Congratulations, an insightful article indeed!
Not all developers from all blockchain networks are trusted. Some of them can secretly adjust the system to withdraw or issue excessive amounts of coin/token without the pre-warning to investors and even a single developer can collapse the entire project. It means, even the trusted project can make the scam exit without showing any sort of the classical scam signs.
The story in the second place is My Wife: A Strong Woman, Not a Vessel.
I’ve named this Hashmask “Not a Vessel” to honor my wife and all the women who fight to preserve their identity through pregnancy.
Alberto Cuesta Cañada - we really appreciate your sentiment, and congratulations on writing a winner story!
The third winner of this month is A Beginners Guide to Decentralized Internet.
Innovative services provided by ISPs and tech giants like Google and Facebook boosted the internet's growth. But, this has resulted in power being in the hands of few and the internet being controlled by governments and tech service providers.
That's a wrap! We'll contact winners for the payments. Enjoy!
