This week, Greyscale announced that they are putting together a fund for buying crypto tokens which are part of the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) ecosystem. The tokens in the fund are all assets build on the Ethereum blockchain, because that’s where a strong DeFi has network has developed over the last ~2 years.
The primary reason for using a DeFi fund instead of a general crypto fund, is because DeFi assets are productive, generate additional yield, and are profitable. …
As far as I know, the Wall Street Journal article published today on Crypto Yield Farming, is the first time a major mainstream publication has acknowledged the existence of Yield Farming. It’s great that more people will learn about the financial tools they have access to, but there are parts of the WSJ piece that are inaccurate or I disagree with, so this article will clarify some of those points.
This information is provided simply as education material with the spirit of transparency in mind; it’s not financial advice.
Yield Farming is the process of providing any kind of capital…
The recently launched dapp on the Ethereum blockchain, Shibaswap, has a high APR for staking Liquidity Provider tokens, however, the developer can easy remove all liquidity staked in the smart contract and steal funds. Let’s walk through the code and show how it is unsafe, then show how the dev can fix this particular issue.
First a quick primer on Liquidity Pools, AMMs like Uniswap that allow you to swap between different tokens safely and efficiently, and LP staking programs:
Liquidity is typically represented by discrete orders placed by individuals onto a centrally operated order book. A participant…
ETH 2 is a reality. Let’s answer some questions and clear some things up.
Getting right to it. If you’re looking for more learning resources or some practice Ethereum developer challenges, check out EthHole.com, go down the rabbit hole on Ethereum Development.
Take in an ethereum address and build a tree of all other addresses that have ever interacted with it, and the ones that have interacted with those after the original, etc..
Suggested technologies: Ethers.js or Web3.js, Nodejs, Infura.
Part of my predictions for what you will see at ETHDenver this year is that the DAOs will be back. Get in on it, and launch your own, it’s never been easier. …
EthDenver is an annual hackathon for Ethereum developers, designers, enthusiasts and newcomers alike. A hackathon is an invention marathon, where builders are given resources and prizes for creating new things over a period of time. A lot of great projects have come out of this weekend long event, and having gone the last two years (first as a participant and then as a mentor) I’ve seen the things being built as being a great predictor for what will happen in the Ethereum Ecosystem for the year following.
These are my predictions for the event and following months:
TL;DR: One step towards building better DAOs is tokenizing our time and building markets where people are paid more fairly is tokenizing individuals time. You can now buy my time as token on Ethereum.
Living in Washington, DC, many of my friends and folks I know in the area are consultants for the government or other large organizations. They do their work and contribute to a business or towards a goal, and take home some pay. Usually, they get about half of what the organization they’re working for actually paid to have that work done. The rest goes to Deloitte…
This is the story of how I built EthHole.com in a weekend without any code. I was able to create a large list of jobs in a very specific topic (Ethereum development), figure out a value adding way to engage users, start an email list, & make a bit of profit.
Made with these free no-code tools Airtable, table2sheet, mailchimp, IFTTT, Google Slides, Domains.Google, Medium. Please show some love on ProductHunt.
When I was learning the programming language of solidity and starting my journey towards being an Ethereum developer I struggled getting past “hello world” and basic intro tutorials. There…
Ethereum made an online code editor called Remix. Remix recently started allowing users to import code from GitHub. This combined with super secure, audited, industry-standard code libraries from Open Zeppelin makes launching tokens easier than ever.

I spent a few hours today trying to update Go, and I’m very frustrated at how hard it was to figure out, and how unhelpful existing docs were. Maybe someone will find this useful.
The Official Golang install instructions didn’t work for me, installing on Ubuntu 17.10. The common advice I got was to “just use apt install golang,” however, this installed an older version which was not working with my project.
Head over to the Goland downloads area and download the linux version: https://golang.org/dl/
