Haven't heard of Dauphinot's coup attempt, but I totally believe Tether can threaten the whole crypto market if something goes wrong.

Thankfully I've been in the green with ALGO since september, but I'm not really familiar with its architecture. My understanding is that its a 3rd gen blockchain that doesn't have as much of an ecosystem as Ethereum, but is probably technically be superior in terms of energy efficiency and transaction fees, maybe even in terms of security.

Actually the web3 intelligence agency I'm brainstorming, I think I'll build on Algorand first. It seems to run on Python, rather than some bespoke language like Solidity or Clarity.

Plus, I owe a lot of my confidence to the fact that Algorand is an MIT project and has renowned cryptographers behind it.

As for price predictions, I'm not expecting anything wild soon.

Sounds like a scam, at worst, or a joke, at best.

Although I do wonder, from an outside perspective, how easy it is to smell the scams that seem obvious to me.

Like Ethereum Max, for instance, which has now led to a lawsuit against Kim Kardashian and Floyd Mayweather and Paul Pierce.

But then again, I know nothing about octopus network, so it could be a legitimate project as far as I know.

Stranger things have happened. Sushiswap is a legit project, for instance, but based on the name alone I'd be inclined to call it a scam.

Jasper is a posh person name. They end up trading in Singapore. They don't call Martin, for any reason imaginable

i bought some octopus network coins, no idea what it is or does though
The core technology of Octopus Network is trust-minimal blockchain interoperability. Based on that, Octopus Relay, which itself is a set of smart contracts running on NEAR blockchain, provides leased security to appchains, and makes appchains interoperable with NEAR and other appchains. Furthermore, appchains can interoperate with blockchains outside the Octopus Network, either via bridges on NEAR, such as with Ethereum via Rainbow bridge, or they can utilize the out-of-the-box IBC pallet to connect with any IBC enabled blockchains directly.

Yeah so in this case, it could be a legit project. The difficulty is that the jargon is so difficult to parse out sometimes, you can't always tell if there is a legit project underneath it all. In this case, it doesn;t jump out as a scam to me, but I also know almost nothing about it.

the best thing about these coins is, as soon as you own them, you become an ambassador of them, a missionary, that's why, if you type in any coin on google or twitter, you will only get raving texts about how they will be the number one coin real soon.
Yeah another problem about crypto, all of the tribal apologists who are expecting overnight riches.

So a hearing from the house energy committee was announced, regarding energy consumption in crypto, and I'm happy to hear that they will rightfully be focusing on PoW blockchains, rather than assuming its a problem across all of crypto:


The United States House Committee on Energy and Commerce has announced a hearing on the cryptocurrency industry’s energy consumption. The hearing will take place on Thursday, January 20, 2022.

“In just a few short years, cryptocurrency has seen a meteoric rise in popularity. It’s time to understand and address the steep energy and environmental impacts it is having on our communities and our planet,” said Committee Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Oversight and Investigations Chair Diana DeGette (D-CO) in a joint statement.

The two added that a focus of this hearing would be on proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains—like those used by Bitcoin and Ethereum—and how such cryptocurrencies could migrate to cleaner alternatives.
