Chia Network Announces 2nd VDF Competition with $100,000 in Total Prize Money

A few months ago we wrapped up our initial VDF implementation competition and were amazed by the excellent quality of the submissions. The top three contenders each came in at under one minute (the reference implementation was 169 seconds). Five other teams also submitted implementations which were faster than the reference. All of the submissions were open-source, and can be found here. The award total was originally $100,000, but because of the hard work that all of the teams put into the competition, we decided to award $2,000 to each team who submitted an entry, bringing the total prize money awarded to $116,000. We are proud to announce a second competition, challenging entrants to improve on our new reference implementation. The second VDF competition will be split into two tracks:SIMD and GPU optimizations allowedSIMD and GPU optimizations not allowed This is to help us separate the different kinds of optimizations. We expect that the entries which use the optimizations allowed in track 1 will be faster, however there is no requirement for a track 1 submission to use those techniques. This means that all track 2 submissions are also eligible for submission to track 1. The winners of each track will receive $50,000. Individuals and teams are invited to join. Entrants will all have access to the specialized computers in Chia’s laboratory. Specifications of the reference hardware and further technical details are ava...

Building a Sustainable Blockchain, With Your Help

Decentralized, digital currencies will soon evolve from being a futuristic concept to a mainstream reality. They’ll offer liquidity to those who live in countries with poorly run or corrupt central banks, and offer a universal currency for streamlined financial transfers. Currency not tied to the banking system is an idea whose time has come. But like any new technology, digital coins bring new complications. The biggest thorn in this new wave of digital money? Sustainability. Most digital currencies, including bitcoin, are created by solving “proofs-of-work,” which means servers working at full capacity to solve complex equations. This “mining” process consumes vast amounts of energy, and is not ecologically sustainable. Creating digital coins has so far involved a trade-off: We can solve many of the world’s liquidity problems, but only if we harm the planet to do so. But we don’t need to accept a trade-off like this anymore, because there are better ways to create digital currency. We don’t have to mine coins with energy-guzzling equipment, because we can create, or “farm,” them with a method that’s secure, broadly distributed and environmentally friendly. Proofs of Space and Time Digital coins are created via consensus, a mechanism that is used in blockchain systems to achieve agreement on a single data value among distributed processes or systems. With bitcoin and other digital coins, this consensus...

Chia VDF Competition Guide

Chia Network recently launched a three month long competition to create faster implementations of our proofs of time and get a better handle on its security requirements. The Verifiable Delay Function Competition (VDF, aka proof of time) is open to anyone, has $100,000 in total prize money, and is running until January 3rd, 2019. In the interests of making it as easy as possible to join the competition, this post gives an overview of the different tracks, as well as step-by-step instructions one how to submit an entry. The full details of the competition are available on our Github page. Purpose and Explanation The Chia consensus algorithm uses proof of space as its key resource. In order to create a secure consensus algorithm, however, proof of space is not enough. Attackers can grind on many possible solutions, or create a longer alternate blockchain, especially if they have a lot of computational power. To protect against these attacks, Verifiable Delay Functions are used to enforce real time between blocks. VDFs are deterministic functions which are non-parallelizable, and for which it’s possible to efficiently calculate short, easy to verify proofs. As long as an attacker can’t compute the VDF much faster than honest parties, the above attacks will not be practical. The VDF that Chia is using is repeated squarings (likely verified with a Wesolowski proof, but that isn’t part of this competition). This must be done...

The ASIC Resistance of Proof of Space

A recent podcast speculated quite a bit about the economics of Chia Network’s new proof of space and time consensus algorithm. Let’s discuss the assertion that there are optimizations in storage technology allow for the creation of specialized Chia farming hardware that costs an order of magnitude less than commodity disks. Even if it were possible to make such advantaged specialized hardware, it would likely be unprofitable to purchase storage solely for the purpose of farming. There’s $140 billion in storage capacity sold every year and a large fraction of that is unused and can easily be made to farm for Chia. Because Chia farming rewards will be much less than the replacement cost of that storage, work difficulty adjustment will make the reward per byte per day be substantially less than the amortized price of new storage. But even if all Chia farming hardware were purchased specifically for that use we believe the margin between specialized and unspecialized hardware will be within a factor of 2, and will explain why below. (Let’s set aside proof of time for now because that’s a different issue with a different set of dynamics and we are not at all claiming that there can’t be specialized hardware for that.) Some ground rules: The characteristics of a storage medium are:seek time,read rate,write rateprice per terabyte. Higher layer functionality of the file system such as inodes and indexing are a layer abo...


Alexander Hoeptner With Details on BitMEX Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

    The court filing argued that Höptner's termination was 'wholly wrongful and without basis.' Former BitMEX Chief Alexander Höptner has sued his former employer for $3.4 million for breach of agreement and wrongful termination. This includes $2.4 million for his second-year bonus and smaller amounts for remaining wages, relocation expenses, and housing. The claim, filed by Höptner's legal representatives - Kelvin Chia Partnership - with Singapore's High Court, alleges BitMEX of conducting a 'baseless' internal investigation against him to avoid payment of salaries and bonuses. The investigation in question is centered primarily around his several relocations to Hong Kong, Singapore, and Germany. The ousted CEO said that he was accused of misappropriating company funds. The filing stated, 'There were no objections and/or concerns raised as to the Claimant’s relocation and/or the costs that was to be incurred by the HDR Group in respect of the same.' However, Höptner was informed by BitMEX that the company might not pay his second-year bonus or reimburse for his relocation as a result of an 'extensive cost-cutting and restructuring program that involved numerous layoffs.' However, BitMEX co-founders Arthur Hayes and Samuel Reed allegedly launched an investigation into his expenses in late September, according to the court filing. The following month, the derivatives platform informed the exec of his termination in a letter citing the investigatio... read More

Terra's $2.8B Defense System — Luna Foundation Guard Audit Says Gr...

    Months after the collapse of Terra's U.S. dollar-pegged token UST, the organization created to protect the once-stable coin, the Luna Foundation Guard (LFG), published an audit report audited by the New York-based consultancy company JS Held. According to the report, LFG claims to have spent 80,081 bitcoin and 49.8 million stablecoins, which add up to roughly $2.8 billion to defend UST's peg.LFG Audit by JS Held Claims Group Defended UST Peg With $2.8 Billion in Crypto Assets On Nov. 16, 2022, months after the mid-May Terra stablecoin depegging event, the Luna Foundation Guard (LFG) published a blog post concerning an audited transparency report that claims the organization spent $2.8 billion in crypto assets defending UST. The once stable coin UST is now called terrausd classic (USTC), and it's currently trading for $0.02 per unit on Nov. 16, 2022. Terraform Labs co-founder Do Kwon also tweeted about the audit on Wednesday. 'A third-party audit of LFG and TFL's peg defense activity during May 2022 has been published,' Kwon tweeted. Terra's co-creator further added: Many of you lost a lot of money in UST - for this I am sorry. While the system was transparent and open source, I as its creator should have understood and communicated its risks better. In the report published by the LFG, it says that the technical audit was done by the New York firm JS Held. It defends both LFG's and Terraform Labs' (TFL) actions during the UST depegging event. 'LFG spent ~$2.8B (80,081 BTC and ... read More

Value Locked in Defi Slips to $74 Billion, Top Smart Contract Tokens Dow...

    Decentralized finance (defi) has been hit hard by the recent crypto market rout as the total value locked (TVL) across 118 different blockchains has slipped below the $100 billion mark to today's $74.27 billion. The TVL in defi today is down more than 70% from its December 2, 2021, all-time high (ATH) at $253.91 billion. Moreover, since December 2021, the top smart contract platform tokens have lost 70% in value against the U.S. dollar as well, sliding from $823 billion to today's $245 billion. Defi Continues to Get Slammed by the Market Carnage, Top Smart Contract Platform Tokens Record Significant Losses While a great number of cryptocurrencies including the leading crypto asset in terms of market valuation, bitcoin (BTC), slid significantly in value, smart contract platform tokens and decentralized finance (defi), in general, suffered a great deal. While Terra's LUNA and UST fallout primed the flames, issues with Celsius, Three Arrows Capital (3AC), and the lack of trust in algorithmic stablecoins have continued to keep defi fires roaring. Six days ago, reported on how defi and smart contract coins got slammed by significant blows and at the time, there was still $104 billion in value locked into a myriad of defi protocols. Today, the total value locked (TVL) in defi is $74.27 billion, down 70.74% since the all-time high 197 days ago on December 2, 2021. The defi protocol Makerdao dominates the pack with 10.43% in terms of the application's TVL of $7.75 billio... read More

BNY Mellon Enters Singapore's Digital Assets Market With BAS Tie-U...

    Blockchain Association of Singapore (BAS) on Wednesday announced a partnership with American banking major BNY Mellon. As per the MoU, the latter comes on board BAS as a strategic collaborator. BAS’ tie-up with BNY comes in the wake of a generally strict regulatory environment both in Singapore and globally, coupled with an increasing interest of institutional investors in digital assets. The advocacy organization for the blockchain industry appointed Richard Teng, a former regulator at Abu Dhabi Global Market as a member of its board in August last year. Cooperation for Greater Crypto, DeFi Adoption The two organizations will cooperate for greater adoption of blockchain, digital assets, and decentralized finance (DeFi), BAS said in a blog on its site. “Blockchain still is a relatively nascent technology within this region, and we are confident that with this collaboration we will be able to drive acceptance and adoption of blockchain technology and DeFi across the region,' Chia Hock Lai, Co-Chairman of BAS, said.

Stablecoin Infrastructure Provider Stably Raises Pre-Series a Round Led ...

    [PRESS RELEASE - Seattle, United States, 18th January 2022] Stably, a US venture-backed stablecoin and asset tokenization infrastructure provider, announced it has secured an undisclosed amount of funding in a recent Pre-Series A equity financing round led by Morgan Creek Capital, Jackson Fu from CREAM & Partners and Sunny Lu from VeChain. Other new investors included Hard Yaka, Bloccelerate, B21 Capital, Lou Kerner from Blockchain Coinvestors and David Choi from Taureon Capital as well as two existing investors, BEENEXT and Pay It Forward. The fresh round of funding will enable Stably’s 20+ member team to pursue several key strategic initiatives in 2022, one of which is rapidly tripling its engineering team’s size to further improve Stably’s Stablecoin-as-a-Service (SCaaS) offerings and expanding the company’s fiat-to-stablecoin gateway to meet growing demand across various emerging blockchain ecosystems, including non-custodial wallets and Web3 applications for DeFi, GameFi, NFT marketplaces and even metaverses. Currently, the more than $160-billion global stablecoin market is highly fragmented across nearly 100 different blockchain protocols and many lack adequate fiat currency access points, or “on-ramps,” for their end users. On top of this, the fiat-to-stablecoin on-ramping market itself still remains very inefficient. For example, it may cost between 20% to 40% to purchase Circle’s USDC, a popular US Dollar stablecoin, with cre... read More
