*New Story* Do autonomous trucks dream of CW McCall?
I've got some serial stories I'd like to tell about living with (and in) technology and the industry. Do autonomous trucks dream of CW McCall? Falstaff’s story “For a bright shining moment, we added a lot of shareholder value”. Falstaff had a comic with that caption in his double sized cubicle, the kind reserved for senior engineers. For a while he thought it showed that he didn’t fully buy into the corporate line, but that he’d still do as he was told as long as he had a shot at the big payout. RSUs, the big acquisition. The end of year bonus. That was the deal in the before time, when things mostly worked out for most people it seemed. Falstaff knew he wasn’t the smartest, but he didn’t complain, didn’t pick fights and lived pretty well. His bad habits didn’t impact his work life and he still might hit it big enough to quit and try something else. To have options. Then everything happened at once. The fires. The diseases. The chaos. Nobody knew who was in charge for a year or so. Things came back. A few years passed and the wealthy parts of the coastal cities looked shiny again. Most people called it normal. To the casual eye, it was. You could still get sushi delivered to the office late at night, ski in the Rockies if you could take the time off. Things were pretty good if you stayed where you belonged and kept your metrics up. Things fell off as you went East or to the not-so-quaint rural areas that couldn’t swing a music festival or good photo opportunities for social media. Go far enough and you found the places where the Feds just walked away. Not our problem any more. That’s how Falstaff saw the world and his place in it. He had’nt had much sleep. Drugs, risky behavior and the self-loathing kept him occupied, making his morning commute that much less pleasant. He stopped staring at the RVs and tents parked on the land next to the on-ramp as he got on the 101. He jabbed the infotainment system to find some noise to sooth or at least distract him. “Today, the Department of Energy announced that repairs have been completed ahead of schedule for the Diablo Canyon Power Plant. Radiation levels are now below acceptable levels for the first time in three years” Click. “We’ve got an autonomous truck accident with a car by Exit 6 on the 280 Eastbound, so expect delays while CHP and a support team from Freightliner gets that cleaned up” Click. It didn’t work. He still felt adrift and unhappy in the morning commute, so he silenced the radio and drove to the office. The office was uneventful. Park, security checkpoint, a long walk to his building, a coffee on the way to his cubicle. He pulled the privacy screen closed behind him and sat down. A quick scan of his eyes and there was his project- a payment processing application that would cut out another payment application for a small percentage of a massive stream of money. He looked over last night’s chatter, split the tasks into ‘do the work’ and ‘show that I’m adding value’ categories. The fear and sadness caught up with him. He wasn’t ever going to get out. If he ran as fast as he could, he’d stay exactly where he was until his rent outpaced his income. His stock options would vest just fast enough to keep him going, but he’d never get out. The morning dragged. Tweak this, report this to someone else. The bureaucratic minutiae and make-work washed over him until lunch. He looked forward to lunch with Tran, hoping that might get him out of his funk. Tran wasn’t so much a friend as one of the few people who admitted how screwed up everything was, so there wasn’t any danger of speaking the obvious and getting a negative reputation. Tran was out today, so Falstaff ate leftovers and instant noodles in his cubicle. His phone buzzed. There was a message on MomTalk, a chat for wealthy mothers to discuss brunch, day drinking and their children. An engineer friend of Falstaff’s set it up as a joke to lampoon the women she couldn’t stand and her friends played along, adopting over the top personae and complaining about nonexistent spouses and domestic staff. After things came back, it was a way to talk freely, if in code. Heather: Hey. I’m in deep trouble. The Nanny’s unhappy and I need someone to pick up the kids. Falstaff sighed. Tran must need something. Sheila: Missed you for lunch. Not feeling well? Heather: Serious. My kid is stuck under my desk and I need him to come home. UNDERSTAND? NOW! Sheila:kk. He got up, took his brown cardboard biodegradable instant noodle container and walked a few rows over to Tran’s cubicle. Where Falstaff’s cube was disorganized and well worn, Tran’s was sparse with better furniture. Falstaff felt under the desk and noticed a decal with one end loose. A quick pull and the label peeled off into his hand, along with a small flash memory card, the size of a fingernail. He stood up and quickly looked up and down the aisle between the cubicles. Nobody noticed. Nobody really paid much attention to him on a good day unless they needed something from him anyway. Back in his own cubicle, he went back to the chat: Sheila: How urgent is this? Chip can have dinner with us or we can drop him off on the way to fencing class. Heather:NO TIME. FAMILY’S HERE AND THINGS ARE TENSE. Heather:RUN. GET OUT NOW. Heather:REALLY. Falstaff was concerned. Tran didn’t make jokes. Laughing at Falstaff’s attempts at humor was enough. He had figured that Tran’s talk of ‘having gangsters in his family’ was an attempt to seem dangerous despite being a cubicle denizen, the way middle aged men bought loud motorcycles that they never rode. He folded the decal over the card, pressed the sides together and dropped it in the instant noodle cup, then pushed it down with the corn-plastic chopsticks. The background chatter got quiet and multiple employees raised their heads prairie-dog like. Several members of the company security detail were looking through Tran’s cubicle. Geoff, the brush-cut ex-cop security guard for this building was standing in the aisle attempting to look like he mattered to the operation as the more polished and definitely better paid detail carefully boxed the contents of Tran’s cubicle. Falstaff picked up his phone and noodle container and started walking towards an exit away from the commotion. Geoff noticed and walked briskly after him. As Falstaff walked out of the building, Geoff called out his real name, then jogged behind him, puffing his half a size too small corporate logo’d golf shirt. Ironed golf shirt. Falstaff heard Geoff behind him, but decided to ignore him. Geoff was a blue-badged contractor, safely ignored. Normally. Geoff ran in front of him and blocked his path to the parking garage. “You wouldn’t happen to know where Tran is, would you? I’ve seen you with him ” Falstaff tapped on his white badge. “You’re not my real dad. You can’t tell me what to do” Falstaff squeezed past him into the parking garage’s doorway. Geoff glared at him while Falstaff got in his car and put the noodle carton in the fancy retracting cupholder. He started his car and drove off as calmly as he could manage. Despite his attempt at seeming indifferent, his mind was racing. He attempted to make good time without getting attention. Luckily, silver Porsches were a cliché and therefore almost invisible in the Valley. Twenty minutes later, he was in his mid-grade two bedroom apartment overlooking the parking lot. His cat, Hank, greeted him with a raised head and half open eyes. Falstaff gave the cat some perfunctory petting, while trying to sequence the next few tasks. He went to the refrigerator in the kitchen, carrying the ramen cup in one hand. He selected a can of energy drink and thought for a second. His smartwatch and phone went in the freezer. Fishing the wrapped memory card out of the cup, he picked up the can and walked to his couch, where a bestickered high end laptop rested. Debating between speed and security, he turned off networking on his laptop, then inserted the card into the laptop gingerly, mounting it read-only in case Tran left something aggressive on the card. Huh. A couple really large encrypted files. And seven smaller files with long filenames of seemingly random numbers and letters. He ejected the card and gingerly placed it on the arm of the couch. The file names were bitcoin addressses. A lookup showed a total value of almost $600 million in value there. The files themselves were encrypted. Falstaff stared at the wall for a minute or two, then realized that Tran had decided to quit and take an unauthorized retirement bonus from their shared employer. Enough money to kill for. Who knew about this, and more importantly, who knew Falstaff had the key? Tran did. Perhaps his gangster friends knew. He pulled his phone out of the freezer. A few project related emails and three MomTalk direct messages. Heather:??? Heather:Where y’at? Heather:I have investors. They’re quite insistent. They’re on their way to you. It was time to go. Now. Falstaff put the laptop down and ran to his bedroom. He pawed through a closet and pulled out the giant duffel he used to carry two week’s laundry from his grad student apartment to the cheaper off-campus laundromat. He quickly shoved a variety of clothes, some scuffed hiking boots and some corporate branded technical outdoors gear into it. Behind a shelf, he found a long, antiquated Russian bolt-action rifle and a few paper-wrapped boxes of bullets. It wasn’t the firearm someone on the run would want, but it’s what he had. It went into the duffle bag, which he dragged into the living room. Hank jumped down and inspected the bag. “Hank, I’ll hook you up in a second” A quick scour of the kitchen and Falstaff had two thick trashbags and a box of water jugs with his current employer’s old logo on them, which he emptied into the sink and turned on the faucet. As the sink filled, he filled the trashbags with whatever looked useful- tools, hobby electronics, his laptop and cat food. He pulled out a fat stack of cash from the bottom of his drug stash box. He contemplated forced sobriety, then carefully closed the box and put it in the bag, along with the cash. Don’t change everything at once, he thought. Now isn’t the time to risk sobriety. Falstaff rummaged around in the hall closet and dug out a bright pink cat carrier and stuffed Hank into it, then turned to the overflowing sink in his kitchen. He opened and filled the bottles in what he hoped was an efficient use of time, then pushed them back into the box. His phone buzzed again. He contemplated throwing it back in the freezer, then thought better of it, shoving it and the watch back in his pocket. Hank started meowing. “We’re not going to the vet today, dude. Shut it for now” Falstaff looked out his window. Typical traffic. Typical parking lot. A few charging stations, a fence and tents on the other side. He opened the window and threw the bags into the bushes below. He picked up Hank’s carrier, his laptop and looked at the box of water bottles. Wait. Stop. Think. Breathe. Tran’s card. A minute of searching found where he left it on the couch. He stuck that in his pocket, then ran out of his apartment. He considered the elevator, then decided on the stairs as they were closer to the bags and his car. A few minutes of pushing and shoving had the trash bags in the front trunk , the oversized duffle in the passenger seat and Hank’s carrier seat belted in the tiny back seat. He spun the tires and entered the flow of traffic, such as it was. He looked at his phone. More people seemed to want a response. Ignoring them, he found the closest florist’s shop and fifteen minutes later, pulled into the strip mall that contained it. A few minutes later, he was in possession of three “Birthday Balloon Extravaganzas”, finishing off the shop’s tank of helium and a bit of Falstaff’s cash. He tied the strings around his smartwatch and let it rise and drift past the confines of the parking lot. The hastily constructed wad of tape and ribbon connecting his phone to the other two Extravaganzas generated a more labored flight, but eventually it drifted away. He looked into the shop’s camera and flipped it the bird as he left and jumped back in his car. Soon he was back on the road, relaxing with his elbow out the window. Despite the stop and go traffic, he felt safe enough to relax and make longer range plans. Even Hank had settled down for the moment. The hot air felt less oppressive somehow. He contemplated the right set of music for an escape from civilization, trying on a few genres to decide. The screen also showed that the freeway was less than a quarter mile on the right and traffic would be light. Good. Then he looked again at the screen and thought about antennas. His radio talked to the cell tower, which talked to the Internet. Every application knew where he was. Which meant Tran’s investors or their ex-employer could know as well. One hand on the wheel, he looked around for something to pull the radio out of the dashboard. Hank meowed. “You have an idea? No? Please be quiet” Rummaging around in the glove box, he noticed an old folding knife. Falstaff slowly pried the radio from the dashboard while occasionally looking up at the tailgate of a modern SUV ahead of him. Realizing there was a rear-facing camera on the SUV staring at him, he slid down below the dash as best he could. A few more stop and go cycles and the radio was free of the dash. He unplugged cables by feel, but one took his attention away from the road while he pried at it with his knife He was distracted by a horn blast by his ear. Another SUV was forcing itself into his lane while the driver gesticulated at him. Falstaff reciprocated by waving angrily at him, knife still in hand. The driver of the SUV held the horn down, angering Falstaff enough to open the window and throw the now free radio at the noise. Feeling the embarrassment, he jerked the wheel to the right and accelerated into the bicycle lane with a chirp of tires and howl from the engine behind him. A minute later, he was on the highway, quickly leaving Silicon Valley. He hoped to make the Nevada line before anyone figured out what he was doing.
Some informative responses from Colin and Andy from the just-concluded Nano AMA at the Atomic Wallet Telegram group
The AMA ran today from 13:00 - 14:20 UTC, with Colin and Andy. I've copied over some of their responses that I found give me better insight into Nano. Their responses are in italics. Responses to different questions are separated by double spaces. Colin's responses are listed first, followed by Andy's. Sorry I couldn't copy over the questions as well. I've added my comments in places. From Colin: PoW coins have done a good marketing that the energy expenditure makes your coins more secure but it’s really unnecessory. PoW coins need to continue expending work because if they stop, their security parameter erodes. Nano has no such problem, once an election for a transaction is complete, it’s confirmed. If it sits there it stays confirmed and it doesn’t need any extra effort. Wow, put that way, Bitcoin seems unsustainable in the long term when there is an alternative like Nano. Yes the circulating supply is forever like this. The reason it can’t change is because nano transactions can only send your current balance or less to someone else, this means new coins can never be injected in to the system. Interesting design reason new Nano can't be minted. Volatility is a focus with all cryptocurrencies and it comes from low volume, it’s not intrinsic to cryptocurrency itself. To cure low volume our focus is integrating it in to parts of the economy where it solves a problem, rather than just emulating credit cards etc. Not having fees in the network puts us in a very good position for buying beer, for example. Typically credit card providers will charge 2-5% for a purchase, maybe even more, and it tight margin businesses that make 2-5% profit anyway, this is huge. A lot of Reddit discussion on crypto adoption considers only user experience and overlooks benefits to merchants. Nano is purpose built to be the fastest and most decentralized currency around. Our transactions settle in less than 1 second and it’s all done on a network with no fees, and a tiny environmental footprint Decentralization is an essential focus for us, many other cryptocurrencies can get fast or low cost, but they can’t also maintain decentralization which I think we do very well. Well the sustainability comes from 2 main parts. We have a laser sharp focus on being the most efficient currency. This means our development stays focused and eventually the amount of things going in to the code base will trend downward; once we’ve achieved the goal we just have to make things more efficient. The second part of sustainability is our Open Representative Voting which is our replacement for PoW mining. We saw the energy expenditure as something that would come in conflict with any system that would attain high adoption so our goal was to get the same or better decentralization benefits and also have a low energy footprint. We think we achieved that goal as our representatives are all over the world under many different organizations. A healthy decentralized representative set is good for long term sustainability. And on the simplicity, nano is probably one of the easiest cryptocurrencies to use. There are no fees to calculate, the UX impact of entering a fee is greatly understated. How much should the fee be? Does my grandma know what network load is? What does it mean with respect to fee? Nano simply has accounts and balances, you send and it lands in their wallet in less than a second, nothing can be simpler. We’re not looking to expand in to defi right now. I have some reservations about it’s viability. One thing I’ve noticed in my many years of seeing technology evolution is to not try and change 2 things at once. We don’t want to simultaneously change the currency people use and also change how finances are done. First change the currency, then change the finances. I think Libra suffers from a market mis-assesment. Essentially what they’re claiming is be a multi-currency bank account for every facebook user. Getting users electronic bank accounts isn’t a technology problem, it’s a regulatory and logistics problem. Since Facebook is essentially being a bank for people, they’re going to be required to comply with KYC requirements. Sending/receiving isn’t going to be open as it is in cryptocurrency because of AML requirements. People are not going to have access to the system in remote areas because how do they deposit or more importantly withdraw local currency from their Libra accounts. I think privacy is a big concern with our transactions and credit card purchases and it’s only getting worse. Letting Facebook/Libra know all your purchase history I think is a huge mistake. I think it also doesn’t fundamentally solve the central banking problem where they can print more money and inflate the currency supply. I see this behavior as a fundamentally unethical thing that cryptocurrency solves and Libra is taking a huge step back on that. I don’t see anything compelling about it and I don’t see long term viability. I think disk usage is going to be a low concern long term. The goal with Nano is to be a widely used commercial grade currency so the representatives will be banks and other financial institutions, universities, and tech companies. Considering how much youtube, instagram, and other social media data is created each day, I don’t think the ledger size will be a long-term limiting factor. Looks like the role of hobbyists in running nodes will diminish with widening adoption. Nano’s value is being the fastest, most efficient currency around. Entreprenuers make use of natural market incentives / natural efficiencies to make money on a business. Cryptocurrency has distorted that term a bit with something more closely resembling subsidies. The transaction fees and block rewards are subsidizing the security parameter and processing prioritization. PoW chains need this subsidy because their security parameter costs a lot. Additionally we’ve seen miners work to limit the network’s throughput in order to rent-seek on the limited transaction space. Damn, talk about unaligned incentives between users and miners. The people we’re looking for are the entreprenuers that know how to make use of a faster, lower cost currency. Yes, having a fixed supply is an essential component of currency. If people can add more currency to the system, they’re taking value away from everyone else in that process. It’s unfair and unethical. 1 Nano actually can be divided down very small so there’s no risk of not having enough coins. In this response, Colin is addressing a question about Steem and other dPoS systems. One major difference with Nano consensus is: having more Nano does not get you more Nano, there are no rewards for holding Nano. Holding nano doesn’t give people voting privledges on network changes, or any other centralizing component associated with holding. Another big difference is voting in nano does not produce blocks, it chooses between conflicting blocks that a user publishes. If you don’t attempt to double-spend, your transactions cannot be voted against. From Andy: 1. The faucet did indeed seed Nano's amazing international communities, and the contributions from around the world to the project have been unbelievable over that last 2.5 years. Communities are still active, engaged and building 💪 2. The effects of Nano being added to the Atomic Wallet (and other multi-currency wallets) is two fold. It increases the accessibility and convenience of storing Nano alongside other coins and also helps to disperse voting weight across a wider spread of representatives - increasing decentralization! We certainly feel that Nano possesses far and away the best fundamentals, democratic approach to decentralization, and user experience. Being fully distributed and operating on a the mainnet since 2015 is also very important, and puts Nano way ahead of many other projects making bold claims about future potential. Nano is here today, and works as one would expect the digital money would! Privacy is an attractive proposition to users of digital money for obvious reasons, it can be very important. Our position towards privacy is more conservative as we have seen many more hurdles to mainstream adoption being put in front of privacy-based projects. With that being said, there are eyes towards the technical implications of introducing privacy, but it is extremely difficult to do this without incurring slowdowns to settlement times. Throughout 2019 we were able to make significant progress in helping some of the more well-established cryptocurrency services such as exchanges, fiat gateways, payment platforms, and wallets- like Atomic 😄, to understand and integrate Nano. This proliferation of Nano across the space has ensured that it is increasingly more convenient for users and merchants to access and begin using Nano for payments.

How do you expect devs to BUIDL when the BCH Testnet appears mostly for show?
I had a dream about blockchain last night. that's never happened before. got me especially hyped to write some code this am. Truth is, BITBOX, was my last thought before i passed out @ 3am, while i pondered why there were 0.00000000 BCH available in the testnet faucet. it has to be a mistake. i mean how the hell do u run out of testnet coins? anyway, it was the first thing i checked when i awoke, all was well 1061.05089410 bch were staring right me, and i proceeded into my activities for the morning returned around noon to begin my deep five into BITBOX, so i figure let me grab a few bits (0.1 bch a time). i check my first wallet bitcoin.com (no testnet), i try badger next, then electron, and finally crescent. hmm, where exactly am i supposed to send these testnet coins? ok, so I'm a straight up bch n00b, landed at the dock about 2 weeks ago, so i get that i may not know shit about shit when it comes to bch .. but i sure as hell know crypto, and this makes no sense to me perhaps I'm being overly critical, but this is very disappointing. i have such limited time, and I've been so anxious to get my feet wet in this community. first impressions are critical, especially to super-busy devs. please help. pretty please. besides creating a wallet myself with BITBOX, where/how/who out there supports testnet on mobile? cheers! (please don't downvote too hard)
Good morning! As we gear up to launch the ad campaign, we are compiling a menu of possible copy and image combinations that we can deploy on News Feed. Adam, our BlackCoin contact, suggested that we crowdsource some ideas for compelling copy that is no more than 90 characters, and images that can accompany it that are 1200x627 px. The advertising spreadsheet is here: Paid Schedule Please feel free to add copy or upload images to the tab Facebook Ads Crowdsource. We’d also like to address the specifics of our upcoming ad campaign. With Facebook advertising, we can very precisely target people who are familiar with crypto, hostile to fiat currency, and open to alternative currencies. We are open to other suggestions for targeting as well so please feel free to let us know if you have any ideas. The goal is to get the ad in front of the right people, not the most people. The call to action on the landing page will be to download the wallet, we think this a good first step to getting someone to buy in to BlackCoin. Using conversion pixels, we can track how many people are downloading a wallet as a result of our ads- so we are not hiding behind impressions- these are in fact true results. As with any ad campaign, an iterative process with plenty of testing is the most prudent approach. Any help you can provide is appreciated. Thank you! Your MBA team Edit: Here is the landing page copy. The landing page is currently under development. A few clever puns we hope you find interesting. Feedback is appreciated, you can comment in the doc itself too: Landing Page Edit: From dognip_: Just to be clear, write some taglines 90 characters or less that somehow gets the point across to the reader that they should get involved with BC. Mix them with images. Some ideas are already there on the spreadsheet, but these are just ideas. They can be reworked, reworded, or new ones can be made from scratch!
Dice games are one of the simplest and purest casino games online today. There are thousands of different dice games available to play online, but recently dice games with bitcoin are getting very popular. Bitcoin dice is called the only “provably fair” game. Unlike other dice sites, platforms that offer Bitcoin or crypto dice don’t force players to trust the casino itself. Instead, Bitcoin dice runs on a transparent blockchain system that allows players to independently verify that the games they play are far, without stacked odds. What is Bitcoin Dice? Dice gambling games all follow the same fundamental process, but there are key two differences between Bitcoin dice and traditional dice game that make it highly popular with gamers. Firstly, Bitcoin dice is provably fair. Bitcoin dice game can be checked by players themselves to ensure that it’s fair and free from any odds tampering — the odds you see are what the odds you play. Secondly, Bitcoin dice allows players to gamble Bitcoin. This provides players with a massive advantage — casino players are normally required to rely on casino platforms to release their withdrawals and pay out their winnings. Bitcoin dice, however, allows players to withdraw their winnings in Bitcoin at any time. Bitcoin withdrawal transactions typically take less than one hour to complete, providing players with the ability to access their winnings much faster than any other platform. How to play Bitcoin Dice? Playing Bitcoin dice is extremely simple, and is comparable to many other simple BTC gambling games. In a dice Bitcoin game, players choose a number between 1 and 100 and place a wager on whether a dice roll between the same numbers will roll above or below that number — it’s that simple. Betting that a dice roll will result in a number lower than 75, for example, is the same as betting that the roll will land over 25. Most Bitcoin dice game odds are transparent, with a 1% house edge. The basic steps of playing Bitcoin dice are:
Choose a number that you predict the dice roll will land over or under and place a wager
Roll the dice!
Bitcoin Dice Tips & Examples: There are a number of tips and tricks you can use to increase the chances of winning big on Bitcoin dice:
Consider playing with a dice strategy, such as the Martingale strategy
When you play dice game, use different strategies with Autobet. For example: Roll under 48, set initial bet — 10 satoshi and increase bet amount by 300%. When you play dice, change this percentage to 45% and higher to test different ways. Some of the ways might work.
Slowly increase your bet amount when you’re on a winning streak — don’t get too hasty!
Bank half of your winnings to ensure a profit when you’re on a roll.
Consider playing on a platform that provides benefits, such as a Bitcoin faucet. Bitcoin faucet is free bitcoin, which you can get after a certain amount of time, like one hour. Using free bitcoin is a good motivation and chance to win more free bitcoin.
What is common between bitcoin dice & wagering contest? Dice platforms usually offer dice wagering contest. It’s a competition between crypto players in all over the world. Players have to wager in the dice gmae during a certain amount of time. Players who wager the most during that time, will get nice prizes. Especially, if you play dice game with bitcoin or crypto, it gives huge inspiration. Everyone is welcome to try bitcoin dice game with faucet in TrustDice platform — one of the popular dice game in crypto community. It’s transparent and provably fair, offers free faucet. Just try out TrustDice, if you’re interested in the topic. _______________________________________________________________ Article was supported by TrustDice game! To try Bitcoin dice game: LINK
Third Party Project Highlight Week 2: The Nano Center
Hey everyone, For the second week of my series highlighting 3rd party projects, I’ll be taking a look at one of the newer projects that I’m personally very excited about, The Nano Center. I talked to Andy, who most of you know from running the Nano things store, and Dave Carlson, otherwise known as WIMPZ, about the reasons behind starting The Nano Center and what they have planned for the future. Troy: Ok, so as this is a relatively new project, tell us a little about why you guys decided to launch The Nano Center. Andy: Hi, well, The Nano Center was originally conceived off of an idea that Dave had, to put together a video promoting and showing Nano in all its glory to as many people as possible. We used this as a starting point and immediately started conceptualizing ways to engage the community and organize efforts to make a real tangible effect. Both of us have been heavily involved in the Nano community since the end of 2017 and have seen the community grow and flourish over the months. We know how passionate and skilled this amazing group of people are and felt like we could perhaps make up for our own technical shortcomings, by building an organizational structure to help give people a platform to develop ideas and pool together the wide range of skills that the community possesses. Dave: We were amazed at how fast people saw what we were trying to do with The Nano Center, and almost immediately projects started to appear on the Discord server. Before we really got started on even building the website we had people designing banner ad campaigns through Mellow-ads. There are amazing contributions being made in the form of video projects, geocaching games, wallet translations and loads more of projects taking shape on top of this. We’ve had some amazing people work solidly to get the website together on zero notice, which has been incredibly helpful in driving the project forward and showing the community that this is a working model that can help the Nano cause. Troy: So as the project is still in its infancy, what are some of the things you have taken away from the first few weeks? Dave: From a personal point of view, one of my favorite things about The Nano Center has been its ability to reunite some of the community in its shared goal of making Nano the best it can be. We have been overjoyed to welcome some of the Banano guys over to the Nano Center and it is great to see everyone working together again. We hope The Nano Center is seen as a community collective for both communities, as we are intrinsically linked and all want the same things. Andy: To give an example of the work ethic and passion of the guys at The Nano Center, our creative lead Jordy and lead developer Kilrizzy recently put together a suggested landing page for the new nano wallet website. They worked really well together and produced a gorgeous landing page, fully coded and supplied to The Nano Foundation for their consideration. We were all over the moon when the Nano Wallet Company decided to use their work. Troy: We saw the banner ads on the Bitcoin faucets, but what else do you guys have in store for us? Dave: The next project, and what is probably going to turn out to be our flagship for the next few weeks, is the sponsorship of the KPI gaming CS: GO team at DreamHack - Valencia. Troy: More information, please! Andy: The KPI team, a top-ranked and for this tournament top-seeded CS: GO team, will change their team name to Nano.KPI during DreamHack – Valencia, which takes place from July 12th to July 14th. The tournament will be broadcasted nationally in Spain, and around the world via various streaming providers. That's what we're planning now - But we need the communities help! We've got a budget put together to extend Nano well past just the tournament, and into the DreamHack - Valencia 2018 convention floor! We are looking to have a staffed, branded booth where attendees can learn more about Nano. The idea is that we will be showing Nano to anyone and everyone, encouraging wallet downloads, giving away prizes for sending Nano, and even utilizing some of our existing services, such as the faucet and Nano Twitter Tip Bot! Troy: Well that’s exciting. How can people get involved? Dave: So I want people to know that this is overseen by us, but essentially is a space for the community to do their thing. It’s not a place where you tell someone your idea, it’s a place where you create your idea with the help of others. Completed and structured proposals will all make it onto the website where the community will vote with their Nanos on what projects they want to see realized. Andy: We welcome everyone to join us on The Nano Center’s discord server and to learn more about the project on our website Previous Project Highlights Week 1: BrainBlocks
ULTIMATE CRYPTO FAUCET LIST - Abraham Lincoln and a cool list of cryptocurrency faucets for you and your shibe.
Four score and a couple of months ago a few crypto-faucet winners and losers popped up in my browser... SOME WERE THE BEST HOT DAMN FREE BITCOIN FAUCETS that a person could find and well some were not as fast...During the last decade the worlds developers and programmers brought forth on this planet the crypto-faucet in many different forms. Are all faucets created equal? They are not... Alright I know this isn't the Gettysburg address but who doesn't love Lincoln? Here I have compiled The best Fun and Profitable Cryptocoin Faucet List for you. If you like this list you may use it to sign up for these great faucets and claim Bitcoin as well as many different Altcoins. These are referral links so I might get some fantastic referrals like you in exchange for creating this hopefully useful list. One thing you will need is patience, if you are going to try to get some bitcoins or altcoins for free. it's not really free basically you are being given a very tiny amount of crypto-currency for watching internet advertising or for competing in games or challenges. There are also places you can get paid in Cryptocurrency for completing surveys or doing small tasks. As with anything on the internet you use these at your own risk and do be careful out there in faucet land. Some of these pages have third party advertisers that will have some pretty crazy s**t pop up on you. If you do want to go wandering around in faucet land, Here are some of my favourite bitcoin and altcoin faucets; These are a few of the best i've found for Bitcoin! FREE BITCO.IN - this one pays out daily interest once you have a high enough balance The next seven faucets listed are for COINPOT a handy collector for your faucet claims. They payout quite quickly once you reach minimums. MOON BITCOIN BITFUN BONUS BITCOIN: HINT; this one is great on it's own but it's even better if you find the settings and always claim the average amount! Unless you hit the jackpot this will always bring you more coins over the long run. If you prefer Altcoin faucets these are very wOw! <3 MOON BITCOIN CASH MOON LITECOIN MOON DASH MOON DOGE! MEGA WOW! MUCH SHIBE THANKS! WOW wow WOW MORE DOGE AT FREEDOGE COIN BYTECOIN: tHe recently PINK CRYPTO Here is a site that GETS BONUS POINTS for having a funny name You can claim bitcoin quite often but it takes a long time to reach the threshold unless you have referrals. That's where you come in my friend please help me out and become a referral. Thank you very much! :-) BITCOINKER! - update NOT PAYING as of July 2019 site admin please pay up! Or another site you will need much patience to get a little EtherEum; eThErEuM FAUCET There are some sites that have games! and pay a little bit of coins for hanging out and playing some games. cool. CHOPCOIN BITFUN LOOTBITS! reviews not good probably scam - If you like to claim quite a bit,do surveys, or get free coins through chat you might want to try: FAUCETHUB They give away quite a bit of free Potcoin (POT) as well as other coins such as DOGE and PRIMECOIN If you like Faucethub and it's owner (s)he has another site that pays you for shortening your links: BTC-LINK SHORTENER And this strange little crypto-game(?) is the one featured in the image for this post. While you can deposit to make the 'game' go faster you can also play for free and have the option of earning coins in other ways. WEIRD LITTLE CRYPTO FARM GAME - - after "researching" this one it is probably a "loser" based on reviews found on various forums. That said I'm hangin' in there for now to see what happens. CLOUD MINE FOR FREE - ON EOBOT if you are so inclined. You will need to either claim from their faucet everyday and put it into GHS rental or transfer funds from other faucets to get started just message me here if you are having trouble. This faucet claiming and "cloud mining" is all very experimental and profits are very small. At the end of the day; PERHAPS IT IS BETTER JUST TO OUTRIGHT BUY COINS - Through this exchange BINANCE Who knows if anyone is really making much on this stuff or not. Join one or join them all the more the merrier. So that's the list. I hope all you faucet seekers or curious browsers find it useful and or interesting. Good luck out there and if you have any questions about any of them please feel free to message me. All the best in your search for freedom and equality! *don't forget to upvote!
Hi everyone, I've been using Gridcoin for about 2.5 years and been crunching for 3! Here is how I got to where I am now: My story starts as a kid still in secondary school. At the time I was obsessed with computers, so much so that I decided to start teaching myself computer science at the age of 12 so that I could understand how the monster that my computer was worked. Also during this time was the slowly rising price of Bitcoin, I think I still have a screenshot on my phone of when it was around $500! I never knew of any alternate currencies at that time other than Ethereum until I was browsing the [email protected] forums and checking out my sick RAC when I found a currency called Gridcoin mentioned in one of the posts. Upon searching, I landed on the o' great and powerful www.gridcoin.us where I downloaded the wallet and took it for a spin. This was the very first time that I ever laid hands on a cryptocurrency (I was about 14-15 years old at the time) and it was quite a phenomenal journey. Unlike many others, I followed the instructions on the site and everything worked extremely well without issue and I was well on my way to utilising the blockchain for its full potential. I started out with a measly 20 GRC. This was back in the day when you could reasonably stake with that much. Sooner I started working my way up and found myself harbouring a small bank account of my own digital assets. By using Gridcoin I came to understand the fundamentals of a blockchain from an extremely early age, and this has enabled me to create presentations to teach others how cryptocurrency really works. I am extremely honored to have gained this knowledge from a project I so loved. I used to (and still to this day) crunch half on the pool and half solo. My first project was [email protected] which was soon followed by [email protected] which I ran on my mac using my school's electricity, then choosing GPUgrid while on the older GRC pool (http://gridcoin.co/) before exploring many other projects. You can still see how well I did on [email protected] back in the day just by looking at the proportions of credit: https://preview.redd.it/cefencxnh8r11.png?width=1014&format=png&auto=webp&s=c01fdf05466a3df7ab889089330f474cb561a655 Now, as you can see, I solo crunch Primegrid (with a success in finding a 388k digit prime!) along with Rosetta occasionally, SRBase (which is a horror when it comes to getting tasks before everyone else does) and DHEP which I am currently in a craze about. On my other machines crunching for the pool, I put all earnings into the GRC Wallet Bot that I own in order to give out as starter coins or to top-up the faucet. I crunch WCG (for those amazing GBYTE rewards) along with [email protected] and recently GPUgrid which nicely keep my faucet topped-up. Gridcoin and BOINC have done so much for me, even gone as far as to provide me with something to put on my resume, and I hope I can give as much back to the community too. You guys have been amazing and I hope to work with you a lot more in the future. <3
14.8 For sane instructions, please refer to https://github.com/eruina/laffka, most relevant technical stuff is in README.md - https://github.com/eruina/laffka/blob/masteREADME.md 14.8 RELEASE 2.01 pip3 -r requirements.txt nano app/configuration.py nano app/templates/disclaimer.html python3 laffka.py https://github.com/eruina/laffka 10.8 Made one test sale, spores for for microscopy in syringe. Can confirm, payment of mailing expenses made to my wallet rapidly and without problems. Proof:https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/address/1FwJdVgMZHK6WWX9t9GJnBnSVrSqfqkARB/transactions Revamped site, welcome: http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/ source code will be availible 12.8 Revamped sitehttp://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/ 9.8 Items can be added, removed and edited from console panel: Console item And this is how it looks like listed: http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/item/6 Listing Custom list of amounts to ship is in use now, howver - admin console validates only if session authorized. What does this mean? Means that putting wrong values into database might bring whole Laffka down. Especially amount lists and orders which include both MainNet and TestNet orders. Temporary solution would be to implement /rescue page, where admin can delete any offending row from database. Bit lame, but would do for now. I am also puzzled at in which form package is to make. Well, have 3 days to figure it out. 8.8 At very basic level Laffka works in very basic level without any external stuff. Here: Second part of admin console At the risk of being labeled pedlling crap - shop example on laffka should work: http://sporeikzj77hnrxq.onion/ (yes, it is fully working little shop) 8.8 Items can be changed from console now. One can change, but not add or remove items at the moment. Ugly as hell, but admin console in fact doesnt need to be pretty. it needs to be functional. https://preview.redd.it/xqpdx0rn0ue11.png?width=1195&format=png&auto=webp&s=c495e2c89b59c7a0fcc35a2c123a83a8667c35d1 6.8 Orders part of console is finished. Orders shown - ones that are paid, and ones that are marked with note. Rather nifty, but probably requires additional changes after code is released. Orders page Order 98 will be shown even if Wif key is swept. Order 99 will disappear after Wif key is swept. Simple, and probably will require additions, but would do for now. Time to fiddle with items. 5.8 Something like this. Subject to change! Console, early version 5.8 Admin console is a bit of a puzzle. At the moment, I think of showing orders that has been paid AND orders which has note left by admin. Should be sufficient for first release version. I also deem it bit pointless at the moment to validate values of admin console forms, orders and items. 4.8 pip3 module requirements now include flask-login and flask-session. It would be interesting to run few instances of Laffka with common order table. This way one can make and keep a lot of small darknetshops in hidden onion land, with overall price well under 50€. Login and session are required for shopowner identification, means it is in progress, after which packaging only left. It might be interesting to make liveusb with sole purpose of running small Laffka-torshop. Word Laffka is from finnish Lavka, which means small shop, usually at market place. 2.8 I should mention, that purchase process is very nonintrusive for customer. Gives a bit strain to shop owner, but not much. 1.8 Meanwhile I suffer from heat and overuse of bandwith, here is small presentation, how payments work. Suppose customer would like 3pcs of Test item 1: Generic order of Test item 1 So, customer clicks 3pcs, and arrives at second page: Address part of ordering Finally customer arrives at personalized payment page Check out After which customer is asked to pay for order: Electrum Testnet After order being paid, payment reflects on orderpage(http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/pay/mryJ3ukrFHoUmdHeSkR4XZcwe3wvG3pRkd) After payment been through: Finished payment Shop owner can claim funds by sweeping own private key from admin console(not finished yet) Private key cUP4jznEGX8EDMPw813w4B7E6fBo3FDXPqhRLp5sFHq3v3KCgP2z All right, now lets swipe: Sweep-sweep. Voila, New transaction received Received payment So, all in all customer paid 4.64526, and shop owner received 4.64108, difference is paid for bitcoin transaction, while private key was swept. Nifty. 1.8 FFS. Seems I've depleted bandwith for august. need to tune tor more careful. UPDATE: temporarily example can be accessed at http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/. test22cq47 doesn't work for now. 1.8 Satellite skeleton is done, orders page in progress. Makes sence to finish satellite with instructions after admin console is done. Still fucking hot in here, coding advances very slow, yet I believe it is going to be finished before deadline, 12.8 31.7 Satellite is in works, meanwhile testshop can be found at http://test222cq47k6qrn.onion/ http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/ is going to point to project site itself, with sources and instructions. 31.7 My bad.Had theoretic items in a shop, and was considered peddling crap by administration. Exchanged those to Test item 1 and 2, as seen here: http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/ Project is now hosted separatedly from development, and should be availible all the time. Of course, since it is early Alpha, it can fall, but otherwise you are welcome to make test order and pay it with testBitcoins. It is fucking hot here, literally cannot concentrate myself to do anything useful.There is but two things left before release:
Admin console (for fiddling with items, and sending orders)Have idea how to elegantly handle orders, but not items
Some form of ready to deploy package
Also, I must mention requirements. Installing whole thing on pristine CentOS 7.4 was under 15mins, so here are first requirements:Python3 and python3-pip And pip requirements for now: flask, requests, Flask-APScheduler, Flask-WTF, bitmerchant 12.8 is still deadline for release. 29.7 Nifty!!! Too hot to think about admin console, yet it is not harder to run few instances of Laffka on machine than typing:flask run --port=5678andflask run --port=6789 in two different consoles. Actually nifty. No conflicts, two absolutely separate instances having nothing to do with each other.One can already generate sales, yet database from admin perspective is accessible only from some DB Browser. 29.7 I have observed, that visitors are coming to payment page, where it asks address and then most probably close page. Don't be afraid, type some stupid shit there, it will transfer you to payment page itself. Don't be afraid to pay order neither, since testBitcoins do not cost anything. Neither I receive any information, except routes of visitors. Answering questions: Design is no priority whatsoever. Since Laffka is developed with Tor in mind, there is no graphical elements at all. May be later CSS will be tweaked and ability to add pictures to items, but I don't see myself developing cushy designs for Laffka. It should be lightweight, fast and simple. Functionality is of priority here. Then there is question "How can I participate". At the moment only by testing is a method or participation, ie making order and paying with testBitcoins. After first release, one can branch code and develop own branch. I am not yet ready to release first public version. Before releasing, there is necessity to create make/setuptools.py 28.7 Hello. Always wanted my own small shop on darknet, not consolidated markets, which are riddled with such problems as exit scams, DDOS attacks, rules which you couldn't change and whatnot. Never found anything suitable, heard about torshop, but apparently it was a scam. Which is quite understandable - never trust your private keys to unknown third party, it is just plain stupid. I think I came up with solution. Well, I didn't invent idea of opensource, but I think I know how to make this thing work. Let me present Laffka, in its very much alpha stage. It is written in Flask+python3, and uses* sqli*te as database engine. Doesn't require blockchain downloading, checks transactions online and generates private keys for bitcoin wallet sweeping, thus getting payments for *a t*x price. Should work clearnet too, I don't see why not. Works excellent and made specially for hidden service purpose. No binaries whatsoever, everything is in clean and understandable python+html. No surprises, no hidden stuff. Plain opensource. And plain opensource will be released, without tricks. There are some pypi dependencies, I will list them in documentation upon release. And release is coming soon. Not yet, but I've decided to draw a little attention, since Laffka accepts and processes payments, albeit on very basic level (no admin console at the moment, lot of functionality still missing) Please observe alpha version 0.02 in action - http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/ make order, or observe existing order - http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/pay/mxprSXCVX7WvvADDDVCrKmEhfsvWvznawu (observe increasing wallet balance upon sending testBitcoins. No blockchain involved.) It would be greatly appreciated if you'd make order and pay for it. TestNet, not MainNet, so no money involved whatsoever. I require some feedback about project. You can run Electrum in testnet electrum --testnet, and get testBitcoins at some faucet, https://testnet.coinfaucet.eu/en/ for example (there are others) If link doesn't work, it is ok - means I've took it off, and it will be coming back online bit later. Resource will run continuously when I finish satellite for Laffka (ToDo list is on index at http://laffka6wwduoexvb.onion/) Thanks for attention. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 yes, it is me http://silkkitiehdg5mug.onion/faceless -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2 iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJbXh9iAAoJEEuIauo+qFrQPvcP/A+aYZEkFgMNkl8pKj2RtOtv fZeeMu45vTRNDbShZkkvtSRTLkInhHONQ7+2iYZLYQOMXCpMtgUdmZCXBxsQgf0j WKyjgMuyP/IFOAZzPYlkDhBc7XlVMmaSR5aezrAcKF1vVUujrFwxuCBNFs7gjF74 1IKK1O3QHmjP/mHakmM31Ml5/VGH0cOaEQAcSJ4j3WUnfm5qCblRu81BFqWgoMh/ wyzJg6YYXcH+Hw2IAgJ4N2yL+Ze1DNehWVnNxxzbeqqkpuNvMVxutTqOjVcvj6or WVzke9rjEYpP8tpNlIdCnPaKq9IpRmSnJHeh0gN6SknRsT56gyPZ2dS09j4bATCD vL9yrufAb7KJKgZoQfMH02i1M9+PFL/HPV4l1Do62dAY5EKwdwOFBiAn/1rfKFXA NuD7N63+zKtUJyO3HKxtdxMmyRE3XcTD0OWnLfjhcrsCcptu+9kPIN+aDu9OnuXt j94FLiJupwf1k5jeKIcvDXT+fwr3SacrmrsOTv4vcGC2LJj0aEK+/dEE0RDoCl x3pPWT9v31PvA11HiT8PpLH2aQoE6e0iwhfRHtcsqy8itfwzCeSqhZz56q377BcH FKYYcyIJulTji7YYGrLU+6aKlYBGTGTCISPonTgZoB2fi5UZaSu6UvhrEA5sAEEH t81FDBuHqqeHaPH0mi0R =ZVSC -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

The deconstruction of money: Prosperity when wealth ceases to exist
Here's a question to ponder: How do you conjure 300 billion dollar out of thin air? The answer, if you hadn't guessed it yet, is cryptocurrency. People used to laugh at this phenomenon, but they're not laughing anymore. They're feeling the same emotions about this phenomenon that I felt four years ago: They're worried and excited at the same time. Bitcoin is a first, but not just in one domain. It's a first in most of its defining characteristics. We have witnessed the emergence of a means of exchange whose rate of inflation is predictable. Nobody can create more than 21 million Bitcoin, we can merely find ourselves disagreeing about the definition of a Bitcoin, which is starting to happen. Despite its scarcity, Bitcoin has no intrinsic value. We're now beginning to discover that this doesn't matter, something most economists and academics had not anticipated. Just as an artist can earn money by shitting in a can, you can earn money by producing virtual currency. What we don't know yet is how far this phenomenon can grow. As of speaking, it gobbles up 0.1% of the world's electricity. As a means of doing anonymous transactions, it's pretty much useless compared to the alternatives that have succeeded Bitcoin. In the worst case scenario, Bitcoin is like Microsoft or Facebook, in the sense that its network effect and early mover advantage allow it to eliminate all competition. This results in the dystopian scenarios I have frequently discussed before. In a more realistic scenario however, Bitcoin ceases to grow eventually. This makes more sense to me. Consider this: Would you invest in something that has grown in value 100-fold over the past two years? You would probably be wise enough to recognize that other investment options have more growth potential left. If enough people understand this, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we assume that people buy Bitcoins to get rich quick, they'll stop buying them when it becomes clear it won't allow them to get rich. As a result, its value will eventually crash. Note the difference between Bitcoin and Windows here. We're not using Windows because we think it has growth potential. We're using Windows because everyone else uses Windows and thus it's easier for us to communicate. You don't genuinely buy Bitcoin because you want to use it. You buy Bitcoin because you expect others will want to buy it from you at a higher price. To put this in simpler terms: If we use something merely because we expect its use will grow in the future, it can't come to dominate the market it's in. To own Bitcoin means to forever have a sword of Damocles hanging over your head. You bought it because you expect its value to rise. At the same time, you are aware that it suffers from existential threats: Government intervention, a superior alternative taking over, a rush for the exit that the network can't process, a 51% attack, an unanticipated protocol flaw, an early adapter who wants to cash out. You're willing to take those risks when you expect its value may rise 100-fold. You're no longer willing to take those risks when you expect its value might double in the next ten years. The innate instability of Bitcoin ensures it will forever remain a niche phenomenon. Here's a question to ponder: Why buy Bitcoin, if you and your friends can invent your own coin that you distribute among yourselves? If I had to choose between entering a country where all the land is owned by a small minority or entering a country where I can still freely stake a claim to my own land, I would choose the latter option. People throughout history have understood this principle, which is why small communities came up with their own currency systems. The general trend throughout history has been that these alternative currency systems were destroyed by those who felt threatened by them. It's a little known fact that whenever local currencies emerge that seem to replace a government issued currency, governments tend to respond by shutting them down. It happened in Germany in 1931, it happened to the Liberty dollars in the United States and it happens in more situations, when the alternative currency becomes a threat. Of course, alternative currencies rarely become a genuine threat to the status quo. The reason is because people can generally create new units out of thin air. Whatever institute issues the alternative currency has no means to prohibit you from doing so. Today, we know that this is no longer a valid issue, due to cryptocurrency. As a result, this controlled issuance allows people to interpret alternative currencies as having a genuine value, based on the expectation that they will be able to find someone to sell it to when they feel the need to. What this means is a fantastic development for those of us who fear the extreme inequality we witness today. The nature of wealth is that it tends to accumulate. Those who are wealthy have the means to become wealthier, whereas those of us without wealth have no such means. Then eventually, when wealth has accumulated to extreme degrees, the elite has found itself in possession of most of the world's fertile land and natural resources. Then, those with their backs against the wall tend to rise up in revolt and exterminate the aristocracy. Today, after the invention of cryptocurrency, revolutions work differently. When we see that the game is rigged against us, that you own everything there is to own, we cease acknowledging your protocol and set up our own. We don't participate in games that we can't win. We're unable to ignore land ownership, if you cling onto the land, you risk ending up beneath the guillotine. We're perfectly able however, to stop pretending that a Bitcoin is something more than a series of ones and zeros in a digital database. This outcome is already unfolding. Why is Bitcoin losing its dominant position in the ecosystem? Because people realize that the game is rigged against them. Most people are simply not dumb enough to spend 10,000 dollar to buy one bitcoin. Smart people look for other opportunities. How does a revolution look? Consider what happened a few weeks ago, when Bitcoin ended up clogged and a competing protocol, Bitcoin Cash, suddenly grew enormously in value. This revolution was prematurely aborted, but the underlying issues have not been addressed. Bitcoin is still bumping up against its transaction capacity, wealth is still monopolized in the hands of a shrinking group, a single Bitcoin still has an intimidatingly high value to all but a small group of wealthy people who have no intention to actually use the currency. As a result, hedge-fund managers and trust fund kids are now buying first class tickets to board the Titanic. Understand the following principle: The unequal distribution of a currency undermines its use value. A currency owned by a small group of wealthy people is subject to dramatic price fluctuations. The stock market suffered a sudden dramatic collapse in 1929, during an era when wealth inequality was at its most extreme. The reason is simple. If the distribution of an asset is extreme in its inequality, it becomes impossible to estimate the fair value of the asset. This is the problem that Bitcoin inevitably suffers. The wealth inequality of Bitcoin increases over time, as hackers are able to steal Bitcoins, while those who find themselves wealthy all of a sudden tend to exit the scheme. As this unequal distribution grows worse, the instability of Bitcoin grows worse too. Economists have long known that wealth inequality and speculative bubbles go hand in hand. We see high prices right now for Bitcoin, but this is merely because nobody wants to exit at the moment. As soon as people want to leave the scheme, they'll find it's simply not possible at current prices. I expect that Bitcoin could see its price drop by 90% or more, over a period of days. People will find themselves unable to leave the scheme during such a period, because the transaction capacity on the network is limited. When Bitcoin falls apart, people will see that the underlying technology has more genuine potential than this particular faulty implementation. As a result, another redistribution of wealth will take place. One important thing to understand is that currencies gain value because of broad use. Broad use is accomplished, by broad distribution. In its early days, everyone could mine bitcoins and everyone could use faucets where they were handed out for free. As a result, a core community emerged. Note that the broad distribution that creates value does not have to contradict the unequal distribution that creates its high price. Value and price are not always well correlated. In regards to Bitcoin however, the more important point is that the currency grew in price by inheriting both characteristics: It's widely distributed, but most of the coins are actually held by a small minority. This small minority thus has a lot of wealth, on paper. They won't be able to actualize their wealth, if they tried to cash out the value of Bitcoin would take a plunge. You will find that Bitcoin's role as a speculative bubble will be replaced by various competing technologies, but its role as a digital currency will be replaced by currencies that are broadly distributed. As an example of how this will work in the future, consider Clams. Clams are a digital currency with an egalitarian and wide distribution. Anyone who owned a range of currencies ended up owning Clams. This has proved to be free money, for people who paid attention. The project was abandoned by its developer, but it demonstrated the way forward for others. There are now various Bitcoin forks, that hand out their coins to entire swathes of the population, while handing out extra coins to its own developers. Those developers do end up profiting off their invention, simply because the wide distribution creates interest in the coin. In contrast to what you might think, these various new currencies don't have to die out. In contrast to offline currencies, digital currencies can be extremely easily exchanged for one another. Merchants are able to accept coins they have never heard of for products they sell, simply because the underlying infrastructure is managed for them by third parties. So, what credible reason do people have to put their trust entirely in Bitcoin? The answer is simple: None. The herd has discovered Bitcoin, but the herd will consume it and bring about its demise, as the protocol can't scale. But what if I'm wrong? What if Bitcoin can scale? Well, the answer to that question is simple: Bitcoin can't scale. A form of Bitcoin that can scale ceases to be Bitcoin. Bitcoin is characterized by 1 MB blocks, which limits transaction capacity to 3 transactions per second, which is a fraction of what credit card companies can handle per second. If Bitcoin increases its block size, a new currency comes into existence, that needs new software and would leave users who fail to update their software at risk of losing their coins. What about off-chain scaling? Off-chain scaling requires settlement on the 1 MB blockchain. As a result, those who plan to develop off-chain scaling methods admit that Bitcoin would need 133 MB blocks, simply to accomplish the goals they have set for it. The system can't function under those conditions. What happens if Bitcoin does somehow develop off-chain scaling and starts to use 133 Mb blocks? The energy needed to mine Bitcoins increases dramatically. As a result, the number of people who can mine Bitcoin goes down, mining Bitcoin will only be an option for people in places with dramatically low energy prices. In addition, governments would be unlikely to accept having 90% of their national electricity use be devoted to mining Bitcoins. A currency that requires solving pointless computer problems to distribute it is a currency that remains forever a niche phenomenon. There will be no consensus around how to change the protocol, it will endlessly fracture until it renders itself obsolete. Important to understand is that cryptocurrencies don't allow you to hold onto extreme wealth. Consider Bitcoin. In its early days, there were plenty of smart people who saw its potential. But if you're a billionaire, how would you use a currency worth less than your own net worth, to increase your own wealth? The answer is that you can't. Small projects grow the most, but small projects can't fit your wealth inside of them. The effect this has is that the extremely unequal global distribution of wealth we witness today will be rectified. The habit that extreme wealth has is that it doesn't survive dramatic changes to the status quo. Until a few years ago, Bitcoin was the domain of basement dwelling NEETs and angry libertarian gun-nuts. But what we can do, anyone can do. If you live in a community that suffers poverty, you can set up your own currency that you use among each other and by virtue of the fact that you use it, it grows in value. What we have done with Bitcoin, has been done by other people too. If you don't think you can win under our rules, you change the rules and play your own game. There are now numerous currencies out there that have given birth to anonymous millionaires, while many more like me have made smaller fortunes. As I have mentioned before, technology is a self-limiting phenomenon. Technology in its most advanced stages consumes its own niche and as a result leaves us off without the technology. With self-driving cars, the car starts to die out. With lab-grown meat, meat dies out. The Internet, destroyed the concept of possession. Why should I buy a car, if it idles 95% of the time? Why should I visit a hotel, if people can rent out their room to me? Why should I own a book, if the information I seek is accessible under my fingertips? Why should I even own anything? In Sillicon Valley, digital nomads live without any genuine possessions, other than a smartphone, a laptop and the clothing they wear. What has remained off-limits so far, is the concept of wealth itself. The idea of wealth has survived the digital transition, even as everything else has been rendered obsolete. This is now coming to an end. We live in an era, where the concept of wealth is being deconstructed. One important principle in this observation is the issue of scarcity. Things have value, because demand for them is higher than their supply. In Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, houses are practically for sale for free, because the population has declined by a quarter since the fall of the Soviet Union. How can physical space have a price when there is more of it than anyone needs? It can't. It can only have a price when a small elite is allowed to keep it off limits to the rest of us, without making use of it themselves. But now, we face the finalization of the deconstruction of wealth. What does it mean to own anything? How can anything have value, if it is not scarce? Are you still wealthy, if your wealth must remain a secret? If you can't flaunt the fact that you're a millionaire, you can't genuinely be thought of as rich. Cryptomillionaires are men who have wealth they can't genuinely use. Under those conditions, the illusion of power begins to die. We see today that money is a joke. You can print money in your parents' basement and people will treat it as genuine money. The next step is the recognition that wealth is a joke. The society we are entering is one where wealth loses its relevance, until it eventually can't be defined. The very concept itself is ceasing to make sense. It is a nightmare we imposed upon ourselves and now we will no longer believe in it. The history of civilization is the exchange of wealth for fertility. The man accumulates resources, passes those on to his male descendants and the men monopolize young women to disproportionately pass on their own genes to the next generation. This became possible, when the concept of ownership became possible. There exists no inequality, among hunter-gatherers who have no ability to press a claim to resources. In primitive communities where everyone lives near a river dense with fish, some men end up claiming "ownership" over the river and soon enough we witness hereditary castes, monarchs and inherited wealth. In the Kalahari desert, where people depend on animals that run around and Mongongo nuts that can be consumed, there is no property, as there is nothing to claim ownership over. You might claim ownership over a plot of desert, sure, but how will you enforce it? You can't and thus everyone is equal. The concept of wealth had a nice run. It survived from the Neolithic revolution until the digital revolution, when it was rendered obsolete. It transformed young sturdy women with bows in their hands and hair on their legs into airbrushed trophy wives who sell their bodies to the highest bidders. What we know as a human being today is entirely corrupted by thousands of years of civilization, during which a corrupt aristocracy disproportionately passed on its genes and turned life itself into a cynical pursuit of material wealth. Today we are saying farewell to them. Have you ever thought about what we are leaving behind us? In a society where social status is inherited, like in India, you eventually end up with hereditary underclasses who are made to carry around leaking baskets with human excrement on their heads. Alexandra Kollontai became a Marxist after her aristocratic parents prohibited her from marrying a man she met at university, an engineering student of modest means. In the society we are giving birth to, everyone is free to pursue his deepest passions and to make use of his full potential, with no noble birthright standing in between him and his vision. Does this sound absurd to you? Over the top? Ridiculously optimistic? Well consider this: We have already gotten rid of the aristocracy. Western civilization used to be ruled by a hereditary caste that had complete control over society. The mechanization of agriculture in the 19th century and the abolition of the corn laws led to the demise of the aristocracies. The status quo could simply not be maintained. The concept of a republic, a nation not ruled by a king, was once utterly absurd. Books about the future written in the 18th century, like Samuel Madden's "Memoirs of the Twentieth Century", feature tall tales about religious theocracies in Italy and absolute monarchies in France. What none of them anticipated is that the kind of authoritarian systems they were familiar with could not sustain itself under modern conditions. It seemed as absurd to them that people could be ruled by anything other than inbred aristocrats, as it seems to you when I suggest to you that the concept of wealth itself is in the process of being rendered obsolete. Eventually we will develop a form of society, where money and financial transactions themselves are an outdated nuisance, an inefficiency. Consider this: You're traveling by train and find out that you don't have a public transport card. As a result, the automated gates that stay closed unless you check in with a card won't open for you. You're hesitant to jump over them, because a camera records anyone who tries to sneak in. You walk to a machine that allows you to buy a card, then you charge the card with money and check in at the gates before entering the train. Upon entering the train, you notice a man walks around who is tasked with ensuring that everyone bought a card. This is his job, his raison d'être. After the train arrives at its destination, you walk out, forget to check out and hurry back home, here you realize that you forgot to check out and money was automatically deducted from your account. You call the train company, wait ten minutes before someone picks up the phone and ask the lady on the other side of the line to send back the money that was excessively deducted from your card because you failed to check out. Does this sound like an efficient society to you? Consider a simple fact: In most of Western civilization, we house the homeless and provide them medical care because it's cheaper than to have emaciated people wander around in shopping malls who scare off the tourists, steal bicycles and spread tuberculosis. People find themselves wealthier, by sharing some of their wealth with those who are worst off. It's a more efficient manner of running society, that happens to be in everyone's best interest. Economic inequality, is an economic inefficiency. We live in a non-zero sum game. That is, our current situation is unoptimal, the economy as a whole can benefit from having less economic inequality. Now hear another plain fact: Your society punitively taxes your income, because you're not benefiting society by working a lot. If you work a 9 to 5 job, as most of us do, you get up, leave your house, get stuck in traffic, sit for 8 hours, which ensures chronic health problems down the line, then head back home during rush hour again. The reason you end up with a similar amount of money if you worked 32 hours, is because it happens to be in everyone's benefit. If you worked eight hours less every week, long-term unemployment would be prevented, because more people would be able to participate in the labor market. You would be able to pick up your kids from school, rather than sending them to daycare. Unless you're a genius, nobody benefits from you "working hard". That's why you're not earning more money from it. So now you have to ask yourself another question: If society doesn't benefit from your "work", then it's time for you to plan ahead for a future in which it renders your work obsolete. What will you do with your life, when the rat race comes to a stop? What will you do, if the neighbor who watches TV for fourteen hours a day ends up driving the same kind of car as you? If you can't spend your time "getting ahead", then what will you do with your life? That's a question that I want you to ponder. "Life will lose its meaning" You might say. But that's what all weak men believe who can't think outside of the paradigm they were born into. I live in a society where we no longer fight trench wars with neighboring countries or build colonial empires. My life doesn't feel less meaningful as a consequence. I live in a society where I'm not encouraged to go out and fight in defense of some fundamentalist cult. My life does not feel less meaningful. If I won't have to work to sustain myself, I will quite readily find the means to make my life meaningful. If anything, it would become easier for me to have a meaningful life. There's always something that can be done. We don't get to it, because we're forced to earn a living for ourselves. All geniuses begin their career with an excessive amount of free time. How could Darwin come up with the theory of evolution? Because he was free to visit the Galapagos islands. Why do we have seaweed that tastes like bacon in the supermarket here in the Netherlands? Because a guy had it served on his platter while he was on vacation abroad. Steve Jobs spent his twenties sleeping on people's floors, smoking pot, dropping acid and visiting guru's in India. People are not creative when they have hoops held in front of them. Innovation happens when people are left free to fool around. Most people are passionate about something. Even white working class men in early 20th century Western Europe who worked in factories had pigeons they trained and bred for races. When people have free time and more resources than they need to sustain themselves, wonderful things are produced. Those who think we need to be kept busy, have insufficient faith in man's ability to find meaning for himself. If people are nurtered well and treated with kindness, they are able to blossom and begin to improve the world they inhabit. If people turn into television addicted zombies when their chains are removed, it is because they were left injured by society. Dogs used for medical experiments who have their cages opened are hesitant to step out onto the green grass too. I prefer to look at the examples I know, of people who do understand how to deal with this transition. I think back to a woman I knew, who was granted a small fortune because she survived a plane crash unscathed. She travels across Europe in an old Volkswagen van with her boyfriend, I ran into her at a party held by her friends at a squatted countryside manor. She dances in the night and loves without hesitation and her eyes radiate pure joy. It is clear to me that most people are not ready for the transformations that are upon us. They don't want to live at the end of history. They want to head back to what they knew. But at the end of the day, what you are looking at is nothing to be afraid of. It's just green grass.
For Burst Marketing Team, ideas for Fundraising for free!
I have a way for the community to potentially raise funds for marketing efforts without having to start a donation fund or anything of the sort. I am not 100% sure if it would work, but honestly I don’t see why it wouldn’t. I think the Burst marketing team should create a free website (just use wix.com or something), populate it with generic Burst articles (what is Burst, why choose Burst, etc.), and then fill it with ads from several different ad groups. This website would need to have a weird name to keep it free (it costs a monthly fee to add a custom domain name) but that should be fine, because its not meant to be a landing page for new Burst community members. The point of the website is that members of the community can follow a link to the website and view/click on ads, generating revenue for the marketing team that runs the website. Each time a different community member does this it should generate some profit that can then be used by the Burst marketing team in their future efforts. This would provide a simple way for the average community member to feel useful and a part of something bigger with the coin, a simple easy way to raise funds for the parts of marketing where spending money is unavoidable, and best of all the community wouldn’t have to give up any of their Burst investment to do it! Likely the website would have to begin with just using anonymous ads (A-ads.com) because most other ad sites require your website to have so many daily views and a high enough alexa rank and such. (we could earn a bonus by making an initial account that “refers” the second main account, giving us an extra 50% on the first account from what we would be earning on the main account). However, with enough community support, we could bring this website into position to use ads from additional sources as well, boosting the income of the site. The reason we would want to have Burst articles on the site, instead of nothing but ads, is that many online ad companies require that your website have something useful/informational/entertaining on your website in order to use their platform. The one problem with this is how to ensure that funds are used properly and not being taken by one individual or skimmed off the top or anything. One solution I thought of is having a group of three people that all know the password for the marketing accounts. That way there is a check if one of the three becomes a bad apple, so the other two can call them out and a new account can be made if needed. We essentially only need one of the people to be trustworthy then, so you have a much better chance of not running into corruption (no way to completely avoid this unfortunately). My thought was maybe it should be one dev, one high up person in the Guerilla marketing team, and perhaps just one other well trusted community member. Additionally, weekly “transparency” posts could be made where screenshots of the amounts earned, as well as a release of the public bitcoin address the raised funds would be stored would be good to prevent skimming or stealing by those in charge of the funds. An additional way to potentially raise some funds is to create some Burst marketing accounts on bitcoin faucet websites, and then display the referral links on the reddit for community members to sign up there. Many sites give 50% commissions for referrals, so if just 200 community members used these links and earned 500 satoshi’s a day (depending on the site that can be easily achieved) the community would be generating 50,000 satoshi a day for marketing, without costing any of us a penny, or our burst! Just think if we could get 1000 members to use these links! Please let me know what people think about this idea. I would be happy to work on the website (its really easy to make a decent website on wix) but I don’t think it would be a bad idea for the ground work to come from better known/trusted community members to inspire trust in the running of the website. (Not to say I wouldn’t be trustworthy, but the more up and up everything is, the better confidence the community can have in the fundraising efforts). Also, one final note. I feel that even more important than getting onto new exchanges would be to get onto something like this https://www.coinpayments.net/index.php?ref=45fe6a4eec230a258de215d51b1f054e as it would allow merchants to accept Burst MUCH easier, which is even more important than new exchanges for adoption. They have a vote that essentially costs 1 whole bitcoin from a coin’s community for them to list the coin (and it must be in the top 200 of market cap, which we will hopefully be back in soon). Just my thoughts on it. Sorry for the lengthy post, but I hope something comes out of it! Edit: after some discussion on the burst marketing discord, I now see that this type of marketing scheme is probably not the direction that is ideal for Burst. As several dubious characters and communities leave the space, it would be very unwise for us to create a new plan consisting of similar schemes, such as scamming advertising platforms for funds as I was suggesting here. I simply want to see Burst succeed, and wanted to get the communities opinion on a plan that I had clearly not thought all the way through. Thank you to those who gave your thoughts and opinions about this idea. I feel that brainstorming as a group (even brainstorming bad ideas such as this one) is absolutely important to achieve success
