London hardfork, a major update to Ethereum 2.0, is to begin during July. Ethereum 2.0 is an extensive update for switching from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. Proof-of-work (PoW) means the method of validating blocks through a mining machine. Bitcoin is a representative digital asset using the PoW. Proof-of-stake, on the contrary, validates blocks according to the validators’ shares. Industry officials forecast that a more energy-efficient network will be established once the Ethereum 2.0 update is completed.


The defined contribution (DC) retirement pension commonly known as “401K” has been a main driving force behind the explosive growth of the NYSE. The plan’s current total assets amount to nearly 8 quadrillion KRW. The Dow was around 1,000 in the early 1980s but it surpassed the 10,000 mark in 1999 thanks to the rising trend of retirement contributions. Created in 1880s, the Dow had been rising slowly before it saw a tenfold increase in 16 years mainly owing to massive influx of money from retirement pensions along with tax benefits.

There is increasing fear that investors will engage in a mass sell-off of Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), an asset which grew to become the world’s biggest indirect Bitcoin investment product (fund) thanks to investments by institutional investors and wealthy individuals.

It was JP Morgan Chase, a representative investment bank (IB) on Wall street, that has given rise to such fear. Recently, JP Morgan released its Bitcoin investment report and warned that GBTC investors whose net assets amount to 21.9 billion dollars (about 24.8 trillion won) will start a selling spree in July.

For the first time in quite a while, fresh news came out on blockchain for voting and contributions.

The committee’s decision shows how much the US mainstream is interested in cryptocurrency and blockchain.

Voting and contributions have long been talked about as some of the most feasible blockchain application areas in daily life. In fact…

The current talk of the town in the global financial market is the tightened global monetary policy led by the Federal Reserve (Fed). Central banks continue to increase and decrease the amount of money in circulation as monetary policies to facilitate growth of the national economy and control inflation, asset prices, among others. The Fed had continued to boost its money supply at exceptionally high levels amid the grim recession brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the economy recovering and even seeing steep inflation, it is now reversing the way.
