Airlines are working to shave minutes off departures and arrivals in an effort that could ultimately save them millions. Major carriers like American, United and Delta are all implementing new strategies like automatic gate assignments, new boarding procedures and digital messaging to help avoid delays. Even small snags can ripple across the flight schedule, causing costly disruptions. Some of the new tools will be put to test this holiday season, a year on from major travel mishaps that left thousands of passengers stranded.

Roughly $115 million has been stolen from two cryptocurrency platforms after hackers gained access and pilfered out the digital funds. The platforms, HTX exchange and Heco Chain, are both linked to high-profile entrepreneur Justin Sun, who confirmed the breaches. An estimated $30 million worth of cryptocurrencies was stolen from HTX, formerly known as Huobi, and a total of $85.4 million was stolen from Heco Chain, a so-called blockchain bridge. HTX said that it is identifying the source of the attack and “has implemented urgent measures to protect user assets.”
