What's the roadmap for the mainnet release? I know it's uncertain, but 1m? 3m? 6m? 9m?

I am not a fan of most equity factors, but if any equity factor exists, it is the value factor. Graham and Dodd, Warren Buffet, Fama and French have all highlighted value as an investment strategy. Its essence is the ratio of a backward-looking accounting value vs. a forward-looking discounting of future dividends. As we are not venture capitalists, but rather, stock investors, all future projections are based on current accounting information. To the extent that a market is delusional, as in the 1999 tech bubble, that should show up as an excess deviation from the accounting or current valuation…

In this video snippet, Freeman Dyson talks about an experience he had with Enrico Fermi in 1951. Dyson was originally a mathematician who had just shown how two different formulations of quantum electrodynamics (QED), Feynman diagrams and Schwinger-Tomonoga’s operator method, were equivalent. Fermi was a great experimental and theoretical physicist who built the first nuclear reactor and discovered things like neutrinos, pions, and muons.

Dyson and a team at Cornell were working on a model of strong interactions, the forces that bind protons and neutrons in the nucleus. Their theory had a speculative physical basis: a nucleon field and a…

I created an open-source contract and web-front-end, OracleSwap, because I want to see crypto move back to its off-the-grid roots. I cannot administer it because I have too many fingerprints on it to benefit directly. OracleSwap is a template that makes it easy for programmers to administer contracts that reference objective outcomes: liquid assets or sports betting. Users create long or short swap (aka CFD) positions that reference a unique Oracle contract that warehouses prices (the prototype references ETH/USD, BTC/USD, and the S&P500). The only users in this contract are liquidity providers, investors, and oracle. The single attack surface is…
