Hey #Moni Maker 🙃
Today, in 1981, the first DeLorean DMC-12 rolled off the assembly line at the DMC factory. #Moni editorial staff believes that this legendary car has much more in common with crypto than the lambos - DeLorean is not as massively adopted, more scarce and (most importantly) can bring its owners back into the future. The latter, of course, is more of a metaphor, but we, with our ability to make censorship-resistant micropayments, do resemble high-tech super humans against the background of cavemen using fiat.

⚡️BlackRock chooses bitcoin!
BlackRock, the world's largest investment firm, sent two documents to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to add Bitcoin futures to their funds.
BlackRock did not specify which commodity exchange they would choose to buy bitcoin futures. The funds can only invest in cash-settled bitcoin futures.
Hmm, here is the only CFTC-registered exchange that accepts cash for bitcoin...
We wonder how BlackRock will bring the money in? With trucks?!
The number of active Bitcoin nodes are at a record high!
According to Bitnodes.io, the number of active Bitcoin nodes has reached an ATH. There are now 11,314 active nodes in the network.
The largest share of users use the Tor network, launching a client using this network ensures private transactions, hiding the IP address of the connected node.
Therefore, their location is unknown. The second and third largest regions are the United States and Germany.
The new version of Bitcoin Core 0.21.0 is used by 5.6% of the nodes, while the majority (43.5%) use the earlier Bitcoin Core 0.20.1 release.
Tor is our guardian. The hero of our time!
When Big Brother knows more about you than you do yourself, Tor covers you... Like an umbrella on the beach...

Brave browser announced IPFS integration
The popular cryptocurrency-enabled private browser has integrated support for IPFS (InterPlanetary File System), which should help improve access to the decentralized network.
IPFS is a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol designed to make the Internet faster and more secure. The protocol helps peer-to-peer nodes store and distribute data in a single distributed file system with data addresses mapped to a unique cryptographic hash identifier rather than to a server.
