In It to Win It: Livepeer Teams Up to Make Magic in October
Teamwork really does make the dream work. From a multi-stranded collaboration to livestream Devcon Bogotá, to the pooling of hard-earned knowledge at the Web3 App Summit, October was a month for sharing progress and developing new skills — together. — How to Make a Stream Come True. — Building web3-native experiences to pave the road to full adoption is fundamental to Livepeer’s mission. So the Livepeer core team was proud and excited to take on the challenge of livestreaming one of Ethereum’s most important events, Devcon. The prep started six months out when, in collaboration with the Ethereum Foundation, Livepeer formed a team charged with making sure everything was good to go in host city Bogotá by the October deadline. It was a tall order. Challenges included setting up livestreaming from nine different rooms, creating workarounds for internet bandwidth limitations, and — just to keep everyone on their toes — a power outage during the event itself. But with 60,000 viewers around the world watching the livestreams (21,780 on the first day alone), all the planning and hard work paid off. Streaming was via StreamETH, a public-good project for the web3 ecosystem co-created by the Ethererum Foundation and Livepeer. Events were also streamed to YouTube from the Livepeer network. This combination ensured maximum coverage for Devcon while creating a web3-native experience. A full debrief on...
StreamETH x Livepeer: Livestreaming Devcon Bogotá to the World
Devcon is one of the most important Ethereum events of the year. That’s why, when Livepeer agreed to collaborate with the Ethereum Foundation to livestream the event, the team was understandably excited (and nervous!). Livestream productions at this scale can be complex, and many things can go wrong. But with a team of six people and six months of prep work, livestreaming at Devcon was a success. Here’s how: — The Setup. — Devcon was livestreamed via StreamETH, a public-good project for the web3 ecosystem co-created by the Ethereum Foundation and Livepeer. It was also multistreamed to YouTube via the Livepeer network. This allowed Devcon to take advantage of YouTube’s distribution and discoverability, while still offering a web3-native streaming experience that lives within the Devcon application home. There were nine rooms at Devcon Bogotá. Due to internet bandwidth limitations, only a single stream was sent out per room. However, primary and secondary streams from a data center close to the source stream were set up using Livepeer Catalyst. The StreamETH video player was able to auto-switch to a secondary stream if the primary stream failed. A similar setup was successfully used at Devconnect and ETHBerlin earlier this year. All content was pushed immediately afterwards to Swarm using Etherna, a decentralized and transparent video platform, and is available for replay on the Devcon Archive. — The ...
The Web3 App Summit: Building in Bogotá
For web3 to reach its potential, the community must support new applications bringing utility and value to current and future users. It’s with that goal in mind that Livepeer hosted the Web3 App Summit at Devcon. The full day of events included talks, panels, and discussions about the path to full web3 adoption through a new generation of killer apps, with a focus on social, creator, and community use cases. Here’s our summary of what went down at the summit — and what lies ahead for web3. — Panel: Beyond Blockchains — Building for Mass Adoption. — David Hoffman, Co-founder of Bankless (Moderator), Stani Kulechov, Founder and CEO of Aave and Lens Protocol, Evin McMullen, Co-founder and CEO of Disco, The keynote panel focused on the importance of culture, capital, and control on the road to widespread web3 adoption. The first question — “What does web3 need in order to make non-nerds care about it?” — drew a persuasive answer from Evin. In her words, the key is pursuing “a sense of belonging and delight rather than web2’s focus on money.” Stani agreed. “We can’t use DeFi without financial capital, but every single person in the world has social capital.” Currently this social capital is stuck on centralized platforms. The way forward? “To let users secure their social presence, take control of it, have the value from it — and then monetize and trade ...
India’s Web3 Community Building With Livepeer
India is home to a massive pool of software developers. In the 1980–90’s, nearly all developers worked at large firms. In recent years, however, India has enjoyed exponential growth in local startups following its Startup India initiative launched in 2016. Many Indian entrepreneurs and developers are transitioning into web3 despite a murky regulatory environment. Furthermore, Polygon’s $450 million funding round underlines India’s ascendency to one of the top international crypto hubs. Livepeer welcomes the next generation of Indian entrepreneurs and developers ready to build web3 video applications across this region. Meredith Tretiak, Head of Marketing at Livepeer, chatted with Vansh Gehlot, Co-founder of Dragverse, and Susmit Lavania, Co-founder of Huddle01, in a Twitter Space to discuss the web3 developer community in India. Below are some insights gathered from the discussion. — Web2 Walled Garden - Historically, almost all Indian software developers worked at large, established firms. Job security and high pay were enticing, and software developers made more than twice the salary of the average worker. Additionally, India’s education system was a “walled garden” that funneled students into these firms.“People in India, they were very focused on these IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) and IIMs (Indian Institute of Management)… people used to prepare 4 or 5 years just to get into these IIT a...
Why Livepeer Backs Hacks
What’s going to be the critical driver for the next phase of web3’s development? I can tell you in a single word: Innovation. We know that the next video applications to break out at scale will almost certainly include web3 primitives, because the economic incentives embedded within decentralized apps in their early days are superpowers for attracting creators and communities. But these won’t look like web2 clones. How the world interacts on the centralized Internet is ripe for change, as demonstrated by how different TikTok looks and feels to YouTube, even though its offering is essentially similar. Fresh use cases, plus innovative twists on existing ones, are the order of the day. This next stage of evolution will require the kind of inspiration and experimentation that is only possible when many different developers are able to test out fresh concepts that are rooted in reliable, affordable infrastructure. Analysts at Messari reported on Livepeer’s decision to double down on support of organic web3 growth, noting that “Instead of further allocating resources to onboarding web2 clients, Livepeer Studio shifted its focus to fund and help develop web-3 native video-enabled projects.” The numbers say this policy is working. More than 100 new projects were built on Livepeer in the first half of 2022 alone. The launch of Livepeer Studio, a complete solution for developers looking to add livestreaming, video on demand...

|Grayscale Ethereum Trust Discount Sinks to 60%, GBTC Down to 45%
The Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE) has fallen to a record discount of -60% as fears over liquidations mount.
The discount to net asset value (NAV) had been between -25% and -35% up until early November when FTX collapsed. It has since plummeted to its lowest-ever level this week.
The Ethereum Trust is the firm’s second-largest, with $3.7 billion in assets under management (AUM). It holds around 3 million ETH, which is about 2.5% of its total market capitalization.
The ETHE fund is down 69% over the past year, according to Grayscale, but it has gained 49% since its inception in December 2017.

Grayscale Liquidation Fears Mount
The asset manager’s flagship Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), is also in a world of pain. Its discount to NAV is currently -45%, also an all-time low according to Ycharts.
The Bitcoin Trust has $10.5 billion in AUM and holds more than 630,000 BTC. It is down 65% over the past twelve months but up a whopping 10,757% since its inception in 2013. Momentum for the GBTC fund could be reignited if the SEC approves its conversion to a spot exchange-traded fund this year. However, in the current crypto and regulatory environment, that is unlikely to happen.
Several of Grayscale’s altcoin funds are suffering even more so. Its Ethereum Classic Trust has a discount of -77%, while the Litecoin Trust is at a -65% discount. The ETC fund holds ...

|Diem Developers Raise $200M to Build Aptos Blockchain
Meta (formerly Facebook) threw in the towel on its grand plans to create a digital currency last year. Earlier in 2022, though, it sold the remaining assets to Silvergate Capital for $182 million.
The team behind the original Diem project announced they were working on a new blockchain called Aptos in late February. On March 15, they outlined massive funding round from crypto VCs.
The startup has closed a $200 million strategic investment led by Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), with participation from Tiger Global, Multicoin Capital, Three Arrows Capital, FTX Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, among others.
Building Their Own Blockchain
The Aptos team stated that they will not be licensing or utilizing any of the Diem intellectual property that Silvergate owns because they built their own blockchain, according to Tech Crunch. The company's valuation was not disclosed, but it is likely to be over $1 billion according to the founders, who said it was well “into the unicorn territory.”
Aptos is another layer-1 blockchain that puts it in competition with Ethereum and Solana. It uses a coding language called Move, with which it aims to attract a large number of developers from existing networks.
Aptos CEO Mo Shaikh, who previously worked on Meta’s wallet Novi, said he had close connections with the Ethereum community, which the team wants to be a part of:
“We want to be part of that ecosystem. We’re not here to necessarily compete. We want to complement [them] a...
