January 7, 2021 – Iristick, a provider of augmented reality (AR) smart glasses developed for industry, and Harvest Technology Group Limited, a provider of remote communication technologies, have announced that they have entered into an agreement to commence proof of concept trials for integration of Harvest’s Infinity Nodestream and Wearwolf technology into Iristick’s industrial smart glasses.

Harvest Technology Group Limited is an Australian operated group of companies whose portfolio includes Harvest Technology Pty Ltd and Harvest Infinity Pty Ltd. Harvest Technology is a bespoke subsea technology solutions provider for the energy, resources, and renewables sectors. Harvest Infinity is an innovation company developing remote control, communication, automation and monitoring solutions.

The initial agreement will continue development of the integration of the Company’s Infinity Wearwolf application into Iristick smart glasses, embedding them with the Infinity Nodestream video encryption and streaming protocols.

Wearwolf is a software application version of the Infinity Nodestream encoding platform designed to run on wearable and smartphone mobile devices. According to Harvest, Wearwolf enables live secure point-to-point video and communications at ultra-low bandwidths and over poor quality or congested networks. Video and audio can be transferred as low as 32 kbps, allowing users to communicate directly to a Nodestream decoding device.

Prototype testing was completed during December 2020 where the Wearwolf application was successfully combined with the Iristick software development kit (SDK) on a smartphone and proved to work with the cameras, microphone and screen on the Iristick smart glasses. The companies stated that trial communications were successfully made and maintained between Perth, Australia and Brussels, Belgium at 128kbps.

Harvest states that a final commercial product is planned for launch during the first quarter of 2021 and will communicate point-to-point with Nodestream mini decoding devices and the soon-to-be released Nodestream downloadable decoder software application, which will run on laptops and desktop computers.

“We are very excited to be involved in a relationship with Iristick and look forward to our joint opportunities in the future. The synergies between our two companies are synonymous with a motivation to deliver high-quality remote communications and assistance from anywhere in the world”, said Paul Guilfoyle, Company Group Managing Director at Harvest Technology Group. “We have successfully proven our Wearwolf application on multiple wearable platforms and we are confident it can be quickly adapted for use across other wearable devices. Given the expected growth in the wearables market, we are forecasting more than 1,000 new Wearwolf licenses in 2021.”

Johan De Geyter, Iristick CEO, commented: “The global pandemic kickstarted the use of remote assistance via smart glasses as a solution to keep enterprise operations running under strict travel bans and contact restrictions. As field workers are sometimes confronted with low or no Wi-Fi connection, this collaboration can overcome that issue and make remote assistance available over low bandwidth, at any possible location, ensuring workers stay connected at any time.”

Denarius Announces Beta of Kronos Wallet and Private Decentralized Chat

Kronos, a new application beta from the developers of Denarius (D), provides people a way to socialize and transact without a central authority. This new proof of concept takes decentralization, blockchain and privacy to the next level.

“Blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum have paved the way of innovation for cryptocurrencies and new applications like Denarius (D): Kronos, to bridge the gap for a faster and cheaper way to transact and utilize cryptocurrency.” — James R. (Cryptocurrency User)

Kronos, a new application beta from the developers of Denarius (D), provides people a way to socialize and transact without a central authority. This new proof of concept takes decentralization, blockchain, and privacy to the next level. “Users” are able to freely join the Kronos Chat platform, as it is redundantly available due to it using peer-to-peer technology. Kronos has no downtime or possible banning of the platform. Examples of this in current history include, Amazon Web Services (AWS) taking down the Parler app’s platform hosting [1]. Google Play Store and Apple App Store removing the Parler application [2]. Signal App going offline [3]. Whatsapp invasion of privacy [4]…the list goes on.

Kronos is a secure cryptocurrency wallet but also chat reinvented. With the Kronos Chat you can chat and send cryptocurrency across the world in seconds. End-to-end encrypted messages and no storage of your chats, anywhere. Kronos Chat is powered by YOU by leveraging the latest peer-to-peer technologies. Censorship is everywhere and increasing daily. Kronos Wallet allows you to be truly free, with “self-moderation” you finally have the power to choose your own censorship while you socialize. Kronos stores only required data securely and locally, not on an unknown centralized server in the cloud. Kronos supports optional Two Factor Authentication (2FA) and One-time Password (OTP) Yubikey authentication and uses BIP39 technology for your cryptocurrency wallet with the most advanced and leading encryption technologies available today.

Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to solve the Byzantine Generals Problem, but transactions are slow. Ethereum created a smart contract platform, but transaction fees are expensive. Denarius stayed true to its roots by forking the original Bitcoin Satoshi code and modified the coin to become a faster and cheaper alternative to Bitcoin. Now Denarius with Kronos changes things. BTC, ETH, and D coins can be sent using the Kronos Wallet with more cryptocurrencies and tokens being added soon, possibly USDC, USDT, Namecoin (NMC), Devault (DVT), Primecoin (XPM), etc. Interplanetary File System (IPFS) integration and file uploading directly inside of the Kronos Chat also allows the user to upload files such as documents, images, and media directly inside of Kronos, ready to be shared via the plethora of IPFS public gateways available.

Weiss analysts on Bitcoin rally: it’s shaping up to be déjà-vu all over again

Republished by Plato

Published

on

For a while now, Bitcoin has remained above the $30,000 range even though the asset saw one of the most “dramatic drops” compared to altcoins, over the past week. While some traders gave into FUD, others thought BTC could fall as low as $26,000. But a significant number of people in the space are waiting for this “temporary” setback to clear the path for another rally. 

Recently, crypto rating company Weiss joined the discussion to make some rather bullish predictions. According to Juan Villaverde and Bruce Ng, analysts at Weiss, this year could repeat 2017 market conditions – “when Bitcoin blasted up more than 21-fold.” They explained:    

BTC stood at $29,000 on Jan. 1. Even if it only goes up only half as much as in 2017, it’s still going to top $325,000! Either way, it’s shaping up to be déjà-vu all over again …

The duo believed that institutional investors could fuel a rally that could increase the price of Bitcoin to $325k within this year.

Further, Weiss noted the asset’s hard cap at 21 million would allow prices to increase even as demand grows. According to the team, crypto markets “routinely” experience exponential parabolic uptrends, which come crashing down, however only to recover and surge. 

Nevertheless, the past week saw two contrasting views with regard to the space. On one hand, traders chose altcoins over Bitcoin. The other, Grayscale and MicroStrategy raked up more BTC, clearly taking advantage of a dip in prices. 

Recently, a Deutsche Bank survey found that Bitcoin is expected to halve than double in value. A majority of respondents also believed that the crypto was closing in on “extreme bubble” territory.

However,  the team at Weiss countered the bubble theory and said: 

Every time a crypto bubble pops, valuations never actually come back down to where they were before.

That’s because each successive bubble brings in new people, many of which never leave.

In fact, this is how the crypto universe grows: By sucking new people in during bull runs. Then, by consolidating and expanding infrastructure during the bear markets that inevitably ensue.

Popular analyst prefers altcoins LINK, UNI, others during Bitcoin & Eth’s correction phase

Republished by Plato

After reaching all-time highs, both Bitcoin and Ether have faced a wave of correction; while the former seems to be stagnated, the latter slid further. Experts believe the current dip in prices is a temporary setback and even a healthy pullback before Bitcoin and Ether reach higher ranges.

However, a popular trader and crypto analyst plans to invest in more altcoins instead of purchasing the leading digital assets.

The analyst, @smartcontracter took to Twitter and stated that he would rather invest in project tokens that are native to Aave, Synthetix, Cream, Chainlink, Uniswap, SushiSwap, and Perpetual Protocol.

Earlier, the trader happened to make an accurate prediction on the 2018 Bitcoin’s bear market bottom. The analyst now claims that if Bitcoin falls below the 33,000 range, the asset could head to the $26,000 mark. Additionally, SmartContracter cited another analyst who noted the present correction scenario and predicted Bitcoin’s supposed dip to $26,000, especially after retesting “39-40k”.

Longhash recently revealed that in the last seven days, 92% of crypto tokens “outperformed Bitcoin.” Even though altcoins seem to perform better than Bitcoin, at the moment, no crypto would be able to replace Bitcoin, given its large market capitalization.

As Longhash researches stated, Ethereum may have been up 22% against Bitcoin in the past week, but “Ether’s market cap could quadruple and it would still be behind Bitcoin.”

Nevertheless, at press time, Bitcoin and Ether were trading at 32,366 and $1,227 respectively. On the other hand, the trader’s choice of cryptos are now worth: AAVE ($190.55), SNX ($14.06), CREAM ($156.66), LINK ($21.64). UNI is trading at $8.69, SUSHI at $6.67 and PERP at $5.27.
