Emercoin [EMC] 13th week of 2017
We hadn’t noticed at all how the first month of spring flew by. Outside the window—it was already April!
The merriest celebrations for the first day of April were held in Kolionovo. A big crowd gathered at the house of our friend and partner, Mikhail Shlyapnikov, to enjoy the spring and celebrate International Bird Day. People came to the village of Kolionovo from all corners of the country for a chance to chat with the famous farmer as well as build some bird feeders and just have a good time. Mikhail’s Facebook page is flashing with bright photos from that day: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001802183805&pnref=lhc.unseen
That day, Mikhail also presented his new project, “Kolionovo Ekosystem” (“The Ecosystem of Kolionovo”), and officially announced the beginning of fundraising for its development. The main purpose of the project is to raise crowdfunding resources for the development of real agriculture. ICO is based on the Waves platform with the use of Emercoin services. https://kolionovo.com
If you remember, we had written earlier that we are officially switching to merged mining. And it hasn’t taken long to see the results! Throughout March, the growth in the complexity of Emercoin’s mining has increased twenty times over. According to Emercoin’s team, the total network hash rate has exceeded 5 petahashes and continues to growing. How can one not be happy over such news!

Emercoin (EMC) bug fix Release v0.6.1
Emercoin [EMC] 14th week of 2017
Greetings Emercoin fans!
Are you in good spirits? You should be flying high, as the Bitcoin rate is recovering confidently. The conflict between the supporters of Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Unlimited has gradually subsided, and now the price of Bitcoin is rising, approaching the $1200 mark. We cannot help but rejoice, because we are now mining in two currencies at once. By the way, the Mergemining.com pool has started joint mining of Bitcoin and Emercoin. http://www.blockchainengine.org/mergemining-com-emercoin/ More and more people are becoming supporters of Merged Mining, which means everything has not been in vain!
On April 19, Moscow will be hosting a large exhibition of equipment and software for the cryptocurrency industry, and the Emercoin team will be taking an active part in it. We promise to update you with a detailed report!

A CoinTelegraph article, a new wallet version, and striking figures.
Good day Blockchain Connoisseurs!
As soon as our friend and partner Mikhail Shlyapnikov launched ICO, one of the most respected magazines in the world, CoinTelegraph, wrote about it right away, and not without mentioning Emercoin. It turned out to be a very good article. Here’s the link for those who have not yet had time to read it: https://cointelegraph.com/news/blockchain-is-like-badass-tractor-how-russian-farmer-launched-ico
As always, we have a lot going on. Last week, we released a new Emercoin Web wallet version 2.1, which is significantly improved and optimized. We have added an option to transfer net value scores (NVS) to a third-party EMC address, as well as a reminder about expiring NVS. It’s much more convenient to create and edit blockchain name values in the new version. To learn more about the advantages of EmcWeb 2.1, read our press release: http://www.blockchainengine.org/emcweb-2-1/
Last week, a study by Allied Market Research was published that showed that the global blockchain market will grow to $ 5.4 billion by 2023. The market volume includes the income of all companies from this sector: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/blockchain-distributed-ledger-market
Such figures are a good motivator, so we’ll go back to work. And to raise our spirits, here’s a photo of our Masha.
Emercoin [EMC] Release v0.6.2
The developers of the digital cryptocurrency Emercoin have announced that in the version released on April 26th, an embedded cryptocurrency exchanger has been added and the final remnants of centralization have ceased operation. These were the centralized alerts and compulsory dynamic check-points, passed on to Emercoin as an inheritance from Peercoin. The code was used during the initial development of the Emercoin blockchain.
In Version 6.2 Emercoin users have the opportunity to choose: to keep alerts turned on; to create a public key independently for a third party, who they trust; or to switch off alerts as a matter of principle.
In the same way it’s now possible to manage settings for the dynamic check-points. This subsystem, designed to protect the network from some attacks specific to PoS, was also inherited by Emercoin from Peercoin. Now they continue to fulfill the same function, however as the PoW difficulty of the Emercoin network has reached half that of the difficulty of the Bitcoin network, their role is significantly reduced. Therefore users can now decline “the developers’ inescapable check-points”, and use a check-point source that they personally trust, or switch them off altogether.
We have crossed the Rubicon, getting rid of the last instruments which affect the health of the Emercoin network. Whether this was the right step or a mistake — only time will tell. We are guided by the ideals and principles which Satoshi impressed on us and which we share. We are in favor of decentralization.
— Evgenii Shumilov, founder and CEO of Emercoin
Also in Emercoin 6.2, there is now an exchanger for basic cryptocurrencies embedded in the wallet. Now you can make transfers directly from your wallet Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Monero, Namecoin, Peercoin, and Blackcoin addresses. The exchange is carried out through the online-exchanger CoinReform. If there turns out to be a high demand for this option, then the developers will expand both the number of currencies available for exchange, and the list of exchangers.

The co-founder of F2pool, Wang Chun, was the first to announce this terrific news on his Twitter account: https://twitter.com/f2pool_wangchun.
On May 12, a Business and Development blockchain meet-up was held in Moscow where various issues were discussed relating to both blockchain technology and the decentralized economy, as well as the testing and streamlining of smart contracts. A great deal of consideration was given to the practical aspects of the Emercoin blockchain platform. The Emer Team was represented by CMO Stanislav Polozov and CTO Oleg Khovaiko, who was live streamed from Washington D. C.
HashCoins and Emercoin launched passwordless authorization system Authorizer.io
Authorizer.io was officially launched on May 18. This is an open non-commercial project intended to increase the security of user accounts, mitigate the risks of password interception and demonstrate the advantages of open blockchain technologies.
Authorizer.io was created through the efforts of three teams: HashCoins, Aspanta and Emercoin.
The main goal of the project is to draw the attention of users to password-free authorization technologies and to the advantages of blockchain certificates for daily use.
Authorizer.io enables website owners to integrate the authorization system quickly and easily through Emerсoin SSL certificates.
Authorizer.io is based on the oauth2 open authorization protocol and Emercoin blockchain technology. Blockchain is used to store the encrypted information on user EmerSSL certificates and virtual cards.
The advantages of Authorizer.io:
1. Security. No password, and thus no risk of it being captured.
2. Comfort. It is not necessary to fill out any forms, as authorization is made with one click.
3. Anonymity. Only you own your data, which means that it is impossible to steal or falsify it.
4. Freedom. The service is absolutely free for website users and owners.
5. Usability. Daily use of certificates significantly saves you time.
6. Flexibility. You have the possibility to use SSL certificates in any browser and on any device, including on smartphones and tablets.
7. The human factor. Authorizer is intended only for people. Bots cannot use it, and spam is completely excluded.
8. Innovation. There is no place for passwords in the 21st century.
Anyone who wants to may create and get free a certificate: https://getssl.authorizer.io/en
