Blokklánc alapú alkalmazásfejlesztés – a monolit rendszerektől a platform megoldásokig Általánosságban elmondható, hogy a blokklánc alapú alkalmazások architektúrája elég sokat fejlődött az elmúlt évek során (első ábra).

Smart Money VCs Pump Brakes On Bitcoin & Blockchain Companies

Összeszakadt a Bitcoin! 2017.05.27 10:02 Portfolio.hu Hatalmas emelkedés után nagyot zuhant több kriptodeviza árfolyama az elmúlt szűk két napban. Egészen elképesztő ralin van túl a Bitcoin, a kriptodeviza árfolyama május elején még 1300 dollár körül állt, ezen a héten csütörtökön azonban már 2800 dollár közelébe emelkedett az árfolyam, vagyis kevesebb mint egy hónap alatt több mint duplájára emelkedett a kurzus. A héten már sokan egyértelmű lufiról beszéltek és azt találgatták, hogy mikor pukkan ki, nagyon úgy tűnik, hogy ez az idő eljött. Mint ahogy arra számítani lehetett, amilyen meredek volt az emelkedés, olyan meredek lett az esés is, a 2800 dollár körüli csúcsról másfél nap alatt 2170 dollár közelébe esett az árfolyam, vagyis értékének több mint ötödét veszítette el a Read More …

Ugyanis létezik egy sor újabb kriptopénz, melyek jellemzően a Bitcoin kisebb-nagyobb hibáit igyekeznek kijavítani, vagy valamiben jobbak, többek nála. Összeszedtük és bemutatjuk az 5 legnagyobb kapitalizációjú kriptopénzt. 5. Dash (Darkcoin, Xcoin) – 512 millió dollár A 2014 januárjában elindult Dash a Bitcoinhoz hasonlóan egy nyílt forráskódú peer-to-peer alapon működő kriptopénz, amely azonnali és privát (anonim) fizetési szolgáltatást kínál. Utóbbi nem csak a Bitcoinnál is alapvető választható anonimitást jelenti (vagyis hogy egy Bitcoin-tárca addig anonim, amíg a tulajdonosa el nem árulja, hogy hozá tartozik), hanem egy olyan módszert, amellyel összekeverik több küldő pénzét (tokenjeit), így a címzettekhez végül Read More …
