1/ Imagine:

A perfect #DEX world where you set limit orders & walk away confident in the #dapp's automation and execution of trades.

Imagine if you didn't need to sit in front of the screen to remove liquidity manually, or wait for orders to be filled.🤯

Sounds magical❓💫
2/ Imagine:

➡️BOTs cannot touch your trades.
➡️No slippage or swap fees to be paid.
➡️No requirement to touch your #ETH investment to cover gas fees.

Is this too good to be true in the current #DEX space? <a href="https://www.freepik.com/photos/girl-thinking&q
3/ Now, listen 👂

We are firm believers in blockchain and decentralization but we also felt the pinch when placing #decentralized trades.

Like we were being robbed of our #crypto value when placing trades (BOT attack, slippage, swap fees etc)

So we got to work...😤

Let´s talk about @Kiltprotocol $KILT, an open source BC protocol for issuing decentralized identifiers and verifiable credentials who intends to become the identity solution for Web 3.0 Currently running in #Kusama plans to get a Parachain slot in #Polkadot.

1/14
$KILT is a decentralized blockchain protocol for issuing self-sovereign, anonymous and verifiable credentials, enabling trust market business models in Web 3. KILT’s mission is to return control over personal data to its owner, restoring privacy to the individual.

Internet users need to register for using services. If those services become successful, they accumulate millions of logins and often collect data on users. This leads to three major problems:

1. The data silos are honeypots for hackers and thus a high security risk.

1/15 GM anon, we hope you didn't get rekt by the recent market events 😭 - we are back with some 🔝 alpha: earn NFTs 🖼️, Token rewards 🤑 and maybe even #airdrops 🪂 on @arbitrum

🧵👇 Image
@arbitrum 2/15 Last few days showed us that #decentralization IS important. The recent narrative of scalable but affordable alt #L1 blockchains is now under question. Now comes the time for a better solution - #L222 on top of the arguably most secure L1, @ethereum Image
@arbitrum @ethereum 3/15 Assume by now you've heard about the upcoming #ArbitrumOdyssey? This 🧵 will drop some alpha about it 🤫 that not many are talking about yet. Read on if you want to find additional ways to earn and get yourself some potential rewards 🤑 Image

It's only natural: much of the rhetoric and stated goals of the people behind these technologies intersect with my longstanding causes, like access to cryptography and decentralized communities (what we used to call #P2P). 3/

Every time I read things like this, I think “those poor $SHEN holding suckers bear all the risk.” Another #crypto #cardano #DeFi #djed #thread: 1 / 🧵
Why would someone buy $SHEN and hold those downside risks? The attitude in some #Cardano circles must be “Oh well they’re all rich dudes - VCs and corporations - with unlimited wealth. Fu*k ‘em and stick ‘em with the losses.” 2/🧵
That’s wrongheaded. The reason to buy $SHEN is that $SHEN holders get any $ADA gains from $DJED buyers. People who buy and use $DJED are giving free $ADA loans to $SHEN holders. 3/🧵

(1/6)💪It is time to build a decentralized reserve dedicated to the blockchain industry.

🚀The #TRON network is now taking a step further to found the TRON DAO Reserve, the #blockchain industry’s first decentralized reserve. #TRONDAOReserve
(2/6)⚒️#Blockchain today is undergoing a laissez-faire market of more than $1 trillion. With no constraint from macroprudential regulation, it will only end up damaging crypto stakeholders’ interests.

🙌The time has come for a decentralized reserve.

🧵 After days of digesting .@punk6529’s insights w/ .@RaoulGMI on .@RealVision, I found it valuable to share a thread with some takeaways… 👇
.@punk6529's big “AHA! moment” emerged since he realized that all modern society runs on database.

#Bitcoin is a deep idea in the social context. It allowed people who don’t know and trust each other, to agree on a set of facts and information that’s not stored in a database...
Furthermore, big data and machine learning, tend to be centralized.

Plus, we have economies of scope, scale, and data, and all of these lead to centralization… 🧐

1/ 🎯 DAO Vulnerabilities Report: Exploring & Mapping Lido Governance

The results of a resilience assessment of @LidoFinance liquid #ETH staking protocol governance.

🧵 A TL;DR tweet thread of the findings, relevant to all in #Web3 & #DAOs

medium.com/block-science/…
2/ Based on @kelsiemvn's #DAO vulnerabilities piece, @LidoFinance asked us to undertake a governance assessment of its DAO.

🚨Massive droppage of Alpha detected🚨

in today's podcast between @APompliano and @stablekwon!

$BTC x $LUNA will kickstart the next paradigm shift in crypto🤝

Missed it? Don't worry, here's a quick summary. A short thread🧵
1/ What was the idea behind starting @terra_money ?

Stablecoins make up 80% of crypto trading volume👀.

Current gen stablecoins are however either centralized or based on leverage and thus not scaleable.

@terra_money is a new way to scale stablecoins, using an algorithm.
2/ How does this algorithm secure the peg?

The $LUNA token absorbs volatility in price demand💡

- $UST above peg = $1 of $LUNA can be burned to mint UST, increasing $UST supply .

- $UST below peg = $UST can be burned to receive $ 1 of $LUNA , decreasing $UST supply.

1/ I just read #KuCoin's 2021 Annual Report and 2022 Forecast on the Crypto Industry.

Here are my key takeaways, a thread. 🧵

Lets go! 👇👇👇

#DeFI / #NFT / #DAO / #Stablescoins / #Memecoins / #Risks Image
2/ #BTC and #ETH remain the undisputed market leaders.

🔸BTC was the best performing major asset in 2021
🔹ETH has also been gaining traction as a store of value

ETH becoming deflationary is a big change (pictured).

More on ETH next 👇 Image
3/ #ETH Gas Fees

ETH network occupancy rate was over 98% in 2021 (pictured)!

This is close to its resource critical point leading to high gas fees / the scaling problem.

#DeFI ecosystem is limited by the performance of ETH.

ETH2.0 is expected in 2022. Next, #shitcoins 👇 Image

1/ Why is #blockchain scaling so controversial? From the #blocksizewars to #Alt L1s and #rollups.

Is it really that hard?!

🧵 time...
2/ Blockchains like #Bitcoin and #Ethereum strive for maximum #decentralization and #censorship-resistance while remaining totally open and inclusive networks. However, they also want to scale to accommodate billions of users.
3/ As they stand right now, their limited capacity to process transactions at the base layer (~7 and ~20 TPS, respectively) are in direct opposition to achieving that goal.

The question is “What is the best method of scaling a blockchain?” 🧐

As a term, the word 'Metaverse’ was coined over thirty years ago, but it is only now being brought to mass public awareness, due in no small part to #Facebook’s recent name change.

But what exactly is the #Metaverse, how did we get here, and why does it matter? 👇

1/18
Simply speaking, the #Metaverse is an online realm in which you can interact with people or products using your digital identity, better known as your #avatar. In the Metaverse, you will be able to shop, use #streaming services, play games, hang out with friends, and more.

2/18
But what's so new about this? The difference that the #Metaverse is bringing lies in how we access this digital realm. Currently, that’s through a #Web2 interface. This means that we have to use multiple access points (usually email addresses) to access different services.

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

The first @OpenWebFoundry event of the year was PACKED full of updates and information on the biggest projects building on @ArweaveTeam

Recording 👉

I have extracted some of the highlights from @al_koii's presentation of @KoiiNetwork in a🧵.. enjoy!
1/ The OWF presentation started with a brief overview of @KoiiNetwork. Founder @al_koii explained that while the world is full of people the attention they have available is actually very limited, making it the scarcest resource in the world.
2/ @KoiiNetwork is working to create a world where creators create content and mine $KOII tokens based on the amount of attention their content receives. That attention is then verified cryptographically through the PoRT (Proofs of Real Traffic) consensus mechanism. Image

“BUT THERE ARE NO NFTS ON #BITCOIN"

NFTs were invented on Bitcoin (👉Colored Coins) to show non-fungibility & digital authenticity can be achieved

But few understand these traits are not enforced on decentralized-in-name-only platforms such as OpenSea 🤫

🧵
Originality in the digital realm is hard to discern but this is exactly what NFTs are supposedly selling - verifiable, immutable, monetizable originality

Cool, but that sales pitch rests on the assumption that NFTs live on a platform that is secure & operationally sound, right?
OpenSea can’t just shut down at random, right?

OH WELL WHAT HAPPENED HERE?

(1/33) I wanted to share my thoughts on the implications of Artificial wombs and Social child-rearing.
(2/33) The artificial womb will arguably be the most promising and revolutionary technology in the next 20 years. It may first emerge as a complementary solution to the existing human system like the brain-computer interface.
(3/33) While brain-computer interfaces are designed to help the disabled with person-computer communication, artificial wombs end premature babies' deaths. Both technologies will eventually lead to a new society, a new future, and new possibilities.

In addition to the issues @Suzi3D points out, it's important to highlight a few differences that separate the arch + design of Panquake.com from networks like GETTER and Parler. Short thread.
First, we're taking #decentralization seriously. Panquake.com conversations are committed to a blockchain record which will be shared around the world. Users on the network will communicate and verify each other using peer-to-peer methods and strong encryption.
Second, the Panquake.com network is built upon #respect and empowerment for users. We're making sure your data lives on your device(s), and don't collect or store the kind of sensitive information that has already been breached from GETTR and Parler, not even email.

The last remaining puzzle piece is the removal of the Coordinator and our full #decentralization.

This is why we have IOTA 2.0, our leaderless consensus protocol. The Testnet has been running for months, with the next major upgrade around the corner.

v2.iota.org
With these components you can see how #IOTA leverages the unique architecture of the Tangle to build a fully decentralized, programmable multi-asset ledger

#IOTA is becoming a network of networks, securing and connecting decentralized economies through a feeless L1

#multichain
Our approach is similar to #Ethereum 2.0, #Polkadot, #Cosmos. It shows that these architectures are the only way to really scale DLT

#IOTA minimizes tradeoffs thanks to the Tangle (DAG). Feeless tokens on L1 and sharded #SmartContracts on L2 will enable us to scale to mainstream

Life is all about the journey and the people we share it with.

The 2021 rollercoaster with the usual ups and downs has seen a fundamental transformation of #IOTA, our direction and our ecosystem.

2021 Highlights & What to expect in 2022 👇

#Shimmer #Assembly
We started 2021 with "A New Dawn" - the start of IOTAs transformation.

The #Chrysalis mainnet upgrade has introduced a complete rewrite of #IOTA, with only the Tangle (DAG) remaining.

✅ UTXO
✅ EdDSA
✅ Firefly
#Rust and #Go only
...much more

blog.iota.org/iota-chrysalis…
The #Chrysalis upgrade was a big success, with 90% of the #IOTA supply fully migrated (more than $3.5b)

With this upgrade, we began to broaden our vision by introducing exciting new utility features on L1 and L2, and accelerate the transition to IOTA 2.0 (Full Decentralization).

Why is decentralized Indexing important for the ecosystem?

🧵(thread)🧵
1/ Let's start by defining indexing. According to Investopedia, indexing is the practice of compiling economic data into a single metric or comparing data to such a metric.
2/ If indexing is just compiling data and showing it to users, why can't protocols do it themselves? Well, they can, but it eats up a lot of resources and takes a lot of time to go through the process and automate it efficiently.
