    As a reminder;#Ethereum started 2017 at $10. It started in 2018 at $1,000. Those are the possibilities a bull market can bring. If $ETH really starts to run, it’s a matter of time until we’ll be seeing $5,000+.

  • From loopringorg:

    We don’t think the world realizes just how much latent activity & creativity is ready to blossom on Ethereum once L2 is ubiquitous. Gas fees have suppressed much of it.Loopring has a pretty great view of what is/will be possible. It is hard to contain our excitement 🧘

  • From dabit3:

    I’ve been putting a lot of time learning Ethereum development and have been documenting it into one of the most time-consuming blog posts I’ve ever written.It will be teaching how to build full stack apps with a modern stack, the tutorial I wish I had when I was starting.
