    Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA) announced the establishment of a Technical Steering Committee, that will focus on the EntEth1.0 reference architecture. In addition to the Technical Steering Committee, seven member-driven Working Groups, each driven by blockchain or industry thought leaders were put in place. The Working Groups will work toward delivering specific advancements to the development and use of Ethereum-based technologies in multiple vertical markets.

    According to the press release on July 13, 2017, “The EEA has made the largest commitment to member-driven working groups in the industry focusing on innovative blockchain technologies and applications to solve real-world problems,” said Jeremy Millar, founding board member, EEA. “Many of the blockchain industry’s best and brightest have agreed to contribute their leadership and energy as a chair for an EEA work group. We thank them and all the working group members for their support and efforts.”

    The Technical Steering Committee will provide guidance to the Working Groups producing technical specifications and code, reviewing and approving deliverables from various Working Groups for submission to the Board of Directors, and liaising with other committees to assist with directing the EEA work to the right places.

    Nearly everything which goes through the Technical Steering Committee should manifest as specifications which apply to Ethereum client codebases (i.e. Quorum, pyethapp, STRATO, Nuco, Burrow, etc.) rather than to higher layers, such as applications built on these clients.

    The EEA Technical Steering Committee, Working Groups, and Chairs

    • Technical Steering Committee, Chair: Alex Batlin, BNY Mellon

    • Token Working Group, Chair: Alex Batlin, BNY Mellon

    • Banking Working Group, Chair: Amber Baldet, J.P. Morgan

    What is Flypme?

    Flypme is an account less currency exchange with profit sharing token utilizing the innovative concept of the Ethereum ERC20 Tokens.

    Main feature are -

    • Accountless Exchange- Flyp.me is an accountless crypto to crypto exchange with profit sharing tokens.
      The exchange empowers consumers all over the world to trade their cryptocurrencies for other cryptocurrencies or tokens, while earning a small percentage from fees of each trade.
    • Profits that the token will generate - Flyp.me empowers any FYP token owners to access shares of the profits generated by the platform from fees: a portion of profit fees per trade on the exchange will be distributed to ETH addresses with FYP on a periodical basis.

    • Possibility of vote and governance - The VIP-access platform will be web-based and users with more than a certain number of FYP can access an exclusive website offering additional special features like data analysis, voting for key decision making, new coin pair additions and more to be later disclosed. Flyp.me is the account-less exchange that you can govern.

    • Auditing with cryptography - Providing an ease of use platform where the profits of the exchanges are auditable by FYP token owners.

    Project Overview

    Concept: Crypto to crypto exchange based on Ethereum ERC20 Tokens
    Digital Currency: FYP
    Website: https://flyp.me
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/flyp_me

    Presale and ICO

    The FYP Tokens will be available in two separate rounds, the Pre-Sale and the ICO.

    The Pre-Sale period will start on 10-07-2017 15.00 UTC and will end the day before the ICO starts.

    The ICO period will start on July 21, 2017 around 15.00 UTC for distributing ERC20 Ethereum tokens to represent project profit sharing and will end at latest on Sep 21, 2017 around 15.00 UTC.

    If Hidden-Hard-Cap is reached, the ICO will end 3 (three) hours after the Hidden-Hard-Cap threshold is reached. The exact time for beginning and closing of the ICO period, as for the time of the countdown closing, will be determined in blocks’ numbers of the Ethereum Blockchain. Exact block number for start and end of the ICO will be communicated before the ICO commences. The three-hours countdown when the Hidden-Hard-Cap is reached is counted in 700 blocks.

    Soft-Cap will be disclosed as the ICO goes live.

    Hidden-Hard-Cap will be revealed as soon as it will be reached and will trigger the 3 (three) hours countdown that will definitely end the ICO.

    All token owners will receive proportional profits from the platform, and those with a certain minimum of tokens will have additional benefits such as auditing accounting. All token holders will have the option to propose/vote for features with the stake of their tokens.

    Number of tokens created for the ICO:
    1 ETH = 4000 FYP
    Each Ether collected during the pre-sale and ICO will receive a fixed proportional amount of FYP Tokens, these tokens give access to shares of the profits generated by the platform.
    Currencies accepted for this ICO are BTC, ETH, LTC, DOGE, DASH, FAIR, GAME, DCR, ZEC, SYS, PPC, BLK.

    The final conversion rate from ETH to FYP Tokens will be published on the https://flyp.me website as the presale begins.

    During the Pre-Sale, FYP Tokens will be offered with a minimum of 21% bonus and during the ICO, FYP Tokens will be offered until Soft-Cap is reached with a 10% bonus.

    The total (100%) of FYP Tokens created will consist of the sum of the Pre-Sale ones plus the ICO ones and the ones assigned to the FlypMe Platform itself. The percentage of the FYP Tokens assigned to the FlypMe Platform is variable (as detailed below) and depends by the reaching or not of the Soft-Cap or Hidden-Hard-Cap at the end of the ICO period.

    If Soft-Cap is not reached, 50% of the FYP Tokens will be assigned to the FlypMe Platform and 50% to the Contributors.

    If Soft-Cap is reached but the Hidden-Hard-Cap not, 40% of the FYP Tokens will be assigned to FlypMe Platform and 60% to the Contributors.

    If the Hidden-Hard-Cap is reached, 30% of the FYP Tokens will be assigned to the FlypMe Platform and 70% to the Contributors.

    First ENS community workshop in London

    Nick Johnson from Ethereum foundation, who has been famous lately for Ethereum Naming Services (ENS) has announced the first ENS community-sponsored workshop, which will be held at King’s College London on August 11–13, 2017.

    According to the post published on July 14, 2017,
    participants will explore what can be learned from the soft launch process, discuss future community plans for the Ethereum Name Service, and begin laying the groundwork for a permanent registrar.

    Topics to be covered are:

    • How name registration should function in the permanent registrar.

    • Fee schedules and incentivisation for the permanent registrar.

    • Whether the permanent registrar should feature any kind of dispute resolution mechanism, and if so, how it can function.

    • Possible changes to the root multisig.

    • Integration of ENS with the traditional DNS hierarchy.

    It is a FREE community workshop, however there are some space restrictions, so invitation is required in order to attend. To apply to attend, email Nick Johnson (arachnid@notdot.net).

    All Core Devs Meeting #20

    Ethereum Foundation's core developers meeting was streamed live on youtube. yesterday , July 14, 2017.

    Agenda

    • Metropolis updates/EIPs.
      a. Any "subtleties" or questions we need to work out.
      -Split metropolis into 2 forks? Leave out EIP 86/208 in fork #1.
      b. Updates to testing.
      c. Details and implementations of EIPs.
    1. Updates from client teams.
      geth - ethereum/go-ethereum#14337
      Parity - paritytech/parity#4833
      cpp-ethereum - ethereum/cpp-ethereum#4050
      yellowpaper - ethereum/yellowpaper#229
      pyethapp
      Other clients
    2. Determining gas prices for new opcodes & pre-compiles
      d. Review time estimate for testing/release.

    Main outcomes of the meeting (as reported by Souptacular):

    • Splitting Metropolis into 2 hard forks.
      Part A - Aug / Sep 2017
      Part B - Jan / Feb 2018
      These dates are still entirely guesses and subject to change depending on how testing goes and what EIPs are decided to add to Metro. B.

    • Delaying EIP 86 until Metro HF 2.
      The reasoning is that EIP 86 is a significant change to the underlying way accounts are created and recently there has been extensive discussion (summarized here) about the concerns and challenges of safely implementing it.
      At this point completing the analysis and testing of 86 would delay Metropolis further than necessary, especially considering that the other EIPs that are to be added are nearly all finalized, implemented in clients, and have tests developed for them.
      In short, no other EIP going into metro is reliant on EIP 86 so to make sure Metropolis as a whole goes smoothly we want to give ourselves plenty of time to evaluate the recently discussed issues surrounding EIP 86's design.

    • Likely adding miner block reward deduction to Metro HF 1.

    • Block time estimates calculated today (subject to change):
      22 sec. - end of July
      27 sec. - Aug. 26
      35 sec. - Sept. 27
      45 sec. - Nov. 6th

    • EIP649 (difficulty bomb delay) is planned for HF1.

    • Nick/Vitalik working on EIP 96, 98, and addressing concerns with gas scheduling in 198.

    • EIP for miner reward reduction (will be combined with ethereum/EIPs#669 likely)

    • Put ice age changes in 669.

    • Martin H.S will bring new opcode gas data next time.

    • Parity team to supply benchmarks to compare with Martin's geth ones.

    Why are block times increasing?

    As explained by PoliticalDissidents, "It's the difficulty bomb. Difficulty was programmed to increase exponentially beyond what is warranted to account for increasing hashrate. This means block time keeps getting longer and longer and doing so at an exponentially increasing rate.

    This was designed as a suicide pill for Etheruem as the plan all along was to fork later in the the future (primarily due to a plan to Implement POS) so the difficulty bomb exists to make it so that the current chain will die regardless of if miners want to keep it alive or not because eventually difficulty will get so high that block time will become so long that it's no longer a viable currency to use and it dies off."

    Further details related to this meeting are available at GitHub.

    Aventus Alpha Release on Rinkeby Public Test Net and ICO participation guide

    Aventus is an Ethereum-based decentralized protocol that eliminates uncontrolled resale and counterfeit tickets. It allows event organizers to create, manage and promote their events and tickets with dramatically reduced costs, even letting them set price controls and receive commissions on ticket resales. It also gives ticket buyers rewards for promoting events, and identifying fraudulent activity.
    Alpha Release on Rinkeby Public Test Net

    Aventus announces the release of the alpha product on the Rinkeby public test net on July 13, 2017. Usage instructions here!

    The alpha consists of scaled-back versions of:

    • The event and ticket creation process (including creating both primary and secondary markets, and adding ticket validators to an event);

    • The ticket purchasing process on primary markets;

    • Both the ticket selling and bidding processes on secondary markets;

    • The matching process (whereby bids on resold tickets are collapsed and a bid is chosen for the ticket).

    An announcement next week Monday will be coming that details Aventus first big event trial (2000–5000 attendees) later this year, which will use most of what was released in the alpha.

    Aventus ICO participation guide

    Aventus is gearing up for it's upcoming ICO which starts from July 19, 2017 and will end on July 24, 2017. Recently, they've released their official ICO participation guide.
