Iran Is Ripe for Bitcoin Adoption, Even as Government Clamps Down on Mining
Iran Is Ripe for Bitcoin Adoption, Even as Government Clamps Down on Mining Iran Is Ripe for Bitcoin Adoption, Even as Government Clamps Down on Mining

It has recognized bitcoin mining as a legitimate industry that could bring wealth into the country, though it risks suffocating it with too much regulation.

According to data provided by Iranian bitcoin exchange EXIR, the platform saw a 200% increase in users over the past three years.

Bitcoin mining was legalized last year and Iran still appears to be a mining hub with the government approving over 1,000 mining permits since then.

In 2016, Omid Alavi watched his brothers mining bitcoin from their home in Iran, and saw a business opportunity.

In April 2020, the government licensed a Turkey-based company called iMiner to launch a bitcoin mining operation in Iran.

Ocean Protocol and Balancer Want to Do for Data What Uniswap Did for Coins
Ocean Protocol and Balancer Want to Do for Data What Uniswap Did for Coins Ocean Protocol and Balancer Want to Do for Data What Uniswap Did for Coins

Announced Thursday, blockchain-based data monetization startup Ocean Protocol is teaming up with Balancer Labs to create the first automated market maker (AMM) for data.

Creating efficient data marketplaces is really the lynchpin of this, according to Ocean founder Trent McConaghy.

“So our goal is to unlock this data economy with data marketplaces, connecting the buyers and sellers of data.

Now, with the third version of Ocean, McConaghy has concluded AMMs like Uniswap do the job best.

That means someone with lots of data tokens can offer these without having to tie-up a great deal of Ocean tokens or other cryptos.

MakerDAO Users Hosed by March Flash Crash Won’t Get MKR Payouts, Say MKR Whales
MakerDAO Users Hosed by March Flash Crash Won’t Get MKR Payouts, Say MKR Whales MakerDAO Users Hosed by March Flash Crash Won’t Get MKR Payouts, Say MKR Whales

MakerDAO will not compensate victims of March 12’s “Black Thursday” flash crash that left some of the decentralized finance (DeFi) platform’s investors out $8.33 million, according to a vote that closed Tuesday.

The Maker community had initially voted in early April to refund sunken investors.

The vote itself was dominated by large MKR holders.

Investors have since lobbied the community for partial compensation denominated in the platform’s MKR governance token.

Yet, participating MKR holders were incentivized to vote against the compensation as any additional printing of MKR tokens would dilute the value of their holdings.

Based in the Cayman Islands, the fund will primarily buy tokens listed on centralized cryptocurrency exchanges rather than from decentralized – and sometimes community-owned – automated exchanges.

Panxora CEO Gavin Smith said few if any decentralized exchanges can guarantee sufficient compliance with anti-money-laundering rules, and also because a token listing from an exchange theoretically implies some level of vetting.

Including the other six major issuers, there’s as many as 107,000 BTC (worth ~$1.1 billion) tokenized for use on Ethereum.

Parity Technologies has released the second version of its blockchain building kit, Substrate 2.0, according to a blog post shared Wednesday with CoinDesk.

Parity Technologies is the developer of the Polkadot blockchain with ambitions for developing a Web 3.0, undergirded by a meshing of various blockchains.

For example, Parity Tech’s “canary” network Kusama and security token platform Polymesh are two Substrate blockchains.

Both chains should be able to communicate with each other, if everything pans out as co-founder of Parity Tech Gavin Wood foresees.

Your name and face – your real face, not that of your office avatar – look back at you.

In brief To help prop up the struggling US economy, the Trump administration and Federal Reserve have pumped trillions into the market.

However, the US dollar (USD) continues to weaken against most other currencies, while Bitcoin has witnessed a dramatic recovery from its March 2020 crash.

Since March, US President Donald Trump’s administration, along with the Federal Reserve, has been working to prop up an economy devastated by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

As a result, the Trump administration and the Federal Reserve have had to go to extraordinary lengths to keep people working and boost spending.

Overall, the Federal Reserve has injected $2.3 trillion into the market since Ma…

More Than 430 Altcoins Are Now Derived From Bitcoin
More Than 430 Altcoins Are Now Derived From Bitcoin More Than 430 Altcoins Are Now Derived From Bitcoin

A Bitcoin fork, in crypto lingo, can be described as a radical update to the network protocol.

Known as the silver to Bitcoin's gold, Litecoin appeared as a hybrid of Bitcoin and another now-defunct Bitcoin fork known as Fairbix (which itself came from a previous Bitcoin fork known as Tenebrix).

Though it looked to improve on Bitcoin, Litecoin has always managed to strike a delicate balance, becoming a functional sidekick to Bitcoin rather than a fully-fledged usurper.

Rather than a separate group of developers leveraging the Bitcoin codebase to create something new, Bitcoin Cash was the result of an internal battle.

Nevertheless, even with hundreds of offspring looking to overthrow Bitcoin…

In brief A new law mandates that all aspects of Bitcoin mining in Venezuelan are to be controlled by the state.

Cryptocurrency mining is legal in Venezuela provided a license is obtained, but mistrust of the authorities is widespread.

A decree, published on Monday by the Venezuelan authorities, mandates that all Bitcoin miners join a national pool, and imposes regulations on every aspect of their activity, according to local news outlet Cryptonoticas.

While the new decree proclaims the legalization of crypto mining, it joins a raft of recent legislation that increasingly seeks to centralize and control the mining of the world’s most popular cryptocurrency on national territory.

Здесь выглядит вполне вероятным продолжение заданного импульса до 95 пунктов, если только он не встретит весомого сопротивления в диапазоне 93.50–94 пунктов.

Биткойн-майнеры в последние два месяца продали значительное количество BTC, но аналитики ончейн-данных считают, что это не станет препятствием для следующего бычьего ралли.

Ончейн-аналитик Вилли Ву, объясняет, что майнеры представляют собой один из двух внешних источников давления продаж для биткойна.

В этот период несколько китов продавали биткойны прямо в области $12.000 и аналогичным образом вели себя и майнеры.

По данным ByteTree, чистые наличные запасы BTC биткойн-майнеров в последние 12 недель сокращались со скоростью 125 BTC в неделю.

Данные показывают, что майнеры продавали BTC примерно на 1,362 млн $/неделю сверх тех BTC, что они добыли и продали за этот период.

Сложность майнинга биткойна обновила исторический максимум
Сложность майнинга биткойна обновила исторический максимум Сложность майнинга биткойна обновила исторический максимум

Сложность майнинга биткойна в результате очередного перерасчета обновила исторический максимум на уровне в 19,31 T. Предыдущий рекорд был установлен 24 августа 2020 года на отметке в 17,56 T, по данным пула BTC.com.

Такой рост связан с увеличением объемов вычислительных мощностей в сети первой криптовалюты.

По информации блокчейн-обозревателя Blockchain.com, средний хешрейт главной цифровой монеты за последнюю неделю продолжает расти.

Из-за этого механизм подстройки увеличил сложность сети, чтобы компенсировать отклонения от нормы.

За прошедшие сутки его курс не изменился, за неделю он увеличился на 4%.

Федеральный судья Максин М. Чесни отклонил иск Payward Inc., владельца биткоин-биржи Kraken, к ее бывшему сотруднику Натану Питеру Руньону. Об этом сообщает Cointelegraph. Руньон раскрыл физический адрес платформы, но суд не увидел в этом признаков нарушения коммерческой тайны. Согласно решению от 22 сентября, истец не обвинял ответчика в использовании адреса для получения экономической выгоды. Компания также не добавила в исковое заявление факты, подтверждающие, что доступ Руньона к одному из защищенных компьютеров Kraken «причинил ущерб в любой сумме для Payward». Питер Руньон обнародовал адрес биржи в ноябре 2019 года в иске, в котором обвинил руководство площадки в незаконных и неэтичны…

В четверг, 24 сентября, пользователи из РФ стали жаловаться на проблемы с доступом к p2p-платформе по покупке и продаже биткоина LocalBitcoins. По данным Роскомнадзора, LocalBitcoins был внесен в единый реестр запрещенных ресурсов на основании решения Приморского районного суда Санкт-Петербурга от 5 июля 2016 года. Причиной блокировки сайта послужил иск прокурора о недопустимости распространения информации о котировках криптовалют и операциях с ними. Сторона обвинения по традиции ссылалась на ФЗ "О Центральном банке Российской Федерации" и заявление Росфинмониторинга и ЦБ о порядке использовании криптовалют.

Главный стратег по сырьевым товарам Bloomberg Intelligence Майк Макглоун полагает, что первая криптовалюта должна оцениваться в $15 000. К таким выводам он пришел, опираясь на динамику роста числа активных адресов c 2017 года, пишет Cointelegraph.

«Хешрейт биткоина продолжает расти и на днях обновил исторический максимум. Увеличивается также число активных адресов. Ключевая метрика, иллюстрирующая принятие, их 30-дневное среднее значение, соответствует цене ближе к $15 000, если измерять ее на основе автомасштабирования с 2017 года», — пояснил аналитик.

Министерство финансов РФ направило ведомствам обновленный пакет документов о регулировании криптовалют. В них речь идет о новых штрафах для владельцев криптоактивов, пишет "Ъ" со ссылкой на документы.

Согласно ним, физические и юрлица, получившие за календарный год криптовалюту или цифровые активы на сумму более чем 100 тысяч рублей, должны отчитаться об этом налоговой.

За отказ сделать это владельцу цифровых валют грозит штраф в размере 30% от активов, однако не меньше 50 тысяч рублей.

Недекларирование суммы в более 1 млн рублей в год, прошедшей через криптокошелек, влечет уголовную ответственность до трех лет лишения свободы или принудительные работы.

В начале 2000-х годов мир пережил бум доткомов. В то время компании получали миллионы инвестиций: стоило лишь запустить сайт. Стоимость акций доткомов росла, но их услуги не интересовали потребителей. В результате пузырь лопнул, а инвесторы потеряли $5 трлн. В 2020 году на крипторынке появились сотни DeFi-проектов, и это напоминает ситуацию с доткомами в нулевых. Сектор децентрализованных финансов стремительно растет, но проекты теряют стоимость из-за спекуляций и нехватки реальных пользователей.

О дальнейших возможных сценариях движения цены биткоина и нескольких популярных альткоинов рассказывает ведущий аналитик RoboForex Дмитрий Гурковский. Криптовалюты продолжают корректироваться вблизи важных уровеней поддержки. Пробой этих областей вниз может указывать на еще более глубокую коррекцию всего рынка. Однако если покупатели смогут показать некоторую силу и ценам удастся оттолкнуться вверх, шансы на продолжение роста станут гораздо выше. Более того, на более мелких таймфреймах некоторых активов формируются разворотные модели в пользу движения вверх, поэтому здесь также будет очень важным увидеть пробой верхних границ этих паттернов.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As such, it will become widely recognized as the flag of technology over the course of the 2020s.

To understand this claim, we need to define what "technology" is, what a "flag" would mean in this context, and why Bitcoin would be chosen as that flag.

There are, unfortunately, many known threats to the privacy of Bitcoin users and as a result, Bitcoin in its current state is far from perfectly fungible.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bitcoin's P2P Network
Bitcoin's P2P Network Bitcoin's P2P Network

It's now time to apply those abstractions to Bitcoin's own P2P network.

At a high level, almost all cryptocurrencies inherit the same P2P network design from Bitcoin.

This bootstrap node is your entrance point into the P2P network, from which point you can then organically find new peers.

You also should understand why Satoshi chose to design the Bitcoin network with a P2P architecture.

Gnutella: an Intro to Gossip
Gnutella: an Intro to Gossip Gnutella: an Intro to Gossip

Gnutella is a great entrance point into gossip because it's one of the simplest gossip protocols that was used in production.

A minimum spanning tree is the smallest possible such tree—in other words, a spanning tree that is built with the minimum number of edges (or minimal total edge weights).

A minimum spanning tree gives us maximally efficient routing, especially if the spanning tree is constructed in consideration of the underlying network topology.

Enter the gossip protocolIf we want the scalability of a spanning tree without the brittleness, we want to use gossip.

So with a little bit of gossip theory under our belts, let's look at how Gnutella works beneath the hood.

P2P Networking
P2P Networking P2P Networking

A P2P network is a distributed model of networking, in which there is no central server.

A brief review of the history of P2P protocols will make clear why Satoshi valued these features in Bitcoin.

P2P protocols were the first distributed systems that reached massive scale in the number of computers (besides the Internet itself, that is).

This means any P2P network must be carefully engineered so that even in the presence of malicious users, the network cannot be subverted.

Despite these tradeoffs, it was clear to Satoshi Nakamoto that the properties of P2P networks were necessary for a decentralized currency.

Public-Key Cryptography
Public-Key Cryptography Public-Key Cryptography

EncryptionTo understand public-key cryptography, we have to start with what we mean by encryption.

Public keys as identityIn public-key cryptography, a crude but useful analogy is to think of your public key like a username.

This is precisely what makes public-key cryptography feasible as a form of identity.

If those assumptions turn out to be false, it would imply that all of our public-key cryptography were fundamentally broken.

Most of your interactions with public-key cryptography you'll be outsourcing to libraries, so there's no need to get deep in the weeds quite yet.

Hashcash
Hashcash Hashcash

Okay, so how difficult is it to generate a hashcash PoW with a difficulty level of \(N\) bits?

The first is limiting each hashcash token to a specific email address, so they're not reusable for different recipients.

You can see some Hashcash tokens Adam Back generated on the Hashcash website, such as this one:from hashlib import sha1 sha1(b"0:030626:adam@cypherspace.org:6470e06d773e05a8").hexdigest() # '00000000c70db7389f241b8f441fcf068aead3f0'This hashcash digest has 8 leading zeros in hex, equivalent to 32 leading zeros in binary.

To mitigate this, Hashcash requires the email server to remember any Hashcash tokens received in the last day.

The assignment has two parts: first, you'll be wr…

Camila Russo: The Defiant – Laying Bare the Story of Ethereum Camila Russo: The Defiant – Laying Bare the Story of Ethereum

Camila Russo is a financial journalist, starting her career writing for Chile's largest national newspaper. She then spent 8 years at Bloomberg covering the Argentine market from Buenos Aires, the European stocks from Madrid, and analysed macro emerging markets moves for the Markets Live blog in New York. She is the founder of the Defiant and recently wrote and released a book on the foundations of Ethereum, “The Infinite Machine”. This tells the story of how 19-year-old coding genius Vitalik Buterin led a “ragtag group of feuding hackers with no business plan and no live product” to pioneer a whole new way of raising money, on a platform that’s grown to a value of $27 billion.

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

NuCypher is a decentralized threshold cryptography network offering interfaces and runtimes for secrets management and dynamic access control.

They are currently in testnet but once launched you will be able to use NuCypher to carry out proxy re-encryption.

Proxy re-encryption is a cryptographic method that allows you to delegate re-encryption of data to a third party and in this case validators in the NuCypher network.

With this method you issue a re-encryption key that is assigned to a specific public key and a third party has the ability to re-encrypt data for that third party to decrypt.

In this case the NuCypher network acts as the third party service.

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

Just like all software, smart contracts on the blockchain are subject to serious security vulnerabilities and coding errors. The fact however that smart contracts are often directly in charge of assets and cannot be changed once they are on the blockchain, makes secure development and running essential. Some smart contract platforms have their own languages, for example Solidity in Ethereum. Bugs and vulnerabilities in the source code, and errors in the virtual machines used by the network, are the main reasons behind security issues in smart contracts.Projects using blockchain applications should expect constant changes in the security landscape.

In order for an economy to work, money supply has to continue to increase.

You know, gold and silver have the highest stock-to-flows and they were the only moneys chosen on the market.

If bitcoin was the only money and the money supply was fixed then it would only appreciate compared to goods based on how much those goods supply increases, so when we have economic growth bitcoin appreciates slightly.

Well, not like we have a choice but you know, bitcoin just proceeds and fewer coins are out there.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

About this EpisodeIn this week's episode, Anna explores the state of trusted setups with 4 of the people who have recently coordinated and run trusted setups for different SNARK systems.

This episode covers the new generation of trusted setups and how the teams working on these are learning from each other and at times, even sharing parts of the trusted set up itself.

As a primer, Trusted Setups are those events or ceremonies that one needs to perform to generate the parameters that can kick off SNARK based systems.

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.

Всем, кому интересно, можете просто пройти ниже по ссылке, посмотреть про Wasabi или про Samourai, что это такое и как это работает.

Всё, это не ваши деньги, и там они, соответственно, уже могут и помешать, и сделать всё что угодно.

Мы, наверное, сейчас как следующей темой поговорим, что мы будем делать дальше, что у нас будет privacy pool.

С точки зрения Tornado на сегодняшний день мы не имеем какой-либо коммерческой заинтересованности, с точки зрения мы не ранаем релееров и мы не имеем никакого профита вообще с Tornado Cash.

Например, торговлю фьючерсами, то есть то, что сейчас называют DeFi, но ещё оно было централизованное.

То есть они тогда занимались больше маркетингом, то есть они вообще боялись что-то трогать.

То есть, есть люди, которые более успешно получают финансирование.

Поэтому у нас есть два уровня, то есть еще есть провайдеры, которые реально известны, которые отвечают за свои действия, то есть чистые Proof of Stake.

То есть, в принципе, надо обязательно контролить секрет обязательно во всех блокчейнах – и в Bitcoin, и в Ethereum, если мы рассматриваем своп биткоин-эфир.

То, что в первую очередь торгуется, то, что интересно пользователям другим, то есть такой у нас приоритет.

То есть там целый скрипт надо предъявить, то есть когда ты открываешь подпись.

Это немножко не то, это не свопы.

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.

by Alex BosworthWe’re excited to announce the release of the Lightning Loop Beta.

Loop Beta is the start of a roadmap to evolve the technology of Lightning bridging to take a permanent place in the Lightning ecosystem.

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

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

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

“Single-shot” MPP payments are essentially an updated, safer form of “normal,” unsplit Lightning payments.

In the rest of this post, we'll use "collusion" to refer to "undesired coordination" generally.

From the point of view of someone determining the rules for the voting mechanism, they don't know ahead of time whether the Orange Party is good or bad.

If a group makes a bad decision, those who approved the decision must suffer more than those who attempted to dissent.

Different coordination structures, different outcomesSometimes, more coordination is good: it's better when people can work together to collectively solve their problems.

Of course, it is very difficult to prevent communication outright, and it is very difficult to make coordination perfect.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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…

To break ties between equal maximum-length sequences, count the number of distinct length-three sequences they have; the hand with more distinct length-three sequences wins.

● Research into conflicts between timelocks and heightlocks: A post to the Blockstream engineering blog describes an interaction between different types of Bitcoin time locks (timelocks) and block-height locks (heightlocks).

All transactions since Bitcoin’s initial release have had an nLockTime field.

If a transaction’s nLockTime is equal to or above 500 million, it must be below the block header’s time (in epoch time).

Both conditions are true today—but they can’t both be satisfied using a transaction’s single nLockTime field.

The post notes that the same problem can apply when a transaction has multiple inputs each with their own script.

The attack consisted of inv (inventory) messages Bitcoin nodes use to notify their peers of the hash of new transactions (or other data).

In the attack, an attacker would flood the victim with an excessive number of inv messages, each containing nearly the maximum allowed number of transaction hashes.

As a bug that could only crash nodes, it could not be used to directly steal from affected nodes.

● Continued coinswap discussion: in discussion continued from two weeks ago on the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list (see Newsletter #112), several contributors developed and analyzed potential attacks against a proposed routed coinswap protocol.

If the counterparty, or a watchtower agent of theirs, is monitoring the block chain, this will fail—but the attempt will cost the attacker nothing.

The most promising solution was to require anyone spending a coinswap UTXO to spend part of the value of one of their other UTXOs to transaction fees.

This collateral payment would eliminate the costless aspect of the previously described attacks.

Each of these transactions includes the same two outputs with the same two amounts—one paying Alice and one paying Bob—but with slightly different scripts.

Similarly, if Bob unilaterally closes the channel, Alice gets a chance to spend his funds using a revocation key he created.

What Fournier proposed this week was only creating a single commitment transaction that would be shared between Alice and Bob.

When creating the transaction, Alice creates two private keys she’ll need to spend her output and gives Bob the corresponding public keys.

The other private key Alice created is the revocation private key, which she’ll give to Bob if she wants to revoke this channel state in favor of a late…

● Proposed uniform tiebreaker in schnorr signatures: the elliptic curve cryptography used in Bitcoin requires identifying points on Elliptic Curves (ECs).

This can be done unambiguously using a 32-byte X coordinate and a 32-byte Y coordinate.

However, if you know a point’s X coordinate, then you can calculate the two possible locations for its Y coordinate.

The BIP340 specification of schnorr signatures for Bitcoin currently uses a tiebreaker method to minimize the amount of data needed to identify EC points in public keys and signatures.

This was recently changed so that public keys used a different algorithm based on the evenness of the coordinates, which was believed to be easier to impl…

Field Report: How segwit and batching could have saved half a billion dollars in fees
Field Report: How segwit and batching could have saved half a billion dollars in fees Field Report: How segwit and batching could have saved half a billion dollars in fees

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

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

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

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

Read our full report here to understand the progression of fee savings over time.

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

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

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

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

- AnthonyNews of the WeekChef Nomi, the pseudonymous founder of decentralized exchange protocol SushiSwap, said Friday that they returned some 38,000 ETH — worth some $14 million at press time — to the project's treasury fund.

That move ultimately kicked off a process that saw control of SushiSwap shifted to the chief executive of FTX.

Now, large, regulated financial companies that already provide similar safekeeping services for stock certificates and the like could enter the fray.

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie fought the NBA for months over his plan to tokenize his $34 million contract.

Now, with the NBA’s concerns apparently addressed and the sale closed out, Dinwiddie’s plan hit a different obstacle: investor interest.

With shares priced at $150,000, just $1,350,000 (or one-tenth of the target $13.5 million sale) was sold.

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

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

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

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

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.

On a layer one blockchain, all computation is executed on the main chain, and all data is stored there as well.

To achieve greater scalability, Plasma moves both computation and data storage off of the main blockchain and into a second layer chain.

Link Validium returns to the idea of keeping layer 2 data off-chain, unlocking much greater scalability gains than the rollup constructions can offer.

Unlike Plasma, though, Validium doesn't rely on fraud proofs for validating computation, instead adopting zero knowledge proofs.

Compared to a centralized exchange a Validium layer 2 is still far more secure and trust minimized.

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.

A glimpse into the SNX OTC market.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Although gas prices have risen to record high levels on the Ethereum network, this hasn’t slowed Kyber’s growth as July saw it post another month of all time high new addresses (proxy for new users), unique addresses, and volumes.

Its $275M monthly volume in July is equivalent to the cumulative volume over its first 18 months of mainnet deployment while August is on track to exceed July’s volume.

June to July also saw the largest jump in new users as the DeFi narrative keeps expanding and bringing in new people to the space.

Users may opt to mix their funds prior to purchasing a ticket, or just participate in the mix taking advantage of consistent liquidity.

After 1 year of operation, the CoinShuffle++ mixer anonymizes an average of 100k DCR per day (red).

Compared to the 200k DCR on average spent purchasing tickets (green), this represents a significant relative volume onchain.

Smart Contracts: Overall activity on Tezos Mainnet is steadily growing and gas usage has reached its all-time high recently.

Most of the gas growth can be attributed to regular spend transactions and higher delegation activity, while the number of contract calls slowly declined.

Reason for the decline from its high in 2019 is that users are phasing out their delegation contracts and replace them by more efficient delegations from regular addresses which became possible with the Babylon network upgrade in October.

The recent uptick in contract call activity can probably be attributed to the first price oracle from Kaiko which started operating in early August.

Despite the Dai Savings Rate still sitting at 0%, Dai interest rates across the board have improved significantly since their initial decline following Black Thursday in March.

Many DeFi favorites are now offering attractive yields as 30 day averages for Compound, dYdX, and Aave lending rates sit between 4% and 7% APY.

In terms of actual rates, Bitfinex offers the highest yield with its 30 day average sitting at 81%.

On the flip side, borrowing Dai from Maker is cheaper than ever.

Anyone can use popular collateral like ETH, USDC, and WBTC to borrow Dai from the Maker protocol for 0% interest.

This graph shows a breakdown of which markets have earned the most COMP over time.

Early on in the COMP distribution cycle, USDT was the largest market on Compound, as its wide availability and 0% reserve factor made it a popular choice for liquidity miners.

After a community vote on June 25th, the reserve factor for USDT was raised to 20% to account for liquidation default risk.

A COMP distribution patch was passed through the governance system on July 2nd, which removed the borrowing interest rate from the COMP distribution model and replaced it with the USD value of borrowing demand.

This patch led to DAI becoming the largest market in the protocol, due to its lower level of borrow APY a…

This is issue #32 of Our Network, the on-chain analytics newsletter that reaches more than 3000 crypto investors every week.

Let's take a look at three aspects of YFI using on-chain data: farming, liquidity, and hodlers.

And Uniswap has overtaken Balancer for the deepest liquidity pools among decentralized exchanges.

The relative scarcity of YFI on exchanges is likely the main driver of price action - especially since the YFI pools stopped distributing tokens.

The YFI pools have been effective in getting YFI into the hands of thousands of wallets.

The majority of largest vaults are directly or indirectly involved in yield farming activities, mostly at Compound.

The USDC-A vault owners have the most leveraged positions, which is evident in low account liquidity.

Maker recently changed the liquidation ratio for USDC-A from 120% to 110% in order to potentially reduce DAI premium (either by helping market makers to be more aggressive at shorting DAI or by flooding markets with DAI to reduce farming yields).

In practice, the change primarily increased farming yields for these individuals, as the vast majority of DAI issued by USDC vaults recently ended up in Compound.

It is yet to be seen how much more DAI is needed to reduce the DAI prem…

Jesse: Kayvon touched on the idea of dynamic pricing in these markets, and I think that’s something worth double-clicking on.

And so you’re going to need to discover the new Jay-Zs and that takes risk and speculation.

And I think that’s been true of crypto, and maybe to a bigger degree than other technology platforms, because crypto is a finance innovation.

And I think that that’s going to be a very, very powerful model that’s proven out again in that 10-year timeframe.

You can’t just put out a token and expect that it’s going to blow up overnight and you’re going to be rich and famous.

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

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

a16z Podcast: Turning Open Source Developers Into Superfans a16z Podcast: Turning Open Source Developers Into Superfans

In this episode, we continue our community series with a recent discussion that applies to many kinds of community building.

In this discussion, which was recorded at our Crypto Startup School in April 2020, a16z General Partner Chris Dixon talked about building communities — specifically, communities of open-source developers — with GitHub cofounder Tom Preston-Werner.

They discussed how to engage early users, how to turn them into your biggest advocates, how to create superfans, and more.

Today, GitHub is the leading community for open-source developers and others.

They also discuss in-person communities vs. distributed communities, a topic that is very top of mind today.

a16z Podcast: Working, Making, Creating in Public… and Private a16z Podcast: Working, Making, Creating in Public… and Private

We’re living in an unprecedented era of online collaboration, coordination, and creation.

But the word “members” is faceless, and doesn’t help us really understand, support (and better design for) these communities.

So what lessons of open source communities do and don’t apply to the passion economy and creator communities?

How does the evolution of online communities — really, social networks — shift the focus to reputation and status as a service?

And what if working in public is also about sharing in private, given the “dark forest theory of the internet”, the growing desire for more “high-shared context” groups and spaces (including even podcasts and newsletters)?

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

Building AI systems today is increasingly a problem of coordinating large-scale and widespread data-collection efforts.

The problem of the long tail is the hairline crack at the foundation of today’s AI power structure.

But it doesn’t yet explain, however, why the long tail, in particular, is often so problematic.

And, contrariwise, why would the demand side ever pay good money for the mad ravings of an untrained neural network?

With this new bit of logic, our neural network begins to take on a life of its own as a self-funding, autonomous entity.

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

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

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

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

The First Cycle: 2009-2012The first crypto cycle peaked in 2011.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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. In this paper, we construct a unifying model for studying the security risks of these proposals.

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.

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

Proof of Liquidity
Proof of Liquidity Proof of Liquidity

Balancer liquidity pools are designed to hold a basket of tokens according to a specified index.

When you add assets to a pool, you receive ERC-20 Liquidity Provider (LP) tokens in that pool proportional to your contribution, which can be redeemed for their share in underlying assets of the pool.

For example, if a pool is 25% ETH and 75% MKR, the tokens in the pool (ETH and MKR) are available to the market.

Balancer LP tokens are similar to shares in an index fund.

But because assets held in these pools are also available for trading on the Balancer DEX, LP tokens are also useful as proofs of liquidity.

Economic imbalance and growing inequality is the new normal, but there is nothing natural about sustained economic imbalance.

The one constant in bitcoin is its fixed supply; there will only ever be 21 million bitcoin, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

Setting aside taxes and regulatory capture for a moment, if one wants to acquire bitcoin, he or she will have to provide value in return, and bitcoin will become the arbiter of that value.

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

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

Here’s how a health certificate and contact tracing system using LSATs might look:We start with a known and respected testing service that establishes a well-capitalized Lightning node.

Using the LSAT system and lightning node’s public key associated with it, payments or subsidies could be offered to those able to present a valid proof-of-test LSAT.

A related challenge is adoption of lightning and bitcoin and some of the stigmas associated with these technologies that continue to persist.

VoB: The End of the Beginning
VoB: The End of the Beginning VoB: The End of the Beginning

A few weeks ago, I gave the attached presentation (see below) at the Value of Bitcoin Europe conference (June 3, 2020).

The presentation discusses recent and unprecedented actions taken by the Federal Reserve in response to global macro crises.

Through the end of May 2020, the Fed digitally created $2.9 trillion dollars over the course of a 13-week period.

While investors in the mainstream will rationalize it as crazy but necessary to stave off a crisis, it is more appropriately “crazy but still crazy” and marks the end of the beginning, which is the title of the presentation.

The central banking model trades short-term stability for long-term volatility while bitcoin trades short-term vola…

VoB: Bitcoin is Antifragile Presentation VoB: Bitcoin is Antifragile Presentation

A few weeks ago, I gave the attached presentation (see below) at the Value of Bitcoin Americas conference (May 11th 2020, otherwise known as the bitcoin halvening III).

In reality, bitcoin (in its current state) is already a permanent fixture and it is so because, as a network, it is an antifragile system.

Whereas resilient systems withstand stress and disorder, the antifragile actually benefits from “volatility, randomness, disorder and stressors.”This describes bitcoin to its core.

In the attached presentation, I outline how the security of bitcoin is derived from its decentralized architecture and how decentralization creates antifragility.

Lastly, I will be giving another presentation a…

Battle of the dexes
Battle of the dexes Battle of the dexes

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

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

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

The recent defi boomRecently defi has enjoyed phenomenal growth and dexes such as UniSwap have been key to the defi success.

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

Eventually, towards the end of the softfork window, two different softforks, a flag day softfork (BIP148) and an 80% miner threshold softfork (BIP91) made signalling for the Segregated Witness softfork mandatory and therefore it finally activated.

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

Abstract: We look at the history of Bitcoin mining ASIC manufacturers, in particular the reported energy efficiency of the mining machines.

In conclusion we think that post the 2020 Bitcoin halving, further industry consolidation is likely in both the ASIC manufacturing sector and mining farm operating sector.

(Source: Ebang 2020 IPO prospectus)Ebang launched its first product in late 2016, the Ebit E9+.

However, for a highly volatile and capital intensive industry like Bitcoin ASIC manufacturing, which can appear mysterious and opaque to traditional investors, perhaps it is not too …

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.

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.
