Graphene surprises researchers yet again: a strange melting behaviour has been observed, when melted graphene seems to form linear chains.
This new discovery has been found out by a team of physicists from MIPT (Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) and HPPI RAS (Institute for High Pressure Physics RAS), that compared several computer models trying to find matching simulation outcomes.

Yuri Fomin and Vadim Brazhkin used two methods: classical molecular dynamics and ab initio molecular dynamics. The latter accounts for quantum mechanical effects, making it more accurate. The downside is that it only deals with interactions between a small number of atoms on short time scales. The researchers compared the obtained results with prior experimental and theoretical data.

The researchers found the existing models to be highly inaccurate. It turned out that comparing the results produced by different theoretical models and finding overlaps can provide an explanation for the experimental data. As far back as 1960s, the graphite melting curve was predicted to have a maximum. Its existence points to complex liquid behavior, meaning that the structure of the liquid rapidly changes on heating or densification. The discovery of the maximum was heavily disputed, with several studies confirming and challenging it over and over….


The new commodities: the hemp

The hemp is rather a collection of a family of plants consisting of sativas, indicas, and ruderalis. It is one of the oldest plants cultivated in history, known for its textile fiber.

New research suggests hemp batteries are even more powerful than lithium and graphene. The hemp is applied  : industrial, clothing, food, and paper, but new research suggests hemp batteries are even more powerful than lithium and graphene. Smith began by observing a Volts by Amps curve of both the hemp and lithium batteries. Surprisingly, the power underneath the hemp cell was a value of 31 while that of the lithium cell had a value of just 4….

The stablecoin

Stablecoin is a term used to describe currency meant to hold stable values. Currencies pegged to a stable asset are not a new concept. In fact, many modern currencies were tied to gold for decades. But lately this term is back to its popularity with the cryptocurrencies where Stablecoins are coming out like mushrooms in the wood.

The most famous one, in positive and negative, is Tether that is a blockchain based asset meant to trade for $1 USD. Tether is a “price-stable cryptocurrency” that is “pegged” to the U.S. dollar.

The main reason stablecoins are back are:

  • In the cryptocurrency world, it isn’t always easy to circulate dollars due to regulations and restrictions in some countries. The crypto market has been volatile historically.
  • Any cryptocurrencies could have fluctuations of 10–20% in a day, like #bitcoin and #ether and therefore it is quite risky for any application which requires a low threshold of volatility to be viable on a blockchain, as for example consumer loans.

“How can a currency have stability? stability is relative!”

That’s completely true!!! All the stablecoins are ‘stable’ in the crypto world or until you don’t convert them into a #FIAT. 

Let’s see a simple example: 

Buy 1 stable coin = 1$ (i.e. while exchanging rate 1$ = 0,86€)

after a month I sell 1 stablecoin but now the exchange rate is 1$= 0,96€ when I’m converting into FIAT

therefore I’m going to loose money or in anyway purchasing power, one shouldn’t assume their stablecoin is as stable as cash in the long term.
