Bitcoin looks into the abyss and is about to drop below $20,000

A few days ago we talked about the collapse of the cryptocurrency market. Shortly after we saw that Bitcoin had started a slight recovery process, but in the end this turned out to be a mirage, as it plunged again and almost fell below $20,000.

But what is a captive portal and what are the benefits that an establishment can achieve by starting it up?

Created at the end of the 90s under the name of Ethereal by the North American developer Gerald Combs, Wireshark was born out of a need: to analyze and optimize the traffic generated by an internet service provider (ISP). Those were other times, where the traffic analyzers that existed were not only expensive but also incompatible with the most used servers.

After a few years working on the project, Combs made the qualitative leap that Wireshark needed, the support of an active community of developers and programmers specialized in open source. This is what you need to know.
