Copyrights and Blockchain Solutions

Copyrighting protects the physical and tangible manifestation of original ideas. Specific laws and regulations regarding copyrights vary within jurisdictions, but there are still common characteristics between them. Copyright in the Digital Age: The Problem Copyright enforcement faces unique challenges in the digital age. Original ideas can take physical form without being tangible. A great example can be found in the music industry. Today, songs exist purely as digital information, making it easier to be infinitely replicated and shared for free. These unique challenges are a result of new technology. However, technology can also provide solutions for copyright protection and enforcement. Copyright...

At the very least, the options available are increasing in size, scope and variety. Traditionally, anyone wishing to start a new venture was limited to financing options from centralised institutions and services, such as banks, venture capital and institutional players. The Revolution Begins: Crowdfunding The first iteration of a diverse ecosystem occurred with the arrival of crowdfunding platforms. Here, individual contributors from anywhere could share funds as they desired, and in any project they liked....

Split Ether and ETC in Jaxx with One Click

Jaxx wallet released an explainer video which shows users how to split their Ether and ETC with a few clicks.

DAO Hacker Donates Funds to ETC Development Team Ethereum

DAO Hacker Donates Funds to ETC Development Team

Earlier this week, the alleged DAO hacker moved their funds from the Ethereum Classic chain. While transferring the Ether, the hacker moved 1,000 ETC, approximately $1420 at the time of publication, to the Ethereum Classic’s development team. The address was originally listed by ETC member, Bit Novosti, as a donation address to help with future ETC projects. This donation kept many believing the theory that the DAO hack in June was an insider job. However, it was a small donation. The hacker stole over 3.6 million Ether, currently valued above $5 million. If this theory were true, the hacker would have sent a significant amount to the ETC developers. A logical reason for the...
