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.

Tron CEO Justin Sun is in San Francisco

The Tron Foundation Founder & CEO Justin Sun is in San Francisco, United States, despite rumours of him being placed under a Chinese exit ban. Tron Chinese Whispers The blockchain entrepreneur published a live Periscope video Tuesday afternoon. He took the viewers on a tour of his surroundings, with San Francisco’s famous Bay Bridge appearing in and of the frame. That proved that Sun was not in China, as Chinese media service Caixin reported earlier. The whereabouts of Sun became a trending topic in the cryptocurrency community soon after local news sources claimed he was facing border control by the Chinese police. Reports emerged that a select committee on internet safety had charged Sun on the accounts of money laundering, unregulated gambling, illegal fundraising, and spreading pornographic content. It was also said that the committee suggested the police to arrest Sun should the necessity arises. Caixin confirms our thought as Justin Sun @justinsuntron is now under investigation and cannot leave China. Source (in Chinese): 翻译推文 — cnLedger (@cnLedger) July 23, 2019 The news appeared hours after the Tron Foundation tweeted about Sun postponing his lunch with Warren Buffett. The firm cited medical reasons, stating that Sun was suffering from kidney stones and, therefore, was unable to meet the Berkshire Hathaway CEO. Nevertheless, independent Chinese sources claimed that Sun was lying about his health to coverup the police investigation. The Tron CEO, on the other hand, appeared relaxed in his San Francisco hotel. He discussed the ongoing Tron developments with the community, never giving too much attention to the current “FUD,” a backronym for fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Sun will meet Buffett on July 25, as indicated by the Tron Foundation’s tweet published late yesterday. TRX Bulls Back on Track Hours before after Sun’s Periscope video from San Francisco went ‘LIVE,’ the Tron market started recovering from the day-long bloodbath. As of 18:55 UTC, the TRX/USD instrument had surged by more than 15 percent to 0.0252. Earlier today, the pair established a session low of 0.0218, with many analysts predicting a much smaller downside target as the FUD picked momentum. Sun’s video acted as a much-needed breather for an otherwise suffocating Tron market.

Data on showed the asset still trending 12.72 percent lower than where it was 24 hours ago. The TRX/USD pair could see gains as the lunch-date between Sun and Buffett grows near. The Fraud Charges Remain Even though Sun escaped the trolls today, his return back to mainland China would see him facing the police investigation, as discussed above. Bay bridge is beautiful. Me and our comms guy AKA bodyguard. #TRON — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) July 23, 2019 On the other hand, there are still theories about Sun faking the live footage from San Francisco, saying that it as an old recording. Bitcoinist will continue monitoring that angle as well. The post Tron CEO Justin Sun is in San Francisco appeared first on
