ICTU and Xurux developed a Proof of Concept to verify legal documents within public registers via the open source ‘IOTA-Blockchain’. This is reported by official IOTA Reddit. 

The software, developed by these two companies,  guarantees the authenticity of legal documents through the open source ‘Blockchain’. Now a a citizen can demonstrate to the housing corporation that he or she is an inhabitant of the city of Haarlem by means of Blockchain. Now citizens no need to visit the town hall to receive an official extract.

By figure of speech, the application could be deployed tomorrow. It enhances the technology and its adaptation in the public domain, improving society as a whole.

The solution is is an open source, free for use by governmental and municipal organizations working with public register extracts. Developers are going to bring the application in production in 2018.

Crypto Investor to File Lawsuit Against AT&T

Michael Terpin believes that AT&T helped scammers to still his $24M worth crypto
16 August 2018   125

In the Los Angeles District Court, a 69-page lawsuit was filed by BitAngels founder Michael Terpin against the American telecom giant AT&T. Terpin claims that the operator assisted fraudsters in "stealing digital personal data" from the account on his smartphone, which is why he lost $ 24 million in cryptocurrency, according to an official release.

According to Terpin, for seven months, there were two hacks. Initially, an attacker got access to his phone number without providing a password or correct identification data. Later, the phone number was used to steal crypto.

AT&T’s studied indifference to protecting its customers’ privacy and financial assets is a metastasizing cancer, threatening hundreds of millions of unsuspecting AT&T’s customers. Our client had no idea when he initially signed up, nor when later he was promised the highest level of security for his account, that low-level retail employees with access to AT&T records, or people posing as them, can be bribed by criminals to override every system that AT&T advertises as unassailable.

Michael Terpin requires AT & T to pay him $ 224 million - $ 200 million for moral damages and $ 24 million for actual theft.
