ZCash uses nuclear waste from Chernobyl to generate random numbers

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 | bitcoin updates

Read articles: At the recent ZCash event, the organizers have processed nuclear waste from Chernobyl to generate random series of numbers. Security and anonymity in the crypto-ecosystem do not always work that way as anticipated, the attacks on Coincheck show off the weekend. The convenience of some IOTA users who generated their seeds online was also punished by hackers recently. ZCash takes on this problem in an innovative way. Admittedly, it seems a bit over the top. In a plane, selected developers and employees of ZCash meet and generate radioactive random sequences of numbers. However, their approach is always interesting. For example, developers of the cryptocurrency ZCash took the word "coincidence" to a new level in their "Powers of Tau" event. The event took place more than 1,000 meters above sea level in an airplane – a first hurdle for potential attackers. As a next hurdle, they used graphite from a former nuclear reactor in Chernobyl for their extraordinary project. The graphite moderator was the source of low gamma and beta radiation here. These have then been coupled to a Geiger counter, which in turn is combined with a number generator. Finally, the radioactive rays generated numbers that are no longer easy to understand.Additional Random MeasuresAs can be seen from the developers' data, graphite emitted a very low level of radiation while remaining consistently below the threshold that could cause health risks , Ryan Pierce, who goes back to the idea, said in this connection that this radiation did not exceed ordinary radiation on Earth. However, that was not enough for the ZCash team. To paradoxically check the randomness of the numbers, they ran a battery-powered number generator parallel to their instrument to compare the data collected. To top it off, the participants still want to destroy all the hardware involved in the process – for sure.
