Can SegWit Support Make the Bitcoin Price Rise Even Higher? 179

Bitcoin is undergoing some big changes as we speak. In the latest client update, SegWit becomes enabled by default. It is a big step forward to improving the scalability of this cryptocurrency ecosystem.

Boosting SegWit Adoption

Quite some time ago, the Bitcoin network was slated to receive a scaling update. Known as Segregated Witness, the solution was not to everyone’s liking. It ended up splitting the Bitcoin community into two separate camps altogether. As such, the “use” of SegWit has always remained abysmal. The people who did not agree with SegWit eventually hard forked Bitcoin to create Bitcoin Cash. That altcoin uses a direct block size increase to improve overall transaction throughput.

Increasing SegWit adoption has not been easy since that “split”, though. Roughly 12% of all network transactions make use of this scaling solution. A lot of service providers have struggled to integrate Segregated Witness into their existing code. It now seems that struggle will finally come to an end.

With the latest 0.16 Bitcoin Core client, SegWit support is enabled by default. The user wallet interface allows anyone to use this scaling solution without tinkering or advanced knowledge. Making this scaling solution more approachable has been a battle of its own kind over the past few months.  If enough users upgrade to the new client, we may finally see things improve for the Bitcoin network as a whole.

The Rising Bitcoin Price

For service providers, this upgrade will be considered to be a welcome change. Although this is a user-oriented SegWit solution first and foremost, exchanges and wallet providers will benefit from it as well. More specifically, the integration of this scaling solution may go a lot smoother. It will take some time until SegWit becomes the default solution on the Bitcoin network.  

This news comes at an interesting time for Bitcoin. After a slump during the first six weeks of 2018, the Bitcoin price is rebounding strongly. It seems money is flowing into all cryptocurrencies once again. If Bitcoin can become a peer-to-peer currency again, this value will only continue to skyrocket. At the same time, the market price is mainly based on speculation first and foremost.

A switch to SegWit-by-default may also improve merchant support again. Several companies dropped Bitcoin support over the high fees and transaction delays. If those are non-issues in the future, spending the world’s leading cryptocurrency will become easier again.  Additionally, the Bitcoin Dominance Index has been on the rise as well. Right now, Bitcoin is one of the strongest climbers in all of cryptocurrency. Even so, we will have to wait and see how things evolve as far as this new update is concerned.

0G Launches Newton Testnet of Ultra-Scalable Modular AI Blockchain 6015

0G Labs is pleased to unveil the launch of the testnet for 0G, the modular ultra-high data throughput blockchain optimized for on-chain AI. The network is now available for node operators, developers and the community to join and provide feedback for an upcoming mainnet launch in Q3 2024.

0G, or ZeroGravity, is a modular blockchain that aims to alleviate the major pain points of using blockchain for AI, where data and execution requirements outweigh the current market offering by several orders of magnitude. The modular architecture enables 0G to offer a lean and performant network, unencumbered by legacy consensus algorithms, unrelated use cases sharing the same block space, as well as on-demand scaling.

Demand for on-chain AI is growing due to its promise of offering reliable and credibly neutral training and execution of neural networks. According to a report by KPMG, the vast majority of global corporate executives see AI as one of the fundamental technology breakthroughs that will impact their business in the near future. However, adoption risks abound — including potential intellectual property issues, personal data sharing, lack of regulatory frameworks and biases in generative AI models.

Via immutable and verifiable storage and execution environments, blockchains offer a promising solution to address the many challenges of AI. By making AI workflow decentralized, it democratizes the technology and makes it accessible to more people and organizations. By distributing data across multiple nodes rather than centralizing it in a single location, decentralized AI can help protect sensitive information from hacks and breaches. It also enables fair distribution of rewards to the contributors in the entire workflow, e.g., to data, model, and computation power providers, respectively. The distributed ledger and cryptographic technologies can further give more transparent ways to track the AI generated data to help people distinguish between the authentic original data and deepfakes. In addition, blockchains can help achieve a balanced approach to manual interventions in the models’ results, which sometimes can miss the mark.

Existing infrastructure solutions are still insufficient for massive on-chain AI adoption, which is why 0G is building the next-generation blockchain infrastructure for AI. With benchmarks of over 50 Gpbs data throughput, compared to existing rates of 1.5 Mbps on Ethereum-based scaling solutions, 0G offers an incredible improvement in its baseline form, while the modular architecture promises potentially infinite scalability down the line.

“The public launch of our testnet marks the first stage of bringing AI on-chain, which will combine two of the most exciting technologies that emerged in the past decade,” said Michael Heinrich, CEO of 0G Labs. “Our team has worked diligently over the past months to deliver our vision of the ultra-scalable modular blockchain, and we’re really excited to see the feedback from the community of users and developers.”

The 0G testnet launch comes shortly after 0G Labs closed its $35M pre-seed round, which was originally intended to collect $5M to bring an MVP of the idea to market. The round, led by Hack VC, saw participation from many influential investors primarily in the Web3 space, including Bankless, Polygon, Delphi Digital, TRGC, Dao5, Symbolic, BlockChain Builders Fund, Dispersion, Daedalus, Gumi Cryptos and many more venture funds and angel investors.

About 0G

0G, or ZeroGravity, is a leading Web3 infrastructure provider that is building the leading modular AI blockchain creating solutions to implement on-chain AI applications in the Web3 ecosystem. The platform achieves high data availability through its unique architecture separating data storage and data publishing.

Tanuki Announces “Cheeky” Memecoin Launchpad on Solana and Live Token Presale 6117

Tanuki launched recently on Solana, aiming to “redefine the meme game and bring unprecedented joy to the community” through the Tanuki Launchpad supporting reliable memecoin projects. The platform’s native token, $TANUPAD, is now available for presale.

The project has a laidback approach to the crypto cosmos, promoting fairness and transparency for all while communicating in a humorous, “cheeky” tone. Its mission is to empower genuine meme projects and accelerate innovation in the blockchain space via the $TANUPAD token, available in a total supply of 2 billion tokens.

One of the platform’s standout features is the Tanuki Launchpad, supporting the most used blockchains, including Solana, Ethereum, BNB, Avalanche, Arbitrum, SEI, SUI, Cardano, and Metis. By fully embracing network diversity, the launchpad can support numerous projects during their first steps into the cryptosphere and showcase their potential to a broader audience.

The $TANUPAD token fuels the growing Tanuki ecosystem and provides holders with numerous benefits. For example, holding $TANUPAD gives governance influence and a say in the project’s evolution. Moreover, holders can access potential earning opportunities by staking and farming their tokens and exploring the many lucrative opportunities on the launchpad. The platform does not impose KYC for token holders participating in IDOs, allowing for greater investor diversity.

No less than 45% of the 2 billion $TANUPAD tokens are available for the presale, which is now live. The token is listed on major exchanges, including Gate.io, Raydium, MEXC Global, LBANK, and HTX.

Tanuki’s commitment to complete decentralization is visible in its smart contract code, which was stripped of all minting and freezing features. This means the owner relinquishes all control and guarantees a fair and transparent use for all participants.

Another feature that sets Tanuki apart from numerous memecoin projects is its setup system, which controls participation in launchpads and prevents possible dumps. Additionally, the platform protects project launches from potential rug pulls through advanced safety systems. These security measures distinguish Tanuki as a reliable launchpad for projects that are not counterfeit or deceptive.

About Tanuki

Tanuki launched in 2024 with the goal of becoming a beacon of transparency and trustworthiness among memecoin project launchpads. To this end, it commits to fostering an inclusive and collaborative ecosystem that enables projects to raise funds, connect with investors, and gain widespread adoption across multiple blockchain networks.

The project benefits from an expert team of professionals building its path toward global visibility and use. One of their objectives is to establish a robust and loyal community and engage with it via social media channels, such as X (Twitter) and Telegram.

Following the ongoing presale, Tanuki will seek to obtain more listings on decentralized and centralized exchanges, introduce the staking platform, and integrate SUI and SEI networks with its launchpad. Future plans include the launch of its proprietary DEX, Tanuki Launchpad Swap.

So far, Tanuki has successfully passed an audit with SolidProof, one of the industry’s top auditors.

Waterfall Network Launches New Desktop App for Windows and macOS 6092

Waterfall Network, the decentralized and scalable ledger, today announced the release of a new desktop app for Windows and macOS that now allows almost anyone to easily set up their own node on the blockchain. With one-click setup, users only need to download and open the app, their Metamask (or any EVM) wallet, and they will have a full node running in sync with Waterfall Network.

Once users are connected, they can activate the node to receive stake amounts and rewards, view network status and connected peers, manage block producers on the node by creating or removing them, check balances, use external SSD drives as a data storage device, and customize other node settings.

“Supporting the Waterfall Network is now simpler than ever,” said Sergii Grybniak, Blue Wave CTO and Waterfall Head of Research. “This is not only an easy way for even novices to participate in the benefits of a blockchain, but this will also open up Waterfall node participation to a whole new class of user that will prove vital to building Waterfall before we publicly launch the mainnet.”

The Waterfall Network continues to streamline and expand its scale in anticipation of the launch of its mainnet. The Waterfall Network protocol has been optimized to achieve loads of 10,000+ transactions per second, with other optimizations and improvements, including faster synchronizations in parallel, improved search for new peers, automatically unlocked validators, improved reliability in optimistic consensus, randomness creation, new transaction gas estimates, and storage optimization. Waterfall is also continuing to develop and implement fast synchronization, simpler mnemonic phrase mechanisms, and reduced consumption of disk space.

The Waterfall Network protocol is Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatible, serving the huge existing Ethereum developer base without having to learn new programming languages. Its protocol incorporates an innovative “Directed AcyclicGraph (DAG)” technology that allows for virtually unlimited scalability and portability of decentralized applications (dAPPs) with low processing power requirements that allow anyone to run a validator node from even low-cost laptops and mobile phones.
