Eth News and Links


Layer 2

Stuff for developers


  • Live video feeds from Devcon. You’ll likely need the agenda to find the talks you want to see.
  • EthDNS: ENS + IPFS everywhere and its DNS over https service
  • Unstoppable Domains built its .crypto domains on ETH
  • Ethereum on ARM. New images for NanoPC-T4, Rockpro64 & Raspberry Pi. Run a full node with Geth/Parity/Trinity. Plus: Status.im, Raiden, IPFS, Swarm and Vipnode. Or an eth2 testnet with Prysmatic.
  • Kobi Gurkan found a bug in the snark implementation of the MIMC hash function in circomlib. Thus, Tornado.cash had to hack itself, but everything is fine. They migrated everything to a new contract and updated the UI. Privacy was never lost.

If you appreciate this newsletter, thank ConsenSys

This newsletter is made possible by ConsenSys.

I own 100% Week In Ethereum. Editorial control has always been me.

If you’re wondering “why didn’t my post make it into Week in Ethereum,” then here’s a hint: don’t email me. Do put it on Reddit.

It’s amazing to me how many people email me when every issue has a link at the bottom saying not to email me to get in the newsletter.

If you’re unhappy with editorial decisions or anything that I have written in this issue, feel free to tweet at me.

This headline stays as long as so many people continue to link to old URL and not the right one: weekinethereumnews.com

Archive on the web if you’re linking to it: https://weekinethereumnews.com/week-in-ethereum-news-october-13-2019/

Follow me on Twitter, because most of what is linked here gets tweeted first: @evan_van_ness
