Peer Launches Augmented Reality-Based 3D Social Network On iOS
The ambitious social metaverse and Web3 startup Peer has hit a major milestone with the launch of its next-generation social app, available to download on iOS devices from today. The Peer app is a novel social experience created using augmented reality technology and a proprietary ecosystem that enables people to explore and interact with the world around them in new ways, the startup explains. “All the world’s a game and Peer makes everyone a player,” said Peer founder and Chief Executive Tony Tran. “Get ready for a new kind of social network that’s all about fun, joy and gamification at its core.” According to Peer, the app combines geo-location technology with adaptive 3D maps to create a “game-like experience” of the physical world. With Peer, users will be able to customize and share maps of their own, unique social world, pinning their stories, memories and moments to real-world locations for others to find. To understand what Peer is really about, try to think of it as a social network experienced in AR graphics overlaid across the real world. With it, users will be able to explore their physical location and locate digital objects and information that’s posted within their surroundings. Peer will make it possible to overlay 3D graphics on top of the real world, integrating new experiences into our everyday lives. Unlike other social networks which simply focus on getting people to scroll through a newsfeed with their eyes glued to their device, Peer genuinely wants to get people out and about, interacting with real people and locations in the physical world. As part of this approach, users will be incentivized to post and explore digital content that’s tied to specific geographic locations. Someone who’s feeling hungry will be able to use Peer to facilitate their search for a bite to eat. Simply open up the Peer map and look for nearby restaurants, and you’ll find directions overlaid onto the real world to make it easier to find them. As that person arrives at their chosen eatery, they may be able to pick up a digital coupon posted outside by the owner of the business, giving them a 10% discount on their meal. At the same time, the user will be able to check reviews from previous customers, helping them to decide if they want to give the menu a try. Businesses will be able to use Peer to enhance their marketing efforts in creative ways. As an example, Peer created a video showing how an aquarium or dinosaur museum might get the attention of visitors by creating marine animals that swim across the skies, or virtual dinosaurs that roam around outside, enticing people to come and take a closer look. As Peer explains, the Peer app is designed to enable discovery, community-building and other kinds of real-life activities. It will act as a creative canvas anyone can use to design and develop digital experiences that enhance our lives in the real world. It’s an ambitious idea that has the potential to achieve one of the major promises of the metaverse, morphing digital elements into physical reality. Peer said the Peer app is available to download on iOS devices now from the Apple App Store, and will be joined by an Android version that’s due to launch later this year. The company is also reported to be working on an AR headset that will make it possible to experience Peer in the most immersive way. In the meantime, iOS users can expect to see additional features arrive in Peer soon. “In the coming months, we will deepen AI integration and deploy features that are sure to spark a new era of global interconnectedness,” Tran promised. “No social network puts the world in your hands like Peer.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Judge Throws Out Class Action Suit Against Bitfinex And Tether
Laura Swain, the Chief Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District Of New York, has dismissed a class action lawsuit against USDT issuer Tether and its sister company Bitfinex. The lawsuit was brought on by plaintiffs who alleged Tether was falsely advertising the USDT stablecoin. A Big Win For Tether And Bitfinex The ruling is being seen as a significant win for the two entities and was announced in a blog post published on Tether’s official website. The post stated that the Chief Judge delivered a comprehensive and incisive 6-page decision, including an order to dismiss the class action lawsuit against the two entities, adding that it lacked merit. The post stated, “Today, Chief Judge Laura Taylor Swain of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District Of New York issued a comprehensive and incisive 6-page decision that included an order dismissing the meritless class action lawsuit filed by Matthew Anderson and Shawn Dolifka against Tether and Bitfinex companies in its entirety.” The lawsuit was brought on by plaintiffs Shawn Dolifka and Matthew Anderson. The plaintiffs claimed that Tether had falsely advertised its USDT stablecoin being backed in a 1:1 ratio by the U.S. dollar. However, the court did not buy their argument. Tether added that the fact that the entirety of the lawsuit was dismissed at such an early stage showed that the allegation against it and Bitfinex were devoid of any merit. Tether And Bitfinex CTO Reacts The verdict sparked a wave of reactions from the crypto ecosystem. Paolo Ardoino, Tether, and Bitfinex CTO took to X (formerly Twitter) and expressed his satisfaction with the ruling. “Tether and Bitfinex Win Comprehensive Legal Victory as U.S. District Court Dismisses Class Action Lawsuit The Court correctly held that the plaintiffs’ complaint lacked any “plausible allegations of injury” because it includes no facts showing that “USDT had a diminished actual value at all.” Prominent Bitcoin lawyer Stuart Hoegner applauded the Tether team’s efforts and broke down the court ruling in a long thread on X. The Court Ruling The court gave several reasons for throwing out the lawsuit. It stated that the plaintiffs had not provided sufficient facts in the case nor mentioned the buying or selling price of USDT for the plaintiffs. The court further added that market data showed that USDT still maintains its peg with the USD at $1, and even if there were misrepresentations from the defendant’s side, there was no evidence that showed USDT had lost its value. The Complaint In Question The case stems from a complaint filed in 2021 when the plaintiffs, Shawn Dolifika and Matthew Anderson, claimed that Tether’s statement that its USDT was backed by the U.S. dollar in a 1:1 peg was false. According to the complaint, Tether and Bitfinex did not maintain adequate reserves for the USDT in circulation. Furthermore, the complaint also alleged that the reserves did not contain USD as advertised but were a mix of assets such as overcollateralized loans and undisclosed commercial paper. “Defendants did not maintain the same amount of reserves as Tether tokens in circulation. At times, Defendants had no reserves whatsoever. Further, these reserves did not contain U.S. dollars, as Tether suggested, but were a mix of other assets, such as overcollateralized loans and other undisclosed commercial paper.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Bitcoin Proprietor Suffers from a $100k Loss Due to Public Wireless Network
The 36-year-old Austrian man logged into a public wireless network in the nation’s capital, Vienna and lost a considerable sum of $117k Bitcoins, equivalent to over 100k Euros. Investigations opened by the Austrian Police seem to suggest that the victim’s account may have been hacked prior to logging on through the restaurant’s unsecured network. This narrative unfortunately coincides with the already growing fear of security for such sensitive digital commodities like Bitcoin and Ethereum as they are gaining more and more traction every day. This situation is very reminiscent of the most infamous loss of Bitcoins, occurring in 2014, and involving the now former cryptocurrency exchange, Mt Gox. Because of a security breach on its platform, a major amount of cryptocurrency was stolen, leading to the business collapsing. Investigations into data manipulation and embezzlement were conducted on the former CEO of Mt Gox, Mark Karpelès, who is being tried in Japan over the allegations. Exchanges still rife with security breaches The recent security breach should remind you of a breach that occurred in August of last year. Approximately $65 was stolen from the Bitfinex exchange which left ripples in Bitcoin’s value on the crypto market, with prices lowering by nearly 20%. In turn, customers took to social media to inform others that their accounts had been drained of funds, dealing a massive blow to Bitcoin’s image. Bitcoin Soldiers On Despite the numerous security breaches putting crypto subscribers at risk of losing their much-valued funds, Bitcoin has continued to grow, reaching a new high of over $8000. This is very encouraging for new, potential investors who want to throw their money into the crypto market and a blessing for those that have already placed their trust in cryptocurrency.

Man in Michigan prosecuted for selling Bitcoin
Bitcoin regulation has been a hot topic in the news recently, with Vietnam banning cryptocurrencies, and South Korea deciding to regulate Bitcoin as a commodity, rather than a currency. But recent news from the USA shows that the authorities are also cracking down on unlicensed individuals who deal in cryptocurrencies. A man from Michigan, named Bradley Anthony Stetkiw, has been charged with operating an unlicensed money transmitting business. The charges have been filed in a US district court, and many of the details read like the story from an espionage movie. Stetkiw was caught as the result of a sting operation, carried out by federal agents. These agents met Stetkiw several times and purchased over $55,000 worth of Bitcoins as a result of these meetings. Stetkiw also brokered deals with out of state sellers. Stetkiw gave himself a nom de plume, 'SaltandPepper', and would meet his clients at Tim Horton's restaurant. He also used the website LocalBitcoins to aid in his various transactions. He met the undercover agents a reported six times, with the agents acquiring 126 Bitcoin. According to the authorities, he did all this without being in possession of the proper licence for currency trading. According to reports, Stetkiw stressed to the agents that he did not want to know what they were going to do with the Bitcoin they had purchased. This was because he did not want to knowingly sell to people who were engaged in any criminal activity. What will transpire as a result of the case remains to be seen, but it highlights the continuing issue of acceptance of Bitcoin as a valid currency. The association of cryptocurrency with criminal activities is an issue which is likely to keep arising over the coming years, as government embrace the economic growth that cryptocurrency can bring, while also trying to minimise illegal activities.
