Application Officially Filed with MN Department of Commerce

Strength in Numbers Foundation, the non profit digital trust announces that it has successfully filed it's application to become one of Minnesota's first registered MNvest portal operators.

Our goal is to work closely with the staff in the securities divison at the MN Department of Commerce to develop a reasonable timeline for launch in early 2017.

We believe that our strong experience in information security including deploying some of the best practices in website and blockchain technology will assure a secure, successful and timely launch for our issuers and investors.

To help guide us in this process, we have retained Winthrop & Weinstine, llp  the firm instrumental in helping draft the legislation for MNvest.

 

MORPHO : A Poly-Morphic Approach to Dynamic Blockchains

Strength in Numbers Foundation, the non profit digital trust started by fintech entrepreneuer David V Duccini announced that it has a reference design for a new kind of blockchain that embeds the chain schema into the chain itself and permits changes to the structures over time.

To achieve this feat, the SNF blockchain engine is being modeled on an Erlang language implementation which natively supports the ASN.1 (Abstract Syntax Notation One) language.

The chain bootstraps with a basic block format that can contain instructions on subsequent block types which permits for a revision control like capability that permits the record structures to morph over time.

In addition to embedding the record structure formatting, the MORPHO chain can include code in any language, both as compiled byte codes for the BEAM engine or a JVM, as well as compressed source could be compiled locally.  Literally an API could be delivered as part of the chain in multiple languages with ALL elements digitally signed by a trusted key.

The MORPHO engine will permit both public and private execution of smart contracts with the results appended to the chain.

This work is being done to support the launch of the Silicon Prairie Online MNvest Crowdfunding portal with an express goal of putting issuers stakeholders onto private blockchains to faciliate official communications, voting and liquidity.
