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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

BitPay cooperated with OFAC as the agency investigated the charges.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This all happened during South Sea mania.

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

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

What we have learned about bitcoin after the unexpected hash rate drop reinforces the bullish narrative.

What We Learned From Bitcoin’s Hash Rate DropBitcoin has been riding high of late.

Yet over the weekend, panic ensued following a significant drop in its network hash rate, down roughly 49%, the biggest 24-hour reduction in Bitcoin’s history.

And with a decline in Bitcoin’s hash rate, a price correction pushed its value down to a low of ~$50,000.

Simply because Bitcoin carries on functioning 100% in spite of the hash rate drop.

Despite Hash Rate Drop, Surge In Transaction Fees, Bitcoin Is Resilient Despite Hash Rate Drop, Surge In Transaction Fees, Bitcoin Is Resilient

A recent plummet in hash rate and spike in transaction fees has raised some questions about Bitcoin’s resilience.

Over the weekend, the Bitcoin hash rate dropped off a cliff, leaving many industry participants wondering what had happened.

Over the last couple of days, information and context has been provided by industry experts as to what was behind this steep fall in hash rate.

When a large proportion of hash rate shuts off, the pace at which blocks are mined subsequently slows down.

As a result of lagging hash rate over recent days, along with increasing demand to utilize the Bitcoin network, total miner revenue has reached all-time highs.

Why I Would Not Vote For A Bitcoin Party

The beauty of Bitcoin is that it does not need a formal political party in order to enact change.

Having politicians that promote Bitcoin and write legislation to protect the rights of bitcoin holders is a great thing, but a formal political party centered around Bitcoin would cross a bridge too far.

Any Bitcoin political party would be organized around the goal of moving the United States to a bitcoin standard.

I already vote for the Bitcoin Party, and so do you, each and every time we stack sats.

However, it is imperative we do not give into these fears by organizing into a political party that strengthens Bitcoin through legislative force.

Snoop Dogg Twist on Nyan Cat NFT Sells for $33K Snoop Dogg Twist on Nyan Cat NFT Sells for $33K

If Snoop Dogg were to drop an NFT, you'd expect the cannabis-loving rapper to do so on 4/20.

A collaboration between Snoop and the digital artist behind the 2011 Nyan Cat meme netted 14.2 ETH ($33,000) in an auction on the OpenSea marketplace.

NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are blockchain-based digital assets that confer ownership of an associated asset, typically virtual trading cards, collectibles, or pieces of art.

The Nyan Dogg NFT builds on that, transforming the rainbow-defecating, Pop Tart-shaped flying cat into a cap and chain-clad dog.

As it so happened, two members had connections to Snoop's manager and Chris Torres (Nyan Cat).

It was supposed to be Dogecoin’s day to shine, as meme makers talked up the joke coin’s prospects of hitting the $1 mark (or, even better, $0.69) on 4/20.

Its current price of $0.34 represents a 20% drop over the last 24 hours, per data from Nomics.

Musk last week invoked Dogecoin in a tweet, spotlighting the currency to his 50 million followers as it catapulted from $0.14 to $0.40 in mere days.

Musk said in a February talk on Clubhouse that his tweets about Dogecoin are "meant as a joke," but there’s ample evidence that those tweets, even if crafted in jest, have a direct effect on Dogecoin’s price.

The Doge faithful are likely still hoping, as of Tuesday evening, that Musk hasn't forgotte…

В блокчейне биткойна в понедельник был зафиксирован длиннейший интервал между добавлением двух блоков за недавнюю историю криптовалюты.

Поскольку большинство сервисов требует от 2 до 6 подтверждений для зачисления депозита BTC, это означает, что пользователям, отправившим свои транзакции в этом и предшествующих блоках, пришлось ждать дольше двух часов.

События разворачиваются на фоне снижения хешрейта биткойна, вызванного перебоями с подачей электричества майнерам в Китае.

За сутки время блока в сети биткойна составило 15 минут 29 секунд при целевом показателе в 10 минут.

Тогда может произойти рекордное снижение сложности, после чего время блока вернется к обычным 10 минутам.

На прошедшей неделе биткойн показал значительную волатильность, особенно в сравнении с относительно спокойной консолидацией, в которую рынок вошел еще в конце февраля.

Однако этот подъем было недолгим: за ним последовала распродажа, на пике которой, в воскресенье, курс BTC упал на -20% до минимума в 52 829 долларов.

Проанализировав средний размер новых UTXO, созданных в сети, можно примерно оценить средний размер инвестиций новых участников.

Most of my projects, in white, they don’t actually show anything and just go to simplicity.

It’s actually DeFi that will be controlled by a centralized entity pretending to run a DeFi solution or maybe getting involved in blockchain.

I think that’s a sneaky move from them because they will, they are very likely to succeed.

I want to force myself to remind myself when I’m actually getting into this article as if I’m from the future.

This is an example of most of the staking as a service, they don’t actually support the vision of decentralization.

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

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

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

During the DeFi Summer of 2020, YAM Finance launched with a bang, and had its share of ups and downs within its first couple of days. It started out as an experiment to bring together some of the more innovative ideas in the space. It sparked a movement which brought massive attention to yield farming, and started the food token craze. After a bug was discovered in the v1 contract, many thought the project was dead.

Ric Edelman, founder of Edelman Financial Engines, and Matthew Kolesky, president at Arbor Capital, discuss the state of Bitcoin adoption amongst financial advisors, who control $5 trillion in investor wealth.

Not only did I realize that, I realized something else: the vast majority of financial advisors don’t understand this.

And so we’re launching our certificate in blockchain and digital assets, a 10 module online self study course for financial advisors.

So there’s no unbiased, purely educational resource designed by financial advisors for financial advisors.

I did want to say this, and I feel really, really passionate about it: this is not a zero-sum game.

Алексей – соавтор DeFi-протоколов Neutrino и Gravity, являющихся альтернативой широко известному проекту MakerDAO, но в экосистеме Waves.

На экосистеме различие не заканчивается: во-первых, сама суть того, за счёт чего обеспечивается стабильность токена, в Neutrino несколько иная; во-вторых, есть много позитивных моментов в том, что протокол разрабатывается на Тьюринг-неполном языке RIDE.

Об этих различиях, а также о планах проекта мы поговорили в выпуске.

Gain Privacy with the Encrypted Blob Gain Privacy with the Encrypted Blob

The Encrypted BlobUsing changes added in GDK 0.0.39, we’ve added support for end-to-end encrypted client data—the “encrypted blob.” Your transaction notes and account names are stored in the blob, securely encrypted and protected from external changes.

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

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

Today’s Blockstream Green update is part of an ongoing effort to increase privacy and reduce trust requirements for our users.

We want to communicate these changes to you since not …

Coordination, Good and Bad
Coordination, Good and Bad Coordination, Good and Bad

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

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

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

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

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

Trust Models Trust Models

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

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

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

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

● Taproot activation discussion: since our last update on discussion about activation methods for the taproot soft fork in Newsletter #139, the Speedy Trial proposal became the focus of attention among those interested in activation.

To also use MTP for the time when nodes stop counting block signaling for a soft fork that hasn’t locked in yet.

However, in a difference from BIP9, the MTP stop time is only checked at the end of retarget periods where counting was performed.

Even though height may differ on those networks, they can all use a minimum activation height of 0 to activate within the window defined by MTP.

We hope this momentum to activate taproot continues and we’ll be able to rep…

The paper models a network of channels having a uniform distribution of balances within their respective channel capacity.

The paper uses its conclusions to provide a routing algorithm that it claims can reduce payment retry attempts by 20% compared to their simplification of existing routing algorithms.

The new algorithm prefers routes with a higher computed probability of success, whereas existing algorithms use a heuristic approach.

The algorithm was tested against several example networks, including one dr…

Scaling Bitcoin using Payment Batching
Scaling Bitcoin using Payment Batching Scaling Bitcoin using Payment Batching

This doesn’t prevent payment batching from being useful, although it does reduce its effectiveness.

In the second step, the service spends from one of its consolidated inputs using payment batching and achieves the best-case efficiency described above.

In addition to payment batching directly providing a fee savings, batching also uses the limited block space more efficiently by reducing the number of vbytes per payment.

ConcernsThe fee-reduction benefits of payment batching do create tradeoffs and concerns that you will need to address when using the technique.

Last week, Jeremy Rubin posted to the Bitcoin-Dev mailing list a description of a technique to accomplish delegation using Bitcoin today.

The Bitcoin software used this by default when the public key material could be handled entirely by software.

Public keys in the original Bitcoin implementation were 65 bytes, but address hashes were only 20 bytes.

Additionally, discussion participants pointed out that anyone who shares their individual public keys or BIP32 extended public keys (xpubs) with third parties would also be at risk from a powerful QC if their public keys leaked.

However, a user who prepares ahead when creating their taproot address can also spend bitcoins received to that addre…

● Rescuing lost LN funding transactions: LN funding transactions are not safe in the presence of transaction malleability.

If a txid mutation happens, then the pre-signed refund transaction is not valid, so the user can’t get their funds back.

Additionally, the remote node may not automatically see the funding transaction and so may not be able to help the funder get their money back.

Christian Decker also posted a proposed change to the LN specification to help facilitate funding recovery efforts.

A draft implementation for this proposal based on Bitcoin Core’s existing BIP9 implementation was also written by Anthony Towns.

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

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

There appeared to be support among participants for using the BIP8 activation mechanism with the earliest allowed activation time about two months after the first release of Bitcoin Core containing the activation code and the latest allowed activation of that initial deployment about one year subsequently.

More controversial was whether the LockinOnTimeout (LOT) parameter should default to true (requiring miners to either eventually signal in favor of the new rules or risk a chainsplit) or false (allowing miners to signal …

● Replicating OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK with BIP340 and OP_CAT : Andrew Poelstra authored a blog post about implementing the functionality of the OP_CHECKSIGFROMSTACK ( OP_CSFS ) opcode from ElementsProject.org on Bitcoin using the proposed BIP340 specification of schnorr signatures and an OP_CAT opcode that was part of Bitcoin until mid-2010 (and which is often mentioned as a candidate for reintroduction).

Enabling CSFS-like behavior on Bitcoin would allow the creation of covenants and other advanced contracts without having to presign spending transactions, possibly reducing complexity and the amount of data that needs to be stored.

- AnthonyNews of the WeekVisa announced Monday that it now settles payments in the USDC stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain.

The development means Visa has become the first major payments network to use stablecoin as a settlement currency.

For its new USDC settlement capability, Visa is initially working with Crypto.com, letting the crypto firm manage its card business now entirely in digital assets.

Previously, Visa's standard settlement process required Crypto.com to settle in a fiat currency, which added cost and complexity for the firm.

It supports NFT artists and collectors, in addition to providing Uniswap V3 NFT LP token holders a seamless selling solution.

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

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

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

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

Is there more to UNI than that, or are these governance tokens little more than viral marketing schemes?

Before SushiSwap was even launched as an exchange, it was possible to earn Sushi tokens by providing liquidity to Uniswap.

The Sushi token price has recovered some of its losses.

Will users and liquidity migrate back to Uniswap once the rush to farm Sushi tokens dies down?

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

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

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

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

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

To understand this, we need to add the next layer of the system: governance.

The governance token, called COMP, would be distributed to users in a way similar to those weighted polls of the past.

Users began intentionally lending or borrowing on Compound with the explicit goal of earning, or “farming,” COMP.

What's made it possible so far is high demand for the base governance tokens of protocols like Compound.

Even in the best case scenario, demand for these governance tokens must eventually level off as they reach a fair market valuation.

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

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

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

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

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

① NEAR📈 NEAR has processed nearly 2b transactions to dateNEAR Protocol is (as of writing) on blockheight 33,012,780 with 181 online nodes (60 validating).

Transaction volume picked up October 2020 and has been sustained (spikes excluded) with a slight uptick in March 2021.

Cost PerspectivebloXroute Labs is building the crucial network infrastructure, aimed at scaling all blockchains, by enabling a fast blockchain network layer.

In Ethereum, μE is controlled by the gas limit parameter, while λE is gas used in a block.

When the gas limit μE decreases by 20%, the transaction fees double.

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

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

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

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

Time is now the only factor standing between Handshake and long-term success.

② SuperRareContributor: Richard Chen, Partner at 1confirmationThe crypto art industry has exploded in the last few months, with the total crypto art market cap surpassing $100M just a few days ago.

Monthly crypto art volume is on pace to surpass $20M in February.

As a result of new NFT demand, average artwork prices have gone exponential and not just because ETH price is increasing.

The data also implies that crypto art is decent at storing value denominated in ETH.

On January 13th, the Compound community voted to update the distribution of COMP across various markets.

Rather than issuing COMP to suppliers and borrowers based on borrowing demand, governance determines a set amount of COMP to distribute to each market.

The community decided to decrease the distribution to the DAI market by 31% in order to reduce the risks introduced by yield farming, and more evenly spread COMP across the smaller markets.

From the 1980s through the early 2000s, the dominant internet services were built on open protocols that the internet community controlled.

Much of the software running on an Apple device is open source, as is almost all modern cloud data centers including Amazon’s.

This has allowed these companies to outpace the growth of open source software and maintain control of critical internet infrastructure.

Multicoin Capital has accumulated a large position in RUNE, the native token of THORChain, a decentralized cross-chain automated market maker (AMM).

There is a tremendous opportunity to build products that enable trust-minimized, cross-chain trading.

In a world where many chains and tokens exist, traders naturally want to be able to trade assets across chains in a trust-minimized way.

The first of such cross-chain trading examples was the Tier Nolan atomic swap.

The diversity of chains creates the need for a trust-minimized, decentralized way to trade spot tokens across chains.

The Perpetual Protocol
The Perpetual Protocol The Perpetual Protocol

Back in August 2020 we led a $1.8M investment in a new automated market maker (AMM) protocol focused on perpetual contracts: Perpetual Protocol, aka Perp.fi!

Once collateral is deposited, traders trade perpetual contracts just as they would on centralized exchanges, but with one key difference.

First, PERP holders govern the protocol, including managing parameters such as trading fees, asset listings, insurance fund management, and more.

Perhaps the best thing about The Perpetual Protocol is that it can be used to trade any asset with a public price feed.

That means it can trade perpetual contracts for cryptos, commodities and or any asset in any asset class.

While Swivel offers more leverage for interest rate speculators than ZCB protocols, Swivel does not offer fixed-rate borrowing, and so we are interested in the ZCB model as well because Swivel and ZCB protocols will serve different segments: Swivel for interest-rate speculation and fixed-rate lending, and ZCB protocols for fixed-rate borrowing.

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

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

Exploring The Design Space of Liquidity Mining
Exploring The Design Space of Liquidity Mining Exploring The Design Space of Liquidity Mining

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

In this essay, we explore the design space of liquidity mining and outline a framework by which DeFi teams can construct a useful liquidity mining program that incentivizes long-term capital retention.

Objectives for Liquidity MiningThe most important step when designing a liquidity mining program is to determine the exact objectives of the program.

The Original Sin
The Original Sin The Original Sin

This piece is about one thing: what is the initial distribution of the capital that underpins a cryptonetwork?

In a recent conversation between the Placeholder and USV teams, Fred Wilson commented that with organizations he’s experienced going south over time it can often be traced back to an original sin at inception (team, approach, economics or any other pivotal decision).

For crypto, an original sin we regularly observe is insiders owning too much of systems that are marketed as public, egalitarian networks.

At Placeholder we have targeted 1-5% network ownership on a fully-diluted basis, with Placeholder’s most concentrated position coming in at 7% ownership fully-diluted.

We present a method for constructing Constant Function Market Makers (CFMMs) whose portfolio value functions matches a desired payoff.

More specifically, we show that the space of concave, nonnegative, nondecreasing, 1-homogeneous payoff functions and the space of convex CFMMs are equivalent; in other words, every CFMM has a concave, nonnegative, nondecreasing, 1-homogeneous payoff function, and every payoff function with these properties has a corresponding convex CFMM.

We demonstrate a simple method for recovering a CFMM trading function that produces this desired payoff.

This method uses only basic tools from convex analysis and is intimately related to Fenchel conjugacy.

Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi
Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi Systemic Risk Mitigation in DeFi

Economic conditions, technology, and human practice are all subject to change, and thus approaches to systemic risk mitigation must also evolve over time.

Before considering strategies for systemic risk mitigation, it is important to identify individual types of risk with systemic implications.

Similarly, systemic risk mitigation in DeFi relies heavily on how risk and emergency situations are managed at the level of individual users, businesses, and networks.

In comparison to traditional finance, the key technological advantages of DeFi as it relates to systemic risk mitigation are higher levels of digitization, transparency, and automation.

It may therefore seem premature to think about sy…

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

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

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

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

Third, it enables decentralized funding of open source projects.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Balancer Thesis
Balancer Thesis Balancer Thesis

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

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

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

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

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

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

The concept of personal sovereignty has always been important to me.

For someone like myself, trying to tackle the technical aspects of bitcoin was quite daunting.

I quickly realized that to achieve the personal sovereignty I was after, I would need to learn an entirely new skill set and get comfortable with the technology.

For many people, this can be daunting and often prevents them from ever experiencing the financial freedom that Bitcoin natively delivers.

For me, self-sovereignty was what motivated me to take control of private keys and understand the technical aspects of bitcoin.

SegWit is a way of increasing the Bitcoin blocksize, without the new client being incompatible (i.e.

A Florida-based Bitcoin developer called Luke Dashjr had figured out a hack, which made SegWit possible as a compatible (softfork) Bitcoin upgrade.

With people arguing over the blocksize limit, the proposal removed the limit and replaced it with something else, thereby negating the argument.

Therefore, to many small blockers fixing this issue was a prerequisite to a blocksize limit increase.

Most large blockers believed that fixing these bugs should not be a priority; it was the blocksize limit that was key.

This is another example of a distinction which was crucial to small blockers, but which the large blockers simply did not see or agree with.

The Bitcoin XT software was extremely controversial inside the so-called “small block” camp, primarily because it was an incompatible upgrade to the network.

Control of a software repository, of course, does not mean control over Bitcoin, as Bitcoin users can run any software they like, from any repository they like.

On August 17, 2015, two days after the official launch of Bitcoin XT, Theymos a…

Taproot: You Betcha
Taproot: You Betcha Taproot: You Betcha

In this post, I’ll describe how in a User Activated Soft Fork, Bitcoin holders can verifiably commit to losing coins2 if Taproot does not activate, which honestly signals a commitment to only recognize a chain which enforces Taproot.

/// > If taproot is active, the funds are safe in that key /// > If taproot is not active, a miner may steal the funds declare!

{non updatable} } /// The actual logic for each TapBet impl TapBet { /// The waiting period is over, sample if Taproot is active guard!

So, should you rush out to go and make an honest signal that you want Taproot by a certain date?

Would someone really pay you to lose money to miners if Taproot doesn’t activate?

Progress towards Utreexo Goals Progress towards Utreexo Goals

Here is how current block validation works compared to Utreexo CSN block validation for extending the main chain:Current Block validation Utreexo CSN block validation 1.

We avoid having to soft fork by having transitional nodes called bridge nodes that bridge the new Utreexo nodes and current Bitcoin nodes.

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

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

Going forwardAs mentioned in “Current Progress on Claim 1”, we will be doing more performance optimizations on the Utreexo CSN.

We also benchmarked our results against the real Bitcoin network and we were able to beat the real Bitcoin miners by generating 0.15% more in hypothetical fee income.

The Bitcoin developers have designed the transaction selection algorithm to select transactions which should maximise fee revenue.

Figure 3 below shows the differences in fee income between our locally produced blocks and the real network blocks over time.

At the early stage transaction censorship is likely to be based on a blacklist, with only a few economically insignificant UTXOs listed.

ConclusionIt is the proposed transaction censorship pool which has prompted us to conduct this research.

Abstract: In this nostalgic look back into Bitcoin’s history, we go back over eight years, to the London Bitcoin Conference of 2012.

OverviewIn this piece we review the London 2012 Bitcoin Conference, held at Imperial (Russell Square) on the 15th and 16th of September 2012.

It was the first major Bitcoin conference this author attended and the second major conference ever, following the Prague conference in 2011, which many of the attendees had been to.

The tickets to the event cost £50, you could either pay cash on the door or in advance with bitcoin.

If you did not spend your bitcoin when going to a Bitcoin conference, when would you ever spend it?

Let’s first define the terms here one more time, and then proceed to the non-naive, private Stake Certificates.

ConclusionWe propose Stake Certificates, a new solution to channel jamming.

Since this might be useful in other contexts (Sybil-resistance of many kinds, proof-of-ownership), discussing Stake Certificates is even more useful.

Regular vs blind merge miningIt is also important to explain and identify two theoretical types of merge mining: regular merge mining and blind merge mining.

Regular merge mining is conducted by Bitcoin miners, while blind merge mining can normally be conducted by anyone, who then pays Bitcoin miners in fees.

Characteristics of regular vs blind merge miningRegular merge mining Blind merge mining Who conducts the mining?

Unfortunately, as far as we are aware, currently merged mining is primarily conducted the regular way, and blind merge mining is relatively rare.

Examples of blind merge mining systems include two competing proposals: an earlier proposal from Paul Sztorc’s (who identified ma…

Abstract: In this short piece, 100x Group grantee Calvin Kim provides a quick update on the development of the Utreexo implementation.

Calvin is now looking forward to focusing on performance, integration with existing Bitcoin implementations, and adding robust tests to the codebase.

Last year, when my first PR was merged, the Utreexo project was just past its proof of concept stage.

With the merge of https://github.com/mit-dci/utreexo/pull/192 which revamps the disk-storage for Utreexo bridgenodes, I believe we’re a step further in completing our implementation of the Utreexo project.

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

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

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

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

But I think that the right way to think about multi party computation is basically just an implementation of multi signature.

And they are trying to get into the DeFi right now.

Arthur 36:32I think right now, I think for Nexus Mutual is a, it’s a bit of a debate.

After our episode on the top 20 crypto coins (#15) by market cap, we got a lot of requests to do one for Defi as well.

For that discussion, we brought in one of the foremost experts on Defi.

Arthur0x went from being one of the earliest users and investors at Synthetix, Aave, and Kyber, to running the largest Defi-focused fund in all of Asia.

The conversation ran pretty long, so we are releasing it in two parts.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Like it’s, it’s, I’m, I’m, I’m really actually unhappy with it, but at the same time, it was very interesting to see, but, but I, I traced all of the sell events.

So, so I’m, I’m, I’m tempted to say that that’s already, I’m already observing that.

But again, that’s, that’s, that’s one of those, those fascinating side effects that like, like so much has already happened, that I could not predict them in any kind of design ideas.

It’s entirely plausible that we could regain the heady $20,000 level within the next few weeks or months.This time, it’s happening without much fanfare, and without the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) phenomenon which intensified the price action (investors bought BTC in order to participate in ICOs, driving the price up).If you gauge metrics of retail investor interest in the asset, whether it’s tweets or google searches, Bitcoin is still languishing well below it’s highs.
