Tech, Week 23 ’18

June dates to mark on your calendar: pay attention to BitShares, Tron, Burst, ARK, Cardano.

Hard fork of BitShares (BTS) is scheduled on June 7, 2018

BitShares is the smart contract platform with built-in support for recurring payments and subscription payments. The development plans of the team include feature release (non-hard fork) with three-week sprints and core release (hard fork) which is going to happen twice annually, first Thursday of June and December.

Tron (TRX) has three more new listings for the week

These are Indodax, Coinex and Max cryptocurrency exchanges. The mainnet has definitely played an essential role and the upcoming token migration is probably what is attracting all the exchanges from different parts of the world, as speculated by the market. However, TRX is still continuing to fall and maybe the market’s pace is to be blamed.

BitShares (BTS) mainnet release

Mainnet release will be published after test is done, estimated date is around Tuesday, 12 June.

Burst (BURST) team plans a hard fork in June 2018

The hard fork or the so-called ‘Pre-Dymaxion Hard Fork’ is planned to happen around block 500 000. It will enable dynamic block size and transaction fees, PoC2 protocol and multi-out transactions (up to 64 recipients per transaction). This first hard fork will allow an on-chain maximum of 9600 transactions per block (40 tx per second).

Release date of the new ARK Core v2 codebase is announced

ARK Core v2 codebase for public testing on DevNet will become available on Thursday, the 14th of June 2018. ARK Core v2 code will be released on a public GitHub repository. Current ARK Node codebase will be replaced with the new ARK Core v2 repository. The first iteration of the new ARK Core will be 100% backwards compatible, so there will be still an opportunity to run an old ARK Node on DevNet.

Cardano (ADA) roadmap update is scheduled for 7 June, 2018

The Cardano roadmap shows developments like multi signature transactions, paper wallets and side chains. Since the very launch of the Cardano roadmap, the developers haven’t stopped generating new tasks based on the passed stages. The current price of ADA is around $0.2112.

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 — 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.
