They can be sent to anybody else in the world who knows how to operate a ‘Bitcoin wallet’. It is this principle of ‘censorship resistance’ that captures Bitcoin’s essential breakthrough — and which explains early concerns by lawmakers and regulators. Banks are losing control... n1
  10. 10. n1 10 Bitcoin & Ethereum. BITCOIN (BTC & BCH) THE TWO LEADING DIGITAL CURRENCIES Source: http://bit.ly/2tyld7F ETHEREUM (ETH, NOT ETC) ★ The Bitcoin Blockchain is an example of a public blockchain and is so called because it is the blockchain on which the digital currency Bitcoin rides. Gartner calls it “the only proven blockchain.” ★ Part of what makes Bitcoin valuable is that there is a nite supply. Supply is limited by virtue of the way it is “mined” and by the fact that Satoshi Nakamoto capped the number of Bitcoin at 21 million to counteract inflationary pressure. ★ Ethereum is another public blockchain with its own digital currency, Ether. ★ Ethereum is a powerful development platform on which innovators can build a diverse array of applications due to its core innovation, the Ethereum Virtual Machine. ★ Ethereum pioneered the concept of “smart contracts,” programmable conditions that run automatically, without censorship, fraud or third-party

The people who are taking back their rights and imposing what is obviously good – the true value of market prices, free from any manipulation, guaranteed by code, governed by us all.’ (Andrew Quentson)
  22. 22. n1n1 22 Smart Contracts Platform. Source: http://bit.ly/2wFNPwJ An option contact between parties is written as code into the blockchain. The parties involved are anonymous, but the contact is the public ledger. A triggering event like an expiration date and strike price is hit and the contract executes itself according to the coded terms. The data comes from oracles. Regulators can use the blockchain to understand the activity in the market while maintaining the privacy of individual actors’ positions.
  23. 23. n1n1 23 Smart Contracts Platform. Source: https://www.draglet.com/blockchain-applications/smart-contracts/use-cases The current problem with insurance policies is that the claims process can take weeks or even months to be paid. The process is still very manual and requires a large degree of human action. This adds up to a lot of administrative costs, which result in higher premiums for customers. Insurance companies can automate insurance policies by writing them into a smart contract. When the input conditions of the smart contract change in an insured event, for example in the event of a catastrophic natural disaster, then the claims process is triggered immediately. Smart contracts in insurance policies
  24. 24. n1 Use Cases. 24 DIGITAL IDENTITY - CRYPTO-VALLEY (ZUG) Zug, Switzerland, aka Crypto-valley, is now often compared to Silicon Valley, as it is home to many crypto-related companies and gets its name from the type of businesses it attracts to the area: crypto. Furthermore, according to the announcement, Zug is now becoming the first community in the world to offer all citizens the opportunity to get a digital identity based on the Ethereum blockchain. Residents can register their identity by themselves using a special app that secures personal information using blockchain technology and associates it with a crypto address. Subsequently, the identity is verified by the identity control of the city of Zug. Zug will gather more experience with blockchain in the third quarter in a bid to hold a non-binding e-referendum in spring of 2018. The software has come to be seen as a potential technology to revolutionize the Swiss voting system, which today still relies on ballot papers and hand counted results.

  25. 25. n1 Use Cases. 25 DIGITAL PASSPORT FOR DIAMONDS (EVERLEDGER) The diamond industry is beginning to implement a system called Everledger, based on block chain technology, which establishes a digital ‘passport’ for each diamond. This records its provenance, travel, and transactions with a unique cryptographic ‘fingerprint’. This system has three stages: ★ Establish an e-ID (electronic identity) for each diamond, by digitising its attributes and a laser-inscribed serial number onto an authoritative block chain ledger ★ Assign a digital passport to the diamond to record its travel, transaction history and provenance ★ Detect and guard against illegal activities or fraudulent behaviour Source: http://bit.ly/2vvJaRV
  26. 26. n1 Use Cases. 26 DECENTRALISED INSURANCE APPLICATIONS (ETHERISC) Etherisc's mission is to build decentralized insurance applications, making the purchase and sale of insurance more efficient, enable lower operational costs, provide greater transparency into the industry of insurance compared to traditional operations, and democratize access to reinsurance investments. They present a token model which enables investors to buy and trade the “long-tail” risks of a decentralized insurance portfolio and to gain exposure to its revenue as an income stream. Together with a consumer-facing insurance application, this shows how a decentralized insurance system could work on the blockchain.

  27. 27. n1 Use Cases. 27 Peer-to-Peer Electricity (Brooklyn Microgrid / LO3 Energy) A community microgrid in Boerum Hill, Gowanus and Park Slope in support of Governor Cuomo’s goal of creating local energy networks with the ability to separate from the larger electric grid during extreme weather events or other emergencies. The community microgrid will create a local energy network with a focus on: ★ Working with community leaders, utilities and technology partners to identify the best fit for distributed energy resources and critical infrastructure upgrades ★ Developing locally generated energy that provide resiliency for emergency needs of local communities ★ Reducing customer costs and promoting clean, renewable electricity, energy efficiency and energy storage options within my community ★ Managing these distributed energy resources for times of power outages and emergencies to protect my community and local economy ★ Identify and create new financial incentives and business models to drive community involvement and jobs, boosting the local economy Source: https://suncontract.org/res/whitepaper.pdf
