Dear members !

Bitcoin and Blockchain technology are important developments !

I am looking to connect here with distributed computing experts ( OpenVMS ), system administrators and others etc. also interested in Blockchain technology and generally distributed computing / peer-to-peer networks, Blockchain poses many technical challenges but also presents many new opportunities for societal changes and useful appliacations for individuals, businesses / organizations. I am part of a wider group that have been active in the Bitcoin, crypto-currency scene and also following the current (private) Blockchain Enterprise developments for several years but with very limited knowledge or experience of the OpenVMS operating system. We are looking for input and expertise / particpation on building the next generation distributed network. Blockchain ( Bitcoin the public blockchain variety more generally known) generally strives to decentralize and disintermediate. The ownership and control of data can be transferred back to the orginal owner / contribuant from centralized controlled legacy (storage) systems (databases) that are more vulnerable to hacking. We are based in Europe / Amsterdam ( The Netherlands ) but are otherwise international and globally connected. It is an extensive collaborative project where we are participating voluntarily and without financial compensation ( not for profit ) feeling a better infrastructure and platform is needed to build and deliver future decentralized applications upon. I much look forward to hearing from and connecting to you. Just send me a private message. Thanks !

If this is real and above board, post a public site for review.

I think I saw blockchain on the VSI roadmap.

Is there something VMD needs for blockchain support?

Good to see some replies here after checking back !

VSI indeed is looking into Blockchain and I can confirm we are in contact with them on this.

At this stage we have not yet put on a public face ( so no publicly accessible website available ) being somewhat in stealth mode - exploring various possibilities ( including e.g. OpenVMS ) as well as looking for interested parties ( experts ) willing to contribute their expertise.

Rest assured this is real and above board! Will reply also by private message to Bruce Claremont with some information.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
