From the profit potential of Bitcoin and Apple, to a surprise Ethereum upgrade, here?s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto. Anthony Pompliano, the founder of crypto investment firm Morgan Creek Digital, says Warren Buffett should have bought Bitcoin instead of Apple. The recent plunge in Apple?s stock price has cost Buffett nearly $4 billion in profit. Long term, however, his $1 billion investment in the tech giant back in 2016 is now worth $1.4 billion ? a substantial gain. But, if Buffett had invested in Bitcoin instead, the $1 billion investment would be worth a whopping $8.7 billion. This piece was retrieved by us on January 06, 2019 10:01 PM.

A Look Back at 2018: The Year of Enterprise Ethereum A Look Back at 2018: The Year of Enterprise Ethereum
?Proof of concept? is a phrase heard often when it comes to Enterprise Ethereum. It?s a stage. It means that a company is working to understand how blockchain can help them and in what way, and how it should be implemented from a technical perspective. Before 2018, many companies entered this stage and stopped there. Perhaps enterprise blockchain was in the ?early adopters? phase, in a lifecycle similar to Geoffrey Moore?s technology adoption life cycle from ?Crossing the Chasm.? Were we straining to cross the chasm of enterprise adoption? For Enterprise Ethereum, and for other new technologies and platforms, the path to mainstream adoption will perhaps follow the three steps: 1) ideation 2) conceptualization and 3) actual implementation. Up until this year, organizations worked to conceive practical use cases, or to actually find the time, resources and buy-in to commit. After all, blockchain is designed to coordinate multi-company processes, so getting buy-in across multiple parties takes time. This item was found by us on January 06, 2019 9:54 PM.

Where Will Ethereum's Price Go Towards The End of 2017    Live Bitcoin News Where Will Ethereum's Price Go Towards The End of 2017 Live Bitcoin News
Even the most optimistic observer could not have ever predicted that ethereum?s price would jump from $8, in the beginning of the year, to approach the $400 mark within 6 months. Given the fact that its price rose by around 5000% during the past 6 months, ethereum is by far the top gainer among all altcoins in the year 2017. So, where will price go towards the end of the year? Will it continue rising? or is this bullish rally a big bubble that will burst soon? Even though many observers might think that ethereum?s recent price surge is just a bubble that will burst sooner or later, others, including me, think that this is just the beginning of the public?s perception of the real value underlying ethereum. Ethereum advocates may go as far as claiming that ethereum is even more valuable than bitcoin itself for many reasons such as: This entry was first found by us on January 06, 2019 9:33 PM.

GpuShack Drops Bitcoin Support in Favor of Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin GpuShack Drops Bitcoin Support in Favor of Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin
Quite a few companies no longer like Bitcoin all that much. This trend is only normal given the recent network issues. GpuShack is finally ditching Bitcoin support altogether. They have come up with three other currencies usable for platform purchases. Unsurprisingly, these currencies include Bitcoin Cash. Ethereum, an even Litecoin. It is evident this company wants to focus on the future of cryptocurrency first and foremost. Several companies have dropped Bitcoin payment support over the past few months. In most cases, this has to do with network fees or slow transactions. Right now, neither of these situations are present as far as Bitcoin is concerned They tend to pop up rather regularly though, which causes a lot of friction. For businesses, dealing with such a semi-functional payment method simply isn?t acceptable. Especially those interested in cryptocurrencies will look for alternatives first and foremost.

Bittrex Users can no Longer Generate new Ethereum and ERC20 Token Deposit Addresses Bittrex Users can no Longer Generate new Ethereum and ERC20 Token Deposit Addresses
Some interesting things are happening in the world of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. More specifically, the BItrex exchange has made another controversial decision. They no longer allow users to create new ETH and asset deposit addresses for the time being. Existing addresses are not affected by this decision. All of this is the direct result of incredibly high gas prices plaguing the Ethereum network. All major cryptocurrencies struggle with major network fees these days. Bitcoin has become far too expensive to spend, for most people. Although the costs are coming down a bit, there?s still a two-digit fee attached to transactions. It now seems Ethereum has similar issues to contend with. The gas prices are going up, which doesn?t bode well for ETH supporters.

Key Points of the EOS Proof-of-Stake VS Ethereum Proof-of-Work Argument   Live Bitcoin News Key Points of the EOS Proof-of-Stake VS Ethereum Proof-of-Work Argument Live Bitcoin News
If you have been trying to make sense of the Ethereum VS EOS debate, you?ll most likely have heard about the terms proof-of-stake and proof-of-work. One of the biggest talking points of the EOS VS Ethereum debate is the consensus protocols of both platforms. EOS uses a proof-of-stake (POS) protocol while Ethereum uses a Proof-of-work protocol. Interestingly, the difference in the consensus system of the two coins is influencing how investors and traders perceive them. For instance, The price of EOS cryptocurrency has jumped 107% this year while Ethereum has lost 10% in the same period. However, for the average cryptocurrency trader/investor, not much effort has been placed into explaining the key similarities and differences, and why such distinctive features could influence your trading and investment decisions. This piece examines the key features of proof-of-stake VS proof-of-work. This publication was first seen by us on January 06, 2019 9:17 PM. See www.livebitcoinnews.com for additional posts.

A method of cryptographic operation pioneered by Zcash has been tipped by Vitalik Buterin as a potential scaling solution for the Ethereum network. The Ethereum network has come under increasing criticism in recent months regarding its inability to scale effectively. Despite retaining its position as the second crypto to bitcoin it the token has been suffering badly in the bear market and recently seen a mass sell-off by ICOs, hinting at negative prospects for its future. Many of the complaints leveled at the network include the apparent user-unfriendly nature of its dapps as well as its inability to scale.

It would appear that Ethereum is inching ever closer to successfully integrating Sharding ? the experimental second-layer scaling solution that promises to help Ethereum scale ? into its network. More specifically, the long-time blockchain developer and researcher Vlad Zamfir has now produced the world?s first proof-of-concept for the new scaling technology. Zamfir reportedly coded the PoC at the Ethereum hackathon ETH Berlin, and he noted in a subsequent interview that all Ethereum developers would soon be able to run the proof-of-concept on their machines. ?We?re still working on the integration but check back in a week and it should be something where we have instructions and you can follow the instructions and get it running on your computer,?

Vitalik Buterin Teases Improved Ethereum Scalability - Toshi Times Vitalik Buterin Teases Improved Ethereum Scalability - Toshi Times
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin recently took to Twitter to announce that an implementation of so-called Sharding is seemingly evident. Sharding represents a new technology which holds great potential for improving Ethereum scaling, something which is desperately needed if Ethereum is to support a variety of decentralized apps that could house potentially millions of users. If implemented successfully, Sharding would go a long way towards achieving this. Buterin tweeted the brief message ?Sharding is coming?, together with a link to a GitHub page, containing a working proof-of-concept of Sharding. At the moment, the Ethereum blockchain network can only support a maximum of around 15 transactions per second. Furthermore, every single transaction needs to be processed by all the nodes in the network. This presents an obvious problem if the technology and blockchain are to gain more widespread traction and adoption, and needs to be solved. Sharding promises to do just that, through making the verification process for smart contracts and transactions more direct and streamlined.

Researchers Are Exploring Ways For Ethereum To Perform 17,000 Transactions Per Second - Toshi Times Researchers Are Exploring Ways For Ethereum To Perform 17,000 Transactions Per Second - Toshi Times
Ethereum researchers are exploring new ways to improve Ethereum and introduced a solution called Snark-based side chain which could scale the network to 17,000 transactions per second. The researcher?s Authors BarryWhitehat, Harry R, Alex Gluchowski, Yondon Fu, and Philippe Castonguay introduced a solution similar to Plasma, a snark-based side that is an off-chain solution which would allow users to send and receive tokens outside the Ethereum mainnet. This new finding allows tens of thousands of transactions per second. Snark-Based chain operators are responsible for closing a channel of transactions and uploading it to the mainnet of Ethereum as a single transaction. That means, before the release of a channel that is composed of many thousand transactions made between users on the Ethereum network, users can request withdrawals at the smart contract level. If the operator fails to serve this queue inside a given time limit, they assume data is unavailable. The operator is removed, and new operators are introduced. The researchers explain that: This entry was first seen by us on January 06, 2019 6:25 PM.

Microsoft Developing New Ethereum Based PoA Algorithm for Azure - Toshi Times Microsoft Developing New Ethereum Based PoA Algorithm for Azure - Toshi Times
It would seem that software giant Microsoft is making some strides in adopting decentralized technologies, as its cloud computing service Azure is now delving further into the world of decentralized computing. More accurately, this news came in a recent blog post, which expanded on the series of benefits being brought to Azure through this most recent venture. Specifically, it will see an Ethereum network algorithm used in a Proof-of-Authority product. In the public statement, a software engineer for Microsoft Azure ? Cody Born ? argued that Azure and Microsoft have already had ?great traction with our support of Azure?. This comment refers to Microsoft?s development of an Ethereum-powered Azure platform, which the Redmond-based firm initially revealed in October of 2015. In this latest statement, Born went on to detail how extensive feedback from the community has allowed Microsoft to design and develop its next Ethereum ledger product. More specifically, this refers to the Ethereum Proof-of-Authority on Azure. Born notes that Proof-of-Authority protocols are especially suitable for so-called ?permission networks?, where all participants are already known and trusted. In addition to this, Azure?s new Ethereum-based Proof-of-Authority is said to be developed with businesses in mind ? effectively making it enterprise-ready from the onset of the network. Azure also reports that they have designed the network to have a highly available network presence in order to be less susceptible to have nodes go down on the network with disadvantageous consequences. Furthermore, Azure has announced that they will include support for Parity?s web-assembly, meaning that developers will be able to code and program smart contracts in either C, C++, or Rust. This new Proof-of-Authority algorithm should also allow developers to construct decentralized applications (dApps) in a more effective manner. Nonetheless, it should be stressed that these dApps will likely nearly exclusively be used in a consortium or private networks. The post is fairly technical, but it goes on to detail how the product will also include Azure Monitor, which will be used to track statistics relating to relevant nodes and networks. Azure also revealed that the Proof-of-Authority deployment will be accompanied by a governance dApp, which is intended to ease voting and validate delegation. In summary, the addition of Ethereum-based technology to the popular Azure service is a notable milestone in the adoption of blockchain-related technology.
