@JimCollinson do you have a clear understanding of how SNT will be viewed here.
We’re probably more in the SCRT boat, rather than the Monero one, but it’s tricky to say at this stage.
We’re likely to be treated differently anyway because we don’t have a blockchain, yet we have other features that may allow exchanges and their customers to comply with what is required. Difficult to predict which way things will fall for any given exchange/jurisdiction combo.
AI blows up you…

Since its advent in 2011, boson-sampling has been a preferred candidate for demonstrating quan- tum advantage because of its simplicity and near-term requirements compared to other quantum algorithms. We propose to use a variant, called coarse-grained boson-sampling (CGBS), as a quan- tum Proof-of-Work (PoW) scheme for blockchain consensus. The users perform boson-sampling using input states that depend on the current block information, and commit their samples to the network. Afterward, CGBS strategies are determined which can be used to both validate samples and to reward successful miners. By combining rewards to miners committing honest samples to- gether with penalties to miners committing dishonest samples, a Nash equilibrium is found that incentivizes honest nodes. The scheme works for both Fock state boson sampling and Gaussian bo- son sampling and provides dramatic speedup and energy savings relative to computation by classical hardware.
You have to do with this for now:
Bitcoin and Ethereum on sale now!
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) today explicitly called 12 tokens securities in its lawsuit against Binance, its CEO Changpeng Zhao and Binance U.S.
Those 12 tokens are BNB (BNB), Binance USD stablecoin (BUSD), Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), Filecoin (FIL), Cosmos Hub (ATOM), The Sandbox (SAND), Decentraland (MANA), Algorand (ALGO), Axie Infinity (AXS,) and Coti (COTI).
I just gotta laugh. What else is there to do.
In other WASM news - the Scheme people are recently jumping on board too this mightn’t seem like much, but there are a ton of interesting lisp-y languages doing the rounds these days, with interesting new ones popping up regularly. Here’s hoping we have an easy bridge for those people to make things for a future Safe Network too.
First Binance, now coinbase. Guessing these are going to be long drawn out court battles as the Ripple suit has been. Can only hope congress steps in at some point with legislation that takes some wind out of the SEC’s sails.
No confusion. Tokens called securities in the Binance complaint not in the Coinbase complaint despite being on both exchanges.
This much may be true
Won’t matter much cos he wont be allowed to make it onto the ballot papers.
I think people forget one of the original goals of Bitcoin/crypto was to take the power away from the people who control the money and the whole system that facilitates their greed and fraud. This is what it happens when you try to appease these monsters, nothing is ever enough.
I hope we will be different
At least he knows well the threats he’s facing.
