Twitter threads from last week reveal a series of heated arguments between Cardano founder and Ethereum’s co-founder, and Vitalik Buterin. Amid several backlashes caused by lapses in the Ethereum Upgrade, the co-founders argue over the execution of the POS consensus mechanism. A lot has transpired within the past days after the Ethereum upgrade. Also, there are more like the Shanghai upgrade to come. On Saturday, 24 September, Evan Van Ness, a Web3 investor, expressed his opinion regarding the Ethereum merge. Van asserted that the last ten days after the merge are evidence the merge should have happened earlier. Related Reading: ETH Struggles To Break Past $1,300 Resistance – Back To $1K? Buterin seeing Van Ness’s tweet, agreed with him, saying they should have implemented an NXT-like chain based on POS. Charles Hoskinson Claims Ethereum POS Is a Bad Design Hoskinson joined the Buterin-Van Ness conversation, saying there should be a Snow White protocol to ensure faster POS migration. Hoskinson’s opinion didn’t go well with the others, which resulted in an argument between him, Van Ness, and other Ethereum developers. Snow White is a protocol that provides end-to-end proof of security for POS systems. Hoskinson has been an advocate of Snow White for many years. Hoskinson claimed his idea for the Ethereum network’s technical upgrade in 2014 was better than the present upgrade. Van Ness recalled that Hoskinson got removed from Ethereum due to his bad behavior and lack of notable technical contributions. Hoskinson accused Ethereum developers of ignoring Ouroboros in the last five years. Ouroboros is a secure proof-of-stake blockchain and the first peer-review researched based protocol. He also said the present version of the proof-of-stake upgrade is not well-designed. In their argument, Hudson Jameson, Ethereum’s core developer, responded to Hoskinson’s Ouroboros implementation claims. Jameson told Hoskinson that Ethereum developers hated Cardano because of his actions and behaviors. I guess Charles forgot about his Reddit history and how much he shit on Ethereum as he was building Cardano. Additionally, Vitalik did review Ouroboros a while ago. Ethereum devs aren't wanting to look at Cardano because of your attitude and actions as the face of Cardano. https://t.co/QB3QYRKkm5 pic.twitter.com/daX56FfwGv — Hudson Jameson (@hudsonjameson) September 26, 2022 The Ethereum developer also spoke of Hoskinson’s ill-treatment of Ethereum while he created Cardano. He also said Vatalik had reviewed Ouroboros. Charles Hoskinson On Success Of Cardano Hoskinson boasted that Cardano is not dependent on cryptocurrency to succeed and that they’ve grown to billions without mass adoption. Although similar arguments are not new between Hoskinson and the Ethereum developers, it shows how detached from each other the two blockchain’s have become. Both Ethereum network and Cardano are in the middle of intensive upgrades, but Hoskinson is known for his bullish opinions on his previous projects.

A self-acclaimed Crypto King has witnessed piles of demands from 140 of his investment clients. The 23-year-old tycoon runs a personal company known as AP Private Equity Limited. His investors want a part of his firm’s total of $35 million. The CBC report stated that the creditors claimed they gave their funds to Aiden Pleterski. The aim was for investment in cryptocurrency and foreign exchange on their behalf. Hence, they must uncover where the Crypto King has laid all their money. Related Reading: Polygon (MATIC) Downward Trajectory Faces Resistance At $0.94 Level Investigation Counsel PC has made a series of complaints regarding Pleterski. These include a bankruptcy trustee’s report, court filings, creditors meeting minutes, and other complaints. Investigation Uncovers Luxury Lifestyle Of Pleterski The investigation revealed that Pleterski has 11 vehicles and leased four luxury cars. Also, he resides in an expensive lakefront mansion rented for $45,000 per month. In addition, he frequently uses private jets to fly around without stress. The founder of Investigation Counsel PC, and the fraud recovery law company, Norman Groot, reacted to their discovery. He noted that Pleterski’s extravagant lifestyle does not provide the exact cumulative amount of missing money. Groot mentioned that the investors had warning signs of massive yields that could have cautioned them. He highlighted that the 5% weekly interest doesn’t exist in an open market. Also, a 23-year-old will not turn into the next Bill Gates. So, it is best to communicate with a conservative person while getting another opinion. Presently, some assets worth about $2 million has been confiscated from Pleterski. These include a Lamborghini, two BMWs, and two McLarens. The bank accounts and assets of Pleterski were frozen due to an initial lawsuit raised against him. The present bankruptcy proceedings have superseded the freeze. It serves as a suitable option for the investors for the recovery process. This is because bankruptcy proceedings are superior when it comes to civil claims. One of the creditors, Diane Moore, commented on her $60,000 investment contract. She stated that it would yield up to 10% – 20% fortnightly. Also, she was to receive a considerable share of a 70-30 split on all capital gains. She said the entire investment depends on trust and claimed to be about $50,000 pocket out. Pleterski Disputes Crypto Investment Claims Micheal Simaan, the lawyer for Pleterski, disputed the accusation against his client. Simaan stated that his client has fully cooperated with the bankruptcy proceedings. The lawyer reported that Pleterski’s into crypto began from his teenage age. By making massive success through the bull markets, many investors became interested and offered their money for investment to get rich. Related Reading: Aave (AAVE) Attracting Whales Over Past Few Months – Will It Spur Price Rally? On his part, Pleterski stated that the problem with his investment firm is bad trades and margin calls. The effect became intense due to the prevailing crypto winter and the price crash in the market. He reported that he lost all the money from his investors from late 2021 to the beginning of 2022.

The firm behind the recent success story, where $350M in damages were prevented from hitting the Avalanche blockchain, has released an in-depth audit report of the popular Ethereum liquidity staking solution, Lido. The report has ultimately given Lido an all-clear signal, noting that no significant vulnerabilities were discovered. Here is what newcomer blockchain auditing firm Statemind did find in their Lido report. Lido Tasks Statemind With Keeping Billions At Stake Secure Lido is designed to provide liquidity for staked assets with daily rewards and no lock up periods. Lido staking solutions are available for Ethereum, Solana, Polygon, Terra, Kusama, and Polkadot. Without solutions like Lido, staking Ethereum, for example, requires locking up as much as 32 ETH for many years without being able to use or sell the tokens. When staking Lido you mint staked tokens which are issued 1:1 to your initial stake. With Lido, your staked tokens can be used across the DeFi ecosystem as collateral, for lending, yield farming, and more. As Lido expands its stronghold over liquid crypto staking solutions, the need for the underlying code to be squeaky clean and without any potential complications becomes imperative. Billions of dollars in value are at stake across millions of users. Lido has tasked blockchain auditing firm Statemind with reviewing its code and ensuring no critical vulnerabilities exist — and if they do, snuff them out before they become an issue. Statemind Makes Huge Splash At Launch, Saving Avalanche $350M Statemind did just this but outside of its regular clientele, while simultaneously making a huge splash across the cryptocurrency development community. A proactive review of several top blockchains revealed that Avalanche and associated chains were exposed to a critical vulnerability. Estimated damages top over $350M that Statemind was able to save. In the more reactive Lido research prompted by the client themselves, Statemind, fortunately, discovered zero critical, high, or medium-severity bugs. Only informational bugs were found, which are easily patched and pose no threat, said Statemind. The Results And Recommendations Of The Lido Audit Report Statemind further outlined the results of the MEV-Boost relay allowlist project and Lido audit in a nine-page report. According to the report, the on-chain relay allowlist is “used by Node Operators participating in the Lido protocol after the ETH Merge to extract MEV.” Node Operators use the contract to ensure up-to-date software configuration at all times. “Key recommendations involve checking the number of relays right after the msg.sender check, removing the zero address check for msg.sender, checking if the token address is a contract in the function _safe_erc20_transfer, and utilizing mapping that maps URI to index of relay in the array,” Statemind explained in a blog post. What You Need To Know About Statemind Blockchain Safety Audits Lido is just one of many of Statemind’s clients, which also include 1INCH and Yearn.Finance. In addition to finding a critical vulnerability in Avalanche, Statemind also just announced the discovery of a two-year-old exploit in Andre Cronje’s latest project, Keep3r Network. Statemind is a brand new blockchain security auditing firm with over 100,000 LoC of Solidity and Vyper experience combined. Thus far, Statemind audits have secured over $10B in TVL, and the examples above have only added to this rapidly-growing number. To learn more, visit Statemind.io.

The 3air project aims to resolve the perennial issues that created and continue to contribute to the economic underdevelopment of many regions globally, starting with African cities. The project will launch on the global MEXC exchange on the 22nd of September, 2022 at 10:00 AM / 12:00 PM CET. The project arrives at a pivotal time in global history when the world depends on connectivity for many reasons, including global economic participation. 3air leverages its novel wireless broadband Internet connectivity solution – K3 Last Mile – to provide stable internet connection in places where it was previously impossible using traditional methods. It also provides access to innovative financial and digital identification solutions available through the 3air platform. 3air’s success has come with the aid of an impressive list of partners and backers that have supported its growth in achieving its goal to foster global economic equality and access to financial opportunities using blockchain-based innovations. 3air raised more than $3.5 million from its Seed, Private, Public and IDO rounds. 3air’s native token ($3AIR) will be officially listed on the MEXC exchange on the 22nd of September, 2022, at 10:00 AM UTC / 12:00 PM CET. The 3air Project 3air aims to connect people in African cities to the global economic ecosystem using its proprietary technology to bring affordable, high-speed, and stable broadband internet, digital TV, and IP telephony. 3air uses K3 Last Mile technology to provide up to 1 Gbps dedicated internet connectivity, over 150 digital TV stations, and IP telephony through the air. 3air’s blockchain-based platform will allow easy access to digital services, identity management, payments, and credit line building. Its native token, 3AIR, is currently available on BSC, with deployment on the SKALE blockchain in view. It will be used as the payment method for 3air’s digital services, including digital identities, internet broadband services, digital TV, and IP telephony. The 3air project will be executed over three stages – The first stage is expanding throughout Africa, providing broadband connectivity to everyone, everywhere. The second stage is the implementation of the 3air platform. The platform will facilitate access to telecom services, identity management, payment solutions, and credit line building. The final stage involves leading the revolution within the telecom industry as the premier blockchain-based, decentralized, permissionless ISP platform, tokenizing bandwidth and other services. It also aims to facilitate secondary markets, improve security, roaming, IoT, and connect ISPs globally. Providing Free Broadband Access Locally The 3air project is progressing steadily towards its goal to provide the infrastructure to connect users in African cities to the internet at high speed and low rates. As part of its development plan, 3air, in collaboration with K3 Telecom, installed its novel K3 Last Mile solution at Saint Joseph’s Secondary School (SJSS) to provide internet connectivity at the school. The project will provide a fast, reliable, and stable connection to access educational resources and growth opportunities more easily. The SJSS internet connectivity project highlights 3air’s dedication to providing the infrastructure to improve the quality of opportunities throughout African cities, starting from Sierra Leone. Launch on Synapse The native token – $3AIR – opened on the Synapse Network. The IDO had an allocation of $50 000 at $0.065 price per token. It opened to the winners from the Gleam competition (50 winners) on Wednesday, 14th September at 09:00 AM UTC (11:00 AM CET). The FCFS sale for SNP stakers and the general public opened on Thursday, 15th September. Token Launch The 3air token’s launch is a few days away, and we are prepared for a monumental event in our roadmap. Our launch will happen on the MEXC exchange on the 22nd of September, 2022 at 10:00 AM (12:00 PM CET). Our launch will mark the debut of the 3air platform along with its ecosystem of blockchain-based connectivity and financial solutions. The excitement is palpable within the 3air community, and our CEO, Sandi Bitenc, appreciates the support we have received so far. “Counting is never fun, but counting down to our launch has been surreal. It is a lot of hardwork, but seeing our efforts over the last few years come together coupled with the support we’ve had so far has made the ride smoother than we could have thought. Under the proper conditions, blockchain technology can and will resolve the problems that underserved regions face, and we are excited to be leading this initiative in Africa. Our experience, proprietary technology, and ecosystem of partners combine to become the perfect solution for perennially underserved regions, and we are delighted to facilitate equal growth opportunities globally.” – Sandi Bitenc, CEO of 3air.
