https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-dev/2019-April/016811.html

This one is a very geeky joke. For the uninitiated, Bitcoin’s price is set by the free market, based on supply and demand. While many things can be improved by code in Bitcoin, setting minimum price is beyond the possibilities. Although there are projects that aim to establish so called stable crypto coins, that don’t fluctuate or just very little and tied to the USD.

New Fragrance: Vector by Lockheed Martin

Deep space is not for the faint of heart, and neither is this bold, new fragrance for the people of Earth. Humans have always dreamt of exploring our universe and today we make part of that dream a reality. Created by the engineers at Lockheed Martin, this out-of-this-world scent blends metallic notes to create a clean scent with a sterile feel, balanced by subtle, fiery undertones that burn off like vapor in the atmosphere.
