Best $100-$300 FPGA development board in 2018?

Hello, I’ve been trying to decide on a FPGA development board, and have only been able to find posts and Reddit threads from 4-5 years ago. So I wanted to start a new thread and ask about the best “mid-range” FGPA development board in 2018. (Price range $100-$300.)
I started with this Quora answer about FPGA boards, from 2013. The Altera DE1 sounded good. Then I looked through the Terasic DE boards.
Then I found this Reddit thread from 2014, asking about the DE1-SoC vs the Cyclone V GX Starter Kit: https://www.reddit.com/FPGA/comments/1xsk6w/cyclone_v_gx_starter_kit_vs_de1soc_board/‬ (I was also leaning towards the DE1-SoC.)
Anyway, I thought I better ask here, because there are probably some new things to be aware of in 2018.
I’m completely new to FPGAs and VHDL, but I have experience with electronics/microcontrollers/programming. My goal is to start with some basic soft-core processors. I want to get some C / Rust programs compiling and running on my own CPU designs. I also want to play around with different instruction sets, and maybe start experimenting with asynchronous circuits (e.g. clock-less CPUs)
Also I don’t know if this is possible, but I’d like to experiment with ternary computing, or work with analog signals instead of purely digital logic. EDIT: I just realized that you would call those FPAAs, i.e. “analog” instead of “gate”. Would be cool if there was a dev board that also had an FPAA, but no problem if not.
EDIT 2: I also realized why "analog signals on an FPGA" doesn't make any sense, because of how LUTs work. They emulate boolean logic with a lookup table, and the table can only store 0s and 1s. So there's no way to emulate a transistor in an intermediate state. I'll just have play around with some transistors on a breadboard.
UPDATE: I've put together a table with some of the best options:
Board Maker Chip LUTs Price SoC? Features
icoBoard Lattice iCE40-HX8K 7,680 $100 Sort of A very simple FPGA development board that plugs into a Raspberry Pi, so you have a "backup" hard-core CPU that can control networking, etc. Supports a huge range of pmod accessories. You can write a program/circuit so that the Raspberry Pi CPU and the FPGA work together, similar to a SoC. Proprietary bitstream is fully reverse engineered and supported by Project IceStorm, and there is an open-source toolchain that can compile your hardware design to bitstream. Has everything you need to start experimenting with FPGAs.
iCE40-HX8K Breakout Board Lattice iCE40-HX8K-CT256 7,680 $49 No 8 LEDs, 8 switches. Very similar to icoBoard, but no Raspberry Pi or pmod accessories.
iCE40 UltraPlus Lattice iCE40 UltraPlus FPGA 5280 $99 No Chip specs. 4 switchable FPGAs, and a rechargeable battery. Bluetooth module, LCD Display (240 x 240 RGB), RGB LED, microphones, audio output, compass, pressure, gyro, accelerometer.
Go Board Lattice ICE40 HX1K FPGA 1280 $65 No 4 LEDs, 4 buttons, Dual 7-Segment LED Display, VGA, 25 MHz on-board clock, 1 Mb Flash.
snickerdoodle Xilinx Zynq 7010 28K $95 Yes Xilinx Zynq 7-Series SoC - ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and Artix-7 FPGA. 125 IO pins. 1GB DDR2 RAM. Texas Instruments WiLink 8 wireless module for 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. No LEDs or buttons, but easy to wire up your own on a breadboard. If you want to use a baseboard, you'll need a snickerdoodle black ($195) with the pins in the "down" orientation. (E.g. The "breakyBreaky breakout board" ($49) or piSmasher SBC ($195)). The snickerdoodle one only comes with pins in the "up" orientation and doesn't support any baseboards. But you can still plug the jumpers into the pins and wire up things on a breadboard.
numato Mimas A7 Xilinx Artix 7 52K $149 No 2Gb DDR3 RAM. Gigabit Ethernet. HDMI IN/OUT. 100MHz LVDS oscillator. 80 IOs. 7-segment display, LEDs, buttons. (Found in this Reddit thread.)
Ultra96 Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU3EG 154K $249 Yes Has one of the latest Xilinx SoCs. 2 GB (512M x32) LPDDR4 Memory. Wi-Fi / Bluetooth. Mini DisplayPort. 1x USB 3.0 type Micro-B, 2x USB 3.0 Type A. Audio I/O. Four user-controllable LEDs. No buttons and limited LEDs, but easy to wire up your own on a breadboard
Nexys A7-100T Xilinx Artix 7 15,850 $265 No . 128MiB DDR2 RAM. Ethernet port, PWM audio output, accelerometer, PDM microphone, microphone, etc. 16 switches, 16 LEDs. 7 segment displays. USB HID Host for mice, keyboards and memory sticks.
Zybo Z7-10 Xilinx Zynq 7010 17,600 $199 Yes Xilinx Zynq 7000 SoC (ARM Cortex-A9, 7-series FPGA.) 1 GB DDR3 RAM. A few switches, push buttons, and LEDs. USB and Ethernet. Audio in/out ports. HDMI source + sink with CEC. 8 Total Processor I/O, 40 Total FPGA I/O. Also a faster version for $299 (Zybo Z7-20).
Arty A7 Xilinx Artix 7 15K $119 No 256MB DDR3L. 10/100 Mbps Ethernet. A few switches, buttons, LEDs.
DE10-Standard (specs) Altera Cyclone V 110K $350 Yes Dual-core Cortex-A9 processor. Lots of buttons, LEDs, and other peripherals.
DE10-Nano Altera Cyclone V 110K $130 Yes Same as DE10-Standard, but not as many peripherals, buttons, LEDs, etc.

Winner:

icoBoard ($100). (Buy it here.)
The icoBoard plugs into a Raspberry Pi, so it's similar to having a SoC. The iCE40-HX8K chip comes with 7,680 LUTs (logic elements.) This means that after you learn the basics and create some simple circuits, you'll also have enough logic elements to run the VexRiscv soft-core CPU (the lightweight Murax SoC.)
The icoBoard also supports a huge range of pluggable pmod accessories:
You can pick whatever peripherals you're interested in, and buy some more in the future.
Every FPGA vendor keeps their bitstream format secret. (Here's a Hacker News discussion about it.) The iCE40-HX8K bitstream has been fully reverse engineered by Project IceStorm, and there is an open-source set of tools that can compile Verilog to iCE40 bitstream.
This means that you have the freedom to do some crazy experiments, like:
You don't really have the same freedom to explore these things with Xilinx or Altera FPGAs. (Especially asynchronous circuits.)

Links:

Second Place:

iCE40-HX8K Breakout Board ($49)

Third Place:

numato Mimas A7 ($149).
An excellent development board with a Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA, so you can play with a bigger / faster FPGA and run a full RISC-V soft-core with all the options enabled, and a much higher clock speed. (The iCE40 FPGAs are a bit slow and small.)
Note: I've changed my mind several times as I learned new things. Here's some of my previous thoughts.

What did I buy?

I ordered a iCE40-HX8K Breakout Board to try out the IceStorm open source tooling. (I would have ordered an icoBoard if I had found it earlier.) I also bought a numato Mimas A7 so that I could experiment with the Artix 7 FPGA and Xilinx software (Vivado Design Suite.)

Questions

What can I do with an FPGA? / How many LUTs do I need?

Komodo and Monaize present the first decentralized ICO

Hey Everyone,
(Disclaimer: I am and will continue to be a long-term holder of Komodo)  
I wanted to spread the news to our crypto community about the first ICO taking place on the Komodo platform (KMD). Not many people know about this sleeping giant so wanted to pass along this information.  
The ICO is taking place on November 10th 12pm (GMT) for the e-banking platform Monaize (MNZ). MNZ is a fintech company that aims to capture the untapped market of small and medium size enterprises. They already have a working app that provides an instant KYB/KYC (Know Your Business/Client) on-boarding process allowing users to create a working bank account in less than five minutes with a smartphone.  
MNZ not only has a fully functional app, but they also have some very important partnerships. To list a few, Mastercard (banking service provider), Bitpay (bitcoin payment service provider), Lexus Nexis and Contego (KYC/KYB). MNZ plans to use their blockchain for real use cases such as new payments systems and crowd lending. As far as I know this is the first real partnership between a licensed bank and a public cryptocurrency. Also, during the presale KMD purchased 5% of the MNZ tokens in order to align the two companies’ interest and help MNZ navigate their way into the crypto space. KMD has a vested interest to see this ICO take off, and with a working app and great partnerships this should be an ICO on everyone's watch list.  
KMD is declaring this the first decentralized ICO (dICO) to be conducted in crypto history. This is a new term they coined themselves, an ICO that offers an easier and safer experience for participants. Listed below are characteristics they’ve implemented on the Komodo platform that allows them to proclaim this to be the world’s first dICO.  
  1. Atomic Swaps – KMD has been doing atomic swaps since 2014. They have been perfecting the tech for years and are about to unveil it to the world. The last phase they are working on is the GUI. They are days away from completing this, soon anyone will be able to do atomic swaps with the click of a button. The MNZ ICO will be the first ICO to be fully executed via Atomic Swaps. No more centralized websites/addresses to send coins into where users would have to wait days/weeks to receive the ICO token/coin. Learn more: https://blog.komodoplatform.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-atomic-swaps-and-how-komodo-is-advancing-the-technology-cadaec50da7c  
  2. Complete Anonymity – KMD has developed JUMBLR, a decentralized coin mixer that provides complete privacy for the users with only 0.1% – 0.3% fee for use. In a nutshell, JUMBLR trades your BTC (or other crypto) for KMD via atomic swap and provides complete privacy through the zero-knowledge proof technology. Then that KMD is mixed with other KMD from other sources to provide an additional layer of security. Lastly, the mixed KMD will be converted back to BTC through another atomic swap and sent to its destination. The JUMBLR process is still a manual process and completely optional, but provides complete anonymity for its users if they choose to use it. Learn more: https://blog.komodoplatform.com/the-evolution-of-komodo-7043fcd3ebfb  
  3. Whale Resistance – Many ICOs have fallen prey to some very wealthy people, like Basic Attention Token (BAT). ICOs, like BAT, run into issues when wealthy individuals/groups are able to buy up large sums of the ICO token/coin in relatively short amount of time. These whales will be able to control and manipulate the market which defeats the whole purpose of decentralized cryptocurrencies. KMD has implemented a system to distribute ICO tokens/coins across multiple nodes/peers to combat this problem. They want to give everyone a fair opportunity to participate in their ICOs. Learn more: https://blog.komodoplatform.com/the-decentralized-ico-platform-9a3291b5cfa3  
  4. Native Blockchains – KMD is creating a platform where ICO issuers will have complete control over their blockchains and crypto currencies. ICO issuers will have the ability to separate themselves from the main Komodo blockchain giving them the opportunity to implement their own features and securities, while still being able to piggyback off updates made on the Komodo blockchain. This solves the bloating/scalability problem ETH will eventually face in the future.  
  5. Multi-Coin Swaps – Komodo is not limiting their ICO issuers to only collect KMD in the ICOs. Bitcoin will be able to be used in the ICO, and potentially other coins in the future. This creates true freedom for both the ICO issuer and ICO participant. The KMD team aligns themselves with Satoshi’s vision of creating a fair and leveled playing field for people around the world. One issue that many people have raised concerns about is that this will fail to drive demand for KMD, but the KMD team doesn’t believe in forcing people to use their coin if they don’t want to. They see moves like this as a tax on an ecosystem and movement away from a free and open source environment. The KMD team believes use of their ecosystem will drive demand for KMD and create real organic growth. Its also worth mentioning that many ICO issuers will decide to help KMD by providing their investors incentives to use KMD. Like in the case of MNZ, this ICO will grant a 20% discount when using KMD in the first 6 hours of the ICO. After this window is closed the ICO will be opened up for BTC to be swapped for MNZ.  
There is so much more to know/learn about both KMD and MNZ that I cannot fit into this post without make it any longer than it already is. I encourage everyone to keep an eye on these two. I will provide some links on the bottom to some additional information for anyone who wants to do some research. Thanks!

Game Dev Considering Accepting Bitcoins.

Hey there folks.
I've been developing a game with a small team over the past year or so. We'll be going into Early Access on steam soon and will also be offering the game for purchase on our site.
In an effort to make the game available to as many people as possible I have been considering adding the option to pay for the game with bitcoin.
I'm not sure how many other developers are doing this at the moment, do you fine folks think that there would be an interest in this option ?
I'd love to know your thoughts.
Best Regards and Much Love MrNexy

A world of Dichotomy?

A world of Dichotomy?
Over the years, people and abstract phenomena have always been viewed and defined by many through the screen of absolutes — White or black, Good or Bad, Dreamer or Doer, Idealist or Pragmatist, those who live for the past/present or those who live for the future?

https://preview.redd.it/nn3k22ga7pa21.jpg?width=699&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6f05963a7103536c6c4ba420b472d823a6c86c6d
The world of cryptocurrencies has not been an exception to these discrete views. In fact, skeptics and enthusiasts alike once viewed cryptocurrencies as real or fake, truth or falsehood, a possibility or a product of wishful thinking depending on the side of the divide the holder of the view belongs. It was only a matter of time before the narrative changed and many came to agree that Cryptocurrencies are here to stay after all. However, the increased awareness did not just open doors for what is perhaps the biggest revolution in the finance market but it also led to an influx of shallow enthusiasts who only dabbled into cryptocurrencies like it’s a get-rich-quick scheme. Dilettantes who are missing the ultimate point that cryptocurrency is the future of the financial world. To insightful analysts, the current dip in value being experienced by most cryptocurrencies isn’t much of a surprise but an inevitable bubble — causing a ripple effect in the industry. We liken this ripple to a necessary wind for separating the real deals from charlatans and dabblers. This weeding is indeed necessary for ushering in the propitious future of cryptocurrencies in the financial world. History is surely about to repeat itself. How do we know this? The dot-com bubble (1) provides valuable insights.
From the early to the late 1990's, usage and widespread commercialization of the internet grew in leaps, with the market capitalization of internet-based companies peaking in value in the first quarter of the year 2000. Then the unexpected happened — market capitalization plummeted astronomically. During the crash, many internet-based companies went out of business. Interestingly, a few survived. Guess what? The few survivors ended up growing into mammoth billion dollar empires. Talk of Amazon, talk of eBay. Drawing a parallel, cryptocurrencies started evolving in 2008 but it gained massive traction in the successive years. To put that in perspective, a bitcoin traded at USD 0.30 on 1st Jan. 2011, and $100 investment would have fetched 333 bitcoins. By 17th December, 2017 those 333 bitcoins would have amounted to $6,594,267 when bitcoin values peaked at $19,783 (2). Since then the value of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have experienced a roller-coaster, to put it mildly, or a downward spiral to be more pessimistic, giving skeptics and naysayers something to laugh about. [TI2] To really have a full grasp of what is happening here, let’s revisit our world of dichotomies.
One thousand and one reasons can be ascribed to why the dot-com bubble survived where the majority failed. However, one overarching fact is that in the midst of all inevitable changes and downtown of events, the survivors aren’t those who see the world from the screen of black and white but those who see things in shades of grey and adapt to changes accordingly. They are not only dreamers who see the future but also doers who take practical steps in the light of prevailing realities. They may be idealists but their pragmatic stand is so palpable, they are always adapting and evolving. They aren’t trapped by the mistakes of the past or the limitations of the present. They aren’t so enraptured by the possibilities of the future either, but as firm thinkers, they take practical steps in the present towards delivering those lofty realities.
This is where Trade Nexi comes in. As a melting pot/nexus of three market models — Trade Nexi Market, Trade Nexi Exchange and Trade Nexi Community, our startup with the relentless efforts of her team of experts are about to take our use and approach to cryptocurrencies to the next level. By tapping into the fast-growing eCommerce market and reinventing the way transaction is being done online with the use of cryptocurrencies, Trade Nexi presents radical shift — trade without limits. The key point is synergizing Blockchains with eCommerce and blurring the distinction between the two. With about 2 billion annual online shoppers and millions of cryptocurrency users, Trade Nexi is set to take a pivotal place in the e-commerce market and with a lot of room to grow and be profitable to both investors and users. We are not seeing discrete entities of Black vs White, Idealist vs Pragmatist, Cryptoworld vs Ecommerce but practical shades of grey by creating a platform where cryptocurrencies become a standard payment option for goods and services with comparatively lower costs.
In the grand scheme of things, individual opinions are of little consequence to revolutions and evolution of ideas. The only question is — which side of the divide will you as an individual be? — Those that stood aloof and watched things happen or those who contributed to the making of the history? Reward only comes to those who balance the dreams with commensurate actions. Are you going to be a dreamer, a doer or find the effective balance of shade of grey in the world of black-white dichotomy?

Trade Nexi Pre-ICO Kicks off! Gazing into the future through the lens of the present

Trade Nexi Pre-ICO Kicks off! Gazing into the future through the lens of the present
Japan? Such was the excitement when the attention-grabbing news broke out on Japan’s goal of making cryptocurrencies a mainstay in their bid to transition into cashless economy (1). Considering Japan’s status as one of the largest economies in the world just behind the US and China (2), and the country’s reputation as a technology powerhouse, this news is hardly meant to be a surprise. However, what makes the news a resounding one is the fact that Japan has had its fair share of the challenges associated with the adoption of cryptocurrencies. When the major heist that saw hackers carting away with $450 million worth of bitcoin occurred in 2013, Japan was the worst hit because Tokyo Japan accounted for 70% of Bitcoin transactions at the time. How did the country respond? Rather than becoming reactive, skeptical and averse to cryptocurrencies, they did the opposite by taking proactive steps towards ensuring such debacles do not reoccur. Regulations were set, and more security checks were put in place. Why? The country saw, (and sees) clearly, the future through the lens of the present and they are consciously positioning themselves to become a front-runner in the financial revolution that has begun already. A revolution that sees cryptocurrencies as the mainstay means of transaction ahead of fiat money, in every nook and cranny of the globe.

https://preview.redd.it/5vuk2taf7fd21.jpg?width=1189&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4b5a7b39fdeff0b0cc09f9547254d9025c8d1812

Japan’s case is just one out of the many budding cases strongly indicating the imminent watershed moments in the financial world where the global market gravitates from fiat, border-restrictive paper currencies into decentralized digital currencies built on blockchains. The revolution it brings does not only afford more freedom but the speed with which transactions will be made is uncanny. For instance, if Japan’s project succeeds within the defined time frame, the developers claim it will be able to handle over a million transactions (up to 10 million) per second. In comparison, some of the most efficient and fastest of credit card networks are only able to handle several thousand transactions per second. To put that into perspective, individual transactions on the blockchain can be confirmed in two seconds or far less. Such is the immense power and potential of crypto-driven marketplaces.
Trade Nexi — a melting pot of three market models — Trade Nexi Market, Trade Nexi Exchange and Trade Nexi Community stands as a major forerunner in this revolution of synergizing Blockchains with eCommerce. The project will blur the distinction between the two worlds, as cryptocurrencies become the foremost means of the transaction of goods and services. The pre-ICO stage kicked off with lots of fanfare and with the relentless efforts of the teams of experts behind the scene, lots of progress have been made and meaningful traction generated. In the first week of the pre-ICO stage launch, our social media outlets grew in leaps and it keeps getting better (See figure 1).

By the end of the first week, we had received visitors from 46 countries spread across 5 continents across the globe with India topping the charts on the number of unique visitors. Perhaps the most interesting aspects of the milestones made were the fact that main ICO listing platforms have been selecting us for listing and some were done without filing applications to them. Such is the potential and long-term viability of the Trade Nexi project.
Current listings and initial ratings are as follows:
ICO Birds with a rating of 9.3/10
CRYPTOTotem — 7.9/10
ICObench — from 3.6 to 4.0
ICOmarks — 6.9
CoinLauncher — 5.38
CryptoKrunch — total score 61
Other listings and recognition include:
ICOHOLDER
Wings Foundation DAO Platform
Coingecko
TheTokener
NB: We got selected by ICOHOLDER, one of the biggest and strictest ICO listing sites, without applying. They checked out our project out, found it auspicious and listed us.
We are matching on — with conscientious attention to details, security and ease of transaction as our watchwords. The pre-ICO stage affords early buyers to purchase our tokens at a modest rate of 1 Nexi = $0.002 before the full ICO launch later in February 2019.

[uncensored-r/CryptoCurrency] Komodo and Monaize present the first decentralized ICO

  3. Whale Resistance – Many ICOs have fallen prey to some very wealthy people, like Basic Attention Token (BAT). ICOs, like BAT, run into issues when wealthy individuals/groups are able to buy up large sums of the ICO token/coin in relatively short amount of time. These whales will be able to control and manipulate the market which defeats the whole purpose of decentralized cryptocurrencies. KMD has implemented a system to distribute ICO tokens/coins across multiple nodes/peers to combat this problem. They want to give everyone a fair opportunity to participate in their ICOs.

  4. Native Blockchains – KMD is creating a platform where ICO issuers will have complete control over their blockchains and crypto currencies. ICO issuers will have the ability to separate themselves from the main Komodo blockchain giving them the opportunity to implement their own features and securities, while still being able to piggyback off updates made on the Komodo blockchain. This solves the bloating/scalability problem ETH will eventually face in the future.  
  5. Multi-Coin Swaps – Komodo is not limiting their ICO issuers to only collect KMD in the ICOs. Bitcoin will be able to be used in the ICO, and potentially other coins in the future. This creates true freedom for both the ICO issuer and ICO participant. The KMD team aligns themselves with Satoshi’s vision of creating a fair and leveled playing field for people around the world. One issue that many people have raised concerns about is that this will fail to drive demand for KMD, but the KMD team doesn’t believe in forcing people to use their coin if they don’t want to. They see moves like this as a tax on an ecosystem and movement away from a free and open source environment. The KMD team believes use of their ecosystem will drive demand for KMD and create real organic growth. Its also worth mentioning that many ICO issuers will decide to help KMD by providing their investors incentives to use KMD. Like in the case of MNZ, this ICO will grant a 20% discount when using KMD in the first 6 hours of the ICO. After this window is closed the ICO will be opened up for BTC to be swapped for MNZ.  
There is so much more to know/learn about both KMD and MNZ that I cannot fit into this post without make it any longer than it already is. I encourage everyone to keep an eye on these two. I will provide some links on the bottom to some additional information for anyone who wants to do some research. Thanks!

What's going on with Bitcoin Regulation? LexisNexis to host "virtual currency webinar" to bankers (x-post r/bitcoin)

Sorry for the x-post, but this got no traction over at /bitcoin and I'd appreciate any insights:
LexisNexis just Tweeted about an upcoming webinar they're holding for banking professionals. Did some new regulation come out or are they just trying to educate some of the more old-school bankers?

LexisNexis and start-up join to curb bitcoin money-laundering

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 43%.
LONDON A company that provides banks with anti-money-laundering controls has teamed up with a bitcoin security firm to try to curb nefarious uses of the digital currency, such as drug trafficking and terrorism financing.
LexisNexis said the new service it has created with London-based startup Elliptic would bring bank-grade AML controls to bitcoin transactions, making the virtual currency more attractive to those who might want to use it for legitimate transactions.
It has shared that database with Elliptic, which monitors bitcoin transactions and can alert its clients - ranging from bitcoin exchanges to U.S. and European intelligence agencies - when money moves from bitcoin addresses that have been identified as bad actors.
Bitcoin is a web-based digital currency that relies on complex algorithms to move money around quickly and anonymously with no need for a central authority to process transactions.
That has made it attractive to a variety of users, including those who want to get around capital controls and those who support a currency that is free from government control for ideological reasons.
Last month Elliptic said it was working with the Internet Watch Foundation to clamp down on the use of bitcoin for online child pornography.
