What Happens if All Stablecoin Users Have to Be Identified?
What Happens if All Stablecoin Users Have to Be Identified? What Happens if All Stablecoin Users Have to Be Identified?

FinCEN could rule that henceforth, if anyone wants to access tether, USD coin, or any other official stablecoin (TrueUSD, Paxos standard, Gemini dollar, Binance USD, HUSD) they will need to apply for a verified stablecoin account.

It’s not evident how a stablecoin issuer can conduct KYC on a smart contract.

This hoard of stablecoins serves as collateral backing for dai, Maker’s decentralized stablecoin.

Compound, Curve and Uniswap might try to adapt by substituting FinCEN compliant stablecoins like USD coin with decentralized ones, say like Maker’s dai stablecoin.

If Maker, like Compound and Curve, can no longer hold USD coin, then dai itself would become less stable.

BitPay to Pay $500K to Settle OFAC Sanction Violation Charges
BitPay to Pay $500K to Settle OFAC Sanction Violation Charges BitPay to Pay $500K to Settle OFAC Sanction Violation Charges

Crypto payments platform BitPay has settled with the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on charges of over 2,000 apparent sanctions violations.

The company knew it was facilitating transactions for individuals in sanctioned regions because it had location information and IP addresses, OFAC claimed.

BitPay cooperated with OFAC as the agency investigated the charges.

The notice warned that cryptocurrency companies must abide by OFAC regulations and monitor for possible sanctions risks.

OFAC found the violations to be non-egregious.”The company has since improved its compliance program, the spokesperson said.

Bitcoin May Be a Better Investment Than Gold, Says DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach Bitcoin May Be a Better Investment Than Gold, Says DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach

“Bond King” Jeffrey Gundlach has had a change of heart on bitcoin.

Gundlach – CEO of DoubleLine Capital, an investment firm with more than $130 billion in assets under management – now says bitcoin could be a better bet than gold.

Gundlach, who’s previously said “I don’t believe in bitcoin,” tweeted Thursday that “bitcoin may be the stimulus asset.

It doesn’t look like gold is.”Gundlach’s change of stance comes on the heels of bitcoin’s dizzying rise from $10,000 to $52,000 seen in the past 4.5-months.

Gundlach noted he had been neutral on gold for the last six months, while formerly a “gold bull.” He previously said bitcoin was in “bubble territory” when it rose past $23,000 in early Janua…

‘Evil VASP’ Simulation Preps Crypto Exchanges for FATF Travel Rule
‘Evil VASP’ Simulation Preps Crypto Exchanges for FATF Travel Rule ‘Evil VASP’ Simulation Preps Crypto Exchanges for FATF Travel Rule

Getting crypto exchanges across the world to plug into each other and share sensitive customer data is proving to be a complex problem.

This is expected to create a so-called “sunrise problem,” as some parts of the crypto world become regulated ahead of others.

The TRISA testnet begins to address that looming challenge by including a dummy version of an “evil VASP” that will provide false authentication, attempt to steal data and so on.

There are two compliant VASPs as well as the non-compliant exchange on the testnet, explained John Jefferies, co-chairman of TRISA.

“The evil VASP isn’t part of TRISA and it will try and trick people into sharing information,” said Jefferies.

No, Bitcoin Is Nothing Like the South Sea Bubble No, Bitcoin Is Nothing Like the South Sea Bubble

Critics are quick to invoke the South Sea Bubble of 1720 or the tulips in 1637, but it’s not clear they know enough about our financial past to make those episodes relevant for today.

It’s easy to see why comparing Bitcoin to the South Sea Company’s meteoric rise in the spring and summer of 1720 is so tempting.

This all happened during South Sea mania.

This dampens the risk to the overall financial system rather than fueling the fire like the South Sea directors did in the spring and summer of 1720.

Bitcoin’s 2021 looks nothing like the South Sea Company in 1720.

Quantifying The Bitcoin Supply Shortage

When looking at the bitcoin supply, it’s important to consider the state of the float supply, an estimation of the available bitcoin on the market for sale.

One way to estimate the float is to look at short-term holder supply plus the supply balance on exchanges in total and as a percentage of circulating supply.

If you were to add in long-term holder supply to these two, supply is nearly identical to circulating supply.

Float supply also peaks with the bull cycle top nearing 50% as long-term holders flood the market with more bitcoin, taking profits.

Bitcoin, Bitcoiners And Citadels Bitcoin, Bitcoiners And Citadels

Bitcoiners are as toxic to frauds, phonies and charlatans as Bitcoin is to the existing fraud of the world we live in.

So, while Bitcoin is for everyone, and Bitcoiners can come from any and all walks of life, the purity of the message and the incorruptibility that is Bitcoin does not change.

It’s gained momentum in the hearts and minds of Bitcoiners because Bitcoin is fundamentally a parallel system that neither needs nor recognizes the old.

Bitcoin and the Bitcoiners that help make it possible are a microcosm of this concept.

The initial draft was written before Bitcoin, but notes made afterward that Bitcoin as a monetary standard might help make a future like this possible.

Ever since the big correction there has been a lot of bitcoin buying happening, which we all knew would end in an eventual price squeeze.

Framing Bitcoin For Progressives
Framing Bitcoin For Progressives Framing Bitcoin For Progressives

Bitcoin mining is essentially the process of computers competing against other computers to solve complicated math problems to authenticate a time-based series of transactions called blocks.

Ironically, the rate of illicit activity on the Bitcoin network is far less than the U.S. dollar.

Closer to home, the state of Texas is (among other more rage-inducing activities), leveraging its wind energy for bitcoin mining.

It is short-sighted for states with abundant natural resources to restrict bitcoin mining in the name of environmental virtue signaling.

The Bitcoin Mining Counsel estimates about half of all bitcoin mining is powered by renewable energy.

Пользователь Эфириума, попытавшийся принять участие в продаже токенов Strips на платформе MISO децентрализованной биржи SushiSwap, заплатил комиссию $430 000 за неудачно проведенную транзакцию.

Однако в этом случае что-то пошло не так, и транзакция попала в публичный мемпул.

Тем не менее, он все равно заплатил комиссию за транзакцию, которая составила 123 ETH (около $430 000).

Она не появлялась в ретрансляторе Flashbots», – написал в Twitter менеджер по развитию продуктов Flashbots Роберт Миллер (Robert Miller).

Несколько недель назад подобная ситуация произошла с пользователем сервиса DeversiFi – он заплатил комиссию в $23.7 млн за транзакцию в стейблкойнах USDT на сумму $100 000.

ETF на фьючерсы на золото = ETF на фьючерсы на биткойн.

ETF на физическое золото = ETF на спотовый биткойн.

В конце концов, в BTC отсутствуют риски контрагента (а потребность в этом свойстве актуальна на любом уровне), предложение строго конечно и он полностью прозрачен и в равной степени аудитопригоден для всех участников.

Если такая возможность реализуется, то его потенциальный рынок окажется значительно шире… и Ethereum может так и остаться в роли догоняющего.

На основании предоставленных данных, вы принимаете инвестиционные решения взвешенно, ответственно и на свой страх и риск.

Доля Китая в мировой добыче первой криптовалюты снизилась до нуля.

Россия вышла на третье место в мире по майнингу биткойна — согласно данным Кембриджского университета, доля страны в суммарных вычислительных мощностях майнеров достигла 11% в августе по сравнению с 6,8% в апреле.

В исследовании университета указано, что лидером по объемам майнинга теперь являются США (доля 35,4%).

При этом доля Китая, который до недавнего времени был крупнейшим майнинговым центром, за четыре месяца упала с 46% до нуля.

В результате этого предприятия по добыче криптовалют были вынуждены остановить работу для переезда в другие страны.

Управление по контролю за иностранными активами (OFAC) Минфина США опубликовало инструкцию для представителей криптовалютной индустрии касательно соблюдения ими американских санкций. Документ рекомендует использовать «инструменты геолокации» для выявления и блокировки IP-адресов из находящихся под ограничениями юрисдикций.

Комиссия по срочной биржевой торговле США (CFTC) урегулировала претензии к Tether и Bitfinex, обязав компании выплатить гражданские штрафы на общую сумму $42,5 млн. Об этом говорится на сайте регулятора. Согласно приказу, Tether оштрафована $41 млн за «ложные или вводящие в заблуждение заявления» о полном обеспечении стейблкоина USDT. Компания также обязана воздерживаться от дальнейших нарушений Закона о товарных биржах и правил CFTC.

В Объединенных Арабских Эмиратах мошенники подделали голос руководителя крупной компании и убедили банковского работника перевести $35 млн на их счета. Об этом пишет Forbes. Согласно судебному документу, в январе 2020 года менеджер одного из филиалов банка ответил на телефонный звонок якобы владельца крупной компании. Так как сотрудник ранее общался с ним, ему не удалось распознать дипфейк по голосу. Мошенники использовали фальшивые электронные письма от имени компании и ее юриста. Это позволило им убедить сотрудника банка в том, что предприятие находится в процессе заключения сделки на $35 млн.

Глава отдела валют QIC Стюарт Симмонс назвал первый предполагаемый транш в цифровые активы «скорее струйкой, а не потоком». Препятствиями являются неопределенность регуляторной среды и все еще неподготовленная для институциональных инвестиций инфраструктура, добавил он.

Совокупная рыночная стоимость акций 52 компаний, которые в той или иной степени связаны с цифровыми активами, составляет $7,1 трлн.

Один из крупнейших ипотечных кредиторов США United Wholesale Mortgage (UMW) перестал принимать платежи в криптовалюте спустя шесть недель после запуска соответствующей программы.

Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 Released With Taproot Activation Code Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 Released With Taproot Activation Code

Bitcoin Core version 0.21.1 is now available for download.

As described in detail in the release notes, miner block templates produced by this version of Bitcoin Core will signal readiness to enforce taproot during the roughly three month period specified by BIP341.

Note: due to a problem with the certificate authority that provides the code signing certificates for the Windows versions of Bitcoin Core, users on Windows will need to click through an extra prompt to install.

If you are planning to upgrade anyway, there’s no reason to delay using 0.21.1 because of this problem.

News● LN spend to fees CVE: last week, Antoine Riard posted the announcement of CVEs for multiple programs to the Lightning-Dev mailing list.

➚In BIP125 Rule #2, why is it important for the replacement transaction to not introduce any new unconfirmed inputs?

This logic catches the case where the replacement transaction is spending a transaction that it is replacing.

Since it’s impossible for both the original transaction and the replacement transaction to be confirmed, this replacement transaction can never appear in the block chain, and so is consensus invalid.

● Proposal for transaction heritage identifiers: a post by pseudonymous developer John Law was submitted to the Bitcoin-Dev and Lightning-Dev mailing lists.

For example, 0123...cdef:0:1 indicates the current transaction input is spending the second child of the first output of txid 0123...cdef .

Floating transactions allow participants to create signatures for a particular output without knowing its txid as long as they otherwise satisfy the conditions in that output’s script.

Discussion of the ideas was complicated due to not all participants being willing to use the mailing lists.

If discussion on the lists resumes, we’ll summarize any notable updates in a future newsletter.

The cold wallet key becomes the taproot internal key, allowing it to spend the funds any time.

TLUV allows that script to specify how that part of the merkle tree should be modified.

TLUV allows any single member to exit at any time without requiring anything be presigned or affecting any other users, beyond revealing that one member has left the joinpool.

This allows TLUV to constrain where the bitcoins can be spent (the definition of a covenant ), similar to other proposed opcodes such as OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK (CSFS) and OP_CHECKTEMPLATEVERIF…

The review club compared legacy block download with BIP152-style compact block download and discussed why blocksonly nodes don’t benefit from the latter.

Peers indicate that they want to use compact block relay by sending sendcmpct at the start of the connection.

The node can use the compact block shortids to look for the block transactions in its mempool and cache of extra transactions.

Compact block relay reduces bandwidth usage for nodes that have a mempool because they don’t need to re-download the majority of block transactions.

P2TR Channels.

Unfortunately, every LN channel requires cooperation between two signers, and in the current pre-taproot Bitcoin, every 2-of-2 script is openly coded.

The existing channel uses the existing P2WSH 2-of-2 scheme and has to be closed in order to switch to a P2TR channel.

For P2TR channels, we should note that while this is “only” between two direct peers, it also has lower benefits.

For x equivalent paths, the base fee would be x times as high.

It may be possible to solve this problem algorithmically in the long term, but the easiest solution for implementers of the algorithm would be to eliminate the base fee.

The base fee allows a node to require that it be compensated for those costs.

Recall one more time that the signature adaptor the donor published was their actual signature minus the scalar.

When the hidden number is discovered and somebody sends the 1,000 BTC transaction, they must publish the original (valid) signature commitment.

Bob can take that (valid) signature commitment and subtract from it the (invalid) signature commitment in the original signature adaptor to get the scalar.

It’s only possible for you to balance that equation if you know your private key and the private form of the nonce.

For example, looking at block 692,039, we can distinguish not just the multisig spends from the single-sig spends but also distinguish between different set sizes and thresholds for the multisigs.

For infrequently used wallets, all the nonces needed for the entire wallet lifetime can be shared up front.

For more frequently used wallets (e.g.

BROUGHT TO YOU BYIssue #119Paper of the Week:Paper Title: Kadcast-NG: A Structured Broadcast Protocol for Blockchain Networks.

In such networks, broadcast is known to be an inefficient operation in terms of message complexity and overhead.

In contrast, the Kadcast protocol is a structured peer-to-peer protocol for block and transaction propagation in blockchain networks.

Lastly, it introduces a QUIC-based prototype implementation of the Kadcast protocol and shows its merits through deployment in a large-scale cloud-based testbed.

TLDR: Blockchain analysis is essential for understanding how cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are used in practice, and address clustering is a cornerstone of blockchain analysis.

First, it builds a ground truth set of transactions with known change from the Bitcoin blockchain that can be used to validate the efficacy of individual change address detection heuristics.

After applying the proposed prediction model to the Bitcoin blockchain, it analyzes the resulting clustering and develops ways to detect and prevent cluster collapse.

TLDR: Several emerging proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain protocols rely on a “parallel-chain” architecture for scaling, where instead of a single chain, multiple chains are run in parallel and aggregated.

This paper considers the design of provably secure parallel-chain protocols which can adapt to such mining power variations.

First deployed in November 2020, Art Blocks is a platform for launching generative art series where the generation script is stored immutably on Ethereum for each project.

When a user mints an ERC-721 from the platform, a provably unique seed determines the variables in the generative script, ultimately defining the appearance of the output.

Since the beginning of this summer, daily volumes have skyrocketed, with ~$25M in sales volume traded on Wednesday across Curated, Playground, and Factory series.

Pudgy Penguins were the fastest 1000x project ( 0.003 ETH -> 3 ETH ) so far in the history of NFTs.

There is currently limited native tools for NFT market analysis.

To validate the authenticity of the movement, confirm my trading thesis, and better manage the risk while still capturing the fast moving opportunity, I created a Dune Analytics dashboard to track the most essential metrics.

My key metrics were unique wallets/distribution, hourly floor price, moving average, and volume.

UMA’s TVL grew 44% in the past 30 days as the team rolled out a number of new products, including range tokens and success tokens.

Range tokens can be incredible tools for treasury diversification as it is an on-chain option that is customizable for DAO needs.

Success tokens are a new incentive-aligned way for VC funds to effectively invest in a “Series B” for DAOS.

UMA is working closely with teams, and is also organizing leads from VCs interested in taking the other side of these deals.

Exploring the Opportunity for DeFi Interest Rate Markets
Exploring the Opportunity for DeFi Interest Rate Markets Exploring the Opportunity for DeFi Interest Rate Markets

However, we expect fixed-rate loans to become larger than variable rate loans as DeFi rails eventually power traditional financial markets.

For example, the variable borrow rate for USDC is 5.4% and the stable borrow rate is 11.9%.

The variable borrow rate for ETH is 0.25% and the stable borrow rate is 3.3%.

Unlike the borrow rate for a variable user, the borrow rate for stable borrowers in most market conditions will not fluctuate with new borrows, new deposits, new liquidations, etc.

She can, via interest rate perpetual contracts, go long the Aave interest rate for XYZ token such that she is protected in the event that her borrow rate increases and eats into the profitability of her tradi…

As such, we’ve developed new frameworks in this post regarding a DeFi token’s ability to capture value.

Application Layer TokensIn On Value Capture at Layers 1 and 2, we argued that the only way a DeFi token can capture value is if it manages unforkable state.

SummaryThe best way to justify value capture for DeFi tokens is to have some sort of risk in the system that needs to be managed.

Today, I am excited to announce that Multicoin Capital has led a $17.4M round in Eden Network, alongside participation from Jump Capital, Alameda Research, Wintermute, GSR, Defiance Capital, and Andre Cronje, the founder of Yearn.Finance.

MEV can be defined as the sum of guaranteed on-chain profits that block producers can claim.

Eden Network protects users from malicious MEV and financializes beneficial MEV in a token.

However, this reduction in earnings for Ethereum block producers has reduced the security budget for Ethereum.

Many Ethereum block producers are looking to MEV to supplement their earnings post EIP 1559.

Scaling Reads and Writes
Scaling Reads and Writes Scaling Reads and Writes

And in most database applications, the ratio of reads to writes is between 100:1 and 10,000:1.

Scaling reads will be the next big scaling challenge for the blockchain industry.

Most database applications have a specific data structure, where the structure of the database is tailored to how the system is expected to query data out of the system.

The problem with scaling reads in a blockchain is that a blockchain—by definition—does not prescribe the transaction format.

This means that the largest query ecosystem with the largest value staked by indexers will be the most secure query system.

Multicoin Capital has accumulated a large position in RUNE, the native token of THORChain, a decentralized cross-chain automated market maker (AMM).

There is a tremendous opportunity to build products that enable trust-minimized, cross-chain trading.

In a world where many chains and tokens exist, traders naturally want to be able to trade assets across chains in a trust-minimized way.

The first of such cross-chain trading examples was the Tier Nolan atomic swap.

The diversity of chains creates the need for a trust-minimized, decentralized way to trade spot tokens across chains.

Back in August 2020 we led a $1.8M investment in a new automated market maker (AMM) protocol focused on perpetual contracts: Perpetual Protocol, aka Perp.fi!

Once collateral is deposited, traders trade perpetual contracts just as they would on centralized exchanges, but with one key difference.

First, PERP holders govern the protocol, including managing parameters such as trading fees, asset listings, insurance fund management, and more.

Perhaps the best thing about The Perpetual Protocol is that it can be used to trade any asset with a public price feed.

That means it can trade perpetual contracts for cryptos, commodities and or any asset in any asset class.

While scaling Ethereum has been a conversation since the protocol was born, the popularity of DeFi and NFTs has made it an urgent concern.

More specifically, we show that the space of concave, nonnegative, nondecreasing, 1-homogeneous payoff functions and the space of convex CFMMs are equivalent; in other words, every CFMM has a concave, nonnegative, nondecreasing, 1-homogeneous payoff function, and every payoff function with these properties has a corresponding convex CFMM.

We demonstrate a simple method for recovering a CFMM trading function that produces this desired payoff.

This method uses only basic tools from convex analysis and is intimately related to Fenchel conjugacy.

Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi
Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi

Economic conditions, technology, and human practice are all subject to change, and thus approaches to systemic risk mitigation must also evolve over time.

Before considering strategies for systemic risk mitigation, it is important to identify individual types of risk with systemic implications.

Similarly, systemic risk mitigation in DeFi relies heavily on how risk and emergency situations are managed at the level of individual users, businesses, and networks.

In comparison to traditional finance, the key technological advantages of DeFi as it relates to systemic risk mitigation are higher levels of digitization, transparency, and automation.

It may therefore seem premature to think about sy…

A Note on Privacy in Constant Function Market Makers A Note on Privacy in Constant Function Market Makers

Constant function market makers (CFMMs) such as Uniswap, Balancer, Curve, and mStable, among many others, make up some of the largest decentralized exchanges on Ethereum and other blockchains.

Because all transactions are public in current implementations, a natural next question is if there exist similar decentralized exchanges which are privacy-preserving; i.e., if a transaction’s quantities are hidden from the public view, then an adversary cannot correctly reconstruct the traded quantities from other public information.

In this note, we show that privacy is impossible with the usual implementations of CFMMs under most reasonable models of an adversary and provide some mitigating strateg…

Optimal Fees for Geometric Mean Market Makers
Optimal Fees for Geometric Mean Market Makers Optimal Fees for Geometric Mean Market Makers

Constant Function Market Makers (CFMMs) are a family of automated market makers that enable censorship-resistant decentralized exchange on public blockchains.

Trading fees have been proposed as a mechanism for compensating LPs for arbitrage losses.

CFMM designers are therefore faced with the problem of how to optimally select fees to attract liquidity.

We develop a framework for determining the value to LPs of supplying liquidity to a CFMM with fees when the underlying process follows a general diffusion.

Our approach also allows one to select optimal fees for maximizing LP value.

Liquidity and trading activity on constant function market makers (CFMMs) such as Uniswap, Curve, and Balancer has grown significantly in the second half of 2020.

Much of the growth of these protocols has been driven by incentivized pools or 'yield farming', which reward participants in crypto assets for providing liquidity to CFMMs.

But what does it mean for a CFMM to be the most liquid market?

We show that this definition is tightly related to the curvature of a CFMM's trading function and can be used to explain a number of heuristic results.

Additionally, the results can also be used to model interacting markets and explain the rise of incentivized liquidity provision, also known as 'yie…

Abstract: We examine the idea of outsourcing stake to third party validators in the Proof of Stake process, which potentially decouples the coin holders from the consensus agents.

TokenisationThe entities performing the outsourced staking as a service could also issue tokens to their clients, representing shares in the staking pool.

However, the staking pool tokens could still remain popular after ETH 2.0 launches, because the staking pool tokens would still have a faster redemption mechanism, making them appealing.

But also on-chain products with lower risk, such as a way to stake stETH and give up some of the yield in exchange for an extra layer of insurance.

Ethereum’s Proof of Stake System – Calculating Penalties & Rewards Ethereum’s Proof of Stake System – Calculating Penalties & Rewards

OverviewBack in May 2020 we gave an overview of the mechanics and the main processes in Ethereum’s proposed PoS system.

This is in contrast to other rewards, for instance attestor rewards, which decline per attestor as the total amount at stake increases.

The main issue here is understanding the philosophy of those that designed the PoS system, principally and evolutionary philosophy.

Most PoS advocates appear to have no ambition of finding a perfect PoS system that can be robust for decades, instead they seek a strong system that can be upgraded and refined.

Therefore the above PoS system should not be thought of as a final system design, it is only an experiment and it may change.

If we were forced to guess, we would say there could be one more financial boom and bust cycle left, before the ultimate inflationary endgame.

Of course, when the Fed does tighten the taps too far, which we think may happen, it is likely crypto assets may be hit hard.

The motivation for this appears to be that this is an interesting endeavour and perhaps it is subconsciously appealing as it will provide more power and control to the central bankers.

The Blocksize War – Chapter 21 – Victory The Blocksize War – Chapter 21 – Victory

Chapter 21 of the book The Blocksize War is published below.

However, after the drama and shenanigans of the blocksize war, one thing is clear: there is still hope that the claim is true.

This would then make Bitcoin Cash more profitable to mine, driving miners away from Bitcoin and towards Bitcoin Cash.

If the Bitcoin Cash price increased and more miners joined, the Bitcoin Cash difficulty would increase, thereby driving miners back to Bitcoin before the Bitcoin difficulty ever adjusted downwards.

In November 2018, just over one year since Bitcoin Cash had launched, there were tensions in the Bitcoin Cash community.

The Blocksize War – Chapter 20 – SegWit2x
The Blocksize War – Chapter 20 – SegWit2x The Blocksize War – Chapter 20 – SegWit2x

January 2031The Blocksize War – Chapter 20 – SegWit2xMost small blockers had been largely quiet when it came to their campaign against phase two of the NYA, hoping for phase one to occur successfully before engaging more aggressively.

On August 31, one of the mining pools which signed the agreement, F2Pool, announced its intention not to support SegWit2x.

On top of that, 99.94% of nodes & SPV clients will automatically follow that longest chain (segwit2x).

As the proposed consensus protocol Segwit2x project appears likely to activate, we have elected to designate the Segwit2x fork as B2X, for now.

So much for the idea of persuading the community to support SegWit2x; at this point, its propo…

Bitcoin Cash therefore lowered the difficulty requirement, which had another inadvertent benefit: it meant the Bitcoin Cash block headers were incompatible with Bitcoin, and therefore even Bitcoin light clients and mobile wallets would always know not to follow the Bitcoin Cash chain.

The impact of this was that the capacity of the Bitcoin Cash network oscillated in a volatile way, which proved to be a major weakness and impacted the reliability of Bitcoin Cash as a payment network.

The message in the Bitcoin Cash blocks was just marketing, and the owner of the organisation, Peter Ng, also had a mining farm he had allocated to Bitcoin Cash to help market his new venue.

However, Kraken, for …

January 2031The Blocksize War – Chapter 18 – New York AgreementOn May 22, 2017, there was a meeting in New York arranged by Barry Silbert, of Digital Currency Group (DCG), aimed at resolving the conflict.

The following document referred to as the New York Agreement (NYA), was published.

Finally, on June 5, 2017, Jeff caved in under the pressure and included BIP 91 in his BTC1 client.

As for the BTC1 client, it appeared to be full of bugs, even after implementing BIP 91.

Jeff was also under considerable pressure to add replay protection to the BTC1 client, however he opposed this.

The Blocksize War – Chapter 17 – User-Activated Softfork
The Blocksize War – Chapter 17 – User-Activated Softfork The Blocksize War – Chapter 17 – User-Activated Softfork

Ultimately the rules of Bitcoin work because they’re enforced by the users collectively– that is what makes Bitcoin Bitcoin, it’s what makes it something people can count on: the rules aren’t easy to just change.

In his mind, the fact that BIP 148 was a softfork, a subset of the current consensus rules, was a significant advantage and would help force miners to switch to the BIP 148 chain.

The large blockers often derided the small blockers as insignificant and naive.

If one invested in the BIP 148 token, you could only get a payout if both the BIP 148 token chain and the original rules chain (the non-BIP 148 chain) continued to exist.

Therefore, investing in a token dependent on the contin…

Chapter 16 of the book The Blocksize War is published below.

January 2031The Blocksize War – Chapter 16 – LitecoinOne strategy discussed in the Dragons’ Den in this period was the activation of SegWit on Litecoin, an alternative coin, often considered as a close relative to Bitcoin.

Support for SegWit among the Litecoin miners was gradually increasing, however it was still low and it was uncertain if activation would occur.

He explained to me that he didn’t want SegWit in Litecoin, without Litecoin also having a hardfork blocksize increase.

However, this didn’t seem logical because, unlike Bitcoin, Litecoin did not have full blocks at all.

The following day, large blockers discovered a video presentation by Bram Cohen, the inventor of Bittorrent, which was given in January 2017.

The large blockers are also likely to have had secret communication and coordination channels focusing on public relations.

To me, there was one clear takeaway from this “scandal”; I simply had to get inside the Dragons’ Den.

I made it into the depths of the Dragons’ Den.

This war was also a meme war, and the “Dragons”, as members of the channel were sometimes called, were very involved in meme production.

The Blocksize War – Chapter 14 – ASICBoost The Blocksize War – Chapter 14 – ASICBoost

January 2031The Blocksize War – Chapter 14 – ASICBoostOn Wednesday April 5, 2017, another bombshell was set off, this time by the small blockers.

The Bitcoin block header is 80 bytes in size and therefore it is split between two chunks — chunk 1 and chunk 2.

Maybe Bitmain’s point was that they were not doing covert ASICBoost, but even if they were, so what?

Extension blocks were a way to get a softfork blocksize limit increase and retain the ability to conduct covert ASICBoost.

Even today, I am genuinely unsure of whether Bitmain was using covert ASICBoost on the mainnet or not.

They issued a joint announcement, indicating that they would not regard Bitcoin Unlimited as Bitcoin, even if it had a majority of the hashing power.

Since it appears likely we may see a hardfork initiated by the Bitcoin Unlimited project, we have decided to designate the Bitcoin Unlimited fork as BTU (or XBU).

As for the price of the Bitcoin Unlimited token, it never reached more than 20 percent of the price of the Bitcoin.

Finally, at the end of the year, the Bitcoin Unlimited token expired worthless, as no…

For our latest episode, I sat down with MEV Senpai, one of the top searchers in Ethereum.

He gave us the unique inside perspective of someone who finds and captures MEV himself.

The result was a long & intense convo, one of the best I’ve had in a while.

We discussed:The structure and actors of the MEV gameWhat is searching, how can you learn it, what edges existIntro to private relays and transaction bundlesThe role of Flashbots in DEX tradingand, of course, the hot topic of the day: short-term reorgs in EthereumEnjoy!

First, you no longer publish a fee-paying transaction to the public mempool.

Instead, you sign a transaction and submit it off-chain to the CowSwap relayer, which handles all the execution.

Second, and this gets us to real innovation, CowSwap looks for so-called “coincidents of wants” or CoWs before sending your order to the regular on-chain exchanges.

Because there’s no point in reordering trades that have the same price, this also eliminates MEV as well.

Please enjoy my conversation on CowSwap with Felix Leupold.

So like, that’s a pretty that’s that’s a that’s a very interesting situation.

Charlie Noyes 36:54I think that’s true.

I think that’s probably more of a general comment about non application specific security layers.

And I don’t want you to, I don’t want you to comment on the price, because I know that’s not really possible.

Hasu: I don’t actually don’t think that’s it, but you’re very good at the self-deprecating humor, I must say.

But I just don’t think that’s an investment argument.

If I’m going to do the funny money, if I’m going to do the weird internet money, I need more than a three X.” And then they start looking down CoinMarketCap, or CoinGecko or whatever.

Cobie: Honestly, I don’t think it was a very high quality rambling as you’ve just witnessed in this follow-up ramble.

If I’m going to make some closing remarks, since I’ve got the opportunity to record my own closing of the podcast.

In this episode, Su and I discuss the rise of WallStreetBets and financial populism in general.

As one of the most experienced market participants I know, Su has a unique perspective on the story behind the GameStop short squeeze.

We explore why he thinks it is going to end in tears for small investors, which invisible rules of the traditional financial system have been laid bare for everyone to see, and how all of this massively validates crypto and Defi going forward.

And they are trying to get into the DeFi right now.

Arthur 36:32I think right now, I think for Nexus Mutual is a, it’s a bit of a debate.

So I think that’s kind of the expansion of the scope.
