The rise of ETH raises expectations in the GOETH community

Ethereum, as of now, is the second-largest digital asset and the first permissionless international economy. Ethereum is slowly revolutionizing the global financial system. In 2020, Eth reported a rise in its price by over 70%.  2021 has kicked off at a high notch for ETH, with its price hitting $976.89 as of Jan 4.

Factors contributing to the rise of Ethereum

  • Speculation 

Ethereum owes its surge of prices to speculations from the crypto market. GOETH community is predicting a rise in the cost of Eth in this decade. Ethereum will rise even more when the speculators invest in the product.

  • Staking

Staking is the new use of Eth. Staking is the process of locking up Ethereum tokens for some time. The yields on staking on Eth is currently at 20%. What’s more, is that staking on Ethereum allows for a pool of staking for small investors. The pool of staking favors the GOETH community at large as every investor has a say. Investors in the GOETH community can stake directly or through a third party.

  • Elimination of mining

Ethereum staking will bring mining to an end. During the initial period of introduction of staking, it will co-exist with mining but will eventually be eliminated in the long run. Mining is mainly used in Bitcoin, and in Ethereum, the reward to miners is new Ethers. These rewards are about 3.6% of Esther’s total supply yearly. The elimination of mining will lower the new pool. Expectations are such that when mining is censored, there will be a program to reduce transaction charges to counterbalance staking rewards and make total issuance of Ethereum negative, thus reducing supply. This will positively favor the GOETH community as they will not need any middlemen, miners.

  • Gas fees

One of the uses of Ether is to settle gas fees on the network.  The year 2019 saw a good number of Eth being used to pay gas fees of about $9.5k daily. GOETH community can bet on an increase in a total gas payment following the launch of ETH 2.0. This will compel corporations to buy Ether to use the gas on the network.

  • Collateral for applications

 Ether is used as security for programs in Ethereum to ensure that they function efficiently. For instance, Ether is used as collateral for DAI, a stable coin that tracks the dollar created by MakerDAO. The GOETH community need not worry about the price drop of Ether as DAI remains unchanged. MakerDAO contributes to the scarcity of Ether when they have many users to purchase Ether.

TrueUSD Names Five Banks Holding the Stablecoin’s USD Reserve

1. TUSD is currently in collaboration with five banks.
2. Partner banks provide a safeguard for TUSD’s asset security.
3. TUSD is now audited by auditing firm Armanino.

Stablecoin TrueUSD (TUSD) named five of its current bank collaborators that ensure asset security for its USD reserves.

According to TUSD, it currently works with Signature Bank, Silvergate Bank, Prime Trust, First Digital Trust, and BitGo for the safekeeping of USD assets that back the value of the stablecoin.

For one, Signature Bank is the first bank insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to launch a blockchain-based digital payments platform—Signet.

TUSD partnered with Signature Bank, a New York-based commercial firm, and was then integrated into Signet, Signature’s payment network, opening 24/7 minting services within two minutes. TUSD admitted that this development “greatly” improved its financial services for its users. Interestingly, TUSD transactions within Signet are free.

Another TUSD partner bank from 2021 is Silvergate. This financial firm became one of the first banks to set up accounts for crypto transactions and has since become known as one of the few crypto-friendly banks.

TUSD leverages the Silvergate Exchange Network (SEN), providing users with another “efficient” token minting service.

Together with SEN, TUSD reinforces its near-instant minting and redemption services with Prime Trust’s PrimeX. PrimeX enables TUSD holders to mint and redeem tokens round the clock, offering instant settlements.

Users of the stablecoin can also mint and redeem their tokens with TUSD partner First Digital Trust. Although the bank implements minimum and maximum transactions, TUSD saw this as an opportunity to provide its users with options, especially if they plan on minting or redeeming small amounts of TUSD.

TUSD is also one of the early stablecoins that crypto custodian BitGo included in its offerings. BitGo’s secure multi-signature wallets allow TUSD users to purchase the stablecoin within the wallet. 

With BitGo, users can purchase and exchange TUSD with no fee. However, a minimum amount of $1,000 worth of TUSD is required to mint and redeem.

TUSD revealed that it is exploring more ways to better its services for its users. To do so, it plans to forge relationships with more bank partners.Earlier, TUSD was reported to now be audited by Armanino, a top European auditing firm. Armanino will attest to the stability of TUSD’s smart contracts on-chain. TUSD, in turn, becomes the only stablecoin that has implemented such security standards.

Winning Projects are In as TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 Season 1 Comes to a Close

The winning projects are finally in as TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 closed on March 14, coming off of a thriving victory. We’ve been tracking the winning projects closely on the TRON DAO Forum on all four tracks, Web3, NFT, GameFi, and DeFi. 

The Forum has been an influential site for developers to come together, share ideas, create threads, and interact with each other about the crypto community, and activity on the Forum accounted for 40% of the overall score. 

Each track’s final review panel consisted of crypto experts, KOLs, and a public community review board, whose scores accounted for 30%, 30%, and 40%, respectively. Community reviewers transparently voted on the TRON DAO Forum.

The crypto community was earnest to see the results of the judging period, which began on March 8 and ended on March 11.

Here are the winning picks in each of the four tracks:

In the GameFi Track, the winner is TronNinja Arcade by the TronNinja Team.

TronNinja is a NFT GameFi project on the TRON blockchain where you will be able to use your NFTs as characters in-game while earning our in-game token TronNinjas Token (TNT) in the TronNinjas Arcade. Their goal is not only to play games but bring back the social aspect that arcades had.

In the Web3 track, the winner is dCloud by Cctechmx.

Their mission is to create an Open Source Web3 Cloud storage mobile app enabling its own ecosystem to enjoy a self-sustainable and shared economy. By separating dCloud code like this, we’ll be able to reduce the developing effort. BitTorrent team delivers the binaries, dCloud team devs focus on implementing them to the specific OS environment and coding a single Graphical Interface for both major mobile platforms: Android and iOS.

“Wow, what a piece of application! There is nothing like supporting decentralization hand in hand with cryptocurrencies. Better yet, still supporting it in TRON and BTTC blockchain technology. I will be waiting to be able to use it in our daily lives!” Said a commentator.

For the NFT track, the winner is VersacBrickSquad by TuruGlobal.

Their goal is to make real estate investment available for all since most people don’t have sufficient funds to buy their own real estate. The Versac Brick Squad is a collection of DAOs investing in real estate assets jointly managing the assets in a platform structure provided by TuruGlobal and with that making Real Estate investment accessible for the people.

“This is something we really need in this space. Community power should not be underestimated. The DAOs are the perfect tool to make the most out of all the smart people out there. Thanks for the explanation,” another commentator said.

As for the DeFi track, the winner is JustMoney Exchange by JustMoney.

They aim to build an ecosystem for the next generation of decentralized applications to power Web3 by allowing crypto users to trade and offer cryptocurrencies on several chains and facilitate the creation of a payment system that will allow crypto users to purchase goods and services online using cryptocurrency.

“New features that truly come in handy for newcomers. You don’t have to risk any money due to failed transactions on JustMoney Exchange. It’s the little things that matter, and the team ensures it does its best to cover any issues,” a commentator said.

The decentralized community is pleased with the project winners and can’t wait to see what’s to come for Season 2. Registration begins May 16, 2022.
