What is Ethereum? | The Ultimate Beginners’ Guide

Ethereum is an open-source blockchain-based platform that essentially enables hundreds of decentralized cryptocurrencies and projects to be built and deployed exist without having to build their own blockchains.
With the second largest market cap in the cryptocurrency world, Ethereum has drawn a lot of attention from investors and crypto enthusiasts alike.
Ethereum not only presents a significant change to the status quo, it also allows for the quick development and deployment of new applications presenting niche solutions for various industries.
While Ethereum’s utility is obvious to programmers and the tech world at large, many people who are less tech-savvy have trouble understanding it. We’ve designed this guide to appeal to both crowds and expose anyone from complete crypto beginners and intermediates to this potentially world-changing cryptocurrency.

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.”

How to use Instagram poll on story



Last year August, Instagram Stories was born, and over the last year what may have at first seemed like a cheesy Snapchat clone has grown up to become an incredibly popular feature with its own weird quirks. The app’s latest update brings Instagram Stories even further away from the Snapchat mold by introducing polls, a new feature that allows you to ask a question and receive responses from your friends and followers.😘😘😘

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.

Lopetugui Spain coach has been sacked few hours to the kick-off of world cup


SPAIN'S BIZARRE 24 HOURS
TUESDAY
4pm: Julen Lopetegui is announced as the new Real Madrid manager and it is confirmed he will take over after the World Cup
WEDNESDAY
8.30am: Spain announce they will hold a press conference amid reports Lopetegui's job is under threat
9.30am: The press conference is delayed by an hour as Spanish FA chiefs attempt to thrash out a solution to the problem
9.45am: Spanish players, led by Sergio Ramos, plead with the head of the Spanish FA, Luis Rubiales, to allow Lopetegui to keep his job
10am: Spanish superfan Manolo 'el del Bombo', who bangs the drums in support at matches, storms into the press conference, concerned about his team's fortunes at the World Cup
10.15am: Reports emanating from Spain that the players have convinced the Spanish FA's top brass to allow Lopetegui to continue through the World Cup
10.30am: The Spanish FA finally take the stage at their press conference, but there is no sign of Lopetegui
10.35am: Rubiales announces Lopetegui has been relieved of his duties and claims Spain knew of the manager's move to Real Madrid only five minutes before the club announced it.

Julen Lopetegui is an interesting choice to take over from Zidane. Started his career at Real Madrid and also coached Castilla, so he knows the club and also many of the players from his time with Spain's youth teams and senior side...

The timing is terrible though. This news now becomes the big story when Lopetegui and Spain should be concentrating on the World Cup. It's an unwanted distraction for La Roja and I can't imagine the players are particularly happy, either...

Real Madrid wanted to announce a new coach before the World Cup and they have. But it is not ideal either because Spain (and Lopetegui) could potentially be busy until July 15 (date of WC final). And there is important planning to be done at RM before that...

At the very least, Lopetegui is likely to be involved in conversations about squad planning, transfers, the futures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, etc. Which means his full focus is not with Spain. And it's not any old tournament – it's the World Cup!

Reports have claimed the announcement was made to avoid a leak and that makes sense because that could have caused more damage deeper into the competition. Nevertheless, it is far from ideal.

Apart from the Real Madrid players in his Spain squad, Lopetegui also coached Casemiro at Porto. He is a modern-day coach who is close to his players and is meticulous in his approach. He favors an attack-minded 4-3-3, so maybe more BBC after all...

He is also flexible, though, and it remains to be seen whether he will play 4-3-3 at Real Madrid. He has lots of options with the players at his disposal.

Lopetegui led Spain to European Championship wins at Under-19 and U-21 level, while he took Porto to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2014-15. However, he did not win the league in Portugal and was sacked the following season...

With Spain, he is unbeaten in 20 matches, with 14 wins and six draws. Those include a 3-0 victory over Italy in WC qualifying and a 6-1 friendly win against an Argentina team without Lionel Messi in March. His record is impressive, but so too is his squad.

If anything, he is untried at the highest level. The appointment is a risky one and not only because of the timing. However, with Real Madrid frustrated in their pursuit of Pochettino and others, there were perhaps not many other options out there...

Real Madrid announce Spain boss Julen Lopetegui has the new head coach


spain coach Julen Lopetegui will take over as Real Madrid boss after the World Cup, the La Liga giants have announced.


The move comes as a surprise, with Lopetegui not featuring prominently among the host of managers linked with the role since the departure of Zinedine Zidane days after Madrid's 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Lopetegui, who has been in charge of the national team for the past two years, has agreed on a three-year contract at the Bernabeu.
A club statement said: "Real Madrid CF announces that Julen Lopetegui will coach the first team for the next three seasons.
"Julen Lopetegui will join the club after the participation of the Spanish team in the World Cup, after two years leading the national team."

Zinedine Zidane became the first manager in the Champions League era to win three successive European Cups  CREDIT: PA 
Former goalkeeper Lopetegui, 51, made a sole league appearance for Madrid as a player, and later turned out for rivals Barcelona a handful of times. He coached Madrid's feeder club Castilla in 2008/09 before taking charge of Spain's youth teams.
In May, he signed a two-year extension to remain as Spain coach until 2020 but the call of Madrid has proved stronger.
Zidane's shock departure came after he had guided Madrid to a third straight Champions League title.
But Madrid had finished a distant third as Barcelona took the honors in LaLiga, and Lopetegui will be charged with closing what was a 17-point gap.
Among his first tasks will be resolving the future of Gareth Bale, with Wales forward unhappy with his limited playing time under Zidane and in a powerful position after scoring twice off the bench in the Champions League final.
