Mainstream media is at it again as well as many other news outlets spreading fud - after taking a slight break attacking cryptocurrencies on Tuesday - news outlets such as CNBC are releasing headlines such as, "Most cryptocurrencies will crash to zero, Goldman Sachs says" other recent articles point out the recent hacks of Ethereum and how "devs don't know what to do" also releasing articles like "This NFL player lost money in Bitcoin and now he is listening to Warren Buffett" despite the recent price rises there will always be FUD being released - although not all of it is FUD, there are certainly many more positive articles popping up. As always we encourage our readers to not be swayed by these articles into doing impulsive trades and always to keep an objective perspective on the market.
Kailash Sharma:So what are the price predictions available?The first price prediction is from Reddit and puts ZIL at $0.50 in a year’s time from when the post was made. Looking at the date on the Reddit post, we see that this estimate was made in April. Therefore, the Reddit contributor expects ZIL to be worth $0.50 by next April.A second price prediction puts ZIL at $0.60 by the end of the year. This price prediction available online is based on historical data and using a combination of linear and polynomial regressions. The authors of the price prediction go-ahead to issue a disclaimer that they cannot predict prices with total certainty and their input should not be used as investment advice.The third and most interesting price prediction puts ZIL at an amazing $4.45 by the end of the year. This price prediction is based on a custom algorithm that has detected that ZIL is a fantastic investment. They too seem to share the notion that ZIL is the true Ethereum killer and not Tron or EOS.
分片可以加快速度。但是滞后因素也是一个问题。我问了官方，一个叫Jeremy的回答了我的问题。TPS is a function of latency and bandwith. It represents throughput. Zilliqa has very high bandwidth and medium latency. Ethereum has low bandwidth and low latency. Bitcoin has low bandwidth and high latency.Bandwidth is the amount of something you can fit at one timeLatency is the amount of time it takes to get it from start to destinationIn our context, latency is the duration of one block time. Zilliqa - 80s, Ethereum - 3s, Bitcoin - 600sTaking into account the unlock time (Zilliqa - 1 block, Ethereum - 30-60 blocks, Bitcoin - 10-30 blocks), the bandwidth for safe and secure transactions per second, Zilliqa really does have quite a lot more TPS一些项目宣称速度快，滞后小。还没有到主网阶段。
🌐 Domain Registrar Starts Registrations for Ethereum AddressesDid you know that you can link a ".eth" domain to your own Ethereum (ETH) address?Encirca is launching an Ethereum naming service (ENS) registrar to provide domain names at .eth locations.Similar to the domain name system (DNS) currently in play on the web, ENS will link to alphanumeric ethereum addresses through “human-readable” names.

From Amrit (team Zilliqa)Question of the day: As you may know, we are in the process of implementing staking for seed nodes (which are nodes that do not participate in consensus). I have also been thinking about an extension of this project which is about introducing staking for consensus nodes. The idea that I am fiddling with is somewhat different from a PoS/DPoS network (as I think slashing is not important). As you may know in order to be a node in the Zilliqa network, you have to do a PoW. However, unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, PoW is not required for every block. In other words, PoW is not used as a consensus protocol but instead as a Sybil resistance mechanism. So, technically speaking, you can replace PoW with any other Sybil resistance mechanism particularly staking. So, in the current model, you have 100% of nodes that do PoW. You can imagine a hybrid model where say 70% of the nodes do PoW and the remaining 30% do staking. Once the network is formed, they will all do PBFT to validate transactions and create blocks. So, the question is the following: if the network has say 2000 nodes in total and if you réserve say 600 of them for staking then, how do you design your staking mechanism? Which one of the following mechanism would you go for and why (support your argument with economic and security implications): 1. Fix the amount that each node needs to stake. Say 1 million ZILs. This allows not-so-rich node to participate as well. 2. Auction the 600 slots to the highest (or rather the richest) bidders. 3. Any other mechanism that you can think of. Do note that in the ideal scenario, you do not want the same set of 600 nodes to join the network. You may want to add some randomness. Thoughts?
