The purpose of this article is to answer a question: сan cryptocurrency take the place of a major world currency? I study this issue because of economic agents tend to apply that currency, which is used by others in a currency сirculation. Therefore, there is a tendency of a transition from the international currency system with a set of шnternational currencies to a system with one major world currency or to a system with a small number of international currencies. The first part of the article determines requirements to the major world currency. The second part of the article studies to what extent cryptocurrency conforms to these requirements. The final part describes the characteristics of cryptocurrency, which will allow it to take the place of the world currency. To analyze economic processes, the author applied the system approach as well as the methods of scientific modeling, comparison, and grouping. The analysis has shown that cryptocurrencies existing now cannot take the place of world currency, as they do not conform to many requirements. But at the same time, cryptocurrency as a world currency has competitive advantages over national world currencies. It is decentralized; therefore, when changing the country-leader, other countries can support it. Moreover, it is not a national currency; therefore, its volume is not connected with monetary policy of any country. These benefits give a prospect to cryptocurrency to become a world currency if in other properties it will be as good as modern international currencies. Therefore, in order that cryptocurrency has taken the place of steady world currency, it has to go under certain changes, which presented in the last part of the paper.
This book contains a selection of papers accepted for the presentation and discussion at the 2018 International Conference on Digital Science (DSIC’18). This Conference had the support of the Institute of Certified Specialists, Russia, AISTI (Iberian Association for Information Systems and Technologies), and Springer. It will take place Convention Centre, Budva, Montenegro, October 19-21, 2018.
DSIC’18 is an international forum for researches and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences, and concerns in the several perspectives of Digital Science. The main idea of this Conference is that the world of science is united allowing all scientists/practitioners to be able to think, analyze, and generalize their thoughts.
DSIC aims efficiently to disseminate original research results in natural, social, art, and humanities sciences. An important characteristic feature of the Conference should be the short publication time and worldwide distribution. This Conference enables fast dissemination, so conference participants can publish their papers in print and electronic format, which is then made available worldwide and accessible by numerous researchers.
The Scientific Committee of DSIC’18 was composed of multidisciplinary group of 26 experts.

The article presents the guidelines of the competency modeling methodology invariant to subject domain, type of activities and psycho-pedagogical platform. The core of this methodology is systematics of the expandable metamodels adaptable to application conditions by profiling mechanism. The methodology is aimed at creating conditions for interoperability of systems and services that make up a digital education, dealing with competency description due to possibility of flexible selection of such interaction level, good information structuring and formalization, selection of competency description units repeatedly used in various contexts, as well as ontological approach. One more purpose of the methodology is preparation of grounds for realization of smart features of digital education technologies: adaptation, inferring, self-learning, anticipation.
Any object or resource can be attacked. Cyberattacks cover identity theft, fraud, and network or system intrusions. Preventing online fraud, identity theft and hacking is especially important when exchanging information in a blockchain.
This report evaluates current transboundary shipment legislation and its influence on the movement of used electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE) destined for reuse and/or refurbishment, specifically addressing the electronic refurbishment industry’s point of view. The report is particularly concerned with the increased costs, and resultant reduction, of reusing UEEE that occurs as a result of such legislation. The report examines (i) current international legislation regarding transboundary shipment of e-waste; (ii) case study experiences from stakeholders in the electronics industry collected from survey and interviews; and (iii) various models and practices adopted by reuse organizations to handle the proliferation of electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). The report identifies three priority areas obstructing reuse organizations’ movement of UEEE across the globe: (i) discrepancies in legislation and enforcement between developed and developing countries; (ii) legislative limitations; and (iii) the valuation of UEEE. Based on these evaluations, the report proposes five key recommendations to resolve such issues: 1. The identification of specific policy amendments for the current transboundary shipment legislation; 2. The establishment of national e-waste and reuse policies within developed and developing nations; 3. The development of a comprehensive database to harmonise legislation between developed and developing countries; 4. The expansion of recycling and dismantling facilities in developed and developing nations using the informal recycling sector as a valuable element; and 5. The introduction of a regulated green, international e-waste transboundary channel. For the sake of expediency, these recommendations may be considered on either a regional or sub-regional level.
The article examines in detail the method of design of an own cryptocurrency with a description of its parameters. At the output, a program is obtained, with the help of which it is possible to mining its cryptocurrency and exchange it among users.
The paper questions the concept of “ubiquitous city” as a way to describe changing urban environment in a situation of increased Internet access and time spent online. The author suggests the term "digital porosity" to grasp the non-uniformity, limitations and gaps of digital connectivity (technological, material, spatial, social, etc.). Based on the research of internet connectedness and practices of Internet use in the subways of Moscow and St. Petersburg, the paper states that the extension of the Internet zone and the inclusion of new urban spaces do not automatically increase the connectivity of the city, since the latter depends not only on the availability or the quality of internet communication, but also on the intentions and skills of the internet users and their ideas about the comfort and the possibility of internet connection, the role of subway ride in the broader planning horizons.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
