https://arxiv.org/pdf/2111.08893.pdf "Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have emerged as a way to collect digital art as well as an investment vehicle. Despite having been popularized only recently, over the last year, NFT markets have witnessed several high-profile (and high-value) asset sales and a tremendous growth in trading volumes. However, these marketplaces have not yet received much scrutiny. Most academic researchers have analyzed decentralized finance (DeFi) protocols, studied attacks on those protocols, and developed automated techniques to detect smart contract vulnerabilities. To the best of our knowledge, we are the first to study the market dynamics and security issues of the multi-billion dollar NFT ecosystem. In this paper, we first present a systematic overview of how the NFT ecosystem works, and we identify three major actors: marketplaces, external entities, and users. We study the design of the underlying protocols of the top 8 marketplaces (ranked by transaction volume) and discover security, privacy, and usability issues. Many of these issues can lead to substantial financial losses. During our analysis, we reported 5 security bugs in 3 top marketplaces; all of them have been confirmed by the affected parties. Moreover, we provide insights on how the entities external to the blockchain are able to interfere with NFT markets, leading to serious consequences. We also collect a large amount of asset and event data pertaining to the NFTs being traded in the examined marketplaces, and we quantify malicious trading behaviors carried out by users under the cloak of anonymity. Finally, we studied the 15 most expensive NFT sales to date, and discovered discrepancies in at least half of these transactions."

Terra (LUNA) - I'm preparing to invest a chunk into LUNA, but instead of just investing and letting it go I'm attempting to learn how to actually utilize the coin & platform so here are some helpful videos that I thought I'd share as I go.. How to get WLUNA to native LUNA and onto Terra Station (native wallet) - look up on your own how to acquire wrapped luna (smart token that tracks price of LUNA). The way I'm doing it is purchasing through Gemini. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km5735ekklg Here are five different ways you can start parting your LUNA to work on the ecosystem. I will absolutely be converting a portion of my cash to UST (Terra's stable coin) and staking the UST on Anchor for 19.47%. Will circle back on other methods and cool protocols on the ecosystem once I've got my terra on Terra Station https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYCEsJMXTfk Best, Kevin

Whatup Cryptorabbits, I'm starting this chain solely for the purpose of information sharing on what we come across each day to help cut all of our learning curves. Great YouTube videos, twitter threads, analyst or insider papers, discord or reddit channel invites, etc etc. Anything is fair game... Whether it's simple or complex, I think we'd all be interested. To kick it off I've attached an overly in-depth 2022 thesis (you can google the broad strokes...worth reading this "Ryan Selkis' 2022 opinion"). And below is another absurdly in-depth white paper, but if you skim it enough then your technical crypto vocab will be well in-tact. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/review/2021/02/05/decentralized-finance-on-blockchain-and-smart-contract-based-financial-markets?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=SM&utm_content=stlouisfed&utm_campaign=f0e83c05-c5ab-4e46-b80d-b70fcf0c0a27 I have much more user-friendly material, but I wanted to start with these two things because they're the foundation for everything we're getting into. Till the next rabbit hole! -DCrypt
