Personally I think you should start with the communication layer first, and add the formal governance layer later. If you're doing it correctly, step 1 is just defining the values and building the community, you'll only have something you actually need to govern a bit later. https://t.co/ErfdSQyyXb

https://t.co/I5JPqoC2rS has dark mode now! Big thanks to @dcodev_ for implementing this, and to the @gitcoin bounties platform for organizing.

The terminal total difficulty has been set to 58750000000000000000000. This means the ethereum PoW network now has a (roughly) fixed number of hashes left to mine. https://t.co/3um744WkxZ predicts the merge will happen around Sep 15, though the exact date depends on hashrate.

Idea: stealth addresses for ERC721s. A low-tech approach to add a significant amount of privacy to the NFT ecosystem. So you would be able to eg. send an NFT to vitalik.eth without anyone except me (the new owner) being able to see who the new owner is. https://t.co/UdqK6NAYjn

I continue to find probability distributions with infinite means fascinating. Particularly how their averages *don't converge* as you sample more values. You can even replicate the behavior deterministically with "tan at integers" as a pseudo-RNG.

Some quick theorycrafting of how much data space we can save by improving compression (especially in rollups). ERC4337 signature aggregation ( https://t.co/wFJI3BEq6g ) is essential to this.

Call out scammers. You get hate in the moment, but time vindicates you. Even if you're some CEO with a "reputation" and need for "professionalism", do it anyway and be savage. People look up to you and your warning will be taken seriously.

Hybrid idea: optimistic + ZK, governance only adjudicates bugs between the two 1. Publish block 2. Wait 24h for fraud challenges. 3a. If no challenge, publish ZK SNARK, finalize. 3b. If there is a challenge, decide based on 2-of-3 of (challenge game, ZK SNARK, governance) https://t.co/KWuk4mZTQa

Present-day rollups are still far from optimal! Great thread by @sanjaypshah Still a lot of room to improve both fixed costs and per-transaction costs. Very much early days in terms of how many optimizations that are easy to find theoretically haven't yet actually been deployed. https://t.co/EsS0hgKxUp

Agreeing with the proverb "those who most want to rule people are those least suited to do it" and supporting DAOs being run by transferable governance tokens is a contradiction. Transferable governance tokens are all about giving *more* power to "those who most want to rule".

Sometimes the task of an intellectual isn't about trying to outsmart everyone or come up with the synthesis to the world's thesis and antithesis or whatever. Rather, it's about knowing when to just reaffirm simple dumb rules like "invading people bad". https://t.co/fxHkYkgLxa

Lots of responses around consumer sentiment and investor sentiment so far, but relatively little around worker sentiment. Surely worker sentiment is the most important here? The morale of the people actually producing stuff? https://t.co/jNMk0Dw2A3

@VitalikButerin
Is there any economic research on how morale affects economic growth? It feels like everyone agrees that in military contexts, morale is absolutely critical. So surely it should have a significant impact in regular life too. But I haven't seen anyone trying to talk about this.

Experimenting with gitcoin bounties to crowdsource improving my blog. Goal: add dark mode. (Note: read carefully. The requirements include actually going through the posts and making sure they look good in dark mode, and editing if they don't) https://t.co/YL1sghXK6U

One final thing on the visa ban. There's an objective side to this issue and an emotional side. (A short 🧵.) 1/

How should we allocate and price scarce resources on public blockchains? @GuilleAngeris, @alexhevans, @tarunchitra, & I formalize the multi-dimensional resource pricing problem in blockchains and propose a simple price-setting mechanism! https://t.co/voWF7cNhwg

Russians, visas and who gets to stay and who goes to jail. It would not be a stretch to say that most anti-Putin Russians currently staying in EU are somewhat concerned about what will happen to their legal status in the near future. Thread 1/12

@glenweyl
@VitalikButerin While overall I like this post. there is one very fundamental point on which I think it is just completely wrong and unfortunately much else turns on it. I hope you'll agree with me once I clarify and if not I am very happy to be on it as I think it is basically verifiable.

0. Fun piece of history about this: the deposit contract the community used was just the first one to be uploaded w/ the verified bytecode as far as I know, no one even knows who deployed it! It wasn't "official" until the community opted to use it https://t.co/ErwQQRst2s
