vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin 17hIdea: stealth addresses for ERC721s. A low-tech approach to add a significant amount of privacy to the NFT ecosystem. So you would be able to eg. send an NFT to vitalik.eth without anyone except me (the new owner) being able to see who the new owner is.ethresear.chERC721 Extension for zk-SNARKsI feel like you can accomplish this with much lighter-weight technology.

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Aug 4The spikes emerge from good approximations to the circle ratio: 11/7 ~= tau/4 (or pi/2) 11 ~= 7/4 * tau (one full rotation plus 270.25') So tan(11) is high: -225.95 The spikes near 355 and 710 are "echoes" of 11/7 created because 355/113 is an *amazing* approximation of tau/211648411

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Aug 4What's even more interesting is that tan(int) is *not* a random number generator. There's fascinating patterns in the data. One way to look at it is: if tan(x) is very high, x is very close to a 90' or 270' angle. So if tan(x) and tan(y) are high, tan(x + 2y) is also high.11768581

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Aug 4I continue to find probability distributions with infinite means fascinating. Particularly how their averages *don't converge* as you sample more values. You can even replicate the behavior deterministically with "tan at integers" as a pseudo-RNG.8484153,122

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Aug 4Some quick theorycrafting of how much data space we can save by improving compression (especially in rollups). ERC4337 signature aggregation ( https://github.com/eth-infinitism/account-abstraction/pull/92 ) is essential to this.4248624,093

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 30Hybrid idea: optimistic + ZK, governance only adjudicates bugs between the two 1. Publish block 2. Wait 24h for fraud challenges. 3a.

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 29Present-day rollups are still far from optimal! Great thread by @sanjaypshah Still a lot of room to improve both fixed costs and per-transaction costs. Very much early days in terms of how many optimizations that are easy to find theoretically haven't yet actually been deployed.Quote TweetSanjay Shah @sanjaypshah Jul 281/ @VitalikButerin provided some theoretical estimates of what fixed and variable gas costs might be for rollups. How do theoretical estimates compare to the actual costs? I checked and got some surprising results Show this thread3802421,375


vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 28Agreeing with the proverb "those who most want to rule people are those least suited to do it" and supporting DAOs being run by transferable governance tokens is a contradiction. Transferable governance tokens are all about giving *more* power to "those who most want to rule".1,1222,0838,609


vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 27Also an important lesson for the crypto space. Way too much mental gymnastics goes into defending things that a 12 year old applying a simple unnuanced "if it offers 20% APR it's a Ponzi" rule would correctly reject every time.2692611,761

Surely worker sentiment is the most important here? The morale of the people actually producing stuff?Quote Tweetvitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 16Is there any economic research on how morale affects economic growth? It feels like everyone agrees that in military contexts, morale is absolutely critical. So surely it should have a significant impact in regular life too.

Balaji Srinivasan@balajis Jul 13Good review, go read. May write more, but my quick response (and I think Vitalik would agree) is that the network state concept is flexible enough to accommodate these proposed edits.

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 12It's amazing how some PoW proponents just keep repeating the unmitigated bare-faced lie that PoS includes voting on protocol parameters (it doesn't, just like PoW doesn't) and this so often just goes unchallenged.

It's not hard.Quote TweetNick@NickDPayton Jul 11Dear Proof of Stakers, The fact that you can vote on something to change its properties is proof that it's a security. Love, Bitcoin6517124,294

vitalik.eth@VitalikButerin Jul 7Motivation truly is important.

Ideology generates hypotheses and provides motivation, but then you check them against reality, and be prepared to dismiss or de-emphasize some as a result.13571470
