After SVET token listing on the Uniswap one of the frequently asked questions, which concerns SVET pool liquidity providers (LP), is: How To Calculate My Impermanent Loss (IL) With The SVET Pool?

If ETH/SVET pair is falling (a SVET token price expressed in ETH is going down), then, simply, IL is equal to the difference between the amount of ETH you committed to the SVET pool at the beginning of a given time period and the amount of ETH you might extract at the end of this period. …


SVET System Rating:

  1. Security: you have to evaluate project’s code vulnerability. Sources of information: search Google for publicly known breaches of its protocol and who — if any — officially audited their code;
  2. Velocity: you have to factually check, number (if possible) and appraise platform’s scaling / growth capacity, including, platform’s number of independent nodes, their rate of growth and number of independent developers working with this platform. Sources of information: project’s Technical paper, project’s GitHub, look for a number of registered project developers, their activity and qualification;
  3. Engineering: you have to asses platform’s Architecture and compare it to known analogues.

The Professor of Economics hears someone knocking to his front door at the midst of the night and rushes to open it with his wife in close pursuit thinking that Stanford students, confined for months to their tiny campus rooms, are rioting and he will be evacuated by the National Guard.

Instead, what our Professor gets from whoever interrupted his sleep is the news that he’s received the Nobel Prize. Now, can’t you see the irony?

If you can — you, probably, had taken Investing 101 in your University.

Indeed, the efficient-market hypothesis (EMH), according to which any piece of…

From the point of view of ‘traditional economics’ where prices of all goods and services are supposed to be described by ‘Cobweb models’ and depend on their ‘marginal utility’, and where Money presents itself MoE-SoV-UoA of those values, one of the most baffling issues must be the meme coins.

Here’s the list of the top 10 meme coins ranked by their current MarketCap:

Dogecoin (DOGE) — MarketCap: $46.74B, Price: $0.36162; MonaCoin (MONA) — $202.82M, $3.08563; Hoge Finance (HOGE) — $98.59M, $0.00024; Meme (MEME) — $55.12M, $1,968.43; Banano (BAN) — $17.98M, $0.01479; Garlicoin (GRLC) — $4.36M, $0.06921; Memetic (MEME) — $2.48M…

CoinBase listing might be a turning point after which worlds’ legislators will start to take crypto damn seriously and start to regulate it rigorously, Draconian way.

Let’s see what they can do (+ my comments):

  1. Ban all crypto (already tried, f.e. in China and India);
  2. Declare all crypto to be regulated stocks (partially, already tried in U.S.);
  3. Enforce ‘the travel rule’, when it is required to carry KYC history with every transaction (it is an analog to a ban because there is no way to do it technically without changing all underlying protocols);
  4. Require to KYC all wallets, or, as…

The long-term members of this group shall remember that 2–3 years ago I was repeatedly citing PWC Reports on VC investments into crypto-startups. At that time PWC was one of the few main-stream agents addressing crypto market fundamentals.

Today I can go to Bloomberg for that :)

Quote: ‘In the first quarter, 129 startups focusing on the digital technology known as blockchain raised about $2.6 billion … That’s more than in all of 2020, when they attracted $2.3 billion in 341 deals … .’

Compare to my post as of April 2019, which says: ‘PWC concludes that deals market has…

In July 2012, Bytecoin (implementation of CryptoNote) was launched. In April 2014, the Bytecoin blockchain was forked and Bitmonero (renamed Monero, meaning coin in Esperanto) appeared. In this new blockchain, a block was mined and added every two mins. Engineering is (b+)

Monero is based on the CryptoNote system and uses hashing algorithm called CryptoNight (requires 2 MB of fast memory to work, designed to take advantage of AES-Ni instruction sets).

Monero has multiple keys: a public view key (to generate one-time stealth addresses where the funds will be sent to the receiver), a private view key (is used by…
