TopiaCoin proposes a secure network that will offer a data security layer to protect digital assets within decentralized applications (DApps). It seeks to be the first truly secure blockchain network, using military-grade security technology to solve data-sharing challenges on the current system.

The internet is constantly evolving to add greater personal convenience to its users by presenting tailored content based on big data analytics. While this may sound appealing at face value, its implications often come as a surprise to users. This so-called convenience is facilitated by the collection and exploitation of personal data from device users. The data is then stored in central repositories where it is vulnerable to breaches, leading to even further exploitation.

Blockchain technology, on the other hand, has set in motion a crucial revolution thanks to its decentralized framework, eliminating centralized authority exploitation. But applications based on the technology have no real security when it comes to digital assets. Their security capabilities only extend as far as protecting transactional data.

A Decentralized Security System for Blockchain Applications

The internet addresses the problem of secure data sharing by the use of data encryption technology. However, this technology is dependent on centralized authorities that act as gatekeepers on the model. A decentralized network cannot therefore employ a similar system since the whole essence of it is to eliminate the gatekeeper role from its structure.

No technology currently addresses this need. There are decentralized file storage systems like FileCoin and MaidSafe. While these are great solutions, they only go as far as to offer secure storage for digital content, but there is no solution for secure data sharing.

To address this critical gap, TopiaCoin has developed a secure point-to-point network that will protect data and digital files. The networks protocol automatically shreds and encrypts all content, and only makes it accessible for the intended recipient. This innovation will prove to be critical for developers of DApps on blockchain networks as it excludes the need for each to create their own security system. It will combine file-sharing protocols as well as libraries to enable integration of the service onto every conceivable blockchain network.

Practical Applications for the Network

The TopiaCoin network will make it possible for users to share sensitive digital assets and information such as title deeds, wills, financial data and medical records, with the confidence of complete privacy and security. Users will be able to create their own workspaces and invite desired members with whom they can share information securely, thanks to the shredding and encryption capabilities of the network. After sharing, the data will again be shredded and re-encrypted to ensure security regardless of the storage space. Only the authorized recipients will be in a position to access this information.

The network can also be used for a variety of other possible use cases. For instance, companies that deal with sensitive data require a secure messaging system that can build a messaging app on the SDFS network. Professionals like lawyers and accountants can also create DApps on the network for the transfer of confidential documents with clients.

An Impressive Background

The company behind the product, Topia Technology, has years of experience as it has been in business for the past 15 years. Its proposed security system is based on a patented security model known as Secrata, a military grade security platform. Secrata is the only enterprise security platform with a triple layer of protection, armed with features to secure content against both brute force attacks and malicious threats.

This is a fully working product that was developed within US government agencies such as the Army, the Air Force, TSA and FAA. These are all entities that require high security as well as strict performance paradigms and goes to give credence to the viability of the Secrata platform. The TopiaCoin ICO was structured by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and is a security offered through a SAFT.

The TopiaCoin team, headed by CEO Janine Terrano, recently welcomed Stan Larimer to its Board of Advisors. He is the co-founder of Cryptonomex and BitShares, both of which are blockchain-based companies.

Token Sale Details

The TopiaCoin secure network has scheduled a public sale event due to start on May 15th, 2018 and close on June 5th, 2018. The token will have a total supply of 300 million TopiaCoin and will be strictly for accredited investors. From the total supply, 210 million tokens will be offered for the public sale.

More information about the TopiaCoin project and its upcoming ICO is available on the network’s official website.

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…

Nowadays, more frequently people opt to use cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin while dealing with financial transactions for its convenience, so its increasing prevalence isn’t round-of-the-mill phenomenon but still, its users need to create fully protected cooltechzone to secure their data.

Recently, a great abundance of VPNs have started to accept it as a way of payment and it definitely makes sense: one buys VPN to retain anonymity on the Web, so why not to use the privacy-focused payment method? 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…
