Talking more about this week, our readers have been crunching on some shocking yet interesting insights on news of the Figma acquisition, the massive Uber Hack, and the Ethereum merge. Meanwhile, we have brought something new for all our crypto enthusiasts - Coin Wikis by HackerNoon, which powers the HackerNoon Coin Pages where you can find prices, data, and stories surrounding the world's cryptocurrencies with $1B+ market caps. Speaking of, do you have any crypto investment worth spotlighting? Click here to enter our Defi Writing Contest!

We’ve also been geeking out with some awesome new updates for you all, like the Emoji Credibility Indicators that you can see besides some of the HackerNoon stories, and an AI Image Generator that helps admin and editors create amazing feature images based on a few imaginative keywords, such as these ones (soon to be available for all writers, like you!). Speaking of these updates, as a developer, is there any project or concept you are working on or worked on that you can explain in a simple What Is, and Why format?

And lastly - we've improved and published 314 stories last week, out of 544 submissions! If you are not interested in any of these ideas above, there's always 1 simple way to start writing on HackerNoon. Ready for it? ⬇️⬇️⬇️


Until next time, we are cheering for you, and happy writing!
