Cappasity Set to Unveil World’s First Blockchain Platform for AR/VR/3D Content

  • Cappasity, the leader in delivering an in-store browsing experience to online retail through interactive 3D images, announced today it is developing an AR/VR blockchain ecosystem designed to enable fast and easy AR/VR/3D content creation.
  • The platform will be powered by ARToken (ART), a virtual currency for trading the content inside the ecosystem.
  • Cappasity will leverage the blockchain to become the global 3D/AR/VR content exchange ecosystem for the users, developers and businesses who will benefit from 3D image creation, embedding and trading.
  • Cappasity ARTs can be earned by creating and sharing 3D/AR/VR content, and be used to buy or rent it.
  • The platform will allow 3D content creators and distributors to monetize and share the fruits of their creativity via a tokenized ecosystem.

Bitcoin split in two, here’s what that means

  • After ongoing debates over how to scale the digital currency called bitcoin, some people have decided to make an entirely new currency called Bitcoin Cash.
  • Currently, there are an average of about 1,700 transactions that can be saved per bitcoin block, at about three transactions per second, Manain said.
  • It will only be successful if people decide en masse to create the blocks for the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.
  • However, not all bitcoin exchanges (where people store their bitcoin) will accept Bitcoin Cash, and that could potentially hinder the widespread adoption of the new digital currency.
  • And in order for Bitcoin Cash to be used for mainstream transactions like buying coffee, businesses will have to accept it, regardless of whether they already accept bitcoin or not.

A new digital currency is born.

Welp, Bitcoin Might Still Fork on August 1

Bitcoin is back on its bullshit, might still fork on August 1

  • The new version of bitcoin, which supporters are calling “Bitcoin Cash,” is being pitched as a refuge for bitcoiners who want the virtual currency to scale up to worldwide adoption but who don’t agree with some of the more popular proposals to do so.
  • This might surprise you if you’ve been following the “scaling debate,” an ongoing war of words between elements of the bitcoin community regarding how best to implement a code change that would allow the network to handle more transactions.
  • For about two years, the bitcoin community has been careening towards the possibility of a fork that would split the network into two versions; one that will support the code change, and another that won’t.
  • So, Bitcoin Cash is a new contingency plan intended to come into effect if on August 1 the network isn’t in agreement, causing instability.
  • The “cash” part is a nudge-and-a-wink to people who believe that bitcoin should be a low-cost payment network for everybody, and that big blocks are the solution.

What is ‘Bitcoin Cash’?

Bitcoin soars as miners finally move to solve the digital currency’s scaling problem

#bitcoin soars as miners finally move to solve the digital currencys scaling problem #BIP91

  • Bitcoin (Exchange: BTC=-USS) miners are signaling their intent to support a new upgrade for the bitcoin blockchain that may solve the digital currency’s long-running scaling issue.
  • Several of the largest bitcoin miners (who create new bitcoins and support the blockchain), including AntPool, BitClub, Bixin, BTC.com and BitFury, have started showing their support for bitcoin improvement proposal (BIP) 91, by adding a piece of code to each new block of bitcoins they generate.
  • “The prospect of a contentious August fork has been hanging over bitcoin’s price like a sword of Damocles, and so the 20 percent plus price pop we’ve seen in the last 24 hours is not surprising.”
  • One solution is a system called Segregated Witness (SegWit) which would increase the speed of transactions, but it required 95 percent support from miners and the community to be added to the blockchain and there has been resistance.
  • This would involve a “user-activated soft fork”, where bitcoin users would force the blockchain to split by rejecting any block of bitcoins that did not signal support for SegWit.

Bitcoin miners are signalling their intent to support a new upgrade for the bitcoin blockchain that may solve the digital currency’s scaling issue.

Blockchain: The Battle To Secure Digital Identities

  • A few well-known companies such as Deloitte, IBM, and Microsoft started to ask themselves the same question and they are currently developing a few solutions for identity management.
  • This is just an example of the main reasons why identity management can only benefit from the blockchain technology, whether it is the Bitcoin or the Ethereum one; and that’s why the above companies decided to take advantage of this revolutionary tech.
  • IBM, for example, was one of the first company to study and test the blockchain to solve identity-related issues:

    Recently, IBM and SecureKey also announced they are working together with the main goal of creating a “new digital identity and attribute sharing network” to make it easier for users to verify their data in a privacy-enhanced, secure and efficient way.

  • It is an open source based on a smart identity platform available for users and companies that want to obtain, verify and identity credentials when communicating with one another.
  • Another move in this direction has been made by Microsoft Company that started a partnership with Blockstack Labs and ConsenSys to create an open-source platform for identity management based both on Bitcoin and Ethereum.

A friend of mine recently lost his wallet with all his money, cards and documents in it, of course. He was telling me how difficult and how long is the w…
