belongs to creators. We've always believed artists are sovereign actors who should be able to control their own destiny. By enabling artists to mint custom contracts that reflect their own unique project themes or artistic brand, we hope many more will take the leap and become true sovereigns in every sense.

$RAREdrop
15% of the total $RARE supply to the community of artists and collectors who bootstrapped SuperRare into the platform it is today. If you've been an artist or a collector on SuperRare, today is your day to own a part of the network & begin shaping the future of digital art. Airdrop tokens will be claimable here for the next 90 days, after which unclaimed tokens will be donated back to the SuperRare DAO treasury.

Major Accusations of NFT Insider Trading

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Major Accusations of NFT Insider Trading
Crypto twitter was rocked with damning news of NFT insider trading late Tuesday evening. It was uncovered that the Head of Product at Opensea, @NateChastain, has allegedly been purchasing NFTs that they knew were going to be featured on the front page, and selling them for a quick profit. The paper trail of evidence that consolidated on Twitter by user ZuwuTV, which showed Etherscan transactions that tied those NFT sales directly to the wallet of the Opensea executive. Lack of oversight and regulation in the still nascent NFT industry allow for unfortunate scheming like this from happening. Opensea’s PR team released a statement early Wednesday morning, condemning the deceptive trading and announcing new policies to prohibit such behavior in the near future. “We’re committed to doing the right thing for our users and earning back the trust of the community we serve.”

Solana: The Rise and Fall?
Solana’s main net unexpectedly shut down for more than half a day starting early on Tuesday morning. Solana’s developers scrambled to fix the network error, resulting in the entire server getting completely shut down and rebooted. According to an announcement made on the Solana twitter, “Solana Mainnet Beta encountered a large increase in transaction load which peaked at 400,000 TPS. These transactions flooded the transaction processing queue, and lack of prioritization of network-critical messaging caused the network to start forking” - Full functionality had been restored to the network as of early Wednesday morning. The PoH blockchain came roaring through the cryptospace recently thanks to the re-eruption of NFTs and the need for infrastructure to support them, which caused a major price surge for the SOL token to $211+ just one week ago. This unexpected server shutdown was a major reality check for investors, and the resulting sell off led to the price tumbling down to $149 on Tuesday. That being said, investors haven’t completely lost faith in the NFT marketplace just yet, and this recent fumble doesn’t completely overshadow SOL’s exceptional rise to the top.

Bridging the Gap Between CeFi and DeFi
In Nexus specific news, a revolutionary partnership between Alkemi Network and Nexus has emerged to allow retail and institutional users to earn yield on DeFi. Nexus, a crypto liquidity exchange with borrowing and lending vaults, announced their integration with Alkemi Network early last week, that not only supports Alkemi as a whole, but allows users to earn ALK tokens, which will be formally launched during the Alkemi TGE. ALK yields will be automatically airdropped to participants in the middle of October.

ETH Gas Fees Continue to Hamstring DeFi Network

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Despite major development and upgrades to its network recently with EIP-1559 and the release of smart-contract solution Arbitrum, Ethereum still seems to be struggling to handle network congestion and bloated gas fees, leaving many DeFi users struggling to keep up with the associated costs. With the recent comeback of NFT hype and the huge demand that moving NFT’s put on the network’s capabilities, ETH’s gas fees have gotten exceptionally burdensome: Since the London Hard Fork and EIP-1559, fees have risen to an average of over $30 per transaction. This number may seem manageable, but when accounting for the often inflated costs of using decentralized exchanges and NFT marketplaces, these gas fees can become wicked: Users of OpeanSea reported gas fees commonly topping $1,000 to process a transaction. The ETH network’s continuous struggle to handle the influx of attention its enjoyed has boiled over into other crypto ecosystems, with the likes of Solana seeing major upward movement and development in recent weeks. As ETH still dominates the DeFi universe, we’ll have to hold on tight and hope that future improvements to the network fix these continuous issues problems that have plagued it in the past.

September Blues: Rocky Roads Ahead?
September has historically been a bearish month in the world of crypto. Despite some upward market movement we saw earlier in the month, this September of 2021 seems to hold true to the pattern of the past. BTC tumbled 8.5% on Monday, along with other blue-chip coins dropping significantly in value before stabilizing later in the week. Much of the downward movement seen by markets across the world can be attributed to news of Chinese real estate group Evergrande revealing that it may default on its massive $300 billion of debt: The CCP announced Wednesday that they will be handling a major restructuring of Evergrande similar to how the single-party state handled the ongoing breakup of Jack Ma’s Ant Group earlier in the year. Although we’ve seen mainly sideways and downward movement throughout the middle of this month, let’s hope the crypto markets follow the patterns of years past and exceed our expectations as we head into the new year.

Polkadot Parachains Please!
The multi-blockchain and Web3 protocol Polkadot has been hinting at the upcoming release of parachains to its network recently. The implementation of parachains to its test network Kusama (KSM) were a huge success, with parachain apps such as Moonriver - A smart-contract Ethereum bridge - Seeing major success and upward spikes in value since launching. The first five parachains that launched on the Kusama test network saw 10% of the total supply of KSM being bonded, and more parachain slots opening on the test network are fueling the hype for Polkadot to adopt the flagship system that it has tirelessly been developing. DOT’s lead developer, Gavin Wood - Co-founder of Ethereum - Has been hinting in recent press released that the network will soon be launching parachains, and not a moment too soon: The competition for alternative ecosystems to Ethereum has become increasingly cut-throat, and Polkadot will need to exceed expectations to maintain its position as a leading DeFi network.

Undaunted by Bitcoin flash crash, crypto bulls say 'the greatest time' to invest is now

Friday, September 17, 2021

This week's "flash crash" that dragged bitcoin (BTC-USD) back below $50,000 — and sent other digital coins reeling in its wake — marred what should have been the momentous occasion of the first sovereign country on earth adopting a cryptocurrency as legal tender. 


Despite the ugly price action, most of crypto's true believers are still just that — even as some observers question bitcoin's head-spinning volatility, and El Salvador's decision to throw its weight behind it. 

Michael Sonnenshein, CEO of Grayscale Investments, the world's largest cryptocurrency fund manager by assets, who told Yahoo Finance Live this week that other countries are likely to join El Salvador in the race to make crypto legal tender.

And Matt Hougan, CIO of Bitwise, also told Yahoo Finance Live that “it’s the greatest time, I think, to enter the crypto market. A lot of the first decade of crypto was about zero to one. … Now the question is how fast we scale from one to 100. A lot of that is built on what regulatory clarity we get.”

To be sure, it's been a rocky week for digital currencies like bitcoin — which traded above $52,000 on Monday but hovered near $45,000 on Friday — as well as ethereum (ETH-USD) and Cardano (ADA-USD). However, from peak to trough, the latter two didn't lose nearly as much as bitcoin, which suffered offshore outflows upwards of $3 billion during Tuesday's selloff, according to one investor.

On the other hand, the price of cryptocurrency (SOL1-USD), which power the Solana blockchain, is already above its pre-flash crash highs, trading above $175 on Friday. 

Anatomy of a 'telltale' crypto crash

In an interview with Yahoo Finance, Jeff Sekinger, a financial guru, founder of the Miami-based crypto hedge fund Orca Capital, said he believes overall crypto market will likely see a lot of growth through the end of this year, despite this week's rout.

Like the week of Coinbase’s initial public offering, this week began with another major market event — El Salvador’s new Bitcoin Law, which was expected to be a boon to the industry.

Sekinger has witnessed his share of crypto market cycles. He first purchased bitcoin in college in 2013, and the 2017 bull market convinced him to leave his job at JPMorgan Chase to focus on the asset class full-time. He started Orca Capital in April two years later.

Breaking down trading volume, open interest levels and on-chain analysis, Sekinger actually called this week’s flash crash in a Youtube video he published on August 31. He told Yahoo Finance it came down to volume and three major upward trends.

“When the perpetual funding, opening interest and price action are all moving up but volume is slowing, it's been a telltale sign for the past three major crashes,” Sekinger told Yahoo Finance.

This time, the downturn came from the combination of high leverage in the markets on top of cryptocurrency traders “buying the rumor and selling the news,” he said. That was proof enough that the market is still relatively small — and still heavily manipulated by a few big players, according to Sekinger. 

Acknowledging that market cycles are notoriously difficult to predict, Sekinger said the current bull market in crypto will likely end in the first or second quarter of next year.

“There will be too much euphoria and too much leverage and everything will come crashing down. Because we are starting to see serious money within the space, I think in terms of a percentage correction, it will be less,” said Sekinger.

Currently, Orca has two funds that each hold about 10 to 15 different assets that cumulatively hold $50 million under management today, with 167 limited partners. Since Orca started, both funds have outperformed bitcoin while one doubled the cryptocurrency's return in the last year.

Within two months, Orca will rollout two more funds — including a more aggressive decentralized finance (DeFi)-focused fund. These additions should double their total asset value under management, Sekinger said.

"Retail investors see all these crazy stories about the ridiculous amount of money being made on NFTs and that sparks their interest.

- Jeff Sekinger, crypto portfolio manager

In terms of leverage, Sekinger said that his funds can lever up to 5 percent of their value, but that they never have had a desire to go close to 5 percent, and typically use it at the most “two to three times per year in small quantities.”

Orca’s future offerings come from retail demand for nonfungible token (NFT)-related investment, according to Sekinger — something he connected to solana's skyrocketing growth over the summer. 

“One of the reasons why SOL is blowing up is because a ton of NFTs are moving from Ethereum to Solana because it's so much less expensive to launch, buy and sell on the Solana blockchain,” said Sekinger. 

Retail investors "see all these crazy stories about the ridiculous amount of money being made on NFTs and that sparks their interest,” he said.

In light of the wellspring of investment brought into the crypto market by NFTs, investor interest in blockchains with higher transaction speed has quickly dominated price action. 

Since its London hardfork update, the Ethereum blockchain is said to perform 15 transactions per second but reports of high fees due to network congestion have sent traders reeling.

Based on tests, Cardano is said to do 257 transactions per second and potentially much more with upgrades while Solana can complete 50,000 transactions per second.

How to manage your wallet like a pro - by William M. Peaster - Bankless

Friday, September 17, 2021

How to manage your wallet like a pro

The best way to setup your Ethereum wallets plus a couple pro tips!

Dear Bankless Nation,

Getting a crypto wallet is an important step on the bankless journey.

Keeping your crypto money on centralized exchanges like Gemini and Coinbase is fine to start…but it’s not bankless. Not your keys, not your crypto.

Taking custody of your crypto isn’t for everyone. With non-custodial wallets, you’re liable for holding and preserving your crypto wealth. If you lose access…it’s gone.

But for those ready to make the leap, this step unlocks a world of opportunity. With a crypto wallet, you get to directly interact with Ethereum and tap into its potential:

Collect the next big NFT

Earn DeFi yields that dwarf anything found in traditional finance

Dive into the future of work by joining a DAO.

A non-custodial crypto wallet is your key to access these opportunities.

So how do you get started? What are the best wallets out there? And what’s the best way to track and manage your portfolio once you’ve got your wallet?

That’s our topic for today.

Let’s dive in.

- RSA



An Ethereum wallet lets you access and manage an Ethereum account, serving as the gateway to bankless financial services with DeFi, the culture legos of NFTs, on-chain identity management for DAOs, and beyond. 

As such, the way you set up your wallet(s) will shape your experiences around the crypto economy. This tactic will show you how to manage your Ethereum wallet flow like a pro using today’s top wallets, highlighting useful features, and other key considerations. 

Goal: Review how to skillfully manage your Ethereum wallets

Skill: Easy

Effort: 30 minutes 

ROI: Ideas for improving your wallet management practices!


Choosing the right wallet flow for you

As the silly old pun goes: a dumb empty wallet lacks cents. Yet today we’ll be exploring how to smarten up and bring sense to our Ethereum wallet management practices so we can surf Web3’s rising waves like pros. 

Of course, there’s no singular “right way” to set up these management practices. You can use multiple wallets and services in combination, and in fact, many people do because of the added security and UX advantages such combos provide.  

Moreover, Ethereum’s wallet ecosystem has never been more diverse than it is today, so crypto veterans and newcomers alike can feel lost when it comes to settling on the optimal wallet setup.

The name of the game is developing the flow that you prefer most and that works best for you. However, your foundational priority out of the gate should be safety (i.e. how to create the foundation of your wallet system as securely as possible)!  

Safety first!
Since your wallet flow can rely on multiple wallets and services simultaneously, it’s important to make the core of your setup as secure as possible. Doing so will ensure your wider wallet system will be durable and accessible for years to come. 

That said, the three main foundations to consider here include hardware wallets, multi-signature wallets, and social recovery wallets. 

1) Hardware Wallets

Hardware wallets like the Ledger Nano X and the GridPlus Lattice1 are specialized devices offering “cold storage” for users to secure their crypto. These wallets keep your private keys underpinning your crypto offline at all times, ensuring that a hacker can’t easily sweep your funds from your computer or phone.

Hardware wallets can also be used in tandem with other wallet services, e.g. the MetaMask browser extension, for improved and streamlined UX when interacting with the Ethereum network.

2) Multi-Sig Wallets

Multi-signature or “Multi-sig” wallets are a more advanced, secure wallet as they require a minimum number of addresses to approve transactions, e.g. 2 of 3, 4 of 7, and so forth.

Such “multisig” systems are ideal for groups, whether they be businesses or DAOs, and individuals who want superior security since these special smart contract wallets require multiple sign-offs. Moreover, multisig solutions like Gnosis Safe make it easy for individuals to customize their wallet parameters daily spending limits. 

3) Social Recovery Wallets

By now you’ve probably heard a few painful stories about people who have lost access to old crypto wallets over the years.

Social recovery wallets, which Ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin is a big advocate for, are a practical answer to this accessibility problem. 

These sorts of wallets would have a single signing key, which is what a user would use to send transactions and interact with dApps. However, underpinning this signing key are multiple “guardians,” meaning other Ethereum addresses. These could be maintained by family or friends, or even your other wallets. With social recovery, if enough of these guardians approve, a user’s signing key can be updated if they were to ever lose or forget how to access their original key.

DeFi and NFT portfolio managers

Once you have the foundation of your wallet system set up, you can consider plugging your new wallet or wallets into a portfolio management dashboard. Just search for your address or connect your wallet and then these services offer simple one-stop hubs for visualizing and managing all your DeFi and NFT activities.

Some strong contenders here include:

 Zapper — A portfolio management dashboard that lets you track multiple addresses simultaneously and trade and invest in top DeFi opportunities through an easy-to-use UI. 

 Zerion — Similar to Zapper, Zerion is user-friendly and one-stop wallet management suite for easily staying on top of all your Web3 activities. 

 NFTBank — NFTBank is a portfolio management dashboard that caters specifically to NFT users, from novices and power users!


Wallet Management Pro Tips

1. Use smart contract wallets for advanced actions

A basic Ethereum address is limited in what it can do. However, when you turn an Ethereum address into a smart contract itself, that address’s capabilities become considerably more advanced and varied. 

Accordingly, two projects that make you spin up smart contract wallets to interact with them include Instadapp and DeFi Saver. Per this wallet model, these DeFi management protocols make it easy to perform advanced on-chain activities, e.g. merging two Maker Vaults in a matter of just a few clicks. 

2. Browser & mobile wallets = good for dapps

Two of the easiest ways to interact with dapps are browser wallets and mobile wallets. 

By browser wallet, I mean an extension you download for web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Brave that lets you perform wallet actions (even ones linked to a hardware wallet!) right in-browser. MetaMask is the most popular provider in this arena, but other notable projects include WalletConnect and the Coinbase Wallet extension. 

Additionally, both MetaMask and Coinbase Wallet have mobile apps that smartphone and tablet users can download.

These apps come with “dapp browsers” that can be used to interact directly and on-the-go with popular DeFi and NFT projects like Compound and OpenSea. Other rising stars in Ethereum’s mobile app ecosystem currently include Dharma, Rainbow, and Argent (the previously mentioned social recovery wallet).  


 The Big (On-Chain) Picture

Once you have your wallet flow how you like it, consider setting up an Ethereum Name Service (ENS) username for your main address to create your Ethereum profile and thereafter start developing your on-chain resume for the future. 

Also, remember there’s no single “right way” to set up your wallet flow; maybe you prefer GridPlus over Ledger, Zerion over Zapper, or Rainbow over Argent.

That’s all perfectly fine: do what suits your tastes. The ultimate goal is to create your wallet flow as intentionally and securely as possible so that you can make the most of it over the long run!

Most Institutional Investors Expect to Increase Crypto Exposure by 2023

Sunday, October 17, 2021

A survey found that 82% of institutional investors expect to increase their exposure to crypto and digital assets by 2023.

The study by Nickel Digital Asset Management surveyed institutional investors and wealth managers from the U.S, U.K., France, Germany and the UAE, Institutional Asset Manager reported. Nickel Digital Asset Management did not say how many institutional investors were surveyed. Additionally, four out of 10 respondents said they would increase their crypto holdings dramatically, with fewer than one in 10 saying they would reduce their exposure.

Among reasons for increasing exposure, 58% cited the long-term capital growth prospects of crypto and digital assets. Over a third of respondents said it was because of either feeling more comfortable with the asset class (38%) or the improving regulatory environment (34%).

A recent example of the latter was a new law in Germany permitting "special funds" – the dominant institutional investment vehicle in the country – to hold up to 20% of their portfolios in crypto. Some estimates suggested as much as $415 billion could flow into the space should every fund allocate their maximum quota to crypto.

You can use these channels to get your messages to as many people as possible. Using emails and apps, you can choose who gets which message and when. So when you want to reward regular customers or gather feedback, an app or an email will do the job. A map could help new customers find your business.

Search engine marketing (SEM) is different to search engine optimisation (SEO). In SEM, the business pays to enter an auction. They then bid for advertising space on a website, and whoever wins gets to show their search ad. Tagging keywords within your content could increase the chance of your website appearing higher up in search engine rankings. This is called search engine optimisation (SEO) and is a free way for Hamish to reach more potential customers. 

Analytics can tell you a lot of things about how people interact with his website, like which parts are popular and where the user is coming from. But without asking the user, analytics can't find out if there is anything specific they don't like.

Using this data, users can draw conclusions and then adapt his approach. For example, if lots of people access his site from a mobile device, he could make sure his website is responsive, or launch mobile-friendly display ads.

From websites to local listings, mobile apps to social media, there are lots of ways to be found online. If a website is the best fit for your goals, you'll need to have a basic grasp of how they work. Even more importantly, having design and usability best practices under your belt will help you build a website that tells your story well, and allow your customers to find what they need.

Brave Swap Rewards Program

Friday, September 17, 2021

With the upcoming release of the new Brave Wallet, we will be launching the Brave Swap Rewards Program, a new program that will allow swap users to recoup 20% of their swap fees. This post will describe this program, and the current plans for how we intend to implement it. 


We recently announced the introduction of Brave Swap in the current Brave Crypto Wallet, an important milestone from the BAT Roadmap 2.0. The upcoming release of the new unified Brave Wallet for desktop and mobile will provide millions of people with an introduction and access to web3, emerging financial protocols, and new Brave Rewards.

Brave Rewards will be integrated into the Brave Wallet, providing users with options to modify their Rewards experience, new views into their earned and contributed BAT for the current month, and access to statements from previous months.

 

Program overview

Similar to MetaMask and other DEX swap service providers, Brave receives a small percentage of each Brave Swap as a fee for providing the service. We will allocate up to 20% of each month’s total Brave Swap fees to the Swap Rewards Program. 

Brave Swap users who are opted into Brave Rewards will receive a monthly rebate for 20% of their Swap transaction fees, in the form of BAT. 

Opting into Brave Rewards also enables Brave Ads by default, providing the ability to earn additional BAT while browsing the web.

 

Swap Rewards distribution

Brave will fund the Swap Rewards Program from up to 20% of the total monthly Brave Swap revenue. Brave will from time to time purchase BAT with USD equal to 20% of the swap fees from the many tokens and coins we receive each month for use in the program. The BAT purchases made by Brave will be added to a Swap Rewards section in the Brave Transparency Report.

Users participating in the Brave Swap Rewards program will receive a rebate equal to 20% of their fees collected from their Brave Swap transactions.

Swap Rewards users that have not verified their Rewards wallet with a partner wallet service (like Uphold, Gemini, etc.) will be eligible to claim virtual BAT for their monthly Swap Rewards to use within the Brave Rewards ecosystem.

Rebates for Swap Rewards users that have verified their Brave Rewards wallet will receive their BAT rebates as direct deposits into their verified Rewards wallet.

The Brave Swap Rewards Program will be subject to important terms and conditions that will be found in our terms of service on brave.com once the program launches.


Conclusion

Participants in the Swap Rewards Program earn BAT both from the Rewards private ads system and via the Swap Rewards rebate that effectively reduces swap fees.

We’re excited to introduce additional opportunities to earn BAT through the Brave Swap Rewards Program. We plan on providing further updates about the Program start date as we prepare the new Brave Wallet release, and appreciate and look forward to engaging and receiving feedback from the Brave and BAT Community.

What it was like inside Microsoft during the worst cyberattack in history

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Microsoft president Brad Smith describes the chaos inside the tech giant during the SolarWinds hack.


While the KGB may have collapsed with the Soviet Union in 1991, its long shadow still quietly serves its homeland through new 21st­-century digital forms and tactics, especially in cyberspace.

When the Communist Bloc splintered, so did the KGB. Two new agencies were born: the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation (SVR), a spy agency tasked with gathering intelligence, and the enforcement arm, the Federal Security Service (FSB), which is charged with security. Both conduct espionage and counter­intelligence.

In the waning months of 2020—a particularly arduous and painful year for the entire world—the SVR threw a wet blanket on an already dampened holiday. Headquartered in a sprawling office complex in southwest Moscow, its buildings from the outside look like a typical modern office park in the suburbs. A close equivalent to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) the SVR manages from these buildings its global espionage and external counterintelligence operations, including electronic surveillance in countries around the world. These days, this includes a wide variety of cyber activities. And not unlike the tech companies in similarly sprawling campuses across the United States that employ our best and brightest technology minds, the SVR has a large and experienced staff of talented cyber professionals.

Inside Microsoft we use obscure elements from the periodic table to classify and code­-name different nation­-state actors that are engaged in cyber activity. Within our own cybersecurity ranks, the SVR is called Yttrium, a metallic rare-­earth and toxic mineral found in the Earth’s crust.

Yttrium is one of the most sophisticated cyberthreats for many of our customers, as well as for Microsoft itself. And instead of conducting its clandestine efforts in back rooms and through dead drops, this 21­st-century successor to the KBG often does its work by penetrating computer networks owned by private enterprises and citizens around the world.

WHY THE SOLARWINDS ATTACK WAS SO DEVASTATING

Yttrium’s latest threat hit my radar in the form of an instant message on the last day of November 2020, asking if I had “five minutes for something kind of urgent.” The message came from Tom Burt, our vice president responsible for a wide range of cybersecurity issues. I knew from more than two decades of working with Tom that he was typically calm and understated, two key qualities when dealing with crises. I knew that Tom’s “kind of urgent” was likely an alarm bell.

I quickly ended a meeting to talk with Tom. He reported that we had been approached by FireEye, one of the leading cybersecurity firms, for help with what looked like a serious cybersecurity breach it had suffered. As Tom explained, the early indicators pointed to Yttrium, a finding later confirmed by the White House.

In the coming weeks, this initial report would lead cybersecurity experts to pursue a digital trail that uncovered the attempted hacking of dozens of sensitive computer networks around the world, including Microsoft itself. By January 2021, The New York Times reported that “the U.S. government was clearly the main focus of the attack, with the Treasury Department, the State Department, the Commerce Department, the Energy Department, and parts of the Pentagon among the agencies confirmed to have been infiltrated.” But those weren’t the only targets. At Microsoft we identified dozens of impacted organizations, including other tech companies, government contractors, think tanks, and a university. The impacted countries spilled beyond the United States to include Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates. In several instances, the network penetrations had lasted for several months.

The attack quickly became the broadest confirmed penetration of U.S. government and tech sector computer networks. While cybersecurity experts would give the attack a variety of names, including Solorigate and Sunburst, the public would mostly read about it with reference to the Texas company whose software was hijacked to stage the initial attacks—SolarWinds.

But what to make of all this? Was it, as some on Capitol Hill suggested, a Russian “act of war” or a “digital Pearl Harbor”? Or was it just “espionage as usual,” as some in the intelligence community countered. In my view, it was neither.

Its importance is difficult to overstate. The cyberattack provided a “moment of reckoning” that demonstrated technology’s inherent strengths and weaknesses and illustrated the degree to which it had become both a defensive tool and an offensive weapon. And perhaps more than anything, it showed the world how much work we must do to manage all the implications of inventions that are remaking the century in which we live.

But all this requires putting things in perspective. Even before the attacker’s identity was apparent, anything that potentially involved FireEye was a big deal. FireEye is one of the world’s most sophisticated cybersecurity firms. Its CEO, Kevin Mandia, is one of the country’s leading cybersecurity experts, having started his career as a computer security officer in the Air Force before founding his own security company that FireEye eventually acquired. If this leading security company had been penetrated, it almost certainly took an incredibly sophisticated attack. And if the SVR had made it through FireEye’s defenses, it likely was succeeding elsewhere.


RESPONDING TO THE ATTACK

Yttrium had long represented an important area of focus for the engineers at the Microsoft Threat Intelligence Center, which we call MSTIC (pronounced “mystic”). An elite unit itself, MSTIC constantly focuses on identifying and combating emerging cybersecurity threats. It relies on a combination of the world’s best technology and engineers to sift through the 6 trillion electronic signals that flow into our data centers every day. It’s a combination that places MSTIC in the top tier of a cybersecurity ecosystem responsible for protecting the security of not just Microsoft’s network but the company’s government and business customers and much of the world’s critical infrastructure.

For centuries, governments have engaged in espionage and counterintelligence operations. One of the unusual hallmarks of our digital era is that much of this daily fencing today also involves tech companies. It’s MSTIC’s job to hunt for new intrusions and cyberattacks from Yttrium and other nation-­state actors. Yttrium also occupies a particularly significant position at the top of the cybersecurity arena. Long known not just for technical sophistication but operational persistence, Yttrium has succeeded in a way that few can match in penetrating sophisticated computer networks and operating undetected for prolonged periods of time.

One challenge was that Yttrium had become more difficult to track. As 2020 was winding down, however, it appeared that Yttrium had reemerged with renewed fervor. If Yttrium had broken into FireEye and elsewhere, it would be important to push the intruders out of the affected networks before they could extract more information. And we wanted MSTIC to learn as much as it could about Yttrium’s new methods before it covered its tracks. One of the ironies of this type of cyberattack was that it represented both a successful espionage coup for an attacker and, once identified, a new opportunity for a defender to spot tactics, techniques, and procedures that could help identify and thwart other ongoing or future attacks.

One key was to move fast and with as many responders as possible. Microsoft’s Security Response Center (MSRC) quickly activated its incident response plan. The MSRC is part of Microsoft’s Cyber Defense Operations Center, where a team works 24/­7 and can call on security professionals, data scientists, product engineers, and customer support experts throughout the company to respond rapidly to security threats.

Once we started to work with FireEye, it was clear that this was not a typical case of a sophisticated attacker breaking into just a few computer networks. The attackers had installed a small piece of malware into the update code of a network management program called Orion, a product of SolarWinds. The Orion software was used by roughly 38,000 enterprise customers around the world. When customers installed the update on their on-­premise servers, the malware installed as well. As FireEye reported, the malware would connect to what is known as a command­-and­-control (C2) server. The C2 server could then give the connected computer “jobs” that included the ability to transfer files, execute commands, profile a system, reboot a machine, and disable system services. This meant the attackers suddenly had a backdoor into the network of every customer that had updated the Orion program.

This approach put at risk the software supply chain across the economy and around the world. The immediate questions became: How many enterprises had installed the Orion update, and hence the malware, on their networks? And how quickly could this backdoor be closed?

At Microsoft we quickly mobilized more than 500 employees to work full­ time on every aspect of the attack. Other tech companies scrambled into action as well. Given the potential breadth of the incident, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella convened a meeting each evening of our most senior security leaders to run through the day’s work, what we had learned, and what we needed to do next.

It didn’t take long to appreciate the importance of effective technical teamwork across the industry and with the U.S. government. Engineers at SolarWinds, FireEye, and Microsoft immediately began working together. The teams at FireEye and Microsoft knew each other well, but SolarWinds was a smaller company dealing with a huge crisis, and the teams had to build trust quickly if they were to be effective. The SolarWinds engineers shared the source code for their update with the security teams at the other two companies, which revealed the source code of the malware itself. The technical teams in the U.S. government swung into fast action, especially at the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) at the Department of Homeland Security.

The digital nature of software and the global reach of the internet quickly came into play. Like a pendulum, they swing in both directions. The attackers had turned code into a weapon that was distributed globally through the internet via the SolarWinds update. But with the source code for the specific malware identified, we had a signature, like a digital fingerprint, that we could look for on desktop and server computers. FireEye published this signature for organizations around the world to access.

At Microsoft, we added this signature in an update to our Windows Defender Antivirus program, which customers use to monitor, identify, and remove malware across an organization’s network and computers.

Many customers also share their Defender data with us, which provides an ongoing picture of where specific malware is installed. Within 48 hours we created a map of the world that lit up every location where SolarWinds’ Orion program had been updated with the malware. The map revealed the broad vulnerability around the world and especially in the United States.

The teams at FireEye and Microsoft worked a bit like 21st­-century counterparts to Sherlock Holmes. Each day they added digital clues that could be used to uncover Yttrium’s trail. And with each step they took, they picked up more information to uncover Yttrium’s bad acts and how we might thwart them.

Each evening, John Lambert, MSTIC’s leader, reported on the day’s findings. As he explained, the defensive response to a successful cyberattack always needs to answer two initial questions: How did the attacker gain entry, and what network credentials did the attacker obtain? Until we had the answers to both questions, there was no way we could push the attackers out of the affected networks.


THROUGH THE BACKDOOR

As the security teams studied the infection, they discovered that the malware in the Orion software initially created a backdoor in a company’s network but otherwise lay dormant for two weeks, so as not to create any network log entries that would call attention to it­self. It then reported information about the network it had infected to a command­-and­-control server that the attackers had registered and was being hosted in the United States by the tech firm Go­Daddy.

If a target network was of interest to Yttrium, the attackers then took a second step. They entered through the backdoor and installed additional code on the organization’s server, in effect opening a window to connect to a second command-­and­-control server. This second server, unique to each victim to help evade detection, was registered and hosted in a second data center, often on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud. As John Lambert explained, Yttrium carefully “cleaned up after itself,” closing the backdoor to GoDaddy and using the open window connecting to a service such as AWS instead. As we identified the customers impacted by these second-­stage attacks, teams of specialized Microsoft engineers—our cybersecurity hunters—worked to help customers search for and close these windows.

As the security teams at FireEye and Microsoft studied the source code shared by SolarWinds, they discovered that the code installed on the initial command-­and­-control server at GoDaddy had a “kill switch” that would automatically shut off the malware on an organization’s server under specific conditions. Armed with this knowledge, the security teams worked together to transfer control of the C2 server from GoDaddy to Microsoft, activate the kill switch to turn off any ongoing or new uses of the malware, and identify any organizations that had computers that continued to ask the server for instructions.

This effectively stopped the attackers from using their malware to enter additional networks. While this type of action often marks the climax of cyber battles, in this case the attackers’ technical sophistication meant that it was just the start of some of the most frenetic work. Because Yttrium had already entered multiple networks and opened new windows, we still needed to identify additional impacted networks, learn what Yttrium was doing inside them, find and close the open windows, and force out the attackers.

As the hunting teams pursued Yttrium, they learned that the attackers typically looked for new ways to drill deeper into the impacted networks. Like intruders inside a house, they turned off the equivalent of any security cameras, such as event logging tools and in some cases antivirus software.

They then began scanning the network for the software keys that would give them access to the home’s most precious possessions. Most often, the attackers looked for the accounts of network administrators who had elevated privileges, meaning access to information across an organization’s network.

They then looked for the passwords for these accounts, which unfortunately some customers had stored in an insecure way that was easy for the attackers to find.

With password in hand, the attackers could move from a server located on premises, such as in an organization’s server room, to its other network assets, including in the cloud. Yttrium typically looked for information that would advance its espionage efforts, including an organization’s email, documents, and other digital assets such as source code or the tools that security experts use to identify and combat potential network intrusions. For some organizations, this included emails and documents in Microsoft’s Office 365 cloud service.

Once MSTIC identified the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by the attackers as they accessed Office 365, our threat hunters could scan our cloud services to identify the telltale patterns that a customer had been compromised. Using this method, we identified 60 customers that had been victimized by the attacks.


DIGITAL FIRST RESPONDERS

This led to the next phase of our response, as security experts worked as digital first responders to help the victims. Microsoft employees notified each of these 60 customers and offered information about the attack and the technical indicators we had identified that would help them start their own investigations.

Given the importance of the SolarWinds intrusions, the responsibility for our largest enterprise customer notifications fell on Ann Johnson, a long­standing cybersecurity leader who previously had led our Detection and Response Team (DART). We referred to DART as “the Microsoft cybersecurity team we hope you never meet” because it contacts customers if they have suffered a cyberattack. In this case, some of our smaller customers took that attitude to heart a bit too literally. After answering the phone and hearing someone explain they were from Microsoft calling about a cyberattack, some responded angrily to what they believed was a hoax.

Naturally, our engineers put an extremely high priority on investigating any potential intrusions into Microsoft’s own network. While at first there was no indication that we had been targeted, deeper digging by more people identified that Microsoft, too, had been a target.

This work revealed a limited presence of malicious SolarWinds code on Microsoft’s internal network, as well as other attempted activities. For example, we found unusual activity with a small number of internal accounts and we discovered one account had been used to view source code in a number of source code repositories. This did not enable the attackers to change any source code, and we found no evidence of access to production services or customer data. The investigation also found no indications that our systems were used to attack others. Ultimately, the implementation of cybersecurity best practices had limited the impact, but the intrusion was sobering nonetheless.

In many respects, Yttrium’s work represented one of the most sophisticated cyber intrusions we had ever seen. The attackers in many instances wrote customized code for a specific network and went to great lengths to cover their tracks. As our experts noted, the work reflected a high level of technical expertise and execution.

But equally notable was the operation’s scale. Yttrium had deployed large teams of engineers who acted with patience and persistence. In many instances, they recognized that the ultimate target, such as a U.S. agency, likely had strong security protection in place. So they began by targeting trusted third parties of these agencies, such as an IT service company that might have access to an agency’s network. Once inside this company’s network, they could seek to identify the account of an employee who had access to a government network and try to obtain that individual’s password. And once equipped with that password, they could then look to jump into a government network itself.

The attackers shrewdly used American data centers to help cloak the attacks. Because the NSA has the authority to scan only foreign activity but not computers in the U.S. itself, we surmised that Yttrium used U.S.­-based servers at GoDaddy, AWS, and other smaller U.S. providers to host its command-­and­-control operations and evade detection.

Put together, all this illustrates the degree to which cyberthreats have intensified around the world. Ultimately, the new attack illustrated publicly what can be accomplished if a government builds a large organization that attracts top­-tier technical talent and uses that capability to launch a sustained cyberattack. And it showed how much technology has changed not just the relations be­tween nations but the nature of the tensions—and even hostilities— this can create.


THE HARD WORK AHEAD

As the digital trail led to more information about what had happened, even bigger questions emerged. What did the attack say about network vulnerabilities and the global state of cybersecurity protection? How could the tech sector and the government better protect the country and the world?

By February 2021, congressional committees had summoned witnesses to Washington, D.C., to answer these and similar questions. The Senate Intelligence Committee, led by Senators Mark Warner and Marco Rubio, led off with a lengthy Tuesday afternoon session, where I sat at the witness table next to FireEye’s Kevin Mandia and SolarWinds’ new CEO, Sudhakar Ramakrishna. (They also summoned Amazon, but it refused to participate.) The three of us took turns answering questions in person, an exercise we repeated three days later in a virtual joint hearing before the House Homeland Security and Oversight committees. Both hearings examined not only what had happened but also what steps needed to be taken to prevent such attacks in the future.

An initial conclusion is that the world needs to modernize technology infrastructure and broaden the use of cybersecurity best practices. This includes work by the companies that create software to better harden the software “build process” and every part of the software supply chain, to help prevent the insertion of malware into a software update.

The hearings on Capitol Hill hammered home that it will take governments and tech companies working together to secure the world’s digital infrastructure. While this can start with stronger protection for government networks themselves, it must reach well beyond the public sector. We need to broaden awareness and encourage expanded adoption of cybersecurity precautions, and tech companies like Microsoft must make it simpler and easier for customers to understand and use the security protections we create.

As we look to the future, it’s apparent that the next decade will be defined in part by issues like international norms for governments and practical steps to strengthen our cybersecurity defenses. Tech­nology in some respects has created a more dangerous world. A coun­try like the United States can no longer rely on large oceans to separate it from its rivals. The internet has made everyone each other’s next­-door neighbor. And software that can be used for espionage can equally be used as ransomware or a weapon to disable a nation’s electrical grid or water supply. Ultimately, it’s easier to send code into battle than troops and missiles.

None of this changed overnight or because of a single development. But with successive changes over the past decade, two things have become clear: We live in a world remade by technology, and we must grapple with the consequences for the new world we have created.

Why Did Visa Buy a $150K NFT? Why Does Anyone?

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

There are some very good reasons, it turns out, rooted in our deep, totally irrational animal brains.


If you’re anything like me, you’ve been wishing for a quiet week in crypto news for a while now. Wouldn’t it be nice to sleep? But no, Visa decided to announce Monday morning that it paid $150,000 for a CryptoPunk NFT, a kind of blockchain art token, to add to its “collection of historic commerce artifacts.” In an accompanying blog post, Visa declared that “NFTs mark a new chapter for digital commerce.”


There are certain events and inflection points that mark the transition from fringe to something approaching mainstream, and crypto and blockchain have already had at least two of those in recent months. First we had a nation-state getting serious about bitcoin, then the entire U.S. Senate fought over whether wallet programmers are brokers.


Visa’s purchase of a CryptoPunk, I think, serves as a similar marker for the inevitable mainstreaming of non-fungible tokens. They’ve already featured on "Saturday Night Live" and drawn in celebrities from Tom Brady to Jay-Z, but the apparent stamp of approval from a major financial institution takes things to another level. Cynically, $150,000 is probably a steal for Visa considering the PR it’ll get (including this article). But the announcement set off a $20 million frenzy of CryptoPunk trading, and that hype train isn’t coming back to the station.


Visa’s move, though, also returns us to an inescapable question: Why in the name of all that is holy would anyone pay $150,000 for a 25x25 pixel image stored on an extremely expensive and slow database?

It’s impossible to wrap your head around this, I think, if you’re looking for a truly rational or utilitarian explanation. But there are some very good reasons, it turns out, rooted in our deep, totally irrational animal brains – the same strange forces that lead us to make other major purchases that seem completely loony if you think about them too long.

“You have this rock stuck on your finger,” points out William Quigley, co-founder of the NFT-focused WAX blockchain. “It doesn’t look like it does anything. It’ll never do anything. And you paid $10,000 or $20,000 for that.”

The transition to more and more online living, Quigley thinks, means physical status symbols like jewelry have new competition from similarly exclusive digital objects. Both Jay-Z and National Football League player Odell Beckham Jr. have recently bought CryptoPunks costing tens of thousands of dollars (at least) and made them their Twitter avatars. That's probably the biggest single use of NFTs right now. The uselessness, you might say, is the point.

To understand any of this, some basic knowledge about the technology is essential. NFT stands for non-fungible token, which basically means it’s unique. An NFT exists on a blockchain ledger just like a bitcoin or ETH token, but one bitcoin is basically the same as the other several million – they’re “fungible” (with an asterisk).

An NFT is just as immutable as a bitcoin, but there’s only one: There are 10,000 CryptoPunks, but each of them is unique, and that uniqueness creates a lot of variation in their value. Visa, for instance, bought one of about 3,800 female Punks. CryptoPunks are particularly attractive because they were issued in 2017, making them among the first NFTs ever created.

NFTs come in a lot of different forms – they can even be interactive objects programmed to change based on certain inputs – but the most common type right now are image NFTs. Many of these are still essentially links to JPEGs stored elsewhere, which is a genuine problem for trust in the assets. But just last week CryptoPunks announced it had moved all data onto the Ethereum blockchain itself. It seems likely that this move helped push Visa to finalize its decision, because the move makes the assets more robust. Expect more NFTs, especially 8-bit series like the Punks, to transition to on-chain storage rapidly and, if you’re an investor, maybe look for that as a feature.

All this adds up to something deliriously simple: An NFT is a unique digital object. It is exclusive in a way that even bitcoin can’t claim. In fact, not even most real-world status symbols have the capacity to be as unique.

When someone buys an NFT avatar, “they’re saying, this is who I am,” says Henry Love, a managing partner at the NFT-focused investing fund Fundamental Labs. “So it’s more like a custom Rolex with your name on it. It’s one of one.”

Another crucial thing to know is that despite Visa grabbing headlines and all the comparisons to Rolexes and diamond rings, the NFT craze seems to be truly broad and grassroots. Trading volumes on OpenSea, the dominant NFT trading platform, have exploded, recently hitting $1 billion in monthly trading volume for August. But even that’s just the 10,000-foot view: There’s a frenzy of collecting and creation going on across Twitter and Telegram. NFT drop schedules are being watched as closely as Yeezy or Supreme drops were a few years ago.

And while a lot of that is fueled by insider speculation, there’s also something that feels much more real and special about this than, say, debating whether you’re going to buy $100 worth of cardano or solana. Because they’re ultimately about identity and taste rather than just money, NFT shopping has a personal element that seems likely to draw a much broader user base.

However, there’s a major barrier, especially for Ethereum-based NFTs like CryptoPunks: Transaction fees on Ethereum make buying and selling less-expensive assets impractical. I was just about to buy a $60 avatar NFT (because I too am an ape afraid of being left behind by my tribe). But the transaction fee was $50, which is quite a psychological barrier.

That’s why low-fee standalone chains like WAX and Flow (which hosts NBA Top Shot), which are largely focused on less-pricey branded collectibles, are significant right now, and have a real opportunity to grow from a core value proposition. It also suggests the market for NFTs on Ethereum, which have a significant credibility premium, will get substantially more insane, particularly at the low end, when Ethereum completes its transition to a lower-fee, proof-of-stake system.

Video game doors are hard to develop and design. Here’s why. - Vox

Why video game doors are so hard to get right

Doors are hard because all of game development is hard.

Doors are so common in the real world that you probably don’t stop to think about how to operate them.


But for video game designers, that’s not the case. For a video game door to feel real, it takes a ton of challenging work. Video game doors have to interact seamlessly with their surroundings, make logical sense, and look good too. They have to strike a delicate balance between real-world accuracy and playability. All these factors mean designing a door usually requires work from every department at a game company.

And different types of doors require different amounts of work.


Tier zero: No doors. This is the easiest way to go, and many games take this route. Even games that have doors often have many areas that eliminate doors entirely because they want to avoid the headache.


Tier one: Proximity doors. These are the types of doors you’ll find in a sci-fi game like Halo. They usually slide in on themselves, so they don’t interact with any other objects in the scene. These doors are basically doorways, but with the impediment that you can’t see what’s on the other side until you are nearby.


Tier two: Doors that look like real-world doors. The door has to swing forward and backward. How does the door react if there’s an object in its way? Can the door lock? Do enemy characters and companion characters know how to strategize around the door?

Game characters usually don’t physically touch the door, but they might perform an arm gesture that suggests they’re opening or closing it.


Tier three: Doors that look like real-world doors and characters interact with them. These doors have all the difficulties of tier-two doors plus the added challenge of perceived interactions.

To make interactions look realistic, animators have to painstakingly animate characters’ hands appearing as though they’re grasping and letting go of objects, like doorknobs. Once animated, developers have to figure out the best way to seamlessly transition between the preset animations and the human player’s control.

These same challenges crop up as you try to add almost any element to a game. Doors are hard because all of game development is hard.


Like any great piece of art, the blood, sweat, and tears that go into doors are often invisible. The best doors are the ones that work seamlessly and go unnoticed.
