Will supply chain be the first big usecase of the blockchain after crypto?

IoT and blockchain are two promising technologies to change our future. This article talks about the main benefit and common misconceptions about using these two technologies together:

What do you think about it?

Hi guys,

I'm building a startup in Berlin applying blockchain tech to the IoT (Internet of Things). Here's a small demo that we did a couple of months ago, hopefully you will find it interesting:

(it's a Medium article written by my cofounder)

I'm looking for feedback, every comment is welcome!

How to install old Electrum-LTC versions ?
I need to install an old  Electrum-LTC version on my pc, as the new one ( is not opening.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / AION is the new Cardano? on: January 07, 2018, 07:57:43 PM
The project seems very interesting, the goal is connecting many blockchains and in particular ethereum to a new mother chain, AION.

What are your thoughts on it?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Cheap Altcoins Theory on: January 04, 2018, 04:06:43 PM
The very recent spikes in many currencies made me think, and I've come up with an hypothesis.

First, let's have a look at some of the currencies that spiked (I'm focusing on medium-high market cap coins):


Some are old, some are very recent. Some are payment systems, some smart contract platforms.
So, do these currencies have something in common?

They are (or were) sub-dollar coins!!!
My theory is that a lot of newcomers doesn't know about basic things as the fact that crypto can be bought in fractions, like 0.1 BTC. And on top of this they just look at how much a coin cost, without looking at the total supply.
I hope so much to be wrong, what do you think about it?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Electrum two factor authentication on: January 01, 2018, 12:33:05 PM
Hi guys, can you give me some feedback on the Electrum wallet 2fA? Is it working smoothly?

If I've understood, from the main seed you can still recover the wallet, even if you lose access to the 2fA. Is this extra layer of security worth?

Or maybe is better to buy an hardware wallet?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Alternatives to Coinbase? on: December 29, 2017, 11:32:35 PM
Hi guys, very briefly, Coinbase sucks. Slow, costly, always down.

Are there better alternative to buy/sell FIAT to crypto?
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Electrum Wallet Update on: December 11, 2017, 07:20:46 PM
Im running Electrum (for BTC) 2.7.12, while on the website the 3.0.2 is available.
Should I update?  
I'm just concerned about security issues, Electrum already works super smoothly right now.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / PIVX moon 16-10 on: October 12, 2017, 09:15:20 AM
Hi guys, what are you thought on the Zero protocol release on 16-10, is PIVX going to moon?

To get some background, from the official website:

 PIVX will be the first Proof of Stake coin to have the Zerocoin Protocol publically available for transactions within PIVX.  These perfectly anonymous transactions will also still maintain the speed and security already inherent to PIVX.

So in short:
PIVX is introducing ZeroCoin for the first time into a POS coin
PIVX is Automating TOR integration
PIVX already has obfuscation enabled
PIVX already has IPv4 and IPv6 (I2P is in development)
Encrypted chat (in-wallet) is underway for private communications.PIVX is the most anonymous POS coin available on the market as well as one of the fastest.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / PIVX and zPIV on: October 04, 2017, 10:09:53 AM
I guess this is an interesting development for PIVX:

Someone knows something more about this zPIV, how it works, why it's so secure? Apparently it's a kind of PIVX ---> zPIV conversion, but not sure how this is done concretely.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / SONM Price on exchange on: June 18, 2017, 08:50:35 AM
ICO is closed, all tokens are sold. Prediction on the price when SONM will hit the exchanges?
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The tech behind Iota on: June 13, 2017, 04:44:52 PM
Iota introduces an interesting new concept in the crypto scenario: the directed acyclic graph, or DAG. Basically it's an evolution of the usual blockchain, requiring no fees and without scaling issues.

Nevertheless, after having a quick look at the white paper I still don't understand how the nodes will keep working continuously. In the "tangle" there are no miners, the beloved greedy workers of the Bitcoin blockchain. Instead, here to perform a transaction, you should verify other transactions first. In the white paper ( they say:

what motivates the nodes to propagate transactions? In fact, in our setup the nodes do not have motivation
not to propagate. Every node calculates some statistics, one of which is how many
new transactions are received from a neighbor. If one particular node is “too lazy”, it
will be dropped by its neighbors. So, even if a node does not issue transactions (and
hence has no direct incentive to share new transactions that approve its own one), it
still has incentive to work hard.

I'm not convinced by this statement. In fact, let's say that  I'm a node and I don't want to be excluded by other nodes (and even on this I would like to understand what it means to be excluded. If you start again working hard can you be re-admitted? I could work only if I need to do transactions).
If my fellow nodes work x, I could work 0.99 x to not get excluded and minimize my work. But this reasoning can be applied to every node, since electricity has a cost, so everyone one will lower its effort, resulting in a system that perform poorly.

What do you think about this?
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Byteball (GBYTE) Price on: June 01, 2017, 11:28:36 AM
Predictions on the Byteball price in the next couple of weeks, months?
It seems to me that there is a lot of space to grow long term, plus there was no ICO and premine.

In particular do you think there will a price drop after next moon distribution?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Poloniex delisting, new entries? on: April 19, 2017, 07:31:19 AM
As you probably already know:

On May 2, 2017, the following will be delisted: BBR, BITS, C2, CURE, HZ, IOC, MYR, NOBL, NSR, QBK, QORA, QTL, RBY, SDC, UNITY, VOX, XMG

What new coins do you think will be added?
PIVX seems an obvious candidate, looking at volume and marketcap.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / When LTC Segwit will trigger? on: April 16, 2017, 01:48:06 PM
Ok, taking as working hypothesis that the 75% will be sustained until the end of the period (see for the current situation), can someone give a (precise) estimate of how much TIME is required for Segwit to be activated ?
How many days?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Biggest ICO scams on: April 07, 2017, 10:01:53 PM
Can you name the biggest ICO scams of the past?
Of course details of the scams are welcome!

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Poloniex crash Ripple peak on: April 05, 2017, 02:11:18 PM
I don't know if this has been already addressed, but a couple of days ago during the Ripple peak Poloniex servers went down for minutes, with many people not able to buy and sell. Considering how quick the price went down, many people lost money due to servers not responding.

I've seen many complaints in the trollbox about this, but at the end something has been done? Refunds or similar?
Something can even be done in this situations?
