0/ Back from #Sydney and can think of no better way to get myself back up to speed than by putting together a daily thread.

Read on to find out what's been going on in the realm of #crypto and #blockchain over the past 24 hours!
1/ 🔛 @0xProject [ $ZRX ], an open protocol for decentralized exchange on the #Ethereum #blockchain, unveiled 0x Instant.

Buy #crypto with one click via your favourite dApps, price feeds, NFT marketplaces, non-custodial wallets and more. Game changer!…
2/ 🔢 Following their popular 'The State of the Ethereum Network' post, leading #blockchain startup @ConsenSys shared an updated look at various #Ethereum-specific metrics.

Now, visitors can view individual CDPs, historical bites, potential liquidations and token statistics in far greater detail!
4/ 🗞️ A massive edition of 'Protocol Weekly' from @8x_Protocol! The newsletter showcases the progress of L1 and #Ethereum-based L2 protocols.

This week we have @ParityTech, @KyberNetwork, @JoinColony, @AirSwap, @GraphProtocol, @Quantstamp and more!…
5/ 👨🏻‍🏫 Trying to wrap your head around Eth 2.0 economics? Then fear not! @Econoar (Founder, @ETHHub_io) has compiled a page on the EthHub repo detailing all you need to know on the economics underlying the not-yet-released Ethereum Serenity upgrade. Nice!…
6/ 📢 @RiseVisionTeam [ $RISE ] successfully executed its consensus soft fork. Now, the RISE #blockchain runs in accordance with an altered dPoS.

These changes were detailed last month by Andrea Baccega (CTO) in the below blog post.…
7/ 🤝 Decentralized oracle network @Chainlink [ $LINK ] partnered with #blockchain-based remittance solution platform, @ETHAremit [ $ETA ].

Thanks to #Chainlink, ETHA's smart contracts can access off-chain data feeds and APIs to validate/execute actions (e.g., bank transfer).
8/ 🔗 Another player in the #blockchain oracle space, @RhombusNetwork, partnered with fellow @ConsenSys-backed startup @OpenLawOfficial to begin automating standardized derivatives contracts.

Marked the first of a four-phase #CoinbasePro launch.…
10/ 📣 Preceding this was another ann. out of #Coinbase revealing that they're exploring the addition of 31 new digital assets incl. @MakerDAO [ $MKR ] and @Zilliqa [ $ZIL ].

Mostly #Ethereum-based tokens. Is easier to integrate the #ERC20 standard with existing infrastructure.
11/ 🤓 Big news out of @mitDCI/@MITpress, sharing the first issue of Cryptocurrency Research Review!

Looks at papers on CBC Casper (@Muneeb, @JudeCNelson, @AaronBlankstein), accumulators (@PWuille), and the economic limits of #Bitcoin and the #blockchain.

15/ 📊 One of the more comprehensive, insightful TA commentary I found vis-à-vis the state of the #cryptocurrency market came from @MustStopMurad.

He presents one helluva 16-part thread looking mainly at #bitcoin [ $BTC ] and #ethereum's ether [ $ETH ].
16/ 🎙️ For those wanting to know the latest on the progress out of #Ethereum, the core devs held their 51st meeting earlier today. Constantinople has been scheduled for block #7080000 (≈16th Jan.)!

Next meeting date is 4th Jan. at 14:00 UTC.
17/ 🔧 Another useful #Ethereum-related tool has been created.

They discuss upcoming Komodo updates, dPoW, @ChainzillaIO, @VerusCoin, Zcash's Sapling upgrade, and more!
19/ ‼️ For a contrary take on Komodo's dPoW Sybil-resistant mechanism, @JEhrenhofer shared the below blog post comparing it to PoW.

Justin expresses concern with the pockets of staunch dPoW proponents emerging in the #crypto space.
