Fees On Ethereum Chain, DeFi Tokens, CBDC In Bahamas, DLT and Filecoin, Other Crypto News
The crypto world has been expanding during recent years and there is lots of news to follow. This article is dedicated to DeFi Tokens And Transaction Fees on Ethereum
Ethereum users as well as ETH holders may have a reason to finally celebrate - the median transaction fees within the Ethereum blockchain system have dropped significantly. While it may be a reason for ETH holders to celebrate, DeFi users have a reason to worry.
As you may already know, the median fee on September 2nd was 8.48 USD which is an extremely high price. Today, the median fee for a transaction has dropped to 1.3 USD.
Even though it was mentioned that DeFi users won't benefit from such a drop, there is one particular project that may return some hope. The Aave platform (lending system) has introduced a new platform for governance that will allow all the users within the community to vote whether they like to upgrade the LEND tokens to AAVE.
This interesting proposal is supposed to make AAVE the new token for governance within the Aave system. It is stated that 1 AAVE token will be equal to 100 LEND tokens which seem to be a great way to persuade users to vote for upgrading.
Spadina Ethereum 2.0
The Spadina Ethereum 2.0 went live several days ago, on September 29. It has been announced that Spadina Ethereum is a test network (a mainnet-configuration network), and it is supposed to be operating for 3 days parallelly to another network called Medalla (launched back in August 20202).
Due to the statement of the developer of the project, the idea behind it is to give developers another chance to go through such difficult parts as genesis and deposits right before everyone reaches the mainnet.
