Posted by in categories: bitcoin, blockchains, business, cryptocurrencies, Elon Musk, government, internet, robotics/AI, space

Despite its recent blowback, Web 3.0 offers a more interconnected and productive society.

The next significant development for the internet and all it governs is Web 3.0. To improve user experience, it will make use of artificial intelligence. In addition, blockchain technology will enable the service to be backed by decentralized networks since Web 3.0 is the fundamental framework for cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. This will be a revolutionary move that might significantly influence businesses and how they function, as well as individual users. For instance, site owners won’t have to rely on larger businesses like Amazon (AWS) and Google to buy server space.

Web 2.0 – the current version of the internet – has grown overly centralized, with a small number of large technology businesses and government organizations controlling the industry. Web 3.0, which promises a decentralized online ecosystem built on the still-emerging blockchain, will be the third iteration of the internet. Web 3.0 was first coined in 2014 by a computer scientist named Gavin Wood also helped create Ethereum, the decentralized blockchain system that powers the ether coin.

How can artificial intelligence fuel the logistics industry?

Posted by in categories: blockchains, information science, robotics/AI, security, transportation

Artificial Intelligence is the buzzword of the year with many big giants in almost every industry trying to explore this cutting-edge technology. Right from self-checkout cash registers to AI-based applications to analyse large data in real-time to advanced security check-ins at the airport, AI is just about everywhere.

Currently, the logistics industry is bloated with a number of challenges related to cost, efficiency, security, bureaucracy, and reliability. So, according to the experts, new age technologies like AI, machine learning, the blockchain, and big data are the only fix for the logistics sector which can improve the supply chain ecosystem right from purchase to internal exchanges like storage, auditing, and delivery.

AI is an underlying technology which can enhance the supplier selection, boost supplier relationship management, and more. When combined with big data analytics AI also helps in analysing the supplier related data such as on-time delivery performance, credit scoring, audits, evaluations etc. This helps in making valuable decisions based on actionable real-time insights.

North Korean hackers are posing as VC firms to steal crypto — and a blockchain expert says 2023 could bring more cyberattacks than ever

Posted by in categories: blockchains, cryptocurrencies, cybercrime/malcode, finance

North Korea’s infamous Lazarus Group is mimicking venture capital firms and banks to steal cryptocurrency, according to a report from cybersecurity company Kaspersky.

The state-sponsored cybercrime group, which was was behind the $625 million Axie Infinity hack in April, is creating domains that present themselves as well-known Japanese, US and Vietnamese companies.

Kaspersky said Lazarus’ BlueNoroff subgroup is using new types of malware delivery methods that bypass security warnings about downloading content. They can then “intercept large cryptocurrency transfers, changing the recipient’s address, and pushing the transfer amount to the limit, essentially draining the account in a single transaction.”

Why blockchain will remain a big deal in 2023 and beyond

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, blockchains, cryptocurrencies, security

While it is still unclear how cryptocurrencies will alter in value and where we will be in 2023 — one thing is clear, they are undoubtedly here to stay.

As 2022 draws to a close, the cryptocurrency market is under great scrutiny. From the crypto winter of 2021 that saw Bitcoin lose almost a third of its value and other cryptocurrencies follow suit to security issues with crypto exchanges, bridges, and web 3.0 apps, and of course, FTX’s dramatic failure, it’s almost impossible to disbelieve tales of gloom. However, looking at the forecasts for 2023, it appears the market may rebound, and now may even be an ideal moment to invest.

The post-Merge Ethereum ecosystem needs privacy more than ever

Posted by in categories: blockchains, cryptocurrencies, security

Check out all the on-demand sessions from the Intelligent Security Summit here.

On September 15, 2022, the Ethereum network migrated from a proof-of-work to a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism called the Merge. Apart from reducing energy consumption by 99%, the Merge laid the foundations for building a highly secure and scalable blockchain. However, despite the benefits of the Merge, it also marks a regression in privacy, which is a significant concern for Ethereum users.

Privacy generally takes a backseat to other core blockchain topics such as decentralization and scalability. In fact, blockchain networks’ zeal for data transparency often comes at the cost of compromising individual and enterprise privacy. But without a privacy-focused approach — even one that gives users optional privacy — Ethereum decentralized applications (dapps) will repeat the same mistakes of Web2 applications.
