Updated node software with Taproot support from the Bitcoin Lightning Network developer

Lightning Labs created the Lightning Network (LN). They also published a beta version of the Lightning Network Daemon (lnd), a fully functional implementation of the LN node that now includes support for the most recent protocol updates, such as Taproot and Musig2, among other enhancements.

The lnd software component manages several functions for the LN, including database management, payment invoice generation, and payment revocation, to mention a few. The most recent software version, lnd 0.15 beta (v0.15-beta), intends to empower developers by utilizing the most recent features of the Bitcoin network to provide solutions for new use cases.

Michael Levin, the product growth lead at Lightning Labs, stated in the announcement that more than 50 contributors helped the firm deliver its first release in 2022, adding that:

This release gives complete Taproot support for the internal lnd wallet, making it one of the most advanced Taproot wallets today. Further, this release has support for an experimental Musig2 API compliant with the latest BIP draft.”

Anchorage introduces institutional investors to Ethereum staking

San Francisco-based digital platform Anchorage Digital owns the first federally regulated cryptocurrency bank, which will provide institutions the chance to stake Ethereum (ETH). This action anticipates the long-promised switchover of the Ethereum network from the proof-of-work (PoW) protocol to the proof-of-stake (PoS) protocol.

Anchorage declared on Tuesday that it would allow institutions to participate in ETH staking, which involves being compensated for validating transactions on the Ethereum network. Co-founder and president of Anchorage Digital, Diogo Mónica, described staking as advantageous for both the ecosystem and institutional investors:

By paving the way for institutions to stake their Ethereum, we’re providing heightened legitimacy to market-tested assets–and in the process, eliminating any hot wallet risks for institutions looking to generate new earnings from crypto.”

Crypto winter ETP is 21Shares’ response to the weak market

In response to the present bear market, 21Shares, a worldwide issuer of cryptocurrency exchange-traded products (ETPs), has introduced investing instruments that are specifically geared at the coming winter. In order to provide low-cost exposure to Bitcoin (BTC) to the recent market sell-off, the business launched the 21Shares Bitcoin Core ETP (CBTC).
