Blockchains Can Scale to Enterprise Levels, Here’s Why

In a television interview last month, I compared the state of blockchain adoption to a 4-stage relay race, saying we’re at stage 3 where the baton is being passed from anarchist-early adopters onto enterprisers. In a subsequent follow-up interview on February 8th, I said the portal to mass scale consumer adoption in the U.S. would be thru the banks, given their large existing footprint into 94% of U.S. households. I also put a time frame on it of 2 years, which at that moment may have seemed ambitious. If anything, the announcement from JPMorgan the following week about launching its own coin may already render that outlook conservative! This leads directly into the final point I wish to make at this time regarding the odds and pace of mass scale blockchain consumer adoption.

If an outlook, forecast or “bet” (for lack of a better word) comes down to technologists solving for scale … I say take it, take it every time … they always come thru for us and often exceed their own expectations.

In the February interview, I also said the largest hurdle to enterprise blockchain adoption at this stage is scale; expressed as transactions per second (tx/s) the enterprise payment processing standards Visa and Mastercard routinely process 2,000 tx/s and exceed 50,000 tx/s during holiday peak seasons, versus a paltry-looking 7 tx/s for the current Bitcoin and Ethereum networks. However large that gap may seem, there are already distributed ledger projects approaching those levels and beyond, with many competing approaches and efforts in the works. More generally, we should all derive confidence from technologists on this point – if there’s anything we can count on them getting right it’s scale: 

  • They did it with storage where one can now rent a whopping 2 terabytes in the cloud for about $10/month (depending on provider); 
  • They’re doing it with 5G bandwidth which is “100 times faster than the previous cellular technology, 4G LTE” to address the so-called “last mile” problem;
  • And perhaps the most famous scaling achievement thus far is computing power; largely attributed to former Intel CEO Gordon Moore and thus known as “Moore’s Law“, it is a forecast originated in the 1960s which stated that integrated circuit silicon chip productivity would double about every 18 months. Initially projected to hit a ceiling in the mid-1970s, this productivity increase has only begun to observably slow recently (although some would argue the data coming in is still too early to officially declare the law expired).

In any case, the technologists exceeded their own expectations by at least 4 decades!

“The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can … scale much larger … for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling.” Satoshi Nakamoto, April 2009

Back to blockchains, the beauty of the current race to scale for mass consumer adoption is that we don’t need to predict some intricate trifecta or even which “horse” will cross the finish line first, we just need at least one of them to do it.

With regard to scale and the protocol described in the Bitcoin whitepaper, Satoshi Nakamoto had this to say: “The existing Visa credit card network processes about 15 million Internet purchases per day worldwide. Bitcoin can … scale much larger … for a fraction of the cost. It never really hits a scale ceiling” [full quote here]. On the outlook of future metrics, the pseudonymous character also asserted: “I’m sure that in 20 years there will either be very large transaction volume or no volume.” Halfway thru the experiment and with the Bitcoin network alone managing in excess of 300,000 transactions per day (at the time of this writing), I think it’s safe to say we’re past the “no volume” threshold, and well on our way to “very large transaction volume.”  

In a nutshell, if an outlook, forecast or “bet” (for lack of a better word) comes down to technologists solving for scale (once identified as the key constraint) I say take it, take it every time … they always come thru for us, and often exceed their own expectations.

You may have heard about Ethereum and wonder what it is all about. This is a type of crypto-platform platform that has been developing since 2013. This new form of compensation is becoming more and more popular as an electronic means of rewarding goods or services. The Ethereum platform is open source so it is accessible to the public. It is based on block technology and offers a virtual machine capable of performing scripts through the use of an internal node network. In addition, it gives you coins that are a form of crypto-gravity. Coins are called “ether”. You can interpret it as money if you want it because it has a similar, though not accurate, value. If you are not familiar with the development of cryptoLight platforms, the whole process may seem complicated, but you can be informed as it quickly catches people and can be something that deserves your attention.
Here are ten things you may not know about Ethereum.

1. Ethereum was funded through so-called “crowdfunding” (group funding).
Vitalc Buttern is a researcher in the crypto-lite, as well as a battler programmer. He had the idea of ”Ethereum” by the end of 2013, but he did not have enough resources to make his idea a reality. As many artists are doing these days, it has turned to a kind of group funding to get the capital needed to further develop the program and launch the distribution. His project was successful in online public sale in July-August 2014. The program was completed and delivered by July 30, 2015.

2. Ethereum has achieved impressive advances in the development
The Ethereum Alliance, known as the EEA, is a collaboration of many block start-ups. Also joined by Fortune 500 companies and research groups. It is a non-profit organization that consists of 116 members of the enterprise. The organization has been developed to coordinate the further development, distribution, and use of the permitted version of Block Ethereum in the industry.

3. Ethereum is supported by large businesses
Some of the world’s leading corporations joined the EEA and supported “further development.” Some of the most famous companies are Samsung SDS, Toyota Research Institute, Banco Santander, Microsoft, J.P.Morgan, Merck GaA, Intel, Deloitte, DTCC, ING, Accenture, Consensys, Bank of Canada and BNY Mellon.

4. Security is the top concern of the company
Whenever you deal with a cryptoLogic system, security is a top priority. While exceptional measures have been taken to strengthen the integrity and protect the platform from intruders, hackers are constantly trying to penetrate security mechanisms and gain access to their own destruction. There have been no such cases, and the company is vigilant in maintaining the safety standards and improving them accordingly.

5. The change will be the constant for Ethereum
Some EEA members have indicated the need to continue investigating hybrid architectures that could anchor private blocks to Ethereum’s public block. This would help to expand the future platform, making it easier to add additional blocks that would help potentially exponential growth. These are their plans for the future of the platform.

6. EEA expresses concern about servility
Since this type of environment is constantly changing, there is a danger that the expansion of the platform and the inclusion of additional anchors on a block will cause problems with servility. The real concern comes from the inclusion of permitted and seamless blocks when the bridge is made. Much work still needs to be done by the participating research organizations as well as by the engineers who create the drawings that will “conduct” the behavior of the platform.

7. Undertakings to be addressed
EEA is working on the creation of open source reference standards, along with private “authorized” versions of the block, which will cover various stakeholders in automotive, consulting, management, healthcare, technology, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, mobile and other industries. Ethereum developers are currently taking part in the discussions and plans for progress on these projects.

8. Ethereum started as the paper
When Vitalic Butterin had the first idea of the Ethereum platform, he described it as “white paper”. He “puts on the table” a lot of experience in the Bitcoin industry, actually worked as a programmer. It starts with building decentralized applications.

9. Butterin had to fight to make his way
Vital Buchterin initially stood behind the argument that Bitcoin requires scripting language to develop an application. There was a disagreement with the core team of Ethereum, and although he was opposed to his idea, he ventured to develop a new platform that included scripting language that was more common. The project started in 2014 through the Ethereum Switzerland, a nonprofit foundation.

10. The scale was the real concern
Ethereum has shown to the world that the use of the digital currency can work very well. Initially, technological developments were so impressive that they brought a lot of praise and support, but EAA still had concerns about the scale of the platform. From what we have so far touched, the issues related to the various aspects of vulnerability created by expansion are currently being explored by several groups of professionals who are dealing with problems before the project starts.

Ethereum (ETH)-based chat platform Status is laying off 25 percent of its staff due to the recent cryptocurrency market decline, according to a post published Dec. 11.

Founded in 2017 in Switzerland, Status is an open source Ethereum-based mobile app that enables its users to chat, transact, and access decentralized applications (DApps).

In the announcement, the startup’s co-founder Jarrad Hope said that Status is “much larger than we can sustain” in the environment of the declining market, wherein the company was not prepared for scenarios of ETH dropping over 80 percent since August.

“This was compounded by not having solid banking partners due to the difficulty in opening banking accounts for crypto projects until Q2 of this year, and have been hedging since then accordingly,” the announcement further reads.

According to Status, 25 percent of its staff is “non-essential” to the company’s long-term growth projects, and are therefore being laid off. Remaining employees have been asked to take a paycut and will purportedly be given a sum of Status’ native virtual currency SNT “to help offset the cut and align with the network’s success.”

In order to set up a “runway measured in years,” Status is going to tap into its remaining fiat money and “large” ETH holdings. The startup has also asked remaining employees to actively contribute to the development of its two priority projects, which are to “deliver on white paper promises” and get the app to a “usable state.”

In November, another cryptocurrency-based startup, Steemit, laid off more than 70 percent of its staff due to the cryptocurrency market crash, and began a structural reorganization. The recent drop in crypto markets purportedly resulted in a decrease in fiat currency returns from the company’s automated STEEM token sales. Additionally, the cost of running Steem’s nodes has increased.

The crypto market experienced a harsh fall on Nov. 14, with Bitcoin (BTC) slumping from its average trading price of around $6,400 to as low as $5,506. This week, the leading coin dipped even lower, to as low as $3,199, while ETH’s lowest price point was $83.50.

At press time, SNT is the 67th largest coin by market capitalization and is trading at $0.0134, down 4.41 percent on the day. The coin’s market capitalization is nearly $47 million, and its total supply is over 6.8 billion coins, according to CoinMarketCap.

The #1 cryptocurrency could soon overtake Mastercard’s daily transfer volume, judging by the official numbers released by Mastercard. This means Bitcoin is becoming a serious rival of the leading traditional money transfer system.

According to company’s public records, Mastercard has a daily volume of $11 billion, while Bitcoin on the other hand, transfers around $8 billion per day, meaning that it moves 73% of Mastercard’s volume. While Bitcoin daily transfer is especially noteable given the current situation in the crypto markets, it may seem that the cryptocurrency is already moving amount comparable to those handled by Mastercard.

Mastercardreports that it has processed transactions worth a incredible $4.4trillion since the beginning of the year. Although there’s no such statistic accessible for Bitcoin, it’s possible to accumulate it’s daily transfers. Supposably $8 billion daily transfer volume would mean Bitcoin could have an annual volume of $3 trillion, which is a incredible number for any transfer system, especially a cryptocurrency.

Ethereum, which transfers the second-highest daily volume, processed around $600 million in the 24-hour span. That would mean it equals approximately $0.25 trillion annualy. Moreover, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash are also having a noteable amount of daily transfers, approximately $170 million and $120 million, respectively.

Despite having a far lower capacity in transactions per second, it could be speculated that all cryptocurrencies put together could rival Mastercard’s daily transfers. While Mastercards volume mostly stems from small purchases, cryptocurrency transaction could be worth millions. Although Mastercard’s main rival is Visa, which is handling 65.000 transactions per second, processes around $30 billion daily volume, that equals  roughly $11 trillion a year. Given that Bitcoin supports 7 tx/s on-chain, it would equal only 0.01% of Visa’s transaction capacity, the premier cryptocurrency still transfers around 25% of the value processed by Visa.

The University of Tokyo began offering a blockchain course at its graduate engineering school, thanks to an $800,000 donation from a consortium that includes the Ethereum Foundation and Japanese banking juggernaut Sumitomo Mitsui.

The class — called the “Blockсhain Innovation Donation Course” — was rolled out on November 1 and will run through October 2021, according to a statement by Sumitomo Mitsui.

Other corporate donors included Good Luck Three, JSS Corp., Zipper Corp., Hotlink Co., and Money Forward Inc.

Goal is to Cultivate Blockchain Entrepreneurs

The purpose of the blockchain course is to educate highly motivated, business-minded students with “outstanding talent in information mathematics” about fintech and the game-changing technology underpinning cryptocurrencies.

The University of Tokyo hopes to nurture future blockchain entrepreneurs by teaching them about decentralized networks and how to implement them socially.

Blockchain is a hot, trendy field of study right now, and many corporations are investing substantial amounts of money to promote the development and widespread adoption of blockchain.

Experts say the innovative technology could transform healthcare, banking, supply-chain management, and the entertainment industry.

Ripple Donated $50 Million To Multi-Uni Program

In June 2018, Ripple, the blockchain-based payment network, donated $50 million to 17 universities around the world to launch a partnership called the University Blockchain Research Initiative. As CCN reported, Ripple made the donations in US dollars, not cryptocurrency.

The company said interest in blockchain is soaring as more people are discovering the vast potential of distributed ledger technology, including facilitating speedier cross-border payments.

In April 2018, Ripple also invested $25 million of its XRP cryptocurrency into Blockchain Capital Parallel IV, a $150 million fund that will invest in blockchain ventures.

Even “Old Money” like the Rockefeller family is investing in blockchain startups, as CCN reported.

Many top business schools around the world, including Wharton and Stanford, have expanded their MBA course offerings to include classes on bitcoin and blockchain, as CCN reported.

According to a recent Coinbase study, almost half of the world’s top universities now offer at least one cryptocurrency-related class.

Top Business Schools Add Crypto Classes

Kevin Werbach, a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, is currently teaching a class this semester called “Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, and Distributed Ledger Technology.”

“We’re at the point where there’s a critical mass to teach this domain,” Werbach told CNBC. “There will be a real phenomenon in business for the foreseeable future. And five years down the road, there won’t be too many major business schools that don’t offer similar classes.”

Similarly, John Jacobs — executive director of the Georgetown University Business School — said he has been inundated with calls from corporate recruiters asking for applicants who understand blockchain technology.

“Any world-class program is going to have to equip students in this field to compete,” Jacobs said. “It’s everywhere we turn around.”

Ethereum Smart contract and dApp developer Level K has uncovered the existence of a vulnerability within the Ethereum framework that potentially allows bad actors to mint large amounts of GasToken when receiving ETH.

In a blogpost published on November 21, the company revealed that the weakness has been flagged to most at-risk exchanges who have since effected software patches to contain the threat.

Potential GasToken Security Weakness

The vulnerability arises when ETH is sent to an address, which is then able to carry out arbitrary computations that the transaction originator pays for, which comes with a risk of ‘griefing’ – an action by a bad-faith actor designed to cause damage to network users. In theory, an attacker would be able to make a transaction originator such as an exchange pay for an arbitrary amount of computation if the exchange has no protections like gas limits in place.

By minting vast amounts of GasToken while receiving ETH, it would thus be possible at least in theory for such a griefing attack to become profitable to a bad actor.

What is more, the risk is not limited to ETH, but also includes all Ethereum-based tokens such as those built on ERC-721 and ERC-20 standards. In the course of carrying out contract calls to effect transfers, exchanges that do not set a gas limit for transactions with these tokens can end up paying for vast amounts of computation and suffering  similar fate.

An excerpt from material published by Level K explaining the threat using a hypothetical case study reads as follows:

“In the simplest exploit scenario, Alice runs an exchange, which Bob wants to harm. Bob can initiate withdrawals to a contract address he controls with a computationally intensive fallback function. If Alice has neglected to set a reasonable gas limit, she will pay transaction fees out of her hot wallet. Given enough transactions, Bob can drain Alice’s funds. If Alice fails to enforce Know Your Customer (KYC) policies, Bob can create numerous accounts to circumvent single-account withdrawal limits. In addition, if Bob also wants to make a profit, he can mint GasToken in his fallback function, and make money while causing Alice’s wallet to drain.”

According to Level K, exchanges potentially affected by the vulnerability were notified privately on November 13, and because it was not possible to say exactly which ones had no protections in place, this notification was sent to as many exchanges as possible, all of whom have now implemented patches to fix the problem.

Level K has also published further information and a complete rundown of the threat and the actions taken to contain it here.
