BTC — ICP Integration and the Potential for Devs

BTC — ICP Integration and the Potential for Devs - Bitcoin integration on the Internet Computer is a feat of coding and engineering, a capability that supercharges the ICP blockchain to make it the first true “World Computer.” Bitcoin integration on the Internet Computer is a feat of coding and engineering, a feature that supercharges the ICP blockchain to make it the first true “World Computer.” Secure, protocol-level integration means that there is no need for insecure bridges between the two blockchains, thus opening up a never before utilized pool of liquidity for DeFi. This is obviously significant, as Bitcoin is typically treated by holders as a locked investment — in fact, close to 65% of Bitcoin has not moved in over a year. There is no doubt that this increased liquidity is worthy of attention; secure, fast interactions and collateralization protocols pave the way for a new era of trading. However, the BTC/ICP integration holds much more promise than just the potential of a DeFi boom for the entire crypto community. Thanks to the Internet Computer, Bitcoin can actually be utilized as currency, as it was at the beginning of its history. — $BTC as Usable Currency - Almost everyone in crypto has heard of the infamous “Bitcoin Pizza” story, when early adopter Laszlo Hanyecz bought a pizza for 10,000 $BTC back in 2010. And, of course, many people know about the Silk Road, a bustling market...

Centralized Cloud Storage vs. Full Stack Decentralization

Is a move to centralized cloud computing platforms like AWS better than full-stack decentralization and loyalty to the ethos of web3? We think the answer is no. Recently, there’s has been a whole lot of hype about the AVAX partnership with Amazon Web Services. Avalanche is the first blockchain to form a partnership with AWS, and the move could mean increased adoption of blockchain technologies by institutional investors. Institutional entities can only view this as a positive step for the blockchain industry and one that signifies an increased level of trust for the crypto industry. The move heralds an increase in developer interest in AVAX and the wider blockchain industry. Developing on AVAX has now become easier as a result of this partnership, as developers will have AWS support for launching and managing nodes on the AVAX blockchain. Subnet deployment is in the works to be added. A logical subdivision of an IP network, subnet deployment will allow both individual users, as well as enterprises and institutions to set up their own custom subnets through AWS. While this is the first AWS partnership with a blockchain project, blockchains such as Ethereum and others use AWS to power their networks. With that in mind, blockchain partnership with AWS was always more of a question of when than if; and it seems as though now is the perfect time. The real question, though, is if a move to centralized cloud computing platforms ...

It’s DAO or Never

How ICP Will Change the Financial Landscape Through the SNS On March 10th, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), headquartered in Santa Clara, California, announced a staggering $1.8 billion after-tax loss, all but rendering the bank insolvent. By the close of the week, the prospects of SVB securing additional funding had all but evaporated. On Friday, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation finally intervened and effectively shuttered the institution, designating the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as its receiver. Shortly before its collapse SVB was the 16th-largest bank in the United States, once again demonstrating that the moniker “too big to fail” will forever ring hollow. In a cruel twist of fate, the closure of Silicon Valley Bank was swiftly followed by the New York State Department of Financial Services terminating the operations of New York-based financial institution, Signature Bank, on March 12th. Predictably, for the second time in a week, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation was summoned to act as a receiver, highlighting the precarious state of the U.S. banking industry. Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank have now earned a dubious distinction: they join Washington Mutual in the record books as the three biggest bank failures in the history of the United States. Behold, the illustrious roll call of impecuniosity: 1. Washington Mutual, Seattle, Washington: nominal assets $307 bi...

ckBTC Sparks a New Era on the Internet Computer

Chain key Bitcoin will forever transform DeFi for the greater good Over the last few years, blockchain developers have explored new ways to smoothly integrate BTC (and the Bitcoin network at large) with decentralized finance (DeFi) applications. Most dev teams have focused their efforts on wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) solutions, but while WBTC does offer some benefits, these tokens (and similar knockoffs) have proven themselves to be deeply flawed — fraught with persistent security and counterparty risks. But take heart, engineers working on the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP) have found a way forward with chain key Bitcoin. Popularly referred to as ckBTC and powered by chain key cryptography, chain key Bitcoin may forever transform DeFi for the greater good. ckBTC is an ICP-native token backed 1:1 with real BTC, governed on chain by Internet Computer smart contracts. Think of ckBTC as a (highly fungible) twin token of Bitcoin — a 100% mirrored asset that uses chain key cryptography to own and control all underlying Bitcoin. ckBTC extends the ICP protocol stack so the blockchain behaves like a virtual layer 2 solution that is faster, less expensive, and more environmentally sustainable than the Bitcoin network. Note that ckBTC is not a bridged or wrapped token; these are important distinctions and point to the core of what makes chain key Bitcoin so valuable. The Issue with Bridges In February 2021, FTX, the now-def...

Understanding the Ethereum Virtual Machine Canister (EVMC): A Beginner’s Guide

Welcome to the beginner’s guide to InfinitySwap’s Ethereum Virtual Machine Canister, or EVMC! This article is meant for a general audience and requires no prior technical knowledge about blockchain technology. If, however, you’re confident you know your way around the basics of Ethereum and the Internet computer, please check out my much more detailed introduction, “How InfinitySwap’s Ethereum Virtual Machine Canister (EVMC) Works and Why It Matters.” Without further ado, let’s dive right in! — Smart Contracts and Solidity - You may have heard of smart contracts before — they’re digital agreements that are automatically enforced when certain conditions are met. The EVMC is a platform that lets you run smart contracts written in a language called Solidity on the Internet Computer (ICP), a blockchain that’s now compatible with Ethereum. Solidity is a computer language that’s used to write smart contracts on blockchain platforms. It’s designed to be a safe and secure language, making it hard to write code that could cause problems or security issues. Smart contracts written in Solidity are stored entirely on the blockchain, making them transparent, secure, and tamper-proof. — Architecture of the EVMC - Now, let’s talk about the architecture of the EVMC. It has four key components: (1) EVM API canisters, (2) the EVM Executor canister, (3) Signature Verifier canisters, and (4) the Block...

Here conference-goers were treated to live demos and dis...

Proof-of-Useful-Work is Vastly Superior to Other Consensus Mechanisms

The Internet Computer utilizes a consensus protocol called Proof-of-Useful-Work (PoUW), which is a highly advanced mechanism that is far more efficient than the consensus methods used by other first-layer blockchain networks today. Most layer-1 blockchain networks operate using the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism or variations of it. Examples of this include Ethereum, Cardano, Avalanche, Algorand, Tezos, and Peercoin, all of which use a traditional PoS model. On the other hand, some networks like the Binance Smart Chain and Solana use variants of PoS. — The inception of PoS. - The blockchain industry introduced the concept of PoS as a way for individual network nodes to participate in a network by committing (or staking) some of their own cryptocurrency (referred to as a network governance token or protocol token) to produce blocks and earn rewards based on the amount they have staked. This model is an improvement to Proof-of-Work (PoW), which requires significant expenditures in dedicated hardware and electricity. However, as PoS has become more prevalent, it has also revealed some challenges. One issue is that without the need for dedicated hardware, network nodes (or “clients”) can be set up anywhere, including on corporate servers and cloud-based infrastructure, and activated simply by staking some cryptocurrency. A large proportion of nodes on PoS networks are hosted in the cloud, which raises concer...

Decentralized Beta Testing on the Internet Computer

Decentralized Beta Testing on the Internet Computer. - By Matthew Beekman and Dan Ryan The expectations around Web3, decentralization and new innovative platforms include the ease with which a small dedicated team can leverage next generation development tools and platforms, like the Internet Computer. The result we are all looking for is an acceleration of the software development lifecycle, without sacrificing quality in our deliverables. The overhead of sysops, dev-ops and security is drastically reduced, being essentially baked into the Blockchain. That still leaves us with acceptability testing and feedback to deal with. Most teams don’t have resources to spare, and products may risk shipping after only in-house review. We think that, in decentralized environments, the community can fill the gap. The Internet Computer is amazing. As more developers, architects and entrepreneurs begin to understand its potential, all those here already will benefit; and that goes for our products as well. The people working today on products that might only be seen as utilities or tools are setting standards, driving innovation and clearing the way for everyone else. And we all want to ship solid, stable, innovative and helpful product. In that vein, just recently, there was a second iteration of the Motoko Bootcamp. The event exceeded our expectations, in terms of both execution and response. The Code&State team did a brilliant j...

Inside NFT 2.0 — A New Era of Programmable Assets

Inside NFT 2.0 — A New Era of Programmable Assets - Earlier this week, several DFINITY community members joined forces with Web3 project founders and NFT technology leaders for an online intensive event to showcase emerging trends in the programmable assets space. Inside NFT 2.0 brought together a distinguished group of panelists who charted a roadmap for the future of non-fungible tokens (NFTs), laying out a comprehensive vision to advance the industry in the coming years. We are nearing the conclusion of NFT 1.0, a period in which garish generative JPEGs — cranked out en masse to capture quick profits — will no longer captivate the attention of NFT collectors. The NFT influence game has forever been altered. NFTs are now obligated to evolve beyond collections of static images of cartoon apes. The advancement of the digital collectibles market will be propelled forward only by practicality. Today’s NFT landscape requires pragmatic applicability. Whether it’s establishing new revenue streams for creators and rights holders or enabling greater access to exclusive perks and opportunities, NFTs must contain a functional objective that transcends visual aesthetics. Effective immediately, programmable assets have no choice but to demonstrate real-world value and utility — from the tokenization of real estate to gated access to events — and far beyond. Thanks to advances in smart contract technolo...


Internet Computer (ICP) Sheds 5% In Last 24 Hours As Bulls Lose Aggressi...

    With more than $1 billion in market cap, Internet Computer is part of the top 50 cryptocurrencies according to CoinGecko. Although the crypto market is certainly bullish on the token, the positive sentiment on the crypto has not reflected in the charts in the past days.  According to CoinGecko, the token is down by 5% in the daily timescale. However, the bi-weekly timescale shows a 12% gain.  Bullishness Up, But Why Is Internet Computer Down?  DFinity, the company that launched Internet Computer, recently integrated Bitcoin to add smart contracts to the top cryptocurrency.  According to the Santiment insight made by SanTrends, ICP is top 5 just behind Ethereum in development activity. InfinitySwap, the ICP blockchain’s automated market maker (AMM) and staking platform,  has also contributed to the rise in development activity as it also integrated Ethereum, ensuring low fees compared to the top altcoin.  However, this strong bullishness in development was sideswiped by a strong drop in TVL, high-profile crashes in the crypto space, and economic headwinds produced the perfect storm for ICP to crash just a day before 2023 starts.  Security For ICP Is Up, But Not For Investors On-chain security of ICP has been boosted by its integration with BTC. With 2022 being very notorious with the amount of digital assets stolen, this security boost is highly appreciated by the community.  However, on-chain security does not guarantee return... read More

DFINITY brings new smart contract functionality to Bitcoin with Internet...

    DFINITY Foundation, the not-for-profit organization contributing to the development of the Internet Computer (IC) — a high-speed, internet-scale public blockchain — has announced today the Internet Computer's mainnet integration with Bitcoin, bringing smart contract functionality to the cryptocurrency. Now, the Internet Computer can serve as a layer-2 for Bitcoin where smart contracts on the Internet Computer can hold, send and receive bitcoin natively, without the need for bridges or other 3rd-parties. This provides a trustless foundation for varied DeFi and web3 applications seeking to code Bitcoin. 'Blockchains are like walled gardens, incapable of interaction between one another. When this comes to Bitcoin, applications, such as DeFi applications, that could benefit most from interacting with the world's largest cryptocurrency do not have the ability to do so. The Internet Computer's integration with Bitcoin is a true game-changer for the industry, finally bringing smart contract functionality to Bitcoin and enabling a whole new landscape of DeFi and dapp development never before possible using BTC.' - Manu Drijvers, Director of Engineering at the DFINITY Foundation With IC integration, bitcoin can be used for DeFi activities like yield farming, lending, payments, and more... This is achieved through the Internet Computer's enhanced Chain-key cryptography. The direct integration with Bitcoin averts the need for bridged and wrapped Bitcoin, a technique used to ... read More

Daily Pump & Dump | June 2, 2022 Crypto Market Report: BTC, ETH, ICP

    The daily pump & dump is a weekday update on the crypto market providing you with an abbreviated breakdown of price action related to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other trending altcoins.  Today's summary: Bitcoin retests $30,000 after a rejection. Why is Ethereum lagging behind the rest of crypto? ICP posts insane intraday rally. Bitcoin Retests $30,000, Can The Key Level Hold? Bitcoin price was fiercely rejected from resistance at $32,000, sending the cryptocurrency back to retest support at $30,000. The fall took BTCUSD daily to the middle-Bollinger Band - which is a 20-day simple moving average. The top altcoin is not representative of the state of alts as a whole, which have in some cases seen strong recoveries today.  Ethereum could head down further against BTC | Source: ETHUSD on Upon closer inspection, ETHUSD is far below the same middle-Bollinger Band and 20-day SMA as Bitcoin on daily timeframes. The discrepancy is demonstrated in the ETHBTC pair, which is at risk of further breakdown if horizontal support is breached. Internet Computer Boots Up 20% Rally One outlier across the market today is Internet Computer. The Dfinity Foundation coin posted double digit gains on the day. Much like Bitcoin is visually more bullish than Ethereum considering price action and its location within the Bollinger Bands, ICP looks the most poised for aggressive expansion. The Bollinger Bands are a volatility measuring tool. When the bands ti... read More
