We’ve all seen it; the iconic Doge meme which has graced our beloved internet for years on end and becoming somewhat of a cultural phenomenon for its cultural status and entry into cryptocurrency, but it has now etched its name into history by becoming the most expensive NFT ever sold.

The original photo showing the concerned Shiba Inu actually named Kabosu was sold as a non-fungible token (NFT) at an auction, with user @pleasrdao winning ownership with his bid of 1,696.9 of the Ethereum cryptocurrency Ethereum, worth around $4 million.

Kabosu’s owner Atsuko Sato had stated that the photo was nothing out of the ordinary, as she would take photos of her dog everyday since the dog enjoyed being in front of the camera.

€1 million in LESA fines to be invested into Malta's pedestrian infrastructure

Minister for Internal Affairs Byron Camilleri has revealed that the €1 million in LESA fines will be invested into various pedestrian projects within Malta and Gozo’s cities and villages.

Camilleri explained that the investment into pedestrian areas and gardens will make for more accessibility and less cars and went on to state that he gave local councils leeway to go ahead with their own projects.

President for the Association of Local Councils Mario Fava stated that this initiative started four years ago, with the initial plans being that this money would be invested back into the communities through projects such as regenerations, electric vans and security cameras, amongst others.
