Live Stars adult entertainment project goes Beta

Beta release for the blockchain-based adult entertainment project Live Stars is rolling out on May 23 with what initially scheduled for May 15
21 May 2018   1020

The world's first blockchain-based webcam platform in the online adult entertainment industry is going to release its first public Beta on May 23. The transfer of the Beta to a new server was started last week in order to conduct more detailed tests. And as a result, Beta test streams was scheduled for May 15.

However during the transfer of the Beta application to the production servers, it turned out that the server configuration sockets were getting blocked for clients. Along with that, the legal side of the release is still ongoing: the lawyers are working on a part of USC 2557 documentation (model contract) that is necessary to start the streams.

A different business model that excludes intermediaries, automate all processes based on the implementation of the smart contracts in business logic and financial segment promises to disrupt the industry and make the platform safer, more effective and convenient for users, models and affiliates.

At the moment of publication, the market parameters for Live Stars are as follows:

Average price 0.067867 USD
Market cap 2,695,774 USD
Volume (24H) 96,054 USD

Potentional Vulnerabilities Found in ETH 2.0

Least Authority have found potentional security issues in the network P2P interaction and block proposal system
26 March 2020   202

Technology security firm Least Authority, at the request of the Ethereum Foundation, conducted an audit of the Ethereum 2.0 specifications and identified several potential vulnerabilities at once.

Least Authority said that developers need to solve problems with vulnerabilities in the network layer of peer-to-peer (P2P) interaction, as well as in the block proposal system. At the same time, the auditor noted that the specifications are "very well thought out and competent."

However, at the moment there is no large ecosystem based on PoS and using sharding in the world, so it is impossible to accurately assess the prospects for system stability.
Also, information security experts emphasized that the specifications did not pay enough attention to the description of the P2P network level and the system of records about Ethereum nodes. Vulnerability risks are also observed in the block proposal system and the messaging system between nodes.

Experts said that in the blockchains running on PoS, the choice of a new block is simple and no one can predict who will get the new block. In PoS systems, it is the block proposal system that decides whose block will fall into the blockchain, and this leads to the risk of data leakage. To solve the problem, auditors suggested using the mechanism of "Single Secret Leader Election" (SSLE).

As for the peer-to-peer exchange system, there is a danger of spam. There is no centralized node in the system that would evaluate the actions of other nodes, so a “malicious" node can spam the entire network with various messages without any special punishment. The solution to this problem may be to use special protocols for exchanging messages between nodes.
