Dr Kosala Yapa is based at Insight, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Data Analytics at NUI Galway. In this interview he talks about his work with Dept of Public Expenditure & Reform using blockchain to identify and solve problems in the public service.

Tell you came to be interested in blockchain.

I started my academic journey as a computer science graduate from the University of Peradeniya in Sri Lanka. Then I received scholarships to read MSc in Information Technology Security from the University of Westminster in London and a PhD in Computer Science from Dublin City University. After completing my PhD, I joined with several multinational companies and universities to work as a software engineer, lecturer, and researcher.

I am a reader of Red Hat Developer news and reports. I read the story Why Red Hat joined the Hyperledger Project in 2016 and was interested in exploring Hyperledger project. Hyperledger is an open source blockchain project for the business from IBM. This project has good documentation for a starter to read and develop prototypes. I started developing several supply chain prototypes and started understanding the strength of Blockchain concepts to build a decentralised, secure, and transparent society.

In 2018 I got an opportunity to join with a blockchain project at the National University of Ireland in Galway under the supervision of Prof John Breslin. He is very well known for high-quality research and innovation. Since then, I have been working on several blockchain projects.

You’ve looked at using Blockchain to authenticate legal documents. How did that project work?

Blockchain technology promises immutability, trust, and transparency of records and reliable access to information. In my opinion, we can use blockchain technology to revolutionise court services. For example, court orders can impose various constraints on people and organisations.

Blockchain technology can develop these constraints providing transparency and reliable access to information for the relevant parties and organisations. This is important within the EU because countries have their own court services, and people have free movement between countries.

Moreover, there are other potential blockchain applications in the court service demesne. For example, preserving the authenticity of court judgements, protecting the chain of custody, providing notary services, automating regulatory validations, protecting intellectual property, etc.

As the first step, I developed a small prototype to record court judgements on a blockchain. The Courts Service of Ireland has online details of courts related activities. I used judgements recorded on courts.ie. Currently, this prototype can record court judgements on a blockchain, view all recorded judgements, and verify the authenticity of judgements. However, I still need to expand this initial prototype for various use cases in the service.

You will be working with the Dept of Public Expenditure & Reform. What attracted you to that department?

Citizens have been calling for more transparency from governments from centuries. On the other hand, blockchain technology promises transparency, security and immutability of records, and reliable access to information. This is an ideal technology to develop public services. Estonia is a very good example as an adopter of distributed ledger technology at the governmental level.

The Irish public sector is focussing on innovation connecting with the latest technologies to enhance public sector services. Here, DPER playing a leading role and I am glad contributing them to investigate transparent and citizen-centric services. I believe this is an excellent direction to show policymakers the potential improvements to public sector services towards citizen-centric developments. This innovation-based approach will help policymakers to develop necessary future policies and legislations without unnecessary delays.

Government departments provide department-centric services. When you need assistance from many government departments, sometimes you may have to give the same information to each one separately. They still do not have inter-department trust sharing methods.

Opening a bank account is another example. You should provide identity verification, address verification, employment verification, etc., which are already available with different departments. However, blockchain technology can enable trust sharing between departments and organisations so that you may no longer need to provide the same information. Moreover, the update of data is visible to all the departments and organisations so that they can make better decisions based on the most recent data.

Having worked in industry how does it compare to the public sector?

The role I am playing in the public sector has the freedom to think in a broad spectrum of possible developments. I am investigating blockchain-based research and blockchain applications.

The European Blockchain Service Infrastructure (EBSI) and Chinese Blockchain Service Network (BSN) are two major blockchain infrastructure projects other than public blockchains. It is vital to investigate their developments to understand improvements which we can bring to public sector transformation in Ireland. However, in the private sector, mostly we would work in an agile team environment to fulfil small and dedicated tasks.

Do you see any further use cases emerging over here in the near future?

Countries may need to clear their legal barriers to implementing distributed trust and trust sharing between departments and organisations to realise blockchain services. However, Estonia has become the world’s most digital country and the example of using blockchain for public sector services according to a PWC report.

Estonia’s e-health record system uses blockchain technology to help ensure data integrity and security. A blockchain-based driving licences made available as an option in South Korea in May and that hits 1 million drivers recently. I hope, EBSI and BSN infrastructure faster realisation of blockchain applications for real use in the coming years.

What Is Blockchain Programming? | Most-Used Platforms and Languages

The increasing adoption of blockchain technology means it will play an essential role in future applications. Although public or permissionless versions are open and decentralized, they’re also slow. You can centralize and close private blockchains, either completely or partially. You can take advantage of this wave by learning how to build blockchain-powered apps. This article will answer some pertinent questions about the essential requirements.

Overview of Blockchain Programming

Before releasing a blockchain, you must understand the features that make up its architecture. Although initially coded in C++, later versions of blockchain are written in C and Java. These two languages are more compatible with most of the machines that execute the code.

If you’re planning on building a decentralized app (DApp), it’s backend code will run on a decentralized P2P network. You can write its front-end code in any language just as you would with a centralized app. One of its main features should be the ability of its user interface to communicate seamlessly with the backend.

Top Blockchain Programming Platforms

  • Ethereum

This open-source platform is suitable for programming blockchain-powered DApps that support cryptocurrency. It enables the creation of smart contracts that flow through nodes in the blockchain network. Apart from tracking transactions, it offers various programming choices. They include Java, C++, Python, and Go. You can build smart contracts using Solidity. This high-level, object-oriented programming language specializes in creating contracts for multi-signature wallets, blind auctions, crowdfunding, and voting.

  • Hyperledger

This umbrella project brings together various open-source blockchains with the aim of improving technology. It offers the necessary training, events, and tools to encourage collaboration in developing distributed ledgers. It also powers modular blockchain technology, which has an API that is detailed but easy to understand. Hyperledger improves security by ensuring that only relevant parties take part in a transaction. It contains all of the features of blockchain architecture, including data privacy, immutability, and information sharing.

The Best Blockchain Programming Languages

core.cw

The top five languages for blockchain programming are:

1. C++

This extension of the C language is one of the most dependable on this list. It allows the creation of packages containing data, objects, and functions. This convenience means you can reduce coding time by calling and reusing essential programs. Although it’s an old language, C++ has features that make it suitable for blockchain programming. It gives you significant control of memory and CPU usage, hence improving speed and overall performance. This language is an essential component of blockchain projects involving Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, and other types of cryptocurrency.

2. Javascript

This language is arguably the most popular for software creation. Other than jQuery, useful libraries and frameworks include React, Node, and Angular. They’re the main drivers of contemporary web development. Together with CSS and HTML, they enable the creation of highly interactive programs. What makes Javascript suitable for blockchain programming? This language excels at handling non-parallel tasks and is powerful enough to process actions by an increasing number of users.

3. Python

Most new programmers prefer Python due to its simple syntax, which is no different from English. Other than creating web-based applications, the code can also link database systems, perform complex calculations, and handle big data. One of its most attractive features is the completion of commands using new lines instead of the parentheses or semicolons associated with other programming languages. The blockchain ecosystem contains various public tools written in this language. It’s mainly useful in writing smart contracts for the Hyperledger platform.

3. Go

GoLang, or GO, is a relatively new programming language that Google released to the public in 2012. It aims to reap the performance of Python, Javascript, and other modern languages, while maintaining the simplicity and security of C. As a compiled language, GO has a rich library, which is useful in multiple aspects of blockchain projects. It also allows the asynchronous running of several programs. GO’s blockchain-related projects include Go-Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric.

4. Solidity

Solidity is a high-level, domain-specific, and object-oriented solution that has similarities with Javascript. It also contains influences from Python and C++. These characteristics make it suitable for building DApps based on the Ethereum platform and its virtual machine (EVM). Solidity supports libraries, inheritance, and user-defined types. It’s currently the most adapted blockchain programming language in the industry.

While you can learn these languages through online tutorials, a certification from established institutions is better. A prime example isEleven Fifty Academy, which equips you with these highly marketable skills in weeks. An added benefit for veterans is the ability to use your GI Bill benefits to learn to program.

Conclusion

Blockchain’s massive impact will continue to grow in all industries and sectors. Cryptocurrency is now acceptable as a viable payment option by established online stores. Other applications include supply chain management, claims processing, the internet of things, personal identification, community project implementation, and governance. Blockchain programming is the perfect solution to problems posed by an increasingly decentralized world.

Hankyung.com’s Introduces: Medium Inc. Releases ‘MDL Test Lab’ for potential clients to …

SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Following announcement covered by Hankyung.com, The test lab is currently running on AWS (Amazon Web Service) Cloud Server and is open to the public for anyone to try out and verify MDL’s TPS performance through Hyperledger Caliper and J-Meter. Components of the environment include 3 peer nodes, 3 orderer nodes that use a raft based ordering service, 1 channel, and 1 organization. Chaincodes used in Hyperledger Caliper are Smallbank and Simple.

Medium Inc. is an enterprise blockchain solution company that focuses on advancing TPS(Transactions Per Second) performance of Hyperledger Fabric. Hyperledger Fabric is the most widely used enterprise blockchain platform in the global market. Medium is currently delivering its solution, MDL (Medium Distributed Ledger), to numerous public and enterprise environments.

MDL is based on Hyperledger Fabric with three major improvement points. They are:

  • Performance improvement using cache
  • Performance improvement using parallel processing
  • Performance improvement using preprocessing

Through these improvement points, load on the CPU core can be efficiently allocated and unnecessary recomputations can be reduced, therefore resulting in a drastic increase in performance improvement range.

A Medium official stated that “Participants experienced 15,000TPS with 1.6sec Latency directly on the system console and are considering improving their Hyperledger Fabric based systems/services with MDL”. Many of these participants include players in the global IT industry that run operations generating more than ten billion dollars in annual revenue. Microsoft, IBM, Informatica, AWS, Cloudera are a few examples of names on the participants’ partners list.

A commonality these big players share is that they need a system that is able to process large amounts of data with sufficient speed, stability and precision. In order to commercialize enterprise blockchain in the global marketplace, it is essential to introduce a high-performing blockchain technology solution at a serviceable level. Medium has reached this milestone with MDL and is on its way to further develop the technology to a level that is unrivaled. Medium Inc. is to open ways to practical and reliable high performance enterprise blockchain system builds

Pan Jong Kim, CEO of Medium Inc, has stated that “through this test lab, global leading companies have started to pay attention to Medium’s unique blockchain technology. Specific business discussions toward technology commercialization are in progress with participants, and more aggressive marketing activities are to be conducted through a process that will allow easy and convenient introduction of MDL around the world.”

IBM partners with R3 for enterprise blockchain

As previously noted and now confirmed, IBM and R3 are collaborating, both for IBM to provide R3’s enterprise blockchain to its clients and for Corda Enterprise to be available on IBM LinuxONE across the hybrid cloud and on-premises, especially in the area of digital asset custody.

This isn’t IBM’s first blockchain offering outside of Hyperledger Fabric, but to date, R3’s Corda has been a competitor in the permissioned enterprise blockchain realm. That said, if IBM’s clients are interested in Corda, it makes sense for IBM to serve them.

At CordaCon, Jason Kelley, GM of IBM Blockchain Services, said that IBM has had a Corda development team for quite some time. “People think cats and dogs altogether and it’s not,” he said.

But Big Blue is taking it a step further by formalizing an R3 center of excellence within IBM Services, including Corda-certified solution architects.

“R3 and IBM will provide access to the privacy and security inherent in blockchain technology underpinned by IBM LinuxONE,” said R3’s CEO David Rutter. “This combined with the deeply knowledgeable team within IBM Services’ new R3 center of excellence, can empower customers to level up their digital transformation drive.”

While this might be viewed as a huge win for R3, it’s a win-win for both. Ultimately IBM is one of the leading blockchain solution providers and this enables it to extend its reach even further.

A critical need for banks is to secure the keys for blockchain services. And the IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Services provides a solution for banks to keep control of their keys. The offering also provides confidential computing capabilities, an area where R3 has a common interest. R3 launched its first non-blockchain solution, Conclave, which deals with Confidential Computing.

“This announcement builds on the exciting work over the last several months to welcome new workloads to LinuxONE and IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Services in emerging areas like blockchain and digital asset custody – and we’re looking forward to taking this next step with R3 to build on this momentum with clients of all sizes from early stage startups to the largest global enterprises,” said Ross Mauri, GM of IBM Z.

The beta program for IBM LinuxOne starts November 2nd, with a rollout expected in the first quarter of 2021.

Interoperability?

Enterprises often highlight the need to prevent blockchain ecosystems from becoming larger silos. While some progress has been made in public blockchains, and Hyperledger Cactus is working on a solution, to date, R3 has focused on interoperability between ecosystems using its own Corda Network.

IBM wants to bridge the divide, given it has involvement with several distributed ledger technologies (DLT). IBM is also on the governing council of the Hedera Hashgraph DLT and used Stellar for its IBM World Wire project.

“This center of excellence is being designed to innovate and incubate client-requested ideas and use cases leveraging IBM’s deep expertise in developing and standing up commercially available production grade blockchain networks,” said Jason Kelley, General Manager, IBM Blockchain Services. “We will use IBM methods, including design thinking, to focus efforts on developing interoperability solutions for disparate blockchain networks, digital assets and currencies and industry-focused use cases.”

Ethereum Classic (ETC) on ECIP-1099 Merged into Hyperledger Besu

Recently, ETC participants gathered to discuss the proposed mining algorithm change and to share their feedback for and against this ECIP.

Someone clarified by stating, there are only 2 clients out there for EthereumClassic Core-geth Besu if you have anything else, you NEED to upgrade.

ETC Cooperative previously stated, Besu will soon implement MESS (Modified Exponential Subjective Scoring) to prevent large chain reorganizations on the Ethereum Classic network. Anyone who had anything other than these had to upgrade. Migrating to Hyper Ledger Besu was the option.

Also, ChainSafeth were working to implement MESS (Modified Exponential Subjective Scoring), a reorg mitigation, and ECIP-1099 “DAG Recalibration” into Besu. They have been reinstating on how to Migrate to Hyperledger Besu with a help article that led to “How to Switch from OpenEthereum or Multi-Geth.”

ETC Cooperative tweeted: We are happy to announce ECIP-1099 “Epoch Duration Calibration” was merged into @Hyperledger Besu and will soon begin testing on Mordor. Also, ECBP-1100 “MESS” will no longer be implemented into Besu. Many thanks to ChainSafeth for their contributions!”

Many users did not understand what this tweet meant and they were looking for more information to understand this. Those who understood expressed their feelings stating, hello, good news. In which block would this ECIP be applied?

Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted: “Ethereum Classic (ETC) are trying to sustain their own protocol and code identity. It is not about ECIP-1099 and Hyperledger Besu merging.”

These updates allow IOHK Devs to go over last week’s work & plans for the next week to hit their Nov deadline. Nearly done: Treasury support Full client in progress: Checkpointing Mantis Testnet Luna wallet.

Ethereum Classic (ETC)MESS Adoption

In the past Ethereum Classic tweeted: “If MESS is adopted by the honest majority of #EthereumClassic nodes, it would raise chain state finality near-exponentially with negligible risk of network bifurcation. Agreeing To Disagree: Proposing a Weakly-Subjective Finality Solution.”

Vitalik in response stated excited to see ETC adopting weakly subjective fork choice rules to protect the immutability of transactions from being broken by 51% attacks.

In response some of the commentators stated, Imagine taking ETC that seriously. We need a crypto for the new normal.

There were also opinions doing the rounds that VC backing or a treasury solution still seem essential in order to fund development at this point in time. Further stated that if ETC was new on the scene the story is different.

With all that happening the current development is at “ECIP-1099 “Epoch Duration Calibration” was merged into @Hyperledger Besu”
