0Chain’s dStorage to provide access to Hyperledger Fabric data through Oracle

0Chain, a Gold level member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN), today announced it will use the Oracle blockchain to provide Hyperledger Fabric customers a solution to use 0Chain dStorage as a trusted party for file-based transactions that require data validation from endorsers.

The concept is to have enterprises upload the data to dStorage and submit a transaction to the Fabric with the document hash, and have it verified by endorsers retrieving the data directly from dStorage or through a 3rd party distributed verifier.

Use-Cases

There are several use cases for multi-party transactions involving documents in various verticals. One example is in healthcare where a medical claim document shared between patient, hospital, doctor, lab, and insurer need to be secured to prevent fraudulent activity.

Other verticals such as supply chain, logistics, manufacturing, banking, real estate, agriculture, identity, voting, insurance, cross-border payment, clearinghouse, licensing & IP, energy trading, certificates, deeds, ad, registry, telecom, forensics, and government industries could all use the Fabric with dStorage for an end-to-end secure transaction platform.

“The 0Chain dStorage platform protects enterprises from data breaches and provides a single source of truth for multi-party transactions to reduce costs associated with fraud, liability, and dispute. Oracle and 0Chain are at the forefront of innovation and with this relationship, customers can migrate their entire set of existing applications to the blockchain seamlessly.”

SHARED INTEL: How digital certificates could supply secure identities for enterprise blockchains

Blockchain gave rise to Bitcoin. But blockchain is much more than just the mechanism behind the cryptocurrency speculation mania.

Related:The case for ‘zero trust’

There’s no disputing that blockchain technology holds the potential to massively disrupt business, politics and culture over the next couple of decades, much the way the Internet dramatically altered the world over the first two decades of this century.

Evidence continues to mount that blockchain technology holds the potential to democratize commerce on a global scale, while at the same time vastly improving privacy and security in the digital age. I had a terrific conversation about this with Avesta Hojjati, head of research and development at DigiCert, the world’s leading provider of digital certificates. DigiCert recently thrust itself into the security part of the equation by signing on as a contributor to Hyperledger, the open source blockchain collaborative effort hosted by The Linux Foundation.

Hojjati outlined how digital certificates – and the long-establish public key infrastructure (PKI) encryption and authentication framework — could be the very thing to validate the identities of both companies and individuals in a much more granular way, something that will be needed as blockchain systems take root. For a drill down on our discussion, give a listen to the accompanying podcast. Here are key takeaways:

Blockchain basics

A blockchain is nothing more than a distributed database. It functions as a shared ledger between people, such as holders of Bitcoin, but it can also be a shared ledger between companies, or between people and organizations. The ledger can keep track of anything you’d like. A live copy of the ledger is stored on the computers of the users, and advanced cryptography makes it so that the history of past ledger entries can never be altered.

In the case of Bitcoin this ledger is publicly open, and a transparent view of historical entries is always accessible to one and all. In a corporate-backed blockchain, this view of the ledger can be closed off, and made open only on a permissioned basis. In either case, the ledger data gets distributed across many machines, boosting the efficiency and flexibility of transactions in a way that is very accurate, and very difficult to maliciously alter.

With Hyperledger, Linux aims to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies on a commercially supportable, open source basis, much the way the open-source Linux operating system became commercially viable in the early part of this century.

Disintermediation

One intrinsic characteristic of blockchain systems is that they make it feasible for any two parties participating on the blockchain to transact with each other without a middleman. Minus the middleman and disintermediation become possible.

This is what gets folks like technologist Andreas Antonopoulos so hopped up about the blockchain’s potential to drastically change the way the world operates, essentially by enabling individuals to granularly control and monetize their digital footprints — and even their civic and artistic contributions.

Another expert who sees blockchain, combined with the Internet of Things, ushering in a new era is economist and social theorist Jeremy Rifkin. “The new platform is really radical,” Rifkin says in his talk, The Third Industrial Revolution: A Radical New Sharing Economy, which has 3.5 million views on YouTube.“This third industrial revolution platform is designed to be distributed, not centralized. It works best when it’s collaborative, open and transparent, rather than closed and proprietary.”

Linux redux

Linux has been down this road before. Back in the 1990s, Linux was a quirky open-source operating system; it functioned mainly as a techie’s alternative to being locked into using a proprietary Windows or Mac OS machine. Then IBM, RedHat, SuSE and others saw an opportunity and arose as heavyweight corporate backers of Linux OS; they became suppliers of commercially viable Linux servers and desktops. I wrote this USA TODAY cover story in 2003 about how IBM Linux stole the city of Munich from Microsoft, ruining Steve Ballmer’s skiing holiday.

Fast forward to today and guess who’s behind Linux Hyperledger? IBM, Intel, Cisco, American Express, Deutsche Bank and Baidu head an imposing list of big corporate sponsors. The group’s flagship project is Hyperledger fabric, a private blockchain framework already being deployed in enterprise settings.

Hojjati

“You can think of Hyperledger fabric as a car chassis that’s been welded, painted and maybe has wheels on it,” Hojjati told me. “You still need to add an engine and a number of different things to make it fully functional. But you’re able to work with something that’s very easy to maintain and deploy.”

Early adopters are trial-running Hyperledger blockchains in trade financing, in education and training programs and in supply chains for certain vertical industries. These early use cases revolve around increasing transparency and creating more granular audit trails. It’s an obvious fit for making supply chains more efficient, transparent and auditable. Blockchain ledgers are gaining traction in vertical industries like real estate, Big Pharma and food production and retailing, Wal-Mart being a pioneer of the latter.

In the case of open blockchains – Bitcoin being the prime example – transparency is complete, and so is anonymity. Anyone who can meet the protocols and consensus rules of the road is free to participate without providing any personally identifiable information.

Corporate-backed blockchains will never go that far, of course. That said, in order to tap the power of blockchains, and enable more granular, auditable interactions across a nimble blockchain, enterprises can no longer expect to hoover in everything there is to know about each consumer out there.

Authenticating identities

Authenticated identities are necessary in order for enterprises and government agencies to securely deliver services to consumers and work with global partners. But why do they need home addresses, gender, birthdates, political affiliations or online behavior profiles? Regulators across the U.S., Canada and Europe already are pushing back against the over collection and insecure storage of personal data.

What’s more, enterprises risk losing out to the open blockchain initiatives, championed by thought leaders like Anatopolous and Rifkin. These are projects that tend to leverage privacy preservation and that foster the elimination of corporate middlemen.

Cue digital certificates and PKI. “In the Hyperledger scenario, there is a requirement for every single node in the blockchain to be authenticated and have an identity,” Hojjati told me. “This is where public key infrastructure becomes extremely handy. We’re working on a specific public key infrastructure for Hyperledger fabric that allows entities and enterprises to be validated, and consequently receive an identity based on using a digital certificate.”

There is no reason why individuals, too, couldn’t leverage personal digital certificates for specific types of enterprise blockchain-enabled services, such as verifying the pedigree of organic fruit sitting on the shelf of the local Wal-Mart.

“If you’re an individual and you would like to interact with somebody else, you’d be able to use digital certificates to gives yourself protection on top of your identity, instead of actually revealing your true identity, in order to interact with others,” Hojjati says.

Digital certificates and PKI have been around for decades. They haven’t always performed flawlessly. Yet the fact that this encryption and identity validation technology has been hardened under fire and continues to secure ecommerce says something. It’s going to be instructive to see what DigiCert ends up contributing to blockchains. I’ll keep these conversations going. Talk more soon.

Ethereum [ETH] – ConsenSys Announces Codefi Decentralized Finance Suite During Ethereal …

Ethereum [ETH] – ConsenSys Announces Codefi Decentralized Finance Suite During Ethereal Summit

Major Ethereum development studio ConsenSys will be launching a new product suite for commercial applications specifically in the decentralized finance field called Codefi. Lex Sokolin, ConsenSys’s global lead in Fintech spoke during the Ethereal Summit held in Tel Aviv in Israel over the weekend.

According to Sokolin, the new suite will be used specifically to “help institutions build on top of blockchains and emerging DeFi networks and take these solutions not to thousands but to billions of people that can benefit from them today,” he said on Sunday. ConsenSys hopes that Codefi will become “the blockchain operating system for commerce and finance.”

Sokolin went as far as comparing the new suite with Stripe and Twilio during a press conference at the summit. Stripe is a payments applications. It seems that ConsenSys is aiming to become a software developer in the payments niche and specifically targeting enterprise clients.

“As ConsenSys has matured, it’s finding its business model,” Sokolin said. “This is us putting a flag in the ground about what we want to be doing in the market.”

The Codefi product suite will be made of four parts: Payments, payment networks, data and analytics, and digital assets that represent equities, real estate, and bonds. ConsenSys is already serving clients in the commercial applications niche utilizing blockchain technology. For instance, through its KomGo SA project, the company is working with several energy companies that are seeking secure and reliable means to transfer know your customer data over the blockchain.

Not only this but also ConsenSys recently joined the Hyperledger Consortium in which it will help develop enterprise-grade applications and collaborate on projects that are built on the Ethereum blockchain. ConsenSys’ co-creator Joseph Lubin was appointed to the governance board of the Hyperledger board as part of the deal to join the consortium.

ConsenSys is already supporting the development of DeFi applications such as Infura and BlockApps. Codefi will, however, be an in-house project developed specifically by ConsenSys engineers meaning that the revenues from the new suite will be fully absorbed by ConsenSys. Sokolin explained that the development of Codefi stemmed from the market gap that ConsenSys noticed between blockchain startups’ products and enterprise clients’ needs.

“There have been many spokes [startups] and projects that have tried to build things, they did the pioneering work. ConsenSys has learnings from them,” he said.

Blockchain Standards Are Highly Fragmented; No More Than Four Standards Will Dominate the …

GartnerSource: Google Images

Lack of interoperability standards will prevent pervasive blockchain deployment across financial services ecosystems for at least three years, according to Gartner, Inc.

“Blockchain standards for financial services companies are currently fragmented and immature,” said Fabio Chesini, senior research director at Gartner. “We are three to five years until standards mature and settle.”

During Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo, which is taking place in Cape Town through Wednesday, Gartner analysts have been discussing how business and IT leaders can create value from blockchain.

Standards are critical for financial services entities because they are constantly moving assets between clients, partners and other institutions. Today, bank CIOs can choose from numerous blockchains, available from either enterprise-grade approaches such as Corda, Hyperledger, and Digital Asset, or the many public blockchain standards like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, EOS, and Tezos. They are all trying to become the de facto state machine for value exchange and digital asset representation, smart contracts and decentralized applications. This indicates the fragmentation of the various standards.

“Bank CIOs must be mindful of this nascent and fragmented state of blockchain standards,” said Mr. Chesini. “It is unlikely there will be a single de facto standard like in the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model, at all levels. Given how new and fragmented the state of blockchain standards is, we expect no more than four standards to lead the market in the next three to five years.”

In addition to standards, Mr. Chesini warned financial services CIOs of three additional impediments when deploying blockchain projects: governance, integration and interoperability.

Governance

Blockchain governance is important because it regulates activities occurring across the ecosystem and provides legal assurances that their arbitrary decisions will not be made as an abuse of power against other participants.

“Governance specifies how value is exchanged, but also how those data exchanges are recognised and recorded, as well as who has access to them and who can exchange value with whom,” said Mr. Chesini.

“Governance and management of private and permissioned blockchains in any form, including consortia, will remain centralised and hierarchical during the next three to five years, making blockchain governance in financial services a key impediment for the same period,” said Mr. Chesini.

Integration

To achieve the true potential of blockchain, implementations must be seamlessly integrated with already installed software solutions. However, major software and SaaS providers aren’t offering blockchain solutions as add-on features to their enterprise solutions. As a result, financial services organisations are paying a high cost for continuously maintaining and “reintegrating” blockchain implementations into their new and existing enterprise software solutions.

In the next two to three years, Gartner analysts expect all major ERP and CRM players to offer blockchain capabilities as an add-on feature for their software and SaaS products. Software suppliers, meanwhile, will integrate and upgrade their chosen blockchain versions and ensure compatibility with their own new software releases.

“These efforts will dramatically reduce the cost of deploying blockchain projects across the financial services organisations and their supply chains,” said Mr. Chesini. “In the meantime, the full-lifetime costs of integrating a blockchain solution in an organisation will be millions of dollars in consulting fees, reengineering, development and upgrades. These high costs drastically slow the widespread integration of blockchain initiatives.”

Interoperability

Bitcoin, R3, Ethereum, Hyperledger and others often use differing implementations, data formats, data interchange and directories making interoperability among different blockchains difficult across organisations.

“As financial services companies constantly move financial instruments and assets to other financial services companies and partners, cross-industry interoperability standards are, and will be, critical,” said Mr. Chesini. “Today, they are looking to replace current banking vehicles for payments like Western Union, or international money transfers like SWIFT, with blockchain-based platforms.”

Fixing these types of data exchange standards will enable numerous blockchains to coexist and to share their ledgers, as necessary. However, as blockchains are a moving target and keep evolving, interoperability solutions are still three to five years away.

    Russia’s Largest Bank Completes $15 Million Debt Purchase Via Hyperledger Blockchain

    Using the Hyperledger Blockckhain, Russia’s Sberbank has successfully bought around $15 million worth of accounts as receivable from Singaporean commodity trading firm, Trafigura. According to a spokesperson for the largest bank in Russia, the purchase was completed using Hyperledger Fabric’s private collections feature, which allows some certain information remain private even with a network which has other members.

    Furthermore, the Sberbank-driven framework through which the transaction was carried was done using smart contracts already programmed with the Scala general purpose language. The software is also powered by the Aurelia framework as well as SberCloud’s cloud service developed and deployed by Sberbank itself. The company boasts that it only takes one second to complete a full block of transactions on its platform.

    The conclusion of the transaction was done a few days ago at the Eastern Economic Forum in Russia’s Vladivostok Pacific port city. Speaking on the transaction, Sberbank’s first deputy chairman, Alexander Vedyakhin, said that the system significantly reduced the amount of required time to complete the transaction by making the exchange of documents a lot more seamless. Vedyakhin said:

    “Our blockchain pilot project records every step of the transaction: request for purchase of receivables, application processing and its approval with the bank, issuing the bank’s offer, confirmation of terms by Trafigura, and settlement of the transaction.”

    Because of the success of this transaction, both Trafigura and Sberbank are currently making plans to find more ways through which blockchain technology can significantly improve financial transactions and processes worldwide.
