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.

Weddings are stress factories for many a bride and groom

Apr 25, 2018

NEW YORK — Weddings are festive, but they're often mega-stressful for bride and groom. Multiply that by about a million and it's a wonder Meghan Markle is still upright as her May 19 royal nuptials crawl ever closer. Her prince, Harry, was born into "The Firm," but Markle is a newbie, so how does a high-profile bride like herself manage all that wedding pressure? She can approach her big day like the commoner she remains for the moment and seize some time for herself while she still can. Los Angeles psychologist Antonia Hall suggests brides block out 10- to 15-minute...

Apr 25, 2018

An independent review of corruption in tennis found that the sport "faces a serious integrity problem" at its lower levels — a "tsunami," according to one person interviewed — but did not determine there are widespread problems at ATP, WTA and Grand Slam tournaments. The report released Wednesday showed no cover-up by tennis' governing bodies of improper betting or match-fixing, although there were "errors made and opportunities missed," Adam Lewis, a member of the three-lawyer review panel, said at a news conference in London. Recommendations included putting an end to the International Tennis Federation's sale of official live scoring data...

Egypt's parliament passes law to fine aggressive touts

Apr 25, 2018

CAIRO — In efforts to revive its tourism sector, Egypt passed a bill this week imposing fines on overly aggressive touts. The law approved this week could see anyone found pestering tourists "with the intention of begging or promoting, offering or selling a good or service" fined up to 10,000 Egyptian pounds ($567). The legislation has still to be ratified by Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. The news has already raised concerns among Egyptians working in the area of the famed pyramids at Giza, offering souvenirs, carriage or camel rides. Ahmed, one of the workers, said the bill will impact the...
