Today marks the 927th day A.E. also known on planet Earth as 2 years, 6 months and 12 days After Ethereum. Five million blocks after its Genesis, the Ethereum ecosystem evolved into a planetary Community with hundreds of thousands of people connected by a constellation of projects and teams working on their dreams. It makes you wonder where the next 5 million blocks will take us.
It is still early, but the network effects can be felt already.
It’s no coincidence that Ethereum is the world’s first blockchain smashing through the 1 million transactions per day milestone, securing in the process more transactions than all the other blockchains combined. Moreover, when we look at the bigger Ethereum 2.0 picture we can expect continuous, accelerated growth towards infinity. Or the singularity.
Who knows? :)
The State of Smart Contract Programming
Ethereum changed the world by creating a distributed global shared virtual machine known as the EVM. Anyone can now use this virtual machine to run programs that handle real money and formalize contractual relationships via code. The promise is huge: we’re creating a new global and natively-digital economy based on software.
The Livepeer project aims to deliver a live video streaming network protocol that is fully decentralized, highly scalable, crypto token incentivized, and results in a solution which is cheaper to an app developer or broadcaster than using traditional centralized live video solutions. In this document we present the core components of the Livepeer project: Livepeer Media Server, Livepeer Network, Livepeer Token, and Livepeer Protocol, and describe their role in creating a cryptoeconomically secure platform for live video broadcast.
@jack @Twitter @BuyThisPlatform #Twitter Growth obsession : Well maybe @twitter should reject the "growth doctrine" and the constant needs for new metrics, new users, growth, growth growth and instead embrace Values, Cooperation and mutate towards becoming a real #platformcoop where People, Journalists, Organisations can create value while collectively owning Twitter, and invest more into "how to redistribute collective value", how to make twitter sustainable by making web actions you can do on the platform : sharing, replying, liking, retweeting, a monetisation that is powered by the blockchain and where People give and exchange value by their interactions on the platform.
Basically Twitter could become a large scale democratic experiment that would push the whole web into adopting more of this kind of collective ownership where the value created reinforce the whole platform instead of just a bunch of investors that have a vested interest to only focus on growth, return, profit.
Maybe I'm being idealistic, probably even, but until some big players don't switch, pivot into something that make sense instead of infinite growth race that make no sense, the whole web will keep being dragged into useless capitalistic approach that are bound to be unadapted for the future.
