Gitcoin Testimonials: Ethereum Foundation (web3py +py-evm)

Gitcoin Testimonials: Ethereum Foundation (web3py +py-evm)

Gitcoin Testimonials: Ethereum Foundation (Web3Py +Py-EVM) How Gitcoin has become a valuable signal in web3 software development hiring At Gitcoin, were grateful for the opportunity to leverage the superpowers of the open source community to build great projects. Recently, we got the chance to speak with Piper Merriam and Christoph Bergdorf about their experience with Gitcoin. Piper Merriam heads up Python development at the Ethereum Foundation and recently hired Christoph to join his growing team. Because all Ethereum tools are built open source, Gitcoin bounties on Pipers web3py and py-evm repos were valuable indicators in the hiring process. Christoph is the co-founder of software training company Thoughtram and a machine learning platform called MachineLabs. Earlier this year, he felt he needed to mix it up a bit. Christoph: Ive been running a business with my friend Pascal, for about 4 years, which took us on a journey to teach Angular to tons of people around the world. Its been a fun ride and I wouldnt want to miss a single day. With that said, over the years Ive become increasingly tired with this field. I felt like Ive been moving in circles for far too long and, frankly, it was time for a change. In search of something new to occupy some time outside of work, Christoph stumbled upon Gitcoin. Christoph: I heard about Gitcoin through a few tweets and Reddit posts. I liked the concept a lot, not only from a contributors perspective, but also as someone who maintains open source projects. I also like the fact that more and more people are starting to get exposed to crypto by getting paid in crypto first; not because they discovered it as an early investor. Since Machine Learning is pretty much Python dominated, I found myself doing a lot more Python during that t Continue reading >>

Ethereum Developers Conference (devcon3)

Ethereum Developers Conference (devcon3)

For those of you who have experienced Devcon in the past and are looking forward to this years event, it should be the best one to date! This year, we have dedicated convention center space that has been scaled up three times since the conference was first sold out in July. Due to successfully increasing the event capacity over the last three months, we were able to release passes to many if not most waitlisted requestors. Thanks to our amazing and resilient community and an abundance of enthusiasm, Devcon3 has two and a half times the number of attendees as last year. And the added Breakout Hall has enabled Devcon3 to include many additional presentations. The Foundation is pleased to continue to provide the main developers conference in the Ethereum space for a community that stands out for its shared vision and involvement in community-driven open source projects and beyond. This year, Devcon3 has reached out to more Ethereum community developers, students and university people than ever before. Additionally, the participant demographic is also the most international and globally diverse one to date. As a developers conference, Ethereum Foundation's Devcon event and agenda is designed to help inform, educate and address interests of the Ethereum R&D community, including those who are learning about the technology and projects supported by the Foundation as well as ones undertaken in the greater development community. While the Devcon program is technical by nature, all who wish to attend are welcome! Be sure to review the Devcon3 terms and conditions . Tickets for Devcon3 were completely sold out on July 10. In order to accommodate as much of the overflow as possible, we scaled up the event three times since that time. Ethereum Foundation Devcon3 event dates: Novemb Continue reading >>

Release Of New Multisigwallet

Release Of New Multisigwallet

Multisig wallets have been available since Ethereums launch. However, still over 13% of all Ether in total existence is held by just 2 single keys. The reason for this is that existing solutions have its own problems and do not address all needs of secure storage. We have addressed this need and are proud to publish an audited multisig contract with an easy to use interface. This wallet has been developed from the ground up to improve security for transactions by combining multisig transactions with cold storage. Many large ether accounts are still regular single key accounts we hope to changethis. The source code has been released on GitHub under GPLv3 license: A live version is avaialable here: Presenting the multisig wallet in Paris atEdCon The purpose of multisig wallets is to increase security by requiring multiple parties to agree on transactions before execution. This can easily be done with smart contracts on Ethereum. A smart contract owns the assets (e.g. ether and other tokens) and defines addresses of Ethereum accounts that own the multisig wallet. Transactions can be executed only when confirmed by a predefined number of owners. This removes the single point of failure associated with private key-controlled accounts, where losing or compromising the private key results in a loss of all funds controlled by the account. Multisig wallets were developed early on by the Ethereum Foundation (EF) to protect their own funds. Gavin Wood wrote the first implementation, which can be found here . Until today no severe vulnerability has been found and the EF has not lost any of its ether. The instantiation used by EF can be found here . Why did we decide to develop a new version if there is already a battle tested version that has been running for years? There is one m Continue reading >>

Ethereum Developer Resigns As Code Editor Citing Legal Concerns

Ethereum Developer Resigns As Code Editor Citing Legal Concerns

Ethereum Developer Resigns as Code Editor Citing Legal Concerns Feb 15, 2018 at 11:00 UTC|UpdatedFeb 15, 2018 at 11:03 UTC Ethereum developer Yoichi Hirai has resigned as one of the platform's code editors, citing concerns that a contentious proposal may be in violation of penal law. Named EIP 867 , the proposal defines a method to better facilitate the return of lost funds on the platform. Speaking on GitHub, the developer wrote : "Some EIP editors look nonchalant about legal consequences of this draft, but I have warned them, and I have no capacities to do anything more than warn them ... I resign from the post of an EIP editor." Writing his comments yesterday , Hirai said that the EIP may be in violation of a Japanese law named the "Unauthorized Creation of Electromagnetic Records," stating "I have a doubt that, if the proposal is followed in practice, the process might constitute a crime." The law in question deals with cases of computer-based fraud, in particular the unlawful creation of data "with the intent to bring about improper administration of the matters of another person," a legal document states . Last week, Hirai blocked the proposal due to its failure to align with the "ethereum philosophy," a requirement based on the code acceptance process, as detailed in EIP-1 . The developer has since retracted those statements, writing : "I was able to ignore my interpretation of 'the ethereum philosophy' but I cannot ignore the penal code." As previously detailed by CoinDesk , the proposal is led by developer Dan Philferfrom Musiconomi, an ICO issuer that saw 16,475 ether lost in the Parity fund freeze last year . Philfer's proposal has sparked controversy among developers, with some urging the public to get involved with the debate. The proposal is also said to Continue reading >>

A Blockchain Perspective On Microsoft's $7.5b Purchase Of Github

A Blockchain Perspective On Microsoft's $7.5b Purchase Of Github

A Blockchain Perspective On Microsoft's $7.5B Purchase Of GitHub The deal could shake up how blockchain and Ethereum developers choose to collaborate. Andreessen Horowitz wins big. On June 4, 2018, Microsoft announced its plan to purchase software development platform GitHub for $7.5 billion in Microsoft stock. The deal, which is subject to regulatory approval in the US and European Union, is expected to close by the end of 2018. This marks Microsoft's largest acquisition since it bought LinkedIn for $26.2 billion in 2016. Today, Microsoft explained its vision for the GitHub acquisition: "Together, the two companies will empower developers to achieve more at every stage of the development lifecycle, accelerate enterprise use of GitHub, and bring Microsoft's developer tools and services to new audiences." Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella remarked, "We recognize the community responsibility we take on with this agreement and will do our best work to empower every developer to build, innovate and solve the world's most pressing challenges." It's worth noting that GitHub boasts a community of 28 million developers and 85 million code repositories, and Microsoft claims to be the "most active organization" on the platform. Once the acquisition is complete, Nat Friedman (now corporate vice president at Microsoft and founder of Xamarin ) will become CEO of GitHub. Meanwhile, Chris Wanstrath who stepped down as GitHub's CEO in August 2017 will become a technical fellow at Microsoft. Both will report to Microsoft's Cloud + AI Group executive vice president Scott Guthrie . Even though Microsoft is bringing GitHub into the fold, it appears that there will be some degree of separation. If true, this would be a welcome relief, especially given the demise of CodePlex (another service for Continue reading >>

Yes, This Kid Really Just Deleted $300 Million By Messing Around With Ethereums Smart Contracts.

Yes, This Kid Really Just Deleted $300 Million By Messing Around With Ethereums Smart Contracts.

Interested in the challenges between innovation and law founder of www.lawandblockchain.eu Yes, this kid really just deleted $300 MILLION by messing around with Ethereums smart contracts. Last year, The DAO, a decentralized autonomous investment fund, got hacked for $50 million. In July, a hacker was able to steal $31M of Ether by exploting a bug found in Paritys wallets. Today, we have the worst hack yet, only this time, the stakes are even bigger and it is all just one big fuck-up. Two days ago, a user named devops199 opened an issue on Paritys Github, titled anyone can kill your contract , seemingly wanting to let Parity, a company that provides smart contracts for users of the Ethereum network, know about a vulnerability in their smart contract. The smart contract that he was referring to, concerns a multi-signature-contract, which is used by a large amount of people as a digital wallet to safely store their Ethereum. Apparently, this wallet had a bug in its code. The bug, or, better said, security vulnerability, allowed Devops199 to make himself one of the owners of the contract. This gave him the permission to do pretty much anything. What Devops199 did then, might just be one of the most expensive mistakes ever made: Essentially, he deleted the function of the smart contract that allowed the owners of the Ethereum to transfer their Ethereum. He locked the Ethereum up in the contract, rendering it completely useless forever. Still, it seems like he did not quite understand what had just happened. No No it wont. You pretty much just deleted a f*ck load of money. Essentially, everyone who used this multi-sig wallet, can no longer access their Ethereum anymore. Estimations of how much Ethereum was actually in these contracts range from $150 million USD to $300 milli Continue reading >>

1. Introduction Swarm 0.3 Documentation

1. Introduction Swarm 0.3 Documentation

Swarm is a distributed storage platform and content distribution service, a native base layer service of the ethereum web3 stack. The primary objective of Swarm is to provide a sufficiently decentralized and redundant store of Ethereums public record, in particular to store and distribute dapp code and data as well as blockchain data. From an economic point of view, it allows participants to efficiently pool their storage and bandwidth resources in order to provide these services to all participants of the network, all while being incentivised by Ethereum. Swarms broader objective is to provide infrastructure services for developers of decentralised web applications (dapps), notably: messaging, data streaming, peer to peer accounting, mutable resource updates, storage insurance, proof of custody scan and repair, payment channels and database services. From the end users perspective, Swarm is not that different from the world wide web, with the exception that uploads are not hosted on a specific server. Swarm offers a peer-to-peer storage and serving solution that is DDoS-resistant, has zero-downtime, fault-tolerant and censorship-resistant as well as self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system which uses peer-to-peer accounting and allows trading resources for payment. Swarm is designed to deeply integrate with the devp2p multiprotocol network layer of Ethereum as well as with the Ethereum blockchain for domain name resolution (using ENS), service payments and content availability insurance. Please refer to our development roadmap and our roadmap board to stay informed with our progress. Swarm is set out to provide base layer infrastructure for a new decentralised internet.Swarm is a peer-to-peer network of nodes providing distributed digital services by contrib Continue reading >>

The Governed Governing The Governors?

The Governed Governing The Governors?

A proposal for a blockchain governance model for Spacemesh. Governance is widely recognized as a fundamental aspect of a blockchain / cryptocurrency project but it is often poorly understood. To frame the conversation, we are talking about permissionless open source blockchains - and not about patented closed source blockchain projects. The basic question of governance is: Who is making the controversial protocol decisions that often modify fundamental blockchain properties such as block size, transaction fees and mining awards? Most p2p blockchain node code changes are not controversial. These bug fixes, feature improvements or new features are backward compatible and do not modify the core protocols in any fundamental way (i.e., they don't affect the incentive mechanism or the consensus algorithm). For these kinds of changes, it is satisfactory to have a group of technically adept core developers who have a broad and deep understanding of the codebase making all of the corresponding product decisions, such as prioritizing bug fixes vs. feature enhancements, encouraging contributors and collaborators to work on specific Github issues, merging pull requests into release branches, and managing software releases. Observation: community hard forks are a violent red panic button It is true that a permissive open source license allows a dissenting user base or miners to hard fork the project, accept or reject a controversial proposal, or appeal to the community to use software releases from the fork. However, there are a few major issues with this approach. Firstly, a community fork is a violent and extreme conflict resolution mechanism, as it splits the community and confuses many users who often do not clearly understand the considerations for using a controversial propos Continue reading >>

Unreliable citations may be challenged or deleted. The Ethereum Project's logo, first used in 2014 Ethereum is an open-source , public, blockchain -based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. [2] It provides a decentralized Turing-complete virtual machine , the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes. Ethereum also provides a cryptocurrency token called "ether", which can be transferred between accounts and used to compensate participant nodes for computations performed. [3] "Gas", an internal transaction pricing mechanism, is used to mitigate spam and allocate resources on the network. [2] [4] Ethereum was proposed in late 2013 by Vitalik Buterin , a cryptocurrency researcher and programmer. Development was funded by an online crowdsale between July and August 2014. [5] The system went live on 30 July 2015, with 11.9 million coins "premined" for the crowdsale. [6] This accounts for approximately 13 percent of the total circulating supply. In 2016, as a result of the collapse of The DAO project, Ethereum was forked into two separate blockchains - the new forked version became Ethereum (ETH), and the original continued as Ethereum Classic (ETC).
