Crypto News: XRP Receives Shout-Out From Fortune, Ethereum Upgrade Goes Live And Monero Highlights Privacy & Code Improvements

This year seems to be going better than expected in the crypto space with various movements from the most important projects that trigger excitement and enthusiasm.

Not to mention the fact that we’re getting closer with each passing day to mainstream adoption.

Here’s the latest on Ethereum, XRP, and Monero (XMR).

Ethereum’s Constantinople upgrade is live

After having to postpone its Constantinople upgrade, Ethereum’s much-awaited move has been finally made.

The hard fork was initially set to activate back in January, but you may recall that there’s been a delay due to some concerns about a potential vulnerability that was affecting the smart contract security.

This upgrade has been designed to boost the network’s efficiency, and it will reduce the block rewards for miners by one third.

This means that they will earn 2 ETH instead of 3 for powering the network and validating all the transactions that are taking place on it.
