  1. The blockchain division of IBM, one of the most important technology companies in the world, continues its efforts to enter the field of protection of the personal information of its users. In this regard, IBM announced that it works together with Hu-manity.co, the creators of an app called # My31 that aims to protect the medical information of all users, so its name refers to a "31st human right", referring to the 30 rights recognized by the United Nations. This alliance with Hu-Manity demonstrates that the technological giant is committed to the field of information protection, as well as in the foray into the world of blockchain technology. "Making people see their rights in a blockchain will create a completely new market and economic model as a result of this," said a spokesman for IBM's blockchain division. This makes reference to that, although the Hu-Manity app is aimed at individuals, the corporations would surely be interested in developing business versions. Did you like this article?

  2. Despite having been released since the launch of Bitcoin, as we have said on other occasions, the origin of the blockchain is a little older. Of course, the rise of cryptocurrencies has included a revolution in our times, mainly due to the fact of promoting a new form of registration in which there is no need for external ones. Let's review a little. Commonly, we entrust our money to a bank, which is responsible for saving it and approving and recording the transactions we make with it. Of course, this will be charged commissions, which are usually quite high and, depending on the case, we must wait for some time for the operations to be effective. So that entity, supervised by a government in turn, will keep in its own accounting books a record of all transactions made by its users, and these will only be responsible for carrying them out, paying for said work, trusting the bank and waiting to be processed. We call this centralization. Blockchain technology, also known as blockchain, works like a digital ledger. When one person transfers money to another, this represents a transaction. The miners of the network group the transactions in blocks, which contain information of the same: date, amount, address of the wallet, among others; but in order to be added to the chain, it is necessary that they be verified. For this, a kind of competition is carried out in which the miners solve a mathematical problem of great complexity, and whoever completes it first will manage to add the block of transactions to the chain and, in addition, obtain a reward for said work. This is the most fascinating part. Each block that is added to the blockchain has its own hash, a unique identification number that condenses all the information contained in them. In turn, this is linked to the hash of the previous block, and the same does the following, creating an unalterable structure. Why? Well, if someone tried to change the verified data in a certain block, for example, the address of the receiver of a certain transaction, this would change the hash of that block and break the chain. In this way, we have a network in which not only a high level of security stands out, but the absence of intermediaries to guarantee it. They are the same members of the same who are responsible for updating, through what we know as work tests (PoW) and evidence of participation (PoS). These function as consensus mechanisms that in a certain way allow the community to reach an agreement without the need for a mediator. So, unlike the process to which we are accustomed, the chain of blocks works in a decentralized way. Now, having raised all this, it is a bit curious to mention that there are three types of blockchain, classified precisely according to the participation in them. In this sense, we can mention: public, private and federated. Given that in other opportunities we have explained the operation of this technology, in this article we will focus on comparing the first two. Let's briefly define each one. Public blockchain A public blockchain, also called open, as its name implies, is one in which anyone can join the network and collaborate with the update of the chain. This means that any member of the community in question can review the information contained in the verified blocks and participate in the verification process of the operations without any type of restriction. Private blockchain A private blockchain, also known as a closed blockchain, is one that is owned by an individual or institution, which is why it is not allowed for anyone to enter the community and add blocks to the chain. In fact, to be able to join the network, it would be necessary to receive an invitation from the developers of the same. Did you like this article?

On this, Bill Barhydt, former member of Goldman Sachs and founder and CEO of Abra, said that this initiative was motivated due to the high demand from its customers in more than 70 countries. "We want to give investors the opportunity to deposit into their Abra accounts from any bank account," he said.

In addition, Barhydt took the opportunity to clarify during an interview for CNBC that Abra was not an application to exchange cryptocurrencies, but to invest. "Abra is an application to invest in cryptocurrencies, in the same way that Fidelity is an investment application in shares", explaining also that the users of its community are investors that bet on long-term cryptocurrencies, since "cryptocurrencies are here to stay.

  4. The hospital of the Medical University of Taipei, Taiwan, has created a platform for healthcare that uses blockchain technology to maintain, safeguard and facilitate access to medical records of their patients, according to local portal Taipei Times. The initiative, which will be called "Healthcare Blockchain Platform" will also improve patient referral services by being integrated into healthcare networks. The platform, which involves more than 100 community clinics, was developed in accordance with the policy of the hierarchical medical system requested by the government. By using the platform, patients can access more easily and securely all of their records, which include images of medical exams, laboratory results and health exams with the use of a mobile application. For their part, hospitals will be able to request, authorize and transfer patient data to each other in a much more fluid way using smart contracts. Chang Shy-shin, head of the Department of Preventive and Community Medicine, says that the traditional way of referring patients to other doctors is through counters where a nurse assists them, but now the process is channeled with the application.

He also urged an interested party in the necessary measures so that custody solutions are more relevant in each case. Regarding the above, Taylor added that: While working on these things, it is clear that they will play too late. [Many have left their traditional jobs to pursue a career in the decentralized sector], because they do not want to be left out. [...] Ultimately, most competitors entering the market today will fail, because the market is still discovering the sources of value that lead to success. On the other hand, other figures of influence in the industry have reported an improvement in the interest rate, such as the vice president of Coinbase, Adam White, who assured that the strategies that the company has employed to attract investments to the firm have been successful.

  13. The news portal Hard Fork reported today on the cancellation of the Initial Currency Offer (ICO) of the Indiegogo platform, since its intermediation partner, MicroVentures, informed the participants who financed the initiative that they will not receive tokens, but rather a refund of your money. Hard Fork learned of the cancellation after receiving the official email sent by MicroVentures. The email, which was sent in July, indicates that MicroVentures, a commercial partner of Indiegogo and in charge of the management of the ICO, thanks the participants of the Fan Controlled Football League (FCPL) pre-sale, but recognizes that the environment of Cryptocurrency regulations have been changing rapidly. That is why they have decided to cancel the ICO and return the capital to investors. FCPL is a proposal within Indiegogo that seeks to raise up to USD $ 5 million to build a football league, where the company promised to distribute tokens to its investors. The distribution of these tokens was to be supervised by MicroVentures but these indicate that the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has not provided a formal guide or legal framework on how to conduct an ICO. MicroVentures assures that they were waiting for the ICO to end while they followed the current regulations and then distribute the money to the company in charge of FCFL. Although they consider that everything they had done so far was in accordance with SEC laws, they can’t foresee new regulations and therefore decided to begin the return process by contacting the actors involved. The association of Indiegogo and MicroVentures began last December when they decided to take the FCFL project to establish a financing program through ICOs in order to expand crowdsourcing financing methods. Until the cancellation, the project had exceeded its initial goal, reaching USD $ 5.2 million in Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and fiat currencies. Did you like this article?

Bernstein where he questioned the true financial liquidity of the Bitmain company and notes with concern the sudden changes in the strategy, in addition to the competition is stronger in the future Despite the pessimism, it is estimated that Bitmain owns 85% of the market for cryptocurrency mining equipment.
