据消息称，非政府组织 UGRF 呼吁尼日利亚中央银行出台一些措施和指导方针，监管在尼日利亚运营的在线商业集团，以防止其诈骗尼日利亚人通过比特币和加密货币赚取的钱。UGRF 曾向尼日利亚中央银行、经济和金融犯罪委员会以及外交部请愿，指控尼日利亚在线商业集团 Paxful 涉嫌欺骗。Paxful 公司否认了媒体关于其诈骗尼日利亚人的报道。Paxful Incorporated 被指控诈骗了数千名尼日利亚人通过数字货币在线交易赚取的数百万美元。据称，这家总部位于爱沙尼亚的公司暂停其尼日利亚用户的账户，拒绝让他们访问其在线钱包中的数百万美元。该公司否认涉嫌任意关闭账户和钱包，并声称只有违反服务规则的账户才被停用。

North Korea could target Southeast Asia’s vulnerable crypto sector
North Korea’s cyber capabilities and financial networks pose a threat to Southeast Asia’s growing, yet vulnerable, cryptocurrency sector, according to British defense and security think tank Royal United Services Institute. North Korea has been heavily sanctioned for years by the United Nations, the United States and other countries over its nuclear and missile ambitions. The reclusive state has also been accused of using cyberattacks to gain financial resources needed to keep its nuclear programs going. Southeast Asia’s growing virtual asset sector and lack of coordinated regulation present what Carlisle and Izenman called a “systemic risk” vulnerable to exploitation by North Korea, which they stressed has long used its countries to mitigate sanctions.
BitMEX 的期货合约可能于 12 个月后推出
BitMEX 是最大的加密货币交换运营商之一，其首席执行官在一个专业播客上说，它有意扩大与新兴市场相关的新衍生产品。花旗集团前交易员 Arthur Hayes 表示，这家公司以其与比特币挂钩的永久性期货而闻名，目前开始试行期权合约，这一举动可能会使它与 Deribit 形成竞争关系。Hayes 在一次 Venture Coinist 播客上说：“我们希望在 12 到 18 个月内拥有自己的期权平台。我们正在和一些大学教授合作探索，以一种新颖、复杂的方式推出期货合约。”期权和期货一样，为投资者提供了一种对冲基础资产的方法。具体来说，期权为交易者提供了在未来以固定价格购买一定数量资产的权利。
BitMEX is kicking the tires on options; launch could come in 12 months
BitMEX, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange operators, is looking to expand into new derivatives products tied to the nascent market, its CEO said on an industry podcast. Arthur Hayes, a former Citigroup trader, said the firm — which is known for its perpetual futures tied to bitcoin — is kicking the tires on options, a move that could put it up against rival Deribit. "We hope to possibly have our own options platform in maybe 12 to 18 months," Hayes said during an appearance on Venture Coinist Podcast. "We have somebody working with some university professors on a complicated new way of doing this," Hayes said. Options, like futures, provide a way for investors to hedge their positions in an underlying asset. Specifically, an option provides a trader the right to purchase a certain amount of an asset at a set price in the future.
Path 联合创始人 Dave Morin 担任去中心化计算网络 Blockstack 顾问
Path 联合创始人 Dave Morin 宣布担任去中心化计算网络 Blockstack 的顾问，将为其平台上的 DApp 提供建议。Blockstack 表示其对 DApp 隐私、安全、自由的理念与 Morin 十年前的设想不谋而合。Morin 表示 Path 曾探索过去中心化机制，但囿于当时技术尚未成熟而作罢。Dave Morin 是硅谷风投公司 Slow Ventures 的创始人，是 Facebook 最早的员工之一，2010 年共同创立了个人社交网络 Path，该平台获得了 7700 万美元投资，2015 年被韩国互联网巨头 Kakao 收购。此外，Dave 还投资了云协作平台 Slack，图片分享平台 Pinterest，在线证券交易平台 Robinhood 等硅谷初创公司。
Dave Morin Joins Blockstack PBC Blockstack PBC as an Advisor to Shape the Future of Decentralized Apps
One of the main reasons that Dave is coming on as an advisor is because Blockstack’s entire architecture is built from the ground up to be focused on the user and gives the power back to the user. On Blockstack, users own their data and connections and have the freedom to exit an app at anytime. Decentralized apps at massive scale are not a pipe-dream anymore; they’re already here with 70+ apps built on Blockstack. Our focus on privacy, security, and freedom is not a far cry from what Dave set out to do almost 10 years ago. Dave is the former Co-Founder & CEO of Path and founder of Slow Ventures, a leading Silicon Valley venture capital firm that champions long term thinking and innovation. Dave was involved with the early days of Facebook where he co-created the Facebook Platform. When Dave left Facebook and launched Path in 2010, social networks were moving away from privacy under the veil of connecting the world. Co-founded with Dustin Mierau and Shawn Fanning of Napster, Path was the first “personal” social network, and went on to raise $77 million in funding from investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Shasta Ventures, and Greylock Partners before being acquired by Kakao in 2015.

A crypto asset inherits the security & governance guarantees of its base chain
That’s why you’ll never replicate Bitcoin in a smart contract and you’ll never replicate Ethereum in a parachain

As the tech commoditizes the decision of where to deploy your smart contract becomes less a choice of technical infrastructure and more a choice of financial infrastructure
Smart contract platforms with a lead in financial infrastructure will be well-positioned
This may be redundant but: This tweet was a joke, do not download and install browser extensions from sources you don't fully trust, especially not when they explicitly target crypto users.

Wealth today is a rigged game. (nocoiners)
Bitcoin is an honest and fair game. (Bitcoiners)
Altcoins and ICOs are rigged games. (altcoiners)
Bitcoin is not even the moderate between two extremes. It's the only fair and game without rent-seeking centralized controllers.
