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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BitPay cooperated with OFAC as the agency investigated the charges.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This all happened during South Sea mania.

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

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

Zug-based crypto broker and custodian Bitcoin Suisse has partnered with the canton, converting cryptocurrency payments into Swiss francs for the tax office.

According to the Zug Canton website, residents can request to pay taxes in cryptocurrency and will be emailed a link taking them to the crypto payment option.

What happens when a country like Ethiopia puts Bitcoin to the ultimate stress test?

Ethio Telecom (the State-owned monopoly provider) introducing TeleBirr is a decades-late step in the right direction toward digital money.

In contrast with fiat currency bitcoin is non-inflationary, incorruptible and immutably secured by precious (and increasingly renewable) energy.

Aside from a Telegram group and an Amharic language translation of “The Little Bitcoin Book”, little itcoin educational material exists in Ethiopia.

The NRCC intends to process the donations using BitPay, a cryptocurrency payment service provider, and would apparently accept donations in a variety of different cryptocurrencies.

The politicians chose the payment processor to instantly convert to dollars before the cryptocurrency donations land in the NRCC account.

Previous sound money, gold specifically, was thought to be the greatest immutable commodity in the world.

The very fiat tomfoolery which enables non-productive academia to proliferate is responsible for such encouragement of processed food consumption.

Indeed, on a physical level, processed food itself is entirely unlike anything found in nature.

Bitcoin is recognizable, organically treasured, and verifiably sound money.

While a stretch, the connection between Bitcoin and carnivory, is, at least in part, due to a desire for food as verifiably un-altered as bitcoin.

A CBDC is a digital version of a fiat currency (like the British pound or US dollar), backed by a central bank.

Some, but not all, CBDCs employ a blockchain, the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

He added that a UK CBDC would be “the safest type of money available” and “energy efficiency should be a core consideration” for its design.

According to Digitimes Asia, ASRock reported that while it expects sales of its graphics cards to grow rapidly this year, it's seeing shrinking demand from China's crypto mining sector.

China's clampdown on crypto mining was one of a number of factors that influenced last month's crypto price crash, which saw the price of Bitcoin drop to as low as $32,000.

Глава называлась «Почему Биткойн НЕ будет работать», что противопоставлялось заголовку предыдущей главы, которая называлась, как ни удивительно, «Почему Биткойн БУДЕТ работать».

Действительно ли это возможно, и если да, что это означает для устойчивости и будущего Биткойна?

Всё это дорого обходилось как в плане денег, так и в плане экологии, но с тех пор ситуация значительно улучшилась.

Возобновляемая энергетика, как и Биткойн, упрочила свои позиции и будет расти быстрее, чем любой другой сектор.

В глобальных масштабах, таким образом, это будет скорее перераспределение энергетических ресурсов, а не повышение требований, и это можно считать преимуществом сети Биткойна.

Глава мегарегулятора Эльвира Набиуллина назвала цифровые активы денежным суррогатом и объяснила сложность их регулирования на национальном уровне.

Банк России продолжает выступать против использования криптовалют для расчетов внутри страны, отметила глава ЦБ Эльвира Набиуллина.

В ходе выступления в Госдуме с ежегодным отчетом она сообщила, что позиция финансового регулятора по отношению к криптовалютам не изменилась.

Это денежный суррогат, и мы против того, чтобы криптовалюты, как частные цифровые, даже деньгами их не хочется называть, использовались для расчетов внутри страны», — отметила Набиуллина.

В январе 2021 г. в Brave добавлена поддержка InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) – ключевого элемента децентрализованного веба.

Brave – это браузер с акцентом на конфиденциальности и с поддержкой криптовалют, который по умолчанию запрещает сайтам следить за вами.

И это не случайно: Brave разработан на базе браузера с открытым кодом Chromium, на котором также основан Chrome от Google.

Майнеры поддержали обновление биткойна Taproot. Активация намечена на ноябрь
Майнеры поддержали обновление биткойна Taproot. Активация намечена на ноябрь Майнеры поддержали обновление биткойна Taproot. Активация намечена на ноябрь

Главное обновление биткойна за последние годы Taproot получило необходимую поддержку майнеров для активации в ноябре.

Taproot стал самым ожидаемым обновлением биткойна с момента активации Segregated Witness (SegWit) в 2017 году.

Во многом это уже возможно в биткойне, но с Taproot появятся дополнительные преимущества, например транзакции кошельков с мультиподписью на уровне блокчейна будут неотличимы от обычных.

На блоке 709 632, который, как ожидается, будет добавлен в сеть биткойна в ноябре, произойдет непосредственная активация обновления.

Тогда включенные в Taproot предложения по улучшению биткойна (BIP) автоматически начнут использоваться участниками сети, установившими необходимое обно…

Tesla снова начнет принимать биткойн, когда преимущественная часть майнинга будет вестись на возобновляемых источниках энергии, сообщил генеральный директор компании Илон Маск.

Tesla начала продавать электромобили за криптовалюту в марте, но уже в мае отказалась от нее, указав на опасения касаемо воздействия майнинга на окружающую среду.

По ее словам, Маск намеренно поднял цену биткойна заявлениями в Twitter, после чего ликвидировал значительную часть своей позиции на максимумах.

– Когда появится подтверждение приемлемого (~50%) использования чистой энергии майнерами с положительным будущим трендом, Tesla снова позволит осуществлять транзакции в биткойне».

Основателю Tesla Илону Маску стоит лучше изучить майнинг первой криптовалюты, поскольку он намного более экологичен, чем думают люди. Об этом в интервью Bloomberg заявил CEO биржи Kraken Джесси Пауэлл. Он признал, что могут быть более "зеленые" альтернативы биткоину. Но, по его мнению, люди переоценивают вред криптовалюты для окружающей среды. Добыча цифрового золота позволяет утилизировать большое количество избыточной и теряемой энергии, а также способствует развитию сектора электроэнергетики на возобновляемых источниках, считает Пауэлл. "Я не знаю, как долго Илон изучал майнинг, но надеюсь, он еще немного исследует эту тему", — сказал Пауэлл. Ранее Маск назвал условием возобновления прод…

Токен проекта IRON Finance обесценился.

В числе пострадавших — Марк КьюбанКоманда DeFi-протокола IRON Finance рекомендовала пользователям вывести средства из пулов после обесценивания токена IRON Titanium Token (TITAN) из-за «банковской паники».

Залог состоит из двух активов: в сети Polygon это USD Coin (USDC) и TITAN, а в BSC — Binance USD (BUSD) и STEEL.

Механизм эмиссии IRON предполагает, что для выпуска стейблкоина пользователю необходимо заблокировать в смарт-контракте 25% обеспечения в TITAN и 75% в USDC.

Команда IRON Finance предложила пользователям погасить токены в USDC, однако для этого необходимо подождать 12 часов, пока не пройдет временная блокировка.

Unlike exchanges that match a buyer and a seller, users transact with the smart contract itself.

By providing a flatter curve targeted for relatively stable pairs, Curve has established the lead position for these markets.

Curve is also leveraging its own token CRV to incentivize long-term adoption of the protocol and decentralize control of governance.

Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP)-1559 is a proposal to make several tightly coupled additions to Ethereum’s transaction fee mechanism.

Central to the design is a base fee, which plays the role of a reserve price and is meant to match supply and demand.

Every transaction included in a block must pay that block’s base fee (per unit of gas), and this payment is burnt rather than transferred to the block’s miner.

The base fee is adjusted after every block, with larger-than-target blocks increasing it and smaller-than-target blocks decreasing it.

Most of my projects, in white, they don’t actually show anything and just go to simplicity.

It’s actually DeFi that will be controlled by a centralized entity pretending to run a DeFi solution or maybe getting involved in blockchain.

I think that’s a sneaky move from them because they will, they are very likely to succeed.

I want to force myself to remind myself when I’m actually getting into this article as if I’m from the future.

This is an example of most of the staking as a service, they don’t actually support the vision of decentralization.

So there’s no unbiased, purely educational resource designed by financial advisors for financial advisors.

About this EpisodeThis week, Anna and James chat with Ben Jones and Mark Tyneway from Optimism, the builders of the first Optimistic Rollup live on Ethereum.

The interview continues the series of L2-focused episodes we have been airing on the Zero Knowledge Podcast and comes just as Optimism gears up for launch.

Anna, James, Ben and Mark discuss the inner workings of their Optimistic Rollup, diving deep into concepts like data availability, the fraud proof, the role of the sequencer and the rollup’s complex relationship with layer-one.

Ben and Mark then lay out their vision for rollup-centric Ethereum and how rollup interoperability is the next major focus area for the ecosystem.

About this EpisodeIn this week’s episode, Anna chats with Zac Williamson and Joe Andrews, respectively CTO and Head of Product at Aztec.

The episode is centered on Aztec’s latest release, zk.money, the “zk-zk-rollup” that targets privacy and scalability at the same time.

zk.money allows users to shield their Ethereum-based assets while achieving a higher transaction count, a result that took months of research and development of the TurboPLONK.

Zac and Joe explain how it works down to the nitty-gritty of elliptic curve arithmetic, logic gates, hashes and circuits.

or they can also act as borrowers to borrow in an overcollateralized way or undercollateralized way (think: one-block liquidity …

Episode 173: The Challenge of Building Private AMMs with Guillermo Angeris Episode 173: The Challenge of Building Private AMMs with Guillermo Angeris

About this EpisodeThis week, Anna & Tarun take an in-depth look into AMMs with Guillermo Angeris, a PhD student in Stanford who co-authored a number of papers on fundamental AMM properties.

They chat about how his work on Optimization Theory and Inverse Design can be applied to a DeFi context, as well as his most recent paper deals with privacy in AMMs, effectively demonstrating how superficial attempts at making a private AMM are doomed.

During the conversation, Anna, Tarun and Guillermo chat about why AMMs today are so revolutionary and unique in the financial world, and why their success can be explained by optimization theory and convexity.

But AMMs also have a number of shortcomings li…

Field Report: Using RBF and Additive Batching
Field Report: Using RBF and Additive Batching Field Report: Using RBF and Additive Batching

“Additive batching” is a scheme in which additional outputs are added to unconfirmed transactions in the mempool.

Replace By Fee (RBF, BIP125) and batching are two important tools for any enterprises directly interacting with Bitcoin’s mempool.

However, when you combine RBF and “additive batching,” emergent edge cases and dangerous failure scenarios present themselves.

In additive RBF batching, the service provider introduces new outputs (and confirmed inputs) to a transaction in the mempool to incorporate new customer withdrawals into an unconfirmed transaction.

There are many strategies to this type of additive RBF batching.

● Receiving LN payments with a mostly offline private key: in 2019, developer ZmnSCPxj proposed an alternative way to encapsulate pending LN payments (HTLCs) that would reduce the amount of network bandwidth and latency required to accept a payment.

More recently, Lloyd Fournier suggested the idea could also be used to allow a node to accept multiple incoming LN payments without keeping its private keys online.

The idea does have some downsides:The node would still need its private keys to send a penalty transaction if necessary.

The receiving node would lose privacy—its immediate peer would be able to determine that it was the ultimate receiver of a payment and not just a routing hop.

This week, Antoine Riard posted to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list the full disclosure of his previously privately reported finding that Bitcoin Core does not implement this behavior.

Riard analyzed how the inability to use inherited replaceability might affect various current and proposed protocols.

Only LN appears to be affected and only in the sense that an existing attack (see Newsletter #95) that uses pinning becomes cheaper.

The ongoing deployment of anchor outputs by various LN implementations will eliminate the ability to perform that pinning.

As of this writing, there has not been any substantial discussion of the issue on the mailing list.

● Miners encouraged to start signaling for taproot: miners who expect to be willing to enforce the new consensus rules for taproot are encouraged to begin signaling and to ensure they’ll be able to run Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 (described below) or other compatible taproot-enforcing software by the minimum activation block specified in BIP341.

Anyone wanting to trustlessly monitor signaling progress can upgrade to Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 and use the getblockchaininfo RPC.

For example, the following command line prints the number of blocks in the current retarget period, the number of those blocks which have signaled, and whether it’s possible for taproot to activate in this period (assuming there’s n…

For example, Alice’s wallet can automatically pay Bob offchain or onchain from the same payment channel—offchain using LN through that payment channel or onchain using a splice out (withdrawal) from that payment channel.

● Support for ECDSA signature adaptors added to libsecp256k1-zkp: signature adaptors were originally described for Bitcoin by Andrew Poelstra using schnorr-based multisignatures.

Beyond that, this technique makes signature adaptors entirely usable on Bitcoin today, and it’s what various DLC pr…

● Using LN offers to partly address stuck payments: in some cases, an attempt to pay an LN invoice can result in the payment becoming stuck for an extended period of time.

Until the failure is resolved, requesting a second invoice to make a second payment attempt can result in paying twice.

When paying a receiver with an established reputation, such as a popular business, that may be enough to eliminate stuck payments as a major problem.

The update to the offers specification also allows the receiver to indicate that they received the payment and the problem is with a downstream node.

This ability to communicate interactively is a clear advantage of offers over plain invoices.

To also use MTP for the time when nodes stop counting block signaling for a soft fork that hasn’t locked in yet.

However, in a difference from BIP9, the MTP stop time is only checked at the end of retarget periods where counting was performed.

Even though height may differ on those networks, they can all use a minimum activation height of 0 to activate within the window defined by MTP.

We hope this momentum to activate taproot continues and we’ll be able to rep…

The paper uses its conclusions to provide a routing algorithm that it claims can reduce payment retry attempts by 20% compared to their simplification of existing routing algorithms.

The new algorithm prefers routes with a higher computed probability of success, whereas existing algorithms use a heuristic approach.

The algorithm was tested against several example networks, including one dr…

This doesn’t prevent payment batching from being useful, although it does reduce its effectiveness.

In the second step, the service spends from one of its consolidated inputs using payment batching and achieves the best-case efficiency described above.

In addition to payment batching directly providing a fee savings, batching also uses the limited block space more efficiently by reducing the number of vbytes per payment.

The Bitcoin software used this by default when the public key material could be handled entirely by software.

Public keys in the original Bitcoin implementation were 65 bytes, but address hashes were only 20 bytes.

Additionally, discussion participants pointed out that anyone who shares their individual public keys or BIP32 extended public keys (xpubs) with third parties would also be at risk from a powerful QC if their public keys leaked.

However, a user who prepares ahead when creating their taproot address can also spend bitcoins received to that addre…

The development means Visa has become the first major payments network to use stablecoin as a settlement currency.

For its new USDC settlement capability, Visa is initially working with Crypto.com, letting the crypto firm manage its card business now entirely in digital assets.

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.

Protocol governance is divided along two axes: what can be controlled and who has control.

DigixDAO voted to return the ICO treasury to token holders as it was worth more than the governance tokens.

In contrast, governance token holders may want growth at any cost.

Generally, this involves having token holders lock up capital or prove that they are long-term orientated.

This can be blocked by preventing smart contracts from locking governance tokens, but also prevents multisig wallets from being used.

The Social Scalability Costs of FragmentationBeyond the lack of certainty outlined above, fragmenting applications across shards and roll ups creates explicit new social coordination costs that are not present in single-shard systems.

Announcing Venture Fund II Announcing Venture Fund II

Building on the success of our first venture fund, we’re proud to announce that Multicoin Capital has raised a new $100M venture fund to back entrepreneurs building companies (equity), and protocols (tokens) in and around the crypto space.

Our single largest investment in our first venture fund was Helium, which represented almost 12% of the fund.

We helped seed or fund many of these projects early—The Graph, Solana, Torus, StarkWare, and others—out of our first venture fund.

We expect to deploy a significant amount into these areas out of Venture Fund II over the next few years.

We made several investments in some of the most strategic layers of the stack out of our first venture fund.

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

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

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

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

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

The Perpetual Protocol
The Perpetual Protocol The Perpetual Protocol

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

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

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

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

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

While Swivel offers more leverage for interest rate speculators than ZCB protocols, Swivel does not offer fixed-rate borrowing, and so we are interested in the ZCB model as well because Swivel and ZCB protocols will serve different segments: Swivel for interest-rate speculation and fixed-rate lending, and ZCB protocols for fixed-rate borrowing.

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.

[4]Thought leadership and recommendations from reputable individuals or organizations are a key source of normative guidance on DAO governance.

In addition to technical specialization in network operation, software development, and cybersecurity, other areas of DAO governance are also increasingly professionalized (e.g.

Professionalization of DAO governance encourages homogenization.

And given that DAOs are often set up to run radically new experiments, growing isomorphism in DAO governance is not a foregone conclusion, even though that is what the anecdotal evidence discussed above seems to support.

Varying degrees of isomorphism in DAO governance are simply a reflection of how different o…

The Original Sin The Original Sin

This piece is about one thing: what is the initial distribution of the capital that underpins a cryptonetwork?

In a recent conversation between the Placeholder and USV teams, Fred Wilson commented that with organizations he’s experienced going south over time it can often be traced back to an original sin at inception (team, approach, economics or any other pivotal decision).

For crypto, an original sin we regularly observe is insiders owning too much of systems that are marketed as public, egalitarian networks.

At Placeholder we have targeted 1-5% network ownership on a fully-diluted basis, with Placeholder’s most concentrated position coming in at 7% ownership fully-diluted.

We present a method for constructing Constant Function Market Makers (CFMMs) whose portfolio value functions matches a desired payoff.

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

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

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

We demonstrate …

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

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

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

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

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

It may therefore seem premature to think about sy…

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

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

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

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

This value proposition hit a chord: in its first 8 weeks of life, over 1,000 open source projects published their code to the Radicle network – and growing day by day.

In February 2021, Radicle launched an Ethereum blockchain integration along with the creation of the RAD governance token.

Third, it enables decentralized funding of open source projects.

This alone is a big innovation, prone to catalyze a new era of open source funding.

We have been working with the Radicle development team for over three years, but this launch is just the beginning of the network’s journey.

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

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

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

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

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

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

When Does the Tail Wag the Dog? Curvature and Market Making When Does the Tail Wag the Dog? Curvature and Market Making

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

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

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

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

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

The Great Automaton
The Great Automaton The Great Automaton

The entire work process, up to the finished product, is performed by automatic machinery and with repetitious mechanical uniformity; the entire factory becomes one single automaton.

[…] And just as the work processes which result in the end product are performed by an automaton, so the end product itself is very often an automaton designed for repetitious mechanical work processes.

There are some important caveats to this emphasis on the role of digital automation in driving human action.

If governed responsibly for the well-being of all, the Great Automaton in the making has a lot of potential for good.

Can one hear the shape of a CFMM? (Part 1)
Can one hear the shape of a CFMM? (Part 1) Can one hear the shape of a CFMM? (Part 1)

If a CFMM has zero curvature, the price reported by the CFMM doesn’t change, no matter how much is traded.

One of the main connections between analysis and algebra comes from the notion of intrinsic curvature.

For instance, the intrinsic curvature of a beach ball doesn’t change when you rotate it by any amount in any direction.

How does this relate to the intuitive notion of CFMM curvature?

But how does this curvature related to the interaction between a CFMM, as a primary market, and other, secondary markets?

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.

Bitcoin transaction fees, how they’re calculated, and how to pay lessBitcoin is by far the most valuable and therefore most heavily demanded cryptocurrency, but there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

One of the more challenging aspects of understanding bitcoin is the paradigm shift in how transaction processing works, which often causes quite a shock for users who encounter high fees for the first time.

The concept of personal sovereignty has always been important to me.

For someone like myself, trying to tackle the technical aspects of bitcoin was quite daunting.

I quickly realized that to achieve the personal sovereignty I was after, I would need to learn an entirely new skill set and get comfortable with the technology.

For many people, this can be daunting and often prevents them from ever experiencing the financial freedom that Bitcoin natively delivers.

For me, self-sovereignty was what motivated me to take control of private keys and understand the technical aspects of bitcoin.

It’s admittedly uncomfortable, but unfortunately this is a primary reason why so many people die without an estate plan.

Dying without an estate plan can impose a serious cost to loved ones, both financial and psychological.

An estate plan is a set of written documents that functions like a detailed instructional manual to third parties.

To coordinate the two documents, you name your living trust as the beneficiary of your Will.

Bitcoin is the Great Definancialization Bitcoin is the Great Definancialization

Financialization has been so errantly normalized that the lines between saving (not taking risk) and investing (taking risk) have become blurred to the extent that most people think of the two activities as being one in the same.

The unending devaluation of monetary savings forces unwanted and unwarranted risk taking on to those that make up the economy.

You might regard money minted in a democracy as being ‘the people’s money’, and wonder if Bitcoin is less democratic than fiat.

For an Out of Order Block Validation, we could simply provide the UTXO set needed to validate a block.

We then compare the hardcoded UTXO set at block 100,000 with the calculated UTXO set at block 100,000.

Here’s an example of an actual hardcoded Utreexo Roots in json:We can then modify the Block validation function to use Utreexo Accumulators instead.

Transaction Fee OverviewWhen evaluating new transaction fee proposals such as EIP-1559, it is important to consider the purpose of transaction fees on a blockchain network such as Bitcoin or Ethereum.

Chatting with the developers, they told me they had come to Hong Kong to educate the miners about Bitcoin and have a friendly discussion.

“If Bitcoin Core wants to be part of Bitcoin, it needs to do this hardfork,” he said.

If the hardfork activated and the network split, the larger block nodes would consider the smaller block chain as valid, while the smaller block nodes would consider the larger block chain as invalid.

However, the number of blocks actually flagging support for Bitcoin Classic was fairly low, and not many users appeared to be running Classic nodes.

The lightning network represents an improvement in efficiency and uses a more logical payment-network structure.

The blocksize issue was a problem now, while the lightning network was highly complex, unproven and, in the best-case scenario, many years away from becoming usable.

At the time of writing, although the lightning network is gaining traction and the technology is rapidly improving, merchant adoption of the lightning network is limited.

However, I am still optimistic about the lightning network and, if one thinks decades ahead, success is still a possibility.

A Florida-based Bitcoin developer called Luke Dashjr had figured out a hack, which made SegWit possible as a compatible (softfork) Bitcoin upgrade.

With people arguing over the blocksize limit, the proposal removed the limit and replaced it with something else, thereby negating the argument.

Therefore, to many small blockers fixing this issue was a prerequisite to a blocksize limit increase.

Most large blockers believed that fixing these bugs should not be a priority; it was the blocksize limit that was key.

Some of the large blockers appeared to simply have cause and effect the wrong way around.

The scientific merit format was certainly how many small blockers wanted the space to evolve.

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

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

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

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

Episodes #17-18: Discussing the Defi Top 20 with Arthur0x, Su Zhu and Hasu Episodes #17-18: Discussing the Defi Top 20 with Arthur0x, Su Zhu and Hasu

After our episode on the top 20 crypto coins (#15) by market cap, we got a lot of requests to do one for Defi as well.

For that discussion, we brought in one of the foremost experts on Defi.

Arthur0x went from being one of the earliest users and investors at Synthetix, Aave, and Kyber, to running the largest Defi-focused fund in all of Asia.

The conversation ran pretty long, so we are releasing it in two parts.

Listen to Part 1Listen to Part 2We don’t have a transcript yet, but if you feel like writing one, feel free to PM me on Twitter or email it to hasu@uncommoncore.co.

In this paper, we introduce our model of Bitcoin’s security, which depends on a surprisingly small number of factors.

We find that Bitcoin can tolerate a high incentive to attack today, but the declining block subsidy poses a substantial risk for the future.

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.

Su Zhu on the State of the Crypto Market  – UCC #12 Transcript Su Zhu on the State of the Crypto Market – UCC #12 Transcript

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.

So I think you’re right, but I think there’s some nuance there where it doesn’t have to converge.

So, I mean, in general, it depends on how specific we want to be on what is perpetual swap, right?

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.

Su Zhu (00:48:50):I think there’s, there’s a lot of there’s a lot of cool stuff that can be done.

Why this bull run is fundamentally different from 2017Bitcoin is nearing its prior all-time high (ATH), set in December 2017. 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. This is causing a fair amount of puzzlement.Many are wondering what the cause of Bitcoin’s renewed…
