Arbitrum One is seeing incredible growth since its launch, recently skyrocketing its way to the #2 spot in TVL for #Ethereum bridges.

Want to get started in the fastest growing Layer 2 on $ETH?

Here’s how:
Step 1. Download web3 wallet

Just like Ethereum, Arbitrum is a network meaning you will have to configure your web 3 wallet in order to connect to dapps

You can do this with wallets such as Metamask, and you’ll need to be holding eth
Step 2. Add the Arbitrum One network

>Click on the Metamask extension
>Click “Ethereum Mainnet” network
>Click Custom RPC and enter the following:
Step 3. Switch from Arbitrum One back to Ethereum

Once you’ve added the Arbitrum Network, you will need to switch back to $ETH Mainnet

The network will be displayed at the top of your Metamask

Once you’re on Ethereum Mainnet, head to
Step 4. Deposit tokens from L1

On the Arbitrum Bridge, enter the amount of tokens you wish to bridge over then click “Deposit” & follow the prompts in Metamask (this step will require a small fee for gas)
Step 5. Wait about 10 minutes for you funds to arrive

After the deposit is made, there will be a link to the transaction on the bottom of the page where you can view its status.

Make sure you switch back to arbitrum network in order to see your funds when they arrive
Step 6. Explore the dapps

A comprehensive list of dapps on Arbitrum can be found at:

Some of the most popular dapps deployed on Arbitrum are sushi, Uniswap, and hop protocol
Since i’m sure some are curious, here’s what a transaction looks like using Arbitrum on uniswap

Instant finality & .0019 $ETH ($6.5) fee!

#Bitcoin & the crypto market have been through a lot in the past, both good & bad.

For this reason, I’ve compiled a list of its most iconic moments, in what I’d like to call the crypto nostalgia thread.

Here are crypto’s most memorable moments..
1. Bitcoin Whitepaper

It’s the moment that started it all

On the 31st of October, 2008, an anonymous user under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto published a link to the $BTC Whitepaper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Preer electronic cash system” on the cryptography mailing list forum
2. Genesis block

On Jan 3rd, 2009, the $BTC network was created when Satoshi mined the genesis block

Embedded in this block was the text “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks”, which references a headline posted by The Times

In the fast paced crypto market where hundreds of tokens are launched every day, it can be hard to single out which ones present the best investment opportunities..

For this reason, I’ve compiled a list of the top 20 blue chips I believe are best suited for success in the future
1. Bitcoin

#Bitcoin has proven itself as one of the best investments for risk averse investors looking to get started in crypto.

Its outperformed every asset class in existence, has developed powerful network effects, & is growing even faster than the internet’s adoption rate
2. Ethereum

#Ethereum is one of the best growth assets to invest in, & it has the numbers to prove it.

By far, #Ethereum leads in protocol devs, # of active dApps, protocol revenue, & is expected to undergo a major upgrade known as “ETH 2.0” within the next couple years

Your gas fees are high, but do you know why?

Since Arbitrum One went live this week, I found it’d be suiting to explain the importance of layer 2 scaling solutions like Arbitrum, and what exactly the issue is that they are trying to resolve
Ever since their inception, blockchain based technologies have been faced with a difficult problem known as the ‘Scalability Trilemma’.

The Scalability Trilemma states that trade offs are inevitable between three important properties: Decentralization, Security, & Scalability.
In a blockchain framework, you can only have 2 of the above properties, but not all three.

To get an easier grasp of this concept, let’s take a look at #Bitcoin.

The #Bitcoin protocol chose to stay true to security & decentralization, while sacrificing scalability in return.

The single strongest deterring factor of the crypto industry is the lack of education on the subject…

Let’s change that.

Here are 24 things I wish I knew before starting crypto..🧁
1. Crypto is unforgiving

Crypto will wipe you out more often than it can make you rich.

In this space, thousands of people lose their hard-earned money due to human error, scams, or exploits.

Being your own custodian comes w great responsibility
2. Traders don’t usually win

Ppl jump into this market thinking they need to be first to every speculative bubble, every meme hype train, or every large NFT drop

This strategy more often than not leaves you rekt. The majority of ppl are better off holding $BTC or $ETH long term

Top projects with the best fundamentals and lowest recognition..
1. KP3R Network

KP3R can be described as a network for automating smart contacts on $ETH.

Users submit “jobs” (liquidations, harvesting, batch executions) to the KP3R network, where a Keeper can then perform the task & get rewarded in the form of KP3R tokens.
2. Unlock Protocol

$UDT is an open source protocol designed to help creators monetize their content without a middleman

Creators deploy “locks” in the form of NFT’s with specific parameters allowing for tickets, customizable memberships & even paywalls for online content

There’s been a lot of talk about #EIP1559 recently..

However, not many seem to know that this is just 1 small step forward in #Ethereum’s roadmap toward “Serenity”, or “ETH 2.0”, & there are in fact many more substantial upgrades to come..

Let’s dive in..🧁
In order to understand these upgrades, we first need to understand $ETH 2.0

$ETH 2.0 refers to an infrastructure upgrade of #Eth with the aim of creating a more secure, user-friendly, & scalable blockchain that can accommodate the growth required to become a global supercomputer
Beacon Chain

The beacon chain is an upgraded version of $ETH that will eventually replace the legacy $ETH blockchain currently in use.

Its purpose is to introduce a new consensus model known as PoS & coordinate an expanded network of shards & stakers.
