Publications.

Updated 08 May 2021.

We publish under the Copyright: European Union Public License, version 1.2 (EUPL-1.2).

What is this?

This is a page to show all the articles we’ve published. Import-Export, custom clearance, marketing, web design, communication, social media, economy, finance, communication and data security, when doing international business for years you’ve covered all these. Then came blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Why do we need this?

Ubinodes is publishing articles since 2017 on a lot of different topics. Here you can find all our articles in an organised manner so that you can understand what we do and how we do it, and benefit from our experience. We explain the different types and categories of articles we write.

01- Types.

Our articles fall under three types: Reviews, Guides, Researches. These types are based upon the logic behind the way information is delivered.

1.1- Reviews.

That is, we have tested an application, from a business standpoint, for security and usability, and we give our result publicly in the form of an article.

1.1.1- Logic.

based upon a specification sheet. We have set a benchmark, sometimes even a threat model, and we review the application, feature by feature, under real life condition.

1.2- Guides.

These are “Step-by-Step” articles. It’s about explaining how to do something like setting up a burner phone, an account on a blogging platform etc.

1.2.1- Logic.

Step-by-step like a user manual. A dumb proof guide to carrying out a task.

1.3- Researches.

These are in-depth meta-researches on specific topics.

1.3.1- Logic.

Scroll down information funnel. The information is broken down based on level of expertise. At the top of the article you have the generic information and the more you scroll down the deeper you get into technical details. The aim is to allow readers to get just the level of information they need without having to comb through thousands of words just to get that little piece of information they need.

02- Categories.

To allow readers to understand all the topics we cover, we have classified our publications under 5 categories:

  • Secrecy and Security.
  • Blockchain.
  • Cryptocurrency.
  • Marketing.
  • Aviation.

Secrecy and security.

An organisation is as weak as its weakest link. Are you the weakest link?

International business is about secrecy and security. We deal with confidential and sensitive information for years. Protecting data and communication against the most evil form of threat is second nature to us. 90% of problems in an organization can be traced back to a communication problem, including interception or compromising of communication and information. Organizations need IT tools to share documents and communicate within the team. The specifications are always the same: end-to-end encryption, zero-knowledge, multi-platform. That’s why it’s so important to constantly try to find the best communication tool for the team. We constantly watch the IT sector for the latest technology to encrypt data and communication.
