  • 03:53 Official Newspaper of China's Army Rains on Parade of Blockchain Application on National Defense

    In a growingly enthusiastic environment for the daily application of blockchain tech, the authorities tend to remain a calm mind, especially in a country like China where the policymakers worship "prudence". The PLA Daily, the official newspaper of the Chinese People's Liberation Army, features a story today, on Dec 10th, and combs through the three major pain points for blockchain technology to be applied to key sectors, such as the national defense. First and foremost, the storage system of data running on the blockchain causes massive consumption of resources. The blockchain network operates in an ineffective way, since a slight change requires the entire chain to update. Lastly, the consensus algorithm leaves gateways to security breach, which is a dead spot for national security. The article points out the blockchains built for the national defense will be insignificant to the most popular cryptocurrencies, in terms of the scale, and this constitutes vulnerabilities by potential 51% attacks on the military infrastructure. All in all, the author concludes that as a cutting-edge new tech, its pros and cons must be put under thorough consideration to better serve the key fields of China.

  • 23:40 Korean Court Case Alleges Government's ICO Ban Is Unconstitutional

    South Korean blockchain startup Presto announced on Friday December 7 that it has filed a constitutional complaint alleging that the government's ban on all forms of initial coin offerings (ICOs) in September last year is unconstitutional, local media reported. The company has requested an appeal of the ban, according to Sedaily. It has been more than a year since the ban and the government has yet to introduce any forms of ICO guidelines or regulations, said Presto CEO Kang Kyung-won. Lawyer Park Ju-hyun, who is in charge of filing this case, explained the ban is unconstitutional on two grounds. The first is that it infringes on "the basic rights of the Constitution," such as "freedom of occupation, right to property, [and] right to equality," Sedaily wrote. His "second point is that the basic restrictions were imposed without legal basis," which he cited Article 37 (2) of the Korean Constitution, the news outlet added.
