Proof-of-Stake Isn't Broken - new article in CryptoDaily
Ever since the proof-of-stake consensus algorithm emerged more than six years ago (partially implemented by Peercoin and fully developed in Nxt in late 2013), Bitcoin and proof-of-work maximalists are trying to identify potential loopholes in it. Theoretical scenarios like the nothing-at-stake and long-range attacks have been usually quoted as the biggest threats to the proof-of-stake algorithm opening the door for heated discussions on forums and media outlets. But regardless, the pure proof-of-stake has passed the only viable test - the test of time, and it's been working quite well for years. Read more why that is in practice, the different new variations of proo-of-stake which are available and many more interesting aspects of this issues in the new article by Lior Yaffe in Cryptodaily.

Blockchain para frikis Barcelona - new meetup in Spain
Blockchain para frikis or "blockchain for geeks" is a meetup group in Barcelona with more than 450 members. Recently Francisco Sarrias took over the organization of the group (formerly Ethereum Barcelona group) in order to give people a broader view of the blockchain landscape. The objective of the group is not to focus on the speculative side of cryptocurrenscies but to organize and recommend events of technical content, to increase the understanding of how the different decentralized technologies available in the market are organized and to help people learn how to build applications with them. In the meetup last week the participants have issued an asset on the Ignis child chain of the Ardor platform (Asset ID 15612586090237447901). The token is called BFS and it is meant to incentivize the participation in the meetup activities.
