yesterday Github, owned by Micro$oft, banned all the accounts of anyone who contributed to the Tornado repository, as well as removing that code repository - if the code can't be maintained then surely over time it will become deprecated and essentially useless?

To be honest I'm very surprised that the developers were using a centralised version control system owned by a massive corporation...incredibly bad opSec
I didn't know Github was owned by Microsoft though...

they bought it a couple of years ago

although GitHub is just a centralised version of git with additional bells and whistles ( git was written in an evening by Linus Torvalds because he was sick of mercurial, the source / version control system the Linux kernel developers were using about a decade ago )

git can be run by anyone, on any computer, and is a distributed version control system, so with some modifications it should be possible to run some sort of decentralised git repository...

people just use GitHub because it is a convenient way of using git, especially if you are using multiple devices

I always admire the graft even when it goes wrong but it does sound like these are really in the shit

The pair also told Bloomberg they were planning to go to Dubai “soon.” Their friends say they’re already there. The oasis offers a particular advantage, say lawyers: The country has no extradition treaty with Singapore or the U.S.

Dubai as the crypto costa del sol is pretty interesting

I mined and minted 6 this morning, now it's going viral.

My brothers in crypto, this could reverse July's scam loss

Magic money trees. I mined and minted 6 for around $20 each. They've each accumulated around $70 from subsequent tree creation, so I could harvest and gain $420. I could sell the lot for close to $1000. But the project is barely a day old, so going to let it grow for now. Best part is those accumulation gains are locked in whatever happens.

what happened to your orcs?
Still have them all, but like all projects they're down 90% in recent months. They're still building the game though https://etherorcs.com/ and the guide https://zughead.com/
Entry is really cheap right now. I'm not a gamer so I'm less interested than I was, but content to hold indefinitely.

The trees thing continues to grow. It's a self-correcting Ponzi that locks in rewards, quite the innovation.

Yes! Crypto rewards decisiveness followed by patience. We're in the belly of the bear at the moment, it'll all come good again in 18-24 months, like it always does. And the ponzinomic money trees are a pure win at the moment, because I was super early.

so even after losing 90% of your investment on some virtual orcs you decided to invest in a tree that grows money?

I didn't lose 90% of my investment, they were free! It's just that in January they were worth $12000 each, and were generating $200/day, now they're worth fuck all and generating next to nothing. Got a car and 2 holidays out of it this cycle, will get a house with a lake and armed guards next time around.

Crypto in general will I'd imagine, I'm not so sure about NFTs though. It feels like it was a whole lot of manufactured hype and nothing useful actually came out of it except being able to show off in your twitter avatar.

Love reading these stories. Imagining the moment when it starts going wrong, when they comprehend the trade has switched and the multimillion dollar win has become a billion dollar loss, the desperation, the other companies noticing something is wrong... blood in the water, then lies, then silcence and finally they're on the run.

I'm inclined to agree with you here, re: speculative NFT collectibles. One downside is that non-fungible assets generally have a tougher time liquidity-wise (more difficult to establish fair market value given how floor prices work, at least to my understanding). But one upside is that many speculative NFT projects never die, but just enter perennial zombie mode, and can be resuscitated by some future wave of hype, or even utility. In fact, this indefinite promise of potential future utility is one of the driving factors of speculation here.
