Le régulateur de l'État New York autorise le trading de 8 cryptomonnaies

Le Département des Services Financiers de l'État de New York (NYDFS ou DFS) a récemment publié une liste de cryptomonnaies autorisées au trading et à la garde.

La liste verte du régulateur financier de l'État de New York

Le New York State Department of Financial Services, l’autorité qui délivre la BitLicense aux exchanges, a défini une liste de cryptomonnaies pouvant être proposées à la négociation ou à la garde par les entreprises accréditées dans sa juridiction.
Cette « liste verte » regroupe dans la catégorie des « jetons approuvés pour le listing » le Bitcoin (BTC), l'Ether (ETH), le Bitcoin Cash (BCH), le Litecoin (LTC), le Binance USD (BUSD), le Gemini Dollar (GUSD), le Pax Gold (PAXG) et le Paxos Standard (PAX).
Le XRP et l'Ethereum Classic (ETC) viennent s'ajouter aux cryptomonnaies citées précédemment pour former les 10 « jetons approuvés pour la garde ».
La note publiée par le NYDFS indique ce qui suit :
« Toute entité autorisée par le DFS à mener une activité commerciale de monnaie virtuelle à New York peut utiliser des tokens sur la liste verte aux finalités admises ».
Toutefois, les entreprises concernées sont tenues de communiquer préalablement au régulateur américain, leur intention de faire usage de ces crypto-actifs.
Le NYDFS se réserve le droit de supprimer ou de limiter l'utilisation desdites devises numériques en tout temps. Il assure également que cette liste sera tenue à jour avec la possibilité de l'étendre ou de la raccourcir.
👉 À lire également : Qu'est-ce que la BitLicense et pourquoi est-elle si importante pour les exchanges ?

Le NYDFS réceptif aux nouvelles perspectives

Loin de l'aspect rigide que l'on pourrait associer aux normes, les directives du NYDFS jouent la carte de la flexibilité. En réalité, les exchanges autorisés à opérer dans l'État de New York peuvent offrir leurs services pour des cryptomonnaies qui ne figurent pas sur la liste.
Pour cela, ils doivent présenter une « politique de listing ou d'adoption de jetons » personnalisée selon leur modèle économique et leur exposition aux risques. Si elle obtient l'approbation du régulateur, l'entreprise sera alors en mesure de répertorier ou de prendre en charge des cryptos supplémentaires.
👉 Pour aller plus loin, lisez : Le NYDFS propose de nouvelles directives pour la BitLicense
L'État de New York déploie des efforts considérables pour réguler et donc légitimer l'industrie des cryptomonnaies. Cependant, dans de nombreux pays dans le monde, ce sujet reste tabou.

Minage de cryptomonnaies et impôts (particulier)

J'espère que contrairement à moi, vous ne perdez pas la tête dans ce confinement. J'ai cherché sur ce sub mais je n'ai pas vraiment trouvé de réponse à ma question, donc désolé si c'est un doublon.
Je viens de voir sur ce site que "les mineurs [de cryptomonnaies] sont obligés d'avoir un statut légal. Celui peut être la micro-entreprise". Cela me semble étrange, puisque j'imagine ne pas être le seul à vouloir me lancer dans ce processus juste par curiosité. Perso, j'aimerais juste miner de l'ethereum avec mes cartes graphiques lorsque je ne les utilise pas autrement, ce qui n'arrive qu'assez sporadiquement. Donc créer une micro-entreprise pour pouvoir ensuite déclarer mes 15euros de bénéfices me semble excessif.
J'apprécierais beaucoup si quelqu'un pouvait m'éclairer à ce sujet. Ai-je le droit de me lancer dans le minage en tant que particulier ou pas? Merci et protégez vous bien!

Bitstil.com Review: 1.7% daily for 15 working days

Bitstil.com is a high yield investment project which has been online since 05th April 2020. It mainly provides medium term deposit plans, and the shortest investment cycle is 15 working days. Admin bought Standard listing on my website last week. My former two withdrawal requests were both processed successfully into PerfectMoney wallet. Now let’s see something about it.
Started: 05th April 2020
My deposit: $200
The amount of 200 USD has been withdrawn from your account. Accounts: U3869878->U21015095. Memo: Shopping Cart Payment. Invoice 263, hyiper.. Date: 06:46 30.04.20. Batch: 312618568
Investment Plans
  1. Deposit $15–7500, earn 1.7% each working day for 15 working days and principal back
  2. Deposit $450–10000, earn 2.3% each working day for 30 working days and principal back
  3. Deposit $800–100000, earn 3.3% each working day for 50 working days and principal back
  4. Deposit $900–8500, earn 155% after 15 working days
  5. Deposit $900–15000, earn 250% after 30 working days
  6. Deposit $900–25000, earn 400% after 50 working days
  7. Deposit $2500–50000, earn 11% each working day for 15 working days and principal included
  8. Deposit $3000–75000, earn 12.5% each working day for 30 working days and principal included
  9. Deposit $3500–150000, earn 13.5% each working day for 50 working days and principal included
These are all the plans Bitstil.com provides. There is no doubt that the first plan is the most suitable one, because it only needs $15 to participate. Just as what I wrote in last articles, I only suggest to invest with your spare money because all HYIP projects are only gamble games online, so never invest what you can’t afford to lose.
Referral Commissions
For all registered users, Bitstil.com provides you with 2-tier referral commissions which is 5% and 2%. But for representatives, Bitstil.com offer 10% and 4% commissions, so if you want to be a representative member, please don’t hesitate to contact the admin.
If you register through my personal link below, then welcome to submit RCB request within 24 hours after investment. I will give back 5% of your deposit amount.
Payment Options
You can choose PerfectMoney, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, BitcoinCash, Dash, Dogecoin, Monero and Ripple to invest and withdraw.
Withdrawal Type
According to the rules on its website, “Withdrawal via Perfect Money and Payeer payment systems is usually processed instantly. Withdrawal via crypto-wallets may take up to 72 hours”. But in fact, my withdrawal throught PerfectMoney is also processed manually, not instantly. So just consider withdrawal requests to be in manual mode.

If you want to keep up with more updates, then you can follow its social account at the bottom of its website.
This is all the information I want to share with you, then what is your opinion? Welcome to leave your comment below.

Unitex-capital.com Review: 2.5% each working day for 78 working days and principal included

In this article, I will introduce Unitex-capital.com which started on 27th Feb, 2020. It provides medium and long term deposit plans, and you can break even as soon as 18 working days. The program is advertised by an investor who is also my friend during past years in HYIP industry. Both my former withdrawal requests were processed successfully into my wallet. Now let’s see the details of it.
Started: 27th Feb 2020
My deposits: $250
The amount of 250 USD has been withdrawn from your account. Accounts: U3869878->U22539007. Memo: Shopping Cart Payment. deposit hyiper.. Date: 03:52 29.02.20. Batch: 304807662
Investment Plans
  1. Deposit 50–499 dollars, earn 1.3% each working day for 18 working days and principal back
  2. Deposit 500–2999 dollars, earn 1.6% each working day for 28 working days and principal back
  3. Deposit 3000–9999 dollars, earn 1.8% each working day for 35 working days and principal back
  4. Deposit 0.01–4.99 BTC, earn 2.5% each working day for 78 working days and principal included
  5. Deposit 1–249 ETH, earn 2.5% each working day for 78 working days and principal included
These are only parts of the plans Unitex-capital.com provides. If you want to know more, you can register an account and see the details from your panel. Different ecurrencies have different plans. For crypto investment, you will earn crypto profit without exchange. For example, if you deposit 1 BTC, then you will earn 0.025 BTC every day. For USD investment, you can withdraw profit from different payment options, for example, if you deposit through Payeer, then you can withdraw profit to PerfectMoney account.
Referral Commissions
Unitex-capital.com divides promoters into 8 ranks below:
  1. Start: no personal and structural turnover required(4%-2%-1%-1%)
  2. Partner: personal $100, structural $50000(5%-3%-1%-1%-1%)
  3. Agent: personal $1000, structural $200000(6%-4%-2%-2%-1%-1%)
  4. Manager: personal $5000, structural $800000(7%-4%-2%-2%-1%-1%-1%)
  5. Director: personal $10000, structural $2500000(8%-5%-2%-2%-1%-1%-1%-1%)
  6. Gold: personal $15000, structural $8000000(9%-6%-3%-2%-2%-1%-1%-1%-1%)
  7. Platinum: personal $20000, structural $15000000(9%-6%-4%-3%-2%-1%-1%-1%-1%-1%)
  8. VIP: personal $30000, structural $30000000(10%-7%-5%-4%-3%-2%-1%-1%-1%-1%-1%)
The referral system developed is based on the static use of partnership levels (statuses) already achieved by a partner of Unitex Capital. It is the most equitable and progressive system of partnership, the essence of which is that the achieved personal turnover of investments of any client as well as achieved turnover of its partner structure will not decrease when some deposits are completed. Thus, partner statuses will only grow as long as personal and structural turnover of each customer grows. At the same time, regardless of the level of partner structure 100% of the nominal value of any partner deposit will be taken into account in the structural turnover.
Payment Options
Unitex-capital.com accepts PerfectMoney, Payeer, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
Withdrawal Type
All payment requests will be completed within 48 hours.
More Information
Unitex-capital.com designs an original template for its website, and it supports 9 languages currently which are already enough for globally investors. Unitex-capital.com registered a New Zealand investment company which can be check on their “About us” page.

Greg Maxwell /u/nullc (CTO of Blockstream) has sent me two private messages in response to my other post today (where I said "Chinese miners can only win big by following the market - not by following Core/Blockstream."). In response to his private messages, I am publicly posting my reply, here:

Note:
Greg Maxell nullc sent me 2 short private messages criticizing me today. For whatever reason, he seems to prefer messaging me privately these days, rather than responding publicly on these forums.
Without asking him for permission to publish his private messages, I do think it should be fine for me to respond to them publicly here - only quoting 3 phrases from them, namely: "340GB", "paid off", and "integrity" LOL.
There was nothing particularly new or revealing in his messages - just more of the same stuff we've all heard before. I have no idea why he prefers responding to me privately these days.
Everything below is written by me - I haven't tried to upload his 2 PMs to me, since he didn't give permission (and I didn't ask). The only stuff below from his 2 PMs is the 3 phrases already mentioned: "340GB", "paid off", and "integrity". The rest of this long wall of text is just my "open letter to Greg."
TL;DR: The code that maximally uses the available hardware and infrastructure will win - and there is nothing Core/Blockstream can do to stop that. Also, things like the Berlin Wall or the Soviet Union lasted for a lot longer than people expected - but, conversely, the also got swept away a lot faster than anyone expected. The "vote" for bigger blocks is an ongoing referendum - and Classic is running on 20-25% of the network (and can and will jump up to the needed 75% very fast, when investors demand it due to the inevitable "congestion crisis") - which must be a massive worry for Greg/Adam/Austin and their backers from the Bilderberg Group. The debate will inevitably be decided in favor of bigger blocks - simply because the market demands it, and the hardware / infrastructure supports it.
Hello Greg Maxwell nullc (CTO of Blockstream) -
Thank you for your private messages in response to my post.
I respect (most of) your work on Bitcoin, but I think you were wrong on several major points in your messages, and in your overall economic approach to Bitcoin - as I explain in greater detail below:
Correcting some inappropriate terminology you used
As everybody knows, Classic or Unlimited or Adaptive (all of which I did mention specifically in my post) do not support "340GB" blocks (which I did not mention in my post).
It is therefore a straw-man for you to claim that big-block supporters want "340GB" blocks. Craig Wright may want that - but nobody else supports his crazy posturing and ridiculous ideas.
You should know that what actual users / investors (and Satoshi) actually do want, is to let the market and the infrastructure decide on the size of actual blocks - which could be around 2 MB, or 4 MB, etc. - gradually growing in accordance with market needs and infrastructure capabilities (free from any arbitrary, artificial central planning and obstructionism on the part of Core/Blockstream, and its investors - many of whom have a vested interest in maintaining the current debt-backed fiat system).
You yourself (nullc) once said somewhere that bigger blocks would probably be fine - ie, they would not pose a decentralization risk. (I can't find the link now - maybe I'll have time to look for it later.) I found the link:
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/43mond/even_a_year_ago_i_said_i_though_we_could_probably/
I am also surprised that you now seem to be among those making unfounded insinuations that posters such as myself must somehow be "paid off" - as if intelligent observers and participants could not decide on their own, based on the empirical evidence, that bigger blocks are needed, when the network is obviously becoming congested and additional infrastructure is obviously available.
Random posters on Reddit might say and believe such conspiratorial nonsense - but I had always thought that you, given your intellectual abilities, would have been able to determine that people like me are able to arrive at supporting bigger blocks quite entirely on our own, based on two simple empirical facts, ie:
  • the infrastructure supports bigger blocks now;
  • the market needs bigger blocks now.
In the present case, I will simply assume that you might be having a bad day, for you to erroneously and groundlessly insinuate that I must be "paid off" in order to support bigger blocks.
Using Occam's Razor
The much simpler explanation is that bigger-block supporters believe will get "paid off" from bigger gains for their investment in Bitcoin.
Rational investors and users understand that bigger blocks are necessary, based on the apparent correlation (not necessarily causation!) between volume and price (as mentioned in my other post, and backed up with graphs).
And rational network capacity planners (a group which you should be in - but for some mysterious reason, you're not) also understand that bigger blocks are necessary, and quite feasible (and do not pose any undue "centralization risk".)
As I have been on the record for months publicly stating, I understand that bigger blocks are necessary based on the following two objective, rational reasons:
  • because I've seen the graphs; and
  • because I've seen the empirical research in the field (from guys like Gavin and Toomim) showing that the network infrastructure (primarily bandwidth and latency - but also RAM and CPU) would also support bigger blocks now (I believe they showed that 3-4MB blocks would definitely work fine on the network now - possibly even 8 MB - without causing undue centralization).
Bigger-block supporters are being objective; smaller-block supporters are not
I am surprised that you no longer talk about this debate in those kind of objective terms:
  • bandwidth, latency (including Great Firewall of China), RAM, CPU;
  • centralization risk
Those are really the only considerations which we should be discussing in this debate - because those are the only rational considerations which might justify the argument for keeping 1 MB.
And yet you, and Adam Back adam3us, and your company Blockstream (financed by the Bilderberg Group, which has significant overlap with central banks and the legacy, debt-based, violence-backed fiat money system that has been running and slowing destroying our world) never make such objective, technical arguments anymore.
And when you make unfounded conspiratorial, insulting insinuations saying people who disagree with you on the facts must somehow be "paid off", then you are now talking like some "nobody" on Reddit - making wild baseless accusations that people must be "paid off" to support bigger blocks, something I had always thought was "beneath" you.
Instead, Occams's Razor suggests that people who support bigger blocks are merely doing so out of:
  • simple, rational investment policy; and
  • simple, rational capacity planning.
At this point, the burden is on guys like you (nullc) to explain why you support a so-called scaling "roadmap" which is not aligned with:
  • simple, rational investment policy; and
  • simple, rational capacity planning
The burden is also on guys like you to show that you do not have a conflict of interest, due to Blockstream's highly-publicized connections (via insurance giant AXA - whose CED is also the Chairman of the Bilderberg Group; and companies such as the "Big 4" accounting firm PwC) to the global cartel of debt-based central banks with their infinite money-printing.
In a nutshell, the argument of big-block supporters is simple:
If the hardware / network infrastructure supports bigger blocks (and it does), and if the market demands it (and it does), then we certainly should use bigger blocks - now.
You have never provided a counter-argument to this simple, rational proposition - for the past few years.
If you have actual numbers or evidence or facts or even legitimate concerns (regarding "centralization risk" - presumably your only argument) then you should show such evidence.
But you never have. So we can only assume either incompetence or malfeasance on your part.
As I have also publicly and privately stated to you many times, with the utmost of sincerity: We do of course appreciate the wealth of stellar coding skills which you bring to Bitcoin's cryptographic and networking aspects.
But we do not appreciate the obstructionism and centralization which you also bring to Bitcoin's economic and scaling aspects.
Bitcoin is bigger than you.
The simple reality is this: If you can't / won't let Bitcoin grow naturally, then the market is going to eventually route around you, and billions (eventually trillions) of investor capital and user payments will naturally flow elsewhere.
So: You can either be the guy who wrote the software to provide simple and safe Bitcoin scaling (while maintaining "reasonable" decentralization) - or the guy who didn't.
The choice is yours.
The market, and history, don't really care about:
  • which "side" you (nullc) might be on, or
  • whether you yourself might have been "paid off" (or under a non-disclosure agreement written perhaps by some investors associated the Bilderberg Group and the legacy debt-based fiat money system which they support), or
  • whether or not you might be clueless about economics.
Crypto and/or Bitcoin will move on - with or without you and your obstructionism.
Bigger-block supporters, including myself, are impartial
By the way, my two recent posts this past week on the Craig Wright extravaganza...
...should have given you some indication that I am being impartial and objective, and I do have "integrity" (and I am not "paid off" by anybody, as you so insultingly insinuated).
In other words, much like the market and investors, I don't care who provides bigger blocks - whether it would be Core/Blockstream, or Bitcoin Classic, or (the perhaps confusingly-named) "Bitcoin Unlimited" (which isn't necessarily about some kind of "unlimited" blocksize, but rather simply about liberating users and miners from being "limited" by controls imposed by any centralized group of developers, such as Core/Blockstream and the Bilderbergers who fund you).
So, it should be clear by now I don't care one way or the other about Gavin personally - or about you, or about any other coders.
I care about code, and arguments - regardless of who is providing such things - eg:
  • When Gavin didn't demand crypto proof from Craig, and you said you would have: I publicly criticized Gavin - and I supported you.
  • When you continue to impose needless obstactles to bigger blocks, then I continue to criticize you.
In other words, as we all know, it's not about the people.
It's about the code - and what the market wants, and what the infrastructure will bear.
You of all people should know that that's how these things should be decided.
Fortunately, we can take what we need, and throw away the rest.
Your crypto/networking expertise is appreciated; your dictating of economic parameters is not.
As I have also repeatedly stated in the past, I pretty much support everything coming from you, nullc:
  • your crypto and networking and game-theoretical expertise,
  • your extremely important work on Confidential Transactions / homomorphic encryption.
  • your desire to keep Bitcoin decentralized.
And I (and the network, and the market/investors) will always thank you profusely and quite sincerely for these massive contributions which you make.
But open-source code is (fortunately) à la carte. It's mix-and-match. We can use your crypto and networking code (which is great) - and we can reject your cripple-code (artificially small 1 MB blocks), throwing it where it belongs: in the garbage heap of history.
So I hope you see that I am being rational and objective about what I support (the code) - and that I am also always neutral and impartial regarding who may (or may not) provide it.
And by the way: Bitcoin is actually not as complicated as certain people make it out to be.
This is another point which might be lost on certain people, including:
And that point is this:
The crypto code behind Bitcoin actually is very simple.
And the networking code behind Bitcoin is actually also fairly simple as well.
Right now you may be feeling rather important and special, because you're part of the first wave of development of cryptocurrencies.
But if the cryptocurrency which you're coding (Core/Blockstream's version of Bitcoin, as funded by the Bilderberg Group) fails to deliver what investors want, then investors will dump you so fast your head will spin.
Investors care about money, not code.
So bigger blocks will eventually, inevitably come - simply because the market demand is there, and the infrastructure capacity is there.
It might be nice if bigger blocks would come from Core/Blockstream.
But who knows - it might actually be nicer (in terms of anti-fragility and decentralization of development) if bigger blocks were to come from someone other than Core/Blockstream.
So I'm really not begging you - I'm warning you, for your own benefit (your reputation and place in history), that:
Either way, we are going to get bigger blocks.
Simply because the market wants them, and the hardware / infrastructre can provide them.
And there is nothing you can do to stop us.
So the market will inevitably adopt bigger blocks either with or without you guys - given that the crypto and networking tech behind Bitcoin is not all that complex, and it's open-source, and there is massive pent-up investor demand for cryptocurrency - to the tune of multiple billions (or eventually trillions) of dollars.
It ain't over till the fat lady sings.
Regarding the "success" which certain small-block supports are (prematurely) gloating about, during this time when a hard-fork has not happened yet: they should bear in mind that the market has only begun to speak.
And the first thing it did when it spoke was to dump about 20-25% of Core/Blockstream nodes in a matter of weeks. (And the next thing it did was Gemini added Ethereum trading.)
So a sizable percentage of nodes are already using Classic. Despite desperate, irrelevant attempts of certain posters on these forums to "spin" the current situation as a "win" for Core - it is actually a major "fail" for Core.
Because if Core/Blocksteam were not "blocking" Bitcoin's natural, organic growth with that crappy little line of temporary anti-spam kludge-code which you and your minions have refused to delete despite Satoshi explicitly telling you to back in 2010 ("MAX_BLOCKSIZE = 1000000"), then there would be something close to 0% nodes running Classic - not 25% (and many more addable at the drop of a hat).
This vote is ongoing.
This "voting" is not like a normal vote in a national election, which is over in one day.
Unfortunately for Core/Blockstream, the "voting" for Classic and against Core is actually two-year-long referendum.
It is still ongoing, and it can rapidly swing in favor of Classic at any time between now and Classic's install-by date (around January 1, 2018 I believe) - at any point when the market decides that it needs and wants bigger blocks (ie, due to a congestion crisis).
You know this, Adam Back knows this, Austin Hill knows this, and some of your brainwashed supporters on censored forums probably know this too.
This is probably the main reason why you're all so freaked out and feel the need to even respond to us unwashed bigger-block supporters, instead of simply ignoring us.
This is probably the main reason why Adam Back feels the need to keep flying around the world, holding meetings with miners, making PowerPoint presentations in English and Chinese, and possibly also making secret deals behind the scenes.
This is also why Theymos feels the need to censor.
And this is perhaps also why your brainwashed supporters from censored forums feel the need to constantly make their juvenile, content-free, drive-by comments (and perhaps also why you evidently feel the need to privately message me your own comments now).
Because, once again, for the umpteenth time in years, you've seen that we are not going away.
Every day you get another worrisome, painful reminder from us that Classic is still running on 25% of "your" network.
And everyday get another worrisome, painful reminder that Classic could easily jump to 75% in a matter of days - as soon as investors see their $7 billion wealth starting to evaporate when the network goes into a congestion crisis due to your obstructionism and insistence on artificially small 1 MB blocks.
If your code were good enough to stand on its own, then all of Core's globetrotting and campaigning and censorship would be necessary.
But you know, and everyone else knows, that your cripple-code does not include simple and safe scaling - and the competing code (Classic, Unlimited) does.
So your code cannot stand on its own - and that's why you and your supporters feel that it's necessary to keep up the censorship and and the lies and the snark. It's shameful that a smart coder like you would be involved with such tactics.
Oppressive regimes always last longer than everyone expects - but they also also collapse faster than anyone expects.
We already have interesting historical precedents showing how grassroots resistance to centralized oppression and obstructionism tends to work out in the end. The phenomenon is two-fold:
  • The oppression usually drags on much longer than anyone expects; and
  • The liberation usually happens quite abruptly - much faster than anyone expects.
The Berlin Wall stayed up much longer than everyone expected - but it also came tumbling down much faster than everyone expected.
Examples of opporessive regimes that held on surprisingly long, and collapsed surpisingly fast, are rather common - eg, the collapse of the Berlin Wall, or the collapse of the Soviet Union.
(Both examples are actually quite germane to the case of Blockstream/Core/Theymos - as those despotic regimes were also held together by the fragile chewing gum and paper clips of denialism and censorship, and the brainwashed but ultimately complacent and fragile yes-men that inevitably arise in such an environment.)
The Berlin Wall did indeed seem like it would never come down. But the grassroots resistance against it was always there, in the wings, chipping away at the oppression, trying to break free.
And then when it did come down, it happened in a matter of days - much faster than anyone had expected.
That's generally how these things tend to go:
  • oppression and obstructionism drag on forever, and the people oppressing freedom and progress erroneously believe that Core/Blockstream is "winning" (in this case: Blockstream/Core and you and Adam and Austin - and the clueless yes-men on censored forums like r\bitcoin who mindlessly support you, and the obedient Chinese miners who, thus far, have apparently been to polite to oppose you) ;
  • then one fine day, the market (or society) mysteriously and abruptly decides one day that "enough is enough" - and the tsunami comes in and washes the oppressors away in the blink of an eye.
So all these non-entities with their drive-by comments on these threads and their premature gloating and triumphalism are irrelevant in the long term.
The only thing that really matters is investors and users - who are continually applying grassroots pressure on the network, demanding increased capacity to keep the transactions flowing (and the price rising).
And then one day: the Berlin Wall comes tumbling down - or in the case of Bitcoin: a bunch of mining pools have to switch to Classic, and they will do switch so fast it will make your head spin.
Because there will be an emergency congestion crisis where the network is causing the price to crash and threatening to destroy $7 billion in investor wealth.
So it is understandable that your supports might sometimes prematurely gloat, or you might feel the need to try to comment publicly or privately, or Adam might feel the need to jet around the world.
Because a large chunk of people have rejected your code.
And because many more can and will - and they'll do in the blink of an eye.
Classic is still out there, "waiting in the wings", ready to be installed, whenever the investors tell the miners that it is needed.
Fortunately for big-block supporters, in this "election", the polls don't stay open for just one day, like in national elections.
The voting for Classic is on-going - it runs for two years. It is happening now, and it will continue to happen until around January 1, 2018 (which is when Classic-as-an-option has been set to officially "expire").
To make a weird comparison with American presidential politics: It's kinda like if either Hillary or Trump were already in office - but meanwhile there was also an ongoing election (where people could change their votes as often as they want), and the day when people got fed up with the incompetent incumbent, they can throw them out (and install someone like Bernie instead) in the blink of an eye.
So while the inertia does favor the incumbent (because people are lazy: it takes them a while to become informed, or fed up, or panicked), this kind of long-running, basically never-ending election favors the insurgent (because once the incumbent visibly screws up, the insurgent gets adopted - permanently).
Everyone knows that Satoshi explicitly defined Bitcoin to be a voting system, in and of itself. Not only does the network vote on which valid block to append next to the chain - the network also votes on the very definition of what a "valid block" is.
Go ahead and re-read the anonymous PDF that was recently posted on the subject of how you are dangerously centralizing Bitcoin by trying to prevent any votes from taking place:
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/4hxlquhoh_a_warning_regarding_the_onset_of_centralised/
The insurgent (Classic, Unlimited) is right (they maximally use available bandwidth) - while the incumbent (Core) is wrong (it needlessly throws bandwidth out the window, choking the network, suppressing volume, and hurting the price).
And you, and Adam, and Austin Hill - and your funders from the Bilderberg Group - must be freaking out that there is no way you can get rid of Classic (due to the open-source nature of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin).
Cripple-code will always be rejected by the network.
Classic is already running on about 20%-25% of nodes, and there is nothing you can do to stop it - except commenting on these threads, or having guys like Adam flying around the world doing PowerPoints, etc.
Everything you do is irrelevant when compared against billions of dollars in current wealth (and possibly trillions more down the road) which needs and wants and will get bigger blocks.
You guys no longer even make technical arguments against bigger blocks - because there are none: Classic's codebase is 99% the same as Core, except with bigger blocks.
So when we do finally get bigger blocks, we will get them very, very fast: because it only takes a few hours to upgrade the software to keep all the good crypto and networking code that Core/Blockstream wrote - while tossing that single line of 1 MB "max blocksize" cripple-code from Core/Blockstream into the dustbin of history - just like people did with the Berlin Wall.

Crypton exchange: A Revolutionary Cryptocurrency Exchange!

The emergence of Cryptocurrecy has brought a drastic change into our world and has given redefinition to the way things are done all around the world.
The financial world and the entire global economy have felt the undeniable impact of the digital currency.
The truth is that, cryptocurrency has given lots of relief to people in the area of worldwide and border less transactions. Sending and receiving funds from any part of the world to another has been made easy without passing through the financial institutions which makes the transaction easier, faster and efficient.
The digital currency has not only given transaction ease to the users but also fortune. Many people’s life have been changed positively by the virtue of crytocurrency trading and transactions as they engage it as a means of investment and trade when the value goes up.
Meanwhile, a major challenge facing the cryptocurrency-world is the problem of crypto-exchange. Man people have had their fingers burnt by making transactions on some unwholesome crypto-exchange platforms.
Problems of some Crypto-exchange Platforms. High transaction fee /commission A common problem with many existing cryptocurrency exchange platform is high rate of commission charged. It might so frustrating for crypto traders both old and new when one discovers that the fees charged by exchange platforms are too exuberant. Sometimes it leaves you with no option than to leave your coins in your wallet instead of trading it with huge exchange commission.
Security Security is a major issue bedeviling cryptocurrency exchange platforms all around the world. This does not exclude even the exchanges that have made names for themselves in the crypto-world. We have cases of hacking into the exchange websites and carting away with huge fortune from innocent traders. There are cases of compromise in exchange wallets which has led to great losses.
Deposits/Withdrawal Issues On some crypto-exchage platforms, you paid certain percentage of the coin you are about to deposit for exchange, and not only that, but also you pay trading fee and when you are done with transaction and want to withdraw, you still pay some stipulated fees. This kind of experience makes crypto-exchanges look like scam to many people.
Customer Support Service Part of the problems of many crypto exchange platforms is lack of responsive support team or customer care unit to put users through and offer assistant when needed. It takes days for the customer care service of some exchange platform to response to your queries.
FIAT Conversion Problem Many of platforms that deal on cryptocurrency exchange only deal on crypto to crypto exchange. That is, changing a cryptocurrency coin like Ethereum (ETH) into Bitcoin (BTC) but leave the user with task of getting their crypto coins converted into FIAT the conventional currency or converting FIAT into cryptocurrency
The good news! The good news is that, there is an exchange platform known as Crypton exchange which has come to profer solution to the problem posed by many existing crypto currency exchange platforms in a unique and definite way.
Crypton’s primary task is to create the safest and most convenient cryptocurrency exchange for customers, with distinctive features. Our main focus will be low fees and real-time support for users as well as a simple and clear UI/UX experience. Whether you’re depositing, withdrawing or simply exchanging crypto for FIAT, the design will be intuitive and built with the user in mind Crypton gives its vision of another standard for digital money trade filling the hole among crypto and fiat cash while concentrating on a client’s assets, as a matter of first importance.
Features of Crypton Exchange • Low transaction fee
The commission charged by crypton exchange is very low compared to other existing cryptocurrency exchange platforms. The trade gives low comission on making tasks 0.1% while if you are paying with crypto and 0.05% if paying in the exchange native token (CRP).
In that sense, exchanging tasks, buy and selling are ending up progressively gainful and increasingly available to everybody. The accompanying way, the organization will make up for it and get paid by virtue of turnover, yet not on the ground of high comissions charged.

And here’s a blast from the past. BlackBullShark stuck a “Skip Work and Parachute” sticker on a signboard 1.5 years back. And this is how it looks now:
<- Original sticker. Courtesy: Chris / Same sticker today / Closeup ->
We used to have a blast with these stickers. Cap shipped them far and wide to Parachuters to see them pop up at random locations. Gian put up a few at his local Wegmans in July last year:
Gian: “If you zoom in on the cart return in the background I put one there too”
aXpire’s 1 pager featuring highlights from all its products was published on Bitcointalk this week. Catch up on the latest at aXpire from their weekly update video.

Plus, COO Matthew Markham sat down for a podcast with ETHOS CEO Shingo Lavine to discuss how their companies started and mutual learnings from their experience. Click here to read WednesdayCoin’s weekly airdrop post. The Birdchain SMS beta test phase is underway. The team shared their insights and observations from it. Bounty0x CEO Angelo Adam appeared on BoldTV this week to talk about freelancing, the crypto space in general and specifically about the platform. You can catch him at 24:20. If you didn’t know already, any ERC20 token can be listed on the SwitchDex for free. Just click on the “Add Token” option in the Token dropdown. Switch also released an update report covering the latest in Switchverse. Fantom’s FTM token got listed on Beaxy. In this week’s technical literature, CIO Michael Kong discusses Fantom’s planned governance structure for its mainnet. Thanks a ton for the leg up, Uptrennd! You guys are gems.
Another one of CF’s crypto powered lunches with the 2gether card
Opacity announced a hackathon event in partnership with QLC to improve user privacy. Registrations started on 22nd August. The latest District0x weekly talks about dev updates to the for Meme Factory, upgrades to the voting mechanism etc. You can also look for bounties posted by District0x on Bounties Network. The latest meme contest is out as well. The theme is “what grinds your gears about crypto”. Hydro did a webinar this week on Libra v/s Molecule vis-à-vis remittances. Hydro’s storage solution Vault is slated to launch soon. The latest developer and community updates cover all the happenings of the past few weeks in HYDROverse. A new contest dropped this week – The Hydro Telegram Contest. Sudden trivias on the project with 1000 HYDRO up for grabs. Woot! Another great use-case of ParJar. Biz Dev Mark Anstead sat down for a Windshield podcast to talk all things Hydro. A couple of weeks back, a sneak peek of the full roadmap was released. This week, we got to see the detailed roadmap. Updates to Silent Notary’s Ubikiri wallet can be seen here and here.
<-Weekends @Parachute / Chris buys PAR keychains from @k16v5q5 (remember from before?)->
Sentivate’s SNTVT token was listed on CoinExchange this week. They also entered into a partnership with The Daily Chain (TDC) as their Media Partner for a month.

Could you please explain the Javvy ICO terms? Javvy integrates its decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (transparent arbitrage bot) seamlessly into the comprehensive Javvy wallet solution, eliminating the current need for multiple wallets and exchanges.

Certainly!
Our ICO is designed to accept only ETH (Ethers or Ethereum) at a price of 0.0004 ETH or 2,500 Javvy tokens (JVY) for every ETH. Anyone wanting to buy in with other cryptocurrencies will need to visit our online store to purchase tokens manually.
We set a maximum cap of $8,000,000 USD, which is proactively compliant with proposed UK ICO regulations.
The total supply of tokens will be 333,333,333.333333, with up to 250,000,000 available for sale in the ICO (until max cap of $8MM USD is reached). Any unsold tokens will remain in a pool to be trans-mined, a process by which customers are rewarded with loyalty points (much like a points reward on credit purchases).
Founder tokens are locked for one(1) year after the ICO ends.

It might so frustrating for crypto traders both old and new when one discovers that the fees charged by exchange platforms are too exuberant. Sometimes it leaves you with no option than to leave your coins in your wallet instead of trading it with huge exchange commission.
Security Security is a major issue bedeviling cryptocurrency exchange platforms all around the world. This does not exclude even the exchanges that have made names for themselves in the crypto-world. We have cases of hacking into the exchange websites and carting away with huge fortune from innocent traders. There are cases of compromise in exchange wallets which has led to great losses.
Deposits/Withdrawal Issues On some crypto-exchage platforms, you paid certain percentage of the coin you are about to deposit for exchange, and not only that, but also you pay trading fee and when you are done with transaction and want to withdraw, you still pay some stipulated fees. This kind of experience makes crypto-exchanges look like scam to many people.
Customer Support Service Part of the problems of many crypto exchange platforms is lack of responsive support team or customer care unit to put users through and offer assistant when needed. It takes days for the customer care service of some exchange platform to response to your queries.
FIAT Conversion Problem Many of platforms that deal on cryptocurrency exchange only deal on crypto to crypto exchange. That is, changing a cryptocurrency coin like Ethereum (ETH) into Bitcoin (BTC) but leave the user with task of getting their crypto coins converted into FIAT the conventional currency or converting FIAT into cryptocurrency
The good news! The good news is that, there is an exchange platform known as Crypton exchange which has come to profer solution to the problem posed by many existing crypto currency exchange platforms in a unique and definite way.
Crypton’s primary task is to create the safest and most convenient cryptocurrency exchange for customers, with distinctive features. Our main focus will be low fees and real-time support for users as well as a simple and clear UI/UX experience. Whether you’re depositing, withdrawing or simply exchanging crypto for FIAT, the design will be intuitive and built with the user in mind Crypton gives its vision of another standard for digital money trade filling the hole among crypto and fiat cash while concentrating on a client’s assets, as a matter of first importance.
Features of Crypton Exchange • Low transaction fee
The commission charged by crypton exchange is very low compared to other existing cryptocurrency exchange platforms. The trade gives low comission on making tasks 0.1% while if you are paying with crypto and 0.05% if paying in the exchange native token (CRP).
In that sense, exchanging tasks, buy and selling are ending up progressively gainful and increasingly available to everybody. The accompanying way, the organization will make up for it and get paid by virtue of turnover, yet not on the ground of high comissions charged.

[À Lire] Tout sur Monero, résumé en Français

Qu'est ce que Monero (XMR)?
Monero est une (crypto-)devise sécurisée, personnelle et intraçable. Monero est Open-source et librement accessible à tous.
Monero est une vraie monnaie que tout le monde peut réellement utiliser dans la vraie vie. Il permet simplement de recevoir des paiements sans de soucier de la provenance des fonds. Avec les systèmes dit 'transparents' comme Bitcoin, Ethereum, Verge ou Dash (par exemple), les personnes ne peuvent qu'espérer (ou bien passer pas mal de temps à vérifier) que le payeur n'a pas utilisé ses fonds de manière frauduleuse. De plus, les vendeurs ne souhaitent pas que les acheteurs soit tracés et connus de tout, tout comme chacun d'entre nous ne veut pas que tout le monde sache combien nous dépensions. Si je dépense plus que je ne devrais sur Amazon, c'est mon problème.
Monero est différent car chacune des transactions est toujours privée. Il n'y a aucun moyen pour une mine ou une plateforme d’échange de devise de désactiver ces transactions privées. Par conséquent, l’anonymat offert par Monero dépasse largement celui des autres cryptomonnaies. À ce jour (depuis le fork de septembre), 100% des transactions cachent l'émetteur, le receveur et le montant. Il n'y a également aucune raison d'avoir peur d'effectuer une transaction privée, puisque toutes les transactions Monero le sont. En aucun cas une transaction peut "briller" plus que les autres.
Cette "privacy" (ce qui relève du privé, au sens personnel) est apportée par ces 4 principales technos :
Il y a bien d'autres choses qui font que Monero est un bon projet :
Maintenant que vous être familier avec Monero, et êtes convaincu qu'il utilise ce qui se fait de mieux en cryptographie, qu'apporte-t-il de plus par rapport aux autres crypto-monnaies ?
Suis-je un forcément un délinquant si j'utilise Monero ?
Non, bien sûr que non. Monero se considère comme la monnaie de la liberté. Il est possible d'en faire ce que l'on veut, où on veut, quand on le veux. Cependant, il n'est évidement pas conseillé de mettre tout ses revenus dedans, bien que nous croyons fortement dans son utilité dans la vie réelle, il y a toujours un risque non négligeable lié aux marchés boursiers. Après, ce que vous en faites ne nous regarde pas ! (et il nous serait impossible de le savoir ! ;) )
D'où vient le mot "Monero" ?
Monero vient de l’Espéranto. Il signifie "pièce de monnaie", "monnaie" ou "devise". Le pluriel de Monero est "Moneroj"
OK. Comment débuter ? Comment stocker mes Moneroj ?
Nous recommandons UNIQUEMENT l'usage des logiciels officiels:
Guide d'installation pour grand-maman !
Y a-t-il un portefeuille léger pour Monero ?
Pas pour le moment, mais il est possible d'utiliser l'interface officielle en la connectant à un nœud existant. C'est vrai que le client officiel est relativement lourd, mais les équipes de devs travaillent durement à son allègement.
Y a-t-il d'autre moyen de stocker des Moneroj ?
Oui, il existe plusieurs portefeuille pour mobile, mais nous ne les recommandons absolument pas car ils ne sont pas issus de développements officiels. Certains ont fait état de perte de Moneroj, de vol ou autre. Si vous voulez tout de même utilisez un portefeuille tiers, faites le en tout état de cause et de connaissance, et pour de petites sommes. La plupart de ces portefeuilles tiers possèdent vos clés privées (ce qui sert à générer votre adresse, et ne doit absolument pas être connue de quiconque (sauf peut-être un avocat, pour vos enfants au cas où )) et donc les moneroj présents ne vous appartiennent pas.
Comment acheter des moneroj ?
Il existe plusieurs plateformes d’échange de cryptomonnaies contre des devises.
Pour changer des crypto-monnaies entre elles:
En France, il existe La Maison du Bitcoin, qui permet d'acheter des bitcoin par virement ou carte bleue. Il suffit ensuite de changer les bitcoins pour des Moneroj (XMR) via Shapeshift ou une des plateformes d’échange listées ci-dessus.
MINING:
Où trouver une bonne mine (pool) ? Monero Pools
Quel logiciel de minage utiliser ? CPU:
GPU:
J'ai un commerçant qui accepte uniquement les bitcoins, mais bitcoin n'est ni privé ni anonyme. Comment faire ?
Il est possible d'utiliser XMR.TO, mais il serait bien de sensibiliser votre vendeur sur l'absence de privacy et d’anonymat inhérent au Bitcoin. ;)

How 8Pay Makes it Easy for E-Commerce Startups to Accept Cryptocurrency

How 8Pay Makes it Easy for E-Commerce Startups to Accept Cryptocurrency

https://preview.redd.it/b2386ar3pse31.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=5e192c45aa6d8a319ec470c001e8f761d437b9ae
When you’re just getting started in business, there are dozens of pressing tasks to take care of before you can earn so much as a cent. This is particularly true when you’re launching an online store. Before your virtual cash register has uttered its first “cha-ching,” you’ve got to connect to payment rails, undergo credit checks, and pay significant fees for the privilege.
Most e-commerce stores will accept payment in Visa, MasterCard, PayPal and similar e-money services. Each of these comes with its own integration and setup requirements. Given its low adoption in comparison to credit card, cryptocurrency acceptance may not be top of your to-do list. That’s a decision you may wish to reconsider, however, after discovering the ease and benefits of 8Pay. Not only are there no upfront costs, but incorporating 8Pay into your e-commerce business allows you to transact instantly, with no waiting for credit lines or approval.
If one of the reasons for starting your own business was to be your own boss, then cryptocurrency should be a natural fit. As permissionless money, it aligns perfectly with the ethos of entrepreneurs and free thinkers. If that’s you, read on to learn how to add 8Pay to your online store and why.
First steps
8Pay operates on the Ethereum network. Thus, you’ll need a non-custodial Ethereum wallet (i.e. one that you control the keys for) to get started. If you don’t already have an Ethereum wallet, you can create one using a service like MetaMask, MyCrypto, or MyEtherWallet. Next, visit the 8Pay web app, which you can connect to using an Ethereum web interface – MetaMask is ideal for this purpose. This will connect your chosen Ethereum wallet to the 8Pay protocol, whereupon you can start using 8Pay.
8Pay provides all of the HTML code you require to integrate crypto payments into your checkout. The user will be directed to an 8Pay checkout page where they will be prompted to confirm their identity by signing a message using MetaMask. At this point, multiple checks are made to verify the transaction, to ensure the balance is sufficient and that the user has given 8Pay the permission to take tokens from their wallet. After that, the payment will be made, and the tokens sent to your wallet.
Configuring your merchant settings
8Pay allows for a range of payment types including subscriptions and on-demand. If you’re operating an e-commerce store, however, it’s likely that you’ll only require single payment functionality. As a merchant, you have several means of interacting with the 8Pay protocol. You can do so via the 8Pay web app or, should you require access to developer tools, you can do so via API or through the JavaScript library. The JavaScript library is used to interact with the smart contracts governing the protocol, while the API enables broader system access. For one-off payments, the 8Pay web app will likely be all you’ll require to get started.
After visiting the 8Pay web app, you’ll be presented with a range of options including the ability to:
  • Check the balance of all supported tokens stored in your wallet
  • Send and receive tokens
  • View transaction history
  • Create an off-chain payment request, such as a QR code or link to share
  • Create a custom payment button to be embedded on your website
  • Receive real-time notifications pertaining to payments
  • Access a detailed overview of your earnings
There is a range of crypto tokens you can accept with your online store using 8Pay. The 8Pay payment protocol is compatible with ETH, various ERC20 tokens, stablecoins, and the 8PAY token.
Adding an 8Pay button to your site
Generating a payment button is extremely simple using the GUI provided in the 8Pay web app. This is ideal for items that have a fixed price, as you can enter the price into the GUI and a payment button will be created for the corresponding amount. Decide which parameters you wish to include, such as a success and failure return URL. These can be assigned to control user flow and redirect customers to specific pages, depending on the payment process outcome. Additional parameters like tracking can be assigned as well if desired. Once you’re done, you’ll be provided with an HTML code that you can paste into your webpage.
8Pay’s documentation contains the HTML code to create and embed generic payment buttons, complete with instructions on how to set different amounts and parameters for each payment. Merchants aren’t limited to creating payment buttons for a fixed amount, either, it should be noted: you can create a button whose parameters will automatically adjust depending on the value of goods in the customer’s cart.
Here’s an example of how the payment process works when a customer elects to checkout with 8Pay:
Bob is shopping online at Cool Couture, an e-commerce store that specializes in jeans. After finding a pair he likes, he adds them to his cart and hits the checkout button. Here, he’s shown a variety of payment options, including the ability to pay with cryptocurrency. As a regular cryptocurrency user, Bob already has tokens loaded in his wallet including ETH. He clicks the “cryptocurrency” button and is taken to a dedicated page where the price is displayed in ethereum. After pressing the 8Pay payment button, a MetaMask pop-up prompts Bob to check the total and click to confirm. A few seconds later, the transaction will be marked as sent (though it will typically take a couple of minutes to confirm on the Ethereum network) and Bob is redirected to a “Success” page on the website, confirming that his payment has gone through.
And that’s it: the funds will show up in the merchant’s wallet straight away. As a fully decentralized and non-custodial solution, 8Pay never retains customer or vendor funds – they pass directly from buyer to seller.
The benefits of using 8Pay
8Pay allows you to start earning instantly, from the moment your online store goes live. It’s a payment solution that enables you to control your money, and which doesn’t restrict the nature of your business. With 8Pay, there’s no censorship, freezing of funds or account suspension. What’s more, 8Pay charges no fees for one-off payments, which means that all of the money you receive from the customer is yours to keep. There are no credit checks required – an ethereum wallet is all it takes to get started. If you’d like to start an e-commerce business without placing your fate and fortune in the hands of the payment giants, take a look at 8Pay.

Fun Ways to Use Your Cryptocurrencies

Fun Ways to Use Your Cryptocurrencies

https://preview.redd.it/q0ipu7zo3ql31.png?width=780&format=png&auto=webp&s=bfaf763304e4026398e041c64e98801aed0cc660
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have been around for quite a while now, but it was really in 2017 when it got the attention of many. It was in this year when the value of Bitcoin reached over 20,000 US dollars, and this is why many people and businesses started to use it.
Apart from Bitcoin, many cryptocurrencies soon became popular. Some of the popular cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin are Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), and Litecoin (LTC). However, it is Bitcoin (BTC) that is the most popular. It is even considered as the father of all cryptocurrencies.
Cryptocurrencies are digital funds that can be used for exchange or online trading. It is also used by many startups to get investors who could fund their businesses. Cryptos like BTC have great potential and people find them really convenient for use. Its owners or users can remain anonymous. No personal information is required to be shared to initiate payments using cryptocurrencies and this lessens the chances of fraudulent activities.
The transactions are also real-time. You no longer have to wait for your transactions to be processed by any third-party. You’ll just need the wallet address of the person you intend to transfer BTC to.
It’s also even easy to convert your money or cash into any of the cryptos, but you’ll most likely start with BTC. There are many online platforms which can assist you in getting BTCs.
BTC is not just used for trading; Bitcoin can also be used in many fun ways. Here are some interesting things you can do with your Bitcoin nowadays.

Buy Jewelry:

Buying jewelry is actually an interesting way for you to invest your money. This is something that a lot of people do as the value of jewelry can become quite expensive in the future. However, many people now see cryptocurrencies as something which is better than gold.
There’s truth in that because it’s more secure to own Bitcoins rather than pieces of jewelry that can be stolen. However, if you still want some pieces stashed somewhere, you can now purchase gold or jewelry with your Bitcoin.
You can get luxurious watches, rings, necklaces, and many more with crypto as many jewelry shops online now accept Bitcoin as a mode of payment. All you really have to do is add the pieces you want to your cart and check out with BTC. What an easy and interesting way to shop for jewelry!

Play online casino games:

Nowadays, Bitcoin gambling is also becoming popular. A lot of gamblers prefer using Bitcoin because of its convenience. They could also remain anonymous as they gamble and that’s something that a lot of them prefer.
What’s also good is that transactions made with online casinos worldwide are now made easier through the use of Bitcoin or other cryptos. Banks are usually strict when it comes to transactions that involve gambling, and so you no longer have to deal with that. Many online casinos now accept Bitcoin for you to make a deposit.
Just make sure that you still read guides for US Bitcoin gamblers or other guides that you can find regarding Bitcoin transactions in online casinos to keep yourself away from any impending problems.

Travel:

If you’ve always been dreaming of touring places all over the world, well you might as well do this with your Bitcoin. There are now travel agencies online that accept bookings and reservations paid through cryptos or Bitcoin.
You can also look for hotels or inns that accept Bitcoin too. It’s actually a good way for you to avoid lessening the value of what you have because of the exchange rates that fluctuate daily.
If you’re visiting a country or a place, you should also check out places that accept Bitcoin too like pubs or restaurants. Spending your Bitcoin for food and drinks is definitely something that you should try out.
These are just a few fun and interesting things that you can do with your Bitcoin. You can still expect that more and more companies and businesses will accept cryptos in the near future. Analysts still see that cryptos will be valued more than it already has, and so continue to be on the lookout.

Can Someone Help Address This Question From the r/Linktrader sub?

6 hours ago
Why can't the bank circumvent chainlink and offer their own direct-to-ethereum_blockchain api? Or Bloomberg/ThompsonReuters/etc.?
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 2moon401k4 points·5 hours ago
Because it wouldn't be decentralized, you would have to trust that bank/website API won't lie or be hacked to give false data. Centralized oracle data defeats the whole purpose of a smart contract
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 3shitcoinking1 point·5 hours ago
If i use decentralized chain link to look at a bank account (the example in the video), i would have to use the bank's api anyway.
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 4moon401k2 points·5 hours ago
Somebody would still have to create middleware to connect the API to the blockchain. Why would a bank waste their time and resources developing their own middleware when they can use a trust less system thats light-years ahead in development, and let's them open their API to ChainLink nodes and make money by doing so
Thanks kinda like asking why doesn't Walmart make their own shopping carts? Or why doesn't HP make their own CPUs? It's cheaper and easier to use a project that's already out and is proven to work
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 5shitcoinking2 points·5 hours ago
But banks and bloomberg/reuters do offer their own apis.
And adding chainlink to pull from the bank server doesn't make the request decentralized since the source info is centralized.
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 6moon401k1 point·3 hours ago
APIs are different than the actual oracles that connect the APIs to the blockchain. Yes banks and their APIs are centralized but if you want to do any kind of fiat transaction payment it's always going to be like that. That's why cypto is used before being converted at the last step.
What ChainLink does is allows you to trust the oracle service that will connect that bank's API or any other API you need, to the blockchain of your choice. The nice thing about ChainLink is that it is a one-stop-shop for any APIs you want to connect to a smart contract.
The reason why so many people talk about banking and ChainLink is the fact that they are the only oracle partnered with Swift using their ISO 20022 standard. Swift will allow ChainLink to connect directly to any bank account to freeze, transfer, etc funds.
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 7shitcoinking2 points·2 hours ago
What ChainLink does is allows you to trust the oracle service that will connect that bank's API or any other API you need, to the blockchain of your choice.
Why do I need chainlink to trust the bank API? The info is centralized. You have no choice but to trust the bank info if you want to use it. Coming from the financial sector, I suspect the actors involved will build their own oracles to the ETH standard.
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 8theKtrain2 points·1 hour ago
Bonds, interest rate derivatives, insurance settlements, etc.
Will a centralized oracle function for a lot of these use-cases? Sure. But when you have a smart contract with hundreds of millions of dollars on the line there is no room for error, and having a single point of failure makes you vulnerable
Even if 99.999% of the time the data is totally fine, there just isn’t any room for that .0001% of error with some of the institutions who are considering adoption.
Imagine having an API just have a hiccup and it disperses 100mm.
ReplyShareSaveEditlevel 9shitcoinking1 point·1 hour ago
So I'll use a mix of bloomberg, TR, and other resolution sources. Where else can i get trade data from? Why would i go to a linkie running aws?
level 2theKtrain1 point·1 hour ago·edited 48 minutes ago
You would use the APIs from each of those sources, and if they found consensus about whatever data you specify, then the smart contract would execute.
Furthermore each contract will essentially be secured by link, where if a node provides false data, the link is taken.
The project wasn’t marketed to us ‘Linkies’ really. 30mm of the 32mm crowd sake was pre-sold to institutional investors/clients who will be running the bulk of the serious nodes. You get to choose which nodes run your contracts.
ReplyShareSaveEditlevel 3shitcoinking1 point·39 minutes ago
No I'd use the source's eth oracle and my own custom contract to determine accuracy of the data according to my needs and weights, with failovers. There's really no reason to put another institution between an end user and the source.
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 4theKtrain1 point·35 minutes ago·edited 16 minutes ago
How would your contract determine the accuracy of the data with needs, weights and fail overs?
For example, if I need to know the 10 year US Treasury yield for my smart contract , and Bloomberg glitches or is hacked and falsely tells me the 10yrT yield is at 5.00% instead of 2.95% as it is today, how would your contract know that to be false?
I don’t think you can program accuracy parameters in all use cases.
ReplyShareSaveEditlevel 5shitcoinking1 point·25 minutes ago
In 99.99% of cases the data from the sources' oracles are consistent and no further action is required. In the handful of cases where the data is inconsistent, the failover data is incorporated according my own tolerances and standards. if the data is still not adequate, i halt execution and pull all the info to a human. How would a smart contract know which data source is inaccurate vs untruthful?
ReplyShareReportSaveGive goldlevel 6theKtrain1 point·8 minutes ago
Full disclosure, I’m not a programmer so I may be getting to the limit of my technical abilities here. I’ll post this to the subreddit to see if I can get someone more knowledgeable to provide some answers for you.

The KABN Network

hello friends I'll tell you little about KABN project, but first I want to tell you about the security of crypto money

The purpose of creating crypto money is to provide digital information exchange with a process that is made possible by certain cryptography principles. The purpose of cryptography is to secure money transactions and control the creation of new funds. The first Crypto Para is Bitcoin in 2009. Today, hundreds of different crypto currencies are used and they are often called “alternative crypto money Günümüzde. In other words, crypto is like an electric current that is converted into code by lines with a monetary value. Even simpler, crypto money is a digital currency. Unlike central banks, where governments have determined the value of their currency, no government has control over crypto money. Because there is no center to control this money.
Many crypto coins (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.) are designed to be produced less in time, thus creating a market value. This is different from the currencies used by states. Because the government can print more money at any time on favorable terms and thus increase the inflation. For example, in the Bitcoin market, there will be no more than 21 million units of units. Although there are hundreds of crypto currencies, most of them have emerged using one of two protocols; POW or PoS. All Crypto Coins are kept by crypto-money miners who have prepared their computers or ASIC machines to ensure the verification and processing of money transactions.

KABN Ecosystem

The KABN Ecosystem offers customers the ability to prove their identity without providing sensitive documentation to 3rd parties and to harness the power of digital currencies and to convert and spend them like traditional currencies, or Fiat, anywhere that Visa is taken while engaging in robust engagement and loyalty programs that provide continuous value.
The KABN Network is an integrated suite of financial services that includes the Pegasus Flyte Visa Card, an approved crypto-linked prepaid Visa card and mobile integrated multi-currency banking wallet; KABN KASH, a robust loyalty and engagement program and the network anchor, KABN ID, a patent pending, Always On, GDPR complaint, blockchain and biometrically based, identity verification and validation platform.
KABN’s mission is to create a world-class suite of products and services that support the decentralized market economy, globally enabling consumers to take control of their digital identity and personal data, connecting them with Cryptocurrency-linked financial services and loyalty platforms.

THE PROBLEM KABN SOLVES
As cryptocurrencies and other digital currencies grow globally, there is an ever-increasing need to convert them into traditional currencies (i.e. USD and Euros) for use in traditional spending.
KABN’s integrated suite of products, which has received approval by Visa, solves this major challenge by empowering digital currency holders to spend in-store and online, as well as, access ATMs globally wherever Visa is accepted.

\Pre-production cart art subject to network approval*
KABN Card
KABN has been approved to issue a reloadable prepaid Visa card starting in Europe in Q1-Q2 2019 and intends to expand to other jurisdictions. Each consumer customer who is screened and passes the KYC/AML on the KABN platform is eligible to receive a KABN-issued Visa card and corresponding banking wallet.
The KABN Card program aims to allow spending crypto in the real world. Presently, it is difficult to convert cryptocurrency into local currency. Exchanges increasingly offer trading pairs with stable coins instead of actual local currency. In many cases, withdrawals take weeks via international wire transfers. There are certainly exchanges that allow same-day withdrawals but these, management has found, are rare and in the minority. In certain cases, transfer fees are only viable for large deposits and withdrawals. With the KABN Card Consumers can immediately convert their crypto currency into fiat.
KABN’s technology has been built, their partners are in place, they have been approved by Visa and they are ready to go for their European launch in the 2nd quarter with an expected expansion to North America later this year.

Finding a Evaluation of IOTA and Crypto in General

Good Afternoon Gentlemen and Ladies,
I've had a lot of conversations lately, mostly with individuals who have minimal exposure to blockchain and cryptocurrencies in general. I think I've found some interesting information that may allow us to apply an educated valuation to the IOTA network as a whole. I would love to hear what you have to say, good or bad. Afterall, I am always interested in learning something new.
In order to find a valuation for IOTA, we really need to break down the past of the cryptocurrency ecosystem and see where we've ended up now.
Ancestor Cryptocurrencies:
There were a few digital currencies at the beginning, that pioneered the use of cryptography. DigiCash and PGP for example is the one that mainly comes to mind:
DigiCash was a form of early electronic payment which required user software in order to withdraw notes from a bank and designate specific encrypted keys before it can be sent to a recipient. This advancement of public and private key cryptography allows electronic payments to become untraceable by the issuing bank, the government, or a third party. This system of Blind Signatures through DigiCash software improved security for its users through the issuance of secured keys which prevented third parties from accessing personal information through online transactions. The Mark Twain Bank, later acquired by Mercantile bank, located in Missouri was the only U.S. bank supported DigiCash systems. Deutsche Bank, based in Germany, was the second backing bank of DigiCash systems.
First Generation BlockChain: Bitcoin
Bitcoin learned from DigiCoin's fatal flaw... having an owner. Bitcoin was designed with a revolutionary data structure, the blockchain which decentralized the data storage and operations of a database engine while also providing redundant backups and secure cryptographic access.
Bitcoin today remains a huge store of value, which is often the first point of contention that many cryptography newbians posit.
Bitcoin's valuation in a worst case scenario represents the value of remittance and financial transaction businesses. I've seen valuation comparisons of this nature producing figures near $6billion/year. At a 4-5 year valuation that puts the value somewhere between $24-30Billion dollars total.
Obviously, the current market cap tends to disagree with such a valuation (currently $78,132,505,529). So what gives?
The difference in valuation in my opinion, is made up for by two facts:
  1. Decentralized and secure nature of the network (confidence)
  2. Scarcity, such as gold and silver.
Where bitcoin will end up, is really still up in the air but I think $6Billion/year is a very conservative estimate. The top value really depends on how "shiny" bitcoin gets in relation to #2.
Gold's supposed market cap is $7Trillion in cirulation.
Best Case Valuation: $7-8Trillion dollars ($333,000.00/coin) Worst Case Valuation: $30Billion (and we all go home crying)
Luckily, the next generation of blockchain technologies is a bit easier to find a touchstone.
Second Generation BlockChain: Ethereum
Ethereum among other things, is noted for implementing Distributed Autonomous Networks (DAO henceforth). These are the "smart contracts" that everyone talks about, and allow for endpoints on the blockchain to receive requests and post responses to the blockchain.
Think of these as "software defined organizations", meaning instead of bylaws you now have source code. Beyond this, the decentralization of the network is still very much in play.
Software companies spend millions of dollars per year hosting their own expensive hardware. Entire industries have been developed already to support the expensive operation of maintaining hardware (depreciation), electricity, redundant backups, and employees.
This has already led to the explosion of the SaaS and Cloud ecosystems, where hosting and maintenance costs have become the "fat to cut". IT budgets around the industry have seen decreases while productivity has increased.
I believe that Ethereum represents an alternative to the centralized clouds that are already available (Amazon EC2, Azure, etc...).
I also believe that Ethereum represents an alternative software platform for many SaaS type services that already exist like any web service in existence.
In order to put a valuation on Ethereum, I would begin by realizing that Ethereum cannot really be compared against any individual company. Ethereum is a software platform that offers a paradigm shift in how companies can expend their financial resources in return for technology services.
In a best case scenario, Ethereum completely replaces cloud technologies and becomes the platform of choice for anybody who wants to:
  1. Write an application
  2. Publish it and not have to worry about hosting costs and maintenance
In a worst case scenario, Ethereum supplants technologies such as Azure which currently have a revenue of $23.6B in revenue.
Best Case Valuation: $1 Trillion Dollars (~$12,000/coin) Worst Case Valuation: $100Billion Dollars (~$1000/coin)
Third Generation "Blockchain": IOTA
Finally, the part that this particular sub has been waiting for.
IOTA represents multiple improvements over both previous generations. The ones that have been very apparent to me have been:
  1. Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) Data Structure
  2. Transaction Fee "Pay it forward" Algorithm.
The combination of both of these technological advancements significantly improve IOTA from what I think is a completely objective point of view.
(Software Engineering Mumbo Jumbo in the next paragraph) I understand the complexity required in CRU operations of a blockchain. The DAG represents a shift in the data structure architecture into only storing adjacency information. This improves the complexity speedup of operations upon the tangle. Similar to how an adjacency list has a quicker computational complexity then an adjacency matrix.
This computational speedup results in less CPU cycles being executed, which ultimately results in smaller electricity charges for devices optimized for the IOTA network. A similar device running blockchain would undoubtedly use more resources and thus electricity.
Secondly, the transaction algorithm has been called "infinitely scalable" however that is theoretical (damn you speed of light!).
It works by what I like to call the "Pay it forward" algorithm, which says that you need to "service" 2 previous transactions on the network prior to your transaction being accepted in the queue.
No money required to sent a transaction *Got electricity? Got a CPU? You've also got a reliable transaction medium for *Data** and $$$"
That last distinction "Data" is extremely important. For machine-2-machine communication to occur between billions of machines we cannot be charging them money to simply communicate. However, we cannot rely on charity to make it happen either.
The "Pay it forward" algorithm allows for, and actually encourages the use of the network by not charging traditional fees. All you do is spend some CPU cycles in return.
It is a huge innovation. The network will scale very well, and will actually get faster up until the physical laws of the universe are starting to be impeded upon (bandwidth/speed of light).
Now for the valuation of IOTA, which is tricky because we have not fully realized the machine-2-machine economy. This valuation will look a lot different if someday we wake up to an army of self-driving cars running on the IOTA framework. That is not the reality today, so the valuation will not include any related catalysts that might cause exponential explosion.
Just as Ethereum threatens to replace not only traditional hosting practices (such as corporate data centers), it also threatens the recent innovation of Cloud and SaaS technologies.
IOTA however reaches into uncharted territories where it doesn't just allow for the automation of "Software as a Service" but as "EaaS" which I like to call "Everything As A Service".
With EaaS the following become possible:
  1. Your home furnace, if IOTA equiped will be able to purchase and schedule delivery of OIL to your house.
  2. Your car automatically pays for itself at the gas station
  3. Your cart is automatically checked out as your cellphone leaves the grocery store
With IOTA, I think a best case scenario is best reached by again stepping back and looking at what type of market(s) are threatened by the existence of IOTA.
Internet of things revenues could exceed $400B/year according to this dude online. This allows us to construct 3 different scenarios for IOTA
  1. Best Case Scenario: $3Trillion ($1000/MIOTA) This valuation is supported by the projected $2Trillion from IOT revenues as an emerging technology, as well as the killing blow to Ethereum taking it's $1Trillion in market share.
  2. Medium Case Scenario: $1-2$Trillion ($300-$600/IOTA) IOTA specializes in IOT and Ethereum retains it's grip on SaaS and Cloud type services.
  3. Worst Case Scenario: $30Billion ($11/IOTA) IOTA struggles in a world that is not ready for the "Internet of Things"
  4. Apocalyptic Scenario: Crypto fails, or a bug is found in IOTA causing it to completely crash. $0 market cap.
Let me know what you think! I would love to have an informed discussion so that we can all become more educated investors.
Bonus WildCard Everyone talks about Tesla, and self driving cars. That would be huge, but what about FAA regulations of drones for household delivery? With Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, they now have a brick and mortar presence within 50 miles of 90% of the US population.

Important Questions for the Developers (long)

Hello, I have been reading and continuing digest the whitepaper, FAQ, and other outlets of information, and I have been brainstorming potential challenges, solutions, and scenarios facing the Oyster project. I am not a computer scientist (yet) so there are concepts that you as Developers understand much better than I do. I have tried to limit the amount of questions I’m asking at this time until I have a better grasp of the technical details in the whitepaper. That said, I would love to hear your responses to the questions provided below. Thank you u/oysterbruno, u/Bfpixels, u/tfrenchoyster, u/Halunen, and anyone else!
  1. Scalability. I understand that there are still “in-development” solutions for increasing the amount of storage space provided per pearl / fraction of pearl. Additionally, I understand the reason for permanently increasing the amount of storage for data as the value of pearl goes up, the alternative would result in corruption of files. However, I am curious how the oyster protocol can reach out across the network and update the allocated storage size for all previously existing files; is there a simple way to implement the changes without congesting the network and at what pearl value interval do you intend to send out updates? A solution that I considered, or perhaps more accurately inferred from the FAQ, is that as pearl goes up in value (Y-value), a predetermined X-value of data space is provided per pearl; the issue I could see is network congestion caused by making the Y-value too low resulting in network spam as it continually broadcasts new storage amounts across the whole network. Now, how the Tangle and Ethereum systems would handle this potential issue is beyond my level of understanding at this time; that said I was wondering if any new insights could be provided regarding this?
  2. Can you add new information to already deployed oyster storage files and would it be easy to do so? In a traditional cloud network a user can continue to access and add/remove data without issue, the allocated space will continue to remain NGB regardless of how much of it is used. Would Oyster allow the same ease of use and intractability; i.e. can a user easily continue to interact with their files after they are already deployed on the network?
  3. The economics of utilizing Oyster. I was having a conversation with my friend and he brought up an interesting and exciting point. Depending on the solution eventually reached for determining and re-distributing the space allocation per pearl in the network. It seems like, since the GB space provided can only go up, as people continue to adopt the system the amount of space provided can only increase. For instance, someone who purchases 1GB of space for 1 whole pearl now at a value of (currently) $3.50, would therefore be automatically permanently given 10GB for free in the event that Pearl $35.50. This provides a few potentially exciting possibilities and a few questions. If the user who originally bought the 1GB space for 1 pearl, really only ever needed say, at most 3GB, but they are now holding 10GB; could they sell the additional 7GB back to the system for a profit? On the other side of the coin, if a user needs additional space and they already paid for and deployed a storage unit, can they attach the new purchased space to an already existing contract/storage unit despite the changes in pearl-to-GB allocation since the original contract was created, or do they need to now create a new ID and store whatever files they want in a completely isolated unit? Provided I’m on the right track here, there are pros and cons towards creating a new standalone storage unit. On one hand, having completely isolated groups of data inherently increases their collective (isolated) security. However, from an ease-of-use standpoint, a user may now have to carry the burden of holding multiple keys to access multiple different locks to multiple different vaults.
  4. Long term Reliability. Perhaps this is a scenario where I am putting the cart before the horse; however, with any project it is important to stay aware of potential global changes to the space. As the crypto space continues to develop and mature, new systems may become more popular and old ones may wane and eventually fall out of use. Ethereum is currently the go-to for creating smart-contracts. Now, I’m aware of your flexibility regarding Tangle, how flexible would the system be regarding changes to the Ethereum side of the network. Ethereum is already experiencing scalability issues, similar to BTC, I am aware Buterin and company are working to resolve these scalability challenges, but if they fail and another project like Cardano, EOS, or other, become the new normal, how adaptable would Oyster be to the change and what solutions would you have in place to honor / modify already-completed contracts?
  5. True security. Currently, as I understand it, when Amazon or another provider stores information on a cloud, the data is still easily retrievable (because it is centralized). In the scenario of a government issuing a warrant, the data on the Amazon cloud, or even in one of those “super-secure” underground bunkers, is still accessible to the inquiring body with the warrant. Unless Amazon tries to delay the distribution of data through legal means, or one of those data-storage bunkers decides to go to war with the US government (or any government,) sooner or later the data may be compromised. What I have determined from your FAQ and whitepaper, and what honestly excites the hell out of me if true, is that once the data is distributed across the network, it is virtually impossible to provide any body, warrant or not, the data they seek. Since you as providers of the service obviously aren’t holding the data, the keys, or any personal information, you (oyster) are subsequently completely unable to provide any support to the inquiring body (even if you provide full-compliance) simply due to the nature of information being distributed and encrypted anonymously across an already heavily encrypted network. This is huge, I hope I am understanding the true potential here correctly.
  6. Ease-of-purchase. User ease-of-use with a product is paramount in creating the foundation of mass adoption. If the system is too complex, users will either give-up or adopt a competitor’s solution. A concern I had regarding this project (and all other projects in the space), is the difficulty for Average-Joe to purchase and use the product. At this time, If Joe has to create a Coinbase account, begin to understand how wallets work, then transfer funds (waiting to a week in some cases if he is a first time user doing a bank transfer), then send the coins to an exchange, to then trade them for pearl, to then withdraw them from the exchange into his own private wallet, before he can begin using the service, than his product (and many others) are dead. That is way too many steps. Currently, everyone in this space is considered an early-adopter, and early-adopters are willing to put up with the hassle, going forward this will not work. Potentially short-term solutions are to mirror MEW’s system of being able to purchase Ethereum (through Coinbase), directly into your wallet. Obviously, another step may need to be added. I have two current solutions: Exchanging the purchased Ethereum into pearl before the user interacts with it, or the user has the illusion of thinking they already have pearl when in reality it is still held as Ethereum until the transaction is calculated and submitted, and subsequently the Ethereum is then converted to a appropriate amount of pearl tokens to be used in the network; obvious pros and cons to each solution.
Anyway, Thanks for reading!

The owners of the CCX token will be able to trade the CCX in pairs with all other currencies in our market.

Fully compatible with the API, including what happens in WordPress, almost every web site will change the possibility of making a payment in the crypto currency. Our development plan includes plug-ins for the most popular and most common merchant systems, such as WOOCOMMERCE, PRESTASHOP, SHOOPY, or OpenCart, as well as our own payment gateway.

Acceptable markers. The platform enables and supports reliable ICO execution. We help companies who want to bring the coins to the world in sales. CoinCasso guarantees the company's ICO control, receives tokens, and reviews smart contracts to meet ICO requirements. After a successful campaign, tokens exchange bids.

All new money lists, except the ones in charge, require additional evaluation. CCX owners will have the right to vote and decide which tokens they want. Currency of a completely new project or CCX pairs in lesser known global markets are added On Demand first. If you are based on your project or if you have a coin or coin and have trouble putting it on the market, this is another reason to buy a CCX.
CCX Coins work similar to coins in other stock markets, but have an additional value for stock market users. The owners of the indicators have the ability to participate in the company, reduce transaction fees and give the holders of the indicators the right to receive a portion of the profit earned by the company.

CCX tokens are implemented based on the most popular and most advanced ERC20 protocol. The base for the markers is the Ethereum block chain, which is relatively fast compared to the alternatives. Thanks to this technology, we can apply the tokens in all payment processes and in all sites. The main purpose of the symbol is to allow you to freely exchange and exchange coins between users, services and transfers between merchants and other means.

CCX token holders will be able to change the payment option for CCX to a fractional fraction of the tokens (~<$0.5) and for reliable trading commissions. Moreover, our platform members will have the right to instantly, unlimited and free transfer. As long as all services are performed within our internal infrastructure, free transfers between CoinCasso Exchange, CoinCasso wallets and all token holders (members) will be provided between ATM network.
