Huawei vs. Apple: How a technology invention could stir up a whole world political weather

What are the benefits of 5G?One may see or perceive it as just the series of moving from 3G to 4G, thereby just seeing it as a sequence but believe it or not 5G is a life changer, the real definition of technology and speed. 5G is so fast that it will reform our world and transform our way of lives. Research by some peers shows that a document file that can take about 10 hours to upload or download on the 2G/3G network will take about an hour using the 4G network but hey 5G does it on just a click.With the yet to launch 5G network u can’t make excuses to your mum or dad on the telephone over unclear phone call conversations, there will be no place for faking… just imagine you been gone out to party with some friends and your phone rings, picks up and want to fake and drop it pretending its network, those days are far goneSo if its technology and so beneficial why then will America (apple) & China (Huawei) be in a race to who launches the technology first? Why are they at war?From my findings U.S won the 4G it attracted a nearly 100 billion dollars, this might have rung a bell in your ears now; anyone who wins the race attracts over 500 billion dollars with extra job opportunities. This clearly signifies that both countries are in for the money, and anyone that has money equally has power, so it means killing two birds with a stone.One will think that it only ends with money & power but it does not end here, there is more to it, anyone with control of the 5G has access to the whole world’s information and that what it is and that’s what America is against thinking Huawei the company in charge will be oppressed by its government China to give out information. But the question is won’t America Government oppressed and seek this same information?Who wins these war, China or America?Huawei vs. Apple: How a technology invention could stir up a whole world political weather was originally published in Hacker Noon on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Max’s Corner: Apple and Facebook and the (Not So) Great Crypto Arms Race

Coinspeaker Max’s Corner: Apple and Facebook and the (Not So) Great Crypto Arms RaceWith recent news reports lending credence to the idea that there is a big-tech blockchain arms race going on, all eyes this past week were on Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference—specifically the cryptography session—where Apple’s new CryptoKit was unveiled.Having worked at Bytecoin, where we are constantly researching and developing methods of cryptography, for some time now, I was interested in what Apple had to say but also skeptical of their intentions, given their tepid engagement with the crypto space.Yannick Sierra, cryptographic engineering manager for Apple, kicked off the session by saying:“Welcome to the Bitcoin session! Kidding — welcome to Cryptography and Your Apps session!”And although, as Sierra’s joke nods to, much of the excitement surrounding the event was due to the implications it could have for the crypto industry, this droll mention of Bitcoin would end up being the only direct reference to cryptocurrency during the conference.Why Was there Buzz About This Event?Apple is arguably the biggest name in technology. When Apple rolls new products out — even if those products are minor — people pay attention. Gone may be the days when announcements and unveilings from Apple were seen as modern, verifiable equivalents to pronouncements from the Oracle at Delphi, but these events are still cultural significant in a way that no other tech company’s previews are.In this particular case, not only was there build-up due to Apple being Apple, the dynamic was different as the details of the new release that had been shared before the session were fodder to a crypto community built upon evangelism and seeing adoption in the tea leaves. We are currently at a juncture that many in the crypto community consider a watershed moment in terms of crypto proliferation and mainstream awareness.Just down the road in California, Facebook, another giant of the tech world, is gearing up to launch Libra, its own global cryptocurrency available to users of its suite of platforms (including Whatsapp, Instagram, and Messenger). It’s rumored that the whitepaper for Libra will be released in the coming weeks.With over 2 billion users who will be able to use the platform-native currency to transact with each other in a variety of different ways, the launch of Libra is set to shake-up the entire cryptocurrency industry.Here’s what we know about Libra and how it will possibly be used: Libra will be a stable coin whose value is tied to a basket of fiat currencies. Users of any of Facebook’s platforms will theoretically be able to use the currency for a variety of services and transactions. Although nothing is concrete right now, it is possible Libra could be used for transactions like grocery shopping and buying a cup of coffee in the morning.Of course, anyone who has been following developments in the crypto industry even briefly by now has grown all-too-familiar with such claims about everyday usage for a new crypto platform. The thing is though, this time it is different. A substantial amount of human activity already takes place on Facebook and its subsidiary platforms.With over 2 billion users spread out across the world, Facebook is already a major means of doing business, of communicating, and of transacting. With that kind of network already in place, and more financial support than any project could need, the sky is truly the limit in terms of how far Libra could go.Not long ago we looked at the current situation in Venezuela and how cryptocurrency could be used to slow down some of the economic turmoil in the country and alleviate the human suffering that the fallout has caused. Now if Facebook had their currency up and running, barring more extreme actions on the part of the current regime, the economic dynamics of the situation would be drastically different on an individual level.One of the goals it seems that Facebook has with their cryptocurrency, as the tech giant and its founder-cum-talisman mover further into the fields of politics and social engineering, is to be a vehicle of improvement in developing countries. With their new cryptocurrency, this could take shape in a fascinating way that would potentially be extending into new waters that global financial and regulatory bodies do not really have covered.With services available to everyone on their platform, Facebook will be opening doors to many people that live in unbanked and underbanked areas, areas that have been ignored or ravaged by central banking systems. While that sounds like it has revolutionary potential, we have to remember that at this point there is probably nothing in the world more centralized than Facebook and the only thing they can really be relied on to do at this point is lies about how they operate and what they do with their user information at every opportunity they get.Cynicism aside, what seems likely from all of this, and what many industry insiders are hoping, is that the Facebook foray into crypto will be an educational firebrand that will change the scale on which cryptocurrencies operate, and in doing so, greatly benefit the industry.As much as any “humanitarian” intention from any massive corporation must be taken with a grain of salt, what seems likely is that Facebook will end up further normalizing the idea of cryptocurrency and further legitimizing its practice. This would be beneficial both to the industry, and to consumers in general because once we are there, where crypto has anywhere near the user base as does Facebook, users will be able to see for themselves the advantages that using certain platforms would have for them.What about Apple?With the Facebook release impending, and other big names in tech also seemingly testing the crypto waters, in its buildup the release of Apple’s CryptoKit was looked at as a potential first demonstration in what was shaping up to be a crypto arms race.Despite the high expectations, Apple’s attitude towards crypto could hardly be characterized as anything above lukewarm. The CryptoKit rollout was not, at least externally, a showing of Apple’s newfound openness to the cryptocurrency, but rather just as it was billed, an in-depth rundown of the new developer tool with use cases, implementation tips and chunks of code on the presentation slides.Rather than being a game-changer in terms of adoption, the Apple toolkit was aimed at developers and general cryptography without any specific tie to cryptocurrency. But like we observed with Facebook, though here it is on a decidedly smaller scale, this is part of the process of normalization and de-stigmatization which could change the face of the industry we work in.From a personal standpoint, these developments are intriguing because these companies — with their long lists of humanitarian objectives and their longer lists of deceptions – will probably end up opening the door to projects like Bytecoin that will actually be able to offer the protection and power to individuals to which Facebook and its ilk are so eager to pay lip service.Max’s Corner: Apple and Facebook and the (Not So) Great Crypto Arms Race

Revolut Expands Apple Pay Support to 16 New Countries

Coinspeaker Revolut Expands Apple Pay Support to 16 New CountriesRevolut customers have long been asking for Apple Pay support in Europe. Now their time has come as Revolut announces that they are coming to UK, France, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Finland.These are great news, but at the same time, many countries are left out. Hopefully, Revolut continues to expand, and eventually will allow all European countries to operate with Apple Pay. How to Start Using the New Service?If you are a customer of Revolut, then you should already have a card by now. If not, don’t worry, Revolut offers the ability to issue virtual cards, which later can be turned to physical as well. Basically, you can add Apple Pay to Revolut either via the Revolut app, or the Apple Wallet on your iOS device. So you can add both – the virtual card and the physical card to Apple Wallet and start spending immediately. You don’t have to wait for the physical card to arrive.Arthur Johanet, the product owner for card payments at Revolut, said in a statement:“Revolut’s ultimate goal is to give our customers a useful tool to manage every aspect of their financial lives, and the ability to make payments quickly, conveniently and securely is vital to achieving this. Our customers have been requesting Apple Pay for a long time, so we are delighted to kick off our rollout, starting with our customers in 16 markets. This is a very positive step forward in enabling our customers to use their money in the way that they want to.” Apple Pay Gradually Expands Across Europe and the Middle EastAbout the same time with Revolut news, Apple Pay itself has gradually expanded to European and Middle East markets. In the past year, Apple Pay has now become available in Poland, Norway, Kazakhstan, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Saudi Arabia, Austria, and Iceland.But since yesterday, they had left out one particularly populous country which was waiting for Apple Pay all along. Yesterday Apple Pay went live in The Netherlands with Dutch bank ING leading the way. The Dutch bank will bring Apple’s digital payment system to its debit and credit card users.“ING customers can activate Apple Pay in the ING Mobile Banking App and add their debit card to the Wallet. Apple Pay works wherever it is possible to make contactless payments, in web shops and in apps,” says the announcement.Revolut Expands Apple Pay Support to 16 New Countries

WATCH: A Goldman Sachs Marcus exec explains why Apple is the perfect partner for their new credit card

  Apple was the perfect partner for Goldman Sachs' new credit card because of its focus on simplicity and putting the customer first, according to Omer Ismail, head of consumer digital finance in the Americas for Goldman's Marcus division. The only way to build a good business is to do right by customers, Ismail said on Monday at Business Insider's IGNITION: Transforming Finance event. Goldman developed its Marcus business by focusing on building an all-star team, not on bringing in "star athletes," he said.  Read the latest Goldman Sachs news here. Goldman Sachs' Marcus consumer division is one of the most closely watched businesses on Wall Street. Launched by the bank less than three years ago, it represents Goldman's first foray into retail banking and providing products to the "mass affluent."  Omar Ismail, who leads Marcus in the US, spoke on Monday at Business Insider's IGNITION: Transforming Finance event at the New York Stock Exchange about the bank's new credit card with Apple (and why hes not sweating profitability concerns), how Marcus' startup culture has spread throughout Goldman, and why it's changing its marketing strategy.  You can watch highlights from the talk here. Join the conversation about this story »

Digital tokens resurrect with value addition after crypto winter

According to OnChainFX, the top 1o legitimate exchanges deliver the trading volume for measuring the real trading volume of the digital assets. Data collected from the LONG HASH website revealed that the majority of tokens had declined to half of their value since attaining the ATH. The most shocking results came out for ETHLend, based on the Ethereum blockchain that used the digital tokens in the form of collateral for transactions. LONG HASH quoted that ETHLend offered a decentralized peer-to-peer smart contract lending in the crypto-ecosystem. The ETH-based token was trending as the investors were constantly using ETH for transactions, which led to its surge before the bear attacks on the market. Tokens such as Holo and Ravencoin maintained their value equivalent to 50% of their ATH as they were initiated after the 2017 bull run. It came as a surprise for crypto users after tokens like Binance Coin and ChainLink underwent resurgence to achieve their ATH, that was higher than the previous ATH mark. Source: LONG HASH As per the graph, tokens achieved their ATHs from December 2017 to January 2018 and then plummeted. Many of the investors missed out on this bull rush in the crypto market. As the market conditions did not remain the same for a longer duration, tokens slipped into the phase, commonly known as the crypto winter, among the digital asset enthusiasts. LONG HASH shared growth rate of ChainLink and tweeted, “Chainlink (LINK) is having a pretty good day”. Some tokens like BNB and LINK have been performing well and the community can take comfort from this.
