NordVPN, as one of the most popular VPN service providers, has officially confirmed today that there has been a breach in its security. While the company maintains a ‘’zero logs’’ policy, the event raised many concerns that some of the user data might have been jeopardized as we are about to read further in the blockchain latest news today.
Many cryptocurrency users use the NordVPN Services and are now worried that their assets could be in danger so it’s worth taking additional care following the security breach. As a well-known VPN service provider, the company confirmed that it experienced a security breach. The admission comes right after the rumors surfaced that NordVPN had an expired internal private key that was exposed and apparently this allowed the attackers to spin out their own servers by imitating NordVPN.
According to the website, NordVPN maintains a zero log policy which means that they do not keep track, collect or share the users’ private information. However, this provides very little reassurance since the company has suffered a breach and back in 2018 one of the rented centers of the company in Finland was also accessed by an attacked after the center was active for over a month.
The company did reassure the users that the expired private key had nothing to do with the data breach and it couldn’t have been used to decrypt the VPN traffic on the servers. Interestingly enough, the company found out about the breach just a few months later but didn’t disclose anything until now ‘’ in order to be 100% sure that each component within our infrastructure is secure.’’
If the VPN traffic on the NordVPN servers was decrypted by an attacker, there’s little that can be done. However, the company claims this is not the case and it is also worth understanding that a lot of people use VPN services in order to access crypto exchanges in countries where trading is forbidden. A lot of users also take advantage of such services to protect their anonymity. When it comes to dealing with crypto, it is very important to do everything you can do guarantee your own security.

Algorand 2.0 Version Provides New Features For Developers
“The signing of the agreement between the FUB and the Algorand Foundation, signed at the Milan meeting of the European Blockchain Partnership of which Italy is co-president, once again confirms the international role assumed by our country on the subject and the attention of the MiSE towards emerging technologies such as the Blockchain also through the promotion of technical-scientific synergies on the subject.”Going into the future, 2020 will, in the end, prove as an essential year for the “Blockchain Wars” romanticized by Gavin Wood. Only the time will show if Algorand and the similar public blockchain networks can conquer something of the market share of Ethereum before the pending release of the Serenity upgrade of Ethereum. Algorand 2.0 is a compelling start to serving the mainstream world, as opposed to serving only the cryptocurrency world, and at the very least it should poke the interest of developers in the decentralized finance sphere searching to expand the pioneering of the developing open finance movement of Ethereum.

''We’ve had so many professors reach out to to learn more about blockchain and see how it applies to their field.’’The classes only a small chunk of the story of the university's commitement to blockchain technology so this year there were other analyses made regarding the student-run crypto clubs and other schools that leverage data from google scholar attributions. Among the students, there is distrust in the current financial system as well which is feeding the curiosity around crypto and it cuts across the disciplines. More than two-thirds of the students describe the current financial systems as unstable and inefficient. More than 34 percent of students surveyed expressed interest in taking the course on crypto or blockchain compared to about 28 percent back in 2019. There are twice as many people that took a class on the topic compared to the number reported from 2018.
