  good article, decentralization is necessary, but like everything in our world it is an eternal struggle.

Blockchain Beyond Hype / BBH#9 Decentralization of Internet - Patricia Parkinson
« Last post by Rohan on September 24, 2019, 06:42:45 pm »
Since the boom of "dot com" more than 20 years ago, the Internet has reshaped not only the way people interact with each other, but also the way businesses operate and serve customers. Along with rapid tech development, however, the Internet which used to be decentralized slowly turned to be centralized. On episode 9 of Blockchain Beyond Hype, we invited Patricia Parkinson to discuss how the blockchain technology can re-decentralize the internet again!

Blockchain Beyond Hype / BBH#8 Reducing Plastic Pollution with Blockchain - Russel Maier
« Last post by Rohan on September 24, 2019, 06:38:54 pm »
The plastic pollution study by National Geographic reveals that an estimated 18 billions of plastic waste enter the world’s ocean from coastal regions each year. Not only that plastic pollution is dangerous to animals and the environment but also to human health because the plastic disintegrating into smaller pieces, i.e., “microplastic”, can easily be absorbed by any small-sized animals such as fish. On the 8th episode of Blockchain Beyond Hype, we invited Russell Maier, Founder of Global Ecobrick Alliance ( to discuss his ecobricking movement and how he uses blockchain to solve plastic pollution and turn plastic waste into reusable building blocks.

is there any link / testimonies written about collapsed project ?

Trust me. You don 't have to resist. You 've already been repeated. You lose a year. I 've already informed Roberto. Many projects today come out with the name PoP/People don 't even read the forum when they see it. All projects collapsed 100 times.

PoP looks like a piece of music. Lightly. Especially there are repeats. Maybe before it 's too late, change the global acronym. For many people, it 's already skimmed. Can. PoPSW?  SUPER WAGON///
Если, Вы меня не услышите, то с этими повторялками скоро будет огромная проблема.  Уж, простите... If you don 't hear me, there will soon be a huge problem with these repeats. Well, I 'm sorry...
Может быть даже необходимо сделать патент на новую аббревиатуру.  Скоро будут миллионы повторяющих..  Оправдыавться замучаетесь. Необходимо все заранее юридически оформить... It may even be necessary to make a patent for a new abbreviation. There will soon be millions repeating.. You justify being tortured. It is necessary to formalize everything in advance..

I've reviewed the tech you linked, and I can say it is not related or even similar to the algorithm we have called Proof of Participation. Our algorithm (described in mild detail in the White Paper draft) is not used by any other blockchain.

I think we can afford to keep the name for now. Like domain names, virtually every combination of "proof of" words is taken lol. I have confidence that ours will become the known one over this project.
See the timeline in and see when we will release the alpha version, then there will be the opportunity to test the network :)

  ALPHA MEN, PRE ALPHA RELEASE!  NOVEMBER 20   2019          I understand correctly ,and you have github?

We do have our code in Github, but our organization ( is currently private.

When we are satisfied with the stability of the alpha release of our tech (which will remain closed source), we will do a beta release when we will open the source code.

Some things might be open sourced before the beta, like the SDKs we are preparing to interface with the tech. Waiting to see what code evolves to high quality by what time :).

I believe that that are deleted the try catch because are really really more heavy then an if, in c++ it is alwayse a good practice avoid try catch when you have time constraint ( really common in c++ application)

Hi Louis, welcome to ZooBC forum :).

Yes, one thing we like about Golang is the error handling model. Try/Catch is a useful pattern but as you point out it is quite expensive to implement, and Go forces us to structure our code paths in a way that can return an error without invoking it.

A bigger reason involves concurrency. Creating entire CPU threads in C++ or Java is very expensive compared to Golang's "go routines", which can be automatically organized several per thread in such a way that it does not break the concurrency expectations of the application. This makes it much easier for us to structure concurrent tasks without the extra processor overhead and without a lot of manual process juggling.

Arguably languages like Rust or C++ can be even stronger for this, but we prefer to keep the code very clear and simple also. One of our objectives with the project is a readable codebase which can be understood without being a guru of your language of choice, and we think Go is strong in this regard.
Is there any topic of reward mechanisms?

Hi Boby.

We are still finalizing our plans for how the reward distribution will be done, but it will be something like this: each block, all of the block creators in the node registry have a chance to win a lottery of new coins created by that block. The protocol may select 20, 30 winners per block, something like this, who will evenly divide the new block rewards. A node's chance to win the lottery will be proportional to its Participation Score as derived via the Proof of Participation algorithm.
