Emercoin [EMC] 13th week of 2017
We hadn’t noticed at all how the first month of spring flew by. Outside the window—it was already April!
The merriest celebrations for the first day of April were held in Kolionovo. A big crowd gathered at the house of our friend and partner, Mikhail Shlyapnikov, to enjoy the spring and celebrate International Bird Day. People came to the village of Kolionovo from all corners of the country for a chance to chat with the famous farmer as well as build some bird feeders and just have a good time. Mikhail’s Facebook page is flashing with bright photos from that day: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001802183805&pnref=lhc.unseen
That day, Mikhail also presented his new project, “Kolionovo Ekosystem” (“The Ecosystem of Kolionovo”), and officially announced the beginning of fundraising for its development. The main purpose of the project is to raise crowdfunding resources for the development of real agriculture. ICO is based on the Waves platform with the use of Emercoin services. https://kolionovo.com
If you remember, we had written earlier that we are officially switching to merged mining. And it hasn’t taken long to see the results! Throughout March, the growth in the complexity of Emercoin’s mining has increased twenty times over. According to Emercoin’s team, the total network hash rate has exceeded 5 petahashes and continues to growing. How can one not be happy over such news!

Emercoin [EMC] 15th week of 2017
A CoinTelegraph article, a new wallet version, and striking figures.
Good day Blockchain Connoisseurs!
As soon as our friend and partner Mikhail Shlyapnikov launched ICO, one of the most respected magazines in the world, CoinTelegraph, wrote about it right away, and not without mentioning Emercoin. It turned out to be a very good article. Here’s the link for those who have not yet had time to read it: https://cointelegraph.com/news/blockchain-is-like-badass-tractor-how-russian-farmer-launched-ico
As always, we have a lot going on. Last week, we released a new Emercoin Web wallet version 2.1, which is significantly improved and optimized. We have added an option to transfer net value scores (NVS) to a third-party EMC address, as well as a reminder about expiring NVS. It’s much more convenient to create and edit blockchain name values in the new version. To learn more about the advantages of EmcWeb 2.1, read our press release: http://www.blockchainengine.org/emcweb-2-1/
Last week, a study by Allied Market Research was published that showed that the global blockchain market will grow to $ 5.4 billion by 2023. The market volume includes the income of all companies from this sector: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/blockchain-distributed-ledger-market
Such figures are a good motivator, so we’ll go back to work. And to raise our spirits, here’s a photo of our Masha.
Emercoin [EMC] Release v0.6.2
The developers of the digital cryptocurrency Emercoin have announced that in the version released on April 26th, an embedded cryptocurrency exchanger has been added and the final remnants of centralization have ceased operation. These were the centralized alerts and compulsory dynamic check-points, passed on to Emercoin as an inheritance from Peercoin. The code was used during the initial development of the Emercoin blockchain.
In Version 6.2 Emercoin users have the opportunity to choose: to keep alerts turned on; to create a public key independently for a third party, who they trust; or to switch off alerts as a matter of principle.
In the same way it’s now possible to manage settings for the dynamic check-points. This subsystem, designed to protect the network from some attacks specific to PoS, was also inherited by Emercoin from Peercoin. Now they continue to fulfill the same function, however as the PoW difficulty of the Emercoin network has reached half that of the difficulty of the Bitcoin network, their role is significantly reduced. Therefore users can now decline “the developers’ inescapable check-points”, and use a check-point source that they personally trust, or switch them off altogether.
We have crossed the Rubicon, getting rid of the last instruments which affect the health of the Emercoin network. Whether this was the right step or a mistake — only time will tell. We are guided by the ideals and principles which Satoshi impressed on us and which we share. We are in favor of decentralization.
— Evgenii Shumilov, founder and CEO of Emercoin
Also in Emercoin 6.2, there is now an exchanger for basic cryptocurrencies embedded in the wallet. Now you can make transfers directly from your wallet Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Dash, Monero, Namecoin, Peercoin, and Blackcoin addresses. The exchange is carried out through the online-exchanger CoinReform. If there turns out to be a high demand for this option, then the developers will expand both the number of currencies available for exchange, and the list of exchangers.

A great deal of consideration was given to the practical aspects of the Emercoin blockchain platform. The Emer Team was represented by CMO Stanislav Polozov and CTO Oleg Khovaiko, who was live streamed from Washington D. C.
HashCoins and Emercoin launched passwordless authorization system Authorizer.io
Authorizer.io was officially launched on May 18. This is an open non-commercial project intended to increase the security of user accounts, mitigate the risks of password interception and demonstrate the advantages of open blockchain technologies.
Authorizer.io was created through the efforts of three teams: HashCoins, Aspanta and Emercoin.
The main goal of the project is to draw the attention of users to password-free authorization technologies and to the advantages of blockchain certificates for daily use.
Authorizer.io enables website owners to integrate the authorization system quickly and easily through Emerсoin SSL certificates.

Emercoin Consortium to Offer Blockchain-Based Solutions to Customers of the Largest System Integrator in Russia
The Emercoin Team, in collaboration with Estonian company Hashcoins OU and Russian system integrator I-Teco, signed a Tripartite Agreement for the founding of the Emercoin Consortium.
The task of the Emercoin Consortium will be the joint development and implementation of specific Emercoin-based solutions for the largest Russian and global companies.
The Emercoin Consortium will offer the customers of I-Teco Innovation Center blockchain-based solutions for the economic sectors that are now adapting to this technology: logistics, document flow, retail, credit operations, and so forth. The implementation of these tasks will require the adaptation of the existing tools, as well as the creation of new tools through the joint efforts of the Emercoin Team, Hashcoins OU, and I-Teco.
Emercoin has unique experience in the development of non-monetary services as compared to other blockchains. Many developers recognize Emercoin as one of the most user-friendly solutions when becoming acquainted and starting work within this field, as well as the best option for launching blockchain-based projects.
“The Emercoin Team has been developing a blockchain platform for industrial use for more than four years. We have implemented both crypto-currency and a number of non-monetary services. We offer more than just a speculative bubble, we offer market tested tools to solve tasks for real businesses. But we also understand that it is not enough to only create services. It is necessary to implement and integrate these services into existing business processes, provide maintenance and training, and so forth. We are pleased that I-Teco Innovation Center has become our partner, as they have deep expertise in the implementation and maintenance of complex projects in this field, as well as in the integration of various technologies”,
said Oleg Hovaiko, the Senior Developer of the Emercoin Team.
Cooperation with I-Teco within the Consortium will enable the Emercoin Team to combine their development experience with I-Teco’s implementation and support experience; the Emercoin Team will also offer the integrator’s customers and other involved businesses and institutions unique solutions based on one of the most promising blockchain-based technologies.
“Among hundreds of blockchain platforms, only a few have non-monetary services. Emercoin — precisely one such platform — presents, in addition to its ready-for-work package of non-monetary services, a universally reliable platform for the creation of new ones. Currently, this functionality is most relevant for corporate use, and our customers are heavily interested in such solutions. We thoroughly analyzed the different teams of blockchain solution developers and chose the Emercoin Team due to them being the most experienced team in the implementation of non-monetary solutions based on blockchain”,
said Yury Kirilchev, the Director for Business Development of I-Teco Innovation Center.
I-Teco Innovation Center, LLC of I-Teco Group is the largest IT integrator out of the Top 20 companies in the Russian market. Among the customers of the Innovation Center are some of the largest Top 10 Russian companies, banks, retail chains, and others.
HashCoins is an Estonian developer of equipment, technologies, and software solutions based on blockchain. The company owns a number of successful businesses, including HashFlare, a service of cloud bitcoin mining with more than half a million users.
Emercoin is a powerful blockchain suitable for the development of non-monetary services, especially relevant for the corporate sector. Currently, the following services have been implemented on the Emercoin platform:
- EmerSSL, EmerSSH — decentralized services of authorization and network security;
- EmerDNS — a decentralized service of domain names;
- InfoCard — a decentralized service of electronic business cards;
- EmerDPO (Digital Proof of Ownership) — a distributed ledger for ownership of products and intangible assets;
- EmerTTS — a blockchain-based service of document notarization;
- ENUMER — a decentralized gateway between systems of classical and IP telephony.
The Emercoin Consortium is open for cooperation, and it invites companies interested in implementation of blockchain technologies in their products and processes, as well as in development of new blockchain solutions to join the Emercoin Consortium. We are interested in cooperation with large system integrators, leading software and hardware IT companies, and large financial and industrial groups.
As a technology, blockchain demonstrates maximum efficiency in large-scale tasks. Using blockchain, the largest organizations collectively will be able to reduce their costs by billions of dollars.
Members of the Consortium will get access to the Emer technologies and comprehensive support, including technical advice, analytics, assistance in hiring qualified blockchain developers, and other options of necessary support.
Emercoin [EMC] coming soon in Jaxx Wallet
On May 22, the Canadian company Decentral announced a massive expansion of the functionality of the Jaxx Wallet. Jaxx is building partnerships with dozens of blockchain projects and platforms, exchanges and venture companies, including Emercoin which will soon be added to Jaxx.
The Emercoin cryptocurrency was recently added to the largest mining pools — F2pool and Mergemining. This boosted the complexity growth of Emercoin mining. The Emer team is confident that when Emercoin joins Jaxx Wallet, it will be much easier for users to work with the cryptocurrency, and this will increase the number of Emercoin supporters.
“We love supporting all projects and the community behind it. Of course, this includes Emercoin. We will continue to expand not only for wallets, but to future project growth..”
Charlie Shrem, Director of Business and Community Development, Decentral & Jaxx
The wallet’s creators are confident that Jaxx Wallet will become a tool that will help bring digital currencies and digital assets to the public.
“We are bringing together all facets of the blockchain ecosystem with Jaxx to provide a universal interoperable interface so that non-technical people, like my dad, can easily use these decentralized technologies.”
Anthony Di Iorio, founder and CEO of Decentral & Jaxx
Advantages of the Jaxx cryptowallet:
- All keys are created on your local device and never sent to any servers. This means that you fully control the wallet and Jaxx does not have access to your money.
- Simple and friendly interface.
- Special standards guarantee that if the wallet ceases to exist, the user keys can be imported to another service.
Jaxx was developed to work and synchronize on all devices. It is available on 9 different platforms including Windows, Apple and Linux, Android and iOS for mobile devices and tablets, as well as Google Chrome and Firefox extensions.
