Smart Contracts 101

Tune in to the premiere of “Smart Contracts 101” for a high level overview of the powerful tool that is the smart contract. This is the first in a series of educational videos covering Blockstack’s Clarity smart contract language.

A brief introduction to Fetch.ai | Blockchain AI | Fetch.ai

The unique infrastructure of the Fetch.ai network will optimize the world we live in. In this video we explain the real-world benefits our innovative technology will introduce.

Fetch.ai is a world-changing project, a “decentralized digital world” where autonomous software agents act on the behalf of their owners, or themselves, to get useful economic work done.

We are a dynamic, fast-growing international team of experts and forward-thinking technology enthusiasts working on the convergence of blockchain, AI and multi-agent systems. We are building technology for both today and tomorrow – a collective super-intelligence on top of decentralized economic internet built with a highly scalable next-generation distributed ledger technology. Combined with machine learning, this delivers the predictions and infrastructure to power the future economy.

Developing fascinating and promising new technology, we have a team of top class software engineers and researchers working across multiple fields (multi agent systems, machine learning, economics, cryptography).

To further improve our solutions and deploy them in real life scenarios, we also collaborate with top academics and corporate partners across the world .

We believe our technology will improve how we communicate, it will give voice and new opportunities to people, organizations and the Internet of Things, effectively democratizing the space and improving lives of citizens.

The Future of Blockchain

Blockchain is a very powerful group of technologies that facilitates distributed trust. As a decentralized system, it is incredibly robust and adaptable, advantages which are counterbalanced by its slow speed and inefficiency. It is an essential requirement for digital currencies, like Bitcoin, which are useful in places where central banks are ineffective or very expensive. Bitcoin also allows users to do things the government doesn’t approve of, which might be criminal or political or revolutionary or trans-national. But digital currencies are also incredibly volatile and it’s hard to predict their future. Blockchain, on the other hand, offers utility far beyond digital currencies. As we continue to evolve our relationship with technology and privacy, we can see a role for smart contacts, which could be used to negotiate trust and approval across large networks. In the Mirror World, where individuals are constantly contributing virtual objects and artifacts, there is a massive need to verify whether things are legitimate or not. In the physical world, blockchain can be embedded to track the provenance of objects and to confirm authenticity. In a world of 8 billion people, a distributed system like this makes a lot of sense, and many experiments are underway to reduce the need for computational cycles, reducing the environmental costs. We are still waiting to see how decentralized systems like blockchain scale up, and we are still exploring what it’s really good for, but I expect that this technology will become part of the ecosystem of invisible infrastructure in the next 10 years. This video on “The Future of Blockchain” was commissioned by China Mobile as part of an online course. It is one of 36 lecture videos.

How will Tokenization and Smart Contracts shape the Future of IPOs?

If we look at now, we’ve developed a really interesting piece of middleware because the problem is when you’ve got lots of disparate markets, even if they get a digital moving assets between those markets, so where those assets are held on the custody at those markets or elsewhere is incredibly difficult.

What Is Ethereum? | Ethereum Explained

Simplilearn’s Blockchain Certification Training has been designed for developers who want to decipher the global craze surrounding Blockchain, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. You’ll learn the core structure and technical mechanisms of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Hyperledger and Multichain Blockchain platforms, use the latest tools to build Blockchain applications, set up your own private Blockchain, deploy smart contracts on Ethereum and gain practical experience with real-world projects. Why learn Blockchain? Blockchain technology is the brainchild of Satoshi Nakamoto, which enables digital information to be distributed. A network of computing nodes makes up the Blockchain. Durability, robustness, success rate, transparency, incorruptibility are some of the enticing characteristics of Blockchain. By design, Blockchain is a decentralized technology which is used by a global network of the computer to manage Bitcoin transactions easily. Many new business applications will result in the usage of Blockchain such as Crowdfunding, smart contracts, supply chain auditing, Internet of Things(IoT), etc. This Blockchain Certification course offers a hands-on training covering relevant topics in cryptocurrency and the wider Blockchain space. From a technological standpoint, you will develop a strong grasp of core Blockchain platforms, understand what Bitcoin is and how it works, learn key vocabulary and concepts commonly used when discussing Blockchain and understand why engineers are motivated to create an app with Ethereum. Hands-on exercises and projects will give you practical experience in real-world Blockchain development scenarios.
