Major Headlines


IBM Blockchain Work Expands To Identity is now working with IBM to further develop their app “#My31.” The name comes from the idea that "self-sovereign identity" should be the 31st right added to the list dictated by the United Nations. technology designed to give individuals greater control over their personal data. The app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices, focusing on an individual’s legal ownership of their general citizenship and any associated data.

Ethereum Decides On 33% Block Reward Reduction

The network of Ethereum developers, investors and general users have been involved in the debate over three major topics: the difficulty bomb, ETH issuance and ASIC resistance. Today they announced consensus on a block reward reduction of 33%. This means that miners are less incentivized to run mining for the network, however the ultimate result is deflation of the ETH cryptocurrency and eventual rise in price. A similar instance occurred when the Bitcoin reward was halved from 25 BTC to 12.5 BTC. The price rose sharply following the change. This change also gives the network more time to develop a solution to whether or not, and how, the network will change from a Proof-of-Work mechanism to a Proof-of-Stake system.


Bitcoin and Emerging Markets Correlation

Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Tom Lee spoke on CNBC recently, explaining that a similar rise and fall of crypto and emerging markets suggest that investors aren’t engaging with these areas at this time. However, he presses that this could all change if and when the dollar weakens and the Federal Reserve’s interest rate policy slows down. “Both really essentially peaked early this year, and they both have been in a downward trend. Until emerging markets begin to turn, I think in some ways that correlation is going to hold and tell us that sort of the risk on mentality is those buyers aren’t buying Bitcoin.” - Tom Lee
