For now; may be worth mentioning Casper FFG 🙂
That said, I first recommend getting comfortable with number theory and abstract algebra; there are plenty of materials for either of those… Continue reading on Medium »

Thanks a lot for the feedback! > # someBytes: private(bytes32) # error: “Base type with units can only be num, decimal” You should have just done someBytes: bytes32 . Perhaps we should add an explicit error message that redirects programmers to this… Continue Reading →
The Ethereum community, key developers and researchers and others have always recognized scalability as perhaps the single most important key technical challenge that needs to be solved in order for blockchain applications to reach mass adoption. Blockchain scalability is difficult… Continue Reading →
The first version of the Light Ethereum Subprotocol (LES/1) and its implementation in Geth are still in an experimental stage, but they are expected to reach a more mature state in a few months where the basic functions will perform… Continue Reading →
Due to a Chromium vulnerability affecting all released versions of the Mist Browser Beta v0.9.3 and below, we are issuing this alert warning users not to browse untrusted websites with Mist Browser Beta at this time. Users of “Ethereum Wallet”… Continue Reading →
Regarding bandwidth requirements for stateless clients, I can give some precise numbers. Currently, there are ~16M accounts, and tries have up to ~1M storage keys. Hence, a Merkle tree branch for a given account would have ~log16(16M) ~= 6.25 nodes, which… Continue Reading →
December marks a month of continued progress in the Ethereum ecosystem. Research on proof of stake and sharding continues after the research team’s workshop in Singapore in November, the light client slowly keeps getting better, Whisper and Swarm keep moving forward,… Continue Reading →
Not just regulation, but also government *use* of the technology. I look forward to applications in identity, transparency of gov finance, etc.
As I’ve mentioned in other places, ensuring access to bank accounts for startups is important. Often there are significant barriers to this even in environments where the regulator is ostensibly friendly.
A big thanks to our attending dev community, presenters, internal team, sponsors, enthusiasts, volunteers, event team, students and other stakeholders for coming together for another phenomenal Devcon3! First of all, yes, video of all sessions, both from the Main Hall and Breakout… Continue Reading →
On December 16, we were made aware that someone had recently gained unauthorized access to a database from forum.ethereum.org. We immediately launched a thorough investigation to determine the origin, nature, and scope of this incident. Here is what we know:… Continue Reading →
The philosophical problem with this approach is: sold by whom? These projects are generally designed with the philosophy that the central… Continue reading on Medium »
