  • The Technical Side of Tezos: Interview with Apps Engineer Martin Pospěch
    • The governance woes of the Tezos Foundation has been heavily covered in the cryptoverse in recent weeks, but little has been said about the practical technical aspects of the Tezos platform. Bitsonline chatted with software engineer Martin Pospěch to learn about what it’s like building apps on Tezos.

The Technical Side of Tezos: Interview with Apps Engineer Martin Pospěch

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

  • Pospěch — a software engineer by trade and a smart contracts consultant — came to Tezos with a background in building systems through Golang.
  • He’s become a strong fan of the smart contracts platform ever since his shift into the cryptocurrency space, and he’s spent the ensuing months building demo apps and writing starter guides for those also interested in making the leap into Tezos.
  • Pospěch went further, explaining why he felt Tezos’ Michelson language provides streamlined precision: – – “Some of the issues with Ethereum (Solidity) arise from the fact that its type system is not robust enough.
  • This is addressed by the Tezos smart contract language, Michelson.
  • To that end, we asked Pospěch about Tezos’ technical community — whether it was scarce like its macro-community, or if it was thriving in its own right.

Introduction to Solidity: ACL and Events. [Part 2]

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

  • Our ACL (Access Control List) contract is going to be inherited by a domain contract and will provide data access controls features.
  • Our assumption is that each user of a contract is an “address” type – address is a special type of variable in solidity that represents your wallet or account address.
  • We can also draw an assumption that the call from an address is authentic as it can only be made if the user has access to the private key of the account, which is the basic premise of authenticity on ethereum.
  • The fact is any data that is there in ethereum blockchain is public in nature, so its doesn’t make sense to create a read-only users, as anyone can see that data, but in case where the data access is encrypted in a way that allows it to be linked to…
  • If we can draw an assumption that with any of those proposals, or through a custom scheme we are able to encrypt our data and we are able to ensure that data access can only be done throughout contract code, then we will find it useful to  create two lists…

How to Use Smart Contracts in Banking?

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

  • As we clarified a bit why traditional contracts are no longer the best option in banking, now, we will focus on how banks can use smart contracts.
  • Smart contracts in the banking industry are easily applicable.
  • Within mortgage loan industry, the lower operational costs of every loan would reduce expenses for banks and cut fee expenditures of the clients – – For insurance deals, smart contracts would bring cost savings due to the reduced – – Today, a few banking startups already make their way in…
  • Even though the benefits of the new technology for the financial sphere is pretty obvious, the future of smart contracts in banking remains unclear.
  • There are several issues left to consider before smart contracts may be widely used in banking: – – When these issues are resolved, we may expect a shift towards blockchain in the banking industry.
