Drug dealers who relied on Bitcoin’s ‘anonymity’ get 30 years behind bars‎

Members of a Bitcoin-fueled drug ring that used the dark web to import crystal meth into the UK have been sentenced to more than 30 years behind bars. Most drugs were imported from Canada in a popular comparison website’s freebie toys. The group is believed to have sold more than 1 kilo of controlled drugs – including cocaine and ecstasy – worth tens of thousands of pounds during a fourth-month period in 2017. Once sold, dealers distributed the substances to customers through a ‘ring-and-bring’ phone line. Patrick Palmer, the prosecutor, said approximately $78,000 (£61,000) worth of drugs and at least… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Bitcoin

In a new blog post that was posted yesterday, the company’s director of product management Eddie O’Neil wrote that it will be subjecting apps with “minimal utility,” such as personality quizzes, to heightened scrutiny and “may not be permitted on the platform.” The social network also took to the post to say that it will be removing third-party developer access to a number of old APIs effective April 30. In addition, apps will also be restricted from asking for data that doesn’t directly improve the in-app user experience. “Apps with… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Facebook

No, new CO₂ capture tech won’t stop climate change‎

According to a recent major UN report, if we are to limit temperature rise to 1.5 °C and prevent the most catastrophic effects of climate change, we need to reduce global CO₂ emissions to net zero by 2050. This means eliminating fossil fuel use fast – but to cushion that transition and offset the areas in which there is currently no replacement for combustibles, we need to actively remove CO₂ from the atmosphere. Planting trees and rewilding are a large part of this solution, but we are highly likely to need further technological assistance if we are to prevent climate… This story continues at The Next Web

Hamas raised $7,400 in Bitcoin, but it’s still learning to hide the evidence‎

The military wing of Palestine’s Hamas has received around $7,400 since it began accepting cryptocurrency donations, but tracking the funds is set to become more difficult. Al-Qassam Brigades has been urging supporters to send Bitcoin since January. The campaign is led by tutorial videos that show how Bitcoin can subvert the traditional finance system, Reuters reports. The group is proscribed by the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, which labelled it a terrorist organization. The European Union has done the same for Hamas. In fact, sending funds to the organization is illegal in those regions. “They are still… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Bitcoin
