Wow, seriously.... to think that people in the public sector in 1st world countries are already looking at ways to use Blockchain technology to their advantage, is a giant accomplishment for Crypto currencies and Blockchain technologies. I live in a country with a mix of 1st world and even 3rd world cities and most of them have not even heard about Bitcoin and the Blockchain yet.  Roll Eyes

A lot of the governments are still struggling to "define" and regulate Crypto currencies and then you get countries like Japan and Finland that are at the tip of the spear with new technologies like this. This is truly nice to see.  Wink
That's exactly why we need conferences such as BLOCKWALKS. It's nice to see that some countries are using blockchain but in order to have the impact it should have, more people and governments should know and understand this technology. Blockchain tech is useful and it should reach all countries, not just a few. Luckily, events such as BLOCKWALKS and many others are bringing people from different industries and sectors together and educating them on this topic.

BLOCKWALKS 2019: Connecting the Worlds of Blockchain and Smart Technology with the Public Sector



On October 10, the halls of the Bratislava Castle will resonate with the ideas, thoughts, and discussions from some of the brightest minds in the worlds of blockchain and smart tech. Overlooking the old town of Bratislava, the magical atmosphere of the castle will host the second annual BLOCKWALKS conference, focusing on Blockchain and Smart Solutions for the Public, the first conference of its kind.


Top-level government officials and industry leaders from innovative sectors including smart technology, blockchain, AI and Internet of Things will gather to discuss and understand the role that blockchain technology will play in the public sector in the coming years.



Nick Szabo speaking at BLOCKWALKS 2018

Last year, BLOCKWALKS inaugural event had more than 18 speakers from 16 different countries and hosted over 300 attendees, as well as 30 government representatives from 10 European countries.

According to Andrea Stoklasová, President of the Slovak civil association PUBLICUM organizing BLOCKWALKS, “Like last year’s conference, the main focus of BLOCKWALKS 2019 is on the implementation of blockchain in the public sector and its potential in building smart cities. The aim of smart cities is to incorporate information, communication, and technology in order to improve the quality and performance of infrastructure, urban services, resource management, and social wellness in general. We want to increase the pace of adoption, and this conference is the place to foster these ideas.”

Andrea Stoklasová continued, “Governments are already looking at improving their city infrastructures and social welfare through smart technology, but to support the implementation of new technological innovations, a reliable and secure way of storing and distributing information is needed. Blockchain technology might just be the perfect answer.”

The program of this year’s BLOCKWALKS conference consists of three blocks: The Plenary Block, the Breakout Blocks, and Panel Discussions.
The Plenary Block will host a succession of keynote speeches held by top blockchain and smart city experts, and government officials. The Breakout Block is in the form of technological sessions, discussing blockchain technology’s use cases, smart technology, and IoT. The Panel Discussion focuses on open debates about future technologies between industry leaders.

There are many examples on how blockchain technology and other smart solutions will improve citizens' everyday life. Georgia has implemented blockchain technology into its landownership authentication system, making the process of landownership 400 times faster than the traditional method. Other examples include Denmark that has implemented blockchain in its voting system, making it incorruptible or Estonia that has implemented the blockchain technology in the healthcare system. Other aspects related to public sector and society in general will inevitably be affected and improved by the implementation of blockchain, such as energy and waste management, transportation, citizens ID management, just to name a few. In this respect, smart city is synonymous with progress and improved quality of life. I attended last year's edition of Blockwalks, the European Conference focusing on blockchain and other smart solutions for the public sector and it was really interesting, of the keynote speakers was Nick Szabo, the developer of smart contracts. Its second edition will be held at Bratislava Castle, in October. If you are interested you can check their website!
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / BitWings ICO Reveals the First Ultra-Secure Mining Smartphone on: April 16, 2019, 07:42:52 AM
Wings Mobile, the Spanish virtual mobile operator, has revealed the development of the world’s first ultra-secure, crypto-mining smartphone - “The Simply Sexy” Wings WX™ - which will have its official unveiling at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from the 25 to 28 February 2019. This ultra-secure smartphone can generate up to 2 ETH a month without any power consumption.

Wings received the ALCI AWARD for ‘Best Technological Design’ for their state-of-the-art smartphones, supporting their reputation as an innovative software developer and high-end smartphone and laptop producer.

During the Wings ICO, which starts in May 2019, a limited edition of 40,000 Wings WX™ units with engraved production numbers will be made available for 6000 BWN (BitWings tokens).  BWN can always be used in Wings’ native ecosystem, granting a 10% discount off the price within the entire range of products and services, both online and in physical stores.

Wings Mobile, founded in 2007, has seen over a decade of success within the wholesale B2B telecommunications market. They are now expanding into the B2C marketplace, with their current retail business strategy based on offering their mobile network and services, Wings smartphones and Wings Books laptops, to the end consumer through their distribution system based on an ingenious social media marketing strategy and exclusive affiliate program.

According to the President of Wings, Daniele Bianchini, “There are already numerous original software applications incorporated into our hardware. With ©Wings Suite™ you can transfer all your Wings phone functions to your laptop, including GSM calls, and when using ©Wings Guardian™ you will know in real time if any applications or hackers are using your camera. Furthermore, with ©Wings Secure Call™ you can have VoIP calls that not even Wings Mobile can intercept. And finally, with ©Wings World Roaming Free™ you can have free VoIP calls in 60 countries around the world.”

Bianchini continued, “We know that the most anticipated and welcomed solution in the high-tech community is The Safe Core OS™ operating system based on Android, with an ultra-secure encryption core for products, including the Wings WX™ smartphone and the Wings X Book™ laptop, which is designed to meet the needs of the blockchain world.

Domenico Cantone, Marketing Director for Wings, delved further, explaining, “The Wings blockchain phone is the first neural hybrid phone with a triple factor authentication and cold storage cryptographic wallet built into the hardware. It is a secure operating system within an open operating system, giving the user the freedom to use any app they please while also ensuring their peace of mind that nothing can threaten their most sensitive personal and financial information.”

One of the many unique security features provided by The Safe Core OS™ solution, which can be read about in more detail from their White Paper, is Wings Neural Face ID™. This technology allows the owner of the Wings WX™ smartphone to create secondary biometric profiles that will access different content with regards to the menu and the application. For example, if a user accesses their phone next to another person, the neural identification device scanning the face of the users immediately recognizes the presence of an unidentified person, and based on previously set configurations, shows an alternate menu. Everything you have decided to keep private will remain private.

The BitWings ICO will strengthen the financial base of Wings Mobile while addressing the increased demand for unique blockchain-based, security solutions for smartphones, plus underpin an accelerated expansion of 36 identified territories, or Business Units, throughout the world.

The Public Sale is divided into four different phases, each with decreasing bonus percentages given to token price. The last 60 Million tokens will be sold with 0% bonus, which is equal to the emission value of $0.20 USD. After the ICO crowdfunding campaign, the tokens can only be purchased in the secondary market, either peer to peer, or through exchange platforms at market value.

Cantone clarified, “BitWings strength as a cryptocurrency comes from holding a true value of $ 0.20 USD at issue, which acts as protection against market fluctuations. In addition, BWN tokens are a medium of exchange within the Wings Mobile ecosystem to purchase products, plus token holders get a 10% discount throughout the entire range of Wings Mobile products and services. Of course, the phone itself is able to generate up to 2 ETH in a month, which is a major bonus.”

The first 40,000 limited edition Wings WX™ smartphones are available only for ICO participants. The ICO Public Sale starts on May 1, 2019, and ends when all 189 Million BWN are sold at the end of June, whichever comes first.

Bianchini concluded, “No matter if you are a crypto miner, a privacy advocate, a high-tech enthusiast, or business-minded person, BitWings has a solution for everyone. Every Wings Mobile offer is on www.bitwings.org, and we invite everyone to become the proud owner of the first ultra-secure smartphone that will generate income.”

Hm, will it be able worldwide?
Yes, it is a worldwide project. The company has projected to open up several business units all over the world.

Wow, sounds like an amazing project. A phone that mines Ethereum and effectively (2 ETH a month is no joke)... haven't heard that before. Definitely have to check it out. I have been looking for a new phone and seems like I have found a great candidate.

Absolutely. The phone is perfect for people in the cryptocurrency space with all of its security features. And the fact that it mines Ethereum is also exceptional. It is certainly a project worth waiting for.

I don't know about this but 0.20$ seem too much to begin.

The $0.20 issuance price is guaranteed by the company. You can always use your tokens in the WingsPay ecosystem with the issuance value of 0.20 USD. Even if the price on the market is lower than that, your tokens will still be accepted at physical and online Wings Mobile stores at $0.20.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN][ICO][BWN] BITWINGS - HOME OF THE FIRST ULTRA-SECURE MINING SMART PHONE on: March 11, 2019, 03:11:08 PM


BitWings token, a native currency of Wings Mobile ecosystem, has 100% guaranteed issuing value and is the only means to pre-order the first (40,000) ultra-secure blockchain smartphones in the world able to generate up to 2 ETH a month without any power consumption, powered with neural technology.

Wings Mobile is a Spanish virtual mobile operator founded in 2007, focused on the development of innovative software, smartphones and laptops. After less than a year into their new business strategy, implemented in 2017, the company received the ALCI AWARD for ‘Best Technological Design’ for their state-of-the-art smartphones that were created with a focus on innovation, security, and price.

The mobile communication market is evolving rapidly. Beyond calls and data, phones have become the main operational channel for financial
activities and other exchanges of sensitive information.


We believe that the future is built on incorporating security protocols and tools into our products that will also facilitate seamless trades on crypto exchanges and enable crypto payments for goods and services.

The mission of Wings Mobile is to create devices that increase the security and privacy standards of electronic devices without sacrificing the freedom to use all available applications. We offer software solutions dedicated to the protection of users’ privacy and confidential data. Wings Mobile are integrating neural technology within its new X series devices, employing security features unique to our proprietary technology, starting with our new Wings Minephone WX.





WINGS WX MINEPHONE

The blockchain phone is the first NEURAL hybrid phone (VoIP / GSM / NeuralChip); unique in the world for its highest level of security, both in terms of hardware and software.




PROOF OF DATA


The PoD validation protocol consists of the Doppler Data Rate algorithm (DDR) and a Smart Contract. Through the DDR and an active contract, the MinePhone WX receives Ethereum from the Wings Mine Pool every day, depending on the connection time and the number of data exchanged with it.

Through our Smart Contract, we are able to capture computing power from rented pools. This is the prime secret of our Proof of Data. Imagine the Proof of Data as a "sub-protocol" that allows Wings WX to connect with the pools, which then produce the Ethereum using Proof of Work protocols.



All the Smartphones that will have an internal DDR software installed and an active Smart Contract, will essentially receive a daily reward based on the type of contract.



THE BITWINGS [BWN] TOKEN


The BITWINGS (BWN) is the token of WINGS MOBILE and is implemented in an ERC-20 smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain. BWN is a cryptocurrency that, unlike many other coins, has a value based on its “true currency” nature.

    • Its strength is based on the economy of the successfully operating company focusing on innovation and not based on the price of Bitcoin, like most other cryptocurrencies.
    • It is a medium of exchange that can be used in the Wings Mobile ecosystem to purchase products and services both in the online channel and in physical stores. Using it will grant a 10% discount in the entire range of the WINGS MOBILE products and services.
    • It is a value deposit, backed by the guarantee of having its issuance value of $ 0.20, which is a protection against market fluctuations once the coin is available on exchanges and other types of buying and selling platforms.

    In both cases, whether you are hodling or trading, you must keep security in mind, especially when hodling. You should never keep your funds in an exchange for longer than you need. Exchanges pose a security risk, they can get hacked or the founder can be the only one holding the private keys to the funds being kept on the exchange and then suddenly die. You should keep your funds offline and be in control of your private keys. You could keep your funds on a hardware wallet, on an offline computer that is dedicated to holding your crypto, or you can use a secure smartphone that is meant for cryptocurrencies, for example the Wings WX phone by BitWings.
    11  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How to Trade cryptocurrencies comfortably with profit on: March 08, 2019, 09:05:03 AM
    I recently came across a smartphone created by BitWings which supposedly could mine up to 2 ETH per month. Based on the price of their phone and the cost of activation, the phone will start generating profit after 6 months and it's smooth sailing from there on. The phone is not out yet but they did showcase it at the Mobile World Conference last week.
    12  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Newbie in crypto trading on: March 08, 2019, 08:48:03 AM
    Before you start buying or trading anything you should learn the basics first. Make sure you have the proper knowledge about cryptocurrencies and about the security that is needed for you not to lose your money. There's no point in becoming an expert trader and then losing your crypto because of inadequate security measures. For starters, all of the funds that you are not trading with, I suggest you take them to an external wallet and not keep them on exchanges. You probably have heard about Quadriga. All of the money people kept on that exchange is now lost. Don't make the same mistake. You can also invest in proper devices for your crypto devices, such as a cold storage hardware wallet, maybe a specialized offline computer to keep your funds, or even a smartphone that is specially created for cryptocurrencies, for example, the Wings WX phone by BitWings. Whatever you decide to do, remember that knowledge is key in starting with anything new.
    13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: 2 Reasons Noobs Fail At Trading on: March 05, 2019, 10:43:02 AM
    A lot of noobs don't consider security as well. They keep their funds on exchanges even when they are going for the long run. I wouldn't trust exchanges to keep all of my crypto earnings, I have seen too many articles about people losing their funds because of exchanges getting hacked or breached. Recently I came across BitWings and their smartphones. They have designed their phones specially for crypto people with security features like biometric scanning, neural technology and data encryption, and it also should be able to mine up to 2 ETH per month. Instead of keeping my funds on exchanges, I would suggest a secure device, like a separate PC that's not connected to the internet, cold storage wallet or the phones by Bitwings. Just my 0.02
    14  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Do you know how hackers are collecting our data by smartphone & real life? on: February 25, 2019, 09:13:54 AM
    A lot of people forget to protect their phones on the internet. While they secure their computers and behave reasonably, they often forget all about that with their phones. One of my buddies recently lost all the crypto he held on his phone because his phone was not the most secure device out there (fortunately he didn't hold much crypto on his phone). Since that day I have been looking for a phone that has adequate security features. I recently came across https://bitwings.org and their Wings WX phone. These phones integrate neural technology and are specially created for crypto people. It has incredible security features, making it impossible for anyone get into your phone, not even BitWings itself. It also connects with mining pools to generate up to 2 ETH per month. So I definitely suggest everyone to check it out.

    Yeah, I found that project as well. It looks quite promising, I have waited for a secure phone for years now. It seems that my wait might be over soon Smiley The feature where the phone changes your menus when someone is spying on you over your shoulder seems like something out of a sci-fi movie. Can't wait to check that out
    15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: What are the most promising cryptocurrencies? on: February 25, 2019, 09:04:27 AM
    Right now, it has to be BWN. It's the token of Bitwings. They are creating smartphones specially built for crypto. Their phones have biometric scanning, neural tech, cryptography and so on to create security for their phone. It should also be able to mine 2 ETH per month. They still in the private sale phase, so it's a great time to get into the project.
    16  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Ready to Jump in Crypto. Again! (Looking for Advise) on: February 25, 2019, 08:58:31 AM
    You probably have heard that but it is always great to refresh your knowledge - secure your funds. You probably have seen/heard all of the news about exchanges getting hacked. Exchanges are not secure. If you are going for the long term strategy, you should use a wallet or a secure device to keep your crypto. There are plenty of hardware wallets but for the sake of convenience, I suggest you check out BitWings and their Wings WX smartphone. Their phones are specially created for crypto people. They are using neural technology, biometric scanning, and cryptography to secure the phone. It should also mine 2 ETH per month, so that's awesome.

    Is this phone already out or when is it coming out?? Seems interesting, would like to look deeper into the specs.

    Their project is in private sale right now, I think their ICO is in May. But they should reveal their phone at the World Mobile Conference this week.

    Get your funds off an exchange, unless you are actively trading them. But as you are currently holding them on Localbitcoins I assume you are just holding your funds. In that case, there's no point in holding your funds on any exchanges, even if they haven't been hacked. Better safe than sorry. You can use secure hardware wallets (buy a brand new one from the official site, not a used one) or smartphones or computers that have been built for maximum security (BitWings is one company that is developing such devices). Many beginners and even more experienced crypto people forget that even though blockchain is decentralized and secure, most exchanges are not like this. Most well known exchanges are still centralized which means they are not as secure as you would hope to. Just look at the news.
    19  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Trading on: February 20, 2019, 02:29:35 PM
    Whatever your preferred way is, you still have to keep your stacks safe. I have heard too many stories about lost funds it's ridiculous. Doesn't matter if you prefer to keep your funds on a cold storage wallet, on a piece of paper, or on a secure device like the phone by BitWings, just make sure that no one has access to your funds.
    20  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: risk in hodling and trading strategy on: February 20, 2019, 01:30:07 PM
    Hodling definitely has its risks. Starting from losing 90% of your wallets value in a bear market to losing your funds because of a scam or a hack. The last point is especially true if someone holds their tokens on an exchange or a mobile wallet that might not be the most legit one. You could even lose your funds from a trusted wallet if your devices get compromised by reckless behavior on the internet. It is essential to protect your devices and put the best security measures in place. Using hardware wallets or smartphones dedicated specially for cryptocurrencies, like the Wings WX smartphone by BitWings, greatly reduce the risk of losing your funds due to viruses or hackers. Stay safe out there!

    True that! One of my pals recently lost his crypto from his mobile wallet due to a virus (he must have clicked the link to get his millions from that Nigerian prince or something). I found the article about the Wings WX on this forum yesterday, seems like a solid phone. Haven't seen such security features on a phone before. If anyone's interested, the thread is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5110359
