- Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 5 tech demo offered the first look at the potential of the next generation of consoles.
- The company just revealed it rejigged elements of Unreal Engine 5 on the basis of the PS5’s ultra-fast SSD.
- The engine has the potential to allow developers to craft experiences unique to the PS5.
There’s no doubt last month’s Epic Unreal Engine 5 demo – which ran on a PlayStation 5 (PS5) – delivered the next-gen vision. But it left lingering questions about what this means for competitor Microsoft and the Xbox Series X.
Epic was quick to strike a diplomatic note. Epic head Tim Sweeney explained that the tech underpinning the Lumen in the Land of Nanite demo would be supported on the Xbox Series X.

Glaringly absent from the CEO’s reassurances was any mention of whether the Series X could churn out similarly breathtaking graphical fidelity. In tandem, Epic gushed on about the PS5, notably the SSD.
A month later, Epic Games has now offered the clearest indication yet of which console it sways toward when it comes to getting the most out of its engine.

Bitcoin has now entered a consolidation phase within the mid-$9,000 region following the meltdown seen yesterday This has made it increasingly unclear as to which direction the benchmark cryptocurrency will trend over a mid-term time frame One analyst is calling into question the long-term strength of BTC’s multi-month uptrend due to the “V-shaped” recovery it posted in mid-March when it dipped to lows of $3,800 He eludes to the possibility that this provided the crypto with a weak foundation upon which a sustained rally can’t be built Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto market saw some calm overnight trading following the immense volatility seen yesterday. After plunging from highs of $10,400 to lows of $8,600 on BitMEX, BTC has been able to incur some buying pressure that has given it a firm standing within the mid-$8,000 region. Despite the rebound from these lows, it does appear that the cryptocurrency’s macro outlook may be somewhat weak at the present moment. This weakness stems from the fact that Bitcoin’s entire rally from the upper-$3,000 region has been built upon a sub-10 day accumulation…Jun 3, 2020
President Donald Trump has finally begun to take the coronavirus outbreak seriously. He declared a national emergency on Friday. Countries such as Italy and China taking drastic measures to combat the threat of the coronavirus. Could Trump take the unprecedented step of trying to maintain power by canceling the election? There’s been plenty of punditry about why the coronavirus outbreak could end Donald Trump’s presidency. Most of it has come from blatantly anti-Trump outlets, which are desperate to see him ousted. Too few people have considered that the opposite may be happening. The coronavirus could be the very thing that President Trump seeks to exploit to extend his stay in the White House. President Trump will go to drastic lengths to retain power America has grown so used to Trump’s rhetoric and lies that no one bats an eye when he makes yet another ridiculous statement. Remember the weeks before the 2018 midterms? President Trump claimed that every congressional Democrat had signed up to an “open borders” bill. They hadn’t, of course. With Trump bringing our expectations of a president…Mar 15, 2020
As traditional markets continue to struggle with the coronavirus crisis, cryptocurrencies are seeing an upswing in both price and volume. Now crypto traders are wondering how long this new rally will last. Bitcoin (BTC) is up 1 percent in the past 24 hours of trading, currently changing hands at $6,224 as of 19:00 UTC. The world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization may be trending below its 10-day moving average in price, but it’s still above its 50-day average, the signal of a continued upward trend. On Coinbase, prices were as high as $6,993 on the U.S. exchange over the past 24 hours. That’s an 80 percent appreciation from its lows of $3,845 on March 12, which was hit, in part, by liquidations on BitMEX coronavirus-related news. Trading since March 11 on Coinbase.

Feb 06, 2020 at 12:56 // News The altcoins are awash as Ethereum takes another bold step to move up. It has been established that once the resistance at $197 is breached, the coin would rally above $200. The market is above $200, and there are chances of reaching the next resistance at $220. Unfortunately, the coin may face another resistance above the current price level. At this moment, if the price retraces to $192 or $188, ETH is likely to bounce back. Expectantly, we should expect Ethereum to reach a high of $220. Interestingly, if the bulls performed this feat the pair will be out of the downtrend zone. Conversely, if the bulls fail to sustain the price above $200, the bears may break below $192 and $188 support levels. This will portend negatively for Ethereum. Ethereum Indicator Analysis Ethereum is trading above 80% of the daily stochastic. The stochastic bands are trending horizontally above the 80% range. The coin has found itself in the overbought region of the market. Buyers may not be on hand to push Ether…Feb 6, 2020
Facebook’s attempted foray into the crypto world certainly grabbed the world’s attention. Meanwhile, China’s intentions to launch its own stablecoin grabbed the attention of US politicians. Industry leaders are now wondering whether the US will get left behind due to its negative stance towards digital assets. Coinbase Boss: US Left Behind on Crypto Facebook’s global financial domination ambitions via its own crypto coin rattled plenty of cages. So many in fact that the project appears to have stalled already due to an avalanche of regulatory pressure and protest from concerned nations. With European Union bankers joining forces to ban the Facebook currency before it even gets off the launch pad, and the two most populous nations on the planet (India and China) already blocking its efforts, the future looks pretty grim for Libra. Add to that the departure of one of the Libra Association’s premier partners, PayPal, and it becomes pretty clear that the world does not trust Facebook with finances. Coinbase CEO, Brian Armstrong, has taken a different view in that the US should revise its ridiculously negative stance…Oct 6, 2019
Stellar-focused (XLM) crypto development company Interstellar appointed the founder of digital payments network Zelle Mike Kennedy as its new CEO. On Sept. 12, the company announced the appointment in a Medium blog post. Stellar as an international payments system Kennedy’s network Zelle is the payment system used by JPMorgan Chase, Citi, Bank of America and many other financial institutions, according to its website. It is also claimed that Zelle manages over $50 billion in transaction volumes from over 25 million users. Now, Interstellar expects Kennedy and his team to build new services for Stellar. Kennedy illustrated his ideas: “With Interstellar I see another opportunity to solve a real-world problem. Today, international payments are inefficient, expensive, and slow. Millions of individuals and businesses would benefit from solving these problems. The Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) has developed what I believe is the best blockchain based payments network, enabling fast and inexpensive international payments.” Work lies ahead That being said, Kennedy also admitted that Stellar’s ecosystem still lacks some features needed to fulfill his vision. He also noted that, in his opinion, a…Sep 14, 2019

The crypto community on Twitter has united once again in an epic troll, this time aimed at Ethereum. What began as a simple question as to why the second-largest cryptocurrency doesn’t have its own emoji turned into a hilarious movement that says the network is best described with the internet’s beloved poop emoji. A Serious Enquiry About Emojis Turns Into an Epic Troll The crypto community has never been one that turns away from a good troll, which is exactly what ensued after some unsuspecting members of the Ethereum community raised the question of emojis. Namely, the recent addition of the Bitcoin emoji to social media platforms such as Twitter have been welcomed by the industry, with many saying something as trivial as an emoji actually legitimizes the cryptocurrency and brings it closer to mainstream adoption. Therefore, it was no wonder that members of the Ethereum community began raising the question of an ETH emoji. With ETH 2.0 on the way and promises of a scalable, completely decentralized network, many believe this is the perfect time to boost its popularity…May 26, 2020
As one of five commissioners of the United States Securities Exchange Commission, Hester Peirce is at the forefront of securities regulation in the country today. Of interest to Cointelegraph’s readers, her positivity toward the future of cryptocurrencies has earned her the moniker “Crypto Mom.” Backdropped by recent efforts to update exemptions from security offering registration, as well as an ongoing tug-of-war with legislators as to how to handle crypto, Commissioner Peirce sat down with Cointelegraph to discuss recent changes in regulatory approach and what to look for in the next. New exemptions On Dec. 18, the SEC announced a series of proposed changes to their classification of “accredited investor,” a designation based on certain income and/or knowledge requirements. The basic concept of an accredited investor is a person who can fend for themselves when it comes to the risk associated with early-stage investment — which can involve sifting through murkier business practices but also higher potential rewards. Accredited investors are allowed to participate in securities offerings exempt from SEC registration requirements under Regulation D. Any change to accredited investor status…Dec 30, 2019
