    Early uses of blockchain will barely be visible, says Hyperledger’s Brian Behlendorf

    The blockchain revolution is coming, but you might not see it. That’s the view of Brian Behlendorf, executive director of the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Project.

    much of the innovation that the introduction of blockchains are primed to happen behind this the scenes unbeknownst to most.

    “For a lot of consumers, you’re not going to realize when the bank or a web form at a government website or when you go to LinkedIn and start seeing green check marks against people’s claims that they attended this university — which are all behind-the-scenes that will likely involve blockchain,” Behlendorf told interviewer John Biggs.

    “This is a revolution in storage and networking and consumers.”

    the area of online identity is particularly ripe for change. Rather than relying on central systems such as Facebook or Twitter to hold information, blockchain solutions can potentially store information more securely and with more utility thanks to self-sovereign ID systems.

    Bitcoinin sähkönkulutus on ongelma, joka ratkeaa

    Bitcoin kulutti viime vuonna noin 32 terawattituntia. Tämä on enemmän kuin yli 150 maan koko vuoden sähkönkulutus. Yhtä siirtoa kohden jaettuna sähkönkulutus vastaa noin 9 amerikkalaistalouden päivässä käyttämäänsä sähköä. Jos siirtojen energiakustannukset lasketaan tällä tavalla, ei ole vaikea nähdä, miksi Bitcoinin käyttämä energiamäärä tuntuu monien mielestä kohtuuttomalta.

    Josh Constine / TechCrunch:
    Audius, a SoundCloud alternative built on the blockchain, has launched its music streaming service with songs hosted on independent operators to avoid takedowns

    The secret sauce is that Audius isn’t just a web and mobile site, it’s an open-source protocol built on the blockchain, not that users need to be versed in cryptocurrency or do anything special to sign up. Audius doesn’t actually host the music, but decentralizes it across independently operated nodes, which it believes will protect it from lawsuits and record label pressure. It’s distributing its own crypto tokens to incentivize artists that join early, as well as the node operators, with the insinuation that these might rise in value if the service grows popular.
