    Why cryptocurrency could destroy the Banking Cartels http://vc.digicoinpro.com/jmangan One of the greatest inventions that has great potential to empower the people of the world is cryptocurrency (e.g., Bitcoin, OneCoin ). In my opinion, cryptocurrency is one of the most important and greatest inventions since the Internet. The Internet has played a very big role for helping free humanity, because it has allowed us to freely spread information throughout the world faster than ever before. One of the first steps to freeing humanity is to educate people about the truth. The Internet has been very effective at doing this.

  • Trent McConaghy: Rewiring the Internet for Ownership with Big Data and Blockchains

    When it comes to ownership, the internet is broken. Artists, designers, and other creatives can share their work easily on the internet, but keeping it as "theirs" and get fairly compensated has proven difficult. How do you "own" something when bits can be copied freely? It turns out that visionaries of hypertext foresaw this issue in the 60s. They even proposed systems to handle this. However, those systems were too complex and hard to build. By the early 90s, the simpler WWW had won, but unfortunately in its simplicity it left out attribution to owners. We ask a new question: can we retrofit the internet for ownership? It turns out the answer is yes, with the help of python-powered big data, machine learning, and the blockchain. First, we crawl the internet and create a large scale crawl...

This video https://youtu.be/eXJHPDs4M3Y provides an easy to understand introduction to Blockchain Technology. Please leave comments and questions below the video. Here is the full transcript for your convenience: What is a Blockchain? A Blockchain is a distributed database that multiple parties share and everyone can trust. A Blockchain network provides a mutually trusted, transparent way of sharing and transacting. Each party participating in a Blockchain network maintains their own copy of the database. What makes Blockchain secure? Transactions on the database are atomic (this means that they're processed one at a time). The next transaction will be a different write or a read, but only after the preceding transaction has completed (or failed). Each write to the database is considered a ‘block’. Each new block contains a cryptographic hash (a unique fingerprint) of the previous block, creating a chain that can always be validated by checking the hashes back to the original root block. Before a block can be committed, all participants are required to validate the transaction and provide consensus that the block can be added to the chain. This effectively makes it impossible to add a record unless all parties participating in the blockchain agree the record is valid. Because all records are chained together by their hash value, once committed to the chain, all records are immutable (they cannot be changed). It is impossible to alter a previous record without altering every party’s copy of the chain. If one node is compromised, then it can no longer participate in the chain until it regenerates the true chain from the other participants. How does Blockchain prevent double spending? A major challenge of digitising assets is the potential to spend/redeem/use an asset multiple times. Because digital assets are much easier to forge than many traditional assets (such as currency, tickets, physical coupons, etc.), a secure system is required to ensure that an asset is only used once. With Blockchain, every time an asset is used or consumed, the owner of the asset signs the transfer with a private cryptographic key. This key is unique to the owner and is extremely difficult to forge. In order to initiate the transaction, the transferrer requires both the asset and their private key. The Blockchain will check both the validity of the key, and ownership of the asset. Therefore, even if the asset is cloned, it cannot be used without the private key. Once the transaction has been committed to the chain, the owner of the asset will have changed. This means, each node that receives a second transaction requesting transfer of ownership (or redemption, etc.) will see that there was a previous transaction that already transferred the asset and will reject that transaction. This prevents a second transfer block from being added to the chain. How does Blockchain ensure privacy? Personal data and identifiers are not required to be stored in the chain. Such data is stored as a hash value which provides both anonymity and security. The user may provide data such as their name, telephone number, email address, Facebook account id, unique user name, password etc. (in reality a combination of these values is used) to determine their identity. This data is hashed to provide a unique token that can only be recreated by providing the original values, and only this hash is stored to identify the party in the chain. Since it is impossible to obtain the input values by reverse engineering a hash value, the user is practically anonymous to all parties within the chain. But, they can be validated whenever required by providing the original values used to create the hash. How is PassKit utilising Blockchain? PassKit provides a private blockchain service to parties that wish to issue, record or redeem anything of value. This can be anything from loyalty points, punch card programmes, event tickets, boarding passes, to government identification, insurance policies or claim histories, tax records and educational transcripts. We utilise existing mobile wallet technology as a gateway for transacting, validating or querying our secure, private Blockchain networks. We ensure that mobile wallet content can be validated and trusted in a frictionless, realtime manner, by both consumers and by the businesses and institutions with whom they transact.

In other words, we can securely trade cryptocurrency in a peer-to-peer method without relying on a bank to make sure the transaction is accurate and secure. These features of cryptocurrency are the reasons why it has great potential to destroy the Banking Cartels and bring financial power back to the people. http://vc.digicoinpro.com/jmangan

Hello! Welcome to this 3 minute introduction to Blockchain technology. In this video, we will look at what a Blockchain is, what it can do, and some of its applications. So, what is Blockchain? Blockchain is a trustless, secure, de-centralized database, that maintains an unalterable list of transaction groups, called blocks. What does that mean? Blockchain is a database that stores transactions. In this regard, it is no different than any other traditional database. It stores records with timestamps - in other words, it is a digital ledger. Blockchain is secure. Each block in the Blockchain contains a unique number, or "hash". Any node on the Blockchain can calculate this hash, verifying the integrity of each block, making it tamper proof. Blockchain is de-centralized. Unlike traditional databases, it is not owned by one entity. Any person can contribute time on their computer, or "node", to host a subset of the Blockchain. Blockchain is trustless. Most financial transactions between two entities, require a trusted third entity to maintain a ledger, such as a bank or a credit-card provider. Since everyone on the Blockchain has a copy of this ledger, the services of a trusted third party are no longer required. So, why is Blockchain disruptive? Here's a quote from a Goldman Sachs analyst: “With Blockchain, there’s potential for the disruption of middlemen, as well as reduction in the billions of dollars in administrative costs that exist today.". Since Blockchain eliminates the need for a trusted third party to maintain transaction ledgers, it takes aim at the foundations of capitalism's institutions, such as governments and banks. Let's look at some of its potentially disruptive applications. Crypto Currencies. By adding a mechanism for regulating the creation of transactions, a Blockchain can support digital currency, that can be exchanged and traded globally, without the control of a state backed central bank. Bitcoin is the most prominent crypto currency at present, with an estimated market cap of 14 billion US dollars. Asset ownership. Blockchain can be used to track titles for assets, such as artwork and real estate, in particular. Interest in using bitcoin for real estate titles has been expressed in Honduras and Greece, since having clear property rights can spur investment and job creation. Smart contracts. Many recent Blockchains such as Ethereum, also host computer programs that automatically respond to events based on rules. This makes it possible to create an infinite variety of smart contracts, some of which can automatically settle bids in auctions, transfer dormant funds, or run a de-centralized lottery. That's it for this video. Hope you enjoyed it. Thank you!.

Imagine having your car working away, transporting passengers while you’re at work. Imagine having your computer utilising its spare capacity to serve businesses and people across the globe. Imagine being paid for browsing the web and taking ownership of your, arguably invaluable, attention. Imagine the world like that. That world is not far away. A paradigm shift in the way we view software models is approaching. When Bitcoin, the first cryptocurrency, made us reassess our definition of Store of Value (SoV), it also revealed a sneak peek of the future: a world running on decentralized applications (Dapps). These distributed, resilient, transparent and incentivized applications will prove themselves to the world by remapping the technological landscape. Dapps And The Decentralized FutureSave Understanding Blockchain Before we can even fathom what Dapps do, we need to be familiar with its underlying technology—the blockchain. Put simply, a blockchain is a ledger of records organized in ‘blocks’ that are linked together by cryptographic validation. It is a digital storage of consensus truth. The key is to understand that this ledger is neither stored in a centralized location, nor managed by any single entity, hence its distributed-ness. The block validation system results in new transactions being added irreversibly and old transactions preserved forever for all to see, hence its transparency and resilience. Open-source software that leverage on the blockchain technology are called Dapps. Save The Birth of Decentralized Applications As the concept is still in its infancy, there might not be one definition of what a Dapp is. However, there are noticeable common features of Dapps: Open Source. Ideally, it should be governed by autonomy and all changes must be decided by the consensus, or a majority, of its users. Its code base should be available for scrutiny. Decentralized. All records of the application’s operation must be stored on a public and decentralized blockchain to avoid pitfalls of centralization. Incentivized. Validators of the blockchain should be incentivized by rewarding them accordingly with cryptographic tokens. Protocol. The application community must agree on a cryptographic algorithm to show proof of value. For example, Bitcoin uses Proof of Work (PoW) and Ethereum is currently using PoW with plans for a hybrid PoW/Proof of Stake (PoS)5 in the future. If we adhere to the above definition, the first Dapp was in fact Bitcoin itself. Bitcoin is an implemented blockchain solution that arose from problems revolving around centralization and censorship. One can say Bitcoin is a self-sustaining public ledger that allows efficient transactions without intermediaries and centralized authorities. The Ethereum Network While both Bitcoin and Ethereum may be loosely defined as Dapps aimed at solving real-world problems, Ethereum has a much bigger plan in mind. In Ethereum’s white paper, it was stated that the intention of Ethereum is to create an alternative protocol for building decentralized applications with emphasis on development time, security, and scaling. You may think of Ethereum as, for the lack of a better analogy, the Mother of Dapps. Armed with its very own language, Solidity, Ethereum enables developers to form smart contacts using the Turing-complete Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). With these tools available, developers made Dapps that have real-life use cases, ranging from asset management to resource planning. Examples of successful Ethereum-based Dapps that have achieved millions of dollars in market cap include Golem, Augur and Melonport. As I mentioned in my previous post, each of them aspires to rewire the economy using blockchain technology, and move us a step closer to a decentralised world.

In the coming years, Blockchain, the technology behind crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, will inevitably and radically change the role of traditional trusted parties such as banks, accountants, notaries, and governments. The animated video about Blockchain and Bitcoin that was released today on http://bitcoinproperly.org is the first to specifically address the technology behind Bitcoin: the Blockchain. Within five minutes, it is explained how the essential functions of the “trusted third party” can be automatized through the Blockchain as well as what the implications of this are. From Bitcoin hype to Blockchain revolution: an internet of trust. With the arrival of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, everyone around the world can trade with each other without any involvement from traditional third parties such as banks, notaries, accountants, and governments. Trade is a fundamental pillar of our economy and society, and traditional trusted parties play a crucial role in this. The technology behind Bitcoin making all this possible – the Blockchain – ensures that the essential functions of the “trusted third party’, are fully automatized through the internet. This way, these functions are as freely available, accessible, and programmable as the internet itself. The animated video, available in both Dutch and English, explains how this works, also mentioning practical applications. The implications are clear: in the coming years, the role of the traditional trusted parties will inevitably and drastically change, strongly impacting our daily lives. The creators of this animated video invite its viewers to think about and discuss the fundamental and radical innovations made possible by crypto currencies. Rutger van Zuidam founder of Dutchchain, organizer of the Dutch Blockchain Hackathon: “The Netherlands have all the assets to become Europe’s Silicon Valley of financial technology. It is possible for the Netherlands to position itself favourably in comparison to the US and UK, who are currently still ahead. The technology behind crypto currencies like Bitcoin plays an essential role in leveraging these opportunities. We hope that the animated video about the technology behind crypto currencies will positively affect this development.” Lykle de Vries: ”Bitcoin is not the new money for internet,but it is the new internet for money, value and ownership in all forms. Crypto currencies like Bitcoin are the next step in the emancipation of all world citizens, and can help create a new dynamic for democracy, society and economy.” About the creators The animated video is a non-profit initiative by designers Patrick Loonstra (www.patrickloonstra.nl) and Sebas van den Brink (sebasvandenbrink.nl) and entrepreneurs Lykle de Vries (ThesisOne.com) and Rutger van Zuidam (DutchChain.com).

This video is a demonstration of the Ethereum Blockchain solution developed by our team for the Blockchain Virtual GovHack. The demonstration shows the multiple Ethereum nodes built for a solution that allows for UAE Property Title Deeds to be stored on a Government Land Registry. The solutions caters for asset ownership transfer from Property Seller to Buyer, approved via the Land Department and demonstrates possible integration with other Government entities like DEWA. We developed this Blockchain solution in less than 4 weeks specifically for the hackathon, and leveraged the Makani API to get GPS location data for properties. We also utilized an IPFS document management platform to store documents like the EmiratesID, Title Deed document, Tenancy Contract and Ejari Certificate against the hashed reference pointer for each property.
