Ethereum (ETH) has a bright future
Alex Kruger, a cryptocurrency analyst, said that the update of Ethereum Constantinople will change the game for Ethereum. This long-awaited update is going to reduce blocking premiums and decrease the creation of ETH supplies. From his official Twitter page, he wrote:
"The Ethereum Constantinople fork will arrive on the 7080000 block on January 16, 2019. The block premiums will be reduced to 2 ETHs In the long run, this will be bullish for ETH."
According to him, the bull that ran with ETH recently, even when the BTC was falling, may have been caused by the gallows of Constantinople. When the date of release of Constantinople was determined, the price of Eth rose slightly, but subsequently fell against the USD. He said the price increase could also be related to the request for a cryptocurrency fund from the co-founder of Ethereum, Joseph Lubin.
In recent days, one of the hot topics in the Ethereum community was Lubin's statement on a cryptocurrency fund. Lubin said the bear market lasted too long and the time has come for a recovery. Many critics put Lubin under fire after the news that his startup blockchain, ConsenSys, will fire around 50% to 60% of his staff.
