The Folding@home project is currently researching a cure for the corona virus Sars-CoV-2 and is now more powerful than the seven best supercomputers in the world put together. The reason: many people — including crypto-miners — are making their computing power available. This project shows what decentralized networks are really all about: creating concrete applications in which everyone can participate.

Folding@home (F@H) is a volunteer computing project developed by Stanford University that simulates protein folding for various diseases in order to accelerate the progress of medical research and thus the development of new drugs.

We live in exciting times: When we think about the future, we are confronted with catastrophes and inspiring utopias at the same time.

On the one hand, it looks very much as if the world community will not achieve the goals agreed at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. It is essential to avert a climate catastrophe and politicians are increasingly aware of this. Greta Thunberg has triggered a worldwide movement that is increasingly setting the political agenda, especially in Europe, and is intended to show us all a still utopian way through the climate crisis.

On the other…


Last Wednesday the EU presented the first European AI- and data strategy. This revealed: To catch up with the USA and China, a boundless market for data is required. Companies and administrators must be in a position to get as much as possible out of their data assets — without having to rely on US providers.

If we look back at the more recent history of the European community of values, regulation was primarily conceived as a means of countering the supremacy of the US super-corporations Google and Facebook (the ancillary copyright law or the basic data protection regulation, to…


Yes, we have big plans: TEAL wants to become the new Smart Blockchain Ecosystem from Europe. With its combination of proprietary, proven AI and decentralized blockchain infrastructure, TEAL wants to create a wide range of new application possibilities. Over the past few months we have been working on many milestones on the way to this goal: Preparations for our IEO are in full swing (more information coming soon). Our white paper explains on more than 50 pages TEAL’s USP and vision as well as the development of the e-commerce and recommendation market in the decentralized web. We are also working…


A German woman has almost two children in her life and that, on average, between her mid-twenties to late thirties. From such supposedly unambiguous information, an algorithm would probably deduce that a woman of this age group should receive more advertising for baby articles, especially when this data includes other demographic information about them. But what appears to be a win-win-situation for advertisers and users, on closer inspection, proves to be a fatal mistake. This is because about half of all female academics in Germany are still childless at the age of 35. …


Almost all Artificial Intelligence would probably fail at the attempt to understand this political confusion. This is due to the unusual situation we have here in Germany: When it comes to AI every political party, even our enterprise and research institutions are of the same opinion: urgent action is required. In fact, some progress has already been made, however it is just not enough. This has yet again become apparent during the debate in the Bundestag on “Strategic AI of the Federal Republic”. Everyone agreed: It is a future technology, we need more research, more start-up-support, better framework and so…


Zug/Bocholt, 28 January 2019 — The Blockchain has been in development for 20 years now and, in 2019 is not yet established either. In the meantime, more and more critical voices are asking when the technology will finally pick up speed. According to Gartner, the year of the Blockchain will not be long in coming. “Although the industry still has a lot of fundamental things to clarify, all the signs are already pointing to standardisation,” explains TEAL-CMO Michael Pruban. The TEAL team has compiled five facts that even Blockchain doubters can no longer ignore.

1. In 2024 the Blockchain will…


Thanks to Blockchain, the Schumpeter revolution has arrived! The blockchain technology is capable of much more than just Bitcoin whose basics have made it well known. However, the blockchain is very complex. It is so complex that it is not suitable for a rainbow press coverage. Not yet anyway, considering the economic meaning of blockchain is so important that its basic idea should be explained on every milk carton. Until then I am attempting, together with Joseph A. Schumpeter, an ecological and sociological classification in the frame of a blogpost. …


“Does a crypto currency count as money or not? “- ever since the invention of the Bitcoin ten years ago this question is repeatedly being discussed. A monetary unit has mainly three functions: it is a means of exchange, an arithmetic unit, and a value storage. However, currently the bitcoin is mainly used as object for investment, making it a value storage like many other crypto currencies. So, it fulfils only one of the three monetary functions. What is happening to the vision, that crypto currencies are going to be a normal part of our economic cycle?

It is rumoured that this could be the new dmexco. However, it is clear that the SuisseEMEX in Zürich is the biggest marketing and digital event in Switzerland — and indeed the alpine republic appears very open and the neighbouring Zug is known worldwide as the blockchain valley.
