Utah, US It’s a DeFi week this week, I bought an Ether to play around with DeFi dapps on Ethereum, which turns out as nothing happened. Because I couldn’t see any reason to swap the Ether to other low value tokens, and the risks are high – I believe that those dapps on Ethereum are not well audited or regulated enough. I also spent time on the development test on Ethereum.
Utah, US This week, I spent too much time learning, reading, and listening to podcasts – too much to learn. I took more notes than earlier and practiced a new way of learning SQ4R – a little book called Learn Less, Learn Smart. There is a video Marty Lobdell - Study Less Study Smart. I learned how to rest and relax effectively at the same time ;) Given the idea of building an app on CKB, I did a lot of code reading, and dapps on Ethereums as well.
Utah, US This week, I spent more time on Rust language learning, read code and practice, made the ribbot fetch new open issues from given projects. The next thing will let it get news from Medium source – automate the RiB news generating process over time. Rust documentation is very well written. I enjoyed reading it. For example, the Closures, the writer even thought about the readers’ next thought – if they want to use Closure in functions syntax – and thoroughly practically explained the concept, with code demos – a lovely narrative.
Utah, US This week, I tried to build a bot in Rust. Read a bunch of documentation and onboard articles. I had many questions on the basic syntax, for example mut. From learning new small pieces of knowledge, I started to take notes seriously, tried to record down each step I made. Delivery Business Draft the business plan Build on CKB Made testnet and devnet run, and Brian posted Experience report - first time building and running CKB Research on existing CKB SDKs Draft grant application Programming Registered a python course Learn from Rust docs and videos Command line learning Efforts Built the Coconut report to Hugo site, it can be visited by impl.

Location: Utah, US Timezone: UTC-6 Since I moved more work to the weekend, I would change the reporting day to Sunday. I have been talking to friends in China, Italy, Berlin, Australia and the US, most of us are worried because of the COVID-19 but have to calm down and support each other. I wrote a simple blog post in Chinese today, feeling it was big progress – started!
