1/ Many of the activities we perform on the blockchain are invisible to others. There's a limited social graph to see what we and our peers are doing. Enter @phi_xyz, a unique addition to #Web3 that facilitates user engagement and understanding of the ecosystem's primitives 🌐✨ Image
2/ The new internet requires a fresh way of understanding on-chain events. Even legitimate ideas can be discarded as fantastical because they don't fit the current framework. Rethinking how we understand will flatten the adoption curve. #Innovation #AdoptionCurve 🔍🔗
3/ Web3 often focuses on utilitarian products, neglecting humanism. Phi's team understands the importance of creating products that "delight" users. Phi shares this ethos, aiming to onboard the next billion people to crypto in an enjoyable way. #UserExperience #Web3 💡🤝

A victory for #transparency!! 💪🇪🇺
@EDC_eudemocracy paved for the way for information on #europeanparties to be available from the @Europarl_EN to citizens without delay!
Before, information took up to 8 years to be available in full.
@edecapitani @wouter_wolfs @POLITICOEurope A victory for #transparency...
Over the past several years, @EDC_eudemocracy has made many, many requests to the European Parliament to access decisions by its Bureau on the funding of #europeanparties. These included decisions for funding (for the coming year) and final accounts (which wrap up the process).
Invariably, these documents were provided with heavy redactions over the parts covering the EP's reasoning for its decisions: we could see the outcome (amounts), but not how decisions were made. Until yesterday, the latest full document related to funding for 2015 -- 8 years ago.

🧵 Thread: How Bitcoin Block Hash Revolutionizes Provably Fair Lottery Draws 🎰
1/ Hey Twitter fam! Today, I want to talk about an exciting concept that has transformed the world of lottery draws: the Bitcoin block hash. It's not just about cryptocurrency; it's about provable fairness and transparency in lotteries. Let's dive in! #Bitcoin #LotteryDraws
2/ The beauty of using the Bitcoin block hash in lottery draws is in its unpredictability. Each block hash is unique, making it impossible to predict or manipulate the outcome. Ensuring that every participant has an equal chance of winning, free from any foul play. #ProvablyFair

1/7 🎉🚀 Celebrating @cakedefi's 4 anniversary, let's take a trip down memory lane! Back in 2019, @uzyn and I met for a casual catch-up that led to the birth of #CakeDeFi. #FoundingStory Image
2/7 🧠💡 It all started with U-Zyn's foresight in how crypto would develop: He believed that the crypto community would soon shift from just trading to generating cash flow from their assets. His insight immediately resonated with me. Image
3/7 😄🍰 Choosing the name "Cake DeFi" was a deliberate decision. We wanted our company to not only excel but also to bring a smile to people's faces. Plus, there was no other business named "Cake" in Singapore - perfect for us to stand out! Image

Tackling the #crypto trilemma, #PartisiaBlockchain aims to address scalability, privacy, and interoperability with a dual-layer approach.

Ambitious? Definitely.

Let's take a closer look at the project and its distinctive #tokenomics. @partisiampc

🧵 by @FlorentPorrot

1/15 Image
Offering a dual-layer solution, Partisia features consensus, governance & interoperable Zero-Knowledge & Oracle services.

The 2nd layer is essentially a platform for ZK computations - on-chain, off-chain, inter-chain, bolstering blockchain privacy in a decentralized way.

Decentralized nodes ensure security and integrity. As #web3 leans towards transparency, control over information is paramount.

By harnessing a global network of ZK computation nodes, Partisia enhances privacy and security, opening doors to secret voting, secure aid, etc.

A thread. 1/11

An elected head of state is accountable, democratic, representative, cost effective. It provides stability, legitimacy, transparency, adaptability, and unity.

@RepublicStaff @GrahamSmith_ #NotMyKing

Accountability matters. An elected head of state is answerable to the people who voted them in. #accountability #democracy

Democracy is the bedrock of a free society. An elected head of state reflects the people's will, chosen through a fair and transparent process. #democracy #fairness

How to Research Western "Soft Power" Media Influence

A 🪡

Western governments, corporations, and NGOs devote a lot of resources to "research," "experts," and narrative control.

Of course, other governments do it too, but at this point others are pretty clearly labeled, and those governments being bad is drilled into our minds.

In some instances, someone may seem like a "#glowie" [fed] but it is impossible to prove.

However, ours is not a subtle age, and the Western soft power machine considers themselves the "good guys," so they commonly don't even obscure their activities; they boast of them

You’ve probably heard or even used the quote: “The Judiciary is the Last Hope of the common man or woman”.

It is simple; yet profound as a street version of the maxim of the Rule of Law, that “Both the rich and poor are Equal before the Law” and always.

When we were growing into adulthood in this Nigeria, our Generation had the highest reverence for Judges.

Judges? Ah!

There was a deep reverence for the judges resulting in strong public confidence in the Judiciary in those days.
Times have changed.

What better evidence can one present on the reversal of public confidence in Judges and the Judiciary than the recent contribution of @oagbakoba Dr Olisa Agbakoba, one of the renown former Presidents of the Nigerian Bar Association @NigBarAssoc ?I gasped!

1/5: In 2017, former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak appealed to Vietnam to allow Simon Rock, then MD of Sime Darby Motor Division, to return to Malaysia.
2/5: At the same time, @SimeDarbyGroup's Vietnamese unit EAC was found to be creating fake invoices and evading tax. The Vietnamese Ministry of Finance accused the sole importer of @BMW cars of several violations.

3/5: Despite the allegations of tax evasion and fake invoices, Malaysian media did not report the issue. Instead, they focused on @NajibRazak asking Vietnam to release Simon Rock (a British national), saying he "worked for a Malaysian company."
