in cryptocurrency •  last year  (edited)

THE CURRENT SITUATION OF THINGS
As the adoption of cryptocurrencies and crypto assets picks up momentum, it’s only natural for hackers and shady fellows to try to find new ways to steal digital assets.

Loss of funds is probably the biggest issue the crypto industry faces.

For mass adoption to occur, and for it to go mainstream, solutions must be put in place to nip the problem in the bud.

This ensures that there is no opportunity for hackers, malware or any form of theft to get through, making sure that users are totally secure.

GOLDILOCK WALLET
This wallet will be compactible with NEO, GAS and NEP-5 tokens, with LOCK (the fuel of the ecosystem) also being a NEP-5 token.
The wallet will run within a web browser that has SSL authentication. Once transactions are completed, Goldilock ensures that the wallet is taken offline. In so doing, it removes the opportunity of hackers gaining access.
-Every wallet will have a uniquely assigned URL
-Every signed transaction will require Two-Factor Authentication.
-When the wallet gets internet access, it does not achieve this via an IP command. It also has PIN/voice verification via the Public Switch Telephony Network. (PSTN)

WHY NEO BLOCKCHAIN OVER OTHERS?
NEO ensures that it is complaint to government protocol. It is focused on enabling a regulatory complaint smart economy. It will also be able to issue and confirm digital identities.

NEO uses an improved version of the Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus mechanism, known as Delegeated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (dBFT).

NEO is also able to process more transactions than it’s competitors. NEO has the ability to process more than 10,000 tps.
