There has been a recent price abrupt drop in the price of Bitcoins to 1000 dollars due to the abolishment of the hardfork Segwit2x and because of this reason the world of Blockchain is in a chaos. Because of the abrupt drop in the prices, bitcoin has been the main concern for all news channels meanwhile Ethereum was slowly improving and increasing its worth.
The tokens like ERC223 and ERC20 were produced as the initial coin offerings continued to grow which made them the topmost cap coin market to use them. The foundation of Ethereum recently reported that there has been an increased transaction of 44 percent that of the Blockchain- Bitcoin which indicated the strength of the system of Ethereum.
Moreover, there was a stability shown by the Ethereum from 30 to 300 which accounted to the entire transactions made by them whereas Bitcoins has shown a figure of fluctuation between 39000 to 47000.
Since the technical developers saw an immense threat from the quantum PC’s, they criticized when Ethereum announced its hardfork- Byzantium along with a protocol- ZK-SNARK which used the platform of the cryptocurrency. However, some of these developers mentioned that this hardfork will prove to be a hit in the Wall Street but the risk related to the quantum PC’s have made it stable.
Although, Viltalik Buterin- a founder of Ethereum recently said that the Ethereum protocol named ZK-STARK has been formulated for protecting the null transactional information also from quantum PC’s. This new protocol depends on knowledge and hashes concepts instead of the trustworthy setup of the previous protocol- ZK-SNARK.
The new anonymity which is deemed important for the procedures like the financial and public transactions in the Blockchain might have a cost for it. Buterin prescribed that the data cost might come around 288 bytes to hundreds of kilobytes. Anyhow, if data is received in abundance, a complete security and a complete anonymity can be made to the transactions in an area where anonymity is at its peak and this data might be helpful when no other accomplishment can be made by other systems.
Since there is a surge in the volume of transactions, with a speedy transactional arrangements and incline in the technology, there is a forecast stating that Ethereum might flourish in the future.
