You are losing money right now. Bank interest rates are so chronically depressed due to over a decade of quantitative easing that the general population no longer has an easy way to save effectively.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s first block of the Bitcoin blockchain is inscribed with the message “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.” …


What is TLA+?

TLA+ is a formal specification language that allows you to solve high-level conceptual problems in software engineering at the design stage. Essentially, it is a logical and philosophical language facilitating the discovery of obscure bugs in code before writing even begins. To do this, TLA+ draws upon concepts in mathematics to express specifications. These can then be used as a roadmap to build out successful, bug-free systems, no matter how complex they are.

TLA+ can’t be used to code programs, or power software. However, by adhering to the temporal logic and set theory it expounds, projects and teams can iron…


We’ve all been there. We arrive at the airport, head to the currency desk, and look at the bewildering array of digits on the screen. Names of far flung places; their strange symbology fascinating. Yet a quick glance over the screen comparing the value of one currency to another seems off. Wasn’t the exchange rate higher just a few days ago? Or was it actually lower? These numbers continuously change because of the Forex market.

Forex 101

Forex, or FX trading, refers to the foreign exchange market, an international market that makes the value of national currencies change on a daily basis…


Cryptocurrency is constantly innovating on the framework of general finance that was its precursor. Distributed trustless ledgers and auditable smart contracts allow for mathematical models — previously guided behind the curtain by a hand on the lever — to be enacted accurately and transparently.

This creates significant opportunity for exciting token sale models that expand beyond the scope of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), Initial DEX Offerings (IDOs), or Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs).

One such example is a Bonding Curve Offering (BCO). Rather than a singular starting gun on a coin’s entry into the market, BCOs seek to introduce a coin…


In its current state, Ethereum utilizes a Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus protocol whereby a group of network participants, also known as miners, play a critical role in securing the network and validating transactions on the blockchain.

These miners are in charge of selecting and aggregating network transactions into blocks, ultimately deciding which transactions from the mempool, or the memory within a node that holds pending transactions before they’re mined, they will include in these mined blocks.

Miners and other key players, such as validators and sequencers, continuously explore ways to earn a profit for their efforts in helping support the network…


Stablecoins are the new heartbeat of the crypto economy. As more of the world’s financial entities begin their march on-chain, the need for value-pegged crypto assets is becoming more vital. So far, stablecoins have captured over $110 billion in value, with the trend further growing, even more so in times of market-wide value dips.

Despite their sheer popularity, there’s a knowledge gap on how stablecoins are collateralized and how they manage to maintain their peg.

95% of all stablecoins are asset backed — whether that’s by the corresponding fiat currency, digital assets, or by other financial instruments such as gold…


What was once classed as a far-fetched vision of a trustless, inclusive, and efficient financial framework, is now leading the way to the mass adoption of blockchain technology. Decentralized finance (DeFi) has given many the key to financial freedom, with decentralized trading, credit markets, passive income streams, and secure capital storage playing a central role in the shift to decentralized models.

Ethereum — Where It All Began

Vitalik Buterin envisioned a blockchain-based virtual machine that would not be limited to P2P transactions, but rather birth an entirely new economy of decentralized applications governed by smart contracts. …


Decentralized finance has given the world a different, and noticeably better, way to trade and earn passive income from cryptocurrency. Before DeFi existed, trading of digital assets was conducted via CEXes (centralized exchanges) which retain control over private keys, trading parameters, user information, and fund security. There also weren’t as many methods to earn passive income from current token holdings, leaving natural occurring value add as the only means of securing portfolio growth.

DeFi’s rise preserves the crypto ethos of trustlessness, reforming an arguably stagnant ecosystem that was falling prey to centralized control. One of its core advancements was the…


Onomy Protocol firmly believes that the new paradigm of finance whereby centralized finance will migrate on-chain is not only inevitable, but imminent. Stablecoins are the vehicle that will onboard liquidity from traditional institutions with significantly less friction, but they may only thrive within a cross-chain environment. To achieve the goal of establishing an interoperable stablecoin economy, Onomy Protocol is building bi-directional bridges to the world’s leading blockchain networks.

We are excited to announce that we are now integrating our products with Avalanche’s ecosystem, making it possible to seamlessly trade stablecoin pairs and native assets between the two blockchain networks.
