$103M Bailout Denied for Coronavirus-Hit Firms in Switzerland’s ‘Crypto Valley’ $103M Bailout Denied for Coronavirus-Hit Firms in Switzerland’s ‘Crypto Valley’

Crypto companies hard hit by the economic impact of COVID-19 have had a plea for a 100 million Swiss franc ($103 million) bailout rejected by Switzerland’s government.

Local news site Tages-Anzeiger reported Wednesday that Heinz Taennler, finance director of the canton of Zug, had been denied a call for assistance for local blockchain startups through a sovereign wealth fund.

Taennler had planned to issue loans to local startups, which in turn could be converted into shares.

Swiss blockchain and crypto firms have warned of their impending demise with private investment drying up in recent months.

“The Crypto Valley and the entire Swiss blockchain scene face an existential danger due to the …

Enjin’s New Minecraft Plugin Lets Players Spawn Blockchain Assets Enjin’s New Minecraft Plugin Lets Players Spawn Blockchain Assets

Minecraft, one of the world’s most popular video games, has a new plugin enabling players to place blockchain assets directly into their servers.

Built by gaming startup Enjin, EnjinCraft is an open-source blockchain plugin that enables players to spawn assets in the Minecraft Java Edition without the need to write any code.

The tool works by dropping the EnjinCraft file into a player’s server “plugins” folder, where they can then begin integrating and distributing blockchain assets in the form of tokens.

Now downloaded 5.1 million times, DonationCraft allows players to grow their Minecraft servers by creating a server website and donation store.

Defying Corona Crash, BlockTower Crypto Fund Stretches 30% Total Return to 73% Defying Corona Crash, BlockTower Crypto Fund Stretches 30% Total Return to 73%

BlockTower Capital’s hedge fund of cryptocurrencies was trudging along.

Bitcoin by itself fared better than the BlockTower fund that year, gaining 1,296%.

Then, in 2018, the BlockTower fund’s holdings contracted 62.8%, compared to losses of 71.8% at Eurekahedge-indexed crypto hedge funds and 3.8% for other hedge funds.

Finally, last year, the BlockTower fund rebounded 12% versus a Eurekahedge average 15.6% return for crypto hedge funds and 8.7% for regular hedge funds.

Prior to the apparently revamped portfolio strategy, the hedge fund’s returns zigzagged from month to month, in keeping with the erratic cryptocurrency markets.

Electronics company LG joined Hedera Hashgraph’s Governing Council on Wednesday, becoming its 14th member.

The addition edges Hedera toward its council’s long-term goal: tap 39 hands-on node runners to govern its enterprise-grade public ledger, Hashgraph.

Hashgraph is an alternative to blockchain platforms with buy-in from Google, IBM, Boeing and University College London among others.

Those attributes add a fresh perspective Hedera’s telecom-heavy and Asia-light council, said Hedera CEO Mance Harmon.

Harmon claims that the Hashgraph beta can handle 10,000 transactions per second – “way faster” than blockchain-based public ledgers running ethereum and bitcoin.

Resignation at Identity Initiative Raises Doubts About Immunity Passes Resignation at Identity Initiative Raises Doubts About Immunity Passes

In her resignation email last Friday, Elizabeth Renieris cited ID2020’s opacity, “techno-solutionism,” and corporate influence along with the risks of applying blockchain to immunity passes.

She says the introduction of immunity passes could interfere with people’s privacy, freedom of association, assembly, and movement.

“Blockchain-enabled ‘immunity certificates’ or ‘immunity passports’ for COVID-19, if implemented by public authorities, would have serious consequences for our fundamental human rights and civil liberties,” she writes.

The “Rational Optimist” author gives his take on the economic history and possible futures of prosperity’s most important driver: innovationTwenty-one different people can reasonably claim to have invented the light bulb, but Thomas Edison is the one we know about.

According to Matt Ridley, it was because Edison was the progenitor of an “innovation factory” that didn’t just create things but brought them to market in a way no one else did.

Innovation is one of the most important forces in the economy, and arguably the most important driver of human prosperity over the last century.

Goldman Sachs: Cryptocurrencies ‘Are Not an Asset Class’ Goldman Sachs: Cryptocurrencies ‘Are Not an Asset Class’

Goldman Sachs held an investor call Wednesday to discuss current policies for bitcoin, gold and inflation in the context of the COVID-19 crisis.

The stalwart investment bank is still no fan of bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.

In the call materials, Goldman note that while cryptocurrencies like bitcoin “have received enormous attention,” they “are not an asset class.”Why?

“It’s like they didn’t fully diligence the asset.”Goldman’s cash flow argument was particularly odd to Tom Masojada, co-founder of OVEX Digital Asset Exchange.

With this, Goldman inferred that cryptocurrencies as a whole “are not a scarce resource,” according to the presentation.

If that doesn’t convince you, it pays homage to Sergei Mavrodi, once the world’s most notorious Ponzi scheme operator.

Versions of Mavrodi’s MMM scheme operated across the globe between the early 1990s until his death in 2018.

What differentiates MMM BSC from previous Ethereum Ponzis is that it doesn’t use ETH as its currency.

Thanks to the transparency of the Ethereum blockchain, we can learn plenty of details about the apparent MMM BSC Ponzi.

Many of the members of the MMM BSC scheme are located in relatively undeveloped African, Asian and Latin American countries.

Bitcoin Transaction Fees Decline as Network Congestion Eases Bitcoin Transaction Fees Decline as Network Congestion Eases

“The fall back in transaction fees are related to a normalized transaction activity and recent mining difficulty adjustment, which occurs around every two weeks,” said Wayne Chen, CEO of Interlapse Technologies and founder of virtual currency platform Coincurve.

Transaction fees are determined by the state of the network (how congested it is) and the size of the transaction.

If the number of transactions exceeds 1 MB, the network gets congested and miners prioritize transactions with higher fees.

As a result, transaction fees have come off highs seen on May 21.

The total number of bitcoins held in cryptocurrency exchanges wallets dropped to an 18-month low to just above 2.3 million on Monday, according to data estimates from Glassnode.

The decline marks an 11% year-to-date reduction in the number of bitcoins held by exchanges.

Meanwhile, over the same period, the amount of ether in exchange wallets increased by more than 7%.

Others see bitcoins leaving exchanges for a reason completely unrelated to strong-willed, die-hard investors, however: the rise of prime brokers.

Tagomi, a digital asset prime brokerage, was also recently acquired by Coinbase in the San Francisco-based exchange’s bid to expand its institutional trading service.

The crypto community weighed into the social media censorship debate on Wednesday after President Donald Trump was fact-checked on Twitter.

Twitter then posted a label under the tweet, offering facts about mail-in ballots—hinting that what President Trump had said was misleading.

Gab—a “free speech social network” that wants to rival Twitter—recently decentralized its network, and has grown in users.

The platform today responded to President Trump, telling him to “Get on Gab and speak freely” after he wrote he would take action against the platform.

Meanwhile, crypto-based social media platform Minds is also reportedly growing its user base, particularly in Thailand.

Signatures hint $64 million of Satoshi-era Bitcoin may still move Signatures hint $64 million of Satoshi-era Bitcoin may still move

Just last week, an age-old amount of 50 Bitcoin was moved, coins that were mined in Bitcoin’s first month of existence.

This kicked up a stir, over rumours that Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous inventor of Bitcoin, may have moved them.

These rumours were swiftly quashed, but it looks like this isn’t the only old Bitcoin that may still be active.

All the Bitcoin held in those addresses was mined in either 2009 or 2010 and hasn’t moved since.

The analysis found that every single address contains the original 50 bitcoin reward mined in the Satoshi-era.

Today, Goldman Sachs, one of the world's largest investment banks, will be holding a conference with investors discussing the current state of the economy, inflation, and Bitcoin among other things.

But despite the hype, it appears Goldman Sachs isn't likely to discuss Bitcoin favorably to its investors.

According to an image shared by Coindesk's Zack Voell on Twitter, Goldman Sachs has outright slammed cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, stating plain and simply "cryptocurrency including Bitcoin are not an asset class."

The slide also throws cold water on hopes that Goldman Sachs may be planning to expose its investors to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin (BTC) has just surged by more than $250 in the last three hours to reclaim the $9,000 price point.

Bitcoin is now trading at $9,157—up by four percent since yesterday as a result of a sudden increase in trading volume.

Bitcoin has repeatedly failed to hold $9,000, but is still in the green post halving.

However, two weeks after the third halving event, Bitcoin is now trading at three percent above its peak price on the day of the halving.

Yet sentiment about Bitcoin is down, the number of tweets about Bitcoin has dropped and the number of Bitcoin transactions are also falling.

Miner manufacturer Canaan reports $5.6M loss in Q1 after selling machines at 50% offChina-based bitcoin miner manufacturer Canaan reported a net loss of $5.6 million for Q1 2020, even though it had cut down the prices for its hardware by more than half in an effort to sell more machines.

In an earnings report released on Friday, the firm said it incurred R&D expenses worth $5.9 million – larger than in Q1 2019.

Canaan sold 0.9 million terahashes per second (TH/s) of Bitcoin computing power, which accounts for less than 1% of the network’s current total.

That means Canaan had cut down the prices for its mining hardware sold in the first three months by more than 50% to just $10 per TH/s.

Подразделение финансовой разведки Аргентины настаивает на ужесточении контроля за торговлей биткойном в рамках борьбы с «параллельными биржевыми рынками», которые ставят под угрозу аргентинское песо.

Согласно публикации местного издания El Cronista, Подразделение финансовой разведки страны (FIU) – правительственное учреждение, которое контролирует соблюдение законов о борьбе с отмыванием денег – стремится ужесточить контроль за торговлей криптовалютой.

Как отмечается в публикации, FIU начинает более пристально следить за криптовалютной индустрией в рамках борьбы с «параллельными биржевыми рынками».

Граждане Аргентины активно продают песо за более стабильные иностранные валюты в попытке сохр…

Швейцарское правительство отказало в выдаче $103 млн для фирм из «Криптодолины»
Швейцарское правительство отказало в выдаче $103 млн для фирм из «Криптодолины» Швейцарское правительство отказало в выдаче $103 млн для фирм из «Криптодолины»

Швейцарское правительство отказалось выдать пособие на 100 млн швейцарских франков ($103 млн) для поддержки криптовалютных компаний в Цуге, которые пострадали от кризиса, вызванного пандемией.

В апреле финансовый директор кантона Цуг Хайнц Таеннлер (Heinz Taennler) предложил, чтобы швейцарские власти выделили около 100 млн франков на поддержку резидентов «Криптодолины», работающих с блокчейном и находящихся на грани банкротства из-за кризиса.

Однако, по данным местных СМИ, федеральное правительство готово выделить для этих целей лишь 15 млн швейцарских франков ($15.4 млн).

Около 80% фирм «Криптодолины» вряд ли смогут получить финансовую помощь в этом году, так как на фоне экономической неоп…

Популярный криптовалютный трейдер и аналитик Скотт Мелкер считает, что сегодняшнее снижение курса биткойна до $8 700 является плохим знаком для «быков».

Скотт Мелкер (Scott Melker) отметил, что на коротких таймфреймах биткойн выглядит перепроданным, но если посмотреть на более длинные временные интервалы, то первая криптовалюта может продолжить снижение.

«На больших интервалах все выглядит плохо хотя на коротких таймфремах я вижу перепроданность и этот канал выглядит интересно.

Я немного купил биткойн с плечом на $8 700 для скальпирования», — написал Мелкер в Twitter.

Анализ цен криптовалют: нельзя исключать еще одного сильного снижения рынкаО дальнейших возможных сценариях движения цены биткоина и нескольких популярных альткоинов рассказывает ведущий аналитик RoboForex Дмитрий Гурковский.

Ключевым событием для биткоина выступит пробой уровня $9450, что может указывать на продолжение подъема к локальному максимуму.

Хорошим сигналом также выступит и пробой восходящей линии тренда, но пока покупателям удается уверенно от нее отталкиваться.

При этом не стоит исключать еще одного теста сопротивления на уровне $220, и уже от него ожидать отскока и снижения цены.

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

Now I'm a partner at a crypto venture capital firm called Dragonfly Capital—meaning in my day job I read a lot of white papers, evaluate technical crypto projects, and decide which ones to invest in.

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.

The term project will be to create your own fully-fledged cryptocurrency.

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”.

What will happen to cryptocurrency in the 2020s? What will happen to cryptocurrency in the 2020s?

In addition to scalability, I think we’ll also see privacy integrated into one of the dominant chains in the 2020s.

These crypto startups will have the challenge that all startups have: making something people want.

In the 2020’s, I think we will see cryptocurrency adoption in emerging markets scale to hundreds of millions of users, with at least one country “tipping” so that the majority of transactions in their economy happen in cryptocurrency.

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.

By shifting cryptocurrency …

Bitcoin becomes the Flag of Technology
Bitcoin becomes the Flag of Technology Bitcoin becomes the Flag of Technology

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.

Bitcoin: an ideological flag and a Schelling pointRecall that not every flag represents a geographical entity.

Bitcoin also becomes a flag in another sense: a rallying point, a Schelling point for an entrepreneurial community.

Bitcoin encodes the values of TechnologyBut when the global tech community rallies around the flag of Bitcoin, what exactly is it getting behind?

What are the Key Properties of Bitcoin?
What are the Key Properties of Bitcoin? What are the Key Properties of Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a system that automates the continual discovery of consensus amongst its participants.

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.

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.

Merkle Trees Merkle Trees

Merkle trees were invented by Ralph Merkle, one of the forefathers of modern cryptography.

Merkle trees are used widely in many applications, including Git, BitTorrent, ZFS, the Certificate Transparency framework, and of course, pretty much every cryptocurrency.

Merkle trees are also known as hash trees, because they hash data upwards in a tree.

Merkle trees in BitcoinInclusion proofs are a powerful primitive enabled by Merkle trees.

There are many more innovations on Merkle trees that are worth exploring, including proofs of non-inclusion, online updates, and n-ary Merkle trees.

Hash Functions
Hash Functions Hash Functions

But if you need stronger security (like Bitcoin does), you should use a more robust subset of hash functions known as cryptographic hash functions.

You would not use a cryptographic hash function in a hash map, since cryptographic hash functions pay for their security with worse performance.

Cryptographic hash functionsCryptographic hash functions come with three additional requirements over normal hash functions.

Thus, we know that all hash functions must have collisions—after all, all hash functions have finite output sizes, yet infinitely many possible inputs.

This is why robust cryptographic hash functions are harder to build than normal hash functions.

Satoshi Nakamoto Satoshi Nakamoto

We don't know who Satoshi Nakamoto was.

Satoshi Nakamoto began coding the first implementation of Bitcoin in C++ in May of 2007.

But mostly, early on, Satoshi Nakamoto himself was the only person running the software and mining coins.

Having slowly distanced himself from the day-to-day of Bitcoin, Satoshi eventually faded away from the project permanently.

There has never been any proof that any individual is Satoshi Nakamoto.

Sam Williams: Arweave – Bringing Permanence to the Web Sam Williams: Arweave – Bringing Permanence to the Web

The internet was originally created as a platform to communicate freely, but it soon became a place where people could be monitored, controlled, and censored. 98% of content on the internet is deleted every 20 years. More surprisingly, based on a Twitter study, a third of links change their content fundamentally or are removed completely, within three months of their creation. Arweave is a new data storage protocol that enables economically sustainable permanence for the very first time. Built on a blockchain-like structure called the blockweave, one of the applications on Arweave is what they have coined “the permaweb”. This is an array of data, websites, and decentralised applications, to…

Julian Assange, the creator of WikiLeaks, is currently in a maximum-security prison in London facing extradition to the US for violating the Espionage Act. This charge came, among other things, from exposing US war crimes in Iraq. This has put journalists around the world under fear of being prosecuted for exposing the truth.

He also discusses the economics behind tBTC-backed tBTC, his vision for DeFi, how tBTC could buffer an ETH crash, and the reasoning behind minimal governance mechanisms — playing into why institutions trust BTC more than ETH.

Plus, he contrasts the Bitcoin and Ethereum communities and talks about the possibility of tBTC2.0.

Why Nothing Is More Viral Than a Store of Value
Why Nothing Is More Viral Than a Store of Value Why Nothing Is More Viral Than a Store of Value

We cover why they think crypto in the age of COVID-19 will see new opportunity, and when there will be a recovery of the larger economy.

They also share, from an investor standpoint, their growing conviction in Bitcoin due to its long-term value proposition compared to other chains like Ethereum.

You know what we’ve been doing over the internet, paying for things with credit cards and you know that’s kluegy and there are all kinds of security risks and what were we thinking.

So the store of value certainly and this reserve currency role, there is no more important role for many and there’s nothing more viral than a reserve currency when you’re talking about currency markets.

My JourneyMy journey with cryptocurrencies started in 2014 out of necessity to control my own money.

The Bitcoin EraNow, Bitcoin was already a thing in Argentina, it just wasn’t my thing.

Being backed only by Ether, Sai is still very vulnerable to black swan events.

It has to manage not one, but two different assets used as collateral for generating Dai: Ether and Basic Attention Token (BAT).

Because of the collateral auction shortfall, the Maker System would need to recover approximately 5.4 million Dai.

The Most Forkable DeFi Protocols on Ethereum
The Most Forkable DeFi Protocols on Ethereum The Most Forkable DeFi Protocols on Ethereum

Kyle Samani of Multicoin Capital reads from his essay on how defensible each of the major DeFi protocols on Ethereum are, and what that says about Ethereum’s defensibility.

Since then, the DeFi ecosystem on top of Ethereum has blossomed: utilizing a couple dozen DeFi protocols, users have withdrawn a few hundred million dollars of debt that’s fully collateralized against an even larger pool of capital.

In this essay I’ll consider the 1) effort, and 2) capital required to fork each of the major DeFi protocols.

There are a few teams that are working on stablecoin clearinghouses, including DeFi protocols such as StableCoinSwap, and Shell; and centralized clearing houses such as Stablehouse.

People lose their common sense when it comes to the oracle problem, so it’s a good place to reality-test.

I don’t think it’s because it’s the “most decentralized.” I think the real answer is simple: reputation.

Decentralization is not a binaryBut here’s another problem with asking whether something is “truly decentralized”: decentralization is not a yes-or-no question.

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.

Как должен быть устроен governance децентрализованного проекта?

Выясняем вместе с Глебом Науменко из Bitcoin Core и Кириллом Пименовым из Parity.

Как было принято это решение и как подобные решения будут приниматься в будущем; не является ли это как раз объектом гаверненса.

1:15:57 — вопрос Глеба Кириллу: из-за DeFi возникает проблема того, что вкладывать в DeFi выгоднее, чем стейкать.

Не добавляет ли governance ещё одну степень свободы, ещё больше затрудняя анализ системы?

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 0.16.3 Released
Bitcoin Core 0.16.3 Released Bitcoin Core 0.16.3 Released

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.

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.

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.

With Blockstream Green Desktop, you can now create 2-of-3 multisig accounts, with an additional third key held offline for recovery.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 …

Bitcoin Core refuses to relay or mine transactions smaller than 82 bytes.

As described in Newsletter #36, permanently eliminating the ability to perform that attack was proposed in the consensus cleanup soft fork by forbidding transactions with a stripped size of fewer than 65 bytes.

After describing the motivation for the current relay rule, Sanders asks whether the rule can be simplified to only forbid transactions whose stripped size is exactly 64 bytes.

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.

Dmitry Petukhov posted about a specification he’d written for the protocol in the TLA+ formal specification language, helping to test the correctness of the protocol.

● Request for an additional taproot signature commitment: an idea previously discussed among Bitcoin experts would be allowing hardware wallets to automatically sign any transaction as long as it provably increases the user’s balance.

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.

This would allow hardware wall…

● BTCPay adds support for sending and receiving payjoined payments: payjoin is a protocol that increases the privacy of Bitcoin payments by including inputs from both the spender and the receiver in an onchain transaction.

This prevents an outside observer examining block chain data from assuming all inputs in that transaction belong to the same user (e.g.).

If a significant number of people use payjoin, this makes the common input heuristic used by block chain analysts much less reliable, improving privacy for even Bitcoin users who aren’t using payjoin.

This may seem unnecessary given that BIP32 already provides extended private keys (xprvs) that can be shared between signing wallets.

The offchain delegation operations are all performed with the cooperation of a trusted third party who can only steal funds if they collude with a delegated signer (such as previous delegates Alice or Bob).

A delegated signer can always spend the UTXO onchain without needing permission from the trusted third party, arguably making statechains less trusted than federated sidechains.

The downside of this approach is that delegates might need to wait a long time before being able to spend their funds without permission from the trusted third party.

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.

That the true security threshold matches the private attack threshold in all these protocols is not a coincidence.

It is due to an intimate connection between the private attack and any general attack.

Through these concepts, any attack can be viewed as a race between adversary and honest chains, not just the private attack.

Second, existing token-exchange oriented interoperability protocols, such as atomic cross-chain swaps (ACCS) , are not generic enough to realize cross-chain dApps.

Within this programming framework, a blockchain-neutral and extensible model is proposed to describe cross-chain dApps, and a high-level programming language to write cross-chain dApps under the proposed programming model.

A prototype is implemented in approximately 35,000 lines of code and evaluated with three categories of cross-chain dApps.

State channels extend the concept of payment channels to states in order to support smart contracts.

Multi-party state channels introduce significant conceptual and engineering overhead beyond layer-one solutions: the contract state must be verified in a non-native representation.

These are state channels that reuse the exact state representation of the underlying ledger and, hence, inherit the ledger’s scripting system as well.

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.

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…

Aave Watch also has a breakdown of the fees by asset which shows how much has been collected, how much is yet to be collected, and how much comes from Flash Loans.

A 0.09% fee is collected from every Flash Loan.

70% of this fee goes to reward depositors, and the remaining 30% is split 80/20, with the 20% from that going to 3rd party integrators/referrals (source).

As you can see, the majority of flash loans occur using ETH, DAI, and USDC, while USDC and sUSD have collected the largest share of fees on Aave.

The next graph again looks at average trade size over the past 60 days, but related to each asset class available on the platform.

Adding to the previous data, we can see the breakdown of average trade size per volume based cohort.

Almost $250,000,000 USD worth of goods or services have been purchased in the first 12 months via CHAI and the Terra network.

One impressive last fact is the amount of fees collected by the Terra network until now.

Although the Polkadot mainnet has not yet been released, an early-release and unaudited version of the code has been used to produce the network Kusama.

Note that Kusama is not a testnet; it is a network existing in its own right and on which teams are currently building.

The number of Substrate nodes being tracked by telemetry continues to increase.

This is actually lower than the hashrate we were seeing in March since we last checked in for Handshake on Our Network Issue #13.

DAO deposits.

The native token of Nervos CKB is known as CKByte or CKB for short.

By depositing in the Nervos DAO, the CKB holdings will never be diluted by secondary issuance.

Below is a graph showing the growth of Nervos Dao deposits since mainnet launch.

As of writing, 4.94 billion CKB (~34.9% of the circulating supply) is locked in Nervos DAO at 3.47% APC (annual percentage compensation).

Dai lending rates on dYdX and Compound went wild as there was a massive demand for Dai amid the liquidity crisis.

Since then, Dai lending rates have experienced a steep downturn as lending rates across DeFi protocols struggle to offer anything substantial relative to historical yields.

One of the more interesting things to note with Dai lending rates is Nuo’s “step-ladder” decrease in rates over the past 30 days.

While it was apparent that the DSR was one of the main drivers behind Dai lending rates, it seems that the DSR also has an effect on U…

The topic at issue was ZEIP 76, a meta-ZEIP for standardizing the ZEIP process itself.

It was, however, the first vote after the introduction of the new ZRX token economics in v3.

However, since half of the voting power remains with stakers, the stakers can collectively cancel out the vote of the operator should they choose to do so.

With 8.4M ZRX in voting power represented, the vote was the largest ZRX turnout for a vote yet, surpassing the vote for v3 of the protocol (which represented 6.6M ZRX).

Most of the ZRX voting power represented belonged to staking pool operators.

This is in contrast to traditional market capitalization which values each unit of supply uniformly at the current market price.

Historically, the periods where market cap has dropped below realized cap have been some of the best times to buy Bitcoin.

Together the top 5 custodial exchanges manage 136M tez (21% staking supply, 16.4% total supply).

Around 3% (10M staking supply owned by bakers and another 7M delegated to them) went inactive during March.

A lack of Dai liquidity was one of the main reasons that the liquidation auctions ended poorly.

To illustrate, Pearson correlation coefficient between ETH and DAI price (both 24h rolling VWAP) for last month measures -0.82.

The total amount of USDC collateral is 11.725m, and the total debt from this is 6.838M Dai (171% collateralization ratio).

It’s also worth noting that whales dominate these Vaults: The largest Vault represents 41% of total USDC Dai debtThe 5 largest Vaults represent 78% of total USDC Dai debtThe 10 largest Vaults represent 88%.

Supply: The total circulating supply of HNS was hampered during the period of transfer lockups, reflecting only mining rewards, that is, until transfers were unlocked on February 13th, when the blockchain surpassed 2016 blocks.

The subsequent and sudden increase in total circulatory supply jumped by 63%, increasing the total circulating supply from 3.7M to 237.8M, over the course of 24 hours.

The majority of those transaction activities are characterized by airdrop redemptions.

While airdrop amounts were pre-allocated to recipients, the allocated amounts did not count toward circulating supply until airdrops were redeemed.

Fun fact: As to be expected anytime there is financial incentive inv…

Economic activity of Chainlink oracle networks in aggregate has been steadily increasing since mainnet launch on May 30th, 2019.

This is due to a combination of fluctuations in the price of the ERC677 token LINK (used to request data from nodes), an increase in active nodes, and an expanding array of oracle networks.

In total, node payments have increased from $400 of LINK per day to approximately $7,000 of LINK per day, a growth of 17.5x.

Payments per day have become more volatile as oracle networks can update on a static schedule (e.g.

This chart shows the LINK payments to each node per day, multiplied by the LINK/USD close price each day.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
