31.07.20202 - End of July - News from the block and chain

  • Gas fees - they are higher than ever, and now is indeed a good day to be a farmer, if you have a mining farm (with proper rigs, mining Ethereum is more lucrative than ever, even better than 2017, when ETH used to be $1400). 
  • Elrond mainnet was launched yesterday, and while i found the presentation being great, I am at least mystified, to say it nicely, by some of the Elrond team decisions. First, going from 80 billions to 80 millions, and rebranding from Elrond to Elrond Gold. Second, the hype around the mainnet launched didn't translate well in real life ( a drop from $0.21 to 0.18). There is still some promising unknown in this project, but i was happy to sell my coins for 600% profit (focusing on my ETH accumulation and AMPL mining). Some envious people even said that Elrond team was inspiring from some of Steve Jobs presentations, but to me seems a lot more like Elon Musk, to be honest. 
  • And as i was mentioning Amplefort, there is some crazy volatility in here, and a wild swinging up and down. 27th of July - $2.88, 31st of July - $0.60, all while this is supposed to act like a stablecoin of sorts. But it is gravitating around $1 finally, reaching some equilibrium lately. Meanwhile, the Amplefort Geyser will be up oly for another 70 days, so that means that you have only 10 days remaining with more than 300% APY (Translation, as you keep your liquidity on Uniswap, the Geyser will drip AMPL x1 when you start, x2 - 200%APY after 30 days and x3 - 300%APY after 60 days, with only 70 days remaining before it will stop). Took me a while to understand the math, at least some of that. And it is only correct for the Beehive version, i did not use the other one.)

  • EOS Block.one starts to use their 10% for voting, in a similar move with Justin Sun taking over Steem. (Say what?).
  • For the rest of them crypto, everything looks well, BTC is at $11150, up 1.84%, ETH is at $339, up 6.86%, AAVE and Aleph.im got a nice pump in the last 24 hours.

Keep it up and enjoy the summer!
