0/ 'Twas very much 'M&A Mondays' in the #crypto/#blockchain space, with not one, not two, but *three* announcements revealing the coming together of two previously discrete projects.

A heap of other developments took place on Monday, too, so let's get into it, shall we?
1/ 🐱 @Efolioapp - a P2P marketplace to buy and sell #crypto tokens - unveiled its solution that brings English auctions (as distinct from Dutch auctions) to @0xProject [ $ZRX ]!

Bid for NFTs with either an #ERC20- and #ERC721-compliant token. Neat! medium.com/@emoonmarket/0…
2/ 📣 Per @Cheddar, Facebook hired most of the @Chainspace_io team; its first major 'acqui-hire’ in the #crypto space.

Who is Chainspace? A #blockchain startup self-described as "a planetary scale smart contracts platform." cheddar.com/videos/faceboo…

Assad blocks access to Damascus for EU envoys?

EU diplomats were allowed to go in & out without ever visiting the Foreign Ministry as they adhered with guidelines given to them by their capitals to shun contacts with Syrian Govt.

well, that’s no more zawya.com/mena/en/story/…
The January change announced by Damascus now requires diplomats to get a single entry visa for every visit. There will be and no more multi-entry annual visa for those who don’t have a residency in #Syria
#Norway has been the bright exception. Its diplomats have had a residency and they are have been spending long periods of time in Damascus every month while meeting with multiple parties

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
#HappyNewYear2019
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

'#NorwayPlus'
assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

I recently had the chance to visit one of the most innovative #Bitcoin mining operations in #Norway

Conclusion: Bitcoin mining is necessary, not wasteful, and even superior to the alternatives.

Read everything here and in this thread👇

theepochtimes.com/bitcoin-mining…
So far most #Bitcoin mining is done in #China, with subsidized electricity and coal power, here: A power plant in Xiangshawan Desert in Ordos of Inner Mongolia
. @NorthernBitcoin is one company who goes to where the cheap renewable energy is, in this case #Hydropower in Norway at a plant near Sandane

1/ GRAVE problems at @generalelectric and @ClintonFdn are two sides of the same coin:ACCOUNTING FRAUD--GE's were tougher to spot and will be tougher to convict, but EPIC CLINTON (and OBAMA) charity frauds are WAY EASIER TO PROSECUTE @csthetruth
marketwatch.com/story/ges-stoc…
2/ According to IG Horowitz report, @FBI opened investigations into @ClintonFdn FRAUDS (and public corruption) in January 2016. IRS opened a companion inquiry in July 2016. Easy to understand why little progress happened through 20 January 2017. Under @realDonaldTrump what gives?
3/ Starting under Wendt, @generalelectric ballooned into finance taking scary risks and failing to explain true financial results transparently. Starting in 2001, @BillClinton did the same thing with @ClintonFdn . One common thread is HORRIFIC ACCOUNTING AND DIRECTOR OVERSIGHT

After the referendum May slammed the door in the face of the 48%. Then she locked the moderate leavers up in another room, and negotiated #Brexit with her own cabinet and the pure Brexit ideologues. Goodbye to reality and compromise. #BrexitShambles
In Norway PM Gro Harlem Brundtland, who had campaigned for #Norway to join EU, stayed on her post so that she could negotiate an outcome as many as possible could accept. She went for #compromise and managed to unite a split country. 🇳🇴
PS. Gro Harlem Brundtland made an international career after she left Norwegian politics. I don’t agree with her politically, but she deserves respect. 🇳🇴

Today, @CER_EU publishes my piece on #Brexit and #JHA. I have been looking at this for 1,5 years so I hope I did not make too many mistakes (links to piece - cer.eu/publications/a… and opens thread)
At the outset of the #Brexit process, most people assumed that a deal on #police and #judicial co-operation was easier to get than one on #trade. Time has shown this is not the case. Ongoing co-op on #JHA is one of the few items yet to be agreed on #withdrawal deal. Why?
Well, because the #EU and #UK's opening positions in the #negotiation are incompatible: Britain wants a #bespoke agreement with the EU, a la #Schengen, but is not willing to accept #ECJ or #EUCharter. EU wants to replicate existing models. What to do?

This goes for everyone - play time starts TONIGHT, no slacking! 🤠 #bylarm
Also, if you haven't downloaded the @bylarm app, get it now: it's the best way to schedule the festival, with a decent interactive map to get you from venue to venue.

Remember venues can be up to 30 minutes walk from each other & plan accordingly! #bylarm2018 #bylarm
My "DON'T MISS" for the festival is @AmandaMair who I've been a huge fan of for the last 7 years (when she was 17 years old!) - hey @BYLARM you don't have her listed on the artists page of the website, or the app... #bylarm #bylarm2018
