New Zealand Bank Shares Belief in Blockchain

SBS Bank in New Zealand seems to be considering using blockchain technology as a way to provide an improved user experience for their clients.


While some financial institutions are vehemently denying their customers’ interest in cryptocurrencies, New Zealand’s SBS Bank is taking a more pro-active approach.

According to The Southland Times, virtual currencies and blockchain technology were two of the topics discussed at the bank’s recent annual meeting. While the former still has the power to elicit skepticism, the latter is definitely a keen point of interest. The bank’s group chief executive, Shaun Drylie, explained:

We think, and the common consensus is, that it has real merit. Cryptocurrencies, we’re not too sure, and if you look at the volatility of cryptocurrencies that would suggest the market is not too sure as well.

However, this does not mean that there won’t be a possible place for cryptocurrencies in the bank’s future. Drylie added:

We’re keeping a close eye on it, but it’s very hard to pick where it’s going to go long term.

SBS chief executive, Shaun Drylie

Banking for All

Exploring the uses of blockchain technology is part of the institution’s plan to make banking more efficient for its existing clientele and more inclusive for its potential customers. They hope to provide a comprehensive banking experience to those clients who have limited access to their physical branches.

Financial inclusivity is a popular term when discussing the benefits of blockchain. This could be in the form of allowing the unbanked population, or those with restricted access to economic assistance, to easily get credit or apply for a loan.

All of the applicant’s information could be stored and easily accessed via the distributed ledger, making the reams of paper seemingly synonymous with loan applications a thing of the past. With SBS seeing an 11 percent increase in loan approvals, this could be where blockchain could make a difference.

No Stranger to Blockchain

This is not the first bank in the country that has turned to blockchain technology. The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) and IBM have previously collaborated to create a more systematic and efficient solution to insurance reconciliation processes. The financial institution also used blockchain to digitize their previously paper-based bank guarantee process.

However, interest may soon turn more to virtual currencies with the possible introduction of Bitcoin ETFs. Major player Cboe Global Markets has filed an application with The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for approval thereof. Bitcoin futures trading, which began late last year, has also seen growth since it launched.

Do you think that more banks will turn to blockchain technology to replace their paper-based systems? Let us know in the comments below!

IOTA Smart City Project Granted €20 Million in EU Funding

The +CityxChange consortium, which includes the IOTA Foundation, has won a bid to lead a new smart city lighthouse project under an EU research and innovation program. A total of €30 million euros worth of backing has been committed, the majority from the EU, for seven EU cities to experiment with smart positive energy innovations.


A total of 25 enterprises and organizations, including distributed ledger technology innovator IOTA, form the +CityxChange consortium. The group, which will be led by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in the project, competed against 11 other proposals to become the lighthouse project for developing energy independent cities.

Blockchain Technology to Improve Quality of Life in European Cities

Over the next five years, the European cities of Trondheim, Limerick, Alba Iulia, Pisek, Sestao, Smolyan, and Voru will experiment with using digital services, including blockchain and peer-to-peer technology, to improve quality of life and generate more energy than they consume. Their experiences will be shared with cities across Europe to continue the wider development of the smart city ethos.

The funding of €20 million euros will be provided by the European Research and Innovation program Horizon 2020. Some of the project partners will add €10 million euros of “in-kind” efforts towards local implementation of demonstration projects in Trondheim and Limerick.

The +CityxChange project was commended by independent experts for showing that it will contribute to the wider roll-out of “Positive Energy Districts” across Europe.

The energy solutions proposed will include local governments and residents “involving the entire district energy value chain, extending to high-level policymakers and cities, universities, large enterprises, distributed network operators, SMEs, and not for profit organizations.”

Aligned with IOTA

Aligned with IOTA

Describing the project as “100% aligned” with the IOTA Foundation’s DNA and an ambitious open innovation, Wilfried Pimenta, Head of Business Development at the IOTA Foundation said:

Smart cities is one of the fastest growing cross-sectorial arenas of innovation for IOTA. Building on our work and partnerships across mobility, energy or data marketplace, these smart city ecosystems bring it all together.

The Norwegian co-founder of the IOTA Foundation David Sønstebø is excited about the project and to be working with Norway’s largest university NTNU:

Being able to explore and demonstrate the utility of IOTA within the smart city context in numerous cities across Europe will be incredibly valuable going forward.

The enterprises, universities, and not-for-profits involved include:

IES R&D, Powel AS, University of Limerick, Energy Agency of Plovdiv, Future Analytics Consulting, Research2Market Solutions, ISOCARP, TrønderEnergi Kraft AS, ABB Norway, ATB, AVIS Budget Group, Statkraft Varme AS, ESB Innovation RoI Ltd, ESB Networks, Ove Arup & Partners SAU, FourC AS, R.Kjeldsberg, Smart MPower, Space Engagers, Colaborativa, Officinae Verdi, NHP Eiendom, and GKinetic Energy Ltd.

+CityxChange aims to help the cities involved in the project achieve their goal of sustainability, with zero emissions, and 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Do you think fully sustainable city ecosystems are possible? Can blockchain and distributed ledger technology help to achieve this?

Controversial Malware Targets MacOS Users Through Slack and Discord

Security researchers have revealed that a controversial malware is targeting MacOS users talking about cryptocurrencies on Slack and Discord.


“Dumb” MacOS Attack

The malware was first reported by Remco Verhoef of SANS. He explained that the attacks would impersonate “key people” in chats which are related to cryptocurrencies and then share malicious scripts.

The wrongdoers would try to encourage users to paste the script into the Terminal window of their Macs which would send a command to download 34MB file and execute it. In turn, this would establish a remote connection which would act as a backdoor for the hackers.

The obvious flaws in the plan of the attackers caught the attention of Patrick Wardle, a Mac malware expert. In a more detailed blog post, he noted that:

  • the infection method is dumb
  • the massive size of the binary is dumb
  • the persistence mechanism is lame (and thus also dumb)
  • the capabilities are rather limited (and thus rather dumb)
  • it’s trivial to detect at every step (that dumb)
  • … and finally, the malware saves the user’s password to dumpdummy

Common Sense is the Only Protection You Need

The binary executes a set of libraries, including those of Open SSL, which encrypt its communications back to the server. Remco Verhoef managed to establish that the bash script attempts to connect to a system which belongs to CrownCloud – a German hosting provider.

Once the binary is executed, it would provide the attacker with the ability to successfully execute command-line codes as if he is the root user of the MacOS which is infected.

In order for this to happen, however, the owner of the Mac needs to enter a password, allowing the script to go on. Ironically, the script would store said password in a temporary file which is named “dumpdummy,” as noted by Wardle.

In other words, all you have to do to prevent this malware from causing any damage is refrain from pasting a script provided to you by someone on Slack or Discord on your Terminal window.

What do you think of this malware targeting MacOS users? Don’t hesitate to let us know in the comments below.

What Does the Future of ICO Advertising Look Like?

· June 14, 2018 · 10:00 pm

Due to the notorious volatility and unregulated nature of cryptocurrencies, many organizations and even governments are jumping on the bandwagon to ban them.


As we move further into 2018, even the big tech firms are starting to put their foot down on crypto advertising. Such a huge widespread ban has the potential to severely hinder the future development of the crypto industry.

Google and Facebook Have Banned ICO Advertisements

Some of the Internet’s largest advertising platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, have completely banned any advertisements promoting ICOs and cryptocurrencies.

As of June, even Google will be banning the advertisement of crypto – including ICOs, wallets, and exchanges, etc.

 There has been a lot of speculation as to why this has happened. Some speculate that it is merely an attempt to protect their users (and their reputation) from fraudulent ICO and token scams and Ponzi schemes, while others have even suggested that these websites could be feeling threatened by the increasing popularity of blockchain technology.

But regardless of the reasons behind these bans, one thing is becoming clear – ICO marketing has become increasingly difficult.

 ICOs Are Looking for New Ways to Gain Exposure

As it stands, some of the main ways to promote ICOs include:

  •  Going on a roadshow and speaking at conferences to elicit interest, growing a brand and being exposed to potential investors.
  •  Ordering press releases and getting them published on popular websites that are frequented by crypto enthusiasts.
  •  Joining in discussions on popular social media websites – such as Facebook groups, Reddit, Telegram, Quora, LinkedIn groups, and specialized forums.

If you really want to succeed, it’s likely you’re going to have to leverage all of these methods and more.

Hopefully, after a while – if your offer is good enough – your idea will spread among users through word of mouth and you’ll be able to tone down your efforts slightly. But until then, you need to work hard to get your message out.

Can Decentralized Platforms Be A Powerful Channel to Promote ICOs?

One up-and-coming blockchain platform, known as 2Key, is introducing a brand-new model that rewards users for sharing valuable information.

It might just be the new go-to platform for blockchain startups looking to gain exposure.

2Key is a decentralized global referral network. Its goal is to become the go-to platform used to share information about products, services, and events. The platform encourages the free-flow of valuable information through human referral chains.

This is made possible through the platform’s Multi-Step tracking technology that makes it possible to track and reward every user involved in the link-sharing chains.

Using this technology, anyone can easily create their own referral link based on a smart contract, define their goal (such as more exposure, leads, or sales), and incentivize the human network to share this message to achieve it.

It even incentivizes users to share beneficial information by directly rewarding them with tokens.

As time progresses and 2Key continues to develop, the platform could become the go-to solution that ICO organizers choose instead of running bounties for their users.

 Another platform that’s built a lot of momentum is Wings.AI.

While the core functionality is to forecast and predict the amount an upcoming ICO is going to raise, the benefit Wings can bring to the table is ICO discovery and word-to-mouth buzz marketing.

The Wings community is comprised of crypto enthusiasts and investors that are constantly seeking new projects to evaluate. Through the Wings platform, users are exposed to new projects on a weekly basis, and they are required to run due diligence evaluate the project and share their findings on social media and on the Wings platform.

In some cases, this can create a network effect, where thousands of people engage with a project, ask questions, provide feedback and discuss it with each other.

How Are Users Rewarded?

With 2Key’s case, the platform features its own multi-party state channels protocol. This allows links to automatically perform self-tracking and information sharing as they are distributed.

This enables 2Key’s smart contracts to automatically reward the entire chain whenever a result is achieved.

Users will be rewarded with the 2Key Ethereum utility tokens in return for successfully referring other users. These tokens can be exchanged or used to purchase other services within the network.

With Wings.AI, users are rewarded in tokens based on how accurate their predictions were.

This incentivizes users to run a good due diligence, improve their rating on the Wings platform and grow their reputation.

 The Future of Advertising

There are a huge number of predictions about how advertising will change in the future that can be applied to the ICO industry.

Perhaps one of the biggest changes we will witness is the ever-increasing personalization of advertising.

Long gone are the days when the best way to advertise was to put up a massive banner advert in the middle of the city center that would attract the attention of everyone who passed by.

In today’s society, the best advertising is that which is highly targeted. A study by Rocket Fuel revealed that 80% of Millennials see value in brands engaging them with personalized offers.

Platforms like 2Key that are part of the moment shifting advertising away from the hands of big brands, back into the control of the human network, could act as a major catalyst for changing the future of advertising.

Keplertek: How Robotics and AI on the Blockchain Will Change the Future Forever

· June 9, 2018 · 8:00 pm

Keplertek recently finished its Pre-Sale, thus concluding the final stage of its Pre-ICO. In total, all of the pre-sale tokens sold out within the first seven days — an incredible achievement that the team is understandably proud of. There is more and more talk about this amazing project, and rightfully so — so let’s take a deeper look at what makes Kepler Technologies truly special. 


Robotics and AI on the Blockchain

Robotics and AI are some of the most disruptive technologies in our world – they’re already very real and about to change the world for the better.

Imagine a future that is shaped by the way we interact with technology, and not by the tiring quest of actually getting there – this is where Keplertek comes in.

By combining these three exciting fields of technology and providing the infrastructure needed for geniuses to work on their projects without having to go through the tedious process of fundraising and finding experienced and competent members, Keplertek will enable thousands of interesting projects to be realized instead of drowning in bureaucracy and vanishing forever.

Georgia: Tech Hub of the Future

Georgia is known for being a very tech-friendly country that gives its best to support up-and-coming companies that try to change the world of today by inventing the technology of tomorrow. It’s not only one of the countries with the most miners and mining companies, but also very interested in fostering innovation.

Its geographical proximity to both Europe and Asia is one of the most important and decisive factors in terms of international trade, allowing Keplertek to forge important partnerships throughout the entire world. This is further strengthened by a very accommodating tax policy, seeing as the total tax rate is 16.4 percent (percentage of profits). This allows businesses to flourish and grow organically.

One of the Biggest Teams

One of the Biggest Teams

Keplertek has over 50 employees working around the clock in its Tbilisi office, ensuring the launch of KEP and Kepler Universe will go as smoothly as possible.

With over 100 more team members working from abroad and in R&D, Keplertek is without a doubt one of the (if not THE) biggest projects in the ICO space at the moment.

Strong Social Media Presence

Keplertek has a Telegram group with over 86.000 members and a lot of interesting discussion about the project and the general evolution of cryptocurrencies. It is always possible to get your questions answered by an Admin and partake in activities like quizzes with KEP rewards — strengthening the community even further.

Keplertek is also on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn — take a look and get to know the dedicated team behind this project even better!

All in all, Kepler can be considered the most interesting project in the cryptocurrency space at the moment.

Register now to complete KYC and participate in the ICO, starting on June 26th and lasting until July 17th. However, it’s better to hurry – if Pre-Sale is anything to go by, all tokens will be sold considerably sooner!

Don’t miss your chance, get ready to invest in a limitless future and take advantage of the 20 percent bonus on all purchases during the first round of ICO!

Blockchain Technology to Combat Dodgy Ticket Resales

· May 6, 2018 · 6:00 pm

Secondary ticketing in the UK is a billion-dollar problem, one that Aventus hopes to solve with blockchain technology.


Whether it’s your favorite football match or your music idol’s concert, front-row tickets are probably what you’re after. However, if they happen to be sold out by the time you can afford them, you might be tempted to purchase these tickets from unscrupulous secondary parties.

Prepare to be met with counterfeit tickets and sky-high prices. According to The Guardian, secondary tickets for shows for big artists, such as Adele, can fetch up to $12,000. Preventing these so-called ticket touts seems to be a decades-old issue, but something that blockchain technology could solve.

Blockchain to the Rescue

Annika Monari and Alan Vey, who are the founders of Aventus, will have the opportunity to test this theory at the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia. Their blockchain-based program will be used for more than 10,000 tickets to fan events in the US and Europe.

By using blockchain technology, the records for each ticket will be immutable and therefore protected against counterfeiting. Essentially, each ticket will be linked to its owner, which will combat fraud.

By doing this, Monari and Vey, who both have degrees in Artificial Intelligence and Particle Physics, have said that Aventus will “virtually eliminate ticketing fraud and the scourge of unregulated touting”.

A New Solution for an Old Problem

A New Solution for an Old Problem

The Aventus founders discussed their excitement at working towards a solution for this problem:

“It has been an amazing journey. We used to sit in this common room having coffees and worrying about our coursework. But now, hopefully, we will be the people who can solve the problems in the ticketing industry. That would feel incredible and be such a huge achievement for us.”

The platform’s ICO in September last year sold out in just seven minutes, raising a total of just over $35 million.

Positive Impact

Professor Mike Waterson from Warwick University acted as a technical advisor to Monari and Vey. He had this to say:

“It has a lot of potential. Thinking through the market from a fresh perspective is very useful. If they get genuine buy-in from a wide enough range of people then it is going to have a big impact on the market.”

Expanding Blockchain-based Solutions

Waterson also conducted a government report into the secondary ticket industry, including ticket sales for Premier League games. This is also an issue that Aventus hopes to help with. The platform will be working with another blockchain-based platform, Blocside, for the FIFA World Cup initiative, but hope to expand their offerings to Premier League football clubs soon.

Ticket fraud is quite a lucrative industry in the UK, with an annual value of about $1.3 billion. Bernie Dillon, an entertainment industry expert, discussed how Aventus could make a difference:

“Anyone who has ever attended, hosted, or produced a live entertainment event has been affected by counterfeit tickets or extortionate resale prices. Aventus brings a refreshing solution that could end fraudulent activity and ticket touting once and for all.”

Samsung Delves Deeper into Crypto Exploring Blockchain for Its Logistics

· April 16, 2018 · 5:00 pm

Samsung Electronics Co. is the latest big name to show a keen interest in the powers of blockchain technology, specifically, how it can be incorporated into their supply chain management processes.


Even though cryptocurrencies may still be getting critiqued, it’s supporting technology is being more readily adopted. The advantages of blockchain such as security and immutability, are major drawcards for companies that rely heavily on record keeping, such as healthcare, finance, and even art.

Blockchain to aid in shipping

However, it is also a viable option for supply chain management, an option that massive electronics corporation, Samsung, is ready to explore. According to Bloomberg Quint, the company’s logistical and information and technology branch, Samsung SDS CO., could use a blockchain ledger to monitor their billion-dollar global shipments sector.

Song Kwang-woo, the blockchain chief at SDS, touched on how the technology could revolutionize other businesses:

It will have an enormous impact on the supply chains of manufacturing industries. Blockchain is a core platform to fuel our digital transformation.

A cost-effective way of working

A part of this digital transformation is working towards a paperless way of doing business. Not only are physical documents annoying, they’re expensive too. In fact, according to International Business Machines Corp., the documentation costs for container shipments is more than double that of other modes of transportation.

When it comes to Samsung shipments, this equals a substantial amount of money. For this year alone, SDS projects that the company will transport 488,000 tons of air cargo and one million 20-foot-equivalent (TEU) shipping units. The SDS has said that by implementing blockchain technology, the company could save as much as 20% in shipping fees.

It’s not just about saving money though. Blockchain technology could actually impact on overall customer satisfaction. This is because efficiency associated with this technology could mean a shorter time span between product launches and product shipment. Not only will that keep Samsung customers smiling, it will also give the company a competitive edge over their industry rivals.

Cheong Tae-su, who is a professor of industrial engineering at Korea University, explained a bit further:

“It cuts overhead and eliminates bottlenecks. It’s about maximizing supply efficiency and visibility, which translates into greater consumer confidence.”

What’s more, Samsung appears to be going all-in into cryptocurrencies in general as it recently announced manufacturing mining chips. This move that puts them in direct competition with the Taiwan-based company, TSMC, a preferred ASIC chip supplier to Bitmain.

Samsung joins an ever-growing list

Samsung isn’t the only global company big on blockchain. Mastercard recently announced that they will soon be hiring blockchain experts to help drive innovation with regard to payment solutions.

Governments are also realizing its benefits, with China financially contributing towards blockchain-based startups. In addition, the European Union has launched the EU Blockchain Observatory and Forum, which aims to foster blockchain promotion.

The blockchain business is definitely booming. The US-based research company, Gartner, has predicted that the technology will add $176 billion USD worth of value to businesses by 2025. This number is set to increase to over $3 trillion by 2030.

What do you think of yet another big corporation using blockchain technology? Let us know in the comments below!

How to Secure Your Cryptocurrency Wallet: 16 Simple Tips for Beginners

· November 17, 2017 · 10:00 pm

Literally millions of people have joined the world of cryptocurrencies recently. For example, Coinbase, one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges, has added around 2 million new clients within two months. Blockchain.com, the major electronic wallet, found its client base increase by 1.8 million during the same time frame.


Most of these people are newbies, unacquainted with security issues and risks that surround complex but currently profitable cryptocurrency realm. This makes them easy targets for cybercriminals and thieves.

One popular crime which is conducted on cryptocurrency traders is the phone-porting attack. Crooks monitor social media in search of cryptocurrency discussions wherein people publish their emails and phone numbers for quick connection. After that, hackers use various social engineering techniques and posing as a victim, call the telephone provider and trick the customer support rep into transferring the telephone number to a phone they control. As soon as hackers take charge of the telephone number, they log in to the victim’s wallet or exchange account, reset the password and subsequently snatch all funds from the account.

A phone number is not the only security weak point. Hackers may get hold of your home PC too. Phishing attacks, Ponzi schemes, and ransomware are all widespread forms of cryptocurrency fraud and theft. Nothing teaches a person about security quicker than cybercriminals hacking his account and running off with $5,000 worth of Bitcoins. Once this happens, people tend to get really serious about their security.

So, what is the best method to safeguard your cryptocurrency assets from hacks? We must confess there is no ideal approach to the problem. In this digital age, hard drives, laptops, and phones are becoming the brand new bank vaults. Real-world experience and understanding of how to protect money from thieves are not sufficient for the virtual money.

How to Secure Your Crypto Wallet Like a Boss

How to Secure Your Crypto Wallet Like a Boss

The following tips can be used as a security guide for new cryptocurrency aficionados:

  1. Securing your software wallet is similar to protecting any data on your computer. You have to be a little more paranoid while browsing the Internet, clicking on links and email attachments.
  2. Mobile users may take advantage of Google authenticator with a single IP in its whitelist, which should be the VPN to access the online exchange.
  3. It is important to select an exchange that is not only flexible and easy to use but also reputable and secure. Try to follow the news. If industry leaders disengage from a project it should be a worrying signal. Repeated technical problems and strange policies are additional points of concern. Bitcoin withdrawal difficulties will always be a red flag also.
  4. Do create backups. Kept in a secure place, a backup of your cryptocurrency wallet may save you from hardware failures and a lot of human slipups. It will also let you restore your wallet in case your PC or telephone gets stolen.
  5. Encrypting the wallet or your hole device enables you to create a password for those attempting to take out any money.
  6. Although passwords and encryption can protect from thieves, it is not able to put a stop to key-loggers or another malware. It is important to install and keep up-to-date leading antivirus and antimalware solutions. Many of them are free to use.
  7. Prior to creating an account on any exchange, set up a new email box that you will be using for that specific exchange account.
  8. Be sure to choose a very difficult and lengthy password, desirably a passphrase. Write it down on paper and store that piece of paper in a secret place.
  9. Turn on two-factor-authorization not only for login but for any transaction procedures.
  10. While on social media or forums, do not mention what cryptocurrency exchange or wallet you use.
  11. Contact your phone carrier and order all possible levels of security they can offer. Add passcodes, secret questions, pins, etc. Additionally, enable the “do not port” option for any new SIM card.
  12. Web exchanges and wallets all claim they treat security very seriously and implement all necessary protection technologies to prevent breaches and unauthorized transactions. Do not trust these words. Such companies are not banks; they often do not have the same level of security. And even banks get robbed often.
  13. Do not store all Bitcoins in one wallet or exchange. Diversify your risks. It is extremely difficult to steal money from several wallets at once, particularly when you set different email accounts and passphrases for each of them.
  14. Consider keeping big cryptocurrency sums in cold wallets off the Internet. The cold wallet is a technology of keeping Bitcoins offline on hard drives or even paper. Hackers will not be able to reach your funds. On the contrary, the hot wallet is linked to the Internet. It should be used for everyday transactions and is like a checking account, whereas cold wallet may represent your savings account.
  15. Consider examining decentralized exchanges. The difference between decentralized and centralized exchanges is that decentralized exchange does not store your funds. Nobody can gain access to your money except you.
  16. Tell your peers and especially close friends and relatives to embrace the same attitude and mindset. Ecosystems, where all participants treat security seriously, are less attractive to cybercriminals.

Try to always help beginners to buy and sell with security. This territory is new and we should assist people who are trying to find their way. Fortunately, you do not have to be a cryptography professional to make the first security steps which will save you from most of the problems.

Do you take any additional wallet security measures that are not on this list? Let us know in the comments below.
