Litecoin is a great coin with a simple product design, excellent track record, and excellent distribution.Full review
Most of today’s Internet is built on an economic model (advertising) that is inimical to the rights and the mental resources of the users, and that exerts a corrosive influence on our society’s economy and our political discourse. BAT is an audacious attempt to disrupt that entire economic basis and replace it with something better.Full review
Good progress on more space-efficient range proofs in Monero: https://getmonero.org/2017/12/07/Monero-Compatible-Bulletproofs.htmlFull review
Bulletproofs will also hopefully lead to other improvements in Monero and elsewhere.
A quick reminder that it’s November 2018 and IOTA *still* depends on a centralized server to keep their network from forking.Full review
It’s pretty amazing that we’re seeing bugs only in "third-party code" and not flaws in core elements of the Ethereum protocols and clients. That’s an amazing accomplishment.Full review
EOS is struggling now because they chose to do token/coin voting, and all those tokens are held in exchanges (or holders are apathetic). As some of the Bitcoin Core devs pointed out, this solution has come up and been dismissed many times. Why didn’t EOS know this?Full review
Transaction demand is to some extent a function of the number of people simply holding the currency. Even if my main use case is holding, I’m still going to have to enter and leave the network.
This wouldn’t matter much if Bitcoin had loads of on-chain capacity, but the current capacity limits (likely to hold for a while) will turn even modest global adoption — just by people who do the minimum transacting possible — into a capacity problem.Full review
Major changes [to GUSD] such as issuing a lot of new GUSDs or changing the contract required both multisig and timelock. Very nice!Full review
The core idea of Tezos — formalized and automated governance of a decentralized protocol—is a deeply powerful idea, and I want to see it implemented and deployed in the hopes that it can greatly help humanity.Full review
If I were doing it all over again (like Grin is), I would probably choose just a fixed inflation rate, i.e., 1 ZEC per block from the genesis block until the end time. Grin has chosen that, and I'm envious of the simplicity.Full review
I was already a huge Cosmos fan, largely because of their thorough dev and launch process to mainnet. The way they seem to be managing this [vulnerability] further encourages me....An open system like this with a few battle-scars feels more trustworthy to me than one which is apparently flawless. “Flawless” to me indicates either that it hasn't really been tested or that the devs covered it up.Full review
Monero had one bug that happened to be detectable. But this is not the rule, it was a lucky break. The complexity will go up as they try to reduce transaction sizes (using more Bulletproofs) and increase the number of mixins to reasonable values.Full review
The faster Tether vaporizes and sinks into the sea, the faster we can move on to the next massive cryptocurrency scam — which the same people will defend to the hilt even as it destroys the people who trust them.Full review
