Evaluating Blockchain Systems

Evaluating Blockchain Systems

The goal of this project is to evaluate the properties of existing blockchain protocols and to propose new building blocks for dedicated applications. A distributed ledger appears as a promising paradigm to transfer assets across users of a peer-to-peer system without requiring any trusted central authority. While its most prominent implementations, Bitcoin and Ethereum [1], were shown effective at managing cryptocurrency publicly among permissionless Internet users, their blockchain abstraction presented anomalies [2] when used to handle ownerships of permissioned users in a private environment [3].A blockchain is simply a chain of blocks linked to each other in reverse order, from the latest appended block to the initial, also called genesis, block. Blockchain users can invoke transactions to transfer virtual assets from one of their accounts to another account; miners group these new transactions into blocks that they append regularly to the chain. A protocol solving the consensus problem is necessary to guarantee that blocks are totally ordered, hence preventing a block from being appended if it contains transactions that conflict with the transactions of the previous blocks.The goal of this research project is to evaluate the guarantees that blockchain systems offer. This evaluation will consist of listing the necessary properties that a blockchain system should provide for financial applications and will compare the properties offered by classic blockchain implementations as well as new solutions. This will lead to a better understanding of existing blockchain consensus protocols, their strength and limitations, and will help developing new blockchain building blocks tailored for particular applications.[1]G.

How Sydney Blockchain Startup Hashkloud Scored Partnerships With Two Bangladeshi Banks

How Sydney Blockchain Startup Hashkloud Scored Partnerships With Two Bangladeshi Banks

How Sydney blockchain startup Hashkloud scored partnerships with two Bangladeshi banks Blockchain has been receiving a deluge of media attention in recent weeks, and Sydney-based startup Hashkloud is capitalising on the growth of the technology by launching its offerings with two financial institutions in Bangladesh. Hashkloud is working with Dhaka Bank to launch its Serviskloud platform within the next week, in a partnership that will use the blockchain as a software connector to consolidate the integrity of the data that is transferred between banks, as well as securing transactions between the bank and its customers. The startup has also recently signed with the United Commercial Bank in Bangladesh to explore how its services can help the bank utilise the blockchain platform. Launching in new markets Hashkloud was founded in 2015, after co-founders Tarique A Bhuiyan and Dr Reza Ali met while Bhuiyan was completing his research doctorate on the effect of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies on business verticals. Since then, they have established a team in Australia and Malaysia, and will be looking at setting up their main operations in Bangladesh soon. Bhuiyan told StartupSmart he leveraged his past knowledge of the Bangladeshi fintech sector to spearhead this Bangladeshi launch. Previously, he held the role of chief executive and information officer at bKash, a startup that was owned by BRAC bank, the largest SME bank in Bangladesh. Hes also held senior management positions at Accenture, St George Bank and ING Direct. Bhuiyan advises startups should have an in-depth knowledge of the market before they contemplate overseas expansion. You really need to understand the market before you venture in to it, he says. Even if youre launching the same product not all Continue reading >>

Blockchain Training In Sydney | Blockchain Certification Course

Description: Great ideas often take funds and a collective effort to bring to fruition. One option is to ask for donations, but donors prefer to give to projects they are more certain will get traction and proper funding. Crowdfunding is ideal in these situations. In this example, we create a better crowdfunding solution by solving two important problems: how rewards are managed and kept, and how the money is spent after the funds are raised. Description: This case implements a voting contract and showcases many of Soliditys features. One of the main problems with electronic voting is how to assign voting rights to the correct persons and how to prevent manipulation. While we will not solve all problems here, we will show how delegated voting can be performed so that vote counting is automatic and completely transparent. The idea is to create one contract per ballot, providing a short name for each option. Then the creator of the contract who serves as chairperson will give the right to vote to each address individually. The persons behind the addresses can then choose to either vote themselves or to delegate their vote to a person they trust. Description: Lotteries are obvious next-generation cases ideally suited to Blockchain technology. In any Blockchain token sale, smart contact (or token) purchasers buy tokens or values in exchange for ETH, fiat or other currencies. They transfer some form of value for the new token. At the end of the sale, the provider issues tokens in the amount of the values purchased, and the public Blockchain shows the results of how much each wallet owns in the new tokens with each wallet being identified by a unique hash. Description: Description: Consider a fictitious airline. We will develop a sustainable Network application for this fict Continue reading >>

University Of Sydney's Super-fast Blockchain Gets Even Faster

University Of Sydney's Super-fast Blockchain Gets Even Faster

University of Sydney s super-fast blockchain gets even faster Search for courses, people, events and everything else ... University of Sydney's super-fast blockchain gets even faster World-wide tests reveal Red Belly Blockchains impressive speed New global trials have shown the super-fast Red Belly Blockchain can process financial transactions 50 percent faster than first anticipated outperforming some market leaders including VISA for world-wide payments. Blockchain technology is best known as technology that underpins Bitcoin. Blockchain is a public ledger allowing secure and almost instantaneous digital transfer of virtual currencies across the world. The Red Belly Blockchain is being developed by researchers at the University of Sydneys School of Information Technologies . Dr Vincent Gramoli , who heads up the Concurrent Systems Research Group developing the blockchain, said trials over the past three months showed the technologys performance gets better as it scales up. Our latest tests showed the Red Belly Blockchain can process more than 660,000 transactions per second on 300 machines in a single data centre. This is a notable improvement from our tests earlier in the year, which showed our blockchain achieved a performance of more than 440,000 transactions per second on 100 machines, he said. In comparison, VISAs network has a peak capacity of around 56,000 transactions per second, and the Bitcoin network is limited to around seven transactions per second. The Red Belly Blockchain was also tested across 14 diverse geographical regions from Australia to the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Brazil, Japan, India, South Korea and Singapore. Ten machines participated in the testing in each region. Our results confirmed that our blockchain achieves better performance than ex Continue reading >>

Blockchain Conference Conferences In Sydney : Blockchain Conference Sydney Summits

Dec 08, 2017 Friday Sofitel Sydney Wentworth Sydney, Australia Second in the series of our Blockchain Technology Conference in Australia, the event will be organized on December 08, 2017 in Sydney. As revolutionary as it sounds, Blockchain truly is a mechanism to bring everyone to the highest degree of accountability. No more missed transactions, human or machine errors, or even an exchange that was not done with the consent of the parties involved. Above anything else, the most critical area where Blockchain helps is to guarantee the validity of a transaction by recording it not only on a main register but a connected distributed system of registers, all of which are connected through a secure validation mechanism. Blockchain in the information age represents the critical intersection between the financial rails, social networking, and powerful decentralized networks. It is critical for stakeholders to formulate careful legal and business strategies around novel business models as the technology and infrastructure, as well as the corresponding market appetite and regulatory structures, evolve rapidly in disparate global markets. A day event on Blockchain in Sydney aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of Blockchain technology by focusing on how to address the implementation challenges, make best use of the opportunities and benefit from the innovation and disruption that this technology brings along.

You Can Now Study Blockchain At University

You Can Now Study Blockchain At University

You can now study Blockchain at university You can now study Blockchain at university An Australian university is banking on Blockchain, the technology behind the lucrative yet volatile cryptocurrency industry, by launching a nation-first course in the emerging sector. Australia's first short course on Blockchain strategy, aiming to educate the nation's next wave of tech start-up entrepreneurs, will take flight on Tuesday at Melbourne's RMIT University. "Blockchain is now becoming a core part of contemporary digital literacy," Vice Chancellor Martin Bean said. The online eight-week program is set to begin in mid-March with students given the chance to hear from global experts in the growing space. Blockchain is a decentralised, shared ledger that - with the help of complicated cryptography - records transactions in a verifiable, secure and permanent way. Before Blockchain's birth in 2008, it was impossible to place value on virtual currencies like Bitcoin as there was no way of distinguishing a legitimate digital coin from a copy. Melbourne's RMIT is offering a blockchain short-course. The same principal applies to managing real money digitally, with banks slowly grasping Blockchain's potential benefits as a faster, inexpensive and autonomous system. "There is a real demand for Blockchain training and a skills gap in the market that needs to be addressed," Alan Tsen, the Melbourne manager of financial tech company Stone and Chalk, said. As demand presently outstrips supply in the US, there is a desperate need for more programmers in the growing industry predicted to be worth $176 billion by 2025, according to Gartner Research. Aside from banking, the database system has potential applications for tracking the ownership history of real-world items, electronic voting, cy Continue reading >>

It is expected that over the next 30 years Artificial Intelligence and technological change is expected to revolutionise the workplace - not just in the areas impacted by previous technology transformations such as the more blue collar sectors but more so in - white collar sectors such as accounting and the law. This paper explores the implications of the disruption that is arguably already taking place as we speak, and the expected increase in change that will see a loss of 800,000 jobs in Australia over the next 10 years and the 5,000,000 jobs expected to be lost globally due to the digital revolution (according to the CEO of LinkedIn). The min focus of this paper is the context of the changes, the technologies especially the so-called blockchain, artificial intelligence and the strategic issues facing 'the law firm' and industry that will need to manage these issues if they are to remain competitive and indeed survive. An accomplished international executive and leader - Stephen has a long record of delivering, and inspiring others to deliver, highly successful outcomes. He has 30 years of strategic advisory, management consulting and complex acquisition integration management experience across multiple industry sectors.
