Auto-Compounding Now Live for $SWAP Stakers
The long-awaited Auto-Compounding feature is finally available for $SWAP stakers! The software has been pushed LIVE to the TrustSwap Long-Term Staking Portal (LTSP) where you can now set your 5-year stakes to Auto Compound and maximize your Staking Score over time. A higher Staking Score means higher APYs and larger allocations in the TrustSwap Launchpad.
— What Is Compounding?
When you stake $SWAP, you earn rewards which are paid out in $SWAP and claimable at any time. Compounding means putting the rewards earned back into your stake to increase returns over time. Compounding can dramatically boost returns on long-term strategies, and the more often you Compound, the greater impact it can have.
Until recently, if you wanted to roll your claimable $SWAP staking rewards back into your stake, this could only be done manually with the Compound feature. But this requires additional time and attention, as well as gas fees that are charged for every transaction.
The new Auto-Compounding feature now does this for you automatically every 8 hours with no additional transaction fees or manual effort required. This means your rewards will automatically become part of your stake, so your Staking Score can continue to grow as your stake matures.
— Why Auto-Compound?
Auto-Compounding can be a great benefit for those who want to max out their $SWAP Staking Scores as quickly as possible. This could b...

Team Finance ETH Locks Only $99 for a Limited Time
Team Finance is proud to announce that we are now offering Liquidity Locks on Ethereum for just $99! That's a 33% discount from our regular price making security more accessible for everyone.
Liquidity Locks have become a vital tool for developers, communities, and investors to protect their blockchain ecosystems. As the DeFi space continues to grow, so does the number of scams and rug-pulls. This has led to increased demand for security measures that can prevent such incidents from happening.
By locking their liquidity with Team Finance, developers can show their commitment to the long-term success of their projects, and communities can protect themselves from hacks, scams, rug-pulls, and other malicious activities.
Why Lock Liquidity?
A Liquidity Lock on Team Finance is an easy way for developers to build trust and confidence within their communities. It is a straightforward process that can be done in just a few minutes. Developers simply need to deposit their Liquidity Pool (LP) tokens into a smart contract, which will lock them for a set period of time. This provides assurance that the tokens will not be sold or transferred and protects the associated markets and liquidity pools from aggressive sell pressure (aka 'Dumping'). The smart contract ensures that the tokens are secure and that the funds will only be released when the lock period ends.
By making it more accessible for developers to lock the...

|Vitalik Buterin Reveals SIM Swap Attack as Root Cause of Twitter Hack
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin confirmed that the recent hack of his X account (formerly Twitter) was the result of a SIM-swap attack.
Sharing the entire ordeal on a post on the decentralized social network Farcaster, Buterin revealed that the attack was executed through a sim swap, indicating that scammers had successfully socially engineered T-Mobile to gain control of his phone number.
One of the key takeaways from Buterin's experience was the vulnerability of Twitter's account recovery system. He emphasized that even if a phone number is not used as a two-factor authentication (2FA) method, it can still be leveraged to reset a Twitter account's password.
'Finally got back my T-Mobile account (yes, it was a sim swap, meaning that someone socially engineered T-Mobile itself to take over my phone number).'
This revelation also underscores the security risks associated with relying on phone numbers for authentication despite prior advice cautioning against it.
Buterin also admitted that he had come across advice discouraging the use of phone numbers for authentication in the past, but it wasn't until now that he fully comprehended the seriousness of the matter.
CryptoPotato had earlier reported the breach of Buterin's X account, which resulted in victims allegedly losing more than $800,000 due to a malicious link falsely promoting a free NFT.
The first publicly-claimed punk NFT, which is quite possibly the very first ever minted, was also lost the exploit, which took ...
|Vitalik Buterin Confirms His X Account Was Hacked by SIM Swap
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin took to social media to share details about the hacking of his profile on X, formerly Twitter. The influential crypto figure confirmed suspicions that the account was targeted in a SIM swap attack allowing perpetrators to promote a crypto scam enticing victims with free digital collectibles. ‘Yes, It Was a Sim Swap’ — Buterin Reveals Hacking Method Employed to Breach His X Profile
Crypto celebrity Vitalik Buterin announced he has reestablished control over his T-mobile account used to compromise his profile on X. “Yes, it was a SIM swap, meaning that someone socially-engineered T-mobile itself to take over my phone number,” Buterin posted on Warpcast, the app of the decentralized social media Farcaster.
The co-founder of Ethereum also highlighted what he learned from the incident — a phone number is sufficient to reset the password of an X account even if it’s not used for two-factor authentication (2FA). “Can completely remove phone from Twitter,” he added and admitted:
I had seen the ‘phone numbers are insecure, don’t authenticate with them’ advice before, but did not realize this.
Buterin also noted he did not remember when he added his number, supposing it was required to sign up for Twitter Blue, currently the X Premium subscription. “Anyway, glad to be on Farcaster, where my account recovery can be controlled by a good wholesome ethereum address :),” the ...
|US Dollar Shortages: Ethiopia and Nigeria in $100 Million Currency Swap ...
According to a report, the central banks of Ethiopia and Nigeria recently consummated a $100 million currency swap transaction. Under the arrangement, an Ethiopian airliner was paid local currency equivalent to $100 million while Dangote Cement is said to have received a similar amount of nairas. Ongoing U.S. Dollar Shortages
The central bank of Ethiopia is reported to have performed a $100 million currency swap transaction with its Nigerian counterpart. Under the swap agreement, Ethiopia’s national airliner, which has been unable to repatriate funds trapped in Nigeria, took over the Nigeria cement company Dangote Cement’s profits which were similarly stuck in Ethiopia.
According to a local report, the two central banks resorted to the swap transaction because the arrangement obviates the need for U.S. dollars when settling. As suggested in the report, the arrangement is seemingly suitable for Ethiopia and Nigeria which both face ongoing shortages of foreign exchange.
As has been reported by Bitcoin.com News, the two countries are among several African states facing persistent U.S. dollar shortages. The shortages have in turn led to the growth of the foreign exchange parallel market. Attempts to rein in the parallel market by both central banks have seemingly failed to channel the flow of the greenback away from the parallel market.
Under the arrangement, Ethiopian Airlines, which could not retrieve about $180 million from Nigeria, will receive the local currency...
|Argentina to Expand De-Dollarization Efforts; Seeks Extension of Yuan Ba...
The government of Argentina is reportedly seeking to expand its de-dollarization agreement with China due to the lack of dollars that the country is facing. According to reports, Economy Minister Sergio Massa would be in talks to expand the current swap line to double the available amount from $5 to $10 billion, lent in Chinese yuan.
Argentina Seeks to Expand Swap Line Agreement With China On De-Dollarization Push
The government of Argentina would be seeking to expand the access it has to a Chinese yuan swap line in order to reduce the use of its scarce dollar reserves. According to local reports, Economy Minister Sergio Massa and Central Bank of Argentina President Miguel Pesce will be traveling to China on May 29 with the objective of doubling the free amount of money available in the swap line, taking it to $10 billion in Chinese yuan.
China had allowed the Argentine government to freely access $5 billion of the swap line, of which almost $2 billion were used during April and part of May, according to estimations. The total of the credit line amounts to almost $19 billion, or 130 billion yuan.
Massa had hinted at this possibility two weeks ago, stating that 'if political conditions are met and if the Chinese Central Bank agreed,' this free amount should be expanded.

Argentina has been facing a dangerous decrease in its foreign currency reserves, taking them to their lowest level during the last seven years. According to Bloomberg, ...
|Central Banks Reduce US Dollar Swap Lines to Weekly Auctions Amid Moody'...
After the tumultuous downfall of three major banks, namely Silvergate Bank, Silicon Valley Bank, and Signature Bank, several central banks made a collaborative announcement of a swift, coordinated emergency response. The intervention aimed to furnish U.S. dollar liquidity, with the intention of alleviating the impact of such severe shocks on the flow of credit to households and businesses. As per the joint statement published on Tuesday, the central banks have decided to curtail these newly introduced swap line arrangements, switching them from daily auctions to weekly operations.Central Banks Cut Back USD Liquidity Backstop; Moody's Downgrades U.S. Banking Sector and 11 Regional Banks
According to a joint statement from several central banks, including the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Swiss National Bank, and the U.S. Federal Reserve, the recently created U.S. dollar swap line arrangements will be reduced from daily to weekly.
The announcement cites 'improvements in U.S. dollar funding conditions and low demand at recent 7-day maturity' as the reason for the auction cuts. However, the central banks say that the 'liquidity backstop to ease strains in global funding markets' could adjust the operations rate provision depending on 'market conditions.'

|Report: Nigeria-China Currency Swap Agreement Fails to Ease Pressure on ...
Nigerian economic experts have said the country's five-year-old currency swap agreement with China has not eased the pressure against the Nigerian currency. According to one expert, implementation of the swap arrangement is being held back by the size of the trade imbalance between Nigeria and ChinaEasing Pressure on the Naira
According to experts on the Nigerian economy, the country's five-year-old currency swap agreement with China has failed to ease the pressure on the naira. Signed between the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), the agreement was also intended to reduce pressure on Nigeria’s external reserves and to ensure foreign exchange stability.
However, since the signing of the swap arrangement in 2018, the Nigerian currency has depreciated versus the dollar from N305:$1 in 2018 to over N460:$1 in the first week of April 2023. Against the yuan, the Nigerian currency slid from the 2018 exchange rate of N48:CNY1 to N66.70:CNY1 on April 6, 2023. On the foreign exchange parallel market, a key source of the greenback for many Nigerian businesses and individuals, the naira/dollar exchange rate reportedly stood at over N730:$1.
Reports of the currency swap arrangement's failures came at a time when several countries have or are seeking to establish similar arrangements with China.

|FTX Drainer Continues to Swap ETH for BTC, Here's How Much's Left in the...
The entity that drained FTX's wallets after the fallen exchange filed for bankruptcy continues to move around the funds.
Although the Bahamas' securities regulator claimed it siphoned the funds, the suspicious transactions now are questioning this narrative.
The wallet designated as the FTX drainer started moving funds during the weekend, as CryptoPotato reported.
A new wave of transactions began on Monday. The entity made a few initial transfers to another wallet, ending with 'd68ada.' They moved 15,000 ETH, valued at over $16,000 at today's prices.
The receiver began swapping the funds for wrapped bitcoin (either WBTC or renBTW) on Uniswap. Other transactions saw the trading of ETH for sBTC on Synthetix.
As of now, the wallet dubbed 'FTX Account Drainer' has been left with just under 186K ETH, valued at $210 million.
These suspicious transactions come just days after the Bahamas' securities regulator indicated that it seized the assets from FTX after the exchange filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Although the Commission said it did it to protect customers and creditors, these transfers are putting this claim in doubt now.
Additionally, the movements have put sell pressure on ETH, which lost over 5% of value over the past 24 hours, and now struggles to remain north of $1,100.

|Hacker Drains $1M From BitKeep Wallet in Swap Feature Exploit
Crypto wallet provider BitKeep Wallet has become the latest victim of an endless wave of DeFi hacks this month.
Blockchain security firm PeckShield first raised the alarm on Twitter late Monday, and BitKeep published an update on the incident in the early hours of Tuesday.
After alerting the public, the security firm asked users to follow some steps to ensure the safety of their funds. The steps included connecting their wallet to a revoke.cash site and revoking their Ethereum token allowances approval, if any.
1/4 About the #BitKeep Swap hacking incident and its solution:
Dear BitKeep Swap user, BitKeep Swap was hacked, and our development team has managed to contain the emergency. The hacker has been stopped. The attack happened on BNB Chain, causing a loss of about $1 million.

BitKeep Confirms $1 Million Hack
Hours later, BitKeep announced that its development team had stopped the hacker and 'managed to contain the emergency.' The crypto wallet provider noted that the exploit happened on the BNB Chain, the blockchain that lost about $100 million in a bridge hack earlier this month.
The platform added that it took certain measures, including suspending its swap service, to prevent further attacks. The wallet provider will also cooperate with security agencies to track down the hacker and recover the stolen assets while promising to reward anyone who could help identify the thief.

|Report: Turkey's September Gold Imports up by 1,700% as Individuals Swap...
Turkey's gold imports of just over 39,000 kilograms in September 2022 are more than 16 times the quantity that was brought into the country in September 2021. The surge in Turkey's gold imports is reportedly being spurred by the rise in demand for the precious metal by individuals and entities using it in foreign currency transactions.'Gold Instead of Turkish Lira'
According to data from Borsa Istanbul’s Precious Metals and Diamond Markets, the quantity of gold imported into inflation-stricken Turkey in September 2022 was over 1,700% more than the quantity brought into the country during the same period last year.
The country’s September haul of 39,000 kilograms (kg) takes the total quantity of the precious metal imported by Turks in 2022 to 140,126 kg. As noted in a report published by the Hurriyet Daily News, Turkey’s January 2010 import figure of 44,210 kg remains the country’s largest.
Explaining why Turkey is seeing a surge in the quantity of gold brought into the country, Tuna Çetinkaya, the deputy general manager at Info Investment, reportedly linked the surge in demand to identity requirements for buying forex. He said:
This regulation led people or entities with large FX [foreign exchange] demand to use gold instead of Turkish Liras in foreign currency transactions.

|Transit Swap Hacker Demands Higher Bounty After Returning Over $16M of S...
Transit Swap's project team was reportedly working on collecting 'specific data' of the victims and chalking out a return plan as it focused on retrieving the remaining 30% of stolen funds.
However, it appears that the hacker is in no mood to let go of the rest.
As per blockchain security expert, Peckshield, the attacker left a message to the decentralized exchange aggregator and initiated the transfer of a part of the stolen funds into OFAC-sanctioned coin mixer Tornado Cash.
Referencing the recent high-profile security breaches of crypto bridge Nomad and market-making firm Wintermute, the attacker demanded a higher bounty and accused Transit Swap of not being 'sincere.'
The note read,
'I don't believe you because you are not sincere. I only exploited eth and bsc chains. If I attack other chains like FTM, TRON, POLYGON, I believe I can get $100 million. With reference to past Nomad and Wintermute events, I should get a higher bounty than what I get now. It's hard not to suspect that this is your official backdoor, and you should be happy that the exploit was done by me and no one else.'
Aftermath of Hack
Transit Swap lost nearly $23 million worth of funds after a hacker exploited a bug in its code on Saturday. After confirming the attack, the platform revealed tracking the hacker's IP, email address, and associated on-chain addresses.

A lawyer representing Russian IT specialist Alexander Vinnik has urged the government in Moscow to discuss a potential exchange of prisoners with the United States, where he was recently extradited. The French legal expert is convinced only a return to his homeland could save Vinnik who has deteriorating health after solitary confinement in France and hunger strikes in Greece. Vinnik's Lawyer Asks Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov to Start Negotiations With Washington
One of the lawyers of Alexander Vinnik, alleged operator of BTC-e who has been accused of laundering over $4 billion through the now defunct cryptocurrency exchange, has urged Russian authorities to negotiate adding his client to a possible prisoner swap deal with Washington.
Frederic Belot, a member of Vinnik's defense team who represented him in French courts, has issued his call in a letter addressed to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Reuters reported on Monday after seeing the correspondence.
'Now the only thing that can save Alexander is for the Russian Federation to enter into negotiations with the American authorities within the framework of the exchange of prisoners between the countries mentioned,' Belot stresses in the letter emailed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Moscow. The department declined to comment.
The move comes after U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed in July that the American side had made Moscow a 'substantial offer' for the release of U.S. citizens currently hel...

|Nomiswap: A DEX with Team Farming and Zero Swap Fees
Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) have become quite popular over the past few years. These platforms allow users to swap cryptocurrencies and make other transactions quickly without giving up control of their funds. These transactions are processed through self-executing codes known as smart contracts, eliminating the need for an intermediary or custodian.
Aside from facilitating the seamless exchange of crypto assets, DEXs offer investors opportunities to earn passive income through different methods such as yield farming, staking, and launchpads.
Although more than 35 decentralized exchanges already exist, new platforms are being launched with advanced features to broaden the earning opportunities for users. One of the latest DEXs in town is Nomiswap, and the platform promises to offer more to traders!
What is Nomiswap
Nomiswap is a decentralized exchange launched in early 2022 to allow users to trade and swap crypto assets with the ability to pay 0% in swap fees. The platform offers other services such as farming, team rewards, and CeDeFi.

According to DefiLlama, Nomiswap is a top-5 DEX by total value locked (TVL) on BNB Chain. The platform is also one of the top 40 DEXs by trade volume on CoinMarketCap. Although Nomiswap currently sup...

|SimpleSwap: An Exchange That Rewards Crypto for Every Swap
Cryptocurrencies have shown that they have potential, both as a payment method and as an investment vehicle. During the last bull season, several countries like El Salvador and the Central African Republic adopted Bitcoin as a legal tender. Publicly traded companies such as MicroStrategy and Telsa also invested heavily in Bitcoin, adding the cryptocurrency to their balance sheet.
As these countries and institutions spearhead the crypto revolution, retail investors are not left out, as many people have profited from investing in digital assets over the past decade. Although retail users can make money from crypto through different methods, the most common way is crypto trading.
In its simplest form, crypto trading involves buying and selling digital assets. However, swapping one coin for another requires using a crypto exchange. And while there are hundreds of trading platforms, exchanges like SimpleSwap help users process their crypto trades instantly while rewarding them with free tokens.

|MappedSwap Protocol: A Cross-Margin Trading Swap Platform Powered by Eur...
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is one of the major sectors of the cryptocurrency space. Today, the DeFi market is worth more than $75 billion, with more room for growth because of the freedom and earning opportunities it offers to users.
The main idea of DeFi is to use blockchain technology to eliminate traditional and centralized finance systems by allowing users to access financial products from anywhere in the world without restrictions.
DeFi protocols offer a number of products, including stablecoins, token swaps, credit, derivatives, insurance, asset management, wallets, oracles, etc.
Sadly, despite the potential for DeFi to revolutionize finance, protocols offering such services are very complex, making it difficult for new users to engage with them. Additionally, most DeFi protocols are built on the Ethereum network, which is notorious for its extremely high gas fees and slow transaction speed.
But MappedSwap promises to offer users the best conditions for trading without compromising on security and decentralization.
What is MappedSwap?
MappedSwap is a decentralized on-chain cross-margin trading swap exchange built on the Eurus network. The protocol allows users to get up to 10x collateral for leverage and margin trading.
Eurus is a cross-chain network that is interoperable with the Ethereum blockchain. It was specifically designed to solve EEthereum'sslow transaction speed and exorbitant gas fees.
MappedSwap offers users an optimized and intuitive UI design that allow...

|EverRise Launches EverSwap With a Native Coin Swap to Facilitate Cross-C...
PRESS RELEASE. EverRise launches their fifth decentralized application (dApp) today, EverSwap, a multi-chain decentralized exchange (DEX), with a Native Coin Swap feature powered by their cross-chain bridging dApp EverBridge. The Native Coin Swap (NCS) functionality lowers the barrier to entry for those interested in the multi-chain DeFi space by making the cross-chain experience accessible and seamless with fewer steps, fewer fees, and faster transfers.
With EverSwap’s Native Coin Swap, users will be able to swap native cryptocurrencies, starting with Ethereum (ETH / ERC-20), Binance Smart Chain (BNB / BEP-20), and Polygon (MATIC / Polygon), across blockchains without the need for a centralized exchange. The Native Coin Swap provides a one-step DeFi solution for trading native cryptocurrencies.
Native coins such as BNB, ETH, or MATIC typically need to be withdrawn to a centralized exchange when swapping for the coin of a different blockchain. This process traditionally costs both time and money with multiple transactions involved and steps needed to be taken by the user. Instead, EverSwap’s Native Coin Swap performs all transactions in the backend, creating a more streamlined process for users with the ability to receive new coins at block speed.
EverSwap’s Native Coin Swap provides a fast and efficient way for users to participate in multiple blockchain ecosystems while staying all DeFi. Since the feature leverages the unique bridging infrastructure created for Eve...
