VeriBlock Launches Mainnet, Achieving Milestone in Decentralized Blockchain Security

Today, VeriBlock Inc., through its subsidiary Xenios SEZC, announced the upcoming mainnet launch of the VeriBlock blockchain. On March 4, 2019, VeriBlock’s year-long testnet phase ended, and on March 25, 2019, VeriBlock’s mainnet will officially go live.

VeriBlock Helps Secure Blockchain Networks Against 51% Attacks So They Can Thrive

During the last year, 51% attacks — attempts to rewrite a blockchain’s transaction history — progressed from theory into reality. These attacks have accounted for more than $20,000,000 in coin theft from exchanges, including holdings in Bitcoin Gold, ZenCash, Ravencoin, FLO, and most recently Ethereum Classic.

VeriBlock’s technology delivers Bitcoin-level security to both new and established blockchain and cryptocurrency projects that may otherwise be vulnerable. This enables development teams to focus on innovative features and functionality, rather than worrying about attacks.

The marketplace has validated this approach, with over 6,000,000 security transactions on Bitcoin to date.

In addition to allowing blockchain networks to inherit Bitcoin’s decade-plus of accumulated security, VeriBlock-secured blockchains continually provide Early Attack Detection (EAD) security statistics. EAD enables exchanges, wallet providers, and merchants to determine the security of particular transactions and networks. Once a transaction reaches Bitcoin-finality — the moment the snapshot of a network is written to a Bitcoin block — the exchange or merchant can accept the transaction with the assurance that it is just as secure as a Bitcoin transaction.

Industry Leaders Announce Alignment with VeriBlock’s Mission

On his company’s blog, Bloq Co-founder and Chairman Matthew Roszak wrote: “Bloq is proud to have been part of the journey with VeriBlock over the past two years — and especially with a technology that helps any blockchain project thrive and benefit from the security that Bitcoin provides. As the multi-chain, multi-network, multi-token world emerges, we are confident that VeriBlock will continue to play a vital role as a security root for this new frontier.”

“At Bittrex, we’ve always operated with the highest possible security standards to protect our users and our long-term relationship with VeriBlock has been a part of that commitment,” said Bill Shihara, Co-Founder and CEO of Bittrex. “Blockchains that adopt VeriBlock’s technology will be able to improve their users’ trading experiences on Bittrex, thanks to the faster confirmation times and rollback protection. We need to continue to create innovative solutions like VeriBlock to move the blockchain industry forward and increase adoption.”

“We’ve worked with the VeriBlock team since 2017 because we believe in the potential of VeriBlock’s technology to help the entire blockchain ecosystem grow by delivering Bitcoin-level security to any other chain,” said Anthony Di Iorio, Founder and CEO of Decentral. “I believe VeriBlock will be a good addition to the growing range of products and services we offer our Jaxx Liberty customers.”

Supply Chain Management Association Becomes Supply Chain Canada

At its AGM yesterday, the Supply Chain Management Association™ announced its name change to Supply Chain Canada™. The association also launched a new website as part of an overall rebranding initiative.

“The new name and look are part of a transformation that we have undertaken as the association enters its second century,” said Christian Buhagiar, President & CEO of Supply Chain Canada. “Today’s supply chains are dynamic and fast-paced. The association for Canada’s supply chain professionals must reflect that.”

Through the rebranding process, the association has also acquired a meaningful new logo and tagline, “Professionals advancing the future.”

The logo’s maple leaf design not only conveys our nationality; it also represents the connectedness of the supply chain, illustrating the networks and collaboration that are so essential to supply chain success, and the interconnectedness of the association’s federation, institutes and members. Its connected dots can be seen, as well, as the complex route of a global supply chain.

“Professionals advancing the future” succinctly communicates both the professional status of supply chain practitioners and their forward-looking perspective. It is intended to:

  1. Elevate the perception of supply chain practitioners as professionals, acknowledging the value they bring to their organizations and to the Canadian economy.
  2. Encompass the several ways that the association and its members “advance” – in their personal careers and knowledge, and for the profession, the country and the economy.
  3. Express the future focus of the association – with its emphasis on the development of skills and policies – and of the supply chain itself, now so focused on AI, blockchain, robotics, automation and so on.

The new website, now at www.supplychaincanada.com, is enhanced with a modern look and new functionality that enables location-based content for users across Canada.

These changes are not simply style enhancements. They are part of a larger plan to strengthen the association. Supply Chain Canada consolidates the organization’s brand across the country under a single name in every province and territory, removing any possible confusion from its federation structure. “The unity that this will ensure will help us improve recognition in the sector, and thereby provide stronger leadership to the Canadian supply chain community,” said Buhagiar.

The association’s transformation began in 2018 with a new vision and mission, as well as an ambitious three-year strategic plan. The new name and rebranding announced yesterday are part of a larger evolution that will continue over the next two years with the introduction of new and revised educational offerings, new initiatives to engage with industry, more value-added membership benefits and more.

Export Portal to Address Best Practices in Sustainable Trade Facilitation at the Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Export Portal CEO Ally Spinu will be adding her take on the alignment of trade facilitation and sustainable development goals at a session at the 9th Asia-Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF) in New Delhi.

“The Asia-Pacific region is a wealth of unexplored opportunities which lay deep in the communities of local businessmen and women that just need support in bringing their amazing products to the world to see and buy,” Ms. Spinu said. “I am looking forward to this event and being a part of the change that will help local businesses from this part of the world sell their products globally. I deeply believe that shifting attention to developing SMEs is the major change international trade and local economies have been waiting for.”

This year’s APTFF will focus on how digital and sustainable trade facilitation measures and practices can bring prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. The forum will investigate opportunities from trade digitalization for sustainable progress of the area and challenges ahead in materializing such opportunities. APTFF will feature panel discussions as well as interactive and informative sessions. These sessions will allow participants to share experiences and perspectives on different aspects of trade facilitation, including trade finance, cross-border eCommerce and paperless trade, transit, innovative application of emerging technologies, and more. APTFF will bring relevant regional initiatives and implementation cases to each session, making it a unique opportunity to share knowledge and practical lessons. The forum will also include many side-events providing a more in-depth exploration of the pertinent trade facilitation issues.

“Agricultural products are the fastest category and industry growing within Export Portal, and I can say that is just natural that SMEs around the world are actively looking for new ways for selling their products around the world,” Ms. Spinu said. “The role of innovative technologies such as Export Portal is crucial in helping these SMEs integrate within the world supply chain of food with ease and at optimal costs. I want to explain the current issues existing within SMEs’ integration in international trade due to the high cost involved and how technology slowly but surely changes this.”

Export Portal’s trade goals align directly with the purpose of this session, as its international B2B trade platform is an affordable and all-encompassing solution for SMEs all over the world. The features that are available and being developed on Export Portal, such as the panel of experts (EP+), the educational hub (EPU), and data flow insights (EPI), provide SMEs with the resources they need to trade effectively on an international scale safely, securely, and efficiently.

The Digital and Sustainable Trade Facilitation for Regional Prosperity session is co-organized by ADB, ESCAP, Ministry of Commerce, India and Confederation of Indian Industry and will be held on Wednesday, September 18, from 9:00 to 10:45 AM.
