The Ethereum celebrates 6 years since its start. It is home to some of the most significant trends within cryptocurrency now. The platform hosts decentralized finance (DeFi) as well as non-exchange tokens (NGTs). It is currently moving from the Proof-of-Work (PoW) consensus mechanism to the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) migration process.
Vitalik made the announcement about Ethereum on January 27, 2014. This was the second day at the North American Bitcoin Conference.
Vitalik mentioned that one of the best uses for Ethereum is to make crypto assets for specific purposes.
Let’s not have a currency. Let’s have thousands of currencies.
ETH is now the second most valuable crypto currency in terms of market capital and is used by many other protocols. The first version of Ethereum was called Frontier when it was launched.
Ethereum has grown to be an incredible platform. It even underwent a hard fork, gaining a market capital of $278 billion. This is second only to Bitcoin.
Ethereum celebrates the last birthday of ETH 1.0
This year will mark the end of Ethereum 1.0. It will be replaced by 2.0 in early 2022. The upgrade is necessary as the network struggles to keep pace with the success.
Ethereum’s transaction processing has increased from a few thousand to more than 1.2 Billion. Anthon Sassiano, the founder of EthHub, says that the network has already generated trillions of dollars .
Ethereum maintained a larger share of users, and its price was high. Its $2400 value is six times higher than last year. The proof of stake Etheruem 2.0 will allow it to build on its history without erasing it.
