If you have been watching some of the more popular YouTube crypto channels, than you might have noticed that they often will be promoting some of “lending platform”. Most of the time these Youtubers will be getting kick backs from the schemes in the form of affiliate commission. The most well know of these Ponzi schemes was Bitconnect which claimed to offer around 1% per day interest. The Bitconnect Ponzi was heavily promoted by Youtubers and Redditors.
When I first got online in the year 2000, most people were still accessing the internet through a dial-up connection, this meant that websites could not afford to waste that much bandwidth on junk that was irrelevant to show the information that the webmaster wanted the end user to see. How Did Web Pages Get so Bulky?

We all know that the TOR network is always in need for more nodes, for the ever-increasing amount of users connecting but with average network capacity being nearly double what is required, which means TOR needs more location rather than just tons of bandwidth. The problem at the moment with TOR, is that a government agency only needs to compromise a few server providers (OVH, Hetzner and Scaleway) in order to be able to track a large portion of the TOR network as TOR only avoids having multiple relay nodes in the same /16 IP block from being part of the same circuit, allowing an attacking to easily to perform timing analysis on more than 50% of the network if they compromise, just three hosts.
As computers have become more powerful and web browsers have started to gain better support for video codecs (Thanks to Cisco OpenH264), many websites have started to move away from GIF’s and towards loopable silent videos. This is due to the more efficient compression than H.264 or AVC is able to provide, this is because that codec is designed for video streaming, unlike GIFs’ which are just designed for a few frames of animation (GIFs’ were never designed for video clips, but that is what they ended up being used for after the age of broadband).
