In recent months, a lot of the buzz in the crypto industry has not been on cryptocurrencies as a store or transfer vehicle of value, but on the possibilities of decentralization for creating whole new business models. It is still very early in the development of this domain, and as of yet, only a few decentralized apps (DApps) like cryptokitties on Ethereum have seen much success and adoption. In many ways, there are still large barriers to adoption for developers looking to integrate decentralization in their offering, but thanks to the lively developer ecosystem in crypto that is changing.

One such development that could hold promise for the future of DApps is the #MetaHash project. It is a development progressing in its creation of an integrated ecosystem that allows developers to create and scale DApps with many different benefits compared to other platforms.

Decentralization for the future

As explained in the #MetaHash white paper: “Blockchain systems brought to life the incredible principle of decentralization of trust. The reason why this technology emerged is that people do not believe other people but are ready to believe thousands of machines belonging to thousands of different people. We tried to reinvent only the technological principle of this technology, to make it faster and more user-friendly. One might think that the world does not need thousands of transactions per second but that would be a big mistake.” This is how the platform seeks to further the DApp ecosystem, through superior speed and scaling abilities. The #MetaHash testnet demonstrated that their blockchain can handle all transaction in under 3 seconds and can handle billions of transactions per day.

The main importance of the benefit of this speed is also linked to the other components of the system. The rewards for forging (similar to mining but less resource intensive) on the network are allocated as 40% for the person running the node, 50% for the wider network, but interestingly 10% for those that use the MetaGate browser, which is an integral part of the #MetaHash value proposition. Users can better interact with the DApp ecosystem when online by using the browser, which is what the #MetaHash DApps will be designed to use. Thus a mutually beneficial ecosystem of node operators, users, and DApp creators can flourish.

Incentivising use

Unlike existing tech paradigms where the owners derive most value, there are financial benefits for all participants in the network. The #MetaHash team have worked to make this value proposition as attractive as possible, and this also applies to the upcoming token sale. Round A of the sale has begun on June 29th at 12.00 UTC, with the initial batch of coins being sold for $0.0391 (can be purchased in BTC or ETH at the exchange rate at the time of purchase), which is likely to be half the price of later rounds.

How Cryptocurrencies Will Change Online Gambling in the Future

Anyone who has followed online gambling since the beginning can tell you that things don’t stay the same for long. One of the reasons for this is that technology improves at such a ridiculously fast pace, and innovators in this industry are able to match up with those technological changes pretty quickly.

An innovation in technology that the Internet gambling industry has really learned from is cryptocurrency, with bitcoin in particular leading the way. We’ve seen it emerge as an alternative banking method, but it’s going to change the industry as a whole in ways that people can’t quite understand yet.

A Post-Legality Era

Something that has eluded online gambling since its inception is the idea of a global governing body. As it stands right now, each individual country (and smaller units of jurisdiction) have their own governing bodies that oversee in the industry. A lot of these laws are tied to banking laws, and that’s where the legality of playing in bitcoin casinos becomes such an interesting topic.

In the present, we’re seeing country-based regulatory bodies from places like Malta, Gibraltar and the United Kingdom start to work together and recognize each other’s licenses more and more. That’s taking serious steps towards having a global governing entity, and once that happens, the role of bitcoin is going to be even larger than it is now because it’ll…

Paying for a VPN service with Bitcoins or any other cryptocurrency secures personal data from curious eyes leaving no traces.

What is a VPN?

Virtual Private Network (VPN) is generally presented by the group of linked to each other computers via the Internet. VPN boosts protection and provides a high level of anonymity to all types of Internet connections.

Security

While the connection to the ordinary Wi-Fi networks, a user usually gets access to the Internet directly, thus he becomes vulnerable to the hackers and the malware attempting to steal his personal data. On the other hand, applying VPN one transmits and gets data in encrypted form which makes it protected.

Anonymity

Generally, isn’t hard to trace an Ip-address of any user and to identify his location with sufficient accuracy. With the help of VPN, the attacker will only get the address of the removed computer. Undoubtedly, the safeguard…
