Block Chain Inside Out Launches to Showcase Internet of Value Advances and Dynamics

Block Chain Inside Out - - the only news service dedicated to the innovative distributed ledger technology that underpins crypto currencies, decentralized applications and the internet of value, launches today following a successful beta rollout. The publication was founded by Pete Harris, a veteran technology journalist and publisher, who has held editorial and business leadership roles at A-Team Group and Waters Information Services.

Updated continuously, Block Chain Inside Out follows the business and IT dynamics related to block chain architectures, covering developments with applications, APIs, platforms and technologies.

Block chain technologies are highly scalable decentralized public ledgers. A form of advanced database, they are emerging as an exciting and innovative direction for implementing massively scalable and secure decentralized applications. Beyond their implementation underpinning bitcoin and crypto currencies, block chain approaches have been mooted to solve business challenges where it is vital to record data in a secure, authenticated and immutable way. As such, they will impact every aspect of eCommerce - from finance to intellectual property, from real estate to health, from citizenship to the Internet-of-Things.

According to business and technology innovation guru Don Tapscott:

“The underlying block chain technology of crypto currencies is a core part of the next generation of the internet that is radically going to transform not just commerce and the nature of the corporation, but many of our institutions in society and everyone needs to pay attention to this.”

The founder, publisher and editor of Block Chain Inside Out is Pete Harris, a veteran technology journalist, publisher and event producer. In 1988, he launched the Dealing with Technology newsletter, which was later acquired by Waters Information Services (now part of Incisive Media). At Waters, Pete oversaw the editorial launch of newsletters covering internet and mobile trading, and spearheaded the publisher's online and events businesses. In the early 2000s, Pete created the "on Wall Street" series of events, focusing on topics including Java, Linux, Web Services and High Performance Computing. In recent years, Pete joined A-Team Group where he introduced and the associated Low-Latency Summit events.

Block Chain Inside Out becomes a sister publication to Crypto Markets & Technology, which focuses on the institutional trading of crypto currencies. Both are owned be Pete's Lighthouse Partners company, which also engages in consulting and publishes research, with a strong focus on block chain technologies.

Pete will be attending this weekend's North America Bitcoin Conference in Miami, FL to cover developments and meet with editorial and business contacts.

Block Chain Inside Out is a media sponsor of the Texas Bitcoin Conference in Austin, TX at the end of March. Lighthouse Partners is a silver sponsor of the same event.

IBM Executive Highlights Block Chain's Utility for Internet of Things

Precisely what the so-called "Internet of Things" will look like five or ten years from now is difficult to say, but it's not out of the question that a block chain may be behind some of the next-generation technologies that companies like IBM are developing in order to build what may also be called the connected economy. Regardless of the phrase or buzzword, the concept envisions a world in which all devices, places and people are interconnected networks, sharing data and information at lightning speeds among one another. Mobile devices, smart appliances, vehicles, even homes - the....

IBM Sees Role for Block Chain in Internet of Things

IBM researchers are looking into the possibility of using block chain technology for the Internet of Things (IoT) - a term for the growing network of devices with basic computer-like capabilities that communicate over the web. The IoT is likely to bring a major change in the way we use technology, with interaction between connected everyday devices (such as pacemakers, fire alarms or air-conditioning units) and humans increasingly becoming the norm. Now IBM is examining the use of block chain technology for an IoT distribution platform, backed by other peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies. The....

Are Off-Block Chain Transactions Bad for Bitcoin?

Bitcoin was designed to be a decentralized and trustless payment network - with the power to do this provided by the block chain and its ability to publicly confirm the digital currency's digital transactions. Rather contentiously, however, as the bitcoin economy expands, more and more transactions are being carried out off the block chain. Such transactions are tracked on private databases instead of the block chain, and cannot be publicly tracked. There are pros and cons to both systems. So, which are better? Off-block chain or on-block chain transactions? Visible payments. Legitimate....
