The SENS Research Foundation, a nonprofit research fund to combat aging, received a donation of $ 2.4 million from Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin. All funds were received in the Ether, the fund reported in a press release.

SENS Research Foundation was founded in 2009 by Aubrey de Gray, a British gerontologist, who is researching rejuvenating therapies to extend the biological limit of people's lives. He is also the author of the popular science book "Ending Aging", which addresses the issue of a complete victory over aging medicine in the next few decades.

I've been a fan of Aubrey's work since I first read Ending Aging when I was a teenager, and I am happy to have been blessed with the opportunity to personally support SENS's efforts. Their focus on creating solutions to the diseases of aging, one of the greatest problems facing humanity, is very much in line with my goal to positively impact the lives of millions of people around the world.

At the end of 2017, at the Virtual Futures conference in London, Aubrey de Gray said that the first person who will live to be 1000 years old will not just be born in some hypothetical future, but has already been born. He also believes that science will find a way to improve the quality of therapy aimed at eliminating age-related changes in the body within the next 20 years.

It is noteworthy that earlier the SENS Research Foundation received two large donations totaling $ 2 million in bitcoins from the Pineapple Fund - covered by the secret of an anonymous charitable foundation, which, among other things, provided financial support to the Internet Archive and a number of other organization.

The developers of the blockchain platform Streamr presented a solution for scaling the Ethereum network called Monoplasma. It is reported by CoinDesk.

The creators of the project claim that the technology will help solve the problem of repeat payments from one address to many others. Monoplasma, in their opinion, will be useful to developers of decentralized applications focused on the distribution of dividends, staking and repeated airdrops.

The head of Streamr, Henry Pinkala, also demonstrated fake token airdrop for 200 thousand Ethereum addresses in a test network using Monoplasma.

You can receive money, but you can’t send back the other way. That would be like trying to send a message to your TV.

Thus, Monoplasma payment channels are reliably protected from the attack of double waste.

Streamr intends to use a new solution for the mass sale of user data on the blockchain, allowing the buying company to settle accounts with many users at once.
