Is it overstating the problem of censorship on Ethereum if excluded transactions are eventually validated at a later time? Enter the proverbial boiling frog…
Slowly at first, then all at once. Creeping normality is a process by which a major change can be accepted as normal if it happens slowly through small, often unnoticeable, increments of change.
Stating the problem of censorship another way; can equal and fair competition happen on a public blockchain if the infrastructure, base layer is not credibly neutral? You can build a permissioned network on top of a permissionless one but the inverse is not true.
There are few things better than a healthy debate. The topic of credible neutrality on Ethereum is contentious and substantial.
For Gnosis Chain, we’re committed to credible neutrality at the level of core protocol development. Without privilege or prejudice and irrespective of the content, all transactions will be treated the same on Gnosis Chain. We believe that this is only possible if the network is secured by a geographically diverse community of validators around the world.
The topic of credible neutrality was also discussed in the latest episode of the Epicenter podcast between Friederike Ernst, co-founder of Gnosis, and Vitalik Buterin.

Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
It’s time for the weekly check-in with Azuro Protocol and their first betting front-end, bookmaker.xyz.
For the last 2 weeks, we have been hosting a team-based betting competition for the community at XYZ, we have dubbed it “Betting Battle Royale”… Teams of 3 are competing against one another to see who will be crowned our first Battle Royale champions!
We’ve seen a spectacular performance from teams at the top of the leaderboard, with the top 2 teams holding triple-digit PnL%. We want to highlight some of the top teams’ best moments this week
Team Badhabits: 132% PnL
Team Badhabits were quite late to the party but came out swinging to secure the number 1 spot. Their best bet had to be FC Internazionale - Viktoria Plzen. Bet on Total Goals over 3.5 with 100 xDAI. This bet secured them not only 212 xDAI payout but the number 1 spot on the leaderboard!
Team OnlyFans: 4.88% PnL
Our honorable mention goes to team OnlyFans. They were in second place earlier last week with 50%+ PnL. They decided to risk it all in one large bet on high odds to see if they could secure the number 1 spot. Unfortunately, it didn’t go their way but they are still representing a very respectable return despite the loss.
You can tell there were a lot of strategies involved with this team! GG
With 4 days left until the Battle Royale concludes, it’s still anyone’s game! Firm handshakes to all the teams competing!
