There is hardly a person who hasn’t heard about blockchain at least something in the last two years. Even people very far from the IT-industry know that there are some distributed ledgers… But how they are relevant to real life? — you ask. Here we are telling you why it is so useful in traditional businesses.
Healthcare is one of the most "sensitive " industries since healthcare is primarily about people. Blockchain can significantly make life easier for both doctors and patients. Doctors will not have to re-prescribe examinations that the patient got in another clinic. Patients will no longer need to gather their medical history across all clinics. All this will be united in the blockchain.
There is hardly a person who hasn’t heard about blockchain at least something in the last two years. Even people very far from the IT-industry know that there are some distributed ledgers… But how they are relevant to real life? — you ask. Here we are telling you why blockchain is such an amazing thing.
The work of our team on DapCash blockchain is in full swing. Recently, we integrated another completely new and unique feature. This is the scheme of post-quantum digital signature Crystal Dilithium. And we’d like to tell you why it is a significant and cool thing.
Scientists are amazing people, they just can’t live without inventions or discoveries. And then the whole world has to think what to do with these discoveries. For example, atomic energy is as useful as it is dangerous. And Peter Shor with his algorithm is a good example of this.
Before talking about sharding, it is worth noting essential circumstance. Any fast-growing blockchain sooner or later faces the problem of scalability. The decentralization and security of blockchain are ensured by reaching a consensus between nodes and storing all the blockchain data in each node. Just imagine what a huge amount of data is growing every day, like a snowball! That is why it is not surprising that transactions speed is the chief casualty.
Whether Bitcoin and its’ forks can resist quantum computing? This question divides the crypto community into two opposing groups. On the one hand, crypto-enthusiasts believe Bitcoin can resist quantum technologies. On the other hand, crypto-realists pay much more attention to quantum safety. Let’s look at the arguments of both groups and try to draw conclusions.
The most important and interesting about encryption - Part 7. A series of articles understandable even to non-specialists.
This article tells us D-Wave started to produce and sell quantum computers in 2011. First, it was a 128-qubit quantum computer, then a 512-qubit one and so on. Up to a 2000-qubit quantum computer! Moreover, the main developer of DapCash project Dmitry Gerasimov repeatedly received proposals to develop software for D-Wave computers. Software for breaking the blockchain and other systems that use modern encryption.
Too many low-quality projects appeared in late 2017 and early 2018, and now they are only abandoned sites and useless tokens. Against this background, it is increasingly difficult for project founders to earn the trust of investors and raise funds to develop a project. Difficult times are not only for founders but also for investors. There are too many projects, and crypto-investors just don’t have time to assess the advantages and disadvantages of each project. How to understand which project is worthy of attention?
