Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Atomic swaps, an innovation considered competent enough to transform modern-day trading systems, take cryptocurrency or token trading to a new level by eliminating the need for trade fees while conducting a transaction that is safe and secure. A smart contract technology powered by cryptography, atomic swap helps in conducting trade while ensuring that no party involved in the trade cheats or defaults.

Practical Advice for Solidity Developers

Found: 6/21/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
An average of 20,000 Smart Contracts is created every day. Over 3 Million Smart Contracts were created in November and December 2018 alone! A report shows that 60% of all Ethereum contracts have never been interacted with, less than 10% of all created contracts are unique, and less than 1% of the contracts have the source code available. Another report shows that over 25% of all Smart Contracts created have some kind of bug ??. Today, we’ll mention a couple of things which can help you build better Smart Contracts!

Simply Explained: Blockchain Scalability Solutions — Past, Present, and Future

Found: 6/18/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
When Bitcoin first launched in 2009 it became clear that, by design, it traded off transaction speed for decentralization and security. Each block contained ~1mb of transactions. It took about 10 minutes to produce each new block. And it took another 45–60 minutes before you were sure your transaction had made it through.

Sidechains vs Plasma vs Sharding

Found: 6/13/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
One question that often comes up is: how exactly is sharding different from sidechains or Plasma? All three architectures seem to involve a hub-and-spoke architecture with a central “main chain” that serves as the consensus backbone of the system, and a set of “child” chains containing actual user-level transactions. Hashes from the child chains are usually periodically published into the main chain (sharded chains with no hub are theoretically possible but haven’t been done so far; this article will not focus on them, but the arguments are similar). Given this fundamental similarity, why go with one approach over the others?

Ethereum 2.0 Deposit Merkle Tree

Found: 6/13/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Sparse Merkle tree is a strategy of calculating a Merkle root in a reduced memory space. The computation is constrained but by a clever algorithm that allows the root calculation to be a single contiguous calculation. Overall computation necessary for root calculation is increased but, it is an incremental root calculation distributed across multiple deposit method invocations.

The 4 Do’s of Building a Blockchain Use Case

Found: 6/13/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
I utterly love those Houston cocktail parties. They’re indeed full of surprises. Inside my Uber on the way to a private function last Saturday, I would have never imagined meeting Mexico’s top-concerts promoter and explaining to him how Blockchain technology can potentially streamline his operations, while eliminating those greedy middlemen. Yes, those intermediaries, who feed off the artists and revenue from ticket sales… So, I figured I’d share with you what I shared with him, while sipping a glass of delicious tequila.

An economic model for stable crypto-assets

Found: 6/7/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Citation: "Blockchain technology reduces the time and cost of sending money across borders avoiding banking networks. But which crypto-asset are we going to use in the next years for bill payments, shopping or taking a loan? I already talked about what a token is, how you can develop your own economy based on this technology, but I never wrote about the problem we are issuing today: the need of a stable crypto-asset. Central banks, big companies, even Facebook announced these days they are building their own payment crypto-asset. I will make sure you understand what this implies. In this article I will cover the next points:"

A taxonomy of token models and valuation methodologies

Found: 6/5/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Citation: "Over the last 18 months, our collective understanding of token economics has progressed significantly. To be clear, we’re still at the very initial stages of the burgeoning field of token economics (also known as crypto-economics or tokenomics) and there is still a huge amount of work to be done."

Solving Identity For The New Decentralized Economy

Found: 6/3/2019
Finder: Blockchaindex robot
Citation: "As we shift into a world where cryptocurrencies are expected to play a pivotal role in the global markets, traditional identification methods are now the bottlenecks. Traditional identification has been a tool that allowed citizens to tap into the current economic system and authenticate their contributions back to society. With the rise of the internet, economic and data activity shifted to the online world and into the hands of major platforms. The major oligopolies are now harnessing data and identities to better understand what services humans may or may not want in the future. Can humans trust the oligopolies that the data they are willfully giving is being safeguarded from malicious behavior?"
