MAPX Report: News, Updates & Free Votes - DARPA - 20 September 2019

2개월 전

A change in post layout across the MAP FinTech programs to now include general crypto news.


Our weekly power-down was processed yesterday but, as we have no special use allocated for it, it has been powered back up again! We have also withdrawn some more funds from Steem Engine and powered up those too.

Indeed, I notice a small landmark here - our own fund SP is now higher than the number of staked tokens. No, it isn't because the staked tokens have dropped off; they have actually been quite stable this past month, just below the 8,000 mark. So we shall carry on our ascent towards the full 10,000 SP.

The MAPX token price is drifting a little lower at 1.08-1.09 STEEM, but given the current climate, I'm happy that those who wish to buy in can do so at modest prices. Now that our liquidity concerns have passed, we find ourselves with more of our own tokens than before. This means that anybody who does wish to buy a large amount will see it available on the market.

United States’ National Defense Authorization Act proposes the use of DLT for defense purposes

According to Section 255 of the NDAA bill, the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering will provide the Congressional Defense Committees a briefing on the potential use of distributed ledger technology for defense purposes in less than 180 days from the date of publication.

Which will be about what DARPA is doing: US Defense Dept. to Experiment With Blockchain-Based Security

DARPA never did get round to publishing their blockchain workshop findings.

A small plug for our big brother, MAXUV!

There's some useful applications for a DLT in a scenario where nodes are untrusted, potentially cancerous and coming and going all the time. I once was DBA for a database that ran on Interbase - which orginated as a RDBMS designed to reboot quickly after the M1 Abrams main gun fired and crashed all the computers.


Unintended consequences! Kinda funny, so long as one wasn't there, but yes, those kinds of situations where even the infrastructure is untrustworthy. Somewhat like the internet itself is designed to withstand failed routers, such DLTs allow for sudden node failures. So it's not just the flow of info that is maintained but the stored info too. (I assume)
