The Crypto Digest #6 - On-Chain Governance, Tether and Being Human in the Age of Algorithm.
Hi there and welcome to the fifth installment of the Crypto Digest where I share a weekly list of my favorite articles and videos on technology, blockchain, futurism and beyond.
Enjoy your weekend!
from the ZCash YouTube channel
Vitalik Buterin, the Founder and Chief Scientist of the Ethereum Project, discusses why he had a change of heart about on-chain governance and how coin voting governance manages to fail in allocating capital.
a podcast by Laura Shin
Dan McArdle, cofounder of Messari and the creator of OnChainFX, discusses why tether lost its dollar peg, how the Gemini USD traded at above $1, and how this was similar to the time before Mt. Gox imploded. We also discuss the significance of the Fidelity news, plus McArdle's thesis on how Bitcoin would behave in a recession -- which isn't the conventional wisdom.
from the Chainanalysis blog
New data shows that bitcoin’s largest holders are a diverse group that may be stabilizing, rather than destabilizing, the market.
Jimmy Song explains what the newly launched Blockstream’s Liquid network for “High Value” Bitcoin payments is.
from Hidden Forces
As computer algorithms increasingly control and decide our future, ‘Hello World’ is a reminder of a moment of dialogue between human and machine. Of an instant where the boundary between controller and controlled is virtually imperceptible. It marks the start of a partnership – a shared journey of possibilities, where one cannot exist without the other. In the age of the algorithm, that’s a sentiment worth bearing in mind.
Until next weekend,
