What is blockchain technology?

‘Blockchain’ is the algorithm behind bitcoin that allows it to be traded without a centralised ledger. In basic terms, it is an electronic ledger of digital events – one that’s ‘distributed’ or shared between many different parties. And it maintains a continuously
growing list of data records.

It has three key features:

First, it is a vehicle for transferring value and holding records – each transaction or record is evidenced by a unique data set or ‘block’ that attaches to the continuously growing blockchain.

Second, it does not involve a central authority or third-party intermediary overseeing it or deciding what goes into it. The computers that store the blockchain are decentralised and are not controlled or owned by any single entity.

Third, every block in the ledger is connected to the prior one in a digital chain algorithm. So the record of every transaction lives on the computers of anyone who has interacted with it, and is updated with each entry. The continual replication and decentralised nature makes it secure.

XML

XML is a W3C-recommended general-purpose markup language that supports a wide variety of applications.

XML languages or ‘dialects’ may be designed by anyone and may be processed by conforming software. XML is also designed to be reasonably human-legible, and to this end, terseness was not considered essential in its structure. XML is a simplified subset of Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). Its primary purpose is to facilitate the sharing of data across different information systems, particularly systems connected via the Internet.

Formally defined languages based on XML (such as RSS, MathML, GraphML, XHTML, Scalable Vector Graphics, MusicXML and thousands of other examples) allow diverse software to reliably understand information formatted and passed in these languages.

Semantic web

Semantic Web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which web content can be expressed not only in natural language, but also in a form that can be understood, interpreted and used by software agents, thus permitting them to find, share and integrate information more easily.

To be remembered that a Web as a universal medium for data, information, and knowledge exchange.

At its core, the Semantic Web comprises a philosophy, a set of design principles, collaborative working groups, and a variety of enabling technologies. Some elements of the Semantic Web are expressed as prospective future possibilities that have yet to be implemented or realized.

Other elements of the Semantic Web are expressed in formal specifications.

Some of these include Resource Description Framework (RDF), a variety of data interchange formats (e.g RDF/XML, N3, Turtle, and notations such as RDF Schema (RDFS) and the Web Ontology Language (OWL). All of which are intended to formally describe concepts, terms, and relationships within a given problem domain.

The Domain Name System (DNS)

The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet.

IP address” (IP stands for “Internet Protocol”

Every computer on the Internet has a unique address – just like a telephone number – which is a rather complicated string of numbers. It is called its “IP address” (IP stands for “Internet Protocol”). IP Addresses are hard to remember. The DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the “domain name”) to be used instead of the arcane IP address. So instead of typing 207.151.159.3, you can type http://www.internic.net. It is a “mnemonic” device that makes addresses easier to remember.

    DNS: What is a

    DNS stands for domain name system

    DNS is an Internet service that translates a domain name into IP addresses.

    This query is performed by a Domain Name Server (DNS server) or servers nearby that have been assigned responsibility for that hostname. You can think of a DNS server as a phone book for the internet.

    A DNS server maintains a directory of domain names and translates them to IPs.

     Example of Common DNS Records

    • A: Indicates the IP address of the domain.
    • AAAA: IPV6 address record.
    • CNAME: Canonical name, used for making a domain alias.
    • NS: Name server, indicates which name server is authoritative for the domain.
    • MX: Mail exchange, a list of mail exchange servers used for the domain.
    • TXT: Administrator record use for domain facts and verifications.
    • SRV: Service, defines the TCP service the domain operates on.
    • PTR: Pointer record, maps an IPv4 address to CNAME.
    • SOA: State of authority, stores information about when domain was updated.

    • site navigation ;
    • frames .
    • Doctype declaration : <!DOCTYPE html>

    Off-page factors are external influences affecting a given page. The author of the page cannot not directly control them.

    Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg will testify before the U.S. House Financial Services Committee on Oct. 23. Zuckerberg will testify at a hearing titled “An Examination of Facebook and Its Impact on the Financial Services and Housing Sectors.”

    Allegation on Facebook for helping LIBRA – PayPal, has dropped out Face book Plan

    House Financial Services Committee shall inquire the matter

    Zuckerberg is likely to face critical questions from  US lawmakers who are scared of Facebook’s efforts to help launch a global cryptocurrency called Libra. Previously federal government charged Facebook in March with violating fair lending laws, alleging that company sold targeted advertising that was racially discriminatory.

    Zuckerberg’s meetings with lawmakers focused on the future of internet regulation, which poses a threat to Facebook’s core business. Facebook is under review by investigators at the Federal Trade Commission, a coalition of state attorneys general and the House Judiciary Committee for its competitive practices.
