In our previous posts, we have explained to you the merits of decentralization to make life better across different activities, including supply chain management, document management as well as content sharing and distribution, to name a few.

We have also mentioned how, if you’re convinced about the merits of decentralization, you can support the journey by joining our steering committee of decentralization advocates, by being an active part of…

(We are on a mission to decentralize, and you, too, can support the cause!)

As mentioned in the previous post, the first quarter of 2021 closes the first phase of this journey toward decentralization, with the release of ZooBC. We enter now in the second phase, code-named DecBC.

Churning out ZooBC as something tangible from abstract and ideal concepts required the help of so many in-house experts in an…

Blockchain Zoo started in 2017. From 2017 to the end of 2018, we provided consultancy services for various business clients on how to implement their specific use cases and business models on the blockchain. Throughout the two years, we were customizing open-source platforms and modified them according to each of our clients’ specific needs.

Then, in 2019, owing to our experiences dealing with our different clients and their use…

In my previous article, I addressed the historical origins of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks and consequently blockchain technology, detailing its journey to reach decentralization as we know it today. Now, let us talk about what “today” looks like for blockchain technology and decentralization.

Looking at the current popularity in mass media of blockchain and its most talked about offshoot — Bitcoin — it is interesting to note that in the…

The year 2021 is an exciting time for blockchain technology.

The past two years, and the beginning of this year, have seen significant progress within the context of the 10-year-long journey toward decentralization I have embraced. It has started with the creation of ZooBC, which, after two years of hard work by a team of excellent developers, is finally being delivered. …

We all have heard the recent news about troubles in Wall Street involving GameStop (an American video games and gaming merchandise retailer chain). Their stock was losing value, as people now buy videogames online, downloading them directly from the software house to their gaming console, rather than going in person at a shop.

Large Hedge Funds (offices that invest in the stock market their clients’ money) went short on GameStop stocks (GME). To short a stock means, in simple terms, to identify a stock that is losing value, “borrow” many of these shares, sell them in the market at current…

Hello, blockchainers!
I would love to share with you all an amazing opportunity to get started (technically) with Blockchain: participate in the test of ZooBC, an advanced blockchain platform that is entering its beta phase. After 10 months running in alpha, on 100 nodes managed by us, now is finally ready to be tested by blockchain specialists. With a minimum experience, you can set up and run your ZooBC TestNet node, collect coinbase coins, and test all the functionalities.

Read the funny story of how a hand filled form made me a C2podieci (rather than a Capodieci), and how I saved myself from waiting weeks to get the issue solved, avoiding the process that requires an original signed form to be sent via mail from Indonesia to Singapore just to fix the bank’s mistake and let me use my internet banking.

2018 A.D. — Humans invented computers, we should be in the digital era, yet… forms are hand filled at the bank. Why? I thought it was…

Blockchain is the “thing” of the moment, and the few experts available to consult for ICOs and business models that “requires” blockchain are submersed by requests, daily. Having started in the early days of blockchain, and having built a decent reputation in this field (not for talking about blockchain, but for delivering working blockchain solutions), I am between the selected recipients that gets asked to become a blockchain startup advisor (“we pay you with our own token!”), asked to evaluate a white paper for an ICO, asked to…

There are things that will never stop surprising me. I am a 43 years old geek, always with the latest gadget in my hands, and yet time to time I stop and look at my iPhone thinking how much technology fits in so little space, how mind blowing is an iPhone looking at it with the eyes of a geek from 1990. It looks like magic, yet the best tech magic I have experienced lately, thanks to Bitcoin, is way closer to actual magic!

Haven’t we always dreamed…
