0/ A massive 24 hours in the world of #crypto and #blockchain.

To help you stay on top of it all, I've put together this thread. Just doing my bit to make your day a bit easier!
1/ 👾 @TRONFoundation [ $TRX ] revealed it will be establishing a #blockchain game fund dubbed #TRONArcade. Up to $100M committed for use over the next 3 years!

2/ 🧸 U.K.-based @CryptoKaijuIO, a startup offering designer vinyl toys that are traceable on the #Ethereum #blockchain as an NFT, has officially launched.

The first kaiju, Genesis, is now selling for $55. Check it out! cryptokaiju.io/product/genesi…

[Monero Price Thread]

1/ Perhaps $XMR / USD ; #Monero bounces off of the lower support depicted here.
2/ Moving Fib Indicator (custom) showing the same thing $XMR #Monero
3/ ZN Double Guppy showing impending reversal as well very soon. #Monero $XMR

@claudiorlandi @rbkhmrcr @AarhusUni @uclisec Abstract:
* QuisQuis provides both a relatively small state footprint with comparison to ever growing chains Zcash & Monero (similar to Bitcoin UTXO set)
* QuisQuis provides plausible deniability - a user can deny he's part of a tx (in contrast to Zcash, similar to Monero)
@claudiorlandi @rbkhmrcr @AarhusUni @uclisec Proofs are reasonably computationally light (much lighter than Zcash's zk-SNARKs), and small in size (~13kb, still larger than Monero's post-bulletproofs which are 3.7kb).
@claudiorlandi @rbkhmrcr @AarhusUni @uclisec Me:
Scalability (smaller state footprint): better than #Zcash & #Monero, definitely not better than #MimbleWimble.
Privacy: same as Monero & MW, worse than Zcash in theory, better than Zcash in practice (small usage of shielded txs due to overhead).

1\ In 6 hours, #Bulletproofs become mandatory on the #Monero mainnet.

I don't remember being this excited about a hard fork in a long time. The article below gives you the full picture as to why, but I will try to summarize it in this thread.

medium.com/digitalassetre…
2\ Disclaimer before I begin: A couple of weeks ago, I shared some of the findings of our report on #Zcash and many in the community (incl. @fluffypony) perceived it as an attack on @monero.

- It wasn't. In fact, we see vibrant experimentation and development in Monero.
3\ #Bulletproofs is one the most important technologies deployed on a mainnet this year. It can be applied to many proof systems to increase privacy and efficiency, as it reduces transaction sizes (& fees) by as much as 80%.

To fully appreciate this, let's clarify a few things:

1/ Monero Price Analysis Article

Flat top triangle is pretty apparent here based on the price action. I attached an example of this chart formation as well.

This is generally considered to be a bullish pattern although the price could break out the downside (what I predict)
2/ There are two major characteristics that validate a trader’s hypothesis that this pattern is under way and those are:

A) The top of the triangle being tested multiple times
and

B) There being a series of ‘higher lows’ that occur in conjunction.
3/ The first two pictures below show the 'proof' that $XMR is in a flat top triangle pattern. Simultaneously, it appears to be in an ascending channel as well.

There was a confirmed breakout in the 3rd pic, then it returned back to the channel.

In danger of breaking below now

1/ @alexhevans recently dug into the numbers behind forks of #Bitcoin, #Ethereum, #Monero & #Zcash.

Main conclusion: Value can’t be forked away as easily as people like to think. placeholder.vc/blog/2018/9/17…
2/ Secondary conclusion: Despite parent #cryptonetworks retaining users, devs & value, the child forks trade at (puzzling) relative valuation premiums.
3/ To follow are graphs and conclusions from @alexhevans that are relevant to specific actors or ratios (if you're not a fan of long form writing 😉)

1/ $XMR #Monero has been looking very ugly as of late, here are some notes that I took on a scrolled out chart (H4)
2/ $XMR #Monero MAX upside that I can see on here is +10% before it hits that downtrend line established since July.

Overall, this has a very bearish outlook imo.
3/ Long, long-term support (from back in 2017; it'll be interesting to see if it still has any impact) = $85 (approx.) for $XMR #Monero

J'ai lu "Essai sur la nature du commerce en général" de Cantillon (1755), voici un #thread sur des trucs que j'ai appris / que j'ai trouvés intéressants / des extraits choisis. 1/
2/ Bien qu'"Essai" ait été probablement rédigé vers 1730, il n'a été publié qu'en 1755 suite à une forte censure en #France, il a été diffusé sous la forme d'un manuscrit inédit entre son achèvement et sa publication. Il est considéré comme le 1er traité complet sur l'#économie
3/ Le type de monnaie utilisé n'est pas décrété mais provient de l'usage. L'or et l'argent sont de facto les meilleures solutions (en 1730. Et en 2018? quid des #cryptomonnaies ?)

One of the most robust explorations I've read on the economic & game theoretic limits of #Bitcoin & #PoW more broadly: nber.org/papers/w24717
Sorry for the paywall, but the paper is well worth the $5. Makes me think of hybrid #PoW & #PoS as a potential solution (part of the thinking around our $DCR investment), as research for pure #PoS is ongoing.
Paper confirmed my concerns around what on-chain transaction fees may have to be when the coinbase reward goes to zero (to accomodate 0% rate of inflation). Depending on assumptions: $18,700 to $37,400 to $108,700 per txn.

1/ There are two kinds of very intelligent people I see in #crypto privacy. One group naturally gets privacy and the other deeply struggles with it. Surprisingly, much of it boils down to personality.
2/ The intelligent people who don't get privacy are generally optimistic about human nature. They tend to view people as basically good and they have a tendency to see the best in others. They are often overly honest, trusting, and kind.
3/ Many of them you could probably look at and correctly guess that they don't jay walk even if the streets are empty.

To them, privacy is largely about keeping your personal life and business dealings confidential from others. LE and govt aren't considered bad actors.

The Pirate Bay et Showtime ont semble-t-il fait exécuter à leurs visiteurs un script JS de minage de #criptocurrency theguardian.com/technology/201…
L'article ne précise pas de quelle #criptocurrency il s'agit, mais une chose est sure, ce n'est ni du minage de #Bitcoin ni de l'#Ether
Vu la difficulté de minage actuelle pour ces 2 #blockchain, il faut impérativement des ASIC pour avoir une véritable chance de miner un bloc
