The launch of Ethereum 2.0 (ETH) is scheduled for 1 December 2020.

  • 4. November 2020 at 19:34

It’s now official, the wait for Ethereum 2.0 is coming to an end. The new version should be online on December 1st, 2020, provided that it gathers a sufficient number of validators.

The launch of Ethereum 2.0 (ETH) is planned for 1 December 2020.

Ethereum 2.0, the „Messiah“ finally arrives
The wait was long, very long, for the followers of Ethereum (ETH). After many doubts about the arrival of Ethereum 2.0, the developers have just lifted the veil on its launch date.

According to a publication on the blog of the Ethereum Foundation, the first version of Ethereum 2.0 should be launched on 1 December 2020, at 13:00 Paris time, on the sole condition that 16,384 validators have joined the network 7 days before this date.

If this is not the case, the Genesis block of Ethereum 2.0 will be triggered 7 days after this threshold has been reached (regardless of the time).

In addition, each validator will have to trigger 32 ETH, which currently represents nearly $13,000. The total amount expected to launch ETH 2.0 is $213 million.

The effect of the announcement on ETH’s share price is notable, with ETH having committed an increase of almost 7% at the time of writing, from $383 to $407.

Participate in the launch of Ethereum 2.0 – What do you need to know?
The process to become a validator of the Ethereum 2.0 network takes place on the „Eth 2 Launch Pad“, a platform that guides the user through the process.

If you are interested in participating in the Ethereum 2.0 launch, the press release reminds you of a simple, yet essential practice. Check, and re-check as many times as possible, the address of the deposit contract before sending funds.

Please also note that sending your ETHs to the Ethereum deposit agreement is not to be taken lightly. Indeed, the launch on 1 December corresponds to phase 0 of the transition to Proof of Stake for Ethereum.

As transfers are blocked at least until phase 1, there is no way for a validator to leave voluntarily. Validators will have to wait for phase 2, i.e. about 2 years, before they can withdraw their ETHs.

Sending 32 ETHs in the contract therefore corresponds to a 2-year commitment on your part, in addition to requiring the operation and maintenance of the validation software on a dedicated machine.

Your passwords could be for sale on the Dark Web

  • 24. Juli 2020 at 14:13

A recent study revealed that more than 15 billion credentials are in circulation through the Dark Web, representing a 300% increase since 2018. The information available ranges from network access credentials, bank login data and even streaming service accounts such as Netflix.

The price of Bitcoin will increase as investor demographics change
According to research conducted by the cybersecurity company, Digital Shadows, some of the filtered data even circulates for free.

The report warns that the reason why so many account credentials are available online is that people use not very complex passwords that can easily be forced with hacking tools.

Access to corporate networks are an open door for ransomware attacks

The most valuable credentials filtered include access to corporate networks. This type of data can reach prices of up to $120,000 and usually costs an average of $3,139, depending on several factors such as company revenue.

Member of the Catalan government published a book with proposals to make Catalonia a digital nation
The circulation of such data means that ransomware groups can use such access to infiltrate an entire network. This would allow them to deploy the malware of their choice and ultimately hold these networks to ransom.

Individual bank login details are sold at an average price of USD 70.91, while access to anti-virus programs costs an average of USD 21.67.

Bitcoin will never be truly private, says Andreas Antonopoulos

Enable multiple factors to secure your login credentials
Speaking to Cointelegraph, Brett Callow, a threat analyst at the Emsisoft malware lab, warned:

„An immense amount of user credentials are exposed daily in many ways, from phishing, to malware attacks and data breaches. The consequences of exposure can be minor, such as in the case of Netflix login leaks, or extremely serious, such as leaked banking credentials.

While there is no „silver bullet“ against this problem, Callow says, that individuals can limit the likelihood that their accounts will be compromised by using strong passwords, „never reusing passwords, an anti-virus solution, keeping your operating system up to date with patches, and most importantly, using two- or multi-factor authentication on all services that support it.

Research conducted by cybersecurity firm, Cyble Research Team, revealed that on May 29th, data from more than 80,000 credit cards were released on the Dak Web. The data on these cards appears to have been collected from several countries around the world.

Cointelegraph also reported that a group of hackers known as the „Keeper“ established an interconnected network to steal credit card data from more than 570 e-commerce sites. Since 2017, they have generated more than USD 7 million in crypto currency by selling card information through the Dark Web.

Bitwala joins Celsius in offering interest to cryptomoney holders

  • 26. Mai 2020 at 7:51

Bitwala, the German blockchain banking company, has partnered with the pioneering decentralized financing platform Celsius, or DeFi, to offer an annual interest in Bitcoin’s (BTC) shares of up to 4%.

Funds deposited by clients who choose to use Bitwala’s interest account will be lent to institutional users through Celsius, earning a weekly interest on their Bitcoin and delivered to them in the same crypt-currency.

In the midst of the pandemic crisis, the crypt-currency lender Celsius reaches 50 thousand in Bitcoin deposits

German bank blockchain integrates Celsius
Bitwala sees DeFi as „a new way of generating wealth,“ emphasizing the opportunity for passive income to be generated from cryptomoney stocks.

Users can deposit as little as $12 Bitcoin Trader – Immediate Edge – Cryptosoft – Bitcoin Profit – Bitcoin Code equivalent into Bitwala interest accounts, and can add and withdraw funds at any time. Only network fees are incurred when using the account, and investments and withdrawals are processed at no cost to the user.

Celsius CEO talks about why Bitcoin’s price didn’t explode during the Coronavirus pandemic
Celsius has provided more than $6.2 billion since its launch in June 2018, with the firm providing loans to a network of more than 150 institutional borrowers. Celsius takes 20% of the interest earned from user funds, and pays the remaining 80% directly to users.

Profits generated by the application change slightly each week in response to market dynamics.

DeFi loans as a catalyst for widespread adoption

Speaking to Cointelegraph, Celsius founder, VoIP patent holder and renowned Internet entrepreneur Alex Mashinky said the DeFi platform was designed „to create something that would be more useful and create less volatility“ and drive widespread adoption.

DeFi loans attract venture capital backing despite large drop in crypto fundraising
With deteriorating global economic conditions and rapidly declining bank interest rates, Mashinky argues that providing easy access to interest income opens up a multi-billion dollar market for cryptomoney.

„Seven billion people want to make a profit and they want to earn interest. If you could do that, and do it ten, twenty, fifty times better than your bank, and build trust, that’s how you win [people] over.

Binance verbindet sich mit Paxful, um Bitcoin-Einkäufe zu rationalisieren.verbindet sich mit Paxful, um Bitcoin-Einkäufe zu rationalisieren

  • 16. Dezember 2019 at 11:27

Die Krypto-Börse Binance mit Sitz in Malta, die stolz darauf ist, eine der weltweit führenden Handelsplattformen zu sein, hat Neuigkeiten über ihre neue strategische Zusammenarbeit mit Paxful, der führenden P2P-Plattform, die den Benutzern einen nahtlosen Bitcoin-Einkauf ermöglicht, verbreitet. Am Donnerstag kamen die beiden führenden Unternehmen zusammen, um eine Partnerschaft einzugehen, um die Erfahrungen ihrer Nutzer zu verbessern, da die Nutzer von Binance Krypto Exchange nun in der Lage sein werden, Bitcoins auf einfache Weise zu erwerben.

Ausführung von Handelsaktivitäten

Den neuesten Berichten zufolge wird Paxful den Binance-Kunden den Service seiner Virtual Bitcoin Kiosk-Lösung zur bequemen Ausführung von Handelsaktivitäten hier zur Verfügung stellen. Die Investoren können Bitcoin auf Paxful mit Papierwährungen wie US-Dollar, Kanadischer Dollar, Russischer Rubel, Kolumbianischer Peso, Indonesische Rupie, Vietnamesischer Dong, Britisches Pfund, Mexikanischer Peso, Euro und Argentinischer Peso kaufen.

Binance Exchange arbeitet mit Paxful zusammen, um die Handelserfahrung der Krypto-Exchange-Kunden in 167 Ländern der Welt zu revolutionieren und zu optimieren. Die Integration dürfte die Nachfrage von Bitcoin ankurbeln und den Preis auf dem Markt erhöhen.


Außerdem wird der Schritt von der Krypto-Community als wichtiger Schritt zur Massenakzeptanz begrüßt, da er das Bitcoin-Kaufverfahren vereinfacht

Es wird angenommen, dass, wenn die grundlegenden technischen Grundlagen der Kryptoindustrie für die breite Öffentlichkeit vereinfacht werden, eine verstärkte Beteiligung der Bevölkerung in der Branche zu beobachten sein wird. Da Bitcoin und Paxful den Kauf von Bitcoin mit Fiat-Währungen ermöglichen werden, ist es wahrscheinlich, dass die Menschen ein größeres Interesse am zuverlässigen und sicheren Handel mit digitalen Währungen zeigen werden.

Derzeit sind die in Argentinien und Brasilien lebenden Kunden von Binance dem Handel mit Bitcoin gegen Fiat ausgesetzt. Dies ist möglich durch die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Binance und Latamex. Latamex ist eine renommierte Plattform für Devisentransaktionen und grenzüberschreitende Zahlungen im gesamten LATAM (Lateinamerika).
