How the Great Ethereum Schism Can End Well for Ethereum Classic (Part 2 of 3)

After a slumber of some days following the Ethereum hard fork that refunded investors of the hacked DAO, the unforked and re-named Ethereum blockchain and its native token classic ether (ETC) surged. Exchanges enabled trade in the digital currency, investors bought in, miners pointed their hardware to it, and a new development community began to form. But Ethereum Classic also has led to chaos and uncertainty. The forked half of the chain — sometimes dubbed “Ethereum One,” and supported by the Ethereum Foundation — is still....

Taking the Block Chain Out of Bitcoin in 2015

Taking the block chain out of Bitcoin and applying it to concepts beyond currency will be a key part of 2015. Their trustless, decentralized nature and future smart contracts provide more than just currency. Today, block chains are the data structure core to decentralized cryptocurrencies. Block chains are bubbles of market-driven nascent economies and platforms of permissionless innovation. Block chains, the concept, are even more important than the bitcoins they safeguard. I'm a big believer that the Internet of Things will grow one very compelling use case - Paul Brody, IBM. For a....

Rise of Replay Attacks Intensifies Ethereum Divide

The unintended consequences of the ethereum hard fork continued to mount this week as new problems became apparent due to the ongoing popularity of two competing networks. A week ago, there was one ethereum, a decentralized computing platform that’s drawn outside attention for applying the cryptocurrency concept to develop new Internet applications. But due to a schism in how people think the platform should work, there are now two ethereum networks (ethereum and ethereum classic), both of which use an almost identical history. The thinking was one blockchain 'winner' would quickly emerge....

Polygon debuts SDK for building Ethereum-compatible chains

Polygon developers are set to launch tools to enable the creation of Ethereum-compatible standalone chains and layer-two protocols. Polygon has announced the launch of its SDK stack that will allow developers to easily deploy their own Ethereum-connected blockchains. SDKs, or software development kits, are single installation packages containing tools necessary for seamless app creation.According to an announcement on Wednesday, the Polygon SDK contains several plug-and-play modules with custom-made solutions for parameters like consensus and synchronization. Apart from consensus and....
