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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BitPay cooperated with OFAC as the agency investigated the charges.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Swiss canton of Zug has started accepting tax payments in cryptocurrency.

No partial payments in cryptocurrency will be accepted.

Zug has been dubbed “Crypto Valley” over the many industry companies drawn to the jurisdiction over its friendly blockchain and crypto regulation.

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.

How Bitcoin Solves The Store Of Value Problem
How Bitcoin Solves The Store Of Value Problem How Bitcoin Solves The Store Of Value Problem

It solves the store of value problem.

Gold is technically a store of value that’s broadly kept up with the money supply in recent decades, however, it is a failed store of value.

Lack of easily verifiable supply, not being salable, and largely centralized in practice make it fully unfit to store value.

However, real estate (especially residential) was never intended to serve as a store of value.

Conservatively, if we assume bitcoin solves the store of value problem better than bonds and real estate — and this is definitely true on a long enough time scale, as bonds have lost real value for over a decade — then we can safely assume it solves the store of value problem better than the bond ma…

In this episode of the “Bitcoin Magazine Podcast,” host David Zell sat down with one of D.C.’s strongest Bitcoin supporters, Representative Warren Davidson (R-OH), to talk about the specific language and potential impact of this cryptocurrency tax legislation.

Worse still, the additional compliance costs that this bill could trigger would gravely jeopardize the viability of companies and startups in the Bitcoin space.

In his view, passing the bill in its current form would be a disaster both for the cryptocurrency industry and the American economy overall.

Davidson spoke about how this bill marks a departure from America’s longstanding role as a nation that spearheads innovation.

What Caused This Mid-Cycle Bitcoin Price Correction
What Caused This Mid-Cycle Bitcoin Price Correction What Caused This Mid-Cycle Bitcoin Price Correction

The bitcoin price rallied last week, but the move did not come out of the blue.

I attribute this mid-cycle correction to three dominant and simultaneous narratives that, before resolved, caused major uncertainty and price declines.

These events affected sentiment in all segments of the bitcoin market — miners and retail, developers and high-net-worth individuals.

Grayscale Trust’s Record UnlocksThe second major cause of uncertainty in this period was the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) release schedule (highlighted in gray above).

Buying new shares from Grayscale requires Grayscale to go out into the market and buy bitcoin, causing a rise in price.

Most disagreements about bitcoin layers are due to the proponents talking right past each other.

Although we may not like it, the precedent of monetary layers has been established by history and we would need to redefine historical and semantic context to avoid Bitcoin’s association with monetary layers.

In Germany, special funds are mainly used for investments by institutions such as pension companies and insurers.

Under this new legislation, Dekabank would become just one of about 4,000 German firms eligible to buy Bitcoin.

Collectively, institutional investors that have access to Spezialfonds that can buy Bitcoin currently manage about $2.1 trillion.

Things just got ugly for crypto in Washington, D.C.For years, the threat of major regulation has been raised like a hammer, ready to smash the crypto industry.

The upshot is that the U.S. crypto industry is in the same position as the online gambling industry a decade ago when Congress regulated it out of existence.

There is also the matter of that $28 billion of taxes the crypto industry is supposed to provide.

If the U.S. crypto industry has to become road kill to make that happen, few in Washington will bat an eye.

All of this reflects poorly on U.S. elected officials, but the crypto industry bears responsibility too.

На самом деле, криптовалюты и NFT – это абсолютная катастрофа не только в плане экологии, а по гораздо большему количеству причин.

Стоит предположить, что многие не видят здесь каких-либо проблем, связанных с экологией, и не совсем уверены в том, что такое криптоарт.

И это не проблема в далёкой перспективе – уже сейчас мы видим разрушительные издержки.

Художники могут распространять различные медиафайлы по сети, и они будут принадлежать множеству людей одновременно, при этом, не теряя в цене и не теряя оригинальности.

Если попытаться сделать прогноз – стоит предположить, что рынок NFT не заменит абсолютно ничего и не приведёт к закрытию расточительных ярмарок искусства.

Комиссия по ценным бумагам Малайзии (SC) выпустила уведомление, в котором обвинила крупнейшую в мире по объемам торгов криптобиржу Binance в незаконной работе на территории страны.

Регулятор предупредил торговую площадку, что у нее есть 14 дней (начиная с с 26 июля) на прекращение деятельности в Малайзии.

Также в SC потребовали прекратить Binance рассылать малазийским инвесторам рассылки и различные рекламные предложения от имени биржи.

В мае стало известно, что Министерство юстиции и Налоговое управление США начали расследование в отношении Binance, заподозрив ее в нарушениях антиотмывочного и налогового законодательства.

Для этого мы используем коэффициент ликвидного предложения, на котором можно наблюдать очередной восходящий импульс.

И в завершение темы, вот еще один всплеск количества монет в возрасте от 1 недели до 3 месяцев (то есть купленных в диапазоне $30–40 тыс.

Также можно констатировать, что это ралли увеличило процент с прибылью удерживаемого предложения с 65,82% 20 июля до 82,58% на момент написания статьи.

Адвокат Ripple Джеймс Филан заявил, что в ближайшее время не стоит ожидать урегулирования судебного разбирательства между компанией и Комиссией по ценным бумагам и биржам США (SEC).

Филан уверен, что Ripple не будет уступать регулятору.

28 июля токен XRP, выпущенный компанией Ripple, в течение полутора часов подорожал на 16% и достиг отметки в $0,73.

20 июля юристы, которые представляют интересы Ripple в суде, потребовали признать обвинения SEC против компании несостоятельными.

Финансовый регулятор обвинил Ripple в продаже незарегистрированных ценных бумаг на $1,3 млрд под видом токенов XRP в декабре 2020 года.

Биржа криптовалют Binance сегодня объявила о прекращении обслуживания торгов деривативными продуктами для жителей европейского региона.

– Европейский регион является очень важным для Binance.

Власти здесь действуют на упреждение для формирования более гармоничного регулирования криптовалют, а это положительный знак для отрасли.

Хотя мы не занимаемся активным продвижением фьючерсов и деривативов в отдельных странах, мы намерены начать дальше ограничивать доступ к этим продуктам в регионе».

Хотя пользователи криптобирж часто прибегают к помощи VPN для обхода различных ограничений, это требование дополнительно осложнит доступ европейских клиентов к фьючерсной платформе Binance.

Investors lend dai in exchange for an interest rate that depends on the borrower and the asset used as collateral.

We were joined by Lucas Vogelsang, CEO & Centrifuge Co-founder, and Cassidy Daly, Token Design & Research at Centrifuge.

They explained why they built the protocol and how it works, the first application built on top, Tinlake, its integration with other DeFi platforms such as Maker, and their vision for the future.

Dankrad Feist: Ethereum Foundation – An Eth2 Progress Update #2
Dankrad Feist: Ethereum Foundation – An Eth2 Progress Update #2 Dankrad Feist: Ethereum Foundation – An Eth2 Progress Update #2

Ethereum 2.0 is an upgrade to the Ethereum network that aims to improve the network’s security and scalability.

Recently, we chatted to Danny Ryan about the Merge and switch to Proof of Stake.

As a follow up to that episode, we were joined by Dankrad Feist, who heads the sharding and statelessness research at the Ethereum Foundation.

We dove deep into the technical infrastructure of how Eth2 addresses scaling through sharding, the pros and cons of data shards vs. execution shards, and how this links up with ZK-rollups.

We also talked about the Ethereum state and how the state can be altered for protocol improvements.

Roman Semenov: Tornado Cash – Keeping Your Ethereum Transactions Private Roman Semenov: Tornado Cash – Keeping Your Ethereum Transactions Private

By default, all transactions made on Ethereum are public.

Tornado Cash is a decentralized privacy preserving solution built on Ethereum which adds privacy through obfuscation.

Users can place Ether and some stable coins in prescribed increments [1 Eth, 10 Eth, 100 Eth…] into the Tornado Pool.

In return, they are issued a private note, with which they can withdraw funds at a later time to a different address.

We were joined by Roman Semenov, co-founder of Tornado Cash, to talk about how the protocol works, how it was set up, community governance, and where he sees Tornado Cash’s position in the quickly growing privacy ecosystem on Ethereum.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are tokens that we can use to represent ownership of unique items.

They let us tokenize things like art, collectibles, even real estate.

They can only have one official owner at a time and they’re secured by the Ethereum blockchain.

Showtime is a NFT social media network where creators & collectors showcase their digital art.

We were joined by Alex Masmej, Co-founder and CEO of Showtime, to chat about why he got into NFTs and in particular crypto art, how Showtime works and its purpose, and the future of the platform.

Danny Ryan: Ethereum Foundation – An Eth2 Progress Update Danny Ryan: Ethereum Foundation – An Eth2 Progress Update

Ethereum will switch from Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS) likely already later this year in a much anticipated upgrade to Ethereum 2.

The switch to PoS aims to make Ethereum both more secure and more sustainable by securing the network through Ether instead of mining.

A second Eth2 update will address scaling through sharding at a later time.

Danny Ryan, Researcher with Ethereum Foundation, has been a major driving force behind the Eth2 project.

He joined us for a progress update and we chatted about how the protocol will work in its steady state, what has launched so far, what happens in The Merge, and how PoS will affect centralization tendencies.

Michael Egorov: Curve Finance – The Stablecoin Exchange Protocol Michael Egorov: Curve Finance – The Stablecoin Exchange Protocol

Curve is an Automated Market Maker (AMM) that lets users and other decentralized protocols exchange stablecoins (DAI to USDC for example) with low fees and low slippage.

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.

We were joined by Curve Finance Founder, Michael Egorov, to chat about why he created the protocol and his long term vision for the project.

Tim Roughgarden: EIP-1559 – Tackling the Gas Fee Problem on Ethereum Tim Roughgarden: EIP-1559 – Tackling the Gas Fee Problem on Ethereum

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.

Tim Roughgarden is a Professor of Computer Science and member of the Data Science Institute at Columbia University.

After successfully completing a fully subscribed second tranche last week, BMN mining is now live.

Capital raised now totals €6.6M ($7.8M USD) with just over 33 BMN issued.

The BMN entitles investors to the Bitcoin mined by up to 2,000 TH/s of hashrate.

Bitcoin mined are secured in cold storage and delivered upon maturity of a three-year term.

Following several quarters of constrained hashrate growth on the back of the global semiconductor shortage, aggressive policy changes in China, and a record downward difficulty adjustment, Bitcoin mining is very profitable.

● Request for OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK design suggestions: Jeremy Rubin posted to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list a draft specification for an OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK opcode and asked for feedback from any developers who would prefer an alternative design.

Some alternatives were discussed, but the thread also branched off into a discussion about whether an OP_CAT opcode should be introduced at the same time.

OP_CAT and OP_CSFS would enable arbitrary transaction introspection—the ability to receive bitcoins to a script that could check almost any part of the transaction that later spends those bitcoins.

This can enable many advanced features (including versions of other proposed upgrades like SIGHASH_…

● Key derivation path for single-sig P2TR: Andrew Chow also posted a second proposed BIP to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list suggesting a BIP32 derivation path to use for wallets creating single-sig taproot addresses.

As expected, transactions using P2WPKH inputs and outputs are much smaller than those using P2PKH inputs and outputs—but, perhaps surprisingly, P2TR transactions are slightly larger than equivalent P2WPKH transactions.

Cheaper to spend: it costs about 15% less at the input level to spend a single-sig P2TR UTXO than it does to spend a P2WPKH UTXO.

Preparing for taproot
Preparing for taproot Preparing for taproot

Copies of all published parts of our weekly series on preparing for taproot activation at block 709,632.

Pay to TapRoot (P2TR) addresses use bech32m as specified in BIP350, which is slightly different than BIP173’s bech32 algorithm used for segwit v0 P2WPKH and P2WSH addresses.

Although receiving payments to taproot addresses won’t be safe until block 709,632, sending payments should not cause any problems for the sender.

Optech encourages developers of wallets and services to implement support for paying bech32m taproot addresses now rather than waiting until after taproot activates.

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…

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

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

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

This is issue #76 of the on-chain analytics newsletter that reaches nearly 12k crypto investors every week 📈About the editor: Spencer Noon is an investor at Variant, a first-check crypto VC fund.

This week our contributor analysts cover decentralized infrastructure projects: Helium, The Graph, Pocket Network, and Flashbots.

① Helium📈 Helium Network Size Up 15x YoYHelium is a crypto-economic protocol for deploying real-world wireless networks, starting with a LoRaWAN network for low-power IoT devices.

The percentage of Ethereum blocks that include Flashbots bundles, as well as the total number of bundles landing on-chain, have both been steadily increasing.

Total HNS Burned to date is 21.7M HNS, equal to more than 1% of total supply burned in just sixteen months since network launch.

With the combined network hashrate reaching 11 petahashes, we’ve seen roughly 50% growth since our last update.

This was partly because the network was at capacity and rising gas costs meant individuals engaged with DeFi applications in fewer frequency.

Users transitioning towards Polygon's network are trying to escape the cost of transactions on Ethereum's network while seeking similar user experiences.

① Uniswap📈 Uniswap v3 Flips v2 In Volume After Just 3 WeeksJust three weeks after its launch, Uniswap v3, the latest iteration of the Uniswap protocol, has officially flipped v2 on volume.

A testament to v3’s trade execution quality, the Uniswap protocols now receive 40% of weekly aggregator flows, up from 20% pre-launch.

Flipside CryptoThe Uniswap protocols continue to dominate Ethereum activity, with the v2 and v3 routers attracting ~25% of all network transactions.

It has been one year since Polkadot’s genesis block was produced on May 26th, 2020.

Since then, there have been 5.25m finalized blocks with 3.75m transactions and 344,198 active accounts.

On Kusama, Polkadot’s canary network, 7.66m blocks have been produced with over 1m transactions and 102,938 active accounts.

The network has been secured by a sufficient amount of validators and has transitioned to a Nominated Proof of Stake (NPoS) network from a Proof of Authority (PoA).

DAI supply has been growing consistently in 2021 (almost 400% YTD).

Supply brushed up against $5b this week, just before the ETH price crash that sent numerous DeFi protocols into liquidations.

Maker was one of these protocols, with over $46M liquidated on May 19th.

However, the DAI supply dipped by a full 400-450M; As such, a large portion of positions were rebalanced or repaid prior to liquidation.

This is in contrast to the sudden and severe “zero-bid” liquidations of Black Thursday 2020.

Despite a 50% reduction in fees in a March network upgrade, Avalanche is the 4th Highest Layer-1 in fees (note: fees in on Avalanche are burned, benefitting all network participants).

Fees for Avalanche users got significantly cheaper, but the burn rate increased as more users, applications, and assets joined the network.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

THORChain Analysis THORChain Analysis

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.

Swivel TradingLet’s walk through a trade on the Swivel exchange, which is an orderbook-based exchange built on top of the Swivel protocol.

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.

While the Swivel protocol is starting with fixed-floating swaps (the contract example used in the section titled Swivel Lending), …

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

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

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

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

Scaling Ethereum with zkSync
Scaling Ethereum with zkSync Scaling Ethereum with zkSync

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

zkSync best preserves the properties that have made Ethereum successful thus far: decentralization, security, composability, capital efficiency, and instant withdrawals.

As a result, we believe zkSync paves the smoothest path to scaling DeFi, NFTs, and all other innovations happening on Ethereum.

In 2020, nearly all the applications Vitalik dreamed up in the Ethereum whitepaper were live on Ethereum, as were dozens more that couldn’t have been imagined when Ethereum was born.

As Vitalik pointed out in his post, a rollup-centric Ethereum roadmap, the Ethe…

It works by separating the principal from the interest of a given stake into two separate, tradable tokens: Principal Tokens and Interest Tokens.

The market might be interested in buying your 10,000 USDC principal tokens for 9,400 USDC, thus securing a fixed yield of 6%.

Principal tokens trading at a market discount function like zero-coupon bonds and unlock a whole new asset class in DeFi.

Isomorphism in DAO Governance

[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 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.

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 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…

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?

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.

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

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

Out of Order Block Validation with Utreexo Accumulators Out of Order Block Validation with Utreexo Accumulators

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.

The need for Utreexo AccumulatorsThere are two reasons why Utreexo Accumulators are needed for this type of block validation.

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.

With more optimizations with Utreexo Accumulators left to be explored, I’m extremely excited for future research and the potential that Utreexo Accumulators can have on the Bitcoin ecosystem.

A separate post will shortly be published, that explains how we’re able to do Out of Order Block Validation with Utreexo Accumulators.

Future workSmaller Utreexo ProofsThe biggest downside of using Utreexo Accumulators is that the Utreexo Proofs are not small.

This both increases the size that an archival Utreexo node has to store and increases the bandwidth usage of Utreexo nodes.

C++ ImplementationThe ultimate goal of the Utreexo project is to have the functionality of the Utreexo Accumulators included in Bitcoin Core.

He’s also working on a fork of Bitcoin Core with libutreexo, exploring how the Utreexo Accumulators can fit into the codebase of Bitcoin Core.

The Blocksize War – Chapter 9 – FaketoshiMonday May 2, 2016 was one of those wild days in Bitcoin land.

After spending time with him I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt: Craig Wright is Satoshi.

Some people, on the other hand, were more cautious, warning that the large blockers should not be underestimated.

This was to the delight of some in the large block community, while other large blockers saw the damage to their cause that he was doing.

We could go into more detail about Craig Wright here: his history of court cases, false claims and backdating messages in verifiable ways.

#29: Interview with a Searcher – with MEV Senpai and Hasu #29: Interview with a Searcher – with MEV Senpai and Hasu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please enjoy my conversation on CowSwap with Felix Leupold.

Su is sitting out today, and I instead welcome Charlie Noyes and Georgios Konstantopoulos of Paradigm, one of the largest investment funds in crypto.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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…
