Former Ripple Board Member Tapped to Lead Biden’s OCC: WSJ
Former Ripple Board Member Tapped to Lead Biden’s OCC: WSJ Former Ripple Board Member Tapped to Lead Biden’s OCC: WSJ

Michael S. Barr, a former U.S. Treasury Department official and onetime member of Ripple’s board of directors, is likely to become the next Comptroller of the Currency, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

If named and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Barr will succeed Brian Brooks, the former Coinbase executive who served as Acting Comptroller for the last half of 2020.

The news comes days after Politico first reported that Barr was under consideration, alongside law professor Mehrsa Baradaran.

Barr joined Ripple’s board of directors in 2015, though a company spokesperson confirmed he was no longer a member earlier this week.

The spokesperson did not immediately respond to a question a…

‘Let’s Not Be Bitcoin’: Yearn Finance Considers Minting $200M in New YFI Tokens
‘Let’s Not Be Bitcoin’: Yearn Finance Considers Minting $200M in New YFI Tokens ‘Let’s Not Be Bitcoin’: Yearn Finance Considers Minting $200M in New YFI Tokens

Bitcoin may be the original cryptocurrency, but that doesn’t mean leading decentralized finance (DeFi) projects aren’t feeling self-confident enough to distinguish themselves from Satoshi’s vision.

Last year, Cronje put up a proposal himself to never mint any more YFI and it seemed to pass.

“What we had in September was a classic case of misalignment between stakeholders in the YFI community,” Spencer Noon, now of Variant Fund, told CoinDesk.

“Don’t give away your tokens,” Cronje wrote.

Yearn is currently earning around $100,000 per week in fees, and community member Ryan Watkins contended that this could be better reinvested in Yearn itself.

Tether Use on Tron Passes Ethereum as Low Fees Attract Small Transactions
Tether Use on Tron Passes Ethereum as Low Fees Attract Small Transactions Tether Use on Tron Passes Ethereum as Low Fees Attract Small Transactions

The number of tether transactions on the Tron blockchain have passed Ethereum’s count for three consecutive weeks as fees on the number two blockchain remain high.

Total weekly tether transactions on Ethereum have held steady at around 1.5 million for the past four weeks.

“As fees go up, [tether] transactions tend to shift from Ethereum to Tron,” Maddrey said.

But which network claims the largest share of Tether transactions is still somewhat of an open question.

Tether transactions skewing heavily toward just one or two blockchains wouldn’t be surprising, Maddrey told CoinDesk.

Adult entertainment website Pornhub, which last month was booted off mainstream payment networks, has added a fellow outcast to its lineup of acceptable cryptocurrencies: XRP.

The massive video site began taking payments in USDC stablecoins sometime in the past month, according to The Block.

The additions bring the total number of cryptocurrencies users can pay for Pornhub premium subscriptions to 16.

Litigation against XRP issuer Ripple Labs alleging the token is an unregistered security has prompted over a dozen exchanges to delist the token, making the Pornhub move a rare recent win for the cryptocurrency.

Profit-taking occurred in the spot market during Asian market hours after bitcoin failed to consolidate around the record high of $40,000 in the past week.

Instead, they are either taking profits by selling on the spot market or executing arbitrate trades by shorting the spot market.

Data from on-chain analytics firm CryptoQuant also indicates there is selling pressure on the spot market.

Ki told CoinDesk one indicator to watch is bitcoin outflow from Coinbase, usually a metric that implies an institution’s bitcoin purchase via over-the-counter desks.

Once significant bitcoin outflows from Coinbase take place, bitcoin’s price could recover and even go up as high as $100,000, he said.

“Right now, low interest rates tell us there’s no evidence that we’re borrowing too much money,” Stanford economist Erik Brynjolfsson said.

“I think the greater risks are still on the side of secular stagnation and low interest rates,” Summers said.

“It’s possible, even likely, that government policy over the coming year will change that and start bringing interest rates back up,” Brynjolfsson said.

“The Fed may monetize some of that [debt] by printing money.”Right now, the markets are screaming for more debt.

Nasdaq-listed bitcoin mining company Bit Digital (BTBT) dismissed allegations of fraud against the company made in a recently published report by J Capital Research.

Without specifically naming the report, a press release from the mining company responded to “false accusations” about its business.

J Capital also called Bit Digital a “sham bitcoin business,” claiming to have verified with local Chinese government officials that Bit Digital has “no bitcoin miners” there, casting doubt over the legitimacy of its Asia-based mining operations in China.

Since then, Bit Digital shares have dropped over 35% to around $16.

BlackRock did not state which commodity exchange it will choose to execute bitcoin futures buys.

However, the funds may only invest in cash-settled bitcoin futures.

It’s for this reason that some keen observers think it’s not just bitcoin that’s in a bubble, but the entire financial system.

In that sense, it’s really the perfect post-modern financial asset for a post-modern financialized economy.”So is bitcoin …

The derivatives market is considered the biggest market in the world on a notional basis, eclipsing even the ballooning world debt market by four times.

However, on a gross market value basis, the derivatives market is considered significantly smaller.

Why crypto markets should careThe crypto markets are growing and maturing, which means, inevitably, more crypto derivative products will be available in the market for institutional and retail investors to trade.

It is still very early days of crypto derivatives.

The question is, will the crypto derivatives market create it, fuel it, or help mitigate the negative fallout?

With the price of BTC down and a new report out on the decrease in criminal crypto activity, CoinDesk’s Market’s Daily is back with the latest news roundup.

Add Markets Daily to your Alexa Flash Briefing here.

Today's stories:Bitcoin fell from $36,000 to $34,000 Wednesday morning, despite continued buying from investors.

While many respondents saw bitcoin as a major bubble, 25% believed it could double its price tag to north of $70,000 by the start of 2022.

Partly offsetting the positive trend is an explosion in ransomware attacks, which rose 311% from 2019.

Even after setting a new record high of $1,439 on Monday, the rally for Ethereum’s ether cryptocurrency may have only just begun, according to Fundstrat Global Advisors strategist David Grider.

Basing his prediction partly on use cases for Ethereum’s blockchain technology, Grider wrote in a note Tuesday that ether has scope for a rally to $10,500, according to Bloomberg.

That’s an over seven-fold rise from the current price of $1,320.

Ethereum is also eyeing transaction processing ability to rival card payment giants with a major network upgrade, per the report.

The self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator claims that he owns both the Bitcoin whitepaper and the domain name bitcoin.org, their letter argued.

The lawyers of self-proclaimed Bitcoin creator Craig Wright have demanded that websites bitcoin.org and bitcoincore.org remove Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper from their platforms, alleging that it violates copyright laws.

In response, Bitcoin.org’s pseudonymous owner Cobra has refused to do so, arguing that the Bitcoin whitepaper was published under the MIT license, allowing for free distribution.

Furthermore, Satoshi Nakamoto has a known PGP public key, therefore it is cryptographically possible for someone to verify themselves to be Satoshi Nakamoto.

Yesterday, an anonymous bettor on Polymarket, an Ethereum-based betting market, put down $25,000 that Joe Biden would not be inaugurated “in-person” outside the Capitol this morning.

That whale is now in a $1 million hole on Polymarket, according to data compiled by Polymarket Whales, having lost $354,229 on bets that Trump would win the election.

But, because this is a betting market, the price of those shares fluctuates depending on how other people are betting.

The crypto market bears are back today, as Bitcoin and Ethereum—the market’s leading coins—are both experiencing significant losses.

Bitcoin today shed nearly $2,000 from its price, dropping as low as $33,500, in a matter of hours.

Meanwhile, Ethereum sank by roughly $1,000 after hitting a fresh all-time high above $1,400 yesterday.

Crypto traders and investors remained optimistic, however, considering the coin is still well above its 2017 all-time high, and the recent rise in institutional investment in Bitcoin could mean its price could rise further still.

The world’s largest altcoin has dropped 7% from its recently registered all-time high.

к августу текущего года, уверены в криптоинвестиционной компании Pantera Capital.

В апреле прошлого года компания дала прогноз динамике стоимости биткойна до августа 2021 года.

Он предполагал, что 15 января стоимость актива составит $38 тыс., на самом деле в этот день она поднималась до $39,7 тыс.

На начало 2021 года на их долю приходится 86% рынка, четыре года назад было около 50%.

В компании назвали четыре фактора, которые будут оказывать позитивное влияние на рынок в 2021 году: новые меры поддержки экономики США, низкие процентные ставки, рост участия институциональных инвесторов в крипторынке и развитие сферы децентрализованных финансов (DeFi).

Немного математики и прогноз по биткойну Немного математики и прогноз по биткойну

Цель — развить понимание изменения курса биткойна и проверить новые подходы к объяснению ценовых колебаний и их прогнозированию.

Поскольку сейчас, по этой классификации, мы находимся в фазе роста, на ней я пока что и сосредоточился.

И, как будто это было естественно, оба тренда вновь объединяются, как будто сознательно двигаясь к общему целевому результату.

Тем не менее, важнейший вопрос и для меня, и для многих других биткойн-энтузиастов, состоит в том, когда именно будет достигнут ценовой максимум.

Существуют и нативные для криптовалют индикаторы, которые могут быть полезными в идентификации подобных ценовых пиков: MVRV и MVRV-z, HODL-волны, NVT/NVT-signal и др.

Президент США Джо Байден может назначить бывшего советника Ripple Майкла Барра главой Управления контролера денежного обращения (OCC) в составе Минфина США, сообщает The Wall Street Journal со ссылкой на осведомленные источники.

Барр был помощником министра финансов по финучреждениям во время президентства Барака Обамы. В 2015 году он стал членом консультативного совета Ripple. В настоящее время Барр не входит в него. Белый дом, Минфин и сам Барр не прокомментировали ситуацию.

Главный стратег финансового конгломерата Barclays Джеральд Мозер считает, что биткоин непригоден для институциональных инвесторов. Об этом сообщает Financial News. По словам Мозера, волатильность биткоина не позволит пенсионным фондам и другим крупным инвесторам вкладывать средства в криптовалюту на долгосрочной основе.

«Инвесторы просто исключат криптовалюту из портфеля при очередной оптимизации», — отметил он.

По мнению Мозера, высокая доходность биткоина обусловлена участием розничных покупателей немного больше, чем институциональными вложениями. Также стратег заявил, что биткоин не подходит для диверсификации рисков. В качестве причины специалист назвал отсутствие выраженной корреляции …

During the DeFi Summer of 2020, YAM Finance launched with a bang, and had its share of ups and downs within its first couple of days.

Rethinking the Justice System: A Digital Jurisdiction for Decentralized Organisations
Rethinking the Justice System: A Digital Jurisdiction for Decentralized Organisations Rethinking the Justice System: A Digital Jurisdiction for Decentralized Organisations

In today’s world, life and business is moving more into to a virtual space and this has of course been accelerated as a result of the Covid pandemic.

Now more than ever it is important to rethink the very basis of how we organise, make decisions, and structure the world’s governance.

Web3 infrastructure can provide the foundations of a digital jurisdiction.

In the Web3 world rules are enforced by decentralized governance and DAOs allow for a group of stakeholders to participate in governance of an organisation that has no affiliation to a nation state.

How do we treat that in the judicial system and how does it sit within existing national jurisdictions?

Torus is an open-source and universal key management system for the Web3 ecosystem.

Torus runs a Distributed Key Generation protocol built on Shamir’s Secret Sharing.

The Torus Wallet is the second layer to the system and allows one-click login and authentication on partners including Gmail, Facebook, or passwordless logins on Web3 applications.

Notably, clever cryptography makes it possible for users to send crypto to social accounts that don’t yet have crypto wallet.

For example, one could send crypto to a Twitter username, which could be claimed once the recipient creates an account.

Hasu & Kain Warwick: Diving Deep Into Liquidity Mining
Hasu & Kain Warwick: Diving Deep Into Liquidity Mining Hasu & Kain Warwick: Diving Deep Into Liquidity Mining

Crypto is largely reliant on incentive mechanisms, and liquidity mining is one of the more recent cryptoeconomic incentive models to emerge.

When decentralized exchanges need liquidity, they can leverage liquidity mining to incentivize users to provide it.

In turn, the “miners” generate revenue, generally in the form of a native tokens, proportional to their share of liquidity in a pool.

Kain Warwick is the founder of Synthetix, a company creating synthetic assets for DeFi, enabling exposure to fiat currencies, commodities, and cryptocurrencies.

They joined us to explain the key concepts behind liquidity mining, how and why it was created, and its increasingly important role in DeFi.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Click to download audio versionIn the aftermath of the so-called "Black Thursday" crash from several weeks ago, MakerDAO's "DAI" ethereum backed dollar pegged stablecoin came untethered and was, for a time at least, functionally insolvent.

In the aftermath, holders of the MKR token which allows holders to participate in governance decisions opted to do a couple of things, including adding the centralized stablecoin USDC to the list of acceptable collateral, which drew both condemnations mostly around centralized risk being added to the system and praise for making the system more robust against sudden ETH collateral price crashes.

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.

Сегодня вместе с Алексом Романовым, CTO Beam, мы выясняем, как Beam «вылечили» уязвимость протокола MimbleWimble к сетевым атакам и начали строить децентрализованную финансовую систему без ончейн-вычислений.

Заодно обсуждаем новинки в протоколе Beam: платежные каналы и атомарные свопы.

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.

Китайские майнеры давным-давно, в том числе, строят фермы и в Канаде, точно также они строят в Вашингтоне, в Штатах.

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?

Bitcoin is increasingly under threat from a growing body of patents collected by companies inside and outside of the Bitcoin industry.

Back in 2016, we established our defensive patent strategy in the form of our Patent Pledge.

Taking our defensive patent strategy one step further, today we’re joining forces with Square Crypto in the Cryptocurrency Open Patent Alliance (COPA), announced yesterday.

The Patent Pledge is legally binding, ensuring that the patents safely become free to use for all, even non-members.

Shared patent library: Members commit all of their cryptocurrency patents to a patent pool available for other members to also use defensively.

Esplora and Other Alternatives to ElectrumX Esplora and Other Alternatives to ElectrumX

Running Your Own Electrum ServerBy default, the Electrum wallet app connects to a random set of Electrum servers.

So if you’re using an Electrum wallet, we generally recommend that you run your own Electrum server and connect your wallet to that instead.

Less well known is the fact that Esplora comes bundled with an optimized Electrum server based on a separately-maintained fork of Electrs.

This week, we introduced P2P discovery as an optional feature to Esplora too, which makes Esplora the only other alternative for running an Electrum server designed for public wallet connections.

While the advanced setup may put off some personal server users, Esplora makes a great option for those loo…

Although the mobile app can’t yet be used to create a new 2-of-3 account, you can import your Blockstream Green desktop wallet on the mobile app so that any 2-of-3 accounts created on desktop will also appear on mobile, ready for use.

However, with the launch of Blockstream Green Desktop, it’s with a heavy heart that we will be retiring the classic GreenAddress desktop app over the coming weeks.

Any previously-created GreenAddress or Blockstream Green wallet can be restored to Blockstream Green Desktop using your 24-words mnemonic backup.

Coordination, Good and Bad
Coordination, Good and Bad Coordination, Good and Bad

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.

Trust Models Trust Models

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This week’s newsletter describes a new proposed Bitcoin P2P protocol message, a BIP for the bech32 modified address format, and an idea for preventing UTXO probing in proposed dual-funded LN channels.

However, the BIP37 mechanism being used to suppress transaction relay allows the initiating node to request full transaction relay at any time.

Transaction relay consumes node resources such as memory and bandwidth, so nodes need to set their connection limits with the assumption that each BIP37-based low-bandwidth blocks-relay-only connection could suddenly become a full transaction relay connection.

If no problems are found with the proposal, it is expected that bech32m addresses will be use…

● Trampoline routing: Bastien Teinturier posted to the Lightning-Dev mailing list a new specification for trampoline routing that allows a spender to pay a receiver without calculating a route between their nodes.

Instead, the spender routes their money to a nearby trampoline node that calculates the next part of the route—getting the money either to the receiver or to the next trampoline node.

Teinturier notes that ACINQ has been running a single-bounce trampoline node for users of their Phoenix wallet.

LN has always provided some robustness against this type of problem: if your node is offline, your channel counterparty will eventually close the channel so that they can start spending their funds again.

This will send your funds to the onchain part of your LN wallet, which you hopefully backed up using a normal BIP32 seed.

The downside of the above approach is that you have to wait for your counterparty to decide that you’re not coming back.

Until the payment eventually times out, each channel used to route the payment is unable to use those funds to route other user’s payments.

Previously proposed solutions for this problem (and related problems) mostly involved upfront fees, see Newsletters #72, #86, #119, #120, and #122.

This week, Naumenko and Riard proposed that each payment include proof that its spender controlled some amount of bitcoin.

Each routing node could then publicly announce its policy on how much value it would route given proof of a certain stake value.

This would allow someone to route a payment through Alice’s node but limit how much of her capital they could tie up.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

( Issue 23 , November 4th, 2018)This week was a good microcosm of where we are in the crypto world.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

When TWAP is below $1, the protocol issues ‘coupons’ as incentive to temporarily remove supply from circulation by burning ESD.

Key protocol metrics have been growing steadily, with SushiSwap’s volume and liquidity reaching new highs in January.

Over the last three months, SushiSwap’s liquidity and volume have grown by 480% and 1600%, respectively.

After forking Uniswap, SushiSwap launched on its first day with 40% of the volume share between the two top AMMs.

After accounting for swap fees, a Uniswap LP would have suffered -40% loss vs. +30% gains without IL.

Revenue growth per pool coincided with increased co-investment limits.

Co-investment limits are governed by the BancorDAO and determine the maximum number of BNT that can be emitted by the protocol to match single-sided non-BNT deposits.

This BNT has no price impact on the external market; rather, it is emitted directly into the liquidity pools where it remains earning fees for the protocol until the BNT and its accrued fees are burned.

This is akin to the protocol investing money on marketing to drive usage, then allowing the investment to pay itself off over time.

Currently, 54.95% of total BNT supply is staked within the protocol.

But 2020 was the year when DEXs started dominating on-chain flows - in particular Uniswap.

Fund Flow Ratio for all exchanges is the ratio of network transaction volume of exchanges among the entire tokens transferred on the network.

For now, only 5% of the network transactions are used for exchange deposits/withdrawals.

The amount of bitcoin held on exchanges has been declining since March, and has reached its lowest level since late 2018.

Secondly, this trend could suggest that institutional investment into bitcoin is increasing.

Institutional investors are more likely to use OTC solutions for large purchases, as opposed to centralized exchanges.

Lastly, this could be a reaction to the increased regulatory scrutiny on crypto exchanges throughout 2020.

Although painful in the short-term, increased regulatory clarity will likely help the industry mature in the long run.

DeFi continues to offer high yielding interest rates for crypto dollar depositors.

Even the most battle-hardened interest rate protocols dwarf traditional finance and create a compelling alternative to the negative interest rate environment we currently live in.

The two major interest rate protocols, Aave and Compound, offer lower rates on DAI than some of the other players with 4.2% and 3.1% APY, respectively.

However, when you factor in COMP incentives (2.4%), the DAI lending rate on Compound beats out Aave at 5.5% APY.

With that said, Aave just launched V2 and will soon introduce AAVE yield farming into its money markets.

Creators and businesses that rely on internet platforms are subject to sudden rule changes that take away their audiences and profits.

From the 1980s through the early 2000s, the dominant internet services were built on open protocols that the internet community controlled.

Much of the software running on an Apple device is open source, as is almost all modern cloud data centers including Amazon’s.

This has allowed these companies to outpace the growth of open source software and maintain control of critical internet infrastructure.

It took twenty years for open source software to supplant proprietary software, and it could take just as long for open services to supplant proprietary service…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Balancer Thesis
Balancer Thesis Balancer Thesis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Liquidity Provider Returns in Geometric Mean Markets

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Proof of Liquidity
Proof of Liquidity

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

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

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

Bitcoin Softfork Activation Methodology
Bitcoin Softfork Activation Methodology Bitcoin Softfork Activation Methodology

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.

Based on our illustration we think there are essentially six reasonably likely choices when it comes to modern softfork activation.

Activation logic to be included in Bitcoin CoreIn favour of including activation logic in Bitcoin Core Against including activation logic in Bitcoin Core If the activation methodology is not implemented in Bitcoin Core, then there is the problem of achieving coordination over the activation parametersAt the same time,…

But I think that the right way to think about multi party computation is basically just an implementation of multi signature.

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

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

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

Hasu 58:04Yeah, I think that’s, I think that’s spot on.

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.

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.

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.

I’m, I’m, I’m just personally not a fan of that design pattern.

Because I’m, I’m, I’m also a interesting it’s, it’s interesting how my, my feelings on this has changed over the last few months.

And, and so, so, so that’s, that’s, that’s originally where our discussion started.

So yeah, that’s, that’s, that’s hopefully a step in, in a, in a better direction.

Which, which, again, I’m, I’m, I’m happy to, to, to challenge and fight and to see where it goes.

And, and, and that’s, that’s still the purpose of the yearn system overall is to maximize APR for its LPs.

And that’s where I’d like to see it as well, because I’m, I’m, I’m a, I’m a big, I’m a big advocate for sustainable yields.

Like it’s, it’s, I’m, I’m, I’m really actually unhappy with it, but at the same time, it was very interesting to see, but, but I, I traced all of the sell events.

So, so I’m, I’m, I’m tempted to say that that’s already, I’m already observing that.

But again, that’s, that’s, that’s one of those, those fascinating side effects that like, like so much has already happened, that I could not predict them in any kind of design ideas.

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.

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…
