  • 11. then came the pivot ● Built our own internal framework and API in order for our wallet to reach its full potential ● Despite the 16K uniques, was there enough consumer interest? ● Who stood the chance of making the most difference? Developers...
  • 12. The Blockchain Application Development Stack LAUNCHED AT TECHCRUNCH DISRUPT
  • 13. talking about pivots - what is legal tender? ● Money in Malaysia started with tin cubes ● These later became coin trees ● Then came bronze coins from China - eventually we had “ real “ money... ● 1898 to 1939 - The Straits Dollar ● 1939 to 1953 - The Malayan Dollar ● 1953 to 1967 - The Malaya and British Borneo Dollar ● 1967 to ???? - The Malaysian Ringgit from BNM (Guaranteed to Fail)
  • 14. just ask Kenya or Argentina about legal tender
  • 15. NO MATTER WHAT ITS FORM FIAT MONEY IS CENTRALIZED fiat money is currency that derives its value from government decree http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_money ( from here we should discuss legal tender - but that could get messy )
  • 16. using technology to move beyond centralization ● Nothing is more polarizing than the topic of Bitcoin, which can quickly and often become a conversation about politics and / or our governing beliefs ● We are not here to talk about whether governments should be able to print their own money and use it to bail-out the banks and other entrenched establishments for trillions of dollars that we pay back through inflation ● We are here to talk about how software is eating the world ● Nearly every industry on the planet has moved beyond centralization and is being disrupted by new networks. Uber is the world’s largest taxi company & AirBnB have more rooms than any of the leading hotel chains
  • 17. Network Evolution i) centralized fiat money & credit cards iii) distributed bitcoin & blockchains ii) decentralized gold & uber
  • 18. ● Friedrich Hayek wrote the economic calculation problem in 1935 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_calculation_problem He was later awarded a nobel prize for his work on monetary theories ● Hashing was coined by someone at IBM in 1953 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_function ● Public key cryptography theorized in 1874 but implemented during 1970s http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public-key_cryptography (requires a computer) ● Napster Popularized P2P (peer-to-peer) technology in 1999 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer (combining all of this led to bitcoin) new technology built from reliable ingredients
  • 19. ● Others call it digital gold due to the scarcity of mining its precious numbers ● Bitcoin is the world’s 1st fully distributed open-source currency & trustless payment platform that is always available and controlled by no one person ● Every person that chooses to participate in the network has a copy of every transaction that ever took place - this is located on the blockchain ● A copy of the blockchain sits on every computer running a master node, which currently averages at around 6,000 servers at any one time ● It is about 40GB in size when raw, 70GB if indexed and 180GB normalized some people refer to bitcoin as Napster for money
  • 20. ● No Bitcoin or balances, anywhere - there is only a record of transactions ● Providing the private key belonging to a public address allows that person to transfer the ownership of any of its unspent inputs to another address ● A transaction can contain multiple inputs and outputs, where change must be programmed to be return to a specified address (minus fees) ● We now have programmable money! ● Multisignature addresses and time-locks allow for interesting use-cases only when normalized can you query it sanely
  • 21. BEFORE TRANSACTION AFTER TRANSACTION looking at the blockchain as a land-registry Alice Bob Charlie David
  • 22. ● Blocks are mined on an average of every 10 minutes (for Bitcoin) ● The difficulty adjusts as hashing power flows through the network ● When a precious number is discovered, recent transactions get added into a block and the miner is rewarded a coinbase and any additional fees ● That block then gets added to the end of the blockchain ● If two miners discover a block at the same time, a fork in the chain can occur, which is why it is recommended to wait for transaction confirmations transactions are collected into blocks for mining
  • 23. back when I last presented mining looked like this
  • 24. but quickly became a billion dollar business!
  • 25. ● Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn) Invested US$20M in Blockstream Personally ● Sir Richard Branson backed BitPay (Exchange) in a US$30 Million Round ● Circle (Exchange) raised US$50 Million - led by Goldman Sachs ● NYSE led a US$75 Million Investment in Coinbase (Exchange) ● 21inc recently raised over US$100 Million to put miners inside toasters ● US$1 Billion from VC funding is expected in 2015 ● The importance of most of these references is the names not the numbers there be gold in them hills
  • 26. ● 1st generation was forked to transfer value (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin) ● Blockchain 1.5 technologies build upon existing blockchains by offering additional dependent layers and protocols allowing for unique offerings: ○ NameCoin provides distributed DNS (.bit domains) ○ ColoredCoin and MasterCoin can tag and track digital assets ○ FileCoin and StorJ provides distributed CDN (proof of bandwidth) ● Blockchain 2.0 is currently in a mostly theoretical or pre-alpha state but involves starting from scratch and introducing turing-complete functionality ○ Ethetherum and Codius introduce autonomous applications (recently used by IBM at the core of their new IoT platform - ADEPT) beyond the limitations of the bitcoin blockchain
  • 27. ● We specifically target developers - where we like to think of the blockchains as the world’s first freely available distributed data stores ● We provide APIs, SDKs, frameworks and sample applications to do everything in our power to make it as simple as possible to get started developing distributed applications on up-to eight different blockchains ● The more become blockchains available, the more valuable we become ● Since launching at TechCrunch Disrupt in November 2014, we have been seeing organic growth across our platform averaging 40% MoM ● We have released 3 open protocols and countless sample applications where does blockstrap (our product) fit-in…?
  • 28. everstore - the future of distributed data …?
  • 29. ( wallet with themes & plugins still included )
  • 30. ● Other than supporting 8 chains, 3 protocols and 9 sample applications… ● We have the only open-source blockchain wallet with themes and plugins ● We are focused on regular developers, NOT blockchain developers ● We are the only blockchain infrastructure company in Southeast Asia ● We are especially interested in educating and supporting communities ● We provide FREE full-day workshops & hackathons so what makes us different…?
  • 31. use cases utilizing our stack at DBS hackathon ● 2 X 5 Hour Prior Workshops ● 15 teams had 32 hours ● 7 teams powered by us ● 1 Million API requests ● 100 hack-pack USBs ● 2nd Place Winner using us!
  • 32. #StartingBlock2015 Workshop Tour ● 6 Cities in 8 Days ○ Istanbul ○ Amsterdam ○ Barcelona ○ Prague ○ Berlin ○ London ● Free 8 Hour Workshops ● Hackathons to follow!
  • 33. Presented by Mark Smalley (@m_smalley) we also provide workshops and seminars extending this introduction upto 10 hours contact us for information on anything mentioned within - founders@blockstrap.com THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND OCCASIONAL SMILE
