AI the Solution to Ethereum's 'Biggest Technical Risk'

Vitalik Buterin believes AI auditing could help solve Ethereum's issues with deep-seated code bugs.

In 1983, a developer from New York City decided to buy an unnamed piece of art for $19,000, without predicting that it would be auctioned for $110 million in 2017, generating a return of 5,798 times the original investment.

This remarkable instance certainly proves the profit-making potential of investing in art. The art investment platform Masterworks offers regular investors a gateway into this very lucrative market. Masterworks operates on a model where investors can reap financial benefits upon the sale of artworks, a feat that has proven rather successful so far.

Readers of Coinpaper Digest benefit from an exclusive opportunity to join Masterworks and embark on their own exciting investment journey.

Just remember that investing carries risks, and the performance seen in the past does not guarantee future outcomes.

  • Despite Buterin's positive outlook, some community members are still a bit skeptical about AI's effectiveness in identifying code vulnerabilities in Ethereum.

Coinbase has declared that it will no longer support Bitcoin and other UTXO cryptos on its merchant platform.

  • Coinbase discontinued support for Bitcoin and other UTXO-based cryptos on its merchant payment platform due to integration challenges with new payment protocols, according to Lauren Dowling.

  • CEO Brian Armstrong assures that Bitcoin payments can still be made through Coinbase accounts and even hinted at possible future integration of the Lightning Network to improve commerce payments.

  • The decision led to backlash from the crypto community, raising concerns about its effects on Bitcoin's adoption and the restriction of options for merchants and consumers.

A misleading app called "Rabby Wallet & Crypto Solution" on the Apple App Store led to major financial losses for its users.

  • However, the potential for further outflows still exists after a judicial order allowing bankrupt crypto lender Genesis to liquidate some of its Grayscale investments.
