Ethereum Falls to a New Low Ethereum Falls to a New Low
Ethereum has fallen to a new low since reaching the all-time high of $1,420 in January, with its price now down by nearly 90% to $155. There appears to be no specific reason for this fall, but it might be due to the Bitcoin Cash debacle especially as Ripples market cap now stands about $3 billion above eth's. That's a very first, with ripple never able to keep second position except for a few hours, while this time it has done so for about three days. Ethereum's price is now at just about where it fell after the crash from $420 in May-June 2017. Yet it doesn't look like this has much to do with eth, but with bitcoin.

ProgPoW Dev Admits Nvidia Gear Performs Better Under the Proposed New Algo
An anonymous individual going by the name ofIkmyeong Na has stated Nvidia gear would perform better under ProgPoW, but that's not the intended design. Speaking in broken English as he claims to be South Korean, Ikmyeongsaid: It looks like cause AMD gets a lower hash than Nvidia, but it doesn't mean the algo is for Nvidia.Think of why AMD gets more hashrate than CPU.AMD still works fine however due to GPU core usage it don't get any benefit from ProgPoW mine like we did for Ethash. Asked: So it is true that ProgPoW favors Nvidia Ikmyeong says: No Nvidia is being too good for ProgPoW.That's all.And if AMD releases their card with better GPU core usage it will overcome Nvidia cards.Meaning there is no reason to benefit specific brand of cards, we don't optimise our algoritms to be better for specific GPU brands.But GPU manufactures should do the optimization for algorithms if they want more sales on their card.

Ethermine Almost Calls ETH Dev a Shill Ethermine Almost Calls ETH Dev a Shill
It has barely been two days into a debate over a proposed algorithmic change of ethereums Proof of Work (PoW) and already questions of who is paying who are flying about. This time, however, is by a representative of ethereums biggest mining pool, ethermine, who, speaking to Afri Schoedon of Parity,says: It is kind of interesting that suddenly, after meeting with Linzhi you are all of the sudden strongly against ProgPoW & help distribute all related FUD going currently around. This strongly looks like successful lobbing by asic manufacturers. The ethermine rep then links to a post which claims Schoedonis colluding with ASIC manufacturer afterSchoedon publicly stated he was meeting with Linzhi presumably to take their view on certain allegations that the ProgPoW team has connections to Nvidia.

The ProgPoW Team Now Apparently Planning to Chain-Split Ethereum Prior to Constantinople The ProgPoW Team Now Apparently Planning to Chain-Split Ethereum Prior to Constantinople
An anonymous individual going by the name of Ikmyeong Na, who says he is a ProgPoW developer and worked on it for months, has stated an Ethereum ProgPoW node has been launched with the aim of chain-spliting ethereum before or at the time of Constantinople in three days. He or she says: Ethereum ProgPoW project started to create an alternative ethereum node with native ProgPoW adoption, based on Geth, the most famous ethereum client and the work base from Holiman from ethereum foundation. He further says I started to create a codebase of Ethereum ProgPoW since last October, and we've excluded Constantinople support from the codebase.

ETC Block Rewards Go Crazy ETC Block Rewards Go Crazy
ETC miners are now receiving as much as 200 per block (pictured above), rather than the usual 4 ETC per block. Nor is this some site or explorer glitch. Another explorer shows an incredible 424 ETC was given to a miner in block rewards. The ETC network recently experienced a 51% attack, but that shouldn't allow the major miner to change the consensus rules, such as block rewards. The reason for these very high rewards, instead, seems to be because someone is paying huge transaction fees. In the 424 block mentioned above, 420 have been paid in fees. As the ETC network is under a 51% attack, bribing miners with huge fees might be one way of lowering the chances that your transaction is reversed.

The ProgPoW Team Admits They're Working With Nvidia and AMD The ProgPoW Team Admits They're Working With Nvidia and AMD
After we detailed accusations of corporate favoritism by a team behind a proposed ethereum Proof of Work (PoW) change, the semi-anonymous ProgPow team has now effectively admitted they're working with both Nvidia and AMD. Someone called IfDefElse says: We were lucky enough to have an email review that included engineers from the Ethereum Foundation, Ethereum Core Devs, Nvidia and AMD. The Nvidia and AMD engineers gave the algorithm a generally positive review. They do not state what the feedback was from the Ethereum Foundation or core devs. Nor do they say who those core devs were. Of AMD, they say: This piece was first seen by us on 2019-01-12 21:18:16.

Bitcoin 0Day Discovers Only $54 Worth of Bitcoin, $14 XRP and 0.00002 ETH Are Vulnerable Bitcoin 0Day Discovers Only $54 Worth of Bitcoin, $14 XRP and 0.00002 ETH Are Vulnerable
Crypto researchers have discovered what they claim is a previously unknown vulnerability in digital signatures which happens to affect only $54 worth of bitcoin out of its circa $70 billion market cap. The problem appears to be some faulty set-up in hardware, multi-sig, or perhaps a custom hand coded design that generates a not very random number (nounce) when signing with the same private key twice or more. In giving a summary, Joachim Breitner, one of the researchers, says: When you create a cryptographic signatures using ECDSA (the elliptic curve digital signature algorithm), you need to come up with the nonce, a 256 bit random number. It is really important to use a different nonce every time, otherwise it is easy for someone else to take your signatures (which might be stored for everyone to read on the Bitcoin blockchain) and calculate your private key using relatively simple math, and with your private key they can spend all your Bitcoins. In fact, there is evidence that people out there continuously monitor the blockchains for signatures with such repeated nonces and immediately extract the money from compromised keys.

What's Gone Wrong With Crypto Miners  And Why Are Cryptos so Volatile What's Gone Wrong With Crypto Miners And Why Are Cryptos so Volatile
Exactly one year ago ethereum stood at around $50. That's at a time when the ecosystem was far smaller, tokenization was not yet a thing, ICOs were not widespread, and ethereum processed only 100,000 transactions. As more learned of the currency and platform, in the crypto space and outside it, price rose to a $420, but instead of holding that level, it suddenly crashed to $150. The ecosystem, however, was growing by all measures, so price rose again to $400. Then quickly crashed once more to $200. Demand outstripped supply considerably so a high of $1,400 was quickly reached within 4 weeks. Then, another somewhat slower crash followed, sending it down to the current price of around $400 in about four months. This share was discovered by us on 2019-01-08 21:00:05.

Calvin Ayre Concedes Defeat Calvin Ayre Concedes Defeat
Calvin Ayre of Coingeek, the main player behind a minority chain-split from BCH to BSV, has effectively admitted defeat just about one week after the fork. Ayre says: It is CoinGeek's opinion that the two chains are now so far apart and have such divergent plans ahead that there is just no path back to joining them. We also no longer want the name Bitcoin Cash BCH as to us, Bitcoin SV is the original Bitcoin not the original Bitcoin Cash (whatever that even means). We understand that having nChain no longer fighting with them over roadmaps was the single most important issue to the ABC side. nChain tells me they are happy to leave ABC chain alone if they enact replay protection and do a permanent split.
