Layer 1 Should Be Innovative in the Short Term but Less in the Long Term

"One of the key tradeoffs in blockchain design is whether to build more functionality into base-layer blockchains themselves (“layer 1”), or to build it into protocols that live on top of the blockchain, and can be created and modified without changing the blockchain itself (“layer 2”). "

Emerging Scilla & Vyper Programming Languages for Smart Contracts

"Despite its success and widespread use for writing smart contracts on Ethereum, Solidity is a relatively new programming language, naturally susceptible to bugs and some high-level logical faults. Out of the demand for smart contract creation and improved security methods for writing them, programming languages Vyper and Scilla have emerged."

Ethereum’s ERC-20 Tokens Explained, Simply

"There’s a lot of acronyms in the cryptocurrency space. This intimidates newcomers. The fact that acronyms in this space are sometimes even combinations of letters and numbers confounds that level of intimidation. But there’s nothing fancy about it. Long story short, an ERC-20 token is just a cryptocurrency that’s built on the Ethereum platform. Don’t worry, I’ll explain what that means."

Thought Bitcoin Had a Whale Problem? Ethereum Is Much Worse

"Some of these ideals have been challenged by the rise of the crypto “whales” — the relatively small number of mysterious wallets that hold disproportionate amounts of crypto wealth. It’s important, of course, not to overstate this problem. A vast amount of wealth is held by cryptocurrency addresses, which are not necessarily owned by individuals. In many cases, the addresses belong to cryptocurrency exchanges. "

Ethereum, FOMO3D, and Dangerous Game Theory

"FOMO3D is a blockchain game that currently has $12 million in ETH at stake, with all of it locked up in a very bizarre-looking set of rules. But upon closer inspection, the rules aren’t so strange. In fact, it turns out to resemble a scaled-up version of a classic game in behavioral game theory. They teach it at Harvard Business School."

Ethereum Presale Dynamics Revisited

"We set out to answer if there was inside-investing or other irregularities in the Ethereum presale. We looked at the rules of the presale and formulated strategies for all actors. The shape of the chart (as compared to other charts referenced by Preston) can be explained by these strategies."
