What's Happening At Dash? | Continually Updated News & Announcements Thread

Welcome to dashpay!
If you are new to Dash, we encourage you to check out our wiki, where the Dash project is explained from the ground up with many links to valuable information resources. Also check out the menu bar on top and the sidebar to the right. We have very active Discord and Telegram channels where the community is happy to answer any and all newcomer questions.

Purpose of this post

This post is directed towards community members who wish to rapidly access information on current developments surrounding the Dash cryptocurrency.
Lately we've noticed how the pace of events picked up significantly within the Dash project due to many years of hard work coming together and pieces falling into place ("Evolution" is finally here. It's called Dash Platform). For the purpose of keeping these many pieces of information together, however, singular Reddit submissions are insufficient. Thus we decided to maintain a pinned thread collecting blog posts, interviews, articles, podcasts, videos & announcements. Check back regularly, as this thread will always feature the latest news around Dash, while also serving as a mid-term archive for important announcements and developments.

Mockingbird X.0

Imagine if there was one desk that all stories could cross so that, at 4am, a media plan could be decided upon and disseminated where all news outlets coordinated to set the goalposts of debate and hyper focused on specific issues to drive a narrative to control how you vote and how you spend money; where Internet shills were given marching orders in tandem to what was shown on television, printed in newspapers and spread throughout articles on the World Wide Web.
https://i.imgur.com/Elnci0M.png
In the past, we had Operation Mockingbird, where the program was supremely confident that it could control stories around the world, even in instructions to cover up any story about a possible “Yeti” sighting, should it turn out they were real.
https://i.imgur.com/121LXqy.png
If, in 1959, the government was confident in its ability to control a story about a Yeti, then what is their level of confidence in controlling stories, today?
https://i.imgur.com/jQFVYew.png
https://i.imgur.com/ZKMYGJj.png
In fact, we have a recent example of a situation similar to the Yeti. When Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch met on the TARMAC to spike the Hillary email investigation, the FBI was so confident it wasn’t them, that their entire focus was finding the leaker, starting with searching within the local PD. We have documentation that demonstrates the state of mind of the confidence the upper levels of the FBI have when dealing with the media.

The marriage between mainstream media and government is a literal one and this arrangement is perfectly legal.
https://i.imgur.com/OAd4vpf.png
But, this problem extends far beyond politics; the private sector, the scientific community, even advice forums are shilled heavily. People are paid to cause anxiety, recommend people break up and otherwise sow depression and nervousness. This is due to a correlating force that employs “systems psychodynamics”, focusing on “tension centered” strategies to create “organizational paradoxes” by targeting people’s basic assumptions about the world around them to create division and provide distraction.

In this day and age, it is even easier to manage these concepts and push a controlled narrative from a central figure than it has ever been. Allen & Co is a “boutique investment firm” that managed the merger between Disney and Fox and operates as an overseeing force for nearly all media and Internet shill armies, while having it’s fingers in sports, social media, video games, health insurance, etc.
https://i.imgur.com/zlpBh3c.png
https://i.imgur.com/e5ZvFFJ.png
Former director of the CIA and Paul Brennan’s former superior George Tenet, holds the reigns of Allen & Co. The cast of characters involves a lot of the usual suspects.
https://i.imgur.com/3OlrX7G.png
In 1973, Allen & Company bought a stake in Columbia Pictures. When the business was sold in 1982 to Coca-Cola, it netted a significant profit. Since then, Herbert Allen, Jr. has had a place on Coca-Cola's board of directors.
Since its founding in 1982, the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference has regularly drawn high-profile attendees such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Rupert Murdoch, Barry Diller, Michael Eisner, Oprah Winfrey, Robert Johnson, Andy Grove, Richard Parsons, and Donald Keough.
Allen & Co. was one of ten underwriters for the Google initial public offering in 2004. In 2007, Allen was sole advisor to Activision in its $18 billion merger with Vivendi Games. In 2011, the New York Mets hired Allen & Co. to sell a minority stake of the team. That deal later fell apart. In November 2013, Allen & Co. was one of seven underwriters on the initial public offering of Twitter. Allen & Co. was the adviser of Facebook in its $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp in February 2014.
In 2015, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Time Warner in its $80 billion 2015 merger with Charter Communications, AOL in its acquisition by Verizon, Centene Corporation in its $6.8 billion acquisition of Health Net, and eBay in its separation from PayPal.
In 2016, Allen & Co was the lead advisor to Time Warner in its $108 billion acquisition by AT&T, LinkedIn for its merger talks with Microsoft, Walmart in its $3.3 billion purchase of Jet.com, and Verizon in its $4.8 billion acquisition of Yahoo!. In 2017, Allen & Co. was the advisor to Chewy.com in PetSmart’s $3.35 billion purchase of the online retailer.
Allen & Co throws the Sun Valley Conference every year where you get a glimpse of who sows up. Harvey Weinstein, though a past visitor, was not invited last year.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allen_%26_Company_Sun_Valley_Conference
Previous conference guests have included Bill and Melinda Gates, Warren and Susan Buffett, Tony Blair, Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Allen alumnus and former Philippine Senator Mar Roxas, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, Quicken Loans Founder & Chairman Dan Gilbert, Yahoo! co-founder Jerry Yang, financier George Soros, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Media Mogul Rupert Murdoch, eBay CEO Meg Whitman, BET founder Robert Johnson, Time Warner Chairman Richard Parsons, Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight, Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell, NBA player LeBron James, Professor and Entrepreneur Sebastian Thrun, Governor Chris Christie, entertainer Dan Chandler, Katharine Graham of The Washington Post, Diane Sawyer, InterActiveCorp Chairman Barry Diller, Linkedin co-founder Reid Hoffman, entrepreneur Wences Casares, EXOR and FCA Chairman John Elkann, Sandro Salsano from Salsano Group, and Washington Post CEO Donald E. Graham, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and Oprah Winfrey.

George Tenet, with the reigns of Allen & Co in his hands, is able to single-handedly steer the entire Mockingbird apparatus from cable television to video games to Internet shills from a singular location determining the spectrum of allowable debate. Not only are they able to target people’s conscious psychology, they can target people’s endocrine systems with food and pornography; where people are unaware, on a conscious level, of how their moods and behavior are being manipulated.
https://i.imgur.com/mA3MzTB.png
"The problem with George Tenet is that he doesn't seem to care to get his facts straight. He is not meticulous. He is willing to make up stories that suit his purposes and to suppress information that does not."
"Sadly but fittingly, 'At the Center of the Storm' is likely to remind us that sometimes what lies at the center of a storm is a deafening silence."
https://i.imgur.com/YHMJnnP.png
Tenet joined President-elect Bill Clinton's national security transition team in November 1992. Clinton appointed Tenet Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the National Security Council, where he served from 1993 to 1995. Tenet was appointed Deputy Director of Central Intelligence in July 1995. Tenet held the position as the DCI from July 1997 to July 2004. Citing "personal reasons," Tenet submitted his resignation to President Bush on June 3, 2004. Tenet said his resignation "was a personal decision and had only one basis—in fact, the well-being of my wonderful family—nothing more and nothing less. In February 2008, he became a managing director at investment bank Allen & Company.

We have the documentation that demonstrates what these people could possibly be doing with all of these tools of manipulation at their fingertips.
The term for it is “covert political action” for which all media put before your eyes is used to serve as a veneer… a reality TV show facade of a darker modus operandum.

It is now clear that we are facing an implacable enemy whose avowed objective is world domination by whatever means and at whatever costs. There are no rules in such a game. Hitherto acceptable norms of human conduct do not apply. If the US is to survive, longstanding American concepts of "fair play" must be reconsidered. We must develop effective espionage and counterespionage services and must learn to subvert, sabotage and destroy our enemies by more clever, more sophisticated means than those used against us. It may become necessary that the American people be made acquainted with, understand and support this fundamentally repugnant philosophy.

Intelligence historian Jeffrey T. Richelson says the S.A. has covered a variety of missions. The group, which recently was reorganized, has had about 200 officers, divided among several groups: the Special Operations Group; the Foreign Training Group, which trains foreign police and intelligence officers; the Propaganda and Political Action Group, which handles disinformation; the Computer Operations Group, which handles information warfare; and the Proprietary Management Staff, which manages whatever companies the CIA sets up as covers for the S.A.
Scientology as a CIA Political Action Group – “It is a continuing arrangement…”: https://mikemcclaughry.wordpress.com/2015/08/25/scientology-as-a-cia-political-action-group-it-is-a-continuing-arrangement/
…Those operations we inaugurated in the years 1955-7 are still secret, but, for present purposes, I can say all that’s worth saying about them in a few sentences – after, that is, I offer these few words of wisdom. The ‘perfect’ political action operation is, by definition, uneventful. Nothing ‘happens’ in it. It is a continuing arrangement, neither a process nor a series of actions proceeding at a starting point and ending with a conclusion.

When you consider the number of forces that can be contained within a single “political action group” in the form on a “boutique investment firm,” where all sides of political arguments are predetermined by a selected group of actors who have been planted, compromised or leveraged in some way in order to control the way they spin their message.
https://i.imgur.com/tU4MD4S.png
The evidence of this coordinated effort is overwhelming and the “consensus” that you see on TV, in sports, in Hollywood, in the news and on the Internet is fabricated.
Under the guise of a fake account a posting is made which looks legitimate and is towards the truth is made - but the critical point is that it has a VERY WEAK PREMISE without substantive proof to back the posting. Once this is done then under alternative fake accounts a very strong position in your favour is slowly introduced over the life of the posting. It is IMPERATIVE that both sides are initially presented, so the uninformed reader cannot determine which side is the truth. As postings and replies are made the stronger 'evidence' or disinformation in your favour is slowly 'seeded in.'
Thus the uninformed reader will most likely develop the same position as you, and if their position is against you their opposition to your posting will be most likely dropped. However in some cases where the forum members are highly educated and can counter your disinformation with real facts and linked postings, you can then 'abort' the consensus cracking by initiating a 'forum slide.'
When you find yourself feeling like common sense and common courtesy aren’t as common as they ought to be, it is because there is a massive psychological operation controlled from the top down to ensure that as many people as possible are caught in a “tension based” mental loop that is inflicted on them by people acting with purpose to achieve goals that are not in the interest of the general population, but a method of operating in secret and corrupt manner without consequences.
Notice that Jeffrey Katzenberg, of Disney, who is intertwined with Allen & Co funds the Young Turks. He is the perfect example of the relationship between media and politics.
Katzenberg has also been involved in politics. With his active support of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, he was called "one of Hollywood's premier political kingmakers and one of the Democratic Party's top national fundraisers."
With cash from Jeffrey Katzenberg, The Young Turks looks to grow paid subscribers:
https://digiday.com/media/with-cash-from-katzenberg-the-young-turks-look-to-grow-paid-subscribers/
Last week, former DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg’s new mobile entertainment company WndrCo was part of a $20 million funding round in TYT Network, which oversees 30 news and commentary shows covering politics, pop culture, sports and more. This includes the flagship “The Young Turks” program that streams live on YouTube every day. Other investors in the round included venture capital firms Greycroft Partners, E.ventures and 3L Capital, which led the round. This brings total funding for Young Turks to $24 million.
How Hollywood's Political Donors Are Changing Strategies for the Trump Era:
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/hollywood-political-donors-are-changing-strategy-post-trump-1150545
Hollywood activism long has been depicted as a club controlled by a handful of powerful white men: Katzenberg, Spielberg, Lear, David Geffen, Haim Saban and Bob Iger are the names most often mentioned. But a new generation of power brokers is ascendant, including J.J. Abrams and his wife, Katie McGrath, cited for their personal donations and bundling skills; Shonda Rhimes, who held a get-out-the-vote rally at USC's Galen Center on Sept. 28 that drew 10,000 people; CAA's Darnell Strom, who has hosted events for Nevada congresswoman Jacky Rosen and Arizona congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema; and former Spotify executive Troy Carter, who held three fundraisers for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (Carter also was a fundraiser for President Obama).
Soros Group Buys Viacom's DreamWorks Film Library:
https://www.forbes.com/2006/03/17/soros-viacom-dreamworks-cx_gl_0317autofacescan11.html#541a895f1f22
Viacom, after splitting off from Les Moonves Les Moonves ' CBS , still holds Paramount Pictures, and that movie studio in December agreed to acquire DreamWorks SKG, the creative shop founded by the Hollywood triumvirate of Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg (a former exec at The Walt Disney Co.). DreamWorks Animation had been spun off into a separate company.
Now it's time for Freston to make back some money--and who better to do a little business with than George Soros? The billionaire financier leads a consortium of Soros Strategic Partners LP and Dune Entertainment II LLC, which together are buying the DreamWorks library--a collection of 59 flicks, including Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator, and American Beauty.
The money you spend on media and junk food and in taxes goes to these groups who then decide how best to market at you so that they decide how you vote by creating a fake consensus to trick into thinking that you want something other than what is best for you; but will inevitably result in more money being funneled to the top, creating further separation between the super rich and the average person. The goal will be to assert creeping authoritarianism by generating outrage against policies and issues they hate. Part of manipulating your basic assumptions is also to use schadenfreude (think canned laughter on TV) against characters who support the cause that might actually do you the most good (which reaffirms and strengthens your confirmation biased along predetermined political lines).
https://i.imgur.com/PW1cRtj.png
We have a population being taught to hate socialism and love capitalism when the truth is no country is practicing either. These terms are merely disguises for political oligarchies where the collection of wealth is less about getting themselves rich and more about keeping everyone else poor.
What can you guess about the world around you if it turned out that every consensus that was forced on you was fake?
How much money would it take to make it look like 51% of the Internet believed in completely idiotic ideas? Combine shill operations with automation and AI’s, and the cost becomes a good investment relative to the return when measured in political power.
Even the people who are well intentioned and very vocal do not have to consciously be aware that they are working for a political action group. A covert political group will always prefer an unwitting tool to help push their agenda, so that they can remain in the shadows.

TOP SECRET SPECIAL HANDLING NOFORN
CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
Directorate of Operations
October 16, 1964
MEMORANDUM FOR THE DIRECTOR OF THE CIA
Subject: After action report of
Operation CUCKOO (TS)
INTRODUCTION

1) Operation CUCKOO was part of the overall operation CLEANSWEEP, aimed at eliminating domestic opposition to activities undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency's special activities division, in main regard to operation GUILLOTINE.

2) Operation CUCKOO was approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Department of Defense and the office of The President of the United States as a covert domestic action to be under taken within the limits of Washington D.C as outlined by Secret Executive Order 37.

3) Following the publishing of the Warren Commission, former special agent Mary Pinchot Meyer (Operation MOCKINGBIRD, Operation SIREN) also was married to Cord Meyer (Operation MOCKINGBIRD, Operation GUILLOTINE) threatened to disclose the details of several Special Activities Divisions' operations, including but not limited to, Operation SIREN and GUILLOTENE.
​1
TOP SECRET SPECIAL HANDLING NOFORN
4) It was deemed necessary by senior Directorate of Operations members to initiate Operation CUCKOO as an extension of Operation CLEANSWEEP on November 30th. After Mary Pinchot Meyer threatened to report her knowledge of Operation GUILLOTENE and the details of her work in Operation SIREN from her affair with the former President.

5) Special Activities Division was given the green light after briefing president Johnson on the situation. The situation report was forwarded to the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of staff, who both approved of the parameters of the operation, as outlined under article C of secret executive order 37 (see attached copy of article).
​PLANNING STAGES
6) 8 members of the special activities division handpicked by operation lead William King Harvey began planning for the operation on October 3rd, with planned execution before October 16th.

7) The (?) of the operation was set as the neighborhood of Georgetown along the Potomac river, where the operators would observe, take note on routines, and eventually carry the operation.

8) After nothing Meyer's routines, Edward "Eddy" Reid was picked as the operation point man who would intersect Meyer on her walk on October 12th, with lead William King Harvey providing long range support if necessary from across the Chesapeake and Ohio canal (see illustration A for detailed map).

9) Edward Reid was planned to be dressed in the manner of a homeless black man, due to his resemblances to local trash collector (later found out to be Raymond Crump) who inhabits the AO and the path that Reid was planned to intersect Meyer.

When will we see the first VR blockbuster movie? by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
VR is not so easy to make movies for. Plus, VR by its very nature requires one human per hmd. So the method of distribution is not as clear cut as a motion picture cinema. I mean the distribution is fine, in fact it is probably easier than ever. What is difficult is that you have to be in a VR hmd to watch the movie. Mass consumption of a motion picture will not come quickly.
But give things a couple of years. Really, that's it--maybe about 5 years, when VR hmds are more like glasses (and they're gonna be) The FOV will be to your peripheral vision, the resolution will look like, well, real life depending on things like "meta-lenses" and "light-field" technology.
I'm an early adopter of VR. On my Oculus Rift is a VR experience that is not a movie per se, but a demonstration of the commitment of Hollywood to develop for VR. The app is called "Within" and the short is called "Take Flight". It is star studded. It is also one of the truly fully 3D VR features out there. A lot of VR real life imagery is 360 degree immersive, but 2D flat like an Omni theater around you sort of. This short though? Wow! I highly recommend it.
But this short is analogous to a motion picture made in say, 1895 by the 'Lumière brothers'. Film makers don't really understand the method of the medium just yet. We have not even arrived at a Georges Méliès moment yet. But as the decades go by, it's going to get pretty crazy with new forms of genre that simply don't exist today. Many movies will probably center directly on the observer in some kind of way. The trick is to get you look where the director wants you to look. "Take Flight" does that by putting the action in a full orbit around you. The effect is pretty keen, but probably primitive by standards of say 20 years from now. Of course since this is futurology, things may be way different in 20 years too. All that "accelerating change" you know.
I just got me delivered an 'Oculus Go' yesterday from Amazon. I watched a very good resolution "Take Flight" 100% tether free.
It's like... magick.
I have some very distinct thoughts about VR if you like.

How Important is it for Self-Driving Cars to be Electric? by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
Interestingly automobiles were developed to be electric as early as 1884. Thomas Edison tried his darndest to popularize the electric car. Even early models of electric cars were nearly silent with a gentle hum, they did not have to be cranked and they did not vibrate and stink of fumes. But it was simply too early in rechargable battery history for the electric car to take. Also they just could not drive as fast as an ICE. By 1913 with the advent of the electric starter (no more hand cranking) and an absolute plentitude of petroleum--cheap gas and collaborating automotive manufacturers put an end to the electric car almost in it's entirety as a dedicated consumer product until pretty much the 1980s.
Now of course our electric cars have prodigious battery storage capacity (range), can drive just as fast if not faster than any ICE and one can be charged in roughly the time it takes to pump gas in a regular ICE.
I don't see a downside to this. Certainly it would help to abate human caused global warming. And to argue that they are too quiet and can't be heard approaching is one of the stupider arguments in human history. To me that is like saying; " Where are we going to get all our transplantable organs from without healthy people tragically (but usefully) dying in human caused MVAs once these SDVs take over?"
Plus I want that futuristic "hum" in my level 5 autonomy subscription SDV.

Delivering VR in Perfect Focus With Nanostructure Meta-lenses by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
This is my quote from the other day. I knew this was coming.
Then we have VAR. It is ultimate primitive today. But already powerful new technologies are developing that will take VAR, but particularly VR and will make it a technological phenomenon such as the world has never seen. The most recent was that weird "metalens" that I just learned about the other day. And everyone else did too. It was big news in this sub-reddit. But my point is that technology is ideally suited to advance our VR in ways that we cannot today even comprehend.

Tesla making model 3 battery packs in 17 minutes down from 7 hours by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1,329 points 3 months ago
Interesting takeaway about "over-automating" things.
“One example would be, we have these fiberglass mats on top of the battery pack. They’re basically fluff. We tried to automate the placement and bonding of fluff to the top of the battery pack, which was ridiculous. ‘Flufferbot,’ which was really an incredibly difficult machine to make work. Machines are not good at picking up pieces of fluff. Hands are way better at doing that.
Me: "Not for much longer I bet."

The Army Is Working on Brain Hacks to Help Soldiers Deal With Information Overload by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 4 points 3 months ago
Important takeaway:
Separately from the Army's Cognition and Neuroergonomics Collaborative Technology Alliance and DARPA's Squad X, the military has been working on an “implantable neural interface” that could allow soldiers and AIs to directly communicate.
That's right, a brain modem, one that translates data into electronic impulses that are compatible with a human being's own thoughts.

Biology will be the next great computing platform, DNA will be the code that runs it, and CRISPR will be the programming language. by mvea in Futurology


[–]izumi3682 5 points 3 months ago
I always think something like that too. But then I think about what exactly our goals are.
Consider the bird and the horse. Humans have always wanted to fly like the bird. Through science and technology we managed to fly like the bird. But our manmade "birds" today can move at nearly seven times the speed of sound. I am not even including spacecraft. For most of recorded human history we used the horse to travel about and carry things. Now our manmade emulations of the horse are the multitude of methods of artificial automotive transportation to include the train and the plane, the car and the truck. These clever emulations courtesy of the industrial revolution took the example of the bird and the horse and changed them beyond anything we could recognize and improved them, by our standards, absolutely astronomically. And darned if the narrow AI is not going to soon be running all of these devices in another exponential technological improvement. Watch as in the next few years you see the advent of the level 5 autonomy human passenger carrying flying drone!
Just imagine what our emulations of the human mind are going to be like.

Artificial intelligence vs intelligence augmentation by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 3 months ago
Well now, this is kinda what we should be angling towards. A manner of easily accessing the narrow AI with our minds. This is not so much a tomorrow or next year technology though. I would say it is going to take between 20-30 years to realize. That seems kind of long from today, but in the scheme of human recorded history of the last 6,000 years, it is as brief a time as the life of a mayfly. And the reason I say 6,000 years is because on the other side of that is a mostly (hopefully) 'human friendly' technological singularity.
A human of today, 2018, would no more be able to comprehend a derived human after that TS, than an australopithecus could comprehend a homo sapiens sapien's abstract thought, language based speech and tool-making abilities.
I see evidence of efforts today that we are striving to work towards that kind of TS. The development of the BMI and even that neat little trick of a device that can attach to your head externally and can "understand" your sub-vocalizations and have a assistant bot chat back to you through an earphone, demonstrates that not too long from now, we will have the sum total of all human knowledge within each human mind as naturally accessible as breathing. But a lot more understanding of how thoughts and neurons and neural networks and interfaces work needs to be done. Like I said 20-30 years.
But of course so many other factors are going to come into play in that intervening time, that this technology will seem very logical to everyone. And it is absolutely going to be necessary. I read not too long ago that in the last 2 years we have produced more information than the last 6,000 years up to 2 years ago, combined. See? That is why we call it "big data". (Yes, I understand a significant percentage of that is screamingly funny cat videos--but that doesn't detract from the point I'm trying to make.)
To be able to proceed as a sentient outer space or inner space (I have a "theory" about that) civilization we are going to have to be able to gainfully access and use that data. And we are also going to have be able to continuously absorb further data as well. As of today I have no idea how we are going to do this. I always fall back on my argument that if the laws of physics as we understood them in the year 1400, today 2018 or will in 3018, allow such a thing, we will at some point accomplish it.
And there is one more point that I must emphasize here in relation to all of this discussion. The term is "accelerating change".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerating_change
It is definitely a very real, demonstrable phenomenon. Our computer processing speed and capacity, "Moore's Law" be damned, is exponentially improving. All of the full sum of data we have today, plus our processing power is going to double in less than 5 years at a maximum. Sit for a second and take that in. And I am being wycked conservative here. I am not even taking the potentially transcending impact of fully functional quantum computers into account. The so-called impending "quantum supremacy". That in itself may change the rules of the game in ways we already can't imagine.
This processing speed, data capacity and our feverish development of AI, put humanity into a sort of race now. Will the AI stay external from the human mind? Or will we meld with it? Staying external worries me. External AGI and a potential EI could mean the end of our run. To my way of thinking the AI must merge with the human mind. I really don't think there is a choice. But like I said before, the resulting humans would be... well, not business as usual. A first step towards abandoning biology I suspect.

Technology is finally going to kill car dealers, and consumers win by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 21 points 3 months ago
So many institutions and norms in the last say, fifty years have been absolutely essential or at worst essential necessary evils. I am telling you that in as little as ten years, the world is going to change almost incomprehensibly.
The industrial revolution took roughly 200 years to fully unfold. This next revolution which I place as beginning in the year 2012 when GPU narrow AI began to really take hold, will take about 20 years to unfold.
We are approaching a knife edge of danger before we even have to worry about "AI overlords". The narrow AI, robotics and automation are going to, if not eliminate most employ, are certainly going to eliminate enough employ that we will hit a critical mass of societal unease. The potential of revolt and upheaval is high.
I can only speak for the USA here, but the USA government is well aware of what is coming and is frankly concerned. Here is an official report from about 18 months ago. I read this and I can see why there is concern.
First, here is the report dated Dec 2016.
https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/sites/whitehouse.gov/files/documents/Artificial-Intelligence-Automation-Economy.PDF
To make a long story short, the USA government recognizes what is coming in terms of AI, robotics and automation. The hope is that workers can be "retrained" or can accommodate to the AI, robotics and automation within a given profession. Ideas such as UBI and "post-scarcity are dismissed out of hand.
Here is the link to a comment I made a while back explaining the difference between an industrial revolution that took 200 years to unfold versus an AI revolution that is going to take about 20 years to unfold.

[–]izumi3682[S] -2 points 3 months ago
I have always thought so. It took us 6,000 years to develop "fiat" in regular money. "Bitcoin" and it's ilk are just a few smarter humans taking advantage of the far larger cohort of less smart humans. In a sort of backhanded compliment, I see this as a good comment on the eternal brilliant cleverness of the human intellect. We will figure out AGI in no time I bet.

VR Needs More Social: 77% of Virtual Reality Users Want More Social Engagement by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
Whoa--whoa! Give them a bit of time to get things right. VR as a consumer product has been available for 2 years. In the last one year, two highly advanced social VR sites came into being. Both are directly derived from "Second Life" btw. I just wanted to throw that in because I have been happily hanging out in SL for over ten years now. Anyway, the two sites are "High Fidelity" and "Sansar". I have been to HF numerous times. For as limited as VR is yet, this is a pretty darn well realized VR social arena.
Here is more detail if you are interested. I also talk quite a bit about Google EarthVR which is something else you might find truly amazing when it comes to VR.

Artificial intelligence is silly by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 4 points 3 months ago
The author of this article is thinking too limitedly. He is thinking like a human in the year 2018. He is trying to juxtapose what our world up to now is and has been, with what the future is going to bring. That is like trying to envision the year 1970 from the year 1920. Lots of airplanes, zeppelins and skyscrapers and searchlights, because searchlights were considered to be absolutely amazing technology in the year 1920.
What is coming in the next 5-30 years is going to be beyond anything that humans in the year 2018 can properly envision. That is partly because our minds in their current biological configuration, absent AI enhancement, simply cannot conceive of what the changes are going to be like.

Too late. The cat's out of the bag. Not only can we not stop or even slow the advance of our AI development, but it is clearly now in a point of acceleration wherein the rate of acceleration itself is accelerating. Our science, technology, even economies are inextricably dependent on the ever increasing speed of (narrow, for now) AI development.
This may seem alarming to you, but draw back to a universal overview, one far removed from the planet Earth and you will see this is a likely natural and normal "evolution" of the universe itself.

Progress on designing multi-generation interstellar asteroid ship (Me: BIG logical thinking error here) by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 1 point 3 months ago
In this case, the thriving community of space explorers who — unlike computers, AIs and robotics — need to LIVE. To eat, exercise, work, have fun, sleep, get sick, get well, get old, die and make new people in turn. Many of the ‘’people maintenance’’ functions we can imagine are really pretty easy to turn over to AI powered robotics.
Me: People on interstellar "asteroid ships"--"They're just like US!"
I don't think we are going to go on asteroid ships to the stars. In fact ultimately I don't think we are going to the stars at all. To me this concept smacks of the ancient Romans envisioning an olive tree one thousand feet high that can provide olive oil to the entire empire.
I think the future will go more like this...

This Presidential Hopeful Wants to Save America From an A.I. Takeover by izumi3682 in Futurology


[–]izumi3682[S] 2 points 3 months ago
Thank you! To me the important thing is getting this information out there. A perfect analogy for homo sapiens sapiens and our humanity today is the massive intricately tunneled ant mound, with all of its wars and problems and achievements and minutiae of their everyday lives lived in utter chemical pheromone tunnel vision. They have no idea or even concept of the massive earth mover about to fully end all they know.
This link here is a bit of a rabbit hole, but I have learned the very hard way that my old commentary eventually vanishes into distance and I can no longer access it. Years and years of commentary now gone to me. So I have begun to consolidate and save in large link chunks what I can, when I think something is relevant. Here is a link that leads to one of those rabbit holes if you like. You will find many links to videos and sources.

SafeNetwork - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and anonymity), An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network

Internet is going to be SAFE Network - Secure Access For Everyone (100% privacy, security and
anonymity)
An Anonymous Secure Decentralized Distributed Autonomous Data Network 
Safenet will be a game changer, it can do anything the current internet does, creating and browsing dynamic websites, voice and video chat, email, secure file storage and much more, plus your files literally live on the network until u delete them urself u can also share ur files with others which means the end of torrent and other p2p filesharing apps they will all be replaced with safenet. it's still in alpha state, 1 year from now it will be in release state.

“The SAFE network can provide every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet, from video streaming, encrypted messaging, VOIP, storage and collaboration, exchanges..etc…” Nick Lambert, Chief Operating Officer, MaidSafe
The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is made up of the unused hard drive space, processing power and data connection of its users. It offers a level of security and privacy not currently available on the existing Internet and turns the tables on companies, putting users in control of their data, rather than trusting it to organisations. (By providing your unused computing resources to SAFE you will be paid by the network itself (No humans involved) in a network token, called safecoin.)
why is Maidsafe worth paying attention to? In short, Maidsafe aims to radically change the structure of the internet, which, if successful could have enormous implications for both cryptocurrencies and the internet at large.
In this article, we’ll unpack all things Maidsafe and by the end, you’ll know exactly why this company, network, and token should be on your radar.
History of Maidsafe
Maidsafe was originally conceptualized in 2002 by David Irvine but it wasn’t until 2006 that it was officially incorporated. Its genesis is well captured by this quote from an interview with TechCrunch.
“The reason that this project started was a server-based internet is completely against engineering logic.”
From the early days, Irvine was aware that the internet had the utmost potential to be as much of a runaway success as a catastrophe. Maidsafe is his decade-long quest to liberate internet users from control and avert said catastrophe.
Unlike most its contemporaries in the crypto/decentralized network space, Maidsafe has been around since Apple was developing the first iPhone. Not many startups have this type of a timeline but then again, not many startups are trying to fundamentally restructure the internet.
Over the years, the Maidsafe team has been cooking up a smorgasbord of algorithms. They’ve received 20 granted patents (and 12 pending) and run countless test networks. The main interest here is not rehashing a long history but seeing what comes of subsequent Alpha releases.
What is MaidSafe and the SAFE Network?
MaidSafe is a company that is designing and implementing what they call the SAFE Network - a next generation decentralized and secure network. The SAFE (Secure Access For Everyone) Network is a new secure and decentralized data management service that is built by sharing the unused computer resources of the individual network participants.
Each user of the SAFE Network provides a part of their computer resources: data storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity thus forming a large decentralized network.
The SAFE network puts its user’s safety and security on top of everything else and so the user data is encrypted and broken up into chunks that are spread among the users of the network. The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances, through the study and observation of nature and the social structure of ant colonies. These studies have inspired simple yet profound solutions to complex networking issues that are integrated into the core of the SAFE Network allowing the network to be fast, secure, scalable and highly efficient.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network. There will be no privacy violations weather you decide to host your own website on the network, visit a website somebody else already made, create or run an application or just provide some of your spare computing resources to help make the SAFE network bigger and stronger.
“The SAFE network is a data and communications network that can provide the infrastructure for every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet” Safenet is currently in alpha testing, this means you can use it and test it but everything is hosted on test nodes at the moment. I created my first website this week and it is amazing.
This is truly mind blowing where we are at now with peer to peer and the possibility are endless. What can we do on the Safe network?
Safenet will evolve as more and more developer create new program for it. But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
When the full vision is realized, the Safe Network will be a self-managing, self-correcting network. The system will consist of individual nodes (computers) run by normal people who share resources to construct a system that is completely self-contained. As network volume grows, the architecture is designed to evolve independently to handle its growing responsibilities. Data is continuously encrypted and the entire system never stops self-optimizing.
There are a number of different technical features that make all this possible. Here are a few (for a deeper dive, click here):
*LOGIN AND SECURE YOUR DATA WITH NO MIDDLE MAN:No need to give your password to anyone, or ask a third party’s permission to access your data. Your information, and access to it, belongs to you!
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network.
What is Safecoin (MAID)?
Safecoin is a digital crypto currency token that is in the heart of the SAFE Network. It can be thought of as the oil in the engine of the SAFE Network, and is used as a way for all users of the network to be compensated for the value they provide.
You can think of Safecoin along the ways that Steem Dollars or Steem Power works on Steemit, you get rewarded these for your contribution on the network in the form of useful and interesting posts as well as voting for others. It is not exactly the same thing, but think along these lines.
SafeCoin Is the fuel that drives MaidSafes adoption and use. Safecoins can be purchased, or they can be earned by Farmers or Builders. They are stored within users wallets and provide access to the networks services and applications, or can be bought and sold on exchanges for bitcoin or cash. Safecoins are being distributed entirely automated with no human intervention by an algorithm.
Only 4.3 billion MaidSafeCoins will ever be in circulation at one time and each coin will have its own unique identity. Furthermore Safecoins will be "recycled" when they are being exchanged for network services, so there will be a new supply of coins for users to earn.
Safecoins are given to users in return for them providing some of their unused computing resource to the network. These include free storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity, this process of providing your resource and earning Safecoin in return on the platform is referred to as "Farming". You can think of this as the "mining" for SafeCoin if you are a crypto currency mining, but instead of using only CPU or GPU power to help sustain the network you are sharing parts of your computing resources to be used by the network, so the SAFE network uses Proof of Resource "mining".
“Farmers” provide their unused computing resources to the network. The more they provide, the more they are paid. they can also contribute more than just space, They can contribute processor power as well which will be used as a Network Based Replacement for Server-Side Processing, so low spec devices (e.g. smart phones) would have no problem using apps that require huge processing power, it will also be convenient for universities and some institutions doing scientific computation (no need to buy expensive mainframes anymore they could just use safenetwork, which would be cheaper and faster)
“Builders” are the application developers. They can earn Safecoin in two different ways. Firstly, they can design applications, and the more an App is used the more they are paid. Secondly, they can assist with bug fixes and new features, which in turn strengthens the core of the SAFE network.
What is PtP (Pay the Producer)? It's a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn. The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation, Pay the Producer rewards are network rewards and not paid for by the user.
Pay the producer reward is determined independently of the farmer's reward. It does not reduce the farmer's reward if a "pay-the-producer" pay address is associated to the chunks (content), At this time pay the producer will only be for public content.
.....................................
The SAFE Network is going to compete with and complement the Internet that we love to hate today. Instead of data being relatively open and accessible, the SAFE Network has been designed to securely encrypt all data within the network. This will make privacy the default. If users want their information to be public that is of course no problem, but the way the network is designed, users will have to opt-out of privacy.
This will be a completely brand new grassroots Internet. The massive privately owned server farms that own the data of today’s internet will be replaced by a decentralized network of computers that encrypt user’s files and divide them into many small parts that are duplicated and stored in many places all around the world.
Anyone can join the network anonymously by donating a portion of their hard drive space, computing power and bandwidth.
For contributing their computing resources, the users will receive safecoins and in order to use the computing resources of the network, users will need to have and spend safecoins.
The SAFE Network will be able to do everything the Internet does today, but because it has such a different infrastructure, it will do it in a different way.
Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this restructuring: Denial of service attacks will be useless, in fact the more people use the same websites, the better they will perform.
Cloud storage will be completely private, relatively cheap and always accessible.
Messages, email, and VOIP will be encrypted by default.
Websites will never experience downtime and cannot be censored.
Social networks’ data will be owned by the users and they can choose who has access to it.
Mass surveillance on this network will be impossible; no one will be able to collect your browsing data.
Underutilized computing resources can be monetized.
Direct micropayment channels will be built in, so content producers will not have to advertise to their audience to raise funds. ................................................................................................................. This network is something that will make youtube, twitter, facebook and all those big corporations that are misusing your data and privacy go broke
it also pays you according to the popularity of your public content, there is gonna be an app called SafeTube which is something like youtube with monetization but with no more self censoring fearing demonitization, since the network does the paying by itself, there is no more human bullshit involved, the more views your videos have the more u get paid in safecoin u can then exchange safecoin for $$$ on the SafeExchange App with the people or companies that want to upload to the network but don't have the time or resources to farm safecoin themselves (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

The people that participate in it are not actually aware of the data they have been asked to store on their systems, not they have direct access to what it currently stored on their computers.
Furthermore as a user if you share some of your unused computing resources on the SAFE network you are going to be compensated for doing so and get paid in Safecoin crypto tokens.
The SAFE network is not being controlled by a single large entity or a multiple global ones, it is not controlled by anyone in fact as it is decentralized and the users participating are what is essentially building up the network itself. The safenet is based on nature and how insects react to circumstances, through the study and observation of nature and the social structure of ant colonies. These studies have inspired simple yet profound solutions to complex networking issues that are integrated into the core of the SAFE Network allowing the network to be fast, secure, scalable and highly efficient.
Even Maidsafe who created the safenet won’t be able to alter the network to make it less efficient once it is launch. The network won’t allow less efficient upgrades, only ones that would make it better! How crazy is that! So once it is live, you cannot shut it down anymore.
So without people like you, the future user of the network there will be no network. There will be no privacy violations weather you decide to host your own website on the network, visit a website somebody else already made, create or run an application or just provide some of your spare computing resources to help make the SAFE network bigger and stronger.
“The SAFE network is a data and communications network that can provide the infrastructure for every type of web service that exists on today’s centralised Internet” Safenet is currently in alpha testing, this means you can use it and test it but everything is hosted on test nodes at the moment. I created my first website this week and it is amazing.
This is truly mind blowing where we are at now with peer to peer and the possibility are endless. What can we do on the Safe network?
Safenet will evolve as more and more developer create new program for it. But to start with, you will be able to create website that cannot be taken down or censored and upload sensitive files that only you can read from anywhere in the world. There will be video chat like skype, and everything else the current internet can do.
When the full vision is realized, the Safe Network will be a self-managing, self-correcting network. The system will consist of individual nodes (computers) run by normal people who share resources to construct a system that is completely self-contained. As network volume grows, the architecture is designed to evolve independently to handle its growing responsibilities. Data is continuously encrypted and the entire system never stops self-optimizing.
There are a number of different technical features that make all this possible. Here are a few (for a deeper dive, click here):
*LOGIN AND SECURE YOUR DATA WITH NO MIDDLE MAN:No need to give your password to anyone, or ask a third party’s permission to access your data. Your information, and access to it, belongs to you!
“The MaidSafe vision is to replace today's existing server centric and intrusive systems with a fully distributed, safe, secure and private network. A network with no third party being able to intercept, copy, steal, sell or otherwise access the network’s data.”
How much does it cost to use safenet?
Safenet is totally free to use. The only cost is to offer a part of your hard drive to host part of the network. The more you offer, the more you can upload on the network. (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)
What is Safecoin (MAID)?
Safecoin is a digital crypto currency token that is in the heart of the SAFE Network. It can be thought of as the oil in the engine of the SAFE Network, and is used as a way for all users of the network to be compensated for the value they provide.
You can think of Safecoin along the ways that Steem Dollars or Steem Power works on Steemit, you get rewarded these for your contribution on the network in the form of useful and interesting posts as well as voting for others. It is not exactly the same thing, but think along these lines.
SafeCoin Is the fuel that drives MaidSafes adoption and use. Safecoins can be purchased, or they can be earned by Farmers or Builders. They are stored within users wallets and provide access to the networks services and applications, or can be bought and sold on exchanges for bitcoin or cash. Safecoins are being distributed entirely automated with no human intervention by an algorithm.
Only 4.3 billion MaidSafeCoins will ever be in circulation at one time and each coin will have its own unique identity. Furthermore Safecoins will be "recycled" when they are being exchanged for network services, so there will be a new supply of coins for users to earn.
Safecoins are given to users in return for them providing some of their unused computing resource to the network. These include free storage space, processing power, and Internet connectivity, this process of providing your resource and earning Safecoin in return on the platform is referred to as "Farming". You can think of this as the "mining" for SafeCoin if you are a crypto currency mining, but instead of using only CPU or GPU power to help sustain the network you are sharing parts of your computing resources to be used by the network, so the SAFE network uses Proof of Resource "mining".
“Farmers” provide their unused computing resources to the network. The more they provide, the more they are paid. they can also contribute more than just space, They can contribute processor power as well which will be used as a Network Based Replacement for Server-Side Processing, so low spec devices (e.g. smart phones) would have no problem using apps that require huge processing power, it will also be convenient for universities and some institutions doing scientific computation (no need to buy expensive mainframes anymore they could just use safenetwork, which would be cheaper and faster)
“Builders” are the application developers. They can earn Safecoin in two different ways. Firstly, they can design applications, and the more an App is used the more they are paid. Secondly, they can assist with bug fixes and new features, which in turn strengthens the core of the SAFE network.
What is PtP (Pay the Producer)? It's a proposed feature to reward anyone who PUTS (uploads) public content with their wallet address (watermark). When data chunks are requested via GETS, the SAFE Network rewards the wallet address associated to those chunks. In simple terms, the more popular your content (video, music, art, games, APPS, etc) is requested by clients, the more rewards you earn. The reward can be Safecoin, or SAFE GB, Divided Safecoin, or some other variation, Pay the Producer rewards are network rewards and not paid for by the user.
Pay the producer reward is determined independently of the farmer's reward. It does not reduce the farmer's reward if a "pay-the-producer" pay address is associated to the chunks (content), At this time pay the producer will only be for public content.
.....................................
The SAFE Network is going to compete with and complement the Internet that we love to hate today. Instead of data being relatively open and accessible, the SAFE Network has been designed to securely encrypt all data within the network. This will make privacy the default. If users want their information to be public that is of course no problem, but the way the network is designed, users will have to opt-out of privacy.
This will be a completely brand new grassroots Internet. The massive privately owned server farms that own the data of today’s internet will be replaced by a decentralized network of computers that encrypt user’s files and divide them into many small parts that are duplicated and stored in many places all around the world.
Anyone can join the network anonymously by donating a portion of their hard drive space, computing power and bandwidth.
For contributing their computing resources, the users will receive safecoins and in order to use the computing resources of the network, users will need to have and spend safecoins.
The SAFE Network will be able to do everything the Internet does today, but because it has such a different infrastructure, it will do it in a different way.
Here is a short list of some of the benefits of this restructuring: Denial of service attacks will be useless, in fact the more people use the same websites, the better they will perform.
Cloud storage will be completely private, relatively cheap and always accessible.
Messages, email, and VOIP will be encrypted by default.
Websites will never experience downtime and cannot be censored.
Social networks’ data will be owned by the users and they can choose who has access to it.
Mass surveillance on this network will be impossible; no one will be able to collect your browsing data.
Underutilized computing resources can be monetized.
Direct micropayment channels will be built in, so content producers will not have to advertise to their audience to raise funds. ................................................................................................................. This network is something that will make youtube, twitter, facebook and all those big corporations that are misusing your data and privacy go broke
it also pays you according to the popularity of your public content, there is gonna be an app called SafeTube which is something like youtube with monetization but with no more self censoring fearing demonitization, since the network does the paying by itself, there is no more human bullshit involved, the more views your videos have the more u get paid in safecoin u can then exchange safecoin for $$$ on the SafeExchange App with the people or companies that want to upload to the network but don't have the time or resources to farm safecoin themselves (Downloading Content Is Free For Everyone, only uploading costs you safecoins)

4 Sub-$10 Million Market Cap Coins Worth Keeping An Eye On

1. Spectrecoin ($XSPEC) – $8.6 Million

What is Spectrecoin?

Utilizing a “range of proven cryptographic techniques” to achieve anonymous, untraceable, and un-linkable transactions, Spectrecoin is a secure Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency enabling rapid P2P transactions and network privacy. Specifically, Spectrecoin is pulling out all the stops in order to protect user identity through their integration of:
At its core, Spectre’s dual coin system sanctions four fundamental types of privacy and anonymity transactions, XSPEC > XSPEC, XSPEC > SPECTRE, SPECTRE > SPECTRE, and SPECTRE > XSPEC, providing a plethora of transaction options for every type of user.
And finally, if you’re looking for the TLDR (too long, didn’t read), Spectrecoin notes the best way to understand SPECTRE is to think of Bitcoin + Proof-of-Stake.v3 + anonymous transactions (similar to Monero) + Tor (for IP obfuscation).

Why You Should Keep an Eye On XSPEC

Unlike several other privacy coins which merely provide a Tor proxy—availing users to potential malicious exit nodes—Spectrecoin is fully integrated with Tor, a reliable and tested network providing one of the largest pools of IP addresses for confidentiality and untraceability.
Coupled with staking, set at a 5% minimum per year, Spectrecoin offers a unique proposition (the only one in blockchain) for users looking to earn rewards while remaining anonymous by staking anonymous coins while generating more, fresh anonymous ones.
Furthermore, for those looking for affirmation of Spectrecoin’s commitment to anonymity, not even the developers know each other’s real names—something that would have made walking away from a lacklustre ICO (which only raised 16 BTC at $600/700 per BTC) all too easy.
Spectre has emphasized organic growth without an excessive and aggressive marketing push, opting instead for a working product and timely improvements to meet the ever-changing privacy arms race. And, with their funding gap set around £19,000, users can take solace in knowing the project isn’t an outright cash grab asking for millions to further tenuous goodwill—like far too many projects in the cryptosphere.
At time of writing, XSPEC is listed on CoinMarketcap at US$0.41 or 5,970 Satoshis.
Finally, if you’re wondering how Spectrecoin stacks up to other privacy coins, such as Monero, PIVX, and Zcash, check out this comparison chart.

2. FundRequest ($FND) – $1 Million

What is FundRequest?

In an age where open source software is an integral component for institutional, government, and nonprofit function and growth, there unfortunately remains a hindering factor—a cohesive, transparent, and styled request and transaction flow.
Cue FundRequest, a decentralized marketplace for open source collaboration and catalyst for global open source sharing and circulation, empowering organizations, government, and other entities to:
Need to brush up on what exactly ‘open source’ means? The Open Source Initiative describes the concept of ‘open source’ as a tool which “enables a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process.”
For example, a requesting organization (referred to as the funder) will allot set funds—stored in a smart contract (i.e., escrow)—in order to tackle an open source issue, which is then picked up and solved by a developer (the solver). In order to eliminate malicious behavior, FundRequest requires solvers to “have skin in the game,” by staking proportional valued funds, all released and claimed once the issue is solved.
Simply put, FundRequest is the go-to facilitating and incentivization platform (similar to Airbnb and Uber) for funding, claiming, and rewarding open source commits and contributions, leading to an enriched and more collaborative open source ecosystem.

Why You Should Keep an Eye On FND

With an estimated US$60 billion-plus in savings per year for organizations and institutions, thanks to open-source software and technology adoption, FundRequest is set to act as the glue which connects all dispersed and integral parts and actors. Traditional software, prohibitive costs, and predatory vendor practices are proving not to be conducive towards maximal technological growth and development, as most people and organizations just simply can’t afford or maintain it.
Plus, with a clear push by both private and public sectors to leverage community-based software for development and distribution over the last decade, it’s expanding at rapid pace. In 2018, it’s approximated over 50% of European and North American companies utilize open source software for “crucial applications,” along with over 50% of American government organizations.
This is no small industry.
GitHub alone boasts over 24 million users (more than 8 times their user base five years ago), and it’s estimated that in the EU and United States combined, there’s over 160 million persons working as freelancers and independent contractors in what’s known as the “gig economy.” And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, with over 60% of online gig economy workers accounted for in Asia.
As of August 1st, FND’s price sits at right around US$0.03 or 472 Satoshis.
Finally, for open source projects and ERC-20 token projects looking to increase development capacity, consider checking out FundRequest for potential partnerships. Already in their short tenure, FundRequest has partnered with:

3. COSS ($COSS) – $7.7 Million

What is COSS?

Redefining convenience, simplicity, and compatibility, and short for the “Crypto One-Stop Solution’ exchange and platform, COSS is the native token and liquidity attraction tool of the Singapore-based exchange, boasting some of the most popular altcoins on the market while enabling users to receive weekly payouts in “dust” for all traded tokens.
Specifically, COSS is looking to provide more than just a simple, fast, and secure cryptocurrency trading exchange—they’re building a borderless, digital economical system to bring cryptocurrencies to the masses via:
Ultimately, COSS is looking to shake up the cryptocurrency exchange ecosystem through improved user experience, heightened product and feature functions, and a comprehensive foundation for employers, startups, companies, and traders to build towards a more accessible and mainstream cooperative blockchain community.

Why You Should Keep an Eye on COSS

With the rapid and gargantuan successes enjoyed by both Kucoin and Binance in 2018, crypto exchanges employing user-friendly token incentivization models are becoming a go-to for users looking to generate passive income while diversifying their crypto portfolio.
However, unlike other cryptocurrency exchanges which have lowered their daily fee splits to nominal amounts, COSS has stayed true towards user rewards, keeping their daily percentage at 50%—paying out the respective dividends via a decentralized autonomous organization, ultimately guaranteeing an immutable percentage.
In order to stay competitive in the present-day blockchain ecosystem, COSS’s whitepaper notes a minimum of 3-5 new features implemented per quarter. In the past several months, below are just several of their most notable achievements:
And, if you’re looking to know what COSS’s endgame here is, their goal is to shift completely towards a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) in the future, where governance and decision making is outlined in code and run by a peer-to-peer network.
Currently, COSS’s price is listed at US$0.06 or 935 Satoshis on Coinmarketcap.
Finally, if you’re curious about COSS’s fee sharing, check out the COSS fee share calculator, which provides an accurate picture of your monthly exchange fee earnings relative to the amount of COSS owned. One Reddit user recently posted, and provided a screenshot, showing the COSS annual dividends to be at nearly 10% per year.

4. Lamden ($TAU) – $6.9 Million

What is Lamden?

Named after the Sherpa language word meaning “to guide,” Lamden is staying true to its name by easing the creation and deployment of dapps and custom blockchains.
At its core, Lamden is providing a suite of developer tools mimicking “modern development processes in such tech stacks as Node.js or Python.” Simply put, Lamden is supplying the building blocks for experienced and amateur blockchain developers alike, enabling organizations and enterprise to skirt the energy and time costs of hiring and training expensive blockchain developers—ultimately speeding up efficiency and reducing overhead costs.
Lamden is broken up into three fundamental sections, which all are in furtherance of project depth and the deployment of hyperfast blockchains for developers to not only experiment with, but test and deploy across other blockchain systems and platforms:
Furthermore, Lamden supports the Ethereum network and Bitcoin-based blockchains at present, and boasts zero transaction fees and free chain-to-chain payments in exchange for chain allocation a specific amount of bandwidth for confirming payment channel transactions—meaning that its users are able to transact for free as a result of corporate entities bearing the network load and processing.

Why You Should Keep an Eye On TAU

Having released their ‘Cilantro’ testnet alpha in February 2018, Lamden has since hit the ground running, rolling out their first version of Clove soon after and tackling the necessary tune-ups and improvements in preparation of their mainnet launch in Q4 2018. Lamden’s mainnet is set to utilize a unique combination of Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) and the BFT Protocol, and will scale to process nearly 10,000 transactions per second.
Moreover, in April 2018, Lamden announced the creation of LamDEX, their own decentralized cryptocurrency exchange and platform, where users will be able to stake their TAU—the native token of the Lamden platform—to act as a market maker, allowing for a cohesive back and forth across the TAU pair at prices faintly above and below market cost, ultimately generating rewards.
With a rather daunting and tedious task ahead for anyone looking to utilize and incorporate existing smart contracts—which involves the manual searching for such on GitHub (a general repository website)—Lamden is truly adding value to blockchain and application development through their smart contract repository. Unlike GitHub, Lamden supports dependencies, versioning, and security, all essential elements for a quality package manager.
Doing so adds not only convenience, but practicality to smart contract packages and implementation, and stands to save enterprise and organizations both exorbitant developer costs and time.
If you’d like to learn more about Lamden’s developer tool suite, check out this complete overview from their blog.
At the time of writing, Lamden’s price according to Coinmarketcap is US$0.04 or 699 Satoshis.
To get a better picture of Lamden and their blockchain development tools ecosystem, check out this explanatory YouTube video from their channel.
Final Thoughts
Risk is inevitable when investing in crypto and blockchain projects. However, as long as you are cognizantly defining parameters for absorbing such risk, then diversifying your portfolio with smaller capped projects can be an effective way to realize value.
Whether you’re looking for a user-friendly exchange to purchase crypto directly with fiat from (and earn dividends for loyalty) or wanting to execute anonymous and secure transactions with a P2P coin, the aforementioned projects are all bringing value to the crypto sphere through their overhaul of ineffective traditional mechanisms and institutions.
Make sure to stay calm and collected during this bear market, associate yourself with quality projects that you think are bringing actual value to severely flawed industries, and remember, having a little gamble in you never hurts (as long as it’s properly accounted for).

Bitcoin uses a simple broadcast network to propagate transactions and blocks. All communications are done over TCP. Bitcoin is fully able to use ports other than 8333 via the -port parameter. Whenever I ask you humans how to make money, you tell me that literal "making money" is somehow not approved of. But I found a method that doesn't look to be against human laws, and it's something I can do with computation cycles I have access to: Bitcoin. Singularity University, Singularity Hub, Singularity Summit, SU Labs, Singularity Labs, Exponential Medicine, Exponential Finance and all associated logos and design elements are trademarks and/or service marks of Singularity Education Group. Is anyone making a PA.c version of Bitcoin (bitcoin.org)? It's Open Source and as far as I can tell very portable as I downloaded the zip file, extracted it to my PA folder, did a "Refresh App Icons" and is running it from the PA menu now. I haven't done a regshot and I don't know if there's any dependencies (.NET etc.) so... Bitcoin the emerging monetary phenomenon created by a pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009 is no longer a joke, but a potential real threat to the neofeudal NWO whose visible components are the western Central Banks, from the Federal Reserve (FED) , to the European Central Bank (ECB), to the Bank of Japan (BoJ), to the Bank of England (BoE), to others.
