  • Facebook's venture into the blockchain space is apparently an ex-parrot. (The Register)

    Called Libra, it's a multi-purpose payment processing, cryptocurrency, and NFT platform. The plan was to have a core stablecoin and and easy way of implementing third-party cryptocurrencies and NFTs.

    Creating a cryptocurrency on Libra is very easy - no blockchain code required - and an NFT apparently not too much harder. Certainly better in that respect than Ethereum.

    But Facebook's plans ran head-first into disapproving regulators because they made the mistake of announcing their plans rather than just launching the platform and leaving regulators scrambling to catch up.


  • Russia meanwhile is not intending to ban cryptocurrency mining as previously rumoured. (Tom's Hardware)

    Just going to track it and tax the hell out of it.

    Fine. Whatever.
