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 »

The History of Casper – Chapter 2

This chapter describes the game theory and economic security modelling we were doing in the Fall of 2014. It recounts how the “bribing attacker model” led our research directly to a radical solution to the long range attack problem. Chapter… Continue Reading →

This second category of advisors should be your advisors from day one.

This second category of advisors should be your advisors from day one. IMO even having the first kind of advisor during the sale should be viewed as being a bad actor.

I think this article really deserves a bold clarification/correction.

I think this article really deserves a bold clarification/correction. It uses “transaction volume” in a few places as a synonym for “total quantity of ETH sent”, which is not a usage of that term that I have ever seen in… Continue Reading →

This is very useful.

This is very useful. This basically means that any future application could automatically whitelist KGT holders as part of either a “N tokens per person” airdrop, or for another application or sale that needs to exclude US buyers. If someone… Continue Reading →

zkSNARKs in a nutshell

The possibilities of zkSNARKs are impressive, you can verify the correctness of computations without having to execute them and you will not even learn what was executed – just that it was done correctly. Unfortunately, most explanations of zkSNARKs resort… Continue Reading →

Geth 1.7 – Megara

The Go Ethereum team is proud to announce the next release family of Geth, the first incarnation focusing on laying the groundwork for the upcoming Metropolis hard forks (Byzantium and Constantinople), consisting of 125+ code contributions for various parts of the… Continue Reading →

Ethereum Research Update

This week marks the completion of our fourth hard fork, Spurious Dragon, and the subsequent state clearing process, the final steps in the two-hard-fork solution to the recent Ethereum denial of service attacks that slowed down the network in September and October…. Continue Reading →

Roundup #5

Development has steadily continued over the last month and a half as we approach the launch of Metropolis. Over a series of core dev calls over the last few months, we have specified and finalized the EIPs for Metropolis, and… Continue Reading →

On of Friday, July 28, 2017, forty-four members of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), including the Ethereum Foundation, voted to appeal the decision to publish  Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) as a W3C Recommendation. The Foundation believes EME should not be… Continue Reading →

> Just as a side note, as I argued before, the DAO collapse and the ensuing hard fork was a natural experiment that delivered a triumph to Williamsonian contracting and a decisive blow to Hartian contracting, ironically just months before… Continue Reading →

Maybe slightly; but I don’t see that being too big an issue, especially since under normal…

> What I find so intriguing about crypto is that it offers commitment devices that are built from the viewpoint of the action (the economic transaction), and not from the viewpoint of the actor (the economic agent). This seems interesting, but… Continue Reading →

Usually in economics the word “commitment” refers to promises that are *forward-facing*, something like “I put myself in a position such that either I later do X or I lose $YYY”. This is interesting because I actually see blockchains as… Continue Reading →

Regarding Bitcoin and Ethereum dev and client decentralization, I think those four graphs miss two points: Many of the so-called “alternative Bitcoin clients” are in fact forks of the same codebase as Bitcoin Core, whereas all Ethereum implementations have fully separate… Continue Reading →
