Amazon Healthcare anyone ?

What do you think about Amazon Healthcare?  Oh yeah Berkshire and JPMC are also involved so some big money backers and possibilities.   I wonder if they will utilize some blockchain Technologies to cut out some fees and Middlemen.

Stellar and an ico

https://www.coindesk.com/why-a-39-million-ico-chose-stellar-over-ethereum/

Interesting concept and use case.  Makes sense as well as these fees are making the traditional blockchain leaders far too expensive for simple tasks. 

Ripple ripple xrp why

Do banks want Ripple ?

That was the question, is the question and will be the question for a long time.  Ripple actually has built a very good ledger and platform for cross border exchanges.  And the SWIFT network is the middleman of the middelman centralized fallacy of fallacies. 

However, Ripple has become another centralized version of a fallacy themselves.

Hide blockchain from their marketing hype and what makes you think WOW?   That's the biggest problem for Ripple because they aren't some new decentralized eliminate the middleman philosophy at all.  They are just a different version of SWIFT.  Time will tell.

First Quantum-Secured Blockchain Technology Tested


First Quantum-Secured Blockchain Technology Tested in Moscow...

Quantum computing is fascinating, but it's really early stages, so we don't know what it or where this technology will shape the space.  Will it be real quantum computing or a marketing hyped space ?  We all know half the AI space isn't even complicated machine learning algorithms.

But the super quantum computers could make the blockchain cryptocurrency double spend philosophy null and void and irrelevant.  Brute force attacks are cost prohibitive with normal computers. But brute force with a quantum computer,  Still expensive , but possible.  And that's today. Just imagine.  

Good start here in testing different strategies to combat this possibilities.
