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.

Announced Thursday, Radicle, a fully decentralized code repository, has raised $12 million in funding, integrated its peer-to-peer network with Ethereum and launched the RAD governance token.

Notably, it’s the first crypto investment from NFX since Libra co-creator Morgan Beller left Facebook and joined the VC firm in September 2020.

“We think about Radicle as infrastructure for decentralized communities,” Diakomichalis said in an interview.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This all happened during South Sea mania.

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

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

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

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

“With this current structure, I do not feel comfortable in running a lot of long exposure.”The funding rate is calculated every eight hours and represents the cost of holding long positions.

When perpetuals trade at a premium to spot price, the funding rate is positive (longs pay shorts).

Hence, a very high funding rate is considered a sign of leverage being excessively skewed to the bullish side (overbought conditions) and often injects volatility into the market.

Ether: Average funding rate Source: SkewIn such situations, holding longs at high costs is attractive only if the bullish momentum remains strong.

If this feels like deja vu, it's because MoneyGram already dropped Ripple last month as a result of the SEC's ongoing case against the company.

At the time, Ripple told Decrypt that its multi-year partnership deal with MoneyGram was "still in place," and that it was "look[ing] forward to finding a path forward."

Now, says Ripple in a carefully diplomatic press release, the companies have come to a mutual understanding, and agreed to officially part ways.

Bitcoin Rebounds, Dow Hits Record High Amid Stimulus Expectations Bitcoin Rebounds, Dow Hits Record High Amid Stimulus Expectations

Bitcoin is once again on the rebound, just as the Dow Jones hits a fresh all-time high.

Other investments, however, such as gold and tech stocks like the FAANG group—Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google—aren’t faring so well.

Most traditional markets reacted positively to expectations that a new stimulus package could provide support to prevent a market crash.

The S&P 500 registered a 0.88% rise to 3,873 points, whereas the Dow recorded a 1.93% spike to 32,104 points—a new all-time high.

The Nasdaq 100 is down almost 1%, almost exactly the opposite of the Dow, S&P, and Bitcoin moves today.

A Third Bitcoin ETF in Canada Is Set to Launch A Third Bitcoin ETF in Canada Is Set to Launch

A third Bitcoin ETF has been approved by Canadian regulators and will launch tomorrow.

The CI Galaxy Bitcoin ETF will launch tomorrow, March 9, under the symbol BTCX on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

The new ETF will join the Purpose Bitcoin ETF (BTCC) and Evolve Bitcoin ETF (EBIT), both of which launched just last month.

The Purpose Bitcoin ETF attracted more than $470 million one week after launching in February, and the Evolve Bitcoin ETF currently has more than $54 million in assets under management, a measure of total current investments.

Bitcoin ETF applications in the US have been repeatedly rejected by the SEC on the grounds that Bitcoin markets can be easily manipulated.

What Biden's $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Means for Bitcoin
What Biden's $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Means for Bitcoin What Biden's $2 Trillion Stimulus Package Means for Bitcoin

In brief President Biden passed a nearly $2 trillion stimulus package through the Senate last weekend.

Over the weekend, the US Senate passed President Joe Biden’s ambitious American Rescue Plan—a nearly $2 trillion stimulus package.

If you ask Ingo Fiedler, co-founder of the Blockchain Research Lab, the short term increase in Bitcoin may have been a small speculative reaction to the stimulus package.

Sui Chung, CEO of crypto price index CF Benchmarks, predicts more institutional investors will pivot to Bitcoin as a result of the Biden stimulus package.

Despite fears of currency inflation, the theory behind this stimulus package is that it will kickstart the American economy.

StakeWise, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) designed to make Ethereum 2.0 staking easier for users, has completed a $2 million raise ahead of a public launch.

StakeWise aims to make staking easier for Ethereum users ahead of its Eth2 proof-of-stake upgrade, one that consists of users staking their ETH to run nodes instead of “miners” that utilize massive computing power to process blocks and validate transactions.

The protocol tokenizes users' deposits and staking rewards as sETH2 (a deposit token) and rETH2 (a reward token).

These ETH2 staking pool tokens were not created equal.

The first 25,000 ETH deposited into the StakeWise Pool will be eligible for a distribution of 2% of…

In brief PayPal's latest acquisition is Curv, which helps banks and others secure their crypto holdings.

He added that Malinger will stay on at PayPal, but that PayPal is not disclosing specific titles or roles.

Fernandez da Ponte emphasized that PayPal is not acquiring Curv with the goal of running a custody service, which involves charging third parties to safeguard their assets.

According to Fernandez da Ponte, though, the biggest opportunity for crypto to transform finance lies beyond peer-to-peer consumer transactions.

Perhaps most intriguing of all, Fernandez da Ponte said that PayPal's crypto ambitions are closely tied to the speed at which central banks embrace digital currencies.

Venture capital firms, including Dragonfly Capital and Coinbase Ventures, have today finalized a funding round into DeFi risk management platform Saffron, according to a press release.

DeFi refers to decentralized platforms built on blockchains like Ethereum, that provide financial tools—such as borrowing or lending cryptocurrency.

Saffron takes those lending platforms and allows investors to manage risk when using them.

For example, someone could lend Tether (USDT) on crypto lending platform Compound and then choose either high or low risk through Saffron.

If they choose high risk, they’ll be targeting a high rate of return (with greater risk) and vice versa.

Прорыв неизбежен: почему быки и медведи сражаются за уровень $52 тыс. Прорыв неизбежен: почему быки и медведи сражаются за уровень $52 тыс.

Биткойну необходимо преодолеть большое препятствие на уровне $52 тыс., чтобы иметь шанс на новые максимумы в краткосрочной перспективе.

Этот уровень имеет определяющее значение для дальнейшего роста, и взятие его открывает путь к $55–56 тыс.

Очередная неудачная попытка прорыва этого сопротивления может стать серьезным ударом для быков и поставить на повестку ретест важной поддержки у $46 тыс.

Если такой флип сопротивления на поддержку произойдет, скорее всего, можно ожидать быстрого подъема до уровня $56 тыс.

Таким образом, трейдерам и инвесторам не стоит сбрасывать со счетов и вероятность потенциального снижения до $46 тыс.

Столетие фискальной и монетарной политики: инфляция и дефляция Столетие фискальной и монетарной политики: инфляция и дефляция

По мере продвижения экспансии всё более и более высокий уровень долга и, как следствие, чрезмерные инвестиции бизнеса и чрезмерное потребление домохозяйств делают их всё более зависимыми от левериджа (заёмных средств) и хрупкими.

У первого было два пика – в 1930-х и 1940-х, и у второго пока тоже два – в 2008-14 гг.

И напротив, дефляцию вызывают технический прогресс и совершенствование производительности, чрезмерный долг, ограничивающий расходы, и обильное предложение товаров и услуг в сравнении со спросом и количеством денег в системе.

Наблюдается долгосрочная структурная тенденция к снижению инфляции или и вовсе дефляции, и в нормальных условиях это хорошо.

Коррекция цены BTC затрагивает не только отдельных ходлеров — она бьет и по интересам крупных игроков, не вкладывавшихся в биткойн напрямую.

По итогам 5 марта акции компании MicroStrategy, владеющей более чем 91 тысячей BTC, всего за три недели упали более чем вдвое.

Такая волатильность — следствие взлетов и коррекций биткойна в последнем бычьем ралли, характеризовавшемся сильными колебаниями в обоих направлениях.

Однако с момента начала закупки BTC на баланс компании в августе прошлого года влияние биткойна на стоимость ее акций остается поворотным фактором.

Ripple подала официальный ответ на дополненный иск Комиссии по ценным бумагам и биржам США (SEC) в ходе продолжающегося разбирательства.

В 100-страничном документе Ripple также заявляет, что SEC игнорирует или подменяет факты, например утверждая, что проводимые ею продажи XRP составляли «важную часть» рынка XRP.

Компания пишет, что на такие транзакции приходилось менее 0,4% в общем объеме сделок почти на всех этапах существования этого рынка.

В завершении Ripple полностью отрицает свою вину:«Ripple не продавала и не распространяла XRP как инвестиционный контракт».

Такая смена поддержки на сопротивление происходила на уровнях $55 тыс.

С этой точки зрения критически важной зоной поддержки для биткойна является область $48,3–48,8 тыс.

Также и в бычьих циклах биткойна 30–40% коррекции случаются часто, и это следует иметь в виду и при текущем снижении.

Tieshun Roquerre: Namebase – Decentralizing DNS and Certificate Authorities
Tieshun Roquerre: Namebase – Decentralizing DNS and Certificate Authorities Tieshun Roquerre: Namebase – Decentralizing DNS and Certificate Authorities

Namebase is a top-level domain (TLD) name registrar that operates on the Handshake blockchain.

It creates an ecosystem of TLDs that may be bought and sold using an on-chain auction mechanism.

It takes a different approach to other decentralized domain name systems as Namebase is compatible with the ICANN namespace, the organization governs domain names globally.

Users may register TLDs that don’t yet exist in the ICANN namespace, like .epicenter or .ethereum, for example, creating the opportunity for new niche domain registrars to emerge.

Tieshun Roquerre, CEO of Namebase, joins us to discuss his vision for Namebase and his ambitious goal to decentralize ICANN.

Trent Elmore: YAM Finance 🍠 – The Rise, Fall, and Rise Again of the OG Foodcoin Trent Elmore: YAM Finance 🍠 – The Rise, Fall, and Rise Again of the OG Foodcoin

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. It started out as an experiment to bring together some of the more innovative ideas in the space. It sparked a movement which brought massive attention to yield farming, and started the food token craze. After a bug was discovered in the v1 contract, many thought the project was dead. But no, the team and community have been working diligently to bring the protocol back to life and it's now a community-run DAO innovating at the intersection of decentralized governance and programmable finance.Trent Elmore is one of the creators of YAM.

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.

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.

So it's a failure on two sides at the same time..." - Jonathan MohanCreditsThis episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin features Stephanie Murphy, Andreas M. Antonopoulos, Adam B. Levine and Jonathan Mohan.

“…the Lightning network currently sends payments from A to B to C and then all those intermediate nodes can connect a small fee if the payment is delivered at the end.

All we’re doing is saying ‘Not only [can you send] a payment, but [you can send] a small message.

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.

Мы есть в YouTube, мы есть в Twitter, подкаст есть на всех доступных подкаст-платформах, мы везде называемся «Базовый Блок» или Basicblockradio.

Since your data is encrypted with your recovery phrase, the Blockstream Green servers cannot know what’s inside it.

If you’ve activated your two-factor reset, your wallet will not start using the encrypted blob until after the waiting period expires.

Blockstream Green: Bitcoin Wallets Now Using CheckSequenceVerify Timelocks
Blockstream Green: Bitcoin Wallets Now Using CheckSequenceVerify Timelocks Blockstream Green: Bitcoin Wallets Now Using CheckSequenceVerify Timelocks

The main difference CSV introduces is in the garecovery process of your Bitcoin accounts, which is required if you cannot access Blockstream’s servers or lose your two-factor authentication (2FA) method.

Now you no longer need to provide an email address to receive timelock backup emails each time you send or receive a transaction.

Bitcoin 2-of-3 accounts do not use timelocks (the third key is used for garecovery instead) and are also not affected.

Slightly More FeesThe CheckSequenceVerify timelocks take up a little more space on the blockchain than nLockTime timelocks.

As a result, transactions from Blockstream Green wallets will be 2% more expensive on average.

LNsync: Getting Your Lightning Node Quickly Up to Speed
LNsync: Getting Your Lightning Node Quickly Up to Speed LNsync: Getting Your Lightning Node Quickly Up to Speed

By providing Lightning apps with an efficient method to keep in sync with the rest of the network, LNsync should represent a major step in improving the usability of Lightning for all Bitcoin users.

This is done in a procedure called the server-assisted gossip sync, explained in more detail in our Engineering Blog.

A Complement to the Gossip ProtocolLNsync does not replace the existing gossip protocol.

And once your node has completed it’s sync through LNsync, the gossip protocol takes over again, keeping your node up to date while it is online.

Add LNsync to Your Lightning AppsWe hope that LNsync will help make Lightning payments more reliable, especially for mobile wallets.

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.

Gitcoin Grants Round 7 RetrospectiveRound 7 of Gitcoin Grants has successfully completed!

This is a significant milestone for the ecosystem because it shows that Gitcoin Grants is expanding beyond reliance on a very small number of funders, and is moving toward something more sustainable.

The concept of categories as it is currently implemented in Gitcoin Grants is a somewhat strange one.

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.

A Philosophy of Blockchain Validation
A Philosophy of Blockchain Validation A Philosophy of Blockchain Validation

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....).

For a blockchain community that values immutability, implementing revert limits of this kind are arguably the…

Round 6 of Gitcoin Grants has just finished, with $227,847 in contributions from 1,526 contributors and $175,000 in matched funds distributed across 695 projects.

Why should the quadratic funding mechanism significantly increase its complexity just to achieve a gain in stability that projects could simply provide for themselves?

The Ethereum community has long been struggling to find effective ways to determine what "the community" supports, especially in cases of controversy.

Since round 5, Gitcoin Grants has had three categories per round: tech, community (called "media" before), and some "guest" category that appears only during that specific round.

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…

However, there was nearly universal agreement on other activation parameters, most notably reducing the amount of hash rate that needs to signal for the fork to activate from 95% to 90%.

Discussion continued about the LOT parameter on the mailing list, mainly about the effect of encouraging users to choose the option themselves, either via a comma…

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…

The contract can be made indistinguishable from many other Bitcoin transactions or it can be executed within an LN channel.

In March, Bitcoin Core carefully changed its consensus code—without introducing a fork—to remove an inefficiency in the parsing of OP_IF and related flow control opcodes.

Within a month of BIP339 being added to the BIPs repository, wtxid announcements were merged into Bitcoin Core.

Also in October, Bitcoin Core became the first project to merge an implementation of the version 2 addr message.

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.

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

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

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

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

Medalla Goes Live — Issue No. 106 Medalla Goes Live — Issue No. 106

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.

Augur v2 Launches — Issue No. 105 Augur v2 Launches — Issue No. 105

The team behind Augur has launched the next version of their decentralized betting market protocol.

Let's review the basic premise of Augur before discussing these improvements, and what we might expect to see from Augur v2 in the coming months.

It quickly rocketed up to over $1 million at stake in its betting markets, but later slowed.

It offers a service to users— namely, betting markets— that one would assume there would be interest in.

Is it possible not that many people care to participate in betting markets?

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

Twitter Attacked — Issue No. 103 Twitter Attacked — Issue No. 103

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

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

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

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

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

Left out of that discussion, though, was the grandaddy of layer 2 scaling techniques: state channels.

In this edition of the newsletter, we'll learn the basics of how state channels work, and why they're complex to implement.

We'll close by looking at why state channels haven't seen much adoption to date, but why that could be poised to change.

How State Channels WorkThe core premise of state channels is surprisingly simple to understand.

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

( 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.

The Ghost Of Satoshi — Issue No. 96 The Ghost Of Satoshi — Issue No. 96

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.

Handshake qualitatively and quantitatively has made many strides since our last update.

The number of opened TLDs (or NFTLDs) on the network have increased immensely, now with over 638,000+ names open for auction to date; the $HNS price has seen a ~150% rise, driven to over $0.30+ in the last month as it enters price discovery.

To put this into real-world perspective, there are only about 1,514 in the ICANN DNS namespace active today.

Handshake is economically, and now extendably, a more robust namespace, with embedded incentives over the legacy system.

Similar to On-Chain Balance, we can track the volume-weighted average purchase price of Decred tickets over a period of time.

During bullish markets, where demand for tickets is strong, these moving averages will 'keep pace' with price as larger volumes of DCR are pushed into staking.

This manifests as values of TVWAP ratio close to 1.0 which generally support bullish sentiment.

The 14-day and 28-day TVWAPs are following price extremely closely whilst the 142-day TVWAP is reversing from the lowest value since June 2017.

This indicates a strong increase in recent demand for staking DCR, turning around the slower long period TVWAP Ratio.

KeeperDAO is a DAO that aims to flip the keeper and arbitrageur landscape in DeFi from a competitive to a co-operative dynamic.

The system centers around a (i) pool where LPs deposit assets for keepers to take flashloans out from, and (ii) a Treasury where keepers deposit part of their profits for the DAO to utilize, via ROOK enabled governance.

So far, approximately 19 keepers on average have been active per month with 2,598 unique addresses contributing to the pool.

Flash loan volumes — a proxy for keeper activity — have been growing at a rapid pace year-to-date (~85% week-on-week).

The total lifetime volume of flash loans from the KeeperDAO pool stands at a whopping 900M+ USD (in v2).

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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

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

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

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

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

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

Third, it enables decentralized funding of open source projects.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Great Automaton
The Great Automaton The Great Automaton

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Balancer Thesis
Balancer Thesis Balancer Thesis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This model also applies to Decentr…

Liquidity Provider Returns in Geometric Mean Markets
Liquidity Provider Returns in Geometric Mean Markets 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

However, when a Utreexo node connects to a bridge node, it will serve Utreexo proofs on top of the normal block it would serve a non-Utreexo node.

However, to have the UTXO set at block 500, we need the UTXO set at block 499.

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

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

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

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

#19: The Future of Financial Populism – with Su Zhu and Hasu
#19: The Future of Financial Populism – with Su Zhu and Hasu #19: The Future of Financial Populism – with Su Zhu and Hasu

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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…
