Crypto 'prophets' are speaking

Vitalik Buterin believes in a bright future for Ethereum and denies the financial power of Rothschilds, and 'bubble' predictions by Joost van der Burgt.

Vitalik Buterin stated that the Ethereum network will now be capable of handling millions of transactions per second

The key to this speed is sharding and plasma.

There are already many solutions for blockchain scalability. Some blockchains were created to maintain a high transactional capacity, for example, EOS, Zilliqa, QuarkChain, or IOTA (okay, that’s a DAG technically, but it serves the same purpose). Other blockchains are relatively slow because they were the first on the market, like Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, they are still the most popular because of their role as first movers. Nevertheless, they desperately need scaling solutions. The Lightning Network for Bitcoin is already up and running. Ethereum was intentionally designed in this way, with the aim of eventually having a 2nd and 3rd layer. Now they are nearly complete. Sharding divides the network into hundreds and thousands of groups, where each one runs their own transactions. This can help potentially scale the network to thousands of transactions per second. But, the most important solution is Plasma. Plasma is being developed by the OmiseGo team, and it's near completion. This will allow Ethereum to scale to millions of transactions per second. Is it enough for corporate and mass adoption? Definitely. Big companies are deeply interested in Ethereum, and it seems unlikely that it will be dethroned by another competitor. When all these solutions are fully developed, we'll see hundreds, if not thousands, of reasons for using Ethereum. And it seems that it's going to happen pretty soon.

Joost van der Burgt from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco declares Bitcoin a bubble

According to van der Burgt, it follows a classical chart of bubbles. Right now we’re still at an early stage, and the major profit-taking is yet to happen.

Every week we see a new doom prophet and, alternatively, a new bull prediction. But this one is really hard to believe. Joost van der Burgt predicts that Bitcoin is still in the early phases of profit-taking, and we haven’t see the real dip yet. But he thinks that it's possible at this stage for Bitcoin to continue the fall. We see an immense interest from new big investors, and we're moving slowly to the point of institutional investors entering the market. You should take this into account when making a prediction. A big injection of new institutional money will keep crypto afloat, at least for the next 2—3 years.

Vitalik Buterin doesn't believe that the Rothschilds will be able to control the crypto market

He said that their influence won’t affect the market and that they can release any currencies they want.

Vitalik doesn't believe in Rothschilds’ conspiracy and thinks that they can't influence the crypto market. He could be totally right. Let's not forget that the peak of their power was long ago, in the 19th century. Of course, they are still considered wealthy and powerful. However, this idea is common opinion, left over from earlier times when they had influence over half of Europe. When you exert control for more than two or three centuries, people have the impression that your dominance will remain permanent. Now, in the 21st century, we have many wealthy people in the world but the names Rothschild and Rockefeller are still synonymous with 'wealth'. Let's not forget that their capitals, for the most part, are stored in shares and real estate. They don't have that much cash to manipulate the world markets or even corner the crypto market. Therefore, it's time to stop treating these names like the be-all and end-all in financial advice.

Is Ethereum Really ‘A Thing of the Past’ As Tron’s Justin Sun Claims?

The co-founders of Ethereum and Tron have recently engaged in a battle of wits on Twitter. In a recent interview, Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum had commented on the competition between Ethereum and Tron. He claimed that he would “lose hope in humanity” if Tron usurps Ethereum. Justin Sun came with a witty response on Twitter satirically praising Ethereum while at the same time diplomatically placing it to a veteran status; a thing from the past. Recently, a Chinese Institution also ranked Tron above Ethereum in its list of Public Blockchains. When #TRON succeed, we will build a monument in memory of #ethereum! @VitalikButerin will be remembered for his tremendous contribution in #blockchain industry! #TRX #BTT https://t.co/ig3Yg50NND — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) March 24, 2019 Ethereum vs Tron: let’s Look At the Facts Ethereum, released in 2015 is the pioneering Dapps Platform currently placed second w.r.t total market capitalization. Tron Foundation was initiated in 2017 on the Ethereum platform itself. However, it is far more capable can Ethereum in terms of scalability and has also implemented Proof of Stake (PoS) on its Blockchain. Tron is currently ranked 11th w.r.t total market capitalization. Transactions per day Ethereum transactions per day chart The transactions on Tron are four times that conducted on Ethereum. Therefore, the usability of Tron is far greater than Ethereum. The number of transactions on Ethereum is primarily in the 500k-600k range. No. of transactions per day on Tron While the number of transactions executed on Tron per day is ranging in the 1.5 M to 2.2 M range, the volatility in the ‘number of transactions’ on Tron is considered significant. The transactions are ranging from 2.9 M to 1.5 M in fourteen days. The number of Dapps that follow TRC-20 protocol is increasing at a rate of one new Dapp every day. The race to the Top The Total Market Capitalization of Ethereum is almost $13 billion more than Tron. The total circulating supply of Tron is 66.68 billion, while the total quantity of Ether (ETH) tokens is 105.5 Million. Therefore, to overcome a difference of 13 billion dollars, Tron would have to gain ten times its current price while the price of Ethereum remains the same. The growth of Tron is exponential. Nevertheless, looking at the current statistic and development of Ethereum, Buterin’s Ethereum might have the upper hand on Tron in terms of price. However, the reward vs. risk ratio on Tron is comparatively less than Ethereum at current prices. Moreover, Tron leads in front of Ethereum in terms of technical prowess. Hence, only time will tell whether Justin Sun’s claims are really true. What are your views on which platform be the ultimate leader in Dapps and smart contract development?  The post Is Ethereum Really ‘A Thing of the Past’ As Tron’s Justin Sun Claims? appeared first on Coingape.
