Tsunami affected in Tonga receive donations in bitcoin

2022.01.18 07:47 yokesh351 Tsunami affected in Tonga receive donations in bitcoin


The former deputy of the Kingdom of Tonga, Mata'i'ulua 'i Fundamotu, known as Lord Fusitu'a and promoter of a Bitcoin Law for that country, made public the address of a bitcoin (BTC) wallet to receive donations and thus help those affected by the natural disaster that occurred on those oceanic islands.
Last Saturday, January 15, a submarine volcano located in front of the islands that make up Tonga, erupted, causing waves of more than 1.2 meters . The event produced floods that affected, among other areas, the city of Nuku'alofa, capital of that nation located in the South Pacific.
Given the magnitude of the tsunami, Twitter user and bitcoiner suggested that Fusitu'a accept donations in bitcoin to help the affected population.“You need to set up a bitcoin wallet for Tonga and receive [donations] through the Lightning Network. I have learned so much about you and your nation through BTC and Twitter,”

After a couple of hours, Fusitu'a responded by leaving the bitcoin address to receive the BTC. So far it can be seen that the address has received a total of 0.19385171 BTC , which represents about USD 8,000 at the current market price.
Until now, the seriousness of the damage caused by the tsunami is unknown, largely because the country is cut off from communication. However, the speaker of the Tonga House of Representatives, Lord Fakafanua, said, according to CNN, that the country requires immediate assistance in providing its citizens with clean water and food.
Some experts estimate that the scale of the devastation could be immense. There is data indicating that the volcanic eruption was the largest since the 1991 explosion at Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines.
bitcoin and tonga
As mentioned at the beginning, Tonga is trying to promote a Bitcoin Law similar to the one in El Salvador .
Fusitu'a, who is currently the president of the Union of Parliamentarians against Corruption, presented a 5-step plan to bitcoinize that country on January 14,
In addition to the bureaucratic paths that the text must follow to be approved by the different instances, they have also suggested the potential use of Tonga's geothermal energy , in the same way that El Salvador does for Bitcoin mining
The event of the volcanic eruption, the tsunami and the donations in BTC, could work as an incentive to accelerate the process that would allow the leading cryptocurrency develpment to become legal tender in the nation located in Oceania.
Bitcoin, an option to make donations
Just as Tonga is receiving donations in bitcoin, other international organizations and social organizations have taken advantage of the advantages offered by the Bitcoin network to request donations in support of different humanitarian initiatives.
In that sense, at the beginning of 2021 the American Cancer Society began to receive bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. The intention was to help restart crucial research to find new discoveries and improve treatments.
For its part, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) announced a cryptocurrency fund to support open source technology for children around the world.

2022.01.18 07:47 NAz00r Honest question: do Lichess puzzles seem more obtuse?

Straight from the title.
I'm rated 1977 in chess.com puzzles but when I switch over to Lichess I find that the puzzles seem to be much more confusing or their purpose is not clear at all sometimes. I rarely experience this in chess.com.
I do play on both platforms, and play Lichess much more casually than I do chess.com. I play chess puzzles much more often on chess.com though.
before I get mobbed by the Lichess good chess.c*m bad gang, can I honestly know your opinions? is this inherent by design or am I missing something?

2022.01.18 07:47 AspectWrong391 Partidas de nacimiento/defunción?

Me decidí a iniciar la aventura de la ciudadanía tana, en principio al menos quiero ir juntando la documentación.. Pero no sé si no me da la cabeza o el sistema no es del todo intuitivo..
Hace como 10 años precisé una partida, fui al centro comunal de la zona y con un par de datos la conseguí.. Hace poco fui con el mismo objetivo y me dijeron que sólo se atienden online esos temas por la pandemia, me pasó una página, y listo.
Entro, y para solicitar una partida me pide datos que no sé de dónde sacar.. Fecha de fallecimiento, número de folio(wtf), y en las de nacimiento dice que si la persona no nació en mvdeo entonces la partida no aparecería... Pero me devuelven la plata en tal caso? Porque preciso varias que no sé dónde nacieron..
Lo único que sé de mi viejo, por ejemplo, es que nació en noviembre de 1940, su número de cédula, y que falleció en junio 2002 en Mvdeo, no recuerdo el día, fue 24 o 25, y ni idea dónde nació.. Con esos datos tengo chance de conseguir o ni a palos? De mi madre sé lo mismo plus que casi seguro nació en Mvdeo.. Hay algún lugar que dé partidas sin tanta vuelta?

2022.01.18 07:46 Remarkable-Mud-4015 Feeling Dishonest. Is this normal?

Hi everyone.
Two weeks ago I came out as bisexual to my mum and dad, then my whole family and friends. I have received nothing but love and support from everyone. I have also definitely felt less stressed since coming out and feel much more like I'm being true to myself. At the same time, because I kept this hidden, even from myself for so long, I have been suffering from intrusive thoughts that maybe I've made a mistake by coming out and that I'm being dishonest about who I really am. I also worry people around me think I'm just going through a phase of my OCD, where I've convinced myself of this, despite the fact that thoughts about my bisexuality aren't harmful to me. My family members have denied they think this, but I still worry.
These thoughts aren't that persistent, but they definitely pop up now and then.
I know I'm definitely attracted to both men and women and that this could be linked to my OCD and anxiety, but I just wondered if anyone else felt like this after they came out? If they felt like they were an imposter almost?
Sorry if this was confusing.
