Iโ€™ll be watching the FIT21 bill debate live at 12PM ET on CSPAN. I hear the vote might be at 4PM. Any group chats convening to watch together?

Caffรจ Panna was exceptional. Mild vanilla and light sweetness. The high butterfat (visible in the picture) made for a perfect texture and milky taste. Honestly one of the best: 9.5/10

Notable vanilla soft serve in NYC: - Ray's Candy Store (East Village) - Softside (Nolita and Greenpoint) - Ralph's (East Village) - Soft Swerve (many locations) - the Solato machine (22 Vanderbilt) - Mr. Frostee (trucks) - New York Ice Cream (trucks) Not in order, I've tried all of these. Love soft serve.

๐Ÿฆ looks like soft serve or frozen custard, not ice cream. Unfortunately, soft serve is dispensed or extruded and not scooped. :'(

What do people think of Nebula for DNA sequencing? Being able to download all 300GB and reanalyze later, privately, sounds very attractive. https://nebula.org/whole-genome-sequencing-dna-test/

Performance reviews are daunting and a lot of work, but after you get deep into revisiting what everyone has achieved over the last year the pride is incomparable. The team ships. ๐Ÿฅฒ

Memecoins have been around for a while and haven't changed much. They aren't going away, but they won't be a source of lasting innovation either. Memecoins are just a symptom of other powerful and promising phenomena on the web: memes, social networks, permissionless verified computation, and more. Focus on those.

I just got a peek of the tech tree for Jolt and it's incredible: one of the best learning opportunities in crypto and we have a budget for external contributors. Jolt is the simplest zkVM by a long shot.

Interesting example of a bot that reads channel names, generates a generic platitude, and then posts it in the channel. Likely farming reputation, followers, etc.

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.

What are the strongest arguments for and against L3s? Assuming theyโ€™re properly secured (zk or fault dispute game).

How many Eddies have their name misspelled "Eddy" all the time? Sometimes I have people message me "hey Eddie!" in a group chat where my name is on the screen. Not sure how this happens.

When memecoins have a moment, people who know better make tortured rationalizations. Normally they might see casino behavior as zero-sum or short-term, but fomo can use the full intellect to justify itself with elaborate stories. gm to people building crypto's real potential โ˜€๏ธ

Here's a new protocol out of our research lab: a market for atomic data exchange. Could use this to create a market for expired 4844 blob data, or other witness data after statelessness comes to Ethereum. What do you think? https://a16zcrypto.com/posts/article/new-paper-alert-fair-data-exchange/

Two weeks left to apply to Crypto Startup Accelerator (CSX) for our NYC cohort later this year. The London group looks incredible and starts soon. If you have any questions, send me a message on Warpcast! https://apply.a16zcrypto.com/

Taxing by inflating the money supply is so tempting politically because peoplesโ€™ first instinct is to blame the retailer for price changes. Itโ€™s not intuitive to identify the problem in the money.

Everyone knows what a wheelโ€™s โ€œspokesโ€ are. The outer rims are called โ€œfelloesโ€ and were made with bent, heated wood in the bronze age.
