    Aventus Network - From Ethereum to Polkadot

    Aventus Network - From Ethereum to Polkadot

    Alan Vey is co-founder and CEO of Aventus Network a user-friendly, interoperable blockchain for enterprises.
    Why you should listen The Aventus Network (AvN) began as a layer-2 blockchain protocol that brings scalability, lower costs, and speed to Ethereum transactions. It enables digital asset issuance, management, and ownership, bringing the scale of permissioned blockchains and the security and interoperability of public blockchains — without the shortcomings of either.
    Aventus is now focused on interoperability - Alan says “The blockchain industry is rolling out much like the internet did, where there was siloed value in various intranets which, when connected up by the internet, led to an explosion in value through the network effect. Blockchain is the same today. Various layer 1s and 2s all need to be connected so value can seamlessly transfer everywhere across the internet of blockchains.
    In August Aventus won a Parachain slot on Polkadot and now Aventus users can easily deploy across Ethereum and Polkadot. The Aventus mission is to enable companies in any ecosystem to capitalize on a vast series of use cases – including NFTs, video games, loyalty schemes, event ticketing, supply chain provenance, and cargo management – via enterprise-grade modular architecture and future-proof themselves via blockchain interoperability.

    The Merge - Celebrating Ethereum's Transition

    The Merge - Celebrating Ethereum's Transition

    It’s merge week - the week that Ethereum will finally transition from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. The Ethereum foundation says that the Merge will be ‘the most significant upgrade in the history of Ethereum.’ The switch to PoS will replace energy-intensive mining, and instead secure the network with staked ETH.  
    Why you should listen The Merge represents the joining together or ‘merging’ of the execution layer, Ethereum as we know it today, with a consensus layer called the Beacon chain. The Beacon chain uses a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus model that will replace the current Proof-of-Work (PoW) model that the mainnet currently uses. The switch to PoS will replace energy-intensive mining, and instead secure the network with staked ETH.  
    The merge is set to cut the emission rate of Ethereum by 90% (according to some analysts). PoS makes securing the network much cheaper than with Proof-of-Work because PoS validators are paid far less than PoW miners. Calculations from some analysts suggest that the inflation rate cut to Ethereum will be the equivalent of “three Bitcoin halvings”.  
    Bitcoin bulls generally tout the halving as a powerful bullish tailwind and often focus on investing for around 4 years. If Ethereum bulls are right then the PoS transition will be 12 years of halving cycles in a single event.
