Security and Blockchain

In the development of technologies such as blockchain, there is internal logic, because they rely on the objective laws of physics and mathematics, but a person can control them and put them at their service. Any attempt to prohibit or stop this movement is doomed to failure.

In the development of technologies such as blockchain, there is internal logic, because they rely on the objective laws of physics and mathematics, but a person can control them and put them at their service. Any attempt to prohibit or stop this movement is doomed to failure. Why fight the objective laws of development, is it not better to try to understand them and benefit from them.

Just think: 30 years ago, in the early 1990s, the most reputable media seriously believed that the Internet would never become truly popular. The largest media experts confidently said that their audience would never want to tear themselves away from the couch and entertain themselves. What opportunities they have missed!

We have all heard the word bitcoin more than once. The most valuable thing in this cryptocurrency is that it introduced the world to the revolutionary blockchain technology. Blockchain technology significantly improves the speed, privacy, and security of sending money. For example, the same bitcoin can be sent from one person to another without an intermediary, and the identity of each participant in the chain will be encrypted in a long line of letters and numbers.

The cryptocurrency Bitcoin has gained a terrible reputation – they began to use it for anonymous transfer of money in the process of buying drugs. Skeptics say the blockchain was created to serve the drug trade and illicit trade. But is this all we need to know about this technology?

Now we can safely talk about the “blockchain revolution”. But what is the revolutionary nature of this technology? The Internet has brought us a lot of positive things: email, social networks, mobile applications, big data, cloud computing and the nascent Internet of things. But the internet is impersonal. In 1993, New York magazine published a caricature of an American artist, Peter Steiner. In the figure, two dogs are talking in front of a computer, one another says: “On the Internet, no one knows that you are a dog.” The anonymity of the Internet has brought negative effects. Hackers, spammers, cyber fraudsters have appeared. Besides, the problem of digital inequality has arisen. Economic and political benefits are becoming increasingly asymmetric. Money brings a lot more money to those who have access to technology.

The uniqueness of the #MetaHash project lies in its versatility. The main components of the network merge into a coherent single system that allows complex decentralized applications to work in real-time under high loads. Reliability and stability of the project, as well as comprehensive security and synchronization of the resources, are determined by the components of the #MetaHash system.

The first attempt to solve the problem of secure payments on the Internet was made back in the …

3 Important Decisions For Retirement

Most people join the working world in their 20’s. After this, they will take on countless challenges and many years of working hard. They will sacrifice many things when they become parents and will look forward to their golden retirement years. Most people only really consider what their retirement plans are when they are well into their 50’s.

3 Important Decisions For Retirement

What most people fail to realize is that planning for the day of retirement is about much more than sipping coffee on the verandah. When thinking of retirement there are several key questions which would need answering, long before the day arrives when you finally leave work for the last time.

Here are a few things you will need to consider before you finally retire:

Planning Is Essential

Retirement is the perfect time to start thinking about what you want. If you’re lucky you will no longer be responsible for children and you would have raised self-sufficient children who are capable of looking after themselves. In your last 10 years before retirement, you need to realistically plan essentials such as finances. You need to make sure that you have all the money you need to avoid running out of savings in your 70’s. A great time to get this done is in your early 50’s when you meet with an accredited financial advisor.

Decide Where To Stay

When you retire, you’ll need to make sure that you have the perfect place. If you’ve owned a house for most of your life, then the chances are good that it is already paid off. This is great. But, the downside of this is that the house may be too big for you. Take for example, if you bought a house in your 20’s with the prospect of having children around then you’ve probably got a 4 bedroom house on your hands.

Now with your retirement looming and the children all out the house, do you really need that big house? You’ll just end up spending your retirement cleaning the place. If you decide to sell the house after your retirement, you’ll have quite a substantial amount of money for a new, more suited place to live out your golden years.

There are countless options available to retirees including moving to a retirement centric accommodation or investing in a smaller house. Retirement accommodation villages are often well equipped with on-site care facilities and recreational activities. The slower and more calm nature of the establishments makes them a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of day to day life in the working world.

Healthcare Priorities

Along with a host of other things, growing old comes with its own set of complications. The most obvious of these is the general deterioration of health. During the planning stages for retirement, it is important to remember that most healthcare schemes are quite reluctant to pay for chronic medicines and therefore these would need to be factored into the funds needed for retirement.…
