Here are the brightest events in the blockchain industry that are scheduled for the coming months. They will help you to stay up-to-date with the newest developments.
It is expected that 2020 will finally be the year when Ethereum and Cardano might switch to PoS (Proof of Stake) algorithm. However, that is only a starting point.
BitPay users will be able to accept Ethereum for payments, store Ethereum in a BitPay wallet and get access to Ethereum on BitPay prepaid Visa cards.
On Sunday, the Ethereal Summit took place. At the event, Ethereum’s Joseph Lubin and Vitalik Buterin commented on the Ethereum 2.0 update and discussed possible collaboration with Facebook on its Libra currency.
As Buterin said, Ethereum 2.0 aims to run ‘tens of thousands of transactions per second’ and he is sure that the new network will facilitate a number of on-chain transactions while maintaining key aspects of decentralization and security.
During his recent interview, Vitalik Buterin stressed on key factors of scalability, account security and usability which will steer ahead of the mass adoption of digital currencies.
The price of the popular Dogecoin cryptocurrency skyrocketed after the announcement that it has been listed on the Binance exchange at midday (UTC) Friday. The cryptocurrency had surged by 34 percent to $0.004324.
Justin Sun is quite optimistic of his meeting with Warren Buffett and is said to have invited some influential figures from the crypto space to communicate with Buffett the merits of blockchain and the opportunities that lie ahead.
It seems that Ethereum Co-Founder’s Polkadot project might not be able to raise $60 million as previously expected. There are some investors that have already placed some funds in the company but then the company would be valuated at under $1 billion.
Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin has publicly questioned both Binance and Bitcoin SV in an interview he gave to YouTuber Hardcore Crypto. He called Craig S Wright’s Bitcoin SV a “complete scam”.
