5 Reasons Why Bitcoin Just Hit an All-Time High Price
5 Reasons Why Bitcoin Just Hit an All-Time High Price 5 Reasons Why Bitcoin Just Hit an All-Time High Price

Bitcoin surged Monday to a new all-time high price of $19,864, extending its year-to-date rise to an astounding 170% during a 2020 that has seen tumultuous swings in global markets.

Here are five reasons why the oldest and largest cryptocurrency has pushed to new highs.

Institutional interestSome institutional investors are taking on bitcoin exposure, such as buying into the publicly traded Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), according to a Nov. 20 report from analysts at JPMorgan Chase.

Bitcoin Trading Fees on PayPal, Robinhood, Cash App and Coinbase: What to Know
Bitcoin Trading Fees on PayPal, Robinhood, Cash App and Coinbase: What to Know Bitcoin Trading Fees on PayPal, Robinhood, Cash App and Coinbase: What to Know

The caveat here is that bitcoin purchases in PayPal live firmly inside the fintech giant’s walled garden.

In fact, Square’s Cash App led the way to bringing bitcoin purchases into a mainstream wallet.

Cash App doesn’t spell out its explicit fees, despite having a bitcoin fees page where it acknowledges both a trading fee and an occasional bump when the price is very volatile.

(When we previously looked, Coinbase started to outperform Cash App for bitcoin purchases around $200 and higher.)

A lot of BTC gets bought and sold on Cash App, but profits on those sales do not represent a meaningful portion of income for Square.

Stablecoins ‘Pose Serious Risks’ to Financial Security, ECB’s Lagarde Says Stablecoins ‘Pose Serious Risks’ to Financial Security, ECB’s Lagarde Says

Stablecoins could “threaten financial security” if widely adopted, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde said in an article published Monday in magazine L’ENA hors les murs.

In the piece, Lagarde makes a bullish case for a digital euro while throwing shade at potential rivals such as cryptocurrencies and stablecoins – digital assets the values of which are pegged to fiat currencies.

As a result, Lagarde said, cryptocurrencies suffer from a lack of liquidity, stability and trust, and therefore “do not fulfil all the functions of money.”While noting stablecoins are trying to fix those issues and could drive added innovation in payments, they “pose serious risks,” Lagarde said.

The price of Bitcoin (BTC) climbed back to over $19,000 today after taking a $3,000 nosedive last week.

Член управляющего совета Европейского центрального банка Фабио Панетта сообщил, что фиатные валюты могут подвергнуться серьезным рискам уже в январе 2021 года.

Появление стейблкойна Libra от компании Facebook может нести угрозу для национальных валют, уверены в Европейском центральном банке (ЕЦБ).

Панетта подчеркнул, что после выпуска стейбкойна социальной сети, который запланирован на январь 2021 года, ЕЦБ будет вынужден «заново изобретать суверенные деньги».

«Libra может поставить под угрозу монетарный суверенитет.

Сегодня, 27 ноября Financial Times сообщила, что компания Facebook может представить свою криптовалюту Libra в январе следующего года.

Китайские власти продадут криптовалюты на сумму в $4,2 млрд, изъятые у PlusToken Китайские власти продадут криптовалюты на сумму в $4,2 млрд, изъятые у PlusToken

Власти Китая реализуют изъятые в ходе расследования деятельности финансовой пирамиды PlusToken криптовалюты на сумму в $4,2 млрд.

«Конфискованная цифровая валюта будет реализована в соответствии с законом, а вырученные средства будут переданы в государственную казну», – говорится в решении.

По версии прокуратуры, ключевые участники PlusToken привлекали инвесторов доходностью в 10-20% ежемесячно и реферальной программой.

Ущерб от PlusToken оценивается в $5,8 млрд.

В сентябре им предъявили обвинения в организации и управлении мошеннической схемой.

Банк России предлагает, чтобы цифровые кошельки открывались и находились в ЦБ, и расчеты по ним проводились на платформе ЦБ.

«В моделях ЦБ России прослеживается вектор движения к монополии ЦБ, что негативно отразится на финансовом рынке страны.

Во-вторых, цифровой рубль может использоваться для расчетов с государственными и муниципальными органами и предприятиями, так и для выплат государства населению и предприятиям».

Пользователи биржи криптовалют OKEx вывели больше $110 млн в течение нескольких часов с момента активации исходящих транзакций сегодня.

По данным аналитической фирмы CryptoQuant, первая группа транзакций на 2 822 BTC прошла в течение 15 минут с момента возобновления сервиса в 11:00 МСК.

Это крупнейший единовременный отток средств с биржи с мая этого года.

CEO CryptoQuant Ки Ен Чжу заявляет, что это не внутренние переводы, а депозиты пользователей.

Незадолго до сегодняшнего возобновления вывода средств с OKEx биткойн начал снижаться и потерял в течение нескольких часов около $3 000 стоимости.

Новую платформу планируют запустить после вступления в силу закона "О ЦФА". "С 1 января вступает в силу соответствующий закон. Мы хотим вывести на рынок нашу новую блокчейн-платформу, которая будет предоставлять услуги по покупке ЦФА.

О текущей ситуации на рынке рассказывает трейдер Илья Мещеряков. Конец прошедшей недели сложился для криптовалютного рынка весьма удачно — как я писал в предыдущем обзоре, цели снижения по фигуре уже были достигнуты, а значит, для продолжения восходящего тренда, биткоину необходимо было разворачиваться прямо от $16 300. К счастью для быков, это произошло и BTC торгуется уже выше $18 800 при стабильном уровне индекса доминирования на отметке 62%. Дальнейшие перспективы остаются позитивными, поскольку коррекция на 17% позволила сократить перекупленность и выбить значительную часть открытого интереса в лонг, при этом не спровоцировав лишнюю панику.

В основе Ethereum лежит идея, что блокчейн способен на нечто большее, чем просто быть основой для децентрализованных денег.

Ethereum 2.0 (ETH2) – это крупное обновление сети, призванное без ущерба для децентрализации повысить ее масштабируемость, безопасность и энергоэффективность.

Большая часть экономической деятельности и смарт-контрактов продолжит функционировать в оригинальной сети Ethereum, которая будет работать параллельно с ETH2.

IPFS, Filecoin and The Vision for a Decentralized Web (Part 1 of 2)
IPFS, Filecoin and The Vision for a Decentralized Web (Part 1 of 2) IPFS, Filecoin and The Vision for a Decentralized Web (Part 1 of 2)

IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a fully decentralized distributed system for storing and accessing files, websites, applications, and data.

Released just over 5 years ago by Protocol Labs, it has had a tremendous impact in the Web3 space as the standard for how blockchain projects store data.

Filecoin is a complementary protocol to IPFS and was recently launched on the mainnet.

Filecoin is the economic layer which powers IPFS’s decentralized file storage network.

Juan Benet is the Founder & CEO of Protocol Labs, which has had a huge impact in the blockchain ecosystem, as organisation behind IPFS and Filecoin.

Trent McConaghy: Ocean Protocol – The Platform Making Waves in the Data Industry Trent McConaghy: Ocean Protocol – The Platform Making Waves in the Data Industry

There’s a one direction value flow in terms of those who are providing the value (the data) and those extracting it.

Ocean Protocol is a platform which creates data marketplaces, providing an alternative to the current model.

Data providers can sell their data to the platform to whoever wants to buy it and that data set is represented as a token.

Trent McConaghy, Founder of Ocean Protocol, joins us to chat about the platform.

They have just released V3 which has seen the introduction of the data token, the Ocean Market, and a new home on the Ethereum Mainchain.

In a way Circles that’s again, third way to look at Circles is to say we want this fair money, but we want to make it also fair in more dimensions.

Martin: I would not necessarily say Circles itself would turn into a Dao, but clearly we are already working on a Circles DAO that has the goal to bring Circles forward.

If in five or 10 years from now 80% or more of dApps on Ethereum or are using one or two API, do you think that’s a success for Ethereum?

LazyLedger is a scalable general-purpose data availability layer for decentralized apps and trust-minimized sidechains.

Layer Two systems were being built on top of Bitcoin and were leveraging Bitcoin’s consensus layer.

This is what LazyLedger is doing, although it is purpose built and scalable for the exact use case.

The implementation details are a lot more complex, and the vision is to create a modular pluggable Layer One that does nothing but consensus and data availability.

It is designed for people who want to create their blockchain without consensus.

NuCypher is a decentralized threshold cryptography network offering interfaces and runtimes for secrets management and dynamic access control.

They are currently in testnet but once launched you will be able to use NuCypher to carry out proxy re-encryption.

Proxy re-encryption is a cryptographic method that allows you to delegate re-encryption of data to a third party and in this case validators in the NuCypher network.

With this method you issue a re-encryption key that is assigned to a specific public key and a third party has the ability to re-encrypt data for that third party to decrypt.

In this case the NuCypher network acts as the third party service.

There's nothing more political than money because money affects everything else, and yet Bitcoin works.

What’s the value in the US and western Europe compared to the value in less developed parts of the world?

Does being part of the bitcoin community make you politically affiliated, or represent a distinct political viewpoint?

What I like about Bitcoin is it's a way to be a part of neither game.

In order for an economy to work, money supply has to continue to increase.

You know, gold and silver have the highest stock-to-flows and they were the only moneys chosen on the market.

If bitcoin was the only money and the money supply was fixed then it would only appreciate compared to goods based on how much those goods supply increases, so when we have economic growth bitcoin appreciates slightly.

Well, not like we have a choice but you know, bitcoin just proceeds and fewer coins are out there.

So, bitcoin becomes much more of a fabric and so more survivable, but it’s not as good from a privacy kind of point of view.

I think bitcoin adds one other dimension, which was not something I was focusing on before.

So, you could call that kind of bitcoin 0.5 if you’d like, you know, the bitcoin zero without a proof-of-work.

So when you look at these different forces, where do you think bitcoin is headed next?

As somebody from a computer science background, that’s really a very interesting artifact from the world.

Алексей – соавтор DeFi-протоколов Neutrino и Gravity, являющихся альтернативой широко известному проекту MakerDAO, но в экосистеме Waves.

На экосистеме различие не заканчивается: во-первых, сама суть того, за счёт чего обеспечивается стабильность токена, в Neutrino несколько иная; во-вторых, есть много позитивных моментов в том, что протокол разрабатывается на Тьюринг-неполном языке RIDE.

Об этих различиях, а также о планах проекта мы поговорили в выпуске.

Всем, кому интересно, можете просто пройти ниже по ссылке, посмотреть про Wasabi или про Samourai, что это такое и как это работает.

Всё, это не ваши деньги, и там они, соответственно, уже могут и помешать, и сделать всё что угодно.

Мы, наверное, сейчас как следующей темой поговорим, что мы будем делать дальше, что у нас будет privacy pool.

С точки зрения Tornado на сегодняшний день мы не имеем какой-либо коммерческой заинтересованности, с точки зрения мы не ранаем релееров и мы не имеем никакого профита вообще с Tornado Cash.

Например, торговлю фьючерсами, то есть то, что сейчас называют DeFi, но ещё оно было централизованное.

То есть они тогда занимались больше маркетингом, то есть они вообще боялись что-то трогать.

То есть, есть люди, которые более успешно получают финансирование.

Поэтому у нас есть два уровня, то есть еще есть провайдеры, которые реально известны, которые отвечают за свои действия, то есть чистые Proof of Stake.

То есть, в принципе, надо обязательно контролить секрет обязательно во всех блокчейнах – и в Bitcoin, и в Ethereum, если мы рассматриваем своп биткоин-эфир.

То, что в первую очередь торгуется, то, что интересно пользователям другим, то есть такой у нас приоритет.

То есть там целый скрипт надо предъявить, то есть когда ты открываешь подпись.

Это немножко не то, это не свопы.

Я не знаю, Bitcoin Core разработчикам вообще интересен халвинг и его влияние, или все просто продолжается по-прежнему?

Можно было бы майнерам, которые захватили 51% на неделю, договориться что-то сделать, поменять… Ну, не на неделю, на день.

Вот у нас будет халвинг завтра, а следующий халвинг будет примерно еще через 4 года, скажем, в 2024 году.

In the rest of this post, we'll use "collusion" to refer to "undesired coordination" generally.

From the point of view of someone determining the rules for the voting mechanism, they don't know ahead of time whether the Orange Party is good or bad.

If a group makes a bad decision, those who approved the decision must suffer more than those who attempted to dissent.

Different coordination structures, different outcomesSometimes, more coordination is good: it's better when people can work together to collectively solve their problems.

Of course, it is very difficult to prevent communication outright, and it is very difficult to make coordination perfect.

If we want to make practical moves toward trust minimization, we want to have the ability to compare different degrees of trust.

First, my simple one-sentence definition of trust: trust is the use of any assumptions about the behavior of other people.

Not growing your own food is another kind of trust: trust that enough people will realize that it's in their interests to grow food so they can sell it to you.

You can trust different sizes of groups of people, and there are different kinds of trust.

See also:One of the most powerful properties of a blockchain is the fact that every single part of the blockchain's execution can be independently validated.

First, it maximizes the chance that the node can correctly determine and say on the canonical chain - the chain that the community accepts as legitimate.

The goal of validation is then to move away from default to victory to (ideally) default to failure or (less ideally) default to chaos.

Typically, a single block in a blockchain only touches a small portion of the blockchain "state" (account balances, smart contract code....).

Exploring Fully Homomorphic Encryption
Exploring Fully Homomorphic Encryption Exploring Fully Homomorphic Encryption

The holder of the private key \(k\) provides, as part of the public key, a "relinearization key", which you can think of as "noisy" encryptions of \(k \otimes k\) under \(k\).

Notice that the decryption equation \(\) is just a big sum of terms of the form \((ct_{1_i} * ct_{2_j}) * k_p * k_q\).

Another technique: matricesAnother technique (see Gentry, Sahai, Waters (2013)) for fully homomorphic encryption involves matrices: instead of representing a ciphertext as \(ct\) where \( = 2e + m\), a ciphertext is a matrix, where \(k * CT = k * m + e\) (\(k\), the key, is still a vector).

The fact that addition works is easy: if \(k * CT_1 = m_1 * k + e_1\) and \(k * CT_2 = m_2 * k + e_2\), then \(k…

For example:The forward fee (e.g., Alice→Bob) discourages spam; it must be paid even if the receiver refuses to relay the payment.

The backward fee (e.g., Bob→Alice) encourages prompt settlement by having a refund deadline.

Any ultimate receiver who wants to use hold invoices for longer than the remaining time will now need to pay the backwards fee.

Any intermediate hop who doubts the payment will succeed before the deadline will now reject the payment, allowing previous hops to also settle the failed payment before the deadline and receive their refund.

In discussion of the idea, it did not appear that any fatal issue was discovered, although it was unclear how much enthusiasm it generated.

● CVE-2020-26895 acceptance of non-standard signatures: in some cases, LND would accept a transaction signature that Bitcoin Core would not relay or mine by default.

This is a consequence of the S value in Bitcoin ECDSA signatures being equally valid on either the high side or low side of Bitcoin’s elliptical curve (which, like all such curves, is symmetric).

Before segwit, inverting an S value—something anyone can do to any valid signature—would change a transaction’s txid, a problem known as transaction malleability.

In most cases, LND properly ensured it only sent low-S signatures that could be relayed.

Because anyone can invert any valid signature, LND was patched to allow it to transfo…

MuSig is a signature scheme that allows multiple signers to create an aggregate public key derived from their individual private keys, and then collaborate to create a single valid signature for that public key.

The aggregate public key and signature are indistinguishable from any other schnorr public key and signature.

It is, however, safe to precompute the nonces and exchange the nonce commitments early, moving one of the three rounds to the key setup stage.

This removed the requirement of exchanging nonce commitments at the cost of a more expensive signing operation.

The new MuSig2 scheme achieves a simple two round signing protocol without the need for a zero-knowledge proof.

This would ensure routing fees couldn’t be stolen by an earlier hop that deliberately failed a route.

● LN upfront payments: in the current LN protocol, the attempt to route a payment can lock part of a routing node’s funds for hours or days.

This would eliminate the bug but also require wallets to upgrade in order to be able to pay taproot users.

A previously proposed alternative would be a backwards-compatible restriction on bech32 address lengths.

This only directly provides safety to taproot users receiving payments from spenders who upgraded their wallets to enforce the new length restrictions.

This week, BIP322 author Karl-Johan Alm posted to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list an alternative proposal for message signing that would use a technique called virtual transactions.

The first virtual transaction would be deliberately invalid by attempting to spend from a non-existent previous transaction (one whose txid is all zeroes).

● Research into conflicts between timelocks and heightlocks: A post to the Blockstream engineering blog describes an interaction between different types of Bitcoin time locks (timelocks) and block-height locks (heightlocks).

All transactions since Bitcoin’s initial release have had an nLockTime field.

If a transaction’s nLockTime is equal to or above 500 million, it must be below the block header’s time (in epoch time).

Both conditions are true today—but they can’t both be satisfied using a transaction’s single nLockTime field.

The post notes that the same problem can apply when a transaction has multiple inputs each with their own script.

● Continued coinswap discussion: in discussion continued from two weeks ago on the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list (see Newsletter #112), several contributors developed and analyzed potential attacks against a proposed routed coinswap protocol.

If the counterparty, or a watchtower agent of theirs, is monitoring the block chain, this will fail—but the attempt will cost the attacker nothing.

The most promising solution was to require anyone spending a coinswap UTXO to spend part of the value of one of their other UTXOs to transaction fees.

This collateral payment would eliminate the costless aspect of the previously described attacks.

Each of these transactions includes the same two outputs with the same two amounts—one paying Alice and one paying Bob—but with slightly different scripts.

Similarly, if Bob unilaterally closes the channel, Alice gets a chance to spend his funds using a revocation key he created.

What Fournier proposed this week was only creating a single commitment transaction that would be shared between Alice and Bob.

When creating the transaction, Alice creates two private keys she’ll need to spend her output and gives Bob the corresponding public keys.

The other private key Alice created is the revocation private key, which she’ll give to Bob if she wants to revoke this channel state in favor of a late…

● Proposed uniform tiebreaker in schnorr signatures: the elliptic curve cryptography used in Bitcoin requires identifying points on Elliptic Curves (ECs).

This can be done unambiguously using a 32-byte X coordinate and a 32-byte Y coordinate.

However, if you know a point’s X coordinate, then you can calculate the two possible locations for its Y coordinate.

The BIP340 specification of schnorr signatures for Bitcoin currently uses a tiebreaker method to minimize the amount of data needed to identify EC points in public keys and signatures.

This was recently changed so that public keys used a different algorithm based on the evenness of the coordinates, which was believed to be easier to impl…

The rich get richer, since they have the capital to risk to earn the governance tokens.

Then, as governance token plutocrats, they can use their power to direct the protocol in ways which only further enrich themselves.

At the time of this writing, Uniswap liquidity has risen to nearly $2 billion, while SushiSwap liquidity has fallen to less than one fourth of that.

While I’ve said the Uniswap team did a lot right in this token launch, the question remains, why launch a token at all?

Is there more to UNI than that, or are these governance tokens little more than viral marketing schemes?

Before SushiSwap was even launched as an exchange, it was possible to earn Sushi tokens by providing liquidity to Uniswap.

The Sushi token price has recovered some of its losses.

Will users and liquidity migrate back to Uniswap once the rush to farm Sushi tokens dies down?

Understanding Open SourceThe term "Open Source Software" doesn't just mean the source code is available to view.

Instead, the term refers to projects that make their source code available with broad permission to modify and share that source code without restriction.

There are two broad classifications of licenses widely accepted in the open source world.The first family of open source licenses is so-called "copyleft" licenses, sometimes referred to as "viral" licenses.

Open source development is frequently thankless work, and while some exceptions certainly exist, there generally aren't great business models available for purely open source projects.

On Tuesday, August 4th, the Medalla ETH 2.0 testnet was launched.

If all goes well, this will be the final testnet before the launch of the “Phase 0” mainnet.

It’s expected the testnet will run for a minimum of 2 months before a schedule for mainnet is proposed.

Live and LaunchedTo kickoff the Medalla launch, the Ethereum Foundation hosted a livestream that nearly 2,000 people attended.

The ETH 2.0 launchpad tool made it simple to configure and run your own validators, and there were over 20,000 signed up to do so on day one.

What The Heck is Yield Farming? — Issue No. 104 What The Heck is Yield Farming? — Issue No. 104

To understand this, we need to add the next layer of the system: governance.

The governance token, called COMP, would be distributed to users in a way similar to those weighted polls of the past.

Users began intentionally lending or borrowing on Compound with the explicit goal of earning, or “farming,” COMP.

What's made it possible so far is high demand for the base governance tokens of protocols like Compound.

Even in the best case scenario, demand for these governance tokens must eventually level off as they reach a fair market valuation.

Kanye West, Joe Biden, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett were among dozens of accounts that tweeted the scam.

The first is obvious: a Bitcoin giveaway scam was used to monetize this attack.

This changed when the same scam tweets began to be shared from the personal accounts of high profile people, starting with Elon Musk.

Link As the afternoon wore on, many more high profile accounts began tweeting the scam, and it became apparent the hacker had hit more than a third-party tool.

Several hours later, presumably after Twitter addressed the issue, the accounts of these high profile users became accessible again to the user.

I sent the first issue of Build Blockchain out to fifty subscribers on June 3rd, 2018.

In such a world, Bitcoin could exist as an asset on the Ethereum network, and both would benefit for it.

These applications increase the usefulness of Bitcoin, and thus the demand for it, all without the Bitcoin network itself having to make any tradeoffs in terms of complexity or security.

A decentralized network, and the smart contract code that runs on it, is all that is needed.

The term antifragile was coined by Nassim Taleb, an author whose books have done much to shape my view of the world.

Money PrintingI wrote extensively about about central bank money printing in issue 90 of this newsletter, so I won't dwell on here.

While the standard narrative amongst most crypto folks is that money printing by the Fed will lead to massive inflation of the US Dollar, I'm not convinced that's a given.

Sure, the government is printing money, but the credit market has contracted and demand for dollars globally has skyrocketed.

If nations in the developing world try to print their way out of economic trouble, there may be inflation of those local currencies.

As news broke that these early coins had moved, Bitcoin's price dropped sharply.

Lerner named this the "Patoshi" pattern, and the block where the recently moved coins were mined did not adhere to it.

Maybe, maybe not, but the truth is, if people find Bitcoin's distribution unfair, they'll be less likely to adopt it.

More precisely, the existence of these 1.1 million BTC, and the risk that they'll be recovered someday, probably depresses Bitcoin's price even today.

While I do see Satoshi's coins as a liability, any attempts to "fix" this problem would probably prove more perilous than the coins' continued existence.

This leaves open the question of constructing publicly verifiable zero-knowledge proofs from blockchains.

Next, a publicly verifiable zero-knowledge proof system is provided, based on any blockchain (i.e., not only proof-of-stake) that, very roughly, satisfies the following unpredictability property.

The proof system is secure against a verifier/prover that can corrupt blockchain players adaptively.

A motivating example is the cross-chain asset mapping service which maps cryptoassets on one blockchain to tokens on another blockchain for inter-chain operability.

Unconventional blockchain features like on-chain identity and Kusama’s “Human Blockchain Project” have also flourished beyond expectations.

The Covid lockdown coupled with novel technology and a plethora of hackathons resulted in substantial developer adoption.

Since the last Our Network report in January when Substrate had ~600 Github stars, over 2500 new developers have starred the repository, indicating a rapidly growing interest in this battle-tested blockchain framework.

The Polkadot repository alone has gone from 150 to ~1800 in that same timeframe.

Our two main hackathon events - Hackusama and the Gitcoin Hello World event (the largest Gitcoin event to date by participation) - had 50…

The Handshake economy of scale is evolving at a rapid pace.

If you’re familiar with the three body problem in mining from Anicca Research, you’ll see a similarly emerging mining economy of scale.

Coupled with a decentralized naming economy, and all the composable economies of scales that follow it up the value chain, the Handshake network effect will be of the most lucrative and diverse we’ve seen in crypto to date.

We’ve illustrated this concept using a repurposed version of their graphic to give you a 2D model of the naming/mining economy, so you can further understand its second order effects on actual states.

Where Hegic differs from its competitors is its unique liquidity pool design for writing options.

There are three core participants of the Hegic network that eloquently interact with one another to create the Hegic system: option writers, option buyers, and staking lot owners.

Hegic utilizes a novel bidirectional liquidity pool (LP) design, that allows ETH or wBTC to be provided as liquidity, used to sell both put and call options.

Premiums paid by option buyers are paid to the LP, however, similarly profits from in the money options are paid out by the LP.

Through embracing one of DeFi’s most successful and novel constructs, liquidity pools, in one month, Hegic has attracted $32m of liquid…

The final KPI is prizes awarded.

The V3 of the protocol introduced the ability for anyone to add additional prizes to the pool.

This proved quite popular and thus far over 30 tokens representing most major DeFi protocols have been added to the prize.

Total prizes awarded by the V3 protocol already exceed $13,000 in the first two weeks.

In comparison, the V2 awarded $35,000 over the course of 14 months.

A higher gas limit means pools can produce larger blocks, which some have worried would lead to an increase in pools’, and thus the network’s, uncle rate.

However, we have shown in a previous post that there was no statistically significant increase in the uncle rate after the gas limit was increased by 25%, implying that a much higher gas limit can be safely deployed.

At the same time, our observation was that despite the deployment of an advanced Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) infrastructure, the uncle rate wasn’t diminishing towards zero.

We used the block-to-BDN entry point to measure because it clearly indicates scenarios where BDN helps and where it is less effective.

Different types of transactions (txs) incur different gas costs, as simple transfers consume much less gas than complex contract calls.

For example, on October 18 there were 64,223 txs on xDai, with a combined gas usage of 12,636,889,295 gas ($12.64 USD equivalent on xDai).

The following day, there were 75,252 txs and gas usage was 12,423,232,652.

This tells us that on Oct 18 there were more complex contract calls - and the data corresponds to Circles UBI contract activity.

(Note at an ETH price of $400.00, 9.4B gas usage is equal to $3,760.00)

This is issue #42 of the on-chain analytics newsletter that reaches 5500 crypto investors every week 📈Data-Driven Crypto JobsAnalysts, researchers, and other members of the Our Network community are increasingly reaching out to me in search of opportunities to work in the space.

Here are some of the best open roles available now:This week our contributor analysts cover DeFi: Uniswap, 1inch, DODO, Kyber, and dYdX.

Uniswap users spent over $12.7m on gas over the past 30 days, the highest volume of any Ethereum-based smart contract.

We realize that failed transactions, in which users still have to pay for gas fees, are a major issue especially at times of network congestion.

DODO is a nascent liquidity protocol that is gaining popularity and traction among liquidity providers and traders alike.

Two of the most important performance indicators for an on-chain liquidity provider like DODO are total value locked (TVL) and trading volume, as they directly measure the platform’s available liquidity, trader participation, and capital efficiency.

After a brief dip in TVL and volume at the conclusion of the first iteration of the DODO Carnival community incentive programs, DODO has seen a rebound in both key metrics.

As of October 8, DODO has $115.33M in TVL and $21.12Min 24-hour trading volume (Source).

Delegator Loyalty: Like account growth, the unprecedented delegator growth on Tezos has slowed.

High growth at low volume over the past year means a majority of new delegators are small investors who try Tezos delegation for the first time.

Despite the 3x price increase and the equally drastic -46% price drop over the summer, delegator loyalty is unbroken and churn rates are starting to decline again.

Out of a total of the 74k delegators, 71k delegate to active bakers, about 3k to inactive bakers.

The majority of 72.3% (39.4k) public delegator accounts are loyal accumulators who re-invest payouts or top-up their balances.

Another way to illustrate this effect is to look at the ratio of a long-term supply band over a short-term band.

The following chart shows the ratio of supply held for 1-2 years over supply held for 7-30 days.

The ratio has historically peaked during periods where price is decreasing or going sideways and hit lows as price peaks.

Currently the ratio is at levels similar to January 2016.

Our first guest is one of the biggest names in crypto art, and one of the most mysterious.

For crypto art it’s currently closer to the second one, the freelancer model, however, there is an important detail.

What advice would you give creators who are interested in exploring crypto as a new model for selling their work?

And I think that’s kind of also a cool way for people to support the artist.

Doing Old Things Better Vs. Doing Brand New Things
Doing Old Things Better Vs. Doing Brand New Things Doing Old Things Better Vs. Doing Brand New Things

New technologies enable activities that fall into one of two categories: 1) doing things you could already do but can now do better because they are faster, cheaper, easier, higher quality, etc.

2) doing brand new things that you simply couldn’t do before.

Doing old things better tends to get more attention early on because it’s easier to imagine what to build.

The most common mistake people make when evaluating new technologies is to focus too much on the “doing old things better” category.

Early products like Salesforce were easier to access and cheaper to maintain than their on-premise counterparts.

And then in parallel, WebGL and WebRTC really seem to be enabling really interesting social experiments right now in terms of new social products.

Jesse: Kayvon touched on the idea of dynamic pricing in these markets, and I think that’s something worth double-clicking on.

And so you’re going to need to discover the new Jay-Zs and that takes risk and speculation.

And I think that’s been true of crypto, and maybe to a bigger degree than other technology platforms, because crypto is a finance innovation.

And I think that that’s going to be a very, very powerful model that’s proven out again in that 10-year timeframe.

You can’t just put out a token and expect that it’s going to blow up overnight and you’re going to be rich and famous.

In this discussion, which was recorded at our Crypto Startup School in April 2020, a16z General Partner Chris Dixon talked about building communities — specifically, communities of open-source developers — with GitHub cofounder Tom Preston-Werner.

They discussed how to engage early users, how to turn them into your biggest advocates, how to create superfans, and more.

Today, GitHub is the leading community for open-source developers and others.

They also discuss in-person communities vs. distributed communities, a topic that is very top of mind today.

We’re living in an unprecedented era of online collaboration, coordination, and creation.

But the word “members” is faceless, and doesn’t help us really understand, support (and better design for) these communities.

So what lessons of open source communities do and don’t apply to the passion economy and creator communities?

How does the evolution of online communities — really, social networks — shift the focus to reputation and status as a service?

And what if working in public is also about sharing in private, given the “dark forest theory of the internet”, the growing desire for more “high-shared context” groups and spaces (including even podcasts and newsletters)?

Building AI systems today is increasingly a problem of coordinating large-scale and widespread data-collection efforts.

The problem of the long tail is the hairline crack at the foundation of today’s AI power structure.

But it doesn’t yet explain, however, why the long tail, in particular, is often so problematic.

And, contrariwise, why would the demand side ever pay good money for the mad ravings of an untrained neural network?

With this new bit of logic, our neural network begins to take on a life of its own as a self-funding, autonomous entity.

Joining this conversation are a16z managing partner and tech investor Jeff Jordan, who has long followed the evolving relationship between sports and tech.

Also joining is Jesse Walden, a former a16z crypto partner and co-founder of Mediachain.

We discuss the evolution of models for fan engagement; how social media has changed the game; and where technologies like cryptonetworks and blockchains come in.

The Crypto Price-Innovation Cycle
The Crypto Price-Innovation Cycle The Crypto Price-Innovation Cycle

Led by our crypto data scientist, Eddy Lazzarin, we analyzed 10 years of data, including Reddit comments in crypto subreddits, Github commits in crypto repos, and Pitchbook funding data (more on the methodology below).

The First Cycle: 2009-2012The first crypto cycle peaked in 2011.

A key feature of crypto cycles is that each one plants seeds which later grow and drive the next cycle.

The Third Cycle: 2016-2019The third cycle, reaching its peak in 2017, is when the broader implications of crypto captured mainstream attention.

As DeFi protocols gain traction, they become part of an increasingly complex DeFi system.

Level 3: Price OraclesBuilding on the transaction layer, price oracles are the next foundational piece of infrastructure.

Secure and verifiable inputs of market data are critical to the functioning of DeFi protocols.

These products often provide smart contract constructions that enable users to interact with other Ethereum DeFi protocols.

In the long run, OXIO aims to financialize the largest, most ubiquitous commodity in the world that is not yet financialized: mobile connectivity.

Let’s touch on some unique ideas and use-cases that OXIO enables:Nike could offer their customers mobile connectivity.

Using OXIO, brands can not only engage with their customers in new ways, but learn valuable insights.

Given the LTV of their customers, brands can subsidize their customer’s connectivity, either in full or in part using OXIO, or simply create engagement-driven loyalty programs.

In doing so, OXIO will introduce capital markets to mobile connectivity.

As a result, it’s more important than ever for DeFi projects considering liquidity mining to think carefully about their incentives, and to design their liquidity mining programs to retain capital after get-rich-quick wash traders disappear.

In this essay, we explore the design space of liquidity mining and outline a framework by which DeFi teams can construct a useful liquidity mining program that incentivizes long-term capital retention.

DeFi's Invisible Asymptotes
DeFi's Invisible Asymptotes DeFi's Invisible Asymptotes

While there are certain instances in which DeFi protocols offer lower rates today, these protocols are structurally handicapped.

Moreover, because DeFi protocols cannot underwrite trust relationships, they require higher collateralization ratios, further increasing the (opportunity) cost of capital.

And this is despite the fact that DeFi trading volumes are ~1% of CeFi trading.

To put that in perspective, crypto CeFi trading is .1 - 1% of trading across traditional asset classes (excluding FX).

The Lightning Network is viewed by most as a decentralized, permissionless Visa network for Bitcoin, bringing high throughput and low latency payments to the network.

State of Lightning: Payment Channels & HTLCsAs described in the 2015 paper, the Lightning Network facilitates bidirectional payment channels chained together using HTLCs.

In the five years since its proposal, the Lightning Network has grown at a rapid pace.

Using TLVs combined with Keysend, the Lightning Network becomes an incentivized, onion-routed data network.

Web3 developers should seek to build on an open, interoperable, permissionless standard, instead.

In decentralized networks, this includes everyone involved in investing, building, operating, using, or otherwise participating in the network.

But the interplay between ideology, reality, and financial incentives will remain a key influence on how systems of network governance are designed and evolve.

Good decentralized network governance is one that steers the network through its various stages of development towards more innovative and socially useful functions, while adequately resolving conflicts between different stakeholders participating in or affected by the network.

More democratic forms of network governance are currently underexplored and raise a number of difficult questions.

Stop Burning Tokens – Buyback and Make Instead
Stop Burning Tokens – Buyback and Make Instead Stop Burning Tokens – Buyback and Make Instead

In most “buyback-and-burn” token models, a network generates income in one currency token and uses the proceeds to buy-back and “burn” its own native token.

The intent is to grow token value by reducing its supply as income grows.

Unlike outstanding shares, treasury shares can’t vote or participate in the economics of the organization.

By reducing the number of outstanding shares, buybacks improve certain valuation ratios (e.g.

The buyback alone does all the work because what affects the price is how many shares participate, not how many exist – and treasury shares don’t participate.

Balancer Thesis
Balancer Thesis Balancer Thesis

Instead of paying fees to portfolio managers, investors earn fees for contributing their assets to Balancer pools [2].

The larger a Balancer pool gets, the less slippage there is when someone is trying to source one of its assets.

With decreasing slippage for key assets, Balancer positions itself to attract more traders as it becomes a more competitive venue for many of their desired positions.

An LP can contribute to an existing Balancer pool or create their own.

This flexibility has allowed Balancer to be a fertile ground for experimentation, alongside the deep liquidity pools it’s accumulating ($200M and counting).

Why Stake When You Can Borrow?
Why Stake When You Can Borrow? Why Stake When You Can Borrow?

As smart contract platforms autonomously manage billions of dollars of capital, quantifying the portfolio risk that investors engender in these systems is increasingly important.

Recent work illustrates that Proof of Stake (PoS) is vulnerable to financial attacks arising from on-chain lending and has worse capital efficiency than Proof of Work (PoW).

Numerous methods for improving capital efficiency have been proposed that allow stakers to create fungible derivative claims on their staked assets.

This model combines birth-death Pólya urn processes and risk models adapted from the credit derivatives literature to assess token inequality and return profiles.

This model also applies to Decentr…

Geometric mean market makers (G3Ms), such as Uniswap and Balancer, comprise a popular class of automated market makers (AMMs) defined by the following rule: the reserves of the AMM before and after each trade must have the same (weighted) geometric mean.

These results include the returns and no-arbitrage prices of liquidity pool (LP) shares that investors receive for supplying liquidity to G3Ms.

Using these expressions, we show how to create G3Ms whose LP shares replicate the payoffs of financial derivatives.

These strategies allow LP shares to replicate various trading strategies and financial contracts, including standard options.

G3Ms are thus shown to be capable of recreating a variety …

Financial capital outpaces the installation of new technologies, in part because financial capital is responsible for speculating new technologies into existence.

In the process of capitalizing itself into relevance, this boom of crypto capital has built a native financial system to account for its very own bootstrapping.

While the other revolutionary technologies no doubt led to evolution within the existing financial system, none of them built an entirely new financial system from scratch.

To delineate between this superior financial system and its predecessor, I’m going to use meatspace+digital to refer to the incumbents.

Blockchain enthusiasts often criticize traditional institutions for their tendency to concentrate resources and decision-making authority.

But token-weighted governance without system design features that counteract centralization are clearly open to similar criticisms.

As a result, large token holders are faced with a dilemma: abstain from participation to stay true to the ethos of decentralization, or seek to govern in a way that doesn’t disproportionately benefit powerful actors at the expense of other stakeholders.

Proof of Liquidity
Proof of Liquidity

In a standard proof-of-stake system, the more people stake, the more tokens are taken out of circulation. This may seem good for the price of the token, but in many cases insufficient liquidity can get in the way of network growth. So we should look for ways to create a direct, positive relationship between staking and liquidity. One idea is to use Balancer pool tokens as proofs of liquidity that can be staked in place of the network’s token, such that its liquidity grows together with staking.

There’s a huge opportunity in introducing the efficiencies of smart contracts to existing frameworks.

For example, Decentraland, an Ethereum-based virtual-reality world, recently migrated governance over its network to an Aragon DAO.

But we’ve also seen individuals set up single-member Aragon DAOs to manage their own assets in a secure vault, and companies using Aragon internally to keep transparent records.

It uses encryption, smart contracts, and staking with the Numeraire token (NMR) to create a trusted, decentralized venue for exchanging data.

Economic imbalance and growing inequality is the new normal, but there is nothing natural about sustained economic imbalance.

The one constant in bitcoin is its fixed supply; there will only ever be 21 million bitcoin, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

Setting aside taxes and regulatory capture for a moment, if one wants to acquire bitcoin, he or she will have to provide value in return, and bitcoin will become the arbiter of that value.

By making the nominal amount of bitcoin zero-sum, it ensures that the economic system is non-zero sum.

Here’s how a health certificate and contact tracing system using LSATs might look:We start with a known and respected testing service that establishes a well-capitalized Lightning node.

Using the LSAT system and lightning node’s public key associated with it, payments or subsidies could be offered to those able to present a valid proof-of-test LSAT.

A related challenge is adoption of lightning and bitcoin and some of the stigmas associated with these technologies that continue to persist.

VoB: The End of the Beginning
VoB: The End of the Beginning VoB: The End of the Beginning

A few weeks ago, I gave the attached presentation (see below) at the Value of Bitcoin Europe conference (June 3, 2020).

The presentation discusses recent and unprecedented actions taken by the Federal Reserve in response to global macro crises.

Through the end of May 2020, the Fed digitally created $2.9 trillion dollars over the course of a 13-week period.

While investors in the mainstream will rationalize it as crazy but necessary to stave off a crisis, it is more appropriately “crazy but still crazy” and marks the end of the beginning, which is the title of the presentation.

The central banking model trades short-term stability for long-term volatility while bitcoin trades short-term vola…

Let’s first define the terms here one more time, and then proceed to the non-naive, private Stake Certificates.

ConclusionWe propose Stake Certificates, a new solution to channel jamming.

Since this might be useful in other contexts (Sybil-resistance of many kinds, proof-of-ownership), discussing Stake Certificates is even more useful.

The Growth of Bitcoin Merge Mining
The Growth of Bitcoin Merge Mining The Growth of Bitcoin Merge Mining

Regular vs blind merge miningIt is also important to explain and identify two theoretical types of merge mining: regular merge mining and blind merge mining.

Regular merge mining is conducted by Bitcoin miners, while blind merge mining can normally be conducted by anyone, who then pays Bitcoin miners in fees.

Characteristics of regular vs blind merge miningRegular merge mining Blind merge mining Who conducts the mining?

Unfortunately, as far as we are aware, currently merged mining is primarily conducted the regular way, and blind merge mining is relatively rare.

Examples of blind merge mining systems include two competing proposals: an earlier proposal from Paul Sztorc’s (who identified ma…

Abstract: In this short piece, 100x Group grantee Calvin Kim provides a quick update on the development of the Utreexo implementation.

Calvin is now looking forward to focusing on performance, integration with existing Bitcoin implementations, and adding robust tests to the codebase.

Last year, when my first PR was merged, the Utreexo project was just past its proof of concept stage.

With the merge of https://github.com/mit-dci/utreexo/pull/192 which revamps the disk-storage for Utreexo bridgenodes, I believe we’re a step further in completing our implementation of the Utreexo project.

In one case, an independently run Bitcoin node witnessed the transaction sweeping away funds occur just 0.670 seconds after it saw the original transaction enter its memory pool.

Battle of the dexes
Battle of the dexes Battle of the dexes

Lack of liquidity – Liquidity on the dex was low and there was little incentive to be a market maker.

For example if the pool contains 4,000 USDT and 10 ETH, the ETH price can be calculated as 4,000/10 = $400.

However, the lack of a native UniSwap token created an opportunity for copycat dexes, to use UniSwap’s methodology, while adding a native token.

The recent defi boomRecently defi has enjoyed phenomenal growth and dexes such as UniSwap have been key to the defi success.

Therefore, even if USDT and WBTC become the dominant tokens on the dexes, defi is still somewhat interesting, in our view.

Eventually, towards the end of the softfork window, two different softforks, a flag day softfork (BIP148) and an 80% miner threshold softfork (BIP91) made signalling for the Segregated Witness softfork mandatory and therefore it finally activated.

That was a really really crazy time for me with all the farming going on.

One of the problems with defi tokens until that point was that they were pretty illiquid.

DS: Perhaps not many of the current community share this aspiration of mine, but I really really want to see synthetic stablecoins outside of the USD being used outside of trading purposes and as an alternative to “official” digital fiat currencies.

don’t really like buy-and-burn models because you need to assume going concern and a secondary market bid.

I almost didn’t even want to farm the YFI tokens because I was thinking, “What would they govern, and why would they govern?

Even inside the crypto market or equities market, there exist many different products, many different time zones etc.

I think BTC is the clear denomination for the biggest players in crypto, that’s your CZs and miners and exchanges.

So I think BTC has the network effect as the base money and that is very hard to overcome.

Therefore I think ETH is currently in a more precarious situation than people realise:The ETH 2.0 roadmap is very complex.

The roll-up roadmap is promising but I don’t think it will deliver the things people are hyping it to be.

Today, I’m sitting down with Su Zhu, my co-host and friend, to talk about the state of the crypto market and what he’s seeing on the horizon.

But in practice, what has happened is that the largest players in crypto itself just use it as a money market.

If you don’t need to make money on trades … so, people who LP in Uniswap don’t need to make money, right?

So, to say that because he’s short selling – it kind of just tells you the mood of the market, right?

But in Ethereum Defi, there’s this big meme around like, oh you never sell, oh you never do this or do that.

You’re, you’re giving the market a market order.

Because if you’re letting your long expire, you’re basically if you’re market neutral, you’re presuming, you’re saying the market that you’re going to now bid spot to replicate your exposure back to get your long back.

Bitcoin and the intolerant minority
Bitcoin and the intolerant minority Bitcoin and the intolerant minority

Someone on Twitter asked me about the thesis that an intolerant minority can defend Bitcoin.

I think the concept of the intolerant minority is frequently misapplied in Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is less defended by an intolerant minority than it defends against an intolerant minority.

When a sufficient number of people from the otherwise-tolerant majority disagree with a special interest group, they can branch into their own special interest group.

The more intolerant it is, the larger special interest groups need to be.

It’s entirely plausible that we could regain the heady $20,000 level within the next few weeks or months.This time, it’s happening without much fanfare, and without the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) phenomenon which intensified the price action (investors bought BTC in order to participate in ICOs, driving the price up).If you gauge metrics of retail investor interest in the asset, whether it’s tweets or google searches, Bitcoin is still languishing well below it’s highs.
