"One of the most important aspects to consider in blockchain technology is how this relatively new technology can help improve globalization — i.e., the process of interaction and integration of people, companies and governments worldwide.
"ZKP can be used for much more than just privacy. ZKPs are so versatily that it may redefine how blockchains work."
"Insights on quantum computing, its potential risk for Ethereum, and the efforts underway to standardize quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms."
"Android is open source, which means that users can freely change and distribute software, but its apps are not. Blockchain technology is also supposed to be open source, but that is not always the case."
"In the case of Bitcoin or Ethereum, a blockchain can be thought of as a shared, public database. Anyone can download a copy of this database and participate in adding new records to it."
"This is the second installment in the Ethereum 101 series. Previously, we explored blocks and how they’re linked to form a blockchain, then downloaded Ethereum Grid and poked around at real block data on a test network."
"Basically a Bitcoin ETF combines a traditional investment instrument, the ETF, with the most popular crypto asset: bitcoin. This creates a simple and legally compliant way to invest or trade the price of bitcoin that is accessible on the markets that investors are already familiar with. "
"For the past century economists have proposed a suite of theories relating to industrial dynamics, technological change and innovation. There has been an implication in these models that the institutional environment is stable. However, a new class of institutional technologies—most notably blockchain technology—lower the cost of institutional entrepreneurship along these margins, propelling a process of institutional evolution."
"In this essay, we examine the importance of funding open-source development, what funding mechanisms exist, and tradeoffs that each of them brings. Next, we apply our findings to to Bitcoin and the broader cryptocurrency landscape. We analyze how Bitcoin development has been funded in the past and how it might evolve in the future."
"Merkle Trees allow blockchains to be both more efficient and trustworthy. Merkle Trees can save on memory and processing power while maintaining security."
"Corporations and other forms of business organizations can be supplemented with blockchain-based agency constructs. Blockchain-based decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) expand the definition of the firm. On-chain DAO governance enables dynamic regulatory features that facilitate unprecedented decentralized regulatory solutions."
"The Hype Cycle provides an overview of how blockchain capabilities are evolving from a business perspective and maturity across different industries"
"How might blockchain-based financial markets be regulated and supervised? This paper argues that asset tokenisation and underlying distributed ledger technology (DLT) open up new ways of supervising financial risks. It then puts the case for "embedded supervision", ie a framework that allows compliance with regulatory goals to be automatically monitored by reading the market's ledger, thus reducing the need for firms to actively collect, verify and deliver data."
