  1. So great to see @shahankhatch and @PegasysEng announcing that they will be releasing their new Ethereum client “Pantheon” at DEVCON4 this October (459K)
  2. Happy Birthday, Ethereum Classic! Let’s not make this a time for bitterness and name-calling, but for celebrating $ETC and its independence. The right to secession is hugely important. (31K)
  3. Thanks to @VersionOneVC and @CryptoKitties for last night’s Crypto Dinner! It was great to meet @bwertz, @MikeAtFasken and @kudry for the first time and to catch up with @lyotier, @rohamg, @dete73, @DeanSutton, @PeterRizun and @apoo. (8K)
  4. I really enjoyed the @Cardano_ article in @coindesk , @_lunar_mining! The “blackout” is over eh, @IOHK_Charles? CC @La__Cuen. Though you might not like @bytemaster7 being quoted, at least you can no longer claim that Cardano is being ignored! (7K)
  5. I have been working to build bridges in the enterprise blockchain community since 2016. I will be running for election to the @Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee (TSC) this August and I would truly appreciate your support. (6K)

  8. I agree entirely with you, Boris. It is an outrageous price. It would be a crying shame is DEVCON4 ended up just like Consensus2018 with rich people snapping up the tickets while the builders meet outside of the event. The EF does NOT need the money, so what is the deal? (5K)
  9. Never Punish Loyal Employees for being Honest (4K)

  6. Three articles from @mwilcox on why @ethereum cannot scale (8K)
  7. At the @EntEthAlliance launch event in February 2017, @shahankhatch and I co-presented the EEA Technical Vision. Then Shahan went off-grid. Few people outside of @ConsenSys know Shahan. Or Peter Robinson. Or Daniel Heyman. And many more. You will soon. Boy will you. (7K)
  8. Techcrunch – credulous on Basecoin/Basis Preston Byrne – critical, with deep knowledge ^ Pick your sources well, people. (7K)
  9. You CAN write any application in Assembler too, @ProfFaustus. That does not mean it is a good idea. Do you claim that your Turing complete Bitcoin Cash will deliver a competitive developer experience and ecosystem to Ethereum? That dapps will be more performant? (5K)
  10. During Nov/Dec/Jan I was doing a raft of digging to understand the history of the @ethereum Foundation. Here is my first “release” of some of that information. Please help me build this important historical record (5K)

  6. Don’t forget @VladZamfir’s warning, which is still in force. Many people make the analogy to the web and say that “It is like we are in 1993”. Nope. It is more like 1986, I think. Everything written in C. Printf debugging. Segfaults and memory leaks. (12K)

  11. I am 100% in agreement about 2018, @VitalikButerin (14K)
  12. So on February 5/6 I am going to Berlin. And I am going to give Gav, that beautiful, wonderful man who has been so instrumental to building this Ethereum dream a big hug, and I am going to kiss him on both cheeks. And I am going to give him a big bottle of maple syrup. (13K)
