Ethereum Upgrade to Implement Beacon Chain Withdrawals Scheduled for Apr...

    During the Execution Layer Meeting streamed on March 16, 2023, Ethereum developers announced that the blockchain is scheduled to upgrade on April 12, in 27 days. The upgrade, known as the Shanghai-Capella upgrade or Shapella, will include the implementation of Beacon chain push withdrawals. This will enable Ethereum network validators to support withdrawal operations following the ruleset change.Ethereum Validator Withdrawal Operations and Fee Optimization Enhancements Set to Go Live in 27 Days At the time of writing, the Beacon chain contract holds 17,680,535 ether, worth $29.33 billion using today’s Ethereum exchange rates. The upcoming upgrade, called Shapella, will enable the Beacon chain to use push withdrawals as operations through Ethereum Improvement Proposal (EIP) 4895. According to the EIP-4895 documentation, this will 'support validator withdrawals from the Beacon chain to the EVM via a new 'system-level' operation type.' Additionally, the summary notes that EIP-4895's architecture is ''push'-based, rather than 'pull'-based, meaning withdrawals must be processed in the execution layer as soon as they are dequeued from the consensus layer.' The latest Ethereum upgrade was originally planned for this month, but the consensus change was postponed. During the Execution Layer Meeting on Thursday, Ethereum developers announced that the upgrade is now scheduled for April 12, 2023. In addition to the Beacon chain push withdrawals proposal, the upgrade will include t... read More

BTC Proxy Is Live on BNB Chain and Interoperable With WBTC and BTCB

    PRESS RELEASE. Leading DeFi protocol BTC PROXY today expanded support for the Binance BNB Chain as well as updating support on Ethereum and Polygon for their ($BTCpx) Bitcoin Proxy. Minting and bridging of BTCpx to the three networks goes live on or after March 10th, 2023. This fulfilled a vision of allowing the Proxy community to utilize their Bitcoin for use in DeFi on Polygon, Ethereum and BNB Chains. BTC Proxy's expansion to the three networks allows the Minting of BTCpx token using BTC Bitcoin, WBTC ERC20 and Polygon as well as BTCB BEP20. This is a major leap forward for the Bitcoin DeFi ecosystem as it opens up the protocol to 19.2M Bitcoins in circulation as well as 52,979 BTCb on Binance as well as 176,097 WBTC in circulation on Ethereum and Polygon. No other project offers the usage of insured custody to hold Bitcoin. BTC Proxy is suitable for full custody investment funds and holders that need the assurance of a qualified custodian. Qualified custodians reduce counterparty risk as the holdings are insured and regulated and required to segregate client funds and are not permitted to trade or leverage their holdings. This is a hot topic since the collapse of major centralized platforms like FTX and Celsius have eroded consumer trust in cryptocurrencies. BTC Proxy is integrated with leading custodians such as Binance Custody, Fireblocks and Gemini Trust. Users using BTCpx can now freely move it seamlessly from one network to another and redeem it for real BTC with the... read More

A16z Exerts Control Over Uniswap by Downvoting BNB Chain Deployment

    Crypto venture firm a16z has used its 15 million UNI token voting block to vote against a proposal that would use the Wormhole bridge for Uniswap V3 deployment on BNB Chain. According to the ongoing results of the proposal vote, a16z’s overwhelming token stash enabled it to control around half of the votes so far, pushing the decision its way.

80% Of Uniswap Holders Support BNB PoS Chain For Deploying V3 Protocol

    Uniswap (UNI), a decentralized protocol, is ready to roll out the third version of its platform. The protocol aims to provide a suitable platform where users can seamlessly swap ERC-20 tokens without using an order book. For the v3 launch, the protocol carried out a 'temperature test' for a possible blockchain to use. The proposal was for deploying Uniswap v3 on the Binance Smart Chain (BNB) instead of the Ethereum blockchain. The proposal got the UNI community voting on its government forum using their UNI tokens. Surprisingly, about 80% of the UNI holders supported the Uniswap v3 deployment on the BNB Chain, Ethereum's rival. Unfortunately, this left a smaller percentage of votes for the Ethereum blockchain, making it lose the temperature check proposal. We’re excited to share that our @0xPlasma proposal to deploy @Uniswap v3 on @BNBCHAIN has passed the "Temperature Check" with 20M votes "YES" and 6,495 $UNI voters (the biggest number for the whole Uniswap Governance History). Moving forward to the final "Governance Proposal" — 0xPlasma Labs: DeFi & NFT Metaverse (@0xPlasma) January 22, 2023 0xPlasma Labs, a decentralized finance protocol, contributes to the proposal. According to the post on Twitter, the firm noted that the 'Temperature Check' on the proposal got 20 million votes for 'YES.'

GMX Generates More Fees than BNB Smart Chain and Bitcoin

    GMX, the perpetual trading decentralized exchange (DEX) allowing up to 50X leverage, now generates more trading fees than the BNB Smart Chain (BSC) and Bitcoin. GMX Is The Third Most Active Platform According to statistics, GMX's 1-day fee on January 19 was around $589,000, while BSC and Bitcoin on-chain fees, over the same period, stood at $524,232 and $328,935, respectively.  Ethereum and Uniswap are the only two major protocols more active than the perpetual trading decentralized exchange, per the above data. During this time, the total Gas fees accrued in Ethereum exceeded $5 million. In Uniswap, it was over $2.1 million, roughly 4x GMX's and BSC's daily fees. GMX supports trading various coins, including BTC, ETH, and AVAX. As of writing, GMX had $96,802,651,673 in total trading volume with open interest, that is, the number of opened positions, long and short, of $207,102,720.

Polygon Announces Upcoming Hard Fork to Address Gas Spikes and Chain Reo...

    The Ethereum scaling blockchain, Polygon, has revealed plans to initiate a hard fork on Jan. 17, 2023. According to the team, the network upgrade will 'reduce the severity of gas spikes' and 'address chain reorganizations (reorgs) in an effort to reduce time to finality.'Polygon Team Outlines Network Upgrades to Improve User Experience On Jan. 12, 2023, the Polygon team told the community to 'get ready for the hard fork' as developers have plans to upgrade the chain on Jan. 17, 2023. 'The proposed hard fork for the Polygon PoS chain will make key upgrades to the network on Jan. 17,' the team tweeted. 'This is good news for developers and users and will make for better user experience (UX). You will not need to do anything differently,' the developers insisted. Polygon (MATIC) developers have been discussing the upgrade since Dec. 2022. The V0.3.1 Hard Fork aims to reduce gas spikes and address blockchain reorganizations (reorgs). A reorg is an occurrence in which a new chain's branch emerges and supersedes the previously accepted blockchain branch. Reorganizations can cause previously confirmed transactions to be invalidated and replaced with new ones. In order to alleviate the reorg problem, Polygon plans to decrease the network's sprint length from 64 to 16 blocks. 'Doing so will decrease the depth of reorgs,” Polygon developers declare. In order to reduce gas spikes, Polygon aims to change the 'basefeechangedenominator' from the current value of 8 to 16. 'This will ... read More

Binance Smart Chain User Activity Tanks, Why BNB Price Could Suffer

    BNB Price has been seeing a lot of declines since Binance came under fire for the audit published by Mazars. Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) had spread like wildfire, leading to more than $5 billion in withdrawals from the crypto exchange. Nevertheless, Binance was able to withstand the onslaught and amid all of this, activity on the Binance Smart Chain has fallen drastically, painting a bearish picture for the BNB price. Binance Chain Activity Drops By 15% Last week, there had been a lot of activity on the Binance Smart Chain which saw daily active addresses climb as high as 1.2 million at the start of the weekend. However, as the new week is ushered in, this metric has taken a swift beating and the number of daily active addresses has declined dramatically. Data from YCharts show that in the last 24 hours, Binance Smart Chain active addresses were down by more than 15.70%. This showed a complete reversal in the high usage recorded between Friday and Saturday when activity on the chain had surpassed all other blockchains. Currently, the number sits at 947,414 daily active addresses on the blockchain. So from Friday to now, active addresses are down by more than 150,000.  New unique addresses per day were also down during this time and are down by 15.27% in the 24-hour period. Likewise, transactions per day also took a beating, falling 15.27% during this time while transaction fees realized on the network declined by 10.86%. Interestingly, the daily active BEP-20 ad... read More

BNB Chain NFT Support Added to OpenSea

    OpenSea – the world’s largest NFT marketplace – is bringing NFTs based on BNB Chain to its platform.  The network’s collectibles will soon be available for listing and sale on OpenSea’s standard core marketplace.  OpenSea Meets BNB Chain Per a press release shared with CryptoPotato, OpenSea’s Seaport protocol will launch BNB Chain starting in Q4 2022. Benefits to BNB NFT creators will include real-time payouts, creator payouts, collections management, and other things.  “The integration will bring a large number of creators into the wider system, as well as empower the creators and NFT initiatives inside the BNB Chain ecosystem,” said BNB Chain Investment Director Gwendolyn Regina on the partnership.  BNB Chain is currently the largest smart contract blockchain in the world based on daily active users.

Major South African Supermarket Chain Accepts Bitcoin Payments (Report)

    One of the largest supermarket chains in South Africa - Pick n Pay - reportedly enabled customers to settle their bills in cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin. The offering covers 39 of the company's stores located across the country. The National Children's Advocacy Center also hopped on the bandwagon, allowing people to donate digital assets. The Latest to Catch the Wave Pick n Pay hinted about the new payment option months ago when it trialed it in ten of its stores.

    A single miner has managed to overtake a large portion of the Bitcoinsv (Bitcoin Satoshi's Vision) blockchain capturing more than 80% of the hashrate on October 17. Today, the unknown miner's hashpower commands around 54% of the Bitcoinsv's computational power and during the last seven days, the stealth miner captured 64.5%.Unknown Hashpower Captured 64% of the Bitcoinsv Chain During the Past 7 Days, Empty BSV Blocks Renders Chain Useless at Times Bitcoinsv (BSV) has been dealing with an unknown miner trolling the project by mining empty blocks, and capturing a great majority of hashpower. Statistics from Coin Dance indicate that the miner captured 80% of the hashrate between October 17 and 18, 2022. Interestingly, the unknown miner took over the blockchain's hashrate during the defamation trial between Craig Wright, the man who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, and the pseudonymous Bitcoiner Hodlonaut. Wright lost the lawsuit and Hodlonaut was acquitted of all claims related to the defamation case. The self-proclaimed Satoshi, otherwise known as Craig Wright, was also ordered to pay $348,257 to compensate Hodlonaut's court expenses. While the court case was not yet decided, the unknown miner ramped up its hashrate efforts a few days before the lawsuit ended. Instead of mining blocks with tens of thousands of transactions, the miner chose to mine near-empty blocks making the blockchain unusable for long periods of time. The BSV miner leverages the BSV address '1KPST' and to dat... read More

At the same time, its mainnet token APT was announced by major mainstream exchanges before it was in circulation. The cryptocurrency trading platform MEXC listed the Aptos mainnet token APT at 00:45 on October 19 (UTC). It is the world's first trading platform for Aptos. The Aptos team will build its new Layer 1 blockchain based on the original Libra whitepaper. However, unlike Libra, the project will focus not on cross-border payments but on smart contracts. Different from the current public chain such as Ethereum, Aptos inherits the underlying technical specifications of the Diem project, uses Move programming language and BFT consensus protocol, aiming to build a more scalable blockchain to meet the needs of billions of users and large enterprise customers, so as to carry out the storage and transaction of crypto assets in a convenient way. Aptos's development builds partly on technology that has been publicly developed at Diem over the past three years. The Move language is a brand-new development language focusing on the blockchain's security, scalability, and upgradeability. Earlier, Aptos stated in its medium that the original Diem team would try to restart the project in the form of Aptos, after Meta confirmed the sale of Diem-related assets. Currently, representatives of new public chains using the Move language include... read More

The Dacxi Chain Reviewed: Meet the Tokenized Crowdfunding Network Coming...

    Cryptocurrencies are no longer a niche product segmented in a distant industry popular only among cypherpunks and tech aficionados. They’ve become mainstream. Largely due to their explosion in prices during the 2021 bull run, Bitcoin famously topped $69,000, they’ve cemented their place in the world of fintech. However, now more than ever, the industry needs to prove its worth and separate investment opportunities from speculation. At a time when regulators turn their sights to crypto, the space needs clear-cut solutions that allow retail (and institutional) investors to clearly differentiate. Dacxi Chain brings forward the first-ever global tokenized crowdfunding ecosystem designed to do just that. It creates a global pool of investors and connects them with visionary business people who require funding to take their innovative products and services to the next level. The Dacxi Chain uses blockchain tokenization technology to create digital versions of company shares, making the process quick, seamless, cost-efficient, and – importantly – genuinely global. It’s powered by its own native cryptocurrency, Dacxi Coin. What Problems Does Crowdfunding Face Today? Crowdfunding was a strong concept with great promise. But it never reached the wild heights it aimed for. It was never eventuated as a legitimate way for investors to profit and entrepreneurs to gain funding. Largely, it was an issue of scale. The current crowdfunding system has lon... read More

The BNB Smart Chain Hard Fork Tomorrow: What You Need to Know

    The BNB Smart Chain will go through a hard fork tomorrow. The upgrade will take place at around 08:00 AM (UTC) at block height 22,107,423. The changes are aimed at mitigating the cross-chain infrastructure between the Beacon Chain and the Smar Chain in an attempt to re-enable the cross-chain back. What is the BNB Smart Chain Moran Hard Fork? According to a release on Github, the BNB Smart Chain will go through a hard fork tomorrow - October 12th. The upgrade is called Moran, and it represents a 'temporary urgent patch.' This release is a temporary urgent patch to mitigate the cross-chain infrastructure between Beacon Chain and Smart Chain so that the cross-chain can be re-enabled back. It is a hard fork release for both testnet and mainnet. The changes that Moran will bring to the network include a fix of the vulnerability in 'the iavl hash check,' intended to eventually migrate it to ICS23 specifications. Additionally, it will introduce a block header in the sequence check in the CrossChain Contract.  Last but not least, the hard fork will also make the relater whitelisted to the genesis candidates. The Github entry also specifies that there will be further Binance Chain Evolution Proposals (BEPs) on how to define the candidates for the relayer. What To Do? Regular users needn't do anything. However, node operators will have to take a few steps. First, they would have to download the binary contained in the Github entry. After that, they would have to stop the... read More

The Dacxi Chain Unveiled as the World's First Global Equity Crowdfunding...

    PRESS RELEASE. The world’s first blockchain-based global equity crowdfunding network – the Dacxi Chain – has been unveiled. The Dacxi Chain is a unique global ecosystem that creates digital tokenized versions of company shares, which can then be quickly and easily bought and sold all over the world. Connecting investors, entrepreneurs and deal makers from across the globe. A singularly complex technical challenge, the Dacxi Chain has taken the company’s tech team four years to develop. The advanced technical features within Dacxi Chain are built on the unique capabilities of blockchain. Dacxi CEO Ian Lowe says, “When we set out to create a global ecosystem to deliver thousands of funding deals to hundreds of thousands of investors around the world, there are many significant problems to solve. Emphatically, blockchain is the path to unlocking the limitless potential of equity crowdfunding.” The Dacxi Chain ecosystem must be equipped to deal with tokenized assets, cryptocurrency-based investments from multi-language and multi-currency investor pools, and a range of different regulatory environments. As such, the Dacxi Chain’s development has required the origination and development of a series of new technological processes. Fernando Pacheco, Dacxi Chain’s Chief Product Officer says, “The Dacxi Chain aggregates investor pools drawn from multiple territories around the world, and connects them to entrepreneurs who have via... read More

BNB Chain to Conduct Governance Votes on What to Do With the Stolen Fund...

    After losing millions of dollars worth of assets in a cross-chain hack, the team behind BNB Chain - formerly Binance Smart Chain (BSC) - plans to conduct on-chain governance votes to determine what to do with the stolen funds.  Recall that BNB Chain temporarily halted all network operations after an attacker exploited a vulnerability on the BSC Token Hub cross-chain bridge to siphon two million BNB valued at $600 million. BNB Chain Hacker Absconds With $100M  The hacker still had about $400 worth of assets on the network before the suspension, which made it impossible for them to transfer the funds to other chains.  According to reports, the attacker was able to exit with around $70 million to $80 million across several networks. However, cyber security firm Hackenclub said the perpetrator made away with $110 million through Fantom, Ethereum, and Polygon.  Shortly after resuming network operations, the BSC team announced plans to hold governance votes on four critical decisions relating to the hack, including bounties for future attacks.   The Way Forward In the coming days, an upgrade on the BNB Beacon Chain (BEP2) will allow the network validators to vote on what will be done with the stolen funds, whether they will be frozen or not, or “auto-burn” them.  The validators will vote on the launch of a white hat program that will reward hackers with $1 million for discovering a “significant bug.”  The on-chain vote will... read More

BNB HACK INU: How Someone Stole 60 ETH Following the BNB Chain Hack

    The past 24 hours were quite tumultuous, with one of the largest blockchain networks - BNB Chain - suffering a security breach that saw the millions worth of cryptocurrency being compromised. And while the process of freezing and recovering the stolen assets is ongoing and the network is back to its normal functioning, someone took the opportunity to pull off another scam. Enter the BNB HACK INU Token BNBHACKINU - a token created in a clear reference to both the recent BNB Chain hack and popular dog-themed memecoins - becomes the latest scam that perpetrators pulled off to steal crypto off of innocent people. Delivering the information was a Twitter user by the name of lorem who detailed how the entire thing went down. According to him, the hacker who was responsible for the BNB Chain exploit, created a token called BNBHACKERINU - just two hours after the initial exploit. Because of the way the smart contract was coded, he was able to mint an arbitrary number of tokens and add them to the owner's balance. After that, the perpetrator called three other functions that allow the owner to take the BNBHACKINU tokens out of any holder's wallet and transfer them to any other wallet. At this point, I knew this was definitely a rug waiting to happen. The owner was constantly calling these methods and each time the stolen tokens were sent to a brand new wallet with 0 ETH. I only went through a few of the transactions but of the fresh wallets I looked at, there were over 7 mil... read More

Multi-Million BNB Chain Hack and Bitcoin's Battle for $20K: This Week's ...

    In terms of overall market movements, not much was happening in the past seven days. The total capitalization remained somewhat flat, around $990 million, unable to recover above the coveted $1 trillion mark. Bitcoin's price, as well as that of the majority of altcoins, also failed to post a significant difference. At the time of this writing, Bitcoin's price trades at around $19,700 - more or less where it was this time last week. The volatility is currently gone from the cryptocurrency market, and Bitcoin is no exception. The bulls attempted to rally above $20,000 and even managed to keep the price above this level for a couple of days, reaching a weekly high at just shy of $20,500 (on Binance). Unfortunately, today, the price tumbled below $20K when the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics posted information about the jobs added through September. The number exceeded expectations, and market participants perceived it as a sign that the current measures to curb inflation and encourage spending are insufficient, hence pushing the price down. Much like BTC, ETH is also charting a 0.2% increase over the past seven days, indicating a flat trend of rangebound trading. Most of the altcoins followed suit. The most exciting thing, albeit in the bad sense of the word, was yesterday's hack of the BNB Chain. Someone managed to exploit a security vulnerability in the BNB Bridge and siphoned at least $100 million worth of cryptocurrency. Developers were quick to react and froze some... read More

Here's How the Multi-Million BNB Chain Hack Went Down: Paradigm Research...

    The BNB Chain was temporarily paused after an exploit on its cross-chain bridge. The current impact estimate is around $100 million and $110 million equivalent of cryptocurrency. According to the latest update, the BNB Chain has resumed working as usual, but let's have a look at how the hack went down, according to a popular researcher. The Exploit Paradigm Researcher Sam Sun stated that the attacker somehow convinced the Binance Bridge to send out 1 million BNB to an address they controlled. They repeated the step twice. After comparing the attacker's transactions with legitimate withdrawals, Sun noticed that the height used by the attacker was always the same - 110217401. However, the heights used by legitimate withdrawals were much bigger, such as 270822321, the researcher pointed out. He further noted that the attacker's proof was notably shorter than the legitimate withdrawal's proof, meaning that they had found a way to 'forge a proof' for that specific block - 110217401. Binance has a special precompile contract that is used to verify IAVL trees. When a user verifies an IAVL tree, they need to specify a list of 'operations.' The Binance Bridge typically expects two of them: an 'iavl:v' operation, and a 'multistore' operation, Sun specified. The attacker managed to exploit the bug in the Binance Bridge that verified proofs allowing attackers to forge arbitrary messages., While the attacker only forged two messages, the researcher claimed that the damage could have been ... read More
