Presiden menegaskan bahwa Indonesia justru harus memanfaatkan perkembangan yang ada untuk kemajuan bangsa. “Indonesia harus gesit dan cepat memanfaatkan kesempatan yang ada di depan mata karena rumus yang berlaku sekarang bukan lagi yang besar mengalahkan yang kecil, tapi yang cepat mengalahkan yang lambat,” ujar Presiden. Untuk mengantisipasi Revolusi Industri 4.0, pemerintah sudah mempersiapkan roadmapyang dinamakan Making Indonesia for 4.0. Presiden juga sudah berkali-kali bertemu dengan anak-anak muda dari komunitas digital dan memotivasi mereka agar bisa memunculkan ekosistem-ekosistem digital yang arahnya akan membangun sebuah komunitas besar. Ini merupakan langkah awal untuk mengantisipasi setiap perubahan yang terjadi dari revolusi 4.0. Presiden Jokowi menegaskan bahwa dalam membangun ekosistem digital, mau tidak mau semuanya berkaitan dengan content creator dan software. Ia berharap generasi muda bisa membawa Indonesia lebih baik dengan visi-visi besarnya. “Inilah tantangan ke depan yang harus kita hadapi, kita rencanakan visi besar ke depan Indonesia seperti apa,” ujarnya di hadapan sejumlah komunitas digital. Prinsip Penting Industri 4.0 Prinsip penting yang akan membantu identifikasi dan implementasi skenario-skenario Industri 4.0. antara lain prinsip interoperabilitas (kesesuaian), yaitu kemampuan mesin, perangkat, sensor dan manusia untuk berhubungan dan berkomunikasi satu sama lain lewat Internet untuk segala (IoT) atau Internet untuk khalayak (IoP).

Informasi yang dipegang blockchain ada untuk dibagikan dan secara berkala database-nya dicocokkan. Ini adalah salah satu cara menggunakan jaringan yang hasilnya terlihat jelas. Database blockchain tidak diletakan di satu lokasi, artinya catatan tersebut terpublikasikan dan mudah dibenarkan. Tidak ada versi pemusatan informasi untuk dirusak oleh hacker. Menjadi tuan rumah dari jutaan komputer sekaligus, membuat data tersebut mudah diakses oleh siapapun melalui internet. Karya Anak Bangsa Indonesia saat ini memiliki empat startup dengan “gelar” unicorn atau dengan valuasi lebih dari US$ 1 miliar. Adapun empat startup unicorn Indonesia adalah Bukalapak, Go-Jek, Tokopedia dan Traveloka. “Sekarang kita sudah punya empat unicorn, tapi saya ingin lebih dari itu,” kata Jokowi dalam acara pembukaan Ideafest 2018 di…

Noorcoin Partners With Zilliqa

Singapore, 10 April 2018, Noorcoin, the first shariah token in the world, catering to 1.8 billion Muslims, is proud to announce a pioneering partnership under a special arrangement with Zilliqa, the next-generation high-throughput blockchain platform. Zilliqa, which is headquartered in Singapore, is a new blockchain protocol that is designed to scale securely in an open, permission-less distributed network. The partnership will involve testing Zilliqa’s blockchain protocol for on-chain high-throughput transactions for the Noorcoin ecosystem. The design of Zilliqa supports thousands of transactions per second while maintaining strong security and decentralization. In contrast, Bitcoin and Ethereum can support only about 3-15 transactions per second today, which is why Noorcoin is interested in testing the application of this platform. "We’ve decided to build on Zilliqa’s platform since it opens up new options that weren’t possible earlier. We aspire to achieve outstanding quality, and to be a pioneer in setting the best practices in the world for the growing blockchain industry. With Zilliqa we believe that we can achieve that goal," said Sofia Koswara, Founder & CEO of Noorcoin. “We are looking forward to working with Noorcoin and applying the Zilliqa blockchain protocol to enable another fast and secure on-chain transaction use case,” said Xinshu Dong, CEO of Zilliqa. “Blockchain technology is the long-awaited solution for trustless and accountable platform. However, it is handicapped by the fact that the current platform can only perform maximum of 15 transactions per second. We are looking forward to match our development road map with the Zilliqa road map, including the testnet release, Scilla smart-contract language, and finally the mainnet launch around Q3 2018 to ensure a smooth execution of Noorcoin," said Iskandar Purnomohadi, CTO of Noorcoin. “Currently, very few people use blockchain based applications because even a simple transaction can take a lot of time to process or can incur a huge fee. The unique game-changing technology of Zilliqa facilitates the new possibilities for mass adoption of the blockchain-based applications. Noorcoin aims to serve a huge community and to help them do transparent, fair, and low-cost transactions seamlessly," said Thomas Yudhistira, COO of Noorcoin.
