The Boy Who Could DeFi: Meet the 13-Year-Old Who Built a $7M Money Manager on Ethereum – Decrypt

by crypto journalist
Arjun Kalsy was skeptical. He’d just received a LinkedIn message from someone named “Gajesh Naik”—a crypto developer looking for guidance on a new project. This in itself wasn’t necessarily suspect. As vice president of growth for the fast-rising Indian crypto company Polygon, Kalsy is used to working with coders across the world. Naik stood out, though, in part because he claimed to be 13 years old. “I was 100% sure this guy was a scammer,” Kalsy told Decrypt, “Like, no way. Really? 13 years old? He’s probably some big hairy dude.” This was about a month ago—and at first, Kalsy […]

Valid Points: How Ethereum Miners Are Preparing for EIP 1559 and the Merge – CoinDesk

by crypto journalist
This week, I pull back the curtains on how miners are preparing for Ethereum’s forthcoming fee market change, EIP 1559. Also, I explain the hidden lesson behind the rare cases of Ethereum 2.0 validators with a balance of more than 64 ETH. For most of these validators, the high balance is not by choice. The balances of Ethereum 2.0 validators range wildly from 30 ETH to 65 ETH. The main reason for the extreme disparity is not because some validators are more profitable than others or because some validators started earning rewards on the network earlier than others. Roughly 168 […]

Bitcoin (BTC) Vs. Ethereum (ETH) And Defi: There’s A Big Difference – Bloomberg

by crypto journalist
It’s kind of weird to say this, but after more than a decade of Bitcoin’s existence, there’s finally some consensus about what it is. Hardcore Bitcoiners liken it to “digital gold” — a safe-haven asset whose primary use case is holding. And even people who aren’t so into it more or less accept that narrative. Barely a day goes by where we don’t hear from some legendary investor opining on TV, saying something like, “We believe Bitcoin is an emerging store of value, which, like gold, can play an important role in a diversified portfolio.”  Nobody even talks about how it’s not used in […]
