Major Headlines

 

Coinbase Acquires Distributed Systems

The addition of a digital identity and security focused start-up useful to every aspect of Coinbase’s constantly expanding business plan. Government regulators continue to fall back on the questions of data security regarding cryptocurrency and the digital marketplace. However, cryptocurrencies highlight the ways that our current system is actually very flawed. As a basic example, a social security number: this number is crucial to verifying your own identity, and extremely useful to someone attempting to steal. Companies like Distributed Systems are designing systems where this number would be encrypted, but still easily used and validated, in the same way that private and public keys work with cryptocurrency wallets.

The organization claims it is the “first secure, open blockchain platform that enables the efficient and permissioned-based collection of statistical data on behalf of insurance carriers, regulators and other participating contributors.” The new platform, openIDL also includes a smart contract feature to enable automatic transaction execution.
