Crypto.com estimates that there are 580 million crypto owners globally, which means there is room to grow the total number of mobile wallet users by more than 20x from the existing base of crypto owners alone.

The number of mobile wallet users in crypto is now at an all time high of 28 million, according to the data from our State of Crypto Index. This is a good indicator that the industry’s UX improvements are bringing more mainstream users into the space.

Jolt Alpha it out and it's crazy fast with more optimization opportunities remaining than any other zkVM. Since uses a many-round polynomial IOP based on sum-check + a commitment scheme for multilinear polynomials, it hasn't had all the eyes on it (like other methods). Lots of low-hanging fruit to PROVE FAST.

Jolt is an insane accomplishment from gigabrains Justin Thaler, @samrags @moodlezoup @ncitron.eth. This is a significant contribution toward the endgame solution for blockchain scalability, and of course the implementation is fully open source ⚡️

Here’s what I think we still need in order to realize the full vision of blockchain networks. What am I missing?

Reminder: In the crypto market, speculation is a byproduct that is separate from its core value proposition. Just like real estate, art, and many other markets today.

Keeping crypto onshore is a matter of national security. Will the U.S. learn from past experiences like semiconductor manufacturing? We should not have to rely on untrusted foreign developers and suppliers for critical technology infrastructure.

Let’s close the gap between crypto owners and active on-chain users. This is more important (and presents a bigger growth opportunity) than expanding the total number of crypto investors.

I cooked up something cool this weekend: a native Vision Pro app for Farcaster. It lets you drag any channel icon out of the main window to pop new windows into existence. Hoping to add some more feature that take advantage of this like frame widgets. What do you want to see me add?
