Pura Cryptocurrency On the Rising Success of Big Data-Blockchain Projects

The simplest definition of blockchain is a shared immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions.

Detroit, MI - February 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

With the rise of publicity and interest in cryptocurrency harvesting and investing in recent years, many speculate on the future of spending, receiving, and transferring money online. Pura Cryptocurrency believes the future of online money management and banking is actually a fusion of big data and blockchain transaction recording. The distributed ledger technology (DLT), as blockchain is also known, seized the spotlight after the emergence of Bitcoin in 2009, but the underlying principles were described back in 1991 by cryptographers Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta. Although DLT was initially explored within the context of cryptocurrencies, it quickly became obvious that the technology has implications far beyond these confines. With two such remarkable phenomena co-existing in the past decade, it was inevitable that researchers, corporations, and market participants would turn their attention to investigating the combined potential of Big Data and blockchain, and the initial signs point to a truly extraordinary mixture, according to the experts of the Pura Cryptocurrency project.

The simplest definition of blockchain is perhaps the one provided by IBM, which explains it as “a shared immutable ledger for recording the history of transactions.” On the other hand, we have artificial intelligence (AI) – the key technology employed in Big Data analytics. As complexity scientist and data strategist Francesco Corea puts it, “Blockchain and AI are the two extreme sides of the technology spectrum: one fostering centralized intelligence on close data platforms, the other promoting decentralized applications in an open-data environment.” Nevertheless, Corea is among those who believe that the two technologies can work together, each amplifying the strengths of the other. AI can help blockchain overcome some of its limitations by providing support in areas such as energy consumption management, scalability, layer and application security, and efficiency, among others. Conversely, DLT can augment AI by increasing effectiveness and trustworthiness, lowering market entry barriers, and reducing catastrophic risks scenarios.

While blockchain is virtually immune to hacking and guarantees the security of the information stored in the ledger, it is not designed to handle the analytics aspect, which is the reason Big Data carries so much weight, Pura Cryptocurrency panel notes. According to Trent McConaghy, chief technology officer of BigChainDB, the intersection of DLT and AI will provide companies with far more than data integrity, as critical as that is. In a world where the two technologies complement each other, there will be more information gathered, which will in turn improve modeling capabilities. Furthermore, “when data from silos is merged, you don’t just get a better dataset, you get a qualitatively new dataset. Which leads to a qualitatively new model, from which you can glean new insights and have new business applications,” McConaghy wrote. Another executive who believes in the tremendous potential of this alliance is Nikunj Thakkar, CEO of DataOne Innovation Labs. According to him, the marriage of blockchain and Big Data will enhance the accuracy and security of the data shared, refine decision-making in machine learning, provide real-time detection of illegal activities, and ensure complete automation, among others. “There is no doubt that the future of business, transport and government is poised to undergo a radical transformation when the coming together of Big Data and blockchain becomes reality in the next decade,” Thakkar concludes.

Pura Cryptocurrency was created with a vision to democratize transactions, making them affordable for everyone by eliminating intermediaries such as banks and payment processing companies. This international cryptocurrency allows people to send money in an instant, directly and anonymously. Run by a team of 20+ experts, Pura is also the world’s first socially and environmentally conscious digital currency project: it is implementing a protocol that will divert 10% of its mining rewards to initiatives benefiting the planet and the public.

Danish govt: Minister's views on fasting Muslims are her own

May 22, 2018

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Assertions by Denmark's immigration minister that Muslims fasting for Ramadan pose a safety hazard in some jobs do not represent the views of the country's government, a spokeswoman for the ruling coalition said Tuesday. Integration Minister Inger Stoejberg faced growing criticism over a blog post published Monday that urged residents observing a month of dawn-to-dusk fasting to take leave from work "to avoid negative consequences for the rest of Danish society." Karen Ellemann, chief whip of the Liberal Party, said Tuesday after an ordinary party meeting that Stoejberg's remarks were not a formal proposal to change the...

'Wake-up call': Vegas casino workers vote on citywide strike

May 22, 2018

LAS VEGAS — Hundreds of unionized Las Vegas casino workers gathered at a university arena in red T-shirts and work uniforms as they voted Tuesday on whether to call for a citywide strike that could have huge financial implications for the tourist-dependent destination. Members of the Culinary Union cast ballots in the first of two separate sessions expected to draw as many as 25,000 workers and show the collective power of the largest labor organization in Nevada. A majority yes vote would not immediately affect the casinos but would give union negotiators a huge bargaining chip by allowing them to...

SEATTLE — Tourism is booming in Seattle. Just take a look at the Space Needle.

Seattle and King County benefited from $7.4 billion of spending by a record 40 million visitors last year, a number that has grown annually since the 2008 recession, according to Visit Seattle, a nonprofit advocacy group for the tourism industry.

May 22, 2018

NAGRIG, Egypt — The cafe began to fill up more than two hours before kickoff. By the time the match began, some 200 men and boys — some as young as five — huddled around two large TV screens at a cafe Mohamed Salah frequents when he's back visiting his village deep in Egypt's Nile Delta. Salah didn't score, but almost everyone at the cafe let out a joyous scream and clapped enthusiastically at the final whistle: Liverpool, the English club for which Salah has scored more than 40 goals since he joined this season, has reached the final of...

ORLANDO, Fla. — If this is a golden age for theme parks, then nowhere are new thrills more abundant than in Orlando where the major theme park resorts have been in an arms race, opening new attractions every year recently, with even bigger blockbusters slated for next year. Theme park aficionados will have to wait until 2019 for the openings of a Star Wars land at Walt Disney World, a new Harry Potter ride at Universal Orlando Resort and a Sesame Street-themed land at SeaWorld Orlando. But theme park experts say this year's crop of lands and rides — including...
