How PrivacyChain could solve one of consent management’s biggest problems

The new privacy blockchain proposal — announced last week by the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s Tech Lab in conjunction with identity resolution provider LiveRamp — could solve one of the biggest problems of consent management.

When a user allows a publisher to use her info for marketing or ads, the consent info is passed via a TCF-suitable consent management platform to vendors who have been approved by the publisher, such as ad exchanges, data management platforms, tag management platforms and so on. But those vendors could share the info with other vendors, or there might be vendors on the web site who got hold of the info without the publisher’s knowledge.

Recently Discovered Bitcoin Vulnerability Is Even Worse Than Previously Thought

The vulnerability in Bitcoin’s implementation (Bitcoin Core) that was revealed earlier this week (on 18 September 2018) is even more serious than previously thought (and reported), and the developers have now revealed the full (and highly disturbing) impact of this vulnerability. The developers say that although they are “unaware of any attempts to exploit this vulnerability”, it is still critical that “affected users upgrade and apply the latest patches to ensure no possibility of large reorganizations, mining of invalid blocks, or acceptance of invalid transactions occurs.”

Blockchain and the GDPR: irreconcilable foes or a partnership with great potential?

At first glance, blockchain and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) may seem like they would be wholly unrelated, complete strangers. But as applications of blockchain expand into the mainstream – payments, healthcare and security, to name a few areas – there are increasing concerns about the (lack of) compatibility between applications of blockchain technology and requirements under the GDPR. Basically, the seeming strangers are quickly developing into potential foes. But are they really that irreconcilable? And what are the advantages of turning these apparent foes into friends – or at least enabling them to coexist?
