Plasma: Ethereum chain scalability framework combat part 1

There are two general methods for extending blockchains, the first and second layer solutions. The former is a so-called chain scalability solution, and the protocol level of the base layer and the blockchain network is reconstructed from the bottom layer, such as fragmentation and the conversion protocol (PoW to PoS) in Ethereum 2.0. Although the […]

Some science about Ethereum 2.0

Ethereum 2.0 At the beginning of March, after the “Istanbul” upgrade, Ethereum officially “quiet” stage. "Silence" is also recognized as the 2.0 version of Ethereum, because the Ethereum in the "quiet" stage will switch to the proof of equity (POS algorithm) to reach a consensus, in addition, the fragmentation technology will also be fully online, […]

How is practical programmability implemented in the securities pass?

Recently, someone asked me what is the most interesting function of the securities pass. The author's answer is only one word: programmability. The author firmly believes that programmability is the key to the future development of securities pass, and truly separates encrypted securities from previous financial industry activities. However, implementing programmability in cryptographic securities is […]

Decred technical white paper Chinese version

Two years ago, I took the time to translate the technical white paper of Decred. The original address is: The Chinese version was published in the Chinese community of Decred. Decred is the world's first PoS/PoW based hybrid. The blockchain project of the consensus engine. Recently, after investing in and incubating the blockchain project, […]

Elliptic Curve Cryptography & Workload Proof

Most cryptographic assets use an elliptical curve identical to Bitcoin, called secp256k1. This makes it possible to reuse Bitcoin's many elliptic curve libraries and tools. Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) is a public key encryption algorithm based on elliptic curve mathematics. The following figure shows that most cryptographic assets use an elliptic curve identical to Bitcoin, […]

Popular Science | Hash Function Brief

Hash functions are an integral part of blockchain technology and can be used for a variety of purposes. It is a mathematical function that accepts input of any given length and produces a fixed length output. The output is usually called a hash value, a (hash) digest or a hash. There are many hash functions, […]
