E-commerce is arguably the most transformative force in modern retail, to such a degree that just on its own, it’s a $1+ trillion global industry. However, until now, technology has not kept up with the need for faster, more secure and less costly payment systems that e-commerce merchants are hungry for. CyberMiles, a developer of “smart business contracts” for e-commerce, aims to enable a new era in payment technology that will level the e-commerce playing field for all.

The CyberMiles blockchain is supporting an ecosystem that will allow its network to attract a diverse range of participants who will share resources, thereby achieving a truly decentralized network. The network, in turn, will be maintained with the use of CyberMiles Tokens (CMTs).

Because the CyberMiles blockchain is compatible with Ethereum, both distributed applications and smart contracts can transfer to the CyberMiles blockchain without changing any code.

The CyberMiles team, because of this and other reasons, believes that blockchain is moving from just another IT solution to a true ecosystem builder.

CVM is 18,000 Times Faster Than EVM

Looking to build a decentralized ecosystem for e-commerce, CyberMiles designed a virtual machine capable of performing 10,000 transactions per second, an exceptionally high transaction volume that e-commerce requires.

The CyberMiles Virtual Machine (CVM) can complete mission-critical tasks that were impossible (or impractical) to complete on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). CyberMiles technology, coupled with its DPoS consensus mechanism, enables business applications to run much faster and cheaper.

CVM surpasses EVM processing time for computing addition, multiplication, bubble sorting, and the Scrypt algorithm, by 11.5 times, 12.8 times, 199 times and 18,039 times, respectively.

Consider this: Where the EVM takes 35.3 seconds to perform 20 million additions, the CVM takes 3.26 seconds. Where the EVM takes 48 seconds to do 60,000 bubble sorts, the CVM takes 48 seconds. Where the EVM takes nearly 35 seconds to do 10 million multiplications, the CVM takes under three seconds.

Making Scrypt Affordable

Scrypt, which is often required to verify bitcoin transactions, is almost impossible on Ethereum at the present time since it takes 370 million units of gas, which is around 1 ETH below the normal gas price. Even if someone were willing to pay this price, each Ethereum block can only consume 8 million units of gas, which makes it impossible to run Scrypt for a single transaction.

This cost is important, considering e-commerce applications are increasingly accepting multiple cryptocurrencies.

The CyberMiles blockchain incorporates community contributed Scrypt implementations as a module in the CVM that enables anyone to create and deploy enhancements to the CVM.

Ensuring Safety And Cost Controls

To ensure the safety of users’ funds, the CyberMiles blockchain uses a “pre-defense” and “post-recovery” protection mechanism.

To control users’ costs, the CyberMiles blockchain removes transaction fees for the more common functions, without compromising network security.

CyberMiles brings the benefit of a single, large e-commerce network that is maintained and validated by a community of trusted peers. The decentralized ecosystem will allow small businesses and consumers alike to realize a substantial amount of savings and profit and be able to know where the funds they have used or invested end up.

E-commerce businesses, for their part, will have access to a large network of buyers and sellers who can use CMT for their own in-app transactions and participate in loyalty programs.

CyberMiles is leading the way into a new, decentralized era for e-commerce that will truly democratize payment and transaction capabilities.

Former Goldman Sachs Exec Launches Crypto Startup Amid Bear Market

Although many are enamored with bashing the colloquial term “BUIDL,” for many Bitcoin diehards, 2018’s crypto market lull has been a time to unironically bolster this industry’s underlying infrastructure. This isn’t just hearsay, as 2018 has arguably been crypto’s strongest year yet, in terms of promising products, platforms, and startups, rather than day-to-day price action. Some of the world’s largest corporations and financial entities, such as the Intercontinental Exchange, Citigroup, Nasdaq, Microsoft, IBM, and Goldman Sachs, have all instituted crypto-centric initiatives. Yet, while these efforts are undeniably valiant, there remain entry barriers for a majority of keen parties, which curtails the growth of this industry. This issue isn’t flying under the radar, however, as startups have continued to crop up, seemingly in a bid to usher household names into this embryonic ecosystem. Meet Peter Thiel-backed Tagomi Peter Thiel, the head honcho of the so-called “Paypal Mafia” — ex-Paypal executives turned hotshots in Silicon Valley and Wall Street — has long been open to the concept of Bitcoin. On multiple occasions, Thiel, an advocate for libertarian principles, claimed that Bitcoin could become a hedge against economic downturns. So, it should as no surprise that his illustrious venture capital group, the San Francisco-based Founders Fund, has made notable capital allocations into crypto startups. As reported by NewsBTC in early-May, one of the fund’s allocations into this industry took the form of a multi-million dollar financing of Tagomi, a little-known firm at the time, with not much more than an ambitious vision. Now, over half a year since Tagomi secured Thiel’s rare stamp of approval, the startup has put its grandiose plan into action. On Monday, Tagomi, potentially slated to become the Fidelity Investments of the cryptosphere, launched its prime broker-dealer services — purportedly the first of its kind. For those who missed the memo, the startup is primarily focused on executing large orders for its bigwig clients. Speaking with Bloomberg, the upstart’s co-founder, Greg Tusar, and other key executives explained how its system operates. Tagomi takes advantage of its access to an array of exchanges to produce a liquidity pool, easing slippage for gargantuan block orders, while ensuring that transparency and proper trade reporting is upheld. Tusar, a former Goldman Sachs magnate, explained that there currently are pertinent issues plaguing crypto-friendly high net-worth investors today, namely custody, security, and a lack of liquidity. He stated: “The current environment is challenging, for sure, but we think there’s a lot of longer-term demand for digital assets and helping clients understand the transformative impact of crypto and blockchain.” In a separate interview with The Block, Tusar alluded to the fact that Tagomi is, or is aiming to, fill that gaping hole in this industry, and quick. He explained that there hasn’t been a single platform that has shepherded clients from depositing fiat, deciding on an investment thesis, allocating capital to cryptocurrencies, securing holdings, and all the way to managing these investments for the long haul. This is, of course, where the Peter Thiel-backed entity aims to come in and lend a helping hand. Institutions Look To Buy The Crypto Dip This launch of this innovative platform only underscores the fact that institutions see value in cryptocurrencies, but have resorted to staying on the sidelines due to the blockades that remain. Still, a number of startups backed by well-known institutions, like Fidelity and TD Ameritrade, have aimed to solve this problem.

Fidelity, for instance, recently launched a crypto-centric subsidiary — Fidelity Digital Asset Services (FDAS) — after downing the Bitcoin red pill in 2014, when the firm’s launched its in-house blockchain research group. FDAS has its eyes on becoming a spiritual successor of its parent, but specifically in the context of crypto. More specifically, the fledgling arm has ambitions to launch top-notch cryptocurrency custody, coupled with trade execution for Fidelity’s 13,000 institutional clients. Similar moves from Bakkt, which has close ties to the parent of the New York Stock Exchange, and ErisX, a similar offering funded in part by TD Ameritrade, have again, only accentuated abounding institutional interest for digital assets. But the question that remains on everyone’s mind is — who will be the one to capture that demand?
