🎁 TOR Digital Privacy Project Accepts Donations in Cryptocurrency


Tor digital privacy software is now accepting donations in various cryptocurrencies.   According to TOR's donation portal, the open source project accepts, BTC, BCH, ETHDASH, LTC, XMR, XLMREP and ZEC.   TOR’s crypto donation page encourages users to “stand up for the universal human rights to privacy and freedom and help keep TOR robust and secure.”   In many ways, TOR and cryptocurrency represents both halves of the same thing. Freedom of privacy and anonymity represents a fundemental human right that we all should fight for and maintain.    Source  

🚘 TRON’s CEO Justin Sun’s Tesla Giveaway Completed


Earlier this month, Justin Sun announced that he will be giving one Tesla car as well as $20 million in a give-away.   Sun later uploaded a video showing him picking a winner.

Are we seeing the beginning of "Enterprise Mainstream Blockchain" use in the traditional industry? How easy would the process be if companies were to use an open source public blockchain instead of what would presumably be a private "blockchain-based system"?   Source
