1/ Here is the @crypto_voices 2019 Q2 release on the global monetary base. This is the only comparable money supply with Bitcoin's 21 million. #Bitcoin is currently the 🔥11th largest money in the world. To dig deeper on what it all means, follow on below. This is installment #5.
2/ Gold & silver is base money of the past. Government fiat is base money today. It comprises both physical cash… and a digital cash component! Bitcoin may be base money of the future. Before we get to the charts, it's important to clarify a few common misconceptions in money.
3/ The first is everyone looking to value Bitcoin always jumps to the "narrow" or "broad" money supplies (M1/M2/M3). This is incorrect. The reason is those money supplies represent "claims" on something else. What is that something else? Answer: the base money supply!!

PART TWO

22/ Here I focus on an exploration of common attack vectors inherent in blockchains, & what solution(s) can combat them (to the best of my knowledge). Will use project-specific examples to keep this as tangible as possible.

For a recap of Part One, see below👇
23/ Some people have asked about hybrid PoW/PoS - I'm going to hold off on that for this Part Two to stay on course, but will touch on this in an appendix after Part Three.
24/ First up: Sybil attack. This seems to be tossed around pretty loosely on #cryptotwitter. This is a type of attack seen in p2p networks in which a node in a network operates multiple identities actively at once & undermines/subverts the authority/power in reputation systems.

1/ !!!THREAD!!!
My notes on Craig S Wright’s hearing held in West Palm Beach court house on June 28, 2019 $btc #cryptotwitter
2/ Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, I am not a native English speaker, I am not an engineer. But I am deeply in love with crypto and our community. Here are the notes I took during cross-examination, put into one thread. I didn’t have access to Exhibits.
3/ From start CSW was playing a victim and a good guy that “respects the law.” He cried a couple times, he mentioned having a master degree in law and getting PhD in it, he talked about religion and his soul.

WHY @wavesplatform $WAVES should be on your radar and why I believe that it is one of the largest and the shiniest #gem on a #cryptomarket?

(0/11)
1) Huge amount of #BTC (30k?)from ICO which are big financial cushion for such a large company. Hardly anyone knows, but they also rised about 140 m USD from private company in Dec 2018.
Even if the bear market will stay 5 more years they have enough money to survive.

(1/11)
2) @sasha35625 is great leader. His marketing skills along with great #waves technology are one of the most important factors why i will be hodling $waves to the end of the world and one more day.

Blockchain holy grails. If you do any of these, you win the level.

- Dex with liquidity (chortle).

- Cross-platform dex where you can, let’s put it this way, trade Ethereum for STEEM.

- Identity accepted across the blockchain space.

- ZK proofs for general computations.
- Tokenization platform for art which opens up the digital art markets.
- DAO that can make progress without value capture. (More discussion needed.)

- Quant model for valuation of any token type, that predicts prices.

- 1000 transactions per second... worth of customer demand, not platform supply.

0/ 🔷 We've got a 20-part daily recap coming in hot!

I get it. It's hard to stay in-the-know with so much happening in the crypto space. Let me help you. Here's what you ought to know - all in one place!
1/ 🔥 Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey sent #CryptoTwitter into overdrive when he tweeted "Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designed to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem." @SqCrypto launched, too!
2/ 🔦 @KuCoinCom [ $KCS ] unveiled KuCoin Spotlight, an investment channel aiming "to assist blockchain projects in raising the needed funds, attracting market attention and improving industrial influence." First Spotlight project announced within a week. kucoin.com/news/en-introd…

#BitcoinTwitter and #CryptoTwitter! Square is hiring 3-4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full-time on open source contributions to the bitcoin/crypto ecosystem. Work from anywhere, report directly to me, and we can even pay you in bitcoin! Introducing @SqCrypto. Why?
Last week I was considering my hack week project, and asked @brockm: “what is the most impactful thing we could do for the bitcoin community?” His answer was simple: “pay people to make the broader crypto ecosystem better.” This resonated with me immediately, so we’re doing it.
This will be Square’s first open source initiative independent of our business objectives. These folks will focus entirely on what’s best for the crypto community and individual economic empowerment, not on Square’s commercial interests. All resulting work will be open and free.

Anyone else feel like @twitter’s going through a social revival?
Feel like lots of people are outgrowing the other social medias, or becoming wary of the data gathered & superficial culture, but simple little @twitter keeps chugging along.
The question goes beyond #cryptotwitter (which has 📉 w/ the market), and more to the number of people finding real use in it and pulled to consume or engage.

1/ The last few days on #cryptotwitter have been full of interesting conversation & I’ve learned a lot, including new perspective on what @eric_lombrozo called “#BitcoinMinimalism.”
@eric_lombrozo 2/ As many have pointed out, diversity of thought and open dialogue is critical for the natural selection of ideas within #crypto.
@eric_lombrozo 3/ But *how we debate* is just as important as *what we debate,* as this too defines #crypto’s culture and affects a newcomer’s decision to join us.

If you were in #crypto before it was called “crypto,” chances are you got your start as a #Bitcoin nut.
People diverged from there:

- Some stuck to only #Bitcoin (maximalists)
- Some ventured a bit and came to love a few other #cryptoassets (mostmalists)
- Some ventured to explore the full world of programmable value, often with #Ethereum as the gateway (polycoiners)
What’s fascinating to me is #mostmalists and #polycoiners largely all still love Bitcoin as an economic and technological system, even though many have had falling-outs maximalists.

0/ Having trouble staying on top of all the latest in the world of #crypto and #blockchain? I've got you covered. Well, at least for the last 24 hours or so 💁‍♂️

Let's get this thread going shall we.
1/ 📝 @DPRating published the September edition of its #GitHub Audit, rating more than 200 #crypto and #blockchain projects.

Teams that ranked disproportionately well included @Raiden_Network [ $RDN ], @NulsService [ $NULS ], @ParticlProject [ $PART ], and @POANetwork [ $POA ].
2/ ♻️ @PowerLedger_io [ $POWR ] introduced Asset Germination Events (AGEs), furthering the utility of its native #crypto token.

AGEs will allow people to invest in and co-own energy assets. More details to come via a Friday AMA. medium.com/power-ledger/p…

0.0/ A lot of #crypto news today from the securities enforcement world:

- DOJ goes to trial on ICO-related securities fraud charges
- SEC charges broker-dealer & hedge fund with securities violations
- FINRA charges broker with fraud & dealing unregistered securities

Thread.
1.0/ Let's start with DOJ. Today's news relates to a federal criminal case in the Eastern District of New York: United States v. Maksim Zaslavskiy.

Zaslavskiy was charged in November 2017 on three counts of securities fraud in connection with two ICOs: "REcoin" and "DRC."
1.1/ DOJ says Zaslavskiy lied to investors when he sold these ICOs.

According to the indictment, he told investors that both coins were backed by real world assets: he allegedly claimed REcoin was backed by real estate & DRC was backed by diamonds.

0/ The SEC killed *all* of the pending derivative-backed #bitcoin ETFs today. Why did they do it, and what does it mean?

Thread.

1/ All eyes were on the SEC this week, as the final deadline to approve or reject the two ProShares bitcoin ETFs was tomorrow, August 23.

Most of us on #cryptotwitter were expecting the ETFs to be rejected.

2/ But we weren't expecting the SEC to also reject *seven* other derivative-backed ETFs proposed by GraniteShares & Direxion. Those ETFs weren't due for final decisions until September 15 and 21 respectively.

The only ETF left now is the VanEck/SolidX commodity-backed offering.

1/ Hey #CryptoTwitter, grab a glass of vino and come sit by the fire so we can discuss your narrow-minded views on FAT PROTOCOL THEORY.

See what I did there -- how I juxtaposed "narrow" with "fat"?

No?

Just shut up and drink your wine. 👇
2/ First, let's acknowledge it as a "theory" even though it wasn't clearly labelled as such.

A theory is just a plausible principle offered to explain phenomena.
3/ In Joel's case -- @jmonegro penned the original theory -- he was observing the phenomena that #Bitcoin and #Ethereum both had market caps that far exceeded the value of applications built on top of either protocol.

0/ Ross Ulbricht shouldn't spend the rest of his life in prison.

If you're wondering why his name keeps coming up on #cryptotwitter, please read this. It's long but important.

Thread.
1/ In 2011, Ross created Silk Road, a global marketplace to buy & sell goods, whether legal or not.

Silk Road was perhaps the first use case for #bitcoin: censorship-resistant internet money for an online market that governments badly wanted to censor.
2/ Silk Road hosted many things, including a book club that a lot of us #crypto people would've liked, but the prime attraction for many users was drugs.

By September 2013, Silk Road had thousands of drug listings, including for cocaine, heroin, and LSD.

0/ #Cryptotwitter sharpening its knives for @Ripple today. Plenty of good takes already on whether $XRP is a security, so let me tackle a different question: what happens next?

Spoiler: if you're wondering "when @bgarlinghouse perp walk," prepare to be disappointed.

Thread.
1/ First, keep in mind that the SEC's guidance yesterday is *not* the law. It's only the SEC's current (and non-binding) interpretation of the law -- an explainer for how the SEC will make charging decisions in the #crypto space.

sec.gov/news/speech/sp…
2/ Ultimately, what is or isn't a security will be determined by the courts through litigation, which is how we got the Howey test in the first place. Congress could also pass a clarifying statute and make our lives easier. (please support @coincenter)

Here's #HalFinney's back-of-the-envelope calculation from January 2009. Let's update that and turn it into a collective decision problem.
I'm starting with a bunch of simplifying assumptions:
1. The "ultimate payoff of world domination" is fixed at $10m per coin.
2. All-or-nothing scenario: world domination or bust. (I actually disagree with that.)
3. No interest rate or NPV accounting.
In that case we have a simple lottery. For one lottery ticket, you get a payoff of ε * $10M + (1-p) * 0, or simply $10M times ε. So what's your estimate for the world domination probability ε?
