Peter Van Valkenburgh, director of research at Coin Center, disagreed.  He considered state-level regulation an inconvenience to companies and consumers. According to him, some states underprotect while others overprotect. He cited Alabama as an example: “You can get a money transmission license in the state of Alabama […] for a $5,000 bond. So a company that’s handling…

Code specifications for the first Ethereum transition phase to PoS could be prepared by the end of June. A code for the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain’s first-stage transition to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus algorithm could be completed by June 30, as stated in an Ethereum core developers meeting on May 2.
