Happy Tuesday. There is a catfishing scam going around where older women are led to believe that they are in a relationship with Keanu Reeves. Don’t fall for it, no matter how much we’d all wish it were true.
Bitcoin is officially a legal tender in El Salvador and the country now holds 400 bitcoins, which is currently worth nearly $21 million. President Nayib Bukele said his government will continue buying up more.
The value of Bitcoin jumped 1.49% to over $52,000 per coin. September 7 is the official date for El Salvador to adopt Bitcoin along with the U.S. dollar as legal tender for all exchanges.
Of course, the learning curve for using Bitcoin must be overcome and many Salvadorans are skeptical but if it works as the government intends for it to work, it will save its citizens millions in financial fees from sending money to family abroad. The crypto community is charged up to see what the currency can really do!
Social media companies can no longer remove users or content on their own accord in Brazil. This is due to changes to a law known as the Internet Constitution.
YouTube, Twitter and Facebook will have to follow a series of procedures before they can delete accounts or content. They will have to first notify the user in question of their violation and then give them a clear roadmap of the disciplinary actions and their rights to contest.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has been a vocal critic of social media, particularly the companies’ restrictions on politicians. His office released a statement saying that this new law will defend freedom of expression and freedom “to defend contradictory views.”

A statue of Christopher Columbus will be replaced by a monument honoring Indigenous women in Mexico City. The statue was removed last October and relocated to a smaller park.
Christopher Columbus lead the colonization of Indigenous people in Mexico and the Americas during his quests to dominate the spice trade on behalf of European monarchs. Understandably, not everyone celebrates this. The Mayor of Mexico City announced the replacement statue of Indigenous women saying “to them we owe the history of our country, of our fatherland.”
Meanwhile, in Virginia, a 12-ton statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee will be removed tomorrow after the Virginia Supreme Court ruled that the state can remove it. A descendant of General Lee endorsed the statue removal, calling it “a no brainer.”
Facebook says its artificial intelligence went awry when it associated a video featuring Black men with primates.
