10 Reasons why Ethereum price is never going to rise again

Published

on

Ethereum itself is falling behind in what it can offer its users. Since it is an ‘abandoning ship’ it is unlikely that the prices will upward movement.

Predictions of the end of ETH are gaining momentum. Apparently, such forecasts are stoked by the founder of the Ethereum himself, via latest admissions that the platform needs deep changes and without these new adaptations (say Casper or Plasma) the end could not be very far.  

Ethereum’s utility thus far has been its smart contracts. At a time when Bitcoin was the only thing around, the ‘smart’ technology of the new network caught everyone’s fancy. However, today this very ‘technology’ has seen vast advancements, and Ethereum itself is falling behind in what it can offer its users. Since it is an ‘abandoning ship’ it is unlikely that the prices will see any sort of upward movement.

 

The tirade against things at Ethereum is:  

1. Much of the initial phase of growth was due to “occult marketing.”  

 

2. The approach of the original devs is abandoned and many “trusts at governance level of ETH.”

 

3. Non-ethereum changes are introduced under the brand ship of ‘centralized’ trademark Consensus Systems Corporation.

 

4. Ethereum Futures shall not be in the same category as Bitcoin Futures because of the lack of sustainability on the Ethereum network. New assets which are pegged to Ethereum will also not be able to perform. Thus Futures cannot be an alternative plan to nurture the platform and revive it.

 

5. ERC20 power cryptocurrency token is a big challenge as users need to pay ‘gas prices’ and not use part of the transaction itself to pay the ‘trading’ fees.

 

6. ETH failed to scale

 

7. Forgot to secure contract authoring

 

8. Failed to be competitive

 

9. Public blockchain platforms have taken over from stable crypto assets which want to remain private. Hence, Ethereum is limited in what it can offer in the near future.

 

10. Proof-of-Stake is a dicey methodology over Proof-of-work which is common in bitcoin

 

While the above are some of the reasons which are driving the final nails into ETH obvious demise, there are several macro-level questions to the evolution of this ‘smart contract’ platform.

 

The Future

ETH issues are complicated – from software support issues to market pricing and non-token contracts and Point of Sales Ethereum, it currently is able to hold its own among the competition.

It is the future of ETH and it prices which are the question.

ETH inefficiencies dominate and is preventing mass adoption, despite the popularity of ETH.

The biggest crippling impact on Ethereum thus far has been the high attrition rates of decentralized applications or dApps.

Nearly all of the evolving and performing applications are moving to the EOS platform. These include the Tixico, Was, Insights Network and Medipedia. The EOS platform it appears is offering them a solution to the bottlenecks they face on Ethereum. The key factors which had seen rapid growth were – the blockchain’s own transaction speeds, but its biggest obstacle has been its inability to have a plan for sustainable growth. Eos platform allows blocks to be developed under 0.5 seconds, and also supports expansion up to millions of transactions.

Token Taxonomy Initiative: Enterprise Ethereum Alliance & Microsoft

Published

on

Token Taxonomy Initiative built as a technology-neutral initiative will operate across different blockchains currently having Ethereum, Hyperledger & Corda.

The Enterprise Ethereum alliance and Microsoft have brought together the major enterprise blockchain providers behind a new project aimed at helping businesses develop the proper crypto tokens for their particular needs.

 

Token Taxonomy Initiative

It is being called the Token Taxonomy Initiative and is being built as a technology-neutral initiative which will operate across different blockchains currently having Ethereum, Hyperledger, and Corda, the biggest enterprise blockchain solutions and this initiative already include large partners IBM, ING, JP Morgan, Intel, and Microsoft, all with the aim of creating token standards for business users across all network.

 

The process for the development of enterprises which is basically going to be as simple as a drag and drop approach. This initiative is a big leap for particularly in terms of actually kicking open the doors for enterprises to enter the space and say that it is quite easy to use this technology.

Analysis: Will Ethereum Rise in 2019?

Published

on

There is a great possibility that the price of Ethereum might never rise again, At least not to the figures it earlier achieved.

Bitcoin and Ethereum have been leading the cryptocurrency market for quite some time. While bitcoin blockchain’s main motive is to track the transactions, Ethereum’s main motive is to run the codes of DEX or decentralized apps.

While most people feel that bitcoin will always lead the cryptocurrency market, some believe the cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum might overtake bitcoin in the future. Currently, a group of companies known as Enterprise Ethereum Alliance supports the Ethereum blockchain who are working hard to improve the overall functionality of the blockchain.

 

Can Ethereum rise in 2019?

While Bitcoin is a store of value and most people use bitcoin as a form of investment, Ethereum is mostly used by software companies for development of their own dapps.

Ethereum saw a tremendous rise in price as well as in market capitalization during the ICO era which might have ended last year. In 2017, there was a boom in the overall ICO market and most Initial Coin Offerings collected their investments in the form of Ethereum. This had led to a massive demand for ETH as investors had to purchase ETH first in order to invest in other initial coin offerings.

The price of Ethereum reached more than $1400 at the start of 2018 and people started to feel that Ethereum might even overtake bitcoin soon. However, as months passed in the year 2018, both the price and the market capitalization of ETH experienced a massive mall which might be related to the end of ICO era. Cryptocurrency analysts also believe that the massive selling of Ethereum by Initial Coin Offerings who had been storing them as investments was the main reason for the fall in the price of ETH. Thousands of ICOs started selling their ETH holdings when they saw a bear market coming upfront.

 

Why ETH might never rise again:

There is a great possibility that the price of Ethereum might never rise again, At least not to the figures it earlier achieved. One of the reasons for this is the rising popularity of other blockchain platforms such as TRON who are direct competitors to ETH and some are even performing a lot better than Ethereum. The overall development of ETH blockchain seems to be quite slow and thus people have started to adopt other blockchains which are more suitable for their products and perform better than the Ethereum blockchain.

 

Another big reason why Ethereum might not rise again is the end of the ICO era. The number of initial coin offerings has seen a tremendous decrease last year and even lower this year. Also, the interest of investors has shifted from Initial Coin Offerings now as they do not see a safe and profitable future in investing in ICOs. As one of the major reasons for the rise of ETH was the ICO market and now with the end of the ICO era, Ethereum might never see those robust bulls again.

Ethereum is not a Security: SEC Chairman confirms Commission Staff Analysis

Published

on

Jay Clayton, the Chairman of the SEC and an American attorney gave confirmation on the Commission Staff’s Analysis that said that cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum are not securities.

 

Ethereum like tokens are not securities:

The SEC chairman has responded to a letter signed which was signed by Tedd Budd and several other colleagues after asking that whether the policy that would put forward last year by William Hinman, the director of the Divison of Corporate Finance should be regarded as the policy of the SEC or just a judgment of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s staff.

Jay Clayton responded to the letter by stating that he agrees to the statements of William Hinman that was made during the June 2018 speech that concern the digital tokens or cryptocurrencies. He said that he agrees that if a digital token is offered as security is not fixed (static). It might be offered first as security as it might meet the definition of an instrument contract, however, the position might change over time if the digital token is offered in a manner that does not represent that definition anymore. He agreed with William Hinman’s clarification about how the digital token might not represent the definition of an instrument contract.
