End of NFTs: Less than one percent are worth more than $6,000

Posted by in categories: blockchains, cryptocurrencies

For every NFT sold, there are four more that weren’t giving buyers ample choice on what they wanted to pick and at what price.

As many as 95 percent of the non-fungible tokens or NFTs created during the bull run of cryptocurrencies just a couple of years ago are now worthless, according to a new report from a website dappGambl that reviews crypto products.

NFTs were all over the news in 2021–22 when celebrities splurged millions of dollars to buy images features Bored Apes and a digital copy of events such as the completion of the code of the World Wide Web or the first tweet from Jack Dorsey on the platform that has now become X.

ChatGPT’s crypto token makes $12 million in trading on day 1

Posted by in categories: blockchains, cryptocurrencies, robotics/AI

The developer also used OpenAI’s DALL-E to create an image for the token.

ChatGPT just engineered, designed, and marketed a cryptocurrency coin called AstroPepeX. The developer, who goes by the name CroissantEth on X, used the AI chatbot to write a crypto contract to create its own token on the blockchain, gave the name ‘AstroPepeX’ to the token, and even created a ticker – $APX for it.

Why Go With an Evil-Looking Orb?

Posted by in categories: cryptocurrencies, economics, employment, robotics/AI

But OpenAI isn’t Altman’s only project, and it’s not even his only project with ambitions to change the world. He is also a co-founder of a company called Tools for Humanity, which has the lofty goal of protecting people from the economic devastation that may arise from AI taking human jobs. The company’s first major project is Worldcoin, which uses an evil-looking metallic orb—called the Orb—to take eyeball scans from people all over the world.

Those scans are converted into unique codes that confirm you are a real, individual human, not a bot. In the future, this will theoretically grant you access to a universal basic income parceled out through Worldcoin’s cryptocurrency, WLD. (You will want this because you will not be able to find work.) More than 2 million people in 35 countries have been scanned already, according to Tools for Humanity’s World ID app. Although it’s not yet available in the United States, the WLD token has been distributed elsewhere, and the company has also recruited users through cash incentives in countries such as Indonesia and Kenya.

The United States government said today that a multinational law enforcement operation has destroyed Qakbot, also known as QBot, an infamous botnet and malware loader that was responsible for losses that amounted to hundreds of millions of dollars all over the globe, and that they have confiscated more than $8.6 million in illegal cryptocurrencies.

During a news conference held on Tuesday to announce the takedown of the botnet, United States Attorney Martin Estrada referred to the investigation as “the most significant technological and financial operation ever led by the Department of Justice against a botnet.” Duck Hunt was headed by the FBI. For one thing, the federal government developed some software that, when installed on computers that were infected with Qbot, would make the virus useless.

Posted by in categories: blockchains, business, cryptocurrencies, cybercrime/malcode, existential risks, military

North Korea-linked hackers have stolen hundreds of millions of crypto to fund the regime’s nuclear weapons programs, research shows.

So far this year, from January to Aug. 18, North Korea-affiliated hackers stole $200 million worth of crypto — accounting for over 20% of all stolen crypto this year, according to blockchain intelligence firm TRM Labs.

“In recent years, there has been a marked rise in the size and scale of cyber attacks against cryptocurrency-related businesses by North Korea. This has coincided with an apparent acceleration in the country’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs,” said TRM Labs in a June discussion with North Korea experts.

Bitcoin trades at five-year low, but value remains strong

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, economics

Far from its all-time high values, cryptocurrency Bitcoin is failing to attract interest from traders, as per a recent report of trading volumes at crypto exchanges, CNBC

The interest in Bitcoin surged during the COVID-19 pandemic as the world economy came to a grinding halt. As investors looked to park their funds in rising assets, Bitcoin became a top favorite, and its valuation soared to all-time highs of over $68,000.

Bitcoin plunges more than 10% after Elon Musk’s SpaceX reportedly sold the cryptocurrency

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk, space travel

The price of bitcoin plunged about 10% hours after it was revealed that Elon Musk’s SpaceX sold the cryptocurrency.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that SpaceX, which first purchased bitcoin in 2021, wrote down the value of its bitcoin holdings by a total of $373 million in 2021 and 2022 and has sold the crypto.

The write-down coincides with a steep drop in bitcoin’s price, which crashed in late 2021, setting off a “crypto winter” that extended through most of 2022.

Worldcoin and Kenyan Argue About Who’s Breaking Up With Whom

Posted by in categories: cryptocurrencies, privacy

Kenya claims it’s shutting down Sam Altman’s eyeball-scanning Worldcoin cryptocurrency within its borders — but Worldcoin says it’s suspending its own services in the country, thank you very much.

In a joint statement, a group of agencies in the East African nation said that Worldcoin “must cease its data collection activities in Kenya until further notice” as it investigates regulatory concerns about the way the project collects biometric data.

Worldcoin, meanwhile, seems to have a different version of events.
