  1. Didn’t know about your security report, just subscribed to the blog. I like the first 3 articles of the September issue, but there’s a misleading statement in the 4th: “Unlike the Bitfinex and Mt. Gox cases, the DAO’s blockchain was successfully hacked, debunking the myth that it was unbreakable and could easily have formed the basis for a range of fintech applications.”

    It wasn’t the Ethereum blockchain, but the DAO’s smart contract that was hacked. That’s a huge difference!
