IOST Mainnet Transaction Vo...

Since the official launch of the IOST mainnet on February 25, 2019, our mainnet numbers such as the number of DApps, the number of mainnet accounts, and the number of mainnet transactions have all grown rapidly. In terms of technology, ecosystem, market, partner nodes, etc. we have also gradually made major achievements and as a result became a leading public chain platform alongside Ethereum, EOS, and Tron.As of July 9, 2020, the number of transactions on the IOST mainnet officially exceeded 400 million, reaching 400,515,735 transactions.The unique PoB consensus mechanism of the IOST main network allows the IOST mainnet to have excellent performance, high scalability, and high concurrency on the basis of decentralization and security and can allow thousands of transactions to be conducted simultaneously. This provides a solid technical base and support for IOST to develop deeper cooperation with governments and enterprises.Mainnet votingThanks to the support of more than 400 partner nodes and all community members in the IOST ecosystem, the total number of IOST that are under voting has exceeded 4.6 billion, reaching 4.62 billion, accounting for 30.8% of the circulating supply.This breakthrough progress means that the IOST ecosystem is deeply recognized and well supported by organizations and community users, and will lay a solid foundation for IOST to continue exploring and deploying new models and propositions in the blockchain industry.In December 2018, the IOST partner program was officially launched globally. As of now, we have recruited over 400 partner nodes worldwide, received strong support from community members, developers, DApp development teams, media companies, exchanges, mining pools, blockchain enthusiasts, and more! IOST ecosystem partner nodes are all over the whole and cover all fields in the blockchain industry.The potential return of IOST to nodes and community voters is very high. We think that through a generous incentive plan, partners will be encouraged to make great contributions to the IOST ecosystem and work together with IOST to build the world’s largest decentralized system.IOST voting will never stop, and all community members are welcome to join. Voting does not only give monetary returns but also determine the future of IOST.At the same time, IOST candidate applications will always remain open, with no deadlines and no upper limit for the number of candidates, you can apply to join at any time. We hope that more community enthusiasts will become IOST node partners and participate in the community governance and ecosystem construction jointly with IOST, get great returns, and change the future of IOST.IOST Ranks 1st in Basic TechOn June 18, 2020, the China Electronics and Information Industry Development Institute (CCID Research Institute) released the 18th issue of the Global Public Chain Technology Evaluation Index. Notably, the latest issue of the index, that ranks the top 37 public blockchain projects in the world has put IOST at a respectful 4th position — rising up a spot from its rank in the previous period. The top four projects comprise EOS, TRON (TRX), Ethereum (ETH), and IOST, respectively.According to the latest rankings published by the CCID which comes under the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, decentralized, public blockchain network IOST ranked 1st in the basic-tech field scoring 108.7 points. Overall, the project ranked 4th ahead of the likes of some of the most prominent cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Stellar (XLM), XRP, NEO, and Litecoin (LTC), among several others.IOST advantages in terms of function, performance, security, and decentralization have brought IOST to a higher place and to overtake other projects:The world’s first decentralized & scalable platform that support thousands of nodes and high TPS simultaneously:Developer friendly0 security issuesOriginal PoB consensus mechanism to ensure high decentralization of IOST blockchain networkLatest CCID Blockchain Rankings Place IOST 1st in Basic Tech, 4th Overall | BTCMANAGERJoin The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

Initial Results for IOST 20...

Partner and Servi Node contribution report submission for Q2 2020 has now officially concluded and initial rankings have been assessed by the IOST Foundation Committee. In total, 90 nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories.Since the establishment of the partner node program, IOST has continuously optimized and adjusted it based on the feedback of each partner and recently launched the v4.0 Staking Mechanism on May 20, 2020. The version officially took effect on July 1, 2020. Therefore, the evaluation and distribution of rewards in Q2 2020 will still be conducted in accordance with Staking 3.0.In addition, since last quarter was set from January 1st to March 9th. Therefore, this quarter, a total of 113 days will account as contribution period and rewards will be issued according to the period from March 10, 2020, to June 30, 23:59.There will be over 130 million IOST as contribution rewards and dividends this quarter. Among them, a total of over 65 million IOST belong to the rewards based on contributions and will be distributed to the partners and voters according to the tier.According to the rules of the Staking mechanism v3.0, all partner nodes will be organized into 5 tiers, the number of people in tier 1–4 will not exceed the upper limit (respectively 18, 19, 25, 20), with no limit in tier 5, and the reward amount for each tier is fixed. In addition, the contribution reward ratio for tier 1–3 has been raised. Therefore, the rewards for tier 1–3 partners will increase greatly this quarter.In this evaluation period, a total of 16 nodes successfully achieved tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of more than 2M IOST each. It is worth mentioning that the tier 2 partners will also receive a higher amount of contribution rewards. Each tier 2 node and its voters can get a total of more than 1.2 million IOST as contribution rewards.Assessment and RankingDistribution of IOST contribution rewards (Calculated according to contribution score)Note: Starting July 1, 2020, IOST will conduct evaluation and reward distribution in accordance with the Staking mechanism v4.0.On June 22, 2020, IOST issued the Q2 nodes contribution report submission notice, and the collection ended at 23:59 on June 30. After that, each node’s report was assessed independently by the IOST Foundation Committee.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers have been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that were similar, close in scores, or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where an assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking.Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made.After this period, all contribution rewards for Q2 2020 will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each node’s account. For disputes please contact your regional responsible (China, Japan, Korea, or International) for the node ecosystem.Disputes will be open until 23:59 Friday, July 10th (GMT+8).The final rankings will be released on Monday, July 13th.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by the end of August, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Please send email to: Stephanie@iost.ioBuilding the IOST Node EcosystemIn 2020, IOST optimized the contribution reward system of partner nodes and introduced the contribution reward system v2.0 and updated the Staking mechanism to version 4.0 to provide more incentives for partner nodes who remarkably contribute to the IOST ecosystem.In addition, we will further strengthen the connection with the node partners in 2020, and hold at least 2 partner node conferences every quarter for everyone to communicate with each other and make progress together. We are sure that in 2020, the IOST partner node program will gain greater success, with more contributions, and more new partners.With excellent rewards for nodes and their voters, we have demonstrated the high benefits that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can deliver.

IOST Cofounder Terry’s Inte...

IOST Cofounder Terry’s Interview on Binance — Block 101 | The blockchain Ideals of a Princeton Straight-A Student (Part II)Welcome to the second part of the Block 101 interview with IOST cofounder Terry Wang!If you haven’t read part I, you can find it here.Why did you choose to join Uber after graduating?I wanted to study for a Ph.D before graduating from university until the moment I found out the course content was very far away from the practical applications in the real industrial world.UberAt the time, I was researching things like Hadoop which was based on the MapReduce technology that Google researched in 2005. Basically, what I was studying in the laboratory in 2015 was Google’s leftover from 10 years ago. It’s frustrating for researchers to work on outdated things that weren’t in the market anymore. For all the leftovers that ended up at our school, we would then do optimization and improvement, prove its theory, and issue some papers. That’s all. If I wanted to work on the most advanced technology, I had to leave school and start working in the industry.It was 2015, and two companies were particularly famous then, one was Uber and one was Airbnb. You can tell it was the hottest time for the sharing economy.Uber started from a small company and to a billion-dollar business, and then a giant with tens of billions of dollars. I thought this company would be the next Facebook or Google, as Facebook had also followed such a path in the past and finally became a giant in a very short span of time. So I thought, all I have to do is to wait for the next giant to appear. In fact, it is just similar to when you buy a coin. I was also brainwashed by it very seriously. When I was recruited, I was told that the company’s valuation would likely to double five times next month, and maybe ten times the following.I was very naive and didn’t know what bubbles were back then, this was in fact a big bubble, just like Bitcoin, and it was growing at the time. When I joined Uber, the valuation was soaring and I really felt that it could grow from a small company to a company with hundreds of billions of dollars like Facebook and Google. Although I applied for other companies at the time, such as Facebook and Google, and also got their call, I rejected everything because I was tempted by the shares, which may pump and multiply its value many times over. There were many people who thought the same as me, so I joined this company.Uber is indeed doing well now, but not as good as we thought. We thought it would become a company with hundreds of billions of dollars, but now it is “just between 60–70 billion USD”. I still have some shares, but they are not so valuable, they definitely won’t make me rich haha. It is okay because they indeed cover demand. It is very inconvenient to use a taxi in the United States so Uber does solve the travel needs of the majority of people, the same as Didi in China.How many people were working in Uber when you joined?Not so many at that time, around 900 people.Isn’t that a lot?At its peak, there were more than 10,000 people. I joined it a little bit earlier.Why did you leave Uber? Did you start IOST after leaving?Yes, I spent two and a half years at Uber. From 2015 to 2017 and then came back to China in 2017.Because Uber is based in Silicon Valley, life there is particularly boring to me. I didn’t work much time every day. In China, everyone was very hardworking, people would work 9 to 6, work overtime, and more for their goals, and that was different from Silicon Valley where the focus was on work-life balance. People focused on having their own life; work shouldn’t over-occupy your life, so everyone was not keen on working overtime.In this atmosphere, my effective programming time was only 1–2 hours a day. Being a young college graduate, I aspire to challenge myself and prove my potentials. I worked in this company for an hour or two every day and got off work especially early. I spent a lot of time on meals every day, we could stay eating & chatting for a long time. There was nothing to do at home, neither on weekends.There were 3 main/common activities in Silicon Valley:Playing board games such as werewolf, and I'm talking about playing for the whole night!Hiking, for example, for picking strawberriesGoing on a picnicI thought: “I am so young! I need to step out of such a comfort zone! I must do something else, something challenging and significant!” People around often talked about retirement rather than starting a new business or something fresh. They wanted a stable life, work in a stable company, buy a house, get married, have children, and maybe get profits off the company stocks. This was not the lifestyle I wanted in my 20s. I was especially disappointed with this and then returned home.Now I understand why you left Uber and returned to your country… So you have been in the US for a total of eight years, right?Yes, slightly more than eight years. Four years as an undergraduate, two years in the Midwest, two years in postgraduate, and then work. I also stayed at Microsoft for some time, and later at Uber.Are all Silicon Valley companies in a continuous state of retirement?Uber was not listed yet back then, so it was a relatively new company, but if you check other larger or huge companies like Google they are particularly idle, and you feel like in retirement. I would definitely not go to such a company.So, the bigger the company, the worse it isIf you are looking for competition instead of a comfortable lifestyle, looking for challenges instead of stability, looking for making an impact on the business instead of being a tiny insignificant part & climbing the career ladder of a huge organization, a young and smaller startup may be a better fit for you.So generally it is not easy to enter, but as long as you get in, you can start to retire somehow?The perks and benefits are attractive. Food, medical care, insurance, facilities, you name it, they have it. This comfort zone is just hard to get out even if you have a desire to do some other things. You need robust determination to step out of the comfort zone and do something bigger, or else, you would start to retire in this environment. I am not saying retirement a bad. It comes down to your personal lifestyle and career choices.Then it is like our state-owned/ public organizations.Many companies in Silicon Valley are like the American version of China state-owned organizations in which you barely need to work, and working for a few hours a week makes you an employee of the month.For the uninitiated, many of China’s state-owned organizations are known for their unproductivity, comfortable working hours and life long contracts.I’d love to go tho…Newer companies have higher requirements of employees whereas the older and more stable companies are more comfortable. For example, in Oracle, there's no need to innovate to create a simple database. It is enough to make a very stable database. They are very stable and it’s suitable for the government and schools, so there is no need to innovate. Their employees have little incentive to do new things and writing 500 lines of code can take them a long time, while still earning continuous cash flow.Was it because your salary was low that you didn’t enjoy the feeling of retirement?Not at all, they have attractive high wages and benefits as mentioned above. In fact, you may like this kind of life when you are old, but when you are very young, such as when I had just graduated, I felt like my life should be a bit challenging, so I really thought I should leave. I feel that I have wasted more than two years. I went back to China because this is completely different from how life is here.So you founded IOST after you returned to China in 2017. Do you think it was because of your experience in the United States what made you want to start your own business? I would love to hear the history of the development of IOST.I always wanted to start a business. My experience with bitcoin and later Ethereum made me think that I could build my own chain, and could build it well. I chose to work in an area I’m good at. In addition, 2017 seemed to be a great year to start a blockchain project, at the time, bitcoin prices rose a lot in the first half of the year.I was always drawn to this technology and the direction of blockchain and decentralization were the best among the potential businesses that I could start. At that time, the sharing economy was not doing well… Shared bicycles best days were already gone, along with shared shelves and shared umbrellas. It can be said that the bubble of the sharing economy was gradually being broken. After witnessing all this, I do feel that blockchain is better.I gathered a few friends and started the IOST project. We shared many common values like the love for technology, blockchain-related experiences, and the idea of starting a business. Since they had also finished their studies in the United States and started their own businesses too, each of us felt that China was a better opportunity for us than the United States, we went back to China together to do this project.I reviewed your previous interview recently, and there is something you said that caught my attention, “Not only POW and POS, but POB; not only ETH and EOS but also IOST”. Are your targets EOS and ETH? Do you want to do better than them?Correct, I want to do better than them. Let me briefly explain myself, it is particularly simple. When I just entered this industry and found that the biggest problem in this industry was scalability, I wanted to solve it. Sharding was back then seen as the best solution for scalability, but it doesn’t seem to be a good solution, so we didn’t work on sharding in the end. You can more or less tell that when you see so many sharding projects have failed. We feel that if we want to expand the scalability to greater levels, we must optimize the consensus. We must start with the consensus algorithm and use the best consensus algorithm to ensure security.That’s the reason why we have been working on POB all the time, we wanted to expand the scalability by optimizing the consensus algorithm to solve the biggest problem at that time. The difference between us, Ethereum and EOS can be summarized in one sentence: IOST is more scalable than Ethereum and more decentralized than EOS. Everyone knows that EOS is not so decentralized, and that actually relatively few supernodes do run the entire network.I think you have also received a lot of investment from Sequoia Capital, as well as Zhenfund and other big names.Yes, that’s correct.I must admit you guys are pretty good.You may remember that situation too. Mr. Xu Xiaoping’s speech in the dedicated blockchain group chats, claiming that he is about to enter the blockchain revolution, that everyone should embrace the blockchain, and more. Then he asked the people to not leak it, but it was well leaked lol. This actually happened after a conversation we had with Mr. Xu. After talking with us, he was very excited, and he said all I have mentioned. Mr. Xu really likes entrepreneurs who come back from the United States and our team members had all studied in the United States and then returned to China, so our background is of his favorite kind. Therefore, if you return to China from the United States to start a business, you can ask Mr. Xu for help, his knowledge and network are of great help. I think he helped us a lot.IOSTLet’s talk about IOST’s future development. I guess everyone would like to hear if there are any new trends that everyone should know about, or if there is any new stuff about to explode.Sure thing! Almost half of 2020 is gone by now, so fast.At the beginning of the year, we actually released the IOST Aircraft Carrier Plan, which is very important for IOST. I think that the crypto space has changed a lot since its beginning. It’s a new era now and it’s not an era to burn money quickly and expand, but a stage where every penny is spent in the most effective place. At this stage, I would like to emphasize that the goal of our company is to first ensure that we survive in this space and to have a sustainable & positive cash flow. Our business model has changed from the previous main 2C focus, this means, to end-users, to the current consortium chain + public chain 2B + 2C joint development. So in addition to optimizing developer and user services, we have also optimized enterprise services. I think that this business model is more innovative and expansible.IOST’s One-Stop Blockchain-as-a-Service Platform is Open!Secondly, for the partner node plan, we have upgraded the IOST Staking mechanism to v3.0, shortening the voting freeze time from 7 days to 3 days, to make it more flexible. In addition, the IOST partner node contribution reward mechanism has also been upgraded to v2.0, we have improved the contribution rewards to the partner nodes who really do things and work to make the IOST ecosystem more prosperous every day.For on-chain governance, we have analyzed many other public chains. The conclusion is that the governance mechanisms of most chains are not too good, mainly reflected in the low participation rate. Most of the governance mechanisms of other blockchains are related to technology, but our governance mechanism is not only limited to technology but also points related to the entire project. For example, you can propose your design, which can contain design proposals of the entire chain, including the node mechanism, operating mechanism, incentive plan, and all development plans. Everyone can participate in our governance mechanism, which is our main focus.For technology, we are working on cross-chain solutions with our partner nodes, and we expect it to be completed for Q3. Through the IOST cross-chain transfer bridge, IOST blocks can be forwarded and mapped to different blockchains through the relay chain. For users, the implementation of IOST cross-chain transfer bridge can achieve cross-chain asset transfer, so as to use other applications in the relay chain, such as DeFi, DEX, Staking services, etc., while enjoying the security brought by the blockchain, improve the liquidity of assets. For developers, IOST cross-chain transfer bridge can realize inter-chain smart contracts interoperability, reduce multi-chain development costs, achieve multi-chain user sharing, and data interconnection.And last, but not least, the NFTs. In April this year, we officially released the IOST NFT standard, launched a platform that supports NFT asset transactions, and docked different wallets to support IOST NFT assets, and began a comprehensive layout of the IOST NFT ecosystem. In addition, we also officially released a year-long NFT event. We will issue a limited number of IOST official NFT assets within a year. Users can collect these rare NFT assets through participating in activities. This is a long-term incentive plan that lets users understand NFT and have a sense of participation in the IOST ecosystem.About Node ProgramIOST Node Program v2.0IOST Node Program v2.0 Is Out Now!IOST New Staking Mechanism Now Unveiled!IOST New Staking Mechanism Now Unveiled!About Cross-chainIOST X Liebi | Interoperability Breakthrough With The Launch Of Cross-Chain BridgeIOST X Liebi | Interoperability Breakthrough With The Launch Of Cross-Chain BridgeAbout NFTIOST Unveils Official IRC-721 NFT StandardIOST Unveils Official IRC-721 NFT StandardIn conclusion, in 2020 we are and will be working on the enterprise services and partner nodes, the upgrade our entire ecosystem and mainnet, the optimization of user services, and governance, including the addition of new technologies.I would like to know your opinion of Chinese public chains that you think are interesting and talk about their advantages and disadvantagesThere are quite a few Chinese public chains. Let me give you some examples. For example Bytom blockchain, their target is quite different from IOST’s as they target the financial market. We are more similar to Ethereum, which is multi-functional, rather than digging deep in a certain field. So, compared to Bytom, which only targets the financial market, we do games, tools for entrepreneurs and ordinary users, or involve many kinds of applications, so this is a big difference between IOST and Bytom.For other public chains, such as NEO, Ontology, Vechain, etc.. Our basic model is just different, because they are dual-currency/token, while we are a single token public chain, we only have IOST and it fuels the entire ecosystem. It is the fuel that allows the entire ecosystem to operate instead of adding another kind of token as an incentive to run it, this is actually a big difference.Are there any competitors of IOST out there?Yes, of course. I’d say that all the projects I have mentioned are all somehow competitors of IOST and of course, there are other projects from out of China that should be considered too. For DApps for example, there are many projects that work on them too. If you check the rankings, we are probably #4 out there, #1 place belongs to Ethereum, then EOS and then TRON. DApp development is something that we value very much in IOST, and we have around 70 DApps now in our ecosystemSomeone is asking how is your portfolio? Is it convenient for you to share with us?I believe in the concept of blockchain so I don’t have much money in my bank account. I keep a few thousand yuan a month for living and the rest of my money goes to my portfolio. I know this might sound crazy, but I am really optimistic, and I think this is something that will multiply its value many times in 3–5 years. I know that it’s hard to find the right one, but so it is in the traditional stocks or other!Also, there are other reasons why I invest in blockchain. First, I have no idea about stocks, and second, I haven’t found any other particularly good thing to invest in. Even if you tell me about stocks such as Tencent’s stock, Amazon’s stock, I feel their valuations don’t represent their real value. On the other hand, I don’t think Bitcoin has reached its maximum levels, so I am quite convinced that a lot is about to come. I hold a lot of bitcoins, and Ethereums, and actually all kinds of leading coins and tokens from different generations in my portfolio. I really like decentralization, so I don’t hold only one type, I hold many kinds of tokens and coins.I think that we have answered the main questions from the audience by now, thank you for answering so many questions and for sharing your experiences with us Terry.Thank you Yingge, I’m especially excited about being here, and for finally seeing you “face to face”.Would you like to share anything else with us?If there is any chance, we might share more stories with the audience in another Block 101 interview. We can arrange another in the future, I love to work with Binance.That sounds good, so we will leave it here today.OK, thank you.Today’s live broadcast is over, thank you all for your support of Binance Block 101, thank you all, bye.Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

HitHub Launches “Global Blockchain Open-Source Node Program” with IOST being the First Strategic PartnerIOST has officially become the first strategic partner among the top-tier blockchain projects in the “Global Blockchain Open-Source Node Program” by HitHub- the decentralized incentive community for developers.HitHub launches this program with the vision to empower open-source ecology and offer innovative solutions to challenges faced by developers such as product security management, capability assessment, timely value delivery, rapid implementation of ideas, and proprietary authentication.HitHub, in conjunction with IOST, will migrate and copy codes, put custody on HitHub and provide assistance in building public chain networks through IOST’s advanced technologies. Different from GitHub’s centralized code custody, codes custodial on HitHub will be stored and custodial on decentralized networks such as IPFS, with improvement in both security and level of decentralization.With the expertise in balancing scalability, decentralization, and security, IOST will provide HitHub with technical consulting and support on how to avoid the excessive sacrifice of censorship resistance while improving scalability. The two organizations will carry out more in-depth discussions and joint development on areas such as optimizing IPFS decentralized storage structure and cross-chain proprietary authentication etc.About HitHub- Building decentralized & incentivized developer community protocolHitHub, a coworking community teamed by autonomous developers, dedicates itself in building a credible and decentralized coworking development infrastructure to carry a fair market of developers’ works, from which a transparent credit reference system for developers could be built to ultimately form a community of developers, by developers and for developers.By applying smart contacts and decentralized storage technologies such as IPFS, HitHub is to reconstruct solutions for whole-new code custody, copyright protection and value bearer.As an open-source community core formed by developers, HitHub offers token incentives for contributors who participate in content-making and technical development. Developers can get access to Hit Network by downloading HitHub and connecting to back-up servers setup by HitHub team. In order to facilitate the migration and use for developers, HitHub will introduce an easy-to-use web page platform HitHub to simplify the application of HitHub Protocol and provide cloud services for developers. Developers will then be able to build new Repo and obtain the corresponding Hash on HitHub easily. If other developers need to visit this Repo, they will only need to trace the corresponding Hash from the DHT (Decentralized Hash tab) to clone or fork. Every code update will produce new Repo Hash which will be administered and stored by HitHub.Official Website: https://hitchain.org/Twitter: https://twitter.com/HitHub_officialJoin The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

BSN Selects IOST’s Shanyiou...

On June 23, 2020, the Blockchain Service Network (BSN) officially announced that the Shanyiou charity information publicity platform under Aiou Technology (IOST’s Enterprise Arm) has been selected as its Official Designated Application. Among all the applications submitted by BSN’s qualified developers, IOST’s Shanyiou application stands out and has been chosen as the only designation application in the BSN’s Public Welfare & Charity category.BSN is China’s first national consortium that seeks to leverage the benefits of blockchain technology to provide a cross-network, cross-regions, and cross-institutional global distributed ledger technology service infrastructure. BSN was initiated by Chinese State Information Center (SIC), and jointly developed by major China’s state-run telecom China Mobile and the Chinese government-supported payment card network China UnionPay, and Red Date Technology.On April 2020, IOST Enterprise Edition- Aiou Technology has officially become a qualified developer of China’s national consortium chain, the blockchain-based service network (BSN).Official Notice from BSNShanyiou Picked as Official BSN ApplicationSince its launch, the BSN has received widespread attention from users and a huge demand for blockchain applications. In order to solve the problem of supply and demand mismatch in the industry and provide high-quality blockchain applications for the users, the BSN Alliance has launched an official designated blockchain application mechanism referred to as “ BSN Official Designated Application”.Based on the needs of the end customers and the usual distribution of products in the industry, the developer committee of the BSN Development Alliance has set 14 general blockchain application categories and 1 “other” category, account for a total of 15 blockchain application categories. The classification covers supply chain, finance, judicial certificate storage, public welfare & charity, anti-counterfeiting traceability, and other aspects. It is planned to choose excellent blockchain product solutions from “BSN Qualified Developers” and include them as Official Apps.BSN targets for excellent and representative applications in the industry. After the review by the Developer Committee, the best applications will be recommended as a BSN official designated blockchain application and widely recommended in various channels of BSN.On June 23, 2020, BSN officially announced that the Shanyiou charity information publicity platform under Aiou Technology has been taken as an official designated application under the Public Welfare & Charity Category, and will work together with Aiou Technology to provide high-quality blockchain solutions for government and enterprises.Shanyiou Platform x BSN to empower charity and welfareIn February 2020, in the fight against Covid-19, IOST Enterprise Arm- Aiou Technology launched Shanyio charity information disclosure platform based on blockchain technology, in conjunction with Ningbo and Changsha local governments, the China Enterprise Federation and China Software Association, to promote the transparency of charity organizations and contribute to the prevention and control of the pandemic. Numerous institutions are on the Aiou information disclosure platform. Whenever a particular individual or organization wishes to donate materials or funds to a certain institution, they just need to register on the platform, and then they will be able to see the all donation details and also material reception and distribution processes details.IOST vs CoronaVirus: AIOU’s Charity Information Disclosure Platform Officially LaunchedTraditional charities are usually inefficient, insufficiently open & transparent and slow & questionable in the matter of distribution. Their credibility was further compromised due to the case of Wuhan RedCross organization. Through IOST Enterprise Edition’s Shanyiou platform, users can view the summary information, the status of current donations and expenditures in real-time. The entire process is completely transparent, traceable, and cannot be tampered.Notably, at present, the measured peak of TPS on Shanyiou is close to one million, and the platform supports hundreds of millions of data uploads. Nearly 100 members from the China Enterprise Confederation and China Software Association have joined Shanyiou, helping to provide effective information disclosure for the source and distribution of donated materials from more than 20 provinces and cities in China. Whether from the aspect of maturity, the stability, the technical perspective — the tools, tutorials, community, ecosystem, etc. or from the non-technical perspective, Shanyiou is far a leading platform and very convenient for enterprises to access, integrate and develop.The launch of Shanyio was a success and attracted widespread mainstream media attention and reports such as from People’s Daily Online, Xinhuanet, and Tencent.Blockchain is a great tool to improve charity, it is the perfect technology for promoting data sharing, optimizing business processes, reducing operating costs, improving collaboration efficiency, and building a credible system, etc. It can better expose the charity and public welfare process and create an environment where public welfare is truly free and for everyone.Shanyiou Charity Information Publicity Platform was born due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, but will not die with the pandemic. Shanyiou will remain to help IOST with its mission to leverage blockchain technology to empower the charity and public welfare industry. In the future, we will work with BSN to provide high-quality blockchain solutions for government and enterprises and promote the transparent development of the charity industry.As reported, BSN is developed based on Hyperledger Fabric, the most widely used consortium chain infrastructure in the world. As a member of Hyperledger, IOST Enterprise Edition- Aiou Technology has vast accumulated experience in government-enterprise jointly developed projects. By capitalizing on its six-core technological advantages — Multi-could support, Multi-chain support, Permission management, Smart contracts, Privacy protection, and Consensus Mechanism, IOST Enterprise Edition will provide significant inputs to the BSN Development alliance and usher in a new era of a scalable and efficient blockchain-driven economy…………………………………………………………………………..BSN Selects IOST’s Shanyiou Platform as Official Designated Application was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Japan Political Party to Ad...

Political voting has a big potential application for blockchain technology. Several political parties around the world have tried out voting via blockchain, with Japan’s Sanseito to be the latest to join the fold.Japanese political party- SANSEITO has implemented GUILD VOTING, a digital voting application developed and provided by PHI- an IOST core community leader and developer in Japan. IOST’s smart contract will guarantee vote counting and voting mechanism, result storage, and data reliability.For a collective and informed decision-making process, the voting framework must be mutually agreed upon by both the main organizations and their participants. This design of the voting system needs to ensure that the vote outcome should not act as a final consensus but rather, as one of the key reference data or factors for the consensus process. At the moment, Blockchain technology can be the best solution to be implemented and to guarantee data transparency and tamper-proof.SANSEITO — The Political Party and A Thank TankThe party’s policy revolves around community engagement in which the members’ voices and ideas are highly valued as just like the board members. Local problems are considered, examined, and tackled in the community. SANSEITO creates a mechanism for local voices to be heard and aims to bring their ideas widespread beyond their local community and to other parts of the nation. URL: https://www.sanseito.jp/SANSEITO aims to create a political environment in which their supporters are empowered to join, solve and lead the political issues in the country, which aligns with IOST’s governance direction that focuses on decentralization and partner nodes’ critical involvement in the network.The party has been expanding rapidly due to the growth of geographically dispersed party members and supporters. This expansion requires a practical and optimal solution for performing the entire decision-making process online. GUILD Voting system fits into the puzzle as the best digital voting to assist in the decision-making process of organizations with various constituent factors.GUILD VOTING, which utilizes IOST blockchain technology, supports about 5,000 members and supporters of SANSEITO who work together and make policy proposals for the organization.With a user-friendly interface, you can set parameters such as agenda creation/suggestion, voting format (YES/NO or selection), and participation rate and voting rate required for approval.URL: https://guild-project.org/en/GUILD provides a framework for operating an autonomous decentralized organization online and proposes a new way of project-based organization. GUILD VOTING is one of the organization management functions that the PHI team is working towards. GUILD VOTING will benefit and improve the overall governance of your organization, groups, and communities to the next level.About PHI Inc.A professional group of developers who design organizational reforms and systems around the philosophy of the Distributed Autonomous Organization (DAO) and a leading partner node of IOST in Japan.

Genesis | 3rd Anniversary o...

Dear IOST community,Today — June 19, 2020, marks the third anniversary of IOST. 3 years on a wild journey with many ups and downs for a new startup, and here we are- leading and creating a revolutionary era for public chains!Let's take a trip down memory lane of the past 3 years and open a new chapter with us!Founded in June 2017 by a group of young and aspiring entrepreneurs, IOST started our journey with the release of the whitepaper. Following this momentum, we quickly built our strong technical team, our community, and get listed in three major exchanges: Huobi, OKEx, and Binance within just one month.A full 6 months ahead of schedule, IOST mainnet- our core infrastructure went live. IOST mainnet has been maintained, updated, and optimized by IOST innovative technical team on a regular basis. From Olympus v1.0.0 to Olympus v3.3.5, the mainnet is more secure, easy to use, fast, decentralized, and highly scalable. IOST’s original & unique Proof of Believability (PoB) consensus mechanism enables horizontal scalability and high throughput. Notably, the peak value of TPS can reach 8000, the number of network transactions broke 370 million and growing, and the block height has surpassed 80 million. Alongside the revolutionary consensus mechanism, the V8 Javascript used as a core smart contract execution language ensures the mainnet’s performance, accuracy and security while making it easily accessible for developers to write contracts on IOST.The overwhelming success of IOST was reflected in the latest ranking in the CCID Global Public Blockchain Technology Assessment Index, which is issued by the China Center for Information and Industry Development, under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. IOST topped the basic technology sub-index with a score of 108.7 and took fourth place in the overall ranking. This is another step up in our global ranking for the second time consecutively.At the end of 2018, we embarked on the IOST Node Programme. Playing a crucial role in the IOST ecosystem, our nodes community has now grown to over 400 global partner nodes, with over 4.4 billion IOST voted. IOST constantly ranks as the top staking economy in the global comprehensive index, while our global partner nodes continue to push forward developments in numerous aspects such as bringing popular DApps, highly playable blockchain games, practical and easy-to-use developer tools, professional and in-depth industry analysis. Moving towards more decentralization, an on-chain governance system is initiated and will take effect from July 2020, to empower our nodes in taking the leading role of IOST.The tremendous effort and dedication of our nodes, team, and community have made it possible for IOST to become the big 4 public chain project with a rich user base and real applicability alongside Ethereum, EOS, and Tron, in just a month after the mainnet went live. 500,000 community members, over 20 countries worldwide, and over 400 nodes, top staking economy, and what’s more?The multi-sector growth strategy of IOST set forth as we engaged numerous industries that might leverage blockchain technology and at the same time promote the development of the IOST robust ecosystem. Notably, we entered in-depth collaborations with the global drone industry leader Ehang, the Japanese government and Japan’s largest state-owned power plant, both traditional and blockchain gaming developers, the well-known medical institution in Japan- Pracs, and many others in the Internet of Things, energy, blockchain gaming, and medical care areas in order to accelerate the innovation and development of blockchain. The launch of IOST Enterprise Edition Aiou Technology & BaaS platform aligned with our growth strategy and officially opens enterprise-level business blockchain solutions to a variety of sectors, thus unlocking the full potential of blockchain in reshaping these industries.IOST’s initiatives to strengthen strategic ties with governments and enterprises continue to gain ground. We have successfully inked key partnerships with the Enterprise Singapore, IMDA-The Government Body Regulating Infocomm and Media In Singapore, the Singapore Blockchain Research Institute, the Fujimi City Government of Japan, the China Software Industry Association, the China Enterprise Confederation, AWS China, HyperLedger, and the University of Zurich.To expand globally, meeting compliance requirements by governments should not be understated. IOST gained the mainstream media attention after our co-founder Terry Wang appeared on China’s national TV and invited to China People’s Great Hall to give a special speech; In Indonesia, BAPPEBTI- the Commodities and Futures Trading Regulatory Agency invited IOST to become an Indonesian blockchain technology consultant. In 2020, we will use this momentum to speed up the compliance progress in countries such as Japan, South Korea, the United States, and Singapore.Our momentous achievement was made possible through the unwavering efforts of the IOST nodes, IOST investors, IOST developers, and the IOST community. IOST continues to grow and shows no signs of slowing down, and that means more good news and development to come. Stay tuned and unlock a new era of public chain and unlimited future potentials with us!On this special occasion, we also want to give back to all the supporters of IOST with an NFT Event in which 1000 IOST global fans will receive a special NFT “Genesis” Badge each.Sincerely, the IOST team.Genesis | 3rd Anniversary of IOST, Entering A New Era of Public Chain was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Coin Voyage Is Live| C...

Last summer, the first Three Kingdoms themed multiplayer RPG strategy blockchain game, IOST Crypto Sangguo, was launched. For a long time, Sangguo was on the top rank of all the DApp explorer sites.Now, a year has passed, and if you thought that the team was on vacancies, you are definitely wrong… They have been working day and night on a new game. Hang the sails, ride the waves!This summer. The same team is bringing us another masterpiece… The world’s first nautical themed blockchain strategy game… Coin Voyage!Ride the waves with us and explore the treasures from the sea!Coin Voyage is the world’s first nautical-themed blockchain strategy game (ETH and IOST cross-blockchain). In this game, players recruit legendary navigators and pirates to conquer unknown islands, collect wealth, and create their own invincible fleet.CharactersThe game is free to play, and anyone can obtain gold coins and various items on the blockchain through game behaviors at zero cost, including but not limited to resources, goods, equipment, and ships. The team does not sell the equipment, nor do any pre-mining, the only profit-making activity is selling rare heroes.Game resources and equipmentGold and major items will be issued in unlimited quantities, with the goal of reaching millions of users.

This mechanism will promote more decentralization in the governance and healthy growth of the IOST ecosystem.Proposal ProcessRound 1: Proposal submission periodTop 30 nodes by votes and contribution scores (to be explained later) are eligible to initiate a proposalNodes initiate a proposal and fill in the proposal form.There is no cap for the number of proposals submitted every quarter.Round 2: Initial Screening PeriodThe first month of each quarter will be the showcase period to announce the submitted proposals and conduct an initial screeningA proposal has to pass this first round of initial screening to enter the final roundAll elected nodes will each have 1 vote. If more than 50% of the elected partner nodes agree to a proposal, that proposal will enter the voting process; otherwise, it will be withdrawn.*All elected partner nodes must vote to participate in the construction of the IOST ecosystem; otherwise, they will lose the qualification to receive the contribution rewards for the quarter.Round 3: Final Voting PeriodA. The 2nd to 3rd month of each quarter will be the voting period. When yes votes exceed 66.6%, the proposal is approved.B. The IOST Foundation has veto power, and the proposal rejected by the foundation will automatically re-initiate the voting process. There is one exception, that is when yes votes exceed 80%, the proposal will automatically pass regardless of the IOST Foundation’s vote.Note: The amount of voting right one node depends on its staking volume and its contribution to the ecosystem. Voting rights will be updated once every quarter. Within the quarter, changes in the node’s staking volume will not affect its voting right.How is voting right distributed among nodes?Voting right is divided into 3 parts:Voting right of the IOST foundation + Voting right of nodes based on staking volume+ Voting right of nodes based on contribution tier ranking1. Voting Rights by The IOST FoundationIn 2020 Q3, when the on-chain voting first starts, the foundation will hold 30% of the total voting right and then it decreases by 1% every quarter until reaching 15%, the fixed proportion.1. From the second quarter after the implementation of this new mechanism, the foundation will evenly distribute 1% of the votes to the elected partner nodes. This process will happen until the 15th quarter, in which the foundation will stop distributing voting rights and keep a fixed amount of 15%.2. Foundation has veto power. When a proposal has more than 66.6% of the votes but is rejected by the foundation, it will automatically initiate a new round of votes. If it gets more than 80% of the votes, the proposal will pass.In the 10th quarter, the foundation’s voting rights will only account for 20%. This means the total voting rights of the community and partner nodes will exceed 80%, hence a higher degree of decentralization.3. In the 15th quarter, the foundation will only have 15% of the voting right.2. Staking-Based Voting Rights by NodesNodes will initially have 35% of the voting rights based on staking volume and then an 0.5% quarterly increment until reaching 42.5% of voting right.The staking-based voting power calculation is similar to the income tax calculation.Example: Let’s assume that there are only 3 elected nodes: A, B, and C in IOST ecosystem. A has 120M IOST, B has 40M and C has 8M。The voting right based on staking volume of node A is:10 million*1 + 10 million*0.8 + 20 million*0.6 + 60 million*0.4 + 20 million*0.2 = 58 millionThe voting right based on staking volume of node B is:10 million*1 + 10 million*0.8 + 20 million*0.6 = 30 millionThe voting right based on staking volume of node C is:8 million*1 = 8 millionNode A voting rights = 58 million/ (58 million + 30 million + 8 million) * 35% = 21.145%On the first day of each round of proposal, the system will take snapshots & allocate the voting right to partner nodes;3. Contribution-Based Voting Rights by NodesVoting right for nodes based on contribution will be 35% initially and then an 0.5% quarterly increase until reaching 42.5% voting rights.How to calculate voting right based on contribution:Every time you get tier 1, you will get 8 contribution pointsEvery time you get tier 2, you will get 4 contribution pointsEvery time you get tier 3, you will get 2 contribution pointsEvery time you get tier 4, you will get 1 contribution pointEvery time you get tier 5, you will get 0.5 contribution point1. Nodes who have gained contribution rewards in the past will get voting right based on contribution points according to the above rules.2. Contribution points from 2019 Q1 will be taken into consideration and accumulated, and will not be cleared.3. Eg. Node A’s contribution-based voting right =contribution points of node A / total number of contribution points * 35%4. There are approximately 1,500 contribution points in total since 2019 Q1 with about 300 additional contribution points increased every quarter. Hence, if a node doesn’t continue to contribute, its contribution-based voting right will be eventually diluted.5. Partners nodes who don’t gain contribution tiers will not have voting rights based on contribution points.6. The number of contribution points and the voting rights held by the nodes will be calculated on the first day of each round of on-chain voting.Notes1. The total voting right for a node = voting right based on staking volume + voting right based on contribution points;2. There may be more than one proposal per quarter. Voting right for a node won’t reduce when it votes for any proposal within the quarter.3. IOST plans to implement the on-chain voting system on July 1 and keep improving it.Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

New IOST Node Contribution ...

In December 2018, the IOST Node Program was officially launched. For more than a year, the IOST Node Program has operated steadily and achieved great success worldwide. Developers, DApp development teams, exchanges, mining pools, media companies, investment institutions, communities, KOL… More than 400 node partners have made active contributions to the development of the IOST ecosystem in their respective fields.During this period, IOST has also continuously optimized the partner node plan. The vote freezing period has been shortened from 7 to 3 days, increased the contribution rewards, and fixed the number of participants.And now, considering the interests of all parties and in order to give even more incentives to partner nodes who really contribute to the ecosystem, we have made new adjustments to the contribution reward system. The following is version 4.0 of the IOST Staking mechanism.Changes:The new changes will be implemented on July 1st. The contribution rewards that are based on the share of votes will be moved to the contribution rewards that are based on the contribution ranking to better compensate nodes who make significant contributions to the ecosystem.In total, 105M IOST will be reallocated from rewards based on votes into rewards based on contribution for nodes.Node Contribution Rewards Per TierAssuming that there are 91 days in a quarter, with the number of partner nodes in each tier reaching the maximum, and 20 nodes in tier 5.Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

IOST Cofounder Terry’s Inte...

IOST Cofounder Terry’s Interview on Binance — Block 101 | The blockchain Ideals of a Princeton Straight-A Student (Part I)On May 15, 2020, IOST cofounder Terry was invited to Block 101 for a video conference interview with Yingge from Binance.9 years living in the United States, Princeton University graduate Terry Wang was once a programmer at tech giants Uber and Microsoft. Returning to China to kickstart with his own business- a world well-known public chain IOST, Terry has never given up his dream to make blockchain mainstream in the world.This summer, Terry will be lecturing the students from the University of Zurich about blockchain technology.He once mined dozens of bitcoins in 2012, sold it for $7.55 to invite friends for a meal, and gave the rest to students in the department he was part of. In the past 15 years, more than 10,000 Ethereum have been mined in his school laboratory and sold afterward for $9.He used to keep only a few thousand yuan a month for food and invested the rest in Bitcoin, but he felt that halving Bitcoin was speculation. Bitcoin is not the same as other commodities. Its supply and demand relationship has not yet determined its price so hard.Referring to IOST’s “Aircraft Carrier Plan”, he highlighted: “Aiou Technology is a blockchain platform that provides enterprise-level infrastructure and promotes blockchain technology to multiple industries on the Business side as well as application scenarios on the Customer-side. It is open to cooperate with established enterprises, government departments, and developers to jointly explore the application of blockchain technology.”Recap of the interview | Block 101 guest: TerryYingge: Could you share about your work experience in Silicon Valley?Terry: Valuable experience, however not the best fit for me. Best quality treatment, comprehensive compensation & benefits, and the opportunity for further career development for top employees. However, it is a loop that is hard to break and get out of. I only needed to work for a short time each day, which is particularly comfortable and suitable for retirement, but it is wasn’t suitable for me.The bosses give the best feed for the best “cows” working in it, the best quality treatment, the most comprehensive benefits, and the opportunity for further development. You are allowed to write code if you’re good, in this environment, you are like a cow that can’t get out, and just milk the boss after eating the food. INext, I would like to introduce you to the guests who are here today. Everyone says that Terry is more handsome in real life than in the poster, and I think so too. As the co-founder of the well-known IOST public chain project, would you like to briefly introduce yourself with a sentence or two?Hello everyone, I am the co-founder of IOST and have been working on this project for more than three years now, starting since I came back to China. Right now, the mainnet has been launched and working for more than one year and the ecosystem is gradually improving & growing.Living in the United States for almost 9 years, I was a Princeton University graduate and followed by becoming a computer programmer in Uber and Microsoft. Returning to China in 2017, I quickly started my own business in Beijing and founded IOST with a few good friends. Until now, after going through the ups and downs of the market, IOST has still survived. There will be many hard battles in the future, but we are prepared to fight these battles.Today, it is my honor to be invited by Binance to this live broadcast interview with Yingge which I haven’t had the chance to do in the past. I enjoy the format Block 101 is done.Do you admire someone in the crypto space? Every time I ask this question, my guests will say Satoshi Nakamoto.Yes.Don’t say Satoshi Nakamoto, or I ’ll have nothing new to say, hahaha.Professor Zhang Shousheng. He happened to be our investor. I had the honor to meet him once in Beijing because his office is in Huamao. I admire his insights, his ideas and scientific literacy, and his care for us the juniors. He himself is already famous and successful in both the blockchain space as well as other spaces.Professor Zhang ShoushengWhen I first shared some ideas about IOST with him, he commented about the problem in a pinnacle, brought in his philosophical ideas, and rich experiences to help IOST. Simple is better- as he would have put it; Our system’s design was pointed out to be too complicated at the beginning.He said that this system would definitely not succeed in this environment so he helped us make a lot of cuts. He also highlighted that the operation of such a system must rely on an extremely concise set of principles and algorithms. Professor Zhang Shousheng’s recommendations were valuable, encompassing, and at that time very touching to us.It’s very particularly heartbreaking for me that he passed away at Stanford later.What is your dream?It’s not easy to say. I wish that blockchain becomes mainstream!First, I’d love to see the day the market value of blockchain can at least exceed Apple, its net worth is 1 trillion, and the whole blockchain is now only from 2 to 3 billion US dollars; I also hope that blockchain’s market value can exceed gold which is around 8 trillion.Now when people talk about blockchain, they are still talking about the crypto space, the chain space, and the mining space. These words prove that the blockchain is particularly niche and not widely accepted. If an industry is really deeply rooted in people’s hearts, such as the Internet industry, they would not say that you are in this or that space, because no one can live without it. Hopefully, one day, the blockchain can become a daily life thing without any niche concept.Second, the application of blockchain. All blockchain applications are called DApps and/or decentralized applications. I particularly want this concept to be more friendly and familiar, to be called applications and APP instead of DApp. Simple is better.Let’s move on to the next topic. You didn’t say exactly when you entered the crypto space. Why did you enter the crypto space? Did someone introduce it to you or did you get into it by yourself?Bitcoin was easily accessible to a computer science student like me because whenever you searched on the Internet about testing servers, running programs, making optimizations, and so on, the concept of bitcoin could be easily found.In my second year of college in 2012, during a very boring summer vacation, I had a lot of fierce competitions among the students in our laboratory and I was determined to win it.I played with bitcoin and wanted to share something very cool for everyone.At that time, bitcoin was particularly cheap, about only $7.50. Let’s be honest, you don’t pay too much attention to a $ 7.50 thing. When I mined some bitcoins, all I thought of was to sell and invite friends for a meal, instead of holding them. $ 7.5 dollars can get you an ordinary meal in the United States, when a good meal is 20 US dollars. You could easily mine this amount and then spend it. Therefore, even if you had bitcoin at that time, it would be difficult to hold it till the present. At that time, everyone in our laboratory was mining a lot but sold for 7 or 8 dollars quickly.At that time, did you feel like it was a game coin?It might not even be as good selling as the game coins. For game coins, it’s enough to have a good game account to sell game coins, while for mining, each bitcoin consumes so much energy, and the stable output was only $10, $20 in one to two weeks, just for a meal, that’s it.The title of the live broadcast is The blockchain ideals of a Princeton Straight-A student. Were there other things related to blockchain during your college times?In my first 2 years, I was studying at the University of Minnesota- a school in the Midwest, a state close to Illinois, the coldest in the United States. How cold is it? It will reach an extreme cold of minus 50 degrees and 60 degrees. In winter, if you go outside with a bouquet of flowers, when you come back, you will find that the flowers are frozen to death. Walking around will make a bunch of flowers wither.A cold place has the advantage when it comes to building data centers because the biggest problem of servers is to dissipate heat. This is why Google and Amazon would build its database in extremely cold places. For example, Google has most of its servers in Iceland, because Iceland is extremely cold, and some companies build their database at the bottom of the sea. Therefore, it is a very suitable place for building a data center, saving a lot of money to solve the problem of heat dissipation. I knew at that time that Google built a database in Iceland because they didn’t have to deal with heat dissipation issues, and that could save them tens of millions of dollars a year.The cold environment in Minnesota is perfect for gathering big data centers from all the United States. There is even a company in the United States that specializes in big data called Gray that, based in Minnesota. When I was in my second year of college, there were many machines in the school data center, which were free to use for us.My parents are both university teachers, and under their influence, my dream at that time was to be a doctor. If I wanted to apply for a better school, I had to do experiments during the summer vacation. I was working in the laboratory and doing research for some professors, and good professors will always have many students following him, everyone wants to have better grades and wants the professor to see you so that he recommends you to a doctorate in a better school.In a big public school like mine, there are usually many Chinese and Indian students. However, in my case, I was the only Chinese in the laboratory while the rest were all Indian students. They had strong teamwork and many of them work in the technology field. As they would always team up and help each other, things would become more difficult for me.With all these happening, I aimed to work on something fancier during that summer vacation, something more practical than theoretical, to stand out from the rest of the students and catch my mentor’s attention.It happened that, first, someone was mining bitcoin in the laboratory, and second, the machines consumed a lot of energy, so a question at that time was how to optimize this machine? That is to say, how to mine more Bitcoin with the same energy consumption, or how to reduce energy consumption mining the same amount. In order to solve this matter, I searched for a lot of information during the summer vacation. At that time, as there weren’t so many machines to buy, I made a large-scale laboratory machine, built my own server, installed the client, and then ran this machine. After some research, I finally found that there were some ways to optimize efficiency, for example, by optimizing the Bitcoin script.This became a class activity later, which was well-received and appreciated by my mentor. I also mined a lot of bitcoins, but as I have said earlier, bitcoin was probably worth $7 or $8 at the time, with the highest value of $ 11, and I was also under pressure as a teaching assistant, I gave dozens of bitcoins as gifts to the students of our department. As tricky as it sounds, the gifts of bitcoins helped me in peer rating (Yes, I admit to being a highly competitive student).They must be truly thankful thoWhat’s more pitiful is that those bitcoins are still in the school’s machine, and are left forgotten there. Because the machines were not ours, and the computers we used were also borrowed from school. I remember returning the computer with my mined bitcoins to the school when I left school. f anyone finds that computer, let him know there are actually a lot of bitcoins in it. I don’t think I can find it because it happened so long ago.That was unluckyBut no one expected it at that time. It was totally unimaginable that bitcoin would reach thousands of dollars in value. At that time, the most intuitive feeling of Bitcoin was that it could be exchanged for two drinks or a meal. You wouldn’t expect to store a drink for a few years, and for it to multiply its value thousands of times.Although I haven’t lived those times, I still think it is a huge loss.Hahaha, I regret it so much, but later, I did so many more things that I regret too, and finally found that it was difficult to avoid.What other things do you regret?Another example and this time it is about Ethereum.Princeton UniversityI was recommended by my professor to Princeton University- the number one university in the United States. The most authoritative ranking network in the United States, US News, ranks all the universities every year. Princeton and Harvard University have been ranked first for 13 consecutive years. In the past two to three years, Harvard University has fallen to second place, while Princeton has always stayed as the first, but what everyone knows is Harvard and Yale while, in fact, the number one ranking is Princeton.The school is in a very nice town with a total population of around 10,000 people, Princeton University itself brings 7,000 students. This town is an hour’s drive from New York and an hour from Philadelphia, but it’s very remote and has no people, so it is especially suitable for academics. It is quiet and conducive environment for academics activities, which was why Einstein went to Princeton in his later years.The fathers of modern computers, von Neumann and Turing are both from Princeton University. When you go to this school, you can feel that it is a very simple place, everyone is highly devoted to doing academics.Another advantage to study at Princeton University is that it is far away from commercialization. Many universities open business schools, law schools, and medical schools, these colleges are actually places that are in line with modern business society, such as Harvard University, the most famous Harvard Business School, and Harvard Medical School. Yale’s law school, Columbia’s business school, and Ivy League also have these colleges. However, in pursuit of academic excellence, Princeton opposes the establishment of disciplines close to commercialization. It is the only place without business schools, law schools, and medical schools. It is in paradise and does not want to be disturbed by these things.I met a particularly good mentor at that time, Arvind. He was once a scholar who studied Bitcoin and blockchain very early. In 2015, he started a lecture because he was an expert in this industry. He had entered the industry very early and wrote a book called “Bitcoin and Crypto Tech”. I thought to myself: “Since I have just studied Bitcoin in deep recently, this lecture will be a piece of cake for me.” In fact, there were not many requirements for graduate students. I thought it was easy to get a good score without much effort, so I naturally joined this lecture.His lessons were particularly interesting, there was no teaching material and there was nothing to learn, he would just give each student a particularly simple task — to optimize the current blockchain technology.There were around 20 students, many of them were postgraduates and some undergraduates, and we had to work in groups of 3. In this class, I met Lawrence Diao who later on also found a blockchain project and become a competitor of us, haha. His well-known project, Basecoin, in my opinion, is the most famous stablecoin project out there. Basecoin’s stability is guaranteed by an algorithm, which differs from, for example, USDT, which are collateral for US dollars. They, in Basecoin, use algorithms to ensure the stability of stablecoins instead.This project was a huge hit then, and by the time I decided to invest in it, they couldn’t allocate me anymore, because they had already received funds from the most famous investment institutions in the United States, such as HUZ, USD, and Pantera. Basecoin was one of the most beautiful projects at the time, and with a small team. When IOST started, we had to recruit a lot of people, but for Basecoin, their initial core team consisted of three people. They relied on a whitepaper and their high-quality operational capabilities and resources.In our class, we both worked on optimizations for the Bitcoin technology and blockchain technology. At that time in 2015, Ethereum had just launched and I learned about Ethereum in class when most people didn’t hear about Ethereum yet. Most students chose to do some bitcoin optimization. I have said earlier that bitcoin runs on something called a bitcoin script, but it is hard to write, so some of us would just do optimization and turn it into a modern programming language, a particularly useful tool tho.At that time, the anonymity of Bitcoin was very poor, so I chose to work in this area. It has been mentioned by many people and can be seen on the forum since it is open, and I presented it in class. The video can be found on Youtube, you can actually search for that class, it’s called “Bitcoin and Crypto Tech”, which I took in 2015, all of our homework projects in that year, are there and you can see them in this Youtube video.One friend of mine worked on something related to Ethereum. I think he was the only one in our class who did so, and that was also the first time I knew about Ethereum. The machines at the University of Minnesota were not particularly easy to use, but at Princeton University, AWS was pretty famous at that time. That is because of Bezos, founder of Amazon, who also graduated from Princeton University, he has special feelings for our school and gave our school a lot of free credit for AWS.One day, an idea came to our minds, to use these school quotas to mine Ethereum. At that time, AWS could be used for mining, whereas now it is completely forbidden, so we used the school ’s machine to mine a lot! We may have mined more than 10,000 Ethereum. You have to think that years later, at the earliest IOST fundraising, we gathered 35,000 Ethereum, and at that time, I easily mined more than 10,000 Ethereum at school. So imagine how much we had!But then, something happened in 2015, the Dao Attack, which everyone knows about. At that time, it caused the price of Ethereum to drop to $9. I remember because I sold it at an average price of about $9. I especially regret this, even more than when I sold Bitcoin since there is a big difference in the quantities I managed, dozens of Bitcoin against more than 10,000 Ethereum.And what happened next?Because of these experiences, I felt that I could do something in this field, such as creating my own public chain, instead of just optimizing other chains. Of course, it was after my experience in optimization that I slowly found out I was able to develop a chain completely independently. Later, I got myself some good partners to do this together.Another thing I would like to mention is that the class I took at that time was later converted into an online class. Now, everyone can search for that class on the Internet, it was done by my instructor at that time, it’s called “Bitcoin and Crypto Technology”. This class is now on Coursera, and if you are a member, you can take it for free. There are also some courseware and materials from the project I did at the time.There is one more thing I want to say, our university gave birth to a lot of actual projects in the blockchain industry, for example, my senpai Muneeb Ali. He felt that everyone should have a blockchain identity, so he helped all celebrities to register one.This project was transformed later in 2016 and changed its name to Blockstack. I believe many people know about it as it is now on Binance. It was a very sensational project in the United States at that time because it was further developed from One name, and it gathered the best investment companies in the United States. They are a particularly early project of YC, the best incubator in the United States, USV was also invested in this project. This person was also our colleague at the time because Princeton is a very small school, there were like one or two hundred people in the department, from which came our projects like Blockstack and BaseCoin, looking back now is an amazing thing.— — — — — — — — — — — — END OF PART I — — — — — — — — — — — — —Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

AMA Recap on Staking Econom...

Alina Yao, head of OKEx Pool was invited to conduct an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session in the IOST official telegram community on 13 May 2020, as part of the Serial AMA. Here is a summary of the AMA.Part 1: Introduction of Alina and answer to some questions regarding staking in crypto and OKEx.After a warm welcome from IOST, the AMA started with an introduction of Alina and the OKEx Pool.Hello everyone, I am Alina, the head of OKExPool. People call me SisA😜 I feel so glad to join this AMA, nice to meet you guys😀OKEx Pool is a leading comprehensive mining pool built upon the world’s famous cryptocurrency exchange OKEx, offering a one-stop mining and trading experience for users.Currently, OKEx Pool supports the mining of a plethora of PoW, PoS, and PoS-variant cryptocurrencies.Part 1, Question No1: What is staking?Interesting question! The concept of staking is closely related to the Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism, which used in many blockchains that are based on PoS or one of its many variants.In the Proof of Stake protocol, the user takes part in the consensus mechanism, and the wallets that work as staking pools, share a part of their rewards, according to your stake with them.Staking is the process where a cryptocurrency PoS (Proof of Stake) wallet stakes a sum of coins when broadcasting to the network that the transaction they are processing is true and not malicious. If the network agrees on the verdict, the verifying wallet will receive a reward in the form of coins on the associated blockchain network.In other words, you will make more money if your staked coins are larger as a percentage of the total staked coins.Part 1, Question No2: Why is staking important for OKExOKEx is the world’s leading digital asset trading platform, with a wealth of product lines such as spot trading, margin trading, futures, options, earn, cryptographic asset tools, colleges, and so on, providing one-stop services around digital assets for 20 million users around the world.Staking is one of the easiest ways to get the yield arguably. And staking is also recognized as one of the safest ways to obtain passive earnings of digital currency.The OKEx pool is an innovative pool that provides users with safe, stable, and transparent multi-currency and multi-type mining services. We encourage users to participate in staking and get a higher yield.Part 1, Question No3: How to stake IOST in OKEx?Users can use this link https://www.okex.com/pool/lock/process to access the IOST staking page of OKEx Pool.We provide 4 staking period: flexible, 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, users can choose according to their own situation. The Est. Ann. Yield : flexible-3.35%, 30 days- 4.57%, 60 days-5.71%, 90 days-7.03%.Users can stake IOST on OKEx official website or APP. In APP, for example:Step 1: open Open the OKEx APP and go to “Pool”;Step 2: go to “staking”, select “IOST”;Step 3: Enter the amount you want to stake and select a staking periodA friendly reminder, users need to transfer their assets to their Mining/Staking Account before staking.Part 1, Question No4: What is the difference between OKEx pool and OKEx staking?OKEx Pool supports the mining of a plethora of PoW, PoS, and PoS-variant assets. We continuously enhance the overall safety and stability of our mining pool, while streamlining the process of miner management to offer a better user experience. We also provide personalized customer support to resolve your issues using our services at once.We support the mining of a plethora of PoS and PoS-variant assets, including IOST, EOS, ATOM, ONT, XTZ, VSYS, CRO, DAI, and YOU.We constantly excavate quality projects.

For the staking yield, OKEx Pool distributes the revenue to users daily.We are continuing to launch a product promotion campaign to increase users’ yield.

IOST cofounder Terry was invited to an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session with more than 10k users in the OKEx official telegram community on May 6th. Here is a summary of the AMA.Part 1: Terry tackling the most FAQsAfter a warm welcome from Adam, the administrator in OKEx group, the AMA started with Terry introducing himself and IOST.A quick summary of my background. I was once a grad at Princeton University, an ex-Uber and ex-Microsoft software engineer in Silicon ValleyBeing an early Bitcoin and Ethereum miner since 2015, I was enthralled at the ways digital money was created and used as a global currency without any financial intermediaries which could transform the foundation of how the entire world economy would work. The interest was sparked and I started researching blockchain development. After working in the Bay Area for several years, I decided to go back to China to kickstart my crypto journey with IOST in 2017, and here comes IOST as you all know.Our vision is simple: to be the backbone of the new digital economy built on the blockchain.Question No.1: What was your inspiration for founding IOST?The inspiration for founding IOST came from my own experiences of developing blockchain applications in its early times.At the time, using a public blockchain for developers was costly and has high technical barriers. The network also had many limitations, such as being too slow for commercial applications to scale. I, along with Jimmy and Ray, founded IOST, to give aspiring developers a user-friendly, affordable, and enterprise-grade blockchain platform to bring their business ideas to life.Question No.2: How does IOST solve the issue of scalability, decentralization & security versus what has been done on other major competitors like Ethereum, TRON, and EOS?IOST’s unique Proof of Believability consensus is trying to solve the scalability trilemma in blockchain, which states that you can only choose two of three: scalability, decentralization, or security. In short, IOST is more decentralized than EOS and TRON while being about the same level of scalability, and being more scalable than ETH.Our Servi system enabled even the Servi node with the least number of votes among our 60+ block producers to have the opportunity to produce blocks, comparing to the 21 biggest nodes holding up the block-production spots rather unshakably in EOS and 27 super representatives in TRONProof of Believability is abbreviated as POBHow POB works: a smart points system to determine which nodes get into the node producing committee, which changes every 10 minutes. Nodes receive points based on their staking amount, and these points are used up as they produce blocks. This creates a system where all the nodes get to participate in block production (decentralized), while at the same time allowing the IOST network to reach speeds of up to 8,000 transactions per second (scalable).Question No.3: IOST has a very unique and simple staking program. How does this work and what are the benefits for voters from staking IOST on OKEx?If you are an OKEx user, you are very likely familiar with OKEx Pool staking haha.It is simply a method of earning passive income through locking your tokens(IOST here) with nodes of your choice. IOST Staking program is in the top global staking scores ranked by top research institutions for its high staking yield, the yearly staking yield could be as high as 35+%. OKEx team also frequently conducts various promotions such as double staking yield events for IOST holders.Here is a link to vote for OKex pool: https://www.iostabc.com/account/okpool?activetab=0&listtab=0&page=1&rowsPerPage=20You could use iWallet(the IOST’s chrome extension) or other well-known wallets(Cobo, TokenPocket, etc.) to vote. Make sure to not miss OKex’s promotions!Question No.4: What is the IOST Node Program and how do you engage with partner nodes?The IOST Node Program is to bring in Nodes who are invested and committed to the growth of the IOST ecosystem and community nodes are incentivized by staking rewards, contribution rewards, and block production rewards. They, can make contributions to the IOST ecosystem in many different ways, including but not limited to marketing & promotions, media publicity, integration / dApps developments, and events organization like hackathons and workshops.IOST has over 400 global nodes & we work very closely with Nodes to grow education and awareness of IOST for the mass public, build and launch innovative DApps for the global crypto community, and implement and drive practical blockchain use cases for enterprises and consumersJust recently, I personally had an online conference meeting with our Japanese nodes to discuss and clarify our directions moving forward.Every year, 840 million IOST is given out to Nodes and Voters who support these Nodes by staking. Both Nodes and Voters are rewarded with attractive returns for their support and growth of the IOST ecosystem and are incentivized to participate and contribute to the community.Question No.5: IOST keeps bringing in new amazing partnerships and big news. Which one are you most excited about and why?We have a fruitful Q1 with numerous milestones and partnerships. I’m most intrigued by the official membership of IOST Enterprise Company- Aiou Technology in the China Nationwide Blockchain Network BSN.BSN infrastructure is one of the huge plans of China to power global blockchain adoption initiated by state-run companies. We are honored to be recognized to take part in this movement!Here is the detailed version of ithttps://medium.com/iost/iost-joins-bsn-chinas-nationwide-blockchain-network-2ad5dd79bf7Question No.6: What year was 2019 for IOST? And what year is 2020 going to be?We saw multiple milestones successfully met in 2019Launched our mainnet 6 months prior to our original planReached 8000 transactions per secondTopped global staking programPartnership with key industry playersAttracted 400+ nodes in one year2020 has been busier as we are heading toA more mature blockchain ecosystem updateImprovement has been made in our Partner and Staking program.The NFT standard was launchedCross-chain bridge expected to be brought into effective by Q3 this yearTo keep yourself updated, follow IOST official channel:https://t.me/iost_announcements and join our official group chat: https://t.me/officialiosPart 2: Free Q&A sessionHigh interest and popularity towards IOST were demonstrated by OKEx community, where around 3000 questions were raised during this session. Terry selected six questions to answer as follows.Tanya GladushkaHow does IOST rate the importance of the user community? What was the IOST plan to build the user community?Very very important. I think the user community is the ground of our whole ecosystem. Without our user community, everything else we did, such as node system, dapps, wallets, education, etc. is pointless. And we have taken numerous ways to connect with our users, through different groups in all regions (differed by interests) as well as the user experiences of applications, etc.Lake By The SideEveryone knows for sure you’ve migrated to mainnet. However, there are still circulating IOST ERC20 token. Why is this so? No token swap?Token Swap has been conducted for over a year, with most major exchanges in the world supporting the IOST token swap. The left ones are some exchanges that have yet to swap with our foundation and few token holders who don’t bother to do the swap.BitcoinWhat’re the Algorithms which are used by IOST for fast, secure, and scalable transactions?Proof of Believability ConsensusRichardo PascualWhich countries/regions are the main markets that Iost is focusing on now? What is your next plan to raise awareness among the crypto community about IOST?Language-wise, English is the largest language. Country-wise, East Asian countries are among the top.From here, we would like to express our gratitude to the OKEx team for the warm welcome and the organization of the AMA session with Terry, as well as the upcoming serial promotional campaigns, as well as to the OKEx telegram community for the amazing AMA and the questions sent to Terry. As not all the questions could be answered due to the time limit, we welcome everyone who wants to know more about IOST to join us on:t.me/officialiost.me/iost_announcements on telegram.Don’t get lost, get IOST!Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk, and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

IOST Joins BSN-China’s Nati...

On April 18th, IOST Enterprise Edition Aiou Technology officially becomes a qualified developer of China nationwide blockchain network, the Blockchain-based Ser­vice Net­work BSN.BSN is China’s first nationwide blockchain network that:Backed by Chinese government policy think tank the State Information Center (SIC), and jointly developed by major China’s state-run telecom China Mobile and the Chinese government-supported payment card network China UnionPay, and Red Date TechnologyProvides a cross-network, cross-regions, and cross-institution global blockchain service infrastructureProvides developers with a public blockchain resource environment based on the Internet concept, which greatly reduces the development, deployment, operation and maintenance, interoperability, and regulatory costs of blockchain applications, so as to promote the rapid development and adoption of blockchain technology.About BSNPreviously, each participant in a traditional consortium chain application had to build and operate its own exclusive node and respective consensus mechanism. Each node needs to use a physical server or cloud service, to connect with one another through the Internet or an internal network, thereby forming an isolated blockchain application similar to a local-area network.In this traditional structure, participants need to establish a new blockchain operating environment for each consortium chain, which leads to high cost and a situation where server resources are not fully used or even completely unused. The high cost brought by deployment and maintenance is a major barrier when it comes to the development of blockchain.In addition, there is no unified technical standard for the underlying framework adopted by various LAN-type blockchain applications, thus business data is unable to interact with each other, which restricts the transformation and adoption of blockchain technology. Therefore, there is an urgent call for a public infrastructure network that is recognized by all parties in the industry.On October 15, 2019, BSN was jointly initiated by the leaders of the State Information Center, China Mobile & China UnionPay. BSN’s mission is to provide a public infrastructure network that can develop, deploy, operate & maintain, interoperate, and supervise blockchain applications at low cost.On December 1, the first BSN partner conference was held in Hangzhou in which the experts and scholars from various industries conducted an in-depth discussion of BSN’s role in the development of smart cities and the digital economy.BSN’s design and construction concept referred to the Internet’s TCP / IP protocol. BSN is a global basic network with cross-cloud, cross-framework, and cross-portal service. It aims to connect all data centers together by establishing a set of blockchain operating environment protocols. As a global public network, BSN supports both the consortium chain and the public chain underlying framework. It will be the world’s first infrastructure network independently innovated by China and controlled by the right to access the network and can be rapidly deployed around the world.The categories of BSN Members1. Cloud Service ProvidersThrough the installation of BSN public city node software, a cloud service provider can connect its cloud service resources (CPU, storage and bandwidth) to the BSN and sell the service on it;2. Underlying blockchain framework providers (specifically consortium chain)After adopting corresponding standards, blockchain framework service can be deployed to the service network for developers to select.3. Portal providersPortal providers can quickly and cost-effectively establish a BaaS platform on the service network in the existing cloud service portal or developer portal, and provide customers with blockchain application development, deployment, and operation services based on the service network.IOST Enterprise Edition- Aiou Technology to Join BSNOn April 18, 2020, IOST Enterprise Edition — Aiou Technology obtained the qualified developer certificate of the national consortium chain BSN blockchain service network.After becoming a qualified developer of BSN, Aiou Technology will participate in the development and testing of the BSN service network. The BSN released a complete set of blockchain solutions based on anti-counterfeiting traceability, supply chain finance, data asset sharing, and certification records to provide accurate and effective docking for upstream and downstream suppliers and demand in the corresponding industry.It is an honor for IOST to be recognized by the official BSN. IOST and its enterprise edition Aiou Technology will continue to make due contributions to the development of BSN applications. Together with well-known enterprises such as China Mobile and Weizhong Bank, IOST aims to create customized industrial blockchain solutions and contribute to the development of the new infrastructure, new smart cities, and the digital economy, which are of increasing importance nowadays.In the future, IOST Enterprise Edition will continue to dedicate to blockchain technology, relying on its 6 core technical advantages — Multi-cloud support, Multi-chain support, Permission management, Smart contracts, Privacy protection, and Consensus mechanism — to make due contributions to the BSN Development Alliance and promote the commercial implementation of blockchain technology.Join The IOST Community!With a mainnet that is one-year-old, IOST has swiftly risen to become a world-leading public chain renowned for its numerous government collaborations and enterprise partnerships around the world.In a bid to provide an open-source public platform to enterprises to leverage the benefits of DLT, the IOST blockchain project launched its Business-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform — Aircraft Carrier Plan.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: https://t.me/officialiosIOST Announcement Channel: https://t.me/iost_announcementsIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenIOST Co-founder Terry Wang Twitter: https://twitter.com/terrence_iostIOST Co-founder Jimmy Zhong Twitter: https://twitter.com/jimmyzhong_iostSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficialFacebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-GroupIOST Uptrennd Channel: https://www.uptrennd.com/iost…………………………………………………….IOST Joins BSN-China’s Nationwide Blockchain Network was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Mainnet Olympus v3.3.3...

Building a public chain ecosystem can be seen as building an online city, in both of them, the infrastructure is a basic requirement.As the most important underlying infrastructure of the ecosystem, the mainnet’s performance determines the development of the public chain ecosystem. In the more than a year since the mainnet launch, the IOST development team has maintained a technically innovative attitude and has carried out multiple and frequent version updates and optimizations. Today, the Olympus v3.3.3 IOST mainnet is officially launched!The key improvement of the newly released version is the developer experience. By improving the RPC interface and improving the command line tools and other three major improvements, developers’ working experience and efficiency of developing DApps on the IOST mainnet have been greatly improved.The following is a detailed introduction to the main optimizations of v3.3.3:A. RPC improvements1. Fixed the issue of transaction sending failure caused by inaccurate end-user system timeFixed an issue where some users’ inaccurate system time was causing transactions to be rejected and displaying “TimeError”.2. Added RPC showing all RAM used by the contractAdded ListContractStorage API to get the key-value pairs of all RAM consumed by the specified contract. It is convenient for contract developers to analyze their RAM usage and for developers to debug contracts.B. iWallet command line improvements1. When using the -s option to specify the RPC address, it is possible to omit the default port number 30002E.g: iwallet -s 18.209.137.246:30002 stateCan be written as: iwallet -s 18.209.137.246 state2. If the contract call parameters are of a single string type, simplification is allowed.E.g: iwallet -s 18.209.137.246 -a lispcc call vote_producer.iost getVoterBonus ‘[“obvote”]’Can be written as: iwallet -s 18.209.137.246 -a lispcc call vote_producer.iost getVoterBonus obvote3. If the RPC node allows the transaction to not be executed on the chain (because of the large resource consumption, this feature is not enabled by default. You can modify trytx: true in the configuration.) When the iwallet call command invokes a contract, you can add the — try_tx option to make the contract execute but not go to the chain.C.

The article highlights IOST’s mainnet launch, staking mechanism, and partnerships. BTCManager describes IOST as a project that successfully “addressed the fundamental scalability challenges faced by blockchain technology”, and strives to “empower people, services and machines to scale robust. services on a blockchain network.”In conclusion, BTCManager puts, “IOST is considered highly entrepreneurial. It offers solutions to the problems that large companies with an equally large customer base face daily. It appears to target primarily service-oriented businesses and in its White Paper indicates that: “IOST is a new generation blockchain technology that provides the network infrastructure to support a service-oriented ecosystem.”“Its token, IOST, has a still fairly low market capitalization of around $34 million. Considering the high visibility it is gaining together with the performance that the network can offer, it is a very underestimated value that could present large margins for growth. The token is available on various platforms including Huobi, Binance, MXCe OKEx with volumes on average above $30 million over 24 hours. IOST has achieved multiple significant milestones. For 2020, IOST priority continues to be growing the ecosystem & community exponentially.

IOST Unveils Official IRC-7...

IOST officially releases its NFT Standard IRC-721. What are NFT? What does IRC-721 entail? What significance does it bring to the IOST ecosystem?What are NFT?With the launch of the Crypto kitties game in 2017, a new form of blockchain digital asset- Fungible Tokens NFT emerged.If you’ve ever owned a cat, you’ll know that they are unique and not easy to replace. CryptoKitties replicated this concept in the crypto world — with each cat’s digital genetic material being stored on the blockchainThe common tokens that we see, such as IOST, are all fungible. There is no difference between each IOST (just like two 100 USD notes), which can be interchanged and divided. NFT are the opposite. Its important features are as follows:each NFT has a unique token IDNFT are not mutually interchangeablethe minimum unit is 1 and is indivisible (0.5 IOST exists, but in NFT, there only can be 1 NFT, for example, 0.5 crypto kitty does not exist)NFT assets are the value medium used to characterize non-monetary assets. Thanks to the decentralization, immutability, and cryptographic confirmation of the blockchain, NFT solves a series of real problems of the real-world assets with the following characteristics:Better liquidity → can be traded efficiently and atomically;Cryptography confirmation → prevention of forging assets.In addition, NFT has also achieved features that cryptocurrencies lack, such as characterizing negative assets (liabilities), identity, proof of equity, and virtual prop items. NFT fills the gap in crypto assets, allowing us to include assets with independent value into the scope of the crypto economy and obtain the protection of the blockchain.IOST has begun to fully lay out the NFT market & now unveil the official IOST IRC-721 NFT standard to you.IOST Official NFT StandardThe official IOST NFT standard protocol:can be directly used by developers (for the basis for issuance), which lower the threshold & difficulty for developers to issue NFT assetsmakes the NFT standard based on the IOST public chain unified, hence providing convenience for the NFT assets circulation (uniform issuance and circulation standards)makes the reuse of NFT assets on different platforms or games on the IOST chain possible.For users, the use of IOST NFT assets can promote the “NFTlization” of digital assets such as game assets, realize the confirmation of digital assets, solve the security problems of digital assets, and greatly improve the circulation of digital assets in the IOST ecosystem.IRC-721 defines the NFT standard in the IOST ecosystem with the following technical features:The main feature of IRC-721 is “Non-Fungible Token” (NFT). Each IRC-721 token has a unique token ID, and there will be only one owner;A standardized process for seamless cross-chain transfer of assets will be appliedAccording to IRC721 specs, NFT can store token ID as well as metadata in its contract. When the metadata size is too big which is not cost-effective, developers can store the external URL of metadata and links to the metadata in the contract.A locked transfer mechanism for digital assets/collections has been formulated to provide the flexibility in NFT assets issuanceA blacklist management function is available to meet the management needs for games and entertainment applications;With IRC-721 standard, IOST envisions it to be the leader in the new generation of NFT asset standards.NFT- IOST Tapping On New Blockchain ApplicationsTwo major currency-free application areas of blockchain technology are consortium chains and NFT.With consortium chains, IOST builds a one-stop BaaS platform to help developers or enterprises build chains quickly and provide enterprises with professional and targeted blockchain solutions.The official IOST NFT standard is another strategic layout for IOST to implement blockchain technology.Taking the field of online games where NFT is the most widely used as an example. Game props contain all relevant assets owned by players in the game. These assets have a common feature: players must acquire them either through playing the game and earn it or purchase with money.Game props are a data form that is very suitable for characterization using NFT:game props are produced and used on-chain, value support is provided by the gamemost of the game equipment and characters are unique and can circulate freely, which matches the characteristics of NFTNFT’s game props can also be used for cross-scenario, cross-server, and even cross-game property and reuse, making game assets no longer limited to an isolated scenario, but may become a truly universal currency within the ecosystem.The official IOST NFT standard will be the basis for the IOST blockchain game field to attain the game assets rights and the free & efficient circulation among players. IOST aims to link the blockchain games and game assets in the IOST ecosystem through the NFT standard, open up the data isolation between blockchain games, and realize the mapping and reuse of NFT assets among multiple independent games.In addition to games, the development of NFT will pave the way for IOST in new directions & opportunities: Collectibles, notes, registered securities, identity information, visas, property rights certificates, business agreements, membership cards, etc. are all potential application scenarios for NFT. NFT can be used where specific information needs to be recorded or personalized, to ensure that personal information cannot be tampered with or stolen so that the ownership of digital assets is clear.In the future, IOST will fully deploy the NFT ecosystem and encourage the “NFTization” of digital assets such as game assets within the IOST ecosystem, which will bring new and fresh ideas for the implementation of IOST blockchain technology. At the same time, we also hope that more blockchain games can access the IOST official NFT standard, create a high-circulation and high-value IOST blockchain gaming ecosystem, and realize the cross-game reuse of game assets.If you are interested in the IOST official NFT standard, you can consult the IRC-721 documents in:Create IRC721 Token · IOST DocsIOST’s official wallet- Jetstream Chrome Extension currently supports IRC-721 tokens.Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to XPET, a partner node of IOST, for this contribution to the development process of the IRC721 protocol & Jetstream developer for your help in this article.Join The IOST Community!With a mainnet that is one-year-old, IOST has swiftly risen to become a world-leading public chain renowned for its numerous government collaborations and enterprise partnerships around the world.IOST’s Node Program is widely praised as one of the best staking programs globally by blockchain research institutions for its attractive returns, low risk and ease of use.

IOST 2020 Q1 Node Conferenc...

At 20:00 on March 27, 2020, GMT+8, IOST held the 2020 Q1 Global Partner Nodes Conference. More than 50 representatives from around the world gathered together to share their contributions in the first quarter of 2020 and their development plans for the next quarter.IOST’s Progress in Q1 2020At the beginning of the conference, Blake, head of IOST’s Korean market and the IOST Foundation representative delivered a speech introducing the milestones achieved since IOST’s mainnet launch to the first quarter of 2020.IOST is an international team with more than 400 partner nodes from about 20 countries around the world in its ecosystem, including many media companies, exchanges, mining pools, and top tier dev teams and, of course, the community.After the launch of the mainnet, IOST has been interviewed by CCTV and delivered a speech in the Great Hall of the People. In addition, IOST has successfully launched a power trading project in Fujimi City and cooperation with AWS China. In the next stage, we will keep working hard and implementing IOST in all fields.Recently, IOST released three important announcements. First, IOST launched the aircraft carrier program that will expand its business based on IOST Enterprise Edition — AIOU Technology. IOST Enterprise Edition can be used in various fields, such as government affairs, supply chain, charity, Internet of Things, games, etc. The goal of IOST is to provide better services for each industry based on the experience and data obtained from previous cooperation with governments and enterprises, which will help traditional enterprises to more easily adopt the IOST blockchain.In addition, based on feedback from the community over the past year, the IOST Foundation updated the Node Program and decided to share more rewards with tier 1 to 3 partner nodes. Since a large number of nodes have to divide one’s share within each tier, this led tier 1–3 nodes to receive a relatively small amount of rewards compared to what IOST foundation and the nodes expected at the very beginning. Moreover, tier 4–5 nodes took a comparatively large amount of rewards with lesser efforts. The foundation believes that this situation is undesirable and unfair for the IOST ecosystem partners. Through this change, IOST will distribute rewards more fairly, providing more rewards for nodes who make more contributions to the ecosystem.Finally, IOST’s staking mechanism has also been updated. In a highly volatile crypto market, the one-week freeze period adds uncertainty, so the IOST Foundation shortened the 7-day freeze period to 3 days. While working on establishing a better ecosystem and realize the widespread implementation of blockchain technology, IOST also hopes to provide everyone with a better user experience through this upgrade.Partner Nodes’ Sharings: Q1 2020 Contributions & the Next Quarter PlansNext, 15 partner nodes shared their contributions and thoughts at the conference. The following is a summary of the shared content, we hope it inspires everyone to get higher contribution rewards in the next quarter.1. EverSystemIn Q1 2020, EverSystem mainly focused on building a p2p electricity trading platform on top of IOST and launched the system on 1st March. With the IOST team and partner companies’ support, EverSystem successfully finished the PoC.In the next quarter, EverSystem will be working on creating use cases in Japan using the IOST BaaS platform, which was launched recently by IOST Foundation, and hopefully partner with Japanese companies to deliver solutions to various real-world problems. EverSystem has also started building their own product using blockchain and look forward to introducing them to the market soon.2. Liebi PoolIn Q1 2020, Liebi mainly worked on two aspects: market operations and product development.For market operation,Mining pool stake increment: 89,714,604 IOST, 45% moreThe total stake of the mining pool reached 211 million IOSTMining users increment: 512Total mining transactions 890,000,Transaction amount: 2.41 Million VOST.For product development, the IOST cross-chain transfer bridge public component RUST-IOST development is now completed and Liebi is currently building the relay-service code.In Q2, Liebi will start the development of the light node for the IOST cross-chain transfer bridge. At the same time, the Liebi pool will also optimize the user experience and lower the threshold for Staking participation.3. Square OneSquare One is working in the business of making sports clothes and design, this is why they decided to spread IOST through something physical, an actual product that people can use. Square One set up IOST shop with IOST products and are spreading IOST Pay through all web pages and partners.4. XPETIn Q1, XPET has made three main contributions to the IOST ecosystem:1. The regular operation of the XPET Monster World gameThe update frequency → still once a weekPromotions and new activities → once a month.The daily activity and transactions are stable in the top 3 ranks according to IOST public chain DAPP rankings.2. Improved the IOST main network IRC721 protocol to achieve cross-chain reuse of NFT assetsWith the official assistance of IOST, XPET improved the IFT mainnet NFT protocol IRC721, and based on the pets of the monster world, they released IOST’s first NFT game asset. In addition, an interface to the cross-chain transfer bridge of the EOS mainnet NFT assets was added to the IRC721 protocol, enabling “asset reuse” of the same game asset in the same game on two public chains.3. The development of the NFT game asset trading platform “LOOT”LOOT is a comprehensive crypto asset trading platform. NFT assets connected to the IRC721 protocol can use transfer, cross-chain transfer (currently supports cross-chain between IOST and EOS) and trading functions on LOOT.In Q2, XPET will keep working on the development and improvement of new game features, using the game assets of the monster world as a model to provide developers of the IOST ecosystem with relevant NFT asset development, distribution, and trading services.5. BlockArcadeBlockArcade had a very successful and productive Q1 this year!

It is important to deploy on a compliant cloud platform, and AWS can meet the compliance requirements of blockchain companies in China and globally.” IOST co-founder / CTO Terry Wang said, “AWS has a higher number of available areas than other cloud service providers, which means that we can deploy IOST’s blockchain applications in a wider range of regions and effectively push the global compliance process of IOST. With the AWS China (Ningxia) region operated by Xiyun Data and the AWS China (Beijing) Region operated by Halo New Network, we can easily develop our business both in China and globally.”IOST’s Road to Promote Blockchain ApplicationsSince the beginning, IOST has been committed to promoting the blockchain technology applications in real life. We believe that blockchain in general, and IOST, in particular, have a great potential to transform multiple industries and fields in the near future.IOST’s global business has been advancing steadily and has now been applied in many fields. This is demonstrated by our partnerships with various industries leaders including, but not limited to:UAV flight data management system for civil aviation, to prevent tampering and effectiveness of UAV flight data;blockchain oracle in the financial industry to enable the blockchain to interact with real-world data;asset digitization and deposit certificate in artwork transactions, to help customers achieve traceability of artwork and deposit certificate of property rights on IOST blockchain;and the partnership with the Singapore Information and Communication Media Development Authority (IMDA) to gather third-party developers to build an IOST cross-chain technology framework to achieve consistency of cross-chain transaction data between different blockchains, and many moreThe in-depth collaboration with AWS- the global leader in providing cloud services will further accelerate IOST’s global deployment and global compliance progress.In the future, IOST will continue to work with AWS and APN Premier Consulting Partner, to introduce more concepts, architectures, and services to restructure the entire blockchain internal testing platform infrastructure and strive to bring advanced blockchain technology into more industries and empower enterprises to develop innovatively.Check Out One-Click Deployment Platform for EnterprisesLast year, IOST’s Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform has been live on AWS Marketplace.IOST’s high speed, secure BaaS platform allows developers to launch blockchain solutions in as quickly as 5 minutes.

FAQ — Most Frequently Asked...

FAQ — Most Frequently Asked Questions in IOST Official International Telegram GroupI am writing this FAQ article based on the guide that the former IOST telegram administrator Chris wrote in the past. As Chris says for him in his introduction: “I’ve been active in the Telegram group for some time now, daily answering questions. To make helping a little easier I’ve created this FAQ. It’s a bit filled with personal opinions but should help out a lot. In the future more tools, (hardware) wallets and blockchain explorers will be available, thus this post can become outdated.” I have also been active for a while in the Telegram group and now, I will continue his work and update the post he left for all of us. Here, I would like to express my gratitude to Chris for making our lives easier.Content:How can I create a mainnet account?What desktop / mobile wallets can I use?What about iGAS and iRAM?Can I stake IOST?How can I vote IOST?How do I research a node?When are the quarterly rewards expected?How can I run a node?Help! My wallet doesn’t work, nothing happens when I do a (trans)action.How can I swap my ERC-20 tokens to mainnet tokens?Why does IOST do the token swap only at exchanges? Can we do a manual swap?When will the mainnet token swap end?For support please visit the official Telegram groupIOST Official International Group1. How can I create a mainnet account?From time to time, you can find that there are platform which allows you to create a mainnet account for free, but although you get a free mainnet account, those are not actually free, there is always someone who pays for you, so please show your gratitude to the payer and please do appreciate the gift this person gave you today :).You can buy a mainnet account at https://iostaccount.io for 150 IOST. Alternatively, you can use TokenPocket to buy an activation code through PayPal, Alipay or WeChatpay for $1 or choose “create by a friend” and ask a friend who is already on IOST to pay it for you.Some IOST nodes might also be giving away free TokenPocket activations trough Telegram, please link with them on IOST official International community group.Create IOST AccountNotes:The name you choose when creating an account is also your wallet address.Make sure to backup your private key safely!! When lost you won’t be able to access your funds anymore and nobody can help you retrieve them!!If you don’t feel comfortable creating a mainnet account through a third party site/app, rest assure you can change the private key(s). You could use the Windows CLI wallet (linked at point 2) to generate a new private key offline, as advised in tutorial. Be careful when changing your private key(s), if anything goes wrong, nobody can help you access your funds.See tutorialhttps://medium.com/media/1f135485cb01b4bfed5d227dd14dda18/href2. What desktop/mobile wallets can I use?At the moment your best options to access your mainnet account (although others are available) are.iWallet (open source chrome extension)iWalletJetstream Chrome extensionJetstreamTokenPocket (IOST partner) for mobileTokenPocket - 你的通用数字钱包 | TP钱包 - EOS钱包 - ETH钱包 - BTC钱包 - TRX钱包 - IOST钱包 - BOS钱包 - COSMOS钱包 - Binance钱包 - 墨客钱包 - 井通钱包 - ENU钱包Just paste your private key(s) into them and you are ready to go.For more information please visit:wallet_en - IOSTFor crypto veterans there is also a Windows CLI wallet available.iWallet - The Native IOST Wallet for Windows Users by IOST WatchNotes:I hear a lot of people saying things like: “I’ve got my IOST in iWallet”. To avoid misconceptions, please understand that you don’t hold your tokens in any software wallet. iWallet, TokenPocket or other (future) wallets are just means to access your IOST account. You could even use iWallet to vote, delete iWallet, and use TokenPocket with the same private key to claim rewards or unvote. Again: You don’t store your tokens in a wallet but you access your IOST account with it. This way TokenPocket, iWallet, iostabc and (future) blockchain explorers / wallets are redundant and replaceable.There is a reason the dev team didn’t create an official IOST wallet. It disincentivizes any other wallet developers because they think the official wallet will get all the support, promotion etc so developers wouldn’t be interested in creating these tools for IOST. Also, 3rd party wallets is pretty essential from a decentralization perspective. If IOST core are controlling protocol and wallet, it’s not ideal.3. What about iGAS and iRAM?Read this article.Everything You Need to Know about iGAS and iRAM on IOST: From the Real DApp DataTLDR:iGAS is what you burn when doing (trans)actions. iGAS regenerates daily so (trans)actions are actually free. Although doing a lot of actions can burn up your iGAS. To get a bigger fuel tank you can pledge IOST for iGAS. When you run out of iGAS, maybe pledge 10 IOST to it and see how that goes, you can always pledge more if needed. When ‘done’ you can unpledge the IOST, after a lockdown of 3 days those IOST are returned to your balance and are yours to use again. You won’t make gains or get rewards for pledging IOST on iGAS.iRAM is memory to store information of your personal mainnet account. A mainnet account needs 1KB to be able to exist, this is the amount you start at. You’ll need to buy more iRAM when you need to store more information / smart contracts. For example when you want to vote for more than 3 nodes, you’ll need to buy 1kb extra. When you buy or sell iRAM 2% of the IOST you pay is burned (deflationary model) so you can sell iRAM back to yourself but you’ll get less IOST in return. You won’t make gains or get rewards for juggling iRAM. Just buy as little iRAM as needed.4. Can I “stake” IOST?Yes, read this article.How to vote for IOST nodes in a decentralized fashionTLDR:We call staking ‘voting’. You vote for a node you favor, and lock your IOST on them. By doing so you support that node / the IOST ecosystem and you’ll get rewarded some IOST.By voting from a personal mainnet account you won’t lose possession of your IOST tokens, they are still locked under your private key. You can even unvote when node goes offline.If you unvote, after a lockdown of 7 days those IOST are returned to your balance and yours to use again. Just make sure to keep this in mind when you want to sell at a certain price point.To estimate your ROI you can go toIOST Rewards Caculator | IOST Blockchain Explorer5. How can I vote IOST?Please refer to point 4.6. How do I research a node?I recommend doing research and vote for a node you can actually contact on Telegram or through social media. On https://iostabc.com/producers/ you’ll find a list of nodes and details such as their websites. As part as decentralization the node owner has to input a command https://medium.com/iost/node-partners-rewards-claim-guide-8abd70f0c6e4 (daily) to release your rewards. To see how often a node gives rewards, check nodes wallet address transactions see how often they execute candidateWithdraw command. This is also shown under the DIVIDEND RECORDS tab. Even when the node owner skips a day or two, your rewards will accumulate in the background.7. When are the quarterly rewards expected?Depending on the level of contributions from your chosen node, your quarterly bonus may be up to 300% of the daily rewards you have received for the same period! The expected 2020 quarterly contribution rewards distribution schedule is:8. How can I run a node?There is differentiation between Servi and Partner nodes, you can become for both. Read this articles about minimum specs and application here.Become Servi Node · IOST DocsTo streamline the on-boarding of Servi Nodes, enable the stability and progressive scaling of the IOST network as well as ensuring profitability of Servi Nodes from block production rewards, the required vote amount received from Voters and/or from self-staking has been increased to 10,000,000 Votes.Servi Node Guide: Requirements and On-boardingIf you wish to be rewarded for your contributions to the IOST ecosystem, you can check out these programs here:Featured DApps Support ProgramIOST x Bluehill | Featured DApps Support Program Now Launched!Bug Bounty ProgramIOST Bug Bounty Program: Building a Secure BlockchainDapp Referral ProgramDApp Referral Program: Become a Contributor to the IOST Ecosystem!9. Help! My wallet doesn’t work, nothing happens when I do a (trans)action.This happens when you don’t have enough iGAS or iRAM, check if you got enough (see point 3).If trying to stake/buy iRAM/iGAS with iWallet gives error undefined(status code: undefined}) then use https://www.iostabc.com/wallet/resources to succeed.If you get a -time out- error, make sure your time and region settings are right, maybe reboot or just press F5. When on mobile, set time to auto instead of manual.10. How can I swap my ERC-20 tokens to mainnet tokens?Currently, all swaps from ERC-20 IOST tokens to Mainnet Tokens are done through exchanges. You can deposit your ERC-20 IOST tokens to exchanges that support the IOST Mainnet Token Swap.To keep it short I’ll just talk about swapping trough Binance for now.Binance Will Support The IOST Mainnet Token SwapQuote: Please note that even after the IOST mainnet is online, if you choose to deposit ERC20 IOST tokens into your Binance account, we will continue to process the token swap for you.So just send the ERC-20 IOST to your main ETH account on Binance. Binance will swap them for you, in about 20 minutes they will appear as IOST mainnet tokens on your balance.11. Why does IOST do the token swap only at exchanges? Can we do a manual swap?Token Swap is still an abstract concept for many non-technical users. Manual swapping is not only complicated, but also risky. IOST has not yet officially launched a manual token swap scheme. Please avoid trying it, or any company claiming to provide such a service outside of the above-mentioned exchanges. IOST’s selected exchange partners are world-renowned, high-security global exchanges where users can use safely without any concerns.12. When will the mainnet token swap end?IOST has already started the Mainnet Token Swap, and it will be continued throughout 2020 for users to complete the swap from IOST ERC-20 Token to IOST Mainnet Token. IOST has set an adequate time frame for this token swap to ensure that every user can complete the token swap during this transition period. IOST Foundation will send advance notice to communities on various platforms before it ends the token swap.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: https://t.me/officialiosIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficial/Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-Group………………………………………………………FAQ — Most Frequently Asked Questions in IOST Official International Telegram Group was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST’s One-Stop Blockchain-...

While developing the public chain technology and its ecosystem, IOST had also been explored consortium chains and finally launched the IOST Enterprise Edition Aiou Technology in 2019. Leveraging on our previous rich experience in working with enterprises, IOST now officially opens our Blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) to the public & build:a one-stop BaaS platform for the consortium chainhelp developers or enterprises to quickly establish a blockchainand provide professional and targeted blockchain solutions for government and enterprises.IOST BaaS Platform, also known as the Aircraft Carrier Plan is now open its blockchain solutions to the following sectors:Government AffairsJudicial FieldSupply Chain SectorCharityInternet of ThingsArt Trading FieldGaming FieldEducationE-CommerceAdvertising & EntertainmentMedical/ BeautyThis document consists of the following sections:Why IOST Enterprise Services?Targeted Customers & What We Can Do For YouTop Business CasesHow to Get StartedWhy IOST Enterprise Edition?IOST is dedicated to the research and development of blockchain technology and to the continuous introduction of trusted blockchain platforms and products to the market.IOST BaaS is based on six underlying core technologies of blockchains: Multi-cloud support, multi-chain support, permission management, smart contracts, privacy protection, consensus mechanism. — and customized by Hyperledger Fabric, the most widely used consortium chain system in the world.At present, the measured data of IOST BaaS TPS has reached tens of thousands, it can simultaneously update millions of data and support the upload of hundreds of millions of data. In the areas of technical maturity and stability or non-technical tools, tutorials, communities, ecosystems, etc., IOST is far ahead of other platforms and accessible for enterprises to integrate and develop.Based on the rich experience gained after cooperating with governments and enterprises and in order to promote the implementation of blockchain applications, IOST decided to launch its IOST BaaS platform, also known as the “Aircraft Carrier Plan”. We will officially open commercial services to help more traditional enterprises in their transition to or adoption of the blockchain technology.A. Who Is This Service For?With the launch of the “Aircraft Carrier Plan”, IOST will open cooperations to the following types of enterprises, developers, local government departments, and other organizations in need, providing direct technical services, consultants, blockchain training, and promotion services to create an open and win-win blockchain business ecosystem.1. Government AffairsChallenges faced:The current e-government system implemented in some countries face problems such as data isolation, poor security, and lack of supervision. Databases of different government departments are independent of each other, and information integration is difficult. Sharing data also impose security risks. E-government related information involves national security and citizen privacy, if things go wrong or some data is leaked, the consequences can be serious.How IOST helps:IOST enables cross-agency interaction, privacy protection, and efficiency improvement among government departments through encryption, public ledger, and smart contracts. In comparison with traditional platforms, the e-government platform based on IOST BaaS will adopt point-to-point encrypted transmission and rapid approval of “smart contracts”, thereby achieving cost reduction, efficiency, transparency & traceability, and information security encryption, breaking data isolation issue.2. Judicial FieldChallenges faced:With the development of digital technology, electronic evidence (in the form of sound files, pictures, videos, etc.) are more frequently used in lawsuits. According to the 2018 White Paper on the Application of Electronic Evidence in China, over 73% of civil cases across the country involved electronic evidence. However, there are many difficulties in the process of it.Because they are easy to tamper, how to determine its authenticity is the main issue when accepting electronic evidence. Electronic evidence is also easy to lose. They usually require multiple backups, and also to save the original file. Furthermore, the traditional method of depositing evidence is time-consuming, inefficient and involves a high cost, while also not suitable for the preservation.How IOST helps:The unique characteristics of blockchain technology, such as immutability and decentralized storage can fix the pain points of electronic evidence storage. The judicial consortium chain based on IOST BaaS reduces the cost of electronic evidence storage and enhances the authenticity of electronic evidence, thereby improving the efficiency of litigation.3. Supply Chain SectorChallenges faced:The supply chain can be viewed as a network of suppliers, manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers, and vendors. In the supply chain, capital flows, information flows, and real logistics operate interactively, so coordination is extremely difficult. Traditionally, relying on a single chain owner, the coordination model of core enterprises has been unable to meet the needs of a diversified and rapidly developing market.How IOST helps:Because of its immutable, decentralized, and asymmetric encryption characteristics, the blockchain is suitable for multi-party participation and information exchange scenarios, which helps to realize the democratization of data and the connection of decentralized databases. With IOST BaaS, companies on the chain can achieve peer-to-peer communication and transactions without the need for intermediaries, which can reduce trust costs. The information contained by on-chain nodes is identical and automatically updated, so the information seen by suppliers and customers is the same. Real-time visualization tools can identify unnecessary waste in the supply chain, optimize production links, accelerate logistics and information flow, power lean production, and make accurate forecasts. The condition is to automatically execute actions and update data according to smart contracts, eliminating manual operations and paperwork, reducing costs.In addition, to break data isolation in the supply chain will also be of great significance. IOST BaaS will provide more resources for big data analysis based on the supply chain, improve data quality, reduce the risk of data leaks, and make Big Data become possible. At the same time, by achieving data ownership in the supply chain, it can also help establish a data trading market.4. CharityChallenges faced:Traditional charity organizations are run by centralized institutions, thus the records of all donations are held by those institutions, which has led to a general lack of transparency. Traditional charity organizations have always been operating inefficiently, not open, not transparently, and distributed resources unreasonably and irrationally.How IOST helps:Blockchain is essentially a distributed database with the advantages of being open, transparent, traceable, and difficult to tamper. With immutability and traceability at the heart of charity information disclosure, blockchain technology is the perfect candidate to improve the credibility of public welfare organizations. By recording all donations on this ledger, donors and recipients can be effectively connected and everyone can check the flow of donated materials.In addition, the use of blockchain smart contracts can also solve problems such as complex processes and black box operations in traditional charity projects.5. Internet of ThingsChallenges faced:With the development and evolution of the Internet of Things, the problems related to it are gradually accentuated. In terms of personal privacy, a centralized management structure cannot be fully trusted, and personal privacy data is often leaked.Currently, the IoT data flow is aggregated into a single central control system. With the continuous evolution of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology that enables long-range wireless connectivity for low power consumption, IoT equipment will grow exponentially, and the cost of centralized services will become increasingly difficult to bear. According to IBM’s forecast, there will be more than 25 billion connected devices in 2020. The global IoT platform lacks a unified language, which can easily cause communication between multiple IoT devices to be blocked.How IOST helps:IOST BaaS IoT chain will directly overturn the centralized architecture of the IoT, which will not only greatly reduce the pressure on the computing side, but also unleashes more possibilities for new organizational structures of the IoT, providing more room for innovation. Secondly, the accuracy and immutability of the consortium chain records also make the privacy and security evidence-based, and it is easier to defend and deal with in terms of security. In some architectures, distributed blockchain IoT nodes will also not be affected by traditional DDOS.From the perspective of integrity, blockchain and the Internet of Things are also mutually reinforcing relationships. Blockchain + IoT can effectively expand the source of access to data, reflect credit information in the field of circulation in a more credible way, and further provide valuable services.6. Energy FieldChallenges faced:The current power transmission loss rate in the energy field is high, and corporate financing is also difficult. The industry has a large scale and a large number of funds, and the transactions are very complicated, resulting in high transaction costs and settlement costs between various links. And the lack of an effective credit mechanism has led to a low data-sharing rate in the energy industry.How IOST helps:Blockchain technology will change the production and trading model of the energy system. Energy trading entities can implement energy production, trading, infrastructure sharing, and digital and precise management of energy, which in the future will be able to extend to energy interconnection scenarios such as distributed trading microgrids, energy finance, carbon certificate trading, green certificate issuance, and electric vehicles.In P2P power transactions, especially for distributed energy, transactions between users and generators can be achieved through an energy consortium chain developed on IOST BaaS. For the determination of loss, the conversion loss between different energy sources, the long-distance transmission of energy, and other losses caused by other operations can be notarized more transparently through the blockchain. In the cross-energy market, transactions between multiple energy systems and their price information can be recorded, and the marginal prices of different types of energy in each region can be generated in real-time based on this.7. Art Trading FieldChallenges faced:At present, basic art transactions are characterized by privatization, fragmentation, speculation, and poor resource circulation. Among the art trading methods, traditional trading methods, including galleries, expositions, and other places often experience private transactions, which brings potential risks and high transaction costs to art transactions.The art market is flooded with counterfeits, which also seriously undermines the integrity of transactions. And this phenomenon is mainly due to the existence of many opaque phenomena in the authorization mechanism, which makes the authenticity of the artwork and the source difficult to distinguish.How IOST helps:IOST BaaS Consortium Chain can build a highly trusted decentralized artwork data database, including photos, collectors, affiliated artists, transaction information, and review information of artworks, etc. can be uploaded to the blockchain network. During the transaction process, art enthusiasts can extract artwork data from a decentralized network, view the artwork information, and make a reasonable valuation of the artwork.Any relevant information on the artwork circulates transparently on the chain, and its source can be easily traced back, which will greatly reduce counterfeits in the industry. Through the blockchain technology, a decentralized art trading platform has been created, real-time transaction settlement and tamper-proof and verifiable sources have been created. This has improved the transparency of art transactions and has also simplified and automated the financial service process.8. Gaming FieldChallenges faced:In the traditional & centralized games, the game producers have the authority to control the game rules & sometimes, at the expense of players’ interests. If the game’s numerical system is out of balance, the game producers may start to adjust the values, but any adjustment will damage the interests of some players.In addition, game assets cannot be exchanged in traditional games, and players only have the right to use the game, without ownership.How IOST helps:The core technologies of blockchain such as distributed ledgers, smart contracts, and consensus mechanisms have strong application prospects in games. For example, when rules of the game are written into a smart contract, it prevents developers from making random changes to the game and enables the rights and free circulation of game assets.Earlier, IOST has officially signed a contract with King Kong Games, the first game listing company on the NEEQ. The IOST BaaS chain has changed the existing game development, distribution, communication and profit model for games, breaking the barriers of trust between players and game developers, putting the core assets on the chain, and realize digital asset rights and digital asset circulation in games.In the future, players and game manufacturers will jointly build a harmonious game ecosystem. Assets in different games can be easily transferred to other games. Players can realize the free trading of virtual digital assets. Real data and trust costs will be greatly reduced. Players can directly benefit by making contributions to the game ecosystem. The breaking of the multi-game economy dimension wall will allow the game economy ecology to gain new possibilities.9. Educational FieldChallenges faced:Some main problems faced by the traditional education organizations include the widespread falsification of academic qualifications, the difficulty in assessing the teaching quality of institutions, and the lack of interaction among participants.How IOST helps:Academic data, student evolution files, and other data related to academic history can be stored and recorded on the blockchain. Blockchain + education can make use of the anonymity and privacy of the blockchain to open up the current data isolation and allow students, schools, training institutions, etc. to share learning data, thereby optimizing the data supply end and achieving personalized teaching according to the student’s aptitudes. Earlier, IOST reached cooperation with BlockDevs Asia to store the learning certificate in the IOST consortium chain, which has ensured the authenticity of the user’s learning process, making the verification of learning credentials more effective, safe and simple.10. E-commerce FieldChallenges faced:In the traditional e-commerce field, in the past 10 years, the e-commerce industry has continuously optimized and upgraded sales links, channels, and suppliers, which has brought great convenience to people’s lives. On the other hand, the increasing centralization is unavoidable, the benefits are captured by the giants, and the value generated by the platform is sometimes difficult to return to merchants and consumers. At this time, new technology or model is needed to break the ceiling of the industry and empower the e-commerce industry.How IOST helps:With IOST’s consortium chain, any seller can publish goods through a standard smart contract template, and buyers can search for the corresponding goods through the blockchain network, or even directly pay the seller in tokens, achieving decentralized transactions.In the future, products will be more open and transparent, so anyone will be able to search through the blockchain network. Once consumers feel that a product is not suitable for sale, such as some contraband, they can report it directly. Then, a third party composed of merchants and users can be randomly generated on-chain to judge the product. If the product is considered unsuitable for trading, it will be taken off the shelf.In addition, the e-commerce chain based on IOST BaaS can also decentralize the platform’s interests and return the value generated by users to users.11. Advertising and Entertainment FieldChallenges faced:At present, traditional advertising models are losing popularity rapidly among users, and publishers of advertisements do not get their due income. Users may receive a poor experience, and the advertising platforms also face the risk of losing users.In addition, the appearance of advertising bots that imitate human patterns and produce fake clicks in ads cause publishers to suffer a lot of losses, at this point, existing anti-fraud techniques hardly prevent this from happening. Many advertising publishing platforms earn revenue and shares based on the number of clicks on advertisements. Therefore, there lacks a strong subjective willingness to monitor the actual clicks, which has led some advertisers to deceive content publishers with bots.How IOST helps:With IOST’s Consortium Chain, all parties of the advertising supply chain, including consumers, will co-exist in a decentralized platform ecosystem. Consumers will participate in designing, producing, creating and innovating with businesses. Since consumers can observe the information and data of each node on the blockchain, the trust relationship between advertisements and consumers may be transformed into machine trust and data trust.In the future, each advertisement can accurately locate each consumer according to the information flow and database on the blockchain node, avoiding ineffective placement and excessive disturbing to consumers, while maximizing benefits. The severe reduction in advertising costs may reduce consumer costs too and achieve a win-win situation. The biggest role of blockchain technology in the field of advertising is to integrate all the intermediate parties in the industrial chain, break the data isolation of each node, and use blockchain technology to reach a broad consensus among advertisers, traffic owners, and users, achieving mutual trust at the lowest cost and improve the efficiency of the entire industry chain.12. Medical/Beauty FieldChallenges faced:After entering the 21st century, the medical beauty industry has become the third-largest industry after the automotive industry and the aviation industry, with a total annual market of around 150 billion US dollars. However, some outstanding challenges in this industry include: unlicensed and/or false licenses, unsafe medical beauty drugs, frequently leaked medical data, and some institutions are even constantly wandering on the edge of the law, which has seriously hindered the development of the medical beauty industry.How IOST helps:Through the IOST BaaS consortium chain, it is possible to achieve decentralized management, immutable tracking, and auditing, data traceability, reliability and easy to use, privacy and security. Applying it to the medical beauty industry will help in providing safety services for the global medical beauty ecosystem. At the level of medical institutions, blockchain technology can achieve unified management of distribution, inventory management, and medical staff, and realize a decentralized collaborative office system. At the consumer level, it can provide predictable effects to consumers, help consumers choose the most appropriate medical solution, and record unchangeable medical data on consumer information to protect personal privacy rights.B. Top Business CasesAt present, IOST has developed a high-performance blockchain system, the IOST BaaS platform, based on the underlying core technologies of blockchain. IOST targets four major areas: anti-counterfeit & traceability, supply chain finance, data asset sharing, and evidence record. It provides accurate and effective docking for supply and demand in the industry and has achieved considerable social and economic benefits. Empower the physical industry with innovative blockchain technology in multiple areas.1. Aerospace Data PlatformStrategic cooperation with the global leading drone company EHang, using IOST Pass to provide a safe and reliable data management system for drone companies to ensure that the operating system data is encrypted, verified and tamperproof against third parties, this also guarantees the validity of the drone flight data for the Civil Aviation Administration.2. Artwork Traceability SystemStrategic cooperation with the gallery of the European Art Association, the top antique dealer in China. IOST Source was used to record the partial property rights certificate on the chain. Information cannot be tampered after being recorded and has a unique ID on the chain; each exhibit will be strictly screened before being recorded to ensure that the collector holds the genuine product, which will provide a strong guarantee for the healthy and orderly development of the art market.3. Traditional Games “chainify” Transition SystemFormally signed a contract with King Kong Games, the first game listing company on the NEEQ, the existing game development, distribution, communication and profit model for games through the IOST blockchain, breaking the barriers of trust between players and game developers, putting the core assets on the chain, and realize digital asset rights and digital asset circulation in games.4. P2P Power Trading SystemPartnership with Fujimi City Power Plant, the third-largest power plant in Japan, to develop the IOST-based consortium chain suitable for its business. All power information can be jointly managed by the participants, and users can more smoothly and efficiently settle power transactions. The mayor of Fujimi, Japan said that the project has profound significance for residents and power companies throughout the city.5. Shanyiou Information Disclosure PlatformTraditional charities are usually inefficient, insufficiently open & transparent and slow & questionable in the matter of distribution. IOST Enterprise- Aiou Technology launched a charity information disclosure platform based on blockchain technology, in conjunction with Ningbo and Changsha local governments, the China Enterprise Federation and China Software Association, to promote the transparency of charity organizations and contribute to the prevention and control of the epidemic.After the platform was launched, it attracted the attention of major mainstream media. People’s Daily, Xinhuanet, and Tencent all expressed their recognition of the blockchain model of charity platform + charity innovation. At present, the charity assets publicized by the Shanyiou platform are nearly one billion yuan, and thousands of items have been donated, providing donations for about 20 provinces and cities nationwide. With the development of the cooperation, it is expected that in the future, only one hundred members of the China Enterprise Federation and China Soft Association will join the Shanyiou Charity Information Publicity Platform.6. Blockchain Education PlatformJointly launched an online education tool with BlockDevs Asia, using the decentralized, verifiable, and tamper-resistant storage system of the IOST technology to store the learning certificate in the blockchain database, which can ensure the authenticity of the user’s learning process, making learning credential verification more effective, secure and simple.7. Public Welfare Traceability PlatformCooperation with Mantra and Apopo Foundation, based on the IOST blockchain, every donation will be recorded, and the donor can clearly check the whereabouts of the donation and related information. The immutable nature of the blockchain can also ensure that information is permanently stored and cannot be tampered. This will greatly increase the authority, transparency and public trust of the service.C. Contact UsWant to improve your business with blockchain technology?

Initial Results for IOST 20...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q1 2020 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.16 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1.24M IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeThe contribution rewards for IOST partner nodes are provided by the IOST Foundation. From March 10, 2019, to March 9, 2020, a total of 2% of the total circulation was issued, which is 420 million IOST. As described, 50% of the contribution reward is allocated based on the number of votes and the remaining 50% according to the contribution reward mechanism.Note: Beginning March 10, 2020, IOST will conduct ranking and reward distribution according to the Node Program v2.0.Assessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from Jan 3rd to Jan 10th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers have been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that were similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where an assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q4 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each node's account. For disputes please contact your regional contact (China, Japan, Korea or International) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 23:59 Jan 16th (GMT+8).The final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Friday, Jan 17.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by the end of February, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith excellent rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to better incentivize nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative. Also, keep an eye on your Node discussion groups for requests for support in several upcoming initiatives run by the core team, these count to your contributions too!To become a node, join the IOST ecosystem and start earning rewards please check out the Servi & Partner Node Registration Guide.If you would like to hang out with the IOST community on chat, social media or to discuss product development, we have something for everyone:International English Telegram Group: https://t.me/officialiosOfficial Announcement Channel: https://t.me/iost_announcementsIOST Official Twitter: https://twitter.com/IOStokenTerry Wang Twitter: https://twitter.com/terrence_iostJimmy Zhong Twitter: https://twitter.com/jimmyzhong_iostSlack Developer Community: https://invite.iost.ioReddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/IOStokenFacebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/IOSTofficial/Facebook Group: http://bit.ly/IOST-FB-Group……………………………………………………………………………………….Initial Results for IOST 2020 Q1 Contribution Rankings and Rewards was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Node Program v2.0 Is O...

IOST Node Program v2.0Since 2019, more than 400 partner nodes from about 20 countries around the world have joined the IOST ecosystem, including numerous media enterprises, exchanges, top tech teams, enthusiastic communities, etc. With the joint efforts of everyone, IOST has achieved a total staking volume of more than 4 billion IOST and also recorded great achievements in multiple fields such as payments, public welfare, education, traceability, mass adoption and compliance progress.To attract more partners to the IOST node ecosystem while ensuring the interests of the main contributors, IOST now presents the Node Program v2.0, which has been be in effect from March 10, 2020.A. Introduction to the Contribution Reward SystemThe objective of the Contribution Reward System is to incentivize all Nodes to contribute towards building and developing the ecosystem, as well as allowing Nodes that do not receive a large share of votes to still earn a good amount of rewards for their significant contributions to the IOST ecosystem.The following document lays out the new contribution reward system. Your feedback and suggestion are welcome.B. Overview of Contribution Reward PoolAnnual contribution rewards account for 2% of the total supply of IOST, 1% coming from inflation and 1% provided by the IOS Foundation.50% of the contribution reward is allocated based on the number of votes, so the more votes, the more rewards. The remaining 50% will be allocated according to the contribution reward mechanism, which will be explained in detail in this article.C. Reward Distribution and Timeline1. Election rewards are issued daily and contribution rewards are issued quarterly (every 3 months).2. Quarterly contribution reports should be submitted at the end of each quarter. Rewards will be issued after the final rating results are announced.3. The system calculates the number of votes obtained by the node on a daily basis and the rewards for the share of votes are distributed based on the average voting share received during the quarter.D. Contribution Evaluation Method1. Partner nodes submit their contribution reports on a quarterly basis, describing in detail each quarter’s contribution to the IOST ecosystem. (Check this template for more info: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPM)2. The IOST Foundation evaluates the contribution reports of each partner node.3. According to the contribution ranking, every partner node will get the tier level matching their contribution value and get the corresponding rewards to its tier.4. Partner nodes can choose one of the following contribution categories to submit a contribution report. The selected contribution category must be the most relevant to the nature of its contribution content. If the node operator also makes some contributions that belong to another category(s), these contributions need to be described in the contribution report and will be counted together in the final ranking. For example, multiple DApp developers have launched DApps of equal value, but one of the DApp developers has promoted his DApp, which will give the partner node extra points and improve its ranking.Specific contribution categories include:Content creation and promotionDAppsIntegrations (wallet, exchange, browser, etc.)Events / Meetups / HackathonsCommunity BuildingOthers (On-boarding & Referral)E. Evaluation criteria for each contribution categoryEach contribution report is evaluated by the following criteria:1. Content creation and promotionSpread the awareness on IOST to crypto fans and mainstream users to attract more users and developers to join the IOST network. First, the content production of the partner nodes must be of high quality, but more importantly, the number of views or reads for these content. It should be placed on a platform that can get a lot of exposure outside the IOST community and shared through social platforms, news portals, and crypto communities.Content quality (accuracy, production quality)Views / clicks / forwardsReadability of the contentMedia or personal brandingSocial media campaigns or activities2. DAppsValue-added to the ecosystem (for example: whether you DApp is an interesting and useful new DApp or just a plain copy of a DApp that already exists on IOST)Daily active usersDaily trading volume3. Integrations (wallet, exchange, browser, etc.)Value-added to the ecosystem (whether it is an interesting and useful new integration or a copy of an existing one)Downloads / viewsDaily active usersToken transaction volume4. Events / Meetups / HackathonsEvent quality (content, theme, speakers, etc.)The number of participantsMedia reports and distribution5. CommunityCommunity activities or campaignsCommunity user base and growthSocial media activities or campaignsIOST community support and interaction6. Compulsory dutiesJoin at least two IOST node conferences every quarterRetweeting or distributing at least 6 IOST articles in your community.If a node fails to fulfill the above duties, its contribution tier will be downgraded by one.F. How to Submit a Contribution ReportContribution reports should be submitted via: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPMEach contribution must be tagged in a numbered list with a clear description. Each contribution should contain as much verifiable documentation as possible. Any unverifiable contribution will not be included in the contribution evaluation ranking.Each contribution report will only include the contributions made within the past three months. For example, the DAU of a DApp should only describe the growth during the last 3 months.G. Contribution Evaluation & RankingThe IOS Foundation will evaluate the contribution reports based on the criteria mentioned above. There are 5 tiers in total, the spots in the 1st to 4th tier will be limited whereas tier 5 has unlimited spots.H. Contribution rewards by tiersRegardless of the category, node partners of the same tier will receive the same amount of rewards. The annual contribution rewards pool of 210 million IOST will be divided into tiers and their corresponding rewards as follows:Partner nodes in the same tier will get the same amount of rewards;*Rewards for one node= total tier reward/number of partner nodes in the tier.Taking a 91-day quarter as an example, say all spots in tier 1 to 4 are filled, with 20 nodes in tier 5, totaling 102 nodes. The results will be: (Keep in mind that in tier 1 to 4, as every spot is taken in the example below, the rewards shown is the minimum you can get.)I. Fairness and impartiality of the evaluationThe contribution evaluation and ranking of partner nodes will be jointly carried out by 10 members in different sectors from the IOS Foundation. Initial ranking will be made first and any partner node can then open a dispute.Join The IOST Community!IOST’s Partner Program is widely praised as the globally leading staking program by numerous blockchain research institutions with attractive returns, low risk and ease of use are some of the key program highlights.

IOST X University of Zurich...

In late January 2020, IOST Co-founder Terry and IOST Japan Growth Lead Makoto visited Switzerland after receiving an invitation from the Swiss Ambassador to Japan. While in Switzerland they attended multiple business conferences with influential European organizations. The University of Zurich (UZH) was one of the business partners met during this European trip, and now the IOST Foundation is pleased to announce the first of many events organized by the UZH Blockchain Center which IOST will be part of.IOST X UZH | First Steps TogetherHaving been involved in the blockchain sector since 2014, in March 2019 the UZH established a Competence Center on Blockchain. The UZH Blockchain Center’s activities revolve around three basic pillars: research, education, and collaboration.

IOST Updated Mainnet v3.3.2...

IOST Updated Mainnet Olympus v3.3.2 Official LaunchOn February 25, 2019, the IOST mainnet Olympus v1.0 was officially live. IOST is now the most scalable and decentralized public blockchain available for users and developers and is able to support millions of users and thousands of nodes on the network. IOST creates a scalable network with high throughput through the original Proof of Believability (PoB) consensus mechanism.Since the first mainnet release, IOST has attracted more than 400 partner nodes from more than 20 countries around the world. Over a span of a year, IOST has never stopped working on continuous improvement frequently and multi-directionally. Today, we introduce to you the latest update: Mainnet Version 3.3.2 Is Now Officially Launched!The IOST mainnet Olympus v3.3.2 further completes the cryptographic library, laying a good development base for cross-chain technology and atomic swap; we have added new tools for cropping block data to reduce disk usage while ensuring the stable operation of nodes, which greatly reduces the threshold for nodes to join IOST. In addition, the IOST dev team optimized the code quality to improve the stability of the mainnet when running programs, improved code testing to ensure security, and designed a better code management.Below are the detailed updates, new functions and the code optimization of the latest mainnet version:Two Major Updates1. Further improvement of the cryptographic libraryIn the previous version v3.3.1., we had added a new hash function to the on-chain cryptography library: ripemd160.Cross-chain atomic swaps are an increasingly widely-used requirement. At the moment, the most common implementation of the atomic swap is Hash Time Locked Contracts, being the ripemd160 protocol is one of its most important cornerstones. Projects like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Decred, etc., also make use of ripemd160 for Atomic Swap.References:https://github.com/decred/atomicswaphttps://github.com/AltCoinExchange/ethatomicswapAfter IOST integrates ripemd160, third-party developers will be able to implement atomic swaps with other mainstream chains. Furthermore, a completely decentralized cross-chain exchange will also become a reality.2. Expired data cleaningWhen a new node joins the IOST ecosystem, it is often a requirement to download a blockchain snapshot to start it. The current snapshots are over 200GB which requires massive data traffic and disk storage. This massive data requirement is a potential obstacle to limit new nodes from joining.In version 3.3.2, we developed a tool for cropping block data that can delete early block data. It can reduce the disk usage by 20 times, from about 240GB to just 13GB, without any side effects to a node’s regular operations.For nodes that will not produce blocks, it is recommended to use the simplified snapshots to start the blockchain.Related documents:https://developers.iost.io/docs/en/4-running-iost-node/Deployment.html#snapshot-with-pruned-historyThree Main Code Quality Improvements1. Improved program stability at runtimeIn the previous mainnet version v3.3.1, we have already fixed a minor but persistent memory leak. This fix improves the stability of the program operation.2. Test boostIn v3.3.2, we updated the testing and continuous integration of the code. Stronger testing results in better reliability.3. Better code managementIn v3.3.2, we switched the Golang dependency management to Google’s recently launched Go Modules, among other external dependencies that were also upgraded. This will simplify our code and let us implement the improvements proposed by the community more easily. The points described are beneficial for the long-term evolution, bugs fixing, operating efficiency and maintainability of the IOST mainnet.Future PlansThe short-term focus will be to improve IOST's cross-chain technology with third-party partners.Specifically, we will implement IOST's light nodes in a well-known cross-chain ecosystem. This requires us to make some corresponding changes to the IOST main chain, such as generating a receipt every time a block producer node is rotated and implementing a progressive Merkel tree to facilitate block verification on light nodes. This may require one to two incompatible version upgrades.Constant iteration and updates are the solid foundation for IOST mainnet's stable operation. The release of Olympus v3.3.2 is another proof of our continuous development and technological innovation. IOST will keep upgrading the mainnet in conjunction with the Dawn of IOST plan.From here, we would like to express our gratitude to the IOST development team for your unwavering efforts and welcome all new developers to join our developer community.

IOST Hackathon in Japan| Un...

On Feb 20 and 21 2020, IOST jointly hosted a 2-day “Education x Blockchain” HIVEHack hackathon with the well-known private university Kindai in Japan, who provided the venue and incentivize professors and students to participate in the Hackathon. This event was a great success with the missions to:create higher awareness & understanding of blockchain and IOST among the talented young developersenable non-tech background students to experience programming, product development and create a prototype using a smart contract programmingunlock the potentials of the young talents and attract the future top-tier developers and teams from the Kindai University and its partners to the IOST ecosystem.Most hackathons are sponsored or awarded by large companies, but it is rare to involve creating prototypes (products programed by smart contracts). This time, IOST and the university professor have set and achieved this clear goal to allow students (including non-technical background students) to create prototypes using smart contracts. With the participation of 5 guest speakers, 1 local media and 19 enthusiastic students, the event was a great 2-day learning and growth journey for every participant.The IOST foundation would like to express our gratitude towards the Kindai University and special thanks to Asst. Prof. Moriyama., the students and the guest speakers for making this educational event happen.Since the set-up of IOST’s Japanese branch, IOST has been committed to promoting free education activities on blockchain technology in Japan while also scouting and training potential blockchain engineers. In 2019, IOST’s “Blockchain Free Education Program” was launched in 7 universities and educational institutions in Japan and provided blockchain courses to over 300 students.DAY 1 of HackathonMr. Terry Wang, CTO, IOST, Guest SpeakerIOST Co-founder Terry gave an opening speech to welcome the event participants into this 2-day growth journey. Due to the Corona Outbreak situation and restrictions, Tery could only interact with the participants via online video call. He shared his personal story from being a student at Princeton University, a Research Teaching Assistant after graduation, followed by being an Engineer in tech startups in Silicon Valley, and now started up his own company- a leading blockchain network- IOST.Terry provided the highlights on IOST technology and its benefits for programmers such as using Javascript and the ability to update smart contracts after deploying on IOST as compared to other blockchain networks. He wished the student to learn and grow from this and the future opportunities brought to them.Mr. Masato Shikata, Designer, Hachidori Inc, Guest SpeakerMr. Masato Shikata launched a fashion brand at the age of 17 and started web production himself for branding. He accumulated experiences in various fields from fashion to IT and later on, joined Hachidori Inc to manage designs, engineering, customer service, marketing and strategy planning.Tips and advice on product development procedures such as design thinking and prototype making were delivered to the students. Masato said “Product development is making things you haven’t seen yet. Sometimes it’s better to write working code quickly than writing good codes with spending a lot of time”.Students also gained hands-on experience with basic knowledge of blockchain technology, and smart contracts lectured by IOST core community, EverSystem engineering team.Blockchain Hackathon started. 4 teams- IOSTicket, TAS, Good Job, and Health Conscious presented with four ideas of products on the first day.Students stayed up late to continue their developments and working on smart contract programming.DAY 2 of HackathonOn the first day, the students learned about the procedures for product development including the “concepts and ideas”. On the second day, they received the legal knowledge necessary to commercialize the product, and advice from experts to start a startup.Mr. Jim Maricondo, WAVE Financial, Guest SpeakerJim is a master’s degree holder in computer science at Stanford University. He was formerly a Japanese GM of ConsenSys and had rich experiences in demonstration experiments of blockchain technology with enterprises. Jim introduced examples of tech startups in Silicon Valley to the students.Mr. Yui Takai, Attorney at Law — ZeLo Law Firm, Guest SpeakerZeLo provides product development and business/crypto-asset support using blockchain technology. Takai described the privacy policy of products that utilize blockchain technology.Students concentrated on working on smart contract and team presentationThe time is up! Teams’ Product Presentations!All teams were able to create prototype products using smart contracts (programs running on the blockchain). Students with no programming experience on the team managed to experience programming some of the products.Teams and Products DetailsTASMAccess (Room entry & exit management) control system. Hash the MAC address (personal device) and record connection / disconnection with the access point as entry / exit. It will be implemented in Kinki University Electronic Commerce Laboratory.IOSTicketCoupon issue application (smartphone compatible). Create a blockchain main net account just by entering its name. Issuers (companies, event organizers, etc.) and users can check the history. Encourage the natural occurrence of the community.Good Job!Records the history of the corporate website (URL) privacy policy. You can add applications as bookmarks. Visualize how IT giants work with our information.Health ConsciousRecords health data such as heart rate. Encourage the formation of a community where people with illness can interact openly. This team was attended by an entrepreneurer who started a genetic medicine information platform startup during studying at Kindi University.Some students started programming from the age of 11 while students who have no programming experience, all provided positive feedback about their learning and takeaways with IOST’s 2-day Hackathon Event.After the presentation, all participants voted for the students who thought they worked hardest using a voting system using blockchain technology created by graduate students of Moriyama Laboratory.IOST Foundation is glad to have launched multiple successful educational programs in Japan to empower the next generation into the blockchain technology. Let’s unleash the power of blockchain, and unlock the potentials of the future talents!Join The IOST Community!With a mainnet that is one-year-old, IOST has swiftly risen to become a world-leading public chain renowned for its numerous government collaborations and enterprise partnerships around the world.IOST’s Partner Program is widely praised as one of the best staking programs globally by blockchain research institutions for its attractive returns, low risk and ease of use.

IOST X Liebi | Interoperabi...

In the current blockchain industry, almost every blockchain project is an independent ecosystem composed of its own users, tokens, and DApps with lacking connection to the outside world. This is a potential barrier to the future development of blockchain in general. IOST believes that the ultimate solution to the barrier is through cross-chain technology.In August 2019, IOST collaborated with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)of Singapore to seek the best interoperability solution. Liebi, a Chinese development team with rich experience in the field, is chosen as the winner to work with the IOST development team on the seamless IOST cross-chain bridge that enables the transfer of the information, transactions and asset values between IOST and other blockchains.IOST Cross-Chain Bridge: Bringing the Internet of Value to RealityAmong the numerous problems that blockchains face, the weak interoperability (if any) between them has greatly limited the mass adoption. For both private and public blockchains, the key to realizing the Internet of Value lies in the cross-chain technology. It is a solution for the isolationism in the blockchain industry, and a bridge for expansion and connection with the outside world.Through the IOST cross-chain bridge, IOST blocks can be easily forwarded and mapped to different blockchain networks through the relay chain.For users, IOST cross-chain bridge enables cross-chain asset transactions, and other services in the relay chain, e.g. DeFi, DEX, Staking, etc. It can bring extra liquidity for the asset and enhanced security to users.For developers, IOST cross-chain bridge can enable cross-chain smart contract interoperation, reduce multi-chain development costs, realize multi-chain user sharing, data interconnection, and interoperability.IOST Cross-Chain Bridge Architecture and Work ProgressCross-chain architecture diagramIOST cross-chain bridge is an open-source project based on Substrate. Combined with Relay Service and multi-signature mechanisms, it can build a secure, flexible, and scalable cross-chain without modifying the core functions of IOST. The overall solution includes Inter-chain communication, runtime modules, and guaranteed security.Currently, we are working on the development of the base modules for inter-chain communication, including RUST-IOST RPC interface encapsulation, IOST node transformation, etc. In this solution, the transformed IOST light nodes actively collect transactions broadcasted by the IOST mainnet, the Relay Service then verifies the Merkle Tree block header, and finally forwards the data.Inter-chain communication IOST -> side chainOn the other side, the side chain receives the blocks from the Relay Service and packages them into the relay network to share the block data with other blockchain networks. Correspondingly, IOST light nodes will also collect other network’s blocks forwarded from the Relay Service, and after verification, broadcast them on the IOST mainnet, so users can directly utilize cross-chain smart contracts deployed on the IOST mainnet to complete operations.Inter-chain communication side chain -> IOSTHow Can I Participate in the Development and Promotion of the Cross-Chain Bridge?As A DeveloperIf you are capable of developing based on Rust and Golang, you are very welcome to submit a Pull Request or Run test in Rust-IOST, IOST Relay Service, Runtime and other repositories, and send us feedback. If you are a tech enthusiast, you can read the source code and related technical articles on IOST cross-chain bridge to learn how to integrate IOST cross-chain bridge to your own development.Related codebase:bifrost-codes/bifrostbifrost-codes/rust-iostAs a UserIf you are a Liebi voter, kindly forward this article so that more people get to know the progress of IOST in interoperability.

In the future, both parties will jointly develop and accelerate the application of blockchain + IoT in real world; this will also become IOST’s establishment in the field of the Internet of Things.Internet of Things — Internet of EverythingThe Internet of Things is an extension of the current Internet.IoT is a highly integrated and comprehensive application of next-gen IT, it uses perception technology and intelligent devices to perceive and identify the physical world. Through Internet transmission and interconnection, the IoT performs calculation, processing & knowledge mining, and realizes the information interaction and seamless link between people and things, things and things, that is, the interconnection of all things and deep perception to achieve real-time control, accurate management and and scientific decision-making of the physical world.In recent years, the Internet of Things network and related businesses have developed rapidly; with the fast growing demand for access to things (both physical and virtual), existing IoT networks and business platforms based on centralized trust management will find themselves challenged with the new needs of consumers.Authoritative agencies predict that the number of IoT connections will exceed 50 billion in 2020 and may exceed 100 billion in 2025. The Internet of Everything will reshape the existing networks and business platforms. At the same time, the Internet of Everything will also pose huge challenges to existing IoT networks and business platforms, including: expansion capabilities, inter-network collaboration, security and privacy protection, trust mechanisms, communication collaboration and more.The core technology of blockchain is computing and cluster trusted collaboration mechanisms in a distributed environment. It delivers solutions to the challenges of scalability, collaboration capabilities, trusted relationships, and security protection faced by the Internet of Things. This partnership between IOST and INT will combine the best of blockchain with IoT to open up the “last mile”, turning data into value for the Internet of Things, and jointly promote more applications that use blockchain + Internet of Things.IOST x INT: Blockchain x Internet of ThingsGartner, an international research and advisory agency, research based on more than 500 U.S. companies shows that the Internet of Things + Blockchain has developed much faster than expected at first and that 75% of the companies have integrated blockchain technology or plan to do so by the end of 2020.This means blockchain + IoT applications will be even more widely used in various fields and that IOST will also have the opportunity to reach cooperation with more enterprises, using blockchain technology to empower Internet of Things applications and adding extra value to the data generated.As a leading public chain project, IOST specializes in the research and development of blockchain technology, it’s popularity in the industry comes from its growing scalability and high security; as mentioned in this article, IOST is partnered with the leading drone dedicated global enterprise EHang. IOST uses blockchain technology to provide Ehang with a secure and reliable data management system, and encrypts and verifies operating system data, ensuring that the data of the drone’s operating system is authentic, valid, and tamper-proof.INT Chain project evolved from the development IoT structure system to become the world’s first bottom-up application platform which created a new generation of IoT + blockchain interaction standards. INT Chain is also partnered with well-known companies such as China Telecom, ZTE, and Hubei Industry and Construction Group.The cooperation with IOST will focus on the exchange of knowledge in the application Blockchain + IoT and joint research of the its integration, the development of related applications, and the active deploy of IoT in the blockchain ecosystem. In addition, INT Chain’s numerous enterprise resources will also bring more potential partners and applications to IOST.“In this cooperation with IOST, we will share the accumulated experience and technology in the application of IoT.

IOST X ROAD | Working Toget...

Alongside the development of smart cities and smart transport, in recent years, the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) has also been in the spotlight. Blockchain technology can help IoV to evolve with its unique data authenticity confirmation feature and by helping all parties who participate in data generation coordinate their interests.By the rapid expansion of 5G connectivity, IoV industry, which requires high levels of communication and connection features, will also be able to accelerate its development and a large number of new use cases and business models will flourish in the industry. As an efficient, trustworthy, and technology-driven blockchain project, IOST is paying close attention to the application of blockchain technology in the field of Internet of Vehicles.Recently, IOST and ROAD have reached a strategic partnership. Both parties will explore common areas in multiple application scenarios such as on-chain vehicles, human-vehicle interaction, vehicle to vehicle communication and vehicle-road connectivity, to jointly promote the market and development of IoV systems in the 5G network environment.ROAD to assist IOST boost IoV applicationsIOST is a blockchain platform developed for online services providers. Based on its original PoB consensus mechanism and the layer2 expansion scheme, IOST can realize horizontal expansion and high throughput, providing value creation for third-party developers, content creators and enterprises.IOST is more decentralized than the DPoS based EOS and more scalable than Ethereum. After the mainnet launch, IOST has become one of the world’s big 4 leading DApp platforms alongside Ethereum, EOS and Tron.ROAD will join the IOST ecosystem and open vehicle data to IOST, it will also assist IOST in building a decentralized IoV node and open APIs to the IOST network. In the future, both parties will have a large amount of data exchange and the yet traditional payment services that are enabled on ROAD will be open to evolve with the smart contracts on IOST.At present, IOST intends to create a world-class blockchain technology infrastructure; through this cooperation with ROAD, IOST can explore and open the automotive industry to blockchain application scenarios and serve the global automotive industry and users.Blockchain technology to drive the IoV business revolutionAt present, there are 330 million owned cars in China and more than 1.2 billion units worldwide: maintenance services, second-hand market, financial services and other segments form a huge market, some reports even show that it might reach a $800 billion annual market cap; and there are yet nearly infinite amounts of data to be collected. What is unique of this market is that the collection, authentication and exchange environment of automobile data is still the weakest field in the industry.Every kind of data produced in the life cycle of a car, from the manufacturing stage to sales, maintenance, daily use, and re-circulation has an important application value. However, these data are not being effectively protected and have not been squeezed to the fullest, also, the actual data contributors rarely obtain benefits from it and the highly decentralized nature of data also makes them difficult to be collected, authenticated, and to maintain. As a result, a large number of black box transactions occur in the automotive data market.ROAD aims to create an interactive and accounting system based on blockchain technology that accompanies vehicles during its life cycle, the auto-ledger. The auto-ledger uses individual interactions and cluster intelligence to build a ROAD vehicle network and intelligent transportation ecosystem to realise business applications, it will achieve data authenticity and privacy protection with blockchain. In this ecosystem, ROAD tokens will be used to coordinate the resource exchange between the vehicle nodes and the blockchains.IOST and ROAD will jointly explore common ground in multiple application scenarios such as on-chain vehicles, human -vehicle interaction, vehicle to vehicle communication and vehicle -road connectivity; promote the market and development of IoV systems under the 5G network environment and use blockchain technology for car purchasing, car utilization and driving, roads & city management along with other scenarios.This partnership is another example of the real world application of IOST blockchain technology. IOST along with developers and communities is committed to build the world’s first decentralized blockchain project based on scalability and the world’s largest decentralized system. In the future, IOST and ROAD will also have more cooperation in terms of technology development, applications and communities.About ROAD teamOfficial website: https://roadpro.ioMost of the ROAD team members are former Alibaba or have previously worked in car related Internet platforms or companies, providing them experience in the field and in business development.Founder Li YanLinLi has worked in Alibaba China for 6 years as manager of the exhibition development department, he was responsible of the exhibition network, professional market channels, government relations and innovation.

IOST X Suterusu | Providing...

IOST X Suterusu | Providing Layer 2 Privacy Protection and Enabling More Application Scenarios for IOSTWhile the improvement of blockchain computing performance is driving the acceleration of blockchain applications, the lack of privacy and transaction data protection are important factors that could restrict the general development of blockchain.To this end, IOST recently reached strategic partnership with the privacy protection centered project Suterusu, both parties will carry out in-depth technical cooperation on blockchain privacy protection and applications.Suterusu will use their zero-knowledge protocol ZK-ConSNARK to build a Layer-2 sidechain for IOST enabling functions such as private transfers, private finance and private contracts on IOST, also, it can provide IOST based DeFi projects higher levels of privacy protection.Privacy protection to make on-chain data more securePrivacy protection: protection of personal data on the Internet.The main reason why for the internet to be so relevant in the changes produced in human society throughout the 20th century and so important in our daily life is because of the data generated through this network. The problem comes when in order for that data to be processed and used, privacy is affected and data must become visible, that is, for this data to be useful, it must be visible. This situation has caused data to be frequently sold and misused, while Internet giants can make huge profits individuals can only be used by Internet companies to become various recommended counters based on the data they generate.Addressing data leaks and misuses requires technological innovation.Privacy computing is the cutting-edge technology that by changing the way data is used, can make data “usable and invisible”, this is the real deal and what is actually needed for privacy protection. In fact, both the GDPR in Europe and California ’s legislation on privacy data protection show that the new proposition of data protection on the Internet age is clear. As result, privacy computing is becoming a hot track for the active participation of large global Internet companies and financial companies.Privacy is also an extremely important topic in encryption. Companies and individuals may not wish to publish all their information on the blockchain without any kind of restrictions and let them be read by others at will. Taking Ethereum as example, its smart contract technology does not provide privacy protection, so users’ data on smart contracts can be seen and tracked by anyone, this greatly limits the application of their technology in real world. For data and information that may need higher privacy protection, public ledgers that expose information on the blockchain are not suitable, hece, when IOST provides such kind of privacy protection on-chain, it will greatly benefit the cooperation between IOST, more enterprises and governments.IOST X Suterusu: public chain + privacy protection to enable more real world applicationsSuterusu’s technology is based on their original zero-knowledge proof protocol ZK-conSNARK, which supports heterogeneous blockchains to implement privacy protection functions, without the need for “trusted presets”; optimized ZKP for faster proof speed; and SuterVM that supports smart contracts, which can achieve privacy protection for digital assets.Regarding the partnership between IOST and Suterusu, Suterusu CEO Hou Zheng Peng said: “IOST has improved the computing efficiency of the public chain, especially in terms of decentralization and smart contracts, also, the IOST ecosystem construction strategy very innovative. Suterusu will use the knowledge in the field of privacy protection technology to make a positive contribution to the construction of IOST ecosystem.”IOST X Suterusu: The combination of public chain and privacy protection will provide more application scenarios for IOST in digital finance and DApps such as zero-knowledge identity authentication.A. Digital financeTraceless on-chain transactionsOn-chain. transactions are the basic function of the blockchain. Suterusu can support IOST to protect the core information of transactions made on the IOST chain. Suterusu’s zk-conSNARK does not require a “trusted preset” and can achieve “constant-level traffic”. These two characteristics will also directly improve the security and verification efficiency of IOST mainnet transactions.2. Decentralized paymentsBlockchain payment can be used to expand financial services and improve cross-border financial efficiency. The concept of “controllable anonymity” has been explicitly proposed in the Digitial Currency Electronic Payment (DCEP) plan proposed by the People’s Bank of China, Suterusu can provide “controllable anonymity” for IOST in the payment field, which is of great help for the application and adoption of IOST decentralized payment.3. Decentralized Financial DeFiIn the DeFi, Suterusu can support IOST and implement a smart contract function with more application value. For example, some preset rules can be set for the contract: Regulations in different countries that may be different. Certain assets can only be sent to users of certain nationalities; or certain assets can only be received by accounts that meet certain conditions, such as the number of assets held to a certain level and the length of time held. Everyone can see that these preset rules are enforced, but information about the amount of the transfer, what kind of assets and the person who transferred it is protected.B. Decentralized applications such as zero-knowledge authenticationCurrently, password-based authentication protocols are widely used on websites. So when users log on to the website, their identity will be immediately leaked to the webmaster; however, if users use zero-knowledge proof of identity, they can guarantee their privacy when logging on to the website. Basic Attention is a project based on the blockchain to help users browse the Internet without trace, with tens of millions of monthly active users, it is one of the most widely adopted projects in the blockchain field. The partnership between IOST and Suterusu will provide privacy protection for the construction of decentralized applications based on IOST, guaranteeing the user’s data privacy and data security.Through this partnership, IOST will achieve on-chain data privacy protection; this will greatly broaden the practical application of IOST public chain technology and will also provide more private and security services to the IOST mainnet users.In the future, IOST will go hand in hand with Suterusu to conduct in-depth technical research and cooperation in cryptography applications, blockchain privacy protection and other aspects, working together on mass adoption, so that blockchain technology truly benefits everyone.About the Suterusu teamSuterusu, giving all tokens privacy.Website: www.suterusu.iCEO Hou ZhengPengMr Hou has been engaged in the development and promotion of open source projects for many years.

IOST VS Coronavirus:AIOU’s ...

The coronavirus epidemic is affecting billions of people in China and beyond, and people worldwide is trying to help by donating materials in need. However, traditional charities are usually inefficient, insufficiently open & transparent and slow & questionable in the matter of distribution. Their credibility was further compromised due to the recent case of Wuhan RedCross organization.As a blockchain technology company, IOST is fully aware of its social responsibility and deeply cares about the epidemic in Wuhan. Last week, Aiou Technology, a project in IOST’s ecosystem, launched a charity information disclosure platform based on blockchain technology, in conjunction with Ningbo and Changsha local governments, the China Enterprise Federation and China Software Association, to promote the transparency of charity organizations and contribute to the prevention and control of the epidemic.The Fight Against Corona Virus Was Compromised Due To Long-Existing ProblemsCorona virus can infect both animals and people and cause illnesses of the respiratory tract. The infections can range from the common cold to dangerous conditions like Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS also caused by a coronavirus.On December 8, 2019, a case of unexplained pneumonia was found in Wuhan.On January 9, 2020, the pneumonia pathogen was initially identified as a novel coronavirus.On January 23, in order to prevent the epidemic from further spreading by the high-density population movement brought in by Spring Break in China, Wuhan announced in the early hours of the day that it would “close the city” at 10:00, declaring quarantine.Wuhan had instantly attracted the attention of all people throughout the country and numerous supplies swarmed to the disaster area. In addition to the funds allocated by the central government, there were also donations coming from home and abroad.However, the situation did not turn out the way as expected by the public: on one side, there was a large number of donations of medical supplies, while on the other side, lack of material necessary to fight against the epidemic was reportedly in great short, with many hospitals directly and openly asking the community for help.Subsequently, in response to the public request, local Red Cross announced the distribution of the medical materials and thus exposed countless problems. This completely shattered the credibility of all charitable institutions and the general public are unwilling to make any more donations to such organisations and now looking for other ways to donate and rescue Wuhan.A series of problems emerged from this incident: flaws in information disclosure; unreasonable donation distribution; barriers along the way transporting emergency supplies; etc. How to solve these problems to make charities operate more efficiently, openly, and fairly?IOST Against Corona Virus: Improve Transparency For Charities By Blockchain TechnologyBlockchain is essentially a distributed database with the advantages of being open, transparent, traceable, and difficult to tamper. With non-temperability and traceability at the heart of charity information disclosure, blockchain technology is the perfect candidate to improve the credibility of public welfare organizations.As blockchain is a decentralized public ledger, by recording all donations on this ledger, donors and recipients can be effectively connected and everyone can check the flow of donated materials.In addition, the use of blockchain smart contracts can also solve problems such as complex processes and black box operations in traditional charity projects. All the terms and execution process of the smart contract are formulated in advance and carried out under the absolute control of the system. The contract cannot be modified after deployment and neither party can interfere with the execution of the contract. Therefore, smart contracts can efficiently update real-time donation information and accurately execute each donation.In response, to use technology to promote the transparency of charity and fight against the epidemic, the IOST’s ecosystem project Aiou Technology has joined the Ningbo and Changsha government, the China Enterprise Federation, and the China Software Association to launch a information disclosure platform based on the research and development of blockchain technology.Aiou charity information disclosure platform will promote the transparency of charities and help the epidemic prevention and control. As the general public questions charity organisations for not being open nor transparent, blockchain technology can help restore the trust in charity industry by uploading material donation data and usage information to the blockchain, enhancing the transparency and credibility of the informationAiou Information Disclosure PlatformNumerous institutions are on the Aiou information disclosure platform. Whenever some particular or an organization wishes to donate materials or funds to a certain institution, they just need to register on the platform and then they will be able to see the all donation details and also material reception & distribution processes details.For more information, please visit:sy.aioukeji.net.In addition, through this platform, users can also view the summary information, the status of current donations and expenditures in real time. As described in this article, the entire process is completely transparent, traceable and cannot be tampered.May the epidemic recede as soon as possible and all front line medical staff get back home safely; we also hope that with the help of blockchain technology, charity and public welfare can be more transparent, fast and accurate!IOST VS Coronavirus:AIOU’s Charity Information Disclosure Platform Officially Launched! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

It only help blockchain companies to explore the Swiss market from the perspective of laws and regulations, but also provides professional consulting services for leading projects in the crypto field such as Ethereum and Tezos.On Jan 27, Terry, co-founder of IOST, Makoto, Head of IOST Japan, Takashi from node partner PHI, Dr. Andreas Furrer from MME and the staff of the Swiss Embassy in Japan held a business meeting. The staff of the Swiss Embassy in Japan also specially traveled from Japan back to Switzerland to facilitate the organization of this meeting.At the meeting, Dr. Andreas Furrer explained in detail how blockchain companies can enter the Swiss market, and discussed the possibilities and processes related to IOST’s launch on the Swiss Exchange. A listing on the Swiss Exchange will greatly enhance IOST’s brand equity and positioning within the crypto industry.Dr. Andreas Furrer said: “If you plan to register a company in a country, you need to understand not only the country’s laws on blockchain technology, but also the relevant legal frameworks that have long been created to support the new bill. In general, It ’s important to understand the laws of that country.”IOST X Zug City Council & Crypto Valley AssociationZug has a reputation as the “crypto valley” in the blockchain industry. With its friendly tax policies and regulations, it has attracted more than 800 blockchain companies, including Ethereum.On the afternoon of Jan 27, IOST team had a business discussion with the Swiss Zug government and the head of the Crypto Valley Association.At the meeting, Terry introduced the IOST project and its application prospects to the Zug government. Mr. Roman Weiss of the Swiss Zug Government and Mr. Martin Berweger of the Crypto Valley Association introduced the preferential policies of establishing a branch in Zug to IOST and provided relevant suggestions for IOST’s entry into the Swiss market.Both business meetings during the Swiss trip were conducted with the assistance of the Swiss Embassy in Japan. Here, IOST expresses our sincere gratitude to the Swiss Embassy in Japan.IOST x University of ZurichThe University of Zurich is located in Switzerland’s largest city, Zurich, and is a world-renowned state research university. Founded in 1833, with over 180 years of history, it has now become Switzerland’s largest and most powerful university. Twelve Nobel Laureates, including Roentgen, the first Nobel Laureate in Physics, Einstein, the “Great Man of the Century”, and Jean Lindenman, co-discoverers of interferon, have all studied or worked here.The school established a Blockchain Center (BCC) consisting of 15 professors, focusing on knowledge creation and sharing on blockchain and related technologies.On the morning of January 29, IOST team had an in-depth talk about blockchain technology with Dr. Tossene, associate professor of BCC at the University of Zurich.At the meeting, IOST reached a cooperation with the University of Zurich.

IOST Seoul Meetup: It’s A W...

On Monday, the 13th, IOST Korea Branch held an offline meetup to kickstart 2020! Despite the cold weather, numerous people attended the meetup with community members, journalists, KOLs, industry leaders, investors, and many others all joining the event.This event was a meaningful opportunity to share the achievements and future plans of IOST. We would like to thank all attendees once again for your participation!The following Youtube video is created by KOL D.Go of D.Street, IOST Korea Node. You can feel the atmosphere of IOST Korea Meetup briefly through the video.https://medium.com/media/1d9bd2519aceca6bf5a435dbf5082681/hrefThe event was held in Monaco Space, Gangnam, Korea. A total of 150 people registered in less than a week, and about 130 people participated braved the cold weather of Seoul to turn up that day.Escalator to the venueThe itinerary of this meetup was as follows:Opening introductionWhy I chose IOST Platform as a developerQED: Speech by a Tier-1 servi nodePast achievements of IOST and 2020 planTerry: IOST CTO addressBlake: IOST Korea country manager presentationLive Q&A: QED & BlakeIOST Hoodie lucky drawNetworkingQED: Why I chose IOST over other platforms as a developerMost blockchain projects always paint a grand vision to the public about their technology. However, apart from the testnet results, very few projects are successful in the time frame promised to the actual mainnet launch. Also, if you actually pick out the platform on which your Dapp runs, that number must be decreased. Among them, IOST, ETH, EOS, and TRON are the platforms on which continuous user inflow and DAPP ecosystem are expanded. IOST is clearly a latecomer if compared to the other 3 platforms. However, IOST has a huge advantage compared to ETH, EOS and TRON. QED, which is 1st tier servi node, explained in detail the benefits of the IOST platform.The three most important elements of the platform that QED considered for development were:Fast Block Finality timeStable and low resource feesEase of developmentFast Block Finality timeIn general, you might think that if the response time is fast, everything would be okay. However, there are more things to consider. If you compare IOST to EOS on block time, you can think of it as 0.5s, and you might think that IOST doesn’t have benefit to use.But if you count the time considering Block Finality, which is recorded as a completely immutable block, the IOST is the fastest 29.5s among four public chains. In other words, IOST is the platform that provides the fastest Block Finality Time.Stable and low resource feesIn case of Ethereum, there is a fee per transaction, and user needs to pay the fee. It can be very expensive if the developer supports all of them. Because of this, QED decided to use the staking model. TRON was not suitable because of its slow block time (3 second), which leaves only EOS and IOST remaining.As many blockchain developers know, EOS was excluded because there were too many cases where DAPPs could not play due to EOS CPU & resource problems. If we look closer at the fee model of IOST:The fees incurred by a blockchain are divided into 3 main thingsthe operations costs of processing, such as plus, subtract, multiply,the network costs incurred when a transaction is hit on a node,the storage costs of storing a value.In case of Ethereum, those three are just called GAS. In case of EOS, the contract operation cost is CPU, network cost is NET, and storage cost is RAM. IOST combines contract operation cost and network cost and called iGAS, and contract storage cost is called iRAM.As long as you stake, iRam will charge itself and you will not pay any fee. Therefore, the user doesn’t have to care about Resources, not like EOS.If the transaction stores a value in the blockchain, you will need to pay storage costs. If you delete the saved value on the blockchain, you can refund the storage cost that you paid. Also, if the transaction does not store a value, it is available for free.Also, developer could pay user’s storage cost instead of user. Comparing IOST and EOS, IOST is 7 times cheaper. Therefore, QED concluded that IOST has the most attractive resources model for developers. QED thought that IOST is really well developed platform with lots of consideration for many potential cases.Easy to developQED thought it shouldn’t be difficult to develop blockchain services. People say that it is difficult to develop unless they are familiar with the language. When this happens,people need to find a solution. However, if there are not enough information, it’s hard to figure the problem out.When QED thought it was well developed but he got an error and he doesn’t know why. One of the good example is Solidity.The above statements are very popular code. However, when used in Solidity, an error occurs.Comparing the development languages of the four platforms shows that ETH and TRON use Solidity, EOS uses C++, and IOST uses JavaScript. JavaScript language used by IOST is much more familiar to developers than other languages.This table is a survey of the most familiar languages among developers(source: Developerr’s Q&A platform called Stack Overflow). While the EOS contract language, C ++, is mid-range, JavaScript is the language that developers are most familiar with. IOST can develop contracts using JavaScript.Since the development language is a familiar language, there is an advantage of IOST when writing smart contracts. But there is one more advantage of the IOST platform. Ethereum is in principle impossible to upgrade contracts. (This part is a controversial part among blockchain developers. Smart contracts should / should not be upgradeable)IOST, on the other hand, can upgrade smart contract, allowing contract owners to enable or disable upgrades.Based on the three points above, QED chose the IOST platform. If you would like to check the full PowerPoint, please refer to the following link.QED PPT: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1j3YF9xlYWQGA6XZB3ZgljhqOSZOBp8dJoapH-sS2VlA/edit?usp=sharingAt the end of the presentation, QED demonstrated a game his team developed, showing how fast the actual IOST is.After the announcement of the QED, a video of CTO Terry, who supposed to visit Korea, was played. Unfortunately, Terry can’t visit Korea this time.IOST CTO Terry regretted not being able to attend the Korea Meetup. In this video, Terry explained in detail to the Korean IOST community what IOST is aiming for in the first half of 2020. Since then, Korean country manager Blake has delivered more details on IOST’s business results and plans for 2020.Public blockchain project first invited to CCTV and China’s Great Hall Of The PeopleIOST CTO Terry was invited to CGTN, the global channel of CCTV in the last quarter, to discuss with Huang Zhen, director of the Financial Research Institute of China University of Finance. Terry was also invited to the 17th China ’s Enterprise Development & Blockchain Forum, held at China’s Great Hall Of The People. IOST is the only public blockchain project invited to both parties. These track records exposed IOST to various high level decision makers in China. Based on this, IOST has created the cornerstone for meetings with various governments and companies.Expansion of B2B and B2G projects through AIOU Technology, a subsidiary of IOSTWe will expand the use of consortium chains based on the public blockchain IOST. In addition, discussions are underway with 10 MNCs in China for collaboration in 2020. We will also work with local governments, starting with the Shanghai Police Blockchain Standardization in China. Through this, 2020 IOST intends to achieve two things.We will create sustainable revenue for ourselves and reinvest it in IOST to expand the ecosystem.Through the cooperation of B2B and B2G, we will make a practical use case and achieve mass adoption.Live Q & A took place after the speech by Korean country manager Blake.Participants asked about various contents such as development environment, benefits of participating as a node, business background, and plan for the first half of 2020.The official schedule was finished after a photo shoot, a IOST hoodie lucky-draw, and a networking event. For more than two hours, most participants stayed and listened to the presentation. We would like to thank you again.IOST was able to hear various suggestions from the IOST community through the meetup. IOST will always listen to community opinions and try to reflect them. In the future, we will expand our contact with the community through various methods in Korea as well as in other countries.Thank you for your support of IOST!………………………………………………………..IOST Seoul Meetup: It’s A Wrap! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST Exclusive: Krypton Tyc...

What happened?We heard that the IOST Tycoon players were defeated in the cross-chain melee war because our opponents were more experienced at the game!To help IOST Tycoon players make a comeback, Krypton Tycoon has decided to create a new season exclusively for IOST players and giving them a chance to practice more. After all, practice makes perfect.What’s more, Krypton Tycoon will also reward IOST users who registered before Jan 17 by giving extra benefits to them.Krypton Tycoon IOST-Exclusive Season Will Officially Start On 10 am, Jan 17, GMT+8How to play: Search for “Krypton Tycoon” in the search page of TokenPocket wallet.UpdatesSeason rewards: around 150,000 IOST.Adjusted reward distribution and significantly increased conquest rewards.Added Map checkpoints — you must occupy two plots in the checkpoint to successfully occupy it. The reward for the first occupation will be distributed based on the merits and contributions of players in the victory camp.Added built-in chat system.Added language switching system.Other optimizations.RewardsAs the season is delayed by 2 days, all IOST players who registered before Jan 17 will receive 6 Kevin cards.First Season Rebate PromoIn order to thank IOST players for joining the first cross-chain war season, before the start of this season, Krypto Tycoon will also rebate the players who spent IOST in the last season (excluding the consumption of card draw).All players who spend 1000 IOST in the round will receive 1 General El Welch for every 1000 IOST consumed.For all players who spend between 100–1000 IOST in the round, each time they spend 50 IOST, one Larry Oracle card will be gifted.We also have a secret book for players from Tycoon. Take this secret book and become the strongest player of Krypton Tycoon!Stars Tycoon Player SecretsKrypton Tycoon is a fun but also challenging strategy game. Players with smart strategies has the potential to defeat theoretically more powerful opponents.So how can one become a pro in Krypto Tycoon? See the different strategies below:1. Start with elites accumulationTo be strong, you must first have a strong base. The base of your business empire is your elite cards.There are more than thirty business elites with unique characteristics in the tycoon space. The business elites are the core asset of the tycoon and play the most important role in financial management and battles.The elite has five basic combat attributes: attack, defense, load, production speed, and recruitment speed. Upgrading the elite level and elite skills can improve the elite attributes. The attributes of each elite are different, and using a well-balanced elite mix is ​​the key to winning!Using elite fragments can improve the level of the elite. Currently, there are seven categories: white, green, blue, purple, orange, red, and gold. The higher the level, the higher the elite’s attributes and fighting power!Choose the right combination at the beginning and power up to the maximum level.2. Keep a low profileIs it better to fight at all costs at the beginning without a clear strategy? Or is it better to immerse yourself with developing your base and accumulating before taking action?Numerous experiences tell us that Tycoon is a game that slowly accumulates advantages. If you waste physical strength, resources, and soldiers on difficult plots at the beginning, your development speed will be affected.When the development speed is affected the offensive and defensive forces will also be affected. If an enemy starts targeting you and you get suppressed by the enemy, this situation may turn into a vicious circle, and it may become very difficult for you to turn things around.So, the secret is being overly aggressive at the beginning doesn’t work, it will be very difficult to eventually win the game. Build a strong base, accumulate resources fast and you will be victorious!3. Form AlliancesTycoon is a multiplayer game, so no matter how strong you are, you are at a disadvantage if you are alone. To win in the game, it is important to find good allies in the game!The teammates in camp must be united. The group shall choose a leader with experience to lead the whole team.Secondly, it is helpful to establish connections with players from other factions at the right time. If both sides have common enemies, does it mean that the enemy of our enemy is our ally? ;)While forging alliances, we must beware of the “bad guys” who are might stab you in the back. Always be cautious about the true intentions of other players, whether they are your allies or your enemies.We hope that in this new dedicated season for IOST players, everyone can participate more, and grab a win for the IOST Camp in the subsequent cross-chain melee wars!…………………………………………IOST Exclusive: Krypton Tycoon Season Starts Today! was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

You will receive the money within 1 hour.How to Double the Amount of IOST with ConstantThis tutorial is conducted by a Constant team member.At first, I had 100,000 IOST in my wallet.I used them all to borrow USD.With 1 IOST = $0.004979 USD (as of January 6, 2020)After getting matched, I received $329.82 USD in my Constant account.I used this money to buy IOST on Binance, I got 66,242 IOST coins (1 IOST = $0.004979 USD)Next, I continued to borrow against the IOST I just bought (66,242 IOST):After getting matched, I received $218.48 USDI continued using this money to get 43,880 IOST coins.Again, I continued to borrow against 43,880 IOST coins:After getting matched, I got $144.72 USD, then I used it to buy another 29,066 IOST coins.As you can see, starting from 100,000 IOST to: 100,000 + 66,242 + 43,880 + 29,066 = 239,188. I now have over x2 amount to hold. Imagine the price going up, I will make more money than I normally should have.But remember, If your IOST collateral goes down in value, specifically down to 125%, 120%, and 115%, you will need to top up more coins to keep the original value of your collateral will be liquidated.

Initial Results for IOST Q4...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q4 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.20 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1.32M IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeAssessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from Jan 3rd to Jan 10th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers has been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that where similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q4 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each nodes account. For disputes please contact your regional contact (CN, JP, KR or INTL) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 23:59 Jan 16th (GMT+8).Final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Friday, Jan 17.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by the end of February, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith excellent rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to highly incentive nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative.

IOST Nodes — Contributions ...

IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q4 2019Introduction to the Contribution Reward SystemThe objective of the Contribution Reward System is to incentivize all Nodes to contribute towards building and developing the ecosystem, as well as allowing Nodes that do not receive a large share of votes to still earn a large amount of rewards for significant contributions to the IOST ecosystem.The following document lays out the contribution rewards mechanism and process for IOST Nodes. Any feedback and suggestions on the Contribution Reward System is welcome.Nodes Reward Pool OverviewThe total Nodes Reward Pool is 840M IOST, equivalent to 4% of the total IOST supply. It comprises ofEcosystem Reward Pool (420M, issued by quarter) andToken Issuance Reward Pool (420M, issued by day).Ecosystem Reward Pool includes quarterly-issued Contribution Rating Rewards (210M) and quarterly-issued Share of Votes Rewards (210M).Token Issuance Reward Pool includes daily-distributed Block Production Rewards and daily-distributed Share of Votes Rewards.Ecosystem Reward Pool TimelineDates for Q4 Contribution Rating Rewards:December 24th— December 31st: submissions open for Q4 node contribution reportsJanuary 1st — January 8th: report assessment and ranking by IOST/ICAC & Initial results releaseJanuary 9th: Dispute period & Final results releaseBefore March 30th: Finish the distribution of Contribution Rating RewardsShare of votes snapshots are taken daily, and rewards are based on the average share of votes received for the quarter.Contribution Assessment MethodNodes submit their contribution report each quarter, detailing the contributions they made to the ecosystem for that period and which contribution category is most relevant.These contribution reports are then assessed and ranked for each category starting from the most valuable contribution to the least. Based on these rankings, Nodes are split into Reward Tiers and then issued rewards.Contribution CategoriesNodes can submit reports for 1 of the 5 categories. The chosen category for each Node should be the most relevant one. If there are contributions made outside of this category, they should still be submitted as they will count towards the final ranking.Example: Two Dapp developers launch Dapps of equal value, but if one of the Dapps also create content to promote it, this Node will rank higher.The reward categories are as follows:Content creation and promotionDappsIntegrations (wallets,exchanges,explorers etc) & Technical SupportEvents / meetups / hackathonsCommunity buildingContribution Assessment per CategoryEach contribution report is assessed based on the following criteria for each category.1. Content Creation and PromotionCreating awareness and education about IOST to crypto and mainstream audiences is one of IOST’s most important objectives in order to grow and attract more users and developers. Quality of content is important, but even more so is the number of people this content reaches. Quality content produced should be placed where it can get a lot of exposure outside of the IOST community and shared via social, news and community channels.quality of content (accuracy, production quality)views / clicks / impressions / shares / commentsEnjoyability / watchability2. DappsValue to the ecosystem (e.g is it an interesting, useful novel Dapp, or a clone of an existing Dapp already on IOST)Daily active users (DAU)Daily transactions volume3. Integrations (wallets, exchanges, explorers etc) & Technical SupportValue to ecosystem (is it an interesting, useful novel integration, or a clone of an existing already)Downloads / VisitsDaily active users (DAU)Token volumeQuality and frequency of technical support4. Events / meetups / hackathonsQuality of event (content, topic, speakers etc)Number of attendeesPress / News coverage5. CommunitiesCommunity activity (e.g. airdrop and giveaway)Growth of membersIOST community support and engagementNumber of active usersContribution Assessment Submission FormatContribution reports should be submitted through the official report submission channel: https://iost-eng.typeform.com/to/V3dFPMEach contribution activity should be specified in a numbered list with a clear description and addressing each assessment criteria. As much supporting and verifiable documentation should be included for each activity. Any activity which is not verifiable will not be included in the Node’s ranking.Contribution activities will only be considered in contribution assessments if they are accretive to the ecosystem. Example: Node A casting votes for Node B or Node A providing a specific service (such as marketing or technical) for Node B are not considered contributions given that these are commercial dealings between nodes only.Contribution activities should only cover the time period for each report (3 months). Example: A Dapp’s DAU should only report the increase during this 3 month period. Forward looking statements, such as plans for the next quarter, are not considered in contribution assessment.Contribution Tier RewardsNodes in each tier receive the same amount of reward regardless of category. The 210M Reward Pool based on contribution is divided between tiers in the following way:Each Node receives an equal share of their tiers rewards:Node Reward = Total Tier Reward / Number of Nodes in Tier.…………………………………………IOST Nodes — Contributions Reward Reminder For Q4 2019 was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

When being asked that if there have been any suspicious transactions on IOST, Terry answered no but admitted that one or two third-party DApps may have had problems. However, whenever that occurs, IOST would always communicate with the team and try to prevent the same problem from happening again.Insightful exchanges on regulation took a leading role in the meeting. BAPPEBTI officials shared that crypto-assets like Bitcoin can now be traded legally, authorized by regulation №5/2019. This regulation is designed to protect citizens who want to invest in crypto-assets and provide legal assurance. BAPPEBTI is now working to improve the process of evaluating and issuing licenses for exchanges and tokens that can legally operate in Indonesia. The process is likely to include a risk assessment, trading volume monitoring, and a requirement on paid-up capital minimum, etc. BAPPEBTI also invited IOST to apply to be listed on exchanges in Indonesia.At the end of the meeting, BAPPEBTI representatives expressed their recognition for IOST technology and its business module, and also their hope in future collaboration with IOST, where IOST can provide consulting services for the Indonesian government when conducting explorations in asset tokenization.……………………………………………BAPPEBTI Visited IOST Beijing Office, IOST Invited To Be Indonesian Government Consultant was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST x Fujimi Town | Blockchain Deployment In The Japanese Energy Market, Powered by IOSTIn Fujimi City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan, IOST partnered up with EverySystem and ElDesign to launch a P2P electricity trading project on IOST, and to empower the energy industry.On 14th November 2019, along with over 5 media, the mayor of Fujimi Town, CEO of elDesign, Dr. Wada from EverSystem and IOST Co-founder and CTO, Terry announced the launch of the P2P Electricity Trading Project at a press conference in Fujimi Town.The mayor of Fujimi, Mr. Natori, gave a speech at the press conference.

IOST Co-founder Terry Attended Staking Star Event On InvitationOn Nov 16, IOST Co-founder Terry attended the round table discussion themed the Past, Present, and Future Of Staking Industry, jointly held by Standard Consensus and CoinTime.Terry shared his insights through a speech: It has been less than a year since the booming of Staking economy at the beginning of 2019, and PoS projects only represent less than 10% of the whole market capital now. This number seems low but it shows another picture when you take time into consideration. Meanwhile, PoW mining gains profits through lower-than-normal electricity fee which comes with great risks. But PoS-based Staking economy can be participated by anyone without having to bear high risks. A dialectical approach needs to be taken when comparing the two. From a long-term perspective, neither PoS nor PoW consensus mechanism is the best option. IOST will continue to explore in the underlying structure, to find out the most optimal solution.3.

Most businesses are still keeping the traditional hierarchical structure centering control and efficiency, which was not able to stop the adverse effects brought about by the financial crisis in 2008. Throughout the past few decades, technology is advancing at an unprecedented pace and changing all aspects of our lives. However, the collective decision-making process has not been changed much, which won’t be able to satisfy the current needs.GUILD will take advantage of blockchain technology to solve pain points emerged from the current workflow and coordination mechanism, as well as assist the online working coordination within an organization.PHI will design the project-related workflow on GUILD and plans to form a virtual organization where everything, from design to development, can be done online. Through migrating all workflow and systems online, GUILD will review the organization’s working style, in order to significantly increase efficiency, productivity, and motivation. While developing and operating such a DAO toolkit, GUILD aims to replace traditional companies’ working style.“GUILD” Supports 5 Features To Update The OrganizationThe whole organization has a sense of organizational change.Decentralization of decision-making power within an organization.Open information.Communication.Refinement of purpose and vision sharing.Takashi Oka, CEO — PHI Inc. commented:“I like the company. I can do anything for this company.”“In the world today, I think people who are enjoying work are really only a few happy people. What if people can change their jobs or aims for freelance because they do not like their companies? I think only few people can make such a decision. I am convinced that the company will always be working towards one goal instead of putting profit first.”An Evolution In Governance ModelsRonald Coase points out in The Nature Of The Firm that if the market is very efficient in resource allocation, why do firms still exist? He follows to explain: although the market is able to efficiently allocate resource according to the prices, organizations are more suitable for some economic activities due to the existence of trading cost. Blockchain, especially DAO, can increase trading efficiency while realizing coordination in a decentralized way. IOST hopes to further exploit the advantage of DAO with GUILD in the near future.………………………………………..IOST x GUILD | Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) Service “GUILD” — Bringing All… was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

BISS Exchange Update and FAQ

An update for BISS users who are experiencing issues on the BISS platform.Recently, BISS users have been facing withdrawal issues on BISS exchange. To provide an update for users, we have prepared this FAQ to assist IOST users who are affected by this change in understanding and navigating the current landscape.Frequently Asked QuestionsWhere does BISS sit in the IOST ecosystem?BISS is a node partner in the IOST ecosystem and at the launch of the mainnet, provided a voting platform to users to stake their IOST. BISS is founded by BMAN, a crypto investor and founder of Metropolis Capital. IOST does not own BISS and has no influence or control over their operations, nor access to their trading system and backend.What happened to BISS?According to market sources, it is understood that BISS’ operations have been halted following an enquiry by China’s regulatory authorities around its services offered to users, which may not be aligned with capital controls regulations in China. To safeguard user interests, operations at BISS are halted while the authorities look into the matter. It is understood that BISS is currently cooperating fully with the authorities in the enquiry.Are my funds that are held in BISS still safe?According to market sources, it is understood that users’ funds are safe in BISS given that BISS, in its role as the exchange, is simply acting as the custody for user funds and the ownership and asset rights still belong to the respective users. The enquiry by the authorities are specific to the company’s offerings, and not related to user deposits. It is expected that users will be able to access their funds in due course once the enquiry is completed.How will this affect me as a user on BISS?At the moment, all trading and withdrawals are paused. Once the enquiry is completed, the next steps will be announced. The date of completion for the enquiry has yet to be announced. The Foundation is tracking all updates relating to BISS closely and will aim to inform all our users who use BISS promptly should there be any material change in the situation.What can I do to have more control over my assets in the future?As the popular saying goes — “Not your keys, not your tokens”. Following the mainnet launch, the Foundation had shared various asset management solutions (besides BISS) with our community to manage/vote/access their IOST tokens, such as using iWallet, TokenPocket or PureWallet. We recommend that users create and stake directly through their IOST mainnet account, which gives them full control over their assets. There are always risks associated with having assets held by third parties, as seen in this case with BISS, which may result in adverse effect on users when these third-party intermediaries are compromised.If you would like to create a mainnet account with IOST, please do at: https://www.iostabc.com/wallet/createaccountIf you still have questions or need more guidance, please reach out to any of our admins in the official IOST International Telegram group (t.me/officialios) and they will assist you.How can I contact BISS?If you would like to reach out to BISS directly, you can try the following channels:Website contact form: https://support.biss.com/hc/en-us/requests/newTelegram: t.me/bissexchange…………………………………………….BISS Exchange Update and FAQ was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

IOST’s Progress In Complian...

IOST Powers Forward In Raising Compliance Standards In Accordance With Japanese Blockchain RegulationsWith the advancement of compliance in digital assets, many countries and regions have released related regulations and guidelines. As one of the most mature blockchain markets, Japan is one of the earliest countries to regulate the blockchain industry and provide consumer assurance and protection.In May 25, 2016, the amended Act on Settlement of Funds was passed and took effect on April 1st 2017. In order to comply with Japanese laws, IOST has been actively encouraging DApp development teams to build valuable DApps and working with casino DApps teams for solutions since Sep 2019.For End UsersIOST respects rules and regulations in every market. We have informed every developer of casino DApps to block IPs of users from China and Japan. IOST works closely with governments and shall always respect the boundaries and regulations for its community.DApp CategoriesUp until Oct 21, 2019, there were 49 DApps developed on IOST mainnet, with 11 of which needed improvement in compliance, accounting for less than one-fourth of all IOST DApps. The low proportion was due to the fact that IOST never encouraged developers to construct casino DApps, while providing extra support and assistance for quality DApps, in order to promote the development of DApps.Open-Source Platform ManagementAs an open-source platform, IOST public blockchain allows any developer to build upon it. Hence, the IOST Foundation does not interfere in the development of any DApp. However, the Foundation communicates with developers on a regular basis, offering suggestions regarding long-term operations and the construction of a healthy DApp ecosystem.Relationships With DApp TeamsIOST strives to build a decentralized platform and it does not intervene directly in the commercialization of DApp products. On the contrary, IOST communicated with teams of casino DApps and provided constructive advice on building a healthier IOST DApp ecosystem in collaboration.IOST DApp EcosystemIOST DApp ecosystem obtained radical improvement in its quality, thanks to the Foundation’s efforts. Within two months, the statistics of non-casino DApps (three major measures: DAU, Transactions, and trading volume) has increased rapidly to form the majority (above 50%) of each measure.According to data on DAppRadar.com, casino DApps now account for less than 21% of all DApps in 7-day DAU, transactions and trading volume. This means that in DApp ecosystem, the proportion of casino DApps is relatively low compared to the activity of non-casino Dapps.Establishing Industry Standards To Promote The Compliance In DApp IndustryIOST has already stood out among public chains with its strong compliance position and focus on valuable Dapps outside of casino gaming. IOST also take an active role in the development of its DApp ecosystem and constantly encourage developers to build quality games.In collaboration with traditional game publishers, IOST launched a series of featured games, including Xianjian 5 and IOST Legend. The latter led IOST into a new era of DApp ecosystem: bringing traditional games users to on-chain games, and offering optimal gaming experience to users while giving them high rewards. Meanwhile, Xianjian 5 represents a milestone in the combination of game and blockchain.IOST has also attracted a great number of developers with its Featured DApps Program to build on IOST mainnet, and launched a number of quality games: CryptoNinja, Herorats, XPET, IOST Crypto Sanguo, and Eternal Fafnir. CryptoNinja fully demonstrates the value of blockchain technology being the first full on-chain DApp; Herorats combines games with public welfare to increase the value of games; XPET explores a different way of DApps with its new module of cross-chain game asset authenticity.IOST shall continue to establish leading industry standards and embrace compliance, to promote the legal development of DApp ecosystem.As an open-source platform, IOST will continue to improve the DApp ecosystem through communication with developers and support for quality DApps, while ensuring the maximum level of decentralization of the mainnet:The amount of casino DApps is now below 20% of all DApps.Chinese and Japenese IPs are blocked from casino DApps.DAU, transactions, transaction volume and other measures of casino DApps accounts for less than 21% of the whole ecosystemAddress the risks of casino DApps in community announcements and daily notifications, to warn users of the risks of asset loss and addiction.IOST enhances collaborations with other quality DApp teams by providing resources and stops the promotion of sensitive content.Compared to Ethereum and multiple other mainstream public chains, IOST has obtained the highest level of compliance in DApp ecosystem, which will be a major boost for IOST in its bid to access the Japanese blockchain market.IOST believes that its efforts in compliance will become a good example in the industry. A strong level of compliance is critical for unleashing the potential of blockchain and promoting its mass adoption, and to share the benefits of blockchain technology with the general public.……………………………………………….IOST’s Progress In Compliance With Japenese Blockchain Regulations was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Initial Results for IOST Q3...

Partner and Servi Node report submission for the IOST Q3 Contribution Reward System has now concluded and initial rankings have been assessed. In total, nodes successfully submitted valid reports across 5 categories and from 10 countries.20 nodes successfully achieved Tier 1 status, earning the highest rewards of roughly 1,323,288 IOST each. In total, nearly 53M IOST tokens will be paid out to Nodes across all tiers and categories. Additionally, these rewards constitute only half of the quarterly reward payout, with nodes also receiving their “share of votes” quarterly rewards during the distribution.Total IOST token Contribution Reward System payout per tier and per nodeAssessment and RankingThe contribution report assessment lasted from October 8th to October 15th. Each node’s report was assessed independently by at least 10 individuals from the IOST and ICAC teams.An indicative framework and scoring system per category was used which was then averaged for each report. Nodes were then ranked by average scores in each category. Once the initial tiers has been established, an open and collaborative discussion took place to compare reports that where similar, close in scores or on the board-line of tiers. In a few exceptional cases where assessment was tied and could not be resolved, these nodes were awarded equal ranking. Through this week-long process, the following node rankings were established and displayed below (sorted in no particular order).Disputes and PayoutsIn the next phase and in the spirit of fairness, we will now open up a consultative period where any node that disagrees with their assigned tier can query their result. Nodes must provide specific reasoning for a requested tier change and also highlight which node in an above tier and same category should be rotated. This request will then be assessed and a final decision will be made. After this period, all contribution rewards and share of votes rewards for the Q1 period will be paid out in full and automatically credited to each nodes account. For disputes please contact your regional contact (CN, JP, KR or INTL) for the node ecosystem.Disputes open until 23:59 October 23 (GMT+8).Final rankings and Contribution System will be released on Wednesday, October 23.Contribution rewards payouts will finish by late November, please pay attention to IOST official announcement for updates.Building the IOST Node EcosystemWith very high potential rewards for nodes and their voters, we hope we have demonstrated the high value that building and contributing to the IOST ecosystem can have. With significant rewards, especially for Tier 1 and Tier 2 contributors, we hope to highly incentive nodes to keep contributing to the IOST ecosystem and achieve our goals of being the leading scalable and decentralized public blockchain in the world.For support and advice for specific initiatives from the IOST core team, please contact your local representative. Also, keep an eye on your Node discussion groups for requests for support in several upcoming initiatives run by the core team, these count to your contributions too!To become a node, join the IOST ecosystem and start earning rewards please check out the Servi & Partner Node Registration Guide.……………………………………………Initial Results for IOST Q3 Contribution Rankings and Rewards was originally published in IOST on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
