“The Casper aspect of Casper, where two conflicting blocks should not be able to be finalized, seems to actually happen running and the network agrees all along what the final chain is. So that part has been totally successful,” Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s co-founder, said in a research updаte during the developers meeting.

The Proof of Stake hybrid Casper is on testnet, and has been running for a few weeks, but not without problems. The nodes apparently keep reconnecting and randomly get a flood of connections, so devs have to perform round-about hacks to keep it going.

SINGAPORE: The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) chief fintech officer Sopnendu Mohanty said he does not foresee a Lehman Brothers-like financial meltdown with Bitcoin at this point of time.

He added that as the market for digital currencies like Bitcoin continue to grow, regulators would eventually step in to apply consumer-protection regulation that will correct the hype.

Litecoin, which is an altcoin that has long been marketed as the “silver to bitcoin’s gold”, was not the most difficult thing for creator Charlie Lee to launch. He simply took the Bitcoin Core codebase, changed a few parameters (such as the block time and mining algorithm), and then posted the new creation on bitcointalk.org.

More than six years after this initial launch, this close relationship to the code found in Bitcoin Core, which is effectively the reference implementation of the Bitcoin protocol, has become one of Litecoin’s greatest strengths.

Over the past week, there’s been heightened tension around the conversation about bitcoin fees and confirmation times. Many individuals have been complaining about unconfirmed transactions and average median transaction fees, costing $31-52 USD on December 23. With bitcoin being divisible by eight decimals, many of those decimals are rendered useless as small amounts of satoshis held on wallets can never be spent unless fees subside.
