We Built This City

The President of El Salvador says that he is planning a Bitcoin City that will be powered by a volcano. 

Recall that El Salvador made history by becoming the first country to accept Bitcoin as legal tender. President Nayib Bukele also led the country to invest in the cryptocurrency at the same time and now he wants to mine more. With a volcano-powered mine. 

President Bukele says that construction on the city will begin next year and it will have commercial spaces, entertainment, restaurants and an airport and none of those places will have value added tax (VAT). It will be near the Conchagua volcano. Wikipedia tells us that there are some active areas in the region but no confirmed historical eruptions. Still, yikes! It’s a volcano.

Adele has single-handedly made a major change to Spotify by asking the streaming service to remove the shuffle button as the default listening option from artists’ albums. 

This means that Spotify won’t play the songs on an album at random but rather play them in the order the artists intended. 

Adele, whose latest album 30 rocketed the charts in its first weekend, Tweeted this request: “We don't create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. Thank you Spotify for listening.” 

Spotify replied, “anything for you.”
