A summary of the crypto trends for the week.
Infinite Machine - history of Ethereum by Camila Russo
The book was released last week, I’m 80% through and loving it. Highly recommend. (I’ve been wanting a history for a while.)
It is a huge reminder of just how recent this history all was (2015 ), with insights into the stories of so many of the key players.
The hardback edition isn’t available until October in so I am having to read the Kindle version
Pure Austin Griffith bottled in a 3 minute video.
Inspiration for the buidlers and creators in us all. Well worth watching.
For those not on Crypto Twitter, last week some high profile accounts were hacked and tweeted crypto scams (mostly send x bitcoin get 2x back).
Forty-five accounts had their passwords reset and the attacker sending tweets.
Over $100k in USD was sent to Bitcoin addresses tweeted in the hack
Twitter’s update on the hack:
As well the potential for harm given Twitter use by world and business leaders, and the lack of end to end encryption on DMs, I have since seen multiple discussions on the potential of decentralized social media. We need multiple clients for it to truly take off, so layer 2 scaling for frequent anchoring of batches of user actions on chain will likely be required.
Disclosure: I am a user of Peepeth, participated in the crowd funding, attended the retreat & became friends with the founder
