Price Action: Given the price action of altcoins is often correlated to the price of Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC), it’s no surprise the broader altcoin market has been selling off of late in sympathy with the apex-cryptocurrency.

Original meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin is lower by 2.75% at $0.084 at the time of publication.

Ethereum-blockchain-based Shiba Inu is also sharply lower by 1.1% at $0.00001166 over the past 24 hours.

Looking at PoW Mining Prospects from LUNA’s Plunge

Looking at PoW Mining Prospects from LUNA’s Plunge

Terra is crashing.

Terra is a Korean-created smart contract blockchain similar to Ethereum, Terra blockchain mainnet was released in 2019, uses LUNA as its native cryptocurrency, and allows the creation and deployment of smart contracts on its blockchain, and the consensus mechanism is PoS.a

Recently, the thing that caused an uproar in the cryptocurrency circle is that the LUNA coin has plummeted. As of May 16, the price has fallen to $0.0001972, which is close to 0. On April 5, 1 LUNA coin was still worth $119.18, which has shrunk by more than 600,000 times in more than a month.

Terra relies on the derivation of PoS to achieve consensus, rather than hardware and electricity like Bitcoin’s Proof of Work (PoW), so coin ownership equals power. Since the price of LUNA is almost free, making governance attacks less expensive, attackers can get enough LUNA tokens cheaply and perform a social attack on the network by forcing a majority vote.

This is another important difference between a network like Terra and Bitcoin and Ethereum Classic: in the former, a small number of entities can vote on things like stopping the…

It’s all decentralized until someone gets rekt

Many blockchains and digital currencies assert to be “decentralized,” meaning without any one group or entity that can control it. However, its short history has proven this to be demonstrably false, as several incidents have occurred in the past six years proving so.

The DAO hack

In 2016, a so-called decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) holding nearly 15% of circulating Ether was hacked. After much debate, Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin essentially rolled back the blockchain, undoing the hack, bailing himself and his cronies out akin to how the banks were bailed out as a consequence of the 2008 financial crises. No judge, jury or court was involved, the leaders just reversed the transaction, returning the funds to themselves. The split was so contentious that the permanent result was two blockchains, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, the latter which persisted the hack in the ledger.

How is this decentralized finance?

Less than one year after the Ethereum network went live, the founders already engage in the same practices the government and central banks did that were a factor in spurning Bitcoin in the first place.

Robinhood to launch a Web3 wallet, LimeWire inks deal with Universal and more

Popular trading platform Robinhood is creating a noncustodial crypto wallet that will be compatible with multiple blockchains.

The wallet will be a standalone application with the ability to store nonfungible tokens (NFTs) and connect to NFT marketplaces. A promo video released for the wallet shows a demonstration using Ethereum-based NFTs.

The app is a significant step for the company in providing crypto services. Prior to January 2022, trading crypto on Robinhood was a closed system with users unable to withdraw cryptocurrency.

On Jan. 21, Robinhood opened up crypto withdrawals to 1,000 users, allowing them to send crypto off the platform. That number was later expanded in April to the more than 2 million users on a waitlist.

Currently, the wallet is limited by an identity verification process and only supports seven assets: Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin SV (BSV), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ether (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC) and Litecoin (LTC).
