POTUS Donald Trump Should Embrace Blockchain To Truly Make America Great Again Says Block.One CEO

The CEO of Block.one, Brendan Blumer has recently asked the President of the United States, Donald Trump to look into Blockchain Technology as the next revolution in the Financial markets. If @realDonaldTrump embraces #blockchain with clear rules that promote innovation in financial markets and digital goods, the #USA will trailblaze the next age of digital prosperity — BrendanBlumer (@BrendanBlumer) January 7, 2019 This is not just provocative rhetoric, Blumer goes on to say how the implications f the technology should appeal to the conservative philosophies of the current administration. He goes on to define the characteristics of regulations, which should be done to make a breeding ground for innovations. “Regulations are mutually agreed sets of constraints designed to increase security, transparency, and interoperability of markets. Blockchain regulates data transmission and storage to accomplish the same digitally.” He goes on to say that in the current scenario, the system is over-regulated which is a major obstacle in technological progress. Actually, I’m a believer that lower regulatory environments are healthier for society, but governments and rules are required for humans to harmoniously share earth. — BrendanBlumer (@BrendanBlumer) January 6, 2019 Brendan then says that even the regulatory processes can become more transparent and fair if blockchain technology is implemented on it. #Blockchain can automate and enforce #regulation transparently — BrendanBlumer (@BrendanBlumer) January 6, 2019 Blumer runs one of the biggest Blockchain firms in the company, which makes him a prominent authority to ask the US authorities to change their archaic systems for the better. Recently this has been a problem in the country as the government has gotten too comfortable in implementing changes to make their system better. The Congress is being run by baby boomers who barely know who their smartphones work. Blumer thinks that if Donald Trump looks into the technology further, the can steer America to the “the next age of digital prosperity.”

EOS Records 10% Gains as Block.One CEO Talks About “Voter Rebates” for Its Block Producers

In a recent tweet uploaded by Brendan Blumer, the CEO of Block.one, he says that the EOS community should consider the introduction of voter rebates from BP candidates. This decision would have several positive effects on the network. In general, EOS received a strong critic related to its project and how it addressed the controversy related to its inability to tackle vote buying. On January 1st, he said that EOS should modify its constitution and allow block producers to pay dividends to users who provide to their stakes. The #EOS community should consider the introduction of voter rebates from BP candidates to introduce free market pricing to block production, drive more value back to token holders, and increase voter turnout. Unenforceable rules only hurt the compliant. — BrendanBlumer (@BrendanBlumer) January 1, 2019 Although the cryptocurrency market has recovered from the lowest point in more than a year, EOS was able to outperform other assets. After Ethereum (ETH), EOS is the best performing cryptocurrency among the top 10. In the last 24 hours, the digital currency grew 8.91% and it has a market capitalization of $2.59 billion. Each EOS coin can be purchased for $2.86. Since December 28, 2018, EOS has grown more than 20%. As the EOS network works with a distributed-proof-of-stake (DPoS), there are block producers rather than miners. Each EOS user can vote for its own BP candidates by staking tokens. The 21 largest stakes become BP. However, some issues arose when exchanges such as Huobi accepted kickbacks for voting specific entities for EOS decision makers. At the same time, Huobi, one of the most important virtual currency exchanges in term of trading volume announced in a press release that it will be creating an EOS-based derivative platform. Users will be able to open long and short positions using EOS. There will be other functionalities available on the platform using EOS.

Researches from MIT, Stanford Set to Replace Bitcoin with Their Groundbreaking Crypto Project

CoinSpeaker Researches from MIT, Stanford Set to Replace Bitcoin with Their Groundbreaking Crypto Project Until now, everybody has been talking about Bitcoin, the most popular and widely used digital currency. However, Bitcoin is unable to process thousands of transactions a second. Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), UC-Berkeley, Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Southern California, and the University of Washington have decided to fix such a weakness and develop a crypto asset better than Bitcoin. The researchers are working together as Distributed Technology Research (DTR), a non-profit organization based in Switzerland and backed by hedge fund Pantera Capital. The first initiative of Distributed Technology Research is the Unit-e, a virtual coin that is expected to solve bitcoin’s scalability issues while holding true to a decentralized model and process transactions faster than even Visa or Mastercard. Babak Dastmaltschi, Chairman of the DTR Foundation Council, said: “The blockchain and digital currency markets are at an interesting crossroads, reminiscent of the inflection points reached when industries such as telecom and the internet were coming of age. These are transformative times. We are nearing the point where every person in the world is connected together. Advancements in distributed technologies will enable open networks, avoiding the need for centralized authorities. DTR was formed with the goal of enabling and supporting this revolution, and it is in this vein that we unveil Unit-e.” According to the press release, Unit-e will be able to process 10,000 transactions per second. That’s worlds away from the current average of between 3.3 and 7 transactions per second for Bitcoin and 10 to 30 transactions for Ethereum. Joey Krug, a member of the DTR Foundation Council and Co-Chief Investment Officer at Pantera Capital, believes that a lack of scalability is holding back cryptocurrency mass adoption. He said: “We are on the cusp of something where if this doesn’t scale relatively soon, it may be relegated to ideas that were nice but didn’t work in practice: more like 3D printing than the internet.” The project’s ideology is firmly rooted in transparency, with a belief in open-source, decentralized software developed in the public interest with inclusive decision-making. The core team of the project is based in Berlin. To solve the scalability problem, DTR has decided to develop the Unit-e with parameters very close to Bitcoin’s design, but many things will be improved. Gulia Fanti, DTR lead researcher and Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, commented: “In the 10 years since Bitcoin first emerged, blockchains have developed from a novel idea to a field of academic research. Our approach is to first understand fundamental limits on blockchain performance, then to develop solutions that operate as close to these limits as possible, with results that are provable within a rigorous theoretical framework.” The launch of the Unit-e is planned for the second half of 2019.
