How to Value a Crypto-Asset — A Model

"Over the past two years blockchain-based tokenized networks — entities that we believe comprise a new asset-class — have accrued billions of dollars in value and raised more than a billion dollars in capital. Since these networks are fundamentally different from more well-established assets, traditional valuation frameworks do not apply. What do you pay for an asset that offers no claim on an underlying business, generates no operating cashflow, and promises to pay nothing out to its owners?"

Russia’s greatest Ponzi mastermind is dead, but his legacy lives on in the crypto world

"Sergei Mavrodi, creator of one of the largest Ponzi schemes in history, died last month at age 62, potentially leaving millions of “investors” in countries around the world in the lurch. Beginning around the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Moscow-born Mavrodi’s exploits expanded and evolved over the course of nearly 30 years, putting him in the same league as Bernie Madoff, who operated arguably the biggest such fraud ever, and Charles Ponzi himself, the Italian con artist whose name is now synonymous with this type of financial deception."

ASIC Resistance is Nothing but a Blockchain Buzzword

"In the wake of the recent and most (in)significant push to change Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work, I thought it would be a good opportunity to score some more brownie points from the community by laying it to rest. I’m going to discuss the more broader topic of hardware specialization (“ASIC Resistance”), the technical and logical flaws in trying to resist specialized hardware, some history around this, and then I’ll touch on what I hope to be a short lived (and fishy) motion for a Proof-of-Work algorithm change that nobody wants besides two and a half people"
