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.

If government is the devil, the bank is a demon.

It’s not your money anymore.

The moment you put your money on your bank account it becomes the property of the bank. Legally speaking you have just lend your money for minuscule interest. And since the money is not your, terms do apply, so you cannot withdraw all of them in one day, if the amount is high.

Government will know everything

Today banks are obligated to tell the authorities everything they know about you, including how much money you have, how you got it and where you spend it. The golden age of bank secrecy is over. Of course if you are a law abiding citizen, you might think that you have nothing to hide, but it’s not about hiding stuff. It’s about basic human right, and rightness for private life. The government should not be allowed to watch you.

Banks ask too many stupid questions

It’s your money, you rightfully earned them, but still you need to explain to the bank where you got it from and be shamed by them. The funny part is that after long and painful due diligence process the bank may still decline in providing service for you.

They can legally suspend your account or even steal your money

Laws are not made to protect people, they are made to protect the…

The way to make sure that the cryptocurrency momentum continues and that cryptocurrency credibility occurs is when big companies begin offering services based around cryptocurrency and other features of blockchain. This was certainly the case when Neteller recently announced it will offer a cryptocurrency exchange service in addition to its digital wallet services. The company announced that the 28 currencies compatible with the fiat wallet were able to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrencies – including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, and Litecoin. It makes sense to begin with Bitcoin and Ethereum as they are seen as the originators of what cryptocurrency and blockchain can do and also the future of how blockchain can be used, despite news that Ripple may be set to topple them all. Neteller’s move into cryptocurrency shows it has its sights set on a bright future of cryptocurrency and making it more accessible. But where do they stand now?

Neteller and Cryptocurrency

Neteller are optimistic about the exchange features of the digital wallet, claiming that they plan to add more cryptocurrencies in the near future. Neteller’s benefit is the ease at which one can begin their cryptocurrency trading journey. Not only do a range of banks offer services to fund the wallets and exchanges, but so do a variety of online payment options. This helps remove the barrier to entry that exists in…

My new year’s resolution is to put the past year behind me and start fresh.  This means to stop worrying about past losses and focus on all the exciting projects that blockchain technology has made possible.  When analyzing new projects, I tend to look for projects that have 2 advantages; growing industry and lack of competition.  Companies with these advantages have always done well in the equity markets and there is no reason to believe they won’t do well in the crypto markets.  MobileGo (MGO) is one such project that will be one of the biggest winners during the next 12 months.

MobileGo’s currency, MGO, performed better than nearly every other token during the past 12 months.  While most altcoins were plunging by more than 90%, MGO is only down about 50%.  And, since September, the MGO token has exploded by more than 200%.  These trading gains can be attributed to increasing adoption rates of the MGO token, most notably on the Xsolla platform.

Xsolla is a global powerhouse within the gaming industry.  It’s a gaming platform that provides developers with critically important services such as marketing, billing, distribution, payment processing, and fraud prevention.  Xsolla’s pay station allows for every developer in the world to monetize by providing 700+ payment types.  The company also has a global presence that is unmatched by reaching 200+ geographies, utilizing…
