(1/31) Decentralization

What does it mean? Why is it important for the World Computer? Why does every project claim to be decentralized? What does decentralization mean for the @ethereum endgame?

If you've ever wondered "is decentralization real," this thread is for you! (2/31) More of a long-form reader? No problem!

(1/25) Think back to 2014 - the beginning of @ethereum - and compare it to what we have today. What if I told you that the Ethereum of 2030 will be AT LEAST as different from today's Ethereum?

We live in the world of Today-Fi; let us consider the world of Tomorrow-Fi. (2/25) Interested in video content? Check this out via @flywheelpod:

(1/25) @ethereum Principles: Crypto-Economics

Proof of Work and Proof of Stake are tools we use to build systems devoid of trust. Both consensus mechanisms enable centralized actors (miners/validators) to trustlessly take unilateral actions.

The theory behind trustlessness. (2/25) More of a long-form reader? No problem!

(1/25) @ethereum Roadmap: Distributed Validator Technology (DVT)

Ethereum is built on a decentralized, resilient network of nodes, but the nodes themselves are centralized and (relatively) fragile... for now.

(1/25) @ethereum roadmap: Rollups, Danksharding and Settlement Outside the EVM

Rollups are predicated on the idea that the complete, final record exists on-chain. Danksharding is about pushing this data outside the EVM (off-chain).

(1/25) @ethereum Roadmap: EVM Object Format (EOF)

Ethereum is built to be simple; no entity should gain control just because they are they only one who can manage it. But simplicity has costs. We pay for it with every. single. instruction.

(1/16) We live in an era dominated by rapid technological progress. While I had my eyes on Ethereum, I almost completely missed the A.I. revolution.

But fortunately, I found @LeonardoAi_.

Let me show you how video game development is about to be radically transformed. (2/16) My first internship was at @riotgames. I spent summer 2011 working on a ton of interesting stuff; I wrote a physics engine, I built a QA automation platform, and I rewrote the file format for some of the in-game assets.

Let me tell you, there are A LOT of assets.

(1/6) Introducing a new SalomonCrypto project: Inevitable Ethereum

All the explainers, ideas and content you've come to know and love in a richer, more permanent format!

salomoncrypto.notion.site/0-Introduction… (2/6) My goal: I want to have high quality resources ready for the next generation of @ethereum builders.

I began in May, and Twitter has been my preferred medium. I LOVE nested threads and the reality is that it’s where the builders’ attention is.

But it’s time for a change.
