Tuesday August 23 2022 NEWS 07 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Aussie dark matter lab LOCATED 1km underground in the Stawell goldmine, the first dark matter laboratory in the southern hemisphere is preparing to join the global quest to understand the nature of dark matter and unlock the secrets of our universe. The Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory will be the new epicentre of dark matter research in Australia. Lead researcher on the project, Professor Elisabetta Barberio from the University of Melbourne, said the lab is ready to host the experiment SABRE South, which aims to directly detect dark matter. Deep dive into sharks CONSERVATION scientists are unlocking the mysteries of how shark and ray species move up and down the ocean water column in efforts to better understand them and secure their future. In the global analysis of how sharks, skates and rays use the vertical dimension of the ocean, researchers found 13 species dived to depths greater than one kilometre. Whale sharks were found to dive to a staggering 1896m, while white sharks were recorded diving deeper than 1200m. Crypto set to change AUSTRALIA will become the first country in the world to token map the crypto assets sector as the government seeks to protect investors amid an onslaught of advertising. The federal government has announced it will take a fresh look at regulating the sector in consultation with stakeholders. Treasurer Jim Chalmers said the review was about allowing consumers to participate in the market while also better protecting them. As it stands, the crypto sector is largely unregulated, and we need to do some work to get the balance right so we can embrace new and innovative technologies while safeguarding consumers, he said. With the increasingly widespread proliferation of crypto assets to the extent that crypto advertisements can be seen plastered all over big sporting events we need to make sure customers engaging with crypto are adequately informed and protected. In what the government has billed as a world first, Treasury will token map the Australian crypto market. Token mapping is the process of determining the characteristics of all digital tokens available in the country from Bitcoin to Dogecoin. It will be part of an audit of the crypto ecosystem, which the tax office says more than one million taxpayers have interacted with since 2018. The aim will be to identify notable gaps in the regulatory framework, progress work on a licensing framework, review innovative organisational structures, look at custody obligations for third party custodians of crypto assets and provide additional consumer safeguards, Dr Chalmers said. Earlier this month, the Reserve Bank announced it would trial a digital currency in a ring fenced pilot. A public consultation paper on token mapping will be released soon.
