The major executives from security, gaming, streaming, medical and blockchain companies will join TiesDB CEO Alexander Neymark at a round table event “Introduction To TiesDB — Why The World Needs A Blockchain Database” on February 16 in New York city.

The conference will focus on data as a minable commodity, difference between decentralized hosting and cloud computing, and rationalty of expectations towards decentralized databases disrupting the growth of enterprise-to-cloud migration.

Moreover, the conference will cover such crucial questions as:

  • How can absolute information security be guaranteed for every client? 
  • What’s the most optimal way to integrate decentralized databases into existing services, businesses and financial systems?

26 April 2018   50

Electroneum announced its fork is scheduled to take place at block 307500 on May 30. The fork is special as it will not result in two currencies: this is achieved by allowing all the exchanges and pools to update their software in advance. The update covers the following aspects

  • anti-ASIC code:

the implementation of such code will ensure security against any network attack

  • increase of transfer fee:

to ensure Electroneum blockchain withstands blockchain flooding, base fee will be increased to 0.1 ETN

  • block size increase before penalty:

the increase will allow miners to scale the blocks faster and get more transactions into a block

  • disabling of RingCT and Mixin:

disabling some privacy features with letting wallets remain private will get a less wait to fit a transaction into a block and a leaner blockchain size

  • 3 days mempool life:

it will ensure a reduction of the possibility of the returned transactions

Readers will be able to find the rest of the remaining details of the update here. As for the market indicators for Electroneum, here is what they look like at the moment of publication:

  • Average price   $0.024453
  • Market cap         $166,770,279
