Welcome back to Max’s Corner, brought to you by Max Hasselhoff from Bytecoin. With the RSAC taking place in San Francisco this week, we decided it would be fitting to dedicate this version of Max’s Corner to developments in cryptography.
In this guest post, Max Hasselhoff, integration engineer from Bytecoin, takes a look at most interesting developments over the past week, especially if you are curious about the security and safety of the crypto industry.
The so-called Unit-e, developed by the researchers, is cryptocurrency able to process 10,000 transactions per second. It is set to launch in the second half of this year.
