Ethereum Testnet Issues Now Fixed

Within hours of a bug that split Ethereum’s testnet being found, the problem was fixed and as was predicted, the glitch was related with the new Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) which adds efficiency gains to calculations with only Parity to apparently be affected. A Rust developer called, Wei Tang said: “The bug has been fixed. It affects parity and aleth, which we had the same bug,” with aleth being a C++ eth client. He continued to say, “I fixed the SSTORE refund saturating sub bug and confirmed that it indeed computed the same state root as geth. I guess when Afri wakes up, we’ll try to get a patch release really soon which should fix the current consensus issue on Ropsten.” An Ethereum developer called Martin Holst Swende tested the fix with it showing that the two main clients of ...

Time Is The Only Cure For Bitcoin’s Price Volatility Issues

One of the most common (and most valid) criticisms thrown bitcoin’s way over the years has been the issue of price volatility. With price swings of 10 percent or more in a single day, how is anyone supposed to use this digital asset as a real-world currency? While a number of different theories have been discussed in terms of how bitcoin will eventually become a less volatile form of money, the reality is there is only one real solution to this problem: time. Bitcoin’s Future Price Has a Wide Range There are plenty of people who are bullish on the long-term prospect of bitcoin’s usefulness as a global, permissionless money, but the idea that the digital money will take over the entire world one day is still nothing more than a dream at this point. For this reason, bitcoin’s true value is s...

Will Your Crypto Die With You?

Where do you think Bitcoin will be this time next year? $10,000 $100,000? $0? Whatever you pick there will be some who agree with you, and many who do not. The truth is, no one knows. However, there are some things we can predict. Here’s one: you’re going to die. Here’s another: you probably have not thought about what is going to happen to your crypto when that happens. Benjamin Franklin said, “in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Unfortunately, the crypto-world is still pretending that it is immune to both. 2018’s bear market may have toned down talk of lambos, but as a community we still haven’t grown up. Crypto’s death problem The biggest problem in cryptocurrency is not adoption. It is not liquidity. It is not volatility. The biggest problem, dwarf...
