Byteball to Give Away Its New Cryptocurrency for Free to Bitcoin Holders on Christmas Day

Bitcoin Press Release: Byteball cryptocurrency platform to offer Bytes tokens proportional to users’ Bitcoin holdings on December 25, 2016. December 8, 2016, Moscow, Russia – The cryptocurrency platform Byteball has announced its upcoming launch on December 25, 2016. As a part of its launch offering, Byteball will allow Bitcoin users to claim fresh Bytes (Byteball’s crypto tokens), proportional to their respective Bitcoin balances on the day of Christmas. The platform will take into account the status of Bitcoin distribution across the network, as available on the first Bitcoin block mined on December 25. Byteball, the cryptocurrency platform for decentralized storage and transfer of value, is built on Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) instead of blockchain like other existing cryptocurrencies. The absence of blockchain helps Byteball avoid block size related scalability issues, which Bitcoin is currently facing. In order to receive free Bytes, members of the Bitcoin community will have to prove their Bitcoin balance and link the addresses with that of Byteball before December, 25. The unique cryptocurrency platform can be used to issue assets representing debt, shares, commodities, etc. Regulatory compliance can be easily achieved through a multi-signature process that requires the issuer to co-sign all transfers. Byteball also makes allowance for the creation of untraceable assets where transaction information is conveyed directly from payer to payee, and only hashes are stored on a public database. The developers of Byteball have created an entire cryptocurrency ecosystem, including an easy-to-use smart contracts platform, cryptocurrency wallets, bot supported e-commerce, and more. The platform already has a running testnet. Like blockchain, DAG is decentralized and the information stored on the Byteball is...

The public testnet will be officially released on December 9, 2016, at 1900 UTC. Soon after the release, it will be available on ARK’s GitHub account for community members to download and set up their first network nodes.

Electronic Government as a Service — eGaaS Enters Beta Testing Phase

Bitcoin Press Release: The blockchain platform for world governments has started beta testing its platform amidst the ongoing ICO. November 20, 2016 – Electronic Government as a Service — eGaaS, an international blockchain platform for organizing the economic, state and social activities for citizens and their communities based on smart law and smart contracts has entered the testing phase. The platform is designed to make the migration of government and community functions to blockchain easier. eGaaS does it by implementing four basic functions — financial system, registry structure, smart contract algorithm and smart law formation & execution mechanism. The features of eGaaS are sufficient to efficiently transfer most types of government, legislative and business activities onto blockchain. The platform is the first of its kind to implement a mechanism to frame and execute smart laws. These smart laws are algorithms describing the rules and conditions regulating the execution of state laws. The credibility of smart laws is confirmed by the representatives of legislative bodies using digital signatures. Smart laws are responsible for regulating the creation and execution of smart contracts. They automatically regulate the relationship between individuals and organizations in all areas of state activity, ranging from civil registration to tax remissions. Being a blockchain platform with the mechanism for creation and execution of smart contracts and smart laws, eGaaS can be used even before governments come onboard. eGaaS can be successfully used to create a variety of financial, business and social applications such as payment systems, stock exchanges, insurance and credit organizations, accounting and management systems for all fields — from commerce to medicine.

Komodo Platform: Blockchain for Everyone

Komodo Platform: Blockchain for Everyone

Blockchain technology has brought us unparalleled tools that allow us to achieve some degree of financial freedom. However, several aspects of cryptocurrency force us to pick and choose which features we value the most: efficiency, privacy, stability, speed, etc. However, it does not have to be like this. The Komodo Platform has put tools in place that can help cryptocurrencies achieve mass adoption and consumer satisfaction by allowing users to benefit from all the advantages that they provide without the need to sacrifice what they like best about national currencies. The Komodo Platform is fueled by Komodo coins, a cryptographic token that allows users to protect their identity with zero knowledge proofs, a technology first developed by the Zcash project. To protect privacy and ensure that no double-spending or hacks take place on the Komodo blockchain, a notarization process known as Delayed Proof of Work has been created. This mechanism relies on special nodes that publish the history of the Komodo blockchain on Bitcoin’s in order to notarize it. Once these two important tools are in place (Privacy and Security), special features that were not possible before can be implemented. Many merchants and even average users stay away from Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies in general due to their volatile nature. No one wants to sell a product to see his gains swept away by a price crash that is completely unpredictable. As so, the team behind Komodo has created a set of assets that consist in 32 fiat currencies. These price stable assets are protected by the same privacy and security standards that Komodo coins are, therefore anyone can transfer...
PolkaDot Brings Multiple Blockchains into One Network by Unlocking Scalability and Extensibility

PolkaDot Brings Multiple Blockchains into One Network by Unlocking Scalability and Extensibility

Bitcoin Press Release: Dr. Gavin Wood and Melonport collaborate to provide the first decentralized digital asset management infrastructure with multiple blockchains. November 14, 2016, Walchwil, Switzerland – Melonport AG announces its collaboration with Parity (Ethcore) and its founder Dr. Gavin Wood to launch “Melon”, a ground-breaking software for asset managers. Melon will be the first decentralized application on the revolutionary Polkadot multi-chain network. The Polkadot concept by Dr. Gavin Wood, the founder of Parity Technologies Ltd and former CTO of Ethereum, will be explained today in a big breakthrough paper. Polkadot is a multi-chain framework that supports interoperability between wildly different chains with different properties including encrypted proof-of-authority chains suitable for internal enterprise networks ( – as long as they confirm to certain specifications). For the very first time in blockchain history, the different blockchains will form one large inclusive interoperable multi-chain network with pooled security. Melon will provide the first use case — a completely decentralized blockchain infrastructure intended to give secure and user-friendly access to manage or invest in portfolio similar to hedge funds. It goes beyond normal crypto wallets providing a ‘rule set’ which forces certain elements into portfolios (e.g. performance calculations and trade restrictions) Melon also has a ‘modular’ element which allows room for opinion on matters like price feed sources, exchanges, management fees etc. The completely open source software for competitive and decentralized asset management solutions, Melon can be found on GitHub at the following link. Melon will initially be targeted at individuals looking to set up and manage crypto portfolios and build their track records on it. The protocol allows for investing and...
ARK Crew Announces Official Open Source Release of ARK Blockchain Code on GitHub

ARK Crew Announces Official Open Source Release of ARK Blockchain Code on GitHub

Bitcoin Press Release: ARK Crew, the blockchain platform has announced the date for their official open source release of ARK Code on GitHub. November 12, 2016, Lons-le-Saunier, France – ARK Crew, the development team behind the new ARK cryptocurrency ecosystem has announced the date for the official release of their open source code on GitHub. The source code will be made available on the platform’s account – https://github.com/ArkEcosystem starting November 12, 2016, at 19:00 UTC. The ARK source code launch is set to coincide with the platform’s first developer-focused bounty program. The bounty program is designed to encourage others to participate in the review and provide feedback on the project. The release of the ARK source code signifies a major step in the development of the cryptocurrency platform and a positive move towards the official launch, currently slated for February 1, 2017. Many projects choose to keep their source code private until after their official launch, but ARK aims to buck that trend. Matthew DC, a Board Member of the ARK Crew had the following to say, “We know it may seem unusual to release our code before we even launch our project, but we want to be as open as possible. Rather than shy away from competition or worry about others using our code, we highly encourage it. The more teams we have working on ARK technology, the better it will be for everyone!” ARK is currently accepting BTC and Lisk during their Token Exchange Campaign (TEC) and have raised over $1 million USD in the first 24 hours, including over 5 million Lisk. The TEC will continue...
SuperNET Team Introduces EasyDEX: Fully Functional Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchange

SuperNET Team Introduces EasyDEX: Fully Functional Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchange

Bitcoin Press Release: SuperNET team, the brains behind ZCash based Komodo cryptocurrency protocol has announced the launch of its EasyDEX decentralized exchange platform. November 12, 2016 – Centralized cryptocurrency exchanges, despite being extremely useful and convenient, deviate from the very premise on which Bitcoin was founded: The trustless exchange of value. These exchanges require users to convert their funds into IOU (I Owe You) tokens in order to exchange them within the market. When a user wants to withdraw his funds, the IOUs are converted back into real cryptocurrencies. However, this poses a huge risk for the user as centralized exchanges are prone to inside thefts and outside hacks, something that has been demonstrated repeatedly by the recent happenings in the cryptocurrency industry. Customers of these platforms have lost millions of dollars’ worth of Bitcoin and other altcoin funds to hackers and cybercriminals. There are few decentralized alternatives available at the moment, but more than often they lack the liquidity and convenience that users are otherwise used to. This may soon change as the team behind the SuperNET project has recently released a whitepaper describing the implementation of a fully functional and decentralized exchange. The SuperNET team, headed by the famous coder JL777, have developed a series of projects capable of interconnecting with each other to complete themselves in the SuperNET ecosystem. These include EasyDEX and most recent, Komodo Platform. Unlike most projects in the crypto industry, these projects don’t seek to compete with Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrencies. Instead, they focus on creating tools and features that benefit all blockchain projects by strengthening them further. These tools include;...
