BITCOIN VS. ETHEREUM VS. LITECOIN

While cryptocurrency has only recently become a popular term in finance, it has been around for a long time. Before names like BitcoinEthereum, and Litecoin even existed, there were attempts to create a decentralized currency.
David Chaum, a respected cryptographer, launched ECash, an anonymous system in the 1990s but it failed. Chaum built the system on currently existing government financial principles and infrastructure like credit cards. RPOW, BitGold, B-Money were also created but failed.
Cryptographers could not get past specific challenges that they faced at the time. The first challenge was how to achieve true decentralization and the second was the issue of double spending. The prevention of double spending meant the use of a third-party clearing house. This wasn’t acceptable because to achieve the type of innovative digital finance they wanted; the system had to be independent of any institution.
In 2008, cryptographers finally stumbled on the information they had been searching for when an anonymous contender released the blueprint for a digital currency known as Bitcoin. It showed the technical specifications of the blockchain — a decentralized technology that creates a trustless, permissionless system and eliminates the problem of double spending. This new technology took the world by storm, later leading to changes in the financial industry as well as other industries such as real estate. With the cryptocurrency revolution, came many coins, tokens, and altcoins. Here, we take a deep dive into the similarities and differences between some of the most popular and valued ones: Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.

BITCOIN EXPLAINED

Bitcoin is a digital currency, created as a store of value for the anonymous exchange of goods and services online. It typically has all the properties of a more traditional currency and can be broken down into smaller parts, up to eight decimal places. It’s also the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF BITCOIN

Bitcoin first originated in 2008 when an anonymous programmer under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamotoreleased a paper in a cryptography mailing list. This paper detailed the workings of a new digital currency, built on blockchain technology. The virtual currency was designed to imitate key qualities of traditional money while providing anonymity, transparency and eliminating the need for a third party.

Partnering with ConsenSys, Amazon Web Services Launches Kaleido Blockchain Platform

Introducing Kaleido, Amazon’s Foray into Blockchain

Amazon just made its entrance into the blockchain industry, and it’s opening the door with a platform that’s meant to make it easier for businesses and enterprises to implement the nascent technology.

The web services monolith has partnered with the Ethereum incubator ConsenSys to bring the Kaleido Blockchain Business Cloud platform, “an all-in-one blockchain platform aimed at speeding and simplifying enterprise use of the technology,” to the Amazon Web Service’s Marketplace.

According to an official press release by Amazon, “Kaleido provides a full solution for those ready for something more than do-it-yourself scripts or templates, streamlining the process of standing up secure, private blockchain networks without sacrificing the ability to customize the environment. These private networks offer all the benefits of the underlying blockchain technology while maintaining the necessary levels of security and performance.”

In essence, Kaleido was developed to lower those barriers of entry, both technical and financial, that have kept organizations from applying or experimenting with blockchain technology for their business operations.  The brain-child of ConsenSys, Kaleido runs on Amazon’s Web Services (AWS) and is available on the AWS marketplace. Featured in AWS’s suite of applications, Kaleido is compatible with Amazon’s existing web services, including Amazon EMR, Amazon Athena, and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, among others.

A Hybrid Approach to Enterprise Blockchain Networks

When attempting to implement and deploy blockchain networks, companies often run into insurmountable or costly obstacles. Confronted with a technical labyrinth of consensus mechanisms, governance models, and coding languages–not to mention the lexicon of technical jargon that accompanies these–implementing blockchain solutions can become more of a hassle than the problems they seek to fix.

“Customers are running into a common set of problems and pitfalls as they invest significant time and money in their blockchain projects,” Steve Cerveny, ConsenSys’ enterprise lead and founder of the Kaleido platform explains. “So, we assembled a team to build a platform that pulls together—in a simple, cohesive, and unified way—the right experiences and tools. We knew we needed to design a platform from the business problems down, since that is where the enduring problems are that companies face in the blockchain space.”

Kaleido’s private-public approach to system operations looks to provide organizations with the immutable security of a public blockchain without compromising the flexibility of a private network. This “dual mode” allows Kaleido’s users to link a private, permissioned system built on Ethereum to the public, permissionless Ethereum network at large. Actions on the private chain, therefore, are anchored to the Ethereum mainnet, making it easy to publicly verify any data or information should a conflict arise internally within an organization’s private system.

In addition to these relay anchors, Kaleido features integrated analytics and support for various consensus mechanisms (e.g., IBFT, RAFT, POA) and protocol options (e.g., Geth and Quorum).

A Step Towards Accessibility 


In 2015, ConsenSys attempted to bring similar enterprise solutions to the forefront of the tech industry’s attention with Ethereum Blockchain as-a-Service (E BaaS) through Microsoft’s cloud-powered Azure. E BaaS, though, was a sandbox service that offered its users a set of scripts and basic tools to begin building their own blockchain applications.


Kaleido takes E BaaS’s precedent a step further. More than mere scripts and tools, it is a fully-functional, ready-to-deploy blockchain platform available through Amazon’s cloud. This will allow entities with no former blockchain experience or coding talent to launch solutions that meet their privacy, compliance, and sclability needs while retaining the blockchain’s public assurance of security and reliability.

As the first ever blockchain software as a service built on Ethereum, Kaleido could be an augur for the future of blockchain’s mainstream and conventional adoption.

“Since the inception of ConsenSys in 2014, we have been on a mission to accelerate the adoption of Ethereum and all the benefits that decentralization can bring to business and societies around the world,” states Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys. “We believe Kaleido will become a de-facto standard and a global blockchain platform for business, providing an underlying foundation that until today was missing from the enterprise toolkit.”

What to do when you're scam Online

Victims of scams don't always report when they've been conned because they feel embarrassed for having fallen for a scam.

If you have just fallen for a scam, you shouldn't feel embarrassed. It can happen to anyone. Scammers are constantly refining their scams to make them as effective as possible. They know what works and what doesn't.

If you're reading this article then you are here to find out what you can do after you've been scammed. Here are some tips to help you try and recover after you've become the victim of an online scam:

Call Your Credit Card Company or Bank Immediately After You Realize That You've Been Scammed

If you've given out your credit card number or bank information to a suspected scammer then you need to tell your financial institution as soon as possible so they can put a hold on your account to prevent further charges against it. Always call them on the number on the back of your card or on your most recent statement. Never call a number in an email as it might be part of a phishing scam.

File a Police Report

Calling the police after you've been scammed might sound silly but it's not. You were just robbed, weren't you? When you're robbed on the street you contact the police, right? It shouldn't matter how you were robbed. The fact that the criminal used the Internet to steal your money doesn't make it any less of a crime.

You'll need to file a police report as soon as possible after you've been scammed, especially if money was actually stolen from your account. Your bank and/or credit card company will likely want a copy of the police report as will the major credit agencies.

You probably shouldn't call 9-1-1 for this type of issue, unless the scammer is threatening your life and you are in physical danger. When filing an Internet scam / fraud-related report, you may want to call the non-emergency number for your local police department and ask for the fraud or computer-related crimes division.


Format Your Computer

Yes, you heard me right, format your computer, I repeat format your computer if you get scammed from a phishing site. Most common way hackers get hold of your information is by remotely installing malware on your computer, and if you did not format, the malware will still be ruling in your system which will give the license to hack you again, even if you change your password because they will have access to it.


Report at ECONSUMER.COM

At econsumer.gov, you can report international scams and learn about other steps you can take to combat fraud.  Your complaints help consumer protection agencies around the world spot trends and work together to prevent international scams.

Today, consumer protection agencies in 36 countries participate in econsumer.gov. To respond to the challenges of internet fraud and improve consumer confidence, econsumer.gov began in April of 2001 to gather and share cross-border e-commerce complaints.
The project has two components:

A public website that allows consumers to make cross-border fraud complaints. It’s currently available in English, French, German, Korean, Japanese, Polish, Spanish, and Turkish.
A secure econsumer.gov website that allows law enforcement around the world to share and access consumer complaint data and other investigative information.  The secure website is hosted through the Consumer Sentinel Network platform by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
