Ralph Echemendia

In the last twenty years or so it’s no secret that we have built a world that is radically different from what came before and that we are in the middle of some sort of technical curve to an unknown destination. How we transact is changing quickly and drastically into a digital territory. We now live in clouds, grids and the ever growing internet of everything. What happens when we don’t understand the meaning of this transition into the digital Pangea, much less the meaning of safety and security? Hacking is in the news everyday and there is no end in sight as the risks to individuals and businesses continue to grow. With Billions in ICO’s and crypto currencies to politics, the digital economy is changing. Our lives are being shaped by how we use technology. We have seen a great deal of sacrifice in the name of security, but it seems pertinent that we do not even have a robust definition for what ‘cyber security' actually is. This keynote will discuss and demonstrate the vast misunderstandings of security today and what we can do to better equip ourselves to handle the threats to the present and future of how we function. Be prepared to be informed, scared and maybe even amazed (in a constructive way) on this issue and it’s impact on our global marketplace, consumption and collective evolution.

OKEx to Launch OKChain Based Decetralized Exchange

Great role in the upcoming exchange will be played by OKB coin, which will be trasfered to OKChain as soon as its development finished
22 March 2019   122

OKEx cryptocurrency exchange will launch a decentralized trading platform on its own blockchain.

Currently, the OKChain blockchain is in the final stages of development, and its test network may be launched as early as June 2019. When the OKEx blockchain becomes stable enough, it will transfer OKB to it, which will then perform the function of the native OKChain token and be used to pay commissions, as well as in its own decentralized network applications.

The primary purpose of OKChain is to launch the OKDEx decentralized exchange, where the OKB token will be used to participate in presales. In addition, project teams will use OKB tokens to pay the service fee to the super nodes of the network.

While the total volume of OKB emissions is 1 billion, 300 million tokens are in circulation today, and 700 million remain blocked. Of this number, 300 million OKB will be distributed to users through the loyalty program, and 400 million belong to the OK Blockchain Foundation and the exchange team. However, for a more efficient formation of the OKB ecosystem, the blocking period of these 700 million tokens will be extended from 2020 to 2022, writes OKEx.

In addition, OKB will be the only token to be accepted during the initial exchange offerings (IEO) on the OK Jumpstart platform, announced earlier this month. According to the company, it is currently negotiating with various projects and will soon announce the launch of the first IEO on OK Jumpstart, for which investors will be admitted who have passed personal verification and have OKB tokens in their accounts.
