The agenda of the conference will refer to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other blockchain-based tokens, which are starting to address real use cases, such as:

  • Banking the unbanked or under-banked
  • Putting personal, medical and financial data under the control of the individual
  • Providing decentralized, peer-to-peer, fast, world-wide, un-hackable, non-inflationary engineered currencies
  • Allowing individuals to buy, sell, lease, and hold title to property and land on public blockchains that are un-hackable and un-alterable, even by nation states
  • Digitizing assets and allowing creators to get paid for their work in a more direct way that allows them to control and profit from their work

The headline speakers include such major figures in the industry as Tim Draper, John McAfee, James Altucher, Ronnie Moas, Erik Voorhees, Saransh Sharma, Joe Ciccolo, Charlie Shrem, and more.

The Sparkpool mining pool decided to freeze the remuneration in the amount of 2,103,1485 for the extraction of block # 7,238,290. The management of the organization suggests that such a high commission could have been paid by someone in error and is considering the possibility of a refund, CoinDesk reports.

The head of the Sparkpool Xin Xu argues that users of the pool understand and agree with the decision, given the size of the amount involved.

Unfortunately, and fortunately, blockchain is so far not completely run by machines; human are still involved. So we have an opportunity to correct the problem. Integrity is our pool’s priority.
 

Xin Xu

CEO, Sparkpool

While some users suggested that a large commission was paid by mistake, others admitted that this could be a goodwill gesture from an anonymous donor to the community of the miner or even an attempt to launder money through the blockchain cryptocurrency.
