News of the week

The news of the week related to the crypto sector.

1- The Chinese authorities lash out against the cryptocurrencies

Once again, the Chinese financial authorities lash out against cryptocurrencies and define them against the rules.

They are repeatedly trying to stop this technology as it is too disadvantageous for them.

Already the Chinese government is in favor of cryptocurrencies and has shown it with the development of a stablecoin anchored to the Yuan.

Again according to the government, the future of blockchain has arrived, however one should not speculate on this technology.

2- The ban on youtube and metamask by google

In this week there has been a double attack by google that has not only blocked videos on youtube relevant to crypto, but blocked metamask.

The ban on youtube turned out to have been a mistake by the company instead the blocking of the ethereum wallet still persists.

The reason for the blockade seems to be still the subject of the debate being that Google does not seem to accept cryptocurrencies.

We just have to wait and how events could evolve.

3 - The Agharta hard fork will make ETC compatible with ETH

In 2020 there will be the hard fork of Ethereum classic, where it will make the crypto fully compatible with Ethereum.

Since we’ve witnessed Ethereum’s Constantinople fork in the last month, which made it ready for POS, ETC should adjust.

For ETC developers, compatibility with Ethereum is very important and is their main point.

The fork is expected to arrive around January 15, 2020 and will be called Agharta.

The development proceeds from the roadmap, and the network will always run smoothly.

That’s all for this week, I’ll wait for you in the next article.
