Winklevii vs Charlie Shrem Lawsuit Settled
The Winklevoss twins’ suit against Charlie Shrem has finally been settled, according to a document filed by the Court of the Southern District of the State of New York. Judge Jed S. Rakoff was informed the parties had reached a settlement, but there are no details about the arrangement. The parties still have 30 days to report if the settlement fails to reopen the case and go to trial.

Lightning Network channels are losing part of their funds, confused users posting on social networks reveal.
