Telegram’s Defeat Isn’t ‘Binding’ in Kik Case, Judge Tells SEC
Telegram’s Defeat Isn’t ‘Binding’ in Kik Case, Judge Tells SEC Telegram’s Defeat Isn’t ‘Binding’ in Kik Case, Judge Tells SEC

Nearly 200 people dialed in to listen to Thursday’s hearing, which took place just over a year after the SEC filed suit.

When SEC counsel Stephan Schlegelmilch invoked the Telegram case as a very similar token offering to Kik’s, Judge Hellerstein interrupted.

He noted that Judge P. Kevin Castel, who presided over the Telegram case, only found that there was a “likelihood of success” in the preliminary injunction ruling.

Shlegelmilch went on to allege that Kik continually promised it would give the kin token value, referencing Kik’s 2017 white paper, which laid out its plans for kin.

Judge Hellerstein pushed back on that statement.

The social payments app Bottlepay (née Bottle Pay) aims to relaunch in the next few weeks, after shuttering due to regulations in December 2019.

After restructuring the bitcoin wallet product to fit Europe’s anti-money laundering directive (AMLD5), the British startup is offering an exchange wallet with social features on Reddit, Twitter and Discord.

Bottlepay co-founder Pete Cheyne said there are over 1,000 people on the waitlist for the closed beta relaunch in August.

“Lightning works in the background, without users having to manage channels,” Cheyne added.

Webster added the company won’t support tokens in the near future, although it might someday.

Bitcoin Reaches Record High Correlation to S&P 500
Bitcoin Reaches Record High Correlation to S&P 500 Bitcoin Reaches Record High Correlation to S&P 500

Bitcoin’s one-year correlation to the Standard & Poor’s 500 index hit record highs as the leading cryptocurrency continues to trade in lockstep with traditional financial markets.

Bitcoin’s correlation to the benchmark index of U.S. stocks has made new all-time highs for the past three consecutive trading days.

Bitcoin’s one-month correlation to the S&P, for example, reached a multi-year high of 0.79 on Wednesday, according to data from Skew, indicating a much stronger short-term correlation trend as levels of investor uncertainty and expected volatility remain high.

Because the successful emergence of any new currency, which by definition implies mass adoption, depends on similar moments of exponentiality.

For centuries, particularly throughout the 20th century, the solution to mass currency adoption was clear: wielding the power of the state.

Economic and geopolitical stress, combined with the opportunities posed by new digital currency and blockchain technologies, are creating the conditions for alternatives to challenge the global monetary system’s dollar-centric sovereign structure.

If China is to meet its international currency adoption ambitions, it must entice foreign businesses and individuals to the DCEP.

But, with a touch of Trumpian hyperbole, he suggests that journalists and rivals are trying to keep his project down.

This week’s animus surrounds a video that made the rounds on social media last week, which showed a marketing group promoting the Cardano project in a rural province of China.

Both the Cardano project and Hoskinson said they have no affiliation with the group.

Take Kyber Network Crystal (KNC), which is used to pay trading fees on the decentralized exchange Kyber.

The token’s price has surged eight-fold in 2020.

At the current rate, the platform charges trading fees of 0.20%, some 65% of which go directly to stakers.

According to the data aggregator Dune Analytics, decentralized exchanges are averaging a combined daily volume of about $60 million in July.

The U.S. Federal Reserve’s balance sheet is contracting, but despite popular opinion, that’s not necessarily bad news for bitcoin.

And Wall Street’s equity index has rallied by over 40% since a slump in March, largely on the back of Fed’s balance sheet expansion.

Bitcoin giveaways, other scams pull in $24 million so far this year Bitcoin giveaways, other scams pull in $24 million so far this year

Crypto criminals are stealing more money than ever—and they’re not even trying very hard.

In the first six months of 2020 alone, $24 million in Bitcoin was bagged by scammers, according to a report released today by blockchain tracking and analytics provider Whale Alert.

The $24 million raked in by scammers so far this year makes up the most of ill-gotten gains by criminals over the last four years, which according to Whale Alert is $38 million in stolen Bitcoin.

(Notably, Ponzi schemes are left out of the total, which themselves account for billions alone, said Whale Alert.)

Whale Alert explained that crypto scams are doing so well because they have become more aggressive.

Then, the SEC took Telegram to the courts and blocked the project, forcing the company to return most of the money to investors.

And during a dial-in hearing yesterday in which lawyers for the SEC and for Kik traded jabs in oral arguments, the SEC invoked the Telegram to plead its case.

"I understand that Judge Castel's [the judge that presided over Telegram’s case] decision has a lot of reasoning that is comfortable to you,” Judge Hellerstein told the SEC’s lawyers.

Judge Hellerstein noted, however, that this alone isn’t enough to grant SEC’s motion for summary judgment against Kik.

"I think that there is no binding precedent on me one way or another," said Judge Hellerstein.

The US Secret Service is one of the most enigmatic and entrenched law enforcement agencies in America; now, in a one-off interview, the service has revealed its views on cryptocurrency and cybercrime.

First established in 1865 and tasked with preventing the then-widespread counterfeiting of US currency, the Secret Service has since garnered a reputation as presidential protectors.

Modernizing the Secret ServiceSpeaking to Forbes, US Secret Service cyber policy advisor Jonah Force Hill offered an on-the-record insight into the service's modernized role.

Crypto funding post-coronavirus: where are the VCs?
Crypto funding post-coronavirus: where are the VCs? Crypto funding post-coronavirus: where are the VCs?

The battering taken by the global economy could mean that less money is directed into the crypto and blockchain industry.

Crunching the numbers on VC fundingIn April, at the height of the pandemic, disclosed VC funding for crypto projects dropped by more than 50%.

Since then, overall funding in the blockchain industry has stagnated, according to Crunchbase.

Wayne Lin, founder of Axia8 Ventures and a former senior partner of Shanghai-based BN capital, estimates (as a “snap judgment”) a 40% decline in crypto funding since the start of the year.

“Blockchain and crypto are clearly here to stay,” said Alexander S. Blum, co-founder and COO of crypto asset management firm Two Prime.

Bitcoin maximalist Tuur Demester goes long on Ethereum

Prominent Bitcoin (BTC) advocate Tuur Demeester has changed his mind on the merits of holding Ethereum (ETH) and has bought in—after five years of slamming Bitcoin’s closest rival.

He’s emphasized that he’s still a Bitcoin believer, and retains plenty of reservations about Ethereum.

He’s not the only Bitcoin maximalist to be open to making money from Ethereum.

He explained that recent world events meant he was less excited about focussing primarily on Bitcoin, and the harsh line that was adopted by some Bitcoin fans.

Why is Bitcoin’s supply limit set to 21 million?
Why is Bitcoin’s supply limit set to 21 million? Why is Bitcoin’s supply limit set to 21 million?

In Bitcoin’s case, the upper limit was set by its creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, at exactly 21 million.

At the time of Bitcoin's creation, the entire world's money supply stood at approximately $21 trillion.

Looking at the parameters used to control Bitcoin's supply, it becomes clear that the 21 million BTC figure allows the network to ensure that blocks are mined in a regular timeframe (10 minutes).

As it turns out, the parameters Satoshi set for this inevitably lead to the production of a maximum of 21 million BTC.

By multiplying this number by the 210,000 blocks/cycle figure, you arrive at the maximum possible supply of 21 million.

XRP tweets hit all-time high after 14% price surge XRP tweets hit all-time high after 14% price surge

There were more than 29,000 tweets about the cryptocurrency XRP yesterday, setting a new all-time high and coming shortly after a 14% surge in the coin’s price.

XRP tweets hit an all-time high of 29,143 on July 9.

XRP’s market cap amounts to a mere third of Ethereum’s and a twelfth of Bitcoin’s.

The surge in the number of tweets is likely being led by a small revival in the coin’s price.

Despite the minor bounce, XRP is still slipping down the cryptocurrency market cap rankings.

The United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) said earlier this week that it can’t find the man allegedly responsible for a $147 million crypto scam, so it’s asking a court to resolve the case without him.

Benjamin Reynolds, the missing man of the hour, was the director of Control-Finance, a UK-based cryptocurrency investment company that the CFTC alleges raked in 22,859 Bitcoin from more than 1,000 customers when it operated between May and September, 2017.

Конечно же, трейдеры, следящие за развитием ситуации во флэте, увидят в этом возможность для открытия лонга на пробой линии тренда в ожидании следующего этапа бычьего ралли.

Понимание того, что медведи на текущий момент оказались в ловушке, может послужить основанием для еще одного уверенного движения вверх.

Венесуэльские военные изъяли 315 майнеров Antminer S9 Венесуэльские военные изъяли 315 майнеров Antminer S9

Военные в Венесуэле задержали грузовик с оборудованием для майнинга криптовалют.

Согласно публикации, грузовик марки «Chevrolet» перевозил 315 майнеров Antminer S9.

Портал Criptonoticias сообщает, что в Венесуэле были введены строгие карантинные меры, в соответствии с которыми автомобильные поездки на дальние расстояния запрещены.

Майнинг криптовалют в Венесуэле является официально признанным видом деятельности, а штраф за владение или использование такого оборудования без разрешения может достигать $18 000.

Это первый случай изъятия майнингового оборудования в Венесуэле с начала года.

Группа разработки финансовых мер борьбы с отмыванием денег (FATF) представила доклад, посвященный стейблкоинам. Его лейтмотивом стали потенциал массового внедрения «стабильных» монет и необходимость следования их эмитентами и криптовалютными биржами требованиям организации.

Запуск нулевой фазы Ethereum 2.0, скорее всего, не состоится до конца этого года.

Такое мнение выразил разработчик Джастин Дрейк, отвечая на вопросы завсегдатаев Reddit.

Например, тестовой сети с поддержкой более трех клиентов следует проработать без перебоев 2-3 месяца.

Также перед запуском Ethereum 2.0 нужно провести программу по выявлению багов.

Дрейк сослался на свой более ранний твит, в котором говорится, что разработчики «сами сделали сложным» процесс подготовки к запуску Ethereum 2.0, основательно подойдя к подготовке клиентов обновленной системы и решению прочих задач.

Аналитики исследовательской компании Weiss Crypto Ratings спрогнозировали ралли биткоина до $70 000 к середине следующего года. На это указывает модель Stock-to-Flow (S2F). S2F рассчитывается как отношение общего доступного предложения актива и его ежегодного прироста. Аналитики определили, что на основе этой модели цена биткоина должна значительно вырасти в течение ближайших 12 месяцев.

You’ll probably get lost from time to time, but if I'm doing my job, you’ll still get the gist of it.

You'll notice this course is completely free, and there's a specific reason why I want it to be free.

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.

Bitcoin seeks to address the root problem with conventional currency: all the trust that’s required to make it work .

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.

ConvergenceAny two Bitcoin clients, if they connect to a single honest peer, should eventually converge on the same chain tip.

As an example, Bitcoin ABC broke this principle by instituting a 10 block maximum chain reorganization rule.

Credible Neutrality As A Guiding Principle
Credible Neutrality As A Guiding Principle Credible Neutrality As A Guiding Principle

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.

It Will Take Years for Smart People to Understand Cryptocurrencies
It Will Take Years for Smart People to Understand Cryptocurrencies It Will Take Years for Smart People to Understand Cryptocurrencies

States cannot be trusted with absolute power, and power over money is their best weapon in controlling people and spreading misery.

And when we get going about sound money, and the idea that fiat money = misery, therefore cryptocurrencies = freedom and happiness, it just sounds insane to them.

We are not interested in it.”It took smart people years to understand the power of the Internet, and it will take smart people years to understand the power of crypto currencies.

Or any of thousands of other experiments being conducted by smart people trying to do their own thing.

Like the Internet, crypto currencies and other blockchain experiments can be used for good or evil.

A beginner's guide to DeFi
A beginner's guide to DeFi A beginner's guide to DeFi

In this beginner’s guide to decentralized finance (“DeFi”) we review the following:Stablecoins.

Decentralized lending.

And these smart contract lego pieces can even create completely new concepts that haven’t been explored in the traditional world.

Another potential issue is that the interest rate volatility on many DeFi platforms could make it impractical for someone to participate.

With that said, these hedging methods themselves are in their infancy, and add smart contract risk of their own.

Coinbase’s Pragmatic Crypto Culture
Coinbase’s Pragmatic Crypto Culture Coinbase’s Pragmatic Crypto Culture

Meanwhile, from the perspective of crypto outsiders (including many people, banks, and governments), anything concerning crypto is scary—no one controls it!—and decidedly not pragmatic.

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.

Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains
Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains Zcash, the HTTPS of Blockchains

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

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.

Just like all software, smart contracts on the blockchain are subject to serious security vulnerabilities and coding errors.

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.

New bugs, security risks, and best practices will continue to emerge over time.

Trail of Bits is a software security firm who advise in a range of industries for some top companies, including in the blockchain space.

Nexus Mutual provides an alternative decentralized insurance solution for Ethereum.

The protocol is built on the public chain and operates under a discretionary mutual structure meaning it is owned wholly by its members.

When Nexus Mutual is alerted to a claim, members will also be asked to vote on whether to pay out on that claim or not.

Hugh Karp, CEO and Founder of Nexus Mutual, has combined his insurance industry knowledge with his passion for decentralized technology to build this platform which is replacing the traditional insurance setup.

They are currently looking into expanding to offer more insurance products and we are excited to see where they go next.

Opyn is a smart contract-based insurance platform built on a generalized (supports both put and call) options protocol called Convexity.

If you buy Opyn protection, you are buying “the right but not the obligation to sell an asset at a pre-specified price”.

Currently, you can buy insurance for DAI, ETH, and USDC deposits on Compound and it is completely noncustodial and trustless.

Zubin Koticha, CEO & Co-founder of Opyn, is currently working on V2 of the platform with his team.

This is a much-needed generalizable insurance solution against some attacks/ vulnerabilities within the DeFi ecosystem and it will be very interesting to see how their contribution to DeFi progresses.

In late 2017, Gabriel Jimenez was approached by the Venezuelan presidency and asked to create a national digital currency, the Petro. Although very much against the regime, Gabriel saw this as a chance to save his country which was on the brink of economic collapse. A new currency that would move freely over an open network, like Bitcoin. And the government would not be able to control it. So he agreed. Things didn’t go as Gabriel had envisioned. Months later, Gabriel almost paid with his life when he was held at gunpoint by military guards in the President’s palace. He was accused of being a traitor to the government and was forced to hand over the project, which still hasn’t taken off. La…

I don’t think there’s a one-size fits all solution because different projects need different governance mechanisms in different ways.

Ready Layer One: Who Competes With Ethereum?
Ready Layer One: Who Competes With Ethereum? Ready Layer One: Who Competes With Ethereum?

So our panel where we’ve got a number of founders of Layer One protocols, which I believe a year ago maybe we were calling them Ethereum killers but I don’t know if that’s the term nowadays.

If you don’t think that Ethereum is direct competitor of Bitcoin, obviously I think you don’t understand this area.

So you know, just from that one example I don’t know if I would say miners were the ones who decided.

I think there’s a lot of super interesting designs here in 2.0, but I feel like Ethereum gets all the credit of Ethereum 2.0 with none of the deployment.

Like Ethereum could pivot and decide, you know, there’s like a lot of things that we like about the newer technology stack, it’s close e…

Listen to CZ Compare Binance to Bitcoin Listen to CZ Compare Binance to Bitcoin

So, after the halving, the supply of Bitcoin is actually going to be decreased.

It will work on both chains, and then, when you have it on a Binance chain, there’s a Binance decentralized exchange, the Binance DEX, that works out of the gate.

I think that’s really depending on how a person likes to view, that depends on their work view.

I think, again, I think that’s kind of a binary definition, you’re either a traditional company or you’re a OAw.

Well, that’s going to have to be where we’re going to end, because it’s now 8 a.m., and that’s it.

Hopefully, the audience here caught my Unconfirmed episode with Hasseb Qureshi on these incidents because it was actually really, really fun chatting with him and definitely it’s a crazy story so you should check that out.

You should respond to those really, really quickly and professionally.

If no, that’s a serious concern and that’s really the underlying most fundamental concern that I could have about the project.

About this EpisodeIn this episode, we chat with Flavio Bergamaschi from IBM research about Fully Homomorphic Encryption (FHE).

FHE allows for computation on encrypted data.

First developed in 2009 at IBM, this tech has long been the considered only theoretically possible.

However, as we learn in the interview, there have been strides made in the last few years and we are starting to see FHE technology being used in some real world applications.

In this interview, we discuss the origin of the technology, what it is, how it can be combined with other cryptographic techniques such as MPC and ZKPs, and applications for FHE technology being explored today.

CVE-2017-18350 Disclosure
CVE-2017-18350 Disclosure CVE-2017-18350 Disclosure

Disclosure of the details of CVE-2017-18350, a fix for which was released on November 6th, 2017 in Bitcoin Core version 0.15.1.

The vulnerability was introduced in 60a87bce873 (SOCKS5 support) and first released in Bitcoin Core v0.7.0rc1 in 2012 Aug 27.

To be vulnerable, the node must be configured to use such a malicious proxy in the first place.

Upon a connection request from the node, the malicious proxy would respond with an acknowledgement of a different target domain name than the one requested.

To fix this vulnerability, the dummy buffer was changed to an explicitly unsigned data type, avoiding the conversion to/from a negative number.

CVE-2018-17144 Full Disclosure
CVE-2018-17144 Full Disclosure CVE-2018-17144 Full Disclosure

Full disclosureCVE-2018-17144, a fix for which was released on September 18th in Bitcoin Core versions 0.16.3 and 0.17.0rc4, includes both a Denial of Service component and a critical inflation vulnerability.

Thus, in Bitcoin Core 0.14.X, any attempts to double-spend a transaction output within a single transaction inside of a block will result in an assertion failure and a crash, as was originally reported.

In Bitcoin Core 0.15, as a part of a larger redesign to simplify unspent transaction output tracking and correct a resource exhaustion attack the assertion was changed subtly.

Instead of asserting that the output being marked spent was previously unspent, it only asserts that it exists.…

Bitcoin Core version 0.16.3 is now available for download with a fix for a denial-of-service vulnerability introduced in Bitcoin Core 0.14.0 and affecting all subsequent versions though to 0.16.2.

We highly recommend users of all affected versions immediately upgrade to 0.16.3.

Security issue CVE-2018-17144: it was discovered that older versions of Bitcoin Core will crash if they try to process a block containing a transaction that attempts to spend the same input twice.

This release eliminates the crash, allowing the software to quietly reject such invalid blocks.

If have any questions, please stop by our IRC chatroom and we’ll do our best to help you.

Bitcoin Core 0.16.2 Released
Bitcoin Core 0.16.2 Released Bitcoin Core 0.16.2 Released

Bitcoin Core version 0.16.2 is now available for download.

The attack was considered unlikely given that much cheaper attacks of roughly equal effectiveness are well known.

Similarly, the getblock RPC also now returns extra information that can be used to defeat this attack even if the requested block has been pruned.

As before, you can call this RPC when you no longer want your wallet to re-broadcast an old unconfirmed transaction.

If have any questions, please stop by our IRC chatroom and we’ll do our best to help you.

Bitcoin Core version 0.16.1 is now available for download.

Fixing a bug that could’ve potentially caused miners to lose revenue if they produced two blocks in very rapid succession.

The presence of this opcode makes it difficult for nodes to estimate how much computational work will be required to validate a legacy signature script.

Because of that, it blocks the deployment of solutions to prevent attackers from creating blocks that require a long time to validate.

This ensures that everything that descends from an invalid block is marked as such.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bull Bitcoin Launches L-CAD on the Liquid Network Bull Bitcoin Launches L-CAD on the Liquid Network

Blockstream is excited to welcome the launch of Liquid CAD, a brand new asset on the Liquid Network created by Bull Bitcoin, one of the leading Bitcoin exchanges in Canada and a member of the Liquid Federation.

Liquid CAD (L-CAD) acts as a Canadian dollar payment system built on top of the Liquid Network.

Announcing Lightning Loop Beta: An On and Off Ramp for the Lightning Network
Announcing Lightning Loop Beta: An On and Off Ramp for the Lightning Network

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.

Announcing lnd v0.9.0-beta! Announcing lnd v0.9.0-beta!

We’re working to do our part to kick off the new decade right with the release of lnd v0.9-beta !

In lnd v0.9-beta , we’re making a significant step in this direction with the ability to receive “multi-path payments” (MPPs) (the non-spontaneous variant).

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

RoutingAs discussed in the Routing Node Guide blog post series, we expect that over time, routing nodes will become more selective about the quality of nodes they connect to.

CompatibilityThere were a number of compatibility changes made in lnd v0.9-beta that will primarily be useful to developers of other Lightning imp…

This section will further provide suggestions for how a routing node operator can configure their node so as to become more attractive to Lightning routing algorithms.

Channel acceptance policiesAs the Lightning routing network evolves, we envision that routing nodes will become more selective about the channel requests they accept.

As the routing node operator adds capital, another thing to keep in mind is increasing security commensurate with the additional funds stored.

The Lightning Conference in Berlin is just around the corner, and to make things a little more exciting for conference attendees (and for everyone else, really), today we’re announcing the release of lnd v0.8.0-beta !

Note that SAFU commitments are only used for new channels that are created between parties support SAFU Commitments (which is now default in lnd v0.8.0-beta ).

Another safety improvement in lnd v0.8.0-beta is the addition of Per-HTLC Invoice Tracking.

Staying Safe from the Recent Lightning Vulnerability
Staying Safe from the Recent Lightning Vulnerability

We have created tools one can use to check if your lnd node was targeted.

The exploit was fully patched in lnd version v0.7.1 (released July 30th 2019) and partially patched in version v0.7.0 (released July 2nd 2019).

Of the two checks, failure to check the scriptpubkey (#1) is more disastrous, since an attacker can costlessly open thousands of invalid channels per block.

If you’re running lnd version v0.7.1-beta and above, then you’re safe.

Channel LimitsThe Lightning Network specification currently requires a hard funding limit of 16.7M satoshis, and a payment limit of 4.2M satoshis.

by Valentine WallaceToday we’re excited to announce the first alpha release of lndmon : a drop-in, dockerized monitoring solution for lnd .

Besides preventing network trouble, lndmon is a flexible monitoring tool for routing node operators and other users who want to track how their channels change over time.

Prometheus scrapes metrics from lndmon, and Grafana presents the data in eye-catching graphs.

Nginx is an optional component of lndmon which adds the ability for users to access their dashboards remotely over TLS.

If anyone using this project creates a graph they find useful, they’re encouraged to submit a pull request to the lndmon project so others can benefit from it as well.

Loop Out In-depth
Loop Out In-depth

You are effectively looping the payment back to yourself, hence the name Lightning Loop.

The user sends a payment tied to this hash to the Lightning Loop server.

To prevent this the server requires a second Lightning payment called the prepayment to be made along with the swap payment.

From that point onwards, the preimage is to be considered public knowledge and the user should expect their Lightning payment to be settled at any time.

With the received on-chain funds another channel can be opened and this channel can be Looped out too.

White pawns take going left-and-up or right-and-up, black pawns take going left-and-down or left-and-up.

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.

Understanding PLONK
Understanding PLONK Understanding PLONK

How PLONK worksLet us start with an explanation of how PLONK works, in a somewhat abstracted format that focuses on polynomial equations without immediately explaining how those equations are verified.

We will need to create a structured system of equations, which will ultimately reduce to a very small number of polynomial equations, to represent both.

To make the problem actually challenging (and actually represent the problem encoded in the original circuit), we need to add an equation that verifies "copy constraints": constraints such as \(a(5) = c(7)\), \(c(10) = c(12)\), etc.

The only remaining polynomial in the above equations is \(Z(x) = (x - 1) \cdot (x - \omega) \cdot ... \cdot (x …

This week’s newsletter summarizes a proposed BIP for BIP32-based path templates and includes our regular sections with the summary of a Bitcoin Core PR Review Club meeting, releases and release candidates, and notable changes to popular Bitcoin infrastructure software.

Path templates provide a compact way for the user to describe to the wallet what paths they want to use.

The compactness of path templates makes it easy to back up the template along with the seed, helping prevent users from losing funds.

An additional feature of the proposed path templates is the ability to describe derivation limits (e.g.

● Discussion of HTLC mining incentives: Itay Tsabary, Matan Yechieli, Ittay Eyal posted to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list with a paper they’ve written.

They claim that rational miners should want to run a modified Bitcoin node that allows a user to bribe it with a transaction that’s timelocked and can’t be confirmed until some point in the future.

The authors of the paper propose a solution they call Mutually Assured Destruction HTLCs (MAD-HTLCs).

These require Bob to provide a hashlocked bond that makes him reveal his own preimage when sending his timeout settlement.

In the long term, this is an incentive compatibility concern that protocol developers may want to keep in mind.

In the current LN protocol, each time the channel state is updated, the party who initiated opening the channel must commit to paying any onchain transaction fees for the unilateral close transaction.

The party paying the fees also gets to choose the feerate used—but the counterparty’s security also depends on the feerate being appropriate.

That means the counterparty may close the channel at any time if they think the chosen feerate has become too low for current market conditions.

If that feerate is five times higher than strictly necessary, this can easily result in paying more than $100 USD in transaction fees at current bitcoin prices.

Several other ideas are mentioned, but Pickhardt a…

The authors outline how CoinPool could work using existing features of Bitcoin plus taproot, SIGHASH_NOINPUT , and the ability to use a delete-only accumulator via Bitcoin Script (e.g.

To create a coinjoin, takers contact several makers, collect their input and output information, and create the transaction template.

The taker directly gains the privacy benefits of the coinjoin and the makers directly gain income for providing liquidity.

This model gives takers a lot of flexibility with their own inputs and outputs to the transaction template.

This allows constructing the transaction template without the coordinator learning which inputs funded which outputs.

This will cause the hardware wallet to under-calculate the transaction fee by that same understated amount.

Of course, networked wallets are vulnerable to other attacks, which is why hardware wallets can enhance user security.

In response, Trezor has updated its firmware to require copies of previous transactions for segwit UTXOs the same way it requires them for legacy UTXOs.

Software that creates or updates Partially Signed Bitcoin Transactions (PSBTs) will need to be upgraded to include the full copies of previous transactions into the PSBTs.

The previous standard protocol uses four transactions.

Additionally the keys necessary to spend the coins won’t be contained in the user’s BIP32 HD wallet, so additional backups may be required.

If taproot is adopted, swaps can be made even more privately and efficiently.

Commenting on the protocol, Lloyd Fournier noted the “elegance” of a simplified version of the protocol that uses three transactions.

This could make it easy for the hardware wallet to automatically participate in coinjoin transactions or LN payment routing.

However, several years ago, Greg Sanders described an attack that could be used to trick a hardware wallet into thinking that its balance was increasing when it was actually decreasing.

Finally, the attacker would put both signatures into a final transaction and broadcast it, stealing money from the wallet.

Reflexer Labs is building RAI, a dampened version of ETH that is meant to be used as collateral in other DeFi protocols.

If you want to know why everyone’s so excited about this EIP, I suggest giving this piece a read.

These funds will go a long way to making sure this EIP gets the love it deserves so that it can be safely included in the Ethereum protocol.

I also caught up with Alex Saunders from Nuggets News again last week to discuss the previous months worth of Ethereum news.

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.

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.

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.

Coda Protocol opened up its grants program to both technical and community projects!

It has already collaborated on earlier grants with leading ecosystem participants such as Figment Network, Gauntlet and DSRV Labs.

The project has set aside $2.1M in token grants for such projects before mainnet, with 7 projects already awarded grants.

In addition, Coda has its Genesis grants program for leading testnet participants.

It's currently onboarding the next cohort of 150 new members, after onboarding its first 40 members earlier this year.

Diving deeper into a specific virtual world project, we looked at CryptoVoxels.

CryptoVoxels users purchase virtual land (called parcels) to create NFT art museums, shops, and recreational areas.

Since CryptoVoxels started as a single developer in mid-2018, both trading volume and the average price of CryptoVoxels parcels has grown steadily over time.

The developer has put the ETH earned from parcel sales and secondary trading fees back into expansion and development of the world.

CryptoVoxels average price and volume over time on OpenSea (source):

This is issue #28 of Our Network, the free newsletter about on-chain analytics that reaches nearly 3000 crypto investors every week.

This week our contributors cover projects in the DEX ecosystem: Curve, Kyber, 0x, dYdX, and Uniswap.

Following its inception and the initial growth, Curve was absorbing 1-2M in daily trading volume on average until recently.

Trading volumes touched $60M daily, with total trading volume over all time of existence of the platform exceeding $500M (source).

(Source)Almost half of the weekly trading volume consists of USDC<>USDT swaps - the most popular to facilitate COMP farming.

Uniswap flippens itself.

Since our last update, Uniswap v2 has overtaken v1.

Here are the most recent figures:Uniswap v2: $40M liq ($20M vol)Uniswap v1: $30M liq ($5M vol)Combined, Uniswap holds $70M of liquidity, representing slight growth since v2 launch (roughly attributable to ETH price rise).

Growth: The total number of new Tezos delegators continued to grow and reached its highest growth ever (+7.5k) in May and is set to keep this pace in June.

Over its short 2 years of existence, Tezos went through two growth epochs already and is in the middle of its third.

Eventually, an epochs ended with a new low in delegator churn rate.

At the end of each epoch, Tezos had gained 2-3x more delegators.

The most recent epoch seems to be not over yet, although churn is declining, delegator growth keeps increasing while at the same time the custodial uptrend is broken.

Locking DCR for tickets is an action that tells us something about the holder who performs it.

This action represents some degree of long-term commitment and, for those who use their tickets to participate in voting on consensus and Politeia proposals, an interest in the how the network is run.

The final two graphs are constructed by following the DCR paid to 1) contractors paid by the Treasury, 2) miners paid by block rewards - recording the proportion that ends up in different kinds of "outcome".

See here for more detailed methodology, here for code.

After following the DCR paid to contractors for 5 hops, 31% had been sent to exchange-associated addresses, 29.4% had been used to buy ticke…

CompoundContributor: Nick Martitsch, Business Development at CompoundTotal supply on Compound is currently at $480 million from 23,000 unique addresses.

In this graph, you can see the roughly 11,520 total COMP that has been earned across all Compound markets, with 91% of COMP going to USDT suppliers/borrowers.

As a result of this influx, both of these Compound wallets are at the time of writing among the top 15 largest stablecoin-holding addresses.

Our newest market is Uniswap, which has been live since May 28th and already contains $533K in total liquidity.

To better understand where these rewards are actually coming from, a look at Terra’s merchant integrations through the CHAI wallet is necessary.

There are currently 24 merchants integrated with CHAI and rising.

The CHAI data is uniquely insightful into consumer spending behavior at scale.

All CHAI data is provided by DSRV Labs who are operating chaiscan.com.

Terra underwent a hard fork in early December and only data since then is being taken into consideration.

The total number of unlocked inflationary reward tokens (to date) is 16,337,502 SNX, which is distributed across 425 wallets.

Out of these tokens, 10,353,390 have been manually vested by 147 wallets.

Having a relatively small percentage of unlocked plus vested wallets provides some insight into the psychology of Stakers.

Vesting does not provide any significant benefits for Stakers that are long the system and there to provide collateral to the network.

Regardless of locked or otherwise, any SNX that is attributed to their address can be used as collateral and therefore helps to maximize the Stakers yield.

Experimentation around new pools has also been on the rise.

There are now 236 pools, up from ~70 a couple of weeks ago.

The flexibility of the protocol allied with powerful incentives seems to be waking up dormant liquidity: portfolios that were just sitting in a hold strategy are now beginning to see the opportunities of joining a Balancer pool.

One good example is the currently most liquid pool: a 90/10 RPL/ETH whose tokens were just being held prior to joining a Balancer pool.

The uneven weights configuration is a great way to kickstart liquid venues especially when there’s limited ETH or fiat at the LPs’ disposal.

Because of this, tracking the total percentage of blockspace (gas) being consumed by a protocol shows just how much stress (demand) an application is putting on Ethereum’s bandwidth.

A higher level of gas consumption is bullish, but at the cost of making Ethereum transactions for everybody else.

The chart below shows what percentage of gas available each day is being consumed by Chainlink oracle networks.

At mainnet launch, with only a single price feed (ETH/USD) and three nodes, Chainlink was consuming 0.33% of Ethereum’s daily bandwidth available.

Over the course of 2019 this rose to a peak of 3.5% when there was two price feeds (ETH/USD and BTC/USD) each with 21 oracle nodes causing a 10…

Welcome to Issue #22 of Our Network, the newsletter about on-chain analytics that reaches almost 2000 crypto investors every week.

The Maker WBTC contract now has a balance of 2,626 Wrapped Bitcoins, almost 14x higher than #2 on the list (Set Protocol).

Indeed, we’ve seen many pools increase the proportion of rewards shared to pool members, as shown in the chart below.

Dust Pool’s increase of rewards shared from 5 to 10% on March 24 helped solidify their position as the top staked pool at the time.

Likewise, Prycto’s increase in rewards shared from 5 to 12% on April 22 preceded with their re-taking of the top spot.

Welcome to Issue #21 of Our Network, the newsletter about on-chain analytics that reaches almost 2000 crypto investors every week.

Miner revenue, which is composed of block rewards and transaction fees, is critical to the overall security of the Bitcoin network.

Over the long run the Bitcoin network will need to become more reliant on transaction fees to make up for that lost revenue.Interestingly, Bitcoin fees have been surging in the few days after the halving.

A sustained surge in transaction fees would be good for miner revenue, and an overall positive sign for the long-term health of the network.

These metrics take the ratio between network valuation (market cap or realised cap) and th…

Loyalty: Tezos is all about delegated proof of stake and its community is very close knit so we were interested in visualizing the behavior of delegators over time.

We see that a genesis wave of staking occurred during the first 4 months, then a second wave followed with the price surge in Spring 2019 and a third much larger wave followed in Nov 2019 when custodial staking opened.

Long-term hodlers who dominate Tezos are very loyal to their bakers: out of the 35.5k currently active delegators 27.5k (77.5%) have never left.

Over time only half of all delegators became disloyal at all and only 14% have switched baker multiple times.

Delegators who leave eventually stick on average of one year…

Blockchain Research Newsletter #7: Coded Merkle Tree: Solving Data Availability Attacks in Blockchains Blockchain Research Newsletter #7: Coded Merkle Tree: Solving Data Availability Attacks in Blockchains

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we are covering a protocol for solving data availability attacks in blockchains called SPAR (Sparse Fraud Protection) which leverages a new accumulator called a Coded Merkle Tree.

This paper was recently published by Yu et al., and provides an efficient data availability scheme for light clients.

One of the first proposals for using erasure coding to combat data availability was by Buterin.

Coded Merkle TreesA coded merkle tree (CMT) is a modified merkle tree in which every layer of the merkle tree is erasure coded.

It makes use of a novel hash-based accumulator called coded merkle tree in order to guarantee its efficiencies.

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we are covering a well-understood but informally defined concept, Proof-of-Burn.

Moreover, in this paper, the authors provide a general Proof-of-Burn protocol that can be used for any cryptocurrency.

In addition to providing this protocol, they go into depth about a particular use case for a Proof-of-Burn protocol: bootstrapping a new cryptocurrency.

ProtocolThe authors provide a Proof-of-Burn protocol that satisfy all the properties previously discussed.

Moreover, we went over a construction of a Proof-of-Burn protocol that the authors proposed that satisfy the various definitions given for secure Proof-of-Burn protocols.

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we will be covering Incentives in Ethereum’s Hybrid Casper Protocol by Vitalik Buterin et al.

This paper provides a mathematical framework for analyzing the incentives of Casper FFG as originally planned in EIP1011.

Moreover, it analyzes the liveness and safety properties of Casper FFG and shows that the hybrid Casper protocol provides better guarantees than pure PoW.

Casper FFG DescriptionAt its core, Casper FFG is a smart contract deployed onto a PoW chain with enough expressiveness like Ethereum.

Eventually, the total stake controlled by voting validators will reach and exceed ⅔ of the total stake.

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we will go through Towards a Functional Fee Market for Cryptocurrencies, a paper that proposes an alternative fee system to the current way blockchain networks price transaction fees.

This results in a saw-tooth-like pattern for transaction fees.

Just as in GFPs, the highest bidder gets the highest slot, the second highest bidder gets the second highest slot, etc.

A miner looking to make a profit will select the K highest bids or all available bids if there are less than K bids available.

A block is full if it has K transactions or it has fewer than K transactions and pays a fill penalty, which is (K - # of tx in block) * fee paid by ea…

Blockchain Research Newsletter #3: NiPoPoW and FlyClient Blockchain Research Newsletter #3: NiPoPoW and FlyClient

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we summarize two proposals for developing trust-minimized light-clients for proof-of-work blockchains: Non-Interactive Proofs of Proof of Work (NIPoPoWs) and FlyClient.

It only needs to store a logarithmic number of block headers and provides strong mechanisms for ensuring the validity of these block headers.

Block headers need to include a Merkle root to a MMR that contains commitments to all the previous block headers of the chain.

Both are designed to have a light client only store a logarithmic number of block headers instead of a linear number of block headers.

The authors of FlyClient show that FlyClient can provide up to a 40% im…

In this edition of the Blockchain Research Newsletter, we will be summarizing and comparing two papers on blockchain privacy solutions, Zexe (Zero Knowledge Execution) and Zether.

Before we deep dive into Zexe, we will go over the Zerocash protocol upon which Zexe is based on.

Then, we will go over the DPC scheme that makes up the core of the Zexe protocol.

As such, Zether is a layer 2 privacy solution for account-based blockchain systems, whereas Zexe provides a privacy-preserving scripting language on top of a UTXO-based blockchain system.

ConclusionIn summary, Zexe proposes a new UTXO-based blockchain protocol that not only provides functional privacy but also data privacy.

Blockchain Research Newsletter #1: Avalancheby Mikerah and John AdlerIn this edition, we will be focusing on a novel family of leaderless consensus protocols introduced by an anonymous group called Team Rocket.

Finally, Snowball is augmented using a DAG structure to store and order transactions to create Avalanche.

If the node doesn’t get enough queries, then it’ll query the network again until it gets k queries back.

Surprising enough, in order to get Snowflake from Slush, all we need to do is add a counter to Slush.

The nodes keep on increasing the counter by 1 until a query returns a different color than its current color.

Parallel Chains, a method set forth by the IOHK research team, aims to provide a method to scaling both PoW- and PoS-based blockchain protocols.

Parallel Chains in Proof of Stake settingThe presentation of Parallel Chains in a PoS settings assumes that Ouroboros Praos is the PoS algorithm.

Roughly, Parallel Chains in the PoS setting involved running m copies of the slightly modified Ouroboros protocol in parallel such that all of these copies maintain a joint blockchain.

Parallel Chains in Proof of Work settingA key distinction between Proof-of-Work chains and Proof-of-Stake chains is the complete lack of a synchronized clock in the former.
