Donald Trump's trade wars , protracted uncertainty over the expected UK exit from the EU (Brexit), and the looming threat of a global recession could be factors that in May revived activity in cryptocurrency markets, Bitcoinist writes. Against this background, traffic on the leading bitcoin exchanges, in particular, Binance and Coinbase, has noticeably increased.

So, according to SimilarWeb , Binance, which is one of the thousand most visited sites in the world, was visited by 42 million people in May. At Coinbase, the largest US cryptocurrency exchange, the figure was 35 million.

The increased attendance in turn was converted into an inflow of funds to the stock exchanges and an increase in trading volumes, which together amounted to about $ 5.9 billion last month. Also, the 14-month maximum in trading volumes was recorded at Coinbase last month. The record day came on May 17, when transactions were concluded on more than 47,400 BTC (about $ 376 million) on the stock exchange.

Economic problems are pushing the growth of transactions with Bitcoin almost all over the world, however, this is especially clearly seen in the example of Latin America. Thus, according to LocalBitcoins, in recent weeks, significant growth was recorded in Chile, Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Argentina, and in Mexico, which was also threatened by a trade war with the US, due to the uncontrolled flow of immigrants, trading volumes reached a new record level.

Also, a steady growth in the volume of transactions on LocalBitcoins is observed in Argentina, but over the past few months, the absolute record for the number of bitcoins sold in one day belongs to Brazil – according to CointraderMonitor, on April 10, platform users in this country made deals for 100,000 BTC.

In addition, in the first half of May, its own record for daily trading volume — more than $ 10 billion — was updated by the BitMEX derivatives exchange BitMEX, and already at the end of the month, the historical maximum for open contracts for Bitcoin futures was recorded at the Chicago Commodity Exchange (CME), which testifies to the growing interest of institutional investors.

The launch date of the new Ethereum 2.0 blockchain algorithm has become known – January 3, 2020

Published

on

Developer Justin Drake (Justin Drake), according to Trustnodes , called the date of transition of the Ethereum network to the second version of the protocol and the introduction of the consensus mechanism Proof of Stake (PoS). According to him, Ethereum 2.0 will become a reality in seven months – January 3, 2020, exactly 11 years after the extraction of the genesis-block of Bitcoin .

Drake also said that the developers of Ethereum for less than two weeks – until June 30 – should finalize and approve the specifications of the zero phase. Before generating the genesis block, they will have to launch a deposit contract for the accrual of funds to validators – and present it at the Devcon conference in Japan in October.

Thus, according to Drake, over the next three months, developers should collect at least 2 million ETH, and in seven months, bring the product to a “production stage”, that is, a test network that has been working for quite a long time without significant flaws and has passed a security audit, for at least two customers.

Recall that the founder of Messari, Ryan Selkis (Ryan Selkis), expects that the transition of Ethereum to the second version of the protocol will take place no earlier than 2021. In early May, Prestmatic Labs co-founder Preston Van Loon announced the public launch of a test network for Ethereum 2.0 – Sapphire – created on the basis of the Casper protocol with PoS consensus algorithm and support for stacking.

Crypto traders suffered “incalculable” losses due to a bug on the analytical service TradingView. The existence of the problem drew the attention of a Twitter user under the nickname Cryptoteddybear.

In particular, he noted that when using analytics tools for standard graphs, including Fibonacci levels, the service incorrectly displays some metrics. Such a failure, respectively, affects the results obtained during technical analysis based on the Elliott wave theory.

In response to the Cryptoteddybear entry, other traders also began to report a problem. And some revealed it a year ago.

It is noteworthy that the first error messages appeared more than five years ago on the getsatisfaction platform, but then they were ignored in TradingView.

Nevertheless, now the post Cryptoteddybear had an effect – after a while the service representatives responded to the trader, promising to sort out the situation.

However, the fact that the problem was ignored for such a long period of time, could lead to a lot of incorrect calculations and, consequently, the financial losses of many traders, according to observers. It is worth noting that, apparently, the problem has not yet been resolved, despite its recognition by the service.

Recall recently it became known that TradingView will add a cryptocurrency index, taking into account the news agenda and posts in social networks.

BlockchainJournal also reviewed the features of the service in a separate article .
