Ethereum’s Serenity PoS Roadmap Out

A limited roadmap for the 2.0 Serenity upgrade that will switch Ethereum to Proof of Stake (PoS) from a Proof of Work (PoW) consensus protocol has been unveiled. The Ethereum ecosystem now has a timeframe to look out for starting later this year. The planned upgrade dubbed the final iteration in Ethereum’s evolution, or Ethereum 2.0, will kick off with the Istanbul hard fork slated for October (it will include updates on ProgPoW). It should be recalled that the network had the Constantinople fork in February also as a grand part of the Serenity upgrade which is expected to happen in multiple stages. There have been indications of the expected phases in the past but this is the first time an estimated timeline is identified with the four major stages. Phase 0 will be for the PoS blockchain, Beacon Chain, in 2019 onwards while phase 1 will see Shard Chains come up in 2020 to improve scalability. By 2020 or 2021, phase 2 is expected to kick in the introduction of eWASM which will be an upgrade of the Ethereum virtual machine. Phase 3 will be for continued improvement starting from 2022 and beyond. According to Ethereum’s lead developer, Vitalik Buterin, Serenity is a combination of pure Casper’s PoS with sharding, eWASM and other ideas derived from their research since 2014. It is the fourth stage after Frontier, Homestead and Metropolis. It will bring about a new blockchain going by its data structure but with a link to the existing PoW chain. It will be a new but connected system that will in the long term host all applications on the existing Ethereum blockchain once it is certified stable enough. “Serenity is also ‘the world computer’ as it is really meant to be,” Buterin notes in his 2018 Devcon speech . He explains further that the Beacon Chain is to run like a dummy chain (with no applications) parallel to the existing Ethereum 1.0 chain for validators to execute the running of the PoS algorithms – halfway between the testnet and the mainnet. Initially, users may only be able to send ether from the existing chain to the Beacon Chain (but not the other way round) as a validator by locking 32 ether in a smart contract. The sharding part for data turns on in phase 1 without the capabilities to build smart contract applications. State transitions including the virtual machine and account contracts would be enabled in phase 2 to allow ether being moved between shards. Phase 3 is for the improvement of all the basic features that Serenity will introduce. They include a projected 1000x scalability and faster transaction confirmation time (about eight to 16 seconds). Layer 2 solutions are to come later to preserve privacy of coin transfers. Also expected in the post-Serenity stage is the implementation of ‘semi-private chains’ on the Ethereum platform. This enables the building of applications on the public chain but the data kept private between a few users in an encrypted form.

Ethereum Q&A: "Blockchain all the things"

Can blockchains help IoT security issues? Should we use ERC-20 token to trade solar energy? Can blockchains help with securities and prediction markets? Transport and logistics projects? Supply chain? Vehicular communications? Digital identities? Voting and election processes? Since there is such a proliferation of tokens, when will they reach the implementation stage? Ideas are cheap. Without ethics, tech can be dangerous. These questions were from the sixth session of MOOC 11 and the Seoul Bitcoin Meetup, which took place on March 7th and April 5th 2019, respectively.

RealT to Tokenize Detroit Real Estate

Revamped Detroit Detroit has long been a city mired in a state of dismay. It would appear that fortunes have a cyclical nature, however. A city that was once a bustling metropolis went bankrupt, and now finds itself presenting savvy investors with lucrative opportunities. Primarily of which is the real estate market, as noted by RealT. RealT has recently announced their intent to bring blockchain to Detroit, by tokenization of property ownership. While opportunities are initially limited to residential properties owned by RealT, they intend to eventually allow for individuals to tokenize their own properties through provided platforms. Naturally, as these opportunities represent the distribution of a form of security, investments are limited to qualified individuals. This entire process is made possible through the use of RealTokens, which function as digital securities. These digital securities are issued upon the Ethereum blockchain, and provide their holders with fractionalized ownership in the properties which they represent. The perk in approaching the market, as seen be RealT, is that it opens up real estate investing to a much broader market. Instead of the being limited to the very wealthy, fractionalized ownership opens the door to a broader scope of investors – All the while providing participants with actual ownership (something not possible through REITs). Tokenization of Detroit based real-estate through the issuance of RealTokens has already begun. This inaugural property is located at 9943 Marlowe, Detroit MI. Commentary Upon announcing the plan to tokenize Detroit based real estate, RealT CEO, Remy Jacobson, took the opportunity to express his thought. Remy Jacobson, stated, “The real-estate market desperately needs a shake-up, with current limitations including laborious documentation processes, siloed markets, and high costs all acting as barriers to entry to investment, particularly for those living in other countries.” He continued, “We believe tokenization enables a worldwide marketplace for real estate investment, and it is the next step in the evolution of the industry.” RealT RealT is a young company looking to open new investment opportunities through the merging of blockchain and real estate. These blockchain technologies include the use of Ethereum, stablecoin ‘Dai’, and RealTokens. Allowing RealT to offer individual ‘series’ of tokens representing fractionalized ownership of residential properties in burgeoning markets. Company operations are overseen by CEO, Remy Jacobson. In Other News The tokenization of real estate has proven to be one of the most popular implementations of digital securities, to date. While not every instance has worked out, there are a variety of other mergers between real estate and blockchain that have. Here is a look at a few of those scenarios.

Yes, Ethereum (ETH) Is Losing The Dapp Race, Dethroning Bogging Down Prices?

Ethereum prices up 3.8 percent but underperforming against EOS and Cardano The number of dApps launching off Ethereum declining Vitalik admits that Ethereum’s novelty is ending and competitor platform offering speed and scalability is clipping part of their market share. According to DApp radar, only 28 percent of dApps are off the Ethereum platform. Meanwhile, Ethereum (ETH) bulls are up but yet to close above $150, our minor buy trigger line. Ethereum Price Analysis Fundamentals In a decentralized and open source, competition is bound to happen. Sometimes, it can be taken a notch higher, and the result is a contentious hard fork as interests clash. Ethereum hard forked once but what was on stake is millions of dollars after the infamous DAO hack. Since then, there has been an evolution and Metropolis was well handled though there were delays thanks to bugs and the miner community disagreeing on EIP 1234 reward slashing. While novel and the king of smart contracts, Ethereum is struggling with low throughput and can’t scale to compete against new, scalability and speed oriented competitors like Tron and EOS for example. To compensate for speed and scalability, Ethereum replaces that with a vibrant developer community. Besides, it is decentralized. Nonetheless, that is not preventing projects from migrating. Admitting to their waning influence, Vitalik is unfazed although the number of dApps running on their network is dropping. According to statistics from DApp Radar, only 28 percent of all dApps are based on Ethereum’s smart contract with most running off EOS which take the mantle, ranking first in the latest CCID list with 48 percent of all dApps launching in the scalable platform. #TRON occupies 6 seats in world's Top 10 Dapps and #ETHEREUM gets 0. In the future it will be 10 seats out of 10! #TRX $TRX #BTT $BTT pic.twitter.com/8fFRgveRUq — Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) January 26, 2019 Candlestick Arrangement At spot rates, Ethereum (ETH) second with a market cap of $14,893 million and up 3.8 percent in the last day. Even so, performance is not as stellar and is lagging competitors as EOS—up 14.9 percent and Cardano (ADA) up 14.6 percent within the same time-frame. All the same, we expect prices to print higher, and in line with our last ETH/USD trade plan, the only time we shall recommend ramp-up is when there is a satisfactory break and close above $150. Before then, we acknowledge the liquidation effect of Feb 24 now that prices are reversing off the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level based on the bear bar high low. As a result, caution should prevail, but if prices surge above $170 nullifying the breakout effect of Q4 2018, then risk-averse traders can load up with the first target at $200. Technical Indicators Prices are higher, but transaction averages are lower, printing 104k by yesterday’s close. Ideally, any rally that will lift prices above $170 must be with above average volumes exceeding 302k of Mar 5 and even 880k of Feb 24 as per our trade emphasis.

XRP Spikes 10% on Ripple MoneyGram Partnership News

Big partnership announcements have been thin on the ground for many of the major crypto companies recently. That changed for Ripple a few hours ago when the firm announced a strategic partnership with one of the world’s largest money transfer companies, MoneyGram. XRP Climbs 15% in a Week Compared to bitcoin and litecoin, XRP has been asleep for the past two months. Even Ethereum has outperformed it in terms of percentage gains. That all changed a few hours ago when XRP awoke from its range bound channel at $0.42 and surged almost 10% to hit an intraday high just over $0.46. A minor pullback followed in the hours after the announcement but XRP is still one of the day’s top performers. XRP price 1 hour candles – Tradingview.com XRP 00 has climbed almost 15% over the past week as it was trading just under $0.40 this time last Tuesday. Daily volume has just topped $2 billion as XRP market capitalization approaches $20 billion. The gap to ETH in second place is still $10 billion in terms of market cap, however. It has been one of the best weeks for XRP in terms of gains as the Ripple token has only made 27% since the beginning of the year. Big Partnership Driving FOMO The San Francisco based firm announced the partnership on its company blog late last night. It stated that the initial partnership will last two years during which Ripple will become the key partner for MoneyGram’s cross border payments and foreign exchange settlements. A substantial capital commitment of $50 million has also been pledged by the blockchain company enabling MoneyGram to draw it over a two year period in exchange for equity. Ripple’s xRapid system will be deployed for the partnership. It facilitates on-demand liquidity enabling instant transactions by reducing reliance on pre-funding. The XRP token will be used as the ‘real-time bridge’ between different currencies. Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, stated; This strategic partnership will enable MoneyGram to greatly improve its operations and enable millions of people around the world to benefit from its improved efficiency. This is a huge milestone in helping to transform cross-border payments and I look forward to a long-term, very strategic partnership between our companies. MoneyGram has a $600 billion global remittance market supporting multiple currencies in more than 200 countries. Traditional forex markets requiring advance purchases are currently used for international transfers. The partnership and leverage of Ripple’s native token are expected to reduce costs and increase transfer speeds for the firm. Alex Holmes, MoneyGram Chairman and CEO, added; Through Ripple’s xRapid product, we will have the ability to instantly settle funds from US dollars to destination currencies on a 24/7 basis, which has the potential to revolutionize our operations and dramatically streamline our global liquidity management.

XRP Gains 5% as Ripple Forms Strategic Partnership with MoneyGram; Last Resorts for Both Firms?

Ripple bought a share issue from MoneyGram worth $30 million at $4.10 per share to acquire 8-10% of the company. MoneyGram would also have an option of infusing another $20 million over the next two years. A strategic partnership will now ensue where Ripple will become the critical service provider for cross-border payment and foreign exchange settlement using digital assets. The digital asset they will be leveraging is Ripple, using Ripple’s xRapid Product. This partnership is a massive step towards the vision with which Ripple began, and investors put money is XRP. Also Read: Ripple Fathers’ Day Gift Propels It Past $0.4400 as Bulls Return Until now, MoneyGram has had to use banking services to provide settlements for payments they initiate. Due to the difference in time of settling payments, MoneyGram has to take loans to increase the required liquidity. However, by deploying xRapid, they will now be able to leverage XRP’s liquidity to provide cheaper and faster settlements. MoneyGram Chairman and CEO, Alex Holmes noted, “Through Ripple’s xRapid product, we will have the ability to instantly settle funds from US dollars to destination currencies on a 24/7 basis, which has the potential to revolutionize our operations and dramatically streamline our global liquidity management.” MoneyGram reported a net loss of $24 million in 2018 compared to a net loss of $29.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2017. The money transmitting service provider has been working towards developing, and 2019 will be part of the roadmap. Hence, the success of this strategic partnership is crucial for MoneyGram.

Currently, MoneyGram works independently by leveraging money from banks. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse told the media,  “This will eliminate the need to deploy foreign bank accounts. That’s why MoneyGram has negative working capital. It will help customers and also smooth out their treasury operations,” XRP/USD 4-Hour Chart on Bitstamp (TradingView) Moreover, while XRP recorded gains around 5%, it rose from $0.43 to a reach high at $0.46. Notably, a partnership like this back in 2016 or 2017 would have likely propelled the price by 30%. This can be attributed to an apparent decrease in the use case for MoneyGram itself. Digital payment is quickly becoming more accessible than ever with major firms working on implementing or integrating digital currencies on their respective platforms. Facebook is the most prominent example of it. Do you think MoneyGram and Ripple will be able to increase their volume and user base in the current environment?

Ripple Partners MoneyGram to Enhance Cross-border Payments with XRP

Ripple has secured another major partnership with international money transfer company MoneyGram. This will allow the company to use Ripple’s native token XRP to provide liquidity for international payments to MoneyGram customers. This is in a bid to enhance the speed and efficiency of the payment system that MoneyGram operates. In an interview with Fortune on the partnership, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said: “This will eliminate the need to deploy foreign bank accounts. That’s why MoneyGram has negative working capital. It will help customers and also smooth out their treasury operations.” The partnership also gives Ripple an 8% to 10% stake in MoneyGram by paying $4.10 per share. This, however, does not give Ripple a voice in the dealings of MoneyGram for now as part of the agreement. MoneyGram, on the other hand, will have the opportunity of reviving its financial standing from Ripple’s investment which it direly needs after its share price crashed significantly.  It will also increase the efficiency of the payment platform, the management said. “We are very pleased with the terms of the Ripple investment which supports the Company with permanent capital and additional liquidity,” Larry Angelilli, chief financial officer of MoneyGram, said in a statement. “This partnership also provides MoneyGram with the opportunity to improve operating efficiencies and increase earnings and free cash flow,” Larry Angelilli, the chief financial officer of MoneyGram said. Ripple is the leader in remittance services as far as the blockchain industry is concerned. Its xRapid is second to none in terms of transaction efficiency and speed. With the new partnership, XRP which will be used for liquidity will be exposed to MoneyGram’s customers in over 200 countries globally. MoneyGram is the second largest provider of money transfer services in the world and while partnering with Ripple will ensure better service delivery to its customers, it is also a huge breakthrough for Ripple which has been looking to expand its reach further into the world. With hundreds of clients using Ripple’s payment platform, the company has grown significantly thus improving the international remittance settlement market by improving customer experience in conventional financial institutions.

Ripple Announces Game-Changing Partnership With MoneyGram

By CCN Markets: Ripple announced a partnership with money transfer giant MoneyGram today. Two Year Exclusive Agreement, Ripple and MoneyGram According to Ripple Labs, a two-year partnership has been struck with MoneyGram which makes Ripple its exclusive digital assets partner.

Whatever the case, the partnership doesn’t, for example, mean that you’ll be able to buy and sell XRP at any MoneyGram location.
