Hoo.com Founder Ruixi Wang: Dive into Blockchain with Great Ambition

We are counting down for Bitcoin halving 2020.
But this time, the halving seems much more special compared to the previous two with the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermaths. Bitcoin is facing its first real challenge as well as opportunity.
“The confidence the halving brings is more important than its actual market performance. The COVID-19 pandemic might accelerate the downmarket, but it will also cause a quick reverse of the economy. From that perspective, the halving together with the pandemic will possibly have a positive influence on the crypto space. My prediction is that Bitcoin price will skyrocket to $100,000 by 2021.”
That’s how Ruixi Wang views the Bitcoin halving under the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. What insights and cognition the 30-year-old entrepreneur has on the crypto and blockchain sphere? Why did he predict boldly that the Bitcoin price would reach up to $100,000?
Blocklike had a conversation with Ruixi Wang, founder of Hoo.com, who shared his opinion on the blockchain industry and the “evolution history” of Hoo.com.
The 30-Year-Old “Veteran”
“Not being content with the status quo and always staying curious with new things were the two incentives that got me involved in blockchain. I have a technical background, so I’ve always been keen on technology and its progress, trends and development. I got to know cryptocurrency by chance years ago, and I was deeply attracted by its novel concept right away. But I was in the wave of big data start-ups at the same time. I was a big fan of that too. So I got myself into a dilemma — which one should I pick? But after a few strugglings, I turned to crypto in the end,” Ruixi Wang recalled how he ended up in crypto.
Although he stepped into the space in its infancy, Wang’s blockchain career was not always smooth.
Starting his blockchain trip by building a Bitcoin information navigator, Wang then worked for the mining team of a young talent Kaomao. He took over his mining machines and built his own company when Kaomao suddenly vanished. He also bought out PoW8.com, a cloud computing platform, and established an ICO investment platform before founding Hoo.com. The rapid changes forced Wang to challenge and to break himself. Now Wang has become a true “veteran”with his 8 years experience in the industry .
Looking back on the past, he summed up his experience with “diving into blockchain with great ambition”. He said that his inherent curiosity drove himself forward, during which he had to face more challenges but also gained more opportunities than his fellow peers. At the same time, it is precisely because of his persistence and full confidence in the future of crypto that enabled him to adjust his positioning and quickly adapt to a firm foothold in the rapid change of the industry.
Talking about his feelings about his 8 years in the sphere, Wang said: “What impressed me most was the volatile ups and downs of this industry. I withdrew from a stable job and quickly plunged into a new space. I’ve seen so many new faces pouring into the industry while so many old players leaving at the same time. Only those who are in my shoes would comprehend.”
The “get rich quick” myth is fading away, which leaves a bunch of outstanding companies and talents in the blockchain space. For that, Wang believes that perseverance and confidence are vital. “For the better development of the industry, we need companies and people who are confident in themselves but are always willing to correct themselves at the same time.”
“And it turns out true. Huobi, OKex and Binance merged immediately after BTCC, the first Chinese Bitcoin exchange, fell down. These top exchanges made the industry bigger and better. On the other hand, crypto wallets like Bitpie, have also made great contributions to the safe and sound development of the industry. I believe these people are persistent and confident in what they are doing and I also believe that they will have a bright long future,” explained Wang.
The Road to Hoo.com
When it comes to his latest start-up Hoo.com, Wang feels lucky that he seized the opportunity to do the right thing.
In 2017, Wang ran into the ICO heat when he was seeking for a transformation from the mining industry. With a technical background, he chased the wave and invested in quite many projects and tasted blood until ICOs were completely banned on September 4.
He had to seek another way out. Wang found that there were still gaps to be bridged in the asset management and financial system. He believed “asset management” will be a long-term inflexible demand in the industry. Therefore, Hoo Wallet was born. And that’s the mission of Hoo — to solve the safety issue of asset management as a basic service.
Focusing on the mission, Hoo Wallet launched a Co-management feature, Hoo Custody, Deposits and Lending services, etc. In June 2019, Hoo.com was officially launched as a crypto exchange along with two acquisitions. It aims to be a one-stop blockchain asset service platform covering trading, savings, lending, asset custody and DEX, etc.
There are much more competitors in the exchange field than wallets. How will Hoo stand out given the fact that Huobi, OKEx and Binance have shared almost all of the market? Wang explained that even though Hoo seemed to be a new player as an exchange, they have explored for two years in the savings and lending business as well as the node service for over 20 blockchains.
“The threshold for building an exchange is relatively low. There are too many propogandas and speculations. In fact, exchanges depend heavily on technology and marketing. It is hard to “graduate” in the end. As for Hoo.com, we are well-equipped on the technical side. Apart from that, Hoo.com had a good starting line when we spent $10 million on the acquisition of Chaince and OAX and migrated their users directly,” added Wang.
Besides, Wang is of the opinion that the top exchanges are greatly affected by the pandemic and the March 12 Black Swan event. All the exchanges are back to the starting point to some degree. What they will compete for next would be “service”. It is true that the top players have taken up the market, but from the perspective of the whole crypto financial market, there is still much space to explore. Which means that there’s still a lot to grow for top exchanges and there are huge opportunities for tier 2 and tier 3 exchanges.
The Ambitious Hoo.com
In Wang’s opinion, there are often times when those who speak louder or make more noise seem to be more impressive. As a matter of fact, a start-up cannot live without good products and services.
Calling himself an entrepreneur, Wang now has something to await for the business he built. From savings, lending to spot trading and perpetual contracts, the ambitious Hoo never stopped being just a wallet.
He pointed out: “So far, users seem to be satisfied with our savings, lending and derivatives products. But we still have a long way to go. We are aware of our problems. Anyway, facing up to your shortcomings is the first step to move forward.”
What Hoo.com wants to build as a platform, and what kind of products and services will it provide?
Wang reveals to Blocklike that Hoo.com has two different goals in the medium and long term:
In the medium term, Hoo.com will focus on derivatives including futures, contracts and options. It will not be limited to the crypto space. They will build partnerships with well-known traditional financial organizations.
In the long term, the plan is to build a clearing system, which refers to the clearing between fiat and cryptocurrency. Hoo aims to be a bridge that gaps between the traditional market and the crypto market.
The reason why Wang wants to build this clearing system is also based on his positive expectation on the blockchain industry.
He told Blocklike: “There is a lot of favorable news lately. The central bank accelerated its pace in DCEP adoption. BSN, the state level blockchain service network, is about to be commercialized. Ant Financial open chain was officially launched… Compared to the development of the Internet, blockchain technology will welcome a more competitive state involving companies, countries and even the whole world in the next period and it will prosper like the Internet.”

The Case for XRP in 2018

Cryptocurrencies have grown exponentially not only in price this past year but also in public awareness and popular attention. The novel feeling to an emerging financial and technological market is reminiscent of the rise of the Internet with its innovative potential. In turn, a heightened collective societal awareness of this new innovative potential has led to a change in the nature of the market dynamics of cryptocurrencies. As Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle posits, “The observation of a phenomenon changes the phenomena itself.” The observation of thousands of young millennials, and now middle-aged investors, will only accelerate the rise of cryptocurrencies as times goes on.
Today, we are seeing the real-world effects of a newfound intrigue into cryptocurrencies. This new interest is causing a narrowing of the divergence between truth and fiction over accurate knowledge about cryptocurrencies. The force drawing this gap narrower each day is an increased dissemination of truthful information that has generated legions of individual investors into new cryptocurrency markets; in particular, Ripple’s XRP.
As the public expands its understanding of Ripple’s XRP, the capital inflow from both individual and institutional investors combined will likely grow to levels that will exponentially grow the liquidity of XRP and, as a byproduct, its price.
Here, in this report, I will provide an overview and analysis of Ripple’s XRP and the implications Q4 2017 and the year 2018 and beyond hold for the future of XRP and its price.
THE CONCEPT: WHAT IS XRP?
XRP is the digital asset used by Ripple to offer financial institutions an option for liquidity to conduct cross-border payments. It is predominantly used for Ripple’s solution for the minimization of liquidity costs. In contrast to most other cryptocurrencies, XRP’s application here features a real-world applicability that extends to real-world transactions. It is used for the xRapid solution provided by Ripple, and is the only one of the three solutions Ripple offers (The others are xCurrent and xVia) that employs the use of XRP.
THE RATIONALE: WHY XRP?
There is a myriad of factors that distinguish XRP from other cryptocurrencies and establish it as a forerunner to what may become the dominant cryptocurrencies in the years that lie ahead.
Cost: Comparatively, XRP has the lowest cost per transaction at $0.0004. In contrast, BCH is $0.26, LTC is $0.37, DASH is $0.64, ETH is $0.96, and BTC is $28.23.
Scalability: XRP can handle over 1,500 transactions per second whereas BCH can handle 24 per second, LTC can handle 56 per second, DASH can handle 10 per second, ETH can handle 16 per second, and BTC can handle 24 per second.
Speed: XRP can conduct transactions at a rate of 3 seconds per transaction, BCH at a rate of 58 minutes per transaction, LTC at 17 minutes per transaction, DASH at 15 minutes per transaction, ETH at 2 minutes per transaction, and BTC 1 hour and 6 minutes per transaction.
XRP’s availability is ever-expanding. It is currently available on over 50 exchanges including Bitstamp, Bithumb, Bittrex, Binance, Bitfinex, Kraken, and Poloniex. The volume of XRP availability is, in addition, in an expansionary phase. The primary location of exchange volume is concentrated in Asia; in particular, South Korea. However, as mainstream media attention increases, so will American interest as well. There already have been tell-tale signs indicative in news outlets that have covered Ripple recently in the wake of XRP’s rise in CNBC, Bloomberg, Forbes, Investopedia, and Yahoo Finance.
Simply consider the mania generated by the media attention to Bitcoin. Repetitive news stories featured on CNBC, Bloomberg, CNN, CBS, and other mainstream media news outlets. Countless articles disparaging it as a bubble and hailing it as a force that could deconstruct the financial apparatus governed by the Federal Reserve and other central banks. Now, consider the results of media attention directed towards the substantive information behind XRP. Once news segments and articles are shown and written that illustrate the comparative superiority of XRP to other cryptocurrencies, then the viewers and readers will likely flock to XRP in pursuit of acquiring a tried, tested, and proven cryptocurrency with real-world usage.
In turn, a virtuous circle intensifying capital inflow to XRP is predictable and probably to occur. We can expect FOMO to rise and a number of oscillations up and down for the price to unfold. Nevertheless, the price of XRP is bound to not only remain but rather accelerate its demonstrated upwards price trajectory pushing us to new heights.
Additionally, if the collective fear among cryptocurrency investors materializes, that is, if new regulations are imposed on our activities, then Ripple is stand to likely gain. Dr. Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a scholar and risk analyst writes about a concept called “Antifragility.” Antifragility is a term used to describe things that gain from disorder. Considering Ripple’s ties to financial institutions and regulators, it wouldn’t be too far-off to speculate that XRP is positioned to gain if such a black swan event were to occur.
FURTHER REASONS TO ADVANCE THE CASE FOR XRP:
Financial institutions, renown investors, and accomplished financiers have already taken notice of XRP. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has advocated on Ripple’s behalf. Zoe Cruz, former president for institutional securities and wealth management at Morgan Stanley and former global head of fixed income, commodities, and foreign exchange has joined Ripple’s Board of Directors. She has been named to Forbes list of Most Powerful Women for three years straight.
Perhaps most notably, a consortium of 61 banks – organized by SBI Ripple Asia – will be adopting Ripple’s technology to settle transactions between its members with the eventual goal of applying XRP to usage. Mr. Yoshitaka Kitao, the CEO, Executive Chairman, and President has publicly stated, “Forget about bitcoin, we’re all in on XRP!” In fact, SBI has already confirmed that XRP will be put in usage in Spring 2018. If successful, expect the price to reflect it.
Moreover, TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington has, as of November 2017, announced a $100 million XRP hedge fund. His efforts have already raised $50 million which will engender a ripple effect of new large net-worth individual and institutional investors. The entity will be called Arrington XRP Capital and new information about its activities are set to be released in the months that lie ahead.
Also, David Schwartz, Ripple’s Chief Cryptographer, has said that there are two major “household” companies (Not financial institutions) that will be announced in Q4. This is likely to provide a substantial boon to XRP.
Finally, the Chief Technology Officer of Ripple, Stefan Thomas, has said that in 2018 there will be a “big push on XRP.” For years, Ripple has kept a relative silence in expressing the superiority of XRP. 2018 will be different. 2018 is bound to be Ripple’s year. I expect the price to rise as high as $10 and as low as $4.
At any rate, this report only scratches the surface of Ripple and XRP’s potential. For far more nuanced and in-depth analysis and information, I suggest reading from Ripple firsthand at www.ripple.com and perusing the best blog on XRP itself at https://xrphodor.wordpress.com/
To the moon, we go.

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

On May 8th, according to the official announcement of Binance, the Binance exchange discovered a large-scale security vulnerability, and the hacker was able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and other possible information to steal the token assets. At 17:15:24 on May 7, the hacker stole 7,000 bitcoins from the coin-hot payment system at block height 575012.

https://preview.redd.it/6nuzch81lst31.png?width=692&format=png&auto=webp&s=0e5fbdc437e21a56e0c6ad14179263493ff44c46
After the theft of the coin, BNB fell 5% in half an hour and quickly fell below $20. Then Binance announced that, due to security vulnerabilities, Binance will take about one week to conduct a thorough security check, during which time the recharge and withdrawal will be suspended to ensure that the trading market is not affected.
Although Binance announced that the "SAFU Fund" will be used to fully bear the full loss of this attack, no user has any losses, but the impact of user panic caused by the coin theft incident cannot be eliminated in a short period of time.
Faced with the frequent occurrence of coin theft in trading platforms, people can't help but ask why Alipay will not be hacked by hackers.
According to relevant statistics, more than 400 million users use Alipay in China, and the total amount of user assets is immeasurable. This number should be more attractive for hackers, but why is Alipay not hacked?
According to the reason spread on the Internet, the reason why we can use Alipay with peace of mind is because Alipay has a department like Agents of SHIELD. In other words, it is not that hackers do not want to attack Alipay, but they do not have the ability to attack. It is said that the "Agents of SHIELD" will recruit hackers who attack Alibaba. If the hacker can break through the firewall, they will ask the hacker to work in Ali, offering a very generous salary. In addition, even if the last line of defense of the Alipay system was also broken, it was proposed that the transfer network was strictly regulated by the legal currency, which could not be taken away, and could be traced and lead to jail.
For hackers, attacking Alipay is a very unwise choice, not to mention the high level of difficulty, but also to bear the high risk. Compared with the attack Alipay, hacking the token trading platform in the black blockchain field is much easier. As long as there is a loophole in the token trading platform, it gives the hacker a chance. Due to the anonymity of the blockchain transaction, the assets of the trading platform can hardly be recovered after it is lost.
So for hackers, some trading platforms are comparable to "ATMs."
Nowadays, the popular exchanges are still in the development stage of centralization, and the incident of coin theft is almost inevitable. In addition to being attacked by hackers, the situation of inside job of the trading platform has also occurred from time to time. Then, how should the asset security of the token holders be maintained?
The emergence of the new digital payment system TarK payment system provides a new idea for solving the problem. The TarK payment system is a decentralized payment system developed and based on the fourth generation of blockchain technology. In addition to storing the token assets, it also supports payments of all token assets and cross-chain transactions. Tark combines two major features of anonymity and security, as well as six advantages of multi-currency, second-speed, multi-account system, offline signature, multiple verification, and open third-party ecosystem.
Today we are going to emphasize the security protection advantages of the TarK payment system. Tark payment system is the world's first dual-form cold payment system security protection model. It introduces the top technology innovation and multi-person collaborative management function of Silicon Valley in the United States, which greatly reduces the safety factor of users’token asset and can escort the user's token assets!
In addition, Tark payment system will automatically open the never networking mode during idle use, build transactions and signatures at cold end, conect the network and broadcast transactions at hot end, to create a solid protection shield for the token assets, completely eradicate network hacking and resist asset risk caused by various reasons.
TarK payment system provides you with stronger security protection than “Ali’s Agents of SHIELD”, so you can stay away from the coin theft of centralized trading platform!

I wrote a 30,000 ft. "executive summary" intro document for cryptos. Not for you, for your non-technical parents or friends.

This document was originally written for my dad, an intelligent guy who was utterly baffled about the cryptocurrency world. The aim was to be extremely concise, giving a broad overview of the industry and some popular coins while staying non-technical. For many of you there will be nothing new here, but recognize that you are in the 0.001% of the population heavily into crypto technology.
I've reproduced it for Reddit below, or you can find the original post here on my website. Download the PDF there or hit the direct link: .PDF version.
Donations happily accepted:

Background

This document is purely informational. At the time of writing there are over 1000 cryptocurrencies (“cryptos”) in a highly volatile, high risk market. Many of the smaller “altcoins” require significant technical knowledge to store and transact safely. I advise you to carefully scrutinize each crypto’s flavor of blockchain, potential utility, team of developers, and guiding philosophy, before making any investment [1] decisions. With that out of the way, what follows are brief, extremely high-level summaries of some cryptos which have my interest, listed in current market cap order. But first, some info:
Each crypto is a different implementation of a blockchain network. Originally developed as decentralized digital cash, these technologies have evolved into much broader platforms, powering the future of decentralized applications across every industry in the global economy. Without getting into the weeds, [2] most cryptos work on similar principles:
Distributed Ledgers Each node on a blockchain network has a copy of every transaction, which enables a network of trust that eliminates fraud. [3]
Decentralized “Miners” comprise the infrastructure of a blockchain network. [4] They are monetarily incentivized to add computing power to the network, simultaneously securing and processing each transaction. [5]
Peer-to-peer Cryptos act like digital cash-- they require no third party to transact and are relatively untraceable. Unlike cash, you can back them up.
Global Transactions are processed cheaply and instantly, anywhere on Earth. Using cryptos, an African peasant and a San Francisco engineer have the same access to capital, markets, and network services.
Secure Blockchains are predicated on the same cryptographic technology that secures your sensitive data and government secrets. They have passed seven years of real-world penetration testing with no failures. [6]

Bitcoin (BTC)

The first cryptocurrency. As with first movers in any technology, there are associated pros and cons. Bitcoin has by far the strongest brand recognition and deepest market penetration, and it is the only crypto which can be used directly as a currency at over 100,000 physical and web stores around the world. In Venezuela and Zimbabwe, where geopolitical events have created hyperinflation in the centralized fiat currency, citizens have moved to Bitcoin as a de facto transaction standard. [7]
However, Bitcoin unveiled a number of issues that have been solved by subsequent cryptos. It is experiencing significant scaling issues, resulting in high fees and long confirmation times. The argument over potential solutions created a rift in the Bitcoin developer community, who “forked” the network into two separate blockchains amidst drama and politicking in October 2017. Potential solutions to these issues abound, with some already in place, and others nearing deployment.
Bitcoin currently has the highest market cap, and since it is easy to buy with fiat currency, the price of many smaller cryptos (“altcoins”) are loosely pegged to its price. This will change in the coming year(s).

Ethereum (ETH)

Where Bitcoin is a currency, Ethereum is a platform, designed as a foundational protocol on which to develop decentralized applications (“Dapps”). Anyone can write code and deploy their program on the global network for extremely low fees. Just like Twitter wouldn’t exist without the open platform of the internet, the next world-changing Dapp can’t exist without Ethereum.
Current Dapps include a global market for idle computing power and storage, peer-to-peer real estate transactions (no trusted third party for escrow), identity networks for governments and corporations (think digital Social Security card), and monetization strategies for the internet which replace advertising. Think back 10 years to the advent of smartphones, and then to our culture today-- Ethereum could have a similar network effect on humanity.
Ethereum is currently the #2 market cap crypto below Bitcoin, and many believe it will surpass it in 2018. It has a large, active group of developers working to solve scaling issues, [8] maintain security, and create entirely new programming conventions. If successful, platforms like Ethereum may well be the foundation of the decentralized internet of the future.

Ripple (XRP)

Ripple is significantly more centralized than most crypto networks, designed as a backbone for the global banking and financial technology (“fintech”) industries. It is a network for exchanging between fiat currencies and other asset classes instantly and cheaply, especially when transacting cross-border and between separate institutions. It uses large banks and remittance companies as “anchors” to allow trading between any asset on the network, and big names like Bank of America, American Express, RBC, and UBS are partners. The utility of this network is global and massive in scale.
It is extremely important to note that not all cryptos have the same number of tokens. Ripple has 100 Billion tokens compared to Bitcoin’s 21 Million. Do not directly compare price between cryptos. XRP will likely never reach $1k, [9] but the price will rise commensurate with its utility as a financial tool.
In some sense, Ripple is anathema to the original philosophical vision of this technology space. And while I agree with the cyberpunk notion of decentralized currencies, separation of money and state, this is the natural progression of the crypto world. The internet was an incredible decentralized wild west of Usenet groups and listservs before Eternal September and the dot-com boom, but its maturation affected every part of global society.

Cardano (ADA)

Cardano’s main claim to fame: it is the only crypto developed using academic methodologies by a global collective of engineers and researchers, built on a foundation of industry-leading, peer-reviewed cryptographic research. The network was designed from first-principles to allow scalability, system upgrades, and to balance the privacy of its users with the security needs of regulators.
One part of this ecosystem is the Cardano Foundation, a Swiss non-profit founded to work proactively with governments and regulatory bodies to institute legal frameworks around the crypto industry. Detractors of Cardano claim that it doesn’t do anything innovative, but supporters see the academic backing and focus on regulation development as uniquely valuable.

Stellar Lumens (XLM)

Stellar Lumens and Ripple were founded by the same person. They initially shared the same code, but today the two are distinct in their technical back-end as well as their guiding philosophy and development goals. Ripple is closed-source, for-profit, deflationary, and intended for use by large financial institutions. Stellar is open-source, non-profit, inflationary, and intended to promote international wealth distribution. As such, they are not direct competitors.
IBM is a major partner to Stellar. Their network is already processing live transactions in 12 currency corridors across the South Pacific, with plans to process 60% of all cross-border payments in the South Pacific’s retail foreign exchange corridor by Q2 2018.
Beyond its utility as a financial tool, the Stellar network may become a competitor to Ethereum as a platform for application development and Initial Coin Offerings (“ICOs”). The theoretical maximum throughput for the network is higher, and it takes less computational power to run. The Stellar development team is highly active, has written extensive documentation for third-party developers, and has an impressive list of advisors, including Patrick Collison (Stripe), Sam Altman (Y Combinator), and other giants in the software development community.

Iota (IOT)

Iota was developed as the infrastructure backbone for the Internet of Things (IoT), sometimes called the machine economy. As the world of inanimate objects is networked together, their need to communicate grows exponentially. Fridges, thermostats, self-driving cars, printers, planes, and industrial sensors all need a secure protocol with which to transact information.
Iota uses a “Tangle” instead of a traditional blockchain, and this is the main innovation driving the crypto’s value. Each device that sends a transaction confirms two other transactions in the Tanlge. This removes the need for miners, and enables unique features like zero fees and infinite scalability. The supply of tokens is fixed forever at 2.8*1015, a staggeringly large number (almost three thousand trillion), and the price you see reported is technically “MIOT”, or the price for a million tokens.

Monero (XMR)

The most successful privacy-focused cryptocurrency. In Bitcoin and most other cryptos, anyone can examine the public ledger and trace specific coins through the network. If your identity can be attached to a public address on that network, an accurate picture of your transaction history can be built-- who, what, and when. Monero builds anonymity into the system using strong cryptographic principles, which makes it functionally impossible to trace coins, [10] attach names to wallets, or extract metadata from transactions. The development team actively publishes in the cryptography research community.
Anonymous transactions are not new-- we call it cash. Only in the past two decades has anonymity grown scarce in the first-world with the rise of credit cards and ubiquitous digital records. Personal data is becoming the most valuable resource on Earth, and there are many legitimate reasons for law-abiding citizens to want digital privacy, but it is true that with anonymity comes bad actors-- Monero is the currency of choice for the majority of black market (“darknet”) transactions. Similarly, US Dollars are the main vehicle for the $320B annual drug trade. An investment here should be based on the underlying cryptographic research and technology behind this coin, as well as competitors like Zcash. [11]

RaiBlocks (XRB)

Zero fees and instantaneous transfer make RaiBlocks extremely attractive for exchange of value, in many senses outperforming Bitcoin at its original intended purpose. This crypto has seen an explosion in price and exposure over the past month, and it may become the network of choice for transferring value within and between crypto exchanges.
Just in the first week of 2018: the CEO of Ledger (makers of the most popular hardware wallet on the market) waived the $50k code review fee to get RaiBlocks on his product, and XRB got listed on Binance and Kucoin, two of the largest altcoin exchanges globally. This is one to watch for 2018. [12]

VeChain (VEN)

Developed as a single answer to the problem of supply-chain logistics, VeChain is knocking on the door of a fast-growing $8 trillion industry. Every shipping container and packaged product in the world requires constant tracking and verification. A smart economy for logistics built on the blockchain promises greater efficiency and lower cost through the entire process flow.
Don’t take my word for it-- VeChain has investment from PwC (5th largest US corporation), Groupe Renault, Kuehne & Nagel (world’s largest freight company), and DIG (China’s largest wine importer). The Chinese government has mandated VeChain to serve as blockchain technology partner to the city of Gui’an, a special economic zone and testbed for China’s smart city of the future. This crypto has some of the strongest commercial partnerships in the industry, and a large active development team.
  1. “Investment” is a misnomer. Cryptos are traded like securities, but grant you no equity (like trading currency).
  2. The weeds for Bitcoin: basic intro (1:36), non-technical explanation (5:24), Bitcoin 101 – Andreas Antonopoulos (23:51).
  3. It is impossible to double-spend or create a fake transaction, as each ledger is confirmed against every other ledger.
  4. Some utility token blockchains use DAG networks or similar non-linear networks which don’t require mining.
  5. In practice, these are giant warehouses full of specialized computers constantly processing transactions. Miners locate to the cheapest electricity source, and the bulk of mining currently occurs in China.
  6. Centralized second-layer exchange websites have been hacked, but the core technology is untouched.
  7. This effect has been termed "bitcoinization".
  8. The Ethereum roadmap shows moving from a Proof of Work (PoW) to Proof of Stake (PoS) consensus model.
  9. At $2.62 per XRP token, Ripple already commands a $100B market cap.
  10. After a January 2017 update.
  11. Monero uses ring signatures while Zcash uses ZK-SNARKs to create anonymity. Both have pros and cons.
  12. Note: all signs point to this crypto being renamed “Nano” in the coming weeks: nano.co.

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

On May 8th, according to the official announcement of Binance, the Binance exchange discovered a large-scale security vulnerability, and the hacker was able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and other possible information to steal the token assets. At 17:15:24 on May 7, the hacker stole 7,000 bitcoins from the coin-hot payment system at block height 575012.

https://preview.redd.it/ygd0hknb39n31.png?width=692&format=png&auto=webp&s=f40bb67e2c08f6b58877af3b80daae6b992f94c5
After the theft of the coin, BNB fell 5% in half an hour and quickly fell below $20. Then Binance announced that, due to security vulnerabilities, Binance will take about one week to conduct a thorough security check, during which time the recharge and withdrawal will be suspended to ensure that the trading market is not affected.
Although Binance announced that the "SAFU Fund" will be used to fully bear the full loss of this attack, no user has any losses, but the impact of user panic caused by the coin theft incident cannot be eliminated in a short period of time.
Faced with the frequent occurrence of coin theft in trading platforms, people can't help but ask why Alipay will not be hacked by hackers.
According to relevant statistics, more than 400 million users use Alipay in China, and the total amount of user assets is immeasurable. This number should be more attractive for hackers, but why is Alipay not hacked?
According to the reason spread on the Internet, the reason why we can use Alipay with peace of mind is because Alipay has a department like Agents of SHIELD. In other words, it is not that hackers do not want to attack Alipay, but they do not have the ability to attack. It is said that the "Agents of SHIELD" will recruit hackers who attack Alibaba. If the hacker can break through the firewall, they will ask the hacker to work in Ali, offering a very generous salary. In addition, even if the last line of defense of the Alipay system was also broken, it was proposed that the transfer network was strictly regulated by the legal currency, which could not be taken away, and could be traced and lead to jail.
For hackers, attacking Alipay is a very unwise choice, not to mention the high level of difficulty, but also to bear the high risk. Compared with the attack Alipay, hacking the token trading platform in the black blockchain field is much easier. As long as there is a loophole in the token trading platform, it gives the hacker a chance. Due to the anonymity of the blockchain transaction, the assets of the trading platform can hardly be recovered after it is lost.
So for hackers, some trading platforms are comparable to "ATMs."
Nowadays, the popular exchanges are still in the development stage of centralization, and the incident of coin theft is almost inevitable. In addition to being attacked by hackers, the situation of inside job of the trading platform has also occurred from time to time. Then, how should the asset security of the token holders be maintained?
The emergence of the new digital payment system TarK payment system provides a new idea for solving the problem. The TarK payment system is a decentralized payment system developed and based on the fourth generation of blockchain technology. In addition to storing the token assets, it also supports payments of all token assets and cross-chain transactions. Tark combines two major features of anonymity and security, as well as six advantages of multi-currency, second-speed, multi-account system, offline signature, multiple verification, and open third-party ecosystem.
Today we are going to emphasize the security protection advantages of the TarK payment system. Tark payment system is the world's first dual-form cold payment system security protection model. It introduces the top technology innovation and multi-person collaborative management function of Silicon Valley in the United States, which greatly reduces the safety factor of users’token asset and can escort the user's token assets!
In addition, Tark payment system will automatically open the never networking mode during idle use, build transactions and signatures at cold end, conect the network and broadcast transactions at hot end, to create a solid protection shield for the token assets, completely eradicate network hacking and resist asset risk caused by various reasons.
TarK payment system provides you with stronger security protection than “Ali’s Agents of SHIELD”, so you can stay away from the coin theft of centralized trading platform!

FCoin Sharing Session Q&A — 07/23/2018

FCoin Founder Mr. Zhang Jian Addressed the Most Controversial Questions about FCoin since its Launch.
(July 23, 2018) FCoin held an online media Q&A session on Monday with its founder, Mr. Zhang Jian replying the most controversial questions on FCoin, a digital asset trading platform that was launched barely two months ago but has already become the most talked about phenomenon in the industry.
These controversial topics include FCoin’s efforts in token-reforming, the general concept of token economy, the fluctuation of FCoin price and response to the recent negative comments and accusations made by Binance on FCoin. A complete Q&A could be found as below:
Q1: We have seen many new announcements issued by FCoin with lots of new concepts. Could you first elaborate on FCandy? Why do you start to return in FCandy instead of FT, what’s the strategy behind it? What do you think is the true value of FCandy and what is your expected price for it?
Answer1: Regarding FCandy, we mentioned before in our announcement that it is an assert pool in which all kinds of assets could be placed in. We actually have placed lots of FTs during the first round. What do we mean by “placing”, basically it’s equivalent to donation and what is its true value? I think it could benefit our entire community through our donation. It is clearly stated in our announcement that any digital assets could be placed in FCandy and FCandy will be issued according to a certain proportion, but to guarantee the real asset value of FCandy. However, the assets placed in FCandy pool no longer belong to those who place the assets but to the entire community which makes FCandy vitally different from the other asset pools or various products. We designed a lot of ways to give out FCandy to our community members. It doesn’t mean that we no longer return in FT, 100% transaction fee is still returned in FT, this is our set rule which will never be changed. Which are some of the situations where we will not return in FT? Anything but “Trans-fee mining” mechanism. Because all the other mechanism is simply activities. Like our referral programs, incentive programs and etc. These are community activities with the aim to motivate the communities and bring more benefits, so these are the responsibility that FCandy should assume. I do not need to elaborate on the value of FCandy. I encourage everyone to see the front page of FCandy in which the amount of assets are clearly indicated. In the future, a large number of project participators will place their assets into this pool. We will also initiate voting system and community members could vote on whether we should sell part of the assets and these sold asserts will belong to FCandy holders, similar to the concept as dividends. But this will be a plan in the far future, not to be realized recently. Regarding the price of FCandy, I cannot comment on this. Based on the asset pool, everyone can gauge its reasonable price range.
Q2: What’s the latest listing rules? Is the new FOne trading zone transferring the token-listing right to the certified organizations? What’s the FCoin’s standard in selecting a certified organization? What’s the difference in the responsibilities and rights of these certified organizations compared to the ones in the Stock market?
Answer 2: Some adjustments were made on the listing rules with the launch of FOne. What made us launch FOne? Actually, we have encountered some problems when doing GPM, i.e there is a long list of projects waiting to be listed which is far beyond the capacity of the platform itself. Most importantly, we encounter the problems of verifying its authenticity. Hence, in order to make the entire mechanism work better, the essence of FOne is to let FCoin certified organizations to screen quality projects. Every certified organization has its own zone that has the right to list tokens and set its own listing rules. We provide service and technical support to various certified organizations. This relationship will guarantee a healthy growth of FOne. As for the rights and responsibilities, these are vitally important as well. Since these trading zones are opened by certified organizations, they have the responsibility to guarantee the quality of its listing projects. FCoin retains the rights to review and verify the performance of these certified organizations and details will be released soon. We really hope that good projects could stand out from this innovative mechanism and this will help motivate the entire industry. Regarding the selection standards for the certified organizations, these are mainly the mainstream token fund in the industry. Easy to get in but difficult to get out. First of all, these organizations need to have certain reputation in the industry. We welcome them to join us as our certified organizations in the beginning but more strict standards will be launched later. In addition, we will also have control over the organization list and eliminate those who are not up to our standards. We will soon announce the list of our second batch of certified organizations. The entire crypto industry is not yet mature and it’s currently a mix of everything. We are trying to introduce step by step some mature models to break through the mess. We are on our way to a revolutionary future
Q3: Is FOne the trial zone of token-reforming for FCoin? What is the difference about listing rules and circulation mechanism between Main Board A & B? As a mature product or company, what are the necessary steps for token-reforming and what are the biggest difficulties and challenges during the process? Are there any successful cases on token-reforming before? To a mature community, the compliance and legitimacy of listing can be a sensitive topic, is this going to be a key obstacle for the improvement of token-reforming trial zone? How will you solve this problem? In your opinion, which industries will make progress first during Coin-reforming trial zone?
Answer 3: The answer to the first question is NO. It has clearly been stated in the announcement that token-reforming is not made by FOne. Token-reforming is in main Board C, right now we have main Board A & B; the mature blockchain projects are in main board A, and emerging projects in board B, while the token-reforming projects are in board C. FOne is the successor of the previous Innovation Zone on GPM with the aim to support startup projects. After the upgrading of the overall positioning, GPM will focus on supporting the long-term projects while the startup projects will move to FOne. FOne will transfer the listing power to certified organizations in order to attract more quality projects to get in in the early stage. As a matter of fact, token-reforming is not all that easy. We have just released an announcement on which a new project was applying to get listed on our main board C, of course there are many other projects doing so as well. We have to consider the project in a comprehensive manner, from the preparation, the qualification of the projects to the business model or the maturity of the business Situations(applications). There might be two ways for reforming, such as QOS, the one project that we have been observing and providing the technical support. It has applied to get listed on our main board C. QOS is a typical blockchain project with mature business applications and massive users, along with a solid preparation process. This kind of project is well prepared, that’s why it can enter the final verification and listing schedule stage very soon; as for some other projects, although they come from a mature company, they do not really understand the token economy, the listing process might take longer. In my opinion, we have to go through an important process to acknowledge the token economy, token and coin; Second, about how reforming can make a great influence, and connect its previous- designed products with business module, aligned them well and solve its previous conflicts of interest. That’s why reforming is quite difficult and challenging. To sum up I think there are two biggest difficulties for reform. First is the whole design of token economy model — it means completely different for different products or companies, even with different approaches , thus, quite challenging. Second is the overall interest arrangement. A mature product must face mature interest arrangement, including shareholder structure, existing resources and how to solve these problems. It requires of massive communication as well as knowledge and determinations to get all these problems solved. These two are the most difficulties we currently face. For the sensitive question about compliance, I think all innovations will face a certain kind of risk, the more subversive the innovation, the higher risk it may face, especially like token economy, as its target and core is to change the market relationships. It’s quite subversive and will meet lots of challenges never that have never been met before. Why people like to talk about the first person who eat the crab? If there is no challenges, people would just repeat doing things they have done like a hundred times before, but it’s not the case here. If you are willing to seize the opportunity of the new economy, you need to take risks and accept the challenges. I think it’s a trend for the future and it’s unstoppable. In addition, I don’t think it’s a key obstacle for a product or a company that are determined to explore in this direction. What I mentioned before are quite essential, firstly it has to be in the internet industry and financial industry, or the combination of these two, such as the finance technology. There are lots of opportunities within, so are in some other industries.
Q4: There are several institutions dabbling in Blockchain+Insurance model, however, this model has still not been widely applied. Therefore, will this new Insurance community FInsur just a publicity stunt? Is “Insurance is mining “ just some benefits to attract users, or is it a mutual insurance based on blockchain technology? How does this model work?
Answer 4: FInsur for sure is not publicity stunt. A lot of people doubted about FCoin when it first came out, is FCoin a publicity stunt? With the concept of “Trans-fee mining” being widely spread and recently became a trend, it is obvious that we are not a publicity stunt, otherwise it won’t show such a strong vitality. Therefore, the concept of “insurance is mining “is quite simple. I would like to repeat it again, it’s similar to FCoin essentially. What is the concept of “Trans-fee mining”? Clients and users of an exchange are the traders. As the core concept of token economy, I think the main targets of business service, is like the relationship between an exchange and its users, which is in opposite relationship. We hope that after the reforms by token economy, it can be an untied relationship, even for the sake of common interest. So let the traders be the shareholders of FCoin, that is the essence of “Trans-fee mining”. Likewise, let the insurance applicant become the shareholder of an insurance company, or at least make their interest consistent rather than conflicting (money-making vs money-losing), which is a long-term target for us, and also my initial intention. It’s hard to image vehicles on road without insurances. That’s why there is compulsory insurance like Compulsory Traffic Insurance and commercial insurance that we must pay. It also applies to ourown digital currencies & assets. Therefore, I don’t think FInsur is a publicity stunt, but will be a benchmark for innovation in this industry and bring in massive benefits.
Q5: How about the operation of stabilization funds launched by FCoin? Is this stabilization funds really effective on regulating the dramatic market fluctuation and keeping the price of FT stable?
Answer 5: We have just wrapped up a one-month life cycle of the Stabilization fund Phase I and it is already in the process of balancing, not running any more. I am not the one who has proposed the concept of stabilization fund. I have repeatedly said that for an emerging trading product or an emerging market, especially when it has great innovations, nobody knows how to price it correctly in the early stage. It will also suffer from all kinds of malicious attacks and various rumors under such a complicated market situation. Hence, the market fluctuations will be very dramatic in the short term. The stabilization fund was launched in this context. Can this fund really keep the market volatility stable? This mainly depends on the factors of market volatility and various other situations. The stabilization fund will certainly ease the dramatic fluctuations of the market. But will the price stop to fluctuate with the funds? Or will the price not rise and fall sharply? This is uncertain. Since the market price, especially short-term market behavior, is very complicated and thus very difficult to predict. So the fund can only ease the dramatic fluctuations. As some unstable factors are gradually eliminated, or as the platform matures, these unstable factors will be disappearing slowly. Say, there are huge trust issues in the earlier stages, however, as the platform continues to grow, these problems will be reduced accordingly. Now everyone feels that FCoin is a very reliable platform which has been working so hard to make the platform, the community and the whole ecosystem bigger. In this case, those difficulties that we encounter before won’t exist anymore. Our risk control in the early stage might not be that sharp, leading to the existence of some malicious short-selling and other hostile situations. With the gradual improvement and maturity of our backend monitoring system, I believe there will be less risks in this aspect. Therefore, the whole market will gradually become more healthy in the long run.
Q6: You mentioned that the explosive effect of FCoin is a victory for the “tokenomics.” Can you share with us your understanding of the “tokenomics”? What is its strong driving force? What distinguishes it from the traditional business model and incentive mechanism?
Answer 6: It is very hard for me to talk about my understanding of the tokenomics, since this topic is too big. But I can talk about some key points, such as what I just mentioned, “What is the strong driving force?” I just mentioned that the distinguished difference between the structure of the tokenomics design and the traditional business model and incentive mechanism is the reversal of the production relationship. How to reverse? As mentioned earlier, producers and consumers are a pair of relationships. The common form of the Internet is the relationship between the platform and its user. In fact, they are all similar. That is, the relationship between a service provider and a client, or the relationship between a product provider and a consumer. Under the traditional business model, this group of relationships must be antagonistic at the level of interests. Because the mission of a commercial organization is to make money. They earn money from consumers or users. Under the traditional business model, you buy any goods, or you consume any service, the only relationship between you and the service provider and the producer of the goods is that you pay him. Let us think about the reason why this commercial system can exist. It is because these users are paying so that the commercial system can exist. In other words, these consumers and users are the basis for the existence of this commercial system. But if this commercial system develops bigger, then it has nothing to do with the users which are the basis and premise of the existence of this commercial system. I think this is the problem of the traditional business model, and it will definitely face a big upgrade in the future. The big upgrade has started slowly now, and I think its solution is tokenomics. FCoin is such a practice of tokenomics. We found that as FCoin grows and matures, traders gradually become shareholders of FCoin. The trader not only becomes a user of the platform, but also contributes fees and transactions. At the same time, he can also get 100% return of the exchange’s “shares” FT. The returned FT can enjoy FCoin’s income distribution forever, and it is 80% of the income distribution. This is unimaginable in the traditional capital market. Let me give you an example. In the traditional capital market, basically everyone does not pay attention to dividends because they are so little. There are too many companies that don’t pay dividends all along the year. Everyone can check the dividends of the traditional market which are so little and nobody concerns about the dividends. The timeliness of dividends distribution is also executed poorly. As the price of crypto currency fluctuates dramatically, users do not feel the power of our model in the early stages. With the maturity of FCoin, they feel that our model of income distribution is extremely revolutionary. Firstly, its proportion of dividends distribution is so large. How about the traditional listed companies? They distribute neither revenues nor profits. It is possible that the companies might need to keep enough cash for development, so they do not distribute dividends. FCoin directly distribute income to users, the vast majority 80% of our revenues on a daily basis. This is an absolutely revolutionary concept in the traditional capital market. Because the entire concept of the so-called financial system and finance of the crypto industry has not yet been established, and it is still relatively chaotic, the crypto industry is still at a very early stage for the pricing and cognitions. The creation and power of FCoin and FT takes time to show, as I always say “let the bullets fly for a while.” The same is true for FInsur. I hope that in the future, various new models based on the creation of the tokenomics or the transformation of the original model will have the power to make our customers consistent with our interests . I have to say one more thing. I think that this power is actually much underestimated. Because once the production relationship changes, once the service provider and the client are in the same interests, the whole decision-making process, the starting point and mentality of decision-making, all community-based architecture and all future mechanism design and gameplay will change. I am appreciating this in a more in-depth sense now. Therefore, the future of the tokenomics will definitely show great vitality. It will have a huge impact on the original business model, commercial design and corporate system. This is my judgment on the future.
Q7: Many exchanges are allegedly using bots wash trading and their users are mostly zombie users who have no practical effect. Could you please tell us about how would FCoin gradually increase the number of real users so as to make the platform grow in a more healthy manner?
Answer 7: Time will prove everything. We are constantly upgrading and innovating. Everything we do is to make our various mechanism work in a more robust way. The number of FCoin users and daily transactions continue to grow and FCoin is definitely on the right track. Many people are still accusing us of hiring bots to do wash trading. As our platform matures, there is more Quantitative transaction going on which provides real benefits for our community members. If you pay attention to our recent changes on the platform, you could definitely feel it.
Q8: What has FCoin revolutionized the industry in terms of the rules, both the unspoken rules and the apparent rules?
Answer 8: First, I will talk about the unspoken rules. The biggest difference between FCoin and all the other exchanges is that when you open our front page, you could clearly see that almost all our data are transparent and as we continue to develop our products and enhance users experiences, the level of our transparency will only be elevated accordingly. This is something you cannot imagine in traditional industries. No company, in our times, would announce its revenue because they do not need to distribute their profits to their users. But we are different, we cannot fake our data. If you are a black box i.e a company that does not need to disclose data to the public, you actually have the opportunity to fake data. I’ve said many time before that it was ridiculous to accuse FCoin of bots wash trading. We simply cannot fake any data as otherwise we will not have enough funds to be distributed to our users. All our data is real and transparent which brings the first revolutionary change of rules in the industry. About the apparent rules. Many users said that FCoin still made a lot of money after they saw the platform had used all kinds of algorithms. But what I want to point out is that why not take a look at other exchanges that make huge amount of money but still give back nothing to its users? On our side, FCoin distribute 80% of daily revenues to its users and for quite a long period of time, even 100%. After the launch of FCandy, we spend a majority of platform’s daily revenue to buy back FTs which later on are distributed to its community members. I hope you can look further with FCoin. FT certainly has its market cap, but so long as you hold FTs even for just a day, you will be able to get your daily dividend from that day. That’s just the beginning of how FCoin is going to revolutionize this industry. Stay tuned!
Q9: Mr Zhang, you always say that the market will eventually see the value of FT, but the price of FT has been dropping drastically non-stop. Why is there a vast difference between what you see in the value of FT and what the market see it?
Answer 9: FCoin has just been launched for less than 2 months. It’s way too early to talk about the value of a new born thing. For instance, a lot of people asked me about Bitcoin many years ago, at a time when the price of Bitcoin kept dropping from 8,000 RMB to 900RMB. I told them that the value of Bitcoin needed to be evaluated in a 4-year full circle, not just for a few months. If you use a 4-year full circle to draw the candlestick of Bitcoin, what will you see? The short-term price is unpredictable and is being influenced by many factors in the short term, like the market supply, all kinds of different judgments, disapprovals of new things in the early days and even rumors, but in the long run, the price is surely determined by its value. I have some data in FCoin’s front page, our dynamic P/E ratio is 0.56 as of today. You can go to any A-share market to check their P/E ratio, especially those innovative internet companies or high tech companies and judge by yourself. As I mentioned earlier, we have upgraded our Incentive programs, it is now returned with FCandy instead of FT. Because FCandy is highly linked with any activities that benefit the entire community members. This will be our future principles. In the meantime, transaction fee is still returned 100% as in FT and this is some ething, I have reinforced many times, that we won’t change. Why? Because this is our basic model, everything that FCoin is based on which is to make traders as the shareholders of FCoin.
Q10: Mr. Zhang, my questions might come across as a bit of sharp. Two days ago, FCoin announced on its website that the price of FT has been fluctuating drastically and later on, some media reported that the price was being manipulated by a professional team called “Ghost in the Dark” and implied that it had something to do with Binance. Miss He Yi from Binance accused FCoin of paying for media to write negative articles about Binance. Do you have any comments on this? In addition, Mr. Zhao Chang Peng (CZ) from Binance remarked during a media Q&A session in Seoul that “FCoin won’t last long as it is constantly selling new tokens but the price of them keep on dropping.” Do you have anything to say to his remarks?
Answer 10: Your so called sharp questions are actually not sharp at all. First of all, we announced officially on our website that the price of FT encountered abnormal fluctuations because we had found malicious attack from a team that was deliberately short-selling FT and we have proof of it. That’s why some immediate action has been taken to limit the sales order in 3 trading pairs which effectively destroy the botting programming designed by that professional team. As for the media report, I do not want to comment on it, but they did report the same to us through their investigations. About CZ’s comments? Actions speak louder than words. Why does he keep on talking about me if I am not threatening him? This is weird, let the fact speak for itself.
Q11: FCoin has been launched for only 2 months but developed really rapidly with trading volumes topping the chart while it took Binance 3 months to become №1 with real trading volumes. FCoin is very strong with ecosystem, but users’ experience is really bad. No trading depth and the webpage get stuck all the time. The launched app version (still in beta) is even worse than a third-party app while it takes forever to launch an official version. My question is, as a digital trading platform, shouldn’t Trading experiences be respected and focused?
Answer 11: Your question is quite sharp. Trading, in many industries are indeed not well respected, but for FCoin, we have been trying our best to perfect it. There is a process for everything to grow in maturity. If it is something great, it is bound to be less mature in the early stage. More patience please and we welcome everyone to supervise and support us.
[More to the question] — My question of trading not being respected has another sense to it in terms of users’ experience. This should always be put in the priority but with FCoin, it is not the case. It seems that there are always be put in the priority but with FCoin, it is not the case. It seems that there are always things far more important than users’ experience but shouldn’t it be the core for any exchanges?
Answer 11: Apologies for my misunderstanding of part of your question. As for the priority, if you have to choose between platform’s security/stability and users’ experience, which one would you choose? We are still in the initial stage and have been developing really fast. Therefore, we have to contribute tremendously to the security and stability of the platform. The core of a mature exchange is not only about users’ experience. As we all know, we cannot really see an exchange model with the traditional capital market. When you are trading in stock exchanges, it’s the brokers that you see, not the exchanges. That’s why I think currently for us the main focus is still to improve our core strength and in the meantime, to perfect the trading experiences along the way.

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here


On May 8th, according to the official announcement of Binance, the Binance exchange discovered a large-scale security vulnerability, and the hacker was able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and other possible information to steal the token assets. At 17:15:24 on May 7, the hacker stole 7,000 bitcoins from the coin-hot payment system at block height 575012.
After the theft of the coin, BNB fell 5% in half an hour and quickly fell below $20. Then Binance announced that, due to security vulnerabilities, Binance will take about one week to conduct a thorough security check, during which time the recharge and withdrawal will be suspended to ensure that the trading market is not affected.
Although Binance announced that the "SAFU Fund" will be used to fully bear the full loss of this attack, no user has any losses, but the impact of user panic caused by the coin theft incident cannot be eliminated in a short period of time.
Faced with the frequent occurrence of coin theft in trading platforms, people can't help but ask why Alipay will not be hacked by hackers.
According to relevant statistics, more than 400 million users use Alipay in China, and the total amount of user assets is immeasurable. This number should be more attractive for hackers, but why is Alipay not hacked?
According to the reason spread on the Internet, the reason why we can use Alipay with peace of mind is because Alipay has a department like Agents of SHIELD. In other words, it is not that hackers do not want to attack Alipay, but they do not have the ability to attack. It is said that the "Agents of SHIELD" will recruit hackers who attack Alibaba. If the hacker can break through the firewall, they will ask the hacker to work in Ali, offering a very generous salary. In addition, even if the last line of defense of the Alipay system was also broken, it was proposed that the transfer network was strictly regulated by the legal currency, which could not be taken away, and could be traced and lead to jail.
For hackers, attacking Alipay is a very unwise choice, not to mention the high level of difficulty, but also to bear the high risk. Compared with the attack Alipay, hacking the token trading platform in the black blockchain field is much easier. As long as there is a loophole in the token trading platform, it gives the hacker a chance. Due to the anonymity of the blockchain transaction, the assets of the trading platform can hardly be recovered after it is lost.
So for hackers, some trading platforms are comparable to "ATMs."
Nowadays, the popular exchanges are still in the development stage of centralization, and the incident of coin theft is almost inevitable. In addition to being attacked by hackers, the situation of inside job of the trading platform has also occurred from time to time. Then, how should the asset security of the token holders be maintained?
The emergence of the new digital payment system TarK payment system provides a new idea for solving the problem. The TarK payment system is a decentralized payment system developed and based on the fourth generation of blockchain technology. In addition to storing the token assets, it also supports payments of all token assets and cross-chain transactions. Tark combines two major features of anonymity and security, as well as six advantages of multi-currency, second-speed, multi-account system, offline signature, multiple verification, and open third-party ecosystem.
Today we are going to emphasize the security protection advantages of the TarK payment system. Tark payment system is the world's first dual-form cold payment system security protection model. It introduces the top technology innovation and multi-person collaborative management function of Silicon Valley in the United States, which greatly reduces the safety factor of users’token asset and can escort the user's token assets!
In addition, Tark payment system will automatically open the never networking mode during idle use, build transactions and signatures at cold end, conect the network and broadcast transactions at hot end, to create a solid protection shield for the token assets, completely eradicate network hacking and resist asset risk caused by various reasons.
TarK payment system provides you with stronger security protection than “Ali’s Agents of SHIELD”, so you can stay away from the coin theft of centralized trading platform!

Is The Writing on the Wall for BTC?

First things first.
Not trying to start a flame war here, or spread FUD at all. I'm just trying to summarize / make sure I am aware of the big going-ons in the crypto (specifically ETH / BTC sector.) world.
  1. We had Starbucks coming out saying that they were planning on choosing one or a couple of cryptocurrencies -- but specifically mentioned not supporting bitcoin.
  2. Despite fluxuations in the overall market cap of the crypto market, we have Ethereum weathering it incredibly well, and gradually climing percentage charts for the flippening. (61% as of the writing of this post.)
  3. We have Binance (I believe it was.) adding all their pairings with ETH / XXX, making a first attempt at decoupling BTC from their pairs.
  4. I just got a note from Jason Calacanis noting to his subscribers:
"3. Bitcoin itself could go to zero The Bitcoin HODL crowd (a play on words for “hold,” as in hold your coins, never sell them), think this is insane, but we’ve watched many times as the early projects in a promising vertical go to zero and the 10th goes to the moon.
Many of us used Ask Jeeves, Lycos, and LookSmart before seeing Google show up in 1998. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_web_search_engines
Many of us used SixDegrees, Friendster, LiveJournel, and MySpace before Facebook in 2004.
Bitcoin is facing massive challenges around speed of transactions, the size of the blockchain, transaction costs and governance.
Governance could be the thing that takes it down. If you want to jump down that rabbit hole, you can watch this video: https://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/blog/the-blockchain-paradox-why-distributed-ledger-technologies-may-do-little-to-transform-the-economy/
The majority case in my mind, is that Bitcoin will, as the first technology out of the gate, be supplanted by a much better technology. This could be a fork of Bitcoin or simply a new, much better product.
As time moves on, consumers get savvier, and that means they recognize a better product quicker and move to it faster and faster. We’ve seen this with people jumping from Hotmail to GMAIL, BlackBerries to iPhones, and dialup to broadband internet.
Consumers will not have the loyalty to Bitcoin that they have to their email account and BlackBerries, because they don’t actually use Bitcoin for anything other than speculation. The switching cost will be zero, as opposed to switching your phone, which requires backing up your data, moving your phone number, and setting up your new iPhone and selling your BlackBerry.
We could see a run on Bitcoin that happens in days or hours, not years like the decline of RIM (BlackBerry’s parent company) and AOL."
Note -- he doesn't mention Ethereum at all in his mega-critical article of the crypto sector in general. I don't know if this is bullish, but I know at the very least it isn't bearish.
Is it just me? Or has there been a steady drip of negative news for BTC? I've heard nothing but positive tests for Casper.
Thanks in advance for not flaming me.
Edit: a word. Binance added ethxxx pairs, they didn't replace anything.

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here


On May 8th, according to the official announcement of Binance, the Binance exchange discovered a large-scale security vulnerability, and the hacker was able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and other possible information to steal the token assets. At 17:15:24 on May 7, the hacker stole 7,000 bitcoins from the coin-hot payment system at block height 575012.
After the theft of the coin, BNB fell 5% in half an hour and quickly fell below $20. Then Binance announced that, due to security vulnerabilities, Binance will take about one week to conduct a thorough security check, during which time the recharge and withdrawal will be suspended to ensure that the trading market is not affected.

In addition to being attacked by hackers, the situation of inside job of the trading platform has also occurred from time to time. Then, how should the asset security of the token holders be maintained?
The emergence of the new digital wallet TarK wallet provides a new idea for solving the problem. The TarK wallet is a decentralized wallet developed and based on the fourth generation of blockchain technology. In addition to storing the token assets, it also supports payments of all token assets and cross-chain transactions. Tark combines two major features of anonymity and security, as well as six advantages of multi-currency, second-speed, multi-account system, offline signature, multiple verification, and open third-party ecosystem.
Today we are going to emphasize the security protection advantages of the TarK wallet. Tark wallet is the world's first dual-form cold wallet security protection model.

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

You think only Ali has Agents of SHIELD? A higher level of security is here

On May 8th, according to the official announcement of Binance, the Binance exchange discovered a large-scale security vulnerability, and the hacker was able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes and other possible information to steal the token assets. At 17:15:24 on May 7, the hacker stole 7,000 bitcoins from the coin-hot wallet at block height 575012.

After the theft of the coin, BNB fell 5% in half an hour and quickly fell below $20. Then Binance announced that, due to security vulnerabilities, Binance will take about one week to conduct a thorough security check, during which time the recharge and withdrawal will be suspended to ensure that the trading market is not affected.
Although Binance announced that the "SAFU Fund" will be used to fully bear the full loss of this attack, no user has any losses, but the impact of user panic caused by the coin theft incident cannot be eliminated in a short period of time.
Faced with the frequent occurrence of coin theft in trading platforms, people can't help but ask why Alipay will not be hacked by hackers.
According to relevant statistics, more than 400 million users use Alipay in China, and the total amount of user assets is immeasurable. This number should be more attractive for hackers, but why is Alipay not hacked?
According to the reason spread on the Internet, the reason why we can use Alipay with peace of mind is because Alipay has a department like Agents of SHIELD. In other words, it is not that hackers do not want to attack Alipay, but they do not have the ability to attack. It is said that the "Agents of SHIELD" will recruit hackers who attack Alibaba. If the hacker can break through the firewall, they will ask the hacker to work in Ali, offering a very generous salary. In addition, even if the last line of defense of the Alipay system was also broken, it was proposed that the transfer network was strictly regulated by the legal currency, which could not be taken away, and could be traced and lead to jail.

For hackers, attacking Alipay is a very unwise choice, not to mention the high level of difficulty, but also to bear the high risk. Compared with the attack Alipay, hacking the token trading platform in the black blockchain field is much easier. As long as there is a loophole in the token trading platform, it gives the hacker a chance. Due to the anonymity of the blockchain transaction, the assets of the trading platform can hardly be recovered after it is lost.

Stigma

Over the years of mostly lurking in this subreddit I've come to learn that a project I am active on and have been for the past 2.5 years has always had this stigma about it, no matter what gets shared. The comments often go from the range of "it's a ponzi", "shit content cause everyone only posts about Steem", "shit content cause people only post about what the influential users with a lot of stake want to see" to "it's ninjamined".

I don't want to talk about most of the other examples in this post, but according to my knowledge the company that started the currency mined it along with other people very early on. Yes there was a restart due to a bug, yes they did manage to mine a lot of stake at a time where people were splitting hashpower into a lot of currencies, but guess what else, they've used a majority of that stake developing the blockchain. So much so they have to lay off employees during a brutal bear market that has hit the majority of coins except xrp and btc just as hard. That they've sold stake in an automated way to help fund dapps instead of dumping at the top only and ruining everyone's ROI.

Then there is the crowd that screams DPOS is not a real blockchain cause it's not POW. This one never made much sense to me, not to mention how centralized mining pools are, how the world needs higher TPS, how so much effort has gone into the lightning network as a second layer solution, how Ethereum is moving into a proof of stake environment with proof of work miners still active. It kinda reminds me of Steem's early mining phase where you could mine it through hardware, being a witness, posting, curating and inflation. Oh, it had both of those plus 3 other methods and theoretically can handle 10k tx/s although its record is currently only at [2.5 million at ~0.21% capacity].

I know you might be thinking, "ugh it was another shill post" but I'm not here to just let you know about stats that are easy to find as investors & holders, I'm sure the majority of you know how to invest or at least have learned some harsh lessons along the way which most of us have and a subreddit like this one has been a great source of info, if not always i the posts then in the comment section. It has helped you along a few times probably, even though some major scandals or exit scams have come to light after it was already too late I'm sure there are a lot of you who are thankful to the thoughts, ideas, predictions, warnings and everything positive this platform has given you. That's why I use it and many of you probably too.

Just imagine for a second if you were someone with a lot of wealth and saw a possible competitor of you make a lot of waves over the internet, know how imbalanced the world currently is in how people evaluate their time. How hard and expensive do you think it is for a person to either a: create a reddit account or b: purchase one from black markets to a: post a lot of good posts about your project and b: constantly bring up flaws or conflicting material up about the other project. Now I'm not saying that Steem is the perfect version to this solution, there are bid bots and hell even bid bots for comments. What Steem does give you access to though, is a history of all actions of any account you want to look up on since everything is stored on the blockchain. There are a lot of [projects](https://steemprojects.com/) already on Steem that can help you out a long the way to find more info about the account, what kind of content it votes on, which authors it votes on the most, and a lot of other things. In the end though there can always be very good shills who are dedicated and may say anything about everything, the reputation system is pretty flawed as accounts can "promote" their posts by spending Steem/SBD to a bot that has delegated Steem Power which is only used to sell votes which in turn gives users a higher ROI as they are using 90% of their influence of the weekly reward pool just to give out sold votes. While at the same time you have a big community of users who just want to grow the place by curating content and authors wanting to see where this technology can take us if done part right and part being altruistic as curators only earn 25% of the reward pool thus benefiting the authors only voting on themselves or selling votes. This may all seem like a big flaw but to some users it just feels like something that will take more time to show its strength.

Much like delegating your stake to another account for a higher ROI, you could put your investment to work to just promote content you want to read more about. In a way, you can create your own community by incentivizing them with a token that has value and is being traded on most markets and has one of the best distributions than most coins. No matter how many promotions certain coins give you for signing up with a new service of theirs or how many airdrops alts of theirs do upon holders. This one is designed to be one of the best at distribution cause it is built into the core to reward you for curating. Curation may seem like a joke to many who have tried it on an account and not gotten much returns, but imagine services doing it, exchanges, businesses. You give your favorite restaurant a review and they return the favor with a vote that directly gives you and them a token reward. It is already built in, the things you can do with Steem are endless.

While the company is hard at work to further scale the blockchain, allow creation of tokens that can go with your votes that any company can create for almost no cost at their own and give value to their presence on the blockchain. It will only need one social media manager to learn how to use Steem which is simplified on purpose for beginners, but once you dig deeper into the tech and think that if selling votes as promotion to get on a trending page of thousands of readers is one of its early things, what else can there exist that could evolve the same way? Well, literally everything. You think of it, I could 2/3 tell you a good reason why it would be better over time on the Steem blockchain. I'm not even bluffing here, there are tons of devs and services not just migrating but being created daily throughout the year so they must be thinking the same thing, I can't be the only one with ideas and I'm probably not the best one at it either as I don't code.

There's dapps such as d.tube which gained a lot of traction when the first front-end Steemit made it past rank 1000 during the bitcoin ATH, although decentralization of video is not quite there yet through IPFS they try their best to give you a good experience if possible, not only that, they will reward you for using their service. Most dapps being created on Steem get funding through the users of the platform in forms of "delegation", some dapps have beat Smart Media Tokens to the punch and are already distributing tokens as ERC-20 to switch them up once the hardfork is live when you will be able to create your own tokens. Remember the ICO sell off that happened in 2018? Well here users can go a bit more wild at investing and diversifying without risking their own tokens, them just being loaned out to the dapp in exchange for their tokens. No wonder there are so many new dapps being created here where funding can be minimal, work on a as a pay for your contributions so far and can be distributed to many dapps around the site depending on your judgement in their odds of success. Don't let me even start talking about how an increase in price would affect the reward pool and the funding of said investments as most of you know how crypto works.

To cut this short(er), I just wanted to let you know about some stuff that is happening over there. The rewardpool has given out more than $50 mil to authors since it's existence with [hundreds of dapps](https://www.stateofthedapps.com/rankings/platform/steem) (recently got listed on stateofthedapps so all activity may not be reflecting the real numbers yet, I reckon it should be more [according to @penguinpablo's daily selected stats of the blockchain](https://steemit.com/steemit/@penguinpablo/weekly-steem-stats-report-monday-december-24-2018) ). In a market where most dapp activity has gone down, being able to create an account and interact with the blockchain is not easy, Steem has been doing a decent job at getting users introduced to blockchain and some of its main advantages to many existing apps they use daily. Although it's price fluctuations are as crazy as Bitcoins were at some point, it has a lot of potential and has already proven once how quick users could get accepted and how fast people with an account came back to use it, reminds me a lot of Bitcoins early hypes and die outs.

I'm just saying don't judge a book by it's cover. Like most projects, take a deeper look. Not all things need to be decentralized, you can have some actions happen on centralized servers and it won't necessarily affect users in a bad way if something happened with that. The important thing to know here is that everything on the bockchain is public, anyone can see if someone is selling, anyone can see that devs working on it are invested. What people say is not always the truth, if you ask a lot of Steem users today what they think about their currency they might be just as annoyed as the next guy cause they may be experiencing a market cycle at the wrong time or just expected their project to outperform everyone else. Make sure you diversify. The president of Coinbase recently said in an interview to CNBC that he is looking at 200 coins in the general market that "matter" and is interested in adding them.

Do the research, come to a conclusion but give the blockchain project a chance to show it's real potential to you, not what someone said or did about it, not how things may seem. Back in the day when I got in the majority was calling Bitcoin that and it was not pretty. Back when Ethereum had it's presale everyone and their grandmas were calling it a scam on Reddit. Same thing with EOS. There are a lot of people out there and the hivemind can change as often as underwear and some times not even by manipulation.

Sorry for the long read those that made it through, I don't post here often as I am quite busy reading but also because Steem exists so there's no real incentive for me to spend a lot of time here other than getting some news combined with some opinions cause even though Steem has those too, it's just too early for it to be of high-end quality, the same way Reddit was before the community started growing in subreddits.

While Coinbase is trying to outcompete binance in dominance, see if you can gain any short term profit from banks trying to pump ripple and more centralized entities that rely on adrevenue trying to create their own versions of blockchain without realizing an open internet is always better than a closed one, and let the institutional money start flowing in. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Not sure what to flair this post.

Substratum leads Round 2 of Monthly Community Voting Round - AMA Transcript Inside!

Hey guys, If you haven’t noticed on Binance’s monthly community voting round – it has been a tight battle but Substratum has been taking the lead.
I wanted to explain why Substratum has seemingly come out of no-where but has garnered some attention. Substratum is creating a solution to a very big obstacle in the world web. The below has been taken from Justin Tabb aka the Founder of Substratum and summarises what the purpose of the network is.
I hope you guys can support their vision by voting for Substratum (SUB) on the https://www.binance.com/vote.html.
The Substratum Network will bring the decentralized web worldwide without the need of special software for the average internet user. We will be able to serve Substratum Requests directly to the default browser (Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) without any special software installed on the average consuming users computer.
How Substratum Works
Ease of Use: currently nearly everything that has to do with crypto or the blockchain is very difficult to use and requires technical knowledge. Through our 10+ years of experience working with companies like Apple we understand the importance of a good user experience.
• The average internet user requires NO special software to use the Substratum Network. The default browser will service all requests for average users so they do not need to do ANYTHING different. Users who wish to service requests and receive SUB coins in return will have a point and click user interface that any user can setup. No technical knowledge required. SubstratumPay will be seamlessly integrated and geared towards high conversions of low technical expertise users. • Serving Up of Decentralized Content: Substratum provides a method for serving Decentralized Content (including Web Sites, Data, and Applications) through a Mac, Windows, and Linux application/service that is easy to install and run (requires no technical expertise) and serves up decentralized content using the toolkit that we have developed. This is a point and click process and requires zero technical knowledge. All the user has to do is install the application, click through a few settings and they are up and running and making Substratum Coin. Incentivizing Users to Serve the Content: in order to incentivize users to run the Substratum Network client on their machine we will be providing Substratum Coin to them for doing so. The coin is issued to the serving machine through a micro-transaction from the hosting site to the serving computer. By breaking fees down to a micro-transaction level this will greatly reduce the overall cost to companies and entities that want to host sites and applications on the internet solving yet another problem with the web as it stands today.
Privacy / Security / Encryption: by allowing millions of Substratum Network users to serve content the biggest concern becomes privacy and security. Substratum solves these issues through advanced cryptography algorithms rooted in Artificial Intelligence that ensures all data remains secure. Following the lead of BitCoin this is the strength of cryptocurrency and the crypto movement. Storage and Serving of Content: in order to serve millions of sites, databases, and applications the Substratum Network employs custom developed advanced compression algorithms and machine learning to geolocate the right Substratum Network machine to serve up the content to the appropriate user based on geolocation, this will ensure the fastest load time with the lowest amount of latency and strain on the Substratum Network and both the serving and receiving machine. DNS (Domain Name System): DNS or the Domain Name System is the system that currently tells your browser where to go when you type in a domain name. For instance when you go to Chrome and type in apple.com a DNS lookup is performed to check where to send that request, the DNS system comes back with an IP address and your request is routed there. In the first version of SubstratumDNS will be a complex, AI enabled DNS server that will receive DNS requests along with the geolocation of the requestor and find based off of that information the closest available SubstratumNode that is able to fulfill the request. Development Tools for the Decentralized Web: the Substratum Network will provide an API and SDK for developing tools on the Substratum Platform. This will bring in strong developer support and will accelerate the growth of the decentralized web on the Substratum Network. Net Neutrality: with the Substratum Network ALL web-sites and applications will have EQUAL ability to be broadcast in an equal and fair manner.
International Digital Barriers: currently countries like China have strict regulations on what their 1.379 billion citizens are able to interact with on the internet. Substratum will break down these barriers through a network of decentralized computers running the Substratum Network Software. Where other solutions that are currently used by residents in these countries require special software to be installed, like TOR, Substratum will take a reverse approach and require no special software for the average user.
High Hosting Costs: currently businesses must pay high hosting fees to get their web-sites on the internet. Amazon Web Services launched a 3.5BIL USD per year business by attempting to solve this problem. They allow you to pay for how many minutes you run a web / database server. Substratum completely solves this problem through the power of cryptocurrency by only charging for each request that is processed. You can check out the website here: • Substratum.net o And the whitepaper is available in multiple languages inclusive of Mandarin.
Furthermore, Substratum and the founders are very active in the slack – which they have recently hosted an AMA (ask me anything); I took the liberty of getting this information and if you are interested about the project to read more into it. Obviously they can’t reveal the inner workings of their product due to product sensitivity and being ahead of their competition but they are always up to date with the community through several videos on Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxUJoTH0XLERKl55zGnFI6g) and announcements through their social media. I recommend you follow them.
Q: Any major talks with exchanges yet? A: We just announced that we are launching on our FIRST official exchange of COSS.IO on 9/30 trading against BTC and ETH. More to follow.
Q: Will I be able to run a supernode? A: From the beginning NO. Supernodes will only be for Substratum; however, they will run the SAME software that are used to run a NODE. In time we will develop a requirement list to run a supernode. If you qualify you can then run a SuperNode and receive a premium payout
Q: Is it possible to show a few examples of SUB payouts you get from running a node, and the tell us the ratios that affect the amount/way to calculate it somehow? (SUB owned, for how long you've been running a node etc..) Or is that still in testing? What's the difference in node rewards from someone who has 0 SUB's as opposed to someone who has X amount of SUB's? A: So the calculations for this are in process; however, you can watch our video "How Substrate Per Request Is Calculated" on our YouTube channel for an idea of what variables go into each calculation
Q: How do we prevent DDoS? A: The first step is not talking about how we prevent DDoS or any other hack. We call that security through obscurity. :slightly_smiling_face: Secondly, one of the primary ways to prevent a DDoS attack is decentralization. Well that's perfect. Lastly, there are other techniques, like black-holing and basically shutting a node down. The great news is that we will be decentralized so we are only talking about a node or specific IP Address that will not disrupt the network. :thumbsup:
Q: Say i got a website i want to publish on Substratum, how does this process go? A: Just a shout out if you ask for a lot of detail regarding technology stack and how exactly something will work we are most likely going to give you general answers. This is not to skirt the question. We want to be 10 steps ahead of anyone with nefarious plans before we get launched. You will be seeing more on this very soon. You should be seeing a video drop on this in the next week or two. The goal is to make this easy to use and powerful, plus empower others to use the tools. We're looking at things to different ways one is towards the average user who just want something sitting on their system and doesn't need any more details and the other is a super user who wants a lot of configuration options.
Q: When more people will use Substratum and more will run nodes, the value of SUB will increase. How will it be calculated how much SUB you get as a reward for running a node as value increases? Will it be calculated by Substratum itself or will it be changed manually every so often? A: We will be calculating against the live value of Substratum
Q: Is substratum detectable, for example if it’s used in a country like china and they are caught on these sites that are blocked by government… Can it be detected? A: The goal is to make it constantly moving. We do not want it to be. fast, easy, powerful, anonymous.
Q: Will there be Master Nodes? A: We will have some services that are available that will help provision nodes into the network. We are still story mapping this flow and architecture.
Q: Could we get more information about what you require to do to be a beta tester? A: To be a beta tester you only need to add yourself to the #beta-tester channel here in Slack. You will be notified when we are ready for you to download and install and the process and requirements to continue to run the software
Q: Will you keep us informed on a at least weekly base to tell/ show us the progress made? A: Yes! We will continue to drop at least 2 professionally made update videos each week (with Jason Burns the guy who does them) and we will be doing more and more candid videos
Q: Who is the winner of 10k subs and what idea did he give? And what about 2nd place and 3rd place. A: To be announced shortly. The Substrate is reserved for the payout
Q: Can we mine Sub without the software? A: I will personally be selling pick-axes on my personal website "pixaxesforsale.biz" for a low cost of $19.99
Q: Unless they disclose intelligent life in space, people are still going to be mad at the end of this. A lot more will be happy though A: Haven't found intelligent life in space. Some would question finding it on earth.
Q: From a legal stand point How are we protected if someone is running illegal content on our Node? A: Take a look at our video of "How Substratum Secures Your Site Content". You will never hold the entire piece of data except perhaps in memory if you are the one serving the request so you could never be culpable. Amazon isn't held responsible if I host illegal content now
Q: What about content control? child porno .. and so on ... ? Is there anything to control the content or? A: Excellent question. This was a big concern for us. We do not want Substratum to become the dark web. The goal is to allow the community to self-govern, vote up and down, call out illegal activity. The utilities will allow those with bad intentions to be called out. The more we grow the better we will be about wiping out things like child porn, and just as bad human trafficking.
Q: When will the raised money going to be donated? A: We have already donated $10K out and we have a pending wire for $40K going out Monday. We are working to find the BEST places with the IMMEDIATE needs.
Q: When will the livestream of the burn be? A: Burn #1 will be a livestream of my computer screen later tonight. I will announce on twitter at least an hour ahead of time and we will record it so people can see it later
Q: What will the final circulating supply be after all three token burns? A: We are still getting a FINAL number on this, we are still doing some FINAL Bonus sends but we will have the number VERY VERY soon and we will be posting it. We will be burning 60MIL tokens tonight so that should give you some kind of an idea.
Q: can you stop slack from freezing my firefox? A: Use the downloadable app, or get better internet, or get a new computer. Sounds like a dumpster fire.
Q: Everyone brings up the obvious choice of child porno that needs to be dealt with via content control. What about grayzones such as weed-selling sites? Its illegal in some countries, some not. How will Substratum deal with these grey-zones? A: Give me liberty or give me death.
Q: Could i have an invite to beta test channel on slack? A: Yes, just let a moderator know.
Q: could i get more information on what beta testers are required to do? I will happily be one if it helps the process and I actually manage to do it. A: Join the #beta-testers channel here
Q: when will we see a new homepage? A: This is being worked on now!
Q: is there a minimum amount of SUB needed to run a node? A: NO! 0 Substrate, don't worry, you will have some soon once you turn it on
Q: What about running an "micronode" on any phone (there is a big % using phones all the time), I mean an app installed on phone to run a node and to host only small content like a photos... Did you think about of this? A: https://youtu.be/h6tZ_ZFuFmY
Q: What if my website ethically and morally right and people downvote it out of jealousy will my website be removed if there are more number of downvotes and my content is clean? A: The process is NOT that simple, we will release more details later but this is being taken into consideration. I answered in a bit more detail above as well
Q: Does the Sub team ever sleep ? A: Only when driving
Q: Can I run a node on a VPS? A: I certainly won't be telling people how or where to run the node software. Do the best you can. I actually answered the VPS question above too. We will have a command line version if that is the question. That you can run on something like Ubuntu Server if you want
Q: Can the voting system for all illegal stuff on the internet also be used in a 'bad' way on the regular websites to for example gain commercial/business advantages? A: It should not, no one will have 'master control' All control, so the market decides always.
Q: Who will profit from cryptopay? How will this bring value to SUB tokens? A: Everyone will as we gain dominance. But also, Substratum the company will take a small percentage. This will enable us to continue building awesome apps. CryptoPay will be the cornerstone of many good things to come. Think retail, goods and services.
Q: I work at a games company with 200+ high powered pcs. If I install sub nodes on every single one of them at night, will IT be able to catch and fire me A: See your HR manual, or HR supervisor for those questions.
Q: How do websites and hosters remain protected from hacking, if sites are created with innate vulnerabilities does that expose other sites hosted by the same node? A: This is a great question. Hosting Nodes will have to vet out their security. Again, being decentralized goes a long way in providing security. So does encryption. We will help hosts be the best hosts possible.
Q: Please explain the earning in SUB by running a node? A: So the SUB comes FROM the HOST (who purchases the SUB) to the NODE for the cost of the transaction. https://youtu.be/LWZ1DIGGOoQ
Q: When will the tokens be sent for the 100 Sub giveaway A: Shortly
Q: How will Substratum market themselves towards countries that needs SUB the most but are hard to reach, such as North Korea, Africa, China? A: Think spider web. The more that join, and use, the less it can be controlled.
Q: How long will this bear market last for? A: Let me put the fortune teller hat on. Crypto is a young demographic currently. It will be bear'ish until we make the technology easier and they get older.
