Support for TWO New Protocols Are Coming To Uniswap...

Uniswap adds Gnosis and Moonbeam.

Uniswap, the largest Ethereum-based decentralized exchange, and second layer solutions such as Optimism and Arbitrum, as well as Polygon, an Ethereum sidechain.

Following the community's approval of the proposed changes and confirmation of the needed votes, Uniswap will also launch on two other networks: Gnosis and Moonbeam.

"The vote had almost unanimous approval for both networks"
said a UniSwap Labs spokesperson. 

Gnosis and Moonbeam will be the first Ethereum-independent networks that Uniswap will support. However, because these are two networks are compatible with the Ethereum programming languages and smart contracts, the implementation process should be straightforward.

Moonbeam and Gnosis have agreed to make financial contributions to Uniswap before they go live on the platform.

In the case of Moonbeam, $2.5 million will be donated for the purpose of granting scholarships, and Gnosis will contribute $10 million to provide liquidity to the exchange in its network.

Ethereum 2.0 (The Official Merge of Blockchains) Launch in AUGUST!? "Stars are aligned" Says Ethereum Foundation Team Member...

 

Ethereum 2.0

Speaking at the Permissionless 2022 Conference this week in Florida, Ethereum Foundation Sharding researcher Justin Drake said:

“It won't be June, but likely in the few months after. No firm date yet, but we're definitely in the final chapter of PoW on Ethereum.”

He than elaborated, saying...

“As far as we know, if everything goes to plan, August—it just makes sense. If we don't have to move, let's do it as soon as we can.””

Finally, giving his reasoning behind the date...

“Strong desire to make this happen before difficulty bomb in August. Stars are aligned.”

What is a difficulty bomb? 

The big deal about Ethereum 2.0 is the change to Proof Of Stake mining, the essentials you need to know are: this no longer requires the use of power-hungry mining rigs used in the current 'Proof Of Work' mining.  

The current type of mining is considered bad for the environment, because miners have computer processors working at maximum levels to solve mathematical puzzles, included in this process is encrypting and processing transactions, and creating newly minted coins which are given to miners as a their reward.

The difficulty bomb was created by Ethereum developers in 2016 with the merge to 2.0 in mind.  Once it begins, the bomb will exponentially increase the difficulty level of the puzzles required for proof of work mining, eventually making that mining impossible to do. 

The difficulty bomb is intended to stop miners who wish to continue mining the Ethereum 1.0 (Proof of Work) chain once the network has fully moved to Ethereum 2.0 (Proof of Stake).

The old and new method were supposed to overlap for awhile before the difficulty bomb kicks in, but they've lagged so long on Ethereum 2.0's launch that back in 2016 when they scheduled the difficulty bomb, they imagined Ethereum 2.0 would have launched long before now.  

A short history:

Nov 2017 "The Ethereum Killer Is Ethereum 2.0" Nasdaq reported.

June 2019 "Ethereum “ETH 2.0” Genesis Block May Launch in January 2020" Blocknomi reported 

Feb 2020 "95% Confidence': Ethereum Developers Pencil In July 2020 for Eth 2.0 Launch" Coindesk reported

May 2020 "Vitalik Buterin Says Much-Delayed Ethereum 2.0 Still on Track for July Launch" Coindesk reported.

From this point onward, there's a never-ending supply of articles saying the launch is near, sometimes based on nothing and sometime fueled by statements from Ethereum developers that imply this is the case. 

So, does this mean we can definitely expect the merge complete and Ethereum 2.0 up and operational by August? 

Nope.  Developers can propose pushing it back, it's happened before

While it would be yet another failed milestone, something most developers would find embarrassing, in the case of Ethereum's dev team it's just another entry on the massive list of all the other meaningless deadlines they gave the public.

This Week's NASDAQ Market Losses Tops Bitcoin's...

NASDAQ vs Bitcoin

The market's anxieties about the impact of inflation on the economy were heightened this week by the quarterly results of major retail chains, which showed smaller earnings than expected. This uncertainty was mirrored not only in the department store industry, but also in other sectors of the economy, putting downward pressure on stock prices.

This week's publication of Target's quarterly financial results started the rough week for many NADAQ listed.  The disappointing numbers reaffirmed the trend of consumers focused on spending on essentials like food, and holding off on things like televisions and bicycles. Target's sales and profitability fell short of expectations, and their stock plunged 25% on Wednesday as a result of the earnings decrease, which was even more severe than Walmart's.

The first warning came with Walmart's quarterly financial statements on Tuesday, which revealed a large dip in profits, triggering a stock price slump that began on Tuesday and has yet to stop.

Walmart began the week at $150/share and is ending it at $118.  Target began the week at $220 and is ending it at $152.

The end result (as time of writing) is Bitcoin losing -1.62% this week, and NASDAQ down -3.79%

Bitcoin gets a bounce...

The "realized price" is a well known metric among Bitcoin price analysists, and is calculated by dividing the sum of the values ​​of all coins at the time they were last moved, by the circulating supply. Analysis company Glassnote points out as the 'realized price' approaches, traders buy without hesistation because they believe they can be confident that Bitcoin is undervalused at the moment.  

The current realized price is $24,000, but traders haven't allowed it to get that low - $26,513 is the lowest BTC has gone during the current downtrend. "This may be due in part to the general market awareness of its (realized price) existence" said Glassnode.

"BITCOIN CRASHING. Great news" Rich Dad Poor Dad author Robert Kiyosaki tweeted last week, adding "Once I know bottom is in I back up the truck. Crashes are the best times to get rich."

But don't get excited yet...

We do have enough information where I can say with confidence - this is just another standard dip. One of the larger ones, but the kind we've had before. By that I mean, the kind where we go on to set new all time highs when it's all over. 

So play it smart from here, because the right moves made now will pay off large than those done in a bull market.  You want to ride the trade you make from the bear market, into the bull market.

On that note, if you're newer to crypto and want a simple, low risk way to get those big future payouts. you want to be dollar cost averaging. It's an insanely simple method, and makes it where you don't need to be right about every move you make. Read about it here, or watch a video on it here.

3 Hot Tokens For NFT Collectors, Fans, and Creators...

 

Meta’s Facebook and Instagram recently announced support for NFTs, including those built on the Polygon (MATIC) and Solana (SOL) networks. Thanks to the ongoing bear market also, means that now is a great opportunity for those looking to invest long-term into cryptos that have a major focus and support for NFTs, such as Mushe Token (XMU).

Polygon (MATIC) NFTs Will Join Facebook and Instagram First, Along With Ethereum


When Facebook and Instagram add support for non-fungible tokens (NFTs), users will be able to share NFTs with friends and family by connecting their crypto wallets to their accounts. NFTs on the Ethereum and Polygon (MATIC) networks will be the first two out of a total of five to be supported by the social media platforms.

The Polygon (MATIC) network is a side-chain built on the Ethereum platform. It is a layer 2 solution which means that the speed of transactions on the network is lightning fast whilst mitigating unnecessary transaction fees.

Polygon (MATIC) is also featured on OpenSea which is built on the same blockchain network and is, by far, the largest of all the NFT marketplaces and the first. OpenSea does support NFTs created on the Polygon (MATIC) network and its success has been driven by its compatibility, as it also supports NFTs from various networks including Ethereum and Klaytn.

Solana (SOL) NFTs Will Also Be Added to Meta’s Social Networks Later


NFTs on Solana (SOL) will be among the second cohort of NFTs to be added to Facebook and Instagram, along with NFTs on the Flow blockchain.

Solana (SOL) is the utility token for Solana which is a blockchain network upon which smart contracts can be deployed. This means that, like on Ethereum, talented developers can build tokens. Benefits of Solana (SOL) include low transaction fees and high-speed performance, partially thanks to the proof-of-stake consensus algorithm.

NFTs created on Solana can also be traded on OpenSea.



Mushe Token (XMU) Supports Interoperability and NFT Trading on Social Media


Mushe Token (XMU) will not be among the likes of Polygon (MATIC) and Solana (SOL) in joining Facebook or Instagram as it has not yet launched. The project is currently in the presale stage and offers a great opportunity for a long-term return on investment for early adopters who can get involved at a fraction of the value Mushe Token (XMU) has the potential to reach on secondary markets.

The token can be used in the MusheVerse, a Metaverse that will incorporate all of the products from the Mushe Token (XMU) ecosystem. These include Mushe Chat, a social media application where users can send and receive messages from family and friends with full end-to-end encryption. Users can connect their Mushe Wallet crypto wallets to Mushe Chat also for NFT sharing.

NFTs can be created and sold on the Mushe Token (XMU) NFT marketplace, and the team behind the project will be releasing its series of NFT collectables soon.

The presale for Mushe Token (XMU) is ongoing and the first stage is now live.

Man BREAKS IN To Home To CONFRONT Luna Founder After Losing Over $2 Million in Coins Recent Collapse...

Terraluna Luna founder breakin

A crypto investor was arrested today in Seoul, South Korea for trespassing at the residence of Do Kwon, the co-founder and CEO of Terraform Labs.

The suspect, whose identity has been concealed, allegedly entered the apartment complex in eastern Seoul last week and rang the doorbell when Kwon's wife was at home, looking for him.

Kwon is at the heart of the Terra cryptocurrency's and Luna's digital coin counterparts' huge downfall. Luna's price has dropped to under 1cent, having traded for over $80 at the beginning of the month, while their stablecoin built to always be worth $1 continues to massively miss the mark at $0.09.

"I've lost between 2 and 3 billion won (US$2.3 million)" the suspect told reporters during an inquiry at Seongdong Police Station.

The suspect, who runs an online broadcasting channel, alleges that people have committed suicide as a result of the stablecoins' decline.

Pleading with Kwon to take responsibility for the current catastrophe, the suspect said Kwon should apologize to the over 200,000 investors who have lost money.

Kwon's wife requested police protection after his visit, according to officials.

Terraform Labs says they are working on ways to keep its Terra blockchain and ecosystem running despite the collapse of its cryptocurrency.

Coinbase Faces Lawsuit Over Failed Stablecoin... and it isn't TerraUSD!

coinbase lawsuit gyen stablecoin

Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase was chastised for promoting and facilitating the trade of the GYEN stablecoin, which turned out to be a failure. GYEN is a cryptocurrency that was created on the Ethereum network to match the value of the Japanese yen.

"Donovan," a representative of "hundreds of users" of the platform in the case, filed the claim in the Federal Court of North Carolina, United States.

In addition to the exchange, the lawsuit also names GMO-Z.com as the issuing business of the GYEN token. These two entities are accused of giving investors inaccurate information about the cryptocurrency's reliability when Coinbase launched it for exchange and released a guide outlining its key features.

According to the lawsuit, investors would have purchased the GYEN tokens believing that each one was worth one yen, but their value was "inflated."

The token's value sank by more than 80% in a single day.

According to CoinMarketCap statistics, GYEN is now trading at $0.0077, while the correct price is $0.77 USD per yen at the time of writing, that is 10X lower than intended.

GMO-Z also has another stablecoin, ZUSD (ZUSD), that is pegged to the value of the US dollar but has found a way to keep its peg to the currency.

The lawsuit currently awaits review, filed in the US District Court, Northern District of California (San Francisco).

Coming to a feed near you: NFTs are now scheduled to enter social media platforms!

Mushe Token

Ever since its emergence dating back as early as 1997, social media has completely revolutionised the way that we communicate, interact and engage with each other. Social networking platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and TikTok are responsible for providing people with opportunities to create businesses, portray their best works, and freely express themselves online. But the fun of social media does not end there. 

NFTs future on social media:

Imagine a world where non-fungible tokens (NFTs) existed within social media platforms. Well, you do not do it any longer. On May 9, 2022, Instagram announced that they will be testing NFTs for the first time. This announcement came from Instagram’s CEO Adam Moressi, stating that the NFTs tests will begin as early as next week. Ever since, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has also stated that Facebook will follow suit with NFT testing as well. 

Prominent social media platforms such as these will benefit significantly from having NFTs, as this would entice artists to want to use their platform because it provides another outlet where they can distribute their best works without restrictions. Not only that, but Instagram wants to introduce ‘digital collectables’, which are unique editions of virtual items. The plan is to allow users to share these collectables, where participants would be able to display public information, regarding what they have posted. For example, the post could convey the description of the NFT, providing consumers with more context. The NFT idea for Instagram stems back to the summer of last year when they commenced with examples that showcase and facilitates NFTs - an aspect that could lead to the expansion of the digital market.

The NFT Marketplace

The NFT Marketplace is one that is consistently and rapidly growing as blockchain technology is advancing. Particularly within the past few years, non-fungible tokens have virtually struck the Metaverse out of nowhere. It has transitioned from being an element that was almost in complete obscurity, to a fundamental contributor to the growth of cryptocurrencies. 

Crypto experts and financial market analysts have predicted that the NFT market will have a thriving future. According to research obtained by coinmarket.com, the NFT market is estimated to increase by 35% into a $13.6 billion industry by 2027. Key factors to pushing the market forward currently include the development of the gaming community, notable influencers publicly expressing their opinions, and the strong demand for digital goods and services. Additionally, blockchain technology could help the growth of NFTs, through their initiatives and customisation opportunities. 


NFTs in Mushe Token (XMU) 

The Mushe Token (XMU) is a decentralized financial network, that is in its first phase and currently allowing users to register for their presale. It has the intention of migrating to Stellar’s open networks, allowing users to have low transaction costs and inclusion. In their litepaper, Mushe states how they plan to join “the fastest-growing ecosystem for NFTs and play to earn gaming”. If the Mushe Token (XMU) follows suit with its claim, incorporating NFTs and P2E in games they're involved in, could allow users to passively exchange and gain financially - giving people a firm incentive to get involved with this cryptocurrency. The blockchain's official launch is set to be on Independence Day (July 4), an intriguing gift not just for Americans, but for everyone to discover.

DeFi Coins with Great Potential: Chainlink (LINK), Fantom (FTM) and Calyx Token (CLX)...

Calyx Token

While there is no question that Chainlink (LINK) and Fantom (FTM) are well-established tokens and great investments for the long term, a new token known as Calyx (CLX) has a fair opportunity to turn out to be a decent prospective long-term investment.

Fantom has followed in the footsteps of Chainlink and has become a popular DeFi cryptocurrency. It has managed to effectively use the power of community together with a good use case.

Meanwhile, the Calyx Token (CLX) aids in switching tokens between several blockchains with the touch of a button and is decentralised, enabling users to stake coins and administer the protocol via a DAO.

Let us go a little more into these three coins and determine whether they are worth investing in.

Chainlink (LINK)

Since October 2018, Chainlink (LINK) has made significant progress. Oracles that allow smart contracts to execute safely in response to verified real-world events are essential, given that smart contracts serve as the basis for DeFi.

Chainlink originally offered cryptocurrency price data to DeFi protocols such as Aave through a restricted number of sources. However, it currently incorporates a considerably larger scope of operations.

In addition, AccuWeather and the Associated Press have teamed with Chainlink to verify data, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt has joined as an adviser, the latest signals that major tech and media are taking note of Chainlink's increasing possibilities.

Later this year, Chainlink will include staking, which will enable LINK holders to contribute to network security by encrypting a part of their LINK and collecting incentives.

LINK has fallen more than 82 percent of its value from its all-time high, indicating that now may be the optimum moment to purchase due to its substantial upside potential for 2022.


Fantom (FTM)

Fantom (FTM) is a smart contract platform that provides developers with a range of DeFi services.

Fantom's (FTM) primary emphasis is transaction speed; the firm claims to have reduced transaction speeds to under two seconds. The FTM token can be staked to get rewards and is the native currency which enables the platform's transactions.

Since Fantom has a faster transaction processing speed than Ethereum (ETH), the leading DeFi ecosystem, 2022 might be a pivotal year for the Fantom’s business.

In a few years, Fantom (FTM) could even rival Ethereum (ETH) and might be one of the greatest investments in 2022.


Calyx Token (CLX)

Calyx Token (CLX) intends to improve the experience of individuals who purchase cryptocurrencies via exchanges but are irritated by the slow and expensive process.

This procedure will be eased by the network's Calyx Swap, which allows users to swap between tokens in a single transaction at the best available prices across all DEX platforms.

Total decentralisation is also a key value of Calyx (CLX). The permissionless exchange procedure of the protocol will not require users to establish an account or register.

According to the roadmap, the token will first function on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, with ambitions to spread to additional blockchains in the future.

In addition, Calyx Token (CLX) will be community-driven, maintained, and regulated by individuals who own the native token CLX, courtesy of CalyxDAO. 

As the Calyx Token (CLX) grows, it will empower the community by enabling them to vote on and execute crucial network choices. Given its use case and great growth possibilities, the CLX cryptocurrency is a solid investment.

Therefore, investors seeking cryptos with a significant track record of success can consider investing in both Chainlink (LINK) and Fantom (FTM).

Meanwhile, Calyx Token (CLX) is available in presale and might be your ticket to becoming the next cryptocurrency millionaire.

Crypto Real Estate - When The Time To Buy is NOW...


PLAYA DE LAS AMERICAS, SPAIN - After a couple years riddled with tension brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s reaction to it, and the struggles of the global economy to get back on track, people are starting to remember what it feels like to be normal again.

The need to find strong investments for your financial well-being and the desire to have a place to ‘get away from it all’ have never been more important than they are right now.

For investors savvy enough to have gotten into the cryptocurrency market, they have remarkable value in their portfolios and are itching to translate it into equitable, tangible long-term investments.

They offer a 'turnkey operation' that can handle your needs from end to end so that you only have to worry about which property to buy and what you want to do with it after you take possession.

Esco Crypto Estate's team is legally savvy and excels at accounting for the myriad of subtleties involved with the acquisition of real estate, particularly when dealing in international transactions. They know the factors many crypto holders are looking for when deciding where to invest, "Privacy and confidentiality are essential linchpins for cryptocurrency holders and we hold those two qualities in the same high regard for our customers" a company spokesperson said.

Using cryptocurrency to buy real estate can help someone avoid having to gum up their financial portfolio with unwanted paperwork and compliance protocol. Esco Crypto Estate allows someone to use their connections in the Australian and English investment management sector, turning cryptocurrency holdings into prime luxury villas and other real estate holdings in the most highly-desired locations on Earth.
