Australian Bank ANZ Still Doesn’t Understand Blockchain Technology

The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) has thrown some serious shade at distributed ledger technology — commonly referred to as ‘the blockchain.’  According to the third-largest bank by market capitalization in Australia, legacy financial institutions aren’t exactly under immediate threat from the trustless transactions introduced by Bitcoin (BTC) and its creator, Satoshi Nakamoto. Maria Bellmas, ANZ Institutional’s associate director of trade and supply chain products, stated: Blockchain has been the darling of the tech world for some time and increasingly so over the medium term, perhaps in part pushed by scorned crypto fanatics grasping for some justification of their obsession in the wake of the bitcoin collapse. Sold as a solution to all of life’s problems, blockchain offers a ton of legitimate solutions for businesses – but raises just as many questions. One of those questions, according to Bellmas’, is why legacy financial institutions need blockchain technology to improve their offerings. She believes that traditional banks and the like “do not necessarily need it and are better off using existing good old databases and technology solutions.” Bellmas’ statements come shortly after JPMorgan Chase announced its own in-house cryptocurrency, JPM Coin. International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) also recently launched its blockchain-powered World Wire service, which aims to provide new financial pathways that both clear and settle cross-border payments almost instantaneously. So, yeah … maybe those good old databases and technology solutions aren’t quite good enough. Still, that news apparently didn’t reach Bellmas, who continued: The reality is a lot of the problems blockchain projects attempt to fix have already been solved by existing technologies. In many cases, a regular database can solve for the problem with more reliability and for much less cost than blockchain. Bellmas failed to note which existing technologies, specifically, remove the need for a trusted third-party when transacting value across borders for virtually non-existent fees and in real-time. What do you think of Bellmas’ statements? Do you agree that financial institutions do not need blockchain technology? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!  Images courtesy of Shutterstock. The post Australian Bank ANZ Still Doesn’t Understand Blockchain Technology appeared first on Bitcoinist.com.

Ethereum [ETH] core dev clarifies acceptance of ProgPow in future hard forks

Programmatic Proof-of-Work [ProgPow] has been one of the most talked-about updates in the Ethereum community. Its implementation proposal saw the support of a majority of the Ethereum community, with some expecting it to go live in the Istanbul hard fork and others claiming that it would have its own small hard fork. In a Reddit post on the Ethereum subreddit, Hudson Jameson, one of the core devs of Ethereum Foundation, spoke about the future of ProgPow, whether it would go live in a hard fork, and most importantly if it would go live or not. He said: “Back when we were deciding the issuance reduction at the end of 2018, ProgPoW was brought up a lot. Some considered it a ‘bargaining chip’ for miners to accept the issuance reduction. Some miners believe that it was agreed upon that we would put ProgPoW in a hard fork in exchange for an issuance reduction.” This was followed by Hudson stating that during the end of 2018, the core devs decided to “investigate ProgPow to the fullest extent” and that there were “no promises” made in terms of its implementation. Further, he stated that even on January 4, 2019, at the core devs meeting, the decision to tentatively go ahead with ProgPow was made after he asked for consensus amongst team members on whether they had any opposition with it. However, no one responded to the question. Hudson said: “It’s sort of like accepting a proposal by silence. To be clear, there were some core devs who were in favor of ProgPoW and had been for a long time so there was no need to reiterate their support at that moment. We were only looking for dissenting opinions and otherwise we would go forward with it.” Source: Reddit This was followed by Hudson stating that the Ethereum Cat Herders were working on finding the “appropriate auditor and rising funds” for ProgPow audit, adding that the complete details pertaining to this would be released next week. He added, “In summary, a decision was made to move forward with ProgPoW, but no timeline was given as to when it would be activated in a hard fork. It may be activated in its own fork or with Istanbul. If an issue is found by the ProgPoW audit, we may not go forward with implementing and activating ProgPoW.” Source: Reddit The post Ethereum [ETH] core dev clarifies acceptance of ProgPow in future hard forks appeared first on AMBCrypto.
