The past few years was an outstanding year for cryptocurrency. Hundreds of projects had received funding, innovation was pushed to the limit, and a plethora of bright minds were attracted to the space. This rise of cryptocurrency and subsequent attention brought to blockchain technology has prompted nearly every industry to evaluate the benefits of integrating the technology into their operations. One such firm at the forefront of blockchain innovation is MULTIVEN
Multiven is the world’s first and only provider of independent, decentralized and politically-neutral software integrity maintenance and cyber-defense services for all the block-chain nodes and hardware that make up the world’s internet network. By offering service-as-a-utility, powered by its elite team of Internet experts, security researchers, cryptographers and its artificial-intelligence engine, mySolvr, while leading consumer advocacy that ensures customer choice and value, Multiven is realizing its mission of making the Internet globally available, reliable and affordable for all mankind. The Multiven platform was launched in 2005 and gained Lucent Technologies as its first large customer in 2007. Between 2008 and 2014 various legal battles took place regarding Cisco which eventually favoured Multiven.
The Multiven HQ relocated to the Netherlands in 2015, and a Paris based sales office was launched in 2016. During development of the Multiven marketplace was initiated.
The Internet is the infrastructure upon which all Blockchain traffic traverses. Accordingly, its availability, reliability and security to all cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications cannot be over-emphasized.
Technologies associated with Multiven
There are several interrelated strings to Multiven’ s bow. The main ones are:
Multiven Open Marketplace
The Multiven Open Marketplace (MOM) will be a blockchain based marketplace for buying and selling IT-based products and services. Based on smart contracts, it is a P2P marketplace that involves no third parties. The only currency of exchange and for financing blockchain transactions will be MultiCoin. Multiven anticipates that transactions processed in MOM will grow rapidly:
· 2019 — $300,000,000
· 2021 — $30,000,000,000
· 2023 — $90,000,000,000
Monitoring cryptocurrency nodes
70% of the world’s internet routers and switches are manufactured by Cisco Systems and are run using Cisco IOS, thus out of every 10 Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency nodes, seven are controlled by Cisco. However, given that these nodes are concentrated geographically, around 90% of them are Cisco controlled.
This presents a potential vulnerability to attack, possibly exploiting a network backdoor. Multiven aims to monitor in real time and defend every cryptocurrency node and their internet gateways as a free service.
Nodes in Orbit (NiO)
Multiven plans to create space-borne networking platforms, and platforms that can defend themselves against threats, both natural and human. It is planned to launch nine such nodes into Earth orbit by 2022.
Mapping the internet
Already Multiven has mapped over 1.5 million networked devices including their geolocations and complete physical and software profiles.
The Map-the-internet project will transfer this data to the blockchain while continuing to add many additional devices, aiming ultimately to map the whole internet on the blockchain. This will provide a backup resource in case of successful attack. Third parties will be able to access this data in exchange for MultiCoin.
Multiven Aims to harness and deploy decentralized human-powered artificial intelligence towards defending Bitcoin,
Maintain the integrity of the software that runs all other non-Blockchain Internet networks globally,
Document and map every device (type, geo-location, owner etc.) on the Internet (hardware and software) and make them globally available on the blockchain,
Launch the Multiven Open Marketplace (“MOM”), the world’s first blockchain-based marketplace that will simplify and lower the cost of buying, selling, and sharing of computer and network hardware, software and services between businesses and consumers using Multiven Coins, on a peer-to-peer basis, without intermediaries,
Design, launch and maintain active Bitcoin full Nodes-in-Orbit (“NiO”) to serve as a spatial extension of the global node network that will be out of reach of earthly adversaries.
