MetaMask has been upgraded

When I first met MetaMask early last year, I confirmed one fact about blockchain: "Blockchain is still In the early stages"...  I remember the moment I opened MetaMask and I was suddenly reminded of my Mac OS 9.2 back in the day.

But to be honest, the unforgetable Mac OS 9.2 , never crashed, and I never reinstalled the system. Back to the topic at hand, last week, MetaMask did an upgrade, and well...  It's not a step towards Mac OS X yet, but it's certainly a lot more comforting, for example.

  • Easier presentation of assets
  • Connected Wallet adds account options

As for the UI, I'm actually starting to miss Mac OS 9.2 now. So I'm with you, MetaMask.

Dependence on the value of protocol tokens

On July 17, a guy named scott lewis posted his sentiments.

every protocol token has two valuations.

1) valuation based on Economic Value Accrual

2) valuation based on Meme Value Accrual

don't short an asset based on EVA, when the market is trading it based on MVA.

Imagine the MVA potential of a Tesla + Chainlink partnership.

What the hell does that steak mean?

On July 15, Anthony Sassano said.

I can't wait to 🥩 my ETH.

I have no clue about the meaning of "steak", but thanks to Alexander, I have a clue now.

Nodar.DeFi.eth added.

Came in a farmer, came out a butcher.

Is it necessarily related to Yield Farming? More confused. And finally DASHUO gave me the exact answer.

Steak = Stake = ETH 2.0 of Staking

I feel dumb😂

No wonder Anthony Sassano is so desperate to "steak" his ETH,  go butchers!
