15. Gate.io Research: The Development Status and Prospect of Layer 2 Protocol


Gate.io Research launched The Development Status and Prospect of Layer 2 Protocol. The report pointed out that:
-The barrier of the capacity expansion technology lies in the difficulty to improve the scalability of blockchain while guaranteeing its security and decentralization at the same time.
-At present, State Channels, Sidechains, and Tenfold Protocol are scaling technologies of Layer2; however, they are still underway to obtain a sufficient balance between security, decentralization, and scalability.
-Lightning Network and Plasma are two scaling solutions of State Channels and Sidechains that are respectively applied to the BTC blockchain and the Ethereum blockchain. Nevertheless, each of them is confronted with limitations while expanding its scalability.
-How to balance the relationship between the scalability and security of the BTC blockchain has become a focal point on the roadmap of Lightning Network’s development. How to achieve a rapid and easy payment channel is one of the significant routes of BTC’s development.
-Plasma requires a sophisticated technology to accomplish the security of an off-chain trade without supervision; hence, to combine the scaling solution with other schemes could make a breakthrough at an early date. For further details, please check at: https://www.gate.io/article/17440



16. Gate.io Research - Crypto ETFs: A Game Of Benefits and Risks


Gate.io Research launched Crypto ETFs: A Game Of Benefits and Risks. According to analysis, leveraged ETF trading not only brings more substantial gains in a singular market move but also causes a milder loss than margin trading with the same leveraged ratio when the market goes either way. Nonetheless, in the simulation of this research, leveraged ETF trading suffered more severe losses in a volatile market, which exceeded that of spot trading and margin trading in the same ratio. Compared with multiple ETF products in the traditional financial market, currently, the cryptocurrency market has only rolled out the leveraged ETF that is mainly centered on mainstream currencies. Besides, the crypto ETF market is still immature, along with the high handling fees as opposed to the twenty-year development of the traditional market. Given that leveraged ETFs are not suitable for a long-term hold, Gate.io research has built a VPIN model combined with the Moving Average (MA) and found that VPIN can mitigate the risks accordingly and considerably increase the benefits of ETF. However, since the crypto ETF has not yet obtained approval from a supervising organization, the policy trend will be a focus in the future.
