  1. Cryptocurrencies remain the preferred long-term investment for millenial investors. This is evidenced by the results of a survey of consulting company Edelman. According to the report, more than 25% of the polled millennials are already users or owners of digital assets. “Everyone who has cryptocurrencies told that they would like them to be acquired earlier,” said study author Deidre Campbell. 30% of respondents expressed interest in the study of cryptocurrency for the purpose of investment. Earlier studies have found that Millennials do not trust banks. For the most part, this is due to inefficient and outdated models that are not adapted to younger investors. Analysts suggest that the main cryptocurrency markets, such as the USA, South Korea and Japan, where regulated cryptobirds and payment services operate, will continue to grow rapidly. Thus, the South Korean government has already recognized cryptobirth as legitimate financial institutions and launched initiatives designed to convince young talents to pay attention to the blockchain industry. In the course of the Edelman study, 1,000 millennials aged 28 to 34 years old and 500 representatives of “generation X” aged 39 to 52 years old were surveyed.
  2. https://imgtagram.com The project, developed by Russian programmers, makes it possible to view Instagram on a computer screen and interact with the service through the official API. Prior to this, the official application was available only on iPhones and smartphones running Android, but could not grow to a full-fledged network on the Internet, the service developers say. Users log in to the site through their existing Instagram account. In addition to viewing photos, you can post likes and comments, subscribe to new friends. Also, the authors of the project launched a special section “Photo of the Day”, in which the most popular photo of Instagram users is selected in Runet, and the author of the picture has the opportunity to receive popular recognition. Unlike the mobile application, there are tag and user ratings on the site, divided into Russian-speaking and English-speaking users. Owners of the service hope that the ability to work with their Instagram profile on a personal computer through a browser will allow users to expand their creative abilities in photography.

  5. Ethereum creator Vitaly Buterin donated 300 thousand dollars in cryptocurrency to three blockchain startups, CoinDesk writes. The lucky projects that received grants for 1,000 ETH from Buterin, Prysmatic Labs, ChainSafe Systems and Sigma Prime. All of them are working on the next version of the Ethereum system - Ethereum 2.0. Sigma Prime is developing a client for Ethereum 2.0 called Lighthouse, Prysmatic Labs is working on network scalability, and ChainSafe is also developing a client for Ethereum 2.0. It all started with Twitter, where several well-known representatives of the Ethereum community discussed ways to improve the technology. In the process, many of them complained about insufficient funding, calling it the reason for the slow pace of development. In particular, co-founder of Prysmatic Labs and Google programmer Preston Van Loon wrote that even with recent grants “it’s quite difficult to put together a team for full-time work and pay them a little money, and the option of strengthening the team where it’s necessary is definitely not for us ". To which Buterin replied: “I just sent 1,000 airs. We only live once. ” In the same thread, the founder of the crypto-investment firm Mythos Capital, Ryan Sean Adams, admitted that he “loves the wildest” when venture investor Fred Wilson speaks about Ethereum and added that the project “lacks certainty in release dates and basic leadership in operational matters” . He was told by the CEO of SpankChain Amin Suleymani, saying that “Ethereum for too long (2 years) takes its leadership for granted. In order for people to continue to believe in Ethereum, he needs to strengthen the focus on scalability and speed up work on it. Act quickly or die slowly. ” The second prize went to Sigma Prime when its co-founder, Paul Houner, tweeted that his project was “recently refused on several grants.” Buterin responded by sending another thousand ethers. The third donation went to the Canadian company ChainSafe, after project manager Miker Quintin-Collins tweeted: "I literally fall through the ground if we get 100 thousand dollars at ETH!" But Buterin also could not refuse this request - he sent the money and wrote: " Waiting for results! ” Prysmatic Labs and Sigma Prime have previously participated in the Ethereum Foundation grants program. Prysmatic Labs received 500 thousand dollars in October and 100 thousand dollars in March, and Sigma Prime - 150 thousand dollars in October.

Since the beginning of the year, the value of the coin has increased by 4%, it is approaching an important mark of $ 4,000 On Thursday, January 3, the average market value of Bitcoin reached $ 3,880, over the past three days it has increased by 4%. Altcoins for the same period of time increased in price more - the share of the main cryptocurrency in the market again dropped below 52%. The Ethereum cryptocurrency rate, for example, which returned to second place in the list of the largest blockchain-based capitalization projects, has risen by 14% since the beginning of the year. In the near future, the cost of Bitcoin could exceed $ 4,000, said NewsBTC analyst Ayash Jindal. According to him, the coin needs to remain above the support level of $ 3,850 in order to continue to grow in value. If the rate of cryptocurrency begins to fall, the decline will slow down to $ 3,780, the expert is sure. To rise to $ 4,000, Bitcoin needs to rise above $ 3,900 and $ 3,930, which is quite likely, the expert says.
