‘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.
Bitcoin was invented in 2008. It has seen its ups and downs as a traded currency and of late it has survived major socio-political events and emerged stronger. At first, it seems like most of us latecomers have missed the ‘gold-rush (sic)’ there are valid signals pointing to an even brighter future.
Most of the crypto-pundits believe BTC will reach $1M at some point. Even those who are not hardcore believers think that $100K is not too far away.
Financial institutions who were again crypto, in particular BTC, in the past have come out in support of it.
In this article, we will look at how to tokenize never-before-seen words. Python’s tensorflow tokeniser can easily convert known words into tokens but what happens when you throw it words that it hasn’t seen before?
Tensorflow tokenizer is a very powerful tool. As shown in the article below it is very easy to get started with it.
The tokenizer can be used to convert a set of training data (sentences) into a dictionary where each unique word gets a different ID, so to say. Let’s look at how to create a dictionary out of words.
In Tensorflow, this dictionary is…
Tensorflow tokenizer lets you convert the words in a sentence into numbers. Each word gets an ID and thus lets you perform a wide variety of NLP tasks from sentiment analysis to sentence similarity.
Let’s say we have the following sentence
One plus one is two
The tokenizer will give an id to every word.
Google’s vision comes from the foot soldiers because it is inherently engineer driven. The role of a PM, therefore, is to make sure the engineering machine is well oiled. A product manager at Google provides its engineers with any non-engineering support that they might need. That ranges all the way from design to customer feedback. One of the PM’s crucial roles is to base their function on analysis and strategy.

To understand the kind of people they hire, one needs to know the culture they have. Google…
