Is OpenSea, a YC company, heavily recruiting via YC in preparation for an IPO?

 

"YC Tech Talks Crypto, NFTs & AMA w/ CoFounder of OpenSea
Speakers: Devin Finzer CEO co-founder @opensea, Nemil Dalal PM of crypto @coinbase"

OpenSea used YC's work for startup events and candidate pipeline to host a recruiting event. Coinbase engineering lead was also a part of this event. This is an invite-only event. Candidates will have to apply first via YC's work for startup portal, entering detailed work info, resume info. It took a while. Candidate profile is labeled with "yc network", "Crypto 2021" etc. Candidates have to pre-select the roles they are interested in : marketing, dev, community etc, and will be limited to applying to those roles. OpenSea, coinbase, 
Algofi (S21), Fast, low-cost crypto lending market on the Algorand blockchain (according to their YC profile)
Dharma Labs (S17) The easiest way to buy 74+ crypto tokens with USD  (according to their YC profile)
Filta (S21) The Face Filter NFT marketplace  (according to their YC profile)

OpenSea's is rumored to IPO? 
Is OpenSea, a YC company, heavily recruiting via YC in preparation for an IPO?
Comment: personally, I am not sure how credible it is. It seems a bit pre-mature. 
Bloomberg Crypto : Former Lyft CFO Roberts Joins Crypto Startup OpenSea. "Roberts, known for shepherding Lyft through rapid growth to a successful IPO and adjusted profitability, said OpenSea is already profitable. He said although it doesn’t need to raise more cash, it could use the financing to acquire companies, strike partnerships and create joint ventures to further expand the use of NFTs into new industries. " "I’ve seen a lot of P&Ls (profit and loss statements) but I’ve never seen a P&L like this,” said Roberts, adding that although he still feels it’s “day one” for the NFT industry in general and OpenSea in particular he’s already planning its IPO."


NFT Market Place OpenSea

 

According to Coinbase blog, OpenSea is by far the largest NFT market place in 2021. Not included in this graph: crypto.com/NFT and coinbase NFT (yet to be launched)

MongoDB 2022

MongoDB is a versatile nosql database that is great for web apps, dapps blockchain decentralized apps, even mobile apps. In 2022, MongoDB skills are still important relevant for data scientists. 

The document model of MongoDB is flexible enough to be used to store all kinds of data. See official illustration below


It can be used for transactional data, search, mobile, analytics, data lakes, and can be used to model key-value store, geospatial data, relational, object, even graph! 

"MongoDB is document oriented open source database which allows you to store JSON documents" - Johns Hopkins

MongoDB is a modern database services like firebase, neo4j, redis, HBase, Apache Cassandra, GraphQl

Advanced

can use google cloud kubernetes to run mongodb server

MongoDB can be used with node.js to build sophisticated web apps, even provide authentication service, though one should never code an auth service from scratch. It's a huge security issue.

Multisig wallet: (vocabulary)

""A multisig wallet is a wallet shared by two or more users called copayers. Depending on the kind of wallet, the number of signatures required to sign a transaction will be lower or equal to the number of copayers of the wallet. For example, a 3-3 wallet is a multisig wallet that is shared by three people and requires three signatures to sign a transaction. A 2-3 wallet is a multisig wallet that is shared by three people and requires two signatures to sign a transaction. You may also see “2 of 3” to indicate the number of copayers needed.""

Comment: keep in mind, it is hard enough for one person to keep track of crypto wallet passphrase, if the signature holders forget or sadly pass away, this can really be a problem.

Voice assistant, AI Assistant Alexa Siri Wit.ai (Facebook), Twilio Basics

 We previously wrote extensively about Alexa. How to get started, understand the voice interaction model, low-code development environment for Alexa skills. Use the right panel search bar to explore these articles. Today we want to expand the talk to be more general and include other voice assistant technology such as wit.ai acquired by Facebook. 

Voice assistants have evolved to be modern, and AI enabled in 2022. Now they are smart voice assistants.  They are not routes - rule based logic that routes users to the right department, phone book, voicemail. They are intelligent, often enabled by natural language processing (NLP) capabilities. 

Some keywords have not changed: 

Intent: what is the action that user wants to achieve, e.g. buy eggs
Entities: important nouns in utterances, which helps us understand the user's intent and the subject and object the intent is acting on. e.g. "egg". Can also be geographic locations, time, dates etc. Select a part of utterance as wit location entity  example facebook wit demo distance between Seattle and Menlo Park
Utterance: what the user actually tells the voice assistance e.g. "Put some organic eggs in my shopping cart." Utterances can come in many forms. Must be thoroughly tested include many examples, and be natural.

Be sure to always handle errors: there should be a fall back answer "I am sorry I cannot understand what you said. Try say xyz. You can also contact us at xyz"

Twilio now also offers intelligent AI based intent classification.  Wit.ai can be used with cloud functions and twilio studio. Wit.ai gives user NLP capabilities without code. Providing utterance examples and labeling entities is easy. Click and submit. Wit.ai also allows easy incorporation of smart replies in Facebook Messenger. It's useful for business pages as well. I might be biased because I participated in wit.ai hackathons and was impressed!

At the hackathon, I was able to test out wit.ai using curl

curl -i -X GET "https://graph.facebook.com/{page-id}?fields=about,attire,bio,location,parking,hours,emails,website&access_token={page_access_token}"

Be sure to replace page-id and page_access_token with your own parameters.

I was able to hook wit.ai API with twilio workflow.  What's even cooler is that you can use postman to test wit.ai API! The facebook team used glitch to demo their app with node.js, webhook . I liked the idea of the glitch but it had a learning curve for me, so I quickly gave up. ,

The workflow of wit.ai is :

- Create a facebook developer app and get a developer API

- create a facebook page to use wit.ai in messenger

Messenger apps are associated with a specific Facebook Page.

Using wit.ai on Facebook page can help seller answer questions, automatically make product recommendations. Using Facebook tools has one caveat the license is often not fully open sourced. Your custom app likely is not private to Facebook, just like source code of iphone apps aren't private. Apple can potentially make clones. Facebook has similar terms too. Watch out. 

Alexa

When we first got started with Alexa there were only 25000 skills. How many skills does Alexa have today? Comment below.

Easy alexa quiz app: true or false questions, question banks. Give hints when users need it.

No code alexa? Program alexa skills without coding? There was a service called Storyline. Alexa seems to have its own inhouse AWS solution called Blueprint, perhaps the easiest way to make an Alexa app without coding.

CoinMarketCap API for crypto developers, blockchain developers

 While the free version of CoinMarketCap API is limited, it gives fun useful information. Please read our disclaimer before using this post. The API can be found on  https://coinmarketcap.com/api/  Here are somethings you can find in the coinmarketcap API


Market cap
Price
Volume (24 hours)
Circulating Supply
Change (24 hours)

you will be able to plot a simple price plot.

What you won't be able to do without spending a lot of money:

historic price

An important object is the response body returned by the coinmarketcap API.

Did you know that the most basic coinmarketcap api functionality can be accessed using R Programming? There's a package for that on github : CoinmarketcapR. This is a community package. We are not sure how safe, secure and how it can be best used. An initial looks shows that : this library is somewhat popular, has youtube tutorials (unofficial), can access some basic coinmarketcap APIs, while most APIs are deprecated. The library needs to be updated. It goes well with R. 

In news articles, we often hear that crypto has reached certain dollar amount of global market cap. CoinMarketCap can give you that number with a function call.

With advanced coinmarketcap API pricing and package, it's possible to do a bit of intermediate to advanced technical analysis. 

Did you know that the coinmarketcap website is often used to check contract addresses on Ethereum, and other blockchains such as binance smart chain. 


Below is the curl command to get  a list of current crypto prices using your coinmarketcap api key. Remember to replace the your-api-key-here with your actual api key. The free api key is relatively generous. It even shows a list of currency prices. 

curl -H "X-CMC_PRO_API_KEY: your-api-key-here" -H "Accept: application/json" -d "start=1&limit=5000&convert=USD" -G https://pro-api.coinmarketcap.com/v1/cryptocurrency/listings/latest

This newsletter's mega topic


TRAINING LOOP


Today's main focus in Machine Learning training is : training loop and gradient

What is training? Training is the learning part of "machine learning". In iterative processes, your models compare predictions (y_hat) with ground truth (y) in supervised learning. Then it will compute a heuristic of distance, which represents how good or far off is the prediction, also represents how distant is the prediction from the ground truth. Your models' goal is to minimize the distance using math and algorithms tricks, educated guess, even randomization. 


Depends on the metrics chosen, the distance result in very different numbers. There are strengths and weaknesses of each distance function, making each of them suitable for different tasks. There's no one magical distance function. An example of distance function in regression is euclidean distance. An example of distance function in classification is multi-class cross-entropy. In some scenarios, when comparing two vectors, their dot product can be used as the distance function. The choice of distance function takes trial and error. And can be an art. 


Check out the machine learning flash card landing page for more information on training APIs how the .fit function in scikit-learn different from pytorch custom loop.

https://ml.learn-to-code.co/topic_end_to_end_machine_learning_course_flash_cards.html#training_uniqtech_guide


Because of the interdisciplinary nature of machine learning (a perfect partnership of math, statistics, computer science, probabilities, even biology, neuroscience and more), there are often different versions and names for the same terminology. It's confusing for beginners, even experts. Other names for distance function are similarity measures, loss function, cost function. 


We won't be able to explain and teach the training loop in one newsletter. We will need to create a series of youtube videos for our subscribers. But we want to show you the codes, line by line, and what's the purpose of each line. How does pytorch training loop differs from Tensorflow? 


On the machine learning flash card landing page, we explained tensorflow and scikit-learn has a high level API .fit() To train a model you just have to call the fit API on X(input) and y(output) in supervised learning. The pytorch custom training loop is a bit more involved. Just a few more lines of code. You can also write custom loops in Tensorflow. In this newsletter we just want to link to the source code. Don't worry about understand every little detail. We will want to record videos that explain these algorithms line-by-line. But if you take a close look, the training loop is under 50 lines of code. That's pretty manageable! Don't be intimated. If we learn one section a day, we will be done in a week. 


Pro members check out the pytorch custom training loop, annotated here, in this flash card.

"sklearn (scikitlearn) and keras just call .fit() to train. The format is model.fit(X_train, y_train). In Pytorch you will have to do a bit DIY your own custom training loop."

How to play sandbox play-to-earn game strategy guide

Strategy guide and walkthrough for Sandbox alpha

wasd keys for directions 

space bar for jumping

T for emote

shift + w forward + sprinting




debugging: your browser is not compatible, your browser is not supported. Solution : use the latest chrome.


Only those with alpha pass unlocks the entire alpha week content and can earn the highest price.


Those without alpha pass can purchase (very expensive on opesea $10,000 US ++ and filled with spammers), or play Alpha Quest and participate in official twitter daily contest https://twitter.com/TheSandboxGame to win.


Must participate by replying on the day of, with a screenshot, and fill out a google form with wallet address, and link to tweet (of screenshot) to win.

There are at least three other tasks that can be done by non-alpha-pass holders: visit each fraction land, count deer, lynx, brown bear (6,5,2 depends on the order you are asked, you can actually guess this one multiple times instead of counting it. this is not the number in the market. It's literally in the alpha land you are in right now), fix a few beacons (locating the 5 beacons) .

Some beacons are hard to find. Be sure to use jumping (space bar) to access some places. Look for ladders and stair cases. We will show you below.

picture : in october snoop dog ran a contest for his private party pass

Day 1 create avatar, post screenshot, link to it in google form

Day 2 take a picture with snoop dog... same as above

Day 3 Get lasered by the Bored Ape with laser eyes!  


When doing tasks look for these yellow indicators. They tell you where to go. They are helpful. 


You can get the beacon task from this dude. 


Visiting different fractions. Their land are different colors. When you enter the world, go through the hall way almost to the laser eye ape, on the first floor, behind a different statue, that's the open field to the 3 fractions. 

Quest: how to locate and repair the beacons in sandbox alpha


Get the counting task and answer to this dude. You can take a guess instead of counting.


For fun, you can dance Gangnam style, use T for emote

Type in /help in chat for commands.


One beacon is located at a tough to spot place, you have to jump off a ledge to see it. 



One is on top of these building, enter one of the room, for the secret stair case to the top.


Tough to find 



Final one is in a house filled with fish, the stairwell looks like this.


For day 1 you have to hang out with snoop dog.
