In order to solve the challenge, the Lina Review team has introduced a blockchain-based review ecosystem to reviewers, professionals and businesses all over the world.

Vietnam May Soon Emerge As One Of Southeast Asia's Blockchain Innovation Hubs I write about the intersection of tech and social progress in Asia. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. Vietnam's energetic startup scene could provide fertile ground for blockchain innovation in the country. (Photo credit: STR/AFP/Getty Images) During the past several decades, Vietnam has shown what the World Bank describes as a "resilient" economy, thanks to rapidGDP growth. Society-wide, overall health and education outcomes have risen in recent years and the rate of extreme poverty dropped to 3%. This year, Vietnam's economic growth could reach 6.7%.

Instead of struggling to secure credit or invest their money, more people could grow their wealth and establish financial histories. "This presents excellent opportunities for Vietnamese startups to bootstrap their ideas and grow their user base, specifically by tapping in our massive underbanked population,"saysNicoleNguyen, head of corporate marketing at Vietnam's Infinity Blockchain Labs.

Achain Proposes Solutions to Blockchain Scalability During Vietnam Blockchain Week HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, March 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ho Chi Minh City drew thousands of blockchain enthusiasts in search of knowledge during Vietnam Blockchain Week, causing a major hotel room shortage. These enthusiasts came from various industries, including e-commerce, fintech, finance and, of course, blockchain. The two-day event (March 7 and 8) saw many subjects discussed and debated. The most heated of them all was scalability of the blockchain. Panel Discussion: Scalability of Blockchain Achain Presents its Ecosystem in Vietnam Blockchain Week Since the Crypto-Kitties' disruption of the Ethereum -creating network congestion and traffic for all users of the Ethereum blockchain, scalability of blockchain has been the critical issue for the mass popularization of the technology. Lighting network, sharding etc. are among the next initiatives lining up to increase capacity and throughput of the blockchain. Apparently, the blockchain community is trying to find a technical breakthrough to reach the mass adoption of decentralized technology. Achain, a public blockchain, has created a new consensus called RDPoS (Result DPoS). RDPoS is a consensus built upon the original, community-famous DPoS. It optimizes block generation nodes as well as delegated nodes on the blockchain network and reduces the time needed to reach a consensus among delegates, thus creating faster TPS for Achain. Another solution Achain proposed to solve the scalability blockchain technology is their so-called 'forking theory.' The solution, in essence, is to build parallel systems of forks that achieve processing goals in reaction to individual real-world events and cooperate as a single system.

Is Vietnam The Future Hub Of Blockchain Innovation

Is Vietnam The Future Hub Of Blockchain Innovation

Could Vietnam be the Future Hub of Blockchain Innovation Fintech advocates see Vietnam as a potential future hub of blockchain based technology despite messy government regulatory framework. The Vietnamese economy has grown by leaps and bounds in the last three decadesbecoming what the world bank describes as resilient and looking at 6.7% growth in the coming year. Fintech advocates say there is room for improvement though and point to the fact that as a nation it is still under-serviced when it comes to banking needs. While only 31% of adults in the country have bank accounts, 40% will have smartphones by 2021 and that could lead to a revolution in the nations financial services. NicoleNguyen, head of corporate marketing at Vietnams Infinity Blockchain Labs sees great opportunity for people to bypass the traditional system of investing and saving in order to establish credit with fiat banks, saying that; This presents excellent opportunities for Vietnamese startups to bootstrap their ideas and grow their user base, specifically by tapping in (to) our massive underbanked population, Infinity Blockchain Labs hosted a Blockchain Week Conference earlier this month that brought 2,000 attendants to Ho Chi Minh city to discuss Vietnams future in the global blockchain ecosystem.

Global experts share views on blockchain in HCM City Vit Nam Blockchain Week - a global conference on blockchain technology and development opened in HCM City yesterday. -- VNS Photo Hong Nam. HCM CITY Two thousand people took part in the first ever Vit Nam Blockchain Week, a global conference on blockchain technology and development, held in HCM City yesterday. The Ministry of Science and Technology encourages the development of new technologies like blockchain, to boost economy, T Vit Dng, head of the Ministry of Science and Technologys technology application and development department, said in his opening speech. I hope through the event leading international blockchain experts will share their experience and help Vit Nam adopt blockchain technology. Junya Yamamoto, general director of Infinity Blockchain Labs Co.Ltd, which organised the event, said: Vit Nam has great potential to develop blockchain technology. However, the technology is now facing many challenges, such as lack of a legal framework for its use in finance, insurance, energy, food and trade. Steve Leonard, founding CEO of SGInnovate, said: When we think about adding information to a distributed ledger, the idea is that many people have a copy of the same information, so we eliminated the risk of one central place being hacked or a bad actor falsify information. Many times we see a situation where technology is ready sooner than society is comfortable with it, and blockchain is the same. Alex Medana, top Hong Kong fintech influencer and board member of the Hong Kong Fintech Association, spoke about where blockchain changes the finance paradigm. He mentioned three advantages: with trust, money would flow quicker; asset exchange through blockchain is very simple and fast because everything has been digit Continue reading >>
