MIT Explores Cryptographic Heritage Solutions With Bitcoin And Blockchain

Bitcoin and the blockchain could be an attractive ally in this regard, as it would allow for the creation of cryptographic heritage. Cultural heritage is one of the most important cornerstones of our society these days, yet we are doing an awful job at protecting it. MIT seems to be exploring the usage of blockchain technology in this regard, which would effectively be called cryptographic heritage. Cultural heritage as we know it is often recorded in oral history or written form, but that is not always the easiest of tasks these days. Especially during times of....

Interview with HeavyCoin Developer

Heavycoin is an interesting coin having been released a couple months ago. Here, an interview regarding the Heavy1 algorithm with the developer: Scrypt/adaptive-n is a single cryptographic hash function. Using a single cryptographic hash function as the basis for a crypto-currency is fine until that cryptographic hash function becomes weak, for example, due to advances in cryptography. You might think that would never happen, but it does. Cryptography does advance and the state-of-the-art changes. Cryptographic hash functions have limited lifetimes. Over time advances are made in....
