Consensus 2018 Report (Continuous Updates Through May 17th)

Happy Wednesday! We are live!
Consensus Short Statistics
State of Blockchain
Don Tapscott
-"We are entering a new era of trust"
-Generally remarked on the benefits of blockchain. Identified the 7 types of crypto assets (Currencies, Collectibles, Stablecoins, Natural Asset Tokens [Representing minerals, water], Utility Tokens, and Security Tokens.)
As I remarked in my comment earlier, FedEx is incredibly bullish on blockchain technology generally, but specifically in it's applications for cross-border shipping and asset-tracking. As I learned, the definition of what constitutes a "coffee cup" differs from place to place. Using blockchain, Smith says, FedEx can protect against unforeseen obstacles at customs. "Information about the package is as important as the package itself," he claims, further adding that the risk of experimenting with cryptocurrency is "de minimis" when compared to its alternative. During the session, FedEx unveiled "Trons", bluetooth-enabled sensors integrated with blockchain first announced in 2016.
Jim Bullard, St. Louis Fed
Fantastic, informational lecture regarding the history of currency and how civilizations have reacted to various implementations. Generally, Bullard notes, humans want a uniform currency. He compared cryptos with state/provincial bank notes, citing the problems faced with exchange, regulation, and value verification. We haven't yet realized this problem with cryptocurrencies since the market cap is relatively small.
Insightful statistics about and charts comparing GDP to the inflation/exchange rates of the DollaYen. Surprisingly, the volatility charts look worse than Bitcoin. Catch all of these when the videos are released later this week.
Summarizing, Bullard claimed that there will be a plurality of coins sharing the ecosystem, each providing a specific use. The Federal Reserve will likely mint a fiat/cryptocurrency that represents a stable stock of U.S. dollars sometime in the mid term future.
Jed McCaleb
I spoke with Jed of the Stellar Foundation. This is a Bitcoin subreddit, so I'll skip this part. You can find the full transcript of his thoughts here.
Charlie Lee and David Schwarz
Both spoke on a panel about interoperability between Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple, etc. Developers better understand that most cryptocurrencies can interface as long as they use the same "hooks". Schwartz compared this ideal system akin to TCP-IP; a minimal framework making as few technological demands as necessary.
An ecosystem with multiple coins utilizing different security protocols and consensus mechanisms is "good for Bitcoin". In a theoretical world where power becomes abundant, what happens to PoW? We want the ability to migrate to a new protocol without upending the entire financial system. In a world where security is compromised, redundancy is critical.
Lee sees UI as the next significant hurdle. Not for speculators, but for mom-and-pop investors without much tech savvy.
-Hardware to expand and facilitate mesh networks.
-Even if you own Bitcoin, transfer can be censored/inhibited through the network communicating the transaction to the blockchain.
-Using mesh networks, we bypass many of these constraints dealing directly with sovereign ISP's.
-This is fantastic for Bitcoin users in 3rd world countries/those with oppressive regimes. I will leave this to your imagination.
-Smart contract platform on top of the Bitcoin protocol. -Ecosystem challenges (Tx costs, security, scalability) -Tx cost is $0.035 - +10% hashing power -Up to 100 tps. -Next -Payment channels (Lumino) -Predicability (Fiat-based fees) -Decentralization (BTC and RSK full-node rewards) -Interoperability (inter-blockchain integration) 
I'm sorry if you find this post lacking/off topic. Attempted to refine down to only what might be relevant to a Bitcoin trader. Even if Bitcoin isn't specifically mentioned, many of these innovations/philosophies will apply to the crypto space generally and, thus, to Bitcoin.
It's already the end of Day 2 and I'm finishing the write-up for D1. I'll compile D2 and D3 for brevity's sake. Most of this news is now relatively (a day) old.
Thanks for your attention and help supporting the crypto revolution.
P.S. "Where is my Consensus boost!? I thought BTC should be $10k by now!"
Historically, the Consensus Boost happens several weeks after the event, likely as news disseminates.
Joseph Lubin bets BlockChain Capital's Jimmy Song, "any amount of Bitcoin" that blockchain will have widespread enterprise adoption within 5 years
Day 2
Will try an update. Sitting through, eToro will be opening business in the United States, launching a wallet shortly after. Users can view successful traders' profiles and subscribe to their trades, copying them second-by-second.
Circle announces a USD stablecoin and crypto wallet.
HTC announces a crypto phone.
Deloitte releases preview of cryptocurrency report, shows majority of companies pursuing blockchain.
-"But this is just blockchain". Yes, and a rising tide lifts all ships.
The Magical Crypto Friends Live From Consensus. Warning, shitty audio.
-Founders of several currencies (Litecoin, Monero) discuss Buffett, Bitcoin, and other BS. 56 minute duration. For the hardcore.
Day 3
-Announcing a consortium for investors/institutions who manage multiple accounts. Today, Ledger Nano S is really only useful to the individual owner.
-Called, "Komino"? (Japanese Script).
-Isn't this compromising the dream of Satoshi? Speaker thinks no. The dream is that everyone can use Bitcoin as they see fit. Large companies can have positions in Bitcoin without changing the life of crypto maximalists who can still use cryptocurrencies.
-Bankers have the right to "Go full Moon and lambos".
-The next big wave in crypto are Security Tokens.
-Real estate, equity in companies.
-Amongst crypto VC founders, Security Tokens will comprise 50-90% of the crypto market in the coming years. Currently, the share is approximately 1%.
-You can create a security token right now. Log on here and try the demo.
-First blockchain telegram to reach 50,000 users.
-Integrating with tZero. All new securities should have liquidity out of the box.
-ST-20. A security token standard designed to ameliorate many of the issues with fragmented ICO's.
-Launching a ST Venture Fund, "Polymath Capital".
-New CoinMarketCap competitor. "". Perhaps they'll finally force some innovation on the CMC side.
-Polymath 2.0 TestNet now live.
-Internet 3.0 is here. Mesh networks, decentralized data, crypto assets. We are not storing data with companies anymore, we are personally responsible. One day, we will have a universal ID that removes the need for a rolodex of passwords, usernames, and security questions.
-BlockStack members advise on Silicon Valley. Fun fact.
-Infrastructure and speculative investment grew from less than $100B in January, to $100B in May, and, finally, over $600B by November.
-Sounds like a dApp talk. They're making iTunes for dApps. I'll come back when he says, "Bitcoin".
Jack Dorsey and Elizabeth Stark
-Jack first heard of Bitcoin in St. Louis via a group of Cypherpunks.
-Appreciated the complexity of code, but didn't realize the potential just yet.
-Met some engineers who wanted to build a Bitcoin solution for Square. Buyers/sellers could accept Bitcoin without knowing they were using Bitcoin.
-Community "felt like Usenet" as it developed between 2014 and 2017. "Felt electric".
-Claimed Square's strengths are speed and simplicity. Credit cards are complex and often emotional. Talking about the Cash app, the goal is to revisit the coffee purchase of old and make it feasible using Bitcoin.
-"We have evidence to show people are using this as their primary spending account, their primary bank account, and, in some cases, their only bank account."
-"We have people that have been blocked from entering the financial industry." Even merchants had problems accepting payments. "Reaching the underserved, reaching the unbanked", he says, feels good.
-On Square adopting Bitcoin. "It was certainly contentious within our company." "I guess we always take the mindset that we can't wait for things to happen to us...If we want responsible uses...then we have to make that happen, we have to do the work to educate regulators, educate the SEC, show that we can provide more access to more people...give people a chance to participate in the economy...still a lot of disagreements and fights, but that's where the magic happens. We really push through, and this tested us. There was certainly a spotlight on us because of that fact, but there are a lot of unknowns. We ran towards them."
-On the future, the potential of Bitcoin. "The internet deserves a native currency. It will have a native currency. I don't know if it will be Bitcoin or not, but I hope it will be. I appreciate the technology so much; the principles behind it. Using the guide that the Internet will have a global's going to happen. As a company, as individuals, we need to learn how to make that happen. The biggest thing I worry about as a company is there is so much openness within the community, I hope nothing corporate will come in and threaten it." Protecting the open-source nature of the work. "This is a discussion I have a lot with Mike and the team. No one company or corporation should own this. This is the main question of everyone I meet in the community. We have a completely open mindset to ensure this remains a completely open platform. Let's not wait for it to happen. Let's do our part to encourage it to be used in healthy ways and ensure that everyone has access to it. If we ever go astray call us out. We can't do any of this without the technology being strong and available to everyone."
-"Obviously we are a centralized organization that benefits from decentralization. It's a theme of conversation within our organization and we're looking to decentralize our workforce. Cash is an interesting application in our company." Going to Australia next week to check in with the local team there. They are agnostic on what locale partners decide to nest in.
-Large corporate HQ's like Twitter and Square, "are a thing of the past". People will be able to work from wherever they please.
-"Nobody is going to a bank for a $6,000 loan. They're going to friends and family." They can all be served with this technology.
-Hesitates to make articulated 5-10 year predictions, prefers patience and iterating as each year develops. "We want to go back to the original idea of being able to purchase a coffee with it. That's why we're working with you. Whatever it takes to get there, we're going to try and make it happen." Encouraging more access to the financial space is the primary objective of the Square organization.
-"Over the past two years since we've really pushed our way into this, I've felt that electricity"
-Elizabeth Stark feels like she's living through the mid-90's again, "In a positive way".
-Stark is an optimist. "Really seeing the value behind the means of transacting without a middle party." It wasn't until Satoshi's whitepaper did we have the means to build a solution to this problem.
-"Our goal with Lightning is to enable an application layer like the Internet". -Stark
-On potential, compelling apps built on Bitcoin. "As I said, there's just so much to trust, to identity, to decentralizing almost everything we use today in a centralized way. We get the power of the crowd, the ability to see so many amazing perspectives and opinions to make our answers much better. I don't think about that as much as I think about what we need to focus on."
-On what they need to focus on. "There's a desire for more. There's definitely an incentive to hold the technology and encourage a mindset of saving rather than spending. But making it easier to spend, easier to transact, easier to do the everyday is what we need to focus on. We aren't necessarily going to be the company that comes up with the right frameworks or technologies, but I'm confident we'll be part of facilitating the process."
-The ultimate relationship with a regulator is that of education, Dorsey claims.
-On becomng a global company. "If we were ever able to use it as a payment mechanism today, we could release it all over the world opposed to the 5 markets we're in today. With each market, we have to find a banking partner, work through the regulatory." Only way to accept credit cards in Japan involved a 15-minute interview with an official. There is a large amount of legacy legislation that hampers adoption.
-On the next steps of democratizing finance. "Hardest part is continuing this conversation...certainly the regulatory bodies around the world, the banks..." Slowly but surely, Square is converting Goldman Sach's-types, showing them the reasons behind the movement. Having, "healthy discussions at the board level."
-On advice getting started in the industry. "Follow the conversation on Twitter, first and foremost. (laughter) And not just follow." When he first followed the industry, he felt like he had nothing to contribute. Join the conversation, express a point of view. "So many people fear expressing an opinion...instead of treating it like a conversation". "While you follow these conversations--jump in. People are going to think you're weird, they'll disagree with you, but you'll sharpen your opinions...find where they resonate." Pursue success from there.
I visited the BCash table and asked the representative to respond to claims that the company was causing label confusion amongst BTC and BCH. She locked up, asked if I was press, and, "was not at liberty to discuss the topic".
Scam. Scam. Scam. Did I say scam?
That's it for Bitcoin! Thanks for playing Consensus 2018!
I have tons of photos to upload, which I'll share in the Daily General Discussion as they come online.

Thông tin chi tiết về đồng ripple

Thông tin chi tiết về đồng ripple
Ripple coin (XRP) là 1 hệ thống thanh toán tổng hợp theo thời kì thực (RTGS) hay còn gọi là Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP) hoặc giao thức Ripple. Ripple là 1 hệ thống phân tán mã nguồn mở đang nằm ở công đoạn Beta, nhiều người vẫn kể Ripple là tên gọi chung của một dòng tiền điện tử khoa học số. Màng lưới Ripple ra đời năm 2012 sở hữu mục đích giúp cho mọi người sở hữu thể sử dụng nhà cung cấp nhà băng, Paypal, thẻ nguồn đầu tư hay tổ chức tài chính sở hữu 1 mức giá thành khôn xiết phải chăng sở hữu tốc độ xỷ lý mau chóng.
Ripple dùng khoa học thuật toán chuỗi khối Blockchain tương tự như đồng tiền ảo Bitcoin, nhằm tương trợ nâng cao tốc giải quyết các đàm phán vốn đầu tư giữa những nhà băng nhanh hơn. Sau đây là toàn bộ thông tin về đồng ripple mà bạn cần biết.

nhóm nhân sự phát triển của Ripple

đồng tiền Ripple hay giao thức của Ripple được công ty OpenCoin vun đắp và phát triển, trong đó Chris Larsen là giám đốc điều hành và giám đốc kỹ thuật là ông Jed McCaleb. Larsen là Nhà đồng sáng lập kiêm lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp nguồn vốn E-LOAN còn McCaleb đến trong khoảng Sàn Mt. Gox. Bên cạnh đó, còn tất cả những thành viên khác của Ripple là các người chuyên nghiên cứ về tiền ảo, đặc trưng họ rất thông đạt về nền móng Bitcoin.

đồng bạc Ripple có giống Bitcoin không?

chắc chắn lúc mới Phân tích về Ripple phổ thông người sẽ nghi vấn liệu Ripple mang giống có tiền ảo Bitcoin không? Câu tư vấn ở đây là “sở hữu thể giống ở một đôi phương diện”. Thí dụ như công ty XRP của Ripple là 1 cái tiền khoa học số dựa hoạt động trên các công thức toán học và số lượng phát hành bị tránh. Cả Bitcoin và đồng Ripple đều tiêu dùng mạng giao dịch ngang hàng P2P, tức là giao dịch không cần sự can thiệp của bên thứ ba. Cộng có đấy là khả năng chống khiến giả hoặc bị lạm phát của 2 đồng tiền ảo này là tươn tự nhau.
tuy nhiên, mục đích Ripple xây dựng thương hiệu là để tương trợ cho Bitcoin, chứ không phải trở thành đối thủ khó khăn. Mạng lưới của tiền ảo Ripple được mẫu mã để tạo ra cho việc chuyển tiền tệ một cách liền mạch, cho dù đó là bất cứ dòng tiền tệ của quốc gia nào: USD, Bảng Anh, Euro hay nhắc cả Bitcoin.
XRP là 1 mạng phân tán nên nó chẳng hề phụ thuộc vào bất cứ công ty, đơn vị nào điều hành, thành ra những dữ liệu, thông báo thương lượng được đảm bảo luôn an toàn, không cần chờ xác nhận mà với thể đi qua mạng một cách thức chóng vánh.

Tỷ giá của đồng bạc ảo Ripple

Theo những nhà lớn mạnh mạng dưới Ripple thì sẽ sở hữu khoảng 100 tỷ XRP được phát hành, trong đấy một nửa được tổ chức nắm giữ, một nửa còn lại sẽ được lưu thông trên thị trường. Ở thời điểm viết bài này giá của Ripple đang là $0.167788 và với tổng vốn hóa thị trường lên đến hơn 6 tỷ đô la tương đương với hơn 3 triệu BTC.
ví như bạn mang hướng thú có đồng bạc này thì nên theo dõi tỷ giá Ripple hàng ngày để nắm được biến động giá của nó. Ngoài ra, thường xuyên cập nhật các tin tức mới nhất trên thế giới về Ripple hay Bitcoin, vì giá Ripple sẽ bị tác động trực tiếp trong khoảng những thông tin thị phần như vậy cũng như từ chính giá của Bitcoin.

Ripple lôi kéo hàng loạt ngân hàng lớn trên toàn cầu

Trong danh sách đối tác chiến lược của Ripple trước ấy đã sở hữu các mẫu tên nặng ký như Google, IDG Capital Partners, Anderssen hay AME Cloud Ventures. Tính đến nay, số vốn được rót của màng lưới Ripple đã đạt 93 triệu đô la, đây là một còn số rất ấn tượng đối có 1 công ty khởi nghiệp mới có mặt trên thị trường từ năm 2012. Theo Thống kê của trang Coindesk thì số tiền đầu cơ vào Ripple Đứng thứ 4 trong phân khúc những tổ chức sản xuất nhà cung cấp điện toán chuỗi khối và tiền ảo Bitcoin. Cũng theo tờ tạp trí Forrtune, giá trị của Ripple đã nâng cao lên hơn 25% sau lúc tuyên bố đã rót vốn thêm được 55 triệu USD.

Tham vọng toàn cầu của Ripple

CEO của Ripple ông Chris Larsen cho biết Ripple đang chóng vánh phân bổ vốn cho các kế hoạch tầm vóc toàn cầu.
Ông Larsen trả lời CNBC:
Chúng tôi đang mở mang các khu vực mà chúng tôi sở hữu văn phòng. Ripple muốn mở rộng hơn nữa và lớn mạnh năng lực cho những đội ngũ mới. Chúng tôi đang gấp rút tuyển thêm nhận sự, cùng lúc tăng số lượng lập trình viên để trực tiếp khiến việc có những ngân hàng đối tác ngay tại quốc gia của họ. Chỉ với vậy mới đưa ra được những giải pháp tối ưu nhất cho các bên của chúng tôi.
Tiếp sau văn phòng mới ra đời tại Luxemburg, địa điểm tiếp theo mà Ripple nhắm đến là Frankfurt (Đức) và Singapore cùng phổ biến điểm tới khác. Ông Larsen cho rằng, một khi những trang bị kết nối mạng sở hữu lượng ngày càng to trong kỷ nguyên internet, những khoản thanh toán nhỏ xuyên biên giới sẽ nhất tề tăng theo. Các nhà băng sẽ cần tới Ripple để giải quyết bài toán của họ.
CEO của Ripple cho biết, họ đang bắt đầu khai triển phương án giúp đỡ đội ngũ khởi nghiệp nhỏ hơn trong cùng ngành nghề mang mục đích lớn mạnh ra thế giới. Mà đối thủ lớn nhất của ripple chính là đồng tiền kỹ thuật số stellar .

các thành quả Của Ripple

XRP Ledger (XRPL)

Dựa trên Công trình của Fugger và được lấy cảm hứng trong khoảng việc tạo ra Bitcoin, Ripple đã triển khai Ripple Consensus Ledger (RCL) vào năm 2012 – cùng sở hữu việc cho ra đời đồng bạc điện tử XRP. RCL sau này được đổi tên thành XRP Ledger (XRPL).
XRPL hoạt động như 1 hệ thống kinh tế phân tán không chỉ lưu trữ đông đảo thông tin kế toán của những người tham gia mạng mà còn cung ứng những nhà cung cấp đàm phán cho phổ quát cặp tiền tệ. Ripple giới thiệu XRPL như một sổ dòng phân tán mã nguồn mở cho phép thực hiện các đàm phán tài chính theo thời gian thực. Những đàm phán này được bảo đảm và xác minh bởi những người tham dự mạng phê duyệt cơ chế đồng thuận.
không những thế, không giống như Bitcoin, XRP Ledger không dựa trên thuật toán đồng thuận Proof of Work,và bởi thế, không dựa vào giai đoạn đào để xác minh các giao dịch. Thay vào đấy, mạng đạt được sự đồng thuận thông qua việc sử dụng thuật toán đồng thuận được tùy chỉnh của nó – trước đây được gọi là Thuật toán Đồng thuận Giao thức Ripple (RPCA).
XRPL được điều hành bởi một mạng gồm những node công nhận độc lập liên tiếp thực hiện đối chiếu các bản ghi đàm phán. Bất cứ người nào cũng sở hữu thể thiết lập và chạy 1 node trình công nhận Ripple, chẳng những vậy còn mang thể chọn các node để tin cậy làm cho trình công nhận hợp lệ. Tuy nhiên, Ripple khuyên quý khách nên dùng danh sách các đối tượng tham gia đã được xác định và đáng tin cậy để chính xác giao dịch. Danh sách này được gọi là Unique Node List (UNL).
các node UNL luận bàn dữ liệu đàm phán với nhau cho đến khi tất cả chúng đồng thuận về hiện trạng ngày nay của sổ loại. Đề cập phương pháp khác, các đàm phán được thỏa thuận dựa trên cơ chế bỏ phiếu siêu gần như gồm các node UNL được coi là hợp lệ, và sự đồng thuận sẽ đạt được khi đông đảo những node này cộng nhất quán việc áp dụng tập những đàm phán vào sổ mẫu.
Theo website chính thức của Ripple, Ripple là một doanh nghiệp tư nhân đã thiết lập sự vững mạnh của XRPL như một sổ chiếc phân tán mã nguồn mở. Điều này mang tức là bất kỳ người nào cũng sở hữu thể đóng góp vào mã và XRPL với thể được tiếp diễn ngay cả lúc tổ chức ngừng hoạt động.


ngược lại với XRPL, RippleNet là độc quyền của tổ chức Ripple và được xây dựng trên nền móng XRPL như 1 mạng lưới thanh toán và thương lượng.
RippleNet hiện phân phối một bộ gồm 3 sản phẩm được thiết kế như một hệ thống giải pháp thanh toán cho các ngân hàng và các tổ chức tài chính khác. Hiện tại, RippleNet với ba sản phẩm chính: xRapid, xCurrent và xVia.


nói ngắn gọn, xRapid là một biện pháp thanh khoản theo đề nghị, dùng XRP như 1 loại tiền tệ cầu nối trên toàn cầu cho những cặp tiền tệ fiat. Cả XRP và xRapid đều dựa vào XRP Ledger, cho phép thời gian xác nhận mau lẹ hơn và giá tiền rẻ hơn phổ thông so sở hữu các phương pháp truyền thống.
Hãy lấy một ví dụ đơn giản. Bob muốn gửi $100 trong khoảng Australia cho Alice ở bên Ấn Độ. Bob chuyển tiền qua 1 tổ chức tài chính gọi là FIN. Để thực hiện đàm phán, FIN tiêu dùng biện pháp xRapid để tạo kết nối giữa các đại lý phân phối tài sản ở cả quốc gia nguồn và đất nước đích. Bằng cách thức này, doanh nghiệp sở hữu thể chuyển đổi $100 của Bob thành XRP, giúp sản xuất thanh khoản cần phải có cho việc thanh toán chung cuộc. Chỉ trong vài giây, XRP sẽ được chuyển đổi thành đồng Rupee của Ấn Độ và Alice sở hữu thể rút tiền từ sàn phân phối tài sản bên Ấn Độ.


xCurrent là một biện pháp được ngoại hình để cung cấp quyết toán ngay tức khắc và theo dõi các thanh toán xuyên biên giới giữa những thành viên của RippleNet. Không giống như xRapid, giải pháp xCurrent không dựa trên XRP Ledger và không tiêu dùng đồng tiền điện tử XRP theo mặc định. XCurrent được xây dựng tiếp giáp với Interledger Protocol (ILP), được ngoài mặt bởi Ripple như 1 giao thức để kết nối các sổ chiếc hoặc các mạng trả tiền khác nhau.
Bốn thành phần cơ bản của xCurrent là:
  1. Messenger – Messenger cung ứng giao thiệp ngang hàng giữa các tổ chức tài chính của RippleNet. Nó được tiêu dùng để bàn thảo thông tin liên quan tới rủi ro và tuân thủ, phí, tỷ giá FX, chi tiết trả tiền và thời kì chuyển tiền dự định.
  2. Validator – Validator (trình xác nhận) được sử dụng để xác nhận, bằng kỹ thuật mã hóa, sự thành công hay thất bại của 1 thương lượng, ngoài ra để phối hợp trong việc chuyển tiền trên Interledger. Những tổ chức tín dụng với thể chạy validator của riêng mình hoặc có thể dựa vào validator của bên thứ ba.
  3. ILP Ledger – Interledger Protocol được khai triển vào các sổ chiếc ngân hàng hiện có, tạo ra ILP Ledger. ILP Ledger hoạt động như 1 sổ dòng phụ và được tiêu dùng để theo dõi các khoản nguồn đầu tư, ghi nợ và thanh khoản giữa các đối tác thương lượng. Những quỹ sẽ được quyết toán rất nhanh, tức thị tức thì nếu như mang thể được hoặc là không.
  4. FX Ticker – FX ticker được tiêu dùng để xác định những tỷ giá hối hận đoái giữa các bên đàm phán. Nó theo dõi hiện trạng hiện giờ của mỗi ILP Ledger được cấu hình.
mặc dù xCurrent được ngoài mặt cốt yếu cho các chiếc tiền tệ fiat, nó cũng hỗ trợ những giao dịch tiền điện tử.


xVia là một giao diện chuẩn hóa dựa trên API cho phép các ngân hàng và các dịch vụ nhà cung cấp tài chính khác tương tác trong 1 khuông độc nhất – mà chẳng hề dựa vào rộng rãi tích hợp mạng trả tiền. XVia cho phép các nhà băng tạo các trả tiền duyệt các bên ngân hàng khác được kết nối mang RippleNet và cũng cho phép họ gắn hóa đơn hoặc những thông báo khác vào những thương lượng.

Highly Centralized Ripple (XRP) a Contagion not a Cryptocurrency

Highly Centralized Ripple (XRP) a Contagion not a Cryptocurrency
The War On Shitcoins Episode 5: Ripple (XRP). The war on shitcoins is a Crypto.IQ series that targets and shoots down cryptocurrencies that are not worth investing in either due to their being scams, having serious design flaws, being centralized, or in general just being worthless copies of other cryptocurrencies. There are thousands of shitcoins that are ruining the markets, and Crypto.IQ intends to expose all of them. The crypto space needs an exorcism, and we are happy to provide it.
At this time, Ripple (XRP) is ranked as the number two cryptocurrency on CoinMarketCap with a market cap of $12.2 billion. However, when diving into Ripple’s actual technical details, it is clear XRP is not a cryptocurrency. XRP has no blockchain. Rather, it depends on a centralized distributed ledger system known as the Ripple Consensus Protocol. XRP has a built-in account freeze feature that most users are unaware of. The supply of XRP, and therefore the XRP market itself, is highly centralized. Based on all of this, Ripple (XRP) is clearly a shitcoin, and its spot near the top of the CoinMarketCap list is misleading.
For starters, there is a total of 100 billion XRP, with 59 billion XRP under the centralized control of Ripple Labs and 41 billion XRP in circulation. All 41 billion XRP that are in circulation were purchased from Ripple Labs, with a small amount being given away to charity each year, possibly so Ripple Labs does not have to pay its full tax bill. Each month, Ripple Labs sells up to 1 billion XRP, which is released from an escrow contract. This applies constant downward pressure on the XRP market and leads to a much higher than usual inflation rate for XRP versus other cryptocurrencies. This fact alone makes XRP a bad investment choice. There are much better, more decentralized cryptocurrencies to invest in that are not subject to overt market manipulation.
Another way to look at it, which makes the awful XRP market situation quite clear, is that the market cap of XRP is $12.2 billion, but Ripple Labs holds $17.7 billion XRP. Therefore, Ripple Labs holds more than enough XRP to suck the market completely dry. Also, there is no proof that Ripple Labs cannot simply print more XRP.
The centralized market conditions for XRP is a serious issue, but the centralized nature of the Ripple Consensus Protocol is even more concerning. There is no blockchain involved, rather it is a group of servers that validate each other. BitMEX Research deeply investigated this issue and found that Ripple Labs controls the servers. This makes the Ripple platform and XRP 100% centralized, and users must trust Ripple Labs. This is the opposite of the trustless decentralized blockchain that fuels Bitcoin.
Further, the Ripple Consensus Protocol has a powerful account freeze feature, which they built-in for regulatory compliance. This means that Ripple Labs can freeze any Ripple account. This was supposedly done so they would not get in trouble with the government, which is bad enough since that means the government can demand that Ripple Labs freeze user’s accounts. Even worse, Ripple Labs has exercised this power to freeze accounts in at least one case for their own motives, and it ended up being illegal.
One of the children of Ripple’s Co-Founder, Jed McCaleb, sold $1 million of XRP on Bitstamp, in a deal that was organized with Ripple Labs. After the deal was complete and Ripple Labs had acquired the XRP, Ripple Labs proceeded to use this account freeze feature to seize the USD. Bitstamp took this case to court, and it was ruled that Ripple Labs had to unfreeze the money and pay all legal fees. The case was found to be even more greasy than expected since this particular sale of XRP was meant to manipulate the price of XRP by setting the sale price of the XRP too high.
Just to show how centralized XRP is, one of the Founders of Ripple Labs, Jed McCaleb, received 9.5 XRP when the currency was first created. McCaleb was basically forced out of the company, and he went on to sell about 2 billion XRP before his account was frozen. A long court battle ensued in which Ripple Labs tried and failed to get the XRP back, and ultimately, it was decided that McCaleb must donate 2 billion XRP to charity and is only able to sell a small amount of his XRP per year.
If one of the primary Founders of Ripple cannot even use his XRP as he wishes, how can anyone else expect to have full control of their XRP? The reality is no one has full control of their XRP holdings since Ripple Labs could freeze their account at any time. This is the equivalent of Satoshi Nakamoto having his Bitcoins frozen after he left the development team, which is fortunately impossible.
It is crystal clear that Ripple (XRP) is not a cryptocurrency, but really just a balance in a centralized ledger system that is 100 percent controlled by Ripple Labs. Since the Ripple Consensus Protocol is run on a centralized set of servers there is no technological barrier to changing the rules. Already, it is profitable enough for Ripple Labs since Ripple Labs controls most of the supply and can freeze anyone’s account. They probably won’t change the rules.
It is absolutely baffling that some cryptocurrency users think Ripple (XRP) is awesome and defend it despite all of its issues. XRP is absolutely set up to fail since it has a single point of failure: Ripple Labs. Currently, Ripple Labs is in an intense court battle over whether XRP is a security, even though it is obviously a security.
The only thing delaying the necessary SEC announcement that XRP is a security is Ripple Lab’s well-paid legal team. When the SEC finally cracks down on Ripple Labs, it could be historically harsh, since the SEC has the ability to retroactively penalize Ripple Labs for all of its unregistered and unsanctioned security issuances since it launched. XRP is the crypto space equivalent of really contagious athlete’s foot that has infected the entire family, and the SEC has a big tube of Lotrimin that they can douse XRP with at any time.

Doge Token : AKA the post Sporklin did not want to make.

At times Twitter is not the platform that allows the proper conveyance of engagement, 280 characters is generally not enough; especially for myself. Given the topic here I ask that you allow me the grace of a proper platform in order to do this in a manner that leaves little question to intention.
I want to preface this given rarely do I have to do these in public. Myself, the Dogecoin Core Developers believe that the space is wonderful, diverse, creative, and engaging across the several thousands of assets that exist. It is neither my intention nor our intention to prohibit, attack, dissuade or otherwise disincline something from existing in the space. However every now and again projects do pop up that seem to want their "upstart" in the space to begin with attacking Dogecoin. As a community driven asset with deeply communal ties to the entire space there are moments where even we pause and ask for clarity. This can help to gauge intentions, cause and more than once has led to showing someone as a "bad actor" in the space. We have spent over half a decade working with the Doge/Dogecoin branding, there are many assets with the name which we believe only helps to engage further people into cryptocurrency.
So Doge Token.
DogeCoin is technologically behind
However, it’s core technology has not been upgraded much, and it has not been updated in well over a year latest releases from 2015.
Github can be hard to manage, and understand. What I fail to fathom is how you missed that we have had 7 releases since 2015. Dogecoin Releases. Further for the coming 1.14 release there was active and ongoing communal interaction and input along the way as Dogecoin is a social consensus asset not just network/chain consensus based. Path to 1.14 Which for noting puts our public start into 1.14 barely a year beyond the 1.10 DogeParty release. (Which happened in 2016, where you state nothing has been done since 2015.)
Further as is shown there in the above posting 1.16-dev shows work. 1.17-dev Shows work as of 11 days ago even as we are waiting on final push for 1.14. This all counters your claim that there has been no releases, that nothing has been upgraded much.
If you would care to explain why your white paper states otherwise I would be willing to listen, especially given as it is rather public what we are doing, when we are doing it, and further more who is doing what. We are community based, and there are comments on both @dogecoin along with @dogecoin_devs both have been active in keeping communities updated. I sourced most of the postings for the large post from reddit, and that is only half of the updates. We have also spent time among the telegram communities, slack, discord, Steam communities, IRC communities across a span of multiple languages no less interacting, updating, and engaging with users.
Rolling back into the initial statement, "Dogecoin is technologically behind". I am curious where you see this, personally. This was gone into recently, by someone else who screamed the same things. Reality of Dogecoin Perhaps you missed this as well?
Doge Token lives on the Stellar blockchain
Stellar is the one of the fastest growing and largest blockchain platforms out there.
Stellar nodes/validators 43 have uptime in the past 24 hours.
Dogecoin Nodes This private node saw 420 other ones in 24 hours. (There are other versions listed there, they are forked coins that did not change the basis so appear on our node relay maps.) Nevermind what our public nodes see daily.
Do not take this as a hit to Stellar, it has been around since July 2014. It is old in the space which is amazing it has lasted given how many projects die. However stating that it is one of the fastest growing and largest blockchains, is a bit of a stretch. It is a rather creative stretch in reality. I understand they function differently than Dogecoin in their handling, still "largest blockchain platforms out there"; just to note.
ETH 6439 July 2015
BCH 786 BTCU 698 August 2017 / January 2016
BSV 485 November 2018
I got fairly far down the list on CMC and to continue seemed overly harsh as the trend continued.
Constant updates and support further improve the Stellar blockchain platform.
Factual they also do micro releases (small tweak releases) and they do master branch implementation and developmental work. A bit different than many things in the space.
Shibe loves Stellar.
It is a bit mutual. Dogecoin is such an interesting blockchain and serious project, that peek the advisors we have ties, old ones. Even as Stellar grew over the years more than a few of their services did drops to Dogecoin just due to the history between the assets. OneCred rip now This was one of the early services for Stellar.
PoW vs Green Tech
DogeCoin: Much Hash, Such Work
Even though DogeCoin has many orders of magnitude fewer transactions and smaller transactional value, it now exceeds over 20TH/s in terms of hashrate.
You are not wrong, in fact the other day we were one of the tops for hashrate in the entire space. It has been a long while since we were near 20TH/s though hashrate 9/22/2017 was the last time we were under 20TH/s. Just as a note, more transactions does not mean more energy spent as the energy spent is per block which contains multiple transactions.
The amount of electricity wasted to power stagnant technology negatively impacts the environment
You seem to have missed that Dogecoin is AuxPoW, this means that Dogecoin mining is a byproduct of Litecoin mining. Which is why our hashrates are generally close. This also takes the energy "waste" down to running a node, which most networks in the space have. Deciding it is wasteful simply for your narrative in Dogecoin's case; seems short sighted and a bit targeted.
and reduces mining rewards.
Given there is a very low energy cost via AuxPoW, there is not a reduction in mining rewards. Further given Dogecoin entered the "legacy" mining period we are beyond halvening, we are forever to the 10k block rewards which facilitate ongoing transactional functionality. Transaction fees, along with block rewards go to the miners; there is no reduction to the mining rewards for the miners.
Despite all this waste
Given the network is rather efficient, I do not understand the implication of waste.
DogeCoin is still theoretically much less secure than Stellar.
Based around what theoretical reference? Dogecoin is five and a half years old, in actual reality of functional existence ..Dogecoin has not had an attack that in any manner made the blockchain less secure. Further more blockchain audits, independent security reviews, network health reviews tend to be part of the listing process for the higher level compliant functioning exchanges. To date we have yet to fail one, shutter or even has a questionable passing.
You state Dogecoin is insecure in theory.. Did you miss that Dogecoin follows Bitcoin's upstream? The codebase is public, if you wish to state we are insecure I will ask you for the proof of your claims, it is a rather grave implication to make without cause. I assume you have found something everyone else has missed, care to share?
Doge Token: Such Green, Much token
Transparency and Safety
DogeCoin: Much scam, Such Sad
Remember the days of tipbots. Yes? Well we’re sure things didn’t end very well for the most avid tippers.
Pardon? I ask this honestly as we have had multiple tipbots ongoing for multiple platforms; with no issues in assorted communities that have had no issues. Surely you are aware that the tipbots, are external, third party offerings; they are unattached and uninvolved in the actual Dogecoin project. I state this because you seem to be of the mind that because something happened externally, on third party offerings, by third party developers; that it somehow reflects on Dogecoin itself.
Applications built on DogeCoin are often closed source and non-contract enforced.

These are just the ones off the top of my head.
We only mourn for the nice shibes who were victimized by these viles scammers.
Broad statements are made here in relation to all the tipbots. The one that did have issues, you seem to have missed was not actually tied to the project. Further more it was not just a tipbot that was impacted but an entire company. DogeTipBot.
Doge Token: Such Clear, Much Trust
Doge Token cannot be attacked with 51% attack and this makes us invulnerable.
You are correct, it does not take a 51% attack to take Doge Token down. It takes sadly removing two nodes from the Stellar network down to take everything, in the fullest down. Due to their more centralized nature of issuance, and operation the base network under Doge Token is publicly known to have several issues. Recently Stellar had a review by an external third party. Stellar security which goes on to detail several known issues in relation to the base functionality methods of Stellar. Understanding that on the base, anyone can claim anything noting that David himself came out to reply seems important. Further adding to this is just what KAIST is along with why it is important to note that it was not just random people making these claims.
Stellar exploit allowed 2.2bn Lumens to be created 2017. This was an onchain direct exploit.
Ongoing issues with Stellar, one which related to SDEX where Doge Token exists bug reporting.
Stellar Dex had an issue disclosed, which rather went interestingly.
Now the very important distinction here, what I have listed above are on chain issues, they are flaws exploits, problems related to the base code of functionality of Stellar itself; not third party issues. They are also public knowledge to be issues do please do not assume I am taking a swing at their project.
In the interest of disclosure there have been third party troubles relating to Stellar as well.
There was the BlackWallet hack Jan 2018 hack that resulted in 400kUSD stolen.
This makes Doge Token more trust-worthy than DogeCoin.
I will note that your entire white paper is based around false claims, baseless speculation, very easily disproved comments about the Dogecoin project, and further more implied relations which are not the actual basis of anything. We have tried in vain repeatedly to contact your project, and you have resisted.
I understand the space is huge, in fact we find it wonderful that it is so diverse. What we pause at, and what will always pause at are projects that make baseless claims, attacks, spread misinformation and bluntly put, lie. Whatever your intentions are this is not the best way to step into the space, especially given we have already had to answer for your projects comments, and we are also very curious why you took a logo without credit to the artist.
In terms of trust? Dogecoin has been here for over half a decade, our engagements are public, our codebase is public, our communications. Our communities are user driven, our third party platforms are also user driven. Where do you find fault in the trust-worthiness given who we are is rather public, we engage in the space openly as people, we are honest, direct and very proactive in relation to the entire userbase.
Sadly, the same cannot be said for you. With this it is our hope that you do correct your statements, that you do make things clearer, further more crediting the artist of your logo would also be kindly. Your methods are deceptive, your entire whitepaper is made up of libelous commentary. I do hope we can find a middle ground that does not take this much further given your stance thus far as been to mislead users by making grossly incorrect comments to further your own personal gains.

Crypto Recap March 6: BTC Sellers Take Control, Support at $10k Back in Focus

Market Summary
As seen in CoinLive News Terminal.
A reality check for crypto traders, as the return of Bitcoin sellers sent a reminder of the state of affairs in the market. An environment dominated by unconvincingly feeble buy-side interest as we've been flagging up in recent times, with Google searches for Bitcoin and other related keywords at depressed levels, where a Bitcoin transaction takes one block to confirm and with a network value assigned to Bitcoin incongruent to the number of transactions through the network.
It looks as though the damage done to the multitude of retail accounts buying into the hype of the irrational exuberance in December has forced many to jump ship on the idea of re-engaging in buying cryptos even at current discounted prices. Throw into the mix the unclear regulatory landscape, and the absence of sufficient institutional capital flows, not yet coming in the amounts to make a distinctive difference, and it's easier to understand why the overall interest in cryptos has been on the decline.
Scanning through the top cryptos, as repeatedly mentioned, Bitcoin remains the magnet the rest of the Alts complex follows, and as a result, the 6% drop in BTC value led to similar negative percentage moves, with the exception of Vechain, up 4%. The total market value saw a slide from near $470b to currently stand at $440b. Despite the reduction in Bitcoin prices, the asset's dominance holds steady above the 40%, highest in 2018, which firms up the notion of a Bitcoin cycle phase.
