An exclusive community investing in blue-chip art (Sponsor)

Contemporary art prices outperformed the S&P 500 by 172% from 2000-2020, so it’s no surprise 84% of ultra-high-net-worth individuals collect art.

Masterworks is democratizing the asset class, allowing you to become part-owner of artwork by proven artists like Basquiat, Warhol, and Banksy.

The strange, sketchy emails a browser extension developer receives (6 minute read)

Chrome extensions can be exploited in many ways, as can be seen in the numerous malware-ridden extensions that have spread over the past year. Up to 3 million devices were infected by malware identified in Chrome and Edge extensions in December 2020. Chrome updates extensions as soon as they pass the automated review, so any extension can suddenly become a Trojan horse. Extension developers are being contacted by companies to either sell their extensions or insert code into their extensions for payment. Examples of these requests are available in the article.
America’s First DAO Approved in Wyoming (3 minute read)

The American CryptoFed DAO (decentralized autonomous organization) is the first legally recognized DAO in the US. It is based on the EOS protocol instead of Ethereum, the cryptocurrency most commonly associated with DAOs. Wyoming lawmakers voted in March to pass a bill, which came into effect in early July, allowing DAOs to be officially registered in the state. The law gives DAOs the same rights as a limited liability company. DAOs are governed by smart contracts and do not have the hierarchical control structures seen in traditional companies.
