RIP Satoshi’s vision—report finds only 16% of cryptocurrencies are decentralized

Entrepreneurship The Next Web - 3 hours 28 min ago

An overwhelming majority of cryptocurrency and blockchain projects (cryptoassets) on the market today are centralized in one way or another. Even more startling, 85 percent of development teams have the authority to alter their cryptoassets’ protocol at their own discretion. These are just some of the findings presented by blockchain and cryptocurrency research unit CryptoCompare, in its yearly taxonomy of the cryptocurrency sector. The study analyzed hundreds of cryptoassets with the intention of classifying cryptocurrency projects and blockchain platforms. Among other things, the report acts as a “decentralization thermometer” for the cryptocurrency market. It has indiciated a growing trend towards centralization,…

Mashable - Social Media news - 3 hours 51 min ago

In a world of screens, it's easy to forget that we actually live on a lush green planet filled with diverse wild life.

This year's winner is a portrait of two golden snub-nosed monkeys. The photo, entitled "The Golden Couple," was shot by Dutch photographer Marsel van Oosten in the forest of China’s Qinling Mountains, the only habitat for this endangered species.

The photo was selected because it celebrates "the majestic and otherworldly presence of nature, and reminds us of our crucial role in protecting it," Natural History Museum Director Sir Michael Dixon said in a press release sent to Mashable. Read more...

Mashable - Social Media news - 3 hours 53 min ago

Not all Pokémon are created equal.

There are big ones, small ones, strong ones, fairly useless ones. And then there are ones that are just so achingly cute you can't help but love them despite their faults.

ICO of blockchain platform that wanted to ‘fix’ journalism fails

Entrepreneurship The Next Web - 3 hours 56 min ago

The skeptics had a point about Civil, the platform that wants to “fix” journalism. Just a week after it announced a partnership with publishing giant Forbes, Civil has declared the failure of its initial coin offering (ICO) and is refunding investors. Civil broke the news on its Medium blog late Tuesday evening, stating that less than 3,000 people were willing to back the ICO. In fact, TechCrunch reports that only 1,012 people actually bought any Civil tokens (CVL). A further 1,738 registered but never actually completed their purchase of CVL. Alas, the 1,012 that did actually buy some CVL tokens did not…

Why the Palm phone might be the perfect tech product for 2018

Mashable - Social Media news - 4 hours 46 min ago

Phones are bad for us. But don’t worry — phones are here to save us. From phones.

That appears to be the message behind the new Palm phone, a tiny smartphone that functions as a kind of smartphone lite, intended as a companion to your main phone, which, if we’re being real, isn’t a phone anymore and hasn’t been for a while. It’s a portable device that sucks you into its world like nothing that came before, not even TV. Turns out Newt Gingrich was right about smartphones — we really need a new word for them.

SEE ALSO: Here's how to set up a VPN and protect your data

The idea of buddy for your phone that’s also a phone sounds ridiculous at first, but it actually becomes more credible the more you think about it. Because chances are you’re thinking something else every time you unlock your phone when you didn’t mean to, every time you catch yourself “zombie scrolling” in an app, every time a bubble pops down from the top of your screen that you didn’t need or want: “I’ve gotta stop this.” Read more...

Entrepreneurship The Next Web - 5 hours 33 min ago

This Day In Deals is our new section where we share a historical fact and the day’s best deal – and try to connect them. The aim? To enrich ourselves financially, and you spiritually. A beer flood might sound like fun, but in reality it’s no laughing matter. Just take the London Beer Flood of October 17 1814 as an example. At the Meux and Company Brewery in London’s Tottenham Court Road, a huge vat of beer burst. This unloaded 610,000 liters of the liquid everywhere. Even worse, this rupturing caused a domino effect, breaking open other vats of beer. This led…

Mashable - Social Media news - 5 hours 39 min ago

When John Krasinski and Emily Blunt starred together in the movie A Quiet Place, they cemented their status as a true celebrity power couple.  

Krasinski just shared his feelings on working with his partner on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and of course he only had touching things to say about working closely with his wife. 

"I wrote her part with her in mind, but I got so scared [...] that she would say, "Yes, I'll do it for you,"" Krasinski said. "I didn't want her to come to set just for me."

But, as we know, Emily Blunt took the part and the rest is movie history.  Read more...

Stephen King just tweeted his reaction to 'The Haunting of Hill House'

Mashable - Social Media news - 6 hours 13 min ago

Okay, fine, I guess I'm going to have to watch The Haunting of Hill House.

Ever since the nightmare-inducing trailer came out I've been half-intrigued, half-wary (I'm embarrassingly easy to scare when it comes to supernatural, jumpy stuff). But now Stephen King has waded in, so I guess that seals it.

SEE ALSO: The real terror of 'Hill House' lies in family trauma

On Tuesday night, the King of horror posted the following tweet.

THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, revised and remodeled by Mike Flanagan. I don't usually care for this kind of revisionism, but this is great. Close to a work of genius, really. I think Shirley Jackson would approve, but who knows for sure.

Stephen Colbert fires back at Trump calling Stormy Daniels 'horseface'

Mashable - Social Media news - 6 hours 17 min ago

Trump's branding of Stormy Daniels as "horseface" was as low as they come, but the stoush wasn't a surprise to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night. 

"Yes, horseface. You heard it straight from the horse's ass," Colbert quipped.

The Late Show host opened his show with a breakdown of the internet battle which has come between the two personalities, which came to a head when Judge S. James Otero dismissed a defamation case filed by Daniels against Trump.

Otero said that the alleged defamatory tweet was simply "'rhetorical hyperbole' normally associated with politics and public discourse," and that it was protected by the First Amendment. Colbert wasn't so impressed. Read more...

The future of flying is electric planes

Mashable - Social Media news - 6 hours 31 min ago

If you’ve ever played with a carbon footprint calculator and plugged in your flight history, you’ve seen how a trip just an hour or two away ballooned your total impact on the environment

All that jet fuel takes a toll, but electric planes may swoop in and help — one day. Instead of those 176 pounds of carbon emissions for one measly roundtrip flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles, an emissions-free aircraft could fly that same distance. 

Tesla — and to a lesser extent Nissan, Chevy, and even Toyota with its hybrid Prius — made the masses believe in electric cars. Now, many companies want flyers to believe in electric planes.  Read more...
