Gas is one of the most fundamental concepts on Ethereum but it also seems to be one of the most misunderstood.

Eric Wall

So, Hedera Hashgraph is launching on September 16. It’s a 3rd generation DLT and it can do 10,000+ TPS!     Amazing, right? Yeah! Or wait, I forgot something. Because I hold huge bags of bitcoin (or was it BCH? or Qtum? I lose track) that I’m apparently for some magical reason unable to sell, I don’t have any alternative but to conjure […]

Multicoin Capital

Vitalik conceived Ethereum as the world computer: a single, composable, open, permissionless state machine that could run trust-minimized code. And while Ethereum was a breakthrough on many fronts—P2P layer, deterministic state machines, composable smart contracts and more—it was lacking in many others. These limitations—most notably, the lack of throughput, high latency, expensive transactions, and the use of […]

The Unbundling Of Ethereum

Software is the encoding of human thought, and as such software is limited only by our collective imagination. Ethereum embraced this as the first computer that allowed anyone to program arbitrary logic on a trust-minimized, global, permissionless, censorship-resistant computer. This unlocked an incredible wave of experimentation. How could anyone have forecast the massive opportunities for Open […]

The answer has tremendous implications for the industry and the way investors allocate capital across crypto-assets. The question is how important is decentralization and to what degree can we compromise on decentralization for particular use-cases? I […]

Is Blockchain Technology Really  Disruptive?

Definitely, Bitcoin is not! (This is not an academic article. It is an attempt to check if blockchains and their solutions are really disruptive or not. I present here unpopular findings and another version of the story that, as far as I am concerned, has not been told before! I have read several articles and […]

Arbitraging Inefficient Markets: Building a Trading Strategy on Correlations

By now everyone is aware just how correlated the Cryptoasset markets are. To borrow from an article by The Block, “if you own one cryptocurrency, you own them all.” This has become increasingly obvious during the bear market where all cryptoassets falling in unison. This correlation can be seen in the matrix bellow from Delphi Digital’s […]
