The technology will allow to provide high speed of performance of set of operations for short term and with the low commission.

EOS.IO was chosen after lengthy checks of operability and safety. According to the developers, the new exchange will fully comply with the requirements of regulators.

New Trend: Why Companies Replacing the Term “Blockchain” to “DLT”

Due to harmful hype to innovative chain of transaction blocks, some companies use “DLT” instead of “Blockchain”, which stands for Distributed Ledger Technology.

The term replacing begins with that some organisations, in their advertising and informational campaigns, decided to change the word “Blockchain” to “DLT”. Such a move connected with the hype about the blockchain technology. Therefore the companies, in order to take some of the negative from them,went on that kind of cunning. In this regard, an independent analytical company Forrester Research has made their own investigation.

Company analytics point out, that “Blockchain” is a trend-word of crypto industry, which many crypto projects abused. The word is used even when the technology isn’t used in the product. The usage of “Blockchain” for the hype invalidate the technology itself.  Since, the blockchain in general is associated with cryptocurrency, when the company which are not related to the world of cryptocurrency, decided to go away from the naming technology and started to use the word “DLT” , in order not to associate their activity with the digital money.

Meanwhile, the word “Blockchain” overtakes the word “Cryptocurrency” by frequency of requests in the world search, according to the Google Trends.

Vinny Lingham is Clear About Bitcoin: “I don’t think we see $20k for a while”

Significant part of crypto community, still cannot recover from the fall of the cryptocurrency, the rate of which is still in a red zone. According to the CoinMarketCap, Bitcoin, at the moment of writing the article, is set on at $3 747 per coin and still falling.

But some representatives of crypto community have their own view about the situation on the market and predict their own price of Bitcoin.

Vinny Lingham, an Internet entrepreneur, Co-founder and CEO of Civic, has answered to a few question of The Coin Shark, to clarify the situation on the market:

Hello, Vinny. What do you think, will Bitcoin be able to overcome the $20 thousand mark next year?

I took a $20k bet with Ronnie Moas in Vegas, last month. He predicted $28k by EOY 2019. I disagreed. I don’t think we see $20k for a while, at the very least 2020, but possibly even 2021.

In your opinion, what is the problem with cryptocurrency at the moment?

There is too much hype, and not enough substance, as well as too much focus on the technology and not enough focus on the business or consumer value add.

Can Ethereum become the leader in 2019?

It is possible, but unlikely unless they can fix the scaling issues and deal with the lack of consensus within their community.
