What Has The Chinese Community Been Up To? March 15 – 31
- March 16 – CR Herald published an article to explore a new dApp on elastOS called “Elanote”. Elanote is a decentralised note-taking app on elastOS which allows users to take notes and create a to-do list. As the dApp is built on elastOS, all user data will be linked to the user’s DID and stored on Elastos Hive, or a designated personal cloud drive. Using the same DID, this allows users to access the same records when logging into different devices installed with elasOS.
- March 20 – CR Herald published an article for Sunny Feng Han’s interview with Token TianQi. Sunny discussed his views on how Bitcoin’s adequate liquidity could lead to fast price recovery and why China has a competitive edge to compete with other countries in terms of wealth of the nation via blockchain in the future. He also briefly shared his recent involvement in various LEO projects such as eID and medical data protection.
- March 26 – CR Herald published an article to explore a new dApp on elastOS called “3Gen 2FA”. 3Gen 2FA is a decentralised two-factor authenticator password manager app on elastOS, which is an improved version of Google or Authy authenticators. However, the key difference is that the current 2FAs are basically centralised storage and there is a risk that data could be hacked or stolen. This dApp could also prevent phishing scams and achieve decentralised storage solutions via Elastos Hive with data encryption.
- March 27 – Qu Lu Qu Dong published an article to explore the roles of Elastos’ decentralised carrier in trusted environment computing. From the author’s perspective, Bitcoin is equivalent to a “trusted ledger”, Ethereum is equivalent to a “trusted ledger + trusted computing”, while Elastos is equivalent to a “trusted ledger + trusted computing + trusted execution environment”. Most people only notice the scalability issue of Ethereum, without realising that it still lacks a trusted execution environment.
- March 30 – Lian Shi Jie published an article to explore how elastOS could be the foundation for a value creation ecosystem and the transition from an internet of information to an internet of value. Future data will become digital assets that can be traded easily or transferred from one another, granting every user equal rights access to information and participation in value creation. The author believes that Elastos is designed for the internet of value, which provides an environment for building secured Internet for dApps development, digital assets ownership, verification, creation, trading and consumption.
- March 31 – Ping Cai Jing published an article to discuss how Cyber Republic consensus is breaking free from the shackles of the Internet. Community consensus is one of the underlying basic resources of a blockchain and in this aspect, Elastos has been making steady progress to uphold the vision of enabling everyone has an equal chance to participate in value creation via blockchain. The author believes that CRC is a good start for the blockchain space, but it is still a social experiment that requires verification through actual operations for a period of time.
