If you are holding Ethereum and want to dig in deeper in the stats about its usage, new headlines in the latest digital currency news show that more than 80% of the total circulating supply of ETH is held by 7,572 addresses.
The report went viral after it was released by the digital asset research company Delphi Digital on March 7, showing data that claims that the vast majority of ETH coins are held by addresses with a balance that is higher than 1,000 ETH.
The document also shows that the price of ETH has dropped an average of 19% lately – right after each of the past five hard forks – over the past 30 days.
Still, the most recent hard fork that occurred before last month’s Constantinople and St. Petersburg updates saw the price of ETH decrease by under 1% which the report suggests its part of the decrease in block rewards – from 5 ETH to 3 ETH.
The researchers also noted that as of March 3, more than 2.3 million Ethereum (ETH) was present in decentralized finance apps. The data showed that even 98% was staked in these apps and MakerDAO smart contracts which permit the creation and destruction of the Maker’s decentralized stablecoin named Dai (DAI).
Ethereum Network Development: The $30 Million Investment In Detail
"Over the last 12 months the Ethereum community — a global collection of developers, entrepreneurs, researchers, and passionate users — has made tremendous progress. Every week, new applications built on Ethereum launch to mainnet, scalability solutions come online, and ETH 2.0 moves closer to key milestones. Ethereum remains the de-facto platform for decentralized applications, and is used every day to secure billions of dollars in digital assets," the post noted.Speaking of, Plasma is the project that was first proposed by Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Poon in 2017 - as a scaling solution for the network employing autonomous smart contracts. The project is in the latest cryptocurrency news again as part of the Ethereum network development. It is described as a solution that would enable “the blockchain to be able to represent a significant amount of decentralized financial applications worldwide,“ according to the white paper The $30 million budget reserved for the ETH network and its development was first announced by the Ethereum Foudation at the ConsenSys' Ethereal Summit on May 10. The executive director Aya Miyaguchi was in the coming altcoin news then for stating that the foundation intends to bring academic involvement to Ethereum - which will attract the top-tier researchers and developers (and grants) to the academic teams and organizations. As we previously reported on our crypto news site, the "rerelease" of the community website for Ethereum Foundation was announced at the end of April. The Ethereum network development sits on top of this update, which purports to be a repository filled with community-created Ethereum content including documentation and tutorials for using Ethereum tools.
Cryptopia Hackers Are Moving The Funds In At Least Four Wallets
“Despite the efforts of management to reduce cost and return the business to profitability, it was decided the appointment of liquidators was, in the best interests of customers, staff and other stakeholders. […] Given the complexities involved we expect the investigation to take months rather than weeks.”As the new analysis by CoinFirm notes, the hackers are moving the cash into separate wallets including the two CoinDesk which found that were directly connected to Huobi. “The Cryptopia hacker moved 30,790 ETH (~$7.67M) from the last red address to the yellow one which is a new address of the hacker as of May 20, 2019 at 01:43:57 AM +UTC. The yellow address still has got 29,770 ETH,” said CoinFirm’s Grant Blaisdell in a statement that went viral in the coming altcoin news. Two other addresses were also reported by many best cryptocurrency news sites - showing that they received a combined 1010 ETH while another 10 ETH landed in what appears to be a Huobi deposit address and a Huobi hot wallet. This means that the Cryptopia hackers are preparing to pull cash out through these exchanges. Even though there is no telling what is exactly happening to this Ether as it moves from one wallet to another, it is certain that the $16 million is not going to sit still for long.

“These preliminary findings are consistent with the literature on stock market prices and volatility,” the report on Ethereum possession concluded. “Academics have found that large anomalous fluctuations in traded volumes of particular stocks, notably the S&P 500, tend to impact volatility and not price levels.”
