Sandbox integrates World of Women avatars claiming "Diversity, inclusivity & interoperability in the Metaverse! You can now use your World of Women in The Alpha Season 2! You can now play with Snoop Dogg and World of Women's Avatars." Sounds really weird. If not creepy. Sandbox raises an interesting question: "Which NFT collection should be interoperable next?"

  • ES6 JavaScript - ECMA pronounced ehk-ma decides the standard for javascript. And that's why the newest version of JavaScript is called ES6, ecmascript 6. symbol is new in ES6.
  • JavaScript - Dynamic Typing - Don't have to declare types right away.
  • JavaScript - Primitive Types (no methods, immutable): undefined, null, boolean, number, string, symbol. 
  • Toast message : a temporary message, for example display error.
  • array can store data with different types.
  •  HTTP status code

    • Typecasting: changing a variable from one time to another. 
    • Coercion: explicit versus implicit. We need to watch out for this in JavaScript. Often it doesn't work as we would expect. 
    • Comparison and testing. Double equal versus triple equal. Double equal will coerce the types then test. Triple equal will require the type to match as well. This too can be counter intuitive, unexpected in JavaScript. There are also quirky JavaScript equality issues. JavaScript quirky equality issues https://github.com/dorey/JavaScript-Equality-Table
  • HTML DOM : Web dev Document Object Model (DOM) turns html documents into a tree like structure of nodes. nodes include img, body and the element node can contain attribute nodes such as src, text. A common task is traversing DOM elements.

What are Stablecoins

Warning: Please read our disclaimer. Do your own research. Our contents are informational purpose only. Even the congress is yet to understand and fully study the use and effect of stablecoins. We are not able to verify external resources like these below.

Decrypto guide to stablecoins 

https://decrypt.co/resources/stablecoins

Coindesk : "stablecoins are used for trading, lending and borrowing, but the report added that these tokens may eventually become a means of payment for businesses and households. Another footnote specified that the report is not addressing any potential stablecoin issues under federal securities or commodities laws, but the report itself did acknowledge the SEC and CFTC's authority to oversee stablecoins that meet the provisions of these laws. The legislation would apply to stablecoin issuers that are headquartered in the U.S., operate stablecoins that people in the U.S. can access or otherwise have"
