BlockShow Asia 2017: Achain Offers A Unifying Platform

BlockShow Asia – Forking theory comes to life through Achain’s announcement.

As Blockshow Asia continues in Singapore, the Cointelegraph-powered event is bringing new technology into focus. With the many new forks and the risk for greater confusion regarding forking theory, keynote speaker Yuan Li from Achain presented a detailed explanation of where forking may evolve in the future, comparing Blockchain to Darwinian theory.

Achain, the public Blockchain platform that allows users of any skill level to issue tokens, smart contracts, create applications and Blockchain systems, has conceptualized a unifying Blockchain platform that will bring all together, and make forks more unified, rather than competitive. Achain is committed to building a global Blockchain network for information exchange and value transactions.

Achain’s vision

The Achain vision is to build a forking theory that is collaborative, rather than mutually exclusive. This system would require a  process of requesting, approving and executing through mutual agreement of participants. Such a system would apply the democratic principle that forces all nodes to respond with feedback. According to Li:

“Information such as genius block, seed nodes, service identification and fork height will be taken to online in preparation of the forking. The newly created sub-chain will have its consensus method, data storage and block capacity available for free customization.”

The interconnectedness and sharing of information would be accomplished through Value Exchange Protocol (VEP). Achain’s vision is to move from their first iteration, Singularity, to their new version, Galaxy, by constructing a secure and stable foundation for the Blockchain network through smart contract and sandbox technologies.

BlockShow Asia 2017 Begins, Opens With Big EOS Announcement

BlockShow Asia opens with a bang – EOS announces new test platform.

BlockShow Asia, the much-anticipated Blockchain conference, has just begun in Singapore. The event, powered by Cointelegraph, is designed to allow participants to meet and partner with some of the best and brightest names in the Blockchain community, while also providing valuable insights into how the disruptive technology is growing and impacting industries.

The show began with an important announcement, as the team of EOS, an Ethereum-based DApp platform, revealed a new testing platform called STAT (Single-Thread Application Testnet). The new platform is a publicly available testing environment maintained by Block.One.

BlockShow AsiaFeatures and future

The testing platform is designed to be the perfect environment for developers to test their DApps, and for producers to evaluate the EOS.IO platform. The STAT system offers some important features.

For example, the platform simulates the EOS Production environment that will be available mid-2018. With the coming release of the new EOS platform, developers will have ample lead time to build and test new DApps.

Additionally, the testnet will also feature technical improvements. Block times will reduce to just one second (from the previous three-second timing), and the expected transaction speed will be between 500 and 1,000 per second.

For interested developers, the EOS team has designed a developer API. Further, they have built a GitHub repository with substantial resources for getting started on the testnet.

In the future, the testing environment will also include a multi-thread application Testnet (MAT), with a genesis block sometime in June of 2018. The announcement represents the next major step forward for the development of Blockchain technology.

Much more will be forthcoming from the Cointelegraph team, who is in Singapore covering the show. Additionally, a live feed is available from the conference for everyone who wants to track what’s going on in real time.

EOS To Talk DACs, Tokens and Blockchain-powered Conscious Culture At BlockShow Asia 2017

BlockShow Asia has announced partnership with EOS.IO, a Blockchain software platform, which provides infrastructure for Decentralized Applications development.

BlockShow Asia powered by Cointelegraph has proudly announced its partnership with EOS.IO, a Blockchain software platform, which provides scalable, flexible and usable infrastructure for Decentralized Applications development.

EOS.IO is the product of block.one, a worldwide-known publisher of Decentralized Autonomous Corporations (DACs).

“The block.one team has been working relentlessly to make EOS.IO the most advanced Blockchain software possible. While advancing the core software, we have also been working with a number of major players in the industry to migrate their platforms to make use of the EOS.IO software.”

Brendan Blumer, CEO at Block.One

The current EOS.IO roadmap includes single-threaded testing environment ready for December, followed by multi-threaded development taking place in 2018. Overcoming this roadmap goes on very active and successful so far – in particular, the team shared some news about the work on the parallel execution engine has begun eight months ahead of schedule and, according to their plans, it will be ready by June 2018. “The work required to make this happen includes a complete rewrite of chainbase, the underlying database technology behind Steem,” – explained the company.

Chatting with the block.one team, the BlockShow team was inspired by the fact that the company feels and shares the main motto of the conference: to become a window to the global Blockchain ecosystem for all those bright and innovative Blockchain-powered companies across the Far East. Talking about how important it is for the worldwide Blockchain scene, Brock Pierce from block.one shared his thoughts:

“Fundamentally, Blockchain is based on the idea of freedom of speech and giving power back to the individual. It’s about making change and making improvements. By bringing people together from around the globe with a shared vision of where this technology can go, we can build really powerful systems that can change the world.”

Moreover, EOS also shared their vision of how important it is to always stay in the middle of all the Blockchain networking and event activities, as well as support them:

“Conferences and meetups are the heart and soul of the Blockchain community. Conferences like BlockShow Asia create a space that allows people, no matter what their current level of Blockchain knowledge, the time to meet with others that may have a shared vision or philosophical view of the world and where this technology can go. It also gives industry leaders the chance to come together and lay the framework that will revolutionize the future of business. That is a very powerful thing.”

From their side EOS is preparing a pretty versatile – and pretty reach – program. Thus, in the morning of the first BlockShow Asia day, the guests will hear insight from its senior analyst, Joshua Lavin. On the second conference day, you will hear from Brock Pierce, partner at block.one and one of the most recognized personalities in the Crypto/Blockchain field. In his opening keynote, he will share his thoughts on cryptocurrency, Blockchain and Conscious Culture. Moreover, apart from these two full speeches, Pierce will also step up as a panelist for “Blockchain & the Token Economy” discussion on the second day of BlockShow.

This all is going to happen really soon, but meanwhile, the clocks are ticking the final days and hours before the epic BlockShow Asia 2017! So it’s now or never – go to the BlockShow Asia official website, look at our fabulous agenda and participants, and waste no time — just grab your ticket. We are sold out of more than 90 percent so far, so hurry up!
