We recently co-invested the seed round of a YC company, Synthetic Minds, with Khosla Ventures. Synthetic Minds work to bullet proof smart contract, and are looking to automate the reading and writing of code. The founder, Srivastava, holds a PhD from Berkeley, and has been in this field for more than a decade.

The core technology of Synthetic Minds, program synthesis, falls under the same category as the method NASA uses to ensure the safety of mission critical software. With this technology, smart contract developers can build more trust in their high-value and long-lasting code. It will also allow comprehensive and automated auditing of smart contracts.

While we are very excited about the adoption and development in smart contracts that Synthetic Minds will help generate, we are even more thrilled about their long-term mission of democratizing software creation. Through establishing tools that analyze and synthesize code better than human, Synthetic Minds is going to bring automation to coding.

How cool is this: "Mastering Bitcoin 1Ed", on Chinese national TV. Even with a slightly sanitized title (no mention of Bitcoin), the content is the same.

Hoping to visiting China next year. Maybe this brings more opportunities and conference invitations. https://t.co/SHOBoaiF9a

One thing that people are ignoring in this quiet market is the fact that, as of tomorrow, Bitcoin will have held $6,000 for over a year. That’s huge. It’s proving that bitcoin is functioning as a store of value.

Good work from @AlethioEthstats. As they point out, the fact that EOS had massive outflows from the crowdsale contract DURING THE SALE is hugely problematic. Why did they depart from the established best practice and do this?
