  • Ledger gets $7M to take Internet of Things blockchain security to the enterprise, par Kyt Dotson, 30 March 2017

    Thursday 30 March 2017 :: SiliconANGLE » bitcoin :: RSS
    Cryptocurrency and blockchain security company Ledger SAS today announced a Series A funding round of $7 million led by MAIF Avenir.
    This brings the total funding for Ledger to $8.5 million, following a $1.5 million funding round in 2015, making this one of the biggest blockchain-related startup investments in Europe to date.
    Ledger provides products to help companies secure and build out platforms using blockchains, a peer-to-peer distributed secure ledger technology. The company produces hardware wallets for consumers that allow users to store blockchain-enabled cryptographic currencies on their persons securely, server appliances for enterprise and embedded solutions for the Internet of Things.
    The company’s best-selling products are the Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue hardware wallets used for keeping digital currency safe and providing a cryptographic source for digital identity. According to the company, more than 50,000 units have been sold across 30 countries.
    With this funding, Ledger expects to expand operations into enterprise offerings that will allow large businesses to develop their own blockchain and cryptocurrency solutions securely.
    In 2017, the company intends to launch an enterprise grade security solution for cryptocurrency that includes emerging industry standards that allow for working with multiple currencies, multi-signature capacity and time locked payments for financial technology firms such as marketplaces, hedge funds and banks. The company also intends to build out powerful distributed solutions for the Internet of Things.
    “Ledger has seen a tremendous growth in the last months, and we are on track to increase tenfold our revenues this year,” said Eric Larchevêque, chief executive of Ledger. “Our primary objective is to reinforce our position as a global market leader on hardware wallet products, while we accelerate the development of enterprise cryptocurrency solutions through the signature of soon to be announced strategic partnership agreements.”
    With this new funding, Ledger is recruiting 20 new collaborators with the intent to build out and develop the company’s sales, marketing, engineering and support teams.

    The oracles are coming


    The company is also working on developing specialized embedded blockchain security solutions for the “things” in the Internet of Things. Ledger’s vision is to develop a decentralized communication infrastructure channel that can be licensed for connecting a multitude of devices across large areas securely.
    Larchevêque said the company is doing research and development on hardware “oracle” technology for industrial customers for smart grid, supply chain and insurance blockchain uses. Hardware and software oracles are programmable gatekeepers that act to secure information coming into a network from the outside world. An oracle can be software that acts a particular way when something anomalous happens or a piece of hardware that filters input according to expected parameters or shuts down when tampering is detected.
    A hardware oracle also acts to sign cryptographically any information produced by the sensor it acts as gatekeeper for. By using private keys known only to the oracle, the hardware can encrypt its own outputs to the network so it cannot be spied on easily and sign its data so that attempts to counterfeit or tamper with the outgoing data are detectable.
    By connecting the oracle to a blockchain, Ledger hopes to provide yet another layer of security for the incoming data. Blockchains themselves are designed to securely store published data and distribute it across the platform providing multiple copies that all contain the same cryptographically signed information. This makes it harder to tamper with or counterfeit already published records.
    Blockchains used to secure real-world objects or processes must interact directly with the world and, as a result, require a way to trust sensors.
    For example, when securing a supply chain with the blockchain, sensors may be embedded along a product’s lifecycle that report on information such as product components placed into a box, the transit of that box and the environmental conditions of that box. At all of these stages, something could happen to the product, components, the box or the environment the box is in. Anything from misadventure to theft to product tampering could lead to bad outcomes. Having a sensor that can be trusted and a secure communication network would save a lot of money in the long term.
    The company said that it anticipates that hardware and software oracle technology will see a massive deployment evntually as industrial applications IoT continue to grow.
    Other investors joining Avenir in this round were Xange, Wicklow Capital, GDTRE, Libertus Capital, Digital Currency Group, The Whittemore Collection, Kima Ventures, BHB Network and Nicolas Pinto.

  • The Rise of the Alts, par noreply@blogger.com (dinbits), 30 March 2017

    Thursday 30 March 2017 :: dinbits XBT News :: RSS

    Just one year ago the altcoin scene looked something dismal. Other than a dim-lit Dash, a tired Monero, and an eager but overpriced Ether, the scene was barren and bleak with the hope of any altcoin making any significant long term run at stable value being reserved for pump-and-dumps, pre-mines, and reporting errors.

    The only exception to this of course is Litecoin which has predominately held value over $1 for the majority of its lifespan,

    Yesterday Vs Today

    Ether sparked allot of interest and the price rose well into the $20's only to stumble back down before getting torched with the mega-hack and further demolished by its premature hard-fork. Monero and Dash both sparked early interest synonymous of pre-mining and/or pump-and-dump scheming.

    Here's what how digital currency performance has gone over the years with the big five altcoins and bitcoin.


    All of the big five altcoins combined were only worth approximately $8 total. 

    Fast forward to today and Bitcoin by far outperformed all digital currency increasing nearly $1000 in value while Litecoin showed the most stability valued at a high of $4.43 for 2017 compared to 2016's high of $4.29. 

    Monero has over doubled in Ether has quadrupled going from near $15 to nearly $50 and Dash has outright exploded from $14 to over $100.

    Last week many flocked to some of the alternatives amidst hard fork concerns only to realize that a hard fork of any effecting magnitude is a long way off and there's nothing to worry about currently. Bitcoin is is back up over $1000 after having dipped under 900 for a brief moment in time.

    Subsequently the the top altcoins have drooped a bit.

    Why Altcoins are Good for Bitcoin

    You frequently here supporters of Ethereum bashing bitcoin, they are the loudest it seems, you here other altcoin supporters say derogatory things as well, and of course you hear a steady stream of negativity from the private distributed ledger community (Hyperledger, IBM, R3, etc...). However, most bitcoin holders hold altcoins as well so it's not as directed the other way.

    Except for towards private ledgers, because those are dangerous in how they are being presented and not even close to as secure as bitcoin. It's an attempt to completely disassociate the blockchain from those internal networks. 

    Altcoins are good for bitcoin and its supporters are well aware of this. They are predominately exchanged for bitcoin and whereas they can be spend in some markets and exchanged through services like Shapeshift, for the most part their on-ramp/off-ramp to financial services are through bitcoin, even Ether which has some support in this area.


    Why Bitcoin is Good for Altchains

    Secondly, at least in today's world, nothing comes close to the immutable blockchain underpinning bitcoin, so sidchains, altchains, altcoins, and other tokens and assets can settle or record an absolute on the blockchain. Imagine Ethereum recording on the blockchain as a sidechain and there you have it. The blockchain brings functionality to sidechains they would otherwise not have

    Thus, not only are altcoins good for bitcoin, bitcoin is good for altcoins and altchains. Even private ledgers and sidechains.


    Why Altcoins are Good for You

    Bitcoin market cap is currently around 17 billion, that's more than every single altcoin combined. If anything every goes wrong with bitcoin there's not a very reliable place to move value easily used or off-ramped in case of emergency so a few stable and valuable digital assets in addition to bitcoin would be beneficial to everyone.

    That said, nothing remotely comes close to the security of the blockchain so there is still risk on other networks, however it's nice to know some are now available. Not to mention these valuations certainly are profitable to invest in.

    As far was what to invest in, look to assets that provide privacy or functionality (either on their own or as a sidechain to bitcoin's blockchain) and you'll likely invest in a good asset.

    There's also always BitcoinPlus, no telling why that asset has exploded as of late, but it's up 1000%+
