Ethereum Prepares for Constantinople

Ethereum Prepares for Constantinople

The community is watching the Ethereum Constantinople Hardfork and how it will affect miners and holders. The fork will occur when block #7080000 is reached by tomorrow, 16 January

The Constantinople hardfork prepares Ethereum for the ultimate consensus move from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. Reduction of gas fees and mining rewards, the delay of the ‘Difficulty Bomb’, and an optimum smart contract execution are the goals of the five Ethereum Improvement Proposals (EIPs). This is Ethereum’s third hardfork for the month.

New Coin Tickers from Constantinople

Coins from the Classic Vision Hardfork, which is the first fork for January, will gain the ticker ETCV. Three ETCV will be distributed for each piece of ETH a holder has. Coins from the Ethereum Nowa (ETN) hardfork, the second for the month, has the ticker ETN and will be distributed with a 1:1 ratio to ETH holders.

Those who are in control of their private keys will automatically receive the new coins. Those who have their ETH in exchanges will gain the coins once the exchange supports the hardforks.

Various exchanges announced their support such as Binance, Coinbase, Huobi Global, OKEx, Kucoin, Bibox, IDEX, and HitBTC.

Total Constantinople Fork Ready Clients are 1548 (46.7%) by now.

A Successful Binance DEX Mainnet Could See Binance Coin (BNB) Prices Double

  Binance coin up 17.1 percent in the last week Testnet launch live, users free to test the DEX and Binance chain explorer Transactional volumes double from Dec 2018   BNB is back to the top 10, and with increasing volumes and DEX and explorer test net, coin holders are likely to reap big profits. So far, Binance coin is up 17.1 percent and back to the top 10. Binance Coin (BNB) Price Analysis Fundamentals Like Ethereum’s ETH, Binance Coin is a utility token in the Binance chain network. It is a tool for incentivizing use and so far, the coin is rallying. Perhaps induced by the overly successful BitTorrent’s BTT ICO, the currency is retesting key resistance levels of 2018. Adding to the bullish impetus is news that both the Binance Coin and the Bitcoin DEX testnet is now open to the public. The new release will allow testing of the Binance Coin chain explorer as well as the Web Wallet. Binance said this about the new testnet: “Binance Chain is a new blockchain developed and released by Binance. Binance DEX is a high performance and user-friendly platform built on top of Binance Chain, where users can create, issue and trade digital assets.” To get started in what Binance describes as a standard for DEXs, all a user needs to do is set up a new wallet, unlock the wallet, transfer assets and place orders right away. The eventual launch of the mainnet will be very bullish for Binance coin as users of the Binance DEX will have to pay for gas to power transactions. Gas and fees are quoted in BNB only and assuming there is an immediate shift from centralized exchanges to unhackable Binance DEX–with better liquidity and UIs, then BNB holders stand to benefit. Candlestick Arrangements Thus far, the coin is up 17.1 percent in the last week. Aside from favorable candlestick arrangement, the sole reason behind this week’s expansion may be because of DEX testnet. As we said, Binance is yet to announce the mainnet launch, but from the chart, the path of least resistance is upwards. A simple Fibonacci retracement tool between the BNB’s high low show that prices are finding support off the 78.6 percent level and with increasing volumes, bulls are back. Technically and when we draw guidance from Fibonacci retracement rules, the reaction at 78.6 percent level often leads to a retest of recent highs and in that case ideal targets may be 2017 highs of $26. All the same, before BNB explode, modest targets will be at Q2 2018 highs of $18. Technical Indicators   Week ending Feb 10 bull bar reversed losses of the week ending Nov 25. Accompanying these upswings are increasing average volumes–7 million to 15 million and wide trade ranges which is bullish. Although we expect prices to cool off, ideal reversal zones will be at around last week’s lows of $8.5. However, such deep corrections are unlikely. Sellers may drive prices back to the $10 level before bull trend resume.

Aeternity Hardfork is Happening Today: A Look at the AE Token Migration Process and Costs

The much-awaited hardfork of Aeternity is scheduled on February 20, 2019. Following their mainnet launch on November 26, 2018, the project seems stronger than it has always been. What Is Aeternity? æternity powers Turing-complete smart contracts that allow the execution of credible transactions without third parties and intermediaries. The consensus is achieved via a novel hybrid algorithm. The “Cuckoo Cycle” Proof-of-Work (PoW) is more power-efficient and indirectly useful, as it encourages the development of better dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips. Proof-of-Stake (PoS) is used for governance, which is done via (delegated) voting, weighted by the number of tokens each account holds. æternity provides tools enabling participants to govern themselves effectively. It is essential to note that governance is very much a human problem that most likely cannot be “solved” by purely technical means. æternity's governance is implemented via delegated voting, weighted by the number of tokens each account holds and provides technical tools to permit governance, as well as frameworks for human interaction and effective discussion. Migration Process Phase 0 is the migration phase before Mainnet launch. The genesis block, the first block of the æternity blockchain, will include all tokens migrated by users during Phase 0. Each of the following three phases, with a timeframe of around 3 months, will end with a scheduled hard fork of the æternity blockchain. This means that after Mainnet launch there will be three scheduled hard forks. Each hard fork will migrate tokens and add or expand features of the æternity blockchain, that can only be implemented via hard fork. This also means that users will only receive their tokens on the æternity Mainnet with one of the Phases ending and a fork having been completed. All scheduled hard forks will include new features and improvements to the æternity protocol such as the governance system or the new virtual machine. After Phase 3, the migration process will change due to the smart contract managing the AE tokens expiring and Ethereum AE tokens becoming non-transferable. The provisional post-Mainnet fork schedule is: End of Phase 1: February 2019 End of Phase 2: May 2019 End of Phase 3: After 2 September 2019 (Ethereum AE tokens become non-transferable) There will be no cost for the AE token migration, other than the transaction fees charged by the Ethereum network for the token transfers. MetaMask or MyEtherWallet wallets are recommended and are integrated into the migration process. The transaction fee for withdrawing tokens from an exchange or a leased wallet is subject to the service’s transaction fee policy and can vary.
