The social network on the blockchain Steemit has banned an account of a hacker group intending to make public documents with allegedly secret information about the events of September 11th. Reported by The Block.

The reason for the blocking was a violation of the terms of the user agreement. As the Motherboard notes, representatives of The Dark Overlord claim that they stole the relevant documents from various insurance and law firms, including Hiscox Syndicates, Lloyds of London and Silverstein Properties.

The source also reports that, based on the Steem technology, there are several other implementations of social networks, such as Busy.org and SteemPeak. The corresponding post and The Dark Overlord account in these social networks are still present.

$60M Nebeulas to Lay Off 60% Staff

The Nebulas blockchain startup team has been reduced from 80 people to 30. The roadmap of the project has also been revised. It is reported by CoinDesk.

Since last summer, a number of cuts have occurred in the project. Also, the startup had to abandon some minor projects listed in the roadmap. According to Nebulas management, side projects will be frozen at least until the NAS token rate is restored.

One of the reasons was the market price kept going down. Another reason we decided to cut off the unimportant projects like third-party wallets [was that they are] not core to the main tech visions mentioned in the [Nebulas] white paper. So the dev team of that project was first impacted.

It is noteworthy that the decision became known only seven months after the project raised $ 60 million through a tokensale. Lou did not clarify whether the decision was due to possible financial difficulties.

Nevertheless, the project is gradually developing. So, at the end of last year, the company launched a testnet NOVA, designed to measure the quality of blockchain data.
