IOST 2020 Q1 Node Conferenc...

At 20:00 on March 27, 2020, GMT+8, IOST held the 2020 Q1 Global Partner Nodes Conference. More than 50 representatives from around the world gathered together to share their contributions in the first quarter of 2020 and their development plans for the next quarter.IOST’s Progress in Q1 2020At the beginning of the conference, Blake, head of IOST’s Korean market and the IOST Foundation representative delivered a speech introducing the milestones achieved since IOST’s mainnet launch to the first quarter of 2020.IOST is an international team with more than 400 partner nodes from about 20 countries around the world in its ecosystem, including many media companies, exchanges, mining pools, and top tier dev teams and, of course, the community.After the launch of the mainnet, IOST has been interviewed by CCTV and delivered a speech in the Great Hall of the People. In addition, IOST has successfully launched a power trading project in Fujimi City and cooperation with AWS China. In the next stage, we will keep working hard and implementing IOST in all fields.Recently, IOST released three important announcements. First, IOST launched the aircraft carrier program that will expand its business based on IOST Enterprise Edition — AIOU Technology. IOST Enterprise Edition can be used in various fields, such as government affairs, supply chain, charity, Internet of Things, games, etc. The goal of IOST is to provide better services for each industry based on the experience and data obtained from previous cooperation with governments and enterprises, which will help traditional enterprises to more easily adopt the IOST blockchain.In addition, based on feedback from the community over the past year, the IOST Foundation updated the Node Program and decided to share more rewards with tier 1 to 3 partner nodes. Since a large number of nodes have to divide one’s share within each tier, this led tier 1–3 nodes to receive a relatively small amount of rewards compared to what IOST foundation and the nodes expected at the very beginning. Moreover, tier 4–5 nodes took a comparatively large amount of rewards with lesser efforts. The foundation believes that this situation is undesirable and unfair for the IOST ecosystem partners. Through this change, IOST will distribute rewards more fairly, providing more rewards for nodes who make more contributions to the ecosystem.Finally, IOST’s staking mechanism has also been updated. In a highly volatile crypto market, the one-week freeze period adds uncertainty, so the IOST Foundation shortened the 7-day freeze period to 3 days. While working on establishing a better ecosystem and realize the widespread implementation of blockchain technology, IOST also hopes to provide everyone with a better user experience through this upgrade.Partner Nodes’ Sharings: Q1 2020 Contributions & the Next Quarter PlansNext, 15 partner nodes shared their contributions and thoughts at the conference. The following is a summary of the shared content, we hope it inspires everyone to get higher contribution rewards in the next quarter.1. EverSystemIn Q1 2020, EverSystem mainly focused on building a p2p electricity trading platform on top of IOST and launched the system on 1st March. With the IOST team and partner companies’ support, EverSystem successfully finished the PoC.In the next quarter, EverSystem will be working on creating use cases in Japan using the IOST BaaS platform, which was launched recently by IOST Foundation, and hopefully partner with Japanese companies to deliver solutions to various real-world problems. EverSystem has also started building their own product using blockchain and look forward to introducing them to the market soon.2. Liebi PoolIn Q1 2020, Liebi mainly worked on two aspects: market operations and product development.For market operation,Mining pool stake increment: 89,714,604 IOST, 45% moreThe total stake of the mining pool reached 211 million IOSTMining users increment: 512Total mining transactions 890,000,Transaction amount: 2.41 Million VOST.For product development, the IOST cross-chain transfer bridge public component RUST-IOST development is now completed and Liebi is currently building the relay-service code.In Q2, Liebi will start the development of the light node for the IOST cross-chain transfer bridge. At the same time, the Liebi pool will also optimize the user experience and lower the threshold for Staking participation.3. Square OneSquare One is working in the business of making sports clothes and design, this is why they decided to spread IOST through something physical, an actual product that people can use. Square One set up IOST shop with IOST products and are spreading IOST Pay through all web pages and partners.4. XPETIn Q1, XPET has made three main contributions to the IOST ecosystem:1. The regular operation of the XPET Monster World gameThe update frequency → still once a weekPromotions and new activities → once a month.The daily activity and transactions are stable in the top 3 ranks according to IOST public chain DAPP rankings.2. Improved the IOST main network IRC721 protocol to achieve cross-chain reuse of NFT assetsWith the official assistance of IOST, XPET improved the IFT mainnet NFT protocol IRC721, and based on the pets of the monster world, they released IOST’s first NFT game asset. In addition, an interface to the cross-chain transfer bridge of the EOS mainnet NFT assets was added to the IRC721 protocol, enabling “asset reuse” of the same game asset in the same game on two public chains.3. The development of the NFT game asset trading platform “LOOT”LOOT is a comprehensive crypto asset trading platform. NFT assets connected to the IRC721 protocol can use transfer, cross-chain transfer (currently supports cross-chain between IOST and EOS) and trading functions on LOOT.In Q2, XPET will keep working on the development and improvement of new game features, using the game assets of the monster world as a model to provide developers of the IOST ecosystem with relevant NFT asset development, distribution, and trading services.5. BlockArcadeBlockArcade had a very successful and productive Q1 this year! They successfully launched 2 new dapps — BlockArcade VIP Staking and CryptoRun.Here’s a quick overview of BlockArcade from this quarter:Daily active and monthly active users are much higher than 2019 Q4!BlockArcade hosted 10 rounds of Quantum Raffle draws and live-streamed the event on TwitchBlockArcade sold their first NFT t-shirt to a userIntegrated BlockArcade NFTs with Jetstream wallet.Listed TIX on the otbTRADE DEX, and otbCOIN in BlockArcade’s prize exchange.BlockArcade VIP Staking is a staking pool built on top of the IOST staking program.

This year, IOST Foundation is happy to enter a deeper collaboration with AWS China, the global leading cloud computing platform to implement its cloud development strategy & push forward its compliance process.IOST co-founder Terry was invited to an exclusive interview with AWS China and IOST foundation is glad to be well-endorsed by AWS China & to be:the first blockchain project interviewed by AWS Chinathe first blockchain project advertised on AWS Cloud Computing WeChat account as their first high-quality blockchain cooperationthe first blockchain project displayed on AWS China websiteClick here for the official report link (Chinese)Click here for the official website display link (Chinese)With the consistency of AWS’s infrastructure technology architecture in various regions around the world, IOST’s blockchain application projects can be deployed in multiple places, meeting the requirements of different countries and regions in terms of compliance, data residency, and user access.Through this cooperation, IOST will accelerate the growth of our global ecosystem and the compliance process for the global market, thus reaching out & empower more enterprises worldwide with its leading & innovative blockchain technology.AWS to Boost IOST Cloud Development Strategy & Global Compliance DeploymentAfter comparing AWS to other service providers, IOST chose to deploy based on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and obtained one-stop professional support for consulting, architecture planning, and hosting services provided by an AWS Partner Network (APN) member.As IOST co-founder Terry highlighted: “The core purpose of blockchain applications is to achieve ‘reliability’ and ‘trust’. Our aim is to provide compliant services, but when facing compliance requirements in different countries and regions, we might have to invest a huge amount of resources in legal affairs.”Compliance is extremely important for every blockchain company. IOST has also started its compliance process worldwide:In China, IOST became the first public chain project to be invited to give a speech by national television of China, CCTV, and the Great Hall of the People;In Indonesia, BAPPEBTI invited IOST to serve as the government blockchain technical consultant.In Singapore, IOST strengthens strategic government ties with Enterprise Singapore & Ithe Infocomm Media Development Authority SingaporeIn 2020, IOST will continue to advance its compliance progress of Japan, South Korea, the United States, Singapore, Vietnam, and other countries.AWS has developed an excellent infrastructure worldwide and has been a promoter of cloud computing with a comprehensive compliance program.“Blockchain has been gradually applied to different industries, including public utilities. It is important to deploy on a compliant cloud platform, and AWS can meet the compliance requirements of blockchain companies in China and globally.” IOST co-founder / CTO Terry Wang said, “AWS has a higher number of available areas than other cloud service providers, which means that we can deploy IOST’s blockchain applications in a wider range of regions and effectively push the global compliance process of IOST. With the AWS China (Ningxia) region operated by Xiyun Data and the AWS China (Beijing) Region operated by Halo New Network, we can easily develop our business both in China and globally.”IOST’s Road to Promote Blockchain ApplicationsSince the beginning, IOST has been committed to promoting the blockchain technology applications in real life. We believe that blockchain in general, and IOST, in particular, have a great potential to transform multiple industries and fields in the near future.IOST’s global business has been advancing steadily and has now been applied in many fields. This is demonstrated by our partnerships with various industries leaders including, but not limited to:UAV flight data management system for civil aviation, to prevent tampering and effectiveness of UAV flight data;blockchain oracle in the financial industry to enable the blockchain to interact with real-world data;asset digitization and deposit certificate in artwork transactions, to help customers achieve traceability of artwork and deposit certificate of property rights on IOST blockchain;and the partnership with the Singapore Information and Communication Media Development Authority (IMDA) to gather third-party developers to build an IOST cross-chain technology framework to achieve consistency of cross-chain transaction data between different blockchains, and many moreThe in-depth collaboration with AWS- the global leader in providing cloud services will further accelerate IOST’s global deployment and global compliance progress.In the future, IOST will continue to work with AWS and APN Premier Consulting Partner, to introduce more concepts, architectures, and services to restructure the entire blockchain internal testing platform infrastructure and strive to bring advanced blockchain technology into more industries and empower enterprises to develop innovatively.Check Out One-Click Deployment Platform for EnterprisesLast year, IOST’s Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform has been live on AWS Marketplace.IOST’s high speed, secure BaaS platform allows developers to launch blockchain solutions in as quickly as 5 minutes.

How can I create a mainnet account?From time to time, you can find that there are platform which allows you to create a mainnet account for free, but although you get a free mainnet account, those are not actually free, there is always someone who pays for you, so please show your gratitude to the payer and please do appreciate the gift this person gave you today :).You can buy a mainnet account at https://iostaccount.io for 150 IOST. Alternatively, you can use TokenPocket to buy an activation code through PayPal, Alipay or WeChatpay for $1 or choose “create by a friend” and ask a friend who is already on IOST to pay it for you.Some IOST nodes might also be giving away free TokenPocket activations trough Telegram, please link with them on IOST official International community group.Create IOST AccountNotes:The name you choose when creating an account is also your wallet address.Make sure to backup your private key safely!! When lost you won’t be able to access your funds anymore and nobody can help you retrieve them!!If you don’t feel comfortable creating a mainnet account through a third party site/app, rest assure you can change the private key(s). You could use the Windows CLI wallet (linked at point 2) to generate a new private key offline, as advised in tutorial. Be careful when changing your private key(s), if anything goes wrong, nobody can help you access your funds.See tutorialhttps://medium.com/media/1f135485cb01b4bfed5d227dd14dda18/href2. What desktop/mobile wallets can I use?At the moment your best options to access your mainnet account (although others are available) are.iWallet (open source chrome extension)iWalletJetstream Chrome extensionJetstreamTokenPocket (IOST partner) for mobileTokenPocket - 你的通用数字钱包 | TP钱包 - EOS钱包 - ETH钱包 - BTC钱包 - TRX钱包 - IOST钱包 - BOS钱包 - COSMOS钱包 - Binance钱包 - 墨客钱包 - 井通钱包 - ENU钱包Just paste your private key(s) into them and you are ready to go.For more information please visit:wallet_en - IOSTFor crypto veterans there is also a Windows CLI wallet available.iWallet - The Native IOST Wallet for Windows Users by IOST WatchNotes:I hear a lot of people saying things like: “I’ve got my IOST in iWallet”. To avoid misconceptions, please understand that you don’t hold your tokens in any software wallet. iWallet, TokenPocket or other (future) wallets are just means to access your IOST account. You could even use iWallet to vote, delete iWallet, and use TokenPocket with the same private key to claim rewards or unvote. Again: You don’t store your tokens in a wallet but you access your IOST account with it. This way TokenPocket, iWallet, iostabc and (future) blockchain explorers / wallets are redundant and replaceable.There is a reason the dev team didn’t create an official IOST wallet. It disincentivizes any other wallet developers because they think the official wallet will get all the support, promotion etc so developers wouldn’t be interested in creating these tools for IOST. Also, 3rd party wallets is pretty essential from a decentralization perspective. If IOST core are controlling protocol and wallet, it’s not ideal.3. What about iGAS and iRAM?Read this article.Everything You Need to Know about iGAS and iRAM on IOST: From the Real DApp DataTLDR:iGAS is what you burn when doing (trans)actions. iGAS regenerates daily so (trans)actions are actually free. Although doing a lot of actions can burn up your iGAS. To get a bigger fuel tank you can pledge IOST for iGAS. When you run out of iGAS, maybe pledge 10 IOST to it and see how that goes, you can always pledge more if needed. When ‘done’ you can unpledge the IOST, after a lockdown of 3 days those IOST are returned to your balance and are yours to use again. You won’t make gains or get rewards for pledging IOST on iGAS.iRAM is memory to store information of your personal mainnet account. A mainnet account needs 1KB to be able to exist, this is the amount you start at. You’ll need to buy more iRAM when you need to store more information / smart contracts. For example when you want to vote for more than 3 nodes, you’ll need to buy 1kb extra. When you buy or sell iRAM 2% of the IOST you pay is burned (deflationary model) so you can sell iRAM back to yourself but you’ll get less IOST in return. You won’t make gains or get rewards for juggling iRAM. Just buy as little iRAM as needed.4. Can I “stake” IOST?Yes, read this article.How to vote for IOST nodes in a decentralized fashionTLDR:We call staking ‘voting’. You vote for a node you favor, and lock your IOST on them. By doing so you support that node / the IOST ecosystem and you’ll get rewarded some IOST.By voting from a personal mainnet account you won’t lose possession of your IOST tokens, they are still locked under your private key. You can even unvote when node goes offline.If you unvote, after a lockdown of 7 days those IOST are returned to your balance and yours to use again. Just make sure to keep this in mind when you want to sell at a certain price point.To estimate your ROI you can go toIOST Rewards Caculator | IOST Blockchain Explorer5. How can I vote IOST?Please refer to point 4.6. How do I research a node?I recommend doing research and vote for a node you can actually contact on Telegram or through social media. On https://iostabc.com/producers/ you’ll find a list of nodes and details such as their websites. As part as decentralization the node owner has to input a command https://medium.com/iost/node-partners-rewards-claim-guide-8abd70f0c6e4 (daily) to release your rewards. To see how often a node gives rewards, check nodes wallet address transactions see how often they execute candidateWithdraw command. This is also shown under the DIVIDEND RECORDS tab. Even when the node owner skips a day or two, your rewards will accumulate in the background.7. When are the quarterly rewards expected?Depending on the level of contributions from your chosen node, your quarterly bonus may be up to 300% of the daily rewards you have received for the same period! The expected 2020 quarterly contribution rewards distribution schedule is:8. How can I run a node?There is differentiation between Servi and Partner nodes, you can become for both. Read this articles about minimum specs and application here.Become Servi Node · IOST DocsTo streamline the on-boarding of Servi Nodes, enable the stability and progressive scaling of the IOST network as well as ensuring profitability of Servi Nodes from block production rewards, the required vote amount received from Voters and/or from self-staking has been increased to 10,000,000 Votes.Servi Node Guide: Requirements and On-boardingIf you wish to be rewarded for your contributions to the IOST ecosystem, you can check out these programs here:Featured DApps Support ProgramIOST x Bluehill | Featured DApps Support Program Now Launched!Bug Bounty ProgramIOST Bug Bounty Program: Building a Secure BlockchainDapp Referral ProgramDApp Referral Program: Become a Contributor to the IOST Ecosystem!9. Help! My wallet doesn’t work, nothing happens when I do a (trans)action.This happens when you don’t have enough iGAS or iRAM, check if you got enough (see point 3).If trying to stake/buy iRAM/iGAS with iWallet gives error undefined(status code: undefined}) then use https://www.iostabc.com/wallet/resources to succeed.If you get a -time out- error, make sure your time and region settings are right, maybe reboot or just press F5. When on mobile, set time to auto instead of manual.10. How can I swap my ERC-20 tokens to mainnet tokens?Currently, all swaps from ERC-20 IOST tokens to Mainnet Tokens are done through exchanges. You can deposit your ERC-20 IOST tokens to exchanges that support the IOST Mainnet Token Swap.To keep it short I’ll just talk about swapping trough Binance for now.Binance Will Support The IOST Mainnet Token SwapQuote: Please note that even after the IOST mainnet is online, if you choose to deposit ERC20 IOST tokens into your Binance account, we will continue to process the token swap for you.So just send the ERC-20 IOST to your main ETH account on Binance. Binance will swap them for you, in about 20 minutes they will appear as IOST mainnet tokens on your balance.11. Why does IOST do the token swap only at exchanges? Can we do a manual swap?Token Swap is still an abstract concept for many non-technical users. Manual swapping is not only complicated, but also risky. IOST has not yet officially launched a manual token swap scheme. Please avoid trying it, or any company claiming to provide such a service outside of the above-mentioned exchanges. IOST’s selected exchange partners are world-renowned, high-security global exchanges where users can use safely without any concerns.12. When will the mainnet token swap end?IOST has already started the Mainnet Token Swap, and it will be continued throughout 2020 for users to complete the swap from IOST ERC-20 Token to IOST Mainnet Token. IOST has set an adequate time frame for this token swap to ensure that every user can complete the token swap during this transition period. IOST Foundation will send advance notice to communities on various platforms before it ends the token swap.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: https://t.me/officialiosIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficial/Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-Group………………………………………………………FAQ — Most Frequently Asked Questions in IOST Official International Telegram Group was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST’s One-Stop Blockchain-...

While developing the public chain technology and its ecosystem, IOST had also been explored consortium chains and finally launched the IOST Enterprise Edition Aiou Technology in 2019. Leveraging on our previous rich experience in working with enterprises, IOST now officially opens our Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) to the public & build:a one-stop BaaS platform for the consortium chainhelp developers or enterprises to quickly establish a blockchainand provide professional and targeted blockchain solutions for government and enterprises.IOST BaaS Platform, also known as the Aircraft Carrier Plan is now open its blockchain solutions to the following sectors:Government AffairsJudicial FieldSupply Chain SectorCharityInternet of ThingsArt Trading FieldGaming FieldEducationE-CommerceAdvertising & EntertainmentMedical/ BeautyThis document consists of the following sections:Why IOST Enterprise Services?Targeted Customers & What We Can Do For YouTop Business CasesHow to Get StartedWhy IOST Enterprise Edition?IOST is dedicated to the research and development of blockchain technology and to the continuous introduction of trusted blockchain platforms and products to the market.IOST BaaS is based on six underlying core technologies of blockchains: Multi-cloud support, multi-chain support, permission management, smart contracts, privacy protection, consensus mechanism. — and customized by Hyperledger Fabric, the most widely used consortium chain system in the world.At present, the measured data of IOST BaaS TPS has reached tens of thousands, it can simultaneously update millions of data and support the upload of hundreds of millions of data. In the areas of technical maturity and stability or non-technical tools, tutorials, communities, ecosystems, etc., IOST is far ahead of other platforms and accessible for enterprises to integrate and develop.Based on the rich experience gained after cooperating with governments and enterprises and in order to promote the implementation of blockchain applications, IOST decided to launch its IOST BaaS platform, also known as the “Aircraft Carrier Plan”. We will officially open commercial services to help more traditional enterprises in their transition to or adoption of the blockchain technology.A. Who Is This Service For?With the launch of the “Aircraft Carrier Plan”, IOST will open cooperations to the following types of enterprises, developers, local government departments, and other organizations in need, providing direct technical services, consultants, blockchain training, and promotion services to create an open and win-win blockchain business ecosystem.1. Government AffairsChallenges faced:The current e-government system implemented in some countries face problems such as data isolation, poor security, and lack of supervision. Databases of different government departments are independent of each other, and information integration is difficult. Sharing data also impose security risks. E-government related information involves national security and citizen privacy, if things go wrong or some data is leaked, the consequences can be serious.How IOST helps:IOST enables cross-agency interaction, privacy protection, and efficiency improvement among government departments through encryption, public ledger, and smart contracts. In comparison with traditional platforms, the e-government platform based on IOST BaaS will adopt point-to-point encrypted transmission and rapid approval of “smart contracts”, thereby achieving cost reduction, efficiency, transparency & traceability, and information security encryption, breaking data isolation issue.2. Judicial FieldChallenges faced:With the development of digital technology, electronic evidence (in the form of sound files, pictures, videos, etc.) are more frequently used in lawsuits. According to the 2018 White Paper on the Application of Electronic Evidence in China, over 73% of civil cases across the country involved electronic evidence. However, there are many difficulties in the process of it.Because they are easy to tamper, how to determine its authenticity is the main issue when accepting electronic evidence. Electronic evidence is also easy to lose. They usually require multiple backups, and also to save the original file. Furthermore, the traditional method of depositing evidence is time-consuming, inefficient and involves a high cost, while also not suitable for the preservation.How IOST helps:The unique characteristics of blockchain technology, such as immutability and decentralized storage can fix the pain points of electronic evidence storage. The judicial consortium chain based on IOST BaaS reduces the cost of electronic evidence storage and enhances the authenticity of electronic evidence, thereby improving the efficiency of litigation.3. Supply Chain SectorChallenges faced:The supply chain can be viewed as a network of suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers, and vendors. In the supply chain, capital flows, information flows, and real logistics operate interactively, so coordination is extremely difficult. Traditionally, relying on a single chain owner, the coordination model of core enterprises has been unable to meet the needs of a diversified and rapidly developing market.How IOST helps:Because of its immutable, decentralized, and asymmetric encryption characteristics, the blockchain is suitable for multi-party participation and information exchange scenarios, which helps to realize the democratization of data and the connection of decentralized databases. With IOST BaaS, companies on the chain can achieve peer-to-peer communication and transactions without the need for intermediaries, which can reduce trust costs. The information contained by on-chain nodes is identical and automatically updated, so the information seen by suppliers and customers is the same. Real-time visualization tools can identify unnecessary waste in the supply chain, optimize production links, accelerate logistics and information flow, power lean production, and make accurate forecasts. The condition is to automatically execute actions and update data according to smart contracts, eliminating manual operations and paperwork, reducing costs.In addition, to break data isolation in the supply chain will also be of great significance. IOST BaaS will provide more resources for big data analysis based on the supply chain, improve data quality, reduce the risk of data leaks, and make Big Data become possible. At the same time, by achieving data ownership in the supply chain, it can also help establish a data trading market.4. CharityChallenges faced:Traditional charity organizations are run by centralized institutions, thus the records of all donations are held by those institutions, which has led to a general lack of transparency. Traditional charity organizations have always been operating inefficiently, not open, not transparently, and distributed resources unreasonably and irrationally.How IOST helps:Blockchain is essentially a distributed database with the advantages of being open, transparent, traceable, and difficult to tamper. With immutability and traceability at the heart of charity information disclosure, blockchain technology is the perfect candidate to improve the credibility of public welfare organizations. By recording all donations on this ledger, donors and recipients can be effectively connected and everyone can check the flow of donated materials.In addition, the use of blockchain smart contracts can also solve problems such as complex processes and black box operations in traditional charity projects.5. Internet of ThingsChallenges faced:With the development and evolution of the Internet of Things, the problems related to it are gradually accentuated. In terms of personal privacy, a centralized management structure cannot be fully trusted, and personal privacy data is often leaked.Currently, the IoT data flow is aggregated into a single central control system. With the continuous evolution of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology that enables long-range wireless connectivity for low power consumption, IoT equipment will grow exponentially, and the cost of centralized services will become increasingly difficult to bear. According to IBM’s forecast, there will be more than 25 billion connected devices in 2020. The global IoT platform lacks a unified language, which can easily cause communication between multiple IoT devices to be blocked.How IOST helps:IOST BaaS IoT chain will directly overturn the centralized architecture of the IoT, which will not only greatly reduce the pressure on the computing side, but also unleashes more possibilities for new organizational structures of the IoT, providing more room for innovation. Secondly, the accuracy and immutability of the consortium chain records also make the privacy and security evidence-based, and it is easier to defend and deal with in terms of security. In some architectures, distributed blockchain IoT nodes will also not be affected by traditional DDOS.From the perspective of integrity, blockchain and the Internet of Things are also mutually reinforcing relationships. Blockchain + IoT can effectively expand the source of access to data, reflect credit information in the field of circulation in a more credible way, and further provide valuable services.6. Energy FieldChallenges faced:The current power transmission loss rate in the energy field is high, and corporate financing is also difficult. The industry has a large scale and a large number of funds, and the transactions are very complicated, resulting in high transaction costs and settlement costs between various links. And the lack of an effective credit mechanism has led to a low data-sharing rate in the energy industry.How IOST helps:Blockchain technology will change the production and trading model of the energy system. Energy trading entities can implement energy production, trading, infrastructure sharing, and digital and precise management of energy, which in the future will be able to extend to energy interconnection scenarios such as distributed trading microgrids, energy finance, carbon certificate trading, green certificate issuance, and electric vehicles.In P2P power transactions, especially for distributed energy, transactions between users and generators can be achieved through an energy consortium chain developed on IOST BaaS. For the determination of loss, the conversion loss between different energy sources, the long-distance transmission of energy, and other losses caused by other operations can be notarized more transparently through the blockchain. In the cross-energy market, transactions between multiple energy systems and their price information can be recorded, and the marginal prices of different types of energy in each region can be generated in real-time based on this.7. Art Trading FieldChallenges faced:At present, basic art transactions are characterized by privatization, fragmentation, speculation, and poor resource circulation. Among the art trading methods, traditional trading methods, including galleries, expositions, and other places often experience private transactions, which brings potential risks and high transaction costs to art transactions.The art market is flooded with counterfeits, which also seriously undermines the integrity of transactions. And this phenomenon is mainly due to the existence of many opaque phenomena in the authorization mechanism, which makes the authenticity of the artwork and the source difficult to distinguish.How IOST helps:IOST BaaS Consortium Chain can build a highly trusted decentralized artwork data database, including photos, collectors, affiliated artists, transaction information, and review information of artworks, etc. can be uploaded to the blockchain network. During the transaction process, art enthusiasts can extract artwork data from a decentralized network, view the artwork information, and make a reasonable valuation of the artwork.Any relevant information on the artwork circulates transparently on the chain, and its source can be easily traced back, which will greatly reduce counterfeits in the industry. Through the blockchain technology, a decentralized art trading platform has been created, real-time transaction settlement and tamper-proof and verifiable sources have been created. This has improved the transparency of art transactions and has also simplified and automated the financial service process.8. Gaming FieldChallenges faced:In the traditional & centralized games, the game producers have the authority to control the game rules & sometimes, at the expense of players’ interests. If the game’s numerical system is out of balance, the game producers may start to adjust the values, but any adjustment will damage the interests of some players.In addition, game assets cannot be exchanged in traditional games, and players only have the right to use the game, without ownership.How IOST helps:The core technologies of blockchain such as distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and consensus mechanisms have strong application prospects in games. For example, when rules of the game are written into a smart contract, it prevents developers from making random changes to the game and enables the rights and free circulation of game assets.Earlier, IOST has officially signed a contract with King Kong Games, the first game listing company on the NEEQ. The IOST BaaS chain has changed the existing game development, distribution, communication and profit model for games, breaking the barriers of trust between players and game developers, putting the core assets on the chain, and realize digital asset rights and digital asset circulation in games.In the future, players and game manufacturers will jointly build a harmonious game ecosystem. Assets in different games can be easily transferred to other games. Players can realize the free trading of virtual digital assets. Real data and trust costs will be greatly reduced. Players can directly benefit by making contributions to the game ecosystem. The breaking of the multi-game economy dimension wall will allow the game economy ecology to gain new possibilities.9. Educational FieldChallenges faced:Some main problems faced by the traditional education organizations include the widespread falsification of academic qualifications, the difficulty in assessing the teaching quality of institutions, and the lack of interaction among participants.How IOST helps:Academic data, student evolution files, and other data related to academic history can be stored and recorded on the blockchain. Blockchain + education can make use of the anonymity and privacy of the blockchain to open up the current data isolation and allow students, schools, training institutions, etc. to share learning data, thereby optimizing the data supply end and achieving personalized teaching according to the student’s aptitudes. Earlier, IOST reached cooperation with BlockDevs Asia to store the learning certificate in the IOST consortium chain, which has ensured the authenticity of the user’s learning process, making the verification of learning credentials more effective, safe and simple.10. E-commerce FieldChallenges faced:In the traditional e-commerce field, in the past 10 years, the e-commerce industry has continuously optimized and upgraded sales links, channels, and suppliers, which has brought great convenience to people’s lives. On the other hand, the increasing centralization is unavoidable, the benefits are captured by the giants, and the value generated by the platform is sometimes difficult to return to merchants and consumers. At this time, new technology or model is needed to break the ceiling of the industry and empower the e-commerce industry.How IOST helps:With IOST’s consortium chain, any seller can publish goods through a standard smart contract template, and buyers can search for the corresponding goods through the blockchain network, or even directly pay the seller in tokens, achieving decentralized transactions.In the future, products will be more open and transparent, so anyone will be able to search through the blockchain network. Once consumers feel that a product is not suitable for sale, such as some contraband, they can report it directly. Then, a third party composed of merchants and users can be randomly generated on-chain to judge the product. If the product is considered unsuitable for trading, it will be taken off the shelf.In addition, the e-commerce chain based on IOST BaaS can also decentralize the platform’s interests and return the value generated by users to users.11. Advertising and Entertainment FieldChallenges faced:At present, traditional advertising models are losing popularity rapidly among users, and publishers of advertisements do not get their due income. Users may receive a poor experience, and the advertising platforms also face the risk of losing users.In addition, the appearance of advertising bots that imitate human patterns and produce fake clicks in ads cause publishers to suffer a lot of losses, at this point, existing anti-fraud techniques hardly prevent this from happening. Many advertising publishing platforms earn revenue and shares based on the number of clicks on advertisements. Therefore, there lacks a strong subjective willingness to monitor the actual clicks, which has led some advertisers to deceive content publishers with bots.How IOST helps:With IOST’s Consortium Chain, all parties of the advertising supply chain, including consumers, will co-exist in a decentralized platform ecosystem. Consumers will participate in designing, producing, creating and innovating with businesses. Since consumers can observe the information and data of each node on the blockchain, the trust relationship between advertisements and consumers may be transformed into machine trust and data trust.In the future, each advertisement can accurately locate each consumer according to the information flow and database on the blockchain node, avoiding ineffective placement and excessive disturbing to consumers, while maximizing benefits. The severe reduction in advertising costs may reduce consumer costs too and achieve a win-win situation. The biggest role of blockchain technology in the field of advertising is to integrate all the intermediate parties in the industrial chain, break the data isolation of each node, and use blockchain technology to reach a broad consensus among advertisers, traffic owners, and users, achieving mutual trust at the lowest cost and improve the efficiency of the entire industry chain.12. Medical/Beauty FieldChallenges faced:After entering the 21st century, the medical beauty industry has become the third-largest industry after the automotive industry and the aviation industry, with a total annual market of around 150 billion US dollars. However, some outstanding challenges in this industry include: unlicensed and/or false licenses, unsafe medical beauty drugs, frequently leaked medical data, and some institutions are even constantly wandering on the edge of the law, which has seriously hindered the development of the medical beauty industry.How IOST helps:Through the IOST BaaS consortium chain, it is possible to achieve decentralized management, immutable tracking, and auditing, data traceability, reliability and easy to use, privacy and security. Applying it to the medical beauty industry will help in providing safety services for the global medical beauty ecosystem. At the level of medical institutions, blockchain technology can achieve unified management of distribution, inventory management, and medical staff, and realize a decentralized collaborative office system. At the consumer level, it can provide predictable effects to consumers, help consumers choose the most appropriate medical solution, and record unchangeable medical data on consumer information to protect personal privacy rights.B. Top Business CasesAt present, IOST has developed a high-performance blockchain system, the IOST BaaS platform, based on the underlying core technologies of blockchain. IOST targets four major areas: anti-counterfeit & traceability, supply chain finance, data asset sharing, and evidence record. It provides accurate and effective docking for supply and demand in the industry and has achieved considerable social and economic benefits. Empower the physical industry with innovative blockchain technology in multiple areas.1. Aerospace Data PlatformStrategic cooperation with the global leading drone company EHang, using IOST Pass to provide a safe and reliable data management system for drone companies to ensure that the operating system data is encrypted, verified and tamperproof against third parties, this also guarantees the validity of the drone flight data for the Civil Aviation Administration.2. Artwork Traceability SystemStrategic cooperation with the gallery of the European Art Association, the top antique dealer in China. IOST Source was used to record the partial property rights certificate on the chain. Information cannot be tampered after being recorded and has a unique ID on the chain; each exhibit will be strictly screened before being recorded to ensure that the collector holds the genuine product, which will provide a strong guarantee for the healthy and orderly development of the art market.3. Traditional Games “chainify” Transition SystemFormally signed a contract with King Kong Games, the first game listing company on the NEEQ, the existing game development, distribution, communication and profit model for games through the IOST blockchain, breaking the barriers of trust between players and game developers, putting the core assets on the chain, and realize digital asset rights and digital asset circulation in games.4. P2P Power Trading SystemPartnership with Fujimi City Power Plant, the third-largest power plant in Japan, to develop the IOST-based consortium chain suitable for its business. All power information can be jointly managed by the participants, and users can more smoothly and efficiently settle power transactions. The mayor of Fujimi, Japan said that the project has profound significance for residents and power companies throughout the city.5. Shanyiou Information Disclosure PlatformTraditional charities are usually inefficient, insufficiently open & transparent and slow & questionable in the matter of distribution. IOST Enterprise- Aiou Technology launched a charity information disclosure platform based on blockchain technology, in conjunction with Ningbo and Changsha local governments, the China Enterprise Federation and China Software Association, to promote the transparency of charity organizations and contribute to the prevention and control of the epidemic.After the platform was launched, it attracted the attention of major mainstream media. People’s Daily, Xinhuanet, and Tencent all expressed their recognition of the blockchain model of charity platform + charity innovation. At present, the charity assets publicized by the Shanyiou platform are nearly one billion yuan, and thousands of items have been donated, providing donations for about 20 provinces and cities nationwide. With the development of the cooperation, it is expected that in the future, only one hundred members of the China Enterprise Federation and China Soft Association will join the Shanyiou Charity Information Publicity Platform.6. Blockchain Education PlatformJointly launched an online education tool with BlockDevs Asia, using the decentralized, verifiable, and tamper-resistant storage system of the IOST technology to store the learning certificate in the blockchain database, which can ensure the authenticity of the user’s learning process, making learning credential verification more effective, secure and simple.7. Public Welfare Traceability PlatformCooperation with Mantra and Apopo Foundation, based on the IOST blockchain, every donation will be recorded, and the donor can clearly check the whereabouts of the donation and related information.

Initial Results for IOST 20...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q1 2020 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.16 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1.24M IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeThe contribution rewards for IOST partner nodes are provided by the IOST Foundation. From March 10, 2019, to March 9, 2020, a total of 2% of the total circulation was issued, which is 420 million IOST. As described, 50% of the contribution reward is allocated based on the number of votes and the remaining 50% according to the contribution reward mechanism.Note: Beginning March 10, 2020, IOST will conduct ranking and reward distribution according to the Node Program v2.0.Assessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from Jan 3rd to Jan 10th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers have been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that were similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where an assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q4 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each node's account. For disputes please contact your regional contact (China, Japan, Korea or International) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 23:59 Jan 16th (GMT+8).The final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Friday, Jan 17.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by the end of February, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith excellent rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to better incentivize nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative. Also, keep an eye on your Node discussion groups for requests for support in several upcoming initiatives run by the core team, these count to your contributions too!To become a node, join the IOST ecosystem and start earning rewards please check out the Servi & Partner Node Registration Guide.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: https://t.me/officialiosOfficial Announcement Channel: https://t.me/iost_announcementsIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenTerry Wang Twitter: https://twitter.com/terrence_iostJimmy Zhong Twitter: https://twitter.com/jimmyzhong_iostSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficial/Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-Group……………………………………………………………………………………….Initial Results for IOST 2020 Q1 Contribution Rankings and Rewards was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Node Program v2.0 Is O...

IOST Node Program v2.0Since 2019, more than 400 partner nodes from about 20 countries around the world have joined the IOST ecosystem, including numerous media enterprises, exchanges, top tech teams, enthusiastic communities, etc. With the joint efforts of everyone, IOST has achieved a total staking volume of more than 4 billion IOST and also recorded great achievements in multiple fields such as payments, public welfare, education, traceability, mass adoption and compliance progress.To attract more partners to the IOST node ecosystem while ensuring the interests of the main contributors, IOST now presents the Node Program v2.0, which has been be in effect from March 10, 2020.A. Introduction to the Contribution Reward SystemThe objective of the Contribution Reward System is to incentivize all Nodes to contribute towards building and developing the ecosystem, as well as allowing Nodes that do not receive a large share of votes to still earn a good amount of rewards for their significant contributions to the IOST ecosystem.The following document lays out the new contribution reward system. Your feedback and suggestion are welcome.B. Overview of Contribution Reward PoolAnnual contribution rewards account for 2% of the total supply of IOST, 1% coming from inflation and 1% provided by the IOS Foundation.50% of the contribution reward is allocated based on the number of votes, so the more votes, the more rewards. The remaining 50% will be allocated according to the contribution reward mechanism, which will be explained in detail in this article.C. Reward Distribution and Timeline1. Election rewards are issued daily and contribution rewards are issued quarterly (every 3 months).2. Quarterly contribution reports should be submitted at the end of each quarter. Rewards will be issued after the final rating results are announced.3. The system calculates the number of votes obtained by the node on a daily basis and the rewards for the share of votes are distributed based on the average voting share received during the quarter.D. Contribution Evaluation Method1. Partner nodes submit their contribution reports on a quarterly basis, describing in detail each quarter’s contribution to the IOST ecosystem. (Check this template for more info: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPM)2. The IOST Foundation evaluates the contribution reports of each partner node.3. According to the contribution ranking, every partner node will get the tier level matching their contribution value and get the corresponding rewards to its tier.4. Partner nodes can choose one of the following contribution categories to submit a contribution report. The selected contribution category must be the most relevant to the nature of its contribution content. If the node operator also makes some contributions that belong to another category(s), these contributions need to be described in the contribution report and will be counted together in the final ranking. For example, multiple DApp developers have launched DApps of equal value, but one of the DApp developers has promoted his DApp, which will give the partner node extra points and improve its ranking.Specific contribution categories include:Content creation and promotionDAppsIntegrations (wallet, exchange, browser, etc.)Events / Meetups / HackathonsCommunity BuildingOthers (On-boarding & Referral)E. Evaluation criteria for each contribution categoryEach contribution report is evaluated by the following criteria:1. Content creation and promotionSpread the awareness on IOST to crypto fans and mainstream users to attract more users and developers to join the IOST network. First, the content production of the partner nodes must be of high quality, but more importantly, the number of views or reads for these content. It should be placed on a platform that can get a lot of exposure outside the IOST community and shared through social platforms, news portals, and crypto communities.Content quality (accuracy, production quality)Views / clicks / forwardsReadability of the contentMedia or personal brandingSocial media campaigns or activities2. DAppsValue-added to the ecosystem (for example: whether you DApp is an interesting and useful new DApp or just a plain copy of a DApp that already exists on IOST)Daily active usersDaily trading volume3. Integrations (wallet, exchange, browser, etc.)Value-added to the ecosystem (whether it is an interesting and useful new integration or a copy of an existing one)Downloads / viewsDaily active usersToken transaction volume4. Events / Meetups / HackathonsEvent quality (content, theme, speakers, etc.)The number of participantsMedia reports and distribution5. CommunityCommunity activities or campaignsCommunity user base and growthSocial media activities or campaignsIOST community support and interaction6. Compulsory dutiesJoin at least two IOST node conferences every quarterRetweeting or distributing at least 6 IOST articles in your community.If a node fails to fulfill the above duties, its contribution tier will be downgraded by one.F. How to Submit a Contribution ReportContribution reports should be submitted via: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPMEach contribution must be tagged in a numbered list with a clear description. Each contribution should contain as much verifiable documentation as possible. Any unverifiable contribution will not be included in the contribution evaluation ranking.Each contribution report will only include the contributions made within the past three months. For example, the DAU of a DApp should only describe the growth during the last 3 months.G. Contribution Evaluation & RankingThe IOS Foundation will evaluate the contribution reports based on the criteria mentioned above. There are 5 tiers in total, the spots in the 1st to 4th tier will be limited whereas tier 5 has unlimited spots.H. Contribution rewards by tiersRegardless of the category, node partners of the same tier will receive the same amount of rewards. The annual contribution rewards pool of 210 million IOST will be divided into tiers and their corresponding rewards as follows:Partner nodes in the same tier will get the same amount of rewards;*Rewards for one node= total tier reward/number of partner nodes in the tier.Taking a 91-day quarter as an example, say all spots in tier 1 to 4 are filled, with 20 nodes in tier 5, totaling 102 nodes. The results will be: (Keep in mind that in tier 1 to 4, as every spot is taken in the example below, the rewards shown is the minimum you can get.)I. Fairness and impartiality of the evaluationThe contribution evaluation and ranking of partner nodes will be jointly carried out by 10 members in different sectors from the IOS Foundation. Initial ranking will be made first and any partner node can then open a dispute.Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Partner Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

IOST Updated Mainnet v3.3.2...

IOST Updated Mainnet Olympus v3.3.2 Official LaunchOn February 25, 2019, the IOST mainnet Olympus v1.0 was officially live. IOST is now the most scalable and decentralized public blockchain available for users and developers and is able to support millions of users and thousands of nodes on the network. IOST creates a scalable network with high throughput through the original Proof of Believability (PoB) consensus mechanism.Since the first mainnet release, IOST has attracted more than 400 partner nodes from more than 20 countries around the world. Over a span of a year, IOST has never stopped working on continuous improvement frequently and multi-directionally. Today, we introduce to you the latest update: Mainnet Version 3.3.2 Is Now Officially Launched!The IOST mainnet Olympus v3.3.2 further completes the cryptographic library, laying a good development base for cross-chain technology and atomic swap; we have added new tools for cropping block data to reduce disk usage while ensuring the stable operation of nodes, which greatly reduces the threshold for nodes to join IOST. In addition, the IOST dev team optimized the code quality to improve the stability of the mainnet when running programs, improved code testing to ensure security, and designed a better code management.Below are the detailed updates, new functions and the code optimization of the latest mainnet version:Two Major Updates1. Further improvement of the cryptographic libraryIn the previous version v3.3.1., we had added a new hash function to the on-chain cryptography library: ripemd160.Cross-chain atomic swaps are an increasingly widely-used requirement. At the moment, the most common implementation of the atomic swap is Hash Time Locked Contracts, being the ripemd160 protocol is one of its most important cornerstones. Projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Decred, etc., also make use of ripemd160 for Atomic Swap.References:https://github.com/decred/atomicswaphttps://github.com/AltCoinExchange/ethatomicswapAfter IOST integrates ripemd160, third-party developers will be able to implement atomic swaps with other mainstream chains. Furthermore, a completely decentralized cross-chain exchange will also become a reality.2. Expired data cleaningWhen a new node joins the IOST ecosystem, it is often a requirement to download a blockchain snapshot to start it. The current snapshots are over 200GB which requires massive data traffic and disk storage. This massive data requirement is a potential obstacle to limit new nodes from joining.In version 3.3.2, we developed a tool for cropping block data that can delete early block data. It can reduce the disk usage by 20 times, from about 240GB to just 13GB, without any side effects to a node’s regular operations.For nodes that will not produce blocks, it is recommended to use the simplified snapshots to start the blockchain.Related documents:https://developers.iost.io/docs/en/4-running-iost-node/Deployment.html#snapshot-with-pruned-historyThree Main Code Quality Improvements1. Improved program stability at runtimeIn the previous mainnet version v3.3.1, we have already fixed a minor but persistent memory leak. This fix improves the stability of the program operation.2. Test boostIn v3.3.2, we updated the testing and continuous integration of the code. Stronger testing results in better reliability.3. Better code managementIn v3.3.2, we switched the Golang dependency management to Google’s recently launched Go Modules, among other external dependencies that were also upgraded. This will simplify our code and let us implement the improvements proposed by the community more easily. The points described are beneficial for the long-term evolution, bugs fixing, operating efficiency and maintainability of the IOST mainnet.Future PlansThe short-term focus will be to improve IOST's cross-chain technology with third-party partners.Specifically, we will implement IOST's light nodes in a well-known cross-chain ecosystem. This requires us to make some corresponding changes to the IOST main chain, such as generating a receipt every time a block producer node is rotated and implementing a progressive Merkel tree to facilitate block verification on light nodes. This may require one to two incompatible version upgrades.Constant iteration and updates are the solid foundation for IOST mainnet's stable operation. The release of Olympus v3.3.2 is another proof of our continuous development and technological innovation. IOST will keep upgrading the mainnet in conjunction with the Dawn of IOST plan.From here, we would like to express our gratitude to the IOST development team for your unwavering efforts and welcome all new developers to join our developer community.

IOST Hackathon in Japan| Un...

On Feb 20 and 21 2020, IOST jointly hosted a 2-day “Education x Blockchain” HIVEHack hackathon with the well-known private university Kindai in Japan, who provided the venue and incentivize professors and students to participate in the Hackathon. This event was a great success with the missions to:create higher awareness & understanding of blockchain and IOST among the talented young developersenable non-tech background students to experience programming, product development and create a prototype using a smart contract programmingunlock the potentials of the young talents and attract the future top-tier developers and teams from the Kindai University and its partners to the IOST ecosystem.Most hackathons are sponsored or awarded by large companies, but it is rare to involve creating prototypes (products programed by smart contracts). This time, IOST and the university professor have set and achieved this clear goal to allow students (including non-technical background students) to create prototypes using smart contracts. With the participation of 5 guest speakers, 1 local media and 19 enthusiastic students, the event was a great 2-day learning and growth journey for every participant.The IOST foundation would like to express our gratitude towards the Kindai University and special thanks to Asst. Prof. Moriyama., the students and the guest speakers for making this educational event happen.Since the set-up of IOST’s Japanese branch, IOST has been committed to promoting free education activities on blockchain technology in Japan while also scouting and training potential blockchain engineers. In 2019, IOST’s “Blockchain Free Education Program” was launched in 7 universities and educational institutions in Japan and provided blockchain courses to over 300 students.DAY 1 of HackathonMr. Terry Wang, CTO, IOST, Guest SpeakerIOST Co-founder Terry gave an opening speech to welcome the event participants into this 2-day growth journey. Due to the Corona Outbreak situation and restrictions, Tery could only interact with the participants via online video call. He shared his personal story from being a student at Princeton University, a Research Teaching Assistant after graduation, followed by being an Engineer in tech startups in Silicon Valley, and now started up his own company- a leading blockchain network- IOST.Terry provided the highlights on IOST technology and its benefits for programmers such as using Javascript and the ability to update smart contracts after deploying on IOST as compared to other blockchain networks. He wished the student to learn and grow from this and the future opportunities brought to them.Mr. Masato Shikata, Designer, Hachidori Inc, Guest SpeakerMr. Masato Shikata launched a fashion brand at the age of 17 and started web production himself for branding. He accumulated experiences in various fields from fashion to IT and later on, joined Hachidori Inc to manage designs, engineering, customer service, marketing and strategy planning.Tips and advice on product development procedures such as design thinking and prototype making were delivered to the students. Masato said “Product development is making things you haven’t seen yet. Sometimes it’s better to write working code quickly than writing good codes with spending a lot of time”.Students also gained hands-on experience with basic knowledge of blockchain technology, and smart contracts lectured by IOST core community, EverSystem engineering team.Blockchain Hackathon started. 4 teams- IOSTicket, TAS, Good Job, and Health Conscious presented with four ideas of products on the first day.Students stayed up late to continue their developments and working on smart contract programming.DAY 2 of HackathonOn the first day, the students learned about the procedures for product development including the “concepts and ideas”. On the second day, they received the legal knowledge necessary to commercialize the product, and advice from experts to start a startup.Mr. Jim Maricondo, WAVE Financial, Guest SpeakerJim is a master’s degree holder in computer science at Stanford University. He was formerly a Japanese GM of ConsenSys and had rich experiences in demonstration experiments of blockchain technology with enterprises. Jim introduced examples of tech startups in Silicon Valley to the students.Mr. Yui Takai, Attorney at Law — ZeLo Law Firm, Guest SpeakerZeLo provides product development and business/crypto-asset support using blockchain technology. Takai described the privacy policy of products that utilize blockchain technology.Students concentrated on working on smart contract and team presentationThe time is up! Teams’ Product Presentations!All teams were able to create prototype products using smart contracts (programs running on the blockchain). Students with no programming experience on the team managed to experience programming some of the products.Teams and Products DetailsTASMAccess (Room entry & exit management) control system. Hash the MAC address (personal device) and record connection / disconnection with the access point as entry / exit. It will be implemented in Kinki University Electronic Commerce Laboratory.IOSTicketCoupon issue application (smartphone compatible). Create a blockchain main net account just by entering its name. Issuers (companies, event organizers, etc.) and users can check the history. Encourage the natural occurrence of the community.Good Job!Records the history of the corporate website (URL) privacy policy. You can add applications as bookmarks. Visualize how IT giants work with our information.Health ConsciousRecords health data such as heart rate. Encourage the formation of a community where people with illness can interact openly. This team was attended by an entrepreneurer who started a genetic medicine information platform startup during studying at Kindi University.Some students started programming from the age of 11 while students who have no programming experience, all provided positive feedback about their learning and takeaways with IOST’s 2-day Hackathon Event.After the presentation, all participants voted for the students who thought they worked hardest using a voting system using blockchain technology created by graduate students of Moriyama Laboratory.IOST Foundation is glad to have launched multiple successful educational programs in Japan to empower the next generation into the blockchain technology. Let’s unleash the power of blockchain, and unlock the potentials of the future talents!Join The IOST Community!With a mainnet that is one-year-old, IOST has swiftly risen to become a world-leading public chain renowned for its numerous government collaborations and enterprise partnerships around the world.IOST’s Partner Program is widely praised as one of the best staking programs globally by blockchain research institutions for its attractive returns, low risk and ease of use.

IOST X Liebi | Interoperabi...

In the current blockchain industry, almost every blockchain project is an independent ecosystem composed of its own users, tokens, and DApps with lacking connection to the outside world. This is a potential barrier to the future development of blockchain in general. IOST believes that the ultimate solution to the barrier is through cross-chain technology.In August 2019, IOST collaborated with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)of Singapore to seek the best interoperability solution. Liebi, a Chinese development team with rich experience in the field, is chosen as the winner to work with the IOST development team on the seamless IOST cross-chain bridge that enables the transfer of the information, transactions and asset values between IOST and other blockchains.IOST Cross-Chain Bridge: Bringing the Internet of Value to RealityAmong the numerous problems that blockchains face, the weak interoperability (if any) between them has greatly limited the mass adoption. For both private and public blockchains, the key to realizing the Internet of Value lies in the cross-chain technology. It is a solution for the isolationism in the blockchain industry, and a bridge for expansion and connection with the outside world.Through the IOST cross-chain bridge, IOST blocks can be easily forwarded and mapped to different blockchain networks through the relay chain.For users, IOST cross-chain bridge enables cross-chain asset transactions, and other services in the relay chain, e.g. DeFi, DEX, Staking, etc. It can bring extra liquidity for the asset and enhanced security to users.For developers, IOST cross-chain bridge can enable cross-chain smart contract interoperation, reduce multi-chain development costs, realize multi-chain user sharing, data interconnection, and interoperability.IOST Cross-Chain Bridge Architecture and Work ProgressCross-chain architecture diagramIOST cross-chain bridge is an open-source project based on Substrate. Combined with Relay Service and multi-signature mechanisms, it can build a secure, flexible, and scalable cross-chain without modifying the core functions of IOST. The overall solution includes Inter-chain communication, runtime modules, and guaranteed security.Currently, we are working on the development of the base modules for inter-chain communication, including RUST-IOST RPC interface encapsulation, IOST node transformation, etc. In this solution, the transformed IOST light nodes actively collect transactions broadcasted by the IOST mainnet, the Relay Service then verifies the Merkle Tree block header, and finally forwards the data.Inter-chain communication IOST -> side chainOn the other side, the side chain receives the blocks from the Relay Service and packages them into the relay network to share the block data with other blockchain networks. Correspondingly, IOST light nodes will also collect other network’s blocks forwarded from the Relay Service, and after verification, broadcast them on the IOST mainnet, so users can directly utilize cross-chain smart contracts deployed on the IOST mainnet to complete operations.Inter-chain communication side chain -> IOSTHow Can I Participate in the Development and Promotion of the Cross-Chain Bridge?As A DeveloperIf you are capable of developing based on Rust and Golang, you are very welcome to submit a Pull Request or Run test in Rust-IOST, IOST Relay Service, Runtime and other repositories, and send us feedback. If you are a tech enthusiast, you can read the source code and related technical articles on IOST cross-chain bridge to learn how to integrate IOST cross-chain bridge to your own development.Related codebase:bifrost-codes/bifrostbifrost-codes/rust-iostAs a UserIf you are a Liebi voter, kindly forward this article so that more people get to know the progress of IOST in interoperability.

IOST X ROAD | Working Toget...

Alongside the development of smart cities and smart transport, in recent years, the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) has also been in the spotlight. Blockchain technology can help IoV to evolve with its unique data authenticity confirmation feature and by helping all parties who participate in data generation coordinate their interests.By the rapid expansion of 5G connectivity, IoV industry, which requires high levels of communication and connection features, will also be able to accelerate its development and a large number of new use cases and business models will flourish in the industry. As an efficient, trustworthy, and technology-driven blockchain project, IOST is paying close attention to the application of blockchain technology in the field of Internet of Vehicles.Recently, IOST and ROAD have reached a strategic partnership. Both parties will explore common areas in multiple application scenarios such as on-chain vehicles, human-vehicle interaction, vehicle to vehicle communication and vehicle-road connectivity, to jointly promote the market and development of IoV systems in the 5G network environment.ROAD to assist IOST boost IoV applicationsIOST is a blockchain platform developed for online services providers. Based on its original PoB consensus mechanism and the layer2 expansion scheme, IOST can realize horizontal expansion and high throughput, providing value creation for third-party developers, content creators and enterprises.IOST is more decentralized than the DPoS based EOS and more scalable than Ethereum. After the mainnet launch, IOST has become one of the world’s big 4 leading DApp platforms alongside Ethereum, EOS and Tron.ROAD will join the IOST ecosystem and open vehicle data to IOST, it will also assist IOST in building a decentralized IoV node and open APIs to the IOST network. In the future, both parties will have a large amount of data exchange and the yet traditional payment services that are enabled on ROAD will be open to evolve with the smart contracts on IOST.At present, IOST intends to create a world-class blockchain technology infrastructure; through this cooperation with ROAD, IOST can explore and open the automotive industry to blockchain application scenarios and serve the global automotive industry and users.Blockchain technology to drive the IoV business revolutionAt present, there are 330 million owned cars in China and more than 1.2 billion units worldwide: maintenance services, second-hand market, financial services and other segments form a huge market, some reports even show that it might reach a $800 billion annual market cap; and there are yet nearly infinite amounts of data to be collected. What is unique of this market is that the collection, authentication and exchange environment of automobile data is still the weakest field in the industry.Every kind of data produced in the life cycle of a car, from the manufacturing stage to sales, maintenance, daily use, and re-circulation has an important application value. However, these data are not being effectively protected and have not been squeezed to the fullest, also, the actual data contributors rarely obtain benefits from it and the highly decentralized nature of data also makes them difficult to be collected, authenticated, and to maintain. As a result, a large number of black box transactions occur in the automotive data market.ROAD aims to create an interactive and accounting system based on blockchain technology that accompanies vehicles during its life cycle, the auto-ledger. The auto-ledger uses individual interactions and cluster intelligence to build a ROAD vehicle network and intelligent transportation ecosystem to realise business applications, it will achieve data authenticity and privacy protection with blockchain. In this ecosystem, ROAD tokens will be used to coordinate the resource exchange between the vehicle nodes and the blockchains.IOST and ROAD will jointly explore common ground in multiple application scenarios such as on-chain vehicles, human -vehicle interaction, vehicle to vehicle communication and vehicle -road connectivity; promote the market and development of IoV systems under the 5G network environment and use blockchain technology for car purchasing, car utilization and driving, roads & city management along with other scenarios.This partnership is another example of the real world application of IOST blockchain technology. IOST along with developers and communities is committed to build the world’s first decentralized blockchain project based on scalability and the world’s largest decentralized system. In the future, IOST and ROAD will also have more cooperation in terms of technology development, applications and communities.About ROAD teamOfficial website: https://roadpro.ioMost of the ROAD team members are former Alibaba or have previously worked in car related Internet platforms or companies, providing them experience in the field and in business development.Founder Li YanLinLi has worked in Alibaba China for 6 years as manager of the exhibition development department, he was responsible of the exhibition network, professional market channels, government relations and innovation.

IOST X Suterusu | Providing Layer 2 Privacy Protection and Enabling More Application Scenarios for IOSTWhile the improvement of blockchain computing performance is driving the acceleration of blockchain applications, the lack of privacy and transaction data protection are important factors that could restrict the general development of blockchain.To this end, IOST recently reached strategic partnership with the privacy protection centered project Suterusu, both parties will carry out in-depth technical cooperation on blockchain privacy protection and applications.Suterusu will use their zero-knowledge protocol ZK-ConSNARK to build a Layer-2 sidechain for IOST enabling functions such as private transfers, private finance and private contracts on IOST, also, it can provide IOST based DeFi projects higher levels of privacy protection.Privacy protection to make on-chain data more securePrivacy protection: protection of personal data on the Internet.The main reason why for the internet to be so relevant in the changes produced in human society throughout the 20th century and so important in our daily life is because of the data generated through this network. The problem comes when in order for that data to be processed and used, privacy is affected and data must become visible, that is, for this data to be useful, it must be visible. This situation has caused data to be frequently sold and misused, while Internet giants can make huge profits individuals can only be used by Internet companies to become various recommended counters based on the data they generate.Addressing data leaks and misuses requires technological innovation.Privacy computing is the cutting-edge technology that by changing the way data is used, can make data “usable and invisible”, this is the real deal and what is actually needed for privacy protection. In fact, both the GDPR in Europe and California ’s legislation on privacy data protection show that the new proposition of data protection on the Internet age is clear. As result, privacy computing is becoming a hot track for the active participation of large global Internet companies and financial companies.Privacy is also an extremely important topic in encryption. Companies and individuals may not wish to publish all their information on the blockchain without any kind of restrictions and let them be read by others at will. Taking Ethereum as example, its smart contract technology does not provide privacy protection, so users’ data on smart contracts can be seen and tracked by anyone, this greatly limits the application of their technology in real world. For data and information that may need higher privacy protection, public ledgers that expose information on the blockchain are not suitable, hece, when IOST provides such kind of privacy protection on-chain, it will greatly benefit the cooperation between IOST, more enterprises and governments.IOST X Suterusu: public chain + privacy protection to enable more real world applicationsSuterusu’s technology is based on their original zero-knowledge proof protocol ZK-conSNARK, which supports heterogeneous blockchains to implement privacy protection functions, without the need for “trusted presets”; optimized ZKP for faster proof speed; and SuterVM that supports smart contracts, which can achieve privacy protection for digital assets.Regarding the partnership between IOST and Suterusu, Suterusu CEO Hou Zheng Peng said: “IOST has improved the computing efficiency of the public chain, especially in terms of decentralization and smart contracts, also, the IOST ecosystem construction strategy very innovative. Suterusu will use the knowledge in the field of privacy protection technology to make a positive contribution to the construction of IOST ecosystem.”IOST X Suterusu: The combination of public chain and privacy protection will provide more application scenarios for IOST in digital finance and DApps such as zero-knowledge identity authentication.A. Digital financeTraceless on-chain transactionsOn-chain. transactions are the basic function of the blockchain. Suterusu can support IOST to protect the core information of transactions made on the IOST chain. Suterusu’s zk-conSNARK does not require a “trusted preset” and can achieve “constant-level traffic”. These two characteristics will also directly improve the security and verification efficiency of IOST mainnet transactions.2. Decentralized paymentsBlockchain payment can be used to expand financial services and improve cross-border financial efficiency. The concept of “controllable anonymity” has been explicitly proposed in the Digitial Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP) plan proposed by the People’s Bank of China, Suterusu can provide “controllable anonymity” for IOST in the payment field, which is of great help for the application and adoption of IOST decentralized payment.3. Decentralized Financial DeFiIn the DeFi, Suterusu can support IOST and implement a smart contract function with more application value. For example, some preset rules can be set for the contract: Regulations in different countries that may be different. Certain assets can only be sent to users of certain nationalities; or certain assets can only be received by accounts that meet certain conditions, such as the number of assets held to a certain level and the length of time held. Everyone can see that these preset rules are enforced, but information about the amount of the transfer, what kind of assets and the person who transferred it is protected.B. Decentralized applications such as zero-knowledge authenticationCurrently, password-based authentication protocols are widely used on websites. So when users log on to the website, their identity will be immediately leaked to the webmaster; however, if users use zero-knowledge proof of identity, they can guarantee their privacy when logging on to the website. Basic Attention is a project based on the blockchain to help users browse the Internet without trace, with tens of millions of monthly active users, it is one of the most widely adopted projects in the blockchain field. The partnership between IOST and Suterusu will provide privacy protection for the construction of decentralized applications based on IOST, guaranteeing the user’s data privacy and data security.Through this partnership, IOST will achieve on-chain data privacy protection; this will greatly broaden the practical application of IOST public chain technology and will also provide more private and security services to the IOST mainnet users.In the future, IOST will go hand in hand with Suterusu to conduct in-depth technical research and cooperation in cryptography applications, blockchain privacy protection and other aspects, working together on mass adoption, so that blockchain technology truly benefits everyone.About the Suterusu teamSuterusu, giving all tokens privacy.Website: www.suterusu.iCEO Hou ZhengPengMr Hou has been engaged in the development and promotion of open source projects for many years.

IOST VS Coronavirus:AIOU’s ...

The coronavirus epidemic is affecting billions of people in China and beyond, and people worldwide is trying to help by donating materials in need. However, traditional charities are usually inefficient, insufficiently open & transparent and slow & questionable in the matter of distribution. Their credibility was further compromised due to the recent case of Wuhan RedCross organization.As a blockchain technology company, IOST is fully aware of its social responsibility and deeply cares about the epidemic in Wuhan. Last week, Aiou Technology, a project in IOST’s ecosystem, launched a charity information disclosure platform based on blockchain technology, in conjunction with Ningbo and Changsha local governments, the China Enterprise Federation and China Software Association, to promote the transparency of charity organizations and contribute to the prevention and control of the epidemic.The Fight Against Corona Virus Was Compromised Due To Long-Existing ProblemsCorona virus can infect both animals and people and cause illnesses of the respiratory tract. The infections can range from the common cold to dangerous conditions like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS also caused by a coronavirus.On December 8, 2019, a case of unexplained pneumonia was found in Wuhan.On January 9, 2020, the pneumonia pathogen was initially identified as a novel coronavirus.On January 23, in order to prevent the epidemic from further spreading by the high-density population movement brought in by Spring Break in China, Wuhan announced in the early hours of the day that it would “close the city” at 10:00, declaring quarantine.Wuhan had instantly attracted the attention of all people throughout the country and numerous supplies swarmed to the disaster area. In addition to the funds allocated by the central government, there were also donations coming from home and abroad.However, the situation did not turn out the way as expected by the public: on one side, there was a large number of donations of medical supplies, while on the other side, lack of material necessary to fight against the epidemic was reportedly in great short, with many hospitals directly and openly asking the community for help.Subsequently, in response to the public request, local Red Cross announced the distribution of the medical materials and thus exposed countless problems. This completely shattered the credibility of all charitable institutions and the general public are unwilling to make any more donations to such organisations and now looking for other ways to donate and rescue Wuhan.A series of problems emerged from this incident: flaws in information disclosure; unreasonable donation distribution; barriers along the way transporting emergency supplies; etc. How to solve these problems to make charities operate more efficiently, openly, and fairly?IOST Against Corona Virus: Improve Transparency For Charities By Blockchain TechnologyBlockchain is essentially a distributed database with the advantages of being open, transparent, traceable, and difficult to tamper. With non-temperability and traceability at the heart of charity information disclosure, blockchain technology is the perfect candidate to improve the credibility of public welfare organizations.As blockchain is a decentralized public ledger, by recording all donations on this ledger, donors and recipients can be effectively connected and everyone can check the flow of donated materials.In addition, the use of blockchain smart contracts can also solve problems such as complex processes and black box operations in traditional charity projects. All the terms and execution process of the smart contract are formulated in advance and carried out under the absolute control of the system. The contract cannot be modified after deployment and neither party can interfere with the execution of the contract. Therefore, smart contracts can efficiently update real-time donation information and accurately execute each donation.In response, to use technology to promote the transparency of charity and fight against the epidemic, the IOST’s ecosystem project Aiou Technology has joined the Ningbo and Changsha government, the China Enterprise Federation, and the China Software Association to launch a information disclosure platform based on the research and development of blockchain technology.Aiou charity information disclosure platform will promote the transparency of charities and help the epidemic prevention and control. As the general public questions charity organisations for not being open nor transparent, blockchain technology can help restore the trust in charity industry by uploading material donation data and usage information to the blockchain, enhancing the transparency and credibility of the informationAiou Information Disclosure PlatformNumerous institutions are on the Aiou information disclosure platform. Whenever some particular or an organization wishes to donate materials or funds to a certain institution, they just need to register on the platform and then they will be able to see the all donation details and also material reception & distribution processes details.For more information, please visit:sy.aioukeji.net.In addition, through this platform, users can also view the summary information, the status of current donations and expenditures in real time. As described in this article, the entire process is completely transparent, traceable and cannot be tampered.May the epidemic recede as soon as possible and all front line medical staff get back home safely; we also hope that with the help of blockchain technology, charity and public welfare can be more transparent, fast and accurate!IOST VS Coronavirus:AIOU’s Charity Information Disclosure Platform Officially Launched! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Seoul Meetup: It’s A W...

On Monday, the 13th, IOST Korea Branch held an offline meetup to kickstart 2020! Despite the cold weather, numerous people attended the meetup with community members, journalists, KOLs, industry leaders, investors, and many others all joining the event.This event was a meaningful opportunity to share the achievements and future plans of IOST. We would like to thank all attendees once again for your participation!The following Youtube video is created by KOL D.Go of D.Street, IOST Korea Node. You can feel the atmosphere of IOST Korea Meetup briefly through the video.https://medium.com/media/1d9bd2519aceca6bf5a435dbf5082681/hrefThe event was held in Monaco Space, Gangnam, Korea. A total of 150 people registered in less than a week, and about 130 people participated braved the cold weather of Seoul to turn up that day.Escalator to the venueThe itinerary of this meetup was as follows:Opening introductionWhy I chose IOST Platform as a developerQED: Speech by a Tier-1 servi nodePast achievements of IOST and 2020 planTerry: IOST CTO addressBlake: IOST Korea country manager presentationLive Q&A: QED & BlakeIOST Hoodie lucky drawNetworkingQED: Why I chose IOST over other platforms as a developerMost blockchain projects always paint a grand vision to the public about their technology. However, apart from the testnet results, very few projects are successful in the time frame promised to the actual mainnet launch. Also, if you actually pick out the platform on which your Dapp runs, that number must be decreased. Among them, IOST, ETH, EOS, and TRON are the platforms on which continuous user inflow and DAPP ecosystem are expanded. IOST is clearly a latecomer if compared to the other 3 platforms. However, IOST has a huge advantage compared to ETH, EOS and TRON. QED, which is 1st tier servi node, explained in detail the benefits of the IOST platform.The three most important elements of the platform that QED considered for development were:Fast Block Finality timeStable and low resource feesEase of developmentFast Block Finality timeIn general, you might think that if the response time is fast, everything would be okay. However, there are more things to consider. If you compare IOST to EOS on block time, you can think of it as 0.5s, and you might think that IOST doesn’t have benefit to use.But if you count the time considering Block Finality, which is recorded as a completely immutable block, the IOST is the fastest 29.5s among four public chains. In other words, IOST is the platform that provides the fastest Block Finality Time.Stable and low resource feesIn case of Ethereum, there is a fee per transaction, and user needs to pay the fee. It can be very expensive if the developer supports all of them. Because of this, QED decided to use the staking model. TRON was not suitable because of its slow block time (3 second), which leaves only EOS and IOST remaining.As many blockchain developers know, EOS was excluded because there were too many cases where DAPPs could not play due to EOS CPU & resource problems. If we look closer at the fee model of IOST:The fees incurred by a blockchain are divided into 3 main thingsthe operations costs of processing, such as plus, subtract, multiply,the network costs incurred when a transaction is hit on a node,the storage costs of storing a value.In case of Ethereum, those three are just called GAS. In case of EOS, the contract operation cost is CPU, network cost is NET, and storage cost is RAM. IOST combines contract operation cost and network cost and called iGAS, and contract storage cost is called iRAM.As long as you stake, iRam will charge itself and you will not pay any fee. Therefore, the user doesn’t have to care about Resources, not like EOS.If the transaction stores a value in the blockchain, you will need to pay storage costs. If you delete the saved value on the blockchain, you can refund the storage cost that you paid. Also, if the transaction does not store a value, it is available for free.Also, developer could pay user’s storage cost instead of user. Comparing IOST and EOS, IOST is 7 times cheaper. Therefore, QED concluded that IOST has the most attractive resources model for developers. QED thought that IOST is really well developed platform with lots of consideration for many potential cases.Easy to developQED thought it shouldn’t be difficult to develop blockchain services. People say that it is difficult to develop unless they are familiar with the language. When this happens,people need to find a solution. However, if there are not enough information, it’s hard to figure the problem out.When QED thought it was well developed but he got an error and he doesn’t know why. One of the good example is Solidity.The above statements are very popular code. However, when used in Solidity, an error occurs.Comparing the development languages of the four platforms shows that ETH and TRON use Solidity, EOS uses C++, and IOST uses JavaScript. JavaScript language used by IOST is much more familiar to developers than other languages.This table is a survey of the most familiar languages among developers(source: Developerr’s Q&A platform called Stack Overflow). While the EOS contract language, C ++, is mid-range, JavaScript is the language that developers are most familiar with. IOST can develop contracts using JavaScript.Since the development language is a familiar language, there is an advantage of IOST when writing smart contracts. But there is one more advantage of the IOST platform. Ethereum is in principle impossible to upgrade contracts. (This part is a controversial part among blockchain developers. Smart contracts should / should not be upgradeable)IOST, on the other hand, can upgrade smart contract, allowing contract owners to enable or disable upgrades.Based on the three points above, QED chose the IOST platform. If you would like to check the full PowerPoint, please refer to the following link.QED PPT: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1j3YF9xlYWQGA6XZB3ZgljhqOSZOBp8dJoapH-sS2VlA/edit?usp=sharingAt the end of the presentation, QED demonstrated a game his team developed, showing how fast the actual IOST is.After the announcement of the QED, a video of CTO Terry, who supposed to visit Korea, was played. Unfortunately, Terry can’t visit Korea this time.IOST CTO Terry regretted not being able to attend the Korea Meetup. In this video, Terry explained in detail to the Korean IOST community what IOST is aiming for in the first half of 2020. Since then, Korean country manager Blake has delivered more details on IOST’s business results and plans for 2020.Public blockchain project first invited to CCTV and China’s Great Hall Of The PeopleIOST CTO Terry was invited to CGTN, the global channel of CCTV in the last quarter, to discuss with Huang Zhen, director of the Financial Research Institute of China University of Finance. Terry was also invited to the 17th China ’s Enterprise Development & Blockchain Forum, held at China’s Great Hall Of The People. IOST is the only public blockchain project invited to both parties. These track records exposed IOST to various high level decision makers in China. Based on this, IOST has created the cornerstone for meetings with various governments and companies.Expansion of B2B and B2G projects through AIOU Technology, a subsidiary of IOSTWe will expand the use of consortium chains based on the public blockchain IOST. In addition, discussions are underway with 10 MNCs in China for collaboration in 2020. We will also work with local governments, starting with the Shanghai Police Blockchain Standardization in China. Through this, 2020 IOST intends to achieve two things.We will create sustainable revenue for ourselves and reinvest it in IOST to expand the ecosystem.Through the cooperation of B2B and B2G, we will make a practical use case and achieve mass adoption.Live Q & A took place after the speech by Korean country manager Blake.Participants asked about various contents such as development environment, benefits of participating as a node, business background, and plan for the first half of 2020.The official schedule was finished after a photo shoot, a IOST hoodie lucky-draw, and a networking event. For more than two hours, most participants stayed and listened to the presentation. We would like to thank you again.IOST was able to hear various suggestions from the IOST community through the meetup. IOST will always listen to community opinions and try to reflect them. In the future, we will expand our contact with the community through various methods in Korea as well as in other countries.Thank you for your support of IOST!………………………………………………………..IOST Seoul Meetup: It’s A Wrap! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Exclusive: Krypton Tyc...

What happened?We heard that the IOST Tycoon players were defeated in the cross-chain melee war because our opponents were more experienced at the game!To help IOST Tycoon players make a comeback, Krypton Tycoon has decided to create a new season exclusively for IOST players and giving them a chance to practice more. After all, practice makes perfect.What’s more, Krypton Tycoon will also reward IOST users who registered before Jan 17 by giving extra benefits to them.Krypton Tycoon IOST-Exclusive Season Will Officially Start On 10 am, Jan 17, GMT+8How to play: Search for “Krypton Tycoon” in the search page of TokenPocket wallet.UpdatesSeason rewards: around 150,000 IOST.Adjusted reward distribution and significantly increased conquest rewards.Added Map checkpoints — you must occupy two plots in the checkpoint to successfully occupy it. The reward for the first occupation will be distributed based on the merits and contributions of players in the victory camp.Added built-in chat system.Added language switching system.Other optimizations.RewardsAs the season is delayed by 2 days, all IOST players who registered before Jan 17 will receive 6 Kevin cards.First Season Rebate PromoIn order to thank IOST players for joining the first cross-chain war season, before the start of this season, Krypto Tycoon will also rebate the players who spent IOST in the last season (excluding the consumption of card draw).All players who spend 1000 IOST in the round will receive 1 General El Welch for every 1000 IOST consumed.For all players who spend between 100–1000 IOST in the round, each time they spend 50 IOST, one Larry Oracle card will be gifted.We also have a secret book for players from Tycoon. Take this secret book and become the strongest player of Krypton Tycoon!Stars Tycoon Player SecretsKrypton Tycoon is a fun but also challenging strategy game. Players with smart strategies has the potential to defeat theoretically more powerful opponents.So how can one become a pro in Krypto Tycoon? See the different strategies below:1. Start with elites accumulationTo be strong, you must first have a strong base. The base of your business empire is your elite cards.There are more than thirty business elites with unique characteristics in the tycoon space. The business elites are the core asset of the tycoon and play the most important role in financial management and battles.The elite has five basic combat attributes: attack, defense, load, production speed, and recruitment speed. Upgrading the elite level and elite skills can improve the elite attributes. The attributes of each elite are different, and using a well-balanced elite mix is ​​the key to winning!Using elite fragments can improve the level of the elite. Currently, there are seven categories: white, green, blue, purple, orange, red, and gold. The higher the level, the higher the elite’s attributes and fighting power!Choose the right combination at the beginning and power up to the maximum level.2. Keep a low profileIs it better to fight at all costs at the beginning without a clear strategy? Or is it better to immerse yourself with developing your base and accumulating before taking action?Numerous experiences tell us that Tycoon is a game that slowly accumulates advantages. If you waste physical strength, resources, and soldiers on difficult plots at the beginning, your development speed will be affected.When the development speed is affected the offensive and defensive forces will also be affected. If an enemy starts targeting you and you get suppressed by the enemy, this situation may turn into a vicious circle, and it may become very difficult for you to turn things around.So, the secret is being overly aggressive at the beginning doesn’t work, it will be very difficult to eventually win the game. Build a strong base, accumulate resources fast and you will be victorious!3. Form AlliancesTycoon is a multiplayer game, so no matter how strong you are, you are at a disadvantage if you are alone. To win in the game, it is important to find good allies in the game!The teammates in camp must be united. The group shall choose a leader with experience to lead the whole team.Secondly, it is helpful to establish connections with players from other factions at the right time. If both sides have common enemies, does it mean that the enemy of our enemy is our ally? ;)While forging alliances, we must beware of the “bad guys” who are might stab you in the back. Always be cautious about the true intentions of other players, whether they are your allies or your enemies.We hope that in this new dedicated season for IOST players, everyone can participate more, and grab a win for the IOST Camp in the subsequent cross-chain melee wars!…………………………………………IOST Exclusive: Krypton Tycoon Season Starts Today! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

I now have over x2 amount to hold. Imagine the price going up, I will make more money than I normally should have.But remember, If your IOST collateral goes down in value, specifically down to 125%, 120%, and 115%, you will need to top up more coins to keep the original value of your collateral will be liquidated. If your IOST collateral goes up in value, you can recall the excess. You can manage your loans through your Constant Account page so you know how much to repay and when.Happy Borrowing!About ConstantHeadquartered in California, Constant is an alternative financial services platform designed to strip out the inefficiencies of the traditional banking industry and help people get more out of their money.

Initial Results for IOST Q4...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q4 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.20 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1.32M IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeAssessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from Jan 3rd to Jan 10th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers has been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that where similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated.

IOST Nodes — Contributions ...

IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q4 2019Introduction to the Contribution Reward SystemThe objective of the Contribution Reward System is to incentivize all Nodes to contribute towards building and developing the ecosystem, as well as allowing Nodes that do not receive a large share of votes to still earn a large amount of rewards for significant contributions to the IOST ecosystem.The following document lays out the contribution rewards mechanism and process for IOST Nodes. Any feedback and suggestions on the Contribution Reward System is welcome.Nodes Reward Pool OverviewThe total Nodes Reward Pool is 840M IOST, equivalent to 4% of the total IOST supply. It comprises ofEcosystem Reward Pool (420M, issued by quarter) andToken Issuance Reward Pool (420M, issued by day).Ecosystem Reward Pool includes quarterly-issued Contribution Rating Rewards (210M) and quarterly-issued Share of Votes Rewards (210M).Token Issuance Reward Pool includes daily-distributed Block Production Rewards and daily-distributed Share of Votes Rewards.Ecosystem Reward Pool TimelineDates for Q4 Contribution Rating Rewards:December 24th— December 31st: submissions open for Q4 node contribution reportsJanuary 1st — January 8th: report assessment and ranking by IOST/ICAC & Initial results releaseJanuary 9th: Dispute period & Final results releaseBefore March 30th: Finish the distribution of Contribution Rating RewardsShare of votes snapshots are taken daily, and rewards are based on the average share of votes received for the quarter.Contribution Assessment MethodNodes submit their contribution report each quarter, detailing the contributions they made to the ecosystem for that period and which contribution category is most relevant.These contribution reports are then assessed and ranked for each category starting from the most valuable contribution to the least. Based on these rankings, Nodes are split into Reward Tiers and then issued rewards.Contribution CategoriesNodes can submit reports for 1 of the 5 categories. The chosen category for each Node should be the most relevant one. If there are contributions made outside of this category, they should still be submitted as they will count towards the final ranking.Example: Two Dapp developers launch Dapps of equal value, but if one of the Dapps also create content to promote it, this Node will rank higher.The reward categories are as follows:Content creation and promotionDappsIntegrations (wallets,exchanges,explorers etc) & Technical SupportEvents / meetups / hackathonsCommunity buildingContribution Assessment per CategoryEach contribution report is assessed based on the following criteria for each category.1. Content Creation and PromotionCreating awareness and education about IOST to crypto and mainstream audiences is one of IOST’s most important objectives in order to grow and attract more users and developers. Quality of content is important, but even more so is the number of people this content reaches. Quality content produced should be placed where it can get a lot of exposure outside of the IOST community and shared via social, news and community channels.quality of content (accuracy, production quality)views / clicks / impressions / shares / commentsEnjoyability / watchability2. DappsValue to the ecosystem (e.g is it an interesting, useful novel Dapp, or a clone of an existing Dapp already on IOST)Daily active users (DAU)Daily transactions volume3. Integrations (wallets, exchanges, explorers etc) & Technical SupportValue to ecosystem (is it an interesting, useful novel integration, or a clone of an existing already)Downloads / VisitsDaily active users (DAU)Token volumeQuality and frequency of technical support4. Events / meetups / hackathonsQuality of event (content, topic, speakers etc)Number of attendeesPress / News coverage5. CommunitiesCommunity activity (e.g. airdrop and giveaway)Growth of membersIOST community support and engagementNumber of active usersContribution Assessment Submission FormatContribution reports should be submitted through the official report submission channel: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPMEach contribution activity should be specified in a numbered list with a clear description and addressing each assessment criteria. As much supporting and verifiable documentation should be included for each activity. Any activity which is not verifiable will not be included in the Node’s ranking.Contribution activities will only be considered in contribution assessments if they are accretive to the ecosystem. Example: Node A casting votes for Node B or Node A providing a specific service (such as marketing or technical) for Node B are not considered contributions given that these are commercial dealings between nodes only.Contribution activities should only cover the time period for each report (3 months). Example: A Dapp’s DAU should only report the increase during this 3 month period. Forward looking statements, such as plans for the next quarter, are not considered in contribution assessment.Contribution Tier RewardsNodes in each tier receive the same amount of reward regardless of category. The 210M Reward Pool based on contribution is divided between tiers in the following way:Each Node receives an equal share of their tiers rewards:Node Reward = Total Tier Reward / Number of Nodes in Tier.…………………………………………IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q4 2019 was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Indonesia, with a significant population of more than 267 million, is quite famous for its openness towards innovation and new opportunities. The country has seen exponential growth in the crypto market since 2014. According to Indodax (The Indonesia Digital Asset Exchange), the biggest and only licensed cryptocurrency exchange, as of September 2019, it gained 1.7 million registered users and more than 7 million dollars or Rp 100 billion worth of transaction each day. Comparing to its 100-year-old stock market, which has only around 1.3 million registered participants (according to Indonesia Central Securities Depository), the Indonesian crypto market has significant momentum and potential.BAPPEBTI Visited IOST Beijing Office For Exchanges And ExperienceBAPPEBTI (the Commodities and Futures Trading Regulatory Agency In Indonesia) was launched in 2005. It functions as the sole agency regulating different types of financial entities as well as its crypto market. The BAPPEBTI comes directly under the supervision of the Ministry of Finance and is run by an administrative board of members represented by industry experts nominated by the Indonesian Government.On Dec 13th, four representatives from BAPPEBTI, including Cakra Buana (Head of Administration Division), Mochd Yusuf Affandi (Head of the Transaction Monitoring Division) and Poppy Juliyanti (Head of Sub. Data and Information Technology Development Division) flew from Jakarta to Beijing and visited IOST Beijing office as their first stop in China.BAPPEBTI Invited IOST To Be Legally Traded In Indonesia And Perform As A Government ConsultantAfter a warm reception and an office tour, IOST CTO Terry and BAPPEBTI representatives had a two-hour meeting regarding the blockchain and crypto industry.

When being asked that if there have been any suspicious transactions on IOST, Terry answered no but admitted that one or two third-party DApps may have had problems. However, whenever that occurs, IOST would always communicate with the team and try to prevent the same problem from happening again.Insightful exchanges on regulation took a leading role in the meeting. BAPPEBTI officials shared that crypto-assets like Bitcoin can now be traded legally, authorized by regulation №5/2019. This regulation is designed to protect citizens who want to invest in crypto-assets and provide legal assurance. BAPPEBTI is now working to improve the process of evaluating and issuing licenses for exchanges and tokens that can legally operate in Indonesia. The process is likely to include a risk assessment, trading volume monitoring, and a requirement on paid-up capital minimum, etc. BAPPEBTI also invited IOST to apply to be listed on exchanges in Indonesia.At the end of the meeting, BAPPEBTI representatives expressed their recognition for IOST technology and its business module, and also their hope in future collaboration with IOST, where IOST can provide consulting services for the Indonesian government when conducting explorations in asset tokenization.……………………………………………BAPPEBTI Visited IOST Beijing Office, IOST Invited To Be Indonesian Government Consultant was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

5 December 2019 — BISS Exchange Update and FAQUPDATE: It is understood from some community members that unstaking and withdrawal functions have resumed at BISS Exchange. For users who wish to utilize other platforms for staking IOST, you may wish to try unstaking or withdrawing during this period.Note 1: The latest information regarding unstaking/withdrawal resuming at BISS is shared by users in the IOST community channels. It is applicable as at the time of writing, however there may still be risks that things change. The Foundation recommend that users take this chance to consider other staking platforms that give users full control over their token wallets.Note 2: The Foundation does not make any representations nor commitments on behalf of BISS Exchange, which is an independent third party outside of the Foundation’s control.For users who are unclear as to the situation at BISS Exchange, we have prepared a list of frequently asked questions to help you navigate the landscape.Frequently Asked QuestionsHow Does BISS interact with the IOST ecosystem?BISS is a node partner in the IOST ecosystem and at the launch of the mainnet, provided a voting platform to users to stake their IOST.BISS is founded by BMAN, a prominent crypto investor from China and founder of Metropolis Capital.IOST does not own BISS and has no influence or control over their operations, nor access to their trading system and backend.What happened to BISS?According to market sources, it is understood that BISS’ exchange service offerings to users are not aligned with the regulations in China. To safeguard user interests, operations at BISS were previously halted subject to a regulatory enquiry.

IOST x Fujimi Town | Blockchain Deployment In The Japanese Energy Market, Powered by IOSTIn Fujimi City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, IOST partnered up with EverySystem and ElDesign to launch a P2P electricity trading project on IOST, and to empower the energy industry.On 14th November 2019, along with over 5 media, the mayor of Fujimi Town, CEO of elDesign, Dr. Wada from EverSystem and IOST Co-founder and CTO, Terry announced the launch of the P2P Electricity Trading Project at a press conference in Fujimi Town.The mayor of Fujimi, Mr. Natori, gave a speech at the press conference. He points out that the commercialization of this PoC project will increase the employment rate and revitalize the region. Locals can expect this project in Feb 2020. It is said that the town-operated solar power generator Fujimi Mega Solar plans to participate in the project as a seller.Just as pointed out by the mayor, this IOST-powered project has profound meaning for all local people and energy companies. Many well-known Japanese media reported on this event.Read more:IOST x Fujimi Town | Blockchain Deployment In The Japanese Energy Market, Powered by IOST2. IOST Co-founder Terry Attended Staking Star Event On InvitationOn Nov 16, IOST Co-founder Terry attended the round table discussion themed the Past, Present, and Future Of Staking Industry, jointly held by Standard Consensus and CoinTime.Terry shared his insights through a speech: It has been less than a year since the booming of Staking economy at the beginning of 2019, and PoS projects only represent less than 10% of the whole market capital now. This number seems low but it shows another picture when you take time into consideration. Meanwhile, PoW mining gains profits through lower-than-normal electricity fee which comes with great risks. But PoS-based Staking economy can be participated by anyone without having to bear high risks. A dialectical approach needs to be taken when comparing the two. From a long-term perspective, neither PoS nor PoW consensus mechanism is the best option. IOST will continue to explore in the underlying structure, to find out the most optimal solution.3. IOST Long-Term Airdrop Program — October LOL Airdrop CompleteBased off snapshots of all voters’ accounts throughout the mainnet voting between October 1 to October 31, IOST has issued a total of 10,500,000 LOL tokens as airdrop to our loyal holders.IOST issues airdrop rewards based on on-chain data and has finished distribution to all staking pools and voting platforms.

IOST x GUILD | Decentralize...

IOST x GUILD | Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) Service “GUILD” — Bringing All Organizations Online!Despite its failure in the first international online voting due to programming errors, the DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization) opened the gate to a new module of governance realized by blockchain technology. According to Gartner, a global research and advisory firm providing information, advice, and tools for businesses, DAO is one of the five major technology development trends in 2019, as well as a key technology that businesses can consider. In IOST ecosystem, the establishment and operation of IOST Global Alliance (IGA) and IOST Core Arbitration Community (ICAC) created a solid foundation for DAO.The Foundation is pleased to announced that we have reached an exciting partnership with PHI. The Japanese company is developing GUILD, a coordinated working platform based on IOST. Meanwhile, IOST co-founder Terry will work as PHI’s advisor to provide technical support.PHI website:PHIGUILD — A Coordinated Working Platform Based On IOSTThis partnership with PHI is IOST’s foray in DAO exploration. PHI believes that despite significant economic growth, little to none innovation has been created in terms of ownership and governance models in the past century. Most businesses are still keeping the traditional hierarchical structure centering control and efficiency, which was not able to stop the adverse effects brought about by the financial crisis in 2008. Throughout the past few decades, technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace and changing all aspects of our lives. However, the collective decision-making process has not been changed much, which won’t be able to satisfy the current needs.GUILD will take advantage of blockchain technology to solve pain points emerged from the current workflow and coordination mechanism, as well as assist the online working coordination within an organization.PHI will design the project-related workflow on GUILD and plans to form a virtual organization where everything, from design to development, can be done online. Through migrating all workflow and systems online, GUILD will review the organization’s working style, in order to significantly increase efficiency, productivity, and motivation. While developing and operating such a DAO toolkit, GUILD aims to replace traditional companies’ working style.“GUILD” Supports 5 Features To Update The OrganizationThe whole organization has a sense of organizational change.Decentralization of decision-making power within an organization.Open information.Communication.Refinement of purpose and vision sharing.Takashi Oka, CEO — PHI Inc. commented:“I like the company. I can do anything for this company.”“In the world today, I think people who are enjoying work are really only a few happy people. What if people can change their jobs or aims for freelance because they do not like their companies? I think only few people can make such a decision. I am convinced that the company will always be working towards one goal instead of putting profit first.”An Evolution In Governance ModelsRonald Coase points out in The Nature Of The Firm that if the market is very efficient in resource allocation, why do firms still exist? He follows to explain: although the market is able to efficiently allocate resource according to the prices, organizations are more suitable for some economic activities due to the existence of trading cost. Blockchain, especially DAO, can increase trading efficiency while realizing coordination in a decentralized way. IOST hopes to further exploit the advantage of DAO with GUILD in the near future.………………………………………..IOST x GUILD | Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) Service “GUILD” — Bringing All… was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

BISS Exchange Update and FAQ

An update for BISS users who are experiencing issues on the BISS platform.Recently, BISS users have been facing withdrawal issues on BISS exchange. To provide an update for users, we have prepared this FAQ to assist IOST users who are affected by this change in understanding and navigating the current landscape.Frequently Asked QuestionsWhere does BISS sit in the IOST ecosystem?BISS is a node partner in the IOST ecosystem and at the launch of the mainnet, provided a voting platform to users to stake their IOST. BISS is founded by BMAN, a crypto investor and founder of Metropolis Capital. IOST does not own BISS and has no influence or control over their operations, nor access to their trading system and backend.What happened to BISS?According to market sources, it is understood that BISS’ operations have been halted following an enquiry by China’s regulatory authorities around its services offered to users, which may not be aligned with capital controls regulations in China. To safeguard user interests, operations at BISS are halted while the authorities look into the matter. It is understood that BISS is currently cooperating fully with the authorities in the enquiry.Are my funds that are held in BISS still safe?According to market sources, it is understood that users’ funds are safe in BISS given that BISS, in its role as the exchange, is simply acting as the custody for user funds and the ownership and asset rights still belong to the respective users. The enquiry by the authorities are specific to the company’s offerings, and not related to user deposits. It is expected that users will be able to access their funds in due course once the enquiry is completed.How will this affect me as a user on BISS?At the moment, all trading and withdrawals are paused. Once the enquiry is completed, the next steps will be announced. The date of completion for the enquiry has yet to be announced. The Foundation is tracking all updates relating to BISS closely and will aim to inform all our users who use BISS promptly should there be any material change in the situation.What can I do to have more control over my assets in the future?As the popular saying goes — “Not your keys, not your tokens”. Following the mainnet launch, the Foundation had shared various asset management solutions (besides BISS) with our community to manage/vote/access their IOST tokens, such as using iWallet, TokenPocket or PureWallet. We recommend that users create and stake directly through their IOST mainnet account, which gives them full control over their assets.

IOST’s Progress In Complian...

IOST Powers Forward In Raising Compliance Standards In Accordance With Japanese Blockchain RegulationsWith the advancement of compliance in digital assets, many countries and regions have released related regulations and guidelines. As one of the most mature blockchain markets, Japan is one of the earliest countries to regulate the blockchain industry and provide consumer assurance and protection.In May 25, 2016, the amended Act on Settlement of Funds was passed and took effect on April 1st 2017. In order to comply with Japanese laws, IOST has been actively encouraging DApp development teams to build valuable DApps and working with casino DApps teams for solutions since Sep 2019.For End UsersIOST respects rules and regulations in every market. We have informed every developer of casino DApps to block IPs of users from China and Japan. IOST works closely with governments and shall always respect the boundaries and regulations for its community.DApp CategoriesUp until Oct 21, 2019, there were 49 DApps developed on IOST mainnet, with 11 of which needed improvement in compliance, accounting for less than one-fourth of all IOST DApps. The low proportion was due to the fact that IOST never encouraged developers to construct casino DApps, while providing extra support and assistance for quality DApps, in order to promote the development of DApps.Open-Source Platform ManagementAs an open-source platform, IOST public blockchain allows any developer to build upon it. Hence, the IOST Foundation does not interfere in the development of any DApp. However, the Foundation communicates with developers on a regular basis, offering suggestions regarding long-term operations and the construction of a healthy DApp ecosystem.Relationships With DApp TeamsIOST strives to build a decentralized platform and it does not intervene directly in the commercialization of DApp products. On the contrary, IOST communicated with teams of casino DApps and provided constructive advice on building a healthier IOST DApp ecosystem in collaboration.IOST DApp EcosystemIOST DApp ecosystem obtained radical improvement in its quality, thanks to the Foundation’s efforts. Within two months, the statistics of non-casino DApps (three major measures: DAU, Transactions, and trading volume) has increased rapidly to form the majority (above 50%) of each measure.According to data on DAppRadar.com, casino DApps now account for less than 21% of all DApps in 7-day DAU, transactions and trading volume. This means that in DApp ecosystem, the proportion of casino DApps is relatively low compared to the activity of non-casino Dapps.Establishing Industry Standards To Promote The Compliance In DApp IndustryIOST has already stood out among public chains with its strong compliance position and focus on valuable Dapps outside of casino gaming. IOST also take an active role in the development of its DApp ecosystem and constantly encourage developers to build quality games.In collaboration with traditional game publishers, IOST launched a series of featured games, including Xianjian 5 and IOST Legend. The latter led IOST into a new era of DApp ecosystem: bringing traditional games users to on-chain games, and offering optimal gaming experience to users while giving them high rewards. Meanwhile, Xianjian 5 represents a milestone in the combination of game and blockchain.IOST has also attracted a great number of developers with its Featured DApps Program to build on IOST mainnet, and launched a number of quality games: CryptoNinja, Herorats, XPET, IOST Crypto Sanguo, and Eternal Fafnir. CryptoNinja fully demonstrates the value of blockchain technology being the first full on-chain DApp; Herorats combines games with public welfare to increase the value of games; XPET explores a different way of DApps with its new module of cross-chain game asset authenticity.IOST shall continue to establish leading industry standards and embrace compliance, to promote the legal development of DApp ecosystem.As an open-source platform, IOST will continue to improve the DApp ecosystem through communication with developers and support for quality DApps, while ensuring the maximum level of decentralization of the mainnet:The amount of casino DApps is now below 20% of all DApps.Chinese and Japenese IPs are blocked from casino DApps.DAU, transactions, transaction volume and other measures of casino DApps accounts for less than 21% of the whole ecosystemAddress the risks of casino DApps in community announcements and daily notifications, to warn users of the risks of asset loss and addiction.IOST enhances collaborations with other quality DApp teams by providing resources and stops the promotion of sensitive content.Compared to Ethereum and multiple other mainstream public chains, IOST has obtained the highest level of compliance in DApp ecosystem, which will be a major boost for IOST in its bid to access the Japanese blockchain market.IOST believes that its efforts in compliance will become a good example in the industry. A strong level of compliance is critical for unleashing the potential of blockchain and promoting its mass adoption, and to share the benefits of blockchain technology with the general public.……………………………………………….IOST’s Progress In Compliance With Japenese Blockchain Regulations was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Initial Results for IOST Q3...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q3 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.20 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1,323,288 IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeAssessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from October 8th to October 15th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers has been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that where similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q1 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each nodes account. For disputes please contact your regional contact (CN, JP, KR or INTL) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 23:59 October 23 (GMT+8).Final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Wednesday, October 23.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by late November, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith very high potential rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to highly incentive nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative. Also, keep an eye on your Node discussion groups for requests for support in several upcoming initiatives run by the core team, these count to your contributions too!To become a node, join the IOST ecosystem and start earning rewards please check out the Servi & Partner Node Registration Guide.……………………………………………Initial Results for IOST Q3 Contribution Rankings and Rewards was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Can You Solve Interoperabil...

It has always been the Foundation’s policy to work closely with government agencies and regulatory bodies to develop real-world solutions and intellectual property that drives technological innovation.In Singapore, IOST has been working closely with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) to leverage their network in developing a seamless data bridge for IOST where information, transactions and asset values can be easily transferred between IOST and Ethereum. This interoperability solution should ideally be able to expand to other blockchains such as EOS, Stellar, Tron and more in the next phase of development.Problem Statement: How Can IOST Be Interoperable With Ethereum and Other Blockchains?Currently, users face issues of having their assets being limited to the blockchain that the asset is created on. If we are able to solve for interoperability, it means that we are able to directly transfer information, transactions and asset values directly between IOST and other blockchains, letting users have true freedom and ownership of their digital assets.This cross-chain transfer of information and value is especially meaningful for a public blockchain project like IOST. User asset transfer will be safer and no longer need to rely on centralised exchanges, and cross-chain capabilities can increase the liquidity and usability of digital assets.How might we create a bridge between platforms, so that an application on IOST can interact with data on Ethereum, in a way that is seamless, secure and interoperable?IMDA, together with Lawrence Lim, Head of International Development at IOST, has produced a video to help potential problem solvers learn more about the problem statement:https://medium.com/media/aca0f5108e41afb5131cc942388db646/hrefThe Ideal Interoperability SolutionFor this Challenge, we are looking for a Proof-of-Concept (POC) solution that can deliver an efficient bridge between IOST and Ethereum, so that the two systems can effectively function as seamless network.The solution should:Ensure consensus between transacting partners on different blockchain platforms (IOST and Ethereum);Enable the seamless flow of information between both platforms in both directions;Ensure security of the transaction between platforms and clearly state who bears security risks (if any);From a user perspective, enable transactions between the platforms that feel seamless, easy and require little to no training on the user’s part.The preferred solution will be implemented directly within IOST’s codebase (open source, JavaScript), and it must not degrade IOST’s overall performance, including our high Transactions Per Second (TPS) rate.If a solution implemented within IOST’s code is not possible, a gateway solution can be considered if it meets the above criteria. While the scope of this POC is focused on interoperability between IOST and Ethereum, solutions that can potentially create interoperability with other blockchain platforms (such as EOS, Stellar, Tron) in the future will be considered favourably.What’s In It For You? Attractive Prizes For Problem Solvers!Problem solvers who are able to devise a solution that is conceptually sound and executable stand to receive:SGD 35,000 of prize money for each winner of this challenge;Potential to co-develop solution with IOST development team and joint go-to-market opportunities with IOST;Successful solutions that can bring value to their platform will have the opportunity to receive investment from IOST USD 50m fund.The Open Innovation Platform — Grab The Challenge Brief and Submit Your SolutionProblem Solvers can come from any country (no geographical or nationality restrictions) and you can submit your solution on the Open Innovation Platform managed by IMDA and KPMG Digital Village. Should your solution be chosen, the Proof of Concept solution will need to be demonstrated in Singapore.More details on this Challenge can also be found in the Challenge Brief posted on the Open Innovation Platform. Submissions will close on 4 October 2019, so hurry up!Your solution will be jointly assessed by IMDA, KPMG and IOST and subject to the quality of submissions, winner(s) will be picked to progress into the next rounds of discussions and solution development.Join the IOST Community!Just two months after the launch of mainnet, IOST is now one of the Big 4 Public Chains for DApps alongside Ethereum, EOS and Tron.

IOST Nodes — Contributions ...

IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q3 2019Introduction to the Contribution Reward SystemThe objective of the Contribution Reward System is to incentivize all Nodes to contribute towards building and developing the ecosystem, as well as allowing Nodes that do not receive a large share of votes to still earn a large amount of rewards for significant contributions to the IOST ecosystem.The following document lays out the contribution rewards mechanism and process for IOST Nodes. Any feedback and suggestions on the Contribution Reward System is welcome.Nodes Reward Pool OverviewThe total Nodes Reward Pool is 840M IOST, equivalent to 4% of the total IOST supply. It comprises ofEcosystem Reward Pool (420M, issued by quarter) andToken Issuance Reward Pool (420M, issued by day).Ecosystem Reward Pool includes quarterly-issued Contribution Rating Rewards (210M) and quarterly-issued Share of Votes Rewards (210M).Token Issuance Reward Pool includes daily-distributed Block Production Rewards and daily-distributed Share of Votes Rewards.Ecosystem Reward Pool TimelineDates for Q3 Contribution Rating Rewards:September 23rd— September 30th: submissions open for Q3 node contribution reportsOctober 1st — October 14th (Due to China’s National Holiday): report assessment and ranking by IOST/ICAC & Initial results releaseOctober 15th — October 21st: Dispute period & Final results releaseBefore November 30th: Finish the distribution of Contribution Rating RewardsShare of votes snapshots are taken daily, and rewards are based on the average share of votes received for the quarter.Contribution Assessment MethodNodes submit their contribution report each quarter, detailing the contributions they made to the ecosystem for that period and which contribution category is most relevant.These contribution reports are then assessed and ranked for each category starting from the most valuable contribution to the least. Based on these rankings, Nodes are split into Reward Tiers and then issued rewards.Contribution CategoriesNodes can submit reports for 1 of the 5 categories. The chosen category for each Node should be the most relevant one. If there are contributions made outside of this category, they should still be submitted as they will count towards the final ranking.Example: Two Dapp developers launch Dapps of equal value, but if one of the Dapps also create content to promote it, this Node will rank higher.The reward categories are as follows:Content creation and promotionDappsIntegrations (wallets,exchanges,explorers etc) & Technical SupportEvents / meetups / hackathonsCommunity buildingContribution Assessment per CategoryEach contribution report is assessed based on the following criteria for each category.1. Content Creation and PromotionCreating awareness and education about IOST to crypto and mainstream audiences is one of IOST’s most important objectives in order to grow and attract more users and developers. Quality of content is important, but even more so is the number of people this content reaches. Quality content produced should be placed where it can get a lot of exposure outside of the IOST community and shared via social, news and community channels.quality of content (accuracy, production quality)views / clicks / impressions / shares / commentsEnjoyability / watchability2. DappsValue to the ecosystem (e.g is it an interesting, useful novel Dapp, or a clone of an existing Dapp already on IOST)Daily active users (DAU)Daily transactions volume3. Integrations (wallets, exchanges, explorers etc) & Technical SupportValue to ecosystem (is it an interesting, useful novel integration, or a clone of an existing already)Downloads / VisitsDaily active users (DAU)Token volumeQuality and frequency of technical support4. Events / meetups / hackathonsQuality of event (content, topic, speakers etc)Number of attendeesPress / News coverage5. CommunitiesCommunity activity (e.g. airdrop and giveaway)Growth of membersIOST community support and engagementNumber of active usersContribution Assessment Submission FormatContribution reports should be submitted through the official report submission channel: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPMEach contribution activity should be specified in a numbered list with a clear description and addressing each assessment criteria. As much supporting and verifiable documentation should be included for each activity. Any activity which is not verifiable will not be included in the Node’s ranking.Contribution activities will only be considered in contribution assessments if they are accretive to the ecosystem. Example: Node A casting votes for Node B or Node A providing a specific service (such as marketing or technical) for Node B are not considered contributions given that these are commercial dealings between nodes only.Contribution activities should only cover the time period for each report (3 months). Example: A Dapp’s DAU should only report the increase during this 3 month period. Forward looking statements, such as plans for the next quarter, are not considered in contribution assessment.Contribution Tier RewardsNodes in each tier receive the same amount of reward regardless of category. The 210M Reward Pool based on contribution is divided between tiers in the following way:Each Node receives an equal share of their tiers rewards:Node Reward = Total Tier Reward / Number of Nodes in Tier.…………………………………IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q3 2019 was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Community members can now explore this classic game adapted from real Chinese history as the first players on the game.Crypto Sanguo official website: www.sanguo.pkFive Game Sections In Crypto SanguoStory Mode: By going through the stories inspired by the real history, players can battle with different NPCs, and equip their heroes to beat enemies and win SGT and resources.Marketplace: Here, players can buy newly added heroes in auctions; or trade with other players.Duel: Players can battle against each other to snatch SGT.Daily Treasure: Hold or burn SGT here to get dividends.Rankings: Check your battle and asset rankings here.The game is browser-based, which means as long as you have the IOST Wallet installed, you can access it from any PC or mobile device.Step-By-Step Tutorial For Beginnersa) Open the game with Token Pocket.b) Buy 3 heroes from the Marketplace. As a beginner, we recommend that you go for heroes whose “Attack” attributes are high, like Zhang Fei, Guan Yu, or Dian Wei.3) At the “Me” section, click “Teams” in the top-right corner, to config your hero formation.4) In story mode, select stage one “Yellow Turban Rebellion”, select the first battle location “Da Xing Shan” and choose the first battle to start. Now the battle shall begin!5) The battle screen is as below:If you are playing the game for the first time, it may take some time to load. Please be patient, it will load much faster next time.6) Receive rewards if you win:7) The second battle of “Da Xing Shan” is already unlocked, however, please do not try it yet, because the enemies there are tougher.If you repeat the “1st Battle” for 5 times, you will receive 100 SGT. With the proceeds, you can upgrade one of your three heroes to level 2 (Click “Me” and “Heroes”).8)If you receive a warning that your heroes are out of energy, in the same screen, you can purchase energy with IOST. If you don’t want to spend IOST, you can also wait for the energy to recover at the pace of 1 point per hour.9) After you have conquered enough battles, it’s a good idea to attack other players in the “Duel” mode. Every 12 hours, you can defeat someone to snatch 5% of their SGT; and every time you are defeated, you are safe from other players’ attacks in the next 24 hours.Alright, now you are good to go! We didn’t cover topics like synthesizing equipment or exchanging NFTs, but you will easily figure it out by yourself.Crypto Sanguo — Battle SystemCurrently, every hero has the following attributes:- HP: How much health points the hero has.- Attack: How much damage the hero can inflict.- Intelligence: How effective the hero can use his special skill.- Agility: How fast and frequent the hero can attack or use his special skill.- Luck: The chance of getting more SGT or items after winning the battle.Every hero has a special skill, which can be viewed in the “Market” page.What’s more, by wearing equipment, heroes can gain additional points of the above attributes. In the future, the heroes will also receive additional special skills if some rare items are equipped.Currently, equipment is classified into 3 kinds: weapons, armors, accessories. And every hero has one slot for each of the 3 kinds.If you have more questions about the game, please visit www.sanguo.pk , or send an email to contact@sanguo.pk.Happy gaming!……………………………………………..Crypto Sanguo Has Officially Launched Today! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Strengthens Strategic ...

Earlier this month, the IOST Foundation released our Back To The Moon Plan which proposes numerous upgrades to the IOST Mainnet. With this in mind, one of the key areas of upgrade is to develop cross-chain interoperability solutions that can allow stable transfers of assets and values from other blockchains to IOST.This will benefit IOST and our entire ecosystem if we are able to drive net inflows of digital assets with tangible and real value from other blockchains can be seamlessly brought over to exist as assets on IOST.IOST Forges Innovation Partnership With IMDA, The Government Body Regulating Infocomm and Media In SingaporeIt has always been the Foundation’s policy to work closely with government agencies and regulatory bodies to develop real-world solutions and intellectual property that drives technological innovation.In Singapore, IOST has been working closely with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) to leverage their network in developing a seamless data bridge for IOST where information, transactions and asset values can be easily transferred between IOST and Ethereum. This interoperability solution is expected to expand to other blockchains such as EOS, Stellar, Tron and more in the next phase of development.We are happy to share that this will be done via the Open Innovation Platform (OIP), which is oversee and backed by IMDA, that connects directly with of over 3,000 top-quality problem solver teams.For this Innovation Call, IMDA supports IOST and other top global MNCs such as Nippon Koei, Infineon Technologies and YCH Group in developing progressive, cutting edge technology. Other notable global firms in past Innovation Calls include BMW, Ubisoft, Singapore Airlines, DHL, Sompo Insurance and Procter and Gamble.This Open Innovation Platform is powered by KPMG Digital Village, which is also working closely with the IOST Foundation in advancing the development of blockchain technology.Close Collaboration with Enterprise Singapore To Develop Blockchain Ecosystem ContinuesEarlier this year, IOST had announced our partnership with Enterprise Singapore via Hashed Venture Labs, a blockchain incubator backed by IOST.Enterprise Singapore is the government agency championing enterprise development and supports the growth of Singapore as a hub for global trading and innovative tech startups.The collaboration has extended to Enterprise Singapore’s flagship Slingshot 2019 Competition where Head of Business Development, Lawrence Lim, sits as a competition judge alongside senior executives from Google, Amazon Web Services, PayPal, Microsoft, BP, ConocoPhilips, CapGemini, General Electric, GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, and other MNCs.SlingShot 2019 Global LaunchIn addition, the Foundation is happy to share that we have successfully built a strong pipeline of determined, enthusiastic blockchain founders whom we are excited to work closely with to support.The first startup from Hashed Venture Labs has successfully received the Startup SG Founder Grant from Enterprise Singapore, and we are looking forward to supporting more successful applicants. Together with Enterprise Singapore, we are excited to on-board high potential blockchain startups that can add value to the IOST ecosystem and at the same time, cement Singapore’s position as the leading global blockchain hub.Join the IOST Community!Since less than two month after the launch of mainnet, IOST has officially become one of the Big 4 Public Chains for DApps alongside Ethereum, EOS and Tron.

International Growth Series...

With Vietnam having one of the most active crypto user base globally with over 2 million traders and investors, it has long been known as one of the most promising crypto markets in the world with rapidly growing crypto penetration. This strong growth is in part down to three key factors: (a) legacy banking infrastructure which creates an opportunity for new financial technology to create widespread change, (b) a volatile domestic currency which creates instability in the purchasing power and (c) its huge population of young, tech-savvy users who have seamlessly adopted cryptocurrency and blockchain technology as the future of money.IOST Powers Into Vietnam — Strikes Partnerships and Attracts Strong Community InterestTo capitalize on this exciting market opportunity, the IOST Foundation has set our sights on Vietnam being one of our key growth markets for 2019/20.

Infinito x IOST AMA: “Perfe...

Infinito x IOST AMA: “Perfect Blockchain Experience And Mass Adoption” — Youtube Replay Available!On August 8th, 2019, Infinito and IOST team hosted the first joint AMA on Youtube LIVE to celebrate our official partnership. During the 45 minutes of this AMA, Infinito’s Business Director, Mr. Fedor Bushlanov, Marketing Director, Ms. Ellena Ki and IOST’s Marketing Director, Mr. Mei took turns to answer various questions from the crypto community on the topic: “Perfect Blockchain Experience And Mass Adoption”.At the end of the AMA, 2 best questions of the day submitted by users with Telegram IDs @hoang9120 and @jame_ng123 was chosen by Mr. Mei to receive $100 in IOST token each!Two winners for Infinito’s lucky draw was also selected on August 9th with users @MalaMala333 and @Zombie Channel receiving $100 in INFT token each.View the full AMA via Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=od13ubmeYEY&t=1447sBelow is a text summary of the AMA. Thank you and please enjoy!Questions Answered LIVE in the AMAQ1: Can you tell us about the partnership between Infinito and IOST and your current and future plans for the community?Ellena: Sure. At Infinito, we always look to expand our Ecosystem by integrating with leading players in the blockchain industry, whether they are blockchain platforms or DApp/tech providers. Our partnership goal with IOST is to bring global Infinito users access to all the great benefits IOST infrastructure has to offer such as IOST token, DApps, asset management, staking rewards, & more — on top of our existing ecosystem benefits!Q2: Can you give us an update on how has things going since IOST Token Mainnet?Mei: Before officially launching the Mainnet, we already created a rough structure of IOST ecosystem, which includes wallets, exchanges, DApps, development tools etc.We started from launching node partner program and received support from blockchain teams, investors, developer, media etc from worldwide. Meanwhile we began to launch a series of plans for attracting more DApp developers and help those DApps developed on IOST to grow.During the second half of this year, we saw IOST gained more and more competitive advantages in the staking economy. This is thanks to IOST’s Proof-of-Believability consensus mechanism, which differentiates us from other blockchain projects by making IOST more decentralized and flexible. Currently IOST is ranked the first on many staking platforms.Tiffany: Thank you, Ellena and Mei, for your answer. I bet our viewers are eager to see the questions they have submitted so let’s get started with the Google form questions. The first question is for Fedor.Q3: How does Infinito Ecosystem contributes to globalization and mass adoption of blockchain apps?Fedor: For app usage, we provide Infinito App Square with DApps of all kinds of categories — exchange, finance, games, utility, compliance, etc — accessible right inside Infinito Wallet app. It has a friendly interface for all users to enjoy blockchain applications conveniently. This DApp store is also where developers can launch their apps to get access to massive global community. DApp creators can also utilize our Infinito Blockchain Platform with ready-made modules & APIs to efficiently build & deliver their innovations to the market. With the introduction of our official utility token, INFT, we can greatly incentivize both users & developers/businesses to adopt blockchain tech through using as well as developing assets & applications.Additionally, Infinito also actively take part in worldwide events to promote blockchain adoption, both as advocates of blockchain technology via insight sharing panels as well as mentors to help future engineers develop with blockchain through hackathons.Q4: What is IOST’s plan for real-world applications? How sustainable is the IOST network?Mei: As IOST aims to have B2C blockchain application developed on our platform, we are focusing on bringing more real applications to users, instead of directly competing with consortium chain projects on B2B business. As a startup, we are more flexible and more experienced in dealing with customers and users.Developing DApps, DeFi tools and the staking economy can help us to bring more direct benefits to IOST’s communities. Ensuring a quick and stable increase of mainnet users is of vital importance for a blockchain project. No business model could be realized without enough amount of users.For gaining a sustainable growth, at this initial stage of blockchain industry, we would like to gain massive users to ensure that the mainnet ecosystem is active enough to support all kinds of applications. We are developing tools and incubating platforms such as DApp gaming platforms to lower the barrier of users who want to get access to DApps or other blockchain products on IOST.Q5: Will Infinito support all the cryptocurrencies around the world and have native exchange features so users can easily swap any coins or tokens?Fedor: It is our dream to be able to support ALL the cryptocurrencies around the world! Right now, our team prioritizes the most popular cryptos and blockchain platforms on the market as they have the greatest adoption rates. We’re supporting 13 blockchains thus over 2,000 decentralized assets, and we’re always aiming for more!Regarding a native exchange, it is in our plan for this year as a major feature to bring about a seamless experience for users! Our team is working on this function for Infinito Wallet which will also provide a wide selection of “best-rates”, aggregated from ecosystem exchange partners. Currently, we already have a number of integrated DEX partners such as Changelly, Bancor, Totle, Kyber Network, etc and we’d like to cooperate with them to develop this valuable feature.Q6: What measures does IOST take to overcome major competitors such as ETH, EOS, ZIL, and TRON?Mei: IOST is much younger than these projects, we need to admit that the first mover advantage can be found in these projects. However, IOST also avoided many mistakes that these previous projects have made.In general, we are using simple ways with low cost, establishing long term collaborations with IOST’s partners, to gain a stable growth of IOST’s ecosystem. Our tactics can be: 1. Using more efficient ways to achieve the things that former projects did before 2.Creating new ways to bring new users.Many projects used to invest a lot on developing their own development tools, organizing hackathons and bounties for developing its mainnet ecosystem. Some of them were not working with enough partners at their initial stage. This could result in lack of users and reliable business models on their mainnets.However, IOST chose a more efficient way to develop its ecosystem. For example, we first invited teams who made good performance on EOS, ETH, Tron to migrate their DApps on IOST. And now we are working with more professional gaming teams and companies on helping them to develop those more classical games with higher quality on blockchain.Q7: There are so many strong crypto wallets on the market such as Trust Wallet, Midas. As users tend to lean towards products that they are familiar with, what are the advantages of Infinito Wallet compare to the rest?Ellena: Indeed, the crypto wallet market right now is more competitive than ever, which is why our team is continuously working to meet and exceed the demands of the community. We’re continually expanding the functionality of Infinito Wallet via in-house engineering as well as collaborating with industry-leading tech providers. We work with DApp builders and blockchain builders to not only bring more innovative features to our wallet but also make its user experience as seamless as possible. We believe that the versatility & great usability of our product makes it stand out from the rest.Q8: How do both Projects plan to enable blockchain adoption in daily life to transactions in the Commerce online and offline?Mei: For IOST, payment can be one of the applications that mainnet has. We are working with crowdfunding platforms, charity organizations, art galleries, etc. Their users now can use IOST as a payment method.Ellena: We are releasing INFT Token and InfinitoPAY. A first of its kind payment platform that is compatible with both fiat and cryptocurrency with advance payment feature to let users easily make, receive and schedule payments anytime, anywhere.At the same time, our Universal Infinito Wallet is also welcoming hardware wallet feature, Sugi NFC card. This lets you conveniently pay for daily needs with your crypto funds, similar to how you are using an everyday credit/ debit card.We hope to announce these new developments to you soon!Q9: With the mission of promoting and applying Blockchain technology. Are Blockchain start-ups one of the objects that Infinito aims for? If so, what will Infinito support them?Fedor: Yes, we believe that blockchain startups are also one of the key drivers of blockchain innovation, which is why we are always open to collaboration opportunities. However, a major difficulty they usually face is user base building — how to attract consumers to their little-known products.Infinito has been providing our Infinito App Square as the portal for DApps to reach out to global user communities. With the introduction of our official utility token, INFT, we will also launch a “DApp incubation” program where startups & independent developers are funded by the community for creating high-quality applications that are well-rated by users.Q10: How do you think, generally, did the market accept an absolutely new consensus algorithm by IOST: Proof-of-Believability?Mei: Yes, and very well.PoB is similar to PoS but with a series of improvements. In comparison with DPoS and other PoS projects, IOST can be more decentralized with more reasonable allocation of mainnet resources.In IOST’s consensus, every node partner has equal possibility of producing blocks. Although some of the teams are not technical enough to become a real block producer who can run servers, many of them became node partners through voting, as we lower the standard of being a node partner.Meanwhile IOST’s mainnet resources can be cheaper and avoid price manipulations. Both users and developers could find they cost not much on running a DApp or launch transactions on IOST.Apart from that, IOST’s node partner ecosystem helped us to gain help from blockchainers worldwide, every quarter these node partners submit their contribution reports and in turn they can get rewarded by IOST foundation. We can even find that there are new projects who are following us on building similar PoS mechanisms, but we will move forward and faster.Q11: Infinito solve the big challenges for “Blockchain Adoption”. What benefit does it have for the Infinito ecosystem? What about users who understand Blockchain technology promoted by Infinito but use other ecosystems?Ellena: By solving the big challenges for blockchain adoption, we help more people realize and benefit from this technology through our Infinito Ecosystem either via using its products or developing applications. In return, of course, our product ecosystem can gain more users and partners, which make it become stronger so that it can promote adoption more effectively.If the user already adopts blockchain through a network ecosystem, I believe they will still find Infinito Ecosystem interesting as we support multiple blockchains! As for users of other product ecosystems, we always try our best to make Infinito ecosystem more inclusive & competitive by having the best, most demanded utility & services.Q12: What is your future plan to make IOST one of the top projects in Coinmarketcap?Mei: Apart from sharing updates of Mainnet’s progress, I think the community may be more interested in ranking on CoinMarketCap. A good ranking can help the project get more exposures, also can be a benchmark to evaluate our progress in a certain period. But the project itself cannot have direct interference on price or market cap.Q13: Can you explain how Infinito token works in your platform and your economic model?Fedor: Infinito Ecosystem is open for everyone to join including users, applications, services, and developers. We want to provide benefits to our members and give them incentives to collaborate and grow our Ecosystem together. We want our user community to be able to give feedback to services and business inside the Ecosystem and help us understands how to make it better for everyone.Infinito Token (INFT) will be the fuel of our payment platform, InfinitoPAY with advanced financial services that have not yet existed in the world of cryptocurrency such as automatic currency conversion so you can easily pay with any crypto of your choice. Infinito PAY will also allow users to subscribe for periodic or automatic payments which are a big convenience for both users and business.With InfinitoPAY and Infinito Token, our Ecosystem will be the pioneer in implementing advanced financial services that users enjoy very much.Q14: Can we stake our IOST token within Infinito wallet?Fedor: Definitely possible. Staking features of tokens and coins is what we are looking forward to. We also mention that users can stake INFT Token and open access to Premium functions and earn extra income. And staking IOST Tokens will open access to all the beneficial features that IOST blockchain designed in their model. Infinito is looking forward to supporting IOST token staking model as well as other coins and we hope the community can tell us what you would like to see!……………………………………………….Infinito x IOST AMA: “Perfect Blockchain Experience And Mass Adoption” — Youtube Replay Available! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

What Exactly Is EMOGI Network?

The EMOGI network builds the framework for censorship-resistant distribution of media. To effectively spread information in the modern economy, people, journalists and businesses are required to work with centralized, often agenda-driven intermediaries. These are the media giants of the world — both government-sponsored and monopolistic companies operating walled-garden content ecosystems. These platforms make the rules and have the power to anoint winners, naturally incentivizing cronyism. Through effectively deployed blockchain technology and a thoughtfully-designed incentive structure, the EMOGI network is a vehicle to eliminate the rent-seeking intermediaries standing between the people and the truth.The EMOGI network is designed as an open and permissionless system with proof-of-stake validation and rewards. In short, anyone can participate, and economic outcomes are determined by the marketplace. The medium of exchange in this marketplace is the EMOGI token, a highly liquid unit of account designed to incentivize good behavior from all marketplace participants. Through the team’s consumer-facing products Berminal and Bermi, EMOGI is already one of the widest distributed utility tokens in the world — as millions of users are acquainted with EMOGI tokens as a medium of exchange on the two platforms.The marketplace is designed for three types of participants: content creators, content validators, and consumers — each playing a critical role. Creators have media they want to spread — theoretically anything including news, videos, podcasts or press releases. They put out a bid to promote their media and attach EMOGI tokens as a bounty for distribution or make available for direct purchase. The content validators, elected by the community, are tasked with picking the content they want to disseminate to their audiences. If a validator accepts the terms proposed by the creator, the validator collects a bounty or pays the fee and disseminates the message on behalf of the content creator. Validators theoretically have the option to share revenue with their audience, and consumers can theoretically purchase premium data or information directly from creators. Many dApps can be built on top of the protocol to address additional use cases and consumer demand.As the ecosystem develops and economic activity increases, you’ll see creators, validators and consumers will all hold varying amounts of EMOGI as the utility and usefulness is realized on a regular basis. One of the reasons our social platform Bermi has resonated so strongly in Latin America is because many of the countries have high levels of distrust in media, government, fiat money and their banking systems. As Bermi grows in Latin America, so does the concentration of EMOGI holders in tight proximity. With this, we expect network effects to take hold and people to find value in using EMOGI as a medium of exchange in the $100 billion Latin American remittance market. The team is in active conversation with major players in El Salvador and the Dominican Republic about a EMOGI wallet application for its citizens, with built-in integration with select banks and retailers.…………………………………………….What Exactly Is EMOGI Network? was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Bermi Issues EMOGI IRC-20 Token on IOST | High Popularity In Latin America Translating Into Remittance Use CasesBermi, the short video APP incubated by IOST, officially announced the issuance of EMOGI as an IRC-20 token on IOST today.EMOGI is a widely-distributed digital currency woven through the fabric of two viral products. It’s open, censorship-resistant and easy to use — characteristics that have ensured rapid growth and adoption. It’s programmable, and uses a true proof-of-stake consensus mechanism to incentivize good behavior from all participants.Through the team’s consumer-facing products Berminal and Bermi, Emogi is already one of the most widely distributed digital assets in the world — as millions of users are acquainted with Emogi token and consider it an important medium of exchange. This base-layer adoption will serve as an inherent advantage for Emogi, as layer 2 developers naturally embrace decentralized solutions with built-in user bases. Emogi’s adoption makes it an attractive option for developers, ensuring continued development and innovative breakthroughs in its decentralized application ecosystem.EMOGI in Latin American EconomyA number of regional factors are making Latin America a greenhouse for cryptocurrency to substitute — or even replace — the fiat money. First, the lack of access to the traditional banking services. A recent study found that fewer than 50 percent of Latin American adults have a bank account, comparing to 95 percent in American and 69 percent globally. Second, the high demand and volume of remittance as well as pricey cross-boarder transaction fee. The inbound wire transfers reached $80.5 billion in 2017 and 5 percent of the volume was consumed by fees. Thirdly, many countries in the continent are suffering from severe hyperinflation, exampled by Venezuela, causing plunges in the value of hard-earned savings overnight.IOST-incubated short video social app Bermi has a large user base of over 5 million and this number is still increasing rapidly. With its special economy model incentivizing good content creators with its token EMOGI, Bermi will transferred millions of users to EMOGI at the blockchain project’s initial stage.Thanks to its phenomenal popularity, Bermi has already attracted potential partners and reached partnership plans in several Latin American countries including El Salvador and the Dominican Republic. Bermi plans to promote EMOGI as an international payment currency in these countries. With the existing large user base, EMOGI is determined to help ease up the above-mentioned struggles faced by Latin America and become a mainstream cryptocurrency in the region.IOST X EMOGI, A Big Step in the Crypto WorldHand in hand with EMOGI, IOST aims to use our global influence to contribute to the crypto world. The two will work together to promote the construction of a global decentralized network and enable more people to enjoy the convenient financial service.One small step for IOST x EMOGI, one giant leap for the crypto world!Bermi Issues EMOGI IRC-20 Token on IOST | Strong Latin America Popularity Creates Multiple Use Cases was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST x Grimm’s Antiques | I...

Address: Sunlight Culture and Sport Center, №116, St. Guimiao, Nanshan District, SHenzhen.Increasing traceability and reducing counterfeit products in the art world is a well-known blockchain technology adoption scenario. Today, IOST is excited to announce the strategic partnership with one of the largest Chinese antique collector — Grimm’s Antiques.Located in central Shenzhen, Grimm’s Antiques houses a large collection of antiques from seven European countries and artworks crafted by Chinese artists, with value stretching into millions of dollars. Through IOST’s tracing technology, part of the collection’s certificates will be put on-chain, with a unique identification card for each piece on the IOST blockchain. Buyers can obtain the artwork’s certificate by scanning its ID to check information including price, description, pictures and the current owner. Every artwork will go through strict screening to ensure its authenticity before going on-chain.IOST will also establish a foundation with the Grimm’s Antiques to give out token rewards to buyers. Buyers can win credits for buying artworks and the credits will also be recorded on IOST blockchain for earning IOST tokens.Initiated by Jerry, the representative of an IOST Partner Node, this partnership with Grimm is part of IOST’s progression in enterprise blockchain adoption. IOST will work together with Jerry and his team in realizing more enterprise utility cases in the future. Jerry commented:We have investment in different industries and artwork is only a starting point. We will continue to contribute to IOST’s mass adoption and integration with traditional industries, creating limitless possibilities together.Enhanced tracing technology can not only ensure sellers’ interests, by figuring out the source and circulation of the item, but also optimize user experience by reassuring the buyers.By improving public chain’s performance and security, the tracing technology can better ensure the practicability and authenticity of mass adoption. We believe that blockchain technology can bring about a more efficient and high-trust society by fighting and deterring counterfeit products.Backed by advanced technology and multiple application scenarios, IOST strives to dispel the prejudice that blockchain technology is nothing more than a buzzword and has no practical utility. IOST does not only aim to become the industry benchmark, but also provide better services for industries, including asset tokenization and charitable work. With the assistance from partners like Jerry, IOST is believed to accelerate towards its goals!Join the IOST Community!This is just the beginning and together with our Node Partners, IOST will continue to hold events across numerous cities to engage our community members all around the world!IOST will continue work hand in hand with developers and our community to build the world’s first scalable AND decentralized blockchain project, with a vision of on-boarding over 100 million users by 2019.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: t.me/officialiosIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenJimmy Zhong Twitter: https://twitter.com/jimmyzhong_iostSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficial/Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-Group…………………………………..IOST x Grimm’s Antiques | IOST Drives Enterprise Adoption in Artwork Traceability and Anti-Fakes was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST x HashHub | Sanka Netw...

Sanka Network is a Staking Platform operated by HashHub. Users who hold IOST can join staking on Sanka, where they can receive attractive staking rewards, but also to contribute to the governance of the blockchain network.IOST joins on the list of blockchain ecosystems selected by HashHub to offer staking services to investors. HashHub also joins the IOST ecosystem as Servi node. HashHub is headquartered in Bunkyo-ku, with Junya Hirano as its CEO.What Does Sanka Mean?Sanka means “participation” in Japanese. While mining and staking is often advertised as investment and a method of accumulating crypto, HashHub believes another important aspect of this is participating in the consensus and governance process of the blockchain network.Those who hold large amounts of tokens such as crypto investment funds or institutional investors can be a validator on their own, but thousands of others are not able to do so since the number of tokens being held individually are not enough to meet participation requirements. Sanka will therefore be the platform to provide everyone a way to join the validation process.Sanka Network does not look after investors’ assets, but investors themselves do the staking in their own wallet while receiving rewards.URL:​ https://www.sanka.network/englishFueling Growth of the IOST CommunityBy voting to nodes, the token holders in the IOST network can choose the most reliable node that matters most to them. As long as they keep their tokens staked, they can continually receive rewards for their votes into perpetuity. Contributing to the IOST ecosystem itself and its further development will reward both the nodes and the voters in the long run. We believe that Sanka Network will help IOST grow our base of long-time IOST holders and further expand the IOST Japanese community.Zero Fees Until End of AugustTypically, staking platforms charge a 10–15% fee from what the users earn. Sanka Network will not start charging feeds until the end of August to celebrate the launch of its platform.About HashHub Inc.HashHub is a blockchain studio based in Tokyo. It was founded in April 2018 and is actively engaged in accelerating crypto / blockchain businesses in Japan by providing industry research reports, supporting PoC and product developments with enterprise clients. HashHub also hosts a startup studio in Tokyo for cryptocurrency and blockchain developers both from Japan and abroad. This startup studio serves as a bridge between startups and traditional enterprises as well as for Japanese and foreign crypto communities to connect.………………………………………….IOST x HashHub | Sanka Network by HashHub Launches IOST Staking For Japanese Community was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Staking Program Ranks ...

Staking is becoming increasingly popular in 2019, attracting many major exchanges, firms and investors to participate. Prior to the rise of the staking economy, IOST had already launched its Global Partners Program in December last year. IOST currently holds the first place globally in staking ranks with multiple mainstream blockchain institutions, including StakingRewards and BlockBeats, and ranks #1 against 80+ other projects including EOS and Tron.Staking Market is Developing RapidlyIn early February 2019, Staked.us announced the finish of a seed round worth $4.5 million, which ignited the staking market with a rapid growth in participants, including major exchanges, prominent blockchain firms and numerous investors.Staking has been around for a while. It was first proposed by a member named QuantumMechanic in Bitcoin Forum on July 11, 2011. Sunny King created Peercoin (PPC), the first PoS (Proof of Stake) blockchain, on August 19, 2012, marking the real working PoS model. It was closely followed by the creation of other PoS-based blockchains, including BCNext (Bxt), Blackcoin and Shadowcoin.IOST Partners ProgramIOST consensus mechanism is Proof-of-Believability (PoB). While PoB has features that are superior to PoS, IOST token holders can also participate in staking (known as voting within the IOST community) in the IOST Partners Program. Voting allows token holders to elect the most dedicated Nodes to secure the network and in return, token holders will receive voting rewards for as long as they continue to stake their IOST.As Nodes selected by voters contribute to IOST ecosystem growth and development, both Nodes and voters can receive generous long-term rewards for their contributions.IOST encourages community members to join our Partners Program and participate in ecosystem building together with Nodes and the Foundation.IOST Ranks First Globally in Staking Scoreseven months after the launch of IOST Partners Program, 346 Node Partners from around the world have joined our mainnet, holding close to 3.5 billion staking votes and accounting for 27.8% of IOST total circulating supply.The IOST Partners Program has been lauded user-friendliness, profitability and high accessibility for retail users. IOST’s superior performance is reflected in staking ranks by multiple mainstream blockchain institutions, including StakingRewards and BlockBeats.Staking ScoreAccording to StakingRewards, with low staking complexity, low risk and high staking yield, IOST ranks first among all 85 staking projects (EOS and Tron included) with a score of 96.25.Covering all 85 staking projects including EOS, Tron and IOST, StakingReward conducts a comprehensive assessment on them across multiple factors, including market capitalization, price, staking yield, minimum staking amount, staking complexity and risk.Website: https://stakingrewards.com/Staking YieldAccording to BlockBeats Staking Reward & Dividend Guide, IOST ranks first in expected annual staking yield, far ahead of other projects.Website: https://www.theblockbeats.com/posNumber of Servi NodesThe number of Servi Nodes (similar to Block Producers) on IOST has reached 138 and there is no cap for this number. In comparison, these figures for TRON, ONT and EOS are fixed at 27, 22 and 21 respectively. This means that unlike other PoS chains, IOST has truly achieved decentralization of its mainnet by removing the limit for Nodes in our ecosystem.Stake RatioAccording to StakingRewards, the stake ratio of EOS, IOST, TRON and ONT are 48.13%, 27.81%, 12.14% and 11.92% respectively. IOST ranks second with a relatively high ratio.IOST Partners ProgramThe Foundation has always believed in the collective building and self-governance of IOST by our community, which aligns with the essence of blockchain development.IOST encourages community members to join our Partners Program and contribute to the growth of the IOST ecosystem, and at the same time, share in the attractive profits given out to all ecosystem partners.IOST Partners Program application submission and voting are open continuously without deadlines, which allows candidates to apply anytime.Apply here: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/MQzgbm……………………………………………IOST Staking Program Ranks #1 Globally, Ahead Of 80+ Projects was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Summary of IOST Q2 2019 Con...

On July 18th, 9pm (Beijing time), IOST and ICAC co-hosted the international contribution sharing conference for Q2 2019. Terrence Wang, Cofounder of IOST, and Mei, Marketing Director, attended the conference with over 60 partner nodes and community members worldwide.Moderator, Margarita from the IOST Core Arbitration Community (ICAC), founded by IOST Pacific, shared with the international community that ICAC is is a platform where IOST nodes and community members can share their opinions on IOST governance and development.Speech Summary from IOST RepresentativeIOST Marketing Director, Mei, extended his appreciation to all partner nodes and community members for their contribution and participation and gave a brief overview on technical, commercial, nodes, DApps and staking economy development for IOST in Q2.Mei gave an overview of several challenges that IOST faced in Q2, and shared his plans for Q3 to strengthen communication with partner nodes and for greater engagement.Notable areas that IOST will aim to improve in Q3:Partner CommunicationsRegular face to face meetings and conferences with node partners will be organized to increase participation of every node partner. It is very important for IOST to understand the needs of each node partner and discover more potential opportunities of collaboration.Contributions Transparency Another thing IOST hopes to improve is that, the project’s decision making process to be more transparent. One important point is, evaluation process of node partners needs to be quantified. The evaluation system was to initially put every node in different categories. However, certain parts are hard to be quantified and compared (apples to oranges for different categories). IOST aims to improve this procedure.Project RoadmapIOST will provide clear guidance for Partners on our vision and goals, along with detailed project needs. We found that during the last quarter, as we did not deliver clear goals to our node partners, many node partners hope to contribute to this ecosystem but don’t know how. So we will indicate some clear goals with clear project vision at the beginning of Q3. This could also help us to evaluate contributions easier.We sincerely hope every node partner could submit more valuable suggestions to us, and have more collaborations with IOST.Speech Summary of IOST NodesIOST PacificIOST Pacific provides a platform for community governance.Q2 contributionIOST Pacific provided solutions and comprehensive technical support for IOST in community governance, training and DApp ecosystem building.Q3 planPromote community autonomous governanceEnhance communication between nodes.Increase IOST global influence.Improve IOST community consensus.BEPALBEPAL is a comprehensive blockchain service provider focusing on multi-chain data management and private key technology.Q2 contributionBEPAL integration with IOST.Created and maintained a 500-member community with a series of activities.Initiated streaming, AMA and other online activities.BEPAL’s influencer Yibao created IOST exclusive emojis and short videos.Q3 planContinue to produce blockchain solutions and empower traditional industries to utilize IOST.Release BEPAL Korea and promote IOST in Korea.Continue to expand the community.AtticlabDeveloper team from Russia.Q2 ContributionDeveloped a Telegram bot that helps users track transactions, check balances and amount of resources available on the account and also notifies you when your Servi node has released the rewards you’re due.Developed an online IDE.Q3 PlanExtend the functionality of the Telegram bot.MetanyxDeveloper team based in U.K.Automatic distribution of METXtoken to voters.Represented IOST as partner at Malta Blockchain Summit.Represented IOST as partner at London Blockchain Summit..METX Trading competitionon IOST DEX with 50K IOST prizes.Updates to Swagger Hub for IOST API version 3.0.5–3.1.1.Provide answers to questions from other partners/community/developers.Community support in Telegram/Slack.Support of fellow partners IOST.watch and IOST Venezuela.800 users in Metanyx Telegram group.700k impressions on Metanyx Twitter between April 1st — June 30thLiebiDeveloper group from China with IOST mining pool service.Q2 contributionDapp released: IOST Liebi Pool with 50 million IOST mining achieved in a week.Data subscription and consultancy problems found during development thus developed an iost demux plugin and made it open source.

Just Game Now Live on IOST ...

Note: All IOST DApps are developed by third party developers. Exploring DApps according to players’ own risk-taking capacity is highly recommended. Please contact the DApp team directly for any questions.Just Game is scheduled to launch on IOST today. For specific time, please see our announcement or join its telegram group for updates (https://t.me/justgamediscuss).Developed by Endless Game, Just Game is a new-age innovative blockchain DApp that has already been included in DappRadar and obtained transaction volume of more than 5.4M TRX ( as of 12pm, July 12th).Play Just Game now and win Early Bird rewards: https://justgame.vipEndless Game X IOST | A Close Partnership Continues to Create ValueEndless Game, which has received approximately $7.5M investment from BlueHill Foundation and other institutional investors, is one of IOST’s closest partners. Endless Game aims to create new business focusing on blockchain game development while keeping its traditional business.With over 50 engineers including some leading figures in gaming industry, Endless Game is the Top #1 DApp on both EOS and IOST with the largest user bases.Endless Game revealed that they planned to launch all of its products on IOST mainnet one after another, and would participate in IOST’s Partners Program.Closely after supporting TRON, Endless Game now announces the launch of JustGame.VIP on IOST mainnet.Game RulesJust Game can be interpreted as the upgraded version of FOMO 3D which supports TRON and IOST. It includes mechanisms like share of dividends, last winner’s prize and purchases happening towards the last second but with new exciting factors.1. GIFT BOXIn Just Game, players need to buy GIFT BOX, which represents their share of dividends among the prize pool. The price of the box is fixed (each for 50 IOST). The box’s initial value is zero, but the dividend rights represented by the box will increase with the new box being purchased or upgraded by other players, and the value will become higher and higher, gradually increasing from 0. Similarly, we can infer that the first time we buy a gift box, the higher the revenue it will generate in the whole life cycle of the game, so the sooner you buy it, the better.2. DividendsJust Game has a countdown of 12 hours after the game started. For each box purchased, opened or upgraded, 30 seconds will be added to the countdown. When the countdown ends, the last 100 buyers will share the final prize pool. The last winner can win an additional 5% of the prize pool.Comparing to the last person taking away all the prize, Just Game’s final prize will be shared between 100 players. In this way, the winners are more willing to share and promote the game to others.3. Open The GIFT BOXAnother difference between Just Game and FOMO 3D is that Just Game creates a more flexible mechanism for players to quit the game. Players who purchased boxes and choose to quit the game before it ends can earn double the current value of the box they own.Players can get a fair amount of earnings this way but will also lose their future share of dividends and the chance of being the last 100 lucky winners.What players get by opening the box before the game ends is based on the automatic calculation of the total prize pool, so please remember, GIFT BOX has its own price, but its initial value is zero. Its price will increase if and only if new boxes are purchased or upgraded.4. GIFT BOX UpgradeGIFT BOX can be opened to get double its current value or it can be upgraded or remain closed until the end of the game. Upgrade means to calculate its current value and use it to buy more boxes, like re-invest with dividends. The initial value of boxes purchased using dividends is zero, and needs to restart value accumulation. The more boxes you have, the more share of dividends you will get.How To PlayVisit justgame.vip. Just Game has three versions: IOST, TRX and ETH. Game rules are the same except for different wallet plug-ins, box prices and separate countdowns.In IOST version, please install iWallet plug-in first, each box costs 50 IOST.Check START for game guide.4. Purchase GIFT BOX at “EARNINGS” section where you can also open or upgrade your boxes.5. Copy your link at “PROMOTE” section and share it with other players. If other players purchase GIFT BOX using your link, 5% of the purchase amount will be credited to your account.Join telegram group @ https://t.me/justgamediscuss, and remember, *This Is JUST A Game*………………………………………..Just Game Now Live on IOST | Limited Gift Boxes Up for Grabs! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Compared to Q1, rewards in Q2 will greatly increase.17 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1,539,887 IOST each. In total, over 52M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeAssessment and RankingReport submission was open from July 1st to July 7th, after which report assessment took place. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.A indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers has been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that where similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q1 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each nodes account. For disputes please contact your regional POC (CN, JP, KR or INTL) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 00:00 July 15th (GMT+8)Final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Monday July 15thContribution rewards payouts will by in late July, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith very high potential rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to highly incentive nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative.

Herorats Now Live! | IOST S...

Charity work has been regarded as a major adoption scenario by IOST since our mainner launch in February. Recently, iost-Q.E.D, a Korean development team as well as an IOST partner node, has partnered with Apopo, a world-renowned charitable NGO to develop Herorats, a DApp closely relating to real word charitable work.Every year, tens of thousands of people die or get injured because of landmines left behind from past wars. As of today, there are still over 110M hidden landmines affecting people across 50 countries, refraining them from freely cultivating their lands. Finding a landmine with a metal detector is dangerous and slow.Herorats are much lighter than humans and can avoid setting off the landmine and quickly and safely detect landmines and explosives using their enhanced olfactory system. African pouched rats are known to be able to smell the explosives 1.5 times better than trained dogs.Help Train Herorats To Save The WorldAll donation from Herorats will go to Apopo Foundation which helps countries suffering from landmines to raise money and train poached rats.Players can donate some amount of money directly to Apopo after winning a round of game. Now Herorats only supports IOST and users can play it on OnBlock and its own website.Herorats website: Mineclear.worldDonate to charity while exploring Herorats. Players can check the amount you donate in the ranking menu.Linking IOST with Traditional Gamers through Traditional Payment MethodsApart from IOST, players can use Paypal and Credit card to buy bananas in Herorats and play the DApp. After winning a round of game, a certain amount of donation will automatically to go Apopo Charity.As the first DApp supporting Paypal and credit card payment, Herorats successfully linked the traditional gaming market and crypto market. Players can explore the game by traditional online payment and win IOST, which can help IOST expand to non-crypto users and grow its communities.How to Play HeroratsRules are simple. They are same as any other minesweeper games. In Herorats, however, players can choose difficulty by selecting one of the countries that have different map sizes and varying number of mines. Herorats tried to reflect the actual landmine density of each country.Players can play Herorats in three different play modes, [Gates Mode], [Scrooge Mode], and [Practice Mode]. Each mode represents different amount of rewards and donations.● Players can claim larger reward and donation with [Gates Mode] and [Scrooge Mode], but they require Bananas which can be bought or gifted.● [Gates Mode]: When players choose [Gates Mode], approximately 18% of the total reward pool accrued at each round will be given to the players. Approximately 21% will be donated to Apopo Foundation. (Yes, we were inspired from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.)● [Scrooge Mode]: If you are only interested in maximizing your own reward pool (No offense), you can choose to play as Scrooge and claim approximately 35% of the total reward pool accrued at a specific round, leaving only about 4% for the foundation.● [Practice Mode]: 1% of total reward pool, either Gates or Scrooge Mode, will be transferred to [Practice Mode]. Players can STILL donate by winning the map. (Tiny rewards in this mode)● 50% of the reward pool will be transferred to the next roundThe game also implements a hash verification feature to ensure transparency and fairness of a game. The coordinates of the mines are encoded and converted into different colors of a rat. This colored rat will be shown to the players before game play, notifying that they are not playing the same landmine map. Data conversion process will be applied after the game to check if the colors remain the same.…………………………………Herorats Now Live! | IOST Supports Gaming Dapp With Charity Economics Model was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
