nMobile: The Trusted Chat
nMobile: the trusted chat“The decisions we make about communication security today will determine the kind of society we live in tomorrow.” — Dr. Whitfield Diffie, co-creator of public key cryptography and advisor to NKNExecutive SummarynMobile is an extra secure and trusted chat app, available on iOS and Android today.Why nMobile? To eradicate the roots of security hacks and privacy issues of popular chat apps such as whatsapp and signal, by removing all centralized servers.Targeted audience: people who put highest priority on security and privacy, such as crypto community, minority groups, and financial/legal/health professionals.Why is it better? nMobile runs on dataRide, a blockchain powered distributed communication system by over 20,000 independent, open source and community run relay servers.The Never-ending security crisis and the Call for trusted communicationOn Friday 31st of July, a group of hackers compromised Twitter and gained access to 130 accounts including those of Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian, Bill Gates, and Elon Musk. These breaches often put your data, your family’s data, your employer’s data, and sometimes even your city, state, or federal governments data at risk. The more we rely on digital communication platforms due to the pandemic, the more crucial security and privacy matters.Signal or WhatsApp were originally created to meet the demand for a secure chat option. They offer a relatively secure platform where rich text messages could be sent and received between individuals and public/private groups. These applications grant end to end encryption, ensuring big improvements in messaging security at the time they were released.However, today we need even more secure communication. Applications such as Signal and WhatsApp are no longer enough to protect our private data. With their infrastructures relying on a centralized database, they are more susceptible to large scale attacks; by using cell-phone numbers as identity, their system is very vulnerable to SIM swap attacks; furthermore, your private key might be stored in a centralized server of these Apps.We can definitely communicate securely and keep our data private. But it’s going to take a new generation of platforms and services to make it happen. That is why we created nMobile.The Trusted ChatNKN versus competition (whatsapp, signal)nMobile solves these security issues by being a truly decentralized and distributed application. Instead of “don’t be evil”, nMobile “can’t be evil”. In order to accomplish this, we eliminated the possibility of security and privacy breaches by removing centralized servers entirely. This means thatThere is no centralized server hosted by any company or individual.All your data is stored on your device and never in the cloud.Your private key is only stored on your local device, and never “backed up” in the cloud.All data is end-to-end encrypted and never accessible by any relay node in transit.No surveillance, no “big brother”.So only you, and you alone, can read the messages intended for you.The ultimate secure communication powered by dataRideThe secure and free nature of nMobile almost seems too good to be unrealistically amazing. However, it’s built on amore than solid foundation as the whole network is powered by NKN’s dataRide platform, a distributed architecture with over 20,000 independent relay servers in 40+ countries worldwide that makes it nearly impossible for a malicious party to take down the network. And below are some key blockchain technologies that dataRide employs to power nMobile.dataRide is enabled natively on all NKN full node mainnet software. and takes advantage of a novel consensus we call Proof of Relay, a useful Proof of Work. Miners who run the software and relay traffic have an opportunity to earn rewards.NKN miners are incentivized to run dataRide traffic. The more dataRide traffic a mining node relays, the higher chance it will get the next block reward. This is one form of very efficient and useful PoW, which we call it Proof of Relay.dataRide enables true peer to peer data communication which uses NKN’s unique and global IDs ensured by the underlying blockchain technology, allowing communication between devices, even if these devices don’t have a public IP address on the internet, since each peer is defined by its public/private key pair. Peers uses NKN addresses (its public key) for routing instead of an IP address. So, the fundamental identity and security is ensured by underlying blockchain technology. This also solvesd the problem that most clients (e.g. mobile phones and PCs) do not have a public IP addresses, and traditionally rely on centralized servers (security and privacy honeypot) to communicate with each other.dataRide offers auses payment channels between peers, for direct payment for services using NKN token and Blockchain accounting.micropayment of volume-based data usage. e.g. a user using dataRide file transfer service pays directly to the miners who provide the relay service. There is no central body to do accounting, billing, and payment. Again, this payment channel is enabled by blockchain tech.A brighter future with trustWe believe nMobile is the future of secure communications. By offering secure communications that incorporate end-to-end encryption along with strict local storage of private keys and a distributed architecture, users can feel safe in sharing information with their friends, family, coworkers, and business partners again.Try nMobile today and rest assured your data will stay private and secure!

NKN Mainnet Token Swap Upda...
NKN Mainnet Swap 2020IntroductionSince September 2019, we have enabled two-way token swap between NKN Mainnet and ERC-20 tokens. A few major milestones have been achieved since then:A very thorough and detailed security audit has been successfully completed and the final report has been published. This audit looks into all the source code of our nkn node software, as well as wallet and client SDK. Our core development team has fixed all major issues discovered during this 6-month long audit. We are certain that our mainnet is secure and dependable.There is a significant increased usage of our NKN mainnet token for applications such as nMobile, nCDN and TUNA.We have the world’s largest production mainnet with between 12,000 to 25,000 full consensus nodes, from July 2019 to June 2020. In addition, we have an absolute diversified and decentralized mining community, with less than 1% of mainnet nodes run by the NKN team.Dual token co-existenceWe plan to make both NKN Mainnet and NKN ERC-20 tokens available for the foreseeable future. Here are the reasons:Ethereum is a proven platform with one of the strongest asset security capabilities in the entire blockchain industry. NKN Mainnet is very secure, as evident from the security audit, but relatively young compared to Ethereum.It will take some time to complete integration with all major exchanges.We want to make sure that every NKN token holder has enough time to carry out the token swap.Swap scheduleThe official swap tool is located here: https://swap.nkn.orgNKN token swap between mainnet and ERC-20 is available according to the following schedule:ERC-20 to Mainnet token swap: always openMainnet to ERC-20 token swap: open for 2 weeks every 2 monthsJuly 20–31, 2020September 21–30, 2020November 16–27, 2020Future dates to be announced.Additional notes:The minimum amount to be swapped is 100 NKN.We want to make every effort possible to ensure that token holders can swap their assets in sufficient time.Please note that NKN Foundation reserves the right to change the schedule due to national holidays, major events, technical support availability, and other factors.ExchangesEach exchange has a different technical and financial requirement when it comes to an integration schedule for mainnet tokens. NKN will work with all major exchanges to make sure they support NKN mainnet token, and provide a smooth token swap mechanism for current ERC-20 token holders who deposit their assets on those exchanges.We will start with smaller exchanges and gradually move up to higher volume exchanges, with abundance of caution for asset security.Hardware wallet supportHardware wallets add an additional layer of offline security and are valuable to some of our token holders. We intend to support the most popular hardware wallets, and specifically Ledger Nano. The time schedule for hardware wallet support will be announced later, after some of our commercial product launches.Additional informationHow to tell if your NKN tokens are Mainnet or ERC-20?Mainnet NKN token address: NKN********ERC-20 NKN token address: 0x12FE45****The official swap tool is located here:https://swap.nkn.orgFor complete guide, you can find it here: https://forum.nkn.org/t/guide-nkn-s-official-mainnet-token-swap-tool/1727After reading our guide and you still have questions, please contact our customer support email@example.com.NKN Mainnet Token Swap Update 2020 was originally published in #NKN on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Potentially unfair consensus competition due to port reusing in POR protocol (Severity: low)4.1.1. OverviewTo mitigate possible Eclipse attacks on the POR consensus network, NKN puts a “one ID per IP” policy that any IP address can only host at most one NodeID by fixing the target port of outbounding connections; However, it is still possible to bypass this limitation and host multiple NodeIDs on a single IP address by implementing a NodeID proxy with dedicated listener logic.(details omitted)4.1.2. StatusUnfixed.First, there’s no effective way to enforce the “one ID per IP” policy in the current NKN architecture.However, according to NKN’s design philosophy, the only valid competitive resource for consensus is bandwidth, not IP addresses. Thus, this restriction should be removed and permit hosting multiple NodeIDs on a single IP in the future.NKN successfully complete security audit of mainnet was originally published in #NKN on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Rule110: Open API for NKN D...
Rule110 NKN OpenAPIWith the upcoming release of NKN 2.0, the community developer scene is growing strongly. Recently the developers of the community-known NKNx ecosystem ChrisT and lightmyfire and the creator of nStatus, Mutsi, decided to join force and form the first NKN Open-Source community called “Rule110”.“Rule110 is an approach to get more developers involved into the NKN blockchain. For this we will take more than 90% of our work, document it and open source it” says Chris. “We have all been working with NKN for a long time now and I think it is time to bring community development to the next level.”The team has already released the NKN open API — a project based on the NKNx API that leads the way to an easy-to-use programming interface for developers. “We believe that everyone should benefit from our long-term research in NKN. Rule110 gives tech-interested people a place for learning and get help for their projects.” comments Mutsi. Also, we asked the team about upcoming projects. “Development on the remapped NKN-explorer is already finished, so that release will come in the next few weeks. Also there will be a revamped wallet-app and of course a vanity service for generating cool Wallet addresses. I’m sure much more will come in the future” says lightmyfire.NKN Community Project built on Rule110 OpenAPI“Blockchain explorers have always been a centralized point in most blockchain ecosystems. NKN open API solves this problem by making it extremely easy for developers to host such a service and build more stuff upon it, which is critical for further decentralizing and extending the ecosystem.” says Yilun, CTO of NKN. Currently the NKN team is already running an instance of the NKN open API and will provide it as a public service.The repositories of rule110 are available here:https://github.com/rule110-io/About NKNNKN is the new kind of P2P network connectivity protocol & ecosystem powered by a novel public blockchain.

How Will 5G Change The Worl...
Wireless city futureThe world is set to make an unprecedented change. Perhaps the start of the fourth industrial revolution will be 5G internet. This is the next evolutionary stage in internet speed, latency, and reliability. It will change the way we do business, the way we use social media, and even the way we game.Already, proponents predict we will be able to download whole movies and Netflix series in a matter of seconds. We’ll be able to upload photos from our smartphones in milliseconds. 5G will also change the way technology works, chief among them all-electric cars. But how will it change the world?What exactly is 5G?Internet cell tower5G will be a higher frequency but short-range cellular internet. This means that although you will have a smaller radius from cellphone towers before you start slowing down, it will give you super-fast speeds. The solution is to erect more towers. So when you are almost out of the range of one tower, another tower will automatically pick you up. The plan is to make sure you never feel a difference. The speeds will be up to 2–3 times quicker than the current 4G network. It’s also touted that 5G uses less power per bit, which is better for businesses who have an internet of things network.Related: 5G and the New Kind of NetworkHow Does 5G work?From the central server, the 5G macro towers will connect with all the devices that hook up to it. This can be, cars, smartphones, computer systems in buildings, and the family household. Operating at a higher frequency allows for more data to be sent, quicker than 4G.The downside is, as aforementioned, that the 5G masts have a shorter range. Much like radar, low-frequency waves travel much further. 5G networks use the new high frequency mmWave or millimeter-wave. Because of this, the serving coverage is shorter for each 5G base station and operators will need to increase the number of base stations to cover the same distance in order to avoid drops in internet coverage.Looking for assistance with network sharing? NKN are experts and they can help!Who provides 5G? How do millimeter waves interact with technology? What is the difference between 5G and previous networks?SmartphonesContrary to popular belief, there isn’t a wave of 5G providers just over the horizon. Any significant change in technology is always going to be incredibly expensive. The most significant players with skin in the game are Vodafone, Qualcomm, Samsung, ZTE, Nokia, Huawei, Cisco Systems, and others. The challenge is, creating a high-frequency millimeter-wave at an affordable price. This new wave interacts with technology by demanding a higher refresh rate for the data to be continuously updated and received. It will also have a higher capacity so more users can connect to the same macro tower. The main differences between 5G and 4G are a lot more speed, multi-task capability, and beamforming, which will isolate waves and send them more directly to those connected. In other words, fewer cut-outs.A brief comparison of 1G, 2G,3G, 4G, and 5G1G (Analog Cellular such as NMT) started in the 70s and was implemented in the early 80s. It had a bandwidth of 30KHz and a data speed of just 2 kbps. It was mostly used for voice communication, and only for a few that could afford it. Do you still remember those bulky brick-like Motorola cell phones with stick-out antennas that assistants carry for their boss? But that paved the way for more generations of wireless communication.In 1980 2G (Digital Cellular such as GSM and CDMA) came online and lasted until 1999. For the first time, it enables mass-market adoption of mobile communication because it offered much smaller and affordable phones and subscriptions. 2G is still voice-centric, since It didn’t have much to offer in the way of online content. It had a maximum bandwidth of 64kpbs. One of the few services, short message service (SMS) or text message, became the accidental mass market success that has lasted until today.3G was released in 1990 but lasted until very recently. It improved the quality of voice calls, while significantly increasing data speed. This enabled full web access (instead of limited mobile abridged version in 2G) and started the true wireless Internet. Building upon the global standards, it enabled affordable wireless communication to everyone from Scandinavian to Sub-Saharan Africa.4G was the Jack of all trades, with LTE leading the technological revolution. It had a frequency of up to 8Ghz and a bandwidth of anywhere between 2,000mbps to 1Gbps. The main contribution of 4G over 3G was substantial speed and latency improvements for mobile Internet. During the reign of 4G, which is still dominant today, mobile Internet traffic and commerce revenue are starting to eclipse that of fixed Internet.What 5G wants to do is simply blow them all out of the water. Rather than an incremental improvement, it’s going for capabilities 2 to 3 times more than 4G. At a frequency of 30Ghz and 1Gbps or higher in bandwidth, 5G aims to enable a new breed of mobile applications from consumer use (Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality, 4K/8K video streaming, autonomous cars) to industrial (Internet of Things, Machine to Machine communication, and high speed robotics).If you are looking for a publish and subscribe service? If so NKN offers nPubSub which can meet your needs!How will 5G change the modern world?So how will this giant leap in technology change the world? In just about every way you can think of. Imagine being able to watch movies in 4K while on the train, commuting to work. Imagine being able to download entire video games in a couple of minutes. Imagine being able to use all your devices at the same time, at the peak of their performance, without missing a single beat. This is what 5G is setting out to offer.Currently, 5G connecting technologies are being offered in the latest mobile phones. The Samsung S20 is a prime example. While the current reported bandwidth are ranging from 1 to 3GBps and 5G towers are only just being erected, it’s hard to tell if they are working at optimum settings and whether or not the technology in smartphones can fully harness the potential.The data-centric future of 5G looks set to be taking full advantage of the cloud. With so much data moving through the servers and firewalls, it’s going to be tricky to keep data protected from cybercriminals. According to NKN Official Blog, there will also be a lot of slicing and sharing between networks. Companies will need to share masts and or figure out a way to profit from sharing users.Related: 5G Enables NKN to Connect Real EconomyCriticism of 5GThere are some health concerns about 5G, regarding the frequency some of the 5G systems operate in (millimeter wave), and the densification of 5G small cells. So far there is no conclusive research results that 5G will impact health more or less than existing cellular systems like 3G and 4G. For more information, here are some balanced articles:“5G Is Coming: How Worried Should We Be about the Health Risks?” by Scientific American, September 2019https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/5g-is-coming-how-worried-should-we-be-about-the-health-risks/“Does 5G pose health risks?” by BBC, July 2019https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48616174Where is 5G currently available?Some nations are moving ahead with 5G quicker than others. Currently, there are trials of 5G networks in America, namely 31 cities such as San Diego, New York City, and Los Angeles. In the UK, Vodafone is expanding its implementation in London, Cardiff, and Manchester. China is thrusting it’s 5G network in Beijing and the neighboring cities.5G networks are set to change the world. Still, it’s not a case of technology, more so the cost of infrastructure and security, that is slowing its implementation.Our world is more connected than ever, even when pandemics are separating us physically. 5G is not a panacea, but it will make our connection faster and more secure. We look forward to more innovations around 5G that can increase industrial productivity and improve human life.How Will 5G Change The World?
