Weekly Report – April 22nd, 2019

Introduction

Alongside DPoS Elections, KP hosted a Developer Workshop on Youtube, Famous Amos reviewed the latest CR Weekly Report, Anypeer came out with cool new features on its app, and our CR News team has just finished building an exciting website devoted to CR News and Education that will be a major portal to the main CR website!

Michael S, Elastos Telegram Admin has helped recap the Developer Workshop hosted by KP. He explains that after an introduction to the workshop series, KP demonstrated how to set up a private net on the Elastos Network and get code in order to load sidechains on it.  With the workshop being live, developers could chime in on the discussion and ask questions in real time. The ability for developers to test code before it goes live is an absolute necessity. Check out the workshop here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mn9pz2UORo

Anypeer, one of the many messaging dapps on the Elastos network, has come out with some new features. Community member Chinicci tweets about the updates: “Finally! AnyPeer is available in android playstore. AnyPeer is Dapp powered by @Elastos_org Carrier and SPV. You can send text, pictures and videos to each other and the group chat option is enabled. The great news is that you can send $ELA to your friends within the app.”

Finally, the CR Press team is very excited to introduce a new website built around its landing page’s words: “Change the World Forever”.

https://cyberrepublic.press/  

This website was self-directed by our team and was built by well-known community member, Famous Amos. It will set the stage to much greater contributions to the CR ecosystem.

After the stimulating video (or feel free to skip it), click on one of two options: Latest News and Get Involved.  Latest News takes you to the complete, organized collection of CR Weekly Updates written in the past several months. “Get Involved” directs you to the main Cyber Republic Website which explains the Suggestions process and how to participation in the CR.

Aside from articles being independently viewable, searchable, and linked, the entirety of each latest weekly update will be formatted in a much more user-friendly way for quick browsing.  See an example of one here:
https://cyberrepublic.press/weekly-report-april-15-2019-2/

We are positive that this website will benefit the whole ecosystem in providing unbiased news and information regarding anything CR, Elastos, and hopefully, general crypto and technology related.

“Our mission is to serve our readers with the noble spirits of Journalism and Education. We seek to tell the whole truth, disseminate information to all readers, and educate the public about Blockchain and the Cyber Republic Ecosystem without bias or private interest.”

“The Modern Internet is Coming”

With DPoS Elections underway and with more developments coming each week, the Smart Web continues its advance toward becoming a fully autonomous and decentralized entity that we dream of it becoming.

New Supernodes Candidates!

“Thailand is one of the countries that crypto regulation has been actively worked on by government, SEC, and related parties. Blockchain and cryptocurrency communities are lively here. There are a lot of opportunities for Elastos to grow as well as a lot of work to be done.

From the Bangkok Elastos meetup in March 2019, we made a baby step in forming a Thai Elastos developer group. We’re building a plan to bring local developers into Elastos and the Cyber Republic. Running a supernode is an important part of the plan as it will be one of our sustainable sources of funds for local activities.

For our supporters (voters), beside the ELA rewards, there will be a “special reward” that will utilize Elastos infrastructure and the digital economy concepts. We plan to build this as a showcase to attract more blockchain developers to join us and hope that voters and the whole community will have fun at the same time!

We joined IDEA to support decentralization of DPoS nodes and long term growth of the ecosystem. More details about the “special reward” and website will be released. Please stay tuned.

BTC.com has officially joined the Elastos Supernode campaign.  

“A few days ago, Elastos officially launched the DPoS super node campaign.  The consensus mechanism is AUXPoW+DPoS. AUXPoW is joint mining. It is essentially the same as PoW, and it is characterized by borrowing the power of Bitcoin. In order to enhance the security and robustness of the Elastos consensus mechanism, to avoid excessive concentration of computing power, and to allow the global community to participate in the construction of the Elastos network, enrich the Elastos ecosystem, and also come to the Elastos in AUXPoW joint mining based on the DPoS consensus mechanism.

“On April 19th, BTC.com officially announced its participation in the DPoS SuperNode campaign of the Global Elastos Community, and together with members of the global community to build the next generation of decentralized Internet.

“After the campaign is over, there will be 108 valid nodes generated, of which 36 are elected nodes and 72 are candidate nodes. At that time, these nodes from the community, ecology, media, etc. will escort the Elastos network to run the DPoS consensus mechanism, opening a new era of Elastos blockchain network.

“As the largest bitcoin open source mining pool in the whole network, BTC.com promotes community development with practical actions based on the values ​​of “contributing to the digital currency community”. The participation in the Elastos global community DPoS super node campaign, BTC.com mining pool hopes to build a prosperous, diverse and sustainable community ecosystem.

BTC.com currently offers mining services in ten major currencies, and has been heavily involved in the construction of the open source community, making a lot of contributions to the open source community and expansion of the fork. In the near future, we have introduced a number of talents who are influential and contributing in the open source community, hoping to make more contributions to the blockchain open source community and the cloud community.

For more news on SuperNodes, stay tuned for the BTC.com public number!”

There has been a slew of new Supernodes led by Feng Han’s Manhattan Project that will be running as candidates for the DPoS Elections. Here are the following new candidates, some with their websites attached. As most of these nodes are Chinese in origin, our information is incomplete:

BOHUI, Aiyongshangcheng, Storswift (https://stopswift.com/)

Heibei Community, Chain World (https://www.7234.cn/)

Manhattan Project, Green Gang, ChainClub, Bightbc https://www.bightbc.com/

There has also been a Supernode of Chinese Community Moderators announced.

Chinese Community

A columnist, Han Ming, has published an article on digital data and personal information being assets in the People’s Daily, the biggest newspaper in China.

In his article, he recognises that data is a valuable asset, and personal information is also a property right. A reasonable mechanism to reflect the value of information should be established based on the principle of,  “who owns, who benefits; who uses, who pays”.

He mentions that it is also imperative to protect the property rights of owning your data from a legal perspective, as soon as possible. Previously, there were legal provisions stipulating that network operators should publicize the purpose of their information collection and user’s consent has to be obtained for the use of that information. The practice should be extended into all areas involving personal information, especially in the “Internet+” industry. As long as the data is used by merchants to provide better services to consumers, rather than for selling as profit for company’s own good, the users can choose their level of disclosure as well as whether it is free of charge or sold at a cost.

We of the Cyber Republic know very well the above principles, and we are glad to see that the mainstream media has recognised the problem and has taken the initiative to publicize it and educate Chinese citizens. The principals are not new, and what is essential is the proper implementation and enforcement. Fortunately, the best solution (Elastos) is around the corner with nice progress in Elastos development: Elastos Carrier, Rutime, DID, merged mining, and the upcoming DPoS consensus, to name just a few. A new internet that safeguards personal information and digital assets will solve this massive problem and create a new economy of wealth to the society as a whole.
