Support the show, consider donating: 1HK9HmWCTVvA6hH6nVQ33fycbU5ZrEFgwf (http://bit.ly/2huTEdi) Few crypto projects have gotten as much attention and caused as much controversy as Steem. The blockchain-based social media platform launched early this year and managed to gain real user traction building up a vibrant community of contributors. The Steem token quickly entered bubble territory reaching a market cap of almost $400m and losing 90% of its value since. Steem Co-Founder and CEO Ned Scott joined us to discuss the ambition of the project and its short tumultous history. We also discussed some of the accusations against Steem and its unorthodox launch. Topics discussed in this episode: - How Steem was launched out of the BitShares community - The different components and tokens of the Steem system - How Steem rewards content contributors - The controversial Steem launch and criticisms of the project - Why Steem transitioned from Proof-of-Work to Proof-of-Stake - The potential disbalance of power due to the Steem distribution - How Steem managed to build a vibrant user community Links mentioned in this episode: - Steem Website: https://steem.io/ - Steemit.com: https://steemit.com/ - Why Every Blockchain Needs a Constitution: https://steemit.com/blockchain/@dan/why-every-blockchain-needs-a-constitution - Charlie Shrem Article on Steem Launch: https://steemit.com/steem/@charlieshrem/was-the-launch-of-steem-a-scam-or-the-only-legal-way-thoughts-on-steem-by-charlie-shrem-a-week-later - The History of Steem Launch in Words of Dan Larimer: https://steemit.com/steem/@joseph/the-history-of-steem-steemit-launch-in-the-words-of-dan-larimer-from-the-early-launch-days - Bitcoin Talk Thread on Steem Launch: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1427230.0 - Bitcoin Stackexchange: What is Steem?: http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/46007/what-is-steem-and-steemit Sponsors: - Ledger: Smart card security for your Bitcoins - Get 10% off your first order when you use the code EPICENTER - http://ledgerwallet.com - Jaxx: Wallets that Unify the Blockchain Experience Across Devices - http://jaxx.io This episode is also available on : - Epicenter.tv: https://epicenter.tv/162 - YouTube: http://youtu.be/gg_MHqXa4yI - Souncloud: http://soundcloud.com/epicenterbitcoin/eb-162 Watch or listen, Epicenter is available wherever you get your podcasts.

International Trade Solution on Blockchain
International trading involves many participants all around the globe. These participants may not necessarily have the needed trust of all parties, especially at the initial stages, when newcomers join the trade. Blockchain can provide the needed trust to capture key transaction activities as immutable records, as well as storing and sharing encrypted legal and financial documents. Visibility of transaction records and documents are tightly controlled by blockchain, permitting sharing only among entrusted and allowed parties. In this demo, IBM demonstrates how blockchain may support such an application.

Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamper-proof public ledger of value. As with major paradigm shifts which preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored.

Is the Blockchain a Trojan Horse Behind Wall Street's Walled Garden?
The Bitcoin/blockchain industry's flagship annual conference was held this week in New York City, and there were 1500 attendees and 150 speakers. Eight years after this technology was first described in a nine-page paper dropped on the internet by a mysterious computer scientist, interest is suddenly exploding among blue chip financial firms, who are exploring how Bitcoin and blockchains can make their operations more efficient. Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, a Democrat, pitched a new initiative to draw companies in this space to relocate to his state; former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers touted the blockchain's disruptive potential; and Microsoft, the once lumbering tech giant, was out in force, embracing blockchain technology with the hope of finally getting a jump on its competitors. The mainstream interest on display was a little surreal for Erik Voorhees, a libertarian who got involved with Bitcoin in 2011, launched the gambling platform SatoshiDice the following year, and now heads ShapeShift, a cryptocurrency exchange. "If you look at the Bitcoin/blockchain industry today, are most of them libertarians, I don't know," said Voorhees. "Mostly it's just business people, but that's fine. Business people will grow the system and to me it doesn't matter because the freedom that the asset brings to people happens on the back of the technology." But the buzzword at this year's conference was blockchain, not bitcoin, a distinction that's indicative of mainstream misgivings about working with a system that's open for anyone to use. Many banks are partnering with companies building so-called private blockchains that mimic some aspects of Bitcoin's architecture except they're designed to be closed off and accessible only to chosen parties. "The big companies want to improve themselves [but] they don't want to disrupt themselves," said William Mougayar, an investor and author of a new business guide to the blockchain industry that draws analogies to the early days of the internet, when open access drove rapid innovation. "Big companies like to talk about using the blockchain without Bitcoin and using maybe 10 percent of the capabilities that Bitcoin has given us," says Mougayar. "And I think it is a mistake." But Voorhees is confident that open and permission less blockchains will ultimately prevail even in the banking sector simply because they're more efficient. "I have no problem with the financial industry inviting the Trojan Horse of blockchain technology into their walled garden," says Voorhees. "Because I know how powerful the technology is." On Monday morning, just as the conference was getting underway in New York, the industry was abuzz. Craig Wright, a 45-year-old Australian computer scientist, had just publicly declared that he is Satoshi Nakamoto, the man who created Bitcoin under that pseudonym eight years ago. The claim was given credence by Gavin Andresen, the chief scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation, who flew to London last month to meet Wright and vet his story. Meanwhile, other prominent figures in the community disputed the evidence and labeled Wright a likely imposter, including Vitalik Buterin, the creator of the popular blockchain platform Ethereum. By day two of the conference, Wright wrote on his blog that he would provide "extraordinary proof" to support his claim, and then two days later he took it back, saying that he didn't have the courage. So why does this question bring up such strong feelings within the industry? "If you have a hero who's kind of mythical that everyone can project whatever they want onto him," says Buterin. "Whereas if it turns into a real living, breathing figure...you can criticize his tax history, and his sex life, and it's a totally different story." Satoshi's mysterious identity helped Bitcoin attract such an ideologically diverse following by allowing its devotees to attach their own meanings to this hard-to-define technology. But most people, including Buterin, agree that today it's taken on a life of its own. "The incentives built into the system are really beautiful," says Gavin Andresen. "And so a lot of people have an incentive to make it work." "It's gratifying to see events like this," says Andresen, who played a key role in building support for Bitcoin in its early days. "It shows that if you have a great technology and you make it open and available to the world, the world will eventually notice. It might take a few years. But people will notice."

ICO performance tracker
Ethereum`s smart contracts platform has gathered lots of attention from a vast range of industries since it could potentially be utilized to digitize and streamline inefficient business processes later on. The majority of the altcoin technologies continue to be significantly underdeveloped. As it is a JavaScript run-time environment, it`ll be familiar to the majority of programmers and therefore will permit you access to an immense pool of talented software developers. Better management indeed should work as a catalyst for those investors. It`s supplied for informational services only. Hence, it might be used for IoT networks, that`s the project`s aim.
The token will be essential to execute many kinds of transactions within the network, like the majority of the token schemes that will do the job. The token will be called ICX and it is going to be one of many that may be transacted in the computer system. The IOTA token is the sole major digital currency that doesn`t use a complete blockchain to conduct transactions.
Each blockchain is made for a particular intent. In general, blockchain powered systems appear to supply benefits to everyone. The really exciting portion of blockchain is the fact that it operates on a decentralized network as opposed to via the traditional client-server model.
The portfolio management tool is user friendly and powerful, giving users an easy and effective approach to make and manage portfolios. It lets users produce and manage portfolios in an easy and efficient way. You should think about whether the info is appropriate to your demands, and where appropriate, seek expert help from a financial adviser. The info is general in nature and doesn`t take into consideration your own personal situation. Let`s take a good look at the site`s features. 12 months past, a number of these review sites didn`t exist. For a bit more on how to make a great looking website you`re able to read this report.
