VeriBlock's new technology enables an unlimited number of blockchains to all operate with Bitcoin-level security, so developers of other blockchains can focus on delivering killer features to users with highly specific needs.
At the 2018 TNABC conference in Miami, VeriBlock, Inc. announced the launch of the VeriBlock blockchain implementing "Proof-of-Proof" (or PoP), which allows any blockchain, no matter its architecture, to inherit the full security of the Bitcoin blockchain in a completely decentralized, trustless, transparent, and permissionless ("DTTP") manner.
Securing the World's Blockchains Using Bitcoin
VeriBlock's technology solves problems inherent in existing technologies such as merged mining, embedded/layered protocols, and federated security solutions: it imposes no restrictions on the architectures of the blockchains it secures; it operates in a completely DTTP manner; it requires absolutely no modifications to Bitcoin or cooperation from its miners; and it can simultaneously secure unlimited blockchains (including future sidechain technologies).
Partnering with key industry professionals including Bittrex, Bloq Labs, and Decentral/Jaxx Wallet, VeriBlock aims to roll out its Proof-of-Proof technology and make it incredibly accessible to blockchains, exchanges, and merchants.
VeriBlock Co-Founder and CEO Justin Fisher remarks: "After nearly three years of development and collaboration with some of the top industry professionals, we're excited to finally launch this amazing technology. Not only will VeriBlock make Bitcoin more eco-friendly, it will also help the ecosystem scale and allow new and innovative blockchain technologies to proliferate."
Any new or existing blockchain can adopt PoP and begin protecting every transaction on its network with the same unparalleled computational force that secures transactions on Bitcoin.
When discussing VeriBlock's technology, Doctor of Physics and Ethereum Classic Blockchain Educator Christian Seberino notes: "Proof-of-Proof is elegantly simple and powerful. It isn't simplistic but rather brilliantly simple like RSA, TCP/IP, etc."
Envisioning the evolution of the industry to move towards blockchain specialization where the proliferation of interoperable and purpose-specific blockchains ushers in the next era of scalable decentralized applications, the team at VeriBlock believes that Bitcoin's role will be that of a bodyguard for the entire space.
Rather than attempt to add everything and the kitchen sink to blockchains like Bitcoin -- a dangerous, unscalable, and contentious process, as demonstrated by the forks of late -- VeriBlock's new technology would enable an unlimited number of blockchains to all operate with Bitcoin-level security and focus on delivering killer features to users with highly specific needs.
The VeriBlock blockchain, launching Q1 of this year, acts as an intermediate security-providing aggregation layer for other blockchains wishing to adopt PoP. VeriBlock's development team architected the blockchain to be the most efficient and robust aggregator of proof, significantly lowering the bar for adoption of their new consensus protocol.
By protecting blockchains against double-spend attacks and providing real-time early attack detection metrics, VeriBlock will enable exchanges and merchants to confidently list and accept significantly more coins without worrying about fraud.
According to Bittrex CEO Bill Shihara, a strategic partner and shareholder of VeriBlock: "I'm excited by our long relationship with VeriBlock to develop additional security measures that can eliminate many classes of these issues which disrupt trading and put customer funds at risk."
VeriBlock Co-Founder and CTO Maxwell Sanchez envisions VeriBlock as a foundational building block of the ecosystem, explaining: "VeriBlock frees blockchain developers from the need to amass large mining support or develop complex and untested consensus protocols; instead allowing them to focus on their blockchains' features and usability."
It's not just other blockchains which benefit from this technology either. VeriBlock creates a symbiotic relationship between Bitcoin and the blockchains which inherit its security: inheriting blockchains drive value up to Bitcoin, by means of PoP mining fees, which further increase Bitcoin's security and solidify it as the world's leading source of immutable proof.
VeriBlock's creators also claim that their technology makes Bitcoin mining green: by reusing the incredible hashing power of Bitcoin to secure countless other blockchains, the resources consumed by mining can provide the security foundation for the entire ecosystem.

Founded in 2015, VeriBlock builds decentralized, trustless, transparent, and permissionless ("DTTP") blockchain technologies. They invented the Proof-of-Proof (PoP) consensus protocol which allows any blockchain to reuse the tremendous hashing power of Bitcoin, and designed the VeriBlock blockchain which makes adoption of PoP secure, easy, and affordable.
