I think its a great thread for general whats up, but these probably deserve more of a spotlight?

Crypto Exchange Kraken Is Laying Off 57 Employees

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-09-06/crypto-exchange-kraken-reduces-staff-amid-digital-downturn

Kraken, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges, is laying off 57 North America-based employees, according to Chief Executive Officer Jesse Powell.

The move represents roughly 10 percent of San Francisco-based Kraken’s client services team, Powell said in an emailed response to questions after speculation surfaced on social media platform Reddit that Kraken employees were laid off because of a security breach. The thread also mentioned the exchange was reducing staff after trading volumes had dropped.

I mean, If you want to focus the discussion on a specific news you can create a single topic (like it’s already done for Thursday-dev updates for example). Nobody will prevent you from doing that :wink:

Btw, I made this thread in order to group news together, so it will be easy for people to scroll the thread and find a specific news. Or simply discover Whats Up in the world everyday

Actually Anon is a pretty good movie exploring a world where there is total surveillance (through each person’s eyes) and the case where there are some who hack the system. What she says at the end is actually good for a movie.

More on the Dweb Summit - no mention of MaidSafe unfortunately :frowning_face: but good to see decentralization getting more of a look in these days.

Edit: … although the comments below the piece show that most people still don’t have the first clue.

I think it’s more that “most” people don’t really care. Nothing is really upsetting the masses to the point where getting off the clearnet is a priority. This is the biggest challenge for Maidsafe marketing.

What’s the impetus to change the way the larger population interacts with the rest of the population and those that are dependant on the companies using g the clearnet?

Edit: Answer: currently there is no impetus. This is the challenge for the Maidsafe marketing crew. Find that sweet spot and ride it till the cows come home.
