GreenPrint, an environmental technology company providing turn-key sustainability programs today announced a partnership with Plastic Bank, an organization globally recognized as one of the most important solutions to stop Ocean plastic. Both organizations share the belief that movement towards a circular economy is the future of business. GreenPrint uses patented technology to calculate CO2e emissions via payment transactions and invests proportionately in certified projects to develop and market sustainability programs for its clients. GreenPrint’s programs are currently running at over 4,500 retail locations in 14 countries across the globe.

Through the partnership with Plastic Bank, GreenPrint will now offer its clients and partners the opportunity to become plastic neutral by offsetting their plastic consumption with Social Plastic Collections Credits (SPCC). SPCC fund the recovery and recycling of an equivalent volume of ocean-bound plastic, effectively neutralizing the environmental impact of virgin plastic use. Other programs include Ecosystem Activation Partners that allow companies to fund the creation of new Social Plastic Ecosystem, using block chain technology, building branded branches in different places and engage local communities to begin converting waste into currency.

“It’s our responsibility as a business and as individuals to support our communities and environment. That’s why we are excited to partner with Plastic Bank, which will give our clients another opportunity to engage with their customers and communities through sustainability programs and make a notable and competitive difference,” said Pete Davis, founder and CEO of GreenPrint. “Plastic Bank’s mission is to stop Ocean Plastic by gathering a billion people together to monetize waste while improving lives aligns with GreenPrint and our client’s missions seamlessly.”

“As of May 31, 2019, Plastic Bank has cumulatively recovered over 10 million pounds of mismanaged waste plastic from the ocean-bound environment,” said David Katz, CEO of Plastic Bank.  “We are excited about our partnership with GreenPrint because we know it will only strengthen our ability to make an even greater impact through their network of clients and partners.”

GreenPrint’s programs offer a variety of customizable options to address the larger issue of climate change, but also find ways to scale community engagement, support, and impact.

YAO Network: An Universal Wing of the Future Decentralized Ecosystem
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Permissioned blockchain? Private blockchain? Public blockchain? Fret not for YAO Network accepts them all. YAO Network is a cloud service paradise for new blockchain projects looking for a community to nestle in and make their homes there. By integrating cloud computation with decentralized computation, the YAO Network is able to support computation eco-platforms of multiple blockchain networks, maximizing the utility of all participants while helping projects to achieve their technological targets and generate value.

The YAO Network was built for a vision: to benefit developers and to help enterprises achieve much more, freeing the successes of blockchain technologies for all to enjoy. This vision grounds the design of YAO Network’s architecture as the platform seeks to establish a comprehensive service and utility computation platform where Pareto optimality is achieved amongst developers, enterprises, and overall public utility.

Like many other blockchain platforms out there, technology remains a key factor in determining a platform’s functionality. The YAO Network certainly has a strong pillar of support in its robust technical infrastructure to achieve its goals.

1. YAO Network integrates multiple computation paradigms in utility computation.

The YAO Network platform effectively combines three computational paradigms, cloud computing, decentralized computing and encrypted computing, to meet the demands of different applications and create maximum computation utility.

Cloud computation has been gaining massive popularity as a computational model in many enterprises and the public. The advantages of cloud computation are numerous. It saves cost for enterprises, developers and the public while offering flexible workload deployments, which enhances the overall utility of both individuals and society.

Recognizing the advantages of cloud computation, the YAO Network platform makes cloud computing the only carrier of all service and computation units in the blockchain. Cloud computing is not only utilized for deployments and encrypted computation of centralized applications, but also widely applied in decentralized blockchain networks.

2. YAO Network standardizes decentralized and centralized computation units based on cloud computation.

Different computation units have been designed for various types of applications to promote the usage of blockchains in the public domain. YaoLet is the solution designed by the YAO Network for decentralized applications, while BuildPack is its equivalent for centralized applications designed based on PaaS. The entire architecture is rested on these two solutions alongside other services. As YaoLet and BuildPack are both multiplexed; developers and service providers can participate in the sharing of YaoLet and BuildPack and reap the rewards through corresponding YAO Network reward system.

3. YAO Network allows softwares to define blockchain through topological orchestration and virtualization.

Most computations are no longer an isolated and individual computation unit; they have complex interconnections that are unified by a topological structure. This combination of computational units is achieved through topological orchestration.

On one hand, new services and components can be combined and orchestrated by existing computation units. On the other hand, various infranets in blockchains can also be orchestrated to establish corresponding nodes and services. Most blockchain architectures like YAO Network take on a modularized approach where interledger general blockchain protocols are made viable through plugging and unplugging every component and service as well as modularizing operations. The blockchain network becomes the virtual superposition of peer-to-peer networks, making it possible to define new blockchain network models and service models through virtual and abstract orchestrations.

4. YAO Network supports multiple blockchain network architectures and paradigms including public blockchains, permissioned blockchains and private blockchains.

The blockchain network within YAO Network supports three types of blockchains, namely public blockchain, permissioned blockchain and private blockchain. They can be broken down into shared and exclusive nodes based on the extent of its isolation. Enterprises and developers can build on shared blockchains or create their own exclusive blockchains on the YAO Network platform. Another alternative would be to classify the blockchain network based on its testnet and mainnet, and their applications.

5. YAO Network maximizes utility of developers, enterprises and the general public.

YAO Network is a one-stop blockchain service platform for blockchain service consumers, developers and enterprises to share innovations both in public and private. One of the biggest hurdles blockchain has yet to overcome is its low adoption rate and thus the YAO Network has provided blockchain PaaS services for developers to utilise and a platform where they can release their blockchain products directly to blockchain service providers. This forms a healthy supply and demand ecosystem as iterations of blockchain products are incubated or eliminated based on practicality and impact. Those that are proven viable will unite and form a larger blockchain ecosystem and platform.

Developers even earn the chance to make some profits through the YAO Network. The network rewards developers when their creations are utilised by others. In addition, the YAO Network has three specific function modules in terms of product modality: blockchain marketplace, enterprise aggregation and solutions, and developer community. This forms a trinity that works together to serve both developers and enterprises. Driven by supply, YAO Network solves the scarcity of blockchain comprehensive services by connecting and bridging between developers and enterprises, in order to establish a healthy and organic ecosystem where all participants have maximum utility within the system.

6. YAO Network has high inclusivity in the system.

A well-designed architecture should have open interfaces. Every layer delivers its own functions, and is connected to each other through the same cross layer interface. The YAO Network system is designed based on important principles including openness, security, technology neutrality, verifiability in the future, interoperability, scalability, modularization, manageability and dependability, to achieve inclusivity in the system.

YAO Network embraces existing and future blockchain applications and is committed to establishing a comprehensive computation platform with multiple blockchains, multiple computational paradigms and integrated utilities.

Whiteblock leads networking workshop for Ethereum 2.0 – achieves basic client-to-client comms

A major milestone has been achieved in the development of Ethereum 2.0 as key team members collaborate on the first instance of protocol networking.

From June 25-29, the Whiteblock team was joined in Toronto by members of several Ethereum 2.0 client teams to work on client interoperability. Teams represented included Artemis, Prysmatic, Nimbus, Lodestar, and Yeeth. The broad goal for the week was to facilitate simple networking between two clients: a HELLO message sent between Artemis and Prysm according to the Hobbits wire spec – read up on it here. This is what nodes use to establish and confirm network relationships, and it’s a crucial component of any p2p protocol. Given the significance, the team was excited for the challenge.

The first roadblock was that the Prysm client had been set up to only parse the initial HELLO, whereas received GOSSIP messages would simply `return nil`. On the Artemis side, the client was sending HELLO followed by GOSSIP messages. Due to a hard-coded p2p port in Prysm, the Artemis message type had to be changed in order to accommodate Prysm.

After a few days of exploration and troubleshooting we were able to get both clients to exchange HELLO messages. This is an important marker on the path towards standing up long lived inter-client testnets.

Spec construction will be an ongoing and iterative process involving Prysmatic (Prysm), Chainsafe (Lodestar), Pegasys (Artemis), Status (Nimbus), Sigma Prime (Lighthouse) Yeeth, Whiteblock and other interested participants.

NEXT STEPS

The teams will continue to collaborate on integrating Gossipsub, working up the stack in terms of complexity. Next steps include continuing to build out the remainder of RPC query and response handling as well as GOSSIP message propagation in Prysm and Lodestar. The Whiteblock team will also be looking to support test networks by snapshotting state after the genesis kickoff, which will make test cycles more efficient.

There’s certainly a large amount of work ahead, but we’re excited to share our progress as the summer continues. Stay tuned for more updates.
