IBM launches a cheaper platform for start-ups to build blockchain projects

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • IBM has unveiled a new blockchain product that lets start-ups and developers build their own distributed ledger projects.
  • Different to the public blockchain network that underpins bitcoin, IBM’s technology only allows a certain number of trusted parties to access it.
  • IBM’s blockchain starter plan is currently in beta testing mode, and is free for developers to use until commercial release.
  • The new plan is perfect for pilot projects and early stage development work for those who want to build solutions on the IBM blockchain platform which currently has over 250 active blockchain networks, Marie Wieck, general manager of IBM Blockchain, told CNBC in an email on Wednesday.
  • Some big businesses are more at ease with the idea of permissioned blockchains like IBM’s as they are designed to be tamper proof and keep transaction data private.

  • About 5 percent of men between the ages of 50 and 59 have low levels of testosterone along with symptoms like loss of libido and sluggishness, according to a few small studies.
  • The Food and Drug Administration approves testosterone gels and shots only for men with levels under 300, including those who have diseases that cause hormone levels to plummet, such as a pituitary tumor or injury to the testicles.
  • The group stated that testosterone therapy should only be given for men who have proven low levels of testosterone and avoided in men who have had a stroke or heart attack within the last six months or who are at high risk for prostate cancer.
  • And just as there are things men can do to boost levels, there are activities that lower testosterone scores.
  • Dr. Bhasin said that the kind of training endured by special armed forces tough exercise, lack of sleep and food can cause testosterone to drop to the levels of men who have been castrated lower than 50.
