Last Wednesday Dan Wasyluk attended the Blockchain Expo North America and took part in the keynote panel discussion. Dan met the Whiteblock team who were demonstrating their blockchain stress testing /TPS platform, and had a chance to see a demo of the new Blocknet XRouter tech; peer-to-peer trading with Syscoin, Litecoin, among others!
During the recent Syscoin community dev call, Jim from BCF gave a live demonstration of Pangolin and Blockusign - check it out here.

2FA and masternode services page coming…
D: DID based identities tied to aliases is the current thinking
D: The long term plan is to improve them, and tie them to other IDM platforms. The DID spec is flexible enough to allow these sorts of relationships. The BMD idents spec was more a POC for how we could attach expanded data to aliases. The next iteration of identities should be more efficient in terms of blockchain data use as well.
D: It will be closed source added to IP we’re trying to build up for BCF.
D: My thought here is that you float the fees as part of your business structure and you only expose end users to the fiat costs. So for example you price the service at network fee + margin and you build in some volatility risk to the margin. We could also customize the Pangolin experience to never expose users to the tokens as part of a product-integrated experience.
D: You could do this with aliases or with certificates.
D: The event was great, very different audience than what we normally get at ‘blockchain’ conferences. huge event too, you could get lose in that expo hall. i was showing blockchainswaps at the booth (ping @Curious Cosmos) as an example of what can be built on top of SYS :thumbsup:
D: A combination of those things, the main focus of which is really product focused rather than service focused, more details coming soon
D: We haven’t re-approached them on that, but i think they are open to it. They need to be able to easily bulk upload/edit/delete for it to work for them and u run into some blockchain limitations there. yeah there are ways to address that by moving some of the offer data offchain and aggregating changes before writing them to the chian these are things we would like to implement in future iterations of sys. sys4 in the first milestone release won’t have this feature it will just pave the way for it through… other things it brings. it will also provide a lot more flexibility for asset use cases
Postponed till next week.
