Bancor Protocol development team has announced it's hosting Toronto-based Aion at AYEKA venue in Tel-Aviv on April 8. The topics of the coming discussion cover cross-chain networks development and building inter-chain bridges. The premise to the topic of cross-chain interaction is that in the future blockchains will topologically become aligned with 'spoke-hub' distribution paradigm (a form of transport topology where traffic routes are organized as a series of 'spokes' connecting outlying points to a central 'hub'). Such topology is intrinsic to the Internet, and blockchain will eventually exchange data and value based on that concept.

Nowadays, developers are already creating app and smart contracts that transact across multiple chains. The meetup will introduce the experience and knowledge of Bancor and Aion teams in the terms of tools and techniques for designing tomorrow's inter-chain bridges. Drinks and foods will be served throughout the whole meetup. The agenda of the event is as follows:

1.  19:00 - Mingling

2.  20:00 - Lightning Talks:

  • Galia Benartzi, Bancor Co-Founder
  • Kesem Frank, Aion Co-Founder

3.  20:40 - Live Coding Demos

4.  21:00 - Radically honest Q&A with Bancor & Aion teams

Aion has built a multi-tier blockchain network and designed a protocol for connecting blockchains. Bancor is prominent for its Smart Tokens cryptocurrencies with built-in convertibility directly through their smart contracts. Bancor Protocol enables formulaic price calculation and continuous liquidity for all integrated tokens thus matching two parties in an exchange is redundant.

Bitcoin Cash Hardfork Implemented

Hardfork of a hardfork... just don't get confused in this crazy world of cryptocurrency
16 November 2018   118

Today, on November 15, a hardfork was implemented in the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network. The first block in the Bitcoin ABC blockchain has mined a pool of Bitcoin.com.

The last “common block” was # 556,766, mined by SVPool. on which the protocol update was activated.

Bitcoin SV got its first block. Now we can definitely talk about the division of Bitcoin Cash into two competing blockchains. Roger Ver, right before the hardfork, said that his pool had sent a significant amount of power to mining Bitcoin ABC.

Bitfinex exchange announced the transfer of BAB and BSV coins to the accounts of BCH holders.

Poloniex converted all BCH balances into assets BCHABC and BCHSV. At the same time, the BCH market became unavailable. Instead, the BCHABC / BTC, BCHSV / BTC, BCHABC / USDC and BCHSV / USDC trading pairs appeared. I / O of BCHABC and BCHSV is not yet available, but will open when the network stabilizes.
