In this era of disruption, it’s absolutely necessary to redefine business models and archetypes as a whole. This post dives into the benefits of blockchain, its impact on the financial system, and how some companies are experimenting. Traditional financial services companies, and banks in particular, are behind the curve in terms of technology. An accenture report claims that most big banks have systems as old as the 1970s or even 1960s, which mean that newer IT systems are just patched on top of the core to deliver online and mobile banking capabilities.
Blockchain: the solution for transparency in product Information architecture for a certification and chain-of-custody system on the blockchain Here we show how existing certifications and audits of supply chains can take on a new guise implemented on the blockchain. There are six different types of actors involved in our exemplar set-up: Sidechains And Lightning, The New New Bitcoin The great thing about Bitcoin, for a tech columnist like me, is that it’s simultaneously over-the-top cinematic and technically dense. Richard Branson recently hosted a “Blockchain Summit” at his private Caribbean island. There’s a Bitcoin Jet. At the same time, 2015 has seen the release of a whole slew of technically gnarly–and technically fascinating–proposals built atop the Bitcoin blockchain. In case you’ve been living in a Faraday cage: a blockchain is a distributed peer-to-peer ledger system, (generally) safeguarded by cryptographic proof-of-work, initially devised by a mysterious entity called Satoshi Nakamoto … who released Bitcoin, the world’s first blockchain network/protocol/application/currency, in 2009.
Ethereum - Wikipedia Ethereum was proposed in late 2013 by Vitalik Buterin, a cryptocurrency researcher and programmer. Development was funded by an online crowdsale during July–August 2014. The system went live on 30 July 2015. History Origin Ujo Music Today, an artist’s identity is thinly spread across many online music services. These platforms are walled-off and disconnected, making it difficult for innovators to access information that could be used to create services that allow fans to experience music in new ways. Ujo takes a different approach by building an open music ecosystem on the Ethereum blockchain. The blockchain provides a shared infrastructure for all music services so they can focus on providing value to their users. The shared infrastructure also supplies a basis for persistent artist identity. Artists own and control their works, and can frictionlessly migrate to and from services.
Coinbase VS Btc-e VS BitStamp - Where Should you Buy Bitcoins ? Probably one of the first questions any Bitcoin newbie asks himself is where do I buy Bitcoins. It seems that every other day another trading platform comes along and with so many options it’s hard to know the major differences between the exchanges. That’s why I’ve decided to create this short comparison between the 3 major exchanges today – Coinbase, BTC-E and Bitstamp. Blockchain: the answer to life, the universe and everything? Have you heard the good news? The blockchain is here – and it’s going to save everything. If you aren’t tied to the tech community, you might not have picked up on this salvation rhetoric. But you probably have heard of bitcoin, which burst into the public consciousness before imploding dramatically in 2014. But now, bitcoin is starting to look less important than the engine that drives it – the blockchain. It was created to solve a problem that had been puzzling digital activists for decades: how to create digital property without a central authority keeping track of who owns what.
A 101 Noob Intro to Programming Smart Contracts on Ethereum – Medium Originally published at consensys.github.io/developers (where some of the code formatting might be easier to read). Some people say Ethereum is too logic-heavy and hard to use, but here’s a write-up to give you a feel for building smart contracts and applications with it. Tools, wallets, applications and the ecosystem are still in development and it’ll get easier! Part I is an overview of key terms and discusses Ethereum Clients and Smart Contract Languages.Part II discusses overall workflow and some current DApp Frameworks and Tools andPart III is the Programming Part, a quick walkthrough of writing tests and building a DApp for a smart contract using Truffle.
