Willis Lease and FLYdocs Spearheading Development of Blockchain Powered Aviation Records Platform

COCONUT CREEK, Fla., Feb. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Willis Lease Finance Corporation (WLFC) and FLYdocs have joined forces to develop a pilot program demonstrating the use of blockchain technology on an open source data sharing platform for aircraft, engine and component records. The two powerhouses are engaging in what they anticipate will be widely regarded as a pioneering move in the digital transformation of the aviation industry. Blockchain has already established a reputation in the financial sector as the core technology underpinning virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, and this initiative between WLFC and FLYdocs seeks to explore similar benefits within aviation. The cutting-edge development attempts to be the first real use of a blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) solution for managing commercial aircraft, engines and component transitions. The sharing economy created by this new cloud-based platform would present an opportunity to decentralize data exchange, eliminate silos and create a transparent environment for collaboration, with added value distribution for airlines, industry partners, vendors, manufacturers and regulators. Users of the platform can expect reduced friction in the transfer of assets, purchases, leases and sales of aircraft. An added benefit of this collaborative ecosystem will be the provision of anonymity in the data, allowing for complete trust between users, so they drive their own big data analysis initiatives rather than relying on the OEM or third-parties. Charles F Willis, Chairman & CEO of WLFC, noted: "The fundamental goal of this pilot project is to provide increased data integrity, record immutability and security to the aviation industry. Blockchain and its associated technologies will cultivate a marketplace for the sharing of technical and performance information in a cost-efficient and transparent way. Although Willis Lease and FLYdocs are acting as the architects for the development of this communal platform, users will be able to ...Full story available on Benzinga.com

XRP managed to weather off the bearish engulfing at the dawn of 19th as the bulls managed to strike a price reversal on the upwards and pushed the currency price to a new high of 0.35499. This didn’t last for long though as the bears came calling and pulled the price down to a low of 0.32820. Later, a death cross pattern was formed when the 21 day MA crossed over the 7 day MA seemingly signaling that the price would fall down even further. True to this, the bears pulled the price further down to a low of 0.32363. XRP Forecast Looking at the Moving averages, it seems that an intertwining is imminent.The RSI is between 40 and 60, seemingly portraying that the currency is set to trade sideways. This scenario would be ideal for an intra-range strategy with support levels at 0.32363 and resistance at 0.3521. BTC/USD The price of BTC seems to be striving to achieve and outlive the 4000 territory. Even though there have been instances on the last 24 hours when the bears have pulled the priced below the 4000 mark, the price is currently above $3980 with its next target set for $4000. The RSI is at around 60 seemingly signifying that the price should be headed for consolidation before the next rally. The 7 day and 21 day MAs are also seemingly getting intertwined.

Crypto Firm Gladius Tattles on Itself Before SEC Brings Down the Hammer

The SEC acknowledged a settlement with Gladius Network LLC today. Gladius raised almost $13 million in an ICO at the height of the crypto boom, from October to December 2017. The company tattled on itself last August, self-reporting potential violations to the SEC. As a result, the regulator has been gracious enough to opt not to impose additional financial penalties on Gladius. The catch? Gladius has to offer refunds on all ICO tokens. Gladius Reports Itself to the SEC The settlement is similar to the agreement NEO reached with Chinese regulators.

Elon Musk Praises Bitcoin: “Paper Money is Soon Going Away”

Notorious billionaire and entrepreneur Elon Musk once again expressed his enthusiasm for cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies in the latest episode of ARK Invest’s FYI podcast: “On the Road to Full Autonomy With Elon Musk,” courtesy: bitcoin.com In an interview for Tasha Keeney, Musk pointed out several advantages that cryptocurrencies have over traditional fiat money. For Musk, the future of finance goes hand by hand with a global adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. Musk supported Jack Dorsey’s idea that Bitcoin could become the native currency of the internet. This notion, which he described as “interesting” has been shared by several influencers such as Tone Vays, Jimmy Song and Max Keiser, who consider that although altcoins have important uses, Bitcoin is the best candidate to become the equivalent of money 2.0. Elon Musk: Bitcoin is The Future… But We’re Not There Yet However, aware that there is still a long way to go for cryptocurrencies to replace fiat money, Musk commented that at the moment he does not plan to invest in developments related to this technology, or even experiment with its use in Tesla: “I think that the Bitcoin structure was quite brilliant, it seems like there’s some merit to Ethereum as well, and maybe some of the others. But, I’m not sure if it would be a good use of Tesla resources to get into crypto.” Musk pointed out that one of the advantages of using crypto is precisely that it gives users the freedom to carry out financial transactions without the restrictions imposed by banks or government agencies. When Keeney commented that certain governments impose restrictions on some inhabitants, Musk pointed out precisely that the cryptos were born to combat this excessive control and that in the future, fiat money as we know it “is going away.” “It bypasses currency controls. Paper money is going away, and crypto is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper.” Musk has had a presence in the community for his optimistic statements and vision of the role blockchain technologies will play in the society of the future. Previously during the scams boom on Twitter, Musk jokingly commented  At this point, I want ETH even if it is a scam — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) August 28, 2018 The post Elon Musk Praises Bitcoin: “Paper Money is Soon Going Away” appeared first on Ethereum World News.
