How is ETH still sitting around $600? BTC is testing it's ATH everyday, meanwhile the very token which 80% of crypto is built off of is still 60% down from it's ATH

>> No.24482013

because only bitcoin matters

The rise will be glorious. Our time will come fellow mETHheads

Because bitcoin is very bipolar right now. If it can start to crab for a few days then eth will pump to 700 no problem.

So you bought at the 2018 top? These bags of yours must be heavy, then.

A total of 340,621 ERC20 tokens have been created on Ethereum
Less than 500 of these projects even qualify as being "legitimate" projects
That means at minimum only 0.014% of the projects launched on ETH are not scams.
The Ethereum ecosystem is 98.6% scams and spam.

It's literally worthless scamware

even if web3 and smartcontracts actually mattered to the average person in the real world (not just broke bagholding ethtards praying that it will make them rich) can you explain to a retard like me how that is supposed to be bullish for price action? You don't need to buy eth to build on top of it, or am I missing something?

People don't understand it. Sounds like an arrogant, cringy defense but it's true, the average person just don't get what ethereum is or why it's so important in the crypto world. Bitcoin is simple, it's just a token you can transfer or store like money, and that's it. Easy to market to boomers and zoomers alike. It's much harder to envision a decentralized computer with a functionality scope a thousand times wider than bitcoin.

>> No.24484466

right now ETH is accumulating the most amount of fees of any blockchain, including BTC. in fact, it's cucking BTC. as development continues on top of ETH, there will always be a need for ETH for fees. fees are just one use case. it's also a gateway to DeFi, altcoins, etc. additionally, when ETH moves to PoS and eventually EIP1559, ETH will become capped and then deflationary, so more scarce. in other words, it's going to be valuable as fuck to own.

>> No.24485069

I'm just as pro-BTC and anti-ETH as you, but anons need to realize that ETH's greatest power (it's pretty much a decentralized Turin-complete VM) is also its greatest weakness. The concept of smart contracts as a way to code decentralized applications is revolutionary, but the problem is that even the best software developer will at some point write exploitable code. Pretty much every week you can read about some elaborate exploit stealing hundreds of thousands or even millions worth of crypto from some dapp. And there's just no way to reverse the transaction. Once it's gone, it's gone.

>> No.24485252

Good dapps like Uniswap and Curve have never been hacked though, so writing good code is definitely possible.

>> No.24485434

tons of devs take the easy road and get fucked. software needs to be audited, then audited again, then have testnets and then finally launched. even still there might be bugs. bugs still are caught even on iPhones and in Windows. but devs pushing out good software following good protocol rarely have large issues

>> No.24485534

interesting, thanks for that

Everyone's heard of bitcoin. And that's all they know. Normies are perpetual suckers and it will take them at least another decade to notice the financial system being built on ethereum.

>> No.24485590

I think the way forward is to find a generally accepted way so that the average software developer can produce secure smart contracts. Maybe by using a subset of the language or by using some rigid framework or whatever. "Good" dapps can often be exploited as well. Just look at the OUSD exploit for example. The code was exploited not because of a sloppy developer, but because someone found a very specific flaw in the code and exploited it.

Can you say with absolute certainty that Uniswap and Curve won't be hacked in the future? I can't and neither can you. The code being open source doesn't mean shit at all. We need a mechanism which allows us to easily verify that the code is indeed not exploitable.

>> No.24485750

It actually was because the dev was sloppy. The contract was designed to accept only a handful of stablecoins. It did not check if the coin being deposited was one of those handful of stablecoins. this is an obvious mistake.

no one can say with absolute certainity that the crypto behind bitcoin and ethereum is mathematically sound. There is no mathematical proof that the discrete log problem is hard to solve. there could be a way to easily calculate private keys from public keys that we don't know about. however, anyone who can do this can take billions of dollars and become famous. same with uniswap and curve, which have a billion in liquidity. a billion dollar reward is enough for any hacker to try to hack it.

>> No.24485754

Billions have been poured into making iPhones secure, yet people have found a way to jailbreak all the phones up to the iPhone X, effectively rendering the whole security of iPhones worthless. It's not a big issue though; Apple's not going to lose a lot of revenue just because of a iPhone jailbreak. A bug in a large dapp can wipe out a whole business. Audits and excessive testing don't cut it either. We need a way to 100% make sure that code is not exploitable and as long as we're basically coding distributed Turing-machines that's not possible.

>> No.24485907

I'm quite certain that nobody will come with an efficient algorithm to the prime factorization problem in the foreseeable future. I'm not sure about Uniswap and Curve not being hacked within the next couple of months though. Maybe the code is really obviously secure, idk I have to admit that I haven't really looked into any of them. I'm just saying that with any non-trivial piece of software there's always the chance that it's exploitable and 99.9% of developers are not going to catch that bug.

>> No.24485989

the space is only 5 years old and most devs right now only hvae 1 or 2 years of experience.
it'll get much better. in 20 years eth devs will be competent enough to make unhackable software.

>> No.24485995

Jailbreaking is something completely different. It's basically people taking proprietary software and essentially making it open source. Not stealing money. There has not been a large scale hack of people funds from info leaked out of iPhones that I'm aware of. There's no way to be 100% of code with anything, blockchain or otherwise-- the only way to move forward is to audit, test and bug bounty ad nauseum.

>> No.24486121


You're prob seeing way more scamcoins then most people cause you're on biz. When institutional investors talk about erc-20's they don't mean indianpoopcoin

>> No.24486164

Stack buffer overflow exploits are something every C developer knows about. Yet, people find these kinds of exploits on a daily basis, even in code written by seasoned developers and in critical software such as the Linux kernel. As long as you have a powerful (i. e. Turing complete) programming language, people will write vulnerable code.

>Jailbreaking is something completely different. It's basically people taking proprietary software and essentially making it open source.
That's not what jailbreaking is at all. Jailbreaking is breaking the fundamental security mechanism of the device.

I think the Bitcoin blockchain is a good example of a technology which is secure enough that you can be almost 100% sure that it can't be exploited. The only way to exploit it is to solve a cryptographic problem which mathematicians around the world have tried to solve for decades.

I think ideally we would have a VM on a blockchain which is not quite as powerful as the EVM, where programs can easily be verified to not contain vulnerabilities, but still be flexible enough to allow people to develop dapps. That's probably not possible though.
