Altcoins, especially low caps, have been taking a beating while Bitcoin makes its run toward great heights and ETH keeps pace.
Ethereum’s Ether is one of the top cryptocurrencies. The Ethereum network uses a smart-contract system that facilitates the creation of tokens, decentralized applications, and more.
The token native to this network is called “ether.”
This section contains articles on Ether, ERC-20 Tokens, and the Ethereum platform.
FACT: The ethereum network is used to create about 1/2 of all ICOs. This means many coins on the market are Ethereum based.
Greyscale is going to launch the Ethereum Trust to the public. Up until now the trust has only been available to accredited investors.
One could argue, based on some factors like Simple moving averages that the BTC-ETH pair is bearish and at the same time the BTC-USD pair is bullish. It is the same for many alts.
According to CoinDesk, according to a CFTC insider, regulators are ready to approve Ethereum Futures provided it “ticks all the right boxes.”
ETH is setting up for a potential breakout. All it needs to do is do what so many other coins (LTC, BTC, BCH, and more) have already done.
The Constantinople hard fork is occurring over the next 24 hours. The average person has to do absolutely nothing. Meanwhile, those running their own nodes need to update their software.
Most Ethereum users need to do nothing for the Ethereum Constantinople / St. Petersburg upgrade planned at block number 7,280,000 (predicted to occur Thursday, February 28, 2019). The exact date is subject to change.
Coinbase has confirmed they will support the Constantinople Ethereum (ETH) network upgrade. This planned update requires a hard fork.
When a coin does a hard fork, two identical blockchains exist until changes to one of the chains is made. To avoid transaction replays (transactions made on one chain being broadcast on the other), at least one chain must implement replay protection (developers of one chain must change the format of transactions to make them unique).
Recent reporting is claiming that both Ethereum Nowa (ETN) and Ethereum Classic Vision (ETCV) are scam forks that are stealing people’s ETH. This doesn’t have any bearing on the legit Constantinople fork.
