According to CryptoSlate, Metacartel Ventures partner Adam Cochran said on Twitter that the Ethereum 2.0 upgrade will almost certainly limit the supply of ETH, while increasing demand, leading to Price increased. Cochran paid special attention to two factors: 1. The supply inflation rate of ETH will be reduced by more than 50%: According to Vitalik Buterin (V God), the introduction of Ethereum 2.0 will replace the current PoW (mining) model used in blockchain, which will significantly reduce the supply inflation of ETH The rate is over 50%. 2. The basic demand of ETH will increase: As the Ethereum 2.0 blockchain is faster and more adaptable, Cochran expects that the gas demand of ETH will increase: “With the release of Ethereum 2.0, we will see a significant increase in ETH transactions, so its Business and consumer viability will also increase. Gas jams, high transaction costs, and long waiting times in DApps will disappear, even in a busy market. ” Cochran therefore concluded that Ethereum 2.0 is likely to create “the biggest economic transformation in society”.
Reddit confirmed that later this year, its token rewards will be migrated to the Ethereum blockchain. On May 13, Reddit officially announced the community points system, announcing that the feature will be launched in the “limited community” within two days. However, the reward system will not run on the test network until the fall of 2020 at the earliest. The system will not migrate to Ethereum’s mainnet until the beta test is over. The system will be first beta tested on the Rinkeby testnet, but after the migration is completed, a set of Ethereum-based smart contracts will perform transmission, distribution, and other operations that support the reward protocol, and points accumulated during this period will also be carried forward.

Chain news, Ethereum co-founder V God (Vitalik Buterin) said in an interview with The Defiant that Ethereum may become the central bank digital currency CBDC Unlicensed platform. V God also said that in a world that has lost trust in its own currency and Ethereum can make up for loopholes, Ethereum has the potential to become a global reserve currency. For DeFi applications, V God said that using tokens as a governance tool is a “wrong idea”. At the same time, when communicating with each other in the Ethereum 2.0 shard, the Ethereum DApp will inevitably lose some composability. In addition, Ethereum 2.0 Phase 0 will be launched “within a few months”.
