Cosa dovreste sapere sul modello di sicurezza dell’Ethereum

Oggi il panorama degli asset digitali si sta lentamente acclimatando al fatto che l’Ethereum 2.0 si sta finalmente realizzando. Infatti, dopo il recente lancio della Beacon Chain, sono state schiacciate le voci di un aumento dei ritardi e di un’apparente mancanza di sostegno.

Un recente rapporto di Coinmetrics ha rapidamente messo in evidenza un miglioramento della metrica nell’ecosistema dell’Ethereum. Secondo il rapporto, l’hashrate di Ethereum sta salendo a nuovi livelli elevati di tutti i tempi. Infatti, è stato il 1° dicembre che l’hashrate ha toccato un nuovo ATH, in seguito al quale la crescita è stata costante.

Ora, ciò che è interessante èche anche se l’Ethereum 2.0 promuove effettivamente la Proof of Stake, l’hashrate del PFH ha toccato un nuovo massimo il giorno dopo il lancio della catena di fari del PF 2.0.

Ora, mentre l’Ethereum 2.0 potrebbe effettivamente migliorare la sicurezza dell’Ethereum, c’è ancora molto da sapere sulla politica monetaria dell’Etereum.

Ethereum 2.0: Tasso di inflazione e sicurezza

Dopo il lancio della catena di fari Ethereum 2.0, il tasso d’inflazione annuale dei ETH scenderà ben al di sotto dell’1% e sarà addirittura inferiore al tasso d’inflazione della Bitcoin. Ora, il calo del tasso di inflazione ha molto a che fare con il suo passaggio a Proof-of-Stake.

In questo caso, è importante notare che una delle principali proposte del PoS è che gli scommettitori pagano volentieri costi di capitale più alti per un dollaro di ricompensa. In generale, ciò è dovuto al fatto che gli stakeer devono affrontare solo un costo di opportunità, una cifra che non si deprezza come quando si investe in attrezzature ASIC.

Quindi, i costi di capitale più elevati sono un vantaggio, poiché aumentano anche il costo dell’attacco all’Ethereum.

Emissione minima di sicurezza?

Con un costo del capitale più elevato, l’Ethereum sta praticamente ottenendo un livello di sicurezza uguale per ricompense in dollari più basse. Soprannominato da Ryan Watkins „Minimum Necessary Issuance“ (Emissione minima necessaria), ETH 2.0 ha bisogno di un importo minimo di emissione per garantire la sicurezza dell’Ethereum.

La politica monetaria del ETH 2.0 sta ottimizzando la rete dell’Ethereum, mentre la politica monetaria della Bitcoin punta alla „perfezione monetaria“.

L’unica conseguenza di questa argomentazione è che mancano ancora 12-24 mesi alla fase 1.5 (l’Ethereum 1.0 si è fuso a metà strada con l’ETH 2.0), il che rende l’argomentazione di cui sopra per il futuro, ma ancora inevitabile.

Verrà un momento in cui la politica monetaria di Bitcoin potrebbe scontrarsi con quella di Ethereum e mentre quella di BTC è più facile da comunicare e spiegare, il modello di sicurezza di Ethereum potrebbe essere teoricamente più sostenibile a causa del PoS.

Bitcoin (BTC) turns 12 and celebrates with price fireworks

It was 12 years ago today that the Bitcoin Blockchain was brought to life by its inventor Satoshi Nakamoto. On 3 January 2009, the first transaction was initiated on the Bitcoin Blockchain. Its unknown inventor had thus written a message in the first Bitcoin block, the so-called Genesis Block. What became of it 12 years later, no one could have imagined at the time.

With all the news about the rising Bitcoin price, some might overlook the fact that today the No.1 cryptocurrency is celebrating a birthday of sorts. 12 years ago, or to put it another way: 664,278 blocks ago, Satoshi Nakamoto created the first block of what was then still 50 BTC. This was the beginning for the oldest and most successful blockchain in the world, which today claims a market capitalisation of over 600 billion US dollars.

The anonymous inventor launched the Bitcoin network just two months after the Bitcoin whitepaper was published. In the whitepaper, which he published on 31 October 2008, he explained Bitcoin Evolution app how the new monetary system worked. About two months later, theory turned into practice.

In Block Zero, i.e. the Genesis Block, a message was also hidden with the first transaction:

Satoshi Nakamoto
This news refers to the cover story of The London Times newspaper with the same title. For many crypto enthusiasts, the reference is clear. They see hidden in this news a criticism of the current banking and financial system. After all, bank bailouts and major social unrest occurred at the time in the wake of the financial crisis.

The London Times 03.01.2009
With the narrative „Be your own Bank“, the Bitcoin phenomenon has become an antagonist of the existing, centralised banking system. Libertarian circles in particular see Bitcoin as an opportunity for a monetary system that does without the state and banks.

What Bitcoin has become
As successful as Bitcoin is and its price is climbing one all-time high after another, Bitcoin is now more than ever in the hands of traditional financial players. Yet it is now just as much the institutional investors as private individuals who hold Bitcoin as an asset. In the course of this, states and regulatory authorities are creating regulatory guard rails for the former „cypherpunk money“.

Bitcoin has gained acceptance not as a currency, but as a store of value. The fact that digital gold protects purchasing power is now seen as Bitcoin’s primary use case. The payment function in the sense of a currency has long been secondary. The deflationary nature of Bitcoin runs counter to the original goal of creating a currency more than it helps it.

However, this in no way diminishes the added value that Satoshi Nakamoto brought into the world 12 years ago. The countless billions that flow into Bitcoin every day show that there is a demand for a digital safe haven that cannot be manipulated by central banks and states.

Forecast: Bitcoin will peak in early 2021

At the beginning of 2021, the price of bitcoin will reach its peak values, predicts the president of Newton Advisors Mark Newton.

On CNBC, the expert analyzed the cryptocurrency’s dynamics and concluded that the rally is „running out of steam,“ and we are gradually approaching the finale of the 2020 race.

On Tuesday, December 29, BTC is trading around $26,800. The largest cryptocurrency’s capitalization is approaching $500 billion.

The head of Newton Advisors said:

I think we still have a ways to go. My analysis shows that in the near term we will peak around the beginning of January.

Newton, as well as many other supporters of BTC, believes that the cryptocurrency is getting more expensive this year due to the influx of institutional investors. Such players are now staying in anticipation of another failure to buy new coins.

The president of Newton Advisors himself suggests investors to sell their bitcoins within the next two weeks. After that, he expects a correction.

The inevitability of an imminent pullback was recently stated by trader Josh Rager. In his opinion, the correction will come after reaching $30,000.

However, you should not expect a significant fall. For example, Vijay Aiyar, manager of the Luno exchange, believes that the rollback will be no more than 10-15% of the current bitcoin values.
