According to a research that was published by the Bank for International Settlement (BIS) which we are covering in our bitcoin news today, the problems of the major cryptocurrency can be solved only by leaving the proof-of-work system.
The arguments suggest that after bitcoin’s block rewards drop to zero because of the limited number of BTC, the network will become painfully slow and it will make the currency unusable:
“Simple calculations suggest that once block rewards are zero, it could take months before a Bitcoin payment is final, unless new technologies are deployed to speed up payment finality.”
However, in the study there is little praise for the Lightning Network as well, claiming that it could help but the real remedy for improving the network would be by saying goodbye to the proof-of-work method. Leaving the protocol would likely require a sort of coordination and possible institutionalization.
The conclusion is basically that ‘’in the digital age too, good money is likely to remain a social construct rather than a purely technological one.’’
The Bank for Institutional Settlement is basically a group of 60 central banks which account almost 95 percent of the global GDP.
BIS issued another report a few weeks ago where it was explained that nearly seventy percent of the central banks in the world are researching the option for a central bank digital currency and how to issue it. The major financial institution found a solid correlation last September between the crypto prices and the news about regulation that swamped the news platforms worldwide.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC Is On A “Slow And Painful” Way To $20,000
“We’re struck by how long it took other asset bubbles to recover their peak levels (as long as 22 years for the Dow Jones Industrials) and how pedestrian the annualized returns from trough to the recovery often are.”He also went on to add that "crypto-bull contingents should consider what happens after the bubble–not every bubble that bursts recovers the old highs," saying that he believes that the current Bitcoin price analysis shows that just like other classes, BTC faces a slow and painful path to recovery. Featured on many best cryptocurrency news sites, Dennean's statement also likened the Bitcoin price "bubble" to the 1929 Dow Jones collapse, suggesting that it might take slightly more than two decades for the dominant cryptocurrency to reach its highs in the likes of $20,000.
"The argument here is that bitcoin has gone through its bubble phase and is ready to rise phoenix-like from the ashes just as other assets and indices did in the past,"In his Bitcoin price analysis, Dennean said:
"The argument here is that bitcoin has gone through its bubble phase and is ready to rise phoenix-like from the ashes just as other assets and indices did in the past."He also compared the rapid rise and fall of the Bitcoin price and warned the public:
"Maybe crypto-bull contingents should consider what happens after the bubble–not every bubble that bursts recovers the old highs."In line with the coming altcoin news which see a lot of coins as idle, the latest Bitcoin price analysis shows that there could be a possibility for a bullish run for BTC in the future - and all of this alone gives hopes to many traders and BTC price believers.
Crypto Exchange Poloniex Starts Tether (USDT) Support
"To support both versions, our crypto exchange Poloniex will be converting a percentage of Tether currently on the Omni network to Tether on the TRON network. The amount of USDT we receive in the airdrop will be based on the amount we convert. Once the airdrop begins, Poloniex customers will be credited based on the amount of Tether they hold on Poloniex. The airdrop is scheduled to begin on April 30th and more details will be provided next week."According to the announcement which went viral in the Bitcoin and altcoin news, the development will support Tether on both chains - the USDT issued on the Omni protocol and the Tron network. The crypto exchange Poloniex also said that their decision to support the new chain is reasoned by expanded flexibility it provides to the USDT platform. In order to support the two issued versions, Poloniex will be converting a percentage of Tether which is currently on the Omni blockchain to Tether within the Tron blockchain. As Poloniex noted in the announcement:
“The amount of USDT we receive in the airdrop will be based on the amount we convert. Once the airdrop begins, Poloniex customers will be credited based on the amount of Tether they hold on Poloniex.”Meanwhile, Tether started issuing USDT on the Tron (TRX) blockchain on April 17th - and this development has been an upgrade from the Omni protocol-based USDT. As the best cryptocurrency news sites reported, this would enable users to hold and transfer the cryptocurrency through smart contracts on Tron. In December 2018, the crypto exchange Poloniex launched a dedicated offering for institutional traders and joined an increasing array of operators looking to service the institutional market. Before that, Poloniex explained then that the move had been taken in order to ensure that the exchange complies with the regulatory requirements in every jurisdiction. However, this announcement did not refer directly to any specific regulations.
