Altcoin Daily: Despite Crypto Market Downturn, Ethereum Continues to Grow In Adoption

Austin Arnold, the co-host of a popular YouTube Altcoin Daily, has recently stated that money continues pouring into Ethereum (ETH), the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, despite the crypto market price downturn.

In a new video, Arnold pointed out that developers keep building on the largest smart contracts platform irrespective of the current situation in the crypto market.

Arnold also referenced the importance of the plans announced by Ethereum-based metaverse platform, The Sandbox (SAND), to launch a $50 million accelerator found for metaverse startups.

Austin Arnold noted:

“Even though we are watching prices consolidate and decline in the short-term, the building continues…

“This is a huge injection of cash into the Ethereum metaverse, The Sandbox. Because of this, we are about to see a lot of buildings…

“This isn’t just going into The Sandbox metaverse. It’s going towards building an interoperable, open network in general.”

Zero-Knowledge (ZK) Roll-Up Technology Will Partly Boost Ethereum Scalability

According to Arnold, Ethereum scalability issues will be partly solved by zero-knowledge (ZK) roll-up technology, a scalability solution that runs computations off-chain and then submits a validity report.

He also stated that BitDAO, a decentralized autonomous organization, is launching a fund backed by big money, which he expects to further boost Ethereum’s scalability.

“ZK roll-ups make Ethereum a little more private, a whole lot more scalable, and BitDAO just launched this $200 million initiative to advance Ethereum scaling endeavors. Progress is happening…

“What about scaling? Well, BitDAO just launched a $200 million zkDAO to advance Ethereum scaling via zkSync… Major players are backing this scaling solution of zkSync through this DAO.”
