Let’s talk with you today: First, data trading function of BiFi Pro is based on an extended application of its original distributed storage solution. Only when the platform has the storage function of digital files, so it is possible to conduct transactions based on stored files. Distributed storage system is a distributed system that shares the storage resources of distributed nodes, manages the data of the data storage side in a distributed way through file integrity certification and erasure codes verification technology, and the nodes in the whole network do not maintain the same storage information to reduce redundancy. In other words, in this part of distributed storage system, almost all companies have reached a consensus that distributed storage is the best way to realize mass data storage at this stage. Regardless of whether the blockchain exists or not, the distributed storage system is relatively perfect and has been widely used in real…Jul 12, 2019
Virtual reality is still big news these days. Xbox and Sony have chosen opposite approaches to the tech. This means that VR could end up defining the next generation. Virtual reality has been big news for the past few years. Aside from a disastrous stint in the 90s, it has always seemed like the realm of science fiction. These days, virtual reality is actually pretty attainable. You can purchase a starter set for the PlayStation 4 for under $200 on sale, not including PlayStation Move. For the upcoming generation of consoles, Sony and Microsoft have chosen two different paths. Microsoft has made it clear that they will not be focusing on VR, while Sony has doubled down on the VR headsets. Whichever proves to be the correct path will probably define the ‘winner’ of the generation. Next-Gen May Be Defined by Virtual Reality So far PSVR has been at least partially successful. Some 4.2 million headsets have sold, but that’s not even 5% of the 100 million PS4 units sold. To a certain degree, this rate of adoption is to…Dec 3, 2019

Bitcoin QR generators do make it easy for users to share their wallet addresses. Certainly, QR generators are the best thing that has happened to cryptocurrency after barcodes. But the problem lies with the websites that let you change your data from strings, hypertext, to SHA-256 encrypted crypto key strands of code that your lens can decode almost in a jiffy. Your data should be yours There are scammers out there to get you and ZenGO, a cryptocurrency wallet provider published a report last month, warning the potential risks of using QR encoding services from untrusted websites that mask your data underneath for their use. The ratio of scamming websites has risen at an alarming rate and out of five (5) searches only one (1) of them respects your privacy while the remaining four (4) would be doing what they want with your data as they please. As the name suggests, the Quick Response (QR) code is fast and stores your data in a format not readable by us humans but handing over wallet keys for a speedy transaction isn’t…Sep 14, 2019

Stablecoins could “complement” other payment systems and improve conditions for consumers, but need constant checks, says the United States Federal Reserve. In its November 2019 Financial Stability Report released on Nov. 15, the Fed highlights stablecoins and their potential impact on the U.S. and beyond. Fed: Unregulated stablecoins “pose risks” Rather than dismissing the phenomenon, officials eye potential use cases for the future but insist any stablecoin must adhere to regulatory demands. “Innovations that foster faster, cheaper, and more inclusive payments could complement existing payment systems and improve consumer welfare if appropriately designed and regulated,” the report explains. At the same time, the Fed warns: “However, the possibility for a stablecoin payment network to quickly achieve global scale introduces important challenges and risks related to financial stability, monetary policy, safeguards against money laundering and terrorist financing, and consumer and investor protection.” It added rare official praise of Facebook’s embattled Libra concept, describing it as an example of stablecoins, which “have the potential to rapidly achieve widespread adoption.” “A global stablecoin network, if poorly designed and unregulated, could pose risks to…Nov 18, 2019
