Goldman Sachs accepte Bitcoin comme collatéral d’un prêt, by Christophe Auffray for Coins.fr.
“For the financial institution, BTC-backed loans nevertheless represent a further step in favor of the democratization of digital assets, and Goldman Sachs should continue its adoption. […] This is suggested by Damien Vanderwilt, co-president of Galaxy Digital. A French startup, Atlendis Labs, is also preparing the launch of a DeFi protocol for lending under-collateralized crypto to institutions.”
- Twitter thread on how Web3 can benefit from UCLs, by Alexis Masseron
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Ethereum, by Jon Charbonneau for Delphi
“All roads lead to the endgame of centralized block production, decentralized trustless block validation, and censorship resistance. Ethereum’s roadmap has this vision square in its sights.
Ethereum aims to be the ultimate unified DA and settlement layer – massively decentralized and secure at the base with scalable computation on top. This condenses cryptographic assumptions to one robust layer.”
- Two Thoughts Experiments to Evaluate Automated Stablecoins, by Vitalik Buterin

- How to Value DeFi Tokens, Bankless
“In venture capital and on Wall Street, we evaluate an investment’s expected returns by forecasting the asset’s financial performance and assuming it trades at some multiple of revenue or EBITDA on exit.
The surprising aspect is that we can apply this exact framework to many revenue-generating protocols to create an investment case for the traditional investor. In this post, I’ll give a teardown on MakerDAO.”
