The Rise of Decentralized Exchanges in 2018

Rise,Decentralized Exchanges,2018

The cryptocurrency market has evolved several times since bitcoin first dawned upon the world. In the beginning, bitcoin was nothing more than a hobby for curious developers, who managed to gather enough information from the corners of the internet on how to be ‘miners’ of this fringe technology. By letting their processors chew on bitcoin’s algorithm for a few hours, they might have collected anywhere from tens to hundreds of then near-worthless digital coins. Those who played around with bitcoin in its infancy came up with some novelty ways to spend them, with the most famous example being the unwitting gentleman who spent 10,000BTC on two large pizzas. At the time, the most impressive thing about his achievement wasn’t the amount of bitcoin he spent, but that he found someone to accept it as payment.

When exchanges were introduced into the cryptocurrency arena, interested parties could simply buy bitcoin with their dollars or euros, instead of mining it (or selling pizza). Humans being humans, the opportunity to speculate on bitcoin’s future value using ‘real’ money was irresistible, and it unleashed a pivotal new dynamic on the young market. Even at a price of $0.01, the pizza buyer still overpaid for his dinner by about $60.00. Imagine how he felt when bitcoin hit its 2011 high of $32.00! Then, visualize his pain last December, when that fateful dinner represented an opportunity cost of $190 million. Anyone can empathize with this example. The crippling emotions that bitcoin can inspire in investors is courtesy of exchanges exclusively.

Prepping a New Paradigm

Exchanges are a puzzlingly hypocritical way of spreading the word about cryptocurrencies, and even so, the word itself doesn’t harmonize with the technology’s true message. Cryptocurrencies have power beyond the fiat returns they can attain for a savvy investor—they are also the utilities of the future. Regardless, exchanges make them out to be nothing more than pseudo stocks, or informal equity in blockchain-based startups. Even for trading and investing, centralized exchanges also fall short on many fronts.

All the most popular outlets provide wallets for their members, who need to store and transfer their various currencies, but any real enthusiast knows that on the blockchain, one’s coins aren’t safe unless they control their own private key. Unfortunately, all centralized exchanges hold the private keys of their users in isolated servers, which act as single points of weakness. To shore up their defenses, these exchanges also force users to endure annoying downtimes, which affect the 24/7 market significantly.

This already represents a significant risk as any centralized exchange that ceases to exist (for any reason) will take the coins of its members with it into the void. Other issues with the centralized exchange model concern efficiency, such as the fact that they don’t universally accept fiat money, and neither do they all list the same coins. Finding the optimal venue to invest and identifying the best investments requires a lot of legwork, due to the low level of interoperability present in the existing paradigm.

Aside from these functional flaws, and perhaps because of them, centralized exchanges are also susceptible to hacking and breaches, like in the cases of Mt. Gox and Bitfinex. It’s clearly time for blockchain to produce a new status quo, and one that doesn’t infringe on the basic idea of a decentralized economy. Many believe that 2018 will be the year that the best proposal—decentralized exchanges—gains critical mass.

A DEX Future

Decentralized exchanges (DEXs) are a step up from their centralized counterparts in almost every regard. Not owned or controlled by any single entity, they are run on the collective power of a decentralized network of participants. Therefore, they cannot be taken down by hacks, and suffer no downtime as they’re distributed over a variety of disparate hosts. Moreover, users hold their own private keys, meaning that their funds are safe regardless if the exchange is thriving or if it has imploded like a dying star.

DEXs fulfill the original promise of bitcoin, in that users act as their own personal bank, and have complete control and responsibility for their money. They also offer greater liquidity, due to their ability to sync with other platforms and leap over the regulatory boundaries that keep centralized exchanges in their own sterilized bubbles. Blockchain startups that have successfully launched an ICO can immediately list their project’s token on a DEX, without dealing with the strict rules imposed by the exchanges operating under the government’s thumb.

With volume taken from a greater variety of sources, and a richer array of cryptocurrencies to invest in, new and interesting blockchain tokens get more exposure. Young, promising cryptocurrencies such as HoToKeN can spread their benefits around the world more easily—in this case promoting healthy relationships between retailers and their best customers. By paying out HTKN that is redeemable in stores as a reward for small advocacy missions on social media, brands create value for themselves and gain loyal customers as well.

Missions might be something like answering a questionnaire, playing a mini-game, or writing a review, which many individuals already do for free. Consumers around the world would jump at the chance to obtain flexible discounts on their favorite restaurants and shops, without having to restrict themselves to platforms like Groupon or Shopee. Decentralized exchanges by extension can help satisfy this demand.

Fully Decentralized Markets

Currently, governments can keep a lid on cryptocurrency if they wish to. They can mandate that banks refuse deposits and withdrawals to known exchanges, force ISPs to block certain websites, and more. However, decentralized exchanges are an effective shield against this behavior. The days of fiat money are numbered as people will soon be able to participate in an array of beneficial decentralized services without the necessity of their wallets. Not only will this help bitcoin to maintain its position as the foundation of the crypto economy, it will also give newer coins more room to grow. Like any decentralized service, the number of users is crucial, but such a strong value proposition means that the best decentralized exchanges are unlikely to encounter a scarcity of willing participants.

Nokia’s Android Tablet with massive 18.4-inch display spotted on GFXBench

Nokia tablet with massive 18.4-inch display, Snapdragon 835 processor spotted on GFXBench

Rumored 18.4-inch Nokia tablet with Android Nougat 7.0 surfaced on GFXBench

HMD Global has plans to launch a high-end Android Nokia-branded tablet with an 18.4 inch display this year, reveals a listing by the popular benchmarking site, GFXBench.

According to the benchmark listing, Nokia’s upcoming tablet will feature an 18.4” display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440) resolution that results in a pixel density of 160 pixels per inch. The Nokia tablet will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor running at 2.2GHz and will have Adreno 540 GPU. In terms of memory, it will include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

On the imaging front, the rear camera will have 12MP primary camera at the back that can record 4K videos. Also, the front-facing camera will be 12MP, which too can record videos of 4K resolution. The rumored tablet will be loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. Also, it appears that the software is being developed by FIH Mobile, a Foxconn subsidiary. In addition to the 4G LTE connectivity, the upcoming Nokia tablet will be equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC.

The Nokia 18.4-inch tablet could possibly be announced next month at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, where HMD Global will be announcing the first Nokia-branded Android devices meant for the global market. The company has already unveiled the Nokia 6 recently, meant for the Chinese market exclusively.

There’s no mention of pricing and availability but being on the benchmarking site. It is not the first time we are looking at a Nokia tablet leak, as there were earlier rumours about Nokia D1C being a tablet with a 13-inch display. Therefore, you should only accept these surfaced specifications with a pinch of salt.

Teclast Tbook 16 Pro, the best in class Windows 10 + Android tablet

Teclast Tbook 16 Pro, the best in class Windows 10 + Android tablet

Want a dual-boot tablet which has both Windows 10 and Android, try out Teclast Tbook 16 Pro

Summary: I dare say that this little laptab has grown on me over the past two weeks. It’s a solidly-constructed, inexpensive tablet that works both on Android and Windows 10 and serves me well for web browsing, light word processing, and media consumption. The Teclast Tbook 16 Pro Android Pro is good for gaming because of its 4GB RAM.  It also gets a pretty good screen for the price. 

Rating: 4.0 / 5   Price range: $209.99

THE GOOD

Solid Build quality; Long Battery Life; Good Screen; Soft-touch finish; Good for Dual use; Inexpensive

THE BAD

Limited internal memory, No rear camera

My View

With tablets gaining traction world over and outdoing laptops in sales, Teclast has come up with a good product to lure both laptop owners as well as tablet aficionados. Much like the tablets they have mostly superseded, these inexpensive 2-in-1s, popularized by the Asus T-series, are aimed mostly at casual content consumers.

Teclast is a Chinese tablet maker which specialises in tablets looking to appeal to the low-end market. Long skilled at producing “shan zhai” knockoffs of famous brands for domestic consumption, they are starting to market their own inexpensive takes on the 2-in-1 convertibles and ultrabooks overseas.

At $209.00 Tbook 16 Pro definitely is worth a second look because it can address your genuine laptop needs with its Windows 10 mode while letting you have the fun of a Android tablet.

TBook 16 Pro Specs

Screen 11.6-inch 1920 x 1080 px FHD 10-point capacitive IPS screen
Processor Intel Cherry Trail X5-Z8300 64bit Quad Core 1.44-1.84GHz)
Graphics Integrated Intel HD Graphics 8
Memory 4GB
Storage 64GB eMMC 4.51 – microSD card up to 128GB
Connectivity Broadcomm Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0
Ports USB, microSD card reader, micro HDMI, 3.5mm audio, DC-in (12V)
Battery 8000 mAh (about 8-9 hours of solid use)
Operating system Windows 10 and Android (in different containers)
Size 29.00 x 18.10 x 0.48 cm / 11.42 x 7.13 x 0.19 inches
Weight 1.435 kg
Extras Gravity sensor, front-facing 2MP camera, steroid speakers, integrated microphone,

Teclast TBOOK 16 Pro is a new tablet from the Chinese Tab maker Teclast. The USP of TBook 16 Pro is its dual-boot system which gives users the fun of both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 and its massive 8000 mAH battery.

Want a dual-boot tablet which has both Windows 10 and Android, try out Teclast Tbook 16 Pro

Among the first things you notice in Tbook 16 Pro is the sleek design. The tab has an 11.6 inch display with wide bezels in plastic. The Tab has a metal back so it seems a bit heavy. The Tbook has a great IPS screen with 1920×1800 resolution. The display is both vivid and colorful because it is powered by Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 64bit 1.44 GHz Quad Core processor and runs on 4 Gb of RAM. This means that you can play in all Android games which you want, without any lags. Tbook 16 Pro runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop  and Windows 10 but runs smoothly in both the systems due to its powerful processor. However its a bit low on internal memory. This causes problems as you have to install same Apps twice on the Tab like Google Chrome. Once in the Android container and once in the Windows 10 container.

Want a dual-boot tablet which has both Windows 10 and Android, try out Teclast Tbook 16 Pro

Imagine , you are having a normal Android tablet, with big screen, with all those things for which we love these devices and after connecting a keyboard and switching operation system to Windows, we are getting a great, portable netbook for tasks which are possible to be done only in Windows, and 4GB of RAM let you do it easily and fast.

Want a dual-boot tablet which has both Windows 10 and Android, try out Teclast Tbook 16 Pro

Tbook 16 Pro has a single front 2.0MP camera which is enough for video chatting. I dont expect you taking selfies with a 11.6 inch tab anyway. It has USB 3.0 and HDMI slots, it allows us to share files, videos, connect different devices, and to mirror screens on bigger TV or to share the picture with other tablets. It can support Excel, PPT, Word, PDF, Power Point, TXT, Word, with a help of Windows system.

Want a dual-boot tablet which has both Windows 10 and Android, try out Teclast Tbook 16 Pro

Tbook 16 Pro has a massive 8000mAh battery which is best in class for such tabs. Given that Tbook 16 Pro is a dual-boot tab, the 8000mAh battery can last for two days without any problem.

Final thoughts

I dare say that this laptab has grown on me over the past two weeks. The solid construction, soft-touch coating, and small size make it easy to just grab the Tbook 16 Pro every morning by hand and take it with me to work. It is neither expensive nor fragile, so you don’t need to worry about a case, and the battery lasts more than all day.

The only issues I had with Tbook 16 Pro was its limited internal memory which can be a real pain in the ass considering that we live in a data intensive world. The battery is super and can last a full day without drawing a sweat but I miss the old fashioned rear camera.

As it is, it’s a solidly-constructed, inexpensive convertible that serves well for web browsing, gaming, word processing, and media consumption (with headphones). It’s worth considering if you already have a main computer and you’re looking for something to carry around with you for casual work or surfing.

The tab is perfect for those who carry their heavy laptops to schools or while traveling. It fits perfectly in the knack sap and not that heavy compared to a laptop. The only issue I had with Tbook 16 Pro is that it has only 64GB internal memory. 64GB is too less in this day and age. Teclast has given microSD expansion slot for extra memory but that is also limited to 128GB.

Other than that I liked Tbook for its smooth performance both in Windows 10 and Android mode and also for its massive battery. As far as the price is concerned, Teclast Tablet’s are always at cheaper rates without compromising on the quality. Gearbest is holding a flash sale for Teclast Tbook 16 Pro tabs at $209.99 for a limited period.

Why Users Switch Back To Android Smartphones From iPhones

Why Users Switch Back To Android Smartphones From iPhones

Reasons why Android smartphone users go for iOS and then come back.

iOS vs. Android has always been a burning topic for debates all over the internet. There are numerous users who have changed their Android smartphone with an Apple iPhone and later regretted their decision. In this article I’ll point out the reasons for which Android users switch to iOS and the problems they face after it.

Okay! First lets discuss about exciting features of Apple devices:

1. Retina Display

A display having pixels density more than 300 PPI(Pixels Per Inch). Apple used the term “Retina Display” for its such displays. It was said that the visual quality offered by retina display will be beyond amazing. It is true, whether you’re watching a movie, playing a game, reading a document or doing any task with your phone, the display will make working with your Apple device a visual delight.

2. Smooth Operation

Yes! This is definitely an attractive “feature” of Apple phones and tabs. When we compare an Android device and an Apple device having similar hardware( RAM size, Processor cores etc), we quickly find out that Apple device performs far much smooth than the Android device. Android users can be seen often complaining about how installing a new game converted their phone into a brick, Apple users seldom face such situation.

3.Camera

The camera of Apple devices is always ahead of the time. That said, an Apple phone or tab having a camera of specific megapixels will always beat the Android phone or tablet having same megapixels. Thanks to the big aperture of the camera lens, decent extra features and better image processing offered by Apple.

This is not it. The list is pretty long but I’ve mentioned the major factors only. Now lets have a look at what actually comes along these features which we get for paying large amount of extra money.

1. No Expandable Memory

Actually it is expandable on iCloud only. And since Android users get used to having an option of increasing the memory just by buying an SD card, it is not easy for them to handle this surprise. So, they have limited memory, the additional stuff can be put on iCloud, which is a paid service itself.

2.Nothing can be Customized :

Customization is almost nothing in Apple phones when compared with Android ones. Google works extensively on its UI to make it attractive and flexible at the same time. Users can personalize their phones on drag-n-drop basis. Although Android devices too have some restrictions but the extent is very different between these two.

So, if you want the freedom to change things at a level similar to Android, you’ll need to jailbreak your Apple device.

3.The Sliders are Annoying:

If you need to lower brightness in your Android, you just open the brightness status bar and put your thumb to the desired place and the brightness is set to that level. But in Apple you have to put your thumb on the slider and then slide it to the desired position, this is damn irritating for an ex Android user.

4.Price is always Sky High:

And no one knows why Apple never worked on providing affordable phones to its users. And the price always depletes to its half in two years. Most of the iPhone lovers are seen to buy an iPhone just after two or two and a half years after its launch.

Well, these were the points one needs to keep in mind while switching. Above all Apple phones and tabs are amazing in their quality. And Android is affordable yet amazing. We invite your suggestions on the topic. You can give your feedback in the comments below.

The World’s First Ubuntu Tablet That Can Also Be Converted To A Desktop PC Is Here

The World’s First Ubuntu Tablet That Can Also Be Converted To A Desktop PC Is Here

Canonical announces BQ Aquaris M10, the First Ubuntu tablet that can be converted into PC

Canonical, the company behind the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu Linux, officially announced on February 4, 2016, the world’s FIRST Ubuntu tablet, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition.

Built by Spanish OEM BQ, the 10.1-inch tablet runs the latest Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system, which can be easily converged into a personal computer when connecting to an external LCD, keyboard, and mouse – the first such device to do so.

Canonical say the M10 is ‘the first in a series of converged devices’, suggesting that there would be more hardware announcements in the near future.

Jane Silber, Canonical CEO in a statement said: “We’re bringing you everything you’ve come to expect from your Ubuntu PC, now on the tablet with BQ, soon on smartphones. This isn’t a phone interface stretched to desktop size – it’s the right user experience and interaction model for the given situation. Also, in terms of applications, we have something no other OS can provide: a single, visual framework and set of tools for applications to run on any type of Ubuntu smart device.”

Later this month, the company is to showcase the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet at Mobile World Conference in Barcelona alongside new community ports for Sony, OnePlus and Fairphone handsets.

The M10 is the first device to deliver on Canonical’s vision of the future of computing: convergence.
Apart from offering an Ubuntu convergent experience, Aquaris M10 is the first tablet running on Ubuntu Linux.

Here are its specifications at a glance:

• A 10.1-inch IPS touch display with HD 1920×1200 pixel resolution at 240 ppi
• 64-bit MediaTek MT8163A 1.5GHz quad-core processor
• 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, approximately 11GB is available for use
• MicroSD slot (up to 64GB)
• 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, FM Radio
• 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and dual flash, plus a front facing 3-megapixel camera for video chats, vlogs and selfies
• Front facing Dolby Atmos speakers
• Micro HDMI port
• 7,280mAh Li-Po battery, upto 10 hrs of use
• Measures 246mm x 171mm x 8.2mm, and weighs just 470 grams

Ubuntu makes multitasking and windows management easier. It brings a full range of desktop applications and thin client support for productivity and mobile. It not only allows to manage applications easily but also get the advantage of integrated services with desktop notifications.

Convergence makes file browsing and file and folder management much easier, according to Canonical. As you switch the interface, the responsive applications detect the point/click input and re-shape according to the UI. “Also, in terms of applications, we have something no other OS can provide: a single, visual framework and set of tools for applications to run on any type of Ubuntu smart device,” says Silber.

“We’re not out to win the tablet market. We want to win the reinvention of the PC experience. Today, the PC, tablet and smartphone markets are not really different things. It’s what we’re doing on our devices that’s important. By providing one code base for all devices, our view of convergence will make it easier to deal with blurring of form factors”, she continued. OEMs and programmers will be able to create customized interfaces and applications with the fragmentation that has bedevilled the Android market, she added.

The similar convergence approach is also being pushed forward by Microsoft in the form of Windows 10, which was launched last July. It is showing us what it’s trying to achieve with Continuum.

About this competition, Silber says, “We share a vision with Microsoft. I think they have a very similar view of what’s happening in the personal computing space.” She adds: “On the one hand it’s competition, on the other hand it’s reinforcement.”

Currently, there is no information on the pricing yet. However, the price is expected to be somewhere around the $250-260 mark. The Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet will be on sale from Q2 2016 via BQ’s online store.
