The website New Liberty Standard was the first website to offer Bitcoin purchases. You were able to buy and sell Bitcoin through Paypal. The person who created the "exchange" basically priced Bitcoin at the average cost to mine Bitcoin.

This got me to thinking about the first time I heard of Bitcoin. I was a freshman in college and a computer science major. It was Fall of 2010. I was in the lab when a Sophomore csci major asked me if I wanted to help him set up the ~35 computers in the lab for mining Bitcoin. His plan was to mine every night after classes ended until 8am when classes began again and 24 hours over the weekend.

Me, thinking it was a waste of time with Bitcoin being like $.06, said no. The guy ended up setting up the computers himself, mining ~2,000 BTC, and in 2013 when the price hit $1,000, sold half his stack to become a millionaire in college.

Where were you the first time you heard of Bitcoin and what was the price per coin?

Around 2M BNB tokens seem to have been hacked, according to various accounts.

Warning from MevRefund

Transaction: https://bscscan.com/tx/0xebf83628ba893d35b496121fb8201666b8e09f3cbadf0e269162baa72efe3b8b

Wallet of the potential hacker: https://bscscan.com/address/0x489a8756c18c0b8b24ec2a2b9ff3d4d447f79bec

The wallet is moving the funds, first half of it to Venus to leverage it on stables, and then moving it to other chains via Stargate bridge

USDT has already blacklisted the wallet.


Various stable pools could get rekt as a lot of BNB has been leveraged

BNB has crashed in the last half hour

If its a hack, it seems to have happened via Binance Chain to Binance smart chain, potentially indicating that Binance was directly compromised. The wallet in question is now taking up onchain short-BNB positions
