What is Bytom and It’s Business Model?

8BTC    2017-06-21 15:58:37

20th June Hangzhou– In an interview by Xinlianshe, the Bytom team reveals the project’s future business model, user case and the innovations in its management.
According to the Bytom whitepaper, major features of Bytom are:

  • Bytom adopts three-layer architecture: application layer, contract layer and data transmission layer.
  • Wallet is compatible with BIP32,BIP43,BIP44 or HD wallets, therefore support multiple assets and currencies.
  • Compatible with National Encryption Standard of SM2, SM3.
  • Compatible with sidechain for asset exchange and dividends distribution
  • POW algorithm is friendly to AI ASIC chips.
  • Asset naming adopts ODIN protocol.

 

Changjia, founder of 8btc and Bytom

Q: Please round up Bytom in one sentence.

Changjia:

Bytom connects the digital world with the atomic world, bridging online space and offline space. Offline assets could be registered and exchanged on blockchain.

Duan Xinxing:

Bytom is an interpretational protocol for multiple assets.

More and more digital assets will emerge in the future. Bytom bridges physical word and byte world for multiple digital assets, promoting the registration, circulation and exchange of various digital assets.

Q: Many public chain projects are just an open source platform without a clear business model. What is the profit pattern of Bytom?

Duan Xinxing:

First, Bytom network provides a trust service. The project itself provides a mechanism for cross-asset transactions and swaps of a variety of assets. We will conduct a paid due diligence investigation on all projects to be listed on Bytom. Secondly, we will provide free free basic service and paid additional service for the the flow and exchange of asset. Thirdly, upper layer application will be developed on Bytom for the entire ecosystem. Finally, with the continuous improvement of Bytom network, the token of Bytom itself will also enjor appreciation.

Changjia:

We can provide credit services. If two assets transaction counterparties do not trust each other, then Bytom can act as escrow. Later, with the circulation of assets over Bytom becomes more and more efficient and increasing volume, the credit rating of transaction counterparties is very important, based on this we can provide credit rating report, which could even be accessible by other platforms.

Duan Xinxing, Executive Director of 8btc

Q: What is the application scenario of Bytom?

Changjia:

There are three major user cases for Bytom. First is the management of income assets, including movies, home-stay projects, of which the investors only care about the dividends rather than the asset-holders. The dividend distribution is conducted via smart contracts. Specifically, supporters can quickly exchange their rights of income with others via Bytom, which could be completed via blockchain wallet and escrow feature of Bytom.
Second, should the regulation be clear, Bytom could be used for the management of non-listed company options and private fund equities. At present, the only way to withdraw money from private funding projects is being acquired or repurchase. In United States the ratio of withdrawal through equity transfer is very high. Also the transaction costs are lower. With blockchain technology, Bytom publicizes all shareholder’s info on blockchain to register the ownership, thus eliminating the complicated paperwork involved in the share transfer process, improving the efficiency of asset circulation in a safe and reliable way.
Third, Bytom will be used for asset securitization. With the blockchain technology, asset-backed securitization (ABS) can be simplified into three steps: one is the right registration; the second is the tokenization, assets are divided into currency or token; third is the smart contract transactions. Managing securitized assets through Bytom can greatly improve the efficiency, safety and traceability of ABS. Transaction record are safely stored to ensure the immutability of information and execution of smart contract.

Q: Other public blockchain projects use algorithm that are compatible with FPGA to achieve hardware acceleration. Bytom take a different way by adopting a consensus algorithm that is friendly to AI ASIC chips. Why?

Changjia:

The proposal of AI ASIC-friendly consensus algorithm is a major innovation of Bytom network. Bitcoin ASIC miners could only perform hashing computation, which is a potential waste in the arms race. Bytom can be directly integrated on existing ASIC chips for mining. This is a win-win situation for AI industry and blockchain industry. Miners will be rewarded for getting involved in the mining and in turn boost the demand for ASIC chips. As for the mining industry, the outdated mining farm could be transformed into data center that provides AI hardware acceleration service. This will generate social benefits and raise the utilization of resources.

Duan Xinxing:

Simply speaking, previous blockchain consensus mechanism relies on a fool-type computing. Bytom consensus algorithm could provide computation power for AI and other industries along with mining. Bitcoin’s POW algorithm is often criticized with too much energy waste. Bytom’s mining mechanism could bring benefits to various participants in the ecosystem.

 

Q: In the economic whitepaper, Bytom proposes a three-tier governance structure, namely the Autonomy Committee, the Management Committee and the Token-holder Committee. What is the difference between this and other projects?
Duan Xinxing:

The governance structure of Bytom is designed to balance the “efficiency and justice” issue between investors and developers. Therefore, the token-holder committee is introduced into the management circle, which represents fairness and the interest of investors. As the core unit, the Management Committee is responsible for efficiency and authorization, coordinating the development of the project.

Changjia:

Other public blockchain project is positioned as a pure open source platform, the management of which is loose and seeking no profits. Such model obscures the obligation and responsibility. Bytom’s governance structure could achieve balance between fairness and efficiency.

Bytom has over 30 members at the moment. Core development team consists of industrial experts: Changjia is the founder and CEO of 8btc and has been committed to promoting blockchain technology and theoretical research for years. Duan Xinxing, former VP and Chieft Researcher of OKCoin, is responsible for product design and branding work. Lang Yu, founder of 8btc and former engineer of Alipay, is in charge of development. Gavin Qu is responsible for 8btc marketing and operation and running the blockchain hardware lab. Li Zongcheng, former senior executive of Kedi Group, has rich experience in investment and financing and profound understanding of the blockchain application in the financial industry.


As for the future of Bytom, Changjia, the leader of the project, said,

“We want to prosper along with the industry.”

分析师看后市3月20日:7位看涨1位看平2位看跌
今日共有10位币圈分析师对BTC明日走势进行了判断,其中7位看涨1位看平2位看跌。 1.看涨 @闪电说币:成交量放大,主力资金进场,均线系统底部背离,压力位4200,下方强力支持位3950,各个平台IEO会带动大盘上攻。操作建议,持币待涨,埋伏主力资金在场的币种,抓住热点。 @币皇帝:下午6点插针控盘已经进入洗盘最后阶段,4000支撑越战越勇,主力即将发力冲击4100,平台币继续带动市场热情拿住手中筹码等待行情。 @数字货币趋势狂人:从目前市场情绪来看,杀跌做空的动能并不是很大,因此本轮的调整最终会以震荡结束收场的概率更大,即围绕着3950-4000之间反复窄幅震荡。当然如果回调时空头发力,那么短期回调至3800将在所难免,无论如何,近期直接上攻困难重重,因此我们可以等回调再去加仓,市场欠我们一个反弹,突破只是时间问题。 @姥爷谈币:4000平稳迈过,多头信号已经释放,坐好车,扶好车把。 @黑钻评级:4小时均线上行,布林带欲开口;日线上均线,布林带平滑向上,且往4000点驱动,所以行情多头开始释放信号。操作建议:回调至3990、3985低多,也可在4000点位低多持仓,在4055、4100、4200点位布局出仓。 @币橙评测:平台币齐飞,主流币盘整,控制仓位,追随趋势。操作建议:低多,跌破10日均线止损。 @币世界多空指南针:1小时操作建议为强烈买入,4小时操作建议为强烈买入。注:多空指南可在《币世界》行情币种详情页查询。 2.看平 @飞龙在天:看平,BTC目前还在区间内运行,上方4020,下方3950,等待破位选择方向,顺势而为。 3.看跌 @牛魔王看盘:今晚美联储议息会议,鹰派言论的概率很大,美元如果走强,对比特币利空。比特币可能向下整固底部,关注3900的支撑。 @创爷:今明两天冲高转暴跌,支撑4215,下方3750。 (注:以上观点为分析师个人建议,不构成任何投资意向,仅供参考。)

IBM宣布推出支付网络World Wire后,巨鲸转移了10亿枚XLM
小葱APP讯,3月20日,发生了两笔数额巨大的XLM交易,第一次交易是在2019年3月20日凌晨1点03分,10亿枚XLM被转移,交易从GDKI开头钱包地址发送到GDQP开头地址。在第一笔交易完成两分钟后,GDQP开头地址又将1000,000,331枚 XLM移动到GBDU开头地址。小葱发现,第一笔交易的价值为1.1157亿美元,第二笔交易的价值也几乎相同。根据Stellar Expert分析,GDKI开头钱包是目前最富有的Stellar Lumens钱包,拥有超过436.41亿XLM。第一次交易的接收者GDQP开头地址则是Coinbase的钱包,目前余额为39.9999 XLM。Stellar Lumens钱包创建于2016年8月10日,当时持有473.64亿XLM,目前余额已经减少。一位XLM爱好者goodtexture在推特上写道:“我的猜测是,一旦有消息宣布,为了防止价格失控,额外的流动性是必要的。比如Facebook Coin的发布。只猜测”另一位推特用户@ryptobob评论道: “不要认为这是为了阻止一项声明导致价格上涨。要做到这一点,根本不需要这么大的规模。”小葱此前报道过,近日,Stellar Lumens宣布,他们的专有产品“world Wire”将面向全球约72个国家的银行和金融机构业务。由于World Wire是Ripple的xRapid的直接竞争对手,整个社区的粉丝已经开始争论哪种解决方案更好。(ambcrypto)
