About Lureds Blockchain

3 years of

professional experience

At the beginning of 2017 we started to research, invest and investigate in blockchain space. At the time we saw blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies real potential and impact in the future and its real world use cases. Since then we have gained tons of experience and knowledge to operate on the blockchain space. In that on mind we have created Lucreds Blockchain website to help others to operate on the field.

Blockchain Technology

Top 6 pros

Blockchain technology is not a silver bullet.

Ask yourself, how does it improve you?

Security & Immutability

Trustless - you don't have to trust anybody except math and computing principles. Decentralized - No single party is responsible for security, the whole network is.

Provenance

Provenance is definition of tracking, each transaction is logged, which can be taken as digital footprint that cannot be changed. However you can track every step that asset or transaction has done.

Consensus

A consensus algorithm is a procedure through which all the peers of the Blockchain network reach a common agreement about the present state of the distributed ledger. Essentially, the consensus protocol makes sure that every new block that is added to the Blockchain is the one and only version of the truth that is agreed upon by all the nodes in the Blockchain.

Decentralization

A decentralized network is a “trustless environment,” where there is no single point of failure. The nodes connected in the network are not dependent on a single server point and each node holds the entire copy of the network configurations. As the information never passes through a single server, which makes a decentralized network highly secure.

High Availability

One of the corner stone for blockchain. It's not possible to just shutdown the network. It's global, permissionless infrastructure that everybody can use, like radio or internet.

Finality

Once transaction is done, it will stay there forever, which gives us ability to do business with people you don't trust.

Different network types

Centralized vs Distributed vs Decentralized

What’s the difference?

Decentralized

Decentralized systems run completely without a central point of authority and  control. Instead it is up the network to make it own decisions regarding what  is true and false and thereby control itself.

A decentralized system is more democratic than a centralized system because  there is no central authority, instead the system is controlled by its users.

Distributed

A big hosting company can be an example of a distributed computational  network. They probably have servers all around the world serving their customers and splitting the workload among them. All the traffic doesn’t go through a single server like in the centralized network, but all the decision making, authority and control is still maintained at the core of the hosting company.

Centralized

In a centralized computing network, all the calculations are done on a  particular computer/server. This is for example a classic web server running on  a basic computer. A centralized system can be easier to run and maintain with central authority that controls it. It’s more vulnerable for take downs and hacks, because it has one central server that controls everything.

Bitcoin uses the blockchain to store information about transactions of bitcoin  between people. Every transaction is linked to previous transactions in the  blockchain, utilizing the linkage between the blocks.  

By letting an entire network handle security, there is no central point of attack  for hackers in order to get hold of passwords or private keys. Instead we create  a network of huge redundancy where it doesn’t matter if a few nodes in the  network gets taken down, the network would still be secure. With that being  said, we can’t have too few nodes securing the network either as that would  increase the risk of for example a 51% attack, which you will learn more about  later on.

The public key allows users to receive bitcoins. Many people believe that the  bitcoin address and the public key is the same. This is not true, but the are  related on a mathematical level. Because the public key is so long (65 bytes),  the address is a shorter, hashed version of the public key.

The public key is created using the private key and the public key is then used  to create the bitcoin address. 

The private key is used to sign transactions and is what allows bitcoins to be  spent. Therefore it is of importance that the private key is kept secure at all  times and not shared with untrusted parties.

A private key is always mathematically related to the public key and the  bitcoin address, but because of the strong encryption it is practically  impossible to reverse-engineer.

If you lose your private key, it is impossible to access your bitcoin wallet and  send funds.  

Networks like bitcoin are completely driven by market forces. Which means that the miners usually will pick the transactions with the highest transaction fees. That’s because those transactions would give the miner the most profit from their work.

When the mempool grows the transaction fees go up. This is because there is  a larger competition to get your transaction into the next block. Large  mempool leads to long waiting times and some people are willing to offer  larger transaction fees to the miners in order to get their transaction picked  first. The mempool is really only an open marketplace, where people compete  around who’s transaction is going to be picked first.

Frequently asked questions

The most popular

questions

Ethereum uses the blockchain to store information about the applications  running on the network. The blockchain network keeps track of the execution  of code and what states all the applications are in.

When you have control over your private key you have total control over your  coins. When you store your coins in any other way you hand over final control  to a 3rd party. Many people use online wallets and exchanges to store  cryptocurrency. This puts their private key in the hands of the corporation  running the site and exposes their keys to greater risk of hacking and fraud.

There are also security risks when storing your own private keys. Make sure to  store them on a hardware wallet or some other cold storage option for  maximum security. 

A full node holds the entire blockchain while a SPV only holds parts of the blockchain. In short, SPVs validates their own transactions without worrying about anybody else’s transactions. This may sound problematic, because their is a chance that a block is invalid. But almost never a problem in reality, because SPVs are connected to many different nodes that can make sure that we all agree on the same chain of blocks.
