          As It Ramps Up Enforcement, the SEC Has Been Looking Abroad for Assistance      Cache   Translate Page      
US SEC International Cooperation

2018 has been a hallmark year for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s enforcement against cryptocurrency companies, and, according to one director, international collaboration with other regulatory agencies has played a supporting role in the SEC’s recent regulatory actions.

Steven Peikin, co-director of the Division of Enforcement at the SEC, has credited international collaboration as a useful weapon in the agency's arsenal for bringing fraudulent or unregistered actors to justice. Peikin made this opinion known at a speech he delivered at the Harvard Law School’s Program on International Financial Systems (PIFS) for Regulators of Securities Markets on December 3, 2018.

Peikin leads a team of attorneys and accountants who investigate and prosecute civil violations of U.S. federal securities laws. According to him, his division has the "daunting task of ferreting out misconduct and, where appropriate, recommending civil enforcement actions that variously seek injunctions or cease-and-desist orders, penalties, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains, suspensions and bars of bad actors, and the temporary suspension or delisting of securities."

They have been involved in cases like the recent settlement of charges against music producer DJ Khaled and Floyd Mayweather Jr., who were both charged for touting crypto offerings. The team also charged and reached a settlement with EtherDelta co-founder Zachary Coburn for flouting federal securities laws by operating an unregistered national securities exchange.

On the topic of his division’s track record of enforcement, Peikin praised the SEC's "collaboration with international regulators and law enforcement" as being a critical element that made it possible.

"Our investigations often involve witnesses and evidence in different countries, transactions that cross international boundaries, and the resulting application of multiple different legal systems."

The SEC director also highlighted the separate types of securities law violations in the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) space and how collaboration with their counterparts overseas has helped the agency protect the market from dubious actors.

The first group includes ICOs that meet the criteria of a security and are in violation of federal securities law for registration failures. The second category are fraudulent ICOs where the issuers use the "excitement around the crypto asset space to simply rip off money from investors."

Late last year, the agency obtained an emergency asset freeze against Dominic Lacroix, his partner Sabrina Paradis-Royer and the company PlexCorps for marketing and selling PlexCoin to unsuspecting investors in August 2017. The token sale is a case-and-point example of the type of blatantly fraudulent activity the SEC has sought to punish in 2018.

The founders had promised an absurd 1,354 percent profit in less than 29 days, having raised $15 million from global investors. “We learned of this ICO from our counterparts at the AMF [Authorité des marchés financiers] in Quebec, who provided us with important evidence in support of our complaint and motion for emergency relief,” Peikin said in his speech.

"Staff at the AMF provided declarations in our proceeding, which the court relied on in ruling against the defendants," he continued.

Peikin said the agency would continue to work with its global partners as it develops its ongoing ICO investigations. His argument shares the sentiment of the recently held G20 Summit in Buenos Aires. At the summit, world leaders came together to discuss, among other topics, the need to regulate “crypto-assets for anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism in line with FATF [Financial Action Task Force] standards.”

          South Korea Is Trialing Blockchain Voting — Here’s What That Means      Cache   Translate Page      
South Korea Blockchain Voting

South Korea will test out a new blockchain voting system this month, sources close to the developments have confirmed to Bitcoin Magazine. Developed by the country’s National Election Commission (NEC) and its Ministry of Science and ICT, the distributed ledger system is based on IBM’s Hyperledger Fabric and will be used to authenticate voters and save voting results in real time.

South Korean officials believe a blockchain voting system will increase both security and transparency, thereby improving people’s trust in digital voting. The NEC initially ran an online voting system dubbed “K-voting” back in 2013, but, despite 5.64 million users, trust remained low due to fraud and hacking concerns.

The system will be trialed in the private sector by Handysoft Consortium, which provides collaboration systems for smart work environments. The NEC says the trial is a pilot test designed to determine the viability of blockchain technology, wherein a small sample of users will use the pilot to answer a questionnaire.

With the pilot, the voting system will be used to gather responses from surveys issued by the Korea Internet and Security Agency — the region’s official internet content watchdog — on user experience, including satisfaction among trial participants. Their personal information is then collected from the user group administrator and uploaded directly to the blockchain system, where it is stored for the next seven days before being deleted.

The NEC says the plan is to eventually introduce the blockchain online voting system in democratic elections through a step-by-step pilot operation that will check the safety and stability of the system. The introduction of the voting platform into public official elections like National Assembly elections, local elections or presidential elections will be a policy decision made via the nation’s legislative branch.

Should legislation move forward, users will be able to cast their votes in the future using either their personal computers or mobile phones instead of in-person or by mail. Data recorded during the elections will be saved to the distributed network, so voters can see the progress of the elections as more votes are cast.

The NEC is confident the system will eliminate the possibilities of hacking and voter fraud. In addition, the organization says it will also add elements like big data, internet of things (IoT) technology and artificial intelligence (AI), granted the system proves popular enough.

South Korea is not the first nation to experiment with blockchain voting. Japan’s city of Tsukuba became the first area to experiment with the technology for voting purposes back in September of 2018. Voters’ identities were verified utilizing the Japanese equivalent of social security cards. From there, accounts were created for citizens wishing to vote on what the Japan Times called “social contribution projects.”

Unfortunately, the system was not without its problems. Many voters reported forgetting their login passwords and being unable to cast their votes within the appropriate timeframes. Furthermore, there was little clarity offered once a vote was cast on whether it had been counted.

West Virginia also experimented with blockchain voting during the 2018 midterm elections. Designed by mobile voting platform Voatz, the system was designed for American troops serving overseas who wished to cast their votes in the November federal elections. Voatz used facial-recognition software to match voters’ faces to their government-issued ID cards. From there, troop members could ultimately cast their ballots, which were then anonymized and recorded via the blockchain.

          What Bitcoin Did #53 Grin's Michael Cordner aka Yeastplume on Implementing Mimblewimble      Cache   Translate Page      

'œThere may be a few people who genuinely think a deflationary currency is the way to go, nobody on the Grin team does.'

'" Michael Corder (Yeastplume)

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Friday 30th Nov, 2018

Project: Grin

Role: Developer

Outside of the most hardcore Bitcoin maximalists, there are some who respect a minimal number of alternative cryptocurrency projects. My experience in creating this podcast is that you find some who say they are maximalists, but Monero is cool, or that Decred is interesting.

The ability to command respect is usually steeped in a currencies foundation sharing characteristics of Bitcoin:

  • An anonymous founder

  • A focus on decentralisation

  • A monetary policy which does not enrich the founders and developers

  • No premine

One such project which has sparked interest is Grin's implementation of Mimblewimble, a new coin which attempts to solve some of the privacy and scaling issues of Bitcoin.

On August 2nd, 2016, Tom Elvis Jedusor, a contributor to the Bitcoin Wizards IRC channel dropped his whitepaper, describing a blockchain with a radically different approach to transaction construction from Bitcoin. In October 2016, Andrew Poelstra from Blockstream completed his analysis of the whitepaper and dropped a position paper filling in some of the gaps from the original paper to make precise the idea.

In the middle of November, Ignotus Peverell, another anonymous developer, appeared on the same IRC channel with a link to GitHub with an implementation of Mimblewimble, and this is how Grin was born.

Fast forward to today and Grin has launched its fourth testnet and is preparing to launch its mainnet in January of next year.

In this interview I talk with Michael Cordner, aka Yeastplume, a developer working on the Grin implementation of Mumblewimble, we discuss why Grin is acceptable for some Bitcoiners, their approach to monetary policy and governance, and how to mine Grin.

          #264 Nick Sullivan: Cloudflare - The Internet's (De)centralized Security Blanket      Cache   Translate Page      

We enter dozens of trust relationships ever time we interact with the Web. Browsers, ISPs, DNS providers, cloud hosting companies, all the way down to the handful of people who control certificate root keys; we rely on the integrity of these intermediaries to serve reliable, and accurate information. The concentration of power by any one of these actors threatens to compromise the very foundational principles of the Web. Decentralized technologies, like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tor, and IPFS seek to reverse this trend.

We're joined by Nick Sullivan, Chief Cryptographer at Cloudflare. Founded less than 10 years ago, the company offers content delivery services (CND), DNS, and DDoS protection to over 12 million websites. The company contributes to open source cryptography libraries, some of which are used by Etherum. They recently launched an IPFS gateway and features which allow users to have strong guarantees as to the integrity of the content.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Nick's background as a cryptographer and previous position at Apple
  • The Internet's infrastructure and trust model
  • How Cloudflare is experimenting with IPFS
  • The challenges to hosting static websites with IPFS
  • Cloudflare's Onion routing service (Tor) and the benefits to users
  • The Roughtime protocol and encrypted SNI
  • Cloudflare's contribution to open-source cryptography libraries
  • The vulnerabilities of DNS and Cloudflare's free private DNS service (1.1.1.1)

          L'innovazione a impatto sociale positivo di BNP Paribas Cardif: Mabasta, Leaf e Uyolo i ...      Cache   Translate Page      
I vincitori di Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018 premiati durante l'evento finale del contest internazionale promosso da BNP Paribas Cardif, tra le prime dieci compagnie assicurative in Italia (Classifica ANIA 2017), in collaborazione con Insurance Up, sono Mabasta (1° classificato), Leaf (2° classificato) e Uyolo (3°classificato). A selezionare in real time le migliori idee che hanno un impatto sociale positivo sulle persone e sulla società, una giuria di esperti e il pubblico in sala che hanno votato i dieci finalisti via webapp durante l'avvincente Final Challenge in cui si sono sfidati con passione e creatività. I tre vincitori verranno ora supportati dal team R&D di BNP Paribas Cardif che li seguirà nello sviluppo e nella concretizzazione del loro progetto, tenendo in considerazione le esigenze del mercato e della Compagnia. La quinta edizione di Open-F@b Call4Ideas, contest longevo e di successo che ha contribuito a costruire un modello consolidato di Open Innovation per BNP Paribas Cardif, ha avuto una grande adesione con 129 progetti pervenuti dall'Italia e dall'estero, a testimonianza che il tema è molto sentito.  I tre migliori progetti hanno rappresentato al meglio il connubio tra innovazione e sostenibilità. Con Mabasta sarà possibile prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo nelle scuole con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi; Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali, permettendo a rifugiati e migranti di viaggiare in sicurezza, senza contanti, proteggendo i propri risparmi; Uyolo è una startup innovativa che si occupa di ideare, sviluppare e commercializzare prodotti innovativi ad alto valore tecnologico nei campi della filantropia, volontariato e imprenditoria sociale. Tra i fattori chiave che hanno portato alla vittoria le tre idee figurano, oltre al contenuto tecnologico e alla capacità della proposta di generare un impatto positivo su persone e società, anche la fattibilità del progetto. "Quest'anno il tema di Open-F@b Call4Ideas ci sta particolarmente a cuore perché per noi l'innovazione non è più solo una questione tecnologica. Vogliamo innovare per prevenire, assistere e proteggere meglio i nostri clienti, migliorando la qualità della vita delle persone. Questo significa offrire prodotti con un valore tangibile e riconosciuto attraverso servizi di assistenza di alta qualità inclusi, per supportare i clienti in situazioni difficili, migliorare la customer experience, favorendo l'interazione con nuovi touchpoints, e rendere le polizze ampiamente accessibili e semplici." - ha dichiarato Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif - "Il fattore abilitante che ci aprirà nuovi scenari di miglioramento dei bisogni sociali, sostenendo anche la nostra competitività, sarà la capacità di saper creare e gestire ecosistemi dove integrare competenze assicurative, tecnologia, servizi, collaborazione con startup, partner, player di altri settori, attori sociali, dipendenti e comunità." La cerimonia di premiazione - presentata dal blogger e conduttore radiofonico Luca Viscardi - si è tenuta ieri a Milano presso la Fondazione Catella, trasformata per l'occasione in una "Foresta delle idee". Prendendo spunto dalla pianta del nuovo parco, La Biblioteca degli Alberi, all'interno del quale è inserita la Fondazione Catella, gli ospiti sono stati accolti sin dal cortile da sfere luminose a simboleggiare i progetti e le idee che iniziano a germogliare. All'interno della sala i partecipanti hanno potuto, quindi, visitare un percorso espositivo con alberi luminosi, ognuno dei quali rappresentava un progetto finalista. La serata è stata aperta dagli interventi di Isabella Fumagalli, Head of Territory for Insurance in Italy di BNP Paribas Cardif, e di Kelly Russel, CEO e Direttore Generale della Fondazione Catella, cui sono seguiti altri interventi di esperti del mondo Insurtech che hanno portato la loro esperienza e hanno animato la serata. Tra questi, Andrea Rangone, CEO di Digital360, Gabriele Benedetto, Amministratore Delegato di Telepass e Marco Pozzi, Incubation Manager di ImpactHub. La Final Challenge, condotta per la prima parte da Luca Viscardi e poi da Giovanni Iozzia, Chief Editor di Economy Up, ha visto le start-up sfidarsi con confronti a coppie ed eliminazione diretta. L'evento si è concluso con la premiazione dei progetti vincitori a cura di Isabella Fumagalli e di Andrea Veltri, Chief Marketing Officer & Strategy di BNP Paribas Cardif.   Open-F@b Call4Ideas 2018: i progetti vincitori   1° classificato: MABASTA "Mabasta" è nato nel 2016 come movimento ideato e animato da adolescenti, per contrastare e, possibilmente, prevenire i fenomeni del bullismo e del cyberbullismo con azioni svolte "dal basso", da parte dei ragazzi stessi. È un'impresa sociale che opera principalmente attraverso l'uso consapevole e positivo del web e della tecnologia. Mabasta si esprime e agisce nei linguaggi multimediali e interattivi dei ragazzi in quanto "è" dei ragazzi. Progetto - Innovativo, attuale, d'impatto La mission di Mabasta è quella di prevenire e contrastare il bullismo con azioni "dal basso". Il progetto attraverso il quale viene svolta questa mission prende il nome di "Modello Mabasta" e consiste in una originale serie di consigli e azioni comportamentali che ogni classe e scuola d'Italia può liberamente adottare. È un innovativo protocollo di iniziative svolte quasi esclusivamente dagli studenti e supervisionate dagli adulti (insegnanti e presidi). Il Modello è rivolto a tutti i livelli di scuola, dalle elementari alle superiori. Positive Impact Innovation Il valore aggiunto consiste nel fatto che è, in assoluto, la prima volta che ad occuparsi di bullismo e cyberbullismo sono i giovani stessi, ossia coloro che sono direttamente coinvolti e protagonisti (vittime, "bulli" e "bulle", ma anche gli spettatori). Ad oggi questo forte impatto è stato dimostrato sia dalla quantità di studenti e scuole che hanno interagito con Mabasta negli ultimi due anni, sia dalla grande attenzione dei media e delle istituzioni (Presidente Mattarella, Ministri, Camera, Sanremo, Spiderman, quotidiani, tv e radio nazionali, ...). Team Giorgio Armillis, Martina Caracciolo, Mattia Carluccio, Mirko Cazzato, Denise De Cillis, Patrick De Silla, Marta Di Giuseppe, Niki Greco, Simone La Gioia, Andrea Laporta, Francesca Laudisa, Maria Marsano, Michela Montagna, Francesco Rizzo, Filippo Staccioli, Daniela Tafuri. Adult leader: Daniele Manni.   2° classificato: LEAF Leaf offre servizi bancari virtuali alle popolazioni vulnerabili che attraversano i confini territoriali. Leaf sostiene le persone che hanno perso l'accesso a tutto ciò che hanno guadagnato, archiviando e trasportando i loro beni attraverso i confini mediante un dispositivo mobile, senza l'utilizzo dello smartphone. Rifugiati e migranti possono viaggiare senza contanti, sapendo che i loro account sono sicuri e accessibili a livello globale. Leaf protegge i risparmi dei clienti attraverso la tecnologia blockchain senza esposizione alla volatilità della criptovaluta, costruendo le basi per un'identità economica completa di dati biometrici, transazioni e risparmi. Progetto - Sicurezza, identità, convenienza Con Leaf un rifugiato crea un account, invia denaro mobile alla piattaforma e può quindi viaggiare senza contanti. Amici e familiari possono inviare denaro all'account del cliente. Una volta sicuri, i contanti vengono prelevati nella nuova valuta locale o utilizzati come garanzia per un microprestito. Il progetto sta partendo nella regione del Nord Kivu in Africa con 150.000 rifugiati provenienti da RDC, Rwanda e Burundi. Leaf guadagna con piccole commissioni di transazione, spread di valuta estera e investendo i risparmi dei clienti durante il trasporto. Positive Impact Innovation Consentendo ai clienti che attraversano i confini di conservare i propri risparmi, Leaf apre la strada alle rimesse internazionali creando, nel contempo, un'identità biometrica ed economica documentata. Leaf consente ai rifugiati di partecipare all'economia formale. Un maggiore accesso ai fondi fornisce sicurezza finanziaria e diminuisce la dipendenza dai Paesi ospitanti e dagli aiuti esteri. Trattare i rifugiati come clienti piuttosto che come beneficenza aiuta a stabilire la fiducia, a garantire la responsabilità e a dare dignità ai rifugiati. Team Nat Robinson, Tori Samples   3° classificato: UYOLO Uyolo è una startup innovativa che si occupa di ideare, sviluppare e commercializzare prodotti innovativi ad alto valore tecnologico nei campi della filantropia, volontariato e imprenditoria sociale, con l'obiettivo di rendere queste attività parte integrante della nostra quotidianità e contribuire ai 17 Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile dell'ONU. Lottare per l'uguaglianza, per i diritti delle donne, per una prosperità sostenibile e inclusiva e molto altro, sarà possibile da oggi grazie alla Uyolo App, il social network per l'impatto sociale. Progetto - Fiducia, innovazione, felicità Uyolo è la nuova community per chi desidera cambiare il mondo. Grazie alla Uyolo App, questa impresa diventa semplice e divertente. All'interno del nostro social network dedicato all'impatto sociale, gli utenti possono condividere contenuti legati alla causa sociale di proprio interesse, raccogliere fondi per associazioni no-profit certificate, ottenere informazioni sugli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile e donare con un semplice "like": una piccola rivoluzione tecnologica per realizzare un enorme cambiamento. Positive Impact Innovation Uyolo nasce con una grande promessa, quella di ispirare i giovani a diventare attori del cambiamento e protagonisti degli Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile (SDGs), per una società più propensa alla cura degli altri e alla condivisione (dal nostro motto, We Care, We Share) in particolare nei confronti dei soggetti più "indifesi." Educando gli utenti sugli SDGs ed offrendo servizi innovativi per le imprese impegnate nella sostenibilità, Uyolo punta inoltre a contribuire allo sviluppo di un'economia etica e sostenibile.

           Comment on IMF: The case for a new digital currency by K. Chris C.       Cache   Translate Page      
"Digital," or "blockchain," "money" is just another Khazarian scam--part of their grift-machine. The people of the Liberty Dollar were persecuted, robbed, and caged for the audacity of minting a precious metal substitute to the Khazarians' fiat-grift. In contrast, the "blockchain money" substitute appeared with a strange and unproven pedigree, and has been embraced by Khazarian controlled governments instead of oppressed--a sure sign that the fix is in. And "blockchain money" is currently decentralized, but is can easily be centralized. There are already calls to do just that under the guise that the size of the transaction ledger is growing too large and too fast. "Blockchain money" is the fourth fence piece. Use it, play with it, but don't be surprised when you find a barred gate where it was once open. A good primer on technology of "blockchain money" is: "Blockchain-Blueprint for a New Economy" by Melanie Swan One is not a true American until resident in the ADL's database.

Asunto: Re: ¿Cómo Están En Venezuela?

Nuevo aumento de sueldo para los Venezuelanos



Y el cualquier parte del mundo dirían "uff que bueno" "excelente que les aumenten el sueldo" "que suerte tienen los Venezolanos que les aumentan el suendo en diciembre"



Pues les diré que no es para nada alentador el aumento de sueldo que en verdad fué una devaluación interna, ya ni siquiera se devalúan de acuerdo al dolar negro sino que ahora devalúan el bolívar con respecto al PETRO...



Como es eso? dirán ustedes.



Pues bien es así:



Salario anterior: 1.800

Salario actual: 4.500



Es un aumento de 1.5 veces EXCELENTE!!!! NO, pues no...



Antes del aumento podías comprar 1 Petro con 3.600Bs y ahora 1 Petro Vale 9.000; eso si el precio del petro en Dólares casi no ha variado de 60$ por Petro así que en vez de ser un aumento de 1.5 es una devaluación de 1.5 veces (el sueldo con respecto al petro es de 30$ al mes ó lo que es lo mismo 1/2 Petro cryptomoneda que no existe en el blockchain por lo que no existe como cryptomoneda real, se compra sólo con dólares y si la quieres vender te devuelven bolívares)



Eso internamente, externamente (dolar negro) el sueldo lo acaban de subir de 3.6 dólares al mes a 9 dolares al mes. Alguien puede decirme que se puede comprar con 9$ al mes... Si no he visto mal por ahí las hamburguesas de McDonalds baratas salen en 4$ +/- no? así que +/- 2 hamburguesas se puede comprar con 1 mes COMPLETO de salario



Para no perder la costumbre (antes del aumento ya que no he tenido chance de pasar al mercado)

1Kg de Harina 450 (9.000 el bulto de harina)

Cereal de chocolate 800

Carne de Res 1Kg 1.500 (ya va a desaparecer porque acaban de intervenir los mataderos)

Aceitunas 1Kg 6.000 (había comprado 300 Gr en casi 400 Bs, es decir cerca de 1.000 el Kg y subió MUCHISIMO)

Pasas caja de 250gr 3.300

Papel Toilet 2 rollos 1.200

Mantequilla 500

1Kg cebollas 2.500

1 Kg papas 1.500

Pollo -> No existe en los anaqueles

Huevos de gallina -> no existe en los anaqueles

Pan de jamon último precio que me ateví a preguntar: 2.800

2 Litro refresco 750

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
As Shane posted yesterday,  the latest DomainSherpa.com review came out Monday. Shane talked about mixing it up on the show in the future because the portfolios are so bad. I remember several years ago Cyger would take one domain  submission from anyone that wanted to submit a name for the upcoming show. There might be 30 domains but all from different people. I always like this idea because every week I’d have a chance to see if the domain I submitted was talked about. Maybe they should bring this back or do it every once in awhile.
Another idea is to have the submitter give an explanation as to why the hell they registered the name, followed by their thought process on why this name, out of all they might own, was submitted for review. That would give the Sherpa’s points to discuss with the submitter, and not just politely dismiss the portfolio as the registrations of a lunatic. But damn, It is unfathomable to me that so many people just keep doing the same things over and over. I mean there is no way these people are watching the other episodes and thinking, “hmmm, maybe my names are different and awesome”. It’s time for tough love, feelings may get hurt, but you’ll be better for it. You’ll not only save money, you might actually make some too.
Maybe the point’s not being made clearly and loudly enough: WILL SOMEONE OR SOME BUSINESS BUY THIS DOMAIN? When it comes down to it, that is the only question that matters. I have a hard time believing the portfolio submitter was like “hells yes! Jackpot! I just bought Upper Abdomen in the .com! You hear that? Ching Ching, that’s the sound of the cash register bringing in the money!” 
I pulled some domains that are available to register based on some of the root words used in the list. I didn’t even like most of the root words that made up the list, but I used them anyway. As always, these names may not sell, may not even be “good” domains, but I think they’re better than the submitted list. They were all previously registered so they’re not potential traditional “hand registrations” I’m calling these “reg fee resurrections”, names that were deleted at some point in the past.

          Central Bank Digital Currency Threatens Financial Privacy and Economic Growth      Cache   Translate Page      

Various proposals for “central bank digital currency” (CBDC) have been under discussion for several years now. The central bank of Ecuador launched a digital currency in 2015 — and shut down the failed project three years later. A number of economists have addressed the topic.

What is a CBDC? It is a payment medium that would be denominated in the established fiat money unit, not in any new unit. There are two main models: (1) a digital token that, like traditional coins and currency notes, and like Bitcoin, passes peer-to-peer without going through the interbank clearing system, presumably validated by a distributed-ledger blockchain system; and (2) account balances that individuals and businesses can directly hold on the books of the central bank, retail versions of the balances that commercial banks presently hold there for interbank payments. The latter model is not really properly called a currency, being a deposit-transfer system, but it is put under the “digital currency” umbrella because it resembles fiat currency notes in being a liability of the central bank, and as such a “final” means of payment, and because transactions would settle nearly instantly on a single balance sheet.[1]

The debate over CBDCs was recently revived by the IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde in a speech suggesting, rather tentatively, that central banks should consider issuing some kind of digital currency so as to keep up with the times. (Why on earth the IMF continues to exist, long after the demise of the Bretton Woods system that it was created to support, is a question for another time.)

Lagarde begins her speech with a potted history of money. Although she does not attribute the origin of money to the state, she suggests that the state helps to improve money. Once bank-issued money arose, “spearheaded by the Italian bankers and merchants of the Renaissance,” trust in the issuer became important. Thus: “Trust became essential—and the state became the guarantor of that trust, by offering liquidity backstops, and supervision.” The timeline matters here. In fact, Italian bankers began providing money payments via transferable account balances some time before 1200 AD, whereas European states provided nothing in the way of “liquidity backstops, and supervision” until many centuries later. So state guarantees were not essential to the spread of bank-issued money historically. Nor was the popularity or safety of private banknotes, as issued by 17th century London goldsmiths, or by 18th and 19th-century Scottish or Canadian bankers, historically dependent on state guarantees.

Lagarde rightly notes that “the fintech revolution … questions the role of the state in providing money.” She points to the recent proliferation of digital private payment providers “from AliPay and WeChat in China, to PayTM in India, to M-Pesa in Kenya” and namechecks “cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple.” She expresses her own position on the desirable monetary role of the state in surprisingly tentative language: “Some suggest the state should back down. Still, I am not entirely convinced. … I believe we should consider the possibility to issue digital currency. There may be a role for the state to supply money to the digital economy.”

On the plus side of the CBDC ledger, Lagarde proposes that a central bank digital currency “could satisfy public policy goals, such as (i) financial inclusion, and (ii) security and consumer protection; and to provide what the private sector cannot: (iii) privacy in payments.” Wait, what? It is of course laughable that a government would itself provide greater privacy in payments than it allows private institutions to provide. Could this have been a joke intended to lighten the mood of the speech? The private sector can in fact provide as much financial privacy as customers desire, as numbered Swiss bank accounts once did, and as “privacycoin” crypto projects today remind us. Lack of privacy stems from government restrictions, not from private-sector inability.

Lagarde says that “There may be scope for governments to encourage private sector solutions” to the problem of financial inclusion “by providing funding, or improving infrastructure.” More effective ways to encourage private sector solutions to banking the unbanked would be (a) deregulation, especially not requiring permission for innovations in mobile and other payment platforms, (b) guarantees not to interfere in private payment platforms once launched, and (c) guarantees on the privacy of private sector accounts from government surveillance, which might help to attract some of the warily unbanked to deposit use.

To her credit, Lagarde recognizes that people value the privacy provided by currency: “Cash, of course, allows for anonymous payments. We reach for cash to protect our privacy for legitimate reasons: to avoid exposure to hacking and customer profiling, for instance.” But she is vague at best, and dissembling at worst, on how deposits on the central bank’s books would insure privacy. She promises that customer identities “would not be disclosed to third parties or governments unless required by law,” but adds: “Anti-money laundering and terrorist financing controls would nevertheless run in the background. If a suspicion arose it would be possible to lift the veil of anonymity and investigate.” Would any suspicion by a policeman or tax collector be enough to lift the veil? If so, then the CBDC would be no more private than ordinary current-day bank deposits. J. P. Koning not unfairly characterizes what Lagarde offers as a “Faustian bargain”: “The state will issue digital currency that protects us from information snoops in the private sector, on the condition that it gets a back door.”

In the US and Europe, at least, banks today are required to notify regulators of large or “suspicious” deposit and withdrawal activities, and are expected to surrender account information to the authorities on a written request, without a court order or a search warrant.[2] It is hard to imagine that any government would instruct or allow its central bank to create accounts with greater privacy protection against the national government than commercial bank accounts have.

In the background to Lagarde’s speech is a November 2018 IMF staff discussion note on CBDC that she cites. [3] The note itself does not offer a brief for CBDC, but rather enumerates plusses and minuses. Comparing CBDC to cash, demand deposits, and non-bank private digital payment media, the note’s authors find that “CBDC would not strictly dominate any of these alternative forms of money.”

The staff discussion note emphasizes the hope of Keynesian macroeconomists that “interest-bearing CBDC would eliminate the effective lower bound on interest rate policy,” but points out that it would have this effect “only with constraints on the use of cash.” It is the abolition of easily stored cash that allows a central bank to impose negative interest rates, not the introduction of CBDC in either form.

The IMF note acknowledges a case for stronger payments privacy:

There are legitimate reasons people may prefer at least some degree of anonymity—potentially when it comes to everyone except the government, and regarding the government unless a court order unlocks encrypted transaction information. It is a way to avoid customer profiling—commercial use of personal information, for example, to charge higher mortgage rates to people who purchase alcohol. Another advantage of anonymity is limiting exposure to hacking. Moreover, anonymity is often associated with privacy—widely recognized as a human right (as stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights [Article 12] and elsewhere).

The note also observes that a central bank offering retail deposits “could increase risks to financial intermediation. It would raise funding costs for deposit-taking institutions.”

Just as importantly on the minus side, although not mentioned in either Lagarde’s speech or the IMF staff note, is that diverting deposits from commercial banks to the central bank will shrink the funding for the economic-growth-enhancing small business loans that commercial banks provide, in favor of central bank holdings of sovereign debts and government-favored private securities (for the Fed at present, mortgage-backed securities).[4] The IMF authors of the note observe that in a world where CBDC accounts replace both currency and ordinary checking deposits “only the commercial bank could create money.” Correspondingly, in a world of CBDC alone, only the central bank would direct the loanable funds marshalled by checking deposits.


[1] Bordo and Levin (2017) have suggested that private commercial banks should provide the front end for access to the central bank’s balance sheet, because they are better at customer service. Designated “digital cash” account balances at commercial banks would differ from ordinary account balances only in that balance transfers between accounts would be nearly instantly settled. Near-instant settlement would be enabled by the commercial banks holding “segregated reserve accounts” at the central bank, linked to their customers digital cash accounts, and presumably backed by high or even 100-percent, reserves. Under their proposal commercial banks would act as so many central bank branch agencies. Their proposed system would have all the same drawbacks of outright CBDC accounts discussed herein.

[2] Under the Right to Financial Privacy Act of 1978, a bank or other financial institution is protected from customer lawsuits for disclosing customer account information to a US federal agency (BATF, DEA, FBI, IRS, etc.) that subpoenas it in connection with suspected illegal activity. The agency is required only to notify an individual customer (but not a business customer) of the request, giving the customer ten days to seek legal redress. In court the agency does not need to meet the Fourth Amendment standard of probable cause. Under later statutes including the Patriot Act, notice is not required where the individual is suspected of drug trafficking, espionage, or terrorism. In a recent law review article, W. F. McElroy notes that today “the privacy of financial records from unwarranted government intrusion is under siege.”

          В Лихтенштейне идёт работа над проектом закона о блокчейне и токенах      Cache   Translate Page      

22 ноября 2018 года швейцарский специалист по блокчейн-технологиям Йорн Эрбгут (Jörn Erbguth) проинформировал коллег по рабочей группе Международного союза электросвязи (МСЭ - International Telecommunications Union, ITU) о том, что в княжестве Лихтенштейн полным ходом идёт подготовка закона, регламентирующего использование токенов в блочейн-системах, отметив, что, насколько ему известно, «это первый закон, регламентирующий связанные с токенами права собственности».

Соответствующая информация выложена на сайте Cryptoplace.li по адресу https://www.cryptoplace.li/consultation-report-and-draft-law-on-transaction-systems-based-on-trustworthy-technologies-blockchain-act/ . В частности, на английском доступен 170-страничный неофициальный перевод «Отчета правительства, подготовленный к публичному обсуждению проекта закона, и проект закона о транзакционных системах, основанных на заслуживающих доверия технологиях (Закон о блокчейне)» (Unofficial Translation of the Government Consultation Report and the Draft-Law on Transaction Systems Based on Trustworthy Technologies (Blockchain Act), http://www.regierung.li/media/attachments/VNB-Blockchain-Gesetz-en-full-clean.pdf?t=636766638054672122 ). Те же материалы на немецком языке доступны по адресу https://www.cryptoplace.li/vernehmlassungsbericht-ueber-das-blockchain-gesetz-liechtenstein/ (немецкое название документа «Vernehmlassungsbericht der Regierung betreffend die Schaffung eines Gesetzes über auf vertrauenswürdigen Technologien (VT) beruhende Transaktionssysteme (Blockchain-Gesetz; VT-Gesetz; VTG und die Abänderung weiterer Gesetze», официальной является именно эта версия).

Публичное обсуждение закончилось совсем недавно, 16 ноября 2018 года.

Я с большим интересом познакомилась с этим проектом закона, и предлагаю Вам ряд «выжимок» из него.

В резюме отчета правительства, в частности, отмечается следующее:
«Ширящееся распространение блокчейн-приложений уже выявило ряд проблемных областей, такие, как открытые вопросы, связанные с защитой клиентов и активов, а также злоупотребление возможностями этой технологии для отмывания денег или для других преступных целей. Такие проблемы следует решать с помощью четкого нормативно-правового регулирования. Поскольку технология блокчейна активно используется в Лихтенштейне, правительство намерено использовать предлагаемый закон для разъяснения требований, применимых к ответственным видам деятельности в блокчейн-системах, в целях улучшения защиты клиентов и снижения потенциальных репутационных рисков для Лихтенштейна.

Кроме того, в настоящее время существует правовая неопределенность в отношении бизнес-моделей на основе применения TT-систем (от Trustworthy Technologies – термин, используемый вместо термина «блокчейн» для обеспечения определенной технологической нейтральности, особенно в отношении иных нарождающихся технологий – Н.Х.), которые не подпадают под действие законодательства о финансовых рынках, но при этом связаны с деятельностью, которая очень похожа на деятельность в финансовом секторе. Посредством принятия «Закона о блокчейне» правительство стремится установить минимальные требования к этим видам деятельности в TT-системах и провести регистрацию таки систем национальным регулятором финансовых рынков (Financial Market Authority, FMA).

Ещё одни вопросом, находящимся в центре внимания данного законопроекта, является правовая классификация элементов ТТ-систем. С помощью понятия «токен» «Закон о блокчейне» вводит новую конструкцию, позволяющую обеспечить юридически надёжным образом отображение «реального мира» в TT-системах и, таким образом, задействовать весь потенциал токен-экономики. Введение «токена» как правовой конструкции в законодательство Лихтенштейна влечёт за собой необходимость также определить другие правовые аспекты, такие, как право собственности, владение и передача токенов.

Чтобы иметь возможность изменить форму представления ценных бумаг с физических сертификатов на токены в TT-системе, в законодательство Лихтенштейна будет введена правовая концепция «бездокументарных прав» (uncertificated rights) и одновременно обеспечена согласованность между законодательством о ценных бумагах и «Законом о блокчейне». Бездокументарными правами являются трансформированные в электронную форму ценные бумаги, которые не выдаются на руки в виде сертификатов, а регистрируются в электронных реестрах.

Помимо этого, «Закон о блокчейне» устанавливает минимальные требования к TT-системе с целью повысить эффективность экономики токенов посредством, создания и укрепления доверия между пользователями.»
Относительно нового термина «ТТ-система» сказано следующее:
«С учётом быстрых темпов развития технологии блокчейна (и «распределённых реестров», это также очень популярный сейчас термин – Н.Х.) и расширения сферы её применения, очень важно разработать закон на достаточно высоком уровне абстракции с тем, чтобы он оставался применимым в отношении последующих поколений технологий. Именно поэтому в данном законе вместо термина «блокчейн-системы» используется термин «транзакционные системы, основанные на заслуживающих доверия технологиях (ТТ-системы)».
Проект «Закона о транзакционных система, основанных на заслуживающих доверия технологиях» (Blockchain Act; TT-Act; VTG)

Целью настоящего Закона является защита пользователей TT-системах и обеспечение их доверия к электронным правам. Он регламентирует регистрацию и надзор, а также права и обязанности поставщиков услуг, которые осуществляют деятельность в TT-системах (Преамбула).

Настоящий Закон применим в отношении поставщиков TT-услуг (ст. 2). Закон не применим в отношении:
  • Государственных органов, муниципальных властей и/или ассоциаций муниципальных органов власти, когда они действуют в качестве органов власти; а также

  • ТТ-систем, доступные только для закрытой группы пользователей (ст.4).
Под «заслуживающими доверия технологиями» в рамках настоящего Закона понимаются технологии, которые обеспечивают целостность токенов и их бесспорное закрепление за владельцами, которые имеют возможность распоряжаться ими без содействия оператора.
В то же время эти технологии функционируют в роли оператора, отвечающего за качество и целостность. (ст.3)

Если законодательство Лихтенштейна применимо в соответствии со статьей 11, то токены рассматриваются в качестве актива, находящегося в Лихтенштейне (ст.12).

Определения (статья 5) включают, в том числе, следующие:
  • «Токен»: информация в TT-системе, которая может воплощать взаимозаменяемые требования (fungible claims) или права членства в отношении отдельных лиц, товаров и/или других абсолютных или относительных прав, и обеспечивают взаимосвязь с одним или несколькими открытыми ключами;

  • «ТТ-системы»: транзакционные системы, обеспечивающие безопасный обмен и безопасное хранение цифровых представлений прав, а также оказание на основе этих систем услуг с применением заслуживающих доверия технологий в соответствии со ст.3.

  • «Поставщик TT-услуг»: лицо, осуществляющее один или несколько видов деятельности, перечисленных в пп. (8) - (16).

    Мой комментарий: В числе видов деятельности далее названы:

    • «Эмитент токенов»,

    • «Генератор токенов»,

    • «ТТ-депозитарий» (лицо, предоставляющее третьим сторонам услуги депозитарного хранения закрытых ключей в TT-системах),

    • «Физический валидатор»,

    • «TT-доверенный хранитель» (лицо, которое держит токены в TT-системах на собственное имя по поручению третьих сторон),

    • «ТТ-оператор пункта обмена»,

    • «ТТ-орган проверки»,

    • «ТТ-поставщик ценовой информации»,

    • «ТТ-поставщик услуг идентификации».
Держатель закрытого ключа имеет возможность распорядиться токеном. Кроме того, предполагается, что лицо, имеющее подобную возможность, также имеет право распоряжаться токеном (ст.6).

Распоряжение токеном, совершенное лицом, обладающим правом распоряжаться токеном, приводит к распоряжению тем правом, воплощением которого является токен (ст. 7).

Для признания распоряжения токенами законным требуется (статья 8):
  • Распоряжение в соответствии с правилами ТТ-системы;

  • Декларация передающей и получающей сторон о желании соответственно передать и получить право распоряжаться токеном; а также

  • Право передающего лица распоряжаться токеном в случае, если требования ст.10 о добросовестном распоряжении не выполняются.
В статье 9 «Легитимизация» говорится следующее:
«Если токен символизирует право требования или членства, то лицо, уполномоченное распоряжаться токеном на «взявшее на себя обязательство лицо» считается законным обладателем этого права. Посредством платежа, взявшее на себя обязательство лицо (например, должник – Н.Х.) освобождается от своего обязательства перед лицом, имеющим право распоряжаться токеном, за исключением тех случаев, когда должник знал или должен был, при проявлении надлежащей предусмотрительности, знать, что получатель платежа не являлся законным владельцем права.»
В статье «Право добросовестного распоряжения» отмечается:
«Любому, кому право распоряжаться токенами предоставляется за вознаграждение в соответствии с правилами системы, предоставляется защита его права распоряжаться даже в том случае, если передавшее ему токен лицо не было авторизовано распоряжаться этим токеном, за исключением случая, когда получатель токена знал или, проявляя должную предусмотрительность, должен был знать, что передавшая ему токен сторона на была авторизована распорядиться эти токеном.»
Целый ряд статей законопроекта (ст.ст. 13-22) содержат требования к различного рода поставщикам ТТ-услуг.

В завершение этого обзора я с удовольствием процитирую близкую моему сердцу ст.26 «Сроки хранения» (пункт 1):
«Поставщик TT-услуг должен хранить документы и поддерживающую документацию, относящиеся к целям настоящего Закона, в течение как минимум десяти лет

Pedro Augusto Pinho

Para o jovem professor universitário, colunista de jornais cariocas, estudante de pós-graduação, o movimento de maio de 1968, na França, pareceu uma questão de poder, pelas ambições de uma geração que não queria apenas repetir o que seus pais já haviam conquistado. Com a distância destes 50 anos, entendo ser uma manobra que os Estados Unidos da América (EUA), com problema da impopular guerra no Vietnã e das drogas, consumidas pelas suas gerações destinadas ao Poder, enfrentavam com a grande difusora cultural - França - conduzida pelo líder nacionalista Charles De Gaulle, que trocava notas de dólar por ouro.

A Era do Aquário foi o momento que, com a primeira crise do petróleo, os EUA iniciam a cooptação dos árabes (Arábia Saudita), para ter no dólar sua única moeda nas transações internacionais. Começava a substituição do dólar/ouro e o fim do Acordo de Bretton Woods.

Portanto, sem querer ver fantasmas, os movimentos na França, nos EUA, na Inglaterra poderiam ter o pano de fundo da luta do capital financeiro contra o capital industrial. De certo modo, esta compreensão está também em Jessé Souza. Transcrevo:

“Os capitalistas viam-se diante de algo novo e verdadeiramente revolucionário, um movimento cujo suporte social eram seus próprios filhos bem-educados. O objetivo da revolução expressivista era redefinir os fins da vida social e modificar por dentro o uso do poder”, e adiante “O que explica em grande medida o êxito do capitalismo financeiro é o fato de ele ter conseguido engolir o protesto expressivista e depois regurgitá-lo segundo seus próprios termos” (A classe média no espelho, Estação Brasil, 2018).

No Brasil foi um momento de virada. A política da “austeridade”, implantada por  Castello Branco, passou para “economia heterodoxa”. E, em 1968, apresentava seu resultado satisfatório com o crescimento de 14% no setor industrial. No mundo político, este afrouxamento econômico teve a contrapartida do enrijecimento, com o Ato Institucional nº 5.

Mas o Brasil estava longe da eficiência industrial dos países centrais. Coube aos militares, de Costa e Silva a Geisel, tentar implantar a estrutura tecnoburocrática, weberina, de impessoalidade e assepsia administrativa. Cometeram o erro de todos, ou a maldade de alguns, de implementar mudanças de conteúdo a partir da cúpula.

Recordo, nas aulas de administração, a comparação dos processos decisórios nos EUA e no Japão. Os primeiros centralizavam em poucos dirigentes esta condição e a decisão era quase imediata. Depois passava-se longo tempo explicando e ensinando a toda estrutura da empresa como deveria agir e corrigindo os erros de entendimento. No Japão, o processo decisório começava na base da estrutura. Ia ganhando consenso e esclarecimento. Ao chegar à alta administração, toda empresa já sabia como agir. Bastava a decisão e, de imediato, estava implementada.

1968, no Brasil, ficou mais marcado pela Passeata dos Cem Mil do que qualquer outra manifestação de classe média. As questões que tomavam conta do norte - A Galaxia de Gutenberg (1962) com as icônicas expressões “aldeia global” e “o meio é a mensagem”, de Marshall McLuhan; “O Espírito do Tempo” (a cultura de massa), também de 1962, de Edgar Morin; “O uso humano de seres humanos” (Cybernetics and Society, 1950) de Norbert Wiener, e a imensa obra que já discutia as implicações da teoria da informação (Abraham Moles, J. R.Pierce, Ross Ashby etc) - estavam afastadas das academias e das edições nacionais.

Na minha avaliação, a relevância nacional, deste período, foi a segunda tentativa - a primeira foi de Vargas - de construir o Estado Nacional Brasileiro.

Passou meio século. A banca (sistema financeiro) reina sobre o norte e o sul. Domina o processo produtivo, não para dotá-lo de eficiência, mas para transferir para o financismo, o rentismo, os seus ganhos. E destrói os Estados Nacionais. Volto a Jessé Souza, na referida obra: “Na esfera política, esse domínio (do capital financeiro) se reflete no parcial desmonte do Estado social pelo enfraquecimento de sua base, ou seja, de sua capacidade de cobrar impostos. Controlado por grandes bancos e fundos de investimento, o capital financeiro consegue sonegar impostos em escala planetária, fazendo do Estado cobrador de impostos um Estado acumulador de dívidas. Incapaz de cobrar impostos dos mais ricos, o Estado é obrigado a pedir emprestado aos próprios capitalistas, e ainda acrescido de juros, o que antes recebia como imposto devido. Esse é o real sentido da globalização”.

O que ocorre com os gilets jaunes (coletes amarelos)? Quem produziu e sustenta esta manifestação “espontânea”?

Não mais um jovem recém-formado, mas um avô aposentado, procura também uma resposta.

Em algum artigo recente, observei que a propriedade fora mudada nos empreendimentos privados. Não mais tínhamos os nomes de importantes membros da sociedade e da política, como os Rockefeller por quase um século. Hoje temos um CEO (Chief Executive Officer), nem mesmo um Presidente, na condução dos negócios. E quem o designa? Um fundo de investimento, ou um conjunto de fundos de investimentos, de anônimos e dispersos investidores. Em grande parte com residência em paraísos fiscais e, em não poucas vezes, representando ilícitas origens (drogas, contrabandos, corrupções, dinheiros lavados).

No Monitor Mercantil, sexta-feira, 23/11/2018, na coluna Acredite se Puder, Nelson Priori, sob o título “Registros falsos para financiar indústria da maconha” escreve: “A Paragon Coin Inc., uma entidade online, levantou aproximadamente US$ 12 milhões para desenvolver e implementar seu plano de negócios para adicionar tecnologia de blockchain à indústria de cannabis e trabalhar para a legalização da cannabis. Nem a Airfox nem a Paragon registraram suas ICOs de acordo com as leis federais de valores mobiliários, nem se qualificaram para uma isenção dos requisitos de registro”, na Securities and Exchange Comission (SEC).

Para este ambiente neoliberal internacional não encontramos uma oposição articulada, um discurso efetivo. Não há esquerda ou direita, todos se ajoelham diante da banca, diante dos seus ilícitos. E ainda usam o farsante discurso moralista. Jessé Souza escreve: “A ascensão do PT ao poder de Estado .... ainda que tenha desenvolvido políticas sociais fundamentais em um país de desigualdade tão perversa, o fez sem qualquer discurso articulado acerca do que estava fazendo. Não havia a narrativa deliberada de um projeto nacional alternativo ao projeto liberal antipopular”. Ao que acrescento, nem buscou apurar os ilícitos cometidos pela banca, nem mesmo em governos anteriores.

Voltemos aos coletes amarelos.

Emmanuel Macron, como se sabe, saiu do Banco Rothschild para a administração do Estado Francês, pelas mãos socialistas. Como esperado seu governo já provocou mais desemprego, menos salários, menos presença do Estado.

Esta agressão ao povo, no Brasil, atinge diretamente a classe mais despossuída. Mas na França atinge parcela da classe média. Também a classe industrial, derrotada desde os anos 1980, mais ainda não sepultada, sentiu um certo alento com a política econômica de Donald Trump.

Recentemente, Angela Merkel anunciou, após a derrota de sua coalisão na Bavária, que não disputaria sua permanência na liderança do CDU. Estaria cedendo ao industrialismo, que gera produção, emprego e renda?

É cedo, mas há, além da violência da fome, a presença de novos atores religiosos, os neopentecostais. Todo este caldo está sendo canalizado nestes movimentos franceses, belgas e germânicos.

Desde o período pré-eleitoral tenho escrito que o debate deveria ser a banca contra o nacionalismo. Volto a Jessé Souza: “Como no capitalismo financeiro em todo o mundo, a defesa abstrata de direitos difusos e das minorias toma o lugar da efetiva distribuição de riqueza e poder. FHC é, assim, a República Velha repaginada pelo discurso pseudoemancipador do capital financeiro, e com o charminho parisiense, livre-pensante, de sua origem uspiana. A visão liberal-chique - da qual o Ministro Barroso, do Supremo Tribunal Federal, é, hoje, um dos arautos - combina uma postura avançada na esfera dos costumes com uma posição conservadora na política social e econômica”.

Não sei como será na França. Mas no Brasil, a chegada de militares ao Poder pode refundar o Estado Nacional Brasileiro. Assim propunham os tenentes dos anos 1920. E, como escreve Jessé, voltamos com Dilma e Temer à República Velha.

Se vorbește tot mai des despre o nouă revoluție industrială, denumită și Revoluția 4.0, care se preconizează a fi diferită de cele anterioare (având în vedere că afectează companiile din toate sectoarele), revoluție la sfârșitul căreia companiile vizate vor deveni adevărate întreprinderi digitale, prin transformarea integrală a sistemelor de producție și/sau management. Pe lângă plusurile inerente acestei revoluții, observăm apariția unei noi probleme, anume incapacitatea statelor de a ține pasul cu reglementarea noilor tehnologii, problemă semnalată și de fondatorul și președintele Forumului Economic Mondial, Klaus Schwab, în cartea sa - The Fourth Industrial Revolution.

SOLUCIONES TECNOLOGÍA Y SERVICIOS S.A – STS CELEBRA SU DÉCIMO ANIVERSARIO

La presencia de fabricantes mayorista y socios de negocio, necesarios para ser competitivos en el mercado, ha sido un factor fundamental y estratégico para la compañía a lo largo de estos 10 años

La integración de soluciones de tecnología y servicios es el core de negocio de STS S.A. compañía colombiana, que este año celebra su 10° Aniversario. Durante este tiempo ha alcanzado el objetivo de implementar soluciones de integración del más alto nivel, desarrollando proyectos en diferentes sectores de la industria, teniendo como prioridad, atender y resolver las necesidades reales de sus clientes.


El interés de aliarse con los  mejores fabricantes de TI existentes en el país, ha hecho de STS una compañía sostenible, que desde su primer año de operación (2008) realizó el proceso de integración  al ecosistema de canales de IBM por medio de la presentación del plan de negocios correspondiente. Esto le permitió adquirir en corto tiempo  la membresía de Canal Premier que era la de mayor relevancia en este fabricante, respaldada particularmente en certificaciones comerciales y técnicas de los productos representados.  

Holística IT, compañía perteneciente al grupo empresarial, fue creada en el año 2009 como la encargada de la operación de servicios para todos los clientes de STS, siguiendo los lineamientos estratégicos enfocados en fortalecer sus habilidades corporativas a partir del conocimiento.

Socios de negocio, pieza clave para la estrategia de crecimiento y posicionamiento

Para Mauricio Amaya Amezquita y Alfredo Correa Riveros, Gerentes General y comercial, respectivamente, uno de los retos más importantes para mantenerse y seguir creciendo en el mercado, es enfrentar los cambios significativos que a diario se presentan en la industria tecnológica. Por esta razón, su enfoque siempre estuvo en el desarrollo de estrategias que les permitieran  incluir a los fabricantes más importantes de tecnología en su portafolio, construyendo así una amplia oferta de productos y servicios para sus clientes y definiendo a STS como integrador de soluciones de TI.

STS cuenta con la representación de marcas como IBM, Lenovo, HPE, Oracle, VMware, Fortinet, Huawei y Check Point, entre otros. Para este fin, se desarrollaron planes que incluyen certificaciones comerciales, técnicas y de implementación, además de generar un compromiso frente al monto de ventas anual con cada una de ellas. Esto le ha permitido a la compañía entregar a sus clientes, diferentes tipos de soluciones y servicios en ambientes core del negocio, en procesamiento, almacenamiento, backup, virtualización, hiperconvergencia, seguridad y cloud.

“Todo este trabajo ha hecho que la compañía mantenga un crecimiento constante durante sus diez (10) años y alcance diferentes e importantes reconocimientos con cada uno de sus fabricantes, mayoristas y socios de negocios”, afirmó Mauricio Amaya Amezquita - Gerente General de STS - Soluciones Tecnología y Servicios S.A.

2019, otro año para seguir creciendo

La tasa actual de comoditización de productos/servicios de IT, la modificación de ciclo de venta y la ampliación de las alternativas de los usuarios finales, están influyendo en el ritmo de crecimiento de la Compañía, por lo tanto, se hace imperativo continuar el proceso de transformación empresarial enfocado en el conocimiento y mejoramiento de las competencias de la organización, los cambios del mercado y las tendencias de la industria de TI.

En el año 2018 STS se reinventa como grupo empresarial, que ahora integra dos nuevas compañías, DATASEC, especializada en servicios de Seguridad informática y Epíst3micaenfocada en soluciones de IA y Blockchain con las cuales se espera apoyar el desarrollo de soluciones focalizadas en la generación de valor a los clientes.

New platform releases from ONAP (Casablanca) and OPNFV (Gambia) bring additional support for cross-stack deployments across new and existing use cases such as 5G and Cross-Carrier VPN (CCVPN), as well as enhancements to cloud-native VPN. Additionally, the organization’s compliance and verification program recently announced its expansion into virtual network functions (VNF) testing and is now recruiting Beta participants. VNF testing will help ease deployment pains and improve VNF quality and interoperability across real-world deployments.
    “New and enhanced deployments of our platforms are popping up every day across the globe, and with tighter cross-community integration and an expanded compliance and verification program, we are well-positioned to facilitate innovative industry progress,” said Arpit Joshipura, general manager, networking, the Linux Foundation. “The latest releases of ONAP and OPNFV usher in a new era for LFN as the community continues to foster an expanding commercial ecosystem.”

  • 2019 telecoms forecast: the year of 5G and open source

    2019 is shaping up to be a massive year for telco companies. In the final few months of 2018, countless 5G projects have launched and several new uses cases in cloud computing and IoT have come to light, driving demand for high capacity and low latency connectivity.

    As a result of the monetisation challenges, there has been a distinct move away from just providing faster network speeds to consumers, and towards enabling a whole host of new technologies on mobile networks. To achieve this, an increasing number of telecoms operators are functioning like software companies.

  • AI in 2019: 8 trends to watch

    “Today, more leading-edge software development occurs inside open source communities than ever before, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for proprietary projects to keep up with the rapid pace of development that open source offers,” says Ibrahim Haddad, director of research at The Linux Foundation, which includes the LF Deep Learning Foundation. “AI is no different and is becoming dominated by open source software that brings together multiple collaborators and organizations.”

    In particular, Haddad expects more cutting-edge technology companies and early adopters to open source their internal AI work to catalyze the next waves of development, not unlike how Google spun Kubernetes out from an internal system to an open source project.

    “We foresee more companies open sourcing their internal AI stacks in order to build communities around those projects,” Haddad says. “This will enable companies and communities to harmonize across a set of critical projects that together will create a comprehensive open source stack in the AI, machine learning, and deep learning space. Large companies that were the first to take their AI efforts open source are already seeing early mover advantages, and we expect this to increase.”

Hi Mark,

I agree with you re growth. My view is that there are too many people in the profession for the amount of work. Both attorneys and support staff. I think it is even worse in NZ where the Australian firms can file direct and patent filings are declining anyway.

My idea was not to create extra capacity but to increase productivity and hence drive the bottom line up. I have real experience doing this one of the firms and their profitability was/is way beyond the numbers mentioned in your article.

You make those mechanical transactions mechanical. Your systems to the work in a fraction of time and you better manage the risk. You can service the client better by responding faster. A low cost transaction gives you the ability to be flexible on pricing if needed. You create a cash cow. That gives you power to grow.

You then apply the same to geographic locations and effectively be the franchisee. The McDonalds of patent attorneys lol. Then take over the world.

As a technologist I would also love to throw some AI guys at drafting species and see what they could do to assist that process.

Then I would strip out the renewals function of all the firms, automate it properly and use that as the basis of building a renewals business like CPA, CPI etc.. and build in customer self service as much as possible.

I won't even mention blockchain. In fact I really won't mention it because I don't really understand its applicability to law!

In general it just feels like same old, same old to me. Fascinating to watch though.

Stephen.

          "Como consumidores no estamos concienciados del problema que supone la falsificación y el riesgo que puede suponer para nuestra salud"      Cache   Translate Page      

Vestigia es una plataforma digital basada en la tecnología Blockchain que permite controlar y evitar que se falsifiquen productos. José Manuel Avelino y Jorge Pérez empezaron a trabajar hace un año con la misión de desarrollar plataformas digitales distribuidas que ayuden a las empresas a controlar y proteger sus productos, preservar su imagen de marca y a conocer mejor a sus clientes. Su intención también era proporcionar a los consumidores herramientas de software fácil de usar, que les permitan tener toda la información sobre los productos y adquirirlos de forma segura para evitar así las falsificaciones. 

El equipo está conformado conforman por profesionales con más de 20 años de experiencia en tecnología e industria, y, Jóse y Jorge aseguran que les "apasiona contribuir al cambio digital que se está produciendo en las empresas en estos momentos y, sobre todo, a evitar el tremendo problema que supone las falsificaciones de productos para consumidores y empresas". La compañía ha ido reclutando a su equipo en base a su filosofía, y esta es compartir una visión "ambiciosa pero a la vez motivadora de qué tipo de problemas pretendemos resolver". Esto es lo fundamental porque para ellos, "el resto es mucho más fácil".

Vestigia ha creado una plataforma con Blockchain que ayuda de forma fácil y segura a todo tipo de empresas a controlar y trazar productos, en tiempo real, conectando todos sus elementos "IoT" y sin tener que cambiar su software de gestión. Por otra parte, los usuarios, mediante una app intuitiva, pueden en cualquier momento y cualquier lugar, comprobar de manera inalámbrica la autenticidad de los productos y toda la información relativa a su fabricación, distribución y venta mediante nuestra etiqueta inteligente in-copiable.

¿Por qué es tan importan evitar la falsificación de productos?

La falsificación de productos es un problema global a resolver urgentemente.

Por un lado, provoca un tremendo problema de seguridad a los consumidores, ya que en productos alimenticios, farmacéuticos o cosméticos, por ejemplo, pueden poner en peligro la salud de las personas que los adquirimos a través de los canales de venta habituales, pensando que estos son originales. A modo de ejemplo, recientemente se han analizado muestras de perfumes falsificados detectándose un alto contenido de etilenglicol, una sustancia prohibida que se utiliza en los anticongelantes y que puede producir irritación o erupciones en la piel.

Por otro lado, impacta gravemente a las empresas, ya no solo por el prestigio o imagen de su marca o producto, sino por la tremenda destrucción de empleo que la falsificación supone. Para reflejar la magnitud del problema y su consecuencias sociales, según datos de la EUIPO entregados a Forbes, muestran que solo en la España se destruyen más de 50.000 empleos en el sector de la ropa, calzado y complementos. Si miramos hacia la Unión Europea, la cifra alcanza los 380 mil empleos y unas pérdidas económicas de más de 29 mil millones de euros, según datos del sector.

¿Creéis que la sociedad está concienciada en este sentido? ¿Cuál es el método para educar sobre la falsificación?

Pensamos que no estamos, como consumidores, totalmente concienciados del problema que supone la falsificación de productos y sobre todo el riesgo que puede suponer para nuestra salud. Crear productos de calidad y seguros, hablando del sector agroalimentario en el que se ve más claro, es una tarea que supone mucho esfuerzo a proveedores, productores, distribuidores y puntos de venta; que hacen las cosas bien y se comprometen con sus clientes a mejorar cada día.

La educación en este aspecto es fundamental, en primer lugar, debemos comprender que comprar un producto falsificado tiene riesgos, puesto que no hay garantías de que se respeten las condiciones mínimas de calidad y seguridad en su fabricación. ¿Se imagina ver jugando a sus hijos con productos falsificados que no cumplen con la normativa respecto a la seguridad? En segundo lugar, a pesar de los esfuerzos policiales y de organismos gubernamentales en la lucha contra el fraude, como consumidores debemos de tener herramientas a nuestro alcance para poder detectar y decidir no comprar productos falsificados. En este aspecto es en el que estamos trabajando en Vestigia. Nuestra tecnología nos permite como consumidores verificar de forma muy sencilla si el producto es original, en cualquier sitio y en cualquier momento.

¿Por qué decidisteis aplicar el blockchain a vuestra solución?

Blockchain es una tecnología revolucionaria que será aplicada en muchos sectores, para hacer cosas muy diversas. En Vestigia nos hemos centrado en su aplicación para resolver los problemas de control, trazabilidad y anti-falsificación de productos. Una de las razones principales por las que hemos elegido Blockchain es la seguridad que ofrece, los datos que almacenamos en nuestra plataforma basada en esta tecnología no se pueden modificar, adulterar o borrar. Por lo tanto, hemos creado una plataforma en la que la historia de los productos no puede ser modificada ni por los productores, distribuidores, puntos de venta o un tercero malicioso. Conocemos la tecnología Blockchain y sabemos aplicarla.

¿Cómo funcionáis exactamente?

Somos una empresa que ofrece soluciones a empresas, con una tecnología propia, como ya hemos comentado, basada en Blockchain. Entregamos a nuestros clientes una tecnología fácil, segura y accesible, que les permite controlar, preservar y demostrar a sus clientes la procedencia y la calidad de sus productos, simplificando sus procesos de trazabilidad. Del mismo modo, a través de nuestra plataforma nuestro clientes pueden certificar la trazabilidad de sus productos frente a terceros u organismos reguladores.

Técnicamente, nuestra plataforma funciona como un 'notario digital', que cumple dos funciones que son independientes pero complementarias.

Por un lado, permite que las empresas puedan ir registrando y controlando, en tiempo real, qué está pasando con sus productos. Conectamos todo el proceso, desde la llegada de las materias primas hasta la comercialización, sin tener que cambiar su software y conectando todos los elementos de IoT de forma muy sencilla.

Esta información queda almacenada en nuestra plataforma de forma segura y certificada, usando criptografía y Blockchain. Mediante esta, organismos reguladores y consumidores finales pueden comprobar la historia de un producto, teniendo la tranquilidad que no ha podido ser manipulada o alterada.

La otra función de nuestra plataforma es la de asegurar que un producto es original, no solo es relevante conocer la historia de un producto para asegurar que llega en las condiciones adecuadas a los consumidores, sino también impedir que se vendan productos falsificados como originales por los canales de distribución habituales. Mediante nuestra etiqueta inteligente 'in-copiable', las marcas protegen su producto y los usuarios verifican que su autenticidad mediante una app.

Debido a la característica de informática distribuida, facilidad de interconexión y al diseño escalable de nuestra plataforma, podemos actuar en cualquier ámbito, podemos afrontar soluciones en local y hacerlas crecer hasta el ámbito internacional y viceversa.

Ofrecéis servicios tanto a consumidores como a empresas, ¿cuál es el perfil de cada uno y cómo les ayudáis?

Nuestra plataforma es aplicable a cualquier tipo y tamaño de empresa, ya que no es necesario cambiar el software de gestión que ya utilizan, conectamos los elementos IoT que ya integrados y proponemos un sistema de pago por uso.

Desde el primer momento hemos creado una tecnología fácil, flexible y escalable. Nuestra preocupación es resolver el problema, sin que nuestros clientes tengan que preocuparse de cambiar sus sistemas informáticos, realizar mantenimiento de infraestructuras tecnológicas o contar con equipos de expertos.

Damos soporte tecnológico desde el principio, ayudamos a automatizar los procesos, buscamos la mejor solución aprovechando lo existente y nos ocupamos de la operación. Nuestros clientes solo tienen que preocuparse de lo más importante, su negocio. 

¿En qué sectores habéis implantado vuestro producto?

Hemos comenzado por el sector gourmet, el farmacéutico y el de moda y complementos, en los que ya están utilizando nuestra solución de trazabilidad y gestión de la cadena logística con mucho éxito.

¿Qué nuevas funcionalidades os gustaría desarrollar en un futuro? ¿En qué otros aspectos se puede aplicar vuestra tecnología?

Tenemos pruebas de concepto en la industria y en el sector agroalimentario desarrollando nuevas prestaciones que resuelven problemas que antes eran impensables o poco rentables.

Estamos trabajando en cuestiones de identidad digital y SmartCities. Esperamos ayudar a hacer la vida más fácil en la ciudad.

Recientemente habéis ganado el primer Open Call de Innovación de Alastria, ¿qué ha supuesto para vosotros?

Ganar el primer Open Call de Innovación organizado por Alastria, como mejor prototipo al reto presentado en el Ecosistema de Andalucía, ha supuesto para nosotros un reconocimiento muy importante, a nuestra tecnología y a nuestro esfuerzo por innovar. Alastria es un consorcio de empresas, de la que somos socios, que pretende crear un Ecosistema Blockchain Nacional en la que están participando las empresas de primera línea y más innovadoras de nuestro país.

También contáis con el apoyo del Programa Minerva, ¿qué es lo que destacaríais de esta colaboración?

El apoyo del Programa Minerva, está siendo fundamental para nosotros, nos están ayudando a mejorar e ir más rápidos en aspectos fundamentales como la comunicación, modelo de negocio y a formar parte del ecosistema emprendedor. Es un programa exigente y de una altísima calidad. Nosotros estamos muy orgullosos de ser un proyecto acelerado por Minerva y de contar con el respaldo de Vodafone y la Junta de Andalucía.

¿Cuáles son vuestros objetivos a partir de ahora?

Con respecto a nuestros planes, tenemos la visión de convertir la tecnología de autentificación y control de Vestigia en un referente para empresas y consumidores de todo el mundo, por preservar la seguridad de las personas y por contribuir a la mejora de la imagen de marca de las empresas.

Nuestra misión es clara, desarrollar plataformas digitales seguras que controlen y protejan los productos, la imagen y la marca de las empresas, y les ayude a conocer mejor a sus clientes. Y, además, proporcionar tecnología intuitiva a los consumidores que les permita conocer de forma más fiables los productos que compran.

Graphite, una alternativa a Google Docs descentralizada, cifrada y basada en blockchain#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Alternativas a Microsoft Office no faltan, pero cuando hablamos de elegir un editor de documentos online, la mayoría prefieren Google Docs, incluso cuando existe el mismo Office Online. Sin embargo, una opción poco conocida y que quizás te interese probar es un servicio como Graphite.

Graphite ofrece una alternativa descentralizada y cifrada, es uno de los primeros software basados en blockchain que te permite utilizar aplicaciones para crear documentos y compartirlos. Si usas Graphite tus documentos nunca se almacenarán en los servidores de una empresa como Google o Microsoft.

Es por ello que esta opción es sumamente recomendada para aquellos que buscan un servicio que les permita ser dueños de sus datos al 100%. Si te preguntas cómo es esto posible, es gracias a la tecnología de Blockstack.

Cómo funciona

Sharing 3781fb02

Graphite nunca almacena tu identidad ni tus datos porque utiliza la tecnología open source de Blockstack para ofrecer un servicio basado en blockchain. Esto quiere decir que Graphite puede almacenar tus documentos en tus propios servidores (tu propio ordenador) o en la red descentralizada que usa la cadena de bloques para distribuir datos de forma cifrada, al puro estilo del Bitcoin.

Tus datos siempre son cifrados en tu ordenador antes de que se envíen a cualquier lugar si los quieres compartir. Es cambiar la nube por el blockchain. En ese aspecto funciona como Encrypt My Photos, otro servicio que usa Blockstack para ofrecer almacenamiento cifrado de imágenes.

Para empezar a usarlo debes crear tu cuenta de Blockstack con tu identificador único, si ya tienes uno, solo necesitas tu clave privada para acceder.

Documentos, hojas de cálculo, bóveda de archivos y contactos

Hojas De Calculo Graphite

Graphite es bastante simple y minimalista y funciona muy rápido. Esto puede ser bueno para algunos que están un poco cansados de que las apps de GSuite parezcan cada vez más pesadas, pero también puede ser una desventaja para los que prefieren tener muchas más opciones.

El editor de texto tiene un modo Markdown y un modo de edición tradicional, aunque las opciones de formato son algo limitadas. Además de edición de textos, cuentas con una herramienta de hojas de cálculo, una bóveda para almacenar archivos y un sección para guardar contactos.

Todo lo que crees en Graphite lo puedes compartir con otros contactos de forma simple con cifrado de extremo a extremo. Sin embargo, no existe colaboración en tiempo real en los documentos, ni tampoco cuentan con aplicaciones móviles, aunque están trabajando en ambas cosas desde hace varios meses.

          DOU Проектор: OurSQL – реплікація баз даних MySQL із використанням Blockchain      Cache   Translate Page      

У рубриці DOU Проектор всі охочі можуть презентувати свій продукт (як стартап, так і ламповий pet-проект). Якщо вам є про що розповісти — запрошуємо взяти участь. Якщо ні — можливо, серія надихне на створення власного made in Ukraine продукту. Питання і заявки на участь надсилайте на editors@dou.ua.

Я — Роман Гелемб’юк з Івано-Франківська. Уже більше 17 років займаюся програмуванням. Основні технології — PHP та Golang. Як порядний IT-шник я маю свої pet-проекти. Наразі мене цікавлять децентралізовані бази даних та блокчейн-технології.

Хочу розповісти про свій проект OurSQL. Це, свого роду, розширення MySQL, яке дозволяє створити децентралізовану базу даних без вузлів із «особливими» правами.

Ідея

Спочатку була ідея створити децентралізовану платформу для громадянського суспільства. Щось типу соціальної мережі, але децентралізовану, без «адміна», «власника» і модераторів, із можливостями вести конструктивний діалог, водночас.

Першою прийшла ідея використати блокчейн як базу, але весь механізм виглядав занадто складним. Потім ідея еволюціонувала в більш вузьку — створити універсальну платформу для децентралізованих баз даних. А тоді вже на цій базі можна буде робити все інше, концентруючись лише на бізнес-логіці самої соціальної мережі.

Огляд готових рішень для децентралізованих ДБ не дав результатів, фактично є лише BighainDB (на базі MongoDB). Насправді ж вона не виконує обіцяного, хоч і є розрекламованою та популярною. Слід відзначити проект Hyperledger.org, який у той час видався мені занадто складним для використання. Напевно, для корпорацій він буде найкращим вибором, але не для малих компаній чи одинаків.

Процес розробки

Задача була створити інструмент для реплікації баз SQL-даних повністю децентралізованим способом, без будь-яких master вузлів.

Вибір технології був простим. Поки що єдиним рішенням, яке довело свою ефективність для таких задач, є Blockchain. Тому я почав вивчати цю технологію на прикладі створення криптовалюти. Для розробки я вибрав Golang. Основна причина — я давно хотів отримати реальний досвід на цій мові програмування із великим проектом.

У результаті написав спрощений клон bitcoin на Golang із нуля. Він робочий, хоча підтримувати я його не планую.

Далі на базі коду democoin був створений OurSQL — проксі-сервер MySQL, який фільтрує SQL-запити, перевіряє можливість виконання, конвертує SQL у блокчейн-транзакції, будує блоки (для блокчейну), відправляє блоки та транзакції іншим нодам (іншим серверам OurSQL в межах однієї бази даних) і ті, в свою чергу, роблять відповідні оновлення у своїх локальних копіях MySQL-баз.

Назва OurSQL народилася сама собою. MySQL — для моєї бази даних, а OurSQL — для нашої бази даних. У процесі довелося вивчити протокол MySQL клієнта, детально розібратися у всіх нюансах шифрування та електронних підписів у різних мовах програмування та бібліотеках та інше.

OurSQL = MySQL + Blockchain: як це працює

OurSQL — це окремий сервер, який має два основні компоненти: MySQL проксі-сервер та власне Blockchain-сервер.

Кожен екземпляр OurSQL («нода») працює із єдиною базою MySQL. У цій базі одночасно зберігаються дані разом зі спеціальними таблицями, у яких збережено інформацію про сам блокчейн. SQL-запити надходять через проксі-сервер і далі аналізуються. Якщо це Update запит, відбувається перевірка можливості виконання такого запиту. Ця перевірка відбудеться згідно з правилами консенсусу, які діють у цій базі даних.

Якщо запит може бути виконаний, він виконається, і на основі цього запиту буде побудована транзакція. Далі все відбувається так само, як і в інших блокчейнах.

Нова транзакція додається до «пулу» транзакцій — тимчасового місця зберігання ще не підтверджених транзакцій. Також ця транзакція буде відправлена до всіх інших відомих нодів. Ті, у свою чергу, перевірять її ще раз і виконають. Коли в пулі набереться достатня кількість транзакцій, буде побудовано блок із допомогою правила Proof of Work (так само, як у біткоін). Нода, яка першою побудує блок, надсилає його всім іншим нодам.

Із допомогою OurSQL можна створити базу даних. Проте сама по собі база даних не є дуже корисною. Як і випадку зі звичайними базами даних, потрібен «інтерфейс». Тобто якись додаток, що буде виконувати основну роботу і зберігати потрібні дані в децентралізованій базі даних.

Сам по собі цей додаток може бути створений із будь-якою технологією, яка вміє зберігати дані в MySQL. Це може бути desktop application чи web application, запущений на локальному сервері.

При написанні коду додатка можна зосередитися виключно на бізнес-логіці, не думаючи про особливості синхронізації змін у базі даних. Просто підключаємося до бази через проксі через стандартну MySQL client бібліотеку, яка є в кожній мові програмування, і вносимо необхідні зміни в базу, коли потрібно. Звичайно, зміни мають відповідати логіці децентралізованої мережі та відповідати правилам консенсусу.

Кожен користувач децентралізованої системи повинен отримати свою копію додатка в «пакеті». Цей пакет включає: MySQL-сервер, OurSQL-сервер, конфігураційний файл із описом правил консенсусу і, власне, сам додаток.

Проте можливим є і створення «легких клієнтів». Тобто додатків, які не містять у собі повноцінної ноди, а працюють із одною із доступних віддалених нод. У цьому випадку доведеться з’єднуватися із віддаленою базою даних. Або робити додатковий «шар» у вигляді REST API.

При цьому виконання будь-яких змін вимагає двох кроків — запит за даними для транзакції, підпис (криптопідпис) даних ключами та виконання ще одного запиту із уже підписаною командою.

Криптовалюта

Кожна база даних створена із OurSQL отримує свою криптовалюту як «побічний ефект». За створення блоку відповідна нода отримує винагороду. Певну кількість одиниць криптовалюти. Потім цю валюту можна переслати на інші «гаманці» (чи адреси, чи публічні ключі). Кожна нода отримує гаманець при створенні, однак можна додавати необмежену кількість інших гаманців. У плані «криптовалюти» все працює, як у bitcoin.

Використання криптовалюти не є обов’язковим. Ці дані можна просто ігнорувати (у майбутньому зроблю можливість відключити взагалі). Проте внутрішня криптовалюта має певні корисні застосування. Наприклад, є можливість вказати «ціну змін» для конкретних типів SQL-запитів та конкретних таблиць. Це один із інструментів контролю над цілісністю бази даних. Оскільки ми говоримо про базу даних, яка може бути доступна для запису анонімним користувачам, завжди є спокуса все витерти або щось лишнє дописати. Один із способів контролю — плата за транзакцію із використанням внутрішньої валюти.

Як OurSQL зв’язаний із bitcoin та ethereum

Ніяк, за винятком використання такої самої технології «блокчейн». Але із конкретними відомими публічними блокчейнами OurSQL ніяк не пов’язаний.

Кожна база даних створена і підтримувана із OurSQL — це повністю окремий, новий блокчейн, що володіє власною криптовалютою, яка працює лише в межах цієї бази даних. Також вона не має відношення до «смарт-контрактів», хоча кожну базу даних та додаток, який її використовує можна розглядати як один великий «смарт-контракт» — єдиний на цьому блокчейні.

Де використовувати OurSQL

OurSQL може підійти для створення практично будь-якого децентралізованого додатка. Тобто якщо немає можливості створити традиційний цетралізований додаток, наприклад, через нестачу довіри до потенційного «адміністратора» цього додатка, є сенс подумати над децентралізованою системою.

Приклади:

  • Децентралізована соціальна мережа, оскільки ми не довіряємо Facebook.
  • Нове покоління фінансових інструментів, які, крім криптовалюти, мають свій внутрішній «суд», «регулятор» та інші «інститути» криптодемократії, адже ми хочемо незалежну світову валюту. Однак перший досвід не дуже успішний, потрібна регуляція та спосіб вирішення конфліктів.
  • Децентралізовані платформи для меритократії.
  • Децентралізовані месенджери (в яких платформа потрібна лише для пошуку контактів, а сама комунікація вже напряму), оскільки традиційні месенджери контролюються спецслужбами.
  • Платформи для «горизонтальних» об’єднань громадян, адже створення традиційних партій чи об’єднань вимагає довіри, а її часто немає.

Blockchain consensus

Алгоритм консенсусу є центральним поняттям в технології blockchain. Наразі OurSQL підтримує лише найпопулярніший і найнадійніший підхід — Proof of Work, аналогічний bitcoin та більшості популярних криптовалют. Кожна база даних має спеціальний файл — ConsensusConfig, у якому описано параметри для Proof of Work: складність пошуку хешу блока, кількість транзакцій у блоці, винагорода «майнеру» в монетах внутрішньої криптовалюти та ін.

Також налаштування консенсусу включають правила змін в базі даних — список таблиць, які не синхронізуються, заборона оновлень певних типів для певних таблиць (наприклад: заборона видаляти рядки із певної таблиці).

Водночас це можливість встановити «вартість» певних операцій у внутрішній валюті, що уможливлює запобігання «несанкціонованого» коригування даних та різного роду флуду даними і т. д.

Також у майбутньому я планую створити підтримку «модуля консенсусу» для кожної бази даних. Відтак розробник бази даних зможе описати максимально гнучкі правила консенсусу використовуючи програмування, а не лише конфігурування певного алгоритму.

Як спробувати OurSQL

Інсталяційного пакету поки що немає. Є 2 способи спробувати, як працює цей сервіс: скомпілювати програму або запустити в Docker-контейнері.

Використовуючи Docker-контейнери, ви можете легко запустити 2 ноди на одній машині та подивитися, як синхронізуються дані.

docker run --name oursql1 -p 9001:8765 -p 9002:8766  -d -it oursql/oursql-server interactiveautocreate -port 9001

Ця команда запустить новий контейнер, у якому створиться нова база даних. Наступна команда створить інший контейнер із додатковою нодою, яка приєднається до першої, утворивши кластер із двох нод.

docker run --name oursql2 -p 9003:8765 -p 9004:8766  -d -it oursql/oursql-server importfromandstart -port 9003 -nodeaddress host.local.address:9001

Використайте MySQL-клієнт, щоб приєднатися до першої ноди на порті 9002 або до другої на порті 9004. База даних має назву BC та користувача blockchain/blockchain. Вносьте зміни в базу даних, використовуючи SQL, і ви побачите, як зміни реплікуються між нодами.

mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -P 9002 -u blockchain -pblockchain BC

mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -P 9004 -u blockchain -pblockchain BC

Також можна підключитися до існуючої демонстраційної бази даних «OurSQL Demo DB».

docker run --name oursql -p 8765:8765 -p 8766:8766 -d -it oursql/oursql-server importandstart -port 8765 -nodeaddress 109.251.62.4:8765
mysql -h 127.0.0.1 -P 8766 -u blockchain -pblockchain BC

Деталі про роботу із цією базою можна знайти в блозі проекту.

Подальші кроки

Перше — додати можливість створення модуля консенсусу для децентралізованої бази. Наразі можна робити лише конфігураційний файл, у якому описано прості правила для Proof of Work консенсусу та правила для роботи із таблицями в базі.

Проте такий підхід має суттєві недоліки. Потрібна можливість запрограмувати правила, зробити їх більш гнучкими.

Тобто для кожної конкретної децентралізованої бази даних, підтримуваної на OurSQL, можна буде запрограмувати модуль (швидше за все на мові Golang), у якому буде реалізовано логіку роботи і можливих змін у цій базі, рівнів та прав доступу для кожного користувача.

Друге — створити декілька додатків, які використовують OurSQL, щоб продемонструвати можливості її роботи, певну найпростішу децентралізовану, соціальну мережу або систему прийняття рішень голосуванням. Реєстрація в такій системі буде здійснюватися за запрошеннями від кількох інших учасників.

MVL Foundation Pte. Ltd. (Mass Vehicle Ledger, MVL) and AXA Insurance (AXA) announced today a strategic alliance to develop and deliver mobility insurance products and services for ride hailing service TADA’s users and drivers.

From early 2019, AXA will be MVL’s preferred partner to offer insurance products to the drivers and riders of TADA, Singapore’s first and only zero-commission ride-hailing platform. MVL and AXA will also explore technical integration to create next-generation mobility insurance products and services leveraging MVL’s blockchain.

With MVL, AXA plans to roll out more innovative offerings catering to the needs of self-employed drivers on TADA’s platform as well as to embed itself in the customers’ journeys, where transportation plays a big part.

More information on the partnership will follow in the first quarter of 2019.

“Since introducing our zero-commission ride-hailing service in Singapore, TADA has positively impacted the lives of thousands of riders and drivers. We expect this partnership with AXA to unlock the vast value created for the parties in our ecosystem. With AXA being a leading insurer at the digital forefront, we are confident that both companies can leverage on our technical know-how and market expertise to deliver the future of mobility insurance to the world,” said Kay Woo, CEO of MVL.


          Blockchain for healthcare: How CIOs should be approaching it      Cache   Translate Page      
What is blockchain, and what do CIOs need to know about how it can improve healthcare? It's a question that's both straightforward and complex.There's a forum on Reddit called Explain Like I'm Five. And there's plenty of discussion there about the basic concepts behind distributed ledger technology, from the mechanics of how it's designed to the real-world problems it could solve.But one of the best explainers we've seen is one from Wired, where a blockchain expert literally explains how it works to a child (and, with ever-mounting layers of complexity, to a teenager, a college student, a grad student and a fellow expert).At its essence, of course, blockchain is a network to enable easier peer to peer exchange and reduce dependence on intermediaries. As blockchain researcher Bettina Warburg explained to the girl, it's "a type of technology that means you could trade with any kid, all over the world you don't need the store and you don't even necessarily need to know the other person."

the blockchain-powered solution for email security and identity

management, is launching its beta. Vereign’s seamless browser plugin

enables a security overlay in email clients, office programs, chat apps,

and more, that brings true confidentiality and authenticity to online

communication without interrupting workflows.


Vereign Offers the Blockchain-Powered Solution for Email Security and Authentic  ...

With 3.8 billion users worldwide, email is the most important means of

communication today. It’s extremely influential and vulnerable to

abuse. Malware and scams have caused billions of dollars in damage, and

over 90% of these scams initially travelled through email.

Vereign meets these challenges, transforming email authentication and

identity management with a range of features:

Suspicious sender alerts : Vereign knows a user’s actual bank
from an imposter. Identity management : Users can safely store their digital
identity data using cryptographic signatures, transmitting only the
information they choose, following Know Your Customer (KYC) guidelines
at Swiss banking standards. Single sign-on and unique usability : No usernames, no
passwords, no key management Digital “passports” : Users define specific profiles with
different levels of information to share with different strata of
contacts. Authenticated emails that beat the spam blocker: Emails sent
through Vereign are digitally signed and get through spam filters at a
much higher rate, useful for a range of business and sales
applications. Digital signatures : Users can legally, digitally sign and send
authenticated, verified documents. Verified transaction history : Users can see an eternal log of
messages, recipient identities, and delivery receipts without risk of
information tampering.

“I strongly believe in the viral power of Vereign,” says Georg Greve,

Co-Founder and Chairman of Vereign. “Email is one of the most powerful

tools given to us by the age of technology, and our mission is to

greatly enhance it with the advanced solutions available today.”

The Vereign beta is available on Gmail, and soon on Roundcube and

LibreOffice, and early access can be requested here: beta.vereign.com

About Vereign:

Vereign’s blockchain-based plugin solution brings integrity,

authenticity and confidentiality to online identities, data and

collaboration. Empowering businesses and individuals alike, Vereign is a

          What it's like to be a woman reporter on a cryptocurrency cruise where nearly all the other women are sex-workers      Cache   Translate Page      

Laurie Penny (previously) got sent on the 2018 CoinsBank Blockchain Cruise -- a four-day cruise filled with "starry-eyed techno-utopians and sketchy-ass crypto-grifters" who solved the fact that there almost no women signed up using the "free market": they paid teen sex workers from Ukraine to ship out with them.

Penny is a superb writer, a master of empathizing with terrible people (that is, understanding where they're coming from) without sympathizing with them (forgiving them for their terribleness) -- it's a rare skill, the sort of thing that makes her essay collection Bitch Doctrine so essential.

She set sail on the cruise at an odd moment in the cryptocurrency bubble: with crypto valuations way, way down, cryptocurrency is getting harder and harder to sell as anything but a ponzi scheme. The "investors" on the trip are often very newly wealthy, and they are furiously engaged in attempts to convince one another to "invest" in new schemes that will shift the wealth that cryptos sucked out of the masses into fewer and fewer hands.

The grifters and true believers that Penny met onboard (sometimes the same people are both!) split their time from using Telegram to procure the services of sex workers and shouting at each other about block sizes. Penny gets right into the psyches and the compartmentalization that powers the whole scene.

On most ideological bandwagons, there is usually a distinction between grifters and true believers. The grifters are in it for the fame and the money and will say any old bollocks to get either.

          Still Confused about Cryptocurrency? This Tactile Toy Has You Covered       Cache   Translate Page      

"Most young children first encounter digital money in video games, where they can acquire coins to spend at will in the game environment," Filippo Yacob says. "There's no real accountability; there's no real learning. So they associate digital money with money that isn't real."

But Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies are quickly becoming some of the realest elements of 21st-century financial literacy. As an inventor and a dad, Yacob worries that parents—many of them confused about blockchain themselves—have very few resources to help teach their kids about these topics.

So his team at Primo Toys started working on Pigzbe, a "piggy wallet," and a dedicated cryptocurrency called Wollo that aim to familiarize families with the money of the future. The Pigzbe wallet—live on Kickstarter now—is a tactile toy that will let kids see, touch, and play games with digital-currency allowances and gifts from approved relatives and friends. Families can choose whether to keep the exchange in a walled test environment or convert the funds into actual, spendable money, by going through standard Know Your Customer and Anti-Money-Laundering checks.

The goal is to bring all the abstraction of cryptocurrency into real-world, everyday play. Yacob's background with Cubetto, a screen-free wooden robot that teaches kids to code, and his co-founder Jon Marshall's experience creating Kano, the computer "anyone can make," taught them that simplifying complicated subjects for kids really just comes down to putting them in practical, hands-on applications.

From left, co-founders Jon Marshall, Filippo Yacob, Adam Amos, and Richard Williams.

"Pigzbe is a physical home for something digital," Yacob says. "In the same way that you can touch, feel, pick up, and shake a piggy bank, you can have this lovely kinesthetic interaction with Pigzbe. What I learned doing Cubetto—and what John learned designing Kano—is that these physical objects become really powerful portals into these digital experiences."

"Children learn by doing, they learn by touching things."

Yacob thinks that educational tools that aim to explain every aspect of financial transactions miss the point. Pigzbe is designed to teach families the essentials of cryptocurrency without getting bogged down in the minute details. "We think that anybody can learn about managing money in the digital world. They just need very simple, fun, and engaging tools that involve the whole family," he says.

"Do you know how SMS works? No. You just know that you can send and receive messages. Do you know how your bank works? You don't. You just know that money comes in and out. We focus our message on the usefulness of a product, on how fun and how engaging the product can be. So we decided to focus on this interaction between family members around pocket money and allowances and what they can do with it."

He's seen the potential of this product firsthand, from watching how his own family interacts with money. "My son was talking to his grandad on Skype about how he had been pretty good that day—he's a little devil sometimes—and my dad was showing him a one-pence coin, saying, 'I'll come and give you this because you've been good. I'll give it to you next month.'

And, you know, every five-year-old has the attention span of a fly. So the lesson there was lost. He got excited for a reward that he never got. And the good behavior or the drive to be better got lost," says Yacob.

When he looked into what it would take to send small amounts of money across international borders in real time, he was frustrated by the limited options. "I do my banking on my phone; I pay in shops using Apple Pay. Money's already digital. Why can't my dad send my son a one-pence coin? That was when I realized the opportunity. All of the other digital money boxes out there are run by banks: they're expensive, they have fees, and they don't let you transfer small amounts across international borders. They don't allow us to connect in that way."

And digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, he found, are still slow, unreliable, and expensive. "We settled for creating our own token and a brand that's associated with family financing, something that is built specifically for the use case of 'piggy banking.'"

If you feel hesitant about turning your family into a microfinancing network, rest assured that the Primo Toys team has built certain safeguards into their platform. "You would never find yourself interacting in the Pigzbe app with anyone who you didn't specifically allow into your system," explains Yacob. It's a closed network until the family opts to use the Wollo card and start spending the digital currency out in the world—that's when the Know Your Customers and Anti-Money Laundering checks kick in. And Primo Toys has already started building interest in the Wollo currency through a successful ICO (initial coin offering) earlier this year.

Yacob recognizes that "when things are new, people don't understand them and are scared." But he sees Pigzbe as part of a healthy tide of products and services that will help people get more comfortable with blockchain-enabled currencies. "I think we're just going to see more real companies coming on, building really useful products with blockchain, and behaving with the same regulations as traditional companies.

"You can bring something out of the screen and give the digital world a new dimension," Yacob says. "That's the promise of IoT, that you can imbue life and connectivity and magic into the inanimate physical objects that surround us. You can turn anything into a magical surface. We love physical devices, especially for kids and for learning—and for adult kids as well. We don't really stop playing just because we've grown up."

Pigzbe is live on Kickstarter through January 25, 2019.
