If you are #newtocrypto & #web3, this threadđŸ§” should be just what you need to begin understanding the basics of #crypto, and why you should care:
So...What are #cryptocurrencies, and why should you care?! Image
At the heart of it, cryptocurrencies are digital currencies or assets that exist independently from governments or central banks. #Bitcoin is the first, and best known cryptocurrency.
Because of the underlying technology that cryptocurrencies are built upon, they give users the ability to transfer value & digital assets to other people without the need for an intermediary such as a bank. This is known as a peer-to-peer transaction.

#Ethereum Community often calls themselves #Decentralization maxis

But if we look at the real metrics

#Cardano is far ahead than #Ethereum on #Decentralization

Here are the reasons why #Cardano is the most decentralized PoS-based blockchain out theređŸ§”đŸ‘‡
#Decentralisation is the core ethos that gives meaning to the public #Blockchain space

Because it eliminates the need for trusted parties

#Bitcoin initiated this movement in the backdrop of the 2008 financial crisis

Resulted from the corrupt banks & lack of transparency
That's why #Decentralization is the one core principle

That no Layer 1 blockchain should compromise

Compromising on #Decentralization takes away the whole value proposition of public blockchains

Now let's move to the facts and metrics comparing #Ethereum and #Cardano

I.Premier petit #thread issu du #SĂ©minaireFrancoRusse qui s’est tenu les 21-24 novembre Ă  #Moscou sur les transformations financiĂšres induites par les sanctions et les mesures correctives adoptĂ©es par la #Russie.
II.Les volumes des opérations en USD et en Euro se sont fortement réduits tandis que celles dans les « autres monnaies » ont fortement augmenté.
III.En fĂ©vrier 2022 l’USD reprĂ©sentait 83% des opĂ©rations de change sur Moscou. Il ne reprĂ©sentait plus que 42% en octobre 2022. A cette date le #Yuan reprĂ©sentait 25% et les « autres monnaies » (la Roupie) 7%

If you missed it, Mark Cuban (@mcuban) dropped some NFT knowledge bombs on the @fullsend #Podcast.

As someone who was one of the first to create #streaming online, his #wisdom on emerging tech ecosystems is extremely relevant.

You can catch the snippet where he breaks down his perspective here:

Below I’ve captured a recap and my thoughts on how you can interpret and apply this knowledge đŸ§”
1ïžâƒŁÂ #NFTs are like the @Apple AppStore when it first launched.

Do you know what the highest ranking #paid app was in 2008?

What is Web3⁉
A threadđŸ§”

Web 2.0 + Decentralization = Web 3.0🔐

Before starting with what exactly Web3 is, let's talk about the previous generations of the Internet 🌐

#web3 #decentralisation #web2
2/15 Web 1.0: The Read-only web📚. In Web1 the users were the consumers of the content created by others.

Web 2.0: The read/write webđŸ“šâœđŸ» or Social web. In Web2 users are the creator as well as the consumers
3/15 While Web2.0 changed the whole perspective of the internet in many aspects it gave rise to some problems too.

Problems with Web 2.0❗
- 📍Centralized
- ⚠Single point of failure
- ❌Censored
- 🔐Security and Privacy

I've learned so much about #Bitcoin by following the right people here on Twitter, some of them happened to write some fantastic books.

So here are +60 books you should consider adding to your personal collection. 📙👇
Book 1:

A book that needs little introduction: The Bitcoin Standard by @saifedean. This book taught me what money is, why it has value & how it's evolved over time. It becomes clear that #Bitcoin should be the next step, & can't be stopped

Book 2:

The Price of Tomorrow: Why Deflation is the Key to an Abundant Future - @JeffBooth

It's a remarkable book, where Jeff explains how a monetary system is based on debt, is fighting a losing battle against deflation, caused by technology.

[THREAD, DEX] Vous utilisez certainement #Binance ou #Coinbase mais savez-vous que ce sont des exchanges centralisés aussi appelés des #CEX ?

Mais il y a aussi les #DEX, ces bourses d’échanges de cryptomonnaie dĂ©centralisĂ©s, ce qu’on appelle des DEX pour Dencentralised Exchange
Il existe plusieurs strates dans le niveau de dĂ©centralisation d’un protocole.

Pour utiliser la cryptomonnaie, vous pouvez vous satisfaire des exchanges centralisés et faire vos transactions sur #Binance. Blockchain Trilemma, Scalability Decentralization Security
Mais pour un usage avancĂ© de la #blockchain, vous aurez besoin des plateformes dĂ©centralisĂ©es afin de rĂ©aliser des opĂ©rations sur votre portefeuille, c’est ce qu’on appelle des #Dapps, les applications dĂ©centralisĂ©es.

đŸ§” THREAD N°18 : le trilemme de la #blockchain

Un nouveau thread sur la blockchain, un peu technique, mais qui est important pour bien comprendre les enjeux de cette technologie.

Le triangle d'or de la blockchain, thread du jour 👇 Image
1/ D'abord une description des 3 points du trilemme:

👉 #dĂ©centralisation : la blockchain, et en particulier le rĂ©seau de mineurs, ne doit pas ĂȘtre dĂ©tenu par un petit nombre de personnes

👉 #scalabilitĂ© : la blockchain doit pouvoir accueillir un nombre croissant d'utilisateurs
2/ 👉 #sĂ©curitĂ© : le point le plus important, sans sĂ©curitĂ© il n'y a plus de #blockchain

Ces 3 points sont donc absolument nécessaires ; et pourtant, ils ne peuvent pas coexister.

Jusqu'ici, les blockchains n'ont pu obtenir que 2 points sur 3, et donc faire des compromis.

1/ Very instructive report from Signal founder @moxie Marlinspike about #web3. He dived in and created an NFT dapp and comes with key criticism on #decentralisation flaws of Ethereum ecosystem.

Let's discuss in context of #holochain [thread]
2/ What’s #web3? If “web1 was decentralised, web2 centralised everything into platforms, and
web3 will decentralise everything again”
3/ web1 was about decentralised open protocols
web2 was about siloed, centralised services by corporations
web3 “is the internet owned by the builders and users, orchestrated with tokens”

La commission mixte paritaire sur le projet de loi de #dĂ©centralisation 3DS ne doit pas rogner les ambitions de dĂ©veloppement des #EnergiesRenouvelables et de #solidaritĂ© Ă©nergĂ©tique entre les territoires avec des “fausses bonnes idĂ©es”

âŹ‡ïžThread 1/6
La France accumule un sérieux retard dans le développement des #EnergiesRenouvelables.

Elle est le seul pays europĂ©en Ă  ne pas avoir atteint ses objectifs en 2020 👇

Le rapport @rte_france le rappelle, l’ #Ă©olien n’est pas une option pour rĂ©ussir la neutralitĂ© carbone.

Les bénéfices sont indéniables :
1⃣ SĂ©curitĂ© d'approvisionnement aujourd’hui et demain
2⃣ Production d'électricité à moindre coût
3⃣ Dynamisme et emplois territoriaux

[#Thread] AprĂšs une petite addiction aux #PlaytoEarn ces derniers jours, je vous propose un peu de culture #crypto.

Sujet du jour : La #DeFi en répondant à ces questions :

- Qu'est ce que c'est
- Ses cas d’utilisation
- Les avantages et inconvénients

Commençons la balade âŹ‡ïž
🔾 DĂ©finition

La #DeFi est l’abrĂ©viation de « Decentralized #Finance » qui se traduit par Finance DĂ©centralisĂ©e.

Dans l’univers des #crypto, ce terme fait rĂ©fĂ©rence Ă  des app financiĂšres dĂ©centralisĂ©es (DApp) qui sont construites sur diffĂ©rentes blockchains comme Ethereum.
Pour aller + loin, le terme #DeFi est utilisé pour définir un écosystÚme de services #financiers avec les spécificités suivantes :

đŸ”č Fonctionne sans autoritĂ© centrale
đŸ”č Sans autorisation & transparent
đŸ”č GĂ©nĂ©ralement en Open Source
đŸ”č Permet de garder le contrĂŽle de sa #crypto

I’m a life long tech enthusiast, and I’ve worked in the tech industry for over a decade. I’m a massive #blockchain / #crypto / #web3 / #decentralisation cynic and skeptic. Please, convince me otherwise. A thread
Full disclosure: I’m a #crypto investor. Because right now I believe in the positive effect of non-cynics on artificially inflating the value of something, and the effect that has on getting other people to jump on the bandwagon. Not because I believe in the tech itself. 2/
Also, I may be wrong. #Blockchain certainly isn’t going away, I just don’t think it’s going to take off and replace everything, or anything much really.
There’s likely aspects I don’t fully understand, or assumptions that may be wrong. If I’ve made mistakes, then let me know! 3/

#Primer on #Ethiopian Politics

#Unitarist Vs #Federlaist

- Has little to do with level of #decentralisation of power ordinarily associated with these notions

A critical mass of Ethiopians support #federalism-incl most, if not all, forces within ruling party - incl Abiy - 1
For #ethnonationalists, I believe, any politics based on individual #equality (citizenship or republican politics) is #Unitarist - so #Nigeria, #Kenya (which ban ethnic parties), #Germany and #UnitedStates are Unitary, regardless of their robust federal/devolved structures - 2
What ethnonatioanlists consider #federalist is actually politics based on #ethnicity - (which goes beyond ethnic federalism) - much like Arend Lijphart's prototypical #consociational system - so soemthing like #Belgium and #BosniaHerzegovina, but for 80+ ethnic groups – 3

Thread (1/7): @TheEconomist published a Special Report Titled "Fixing the #Internet", which relied on #Centralisation as its core lens

Huge victory for a technical community that has spent decade explaining how the architecture & ethos of the internet are under attack.

6 arts!
2. "But like Sir Tim, many people have recently become more critical of it (...) At the heart of their disenchantment, this special report will argue, is that the internet has become much more “centralised” than it was even ten years ago."

3. #Decentralisation is ultimately a question of #democracy. As digital technology penetrates society ever more deeply & the two become ever more intertwined, the rules of the former will increasingly govern the latter"
