|Vitalik Buterin Reflects on Web3's Diminishing Vision Amidst Rising Tran...
In a candid evaluation of the current state of Web3, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin laments the fading vision of a decentralized internet. Buterin emphasizes the stifling effect of rising crypto transaction fees on innovation and broad-based usage of cryptocurrency. He points out the shift towards centralized solutions and the dominance of high-stake players, expressing concern over the changing landscape and culture within the crypto community.From Decentralization to 'Degen' Domination: Buterin Reflects on Web3's Path
Vitalik Buterin, the influential co-founder of Ethereum, has recently voiced concerns over the evolving dynamics of the Web3 environment. According to Buterin, the dream of a decentralized internet is being overshadowed by the harsh reality of escalating transaction fees on blockchain networks. These fees are creating a barrier to entry, inhibiting innovations and the widespread adoption of crypto as a means of transaction and saving.
The number one culprit that I would blame as the root cause of this shift is the rise in transaction fees.
Highlighting a significant shift in the crypto narrative, Buterin notes that 'few talk about consumer crypto payments' anymore. The original vision of crypto assets as a democratizing financial force seems to be dwindling, with practical, everyday use cases becoming more theory than practice. Instead, a reliance on centralized platforms is growing, as they offer more stable and affordable avenues for users...

|Unlock the Future with Toncoin and Bitcoin Spark's United Vision
Cryptocurrencies have the potential to evolve as mainstream financial assets and grow in the future with advancing technology and widespread adoption.
These digital assets are a gateway to decentralization in finance, with its main objective being to disseminate power from financial institutions such as banks to the people. Projects like Bitcoin Spark and Toncoin address key metrics that no other project finds the solution to.
What is Toncoin?
Telegram, a popular messaging application for communities, commenced its web3 project in 2021, which involved a digital platform known as Gram. Gram launched on Telegram’s developed network called Telegram Open Network (TON), hence dubbed Toncoin. The TON also has a wallet provision that provides a secure platform for commission-free crypto asset transfers from one telegram user to another. TON network is a proof of stake platform linked to a high transaction speed of 55,000 transactions per second.
What is Bitcoin Spark?

[PRESS RELEASE - London, United Kingdom, September 29th, 2023]
Having already raised $500K in less than 48 hours, Memeinator has already stormed through to stage 3 of its presale, on its relentless mission to redefine the meme coin sector.
The project’s grand vision was born from the frustration of seeing relentless false promises and overhyped coins, that were endless parodies of each other replete with nonsensical messaging. These have made investors forget much of the fun and magic that once existed in the meme coin space.
With its groundbreaking AI-driven game, blossoming community, and out-of-this-world prize offerings like a trip to space with Virgin Galactic, there’s never been a meme coin like it.
Drawing on a certain timeless '90s action movie, Memeinator is here to right these wrongs. This revolutionary project is building a solid and dynamic community of meme coin fans from the ground up. A community who shares in its vision and are ready to bring trust back into meme coins.
The Memeinator 'resistance' is already off to a flying start with over 20,000 people having already joined on Twitter to follow the launch and vibrant discussions ongoing in both the Telegram and Discord communities.
To ensure the project’s credibility and security, Memeinator has been audited by Solid Proof. Solid Proof has been auditing new blockchain projects since 2020. Based in Germany - the auditor focuses on assessing project protocols, reliability, smart contracts and ...
|Chainlink: Analyst's Vision Of A 20% Rally And How It Could Happen
Chainlink (LINK) has caught the attention of crypto analyst Rekt Capital, who has offered an optimistic outlook for LINK. In a new price prediction, he suggested that the decentralized oracle network is on the verge of a significant recovery.
Rekt Capital, a prominent figure in the crypto community, took to the social media platform X to share insights on Chainlink's recent performance. According to the analyst, LINK has shown resilience by respecting its range-high resistance, a crucial milestone following its notable surge in price back in July. This achievement has ignited hopes of a sustained upward trajectory.
Despite its promising trajectory, LINK has experienced some fluctuations in recent weeks. The cryptocurrency dropped to a recent low of $5.76, a level that Rekt Capital points out as being close to the asset's range-low support.
However, Chainlink seems to be regaining its footing, with its current price sitting at $6.81 according to CoinGecko, marking a 1.2% increase in the last 24 hours and an impressive seven-day rally of 15.5%. These positive indicators have fueled anticipation within the crypto community.

|Shib Original Vision ($SOV): Riding the Wave of Meme Coins Success
PRESS RELEASE. In recent years, meme coins have gained significant traction due to various social media trends and hype. This is because these coins are often associated with fun and accessible ways to invest in cryptocurrency. Moreover, they are easy to understand and trade, making them attractive to new investors, particularly millenials and Gen Z, who are attracted to the humour and online culture associated with meme coins.
One of the most popular meme tokens today is Shiba Inu ($SHIB). Several factors contribute to the token's popularity, including the efforts of a passionate community referred to as the Shib Army. With the help of social media campaigns, memes, and other forms of online activism, this decentralised group of SHIB enthusiasts has promoted the coin and increased its value. At press time, $SHIB has a total market capitalization of $6.4 billion, making it one of the most valuable cryptocurrencies on the market.
$SOV's strong debut
Karma DAO introduced Shib Original Vision ($SOV) to break down Shiba Inu's current structure and return to a community-centric strategy.

|Musk's Twitter Payment Vision in Tune With Fiat-Crypto Gateway Alchemy P...
Elon Musk's Twitter has fallen into revenue difficulties, hoping to find new sources of revenue outside the original $5 billion a year advertising business model.
According to a recent Financial Times report, Musk is betting this ambition for revenue growth on the payments business. He has said he wants Twitter to become a 'universal app' that combines information, payments and commerce. As part of the plan, Twitter intends to provide fintech services, such as peer-to-peer transactions, savings accounts and debit cards. Previously, Twitter has been testing the payment business in scenarios such as rewarding creators.
An official document shows that Twitter has registered as a payment processor with the U.S. Treasury Department in November 2022 and began actively applying in various states to obtain the licenses required for the payment business, which is expected to be completed within a year to meet the regulatory and compliance needs of Twitter payments.
Notably, the payment system will first support payments in fiat currency, but the idea of adding cryptocurrency payments has been included in the initial idea, according to informed sources. With Twitter being the main battleground for the Web3 project's social media presence and Musk himself being a long-time holder of Dogecoin, there is speculation that Musk intends to lead Twitter into the crypto payments business and make payments a part of Twitter's grand vision.
As a result of this expectation, Dogecoin (DOGE) rose af...

Elon Musk appears to be proceeding with plans to integrate a payment system into Twitter. According to sources cited by the Financial Times (FT), Elon's lieutenant, Esther Crawford, is working on logistics and has formed a small team. Musk has previously stated his intention to create a payment system, and in mid-June 2022, the current Twitter owner mentioned the integration of cryptocurrencies.
“I think it would make sense to integrate payments into Twitter so that it’s easy to send money back and forth, and fiat currency as well as crypto — essentially, whatever somebody would find useful,” Musk detailed during the first all-hands meeting with Twitter’s staff.
Sources quoted by the FT on Jan. 30, 2023, say Twitter is also seeking regulatory registrations and state licenses. Those familiar with the subject said Twitter has started applying for financial licenses in several states. The FT publication also reports that Musk appointed Crawford to the position of CEO of Twitter Payments. According to the FT sources, the payment system will initially handle fiat currencies, wi...
|Cere Network Unveils Vision 2.0 Primed to Be a Key Driver of Web3 Infras...
[PRESS RELEASE - Berlin, Germany, 20th October 2022]
Cere Network, a leader in Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC) platforms, announced today the launch of Vision 2.0 to update supporters on its mission for truly decentralized Web3. The Vision 2.0 release follows the launch of Cere Network’s new website, which displays an array of exciting technology updates along with partnerships and applications in the pipeline.
Vision 2.0 provides a critical look at dApps and their data infrastructure. Despite what some may think, most of today's dApps are not decentralized, particularly their data — which is usually stored on centralized servers. This severely limits the decentralized and serverless potential of dApps and does not resolve the privacy and security issues plaguing the current Web2 centralized apps that host key user identity and data in compromising states.
“DApps and Web3, in general, cannot progress into a truly open and secure future without a truly decentralized data protocol,” said Fred Jin, Founder, and CEO of Cere. “App data continues to be stored on centralized servers. We are looking to change that.”
Cere's Decentralized Data Network and protocol, along with the Cere Tools & Services Suite, allow any application to efficiently serve and store data on its Decentralized Data Cloud (DDC), individually encrypted and segmented for each consumer. This world-changing data strategy and ethos will enable any consumer to truly own their data a...

Alex Barkaloff, a founding member of X.LA Foundation, has shared his vision for onboarding billions to web3. At the recent CogX festival for CEOs, technology leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors, Barkaloff proposed how web3 must evolve to meet the needs of internet users the world over. He also detailed the role X.LA Foundation will play in allowing content creators to leverage their IP so that they can profitably participate in the metaverse economy which will be enmeshed in this new internet standard.
On the panel “The Business of Entertainment: How Tech Is Transforming the Way We Play,” Barkaloff discussed the goals of X.LA Foundation in the context of web3. Fully leveraging blockchain technology stands at the heart of the company’s plans to bring the benefits of decentralization and democratization to all content creators.
“We serve the creators,” explained Barkaloff, “and are reaching out to many enterprise studios, film companies, music labels, etc. We want the whole creator audience to partner with us.” The inclusion of entertainment companies outside purely video games speaks to Barkaloff’s extensive career in senior roles, such as Executive Producer of Digital at movie production company Lionsgate.
On the topic of how best to open web3 to the masses, the X.LA co-founder had a lot to say. “The fact remains that only about three million crypto wallets have ever pur...
|Expectations v Reality: Vitalik Buterin on His Vision for Ethereum
Vitalik Buterin – co-founder of Ethereum – outlined some of his conflicting realizations and beliefs around cryptocurrency on Monday. He detailed the way that his idealistic vision for how Ethereum should grow – and what it should become – is failing to match reality.
Comparing Ethereum and Bitcoin
The programmer – who has never hesitated to criticize Bitcoin in the past – began his lengthy Twitter thread with a display of admiration for the primary crypto network. While Bitcoin successfully emphasizes “long term stability”, he believes Ethereum will require significant “active short term change” to be able to mimic that.
Compared to Ethereum, Bitcoin upgrades and changes far less frequently, and its community is extremely resistant to hard fork attempts. For example, Ethereum is preparing to shift its blockchain onto a proof of stake system, but Bitcoiners staunchly defend its legacy proof of work mechanism as superior.
Ethereum is also largely influenced by the Ethereum Foundation – a nonprofit dedicated to promoting and managing the network’s development. Vitalik showed appreciation for similar “live players” in his thread, yet also claims to prefer “fixed systems” that reduce reliance on individuals.
Furthermore, Ethereum’s base layer lacks the security to survive “truly extreme circumstances” as he would hope.
“Many key apps on Ethereum already rely on ...
|Megaverse: Building a Multichain Ecosystem to Accelerate the Metaverse V...
The metaverse has become an internet sensation in recent months, attracting tech enthusiasts from across the globe.
It is a concept that promises to be more immersive, interactive, and collaborative than what people do on the internet today. In other words, the metaverse is a virtual world where people can socialize, work, play, and perform other activities like they do in the real world.
Despite the infinite possibilities, the metaverse is still far from mass adoption. And while there is no one way to access the metaverse and bring it closer to mainstream social media users, Megaverse is building an ecosystem for a wide range of communities from across the globe to accelerate the growth of the metaverse.
What is Megaverse?
Megaverse is a Polygon-based metaverse platform designed to introduce social media users and the world's most active global communities to the metaverse.
It intends to bring the metaverse vision closer to reality for everyone on the internet. The project plans to accelerate the transition of social media into the metaverse by converting at least 1 million out of the over 4.5 billion daily social media users into daily metaverse users within the next two years.
Megaverse has a clear focus on making the metaverse about communities. Since the project acknowledges the importance of a community, it prioritizes the needs of the ecosystem's community.
Not only does Megaverse offer a more immersive metaverse experience for all communities, but it also intends to h...
|As More Parachains Go Live, Polkadot's Vision Becomes Reality ...
Gavin Wood’s vision of an interoperable network of customized blockchains is really taking shape. While 11 parachains have launched so far, by this time next year, Polkadot will have grown to more than 40 individual blockchains living on its network, dramatically expanding what has already become one of the most innovative ecosystems within the crypto space.
Polkadot is a Layer Zero protocol that serves as the nerve center of multiple parachains - Layer One blockchains built for different applications and use cases. This infrastructure enables the creation of a unique ecosystem of truly interoperable blockchains that all share the same network security and capabilities, with no need for complex token bridges to connect them all.
Polkadot’s Relay Chain can support anywhere from 100 to 250 parachains, and, as mentioned, almost a dozen projects are already building on it. To launch a parachain and gain access to a myriad of benefits the Relay Chain provides, projects must compete for a slot via an auction where the winner is determined by whichever locks up the most DOT tokens.
To secure a parachain, projects seek to raise DOT via crowdloans from their communities, offering their own native tokens in return for their backing. Whichever project wins a slot is entitled to lease that parachain for two years, during which time the bonded DOT tokens will remain locked up. Once the two-year period is up, those tokens will be returned to their owners, who als...
|Art Through Destruction: Interview With Jake Fried on His Night Vision N...
NFTs have taken center stage in the cryptocurrency industry throughout most of 2021, and they continue attracting massive interest in 2022.
Although there are some popular projects that went mainstream, like the Bored Ape Yacht Club, they tend to be mostly in the profile-picture domain which definitely caught the industry by a storm. Beyond that, though, many argue that NFTs have stronger use cases and unlimited potential.
This is, perhaps, why so many artists are drawn to the field. It democratizes access to fine art and also provides the artist with a global platform for sharing work that’s trackable, immutable, verifiable, and easily transportable.
Jake Fried. Source: Wikipedia
One artist that was drawn to this rapidly growing scene is Jake Fried. Currently working on an NFT project - the Night Vision Series - Fried’s art is unique in its way.
He uses ink and white-out to produce hallucinatory scenery, modifying and shooting the images repeatedly to create mind-bending animations that are designed to evolve at a frenzied pace. Fried’s experimental films have already been widely exhibited across the world, including at the Tate Modern and Sundance Film Festival. On top of that, he has also done commissioned work for some giants such as Netflix.

|Daniel Larimer Introduces the Fractally DAO to Deliver EOS' Origin...
Popular software programmer and co-founder of BitShares, Steem, and the EOS network, Daniel Larimer, recently announced the rebranding of his earlier endeavors.
Daniel Larimer Shares New Vision
In a press release shared with CryptoPotato, Larimer noted that his new vision, dubbed Fractally, will deliver the original EOS vision of 2017 to the modern crypto market.
He claimed that Fractally will be a unique blend of a decentralized exchange, a social media platform, a high-performance smart contracts network, and decentralized governance processes.
According to Larimer, the new project will be built on the lessons he has learned from his previous ventures, including one of the first and highest performance decentralized exchanges, BitShares, and the first decentralized social media, Steem.
Back in 2013, Larimer invented the concept of a 'Decentralized Autonomous Company (DAC),' upon which BitShares was built. Currently, the term DAC is now popularly referred to as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO).
Using BitShares, anyone can create, distribute, and exchange tokens with a simple user interface with no coding experience. However, according to Larimer, Fractally will bring something even better.
Becoming the DAO of DAOs
Larimer noted that Fractally will produce an EOS-based application that is 'just as powerful and even easier to use while also incorporating more recent advancements in automated market makers.' In a recent tweet, he stated that Fractally will become '...
