News | V God Twitter pays tribute to the StarkWare team, and revisits the Ethereum incentive proposal: StarkWare, a zero-knowledge proof technology development company, announced on Twitter that it has received $30 million in Series A financing. When responding to users' questions about patents, it responded that "as of now, we have not applied for any patents." Vitalik respects his behavior of not conducting an ICO or patent application, and uses this to re-propose an incentive proposal to motivate Ethereum developers.

Previously, Vitalik Buterin published an article on the Ethereum Research Forum, proposing a new scheme to motivate developers. When a developer creates a smart contract, any other user who uses the contract pays a part of the transaction fee (for example, 33 %), will be sent to the creator of the contract as an incentive, and two algorithms for rewards are proposed, namely linear and super-linear.

Perhaps more importantly, Dorset continued, Bitcoin had to be "intuitive to people; to make people understand why they're using it, where it's located, so that people can use it in a way that feels like they're using cash directly." use it in the same way.” Dorset repeated in the interview a point he made last year. Last October, he said the internet was like a "new nation-state" whose national currency was "cryptocurrency and bitcoin." The interview is the latest Dorsey has lavished praise on Bitcoin.
