HK an attractive fintech base

 Cache   

Hong Kong can help you find your fintech future because we are building that future right now.

 

The present, as you know, is in considerable flux here. But we are working to heal our community divide, communicating to find a way forward, to return harmony to Hong Kong. It is a work in progress but, in good time, we will get there.

 

In the meantime, the faltering global economy and Hong Kong's continuing community dissension have brought us a heavy hit. They have dealt a blow to our economic growth and to a great many businesses across sectors.

 

Despite today's very real business challenges, I am here to tell you that Hong Kong remains one of the world's most competitive economies. Last month, the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report ranked Hong Kong third - up from seventh last year. And in terms of digital competitiveness, the Swiss-based International Institute for Management Development ranked Hong Kong eighth, up from 11th last year, with a big leap forward in the factor "Future readiness". And earlier this year, the same institute also placed Hong Kong second in the World Competitiveness Yearbook.

 

Indeed, our banks and financial markets continue to operate smoothly.

 

And we remain strongly committed to the Linked Exchange Rate System, which has served Hong Kong well for 36 years, through countless economic and financial cycles.

 

Hong Kong's foreign exchange reserves stand at US$430 billion, more than two times of our monetary base.

 

No less important, the free flow of capital, in and out of Hong Kong, is guaranteed under the Basic Law. It is also driven by Hong Kong's status as one of the world's leading financial centres - and China's international financial capital.

 

It is not surprising that Hong Kong's fintech sector is fast emerging as a regional hub.

 

World-renowned innovation laboratories and accelerator programmes, such as Accenture Fintech Innovation Lab and Deloitte Asia Pacific Blockchain Lab, have established their presence here.

 

According to Accenture, Hong Kong fintech companies have raised US$1.1 billion over the past five years.

 

The number of fintech companies based here now exceeds 600. About 40% of them were started overseas, choosing turning to Hong Kong as their base in the Asian region.

 

Many of them see Hong Kong as their business bridge to the region and, in particular, to the Mainland. Indeed, more than 50% of our fintech companies either operated in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area or plan to expand their business into the region.

 

More than a gateway to the region, Hong Kong is at the heart of fintech innovation in Asia.

 

Earlier this year, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) awarded licences to our first eight virtual banks. We hope to see the launch of some of them by the end of the year. And you will hear more about our virtual banks in various sessions today and tomorrow.

 

Earlier this year, the HKMA also launched phase one of the Open Application Programming Interface (API) framework, allowing technology companies to create fintech-enabled solutions for the banking industry.

 

Today, more than 500 open APIs have been launched by some 20 retail banks. Phase two, which began last month, focuses on customer acquisition. The two phases, covering account information and transactions, are now being developed by the HKMA in close collaboration with the industry.

 

These new initiatives are game changers for the banking sector and Hong Kong's financial services sector as a whole.

 

In September last year, we launched the Faster Payment System, which connects banks and stored-value facilities, or e-wallets, enabling instant fund transfer - seven days a week, 24 hours a day - in both Hong Kong dollar and renminbi.

 

As of September, the Faster Payment System had recorded about 3.5 million registrations. In the month of September alone, the system processed about four million transactions involving $58 billion and RMB1 billion.

 

At the same time, we introduced the common QR code standard for retail payments. It helps merchants, especially small and medium enterprises, use a single QR code to accept payments by various schemes.

 

Last year, our Insurance Authority began its Fast Track scheme, which expedites applications to engage in the insurance business, in or from Hong Kong, solely using digital distribution channels.

 

The first virtual insurer under Fast Track was granted last December. A second authorisation was approved just last month, creating more customer-centric services and products.

 

Ultimately, of course, fintech rises on the human talent behind the technology.

 

It is one of the reasons why the HKMA established the Academy of Finance in June. The academy serves as a centre of excellence in the development of tomorrow's financial leaders.

 

And starting early next year, our Cyberport will launch a fintech training programme for in-service financial professionals, helping professionals from our traditional financial sector embrace the promise of fintech.

 

There is lots more in the fintech pipeline, but allow me, for just a moment, to touch on Shenzhen.

 

Hong Kong and Shenzhen are two of the 11 cities in the Greater Bay Area. Together, we will help drive innovation and technology for this fast-emerging cluster city development of 71 million consumers.

 

The Greater Bay Area is an enormous market, an outsized opportunity for fintech and investment in fintech.

 

Financial Secretary Paul Chan gave these remarks at the opening of Hong Kong Fintech Week 2019 on November 6.

XSteem proposal FAQ

 Cache   
After [XSteem proposal](/xsteem/@good-karma/xsteem-proposal), I have received a lot of questions. In this post, will try to answer some common questions. Feel free to ask more questions please, so we can update this post to clear any uncertainties and doubts.

XSteem Proposal post image cover

## What's XSteem? XSteem is potentially, full fledged SMT exchange. Allows you to trade SMT tokens with STEEM, with proper charting and tooling around multi-token management. Opensource Mobile app and Website! ## What's the purpose of Proposal? Our team, has extensive knowledge of Steem by building eSteem and we have vibrant community. We propose Steem community to build opensource software that can be used, hosted by anyone. Funding is essentially to support foundational development of XSteem software. ## Who will host XSteem? Software will be opensource and development version will be hosted by us and anyone can make a clone and host their own version with their own set of tokens and improve upon software. Everything will be documented and opensourced. ## What is included in proposal? We made post about details of XSteem and what it could include. Read more here: [XSteem proposal details](/xsteem/@good-karma/xsteem-proposal-details) Essentially, it will be backend, frontend for web and mobile. Backend will have additional data api and data indexer to allow flexible charting for better trading experience. ## Is there regulatory issues? There are certain regulatory issues that may arise having the chain support a DEX, but we think design Steem blockchain following has less risks and can be taken as peer to peer digital goods exchange. We are doing some more research on this field, but it shouldn't affect our development, because we are developing software that utilizes Steem API. ## Will Steemit build DEX? I cannot speak for Steemit Inc's plans, but I think there will be minimal onchain DEX as part of SMTs. Slight extension of current internal market Steemit implemented. However, having more tools around SMTs is better and XSteem will be much more user friendly, with better charting tools, because we will be building backend that will create API just like traditional exchanges where data can be interpreted as candlesticks, additional trading indicators, price tickers, better wallet management and mobile. ## How much are you asking? Daily budget is 333 SBD which is around ~$230. It is very small portion of daily budget. ~1300 SBD is daily budget of SPS and it is increasing by minutes. We think XSteem will be great service for the growth of community and accelerate adoption of SMTs. ## How do I support project? You can support us by approving proposal, currently we have around 3.4M SP approving, to be funded and start development, we will need ~10M SP more. If you think, our team can deliver XSteem, support. ### Approve Proposal #44 [Approve with Steemconnect](https://beta.steemconnect.com/sign/update-proposal-votes?proposal_ids=[44]&approve=true) [esteem://sps](esteem://sps) https://steemitwallet.com/proposals https://steemproposals.com/proposals/good-karma * [Announcement of XSteem proposal](/xsteem/@good-karma/xsteem-proposal)

Hmmm, curation rewards almost identical to the previous month. I thought they'd dropped, but the Vests totals are very close to September. Author rewards are down, no more blocktrades/actifit contests for a while now and so I think that will fall again next month. I'm posting less too at present - too busy! ------------------------ Let me know in the comments if you would like a report for October 2019 and/or a CR chart for this year. And if you can think of anything else that would be worth adding mention it below and I'll consider it for next month. They may be a delay but I will try to get to everyone at some point. Cheers Asher

SteemFlagRewards: Moderation Decentralized Ad

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h64YVCsxZBA ### Snake? Snake!? Snaaaake! I was fortunate enough to win a contest for a week of free advertisement on an internet radio show (Minnow Support Project - MSP Waves) so I had to get to work.
[Link as I do not want it to be the thumbnail](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmPr75E6BJ9mPbX1WbgdH7Tb7GEexE2HoDpyJ71JCmRvEt/sgt_downvote_mgs_green.png) Also, created this pretty sweet image of myself w/ my kevlar using Photoshop
It is now my new profile pic. ;) *Disclaimer: I do not specialize in audio or visual media but I am learning. It certainly doesn't hurt that I tend to be a creative type of person. Also, you will notice if you follow me that I often make references to the great video games of old. It's one of my "things". Anyways, I think this came out okay given the circumstances.* --- I was also asked to included a blurb for this video that should include a call to action. I'm going to include one suggestion that honestly is pretty thoughtful. >Fight abuse, get rewarded! Join the Steem Flag Rewards Discord to support a better Steem for all. https://discord.gg/aXmdXRs **That's not bad. Not bad at all. Short and succinct.** The only thing I have apprehensions about with the video is people may be unsure the many ways that they are able to support this open source project and the moderators that give their valuable time to approve flags. I want to ensure moving forward that I work to at least try to make it worth that time. This is why I am considering leveraging the Steem Proposal System to make that happen if folks see the value in what we do. Not trying to put myself up on a pedestal or anything but suffice it to say that the Steem blockchain has had the benefit of a Sr. System Engineer dedicating a lot of time to help get this project this far. It wasn't easy and, at times, things get a little rough which our admins / mods will attest. Think it is in all of our best interests to not allow SFR to go to the wayside and, to be frank, that is what will likely happen if mods bail. I simply just do not have enough time to develop, troubleshoot, do PR, be a dad to a moderately autistic child as well as a new infant. I wished I did. **Where's a good clone when you need 'em?** --- Ok, back on track, my blurb is as follows: >Join Steemflagrewards and use of your stake to minimize the profitability of abusive behaviors... and let's keep it that way! If you would like to help the cause, consider delegating to @steemflagrewards and upvoting @steemflagrewards / @sfr-mod-fund beneficiary reports to further support abuse fighters and mods. *Together, we can accomplish much more than we could individually.* http://mspwaves.com/

Le PDG de Ripple (XRP) affirme qu’il y a trop de crypto-actifs

Le PDG de Ripple (XRP) affirme qu’il y a trop de crypto-actifs 101
Brad Garlinghouse. Source: une capture d'écran, Bloomberg

Selon Brad Garlinghouse, le PDG de Ripple (XRP), la startup spécialisée dans les technologies de paiement, il y a trop de crypto-actifs. Et bien que la volatilité se maintienne, il existe des tendances haussières visibles sur l’ensemble du marché de la cryptographie, a-t-il ajouté.

"Je suis d'accord avec toi. Il y en a trop”, a répondu le PDG lors d'une récente interview pour Bloomberg à la question d'un animateur concernant le nombre trop élevé de cryptomonnaies. Quelque 3 000 actifs numériques différents sont négociés quotidiennement, explique-t-il. “Je pense que chaque fois qu'un nouveau marché se crée, de nombreuses personnes se pressent sur ce marché et essaient de montrer qu'elles peuvent résoudre un problème et répondre aux besoins des clients. J'ai déjà déclaré publiquement que 99% des cryptos ne vaudront rien, mais il y en a 1% qui cherchent à résoudre un problème réel pour de vrais clients et sont capables de le faire à grande échelle. C’est ça qui va faire la différence, dit le PDG, ça va continuer de se développer considérablement dans les décennies à venir".

Garlinghouse a partagé quelques opinions lors de cette interview. Le président-directeur général a déclaré que Ripple considérait SWIFT (société de communication financière interbancaire mondiale) comme une société qui "a défini la manière dont les paiements transfrontaliers se sont faits", mais il trouve que l'âge moderne d'Internet est celui où les gens attendent de la rapidité et de la facilité, alors qu'une transaction SWIFT peut prendre des jours et que ni le destinataire ni l'expéditeur ne sont en mesure de la suivre.

De plus, en ce qui concerne la stabilité du marché des cryptos, le PDG a déclaré que “le risque de volatilité est moindre avec une transaction XRP” par rapport à SWIFT. Il constate qu’il y a “une fausse croyance” perpétuée ici et que, la volatilité est un calcul qui prend à la fois en compte le temps de la transaction et la volatilité elle-même, or la volatilité de l’activation d’une transaction SWIFT est bien supérieure à celle d’une transaction XRP, cette dernière ne prenant que quelques secondes à se faire.

Toutefois, SWIFT pourrait ne pas être d'accord avec cette affirmation. SWIFT a en effet déclaré ne pas craindre la blockchain et avoir progressivement remodelé son réseau au cours des deux dernières années avec les paiements SWIFT gpi (global payments innovation) qui existent déjà et se font en quelques minutes, voire quelques secondes. De plus, George Harrap, PDG de Bitspark, une solution de transfert d’argent sans banque utilisant la technologie de la blockchain, a récemment affirmé que Ripple n’était pas utile pourWestern Union (WU), leur système étant meilleur selon lui.

De plus, selon une étude de la firme d’analyse Juniper Research, "Ripple fait face à une concurrence accrue de la part de Visa B2B Connect et IBM Blockchain World Wire, qui ont déjà accru leur présence dans 60 pays et ont des partenaires de premier plan dans l'écosystème financier ", ont déclaré les chercheurs. Ils estiment également que la valeur totale des paiements transfrontaliers B2B stockés immuablement sur la blockchain dépassera 4 400 milliards USD d'ici 2024 contre 171 milliards USD en 2019.

La Banque centrale européenne pourrait bientôt lancer une monnaie numérique publique

 Cache   

Face à Libra, la résistance s'organise. L'actuelle présidence finlandaise de l'Union européenne (UE) propose la création d'une monnaie numérique chapeautée par la Banque centrale européenne (BCE), selon un document obtenu par Reuters le 5 novembre 2019.

"La BCE et les autres banques centrales de l'UE pourraient explorer les opportunités et les défis relatifs à l'émission de devises numériques", est-il écrit dans cette proposition. La Finlande invite les 28 Etats membres à développer une approche commune sur les cryptomonnaies avec la possibilité d'interdire les projets jugés trop risqués.

Un levier de boucliers par les banques ?

D'après un responsable de la BCE interrogé par Reuters, la proposition finlandaise autoriserait les consommateurs européens à utiliser de l'argent électronique qui pourrait être directement déposé auprès de la BCE, sans nécessité d'un compte en banque. Le rôle que veut attribuer la Finlande à cet organisme financier n'est pas aussi simple. Les banques pourraient jalousées ce monopole et contester cette proposition.

Mais la présidence finlandaise est consciente des difficultés inhérentes à un tel projet. Le document reprend d'ailleurs les inquiétudes exprimées par le G7 sur les risques plus généraux posés par n'importe quelle monnaie privée. Même si cette hypothétique monnaie serait publique, elle n'en serait pas moins exempte des risques de blanchiment par exemple.

Cette proposition pourrait être soumise aux ministres des Finances de l'UE le vendredi 8 novembre 2019, en vue d'une possible adoption définitive le 5 décembre 2019. Les débats risquent d'être houleux car les différents membres n'ont pas tous la même position. La France a, à plusieurs reprises, montré un intérêt envers les monnaies publiques. Le Ministre de l'Economie Bruno Le Maire avait exposé sa vision lors de la conférence de l'Organisation de coopération et de développement économiques (OCDE) sur le blockchain le 12 septembre 2019.

Concurrencer Libra

Depuis l'annonce de sa création le 18 juin 2019, la cryptomonnaie portée par Facebook et plusieurs entreprises internationales défraie la chronique. La multiplication des critiques et des pressions de la part des régulateurs a d'ailleurs poussé une partie de ses membres fondateurs à quitter le projet.

Même si le document ne cite pas explicitement la cryptomonnaie privée, on comprend aisément la volonté de concurrencer Libra en instaurant une monnaie plus acceptable car publique. Le statut des actifs financiers ne règle cependant pas la question réglementaire. Il faudrait de toute façon modifier les textes européens et nationaux pour assurer le fonctionnement effectif d'un tel dispositif.

À compter d’aujourd’hui, les exchanges de cryptomonnaies peuvent demander à être réglementés par la Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) de Hong Kong qui a publié un document posant le cadre pour les échanges cryptographiques.

Les nouvelles règles couvrent des aspects de la conservation des cryptos, les exigences du client, des règles anti-blanchiment et des manipulations de marché, ainsi que des questions spécifiques au secteur de la cryptomonnaie, a dit Ashley Alder, directeur général du SFC dans une conférence Fintech à Hong Kong.

"Et cela met également en évidence de nombreux nouveaux concepts auxquels nous nous habituons, tels que les portefeuilles chauds et froids, les forks, les parachutages (airdrops), etc. Nous définirons également les critères permettant aux plateformes de décider de l'inclusion d'un nouvel actif pour le trading", a-t-il ajouté.

Selon Alder, la Commission a examiné "un grand nombre d'exploitants de plateformes cryptographiques" et a conclu que "certains d'entre nous pourraient être réglementés par nous".

Toutefois, le directeur général a souligné qu'il veillerait à ce que les opérateurs de plateformes ne puissent fournir des services qu'aux investisseurs professionnels, et uniquement à ceux qui sont en mesure de démontrer qu'ils possèdent déjà une connaissance suffisante en matière d'investissement dans ce domaine.

Cette annonce est "un moment crucial pour les services financiers en Asie et indique une acceptation accrue des actifs numériques en tant que nouveau type d'instruments financiers", a déclaré à Reuters Hugh Madden, le PDG de BC Group, une société techno de trading d'actifs numériques.

Dans le même temps, Alder a également souligné que la SFC était "extrêmement préoccupée" par les plateformes offrant des contrats à terme sur actifs virtuels au public, en particulier des contrats à fort effet de levier.

"Nous allons donc publier aujourd'hui un deuxième document qui alerte les investisseurs sur ces risques. Elle indique également que ceux qui proposent des contrats à terme sur des actifs virtuels à des fins de transaction pourraient bien mener une activité illégale", a déclaré M. Alder.

Plus tôt dans la journée, il a été annoncé que le planificateur d’état de la Chine, la Commission nationale du développement et de la réforme, avait retiré le secteur du minage de Bitcoin (BTC) de la liste des industries susceptibles d’être éliminées.

Tout cela s’inscrit dans la foulée de la récente demande du président chinois Xi Jinping d’accélérer le développement de la technologie blockchain en raison de son importance "dans le nouveau cycle d’innovation technologique et de transformation industrielle" de la Chine.

ONU : la Corée du Nord formerait de jeunes hackers aux attaques cryptos

 Cache   

Corée du Nord hackers

Des rapports de l’ONU indiquent que la Corée du Nord aurait recruté des jeunes pour devenir hackers en cryptos, comme le rapporte le média Chosun repris par Cryptonews. Ce n’est pas la première accusation de ce type à l’encontre du pays, qui semble déterminé à utiliser les crypto-actifs afin de contourner les sanctions et financer son développement.

Des cryptos dans les biberons des hackers nord-coréens

L’information vient de plusieurs rapports du Comité des sanctions contre la République populaire démocratique de Corée (RPDC) à l’ONU, qui ont été analysés par le membre du Parlement sud-coréen Cho Won-Jin. Selon ces derniers, le gouvernement nord-coréen identifie des enfants ayant montré un talent particulier pour l’informatique, et les sélectionne afin qu’ils deviennent des « cyber-agents ». Ils forment alors une unité spéciale, dont le but est d’attaquer des sites et espaces de stockages dédiés aux crypto-actifs.

La Corée du Nord conduirait ces raids afin de dérober des fonds et utiliserait principalement des techniques de « spearfishing » (hameçonnage ciblé), depuis au moins 2016. Il semblerait que les cibles favorites de cette unité spéciale soient les exchanges de cryptos sud-coréens, à cause de leur sécurité qui peut laisser à désirer.

Dissimuler les traces d’effraction

Si cette histoire paraît déjà rocambolesque, elle ne s’arrête cependant pas là. Toujours selon le média Chosun, il semblerait que la Corée du Nord ait également établi une entreprise blockchain à Hong Kong, qui servirait uniquement de façade afin de procéder au blanchiment des fonds ainsi dérobés. L’entreprise, Marine China, n’aurait qu’un seul investisseur.

Les cryptodevises volées seraient déplacées entre un grand nombre d’adresses, situées dans plusieurs pays différents, afin de couvrir les traces et éviter d’attirer l’attention de potentiels enquêteurs. Ce sont plus de 5 000 transactions qui auraient ainsi été effectuées. Cela permettrait au pays de continuer à se financer, tout en évitant les sanctions financières américaines qui pèsent actuellement sur son économie.

Ce rapport coïncide en tout cas avec d’autres informations qui avaient déjà été révélées il y a quelques mois. On apprenait ainsi en août que le pays aurait attaqué des exchanges afin de financer son programme d’armement. Ce sont deux milliards de dollars qui auraient ainsi été dérobés. L’information a bien sûr été niée par la RPDC, un mois plus tard. Ce qui est sûr, c’est que le pays s’intéresse fortement aux monnaies virtuelles. En septembre, on apprenait ainsi que l’État travaillait à sa propre cryptodevise, qui serait similaire au Bitcoin.

La Chine revoit sa position à l’égard de l’industrie du mining

 Cache   

Chine Bitcoin

La Commission nationale chinoise pour le développement et la réforme (NDRC) a rejeté son plan d’exclusion du mining de cryptomonnaies en tant qu’industrie dans le pays.

Soulagement pour l’industrie

L’organisme gouvernemental central chargé de formuler les orientations macroéconomiques de la Chine a publié le 6 novembre la dernière version de son « Industrial Structure Adjustment Guidance Catalog », qui dresse une liste des industries que l’organisme recommande d’encourager, de restreindre ou d’éliminer.

Alors que dans la version publiée en avril dernier l’industrie du mining était considérée comme une industrie à éliminer, la nouvelle version ne fait plus mention du mining dans cette catégorie. L’ébauche initiale recommandait aux gouvernements locaux d’éliminer progressivement l’exploitation minière du Bitcoin (BTC) du pays. Le nouveau plan sera effectif d’ici le 1er janvier 2020 avec d’ici là, on l’espère, aucune modification négative apportée à l’industrie du mining ou aux cryptomonnaies.

Lors d’une conférence de presse tenue aujourd’hui, les responsables de la NDRC ont déclaré que depuis la publication de l’ébauche initiale, l’agence a reçu plus de 2 500 suggestions sur diverses questions, dont la plupart ont été prises en considération. Cependant, aucune d’entre elles ne concernait le mining.

Une domination chinoise dans le marché du mining

Ce changement intervient après que le président chinois Xi Jinping se soit prononcé sur l’importance de la blockchain et du besoin d’accélérer son développement et son adoption dans les industries du pays. Ses propos auraient été à l’origine de l’énorme hausse du prix du Bitcoin le 25 octobre.

Les mineurs chinois sont également des acteurs majeurs dans l’industrie du mining du Bitcoin. Les quatre plus grands pools de mining sont localisés en Chine et participent à elles toutes à près de 63% du hashrate du réseau Bitcoin. La majorité du réseau est donc maintenu par ces entreprises connues sous les noms de AntPool, Poolin, BTC.com et F2Pool. De plus, en ce qui concerne les fabricants de matériel destiné au mining de cryptomonnaies, ce sont aussi deux grands constructeurs d’origine chinoise qui se partage le marché, BitMain et Canaan.

Avec cette modification, les entreprises chinoises spécialisées dans le mining ne semblent plus être menacées et leurs expansions pourraient drastiquement s’accélérer. Il est probable que la domination des fermes de mining originaire de Chine continue de s’accroître et dépasse rapidement une participation supérieure à 70% du hashrate global.

La possibilité qu’une attaque des 51% soit un jour envisageable sur le réseau du Bitcoin semble ne plus être un mirage. Une seule entité ne pourra très sûrement jamais y parvenir, mais un accord entre les deux plus grandes fermes de mining est possible dans le futur et pourrait compromettre la sécurité générale du réseau.

La lire numérique turque prête à être déployée en 2020

 Cache   

Lire numérique

Resmi Gazete, la plus importante revue nationale de Turquie, a publié un document décrivant le plan du président Recep Tayyip Erdoğan et ses directives pour terminer la monnaie numérique de banque centrale (CBDC).

Revitaliser l’économie nationale 

Le gouvernement du président Erdogan avait dévoilé en juillet 2019 son intention de créer une monnaie numérique émise par une banque centrale. Aujourd’hui, cette monnaie numérique nationale a reçu une date de finalisation à mesure que la Turquie avance dans sa reprise économique.

Les premiers essais de la lire numérique devraient être menés et finalisés d’ici fin 2020 et impliqueront la mise en place de plateformes logicielles pour le traitement de paiements instantanés. La banque centrale se joindra au Conseil de la recherche scientifique et technologique de la Turquie pour mener cette initiative à terme.

Comme l’indique le document officiel, le lancement de la lire numérique s’inscrit dans le cadre de l’objectif du pays de renforcer son économie nationale :

L’objectif principal est d’établir un secteur financier avec une structure institutionnelle forte qui peut répondre aux besoins de financement du secteur réel à un faible coût, offrir différents instruments financiers à une large base d’investisseurs à travers des institutions fiables et soutenir l’objectif d’Istanbul de devenir une place financière mondiale attractive.

En septembre, le gouvernement turc a annoncé son intention de mettre en place une infrastructure blockchain nationale pour déployer la technologie au cœur de l’administration publique. Les domaines de l’enregistrement dans les registres fonciers, la certification universitaire, et les douanes seront les premiers qui utiliseront ce nouveau système.

Cette annonce fait suite à l’approbation par le président chinois Xi Jinping de la technologie de la blockchain et de l’accélération des efforts du pays pour l’appliquer à de multiples secteurs. À l’instar de la Turquie, la Chine tente également de créer sa propre CBDC dans le but d’augmenter l’utilisation mondiale du yuan et de s’éloigner du recours au dollar américain pour les échanges internationaux.

La Corée du Nord transformerait des enfants en pirates de cryptomonnaies selon l’ONU

L’ONU pense que la Corée du Nord forme les jeunes les plus talentueux en informatique à devenir de véritables pirates de cryptomonnaies et pense que Pyongyang utilise une fausse blockchain de Hong Kong comme plateforme de blanchiment d’argent.

Selon le média Chosun, le député sud-coréen et membre de la commission parlementaire Cho Won-jin, a analysé les récents rapports du Comité du Conseil de sécurité sur la Corée du Nord.

Selon les données du rapport, les Nations unies ont découvert qu'une unité spéciale du gouvernement nord-coréen sélectionne et entretient d'éventuels "agents cybernétiques", identifiant des talents informatiques incroyables lorsqu'ils sont encore enfants et les entraînant dans le but exprès de pirater des cryptomonnaies.

En août, l’ONU a affirmé que Pyongyang avait perquisitionné environ 2 milliards USD de cryptomonnaies et d’autres fonds dans le cadre d’une campagne en cours pour alimenter ses programmes d’armement.

Selon le média, le rapport du comité de l'ONU contient également des détails sur la manière dont Pyongyang a créé une société blockchain à Hong Kong afin d'éviter les sanctions américaines.

La société, Marine China, aurait un investisseur unique, Julian Kim, qui porte également le pseudonyme de Tony Walker. Cette personne semble avoir eu accès à des fonds d'institutions financières basées à Singapour.

L'ONU pense que Pyongyang tente de couvrir ses traces après avoir effectué des rafles de cryptomonnaie, effectué "au moins 5 000 transactions individuelles" et transféré des fonds entre plusieurs adresses dans plusieurs pays afin de dissuader les enquêteurs.

Les Nations unies déclarent que les pirates informatiques de Pyongyang privilégient le hameçonnage comme moyen d’attaque, affirmant que l’État voyou a connu le succès avec cette stratégie dans le passé, prenant le contrôle des ordinateurs bancaires au Bangladesh en 2016.

L’année dernière, un expert a dit à Cryptonews.com que les échanges cryptographiques sud-coréens, plus petits, constituaient une autre cible privilégiée pour les pirates informatiques du Nord. L’expert a déclaré que les pirates informatiques considéraient ces plateformes comme des “solutions faciles à mettre en œuvre” en raison de leur niveau de sécurité souvent faible.

Coca-Cola s’appuie sur la blockchain pour sa chaîne d’approvisionnement

 Cache   

Coca-Cola

Les embouteilleurs de Coca-Cola implémentent une technologie blockchain pour gérer leurs transactions entre les différentes entités liées à l’activité. La nouvelle a été communiquée par Business Insider le 5 novembre en précisant que l’entreprise concernée est en train de mettre en place une solution blockchain développée par la société allemande de logiciels SAP.

Une évolution nécessaire

Coke One North America (CONA), une entreprise qui regroupe 12 fournisseurs et des centaines de milliers de commandes, estime que la solution blockchain de SAP pourrait réduire le temps nécessaire au traitement des commandes et à leur organisation. Andrei Semenov, cadre supérieur de Coke One North America, a déclaré :

Il y a un certain nombre de transactions interentreprises et multipartites qui sont inefficaces, qui passent par des intermédiaires et qui sont très lentes. Et nous pensions que nous pouvions l’améliorer et économiser de l’argent.

Avec l’aide de la technologie blockchain, CONA estime que la durée de conciliation des commandes passera de 50 jours à quelques jours seulement. Un aperçu en temps réel et transparent des transactions effectuées par les différents embouteilleurs sur le réseau sera mis à disposition. Le groupe traite près de 160 000 commandes par jour et génère plus de 21 milliards de dollars de recettes par an.

Une solution qui plaît

Selon le rapport, CONA a commencé le programme pilote avec deux embouteilleurs, Coca-Cola United et C.C. Clark, et l’étend maintenant à toutes les franchises. Andrei Semenov a conclu en ajoutant que la mise en place de cette solution était le fruit d’une collaboration de tous :

Il y a eu une négociation et une discussion, nous sommes parvenus à un consensus sur les données que nous voulions partager. Nous avons commencé avec une énorme liste d’attributs de données, et nous avons réduit la liste à celles sur lesquelles tout le monde était d’accord.

L’année dernière, SAP a lancé deux consortiums de blockchains, l’un ciblant les industries pharmaceutiques et des biotechnologies, et l’autre l’agroalimentaire, les produits de consommation et la distribution. Plus tôt cette année, Bumble Bee Foods a été la première entreprise à adopter la technologie blockchain de SAP.

Le groupe Pepsi, le principal concurrent de Coca-Cola, a aussi procédé à des expérimentations autour de la technologie de la blockchain. Celles-ci auraient permis d’accroître l’efficacité globale du système de 28% selon l’entreprise. Cet essai baptisé « Project Proton » a été réalisé par l’intermédiaire de la plateforme blockchain de Zilliqa (ZIL).

Microsoft, IBM, Intel et d’autres lancent un outil de classification des tokens

 Cache   

Classification tokens

La Token Taxonomy Initiative (TTI) a publié son premier outil de classification des tokens, comme l’explique un communiqué publié hier. Le Token Taxonomy Framework permettra aux entreprises intéressées de mieux développer leurs propres tokens.

Améliorer la classification des tokens

La TTI avait été annoncée dès avril 2019 par l’Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, un consortium d’entreprises rassemblé autour des technologies développées par l’altcoin. Face à une nébuleuse des altcoins extrêmement variée et souvent opaque, les entreprises avaient décidé d’apporter de la clarté au domaine. Plus précisément, il s’agissait de « définir un token dans des termes non techniques et pouvant s’appliquer à plusieurs industries, en utilisant des analogies courantes afin que chacun puisse les comprendre ». Ce gros travail de vulgarisation est censé amener de nouveaux utilisateurs dans l’industrie, et mieux faire comprendre comment fonctionnent les crypto-actifs.

Des outils de création de tokens pour les entreprises

Le Token Taxonomy Framework (TTF) V1.0, tel qu’il a été publié hier, permet également aux acteurs de l’industrie de publier de nouveaux tokens. Selon le communiqué, « les utilisateurs du TTF peuvent créer un nouveau type de token grâce à des composants réutilisables et applicables à des industries variées, y compris des définitions de tokens existantes. Cela permet de créer un cahier des charges qui inclut tous les ingrédients nécessaires à n’importe quelle implémentation en entreprise. »

L’initiative a rassemblé de grandes marques, parmi lesquelles JP Morgan, IBM, Microsoft, Intel et ConsenSys. Elle devrait permettre d’améliorer l’interopérabilité des blockchains, qui manque encore souvent à l’industrie, comme l’explique le président de la TTI Marley Gray. « Que ce soient des tickets, des documents logistiques, des actions, des titres de propriété, des points fidélité ou encore des produits et services blockchain qu’on n’a pas encore imaginés, les tokens devraient pouvoir circuler entre les plateformes. Si nous voulons vraiment tirer profit de ce que les plateformes collaboratives peuvent offrir, les transactions interplateformes doivent pouvoir communiquer entre elles. Cela commence par des normes, et ce nouveau système permet de débloquer le potentiel inexploité des tokens sur la blockchain. »

Du point de vue des entreprises, cela permet d’accéder à ces technologies sans avoir besoin de connaissances poussées, grâce à un modèle de type « build you own token ». « Une entreprise ou un consortium pourra sélectionner un token type sur lequel se baser. Il pourra ensuite choisir parmi une liste de caractéristiques et propriétés, pour les appliquer à son token, un peu comme lorsqu’on fait glisser des icônes sur un écran. [Cela permet] de créer un token de manière visuelle […] sans avoir à écrire de code. » Reste à voir si les entreprises se saisiront de ce nouvel outil.

Inde : le ministre de la Défense souhaite associer blockchain et armement

 Cache   

Inde armement

Le ministre de la Défense indien a évoqué la nécessité de moderniser l’armée du pays grâce à la blockchain et l’intelligence artificielle, comme le rapporte la publication locale Times of India le 4 novembre.

L’armée utilisera-t-elle la blockchain en Inde ?

Rajnath Singh a évoqué le sujet lundi, lors d’une conférence visant à planifier un événement annuel qui rassemble les acteurs du secteur de la défense en Inde : la DefExpo 2020. Le ministre a expliqué aux plus de 80 représentants mondiaux présents qu’il était souhaitable d’introduire de nouveaux outils au sein de l’armée indienne.

Selon lui, cette évolution est nécessaire pour s’adapter aux nouveaux dangers liés au domaine de la guerre : « Comme nous le savons tous, la nature de la guerre se transforme. Dans cette ère de l’information, le défi n’est pas seulement de se préparer pour toutes les éventualités, mais aussi de repousser des menaces provenant de plusieurs sources, tout en ayant les capacités d’y répondre de manière proactive si besoin. »

Pour cela, l’Inde doit se doter des dernières technologies, comme l’explique le ministre : « Le rôle de l’intelligence artificielle, des données de masses (Big Data) et de la blockchain a déjà révolutionné le paradigme actuel de la guerre. L’industrie de la défense est en train de connaître un bouillonnement qui incite à copier et utiliser ces technologies, afin de garantir la sûreté et la sécurité d’infrastructures essentielles. » On ne sait pour l’instant pas quelle forme pourrait prendre l’intégration de ces nouvelles technologies au domaine de l’armement en Inde.

L’Inde et la blockchain : une relation compliquée

L’Inde fait partie des pays qui ont un rapport ambivalent aux crypto-actifs. Son gouvernement envisage l’interdiction pure et simple des cryptodevises non gouvernementales… Mais compte quand même faire progresser les technologies liées aux registres distribués et à la blockchain dans le pays. Pour l’instant écartelée entre ces deux tendances, l’Inde pourrait cependant être plus ou moins forcée de réguler les cryptodevises prochainement. Le directeur de la State Bank of India (SBI), qui est détenue par l’État, a par ailleurs confirmé récemment qu’une réglementation rapide serait souhaitable.

Quoi qu’il en soit, ce n’est pas la première fois que la blockchain est évoquée pour améliorer le secteur de l’armement. Cet été, on apprenait ainsi que la Corée du Nord aurait monté des attaques cryptos afin de financer son programme d’armement. Et les fabricants d’armes russes ont également fait part de leur intérêt pour le sujet au cours des derniers mois.

Direct Solar America via its Direct Solar Capital Division currently finances commercial solar projects for multiple private equity funds throughout North America. With the SchollyME and Direct Solar America partnership we will be collectively raising capital to continue funding projects throughout North America.

The solar market has been growing at its fastest pace in recent history. According to Solar Energy Industries Association, "The U.S. solar industry now has the largest pipeline of utility-scale solar projects in history, signaling promising future prospects for solar energy development." And with new legislation being presented the American Energy Opportunity Act which aims to make the process easier to obtain solar we expect to see continued growth in the sector.

Furthering the growth in the solar market, California has Incorporated solar into state codes & standards, including implementation of the Building Energy Efficiency Standards (BEES) for solar on new homes, developing BEES for commercial buildings with solar and storage, and preventing problematic siting & permitting requirements for utility-scale solar. The state continues to invest and grow the solar footprint. Which SchollyME being based in California this puts Direct Solar instantly in the largest solar market in the United States.

SchollyME has been working with thousands of students securing over 300 scholarships. The interactive app continues to develop and grow. SchollyME Inc. is an incredible sports social network which gives fans a front row seat in the lives of their favorite athletes and coaches while connecting with fans across the globe. For high school and jr. college athletes, SchollyME encourages you to market and promote yourself to college coaches across the globe. SchollyME empowers you to go from discovered to offered with one click.

Beyond just high schools there are numerous opportunities through partnering with SchollyME. Intros to international markets such as China where Pablo Diaz and Mel Nunnery recently traveled on an "invite only" trip to attend the Chinese Electronic Chamber of Commerce conference. Being one of the world's most prestigious conferences, there were many attendees that are highly interested in seeing the collaboration of Direct Solar and SchollyME succeed as there is much business to do outside of the U.S. and expanding into international markets.

Direct Solar and SchollyME determine the best-case scenario to develop and bring to market the first application to buy solar online or through a mobile device from inception to financing and closing. The future of residential solar will follow the path of other large purchases such as cars through Tesla and Carvana. Consumers are becoming comfortable making these large purchases online with the right education and trusted partner. Direct Solar of America will guide consumers through the entire process providing any assistance needed along the way through implementation of AI and customer service agents available to answer any questions. Overall the company looks to create and launch an industry changing way to purchase solar.

Digiriigi häkatoni võitis lahendus, mis aitaks perevägivalla ohvreid

 Cache   
Teist korda toimunud Digiriigi häkatoni võitis eestlaste küberturvalisuse ettevõte Guardtime, kelle loodud lahenduse eesmärk oli luua usaldusväärne viis perevägivallaga seotud tõendmaterjali kogumiseks ja hilisemaks kasutamiseks. Esikoha pälvinud meeskond annetas 7000 euro suuruse võidusumma perevägivalla ohvrite abistamisega tegelevatele organisatsioonidele. IKT asekantsler Siim Sikkutil oli hea meel näha, et nii mitmed ettevõtted tulid taas kokku lahendamaks päriselu proleeme avalikus sektoris. „Loodan, et häkatoni tulemuseks on reaalse koostöö jätkamine riigi ja mitme ettevõtte vahel. Mitmed siin loodud lahendused on viimistluse järel koheselt kasutusvalmis ning teeksid riigi toimimise tõhusamaks, lihtsamaks ja inimesele mugavamaks,“ lisas Sikkut. Guardtime poolt häkatonil välja käidud lahenduse eesmärk oli luua usaldusväärne viis perevägivallaga seotud tõendmaterjali kogumiseks ja hilisemaks kasutamiseks - näiteks politseis või kohtus. "Kuna tegemist on äärmiselt tundliku teema ja tundlike andmetega, leidsime viisi, kuidas ohver saab blockchain-tehnoloogia abil koguda perevägivalla kohta digitaalseid andmeid nii, et vägivallatseja seda ei märkaks ja et andmeid poleks hiljem võimalik muuta," selgitas võidu pälvinud meeskonna juht Silver Kelk. Ka žürii esimehe, IKT-asekantsler Siim Sikkuti sõnul oli võidutöö puhul tegemist ühiskonna jaoks olulise teema ja tehniliselt tugeva teostusega. "Eks iga inimene ja ettevõte soovib oma tegevusega maailma paremaks muuta. Selline häkatoni vorm annab väga hea võimaluse pakkuda olulistele probleemidele lahendus, mis Eesti riiki ja ühiskonda paremaks muudavad," rääkis Kelk, kelle sõnul oli ka osalejatel endil põnev näha, kuidas kõigest 48 tunniga leiab üks probleem endale praktilise ja täiesti teostatava lahenduse. "Meil on väga hea meel, et saime anda oma panuse sedavõrd olulise ja terava küsimuse lahendamisesse." Kelk loodab, et Guardtime'i poolt annetatud 7000 euro suurune võidusumma perevägivalla ohvrite abistamisega tegelevatele organisatsioonidele ning edasine koostöö probleemi häkatonile toonud ministeeriumitega aitavad olukorda ühiskonnas leevendada. Ettevõtet Guardtime esindas neljaliikmeline meeskond, mida juhtis äriarenduse spetsialist Silver Kelk ning kuhu kuulusid disainijuht Veiko Jääger, tarkvarainsener Joosep Simm ja kasutusmugavuse insener Carol Tikerperi. 29.-31. maini toimunud järjekorras teine Digiriigi Häkaton tõi kokku 13 tehnoloogiaettevõtet, kes püüdsid 48 tunni jooksul lahendada erinevaid avaliku sektori päriselulisi probleeme. Arendustalgutel sai teise koha ettevõte Codeborne, kes lõi Vabariigi Presidendi Kantseleile ürituste korraldamise lahenduseja kolmas koht läks Nortalile, kes lõi rakenduse, mis aitaks paremini korraldada otsingu- ja päästetööde vabatahtlike tööd. Digiriigi häkatoni korraldas Majandus- ja Kommunikatsiooniministeerium koostöös Garage48-ga. Lisainfo ürituste sarja kodulehel https://hakaton.ee/.

Vantaggi economici, finanziari e sociali per le smart city

ESI ThoughtLab ha presentato in anteprima i risultati preliminari della sua ricerca "Smart City Research Initiative 2019,  Building a Hyperconnected City". Lo studio  ha preso in esame  100 città metropolitane  in tutto il mondo ed ha  scoperto che la maggior parte di queste  città  ha ottenuto molti vantaggi economici,  finanziari, e  sociali grazie agli investimenti  nelle tecnologie smart. Sono però aumentati anche i cyber-rischi quando tali tecnologie non sono gestite in modo adeguato.

Secondo lo studio, il 38% delle città che hanno implementato soluzioni di mobilità intelligente, hanno avuto un riscontro positivo dagli utenti e nel 32%  delle città, grazie ai miglioramenti nei tempi e nelle modalità di consegna delle merci, sono migliorati i tempi di produttività per le imprese. Nel 45% delle città che hanno implementato iniziative ambientali ed energetiche intelligenti  si stanno riscontrando miglioramenti per la salute dei cittadini, il 44% sta  riducendo l'inquinamento e il 43%  sta  stabilizzando i  prezzi dell'energia.   

La velocità del  cambiamento  tecnologico  è stata rapida. Wifi, IoT, Cloud, Mobile  sono  ormai  tecnologie pervasive in tutte le città smart, utilizzate da più di 9 cittadini su 10. Altre promettenti tecnologie che stanno diventando di uso comune  sono:  biometria  (83%  delle città), Intelligenza Artificiale (82%) e Blockchain (66%). Mentre robot e droni, 5G, realtà aumentata e elaborazione distribuita sono promettenti nuove tecnologie promettenti, ma ancora nelle prime fasi di utilizzo. 

L'uso di queste tecnologie sta trasformando l'ecosistema urbano portando: nuove  opportunità di business, miglioramento  della salute pubblica, riduzione del crimine, incremento della produttività. Inoltre questa trasformazione sta comportando vantaggi economici e finanziari che vanno oltre il recupero degli investimenti, procurando rendimenti tangibili soprattutto nel settore della mobilità e trasporti, energia, gestione dell'acqua, ambiente e rifiuti e pubblica sicurezza.

Ma l'uso di tecnologie smart espone le città a maggiori rischi informatici. Oltre la metà delle città analizzate ha dichiarato di  non essere ben preparata per affrontare gli attacchi informatici. Le  maggiori vulnerabilità dichiarate si riferiscono ai sistemi  finanziari e di pagamento (54%  delle città), alle telecomunicazioni (51%), alla mobilità e ai trasporti (40%). Per far fronte all'aumento dei rischi informatici, l'82% delle città  prevede di aumentare di importi significativi il proprio budget per la sicurezza informatica il prossimo anno.

Lo studio si  basa su un  rigoroso sondaggio di benchmarking  condotto  durante l'estate del 2019  da  ESI ThoughtLab e un gruppo intersettoriale di sponsor, tra cui Deloitte, Oracle,  Stantec , Pennoni ,  Eaton Lighting,  NTT Group, Nokia, Cognizant,  Visa e Microsoft . Il campione consisteva  di 100  città di diversa tipologia in  tutto il mondo  impegnate in  iniziative di smart city.

Lo studio completo  sarà presentato nel mese di novembre  allo Smart City Expo World Congress di Barcellona.

[Guerre di Rete - newsletter] Whatsapp contro NSO; Facebook e le pubblicità

 Cache   

Guerre di Rete - una newsletter di notizie cyber
a cura di Carola Frediani
N.50 - 3 novembre 2019

Di cosa si parla:

- Whatsapp contro NSO
- Facebook e gli ads
- I social e i documenti d’identità
- indagini forensi e Cellebrite
- e poi disinformazione, meme war e altro

WHATSAPP CONTRO NSO
Facebook e Whatsapp dichiarano guerra agli spyware
A maggio Whatsapp aveva annunciato di aver individuato e bloccato un attacco che sfruttava una vulnerabilità della sua funzione di video-chiamata (ne avevo scritto qua in newsletter). Un utente riceveva una video-chiamata, ma l’attaccante in realtà trasmetteva di nascosto un codice malevolo per infettare il telefono del ricevente. Non era necessario che la persona rispondesse alla chiamata.
Bene, ora, in questi giorni, dopo mesi di indagine, Whatsapp è uscita allo scoperto con una azione legale contro la società israeliana NSO, produttrice di trojan e spyware che vende a governi e intelligence, incolpandola degli attacchi subiti dai propri utenti. A dirlo è la stessa Whatsapp in un articolo sul Washington Post (testata non casuale, vi ricordo che ci sono sospetti - respinti da NSO, che finora ha sempre negato coinvolgimenti - che degli spyware siano stati usati contro l’entourage del suo editorialista Jamal Khashoggi, brutalmente ucciso dai sauditi, secondo la stessa intelligence Usa).
Come hanno ricondotto gli attacchi a NSO?
Gli attaccanti avrebbero usato server e servizi di hosting già associati a NSO, nonché account Whatsapp.
Chi erano i target?
Secondo l’azione legale promossa da Whatsapp, NSO avrebbe costruito una piattaforma di hacking che sfruttava una vulnerabilità dei server Whatsapp per aiutare i clienti a violare i cellulari di almeno 1400 utenti, tra aprile e maggio 2019.
Whatsapp avrebbe individuato almeno 100 attivisti dei diritti umani, giornalisti e membri della società civile in tutto il mondo, dagli Usa agli EAU, dal Bahrein al Messico, dal Pakistan all’India.
Un nome ad almeno una vittima
Uno di questi è stato intervistato dalla BBC. Si chiama Faustin Rukundo, vive a Leeds (UK) ma proviene dal Rwanda del cui regime è un oppositore, e ad aprile aveva ricevuto delle strane chiamate su Whatsapp da un numero svedese. Aveva provato a richiamare ma nessuno aveva mai risposto. Solo di recente ha scoperto di essere uno dei 1400, dopo aver ricevuto una chiamata dai ricercatori del Citizen Lab, che hanno contribuito alle indagini.
I target governativi
Ma ce ne sono altre di vittime, che potrebbero dare un risvolto geopolitico alla faccenda. Secondo Reuters, infatti, una porzione “significativa” di vittime erano funzionari governativi e militari di alto profilo, sparsi per 20 paesi, molti di nazioni alleate agli Usa. Uno scenario che apre la possibilità che alcuni clienti di NSO abbiano usato i suoi servizi non per fare indagini interne, ma per operazioni di spionaggio. Il professore di studi strategici e cyberwar Thomas Rid nota che mentre il ministro di Giustizia Usa chiede backdoor per Facebook/Whatsapp, militari e funzionari di governi amici venivano attaccati proprio con una backdoor (involontaria ovviamente). Come dire: qui il problema è rafforzare la sicurezza, non aumentare i buchi nella gruviera.
Da notare che Whatsapp avrebbe prima verificato la lista dei target con il database di possibili richieste da parte di Stati relative ad indagini, come terrorismo o pedofilia, ma non avrebbe trovato sovrapposizioni.
Cosa vuole ottenere la causa mossa da Whatsapp?
L’azienda controllata da Facebook ritene che quegli attacchi siano stati un abuso della sua rete; vuole una ingiunzione per fermare NSO dall’accedere alla sua piattaforma; ritiene che anche se NSO ha fornito i servizi a dei clienti, sia comunque responsabile in quanto architetto del software (BBC)
Che possibilità ha di vincerla?
La strada è in salita, secondo una analisi di Wired. In pratica Whatsapp sta accusando NSO di violazione del Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (e di altre leggi statali), ma il caso è un tentativo ardito di usare quella legge per “punire non solo gli hacker che hanno violato i computer di una azienda, ma anche quelli che sfruttano i suoi software per violare i computer dei suoi utenti”. Nel mentre però, c’è almeno un campo d’azione su cui Whatsapp sembra voler giocare. Infatti secondo alcuni voci non confermate, i dipendenti di NSO si sarebbero trovati chiusi tutti i loro account Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram (ht Alex Stamos)
Il ruolo di NSO
La causa di Whatsapp - che allega vari materiali e manuali interni di NSO - getta però nuova luce sul funzionamento del software della società israeliana e i suoi rapporti con i clienti. E mostra un ruolo più attivo di quello che si pensasse nell’assistenza degli stessi. Ad esempio, scrive Vice, nel confezionare messaggi di phishing per specifici target.

FACEBOOK
Pubblicità politiche, che fare?

Abbiamo visto che Facebook ha deciso di non fare fact checking sulle pubblicità dei politici, una decisione che ha raccolto varie critiche. Ora si aggiunge una lettera interna di 250 dipendenti, secondo la quale permettere ai politici di mentire nelle pubblicità è una minaccia alla stessa azienda (NYT).
Cosa dice la lettera?
“La libertà di espressione (free speech) e la propaganda (paid speech) non sono la stessa cosa. La cattiva informazione (misinformation) ci riguarda tutti”. La decisione di non fare fact checking sui politici è una minaccia a quello in cui crede Facebook (...) “perché permette di trasformare la nostra piattaforma in un’arma prendendo di mira persone che credono che i contenuti postati dai politici siano veri”.
Il suggerimento è dunque di considerare gli ads politici come gli altri, ma nel contempo usare sistemi visuali per far capire ancora di più che sono ads. Inoltre - punto importante - i dipendenti suggeriscono di limitare il targeting per gli ads politici. Attualmente è normale per un politico caricare la lista degli elettori per poi usare gli strumenti di tracking comportamentale (come i pixel) e l’engagement con le pubblicità per raffinare ancora di più gli ads. Il rischio è che le persone non possano avere la possibilità di controllare pubblicamente quanto viene detto. “Inoltre questi ads sono così microtargeted (mirati su gruppi specifici, ndr) che le conversazioni sulla nostra piattaforma sono ancora più rinchiuse dentro silo separati di altre”. Infine, esplorare la possibilità di un silenzio elettorale.
(Per inciso, proprio di microtargeting e di questo problema ho parlato sabato su Omnibus - La 7, min 47)
La proposta
La situazione è molto mutevole e dinamica. In queste ore sul piatto c’era infatti anche una proposta da parte di una delle società che fanno fact checking per Facebook di trovare un sistema bipartisan per fare fact checking anche sugli ads politici. Vedremo (CNN)
La provocazione
Mentre si svolgeva questo dibattito, un politico e attivista di San Francisco, Adriel Hampton, si registrava come candidato a governatore con lo scopo di pubblicare pubblicità false su Facebook, in una sorta di atto dimostrativo (CNN).

PROPOSTE ITALIANE
Documenti per usare i social? Anche no, dai

Per un qualche motivo che mi è incomprensibile (nella sua essenza, non nei fattori esterni scatenanti), siamo di nuovo tornati a parlare di proposte di legge per far presentare i documenti (carte d’identità ecc) agli utenti che vogliano usare un social network o un servizio online pensando in tal modo di eliminare o ridurre l’odio online. Proposte che negli anni sono state sempre bocciate da una miriade di esperti e quindi accantonate. Ora c’è stata la proposta del deputato Marattin (qui la sua intervista a Corriere), e dunque è ripartito un film già visto.
Mi limito a mettere dei link, iniziando con un momento amarcord:
2014, copertina di Wired: Fabio Chiusi e la sottoscritta scrivevamo perché chiedere i documenti fosse inutile se non dannoso. Ma il tempo passa e i temi ritornano dunque….
In questa settimana del 2019:
- Profili sui social network e carta d'identità: perché non è possibile
L'idea di "schedare" tutti i cittadini che abbiano un profilo social pone problemi tecnici, giuridici e politici insormontabili (Giovanni Ziccardi)
- Odio e disinformazione (che sono ovunque per strada, in TV, sui social) sono una seria questione culturale. Come si affrontano? (Arianna Ciccone)
- Disinformazione, propaganda, bugie, minacce, insulti, provocazioni, odio hanno diritto di cittadinanza in Rete? (Fabio Chiusi su Valigia Blu)
- La lesione dei diritti dei cittadini è da sempre un chiaro tema reazionario (ok, il suo vero titolo è un po’ più tranchant) (Il Post - Massimo Mantellini)
- Una sparata controproducente (Radio dell’avvocatura - Francesco Micozzi - audio)
- Perché questo genere di proposte sono inutili - uno Stefano Zanero già di qualche mese fa (ma sul tema direi d’annata, come il vino buono).
- Velleitario e pericoloso (dichiarazioni Garante Privacy)
Mi fermo qua, anche se ho lasciato fuori molti altri interventi, ma se mi costringete a riparlarne, la prossima volta ve li metto tutti, ok?

Riassunto e disegnino semplificato per chi non ha tempo o voglia: quel tipo di proposta per quel tipo di problema equivale ad avere le zanzare in casa e a sparar loro cannonate. Le zanzare restano, i buchi nei muri rendono la tua casa (i diritti di tutti) ancora più fragile. Meglio mettere degli zampironi e modificare l’aria che si respira.
Dunque oltre a investire massicciamente, in modo pianificato, a tutti i livelli, in cultura digitale (un tipo di formazione che sarà cruciale per la nostra sopravvivenza come nazione avanzata, detto en passant) e in educazione civica e cultura generale, si può chiedere, ad esempio:
- al governo: molte più risorse a magistratura e postale per indagare su reati
- alle piattaforme: procedure più snelle ed efficienti per ottenere i dati in caso di indagine
- alle piattaforme: canali più diretti con gli utenti che siano vittima di attacchi organizzati e sistemi per tutelare categorie più deboli o esposte
- alle piattaforme: spiegazioni chiare e trasparenza quando decidono di rimuovere contenuti in violazione delle loro policy, procedure chiare per appellare tali decisioni, revisione umana di decisioni automatizzate
-alle piattaforme: più strumenti in mano al singolo utente per gestire come preferisce il proprio feed, quello che vede, quello che vedono gli altri, come interagire con altri ecc
-alle piattaforme: trasparenza massima sulle pubblicità, specie quelle politiche, valutare se limitarle in qualche modo o fare altri controlli
- ai politici: chiedere di abbassare i toni, non aggredire utenti, non aizzare folle online e offline, tenere sotto controllo i propri spazi social ecc
- ai media: non dare rilevanza, se possibile, ai primi 4 idioti che insultano qualcuno online per ottenere esattamente quello, visibilità.
E ovviamente molto altro, ma era solo per dare un assaggio di come inquadrare diversamente la questione.

CINA E BLOCKCHAIN
Fedeli alla blockchain

Abbiamo visto che la Cina si è lanciata sulla blockchain con anche investitura dall’alto di Xi Jinping. Ora il partito comunista cinese ha chiesto ai suoi membri di attestare la loro fedeltà su blockchain. Chissà cosa ne penserebbe Satoshi Nakamoto. Ad ogni modo si potrebbe usare anche per le promesse elettorali dei nostri politici…. (si scherza)

Da una breve ricognizione mi pare che i deepfake su celebrità (e non) in India siano molto diffusi. Un anno fa una giornalista indiana schierata a difesa dei diritti delle donne era stata presa di mira con deepfake pornografici.

Il caso Boettcher e lo sblocco del suo iPhone

La società israeliana Cellebrite - che si occupa di estrarre dati da dispositivi - ha pubblicato un caso studio in cui descrive come sono stati usati i suoi servizi in una vicenda di cronaca giudiziaria italiana, quello della coppia Boettcher/Lovato, e della aggressione con l’acido all’ex fidanzato di lei. Tra i reperti sequestrati a Boettcher c'era un iPhone, protetto da un PIN di 4 cifre che il ragazzo diceva di non ricordare. Come indicato nel case study, le consulenti dei legali di parte civile avevano già rinvenuto e analizzato un backup dell'iPhone che però risultava essere stato prodotto un paio di mesi prima dell'aggressione: per poter avere un quadro completo della vicenda si decise quindi di provare ad accedere direttamente all'iPhone. Era l’inizio del 2015. I magistrati allora incaricano un noto ed esperto consulente informatico forense, Mattia Epifani, di capire come gestire la situazione e presentare loro tutte le opzioni sul tavolo per provare a ottenere anche quei dati. Alla fine viene scelto di provare con Cellbrite, riferisce il rapporto.
“L'aspetto rilevante che Cellebrite evidenzia nel suo case study - commenta a Guerre di Rete Paolo Dal Checco, altro noto ed esperto consulente informatico forense - è che Cellebrite è stata in grado di sbloccare un iPhone protetto da PIN in un momento nel quale il loro servizio era l'unico disponibile, a parte alcune soluzioni rischiose che funzionavano solamente in particolari condizioni. L'incarico relativo allo sblocco dell'iPhone di Boettcher, inoltre, è stato tra i primi conferiti ufficialmente dall'Autorità Giudiziaria italiana alla società israeliana e ha dato il via a una serie d'incarichi conferiti ancora oggi, ovviamente su dispositivi più recenti”.

На стыке технологий, бизнеса и права

Современные тренды в области финтеха на основе кейсов одной ИТ-компании обсудили участники семинара ТЕКО: Direct Speech. Мероприятие прошло 1 ноября на столичной ивент-площадке Таблица. Его организаторами выступила международная процессинговая платформа ТЕКО совместно с НСФР и инновационным центром «Сколково».


В ходе семинара ТЕКО вместе со своими партнерами, в числе которых были компания Теле 2, инновационный центр «Сколково», Росбанк, GroupIB на примере конкретных кейсов описали, как в реальных условиях внедрялись и применялись различные разработки компании: BoxRetail (решение для централизации систем управления ритейл-бизнесом), OpenOne (единый реестр данных для всех участников сделки – банков, дилеров, розницы, процессинговых систем), кросс-сейл (страховки и пр. продукты), ThunderBot (поддержка, новые каналы привлечения клиентов, роботизация процессов), системы информационной безопасности.

О высокой значимости взаимодействия банков и финтеха, открывая мероприятие, сказал Андрей Емелин, председатель Национального совета финансового рынка (НСФР): «Участники финансового рынка расценивают сотрудничество с представителями финтеха, как одно из главных стратегических направлений». По словам главы НСФР, в ситуации, когда большинство российских банков в силу целого ряда ограничений с точки зрения регуляторики, информационной безопасности вынуждены вести себя осторожно и консервативно в плане внедрения инноваций, финтех-компании показывают себя более гибкими и динамичными сподвижниками технологического прогресса в сфере финансов. Для НСФР, как отметил Андрей Емелин, принципиально важно погрузиться в вопросы информационной безопасности, внешнего взаимодействия с государственными информационными системами, прийти к пониманию базовых технологических моментов, чтобы в дальнейшем ретранслировать это понимание банкам и другим участникам финансового рынка при работе над формированием нормативной базы и профильного законодательства. «Финансовая сфера становится все больше и больше цифровой. А финтех сегодня находится на стыке технологий, права и бизнеса. На нашем сегодняшнем мероприятии НСФР представляет область права, банки – бизнес, а ТЕКО – технологии», – сказал Андрей Емелин. Именно это единение, по его словам, дает ту синергию, которая позволяет российскому финансовому рынку оставаться в авангарде в сфере диджитал на мировом уровне.

В роли модератора мероприятия выступил Тимур Аитов, заместитель председателя комиссии по цифровым финансовым технологиям совете Торгово-промышленной палаты РФ по финансово-промышленной и инвестиционной политике, заместитель генерального директора группы компаний «Программный продукт».

Илья Безруков, управляющий директор группы компаний ТЕКО, призвал крупный бизнес активнее заказывать разработки у стартапов. При этом он заметил, что членство в НСФР позволило ТЕКО наладить коммуникации и донести технически прогрессивные идеи компании до руководства крупнейших банков, ритейл- и телеком-компаний. Его подержал Павел Новиков, директор центра компетенций Fintech & Blockchain инновационного центра «Сколково», который назвал мифом то, что крупные банки способны исключительно сами придумывать и создавать инновационные финансовые продукты. Кроме того, он отметил, что на принятие решения о необходимости того или иного решения у банка могут уйти месяцы, тогда как маленькие технологичные компании работают в этом плане практически моментально.

При этом он привел данные недавних исследований McKinsey&Company, согласно которым банки в мире тратят на инновации 35% своего бюджета, тогда как финтех-компании – 70%. Там же говорится, что 50% банков будут уязвимы перед новым экономическим кризисом, при том, что банковский бизнес становится все менее рентабельным – доходность на капитал у 36% банков составляет лишь 1,6%. Для сравнения он привел показатели Банка Тинькофф и Сбербанка, у которых ROE соответственно – 60% и 23%, но которые очень много вкладываются в финтех. «Самая крупная ИТ-компания России – это вообще Сбербанк. И по объемам инвестиций, по количеству занятых по ИТ-направлению людей», – констатировал Павел Новиков.

Анализ, проведенный ИЦ «Сколково» показал, что у финтех-стартапов – резидентов Сколково в 2018 году больше всего было заключено контрактов именно с банками – более 200. Самым большим «потребителем» стартапов является Сбербанк, который в этом году в той или иной форме привлек к своей работе 23 финтех-компании. Тинькофф занимает третье место (14 стартапов). На второе вышел ВТБ, который с недавних пор очень активно включился в процесс цифровизации и сумел привлечь 18 технологических компаний с их придуманными решениями. В среднем банки, входящие в топ-10 заключили по 10 контрактов со стартапами. Средняя выручка финтех-стартапов – резидентов Сколково за прошлый год составила 65 млн рублей. При этом единственным способом для выживания некрупных банков, не обладающих достаточными ресурсами для самостоятельного технологического развития, Павел Новиков назвал укрупнение или объединение в открытые финтех-комьюнити. Или, как альтернативный рецепт – фокусировка на отдельных бизнес-нишах с соответствующей «оцифровкой».

Самим стартапам эксперт посоветовал стараться как можно быстрее выходить на экспорт. «В России весь венчурный рынок за 2018 год – $410 млн. В мире $250 млрд. То есть у нас всего 0,16% от всех венчурных инвестиций. Здесь деньги привлечь невозможно. Государство пытается частично заместить недостающие частные средства, но этого явно недостаточно. «Поэтому максимально быстро нужно выходить на экспорт», —сказал он.

Евгений Кананович, директор по информационным технологиям ТЕКО, рассказал о формировании экосистемы ТЕКО и провел краткий обзор продуктов, которые в ходе мероприятия более подробно презентовали менеджеры компании, а также представители партнеров.

В ИЦ «Сколково» прошел VIII Международный форум инновационного развития «Открытые инновации»


Трехдневная программа «Открытых инноваций» включила свыше 150 сессий, на которых выступили более 650 спикеров – это представители науки, бизнеса и органов государственной власти. В выставочной экспозиции инноваторы представили свыше 160 высокотехнологичных решений, созданных российскими стартапами при поддержке институтов развития. Тему форума его организаторы сформулировали так: «Цифровая нация. Трансфер к интеллектуальной экономике». 

Фото: Sk.ru.

Премьер-министр правительства РФ Дмитрий Медведев, открывая пленарное заседание, обозначил главные вызовы, которые ставит перед государствами глобальная цифровизация: обеспечение кибербезопасности, адаптация образовательной системы к последствиям автоматизации производств и перестройки рынка труда, решение вопросов правового регулирования. Дмитрий Медведев, признав определенные сложности на этом пути, призвал не бояться их и напомнил, как Лев Толстой отозвался о произведениях Леонида Андреева: «Он пугает, а мне не страшно». Мне кажется, рассуждения о том, что будет, должны вписываться именно в эту формулу. Нам не должно быть страшно, развитие не остановить».

Председатель Фонда «Сколково» Аркадий Дворкович тоже говорил о цифре. А еще о цифре «9», имея в виду возраст инновационного центра, которому в следующем году исполнится 10 лет. По оценке Дворковича, ИЦ «Сколково» окончил девятилетку, а следующий учебный год станет десятым. «Мы хотим окончить десятилетку на отлично. Однако сможем это сделать, если станем работать вместе, ориентироваться на бизнес и превращать самые необычные и фантастические идеи в конкретные проекты, новые технологии и новые подходы к тому, как устраивать нашу жизнь. Это делают тысячи компаний, которые работают в «Сколково» и вместе со «Сколково». Это делают тысячи бизнесменов, сотни ученых, студенты «Сколтеха». Только соединение всех этих усилий сможет дать тот результат, которого мы хотим достигнуть», – сказал председатель фонда, открывая форум.

В ходе обсуждения прозвучало много ярких высказываний. Председатель правления УК «Роснано» и Фонда инфраструктурных и образовательных программ Анатолий Чубайс считает, что инноваторам нужна «длинная» воля и умение найти быстрорастущий рынок на той стадии, когда никто в него не верит.

Программа «Открытых инноваций» в этом году включала в себя Телемедфорум, практический бизнес-форум по системам искусственного интеллекта RAIF, технологическую конференцию Bloomberg Sooner Than You Think, международный конкурс East Bound, финал федерального Конкурса инноваций в образовании.

Ярким событием форума стала презентация Московского инновационного кластера (МИК). МИК – это платформа для взаимодействия всех, кто хочет создать новый продукт или услугу в сфере инноваций, ищет партнеров для проекта, а также нацелен на активное развитие. Для презентации проекта были приглашены Дэвид Роуэн, основатель британского журнала Wired UK, Джерри Цзи (Alibaba Group), Евгений Кузнецов (ООО «Орбита Капитал Партнерз»), Александр Бородич (Universa Blockchain). Они рассказали о преимуществах и перспективах, которые дает ИТ-платформа кластера, а также о ее самых значимых сервисах для бизнеса.

Спикеры сессии «Технологии как бренд. Как город становится суперзвездой» разобрали кейсы трансформации городской инфраструктуры в результате внедрения инноваций. «Умный город – не ярлык, не красивый бренд. Единственной целью реализации таких проектов является счастье граждан», – высказал свое мнение Эммануэль Форрест, исполнительный вице-президент Bouygues group. По мнению эксперта, цифровизация городских сервисов и услуг должна создавать комфортную среду для жизни. Главный архитектор Москвы Сергей Кузнецов принял участие в сессии «Парк или соцсеть? Мегаполис как гибридное пространство коммуникации». Дискуссия развивалась в понятном ключе: мегаполисы создают новую коммуникационную среду, в которой горожане, с одной стороны, все больше времени проводят в виртуальном пространстве, с другой – все больше потребляют физическое пространство города, находясь одновременно и в физическом, и в онлайн-пространстве. И одно другому не мешает, даже наоборот.

За три дня на полях форума были подписаны 29 соглашений между российскими и международными компаниями, фондами и институтами развития. Среди них партнерское соглашение об открытии в ИЦ «Сколково» корпоративного стартап-акселератора Orange Fab; подписание основных условий создания японо-российского фонда «Новые рубежи»; меморандум о сотрудничестве Фонда «Сколково» и Минздрава России в области цифровой медицины; соглашение Фонда содействия инновациям и Фонда «Росконгресс» о сотрудничестве в рамках проекта «Бизнес Приорити». Форум посетили более 20 000 человек. География участников форума включала 102 страны, в том числе Германию, Корею, США, Японию, Францию, Великобританию, Австралию, Тунис. Соорганизаторы Форума «Открытые инновации» — Министерство экономического развития РФ, правительство Москвы, Фонд «Сколково», РВК, Фонд инфраструктурных и образовательных программ, Фонд содействия инновациям, Государственная корпорация развития «ВЭБ.РФ».

There is an increase in the number of network attacks such as APTs, man-in-the-middle, and DDoS by hackers and cybercriminals. This is encouraging many enterprises to adopt software-defined perimeter (SDP) because SDP analyzes the incoming traffic and immediately blocks them in case they are malicious in nature. It also automates the process and creates a perimeter for the data center and cloud infrastructure. Thus, the increase in network attacks across the globe will boost the growth of the software-defined perimeter (SDP) market during the forecast period.

CX: Rohit Amberker (Productivity Paradox)

 Cache   

Rohit Amberker opens this episode of Pace of Change with a clear disclaimer: he is no expert on this week’s topic. However, he does have some experience and insights on the Productivity Paradox. Rohit opens by outlining the definition and history of the Productivity Paradox. Then he moves on to the meat of the topic. Ultimately, the goal of technology is to create customer-centric value from something that doesn’t currently exist. As technology’s capabilities exponentially expand, the Productivity Paradox gap is shortening. Rohit looks to the past to shape the future by exemplifying Facebook and Amazon and examines the current “gap” in AI and blockchain.

Objavljen raspored 15. Advanced Technology Daysa

Dvodnevni program donosi 67 predavanja koja će se paralelno odvijati u 5 dvorana Plaza Event Centra

Upravo je objavljen raspored predavanja 15. izdanja Advanced Technology Daysa powered by Microsoft, koji će se održati u Plaza Event Centru u Zagrebu 4. i 5. prosinca. Tijekom dva dana IT publiku čeka 67 predavanja koja će se paralelno odvijati u 5 dvorana. Najaktualnije IT teme, od razvoja mobilnih i web rješenja, kontejnera i DevOpsa do modernih podatkovnih tehnologija, AI, hibridnog oblaka, Serverlessa i poslovnih IT rješenja, plus vrhunski domaći i strani predavači čine formulu za uspjeh jedne od najdugovječnijih IT konferencija. ATD je IT mjesto za IT zajednicu jer se fokusira na aktualne izazove, temama pristupa stručno i beskompromisno te nudi niz prilika za učenje, networking i druženje.


Sadržaj objedinjava top globalne IT trendove, ključne lokalne teme te uspješne praktične primjere o kojima će na ATD-u govoriti isključivo stručnjaci koji su i sudjelovali u razvoju i implementaciji pojedinog alata, usluge ili rješenja. Neformalno okruženje i opuštena, prijateljska atmosfera sudionicima omogućavaju interakciju s predavačima i s drugim sudionicima, razmjenu iskustava i stjecanje novih znanja i kontakata.

Konferencijski jubilej obilježit će 56 predavača, među kojima je niz onih koji prvi puta dolaze na konferenciju. Marko Rakar, CEO tvrtke MRAK services, jedan je od najpopularnijih i najzanimljivijih govornika na domaćim konferencijama, a na ATD-u će održati predavanje Digitalni tragovi koje će se baviti digitalnim tragovima koje ostavljamo, jesmo li svjesni gdje ih sve i kako ostavljamo te kako se mogu upotrijebiti proziv nas. Igor Rončević, softverski arhitekt u austrijskom AVL-u, imat će dva predavanja: Entity Framework Core Hidden Gems i Modern C# Linting. Na prvom predavanju će na primjerima iz svoje konzultantske prakse predstaviti korisna, no manje poznata svojstva EF Corea te ilustrirati kako ta svojstva nezgrapna rješenja u podatkovnom sloju „pretvaraju“ u performantna i jednostavnija za pisanje i održavanje. Također će donijeti i pregled arhitektura podatkovnog sloja, od dokazanih u praksi do teoretski odličnih, no neprimjenjivih u praktičnim slučajevima. Na svom drugom predavanju bavit će se Lintingom, odnosno postupkom poboljšavanja kvalitete koda uz pomoć tzv. statičke analize koda.

ATD14 velika dvorana

 

Luka Gospodnetić, IT konzultant / solution arhitect i developer u PKE Sistemima, također će održati dva predavanja, Through desert and wilderness to .NET Core Enterprise app. i Can we all just agree for once – Blockchain Consensus. Pozabavit će se osmišljavanjem dobre i održive arhitekture za .NET Core aplikacije te pokazati primjere i praktične slučajeve te iznijeti svoj stav zašto je potrebno postići konsenzus o Blockchain sustavima bez oslanjanja na neko centralno tijelo koje uživa povjerenje cijele zajednice. Razmotrit će i kritike na račun Bitcoina, prvog blockchaina poznatog po konsenzusnom algoritmu Proof of Work, koji je trpio i trpi žestoke kritike. Nakon dvije godine pauze, na ATD se kao predavač vraća i Luka Manojlovič, slovenski konzultant i eksterni sistemski administrator te Microsoft MVP za područja Consumer Security, Management Infrastructure i Small Business Server. Održat će predavanje Storage spaces direct u Windows server 2019 – notes from the field na kojem će govoriti o svim novostima koje je Microsoft uveo predstavivši najnoviji serverski operativni sustav te pokazati neke realne scenarije i iskustva implementacije rješenja S2D. Detalji o ostalim predavanjima mogu se pronaći u rasporedu na web stranici na kojoj će sudionici pronaći i termin, lokaciju predavanja te kratke biografije predavača da bi mogli što bolje isplanirati dva konferencijska dana.

Organizator ATD-a su predstavnici hrvatske IT zajednice, a operativnu pomoć pri organizaciji pruža im agencija MPG. Programski odbor 15. izdanja čine Marin Franković, Filip Glavota, Ivan Marković, Domagoj Pavlešić, Ivan Pranjić, Ilija Ranogajec, Tomislav Tipurić i Vedran Vučetić.

Prijave za konferenciju otvorene su online. Cijena kotizacije iznosi 950,00 kn + PDV za oba konferencijska dana.

Förderprogramm JumpStart schafft für Jungunternehmen den passenden Rahmen

 Cache   

Das Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW) hat gemeinsam mit der Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (aws) die dritte Ausschreibungsrunde des Programms JumpStart erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Aus 24 eingereichten Projekten hat eine unabhängige Expertenjury die besten Konzepte ausgewählt, die nun als Inkubatoren mit jeweils bis zu 150.000 Euro unterstützt werden. Diese sind: Female Founders, Lemmings und The Ventury aus Wien, Climate KIC aus Niederösterreich und I.E.C.T. aus Tirol. Schwerpunkt des Programms liegt dabei auf der Unterstützung und Weiterentwicklung heimischer Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren, die innovativen Start-ups nicht nur Büro-, Labor-, oder Produktionsflächen, sondern insbesondere maßgeschneiderte Beratungsleistungen zur Verfügung stellen.

„Unsere innovativen Start-ups brauchen die besten Rahmenbedingungen. Mit dem JumpStart-Programm leisten wir einen wichtigen Beitrag, um aus Ideen erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle zu machen. Besonders positiv ist, dass wir in dieser Runde mit der Unterstützung von Female Founders auch gezielt Frauen in Start-ups unterstützen können. Wir brauchen mehr Gründerinnen und dafür braucht es neben Mut und Eigeninitiative auch entsprechende Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt Wirtschaftsministerin Margarete Schramböck.

Projekte aus ganz Österreich

Im Rahmen der dritten Ausschreibungsrunde wurden 24 Anträge aus ganz Österreich eingereicht. Neben bekannten und in der Szene fest verankerten Akteuren konnten in dieser Runde auch viele junge Initiativen angesprochen werden. Die Bandbreite der Bewerber und der ausgewählten Projekte reichte dabei von „Stand-alone“- über Corporate-Inkubatoren und Technologiezentren bis hin zu akademischen Akzeleratoren und verteilt sich über alle Start-up-relevanten Branchen, wie Life Sciences, IT, Web/Mobile, Dienstleistungen und Hardware.

„Um ihre Ideen umzusetzen, brauchen Start-ups neben finanziellen Ressourcen eine Arbeitsumgebung, in der sie sich ganz auf ihre Projekte konzentrieren und gleichzeitig von der Vernetzung und vom lebendigen Erfahrungsaustausch mit anderen Start-ups profitieren können. Mit aws JumpStart unterstützen wir die besten Inkubatoren und schaffen damit die notwendigen Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt die aws Geschäftsführung, Edeltraud Stiftinger und Bernhard Sagmeister.

In einem ersten Schritt wurden in der Förderungsschiene nun geeignete Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren ausgewählt und unterstützt. Damit wird für Unternehmungen ein produktiver und unbürokratischer Rahmen geschaffen, in dem sie sich entwickeln können. Zudem brauchen besonders innovative Start-ups auch selbst Finanzierung. In einem zweiten Modul des Förderungsprogramms werden daher vielversprechende Start-ups auch direkt unterstützt. Bis zu fünf der Unternehmen, die sich in einem JumpStart Inkubator/ Akzelerator befinden, werden dazu ausgewählt. Pro Start-up ist eine Förderung von 22.500 Euro vorgesehen.

Die Projekte im Überblick:

TRA Organizes the “Activation the Fourth Industrial Revolution Tools in Government Work” Program

 Cache   
The training program (Activation the Fourth Industrial Revolution Tools in Government Work) started today, organized by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) as the main coordinator to achieve the national Online Service Index. The program aims to enable federal government employees to implement the tools and applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, and other topics that will be included in the program over the upcoming months. The first workshop of the program was attended by government services specialists, government strategy officials, human resources officers, and employees in the field of innovation, future foresight, advanced technologies, internet and government websites officials of a number of government entities.

This program is part of the national goal initiatives, the country's preparations for future and its foresight and shaping in line with the UAE visions and future goals. The program utilizes AI and blockchain in the workplace to reach the next step of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and to fulfill the UAE's national, regional and global commitments to achieve the plan of transferring 50% of government transactions to the blockchain platform by 2021.

On this program, H.E, Salem Al Housani, Acting Deputy Director General for the Telecommunication Sector in TRA, and OSI Executive Team Leader, said: “Talking about AI and Fourth Industrial Revolution is no longer a future foresight. Humanity has already entered this era, which is coming gradually evident, thus it is time to apply these new technologies in a practical and wide manner in our government work. The UAE's smart and speedy services require us to make the most of AI technologies, and adapt these technologies to contribute to the achievement of a competitive national economy based on knowledge, innovation and future technological applications that integrate physical, digital and dynamic technologies, in line with the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, launched by the UAE Government in September 2017”.

H.E. Al Housani emphasized that this program aims to fuel the flame of innovation and creativity among employees in the government sector, and encourage individuals to think of extraordinary solutions to the problems arising from the rapid developments. He said: “Through this program, we provide government employees with the necessary tools that enable them to benefit from the techniques of AI and blockchain in the development of government work, and to reach a more stimulating and productive work environment, which will have a significant impact on the development of work and achieving targets as well as the UAE visions and future goals.”

The program will cover two main topics: AI and blockchain, in addition to a number of sub-topics. The program will include an introduction to AI, the role of AI in the development of government services, the use of robots in government work, and the application of AI in human resources and finance. Additionally, the program will address the application of blockchain technologies in government operations and investment returns in the short and long term, solutions and tools available for the application of blockchain technologies in government work, and the challenges and solutions of this application.

Through the program, participants will learn how AI and blockchain technology can support government employees to save time, effort and resources, and how to use AI and blockchain in digital transactions, the role of these technologies in providing a double shield against cyberattacks, and raising the level of protection of data and information and thus contribute to the overall cyber security of the government,

Participants will also learn how blockchain contributes to reducing operational costs and speeding up decision-making, how to use both technologies combined to improve the speed of transfer of information and data and enable customers to interact better and faster with government entities.

The UAE Government launched the UAE Fourth Industrial Revolution Strategy in September 2017. This Strategy is based on several key pillars, including “the human of the future” by improving the outcomes of the education sector based on advanced technology and science, in addition to adopting plans and strategies in the field of genomics, the genomic medical tourism through improving healthcare levels, developing personalized medical solutions and genomic medicines as needed, focusing on robotic healthcare, utilizing robotics and nanotechnology, to enhance the possibilities of providing remote health and surgical care services. Moreover, enhancing economic security through the adoption of a digital economy, digital transactions, achieving “Future Leadership” by investing in space research and enhancing the UAE position as a global platform for ambitious entities in the field of space studies, research, projects and investment.

✅GPM Carbon – green activated carbon production ✅

 Cache   

*Whatever you do, but every action has its consequences, so that the world does not happen. But, of course, positive actions are more likely to have good and pleasant consequences, therefore, negative ones will have destructive, and sometimes extremely terrible consequences. As evidenced in principle by our environment, which has long been sending us extremely disturbing news.* # Problems All of you probably know that the situation at the moment with the pollution of our Earth has reached such a peak and destruction that if you do not take this factor under strict control, it is unlikely that our children will be able to exist qualitatively on this Planet. After all, many of our actions depend on the purity of the air, water, soil and even food, which we so diligently grow for a full existence. However, while some are trying to do something, others, despite all the consequences, continue to pollute the environment with their products. _**Just as everything has its consequences, this expression applies to almost all mining enterprises, agriculture, nuclear and coal industries, whose actions directly cause harm and destruction of the entire environment.**_ And no matter how paradoxical it may sound, but also in industries aimed at protecting and cleaning the environment, millions of tons of waste are produced that pollute both the air and other areas of our environment. And I'm talking about traditional methods of production of activated carbon.

# Activated carbon Naturally, in order to fully understand and understand this issue, it is necessary to imagine at least a little what it is and what it is necessary for. And after all this to look for solutions to existing problems. That is why we are now, literally in a nutshell, will try to find out what is so useful in activated carbon and why do we need it at all?! **There are many areas and spheres of application of activated carbon. This includes areas such as:** * _Hydrosphere water treatment, including water treatment of various radioactive waste, sewage treatment, drinking water and so on;_ * _Treatment of the atmosphere implies the capture of various toxic fumes, air purification in residential and working areas, cleaning nuclear power plants, vehicles and much more;_ * _Treatment of the lithosphere, implies soil reclamation, as well as protection from various pesticides, sulfates and other sources of pollution;_ * _Purification of the human body, includes the production and development of many adsorbing agents, antibiotics, vitamins and other pharmaceuticals._ Thus, we see that the fields of application of activated carbon are innumerable and that its very application is of great benefit to each of the industries. But, be that as it may, the production of activated carbon itself does not always meet environmental standards. Since its extraction is due to high heat treatment, as a result of which countless pollutants are released to our environment. **To solve this problem, experts offer a new project, the concept and idea of which, we are now with you and consider.**

# About the project and its features And the old-fashioned way, I'll start with the name of the project itself, which is as follows [GPM Carbon](https://gpm-carbon.com). It is Important to note that the main objective of the project is to develop and organize environmentally friendly methods of extraction of activated carbon, while introducing modern tools and technologies. Moreover, the development itself will be based on a slightly different raw material base, which not only differs for the better in its performance, but its production costs many times less than that of traditionally used sources of raw materials. But in order not to be too verbose I will tell you about some of its characteristics. So, the raw material from which the founders of GPM Carbon intend to produce high-quality activated carbon is called (**Anthracite**). Its hardness, density, iodine activity and ash content meet the highest international standards. So, it has all chances to claim one of the best positions in this direction. Moreover, the extraction of activated carbon from this raw material is the most environmentally friendly.

# Advantages **As stated by the founders of this project, to achieve all their goals, they have everything you need, namely:** * _Always available all the necessary raw material, which serves as the basis for the production of activated carbon;_ * _Innovative and patented technology of production of activated carbon from this raw material, which makes it possible to significantly reduce all production costs. And also to minimize any other costs, which can not be said about the rest of the world's companies producing activated carbon;_ * _Ideal geographical location of production, which makes it very accessible to a large number of countries that use activated carbon in their production;_ * _At the same time, the GPM Carbon project has a full-fledged staff of the most highly qualified employees ready to work and work for the benefit of society. But this is not all._

# Why Is The Blockchain? I think you have already asked yourself this question: **_“why am I writing a review on this project, but still have not mentioned that it is based on blockchain”?!_** But really, in addition to the fact that the GPM Carbon project has a real business that seeks to bring to our world not only new and high-quality products (activated carbon), but also high-tech conditions of interaction. After all, each process from the moment of its beginning and end (destination), the GPM Carbon blockchain system will be responsible for the clarity, structure, immutability and security of all processes. Where online will be the control of all registers, marking of goods, its shipment, loading, delivery and many other minor points involved in the creation and distribution of activated carbon under the auspices of the GPM Carbon project.

# Token Naturally, in order to qualitatively perform all related transactions, a decent blockchain structure is needed. Which unconditionally, is able to guarantee high throughput, scalability, as well as a built-in system of smart contracts, the use of which will allow you to competently record absolutely all transactions. That is why, as a reliable assistant, the founders of GPM Carbon chose the Ethereum network Protocol, on the basis of which they developed their internal token GPM Coin. In total, the total coin supply will be only 180 million coins, with an estimated value of $0.15 USD per 1 GPM Coin and up to $0.3 USD. At the same time, most of the coins (about 50%) will be allocated for the TGE, (30%) will be allocated for presales. The rest of the coins will be distributed among the team of founders, financial advisors of the project and its advertising managers. And only (7%) GPM Coin will be subject to freeze for reserve.

# Conclusion Summing up my article I would like to note the incredible contribution of the GPM Carbon project in the field of activated carbon production. At the same time, it should be noted his high-tech approach to the implementation of ideas and other related technologies, thanks to which developers will be able not only to significantly reduce production costs, but also to protect our environment from emitted toxins. Which, we recall, are not uncommon for all traditional centers for the extraction and production of activated carbon around the world. Moreover, the project itself is so interesting and multifaceted that in my short review it is simply impossible to tell you about all its aspects and advantages at once. Therefore, I invite you to the next block of the article, which contains absolutely all the official social resources of the GPM Carbon project. _**This, I'm going to finish my story, I was glad to be useful. See you again and good luck!**_

IoT which is a phenomenon connecting things to provide key physical data and processing of data in the cloud presents opportunities for all. Despite its advancements, it is still constrained by certain problems. Many IoT systems are poorly designed and implemented using diverse protocols and technologies that create complex configurations. IoT is also prone to security challenges such as hacking of baby monitors, drug infusion pumps, cameras, rifles, etc. Due to its centralized nature, connecting many devices than it can carry, will pose a serious issue. HAWK, a decentralized and trailblazing platform, helps to improve IoT use and development by preparing algorithms on how to effectively manage and store IoT. This will further more enhance speed light transfer of data, transparency and security. The network also helps to eliminate the challenges of piracy and reliability using blockchain technology to bring various smart devices together. The HAWK network presents us with an application called the Black Hawk Knight. A feature of cities that are densely congested is traffic. When all cars, even electric cars are stuck in traffic, and you’re just five minutes away from your destination, what do you do? That’s where BHK comes in. The application provides the services of the electric scooters since they are mostly used for short distance travels. Users of the application pay a little token for the service and the project investors get to share the dividends. The project aims to distribute electric scooters across 50 countries. FEATURES OF THE HAWK PLATFORM • Blockchain technology • Intelligent terminal • Trusted network • Smart contracts. • Edge computing • Big data TOKEN DETAILS Hawk Network has a utility token known as HAWK token which is based on the Ethereum ERC20 blockchain technology.

Originally published on Publish0x: https://www.publish0x.com/cryptolohy101/problems-centralized-company-running-descentralized-crypto-p-xdkegy The more I study this subject the more I arrive at one specific realization. Bitcoin is the king of cryptoland, (among other things) because it is the most decentralized currency of all, maybe not in one specific measure, like mining farms, but as a whole, that is to say, that when you take into account the many factors that make a cryptocurrency project, Bitcoin is the one perceived as less dependent on any one particular factor to carry on. In this article, I would like to point out the fundamental problems that a Centralized Company could face when running or growing a decentralized crypto project. #1 The Whole Dynamic Is Tense When a centralized company is running or promoting a decentralized crypto project, it is not uncommon to find that sometimes the two are, in a way, fighting each other, and this is so because the whole setup is fundamentally contradictory, in my opinion in such cases there will always be an unresolved tension between the two. For instance, you have the case of Ethereum, with its Ethereum Foundation, in which Vitalik Buterin plays a role as a prominent crypto influencer, and thus, in 2017, when rumours of his death spread, caused the price of Ethereum to go down 20% which is a demonstration of how much dependent (and centralized) Ethereum is, at least as regards to the brand being heavily dependent on a 25-year-old. #2 A Company That Heavily Influences A Blockchain Is Betraying The Idea Of Going Decentralized In The First Place If you pre-mined your coin, ala xrp-labs, and that coin is in your power, you pretty much control the coin in significant ways. You can enhance certain desired behaviours via crypto prizes for developers, you can create the partnerships that you desire, you can set up giveaways that recompense the type of content you like, you can defend yourself against the government with the money you printed, and many other things, in this way, you might end up with a very profitable central company, but you most likely would not get a decentralized system that creates new waves of thought, that resolves issues that no one cares about (till they are resolved). You will pass on the opportunity to build a system or create developments that might get you delisted from some corrupt or coward exchanges and in summary all that creativity that rises from unrestricted decentralization, it's less likely to occur. #3 It Could Be Deemed A Security As Investopedia explains: "Put simply, the Howey Test asks whether the value of a transaction for one of its participants is dependent upon the other's work. Specifically, the Howey Test determines that a transaction represents an investment contract if "a person invests his money in a common enterprise and is led to expect profits solely from the efforts of the promoter or a third party," And that's another conundrum in itself. If your mere presence and activity could lead to serious lawsuits and regulation, why be "in charge" in the first place? #4 The Foundation/Company Is Seeing As The Last Arbitrator Of Problems Does your coin have some shady individuals promoting it? Then you are expected to take public sides on the whole fud-controversy. Is the communist party of china in favour of it? Is it against it? There you go, "solve" that issue. Did Trump bash your coin? Respond! Don't be a coward! A giveaway from your foundation resulted badly? People might/will sue you Does a shady company that has nothing to do with you is using your coin to scam other people? Fix it! Someone has stolen the funds of your futuristic DAO? Rework the entire blockchain! To be fair, many of these complaints that you will get are sensible, but that just goes to show you that the entire set up of a centralize company building a decentralized blockchain is at its core contradictory. #5 The Company Is Credited For Every Error Or Problem Is there a critical security bug lurking on your collaborative opensource project? Well, in that case, it is perceived as the fault of your Foundation/Company, even if you set up the system so as to receive code edits from anywhere in the world with a wifi connection. Is it your fault? well, in a sense, it is, like what would occur if you were to create a new country and your constitution was flawed, but does that mean that every single mistake could be attributable to you? Well, it depends (see? this thingy is really complicated) #6 The Community (And Not The Company) Is Credited With Everything That Goes Right Did your coin grow 3897% in a year? Yeap, the community did it (even if you put 1 billion in fiat from your billionaires pocket) Did your coin has some really interesting technological achievements? Even if only one developer has done 80% of the commits, you will hardly notice his name featured on an article. Somehow the implicit message is that communities as a whole wrote the code, or at least did the promotion necessary to bring attention to some features. Is that fair? well, it depends,... #7 The Founders Personal Enemies Become A Liability To The Blockchain Pretty self-explanatory. Another thing to take in consideration. #8 The Founders Country Can Become A Liability If the founder of a blockchain is from communist-dictatorial china, the antichristian nanny state sometimes might pull you by the hair from a dinner with Warren Buffet, or if you are a USA citizen and your stash of Bitcoin that you purchased in 2011 goes hyper-parabolic and you want to cash out into fiat, it becomes a taxable event, even if you live in Hong Kong, since as a USA citizen you are bound to pay taxes to the IRS on your worldwide income. #9 The Founders Native Language Can Become A Liability Since English is the lingua franca of the world, the founder and any prominent team members have to be able to fluently communicate his ideas on that language. But, what if it happens that he doesn't speak English? Or if it speaks it with a thick accent? Simply put, an additional barrier to make this whole thing work will occur. #10 The Founders Culture Can Become A Liability Imagine a crypto founder from North Korea. Nuff said. Problems from everywhere, both from people in favour and people against the hypothetical project. Well, to a certain extent, this will occur with other cultures as well, especially when competing cultures are thrown into the mix. France vs USA (Tezos vs DUN)?? Mexico vs USA??? China vs Japan??? #11 The Founders Personal Opinions Can Become A Liability This is kind of self-explanatory, but it is even truer when the founders' opinions fall into the "absolutely-wrong" category, like endorsing criminal behaviour. Here is one example: Vitalik Buterin — the co-founder of Ethereum, a digital currency and dapp (decentralized app) development platform — deleted tweets from his verified Twitter account Monday night that seemed to defend the idea of legalizing child pornography. In a series of tweets, Buterin argued that “doing heroin imposes risks on others,” while “simple possession of child porn does not,” and declared, “I don’t see legalizing *possession* of child porn as more radical than heroin.” Source #12 The Founders Personal Life Might Become A Liability This is very similar to the previous one. So let's just go over the next point. #13 The Founder IQ Becomes A Liability Some people say that Satoshi Nakamoto was/is a genius, others that his code is not really that well constructed, regardless, we do not have a live twitter account to prove or disprove any assumption, which in turns benefits the bitcoin crypto project more than it harms it. You couldn't say the same thing about Tron. #14 The Founders Personality/charisma/agreeableness Becomes A Liability I have just two words about this one: Craig Wright. Conclusion If you are really serious about your crypto project, and you are inclined towards humility, maybe the faceless, credit-less route will be your best option. Dunno, just think about it.

¿Por que sigue siendo rentable invertir en Bitcoin y Ethereum?

 Cache   

o26mmx.jpg

2018 no fue un buen año para Bitcoin y las Cripto en general. Para diciembre de 2017, la criptomoneda había alcanzado su punto máximo y valía alrededor de $ 19,000. A principios de 2018, todavía representaba más de 17,000 dólares estadounidenses, pero en diciembre solo valía alrededor de 3,200 dólares. ¿Se recuperará el tipo de cambio y, si no, en qué criptomoneda se debe invertir en 2019? Bitcoin y Ethereum siguen siendo una buena opción para invertir. El mercado alcista de las últimas semanas solo confirma esto. Pero antes de invertir, por favor, siempre haga su propia investigación y no solo suba al tren exagerado como todos en 2017. Piense en sus decisiones y obtenga un beneficio de ello.

For your hard work and dedication this past week you will be receiving a 50% bonus on your bounty reward! Thank you to all who submitted bounties!! Keep ‘em rollin’ in and next week it may be YOU who gets the bonus!!! Meme of the Week:

Thank You to @lordblackpuma for the submission!!! This Week in Mass Adoption Mass adoption is the biggest goal the Blockchain community can achieve. Every week there are more examples that it is near, this past week being no exception. There was great news from the Internet of People ($IOP), more big news out of China, land registries, blockchain phones, seafood becomes see food, and now you can stay and pay with more crypto through Travala! Details after these three dots… Internet of People ($IOP) has announced on their Twitter page that their first real use-case has been achieved. IoP has signed a contract with Mexican University, Universidad Autónoma de Nayarit (UAN) for a digital identity solution. UAN has 30,000 students that will use the DID system powered by the IoP Blockchain. The program begins in 2020. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) has been reported to have been studying a national digital currency, DCEP or Digital Currency Electronic Payment, for the past “five or six years”. This is according to Huang Qifan, the executive VP of the China International Economic Exchange Center. This will in all likelihood, spur on a mad rush of other nations creating their own national digital currencies. Only time will tell if this spells the beginning of mass adoption or the end of our freedom from The Suits’ interference! The Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) is working on a two-year project in Peru, Bolivia, and Paraguay to put land registries on the Blockchain. As reported by CoinDesk, the IADB has teamed up Bolivian IT company Jalasoft and ChromaWay, a startup out of Stockholm, Sweden focusing solutions for financial institutions and governments. Land registries and payments on the Blockchain would be a certain step in the right direction for use-case arguments! Samsung has announced they will be integrating Tron into the SDK of the Samsung Blockchain Keystore which, as stated on the Samsung developers website, “puts consumers in control of their data by providing a platform to consolidate and easily manage private information and digital keys with vault-like security”. Blockchain tech is growing at a fast pace and the next generations of Blockchain-enabled smartphones will be key in the mass adoption charge. Fortune has reported the SEC will allow three major brokerages to settle stock trades using Blockchain tech. Credit Suisse, Société Générale, and another brokerage will utilize technology from the tech startup company Paxos based out of New York. This will dramatically reduce the time needed to settle these stock trades by a significant amount. Blockchain tech is even helping out its little brother, the Stock Market. This already has huge implications. Another seafood company has announced they will be using Blockchain tech to track and trace their products. BusinessWire has said Mastercard is teaming up with Envisible to bring food traceability to the Blockchain. Envisible’s Wholechain tracing system will utilize Mastercard’s Provenance Solution which is also used to fight the counterfeiting of luxury goods. Topco Associates LTD, a member-owned food consortium which includes Food City, will be the first to pilot the program to trace it’s seafood supplies. Hotel booking website Travala announced it will now accept Cardano ($ADA) and Stellar ($XLM) for hotel bookings. These payment options join other Cryptocurrencies $BTC, $ETH, $BNB, $BCH, $XRP, $LTC, $TUSD, $TRON, $NANO, $WAVES, $XZC, and their native $AVA token. It seems that more options for payments are showing up every week!!! Hey, Did Ya Hear That… …patch 1.1 is out for the awesome Flowerpatch DApp? The patch has MANY new upgrades and includes two new particles for the strain editor!!! Annnnndddd…. …winners were announced for the Flowerpatch Halloween contest? Join their Discord already! …the Bitcoin Whitepaper turned 11 this week? Happy birthday $BTC 😉 …traders on KuCoin will soon have access to margin trading? That’s marginally exciting… …Binance is going to open offices in Beijing? Cue the explosion emoji. …Huobi will freeze all American accounts by the middle of November?

China gives digital currencies a reprieve

 Cache   

HONG KONG — Blockchain is back in Beijing’s good graces.

Chinese officials have quietly removed the business of making Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies from a list of hundreds of industries that Beijing plans to outlaw. In April, the practice appeared on a list of industries that would be denied benefits and subsidies from local governments, leading to worries in China that a popular and lucrative business would dry up.

But making digital currency — a practice known as mining — was not on a final list released Wednesday. It was not clear why the National Development and Reform Commission, China’s top economic planning agency, removed cryptocurrency mining from the list, and officials there could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

But the change comes amid what appears to be a dramatic shift in how China regards the unproven world of digital currencies. Even President Xi Jinping appears to have warmed to the technology, although Beijing may accept cryptocurrencies only in ways that it can tightly control.

Last month, Xi endorsed studies in blockchain, the underlying technology that allows a cryptocurrency like bitcoin be tracked across a wide network of computers. Electronic payments are typically tracked by a centralized system like those run by PayPal or similar companies, giving those firms great control over the digital flow of money around the world.

According to state media, Xi told top Communist Party leaders that the technology was at the heart of China’s innovation and “key to increasing China’s influence and rule-making power in the global arena.”

Cryptocurrency makers and watchers said the comments were most likely meant to pave the way for China to create its own digital currency, both to tighten controls and to make China’s...

11/07 ANDY HOFFMAN (CryptoGoldCentral.com): MWC To Take The Crypto Community, And MimbleWimble Space, By Storm - When MainNet Launches, FOUR DAYS From Now!

 Cache   
For the MWC development team, activity has never been more intense, or focused – as the long-awaited MainNet launch approaches, with the Genesis block scheduled for Monday at 9:00 AM UTC. Which, when it arrives, will mark the end of the FIRST STAGE of development – of a coin that will become extremely active and well-known, amidst one of the most active crypto sectors…MimbleWimble. MW is unquestionably, the most revolutionary technology since blockchain itself – which is why “MimbleWimbleTrinity” coins MWC, Grin, and Beam are likely to receive a disproportionate amount of investor attention in 2020, and beyond. Initially, Lead Dev Chris Gilliard’s vision was to simply create an investable MimbleWimble coin – as opposed to Grin and Beam, whose supplies rise exponentially (and in Grin’s case, infinitely); and incentivize the Bitcoin community to support it, by distributing it via a free BTC airdrop and paying a regular, in-kind dividend. However, in the process of building MWC, it has actually become a, if not THE, leading platform for MimbleWimble development – as evidenced by the revolutionary GUI wallet the team will shortly introduce, and the sector’s first “cold storage” system. Not to mention, the decentralized marketplace MWC’s engineering team is actively developing, featuring futuristic trading methods like atomic swaps. Whilst all this frenzied, productive development has occurred, the MimbleWimble space has drawn a significant amount of attention – with many top Bitcoin developers joining its ranks. To that end, between MWC, Grin, and Beam, MimbleWimble protocol has exponentially advanced in less than a year’s time – as not so silently, the crypto community has started to acknowledge a “privacy debate” is inevitable; which, when it occurs, will favor MimbleWimble, because it is more private, fungible, and scalable than current blockchain (and privacy) protocols. This, as the Bitcoin bear market appears to have ended – with hash rate hovering around record highs, amidst a global monetary system in shambles; as the May 2020 halving looms just six months hence. In other words, the perfect environment to launch a coin with the potential to become a household name – of which, 30% of its lifetime supply of 20 million coins is being handed to BTC holders, who will receive another 10% in “MWC HODL” dividends for simply holding on to it. Yesterday, Chris published a new update for prospective miners (like all publications, archived at www.mwc.mw) – and sometime this weekend, will post another comprehensive update of where the project stands ahead of Monday’s MainNet launch. Remember, airdrop claims are not scheduled until December 11th - or sooner, if MainNet launch goes smoothly; at which point, it is our goal to be listed on one or more exchanges - though we can’t promise anything, given the amount of uncontrollable variables in the negotiation and integration processes. Irrespective, airdrop registrees should embrace the “calm before the storm” – as just FOUR DAYS hence, one of the most impactful; and possibly, popular; coins, MWC (i.e, “MimbleWimbleCoin”); will be launched! The MWC airdrop registration ended July 19th, with MainNet launch scheduled for November 11th, 2019, and claims on December 11th, 2019. A total of 148,474 Bitcoin registered – roughly 1% of the entire BTC float - yielding an MWC/BTC ratio of roughly 40.41. For more information, please check out the MWC website, Discord room, Twitter feed, and Telegram Forum. https://www.mwc.mw/ https://discordapp.com/invite/eUNwqf3 https://twitter.com/M_W_Coin https://www.mwc.mw/mimblewimble-coin-whitepaper
          

11/07 ANDY HOFFMAN (CryptoGoldCentral.com): Bitcoin Rhodium – BRODL And Wait, Time Is On Our Side

 Cache   
The major Bitcoin bear market that followed what was clearly, in hindsight, a bubble, ended in December 2018 at $3,000 – and responded to nearly more than a year of maximum investor stress with an “uber bubble”…again, in hindsight. In other words, Bitcoin rose too far, too fast this Spring – at a time when Bitcoin dominance stubbornly held at 50%, despite more coins than ever proving to be useless. Thus, a new bear market commenced in June 2019; this time, battering altcoins disproportionately, and rightly so - that very likely, bottomed for Bitcoin at the MUCH higher level of $7,300, following October 23rd’s high volume plunge, and October 25th’s historic, high volume surge. However, most altcoins remain – rightfully so – extremely weak, despite the fact Bitcoin dominance has fallen from its peak of 71%, mired in the 67% range for the past two months. As I have noted many times, a “baby with the bath water” scenario has evolved – affecting even the handful of coins with viable, defensible use cases, like Bitcoin Rhodium. That said, the beauty of crypto is that once a blockchain is built; and mining and investor communities developed’; with “mainstreaming” boxes checked - like listing on major exchanges, hardware and mobile wallet support, and CMC ranking; a coin is for all intents, “here to stay” indefinitely. So, HODLers can be patient – particularly, those of quality coins – as they wait to be rewarded…by long-term liquidity growth; or perhaps, the next crypto bubble. In Bitcoin Rhodium’s case, all such boxes have been checked – with several new, value-added initiatives deep in progress by its expanding development team. The Strong Hands dividend program has for now been doubled (perhaps, permanently so); and last week, it was announced that privacy features and the Free Market Once decentralized marketplace will be launched by mid-2020. To that end, the XRC mining community has never been more diversified – with a surprisingly low drop-off in hash rate, despite significantly lower prices since the June peak. In other words, XRC is here to stay – so, “BRODLers” can watch, wait, and collect dividends that currently are yielding around 12%. Plus, for those seeking to add, buying below .001 is enabling significant positions to be built in an extremely scarce coin for extremely small amounts of BTC – or, due to Bitcoin Rhodium’s partnership with Changelly, fiat dollars or other altcoins. Ultimately, the Bitcoin bull market will return to FOMO conditions – perhaps, with the halving just six months away, in late 2017 style; and when it does, QUALITY altcoins will return to vogue, like Bitcoin Rhodium. And since time is on the side of long-term holders, XRC’s own halving will eventually arrive – in late 2022, when the current block reward halves from an already scant 2.5/block to just 1.25. So, for those seeking a QUALITY, NICHE, PRIVATE, DIVIDEND-PAYING, SCARCE store-of-value coin without peer in the entire altcoin space, never will you have a better opportunity to build positions so cheaply – in terms of the amount, or dollar value of BTC or other coins. BRODL and wait, as time – and fundamentals - are on your side! Bitcoin Rhodium currently trades on HitBTC, Changelly, p2pb2b.io, WhiteBit, Trade Satoshi, Fat BTC, Sistemkoin and Bisq. If you have questions about anything XRC-related, including OTC trading, please email me at ahoffman@cryptogoldcentral.com, or DM/PM me on Twitter or Discord.
          

The Industry 4.0 Blueprint Is Being Rewritten by Startups

 Cache   
(Image source:  xresch from Pixabay)

The manufacturing industry is no stranger to misconceptions and buzzwords. Collaborative automation, Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, blockchain – the real reason we allow ourselves to spin in circles on these topics is because we’re inherently hopeful and practical people: We want to build better and believe there is a path to doing so if we could only find the way.

As part of my series to uncover what leaders in the manufacturing space are actually doing to build better, I sat down with Juan L. Aparicio Ojea, head of the research group for advanced manufacturing automation at Siemens. Aparicio Ojea’s role grants him unique insight into the latest research across universities, startups, and government agencies. Access to so many different types of technologies that are all working to provide value in one way or another has enabled him to create a simple blueprint for the key requirements of an Industry 4.0 system.

Aparicio Ojea acknowledges that we’re far from seeing completed Industry 4.0 systems in practice. However, while it seems like startups are leading the charge, there are steps every manufacturing leader can and should be taking today.

1.) Interoperability: One Solution from Many Parts

Much of the challenge of bringing new technologies to the factory floor is in the interfaces between them. Aparicio Ojea asserted, “Being able to interoperate machines from different vendors is key.” These connections will allow for the flow of previously underutilized data, enabling faster integration and time to value.

There are two schools of thought on this issue. Some, like Aparicio Ojea, believe that industry standardizations laid out by industrial consortiums, which includes frameworks for OPC UA and DDS, will be key. Others, like Andrew Scheuermann, CEO of Arch Systems, a data sensing startup, believe that the industry cannot wait for the long cycle of old equipment to be replaced.

New technologies like collaborative robots already have to work together with legacy systems. So Arch Systems, which counts top tier electronics manufacturer’s among its customers, has built out an extensive library of software and hardware retrofit integrations where manufacturers can expedite a path towards interoperability with what is on their floors today, while leveraging modern standards for their new equipment.

2.) Modularity: One Piece That Can Fit in Many Places

The second requirement is modularity, or as Aparicio Ojea clarifies, “not having a monolithic approach to manufacturing.” An easy-to-see example of modularity on an electronics factory floor is the surface mount assembly (SMA) line. Instead of one huge machine that can make only one kind of PCB, there are modular machines for each step in the process: solder paste deposition, pick and place machines, reflow ovens, and inspection.

But the SMA process has been around for decades, so what does it mean in the modern context? It means the time for custom-built, single-purpose machines is coming to an end, to be replaced by generalized technologies that can be applied to a much wider variety of products and problems.

Universal Robots, which was acquired by Teradyne in 2015, is tackling this by creating easy-to-program robot arms that can be reprogrammed to different functionalities when the program is over, enabling the technology to be viable for products with short life cycles (like consumer electronics).

3.) Digital Twin: Model What Matters

Aparicio Ojea believes the third element of the blueprint is the creation and use of a digital twin, or simulation, of factory processes. Here’s the point: If you want better outputs from your process (such as higher yields or higher throughput), as engineers we would measure the inputs (such as individual machine parameters) and to try to use statistics to figure out which variables matter. If you can find a mathematical correlation between the inputs and the outputs, you may be able to “turn the knobs” on the input parameters to get the outputs you need. A digital twin is the concept of doing that at a much larger scale, where the goal is to replicate every single process for a holistic model of the factory.

Digital twin technology allows design engineers to simulate the full design and manufacturing process. (Image source: Siemens PLM).

While it’s possible there are successful implementations of true digital twins out in the wilds of the manufacturing world, in general, this is viewed as an aspirational concept. As Aparicio Ojea said, “It is not a greenfield, it is a brownfield” – meaning that most factories already exist and are filled with both legacy equipment and manual processes that are difficult to digitalize.

While digital twins might be obtainable for highly automated bottling plants, it feels like fantasy for electronics assembly, which still has hundreds of human hands on the line. In those cases, leaders should focus on wrapping their arms around the data they can get at the highest possible resolution, if not from the process, then from the products themselves. Engineers can use this data to create these correlations the old fashioned way – with experiments, spreadsheets, and statistics.

4.) Flexibility: Pieces That Can Adapt

Arguably the most exciting element of the blueprint is flexibility. This element is all about reducing waste – not scrap waste, but equipment waste. Single-purpose machines are not easily repurposed, and yet are how short life cycle production lines have been able to automate to date.

How do we create more flexibility in the production process and the machines we use? AI, computer vision, and robotics can be combined to enable machines that are both more adaptable to variation, and more adaptable from product to product. A quick example is in the quality control process, where camera systems can program themselves to find anomalies more broadly during an inspection – allowing greater inspection coverage than humans or traditional quality control.

Where to Start?

How does one adopt Industry 4.0 technologies and embody these smart manufacturing principles? Aparicio Ojea recommends investing in two key areas: digitalization and strategic partnerships. Without digitalization there will be no data foundation, a requirement for a wide array of initiatives. Simply decreasing paper processes represents a first step that many can take. When it comes time to adopt innovative technologies, Aparicio Ojea recommends, “viewing vendors as strategic partners and having a co-creation mentality. Partnering with a startup, automation vendor, or university and working together to solve a problem that has a real KPI and a clear goal merits investment now.”

Aparicio Ojea specializes in these types of strategic partnerships for Siemens Corporate Technology. He views partnerships as opportunities for cutting edge technology to solve larger problems that have concrete ROI for big businesses. For instance, Siemens Corporate Technology has partnered with Sewbo in an ARM-funded project. Sewbo is a startup tackling automated garment production by incorporating a solution that stiffens fabrics. By reframing the problem of movement and variation, Sewbo (in conjunction with Siemens, UC Berkeley, and Bluewater Defense) has the opportunity to overhaul the status quo manual practices of the entire garment industry.

With so much expensive groundwork, is Industry 4.0 worth all of the buzz? Aparicio Ojea views it as an “evolution, rather than a revolution.” New technologies absolutely merit investment, but he advises that leaders to stick to technologies that make their processes better today and lay the foundation for the future.

Those new technologies may very well come from startups, which are reframing Industry 4.0 roadblocks and applying novel solutions. In order to stay competitive in this ever changing international landscape, it will be these technology investments today that differentiate the winners and losers tomorrow.

National: I study blockchain. It’s not ready to use in our elections | Nir Kshetri/Fast Company

 Cache   
A developing technology called blockchain has gotten attention from election officials, startups, and even Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang as a potential way to boost voter turnout and public trust in election results. I study blockchain technology and its potential use in fighting fraud, strengthening cybersecurity, and securing voting. I see promising signs that blockchain-based voting could make it more convenient for people to vote, thereby boosting voter turnout. And blockchain systems can be effective at strengthening the security of devices, networks, and critical systems such as electricity grids, as well as protecting personal privacy. The few small-scale tests run so far have identified problems and vulnerabilities in the digital systems and government administrative procedures that must be resolved before blockchain-based voting can be considered safe and trustworthy. Therefore I don’t see clear evidence that it can prevent, or even detect, election fraud.

CCE 2019 - 3M, Shell, Halliburton and Unibap weigh in on their AI results to date Jon Reed Wed, 11/06/2019 - 10:24
Summary:
It's hardly unique to hear about AI and IoT from the enterprise stage. But it's rare to hear customers speak to results and live lessons. At Constellation Connection Enterprise '19, a real world AI/IoT panel was a highlight - here's my review.

CCE 19 AI panel
CCE 2019 customer AI and IoT panel

Despite my incessant buzzword bashing, I'll concede this much: it's important to grapple with next-gen tech via experts who actually know what they are talking about.

We got an earful on day one of the Constellation Research Connected Enterprise 2019 event. Example: most CXOs are not falling over themselves to launch quantum computing projects in 2019, but they do need to be aware of possible threats to RSA encryption: 

Still, next-gen tech needs to be held to the fire of project results. Blockchain is a case in point. My upcoming podcast with blockchain panel moderator (and critic) Steve Wilson of Constellation will get into that in a big way. That's precisely why a day one CCE '19 highlight was "The Road to Real World AI and IoT Results." Moderated by Constellation's "Data to Decisions" lead Doug Henschen, the panelists shared AI lessons, as they bring tech to bear on logistics problems.

3M on AI - how does a 100+ year manufacturing company stay relevant?

Panelist Jennifer Austin, Manufacturing & Supply Chain Analytics Solutions Implementation Leader at 3M, told attendees why 3M is pursuing several AI-related initiatives. Start with the disruptions in the manufacturing sector:

We're looking at how, as a hundred-year-old plus manufacturing company: how do we stay relevant? How do we keep our products [in line] with consumer changes?

Joking about an earlier panel debate, Austin quipped:

I was also glad to hear that manufacturing is not dead.

As for those AI initiatives, one is a global ERP data standardization project:

As some of the speakers spoke of this morning, we struggle with our data, and we have a lot of self-sufficient organizations across the world. And so we don't have a standard way to represent our data. So we've been on a long journey to do that through our global ERP.

The next AI project? Smart products, such as 3M's smart air filter. The third? Manufacturing and supply chain pursuits, including an Industry 4.0 push:

The third [AI area] that I'm most focused on right now is in our manufacturing and supply organization. One aspect is Industry 4.0, which we're referring to as "digital factory."

We have over two hundred sites around the world, so we're trying to make sure that we have those all fully sensored, and that we're using the data that comes off of those sensors in a meaningful way -  to help us with things like capacity optimization, planning and cost reduction, and quality improvement for our customers.

Another aspect of the intelligent supply chain pursuit? Inventory optimization and other "customer value" projects.

The second portion of that manufacturing effort is connected to supply chain, so it's more transactional. That's where we're doing more of the machine learning activity right now. It's focused on things such as optimizing your inventory, by automatically determining what your saved stock should be. It's about minimizing and leaning out your value stream so you can deliver faster to our customers.

This is not a tiptoe into the AI kiddie pool:

We're starting to introduce some exciting new algorithms that are homegrown from our data scientists using, of course, open source models to scale that across the entire operation. So it's something we started out about 18 months ago. [At first], we didn't really think it was real, but it is very much real  - and driving results for our business.

Unibap AB - pursuing Industry 5.0 on earth, and in space

Next up? Frederick Bruhn from Unibap AB. Unibap is what you'd call a forward-thinking outfit. In a nutshell, they commercialize so-called "intelligent automation" - both on earth and in space. They've adopted the phrase Industry 5.0 to emphasize the shift from connected manufacturing (Industry 4.) to intelligent automation.

AI-in-space sounds like a science fiction popcorn movie special. But as Bruhn told us, it's a reality today, and not as different from "on earth" as we might assume:

For us, automation is both in the factories of tomorrow, and in space. Because if you have a mining operation on the ground, or if you have a mining operation on the moon for instance, for us it's the same. So we actually build the server hardware for space, and on the ground, and we do have software to go with that.

One of the cases for Unibap: replacing humans in real-time production lines for painting and coating, assembly, welding, and drilling. No, there aren't any mining operations on the moon yet, but Bruhn says that will happen in about fifteen years. In the meantime, Unibap is supplying computers to customers like NASA, "for intelligent data processing in space."

Royal Dutch Shell on AI - serving customers better is the goal

Deval Pandya of Royal Dutch Shell told us that Shell already has predictive maintenance models in operation, "giving us insights which you can act on to make business decisions and operational decisions, that is generating immense value for us."

The renewable energy space is another AI playing field for Royal Dutch Shell, including solar batteries, and a project to optimize when to charge or discharge batteries. Many of these "AI" and/or IoT projects, despite their focus on automation and "smart" machines, ultimately come back to serving customers better. Pandya:

We've been driving this culture of customer-centricity, and Shell is one of the largest in energy retail. There is a lot of information, and we're just starting to extract value out of it.

Getting AI projects right - talent and culture over tech

On diginomica, we've criticized digital transformation efforts that lack buy-in and total organizational commitment. Yet there is a need for small wins. In that context, how do you get AI projects right? Austin told Henschen: no matter how sexy the tech is portrayed, it's just a tool. 

I think that we have less of an AI strategy, than a commitment to delivering for our customers and our shareholders. So it's all about growth and innovation. AI/machine learning has become a tool that we're now more comfortable with. It's becoming a primary driver for helping us deliver on what our agenda is.

Pandya hit a similar note. Royal Dutch Shell has combined their digital technologies into a digital center of excellence:

A big portion is AI or machine learning, but a lot of it goes hand-in-hand. So in IoT, we are using a lot of this IoT data, and then applying AI to it.

I don't care how good your tech is, or how good your implementation partner is, you're still going to face adversity, your digital moment of truth. Henschen asked the panel: what is your biggest sticking point: talent, culture or technology platforms?

Halliburton's Dr. Satyam Priyadarshy says it's the talent. But for Halliburton, it's more of a training problem than a talent problem:

I call it talent transformation. Because we can't go and hire data scientists, right? A lot of us face the same challenge... We compete with Silicon Valley talent as well. The burning talent question for Halliburton is: can they transform the talent they have? The oil and gas industry has one of the most talented workforces scientifically, from geophysicists to geologists, right? So the question is: can they be turned and trained into data scientists? That has been very highly successful; we have been globally training people.

Two companies on the panel, Halliburton and Shell, use hackathons as a means to spark new hires, or upskill. As Priyadarshy shared, their hackathons are a crash course for developers on industry issues:

Our hackathons, or what we call boot camp workshops, are very contextualized and customized. Everybody can go and take a class on Coursera on AI, right? But how do you apply to oil and gas industry problems - that remains a challenge.

So Halliburton designs these boot camps to get geologists and drillers immersed in AI and IoT:

We have a big workforce of drillers; they are actually on the field. We are sitting in the office. So we have to understand their mindset. 

For Pandya, culture comes first, then talent, then tech: "culture sets the stage for everything else." But Pandya makes a critical point: if your workers don't feel free to fail, then your culture isn't ready for digital change.

This new technology is changing fundamentally the way we do business, the way we make decisions. And so it is a different mindset... The culture of failing fast and learning from failures is something which we have championed across Shell. It's okay to fail. And that's a huge, huge change in mindset, because when you are putting billions of dollars of investments [at stake], failure is usually not an option.

My take

Most of the panelists are investing in some type of AI/IoT COE (Center of Excellence). Give me a COE over a POC (Proof of Concept) anyway. A COE reflects a grittier commitment - and a recognition of the skills transitions needed. True, not all companies are able, or willing, to build data science teams, but it's instructive to see how approaches like COEs are holding up across projects.

A couple of panelists emphasized choosing the right implementation partner/advisory - that wisdom remains a constant. This panel was a welcome reminder that enterprise tech is at different maturity levels. It's our collective job to push beyond the marketing bombast and determine where we stand. Blockchain and quantum computing remain futuristic in an enterprise context, albeit with very different issues to conquer, whereas IoT, and now AI, have some live use cases to consider. Granted, none of the panelists offered up hard ROI numbers, but that's also a question that wasn't explored, and probably should have been.

Any discussion that comes back to data-powered business models must also return to issues of security, privacy, and governance. That wasn't a focus of this panel, but it was addressed in other Connected Enterprise sessions. My upcoming podcast with Steve Wilson on the persistent problem of identity will dig further.

Правительства и блокчейн: Возможности велики, но внедрение идёт неторопливо

 Cache   

Данная заметка Дика Вейсингера (Dick Weisinger – на фото) была опубликована 24 октября 2019 года на блоге компании Formtek.

Всеобщий интерес к технологии блокчейна охватил большинство отраслей. Правительства и государственные органы также проявили интерес к этой технологии.

Как сообщила консультационная фирма Gartner (см. https://www.computerweekly.com/opinion/Gartner-Eight-ways-blockchain-can-support-governments ), две трети государств мира заявили о своей заинтересованности во внедрении блокчейна. Однако государственные органы, несмотря на наличие заинтересованности, действуют не торопясь и обдумывают, как именно подойти ко внедрению данной технологии. Только два процента правительств используют блокчейн в настоящее время.

Ожидается, что этот темп несколько ускорится. В статье (см. https://www.computerweekly.com/opinion/Gartner-Eight-ways-blockchain-can-support-governments ) аналитика фирмы Gartner Дэвида Фарлонгера (David Furlonger, https://www.gartner.com/analyst/14043/David-Furlonger ) описан ряд вариантов использования блокчейна в государственном управлении, в том числе следующие:
  • Голосование – Существует большая заинтересованность в проведении выборов на основе применения технологии блокчейна, однако проблемы, связанные с аутентификацией избирателей, мошенничеством и запугиванием, сдерживают его использование;

  • Управление цифровыми активами -  блокчейн-технологии могут быть использованы для отслеживания прав собственности в таких областях, как здравоохранение, страхование, рыболовство и коммунальные услуги;

  • Управление документами - блокчейн может быть использован для управления документами. Американские штаты Вермонт (Vermont) и Делавэр (Delaware) уже начали использовать блокчейн для управления государственными документами.

  • Сложные данные - Блокчейн можно использовать для управления данными, относящимися к медицинской документации, документам на права интеллектуальной собственности и на недвижимость.
Дик Вейсингер (Dick Weisinger)

Мой комментарий: Проблема блокчейна в том, что, хотя в принципе эта технология может быть использована где угодно, пока что практически нет вариантов применения некриминального характера, где она могла бы явно превзойти решения на основе традиционных технологий. Реальные блокчейны работают, наверное, уже лет десять, если не больше, и за это время – если данная технология столь замечательна, как о ней говорят – она давно уже могла стать массовой.

Если блокчейн-решение, внедряемое взамен традиционного, принадлежит и подконтрольно государству, то ничего особенно инновационного здесь нет. С точки зрения внешних сторон, один «чёрный ящик» в этом случае заменяется на другой примерно той же эффективности, - причём, как правило, под предлогом инноваций «распиливается» приличная сумма.

Если же блокчейн-решение государству неподконтрольно, то появляется целый «букет» сложных проблем, в первую очередь связанных с определением того, кого штрафовать и сажать, если что-то пойдёт не так; а также с жизнеспособностью системы на длительных интервалах времени. Интерес к блокчейн-решениям для обеспечения доверия к государственным документам – верный признак того, что соответствующее государство находится в кризисе, выходить из которого обычно надо с помощью несколько иных мер :)

Международный союз электросвязи опубликовал руководство по внедрению решений на основе технологии блокчейна, часть 2

 Cache   

(Окончание, начало см. https://rusrim.blogspot.com/2019/11/1.html )

Новый мир без центральной власти?

Решения на основе технологий блокчейна и распределённых реестров могут поддерживать доверенный обмен в отсутствие центрального органа, исполняющего роль посредника. Инновации в этой области могут способствовать переходу на более распределенные модели установления доверия.

«Однако идея нового мира, в котором не нужны центральные банки и правительства, просто чересчур радикальна», - говорит Вей Кай. «Мы увидим компромисс между таким [идеальным] новым миром и традиционным законодательством и нормативным регулированием. Это будет скорее эволюция, чем революция».

Международный союз электросвязи является специализированным учреждением Организации Объединенных Наций по информационно-коммуникационным технологиям (ИКТ). Его членами являются 193 государства и около 900 ведущих компаний, университетов и международных и региональных организаций.

«Разнообразие состава членов МСЭ поможет нам найти правильный баланс между интересами различных заинтересованных сторон», - говорит Вей Кай.

«Международные стандарты МСЭ будут способствовать решению двойной задачи -  поддержки инноваций в сфере технологий распределенных реестров, уважая при этом   цели и задачи существующих институтов».

Сила стандартных терминов и определений

Фокус-группа объединила представителей широкого круга заинтересованных сторон, от государств и их регулирующих органов до транснациональных компаний, организаций гражданского общества, малых и средних предприятий, а также стартапов.

«Состоялся очень честный и открытый обмен мнениями», - отмечает Скайлар Гурвиц (Skylar Hurwitz,  на фото слева - Н.Х.), консультант в фирме Jelurida и основатель компании Demetrius Consulting – это два из многих малых и средних предприятий, которые участвовали в работе фокус-группы.

Гурвиц подчеркнул значение терминов и определений в области технологий распределенных реестров, согласованных фокус-группой.

«В DLT-проектах, как правило, используются термины, наиболее «дружественные» по отношению к соответствующим платформам», - отметил он.

«Данная фокус-группа стала первой нейтральной площадкой для сотрудничества по стандартизации терминов и определений. Маркетинговые соображения были отложены в сторону, открывая путь к созданию международных стандартов».

Мой комментарий: Что касается «первой нейтральной площадки», то, думаю, интерпретировать эти слова Гурвица надо так: «первая нейтральная площадка с моим участием» :) Фокус-группа, в частности, активно использовала наработки комитета TC307 ИСО, который идёт впереди в разработке терминологического стандарта.

В качестве примера Гурвиц приводит определение термина «смарт-контракты» (smart contracts).

«Оно расширяет наши возможности. Опираясь на согласованное определение, мы можем теперь перейти к следующему этапу сравнения различных типов смарт-контрактов и их конкурентных преимуществ».

Присоединяйтесь к сообществу МСЭ по стандартизации!

Фокус-группы МСЭ открыты для всех заинтересованных сторон. Эти группы ускоряют проводимые МСЭ исследования в областях, чьё стратегическое значение для членов МСЭ растёт.

Руководства, разработанные фокус-группой, были утверждены на прошедшей на прошлой неделе встрече Консультативной группы МСЭ по стандартизации в области электросвязи (Telecommunication Standardization Advisory Group, TSAG, https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/about/groups/Pages/tsag.aspx ).

Эти документы будут поддерживать усилия в области стандартизации рабочих групп МСЭ, включая группы Q22/16 «Технологии распределенных реестров и электронные услуги» (Distributed Ledger Technologies and e-Services, http://itu.int/en/ITU-T/studygroups/2017-2020/16/Pages/q22.aspx ). и Q14/17 «Вопросы безопасности технологий распределенных реестров» (Security aspects for Distributed Ledger Technologies, https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/studygroups/2017-2020/17/Pages/q14.aspx ).

Деятельности МСЭ по стандартизации в области технологий блокчейна и распределенных реестров будут способствовать усилия МСЭ по организации для малых и средних предприятий (МСП), а также для стартапов пилотного проекта с возможностью бесплатного участия (в работе по стандартизации – Н.Х.). За этим пилотным проектом последует введение новой категории членства в МСЭ для МСП, отличающаяся значительно сниженными членскими взносами. Дополнительную информацию о программе для МСП можно найти по адресу https://www.itu.int/en/join/smes/Pages/default.aspx

Международный союз электросвязи опубликовал руководство по внедрению решений на основе технологии блокчейна, часть 1

 Cache   

Данная заметка была опубликована в новостном разделе сайта Международного союза электросвязи 1 октября 2019 года.

«Тем, кто потенциально может заняться внедрением технологии блокчейна, мы даём четкое представление об этой новой технологии, а также о том, как её лучше всего применять», - говорит представитель Китайской академии информационных и коммуникационных технологий (China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, CAICT, http://www.caict.ac.cn/english/ ; китайское название - 中国信息通信研究院) Вей Кай (Wei Kai, на фото слева – Н.Х.), являющийся председателем фокус-группы FG DLT Международного союза электросвязи (МСЭ - International Telecommunications Union, ITU) по теме «Применение технологии распределенных реестров» (Application of Distributed Ledger Technology, https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/focusgroups/dlt/Pages/default.aspx ).

Варианты использования технологий блокчейна и распределенных реестров (distributed ledger technology, DLT) появляются сейчас в областях телекоммуникаций, финансов, энергетики, цепочек поставок и государственного управления, - это лишь некоторые из многочисленных секторов, заинтересованных в приложениях на основе данных технологий.

Мой комментарий: Справедливости ради следует отметить, что большинство этих примеров использования представляют собой или небольшие пилотные проекты, или, чаще, некие теоретические конструкции. Всё это, к сожалению, очень напоминает шумиху по поводу «экспертных систем» в конце 1980-х – начале 1990-х годов, когда реально работавших решений было около десятка, а вот «кейсов» - хоть отбавляй …

«Наша цель заключалась в том, чтобы помочь отрасли и государственным органам с большей уверенностью браться за внедрение DLT-технологии», - отмечает Вей Кай.

Фокус-группа МСЭ разработала инструментарий, который может быть использован всеми разработчиками инновационных решений на основе распределённых реестров, и теми, кто на практике применяет такие решения, признавая при этом, что приложения DLT-технологий могут принимать самые разные формы.

Термины и определения для технологий блокчейна и распределенных реестров обеспечат основу для большей согласованности при разработке и применении DLT-решений.

Набор «критериев оценки» будет способствовать усилиям по выявлению сильных и слабых сторон DLT-платформ при различных вариантах применения.

Высокоуровневая эталонная архитектура решений на основе распределенных реестров описывает ключевые элементы DLT-платформ, способствуя более ясному пониманию того, как следует описывать и оценивать такие платформы.

Мой комментарий: В части терминологии и эталонной архитектуры МСЭ дублирует работу, которую делает Международная организация по стандартизации (ИСО). Хотя на неформальном уровне данные проекты в определённой степени взаимодействуют друг с другом, стараясь избегать явных противоречий, в любом случае такое дублирование вряд ли пойдёт отрасли на пользу, не способствуя авторитетность разработок что МСЭ, что ИСО.

Фокус-группа задокументировала и проанализировала около 60 вариантов использования технологии распределённых реестров, обращая внимание, в том числе, на актуальность данной технологии в плане реализации целей Организации Объединенных Наций (ООН) в области устойчивого развития (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, см.   https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/ , на русском языке: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/ru/ ).

Мой комментарий: Коллекционированию вариантов применения как способу без какой-либо полезной отдачи «убить» массу сил и времени специалистов, с моей точки зрения, нет сейчас равных :) Даже бесконечные терминологические дискуссии, и те иногда приводят хоть к каким-то результатам … Межу тем это коллекционирование изначально бессмысленно, поскольку 1) любой традиционный реестр в любой сфере деятельности, при желании, может быть заменён на распределённый; и 2) тот же Биткойн уже давно доказал, что технологии блокчейна и распределённых реестров работоспособны, в том числе в таком непривычном варианте, когда у решения нет известного «хозяина». Особенно забавно то, что эти весьма пёстрые коллекции «кейсов» (среди которых может не оказаться Биткойна и Эфириума) планируется продавать – документы МСЭ и ИСО не бесплатные!

Группа также предложила концептуальные рамки для рассмотрения последствий внедрения распределенных реестров с точки зрения нормативно-правового регулирования. Группа также прогнозирует развитие технологии в будущем с учетом влияния нормативного регулирования.

Эти руководства свободно доступны по адресу https://www.itu.int/en/ITU-T/focusgroups/dlt/Pages/default.aspx

Какие варианты применения являются наиболее перспективными?

«Мы все ещё находимся на самой ранней стадии», - говорит Вей Кай. «За исключением криптовалют, мы пока не видим каких-либо неотразимо привлекательных приложений».

В документах фокус-группы анализируются варианты применения различной степени зрелости, от идей и концепций до подтверждающих работоспособность пилотных проектов и полномасштабных внедрений.

«Область технологий распределённых реестров настолько широка, что очень сложно сравнивать различные варианты применения», - отмечает заместитель председателя фокус-группы МСЭ Сюзана Мараньяо (Suzana Maranhão, на фото справа – Н.Х.), представляющая Бразильский банк развития.

«Цепочки поставок (supply chain), однако, представляются той областью, где приложения DLT-технологий могут в ближайшем будущем дать значительную отдачу. Фокус-группа получила много вариантов применения в этой сфере».

Если благодаря использованию DLT-технологии все участники цепочек поставок смогут пользоваться единым представлением соответствующих данных, то удастся повысить эффективность управления цепочками поставок и значительно упростить разрешение споров.

Фиксация цепочек событий в защищенном от внесения несанкционированных изменений распределённом реестре позволяет улучшить отслеживаемость, повысить прозрачность происхождения продуктов и сократить время и затраты, необходимые для проверки соответствия стандартам качества.

И в своей простейшей форме, добавляет Мараньяо, эти DLT-приложения не требуют какой-либо передачи активов, в результате чего нормативно-правовые последствия их использования существенно меньше.

«Варианты применения, связанные с обменом активами, влекут за собой более сложные последствия, и в результате их зрелость повышается медленнее», - подчёркивает Мараньяо.

Technical analysis of ETH/USD for 07/11/2019

 Cache   

Crypto Industry News:

Chinese President Xi Jinping has credited Blockchain and cryptocurrencies, calling on the country to accelerate the adoption of Blockchain, said Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz. The investor delivered his speech at the Reuters Global Investment Outlook 2020 Summit in New York.

Michael Novogratz, founder of the cryptocurrency Galaxy Digital bank and avid Bitcoin supporter, believes that the announcement of the Chinese president at the end of October triggered the latest rise in the price of the largest cryptocurrency. By encouraging China to adopt Blockchain technology out of concern for the country, Xi "just made crypto and Blockchain" credible, "Novogratz said.

On October 24, Xi expressed his positive position on Blockchain technology at the Political Committee session on Blockchain technology trends. The president emphasized that the adoption of integrated Blockchain technologies is the key to promoting technological innovation and industry transformation.

Following the Chinese state publication, Beijing's positive position on Blockchain technology should not be interpreted as support for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Despite the agency's warning of "speculation," China took another step towards cryptocurrency on November 6, confirming that Bitcoin mining will not be an unwanted industry in the country.

The mood swift in China occurred a few months after the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission revealed its plan to eliminate cryptocurrency mining in that country.

While cryptocurrency trading in China is still formally banned, the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress in China passed a new "cryptographic law" on October 26, which will come into force on January 1, 2020. The new rules set new standards for the use of cryptography and password management in-country and by default refer to cryptocurrency regulations.

Technical Overview:

The ETH/USD pair has tried to test the technical resistance zone located between the levels of $193.52 - $196.61 but failed after the Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern was made. The market continues a corrective cycle with a low made at the level of $172.91, but as long as ETH/USD trades above the level of $163.11 there is still a chance for another impulsive wave up. The nearest technical resistance is seen at the level of $193.52 and the nearest technical support is seen at the level of $179.94. The key technical support is located at the level of $172.91.

Weekly Pivot Points:

WR3 - $203.38

WR2 - $197.53

WR1 - $186.87

Weekly Pivot - $181.92

WS1 - $171.26

WS2 - $165.71

WS3 - $155.07

Trading recommendations:

The best strategy in the current market conditions is to trade with the larger timeframe trend, which is still up. All the shorter timeframe moves are still being treated as a counter-trend correction inside of the uptrend. When the wave 2 corrective cycles are completed, the market might will ready for another impulsive wave up of a higher degree and uptrend continuation.

Förderprogramm JumpStart schafft für Jungunternehmen den passenden Rahmen

 Cache   

Das Bundesministerium für Digitalisierung und Wirtschaftsstandort (BMDW) hat gemeinsam mit der Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (aws) die dritte Ausschreibungsrunde des Programms JumpStart erfolgreich abgeschlossen. Aus 24 eingereichten Projekten hat eine unabhängige Expertenjury die besten Konzepte ausgewählt, die nun als Inkubatoren mit jeweils bis zu 150.000 Euro unterstützt werden. Diese sind: Female Founders, Lemmings und The Ventury aus Wien, Climate KIC aus Niederösterreich und I.E.C.T. aus Tirol. Schwerpunkt des Programms liegt dabei auf der Unterstützung und Weiterentwicklung heimischer Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren, die innovativen Start-ups nicht nur Büro-, Labor-, oder Produktionsflächen, sondern insbesondere maßgeschneiderte Beratungsleistungen zur Verfügung stellen.

„Unsere innovativen Start-ups brauchen die besten Rahmenbedingungen. Mit dem JumpStart-Programm leisten wir einen wichtigen Beitrag, um aus Ideen erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle zu machen. Besonders positiv ist, dass wir in dieser Runde mit der Unterstützung von Female Founders auch gezielt Frauen in Start-ups unterstützen können. Wir brauchen mehr Gründerinnen und dafür braucht es neben Mut und Eigeninitiative auch entsprechende Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt Wirtschaftsministerin Margarete Schramböck.

Projekte aus ganz Österreich

Im Rahmen der dritten Ausschreibungsrunde wurden 24 Anträge aus ganz Österreich eingereicht. Neben bekannten und in der Szene fest verankerten Akteuren konnten in dieser Runde auch viele junge Initiativen angesprochen werden. Die Bandbreite der Bewerber und der ausgewählten Projekte reichte dabei von „Stand-alone“- über Corporate-Inkubatoren und Technologiezentren bis hin zu akademischen Akzeleratoren und verteilt sich über alle Start-up-relevanten Branchen, wie Life Sciences, IT, Web/Mobile, Dienstleistungen und Hardware.

„Um ihre Ideen umzusetzen, brauchen Start-ups neben finanziellen Ressourcen eine Arbeitsumgebung, in der sie sich ganz auf ihre Projekte konzentrieren und gleichzeitig von der Vernetzung und vom lebendigen Erfahrungsaustausch mit anderen Start-ups profitieren können. Mit aws JumpStart unterstützen wir die besten Inkubatoren und schaffen damit die notwendigen Rahmenbedingungen“, sagt die aws Geschäftsführung, Edeltraud Stiftinger und Bernhard Sagmeister.

In einem ersten Schritt wurden in der Förderungsschiene nun geeignete Inkubatoren und Akzeleratoren ausgewählt und unterstützt. Damit wird für Unternehmungen ein produktiver und unbürokratischer Rahmen geschaffen, in dem sie sich entwickeln können. Zudem brauchen besonders innovative Start-ups auch selbst Finanzierung. In einem zweiten Modul des Förderungsprogramms werden daher vielversprechende Start-ups auch direkt unterstützt. Bis zu fünf der Unternehmen, die sich in einem JumpStart Inkubator/ Akzelerator befinden, werden dazu ausgewählt. Pro Start-up ist eine Förderung von 22.500 Euro vorgesehen.

Die Projekte im Überblick:

Climate KIC

Climate KIC ist Europas größtes öffentlich-privates Netzwerk für Klimaschutzinnovation, das sowohl in Österreich als auch in 31 weiteren europäischen Ländern tätig ist.

Female Founders

Der Female Founders Verein wurde 2016 von Lisa-Marie Fassl, Tanja Sternbauer und Nina Wöss gegründet, um eine Plattform zur stärkeren Vernetzung und Förderung von Frauen im Start-up Bereich zu schaffen. Mittlerweile hat sich die Female Founders Community auch international einen Namen gemacht, mit Mitgliedern aus mehr als 10 Nationen. Diese Community dient in weiterer Folge der Akquise von Unternehmen für das geplante Accelerator-Programm, das ausgewählte Projekte zu einer „investment-readiness“ und einem erfolgreichen Markteintritt führen soll.

I.E.C.T.

Die private Institution I.E.C.T. – Institute for Entrepreneurship Cambridge – Tirol hat mit Ihrem Co-Founder Dr. Hermann Hauser, dem Mitbegründer des Cambridge Phenomenon, ein Urgestein mit an Bord, das einen essentiellen Beitrag zum Aufbau einer aufstrebenden Entrepreneurship-Kultur beigetragen hat.

Lemmings

Lemmings ist ein Wiener Early-Stage Inkubator und Akzelerator mit einem Schwerpunkt auf Emerging Technology wie Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain und Virtual & Augmented Reality. Das Gründerteam Thomas Schranz und Allan Berger weist bereits große Erfahrung durch die Gründung Ihres Start-ups Blossom auf, dass ein Projektmanagement Service für Software-Teams bereitstellt. Lemmings hat in den letzten zwei Jahren über 200 Teilnehmer betreut und um die Talente noch besser zu fördern und anzuziehen, wird jetzt ein Programm namens "Project Magic" etabliert.

The Ventury

The Ventury wurde 2016 unter anderem von Christoph Aschberger, Christoph Bitzner und Jakob Reiter in Wien gegründet.

Bridging the Week by Gary DeWaal: October 21 to November 1, and November 4, 2019, (CFTC Settlement Undone; Aiding and Abetting Liability Potentially Broader; Spoofing = Wire Fraud)

 Cache   

Two weeks ago, a federal court of appeals sided with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ruling that a district court could not require the testimony of three commissioners and various staff to assess whether the agency committed civil contempt in connection with its handling of an enforcement settlement with two food giants. In response, the district court confirmed it would solely evaluate the existing record to determine whether to grant the defendants’ motion for a contempt finding against the Commission and sanctions; however, it also set aside the settlement consent order and instructed the parties to propose a trial date – although they could also propose new resolution terms. Last week, a law firm filed its own lawsuit against the CFTC for the agency’s non-provision of documents related to the settlement in response to a request under the Freedom of Information Act. Unrelatedly, the House Committee on Agriculture proposed to reauthorize the CFTC for another five years and to expand the reach of potential aiding and abetting liability to reckless acts in addition to purposeful acts. As a result, the following matters are covered in this week’s edition of Bridging the Week:

  • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request (includes Legal Weeds);
  • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion (includes My View);
  • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge (includes Policy and Politics); and more.

Article Version:  

Briefly:

  • District Court Judge Calls for Do Over in Settlement of CFTC Enforcement Action Against Food Giants After Court of Appeals Mostly Grants Commission’s Mandamus Request: On October 23, the federal court judge in Chicago presiding over the 2015 enforcement action by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission against Kraft Foods Group, Inc. and Mondelez Global, LLC set aside the settlement agreement among the parties confirmed in an August 14, 2019 consent order. The CFTC originally charged the defendants with manipulating and attempting to manipulate December 2011 wheat futures contracts and cash wheat.

The Hon. John Blakey revoked the settlement order following a decision by a federal court of appeals to grant, in part, relief requested by the CFTC in a mandamus petition precluding him from requiring the Chairman of the CFTC, two commissioners, and various employees of the Commission to provide testimony in a contempt proceeding against the CFTC and the individuals. Previously, the defendants requested that the CFTC and the individuals be held in contempt because they claimed the CFTC and the individuals had violated terms of a mutual gag agreement contained in the consent order when the Commission and two commissioners issued statements contemporaneously with publication of the order. The defendants also sought sanctions against the CFTC.

Under the agreement, defendants agreed to remit a fine of US $16 million and not to violate various provisions of law relating to manipulation, wash sales, and speculative limits. The consent order made clear, however, that nothing in the order reflected an agreement or determination that the defendants violated any provision of applicable law. (Click here for details regarding this dispute in the article “Contempt and Sanctions Hearing Against the CFTC Arising From Manipulation Complaint Settlement Delayed to October 2” in the September 2, 2019 edition of Between Bridges.)

The US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit held that only the CFTC could potentially be held in contempt for violating the gag order and not any individuals, and that the determination of whether the CFTC was in contempt should be made by Judge Blakey solely on the basis of the existing record without any consideration of collateral evidence, including the testimony of any CFTC commissioners or employees.

In response, Judge Blakey issued a docket entry noting that he would resolve defendants’ motion for contempt, sanctions and other relief relying solely on the existing record. He also set aside the consent order on the grounds that the “factual record” does not support a proposition that the parties agreed to settle their dispute with an understanding that the settlement terms were binding on the Commission but not on agents of the Commission, including commissioners and staff. Additionally, Judge Blakey requested that the CFTC and defendants renew their motions for summary judgment and propose a trial date during a hearing on November 20. Judge Blakey indicated that the parties may still try to settle this matter, however.

Separately, the New York-based law firm of Kobre & Kim sued the CFTC in a federal court in NY, claiming that the Commission failed to produce documents related to the CFTC-Kraft/Mondelez settlement that it requested under the Freedom of Information Act. The law firm claims that it requested the documents because the original settlement failed to contain any findings of fact or conclusions of law, and thus the CFTC has left “the public in the dark” regarding its current theory of manipulation. According to the law firm, “[i]n effect, the CFTC negotiated a private resolution that left the industry without any intelligible guidance and with a potential misimpression that the legal theories asserted against [Kraft/Mondelez] had a sound legal basis.” (Click here to access a copy of Kobre & Kim’s Complaint.)

Legal Weeds: In its petition for mandamus, the CFTC also requested that the civil contempt proceeding against it be ended. However, the Court of Appeals rejected this request, claiming that if a decision ultimately is rendered adverse to the CFTC, the Commission can appeal that outcome in the ordinary course. The Court of Appeals also declined to transfer the contempt proceeding to a different judge as asked by the CFTC, saying that Judge Blakey was in the “best position to decide as an initial matter” if a contempt determination was warranted.

Following the Court of Appeals’ decision, Judge Blakey indicated that not only would he be considering the CFTC’s possible violation of the consent order, but also possible violations of the court’s prior orders, “including this Court’s orders making the settlement conference discussions private in conformity with traditional trial court practice.”

Judge Blakey previously had suggested that the Commission as well as individual commissioners and staff might be subject to criminal contempt determinations. However he withdrew this threat on September 19. (Click here to access the relevant docket entry at 336.)

Judge Blakey’s pronouncement on the wide scope of his contempt determination coupled with Kobre & Kim’s FOIA lawsuit against the CFTC on Halloween serve to underscore how the Commission’s initial handling of its settlement with Kraft and Mondelez will continue to haunt the agency for some time.

  • House Ag Committee Proposes CFTC Reauthorization That Includes Aiding and Abetting Expansion: The House of Representatives' Agriculture Committee proposed a bill to reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission through fiscal year 2025 that includes a material expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability. Currently, under relevant law, any persons who willfully aids and abets a violation of law can be held liable for such violation as a principal (Click here to access 7 U.S.C. § 13c(a)). As proposed by the Agriculture Committee, any person who recklessly provides substantial assistance to such a violation could also be liable as a principal. 

Additionally, the proposed reauthorization bill would (1) amend core principles for contract markets and swap execution facilities to require the CFTC to adopt rules detailing trader data and other information such trading venues must be able to access from cash markets and other data sources related to contracts referencing digital commodities and (2) expand the reach of the CFTC’s enforcement authority outside the United States to circumstances where certain prohibited activities (e.g., fraud and manipulation) “have or would have a reasonably foreseeable substantial effect within the United States.” 

As proposed, the CFTC would also be required to adopt policies to safeguard proprietary information it receives whether through investigations or otherwise proportionate to the “level of sensibility of the information” and limit access to the information to “appropriate” Commission staff.

My View: In light of the CFTC’s relentless prosecution of Jitesh Thakkar for developing software used by Flash Crash Spoofer Navinder Sarao despite the dropping of parallel criminal charges by the Department of Justice, the proposed expansion of potential aiding and abetting liability for non-registrants is a significant red flag. Potentially holding programmers of futures trading, advisory or surveillance systems liable for the non-intentional development of software that might be used for illicit purposes could have a material chilling effect on software development for legitimate purposes and inhibit US leadership in creating new fintech innovations for the derivatives industry. (Click here for background regarding the CFTC’s pursuit of Mr. Thakkar in the article “Department of Justice Declines to Retry Alleged Programmer for Flash Crash Spoofer” in the April 28, 2019, edition of Bridging the Week.)

  • Spoofing Can Violate Wire Fraud Statute Rules Federal Judge: A federal district court in Chicago declined to dismiss criminal charges alleging violations of wire fraud prohibitions against James Vorley and Cedric Chanu related to alleged spoofing trading activities on the Commodity Exchange, Inc. from at least December 2009 through November 2011. Both individuals were formerly associated with Deutsche Bank and were named in a criminal complaint filed in July 2018. (Click here for background in the article “Alleged Spoofer Exonerated in Criminal Trial Agrees in Principle to CFTC Settlement; Two More Purported Spoofers Criminally Charged” in the August 5, 2018 edition of Bridging the Week.) The defendants were charged both with wire fraud (Click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1343) and with conspiracy to commit wire fraud (click here to access 18 U.S.C. §1349).

​The defendants had argued that they could not be convicted of wire fraud because a violation under the relevant statute requires the making of affirmative misrepresentations and spoofing trading does not entail false statements. According to defendants, their orders – even if spoofing orders – entailed no representations beyond their stated terms and solely communicated an implied commitment that if their orders were accepted before cancelled, they would be filled according to their terms.

The Hon. John Tharp, Jr., the presiding judge in this matter, disagreed with defendants’ arguments. He wrote that omitting or concealing material information, even absent a duty to disclose, constitutes a violation of wire fraud prohibitions “if the omission was intended to induce a false belief and action to the advantage of the schemer and the disadvantage of the victim.” Judge Tharp claimed that when orders are placed with an intent to cancel them before execution in connection with spoofing, the intent is to create a “false belief about the supply or demand for a commodity” so that a market moves in a direction to execute resting orders of the spoofer on one side of the market to the detriment of other traders on the other side of the market who are not knowledgeable of the spoofer’s trading intent.

The court also rejected defendants’ argument that the wire fraud statute is unconstitutionally vague. Judge Tharp wrote that spoofing is similar to pump and dump schemes that have frequently been prosecuted under wire fraud prohibitions.

The Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act that contained an express spoofing prohibition was not signed into law until July 21, 2010, and the anti-spoofing provision was not effective until July 16, 2011. Thus, the DOJ could not prosecute defendants utilizing the prohibition for the overwhelming majority of their purportedly illicit spoofing transactions. (Click here for background regarding the effective date of the anti-spoofing prohibition and other provisions of Dodd-Frank.)

Policy and Politics: In February 2019, the Futures Industry Association filed a friend of the court brief in this matter arguing that prosecuting defendants for wire fraud (and not spoofing) raised issues of concern to the business community because such action implied that orders entered without an intent of execution for any reason constituted fraudulent statements to the marketplace. However, observed FIA, such a view would challenge “the vitality of the established legal precept” that market participants have no obligation to disclose any information in connection with open orders including their intentions regarding such orders. According to FIA, criminalization of “a market participant’s failure to disclose trading intentions opens the door for arbitrary prosecutions and vexatious private claims.” (Click here to access a copy of the FIA filing.) The US Chamber of Commerce, the Bank Policy Institute and the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association made similar arguments in a friend of the court brief they also filed in this matter.

More Briefly:

  • CFTC Chair Says Position Limits Proposal Coming Soon; Head of DSIO Says Thematic Reviews Coming Soon Too: In a kick-off speech before FIA Expo in Chicago last week, Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, said the Commission will propose new position limits rules within the next few months. He also said that, among his other objectives, were issuance of a framework for principles-based regulation generally, principles guidance for digital assets, enforcement penalty guidance, and a cross-border rule for swap dealers. Although he associated no specific time frames with his other objectives, Dr. Tarbert quoted Thomas Edison in saying that “vision without execution is hallucination.”

Separately, Joshua Sterling, Director of the CFTC’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight, indicated that his Division staff would soon commence targeted thematic reviews of swap dealers and commodity pool operators. In a speech before the Alternative Investment Management Association, Mr. Sterling said the purpose of the review would be “both to mitigate the potential for blind spots in our oversight and enhance our engagement with registrants.” According to Mr. Sterling, firms subject to reviews are those likely “to have a significant impact” on derivatives markets and each review would be completed onsite within five business days. The objective of the reviews is not to refer matters to the Division of Enforcement, he said, but to provide general guidance to the industry and determine potential rulemakings.

  • US and Non-US Companies Charged by CFTC for Acting as Unregistered FCMs: XBT Corp. SARL d/b/a First Global Credit (FGC) settled charges brought both by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Securities and Exchange Commission that if offered and sold investment products to US person in return for payments in bitcoin in violation of certain legal provisions. According to both regulators, FGC is a Switzerland-based company that maintains a website and platform to solicit customers to trade futures and securities products.

The CFTC alleged that, from March 2016 through July 2017, FGC solicited and allowed US persons to trade futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s Globex platform without being registered as a futures commission merchant. The SEC charged that from 2014 through 2019, the firm offered and sold instruments based on US and internationally listed stocks to US persons that did not meet certain minimum financial standards by qualifying as “eligible contract participants” under applicable law (Click here to access a definition of an ECP at 7 U.S.C. §1a(18)). However, as these instruments constituted security-based swaps, they could only be sold to nonqualified US persons if the instruments were subject to an effective registration statement and were traded on a national securities exchange. FGC met neither of these requirements, alleged the SEC.

FGC settled with the CFTC and SEC by agreeing to pay each a US $100,000 fine. FGC additionally agreed to remit to the SEC US $32,952 as disgorgement and interest.

Unrelatedly, Upstream Energy Services LLC, a Texas-based crude oil and natural gas advisory firm, was also charged by the CFTC with operating as an FCM without registration. The CFTC claimed that between April 2017 and September 2018, the firm accepted orders for futures and options on behalf of two clients owned by the same person, and entered the orders and carried the resulting trades in its own trading accounts. Upstream extended credit to the clients for margin but was subsequently reimbursed by the clients for Upstream’s costs; Upstream also received fees from the clients for its trading services. Upstream agreed to pay the CFTC a US $75,000 fine to resolve its purported violation.

  • No Action Granted by SEC to NY Digital Trust Company to Settle Equities Transactions Without Clearing Agency Registration: Staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission granted Paxos Trust Company, LLC no action relief to act as a clearing agency for two years without registering as a clearing agency in connection with a private and permissioned distributed ledger system designed to facilitate simultaneous delivery vs. payment securities settlements. As a condition of its no action relief, Paxos will provide its offering to no more than seven participants; limit its services to a de minimus amount of activity; and solely settle equities that meet certain criteria. Paxos’s proposed settlement system will piggyback on existing structures by creating and utilizing digital representations of cash wired by broker-dealer participants to a Paxos bank account and digital representations of securities transferred by the same broker-dealers from their The Depository Trust Company accounts to a Paxos DTC account. According to a press release issued by Paxos, Credit Suisse and Société Générale will be among the first participants to use Paxos’s settlement services (Click here to access Paxos’s press release).

In other legal and regulatory developments involving Fintech:

  • DOJ Relies on Bitcoin Block Chain Analysis for Indictment of Leader and Users of Darknet Child Pornography Website: The Department of Justice quarterbacked the indictment of the founder of a darknet child pornography website – Welcome to Video ("WTV") – by a grand jury in the District of Columbia, and the arrest and charging of 337 site users nationwide and abroad. According to the DOJ, by tracing transactions on the bitcoin blockchain, it was able to identify the site’s alleged leader – Jong Woo Son — and the location of the site’s server’s physical location in South Korea. With analytic help from a private company, Chainalysis, DOJ was also able to identify the exchanges on which bitcoin was initially purchased for use on WTV, thus allowing the DOJ to identify potential users by relying on the exchanges’ know-your-customer information. (Click here to access background by Chainalysis.)

  • CFTC Chair Stresses Need for Principles-Based Regulation to Accommodate Fintech and Announces Elevation of LabCFTC to Operating Office: Heath Tarbert, Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s, indicated that innovation in the derivatives industry can best be encouraged by providing a “principles-approach to regulation.” Contemporaneously, during a presentation at the beginning at the CFTC’s Fintech Forward 2019 conference on October 24, Dr. Tarbert announced the elevation of LabCFTC to an independent operating office within the Commission (as opposed to a part of the Office of General Counsel) and the CFTC’s new membership in the Global Financial Innovation Network. GFIN is an organization of global regulators that encourages cooperation in the development, execution and distribution of new technologies. In connection with the Fintech Forward conference, LabCFTC also issued a primer on Artificial Intelligence (click here to access). The Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation  and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency also announced they joined GFIN last week (click here for background).

  • OCC Loses Effort to Have Scope of DFS Judgment Limiting National Fintech Charters Narrowed: A federal court in New York City granted the New York Department of Financial Services’ request for an order precluding the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency from approving fintech applicants who do not accept deposits for national bank charters. Both parties had agreed to the general framework of a proposed order mandating such outcome, but OCC had sought to limit its application solely to fintech applicants that had a nexus to New York State. Previously, the same court had ruled that NYS had standing to bring its legal action. (Click here for background in the article “Federal Court Opens Spigot Permitting NY DFS Lawsuit to Proceed Against Federal Bank Regulator for Planning to Issue Fintech Charters” in the May 5, 2019 edition of Bridging the Week.) In September 2019, a federal court in the District of Columbia ruled that the Conference of State Bank Supervisors had no standing to bring an analogous action against OCC, writing that the organizations' claims were unripe as, to date, no fintech company has applied for a relevant charter. (Click here for a copy of the relevant court decision.)

  • Purported Faulty Block Trade Reporting, Prearranged Trading to Obtain Exchange Incentive Fees and Failure to Supervise Result in NYMEX Disciplinary Action Settlements: McNamara Options Ltd. agreed to pay a fine of US $70,000 to resolve charges brought by the New York Mercantile Exchange that it failed to accurately reflect execution times on multiple block trade submissions and failed to report such block trades within required time frames. NYMEX also alleged that the firm did not “properly” train its employees regarding its requirements to accurately reflect the execution time of block trades on submissions. 

Unrelatedly, Ze Qian, a nonmember, resolved an unrelated disciplinary action by NYMEX that claimed he prearranged the execution of transactions involving steel futures between an account he traded for his employer and an account owned and controlled by another person to enable Mr. Qian’s employer to receive trade credits from a market-maker incentive program administered by the exchange. To resolve this matter, Mr. Qian agreed to pay a fine of US $5,000 and serve a two-year all CME Group exchanges’ access ban. 

Additionally, three nonmembers were all fined either US $40,ooo or US $50,000 by the Commodity Exchange, Inc. or NYMEX and permanently barred from accessing CME Group exchanges for trading for engaging in spoofing trading. The three persons are Shiv Agarwal, Krishna Lakani and In-Ho Hwang. Finally, Boston Metal Co., Ltd was also sanctioned US $40,000 for failing to supervise one of its employees who allegedly engaged in spoofing trading and for not ensuring that each of its traders used a unique Tag 50 identification when placing electronic orders.

  • Two Affiliated Broker-Dealers Agree to US $15 Million Sanction for Purported AML Program and Supervisory Deficiencies: BNP Paribas Securities Corp. and BNP Paribas Prime Brokerage, Inc. agreed collectively to pay a fine of US $15 million to resolve allegations by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority that, from February 25, 2013 through March 31, 2017, they failed to maintain and administer an adequate anti-money laundering program. Among other matters, FINRA claimed that until 2016, the firms did not conduct surveillance of penny stock transactions or transactions outside of traditional exchanges despite the heightened risks of such transactions including fraud, money laundering and lack of registration of such stocks with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The firms reviewed wire transfers involving US dollars, acknowledged FINRA, but purportedly failed to monitor wires involving foreign currencies or any wires to assess whether they involved high-risk jurisdictions or entities. FINRA claimed that during the relevant time, some employees of the firms escalated concerns regarding the adequacy of their AML program to senior management; however, said FINRA the firms “did not act in a timely manner to address the deficiencies its personnel identified.” FINRA indicated it considered the firms’ remediation efforts which commenced during its review in computing the amount of the firms’ fine.

  • Trader Accused by SEC of Making Misstatements Regarding Bond Pricing Asks for Summary Judgement Claiming Practices Were Industry Norm: James Im, who was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2017 for purportedly engaging in fraud by misrepresenting information related to commercial mortgage-backed securities he sold to customers, supported a motion for summary judgment in his favor by arguing that while his statements may have been misleading, they were not materially misleading and, in any case, none of his customers relied on them. This is because, claimed Mr. Im, none of Mr. Im’s customers would have considered his statements in assessing the value of the bonds he sold or whether to purchase them as they engaged with him solely on a principal to principal basis and he never acted on their behalf as an agent. Moreover, said Mr. Im, at no time did he act with scienter or recklessly because his misstatements were solely “negotiating positions [and] nothing more”, and “market participants understood that such misstatements were not uncommon.” Mr. Im was previously co-head of the CMBS desk at Nomura Securities International, Inc. (Click here for a copy of the SEC’s original complaint against Mr. Im.)

Career Preparedness

 Cache   

It’s higher ed’s catchphrase of the moment. Career readiness speaks to a host of concerns:

  • That a college education is excessively theoretical and disconnected from real world.
  • That students lack the skills and experience that employers seek.
  • That too many students flail and flounder due to a lack of realistic career aspirations or a practical plan to achieve their goals.

Employers and students themselves worry about college graduates’ career preparedness. A 2017 survey of 32,000 currently enrolled college students conducted by Gallup and Strada found that only a third of students strongly agreed that they will graduate with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the job market, and just half felt confident that their major will lead to a good job.

At the same time, a survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers found that fewer than half of recent college graduates were proficient in oral and written communication and intercultural fluency, and just 56 percent were competent in critical thinking and problem solving.

What, then, should be done?

Here are four simple steps colleges and universities can take to better prepare students for future careers.

Step 1: Provide students and faculty with actionable insights into employment trends, outcomes for particular majors and short- and long-term earnings.

Colleges and universities have an obligation to provide students and faculty with insights into their graduates’ economic future. Many students enter higher education with a rather narrow view of the range of employment possibilities, while too often faculty are largely unaware of their graduates’ actual employment outcomes.

At the University of Texas at Austin, the psychology department learned that only a small proportion of graduates pursued advanced degrees in psychology. Most graduates, in fact, went into HR or a related field, where the salaries were relatively low. The smaller number who went into research-related fields did much better financially. These insights encouraged the department to reimagine and redesign its curriculum.

Meanwhile, a UT system dashboard provides information on students’ median income for every program offered on the 14 UT campuses one, five and 10 years after graduating. Someone similar information is available for Colorado, Michigan and Wisconsin.

We can help our students by offering up-to-date labor market data, information about the demand for particular jobs, starting salaries and skills and educational requirements for specific careers. Equally important, we can introduce students to alternate majors and careers for those who, for example, aren’t accepted into a nursing or engineering program.

Step 2: Embed career exploration across the undergraduate experience.

Career exploration is too important to be left to a separate career center. In fact, according to a McGraw-Hill Education survey, fewer than half of college students use their institution’s career services office. Beginning in the freshman year, courses can open windows into career opportunities. Academic advisers can integrate career exploration into their advising sessions. In addition, institutions can offer skills workshops (for example, in Excel) that enhance students’ employability.

Step 3: Better align curricula with workforce outcomes.

A college or university is not a vocational school, but that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t offer majors in areas of growing student and employer demand. These include such fields as arts management and arts policy, data science, research methods, risk analysis, and sustainability -- none of which conflict with a liberal arts-focused curriculum.

There is no reason why supervised internships and clinical and field experiences and project-based learning cannot become a more integral part of a student’s undergraduate education. If internships prove difficult to scale, it is possible to consider alternatives, such as service learning and civic engagement projects or problem-solving teams that might help nonprofits address a particular challenge.

Step 4: Connect undergraduates with alumni and employers.

Why not tap an institutions’ greatest resource, its alumni, many of whom would be eager to offer career advice or even internship opportunities? Or partner with employers.

Here’s one striking example: Hunter College’s computer science department has taken advantage of a Tech in Residence program, in which working professionals from leading technology firms co-teach classes and offer skills and professional development workshops. In the process, these industry representatives create new learning opportunities for undergraduates in agile development, blockchain, distributed systems and web development.

We live in a time when earlier career expectations and road maps have broken down. The advice that made sense five or more decades ago -- start at the bottom of a company, work hard and rise up the corporate ladder -- has become outmoded in an economy where few can expect to work for a single employer or in a single field.

As job opportunities have proliferated, and particular sectors of the economy expand or contract, our students need to develop a more accurate sense of the employment landscape and the training and credentials that particular jobs require.

Developing that understanding and acquiring relevant skills needs to become an essential component of a 21st-century undergraduate education.

Steven Mintz is senior adviser to the president of Hunter College for student success and strategic initiatives.

Schlussfolgerung

Die Auswahl einer richtigen PIM-Beratung ist nicht leicht, aber ungefähr 10-mal einfacher als die Auswahl eines PIM-Systems ohne PIM-Berater. Bei der Auswahl einer Beratung sollte man die Branchenerfahrungen, das Leistungsportfolio und die Neutralität eines Dienstleisters berücksichtigen. Jeder sollte alle Vor- und Nachteile sorgfältig für sich selbst abwägen.

Die Einführung eines PIM-Systems ist ein komplizierter Prozess, in den viele Abteilungen eines Anwenders zu involvieren sind, damit die Software später auch so genutzt werden kann, wie es gedacht war. Und wenn Sie planen eine PIM-Beratung an Bord zu holen, machen Sie sich schon von Anfang an Gedanken darüber, ob diese nur während der Konzeptionsphase oder auch während der Umsetzung für Sie hilfreich sein kann. Eine endgültige Entscheidung darüber, ob man einen PIM-Berater auch während der Implementierung (Konzeption und Umsetzung) hinzuziehen kann, sollte man erst nach der Projektphase „Auswahl eines PIM-Systems” treffen.

K 2019: It’s a wrap

 Cache   
K 2019

It’s official and, to be honest, quite predictable: K 2019 was an unqualified success. The plastics and rubber trade show in Düsseldorf, Germany, from Oct. 16 to 23 attracted approximately 225,000 visitors from 165 countries, according to Messe Düsseldorf. They ogled stunning displays from the likes of Sabic—featured as one of PlasticsToday’s coolest things at the show—and Reifenhäuser—check out the video below—and kicked some tires as they pondered purchasing new plastics processing equipment. Visitors had an embarrassment of riches from which to choose: Organizers said that 3,330 exhibitors from 63 countries took part in this year’s event.

Members of the press were keenly interested in learning about new technologies, and the K, as always, did not disappoint. Stephen Moore and I combed the aisles and attended what seemed like wall-to-wall press conferences hunting down news for PlasticsToday readers. Articles that we posted leading up to, during and after the show are archived at www.plasticstoday.com/k-show. You will find some interesting reading there, including reports on how blockchain can be be applied to plastics traceability and sustainability, why Lanxess is using artificial intelligence to accelerate materials development, and the shape of cars to come. But wait, there’s more.

Following the K, I took a one-week vacation in Paris. With apologies to Charles Aznavour, it was “for me, for me, formidable.” Thanks for asking. On the downside, though, I wasn’t able to report on some innovations I discovered the second week of the show and share conversations I had with exhibitors . . . until now. Turn the page.

ExxonMobil puts flexible packaging on path to circular economy

Sustainability was the buzz word at K 2019, as we noted it would be ahead of the show. ExxonMobil (Irving, TX) was rigorously on message with a number of innovations and projects designed to advance the circular economy.

The chemicals giant announced at the event a collaboration with plastics extrusion company Reifenhäuser to produce new heavy duty sacks partly using recycled polyethylene from former sacks without sacrificing performance, even when fourth-cycle recycled PE is used. It also introduced Rethink Recycle technology with Vistamaxx performance polymers that enables increased use of recycled content in high-value applications. A key environmental benefit is that addition of Vistamaxx acts like a “compatibilizer” between PE and PP—the incompatible plastics mix in the melt, reducing the need for separation of the materials in preparation for recycling. The technology is being used in Patagonia to convert discarded plastic fishing ropes into high-quality end products. Closer to home, ExxonMobil also has collaborated with three partners to produce stand-up pouches (SUPs) made partly from recycled material from full-PE-laminated SUPs. The packaging is fully recyclable at the end of its life cycle.

ExxonMobil at k 2019
Peter Paul de Moor (left) and Adeline Duponchel of ExxonMobil show samples of a full-PE-laminated stand-up pouch and its cousin made partly with recycled content.

Flexible packaging typically requires different material layers to meet a range of property requirements, including stiffness, toughness and sealing and optical properties. Multi-material packaging, however, is difficult to recycle. ExxonMobil’s solution is an SUP made from a combination of 30% recycled material from a full-PE-laminated SUP and 70% virgin PE. The technology came about through a collaboration with Erema, Henkel and Hosokawa Alpine.

“We are committed to doing more with less at ExxonMobil,” Adeline Duponchel, Market Development Manager for PE in Europe, Middle East and Africa, told PlasticsToday. Recycled full-PE-laminated packaging furthers that commitment by using recycled PE from existing packaging in combination with performance PE polymers to manufacture new SUPs, she noted. The properties of the packaging with recycled content are not 100% identical to those using only virgin resin, conceded Duponchel, but they are more than good enough in terms of stiffness, toughness and shelf appeal. And they are recyclable, moving industry closer to the goal of circularity of flexible packaging.

Nova Chemicals' wants to 'STOP' waste plastics from ending up in marine environments

Sustainability was also a key feature at the Nova Chemicals (Calgary, AB) stand, which it shared with Borealis and Borouge. All three companies have a shared ownership but operate independent of each other, although they are pooling their resources and expertise in Project STOP.

“The initiative was co-founded in 2017 by Borealis and SystemIQ to bring circular economy solutions to cities in Southeast Asia with poor or mismanaged waste infrastructure programs,” Sarah Marshall, Director of Sustainability at Nova Chemicals, told PlasticsToday. The goal is to prevent plastic waste from ending up in marine environments by “engaging with communities and developing stable, long-term solutions to waste management,” she added.

Nova Chemicals' Sarah Marshall
Project STOP aims to bring circular economy solutions to cities in Southeast Asia with poor or mismanaged waste infrastructure programs, explained Sarah Marshall, Director of Sustainability at Nova Chemicals.

The program has now expanded to three cities and has welcomed the Alliance to End Plastic Waste as a strategic partner. The three-year partnership will focus on the regency of Jembrana on the northwest coast of Bali and study the feasibility of achieving a future free of unmanaged plastic waste throughout the island. Nova Chemicals is a founding member of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, added Marshall.

Remote healthcare, powered by 5G and Sabic

Sabic (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) sees the adoption of 5G wireless technology as critical to enabling many new application areas, notably in remote healthcare, and it sees opportunities for its materials in this fast new world.

Futurist medical research concept art

Lower latency will provide an almost instantaneous transmission of high volumes of data between devices, noted Sabic in its press release, enabling surgeons to remotely conduct procedures as if they were physically next to the patient. This evolution will stimulate the increasing adoption of robotics in surgical instrumentation, allowing doctors to perform surgery remotely from anywhere in the world, said Sabic.

Sabic believes that this trend can lead to growing use of its Ultem resins, LNP compounds and co-polymers in internal and external parts of next-generation surgical instruments because of their desirable properties, such as biocompatibility, lubricity, sterilization compatibility, and certification that can assist manufacturers in achieving regulatory compliance.

Stork spreads its wings

Just before K 2019 opened its doors in Düsseldorf, Germany, injection molding machine maker Stork Plastics Machinery (Hengelo, Netherlands) announced that Hydratec Industries was in far-reaching discussions to acquire a 75% interest in the company. Hydratec operates in the industrial systems and components space, serving the agricultural, automotive and healthcare markets. The remaining 25% share would remain with current shareholder Wadinko, a financial services company.

Stork IMM at K 2019

The half-century-old Stork is one of the smaller players in the injection molding machine marketplace, but it has earned a global reputation, particularly for its large-tonnage, high-cavitation, thin-wall packaging machines, said Benjamin Sutch, Managing Partner at Chudleigh Sutch UK Ltd., which represents the company in foreign markets. It started working with Stork in Asia/Pacific about three years ago, Sutch told PlasticsToday from the Stork stand at K, and is now seriously looking at establishing a footprint for the company throughout North and South America.

“We are actively seeking sales and service partners in the Americas and, indeed, several are ready to come on board,” said Sutch. “It’s very important to Stork to have live, zone-sensitive service for its customers.”


          

Con el decreto ley de dictadura digital, España queda fuera del acervo comunitario del Programa Horizon 2020 sobre Tecnologías de Información y Comunicación

 Cache   
El Horizonte 2020 contribuye a abordar los principales retos sociales, promover el liderazgo industrial en Europa y reforzar la excelencia de su base científica. El presupuesto disponible ha ascendido a 76.880 Millones de euros.

Uno de sus pilares es Tecnologías de Información y Comunicación (en el enlace pueden ver el programa en PDF).




El decreto ley que aprobó el impostor de Pedro Sánchez saca fuera del acervo comunitario a España.

En su presentación el programa dice:

Europa debería intensificar sus actividades de investigación en las áreas basadas en las tecnologías digitales prometedoras que ofrecen un impulso competitivo significativo para nuestras economías y responden a los desafíos sociales clave. Para el Programa de trabajo 2020, se priorizan las áreas de Inteligencia Artificial (IA), tecnologías clave para la transformación digital de fotónica a software, conectividad avanzada e inteligente con el emergente 5G e Internet de próxima generación, incluidas las tecnologías de contabilidad distribuida y Blockchain.

Solo en el preámbulo, España ya ha prohibido dos áreas, la del corredor 5G y el Blockchain.

Los primeros hitos de esta estrategia fueron el lanzamiento del European Blockchain Observatory and Forum, que tiene como objetivo acelerar la innovación de blockchain y el desarrollo del ecosistema blockchain dentro de la UE, y la Asociación Europea de Blockchain, firmada por 26 Estados miembros y Noruega, para Cooperar en el establecimiento de una infraestructura europea de servicios de blockchain

Sí, España es uno de los 26 Estados que ha firmado y el próximo lunes hay un Congreso sobre el tema en Málaga...

Una de sus acciones prioritarias del programa de la UE es Desarrollar una infraestructura de blockchain pública europea que se base en el marco legal europeo.
"Infraestrucutra de blockchain pública"
"Marco legal europeo"...

Es evidente que los de la Generalitat se han leído el programa, no así los del gobierno central...

Veremos cómo explica eso el Reino de España a sus amigos de la UE, aunque me temo que a Europa le importa una higa el retraso de España...


En fin, una vez más, España con el ancho ibérico...
          

El día que España decidió cargarse el blockchain. Vuelve la inquisición y el creacionismo.

 Cache   
La ley que ha aprobado el consejo de ministros socialista podría compararse con la inquisición y con una idea del creacionismo.

-La Inquisición fue una institución especial de enjuiciamiento e investigación creada por la iglesia católica romana durante el medioevo para luchar contra el librepensamiento y los movimientos populares antifeudales. Era un tribunal eclesiástico establecido para inquirir y castigar los delitos contra la fe.

-El Creacionismo es la creencia religiosa de que el Universo y la vida se originaron «de actos concretos de creación divina». Para los creacionistas de la Tierra joven, esto incluye una interpretación bíblica literal de la narrativa acerca de la creación presentada en el Génesis (el primer libro de la Biblia judeocristiana) y el rechazo de la teoría científica de la evolución.

Pues en eso andan los españoles. Prohibiendo cualquier idea que pueda representar una superioridad o avance tecnológico.
Si una mujer vive sola en el bosque haciendo remedios con hierbas hay que quemarla por bruja...

Hasta El País reconoce en un artículo de hoy la prohibición de que las administraciones puedan implantar el blockchain.
Cuidado, es una medida arcaica que arrastrará y empobrecerá a la mayoría de comunidades autónomas y organismos.




¿Qué es el blockchain?

Buscando en la red, la explicación más sencilla que he encontrado es esta (quizás David quiera añadir algo...):

Blockchain es una base de datos sólida, distribuida, inviolable y criptográficamente segura.

La cadena de bloques solo guarda el código de encriptación de los documentos, y una vez guardado, queda grabado para siempre. El lugar perfecto para almacenar derechos de propiedad, credenciales, identidades (de objetos o personas) y acuerdos entre partes.

Nadie puede engañar, sobornar ni hackear los datos inscritos en los bloques de Blockchain. Blockchain funciona a través de Smart Contracts, que es un protocolo informático que facilita, verifica, o hace cumplir, los acuerdos de una negociación, o ejecución de un contrato, de forma automática y transparente.
Blockchain trabaja sobre redes de nodos que almacenan toda la información. Existen tres tipos básicos de redes:

-Redes privadas: formadas por nodos cautivos.
-Redes Semipúblicas: formadas por nodos controlados por profesionales independientes.
-Redes públicas: formadas por nodos independientes y esparcidos geográficamente.

La integridad y el orden cronológico de la cadena de bloques se hacen cumplir con criptografía.




Bienvenidos al medievo.


          

Pedro Sánchez aprueba una ley de retroceso digital para empobrecer a Catalunya.

 Cache   
El impostor Pedro Sánchez hace suyas las palabras de Unamuno: "que inventen ellos".

El PSOE-PSC acaba de aprobar un decreto ley por el que Catalunya jamás podrá tener una tecnología superior a España. Dicho de otra manera, prohibido innovar.

De momento ya han bloqueado el corredor 5G, el blockchain, la idea de la identidad digital en Catalunya y la Agencia de Seguridad de Catalunya.


Bajo el argumento de que "la finalidad de estas medidas es garantizar la seguridad pública, tanto en las relaciones entre las diferentes administraciones públicas cuando traten datos personales como entre ciudadanos y Administraciones Públicas", los socialistas justifican la aprobación del decreto y la modificación de seis leyes por los "recientes y graves acontecimientos que han tenido lugar en parte del territorio español" que, aseguran, "han puesto de relieve la necesidad de modificar el marco legislativo vigente para hacer frente a la situación".

Es decir, vedar que Catalunya avance, poniendo en riesgo la tecnología catalana y ese 22@ que tanta rabia produce en Madrid.

El decreto también corta de raíz nuevos modelos de comunicación de nuevas formas de participación política, amparándose en el razonamiento de que "entre los principales retos que las nuevas tecnologías plantean desde el punto de vista de la seguridad pública se encuentran las actividades de desinformación, las interferencias en los procesos de participación política de la ciudadanía y el espionaje". De este modo, podrán "afrontar situaciones que pueden afectar al mantenimiento del orden público, la seguridad pública o la seguridad nacional".

O sea, "como no lo entendemos, lo prohibimos". Todavía regurgitan cuando hace 2 años Catalunya fue pionera mundial al ser capaz de crear el censo universal.


Ya ven, tal como dice el título del post, detrás de las cuestiones políticas y de catalanofobia, también hay el interés de que Catalunya no siga avanzando en su liderazgo TIC.


Este es el sector TIC catalán que el PSOE-PSC quiere cargarse.




Hay que recordar que Catalunya es la comunidad más inversora en tecnología, con una cifra superior a 493 M€ invertidos durante el primer semestre de 2019, seguida de Madrid y Andalucía.

Esa cantidad supone el 61,3% del total de lo que han invertido las comunidades.
Si contamos AGE (Administración General del Estado) y las entidades locales, su proporción sería el 33%.


Catalunya invierte tanto como el gobierno español en Tecnología

Franco tenía censores para los libros, revistas, cómic, letras de canciones..., ahora el impostor de Pedro Sánchez implantará la censura en las startups que salgan del 22@.
Podrá prohibirlas, espiarlas y/o plagiarlas.

Una dictadura digital que ni se le habría ocurrido al PP.

Are Biometrics a way Forward for Payment Industry?

 Cache   
Story 349533119

Payment fraud is a major issue for the payment industry. According to a survey, the risk of fraud in the payment industry is a major concern for 44% of companies in the financial sector, a 14% increase from the last year. While faster payment processing is the second major concern for survey participants, about 37% outlined this issue. Countries or businesses that have already implemented secure payment technologies can appreciate this concern as well.

Anything that can reduce the impact of fraudulent activities, will boost confidence in the payment marketplace and ensure safe transactions. Biometrics has the potential to both fight fraud and making payment faster. Isn’t it fascinating that in the digital world where no physical presence is required, your body parts become your identity?

Passwords are Outdated: Biometrics goes Beyond

Before discussing how Biometric Authentication can benefit the payment industry, let’s look at the current security features in the payment industry. Even though businesses are adopting biometric verification as a security measure but still Two-factor authentication (2FA) and passwords/PINs are the most common security measures.

Let us have an idea about how these two work. While smartphones are most usually used for digital transactions, so two factors in 2FA are ‘something you have’ and ‘something you know’.

Something you know is bank account information including user password or PIN. And something you have is a security token normally an OTP (One Time Password), that is sent to your phone. On the other hand, passwords halt the security of your payment on a single password. It is inevitably weak, no matter how strong the password is.

While Two-Factor authentication is good and secure but there are still issues. Firstly, it requires adding credit card or bank account information, which fraudsters could easily access using man in the middle attack or some other trick like spoofing. Forgetting a password or Pin is also a concern. Then there are people who hate passwords as it is difficult to remember them.

This is where Biometric verification can bring improvement. By replacing ‘something you know’ with ‘something you are’. It uses physical characteristics to verify your information by linking it to your identity. Biometrics technology can use several physical features for recognition such as fingerprint, facial, voice, and iris. The most common are fingerprint verification and facial recognition and some insiders predict that iris will also be a common recognition type in the coming years.

Studies indicate that MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication), which includes an extra feature added to 2FA i.e. Biometric verification, can block 99.9% of malicious attacks. Using a biometric system for payment has many benefits. Particularly, biometrics are unique to each consumer so chances for forgery and frauds are close to zero. Moreover, biometrics are always available to you wherever you are. This reduces the need to remember passwords.

Biometric Security streamlines User Experience

While passwords and 2FA could only secure. Biometric verification not only enhances security but also provides a seamless user experience. It removes the need to remember passwords, which is a huge improvement in user experience. In addition, it also makes the payment process faster.

Current Status of Biometric technology in Payment Sector

Biometric verification is not new. Several banks, online businesses, and financial institutions are making use of this technology for at least five years. But it is considered as an optional choice. There are third-party service providers that offer biometric verification solutions.

Solutions such as fingerprint, facial recognition have made it easy for companies in the payment sector to easily verify customer information using accurate biometrics. Many players in the industry are using these services to gain a competitive advantage.

According to a Juniper study, biometrics will authenticate $2 trillion worth of transactions, by 2023.      

Be it facial recognition, fingerprint authentication or iris scan, Biometric verification is going to revolutionize the payment sector. Especially, the need to avoid fraud and enhance user experience is paving ways for technology like biometric verification. Experts predict that biometric authentication will be the most used method for identity verification in coming years.

Digital Cash : The Unknown History of the Anarchists, Utopians, and Technologists Who Created Cryptocurrency

 Cache   
Auteur : Brunton, Finn
Editeur : Princeton University Press

The fascinating untold story of digital cash and its creators from experiments in the 1970s to the mania over Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin may appear to be a revolutionary form of digital cash without precedent or prehistory. In fact, it is only the best-known recent experiment in a long line of similar efforts going back to the 1970s. But the story behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and its blockchain technology has largely been untold?until now. In Digital Cash, Finn Brunton reveals how technological utopians and political radicals created experimental money to bring about their visions of the future: protecting privacy or bringing down governments, preparing for apocalypse or launching a civilization of innovation and abundance that would make its creators immortal.

The incredible story of the pioneers of cryptocurrency takes us from autonomous zones on the high seas to the world's most valuable dump, from bank runs to idea coupons, from time travelers in a San Francisco bar to the pattern securing every twenty-dollar bill, and from marketplaces for dangerous secrets to a tank of frozen heads awaiting revival in the far future. Along the way, Digital Cash explores the hard questions and challenges that these innovators faced: How do we learn to trust and use different kinds of money? What makes digital objects valuable? How does currency prove itself as real to us? What would it take to make a digital equivalent to cash, something that could be created but not forged, exchanged but not copied, and which reveals nothing about its users?

Filled with marvelous characters, stories, and ideas, Digital Cash is an engaging and accessible account of the strange origins and remarkable technologies behind today's cryptocurrency explosion.

MatRiCT: Efficient, Scalable and Post-Quantum Blockchain Confidential Transactions Protocol, by Muhammed F. Esgin and Raymond K. Zhao and Ron Steinfeld and Joseph K. Liu and Dongxi Liu

 Cache   
We introduce MatRiCT, an efficient RingCT protocol for blockchain confidential transactions, whose security is based on ``post-quantum'' (module) lattice assumptions. The proof length of the protocol is around two orders of magnitude shorter than the existing post-quantum proposal, and scales efficiently to large anonymity sets, unlike the existing proposal. Further, we provide the first full implementation of a post-quantum RingCT, demonstrating the practicality of our scheme. In particular, a typical transaction can be generated in a fraction of a second and verified in about 23 ms on a standard PC. Moreover, we show how our scheme can be extended to provide auditability, where a user can select a particular authority from a set of authorities to reveal her identity. The user also has the ability to select no auditing and all these auditing options may co-exist in the same environment. The key ingredients, introduced in this work, of MatRiCT are 1) the shortest to date scalable ring signature from standard lattice assumptions with no Gaussian sampling required, 2) a novel balance zero-knowledge proof and 3) a novel extractable commitment scheme from (module) lattices. We believe these ingredients to be of independent interest for other privacy-preserving applications such as secure e-voting. Despite allowing 64-bit precision for transaction amounts, our new balance proof, and thus our protocol, does not require a range proof on a wide range (such as 32- or 64-bit ranges), which has been a major obstacle against efficient lattice-based solutions. Further, we provide new formal definitions for RingCT-like protocols, where the real-world blockchain setting is captured more closely. The definitions are applicable in a generic setting, and thus are believed to contribute to the development of future confidential transaction protocols in general (not only in the lattice setting).

Digital skills in high demand as China's industries upgrade: report

 Cache   
BEIJING, Nov. 3 (Xinhua) -- Chinese firms are increasingly looking for professionals with a set of digital skills in a bid to gain a competitive edge amid industrial upgrading, a report showed.

Demand for talent with emerging skills triples that for those with common skills, with digitalization-related qualifications being prioritized in China, global employment-oriented social networking platform LinkedIn said in a talent intelligence report based on an analysis of recruitment information of its enterprise members.

Full stack development, artificial intelligence and blockchain know-how are the most wanted technical skills, while compliance knowledge, digital marketing skills and risk management are also in high demand, the report showed.

The growing demand for such skills echoes Chinese enterprises' drive to transform their businesses with digital technologies and tools, said Nancy Wang, head of talent solutions with LinkedIn China, adding that it is also necessary to take a data-based smart approach in talent recruitment and management.

China is stepping up the promotion of the integration of digital technologies with the real economy to support the growth of agriculture, manufacturing and consumption. Global market intelligence firm IDC expects the digital economy to account for 60 percent of global GDP by 2022, with the share in China even higher at 65 percent.
