@nikhilsaraf @email@example.com I'm genuinely curious here. Stellar seems very much intertwined with Keybase. And Keybase has recently had quite the popularity blow due to the zoom acquihire. Why would one bother with stellar? (again, genuine curiousity :D) Asking both as a user and a developer like yourself
It can be a little helpful to get a feel for what people discuss on there.
Not sure what other ways are good to validate these projects aside from actually running their product (if they even have one!).
@nikhilsaraf my development focus is on a cross-chain asset-independent trading engine - from an exchange point of view. No central aspects - all through the #i2p network (no clearnet transactions). This year we focus on BTC/XMR transactions.
@konrad that sounds pretty cool.
I’m sure the decentralized choice comes with a cost. What are some of the challenges/tradeoffs that you’ll face because of that? (technical bottlenecks, liquidity, custody, etc.)
We face all kind of technical challenges (like: #i2p is slow, high latency). Custody isn't a topic (no centralized instance - all local, all distributed, no business model possible). Liquidity - which liquidity? 🤣 🤣 We're alpha.
The high #latency and low #liquidity is going to be a tough problem, we’re still working to overcome that. I’m hoping that my work on the kelp #trading bot will alleviate some of the liquidity issues this year.
Thanks for sharing, look forward to following the progress of your project! 😀
Welcome! Your toots about Steller are great, thank you for sharing your knowledge.
