CFTC Sues Binance, CEO Zhao Over 'Willful Evasion' of U.S. Laws, Unregistered Crypto Derivatives Products 27/03/2023

Keep your crypto decentralized...

In the absence of former rival FTX, the industry has been left with a shorter list of major exchanges on which to do business, led globally by Binance. Another of the most prominent in the U.S., Coinbase, is similarly facing regulatory scrutiny from the SEC, which has warned the exchange that a significant enforcement action is likely on the way. If U.S. regulators seek to shut both Binance and Coinbase down for violating securities and commodities laws, there's little reason to expect the same accusations wouldn't be leveled at their smaller competitors for conducting the same types of activity.

As you enter the exciting realm of digital assets, it's important to remember the importance of Cybersecurity.

With decentralized networks and cryptographic algorithms, blockchain technology is inherently secure. However, Cybersecurity threats such as hacking, phishing, and malware attacks can still pose a risk to blockchain users.

Stay protected by following best practices and working with trusted partners.

Let's build a safer and more secure digital world together! 🔒🌐💻

1️⃣ What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity refers to the practice of protecting internet-connected systems, including hardware, software, and data, from digital attacks. It involves implementing measures to safeguard against unauthorized access, theft, damage, or any other malicious activities that can compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.

2️⃣ Why is Cybersecurity important for Blockchain users?

Blockchain technology is designed to be secure by nature, as it relies on decentralized networks and cryptographic algorithms to prevent unauthorized modifications of data stored on the blockchain. However, cyber threats such as hacking, phishing, and malware attacks can still pose a risk to blockchain users, especially those who store their digital assets on blockchain platforms.

3️⃣ How can Blockchain users ensure Cybersecurity?

To ensure Cybersecurity for Blockchain users, it is important to follow best practices such as:

🔐 Using strong passwords and two-factor authentication.

🔒 Keeping private keys secure and backing up important data.

🚫 Avoid suspicious links, emails, and software.

👥 Collaborating with trusted partners and verifying the legitimacy of transactions.

By following these steps and staying vigilant, blockchain users can protect themselves and their assets from potential Cybersecurity threats.

At TecStack, we understand the importance of Cybersecurity in the blockchain world, that's why we're dedicated to providing education and resources to help you protect yourself and your assets.

Our team is always here to answer your questions and provide the knowledge you need to stay safe in the world of crypto.

Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming courses about cybersecurity and blockchain technology.

A blockchain smart contract is a self-executing computer program that is stored on a blockchain network.

It is a set of rules and conditions that are programmed to automatically execute when certain pre-defined conditions are met.

Once the smart contract is executed, it is stored on the blockchain network, which provides security and transparency.

Smart contracts are used to automate processes and transactions in various industries, including finance, real estate, and supply chain management.

Because they are stored on a blockchain network, smart contracts are transparent, which makes them a reliable and efficient way to conduct business without mediators.

Metamask is a digital wallet used for storing and managing cryptocurrencies.

Based on our experience we wanna give you few tips to help you prevent from falling victim to similar scams..

1️⃣ Use a strong password:

Choose a password that is long, complex, and unique to your Metamask wallet. Avoid using common words or personal information that can be easily guessed.

2️⃣ Enable two-factor authentication:

Metamask supports two-factor authentication, this is very imporant and should really be considered !!!!! it adds an extra layer of security to your wallet. You can enable it by going to Settings > Security & Privacy > Two-factor Authentication.

3️⃣ Use a hardware wallet:

Consider using a hardware wallet like Ledger or Trezor to store your cryptocurrencies. These devices store your private keys offline, making it almost impossible for hackers to access your funds.
If Ledger is too pricy for you, i suggest using Safepal as it is not expensive at all and i have been impressed by their physical wallet and app since it is super smooth and the support team is really fast at replying when they are in need!

4️⃣ Keep your seed phrase safe:

Your seed phrase is the most important piece of information in your Metamask wallet. It consists of 12 or 24 words that can be used to recover your wallet if you lose access to it. Make sure to keep it safe and secure, preferably offline.

5️⃣ Be cautious of phishing attacks:

Phishing attacks are common in the cryptocurrency world. Be wary of emails, messages, or websites that ask for your private keys, seed phrase, or login credentials. and they're more common on discord and twitter.
It is getting and you somehow need to understand and you should never forget about this: NEVER CLICK ON ANY LINKS NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!

And finally!
6️⃣ Keep your software up to date:

Make sure to keep your Metamask wallet and computer software up to date with the latest security patches and updates.

National Australia Bank Becomes Second Australian Bank to Build Stablecoin: Report 20/01/2023

The National Australia Bank (NAB), has created a stablecoin called AUDN, which it aims to launch in the middle of 2023.
The purpose of AUDN would be to allow its customers to settle transactions on blockchain technology in real time using Australian dollars, NAB said. AUDN could also be used for several other purposes including "carbon credit trading, overseas money transfers and repurchase agreements. But at the same time, it also a way for governments to have greater control over our everyone's money, have more transparency how money is spent, how it's being used. And eventually, more control over who is allowed to spend their money... 💡

They really insist that CBDCs shouldn't be compared with Bitcoin. And we agree, CBDCs are much more controlling than Bitcoin and stand for the opposite.

We would invite everyone to join us for a session about crypto basics, stablecoins and CBDCs. There are many different forms of digital currencies using Blockchain Technology and they are very very different. We believe it is important to spread that awareness and understanding so everyone knows what they are getting into, the different risk level, different purpose.

We are now open for EOI. Message us for early bird discounts on the upcoming master-class.

Quantum computers can break major encryption method, researchers claim 09/01/2023

A group of researchers has claimed that quantum computers can now crack the encryption we use to protect emails, bank accounts and other sensitive data. Although this has long been a theoretical possibility, existing quantum computers weren’t yet thought to be powerful enough to threaten encryption.

However, security experts have expressed doubt about the new claim, saying that although the code-breaking technique appears valid, there is no reason to expect it could crack encrypted data in a practical timescale.

Quantum computers can break major encryption method, researchers claim It has long been known that one day quantum computers will probably be able to crack the RSA encryption method we use to keep data safe, but a team of researchers is now claiming it is already possible, while others say the results require more scrutiny
