I own Week In Ethereum. Editorial control has always been 100% me.  If you're unhappy with editorial decisions or anything that I have written in this issue, feel free to tweet at me. [Although I can’t answer right now to due to censorship, see below.]


Capricious Twitter censorship


One of my best friends launched Stoop, an Android/iOS newsletter reader. It uses a dedicated email and clean design experience to keep your information diet healthy. If you subscribe to newsletters, you will like it.

For reasons unknown, Twitter has locked my @evan_van_ness account. After Mailchimp arbitrarily banned me earlier this year, it’s sad to see web2.0 platforms making the case for their own demise. Web3 can’t come fast enough.

I’m sure that I missed things for this newsletter due to Twitter’s banhammer. Sorry!

Due to Twitter censorship, I won’t be able to tweet this link:  http://www.weekinethereum.com/post/180905114498/december-7-2018

Ecosystem

Two great client releases. Update now

Live on mainnet

  • Gnosis Safe is on mainnet - Android app (download link. iOS coming soon). Big step forward in UX and multi-sig availability, though obviously you should wait for it to be battle tested before committing large sums. (RuntimeVerification’s formal verification is in process)

  • Mintable: easily mint and manage your ERC721 nfty tokens

  • Ethertify: certification platform for IP rights and document signing

  • Aztec: working zero knowledge proof for confidential transactions on mainnet. Send Maker’s Dai to a contract, then withdraw to another address. The addresses are public, but the amounts are not. Roadmap includes: anonymous voting for governence mechanics, anonymous identity schemes and zero knowledge exchange

I set a goal to grow the subscriber base of this newsletter to 10000 by the end of the year. It’s at 7960 now. I need more people to double subscribe with Stoop so I can hit my vanity metric.

Housekeeping and shilling


My friend and former boss Tim Raybould launched Stoop, an Android/iOS app dedicated to newsletters like Anchor is to podcasts. It gives a dedicated email and clean design experience to read newsletters. I’ve only heard great feedback so far, so I want to shill his app.

I set a goal to grow the subscriber base of this newsletter to 10000 by the end of the year. It’s at 7900 now. That goal might’ve been ambitious. Need more people to double subscribe with Stoop so I can hit my vanity metric.

Note: The post-Devcon issue came out a bit late. Hence the short issue this week.

This week I also published "why didn’t my post make it into Week in Ethereum” if you’re wondering how I think about newsletter curation.
