Here’s Why Your Bitcoin Transaction is Stuck

Bitcoin has transactional limits to what it can achieve, so when there is a high demand for the cryptocurrency, the network clogs up, causing mempool spikes.  The mempool is where unconfirmed transactions await their inclusion in the blockchain.  During normal operations, Bitcoin is capable of keeping up with the demands. Bitcoin transactions naturally gather in the mempool before miners record them on the blockchain.  Two forces affect Bitcoin’s capabilities to avoid going into a mempool spike.  Demand for Bitcoin transactions Changes in network mining power Demand for Bitcoin Transactions Bitcoin’s popularity is the most influential factor in the equation. When Bitcoin is not trending, the blockchain usually avoids overflowing the mempool and regularly zeroes out th...

Turkey to Pilot a Digital Currency in 2021

Turkey is set to pilot a digital currency in the second half of 2021. On Friday, central bank chief Naci Ağbal revealed the plans to Parliament. As reported in the Turkish media, Ağbal said, “There is an R&D project started on digital money. Currently, the conceptual phase of this project is completed. We aim to start pilot tests in the second half of 2021”. This move may not come as a surprise as the country has been hit with high inflation levels in recent years. Its chaotic past overshadows Turkey’s recent stable financial history. After stabilizing in 2001, the government held a tight grip over the Turkish Lira’s economy and value. However, following the 2016 failed coup, economic issues began to resurface, culminating in 2018 when Turkey’s inflation rate was 16...

Freeliquid on BSC and ETH – Collateralize your Liquidity for 90% Loans

With over $45 billion in tokens locked within the Ethereum-based decentralized finance market, banks are being shorted by financial enthusiasts worldwide. DeFi is here to stay, and unlike its centralised counterparts, it provides frictionless access to collateral-backed loans, liquidity pools, and hundreds of yield farming opportunities. Day in and day out, the market roars and produces a never-ending supply of success stories.  This is certainly the case with liquidity providers, the core pillars of decentralized exchanges, often referred to as automated market makers (AMMs). In exchange for supplying liquidity in token pairs, LPs receive a proportional cut of the transaction fees generated by their deposits. While this capital produces yields, it only does so for as l...

Hic Et Nunc is proving that NFT artists CAN support the environment… showing Humanity’s best face along the way.

Designed by Toscanini Heitor As soon as NFTs exploded, the criticism (with just a teeny, tiny bit of virtue signalling) did, too.  While Beeple and other artists selling their work for thousands (and even millions) of dollars hit the spotlight, doubters were quick to point out that the blockchain technology used to power NFTs used carbon-producing proof-of-work consensus algorithms. The Ethereum network, currently moving away from proof-of-work and towards a proof-of-stake mechanism, was among the main targets of these complaints. Designed by Toscanini Heitor Just as the markets demonstrated a real-world demand for crypto art, the engines of innovation started turning: The request for a place to store the products of the musings of thousands of artists worldwide in a ma...
