Sign up for Relayer Report here

ETHBerlin is happening from September 7th to 9th, and the entire 0x team will be there. We would love to meet anyone interested in building on top of the 0x protocol. Also, make sure to go to Nadav’s talk about the power of open financial primitives (Day 1 at 4:55pm).

As a bit of a throwback to another conference a long time ago in a galaxy far away, Will and Amir won the Consensus Proof-Of-Work award for $10,000 back in 2017. Look at these strapping young men (with Messari’s Ryan Selkis presenting the award).

Fun Stuff

I liked this article in the New York Times titled “The Secret to Ant Efficiency is Idleness.” You never want too many cooks in the kitchen.

I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries lately — some of my favorites: Waltz With Bashir, an Israeli animated war film, Icarus, which takes a deep dive into the world of doping, Maestro, about legendary DJ Larry Levan and Paradise Garage, and finally a must watch for any cryptocurrency enthusiast, Citizenfour, a chronicle of Edward Snowden and his NSA releases. I was reading the Reddit AMA done by Snowden and the two journalists who made Citizenfour, and found this very important comment from him about why a government should never have perfect surveillance and enforcement.

Amsterdam drained a canal and found items from the 14th century to the present. They found over 700,000 objects. Check out this time capsule on steroids.

Much love,

Rahul
