Glassnode: Bitcoin large transactions are currently dominating
According to the latest analysis of Glassnode, according to the latest analysis of Glassnode, Bitcoin is currently dominated by large-value transactions. Since September 2020, the dominance of large-value transactions on the chain worth more than $1 million has risen from 30% in the past. To 70%. As the currency price fell to a low of 29,000 US dollars in late July, the trading group of 1 million to 10 million US dollars clearly soared, and the dominant position rose by 20%, and the dominance of the trading volume above 10 million US dollars also soared. , Also rose by 20%, this phenomenon supported the price rebound. In addition, Glassnode found that Bitcoin, which has an older coin age, has been basically dormant recently, indicating that these large transactions are more likely to be accumulators rather than sellers, and they are also quite constructive in terms of price. On the other hand, transactions with a scale of less than $1 million have dropped from 70% before to about 30%-40% now. Since 2020, institutions and high-net-worth capital (the dominant players in large-scale transactions) are transforming the Bitcoin network Into a new era.

Report: 20% of Vietnamese bought Bitcoin
Golden Finance reported that the financial product comparison website Finder released the latest cryptocurrency report, assessing the adoption trends in 27 countries/regions in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. A Finder survey of 42,000 people in 27 countries/regions shows that Vietnam has the highest adoption rate, with 41% of respondents claiming that they have purchased cryptocurrency. 20% of Vietnamese said they bought Bitcoin, which is the highest among all countries surveyed. Although on the surface, Vietnam’s strong performance may be surprising, Finder’s survey confirmed other data indicating that this Southeast Asian country has performed well in encryption adoption. 30% of respondents in Indonesia and India claimed to have purchased cryptocurrency. This figure is 29% in Malaysia and 28% in the Philippines. On the other hand, the United Kingdom and the United States have the lowest adoption rates, at 8% and 9%, respectively.

Argentine President: El Salvador may be a good way to set Bitcoin as legal tender
Argentine President Alberto Fernandez showed an open attitude towards Bitcoin when he accepted Filo.news’ interview. When answering whether he would follow the example of El Salvador and set Bitcoin as a legal currency, he said: “I don’t want to go too far, but there is no reason to say “no”. Maybe this is a good way. They said the advantage of doing so is okay. Significantly eliminate the effect of inflation.” But the president also said: “This is a global discussion, and I must admit that this is a topic that needs to be treated with caution. Many people in the world have concerns, which is why this project or system has not yet been popularized. The reason for opening. But this is something to consider.” Earlier this week, Argentine Central Bank Governor Miguel Pesce said that he believes that Bitcoin “is not a real financial asset and will not generate lasting profitability”.
President of Argentina: Hope to regulate the intersection of Bitcoin, payment systems and trading markets
According to the Golden Financial Report, data show that inflation has led to the continuous devaluation of the Argentine national currency. The 100 pesos in 2019 is now worth 661 pesos. The President of Argentina assessed the rise in the perception of Bitcoin as a hedge against inflation in the global economy, but he still stated that he needs to be cautious when getting involved in the cryptocurrency field. The reason for caution is because of how unfamiliar it is and because It is difficult to understand how this wealth was realized. Many people in the world have these concerns, which is why this project, or this system has not been expanded, but this is a problem that needs to be considered. Although he did not reject the use of Bitcoin as a payment method, he did claim that Bitcoin is not a financial asset, but a commodity, because it does not have any basis for profit generation. In this sense, Pesce hopes to regulate “Regulate the intersection of Bitcoin, payment systems and trading markets” to prevent “low-level investors” from participating in digital asset investment.
Ethereum community members: To solve the geographical risk of network clusters, it is necessary to completely eliminate the ability of validators to extract MEV
Golden Finance reported that members of the Ethereum community published in ethresear.ch about “Will PoS Lead to the Geographical Clustering of Verifiers?” In the article, Mister-Meeseeks stated that one of the underestimated aspects of the PoS transition is that relocating validator nodes is much easier than mining operations. Therefore, we hope that block validators are more geographically mobile than current block miners. This means that if a certain geographic location has even a slight advantage, we expect a disproportionate number of validators to gather there. This is obviously not conducive to the resilience, security and decentralization of the network. Especially my actual concerns are related to MEV arbitrage. Most of the centralized exchange price discovery occurs in Tokyo. The FTX, Binance and Huobi matching engines all run in one data center. For validators engaged in MEV, co-location with these exchanges is a major advantage. Providing low-latency data for order activity means arbitrage on decentralized exchanges. In contrast, running a validator outside of Japan can add hundreds of milliseconds of latency. With a block time of 12 seconds, put your validator in Tokyo worth tens of millions of dollars per year to achieve a $1 billion CeX/DeX arbitrage strategy. In particular, Tokyo’s geographic location as a network cluster is particularly risky. It is extremely prone to earthquakes and tsunamis. What will happen to the network if more than 90% of verifiers go offline at the same time? In order to solve this problem, I think the protocol must either 1) completely eliminate the ability of the verifier to extract MEV. Or 2) Explicitly incentivize geographic diversity through some incentive schemes that are more important than MEV extraction.
New development of Ethereum 2.0: The formal verification of the beacon chain specification in the Dafny language has been completed
According to news on August 15, ConsenSys researcher and Ethereum 2.0 developer Ben Edgington stated in the disclosure of the new developments of Ethereum 2.0 that the formal verification of the beacon chain specification in the Dafny language has been completed. In addition, the Ethereum 2.0 API specification has been updated. To v2.0.0, prepare for Altair upgrade. One of the main goals of Altair’s upgrade is to enable light clients to run efficiently on the Ethereum 2.0 network. In the research progress, the current block on the beacon chain needs two epochs to complete finalization, about 13 minutes, and the final deterministic delay means that the validator has the opportunity to reorganize the nearest chain.
