¿Qué asesino de Ethereum? Los datos en cadena muestran que las redes de la competencia todavía están rezagadas

Los críticos dicen que las crecientes tarifas de gas de Ethereum harán que el proyecto sea víctima de las cadenas de bloques de la competencia, pero los datos en la cadena sugieren lo contrario.

Bitcoin Trader sigue siendo la segunda criptomoneda más grande y domina absolutamente la industria de los contratos inteligentes de acuerdo con una variedad de métricas de uso de la red. Aunque la red se ha visto abrumada por la actividad máxima que está provocando que las tarifas medias superen los $ 10, el efecto de red de su gran base de usuarios y desarrolladores parece ser suficiente para mantener su posición como la segunda criptomoneda clasificada por capitalización de mercado.

Sin embargo, algunas métricas clave en la cadena están comenzando a mostrar un cambio potencial en la supremacía de Etheruem, lo que plantea la vieja pregunta de si un „asesino de Ethereum“ podrá destronar a la red principal

Como se muestra arriba, la red Ethereum domina ampliamente las aplicaciones descentralizadas (dApps). Debido a sus altas tarifas de gas para las transacciones, al analizar la cantidad de direcciones activas, la red Ethereum parece estar en desventaja con respecto a sus competidores.

Durante la semana pasada, NBA Top Shot de FLOW blockchain tenía casi 80,000 direcciones activas, que es cinco veces más grande que el mercado Rarible NFT de Ethereum o incluso SushiSwap. Por lo tanto, los primeros datos a analizar es el número de direcciones activas diarias en cada blockchain.

El gráfico anterior muestra que Tron (TRX) ha superado recientemente a Ethereum en direcciones activas diarias, aunque esta métrica se puede inflar fácilmente. La red Tron tiene tarifas prácticamente nulas para transacciones simples, lo que crea una comparación injusta.

Al medir las transacciones y transferencias efectivas, es más fácil excluir las direcciones que no contribuyen a la red

Al hacer esto, podemos ver que Tron ni siquiera se acerca a los números de Ethereum, aunque el reciente crecimiento de precios de Cardano ( ADA ) ha llevado a un virtual empate entre los dos.

Curiosamente, la red Tron tiene más de 14.5 mil millones de Tether ( USDT ) en circulación, lo que por sí solo debería impulsar las métricas de uso de la red. Mientras tanto, Cardano tiene un 90% menos de direcciones activas diarias que Ethereum, sin embargo, ambas redes manejan la misma cantidad de transferencias y transacciones.

Esto es especialmente problemático ya que Ethereum maneja 20 mil millones de tokens Tether y también administra todas las transacciones de Chainlink ( LINK ), USD Coin ( USDC ), Wrapped ETH ( WETH ) y muchas otras.

Bitcoin mempool täpper upp med 125 000 transaktioner som väntar

Medan antalet Bitcoin-transaktioner som kan passa i ett block förblir detsamma, leder efterfrågan på nätverket till stigande transaktionskostnader.

Bitcoin mempool ökade kort över 125.000 idag

Antalet transaktioner som väntar på att bekräftas i Bitcoin mempool ökade kort över 125.000 idag. Detta motsvarar ungefär 149 megabyte i data som väntar på att läggas till blockchain, vilket är tillräckligt för att fylla minst 107 kommande block.

Även om den är mindre än spiken som såg en 143 000+ eftersläp i transaktioner den 17 december 2020, uppmuntrar den alltmer röriga mempoolen Bitcoins kritiker samtidigt som den ger gafflar samtal om hastigheten och kostnaden för kryptovalutatransaktioner.

Under de senaste tre månaderna har den dagliga genomsnittliga Bitcoin-transaktionsavgiften varierat mellan $ 2,18 och $ 17,20; gör att köpa kaffe (eller andra konsumentköp) med Bitcoin mycket dyrt ~

Mempool kallas vanligtvis „väntarea“ för inkommande transaktioner innan de bekräftas, verifieras oberoende av varje nod som är ansluten till nätverket.

Förra gången mempool rensades till noll var den 1 januari i år. Redan innan dess blev mempoolavstånd redan en sällsynt händelse.

Till ett referenspris på 46 280 USD för BTC

Enligt Bitcoin-nätverksstatistikspårare på mempool.observer rekommenderas för närvarande en avgift på minst 93 sat / byte för att säkerställa att en transaktion ingår i det kommande blocket. Till ett referenspris på 46 280 USD för BTC och en medianstorlek på 224 byte per transaktion resulterar detta i en transaktionsavgift på 9,63 USD.

Tidigare idag steg den rekommenderade avgiften för nästa blockering till 141,9 sat / byte, enligt en liknande Twitter-baserad tjänst för övervakningsavgifter i Bitcoin-nätverket.

När du lär dig det svåra sättet att sänka / byta avgifter. Jag skickade en stor transaktion RÄTT innan mempool exploderade. Be några böner för mina MIA-satoshis att de hittar vägen hem säkert någon dag ..

Den 8 februari samlades sammanlagt 84,72 BTC i transaktionsavgifter, vilket motsvarar USD 2,05 miljoner i gruvintäkter. Transaktionsavgifterna hade varit ganska rimliga under större delen av november och december 2020, även efter att en svepande tjurmarknad pressade priserna över de tidigare rekordhöjderna.

Bitcoins främsta skalningslösning för andra lager, Lightning Network, bevittnar också rekordhöjder i deltagande nodräkning och dollarvärde för kumulativ BTC-kapacitet över alla kanaler.

Den 2 februari tillkännagav megaEx OKEx planer på att integrera Lightning i sina utbytesprocesser, vilket tjänar till att spara pengar i transaktionskostnadskostnader samtidigt som mempoolen inte belastas från deras transaktionskrav.

 

A rare ‚alien‘ NFT has been sold for 605 ETH

A rare ‚alien‘ NFT has been sold for 605 ETH, or over $850,000!

The market for collectible NFTs shows no sign of slowing down: sales of these tokens at exorbitant prices are now frequent

The market for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) continues to achieve impressive results: a very rare „alien“ CryptoPunks token was sold last Saturday for 605 Ether, which is equivalent to about $850,000.

CryptoPunks is generally considered to be the very first NFT project, as they were released even before the CryptoKitties, which also had the merit of pushing the world of non-fungible tokens Bitcoin Trader into mainstream awareness. The developers of CryptoPunks, Larva Labs, report that the „punks“ have generated a total sales volume of $26 million: in the last year, the average selling price of the punks was $6,199.

Each punk has unique attributes, such as background colour, accessories, and even some ultra-rare features, such as an „alien“ or „zombie“ appearance.

The punk sold today, #2890, is one of nine alien punks in existence

„Punk 2890 was purchased for 605 ETH by 0x24c5eb from 0x6611fe.“

The auction to grab the prized punk was heated throughout last week, so much so that even DeFi whale 0x_b1 had made a 500 ETH bid. The punk in question had last been sold in July 2017 for 8 ETH, meaning the owner got a 75x return on his investment.

The new owners are a group of investors that include FlamingoDAO, which describes itself as „a collective that supports and collects premium NFTs“. FlamingoDAO’s official Twitter account confirmed the purchase with a meme:

A Flamingo spokesperson stated:

„It’s simple: CryptoPunks is an innovative project, it predates the ERC 721 standard and cryptocurrencies. […] Aliens are the rarest form of punk, and we believe the acquired alien will be appreciated by collectors over time and become an iconic piece of digital art.“

Crypto-art collector @gmoneyNFT, who bought Punk for 140 ETH earlier this month, thinks the alien is a good investment despite the skyrocketing valuation:

„I think it was a great buy. As the world moves towards digital, being a ‚punk‘ in a virtual world will be increasingly important. It’s the way humans operate in the physical world. It won’t change in the digital realm.

Despite having long been considered a secondary use case for blockchain technology, sales like this one show that NFTs are just beginning to show their potential. NBA Topshot, a collectible highlight project from Dapper Labs, has proven to be very popular; Axie Infinity’s creatures have also been selling at impressive prices recently.

Kim Dotcom treedt officieel toe tot de Bitcoin Cash Movement.

De controversiële politieke activist is al lang betrokken bij de Bitcoin Cash-gemeenschap, maar wil deze nu populairder maken.

Kim Dotcom, politiek activist en oprichter van de nu verdwenen file hosting service MegaUpload, is „officieel“ lid geworden van de Bitcoin Cash (BCH) gemeenschap, via een tweet vanmorgen.

De aankondiging komt een jaar nadat Kim is overgestapt op het evangeliseren van Bitcoin Cash, waarbij ze de ‚giftige‘ en infantiele Bitcoin-gemeenschap als hoofdoorzaak aanhaalt.

Kim zei dat hij de inspanningen zal leiden om van BCH ’s werelds „toonaangevende oplossing voor elektronisch geld te maken“, en voegde eraan toe dat hij zal werken aan een grotere acceptatie van de cryptocrisis en dat hij zal samenwerken met online verkopers om het gebruikersbestand van BCH te vergroten.

De Duits-Finse ondernemer verwierf begin 2000 bekendheid nadat hij dotcom miljonair was geworden (vandaar de eigenaardige achternaam) en een uitbundig leven leidde. Hij werd in 2012 door de Amerikaanse overheid veroordeeld voor fraude. Sindsdien werkt hij als politiek activist in Nieuw-Zeeland en is hij een uitgesproken voorstander van crypto.

Ondertussen, toen hem gevraagd werd waarom Bitcoin Cash over Bitcoin gaat, zei Kim vandaag op Twitter: „Omdat het werkt. Lage kosten, snelle transacties, makkelijk te gebruiken en veilig. Ik keek naar alle cryptos om te gebruiken voor mijn aankomende nieuwe innovatie en Bitcoin Cash vinkte alle vakjes aan“.

Hij voegde eraan toe, „BCH is al geïmplementeerd bij 100K+ leveranciers en dat aantal neemt snel toe.“

De activist beweerde verder zijn netwerk en de kracht van „geniale marketing“ te gebruiken om Bitcoin Cash te populariseren boven andere cryptocurrency’s bij het grote publiek.

Giftige Bitcoiners brachten Kim Dotcom naar Bitcoin Cash.

Ondanks de commentaren, is Kim niet helemaal aan het rotzooien met Bitcoin. Hij zei in de commentaren van zijn tweet dat Bitcoin nu beter functioneerde als een opslagplaats van waardecryptocurrency (een punt dat zelfs fondsmanagers en eigenaren van technische bedrijven lijken te delen), terwijl Bitcoin Cash beter was voor het doen van online betalingen. Maar niet iedereen leek die mening te delen.

Bitcoin reaches 37,500 dollars, new altitude record 2021!

Bitcoin seems to be a lifebuoy for callers at sea. As America burns, bitcoin rises to a new all time high. The cryptocurrency rose to 37,500 USD this morning. This has also caused the market cap of the entire crypto bull scam market to rise to 1 trillion USD, an absolute milestone.

Bitcoin reaches top of channel

The price of bitcoin has been moving in a rising channel since mid-December. Yesterday the price found support at the center of the channel (the red line on the chart below). Now it gets exciting: does bitcoin break through the top? Or does the price drop back to the red line at $35,000 (€28,397)?

Marketcap

The total market capitalization has grown by more than 10% in the last 24 hours. This breaks the cryptomarket by 1 trillion dollars. An absolute record and new milestone in the history of the young market. One trillion is one million times one million.

Federal government’s crypto law – with a tailwind into the new year

While the global economy continues to groan under the corona pandemic, the German crypto industry is starting the new year with a tailwind. This is ensured by the federal government’s new crypto law, which is only waiting for the approval of the Bundestag.

Milestone: Cabinet Adopts Blockchain Securities Law

The first hurdle has been cleared: After the Federal Cabinet around Ministers Olaf Scholz and Christine Lambrecht passed their law on the issue of electronic securities last week, the domestic crypto industry rejoices at the upcoming location advantages. In future, digitally securitized securities should have the same status as their analogue, documented counterpart. Now only the Bundestag has to agree, which will probably not thwart the ministers‘ bill. The foundation stone for the federal government’s blockchain strategy has thus been laid.

Crypto values ​​vs. Crypto values: On the dissonance of German and European crypto regulation

The supranational coordination between the organs of the European Union and its member states has its pitfalls and bottlenecks. The regulations of one do not always go hand in hand with the implementation of the other. This also applies to the regulation of crypto values. In his guest commentary , specialist lawyer Lutz Auffenberg from the law firm Fin Law puts the German and European regulations on the dissection table – and in the process reveals many inconsistencies. It’s worth reading.

Every year again: Maduro wastes Petros at Christmas

Christmas is a time of giving: this is what Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro also seems to have in mind. Last week he announced that he would be giving out half a petro to Venezuelan pensioners and public sector workers as a Christmas bonus. However, the fact that no one gives completely without intention also applies to the autocrat. With the initiative, this kills two proverbial birds. On the one hand, Maduro seems to want to buy back part of the long-lost support in the population with the action. On the other hand, the government will want to continue pushing the state Bitcoin Revolution, which, according to reports, is still hardly used almost two years after its publication.

Hard bandages: Estonia takes action against letterbox companies

Thanks to cheap electricity and benevolent public authorities, Estonia has long been considered the Mecca of the blockchain industry. Now it seems to be over. After companies around the world took advantage of the favorable local legislation for a long time and moved their mailboxes to the Baltic States, the government is only now making an official announcementAccording to the authorities, licensed more than 1,000 crypto companies with „minimal ties to the country“ in the past year. The authorities simply do not have the capacity to oversee them. Now new legal regulations are on the way. The promised land seems to wither for foreign profiteers.

Former PBoC governor: Digital yuan is not a world currency

In the books of Western monetary authorities and governments, the digital yuan is one of the biggest nightmares of the coming years. For many, the currency project embodies the sick arms of Chinese imperialism, which is now also interfering in the economic order. A former governor of the PBoC is now giving the West a cautious all-clear: According to Zhou Xiaochua, Beijing is not aiming with the digital currency to replace the monetary system of other countries. However, the CBDC could facilitate cross-border trade, reports the South China Morning Post. However, diplomatic rhetoric is unlikely to calm the foreign policy hawks among Western leaders.

Iota joins the new blockchain and IoT research laboratory at TU Wien

The German crypto project Iota joins the blockchain and IoT research laboratory at the Vienna University of Technology.

The Iota Foundation, the nonprofit organization behind the German crypto project Iota , the Iota Tangle and Miota, today announced that it will join the latest Christian Doppler Laboratory in Austria

The laboratory, which is located at the Technical University of Vienna, is called CDL Blockchain Technologies for the Internet of Things (CDL-BOT) and is the first such laboratory to focus on the combination of blockchain technology and the Internet of Things (IoT ) specialized.

The laboratory was opened on November 26th by Margarethe Schramböck, Austria’s Federal Minister for Digitization and Economy. The focus will be on the research and development of partnerships between private companies and public-sector companies that want to use Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) in practical areas of application.

In addition to Iota, the company Pantos will also join the CDL-BOT, which calls itself „the first multi-blockchain token system“. Bitcoin Bank review is in turn a subsidiary of BitPanda, a Vienna-based trading platform for crypto currencies and digital assets.

Professor Stefan Schulte, who is responsible for the management of the new laboratory, explains in this context:

“With the increasing number of application areas for DLT-based payments and data exchange in the Internet of Things, new DLTs have to be integrated again and again, which is why interoperability between the DLTs is becoming increasingly important. I am pleased to be able to research together with the IOTA Foundation and Pantos in order to find new solutions for this immensely important subject area. “
The German crypto project Iota, which was originally founded in 2014 under the name Jinn, has set itself the goal of becoming the standard for connecting DLT and IoT. An area that is growing steadily and still has great growth potential. By using the Iota standard, IoT devices can automatically transfer data and payments to other devices that are also located in the Iota network.

On November 24th, Iota carried out an update for its own standard, which is supposed to improve the interoperability between devices and systems that use Iota-based software. In October, the Iota Foundation announced that it would be working with the Japanese government on a project to transform the country’s industrial infrastructure using Iota.

Short of BTC? Tokenized Bitcoins could contribute to a supply crisis

WBTC, BTCB and other tokenized Bitcoin implementations could contribute to an imminent BTC shortage

In a blog post published Friday, Binance announced the reintroduction of BTCB, a form of tokenized Bitcoin designed to bring liquidity from the world’s largest cryptocurrency to the Binance Smart Chain DeFi ecosystem.

However, perhaps HODLers are celebrating the renewed interest in BTCB for another reason: any Bitcoin stuck on BSC could contribute to an imminent supply crisis in BTC.

First announced in 2019, Binance initially viewed tokenized Bitcoin as a vehicle through which traders could gain exposure to cross-chain assets without leaving Binance Chain. Since then, however, the usefulness of this kind of asset has grown out of all proportion due to the early maturation of the DeFi ecosystem.

As an example, WBTC (a form of Bitcoin tokenized on Ethereum) has witnessed a huge success since its launch in January 2019:

it currently ranks 14th in the cryptocurrency ranking in terms of market cap, and has found significant adoption in protocols such as Aave and Uniswap. The smart contracts of both platforms are among the 10 largest WBTC owners.

In the published article, Binance pointed out that similar adoption might be possible for BTCB. The asset could be used to issue stablecoins with native BSC protocols like QIAN and Venus, collateral for loan protocols like CREAM, or in yield farming and liquidity mining protocols like Beefy, Bakery and Pancake.

According to Binance’s „Proof of Assets“ page, there are currently more than 9,000 Bitcoins on BSC, for a value equivalent to over $181 million. However, the blog post specifies that only 2,000 are in circulation.

Other blockchain with smart contract features seem destined to contribute to the growing shortage of BTC. Solana’s cross-chain Wormhole project will transform ERC-20 tokens into SPL tokens, including WBTC. In addition, Interlay is using funding support from the Web3 Foundation to build a trustless bridge with the goal of bringing Bitcoin tokens to Polkadot. The launch of Interlay is scheduled for early 2021.

If the success of Bitcoin tokenized and cross-chain projects continues to increase, institutions determined to absorb BTC’s offer could face an increasingly serious shortage. Aaron Wright, co-founder of OpenLaw, reported in a Tweet a possible future of this kind:

„Currently, 0.6%+ of Bitcoin is tokenized and put to work on Ethereum. What will happen when it reaches 10%?“

$ 1.200 US Stimulus Check ora vale quasi $ 3.000 se investito in Bitcoin

L’assegno di $ 1200 di stimolo che è stato dato ai cittadini statunitensi come mezzo di aiuto contro la pandemia COVID-19 varrebbe ora quasi $ 3000 se investito in BTC.

Sono passati circa sette mesi da quando il governo degli Stati Uniti ha inviato i primi assegni di stimolo del valore di 1.200 dollari a molti cittadini. È interessante notare che tale importo ora varrebbe quasi $ 3.000 se investito in Bitcoin Revolution poiché il prezzo dell’asset si è notevolmente apprezzato da allora, a differenza del dollaro.

Controlli dello stimolo: la storia

I governi del mondo sono stati colti di sorpresa quando all’inizio dell’anno è scoppiata la pandemia COVID-19. Uno dei primi ordini del giorno includeva la presa di una vita regolare come la conoscevamo. I blocchi a livello nazionale hanno iniziato a verificarsi a livello globale. Le strade si svuotarono mentre le persone rimanevano nelle loro case.

È ancora discutibile se queste misure estreme abbiano avuto un impatto positivo reale sulla diffusione del virus mesi dopo. Tuttavia, una cosa certa è che ha avuto conseguenze reali sul lavoro di molte persone e, naturalmente, sulle loro finanze.

Le economie più potenti hanno risposto emettendo i cosiddetti pacchetti di stimolo. Funzionano come sconti fiscali e incentivi per prevenire la crisi finanziaria fornendo allo stesso tempo denaro contante ai cittadini in difficoltà.

Il paese più grande del mondo per PIL nominale ha guidato la carica con enormi accordi di pacchetto del valore di trilioni di dollari. Ogni adulto che guadagnava meno di $ 75.000 all’anno negli Stati Uniti aveva diritto a un assegno del valore di $ 1.200. I primi assegni di questo tipo sono stati spediti a metà aprile.

$ 1.200 in BTC ad aprile valgono quasi $ 3.000 oggi

Sebbene la maggior parte dei rapporti all’epoca indicasse che le persone stavano usando i loro dollari ottenuti di recente per cibo e affitto, è convincente verificare cosa sarebbe successo se fossero stati effettivamente investiti in bitcoin. Dopotutto, il più grande scambio di criptovalute con sede negli Stati Uniti Coinbase ha visto un sostanziale aumento dei depositi del valore di esattamente $ 1.200 durante quel periodo.

La sempre creativa comunità di criptovaluta ha stabilito un profilo Twitter seguendo come sta andando l’ipotetico investimento in BTC. Tiene traccia di quanto varrebbe $ 1.200 se quei soldi fossero stati investiti in bitcoin il 15 aprile.

A quel tempo, la criptovaluta principale veniva scambiata tra $ 6,600 e $ 6,800. Quindi, se qualcuno avesse davvero scambiato $ 1.200 per BTC a $ 6.600, sarebbe finito con poco più di 0,18 bitcoin. Oggi, l’attività viene scambiata intorno a $ 16.000. In quanto tale, la stessa quantità di 0,18 bitcoin varrebbe a nord di $ 2.900. Ciò significherebbe un ROI del 142% in soli sette mesi.

E i dollari americani?

Vale anche la pena esplorare cosa è successo da allora con il dollaro. Mentre BTC è salito alle stelle in valore, la valuta di riserva mondiale è effettivamente diminuita rispetto ad altre fiat.

Il dollaro è stato scambiato intorno a 0,920 contro l’euro a metà aprile, vicino al massimo annuale. Da allora ha perso l’8% ed è sceso a 0,845.

Anche l’USD ha perso oltre il 6% contro la sterlina britannica e lo yuan cinese. Il famoso economista statunitense Peter Schiff ha predetto un futuro ancora peggiore per il dollaro, affermando che anche l‘ iperinflazione non è del tutto fuori dal quadro.

D’altra parte, il co-fondatore di Gemini Tyler Winklevoss ritiene che i suddetti pacchetti di stimoli continueranno a danneggiare l’USD e ha osservato che sono un „codice per acquistare Bitcoin“.
