Oh man, I knew I was going to regret not writing a post this morning and here I am, 11PM and wanting nothing more than to go to bed. So just a quick note.
Bitcoin blew the roof off today. There are reports that an ETF is ready to go early next week and Twitter was just electric, I could barely get any work done.
I did manage to accomplish a few things. Spent some time trying to manage our serum-history indexers. I’d really like to get the front end behind some firewall or load balancer, so I’m trying to figure out how I can deploy it that doesn’t require me to manage a bunch of EC2 instances. Looks like we’ll be going to Elastic Beanstalk, but I’ve got to learn a bunch of stuff.
Dealt with a domain ownership issue the local Democratic party needed some help with. I think this is the last thing I need to do for them for the foreseeable future. Spent forty-five minutes trying to get through to a customer service rep who didn’t know how to do her job.
I asked a question at the Star Atlas town hall today and put CEO Michael Wagner’s feet to the fire about the schedule. He didn’t answer my question at all so I had to ask it like four times to get a non-answer out of him.
Perhaps the most fascinating thing that happened today was that I came across this article, Governance Mining – liquidity mining for human capital, it’s really brilliant. From there I went full steam into standing up a SourceCred instance and got it setup on Github Pages. It’s really interesting and I’m hoping to use it to distribute governance shares in the dao. SourceCred uses it to pay their team, so the grain that gets distributed is redeemable for a dollar, and they drop $100k a month to team members. It’s actually quite amazing and seems like it’s going to be a key piece of our governance moving forward. It’s got several plugins for GitHub, Discourse and Discord, and it builds an activity graph to figure out who’s got the most cred that week, and then drops tokens based on recent and and historical rankings. Here’s output that I generated today.
