🧠 @THORChain_org's Decentralized Liquidity Network creates opportunities for businesses / entrepreneurs / devs

The team is focused on the core swap tech and #ASGARDEX -- but that doesn't mean there isn't opportunity for others elsewhere in the meantime.
2) Any service which aims-to increase network utility via swaps will benefit will increase revenue for #THORNode operators, Liquidity Providers aka stakers -- and ultimately increase the value of $RUNE.
3) An example could be a @venmo style peer-to-peer payment solution, crafted in a way where the service can branch itself out to a variety of integrations, think @Shopify @magento @whmcs @opencart @PrestaShop @drupalcommerce @Ubercart @WordPress @ZenCart

@forex_crypt Hi there, I just needed to share some facts from the scammer called @theforexcrypt who pretends to be honest. Earlier this evening at 8pm he was following a single person who was the fake profile he setup to lie & continue harassing me.
Later at 10.42pm he is again following no one again but is now tweeting out the profile 2 hours earlier he was following as me now.

This person, made this account themself. Lied and tried to tie my likeness to it then tweeted it out but as you can see we have been watching
This guy is a liar, a cheat & has numerous issues that he needs urgent help with I fear

He calls me dangerous but he sends out hundreds of tweets a day harassing me & many other people with his endless lies & fraud

It's my strong advice that anyone left following him leave now.

I have a idea based on @Marble_cards.

Stable NFTs. Remembers stablecoins, but it haves its own properties.

Somewhat like @meTokens, every NFT should be backed by collateral, but always having a fixed intrinsic value + market value.

(thread)
2/

Not only collateral, but all stableNFTs should be backed by a physical counterpart! 🙅

Intrinsic value + market value. 🤯

The intrinsic value is made by the costs of producing the physical counterpart. All physical NFTs haves a QR code and contract address. 🏀🏷
3/

The intrinsic value of a stableNFT doesn't changes (like DAI) and always is collateralized. 🦄

If the physical counterpart is changed/upgraded (eg. printing new owner address or having a healthier copy), the intrinsic value is increased also including these costs. 📈

I did not expect #Maker to add #LINK as collateral, but I'm also not surprised. It makes a whole lot of sense that, after #ETH and #DAI, LINK is the very next coin they want to add as THE collateral for the biggest ETH #stablecoin system. Here is why:
As collateral, you wan't something that is safe in the long run, that is not volatile and based on far fetched / high speculative value. You wan't something with high liquidity and a bit 'cash flow'. Unlike most ERC20, #Chainlink is not fueling new/different blockchains that
compete with Ethereum on the smart contract marketshare (which it has over 95% already). Chainlink does not compete with the Stablecoins where Tether alone has about 90% marketshare. Chainlink is a new 'thing', a new 'category' and serves the purpose of

1/ As disruptions from COVID continue, I wanted to share high level details about our approach and market position at @TheRealBlockFi - thread here is an excerpt from one of our weekly team meetings in March! 👇
2/ BlockFi's Approach: We do not intend to participate in a recession.
3/
- No immediate changes to our team / hiring plans / go forward budgets etc.
- We will develop contingency plans but expect that we will keep growing and they won't be needed
- How we manage through this will be a bellwether for how we will do once we enter the "new normal"

1/ Far too many self taught experts are calling for #Crypto to save us from the current worldwide economic downturn. However, I consider this as nothing more than a pipe dream. Here are my reasons why.

#1 Crypto has zero investor protection
2/ Crypto markets are still the Wild West. Exchanges perform 0 risk assessment before letting people do 100x leveraged trades. There are no circuit breakers. No ban on wash trading, spoofing & exchanges trading against their own customers.
A few hedge funds may dabble in crypto
3/ But such a market isn’t going to make old money pull out from traditional markets & go all in on crypto

#2: None of the projects are ready for prime time

As much as crypto fanatics hate to admit this, it’s the truth. #BTC and #ETH aren’t scalable & are nothing more than PoCs

#Cardano

@IOHK_Charles recently announced the launch of their #Shelley mainnet moving ahead from their #Byron era. Considered the most scientific of all #DLTs, Cardano took a little around 18 months to reach this far.
#Stellar

#IoT solution @NodleTeam recently made the switch from @StellarOrg to @ParityTech's #substrate.

#Top10 #cryptocurrencies [by #MarketVolume] on the 3rd of April, 2020 according to Dxone Exchange.
Number 10:

#OKB token by @OKEx

It is an #ERC20 token with a market cap of 1,221 Million #USD. It's key utility is discounts on #trading fees, voting rights, ability to invest in #incubated projects and #sharing_revenue.

(Source: cryptobriefing.com/what-is-ok-exc…) via @crypto_briefing
Number 9:

#BNB by @binance

@cz_binance's brainchild, the BNB #token powers everything in the Binance ecosystem. What was once just a #cryptocoin for exchange is a full-fledged #Ethereum competitor and sits at 1,917 Million USD market cap

1/ Just wanted to state the obvious, even though I think the majority has no clue whats going on. #Finance, #Business, #Banks, the #economy as we know it has finally collapsed, well the governments might be able to hold it out a little more because most people are so blind.
2/ While Governments are spreading massive fear about #coronavirus, there are worse things happening behind the scenes. Don’t get me wrong, Corona is bad. They always use fear to control us when they lose control, it makes us think irrational, and more reliant to the governments.
3/ The global system collapse has already started. Ive been calling for a system collapse for a decade, now its finally unraveling. People always laugh it off, call me crazy and what not. Presented this for a huge company over a year ago called WESTCON Yards – response was laughs

1) 🧠 How to strengthen #crypto #BTC #ETH #BEP #BNB

One weakness of the market is driven by its LOW LIQUIDITY, and it's imperative that we aim for growth of a decentralized liquidity network, allowing for ALL #BTC #ETH #BNB #BEP hodlers to participate as automated market makers.
2) Allowing them to earn on their hodlings -- which currently centralized exchanges do not support.

If we can people to aggregate the dormant #BTC #ETH #BNB #BEP tokens sitting on cold storage devices into decentralized liquidity networks, perhaps we can develop more strength.
3) It would strengthen #cryptos against whale manipulation / over-leveraged traders (which causes price swings, which leads to panic and irrational trades).

Another great discussion initiated by @lex_node based on a valuable piece on @coindesk written by @Frances_Coppola. As with many threads on Twitter, the tone quickly gets ... acerbic but it is a useful starting point to make a couple of important observations in both directions.
2/ As comments in the thread make clear, Coppola is focusing on “tokenizing” fungible and tangible assets. Her (spot on) point is that it is absurd to think that “blockchain“ can fix the trust issue when it comes to tangible IRL assets. However, I want to get to a deeper point.
3/ I spend quite a lot of time debating what is, and what is not a “security“. However, one thing is clear: in almost all cases, when you create a financial instrument backed by a pool of physical assets, under US law you have created a security.

Are you pining away your weekend wishing you had more Crypto Experts and Forex Queens in your life? This botnet might be right up your alley. #SundaySpam

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We found a network of 58 accounts with names consisting of "cryptoexp" or "fxqueen" followed by a series of numbers. This network began life using its own custom automation software (cryptwizard), which it replaced with Twuffer and Twittimer following a hiatus in late 2019.
What does this botnet do? Its mission appears to be to link Telegram channels related to cryptocurrency and forex trading; thus far 9852 of 10020 tweets (98.3%) link one of two channels, generally accompanied by hashtag spam.

I see the (#ETH) public chain private chain debate the same way as centralized/internal #oracles and decentralized oracles (#LINK). Companies started using private chains, as it's easier to test with, it's private from the competition and they have higher throughput right now.
Endgoal is still public chain. This is very clear and specifically confirmed by market leaders like #EY's Paul Brody recently again, #Gartner and #Capgemini. The real value of immutable ledger and end-to-end secure smart contracts lies with the open, decentralized way.
It just takes time till companies can/should use public chain. Privacy is one condition to be met before this happens for example.

Just as these companies test around with private #ethereum chains, they test around with private/centralized smart oracles.

Controversial take: #ethereum/@ethereum needs more marketers MUCH more than it needs more engineers at this point.

Reasons in thread:
@ethereum 1 / There are loads of talented teams such as @prylabs working on #eth2. In fact there are multiple teams working on multiple clients.

However their progress is not widely known.
@ethereum 2/ #Eth 1.x technologies like optimistic rollups/zkrollups are also progressing very well, but due to lack of marketing efforts, this is not very well known either outside of the #ethereum community.

To all involved in #crypto and not, DO NOT ignore this tweet

I was introduced to #bitcoin and #ethereum 5 years ago.
I even wrote my thesis on tokenizing real assets onto the #blockchain.

All I have to say is #Tezos! See threads below

$xtz #btc #eth #xmr #xrp $trx $btc
1/ #Tezos , #xtz is a decentralized blockchain that governs itself and it establishes a true digital commonwealth.
While #ethereum, is undergoing two fork, $xtz is upgrading its protocol by using voting on the blockchain.
Currently this is the 5th successful upgrade, #Babylon
2/ #Tezos is the first production-scale multi billion dollar asset tokenization project on the #blockchain.
Currently over $5 billion of assets ready in the pipeline for Q1 to be tokenized on the #xtz blockchain.

1/ oh gosh, please forgive me, @mhass33 and I just started writing this [THREAD] and now its gotten out of control....
@mhass33 2/ Over a year ago I began professionally following Ethereum. I made lots of friends, saw how valuable community is. Traveled the world, tinkered with my own dApps, analysed countless projects for token economics. I thought it would be good to publish my notes. Brace yourself
@mhass33 3/ Ethereum gets a bad rap in the crypto market today, its much more fun to hate it then appreciate what has been built and what can be built

While @ work

Decided to take a Intro to Portfolio Risk Management in Python @DataCamp

Gonna apply the lessons to #Bitcoin price from Nov 2014 onwards /thread
@DataCamp General Bitcoin data so far:

Daily average return - 0.2406%

Implied average annualized return - 140.4271%

Standard deviation (volatility measure) - 3.9660

Graph below shows the daily return % on the x-axis plotted against the number of its occurrences on the y-axis $BTC
@DataCamp Does #Bitcoin follow a normal distribution?

For that we will need to measure the tilt of the distribution (Skewness) and the probability of outliers (Kurtosis)

Skewness - 0.2085

Kurtosis - 6.5293

This suggests that the is a greater probability of outliers & +ve returns

Think about it. Ripple has one company running in Luxembourg which is called Ripple Luxembourg S.A.
For the year ended 2018 Ripple Luxembourg S.A. reported EUR 529,630.89 in total assets and has a net equity of EUR 91,220.09. The loss for the year was EUR 7,730.26.
@digitalassetbuy @bgarlinghouse @chrislarsensf @Ripple 2 of 5
Is this entity of any significance to the Luxembourg economy? The local comer shop make more profit and has more assets on the balance sheet; never the less the Luxembourg Finance Minister is travelling to San Francisco to meet with this very own company?

What is wrong in this picture? This does not make sense, and if something doesn’t make sense, then we most certainly don’t know the full picture. If people would pay more attention, then the price would go nuts of pure speculation.

1/ I can't believe it's been this 3 years already. the @uport_me team won a prize after launching the first version of our Self Sovereign Identity wallet at DevCon2 on #ethereum complete with social recovery using proxy contracts, wallet connect like QR codes and gas funding.
2/ Our focus is still on Self Sovereign Identity for #ethereum, but we've learnt so much since our first experiment back then.

Here is a diagram of our original architecture...
3/ Most importantly the key to safely build #identity on a blockchain is to actually use as the #blockchain as little as possible.

Ideally a good identity solution for blockchain applications provides an off-chain method of linking together on-chain interactions.

[THREAD] This past weekend I was lucky enough to have been a judge at @ETHBoston. As an investor in the space, here are some of my top takeaways, trends to watch, and favorite projects from the hackathon.
2/First, some context. Like other @ETHGlobal events, ETHBoston was well-attended, with over 400 hackers in attendance. Participants had a wide range of #Ethereum experience and traveled from all over the world to attend the event (stats below).
3/At the end of the weekend, 55 projects were submitted to judges. Of those, 6 projects were selected as finalists and they presented to the entire hackathon audience.
