PyData Berlin 2016 This talk describes BigchainDB. BigchainDB fills a gap in the decentralization ecosystem: a decentralized database, at scale. It has big-data performance levels, a querying system, and a permissioning system that supports public and private versions. It's complementary to decentralized processing platforms like Ethereum, and decentralized file systems like IPFS. BigchainDB is written in Python. This talk describes BigchainDB. BigchainDB fills a gap in the decentralization ecosystem: a decentralized database, at scale. It points to performance of 1 million writes per second throughput, storing petabytes of data, and sub-second latency. The BigchainDB design starts with a distributed database (DB), and through a set of innovations adds blockchain characteristics: decentralized control, immutability, and creation & movement of digital assets. BigchainDB inherits characteristics of modern distributed databases: linear scaling in throughput and capacity with the number of nodes, a full-featured NoSQL query language, efficient querying, and permissioning. Being built on an existing distributed DB, it also inherits enterprise-hardened code for most of its codebase. Scalable capacity means that legally binding con- tracts and certificates may be stored directly on the blockchain database. The permissioning system enables configurations ranging from private enterprise blockchain databases to open, public blockchain databases. BigchainDB is complementary to decentralized processing platforms like Ethereum, and decentralized file systems like InterPlanetary File System (IPFS). This talk describes technology perspectives that led to the BigchainDB design: traditional blockchains, distributed databases, and a case study of the domain name system (DNS). We introduce a concept called blockchain pipelining, which is key to scalability when adding blockchainlike characteristics to the distributed DB. We present a thorough description of BigchainDB, a detailed analysis of latency, and experimental results. The talk concludes with a description of use cases.

Blockchain technology seems to be a causing quite a stir across multiple industries, as the po-tential applications for the innovative technology are being more throughly investigated by every-one from government agencies to international auditor Deloitte. Despite early indications showing skepticism from the banks towards Bitcoin and blockchain-enabled currency, recent news has fo-cussed on a flurry of interest from financial giants into the capabilities of blockchain technology. France’s biggest bank, BNP Paribas is testing the potential of blockchain technology for post trade processes and Société Générale posted a job earlier this year for an “IT developer on bitcoin, blockchains and cryptocurrencies”. French banking institutions aren’t alone either, with Barclays in the UK, Santander in Spain and CitiGroup all investigating the innovative technology in some ca-pacity. Despite this, many fear that banks do not want to use the technology as originally intended, with a a focus on decentralisation and anonymity. It is somewhat saddening to early adopters, that banks will seek to take control over their own blockchains, and decide who can use their versions of the distributed ledger. This approach eliminates the benefits of decentralisation and an open, low-fee payment network, but ultimately makes the innovative technology more straightforward to integrate with existing currency paradigms. Blockchain has unparalleled potential to revolutionise the systems used by banks, by improving efficiency and limiting costs, however it is unclear if the-se benefits will be passed to consumers. The potential benefits of blockchain technology to bank-ing institutions are almost innumerable, for example large business-to-business transfers could be completed with significantly lower costs and even with minimal decentralisation, system-based transaction errors are likely to be diminished. Almost all representatives from banks have cited blockchain as the source of their interest, deeming Bitcoin itself to be nothing more than a distraction from the potential applications of the underlying technological protocol. This is almost an insult to Bitcoin; it’s capabilities as a currency are almost certainly greater than long-standing fiat alternatives, however due to decentralised na-ture of Bitcoin, it instills a sense of fear in traditional financial authorities such as banks, who would stand to lose an enormous amount of power if Bitcoin became a dominant currency. The huge amount of investment into start-ups operating in the Bitcoin space is a clear sign that the cryptocur-rency is likely to continue to grow. Consumers are getting more experienced with alternative pay-ments and e-commerce systems, which will likely lead to further inroads into the banks’ domi-nance. It is worth remembering that many bank executives expressed warnings and reservations about emerging online payments and e-commerce in the mid 90’s, before choosing to adopt this technology only a few years later. New technologies will always be treated with a degree of appre-hension, particularly by those who stand to lose out if they are successful, but banks would do well to listen to consumers, for whom flexibility is king. Bitcoin already provides huge benefits to con-sumers and many of the issues it faces could be alleviated if the banks adopted a more favourable position on the cryptocurrency. With a resolution to the block size debate surely just around the corner, the main issue left facing Bitcoin will likely be the nature of further regulation. Despite all the focus on blockchain technology, there is a lot more that Bitcoin itself can provide us, especially if Bitcoin-based innovation is given the right encouragement by authorities, through transparent and sensible, industry guided regulation. Financial technology is set to massively revolutionise global forex investments and business in the next few years and reluctance to keep up could be catastrophic for banks, whose dominance hasn’t been significantly challenged over the last century! The innovation in the sector has been difficult to keep up with and there has been significant venture capitalist interest in the Bitcoin and blockchain industry. Nobody can claim to know what the financial sector will look like in five years time, but cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology are likely to play a notable role. The banking giants will do well to keep on top of innovation and due to their deep pockets are unlikely to be replaced by Bitcoin banks any time soon, but consumers should continue to explore alternatives to ensure they’re utilising the best technology possible.

Welcome to this introduction to Geth. In this video, we will learn about Geth, which is the most popular client for the Ethereum blockchain app platform. We will also learn how to download, install and configure Geth. Finally, we will learn to create an Ethereum account using Geth. Let’s start with a quick overview of Geth. Geth is the C L I or command line interface for running a full Ethereum node. It is implemented in the Go programming language, but does not require its users to have proficiency in Go. It is free to download and install. Geth supports most major operating systems. In this video, we will focus on the Windows version of Geth. Now let’s look at what Geth can do. Geth can be overwhelming due to its long list of commands, but for now we will focus on three key use cases. First, Geth is used to mine, in other words, to create blocks that are published to the Ethereum blockchain. The miner receives Ethereum currency or “Ether” as a reward for doing so. Secondly, Geth is used to create and manage Ethereum accounts. Accounts can store Ether. Geth also lets you transfer Ether between accounts . This transfer of Ether between accounts is known as a transaction. Lastly , Geth is used to create contracts. Contracts can receive transfers just like regular accounts. However, they can also receive more complicated transactions that run code, and optionally, update the state of the contract. In this series of videos, we will build a simple contract using Geth. Note that we will not be mining any real Ether currency in this video. We’ll need to do a couple of things before we can dive into Geth. First, download and install Geth by going to the download page on the Ethereum site. Choose the Windows 64-bit installer for version 1.5.6, which should work on most modern Windows systems. Run the installer like you would any other installer. Next, we’ve created some helper scripts to make learning Geth easy. Head over to the github URL that you see here. Click the green "clone or download" button, and select "Download zip". Unzip the zip file that is downloaded. You should see a folder called “nugget1”. We will use that folder for our first lab with Geth. Ok, let’s dive into our lab. As a prerequisite, you’ll need to be comfortable using the Windows command line. Some exposure to programming languages is helpful but not required. Now, start the Windows command line. Head into the nugget1 folder. For the purposes of this exercise, we’ll create a private blockchain. Initialize this blockchain with the “genesis block” or first block. Use the helper script genesis to do so. Now that the blockchain has been initialized, let’s create our first account. We will use the Javascript console that comes with Geth. Start this console using the helper script "console". Once the console is up and running, type “personal.new Account” to create your first account. Provide a password that you can remember. You will be asked to enter it twice. Geth responds with a long hex string that represents your account address. Congratulations! You have created your first Ethereum account on your own private Ethereum network! So let’s recap what we learned today. We learned about the key features of Geth, how to download and install it, how to start a new blockchain, and how to create an account. Stay tuned for the next video in this series! *** Note: Comments were turned off. This channel is built on spare time, and the author was unable to answer Ethereum technical questions. Please refer to Ethereum forums to resolve technical issues.

Hawk: The Blockchain Model of Cryptography and Privacy-Preserving Smart Contracts Andrew Miller (University of Maryland) Presented at the 2016 IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy May 23–25, 2016 San Jose, CA http://www.ieee-security.org/TC/SP2016/ ABSTRACT Emerging smart contract systems over decentralized cryptocurrencies allow mutually distrustful parties to transact safely without trusted third parties. In the event of contractual breaches or aborts, the decentralized blockchain ensures that honest parties obtain commensurate compensation. Existing systems, however, lack transactional privacy. All transactions, including flow of money between pseudonyms and amount transacted, are exposed on the blockchain. We present Hawk, a decentralized smart contract system that does not store financial transactions in the clear on the blockchain, thus retaining transactional privacy from the public's view. A Hawk programmer can write a private smart contract in an intuitive manner without having to implement cryptography, and our compiler automatically generates an efficient cryptographic protocol where contractual parties interact with the blockchain, using cryptographic primitives such as zero-knowledge proofs. To formally define and reason about the security of our protocols, we are the first to formalize the blockchain model of cryptography. The formal modeling is of independent interest. We advocate the community to adopt such a formal model when designing applications atop decentralized blockchains.

It's called the blockchain. The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation powered by blockchain technology is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it's the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital currencies, the underlying framework has the potential to go far beyond these and record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certificates to insurance claims and even votes. Why should you care? Maybe you're a music lover who wants artists to make a living off their art. Or a consumer who wants to know where that hamburger meat really came from. Perhaps you're an immigrant who's sick of paying big fees to send money home to loved ones. Or an entrepreneur looking for a new platform to build a business. And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg. This technology is public, encrypted, and readily available for anyone to use. It's already seeing widespread adoption in a number of areas. For example, forty-two (and counting) of the world's biggest financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, Jpmorgan Chase, and Credit Suisse, have formed a consortium to investigate the blockchain for speedier and more secure transactions. As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored. Don Tapscott, the bestselling author of Wikinomics, and his son, blockchain expert Alex Tapscott, bring us a brilliantly researched, highly listenable, and utterly foundational book about the future of the modern economy.
