Binance, the number one exchange by trading volumes, recently had a system issue, which resulted in downtime that lasted for a couple of minutes. Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, assured users that their funds are SAFU, but some of them are still having trouble accessing the exchange.

Excellent customer support

While some exchanges are trashed for unresponsive customer support, Binance usually excels in this department with CZ himself taking to Twitter to calm down indignant users. This black swan situation was no different given that CZ broke the news before his Twitter was swarming with complaints.
 

However, CZ only vaguely revealed the core of the problem, citing a certain ‘middleware issue’. Hence, some users wanted more clarity.

Has the issue been resolved?

Despite CZ claiming that everything should be back to normal, there are still tweets from traders who are not able to log in to their account or get an email for a withdrawal request. At the time of writing, it seems like they are still experiencing such inconveniences.  

Ensuring safety

Notably, Binance has never been hacked, which gives users a feeling of safety stability. On March 7, 2018, numerous speculations were spreading about a potential hack, but the number one exchange dodged a bullet with this one (hackers actually lost some funds as a result of the phishing attack).

Blockchain is commonly known as an immutable ledger that is impossible to hack, but there is always a looming threat of quantum computers. HCASH Chief Scientist Dr Joseph Liu, who claims that every single cryptocurrency can be hacked in a matter of seconds, has come up with his own coin that won’t be threatened by quantum hackers.

The inevitable quantum takeover     

Quantum computers are generally considered to be the Achilles’ heel of Blockchain-based cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. IBM has already announced its first quantum computer with Google and Intel also working in that direction in 2019.


IOTA, which is powered by DAG dubbed ‘Tangle’, is considered to be the only quantum-proof cryptocurrency on the market, but there could be yet another option – Hypercash that recently presented its post-quantum secure Ring CT protocol.    

‘If you want to use this computer to break the … normal security, it’ll take maybe 500 years to break the system. If you use a quantum computer, maybe several seconds. Hcash is trying to provide security, even in the existence of this future computer,’ – he claims during a recent interview.

A precursor to Monero     

The aforementioned quantum-resistance cryptocurrency is based on Liu’s research paper about a ‘linkable ring signature.’  Fun fact: that paper, which was published back in 2014, was used by the creators of Monero as the basis for the flagship privacy coin.

The Ring Confidential Transaction (RingCT) allows having an external verifier without exposing who that verifier is. Liu didn’t expect the coin to produce any significant impact, but now he is eager to improve the protocol of the billion dollar currency without getting any financial gains.

High hopes for Blockchain

Despite his gloomy prediction about the quantum takeover, Liu is still certain that the future of Blockchain is bright. He is certain that there will be an increasing number of Blockchain-related jobs that will be coupled with growing academic interest in cryptography. There is will be many use cases of Blockchain technology in different spheres of our life.
