US Air Force prioritizes blockchain security with new Constellation Network contract

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cybercrime/malcode, encryption, military

A blockchain-based initiative from the United States Air Force will employ Constellation’s Hypergraph Network to provide data security with the Department of Defense’s commercial partners.

In a Thursday announcement, Constellation said it had been working with Kinnami Software Corporation to develop an end-to-end data security solution using blockchain encryption and distributed data management for the United States Transportation Command, Air Mobility Command’s 618th Air Operations Center, and a Civil Reserve Air Fleet partner. According to the platform, its goal is to securely exchange data with commercial partners on missions involving the operations of aircraft and ships under contract to the Department of Defense, or DoD.

The United States Transportation Command, or USTRANSCOM, allows authorities — including those in the 618th — to coordinate missions using available resources from both the military and private sector. Constellation Network’s solution may have the potential to improve the existing cybersecurity and general effectiveness.

$25 Million Raised for SENS Antiaging Research Via Pulsechain Crypto Drive

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, life extension

Pulsechain has raised $25000, 000 for antiaging medical research after 5 days of a 14 day fundraiser. You must follow the SENS.org PulseChain instructions. Sacrifices to SENS.org during the sacrifice phase earn 25% less points compared to sacrifices at Pulse.info. SENS.org can also accept stocks and bank wires. Once the sacrifice phase is over, the total sacrifice points for each sacrificer’s address’s points (at the same metamask address) are totaled up across all the supported chains and the SENS.org report. This creates a list of sacrificers ranked by total points from largest to smallest.

SENS Research Foundation has been working to develop, promote, and ensure widespread access to therapies that cure and prevent the diseases and disabilities of aging by comprehensively repairing the damage that builds up in our bodies over time. SENS is redefining the way the world researches and treats age-related ill health, while inspiring the next generation of biomedical scientists. Aubrey dr Grey and SENS have been the leading proponents of repairing aging damage to reverse aging effects. They have been leading the research effort for aging damage repair for over 20 years.

Bitcoin power plant is turning a 12,000-year-old glacial lake into a hot tub

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, energy

The fossil fuel power plant that a private equity firm revived to mine bitcoin is at it again. Not content to just pollute the atmosphere in pursuit of a volatile crypto asset with little real-world utility, this experiment in free marketeering is also dumping tens of millions of gallons of hot water into glacial Seneca Lake in upstate New York.

“The lake is so warm you feel like you’re in a hot tub,” Abi Buddington, who lives near the Greenidge power plant, told NBC News.
