SBI Holdings, a $5.2 billion banking giant in Japan, launched a bitcoin mining venture, manufacturing bitcoin miners.

This is interesting because of the timing of it. Either they feel very confident crypto will recover soon or they can take on Bitmain, Canaan, and others.

Russell Yanofsky belongs in the Bitcoin Hall of Legends. I'm looking at this week's merge of github.com/bitcoin/bitcoi…

- 31 months from open to merge
- updated or rebased 152 times
- created almost a dozen spin-off PRs
- almost 200 comments by all reviewers

That's commitment.

Correction: 19 months, not 31 months (Bitcoin moves so fast that 2017 seemed like at least an extra year away). Still, an incredible example of dedication. Lots of people wanted better separation in Bitcoin Core, but it took real grit to see it through. Thank you, Russell!

This is a bitter post to announce, but we are discontinuing Mist. You can read the full post here but for your convenience I will try to summarize in a few tweets: medium.com/@avsa/sunsetti…

There are mainly two reasons a good and a bad one: ecosystem and security

  • 19 hours ago

Security is the bad one: there's no way around electron security, it was never meant to run arbitrary code. Brave has long moved past it, we tried alternatives but they were all underwhelming. We feel we can't recommend anyone running a crypto browser on electrum at this moment.

  • 19 hours ago

Ecosystem is the good one: with aforementioned Brave, Opera etc, we feel browser vendors are now very close to having full web3 support than we were of building a secure browser framework. We didn't want to do redundant work.

In a sense, this feels like a victory: Mist was the app that launched the ERC20 standard and set many others (checksum, blockies, ens). We feel that our work was influential in showing other apps a way forward and the integrated ethereum vision for a better web.

Our team will remain working at the foundation. We took everything that was good about Mist and are repackaging in many apps, including a few things we can't see anywhere like Grid, an app to help users manage and download nodes. We hope to help other EF teams in design and UX.

Google’s Stadia has made me think. If desktop game streaming obviates game stores like Steam, perhaps 5G app streaming will obviate app stores. Just go to a URL to use an app as a stream of pixels. Perhaps an old idea to 5G experts, but maybe worth investigating.

ProgPOW seems like a huge waste of time and effort. Resources should be devoted to POS - not contentious POW changes.

If its not contentious than why have @phildaian @koeppelmann @ameensol @gakonst @_prestwich @badcryptobitch @izqui9 and many others signaled against it?

At it's best it provides minimal and temporary benefits, while risking a contentious or failed hard fork. I'm against it, for what my signaling is worth.

Rule number 1 of building community: have very, very few "hills to die on". It's much easier to calmly and fairly discuss a topic if you haven't already decided that "winning" is more important than the discussion atmosphere itself.

Lately it seems that people have too many of these. I personally opposed the DAO fork, but I didn't commit my personal identity to that preference. So when people rallied around the other outcome, I was able to feel genuinely good about the whole process afterwards. That matters.

If you start to feel like a topic matters more to you than your relationship to the other humans you're discussing it with, take a bit of a breather for a couple days. Figure out if those are your genuine priorities or if you just got caught up in the topic.

Light wallets are essentially an attack on #Bitcoin.

The question shouldn't be "how do we make them more appealing / better?", but "how do we minimise and mitigate them?"

(Note "light" wallet software run with your own full node is not really a light wallet in this context.)

While everyone is fretting over a PoW algorithm that’ll have no relevance in 5 years...

Let’s focus on EIP-1559. It would allow us to fix the inefficient fee market, make Ethereum more user friendly, kill economic abstraction and lower total issuance %.

The exchanges can't get people trading on their shitty platform so they create fake volume that shows up on coinmarketcap (no one should use it).
