The Northern Ireland #Protocol is top of the news. So how did we get here? The Unit's Meg Russell and @james_lisak explore.

@theresa_may as PM negotiated a Brexit deal that sought to avoid most of these problems. But it was blocked. Who by?

As May recalled in the Commons last week, the DUP were part of that blocking majority.

But there were "others". She refrains from saying who, but voters against included Boris Johnson, Dominic Raab, Priti Patel, Jacob Rees-Mogg & Suella Braverman.


May was forced out by the Brexit hardliners. Johnson took over and pledged to "get Brexit done". 🤔

Yes, confusing. But he meant a different Brexit. Perhaps even a no-deal Brexit.

Johnson and David Frost briefed that they were prepared for this.

PM @BorisJohnson writes a long letter to Northern Ireland about Northern Ireland before he visits-
possibly in lieu of mtg many in person 📝

Much to be welcomed here but there's something akin to bipolarity in UKG msg'ing on NI & #Protocol at the mo.
On the #Protocol:
Wants "to create the broadest possible cross-community support for a reformed Protocol" - rather subtle nod to unionists.

The problems identified here are (I) fixed already or (II) needing a case made to allow an exemption for NI, ie quite straightforward.
On other matters:
*Recognition of progressive parties, eg move on abortion services
*Indirect promise of Irish lang act
*Moved away from blanket amnesty on legacy
*Titles of deputy/ first minister to remain

Not much here for DUP at face value, wh is odd.
It is but an op ed.

A few points on the #NIProtocol that some U.K. commentators would do well to reflect on 🧵

1) the NIP was signed as part of the WA alongside the Political Declaration before the trade deal was agreed

It was agreed before the 2019 GE under conditions of Benn Act

Signed post GE
2) The PD states that any future trade deal should protect the internal markets of both the EU and the UK

The current implementation of it by the EU is only protecting the internal market of the EU and undermining the UKs
3) The NIP contains within it article 16-which allows unilateral safeguarding action


Both the EU and U.K. agreed to the clause being contained within

How to attack the #djed #protocol:

Another #djed #thread 🧵:
To recap, #Cardano will soon feature a $1 #stablecoin called $DJED that is overcollateralized with $ADA 4:1. The extra 4 ADA collateral is provided by buyers of the $SHEN coin.
Assume: 1 ADA=50¢

Step 1. Buy a ton of $DJED, say 1 million DJED. That costs 2 million $ADA.
Step 2. Manipulate ADA down.

One way is to borrow a ton of ADA, and sell it on an exchange.

ADA briefly goes down to 25¢

Every time I read things like this, I think “those poor $SHEN holding suckers bear all the risk.” Another #crypto #cardano #DeFi #djed #thread: 1 / 🧵
Why would someone buy $SHEN and hold those downside risks? The attitude in some #Cardano circles must be “Oh well they’re all rich dudes - VCs and corporations - with unlimited wealth. Fu*k ‘em and stick ‘em with the losses.” 2/🧵
That’s wrongheaded. The reason to buy $SHEN is that $SHEN holders get any $ADA gains from $DJED buyers. People who buy and use $DJED are giving free $ADA loans to $SHEN holders. 3/🧵

@0xPolygon addresses some of the challenges that face the @ethereum network. There's been a lot of buzz around $MATIC lately, but the chain was down for 8 hours last week.

Read more about the sidechain (or Layer 2??) in our latest article:
1/ Polygon has various scaling solutions, and users are at liberty of selecting the scaling solution that suits them best. Some of these solutions are already working, while others are still developing.
2/ Polygon performs most of the tasks you enjoy from Ethereum but avoids the low throughput and high transaction fees. Polygon started as a simple scaling solution, but it has now evolved to a broad ecosystem with various use cases.

Hace pocos días @exactly_finance publicó un articulo explicando como funciona el protocolo. A continuación un pequeño🧵sobre su propuesta de valor, para los que estamos ansiosos...

#Defi #Protocol #Lending #ETH
#Exactly va a ser un protocolo open source, decentralizado y non custodial, que va a permitir prestar a tasas fijas o variables y tomar prestado a una tasa fija y con una fecha de vencimiento 📈.
En su primera versión se desarrolla sobre #Ethereum, poniendo como objetivo alcanzar whale transactions 🐋.

En sus siguientes versiones pretende incorporar Ethereum L2 permitiendo mayor cantidad de transacciones de montos más pequeños.

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

1.Well You guys asked and we couldn't handle the hype of delivering our @GuildOfGuardian report 🧵

Have a GOG read⬇️

#GOG is a mobile #blockchain multiplayer, fantasy, action RPG where players build their #NFT dream team of Guardians and compete in a #guild to earn epic rewards
2.The game is developed by @StepicoGame and built on @Immutable.

#GOG ambitious goal started in early 2020 and it is set to take off thanks to these 4 main areas where the GOG team wants to focus the most when making the #blockchain game.
3.@Immutable is a #layer2 #protocol that will in fact power the core technology that allows users to trade with zero #gasfee and with much higher #TPS (transactions per second) compared to @Ethereum.

This is a key point when it comes to #gaming infrastructure ⬇️

Science should never rest on its findings nor thwart any other opinions.

We grow by challenging science

Where would we be w/out challenging the scientific status quo🤔

Let's remind ourselves of a few things science believed + #imagine where we would be if left unchallenged.
1. Samuel Cartwright
The "slavery scientist" as they called him insisted on MANY false beliefs to further the "status quo" narrative of slavery, including slaves were #animals and to stop them from running away one should torture them and confuse them constantly.
2. Ice Pick Lobotomies
Dr. Freeman committed 3500+ Lobotomies w/ a 14% fatality rate. Many left crippled or in a vegetative state forever. This was even done to children for hyperactive behavior or low IQ.

Including JFKs little sister Rosemary.

1. We need expand the definition of Irishness - one million people living on this island were not born here but call it home, says @IRLPatricia in a discussion chaired in #Derry today by @SusanMcKay15 @IrelandsFuture
2. We need to have an approach to dialogue which allows every voice to be heard. But those who say it's divisive to have the #unity debate need to be gently but firmly reminded that closing down this debate is attempt silence legitimate political aspirations, says @IRLPatricia
@IRLPatricia 3. Many people are engaging in this constitutional conversation because they take the possibility of a "new Ireland" very seriously indeed - it has transformative potential says @cjhumanrights

1/22 With all the hype around the upcoming launch of @prism_protocol, let's take a look at what $PRISM is all about!

Long 🧵
2/22 What is Prism?

@prism_protocol is a #protocol on @terra_money that offers leveraged exposure with no risks and liquid staking on steroids.
3/22 Prism allows users to split their $LUNA (Yield Bearing Assets) into two parts, principal token ($PT) and yield token ($YT).

$PT allows the user to speculate on the price action of the token whereas $YT allows the user to speculate on the staking reward.

$LUNA Has Hit Another ATH: Here Are The LUNA Derivatives That You Need To Be Familiar With 👇
1/12 In the past few months, $LUNA has been on quite the run. The most memorable period was during the #crypto market crash on the first weekend of December. While other coins were tanking hard, $LUNA not only survived it but went on to make a new high.
2/12 as #LUNAtics, we know that $LUNA is but the base form of the @terra_money blockchain’s native token. Just like how Eevee, a Pokemon, can evolve into many different versions of itself, LUNA has many other derivations (versions) of itself.

The #Protocol on IRL/NI was agreed 2 years ago, with a key objective of avoiding a hard @BorderIrish

But what has #Brexit been like for people living along the #border?

We @QUBSSESW @europe_icban @UKandEU investigated…
And our report is out today!
1/10 Cover of Border After Brexit report
This is our 4th QUB/ICBAN report since the 2016 referendum.

The study involved an online #survey of those living/working in the Central Border Region.

Our survey received c400 responses, equally spread either side of the border. There were also interviews & focus groups.

We are VERY grateful to each of the respondents to this survey.

It took a time to complete because we insisted on getting comments/views/examples…

And hence the report is another fairly hefty one, as the #Contents show.

The focus is on giving space/voice to respondents.

So the #Protocol is the talk of the town today, but what do the people most affected by it actually think about it?!

We @PostBrexitGovNI thought that was worth finding out. So we’re running polls in NI with @LucidTalk 📊

Here’s the 2nd one –…

HEADLINE: NI is divided over the subject, believe it or not.

47% think Protocol is appropriate; 47% disagree.

What's interesting is that this split hasn’t changed much since last poll in March.

Most think NI needs specific arrangements but they disagree over the Protocol.

The majority (57%) think there are economic opportunities for NI from the Protocol, but right now, the predominant view of its current impact is negative.

This graph shows positive-minus-negative results 👇

41% say Protocol has a positive impact on NI economy, 48% disagree.

@auteur_Remo @pietgoestweet @ArmandVervaeck Ik respecteer je mening maar misschien moeten we #Bitcoin ook eens van een andere, meer technische invalshoek bekijken. #Emoties laaien altijd hoog op in tijden van een #dump of #flashcrash zoals gisteren. Laat me je even meenemen naar het begin van de jaren 80. 1/7
@auteur_Remo @pietgoestweet @ArmandVervaeck In de vroege jaren 80 is #SMTP ontstaan, het wereldwijde protocol om e-mails te versturen. Iedereen gebruikt dat protocol vandaag de dag nog. Je ziet het alleen niet. Het zit ingebakken in je mailapplicatie. Ondertussen zijn tal van mailclients op deze #basislaag ontwikkeld. 2/7
@auteur_Remo @pietgoestweet @ArmandVervaeck Fast forward naar eind jaren 90, het ontstaan van het #HTTP protocol of de #basislaag van het #Internet en tal van andere lokale netwerken. We gebruiken dagelijks Facebook, Instagram, websites, webapplicaties, noem maar op. Allemaal gebaseerd op ... het #HTTP protocol. 3/7

The NI/IRL #Protocol is a hot topic, at least in NI at the moment.

But we haven’t really known what people actually think about it… Until now!!

We've results of the 1st detailed opinion poll on the #Protocol for @PostBrexitGovNI project (give us a follow).

The poll used @LucidTalk opinion panel (thanks guys).

Weighted sample n.2156, margin of error -/+ 2-3%.

It’s the first of polls to be done every 4m for this @ESRC project led by @DPhinnemore @QUBelfast.

Poll conducted 24-28 March, so before unrest.

Headline results:
Overall we see strong divisions of opinion over the #Protocol.
Most think #Brexit is not a good thing for UK.
Most (2/3) respondents think NI needs particular arrangements through Brexit.
But then they're fairly split over whether the Protocol is appropriate or good.

Why the internet is not only 500% too slow but also in a crisis: Follow this thread to read about it in just 5 Steps.

(based on @Sentivate's Universal Web project and the idea of @tommarchi and his team.)
1. The Internet is structured by different layers: Physical Network (underground cables) Data-Link (WiFi/Lan) and Network Layer (IP-Adresses). You can picture this as the infrastructure of the internet.
2. Problem: We have too much traffic. More and more devices are trying to drive on the metaphorical streets (Computer, Smartphones, your refrigerator, #IoT's etc.), but if the streets are full of cars, it will cause traffic jams aka a #Bandwidthcrisis.
