Ethereum turned 5 on 30th July! This milestone comes as we prepare to launch the Ethereum 2.0 multi-client Medalla testnet and ETH soars to its highest price in 2020 so far. As prices rise, so do security concerns, including Twitter falling prey to a hack that used popular accounts to scam users for Bitcoin.

Etherscan continued pushing out new features: we launched BeaconScan, the block explorer for Ethereum 2.0 validators, created a new subscription plan for APIs and made complex transactions easier to understand with Transaction Action.
