About the Conference

Last week I attended the very first Tech Conference Europe (TCE2019) organized by news publisher PICANTE.today. The conference was not crowded as I am used at academic conferences. However, 25 people being at the conference has an advantage that you can talk to each speaker and attendee personally.

During the conference, the panel discussions alternated with the talks. The panel discussions focused on broader topics such as current use and future evolution of the blockchain, AI, Fintech or VR. The topics were very interesting, but I had a feeling that the experts agree with each other and speak in unison more than I expect. I would be happier to hear more controversial stands, e.g., that blockchain can be misused and for example allows anonymously purchasing illegal goods over the Dark web.

The talks were narrower focused on the specific use of technology, e.g. blockchain, virtual reality or sound authentication. The talks focused on the products of the companies rather than explaining some novel idea or a breakthrough concept. Here, I present four topics that I found interesting to share.

Blockchain is a Tool

The hype behind the cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology seem to diminish since the news don’t report new ICO every day and use of the blockchain technology is not even observed by the end-user.

However, at the conference, I learned that there’s a lot of going on with blockchain technology and many companies implement blockchain in their products. E.g., the Porche company develops blockchain for secure communication with the vehicle. By using blockchain, which avoids communication with the server, opening and closing the car via an app is up to six times faster than before. Another example is BlueQbit, that uses blockchain technology for transportation and shipping. 

However, according to Lyle Wraxal, many startups duplicate existing ideas or use blockchain for blockchain because of the hype. These types of startups are likely to fail. They must realize that in order to succeed, they must have a clear idea about their product. And blockchain should be used as a tool to make the product more efficient, available or cheaper for the user. As Tomáš Žilavý from IBM mentioned also mentioned: “Blockchain must have an added value to the product to be useful.”

Besides the commercial sector, the government will also eventually implement the blockchain technology. But due to security reasons, the government is very cautious with the new technologies, so it may take a while. Recall how long it took for the government to use cloud technology or artificial intelligence.

The experts reckon that blockchain is in its infancy, similarly to the Internet in 1990. Soon we will observe outbursts of a lot of new blockchain use cases that we haven’t even imagined, similarly as with the Internet today.

“Blockchain must have an added value for startups. Don’t use it for the sake of hype” 

Tomáš Žilavý

Many organizations prepare for the blockchain” 

Dean Rakic

“Many startups duplicate and make blockchain for blockchain. They’ll fail” 

Lyle Wraxal

Cyborg: Expand Your Senses  

Manel Munoz, a founder of the Transpecies Society, showed how humans can have new senses. In contrast to typical chip implants, that allow you to open the doors or pay at the cash desk, members of the Transpecies Society aim to extend their senses beyond the limits of the human body. Manel has designed and implanted a so-called organ barometer that allows him to hear the air pressure around him. The organ is implanted in the occipital bone and quietly clacks the skull with a frequency depending on the measured air pressure. The bone conducts the clacking to his inner ear and he (and only he) experiences hearing of the clacking.

Other cyborgs at Transpecies Society similarly extended their senses to hear e.g. ultrasounds, to see beyond the visible spectrum, to feel earthquakes or gain cosmo-location ability (they have an implant in their finger, that vibrates each time they point at the desired planet).

At the conference, Manel presented his newest organ design, which additionally to barometer allows him hearing the air temperature and humidity.

When I work on the sense design I decide how the stimuli that I want to sense will be and when I work on the organ design I decide the shape that the new organ will have.” 

Munel Munoz

Audio Revelation

AI has shown its great power in many fields, such as classifying images by having an accuracy of up to 95%. In fact, it became so good, that humans have a higher error rate than algorithms. That’s why the competition after 2017 had to stop since the labels (ground truth about the image classes) were done by humans, have a higher error rate than AI.

Phonexia is a Czech startup that decided to use AI in a less explored but equally ubiquitous domain – the sound. They deliver speech technologies to many companies. At the conference, they demonstrated how their software can extract various information, such as speaker’s language detection, speaker gender extraction or age estimation just from the phone call. Additionally, they can make a voice-like fingerprint of the speaker which can be used in the future for user authentication. Next time you call the helpdesk, you may be authenticated just by your voice, without being stalled by questions such as what is your ID number or what is your grandmother’s maiden name.

This is a great example of extracting other useful information from the sound than the most researched area of translating speech-to-text. It is apparent, that sounds contain a lot of useful information that scientists still learn how to extract and use. E.g., another Czech startup Neuron Soundware, where I work as a senior researcher, takes advantage of a sound change between a working engine and an engine that is about to break. We use AI and engine sound to predict the engine failure before it happens, which allows companies to save a lot of costs connected with the production outage and late repairs.

Takeaway: Information retrieval from the sounds in still not fully explored and I think we are about to see more emerging AI companies, that learn to extract useful information from the sounds.

Beyond the Real World

Real estates are becoming less affordable than ever. In this conference, Somnium Space presented a solution to live in virtual reality.

Somnium Space presented their VR game played on 5 km2, where players can build anything they want, e.g. houses, museums, cinemas, on the properties that they possess. At first glance, this game is very similar to the Second Life idea. However, this game is not just entertainment! Players can actually make a decent profit in this game. 

They presented a couple of ways to make a revenue. E.g., a player can build their own entertainment center, e.g. roller coaster and charge other players for using it. Another way to place an object (such as TV, cars) with a non-intrusive advertisement on it and whenever other players interacts with an object, you are making money for online advertisement. Another way (which is far from being the last option), one can speculate on parcel prices and buy them in hope that their prices will rise.

Somnium Space has also found a way to use blockchain in their virtual world. All the player’s possessions are stored over the blockchain technology. So one can sell his properties through blockchain transactions and Somnium Space has no right for it.

Takeaway: Mixing VR technology with a revenue generator will allow players to be even more engaged in it. And for investors: if this game becomes popular, possessing real estate in this game could be a gold miner. On the other hand, there are a lot of other games where players can make decent money.

Conclusion

Karel Durkota at Tech Conference Europe

Overall, the conference was well prepared with interesting topics on the agenda. I didn’t see there many novel technical ideas, as it is in academic conferences, but it is expected that companies will not share their know-how but products and their use cases.

It is interesting to see, how startups create new products that use spectrum of different technologies in it (e.g. VR and blockchain) and explore new use cases (e.g. sound authentication). I think that more amazing and diverse technologies are still coming.

3 reasons why Reef Finance, Bridge Mutual and Morpheus Network are rallying

Republished by Plato

Published

on

As new institutional and retail investors enter the cryptocurrency space on a daily basis, large-cap top performers like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) attract the lion’s share of investor’s attention as they are the well-known ‘secure’ blockchain projects. 

Once these new investors get a taste of the mainstay cryptocurrencies and how to navigate the volatile markets, their attention soon turns to smaller cap coins as they search for the up-and-coming projects that could be the next big thing.

Currently, CoinMarketCap shows that there are 8,475 tokens and more are added daily. This makes it difficult to keep up with the latest developments and find solid projects with real-world potential.

With that in mind, here are some interesting projects that have been gaining strength over the past few weeks. 

MRPH/USDT

Morpheus Network (MRPH) is a blockchain platform focused on logistics and supply chain optimization through the use of its SaaS middleware platform which is integrated with emerging technologies.

Supply chain managers are able to use the platform to create a digital representation of their network as information collected is transformed into actionable data, with all steps in the supply chain being notarized on the Morpheus blockchain.

MRPH was trading at a price of $0.412 on Jan.15 before an influx of trading activity lifted the token more than 920% to a high of $4.44 on Feb.8.

The rapid rise in price was due in part to the fresh attention the project received from several well-known YouTube influencers and recent verifiable MRPH partnerships, such as China’s Qingdao Maple Leaf International Trading Co. and the possibility of a partnership with Coca-Cola in Latin America.

Speculations aside, the Morpheus platform currently has more than 100 integrations with industry-leading service providers including DHL, FedEx, SWIFT, Oracle, and Salesforce. With significant real-world partnerships and the attention of cryptocurrency influencers, MRPH has strong fundamentals and is likely to gain more attention from investors.

BMI/USDT

Bridge Mutual (BMI) is a more recent arrival to the decentralized insurance space but it has quickly garnered the attention of investors.

The insurance platform offers coverage for stablecoins, centralized exchanges and smart contracts. It also allows users to provide insurance coverage, determine insurance payouts, and recie compensated for taking part in the ecosystem.

BMI’s initial decentralized exchange offering (IDO) was conducted on Jan. 30 with a token price of $0.125 and it was first listed on Uniswap for $1.03. Since listing, BMI has rallied by 540% to a high of $5.46 on Feb. 3. Currently, BMI trades at $3.24 following the downturn in the market that began on Feb. 21.

Decentralized insurance has thus far been dominated by Nexus Mutual (NXM), but BMI’s arrival offers a fresh challenger to a field with growing demand due to the risky nature of investing in DeFi platforms.

REEF/USDT

Reef (REEF) is a Polkadot-based DeFi platform that aims to offer cross-chain trading powered by a yield engine and smart liquidity aggregator that enables automation of the exchange process.

One issue Reef developers hope to provide a solution for is high gas fees on the Ethereum blockchain that are currently making DeFi unusable for many community participants. The team also hopes to help connect liquidity pools from separate networks, avoiding the need for multiple accounts which can be difficult to keep track of.

Work on the project began in the second half of 2020 with the completion of its IDO on Sep.30. Following its listing on Binance and Uniswap in late December of 2020, REEF price bottomed out at $0.0067 on Jan.13 and has since increased more than 750% to a high of $0.054 on Feb.11.

DeFi remains one of the hottest growth areas in the cryptocurrency sector and Reef is well-positioned to capitalize on its continued growth. As the Polkadot ecosystem grows its user base and provides solutions that provide relief from high Ethereum transaction costs, cross-chain functionality projects like Reef stand ready to benefit as decentralized finance goes mainstream.

Bitcoin plunges, Ethereum suffers, Musk loses billions: Hodler’s Digest, Feb. 21–27

Republished by Plato

Coming every Saturday, Hodler’s Digest will help you track every single important news story that happened this week. The best (and worst) quotes, adoption and regulation highlights, leading coins, predictions and much more — a week on Cointelegraph in one link.

Top Stories This Week

Increasing stock market volatility drags Bitcoin and altcoin prices lower

Bitcoin has had an exceptionally trying week, and it doesn’t bode well for March — a month that’s traditionally bearish for the world’s biggest cryptocurrency.

After hitting record highs of $58,300 last Sunday, Bitcoin suffered a dramatic reversal of fortunes — crashing to $46,000 on Tuesday. Elon Musk might not have helped matters… in the run-up to the correction, he had tweeted that BTC and ETH seemed high.

Analysts and investors alike breathed a sigh of relief on Wednesday when Bitcoin managed to retake $50,000 — with some proclaiming that the asset had undergone a “healthy correction.” But this narrative proved shaky when BTC plunged yet again on Friday to lows of $44,454.84.

All of this comes amid a backdrop of unease in the traditional markets, and this week’s price activity suggests BTC faces an uphill struggle if it’s going to appreciate further. Generally, analysts are looking for $50,000 to become an established support before expecting any bullish continuation.

MicroStrategy purchases another $1 billion worth of Bitcoin, now owns 90,000 BTC

A flurry of good news throughout the week may have prevented things from going bad to worse for Bitcoin. Early in the week, two institutions announced they were doubling down on their BTC buy-ins. 

MicroStrategy purchased an additional 19,452 coins, with CEO Michael Saylor declaring that his company has no intention of slowing down. It came after Square announced it had purchased 3,318 BTC for $170 million — following on from a $50-million spending spree in October 2020.

Bitfinex and Tether also announced that they had reached a settlement with the New York attorney general, linked to ongoing allegations that Tether misrepresented the degree to which USDT stablecoins were backed by fiat collateral. Under the terms of the deal, both companies will have to pay $18.5 million in damages, report on their reserves periodically, and stop serving customers in the state.

On Friday, JPMorgan helped to cheer up the markets by telling clients that allocating 1% of a portfolio to Bitcoin would serve as a hedge against fluctuations in stocks, bonds and commodities.

Cardano is now a top-three cryptocurrency as ADA price soars 27% in 24 hours

Moving beyond Bitcoin, there’s been a lot of movement in the altcoin markets. 

Last week, Binance Coin had stolen the show with a stunning triple-digit surge that helped it become the world’s No. 3 cryptocurrency. Fast forward to this week, and it’s now been overtaken by Cardano’s ADA.

A fresh wave of optimism and buying volume on Friday pushed its price to a new all-time high, and momentum for the project has been building throughout February. Open interest for ADA futures also rose to $580 million, surpassing Litecoin to become the third-largest derivatives market.

Despite NFTs entering into a bull market — with a report suggesting that they’ll explode in popularity even more as 2021 continues — it’s definitely been a week to forget for Ether. After touching new all-time highs of $2,000 last weekend, ETH has tumbled by more than 26% this week… taking it below $1,500 at times.

All of this comes as an exodus from the Ethereum blockchain continues, with 1inch becoming the latest DeFi project to expand to Binance Smart Chain.

Musk no longer world’s richest man after Tesla and Bitcoin slump

As the old saying goes: “The sun don’t shine on the same dog’s ass every day.”

The sun was certainly shining on Elon Musk when the week began. One analyst had suggested that Tesla had made $1 billion in profit since making its Bitcoin investment. That’s more than the profit generated by selling electric vehicles (what it’s known for) across the whole of 2020.

Alas, that was before the carnage seen on the crypto markets. To make matters worse, Tesla’s share price has dropped by more than 20% from the highs of $890 seen on Jan. 26. These joint factors prompted Musk to lose his crown as the world’s richest man. Some analysts wasted little time in attributing TSLA’s crash to its association with Bitcoin.

But there’s another threat on the horizon, with reports suggesting that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission could investigate Musk’s alleged impact on BTC and DOGE through his many, many tweets.

The billionaire made a concerted effort to shrug off these concerns, suggesting he would even welcome such a probe.

Coinbase has held Bitcoin on its balance sheets since 2012

We’ve been learning a lot more about Coinbase this week as it gears up to launch on the stock market. One particular hipster-ish announcement came when the exchange declared that it’s held Bitcoin and other cryptos on its balance sheet for nine years.

Coinbase sought to package this announcement as a paean to other corporations that might be considering a similar move — touting itself as an authority in advising institutions about how to deal with their own prospective investments.

In other news, the company submitted its S-1 report to the Securities and Exchange Commission this week. The filing revealed that the exchange generated revenues of $1.1 billion in 2020 — 96% of which came from transaction fees. Net income in 2020 came in at $327 million… a stark contrast to the $46 million loss seen the year before.

Winners and Losers

At the end of the week, Bitcoin is at $46,609.99, Ether at $1,470.17 and XRP at $0.43. The total market cap is at $1,429,222,267,885.

Among the biggest 100 cryptocurrencies, the top three altcoin gainers of the week are Fantom, Pundi X and Cardano. The top three altcoin losers of the week are Dodo, Horizen and Venus.

Prediction of the Week

1 billion people will store life savings on their phone in Bitcoin by 2026 — MicroStrategy CEO

We love an outlandish prediction here at Hodler’s Digest… and Michael Saylor certainly delivered the goods this week.

The MicroStrategy CEO declared that Bitcoin will be the savings method of choice for a staggering 1 billion people in just five years’ time. That’s despite the fact that just 21 million BTC exist… and his company already owns 90,000 of it.

Saylor’s comments came after U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen launched her latest attack on Bitcoin, describing it as “inefficient.”

In a confident interview with CNBC, he declared that Bitcoin “is the dominant digital monetary network,” adding: “I think you can expect that we’ll have a billion people storing their value — in essence, a savings account — on a mobile device within five years, and they’re going to want to use something like Bitcoin.”

FUD of the Week 

Bill Gates warns Bitcoin buyers: If you have less money than Elon Musk, watch out

Microsoft founder Bill Gates had a big warning for Bitcoin buyers this week.

Speaking to Bloomberg, he warned: “Elon has tons of money, and he’s very sophisticated so, you know, I don’t worry that his Bitcoin would randomly go up or down.”

Gates said it would be a mistake for the average investor to blindly follow the mania of optimism surrounding Musk’s market moves, telling those who aren’t billionaires to “watch out.” 

Criticizing Bitcoin’s energy consumption, he added: “I do think people get drawn into these manias who may not have as much money to spare. So, I’m not bullish on Bitcoin, and my general thought would be: If you have less money than Elon, you should probably watch out.”

This isn’t to say that Gates thinks digital currencies are a bad thing. He just believes that they should be transparent, reversible and (essentially) centralized.

Whale who sold Bitcoin before 2020 crash cashed out $156 million before this week’s 20% dip

As you’d expect, a post-mortem is now fully underway after this week’s carnage in the crypto markets.

Curiously, data from Santiment suggests that the initial crash may have been linked to a huge transaction that took place after Sunday’s all-time high of $58,300. The transfer of 2,700 BTC — worth $156 million at the time — was the second-biggest transaction of 2021.

It’s possible that this whale cashing out contributed to unbearable selling pressure in the market, which snowballed into the largest one-hour candle in Bitcoin’s history. If enough alarm bells weren’t ringing, this self-same wallet also dumped 2,000 BTC just before last March’s infamous flash crash.

Crypto influencer warns Ethereum fees will drive users away

A prominent crypto influencer has warned that Ethereum’s competitors will continue to siphon away users should Eth2 fail to launch soon amid ever-increasing gas fees.

Lark Davis said Ethereum’s skyrocketing fees has meant that only “rich investors” can afford to use the network, prompting smaller users to switch to competitors like Binance Smart Chain. 

Describing the current gas fee prices as “totally loco,” Davis urged Ethereum developers to expedite the launch of Eth2 in response to the skyrocketing to prevent a further exodus of users to cheaper alternatives.He added: “We’re now to the point where ETH 1.0 — oh, we need ETH 2.0 so soon, come on, Vitalik, get it going, man — ETH 1.0, most regular users are priced out of using the majority of applications on Ethereum. […] A transaction on Uniswap costs $50 on average these days, and that is just crazy.”

Nym: The World’s First Generic Incentivized Mixnet Releases its Whitepaper 

Republished by Plato

Published

on

[PRESS RELEASE – Please Read Disclaimer]

In a time when mass surveillance and data harvesting are ever present and not a day goes by without news of companies selling user data for profit, Nym Technologies is building a next generation privacy network that can change the way people use the internet.

Chelsea Manning, a famous whistleblower and technologist, says “As methods for network traffic analysis have dramatically improved in the last decade, I have frequently called for research (most notably in 2016) into alternative methods to Tor that avoid exposing the data within the network to such analysis. Nym is one such viable alternative worthy of research, and developmental implementation.”

Nym was conceived in 2017 and was the first privacy project to receive funding from Binance Labs in 2018, followed by a $2.5M raise from other well known investors. Today, the actual design of Nym has been made public after extensive review by technologists like Chelsea Manning, academics like Carmela Troncoso, and venture capital firms like Polychain Capital.

Carmela Troncoso (EPFL) notes “I spent a long part of my career working on improving mix-based anonymous communications systems. It is thrilling to see how the Nym team, a unique combination of expert software engineers and privacy experts, have made mixnets a reality.”

The Nym network is a generic, decentralized, and incentivized infrastructure that provides privacy to a broad range of applications and services, including any blockchain. A core component of Nym is a mixnet that protects the metadata of the internet packets sent to it with privacy superior to both VPNs and Tor.

Metadata is “data about data”, and includes IP addresses of the users, geolocations, information about who talked to who, when, and how often. All of this metadata can be monetized or used without users knowledge. Now it can be protected by Nym.

Anyone can join the network by running a node and get rewarded in NYM tokens for providing privacy to the network. Nodes do useful work anonymizing packets for users and services.

NYM tokens can be transformed into anonymous credentials that allow users to privately prove their “right to use” of services in a decentralized and verifiable manner. This allows users to be private at the network level as well as the application layer. Cosmos and the European Commission are amongst the many who have been supporting the use of Nym’s anonymous credentials.

The 3rd-party applications and services that can integrate their systems to the Nym network to protect their users from malicious actors and preserve their privacy range from crypto apps (wallets or DeFi projects) to messaging applications, IoT devices, or literally any data transfers over the internet that can leak metadata.

Currently, Nym is running an incentivized testnet with a 1500 capped number of nodes on the Liquid network, but this limit will raise in the next major release due to the high demand of people who want to join the network and test its features out.

Throughout human history, privacy has been considered a great asset and a prerequisite for freedom. However as privacy was not built into the fabric of the internet, power is now in the hands of a few powerful players. Nym is setting off to change this and give power back to users so they can decide if and how they reveal their data. To know more about the technicalities, read the whitepaper or join the Nym Telegram channel to stay up to date.
