IEEE Software Blockchain Paper Receives Award
By Nir Kshetri and Jeffrey Voas
Published in the July/August 2018 issue of IEEE Software; recognized among the top eight winners of the 2018 Most Influential Blockchain Research Papers by the Third Blockchain Connect Conference Awards.
"E-Voting is among the key public sectors that can be disrupted by blockchain technology. The idea in blockchain-enabled e-voting (BEV) is simple. To use a digital-currency analogy, BEV issues each voter a “wallet” containing a user credential. Each voter gets a single “coin” representing one opportunity to vote. Casting a vote transfers the voter’s coin to a candidate’s wallet. A voter can spend his or her coin only once. However, voters can change their vote before a preset deadline."

Blockchain-GDPR Privacy by Design
By Claudio Lima, Ph.D., Blockchain Engineering Council, BEC Co-Founder; Vice Chair, IEEE Blockchain Standards - July 2018
"The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that was recently approved for implementation in the EEUU by May 25th, 2018 is already creating some controversies, when confronted with emerging Blockchain technologies, regarding what they have most in common: data privacy and protection. These are two are essential areas where Blockchain shines."

Ethereum Plans to Cut Its Absurd Energy Consumption by 99 Percent
IEEE Spectrum - January 2019
The cryptocurrency is going on an energy diet to compete with more efficient blockchains
While mining the cryptocurrency Ethereum consumes a quarter to half of what Bitcoin mining does, the typical Ethereum transaction still uses more power than the average U.S. household consumes in a day. An overhaul of Ethereum’s code in 2019 could lead to more efficient transactions that use just one percent of the energy consumed today.
