And in another development in the block cain practical usage meme comes this news.

From coingeek

QUOTE
A new app has been launched for recording local weather and climate data on the Bitcoin SV (BSV) blockchain, in the latest example of an app developer using OP_RETURN transactions in a practical use case.

The app, WeatherSV, was put together by the team behind Australian IT services firm FNQComputers, which announced the launch of the app on Twitter. According to the team, the automated weather channels can be activated from 40,000 live stations and the climate data can be stored on the BSV chain forever.
The app provides a web interface for users to begin recording weather data on the blockchain, covering a comprehensive data set including temperature, humidity, wind speed and air pressure.

Notably, the tweet references notable Bitcoin developer Unwriter, nChain Global and Money Button for their contributions to the project. According to the WeatherSV website, the service relies on bitdb, datapay, Money Button, and Open Weather Map, as well as the BSV blockchain.

WeatherSV allows users to record weather data for their local area, written immutably to the BSV blockchain as a permanent data record. The data is indexed for easy retrieval, and can be searched as required.

With some 40,000 live weather stations covered in the network, the app offers potentially wide ranging access to local weather data. New channels can be created for A$5 (about $4), the A$1/month (about $0.71) to maintain the feed, which writes the data immutably to the blockchain as a permanent, searchable record.

So far, the site has already activated channels for Saint Johns, Antigua and Barbuda; Melbourne and Geelong West in Australia; Toronto and Vancouver in Canada; Seoul, South Korea; Panama; Mandalay, Myanmar; Frankfurt am Main, Germany; Oslo, Norway; Hangzhou, China; Rosario, Argentina; Santiago, Chile; Beersheba and Tel Aviv in Israel; and Algonquin, Carol Stream, Miami, Minneapolis, Newport Beach, Rogers, Prairieville, and Keene in the United States.

The app demonstrates the capabilities of developments on Bitcoin SV, which benefits from being the most effective environment for blockchain developers, both technologically and practically.

The WeatherSV site, which went live on Wednesday, is the latest app to be powered by the Bitcoin SV blockchain. It comes at a time of heightened development activity in and around the BSV ecosystem, with developers, merchants and consumers increasingly preferring BSV to alternative platforms.

With minimal processing fees, fast transaction times and superior technology to other blockchains, BSV remains the platform of choice for innovative app developers.


Interesting from two perspectives.
1. its an Australian firm ' from Cairns no less.
2. the data cannot be manipulated .

Yesterday on the country hour on ABC (yes, some old country farts still listen to it), the reporter announced for the first time ever, that block chain had been used as a payment
for a parcel of wool bound for China.
It seems that blockchain, complex as it is, is still easier than organising legitimate letters of credit.

. Since cryptocurrency exchanges, where people can trade currencies, are often hacked and lack the regulatory oversight of banks, most exchanges hold a significant portion of their money in a “cold” wallet that is not connected to the internet. This is transferred over to a “hot” wallet when needed. QaudrigaCX said that its missing money was in one such wallet.

“Transfers from the cold wallet to the hot wallet would occur when the hot wallet was running low and withdrawals were being sent to users. The transfer of coins from the cold wallet to the hot wallet was performed manually by Gerry Cotton,” Ms Robertson said.

Angry QaudrigaCX customers have been speculating that Mr Cotten faked his death after running into trouble. In January last year the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) froze five accounts linked to QuadrigaCX affecting 388 customers and worth Cdollars 25 million, citing confusion about who owned those savings. The funds were released by a court in Ontario on December 3, according to QuadrigaCX.
oh well, something happened, that's for sure

Two Celebrities Charged With Unlawfully Touting Coin Offerings

"Investors should be skeptical of investment advice posted to social media platforms, and should not make decisions based on celebrity endorsements," said Enforcement Division Co-Director Steven Peikin.

"Social media influencers are often paid promoters, not investment professionals, and the securities they’re touting, regardless of whether they are issued using traditional certificates or on the blockchain, could be frauds."
