Ripple has to take the next major strike. The largest digital asset manager “Grayscale” cancels its XRP trust after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) wants to clarify XRP as a security paper instead of an exchange token.

Grayscale no longer offers XRP trust

The lawsuit filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has unleashed an avalanche of negative events that now threaten to bury the FinTech company underneath. Investors, for example, are now demanding their money back in droves. Crypto exchanges, such as Coinbase, are unceremoniously removing all XRP trading pairs from their trading platforms. As if that wasn’t a challenging enough situation, Grayscale…

Etherium just launched their“Phase 0” from the ETH 2.0 update. Now you can stack your Etherium and gain massive returns. Today we’re going to have a look at what this all means to your Etherium and which risks and opportunities this brings.

Everyone can gain profits with Etherium 2.0

Unlike Bitcoin which is based on the “Proof-of-Work” principle, Etherium 2.0 is now implementing the “Proof-of-Stake”. With this update, a new so-called “Beacon-Chain” is implemented to the Etherium ecosystem. Using this new system, there is no more need for miners, as the validation on the etherium network is done exclusively by users who are staking their Etherium.

Why Proof-of-Stake is “better” than Proof-of-Work


The bitcoin price is recovering, which is also reflected in the rankings of the largest market capitalization. Bitcoin would be the 6th largest company (by market capitalization) in the world.

Tesla outperforms Facebook, Tencent and Tesla!

If we take a look at the world’s most valuable companies, Apple, with a market capitalization of currently more than 2.17 trillion US-Dollars, has been able to hold on to the first place for quite some time. The oil company Saudi Aramco occupies second place. In the third, fourth and fifth places are — unsurprisingly — Microsoft, Amazon and Alphabet (Google’s parent company).

In 2021, Bitcoin(BTC) is set to turn 12 years old. I am sure that everyone here has at least heard of it by now. As our favorite digital currency continues to mature over time, so does its money-making opportunities. More people are figuring out how to make money with Bitcoin, and I understand that it can sometimes get hard to keep up. To make things a bit easier for you, I compiled a list of 6 ways you can turn 2021 into a Bitcoin-filled year.

1. Bitcoin mining

Recently, one of the biggest crypto whales “0x_B1” revealed its crypto portfolio. This is entirely made up of Etherium and etherium-based “ERC-20 tokens”. Those are tokens that are running on an etherium basis. According to Etherscan, the crypto whale owns around $302 million in various altcoins (12 Jan 2021).

The Crypto Whale currently owns 1.250 Etherium (approximately $1.2 million USD). In addition, the Crypto Whale manages other altcoins. However, the largest share in his portfolio is taken up by these four coins:

  • Compound Etherium (125,9 Million US-Dollar)
  • Interest bearing Aave (59,4 Million US-Dollar)
  • Compound Wrapped Bitcoin (51,6 Millionen US-Dollar)
  • Interest…

Blockchain has been gaining more and more traction in recent years. Take Frankfurt Airport, for example. Here, the IOTA blockchain is being used to recognize and manage Covid-19 tested individuals. The system’s developer is Ubrich, a blockchain cybersecurity technology entrepreneur based in Cologne, Germany. Now the new technology, called the “Digital Corona Test Certificate,” is being used on a large scale for the first time. The IOTA blockchain manages all the data of the people who have been vaccinated or tested in the background. This all takes place using fingerprint scanners. Possibly also with iris scanners in the future.

IOTA protocol and Main Tangle


Vor Kurzem hat einer der größten Krypto-Whales “0x_B1” sein Kryptoportfolio offengelegt. Hierbei handelt es sich ausschließlich um Etherium und auf Etherium basierende ERC-20 Token. Etherscan zufolge besitzt der Krypto-Whale rund 302 Millionen USD in verschiedenen Altcoins (12. Jannuar 2021).

Der Krypto Whale ist momentan im Besitz von 1.250 Etherium (rund 1,2 Millionen USD). Zusätzlich verwaltet der Krypto Whale noch weiter Altcoins. Der größte Anteil in seinem Portfolio nehmen jedoch diese vier Coins ein:

  • Compound Etherium (125,9 Million US-Dollar)
  • Interest bearing Aave (59,4 Million US-Dollar)
  • Compound Wrapped Bitcoin (51,6 Millionen US-Dollar)
  • Interest bearing Etherium (20,3 Millionen US-Dollar)

Der Krypto Trader wies in seinem Tweet, Twitter zudem darauf hin, dass er gerne einen Verifikationshaken hätte. Dies begründet er mit folgender Aussage:

“ Immerhin ist das (Handelsvolumen, Anm.d.Red.) doch die akzeptierteste Methode, verifiziert zu werden?”

Die Blockchain findet in den letzten Jahren immer mehr anklang. So wie am Frankfurter Flughafen zum Beispiel. Hier wird die IOTA-Blockchain dazu genutzt, um Covid-19 getestete Personen zu erkennen und verwalten. Entwickler des Systems ist Ubrich, ein Blockchain-Cybersicherheitstechnologieunternehmer aus Köln. Nun kommt die neue Technologie namens “Digitales Corona-Testzertifikat” zum ersten Mal im großen Maßstab zum Einsatz.

IOTA Protokoll und “Main-Tangle”

Im Gegensatz zu Bitcoin oder Etherium läuft dieses System auf dem IOTA Protokoll. Da “gewöhnliche” Blockchains nur einen Block zur gleichen Zeit abarbeiten kann (langsame Transaktionen) kommt die IOTA Blockchain (Main-Tangle)in Spiel. Aufgrund der IOTA Programmierung kann dessen Blockchain verschiedene Transaktionen auf ein Mal…
