As technology advances and becomes a vital part of our everyday life, the number of accounts and passwords we need to manage increases. Most of our sensitive information is stored online and it is essential for users to reevaluate their outdated or potentially vulnerable password management methods.
During the past few months, we have been working on the transition from the vision declared in our whitepaper to the build of an application. It was a process that required thorough research in order to refine the idea and turn it into a framework for a working product.
Having a restrained budget means that there is not much room for mistakes so we aim to deliver a simple, usable product that meets the needs of both basic and more advanced users when it comes to digital security.
The DIW team is excited to be back from Decentralized 2018, the leading conference, that was held in Athens, Greece this year. Decentralized is mainly a Blockchain conference but also covers in lesser format Artificial Intelligence and other Innovative technologies. The conference was held at the Divani Caravel Hotel and hosted over 1200 attendees and 70 renowned speakers from more than 50 countries around the world. …
Recent breaking news show that Facebook was hacked and at least 50 million users’ data could be exposed to literally anyone that wants to do no good. Think about that for a moment and ask yourselves, how serious do you think that is? Let us fill you in with a few details that you might not know.
The Security offered by Facebook today
Facebook is, in fact, the second-largest data-collection and advertising agency ever, after Google of course, and millions of users tend to put their trust in organizations just like Facebook, to control the keys to our personal life. If you are a Facebook user, perhaps you have added your landline or mobile number as a deeper security measure to protect your account even more. Well if you did that, the company used it to serve you and all your friends ads. …
Understanding decentralization is the first step to understanding its benefits. So what is decentralization? There is no common definition but to put it in the most basic terms, it’s basically the process of distributing power away from a central authority or location.
The term ‘decentralized’ is often used in the digital world, especially in the crypto space. Technologies such as Blockchain are designed to be decentralized. Blockchain consist of layers and each layer is defined by an open protocol that can exchange and make use of data where anyone can build products and services on.
Bitcoin is the first and most popular application of the Blockchain and this technology has been adopted in different areas such as cryptocurrencies. Decentralized applications and blockchain based networks could make it hard for governments to control or regulate. So with this in mind, Blockchains cannot be controlled by any one person or organization, there is no infrastructural central point of failure, but they are logically centralized as in there is one commonly agreed state and the entire system behaves like one supercomputer. …
Well, what a roller coaster ride this was. With all that’s been going on in the market recently and the Ethereum network congestion causing the postponement of our token distribution, we can wave the flag of victory with confidence and say that our immediate goals have been met.
As mentioned in our previously featured article, token distribution began with our Translators/Moderators along with our Signature and Advance Media campaigners. But as you may know, the price of gwei within the Ethereum network was way too high to make any kind of large transaction. So the DIW team decided to wait it out and issue tokens when the price of gwei decreased and reached a satisfactory amount. As predicted, the price receded and social media bounties, article/blog/media bounties and yes, all airdrop participants received their DIW tokens. As you may have noticed, the distribution of tokens finished a couple weeks back, but a few members of our community informed us they did not receive their tokens, so we had to tie loose ends. Now that the distribution of bounties and airdrop is almost out of the way, the DIW team can focus on the most important matters.
DIW is and will be moving in a positive motion. This means that from here on out, we need to focus on our number one priority and goal — the development of our product. We can tell you now that we are proceeding very well and that the Vault will be Mobile App based with its user interface (UI) already taking form in the background. The development team has been attending meetings and discussing for many hours the successful completion of the App. So bear in mind that we need time to develop the app and take it through its paces correctly. Rest assured, you will be informed via announcements in our group and channel about the progress of our product.
As regards Exchange platforms, we are currently listed on LAToken and IDEx and we will continue looking into being listed in larger exchanges. The time for this will also come, so we implore you to be patient, after-all good things come to those who wait.
Once again, the DIW team would like to thank all who participated in making noise for DIW Token. …
Data privacy and security is something hard to come by these days, it’s also something that’s been spoken of very frequently. But I sense a bit of a contradiction here.
Many individuals talk about saving, securing and protecting data from hackers, scammers and fraudsters, but what are we doing about it when our information is left “outside” for anyone to access it or in other words, in reach of harmful doers? Can we store this information somewhere, out of harms reach, let’s say in a Vault? We need to think about this for a while and as we meditate on these questions, let us consider the problem in a practical way.
There is a large amount of sensitive data being collected and stolen on a global scale both online and offline, either from individuals, large physical agencies and social media platforms. …

DIW plans to release a ‘Bug Report Program’ that will award all of its contributing participants with DIW Tokens depending on their involvement and level of assistance in the development of the project. …
It has already been three weeks since the launch of DIW’s ICO with just one week left to go — just enough time to seize this rare opportunity and join this unprecedented project! The entire team has been on constant alert for months now with quite a few kilos of coffee consumed on many endless meetings and sleepless nights! It has been a unique and amazing experience thus far and everyone is looking forward to the next stage that the project is about to enter.
There is a contrast of emotions though within the team. Excitement regarding its own project, but disappointment regarding many others and the industry in general. Unfortunately, ICO projects have made a bad name for the industry and for blockchain technology in general. Some have labelled cryptocurrencies, and especially ICOs ‘Ponzi schemes’, ‘fraudsters’, ‘mothers of all bubbles’, ‘criminal cyber-terrorism’, ‘greedy scams’ and many more. …
