(1/19) Crypto 101: Wallets

What actually is @MetaMask? Is my $ETH inside my @Ledger? Why does everything involving crypto have to use a wallet?

A very high level discussion of #cryptography and #smartcontracts
(2/19) Do you ever wonder why this whole thing is called “Cryptocurrency?”

There’s a lot of things Satoshi gave us, but critical to everything are the properties of cryptography.
(3/19) Number Theory was the hardest class I’ve ever taken. Just trust me, the “Operation” section of this Wikipedia page mathematically proves this truth of cryptography:

You can create private messages between two parties over a public network.…

#Blockchain space has seen a lot of progress in the past decade.

But its goal to be a decentralized financial platform, empowering billions of people is not yet a reality

But there is one piece of tech that could scale blockchains to achieve this

Let's talk about zk-Proof 🧵👇 Image
zk-Proof (ZKP) is a cryptographic technique which was proposed by MIT researchers—Silvio Micali, Shafi Goldwasser, and Charles Rackoff—in the 1980s.

Micali along with Goldwasser later received the “Turing award” for their outstanding contributions in the field of #cryptography. Image
So what is a zero-knowledge proof?

It is a cryptographic technique

- where one party (The Prover) can prove that a specific statement is true to the other party (The Verifier)
- without disclosing any additional information
- apart from the fact that the statement is true

1/ I get often asked by people which #books they should read to get a good understanding of #crypto and #Bitcoin. While there are great books out there, the most striking book I read in the past months was about the #Lightning Network, namely “Mastering the Lightning Network”. Image
2/ Authors are @aantonop @roasbeef @renepickhardt. It is a very detailed book with more than 420 pages. This depth is necessary to truly understand how the Lightning Network works.
3/ Why is this book so great?

- It united both technical aspects as well as provides a general understanding of the Lighting Network
- It is a perfect fit for people that have a good understanding of Bitcoin and are #tech-savvy. But no worries: you don’t need to be a developer

Ppl fundamentally don't understand what is #crypto #defi #nfts, what's revolutionary about them, and why they exist.

Elaborating on @Wonderland_fi @danielesesta @0xSifu Scandal.

1/ Now, I understand that you're scared, cuz that's your money & it's totally normal to be emotional.

But emotions and money don't work well together, if they work together at all.

A 99% of the rich are emotionless shits, &never care about anyone and anything except themselves
2/ That's exactly why we built all these #dApps, #DAOs, protocols, blockchains, communities, and networks. That's why we fight for #privacy & #security, for end-to-end #encryption. That's why we build on top of #mathematics and #cryptography. That's why multi-sig exist.

Most #cryptocurrency exchange owners and #newschannels in #India seem to be pretty much clueless about what the exact definition of a private cryptocurrency is.

Thread continued👇
This confusion and chaos has been driven by the recent #hysteria about the government apparently confused whether to do a #cryptoban or #regulatecrypto.
All those news articles that sprung up about the #fakeban, initially were based upon this generic understanding that all #cryptocurrencies are private in nature.

1/ Yes, #Academic reasoning of value proposition. I have over 11+ years as an academic & professor. Most academics are good at analyzing & assessing things, as to building #DisruptiveTechnology The hungriest & most talented #entrepreneurs who designed from 1st Principles $eGLD ⚡️
2/ They have sold public that somehow you can have #Academics analyze something that has NEVER been done before. The very premise of value proposition is faulty at its core. $eGLD & $ADA You don’t know what you don’t know in #DisruptiveTechnology that is what makes it disruptive
3/ Many people don’t even understand what the #DisruptiveTechnological cycle looks like, behaves like or that this is what they are investing in. #CriticalThinking has all been lost among some. The level of comfort & deception is powerful. $ADA will do well but any one believing

🕵️ Introducing the building blocks of private, programmable #Web3 applications 🕵️: Aleo's zk primitives

Aleo’s mission is to enable developers to build truly private applications. Our approach is based on zero knowledge #cryptography (ZK in short). 1/8…
👀 ZK allows parties on a #decentralized network to prove knowledge of some information without revealing the underlying facts that make it true. 2/8
The ability to prove knowledge without revealing it:

🔍 Enhances privacy
🔒 Increases security

Following our thread on the work of a Challenger in Proof-of-Coverage (PoC), it’s only fair we take a look at the Challengees who are key to successfully transferring packets, completing PoC challenges and earning $HNT!
The role of the Challengee is to prove to the Challenger that they are actually creating network coverage that #LongFi devices can use. For successfully responding to these challenges, the Challengee is rewarded in newly minted $HNT.
Challengees receive encrypted multi-layer packets wirelessly, via RF. Each layer of the packet is encrypted for specific Challengees in a sequential path. When a Challengee receives a packet and can decrypt it, they send their proof back to the Challenger via the #p2p network.

@CustCarptry I don't see the causation as a political play. This is coincidental fuckery that has built an excellent framework for the subsequent political plays that will be formed on top of it. Not everything begins as conspiracy, but conspiracy begins from everything.
@CustCarptry Is there manipulation? Of course. 1000 fold, from both sides. (Again with the sides bullshit *fuck political parties*).

We will see many precedents set this year, many of which could set a bad course for the future of the country if we are not careful.
@CustCarptry This is a time when we must step back and look at the bigger picture. If we each stay in our lane with our head down and a closed mind,no matter how hard we fight, we will ALL FAIL. We have to unite. If we don't, destruction, lies, and chaos wins.

@josemariairujo @el_pais @EmbajadaEcuUK 3. it's crucial #UCGlobal and the #USintelligence are accountable not just because the espionage ops against are appalling, but because it's crucial to understand to what extent #cryptography protected our materials and information from our sources
