The first step towards blockchain interoperability
The crypto world took a giant leap forward this week with Essentia announcing their multi-chain passwordless dAppstore. This innovation has led many to believe the future of interoperability between blockchains and decentralized services is not as far off as originally estimated, here’s why…

DApps are proving beneficial for many industries, but they notoriously lack interoperability. One explanation is that each blockchain requires currency generation to function – and as we know – these currencies, or tokens, are incredibly volatile and any attempts at pegging to a stable currency have fallen short (see Vitalik Buterin – inventor of Ethereum’s – hilarious parody with his WTF coin).
This has meant that dApps largely stand on their own while users have to face the impracticality of purchasing and holding dozens of tokens. Hence, for interoperability to work, a single token which can operate across multiple blockchains is required.

The integrated dApp store solves this problem, the Essentia protocol enables users to integrate dApps onto the platform and access them entirely through the ESS token. The protocol is also accessible through a seed or hardware wallet device, making it possible to login and access +1k of dApps without a single password. As the old proverb goes… “two birds, one stone blockchain”.

Essentia co-founder Matteo Gianpietro Zago remarked that one of the primary motivations behind building the project was to fix the problem of fragmentation in the Web 3.0.

“We now have over a thousand credible blockchain projects in existence. One for decentralized exchanges, another for storage, VPN’s, social media and so on. The problem is, mainstream adoption has been restricted because of the difficulty in accessing and managing these platforms”

Trustless Voting System with a monthly winner

Through a community lead poll, Essentia users put forward dApp integration requests, ensuring the best and most popular dApps gain interoperability. In order to achieve our goal of widespread adoption, we need promote valuable ideas, projects and visions, therefore it must be a contributed effort.

“Innovation requires the ability to collaborate and share ideas with other people” – Bill Gates

We wouldn’t be the first to quote Gates, but he didn’t revolutionize the tech world by mistake. Even here, 20 years ago, he had captured the essence of the collaborative decentralized movement and blockchain economy before it had even begun. The difference is, the Web 3.0 will not burden end-users.

Token economics within the Essentia dAppstore

At its very essence, the ESS token is a utility token. It allows the bearer to use the Essentia platform/framework in a number of ways:

  • Every month Essentia will run a community-wide vote to choose which project to integrate next into the platform. Based on suggestions from both the community and the team, 10 projects will qualify and the top 3 projects will be selected for integration.
  • Votes are cast by ESS holders at a cost of 1 ESS per vote with a limit of XX votes per wallet address. The total ESS earned for that month will go towards the block rewards for stakes and node operators.
  • When staked (locked under specific terms), developers are allowed to upload scripts and dApps into the dAppstore.
  • Developers also earn rewards in ESS tokens based on the usage and popularity of their scripts/dApps
  • The amount staked is lost if it is proven that the script/dApp uploaded was harmful or against good-will.
  • In order to integrate different dApps within your personal launchpad/Essence, you require ESS tokens

Passwordless. Trustless. Endless.

The scale of what can be achieved is enormous and the possibilities are endless. Take what Apple’s App Store did for developers and end-users for instance, the dApp store is merely its logical evolution. With the tide of mainstream adoption nigh, people will be able to operate in an environment without middle-men taking cuts, and without the fear of ownership and privacy breaches.

US Investor Files Lawsuit Against AT&T Over Cryptocurrency Theft

A U.S.-based cryptocurrency investor and entrepreneur has filed a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against telecommunications firm AT&T. Michael Terpin believes that he became the victim of a theft in which a large amount of digital currency was taken from him due to the company’s negligence. Terpin Believes He Was the Victim of a SIM Swap Fraud Michael Terpin has brought legal action against the U.S. telecommunications provider AT&T. The investor and early cryptocurrency advocate filed a 69-page complaint with the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. During the document, Terpin claims that a large number of digital coins and tokens were stolen from him on January 7, 2018. It goes on to state that AT&T are guilty of gross negligence and fraud, which resulted in the loss of a substantial amount of cryptocurrency. According to Reuters, AT&T responded via email to the complaint by stating: “We dispute these allegations and look forward to presenting our case in court.” The filing claims that Terpin was the victim of a SIM swap fraud that was made possible by the negligence of AT&T. Such a scam involves fraudsters convincing a mobile phone provider to switch a user’s phone number to another SIM card which is under their control. Scammers can then use the number to reset login information for various accounts, allowing them to access them. Michael Terpin is the co-founder of BitAngels – an early angel group for Bitcoin investors. He also helped to set up the first digital currency fund, the BitAngels/Dapps fund in 2014. Today, Terpin is one of the Alphabit Fund’s top advisers. According to the court documents, a total of three million digital tokens were taken from Terpin. Back in January, these were worth around $23.8 million collectively. The filing also states that Terpin is seeking an additional $200 million in punitive damages. Whatever the outcome of Terpin’s court case, it illustrates the dangers of keeping large amounts of digital assets anywhere but in properly secured cold storage. The precise details of the storage of Terpin’s tokens are not currently known. However, any solution which could be comprised by SIM swap fraud is evidently not secure enough. Terpin’s missing funds join the other $1.2 billion plus of cryptos stolen from poorly secured storage solutions since 2017. The case also highlighted a need for adequate custody services in the cryptocurrency industry. This is seen by many as one of the most important steps to opening cryptocurrencies to a wider group of investors. Many do not have the technical knowledge required to set up totally secure paper wallets. Others simply shirk the responsibility of being the sole participant responsible for the safety of their digital wealth. The industry is responding, however. Already this year, NewsBTC has reported on efforts by Circle, Coinbase, and Blockchain to facilitate secure storage for large net-worth individuals and institutions. Featured image from Shutterstock.
