Cardano founder: US regulators 'not ready' to deal with cryptocurrencies

 At a recent event, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson explained why U.S. regulators are struggling to deal with cryptocurrencies, Golden Finance reports. He pointed out that the U.S. regulatory system is not equipped to deal with the revolutionary nature of cryptocurrencies. He added that the myriad of institutions that regulate U.S. financial markets are also “not ready” for crypto assets. Part of the difficulty for these institutions is that cryptocurrencies have the unique ability to change the way wealth is used, and thus the way it is classified. “In the U.S., we regulate by categories, calling something a security, another a commodity, another a currency,” Hoskinson said. “And then build regulators around those categories to specialize in those areas.” Coin as an example, explaining that it can be considered a currency, such as its legal tender status in El Salvador, or a commodity, such as gold. This makes it difficult for authorities to classify assets and thus regulate them.

The Ethereum network has currently destroyed more than 2.18 million ETHs

 According to data from Ultrasound, a total of 2,181,427.53 ETHs have been destroyed on the Ethereum network so far. Among them, OpenSea destroyed 230,047.27 ETH, ETHtransfers destroyed 205,677.70 ETH, and UniswapV2 destroyed 131,327.89 ETH. Note: Since the introduction of EIP-1559 in the Ethereum London upgrade, the Ethereum network will dynamically adjust the BaseFee of each transaction according to the transaction demand and block size, and this part of the fee will be directly burned and destroyed.

BitMEX founder: FX surplus in global surplus countries will push Bitcoin price to $1 million

 On April 27th, BitMEX founder Arthur Hayes released a new blog post to discuss his market views. Arthur Hayes believes that the current world monetary policy is inevitably going to collapse, and the foreign exchange sanctions imposed by the United States and Europe against Russia in the conflict will change the world. Trade surplus countries will lose trust in the dollar and the euro, which may lead to the purchase of censorship-resistant bitcoins by surplus countries led by China, and will increase the government deficits of the United States and the European Union on the one hand. Arthur Hayes predicts that the deficit will allow the Fed to create negative real interest rates by fixing Treasury rates, and the euro will eventually collapse due to the deficit, all accelerating Bitcoin’s journey to $1 million. Bitcoin must have a new circulation scene, and the coin culture will bring a huge crisis to the network after the disappearance of mining rewards.

    Layer 1 scaling: sharding and composability

     Ethereum and other public chains are trying to use the multi-chain structure to expand capacity, such as the homogeneous sharding that may be realized by Ethereum 2.0, the heterogeneous sharding that Polkadot is implementing, and the cross-chain structure of COSMOS. Networks such as the Avalanche Protocol, in the multi-chain structure, define function stratification and function modularization in a more detailed manner to achieve capacity expansion.

    These are huge and long-term designs. Polkadot is still going through slot auctions, COSMOS is still building infrastructure, and the technical progress and ecological construction of the rest of the chains are still in their early stages.

    For other projects that focus more on expansion, they may also focus more on a single network structure, such as implementing sharding in layer1, representing the project Near. In the long run, the expansion of layer1 (such as sharding) is inevitable. After these networks are compatible with EVM, DApps such as Defi can be quickly migrated to the network. If the asset transfer problem is solved, these networks will become the extended network of Ethereum.

    So what kind of layer1 does DApp need? The preceding principles are 2:

    1. Solve the performance bottleneck caused by the consensus problem.

    2. Do your best to be composable.

    The homogeneous sharding and heterogeneous sharding we mentioned earlier, the distributed shards are a chain composed of some nodes. It can be understood that some nodes are divided into a partition, this partition exists independently of other partitions, and tasks are processed separately.

    For example, in Ethereum 2.0, if you still follow the original roadmap for sharding, 64 shards may be established in the initial stage, and these shards will eventually be verified by the beacon chain. The communication between shards is called "cross-linking" , if one of the shards needs to verify the other shards, the communication between the shards will be carried out. Because of the existence of shards, DApp developers need to choose a shard as the main processing area when developing DApps on Ethereum.

    This means that if this DApp needs to obtain data from other shards, there will be some complicated steps. The same is true for the structures implemented by Polkadot and COSMOS. Polkadot’s parachains are shards in a heterogeneous sharding structure. The interaction between parachains is carried out through the relay chain, but the interaction process is more complicated and requires parallel chains. to be defined separately. The same goes for COSMOS.

    Such sharding is a design that delimits boundaries. Each sharding chain may form a certain island effect, so it is necessary to ensure that communication capabilities are maintained between chains, or between shards and shards, and this communication is effective. And can solve the underlying data availability. That is, when DApp needs data across slices, it does not need to consider the situation that the data is not universal and the standards on both sides are different.

    Polkadot's XCM and COSMOS' IBC are all doing this.

    But if you change your thinking, you may generate some new technical ideas.

    For example, a new consensus mechanism can be designed in the form of database sharding. It can be understood as a new sharding structure of database sharding + consensus.

    This kind of sharding is different from the above-mentioned definition of some nodes as sharding chains. Instead, all computing resources added to the network are first divided into different shards. The shards are not divided by chains and nodes, but by The random command is randomly assigned to the determined shard location, and these shards divided by the command form a large partition.

    This method of pre-setting the shard locations, and then dynamically assigning commands to various locations to form shards requires consensus to confirm the final state. This approach is much like the hybrid form of shard chains in Ethereum 2.0, where the dominant consensus process needs to be the same as the beacon chain's ghost algorithm to achieve finality.

    The best way to do this is to achieve greater parallelism and mobilize all resources to use instead of some boundary problems caused by fixed partitions.

    Second, possibly important issue is compositionality.

    Compared with Ethereum, the on-chain compositionality is the interaction between smart contracts. For example, cTokens borrowed through Compound can be mined and swapped in other DeFi. This means that the DeFi contract needs to call the Compound contract to confirm the cToken. The invocation between the contracts is a manifestation of compositionality.

    If the two are not deployed in the same network or shard, it is difficult to combine them, requiring gateway processing or the existence of a mapped smart contract. Without boundary issues, these composability would not be constrained.

    Of course, there is obviously a problem with the structure of the chain. That is, in the entire ecosystem, whether the chain that is more inclined to the bottom is universal.

    This general problem will also affect the definition of how to divide a certain layer. It can be said that sharding is an option for one-layer expansion, but in other networks, sharding can be a two-layer structure.

    In addition to technical definition and design, the overall progress may be related to several other factors.

    For example, Ethereum 2.0 is homogeneous sharding, and the chain and node standards of sharding are unified. However, if it is not considered technically and decentralization is considered, the realization of sharding in Ethereum will be limited to "maintain" and "do as well as possible" decentralization. That is, building shards, building nodes, node rewards, and subsequent stability all require users to complete them spontaneously.

    However, many public chains directly use partners or self-built nodes to solve these problems. Instead, come first. This makes Ethereum lose a lot of advantages and changes the structure of the entire market.

    When the huge public chain structures such as Ethereum, Polkadot, and COSMOS have not yet progressed, many chains have already overtaken them, such as Near and Solana, but there are still many changes in development. Ethereum will realize the split in 2023. The development progress of Cosmos and Polkadot may also be concentrated in 2023, which can be expected.

    Online 2 days floor price 20ETH Moonbirds history

     For two days on the weekend, the circle is paying attention to a project-Moonbirds.

    On April 16, it was officially put on sale at a price of 2.5 ETH , with a total of 7875 pieces, which were sold out within a few hours. According to the price of ETH USD, the funds raised in this sale are about 66 million US dollars. It is reported that 100% of the proceeds will be donated directly. To PROOF Holdings Inc, a web3 media company backed by True Ventures;

    On April 17, the 24-hour trading volume has exceeded 110 million US dollars, and the floor price has gradually risen, and as of 11:00 on April 18, it was 19.69 ETH;

    On April 18th, Moonbirds #3904 was traded at a price of 150 ETH, or about $457,000, setting a record for the highest transaction volume of the NFT series.

    B754w1xdFBvVchTfcE0wm5pF0pGztDB0vek4a87l.pngGranted, the NFT market is highly introverted, but Moonbirds seems to have easily won the market’s attention.

    Moonbirds is a series of bird-based NFT avatars launched by the podcast program PROOF (founded by True Ventures partner Kevin Rose, PROOF is a high-quality podcast focused on the NFT field), with a total of 10,000 pieces. Of these 10,000, 2,000 were offered to PROOF Collective NFT holders through free minting, 125 were distributed by the Moonbirds team, and the remaining 7,875 were minted by those who were licensed through a public lottery at 2.5 ETH each.

    RSZxbvKcgHtUct0tAC6rYRVokXZ7ixrAcLSinnTO.png

    Moonbirds are created on the Ethereum network , and each bird has different characteristics that indicate their rarity. It was originally launched as a Dutch auction starting at 2.5 ETH, but due to high demand, the team opted for a raffle and a whitelist sale (the whitelist is often used to prevent bot attacks from falling in demand). With thousands of NFTs, why is Moonbirds so popular?

    Moonbirds is said to be promising more than many other NFT projects, which explains why the demand for Mint is so strong despite its high price. Moonbirds ostensibly resemble cute bird characters, but in reality they are PROOF's "utility NFTs" .

    PROOF was a huge success when it launched PROOF Collective, a private membership club of just 1,000 NFT collectors and artists. PROOF Collective's first product, called Grails, showcases ultra-rare pieces from the likes of Larva Labs and Tyler Hobbs, as well as its floor price of 100 ETH on the secondary market. NFT holders with this permission have special permissions to access PROOF private Discord, listen to the latest podcasts in advance, participate in offline activities, and so on. In previous episodes, PROOF has also invited Beeple, GaryVee, John Crain ( SuperRare CEO), Gabby Dizon (YGG co-founder), Alexis Ohanian (Reddit co-founder), Tyler Hobbs (Fidenza creator), etc. Many of the most well-known artists, practitioners and other big names in the NFT field discussed the most cutting-edge topics in the NFT field, and their content has considerable influence in the industry.

    mMBrtsfcFR27ftVHDkCvwKWxcIk3mfx1ADZElJtM.png

    According to its CEO Kevin Rose's narrative and official content, holders of Moonbirds will roughly have the following three permissions: First, holders of Moonbirds can unlock membership in some private clubs, including entering PROOF's private Discord to participate in closed doors Discussion and so on. Second, Moonbirds holders will get advance access to PROOF's upcoming metaverse project, Project Highrise. Third, Moonbirds themselves will also have some special gameplay, and holders can put their Moonbirds into a "Nesting" state.

    twZaHpBXOx4UII0hG8Q6stbBpDjycSG35mMzdvzY.pngOfficials say Nesting will launch a few days after the auction is complete. Officials will calculate the length of the current nesting cycle and the cumulative nesting time. Both will have different rewards, and PROOF officials have not announced the specific rules for nesting rewards. After entering the locked state of nesting, Moonbirds will not be able to normally trade through secondary markets such as OpenSea (it will be prompted when the buyer places an order), but it can still be transferred to other addresses in the website provided by PROOF in the form of a personal signature. The purpose of this setting is to prevent some common remote function call phishing methods.

    Plus, PROOF will receive 5% of all secondary sales. The proceeds will be used to continue to hire more full-time employees, fund operations and create more value for the community.

    Golden Watch | Musk and Twitter turmoil

     Because of the acquisition problem, Musk and Twitter are getting a lot of attention in the international market.

    On April 14, Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a takeover offer to Twitter, intending to acquire it in cash at $54.20 per share, with an overall valuation of about $43.4 billion.

    Musk said the reason for investing in Twitter is that it now has the potential to become a global platform for free speech, and I believe that free speech is a social responsibility for a functioning democracy.

    And he believes that Twitter will neither thrive nor meet the needs of society. So, Twitter needs to transform into a private company.

    Therefore, it is proposed to acquire 100% of Twitter's shares in cash at $54.20 per share.

    As for whether the acquisition can be successful, on April 14, Musk said at the TED conference that if Twitter refuses, he still has a plan B. And said the acquisition is not valued for income.

    Following Musk's announcement, Vanguard Group, one of the asset managers, announced that they had bought a 10.3% stake in Twitter, making it the largest shareholder.

    Goldman Sachs said Musk’s offer price of $54.20 per share for Twitter was too low.

    Saudi Prince Al Waleed bin Talal Al Saud, an investor who holds a 5.2% stake in Twitter, also said on social media that Musk's $54.2 purchase price proposal did not come close to the intrinsic value of Twitter, one of Twitter's largest long-term shareholders. One, he and investment firm Kingdom Holding Company (KHC) will reject the offer.

    Twitter said it would review Elon Musk's offer at the advice of Goldman Sachs and Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. Musk's plan is to buy Twitter at a cash valuation of about $43.4 billion.

    Faced with some opposition, Musk launched a vote called "Taking Twitter private at $54.2 per share should be up to shareholders, not the board." Musk said it would be completely untenable if shareholders were not allowed to vote, and that shareholders, not the board, own the company.

    Musk, who often influences the market and companies with his appeal, seems to be making a lot of layouts.

    On March 27, some netizens asked Tesla CEO Elon Musk whether he would consider building a new social media platform, which is composed of open source algorithms, free speech is given the highest priority, and publicity is minimized. Musk responded that he was seriously considering the matter. Earlier, Musk said free speech was critical to the functioning of democracy and questioned whether Twitter strictly adhered to free speech principles.

    Soon, on April 5, Twitter announced that it would appoint Musk to its board of directors.

    Affected by this, Twitter (TWTR.N) rose in a straight line before the market, and is now up nearly 7%.

    Musk owns 9.2% of Twitter. And the Twitter CEO also said: Musk is both a fanatical believer and a strong critic of Twitter, which is exactly what we need on Twitter.

    Following the announcement, Musk said significant improvements to Twitter would be made in the coming months, adding that he looked forward to further collaboration with Parag Agrawal and the Twitter board.

    A few days later, things turned around.

    On April 11, Twitter CEO said: Elon Musk has decided not to join our board. Musk is our largest shareholder, and we will continue to take his advice.

    Then, on April 13, Elon Musk was sued by a Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) shareholder for failing to disclose that he bought a substantial amount of the company's stock, which had an impact on the company's stock price. At this point, it was already known that Musk held a 9.2% stake in Twitter.

    According to Bloomberg analysis, Musk does not join Twitter’s board of directors or wants to buy more shares. Musk currently holds about 9% of Twitter’s shares, and according to the internal restrictions of Twitter’s board of directors, his stake cannot exceed 14.9%, which means He can't get a say on the board, not only can't take over Twitter, but he can't have much influence over the Twitter service because it's very difficult to influence product decisions on the board. The Bloomberg report pointed out that Musk wants to acquire and influence Twitter, and by giving up his board seat, Musk can buy more shares of Twitter.

    Musk's desire to change Twitter and his bullishness on Twitter seem to be related to the freedom that cryptocurrencies advocate. As a platform close to cryptocurrencies, Twitter has a large number of cryptocurrency users.

    This brings up user expectations for Twitter and labels like free speech, decentralization, etc.

    On April 7, former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that he regrets Twitter. Although Dorsey has announced his resignation as CEO of Twitter, gradually fade out of Twitter. But he feels guilty about Twitter's role in promoting a "centralized internet."

    Several well-known personalities have also expressed their views on Twitter's decentralization.

    NBA Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said on social media that many technology giants, such as Google and Facebook, are calling their antitrust lawyers to ask if they can buy Twitter and get approval. Twitter is also on the phone with their lawyers to ask who could be their buyer.

    Mark Cuban says Twitter may not choose to sell, but will find someone more friendly to buy Elon Musk's stock and kick him out. For the crypto community, a group of decentralized supporters should create a DAO to acquire Twitter, and in the future let token holders vote on topic trends and identity verification on social media.

    However, FTX founder SBF proposed some implementation ideas for decentralized Twitter:

    1. Tweets are on-chain, encrypted: The sender chooses who has access to them. If likes and retweets are also on-chain, this will force some L1s to scale to hundreds of thousands or even millions of TPS, but it will eventually happen.

    2. Monetization comes in two forms: Tweet level, where the underlying protocol charges per message; UI level, which can be monetized or subsidized, for example, ads can be displayed, monetized through it, and used to pay for network fees. Each UI can have its own moderation policy, no longer is one person/company controlling speech.

    3. The following can be integrated into Twitter: Tips/Payments/Monetization for Content Creators; NFTs/profiles/avatars; and DOGE .

    A large number of users who advocate freedom and cryptocurrency are suggesting that Twitter move from web2 to web3, but if the huge business system of the Twitter platform is fully turned to decentralization, it will inevitably be a long process. But compared to the changes in the platform, the wealth created by Twitter in the hands of capital comes from users. Whether this can be decentralized may be what users care about after enthusiasm. It's like asking Musk if he's willing to give up his own interests and distribute the proceeds to users. I don't know what the result will be?
