Week in Ethereum News

Ethereum News and Links

  • This is the 1 year anniversary of the newsletter. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
  • As part of my work at ConsenSys, I’m starting a daily newsletter.  You can subscribe to the daily newsletter here.  I expect that a daily Ethereum newsletter will contain more quotes, context and commentary.  Think of it as an experiment, and I’d love to hear what you like and what you hate.  


Stuff for developers

  • Lotos: Buddhism on Ethereum
  • MediaSifter: “web interface for structuring and managing complex payments”

Want to be included?  If you are building your project on Ethereum, email weekinethereum @ gmail [period] com with 1) your URL, 2) sale date and 3) a brief but convincing description of how you are using Ethereum, preferably with a link to your Github repo.  Listings are free.  But please make sure to follow those instructions.  If you don’t follow the instructions, you likely won’t get a response.

WARNINGlist may include scams.  Do your own research and due diligence before putting value at risk.

[I aim for a relatively comprehensive list of Ethereum sales, but make no warranty as to even whether they are legit; as such, I thus likewise warrant nothing about whether any will produce a satisfactory return. I have passed the CFA exams, but this is not investment advice. If you’re interested in what I do, you can find my somewhat out-of-date investing thesis and token sale appreciation strategies in previous newsletters.]

New email address – I have to keep including this section because I know half of you don’t read it each week

I’ve joined ConsenSys.  Here’s a logo to draw your eye in case you were going to skip over this section:


I’m very excited about this move and will have significantly more to say in the future.  The newsletters should become more regular again! In the meantime, I wanted to make it clear so that you can judge whether I favor ConsenSys projects.

My charge from Joe Lubin is pretty similar to what Status has told me: keep telling the truth and covering the space objectively, even if the truth hurts.

The section where I beg

I measure the success of each issue by how much it gets upvoted and shared.
