The National University of Columbia is joining the global blockchain consortium for science dubbed Bloxberg, Mauricio Tovar Gutiérrez, co-director of the research group at inTIColombia told detailed.Bloxberg is a blockchain initiative formed by 12 research organizations from 10 countries and led by the Max Planck Society, with the National University of Colombia to be the only institution from Latin America. The parties reportedly aim to establish an infrastructure that “broadens the scientific landscape of regionally and nationally governed blockchain networks to become the first truly globally maintained decentralized network by scientists for science.The consortium also includes such organizations as Carnegie Mellon, UCL, ETH Library at ETH Zürich, Georgia Tech, IT University of Copenhagen, University of Belgrade, University of Johannesburg, University of Kassel, University of Nicosia, and University of Sarajevo.
To help fight crypto scams Blockchain Asset Recovery firm PrudenSolve joins Coinfirm’sAMLT Token Network
One of the first companies focused on the recovery of blockchain assets, PrudenSolve has been helping address a serious issue in the cryptocurrency space as seen recently with the Quadriga controversy among others. The problem though affects countless individuals and companies and stands as one of the key issues related to the lack of widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies. For many a lack of knowledge and skills on the part of the user, as well as irregularities lying on the technological side stand as the reasons for the loss of access to funds. With that said a very large number of reports PrudenSolve receives is related to nefarious activities that are extremely difficult to solve due to their specificity and the circumstances in which they occur.
What seems to be one of the first if not the first company providing asset recovery services exclusively focused on blockchain and cryptocurrency, Prudensolve will start off their collaboration with the AMLT Network by submitting data it has collected on nefarious action related addresses in the past. After initial data submission of past cases, PrudenSolve will have an ongoing program that submits relevant data into the Network via API. For each submission deemed valid by the AMLT and Coinfirm data science team, PrudenSolve will receive AMLT tokens as a reward in return that they will then use for payment for Coinfirm’s tools that PrudenSolve will use to better investigate lost blockchain assets.

At Duality (Duality Blockchain Solutions LLC) we’ve been keeping a very low-profile while developing groundbreaking products using the primary blockchains of Dynamic (DYN) and Sequence (SEQ), which is why you probably haven’t heard of us.
With an ideology of producing working products and solutions prior to any marketing, Duality holds an ethos that is rarely seen within the blockchain space, in comparison to other projects that favor marketing and hype ahead of development.
With our software fast approaching release, a bunch of solutions headed your way and marketing about to go into full effect, we are excited to show you what Duality is all about.
Real Groundbreaking Solutions
BDAP™ (Blockchain Directory Access Protocol)
For most companies, LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) plays a central role in coordinating identity and access management policies, being utilized by 95% of Fortune 500 companies. However, LDAP is extremely expensive to set up and maintain, SSO (single sign-on) is another option, but they have been subject to major security breaches.
With BDAP™, it’s easier to set up and use, reduces infrastructure costs, there are no third parties shadowing you, you own your data, it’s not sold for profit, and there is far less risk of data breaches. With these benefits, it’s only a matter of time until companies start using BDAP™.
The BDAP™ (Blockchain Directory Access Protocol) white paper can be downloaded from here.
Privately share files with friends, family, and colleagues without concerns about third parties shadowing your information. pShare™ protects privacy with a peer-to-peer network linked to your BDAP™ account, and uses end-to-end encryption technology, giving users exclusive authority over who they share content with.
Revolutionary workflow solution used for the ‘digital signing’ of documents, reducing the currently lengthy process to just a few simple steps. Duality aims to ensure pSign™ is cheaper and more secure than any other solution currently available.
This award-winning identification system allows fast and simple enrollment while combining demographic and biometric data to eliminate errors. NoID™ and the blockchain(s) of Duality could prevent data breaches, and even save lives within the healthcare sector, where ~250,000 deaths each year are caused due to medical errors in the US alone.
VGP (Very Good Privacy)™
A standalone end-to-end encryption library, and welcomed update to PGP which was authored way back in 1991. VGP™ offers the same level or better security than PGP, with smaller and faster 256-bit key operations compared to 2048-bit used in PGP, resulting in a much smaller ciphertext, allowing much faster encryption and decryption.
A mechanism to amend primary blockchain consensus rules of Dynamic without network interruption. This enforces self-regulation, allows changes to reward amounts for Dynode operators and miners, and acts as a response to arbitration or attack. Consensus rule changes usually require ALL users to update and a hard-fork to take place, however with Fluid Protocol, changes take effect after just two blocks (128 seconds).
The primary blockchains of Dynamic and Sequence will be the foundation for the Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) & BDAP™ solutions of Duality. Dynamic and Sequence are not ERC20 tokens which are reliant on the Ethereum blockchain (which currently 80% of the market consists of), but instead, independent custom built public blockchains. The work being done by Duality is extensive and visible for all to see on GitHub.

In its latest report released on Dec. 7, the European Union Blockchain Observatory and Forum (EUBOF) made a case for a blockchain-based digital identity system and digital versions of national currencies. The report was prepared by blockchain software technology firm ConsenSys AG on behalf of the EUBOF, and focuses on the analysis of what blockchain properties could be beneficial and advantageous for governments. The EUBOF suggests that governments should develop “user-controlled, ‘self-sovereign’ identity capabilities” to create secure, private, unique and verifiable identities, that can provide sufficient proof of identity without revealing more data than it is necessary for a transaction. The report recognizes that this has proven difficult to achieve with centralized technologies.
According to a recent survey,about one third of big businesses in Germany consider blockchain technology as fruitful as the Internet. With the addition of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of things (IoT), blockchain technology is one of the current three areas of development with “tremendous potential,” the survey reports. Conducted by a German Federal Association focused on Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media (Bitkom), the survey revealed that overall, 15 percent of German companies think blockchain will “change society and the economy as much as the Internet.” Larger companies, with 500 or more employees have probability which is twice as likely to hold that opinion, at 36 percent.
