Microsoft Expresses Interest in Blockchain Technology

Microsoft, a well-known software provider, has expressed interest in blockchain technology and announced plans to use it to combat piracy. According to research undertaken by Microsoft, a blockchain-based incentive system might be used to bolster anti-piracy initiatives in partnership with Alibaba and Carnegie Mellon University.

The proposed reward scheme for anti-piracy initiatives, dubbed Argus, will be completely transparent. It will be built on the Ethereum blockchain and provide a trustless incentive system for securing information collected from the open, anonymous community of piracy reporters.

This happened after several major technology companies expressed worry about securing their intellectual property and stated their desire to make various efforts to combat digital piracy. Although this news should boost ETH/USD values, the second-largest cryptocurrency was still under pressure.

The London Hard Fork Upgrade Underpins ETH/USD

On the other hand, it was stated that since August 5, when the London hard fork upgrade went live, around $170 million worth of Ethereum has been burned. According to the data tracking website Watch the Burn, around 52,600 ETH has been burned in just 12 days, demonstrating that EIP-1559 successfully devalued the ETH token to drive prices higher.

The recent London hard fork upgrade to the Ethereum network has enhanced the network’s capacity by around 9%, according to another analysis using Etherscan’s historical average daily gas consumed chart. Furthermore, according to recent reports out of Dallas, a sibling duo has been mining Ethereum and earning thousands of dollars every month.

According to the survey, Ishaan and Anaya Thakur used their laptops to make money, while most children used them to play video games. The Ethereum mining enterprise, which they established in their garage, brings in $32,000 each month for the brother and sister.
