If you want to enjoy my feed more, remember that I'm usually either very serious or very playful but it's up to you to figure out the difference.

Women have 10x more imposter syndrome than men Almost every time I talk to a smart female developer, she will say that she feels she is not sure if she is qualified for XYZ role. A male with the same pedigree just goes for it. The solution is to build confidence in women...
I'm just not seeing enough new female or minority crypto startup co-founders. I've probably taken over 100 pitches this year and it's glaringly bad right now. My next startup will have a female co-founder. I strongly urge that crypto founders help fix this problem now!

Just finished my @TEDxUnyp @TEDx cross reality talk about the "Future of immersive #Metaverse". Managed to connect real life audience with our #VR @SomniumSpace audience in real-time while I was physically on stage. Thank you all who joined live and inside #VirtualReality. #TED

Let's pick apart this preprint and see if Peter's claim holds. I spent less than 1 minute scanning it, and I'm pretty sure it is flawed, but I'm going to review it live on Twitter
This is such a good litmus test for how ethical people are: do you support mandatory vaccination for healthy children when it is clearly more harmful than covid itself? Forcing healthy young people to risk their lives in a futile attempt at saving a few elderly lives is insane.

DeFi needs identity - that’s why @civickey is launching a DeFi identity layer with @identity later this month…stay tuned! This will enable institutional capital to flow into DeFi.

2A. Which in turn means that the feds will not allow for anonymous SCs. Someone will need to take responsibility or it will be deemed illegal, which may prevent off shore contracts from being legal if they don’t register. Proof of Authorship and Identity could be a thing

I will not support the @Sol_blocks project on @Solana. Retweet if you agree. Cloning projects from Ethereum against the wishes of the artist is unacceptable!
Replying to @Sol_blocks
Not only is this distasteful as hell, it's also unauthorized commercial usage of my program. I'm asking you to stop, please.

Metacask is proud to present: The Angel's Share NFT, developed in partnership with the legendary @TrevorJonesArt. This drop, arguably the largest for any #NFT attached to a physical asset, stands to break records in the #whisky and #NFT markets alike. bit.ly/2QAy9eg

All I see is 400,000 tps.
1/ Solana Mainnet Beta encountered a large increase in transaction load which peaked at 400,000 TPS. These transactions flooded the transaction processing queue, and lack of prioritization of network-critical messaging caused the network to start forking.
