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.

Feb 22, 2018

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Defending champion Elina Svitolina needed more than two hours to overcome Qiang Wang 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 Wednesday and reach the quarterfinals of the Dubai Championships. However, French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko's slumped to her sixth loss in nine matches, and fourth opening-match loss of the season.

As World Cup looms, Willian claims Chelsea spotlight

Feb 22, 2018

LONDON — Willian isn't used to receiving much acclaim. Even a place in Chelsea's starting lineup isn't certain. And if any Chelsea player was going to outshine Lionel Messi against Barcelona, surely it was going to be Eden Hazard. Perhaps that's why Barcelona underestimated Willian on Tuesday night, leaving him unmarked in dangerous spots so often. While Hazard's contribution as the false nine was modest, Willian produced one of his most complete performances for Chelsea in the Champions League last-16 first leg. It wasn't just his 11th goal of the season — the opener that rattled Barcelona in the second...

FIFA lifts ban on 2026 World Cup voters publicly backing bid

Feb 22, 2018

LONDON — A ban on voters publicly endorsing a 2026 World Cup bid has been lifted by FIFA in the face of criticism from soccer officials. The governing body last month ordered officials not to openly discuss the merits of either the joint Northern American bid, featuring the United States, Canada and Mexico, or the rival Morocco contender. It led to Confederation of African Football President Ahmad, who goes by just one name, expressing frustration at being restricted from backing his continent's bid. But FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura informed members this week of an about-turn in a letter to...

Messi scores vs Chelsea at 9th attempt to give Barca CL draw

Feb 22, 2018

LONDON — Lionel Messi finally managed one of the few things he had yet to achieve in football. At his ninth attempt, the five-time world player of the year finally scored against Chelsea, salvaging a 1-1 draw on Tuesday and halting his longest drought against any opponent after 730 minutes. By cancelling out Willian's opener, Messi also gave Barcelona a narrow edge in their Champions League round-of-16 matchup heading into the second leg at Camp Nou on March 14. The night's other game produced a far more conclusive outcome with Thomas Mueller and Robert Lewandowski both scoring twice as Bayern...

Bayern cruises to 5-0 win over Besiktas in Champions League

Feb 22, 2018

MUNICH — Thomas Mueller and Robert Lewandowski both scored twice as Bayern Munich defeated 10-man Besiktas 5-0 Tuesday to all but secure progress to the Champions League quarterfinals for the seventh straight season. Bayern played with an extra man after Domagoj Vida was sent off early for bringing down Lewandowski as the last defender, but didn't open the scoring until the 43rd minute when Mueller netted from close range. The floodgates opened after the break, though, as Kingsley Coman doubled the lead and Mueller grabbed his second midway through the second half. Lewandowski polished off the win with two late...
