dWallet Labs Raises $5M in Pre-Seed Round As Odsy Network Comes Out of Stealth

TEL AVIV, Israel, Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — dWallet Labs, a cybersecurity company specializing in blockchain technology, today announced it raised $5M in pre–seed funding led by Node Capital and Digital Currency Group (DCG), and joined by Amplify Partners, Lightshift Capital, Liquid2 Ventures, Collider Ventures, Lemnsicap, Heroic Ventures, Impatient Ventures, Zero Knowledge, Dispersion Capital, Token Bay Capital, Tykhe Block Ventures, Cerulean Ventures and Earl Grey Capital alongside founders and angel investors from Coinbase, Ethereum, Celo, AngelList, Alt, Spearhead, and others. With top cybersecurity experts and cryptographers, dWallet Labs is building solutions on top of the Odsy (pronounced Odyssey: od–uh–see) Network, a secure and programmable decentralized access control layer to all of web3. The funds will be used for building protocols and projects on top of the Odsy Network.

In its short lifetime, blockchain has already gone through several evolutions. The first phase began with the emergence of Bitcoin which introduced decentralized money. Ethereum ushered in the second phase which brought decentralized applications (dApps) to light with smart contracts. Through the implementation of dWallets, Odsy marks the beginning of the third phase, decentralized access control, bringing the industry back to true decentralization.

Web3 has a major access control problem. As the industry continues to grow, it becomes more fragmented with new protocols, assets, and chains, causing access to revert from being completely decentralized (holding the private key directly) to outdated, centralized ways that hold the assets or keys for users. Managing access to decentralized solutions in a centralized way undermines decentralization. This is where a new era of decentralized access control comes in.

dWallets

Dynamic Decentralized Wallets (dWallets) are the trustless access control solution for web3. dWallets are a new blockchain primitive that other projects can build upon and offer programmable access for any other blockchain. A dWallet on the Odsy Network is bound to Wallet Contracts, dedicated smart contracts that manage the access control and privileges for that dWallet.

The dWallet concept will transform how digital assets are stored, used, accessed, and connected to the real world by adding a fully decentralized layer of a dynamic and stateful access control. This will open the door to new possibilities including multi–chain DAOs, granular access sharing, and interoperable infrastructure for DeFi. dWallets will also allow for a full transfer of their ownership, which was impossible before.

“It is rare to witness a totally new decentralized infrastructure allowing many new use cases that were not possible before with the utilization of the dWallet concept,” said Amos Meiri, Founding Partner at Node Capital.

“We're always looking for novel primitives that will unlock new use cases for blockchain technology. Soon after meeting the dWallet Labs team, we recognized the potential for their dWallet ecosystem to change access control for the better. In turn, dWallets may offer new ownership and transfer capabilities for a more expansive set of complex cryptoassets. We're excited to support the team and help bring their vision to fruition," stated Matt Beck, Director of Investments at Digital Currency Group.

Odsy Network

The dedicated blockchain that supports dWallets is the Odsy Network. In the Odsy Network, standard blockchain actions can be done only through dWallets, establishing them as a single, multi–chain access point to all of web3.

"Custody is just the tip of the iceberg, trustless access control is the missing piece of crypto. dWallets and the Odsy Network will connect crypto to the real world with so many new use cases," says Omer Sadika, Founder and CEO of dWallet Labs, who has his roots in cybersecurity, where he developed the concept of API Security, and founded API Security unicorn, Salt Security. "Today, we find it trivial that we have the appropriate access control, whether that be for a note–taking app or a bank account. However, when it comes to crypto, we have to choose between poor access control we get from blockchains to centralized solutions that defeat the purpose of being decentralized in the first place."

The Odsy Network was founded by Omer Sadika, David Lachmish, Sean Lee and Yehonatan Cohen Scaly, with the Zug, Switzerland–based Odsy Foundation that will support and develop the wider Odsy ecosystem. dWallet Labs will provide professional services to the Odsy Foundation, and support for organizations building on the Odsy Network.

"The Odsy Network is built as a security–first decentralized network, and it will be governed by the Odsy community," says Sean Lee, previously CEO of the Algorand Foundation, who serves as Odsy Foundation's Executive Director. "We are building the Odsy Foundation to support a vibrant Odsy ecosystem with builders and strategic partners to evangelize dWallet use cases for the next 10 years and beyond. The most innovative dWallet applications will come from the community and we will work together to imagine what is possible for the future of web3."

ABOUT ODSY NETWORK & DWALLETS
The Odsy Network provides a secure, programmable, decentralized access layer to all of web3 through dynamic, decentralized wallets (dWallets). A dWallet is a signing mechanism paired to a public key and constrained by dynamic access control, that operates within a decentralized state machine (e.g. blockchain). dWallets can sign transactions on any blockchain network that leverages the universally adopted signing algorithms (e.g. ECDSA, EdDSA, etc.)

On the Odsy Network, dWallets are bound to Wallet Contracts, dedicated smart contracts that are stateful and Turing–complete, enabling the management of access control and privileges of the dWallets, and the implementation of any protocol on top of the Odsy Network. The Odsy Network is a security–first blockchain that allows for multi–chain interoperability with programmable and transferable wallets. Learn more about Odsy and dWallets at odsy.xyz.

ABOUT DWALLET LABS
dWallet Labs Ltd., based in Tel Aviv, Israel, a cybersecurity company specializing in blockchain technology, is building SingleWallet, the first interface to interact with dWallets on the Odsy Network. The mission of dWallet Labs is to build protocols and solutions on top of the Odsy Network. dWallet Labs will also provide professional services and support for organizations building on the Odsy Network.

ATP’s New High-Endurance, Low-Latency SD/microSD Cards Built for Dashcams, DVRs Offer Over 109K Hours of Continuous Video Recording

S650 Series in native TLC surpasses other cards with 1.6X higher endurance;
S750 Series in pSLC mode achieves 2X higher endurance

TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ATP Electronics, the global leader in specialized storage and memory solutions, introduces its new 3D triple level cell (TLC) S750/S650 Series SD and microSD memory cards built for the rigors of non–stop video recording. They meet the high endurance, low latency, and built–to–last data storage requirements of dashcams and digital video recorders (DVRs), as well as surveillance systems, autonomous vehicles, and other write–intensive applications.

High Endurance Over 109K Hours1 of Recording Time in Native TLC
Video evidence can prove critical in many scenarios; hence, it is very important for SD/microSD cards to record non–stop without compromising image quality and integrity. The S650 Series can record Full HD videos continuously up to 109,401 hours "" far longer than similar cards marketed as "high endurance." The S650 Series is based on 5K program/erase (P/E) cycles, which translate to 1.6X higher endurance than typical memory cards with 3K P/E cycles. The S750 Series, configured as pseudo single–level cell (pSLC) is based on 60K P/E cycles, while typical pSLC memory cards are rated for around 20K to 30K P/E cycles.

The following graph2 shows the endurance simulation result of ATP S650 128 GB microSD compared with other high–endurance branded cards of the same capacity, in full HD mode.

High Endurance Maximum Recording Hours: ATP S650 vs. Other High–Endurance Cards
—————————
Notes:
1 Tested using 128 GB ATP S650 TLC card based on 13 Mbps (lowest bitrate of HD recording) in best–case/ideal scenario, with no other influencing factors.
2 Information sourced by ATP from publicly available data.

  • To record new data, the oldest data will be overwritten when the card is full.
  • 1Mbps=1,000,000 bps

Low Latency: Ready to Record in <1 Second, Writes 50% Faster
After power on, drive recorders may have to wait a few seconds to be ready for recording. The time between the first read command and the first write command from host is the “response time.” ATP S650 and S750 Series cards take less than 1 second response time while normal cards may take 7 to 12 seconds based on real tests on a DVR at room temperature.

While recording 16 MB data sequentially, ATP S650 cards take less than 0.1 second, saving 50% of writing time compared with consumer–rated cards and enabling high–speed backup without data loss.

Own HW/FW Design Features Offer Precise Reliability
As a true manufacturer with its own hardware/firmware capability, ATP can adjust to a variety of usages to fulfill customers' specific application requirements and conditions. Based on customers' applications, ATP does its best to meet the requirements by unique FW and HW design.

  • Auto–Read Calibration (ARC). Over time and with constant use, NAND flash memory cells degrade, causing voltage shifts that increase bit error rates (BER). When the normal Read Retry function is not enough to recover the errors, a more precise “Auto Read Calibration” (ARC) is applied to assure data integrity at extreme temperature or degraded NAND cells.
  • ATP Methodology for Advanced Card Analysis. ATP memory cards are IP67/IP57–certified and manufactured using System–in–Package (SiP) wafer/die process, making it difficult to do component analysis compared to SMT (surface– mount technology) process. ATP's uniquely designed substrate and debug tool make this mission “possible.”
    1. ATP–Developed Hardware Design – Substrate with reserved testing pin is available for future component analysis.
    2. Solder Mask Removal by Laser "" Precise and efficient method to remove solder mask so as to reach the reserved testing pins on the substrate.
    3. ATP's Own Customized Debug Tool – This is connected to the HW reserved testing pin and then linked to the SW analysis system.

ScyllaDB Announces ScyllaDB V, Addressing Legacy NoSQL Challenges

PALO ALTO, Calif., July 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ScyllaDB today announced ScyllaDB V, the latest evolution of its monstrously fast and scalable NoSQL database built for data–intensive applications that require high performance and low latency. ScyllaDB V introduces a host of performance, resilience, and elasticity enhancements that help gamechanging companies power instantaneous experiences with their massive datasets. These innovations for extreme scale are ScyllaDB's next step in resolving longstanding challenges of legacy NoSQL databases. ScyllaDB V enables real–time performance from gigabyte to petabyte scale.

ScyllaDB fuels high demand workloads in leading companies worldwide, including Comcast, Disney+ Hotstar, Palo Alto Networks, Starbucks, Instacart, and Discord. Its close–to–the–metal, shared nothing approach delivers greater performance for a fraction of the cost of DynamoDB, Apache Cassandra, MongoDB, and Google Bigtable. Such gains are the result of years of groundbreaking development and battle–hardened releases, which ScyllaDB V builds upon.

ScyllaDB is uniquely architected to capitalize on continuing hardware innovations. Modern infrastructure is fundamentally different than when legacy NoSQL databases were designed over a decade ago. Organizations now have access to servers with an increasing abundance of vCPUs, RAM, I/O, and fast NVMe storage. While legacy NoSQL databases are effectively insulated from the underlying hardware, ScyllaDB fully capitalizes on processor, memory, network, and storage innovation to maximize performance and use less infrastructure. Ultimately, this results in less admin and lower total cost of ownership. For instance, Comcast went from 962 Apache Cassandra nodes to only 78 ScyllaDB nodes. This efficiency results in anywhere from 2x to 10x cost savings over prior solutions.

"We not only anticipated this shift; we architected for it from the start," said Dor Laor, CEO and co–founder, ScyllaDB. "That's why we're so uniquely well–poised to tap the power of new technology such as AWS I4is and Nitro SSD storage. ScyllaDB V marks an inflection point in the evolution of NoSQL "" away from its roots in cloud–nascent infrastructure, and towards the future of low–latency, real–time distributed systems."

More on ScyllaDB V
ScyllaDB V is a series of releases across ScyllaDB Open Source, Enterprise, and Cloud (DBaaS) that focus on NoSQL innovations for extreme scale. Details are outlined in the ScyllaDB V web page. ScyllaDB Open Source 5.0 is the first milestone for ScyllaDB V. The 5.0 release will be introduced in a webinar on July 19.

Highlights of ScyllaDB V include:

  • Strong, immediate consistency for schema updates, topology changes, tables and indexes, and more. This eliminates schema and data conflicts, enables rapid and safe increases in cluster capacity, and provides a leap forward in manageability. These capabilities are based on a new underlying Raft consensus protocol implementation.
  • AWS EC2 I4i support with 2X the throughput (and lower latency) vs. i3 instances.
  • New IO model and scheduler provide fine–tuned balancing of backend database operations and read/write requests based on the disk's capabilities "" boosting throughput, reducing latency, and minimizing the impact of admin operations.
  • A fully asynchronous Rust driver that will serve as a unified platform for other drivers going forward.
  • WebAssembly for user–defined functions, which means that creating a UDF is as easy as providing its source code represented in WebAssembly Text Format.

About ScyllaDB
ScyllaDB is the database for data–intensive apps that require high performance and low latency. It enables teams to harness the ever–increasing computing power of modern infrastructures—eliminating barriers to scale as data grows. Unlike any other database, ScyllaDB is built with deep architectural advancements that enable exceptional end–user experiences at radically lower costs. Over 400 game–changing companies like Disney+ Hotstar, Expedia, FireEye, Discord, Crypto.com, Zillow, Starbucks, Comcast, and Samsung use ScyllaDB for their toughest database challenges. ScyllaDB is available as free open source software, a fully–supported enterprise product, and a fully managed service on multiple cloud providers.

CORRECTION – Zoom Unveils Platform Evolution; Launches New Packaging and Translation Feature

  • Zoom One is a new offering that brings together options for persistent chat, phone, meetings, whiteboard, and more into a single, secure and scalable package
  • All–new translation feature allows meetings to be translated between English and any of the 10 languages, or from those languages into English

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) is updating a press release issued on June 22, 2022 to clarify that Unlimited Regional Calling is an optional add–on feature for Zoom One Enterprise and Enterprise Plus customers. Complete corrected text follows.

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) today unveiled the latest evolution of its communications platform with the introduction of Zoom One, a new offering that brings together persistent chat, phone, meetings, whiteboard, and more into secure and scalable packages. Additionally, Zoom also launched an all new translated and multi–language captions feature.

"Simplicity is at the core of everything we do. As the Zoom platform has evolved from a meeting app to a comprehensive communications platform, it was clear that introducing new packaging like Zoom One was the next step in the company's evolution," said Greg Tomb, President, Zoom. "By bringing together chat, phone, meetings, whiteboard, and more in a single offering, we are able to offer our customers solutions that are simple to manage, so they can focus on business issues that matter most."

"Businesses continue to realize the time and cost saving a single provider can offer. According to Omdia's latest end user survey, 40% of organizations are prioritizing investments around eliminating multiple cloud–based UC solutions that may be deployed within their organizations," states Brent Kelly, Principal Analyst, Omdia Research. "The need to simplify business operations is a market trend that we see as being increasingly important, and Zoom One's tiered bundles and common management console aligns well to this customer demand.”

Zoom One's intuitive experience
Purpose–built to work together, Zoom One's intuitive experience offers customers the choice between six tiered offerings according to their business needs.

  • Zoom One Basic provides free 40–minute Zoom Meetings for up to 100 attendees, persistent Zoom Chat for team messaging, limited Zoom Whiteboard for synchronous and asynchronous work, and real–time transcription.
  • Zoom One Pro provides everything Zoom One Basic offers without Meeting time limits, plus cloud recording.
  • Zoom One Business provides everything Zoom One Pro offers, plus Zoom Meetings for up to 300 attendees and unlimited Zoom Whiteboards.
  • Zoom One Business Plus provides everything Zoom One Business offers, plus Zoom Phone Pro with unlimited regional calling and Zoom's all–new translation feature.
  • Zoom One Enterprise and Zoom One Enterprise Plus are similar to Zoom One Business, with larger meeting capacity and additional features, like Zoom Webinars, to help modern businesses scale. Unlimited Regional Calling is an optional add–on feature for Zoom One Enterprise and Enterprise Plus.

Zoom One Basic, Pro, Business and Business Plus plans are available for purchase online today. To purchase Zoom One Enterprise or Enterprise Plus, customers can speak to an account executive directly. For more information, visit https://zoom.us/pricing.

"If you provide a complete suite of reliable and easy–to–use communication tools that people can use to do their jobs, they are less likely to be using one–off solutions outside of our offerings "" which in turn simplifies our support and delivery model," said Rob Kerr, chief information officer at Cooley, a global law firm with 3,300 employees in 17 offices across the United States, Asia, and Europe. "Zoom's secure portfolio of unified video, chat, whiteboarding, and telephony solutions aligns our global teams and allows Cooley to better serve its clients."

Introducing translated & multi–language captions
Launching first in Zoom One Business Plus and Zoom One Enterprise Plus packages, Zoom's translated captions will allow users to view captions translated into the language of their choice. At launch, translations will be available between English and 10 additional languages, or from any of the 10 languages to English. The ability to translate directly to and from English is known as bi–directional translation. Translated captions display at the base of the screen while in a Zoom Meeting.

The bi–directional translations are available in the following languages: Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Ukrainian.

To access the translated captions feature, Zoom One customers must upgrade to either the Zoom One Business Plus or Zoom One Enterprise Plus packages (in applicable countries).

Zoom also extended its automated captioning "" the ability to caption in real–time what a speaker is saying in the same language as the one spoken "" to include 10 additional languages. Automated captions previously were supported in English, but now can be displayed in the additional 10 languages referenced above. Multi–language automated captions are available in Business Plus, Enterprise, and Enterprise Plus packages with additional support for other plans coming soon.
