Overheard on Twitter
Behold! Here are the top tweets related to Ethereum:
- From avsa:
The story so far: someone built a bank in ethereum, and it was so successful they decided to give users a vote. But the vote could be sold and soon it paid more than the interest in the own bank, and soon other projects started to pay for users with tokens too.
- From hudsonjameson:
I struggle to reconcile participating in the greediness of DeFi. Sometimes I’m unsure a net positive will come out of all of this if DeFi dominates as the primary Ethereum use case forever. However, I still believe Ethereum will greatly empower the disenfranchised at some point.
- From APompethiano:
#DeFi on #Ethereum basically created crowdsourced hedge funds with automated strategies developed by random community members vs. overpaid fund managers. This will make a lot of legacy funds (and crypto funds) look archaic when all is said and done.
For a longer news piece related to ETH that’s been generating discussion, check out:
Shargri-La is a transaction-level sharding simulator for protocol testing against users’ behavior on a sharded blockchain….We call a user active in a shard if they own ETH in that shard….Each user is active in only one shard….First, we simulate the case where a minority (33%) of users follow their wallets that recommend a shard with the minimum expected transaction fee (Algorithm 1)….Next, we simulate the case where a majority (67%) of users move to the shard with the minimum expected transaction fee (Algorithm 1)….Because of the higher base fee in crowded shards, as we can observe by comparing Figure 9 and Figure 5, the difference of transaction fee between switchers and non-switchers becomes smaller than Experiment 2.
