Devcon3 Could Be A Positive Catalyst For Ethereum Price

Devcon3 Could be a Positive Catalyst for Ethereum price The Ethereum community is getting ready for the Ethereum developers conference or Devcon 3 next week. Both users and investors are looking forward to the event and the presentation to uncover that piece of information that could trigger the next Ethereum price movement. The same applies to our research team. We had a look at the agenda and these are the observations weve noted so far: The attendance has more than doubled since Devcon 2 last year. More presenters and presentations as well. Tickets were sold out early July. The number of sponsors is up from last year and went from 17 sponsors to this: Of course, investors and traders will expect some price reaction before and after Devcon 3 conference as the cryptocurrency market seems to consider these conferences similar to the way an earning guidance is considered for stocks. In terms of content, these are some DEVCON 3 presentations that seem to have the potential to provide price catalysts Ethereum in 25 Minutes, Version MMXVII: Although it is a general explanation of Ethereum, Gaz and smart contracts, the market will probably read into the information presented by Vitalik Buterin. Regulatory Update and Look Ahead: For obvious reasons Whether we like it or not, regulations often affect the projects we are launching and building on EthereumThis session by Coin Center will give an update on regulatory developments over the past year that may affect Ethereum developers and will also look at what we can expect over the coming year.

Ethereum's Annual Conference: Devcon Three Focuses On Scalability | Btcmanager

BTCMANAGER (@btc_manager) November 4, 2017 DAO Integral Platform for Climate Initiatives A similar initiative focused on carbon credit and decentralizing this process was put forward by Anton Galenovich Ph.D. Galenovich emphasized the fragmented nature of carbon credit markets; one and the same basic asset and liability is characterized by dozens of markets and instruments. For example, there are about 40 different carbon compliance units representing what is, fundamentally, the same asset. To bring them all under one instrument, the DAO plans to use IoT along with Ethereum network validators. Smart contracts packages are functioning already for carbon credit markets, which have been tested with real participants and aim to build the first service for reducing your carbon footprint with only carbon credits based on Ethereum. The idea is influenced by the Coase theorem, which revolves around a hypothetical situation relating to social costs. Imagine you have a doctor living above a residential apartment. The noises from the dentists is causing a nuisance, namely the form of noise pollution. The doctor will have to pay X for quieter equipment, while the resident will have to pay Y to sound proof his living space. Assume, YContinue reading >>

Devcon3 Attendees Blockchain Insurance Cant Stop Mexico Police Corruption

Devcon3 Attendees Blockchain Insurance Cant Stop Mexico Police Corruption

Devcon3 Attendees Blockchain Insurance Cant Stop Mexico Police Corruption Devcon3 attendees get automatic flight delay compensation but police arrest several in bribe shakedown. Travellers attending the Devcon3 Conference in Cancun, Mexico are among the first in the world to get licensed Blockchain insurance cover. As part of a rollout from Blockchain startup Etherisc, those flying to Mexico can get automatic refunds for delayed flights via smart contract. The trial is underwritten by Atlas Insurance and allows conference-goers to share the risk of a delayed or canceled flight with fellow travelers, a press release explains. Passengers can choose their preferred premium, view their estimated payout, and make their purchase in ETH or major fiat currencies. Devcon3 is an Ethereum-focused gathering of top developers from the cryptocurrency development and business space, running from Nov. 1 through Nov. 4. The core Ethereum team will be in attendance, with co-creator Vitalik Buterin among others presenting on the cryptocurrency. While the Blockchain insurance offer is pertinent, the increased security jars with reports that attendees are being sought out for bribes by local police. Entrepreneur and Ethereum developer Julien Bouteloup, who was himself a victim, reported on Twitter Monday that at least four Devcon3 members had been arrested on bribe demands up to $5,000.

A Reflection On Ethereum's Devcon 3

A Reflection On Ethereum's Devcon 3

Okay. Let's jump into Devcon 3. I'm certainly not going to cover every talk but will highlight a few important talks as well as random thoughts and conversations I had surrounding the conference. The second one, which you can watch here . The talk was put on by Jerry Brito and Peter Van Valkenburgh from Coin Center . Coin Center is the "leading non-profit focused on the policy issues facing cryptocurrencies..." Their presentation revolved around control of currency, tokens as securities,AML compliance and how they are approaching it with law makers. It was very telling to me that the Ethereum Foundation chose to put this talk right at the beginning of the conference. It is one of, if not the most important conversation to be having right now. I'd even go as far as saying that the work that Coin Center is doing is more important than the technology showcased through the rest of Devcon. Without the legal and regulatory frameworks for us to work from, the blockchain and cryptocurrency space sits in perpetual limbo around liabilities. Ethereum Foundation security lead, Martin Swende: "We are all in cryptoland. It's like Australia where anything with a heartbeat will try to kill you and if you make a mistake you're probably dead. Meanwhile, for attackers, they have never had it better." On the third night, I attended the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance social party. It was oversubscribed very quickly and featured people from Fortune 500s and startups alike. The most interesting conversation I had was held with Amber Baldet, lead of J.P. Morgan's Quorom, a private implementation of the Ethereum blockchain. We talked about how to approach regulatory ambiguity, being blockchain agnostic, and, of course, Ethereum, Quorum, and Hyperledger. Interoperability between blockchains is go Continue reading >>

Devcon 3: Vitalik Buterin Unveils Ethereum Technical Development Roadmap

Devcon 3: Vitalik Buterin Unveils Ethereum Technical Development Roadmap

Ethereum creator, Vitalik Buterin, announcedat Devcon that he had been quietly working on a new comprehensive plan fot the blockchain network, calling it a modest proposal which is aimed at the projects technical development. During the Ethereums flagship conference, the hacker proposed sharding along with other technical changes to Ethereum. He admitted that the expansion of the project would have some impact on storage costs and highlighted the need for solutions that would help mitigate such costs. Scalability is probably problem number one [] Theres a graveyard of systems that claim to solve the scalability problem but dont. Its a very significant and hard challenge. These are just known facts, Buterin said. He also suggested a solution which is likely to solve the problem. It involves partitioning data into subsets so that each node can store only a certain, small component of the network. The underlying mechanism would ensure the accountability of the system and, if required, nodes could rely on other nodes for data. However, this also raises the issue that nodes should send correct information to other nodes. When speaking about these issues, the Ethereum founder proposed a new sharding infrastructure whichwould solve the problems with both scalability and governance. Buterin also said that one of the best options will be to split Ethereum into types of shards the main shard comprising of the current Ethereum network, and other shards or universes. As the hacker supposes, this mechanism would make to changethe smaller shards, and would also bring more cautious changes on the main blockchain. This, in turn, will ensure the networks stability, while giving room to developers to test new changes and move fast on the other shards.Other universes where all this stuff Continue reading >>

Devcon 3 And Ethereum-empowered Blockchain Development

Devcon 3 And Ethereum-empowered Blockchain Development

If you ever questioned the insatiable interest in Ethereum, you only have to look to Devcon3. Thousands of ethereum enthusiasts gathered at the conference in Cancun, Mexico last week to discuss the popular blockchain. Developers, programmers, regulators, business executives and entrepreneurs were on hand to share information, ideas and experiences related to blockchain development , its potential impacts, and various use-cases. Infinity Blockchain Labs was there to contribute to the conversations and discuss its revolutionary identity verification system, Blockpass. What is Devcon3s Contribution to Blockchain Development? Devcon3 is the largest Ethereum conference in the world held by the Ethereum Foundation. It invites participants from all over the world to give presentations on research and development. The four day conference includes the brightest minds in blockchain development including a keynote address given by Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Ethereum foundation executive director Ming Chang. The goal is to further individuals understanding and implementation of blockchain development technology as well as foster collaborations, information sharing and project awareness Read more: How Blockchain Development Can Impact the Fishing Industry The View from the Conference Not a Bad Place to Be in November On the first day of the conference, the Ethereum team explained the many changes to the technology, structure and adoption of Ethereum in the last year as well as visions for the future. The second day focused on important projects and technical developments such as crypto nodes, security approaches, smart contract evolutions, token creation and payment channels. This highly scientific day was followed by two days discussing and presenting applications with r Continue reading >>

Ethereum Devcon3 Update Datum

Ethereum Devcon3 Update Datum

Co-Founder & CEO of Datum The distributed database governing safe exchange and trade of data. Big Data Nerd! Datum recently attended Ethereum DevCon3 conference in Cancun, Mexico arguably the largest gathering of Ethereum developers. We sent a total of four people; Lead Developer Florian Honegger; Cynthia Lo (forging ecosystem partnerships); Chris Miess, one of our trusted advisors and myself. The red area shows what may fall under security classification bySEC In the light of growing ecosystem, before Vitaliks keynote talk, organizers set up a brief talk on the legal aspects of Ethereum Tokens . We highly recommend this talk to anyone, it is the most concise and precise overview of what may qualify as Utility or Security Token under US law that we have seen so far. The fact that this was essentially the first talk of the day also highlighted the importance of legal compliance. We can all build decentralized blockchains that are unregulated, but at some point many projects have touch points in the real world and need to ensure that they are compliant with regulations, whether we agree with the current status of regulation or not is another question. At Datum, we chose to be legally compliant from day one, working with KPMG Switzerland as our Legal Counsel to structure our Token Sale and interact with regulators and authorities in Switzerland, and requiring full KYC during our Token Sale. You can watch the full Devcon 3 Day 1 stream here, with the legal compliance lecture coming first: Ethereum Devcon 3 Day 1 Stream you can watch the whole eight and a half hours here. We had a beautiful view at breakfast, but that was all we got to enjoy of Cancun, given our accelerated road map there was no time for R&R and no Datum team toes touched any sand, well have to leave that f Continue reading >>

Devcon3 Preview: 6 Talks To Watch At Ethereum's Developer Summit

Devcon3 Preview: 6 Talks To Watch At Ethereum's Developer Summit

Devcon3 Preview: 6 Talks to Watch At Ethereum's Developer Summit Oct 31, 2017 at 04:00 UTC|UpdatedNov 1, 2017 at 18:02 UTC From $72 million to $28 billion - ethereum'svalue has skyrocketed in 2017. Once dismissed as just another cryptocurrency, the protocol has won praise for its persistence in charting an innovative course in technology development. Indeed, for many investors, the conversation is now bitcoin and ether first, a sign it's set itself apart from the broader asset class. That said, roadblocks remain between ethereum and its goal of fulfilling its value proposition and becoming a " world computer ." It's against that background that programmers and enthusiasts from around the world are descending onCancn, Mexico, this week for the protocol's flagship developer conference, Devcon . An annual event , Devcon3 sold out back in July and features 128 sessions over the course of its four-day program. There to present will be several of the platform's most prominent technologists, including ethereum creator Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum Name Service (ENS) developer Nick Johnson andCornell University professor Emin Gun Sirer, who will no doubt speak to the network's pressing issues. A look at the schedule shows that ethereum developers have their heads down on a variety of projects aimed at bringing the platform to fruition, with perhaps scalability and privacy emerging as the big touchpoints. Can't make it to Cancun? The Ethereum Foundation is streaming the entire conference live. With that in mind, CoinDesk has compiled its list of the top six talks to watch: 1.Casper the Friendly GHOST: A correct-by-construction blockchain- Vlad Zamfir Perhaps the most-anticipated of ethereum's projects, Casper looks to completely rewire how ethereum works .

A16z Field Notes: Devcon3 Ethereum Developers Conference

Editors Note: These notes, based on talks at the Ethereum Foundations thirdannual developers conference earlier this month, were shared internally over email, as part of our ongoing sharing of ideas and learning inside a16z. Theyve now been reposted here, unedited, as a resource for those interested in ethereum technology, research, development, and more. For more about the Ethereum Foundation and resources, visit their site . For our own podcasts and writings, go here . Seeming public consensus since 2013 that blockchains are useful for stuff. Not just money! Asset issuance, etc Problem: most existing blockchain protocols were designed like a calculator can do one thing well. People were starting to create protocols that worked like a Swiss army knife. Come up with 25 different blockchain applications, protocols. But breaks down when 26th application comes around Why not make a protocol that works like a smartphone? Instead of supporting small suite of applications, support a programming language which gives you the ability to create applications. Anyone can write code, package it, and you have an app. Anyone can download the app, use it and run it The concept Ethereum is a blockchain with a few additions. There are two types of accounts: User accounts (controlled by private keys). If transaction included in a block, it gets executed Contracts (controlled by code): If thing A happens, send coins to person X. If you send coins into the account, the code is the only thing that can move coins around. Digital assets controlled by computer program. Can be used to represent arbitrarily complex business logic on the blockchain (e.g. on blockchain voting scheme, ENS (name service), issuer backed assets, etc) Anyone can create an application with any rules by defining it as a Continue reading >>
