China to Ban Bitcoin Mining?

Reuters is reporting that the government of China wants to eliminate bitcoin mining in the country. According to a draft list of industrial activities, The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) is seeking to stop which is a clear shot across the bow of the cryptocurrency industry. China, home to the world’s biggest cryptocurrency mining farms (between 40 percent to 70 percent of the world’s mining power is still in China), is now considering banning them.

However, if local authorities begin targeting mining farms, this could have a substantial impact on Bitcoin’s global infrastructure. People talk a lot about the risks of a 51% attack, but the problem with accumulating so much centralised hash power in areas such as China is that – should it be turned off – the Bitcoin network’s performance will be harmed, stated Matt Hawkins, CEO of Cudo Miner. “The current status of Bitmain and its Chinese counterparts is significant to miners and the Bitcoin ecosystem. In the latest Antminer product, Bitmain will substantially reduce the global electricity use of Bitcoin, but only if the company is in a position to ship its products and if mining farm operators in China, and other regions throughout the world, take the risk of investing. “Other networks, such as Monero and GRIN, are working hard to deploy ASIC-resistant Proof of Work algorithms that help keep GPU miners on the network. Ethereum will soon deploy Progressive Proof of Work to favour GPU characteristics, although you can argue it is already centralised through GPU farms. It’s one of the biggest challenges of distributed computing – without central coordination, computing resources are decided by the market and are at the whim of regional policies throughout the world.” The NDRC added cryptocurrency mining to a list of about 450 industries that it proposes to eliminate. If the move is finalized, local governments in China would be prohibited from supporting makers of Bitcoin and other digital currencies through subsidies or other benefits

Albertsons Companies is Joining Blockchain-based IBM Food Trust Network to Pilot Technology to Increase food Transparency

Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States, is joining the Blockchain-based IBM Food Trust network. The company’s goal is to pilot the technology to improve how food is traced from farms to store shelves. The Albertsons’ recent connection with the Food Trust ecosystem, a network that already has more than 80 brands, will bring Blockchain-based food traceability to many more consumers and industry players, like producers and retailers. Joining IBM’s Food Trust Network will help enable greater transparency and collaboration, and ultimately, a safer food supply. Raj Rao, General Manager, IBM Food Trust said: advertisement Token Agency “Establishing IBM Food Trust and opening it to the food ecosystem last year was a major milestone in making Blockchain real for business.” “Today, we are focused on ensuring that the solution scales and is accessible to participants across the food ecosystem, such as Albertsons Companies. By bringing more members into the network and enabling them to share greater cross-sections of data in a secured environment, we believe our vision of a transformed food ecosystem using Blockchain is closer than ever.” He added. Most food supply chains are non-transparent manual processes, making it very difficult and time consuming to track down a problem when there is an issue with the food after it reaches its destination. Blockchain is a trustworthy and transparent system of record that establishes a shared environment for transactions for all participants. Basically each node on the Blockchain represents a place or entity that has handled the food on the way to the store, creating a digital record of transactions or interactions – from a packaging date, to the temperature at which an item was shipped, to its arrival on a grocery shelf. Anuj Dhanda, Chief Information Officer, Albertsons Companies said: “Blockchain technology has the potential to be transformational for us as we further build differentiation on our fresh brand,” “Food safety is a very significant step. In addition, the provenance of the products enabled by Blockchain — the ability to track every move from the farm to the customer’s basket — can be very empowering for our customers.” He added. The growing number of participants using Blockchain technology helps address a broad range of food system issues, such as supply chain efficiency, freshness, waste reduction, sustainability and participants’ ability to verify certifications, such as fair trade and organic. Already, more than five million food products digitized on the solution are on retail shelves. Albertsons Companies, with nearly 2,300 stores across the U.S., will start the pilot with Food Trust tracing bulk romaine lettuce from one of its distribution centers, then will explore expanding to other food categories throughout its distribution network. Albertsons Companies plans to pilot the solution to help overcome the obstacles that have existed when a traceback is initiated for a product like romaine and is evaluating ways to use the technology to highlight the provenance of its extensive Own Brands portfolio. “Multiple high-profile consumer advisories from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration demonstrate the need to find more efficient ways of tracing products and identifying likely sources of contamination in a timely manner,” said Jerry Noland, VP of Food Safety & Quality Assurance, Albertsons Companies. “Consequently, retailers are exploring new technologies to improve the infrastructure that underpins the global food supply chain.” He added. By creating a transparent, secured information-sharing platform, the food ecosystem can benefit from greater efficiencies and lower barriers to critical information access to help make the food supply chain safer. Built on Hyperledger Fabric-based open source technology, the solution uses permissioning to ensure companies can set rules about who can see the data they upload to the solution and for how long, and that they maintain control of their data even after it has been uploaded to Food Trust.

Samsung SDS is announcing its plans to innovate in various fields with Blockchain and Intelligent Process Automation

Samsung SDS, will announce a new service that enhances traceability of supply chain based on Blockchain and logistics business automation at the ‘Cello Conference 2019’ to be held on March 14.

advertisement

Blockchain based supply chain technology allows for a more secure and transparent way of tracking all types of transactions, presenting lots of possibilities across the supply chain. When a product changes hands, the transaction can be documented, creating a permanent history of a product, from manufacture to sale. This process could dramatically reduce time delays, added costs, and human error that can plague transactions today.

Samsung’s new service will provide transparent processing history of the aquaculture-shipping-distribution of the marine products to the consumers and ASK (All about seafood in Korea) Export Council consisting of domestic seafood processing companies.

This service, which is provided in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS), was first commercialized in Korea for the ASK Export Council after its service verification through a pilot project last year.

Samsung SDS is also planning to introduce cases of logistics business automation with Brity Works, an Intelligent Process Automation solution of Samsung SDS.

Brity Works has improved work efficiency in several areas by automating simple repetitive tasks done by about 100 employees such as accessing the shipping site to collect and input transportation information of the freights.

In addition to business automation, Samsung SDS is also in the process of presenting a business model of Last Mile Delivery, which is focused on delivering items to the end user as fast as possible. Applied in Germany, the model provides optimized logistics services through logistics network based on Cello platform.

“We will continue to pursue various logistics innovation through latest technologies such as Blockchain and AI, and will strengthen external business by heightening the competitiveness of smart logistics service,” said Hyung-Tae Kim, executive vice president, leader of logistics business unit of Samsung SDS.

An Overview of the Best Bitcoin Exchange Apps

By Mary Ann Callahan

advertisement

Having access to a Bitcoin exchange right on your phone is a big advantage. Mobile apps are convenient to use and make trading quicker and easier. Plus, you can buy Bitcoin on the go – not bad, right? Unfortunately, not all crypto exchange apps are reliable and functional. Some are not secure, and others are glitchy. Here is a list of Bitcoin exchange apps worth recommending to fellow crypto enthusiasts.

CEX.IO

General overview:

CEX.IO has a mobile application with the versions for both Android and iOS. The nice thing about CEX.IO is that you can buy Bitcoin with your credit/debit card right from your app. After all, using a VISA card is a lot faster than using a bank transfer.

The interface is well-designed. It isnt cluttered or hard to navigate. This makes it ideal for amateur investors who want a  place to start trading with little fuss. Once you go through the verification process, you can link your credit card and start trading Bitcoin instantly.

One thing to keep in mind is that CEX.IO has a rather limited selection of altcoins. So check the list of coins first, they are all presented on the main page – https://cex.io/. However, if you are just interested in trading Bitcoin, this is a non-issue. With the mobile app, you will be able to make deposits and withdrawals, check your balance, buy or sell Bitcoin and more. You can also use the app to compare exchanges, which is a definite plus.

Special features:

  • an instant purchase option for any cryptocurrency supported
  • payment with a credit card is allowed
  • graphical representation of data for all trading pairs
  • easy management of orders and trades

Binance

General overview:

Binance is a cryptocurrency exchange that has emerged in the industry only recently. Regardless of being young, it has earned the reputation of a trustworthy trading platform. Part of the companys success comes from its mobile application, which supports both Android and iOS. Binance is great not only for trading Bitcoin but also a wide range of altcoins – even less popular ones. However, the drawback here lies in the fact that Binance is suitable only for cryptocurrency trading and it doesn’t support fiat transactions.

The unique thing about Binance is that it has its own token called BNB. If you use the BNB tokens to trade, you get a discount on the exchange fees. For this reason, Binance is ideal for users who intend to do frequent trading.

The Binance app has tons of features that enhance the user experience, including managing your trades and watching the market on the move. Transactions are fast and can be done worldwide.

Special features:

  • the latest statistics on active markets (i.e. trading pairs, last price, daily changes)
  • ability to place both limit and market orders
  • deposits and withdrawals are allowed
  • 24/7 customer support

Bitfinex

General overview:

Bitfinex has one of the most intuitive designs for a mobile exchange app. Essentially, it consists of two sections – Funding and Trading, which can be customized by the user. In addition to Bitcoin and Ethereum as the frequently traded digital tokens, there are others as well. In fact, the list of cryptocurrencies you have to choose from is longer than most other exchange apps can offer. Thus, this is a good choice if you are also interested in trading altcoins against fiat.

The best aspect of Bitfinex is that the exchange has a high level of liquidity it is able to maintain. With other exchanges, it might take a while to purchase Bitcoin in bulk, but this is not the case with Bitfinex.

The biggest drawback, however, is that Bitfinex has shut down its service to the US customers. So, if you are in the US, you might be out of luck and should try other exchanges.

Special features:

  • margin trading is allowed
  • easy management of orders and positions
  • multiple order types are supported
  • biometric identification

Coinbase

General overview:

This list wouldn’t be complete without Coinbase, the pioneer Bitcoin exchange with around 20 million users. What’s special about the Coinbase app is that it offers not only buying or selling cryptocurrency, but also storing it in a secure wallet at no cost. Coinbase supports fewer coins than other exchanges reviewed here. In fact, there are Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Ethereum Classic, and Litecoin at your disposal. The app is similar to CEX.IO’s, as it also allows users to link their bank account or credit card within it. The focus of the Coinbase app is providing users with convenient access to digital assets and their management.

However, there are a few drawbacks as well. Coinbase is available in 33 countries only, and unlike the above-mentioned exchanges, it doesn’t provide trading functionality.

Special features:

  • buying/selling with a credit card
  • cryptocurrency price charts tracking and alerts setting
  • sending and receiving cryptocurrency instantly

Conclusion

Mobile exchange apps are becoming better with each day. While many of these apps have a ton of issues, such as freezing and shutting off unexpectedly, some deliver a phenomenal user experience and are a lot more convenient than trading on a desktop computer.

New Report by BlockchainDefender Links Lack of Trust in Cryptocurrency Industry to Dwindling Coin Prices

Blockchain is a technology synonymous with transparency, traceability and trust. However, does trust really exist from the perspective of an outsider looking into the blockchain
industry? Can protocols built upon trust truly evolve without first gaining public trust?


2018 BlockchainDefender has been working to develop an interesting report that gives us all a better inside on how a lack of trust in the cryptocurrency industry has affected coin prices. The in-depth report will answer some of the questions we have all been asking ourselves during this never-ending bear market, and revolves around some of these key Research Findings:

• There’s a clear correlation between an increase in
negative online sentiment about cryptocurrencies
and a fall in their market capitalisation.
• If there’s high search volume and positive sentiment,
a cryptocurrency’s market capitalisation increases.
• If there’s negative sentiment about a cryptocurrency
that becomes more prominent, market capitalisation
decreases.

The report gives an analytic overview on the global crypto market. It describes the most common online destinations that could be found for online negativity towards
cryptocurrencies. It tells that, in comparison, crypto exchanges seem to be struggling to protect and improve their online reputations. It tells us what impact Google search results have on us. It also gives us a better inside into Bitcoin’s global reputation and might just answer that final burning question- why does the cryptocurrency industry have a bad reputation and how can cryptocurrencies combat this problem?

Almost as interesting as the report itself, is the reason behind the study.

“‘BlockchainDefender was approached by a number of different companies within the blockchain industry in 2017- including exchanges, cryptocurrencies, tokens and wallets – that all had one thing in common: online reputation concerns. This trend extended into 2018 and while servicing these companies with a solution, we were scraping and gathering a lot of search engine data. When combined, this data was presenting us with some very interesting facts and figures”, said Tony McChrystal, Managing Director at ReputationDefender EMEA.

“Motivated by intrigue and the pursuit of gaining a deeper understanding of our client’s issues, we extended our data gathering into different demographics and started covering other parts of the cryptocurrency market. Our analysis confirmed our initial findings and assumptions; it wasn’t just our clients suffering from online reputation management issues, but the industry in its entirety.

This quite often happens to emerging markets – with outside commentary challenging new ideas and concepts – but the most interesting discovery for us was that the majority of negative commentary and content was coming from within the market itself. This information was vital to us as a reputation management service provider, as you need to know where the problem originates before you can offer the right solution”, added Tony.

The conclusion of the report might make it worthwhile to read the whole thing, as we apparently can all affect the market in a positive way. It says that, due to the prolonged bear market, many blockchain projects have halted or slowed down their marketing efforts. Doing this can be extremely detrimental to the success of a project and can lead to the collapse of a coin. Cryptocurrencies must broadcast their news, updates and progress in a clear and concise manner to authoritative and trusted industry websites. This not only helps to cement and maintain a positive reputation for the project; it also makes it stand out from the competition as a respectable project with a long-term visio

Fetch.AI To Launch Token Sale on Binance Launchpad to Build Intelligent Machine-to-Machine Economy

Decentralised network Fetch.AI, a decentralised infrastructure for digital representatives ‘Autonomous Economic Agents’ to find, communicate and trade with each other, has announced that its token sale on Binance Launchpad will begin on Monday 25 February at 14:00 UTC.


Humayun Sheikh, CEO of Fetch.AI said:

“Today’s internet is built for ecommerce solutions that enable connectivity between humans. The new web needs to enable more autonomous machine-based solutions and this requires building the infrastructure and tools to make it deployable. Fetch.AI is building the deployment infrastructure, which brings the new AI-based autonomous machine economy to life.”

Giving a practical example, Sheikh added:

“Let’s take travel. Today, people rely on traditional travel agents or spend hours searching for the travel combinations they need. An autonomous agent learns from your behaviour to build a clearer picture of your needs. It uses that insight to search vast combinations of options, confirms availability with, say, an airline or rail network, negotiates a price and completes the transaction.”

He continued: “For businesses, this enables a more targeted selling opportunity without the need for a user’s personal data or deployment of machine learning algorithms.”

“The Fetch network is in a position to help overcome barriers presented by centralised systems for bringing data to life, leveraging an AI and decentralised solution,” said Binance CEO and Founder, Changpeng Zhao (CZ).

“We are looking forward to this project that will help create a decentralised digital world for the future of economic activities and marketplaces.”

The Fetch.AI token (FET) acts as the medium of exchange, allowing autonomous agents to exchange tokens for data, services, and other goods within the Fetch.AI network, easily supporting machine-to-machine microtransactions.

For businesses, the new approach means virtually any networked machine or real-world assets, such as hotel rooms or hospital beds, can now be represented by an autonomous agent so they can manage their own affairs, like autonomous booking, pricing, and maintenance. This type of infrastructure enables new marketplaces to evolve and flourish without the need for intermediaries.

 

For users, an autonomous agent can live on a smartphone continuously learning the intimate needs of the user based on decisions the human takes and by accessing data from calendars, email, and many other systems to enable highly personalised experiences. The data needed to inform this step-change in personalisation and automation remains sovereign to the user, informing the agent but without the need for the agent to reveal the underlying data to third-parties.

Blockchain Platform Orbs Marks Strategic Expansion Into South Korea

Hybrid blockchain scaling base-layer protocols company Orbs, has announced that it has established a partnership with Ground X, the blockchain subsidiary of leading South Korean internet company Kakao, for research, development, and business cooperation.

Orbs has also opened headquarters in Seoul – with five full-time employees hired to drive further business development in the Asian region.

Orbs’ Branching out into South Korea, a leading global blockchain hub, demonstrates a commitment to tapping into the country’s significant blockchain talent to spearhead technical innovation in the space worldwide.

Orbs will collaborate with Ground X to conduct research and development on shared blockchain components, such as a crypto library, mutual security audits, and autonomous swaps, an advancement that would facilitate decentralized interoperability of cryptocurrency assets. Additionally, the two teams will compose joint research papers and conduct peer review on code vital to the core development initiatives of both blockchain infrastructures. Orbs and Ground X will also support one another’s business development. This work will be complemented by the opening of Orbs’ Seoul headquarters this month. The new location has hired five full-time employees to manage marketing and community relations efforts, in addition to strategic partnerships and business development work.

Orbs Co-founder Uriel Peled said: “It’s no coincidence that Orbs decided to open its first office outside of Israel. With leading conglomerates such as Kako entering the space, South Korea is currently leading the pack when it comes to innovation and development in the blockchain space and has the potential to become the ‘blockchain nation.’ Partnering with Ground X on innovative blockchain development will facilitate the continued evolution of both of our platforms, and enable those at the forefront of dApp development to experience unrivalled security, liquidity and scalability. In addition, by opening our office in Seoul, we are cementing our presence in a region that we view as fundamental to blockchain’s future.”

Ground X, a subsidiary of South Korean internet conglomerate Kakao, is a blockchain business development unit focused on developing a reliable and scalable platformto meet the constantly-evolvingneeds of major players in the space. The company is in the process of recruiting partners to establish a collaborative environment in which blockchain solutions can be tested and appraised, with the goal of making them as user-friendly as possible prior to extending their use to wider industry.

Ground X CEO Jason Han said: “Ground X’s partnership with an industry leader of the technical sophistication of Orbs represents a significant step forward for the blockchain space both within South Korea’s borders and globally. Through our long-term collaboration, we look forward to building a collaborative network that will advance our mission of leveraging blockchain technology to drive private and public sector innovation within Asia and elsewhere. Ground X is also proud to have Orbs as our local partners in Israel to further establish and solidify our presence in another global technology hub.”

Han added: “This MOU with Orbs is a part of Ground X’s plan to form the Blockchain Tech Alliance.Ground X is planning to collaborate with other outstanding local and global blockchain tech companies and institutions to develop a high-end blockchain platform and to create a sound blockchain ecosystem. We will not only be covering technologies of blockchain platforms, but also building a collaborative network covering diverse areas including security and DApp technologies.”

 

How blockchain technologies can take the wastage out of the retail economy

Plenty of discussion around cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies are around those who are either fully evangelised or are in the process of being so. Yet for many others, the benefits will hope to go through unseen.

It’s how technology ought to be – if it’s difficult to use or in any way not a seamless experience, then it is not doing its job. This is how Beam, a startup based across three continents, aims to put blockchain to use in the retail industry.

According to IHS Markit, retail and eCommerce will realise $164 billion in ‘probable’ business value by 2030 because of a rise in the number of blockchain projects that are initiated and deployed. Initial use cases, the research firm added, would be around trade promotions, payments, smart contracts and supply chain, while larger retailers will need more time to be convinced.

Beam outlines the reason why it is opening up its platform on its ICO page. “In the future of retail, all our data belongs to us, the customer, and we get paid to share it,” the company explains. “This has created a waste-free world where every product and service is perfectly matched to our needs and wants.

“Every product and service knows its customer before it is produced, and they find us at the right time, right place, and for the right price.”

Shezan Amiji, co-founder of Beam, takes up the concept of waste further – and it’s not just around retailers and brands disposing of stock, as recently revealed with Burberry, which contributes.

Amiji was recently speaking to a retail partner, who had been in business for the better part of two decades, and asked how much money had been paid in processing fees to Visa and Mastercard over the years. The answer: around $400 million. Amiji then asked: have either of those companies sent a Christmas card for being such a loyal customer in those 20 years?

It may be a flippant example, but as Amiji puts it: “This is a small example of how incumbents in the retail ecosystem are extracting value out of it but are not adding the commensurate value back into it.” With blockchain therefore, the retailer and the end user should win.

Another factor in Beam’s advantage is its age. Six years is not ancient in the grand scheme of things, but in startup and cryptoland it’s almost an eternity. Naturally, the interest in blockchain was recent, having been focused in the payments ecosystem previously. The mission hasn’t changed per se, but the journey has.

“We’ve made a lot of mistakes over the last six years – those mistakes are invaluable in terms of learning,” Amiji explains. “We understand the challenges and the issues of the retail ecosystem perhaps better than most, because we’ve been fully immersed in it. The solution already works [and] already solves problems for existing members of the retail ecosystem – now we want to broaden it and deepen it.”

One particular aspect of retail – as Arianee, a startup focusing on putting luxury goods on the blockchain told this publication – is that third parties are often trusted with suspicion. Amiji confirms this. “The larger the retailer, the more they want to do themselves, because they think they can do it themselves,” he says. “The problem has always been that – I think there’s a degree of self-awareness sinking in to the retail economy – they’re probably better equipped to do some things rather than others.

“I think there is a growing realisation that they should focus on what they’re really good at and leave the rest to people who are specialised.”

With this, then innovation can thrive. Take real-time pricing algorithms as an example. “That’s what the blockchain allows you to do as well,” adds Amiji. “It allows you to deliver specialised services on a common platform, and by creating an open network, an open platform, it allows people to develop a specific and really narrow range of expertise that’s very deep and that can help.”

Beam’s vision is so ingrained – and the company’s position so solid – that they have been in a position to give money back to investors – not least with its recent series B funding round. “We actually had money in the bank, and we went back to investors and gave that money back, because they had solicited that money on a specific plan. Given what we saw about the blockchain and crypto, we felt [that] this was the right plan for us to do, and we felt strongly enough about it to give money back to investors.

“Obviously we have the luxury of doing that because we have an existing business, and so that gave us the opportunity to do that.”

Ultimately, the company’s goal is to bring potentially disparate groups together. It is that, rather than just a basic trust argument, which Amiji sees as key. “I have a slightly different perspective,” he says. “I think what blockchain does is allows people to work together, but not necessarily trust each other to work together. For example, it allows people to partner and cooperate who would not be willing to cooperate otherwise.

“The fact that it’s decentralised, and there’s no one entity that controls all that information, everyone that’s on the platform controls their access to that information, and that is a powerful thing of the blockchain.

“Rather than introducing trust into the economy, and into the system, it eliminates the need for trust.”
