Podcast Transcript: CryptoAge Obi on Japan’s Regulatory Sentiment and its Growing Blockchain Developers Ecosystem

Checkout our Latest Podcast with Obi In this episode, Joyce Yang from Global Coin Research is joined by Yusuke Obinata, aka Obi, founder of CryptoAge. Obi is deeply involved with the Blockchain community in Japan, and he has been helping multiple US blockchain projects go to market in Japan including Cryptokitties, Quantstamp, and Kadena. Through CryptoAge, Obi organizes frequent, large size developer meetups in Tokyo. He is also the lead organizer of NodeTokyo 2018, the first kind of blockchain developer conference in Tokyo. In this podcast, Obi and Joyce discuss the latest regulatory sentiment towards crypto in Japan, the growing blockchain developers ecosystem and how he advises projects in the US to go to market there. Obi Something interesting thing about Japanese market is that actually a lot of tech enterprises from the big like listed companies to startup interested in Blockchain and most of them have already started working on building something. Joyce Yang Welcome to the Global Coin Podcast. A Podcast where we hear from leading global operators and investors in crypto with their thoughts on the Asia Blockchain and cryptocurrency space. Asia is really a cryptocurrency hub, and understanding the region is as important as understanding what’s going on locally. We also have a newsletter that highlights all the important crypto news coming out of Asia with many translated by our staff directly from the local media. Check it out at [globalcoinresearch.com] I’m your host Joyce Yang and today I am joined by Obi aka Obi founder of CryptoAge. Obi is deeply involved with the Blockchain community in Japan and he has been helping multiple US Blockchain projects go to market in Japan including CryptoKitties, Quantstamp and Kadena. Through CryptoAge, Obi organizes frequent large sized developer meetups in Tokyo. He’s also the lead organizer of NodeTokyo 2018, the first kind of Blockchain developer conference in Tokyo. In this podcast, Obi and I discussed the latest regulatory sentiment towards crypto in Japan, the growing Blockchain developer’s ecosystem and how he advises projects in the US to go to market there. Obi My name is Obi. Yusuke Obinata in Japanese full name, but people call me Obi like Obiwan from Star Wars. I’m based mostly in Tokyo and I’m the founder of CryptoAge which is the Blockchain community for developers in Japan who are excited about crypto Blockchain. I’ve been helping a lot of international Blockchain projects and communities in everything that can be the bridge between them and Japan. So I’ve been helping projects like Quantstamp, OmiseGo, CryptoKitties. I’ve also helped Ethereume foundation to set up the first big meetup which happened in Tokyo back in March which Vitalik and Gavin Wood, Joseph Poon. There were others who came to Japan and we had like 500 people joining us. Joyce Yang That’s really great and I’ve been hearing about you from many different people in the States, who whenever I mentioned I want to try to better understand Japan, they tell me that “you should go meet Obi.” So I’m so glad you’re here on the show and talking to us... Obi Thank you for having me. Joyce Yang Yeah I know it’s great. We love to learn more about what’s going on in Japan and you being here physically it definitely will be very interesting, could you share your perspectives on what’s going on there versus what you’re seeing in the rest of the world. Obi Yes, that’s good. Joyce Yang Yeah. So in terms of crypto and what we’ve seen in the last 6 months in the country, what are your top kind of takeaways for our audience? Obi I think Japan has been like one of the biggest crypto markets in terms of like trading, holding f the Bitcoin and like a general adoption of crypto. So that’s yeah exactly what I’ve been seeing in the past few years. So I’ve gotten into crypto since 2014 when I was working at traditional VC firms investing in Tokyo and Southeast Asia. We’ve invested in a crypto exchange called BitFlyer, we were one of the first investors in 2014. So I’ve seen the market since then and especially until like the beginning of this year, Japan is all about trading and speculation. There haven’t been many developer communities here. Starting from this year, I’ve seen more and more meetups or communities started being formed. And then also, I’ve started one of them and especially in the last 6 months, I’ve seen a huge growth of interest from the developers and also students who don’t really care about the price of the crypto, they’re more interested in the technology and innovative side of the Blockchain. Joyce Yang That’s really interesting. It sounds like you’re saying that the market has really spurred a group of individuals who are very interested in building and developing for the cryptocurrency projects and you’re very involved with that. Obi Yeah. Through CryptoAge, I’ve been hosting meetups for young developers and students at least like once or twice in a month starting fr

OMG Have You Heard About The New OmiseGo Update?!

Not many altcoins went through the bear market and came out looking good on the other side and OmiseGo isn’t an exception. Some have quite simply faded away while others continue on with their projects no matter the token market prices. The team at OmiseGo has done this and has recently updated the community on their latest updates in the ecosystem. In a Medium post yesterday, a quick message was said to send the message that the project is still sticking to its guns and new developers are still being made. The team has moved away from a milestone model stating that “It’s been our experience that the milestone model has led to a cycle of waiting, speculation, frustration, brief excitement upon release, and then recommencement of waiting, with not enough clarity in between.” Instead, they are using a tracker to show the advancements with less time and lists jobs to be finished for each milestone. The end goal is to make the time periods between each milestone not as shrouded and “interminable”. The OMG Network intends to serve as a decentralised exchange. The ecosystem, as it stands, consists of an application interface, eWallet suite, Plasma Blockchain scalability framework, decentralised exchange layer and a proof of stake consensus mechanism. The thought process is that once connected to Ethereum and plasma, users will be able to receive, send and store digital currencies and tokenised fiat on the eWallet software. The medium post added, “We will expand the capabilities of the OMG Network to support additional currencies, working toward a fully currency agnostic exchange.” As said by Ethereum World News, a big part of the ecosystem is Plasma and this layer of 2 scaling solution could introduce a whole new area for transaction speeds to the current blockchain systems which are essentially limited. Plasma takes the pressure off the root chain with a few extra security protocols. DevCon4 is the next venture for the team, however, part of which includes the auditing of the network and plasma integration by Quantstamp, a smart contract company. You can see the two firms interacting on Twitter here: Thank you @Quantstamp for all your hard work and valuable feedback so far! https://t.co/BXoq2jtl6z — OmiseGO (@omise_go) 30 October 2018 What are your thoughts? Let us know what you think down below in the comments! googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1538128067916-0'); }); The post OMG Have You Heard About The New OmiseGo Update?! appeared first on Crypto Daily™.

OmiseGO (OMG) Recovering as Ecosystem Update Posted, Plasma Audit Successful

Few altcoins have survived the bear market of 2018 and OmiseGO has been no exception. Some have simply fallen away while others continue on with their projects regardless of token market prices. The Omise team has done just that, recently updating the community on latest developments in the ecosystem. Yesterday’s medium post serves as a reminder that the project is still sticking to its roadmap and new developments are still being made. The team has moved away from a milestone model stating; “It’s been our experience that the milestone model has led to a cycle of waiting, speculation, frustration, brief excitement upon release, and then recommencement of waiting, with not enough clarity in between.” Instead they are using a tracker to show progress on a smaller timescale which lists tasks to be completed for each milestone. The aim is to make periods between each milestone “less mysterious and interminable”. The OMG Network aims to serve as a decentralized exchange (DEX). The current ecosystem consists of a eWallet Suite and Application Interface, Plasma Blockchain Scalability Framework, Decentralized Exchange Layer, and Proof-of-Stake Consensus Mechanism. The concept is that once connected to Ethereum and plasma, users will be able to send, receive and store cryptocurrencies such as ERC-20, ERC-721, tokenized fiat, and so on using the eWallet software. “We will expand the capabilities of the OMG Network to support additional currencies, working toward a fully currency agnostic exchange,” the post added. Plasma is a big part of the ecosystem and this layer 2 scaling solution could bring a whole new realm of transaction speeds to current blockchain systems which are fundamentally limited. By using child chains Plasma takes the pressure off the root chain with additional security protocols. The team is gearing up for DevCon4, part of which includes the auditing of the network and Plasma integration by smart contract security firm, Quantstamp; Thank you @Quantstamp for all your hard work and valuable feedback so far! https://t.co/BXoq2jtl6z — OmiseGO (@omise_go) October 30, 2018 “Tesuji Plasma is the first iteration of OmiseGO plasma-based implementation. The design is based on Minimal Viable Plasma. Tesuji is currently on our internal testnet. Audits are in progress with Quantstamp and Synthetic Minds” At the time of writing OMG is one of the few altcoins recovering today. According to CMC it is up 3.5% to $3.21. Over the past few months however OMG has suffered the same fate as all of the other altcoins, a big attack of the bears.

OmiseGO Registers Gains Following the News of a Successful Plasma Audit

In a medium post, smart contract security company Quantstamp announced that OMG's plasma audit was successful. Plasma which is part of OMG's ecosystem is a scaling solution which will increase transaction speeds to the blockchain systems that are currently in use. The announcement of the successful plasma audit impacted the OMG price notably. Following the announcement, OMG registered gains of 3.5% to trade at $3.21. The gains were significant since the market is currently stable with coins recording minor price changes.(KE)

Plasma Update #5 - October 8, 2018

## Production This sprint has been focused on getting the Watcher API ready for an internal deployment and end-to-end integration. This includes fixes for bugs encountered when reporting initial deposits in the watcher and when publishing multiple plasma blocks at the same root chain block height. We’ve improved the API for reporting account balances and submitting transactions through the watcher. We’ve also improved performance syncing with the child chain. We’re deep in our audits of the Plasma MVP root chain contracts with Quantstamp and Synthetic Minds. Once we have the results, we’ll report back on any issues they’ve found and how we’re addressing them. We made a fix to the root chain contracts to address an attack vector on how `finalizeExits()` performs on long exit queues when there’s insufficient gas to clear all the exits. We now have the ability to use an `_exits_to_process` parameter so that `finalizeExits` can continue to work in the event of very long exit queues. Speaking of integration: we’re putting the final touches on our first integration library before making that repo and npm module (Node Package Manager, a JavaScript packaging format) public as well. We’ve chosen to use JavaScript for the first library since it’s one of the most accessible and widely-used languages. This is considered an early alpha version; the initial feature set of the library will support deposits into and transactions on the child chain, primarily interacting with the watcher. This library provides the end-to-end infrastructure for integrating an end-user application, from application to library to watcher to child chain. This is good news for the eWallet team too - this release paves the way for their next steps on blockchain integration. ## Research ### Plasma Cash We’ve been working with a few people on some pretty cool research related to Plasma Cash, building off Vitalik’s [atomic swap](https://ethresear.ch/t/plasma-cash-minimal-atomic-swap/3409) and [defragmentation](https://ethresear.ch/t/plasma-cash-defragmentation/3410) work. Part of this research is a simplification of the atomic swap protocol. The other part of this work is a generalization of Vitalik’s idea of using very small denomination coins to simulate fungible assets in Plasma Cash. These designs are currently being cleaned/written up and should be published to ethresear.ch in the next week. We’ve also been tackling the problem of [large histories](https://www.learnplasma.org/pages/research.html#shorter-proofs) in Plasma Cash, which is currently the biggest barrier to using Plasma Cash for large-scale use cases. This is a pretty hard problem, and it seems like we probably can’t solve it in a clean way without something fancy (like maybe [RSA accumulators](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accumulator_%28cryptography%29)). We’re looking into this more deeply right now and will continue to update as we get further. ### RLP Encoding With the help of the community (and [GitCoin!](https://gitcoin.co/)), we managed to bring together a [standardized and tested RLP encoding library for Solidity](https://github.com/bakaoh/solidity-rlp-encode). This makes it possible to [RLP encode](https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/RLP) things inside a smart contract running on Ethereum, which can be useful for certain Plasma implementations. We’re not using this in production (not efficient enough), but we’re making use of it for [More Minimal Plasma](https://github.com/kfichter/more-minimal-plasma), a simplified Plasma MVP smart contract implementation meant to demonstrate exactly how Plasma MVP works. If you’re a developer looking to learn more about Plasma, you should check out the [RootChain smart contract](https://github.com/kfichter/more-minimal-plasma/blob/master/plasma/contracts/RootChain.sol). ## Plasma Implementers Call #15 Notes *The video for this call has not yet been posted - we will update this post with a link once it is available* * More work on Plasma Debit! A detailed specification is in the works and should be published soon. * Atomic swaps are really hard. * Atomic swaps safe from operator griefing are even harder. Griefing is always a potential problem if there’s an information asymmetry. * People are working on figuring out optimal bond prices. This is a very economics-heavy question and depends on a lot of variables. * [Optimistic Cheap Multi-Exits](https://ethresear.ch/t/optimistic-cheap-multi-exit-for-plasma-cash-or-mvp/1893/) are one way to reduce the gas cost of withdrawing funds from the Plasma chain. * There might be a way to derive Plasma Debit from Plasma Cash if there’s a good mechanism for [sibling splits/merges](https://ethresear.ch/t/one-proposal-for-plasma-cash-with-coin-splitting-and-merging/1447). * Some discussion about what will happen if users lose the information necessary to exit, based on [this ethresear.ch question](https://ethresear.ch/t/how-can-a-user-submit-an-exit-if-he-loses-his-proof/3127). It’s l...
