Twitter Thread

This past week there was a Twitter debate between protocols about how aggregator vaults like Yearn compete versus users for yield. Discussion turned to a question about if these aggregator vaults should be seen as “whales” or as collections of smaller users? I was curious as well, and built this dashboard to try to gain insight into how many users are actually participating in Yearn vaults and how large their holdings are. Another semi-viral Twitter thread followed:

Inspired by Paul Graham’s latest essay.

Nothing recently has struck me quite like Paul Graham’s latest essay What I Worked On. Paul takes you through his professional life from college, to art school, to his first jobs, to founding ViaWeb, and eventually to Y Combinator. The essay helped me connect with the winding path that Paul, and most of us, go through, no matter how “up and to the right” history tells the story. It also reminded me of this Steve Jobs quote about looking back on your life: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
