Stuff for developers


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

Housekeeping and shilling

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.

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.
