  • Can We Digitize the Voting System? Blockchain, Corruption, and Hacking | Brian Behlendorf

    Anyone who's walked into a voting booth and scratched their preference onto a piece of paper knows the same thing: the voting process suffers from a dire lack of technology. Humanity put a man on the moon in 1969--why are we still voting on paper? Going digital isn't just a matter of convenience, but one of accountability—citizens the world over are increasingly losing trust in the democratic system, from miscounted votes, to denying eligible people the right to vote at all. So just how much can we digitize the act of voting? Perhaps blockchain—a public ledger technology where information is irreversibly recorded—can build a better system. Here, Internet pioneer Brian Behlendorf considers two aspects where blockchain can help, and one where it absolutely can't. Better tech can end voter di...

A block chain is a transaction database shared by all nodes participating in a system based on the Bitcoin protocol. A full copy of a currency's block chain contains every transaction ever executed in the currency. With this information, one can find out how much value belonged to each address at any point in history. ------------------------------------------------------------------- BUY BITCOIN SAFELY HERE: http://bit.ly/BuyBitcoinNow ------------------------------------------------------------------- REGISTER FOR A COINBASE ACCOUNT: http://bit.ly/CoinbaseBitcoinSignup ------------------------------------------------------------------- Every block contains a hash of the previous block. This has the effect of creating a chain of blocks from the genesis block to the current block. Each block is guaranteed to come after the previous block chronologically because the previous block's hash would otherwise not be known. Each block is also computationally impractical to modify once it has been in the chain for a while because every block after it would also have to be regenerated. These properties are what make double-spending of bitcoins very difficult. The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin. Honest generators only build onto a block (by referencing it in blocks they create) if it is the latest block in the longest valid chain. "Length" is calculated as total combined difficulty of that chain, not number of blocks, though this distinction is only important in the context of a few potential attacks. A chain is valid if all of the blocks and transactions within it are valid, and only if it starts with the genesis block. For any block on the chain, there is only one path to the genesis block. Coming from the genesis block, however, there can be forks. One-block forks are created from time to time when two blocks are created just a few seconds apart. When that happens, generating nodes build onto whichever one of the blocks they received first. Whichever block ends up being included in the next block becomes part of the main chain because that chain is longer. More serious forks have occurred after fixing bugs that required backward-incompatible changes. Blocks in shorter chains (or invalid chains) are not used for anything. When the bitcoin client switches to another, longer chain, all valid transactions of the blocks inside the shorter chain are re-added to the pool of queued transactions and will be included in another block. The reward for the blocks on the shorter chain will not be present in the longest chain, so they will be practically lost, which is why a network-enforced 100-block maturation time for generations exists. These blocks on the shorter chains are often called "orphan" blocks. This is because the generation transactions do not have a parent block in the longest chain, so these generation transactions show up as orphan in the listtransactions RPC call. Several pools have misinterpreted these messages and started calling their blocks "orphans". In reality, these blocks have a parent block, and might even have children. Because a block can only reference one previous block, it is impossible for two forked chains to merge. • How do Bitcoin Transactions Work? http://www.coindesk.com/information/how-do-bitcoin-transactions-work/ ------------------------------------------------------------------- DID YOU LIKE THIS VIDEO? ------------------------------------------------------------------- Enjoy this video?

Produced by: http://complexitylabs.io/courses Twitter: https://goo.gl/Nu6Qap Facebook: https://goo.gl/Nu6Qap LinkedIn: https://goo.gl/3v1vwF Transcription: The internet is evolving into a new technology paradigm based around smart systems, the blockchain, platforms, and IoT in the coming years, these technologies will interact and converge in new and unpredictable ways The convergence of IoT and blockchain will be a major part of this evolution, enabling new automated service systems and business models... but many unresolved issues remain IOT Internet of Things is the merging of our engineered physical environment with information systems to create smart adaptive objects and environments... it is a fast-growing, increasingly complex network of connected physical systems that are able to process information and communicate peer to peer in order to enable common services. These devices are becoming increasingly ubiquitous ranging from autonomous vehicles to sensors monitoring industrial processes, to smart homes and smart cities. IoT is growing rapidly, according to Gartner the global IoT network will connect 26 billion devices by 2020. The development of an IOT infrastructure to our economies will probably be the greatest engineering challenge of our time... dealing with the sheer amount of data due to come on-stream and security are primary concerns... before mainstream Internet-of-Things adoption can really take hold in a safe and sustainable fashion, these, among other issues, will need to be resolved. Blockchain The blockchain is a secure distributed database for recording transactions... millions of computers networked to create a distributed database for recording and authenticating exchanges of value. With the blockchain, value of any kind can be exchanged directly peer to peer without a centralized authority to record and validate the transaction. The blockchain can provide an automated and secure transaction infrastructure for next generation IoT systems... in its capacity to track billions of connected devices and enable the frictionless processing of transactions and coordination between devices. This decentralized approach would eliminate single points of failure, bottlenecks and potentially make data and transactions more secure.... creating a more resilient ecosystem for devices to run on. Likewise, it would automate transactions, enabling fully autonomous service systems; reduce cost and reduce settlement time from days to seconds One example of an IoT Blockchain system is Slock, a door lock that is connected to a smart contract on the blockchain that controls when and who can open the lock. “The owner of a Slock can set a deposit amount and a price for renting his property, and the user will pay that deposit through a transaction to the Ethereum blockchain, thereby getting permission to open and close that smart lock through their smart phone.” - Christoph Jentzsch Such technology bridges the blockchain and the physical world by making automated smart contracts, thus enabling the frictionless and automated temporary exchange of assets such as bikes, parking lots or rooms. "Smart contracts, a feature of “Bitcoin 2.0” technologies such as Ethereum, could soon operate on the Internet of Things (IoT), control objects in the physical world, and power a new decentralized version of the sharing economy, for example sharing services similar to Uber and Airbnb that operate in pure P2P mode without centralized management." - Bitcoin Magazine Leveraging blockchain for IoT offers new ways to automate business processes and build distributed autonomous service systems... "The true value of the underlying technology -- the blockchain -- has only just begun to be explored, and potential applications to the Internet of Things and Smart Systems are vast."

http://CppCon.org — Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at: https://github.com/cppcon/cppcon2016 — This talk will explain what public blockchain systems like Bitcoin and Ripple are, the unique challenges of developing software for them, and how C++ helps to meet these challenges. Security issues are paramount. Blockchain systems are open source, have large attack surfaces, and can cause significant financial damage if they have exploitable defects. Performance and scalability are also major concerns. C++ provides a unique balance that helps meet these challenges. The language's design makes it possible to catch bugs at compile time, write modular code that can be tested, develop flexible data structures and manage resources. Yet, where performance is critical, it does not obscure what your code is making the computer actually do. The primary purpose of the talk is to explain what blockchains are, increase understanding of the unusual challenges developers of blockchain software experience, and to demonstrate why C++ is a good choice to address them. — David Schwartz is the Chief Cryptographer of Ripple, a distributed payment network. Also known as "JoelKatz", he is a respected voice in the crypto-currency community. David has also developed secure messaging and cloud storage software for government and military applications. — Videos Filmed & Edited by Bash Films: http://www.BashFilms.com

Anyone who's walked into a voting booth and scratched their preference onto a piece of paper knows the same thing: the voting process suffers from a dire lack of technology. Humanity put a man on the moon in 1969--why are we still voting on paper? Going digital isn't just a matter of convenience, but one of accountability—citizens the world over are increasingly losing trust in the democratic system, from miscounted votes, to denying eligible people the right to vote at all. So just how much can we digitize the act of voting? Perhaps blockchain—a public ledger technology where information is irreversibly recorded—can build a better system. Here, Internet pioneer Brian Behlendorf considers two aspects where blockchain can help, and one where it absolutely can't. Better tech can end voter discrimination at polling stations, and falsely reported totals at the state and national levels, but will we ever be able to vote on our mobile devices from the comfort of a blanket fort? Don't get your hopes up. Brian Behlendorf is the executive director of Hyperledger; for more info, visit http://www.hyperledger.org. Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/brian-behlendorf-can-blockchain-build-a-better-voting-system Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: Many people have asked: can blockchain technology help provide answers to challenges that typically have suffered from lack of technology, or that has suffered from poor technology applications. One of those being the way that voting works in the United States. I think of this in three distinct phases. There’s the phase before voting where keeping track of who is registered to vote and where they’re allowed to vote, it’s been harder than it should have been. We have a lot of examples of people showing up at polling places and being denied the right to vote and it seems like paperwork goes missing and people get removed from voting roles, that sort of thing. A public ledger that tracked who was registered to vote where and allowed people to look at that from their home machine and then confirm that when they showed up at the poll, would do a lot to reestablish trust in the process of registering to vote and validating that everybody who is entitled to vote is able to do that, providing an independent verification of that. There’s a second phase I’ll get to in a bit, but there’s a third phase, which is after the vote, when you’re taking the totals that come from a polling place, that come from vote by mail for example in Oregon. We have to kind of trust that the system works. We have to hope that everything is counted correctly at the local level and then it’s totaled up correctly at the state level and then reported nationally et cetera. And we’re fortunately at a point where the basis of that trust hasn’t been violated yet, but in many countries it is. In many countries there’s not a lot of confidence that the total from a polling place is accurately summed up. So using a distributed ledger not to track the individual votes but to track the totals from each of the polling places would be a way to allow the public to understand: 'Okay the local polling place I went and voted at is reporting a thousand votes, 500 for candidate X, 500 for candidate Y, that seems about right. I don’t know if my vote specifically counted, but I know that at least the polling place I was at counted appropriately and they didn’t try to pretend they were 100,000 votes.' So at the beginning of that process and the tail end of that process using a public distributed ledger to record that makes a lot of sense. But in the middle, the actual act of walking into a booth and registering a vote, or a lot of people want to do voting by mobile device or by computer; I’m very worried about the digitization of that. Our computers fail us all the time and malware and other threats could really step in and make it so that I think I’m voting for one candidate but it gets recorded for another. And we have to think, in the United States, we care quite a bit about the confidentiality of our vote even to the point where I get no receipt, I can’t go to a bar and prove that I voted for somebody and get a discount for it—that would be considered bribery. So we can’t simply come up with a system that puts all the original votes into a public ledger and provides proof that somebody voted a certain way or that becomes a corruptive process. So I think we still need voter-verified paper ballots as a path to auditing, but with the registration at the beginning and the summing at the end conducted by a public ledger I think we would do a tremendous amount to reestablish confidence in the voting system.

The term 'blockchain' has been increasingly thrown around due to a rise in cryptocurrency popularity. Here is a speedy explanation of what it is and how it works. The below terms may be useful before watching the video: Encryption: - The process of converting information or data into a code, mainly to prevent unauthorized access. Hash Code: - A hash function is any function that can be used to map data of arbitrary size to data of fixed size. The values returned by a hash function are called hash values, hash codes, digests, or simply hashes. Centralized System: - A system where decisions for the system goal are made in a central mechanism and transmitted to executive components. Distributed System: - A distributed system consists of a collection of autonomous computers, connected through a network and distribution middleware, which enables computers to coordinate their activities and to share the resources of the system, so that users perceive the system as a single, integrated computing facility.

As the first transmission system operator, TenneT uses networked, decentralized home storage with the blockchain to stabilize the power grid. Flexible use of battery storage reduces network-stabilizing emergency measures. After a successful pilot phase, the blockchain technology can be further expanded through IBM's open source-based solution. In a second project in the Netherlands, together with Vandebron, TenneT uses the charging of electric vehicles to keep the balance between consumption and production stable. Both pilot projects are further steps to make the electricity network fit for the future. TenneT taking power further www.tennet.eu www.tennet-virtual-vision.eu

This is a must watch! Host Josh Sigurdson and author John Sneisen were joined by derivatives and economic trend expert Stephen Kendal for a presentation that may just change the way we look at the world. Stephen brought us groundbreaking information that no one is talking about basically breaking down step by step how central bankers intend to impose a world currency on the populace using blockchain derivatives. This analysis has never been done before for the masses to see and understand. Stephen Kendal started by explaining derivatives and the different types of derivatives. From that, he moved on to basic mortgage loans, bundled loans, S.P.E. (Special Purpose Entity) or S.P.V. (Special Purpose Vehicles), mortgage backed security (M.B.S.), collateralized debt obligation (C.D.O.), credit default swap (C.D.S.), other types of derivatives. Stephen then wrapped everything up by explaining blockchain technology and the future implementation of blockchain by central bankers. Stephen predicts that we will soon see this implementation as the economy crashes and central banks capitalize on their lack of accountability. Basically, the creation of a New World Order as has been pushed for decades by the highest up elites will emanate itself with blockchain derivatives forever dooming the world economy. This is historic, but not only that, it's disastrous and terrifying. If we can all come to understand what's happening right now, we may be able to stop this. Share this report on all social medias and let's make sure people are aware of what's happening!
