Cardano Rumor Rundown June 21, 2022

Hey Everyone!

Let’s go…

Newly covered today:

1. The Vasil hardfork combinator event has been pushed back to the last week of July. No big deal. Just more time on testnet for the dApp developers to work on integrating the new Vasil tools into their platforms. [](
2. On-chain voting for governance initiatives is beginning to sprout in Cardano via Voteaire. []( [](
3. Here’s the first clip of actual gameplay from Cornucopias. [](

4. Both Blackrock & Citadel have denied the rumors they were involved in Crashing UST. [](
5. Mainstream media is reporting that Charles doesn’t think we’ll get comprehensive crypto regulation this year since there is not enough time politically before mid-term elections to accomplish the task. This would push it to 2025. [](

13. Copi Cafe Episode 7 is out. [](
14. Here are details on the Liqwid Aquafarmers NFT mint that will be going down at 12:00 PM UTC (8:00 AM EST) on Tuesday, May 17th. The medium article describes a 12 hour window for whitelisted addresses. [](

33. Apparently, we are only eight epochs away from the Vasil Hardfork Combinator Event. [](
34. Pavia gives us a peek at a mystery building. Is it a garage? A hanger? An incinerator? [](
35. The Pavia Builder Tool is coming in June! [](
36. Algorand appears to be suffering collective insanity as they consider giving their DeFi projects double votes in governance elections. [](
37. Don’t forget, yesterday was the day that Laszlo traded 10k bitcoins for a couple of pizzas twelve years ago. [](
38. It looks like South Korea is trying to find deep pockets to compensate Luna holders and may hold the exchanges responsible. []( President Christine Lagarde says crypto assets are “worth nothing” and “based on nothing.” She also revealed her son had bad luck in crypto.

49. We now have dates on the first Cornucopias Land Mint June 3-7. [](
50. Shahaf Bar-Geffen of COTI was quoted in a Forbes article on the UST/Luna Terra implosion. [](
51. Having little buddies for the player is becoming a common theme in Cardano metaverse projects. Pavia has Pavs and Carda Station has ADA Minions. Here’s the very well done video announcing ADA Minions in Carda Station. [](

61. Charles hosted a “Memorial Day Chat with Charles” Twitter space. [](
62. Cornucopias has repriced their land mint with the largest plot now going for $1k. This is probably going to make it even more difficult to actually acquire plots. []( [](
63. IOHK has released an article about why eUTxO (e.g. Cardano) is so much better than EVM (e.g. Ethereum) for predicting impermanent loss. Two big eUTxO advantages to understand here relate to concentrated liquidity and fee determinism. [](
64. The rest of the crypto space has suddenly noticed that 5 million NFTs have been minted on Cardano. [](
65. In light of all the uncertainty around algorithmic stablecoins lately, COTI has created a Djed FAQ. [](
66. Ethereum outdid itself in May with 1.2 million failed transactions. That’s a lot of lost gas fees. [](
67. GeroWallet announces that they are working with a major TV network that is putting out NFTs on Cardano in the next few weeks. Is this DISH? [](
68. A Georgetown Law Professor has co-authored a work on what “legal wrapper” is best for your DAO in various circumstances including a great alternative to the oft used Swiss Foundation/Tripartite Structure . This level of published detailed direction for DAOs is long overdue. [](
69. Pavia has a new partnership related to an “NFT Bridge”. [](
70. Solana once again decided to surprise no one by going down. However, this time even mainstream media appears to be subtly mocking them for the many outages and restarts. []( [](
71. Cornucopias has released a full deck on their land sale. [](
72. Another great thread from Sooraj. This time on the “marriage made in Hell” that is the Ethereum account balance system + Solidity. [](
73. IOHK has released a Basic Cardano Onboarding Guide and they would like the community’s help to make it even better. [](
74. Ethereum is still facing significant potential challenges with complexity overload, the full spectrum of MEV, Cartelization of the network due to liquid staking derivative platforms, attack surface related to slot leader schedule, the history of PoW validators actually being the same people hiding under multiple different pool names, and other forms of centralization. You can hear ETH devs discussing these issues here in this podcast put up a few days ago:[](
75. Specifically on the danger of cartelization of the network, it looks like Ethereum’s choice of slashing in their proof-of-stake model has created this ripple effect problem via derivatization of staked assets in platforms like Lido that creates this potential for cartelization of the network. Here an Ethereum foundation researcher details those risks. [](
76. Here’s a new Cardano 360 update on the big things World Mobile is doing. [](
77. New York lawmakers just passed a bill to ban crypto mining related to carbon based sources. It’s been obvious this was coming for a while ever since the reports of mining operations dumping hot waste water into the finger lakes and affecting the ecology. In a place like New York, that kind of thing won’t go unnoticed. []( [](
78. Reports are also coming in that the Biden Administration crypto plans due in August will target Bitcoin and other proof-of-work chains over their “sky high” energy consumption. I think we all knew this would eventually come despite the wide spectrum of clever rationalizations regarding Bitcoin’s energy use by its maximalists. [](
79. Coinbase is really slamming the brakes on growth. They’re actually rescinding employment offers right now due to the “macro environment”. [](
80. Apparently Martin Lawrence is bringing an NFT series to Cardano? [](
81. Here’s a great thread from [u/sobizR]( revealing the strong trend toward centralization in Ethereum proof-of-stake with a current minimum attack vector of only 3! [](
82. Coincidentally, it looks like the MAV in Bitcoin is also currently 3! [](
83. Today (June 7), we may get the Lummis-Gillibrand Comprehensive Crypto Bill. Even if it has only a very low chance of getting a foothold, it may be a good indicator of the potential for positive regulatory treatment of cryptocurrencies to come down the road. []( [](
84. It sounds like Carda Station is minting the land under their central dome today (June 8). [](
85. Bitcoin maximalists REALLY don’t like this data about how concentrated Bitcoin mining was in the early days. []( []( [](
86. Binance now finds itself under the SEC microscope. Is anybody surprised by this? The sale of atoken related to the most notoriously centralized large cap blockchain that is also related to a giant company running a giant unregulated token exchange might not pass the Howey Test? Clutch your pearls immediately. []( [](
87. The Lummis-Gillibrand Responsible Financial Innovation Act has finally been introduced into the US Senate. [](
88. Several mainstream media outlets are reporting that there was a press call with “people familiar with the drafting of the bill” where Cardano was mentioned as falling under the “ancillary asset” category in the Lummis-Gillibrand Bill. Fortunately, it is actually the courts who get to interpret law (when it’s actually passed) in the US and not anonymous people on press calls. []( [](
89. Here’s a video from Charles on the Lummis-Gillibrand Bill. [](
90. Caitlin Long’s Custodia Bank is finally suing the Federal Reserve to get a master account. [](
91. Solana gets a terrible technical risk score from DefiSafety due to its downtime. [](

95. Coti is now listed on Kraken (June 9). [](
96. Dish is launching a decentralized identity and loyalty coin system through Atala and Cardano.
97. Ethereum’s Ropsten testnet goes to PoS. Shortly thereafter: “We do have some missing block proposals”. [](
98. Apparently there is going to be a “Cardano Island” metaverse for our Cardano Summit 2021 NFTs? [](
99. Lido’s staked Ethereum derivative (stETH) depegged from ETH causing concerns over the solvency of a centralized crypto lending platforms (June 11). []( [](
100. IOG has released the EVM sidechain alpha (June 10). [](
101. IOG’s new Lace light wallet will include a dApp store with dApp certification. [](
102. Interesting questions and responses are posted regarding the security of the IOG EVM sidechain in relation to that of Milkomeda. []( [](
103. Our own Whale makes a good point in that in the Island/Pond/Ocean analogy, it’s much better to have one foot in the ocean than in the financially toxic pond right now as the Celsius related events unfold. [](
104. Celsius is having a very very bad month. [](
105. Three Arrows Capital is also having a very, very bad month. [](
106. Charles has been asked to speak before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture. This is an important committee for crypto since they have subcommittees that deal with things like commodities exchanges and they hold hearings with names like “The Future of Digital Asset Regulation”. []( [](
107. A Solana protocol just voted to take over a whale’s account so that they can liquidate the whale’s position via OTC markets to avoid open market liquidation. Does anyone think this is how it’s supposed to work in DECENTRALIZED finance? []( []( [](
108. The ADA Realm heatmap is back in action with some new and improved features. [](
109. Ardana clarifies the status of its treasury in light of the Three Arrows Capital revelations. [](
110. In the recent CopiCafe there was mention of “land staking…coming soon”. Land staking is also mentioned in the Cornucopias CopiWiki. [](
