Please complete the 3 i sent the links with to the end so we get 10$ reward extra. As soon as you finish they send you the coins into coin base account. Once they are in your account you can sell them instantly for $$, and transfer to your bank account, OR you can keep them on your account. EOS, and COMP have been doing really well, so they might be worth keeping. This is just a really good promotion, probably one of the better i’ve see. Its easy AF, quick, and the reward is really good. If you don’t know anything about crypto, i highly suggest you learn. It’s still very early and its growing super quick. cryptocurrency has gained a ton of attention in the past couple years and is actually starting to become a real actual currencies (already is, but according to our governments) many different types of crypto is starting to become accepted in a bunch of stores, realtors are taking as payment for a house, and colleges are even accepting as tuition. I started researching bitcoin a short amount of time after Satoshi Nakamoto released it (2009) and bought my first few in 2013 at 15$!! From early 2013 the price was about $11 USD and at the end of 2017, $20,000. But they fell and recovered as the stock market does. But the 24-hour trading Volume today, in 2020 is is INSANE ($20,690,383,231) with an even crazier market cap of $209,783,036,693, which by the middle-end of next month should reach $210 billion, possibly sooner. Its just a really smart investment, buy a little over time. Some analysts are predicting that BTC could reach anywhere from $100k to $1,000,000 for BTC in the next few years. Im not sure exactly where i would name the price in 5 years, but know there is only a limited supply of BTC. They are mined (basically just means that the transactions and blocks on the ledger or blockchain are verified) by sophisticated pieces of hardware called ASIIC miners, or some even use GPU, and CPU in expensive computers. Although CPU mining can be very inefficient anymore as the mathematical calculations and problems the miners need to solve get more and more complicated over time. This, the limited supply, the increasing interest, usability, and need for blockchain technology all add the the idea of BTC reaching such incredibly high futures. Their is a total of 20,999,976 bitcoin and that is it. With a total of 18,517,418.75 in circulation. The last BTC is estimated to be 2140. Big difference from the 18.5M mined in 10 years, right? Thats because of the halving. Anyway, I’m sure you have heard some things about BTC, probably from the media, and if it was, it probably wasn’t good. You probably heard that people buy illegal dangerous stuff off of the “Darknet” and that its completely untraceable. Or that money can be laundered through BTC. But that is hardly partly true for BTC and other cryptocurrencies, and completely true for the USD. While the blockchain doesn’t include any personal information connected to wallets (unless you want it there, or you have the wallet through a service that makes you use personal information, which many services are doing), all transactions can still be tracked and seen by anyone who has an internet connection at https://www.blockchain.com. So if the identity of one of the wallet addresses is known, it would be easier to figure the other out. But for paper, money that cannot be said... completely untraceable, has been prone to money laundering since it’s inception, can be used to purchase various drugs—hookers, guns, dynamite, and even politicians... since its inception, without a trace. The reason not just bitcoin, but i think even more exciting, is just blockchain technology and a host of things that are coming with it. It can be used for tons of things, software and can be built directly into blockchains, they can hold and process data at enormous speeds, while being extremely, extremely secure. More secure in a lot ways than banks. There are tons of new cryptocurrency projects being started everyday. For the most part, all of these projects have some sort of token integrated, because its what powers, and processes the data. If people find the project interesting or a great idea you like you’ll be able to invest in it buy buying/selling, or holding the token/coin. When these projects gain enough traction by like-minded individuals, the coin gains a value. This value can then be exchanged for other crypto, or traded directly for Fiat currencies ($,€,₽,¥,£,₩). For some examples of how wonderful the community is, and reveal what the true nature of blockchain and crypto was founded on, ill list 3 of my favorite crypto projects of 2020 so far along with a little excerpt from the white paper or other:
  1. AIDCOIN: “allows websites to embed a widget into their website and accept donations in any cryptocurrency. Any donated crypto is transferred into AID token, which is also a stable coin. At first, this might seem like not such a good thing but the more I looked into it, the more I realized accepting a stable coin might actually make more sense for a charity as it reduces their risk exposure to volatility.”
  2. BRAVE BROWSER—Privacy Internet Browser: “As far as I’m concerned, keeping people safe and protecting their privacy and security is a noble endeavor. For far too long, giants like Google and Facebook have gotten away with unethical data practices with nothing more than a slap on the wrist. They have been able to spy on their users, abuse their data and use it for whatever purpose they deem fit. Brave Browser is looking to put an end to that through the most secure browser that exists on the market today.” Basically Brave takes on the responsibility of completely protecting privacy and from ads. As an added available option, brave allows you, to watch and look at sponsored ads while you browse. So basically just a stand-in for other browsers ads, but instead you make money WITH brave. You are awarded BAT (Basic Attention Token) for your service. BAT’s are currently at .21¢.
  3. Power Ledger: Last but not least. Power Ledger is probably one of my favorite projects that is actually making a real use-case out of crypto and blockchain. They are aiming to disrupt the energy sector with a heightened focus on renewable energy. Their software allows for three core things: 1. Energy Trading (if you have excess energy from your solar panels, for example, you can trade that to your neighbor through Power Ledger). 2. Environmental commodities trading (to help for the reliable tracking of renewable energy credits). 3. Renewable asset ownership (This will allow people who cannot afford their own renewable energy set-up to invest in fractional ownership). I honestly think Power Ledger is doing God’s work and wish them all the best.
As those projects above outlined, the basic principles behind pretty much every currency and upcoming project i have ever seen is, Trust, Sharing profit with the users who help make it into what it becomes, actual transparency, no central authority (due to decentralization), and lastly i believe it gives opportunity to those who are out if opportunity’s way. This is because it reaches so far, like into oppressive governments and 3rd work countries. Anyways, i hope to have given you a little insight during this read. Crypto has so much potential to fill and has already done so much. Looking forward to seeing where else all of this goes.

Raising funds through Bitcoin Cash to create a small bakery from my home.

Raising funds through Bitcoin Cash to create a small bakery from my home.
My name is Ramón Oropeza, I am a baker by profession. For many years I have been through a bad economic moment that all it does is get worse over time. I am not a defeatist, and I always seek to get ahead. I know it's not your problem and you shouldn't have to help me. However, many of us want to make the world a better place. Many help hungry people and donate to feed them one day or perhaps a year, others to help pay the medical bills of a terminally ill patient. They are all very noble causes, but they do not really change the world, they are just a cloth of water in the pain of others. That is why I am not looking for money to pay for the medicines my mother needs, nor for you to help me repair my mother's car, which has been damaged for more than two years, nor to repair the refrigerator in my house that It has been working for over 8 years and it has been impossible for us to even repair it and we cannot dream of buying a new one. No, I am not seeking financial help for that directly. My idea and the one I want you to help me with is to build my own business with which I, together with my family, can restore our lives. Indeed you will not help thousands of people directly to satisfy their hunger for a day, instead, if you decide to give me your support, you will help me create and work for a better future and a better quality for me and my family.

https://preview.redd.it/1v2irjvbd4e51.png?width=500&format=png&auto=webp&s=40c1f5a33a42a82cd7f6a63fe602e8cf71646b28
BUSINESS PLAN
I am a baker by profession, I have worked in restaurants for more than 4 years and I understand how the gastronomic business works. Therefore, not wanting to occupy a large infrastructure and only to start from scratch. The initial vision of the business is based on a Venezuelan bakery from my home and serving my neighborhood. This is possible in the context of the pandemic and the rise of home services in my country. I've already tried this system successfully and have over 50 leads a week earning sales of $ 15 to $ 20 a week. These numbers are good here in Venezuela, since I do not have to pay taxes to be in my house and the services are relatively free (Very little is paid for the electrical and water service, although both constantly fail). Basically the expenses are in salary, maintenance and restoration of inventory. Which is covered in the cost of the product.
Sales are made before bread is made through reservations made by my neighbors. This is possible thanks to the advertising and contact made with them through social networks (Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook), as well as direct face-to-face contact. It is also possible that they come to my house to withdraw the product if they wish. Every day we send messages with the menu that corresponds to the following day. In this way, the customer selects the product and makes their reservations. The next day, the bread chosen by the customer is baked with some left over to sell customers who want bread at the last minute. It is a system that has worked and this allows us to sell fresh bread to all our customers and reduce the risk of loss of freshness of our breads and therefore of product quality. Our motto is "Good bread, always fresh".
Another important point for this initiative is to maintain customer loyalty. One strategy to follow is to create reward points to exchange them for products in a certain time. This point system would be based on Bitcoin Cash SLP tokens. This ensures that, unlike coupons or points managed by the company, each person will know how many points they have in their wallet. Another advantage offered by using SLP tokens for customers, is that they can add points to each other in a single wallet and thus claim the desired product. A direct consequence of the use of SLP tokens will be the disclosure and adoption of Bitcoin Cash among customers.
To start we have three types of bread:
Venezuelan French bread: this bread is widely consumed by our customers. It is sold in batches of 6 or 10 units. It is normally consumed for dinner or breakfast. Also, to accompany lunch.

Braided sweet bread: This is our version of a very Venezuelan bread called “piñita”. However, I always wanted to present it differently, so I knotted or braided them. This bread is consumed as a snack to accompany a coffee or a sugary drink. It is also highly consumed.

https://preview.redd.it/ma99uro0d4e51.jpg?width=1967&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e7d92ac4d73fc308f92c1def8ca440e8d4b9c6d1
Cinnamonrolls: This product is also very dear to our customers. One of the few luxuries that some can give themselves in this time of crisis. I am particularly pleased to be able to bring a little happiness through my breads.

https://preview.redd.it/ryrcj184d4e51.jpg?width=571&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=db97d1325172d414b14bb9c8e5ca95fae9ae4b13
To grow after this first phase, I would add to the menu the Venezuelan cheese braided bread and the “golfeados” (a well-loved Venezuelan bread).
Finally, to do all of this. Taking into account that the premises is my home and I will use different elements to work on it (tables, dishwashers), the services are basically free, I will not pay any more taxes than those included in the cost of raw materials. Here I have the budget for what I need to start changing my family's life through my work and with all your support:
What I can start with:
1 Gas cylinder (50 USD $) 0.175 BCH
1 3-tray oven (500 USD $) 1.76 BCH
3 trays (36 USD $) 0.126 BCH
Raw material (flour, drinking water, yeast, sugar, butter, milk, salt, cinnamon ...) ($ 100) 0.351 BCH
Total: (650 USD $) 2,412 BCH (conversion 285 USD $ / BCH)
With what could start and go to a next level:
All of the above (650 USD $)
Homemade blender or mixer ($ 475 USD)
Tray holder (300 USD $)
Small refrigerator ($ 200 USD)
Total: (1625USD $) 5.7 BCH (conversion 285USD $ / BCH).
The most significant elements are: the gas cylinder, the oven, the trays and the bread mixer.
All operations will be under my charge. My assistant will be my brother. He will be in charge of sales and customer service, under my supervision, therefore, he will make home deliveries. While I will be in charge of production and maintenance.
In conclusion, it is your decision to help me take my family forward and solve our problems by our own hands. You are not changing the world, but you are changing the world of a family. I would like to promise small dividends through the delivery of SLP Tokens that guarantees their distribution. I will be informing myself about that possibility. I say goodbye hoping for all your support, thank you very much.

Noble-Coiners Wanna Learn 'on-da-street' Commercial Development??

Jason, here's a first draft of The Offer
IndiaMikeZulu won't necessarily buy Noble Coin. We have all available fiat already invested in crypto at this second (Litecoin and Nxt mostly).
However, I think we will work in parallel with your guys simply because we are 'regional' developers, and we think that building a network of dynamic and trustworthy crypto folk here in Oz will bring better results for all concerned over time.
I sure could use some help!! And I offer almost all the information that we have gained: ATO, Aus Trac, ASIC, banks and credit unions, bullion, accountants, etc.
For example, if you can find a volunteer, let's 're-visit' all the Bitcoin-accepting-business proprietors that I interviewed last year; and ensure that the database is complete? I have spoken to people like Honest Beef and Fine Cigars and Tomcar and Handy Folks and Bitfash and Miss X Pleasure Boutique.
I pass through here every day.
Mark Blair, Unicup, W.A.
P.s.: got a first contact with a guy developing multi-crypto 'EFTPOS' machines. Details to follow.

Terrible Token Tuesday - Same Plot as Old Yeller, But the Ending Will Make You Smile.

Terrible Token Tuesday comes back this week with a new list of projects short on good ideas and sound execution as featured on ConcourseQ.
The Concourse Open Community is #buidling several interesting projects in the space. Check out our Discord for more on our community’s ethos.
And on to TTT:
LiteCoinOne - https://concourseq.io/Q/LiteCoinOne LiteCoinOne are creating an ERC-20 to get funding. After that they will need 6 months to launch their LiteCoin spin-off; meanwhile they could have forked LiteCoin in 5 mins and launched! Knowing that this part of the pitch doesn't hold, they added some exchange mambojambo. All that is bad, but the really funny part is that the project’s team photos are so badly photoshopped that they seem fake. All in all, those guys must be the least ambitious snake oil salesmen in the space, as they are just asking for $32K.
TrustLogics - https://concourseq.io/Q/TrustLogics Trust Logics is creating a decentralised LinkedIn and to make it more interesting, they threw in a pinch of their magical - yet still unknown- AI “DUBOT”. It is not clear what edge blockchain or AI provides on its competitors in the already crowded Human Resources field knowing that the team does not seem to have any blockchain or AI talent to actually help make a difference.
Denarii Cash - https://concourseq.io/Q/Denarii_Cash It is not really clear why a simple crypto wallet would need to have a token sale when there are numerous other free solutions which offer battle-tested products with a clear head start and a lot more adoption-- not to mention that this leaves Denarii’s investors with a meaningless token that does not seem to have any use-case on the platform.
LendChain - https://concourseq.io/Q/LendChain LendChain’s ambiguous team with social profiles that seem more fake than not, is clearly overpromising, and wants to build not just a lending platform, but all sorts of financial derivatives and to top it all off a proprietary blockchain. All these are clearly way out of the team’s league especially since the folks at LendChain couldn’t even manage to draft a good quality whitepaper.
CyphrCoin - https://concourseq.io/Q/CyphrCoin CyphrCoin team seem to have been living under a rock for the last 10 years, and have probably missed the news of Bitcoin launch. That’s why they earn the title of featured DD of the week. Check them out on the link!
Here are some of last week’s TTT “diligent” features with ICO’s coming soon :
Moneta Hawk - https://concourseq.io/Q/MonetaHawk Moneta Hawk and the Tripago ICO which also received a warning on ConcourseQ seem to both be operated by the same director out of a Romanian supermarket. Tripago is also a distinguished TTT alumni, but this time the shady team seems to be taking it one step further by claiming to have a partnership with us (ConcourseQ).
Bitlumens - https://concourseq.io/Q/Bitlumens Bitlumens are really into a noble cause, which is providing power to people that are off-grid, but despite all those seemingly good intentions, this project does look to be a great deal for the ICO investors, who will be giving their money to create an unsustainable model, and will likely see no returns from their investment.
Undal Technologies - https://concourseq.io/Q/Undal_Technologies The idea of crypto ATM has been used so much in the space that Undal Technologies decided to rebrand it into a “Decentralised Exchange Kiosk”. Well if that is not enough, the company intends to fit all sorts of futuristic and yet to be discovered technologies inside that kiosk, all taken from the most credible scientific source: Marvel’s Black Panther!
Gear Token - https://concourseq.io/Q/GEAR_Token Gear Token’s business plan seems underdeveloped and lacks a lot of technical details for a company that wants to produce green energy to mine cryptocurrencies. You would expect to at least have a target location, and maybe which green energy they will be using, but the team leaves both of those questions unanswered, and on top of that guarantees ROI to investors without knowing what their costs would be!
Dylyver - https://concourseq.io/Q/Dylyver Lots of discrepancies between the team’s bios and the project roadmap, while the CEO has a trail of failed projects behind him. Although the project is a ride-sharing platform, for some unknown reasons it throws in to the mix a crypto debit card, and without any factual data promises 1,000% ROI to investors.
The ConcourseQ team would like to thank everybody that helped on these DDs and all the others!

Why Crypto will Win?

If you look right now Crypto looks like a lot like another bad idea. Bitcoin is down 66% from its peak. ETH and EOS are both down 75%. Nobody is using crypto dApps. The only use of crypto seems to be, quite literally, speculating and losing money.
It reminds us exactly of where the Nasdaq was in 2003. Dot Com had crashed and WebVan (along with Kozmo and pets.com) were paraded as some of the stupidest ideas ever conceived. Amazon was widely laughed at as an overpriced “book store”. The smart money should stay invested in Barnes and Noble.
Fast forward 15 years and the Internet is easily 20 times as big. Facebook has 3 Billion users. Amazon is close to a trillion dollars in market cap. And the WebVan idea is so amazingly powerful that in just a few years Amazon Fresh has hit 2 Billion in sales and facilitated the takeover of Whole Foods.
What was the difference between WebVan and Amazon Fresh? The infrastructure layer. WebVan users didn’t have smart phones, apps, or ubiquitous broadband. So while the idea was great, it wasn’t great for 1998. And you could argue that Amazon Fresh in 2018 is not really a great idea for any other company other than Amazon.
So how does this all relate to crypto? The Bitcoin junkies argue that because the supply of Bitcoin is limited it eventually has to go up. We're not buying that. Because while the supply of Bitcoin is limited, the supply of alternative cryptocurrencies is infinite. 21 million x infinity = infinity.
But the core idea of crypto — electronic money that you can’t take away is the single biggest and best idea humans have had since the Internet. It’s so obvious just like all great ideas are. Send money to anybody, anywhere, for free instantly. End of story.
So why is it not working? Well, again, infrastructure. We need three things to make this a reality:
  1. a blockchain that is super fast
  2. a consumer software layer (wallets + apps) to access that blockchain
  3. a stable coin for value
All three of these are missing in the 2017 ecosystem. BTC and ETH are not fast enough. It takes minutes to confirm transactions.Centralized exchanges and wallets like MEW won’t work for consumer transactions. And BTC, ETH are too volatile: they can drop way too much in a single day to be used as a means of payment.
From our perspective all three of these are going to be definitively solved in the remaining 4 months of 2018. EOS works. It’s fast and reliable. It still has some quirks on RAM / account creation, but it’s 100x faster and better than ETH. The consumer app layer — just check out www.eoslynx.com and see what we are building. For stablecoins, check out TrueUSD as just one mainstream name.
The consumerization of crypto is about to start. The users are there. The time is right. This is not about scarcity of Bitcoin, this is going to be about consumer adoption.

Slack chat with James Lovejoy (VTC Lead Dev)

Thought I would share this chat I had with James Lovejoy last night. Super generous of him to provide this much access and time answering questions. I was already a HODL'er, but this solidified it.
beerfinger [1:28 AM] Just read through the entire rebranding thread in the Vertcoin subreddit. Earlier today I also watched some of Crypto Hedge's interview of James Lovejoy from last August on YouTube. I understand both sides of the rebranding argument and have tried to play devil's advocate. Right now I do believe that the argument against rebranding is stronger. Full disclosure: I've worked in marketing/advertising my whole career and just recently got into cryptos. With that said, there are two questions that keeps nagging on me:
[1:28] 1. this coin has been around since 2014, so nearly 4 years. James seems like an incredibly smart and capable chap, but I'm just going to go ahead and assume the he hasn't always been the Lead Dev while he was in high school. Presumably there was someone before him and, after he graduates and moves on to whatever it is he's going to do with his life, there will be someone after him. Yes? So, with all due respect to James, as an investor in VTC, what assurances are there that this isn't merely an interesting side-project for a brilliant MIT student with little interest/incentive in its value as an investment portfolio? If the value of this coin to James is that of a college project, that is something I as an investor would like to know.
jamesl22 [1:32 AM] Hey!
[1:33] I've been the lead dev since Nov 2014
[1:33] (while I was in high school)
[1:33] And I've kept at it through college, I certainly don't intend to go anywhere
[1:33] Plus, there are more who work on this project that just me
beerfinger [1:33 AM] 2. I've read complaints about Vertcoin from people who poopoo its usefulness. Decrying it as "just another coin trying to be Bitcoin with not much differentiating it." People don't seem to view the ASIC thing as a big enough differentiator to make VTC stand out. There seems to be a kernel of truth to that as part of the argument against rebranding seems to be a tacit acknowledgement that it should not occur until a major change in the development is launched. So my question again stems back to James' motivations and incentives here. Is this a convenient use case for some college thesis? Or is the team really working on coming up with a major change in development?
[1:34] hey James! wow, thanks so much for your quick response
[1:34] great to actually communicate with you. and I stand corrected. very impressive that you started on this so young. I can see why MIT accepted you :slightly_smiling_face:
[1:36] my questions still stand though: I'm not trying to insult you so I hope you don't take it that way, but as someone who considers VTC part of my investment portfolio, I am very curious to hear about your incentives. You clearly have noble intentions. But what is your ultimate goal? What's the end game? Is it the same as Satoshi's was? (assuming he was really one person who existed)
[1:37] Or is there something else?
jamesl22 [1:37 AM] I think it's the same as Satoshi's
[1:37] To recreate the financial system in a fairer, more distributed way
[1:37] My research at MIT is totally separate to my work on VTC, though the two are complimentary (both are in cryptocurrency)
[1:38] In my ideal world everyone runs a VTC miner and full node in their home, banks become narrow banks and clearing houses/stock exchanges are a thing of the past
[1:39] The rewards of the financial system (in the form of transaction fees) will be distributed to the people, rather than siphoned off by banks or ASIC manufacturers as happens now (edited)
goodminer [1:40 AM] :thumbsup:
beerfinger [1:40 AM] I see. That is compelling. So, being that's the case, that sounds to me like something worthy of a brand, no?
[1:41] Unless you think there are other coins on the market with the same goals. In which case, what will differentiate VTC?
jamesl22 [1:42 AM] I don't think there are any on the market with as strong of an ideology as us
[1:42] Or any that can demonstrate that it follows through on its commitments
[1:42] The way I see it, VTC went from being worth $0.01 last year to 100x that now
[1:43] I don't see how a rebrand can possible accelerate already parabolic growth
[1:43] Bear in mind, that until a few months ago we had 0 marketing, that is where our focus should be now
beerfinger [1:44 AM] Fair. I'm curious, what do you think it SHOULD be worth?
[1:44] I mean right now, at this moment.
jamesl22 [1:44 AM] I don't think I should say, the SEC might be watching us
beerfinger [1:44 AM] Not in the future.
[1:44] haha
[1:44] ok
[1:44] Can you say if you feel it is undervalued?
[1:44] or overvalued
jamesl22 [1:45 AM] I will say with confidence that 95% of the top 100 is severely overvalued
beerfinger [1:45 AM] coins you mean
jamesl22 [1:45 AM] Yes
[1:45] On coinmarketcap
[1:45] If you visit most of their websites, there is no code at all
[1:45] Yet it's worth many times what VTC is worth
[1:46] Where VTC has been established for nearly 4 years, bug free and features well demonstrated
[1:46] VTC also had LN and SegWit on main net before LTC or BTC (edited)
beerfinger [1:46 AM] Yes I mean your statement doesn't surprise me. It's a nacent market. Lots of snake oil, clearly.
[1:47] I guess to steer this back towards the branding/marketing of your coin though, you clearly feel strongly about it and have a clear vision. Do you feel that as it stands the branding conveys that sentiment?
jamesl22 [1:47 AM] When you say branding, I assume you mean "vertcoin" and the logo?
beerfinger [1:48 AM] yes. logo, color scheme, etc...
[1:48] name even
[1:49] also to clarify one point, when I say that you clearly feel strongly about it, the "it" refers to your coin (not the marketing of it)
jamesl22 [1:49 AM] I think it's largely arbitrary
beerfinger [1:49 AM] why is that
jamesl22 [1:49 AM] Most coin names have no meaning whatsoever
[1:49] Google, the largest tech company in the world has a silly name
[1:50] Litecoin (whose name ought to imply it has fewer features) is #4
beerfinger [1:51 AM] I wouldn't underestimate the amount of strategy that went into branding Google (and continues to this day)
jamesl22 [1:51 AM] What's most important is the pitch, how can you convince someone who knows nothing about the technicals behind cryptocurrency, that ASIC resistance and decentralisation is important?
[1:51] Yes, but the original branding was arbitrary and haphazard
[1:52] Yet the technology spoke for itself
[1:52] Now it's in the dictionary
[1:53] Spending lots of time and money on a new name/logo, trying to get community consensus on that and then redesigning the website/subreddit/wallets/other services to reflect the changes is not where I think we should focus our small resources
[1:54] My goal over the next year or two is to take VTC from speculative value to real-world value
[1:54] So point of sale, ease of use, that's the focus now
[1:55] I aim to over time provide complete solutions for merchants to implement VTC at point of sale, for laymen to set up nodes and miners in their homes
[1:55] As well as potentially enterprise support if we get big enough
beerfinger [1:55 AM] It sounds like this is your intended career path then, yes?
jamesl22 [1:55 AM] In some shape or form, yes
beerfinger [1:55 AM] Wonderful
[1:55] When do you graduate, James?
[1:55] If you don't mind me asking
slackbot Custom Response [1:55 AM] I AM talking to you aren't I !
jamesl22 [1:56 AM] Charlie Lee worked at Coinbase for several years before returning to LTC a month or two ago
[1:56] 2019
beerfinger [1:56 AM] So you're a Sophomore? Or are you in graduate school?
jamesl22 [1:57 AM] Junior
chuymgzz [1:58 AM] @beerfinger can you imagine when people first heard the word "dollar" like WTF is a dollar where did it actually came from. It actually comes from Czech joachimsthaler, which became shortened in common usage to thaler or taler. Don't pay much attention to the name Vertcoin, just take a look at the tech. If you buy into this coin's ideology, you will actually start to like the name.
jin [1:58 AM] Hey guys :slightly_smiling_face:
[1:59] @chuymgzz but not everyone looks purely at the tech, if we look at the top 100 coins, you would know whats going on :stuck_out_tongue:
beerfinger [1:59 AM] Cool well thanks for indulging me, James. I really appreciate it. Hopefully this conversation continues in the future. While your probably right that right now is probably not the right time, that doesn't mean at some point in the future it won't be. In the meantime, I'll take comfort in the knowledge that I've invested in a worthy cause.
chuymgzz [1:59 AM] Longer term only the functional ones and the ones that deliver will survive and a whole ecosystem will be built around it
jin [1:59 AM] buzz and hype is unfortunately a large part of it
beerfinger [2:00 AM] *you're
jin [2:00 AM] that is true, but without marketing to draw in attention (which leads to usage and so on etc) it will be difficult for a functional one to survive even
beerfinger [2:07 AM] @james122 One more thing: how do you feel about regulation? Pro or con? Do you feel that the idea of nation states like the US and China (ergo the ICO ban) taking it upon themselves to place restrictions on the market to try and make them safer is anathema to the idea of decentralization? Are you a full on libertarian in that respect? Or do you welcome regulation because it'll separate the wheat from the chaff?
jamesl22 [2:07 AM] I think we need a sane amount of regulation
[2:08] ICOs are clearly illegal imo
[2:08] Unless they are performed under the same rules as an IPO
[2:09] Plus I don't want to create a safe harbour for child pornographers, people traffickers and terrorists to store their money
[2:09] However I do think the state has no right to spy on you without a warrant (edited)
beerfinger [2:09 AM] You mean you don't want to be Monero? :slightly_smiling_face:
jamesl22 [2:09 AM] No
[2:10] I will pursue privacy features that make the pseudoanonymity provided by the blockchain easier for people to use effectively
[2:11] That way, it is not obvious to anyone your holdings or transactions publicly (edited)
[2:11] But things like sting operations would still be theoretically possible
beerfinger [2:13 AM] Love it. I still feel the branding thing will need to be revisited at some point. I don't know what that means, exactly. Whether its as small as a font change to something bigger like a new color scheme, logo or even name, I'm not sure of. The ideology is strong, but as it stands Vertcoin doesn't have a clear differentiator in the market. I'm not sure that matters so much yet at this time, but it will.
[2:15] You clearly have a strong vision, I'm just not sure it's being communicated effectively yet. Hence, haters who say Vertcoin is just trying to be another Bitcoin.
workstation [2:15 AM] beerfinger might be a huge whale sniffing out Vertcoin before a huge loadup. Not that, that's a bad thing :stuck_out_tongue:
beerfinger [2:15 AM] haha... I wish
jamesl22 [2:16 AM] Vertcoin is trying to be another Bitcoin lol
[2:16] It's picking up where Bitcoin left off
[2:16] If people want a decentralised cryptocurrency, they should use Vertcoin
[2:17] Bitcoin just isn't one anymore
[2:17] Neither is Litecoin (edited)
beerfinger [2:20 AM] Semantics really, but if that's the case then that means Vertcoin isn't trying to be another Bitcoin. Bitcoin is already Bitcoin, which is a coin that did not fulfill it's promises. Vertcoin, on the other hand, like you said picks up where Bitcoin left off. I'm not sure that's being communicated by the brand (yet). Doing so may have nothing to do with rebranding (unless rebranding generates a bigger social following who then helps you communicate that).
workstation [2:20 AM] You've continued on a great coin James and no doubt Vertcoin has great features vs other coins, however without widespread use and adoption, Vertcoin might just become another coin without much use. The marketing side is sometimes even more important than the development side. Just need to look at history for that. E.g. Early version of Windows was buggy, bluescreen of death plagued it. But with heaps of $$ and marketing, Windows is pretty rock solid these days.
atetnowski [2:21 AM] joined #marketing.
jamesl22 [2:22 AM] Yes, agreed to both statements
[2:22] We're working on it, but it takes time and money
[2:23] But really, adoption is pointless until point of sale works properly
[2:23] When you can get it into people's physical wallets, or phone and they can spend it in a store, that's when it takes off (edited)
[2:23] Walmart, Target, all the big retailers hate Visa and Mastercard
workstation [2:24 AM] Thats a long way off... Even Apple and Samsung are struggling in that area
jamesl22 [2:24 AM] They would love a solution that opted them out of having to pay their fees
beerfinger [2:25 AM] @workstation To play devil's advocate for one sec, most successful people in the world don't achieve success because they tried to achieve success. Success is merely a byproduct of their passion. I do believe that James' commitment to the ideology can be sufficient. But it is true that the branding should communicate his vision. That is a constant conversation, too.
workstation [2:25 AM] yes, true
jamesl22 [2:26 AM] What we really need is talented content creators to make compelling media that explains the vision in a layman friendly way
[2:26] Thus far the message has been far too technical
[2:26] But in the past, the space was mostly populated by technical people so that is understandable
[2:26] It is only in the last 6 months that the general public has started to get involved
[2:27] Sadly "ASIC resistance" doesn't speak to them
beerfinger [2:27 AM] @james122 While it's true that universal adoption is key, you can say that about ANY coin. Even dogecoin would suddenly become a real coin if everyone up and decided to start using it one day. What's your strategy for making VTC that coin?
jamesl22 [2:27 AM] Whereas I think taking power from banks, chinese miners and giving it back to the people can be far more compelling
workstation [2:27 AM] We take Visa and Mastercard at our stores. We only do it because it boosts sales. People these days are all borrowing on credit because they don't have enough.... Paying on their CC# lets them buy things now (instant gratification) and slowly pay later. They managed to get banks on board because they make so much money on the interest. There is a clear reason why those cards satisfy a demand. We get charged about 1.5% by VISA/MC. To be honest, it's not a real deal breaker.
beerfinger [2:27 AM] haha, well, james you're talking to the right guy :slightly_smiling_face:
[2:28] My career is content creation
[2:28] I have nearly 20 years producing commercials and (lately) social content for global brands
mikevert [2:29 AM] joined #marketing.
beerfinger [2:29 AM] I would be happy to consult and provide any assistance I can
[2:29] "taking power from banks, chinese miners and giving it back to the people can be far more compelling" - that's your modus operandi
[2:29] you can definitely tell that story in a compelling way
[2:30] Question: have any crypto's ever created any sort of ad before? Even just for social content? (sorry, I'm new to this space)
jamesl22 [2:30 AM] Well we'd obviously be grateful for your assistance
[2:31] I'd imagine so, though I don't follow many other coins' social media very much
goodminer [2:31 AM] @beerfinger lets chat :smile: We've been working on a lot of initiatives over the last few weeks
jamesl22 [2:31 AM] @workstation 1.5% to a huge retailer is a large sum of money though
workstation [2:35 AM] I don't see any coin being widely used to be honest. They fluctuate way too much. Say a typical consumer whose after tax salary is $1000/week.. He buys groceries at the store for $1/Liter. This is simple maths for him, he knows it's going to cost $1 each week, inflation may make it rise to $1.10 next year, but he understands that. With coins, the price of his milk is too hard to calculate.
[2:37] Why would Bob switch to using coins, when Visa/MC give him so much more? He doesnt pay the processing fee (1.5%), he gets free credit (these days, banks will easily approve 10k credits). Why would he switch to Vertcoin?
jamesl22 [2:37 AM] @workstation, volatility is high because market volume is low
[2:38] I think it will take another financial crisis or two though before people start to abandon fractional reserve banking (edited)
workstation [2:42 AM] As long as bob gets his paycheck, he's not going to care what happens at the fed
jamesl22 [2:43 AM] Bob ain't gunna get his paycheck one day though
[2:44] Because the credit ponzi scheme economy will have collapsed
workstation [2:48 AM] yes, the fed can print whatever it wants out of thin air... But its backed by US tax payers to the tune of 2+ trillion/year with most banks adhering to loan capital requirements. E.g. they need a certain amount of money deposited before they can loan more money out. What is Bitcoin/alt coins backed by? Seems like its somewhat of a ponzi scheme now, with everyone piling in thinking it will go up forever. I get that BTC is backed by real energy usage/capital requirements to mine it (asic equipment, datacenters, etc), so its more "real" than $1 USD, but they both service a purpose.
axelfoley75 [2:49 AM] joined #marketing.
workstation [2:51 AM] but whats the end goal because it seems they all become ponzi schemes. The only true coin will be one that will not allow any fiats be converted to to coin.
[2:51] the only way to earn a coin, would be to mine it, wouldn't you think that that would be the truest coin?
[2:52] right now people are just moving wads of fiat money into coins/alt coins, thereby skewing everything.
beerfinger [2:54 AM] just jumping in here with one last comment before I go to sleep: money, whether we're talking salt, precious metals, fiat currency, or cryptos, is just something that we all agree to prescribe a value to. That being the case, how are you going to stop someone from trading that value for something they want? If someone wants to trade their cryptos for chickens, a latte, USD or anything else, they're going to do it. No point in trying to regulate what people spend their money on or how they do it. Seems the antithesis of the whole decentralization thing anyway
workstation [2:57 AM] true
aegisker [3:02 AM] I belive when crypto matures, has fast and easy payments solutions, volume will rise and price will be more stable. Current price is speculation due to news and new development. I dont belive that after 10 years we will be seeing such swings.
beerfinger [3:04 AM] sorry keep thinking of new stuff... @jamesl22 your point about POS is salient. What's your perspective on coins like TenX that try to address that with payment platforms and cards?
[3:05] is that what you mean? nuts & bolts, how would Vertcoin become a POS option?
aegisker [3:06 AM] How is usdt keeping its price around usd?
beerfinger [3:07 AM] don't they just keep up with USD inflation by making sure there's an equal amount of tokens to USD in the market at any given point?
jamesl22 [3:07 AM] Integration of LN and AS is key
[3:07] Then providing some hardware or software solution to integrate with payment processors
[3:07] I haven't looked at tenx
beerfinger [3:07 AM] so Vertcoin IS actively pursuing this then
[3:08] interesting
[3:09] perhaps there's some way to leverage things like ApplePay
jamesl22 [3:09 AM] I doubt it
[3:09] ApplePay's design is fundamentally different
beerfinger [3:09 AM] I mean it doesn't have to be ApplePay itself. Can be a separate app
lucky [3:09 AM] Having bitcoin or altcoins tied to your debit card isn't unbelievable
jamesl22 [3:10 AM] Of course not
[3:10] But it is suboptimal
beerfinger [3:10 AM] yeah sort of kills the whole decentralization thing
lucky [3:10 AM] in fact if we are going the whole hog and saying fiat collapsed. You'd be silly to think the banks would standby and let crypto take over without them
beerfinger [3:10 AM] now we're relying on banks again
lucky [3:11 AM] At the first sign of crypto succeeding fiat. Banks will take over
[3:11] Because they can trade their fiat to coin
[3:11] Government too
aegisker [3:12 AM] Well, banks issues debt, whole market is built around debt. Crypto would take that away
[3:12] This will be hardest transition
jamesl22 [3:12 AM] If the crypto market ever gets to say $1tril, the banks will use their lobbyist army to squash it as best they can
lucky [3:13 AM] Is it not possible crypto gets immediately regulated into the banking system as soon as it passed fiat in some way
jamesl22 [3:13 AM] They don't care right now because the space is tiny compared to their own equity
lucky [3:13 AM] Yes exactly James
beerfinger [3:13 AM] i like the idea of leveraging NFC tech as a way to introduce crypto to POS purchases... everyone already has a smart phone so no need to reinvent the wheel... it's basically just an app
lucky [3:13 AM] If finance is going to change politics needs to too
[3:14] Nfc seems like the way. Yeag
[3:14] Lots of the android wallets leverage it
aegisker [3:14 AM] No need for nfc, nfc was kinda overhyped. Qr codes can work equally good
jamesl22 [3:14 AM] @beerfinger I think LN will allow us to achieve that
lucky [3:14 AM] Lol qr
[3:14] Who has ever scanned a qr....
jamesl22 [3:14 AM] We just need a hardware implementation for the reader
beerfinger [3:14 AM] sorry james, what's LN?
lucky [3:14 AM] Apple made sure qr never worked
jamesl22 [3:14 AM] Lightning Network
beerfinger [3:14 AM] ah
aegisker [3:15 AM] If u use your phone, why complicate with nfc, is there a security benefit?
beerfinger [3:15 AM] the infrastructure is there... most readers i come across these days are already NFC compliant
jamesl22 [3:15 AM] QR can work, but requires a high res display in the POS device
[3:15] Which would increase costs
[3:15] NFC is cheap af
lucky [3:16 AM] Yep. Qr is extremely requirement heavy
aegisker [3:16 AM] For example, pub: you get check with qr. U pay with your phone. Waiter sees on his computer that its payed.
lucky [3:16 AM] Look at Asia and south America
[3:16] Nobody can read qr
aegisker [3:17 AM] I europe all checks already have qrs for tax checking
lucky [3:17 AM] I work in global marketing. Qr is completely unadopted in the real world
[3:17] Yes in no public scenario qr is used
aegisker [3:17 AM] Where you from?
lucky [3:17 AM] Uk
[3:19] A decade in marketing I can tell you for sure Joe public doesn't scan qr codes
[3:19] James is right. We need an alternative hardware solution
[3:19] And I think I unique piece of tech in public would drive massive interest
aegisker [3:20 AM] In slovenia, croatia, austria(i tjink) there is law that all transactions in coffeeshops or shops(everything with fiat transaction) is sent to tax authority as soon as check is printed. U get qr code on your check, so you can check if tax s paid for your service. This is to prevent black markets and unauthorized sellers. Works pretty well. If you frequently scan qrs you can get some bonuses..
[3:21] Public got used to this pretty fast.
lucky [3:21 AM] So there's an incentive
aegisker [3:21 AM] So also you could print qr shop wallet addr.
lucky [3:21 AM] Kind of skews the ease of adoption stat we are looking for
aegisker [3:22 AM] Costz nothing
lucky [3:22 AM] Costs a smartphone with a quick camera
[3:22] How about in a dark club
beerfinger [3:23 AM] I came tonight with many questions about Vertcoin. Namely the incentives of the Devs and how it differentiated itself in the marketplace. All of those questions have been answered as best as I could have hoped. The only thing left is figuring out a way to tell that story. @jamesl22, all of the things you've said tonight are reassuring and exciting. They provide great promise for the future of this coin and even more - your goals, if realized, are truly category shifting. This is such a compelling story. TELL IT!
lucky [3:23 AM] Asking every transaction to require an in focus photo capability is insane, imo
aegisker [3:23 AM] uploaded and commented on this image: IMG_20170908_092307.jpg 1 Comment Thats how it looks
lucky [3:23 AM] We need something similar to a contactless debit card
[3:24] Good luck scanning that in the dark with a £100 smartphone. Though.
aegisker [3:24 AM] For starters this is easiest solution for early adoption (edited)
workstation [3:25 AM] why not something short like vCoin. Then u could make it go off V=Vendetta, sort of has a nice mystery, anti establishment
aegisker [3:25 AM] You just need plugin for your pos software that checks your crypto wallet for received funds
[3:26] Imo this is easiest way to implement first public purchases of beer or coffee
beerfinger [3:26 AM] by the way, less is more when it comes to branding
[3:26] look at apple
[3:26] i love this example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUXnJraKM3k YouTube Brant Walsh Microsoft Re-Designs the iPod Packaging
[3:31] and there's always something to be said for ad wars... apple's david vs goliath attack ads vs microsoft is what put them back on the map
[3:31] that could be a great angle for Vertcoin... go after Bitcoin
[3:31] make fun of it the way Jobs poked at Gates
[3:32] that's just my 2 Vertcoins

Jack M | 09/28/18 Monero can be used by anyone, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual preferences.

“Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights and keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose. To that high concept there can be no end save victory.” Franklin D. Roosevelt The Four Freedoms , January 6, 1941

The end of World War II marked the world's ultimate victory for freedom (so far). No longer could those who stood for freedom become complacent, as the adage "freedom is not free" was summarily cemented in the world's minds. To this day, the very same basic freedoms are under heavy attack.
Though the medium of oppression has changed to a digital landscape, the same principles of freedom remain. The freedoms outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, penned by the United Nations in 1948, are the very same ones under attack in our increasingly digitized world. The tricks of human rights violators are the same as they ever were.
Let's take a look at one precept in the declaration: Article 12
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.

The right to privacy is important to freedom because
  • Constant surveillance erodes the principle of presumption of innocence
  • Constant surveillance chills freedom of expression, especially in digital forms
  • Privacy helps citizens' rights to freedom of movement and association
This is where Monero shines. Privacy in your use of money forms an essential core of Article 12. How can you express your freedoms to donate to noble causes you believe in if you are concerned that these causes do not fit with an authority's narrative?

The DOJ's Abuse of Power: Barrett Brown's Example for Anonymous Money

For example, let's take a look at the case of Barret Brown, a revolutionary journalist who caught the ire of US Federal Authorities. He's the guy who had the book thrown at him in court for merely sharing a hyperlink to a leaked document, hosted online elsewhere.
When the courts sentenced him, most knew it was excessive. An organic movement, “Free Barrett Brown,” started to raise funds to pay his attorney's fees. The extensive court process and appeals, over a long stretch of time, would have left most people penniless. The organization only wanted to ease Brown's financial pain caused by a court who clearly had it out for him. Slapped with a hefty prison sentence and an $800,000 fine for Stratfor, the plaintiff, Brown states:, “I will spend the rest of my life in a strange state of post-cyberpunk indentured servitude to an amoral private intelligence firm that’s perhaps best known for having spied on Bhopal activists on behalf of Dow Chemical. That the prosecution did not quite manage to articulate how I did any damage to this particular company did not seem to dissuade U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay in this matter.”
So the fundraising was clearly justified for such an inhumane penalty. However, it came to light that the FBI and DOJ kept watch over the bank account set aside for donors. In fact, they were able to discover the real identity of every donor. For a while, no one knew that the surveillance was even occurring. With no warrant served, the FBI and DOJ uncovered who donated to a perfectly legitimate and legal cause. This abuse of power falls well within "arbitrary interference" of donors' privacy.

Privacy to YOUR Value, Currency, and Worth

Your money is for your eyes only and those whom you allow to see. Over time, as the financial system becomes monopolized and digitized, we've grown to accept that banks and governments can see our every credit card swipe, checking account balances, and cash withdrawals. This is a slippery slope. Everyone has too freely welcomed oversight as an intrusion into their day-to-day lives, when resistance would have been the more logical response.
We've already witnessed, over and over, government efforts to put the entire globe under surveillance, with the ruling over the UK's spying regime as the latest example. Even as these shocking covert operations are made public, the perpetrators continue to engage in these violations, often by switching to different methods.

Fungibility As Surveillance Resistance

Monero solves the problem of prying eyes, thanks primarily to its fungibility. The fungibility feature makes your transactions anonymous so you can express your freedoms without big brother watching. Whether big brother is financial institutions, government, or your workplace, Monero ensures that you keep your money business private, as intended.
In contrast to Monero, Bitcoin is classified as non-fungible, meaning every coin's history can be traced back to its point of creation (when it was first mined). Every wallet address that has transacted with a coin can be traced on the public ledger. When a coin was used in illegal activities in the past, that becomes part of the coin's history.
Monero, instead, removes this problem of a permanent, public ledger. One Monero (XMR) can be substituted for any other with the same value. That means there is no unique identifier which can tie a single XMR coin's transactions through time. Additionally, there is no concept of having a less “pure” XMR because a tainted history is now no longer a problem.
Private transactions and storage of wealth, for both individuals and businesses, will remain an important right for generations to come. Over and over, we've seen governments who take advantage of the powers given to them, spying on their own citizens and on the citizens in other nations who have not yet broken any laws. Governments use these privacy-killing powers in order to neutralize so-called dangerous groups, activists, and causes.
If governments have already shown a willingness to tap into these groups' lifeblood, money, there will not be much freedom of expression to protect. Either covertly or overtly, a government can drain the privacies that help groups thrive.

What We Learned from World War II: No One Should Be Excluded from Exercising Their Rights

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Martin Luther King Jr.
The horrors of WWII showed the putrid depths of hatred and prejudice. Removing protections of rights from certain groups of people undermines all core freedoms described in the Declaration of Human Rights.
As a testament to rights for all people, Monero can be used by anyone, regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual preferences. The Monero network and the community welcome all and ask no one to submit to arbitrary rules.
As Article 2 states in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Letting anyone, from all parts of the globe, take advantage of inalienable freedoms is the starting point. Monero's got that covered and so much more. Monero lets people suffocated by the world's most autocratic governments gain a new right: Freedom to use value as they see fit. Sometimes, small drips of freedom can begin a huge wave of revolution.
As the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. knew, everyone on earth is connected in a human fabric. Protecting the rights of marginalized groups ultimately protects our rights too. Monero reinforces the ultimate truth that we are all so similar, and our human rights defend against the division and hatred that could tear us apart.

100% Inheritance Tax?

Before downvoting, please hear me out, I have a theory.
I was teasing this idea of a 100% inheritance tax in the past as a thought experiment then I see that people are now really advocating for this it surprized me.
My premise was that I was willing to accept a 100% inheritance tax, if all other taxes are eliminated, all of them.
 
So only a 100% inheritance tax, no other taxes at all. There are a few justifications for this:
So I really liked the idea, it sounds good on the surface, but then I realized there is a massive problem with it, rather with it’s implementation instead of the concept.
 

1) What if the rich guy donates away his wealth 1 week before his death?

I mean people like Carnegie who donated a lot of money away to libraries and things like that. What if they are on their deathbed and sign away their wealth to a bunch of charities and leave some for their kids.
So the kids get like 10-20% to not be spoiled, and 80% is donated to various charities that help humanity?
So instead of 80% of the wealth being given to a competent charity (most charities have a 90% efficiency) we should give it to useless corrupt bureaucrats who will mostly steal it or waste it away on crappy project. Government efficiency has to be around 20%, their overhead and corruption expenses are massive.
 

2) What if the wealth is already in “autopilot”?

Well certainly most billionaire wealths are on autopilot. I am not talking about bond markets, which are not beneficial, but stock markets and commodity markets.
So billions and billions are invested in companies that generate positive contributions to the economy and society. Most notably biotech is hot now, they are now curing a lot of disabilities.
I believe they already found cures for Down syndrome and they are now experimenting with nerve controlled prosthetics for the disabled people. That is very beneficial.
We should instead loot that out, and waste it on useless social programs like creating tranny bathrooms and tearing down statues? Insane.
 
 
So at the end of the day it looks like a total inheritance tax would pretty much destroy the economy as it would decimate the capital markets and it would halt economic and social progress.
But I guess the SJW don’t really care about actual solutions, they just want the money because they are greedy.
 
 
Also you can’t really compell people to do anything, that would violate the NAP.
 
 

Bitcoin

Now there is actually a way this might happen voluntarily and it is already happening.
People losing their Bitcoin private keys is literally equivalent to a 100% inheritance tax. There were already cases where a guy owned Bitcoin, he died and his wallet was encrypted and his family members didn’t know the key.
Recovering those coins is impossible. So this is like a 100% inheritance tax.
What happens? Well if the Bitcoins are not spent and locket in that address forever, that makes every other Bitcoin more valuable and scarce, therefore bumping the price higher.
In fact it actually sets a minimum threshold to the price of BTC, since if everyone would theoretically sell their coins now, and the market depth would be deep enough to cover that, then the price would crash to 0$.
But if probably >2,000,000 coins (including those of Satoshi which are presumably immovable) are locked eternally, that literally means a wealth redistribution to every other BTC holder, and the price can’t go beyond a certain level.
So in Bitcoin this is already happening, and people should do studies about this since it’s a fascinating event.
So losing a BTC wallet is a “voluntary 100% inheritance tax” and it actually helps the deflationary aspect.
 
 
So instead of physically redistributing the assets themselves, which would be theft and a violation of NAP, the value is redistributed which is not, and it’s an interesting phenomena.

Thermodynamics & Silent Weapons for Secret Wars or Crypto Anarchy 101: Statists Failing & Anarchists Thriving

Crypto Anarchy 101: Statists Failing & Anarchists Thriving
The black-market, the free-market, is what kept people alive throughout the worst of oppressions. The black market has been the art of surviving amidst all types of tyrannies and slaveries. The black market, aka System D, is something that everyone in the world will need to start getting comfortable with. CryptoAnarchy is the ultimate manifestation of complete market freedom, and it is here to stay.
Libertarians are beginning to finally realize their incredible advantage within this new market environment. The unfortunate statist masses have been programmed to feel uncomfortable with the mere idea of complete market freedom. Keep in mind that as of 2009, half of the world’s workers- around 1.8 billion – were employed by System D. The black market is only expected to grow even more so with the incentive structures being built out in order to advance the technological advancements of cryptography.
Humanity has never experienced a true free-market until now. For the first time in history one is beginning to take shape. The traditional business sector is beginning to realize that they are not even mentally equipped for the implications of having applied cryptography that is powered by market incentives. This is evident in their trite attempts at integrating these new technologies with traditional banking and financial systems. Their lack of creativity, and dependence on government, is a clear testament to how much they will be hurt in the coming future.
Statists Double Down after Failure: Tether and Stablecoins
Many within the crypto space have attempted to bridge the gap between legacy banking and cryptocurrencies. Amongst the various attempts at capitalizing with these new technologies, the idea of a stablecoin entered the space via Tether (USDT).
A stable coin is a cryptocurrency that is pegged on a 1 to 1 ratio to the US dollar, or any other asset- like gold- or fiat. Tether operated as a stable coin pegged to the US dollar on a 1 to 1 ratio. The biggest attribute behind stablecoins resided in their ability to provide stability in an otherwise volatile market.
For a long time many within the crypto space were curious about Tether’s means of operating with USD. Earlier this year TDV was the first entity to exclusively reported to its subscribers the origin of Tether’s “secret sauce;” fractional reserve banking.
The laws of fractional reserve banking allowed the Noble Bank of Puerto Rico to provide Tether with the legal means of operating as a stable coin pegged to the US dollar. The Noble Bank recently went bankrupt due to being insolvent. Noble Bank was the bank of Bitfinex and Tether. As a result, Tether and Bitfinex ended their relationship with Noble Bank.
It is important that you as a subscriber move your crypto out of Bitfinex. You should never keep your cryptoin exchanges. When you do this you don’t actually control the private keys of your coins.
(If you are an active trader, please consider using Bisq. Bisq is an open source decentralized exchange that does not control your private keys while trading. It is the most Anarchist exchange in the market right now.)
After losing its partnership with Noble Bank, Bitfinex began banking with HSBC. On October 15th, Bitfinex tweeted that their fiat deposit system was re-enabled. Overall, Bitfinex is still in the midst of reorganizing itself as an exchange with proper banking liquidity. For this reason we are of the opinion that it is best to stay away from Bitfinex until they are more solvent in their banking partnerships.
Tether (USDT) on the other hand is suffering from a lack of proper banking structures. Binance paused all USDT withdrawals and KuCoin, the exchange, also paused USDT deposits and withdrawals.
Tether is currently at around 2.1bn dollar market cap. Tether holders are having a difficult time cashing out of their Tether for USD. It is expected that unless Tether gets its banking situation sorted out, we will see movement out of Tether. This situation has caused the price of Tether to hit a low of $0.90 to the USD. As of writing this, Tether is trading at around $0.97 to the dollar.
The situation for Tether is dire at the present moment. We expect to see many Tether holders drop their Tether for Bitcoin, or other more cryptographically secure cryptocurrencies. This will more than likely be one of the main strategies that will be implemented in order to cash out of Tether.
This overall situation is once again showing us how unstable things are when dealing with fiat. We hope for the market to realize that there is more security in cryptocurrencies than there is in fiat backed stablecoins. Stablecoins will always have the instability of the fiat currencies that they are pegged to. The time will eventually come when people will realize that cryptocurrencies are a better store of value than stablecoins.
In spite of all of the issues circulating Tether, statist entrepreneurs are doubling down on their desire for stablecoins. We are seeing the beginning of what we believe will be a trend in the upcoming future; that is, stable coins pegged to various countries’ fiat and assets like precious metals. The new USD stablecoins recently announced to the market are GeminiUSD, TrueUSD, and Paxos Standard.
Volatility as a Sign of Life in the Market
Contrary to the statist perception on volatility, one can also view volatility in crypto as proper to a market that is fully alive. Crypto, for the first time in history, freed the market from bankster manipulation. Arguably, volatility is to be expected in an unregulated free-market where everyone in the world is for the first time welcomed to participate.
In comparison to the legacy financial system, crypto is fully alive while the former is handicapped by regulations, coercion, and disconnected from true free-market signals. That is, volatility signals of a free-market that breathes freely for the first time. Volatility is indicative of a market that is fully alive.
The desire for individuals to attach crypto to the legacy financial system, under the pretense of “less volatility,” is indicative of individuals that will have a hard time operating outside the bounds of regulation and government coercion. As long as we have statists uncomfortable with Anarchy, we will have stablecoins pegged to fiat.
Various Libertarian entrepreneurs are also beginning to dabble with the idea of a stablecoin that is pegged to precious metals. The challenge of these projects will be the same regulation that oversees fiat. Remember that the difference offered to the world by cryptocurrencies resides in crypto’s ability to operate freely within System D, without regulation. It is this new market, the true free-market, that for the first time is unstoppable.
Bitfinex’s Effect on EOS
Bitfinex is one of the entities that holds the greatest amount of votes for EOS Block Producers (BPs). For this and other reasons, we are currently expecting a shakeup of votes for selected top BPs. It is important that you remain attentive to the happenings within EOS and move your votes accordingly.
We will soon be coming out with more details on our perceptions regarding various BPs.
There are various discussions regarding BPs pending arbitration. This is a good thing. All shakeups lead us closer to more transparency and accountability. This should not directly affect the price of EOS, aside from what will result from the expected FUD of future BP shake-ups.
The Resilience of CryptoAnarchy after Blockstream’s Fake Sidechain
Amongst the various innovations within Bitcoin, sidechains have- for the past 5 years- existed as one of the holy grails of innovation. Blockstream, as a company, was put together to manifest sidechains. They sold us the concept of a sidechain as they were sourcing capital during their first rounds of investment; this was in October of 2014.
Sidechains were supposed to be delivered by Blockstream as a way to make Bitcoin innovation competitive to that of altcoin innovation. Sidechains were supposed to be “the Altcoin killer.”
After all of this time, Blockstream only delivered Liquid - which is not a sidechain- and called it a “sidechain.” That is, Liquid is not a sidechain when properly defined. Liquid is a multi-signature layer that allows for multiple exchanges to pool their money together to transfer funds amongst themselves. Liquid is not a true sidechain, it is more precisely a multi-signature wallet.
Calling Liquid a “sidechain” was just a marketing scheme by Blockstream in order to impress the illusion that they had delivered what they had promised. They didn’t. Blockstream gave up in attempting to create a true sidechain and created a multi-signature wallet instead. Keep in mind that Liquid is a “private sidechain.” Note that a proper sidechain ought to be made with open-source innovation in mind. Many of us see the actions of Blockstream as a bait and switch marketing scheme.
(For the rest of this article I will use the words “Drivechains” and “sidechains” interchangeably as synonyms. Drivechains are what sidechains originally were supposed to be- according to the original Blockstream Sidechain white paper. Blockstream’s bait and switch marketing scheme led to them calling “sidechain” a multisignature wallet that is not at all what they promoted on their white paper. Paul Sztorc, in an attempt to differentiate himself from the Blockstream perversion of the word “sidechains,” called his development of true sidechains “Drivechains.”)
Drivechain Sidechains
Paul Sztorc, the creator of decentralized prediction markets, was very much looking forward to Blockstream’s creation of sidechains. It was his hope that his decentralized prediction market would run as a Bitcoin sidechain. At about the end of 2015 Sztorc was done with BitcoinHiveMind, his decentralized predictions market (previously known as TruthCoin).
After realizing that Blockstream was not going to deliver on sidechains, as promised, Sztorc felt he needed to build it himself. The creation of his Drivechains started off as a means to an end for Sztorc; he needed true Sidechains for his decentralized predictions market- so he build it himself.
On September 24, 2018 Paul Sztorc announced the launch of the first Drivechain release. This release was accompanied with fervent followingof old-school Bitcoiners that immediately jumped into experimenting with Drivechains on the testnet known as “Testdrive.”
The Drivechain protocol is an alternative to the sidechain project originally proposed by Blockstream. It is a simpler design that enables blockchain compatibility in which the system still utilizes the same 21 million bitcoin ruleset- the Nakamoto consensus.
Drivechains are intended to allow for permissionless innovation without diluting or challenging the value of the main cryptocurrency. Contrary to other means of innovation within crypto, any innovation that comes from a Drivechain sidechain actually adds value to the Bitcoin protocol- for it does not dilute the main cryptocurrency. Satoshi vaguely discussed the importance of the ideas of sidechains and multi-blockchain connectivity on June 17, 2010.
This creation, of providing varied market options, make infighting and political discourses regarding consensus upgrades now seem infantile. Drivechains will provide the market with ongoing competitive solutions for blockchain development. Investors will now be exposed to options that would otherwise have been shunned in a less free environment.
The strategic advantage of Drivechain sidechains is that they will offer investors various options in the form of alternative chains. It is important to keep in mind that Drivechains are available for blockchains with the same UTXO set. That is, Drivechains are available for both BitcoinCore (BTC) and BitcoinCash (BCH).
How Drivechains work
Namecoin was the vision of early Bitcoin adopters of creating a DNS and identity infrastructure based on Bitcoin; that is, .bit DNS. This technology piggy backed on top of Bitcoin mining. That is, if you so chose you could merged-mined Namecoin alongside BTC or BCH. Namecoin can absorb hashrate from BTC or BCH without needing its own miners.
Merge-mining with BTC or BCH is also the process of validating and safeguarding Drivechain sidechains. Unlike Namecoin, Drivechain sidechains don’t require miners to run special software. For Drivechain sidechains miners implement what is known as blind-merge-mining. In blind-merge-mining the nodes of the sidechain run the software, not the miners. This operates under the assumption that the nodes running the software also hold BTC or BCH.
A payment fee is paid to miners to blind-merge-mine the sidechain, in a similar way that Namecoin merge-mining pays a fee. In this process, miners don’t have to run any software- they just passively make money for blind-merge-mining blocks with sidechains.
The main difference with sidechains is that you are not mining another coin like Namecoin, but rather you are mining the same BTC or BCH in another sidechain when you do the blind-merge-mining. Miners don’t get paid with the sidechain, they receive payment from the mainchain that they already trust when they blind-merge-mine. Miners are also economically benefited by always getting paid in the superior coin that they are already intentionally mining; BTC or BCH.
As BTC or BCH moves in and out from the mainchain to a sidechain, there might be claims of ownership that may cause disputes. Drivechain prevents this by emphasizing the superiority of the mainchain over sidechains. Sidechains have to report on exactly what it is doing- at all times- to the main chain. Whenever a sidechain wants to transfer money back to the mainchain it has to do it very slowly. This safeguards the network from theft. The slow movement of funds from the sidechain to the mainchain can be arbitrage by individuals who will be willing to purchase sidechain receipts for BTC or BCH coming from sidechains at a discount. People will also be able to do atomic swaps between chains in the near future. (Atomic swaps, or atomic cross chain trading, is the exchange of one cryptocurrency to another cryptocurrency, without the need of trusting a third-party).
It is the intent of Drivechains to create the interaction of miners with sidechains as seamless as possible. However, it is still important to have guarantee that money ends up in the right place. This is the reason for the slow movement of funds from sidechains to the mainchain.
The movement of a certain amount of transactions coming from a sidechain to the mainchain is batched up into one transaction with its own transaction ID. This transaction is frozen in place where miners and developers can examine it for at least a month (there are talks of even making this process longer between 3 to 6 months). During this time miners vote on whether to allow the payment to go through or not. Upon receiving enough upvotes, the batched up transactions are released unto the mainchain. The slowing down of movement of BTC or BCH from sidechains to mainchain decreases the threat of miners stealing BTC or BCH from a sidechain.
The sidechains are always watching the mainchain, so they know to credit people immediately when the mainchain sends money to it. Sidechains also know when the miners have accepted the release of batched up locked funds that are released unto the mainchain. Once the sidechain receives notification of the miners acceptance of funds in the mainchain, the sidechain destroys the funds that were frozen awaiting miner upvotes.
It is overall acknowledged that sidechains increase the value of BTC and BCH, which eventually make mining more profitable. It would be counterproductive for miners to attack and steal funds from sidechains. That is, miners acting maliciously decreases the value of their own equipment. In spite of this fact, it is good that Drivechains make it increasingly more difficult for theft to occur.
Miners, through their voting process, also get to punish bad sidechain actors. Any malicious sidechain will be cleaned out by miners. This is the opposite of the Ethereum model where anyone can code anything into the Ethereum blockchain, to the point that it could become a detriment to the Ethereum mainchain itself. That is, anyone can create a new ERC20 or ERC721 token without any vetting from the network.
Coins are moved from the mainchain to the sidechain by means of sending coins to an address that represents the sending of funds from the mainchain to the sidechain. Anyone running the given sidechain software will recognize that funds were sent to the sidechain- this will automatically credit the person with the same amount of BTC or BCH on the sidechain. Also, the sidechain is programmed to recognize the reception of funds unto the mainchain address from where it will automatically credit the user the same amount of BTC or BCH unto a sidechain wallet. People on the mainchain don’t have to know anything about this particular address. As far as they know, it is just another address.
Embrace the Spontaneous Order of Market Anarchy It is important that people within BTC and BCH take on a more Hayekian approach to entrepreneurship. Many within crypto are uncomfortable with the mere notion of spontaneous order. It is important that we as Ancaps lead the way in motivating people to experiment with their entrepreneurship.
In the past few years, the desire of individuals to covet the development of crypto has become more apparent. These people need to be ignored. No one is the leader of Bitcoin or crypto development. The best innovators within crypto are those that create tools that empower other entrepreneurs to create more options.
It is this spontaneous order that we should welcome and promote at all times. Many within BTC and BCH will not accept or feel comfortable with the radical spontaneous order enabled by Drivechains. This is good reasonto brush up on your Austrian Economics in order to properly confront minds that are fearful of human freedom.
The Ancap entrepreneurs who are most comfortable with spontaneous order will be the same ones who will produce the greatest amount of value. The development of CryptoAnarchy is guided by the science of praxeology and Austrian Economics. Drivechains are testament to the augmentation of our libertarian order are necessary for CryptoAnarchy to thrive.
Drivechains and Investment Strategy
The philosophical and economic advantage of sidechain innovation is that it enables the development of BTC and BCH with an investor-centric intention. It is the market’s investment that now decides the best means for scaling and development. Politics and propaganda take an almost insignificant backseat to that of market forces. The technology is now readily available for investors to test drive with their BTC or BCH on any given proposed sidechain. That is, you actually get to experience the value, or lack of value of a new innovation without jeopardizing your position as an investor.
All investment decisions are about strategy. Sidechains empower the investor’s strategy by allowing the investor to survey all of the possible value propositions of his/her original investment without having to incur any actual costs. In a similar way, sidechains also provide developers with quick market feedback on the aspects of development that are most favored by the market.
Drivechains are a pivotal step in maturing the crypto space into becoming more conscientious in considering the investment strategy of those buying the coins. It is important for innovators to start taking the investor’s strategy into account. Drivechains force developers to consider what is best for the investor, not just what is desired by a given team of developers.
Here we have not only a better proposition for investors, but also an incentive for developers to use Drivechains in future crypto experimentation. When experimenting with an altcoin, the measure of success is contingent on this new altcoin gathering a new pool of investors to literally buy into the project. With a sidechain you are already dealing with a more seasoned group of investors that will provide you with more accurate market feedback, being that their investment is now fortified by all other sidechain experimentations that they have already tested at no cost.
Altcoins will soon no longer be the locus of innovation within crypto. All future innovation will be offered the option to experiment within BTC or BCH via sidechains. Keep in mind that all previous innovations, already tested in the market by successful altcoins, are now easily adopted by BTC or BCH. It is also important to note that creative experimentation on sidechains do not at all jeopardize the mainnets of BTC or BCH. On the contrary, sidechains will make BTC and BCH much more valuable. When the Drivechain craze begins we will see a BTC and BCH bull run. Don’t be surprised if sidechains are the main reason for the next all time highs.
Statists Failing & Anarchists Thriving
It is important that we understand that the legacy banking system is completely dead. They are barely adopting simulations of cryptocurrencies unto their banking structures to stay alive. Stablecoins are a manifestation of this bankster angst to remain current.
True market innovation is found in the embrace of Market Anarchy. CryptoAnarchy is growing exponentially with tools that are beyond the reach of state megalomaniacs. Drivechains are an example of the CryptoAnarchist tools that will result in further anti-fragility of this new crypto free-market.
Proper Austrian Economic incentive structures coupled with applied cryptography is our lethal weapon against nation states and central banks. Arguably, our Ancap philosophy is what guides applied cryptography in the market towards success. For this reason it is important that we keep revisiting the texts of Rothbard, Mises, Hayek, and Konkin throughout our crypto endeavors. Peace!

Some observations on Mike Hearn and also theymos and Adam back

One important thing you may have noticed from Hearn's recent AMA is that he said this:
" It took me about 8-9 months of full time work to get Lighthouse to beta, working on my own"
and
"Bear in mind that the bulk of the work in Lighthouse was not actually the smart contracts bit. That isn't so complicated, actually. The hard work was in making it easy to use, in handling the P2P network, in handling the workflow, in defining a decentralised online update scheme etc.
I think some of these smart contract platforms tend to assume that all they need is a better scripting language and suddenly everything is easy. In reality that part is like 5% of the effort.
WRT side chains - the main problem I see with side chains is that they create a complexity explosion inside wallets, and side chains don't compose. That doesn't mean they're useless, they might be a kind of better testnet, but they aren't a replacement for putting their features directly into the Bitcoin block chain. By "don't compose" I mean consider what happens if you want to use features X and Y together but they exist only on separate side chains. You can't do it. With the features in the same block chain you can compose them, e.g. use a crowdfunding/assurance contract together with multisig."
And finally this
"I'm not currently working on Lighthouse and have not been since around April. There's no point in developing Lighthouse further, or indeed any Bitcoin related product, unless the block size issue gets fixed .... otherwise the addressable market is too small to be able to justify the development costs."
So as you can see, Mike put a lot of work into lighthouse, it needs a bigger blocksize to work and the reason it needs a bigger blocksize is because of the part where he mentions composing... that you get secondary benefits by putting something on the block chain instead of a side chain. I think he has a point. Jeff garzik keeps mentioning repeatedly how everything should be built on top of the block chain but why artificially limit the size and rule out a special use case like what Mike hearn is doing?
Now lets see what theymos thinks. Here is the heart of what he thinks
"I would take the same position even if I knew that the changes in XT were objectively perfect in all cases. If hard fork changes are not appropriately difficult, and can be done by 75% of miners or a mere majority of users or something like that, then the hard, "mathematical" guarantees that we have about Bitcoin such as coin ownership and limited supply are pretty much worthless. Why should a bitcoin be worth anything if it doesn't have any really hard rules/limits attached to it at all, and anything can be changed by a majority of some distant/clueless group?"
This sounds pretty noble and appears like it is... but really it is flawed reasoning. The fact that something is hard doesn't make it go away or make it impossible. The fact that a hard fork can happen is not a threat that will just disappear... it's not just a bad dream that won't come true. It always exists. What makes bitcoin strong isn't that a hard fork is impossible...... because it isn't. What makes bitcoin strong is that incentives are put in the right place. There will never be a hard fork to increase the finite 21 million supply because it goes against the self interest of every player. That incentive is what makes bitcoin strong. If there is a hard fork to increase the block size and converge to XT it is because it is once again that self interest at work that has expressed itself by the advent of a hard fork.
and Adam back
"which is fine & all but we shouldnt confuse a profit seeking enterprise under control of one person for a community p2p resource.'
So roger ver sat on the bitcoin.com domain for years and didn't do much with it and now all the sudden out of nowhere he is throwing thousands of dollars at developers in what many agree is poor design to generate a for profit site all of the sudden? I think adam back is delusional or a moron. The forum on bitcoin.com sprang about because there was heavy censorship on the bitcoin forum about bitcoin XT. Even I caught some of this censorship when I took a screenshot of the CEO of coinbase making a post about mike hearns recent blog entry... and then it got deleted minutes later. That is real censorship. And then he accuses people who vote down his posts or theymos about artifcial voting? I can assure you I'm a real person Adam.
Gavin and Hearn have the right idea. Bitcoin should plan for success. You're going to need big goddam blocks if we start actually getting even niche worldwide markets.

Mistake with mycellium

Well I'm dumb.. I got a new phone yesterday and thought I backed up my mycellium wallet by writing down the twelve word seed which I thought would restore my entire wallet. But it only restored one of my addresses which I hadn't used yet. All the addresses which contained btc were not restored. I definitely misunderstood something fundamental about the seed on mycellium. I thought it worked like trezor where it would restore everything. Don't make my mistake folks. Definitely double check that your bitcoin is backed up properly. I just donated half a btc to the network :(. That's all, have a great weekend!
Edit: thanks to everyone who applied their brain juices to this. It was definitely my own doing. I didn't take the time to understand 2.0 since it came out. I'm a fairly proficient btc user (I thought anyways) but this was a good lesson that overestimating your skill and moving quickly can cost you actual value in the bitcoin world.
edit 2: as someone else pointed out, I've got nothing to lose. If anyone wants to give it a shot, seed is - birth length render approve burst middle clock estate noble taxi insane flat

Cryptocurrency ATM Market - The Biggest Trends to watch out for 2018-2025

Xpodence Research updated data for competitive structure of the Global Cryptocurrency ATM Industry to devise effective growth strategies and facilitate better decision-making.
Cryptocurrency ATM are machines or kiosks connected to internet which allow the inclusion of cash in exchange of cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, Bitcoin and others. The ATMs generates paper receipt which allocates the money to a public key on the blockchain. Cryptocurrency or virtual currency is a medium of exchange generated and stored electronically in the blockchain using the encryption techniques for controlling the creation of monetary units and for verifying the transfer of funds.
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Dogecoin are few crypto coins available and are dominating the market. In some cases, the transaction entails the users to have current accounts along with the operator. Moreover, these machines are also introduced to support multiple wallets and exchanges and are programmed to support any nation currency of various denominations. Growing acceptance of decentralized means of transaction is expected to fuel the market over the forecast period.
Growing number of investors, and user confidence in cryptocurrencies, are also projected to spur the industry demand. Also, increasing mining complexity and growing awareness among the consumers for the crypto coins is further expected to enhance the demand. According to the Coin ATM Radar, the number of bitcoin ATMs is increasing at a steady growth rate of 1.72 ATMs per day.
Get PDF with Technological trends at https://www.xpodenceresearch.com/Request-Sample/105803
In 2017, Coinsource, one of the major players in the bitcoin ATM industry from California has added 14 new ATM machines in Southern and Northern California. The company installation rate has increased from 1.2 machines per week in 2016 to 2.3 machines per week making a total of 39 units in the region.
The ATM machines installed by Coinsource network are “one way” machines which is only used for buying the bitcoin but the consumer cannot sell the bitcoin. Two-way ATM machines globally represent only one-third of the supply (approx. 30%), which also allows consumer to sell the crypto coins, i.e., bitcoin for approved cash and one-way ATM machines two-third of the market share around 70%.
However, companies such as Lamassu are installing the Ethereum ATM’s. The processing time of Ethereum ATM’s is quite less as compare to the Bitcoion ATM’s. An Ethereum ATM takes few seconds for completing a transaction whereas Bitcoin ATM takes around 10 min to complete a transaction. Lamassu has launched approximately 196 ATMs holding a noble share in crypto ATM in the international market.
However, the issuing fee associated with transaction made for buying the crypto coins is expected to restrain the market. Furthermore, the providers and manufacturers of the ATM machine are different results in support issues and less efficient ATMs which is also anticipated to hinder the industry.
Obtain Report Details with technological advancement at https://www.xpodenceresearch.com/Reports/Cryptocurrency-ATM-Market
North America region remains the dominating region in terms of value and volume owing to the maximum installations of ATMs in the region such as U.S., Canada and is also expected to dominate the market share over the forecast period. The region is then followed by Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America. The Key manufacturers in the market include Genesis Coin, General Bytes, Lamassu, Coinsource, BitAccess, Covault, and BitXatm.

Basic Tip's

I was writing this as a reply to someone else's topic and it got kind of lengthy, so I decided to make it into a topic instead.
The intention of this topic is to help new buyers and sellers in the BitCoin community who are looking to meet up and trade locally. I've done a lot of local trades and sales over the years, so I'm hoping that my experiences can help beginners by giving them ideas on how to trade safely. For this purpose I've separated my advice into three sections: meeting for trades, advice for buying, and advice for selling.
I've tried to format everything in a clear and concise manner to make this topic more readable. I'm open to suggestions for edits and additions to help make this guide as useful as possible.
Hope this guide helps anyone looking to start trading locally!
Note: Some names/locations I mention are US based, so I apologize if they're irrelevant for your location. The theories behind this topic should be fine regardless of country.
Meeting: There are three main things I look for in meeting places: Public Location - Are there plenty of people around? WiFi Access - Is there free or cheap public WiFi access in the area? Security - Are there security cameras or security guards in the area?
Public Location: Public locations are like Local Trading 101: it is always better to meet in a public place. Scammers and muggers are a lot less likely to try anything with witnesses around. You can usually find these people early on by simply requesting a public meeting place: they want to meet their victims alone.
WiFi: Places like McDonalds, Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, and many local coffee shops offer free WiFi access. A lot of hotels offer WiFi as well, but usually not for free or to non-customers. Bring a laptop or tablet with you if you have one so you can check transaction details and confirmations. Depending on what you're buying/selling/trading, having a computer to do some last second research on item values can never hurt if you're worried about getting the short end of the stick.
Security: A location with security cameras adds an extra layer of security to a trade. If the other party does get away with stealing from or scamming you, you'll have physical evidence in a recording that can help the authorities track the offender down and bring him to justice. Security guards can help set your mind at ease if you're concerned that you might get mugged: muggers are a lot less likely to rob you if there's a guard with a gun a few yards away. A guard can easily step in and save you if a mugger does start attacking you.
My personal recommendation would be to meet at a mall, if there's one in your area. Malls have tons of security measures to help protect you as you make your trade, and many malls have WiFi access across the entire property: there's a good chance that one of the mall's stores has WiFi access even if the mall itself doesn't. Banks are a good choice too: banks have great security, and some bigger banks have WiFi access as well.
Buying: There are three things I want to cover about buying in-person: Reviewing Your Purchase Paying with BitCoin Paying with Cash
Reviewing Your Purchase: For buying items, remember that there's a lot you can't tell about something just from pictures. Make sure to look the item over carefully and make sure everything is in working condition/described condition before you pay the seller. A seller who is unwilling or nervous about letting you check out an item may know something about the item he doesn't want you to find out. It's a good idea to meet during the day or in a well lit area so you can see everything clearly. Don't be afraid to ask questions if anything feels off and don't feel obligated to complete a sale you're uncomfortable with.
Paying with BitCoin: One of the easiest ways to pay in BitCoin in person is with a mobile wallet app from a smartphone. Blockchain a mobile wallet app for Android and iOS. It's an online wallet, so I wouldn't recommend it for long-time storage: strictly transactions. Once I know how much I need to pay for an item I put that much in the wallet, and maybe 1 or 2 BTC more just in case there's a last second price change, and when I get home I immediately transfer any leftover funds to a more secure wallet. Blockchain works the same as any other client: enter the seller's payment address and the amount of BTC for the sale to send payment. Blockchain also has a QR scanner built in if the seller has a QR code address.
As a side note, I use an iPhone and Blockchain is, to my knowledge, the only wallet app for iOS without jailbreaking your phone. I have no knowledge about jailbreaking or Android apps for alternatives to Blockchain, but you can always do your research here on the forum or on the BitCoin wiki to find an app that works for you. You can also use your laptop, if you have it with you, to access your wallet and pay the seller. I recommend creating a brand new wallet for the transaction, especially if you're the paranoid type. Better safe than sorry, right?
Paying with Cash: This section focuses on buying BitCoins. One of the more common OTC transactions is buying BitCoin with cash. If you're buying BTC, you need to give the seller a payment address to receive your funds. You can use your mobile wallet to receive the funds, which you can then transfer to a safer wallet when you get home, or you can write down or print out a wallet address for the seller to send the BTC to. If you do the latter method, make sure to confirm the transaction before you part ways: use a laptop to check your wallet and confirm the payment or have a trusted friend/family member monitor the wallet and contact you with confirmation of the funds.
Selling: There are a few things to review for sellers: Terms of the Sale or Trade Accepting BitCoin Payment Accepting Cash Payment Other Forms of Payment
Terms of the Sale or Trade: If you and the buyer have agreed to the terms of the trade ahead of time (as in what is being sold and for what price), I recommend printing out a copy of the agreement or correspondence (emails, forum posts, etc.). I've had experiences where the buyer tries to change the deal at the last minute or claims that I agreed to a lower price for the sale. Printing out what you offered and he accepted will back you up and help you get the price you asked for. You can also take a picture of these correspondences with your phone or digital camera if you don't have a printer, or use a laptop/tablet to bring them up if WiFi access is available.
Accepting BitCoin Payment: Write down or print your payment address and bring it with you: I also recommend having a QR code address printed for buyers who use mobile wallets. Make sure you have a way to confirm payment before you part ways with the buyer. Use a laptop/tablet to check on the transaction for confirmations as well as affirming that the buyer paid the correct amount. You could also have a trusted friend/family member monitor your wallet and contact you with confirmation if WiFi is unavailable. Mobile app wallets may be able to confirm transactions on the spot, negating the need for WiFi access and a computer if you have a 3G/4G phone: the Blockchain app I mentioned can do this for you.
Accepting Cash Payment: The main concern with cash payment is counterfeit bills. Most banks and retail locations keep special markers at the registers that can show if a bill is real or counterfeit. Here's an example on Amazon. These markers are a cheap investment if you're worried about receiving counterfeit money. I've also found them at office supply stores like Office Depot and Staples for around $5-$15. Keep one in your pocket and mark the bills before you finish the sale. Make sure you explain to the buyer what you're doing so they don't freak out on you: I've had that happen before.
Other Forms of Payment: The are two things to remember about alternative forms of payment: one; try to agree with the buyer ahead of time about the use of non-cash/non-BTC payments, and two; do your research on the payment method to make sure you know what you're getting and how it works (and how easily, if possible, it can be forged or reversed). This forum is full of warnings about certain payment methods for good reason. BitCoin purchases seem to be the bigger targets for chargeback fraud, so keep yourself educated when you're selling BTC in person.
There is one final warning I would like to give in this section: do not accept personal checks. One of the first in-person sales I ever did was for a personal check ($450), and I'm sure you can guess how that went simply by the way I've brought it up. Another check sale a few months after that one was paid for with a stolen checkbook and I had police show up at my house asking about the sale so they could find the guy. If you absolutely must accept a sale by check, I would recommend completing the sale at a bank so you can cash the check on the spot.
Other Tips: This section is for good advice submitted by other posters. Thanks for your contributions! Make sure to specify your expectations in advance. Confirm the time and place of meeting and make sure that both parties have everything on hand to complete the sale or trade. Strength in numbers: bringing along a second person can be an excellent source of additional security and protection.
