Vitalik Buterin, who is the creator of Etherium had stated earlier about executing a currency cap into Ethereum network that blocks the circulations of reward to participants.

Furthermore, Vitalik Buterin proposed about 120million Ethereum on its network and he has also stated on GitHub, about removing the inflation in Ethereum by topping the maximum amount of ETH at 120,204,432- which is twice the amount of Ethereum traded at the real price.

However, Buterin wrote this on GitHub,

To ensure the economic sustenance of Ethereum network under the widest possible variety of circumstances, and in light of the fact that issuing new coins to proof of work miners is no longer an effective way of promoting an egalitarian coin distribution or any other significant policy goal, I propose that we agree on a hard cap for the total quality of Ethereum.

It is important to know that Buterin’s statements were issued on 1st of April. As a result, lots of viewers doubted whether it was true or a joke (although some viewers spoke on the advantages), due to the time the statements were published – the April fool’s day!

Interestingly, Buterin had later shown on Monday through his tweets that his statements were jokes – some sorts of ‘meta-joke’ so as to allow people not to debate on the details of the proposal and to see whether or not it was real.

Buterin had also argued that it doesn’t matter whether the joke was made or not as the statements made by him should be ascertained on their facts. “If the community wants fixed supply and people believe that EIP 960 is a good way to achieve that, then it should adopt the proposal. If the community does not, then it should not. This is true regardless of whether or not the original intent was in jest.” Buterin stated further.

The Ethereum creator also made it known that a stable supply of ETH is “something to consider,” due to the fact that the change of Ethereum to a Proof-of-Stake agreement will discard the need for mining and also permit the platform to distribute payments without creating new crypto-coins. “Cryptocurrency can avoid being too inegalitarian through the emergence of new coins, not through any single coin being super-inflationary,” Buterin also said.

Vitalik Buterin Trolls Tron for Piracy

That all said, it is also necessary to know that the joke made by the Ethereum creator on April fool’s day was not only the trick that was made on that day.

Stating on the blog which is owned by Ethereum Foundation, Buterin projected an approved ETH stablecoin also known as “The World Trade Francs” – The World Trade Francs is a stablecoin for the future of cryptocurrency industry and technology.

Although, the prank made by Buterin was a noticeable one than the joke on Github. The latter prank had an elusive jag that most people couldn’t take note of. Buterin publicized that about 20% of the posts were plagiarized from the Tron site. Which implies that the whitepaper by Tron was copied from other projects.

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
