Blokechain back in town! Check out our Live Video Recordings from Disney’s Epcot

Like a pair of drunken Doctor Whos, Mark and Ian travel back in time and travel around the world to bring you the blockchain news and views.

It’s been a whole year since Mark Beauchamp and Ian Collins got involved with the Blockchain Show team.

To commomorate our anniversary, and to celebrate Ian’s birthday The Blokes meet up at Disney’s Epcot, have some cheeky beers, deploy some rather dubious accents and borderline xenophobia, and visit each country in the World Showcase, to see video of what’s going on in the Blockchain space visit the show notes

In his second book, "The Age of Anomaly" Andrei Polgar predicts the next global financial crisis. The worst part is, the average person will most likely be blindsided due to a complete lack of basic financial preparedness.
 
Andrei is one of the few economists out there who specializes in
exotic assets such as domain names (perhaps the only economist who covered the short domain mania of 2015-2016) and, of course, crypto. http://oneminuteeconomics.com/
 
Blockchain Show co-hosts Ian Collins and Ethan discuss topics such as cryptocurrencies and Blockchain in the context of the
next global financial crisis.

Decentralized ledgers are secure and unbreakable until…. quantum computing. The Quantum Supremacy race between China, USA and Europe is on…Quantum computers are coming faster than anticipated.

Adam Koltun, Evangelist for the Quantum Resistant Ledger and Co-Hosts Ian and Ethan discuss the Quantum technology threat and security challenges for distributed ledgers and what it means for the current cryptocurrency landscape.

 
  • The reality of a adding Quantum resistance to existing blockchains. (Hint: It is easier to implement changes in the initial codebase than to add them later.)

  • We don’t need (should not) to wait for Quantum Supremacy

  • A single actor could disrupt the cryptocurrency economy at any time

  • Companies are making a lot of public progress / while Government programs have likely made more progress than they advertise

  • Upgrading in cryptocurrency is not easy. BTC is an example of political struggles

  • The future quantum resistant ledger

Robin is the co-founder and CEO of HelloGold. HelloGold is a start-up that creates simple and accessible Gold products for everyone. Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, HelloGold built the world’s first Shariah compliant gold digital application that changes the way you buy and sell gold.

HelloGold is developing an application using blockchain for the mass market, where end users benefit from the application of the technology without needing in-depth knowledge of the underlying technology. In the long term, customers will be provided the option of converting their vaulted gold to a digital gold token (GBT). This will enable customers to use the stored gold as value beyond the HelloGold System. Once the digital gold tokens (GBT) are successfully traded on exchanges, the tokens will be available for purchase. This will create a stable cryptocurrency fully backed by physical investment grade gold. Further information about HelloGold can be found at www.hellogold.com.

Minds is an open-source social media platform that puts individual users first. The world needs a top social network to be free, open source, decentralized, encrypted, reward-based and powered by the people.

Minds has all the same capabilities as other social media platforms. However we’ll hear from Bill why he would prefer to contrast with Facebook rather than compare.

The new ecosystem has extensive privacy features, including a non-tracking ad network, encrypted messenger, and an anonymity option.  Its blockchain offers a crypto wallet, tipping for creators, a daily pool of tokens granted to users who contribute the most to the network, and peer-to-peer advertising.

Additionally we hear how Minds users are starting to drop the big F…in your Face(book) Zuck!

In addition Minds offers many more features, including monetization.

For example users can earn points for all their activities and can either sell or use those points to boost posts. Creators can set tiers of rewards with corresponding token amounts. If supporters choose to send funds on a monthly recurring basis they can access exclusive content (behind paywall) and other custom rewards that creators choose. Creators can be paid directly through their channel or through each piece of specific content. Content creators will also be able to earn tokens through our rewards system for their contributions to the network, which include receiving votes, comments, shares, gaining subscribers and referring new users.

Free Stuff!

Badminton, Bearskins, Blockchain and “Bants”.

Mark is back on the (short) road to Blockchain Event town – London – in this episode.

Mark talks with Mick Hagen, founder and CEO of Mainframe, enjoys the build up to the 8pm live physical AirDrop and then gets caught in the frenzy for balloons and plastic tokens (I didn’t get one…)

Mick is one of those fabled creatures who do enormously well in the tech industry – a drop out from a major college. But he’s no Pied Piper of unfulfilled promise.

We chat about Web 3.0, the future of communication on the Blockchain, how we still sense good in the world, distributed teams and distributed technology and why there are still many reasons to be excited by Blockchain.

Scalability is likely that the biggest obstacle to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers. Last week, a team of ex-blockchain developers emerged from stealth mode with a unique solution: remove the block from the blockchain.

Enter Constellation. We are joined today by CTO Wyatt Meldman-Floch and Zac Russell the Head of Marketing. 

This team knows the problems of legacy blockchain protocols first hand. Upon experiencing the congestion of the Ethereum blockchain during a previous attempt to build a DApp, they pivoted to build, from the ground up, a platform protocol that relies on a horizontally scalable directed acyclic graph (DAG).

Not only does the Constellation team predict the realization of a transaction throughput several thousand times faster than most blockchains, but they believe they can achieve such speeds without the use of the plutocratic proof-of-stake mechanisms.

Visit Constellationlabs.io where you can learn more about the following:

  • Why scalability is the key to mainstream adoption of decentralized ledgers

  • The reasons why legacy blockchain networks will not be able to upgrade sufficiently

  • The dangers of blockchain plutocracy and the need to make nodes accessible to the layman

As we learn how our data is manipulated by Facebook and their thousands of clients, a Blockchain solution emerges thanks to Brian Gallagher's Insights Network which is launching their app this week. The app allows users to get rewarded in cryptocurrency (INSTAR, Insights' token) for sharing their personal data for things like surveys, instead of it being harvested and sold without their knowledge. With the Facebook data/Cambridge Analytica story and the upcoming GDPR in Europe, the issue of data protection is front and center. Insights Network seeks to give consumers the ability to control and be rewarded for their data.
