After Vitalik published his first tweet about leaving Ethereum and focusing on Verge 2.0, another one of his tweets emerged from the internet, with Vitalik standing in front of Justin Sun’s picture. As per the caption, Buterin apparently admits that the Ethereum-Tron battle has been lost: Justin Sun was named as the One who will take the world into the decentralized future.

Zcoin rebrands to the first ever Unnamed coin

The privacy-centered Zcoin platform seems to have opted for going totally private, and is thus giving up any names so customers’ transactions would not be traced even by the most state-of-the-art blockchain experts using the best DLT tracing software.

The company has posted an article on their blog, saying that the coin has now come as close to being invisible as possible for any decentralized digital asset. The coin from now on has no name or logo, so anyone wearing a blank-white T-shirt could be suspected of being its user.
