0/ Another doozy of a thread for you!

The past ~24hrs saw a great many #blockchain projects share development updates and partnership news. Amid this, the #crypto space was ripe with discussion on several topics.

On what, exactly? Well that's for you to find out 😉
1/ 🇺🇸 @AugurProject [ $REP ] - yeah, that #Ethereum-powered decentralized prediction market everyone wrote off post-#mainnet as quickly as @Novogratz revises a #bitcoin price forecast (😘) - well the #USmidterms have seemingly awoken punters from far and wide. Those numbers!
2/ 🔎 @adam3us's leading #bitcoin and #blockchain technology firm @Blockstream announced its new block explorer,

Now, users can search and view specific data published in real-time to the Bitcoin #blockchain, Bitcoin #testnet and Liquid #sidechain. Neat!
3/ 📜 @MakerDAO [ $MKR / $DAI ] - by way of @RichAtMakerDAO, @DavidUtro and @Scottrepreneur - created an *extremely* comprehensive GitHub repo for all-things relevant to its fast-growing #Ethereum-powered project.

Now that's one helluva resource!…
4/ 🕵️‍♂️ The team over at @MetaMask_io introduced the rollout of a privacy mode for its leading #Ethereum dApp browser.

In time, this mode will become the *default experience* for all #MetaMask users. Click through to learn how privacy will be phased in.…
5/ 🤝 @b0xNet [ $BZRX ] x @Chainlink [ $LINK ]

bZx - a protocol enabling decentralized margin trading - partnered with leading #blockchain oracle solution, #Chainlink. They'll work to integrate a Chainlink-based oracle for the bZx protocol. Liquidity growing strong!
6/ 🎁 @StellarOrg announced its SDF's largest lumen [ $XLM ] distribution yet: ≥500,000,000 XLM from leading wallet provider, @Blockchain.

The amount (≈$130M) will be airdropped daily in small tranches over the course of many months. Millions to receive their first #crypto!
7/ 📱 @KyberNetwork [ $KNC ] had its #KyberWidget integrated on Vietnamese #tech startup @WisePass_co [ $PASS ].

Now, #WisePass lifestyle platform users can buy any of 50+ #ERC20-compliant tokens in order to purchase credits for a wide array of goods/services. Nifty use case!
8/ 🆔 @ChristopherA kindly shared his 89 slides from Monday's presentation in Zurich on 'Decentralized Identity: Ideology & Architecture'.

Be sure to also check out the @W3C's DID Working Group proposal (link in slides). Thanks for sharing, Christopher!…
9/ 🤯 Brace yourself for thread-ception, because @KyleSamani (MP, @MulticoinCap) shared his own earlier, and I just couldn't omit it.

In his thread, Kyle dives into the ramifications of #Bitcoin's recent CVE bug, particularly vis-à-vis consensus rigidity.
10/ 🆚 Decentralized social network @isTruStory hosted an event at @USC. Here, founding CEO @iam_preethi debated @hosseeb (GP, MetaStable Capital) on how #blockchain-based systems are changing the way we think about 'trust'.

Check out the stream! ……
11/ 👾 #BaaS provider @Bezant_io [ $BZNT ] announced a strategic partnership with Korean social network/mobile gaming firm New.F.O.

They'll collaborate to create #blockchain-based games; a seemingly apt use case given #Bezant's permissioned, @Hyperledger-powered blockchain.
12/ ✌️ In a double dose of partnerships for @Bezant_io, they revealed a teaming-up with KPN Academy, a subs. of Thai conglomerate KPN Group.

With the help of Bezant's #blockchain, the music academy aims to reform the education market. KPN Group integration expected to follow.
13/ 📣 @FabioBerger123 (Snr Engineer, @0xProject) published the team's first development update since August 14.

*Some* updates: [1] release of #0xInstant trade widget drawing nearer, [2] three more join the core team, and [3] #0xTracker supports 0x v2.…
14/ ✅ Pomp is back, tell a friend!

Well, that was quick. Whatever reason @Apple had for taking down the @APompliano--@MustStopMurad 'Off The Chain' podcast, it would appear that it's no longer valid.

Good result in the end, I guess!
15/ 🗣️ #Crypto-YouTuber @CryptoCandor uploaded a concise, to-the-point follow-up video focussing on @_PIVX [ $PIVX ], the first #cryptocurrency to implement a directly spendable #Zerocoin protocol.

Thanks for the quality update!
16/ 🤼‍♀️ Staying on #PIVX, yesterday saw incumbent UFC featherweight champion Cristiane 'Cyborg' Justino (@CrisCyborg) announce #blockchain-based @_PIVX as a sponsor. She is currently preparing for #UFC232 in Las Vegas, NV.

Privacy coin goes public!
17/ 👀 #NEO-powered @AphelionToken [ $APH ] shared a sneak-peak video of its upcoming mobile #cryptocurrency #DEX.

The #Aphelion decentralized wallet-based exchange went live almost a month ago, but only as a desktop app.
18/ 🤫 Following a #FUD-storm re the #EOS #blockchain's legitimacy, @TBCox (Int. Exec. Director, EOS Alliance) compiled an in-depth post addressing recent allegations stemming from a @Whiteblockio performance test.

Will a counter-rebuttal ensue?…
19/ 📊 Having ploughed through the top 300 cryptos by MC, @MessariCrypto's @EricTurnr concluded that, despite its prevalence, "it is a terrible measure."

In search of a remedy, Eric has put it to the people. Read through (or add to) the discourse below!
20/ 👨‍⚖️ The Texas State Securities Board issued an emergency cease and desist order to AWS Mining Pty. Ltd. - a Sydney-headquartered #crypto cloud mining firm - for selling unregistered securities. They have 31 days to request a hearing.

Official notice:…
21/ 💧 @HydrogenAPI [ $HYDRO ] announced a new partnership with Charlotte-based #fintech accelerator @QCFinTech.

Now, #startups of the QCF ecosystem will be introduced to Hydrogen’s capabilities and empowered to build apps atop its public #blockchain, Hydro.

24/ 🎥 @NuggetsNewsAU CEO and thread lover (thanks again!), @AlexSaundersAU, shared a video explaining the upcoming #BitcoinCash [ $BCH ] hard fork; a tough topic to grasp for #crypto-newcomers.

Alex coherently details the proposals at play. Check it out!
25/ ⚖️ Reading over court filings re Shrem vs. Winklevii, @TheBlock__'s Larry Cermak (@lawmaster) shared what caught his eye.

Included was the fact Shrem never owned >5,000 BTC, and that he *somehow* earned enough in the past 2 years to cover his exotic spending habits.
26/ 🗒️ @NearProtocol's @AlexSkidanov wrote a post differentiating Near from Ethereum Serenity. Alex thinks his team can fulfil their roadmap "significantly faster" than Serenity's multi-year-long one. Big differences: consensus algos and fork choice rules.…
27/ ⛓️ @OntologyNetwork [ $ONT ] announced its cooperation with @DVPnetio, the world's first decentralized vulnerability platform.

#Ontology's public #blockchain technology to accelerate use case possibilities for DVP. Click through to find out more!…
28/ ⚰️ #Blockchain application platform @Lisk [ $LSK ] shared a blog post further detailing why they'll be discontinuing #LiskNano at 12:00PM (CET) next Wednesday.

Nano-dedicated resources will reallocate to #LiskHub and #LiskMobile. Click below for more.…
29/ 🙋‍♂️ Core dev of the @scikit_learn machine learning library, Andy Müller, joined AI-centric @OceanProtocol as an advisor. Andy is an Associate Research Scientist at @DSI_Columbia & 'Introduction to machine learning with Python' author.

All done!
