Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is coming to VR

During Facebook’s Connect event, the company announced that GTA fans will be able to experience Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in VR.

Soon, players will be able to talk through the streets of Los Santos, San Fierro, and Las Venturas in VR via Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 headset. The VR edition of San Andreas is currently in development, and similar to Resident Evil 4 VR, it will be exclusively available to the Oculus Quest 2 headset.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg described the VR version of San Andreas, "This new version of what I think is one of the greatest games ever made will offer players an entirely new way to experience this iconic open world in virtual reality."

If you’ve never played the classic game, San Andreas is the fifth main game in the Grand Theft Auto series and the best-selling game on the PS2 after its debut in 2004.

Twitter adds new Twitter Spaces recording feature

Twitter is beginning to roll out a new Twitter Space feature that will allow its hosts to record and share their broadcasts through tweets.

The new recording feature in Twitter Spaces will allow hosts to record a Twitter Space conversation and be able to tweet the recording. This will allow individuals that missed the Twitter Spaces to be able to replay the broadcast once it ends. With the new feature whenever individuals tweets to share and promote Twitter Spaces, it will no longer have a note that the Space had ended but instead will include a link to the recording. Participants within the Twitter Spaces will be notified and indicate that the Space will be recorded with a new icon when they join the live broadcast.

The new feature will allow Twitter Spaces hosts to have access to the recordings for 30 days after the live broadcast for sharing purposes or they have the option to delete the recording at any time. Twitter in their updated Twitter Spaces FAQ has explained that they will keep the recordings of Spaces for up to 120 days to check for any abusive or hateful content within the Twitter Spaces.

As of right now, the new Twitter Space record feature is available to a limited number of Twitter Space hosts on iOS. The feature is not available for Twitter Space hosts on Android, but it will slowly become available for all hosts "within a few weeks."

Crypto Special

Shiba Inu holder $8,000 into turns $5.7 billion

A crypto wallet shows an investor made an $8,000 Shiba Inu purchase in August 2020, not long after its debut, and is now a crypto billionaire.

The trades began last August, when the investor bought 70,200,003,107,594 SHIB, according to the individuals crypto wallet. At the time, Shiba Inu was trading at 0.000000000189, and as of today, the cryptocurrency is trading around 0.00007.

Today, that same wallet’s 70 trillion SHIB is now worth $5.7 billion, an extremely impressive gain of over 7 million percent in just 400 days, making it one of the greatest individual trades of all time.

Over the past few days, Shiba Inu has hit new record highs multiple times, even as the majority of other cryptocurrencies were down. According to CoinMarketCap, Shiba Inu is currently the 10th largest cryptocurrency, only one spot behind rival Dogecoin.

Alchemy raises $250M in Series C funding round

San Francisco-based blockchain web services company Alchemy has announced a $250 million Series C fundraising round that brings the company’s current valuation to $3.5 billion.

It comes only a few months after its $80 million Series B in April, which valued the startup at $505 million. Andreessen Horowitz led the round, along with Pantera Capital, Redpoint, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Coatue, DFJ, and Lee Fixel’s Addition.

Alchemy was founded back in 2017 but didn’t launch until August of last year. The company describes itself as a platform for developers who are looking to build reliable decentralized applications based on blockchains such as Ethereum using “Web 3” technology.

In its blog post announcement, Alchemy wrote, “Alchemy is doing for blockchain and Web3 what AWS did for the internet. It provides developers with the tools they need to easily and efficiently create mainstream blockchain applications, helping them turn their ideas into wildly successful businesses.”
