We caught up with Gabe Leydon, CEO of MZ (formerly MachineZone) at the Crypto Invest Summit in LA earlier this month. Satori, an extension of MZ’s real-time streaming platform, is an open data project that aims to be the first platform to extract the world’s feeds of public information from siloed sources and publish them in an easy format for developers to search and edit.
A couple of weeks ago, a number of members of the Hedera hashgraph community came together in LA for the Crypto Invest Summit. Matt Sorum, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer formerly of Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, The Cult, and Kings of Chaos, was on hand to talk on-stage about his latest venture, Artbit.
Currently, Hedera is conducting an institutional fundraising round, limited to whitelisted institutional investors, to launch the platform and accelerate development of distributed apps. A subsequent crowdsale to accredited investors may follow.

In the weeks since our launch, we are seeing an increasing number of sophisticated scammers trying to take advantage of our community. These scams range from emails to Twitter accounts to fake websites, and the most sophisticated of them are targeted phishing scams, using social engineering.
It’s a wonderful bit of irony that the Fiddler on the Roof character singing the above is named ‘Hodel’.
