Lately, in addition to uex.com, we have other good news — DTA also launched on several leading exchanges, including Bitfinex, Ethfinex and FCoin.
Based on the hybrid tiered storage architecture, we use the Redis database on each super node as local storage. The initial development of the Android app has been completed. It has the ability to transfer data between the mobile terminal and the database and between the mobile terminal and other mobile terminal. The protocol uses TCP for real-time storing and querying for the data such as IMEI, time, geographical location and IP address of the mobile terminal, and use UDP for the external network communication.
The current 3G, 4G, home wireless routing, campus network users are all behind the NAT, who are sharing the same IP address. DATA is currently working on ICE-based NAT traversal technology to track the IP address behind the NAT.
Log system design:
The log file system is implemented in the way of Merkle Tree, to ensure the data in the log file system is verifiable and non-modifiable.
Large-scale node communication emulation is designed and implemented to analyze the reliability and stability of network storage and communication in a large scale.

IAB New York Headquarters Internal Meeting
Jul 17th, 2018, DATA Co-founder Franklin Song participated in the internal meeting at IAB New York headquarter and discussed the application of blockchain technology in the advertising industry.
To build the industry standard for digital advertising, the IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) was created to govern the industry’s standard fraud reporting by creating the blacklist and whitelist of malicious nodes.
At present, the blockchain working group in the IAB Tech Lab is working on developing education for blockchain technology and its use in advertising. The members will work on setting priorities for the business use cases, required technology standards, and optimal practices. The DATA project’s most innovative edge is to proactively identify the fraudulence based on the pattern or behavior analysis via our proprietary AI algorithm, prior to the fraudulent user data being injected into the entire network. We will discuss with IAB and explore potential applicable scenarios to utilize DATA’s anti-fraud solution to support the development of blockchain for the IAB.
