  • When Luna implodes, Venus catches a cold. Or something. (The Record)

    Venus Protocol - a decentralised finance thing of some sort - lost $11 million because it was using a pricing feed, Chainlink, that still had a minimum price of $0.10 when the price of Luna plummeted from over $100 to $0.01.

    So people could deposit worthless imaginary money and then use it as imaginary collateral to borrow imaginary money that had not yet collapsed.

    Other DeFi sites were hit by the same issue, though losses appear to be small compared to the $40 billion wipeout of Luna itself.

  • Will the upcoming Ryzen 7950X have 24 cores? (WCCFTech)

    And Intel is planning 24-core desktop chips for later this year, albeit 8 fast cores and 16 slow cores, where AMD's chips would have 24 full-size cores.

    Crashed Russian aircraft in Ukraine allegedly have consumer grade GPS receivers taped to the flight console. Had. Had consumer grade GPS receivers taped to the flight console.

  • Heroku is having a bad day. (Brandur)
