Just read Rippling's investor memo that they used to raise a $790M Series F. In their first line, they explicitly state the thing that's missing in almost every bad pitch I've seen from a great founder: they share the unique insight. Def worth trying. https://rippling2.imgix.net/Investor-Memo-2024-Apr-public.pdf

Sharing some trends I'm excited by from the W24 batch of YC companies: - Foundational models for hard problems (physics, materials, neuroscience) - The return of hardware (batteries, drones, robots) - AI infra and tooling (RAG, databases, memory, data labeling, testing)

Crypto founders should apply to @a16zcrypto CSX before Friday! It was critical to refining our thinking on everything from incentive design to progressive decentralization. For anyone applying, drop your one liner below! Iโ€™ll reach out to review apps for the first 5 people (and more time permitting)

FYI: a whale bought approximately 370 ETH worth of $DEGEN over the past two days for a grand total of 156,863,283 DEGEN... It's been in batches of 10-25 ETH at a time so driving a lot of activitiy. https://www.onceupon.gg/0x2f79978041392ebb7f1f741939e63e70c8e70100:0~100

IMO the most interesting piece of Drakula is how you can watch a video and then immediately buy the creator token on the same page. Friend.tech gated the content first which made it hard to understand what you were buying into, but the immediate gratification of buying after watching is pretty addicting...

Can someone help me understand a potential scam transaction on my wallet? I randomly received 0.41 ETH from an address which was followed by my account sending out 2,702 of what I assume is a fake USD Coin... https://etherscan.io/address/0x88F667664E61221160ddc0414868eF2f40e83324#tokentxns

If anyone is trying to bet on BTC ETFs getting approved by Jan 10th, best option on Polymarket is probably the "Will BTC hit $50,000 by Jan 31?" over "Bitcoin ETF approved by Jan 15?". Cost is currently 71ยข vs 88ยข, assuming approval means >+6% BTC price https://polymarket.com/event/will-btc-hit-50000-by-jan-31

Got a question about signatures. If youโ€™re looking to connect a wallet to an account with a signature, what would you use to prevent replay attacks? Farcaster uses the blockHash. OpenSea uses a random cryptographic nonce. Transactions use the nonce of the address. Which is right for linking accounts?
