FOREX INVESTORS   Ledger Hardware Wallet   ARK is proud to announce our partnership with Ledger Hardware Wallet. The collaboration for ARK/Ledger integration has been in the works for a while now, and the ARK Crew is very excited to release it finally.

ARK integration into the Ledger Hardware Wallet makes ARK the tenth cryptocurrency to be secured by this fantastic piece of hardware. Ledger provides additional security measures and the ability for users to store their ARK safely, with peace of mind along with other supported major cryptocurrencies.

ARK and Ledger are making two firsts with this addition. ARK is now the first Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) blockchain and the first JavaScript blockchain ever to get native integration into the Ledger Hardware Wallet. There is more to the partnership between ARK and Ledger. The ARK-desktop and ARK-mobile wallets will be compatible with Ledger wallet, and they will be BIP32 compliant.

It means Ledger wallet users will be able to generate HD wallets with extra security without having any single passphrase getting out of the Ledger device. Once full compatibility with the Ledger Hardware wallet is achieved, ARK will also extend Ledger Hardware Wallet support to its Desktop and Mobile wallets, requiring them to sign transactions if the ledger account is synced to the ARK wallets.

Also, any future ARK cloned network, ARK fork, or ARK test-net/dev-net will be compatible with the Ledger soon. Making every ARK cloned chain Ledger compatible. ARK support on Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue is set to go live on July 28, 2017.

What is Ledger?

Ledger is a cryptocurrency hardware wallet for storing cryptographic assets and securing digital payments like Bitcoin, ARK, and other altcoins. It connects to any computer (USB) and embeds a secure OLED display to double-check and confirm each transaction with a single tap on its side buttons.

Ledger Nano S ensures that secrets like private keys are never exposed. The device isolates sensitive operations within a contained state of the art Secure Element which is locked by a PIN code. All transactions in and out of the wallet are tamper proof, and they can be physically verified on the embedded screen with a simple press of a button.

Users can send and receive payments, check accounts and manage multiple addresses for each currency from the same device. Nano S also supports the FIDO® Universal Second Factor standard that simplifies the authentication process on compatible online services such as Gmail, Dashlane, Dropbox or GitHub. The ledger accounts can be backed up on a recovery sheet, making restoration of lost/damaged devices easy with any Ledger device or compatible wallets (BIP39/BIP44).

Security

Based on a dual chip architecture (ST31/STM32, Certification level: CC EAL5+), Ledger Nano S provides unprecedented firmware integrity guaranteed by cryptographic attestation. It can be accessed only after entering a 4-8-digit PIN code, each time it is plugged into a computer. The hardware wallet makes allowance for easy initialization and restoration of configuration within a secure environment. The security features integrated into the wallet are designed to ensure the cryptographic secrets are never exposed to the outside world.

Users’ private keys are never held or known by Ledger or any other third party as they remain hard-locked within the Secure Element. With Ledger Nano S, the wallet remains decentralized, allowing the users to be their own bank.

Limited Edition ARK Nano S

ARK, in association with Ledger, has come up with a Special Limited-Edition ARK branded Nano S hardware wallet. Only 1000 of these devices will ever be manufactured, which gives more the reason for anyone interested in laying their hands upon it to order a piece as soon as they are made available.

The ARK branded Ledger Nano’s release is scheduled for early August 2017. More information about the release and its availability will be provided on the platform’s social media (Twitter/Facebook/Reddit/BitcoinTalk) accounts. Community members can also join the announcement channel on ARK’s Slack account to keep track of the developments.

About ARK

ARK is a decentralized digital asset token based on a much-advanced blockchain technology and is meant for mass consumer adoption. ARK, with its extensive capabilities, incorporates some of the best features like SmartBridge Technology, allowing it to communicate with other blockchains. It uses Encoded Listeners that listens for any communication sent via the ARK SmartBridge vendor fields inserted as small code snippets by participating blockchains. The SmartBridge can be utilized by other coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and even SmartBridge Apps.

ARK is the first Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus based cryptotoken, with initial upgrades like HD (Hierarchical Deterministic) Wallets. ARK has made significant improvements to its DPoS algorithm and the Lisk codebase from which it was forked.

Why is it so secure?

Buz Investors  Exscudo Channels app Exscudo Channels is the most convenient and secure tool for sending money and information from mobile devices. The Exscudo Team has taken the best practices of blockchain solutions to provide for ultimate reliability of the app. Despite the two-factor-authentication and other common security measures, the team has implemented more advanced features to protect the users.

Exscudo Channels app

  • All messages are encrypted before they reach the blockchain. Exscudo Channels uses the algorithm of elliptic curves.

  • It is utterly impossible to track the messages and finances: no one knows where the message comes from and where it goes to. The information is being processed on all nodes of the network simultaneously.

  • The private key is stored on the user device only and is not transmitted to peers.

  • The messenger cannot be blocked or banned, since new nodes and peers can be set up immediately, preventing the system from breaking down.

  • The digital signature protects against unauthorized changes or sending of messages during the delivery process. The public key digital signature is stored in the public domain in the network itself.

  • The HTTPS is an additional security measure to the encryption of messages.

The idea behind Exscudo Channels was to create the optimal solution for secure communications for both private and commercial use. The product will be of interest for users that need a tool for secure business communication, as well as for those who seek absolute privacy and anonymity in everyday chats.

What can I do with Exscudo Channels?

With Exscudo Channels, people can send and receive messages and money quickly, easily and securely. The app unites the functions of a wallet and a messenger, and each of these two sides has its own features.

The multicurrency wallet is connected to the user’s account on the Exscudo Exchange. It allows people to store, send, receive and exchange currencies in real-time with a minimum spread. It also supports NFC for direct payments right from a device. In the future, it will be possible to pay with cryptocurrencies from Exscudo Channels wallets even in convenience stores. The money is being converted automatically: if a user pays from a BTC wallet for a good which has a price in USD, the money is converted by the Exscudo Exchange automatically. The app will also integrate with Exscudo bank cards, but this functionality will be released in later updates of the app.

The messenger supports different types of chats. There are private, personal and group chats, as well as public channels. In private chats, users can send and receive money directly in the chat. The user just needs to tap on the special button to make the transfer. Group chats are usual multi-user conversations for friends and colleagues. The admin of the group channel can invite only his or her contacts to the group chat. But the public channels make the difference. These are created for media people and businesses, as they provide for the monetization of the published content. These channels can be browsed openly in the search of the app and are usually devoted to specific topics: new, hobbies or corporate updates.

Another feature of the app are the valuable likes.

What are valuable likes?

The mechanism is easy: if you like a post by another user, you press the ‘like’ button. By doing so, you send this person a little amount of EONs, the cryptocurrency that fuels the Exscudo ecosystem. This is a way of monetization for public channels, but also a means of approval for personal and group chats.

What does the blockchain do?

The app is based on the EON blockchain. EON is the proprietary product developed by the Exscudo team. The key feature of this blockchain is that it stores only the data that is needed for the verification by other peers. The personal data and the messages is not saved on the blockchain. Before getting into the blockchain, the data is being encrypted. EON is the fuel for all Exscudo products. Its small size provides for high flexibility and speed. EON uses the DPOS (Delegated Proof of Stake) algorithm to process the transactions quickly and safely. The owners of EON tokens can also set up their own nodes and receive payouts of commissions for transactions within the network.

The Exscudo Channels app and the EON blockchain are planned to be released in Q2 2017. Many advanced features will be added gradually in the following updates, after other elements of the Exscudo Ecosystem are launched. For example, the app will support file transfer, voice and video communications in the later updates.Ebates Coupons and Cash Back
