Week in Ethereum News
February 12, 2017

News and Links


Stuff for Dapp developers

Client releases


  • Video of Vlad Zamfir January talk at Stanford.  [All videos from that conference.]
  • Erik Voorhees: “I’ve found myself now holding a modest balance of Ethereum merely for the purpose of small (not micro) payments to friends. It’s just cheaper and more reliable. And I’m doing that with more allegiance to Bitcoin than almost anyone on Earth.”
    • Joe Lubin: “Ethereum has an ambitious, aggressive, coordinated and achievable roadmap to scalability. Bitcoin has an embattled, haphazard ongoing struggle to make the slightest progress on scalability. First system that demonstrates genuine scalability will quickly dominate.”


Project Updates

Token Sales


Dates of note

[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.]

This is issue 26, so the newsletter has been around for half a year!

Thank you for reading and subscribing.  It’s been a joy to write, even if occasionally some issues feel like work.  I’m thankful for all the tips, praise, links, and upvotes.  I’m also particularly thankful to have so many more smart people to chat with about Ethereum.  

Daily updates?  Since early January, I’ve been considering doing daily updates.  I may test it out at some point soon.  Let me know at weekinethereum@gmail.com if you would subscribe to daily updates.

Last week I asked for upvotes, and it worked. I appreciate it. The posts on r/ethereum and r/ethtrader both got many more upvotes than recent weeks.  The newsletter also added 56 subscribers last week, which is good mean-reversion to the long-term average.
