Bitcoin Press Release: To educate Crypto-enthusiasts and prepare them for upcoming market conditions, a group of well-respected crypto experts have expressed their thoughts on the recent COVID-19 crisis, and its effect on the global crypto markets.

19th June 2020, London, United Kingdom: The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on our daily lives, our ability to interact and our financial structures and security. Blockchain technology has been around for over a decade, and there are now thousands of projects that seek to utilize its limitless potential to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues. 

Coin Journal has assembled a veteran team of experts in the field of cryptocurrency and financial technology, to gain some valuable insights into what the world may look like after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. Globally, we can only hope that containment of this danger is now within our grasp, but we can only speculate to the long-term impact that it will leave in its wake.

Heavyweight Opinion 

The panel is headed by Yoni Assia, the CEO of the world’s largest social investment network, eToro. Yoni also brought his market analyst and renowned crypto expert, Simon Peters to the table. The next to join the team, Ciara Sun, is currently employed as the Head of Global Markets at Huobi Group, a global blockchain financial asset service provider.  The panel also has the founder of virtual currency platform, Coincurve, and CEO of Interlapse, Wayne Chen. Finally, the panel would not be complete without the 15-year veteran of Wall Street technology and CEO of BSV blockchain service provider, TAAL; Mr Jerry Chan.

 

They discuss the potential effects of unlimited quantitative easing, the need for a Universal Basic Income (UBI), and how blockchain technology can be a tool for research teams to interact with transparency on a global scale. The team reveal evidence that shows how cryptocurrency stands resilient against the economic downturn caused by social distancing measures and the closure of businesses that have succumbed to the strain. 

Article Excerpts

Speaking exclusively to Coin Journal on the idea of Bitcoin as a ‘safe haven’ asset, eToro CEO Yoni Assia noted that crypto and fiat markets moved in tandem at the start of the COVID-19 panic. Market Analyst Simon Peters then noted a shift, which he describes below:

“Interestingly, this is backed-up by eToro’s platform data, which shows a 77% increase in new registrants whose first action was to invest in Bitcoin. As the price of Bitcoin is travelling in the same direction as gold, you could argue investors view it as a safe haven asset.” 

Other areas of the article speak about the survival of market segments, and the implementation of blockchain technology, especially across supply chains. TAAL CEO Jerry Chan had thoughts relating to limiting the spread of COVID-19 using blockchain technology:

“Pharmaceutical companies have realised the potential application of a scalable version of Bitcoin blockchain, which can be used to track COVID-19 testing and vaccination records, cross-state and cross-borders, in a way which could be used to corroborate or validate statistics submitted to global health organisations.”

Bitcoin Halving: Definitive Guide (In Just 5 Minutes)

Republished by Plato

Published

on

Bitcoin halving is often referred to as “Halvening”, it’s a formulated reduction in the reward coins offered to the miners using a predefined blockchain algorithm.

Bitcoin halvings take place once in every four – 4 years approximately, or for every 210,000 block transactions.

The process of halvening started in the year 2012, approximately after 4 years of the invention of bitcoin i.e 2008, but practically bitcoins came into play in the year 2009.

After the first bitcoin halving, the block reward of 50 bitcoins per transaction were reduced to 25 bitcoins per block or transaction, later this reward was further reduced to 12.5 and it has now fallen to 6.25 after halvening in 2020.

The main idea of halvening is to create scarcity for the coins and to control inflation, as bitcoins issuance is limited to 21 million coins as per the idea of Satoshi Nakamoto, inventor of Bitcoin.

The production of 21 million bitcoins involves 32 halvenings, we are now done with two halvenings and this might continue till or come to an end in the year 2140.

Investors from all over the world are excited and waiting for the Bitcoin price to increase, and the demand for bitcoins in the online gambling industry is high. Bitcoins are widely accepted at Bitcoin Casinos as they collect deposits in the form of cryptocurrency from their players.

Santiment Reveals Top 10 Ethereum Projects by Developer Activity

Republished by Plato

Published

Despite record highs for network charges in February, development on some of the industry’s leading Ethereum based projects has continued unabated.

The research stated that development activity is an often-underrated indicator of project success. It demonstrates the ongoing commitment to creating a working product, continuously polishing and upgrading its features, and staying true to the long-term roadmap.

The research focused solely on pure ERC-20 projects that are currently committed to developing on Ethereum. It has used 30-day Github activity to track development status and action.

The Ethereum Project Top Ten

At the top of the list for developer activity in February is the decentralized prediction market platform Gnosis. Despite a 28% slide in GNO token prices for the second half of the month, the Gnosis team has been busy working on the product.

Gnosis launched on the xDai Ethereum sidechain, joined the Open DeFi alliance, and launched a new collaborative grants initiative for Gnosis Safe Apps last month.

Status was the second most developed Ethereum based project with a number of updates for the open source mobile dApp browser and messenger. SNT prices hit a three-year high of $0.125 in February.

Virtual metaverse and NFT protocol Decentraland was third in the list of developer activity with a number of features introduced to improve user experiences.

DeFi synthetic asset protocol UMA came in fourth with two main focuses for the month; getting some major protocols out the door, and there was a collaboration with BadgerDAO.

Coming in at number five for developer action was Chainlink which announced the official mainnet launch of Off-Chain Reporting (OCR). This significantly improves the efficiency of how data is computed across Chainlink oracles, reducing operating costs by up to 90%, it added.

“The most immediate benefit to DeFi and its users will be a 10x increase in the amount of real-world data that can be made available to smart contract applications.”

DeFi Dominates

These were the five most developed platforms in the Ethereum ecosystem for February 2021, and they were dominated by DeFi.

Also featuring in the top ten list was Skale Network, a decentralized modular cloud for running Ethereum-based dApps. MakerDAO, which is consistently in the top ten for development, was in seventh place.

Decentralized data exchange protocol Ocean, computing sharing economy Golem, and analytics platform Santiment itself rounded out the top ten.
