As FinTech continues to reimagine new business models for finance, a high-profile financial regulator believes it can also be used to enforce derivative laws more effectively. J. Christopher Giancarlo, the chairman of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), highlighted distributed ledger technology (DLT) and how it can automate regulations for derivative markets while speaking at the D.C.

Blockchain testing and research company Whiteblock Inc. has released a damning verdict on EOS, describing it as a “distributed homogeneous database” masquerading as a blockchain. In a report titled “EOS: An Architectural, Performance and Economic Analysis,” the company dissects several aspects of the EOS protocol and comes to the conclusion that it suffers from a

On the latest episode of Distributed Dialogues, Dave and Rick from the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network host interviews on the risks and rewards of government interference in the cryptocurrency space.
The first guest, John Collins, got his start in government on the Senate Committee of Homeland Security, and quickly moved to working with Coinbase after he first heard about Bitcoin in 2013.
Since then, he’s tried to bridge the worlds of policy and cryptocurrency. Collins discusses the ways in which he has worked to make the government see regulation as a chance to nurture growing industries. He also works as a fellow at the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard to make the relevant information as free and accessible to agents of business and government as possible.

A new post from a senior Ripple executive has caused controversy just a day after it went live as cryptocurrency community commentators ridicule the company over claims its ledger is “decentralized.”
Schwartz Claims ‘Inherent Decentalization’
The latest curious official correspondence to appear from Ripple, CTO David Schwartz claimed August 22 that the Ripple XRP token was “inherently decentralized.”
“Bitcoin and Ethereum are currently viewed as the gold standard for decentralization — meaning they are architected in a way that no single individual or minority group can dictate rules or rewrite transaction history (the power of blockchain!),” he wrote.
At the recent Distributed 2018 conference in San Francisco, Rick Lewis and Dave Hollerith from the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network interviewed a host of different personalities in the blockchain space about digital privacy.
First, the team interviewed David Chaum, one of the forefathers of cryptocurrency as we know it today. Starting from these humble beginnings, Chaum describes a brief history of the earliest days of digital money, as he built much of the enthusiasm for cryptography himself. His brief account of his work in the field gives a huge amount of insight into the culture and passion for privacy that eventually birthed modern cryptocurrency.
The fact that great responsibility accompanies great power has become crystal clear in the blockchain world. While blockchains are most commonly connected with commerce, the potential impact of distributed ledgers is being discovered in fresh sectors daily.
In the most recent episode of the Distributed Dialogues podcast, a collaborative show between the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed Magazine, blockchain’s better side was on display. The show explored three different perspectives on how the technology is being used, not just to raise crypto value, but to help humanity rise up.
The Distributed 2018 conference that recently took place in San Francisco was accompanied by a new edition of the Distributed Dialogues podcast, a collaborative show between the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network and Distributed Magazine.
With a focus on introducing listeners to blockchain technology thought leaders and innovators, thelatest episode featured a trio of thought leaders. The first segment was an interview with Laura Shin, host of the crypto/blockchain podcasts Unchained and Unconfirmed, and formerly a Forbes editor. Talking with host David Hollerith, Shin weighed in on a question of increasing importance: Can journalists who hold a particular cryptocurrency report objectively on that cryptocurrency? Since their reporting on the space can reinforce market patterns such as momentum, it’s a self-examination that matters.
In partnership with the Distributed Event Series and the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network, “Distributed Dialogues” gives listeners a cross section of the cryptocurrency and enterprise blockchain ecosystem by giving voice to the people, ideas and projects that make it possible.
The following interviews came from Tatiana Moroz during the Distributed: Markets event. During the event, Tatiana interviewed a wide variety of the people who work in the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology space. Hearing from these people illuminates what is happening within the space whether recruiting internationally for a cryptocurrency exchange, building a peer-to-peer decentralized platform, disrupting supply chains or simply trying to create a more open world for financial transactions.
As part of New York Blockchain Week, Distributed Business Accelerator (DBA) publicly launched their global blockchain accelerator community designed to cultivate an ecosystem of blockchain startups.
The CEO of the project is Tom Tao, formerly of IBM and Chainbase Accelerator. In opening remarks, Tao gave his outlook on the industry and extrapolated on where he saw DBA adding value to the blockchain ecosystem, noting that “for startups, obtaining resources and attention quickly is one of the critical factors to attain success.”
One of the most promising concepts of second-generation blockchains is that of dApps (or “decentralised applications”). These are apps built on top of a blockchain. To date, few have made the headlines (with the exception, perhaps, of CryptoKitties), but there is a an increasingly large amount being pushed to the Ethereum mainnet, and even more in the works — State of the Dapps lists a range of projects in various stages of development. MetaMask will let users interact with these dApps using only their browser.
Ukrainian company REMME has recently released the alpha build of its REMME Core 0.1.0 protocol, which hopes to eliminate human error in the cybersecurity domain by getting rid of passwords entirely.
Password management is no joke. Despite the ever-expanding advances made in cryptography over the years, poor password discipline remains the greatest weakness to modern computer systems. Besides phishing attacks and easily guessable passwords, users have even been shown to give up their passwords for a bar of chocolate.
InsurePal is set to revolutionize the insurance industry by harnessing blockchain technology and merging it with social proof methodology that will reduce costs and have a positive societal impact.
A common facet of modern life is insurance, which comes in many forms: auto, life, medical, property, and more. Yet, like many economic institutions operating in today’s world, insurance has changed little over the last century. People who make responsible choices in their lives are forced to pay higher premiums in order to subsidize the risk of insurance companies for policies held by people making poor decisions.
