Waves Platform Implements New Blockchain Scalability Approaches

Waves Platform Implements New Blockchain Scalability Approaches

Bitcoin Press Release: Waves platform is making progress with scalability solutions for its blockchain network. January 13, 2017, Moscow, Russia – Waves platform, the custom blockchain token initiative targeting mass-market consumer and business adoption, has announced a series of measures to enable greater network scalability. Scalability has long been a problem for cryptocurrency platforms. Since every transaction is recorded on the blockchain, the requirement of resources to process and store the information continues to increase. Bitcoin itself has been the subject of numerous scalability proposals, including Segregated Witness (SegWit) to improve its current maximum capacity and allow greater adoption. Diverse Approaches for Scalability The Waves team has made a series of publications and presentations aimed at addressing various aspects of scalability. These will be integrated into the Waves protocol in near future. Early in January, Leonid Reyzin delivered a presentation titled “Improving Authenticated Dynamic Dictionaries” at Real World Crypto 2017. It offered details about possible ways to streamline the large and growing key value store associated with blockchain transactions. The implementation of authenticated data structures allows for continued use of lower-powered devices to maintain the network, enabling greater efficiency than current approaches. Waves platform is refactoring and optimizing the storage to reduce blockchain size so that it is ready for different implementations in the near future. Next-gen PoS and Choices for Miners This can dramatically increase transaction throughput. Using these combined techniques, the Waves development team aims not only to improve security and create a robust network but also to raise the transaction capacity. However, until blockchain can scale properly it cannot hope to compete against traditional payment processors...

Status.im, an Ethereum Mobile Client Launches in Alpha, Aimed at Early Adopters and Developers

Status.im, an Ethereum Mobile Client Launches in Alpha, Aimed at Early Adopters and Developers

Singapore – 6 January 2016 – Status, an Ethereum light client targeting Android & iOS unveiled its feature light alpha today. The alpha release aims to provide developers with a glimpse at how interacting with decentralized applications (DApps) will look through its open source interface. As a base offering, Status is both a messenger, and a DApp browser — enabling users to access decentralized applications, along with sending encrypted messages, smart contracts, and digital currency to one another using Ethereum’s decentralized protocols. Status utilizes messaging as a platform, upon which Ethereum DApp developers can integrate with through its Chat API and developer tooling, slated for the Beta release. “One way to think about Status is that it’ll eventually serve as a sort of onramp or gateway so that everyday people can benefit from decentralized applications built on Ethereum, whilst simultaneously helping DApp developers to reach new users,” said Co-Founder Jarrad Hope, adding “It’s been a long time coming, but we couldn’t be more excited about releasing this to the Ethereum community; as an alpha release it’ll inevitably have its fair share of bugs, and we have a tremendous amount of work still ahead of us, but it’s an important milestone nonetheless.” Messaging as a platform is already a proven model in many markets, but Status is perhaps the first decentralized, blockchain-based interpretation. “In our eyes Status provides a clear path towards Ethereum user-adoption on a meaningful scale, while remaining flexible and general enough to cater to the wide range of DApp ideas we’re yet to see conceived,” said Co-Founder Carl Bennetts, “We truly believe that Ethereum and blockchain technology...
Waves Blockchain Platform Introduces New Framework for Community-Based Ratings Organizations

Waves Blockchain Platform Introduces New Framework for Community-Based Ratings Organizations

Bitcoin Press Release: Waves Platform has announced the launch of a new token for community-based KYC/screening of new assets. January 6, 2017, Moscow, Russia – The Waves platform has announced the upcoming launch of a new token as a part of its recently introduced Custom Application Token (CAT) facility on the mainnet. The new token distribution will enable Waves to foster community engagement in the next nine months. The new token, aptly called the Waves Community Token (WCT) will be distributed after January 15, 2017. Initially, 20 percent of the WCTs will be distributed across all existing Waves wallet addresses based on their average WAVES balance between 1st and 15th January 2017. The initial distribution will be followed by 8 similar distributions in tranches of 10 percent each time. In order to be able to receive the WCTs, Waves community members should be holding their balance in Waves local wallets. Any WAVES tokens on exchange platforms are not eligible for WCT distribution. Waves Community Token is designed to be much more than an alternative to Ethereum’s DAOs, which was compromised earlier in 2016. However, WCTs have better security, reliability and can serve a number of purposes. The DAO like feature on WCT enables members to offer community-based ratings for new projects launched on Waves platform. Asset issuers on Waves platform will also be able to distribute a proportion of their crowdfunded tokens to the WCT and Waves community in return for various services. Waves Community Token (WCT), like any other Waves CAT assets, is freely transferable and tradable. WCT holders are eligible to receive a constant stream of asset...

Remitano P2P Bitcoin Exchange is Completely Independent from Traditional Banking Partners

Remitano P2P Bitcoin Exchange is Completely Independent from Traditional Banking Partners

Bitcoin Press Release: Bitcoin P2P exchange, Remitano eliminates dependency on the mainstream banking sector to offer uninterrupted service. December 30, 2016, Seychelles – Remitano Bitcoin P2P exchange, with its service in multiple countries operates without the need of a banking partner, completely shielding the service from their whims and fancies. Remitano is different from other centralized exchange platforms currently in the market, which are heavily dependent on the banks to receive deposits and facilitate withdrawals for customers. Banks have a history of harassing centralized exchange platforms. The recent example of accounts belonging to some of the well-known Malaysian centralized exchanges being shut down by the banks caused a great trouble to customers trying to cash out or make deposits. Such situations have led to increased attention towards P2P exchange platforms that can nullify the ability of banks to shut down or dictate terms to cryptocurrency exchanges. The Remitano P2P Exchange deals only with Bitcoin and leaves all banking related activities to the users so that the operation is not hindered by banks’ temper. Even though Remitano is a latecomer to the party, it stands apart from other existing exchange platforms because of its simple UI and friendly customer support. In the case of any issue, Remitano customers can jump on a live chat and get their questions answered and issues solved quickly. In addition, the 0.5% fee charged by the platform is lower than the other major platforms in the market. The platform is a product of Seychelles based Babylon Solution Limited operating in many countries including the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Nigeria, Vietnam, Cambodia, China, India,...

“Banking on Bitcoin” Film to Hit Theatres on January 6, 2017 Accompanied by VOD Release

Bitcoin Press Release: “Banking on Bitcoin” movie on the popular cryptocurrency’s evolution is scheduled for release in select theaters and VOD on January 6, 2017. December 28, 2016, California, USA – “Banking on Bitcoin” a feature film on Bitcoin, its history and future is set to be released on January 6, 2017. Produced by Gravitas Ventures, the film will be launched at select theaters and will also be made available on VOD. The “Banking on Bitcoin” film covers the most disruptive digital invention since the Internet. It follows the ideological battle underway between fringe utopists and mainstream capitalism. An in-depth coverage of key players in the space including Charlie Shrem, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, Barry Silbert, Erik Voorhees, Nathanial Popper, Alex Winter and more gives an insight into how they think this revolutionary cryptocurrency technology will shape our lives. “Our production has excelled in more ways than we could ever have anticipated,” Said David Guy Levy. He added, “With the material we’ve managed to produce, and the interviews we’ve procured, we hope that the audience will find the final piece as engaging and thought-provoking as we do,” Bitcoin is one of the controversial creations of technology that is set to change the world. Its early pioneers sought to blur the lines of sovereignty and the financial status quo that has been around for ages. After years of underground development, Bitcoin grabbed the attention of curious public — as well as the ire of the regulators the technology had subverted. Yet after landmark arrests of prominent cybercriminals. Bitcoin, which surged on election night and recently peaked at over $900 per...
Waves Platform and Higher School of Economics Partner for Pro FinTech Startup Program

Waves Platform and Higher School of Economics Partner for Pro FinTech Startup Program

December 28, 2016, Moscow, Russia – Business Incubator of Higher School of Economics in Moscow has announced the second year of fintech startup program HSE{Pro}Fintech. Official partners of the fintech section are Waves, the decentralized platform for crowdfunding and community management and National Settlement Depository. FinTech applications The Incubator recently launched the second round of its {pro} fintech programme. The program aims to develop projects in the field of financial and blockchain technologies, in particular services for banks and their customers, personal finance management systems, peer-to-peer services, investment systems, payments, transfers and other fintech products. Whilst Bitcoin has pioneered peer-to-peer online money transfer for almost 8 years now, Blockchain 2.0 technology is still in its relative infancy. A number of decentralised asset exchanges have already been created, including on the Nxt, BitShares, and Counterparty platforms. However, none of these have achieved significant traction, for a number of reasons. Firstly, they were small ecosystems. The assets traded generally had low liquidity and high spreads, and being decentralised platforms there was little accountability and a large proportion of low-quality and fraudulent assets. Regulations were practically non-existent. Additionally, trading was slow due to inherent block-time limitations of the blockchain. This made it almost impossible to attract legitimate new businesses and for these early decentralised exchanges to achieve critical mass. New solutions Waves platform is aiming to bring solutions to all of these problems with its Waves’ DEX (decentralised exchange), which has just been released on testnet. It allows any token to be traded directly against any other token – rather than trading two tokens separately against a reference currency, as most other...

CLOAKCOIN Makes a Comeback with Advanced Technology, Multi-Platform Wallets, and a Great Team

CLOAKCOIN Makes a Comeback with Advanced Technology, Multi-Platform Wallets, and a Great Team

December 20, 2016 – CLOAKCOIN is a well-known cryptocurrency. It is one of the first coins to target the so-called anon coin market currently being dominated by the latecomers like Monero, ZCash, and others. There are also examples of many people abusing the anon coin market to turn it into an “easy come, easy go” market by creating Ponzi-like schemes around it. These fraudulent actions on their part have given the whole cryptocurrency market a bad reputation among serious investors. Unlike a majority of cryptocurrencies, CLOAKCOIN is a mature and serious contender, prepared to lead the anon coin market. Since the development of CLOAKCOIN was taken over by a dedicated team of enthusiastic organizers, coders and investors, it has turned into a highly sophisticated tool for private, secure and untraceable transactions. The CLOAKCOIN team has implemented a unique off chain peer-to-peer coin mixing arrangement called ENIGMA covered by a TOR like onion routing system named CLOAKSHIELD. The strong and independent technology introduced by CLOAKCOIN contains no master nodes, encryption that can’t be forced and no traceability guarantees anonymity for all transactions while addressing issues like fungibility and more. Based on POS Consensus algorithm, the cryptocurrency offers an interest of 6% per annum to every hot CLOAKCOIN owner. In addition, they are also eligible to a share in the network’s 1.8% transaction fee for their support towards ENIGMA transactions. CLOAKCOIN’s easy to use wallets are already available on multiple platforms, with support for more operating systems to be added soon. Best of all, where many other coins offer command line interface wallets which are hard to handle by the average...
Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov Explores Trends in Automated Crypto Trading

Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov Explores Trends in Automated Crypto Trading

Bitcoin Press Release: Waves Blockchain Platform, under the leadership of Sasha Ivanov, explores opportunities in automated trading solutions. December 20, 2016, Moscow, Russia – Waves blockchain platform, host of the recently held Trading in the era of Robots and Bitcoin in November 2016 at its Digital October Center office is exploring some of the developing trends in the cryptocurrency trading arena with an intention of capitalizing on them. Sasha Ivanov, the CEO of Waves platform is leading the initiative. A Brief History of Cryptocurrency Trading The history of cryptocurrency trading dates back to the day blockchain based money was introduced. The concept of Bitcoin was introduced in 2008 followed by the network’s launch the next year. The first Bitcoin exchange, Mt Gox started its operations in 2010, which went on until February 2014 before it closed down due to series of management and security issues. Mt Gox’ loss was indicated to be around 850,000 BTCs, which was revised later after 200,000 BTCs were found in an ’old format’ wallet. Since then, cryptocurrency exchanges are always under a constant threat of being hacked. Bitfinex, the latest exchange to get hacked lost around $70 million back in August 2016. Despite the risks, many traders continue to be attracted to cryptocurrency trading due to the earning potential it offers. Ivanov explains that the crypto market is inefficient; opportunities for arbitrage exist between exchanges, and the market is very volatile and unregulated with a constantly shifting landscape. Regulation and Efficiency Ivanov believes that the cryptocurrency market will move in the direction of greater regulation and efficiency. Arbitrage opportunities will gradually disappear paving way...
