Bluzelle is a crypto asset that combines the sharing economy with the token economy, renting individuals' computer storage space to earn tokens while dApp developers use tokens to have their dApp's data stored and managed. 

Bluzelle has announced that it is holding a hackathon in Vancouver, Canada on April 28, 2018. The attendees of the hackathon will be given a database interface and the opportunity to perform CRUD operations, and they'll have to think of creative applications for a decentralized database that can be whipped together before the time is up.

Date and time:
Location: SFU Venture Labs, #1100, 555 W Hastings St, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Moreover, there will be a workshop with Isabel Scroggin, a decentralization researcher and developer as a presenter. Isabel will spark the discussion with a high level overview of Bluzelle Decentralized Database technology, then do a deeper dive into specific technical aspects, during which audience members will be encouraged to ask questions and participate in open discussion.

Participant must be at least 18 years of age and present at the hackathon with their team for the duration of the hackathon, and they can work as an individual (team of one) or in groups of two to six Participants (each group of 1-6 Participants is a “Team”). The tickets are already available.

Ethereum VM May Have Vulnerability

The vulnerability is reported by NettaLab Twitter account
12 November 2018   65

On November 9, a statement appeared in Netta Lab’s Twitter account that the organization discovered a vulnerability in the Ethereum virtual machine that allows to execute smart contracts endlessly without paying for gas online. The researchers also allegedly turned to the operator of the American database of vulnerabilities, where they registered the corresponding discovery.

Netta Labs discovered an Ethereum EVM vulnerability, which could be exploited by hackers. The vulnerability can cause smart contracts can be executed indefinitely without gas being paied.
 

Netta Lab's Twitter

At Netta Lab's request, Google demonstrates the site of the netto.io project, which specializes in auditing smart contracts under the Netta Lab brand, but the Twitter accounts of the projects do not match. Note that the profile that reported the vulnerability was registered in November.

Many users expressed doubts about the authenticity of the information that appeared, but then the creator of the NEO project Da Hongwei said that he spoke with the CEO of Netta Labs and asked the researchers to audit the NEO virtual machine.

Nevertheless, Vitalik Buterin wrote on Reddit that this is a vulnerability in the Python-implementation of the virtual machine, which was first reported on GitHub 9 days ago. This means that the main clients (go-ethereum; parity and cpp-ethereum) are not affected.
