Cryptospace 2017 in Moscow! Vinchain Team Successful Results
Now as you may already know, Cryptospace conference is one of the largest platforms that support blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. Every year, they host approximately 30,000 participants from 30 countries. This year’s event took place on 8th December and we were part of the participants. Last Friday, we had such a great time at the conference in Moscow.
It all started early in the morning and lasted till late in the evening. We met so many experienced people who were interested in our idea. What’s more, investors are really interested to be a part of our project after the presentation. We showed them how to take part in the presale by signing up in our website. During the whole conference, our stand was never empty. We had so many people come to talk to us throughout the day. We did not hesitate to answer the questions while telling them about our project and what we are going to do. We were extremely happy about such a great feedback that we had during this day. So many people told us that they are interested in what we are doing and that they found our idea highly perspective. We also exchanged contacts and are looking forward to communicate with our future partners and investors.
Ripple - How XRP Stacks Up Against Other Digital Assets
Everyone is talking about the digital asset space. Wild price fluctuations, new XRP capital funds
and Bitcoin (BTC) forks have made it virtually impossible for consumers
or the financial industry to ignore the popularity and proliferation of
In fact, the digital asset landscape has grown so much that there are more than 1,300 types of assets on the market with a collective market cap of $450 billion as of this posting.
We examined the top digital assets for payments while comparing their speed, cost and scalability. Here’s what we found.
Which digital asset is the best for payments?
is the only digital asset with a clear institutional use case designed
to solve a multi-trillion dollar problem – the global payment and
liquidity challenges that banks, payment providers and corporates face.
In order to effectively solve this problem, speed, cost and scalability
are of extreme importance. When you line up the top digital assets for
these attributes, it’s clear that XRP is the winner.
XRP is part of a bigger vision
XRP is a key enabler of the Internet of Value
— Ripple’s vision for making money move at the speed of digital
information. XRP’s speed, transparency, and scalability help financial
institutions move money like information moves today — in real time.
v0.3.0 includes new logic for the freeze tokens functionality.
v0.3.0 is a major release and consensus critical in terms of the Omni
Layer protocol rules. An upgrade is mandatory, and highly recommended.
Prior releases will not be compatible with new behaviour in this
Please report bugs using the issue tracker on GitHub:
If you are running Bitcoin Core or an older version of Omni Core,
shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down, then copy the new
version of omnicored, omnicore-cli and omnicore-qt. On Microsoft Windows the setup routine can be used to automate these steps.
During the first startup of this new release historical Omni
transactions are reprocessed and Omni Core will not be usable for
approximately 15 minutes up to two hours. The progress of the initial
scan is reported on the console, the GUI and written to the debug.log. The scan may be interrupted, but can not be resumed, and then needs to start from the beginning.
Downgrading to an Omni Core version prior 0.3.0 is generally not
supported as older versions will not provide accurate information due to
the changes in consensus rules.
Compatibility with Bitcoin Core
Omni Core is based on Bitcoin Core 0.13.2 and can be used as
replacement for Bitcoin Core. Switching between Omni Core and Bitcoin
Core is fully supported at any time.
Downgrading to a Bitcoin Core version prior 0.12 may not be supported due to the obfuscation of the blockchain database.
Downgrading to a Bitcoin Core version prior 0.10 is not supported due to the new headers-first synchronization.
Consensus affecting changes
Freezing tokens for managed properties
Omni Core 0.3.0 contains a feature that, if an issuer chooses to
enable, permits an issuer of a centrally managed token to freeze tokens
residing at any address for that specific property. This feature is
restricted to the managed token type (where the issuer retains control
over the supply of tokens) and may not be used for any other token type
(for example tokens issued via crowdsale or via fixed amount cannot be
Further, feature ID 14 adds a waiting period for a managed issuer to
enable the freezing feature. Once activated a waiting period (currently
4096 blocks) is enforced between the 'enable freezing' transaction and
the 'freeze tokens' transaction.
See also JSON-RPC API documentation.
Various bug fixes and improvements
Various smaller improvements were added Omni Core 0.2.0, such as:
Fixing log spam generated by unconfirmed transactionsIncluding the reason for a transaction being invalidated in the RPC responseAdds an RPC to hash all balances in the state
The following list includes relevant pull requests merged into this release:
- #480 Add checkpoint for block 470000

- #482 Remove git created macros to make builds deterministic
- #483 Update alert keys
- #493 Add seed blocks for block 470,000 to 490,000

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release, and especially
the Bitcoin Core developers for providing the foundation for Omni Core!
This was a great read over my lunch break. I think you did a great job in the comparison. I really am bullish on both but I think NEO has a potential catalyst over Ethereum being the Digital Identity and regulation compliance. The future is bright for both regardless. Cheers
FOMO BTC market. BTC going in the mainstream
media. Greed increasing worldwide and prices going crazy. Totally
unpredictable short term at this moment. My recommendation? Hold those
BTC, buy those shitcoins in the lows, wait for the peak and don’t be
afraid to sell when it’s time. We’re entering in the advanced phase of
the bubble and this cannot be sustained for much more time.
Let’s pray for a slow down of Bitcoin volatility
in the coming times to make it possible for the altcoins to make a run
up, but anyways, 2018 looks like the year to GTFO of the sector (to buy
later when things calm down and coins/tokens/assets have more realistic
BOScoin Newsletter - Token Distribution Status, Exchange Community Vote, & More
Happy holiday season, fellow BOScoiners!
Token Distribution Status
are continuing to distribute tokens twice a week. We’ve distributed to
55% of all users, but many of the remaining users are very small bounty
hunters. We have 27% of the funds remaining to be sent, because they
have not been requested. We are processing requests as we get them.
Please, if you haven’t already, claim your tokens!
Monthly Transaction Fee Allocation
monthly transaction fee was distributed last Wednesday on the 6th. The
3,000 wallets with the greatest BOScoin balance, who also have more than
10,000 BOS received their allocation of transaction fees. Please check
your wallet at https://wallet.boscoin.io
to see how much you received. If you did not receive any transaction
fees, then you did not meet the requirements for this allocation. As
announced earlier, we plan to distribute transaction fees every first
Wednesday of the month unless it is a bank holiday, so the next
distribution will be on the 3rd of January.

BOS Platform Foundation will be conducting a financial and technical
audit regarding the development of the project, just to keep everything
in check. The audit will be conducted by one of the Global Top 4
Accounting firms and we are currently in talks with a couple of them to
carry out the audit. We will choose one firm by this week and hope to
