ETH atinge alta em meio a nova alta de preços

Ethereum recuperou a zona de $ 2.000.

Ethereum, o segundo maior ativo da crypto em valor de mercado, quebrou sua alta anterior de preço de quase US $ 2.041 , fixada em 19 de fevereiro de 2021

Ethereum ( ETH ) atingiu um preço recorde de aproximadamente US $ 2.081 hoje, de acordo com dados da TradingView. A ETH é negociada perto de $ 2.067 no momento da publicação.

Desde sua alta de fevereiro, a ETH corrigiu duas vezes em seu gráfico diário, postando uma mínima mais alta na segunda correção. Nos dias após seu pico de $ 2.041, o ativo caiu para cerca de $ 1.293. A ETH se recuperou para cerca de US $ 1.943 em 13 de março, antes de cair para perto de US $ 1.546 nos dias subsequentes.

Desde a queda de cerca de US $ 1.546, a ETH registrou quatro velas verdes diárias consecutivas. Hoje será o quinto, se fechar verde

A CoinMarketCap lista a ETH como o segundo maior ativo em valor de mercado atualmente. Com uma capitalização de mercado perto de US $ 239 bilhões no momento da publicação, a ETH está confortavelmente em segundo lugar acima da Binance Coin ( BNB ), mas muito longe da avaliação total do Bitcoin ( BTC ) de US $ 1,1 trilhão.

Ethereum tem visto um grande número de manchetes nos últimos meses, em linha com sua transição para Ethereum 2.0 , ou Eth2, bem como seu papel nas finanças descentralizadas, ou DeFi . A Eth2 pretende escalar a rede Ethereum e fazer a transição completa de seu blockchain para um algoritmo de prova de aposta nos próximos meses .

A trajetória de alta dos preços da ETH também veio em linha com um mercado altista geral para a criptografia, em que o BTC foi negociado acima de US $ 60.000 .

Bridgewaterin Ray Dalio varoittaa hallitus voi rajoittaa Bitcoin Investoinnit, Asettaa „Shocking“ Verot

Maailman suurimman hedge-rahastoyhtiön Bridgewater Associatesin perustaja ja sijoitusjohtaja on varoittanut, että hallitus voisi „kieltää pääomanliikkeet“ bitcoinin kaltaisiin varoihin. Hän lisäsi, että sääntelyviranomaiset voivat myös määrätä veromuutoksia, jotka „voivat olla odotettua järkyttävämpiä“.

Ray Dalio varoittaa hallituksen kielloista ja veroista

Ray Dalio, Bridgewater Associatesin perustaja ja sijoitusjohtaja, kirjoitti viime viikolla Linkediniin viestin otsikolla: „Miksi ihmeessä omistaisit joukkovelkakirjoja, kun…“.

Hän huomautti, että joukkovelkakirjamarkkinat tarjoavat tällä hetkellä „naurettavan alhaisia tuottoja“, jotka „eivät täytä näiden varojen haltijoiden rahoitustarpeita“. Johtaja kirjoitti: „USA:n velkasitoumuksia on nyt yli 75 biljoonaa dollaria eri maturiteetteja“, ja lisäsi, että niiden haltijat haluavat jossain vaiheessa myydä ne saadakseen käteistä, jolla voi ostaa tavaroita ja palveluita.

Bridgewaterin sijoitusjohtaja kuitenkin arvioi, että „nykyisillä arvostuksilla näissä rahoitusvaroissa on aivan liian paljon rahaa, jotta olisi realistista odottaa, että merkittävä osa velkakirjarahoista voitaisiin muuttaa käteiseksi ja vaihtaa tavaroihin ja palveluihin.“ Hän tarkensi:

„Se on hoidettava … painamalla paljon rahaa ja devalvoimalla sitä sekä järjestelemällä uudelleen paljon velkaa ja valtiontaloutta, mihin yleensä sisältyy suuria veronkorotuksia.“

Dalio selitti: „Sekä sen perusteella, miten asiat ovat toimineet historiallisesti että sen perusteella, mitä nyt tapahtuu, olen varma, että veromuutoksilla on myös tärkeä rooli pääomavirtojen ohjaamisessa eri sijoitusomaisuuksiin ja eri paikkoihin, ja nämä liikkeet vaikuttavat markkinoiden liikkeisiin.“

Dalio on tutkinut bitcoinia viime kuukausien aikana

Miljardöörin rahastonhoitaja korosti, että „jos historia ja logiikka ovat ohjenuorana, poliittiset päättäjät, joilla on pulaa rahasta, nostavat veroja eivätkä pidä näistä pääomaliikkeistä pois velkavaroista ja muihin varallisuuden varastoiviin varoihin ja muihin veroalueisiin“, hän varoitti:

He voivat hyvinkin asettaa kieltoja pääomanliikkeille muihin varoihin (esim. kultaan, bitcoiniin jne.) ja muihin paikkoihin. Nämä veromuutokset voivat olla odotettua järkyttävämpiä.

Bridgewater Associatesin perustaja käytti esimerkkinä Elizabeth Warrenin ehdottamaa varallisuusveroa todeten, että se „on ennennäkemättömän suuri“. Viitaten tutkimukseensa „varallisuusveroista muissa maissa muina aikoina“ hän odottaa, että tämä ehdotus „todennäköisesti johtaa suurempiin pääomavirtoihin ja muihin toimiin näiden verojen kiertämiseksi“.

Näin ollen „Yhdysvallat saattaisi tulla koetuksi paikkana, joka ei ole otollinen kapitalismille ja kapitalisteille“, Dalio arvioi ja korosti, että „mahdollisuudet siihen, että huomattava varallisuusverolaki hyväksytään lähivuosina, ovat merkittävät“. Lopuksi Bridgewaterin johtaja varoitti:

Veromuutokset ja pääomavalvonnan mahdollisuus on syytä ottaa huomioon.

Viime vuoden marraskuussa hän myönsi, että saattaa olla väärässä bitcoinin suhteen, mutta oli kuitenkin huolissaan siitä, että hallitukset kieltävät kryptovaluutan. Joulukuussa hän sanoi, että bitcoin voisi „toimia monipuolistajana kullan ja muiden vastaavien varallisuuden säilytysvarojen rinnalla“. Sitten tämän vuoden tammikuussa hän sanoi, että „bitcoin on helvetinmoinen keksintö“, ja paljasti, että hänen yrityksensä tutkii kryptovaluuttaa tarkasti.

Crypto race of the great powers: China sprints ahead, USA panting behind

The global race for crypto technologies will continue in 2021. While China is picking up the pace these days and is relying on a partnership with the payment processor SWIFT, the US legislators are panting afterwards. It is true that there are numerous, albeit tentative, signs of opening up in the land of unlimited possibilities. However, pioneering initiatives in the style of China are still a long way off. With Beijing’s most recent advances, the People’s Republic’s lead seems to be further cemented.

Chinese Volksbank and SWIFT join forces

At first glance, the international payment service provider SWIFT and the Chinese Volksbank PBoC initially appear to be extremely unsuitable partners: SWIFT is the biggest competitor of Chinese financial providers, and Beijing, on the other hand, actually wants to break away from the dependency of the western financial world. However, Chinese sources are now reportingof a common, meanwhile still vague cooperation. At the moment, one can only speculate about the scope and purpose of this joint venture. It is clear, however, that the Chinese government is becoming more and more pragmatic in restructuring its financial infrastructure. There is little to suggest that Beijing is cutting itself into its own flesh with the advance. Accordingly, there is much to suggest that the initiative serves the e-yuan, China’s own central bank currency.

Miami Mayor Wants to Pay Officials in Bitcoin

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Pacific, further advances in crypto adaptation can be found, albeit initially only highlight. The mayor of the metropolis of Miami, for example, wants to take an example from the state of Wyoming and enable city officials to get their pay in Profit Revolution. Fees and taxes should also be able to be paid in the form of crypto currencies in the future. In addition, Francis Suarez plans to invest part of the city treasury in the crypto sector. The mayor revealed these ambitious plans to the US magazine Forbes. For him, it is clear that Bitcoin is the „greatest story in the next few years“.

Republican Senator Wants to Establish Financial Innovation Committee

US Senator Cynthia Lummis wants to change the fact that things are still looking rather meager in the rest of the USA with a view to the crypto adaptation. In order to network with her colleagues, the representative of the blockchain pioneer Wyoming now wants to set up a ‚Financial Innovation Caucus‘ – a kind of parliamentary committee. This should ensure exchange and convey the potential of crypto technology. She announced corresponding plans in a podcast last week . The main aim is to counter the negative image that cryptocurrencies continue to hold in the US.

Library of Congress confirms global tax authorities have some catching up to do

While cryptocurrencies are still gaining a foothold, public administrations and legislators are lagging behind, even outside the US. This is shown by the latest report from the Library of Congress, the research library of the US Parliament. This attests to the need to catch up in taxation. Not only are there clear differences between the regulatory approaches of the various tax authorities. In addition, at the moment only 16 countries worldwide have passed guidelines for mining revenues, and only five countries for revenues from crypto staking.

Ethereum surpasses Bitcoin in annual network fees

Ethereum outperformed Bitcoin for the 1st time in terms of total fees generated over the year.

Ethereum generated nearly $ 600 million in fees during the year 2020, which is 83% more than Bitcoin.

This is the highest annual fee total ever seen on a blockchain platform.

While Bitcoin has already passed its old record high of 2017 handily, Ethereum is still trying to climb back to its peak of $ 1,448. That said, it now looks like Ethereum is bouncing back, crushing Bitcoin in terms of transaction fees generated.

Determining the underlying value of a blockchain-based network can be complicated, especially when it doesn’t have traditional assets to help guide its valuation. That said, the transaction fees generated can be a solid indicator of network activity.

Classify the Ethereum network through its fees

For the first time in its history, Ethereum generated a total of fees greater than that of Bitcoin , by a significantly greater margin. According to Glassnode, an on-chain market analysis firm, Ethereum users spent 83% more on total network fees than on Bitcoin.

According to a tweet from Glassnode CTO Rafael Schultze-Kraft: “In 2020, Ethereum overtook Bitcoin in terms of network fees. Users spent nearly $ 600 million in fees on the Ethereum network last year, 83% more than on Bitcoin ”.

In 2020, Ethereum even managed to outperform Bitcoin network fees during its meteoric rise to its previous record in 2017.

A very different landscape

In 2019, Ethereum generated less than $ 50 million in transaction fees. Even in 2018, the year it hit its all-time high, Ethereum generated just over $ 150 million in fees.

How then to explain this drastic increase in the total value of transaction fees on the Ethereum network?

The arrival of decentralized finance ( DeFi ) and decentralized applications ( dApps ) is proving to be one of the main factors contributing to this increase.

At the end of 2019, well under $ 1 billion in total value was locked in DeFi apps, which mostly run on the Ethereum network. These applications allow financial transactions such as loans, insurance and trading operations to be carried out without having to resort to a third party. This allows for much more competitive rates and returns more value to the user.

At the end of 2020, the total value locked in in DeFi stood at over $ 16 billion, a growth of over 2,500%. This massive increase in the use of DeFi applications, due to platforms like UniSwap and MakerDao , has led to a sharp increase in fees on the Ethereum network.

This has advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, this rise indicates a sharp increase in the use of the platform, but it also underlines the extremely high fees that users have to pay to complete transactions.

Bitcoin-præmier er ekstremt høje, men alligevel er folk villige til at betale

Forestil dig, at du støder på et samlerobjekt, du ønsker. Du har lavet matematikken, og du ved, at det kun er et bestemt beløb værd, men alligevel vil sælgeren have en dobbelt eller tredobbelt pris. Vil du tage det? Vil du have denne samlerobjekt nok? Når det kommer til bitcoin, er folk angiveligt så desperate efter at få fat i valutaen, at de pludselig er villige til at betale næsten alt for at føje den til deres porteføljer.

Bitcoin-præmier er gennem taget
Bitcoin, verdens største kryptokurrency efter markedsværdi, har handlet for mere end $ 23.000 i de sidste par dage. Valutaen nåede et nyt rekordhøjt niveau tidligt i sidste uge og har været på en stabil rulle i nogen tid. Det er blevet skubbet som et værdibutik og som et hækningsværktøj i de seneste dage, hvor mange analytikere hævder, at det potentielt kan holde ens penge i tider med økonomisk strid.

Dette ser virkelig ud til at komme ind i folks underbevidste sind, da de fleste bitcoinhandlere pludselig er villige til at betale latterligt høje priser for valutaen. Virksomheder som Grayscale Bitcoin Trust opkræver for eksempel præmier så høje som 34 procent på nye bitcoin-enheder, og alligevel har dette ikke forhindret virksomheden i at skabe forretning.

Faktum er, at der er utrolig meget FOMO – frygt for at gå glip af – spredt over hele det økonomiske rum. Flere mennesker ser nu alt, hvad der er kryptorelateret, som en vare eller et produkt, de simpelthen ikke kan undvære. Desuden giver køb gennem mæglerfirmaer som Grayscale folk en chance for at investere i bitcoin uden at blive udsat for store risici. Således er de pludselig villige til at betale disse latterligt høje gebyrer og priser for at få bitcoin.

James Seyffart – en Bloomberg Intelligence ETF-analytiker – hævder i et nylig interview:

Svaret er ikke så simpelt som ‚giver det mening at betale for det?‘ I et vakuum. Det giver absolut ingen mening at betale denne præmie, men jeg synes, at et niveau af præmie er berettiget, og hvis du vil have adgang til bitcoin, er der virkelig ikke bedre muligheder.

Alt i alt er bitcoin steget med mere end 200 procent siden begyndelsen af ​​året, mens virksomheder som Grayscale har set de aktiver, de administrerer, vokse med cirka 40 procent.

Nate Geraci – præsident for ETF Store – mener, at tingene stadig er for sjusket, når det kommer til BTC-handel. Folks villighed til at betale denne form for præmier antyder en enorm burst i bitcoin- og kryptoefterspørgsel, og han mener, at regeringsorganer som SEC, der løbende nægter bitcoin-børshandlede fondsapplikationer (ETF) laver en kæmpe fejl.

Bitcoin-prijsvoorspelling: BTC / USD komt dichterbij om weerstandszones van $ 19,5k- $ 20k vrij te maken, waarschijnlijk grotere opwaartse trend

BTC / USD heeft cruciale weerstandsniveaus doorbroken toen de munt een hoogtepunt bereikte van $ 19.400. De bulls braken de $ 18.600 en $ 18.800. Deze huidige zet is om de volgende weerstandszones vrij te maken van $ 19.400 naar $ 19.600.

Het huidige opwaartse momentum werd mogelijk gemaakt doordat de $ 18.500 en $ 18.600 ondersteuningsniveaus goed werden verdedigd door de bulls

De steunniveaus vormden de basis voor het huidige opwaartse momentum. Kopers hebben opnieuw de prijs verhoogd om de weerstandszone van $ 19.500 tot $ 20.000 te bereiken. Aan de positieve kant, als de stieren deze volgende weerstand kunnen overwinnen, is een grotere opwaartse trend in zicht. Met andere woorden, Bitcoin Investor zal getuige zijn van een nieuwe ronde van rally. Omgekeerd, als de bulls er niet in slagen het huidige bullish momentum vast te houden, zullen verkopers proberen de prijs naar beneden te drukken en het kritieke ondersteuningsniveau van $ 18.500 te doorbreken. Zo’n beweging zal de prijs verder naar het prijsniveau van $ 16.000 duwen.

Jim Cramer koopt Bitcoin terwijl hij netjes van de top afstapt in $ 17.000

De uitgesproken gastheer van Mad Money van CNBC beweert dat hij vrijdag een goed getimede Bitcoin-investering heeft gedaan. Tijdens een interview met „The Street“ zegt Jim Cramer dat hij vrijdagochtend Bitcoin heeft gekocht toen de prijs onder de $ 18.000 was gedaald. De Mad Money-host voegde eraan toe dat hij de crypto-activa behandelde zoals elke andere investeringsportefeuille.

Hij verklaarde verder op de manier: „Ik zal kopen – zoals ik gewoonlijk doe – als er iets naar beneden komt“, zei Cramer. ‚Ik word groter en groter en groter. Ik denk gewoon dat je wilt diversifiëren naar allerlei soorten activaklassen. Ik heb goud. Ik ga diversifiëren naar Bitcoin – geen grote positie voor mij – maar het is zeker belangrijk om gediversifieerd te zijn, en Bitcoin is een aanwinst en ik wil een balans van activa hebben. „

The Bitcoin explosion in 2020 is not like the 2017 bubble

Early adopters who saw Bitcoin’s potential in the last decade have been waiting this year for their entire life as crypto-investors.

The recent volatile corrections in Bitcoin’s volatile prices (BTC) could evoke images of the 2017 crash in their minds, or even the crash caused by COVID-19 in March of this year. But the fact that Bitcoin has reached $20,000 for the first time in history is no reason to raise the alarm.

Despite the fact that the price of the world’s most valuable crypt currency has gone up by more than 225% this year, the current rally we’re experiencing doesn’t look like the Bitcoin bubble we saw in 2017. Far from it. There are four key reasons for this:

Institutional investment in space is at an all-time high.
There is little or no media attention catapulting the price tag this time around.
Central banks and governments are beginning to see what is written on the wall.
Retail investors in emerging markets are investing in what they hope will be a revolution.

Bitcoin is no longer just for young tech-savvy millennials. Governments, central banks and large corporations can no longer ignore its value. That’s exactly why some historic investments by Bitcoin’s major sponsors made headlines in 2020.

These four reasons aren’t just relevant now; they’ll all continue to play a role in Bitcoin’s future growth. Consider this breaking news. Bitcoin no longer lives in a bubble, and soon, the traditional financial world is the only thing that’s going to explode.

Institutional investment in Bitcoin shoots up in 2020

A publicly traded business consulting company called MicroStrategy now owns 38,250 Bitcoin, currently worth just under $640 million. The BTCs were originally purchased for about $250 million earlier this year. Thanks to the huge scale of the purchase and its profitability so far, company CEO Michael Saylor has become a true Bitcoin evangelist. Aside from large investment funds, no company owns more Bitcoin than MicroStrategy.

Saylor and his company join Square CEO Jack Dorsey in his enthusiasm for Bitcoin. Dorsey bought about $50 million of the cryptomoney for his company. What’s more important than that $50 million investment, however, is that estimates suggest that both Square and its payment competitor PayPal are swallowing more than 70% of newly mined Bitcoin entering circulation. Square allows customers to use cryptomoneds as payment; PayPal allows customers and sellers to buy Bitcoin directly from their PayPal accounts. Both portals are currently creating a windfall for Bitcoin market capitalization.

Retail investors are no longer just following a mainstream media trend

In 2017, it would have been hard for you not to hear about Bitcoin. Whether a friend or family member told you about it at Christmas, or you heard about it on the news or in TV ads, the fact is that almost all the major media outlets were covering the price boom at that time.

If you look ahead to today, you can take a look at Google Trends to see that searches for the word Bitcoin have been trending high lately, but aside from specific television programming about the investment world, you don’t hear as much about Bitcoin in the mainstream media, with some exceptions of course.

This means we’ve reached a new milestone in adoption. More and more people know about crypto currencies than ever before, and they’re now following the asset class more closely.

Japanese financial giant SBI opens up to Bitcoin loans (BTC)

Japan lends bitcoins – SBI Holdings is a major Japanese financial group, based in Tokyo. 4 years after the creation of its subsidiary crypto SBI VC Trade, the institution launches into bitcoin lending.

An interest rate never seen before

The official announcement came yesterday, November 24, and did not go unnoticed. SBI will offer its clients an interest rate of 1%, taxes included, against the loan of their Bitcoins.

SBI Holdings is the first Japanese financial group to tackle the crypto market. It has several foreign exchange platforms and even its own cryptomony, the S Coin. After acquiring the TaoTao exchange in October, its president, Yoshitaka Kitao, even encouraged Ripple to relocate to Japan.

Lots of fees waived

The group’s new crypto lending platform is called SBI VC Trade Lending. Initially, only Bitcoins (BTC) will be accepted. Customers will then be able to deposit between 0.1 and 5 BTC, and earn their interest percentage. In the future, the financial group will integrate ether (ETH) and XRP in its offer. It is one of Ripple’s leading partners.

There will be no deposit fees for yen or cryptos. Likewise, there will be no management fee. Only a commission will be charged on yen withdrawals.

This offer may well appeal to Japanese investors who are a bit cautious and who have not acquired Bitcoin Champion scam on their own, as well as HODLERS who do not have the time, or the desire, to trade with their cryptos. SBI certainly intends to generate much more interest than the 1% promised with their clients‘ Bitcoins.

BTC-Trader sees decline to $17,000

BTC-Trader sees decline to $17,000 – selling pressure increases again

  • Bitcoin has experienced some severe turbulence in recent hours, with selling pressure in the mid $19,000 region again proving too much for the asset.
  • BTC has been hit by a sustained wave of consolidation in recent days, with bulls guarding the mid $18,000 region while bears continue to build massive selling walls around $19,500.
  • The frequency of rejections in this price region is a grim sign – it could mean that a downward trend is imminent.
  • One trader is now waiting for a return to the $17,000 region where robust support is seen.
    Whether or not this decline will occur will likely depend largely on the crypto currency’s continued reaction to the $19,000 mark.

Bitcoin has struggled to find enough support on Bitcoin Machine the buying side to break the all-time high, which is currently in the upper $19,000 range.

Selling pressure here has proved to be quite intense on several occasions in the past and where it will develop next depends largely on how it continues to react to this level.

As BTC has faced overnight rejection here, one trader expects Bitcoin to plummet towards $17,000 before it finds significant support.

Bitcoin tries to hold above $19,000

Bitcoin is currently quoted at a price of $19,100. The asset has tried to reclaim this key price as support, but currently there is strong selling pressure, which is creating headwinds.

If it manages to break above this level and stay above it, it could experience a serious rally in the coming days and weeks.

Analysts look to $17,000 after recent sell-off

One trader believes that the overnight rejection at $19,500 indicates an underlying weakness among the bulls, which could indicate that a downward move towards $17,000 is imminent.

He has shared a chart with this downward target and comments that this move will liquidate bulls and move BTC into a support zone that could trigger an even stronger upward movement.

Soon there should be a serious insight into where the whole market will go in the days, weeks and months ahead.

If Bitcoin can reclaim and hold $19,000, it may mean that another uptrend is imminent.

Ethereum Tylko 18% Gotowy na ETH 2.0 Z jednym tygodniem do startu

Ethereum 2.0 potrzebuje ponad 524.000 ETH do 24 listopada, aby rozpocząć działalność 1 grudnia, zgodnie z planem. W tej chwili jest to tylko 18% drogi.

  • Długo oczekiwany przez Ethereum upgrade 2.0 jest uzależniony od tego, czy użytkownicy wleją dużą ilość ETH do jego umowy depozytowej.
  • Aktualizacja ma być wydana 1 grudnia, ale tylko około 18% wymaganej kwoty zostało odłożone.
  • Jeśli pełna kwota nie zostanie wpłacona w terminie, projekt zostanie opóźniony. Jeszcze raz.

Zespół deweloperów stojących za następną iteracją Ethereum pozostał optymistą

Zespół deweloperów stojących za następną iteracją Ethereum pozostał optymistą, że Ethereum 2.0 pojawi się 1 grudnia, ale na razie nie wydaje się to szczególnie realistyczne.

Według Dune Analytics, tylko 95,648 ETH zostało zaangażowanych w kontrakt depozytowy Ethereum 2.0, z wymaganych 524,288 ETH – to nieco ponad 18%. Co więcej, według głównego badacza Ethereum Foundation Danny’ego Ryana, aby rozpocząć działalność 1 grudnia zgodnie z planem, ETH musi zostać zdeponowana w umowie siedem dni wcześniej.

W pierwszej fazie aktualizacji Ethereum 2.0, która została już opóźniona o prawie rok, sieć rozpocznie przejście od protokołu „proof-of-work consensus“ do protokołu „proof-of-stake“. Proof-of-work, czyli jak działa Bitcoin blockchain, prosi „górników“ o rozwiązanie skomplikowanych łamigłówek w celu weryfikacji nowych transakcji, a pierwsza platforma obliczeniowa do rozwiązania danej łamigłówki jest nagradzana rodzimymi żetonami.

Stwarza to problem skalowalności, ponieważ ludzie, którzy chcą mieć przewagę, mogą po prostu kupić więcej mocy obliczeniowej, co pozwala im szybciej rozwiązywać zagadki; inwestorzy zbudowali całe centra danych, które istnieją wyłącznie po to, aby rozwiązywać zagadki, dając im lepszy strzał w cenne żetony kosztem ogromnych ilości energii elektrycznej.

Ethereum 2.0 ma na celu całkowite wyeliminowanie tego procesu układanki

Na łańcuchu blokad dowodu stawki, sieć zatwierdza nowe transakcje poprzez wybranie „stakera“, a wybrana osoba jest określana na podstawie tego, ile żetonów posiada. System ten wymaga pewnej ilości żetonów, aby rozpocząć pracę, dlatego Ethereum 2.0 potrzebuje 524.000 ETH. (Ethereum jest warte około 243 miliony dolarów, w dzisiejszych cenach).

Większość dotychczasowych inwestycji została zrealizowana w dużych częściach, przy czym sam współzałożyciel Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, przeznaczył na Ethereum 2.0 3200 ETH (1,4 miliona dolarów). Jeden adres, bb84d966c09264ce9a2104a4a20bbb378369986db, przeznaczył na ETH 17.088 (około 8 milionów dolarów).

Zgodnie z wpisem na blogu Danny’ego Ryana, „geneza“ projektu zostanie uruchomiona tylko wtedy, gdy niezbędna kwota ETH znajdzie się w umowie na siedem dni przed uruchomieniem.

„Jeśli nie,“ napisał, „geneza zostanie uruchomiona 7 dni po osiągnięciu tego progu (kiedy tylko będzie to możliwe).“

Kolejną komplikacją jest fakt, że premiera 1 grudnia (jeśli tak się stanie) oznacza jedynie początek pierwszej fazy aktualizacji Ethereum 2.0 i tak naprawdę nie przełączy wszystkiego na model „proof-of-stake“.

„Faza 0“ ETH 2.0 położy podwaliny pod proof-of-stake Ethereum, utrzymując istniejący model proof-of-work w nienaruszonym stanie, przynajmniej na razie. A jeśli ludzie nie włączą ETH do umowy depozytowej i nie będą jej dotrzymywać szybko, ta przyszłość może być przyzwoitą drogą wyjścia.
