NASA's Kuiper Bolt object 2014 MU69 image portray lots of details

Kuiper Belt has recently been the location for NASA’s New Horizons mission, and they have been slightly looking around that area a while now. On the 1st of January this year, the Kuiper Bolt object 2014 MU69 as it was formally known was captured by a flyby spacecraft. New Horizons was said to be about 4,200 miles away at the time the image was taken.

Captured image by the spacecraft was yet the perfect shot of the object which is now called Ultima Thule. According to NASA, the image was taken by the use of a wide-angled Multicolor Visible Imaging Camera or MVIC component of the Ralph Instrument on the spacecraft. Taking a look at the official time stamp shows that the image of the Ultima was shot at 12:26 a.m. EST on the said date, which was just about seven minutes before the nearest approach to the Ultima was achieved. The team made use of a method called deconvolution to hone the image and to enhance fine details. The original image taken according to NASA had a resolution of 440-feet per pixel. The object has a huge circular feature on its smaller part which is about 4-miles across. That feature is said to give a smart idea of the size and dimension of the object Ultima Thule.

The hook turns out that, the process inclines the graininess of images that are taken at a high contrast level. Close to the top of the image, one may see the terminator, not necessarily a cyborg, rather the line where the day/night border exists. Also, when you take a closer look, you can see small pits in the surface of the object that is about 0.4-miles in the distance across.

Furthermore, NASA has included that, the series of light and dark patterns on the Ultima are of anonymous origin. Scientists are uncertain if the pits on the surface of the object are from impacts or the venting of unstable materials in the easy stages or life of the object. However, further research is being carried on the Ultima Thule by scientists.

Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange Considers Launch of Its Stablecoin

Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange Considers Launch of Its Stablecoin

The CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao in a response to a Twitter user who suggested the exchange should launch a stablecoin suggests he is considering launching one. The Twitter user said a stablecoin from Binance would become a major token on the Binance blockchain and there is no reason why the exchange shouldn’t launch one.

Binance launched its cryptocurrency Binance Coin (BNB) in 2017 and the coin has been largely successful. BNB was referred to as the new Bitcoin at some point because it was determining market direction i.e the market fell or rose as its price changed.

Binance is also the largest crypto exchange by adjusted transaction volume and has maintained that position for a long time. Changpeng Zhao’s influence in the cryptocurrency industry is so great that other exchanges could delist a token that his exchange delisted first.

This is why a stablecoin launched by the exchange can have a significant impact and probably grow faster than other stablecoins have. The recent event concerning Tether, however, may have reduced the popularity of stablecoins in the industry.

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies just like Bitcoin and XRP, only they are backed by some more stable currency such as the U.S Dollar. Tether was said to be backed by the USD thus giving it a stable value so that users can pay for goods and services without having to worry about value fluctuation. However it was discovered during the court case following the suit that only 74% of USDT is backed by the USD.

This has sent chills down the spines of cryptocurrency users when it comes to stablecoins and it might take a while for that to go away. Launching a new stablecoin at this time therefore may not be a good idea but who is to say what possibilities lie ahead of Binance’s possible new stablecoin?

The whole cryptocurrency market is just recovering from the problems caused by Tether USDT. Bitcoin is over $5,400 and Ethereum is over $160 while XRP is in the reds with Binance Coin and of course Tether USDT among the top ten cryptocurrencies. But if Binance will launch a stablecoin that brings more good to the ecosystem that bad, why not?
