Buz Investors Status Introduces CommitETH The development team behind Status, the leading mobile decentralized web browser for Ethereum, is pleased to introduce CommitETH, a tool designed to foster open source software development. Our hope is that CommitETH will not only create stronger incentives for developers to get involved with open source projects, but also provide greater utility to app tokens, and provide token holders with direct say in the development direction of projects in the ecosystem.

As the web continues its shift towards decentralized business models powered by blockchains and protocol tokens, CommitETH will play a vital role in the evolution of their governance models and decision-making processes.

Status Introduces CommitETH

With CommitETH (https://commiteth.com/), holders of ETH, and soon ERC-20 tokens will be able to directly stake their holdings to drive the development of new features, the priority of bug fixes, and the implementation of integrations with other decentralized applications. This will have the impact of maximizing network effects and developer mindshare, expediting the rate of innovation and evolution across the Ethereum network as a whole.

At Status our mission is to make the decentralized web easy to access and interact with for all. The release of CommitETH marks the first step towards a decentralized organizational structure, by establishing a mechanism that will democratize our development, leading to a product created for the community by the community, something far more useful than we could build on our own.

The first release runs on the Ropsten Testnet, and developers and open source communities are encouraged to experiment and provide feedback.

Mercedes-Benz Sub-Brand for Electric Models to Start with 310-Mile EV

  • With the continued strong sales of Tesla showing that luxury EVs are more than a blip in the market reserved for geeky engineers, tech moguls, and the Hollywood crowd,
  • Mercedes-Benz is now amping up its plans to produce a long-range electric vehicle to compete with the Silicon Valley automaker. And, based on recent reports, that will be only the first of an entire sub-brand of electric cars
  • Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Mercedes-Benz’s parent company, Daimler, said in June that the automaker was planning an electric car for the Paris auto show in October. This model is expected to be a direct rival to the Tesla Model S

Mercedes-Benz Was an Early Tesla Lifeline

With battery costs falling rapidly, and continued strong interest in electric cars—just look at the reception for Tesla’s Model 3 and its 373,000 current reservations—Mercedes-Benz is now looking at EVs as a viable business within the next five to 10 years. “It is very important to get the right timing,” Zetsche said last month in an analysts’ call regarding second-quarter financial results. “As a tendency, and as a trend, we have become more bullish in that regard.”

It’s worth remembering that Mercedes-Benz hasn’t exactly been unaware of Tesla; rather, it’s been invested in (and somewhat allied with) the company for years. Parent company Daimler owned a nearly 10-percent stake in Tesla Motors beginning in 2010, though its remaining four-percent stake was sold in 2014. It has purchased Tesla batteries for the B-class Electric (now called the B250e), and Tesla developed the entire propulsion system for an early version of the Smart Electric Drive (ED).

That old partnership could be useful if Mercedes-Benz decides to negotiate for access to one Tesla advantage: Its network of Supercharger fast-chargers. BMW (with Nissan) and Volkswagen have made significant investments into installing more fast-chargers in the U.S., but it’s been slow going, and they’re neither as convenient, as ideally spaced, nor as uniform as what users find with the Supercharger network.

Mercedes-Benz’s efforts with pure electric vehicles in the U.S., thus far, have been tepid. In addition to the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive, the automaker offers only the B250e, which remains a limited-volume, special-order vehicle.
