EOS “Hacker” shows they’re not always bad
Dutch “Ethical hacker” Guido Vranken made $120,000 in a week by finding bugs in the EOS programming code. EOS set out a kind of “bounty” for finding these problems where hackers who spot potentially dangerous bugs are given $10,000 per flaw. In just one day, Vranken found eight dangerous bugs, earning him $80,000. According to Vranken, his final tally was $120.000, but he “lost count,” over the process that took him about a week. The news came via tweets, which were posted to Reddit, where another user suggested that Block.one (an EOS dapp) should off Vranket a job - to which he replied: “They did :)” This is a perfect example of how drastically different the workplace is becoming in some industries. It is becoming easier than ever to simply prove that you are capable and skilled to be quickly onboarded, rather than the old fashion process of putting on the suite to interview with a paper resume in your hand.

Steve Wozniak hopes BTC will win out
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was recently interviewed on CNBC, where he was asked his opinion on Jack Dorsey’s (CEO of both Twitter and Square) comments that Bitcoin should be the single internet currency. It was last month at the Consensus Conference that he expressed his support: "We cannot risk hurting what made this possible to begin with … We can't do any of this without the technology being strong and available for everyone." Steve Wozniak feels the same in that Bitcoin is the safest, most secure cryptocurrency: "All the others tend to give up some of the aspects of bitcoin. For example, being totally decentralized and having no central control. That's the first one they have to give up to try to have a business model."
