  • Jameson Lopp on NEO Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    And yet NEO still maintains an ~$8B valuation despite proof that it's not even fault tolerant to a single consensus node failing, much less tolerant to Byzantine actors... not sure if the market is irrational or just ignorant.

  • Jameson Lopp on New Economy Movement Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    I've never heard a single person talk about NEM. I'm extremely skeptical that it's actually valued at a billion dollars.

  • Jameson Lopp on Ethereum Classic Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    Ethereum Classic has <1% of Ethereum Project's hashing power, and, while there are plenty of sellers, no one's buying.

    Ethereum is sucking the wind out of every other coin's sales.

  • Jameson Lopp on IOTA Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    IOTA is amazingly bad. I find it hard to believe it's valued at billions of dollars. I guess they have great marketing or something. I never got into it because I looked at their Java reference implementation and found it to be a mess.

  • Jameson Lopp on Bitcoin Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    When humans change the way we think about the world we are able to invent more powerful types of organizations. Bitcoin is a breakthrough in self organization - now the rest of the world just needs to update its mental models to take advantage of it.

  • Jameson Lopp on Dogecoin Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    I laughed when I initially heard about Dogecoin, but the Dogecoin community has done more in a month than Litecoin has in years. Impressive.

  • Arianna Simpson on Bitcoin Managing Director of Autonomous Partners

    The more new chains launch with massive issues (including some with huge budgets) the more impressive it is that bitcoin has never had any similar catastrophes, over a much longer period.

  • Jameson Lopp on Beam Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    If you're interested in cutting edge cypherpunk protocols you should be keeping an eye on Grin and Beam. . . If the tech works then it ought to be a pretty good way to make private payments.

  • Arianna Simpson on Numerai Managing Director of Autonomous Partners

    Earlier this month, Numerai announced Erasure Quant. I think it has the potential to meaningfully impact how hedge funds work, so it's worth highlighting:

    Quant is the first dapp built on Erasure (Numerai's protocol), which will launch later this year. The basic idea is simple: it's a stock picking tournament that allows you to make provable point-in-time stock predictions.

    The fact that these are provable (meaning you can demonstrate you made the prediction in advance) is new. This is fucking rad! There is currently no good way to do this.....On that note, Erasure is just the first of many dapps that can be built on Erasure ––and while Numerai has its own hedge fund that will trade based on these signals, eventually this will become an open market for data and predictions.

  • Jameson Lopp on Libra Infrastructure Engineer at Casa

    Libra sounds fairly well designed as a permissioned system, but it is facing quite a few long-term challenges. Oh, and it's not a blockchain.
