USA Space Agency NASA is Exploring Blockchain Solutions to Manage Air Traffic and Security

One of the biggest players that are leveraging the blockchain technology is US space agency NASA in order to curb the cyber attacks in aerospace agents. And now, the agency is considering using the benefits of blockchain technology to control air traffics. NASA engineer Ronald Reisman and the agency believes blockchain technology could be used to put a stop to the spoofing and the denial of the service attacks that are present in the American air-traffic control systems. Earlier this month, United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) proposed a paper on “Air Traffic Management Blockchain Infrastructure for Security, Authentication, and Privacy.” Blockchain For Security, Authentication, & Privacy Of Air Traffic The official paper notes, “The design innovation is the use of an open source permissioned blockchain framework to enable aircraft privacy and anonymity while providing a secure and efficient method for communication with Air Traffic Services, Operations Support, or other authorized entities.” The paper further talks about what it constitutes, “This framework features certificate authority, smart contract support, and higher-bandwidth communication channels for private information that may be used for secure communication between any specific aircraft and any particular authorized member, sharing data in accordance with the terms specified in the form of smart contracts.” Aviation Blockchain Infrastructure For Communication Talking about the national adoption of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B), that is mandated by the FAA system by 2020, Reisman writes, the system is at risk of privacy, anonymity, authentication, and resistance to malicious interference, including spoofing and/or denial of service attacks. However, the blockchain prototype has the design and method to mitigate these security risks. Hence, NASA is reportedly planning to use the open-sourced permissioned blockchain framework to fix these vulnerabilities. The proposed ABI, “Aviation Blockchain Infrastructure” is a design that enables aircraft to communicate privately, securely, and effectively with air traffic management along with other authorized entities. The blockchain infrastructure could help them secure and improve communication and minimize the risks. However, now, the next steps in the process are the development and demonstration of ADS-B modification that satisfies the privacy concerns of military and corporate stakeholders. So, it remains to be seen if it will integrate blockchain technology into their (ADS-B) system to track air traffic.

Coinbase Pushes For Bitcoin Adoption On Asia’s Wall Street

Bitcoin Heavyweight Coinbase Forays Into Asia Bitcoin industry powerhouse Coinbase has long been a staple of America’s and Europe’s crypto ecosystems. However, the upstart, headquartered in the heart of San Francisco, has been slow to make a move on the Asian subset of investors, rumored to be the most influential group in the cryptosphere. And as such, other exchanges have taken Coinbase’s place as a go-to platform in the region. However, the company, valued at $8 billion in an October funding round, still sees potential in snagging the business of Asian institutions. As recently reported by Bloomberg, Kayvon Pirestani, the head of Coinbase’s institutional efforts in Asia, claimed that the continent and its constituents are “super important for the crypto ecosystem,” likely touching on the historical hegemony that crypto innovators in the region established. The firm executive added that the region is home to a mass of “some of the most active retail traders in the world,” and institutional ones too. These comments were released in tandem with a Coinbase blog post, which revealed that the company would be offering an array of services to firms on Asia’s version of Wall Street. Per the release, institutions that trade high volumes now have access to Coinbase Prime’s trading services, and the upstart’s custody service. The company also revealed that it will allow its Asian clients to “fund their accounts” via inbound and outbound SWIFT transfers. Through the aforementioned Bloomberg interview, Pirestani doubled-down on the perceived importance of the Asian market, stating: “I would argue that the Asia customer base is already moving the needle for the firm. One of our top five clients by revenue is in the Asian region.” Isn’t Coinbase Pivoting Away From Wall Street? Interestingly, Coinbase’s sudden foray into the institutional market in Asia comes amid reports that the company has begun to turn its back on Wall Street’s household names, instead focusing on crypto-centric funds situated on “San Fran’s Market Street.” The Block, who broke the news on the matter, revealed that Jonathan Kellner, the former chief executive at brokerage giant Instinet, wasn’t going to take a stint at Coinbase. This is contradictory to reports that claimed Kellner was going to head Coinbase’s institutional branch, formerly led by Adam White of Bakkt. Esteemed fintech journalist Frank Chaparro, citing a company spokesperson, divulged that Coinbase will not be seeing Kellner join its C-suite. Dan Romero, a long-time Coinbase top brass member did comment on the matter. Romero, who took Kellner’s likely role, remarked that while Jonathan is an “exceptional leader,” Coinbase thought it right to refocus its efforts on its retail business and hedge fund services, rather than broader institutional-focused products. Hinting that this sudden change was a result of developments in the broader crypto sector, Romero noted that this sector is “incredibly fast-moving,” adding that market conditions can essentially change on a dime. The de-facto Coinbase Institutional head later explained that his organization’s “focus on mainstream financial brands has cooled off slightly,” revealing scant details about the matter. While Romero seemed somewhat unfazed, CoinRoutes chief executive David Weisberger noted to The Block that Kellner’s departure is a “big loss” for the startup. So maybe, institutional interest is waning in America, but swelling across the pond. The post Coinbase Pushes For Bitcoin Adoption On Asia’s Wall Street appeared first on Ethereum World News.
