The testnet activation of the Ethereum Istanbul hard fork has been officially delayed for early October, the latest cryptocurrency news show. As the community manager of the Ethereum Foundation named Hudson Jameson said, the hard fork is delayed due to a couple of reasons.
First, Jameson noted on a developers’ call that the testnet launch of the hard fork is now scheduled to take place at the start of October. As he added:
“For anyone listening in who doesn’t know how this works, we pick a block number that we estimate to be around the 2nd of October. […] However, that might be one or two days behind or forward from that date based on how fast blocks are produced between now and then.”
For those of you who haven’t been following our altcoin news, the Ethereum Istanbul hard fork has been seen as a major upgrade to the ETH network. Many sites previously reported on August 28 that Parity, which is a blockchain infrastructure company that runs the core of the Ethereum network, had already delayed the planned hard fork until September 6.
The Parity core developer Wei Tang, at the time noted that the organization needed at least two more weeks before the devs could proceed in selecting a block number for the Ethereum Istanbul hard fork.
“We need time till 6th September to finish the implementation. Not only because we accepted EIPs late but right now we just happened to be a large code base refactoring and we probably want to merge them first before merging Istanbul EIP,” he noted.
The Ethereum co-founder was also in the coming altcoin news. Vitalik Buterin recently noted that the Ethereum blockchain is nearly full, which seems to deter a new adoption by the potential Ethereum contributors.
“Scalability is a big bottleneck because the Ethereum blockchain is almost full. If you’re a bigger organization, the calculus is that if we join, it will not only be more full but we will be competing with everyone for transaction space. It’s already expensive and it will be even five times more expensive because of us. There is pressure to keeping people from joining,” Buterin added.
Antminer E3 Stops ETC Mining While ETH Has 1 Month Left
‘’E3 is related to eth algorithm, and DDR capacity is up to the upper limit, so E3 will not be able to continue mining (...) the meaning is E3 only can mine to January 2020, then will not mine again.’’2Miners calculated that Ethereum (ETH) mining will be terminated in about five weeks as it is a few epochs later than the older version. Among the first speakers within the crypto community that discussed the story was the author of Ethereum’s mining algorithm Kristy-Leigh Minehan who considered that this could lead to the launch of more capable miners. Bitmain is more focused on Bitcoin mining solutions and Mrs. Minehan suggested waiting for the release of the main competitors Canaan and Innoscilion. As per the previous reports, The hashrate is one of the metrics that can assess how healthy a network is. The higher the hashrate, the more secure a network will become and it also becomes much expensive to mine the cryptocurrency. Ethereum Classic saw its hashrate explode previously during a sign of growing strength so the ETC network is arguable now more secure than ever before.
Ethereum Core Developers Move Forward With ProgPOW Update
“I have not seen any evidence that there is an ideological or people willing to step up and actually have a network split. If I’m wrong I’ll resign as hardfork coordinator.’’Ethereum split once before with the ‘’DAO’’ which was the first attempt to a so called decentralized autonomous organization where more than 3.6 million ETH was exploited. Core developers decided to refund the affected users and the dissenters later formed Ethereum Classic in response. At least two projects were opposed to ProgPOW including SpanChain and the Gnosis projects. The executives of the projects were invited to voice their concerns about the next core developer meeting but this will likely won’t change the decision of the team: “There will be plenty of time for open dissent that won’t really change the decision, necessarily, because we’ve already gone back and forth and approved it twice.” ASIC resistance was a core consideration for Ethereum and the first version of the whitepaper explained how the distribution process of Ethereum will be performed through easily-accessible computer hardware which was more favorable for the community and the decentralization of the token. The leading mining hardware firm Bitmain developed an Ethereum ASIC in 2018 and in 2019 Canaan released an ASIC that was 5 times more efficient than comparable consumer hardware.

Enjin Goes Live On The Ethereum Mainnet: Report
“Simple, great user experience is one of the core product design philosophies at Enjin, and we made damn sure that the Web Panel is minimal, straightforward, and clean.’’The process of creating a new blockchain project is not so complex and it can be done in four steps. The process doesn’t require any coding knowledge but while the Enjin platform web panel enables the codeless creation and management of the blockchain assets, the developers will have to employ Enjin platform API and SDKs when the time will come to integrate those assets with games and apps. The platform API is graphQL based while the Platform SDKs include Java, NODEJS, Godot and Unity. According to the company, the Enjin platform will be powered by Enjin Coin and will serve as the ultimate minting resource and used to back the value of the issued blockchain assets. While the Enjin platform is a relatively new platform, the company was present in the crypto space for more than 10 years. Enjin’s huge ecosystem is preferred among gamers and with partnerships with major companies such as Unity, Samsung, and PC Gamer, the platform has a strong presence in the gaming industry. When it comes to future plans, the company said to be working on a new way to distribute blockchain assets via QR codes.
