Dfinity’s executive brass recently issued a statement claiming that the firm was speeding up its ongoing hiring efforts and was also in the process of testing a beta version of its upcoming offering with a small group of independent developers. If everything goes as per plan, it is being estimated that Dfinity’s internet computer will be available for a live public preview within the next 2-3 months.

Tether and Bitfinex are at the center of an ongoing raging controversy which does not seem to die down any time soon. It all started with Bitfinex covering their losses with its USDT reserve and then manipulating their financial sheets to show no losses at all. It was followed by New York Attorney General filing a lawsuit against Tether and Bitfinex for defrauding investors by covering their losses. The lawsuit was followed by Tether making amendments to their user policy, where it had earlier mentioned that all of its USDT reserves are backed by US dollar, however, it was later revealed that only 70 percent of the total USDT is backed by US dollar. In the court proceedings, the company also admitted that a certain portion of its reserves is backed by Bitcoin as well. The news is surely going to make many consumers unhappy and make them feel cheated, as using Bitcoin as a reserve for the stable coin is not just ethically wrong, but it might also attract several lawsuits against the

Weeks after Bitcoin SV was delisted, its founders and the coin are in the news once again. Craig Wright, who spearheaded the creation of BSV and the self-proclaimed inventor of Bitcoin, filed for copyright registration with the US Copyright Office to be legally identified as the author of the first BTC whitepaper. When this happened, it pumped the price of BSV by over 100% in just under an hour. Artificial Inflation This pump, caused by an unverified claim led to many opinions from many prominent people in the crypto world. Some even called the pump artificial since it did not seem like such a pump taking place so fast could be natural.

Back in April, Craig Wright sent various legal notices for defamation to top influencers in the crypto world such as Ver, McCormack, Hodlonaut. He accused them of making

[…] You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what
