Fireside Chat With Dominik Schiener, Co-Founder Of IOTA (New York)
April 17, 2019 11:44 AM From IOTA NYC Meetup: Beyond Blockchain Dominik Schiener, Co-founder of the IOTA Foundation, will be joining us for a special evening in New York City on Friday, April 26th! Dominik rarely comes to the states, so this is a special opportunity for community members in New York to meet a founding member of one of the largest distributed ledger protocols in the world. Come prepared to ask questions, learn about upcoming developments related the IOTA protocol, and connect with the IOTA NYC community. Food and drinks will be provided for guests. About Dominik Schiener Dominik is a young entrepreneur from Italy focused on realizing the Machine Economy. Already since an early age he was involved heavily in the Blockchain ecosystem, with his first (unsuccessful) startup in Switzerland in 2013 at the age of 17. He is the Co-Founder of IOTA, a disruptive new technology that enables machines to store and send money frictionlessly between one another. In 2017 he co-founded the IOTA Foundation and established Germany?s first non-profit foundation which enables and fosters permissionless ecosystems powered by distributed ledgers. Currently he co-leads the IOTA Foundation and oversees the overall realization of the vision and the partnerships with multinational companies, NGO?s and governments. The main challenge he?s working on right now is how to bring a nascent technology like IOTA to market-readiness - and thus unleash its full potential for society to benefit from it. About The IOTA Foundation The IOTA Foundation was established in Germany as a formal, non-profit organisation (?gemeinnützige Stiftung?) in 2017 by Dominik Schiener and David Sønstebø. In order to drive the future economy of interconnected and autonomous devices, the IOTA Founders developed the ideas behind IOTA and the Tangle architecture on which it is based and organized a crowdsale at the end of 2015 to help fund its development. Raising a little over $500k USD worth of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and without any pre-allocation or special treatment of any kind to any of the Founders or developers, the entire token supply (which can never change) was distributed pro-rata to the crowdsale participants on the genesis transaction. Subsequently, the IOTA Founders asked these initial IOTA token holders to donate a portion of their holdings back, receiving roughly 5% of the total IOTA token supply, to endow what would ultimately become the IOTA Foundation which was officially chartered in Berlin, Germany on November 3rd, 2017. The IOTA Founders designed the foundational layer of IOTA to be open-source, free to use and led by an independent and neutral non-profit entity that could bring together governments and industries to help achieve the IOTA vision.

The Decred social contract is different from Bitcoin
April 17, 2019 9:29 AM This post is a reaction to the essay ?Unpacking Bitcoin?s Social Contract? by Hasu, which uses social contract theory to give readers a better understanding of what Bitcoin is. This text does the exact same for Decred. Bitcoin is a novel social and economic institution. It is so different from our existing institutions that we should be skeptical and ask many hard, pressing questions before we can trust Bitcoin with any economic value. Decred is an iteration of the Bitcoin protocol. Similar questions need to be asked before we can trust Decred with any economic value. The text relies heavily on Hasu?s essay to explain social contract theory and how it can help us to better understand Bitcoin and Decred. Many sentences will reuse or re-purpose his words. You can read the original essay here:

Mysterium Network Golang Meetup - January 30 - 20:30 Golang interops: reincarnation of C++ library [EN] Tadas Valiukas / Golang engineer @ Mysterium
January 27, 2019 9:24 PM Meetup at new Visma office. All talks will be presented in English language. Food & drinks are provided by our sponsor UBER. Venue is provided by our sponsor Visma. Agenda 18:30. Free pizza && beer (free as beer) before presentations! Provided by our sponsor UBER. 19:00. Concurrency in hardware, in OS, and in Go Alexey Pavlenko / Senior Software Engineer @ UBER Concurrent programming is hard. People tend to make mistakes when more than one thread is involved, no matter what language is used. It?s hard to build and maintain a plausible model in one?s head, because our brains normally work differently. Sometimes I understand how it works and can spot a bug in a diff. I use several principles that I would like to share within this presentation. 20:30 Golang interops: reincarnation of C++ library Tadas Valiukas / Golang engineer @ Mysterium.network Go is an amazing language with a rich set of features out of the box. But sometimes you find yourself in situations, where the library you need so much is written in a different language. Here in Mysterium Network, we found ourselves in this situation with OpenVPN integration into our Go code base. In this presentation, Tadas Valiukas - one of Mysterium Network?s main contributors is going to share the long journey we took. We?ll be discussing the dragons we had to slay, the swamps we had to swim through and mountains we had to climb and what reward was waiting behind the rainbow. Contact us if you'd like to talk in upcoming meetups! Call (Povilas) if you'll face any problems reaching the place.

Decred Launches Debug Decred Bug Bounty Program
January 26, 2019 10:11 PM If 2018 was the year of the crypto crash, 2019 will be the year of building, as speculation subsides and serious projects come to the forefront. In the spirit of building, the developers behind top cryptocurrency Decred have been behind the scenes creating a community-driven digital currency that aims to be a superior store of value for generations to come. In just three years, they?ve built a transparent proposal and voting system, a continually funded treasury, and a hybrid PoW+PoS consensus mechanism that make the cryptocurrency adaptable, self-sustaining, and secure. But a lot has to happen before Decred?s vision of building a self-governed, decentralized future ruled by collective intelligence can become a reality. As the crypto space matures, 51% attacks and other vulnerabilities are increasing in frequency???throwing into stark relief the need to improve our overall security posture, and to get a fresh set of eyes on our code and websites. That?s why, today, Decred is announcing an official bug bounty program. Devs of all backgrounds, including newbies to Decred, are invited to hunt for security vulnerabilities???and get paid for it.

The role of Decred voters in defending against majority attacks
January 25, 2019 4:20 PM This post introduces the concept of a majority (51%) attack and gives a short account of the role that Decred?s voters play in defending against these. I will briefly describe how majority attacks against Proof of Work (PoW) currencies work first, then explain how the additional Proof of Stake (PoS) component changes the dynamic in Decred?s case. Performing a double spend attack means having the power to reorg (reorganize, or rewrite) the blockchain. In pure PoW currencies like Bitcoin this comes down to hashpower. Here?s a simplified account of this kind of attack: Spend in block X by sending to an exchange, start mining a parallel chain in private (don?t broadcast blocks to the network). Once the required number of confirmations have passed, trade the coins for something else and withdraw that from the exchange. When the withdrawal clears, release the parallel chain, and if it has more PoW (blocks) than the chain everyone else was mining and transacting on, the network will accept it as the legitimate chain and the version of history represented by the previous chain (including the attacker?s deposit) will disappear. The attacker is then free to spend these coins again.

Bitcoin and Decred as Store of Value investments
January 25, 2019 2:19 PM With the increase of institutional investment in cryptocurrencies, crypto with fundamental value will outperform. Utility tokens have less investment value because people are not incentivized to hold the coin, which doesn't help value to accrue. Investors should only invest in Store of Value cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin and Decred are the two best investment candidates. Before I explain where fundamental value lies in crypto, I would like to reiterate the potential upside of cryptocurrencies as a whole. Many investors are not aware that cryptocurrencies can be an excellent addition to a traditional portfolio with equities and fixed income. Apollo Capital showed that a portfolio with 2% allocation to crypto significantly outperformed a traditional portfolio.
