  • Blockchain’s biggest challenge: Securing the world’s most secure technology

    Blockchain was created to be a trustless self-regulating system to facilitate the transparent exchange of information between parties while protecting the privacy of all involved. However, the groundbreaking technology isn’t without vulnerability, one that hackers are already busy exploiting. “Blockchain, it’s an immutable distributed ledger,” is something we’ve all heard from bitcoin enthusiasts time and time again, but what does that really mean? How safe is it? How can we secure tech’s most secure technology?

    How blockchain can create self-sovereign identities

    It’s time to take our identity into our own hands. As social creatures, we are the sum total of our interactions with others. Blockchain brings new opportunities to the field of identity management. It does so via the qualities of immutability and distributed access (anyone, anywhere in the world, can verify that information exists). Together, these enable a new paradigm of trustlessness: I don’t need to trust you, a stranger, because I trust the immutability of the blockchain. Blockchain-based peer-to-peer marketplaces are the future.

    How to solve big growth problems in fintech development, part two

    we continue to explore how technologies can help fintechs solve scalability challenges.

    How Bitcoin Ends

    Watching the bitcoin phenomenon is a bit like watching the three-decade decline of the internet from a playspace for the counterculture to one for venture capitalists. We thought the net would break the monopoly of top-down, corporate media. But as business interests took over it has become primarily a delivery system for streaming television to consumers, and consumer data to advertisers. Likewise, Bitcoin was intended to break the monopoly of the banking system over central currency and credit. But, in the end, it will turn into just another platform for the big banks to do the same old extraction they always have. Here’s how.

    After the Bust: Building Out Blockchain Technology

    When there’s a bust, we expect a backlash that leaves people uncertain of the future potential for Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and ICOs. Meanwhile, the underlying buildout of the blockchain infrastructure that’s being created to support all this will ultimately enable a more trusted world. How long it takes to create that trust depends on more than technology. It depends on us understanding these cycles and how to handle the inevitable human emotions of fear and greed that inflate and burst the bubble. Hopefully, this article has prepared you to think for yourself beyond those emotions.

    Cyber Risk – Can the Battle be Won?

    Cyber Risk is recognized as a major threat by both insurers and their clients. Is there any proven way to manage this risk efficiently? Cyber insurance clients will have to beef up their cyber risk strategy, if they have one, and make sure that they are constantly up to date with the latest software, firmware, and hardware fixes, if possible. They must also train up employees to understand cyber risk. There is potential for insurtechs and development houses who can consult small and medium businesses on this; not everyone can afford to hire a CISO.Insurers will need to develop expertise in cyber insurance and start gathering their own cyber risk data. Insurers must also ensure that their own house is in order, as they are a good target for data breaches.
