Vitalik Buterin schools Elon Musk on Ethereum’s best use-cases

The most recent conversation between Elon Musk and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin seems to have shifted from trolling to legitimate discussion. Earlier this morning, the Tesla founder mysteriously tweeted “Ethereum.” Seven minutes later, he took it back with a cheeky “jk” (‘just kidding.’) Musk continued to poke fun, even after Buterin invited him to attend an Ethereum developer’s conference. Now, Musk actually asked Buterin a serious question: what’s Ethereum good for? What should be devel...

ZenGo wants to become the crypto wallet for the masses

KZen is about to release ZenGo, a mobile app to manage your cryptocurrencies securely and more easily. There are already countless of crypto wallets out there, but the startup thinks they’re all either too complicated or too insecure. If you own cryptocurrencies, chances are they’re sitting on an exchange, such as Coinbase or Binance. If somebody manages to log in to your account, nothing is stopping them from sending those assets to other wallets and stealing everything. Worse, if somebody hack...

Ethereum Plans To Cut Its Absurd Energy Consumption By 99 Percent

An anonymous reader quotes a report from IEEE Spectrum: Ethereum mining consumes a quarter to half of what Bitcoin mining does, but that still means that for most of 2018 it was using roughly as much electricity as Iceland. Indeed, the typical Ethereum transaction gobbles more power than an average U.S. household uses in a day. "That's just a huge waste of resources, even if you don't believe that pollution and carbon dioxide are an issue. There are real consumers -- real people -- whose need fo...

Video Of The Week: Ethereum 2.0

I just watched Vitalik Buterin’s keynote at Devcon 4 in Prague last week, on Halloween and on the tenth anniversary of Satoshi’s whitepaper.

Ethereum Founder Vitalik Buterin Says His Creation Can't Succeed Unless He Takes a Step Back

An anonymous reader shares a report: When you ask him about the challenges facing the blockchain system he founded five years ago, Vitalik Buterin often launches into a rapid-fire lecture full of Ethereum-specific jargon. But ask him about his own role in the technology's future, and he quickly becomes more circumspect. There's no doubt that Buterin, 24, is still the guiding light for the idealistic community that has sprung up around his creation. That's been front and center this week in Pragu...
