The brain behind the research backed blockchain project Cardano said ETH 2.0 proposed last year and adopted this year is not coming anytime soon, and if it does, it will likely deliver a big crypto mess, giving the Ethereum community a reason to wage war and become separated.While ETH 2.0 was proposed in 2019, researchers and blockchain experts saw the possibility of the network getting complicated with both ETH 1.0 and ETH 2.0 working as a separate token for some time.
Ethereum Classic was created after the hacking of the Decentralized Autonomous Organization, a virtual venture capital fund. In the summer of 2016, #xA0;an attacker stole $50 million in #xA0;ETH Ethereum apos;s native currency, Ether from the DAO. That was about #xA0;5% of all Ether issued at the time. #xA0;Following the attack, members of what is now the Ethereum community decided to hard fork the network and revert the illicit transactions. A hard fork involves an upgrade of a blockchain network that can incorporate major changes to the protocol.
Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency on the charts has always been considered as the first major altcoin to die. Do not take this from me, but rather from the umpteen comments on social media that have attacked the Vitalik Buterin Co founded cryptocurrency, mainly for its slow development cycles.Despite the response from the communities, Ethereum has strived solidly to make the network faster and more seamless by creating Ethereum 2.0. In a new report compiled by Chromatic Capital, users were given the run through of what they could expect from ETH 2.0 as well as the flaws in the first iteration of Ethereum.
The offending applications are Camero, callCam, and FileCrypt Manager, all three of which should obviously be avoided. The first two are masquerading as photo editing tools, while the third is pretending to be an Android file manager. In truth, they are designed to obtain root privileges on any device that downloads the apps in question. In plain terms, that means that a hacker will have full control of the device, and will have access to any and all passwords and personal information that has been stored on it. The process does not require any additional permissions once the app has been installed, so the victim is usually not aware that their device has been hacked.

He has been invited to the Capital for the exhibition Desi Oon , organised by Khamir, a platform formed after the 2001 Gujarat earthquake to preserve the crafts and heritage of Kutch. The exhibition delves into sheep pastoralism and the processes of producing indigenous wool. It acquaints visitors with the techniques of spinning, dyeing and weaving indigenous wool by bringing in weavers, spinners, dyers, designers and members from the herding community in Kutch to an urban setting. Having arrived with his range of shawls, stoles and bed covers made from native wool, Vankar Shamji, one of the leading weavers of Kutch, believes it is important to hold such events to acquaint people with native sheep wool and the processes of generating it. He says, The use of local sheep wool has dwindled and people have begun throwing it. It is compulsory to cut the hair of sheep every six months to save it from insects. If such events are held and people get to know the value of local sheep wool and the immense warmth it offers, only then this wool can be saved from being thrown away. Rana Bhai s biggest complaint is that giving land away to industries has resulted in no space for cattle to graze.A weaver from Kandherai village, Babubhai Ladhubhai Padhiyar is displaying his signature Dhabda (traditional thick blankets), made from sheep wool. These are carried by herding men to cover themselves. Each takes at least 15 days to make and weighs four kg. Padhiyar tells us that these are also used by ethnic groups such as the Rabaris and Ahirs during marriages. Before plastic became a norm, people also used these to cover themselves during rains, as water wouldn t seep through this blanket, he adds. Padhiyar is one of the few remaining weavers of Dhabda. He says, Now there is little demand and there are very few Dhabda weaving looms. My village only has two, compared to 22 looms that existed earlier. In Delhi, one of his Dhabdas, costing Rs 25,000, found a buyer as soon as the show opened.

"Once you #39;ve dived with someone and all goes well, you have this bond you #39;re not able to replicate in other situations, " she says. Hollywood Divers (the name is a work in progress) "is really about building and forging that community and creating a link between these two worlds. "
