Live Event coverage:
@0xPolygonEdge offers Ethereum compatibility as a primitive.

Think "Interoperable App-Specific chains - like IBC, but for EVM"

The key difference?

The main token/validator set is actually incentivized to help new entrants (unlike Cosmos 😢)
Edge & "Supernet" shared validators eliminate the need for new projects to bootstrap support from a new quorum.

Frankly, there is HUGE crossover in validators already- so if security CAN be shared safely, I see this being just as pragmatic as merge-mining for LTC/DOGE.
If you are already planning a sovereign EVM chain, or want to launch fast on a shared security EVM chain, then @0xPolygonEdge has set aside $100M in grants for R&D, integrations, project onboarding, liquidity mining, and/or acquisitions to incentivize your use of Supernets.

Game changer. Sienna lend and private #DeFi

Finally! we are getting a DeFi platform complete with lending on a network that is private by default #privacymatters so all of the fun stuff that us #Degens love to play with 👇
But without the invasive public surveilance that we have become desensitized to.
You can share what you wish but not be spied on without consent. This has big implications for you and for protocols. Bad actors are going to have a much harder time manipulating both.
Imagine a #degenbox type of strategy that you come up with, and only those you share with can use it, because it cant be spied? @sienna_network has a great AMM already, and they have already implimented stkd- $SCRT ( @Shade_Protocol's liquid $SCRT derivative) /SCRT LP.

The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, 2022, prima facie, fails to satisfy the tests laid down by the Supreme Court in the landmark decision in K.S. Puttaswamy (2017).
#CriminalProcedureIdentificationBill2022 #LokSabha #surveillance #privacymatters
The collection and processing of sensitive personal data such as biometric & biological samples for the purposes of identification do not, satisfy the test of proportionality.
The absence of any opportunity of hearing for persons refusing to allow their measurements to be taken highlights the failure to meet the State’s aim for promoting justice, as provided under Article 39A of the Constitution.

0/ Mega thread on why I think #privacy will be an increasingly important topic in the #crypto space and why I’m really bullish on some projects & their tech!🔒


Privacy (0/20) 🧵👇
1/ With blockchain & #crypto, a large part of the attraction of the technology is its promise of decentralization, fairness and transparency. However, with transparency comes a lack of privacy
2/ While transactions and messages on the blockchain can be pseudonymous, true privacy is much harder to achieve. Few people want their private details broadcast in a public (even though encrypted) way, whether it is their financial transactions or health records

Ya’ll’ve been waiting so patiently (or forgot. I forgive you). Here’s my mega-thread about stuff I found interesting about Twitch Affiliate (TA)/Partner (TP) and the YouTube Partner Program (YPP)

I spent all weekend reading the fine print, so feel free to ask questions as I go~ Image
To keep it organized, I’m just gonna go thru my notes since it’s all chronological. After I list my notes and comments down, I’ll answer the burning question about which program a content creator or #Vtuber should opt for
Twitch Affiliate (TA) fine print I found interesting

1) Application rejection: yes. Your application for Affiliate can be rejected (even if you qualify) IF you’ve violated ToS and Community Guidelines or just ANY violation or abuse in general

Interesting fact to keep in mind

Private #WhatsApp group links were exposed on #Google search results allowing anyone who finds the link to join the groups & access details of members. The issue was fixed back in 2019 but now has surfaced again.…
#WhatsappPrivacy #privacy #privacyplease
The report by @rajaharia suggests that #WhatsApp groups that use links to allow users to enter, may once again be vulnerable to being found online, allowing anyone to join the group. The issue appears to have been resolved as of now.

The issue is not just with group invite links, but also with individual user account profiles. #URLs of people’s profiles can now be searched on #Google.
