Introducing AskMirror: Search and Discovery for Mirror

Mirror is democratizing the future of publishing. In fact, some of the best writing in the world is posted here. Yet one crucial aspect is missing from the Mirror experience: search and discovery. Finding content does not need to look like this: Today, we are launching AskMirror -- an advanced search and discovery site for the platform. We built this to enrich your web3 experience and give you a place to find, read, and follow what you love. AskMirror uses machine learning to tag and classify articles, making it ridiculously easy to discover content that inspires you. Search for articles, publications, and writers. Mirror was built in large part by its community, so we’d love to hear your suggestions and feedback. What would make your experience on Mirror, and web3, absolutely epic? Check out AskMirror at askmirror.xyz AskMirror was built by sepana.io The decentralized web is the new Internet. From Bitcoin to NFTs, DeSo to the metaverse, the revolution is upon us. But an internet is only as good as its search.So why does navigating web3 today feel like you’re using the search engines of the 90s? Search today is siloed and confusing. This is why Sepana has taken on the challenge of radically improving search and discovery for web3. We believe that a simple, powerful, and intuitive search is critical for unleashing the full promise of the decentralized web. In addition to AskMirror, we recently launched cloutavista.com, an advanced search experience for BitClout, and the DeSo protocol. Cloutavista is the embedded search engine for BitClout.com, Diamondapp, and other DeSo projects. We're looking for fellow adventurers, curious minds, and passionate tinkerers to help build a better way to navigate web3. Ping me at daniel@sepana.io if you're interested in joining the journey.

如何为经济衰退做准备?

撰写:GREG ISENBERG 编译:TechFlow intern 除了加密货币价格下跌之外,全球金融似乎也要步入衰退浪潮之中,我们也是时候为这波经济衰退做好准备了。 我们假设你在这波经济衰退浪潮中被解雇,你需要着重考虑的是如何增加现金流,使你的钱包焕发生机。 TLDR; 1. 尽可能地减少成本 2. 尽可能保持高昂的精神状态 3. 稳定地做输出 4. 做 1000 美元/月收入的商业挑战 5. 坚持不懈地磨练新技能 6. 更新你的作品集和个人网站 7. 认识新朋友 建立关系 首先我们需要广交好友,正所谓无数四海皆兄弟,多一个朋友也许就多一个可能性。每周尽可能认识两个或以上的新朋友,问问他们在做什么,项目怎么样,需要你的帮助吗,可以以现金或股权或代币或混合方式发放工资。 尝试创业:在 2022 年启动一项每月营收 1000 美元的业务 梦想大得离谱,但也可以从小做起。1000 美元/月是可以实现的,将其当成一个挑战,与你那些有着同样创业目标的伙伴一同努力,这会让你更有责任感。 社区 让我们创建一个很小但具有凝聚力的社区(MVC),社区可以释放你的潜力,你可以向他们销售产品、服务或 NFT(盈利或非盈利),当你成为一个社区的领导者会让你觉得你是有价值的。 兼并和收购 如果足够有钱,或你已经筹集到那么多钱,可以尝试去购买一家公司,这会比你从头开始创建更加容易。在经济低迷时期,有大量的交易值得我们去购买。 第 1 步:找到一个值得购买的企业 第 2 步:为投资者创造一个公平的交易 第 3 步:拨款 工作清单 让待完成的工作成为你的朋友,太多钱会使人变得懒散,所以我们需要一个清单来警醒自己,在经济衰退时期依然保持着活力。 d27c5a3453b465237c27e5b9047e45c.png 投资自己 当然,在这段时间内,我认为最正确的投资依然还是投资于自己。在这段时期,你更需要丰富你的“武器库”,这是谁也无法夺走的东西,沉淀自己,才能在未来发散光芒。 发布作品 第 1 步:更新你的作品集 第 2 步:增加你对自由职业的开放程度或了解新的机会 保持高昂的精神状态 不要被卷入经济衰退的风暴当中,负能量会污染你的心灵。这是最危险的部分,你的信心是东山再起的关键。 原文链接 深潮 TechFlow 是由社区驱动的深度内容平台,致力于提供有价值的信息,有态度的思考。 社区: > 公众号:深潮 TechFlow > 电报: > 推特:@TechFlowPost 进微信群添加助手微信:blocktheworld

Fem3 Voices Volume 3: Diana Chen 

By Alli and Regan Earlier this year, Newstand published Alli's article, "Fem3." The piece outlined the importance of including women and nonbinary (NB) individuals in building the foundations of Web3. "Fem3'' argued that we all can, and should, commit to onboarding and retaining more diverse talent and voices into this space. That commitment includes uplifting successful women and NB-led projects, work, and perspectives. This series, "Fem3 Voices," aims to do just that. This interview series highlights the voices of powerful women and NB players in the web3 ecosystem. Each interview will be recorded on Twitter Spaces and accompanied by a subsequent article on Alli and Regan's Mirror pages. Last week we spoke with Diana Chen. Diana is the founder of Rehash: a web3 podcast–the first podcast DAO. Diana’s Journey into Web3 In her past life, Diana practiced as an attorney before quitting to explore and travel the world in 2017. While traveling, she started a travel blog, but found it difficult to make income as a content creator in the web2 world. Eventually, she found a fully remote content marketing agency that helped B2B businesses start their own podcast. While working there, she was inspired to start her first podcast “Startup Happy Hour,” which highlighted the stories of founders, executives, designers, and developers at web2 companies. At the time, the founder of Unstoppable Domains found her podcast and hired the marketing agency she worked for to help start the UD podcast. After a bit, he asked Diana if she would be interested in working for them full time. Back then, Diana didn’t know much about crypto or web3–it was a risky move to make, but she was confident enough to take the jump, and as she says, “the rest is history.” Rehash: Web3’s First Podcast DAO After spending some time with the team at Unstoppable Domains, Diana went on to work at Rabbithole.gg on their company podcast. Early into 2022 with over 150 web3 or crypto related podcast episodes under her belt, Diana started to reflect on her work: “I had always been doing it for somebody else, like I didn’t own any of the podcasts that I had been working on for the last year and a half.” Rather than recording her own content, she had always been making it for somebody else. She knew that “one thing Web3 is severely lacking is good content,” and she knew she had experience building content, and further, community around said content. The missing piece was ownership, which is part of what inspired her to build Rehash: Web3’s first Podcast DAO. Diana envisioned a podcast produced and owned by its contributors and listeners– members of the DAO could vote on what guests to bring on, what the structure of the conversations should be, what questions to ask guests, etc. She wanted to create a more structured and on-chain way for sourcing podcast content, and formulating strong community and ownership over the content being created. In April of 2022, she officially launched RehashDAO’s crowdfund. Diana raised almost 30 ETH, with each donor receiving the opportunity to nominate and vote on their “favorite guests, topics, and other aspects of the pod” in return for their contribution. Season 1 of Rehash was pre-recorded with Diana + guests that she invited after crowdsourcing ideas from her twitter community. There are 12 incredible episodes that you can find here. DAO members are currently finishing up voting on over 41 proposals submitted for season 2 guests on the pod. Eventually, Diana hopes that Rehash can become a larger web3 content and media brand for any content creator to be able to start their project within. She hopes members eventually propose and vote on new projects, and that Rehash can become a vibrant ecosystem of community-owned, community-driven, high quality content and creativity. Three Core Values of Rehash Diana is using the lessons she gleaned from her previous roles to create a clearly defined set of values for Rehash– she believes establishing cohesive values is an integral first step for all founders and leaders. As a DAO focused on content, she believes Rehash will face the same challenges many DAOs across the ecosystem face (onboarding, governance, legality, etc. to name a few), in addition to content-specific challenges. Diana does not have all the solutions, but she believes she can marry autonomy and guidance by having the guide rails be three established core values, which are as follows: Diversity: If you had to immediately name 10 people in the web3 space who are influential, who would you pick? Diana believes most people will list white men. Although she says this is no one's fault, she is building Rehash to make a conscious effort to include diverse guests and “build a version of the web that serves everyone around the world.” Diana specifically spoke toward this value of “diversity” and building a version of the web that serves everyone in relation to her experience as a woman in the space. Having worked in web3 for a substantial period of time, Diana is no stranger to the challenges that many women and other diverse groups face: “I think for a lot of women in this space, it’s hard to say no because you want to take every opportunity you’re presented with since a lot of women feel like they’re not presented with all the same opportunities guys are.” Ultimately, she feels people must protect themselves and their mental health first and foremost, and in building Rehash she aims to create a community and space that allows for, and supports that– both for herself and others. Gray-Scale: People, especially in Web3, think in extremes, but nothing in life is black or white. Rehash is interested in “discussing the nuances of different arguments, and not interested in labeling or putting everyone–and everything–into a box.” Shape the Future: Diana echoes the sentiment in this space that we are indeed early, and “our actions have a much bigger impact on web3 than in web2.” We all play an integral role in shaping the future. Diana believes that by clearly defining values early as a DAO or project,  “the right people will just come to you.” Closing Diana and her vision for Rehash are just getting started, and this article just barely taps the surface of the incredible ideas, insights, and wisdom she shared. If you want to listen to the whole interview, you can find the recording here. If you want to keep up with Diana, you can follow her on her personal Twitter here and the Rehash DAO Twitter here. Alli is the Director of Education of Events at Variant Fund, a first-check crypto fund investing in the ownership economy. Regan just graduated from USC and now is joining Opyn as an Associate of Community & Research If you have suggestions for future interviewees, feedback, questions, etc. please DM us!

The Real 3pool

Introduction I am a visual learner. Especially when it comes to data. Seeing shapes and colors helps me understand what is going on with a dataset as mathematics are being applied to it. I wanted to apply this to liquidity pools on Uniswap as a way of understanding how the liquidity in these pools behave at a fundamental level and to eventually test a hypothesis that I cannot answer without a visual aid. Uniswap pool visualizations are nothing new; graphs like the below are quite common: But uniswap is in version 3, right? So why not map the liquidity represented by these curves into three dimensions? For my purposes I realized this is exactly what must be done. Background - Concentrated Liquidity Uniswap v3 introduced concentrated liquidity. In a normal v1 or v2 pool, liquidity exists within the price space {0,∞}. Because the price of an asset tends to not fluctuate across this entire range, only a small fraction of liquidity is used at any given time. V3 allows for liquidity providers to concentrate liquidity within predefined ranges. This greatly increases overall capital efficiency, reduces price slippage, and introduces new complexities for users. Active liquidity management has become something of a cottage industry, with a number of protocols providing yield via active management strategies. Why I’m Interested In order to better understand these pools a visual representation in three dimensions is required (at least for me). In this article I will demonstrate how I got the data, how to map the normal two dimensional representations to three, and what I intend to do with these data. Part 1 - Get Data Uniswap pools are hosted on-chain. Pulling on-chain data about smart contract state is by far the easiest if done via The Graph. Uniswap, thankfully, has a number of subgraphs deployed that index the contents of the thousands of pools at every block. So, naturally, being a lover of The Graph, I opted for this as my first approach. Even If I needed to pay for queries on mainnet, I was ok with doing so if need be. The official Uniswap V3 subgraph was my first stop back in April 2022. Sadly, however, the subgraph at that time was out of sync! As of today, about one month later, the same is true. As for subgraphs on the hosted service, which The Graph still maintains, I had no options. Messari’s standardized subgraph is nice (and I will be using it for other projects) but does not provide the granularity I needed so was not usable. What I am searching for is not just general information about a certain pool, such as price and TVL, but the data on each and every individual position within the pool. So, I continued the search elsewhere. After searching I came across the Mellow Protocol. The project seems like your standard yield tool; the protocol gives users yield by using their funds to execute a number of strategies they have developed. Earning yield, however, was not why Mellow was a good find. Instead what drew me in was their python SDK, which comes along with access to an S3 bucket with a bunch of raw UniV3 pool data. They provide this, to the best of my knowledge, to give developers of strategies a way to backtest and visualize the performance of their strategy. It also happens to be exactly the data I want. Sadly, the only tokens with any data are WETH, WBTC, stETH and some stables. Given the size of these datasets it is understandable why they do not provide free access to many more tokens, as this could quickly become very expensive. The dataset as it comes is actually much more information than I need; it contains a record of all burns, mints (of position NFTs) as well as swaps. So to clean the data I filtered these unnecessary parts. Part 1.5 - 3D To get these data into a 3d form I need to perform a mapping of the data onto a coordinate system that I want. Normally, pools are represented with the amount of token0 as the x-axis, and the amount of token1 as the y-axis. This is a nice way to show a pool because then a function drawn on the graph can represent the price of asset 1. In my system I remap to a coordinate system where x = ticks, y = amount0 and z = amount1. A tick in Uniswap V3 is a unit within price-space where each tick equates to a 1 basis point change in the price quoted by the pool for asset1. In order to map to three dimensions I wrote a (very messy) algorithm to do the following: Traverse all rows points in the downloaded data If the row is not of the desired type, discard. Else, traverse the tick range of this row (each position has an upper and lower tick value, between which the liquidity is concentrated) add the liquidity of token0 (in token0 units) to a dictionary at dict\[currentTick\]\[token0\] repeat for token1 end Here it is implemented in Python. Note: to run this you need to first set up the Mellow finance virtual environment and install all required dependencies. I also use pandas here for convenience. the code for this (takes awhile to run; not optimized at all) from mellow_sdk.data import RawDataUniV3 from mellow_sdk.primitives import Pool, Token, Fee import pandas as pd returns a dataframe def download_data(t0, t1): pool = Pool(t0, t1, Fee.MIDDLE) data = RawDataUniV3(pool, 'data', reloaddata=False).loadfrom_folder() return data.full_df returns the cleaned dataframe def filter_data(df): surfacedf = df[['txhash', 'owner', 'timestamp', 'amount0', 'amount1', 'event', 'ticklower', 'tickupper']] surfacedf = surfacedf.to_pandas() surfacedf.setindex('tx_hash',drop=True,inplace=True) surfacedf = surfacedf[(surfacedf['event'] == 'mint') | (surfacedf['event'] == 'burn')] surfacedf['ticklower'] = surfacedf['ticklower'].astype(int) surfacedf['tickupper'] = surfacedf['tickupper'].astype(int) result = {} for key, row in surface_df.iterrows(): for i in range(row['ticklower'],row['tickupper']): try: if result[i] != None: resulti += row['amount0'] resulti += row['amount1'] except KeyError: liquidity_point = {'a0':row['amount0'], 'a1':row['amount1']} result[i] = liquidity_point df_map = pd.DataFrame(result) dfmap = dfmap.transpose() dfmap.resetindex(inplace=True) The result of doing this, after a few minutes, is a dictionary that is indexed by tick (our x axis) with the total amount of liquidity, across all providers, at each tick. I exported this to a csv file with about 1.7 million rows. Part 2 - Visualizing I naively assumed that I could just pipe these data into matplotlib quickly and have a nice looking graph made for me all within python. I found out this is possible most of the time, but 1.7 million data points is simply too much for the system to handle. Matplotlib in fact performs best, I learned with less than 500,000 datapoints (thanks stack overflow!). This is because ultimately matplotlib is not a big data software package. It was never made for stresses like this, even if your computer can handle it. So I turned to more serious (I think) scientific software. Typically there is a poorly documented, open source package from the 90s that has terrible UX that can get the job done (if you can get it to compile). So I went to stack overflow again and found someone was asking the same question. Thankfully a number of solutions were provided and I settled on VisIt, a more advanced visualization software than what I had been trying to use before. Since my data were already in csv format I decided to just use the GUI version to quickly see what I was working with. With some experimentation and my computer crashing on me a handful of times I finally got it to work. Part 2.5 - The Result First impression of the WBTC-WETH pool is that it looks like what I would expect: Really flat for a long time, then a sudden spike upwards in the middle which must represent the current price of the asset being traded. Makes sense for this pool since BTC-ETH tend to trade in a range due to their mutual correlation. BTC per ETH (notice it hasn't fluctuated much in ETH terms) (source: Spookyswap) excuse the red square From far away it looks like how one would expect, but zooming in yielded some more interesting information. When looked at from the other direction, it becomes clear there is a sort of loop at work: You can reduce the plot to two dimensions to see it better: For the pair USDC/WETH, which is far more volatile than ETH/BTC, the looping effect is far more pronounced. In fact, it forms almost an infinity symbol by doubling back on itself. What was also interesting about this one compared with WETH/WBTC was that the tails of the pool were far shorter. So much shorter, in fact, that zooming in to capture the screenshot with the somewhat touchy zoom function in this program became something of a challenge: It is important to remember that inside this space that I have defined, each dot does not represent a single LP position but rather what the token0 and token1 balances are for any given tick. So, the transform that has taken place remaps our thinking from user terms to tick terms. And makes a pretty neat looking graph. Ultimately I hope to explore more deeply what causes different types of shapes and eventually have a comprehensive collection of various liquidity pools, from high to low liquidity, to understand what these geometries mean. Conclusion and Future Work My hypothesis, which inspired doing this in the first place, was the following: Liquidity pools in Uniswap v3 can be represented as three dimensional surfaces in tick-liquidity space. Trading volume can then be represented as a collection of vectors that are orthogonal to the tick axis (the tick value of a swap is undefined) moving through the surface of liquidity, generating a flux F. The enclosed loop shape of the pool seems indicative of this happening, but I still need to find another way to represent the volume in this software. Then, F should correspond to some property of the liquidity pool. Flux mathematically in this case would be the surface integral of the volume function V over the surface of liquidity. Qualitatively, Flux should be related in some way to the utilization or efficiency of the liquidity pool. In other words, if all the flux passes in and out of a tiny loop, the pool is efficient, and else it is inefficient. Is any of this true? No idea. Next time, I will attempt to model the flux and see what happens. DISCLAIMER: Nothing about this article is an endorsement of Mellow Protocol.

Hi . . . I'm Jhamar

My name is Jhamar Youngblood. I am the founder and Community Assistant of TBA, an invite-only/tokengated community that uses Web3 technologies to build digital and IRL experiences for people who identify as compassionate, authentic, and ambitious. Here is my journey into web3 . . . In 1998 my mother was one of the first people in our project building to own a personal computer. I was 10 years old and I didn’t know what to do with it, so I spent most of my time in AOL Chat Rooms communicating with people of all cultures and backgrounds. I then spent the next 15 years being the first person in all of my friend groups and family to join every new social online application; from Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more. In 2013 while in graduate school at Dartmouth College, I started working on a new communication experience I named Blastchat. The goal of Blastchat was to be the solution that solves the four main problems web 2.0’s social communities face; clutter, trolls, incentives, and algorithms. In 2018 I partnered with the Kik messaging app and their cryptocurrency $KIN to become the first app in Apple’s App Store to allow people to earn and spend cryptocurrency. Users were earning $KIN in Blastchat and using the earned $KIN to purchase Uber and Airbnb gift cards. Unfortunately, I withdrew Blastchat from the KIN program because most of the KIN community were libertarians and my existing community started calling my app “The Trump App”. In 2021 I got together with three other women friends and launched TBA DAO. I then rebranded my app as TBA, the official communication app for members of TBA DAO. After sharing my experiences from working with $KIN with the core TBA team, we decided that our organization will be invite-only and tokengated. In 2022 our goal is to launch our own social token and we would love your help. What is TBA DAO? Founded in 2021, TBA DAO is an invite-only digital organization that uses Web3 technologies to build digital and IRL experiences for people who identify as compassionate, authentic, and ambitious. We are taking a gradual path towards decentralization. What is our mission? Unite compassionate, authentic, and ambitious people, inspire them and provide the resources needed to build their communities. What is our tagline/slogan? If we can do it, so can you! What is our long-term goal? We want to onboard 100+ million people to Web3. What is the gender breakdown of our core team? 3 women (Lexy, Nyla, Irene) 1 man (Me) We want to work with as many women as we possibly can. What is the member breakdown of our community? 4 Core Members 3 Contributors (and counting) 25 Community Members (and counting) Where are our members located? America, Africa, India What is the problem we are trying to solve? We noticed the lack of compassion, authenticity, and ambition in our society. Our solution is to unite compassionate, authentic, and ambitious people, inspire them and provide the resources needed to build their own communities. We will do this by creating online and offline experiences where our members can come together, share ideas, and exist as their true selves. Our initial target community is musicians who are looking to use Web3 technology to share their music and build their communities. What progress have we made since launch? Grew our community from 4 to 25+ members Hosted 9 physical events that were attended by 200+ unique people Launched our Freedom Flower NFT Collection When and why are we launching our social token? In September of 2022, we launch our social token to kickstart our economy for the overall TBA community. This will allow our members to earn our social token to purchase our Freedom Flower NFTs and Freedom Flower Clothing. It will also allow us to incentivize our core members and contributors. Our long-term goal is to create an economy that will allow our community to offer goods and services to each other in exchange for our social token. It will be like our own Craigslist. How can you help us? As we plan to launch our token we will need advisors as added support to help us ensure that we are not wasting any time, resources, and energy. If you have any interest in community building, tokenomics, fundraising, smart contracts, or culture, please let us know. How will you be rewarded? You will be rewarded with an Advisor Freedom Flower NFT. These NFTs are a limited collection that will only be rewarded to advisors of TBA. View the current trust collection here: www.tbadao.com/trust To learn more about TBA visit www.tbadao.com and to get in touch please email us at hi@tbadao.com or email me at jhamaryoungblood@gmail.com. Thanks for reading and chat soon! **Jhamar Community Assistant TBA**
