EOS has handed out the vast majority of all bug bounties on record. To date, the company has rewarded hackers with more than $440,000 for finding loopholes in its platform.
According to Hard Fork, that’s two thirds of all crypto bug bounties in 2018.
Tron is putting toilets on the blockchain. A new partnership with China-based portable toilet maker MOSHROOM will let people pay to use the bathroom via cryptocurrency. The companies will begin by targeting Southeast Asia and India.
