    GMT’s downside pressure remains as an analyst calls STEPN a “hype-driven speculative frenzy.” A massive downtrend in the STEPN (GMT) prices witnessed in the last 30 days appears to be nearing exhaustion.GMT’s price has rebounded by nearly 35%—from $0.80 on May 27 to $0.99 on May 28. Interestingly, the upside retracement started after the price fell in the same range, which had acted as support before GMT’s 500% and 120% price rallies in March and early May, respectively.GMT/USD daily price chart.

Moreover, a strong upside follow-up could send the STEPN token towards the $2-2.50 area, suggesting that the market has bottomed out.Conversely, a weaker…Read More

    Multiple metaverses use various technologies to build immersive worlds. Read about the key technologies that power the Metaverse. What are the challenges of the Metaverse?Users’ cognition, emotions, and behaviors can be influenced by key technologies that enable multiple metaverses.The expensive cost of equipment is a barrier to the widespread adoption of metaverse technologies that will hopefully be overcome in the future. Morality, physical well-being, health and safety, psychology, ethics, and data privacy are the four areas of risk associated with AR.On a physical level, users’ attention being diverted by location-based AR applications has resulted in dangerous mishaps. Overloading information is a psychological problem that must be avoided. Unauthorized augmentation and fact tampering with prejudiced perspectives are moral dilemmas. Data collection and sharing with third parties is the risk with the most severe privacy ramifications.Furthermore, Metaverse actors may be enticed to collect users’ biometric psychography based on user data emotions, which could be used to make unintentional behavioral assumptions and exacerbate algorithmic bias. Nausea, motion sickness and dizziness are among the most regularly reported health issues associated with virtual reality. Due to the weight of VR headsets, head and neck strain is a limitation for longer use sessions. Social isolation and withdrawal from real-life activities accompanied by medical issues is also a challenge that hinders the mainstream adoption of the Metaverse.In addition to the above, sexual harassment again women in the Metaverse is also a big problem, as evident from a gang…Read More

    NFTs are moving into the mainstream, but this requires a streamlined and trustworthy experience for the general public’s mass adoption. Nonfungible tokens (NFTs) have been in the headlines for the past few years. While swaths of the population have tried to get their head around why NFTs exist, demand has soared, institutions have been built, and the lingo has entered our collective consciousness.There is an elephant in the room, though: NFTs are difficult to use and a majority of them are digital snake oil. But these problems create the opportunity to provide answers. The accessibility and legitimacy of NFTs are both ripe for change. As funding pours into the space, the market is starting to mature, and that change is gaining momentum. We’re entering a new era of NFTs — NFT 2.0 — where the technology will be more easily accessible by the mainstream, and the underlying value proposition of the NFTs will be more transparent and reliable.Reflecting on the rise of NFTsIn their short existence, NFTs have exploded onto the crypto scene, topping $17 billion in trading volume in 2021. This number is expected to balloon to $147 billion by 2026. Even more impressive is the fact that this volume is owned by fewer than 400,000 holders, which totals a whopping $47,000 transaction volume per user.Alongside the industry’s meteoric rise, NFTs themselves have gone through enormous changes since their inception. For example, CryptoPunks, which minted for free in 2017,…Read More

    The Terra 2.0 mainnet (Phoenix-1) went live today as per the original timeline set by Terra developers and started producing blocks. Do Kwon, the co-founder and CEO of Terraform Labs, confirmed the relaunch of Terra’s new chain, Terra 2.0, which aims to revive the fallen Terra (LUNA) and TerraUSD (UST) ecosystem. Kwon’s revival plan for Terra involves hard forking the existing blockchain and reissuing LUNA tokens to existing investors based on a snapshot before the death spiral bled the LUNA and UST markets — effectively resulting in unrecoverable losses for investors.Pheonix-1 mainnet is now live and producing blocks – public node services, wallets and explorers should be going live shortly. pic.twitter.com/cpxiNKl6aX— Do Kwon (@stablekwon) May 28, 2022 Dubbed Phoenix-1, the Terra 2.0 mainnet went live today, May 28,  as per the original timeline set by Terra developers and started producing blocks. Kwon also informed that public node services, wallets and explorers would follow the mainnet to go live soon after. Following the plan from the original proposal, which recommended issuing the new LUNA tokens to existing investors, Kown stated that users should now be able to see the newly issued LUNA tokens balances:“To view your $LUNA (or $LUNA2 as some exchanges call them) token balances, you only need to log into station and refresh the page.”Moreover, investors that are migrating over the inter‐blockchain communication protocol (IBC) are required to create a station wallet with the same ledger and follow the instructions provided…Read More
