SAN FRANCISCO, June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Last week, the CCID Blockchain Research Institute under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in China released the initial list blockchain projects included in its Global Public Chain Technology Evaluation. Nebulas is selected as one of the projects on the list.
The Global Public Chain Technology Evaluation aims to provide an objective review of the technological development of the top global public blockchains, and increase transparency into blockchain trends and innovations. The evaluation index will be released regularly every month. This will also provide consulting services for governments, enterprises, scientific research institutes, and technologists.
At the moment, 30 projects have been chosen by the MIIT for evaluation, including Nebulas, up from 28 projects during the last evaluation round. Selected blockchain projects were handpicked by MIIT and did not apply to be included on their list of projects to be evaluated. It appears these 30 projects are prioritized because of the limited energy of the assessed staff. Currently, other public blockchain projects cannot apply for inclusion in the evaluation.
However, it is expected that applications will be opened in August for other blockchain projects to be evaluated by the MIIT, after the current batch of assessments concludes. Public chain projects cannot apply to be included in the MIIT evaluation, and the evaluation criteria will be selected by the Public Chain Technology Evaluation team. It is expected that the application channel will be provided by August to accept applications from the public chain teams.
Why has the MIIT blockchain institute selected Nebulas?
According to the technology evaluation FAQ, the selection of global public chain technology evaluation targets has strict criteria. Only public chains that meet all the criteria can be included. The technical evaluation of the public chain considers the basic technical, applicability and creativity of a public chain. These criteria correspond specifically to the MIIT evaluation model: B (basic-tech ), A (applicability) and C (creativity):
Basic-tech. In the evaluation of basic-tech, it mainly examines the applicability, basic performance, safety and centrality of public chains. Within, performance is investigated from the aspects of block efficiency, network throughput (both theoretical and practical), transaction fees, etc. In the security level, the existing evaluation model focuses on architecture security, consensus security, digital signature and account security.
Applicability. In the application-level evaluation, the Season 1 evaluation model mainly focuses on the user scenarios supported by the public chain, the number and applicability of wallets, and the development support of the public chain.
Creativity. In the evaluation of creativity, it mainly examines the scale of public chain technology innovation team, code update and code influence, etc.
The MIIT blockchain institute believes that the model of combining public chains and dApps will be very important. Based on the current assessment model, the public chain that provides smart contract functions will have a higher score. This is in line with the current development path of Nebulas.
Particularly, the Global Public Chain Technical Evaluation has its eye on blockchain projects that are open to the whole society. The evaluation points involve the tech-development, user scenarios and continuous innovation ability of the blockchain.
In the same way, Nebulas is a next-generation public blockchain, aiming for a continuously improving ecosystem. It has an original blockchain value discovery system, future-oriented incentive, and consensus mechanism, as well as the self-evolution ability to avoid hard fork. Nebulas mainnet was launched in March this year and has operated for nearly three months. Currently, there are about 3,000 dApps on the mainnet, which surpasses Ethereum in number, and high-quality applications are continuously emerging on Nebulas mainnet.
This Global Public Chain Evaluation program is organized by the blockchain institute of MIIT jointly with the CCID think tank of the Chinese Academy of Telecommunication Industry Development and China Software Testing Center. The consulting team is composed of blockchain experts and professors from China’s top universities — such as Tsinghua University, Peking University, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and Beijing University of Technology —and are very influential in the blockchain industry.
MIIT was established in March 2008 as the state agency of the People’s Republic of China. It is responsible for regulating and developing the country’s postal service, Internet, wireless, broadcasting, communications, production of electronic and information goods, software industry and the promotion of the nation’s knowledge economy. The agency is also responsible for industry planning, industry policies, and various standards formulation related to China’s domestic information industry.

Ludos Protocol Makes a Strong Case for Investors in Blockchain Gaming
As games migrate to the blockchain and become increasingly complex, Ludos Protocol is set to capture this new market. It’s creating a solid ecosystem of DApps and toolboxes that provide Blockchain as a Service for developers to build and maintain sidechains.
Ludos Protocol solves one of the biggest issues that has given investors qualms about blockchain gaming: scalability. An overcrowded mainchain is a perennial problem that has hindered the progress of even the best-funded blockchain gaming applications. Thanks to a hybrid of Proof-of-Work and Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithms, Ludos Protocol is able to implement a multi-sidechain system. This allows any populated game to deploy its own sidechain of transactions while keeping the mainchain throughput at a minimum.
This is why Ludos Protocol has attracted investment from fund behemoth Softbank, whose previous ventures include Uber and Alibaba. Ludos Protocol is the fund’s third-ever foray into blockchain.
Industry trends attest to Softbank’s interest in Ludos Protocol. Gaming produced a global revenue of over $200 billion in 2017, according to the latest report by Digi-Capital. It is a figure that is expected to grow to $300 billion by 2021, making the industry one of the most lucrative in the digital economy. It is also one of the ripest for change by blockchain technology. The development of a comprehensive blockchain infrastructure that suits the evolving needs of the…
Why Investors Should Closely Follow the Earnings Season
The earnings season has arrived, and investors around the world are excited to see what reports are companies going to publish. This is important as these reports contain companies’ earnings for the current year, which can provide investors with some valuable insight.
No matter what announcements the company has made throughout the year, it is the earnings report that indicates the firm’s true performance. As such, it often has a significant impact on its public image, the price of its stocks, as well as investors’ interest.
Earnings reports can open up new opportunities
When it comes to the cryptocurrency markets, 2018 has brought both, volatility and stability. Most of the time, prices were relatively stable, but this state was only reached after a harsh drop in January 2018. Since then, several smaller price surges, followed by just as large price drops, hit the market once again.
As a result, crypto traders were prompted to look for alternative investments. Earnings seasons often present numerous opportunities for resourceful investors. Analysts claim that earning reports managed to significantly impact prices of shares (by over 5%) since 2001.
It is expected that a lot of companies will try to take advantage of the earnings season in order to make a comeback, especially after the hit that markets suffered back in October. Various firms will also likely show insight into how the market behavior affected their profits and business, in general.
Ever since the cryptocurrency sphere was met with the news of the partnership between Litecoin Foundation, TokenPay, and Verge (XVG), the idea of them coming together has been among the most controversial news to ever surface in the cryptocurrency world.
The collaboration managed to even draw the attention of one of the most renowned crypto-influencer and bitcoin campaigner, Tone Vays. In his usual style, Tone took to Twitter handle on hearing the news, tweeting and expressing his disapproval while criticizing the creators of the three cryptocurrencies for allowing such a move to occur.
In retaliation to the attacks from Tone, Charlie Lee, the MD, and founder of Litecoin (LTC) posted his clarification on Reddit on the 17th July in regards to the partnership. Litecoin’s CEO started by explaining the dissimilarities between Litecoin as a currency and Litecoin as a company.
In his remarks, he said that Litecoin as a blockchain and crypto network is a decentralized network, whereas Litecoin Foundation as a company is a centralized non-profit institution whose goal is to ensure Litecoin (LTC) is developed, adopted, and used. Charlie also mentioned that Litecoin’s cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies did not require his direct services at the moment hence his concentration on Litecoin Foundation.
Charlie Lee made his remarks known saying:
“If Litecoin Foundation (LF) is exposed to not doing a good job, nothing should prevent another organisation to step in and do a better job. This is…
