Steve Wozniak on Bitcoin
Steve Wozniak co-founded Apple when he was in his mid-20s, in 1976, along with Steve Jobs. The company grew astronomically over time to become one of the most influential and highest-valued companies of all time. There is a vague similarity with Bitcoin when you look at its graph. It has increased in price and popularity over time at unprecedented rates, reaching market capitalizations higher than the GDP of some countries. At the Jalisco Talent Land Digital 2021 event, Wozniak stated how he believed that "Bitcoin is the most amazing mathematical miracle." He went on to say that he "believe[s] in it for the future," like how Apple helped to shape the future. >>Source

The El Salvador Airdrop
It is not often that you hear of an airdrop to an entire country. In fact, this is quite possibly one of the only instances where this has happened with digital currencies.  It is even more surprising when you find out that the cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. Each person in El Salvador is the receive $30 in BTC. Some users on Reddit joked that this would be just enough to cover the transaction fees which, at some point, may be true, although the cost of sending a transaction varies and fluctuates all the time. >>Source

The Banks Fighting Crypto
Congressman Brad Sherman spent a large part of his career working in politics. The Californian Democrat is a known anti-cryptocurrency advocate, claiming to highlight threats that digital currencies pose to the U.S. financial system. The same financial system that he is, in fact, taking his donations from. It was revealed that some of his largest donors are banks and financial institutions. It makes you wonder just how many people who oppose cryptocurrencies receive donations from these companies. >>Source

I'm curious to see the metrics of how much attention HF News has been getting since it moved to blogs. If I had to guess I'd say it gets 1/4 the traffic at best. Do you have insights into that? @Hydra@

Looking good! Something small seems to be broken in the article, the award links seem to link to "hackforums.news" which, when clicked, give a 404 error.
