On May 31, 2020, the development team of the IOTA Foundation, the organization between the IOTA DLT infrastructure, proudly presented its newly redesigned website.

New website, new IOTA

According to the official announcement, the new website has ambitious objectives. It aims to demonstrate the cutting-edge technologies of IOTA and reflect the maturity of the IOTA Foundation.

IOTA Foundation has asked all visitors of the new website to contact developers with feedback. It was also highlighted that the new site is a milestone on the path to IOTA 2.0.

The new website has a futuristic design. It includes samples and descriptions of the main IOTA use-case solutions, such as social impact, mobility, smart cities, global trade and digital identity. Some of them were discussed in our exclusive interview with IOTA founder David Sonstebo.

Also, there are separate dashboards for different categories of guests - community members, developers and entrepreneurs - inviting them to engage, develop and innovate respectfully.

Bright prospects

The epoch of IOTA 2.0 mentioned in the announcement may refer to the post-Coordicide era of IOTA product development. Coordicide is the event of disabling the Coordinator mechanism, the last point of centralization within IOTA's distributed data storage.

As previously reported by U.Today, on April 2, 2020, IOTA published an official explanation of Coordicide. It will take five steps to make IOTA data structures fully decentralized.

Recently, the Hornet team, which develops software for IOTA nodes, announced a new release, Hornet v.0.4.0. This significantly improves upon the UX and performance of IOTA mechanisms.

This impressive announcement resulted in a 15% price rally of the IOTA token.

John Lilic leads international business development in the ConsenSys leading blockchain development studio. He is also an expert in energy markets and cryptocurrency segments. He tracked the progress of Bitcoin's (BTC) and Ethereum's (ETH) market capitalization statistics, coming up with an extravagant prediction.

Bitcoin (BTC) should get ready for parity

Mr. Lilic outlined that Ethereum (ETH) is showcasing much healthier dynamics than its competitor is. For instance, the flagship cryptocurrency still surpasses Ethereum (ETH) by 6.3x in terms of market capitalization, while simultaneously collecting 20% fewer fees than Ethereum (ETH).

Also, Ethereum (ETH) is demonstrating much more impressive price dynamics this year. It gained almost 37% against Bitcoin (BTC) in 2020. That said, Ethereum (ETH) looks severely undervalued to the top manager of ConsenSys.

However, Ether is on the path to eliminating this discrepancy. Eventually, the top two cryptocurrencies may reach market capitalization parity, concludes Mr. Lilic.

As covered by U.Today Crypto News recently, Coinmetrics on-chain research team called Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) the unique crypto behemoths that have managed to recover from Black Thursday.

Bitcoin (BTC) is losing supremacy in "fee race"

Should Ethereum (ETH) overcome its undervaluation, its price may be over $1,550 based on liquid supply and current Bitcoin (BTC) market capitalization.

Recently, it was unveiled that Ethereum (ETH) blockchain continues to surpass Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of network fees for more than 30 days in a row. Ethereum (ETH) is seeing this advantage for the first time in its history.

As U.Today Crypto News reported previously, ex-Messari analyst and angel investor Qiao Wang identifies two main catalysts of Ethereum's (ETH) price run in the mid-term perspective.
