    By far, one of the most interesting Ethereum addresses I’ve seen is @0x_b1. It’s quite an interesting social experiment as well – a $300m whale starting a Twitter account for fun. Check their bio.Let’s break down the address and see what they are doing with their capital. 👇

    The narrative is that Bitcoin and Ethereum have been given LEGAL regulatory clarity. THEY HAVE NOT. Only the opinion of one SEC official at a Yahoo Conference. XRP could be the first to get LEGAL clarity.

  • From tbr90:

    I am so bullish on 2021 for DeFi and Ethereum…but I’ve had 4 friends and family reach out to me about investing in crypto for the first time in the last 2 days. Huge sign of bubble. We haven’t had a blow off top yet, but we may be closer to a peak than many think.

What Is Ethereum 2.0 And Why Does It Matter? | Binance Academy

The biggest differences between Ethereum and Ethereum 2.0 involve the use of the Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, shard chains, and the beacon chain….The first phase, or phase 0, will be dedicated to the release of the beacon chain since it’s central to the functionality of shard chains….The next phase is actually a mix of two phases: phase 1 and phase 1.5. Phase 1 will introduce shard chains, which will allow validators to create blocks on the blockchain through PoS….The final phase will be phase 2, which is when Ethereum 2.0 will support fully formed shards and become the official Ethereum network….Ethereum 2.0 is an important upgrade to the Ethereum network for a number of reasons, especially when it comes to scalability.
