This week Elon Musk made headlines with his acquisition of Twitter and calling himself a, “free speech absolutists”. Some believe that the social media platform should censor speech when it violates the community rules. Others believe that all content should be treated the same and the boundaries of speech online shouldn’t be determined by powerful tech companies. Should we not be wary of any centralized actor, be it the government or a wealthy individual, having so much control over who has the right to speak online?
If you’re an avid reader of the Gnosis Chain Weekly then the topic of censorship is not unfamiliar. Code is a form of speech - should there be restrictions and limitations placed on the dissemination of code?

Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
It’s time for the weekly check-in with Azuro Protocol and their first betting front-end, bookmaker.xyz.
It’s been a crazy week over at XYZ; not only did we wrap up our betting competition, but the finals of the biggest esports event of the year, Dota 2 International 2022. concluded alongside it. With the recent Azuro X Pinnacle partnership, we were able to cover the entire event with over 18 markets for bettors to take advantage of… And advantage they took!
We have to highlight one of our favorite bets from the betting competition AND The International 2022. Our pick goes to one of the teams from the betting competition who collectively bet on Team Hokori to win map 1 on the second day of the tournament against Glamin Gladiators. Hokori came in as underdogs, but their performance on day 1 really showed they were serious contenders. 5 xDAI on odds of 3.68 resulted in an 18.43 xDAI win.. For the entire team! Bold strategy - it’s what we like to see!
With the biggest esports event behind us, it’s now time for the biggest sporting event of the year. The Qatar World Cup 2022 starts on the 20th November, follow the XYZ social media because we're going out with a bang!
