What will staking ETH look like and how will users participate?
The next big step after Constantinople is the Casper upgrade, when ETH token holders will be able to stake coins. Instead of mining blocks, network participants will be rewarded for running a node and holding ETH for a fixed period.
[note: you get rewarded for holding Dacxi DAC coin too!]
Stakers will be chosen randomly from a large pool of token holders, earning rewards that are proportional to the number of ETH they hold.
Mainstream asset management company are coming into the cryptocurrency space, building the ecosystem for institutional investors. Looking forward to see what this space can contribute to the retail space.

These are Imperial and eToro set out six existing challenges that cryptocurrencies will have to address in order to become a mainstream method of payment.
What would be important to you for cryptocurrencies to become your daily mode of payment?
Scalability: many cryptocurrencies are built on blockchains that aren't designed to facilitate high volumes of transactions at present. The mining community of individual blockchains needs to prioritise solving scalability issues in order to succeed
Usability: like any invention, user-friendly design is at the core of mass adoption. Cryptocurrencies can be complex and require specialist understanding
Regulation: this is currently fragmented with different countries pursuing different regulatory routes. Without a standardised global approach to regulation, Bitcoin will struggle to gain mainstream traction

Incentives: any new financial ecosystem requires careful thinking about how its reward system will influence behaviour. If this isn't built in the right way, then the system will quickly be manipulated by some users to the detriment of others
Privacy: while blockchains provide a transparent single source of truth, different levels of privacy available to different users is often attractive. Without this, some people will stay away from cryptocurrencies
