With the price of Bitcoin increasing more than 1oo percent this year, and the price of altcoins like Ethereum and Monero even outperforming Bitcoin, 2016 was a good year for cryptocurrencies in general. Let’s have a look at how we got here!
Ethereum has successfully hard-forked, and Charlie Shrem has been released from prison.
A date has been set for the Ethereum hard-fork, and Mark Karpeles has been released on bail.
Bitcoin’s block reward has been halved, and Ethereum is moving towards a hard-fork to dismantle The DAO.
After the White Hat recue failure, Ethereum’s DAO soft fork also failed this week due to a vulnerability in the code.
