Understanding Ethereum, Bitcoin’s Virtual Cousin

Understanding Ethereum, Bitcoin’s Virtual Cousin

  • The Ethereum network has its own virtual currency, Ether.
  • The shared records of the Ethereum network — of every transaction and computation it has ever performed — are known as a blockchain, just as the shared records of all Bitcoin transactions are known as a blockchain.
  • The versions of the Ethereum software that companies are building will most likely be used to set up private networks that would be totally separate from the public Ethereum network and that would not use the Ether currency.
  • Just as with Bitcoin, Ethereum are “mined,” or created by computers joined into the Ethereum network.
  • As with Bitcoin, Ethereum mining serves a dual process of getting new Ether into the world while providing an incentive for people to join the network and help maintain the Ethereum blockchain.

Ethereum has attracted broad interest from both hackers and corporations with its updates on Bitcoin.

How To Increase Your Success With ICOs

  • With basically everyone threatened by cyber attacks, password breaches, identity theft and IoT security risks, the Authoreon solutions are of great importance to those, who want to protect themselves, their families and businesses against enormous security risks and, in the end, massive financial losses.
  • Authoreon aims to reduce those numbers dramatically by introducing its unique and proprietary Synapse and Access Lock layers on top of the Ethereum blockchain which enables its customers to secure their privacy, identity and ownership against any cyber crimes.
  • Now you’ll want to give a taste test to their business model and the way they’ll be using their tokens and if there is any validity in what they’re doing.
  • Fourth, you’ll want to consider whether the value of the token at the time of ICO is worth it.
  • But they’ve just duct-taped the concept of a token onto the side of their business model and it doesn’t make much sense.

I’m not sure if you saw the news recently, but ICOs or Initial Coin Offerings have surpassed VC funding for the past two months. Which is kind of …

Blockchain Technology’s Next Big Superstar

  • First off, when doing an ICO, a company should develop its own tokens, which requires an in-depth understanding of blockchain principles and technology.
  • In order to further legitimize the ICO process, Sasha founded Waves in 2016, an open source cryptocurrency platform that allows individuals to issue and transfer custom blockchain tokens, and trade them on an integrated peer-to-peer exchange.
  • Other notable and unique ICOs hosted on the Waves Platform has been ZrCoin, which offers the first ever blockchain option for investing in the production of a high-demand industrial material.
  • Blackmoon Crypto [RW1] also launched their ICO on the Waves Platform, seeking to bridge the gap between cryptocurrency and conventional investments.
  • However, as more companies and individuals adopt blockchain technology, the benefits of doing an ICO will become more apparent.

ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) are on the rise, as more startups turn towards blockchain-based platforms to raise funds. Just during the first half of 201…

Companies are buying bitcoin to pay off hackers, says top cybersecurity CEO

  • The HBO hack is just one recent example of how cyberattackers are now targeting corporations, and CyberArk chief Udi Mokady said that bitcoin is often used to pay them off.
  • “Many companies choose to buy bitcoin in some state or fashion and pay them off.”
  • Mokady said that the efforts of companies like his to teach companies about how to prevent cyberattacks are especially stymied in Europe, where firms are not required to disclose when or how many times they were breached.
  • Starting in 2018, disclosure will become a requirement, which should benefit cybersecurity companies like Mokady’s as well as those at risk of cyberthreat, the CEO told Cramer.
  • “The enterprises that we see and work with are actually trying to be smarter than [those who buy bitcoin for ransom] and learn from other companies’ mistakes and put in the means to prevent such attacks from really taking them down,” Mokady told Cramer.

Jim Cramer spoke with CyberArk’s Udi Mokady to hear about how companies are getting involved with cryptocurrencies like bitcoin because of cyberattacks.

Why Warren Buffett’s wrong on bitcoin: Legg Mason’s Bill Miller — CNBC

  • Legg Mason’s Bill Miller may have lost 20 percent of his investment in bitcoin, but he’s still bullish on its potential.
  • Miller, chairman and chief investment officer at Legg Mason Capital Management, said bitcoin makes sense when investors look at its risks versus rewards.
  • Miller commented on billionaire Warren Buffett’s description of bitcoin as a “mirage” last month on “Squawk Box.”
  • Miller said Buffett was right about bitcoin’s potential as a means of money transfers or payments.
