  • Bitcoin to Die - its unavoidable. The death of crypto and the blockchain.

    All cryptocurrencies and blockchain based products will soon die a horrible death. Here is why. Bitcoin makes use of two hashing functions, SHA-256 and RIPEMD-160, but it also uses Elliptic Curve DSA on the curve secp256k1 to perform signatures. The C++ implementation uses a local copy of the Crypto++ library for mining, and OpenSSL for normal usage. Bitcoins are created as a reward for payment processing work in which users offer their computing power to verify and record payments into the public ledger. This activity is called mining and is rewarded by transaction fees and newly created bitcoins. Bitcoin transactions are encrypted and recorded in a public ledger called the block chain. The block chain is distributed; to independently verify the chain of ownership of any and every bitcoi...

    What Is It? Blockchain is a data structure that makes it possible to create a digital ledger of transactions and share it among a distributed network of computers. It has emerged as a platform allowing companies to make and verify transactions instantaneously and without the need for a central authority. When Was It Invented? In 2008, a whitepaper was posted to the Internet describing how a peer-to-peer electronic cash system without the need for an intermediary could work. Satoshi Nakamoto had just introduced the world to Bitcoin and blockchain (blockchain is the platform that enables users to transact bitcoins). There have been many attempts to confirm the identity of Nakamoto but as it stands, consensus agreement has not yet been established. How Does It Work? Blockchain is a dig...

  • Reducing bike theft with blockchain

    Ownership of electronic bikes is rapidly increasing, but unfortunately also the theft of these expensive bikes. New smart locks are on the market to remotely track and secure bikes. This provides opportunity for better theft prevention and new business models for bike rental. A better bike registration system is needed to share ownership information and that puts the bike owner in control. RDW and IBM have developed a bike registration proof of concept based on blockchain technology, called the BikeBlockchain. Bike owners can proof their ownership and report the bike stolen through the blockchain. A smart lock on the bike will register the position of the bike on the blockchain when they are locked. When a bike is stolen the police is able to see the latest position to respond instantly....

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

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).

("Skytech" pronounced) players of the applications of the chain-Block developed by SCtech (ie software suppliers dedicated to the development of applications based on the chain-blocks for the management of the supply chain) Procurement (SC) processes: document management, traceability, ancestry and finance. They are currently engaged in (POC) proof-of-concept experiments to identify SC processes will benefit most from block-based applications. These POCs also help determine business case criteria. The software components based on the block-string in the stack build on top of each other, and includes features that expand gradually: Depth of the supply chain: Using traditional two-party exchange data, applications increasingly enable participants to reach SC partners further upstream and downstream in a peer-to-peer mode. Depth of Trust: Program allows SC partners to increase their confidence in the accuracy of the data exchanged and access to data based on the need to know. Standalone execution: The more string-based block applications extends along the first two, more independent drivers, they become manual intervention. Straight-through processing is SCtech's features. The following quick overview provides an assessment of the software components in the stack chain-based stack IT supply chain. Interoperability: The first column of the stack contains software applications that enable SC practitioners to exchange data between their business and enterprise partner resource planning solutions. Likewise, the provisions of this module connect ERP with business-to-business networks (such as Ariba, Basware, GTNexus, Tradeshift, Elemica, Covisint) through which SC partners exchange purchase orders, Supplier ratings, invoices and payment instructions. Finally, interoperability with block chains ensures that applications run on a distributed public or private book infrastructure. Confidentiality: With this second module, SC practitioners are able to select the data at the individual level - that they want to share with SC partners. The selected parties must be allocated special accessibility powers and an administration grants module rights, permits and revocation authority. Document: With secure interoperability and data access granted only to authorized parties, applications can now be used to dematerialize legal documents on paper, approve and tokenize them on the chain of secure recording blocks, tracking Document exchange flows and allow the transfer of ownership. Documents include receivables, debts and invoices. Chain-based applications in this module provides digital product memory and provide proof of revenue confidence for payments to a wide range of SC participants (ie SC depth) and increased levels of trust. The exchange of documents can no longer be automated between computer systems. Track / Origin: Origin of goods requires certificates and certification documents, which is why this module is based on the previous building block for the digital document. Blocking the application-based chain designed to interact with existing paper-based documents, contracts and assets (eg, letters of credit, bills of lading) is a prerequisite for tracking the origin of goods and services Assets. Authenticity / Certification: This module of the computer stack containing software-based block chain that ensures the documents and data are original, authentic and legitimate. Peer-to-peer reputation algorithms are an integral part of this component of the stack: To minimize threats to open up the community of SC, community reputation calculated through transaction peer feedback stories, help estimate peers Credibility and predict their future behavior. Identification: The software applications of this top component ensuring SC parts are really which they say they are. The software features of this module to create and manage identities by including relevant documentation, allows participants to access that identity, and allows authority participants to request identity certificates.

You'll receive $10 in free bitcoin by signing up with this link http://bit.ly/2oesV41 Bitcoin & Etherum Storage Wallet: http://bit.ly/2o7BmgW What is Dapp Guide: (Must Read) https://blockgeeks.com/guides/dapps-the-decentralized-future/ What are Dapps you might ask? 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.

All cryptocurrencies and blockchain based products will soon die a horrible death. Here is why. Bitcoin makes use of two hashing functions, SHA-256 and RIPEMD-160, but it also uses Elliptic Curve DSA on the curve secp256k1 to perform signatures. The C++ implementation uses a local copy of the Crypto++ library for mining, and OpenSSL for normal usage. Bitcoins are created as a reward for payment processing work in which users offer their computing power to verify and record payments into the public ledger. This activity is called mining and is rewarded by transaction fees and newly created bitcoins. Bitcoin transactions are encrypted and recorded in a public ledger called the block chain. The block chain is distributed; to independently verify the chain of ownership of any and every bitcoin amount, each network node stores its own copy of it. Approximately six times per hour, a group of accepted transactions, a block, is added to the block chain, which is quickly published to all nodes. This allows bitcoin software to determine when a particular bitcoin amount has been spent, which is necessary to prevent double-spending in an environment with no central authority. Whereas a conventional ledger records the transfers of actual bills or promissory notes that exist apart from it, the block chain is the only place that bitcoins can be said to exist in the form of unspent outputs of transactions.

What Is It? Blockchain is a data structure that makes it possible to create a digital ledger of transactions and share it among a distributed network of computers. It has emerged as a platform allowing companies to make and verify transactions instantaneously and without the need for a central authority. When Was It Invented? In 2008, a whitepaper was posted to the Internet describing how a peer-to-peer electronic cash system without the need for an intermediary could work. Satoshi Nakamoto had just introduced the world to Bitcoin and blockchain (blockchain is the platform that enables users to transact bitcoins). There have been many attempts to confirm the identity of Nakamoto but as it stands, consensus agreement has not yet been established. How Does It Work? Blockchain is a digital ledger of transactions shared among a distributed network of computers (known as the distributed ledger). When someone wants to add a block of data to the ledger, network participants with copies of the existing blockchain run known algorithms to evaluate and verify the proposed transaction. If the majority of nodes (computers) agree the transaction appears valid and the identifying information matches blockchain history, the transaction is approved and a new block added to the chain. 1. A wants to send item C to B. 2. The transaction is referred to as a block and is broadcast to the network. 3. Network participants run known algorithms to evaluate the transaction. 4. If the transaction is valid, the network approves the transaction. 5. The block is added to the chain (a record of the transactions). 6. B receives item C from A. Numbers & Statistics Blockchain is in its infancy but business has been quick to realise its potential. A 2016 Greenwhich Associates survey found financial and technology markets would invest over $1 billion in blockchain for the year and in a poll of UK fintech leaders, 37% believed blockchain presented the greatest opportunity for fintech disruption. Underpinning the forecast growth of blockchain is peer-to-peer lending, an industry with an estimated 2025 worth of $1 trillion (Statista). Furthermore, Accenture has nominated 2025 as the year when the widespread adoption of blockchain becomes mainstream. A symbiotic relationship? Pros & Cons When blockchain was first conceptualized, it didn’t take long for its benefits to be identified. Advocates pointed to the technology being a secure and transparent way to digitally track asset ownership, speed up transactions, cut costs, lower the risk of fraud, and enable the growth of the Internet of Things. Conversely, blockchain faces many challenges, most notably finding an agreement on common network protocol and technology stacks, system complexity, regulatory obstructions, cybersecurity threats, privacy concerns, and the potential threat of realizing another Dot.Com-like boom to bust failure. The Future Imagine living in a world where an incorruptible platform enables tamper-proof electronic electoral voting, a world where the democratization and expansion of global financial systems leads to more frequent and efficient trading. The potential to electronically initiate and enforce contracts, establish digital content proof of ownership, and digitally record both movement and ownership of property and assets. These are just some of the possibilities a blockchain future affords. Final Thoughts Society is built on the presumption of trust. Trust is a contract between two parties and can only be realised if both sides deliver on that agreement. Blockchain offers the potential to secure voting systems, enforce smart contracts, transform industries, and help drive the global economy by providing stronger protections against corruption and exploitation. Blockchain is a technical innovation whose very existence is predicated on the establishment of trust. As the world becomes increasingly connected, blockchain may emerge as a catalyst driving the enormous potential of our inevitable digital future. For more information visit: http://www.hajduk.com.au

Ownership of electronic bikes is rapidly increasing, but unfortunately also the theft of these expensive bikes. New smart locks are on the market to remotely track and secure bikes. This provides opportunity for better theft prevention and new business models for bike rental. A better bike registration system is needed to share ownership information and that puts the bike owner in control. RDW and IBM have developed a bike registration proof of concept based on blockchain technology, called the BikeBlockchain. Bike owners can proof their ownership and report the bike stolen through the blockchain. A smart lock on the bike will register the position of the bike on the blockchain when they are locked. When a bike is stolen the police is able to see the latest position to respond instantly. Insurance companies can automate their claim handling processing through a smart contract running on the blockchain.
