Binance in Discussions with Facebook Over Libra Coin

Binance in Discussions with Facebook Over Libra Coin


According to CoinTelegraph, one of the world’s largest crypto exchanges,

Binance, is in “official” talks with Facebook regarding the latter’s new Libra coin. The exchange’s strategy officer, Gin Chao, told BlockTV yesterday that the company is “very excited” about the Libra project. What we know so far, according to Chao, is that the talks “have largely focused on dealing with infrastructure.”

Binance and Libra Coin

While the pair’s discussions are in the early stages, it seems Binance is not holding back its desire to work with Libra “as much as [it] can.”“I think the potential that libra can have, not just on mass adoption but what it means to payments and forcing regulators’ hands to catch up a bit, is all good news.” In a separate interview, the strategist gave more details on the likelihood of Facebook’s Libra listing on Binance: “It wouldn’t just be in [Facebook’s] interest to list their coin on our exchange. It would also be in their interest to list on other exchanges as well and that’s probably going to happen. So if they decide to go on a public chain, and they get the sort of adoption that they could get, we would probably want to list them.” And further, he said that Binance would be enthusiastic about becoming a validator node on the Libra network.

Facebook’s Libra Coin

Facebook announced its new cryptocurrency called Libra last week. Rumors about its existence were rife for over a year, however. According to the Whitepaper, the objective of the coin is simple; users can send money via the internet all over the world faster and with lower fees than standard banking. It also aims to incorporate the 1.7 billion people around the world who don’t have a bank account or a line of credit.

Libra differs in several ways to traditional cryptocurrencies. One of the most interesting facts of Facebook’s currency is that it is more “stable” than regular cryptos. Facebook sought to create a coin that could facilitate every-day online consumer transactions and has done this by “backing all its issued digital currency by a reserve.”

According to Digitaltrends: “Founding Members are required to pool money into the reserve, with the prospect of a return on their investment via dividends from low-yield investment of the reserve’s assets.” With Libra coin only announced, it’s official launch is not expected until sometime in the first half of 2020.

Dr Craig S Wright appears in US federal court testifies he is Satoshi Nakamoto

Dr. Craig S. Wright appears in US federal court, testifies he is Satoshi Nakamoto

Dr. Craig S. Wright, the chief scientist for nChain and the man better known as Satoshi Nakamoto,

was in U.S. federal court in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he’s involved in a lawsuit stemming from the time he worked with Dave Kleiman on what would ultimately become Bitcoin. The lawsuit was filed by Ira Kleiman on behalf of the estate of Dave Kleiman. As Friday’s activities began, the morning deposition was closed to the public, but the court opened its doors in the afternoon for an evidentiary hearing about a discovery dispute about Ira Kleiman’s request that Wright provide a list of “public addresses” for Bitcoin that Wright held as of December 31, 2013.

Wright was more than willing to take the stand in an effort to answer many questions that have stuck with the entire Bitcoin ecosystem over the years. There really was no confusion in the industry on Wright being Satoshi; however, those protesting that he’s not, including groups involved in scams of some sort, were only doing so to confuse mainstream media, governments and the industry as a whole. It was a historic day for Bitcoin. On Friday, Wright asserted, under oath, that he was Satoshi Nakamoto. This didn’t receive any objection from Kleiman’s attorneys, nor were there any objections when Wright acknowledged that he wrote the Bitcoin whitepaper. In fact, in his later cross-examination of Wright, Kleiman’s attorney referred to Wright as inventor of Bitcoin.

In a very emotional part of the testimony, Wright explained that he kept his Satoshi Nakamoto identity under wraps for several reasons, not the least of which was how Bitcoin quickly became used for darknet marketplaces such as Silk Road and Hydra, which enabled selling of addictive hard drugs, child pornography, and other serious illegal activities. This, he asserted, made him ashamed of what he had created, as it wasn’t the reason for which Bitcoin had been intended (it was intended to create an honest money system). He was distraught over this and felt his work had failed, and this also led him to stop being a pastor and attending church. Wright added that he was willing to accept the chance he could never access the Bitcoin he had mined from 2009 to 2010 because spending them would have verified his identity as Satoshi, and also because (at the time) he wanted to disassociate himself from Bitcoin. He went so far as to say that he wanted to destroy the drive that would have allowed him to access the Bitcoin he mined (for his company) between January 2009 and August 2010, but it was Dave Kleiman who convinced him not to do so.

On the stand, Wright continued that the original Bitcoin did not use the concept of public addresses as people perceive them today; instead, it relied on public-private pairs, with the private keys needed to spend the coins. Today, people incorrectly perceive a public address similar to a bank account number, where coin holders accumulate Bitcoin and then spend from that address. The original Bitcoin system created by Wright was never meant to incorporate a system of reusable public addresses where people can see how much Bitcoin is accumulating in a single public address that is re-used; instead, a new key pair (and thus a new address) was intended to be created for every transaction in order to provide users a new privacy model. Wright testified that this is explained in the Bitcoin white paper (section 10, Privacy). 

After Wright withdrew from the Bitcoin project, the public address on the Bitcoin ledger became incorrectly misunderstood and then misused by developers in what would become known as the Bitcoin Core (BTC) project. Thus, at the time Wright was mining Bitcoin for his company in 2009 and 2010 and under Wright’s original Bitcoin design, there was no need to keep the public addresses as people understand them now; instead, at the time, the seed or private keys were all that would be needed or stored.

Wright was requested to provide the public Bitcoin addresses that reportedly hold a significant amount of assets—possibly reaching into the billions of dollars. He testified in court that he’s more than willing to turn over the information if he could, but that the information necessary to generate the list of public addresses is locked in an encrypted file, with multiple keys protecting different layers of the file. At earliest, the first layers of the encrypted file cannot be opened until at least January 2020. Wright explained that the encrypted file contains the relevant seed and his proprietary algorithm that can generate the private keys for Bitcoin mined by his company in 2009 and 2010, which would allow him to generate the associated public keys and public addresses that most crypto fans are used to seeing today.

If he’s able to gain access to the private keys and, subsequently, the Bitcoin controlled by such private keys, Wright does not himself want it. The beneficiaries of the trust are his family members (wife and children). He said under oath that he and his wife have agreed to donate the vast majority of the money to charity, including to a program to provide education to the poorest 1 billion people in the world, as part of his efforts to remedy the wrongs committed by darknet marketplaces that misused the Bitcoin system he invented.

Kleiman’s lawyer cross-examined Wright at length, focusing on supposed inconsistencies in documents related to the legal trusts formed by Wright to protect assets. Wright explained a number of times that his company servers had been hacked or compromised by former staff who sought to force his Australian companies into liquidation.

Wright concluded his testimony yesterday, but there is still a lot left to cover in the case. The evidentiary hearing on the discovery issue is expected to resume again, but not until August. This is only to decide a limited issue in the case (whether Wright can or cannot provide the list of public addresses requested by Kleiman). The full issues in the case will not be decided until other proceedings, and ultimately trial in March 2020.

IOTA Price Prediction June 2019 Bullish Trends And Experts Take

IOTA Price Prediction June 2019 — Bullish Trends And Experts Take

Basil has three years of freelance experience writing on disruptive technologies.

He focuses on breaking news and education pieces; helping to spread the gospel of Blockchain. He hopes to have his own blockchain company one day; helping the world through its innovative ledger technology.[updated June 28, 2019] IOTA was developed by a German team and created to support the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, using an innovative blockchain system called “tangle”. It was created to enhance communications, transactions, and payments between machines (i.e. M2M interaction).

Considering the speed with which artificial intelligence is gaining global adoption, IOTA is and was ahead of its time when it was conceived. Part of IOTA’s unique features is that it is one of the few altcoins that cannot be mined, has no blocks, and has no chains. It comes with infinite scalability and very fast transaction times, which give it an advantage over the Bitcoin blockchain, for instance. Still, IOTA has been held to the same whims as the rest of the cryptomarkets; a big swing up in 2017 and early 2018 and then a big fall down for the last four months. The team continues to add partners and use cases which make IOTA a popular headline on our site and others. And there are a lot of bullish technologists that see IOTA’s tech as superior to many others on the market.

Still, for IOTA’s price to truly recover from its 2018 highs—where it started around $3.61 and now trades for just over $.30—more time is needed. The partnerships need to coalesce, and the chain itself needs to showcase its ease and speed through millions of transactions. With IOTA still tied to Bitcoin, and partnerships in their nascent stage, IOTA’s price is not likely to have an upswing on its own in 2019. Beyond this year, it could make the kind of changes to the world of logistics and IoT processes that it purports to be able to do. But that’s looking down the road. In 2019 with IOTA set to launch its first working product we can expect to see the price of MIOTA gain substantially as more partnerships are formed and the technology is adopted by more organizations.

Experts’ Opinion On Why IOTA Will Rise

In 2017, almost all digital currencies, including IOTA, experienced significant gains in a short period. For instance, IOTA provided a 12500% return on investment in less than six months. However, the question now on everyone’s mind is what the future holds for IOTA price. Let’s look at what experts are saying regarding the coin’s future price to help answer this question. There are some industry experts whose opinions can have a significant impact on the price of cryptocurrencies. One of these industry experts is John McAfee, who has given several views on many cryptocurrencies. Through a tweet, MacAfee stated that IOTA would experience growth, but this will be slow, about 10% increase every year. Although this may seem like a meager digit, it still shows that the coin’s price will continue to rise. 

Tim Falk, an expert writer for, stated that the Internet of Things had shown potential for huge growth in the future. For instance, Google acquired Nest, a smart-phone automation company for $3.2 billion in 2014. This acquisition shows that Google expects the IoT industry to boom soon, and since IOTA is based on this technology, it may experience increased adoption, leading to an increase in the coin’s price. Additionally, the social crypto platform predicts that MIOTA is set to hit $5 shortly. According to this source, the prediction is based on factors such as the strength of the developer team, technical prospects, and continuous development. As such, the coin’s price will continue to rise. Other factors driving the price of IOTA include;

Digital CarPass Is Set To Launch In Q1 2019

The first working product of the collaboration between IOTA and Volkswagen is set to be released by June of this year for public use. Digital CarPass is a practical application of the IOTA technology for vehicle telematics data. The new product will allow a vehicle to tell its story like where it went and how it was treated. Also, it will offer tamper-proof mileage history and protect against odometer fraud in the case of second-hand vehicles. Simply put, the Digital CarPass will act as a report-sheet for cars on the distributed ledger to ensure data recorded like mileage is accurate.

According to Benjamin Sinram who is the head of the blockchain at Volkswagen, the car manufacturer is exploring distributed ledger technology and cryptocurrencies in unison with teams like IOTA and Energy Web Foundation. He added that the vision of Volkswagen is to focus on autonomous cars that will carry out transactions on behalf of their owners using cryptocurrency wallets. “We want to enable our autonomous cars to (provide) services for you and pay autonomously for these services with their own money.” According to Sinram the product will be launching before the end of Q1 and given that this is huge for the car industry we can expect a lot of positive buzz surrounding IOTA, and it should reflect on its price.

IOTA Prepares for the Bull Market

During bearish periods, crypto experts advise projects to build the necessary infrastructure to really make their product applicable. And this is what IOTA and its team are doing. At the moment, the IOTA community is working hard in order to have different products launched. To start, Trinity Wallet is being used and touted by IOTA enthusiasts. The Trinity Wallet works to establish a go-to and secure wallet for holding coins; an easy on-ramp for future holders to get into IOTA investing. This is a wallet addition to the already established method of storing IOTA on the Ledger wallet, which you can find more information about here.

The second important project that is being developed is a new digital ID. The world is moving into digitizing everything, including personal information. IOTA’s team is working in an important digital ID solution that will use its “tangle” technology. Although there is no official timeline for this project, developers are implementing Verifiable Claims Protocols to improve their services.

The ID project that is being developed is just one of the several projects that IOTA has signed with different car manufacturers. There are several other projects in the works involving IOTA. For example, some countries such as Sweden and Netherlands are working with IOTA to improve different administrative processes. The Swedish Central Bank (Riksbank), for instance, wants to launch the digital version of the Swedish Krona. The e-Krona will be based on IOTA and might be launched in 2019.

Additionally, two companies in the Netherlands, ICTU and XURUX, are investing in a project to verify legal documents within the ‘IOTA Blockchain.’ Projects like this boost IOTA’s standing as one of the more “practical” and “applicable” crypto assets. Its technology has shown potential benefits for these different sectors, and the bear market isn’t stopping IOTA from creating value.


In another recent move worth mentioning, ENGIE Lab Crigen has partnered with IOTA Foundation. The two companies will work on a blockchain based smart energy ecosystem. In the partnership, ENGIE will use its computer and artificial science to enhance IOTA tangle. According to an official blog post, the team will learn from each other through experimentations.

The IOTA blogpost further revealed that the two firms had signed an agreement to establish a cooperation deal between them. They will initiate smart energy systems made of two fundamental tools. The first, to manage server-based blockchain infrastructure and creation of cloud base systems. The other, focus on improving smart contracts. Per the announcement, the company is primarily targeting the Asian market and intends to roll out the services before next year. ENGIE will further extend its services to southern Europe before May 2019. While making the announcement, Yves Le Gelard, ENGIEs vice president, expressed his delight by saying that:

“We are excited to be part of this program, which will make it possible for many actors to access the blockchain technology. It is a perfect example to show how ENGIE is digitally transforming the society,” In the announcement post, Phillippe Calvez, a Lab Research Manager, commented that: “Most proofs-of-concept and activities have already been initiated in the lab and thus we look forward to collaborate with larger international projects. The partnership will enlighten more people on the benefits of using innovative DLT technologies.”

Technical Analysis on IOTA Price

The analyst says the Internet of things is the future of the next few years and IOTA is the leader in this sphere. EXCAVO believes in this project, which is moving in the triangle with huge potential, and it’s still in the zone of accumulation. The analyst advices that investors should buy in deep and sell in high.

Technical analysis:
. Miota/Bitcoin is in a range-bound, and the beginning of uptrend is expected. The price is below the 21-Day WEMA, which acts as a dynamic resistance. . The RSI is at 36. . While the RSI downtrend and the price downtrend in the daily chart are not broken, the bearish wave in price would continue.

ForecastCity suggests:
There is a possibility of temporary retracement to suggested support zone (0.00004600 to 0.00004025). If so, traders can set orders based on Price Action and expect to reach short-term targets.

Beginning of entry zone (0.00004600)
Ending of entry zone (0.00004025)

Entry signal:
Signal to enter the market occurs when the price comes to “Buy zone” then forms one of the reversal patterns, whether “Bullish Engulfing”, “Hammer” or “Valley” in other words, NO entry signal when the price comes to the zone BUT after any of the reversal patterns is formed in the zone. Here is a prediction based on trend lines established over the last 2 years along with a pitched fib channel.  The analyst believes with Bitcoin facing a potential breakout, I plan on exiting MOST of my holdings here. Depending on the market volatility and BTC’s price movement, I will hold off on re-entering until establishing, something the analyst would suggest doing in the case of most altcoins during BTC’s move.

Vechain the new Ethereum killer? Surpasses Ethereum in blockchain activity

Vechain the new Ethereum killer? Surpasses Ethereum in blockchain activity


Vechain’s new partnership with Walmart has made headlines.

Vechain not only has become an investors favorite recently but investors are actually saying Vechain might overtake Ethereum with the new partnership. On 25th June, Vechain’s founder and CEO, Sunny Liu, announced on Twitter that Vechain will be providing its enterprise blockchain to Walmart China via PwC for tracking of the food supply chain. The news immediately propelled up the price of Vechain by 30%.

That’s not all, three days after the announcement blockchain activity of Vechain has also tripled and surpassed that of Ethereum. Blockchain activity is defined as any activity taking place on a blockchain – that includes transactions, creation of new address, movement of funds, execution of smart contracts, etc. Blockchain activity is a healthy indicator of a good project. High blockchain activity means that more people are engaging with the blockchain. Vechain has fallen since it’s 30% rise and is trading at $0.008 with a market capitalization of $440 million.

What is An STO and How It Works?

What is An STO and How It Works?

STO is the abbreviation of security token offering.

It is similar to ICO which uses the coin or token as an asset in the investment. There is a difference though. The security token signifies the ownership information of assets like funds, real estate, bonds, and stocks. In the STO, the investment product is comprehensive with the physical assets like company or property, or everything else. Meanwhile, the security token represents the ownership information. The data is within the blockchain. In the conventional investment method, your ownership information will be recorded on physical documents or the soft copy in PDF. Meanwhile, the STO conducts the same process but your information is recorded on a blockchain and converted into a token.

The coin in STO may not be used for the environment or investment. It focuses on the investment contract supervised by law. STO is also different from IPO. The most significant difference is that STO issues the tokens on the blockchain. Meanwhile, IPO issues the certificates in conventional markets. Being involved in the STOs can be difficult because these are regulated depending on the jurisdiction of the party. For instance, the SEC – Securities and Exchange Commission really emphasizes the importance of STO’s regulations. According to SEC, ICO rating will be categorized as a security if it is prevalent with investment contract understanding. Security tokens have special characteristics. We could define them as a specific investment like a share or debt instrument.

Any countries have banned STO. You won’t be seeing any STORY in these countries: India, Bolivia, China, Vietnam, South Korea, Algeria, Namibia, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Lebanon, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, and Nepal. If your countries are not on the list, that does not merely mean that STO is allowed. Perhaps, your governments are still weighing to issue the regulations. The real-world asset is backing the security token. As we know about the utility token, it can be daunting to assess the value of the token although we’ve seen their good ICO rating on the ICO list. But with the security token, you will have peace of mind since it is backed with the physical asset. It is a lot easier to confirm the token value. STO is much cheaper compared to the traditional IPO. The strongest reason is that because there is no middleman.

Meanwhile, the smart contracts of security token will also minimize the connection to lawyers. That means the blockchain technology can help you to alter the paperwork. The liquidity of a security token is also great. No matter where you are, you will be able to trade 24/7. STOs are legal. With the increasing number of investors, the volatility can go away. But there will always be challenges lurking in the shadows. Perhaps, the most challenging aspect of STO is the changes in regulation. The increased regulation can revolve around ownership tracking, exchange approvals, and so on. The developer of the STO should be aware of the securities laws to comply. The regulations in some countries might also limit folks to invest in STO. If you are interested in it, make sure you do your research before proceeding.

The Smart Interactive Node and the Find the Hash integration

The Smart Interactive Node and the Find the Hash integration

Arian is the blockchain of the Arian Coin cryptocurrency, powered by the Proof of Achievement protocol, which has allowed the creation of its Smart Interactive Node and the integration of the Find the Hash videogame to mine arians. 

Arian gathers all the conditions to be an innovative blockchain, all this thanks to its Proof of Achievement protocol and its main feature, the human-machine symbiosis. This allows it to implement different tools for its mining process to power up any activity that a miner performs through a simple device. These basic conditions of the Arian blockchain are what allowed the creation of its Interactive Node, with some benefits like the easiness to download, no need for sophisticated equipment or hardware, nor expertise in the cryptocurrency mining subject. This is a node that works by only downloading it onto a conventional computer, which doesn’t require high energy consumption either.

The main objective of Arian Coin is to keep intact the fact of being a crypto-asset accessible for everyone. In order to achieve this, its mining protocol should be very innovative and accessible, as it is indeed, but the tools it uses should be likewise attractive and very easy to use. It’s precisely the innovative conditions of the Proof of Achievement (PoAch) protocol, which supports the Arian blockchain and is the result of an excellent fusion between the PoW and the PoP, what led the developers to create Find the Hash, a videogame that allows the user to mine arians while participating in a rapid race.

As the Arian Interactive Node was designed to preserve the features of the blockchain, and thus its protocol, developing the right mining instrument was a challenge for the Arian Coin developers. This element would have to allow the performance of smart mining with the lowest energy consumption possible, the least equipment investment, and most importantly, the maximum exploitation of the interaction between users and their device.  A perfect human-machine symbiosis. Each of the steps in the development of Arian from the implementation of its protocol to the creation of its Smart Interactive Node have allowed the integration of a game like Find the Hash to be possible. A protocol like PoAch unlocks a great variety of possibilities for the integration for the Node in multiple activities through the use of a device linked to the network.

Find the Hash fits easily into the Arian Interactive Node, as mining time adjusts according to the autonomous miner’s ability with a maximum time frame of 3 minutes to close the block, while others adjust mining time according to the number of nodes in the blockchain. This allows the participation in a game—where the player’s ability to reach a goal is the objective—to be integrated perfectly with the characteristics of a miner in the Arian Node. Additionally, a videogame like Find the Hash fulfills the other features of the PoAch perfectly: interactions between users and their device, minimum energetic consumption and no need for sophisticated equipment.

A unique blockchain and protocol, a Smart Interactive Node accessible from any device and a very attractive tool for its mining, these features make Arian Coin one of the most innovative crypto-assets in the digital ecosystem. Each of the steps in the development of Arian from the implementation of its protocol to the creation of its Smart Interactive Node have allowed the integration of a game like Find the Hash to be possible.

Libra a Cyberpunk Nightmare in the Midst of Crypto Spring

Libra, a Cyberpunk Nightmare in the Midst of Crypto Spring

With crypto winter finally over, I’ve turned my heart to the green shoots of spring. But my thoughts are not warm in this first article in the Dreams of Crypto Spring series. I break down the most talked about digital currency in history, Facebook’s Libra, and the dark shadow it casts over the future.


Facebook finally took the wraps off their long-awaited digital currency platform, called Libra.

They released a whitepaper, a testnet and the breakdown of their digital wallet Calibra. The announcement generated big buzz in the crypto community and in the mainstream press, with reporters rushing to cover the details. Nearly every luminary in the crypto community chimed in right after the announcement. The initial reactions were cautiously optimistic. Most folks, including me, felt it was bullish for crypto even if Libra has absolutely nothing to do with open, permissionless cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Radix, Monero, Zcash and Bitcoin. Almost across the board people felt Libra would raise crypto awareness, get regular people (aka normies) socialized to using stateless money and upgrade the awful user experience.

Lawmakers reacted as they usually do to new technologies they don’t understand, with fear. Rep Maxine Waters, Chairperson of the House Financial Services Committee, called on Facebook to halt development. Governments want to make damn sure that no tech startup dares threaten their power to debase currency at will. Even crypto focused lawyers rang in, questioning its legality. But now that the knee-jerk reactions are in, more detailed and nuanced analysis is starting to appear. At first, I thought I might stay above the fray. With everyone commenting, what else was there to say? There was plenty of press out there. I was too late. But the more I dug into the write-ups and hot-takes, the more I realized how many folks were missing the real threats and possibilities of this big announcement. People had the tech details down but they missed the grand picture.

And make no mistake, love it or hate it, Libra is a big announcement. A few years ago the idea that a major corporation would release a cryptocurrency was laughable, much less a consortium of gigantic multinationals releasing one, including stalwarts of the old world financial system like Visa and MasterCard. But it’s bigger than that. It’s a turning point in monetary history. It’s an ELE, an Extinction Level Event for the old financial world order. When historians look back they may just point to this moment as the catalyst. But what does the future look like? How does it all play out?

Are we racing towards a financial renaissance or a cyberpunk nightmare of oligarchical mega-corporations ripped from the pages of William Gibson? To find out, I do what I do always do, dive in head first and start reading and listening. I connected with people all over the community, asked my patrons to send me the best articles they could find, and I read Facebook’s whitepaper and the corporate propaganda (aka marketing). What did I find? Come with me as I show you a brave new world of digital currencies and an all-out war between the titans of industry and the massive nation-states of the modern world.

Eyes Wide Shut and Empire of Tomorrow

To start with, while I’m not afraid to eviscerate what I despise about Libra, I absolutely refuse to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Just because I hate many aspects of this platform, doesn’t mean there’s not a lot to love. And there’s a lot the crypto community can learn by paying close attention to what Facebook did here even if this all plays out like a bad episode of Mr. Robot and E-Corp brought to life.

They delivered on three of the five keys to crypto evolution, namely scale, distribution and the killer app. That alone might be enough to conquer the known world. They also added a few more innovations pulled from the best of the best projects out there.We’ll start with the user experience. Let’s face it, the user experience in crypto is utterly hideous. Crypto apps are almost universally ugly and impossible to use for the average person. They’re even hard to use for engineers. Early versions of Netscape were better looking.

Crypto apps will never work like this in the future:

You go to an exchange, sign up, get logged in, verify your account, get KYCed, set up two factor authentication, wire in fiat money, buy some crypto, download a wallet, and then load up a wallet just so you can download and use a decentralized version of Instagram to look at cat pictures.

It just cannot work that way for regular people. Try getting your mom into crypto. If you can do it in less than two weeks you’re a genius. This was never the path to global user adoption. Without a better UX, crypto won’t even get out of the gate. In 2017, I pointed to WeChat and its ubiquitous mobile messaging platform as the interface of the future. A lot of big crypto project builders came to the same conclusion. We saw Status raise $100 million. Telegram raised a whopping $1.7 billion privately to build their next generation blockchain, messaging and mobile currency platform. Kik saw the same vision of a mobile peer to peer money and chat app.

But Facebook beat them to the punch with tremendous global reach, deep pockets and a consortium of corporate heavyweights who signed on as founding members of the Association, including Visa, MasterCard, Stripe, Paypal, Lyft, Ebay, Uber, Vodaphone, not to mention VC titans like Andreessen Horowitz. Just as Amazon had the power to make their Kindle ebook reader a platform with their combination of money, tech savvy and connection to book sellers big and small, Facebook and the masters of the financial and tech world have the power to create a platform and push it into the hands of billions.

And Facebook has interfaces down cold. They know how to build a compulsively clickable social media platform and their WhatsApp chat client is one of the most widely used in the world, as is Instagram, the standard social media app for the me generation. Facebook’s Calibra wallet will easily integrate into WhatsApp, Messenger and Facebook itself. It already looks super simple and easy to use, with the wallet sporting a clean and beautiful UI. Every single project in crypto should go out right now and spend some of their millions of dollars in ICO money on hiring a team of brilliant UI/UX developers. Otherwise it’s an extinction level event for your platform. If it’s not easy to use, it’s DOA.

Killer app solved.

Let’s move on to scale, business model and the power games of multinational corporations. A number of writers have pointed out that Libra’s consensus system looks a lot like Proof of Stake, but it’s more accurate to say it functions like Delegated Proof of Stake, popularized by EOS and other platforms. It’s a Byzantine Fault Tolerant system based on HotStuff, a consensus system created by researchers at VMware, Cornell and UNC Chapel Hill. Basically they have a bunch of giant validator nodes that process transactions on the network, while risking their own money if they try to cheat the system.

Delegated Proof of Stake is one of the fastest consensus systems in action today, scaling to thousands of transactions per second, versus the paltry 7 of Bitcoin and 15 of Ethereum. Of course, those big company Association members, like Visa and Mastercard, all paid $10 million dollars for the privilege of functioning as validators on the network.

Why would they do that?

Because they’re going to make a lot of money. And that is where the business plan comes into clear focus. Facebook built a killer business model for their validators. Before any of them develop a single app for the ecosystem they will rake in money hand over fist. Unlike other cryptocurrencies with a fixed money supply that’s slowly released over time, Libra’s currency gets created or destroyed as money comes into the system. If you exchange $50 for Libra, the equivalent amount of Libra coins are minted. If you take money out of the system, the money gets destroyed.

A number of writers pointed out the similarity to the IMF’s SDR (Special Drawing Rights) system but it’s better than SDR and goes a lot further. In fact, it’s borderline genius. Here’s how it works. Libra is backed by a reserve of fiat money. That will work out to a beautiful ROI for the validators. Fiat money will flow in from all over the world as people change it out for Zuckbucks. The validators could hold that money, invest it, swap it and trade it. If they hold it in the traditional banking system the interest alone is enough to make their original $10 million dollars look like chump change.

In other words, the validators keep the interest and you get nothing.

Your Internet funny money won’t increase in value like many other cryptos, so you won’t get interest and you won’t get new value. That’s because the Libra coin is designed to stay stable. It won’t swing wildly like Bitcoin and the other deflationary coins because it’s pegged to a basket of currencies, like the Yen, Dollar, Euro and Pound, which means it inherits the inflationary monetary policy of central banks. And that’s just the beginning. This isn’t just a blockchain with some stable money. In fact, it’s not even a blockchain at all despite them using the term over and over in the whitepaper. It’s a post-blockchain, federated database.

According to the paper:

“The Libra Blockchain is a cryptographically authenticated database maintained using the Libra protocol. The database stores a ledger of programmable resources, such as Libra coins. A resource adheres to custom rules specified by its declaring module, which is also stored in the database.”

It also has its own smart contract language, called Move, that looks strong and is designed to avoid the security issues of earlier smart contract systems. Even the first implementation is a good choice, written in Rust because Rust doesn’t face as many security problems as other languages due to its

emphasis on safe code.

“With “safe code,” objects are managed by the programming language from the beginning to end. The developer doesn’t do any pointer arithmetic or manage memory, as can be necessary in C or C++ programs.”

But blockchain or no blockchain and new smart contract language or none, what Facebook built is a complete platform and that is what matters most and what the crypto community is missing as they build the future piecemeal. Platform is the key word here. It all functions in perfect harmony together like a well rehearsed orchestra. Beyond pulling in huge swaths of fiat money to earn interest, the validators will develop apps and programs to run on the system, as well as goods and services. In other words, it’s a place to buy and sell things. That makes it a post-blockchain stablecoin, safe smart contract programmable resource manager, messaging system, and ecommerce platform in one.

Ecommerce is the essential component in the mix. Without that, all you have is monopoly money but nowhere to spend it, which is why most coins remain the darling of speculators but almost nobody buys coffee or Playstations with crypto. If crypto projects want to gain real traction and compete with this mega-platform they need to wise up and build a real business model like what Facebook has done here. It’s not enough to make money out of thin air if you have nowhere to spend it. You need an interface, governance, money and things to buy and sell all rolled into one epic ecosystem.

The Return of the Dutch East Indies Company

And that brings us to one of the most interesting side effects of the Libra coin. With a complete ecosystem and ability to drive rapid adoption across Facebook’s billions of users, it will be the first platform to really challenge the sovereignty of state sponsored money, the traditional banking system and the power of the state to print and distribute money. Who’s not in the coalition is just as interesting as who’s in it. No banks. Not one. It’ll be interesting to know if any banks have back end deals with the Association. Its members will be storing a lot of money and banks will want to know the origin of that cash flow.

The choice to peg Libra to a basket of currencies is fascinating as well. By pegging it to a flurry of other currencies they’ve started the planet down the path of ditching the dollar as the default world currency. The flip side to this argument is that it may actually cement the dollar as the world currency once and for all. As the Association mops up all the fiat in the world they’ll likely turn it into dollars on the back end anyway, so Euros and Yen become Dollars and cents.Maybe that’s why so many regulators are looking so closely at it. Money is the ultimate in frozen concentrated power and states will not give that power up without a fight, even to the massive corporations backingthis rave new coin.

It’s a war the crypto community always knew was coming but never really had the power to win. All the crypto projects to date are a rag-tag insurgency, using guerrilla tactics, staying anonymous and spreading out, but they’ve never had much of a chance standing up against the true might of the state if the state turned the eye of Sauron upon them. In a way, Facebook just did the community a massive favor. They’ll draw the fight away from smaller projects and Bitcoin to a more conventional enemy, a top down, hierarchical enemy. This is an enemy the state understands well. There’s nothing states love more than cutting off the “head of the snake.”

But this is no easy fight.

This is a well funded and powerful opponent. The governments of the world aren’t facing eGold, they’re facing the Association, the modern equivalent of the Dutch and British East India companies. All that’s missing is their own company armies. This isn’t some small band of brothers project, working in secret, trying to keep their Github online and their exchanges from getting shut down by hostile governments. It’s an alliance. An alliance with a war chest. Buy n Large?—?everything you need to be happy! (courtesy of the amazing Pixar and Wall-E)

The Association behind Libra has the money and clout to write and change laws. And when their Buy n Large platform boots up, that power will grow with each passing second as more and more fiat money flows into their coffers. Any country that stands in their way will face a flurry of lobbyists and NGOs that will punish regulators and rewrite laws in their favor or starve that government of brand new wealth while other countries flourish. It’s cyberpunk come to life. Massive multinational corporations against the power of state. And if cyberpunk tells us anything, it’s that corporations eventually win.

The Sky Above the Port was the Color of TV Tuned to a Dead Channel

For years I’ve warned that if the crypto community didn’t move fast the big boys and governments would take their ideas and warp them to fit the status quo. That time is now. If you want to corrupt the free-the-money movement, the formula is simple: Take a dash of power-to-the-people corporate marketing, like

banking the unbanked:

“Reinvent money. Transform the global economy. So people everywhere can live better lives.”

Just like Pepsi selling a fight the man message so you drink more sugary sweet cola, they’ve tugged at our heart strings with all those poor 3rd world people who just can’t get a bank account and buy things. Next you rope in the old world financial titans who’ve been patenting up the most basic and obvious ideas in the blockchain space to sue the hell out of any competitors to their global hegemony.

After that, make it simple and easy to use so that people who don’t care about trivial things like their privacy because they have “nothing to hide” will lap it up like good little lemmings. Lastly, trim it all down with key escrow and you’ve safely shut down the crypto revolution. Don’t worry Citizen, Facebook helpfully keeps your private keys for you so you don’t have any control over your money, just like the regular banking system! And of course, they won’t tie your money to an

ID according to the whitepaper:

“The Libra Blockchain is pseudonymous and allows users to hold one or more addresses that are not linked to their real-world identity.”

Trust us.

But we know that’s not true because “Calibra will require users to go through an intensive Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC)” on-boarding for every user. That’s just one of dozens of contradictions if you look close and read between the lines. We have a blockchain, non-blockchain. We have a permissioned system that will “transition to a permissionless system” with no explanation whatsoever of how they will pull off that little feat. We have a currency not tied to an ID but an intensive AML process.

Just like the Indian Aadhaar “voluntary” ID system where the system wasn’t supposed to keep people’s history and link it all together, all it took was the Indian government passing a law and now they have to keep the data. Then the government followed that by making an Aadhaar ID essential to open a bank account or keep your bank account open and suddenly voluntary is mandatory and we’ve slid as far down the slippery slope as possible.

Pretty soon a centralized digital ID will be absolutely required just to use the system, all for your protection. And then companies and governments will know everything you do and everywhere you go and everything you spend your money on as they track you with advanced AI/ML algorithms. If the dream of crypto enthusiasts was to restore self-sovereign money, they failed. Either that or this is a major setback and the rebel alliance needs to fall back and regroup fast.

Vader is and always was your daddy. These companies took the best ideas of the crypto community and channeled them safely back through known choke points. Maybe you thought you were working on the hope of the future when you got into crypto? All it would take was some patience and time and you could tunnel your way out of captivity. You didn’t realize your prison escape club was sponsored by the prison association all along. You were just tunneling into another part of the prison.

But there’s still hope.

Proprietary platforms often take an early lead because they can do just what Facebook did, design a fabulous interface, scale fast and hurl tons of money at the problem. Eventually though, open platforms catch up. Open source software ate proprietary software in the enterprise and the cloud over the last decade. Every major innovation starts in open source now, whether that is big data, or cloud, or AI. Open projects are slow moving, made by rebels and misfits standing against the galactic empire. They start off ugly but eventually find their way through a slow evolution that wins out over the directed evolution of proprietary systems.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

It doesn’t always work out that way. Apple builds walled gardens that work surprisingly well and it made them the biggest company in the world. Sometimes the rebel alliance pulls it out at the last minute, just like in the movies, but sometimes the empire wins.

It’s hard not to get depressed the more I look at Libra.

It’s everything I wanted for the crypto community, scalability, usability and a robust ecosystem of merchants and businesses supporting it with their hard earned money. They even built in a secondary investment coin for their corporate titans, basically a deflationary coin that rewards their oligarchy, and gamified money, because validators can give away Libra as rewards, just like I’ve been pushing for years.

And yet it’s everything that we should hate and fear.

Panopticon money. Lack of control. Identities linked to everything we do so that companies know where we live, where we shop, who we’re sleeping with, who we’re friends with and more. They can track our digital and real life right down to the nanosecond. And they can see through your wallet like Superman seeing through walls and into your past, present and even into your future with predictive analytics. They will control the flow of money and make or break businesses, communities and geographies.

And that is a disaster for the world.

We still have a chance to make a true break from the old world financial systems, to set money free, to separate money from state, to give control back to the people.

Facebook gave you an opening.

Let their lawyers deal with the might of terrified old world money titans. Let their lobbyists hammer out new laws and make and break nations that stand with them or against them.

Now is your chance.

If you haven’t hired every single developer and UX designer you can find, and reached out to every architect and business mastermind to help you craft a comprehensive platform and business plan then you need to move fast.

We’re running out of time.

Soon there won’t be any market left and Facebook will have stolen your dream right out from under your nose and turned it into a black mirror. If Libra is the ultimate winner in the space and speeds to world market dominance then crypto was the biggest waste of potential freedom ever invented.

The crypto-winter is over? What was said at this year’s UNCHAIN Convention in Berlin

The crypto-winter is over? What was said at this year’s UNCHAIN Convention in Berlin



On June 14-15, Berlin’s creative cluster Säälchen became a Bitcoin village,

where three hundred blockchain entrepreneurs and enthusiasts from Germany and abroad gathered to discuss the current state of affairs in crypto and future outlooks. This year, UNCHAIN Convention, the second edition of one of the world’s leading blockchain events, was moved from Hamburg to the German capital. As expected, the event was completely far from the classic conference format and was accompanied by outdoor activities and a boat trip along the Spree. The hot days in Berlin were in tune with heated discussions about the nature of cryptocurrency, the use of blockchains and layer-2 solutions, as well as by quite bold talks of politics that are only possible among true fans of decentralization.

This mood was intentional, as Unchain Convention is not just a conference, but a gathering of the global crypto community. Accordingly, a significant proportion of the guests came from abroad, including keynote speakers: Chairman at Bitcoin Foundation Brock Pierce, Wall Street Veteran & Bitcoin Enthusiast Tone Vays, and Co-Founder of Coinsilium Eddy Travia. Many attendees were from Eastern Europe – the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Russia – and

from South America. 

“This year’s Convention has been a blast. It hasn’t been a formal conference but a celebration and festival of passionated crypto entrepreneurs who not only are going for but will change the game and world we are living in,” Oskar Giese, UNCHAIN Convention founder. 

Noteworthy that the community has clearly matured to self-irony and a sober analysis of errors and perspectives. Hardly anyone has built his speech on enthusiasm and pathos for cryptocurrency, whether it is Bitcoin or altcoins. The most radical and nihilistic opinions about cryptocurrencies sounded from the scene, to the extent that they are all centralized and worth nothing. This opinion, however, was opposed by many. Such was the discussion initiated by Tone Vays and picked up by Eddy Travia, Steve Beauregard and Marc P. Bernegger. 

A subsequent portion of skepticism, however, mixed with optimism, was thrown into the public during the fireside chat where Aaron Koenig interviewed Bitcoin investment legend Brock Pierce. Speaking eloquently about his career and cryptocurrency, Pierce said an important thing that could become the slogan of the event and recent weeks: “the crypto-winter is over.” However, according to him, only four to five blockchains have prospects to build their own ecosystems, since most of the projects simply lack funds to do so. 

A further discussion of a mix of topics in the “blockchain technologies” block was accompanied by presentations of a colorful array of non-monetary applications of blockchains. Different aspects of the rejuvenation of Bitcoin development could also be seen in speeches by Christian Decker, Igor Korsakov and Stefan Snigirev, focused mainly on the projects related to the Lightning Network that is recognized as one of the most effective remedies to

Bitcoin and blockchain scaling. 

“The Lightning Network renders 99,85% of all Altcoins obsolete. I did the math myself,” Igor Korsakov, Bluewallet’s lead developer & co-creator. “The Lightning Network is unleashing a fresh set of creativity, chaotic beauty and community spirit,” Jeff Gallas, CEO and Co-Founder of Fulmo. 

Overall, despite some skepticism, the confidence in the further decentralization of the world remains high among the community, so this year’s UNCHAIN Convention is thought to be not the last, with the third edition of the stellar event to be

expected in 2020. 

“Beyond the price hype is a computing revolution,” Alena Vranova, Head of Strategy at CASA.

57 Million ETH Transfer Commanding Ethereum Market Price What More To Expect?

$57 Million ETH Transfer Commanding Ethereum Market Price, What More To Expect?


Ethereum (ETH), the 2nd largest cryptocurrency by market,

has constantly followed Bitcoin (BTC) price surging course, as the crypto market enters the supposedly bullish season. The buying pressure has drastically increased, and the crypto whales keep moving their precious assets from one account to another. A recent Ethereum (ETH) whale fund transfer has been reported, with $57 Million worth of ETH moved, leaving a positive impact on its price, as it keeps surging without relenting.

Bitcoin has obviously led the price growth race in the market, while other cryptocurrencies follow. Ethereum (ETH) has also managed pace along, but it is still lagging behind as BTC threads up with great momentum .Ethereum has been one of the best performers among the top 10 cryptocurrencies. It seems obvious that altcoins that are ready to join Bitcoin’s price growth would benefit greatly as the crypto market capitalisation keeps appreciating on daily basis.

Ethereum Whale Moves $57 Million Worth of ETH

Crypto whales’ activity is a big deal that can never be underestimated. Their past impacts in commanding the prices of cryptocurrencies in the market have been quite enormous.Also READ  Why Government and Binance Investment In TravelbyBit Could Take Crypto Adoption To A New Level. Sometimes it favours the market and the otherwise can also occur, but the recent huge transaction of ETH is indeed beneficial to the price of the digital currency, as it continues to trend upward over the last 24 hours.

According to Etherscan, a huge transaction of 173,932 ETH was moved from 0x60cd748f838651c003c24dbde33c8885d504ed9d to 0xd3e3664b58adf11c8f4d46f7bb666cf2e97f9029, which worth relatively $57 Million at press time. The transfer was effected at 03:41:04 AM +UTC, on 3rd June 2019. Ethereum has been enjoying relatively 8% price upsurge in the last 24 hours. At the time of filing this report, ETH is trading at $338.12, with over 36 Billion market capitalisation, and $12,168,825,632 24H volume.

Bitcoin’s Price Rally and How It Has Impacted the Market, Especially Ethereum (ETH)

Bitcoin (BTC), the largest cryptocurrency by market cap has been initiating a distinct and beautiful price rally in the market. However, some altcoins have been reluctant in joining the pace. Top 10 cryptocurrencies such as Ripple XRP, Litecoin (LTC), Binance (BNB), EOS, Bitcoin SV (BSV) and others have failed to replicate the present price trend in the market. While the likes of Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and Tron (TRX) are so far the best performers that are ready to share the market lots with Bitcoin (BTC), and more is expected from them in coming day.

Ethereum is seemingly natured to grow concurrently with Bitcoin, due to its past and consistent reactions to the surging trend of the digital currency. However, this changed a bit about two weeks ago, when BTC kept growing with no positive impact on ETH. The recent Bitcoin price rally is greatly favouring the growth of Ethereum, giving its investors good investment return and convincing the potential suitors in leveraging on this consistent price appreciation.
