IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

BOScoin Launches ARIST, a research institute to focus on platform Reliability, Scalability, and Privacy

 

In its whitepaper 2.0, BOScoin set out a clear vision for its future, namely an evolution of Project Financing into Public Financing for a better capitalism — using credit creation through participation, impact investment based on voting, and commonization of certain real world assets. In order to implement Public Financing on the blockchain, BOScoin is developing three key technologies, and is continuing to share visible outcomes with the wider developer community. The following are the key technologies BOScoin is working on to enable Public Financing.

The BOScoin ARIST (Advanced Research Institute for Social Trust, http://arist.io/), takes on the role of engineering and verifying platform Reliability, Scalability, and Privacy in order to accelerate adoption and commercialization. The institute will hire over twenty mathematics, physics, software engineering, and other experts to research the consensus protocol, trust contracts, privacy technology, and public financing.

Community Management / Meetup

During our trip to Amsterdam and Prague, the team conducted two meetups. We’ve uploaded the Amsterdam meetup which took place on May 13th, 2018 to youtube. There were approximately 30 attendees at the Amsterdam meetup, and the group asked some good questions throughout the session, as you will see from the video. The Amsterdam meetup is divided into two parts. Part one contains a short overview of the project and an explanation of Public Financing. Part Two contains an explanation of the key technology and questions. You can view the videos on our official youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8jcLGbwx_itHzgFPcTLiBg
