A summary of the crypto trends for the week.
Great Reddit Scaling Bake-Off Submissions
The submissions are in. (submissions closed 31st July).
We are playing for 400+ million monthly Reddit users, along with transactions for gaming, collectibles, social media etc which aren’t viable on Layer 1.
I have read a few submissions and am excited to see the overall results.
(paying 70+ Gwei gas on the weekend for low value transactions is painful and not sustainable).
Solidity 0.7 has been released. We will soon start to see the ecosystem tooling updated to support it.
Augur v2 Redo
Augur v2 launched but they quickly had to update the onboarding process due to current gas costs, so we now have a redo release.
Another example of the need for Layer 2 scaling.

Happy 5th Birthday Ethereum
A nice reminder that Ethereum is young. Everyone was new once, and for many of us, not that long ago. (3/5ths for me)
I love this blockchain visualizer, transactions are South Park style characters waiting to be included in blocks (buses).
