The link between social media and cryptocurrency pricing

As we emerge from a challenging two years of ‘pandemic living’ – in and out of lockdowns, physical distancing, home schooling and restrictions on social gatherings – it comes as no surprise that young Australians are more reliant than ever on social media for entertainment, information and social connection.

One of the concepts at the very heart of the blockchain world is “decentralization.” It refers to the transfer of control and decision-making from a centralized entity (one individual, one organization, or one authority) to a distributed network. To many people, this might sound chaotic, but the strength of the concept lies in its simplicity – through decentralization, no single person or group has control. Rather, everyone in the network collectively retains control.

It’s no secret that achieving outsized returns with a traditional asset management approach has become more and more difficult in recent years.

What is Ethereum 2.0?

Ethereum 2.0 (also known as ETH2) is a significant upgrade to the Ethereum network. It’s intended to help the Ethereum network expand while also improving security, speed, and efficiency.
Ethereum 2.0 and Ethereum 1.0 are coexisting as of early 2021, although the original blockchain will eventually combine with the ETH2 blockchain. (If you own ETH, you won’t have to do anything; your ETH 1.0 holdings will be automatically transferred to the ETH2 network.) The transition to ETH2 began in December 2020 and will take two years to complete.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a decentralised blockchain technology that creates a peer-to-peer network for securely executing and verifying smart contract code. Participants can transact with one another without relying on a trusted central authority. Participants have full ownership and visibility of transaction data since transaction records are permanent, verified, and securely distributed all across the network. User-created Ethereum accounts are used to send and receive transactions. As a cost of processing transactions on the network, a sender has to sign transactions and are only able to spend Ether, Ethereum’s native coin.
