Created in 2014 as joke cryptocurrency, Dogecoin has gained traction among cryptocurrency users. Today, with nearly $740 million in capitalisation it ranks 33rd among major cryptocurrencies. By the end of the year a group of developers plans to introduce a Dogecoin hard fork, called Dogethereum (DOGX).

On February 5, developers from Dogethereum Bridge project successfully put DOGE through Ethereum Rinkeby test network, which helps to solve the scalability issue of the second key cryptocurrency. Dogecoin hard fork developers later talked about the new project on BitcoinTalk forum:

“Dogethereum is new decentralized digital currency, it will be founded on snapshot of popular Dogecoin, based on ETH algorithm with fastest speed of transactions, smart contracts.”

The ICO is not being considered, and the coin can be mined using plain graphics processors, being a “free for all” undertaking.

“There are no any ICOs, premines or other manipulations… there are no extra commissions, fees or predefined stakes. Project starts free for all, easy for initial GPU mining and making good profits. Price of DOGX tokens may become even higher when full power of smart contracts will be unleashed,” states the post.

According to BitcoinTalk, smart-contract integration with Dogecoin platform will make the coin more functional in real life. Original coin holders will get one new token for each unit on hands. The distribution procedure will be announced later.

According to CryptoCompare, “Ethereum Classic is an attempt at keeping the Ethereum blockchain unaltered by the part of the community that opposed the hard fork and the return of The DAO funds. It started trading on Poloniex and is getting more and more traction. The Ethereum Classic mission statement is: “We believe in decentralized, censorship-resistant, permissionless blockchains. We believe in the original vision of Ethereum as a world computer you can’t shut down, running irreversible smart contracts. We believe in a strong separation of concerns, where system forks are only possible in order to correct actual platform bugs, not to bail out failed contracts and special interests. We believe in censorship-resistant platform that can be actually trusted – by anyone.” Our block explorer data: total coins supply, total network hash rate, last block number and total difficulty are freely provided by https://gastracker.io/ In 2017, the Die Hard fork was implemented in ETC, removing the Ethereum difficulty bomb. Currently, there are no plans to move to Proof of Stake like Ethereum, although developers at the IOHK institute are developing a new PoS protocol for Ethereum Classic.”

Traders Are Bullish on Bitcoin Rival Ethereum, This is Why

Ethereum largely held steady at around the $900 mark this month, apart from a major drop to $585 on February 6 and an incredible rise to $979 on February 18.

Ethereum largely held steady at around the $900 mark this month, apart from a major drop to $585 on February 6 and an incredible rise to $979 on February 18. Today Ethereum suffered losses again, but so did other cryptocurrencies after President Nicolas Maduro said on Twitter that Venezuela’s petro token raised $735 million in the first day of a pre-sale.

According to cryptocurrency analysts with the Canadian financial outlet Profit Confidential, Ethereum price is expected to significantly grow over the longer term.

Ethereum is currently used as a platform by a wide variety of ICOs as well as other cryptocurrencies. Many corporations are using its smart contracts capability in order to create their own products. Experts believe that as the platform becomes widely used, it will gain more and more movement and this will increase the price of the cryptocurrency.

The problem with the ICOs is that they are unregulated and there is nothing to stop a company from escaping with someone else’s money. In most countries it will be almost impossible to hold the culprit to account or win back investors’ money.

But Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum co-founder, has found a solution to the problem. The idea comes from Ethereum’s “decentralized autonomous organization” (DAO). Although the first DAO effort ended in absolute fiasco — a glitch allowed a hacker to steal $60 million,– a new project called The Abyss is reviving the DAO concept with necessary improvements. The Abyss can’t simply accept investors’ cash and disappear; investors can withdraw at any point and get their money back.

“The intention is that the voters start off by giving the development team a reasonable and not-too-high monthly budget, and raise it over time as the team demonstrates its ability to competently execute with its existing budget,” Vitalik Buterin said in a blog post.

As the decentralized usage of the platform becomes more popular, the demand for the cryptocurrency will also increase, analysts claim, adding that Vitalik Buterin “has proven to be wise beyond his years”.

Most of the cryptocurrency enthusiasts are bullish on Ethereum and believe that by July 2018 its rate will exceed $1,500.
