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.

UK mulls plan to ban plastic straws and cut waste

Apr 20, 2018

LONDON — The World Health Organization says the first-ever vaccine for dengue needs to be dealt with in "a much safer way," meaning that the shot should mostly be given to people who have previously been infected with the disease. In November, the vaccine's manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur, said people who had never been sickened by dengue before were at risk of developing a more serious disease after getting the shot. After a two-day meeting this week, WHO's independent vaccines group said it now had proof the vaccine should only be used "exclusively or almost exclusively in people who have already...

Apr 20, 2018

THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has been thrust once again into the international limelight by a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain and allegations of a chemical bombardment on the Syrian city of Douma. Once a little-known disarmament organization, the OPCW rose to prominence when it won the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize and has stayed in the public eye ever since amid repeated allegations of chemical weapon use in Syria during the Mideast nation's seven-year civil war. Members of the organization's Fact Finding Mission are in Syria attempting to...
