31:09 Solana Outage
1/ Solana Mainnet Beta encountered a large increase in transaction load which peaked at 400,000 TPS. These transactions flooded the transaction processing queue, and lack of prioritization of network-critical messaging caused the network to start forking.

59:50 Opensea Drama
Hey @opensea why does it appear @natechastain has a few secret wallets that appears to buy your front page drops before they are listed, then sells them shortly after the front-page-hype spike for profits, and then tumbles them back to his main wallet with his punk on it?

1:22:27 Toxic Maxi
I'm actually pretty tired of trying to play nicely with other ecosystems or trying to not be "toxic" (whatever that means these days).
Solana goes offline for 10+ hours and the CEO is on Twitter just FUD'ing Ethereum as some sort of damage control.
