• Ethereum network burns $395K ETH per hour after London upgrade..

Approximately 2.3 ETH is being burnt every minute through the new transaction fee mechanism introduced in Ethereum’s London upgrade on August 5.

The highly anticipated London hard fork went live on Wednesday this week, ushering in the EIP-1559 upgrade that adjusted gas fees. Part of that adjustment introduced a mechanism that burns some of the base fees collected.

The total amount of ETH burnt since the upgrade went live around 14 hours ago is roughly 3,395 ETH according to the various counters available. Etherchain reports an average burn rate of 2.36 ETH per minute. This equates to $6,596 per minute, or around $395,000 of ETH going up in metaphorical smoke every hour at current prices.

An alternative counter called Ultrasound.money reports a total burn of 3,390 ETH worth a whopping $9.5 million at the current ETH price around $2,800. The tracker reports that the popular NFT marketplace OpenSea is the top ETH burner with 374 ETH, or just over $1 milliondollars, destroyed since the upgrade was launched.

In second place was Uniswap’s version 2 which had burned 263 ETH, or $740,000, at the time of writing. Uniswap founder, Hayden Adams, commented on the burn rate stating that if things continue at the same rate, the protocol could burn as much as 350,000 ETH, or almost $1 billion per year.

The Bankless DeFi newsletter threw around some figures in an attempt to predict the impact on future supply. Since the base fee is anywhere between 25% and 75% of the total transaction fee, manual calculation and predictions are difficult.

It modeled burn rates within this range using data on fees generated in 2021 and concluded:

“Annualizing these figures, this means that between 800,000 — 2.4 million ETH is projected to be burned in 2021.”

When combined with the reduction in block reward issuance from the merge to proof-of-stake, the fee burning could lead to Ethereum having a deflationary supply, which would see it fulfill the increasingly used meme of “ultrasound money”.

boil is a subcutaneous inflammation. It looks like a big pimple-filled pimple and usually develops in the face (neck, neck), back, armpits, perineal area or buttocks. Most often, this button appears when a hair follicle (the base of the hair) becomes infected.
When a patient has multiple boils at the same time, it is called furunculosis. If the buttons are all located in the same region, it is an anthrax.

Causes of boiling

Particularly painful, the boil is actually an infection caused by a bacterium called Staphylococcus aureus. In any case, it is the multiplication of this bacterium that explains the appearance of the boil. On the other hand, there are several ways to contract the bacteria, and also several factors that promote inflammation. Some people carry the bacteria, but do not catch boils.
At the base of the hairs, there is a small bag called the pilosebaceous apparatus, which contains the sebaceous gland, the hair follicle (hair root) and the hair-pulling muscle. When this "bag" is touched by the bacteria, a boil is formed, which is actually a simple infection, with the usual symptoms associated with it (pus, redness, heat, swelling, etc.).

Who is affected by the boil? What are the risk factors?

Anyone can catch one or more boils for the following reasons:
  • Ingrown hair
  • Splinter or other foreign body in the skin
  • Cuts or scratches that are not properly disinfected
  • Sweat glands clogged
  • Acne buttons not or poorly treated (for example, if you try to pierce them)
  • Rubbing clothes
  • Poor skin hygiene
  • Hair removal when the skin is not thoroughly disinfected beforehand
  • Using dirty razors
  • Etc.
In addition, certain conditions favor the appearance of furuncle:
  • A disease that weakens the immune system (diabetes, HIV, kidney failure)
  • Some corticosteroid or anticancer drugs
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Major deficiencies in iron
  • Severe allergies
  • Overwork, stress, emotional shock


A boil is a contagious infection that can spread on the skin of the same person in case of lesions, or even to another person if it comes into contact with the liquid contaminated by the bacteria (the pus contained in the pimple). ) while she herself has open lesions (a cut, for example).

The main symptoms of boil

The symptoms of furuncle evolve:
  • At the beginning: a hard bump, red and hot under the skin, which is called nodule.
  • Then: the nodule softens, as pus is formed.
  • Pain and redness in the nodule and in the area concerned.
  • Formation of a "head": it is an apparent pustule filled with pus, which is normally pierced of itself after a certain time.
  • Once the pustule bursts, there remains a small red crater.
When the person has several boils in the same area, it is an anthrax. The pimples appear agglomerated to each other, forming a large purple-colored plate, strewn with pustules. The pain is very strong and can be accompanied by:
  • Swelling of the face
  • nodes
  • Chills
  • Fever


The diagnosis of a boil is very simple and, most often, it does not require medical consultation. The observation of the symptoms is enough.
On the other hand, in case of anthrax or furunculosis, that is to say when several boils appear at the same time (grouped or at different places on the body), it is better to consult the doctor, because the infection could to be the sign of an immune weakness. Medical staff will therefore perform several tests to determine the underlying cause of the infection, if any.

Possible risks of complications

A unique and occasional boil does not cause long-term damage. It will usually resolve after about ten days. However, it can happen that anthrax or furunculosis are the source of serious complications:
  • Unsightly scars
  • A spread of infection through the lymphatic or blood channels: this sometimes leads to sepsis
  • If the boils are located on the nape of the neck or the upper part of the face, they could reach the deep veins and cause clots that block blood access to the brain: this can be fatal

Treatment of boil

An occasional unique boil can be treated at home:
  • In the first stage of the button, gently wash the skin and apply compresses hot water, which helps to "rip" the button.
  • Be careful, you should never press the button with your fingers, as this may push the bacteria deeper.
  • You must disinfect the area and your hands each time you touch the boil to prevent it from spreading.
Some people "pierce" their boils when the pustule appears, but this operation is strongly discouraged by doctors. Normally, a boil will shrink on its own in a few days. On the other hand, if the boils are numerous, too big or really too painful, it is better to go to a health professional. This one will prescribe antibiotics, if necessary, and proceed to a surgical drainage.

Prevention of boil

There are some simple steps to prevent the occurrence of boils and / or their recurrence:
  • Maintain good body hygiene
  • Use an antibacterial soap
  • Treat acne
  • Use a horsehair glove or an abrasive sponge (on the back, shoulders, arms, buttocks, etc.) to properly exfoliate the skin and prevent the pores from becoming clogged

Hormones play a major role in the body by acting as messengers. When there is a disturbance in their functioning, we talk about hormonal disorders. Essential to the proper functioning of our body, we must pay attention if we want to avoid serious health problems. 
Hormonal dysregulation occurs when either hormone is produced too much or too little by the corresponding glands.
Hormones are substances that are secreted by endocrine glands. These substances exist in very small quantities in our body, but they contribute to the good functioning of the organs and the maintenance of health. 
We often think of sex hormones (testosterone, estrogen), but these are far from the only ones. There are several dozens of different hormones that are classified into families according to the gland that secretes them. Among the best known, there are:
  • Pituitary hormones: growth hormone, prolactin, oxytocin, dopamine, etc.
  • Sex hormones: estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, relaxin, inhibin, etc.

In some cases, it is also possible that the hormonal imbalance has a hereditary origin or that it is caused by a cancerous tumor.

Who is affected by hormone disruption? 

Hormonal dysregulation can occur at any time of life, regardless of the age and sex of the person concerned. However, some cases are more likely to suffer from hormone disruption:
  • Newborns
  • Teens
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
  • Premenopausal and menopausal women.
  • Old people

Possible risks of complications

Although uncomfortable, the vast majority of hormonal imbalances are not detrimental in the long run. However, they can cause serious problems such as diabetes, infertility, obesity or serious acne.

Treatment of hormonal dysregulation

Treatment of hormonal imbalance is considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the hormones involved. In most cases, it includes the use of so-called synthetic hormones (created in the laboratory) in order to rebalance the levels in the body.
It can also happen that the hormonal imbalance is caused by a tumor. In this case, it must be removed by surgery.

Also called "tapeworm" (sometimes tænia), the tapeworm is a parasite that affects the digestive system and can be ingested by eating certain foods. It is a long hermaphrodite worm, flat and segmented that can reach 10 meters in length. The tapeworm clings to cupping inside the small intestine and grows thanks to the food that is consumed. If left untreated, the worm can reach 30 years!
There are 3 kinds of tapeworm:
  • The tapeworm saginata, which is caught while eating beef
  • The tapeworm solium, which is caught while eating pork
  • The fish tapeworm, which is found as its name suggests in the flesh of some freshwater fish: it is, however, much rarer than those present in meat

Causes of the worm

The eggs of the worms are ingested by the animals (oxen and pigs), then develop into larvae in their muscles. When we eat this meat, live larvae colonize our own intestines. In the case of fish, there is no need for Intermediate: consuming fish that contains unhatched eggs of tapeworm can contaminate us.
Cooking exterminates tapeworm larvae, but eating uncooked or undercooked meat increases the risk of catching the tapeworm.

Who is touched by the worm? What are the risk factors?

Anyone who consumes poorly cooked contaminated meat can suffer from tapeworm. The disease is however more common:
  • In areas with weak veterinary hygiene measures
  • When eating raw meats frequently


The solitary worm is not contagious.

The main symptoms of the tapeworm

During the first months after contamination er lonely , there are few symptoms. After about 3 months, it can reproduce inside our gut: its eggs are expelled into the stool in rings that look like small flat and white noodles. This is often the first sign that suggests the presence of the parasite.
The physical signs of the tapeworm are:
  • Low abdominal cramps
  • Appetite disorders: we are less hungry, or more hungry: it depends on the cases
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss, in some cases
  • Fatigue and generalized weakness: the worm "gobbles up" all the nutrients necessary for our good health
  • Headache
  • dizziness

Diagnosis of the worm

It is only by noting the presence of solitary worm rings in the stool (sometimes underwear, sheets) that a 100% safe diagnosis can be made. Indeed, there is no other external sign of contamination and the symptoms are all unclear: they can be related to a large number of diseases.

Possible risks of complications

In some very rare cases, the parasite moves to the brain and manifests itself in ocular and neurological disorders. The infection is called cysticercosis and can cause terrible headaches and epileptic seizures.
It can also happen that the tapeworm causes an appendicitis crisis or intestinal obstruction.

Treatment of the worm

Once diagnosed, the tapeworm is easily removed by deworming. The drug kills the parasite in a few days, and the parasite is then eliminated by the stool.

Prevention of the tapeworm

The best way to avoid the worm is to cook the meat and fish you eat very well.
