Aave Launches V3: Improved Security & Capital Efficiency on Ethereum

• Aave has deployed V3 of their protocol on the Ethereum mainnet.
• V3 introduces new risk mitigation features, improved capital efficiency, and decentralized liquidity.
• Aave calls V3 the “most significant upgrade to the Aave protocol” since its inception in January 2017.

Aave, the decentralized finance (DeFi) platform, has just deployed the third version of their protocol on the Ethereum mainnet. This version, dubbed V3, introduces several new features that are aimed at improving the security and capital efficiency of the platform.

At its core, Aave V3 offers users new risk mitigation features that are designed to protect user funds. These include Isolation Mode, which allows for more assets to be listed on Aave as collateral while still maintaining the security of the protocol. Additionally, V3 introduces High-Efficiency Mode, which allows users to increase their capital efficiency when staking or borrowing.

Aave is also focusing on reducing gas costs across all functions. According to the team, V3 reduces gas costs by 20-25%, making the platform more accessible to users. This is an important step, as gas costs are a major barrier to entry for many Ethereum users.

The team also notes that V3 is the “most significant upgrade to the Aave protocol” since its launch in January 2017. The upgrade is designed to offer users improved capital efficiency and decentralized liquidity, as well as better security for their funds.

Aave’s governance token AAVE remained flat after V3 was deployed. It’s currently trading at $88.12. This is a sign that the market is optimistic about the upgrade and its potential to improve the platform.

The Aave team is excited about the launch of V3 and the potential it has to improve the user experience. Stani Kulechov, CEO of Aave, said: “The most exciting aspect of V3 is its flexible design, which enables a variety of new risk mitigation features, and its improved capital efficiency & decentralized liquidity – all while reducing gas costs.”

The team will continue to monitor the performance of V3 and make any necessary improvements to ensure that the platform is secure and efficient. With the successful launch of V3, Aave is looking to cement its position as one of the leading DeFi platforms on the Ethereum blockchain.

Experts Discuss Ethereum Merge, Tornado Cash, and Venture Money at Blockchain Events

• Edward Snowden talked at Camp Decrypt 2022 about the Ethereum merge, the sanctioning of Tornado Cash, privacy shortcomings of Bitcoin and Ethereum and using DAOs to source tips from whistleblowers.
• Kathleen Breitman talked about how Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since inception, admiration for Tendermint, Ethereum and sharding, progressive decentralization and NFT gaming at Web Summit 2022.

At Camp Decrypt 2022 in Napa, California, Edward Snowden, the renowned privacy advocate and former contractor for the National Security Agency, gave an extensive talk on the most pressing topics in the blockchain space. During the talk, he discussed the Ethereum merge, the sanctioning of Ethereum mixer Tornado Cash by the U.S. government, the privacy shortcomings of Bitcoin and Ethereum, and his view on using DAOs to source tips from whistleblowers.

Snowden expressed his opinion that while the Ethereum merge is “a step in the right direction”, it is “not the only solution” to the challenges of scalability and decentralization. He argued that the merger of the Ethereum networks is a “temporary solution”, and that “long-term solutions” should be sought. He also discussed the sanctions placed on Tornado Cash by the U.S. government, noting that it “is not a crime to mix your money.”

He also discussed the privacy issues of both Bitcoin and Ethereum, noting that “the privacy of Bitcoin and Ethereum has failed”. He argued that “the way the system works today, the network is not really that private.” He went on to suggest that privacy needs to be built into the protocol level, rather than relying on outside tools like mixers.

Snowden also discussed his view on using DAOs to source tips from whistleblowers. He argued that “DAOs are a powerful tool” and that they can “act as a signal to people in a way that is censorship-resistant.” He went on to say that “DAOs can be used to source tips, ideas, and feedback from people who are not necessarily connected to the DAO.”

At Web Summit in Lisbon, Kathleen Breitman, co-founder of Tezos, gave an extensive talk about how the Tezos blockchain has used a proof-of-stake mechanism since its inception.

Bitcoin (BTC) veert op, indicatoren wijzen op voortzetting bullish

  • Bitcoin heeft een wekelijkse bullish engulfing candlestick gemaakt.
  • Dagelijkse en wekelijkse indicatoren zijn bullish.
  • BTC is net begonnen aan golf vijf van een lange termijn bullish impuls.

De prijs van bitcoin (BTC) veerde vorige week indrukwekkend op en biedt sterke tekenen van een bullish voortzetting op lange termijn.

Verwacht wordt dat BTC de opwaartse beweging zal voortzetten en de bullish trend zal hervatten.

Wekelijkse BTC beweging

BTC veerde vorige week indrukwekkend op en creëerde daarbij een bullish engulfing candlestick. Dit suggereert dat de kopers terug de controle hebben na de verkoop die de prijs kort onder $50.000 bracht twee weken geleden.

Technische indicatoren zijn ook bullish. De RSI heeft een verborgen opwaartse divergentie gegenereerd, een sterk teken van voortzetting van de trend. Bovendien is de Stochastics oscillator opveren, waardoor een mogelijke bearish cross ongeldig wordt.

De MACD verliest momentum maar neemt nog steeds toe. Daarom is het waarschijnlijk dat de lange termijn BTC trend nog steeds bullish is.

Hogere low leidt tot voortzetting

De daggrafiek is eveneens bullish. De prijs heeft al een hogere low gecreëerd en beweegt opwaarts.

Technische indicatoren in het dagelijkse tijdsframe zijn eveneens bullish.

De MACD stijgt en is bijna positief, de RSI is boven de 50 gekomen en de Stochastics oscillator beweegt omhoog en staat op het punt om een bullish cross te maken.

Daarom wordt verwacht dat BTC opwaarts zal blijven bewegen.

Golftelling

De golftelling geeft aan dat BTC zich nog steeds in een lange termijn bullish impuls (wit) bevindt die begon met de low van maart 2020.

Als dat zo is, liggen de twee meest waarschijnlijke doelen voor de top van de hele impuls op $81.300 en $102.300. Deze doelen werden gevonden door gebruik te maken van een Fib projectie op golven 1-3.

De telling suggereert dat de hele beweging sinds februari een zeer grote lopende vlakke correctie is geweest. Gewoonlijk worden lopende vlakke golven gevolgd door een sterke uitbraak.

Dit klopt zowel met de telling als met de lezingen van de dagelijkse indicatoren.

Conclusie

Het is waarschijnlijk dat BTC net begonnen is aan golf vijf van zijn langdurige bullish impuls. Dit wordt ondersteund door zowel de koersbeweging als de lezingen van technische indicatoren.

Russell Okung becomes first NFL player to receive his salary in Bitcoin

Carolina Panthers NFL player Russell Okung will receive part of his salary in bitcoins.

The National Football League (NFL) and the players‘ association approved the payment.

“Pay me with Bitcoin Trader” has become a reality for National Football League player Russell Okung.

First NFL player paid in BTC

Russell Okung becomes the first player in one of America’s major sports leagues to receive his salary in BTC. The Carolina Panthers player is paid an annual salary of $ 13 million that will be split equally between bitcoin and dollars.

Russell Okung uses the Zap startup founded by Jack Mallers. The startup can convert checks or transfers into BTC via its service called Strike .

Jack Mallers said other professional athletes, including members of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team and New York Yankees baseball team, have also started using the startup.

Jack Mallers said the NFL and the Players‘ Association were involved in securing approval for such an operation.

How does Strike work ?

Technically, Okung is still paid in dollars. Behind the scenes, Strike receives a direct deposit from his team and then exchanges dollars for bitcoin. The BTCs are then sent to a wallet controlled by Russell Okung.

According to its founder, Strike is in the process of moving to “seven digits” of monthly volume and expects that number to increase as top sports people want to receive their salaries in BTC. He stated :

We have found a way to allow any individual to receive a [percentage] of their work in Bitcoin.
