As many of you know, CyberMiles has a unique governance structure, a transparent process for voting on on-chain governance issues such as software upgrades, stolen fund recovery, economic parameter changes, etc.
Last month we introduced CommunityVote, a new DApp on CyberMiles’s blockchain that supports community inputs on important governance issues related to The CyberMiles Foundation. With last week’s community vote, re: withdrawing our CMTs from staking (within 10 days), we put that to test — and you made your voices heard.
CyberMiles developed the CommunityVote DApp to allow CMT holders (i.e. the CMT community) to share thoughts and opinions on governance matters. As a community, we work together to make CyberMiles better — a key element for CyberMiles’ community autonomy. Learn more at cybermiles.io.
Last week we launched the Japanese version of our website: cybermiles.io/ja-jp
Wancloud, formerly a CyberMiles validator, recently became “HashQuark.” Part of HashKey Group, a leading fintech group established in Hong Kong, HashQuark now is joining CyberMiles as a witness node, an effort to enhance CyberMiles’ ecosystem.
HashQuark announced a decreased compensation rate of 25 percent for users, although those who voted before for Wancloud may need to hang tight a day or two to enjoy such compensation rate.
HashQuark, deeply involved in the building of a better-enabling ecosystem, has joined a number of public blockchains as one of their Supernodes, thereby working to offer all users greater access to public blockchains and DApps.

One of our very own CyberMilers proudly represented at the University of Southern California last month, serving as a Viterbi School of Engineering mentor and judge during a “blockathon” for talented and aspiring hackers.
The amazing program, the first such at USC, assisted blockchain participants with tutorials focusing on CyberMiles, Ethereum, Hyperledger and IOTA. We’re pleased to be in that company. Learn all about this year’s blockathon at cci.usc.edu.
There have been a lot of predictions on the next great use of blockchain tech. Some have even said that blockchain could be the solution to gun control in the U.S. So what else could the blockchain be used for?
According to CyberMiles’ own Dr. Michael Yuan, “smart business contracts” are the answer.
"Imagine a health insurance claim that automatically pays out as soon as your hospital uploads proper documentation of your illness or surgery. In the same way a real estate deal can conclude once your bank electronically verifies the loan. Smart contract-based applications that immutably, transparently perform routine tasks (like closing on a house) may not only render title companies obsolete, but also represent a significant cost- and time-savings for everyone from loan originators to closing agents."

Tim McCallum, a Core Developer with CyberMiles (and a new contributor to Hackernoon.com), took Hackernoon readers on a deep dive into understanding integer overflows and discovering new, preventative measures.
For non-software developers, Tim’s article makes the math and coding side of integer overflows easy to digest. Software developers also get a chance, though, to deploy their very own (fast, free) smart contract on a blockchain. Check it out, you all.
We know that blockchain technology can add value to a business in a number of ways. ROI Overload spoke with CyberMiles’ co-founder about this topic.
Noting how blockchain can provide value to startups and companies, Dr. Yuan posits the theory that blockchain’s key benefit is in delivering the ability to construct a network for all kinds of businesses. Rather than competing against each other, companies can collaborate and build a system with each business industry having its own chain.

Speaking of Dr. Yuan, BlockPublisher interviewed the CyberMiles co-founder and chief scientist about the state of the crypto market, including alternatives that might help the market grow.
"Due diligence is key. If a crypto project isn’t backed by a strong, bonafide team and a solid business proposition …that can be a red flag."
The BTC ETF is termed to be, for institutional investors and retail investors alike, one of the doors that might help them enter the crypto space by giving them a guarantee for security relating to the market.
"Blockchain is moving from just another IT solution to an ecosystem builder. The strongest potential is those that are building public networks to connect and collaborate with communities outside the organization, as opposed to building another internal asset management system on the blockchain."
Many experts second Dr. Yuan’s stance, re: the adoption of blockchain and how use cases should be explored/new areas should be tapped. CyberMiles itself has brought e-commerce to blockchain, contributing to the bigger cause.
