    IT’S taken him 15 months to get here but Thomas Tuchel is finally reaching the end of his tether at Chelsea. Wednesday’s 4-2 home defeat by Arsenal was too much for even the genial German to take. 5Thomas Tuchel must be baffled at how erratic his Chelsea squad is after they slumped 4-2 at home to Arsenal on WednesdayCredit: Rex 5Antonio Rudiger wants out, while age might be creeping up on fellow centre-back Thiago Silva, despite Chelsea's Bernabeu win last weekCredit: Reuters And his tetchy post-match interview illustrated just how much trying to maintain order in this West London madhouse is taking its toll. For Tuchel could not fathom how a team which had performed so brilliantly against Real Madrid in the Bernabeu could be so bloody awful exactly one week later. Yet for as long as most people can remember, Chelsea have always been a basket case of a football club. From the days of Ken Bates buying them for a quid and installing electric fences, all the way through to the sinister opulence of Roman Abramovich. Read more...
    VIDEO3:1303:13Bitfniex CTO: Plan to 'keep increasing' transparency around tetherStreet Signs Europe PARIS — Crypto firm Tether is planning to reduce its holdings of commercial debt in its reserves, as the issuer of the world's most-used "stablecoin" continues to face questions about what its digital currency is actually backed by. Last year, Tether revealed that it held some cash but also bought a large amount of commercial paper, which is short-term corporate debt. This raised concerns given that Tether does not disclose exactly which companies it holds commercial paper from, and where those entities are based. But the company has been reducing the amount of commercial paper in its reserves. In the fourth quarter of 2021, commercial paper made up just over 30% of Tether's total reserves, down from more than 44% in the third quarter. "Over time we will keep reducing the commercial paper, we aren't finished yet with the reduction," Paolo Ardoino, chief technology officer of Tether and affiliated cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, told CNBC on Wednesday at the Paris Blockchain Week Summit. Ardoino said Tether has moved the money...

    New York (CNN Business)Regulators have long been circling cryptocurrencies. Now they have a new target: stablecoins.A Monday report from the President's Working Group on Financial Markets, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency urged Congress to slap bank-like rules on the assets. The selling point of stablecoins is in the name: their value is meant to fluctuate less than other digital currencies because they are pegged to a real-world asset — in many cases, the US dollar.But even with this connection to fiat currencies or commodities, regulators believe the risk of stablecoins not actually being stable, hurting investors and undermining financial security is still too high, according to a press release from the Treasury Department. How stablecoin is different than other cryptocurrencies ... and how its not This is a significant move as stablecoin issuers and providers have been called out by regulators before. For example, Tether, the largest issuer of the assets, attracted criticism from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, which asserted that the company didn't fully back their stablecoins with US...
    Michigan state Rep. Jewell Jones, D-Inkster, had his bond revoked by a judge and was taken into custody on Tuesday after he violated bond terms for a third time. Jones was previously out on bond after an alleged drunken driving crash occurred earlier this year in Livingston County. "I am one to believe in graduated sanctions and not jailing this man until sentencing, but I am going to revoke bond at this time," said Livingston County Circuit Judge Michael Hatty, according to the Detroit News. RETIRED LT. COL. ALEXANDER VINDMAN SAYS GEN. MILLEY 'MUST RESIGN' IF HIS SECRET CALLS WITH CHINA OCCURRED Jones, who is 26-years-old, has an alcohol tether, which detects the presence of alcohol in a person's sweat. According to court records, Jones' tether showed alcohol in his system at three different times on September 3. In addition, he also tampered with the tether on September 6. "This defendant’s actions — from his conduct during the charged crimes through each of the three bond violations — show that he believes that, as a person who writes our laws, that...

According to Coindesk, “This would be an industry first, reaching far beyond the already conditionally issued OCC banking charters for Anchorage, Paxos and other crypto-native financial services firms.

    An embattled Michigan state representative defended spending campaign funds at a Dearborn strip club, claiming, “We have to meet people where they’re at sometimes.” Democrat State Rep. Jewell Jones, who was arrested in April for allegedly driving drunk and fighting with state troopers, spent $221 at the Pantheion Club in March, the Detroit Free Press reported. “We have (to) meet people where they’re at some times … #HOLLA,” Jones responded to a reporter, the paper said. He added the establishment, which bills itself as “#1 in topless entertainment,” has “great lamb chops.” Campaign finance records showed Jones also spent $700 at a Las Vegas restaurant that same month. A court recently ruled Jones violated his bond conditions for a second time over an alcohol-monitoring tether, WDIV reported: This was the second violation of his bond and he avoided jail time once again. In his previous bond hearing he was given an alcohol tether that would tell the court if he was drinking. He has to pay for the tether or it will shut off and he’d be violating his bond...
    Tether Holdings Limited, responsible for the issuance of the stablecoin Tether (USDT), responded to a story published by the Bloomberg media, in which they indicated that the United States Department of Justice had opened an investigation against the company for alleged bank fraud. In that sense, Tether Holdings Limited indicated that it is a maneuver by the media to “repackage outdated claims as ‘news’.” They also maintain that it is part of a campaign to discredit Tether, according to a statement published today, July 26. Among other things, they ensure that they maintain a continuous communication channel with the Department of Justice as part of the commitment acquired with the authorities, based on transparency. “We are proud of our role as industry leaders in promoting cooperation with government authorities in the US and around the world,” the document highlights.

    Andrew O'Hehir - Sophia Tesfaye November 4, 2020 9:15AM (UTC) None of us have seen a year like 2020 — and now it has finally snapped the tether that seemed to hold it to the realm of reality. After a relatively calm Election Day, leading into a nail-biter evening that left the result very much in doubt, President Trump did exactly what many observers feared he might do, prematurely declaring victory over former vice president Joe Biden, even though millions of votes in several important states remain uncounted. It was a rambling, incoherent and extraordinary speech even by Trump's standards, delivered in an extraordinary setting — the East Room of the White House, rather than a campaign headquarters at a Washington hotel, as would be traditional for an incumbent president running for re-election. Whether it represents a genuine attempt to subvert democracy or was just an example of "Trump being Trump" and letting off some steam depends on one's perspective. Vice President Mike Pence attempted to assert the latter interpretation, arriving on stage after Trump had concluded and making relatively normal...
    One billion USDT leaves Tron As Tether’s technical director Paolo Ardoino explained to The Block, “a cryptocurrency exchange wants to trade some of its TRC20 tethers in ERC20 “. According to media information, it is probably the Binance platform that would have liked to migrate its TRC20s. The USDTs leaving the Tron blockchain correspond to 8% of total Tether supply. As Tether tweeted, the total USDT stock is not changing. This brings the amount of USDT on Ethereum to $ 8.5 billion, compared to $ 3.30 billion at its competitor Tron. It is possible that this transfer is due to a request from Binance users, who wish to favor the Ethereum blockchain rather than that of Tron. ????

The integration was announced last May, and it has just been completed. The maneuver should partially relieve the Ethereum network, which is particularly congested at the moment....
    The event of a killer asteroid impacting Earth has been a fear for centuries, but scientists believe they have a plan to mitigate such a collision. Using a tethered diversion, the team proposes utilizing long cables to connect the potentially hazardous object with a small asteroid nearby. The center of mass would change when the two are tied together, resulting in the larger asteroid being flung to a safer orbit. The asteroid Bennu was used as a test subject in computer simulations to calculate the dynamics of such a tether system for a variety of different initial conditions, concluding that it would be feasible for use as a planetary defense system.
