The Recent Developments of Aeternity (AE)




Aeternity (AE) that sports a “blockchain 3.0” platform had recently revealed their intention to launch aeternity Starfleet. It is a series of incubator and accelerator programs that will support the blockchain system in whole. The process also involves building a chain of investors, innovators and industry enthusiasts. Yanislov Mahalov, the founder of Aeternity (AE) had commented that the launch is “the culmination of months of extensive research and preparation and underlines our commitment to be the enablers of innovation, strengthening the already thriving blockchain community worldwide.” He went on to say that the incubator programs will speed up the adoption of blockchain technology worldwide.

Aeternity Starfleet will work collaboratively with Software University (SoftUni), an organization located in Sofia, Bulgaria. SoftUni works diligently on software development education as well as networking. According to Hristo Tenchev, the founder of Software University, it is perfect time to implement the blockchain-focused incubator program in the current ecosystem. From the initial stage itself, Aeternity Starfleet will support global projects by investing up to $250,000 and will give access to Starfleet co-working spaces. The first Starfleet program is expected to start from 11th June 2018 and the training process will continue for four weeks. After the program completes, each team will be presented with the opportunity to talk about their ideas and plans in front of an audience of investors, blockchain experts and thought leaders.

Upcoming Mainnet Launch

The team of developers of Aeternity has decided to implement Bitcoin-NG for the composition of the aeternity protocol. The decision was taken on the relevance of on-chain scalability in terms of user experience within aepps. Lots of research work went into studying the technical whitepaper of Bitcoin-NG before the team had started to change the consensus mechanism of the Aeternity platform. Now, the Aeternity team is in the process of contacting several companies, blockchain professionals, and universities such that they can progress with the auditing process of their protocol. The mainnet will be ready for release once the tests have been performed and the audit process is over.

Messages aepp Utility widget

The developer’s team is focused at the moment on porting the apps to the Aeternity blockchain. Meanwhile, they have also incorporated a Utility widget in the Messages aepp. This will ease the way of accessing functionalities of other aepps. The user will be able to access the utility button on the right side of their input box. This button will open up other functionality options from other aepps to the users. They can extract information by clicking on one of the options and thus complete a task from another aepp. For instance, the Transfer aepp allows the user to send tokens to the person they were conversing with. The user does not need to find out the person in the address book or enter their address. The summary of the transaction is sent to the chat window and the user can check its status by simply referring to this part of the chat.

State Channels

From the blog of Aeternity, “Two or more parties open a state channel. Each party enters the channel with a balance written onto the blockchain. The parties transact in the state channel. Their account balances are written onto the blockchain again at the closing of the channel and possibly periodically throughout making use of the channel. Every transaction has to be signed by all parties that are part of the channel.” The benefits of conducting transactions through the state channel are that they are completed almost instantly and there is no transaction charge. State channels are also essential in risk management.

A New Member

Alexander Kahl has recently joined the aeternity dev tools team. He comes with an extensive experience in different technologies and programming methodologies. Before joining the aeternity team as a developer, he had worked with LShift, Nokia, and iconmobile. Here, Alexander Kahl will work on the JavaScript SDK that will help the developers with little experience in blockchain to create strong blockchain-based applications.

Price Analysis

No massive drop or rise can be seen from the data. Currently, the crypto coin is ranked at 28th position at At the time of writing, the price shows approximately $3.23 USD (-2.24%) while the market cap is nearly $752,294,943 USD.

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV



Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?




One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
