Speculation surrounds Ethereum as it nears the long awaited system-wide upgrade, Constantinople. The upgrade, expected to activate Wednesday, Jan. 16, is what’s known as a hard fork — all nodes need to be updated at once to continue working together.
As the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) hard fork draws near, the crypto community is buzzing. The update is scheduled for Nov. 15, and could lead to a code split of Bitcoin Cash. That means there would be two independent BCH blockchains and two different BCH coins.
Bank of America is adding another crypto-related patent to the pile. On Tuesday the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded BoA the patent allowing them to offer a blockchain-based “hardened storage device” customers could use to store private keys.
