Enterprise Ethereum Alliance Announces Three New Working Groups

It has been a while since we last heard from the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. Although this entity has made a great impact already, it’s always good to learn about new initiatives. It seems the group is now focusing on three new areas of interest. Digital identity, energy, and multiplatform working groups have been established to explore new opportunities. It’s an interesting development for the EEA, as blockchain technology can make a big impact in all of these areas. An Exciting New Venture for the EEA It has been a pretty good year for the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance. This initiative launched not long ago and has quickly become the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. With support from several dozen members across various industries, no one can deny the interest in both blockchain and Ethereum technology has never been greater. It will be interesting to see […]

What is Hashgraph and Could it Replace Blockchain?

What is Hashgraph and Could it Replace Blockchain? Blockchain technology is revolutionizing many aspects of how we do things and how we are likely to do things in the future. Although primarily used for the well known Cryptocurrency Bitcoin, blockchain can be used for so much more than just currency, whether it be for supply chains or smart contracts it has a whole range of use cases which will transform many industries. However in most cases, applications are being built around blockchain as it is, without considering developing a new ledger based solution inspired by blockchain. However why should we assume blockchain in it’s current form is the only way, maybe consensus can be reached more efficiently using something slightly different to blockchain? Well many believe Hashgraph is a far better solution for creating immutable, highly secure and scalable distributed […]

XRP Price Surpasses $1 for the First Time in History

Although the opinions on Ripple and their XRP asset may still be somewhat divided right now, it is evident this particular project is doing something right. Over the past few weeks, we have seen the XRP price rise to $0.70 and last night to more than $1. No one expects to see the XRP price hit such highs this year, but it is evident no project should be ignored in the world of cryptocurrency and digital assets. XRP Price is Setting new Records As the year 2017 is almost coming to a close, we will see some more fireworks in the cryptocurrency industry moving forward. Whereas the Bitcoin price is no longer breaking records right now, most altcoins are appreciating in value over the past few weeks.

Korean and Japanese Officials: Virtual Currencies Are Not Proven

Yesterday, top financial officials in both Japan and South Korea came to a similar conclusion: as they stand now, cryptocurrencies cannot be considered legitimate currencies. The statements come from countries where Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are quite popular in the public sphere, and they come from governments that have been relatively proactive in establishing a clear legal framework for the digital assets. An Alternative to Fiat? Not Yet As originally reported by Reuters, Japan’s minister of finance, Taro Aso, indicated that Bitcoin has not proven itself to be a reliable form of currency.  The minister made it clear, though, that Bitcoin’s legal and financial status is not so cut and dry. “There’s no fixed definition on whether it’s a currency or not. This issue is a difficult one,” Aso stated after a Tuesday cabinet meeting. He continued, “It has not […]

Youbit Hacked Again, Closes Its Doors

In the wee hours of December 19, Youbit was dealt a death blow in the form of another hack. The exchange, which was also hit in April, is closing down in the fallout of the most recent attack. The Straw that Broke the Camel’s Back As revealed on its website, South Korean exchange Youbit has been forced to terminate its services after suffering another hack. The hackers ran off with 17% of Youbit’s funds, enough to drive the exchange into bankruptcy.

What Is Bitcoin Interest?

The number of Bitcoin hard forks in existence today is a lot larger than most people think. In fact, there are probably half a dozen projects out there people have not even heard of yet. Bitcoin Interest is not your average hard fork, though, despite the currency being distributed to Bitcoin holders at a 1:1 ratio come January. It’s a very different project that doesn’t even aim to replace Bitcoin. Bitcoin Interest is an Interesting Creature Although any project using the term “Bitcoin” will be heavily scrutinized, it doesn’t mean such concepts cannot be successful in their own way. The team behind Bitcoin Interest has come up with a rather interesting plan to create a new ecosystem without competing with Bitcoin directly. It’s still peer-to-peer electronic cash with full decentralization, but it will promote holding onto one’s coins first and foremost. The Bitcoin Interest […]

The lack of fungibility, privacy, and anonymity make them all less suited for the darknet than one would expect. Monero checks all of the right boxes in this regard. If all […]

University of Michigan Is Building the World’s First Unhackable Supercomputer

Supercomputers are one of those technological trends everyone is interested in. Although very few people would actually have a use for such computing power, there are some interesting developments taking place in this area. More specifically, a new machine is in development which claims to be unhackable. Thanks to US$3.6 million in funding through DARPA, the team behind this project may be able to live up to expectations. An Unhackable Centralized Supercomputer? The easiest way to create an unhackable supercomputer is to remove any central point of failure from the equation. That is much easier said than done in this day and age, though, as virtually every supercomputer is massively centralized. It usually consists of just one device which is hosted at a specific location, such as a data center or university. Going the decentralized route will not be easy, although we have seen […]

Bitcoin Gold Price Rises to Nearly $450 After Strong Comeback

As the market is seemingly rather bearish on Bitcoin, it is not surprising to see alternative cryptocurrencies make a big impact. Bitcoin Gold, the hard fork few people seemingly cared about two weeks ago, has now seen an intriguing value increase. More specifically, the Bitcoin Gold price has risen all the way to $484. An interesting development, although it remains to be seen if this hard fork will ever gain any major traction other than for speculative purposes. Bitcoin Gold Price Surpasses $440 When the Bitcoin Gold futures markets were opened to the public, it seemed this altcoin would easily surpass a value of $450. When the actual coins became available, the altcoin was off to a good start, although it quickly became evident there would be a fair amount of sell pressure to contend with. This became even more […]
