This is why at Software Planet Group, we like to keep an eye out on any major upcoming events — and though of course, we may be biased — here are our top 8 picks for the month of September:

How Much Does It Cost to Build a Binance-Like Crypto Exchange?

Just as the name suggests, a cryptocurrency exchange is a business, online or otherwise, allowing its customers to trade digital as well as traditional fiat currencies. In recent months, starting up this type of company has increasingly become more enticing, as despite the market’s volatility, companies such as Binance have been making good profit, and prominent exchanges like the Tokyo-based Binance are publicly benefiting from extraordinary amounts of success.

Yet replicating such an achievement is not without its challenges, as important security issues must always be borne in mind.

Nevertheless, by understanding the right components and developing a thorough game plan, you can build a successful crypto exchange both iteratively and inexpensively.

2019 in Digital Transformation

By now, digital transformation is already well under way in the vast majority of organisations, but owing to the market’s notoriously changeable winds, knowing where to invest can quickly turn into a challenge. Just last year, for example, cryptocurrencies were largely being hailed as a great unexamined goldmine, but there is now growing support that these popular technologies are significantly less secure than originally understood. And what of the case of Oracle, which is now charging Java users extortionate licensing fees?

Nonetheless, by staying well abreast of the latest technological trends, Software Planet Group believe that you can make wise decisions that will help your business stay firmly ahead of the game.

So without further ado, it is time to take a look at the year in digital transformation!

The Blockchain: How Decentralised Software Changes Everything

Until very recently, all internet data was stored on web servers. There were many reasons for this, but one in particular was hugely important: by keeping information in scattered points across the globe, servers prevented the unauthorised altering of data. This is why you are able to trust that your facebook account will not be accessed by anyone other than you. Or, stated another way, facebook has become a trusted intermediary between you and the content you access online. With the advent of cryptocurrency Bitcoin, however, the stage was set for a profound technological change.

Bitcoin’s notorious reputation in the media is largely due to the threat it poses to the current financial order. By allowing peers to transfer money without the intervention of banks or government agencies, Bitcoin introduced a vast paradigm shift. Where news outlets have truly failed the public, however, has been in their reluctance to report on the groundbreaking technology behind the digital currency  the blockchain. As a matter of fact, Bitcoin is to the blockchain what facebook is to the internet, and the world is only just beginning to tap into the potential applications for this new technology. Software Planet Group would like our customers to know about the opportunities that lie ahead for companies choosing to embrace decentralised software.
