• Going Quantum Resistant In Blockchain: A Plausible Timeframe?
    CryptoCurrency Technology Focused Discussions - 8 hours ago
    Upgrading BTC and other existing blockchains to quantum resistance is always portrayed as an easy and quick fix. But besides the the fact that the technical challenges are ignored in these discussions, the timeframe is very likely to be quite extensive. Meaning that planning of this type of upgrades should…
  • A deep dive into Masternode security and how we think that has been approved with the Sinovate solution.
    CryptoCurrency Technology Focused Discussions - 3 days ago
    https://medium.com/@moorent99/sinovate-infinity-nodes-vs-masternodes-3a6db06df4fa This a blog post I wrote about Sinovate and their "Infinity Nodes" vs. usual masternodes.

Anyone know of any actual functional supply chain applications of blockchains that have…
  • How to 51% attack bitcoin - how feasible it is and compares alt coins using PoW
    CryptoCurrency Technology Focused Discussions - 1 week ago
    This article explores what a 51% attack on bitcoin might look like but pretty much says it's not feasible not only due to acquisition of hash power but moving the funds. It also looks at some alt coins who are more susceptible than btc to the attack http://lacker.io/crypto/2019/10/07/how-to-51-attack-bitcoin.html submitted…
