Ethereum (ETH): Both a cryptocurrency and a decentralized computing platform

Ethereum is both a cryptocurrency and a decentralized computing platform. Developers can use the platform to create decentralized applications and issue new crypto assets, known as Ethereum tokens.

As you can probably tell from our site name, we are big on Ethereum. We believe this is not just a cryptocurrency for the future, but a way to use smart contracts that optimize business and personal finance. We are not financial advisors, but believe everyone should consider holding some Ethereum as well as learning how to use it in transactions.

The latest #Lighthouse blog post summarizes the state of #Eth2 research/engineering and provides direction for the Lighthouse project over the coming year.

A recommended read for anyone interested in Eth2 or running Lighthouse!

One of the better criticisms that came of 1559 this week is that the EIP itself doesn't do a great job of explaining _why_ it matters. Took a stab at it, feedback welcome 😁 https://hackmd.io/@timbeiko/why-1559

If people find this useful, I may open a PR against the EIP to link it.

It's a new year, and a new day.
