The first episode of 2023 of the Transatlantic Cable Podcast kicks off with news around the “recent” Twitter hack – emphasis on recent as the data was actually siphoned from Twitter back in 2021, but has only recently come to light – timing is everything it seems.
From there, the team look at news that the Web3 industry lost a whopping $4 billion to crypto-fraud last year – apparently, this is good news as the previous year it was a colossal $8 billion. Staying with crypto, the next story dives into the recent news around the closure of CryptoZoo – a game created by internet star, Logan Paul. The premise of the game allowed users to ‘breed and share’ unique NFT creatures, all whilst earning cryptocurrency.
To wrap up, the last story looks at more news around crypto, this time looking at news that U.S. bank Silvergate saw $8 billion in crypto withdrawals, most near the tail end of 2022.
