Vagrant lets you set up an ethereal environment for your project - destroy it, make it bug out, and just rebuild it. Ideal for development and testing! Let's set it up now and run Nimbus and Nim's Beacon Chain!
What's new with Nimbus? What has the team been up to and which parts are functional?
This post is part of the Two Point Oh collection explaining concepts in Ethereum 2.0, now known as Serenity. In this part, we'll talk
What is the beacon chain and how does it fit into the Ethereum 2.0 narrative? Let's dive into Serenity essentials again!
Ethereum 2.0 is coming, but it's super hard to fully understand. This series of posts will help you do just that - even with almost no prior knowledge!
Whisper and PSS are two messaging procotols currently being developed in the Ethereum stack - here's a side-by-side comparison that can help guide your choice between them.
Status Nimbus recipients of the Ethereum Foundation Scalability Research and Development Subsidy Program.
In the 4th wave of their scalability research and development subsidy program, The Ethereum Foundation has issued a grant of $500k to the Status Nimbus team to continue R&D on the Ethereum 2.0 client – Nimbus.
I was cleaning out my Google doc folder the other day to move on to greener pastures, and found this little brain dump that never made it to anywhere - it's fun mainly as a historical document. This was pre-shasper, pre-beacon chain, and for me, one of the first things I did joining Status.
Nimbus is a new Ethereum client built in Nim. In this introduction we'll tell you precisely what it's all about and get you set up with it.
Status.im is pleased to host the SWARM team's mini-summit at the National House Smíchov #Cryptolife Hackathon venue on Monday, the 29th of October in Prague.
As other teams pivot away from chat to focus on other parts of the user experience of Ethereum such as wallets and exchange, we thought we'd highlight why we think conversation will form the basis of a more equitable internet that is accessible, useful, and secure for all of us.
The question remains: how do we actually apply Liberal Radicalism? We're not going to convince the Fed that it should implement Harberger Taxes or Quadratic Voting tomorrow, so where do we start, and how do we iterate from there?
Vitalik, Zoë and Glen just published a paper in which they propose a mechanism and philosophy for a self-organising decentralised ecosystem of public goods. It's
- Light clients: LES and ULC - Desktop/Mobile mobile code sharing - Automated testing - Hardware wallet - Security
This is our wall of shame. The things we know we shouldn't be doing, but for whatever reason we are. The list came from a small group of us who met up in Basel, musing about what security should look like at Status, and what principles we all stand behind
