0/ A scorching hot start to the week here in crypto land!

To help you stay on top of it all, I've put together a 23-part thread on what went down on Monday in the #crypto/#blockchain ecosystem.
1/ 📣 @Blockstream unveiled “MuSig” to its test cryptographic library, making it possible for devs to tinker with the Schnorr signature scheme and potentially find bugs. Hopes the code "will eventually be merged into the upstream library secp256k1 used by Bitcoin Core."

3/ 🤝 @AERGO_io [ $AERGO ] partnered with #blockchain-based micropayments provider @SatoshiPay to create "the fastest infrastructure for credit card and crypto micropayments and transactions designated toward B2B2C clientele and users on the AERGO platform."
4/ 🛒 @Dexlab_io unveiled #Dexpay, a POS for physical and online stores that accepts $ETH, $xDAI, $DAI and other cryptos.

Instant conversion to DAI = no market volatility for merchants. The ann. also revealed Dexpay received support from @MakerDAO via its $45M Stable Fund Grant.

Plenty of use cases here, including revenue sharing, dividends, loyalty reward schemes, and staking rewards. github.com/streamr-dev/mo…

13/ 📉 Great coverage on the NEM Foundation's treasury woes by @Globalcoinrsrch.
