Coin Sheet - August 15, 2017


"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."



As High As It Will Go?

Bitcoin has reached another all time high, hitting a little over of $4,400 on GDAX (Did you know GDAX is an abbreviation for "Global Digital Asset Exchange?" You do now.).

Is this it? Have the good news run out? Do we not care about Segwit anyone? Hardfork, what hardfork? Is this me writing FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt)? Find out next time on  ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶x̶t̶ ̶e̶p̶i̶s̶o̶d̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶D̶r̶a̶g̶o̶n̶ ̶B̶a̶l̶l̶ ̶Z̶ tomorrows CoinSheet. Actually I'll just tell you now, I think Bitcoin has peaked.

Brought To You By, Ethereum FOMO

There have been some discussions on reddit about Ethereum's next protocol upgrade, dubbed "Metropolis." The point made was that Ethereum rose 430% in the 35 days leading up to the last protocol upgrade (and current version, Homestead). Who cares? Well...we're about 40 days from the potential September 24th Metropolis release date. You care now don't cha.

There was a interesting TL:DR for "zero knowledge transactions (zk-SNARKS)," an anticipated feature bundled in the Metropolis upgrade. This feature allows nodes, miners, and stakers to verify transactions without having any knowledge about these transactions. As a reddit user explained "it means you can prove you have something without having to actually show that you have it. Here's how I explain it. I give you an apple for $100, and you can prove that you actually have the apple without having to show everyone the apple."

That's all the Ethereum shilling you'll get from me today.
