Behold! Here are the top tweets related to Ethereum:

  • From VitalikButerin:

    We should also be building DEX bridges between ethereum and other crypto ecosystems. I’ve talked to @zooko about this re Zcash, though I think we can both work harder to translate the talk into action. Would love to see more.

  • From RyanSAdams:

    China will deploy it’s digital currency networkUSA will deploy it’s digital currency networkEurope will deploy it’s digital currency networkAnd eventually they’ll all settle on a credibly neutral asset network that none of them ownThey’ll settle on Ethereum

  • From wanchain_org:

    @VitalikButerin Our cross-chain nodes use sMPC to lock a certain amount of $ETH on the ethereum chain. The $ETH becomes a “mapping token,” WETH. If the user wants to transfer the value back to ethereum, the WETH is burned, and the original ether is unlocked. Same with $BTC, $EOS. More coming!

As for a news story related to Ethereum getting some buzz:

Ethereum 2.0 Specifications – Least Authority TFA GmbH

We identified two different issues with the block proposer system during the audit (Issue C and D) and suggested a single mitigation strategy for both….The Ethereum 2.0 team acknowledged the suggested mitigation, however, SSLE is still very much an active area of research….We identified an issue where a dishonest node is capable of sending an unlimited amount of older block messages to the rest of the network with minimal penalty, allowing them to overwhelm the network and block legitimate messages.
