Decentralised exchange (DEX) Uniswap unveiled an educational platform in collaboration with DoDAO blockchain on September 21. The Uniswap “University” is similar to learning academies created by centralised exchanges such as Binance, Bitget and Bybit.

The university plans to launch “courses, simulations, and fast guides” to introduce its consumers to “v3 exchange” through a “systematic learning pathway”.

According to a statement, users can learn various subjects, like decentralised exchange, “strategy back-testing tools”, etc., on the platform. In addition, simulations let users obtain quick, useful information regarding “complex position management tools and adding and removing liquidity”.

In its advanced course, Uniswap teaches users the fundamentals of becoming a liquidity provider on v3. It writes: “In this chapter, we will explore several potential strategies that a liquidity provider can consider. These include holding stablecoins, maintaining different tokens, and providing liquidity. Each strategy comes with its own set of advantages and drawbacks.”

Nic Carter Doubles Down On Bitcoin’s Invention Theory

The decade-old “NSA created Bitcoin” theory is again doing the rounds on social media, with one proponent Bitcoin advocate, Nic Carter, adding weight to the theory. He supports the hypothesis that the US National Security Agency (NSA) played a role in Bitcoin’s invention.

On September 15, Daniel Roberts, co-founder of Iris Energy, revived the 10-year-old notion on X after he uploaded screenshots from a 1996 article titled “How to Make a Mint: The Cryptography of Anonymous Electronic Cash.”

It is one of the earliest papers on a system similar to Bitcoin suggesting using public-key cryptography to enable users to send money anonymously without disclosing their identities.

According to the footnotes, the study was “prepared by NSA employees.” Tatsuaki Okamoto, a cryptography expert who co-invented the Okamoto-Uchiyama public key cryptosystem in 1998, was one of the sources.
