I wonder if it will take off since its technology is patented.

Technology-wise, claims are big. But things must be proven first… (Leemon always says its mathematically proven, but well… who knows… that are only claims). I did not hear of any big use case in existence yet. Behind the scenes, however, within the industry, the variety of different blockchains and distributed systems on the market is expanding. The consensus mechanisms now being used can broadly be grouped into 3 different categories: Proof of Work Blockchains (Bitcoin, Ethereum etc. ), Leader-based Systems (Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, Quorum etc. ), and Economy-based (Casper, EOS etc. ), also known as Proof of Stake. CULedger will now also use the Hedera hashgraph public ledger to enable cross-border payments across the globe. Many people have proposed the use of existing blockchains for identity applications. However, there are several issues with the technology that are still being resolved. Hedera’s Founder, Leemon Baird, thinks his technology has an alternative approach. Other aspects of government and public services may provide further use cases for distributed ledgers. Healthcare is one area being disrupted by the technology in a variety of ways – especially by reducing the enormous amounts of paperwork and bureaucracy created by healthcare system data. Advances in distributed ledger technology can eliminate this paperwork while automating compliance reporting. Intiva Health’s platform ensures that licensed medical professionals can store and control access to credentialing documents in one place. Intiva recently said that it is building the next generation of its technology on top of the hashgraph distributed ledger technology. This could lead to the healthcare industry’s first dedicated careers platform which would handle the ongoing credentialing of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. The hashgraph platform was apparently chosen because it was viewed as being the only one that could meet the stringent security requirements for personal data required by the healthcare sector. But uses cases are not limited to the public sector. They also extend to other walks of life, including the creative industries. His aim is to cut out the middleman and secure direct payment for artists via a cryptocurrency wallet. Budding artists will be able to post their music and host live performances on the site, where fans can watch and engage with them. Artbit says it will also use some form of gamification and augmented reality. There will be a cryptocurrency involved, but it is not providing further details of the ICO just yet. Artbit is aimed at all sorts of creators, not just musicians. People like Shepard Fairey, the artist perhaps best known for his HOPE poster depicting Barack Obama, who is another famous adviser to the project. And just to finish by blowing your mind, what happens when next-generation blockchains combine or converge with artificial intelligence? In New York, a company called MZ (formerly Machine Zone) announced it is using the Hedera. What does that mean? It merely combines decentralized computing with access to the Internet of Things everywhere always in real time! CEO Mance Harmon described the new Hedera logo this week as the H-bar. The future of distributed consensus mechanisms just got even more interesting. Lots of criticism of hashgraph since it’s closed source . I’ve got to do more research. I did download their SDK which includes a cryptocurrency example, so that makes me think that a crypto release is imminent, but I dunno. My thoughts right now are to spread myself across several different techs! Well, it should since that’s also the purpose of blockchain. Image credit: Swirlds However, Hashgraph utilizes a unique consensus algorithm with “Gossip to Gossip” and “Virtual Voting” protocols. The whitepaper describes Hashgraph as “state machines with guaranteed Byzantine fault tolerance”, and claims to be faster, fairer, and more secure than existing consensus mechanisms. Thus, Hashgraph tackles the scalability, efficiency, and security issues faced by blockchain that restricts mainstream adoption. Sound too good to be true? Well, read on to form your own opinion. The platform is lighting fast, secure, fair, and requires very little computational power to maintain the network. It opens the door for anyone to run a node, use the service, and develop apps on the platform, without the need of licenses. However, Swirls did decide to patent the hashgraph technology, to prevent people from using their tech to create competing ledgers. In some instances, they may grant licenses for others to create private permissioned ledgers, if they deem the purpose legitimate. Hedera is built on top of the permissioned hashgraph consensus platform that was used for enterprise applications. Image credit: Hedera Hashgraph Whitepaper Hashgraph claims to be lightning fast and limited only by network bandwidth, meaning nodes are competing in speed to decide which transaction gets processed first. It enables “hundreds of thousands of transactions per second” with low latency, which means consensus would be reached in seconds.

  • Fair ordering: This is achieved by virtue of the fair timestamp assignment process for transactions.

When the test was constrained to only one continent (1 region), the speed increased to 500,000 tps at approximately the same latency.

In contrast, the Bitcoin network can only handle 7 transactions per second (tps), whereas Visa averages around 2,000 tps. These network capacities pale in comparison to Hashgraph’s speed. Hashgraph consensus algorithm, asynchronous Byzantine fault tolerance (aBFT), claims to be the gold standard of security compared to other options. In a nutshell, aBFT prevents members from stopping community consensus or changing the records after consensus is reached. It allows the network to tolerate any number of faulty nodes given that fewer than 13 of the nodes are attackers. Once consensus has been reached, the community knows it in real-time and is assured that the consensus cannot be compromised. Thus, aBFT provides resiliency to DDoS attacks, firewalls, and malicious nodes even if some of the computers in the network shut down. Also, it is more secure than blockchain because it provides a sense of finality when consensus is reached, instead of gaining confidence over time. Fairness is described in three aspects: According to the white paper, there are two governance models in Hedera Hashgraph: Permissioned Governance Model with Open Consensus. Council Government Model: the distributed governing body that upholds the principles of decentralization, stability, and trustworthiness. The council consists of up to 39 reputable organizations across 5 continents, whose responsibility is to overlook the operation of the public platform. It is similar to the Board of Directors of a public company. This also prevents the consolidation of power, meaning no single member (or group) can have too much control over the body. Consensus Model: the process allows anyone who wants to run a node to join the network, help maintain consensus, and be rewarded for their services. The team expects the number of nodes to grow rather quickly, eventually having millions of nodes in the network. Hedera Hashgraph claims to keep the platform stable using technical and legal controls to handle forking. This means that there will be no competing platforms to create confusion and uncertainty in the marketplace. Technical controls ensure two capabilities: First, “the software client can validate the pedigree of the Hedera hashgraph prior to use through a shared state mechanism”. A state consists of all the files stored, crypto balances, and smart contract execution results. A shared state ensures that nodes give verifiable information that represents the consensus state of the full network and no bad actor can compromise it. It also prevents a node from forking the original hashgraph, making changes and pushing it to the network as valid. Second, it ensures that any software changes made by the Hedera governing body are specified in the network, automatically updated and guaranteed that they are legit. Anyone with invalid software will not be able to modify the hashgraph. Legal controls, on the other hand, ensure no fork happens to create competing platforms or cryptos against Hedera Hashgraph. Although the codebase is open-source, updates can only be made by Hedera through the consent of the Governing Council. Since the hashgraph technology is patented, teams who want to create a permissioned ledger based on the tech are required to obtain a license. However, no license is required for apps that run on Hedera network and associated native tokens. Hedera Hashgraph’s consensus algorithm is based on the gossip protocol and virtual voting. Hashgraph consensus uses a gossip protocol to spread information among a network of computers (nodes) quickly and efficiently. It allows a node (Alice) to randomly choose and exchange all information she knows so far with another node (Bob) in the network. This process is repeated across the network and increases in speed exponentially until everyone in the community is aware of the given information. Gossip History (Hedera Hashgraph Whitepaper) Figure 1 describes the gossip history as a directed graph which represents the actual data structure. Each event (the circle) records the fact that Alice has performed a gossip sync by sharing everything she knows to Bob. An event contains a set of the transaction, the hashes of the two events below itself, a digital signature of its creator, and a timespan. This process of connecting events repeats continuously, growing the graph upwards forever. Instead of gossiping a transaction alone, the gossip protocol allows “gossip about gossip,” meaning historical communication is “gossiped” as well. In this case, members who have a slightly different version of new events near the top can quickly converge by continuously gossiping with each other. Eventually, all members will share exactly the same events lower down the hashgraph. This protocol helps optimize the communication process, ensure consistency, and ensure the ability to scale the network. Based on the concept of voting, Hashgraph uses a more sophisticated mechanism called virtual voting which achieves strong guarantees more efficiently. It enables the network to run a voting algorithm at scale without actually sending voting messages. As explained above, the “gossip protocol” allows members to have a copy of the hashgraph, meaning the full picture and history of all transactions are shared among nodes. Therefore, it allows them to “calculate a total order on the events according to any deterministic function of that hashgraph” to get the same answers. Each node can then reach an agreement on the validity of the transaction if it knows that the majority of the network witnessed that transaction happening at that particular time. The algorithm has several benefits such as providing greater transparency and honesty among the nodes while using very little bandwidth. Hashgraph technology is fundamentally different from blockchain in many ways. This table provides some examples. Platform Token and Utility Hedera Hashgraph has its own native cryptocurrency, which is a utility token used as fuel for the ecosystem. There are three associated fees on the platform that token holders need to pay, including transaction fees, node fees, and service fees for access to distributed apps. Hedera Hashgraph platform also uses Proof of Stake (PoS) which is proxy staking instead of delegated PoS.

  • Cryptocurrency for micro-transactions
  • Distributed file-storage system
  • Solidity smart contracts backed by Ethereum Virtual Machine

Token holders can stake their cryptocurrency to a running node and be rewarded accordingly.

The team is organizing a pre-sale for Hedera associated token through the SAFT framework, which is restricted to accredited investors (both U.S and international). No further information about the date and time has been released so far. Hedera has a stellar team of highly experienced professionals with in-depth knowledge and expertise in multiple spaces from business, tech to the government. Image credit: Hedera Hashgraph Website The team is led by Dr. Leemon Baird and Mance Harmon. Baird is the inventor of the Hashgraph algorithm. He has 20+ years of tech and start-up experience and has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon. Harmon is also a seasoned executive with extensive leadership experience in both government agencies and tech startups. Both co-founders have been working together for over 2 decades. They founded two other tech startups together before Swirlds Inc. and Hedera. The advisor team also include some well-known influencers in the blockchain and tech space. According to the website, hashgraph technology has been used by several private enterprises in healthcare, games, finance, entertainment, and government. It opens the door for some exciting DLT applications to be developed, such as microtransactions, online collaboration, auctions, or distributed identity directories. It is interesting insofar that the open consensus allows anyone to participate in the network and develop apps using its technology without licenses. However, it is also somewhat centralized since Hashgraph is patented. Moreover, even though it claims to resolve the scalability issues, Hashgraph only demonstrates the solution to scale the number of transactions, which is only one part of the puzzle. A question still remains as to whether it can scale to the number of nodes in the network, which is a small number at the moment. It is too soon to draw a conclusion, but I for one am excited to see its future potential.

Well, we finally got the news thanks to Jeff Kauflin at Forbes – in his great article about Hashgraph, minutes ago. Is it an investment? What’s the price? How many altcoins will they “create?” We’ve been hearing about Hashgraph over these past months, some of us a bit longer. It’s a competitor to bitcoin and the blockchain and promises far faster transaction times and/or volume, without using a blockchain. It’s called a DAG or directed acyclic graph. You can read more about on their new website here. The upshot is that this system will be governed by a “global governing council” from blue chip companies – 39 in all. Currently, these companies are not named. Care to speculate? It also remains to be seen how the new Hedera Hashgraph will cooperate with governments to provide them “with the oversight necessary” and what that entails. To state that the process is decentralized, does not wash when it is compared to things like bitcoin. On the other hand, it may give Ripple and similar – a run for the money. June 2, 2018: Update New information is slowly leaking out that Hashgraph may have critical flaws and is highly centralized. Thus far the sources for this information are iffy. Again, this is about the only bad news I’ve discovered. Like Loading… You can learn about Hashgraph Way more details in the above videos. In short, they’re further along than iota or nano at this point, but it’ll be a great race! Also, agreed on the open source part. In a demo tonight that was apparently live-streamed by over 80,000 viewers, Hashgraph showed off their new shiny technology that promises to revolutionize the tech that Bitcoin launched in 2008. Of course, the  network will have a bespoke utility token that grants holders access to distributed applications on the platform. Hashgraph expects the token to act as a unit of value to motivate use and governance of the platform. Beyond the Apple-esque presentation about the new spin on DLT, perhaps the best moment of the entire pitch was the Satori demo near the end. The concept is awe inspiring but also harkens to retro thoughts of SkyNet. I wonder if Satori will become self-aware? Regardless, Hashgraph is stepping things up and moving things towards a distributed technology that can work in the real world, at scale with room to grow. More to follow.

I have not participated in a “SAFT presale” before but it seems like that it is just a commitment, of willingness to purchase, which would give a speculative value?

but it still says that the presale is only for accredited investors… I understand why people are hating. Hedera Hashgraph is the platform for implementing a new form of distributed consensus, it’s the new Ethereum only better. The project has already attracted $ 18 million and opened access to the test network, however, only for the creators and members of the Council. Hashgraph promises us a high transaction speed, low costs and increased  security level. Maybe all of this will happen, but definitely not now. Hedera Hashgraph has only Leemon Baird and the Council of 39 mythical companies so far (the project does not disclose the names). See Hedera’s promises in our review._________________________ Investment attractiveness score has been increased from 5.1 to 5.3 due to partnership with Yoti.

CO-FOUNDER, CTO, & CHIEF SCIENTIST Mance Harmon CO-FOUNDER & CEO Tom Trowbridge PRESIDENT Jordan Fried VICE-PRESIDENT, GLOBAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT Natalie Grunfeld Furman GENERAL COUNSEL Ken Anderson Warren Buffet would agree that is how you prove its value, pointing out what does bitcoin actually do ? yes we didnt focus on using it enough. Hashgraph looks like the next revolution and solving the blockchain ineffiency . I guess for now profit will have to be in how you apply this technology, so instead of throwing money at something , we have to use our brains and actually do something..why not get a license?- use the technology, like they invite you to do. - and if you really are a crypto supporter create a ICO/ currency for an app that can intragrate with bitcoin, if you really think that is the way forward. In a press release on Tuesday, Hedera introduced an alternative: a simple, powerful platform with robust API support to make it easy for developers to build global distributed applications. “We need a more trusted, secure and equitable online world,” said Leemon Baird, inventor of the hashgraph algorithm, in a statement. One of the biggest issues with the current state of blockchain development, according to Hedera, has been the absence of true decentralization in public distributed ledgers. Hedera said it will address these concerns by separating governance from consensus. Hedera’s vision entails enabling anyone to run a node without having to pay for a mining rig or large amounts of electricity. It aims to use a combination of technical and legal controls to give the governing council mechanisms to promote stability and ensure the network will never fork. Hedera also intends to work with governments to bring the same level of security to public ledgers that is currently present in the financial system. Revealing its news alongside Hedera’s announcement, leading application and game developer MZ said it will build distributed applications on top of hashgraph. “Our mission is to enable the next generation of many-to-many applications,” said Gabe Leydon, CEO of MZ, in a statement. “By building on top of Hedera hashgraph, our applications will be able to be deployed in a peer-to-peer environment, with complete fairness, transparency and visibility. Their MGT token is offered at a modest minimum purchase of just 800 tokens (for 0.1 ETH), so virtually anyone can access this innovative app once it goes live. The Dublin Tech Summit is the main IT event in our country with over 10,000 people attending. While an ICO is an effective tool to collect funds, it is also a great way to give a boost to the community.

In addition, Mingo plans to build a plugin economy on its platform. Merchants and service providers from a wide variety of industries will be able to use plugins to sell their goods and services to the Mingo community. Mingo also solves the issue of micropayments (something which is currently too costly to do using conventional payment methods). MingoCoin will be the in-app currency – an easy-to-use, widely accepted token in the Mingo Plugin Economy. Mingo users will only have to hold one denomination of token to pay for products and services in the Mingo ecosystem. MingoCoins will be held and can be transferred among users through the built-in MingoWallet. The MingoPlay plugin will allow users to challenge each other in skill-based games or participate in tournaments with the ability to win MingoCoins in the process. Mingo is currently in negotiations with global mobile gaming developers. This will make Mingo among of the early adaptors of Hedera Hashgraph technology, which aims to disrupt the entire blockchain industry. Over the past month, the Mingo team has been conducting a private sale of their project, having found support from investors in North America, Europe, and Asia. Mingo aims to collect up to 45,000 ETH as its hard cap, with an 8,000 ETH soft cap. During the Pre-ICO in September 2017 over 4,200 ETH was collected, which already puts Mingo at over 50% of their minimum goal. The ICO will run until May 30. ICO participants will receive MingoCoin (XMC) in exchange for their MGT tokens. MGT is an ERC-20 compliant token contract that will be issued on the Ethereum public blockchain. The contract will be developed prior to the completion of the ICO and will be available for public review.

Hashgraph refers to a distributed consensus algorithm and Hedera is the distributed ledger that will implement the hashgraph technology. It is a distributed ledger platform similar to Ether that can run DApps and support smart contracts What is Hedera’s technology? Token utility There is no information about the native Hedera token in the whitepaper. The assumption is that it will act in much the same way as Ether. It will be used as a payment fee for transactions, for staking, and be provided as a reward for those who run nodes. He has co-founded several startups, including two identity-related startups, both of which were acquired. Hype Hype for Hashgraph is through the roof. Many ICO syndicates tried to get allocations but failed. The private sale was totally oversubscribed. The project has aroused significant interest from institutional investors. Risks Token metrics still have not been publicised and it is unclear how much money is being raised or how the tokens will be allocated. However, online rumors suggest the token metrics are poor. There is no information in the whitepaper about external partnerships or business plans. Despite this lack of information in the whitepaper, I am sure that this project already has significant outside involvement, I just wish they would detail some of it. The team has made statements indicating that the project is currently in testing, however, there is no roadmap or clarity on when main-net will launch. However, the token metrics look pretty bad and there is no information about business plans or release timing. This will not a short-term flip. Long term: there is greater potential in the long term for Hedera, however success for coin-holders is totally dependent on mass-adoption from multiple projects. If there is little uptake, this won’t do well. Conclusion: For long-term holders, this is a great opportunity. The technology and business interest are great and hype is astonishing. For those who are patient, it doesn’t get any better than Hedera Hashgraph. You Are Being redirected.

Une autre caractéristique unique est le recrutement de 39 sociétés provenant de différents domaines industriels (restées volontairement anonymes), qui servent de conseil de gouvernance mondial.

Il y a déjà plus de 239 ambassadeurs (investisseurs) à ce jour, pour un total de plus de 18M$ de fonds récoltés. Le code sera disponible en open-source, mais impossible à “forker” (se posera donc la question de vérifier la pleine véracité du code dans ce contexte). Il sera agrémenté de smart contracts et compatible avec le language Solidity d’Ethereum. A suivre donc… P.S : le co-fondateur Mance Harmon sera à Paris le 23 avril pour un Meetup (plus d’infos ici).
