Blockchain will reveal new opportunities in different industries
Everyone is now talking about blockchain, a revolutionary decentralized technology that stores and exchanges data for cryptocurrencies. It forms a distributed database with a digital register of the transactions and contracts. Blockchain stores an ever-growing list of ordered records called blocks, each containing a timestamp and a link to the previous block. Blockchain has impressive prospects in the field of digital transactions which will open new business opportunities in 2018.
This technology also uncovers many new possibilities with various applications in various other fields. Due to the growing role of social responsibility and security on the internet, the blockchain technologies are becoming increasingly relevant. In a system using blockchain, it is nearly impossible to forge any digital transactions, so the credibility of such systems will surely strengthen. This approach can become fundamental for disruptive digital business in enterprises and startups. Companies, previously operating offline, will be able to translate the processes into the digital environment completely.
Business needs to account for the blockchain risks and opportunities and analyze how this technology can influence the customer behavior. As the initial hype around blockchain in the financial services' industry will slow down, we will see many more potential use cases for the government, healthcare, manufacturing, and other industries. For example, blockchain strongly influences the intellectual property management and opens new insights in protection from copyright infringement. #datascientist#pythonprogramming#embeddedsystems#learneveryday#arduino#kaggle#edx#github#webdesign#lautechblog#blogger#lifeofablogger#bigbangtheory#google#googlers#microsoft#artificialintelligence
I primarily use @adskeagle at work for designing PCBs. This tool has come a long way since I started using it about 15 years ago.
All of Particle’s hardware (which is open source) is designed on it. If you are eager to learn, they also have a student version available.
I see that KiCAD is becoming a popular tool amongst the open source community. I’ll have to give it a try soon. What has been your experience?
I used a 3D printed hexagon matrix jig to solder the LEDs together. I uploaded the design on thingiverse. Look up “LED matrix soldering jig” if you are interested.
Each LED has a 10 ohm current limiting resistor. A total of 37 LEDs.
Connections are made out of 0.5mm and 0.8mm brass rods from ksmetals.com
