‘A Race Toward Zero’: With Hashrate in the Clouds, Bitcoin Mining Is Less Profitable Than Ever ‘A Race Toward Zero’: With Hashrate in the Clouds, Bitcoin Mining Is Less Profitable Than Ever

Conversely, Bitcoin's hashrate has surged throughout 2020, propelled in part by mining farms financing new hardware to boost their operations.

Bitcoin mining is a resource war of attrition, so naturally, revenue margins are dwindling in a year when Bitcoin’s hashrate is exploding.

Bitcoin’s hashrate and mining revenue are inversely proportionalLuxor Mining pool operator Ethan Vera told CoinDesk that the anemic miner revenue is a direct result of Bitcoin’s growing hashrate, its relatively stagnant price and lower-than-usual transaction fees.

Much of this growth comes from ASIC financing, wherein miners take out loans to buy the best new-generation mining equipment.

‘Convincing’ Phishing Attack Targets Ledger Hardware Wallet Users ‘Convincing’ Phishing Attack Targets Ledger Hardware Wallet Users

Customers of Ledger, the hardware cryptocurrency wallet, are being targeted by a phishing attack posing as an email from Ledger support.

Ledger confirmed that, for the last week, a phishing attack has been targeting Ledger cryptocurrency wallet customers.

In a blog post revealing the hack, the Ledger team emphasized that users’ payment information and crypto funds are safe.

However, in their earliest applications, proof-of-personhood networks are already manifesting several of cypherpunk’s most far-fetched dreams.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced Tuesday that William Hinman, the director of the SEC’s division of corporation finance, is planning to conclude his tenure later this year.

Notably, Hinman was the first official at the agency to say that, in his view, the native currency of the Ethereum blockchain, ether (ETH), was not a security.

Hinman helped provide a framework that market participants could use to evaluate whether digital assets are offered and sold as securities.

A snapshot of variable DeFi lending rates.

In practice, this looks like many other DeFi lending schemes: You deposit ether (ETH) as collateral in exchange for the protocol’s token, fixed-yield dai (fyDai).

That token can then be swapped for dai into one of the six borrowing contracts with different expiry dates and stable rates.

Yet, stable interest rates are in demand in some places.

Light clients comprise the bulk of consumer-grade Lightning Network wallets from a handful of providers such as Lightning Labs, Phoenix, Blue Wallet, and other Lightning service providers.

This can certainly be accomplished, but it would take a very proficient hacker with a stellar Bitcoin and Lightning Network acumen.

He said cryptocurrencies must be "sufficiently decentralized" in order to not be deemed securities.

His legacy for the digital assets industry is a framework that crypto companies could use to determine whether or not cryptocurrencies constituted securities.

To get around the red tape, many cryptocurrency companies claimed their token sales did not constitute securities sales.

To help crypto companies cut through the thick weeds planted by regulators decades ago, Hinman created the Strategic Hub for Innovation and Financial Technology.

But I guess all protocols need to mind that some regulation might apply if they are not sufficiently decentralized.

В 2017 году Макафи предсказал, что биткойн достигнет $1 млн в течение трех лет, хотя в июле 2020 года он отказался от своих слов.

По мнению криптоаналитика Вилли Ву, многие состоятельные инвесторы рассматривают биткойн в качестве страховки от инфляции.

Банк России может запустить пилотирование цифрового рубля в конце 2021 года, заявила глава ЦБ Эльвира Набиуллина на пресс-конференции по итогам заседания совета директоров регулятора.

И по мере получения этих результатов будем двигаться дальше», — рассказала Набиуллина.

Набиуллина пояснила, что цифровой рубль — это уникальный код, который повысит прозрачность финансовых операций.

Будет ли кто-то еще, помимо ЦБ, иметь возможность видеть операции, будет зависеть от того, какой выбор будет сделан в рамках модели функционирования цифрового рубля.

Преимуществом цифрового рубля она назвала удобную электронную форму и возможность проводить расчеты оффлайн, когда даже нет доступа в интернет.

Крупнейшее заблуждение о Биткойне
Крупнейшее заблуждение о Биткойне Крупнейшее заблуждение о Биткойне

Самое крупное заблуждение насчёт Биткойна заключается в том, что его основная задача — платежи.

Не произошло это и с пузырём Саут-Си в 1720-е гг., да и со всеми другими спекулятивными пузырями в истории человечества.

Но значит ли это, что биткойн — это деньги?

Но на это не способна ни одна другая криптовалюта.

Сейчас Биткойн не подходит для проведения платежей, но это никому и не нужно.

Зуко Уилкокс: за четыре года Zcash добился больших успехов, но нам нужен миллиард пользователей Зуко Уилкокс: за четыре года Zcash добился больших успехов, но нам нужен миллиард пользователей

Ровно четыре года назад, 28 октября 2016 года, состоялся запуск основной сети Zcash (ZEC) - ориентированной на приватность криптовалюты. Тот день запомнился многим - в какой-то момент после старта цена монеты за секунды подскочила до 2600 BTC за 1 ZEC, или более $1,8 млн по курсу на тот момент. Сегодня Zcash занимает 33-е место по капитализации, что заставляет некоторых разочарованных инвесторов говорить о бесперспективности проекта. Но так ли это на самом деле? Какая судьба ждет Zcash, запуск которого ожидался с таким нетерпением. Даст ли ему новое дыхание

Аналитики отметили, что после предыдущего обвала биткоину понадобился 1181 день, чтобы обновить максимум 2013 года.

Активу необходимо достигнуть $20 тысяч до 11 марта 2021 года, чтобы не выйти за рамки предыдущего цикла обновления максимумов.

Глава центробанка Кении (CBK) Патрик Ньороге заявил, что перед разработкой и выпуском CBDC необходимо проанализировать возможные риски.

Эксперты связали значительное снижение показателя с сезонной миграцией майнеров в Китае.

Операционный директор HASHR8 Томас Хеллер отметил, что 25 октября в Сычуане закончился сезон дождей, и многие майнеры начали перенос мощностей по добыче BTC в провинцию Внутренняя Монголия или за границу Китая.

You'll notice this course is completely free, and there's a specific reason why I want it to be free.

Those are just APIs, specifications, and libraries—so long as you understand the core ideas behind how they work, you'll be able to figure out the details on your own.

Each lesson will have self-serve assignments tied to the course, both coding assignments and multiple choice questions to test your comprehension.

A Cambrian Explosion of Crypto Proofs
A Cambrian Explosion of Crypto Proofs A Cambrian Explosion of Crypto Proofs

By analogy, we are currently experiencing a Cambrian Explosion in the field of cryptographic proofs of computational integrity (CI), a subset of which include zero knowledge proofs.

The purpose of this post is to identify the common denominators of all CI systems implemented in code and discuss a few differentiating factors.

Takeaway: symmetric CI systems can arithmetize over any field, leading to greater efficiency.

¹ The term ZKP is often misused to refer to all CI systems, even ones that are not, formally, ZKPs.

To avoid this confusion we use the loosely defined terms of “crypto proofs” and “computational integrity (CI) proofs”.

During the 2020’s I think we’ll see the cryptocurrency market structure evolve to more closely resemble the traditional financial world, with these functions being separated out from a legal and regulatory point of view.

And that principle is this: when building mechanisms that decide high-stakes outcomes, it’s very important for those mechanisms to be credibly neutral.

Note that it is not just neutrality that is required here, it is credible neutrality.

Hence, the principle of credible neutrality, must also be augmented with another idea, the principle of efficacy.

Sometimes, this even means that if a credibly neutral mechanism to solve some problem has not yet been found, an imperfectly neutral mechanism should be adopted in the short term.

Credibly neutral mechanisms for solving many kinds of problems do exist in theory, and need to be developed and improved in practice.

Meanwhile, from the perspective of crypto outsiders (including many people, banks, and governments), anything concerning crypto is scary—no one controls it!—and decidedly not pragmatic.

First, we offered secure and simple crypto storage, which amounted to centrally storing decentralized currency.

Second, we allowed people to purchase Bitcoin and Ether, which meant buying crypto with fiat currency.

And you definitely created more crypto users overall by providing storage capabilities than by offloading that to the user.

Indeed, some advanced crypto users were quick to point out that self-custody is “simple” to do.

Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains
Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains

The solution then was an encrypted web-browsing protocol for the public internet called HTTPS.

We've developed a conceptually similar solution today for encrypted transactions on a public blockchain, called Zcash.

In a fully shielded Zcash transaction, the timestamp is public, but no information about sender, receiver, or amount is public.

Like HTTPS, fully shielded Zcash transactions prevent eavesdropping and protect financial privacy.

Just as HTTPS became standard on the public internet to protect credit card transactions, we believe strong encryption will in time become standard on public blockchains to protect cryptocurrency transactions.

Adan (Association for the Development of Digital Assets), is an organization which helps promote the development of the crypto industry in France, and more broadly in Europe.

The European Commission has released a regulatory proposal, MiCA (Markets in Crypto-Assets), which falls under The Digital Finance Package.

The Adan team have been working hard to understand, dissect and establish positions with regards to this regulation.

The scope of this MiCA is vast, and it covers nearly every type of activity which relates to cryptocurrencies, utility tokens, stablecoins, and security tokens in Europe.

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.

MacLane Wilkison: NuCypher – Proxy Re-Encryption for Distributed Systems MacLane Wilkison: NuCypher – Proxy Re-Encryption for Distributed Systems

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.

Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply Evan Kuo: AMPL - the Controversial Digital Currency With an Elastic Supply

Ampleforth is a cryptocurrency attempting to become an essential building block to an alternative financial ecosystem. The protocol’s native token, AMPL, is a non collateralized cryptocurrency, like Bitcoin, but with a twist: It is supply elastic. This means the token and protocol will automatically increase or decrease the quantity of tokens held in user wallets based on 24 hour weighted volume price. AMPL operates as an ERC-20 token on top of the Ethereum blockchain. Some claim that the Ampleforth protocol’s implementation of “countercyclical” economic policy makes it a good complimentary collateral because they posit that this mechanism ought to give AMPL a low correlation to the likes o…

Fernando Martinelli: Balancer – The Automated Market Maker Protocol for Programmable Liquidity Fernando Martinelli: Balancer – The Automated Market Maker Protocol for Programmable Liquidity

Balancer is a generalized automated market maker (AMM) protocol built on Ethereum. It allows anyone to create or add liquidity to customizable pools and earn trading fees. On one side there are liquidity providers (LPs) that generally seek to balance their holdings, and they get rewarded with trading fees. On the other side, traders that are looking for the best rate possible.One way to look at Balancer is as a generalization of Uniswap, however Balancer pools aren't restricted to the same 50/50 split between 2 tokens. A Balancer pool can support up to 8 tokens with any weights. It supports smart order routing which ensures trades get sent to the pools which provide the best rate possible. …

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

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

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.

With Aleo, developers can write private applications, without a background in blockchains or expertise in cryptography.

The release introduces a new programming language called Leo, a new community-driven package manager for Leo, and a new development environment or IDE called Aleo Studio.

We recently had Howard Wu, a co-founder of Aleo, on …

Episode 143: Josh Cincinnati on Zcash, governance and leaving the Zcash Foundation Episode 143: Josh Cincinnati on Zcash, governance and leaving the Zcash Foundation

About this EpisodeIn this episode we chat with Josh Cincinnati, the former executive director of Zcash Foundation.

We cover Josh's career before Zcash, his work at the foundation, the important role privacy plays in crypto and the challenges of decentralised governance.

We also discuss his decision to leave the foundation, Zcash Foundation's philosophy of transparency, his hopes for the future of the Zcash community, his next steps and why he thinks people in crypto may wanna take themselves a bit less serious and remember to have some fun!

Here are some additional links:As mentioned in the intro, the ZkValidator.com is now live on 3 networks: Cosmos, Kusama and, as of this month, Polkadot.…

Episode 142: Hasu & Georgios on Bitcoin Security & Elastic Block Size Proposals Episode 142: Hasu & Georgios on Bitcoin Security & Elastic Block Size Proposals

About this EpisodeIn this episode, Anna and guest host Georgios chat with Hasu, an independent crypto researcher focused on economics and security, about elastic block size proposals in both Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Trail of Bits found a bug in yVault that would have allowed an attacker to drain most (if not all) of the pool's assets.

They quickly reported the bug to the yVault team and were able to secure the roughly $400K USD held in the system.

For example, If you integrate multiple tokens, any one token could compromise the security of your entire platform.

On the other hand, if you integrate multiple platforms, your protocol could suffer from complex interactions.

About this EpisodeIn this week's episode, we chat with Brian Gu, a student at MIT and creator of the Dark Forest game.

We chat about education, blockchain based games and what inspired his work on the Dark Forest game.

We then dig into how this game creates an incomplete information game space by using zkSNARKs to create a “cryptographic fog of war” and more!

As described on their blog, Dark Forest is an MMO space-conquest game where players discover and conquer planets in an infinite, procedurally-generated, cryptographically-specified universe.

They are currently looking for a technical writer to help the Least Authority team write security research and audit reports, open source technica…

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.

Проект сейчас развивается в русскоязычном комьюнити, у них есть группа в Telegram (@solanarus), в Вконтакте у них есть даже группа.

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.

Что думаешь, что изменится и что не изменится за 4 года?

But in Beta, Lightning Loop will start to offer a new method of accessing the API that is based on the LSAT project for light-weight authenticated access of APIs.

In Beta, Lightning Loop will pre-check Loop In requests to help confirm that a swap can be completed before a transaction is sent-on chain.

This will help users save on chain fees and time-locked coins by proactively preventing liquidity errors.

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

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).

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.

● Alternative to BIP322 generic signmessage: the existing BIP322 proposes a generic message signing protocol for Bitcoin that would allow signing messages for any Bitcoin address (script) even if it used multisig or advanced features.

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).

The advantage of using virtual transactions, which were also adopted in the BIP325 specification for signet (see Newsletter #109)…

● 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.

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…

Fee optimization is possible through diverse techniques varying from segregated witness, transaction batching, RBF (Replace By Fee) and fee estimation.

We wanted to determine the transaction fees that could be saved, how that has changed over time and how it impacts block space and block weight.

After batching all potentially batchable transactions, we combine the size of the hypothetical block and compare it to the real block size.

This represents a percentage of around 27.36% over the grand total of transaction fees paid.

● New spending policy language: Nadav Ivgi announced a new language he’s developed named Minsc which makes it easier for developers to specify a set of conditions that must be fulfilled in order for a UTXO to be spent.

The new language is based on the miniscript policy language but adds the ability to use variables and functions along with several other features.

Minsc policies can be compiled to miniscript policies, which can be themselves be compiled into miniscript and used to produce regular Bitcoin Script.

It includes both a plethora of examples and a live compiler that allows linking to its input so that developers can easily play with the language and share their Minsc policies with …

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Note that this differs from splitting orders, as Bunny Hop considers the whole size of order for each hop.

Since its deployment in late August, there have been 40,083 hops until today and below we visualized all of them in a network.

Each node represents a token and its size shows how many times it’s been sourced in the hops.

For a while, PAX was the 2nd biggest stablecoin in number of senders but activity was driven mainly by the ponzi scheme MMM BSC.

Since peaking in May, activity has now dropped significantly.

The future of Paxos may not be PAX, but in white-labeling stablecoins for other parties such as Binance (and perhaps PayPal).

The two most successful SuperRare artists are Pak and Hackatao, who have earned $276k and $101k respectively in just this year alone.

In total, artists have earned over $2.8M on SuperRare and collectors have earned $865k from secondary sales.

Below is a chart of historical art sales for Pak.

Early collectors were able to acquire Pak pieces for just 3 ETH, which are now selling for 33-44 ETH.

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.

A glimpse into the SNX OTC market.

Over-the-counter markets tend to be opaque and marked by information that can be difficult or costly to obtain.

This makes OTC markets a really interesting topic in the context of DeFi and Ethereum, where market participants transact on a publicly verified ledger.

The OTC market for SNX is an important place for larger players to get bids filled without incurring much slippage.

Just 3.8% of all SNX are available on Binance, Uniswap, Kucoin, and Poloniex.

Liquidity mining remains a large factor in allocation of DAI across different trading venues and platforms.

The chart below shows DAI balance in stablecoin nominated AMMs (Curve & Swerve), balance in ETH/DAI pools (Uniswap & Sushiswap), balance in Balancer DAI/SAFE 98/2 pool, and lastly log DAI price from Coinbase USD pair.

As visible, the DAI price premium decreases as the allocation of DAI in stablecoin AMMs increases.

Increased supply of DAI in ETH/DAI pools does decrease the price, but is limited in effect due to additional trading fees, network fees and volatility of ether.

Observe how the first red bar visibly lowers liquidity in WETH & stablecoin nominated AMMs, which causes the abov…

Introducing ‘THL’ (Total HNS Locked): Covenants aren’t new, but understanding their economic implications for traders and speculators are.

Since covenants are encumbered UTXOs that exist as on-chain “smart contracts”(bitcoin script), any value that doesn’t leave them is taken from the circulating supply as they cannot currently be spent (similar to staked assets in a smart contract).

For Handshake, THL is the total number of HNS locked in Bid/Reveal/Register covenants at any given time, and can fluctuate as on-chain auction activity adjusts block-over-block, with over 26,760,000 HNS locked presently out of circulation - and important metric to watch as the chain grows in adoption.

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.

In parallel, WebRTC is really allowing for really interesting concurrent sessions around video.

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

And so, I think right now, in order to experience VR, you need a headset.

So, I think that’s another thing that we’ll see if it happens or doesn’t happen over the next decade.

And so, the fact that the applications have taken off so much, and it’s made this scaling problem like a really, really urgent issue.

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.

Where do “meta communities” or where does engaging key community leaders come in?

And when it comes to developer relations specifically, where should devrel sit in an organization (product, sales, engineering)?

How do you reconcile developer as customer vs. developer as community member?

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)?

The Long-Tail Problem in AI, and How Autonomous Markets Can Solve It
The Long-Tail Problem in AI, and How Autonomous Markets Can Solve It The Long-Tail Problem in AI, and How Autonomous Markets Can Solve It

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.

More than 98% of the information on the web is lost within 20 years, and huge gaps exist in our digital and cultural history.

Zoran Basich and Alex Pruden of a16z talk to Brewster Kahle and Sam Williams, who are using different approaches to attack this problem.

Kahle cofounded the Internet Archive, which is well known for creating the Wayback Machine that crawls a billion URLs every day.

Williams cofounded Arweave, a company that uses decentralized crypto networks to store information forever.

They also discuss how decentralized models offer the promise of building a next-generation web that works better for users.

So what’s hype/ what’s real — given this show’s throughline!

Finally: how does and doesn’t Section 230 connect to the First Amendment when it comes to companies vs. governments; what does “good faith” really mean and what are possible paths and ways forward among the divisive debates around content moderation?

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.

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.

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).

In fact, centralized exchanges like Binance, Huobi, and OKEx are already experimenting with DeFi protocols tied to their respective ecosystem tokens, and they’re engaging with external DeFi protocols as well.

As these experiments mature, DeFi protocols and centralized exchanges will continue to mesh together, accelerating the transition to open finance.

In this post, we explore the concept of trust and show how trust isn’t binary, but rather multi-dimensional.

Each property in this post will include three sub-sections: (1) its trust score spectrum, (2) top products and services in the space along this spectrum, and (3) market observations.

In the event that user funds are drained, there is no capital remaining for users to be compensated.

Protocols today span a wide spectrum of trust models and users are unlikely to understand the risks these models pose to their funds.

And with the exception of “insurance funds” to cover overleveraged defaults, DeFi protocols do not offer native insurance.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bitcoin held in smaller denominations continues to grow steadily, while bitcoin held in larger denominations continues to decline.

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…

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.

All the funds were swept away in a short amount of time and in one case, remarkably, the funds were taken in around 0.67 seconds.

Remarkably, three of the deposits were swept away before our transaction even got confirmed into the blockchain.

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.

This extremely fast sweep applied to the address with the passphrase “Call me Ishmael”, the opening line from the novel Moby-Dick.

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.

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.
