Клиенты Ethereum, не совершившие апгрейды для устранения известных уязвимостей, несут угрозу всей сети. Об этом говорится в новом исследовании базирующейся в Берлине Security Research Labs.
Blockchain technology assumes that participants take rational actions. Leaving yourself and others exposed to hacking is not rational, but all too common among blockchain users: https://t.
Ethereum clients that still haven’t patched known vulnerabilities pose a security risk to the entire network, according to new research.
A report from Security Research Labs that used ethernodes.org data, indicates that a large number of nodes using the most popular clients Parity and Geth have been left exposed for “extended periods of time” after patches for security flaws have been released.
Even though Bitcoin is leading the current rally, Ethereum has been on an even bigger run up as the cryptocurrency is up almost 20% in the past 24 hours alone breaking through the $250 level and now aiming for $300. With the rise in IEOs it’s only natural to see ETH increase in price similar to how the cryptocurrency exploded back in 2018 with the help of the ICO hype.
Essentially all cryptocurrencies are currently in a major bull rally, most seeing double digit percent gains.
Meme Factory, a blockchain-based marketplace for digital collectibles, goes live today.
Meme Factory is built on ethereum and allows users to create, issue and trade “provably rare” digital collectibles, according to an announcement.
The platform was created by blockchain startup District0x Network, which raised $9 million via an initial coin offering in August 2017.
A third of all ether, ethereum’s native cryptocurrency, is owned by just 376 whales as of May 1, new research indicates.
Blockchain analysis startup Chainalysis published a study on Wednesday, indicating that, while these 376 individuals control 33 percent of the circulating supply in 2019, that number is actually down from levels seen in 2016 and 2017.
Alternative cryptocurrencies are flying high while bitcoin is having a breather above $8,000.
Notably, ether (ETH) has hit a seven-month high of $235 and looks set to extend gains further toward $256 (Sept. 22 high) in the near-term. XRP, meanwhile, has confirmed a bull breakout.
With hourly chart indicators diverging in favor of the bears and the daily relative strength index (RSI) reporting overbought conditions, bitcoin is looking increasingly vulnerable to a price pullback to the key rising trendline, currently placed above $7,200.
Public blockchain platform provider ThunderCore has just released proof-of-concept code for a new consensus protocol, dubbed Pala, on GitHub.
According to Elaine Shi, chief scientist for ThunderCore, the work represents “a dream consensus protocol.”
As stated on the newly released GitHub page:
“Pala is a byzantine fault tolerant consensus protocol…It can achieve low latency and high throughput in a partially synchronous network setting.
One of the world’s largest electrical companies is teaming up with ethereum app iExec on a new test.
EDF, the fifth largest electrical utility company with a $33 billion market cap, has launched its visual simulator software GPUSPH on iExec, a decentralized application that operates on ethereum mainnet. With this, EDF can test how the program operates on a blockchain rather than a more normal computing environment.
Specifically, the simulator explores a field called “smoothed particle hydrodynamics” for modeling fluids.
Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA), the standards body seeking a common approach for businesses using ethereum’s code, has released a third version of its client specification, as well as updates on privacy and performance.
Announced Monday at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2019 conference, EEA released its Enterprise Ethereum Client Specification V3, which simplifies permissioning systems, inherent to enterprise blockchains and a range of other recommendations.
GE Aviation, which supplies jet engines to about 60% of the global airline industry, has built a supply chain track and trace blockchain with the help of Microsoft Azure.
GE Aviation Digital Group aims to share the blockchain, a self-built derivative of ethereum, across an industry-wide consortium of partners.
Taylor Monahan, the CEO of crypto wallet startup MyCrypto, has been moderator for the ethereum subreddit channel since 2016.
That year, the ethereum Reddit channel was just breaking over the 10,000 subscribers mark, according to SubRedditStats. Today, the same channel boasts over 400,000 subscribers and is ranked within the top 600 most popular channels on Reddit.
However, what may have started as a relatively low-commitment and low-visibility responsibility became a flash point of controversy in the ethereum community (though tensions have died down in recent days).
The Ethereum Foundation plans to spend $30 million on ecosystem development over the next 12 months.
The foundation’s executive director, Aya Miyaguchi, announced the plan at the ConsenSys-organized Ethereal Summit in Brooklyn on Friday. Over the past year, the foundation spent roughly $27 million on its grants program, which supports critical projects across the ethereum ecosystem.
Speaking to the criteria the Ethereum Foundation upholds when deciding grant winners, Miyaguchi highlighted four areas of interest:
How important is the problem the team is working on?
How unique is the solution?
Will the grant produce second-order effects?
How urgent is the problem?
Last year’s grants were awarded in five waves, with the first wave in March 2018 doling out roughly $2.
Основатели Ethereum Джозеф Любин и Виталик Бутерин, а также представляемые ими компании – ConsenSys и Ethereum Foundation соответственно – осуществили финансовую поддержку децентрализованной автономной организации Moloch. Об этом стало известно в ходе стартовавшего в Нью-Йорке Ethereal Summit в пятницу, 10 мая.
Любин и Бутерин поддержали ДАО Moloch на 1000 ETH каждый, дополнительно по 1000 ETH пожертвовали ConsenSys и Ethereum Foundation.
Ethereum’s true believers think the world’s second-largest blockchain can still be all-encompassing. Others think a more-focused path would be best.
That was the tension on display at Day 1 of the ConsenSys-organized Ethereal Summit NY, a Blockchain Week gathering held at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn on Friday.
“Ethereum’s going to eat everything,” Ameen Soleimani, SpankChain founder and summoner of the MolochDAO, said during one panel.
The Federal Reserve of Boston is starting a new blockchain experiment this summer.
The Massachusetts state regulator has been one of the earliest and most involved government bodies to dip their toe into the new technology. It has been quietly developing blockchain systems since 2016 but has said very little about their plans.
Now the first results of those trials are out and the Boston Fed published a white paper on its proof-of-concepts on ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric.
An ethereum funding initiative from the CEO of SpankChain is getting a major boost from two of the blockchain’s biggest names.
Ameen Soleimani’s MolochDAO announced a donation of 1,000 ETH each from Joseph Lubin and Vitalik Buterin, plus 2,000 ETH more from a group of individuals at ConsenSys and the Ethereum Foundation.
“Moloch is a very innovative structure and I expect it to take off and be a significant factor in helping drive development throughout the ethereum ecosystem,” Lubin, the founder of ConsenSys, told CoinDesk at the venture studio’s Ethereal conference in Brooklyn on Friday.
HoneyMiner, a desktop-based crypto mining application, has released a new version for MacOS users.
HoneyMiner, which launched in July 2018, accesses your CPU or GPU and uses it to mine various cryptos.
An ethereum protocol for programmatic lending, MakerDAO emerged as a clear market leader in part for its rock-bottom interest rates of 0.5 percent.
But the code behind MakerDAO requires interest rates to do more than extract business from borrowers, it’s a technological necessity for keeping its DAI stablecoin worth $1.
With interest rates rising to 19.5 percent, and DAI still worth below $1, some early borrowers are angry, feeling as though they were misled.

Ethereum is up over 6% in the past 24 hours as the market momentum intensifies. After trading in the $160 level the past week, the price jumped over $16 looking for new support in the $170 range.
One speculation as to the cause of the recent bullish momentum for Ethereum, is Elon Musk’s mysterious tweet that simply spelled “Ethereum”
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019
The recent Ethereum price rise comes amid a crypto bull market which pushed the overall cryptocurrency market over $10 billion in valuation since the beginning of the month.
