Pura Cryptocurrency on Blockchain-Big Data Fusion for Success

Blockchain is virtually immune to hacking and guarantees the security of the information stored in the ledger.

Detroit, MI - April 16, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

The term Blockchain refers to the technological revolution of digital ledgers safely, securely, and transparently monitoring transactions online. What big data and Blockchain together means for the financial industry is the potential to break into the digital world that until now is largely untouched on a large scale. 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.

Germany makes Mesut Ozil the scapegoat for World Cup exit

Jul 17, 2018

BERLIN — Same coach, same team manager, same president. And yet after almost two weeks of reflection, the German soccer federation (DFB) appears to have decided midfielder Mesut Ozil is the main culprit for the team's shock early World Cup exit. Team manager Oliver Bierhoff wondered in a newspaper interview if Ozil should even have been taken to the tournament in Russia, while DFB president Reinhard Grindel followed up by demanding the player provide an "answer." Joachim Loew has not commented on the matter since deciding to stay on as coach. Ozil, long a key player for Loew, has been...

Migration, outreach mean diversity is soccer's new normal

Jul 17, 2018

PARIS — When France's xenophobic fringes disparage the country's diverse World Cup team as more African than European, fans say, "So what?" And then respond with a resounding "Allez les Bleus!" At a time when populist politicians are trying to choke off or reroute migration flows, what matters to fans of the teams that made the semifinals — England, France, Belgium and Croatia — wasn't the players' ancestry but that they excelled on the field. Yes, the French team has roots stretching across borders, seas and hemispheres, tracing histories of colonization and the paths of migration that shaped today's world....

Leipzig sporting director Rangnick is interim coach again

Jul 17, 2018

LEIPZIG, Germany — Leipzig's sporting director Ralf Rangnick is taking over as coach again while the club waits for Hoffenheim's Julian Nagelsmann to join in 2019. The Bundesliga side said Monday that Rangnick would be assisted by former New York Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch and Leipzig's under-19 coach Robert Klauss. Rangnick previously led the team in season 2015-16, leading it to promotion before Ralph Hasenhuettl took over ahead of its Bundesliga debut. Hasenhuettl quit in May after failing to agree a contract extension. Hoffenheim announced last month that Nagelsmann, the German soccer federation's coach of the year for 2016,...

HANNOVER, Germany — United States striker Bobby Wood switched to Bundesliga side Hannover from relegated Hamburger SV on Monday. The 25-year-old Wood joined on loan for one year, with the option to then make the switch permanent, Hannover said in a statement.
