Ethereum Co-Creator Says Focus Should be on Adoption, Not Price

December 2017 was an exciting time for cryptocurrencies. Values were soaring to the stratosphere; mainstream coverage had increased substantially; overall interest had never been higher. But after reaching an all-time peak in January 2018, the market has since corrected itself. According to crypto news site CCN, Ethereum has lost 92 percent of its value since its January 13th zenith – a drop almost as extreme as its climb.

While some investors have understandably cooled on crypto in the wake of such wild price swings, key figures have cautioned that a price-centric focus paints an incomplete picture of Ethereum’s health. In fact, Joseph Lubin, Ethereum co-creator and founder of decentralized-software studio ConsenSys, believes that in many ways, things have never been better.

Lubin views blockchain as “a movement,” not a market – and a growing one at that. “Market cap doesn’t reflect activity…10 billion daily API requests served by Infura. 1 million Truffle downloads. 1 million MetaMask downloads. 12,000 live Ethereum nodes. 48 million unique Ethereum addresses. 3 times LinkedIn blockchain job openings,” he said.

By those metrics, he’s right. 2018 has seen exponential growth throughout Ethereum’s infrastructure. Truffle, the “most popular development framework for Ethereum” according to its website, has been downloaded over 1 million times. Infura, an API and set of developer tools providing “secure, reliable, and scalable access to Ethereum and IPFS,” exceeded 10 billion requests. And MetaMask, a tool that allows users “to run Ethereum dApps right in your browser without running a full Ethereum node,” launched their first mobile client this year.

Other reports of Ethereum’s demise were found to be exaggerated. HASH CIB, a crypto- and digital-asset focused investment firm, issued a recent report indicating that ICOs had not sold off as large an amount of ether holdings as initially thought. Marat Garafutdinov, analyst and author of the report, said data indicated that “…ICO projects reacted to the market conditions, rather than dictated them.” “The treasuries currently still hold a minimum of 3.4% of the total ethereum supply,” elaborated Garafutdinov. “Our findings have been confirmed by separate researchers. And contradicted by some – most probably, due to reporters equaling all of the ETH moved to ETH directly sold.”

Ethereum’s expanding user base and improving infrastructure stands in stark contrast to its price performance. To Lubin, that means the seeds have been planted for continued long-term growth. Market bubbles are nothing new in crypto. Independent of value fluctuations, the robust, growing ecosystem around Ethereum’s foundational pieces has never been stronger.

If Hedge Funds are Using AI to Invest, Why Shouldn’t You?

Some of the world’s biggest financial institutions have devoted multi-million dollar budgets to developing algorithms that can find patterns in the market, identify trends, and perform automated trading designed to take advantage of even the smallest price movements. The AI revolution is so big that as it stands today, the world’s five biggest hedge funds all use systems-based approaches to trade financial markets.Indeed, quantitative trading hedge funds now manage $918 billion (according to HFR), which amounts to 30% of the $3 trillion hedge fund industry – a percentage continues to grow with each year that passes.

What's the Difference Between Tokens and Altcoins?

Between their inherently technical nature, multiple varieties and sub-varieties, and endless terminology, cryptocurrency (defined here as digital or virtual currencies that are encrypted using cryptography, powered by the immutable digital ledger known as the blockchain) represents a whole, complex world.All altcoins possess their own blockchain, independent from their source code, that records all transactions of their native coins. Many altcoins are variants, or forks, of Bitcoin that leverage that cryptocurrency’s open-source protocol as the basis.

Why it Pays to Invest in Dividend Stocks Over the Long Term

Why it Pays to Invest in Dividend Stocks Over the Long Term

Where smaller, more volatile companies can placate shareholders with higher returns, larger companies often use dividend payouts to entice new investors and hold their existing ones. These low-risk options may not work for every investment approach, but dividend-producing stocks can offer great benefits under the right circumstances – especially for portfolios built for the long-term.Beyond the ability to rely on these semi-regular payouts as an income stream – a strategy favored by retirees – dividends are an excellent vehicle for compounding earnings through reinvestment.
