We are taking another step in making Lido for Solana more secure by announcing a bug bounty in partnership with Immunefi. To date, we have had two audits done on our source code. The first one has been done by Bramah Systems and the second one, which is ongoing at the moment, by Neodyme. This bug bounty is a step further in fortifying the security of Lido for Solana ahead of its launch in September.
The bounty amount of $100,000 could be soon revised to $2,000,000 if the proposal to bump it up gets accepted. The $2m proposal is getting…
Lido for Solana is governed by the Lido Decentralized Autonomous Organization (Lido DAO). Members of the DAO — holders of the LDO governance token — can vote on high-level proposals, such as whether to expand to a new chain. For day-to-day tasks, we have a much more narrowly scoped need for somebody to execute privileged operations: an administrator.
The administrator rights reside with a 4-out-of-7 multisig that consists of established validators and ecosystem partners. Last week, we successfully set up the multisig on Lido for Solana Testnet. …

‘Lido for Solana’ is a Lido-DAO governed liquid staking protocol for the Solana blockchain. Anyone who stakes their SOL tokens with Lido will be issued an on-chain representation of SOL staking position with Lido validators, called stSOL. This will allow Solana token holders to get liquidity on their staked assets which can then be traded, or further utilized as collateral in DeFi products. …
A bitcoin transaction is the means by which the ownership of some bitcoin value is transferred. A transaction is basically a record of how much bitcoin got moved from one address to another (or multiple others). In essence, bitcoins exist as records of bitcoin transactions
Structurally, it is a collection of inputs and outputs. Input means an address that contains a non-zero bitcoin value from which the bitcoin will be sent. Similarly, ‘an output’ is an address that receives the bitcoin. Inputs belong to the same owner, whereas outputs may not!
This description makes a transaction look more like a…
The invention of the Bitcoin protocol is neither a fluke nor an isolated incident. It is the culmination of 40 years of innovation in the fields of network theory, mathematics, cryptography, and algorithms.
A number of different research papers were required to happen before one could even think of bitcoin. For example, the existence of the internet as we know it today is based on a protocol called TCP/IP. Thus the papers that describe the design of this protocol are key in the history of bitcoin.
In Nov 2019 Ansel Lindner, host of Bitcoin Markets, tweeted an infographic labeled Bitcoin…
The total value of all cryptocurrencies combined crossed the mythic figure of $1 Trillion in the first week of January this year. Slowly, but not quite steadily, they are becoming a potent force.
Despite their meteoric rise, digital currencies have loopholes. By virtue of existing solely in the cloud, they bring along a host of issues. How do we know which digital currency to trust?
Even though the market’s confidence says a lot about a currency’s validity, how a currency solves a few technical challenges speaks much more to its validity than a market ever could.
A resume isn’t read. It is ‘glanced over’. A recruiter or an investor will typically spend only 10 seconds per CV. A rule of thumb is that less than 10 years of experience equals 1 page resume.
A resume is not an essay or a letter. It is neither a detailed report of what you did or a summary of your duties. A resume is a collection of peaks. Each peak is one of these four.
