Me: God, I just want a supporting relationship with a good guy. Also me: Falling for twisted-minded, trauma-shaped bad mfckers who are too busy with the hell in their lives to actually care.

I believe this story was tough both for @ConsenSys and Iranian students who woke up to see they were expelled from the online blockchain course. But it's important to watch how hard it is to build the decentralized, borderless world of Web3.0 Will that freedom ever be possible?
In a move that highlights gray areas in sanctions law facing the crypto industry, @ConsenSysAcad removed about 50 Iranian students from its Ethereum coding course. @baidakova reports trib.al/eu3LS8d

If you wanna be an influencer, be like @Snowden
There is a strain of wealthy VC-guy who pretends to do you a favor by "warning" against Bitcoin (or whatever) while hyping centralized garbage-coins that they coincidentally happen to own an enormous stake in. If you ever make it, don't be that guy. If you are that guy, change.

It takes a tweet from @elonmusk to get a global exchange to publish official update, while 1,600 users are waiting out there in the wilderness. Twitter is crypto’s consumer protection bureau.
.@binance said it is rebuilding its wallet to deal with the dogecoin issue that resulted in numerous erroneous transactions, accounts freezes, and has drawn the ire of @elonmusk. By @egreechee and @baidakova trib.al/eLdm96M

So we're in 2021, and a PR person just made an international phone call just to ask if I wanna interview her client. That's dedication.

A #Dogecoin upgrade triggered a technical glitch on @Binance last week. Now some users are finding their entire accounts frozen. @Baidakova looks into what happened and why. trib.al/fwPBKc6

Normally, I would just _unsubscribe_, but in this case, I think, I'll also block. Guys, don't use the word "urgent" if it's not about people in actual pain. PR pains don't count.

Crypto stories rarely warm my heart, but this one is special: @papasweeds is selling NFTs he drew in prison and shares profits with activists helping prison inmates in Russia. Love it when the NFT craze helps support some real, painful and not-so-hype causes.
Prison was a “school of humiliation” for @Papasweeds. To help others suffering similar hardships, he is donating 1/3 of the proceeds from his NFT art sales to a nonprofit aiding inmates and their families (assisted by @UnderKong). Profile by @baidakova trib.al/5fVlDJ9

Pavel is very candid about his prison experience. “I got my brain in the right place. Got rid of many complexes, useless thoughts, became more aware.” His NFTs are metaphors of things many can relate to: punishment, social pressure, redemption, etc.
