FACTS: a new model for the legal ICO

ICO-LINK-BLOG-FACTS

Several blockchain companies recently advertised "legitimate" or "compliant" American regulators ICO. However, getting deeper into details, it quickly becomes clear that these ICO-teams do not understand the SEC's requirements and that their location of the tokens does not comply with the standards. This is not surprising. Most entrepreneurs (quite rightly) are more focused on building a business than on understanding regulation, and it's not just about businessmen in the blockchain industry. Nevertheless, companies that raise funds through the ICO are very at risk, and today entrepreneurs need to understand the regulatory requirements in order to avoid problems.

How the distributed technologies and the blockchain systems change the game industry

ICO-LINK-BLOG-Gabe-Newell

The industry of video games is experiencing rapid growth, and the popularity of online broadcasts of major e-sports tournaments attracts an audience comparable in size to the audience of traditional sports events. Moreover, this phenomenon already claims for official recognition from far from virtual sports associations and committees: for example, the International Olympic Committee allows the holding of the first ever Olympic video game tournament in 2024. About 58 million people around the world call themselves professional gamers. The total profit of platforms that allow organizing cyber-tournaments is approaching $ 1 billion, and, according to some estimates, in just a few years it will gain another billion. This popularity of video games has led to the emergence of several related industries, one of which is the sale and purchase of virtual items, such as skins and weapons. If skins serve mainly to amuse the player's pride, then weapons often play a decisive role in virtual battles. Nevertheless, skins, which have no practical value even in the virtual world, are sold for quite real money. Some of them, considered rare, go to new owners for 15 thousand dollars.

Botnets - a threat to the future of the Internet of things

ICO-LINK-BLOG-INTERNET-THINGS

If you follow the news from the technology world, you've obviously heard many times about the Internet of things (Internet of Things or IoT). With the proliferation of smart home devices - from lighting devices to thermostats and cameras, and the use of other smart solutions in enterprises, the spread of IoT and the problems associated with it, it's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore. When you think about DDoS-attacks, then computers and servers infected with malicious programs and viruses that are controlled by a secret and anonymous server come to mind. However, the largest botnets and associated DDoS attacks that appear recently do not always spread through infected computers, servers or smartphones. Hackers found that it is much easier to compromise a vulnerable IoT device than to try to force a user to click on a malicious link or download an infected file.

The complexity of Bitcoin mining jumped by 21.4% for the first time in two years

ICO-LINK-BLOG-BITCOIN-MINING

Users of the social network Reddit discuss the recent jump in complexity in the Bitcoin network. The last major change raised the complexity by 250 billion units, or by 21.4% from a value of 1,196,792,694,099 to 1,452,839,779 146. The last time such a major leap took place in 2015. In order for the reader to better understand the scale of this change, we recall that it took almost 7 years for the complexity to rise from 1 to 250 billion. The reason for such a drastic change could only be the introduction of new large-scale mining equipment in the last two or three weeks, and the consequence was a natural growth of the network hash from 8.56 to 10.4 E / s (ex-session per second).
