NFT project Decentraliens holders will have the opportunity to attend courses on web3 and crypto thanks to cooperation with Invisible College, an e-learning platform focused on the Web. You must have at least one Decentralien NFT in order to join Invisible College.

NFT memberships allow students to sell their Decentralien NFT after they’ve finished their courses and reclaim some of their tuition costs or the value of what they paid for the course. Afterward, the NFT may be repurposed for the benefit of a new student.

Nas chief operating officer Alex Dwek informed that Nas Academy is dedicated to promoting Web3 use via the Invisible College network’s educational resources and initiatives.

Alex stated:

“Together we plan to build the largest community of learners, builders and investors to help serve the wider web3 ecosystem.”

To date, Invisible College has been utilizing NFTs as a means of payment to access recorded sessions, fireside chats, and lectures ranging from “Intro to Web3” and “Investing in the Metaverse” for its educational offerings.

Invisible College co-founder Nick deWilde said in a statement that “combining a catalog of high-quality courses with an NFT collection is a fundamentally new way to empower students to own their education,” and he owes it to Web3 technology.

It’s now collaborating with Nas Academy, a platform for upcoming content producers. The school offers certifications in social media and video editing, as well as a growing number of courses for cryptocurrency investors and creators.

Decentralien NFT holders will be able to take classes ranging from $49 to $597 for free beginning on Sept. 1. The payment for these NFTs can be done via credit card or crypto. “How to Launch an NFT Project” by influencer Zeneca and “Bored Ape Yacht Club, Explained” by a BAYC investor are two examples of the courses available.

There are several ways in which students may benefit from cohort-learning or group-based training, as well as live interactive sessions and monthly Zoom gatherings with professionals in the crypto community. Pitango, BECO Capital, FTX, and HOF Capital participated in the startup’s recent $12 million Series B fundraising round.

Traditional educators, such as Pearson, do not want to lag behind as education goes more online. The CEO of the company, Andy Bird, recently told Bloomberg that the company is exploring adopting blockchain and NFT technologies to take a share of the second-hand sales of its online textbooks and materials.

CertiK Uncovers Suspicious $2.4M Payments Into Tornado Cash

Certik Uncovers Suspicious $2.4M Payments Into Tornado Cash
google news
  • The money movement is linked to the October 2021 BXH Exchange breach.
  • GitHub reinstated the Tornado Cash code in “read-only” mode.

On Saturday, crypto security company CertiK said that it had uncovered a suspicious $2.4 million payment into the cryptocurrency mixer Tornado Cash. Information suggests the money movement is connected to the October 2021 BXH Exchange breach. It resulted in a loss of $139 million. Although the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) has placed sanctions on the crypto mixer. However, the exchange is still being used to move money.

The theft of over 4,000 ETH worth $139 million from the BXH Exchange at the end of October is likely connected to the transfer of funds.

Hackers Defying Sanctions

The address 0x158F5 is held by a third party and used the Binance Smart Chain and Avalanche staking contract’s privileged method to retrieve staked tokens and withdraw cash. The tokens were then transferred to Ethereum using the address.

CertiK reports that the staking contract holding the funds and locations was previously released by a Telegram group formed by persons affected by the BXH Exchange. Tokens with a bridging ERC-20 standard were converted to ETH at the address in question. To date, almost $2.4 million in value has been transferred into Tornado Cash, represented by 1865 ETH tokens.

Even after the Office of Foreign Asset Control at the U.S. Treasury banned suspicious transactions on Tornado Cash in August, the service is still accepting them. The crypto mixer platform has just received a transfer of 500 thousand DAI from EOA 0x0B789. The money transfer was associated with an exploit in DAO Maker.

After receiving confirmation from the Office of Foreign Asset Control of the United States Treasury, GitHub reinstated the Tornado Cash code in “read-only” mode.

Ripple (Xrp) Price Jumps To New Four-Month High
google news
  • The largest ever buy was on the Bitso crypto market for 54.1 million XRP.
  • XRP prices have increased by around 50% during the last week.

The native XRP token of Ripple has seen the most growth over the previous seven days. While Bitcoin and Ethereum have both had big price declines recently, XRP has seen a sharp increase. The current price increase of XRP may be attributed to a number of factors. Whales hoarding Ripple tokens is one instance.

Tokens worth around $130.2 million in XRP, almost 270M XRP have been transmitted from several cryptocurrency exchanges to many unknown addresses in the past 24 hours, according to data from Whale Alert. The largest ever buy was on the Bitso crypto market for 54.1 million XRP. Approximately $27.5 million worth of XRP coins were purchased by Whale all at once.

High Volatility Expected After Judgement

However, whales have been buying up XRP on the Bitstamp platform to the tune of nearly $84.1 million. To their XRP holdings, whales have just added more than $41.4 million over many trades. Meanwhile, a massive transaction involving 132 million XRP (about $62.1 million) was also spotted by the whale tracker.

Since the SEC and Ripple submitted their summary judgement papers, there has been a dramatic increase in the whale stockpiling of XRP tokens. The current increase was caused by new court documents. It also noted a surge in the number of active addresses holding between 1 and 10 million XRP tokens in late 2022.

On the other hand, XRP prices have increased by around 50% during the last week. Since word of the case’s resolution circulated favorably across the market, this is the result. At this moment, the price of XRP is $0.5015 as per CMC.
