Taurus0X a distributed, open-standard protocol powering decentralized smart derivatives and more.

We are excited to announce and introduce Taurus; an innovative and unique blockchain project born here in Southern California!  Taurus0X protocol is a distributed, permissionless, and scalable, off-chain / on-chain protocol powering asset-agnostic derivative contracts from end to end. The protocol intends to standardize derivative trading and provide a distributed blockchain backend for persisting and executing contracts. Contracts are generated and signed securely offline, and may be transmitted over any network. The protocol leverages multisig contract technology and Elliptic Curve Cryptography in the form of ECDSA to generate and verify digital signatures. The protocol business logic is maintained in a system of smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. The protocol operates in two modes: peer-to-peer and moderated, allowing exchanges and/or...

Preparations for Tezos launch

Tezos foundation sent the following email to It's ICO contributors Preparations for Tezos launch Dear Tezos community, After reaching fundamental milestones in recent months, we are excited to announce that final preparations for the Tezos beta network (“betanet”) are underway. As we approach the launch of the betanet, you will receive additional details via email and on tezos.com. Preparations for the Betanet The Tezos community has been running the alphanet, a test network, successfully for well over a year. Although this provided valuable engineering insight, there is no substitute for real-world experience. To that end, the Tezos Foundation looks forward to the launch of the betanet. Tezos contributors who opt to interact with this network must understand that it will undergo...

Massive Open Online Courses - Introduction to Functional Programming in OCaml #Tezos

  What is OCaml? OCaml is a functional programming exquisite language with an emphasis on expressiveness and safety. The OCaml language  underlies the Tezos protocol. Tezos is a smart-contracts platform that includes a way for the protocol to be upgraded through a governance system. The system is created so that the blockchain can evolve instead of performing hard forks which may lead to transactions not being confirmed by out-of-date nodes. OCaml Strength:  A powerful type system, equipped with parametric polymorphism and type inference. For instance, the type of a collection can be parameterized by the type of its elements. This allows defining some operations over a collection independently of the type of its elements: sorting an array is one example....
