In the News

‘Hashing It Out’ interviews CyberMiles’ Chief Scientist

This month Hashing It Out, part of The Bitcoin Podcast Network, interviewed Dr. Michael Yuan, our Chief Scientist, about building a better version of EVM and a DPoS consensus system for validators to stake in CyberMiles’ network. The segment also delved into how CyberMiles’ research is pushing the limits of what existing blockchain technology can do, and amazing progress already made in proving alternative systems for further developing blockchain tech. Listen to the whole conversation, not just about CyberMiles but also the space in general, at thebitcoinpodcast.com.

CyberMiles moves ahead with updates to the CM ecosystem

The most notable feature on the latest version of the CMT Wallet is the ability to issue personal tokens. CyberMiles is enabling every crypto enthusiast to create his (or her) own tokens on the CM blockchain, along with tools that help our blockchain grow by making the DApp development so much easier. Read all about it on blockpublisher.com.

CyberMiles is a top five pick of the month in BLOCK!

The second of five top projects in the premiere issue of BLOCK magazine, CyberMiles is noted as one of the first to implement e-commerce applications on the blockchain. We’ve created a large library of e-commerce-related “smart business contracts” and will migrate more than 15 million U.S.-based e-commerce users from 5miles onto the CyberMiles blockchain.

In addition to e-commerce sites like Blocktonic, where you can purchase stuff with CyberMiles Tokens (CMT), you soon will be able to use CMT to buy things like Dallas Mavericks game tickets and merchandise.

Decentralized hedge funds take aim at Wall Street elite

The volatile nature of the cryptocurrency market might seem daunting for individual investors, and while some believe crypto to be the next global currency, others still remain understandably wary. Many of today’s “traditional crypto” hedge funds focused on trading cryptocurrencies take a number of different individual approaches to ensure profits. On FanaticalFuturist.com, Dr. Yuan, our Chief Scientist, shares his thoughts on trusting decentralized hedge funds and sharing resources on the blockchain.

CyberMiles (CMT) makes waves around the world

Our advanced platform to ensure effective work in the field of e-commerce — a general, distributed accountability between suppliers, creditors, and all interested parties — has people talking worldwide.

For our Russian readers, learn about how the CyberMiles blockchain aims to become one for all e-commerce transactions on RBC.ru.

Arabic readers, on Gulf365.co, can learn how CyberMiles is making it possible — and safe — to send digital currency globally, breaking down international barriers just as the Internet did a generation or so ago.

And for our Korean readers, Dr. Yuan, our Chief Scientist, explains, via CoinReaders.com, the difference between issuing tokens through an STO versus an IPO.

(Meanwhile, our Portuguese friends, over in Brazil…)

CyberMiles is poised to change e-commerce in a big way

Our modern world is expanding its digital footprint, rapidly, every day. But are we ready to say goodbye to traditional ways of doing business by welcoming more efficient, secure and effective options? We may be, judging by the growing popularity of crypto and blockchain technology, not to mention online shopping. On SteemKR.com, learn how CyberMiles hopes to fast track this transition with our innovative platform.
