Monero Presents New Legal Framework In Defense Of Privacy Coins
Riccardo Spagni presented the result of more than a year's work. A whitepaper titled "Anti-Money Laundering Regulation of Privacy-Enabling Cryptocurrencies" has been published. The document was conceived as a new legal framework to protect confidential coins such as Monero, Zcash, Dash, Komodo, and others.
Tether Is Moving 1 Billion More USDT Coins From TRON To Ethereum Blockchain
The total supply of coins will not change. The company carried out the swap on September 15, coordinating its actions "with a third party". In recent weeks, this is the second such stablecoin transfer between blockchains — on August 20, the issuer also moved USDT 1 billion from Tron to Ethereum. Another piece of news about Tether: USDT capitalization exceeded $15 billion, having increased by $3 billion in just a month.
Projects and Updates
Kraken Receives Licence To Establish First U.S Digital Assets Bank
The Kraken Bitcoin exchange was the first in the United States to receive the status of a special purpose depository institution (SPDI), giving it the functions of a traditional financial institution. The corresponding application of the Californian company was approved by the Wyoming Banking Council. This will allow Kraken to opt-out of third-party vendors to perform certain banking functions on its own.
Official Ethereum Proof-of-Stake Algorithm Proposal Published
Ethereum Foundation Lead Developer Danny Ryan has published the official proposal EIP-2982, which suggests the launch of Ethereum 2.0 and the transition from the Proof-of-Work consensus algorithm to Proof-of-Stake. If approved by other leading developers, it will be possible to launch Serenity, Ethereum 2.0 phase zero. Within its framework, the Beacon Chain will be activated, which will use Proof-of-Stake.
Uniswap Provides All Its Users With $1.200
Leading decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap has released the UNI governance token. It was listed on the Binance exchange almost immediately. About 13000 Uniswap users have already requested tokens.
Regulations
New Draft Law Suggests The European Union Is Set To Regulate Cryptocurrencies
The European Commission proposed to establish a legal framework for cryptocurrencies, security tokens, and stablecoins by analogy with the requirements for traditional financial instruments. This is stated in the Cryptocurrency Asset Markets Bill. The bill proposes to treat cryptocurrency assets like any other financial instrument. According to the European Commission, this will provide legal clarity.
Digital Assets Recognized As Securities In Nigeria
The regulator clarified that cryptocurrencies offer public alternative investment opportunities. Digital assets can be used as a medium of exchange, settlement, and accumulation. In order to protect investors from risks and not violate the integrity of the market, crypto assets must be controlled on an equal basis with securities. The main task of regulation is not to discourage the development of new technologies, but to ensure fair market competition and adherence to ethical standards.

Japanese Crypto Exchange Sues Binance for Role in $63 Million Bitcoin Hack
The Japanese company Fisco Cryptocurrency Exchange, Inc has filed a US lawsuit against Binance Holdings Ltd., accusing it of providing a service to launder cryptocurrency stolen from the Zaif exchange in 2018. Fisco acquired Zaif in 2018 shortly after the hack. Over $9 million in stolen assets could have been funneled through Binance. The company notes that analysts were able to track the movement of all stolen $63 million to one bitcoin address. Subsequently, 1,451.7 BTC were sent from it to Binance addresses.
New Virus Attacks Microsoft SQL Database Servers For Monero Mining
Tencent's cybersecurity division has discovered a new miner virus called MrbMiner. The tactics of the virus are quite simple — the botnet scans the available IP addresses in search of Microsoft SQL servers, and if it detects such, it tries to log in under the administrator account using a brute-force password. If successful, the virus downloads the assm.exe file, which implements a reboot mechanism and creates a special account for hackers to access the server. After that, MrbMiner downloads a miner for mining the anonymous cryptocurrency Monero (XMR).
Mass adoption
Bahamas Geared to Launch Central Bank Digital Currency
The Bahamas wants to be the first country in the world to roll out a government-backed virtual currency nationwide and announced they will launch a central bank-issued cryptocurrency (CBDC) in October. The digital currency, dubbed "sand dollar", is designed to increase the financial availability of remote islands within the archipelago state.
Alibaba On Track To Be The Largest Blockchain Patent Holder By End Of 2020
Computer giant IBM risks losing the title of the largest blockchain patent holder to the Chinese corporation Alibaba. Since the beginning of the year, Alibaba has published ten times more patents than its closest competitor, IBM. According to analysts, if the pace is maintained, the Chinese corporation will become the largest patent holder by the end of the year.
France Begins Central Bank Digital Currency Testing
Société Générale — one of the largest financial conglomerates in Europe — will test the central bank digital currency (CBDC) on the Tezos blockchain. The Bank of France, as a result of the selection of partners, chose the Forge blockchain platform to test CBDC for interbank settlements. As part of the experiment, the feasibility of digitizing financial securities and the possibility of settlements on them using CBDC will be studied. In addition to Nomadic Labs, several technology service providers and consultants will participate in the testing.
Kazakhstan Will Develop A Blockchain Service For Ensuring The Security Of Personal Data
It will allow citizens of the country to control the use of their personal data. The service is planned to be introduced by the end of this year.

Kiss Rock Group Member Is Ready To Buy Bitcoin
Gene Simmons supported Cameron Winklevoss's request to use bank accounts to buy Bitcoin and Ether. The co-founder of Gemini tweeted that people who do not have access to banking services find it difficult to become the owners of cryptocurrency and that they need to take advantage of the benefits. The musician commented as follows: "I will. I am." For this moment, the most common opinion on Twitter is that Simmons is already buying cryptocurrency and will continue to increase the amount of Bitcoin he owns.

Why AMP is a threat to the Open Web

What is AMP?
AMP is an open-source web component framework developed by the AMP Open Source Project, first announced by Google in 2015 as a reaction to Facebook’s Instant Articles and Apple News. While it was originally aimed at accelerating mobile pages (hence AMP), it’s now a much broader project aimed at improving the UX of websites, stories, ads and mail. The AMP framework consists of three components: AMP HTML, which is standard HTML markup with web components; AMP JavaScript, which manages resource loading; and AMP caches, which serves and validates AMP pages.
In plain English: AMP is Google’s attempt at making pages (and more) faster. They did a good job, pages built with the AMP framework will normally load faster. However, as this article explains, you won’t notice much of a difference unless the AMP library is served using the AMP cache, but more on that later.
The controversies with cached AMP pages
The AMP format is itself not much of a problem. In fact, we should applaud search engines that give ranking preference to fast-loading pages like AMP, but four aspects of its implementation are flawed:
  1. Google mobile Search’s Top Stories carousel has a premium position above of all other results, which is only accessible for AMP pages. These pages have to use a technology that was build and maintained mostly by Google (of the top 10 contributors to the AMP project on GitHub, 9 are Google employees), are then served by Google from their infrastructure and placed within a Google controlled user experience. And since this carousel generates a lot of clicks and revenue, publishers are left no choice but to embrace AMP. This has the effect of further reinforcing Google’s dominance of the Web. Fortunately, Google has announced that it's working on opening up the Top Stories carousel to non-AMP pages in 2021.
  2. The biggest performance boost doesn’t come from the AMP framework, but from preloading the page. It begs the question: Should preloading really be exclusive to AMP? They could introduce a way for publishers to allow or disallow preloading and if Google sees fit, they could preload those pages too, alongside AMP.
  3. When a user navigates from Google to a piece of content Google has recommended (or when a user clicks on a shared cached AMP link), they are, unwittingly, remaining within Google’s ecosystem and the publisher’s domain is obscured by the google.com/amp prefix. To work around this Google introduced Signed HTTP Exchanges ([Draft], [1], [2]), a web-standard that allows the browser to display the original site's URL, instead of the actual one (the one with the google.com/prefix). This would solve the original issue, but while doing so it introduced new ones (e.g. it obfuscates the fact that they're delivering the AMP page you're visiting). Interestingly enough, Google's Chrome already has support for this technology, but parties not involved with AMP are not so enthusiastic: Mozilla has deemed it a harmful web standard [2], and Apple has taken a similar stance.
  4. Google’s entire business model is about collecting as much personal data as possible, AMP is just another tool to do so. As described in Google’s Support article:
“When you use the Google AMP Viewer, Google and the publisher that made the AMP page may each collect data about you.”
The controversies with non-cached AMP pages
To be clear, the above flaws are only with AMP pages cached by Google (or another party like Bing or Cloudflare) but there are also plenty of pages simply utilizing the AMP framework, recognized by URLs such as bbc.com/news/amp/. However, these are also problematic, mainly because there's only a small performance improvement when AMP pages aren't cached and AMP pages tend to be less feature-rich and less diverse than their originals. And in some edge cases, it breaks stuff.
One could argue that the more popular the AMP framework becomes, the more AMP threatens the open web. That said, it should be clear that the biggest problem lies with the cached AMP pages.
AMP is open source, but that doesn't make it holy. Or as Ferdy Christant puts it quite nicely in his blog:
Google’s main defense is that AMP is open source. Which isn’t just a weak defense, it’s no defense at all. I can open source a plan for genocide. The term “open source” is meaningless if the thing that is open source is harmful.
Just so we’re clear, I’m not claiming Google or the AMP project is evil (hell, they might even have good intentions!), but the fact is that AMP and it's implementation have some major flaws that threaten the Open Web. And as long as that's the case, AmputatorBot will be there to remove AMP from your URLs.

.. By sponsoring: The bot and website cost approximately €8.26 a month to host and while that might not seem like much, it adds up. All donations will be used ONLY to pay for hosting. You can specify any amount you want, but please keep in mind that I only want to try to cover some of the costs. Thank you so much! - https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EU6ZFKTVT9VH2

Weekly news review (July 27-2)

Weekly news review (July 27-2)
How have you been? I guess it's time to deep dive into last week's news.
https://preview.redd.it/5meikrws4le31.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=1b2264d3023fc564a88c4da6a7b54ef4624f5c24
The Kazakhstan government has once again issued an advisory to all major local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) asking them to make it mandatory for all their customers to install government-issued root certificates on their devices in order to regain access to the Internet services. The root certificate in question, labeled as "trusted certificate" or "national security certificate," if installed, allows ISPs to intercept and monitor users' encrypted HTTPS and TLS connections, helping the government spy on its citizens and censor content. In other words, the government is essentially launching a "man in the middle" attack on every resident of the country.

Crypto derivatives platform FTX has perhaps the most speculative and oddly-named futures index fund on the market: SHIT-PERP, or the Shitcoin Index Perpetual Futures.
An index of 58 low market cap coins, SHIT-PERP includes projects like Waves, Grin, and Nano. It is flanked by two other low-cap indexes on the site, MID-PERP and ALT-PERP.
Regardless of the index’s name, FTX stands by its product which it launched in June. Speaking to CoinDesk, FTX Chief Marking Officer Darren Wong said the index allows traders and investors to interact with coins in an innovative way. Wong listed three examples:
If you want exposure to a particular initial coin offering, but not the general industry, you can short SHIT-PERP. By shorting the greater alt market, you hedge your bets and limit your downside.
If you want to short low market cap altcoins in general, you can use SHIT-PERP. The indexed future is one of few ways to short low cap alt markets.
If you think bitcoin’s dominance is too high, you can buy all three of FTX’s altcoin futures indexes and sell BTC-PERP, the platforms Bitcoin futures index.

The United States National Basketball Association (NBA) and its affiliated union — the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) — have partnered with Dapper Labs of CryptoKitties-fame to release a new crypto collectibles game.
According to an official announcement on the NBPA website, the upcoming game is scheduled to launch in early 2020.
The game, called NBA Top Shot, will be a roster-building competitive game that is based on crypto collectibles. According to the announcement, fans will be able to gather live footage of NBA games that can then be used in some capacity to build a competing roster for the game — or to simply be owned and trade as a collectible, as the user chooses.

Fortaleza, a major city of northeast Brazil, will start accepting Bitcoin (BTC) as payment for bus tickets by the end of 2019.
A local transportation service announced an initiative to allow citizens to pay for bus tickets by credit and debit cards as well as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The initiative purportedly aims to reduce operational costs in the bus ticketing system, the report notes.
The entity, called Cooperative of Independent Transport of Passengers of the State of Ceará (Cootraps), said that passengers will be able to pay for their trips with Bitcoin through their smartphones by scanning a QR code, as first reported by Brazilian tabloid newspaper O Povo.

An iMessage vulnerability patched by Apple as part of the 12.4 iOS update allows potential attackers to read contents of files stored on iOS devices remotely with no user interaction, as user mobile with no sandbox.
The security flaw tracked as CVE-2019-8646 was discovered by Google Project Zero security researcher Natalie Silvanovich who reported it to Apple during May.
The proof of concept Silvanovich created works only on devices running iOS 12 or later and it is designed as "a simple example to demonstrate the reach-ability of the class in Springboard. The actual consequences of the bug are likely more serious."

Let us know what you think!

European Investors are Renewing Their Interest in Gold

European investors are showing a heightened level of interest in gold. This trend reflects a turnaround in the status of gold as an asset in the world’s economy.
Before the 2008 financial crash, European central banks were net sellers of gold. Gold represented a bygone era: a barbaric relic without periodic yield that was fast falling out of favor with institutional investors.
Europe was undoubtedly the most advanced region in the world between the 11 than 20th centuries. Much of the continent had royal families that donned plenty of gold as a sign of status and wealth. As the continent modernized through the 20th century, the shift to paper money and more equal societies swept this order aside. Gold had the vestiges of this era, and by the 1990s, it seemed to be relegated to a fringe asset.
Fast forward a decade, and gold is once again popular with the high and mighty, as well as individual investors.
A 2019 statement on the website of the Dutch central bank, De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), best shows the perspective shift in the past two decades. The Netherlands has raised its gold holdings to over 600 tons despite being a pretty modern economy.
The statement in part read:
“Shares, bonds, and other securities are not without risk, and prices can go down. But a bar of gold retains its value, even in times of crisis. That is why central banks, including DNB, have traditionally held considerable amounts of gold. Gold is the perfect piggy bank — it’s the anchor of trust for the financial system. If the system collapses, the gold stock can serve as a basis to build it up again. Gold bolsters confidence in the stability of the central bank’s balance sheet and creates a sense of security.”

A Sense of Realism

Central banks have a track record of cautious, balanced communication meant to prevent overreaction from the public. Therefore, it is somewhat surprising to see some European central banks giving gold a direct endorsement.
Many would associate these institutions with a conservative approach that appraises paper money and the stability of the status quo.
Hungary is another country where monetary policy is shifting toward gold. The country’s central bank (MNB) conducted its first gold purchases since 1986 last year.
To explain this move, MNB described its rationale as follows:
“In normal circumstances, gold has a confidence-building feature, i.e., it may play a stabilizing role and act as a major line of defense under extreme market conditions or in times of structural changes in the international financial system or deep geopolitical crises. In addition, gold continues to be one of the safest assets, which can be related to individual properties such as the limited supply of physical precious metal. This asset does not have a link to credit or counterparty risk, given that gold is not a claim on a specific counterparty or country.”
Interestingly, the features that made gold an old-school, boring asset in the 90s have made it extremely appealing today. European institutional investors are now increasingly appreciating this reality. In hindsight, the decision by the Bank of England to sell off large amounts of gold in the late 90s looks foolish now. A lot of European central banks shared this dismissive sentiment.

Reasons for the Renewed Interest in Gold

As the new millennium started, the European Union couldn’t be stronger. The Euro was a darling for investors, economies like Greece were still decent, and the region generally faced fewer geopolitical crises.
The 2008 financial meltdown was a devastating reality check for the region. Many countries, especially in Southern Europe, have never truly recovered from this crisis. In 2019, the region’s economy was still barely growing. Europe’s largest economy, Germany, just about managed to beat a recession.
This region is not immune to geopolitical crises either. The migrant crisis in the aftermath of the Syrian civil war threatened to tear Europe apart, not only from a political standpoint but also economically.
Individualistic approaches to national economies are back in fashion. Therefore, European central banks are following recent trends from the likes of Russia, Turkey, and Kazakhstan in shoring up their gold reserves.
Moreover, Europe and most of the Western world is in a zero to negative interest era. With such circumstances prevailing, investors are looking to gold as a store of value.
Central banks have pushed low-interest policies for a decade now, flooding the global economy with cheap fiat money. Inevitably, investors’ trust in cash-backed investments dissipates with time because there is no timeline of departure for this policy.
Even ordinary investors seem to be catching on. Germany, for instance, is reportedly looking to lower the anonymous purchase limit for gold, from €10,000 to €2,000. Lowering the limit comes under the guise of anti money-laundering.
Such measures are a response to the increasing appetite for the precious metal, even among regular investors. Gold is an attractive asset to hedge against inflation. This quality is something useful in such uncertain times, hence the higher demand.

A Reflection of Global Trends

Despite the significance of this turnaround, Europe is relatively late to the party. Central banks across the world have been rapidly increasing their gold reserves, especially in the latter part of the previous decade.
In the past couple of years, central banks have bought gold at rates unseen since the end of the US gold standard in 1971. Countries like Russia lead the onslaught, with demand likely to remain solid for the foreseeable future.
Interestingly, Hungary and Poland feature prominently among the largest purchasers. Global data from the World Gold Council spanning the first three quarters of 2019 indicates that last year will likely break records in annual central bank gold purchases.
Gold provides an opportunity for countries with stuttering currencies like Russia to hedge against inflation. The yellow metal has a standard price in international markets and presents an opportunity to shore up against further currency slides. Gold’s standing as a safe-haven asset among central banks has never been higher in recent times. For investors, it is a viable asset for portfolio diversification.
As a regional bloc, European central banks already have the highest amount of gold reserves worldwide, although the USA leads among individual countries by some distance. This positioning puts into perspective the importance of Europe to global gold trading. With the region looking to become one with a robust demand for gold, this could boost prices tremendously.
Investor interest in gold-related products like ETFs is equally strong. Inflows into gold-backed ETFs since the end of 2015 have been on the rise. ETFs are the primary tool for stock market gold exposure, and their popularity is a reflection of investor sentiment.
Even in this asset class, European investors are increasingly active with assets under management in European gold ETFs rising to 1,134 tons by the end of 2018.

The Role of Private Investors

In a zero or negative interest rate regime, and fears of a European recession and weaker European stocks relative to the American market, individual investors are showing high interest in gold. In Switzerland, gold ranks second only to real estate in terms of which asset ordinary people consider purchasing. Gold offers security and stability, which don’t seem so sure in a stuttering Europe.
The behavior of private gold investors points at individuals looking for such stability. Short-term speculation with the bull gold market is not a huge factor, although it may provide an incentive for some. Prominent investors like Ray Dalio suggest that gold may maintain its bull run for the rest of the year.
In summary, Europe is fast catching on to the new gold rush. With a struggling economy and geopolitical crises, gold popularity in this market is a logical result. The yellow metal has proven its mettle many times over during financial turmoil. Gold is making a strong comeback in this region not only among central banks but also private investors.

The Next Recession May be Brutal: That’s a Net Positive for Gold and Bitcoin

Prominent gold bull Peter Schiff predicts that the next recession will be brutal, and owning gold or Bitcoin will be a net positive.
The US economy is more robust than it has ever been. With a roaring stock market and decent consumer spending, talk of recession is minimal. However, certain aspects of this growth are cause for investors like Schiff to raise the alarm:
“Today’s revisions to Q3 GDP confirm the U.S. economy is a bubble. GDP ‘growth’ is driven completely by excess consumer and government spending, as the real economy contracts. But such spending is a function of debt, much of which can’t be repaid. The coming bust will be brutal!”
With the S&P 500 pushing record high after record high, stock market traders are as bullish as ever. Such sentiment could make the next crash particularly devastating. In the 2008 financial crash, stocks in a hallmark Wall Street firm, Bear Stearns, went from over $100 to $2 within a week. Investing in stocks can be great, but when it rains, it pours.
Accurately predicting the next recession is often a hit-and-miss game even for the top analysts. Even those who predicted the financial crisis of 2008 couldn’t pinpoint with precision when it would begin. Regardless, this does not discredit anyone who tells investors to be cautious. The issues Schiff raises are pertinent to the macro-economic stability of the American and global economies.
Even those who make the right predictions about an upcoming recession have no respite if they do nothing about it. Building a defensive portfolio is one way to absorb such shocks. In recent decades, gold has distinguished itself as the premier safe-haven asset.

Gold Prices During a Recession

Gold has historically performed well during times of financial uncertainty. Naturally, recessions are the extreme end of such turmoil, meaning that gold prices should peak. In the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, gold prices rose dramatically and peaked in 2011 at the height of quantitative easing measures from major central banks.
If a brutal crisis such as Schiff predicts could happen comes to pass, gold prices should ease past the $2,000 mark. Gold has millennia of reputation and scarcity that makes it the perfect safe-haven asset in such a crisis. Therefore, investors see it as a valuable asset to hedge against recessions. If you are already in one, it can provide cover against further negative slides. This stability is why investors like Schiff advise that traders have anywhere between 10–30% weighting in gold. Whether split between physical gold and mining equities, gold-backed ETFs, or any other arrangement, gold has a track record of weathering the storm.

Bitcoin as a Store of Value Asset

Using the phrase ‘store of value’ for Bitcoin may sound like an oxymoron. After all, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are notorious for volatility in their few years of existence. In the 2018 calendar year, Bitcoin went from about $18,000 down to about $3,400 only to rebound to over $10,000 by mid-2019.
However, one trait gives Bitcoin a silver lining: decentralization. Bitcoin is a decentralized, pseudonymous network that is independent of central bank control. Accordingly, Bitcoin has the eye of many investors who seek to diversify their holdings.
So far, there is little evidence as to whether Bitcoin will trade like a safe-haven asset during a full-blown crisis. The fact that Bitcoin does not have a direct correlation to the mainstream is what drives interest. Bitcoin prices are purely market-driven as no one controls supply like regular fiat.
Therefore, some speculate that in the event of a financial crisis, investors will flock to Bitcoin just like gold. Recent history suggests that temporary Bitcoin investors hold the coin for speculative purposes rather than a store of value. Will this change soon?
It could be that investors allocate money to risky assets when they feel comfortable about investing generally. Therefore, there is a distinct possibility that investors could shy away from Bitcoin during times of economic turbulence.
What will transpire during an actual recession is difficult to predict. Bitcoin may have insulation from mainstream stocks, but bearish sentiment can affect investor sentiment either way. You can have a situation where investors hedge Bitcoin more or avoid high-risk assets in general. It will take time before Bitcoin has the stability and reputation of gold.
The maturity of crypto markets between now and when an actual recession hits is also a factor. Bitcoin can be a viable alternative to gold, but a lot of stars have to align.

Gold’s Edge

Based on current economic and policy trends, gold is in the perfect position to have a net positive from a recession. Incredibly, even with the S&P 500 and other stock market indices up by a lot, gold has had a strong bull run in 2019.
The macro-economic factors that have fueled gold prices include geopolitical tensions and low interest rates. All through 2020, these factors will still loom large.
Gold enjoys a stability that Bitcoin holders can only dream of. Even in the rare event that an institution or person dumps a significant amount of gold in the market, the net price effect will not be as drastic as with other assets.
Demand for gold is only getting stronger with the resilience it is showing. Central banks in emerging and struggling economies are adding rapidly to their gold holdings to hedge against currency slides. Accordingly, the likes of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and Turkey have added significantly to their gold reserves in recent years.
Part of this demand stems from an effort to reduce reliance on the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. Russia and China are dealing with sanctions and a trade war, respectively, while many developing countries have stuttering currencies. Gold provides a useful alternative to store value for such countries.
Additionally, Islamic countries like Iran, Malaysia, Turkey, and Qatar are considering a gold barter system among themselves to hedge against future economic sanctions. Iran continues to bear the brunt of punitive sanctions while Qatar almost experienced an economic shutdown after a Saudi orchestrated blockade in 2018. The deliberations began after an economic summit led by Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamed from the 18th to the 21st of December 2019.
Therefore, gold enjoys a universal credibility that Bitcoin and crypto can only dream about. When looking to store value or hedge against a stock crash, gold is still the premier asset to hold.

Gold to Surge in the Coming Decade

Many analysts see the tremendous upside of holding gold now. Paul Schatz, Heritage Capital president, recently touched on this sentiment in comments to Yahoo Finance:
“I think gold’s going to $2,500, $3,000 an ounce in the 2020s because the climate — the landscape for gold is so hugely supportive.”
Investors see the value of using bullion as a hedge. Even though gold cannot replace government bonds entirely in portfolio diversification, the case for reallocating a portion of normal bond exposure to gold is as strong as ever.
Bullion has had a steady decade of growth through the 2010s. It has performed better than most assets, save for outliers like cryptocurrencies. Stocks have rallied in the past decade, but a combination of high debt levels and low interest rates places the value of fiat at a precarious place. These factors have allowed gold to maintain solid prices even through periods of relative economic prosperity.
For those who distrust fiat and central bank management of fiat, hedging gold is a no-brainer. Having at least 10% gold in your portfolio is a decent approach to start the next decade. Investing in bullion, gold mining equity, or gold-backed ETFs provides useful diversification to your portfolio. With digital gold-backed tokens now available in the market, you don’t need to worry about the hassle of storing and transporting the gold. Either way, investing in gold now puts you in a great position entering the new decade.

IPVanish Review - Why its a great VPN

IPVanish is a popular VPN service particularly with Android and Fire TV Stick users, and it makes a very strong claim on its homepage – that it’s the “World’s Best VPN.”
Seen this sort of statement before, right? It’s certainly one of the leading VPN providers out there, but is it really the best VPN overall?
We never take a provider’s word for it, so we decided to put IPVanish to the test – a very extensive one – to see if its claims are to be believed.
We were particularly keen to find out:
How good is IPVanish? Is it safe to use? Is IPVanish very fast? Does it work with Netflix? Is torrenting and P2P allowed? Is it the best VPN app for Firestick? But before we answer each of these (and many more) questions, lets see the pros and cons of IPVanish VPN:
Pros Cons Very impressive speeds Works with Netflix Great for torrenting & Kodi No-logs policy & no IP/DNS/WebRTC leaks User-friendly apps for PC, Mac, iOS, & Android Good server network across 50 countries Won't work with BBC iPlayer, or in China Short refund period Based in privacy-unfriendly US Desktop app could be more user-friendly Works with
Netflix, HBO, Torrenting, Kodi
Available on
Windows Mac Ios Android Linux Price from
$4.87/mo
As you can see IPVanish certainly does have many strengths to shout about.
It’s now time to take a very close look at the attributes and features of each IPVanish app, starting with how fast it is.
Speed & Reliability IPVanish is a consistently fast VPN
IPVanish is a very fast VPN service, with some of the quickest speeds we’ve seen in our tests.
IPVanish didn’t slow down our connection too much, and it is more than fast enough for HD or 4K streaming.
Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server.
Before using IPVanish:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 93.76
UPLOAD Mbps 97.58
PING ms 2
When connected to IPVanish:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 84.13
UPLOAD Mbps 90.33
PING ms 7
Download speed without IPVanish: 93.76Mbps
Download speed with IPVanish: 84.13Mbps
Our download speed loss when IPVanish is running: 10%
Downloads, uploads and latency when using IPVanish are among the best we’ve seen, making this VPN a very smart choice for gamers and torrenters alike.
It’s also one of the most reliable VPN services we’ve seen, providing consistently fast speeds from one test to the next.
Here are the average speeds you can expect when using IPVanish to connect out to various locations around the world (from the UK):
USA: 53Mbps (download) & 37Mbps (upload) Germany: 76Mbps (download) & 81Mbps (upload) Singapore: 25Mbps (download) & 2Mbps (upload) Australia: 24Mbps (download) & 6Mbps (upload) Server Locations Over 40,000 IP addresses across 77 locations
Globe with a blue flag 50 Countries Image of a city landscape 77 Cities Image of a pink marker 40,000+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations IPVanish VPN gives access to more than 1,300 servers worldwide and over 40,000 IP addresses, which is one of the highest numbers of IP addresses we’ve ever seen. This means that you’re unlikely to experience VPN server congestion and slow speeds while connected to IPVanish.
The 50 countries in IPVanish’s VPN server network are well spread-out, including some less common nations like Moldova and the Philippines (in addition to all the typical countries like US, UK, Canada, Australia, and more).
List of IPVanish server locations
IPVanish provides its customers with city-level options in the US (19 cities), UK (4), Canada (3) Australia (2) and Brazil (2).
US-based users can choose from IPVanish servers in:
Central – Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Jackson, Milwaukee, St. Louis East – Ashburn, Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Miami, New York West – Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, San Jose, Seattle We’d love to see more city-level selections in Australia – mainly Perth which is located on the West coast – and more server options in South America, where only Brazil and Colombia are served.
The high number of VPN servers in IPVanish’s network is enough to offset these minor complaints, though.
IPVanish is one of the few VPN providers to own its entire (or very close to) server infrastructure, meaning they rent very few servers from third-parties.
Streaming & Torrenting Excellent choice for torrenting & Netflix
Despite IPVanish being one of the fastest VPNs we’ve seen, it’s just not a great VPN for streaming.
Most of IPVanish’s US servers work for Netflix, although it can occasionally take a while to load, but all of its UK servers are currently blocked by BBC iPlayer and according to IPVanish they are not looking to work on fixing this.
If streaming BBC iPlayer is important to you, read through our dedicated guide or take a look at our NordVPN or CyberGhost reviews, two VPN services that work well with BBC iPlayer.
IPVanish has also confirmed it isn’t working with Amazon Prime Video or Hulu at the moment.
Torrenting IPVanish is, however, one of the best VPN services for torrenting we’ve tested, with very fast speeds and a watertight logging policy.
Torrenting is permitted on all of its servers and when we checked for IP/DNS leaks, we found none.
Not to mention that it has a VPN kill switch, but more on this below.
Therefore, we recommend IPVanish VPN for all P2P activity including Kodi for which IPVanish is currently the #1 VPN service.
Bypassing Censorship No good for China
IPVanish is very upfront in saying that the VPN service won’t work in China, despite being equipped with an array of obfuscation tools.
We really appreciate IPVanish’s honesty on this topic. IPVanish also provides a useful list of other countries the VPN won’t work in: you can find this on the support section of the IPVanish website.
List of IPVanish banned countries
IPVanish states that it is “forbidden to do business in”:
Myanmar Cuba Iran North Korea Sudan Syria IPVanish states that its domain, ipvanish.com, is blocked in:
Qatar Saudi Arabia United Arab Emirates (UAE) China Kazakhstan It’s not just IPVanish’s domain that is blocked in these countries, and many users have reported that IPVanish’s apps don’t work either.
If you live or are travelling to a high censorship country then we suggest you consider using VPN services like ExpressVPN or VyprVPN to bypass aggressive internet censors.
Platforms & Devices Works with all major platforms & devices
Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router IPVanish has custom VPN apps for all popular mobile and desktop operating systems so you can use them on:
PCs Apple Macs iPhones Android devices You can also setup IPVanish on other devices using manual workarounds (see the ‘Games Consoles & Streaming Devices’ section below).
Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox IPVanish is a good VPN to use with gaming consoles and streaming devices.
IPVanish is our number 1 VPN pick for the increasingly popular Amazon Firestick, and it’s super easy to install and use.
You can also use IPVanish on 10 devices at once, which is very generous (the average among the top VPN services is about 5 simultaneous connections).
You can also install IPVanish on your home router so that all your internet traffic at home is protected.
Browser Extensions Unfortunately, IPVanish doesn’t have any VPN browser extensions, which is a shame and one of the very few areas where it seriously lags behind its competitors.
If you want to use a VPN extension with your web browser then take a look at our:
Best VPN extensions for Chrome Best VPN addons for Firefox Encryption & Security One of the safest providers we’ve reviewed

Security DNS Leak Blocking
First-party DNS
IPV6 Leak Blocking
Supports TCP Port 443
VPN Kill Switch
Advanced features SOCKS
Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more.
We believe that IPVanish is one of the most secure and private VPN services available.
IPVanish mainly uses the OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols and encrypts your online traffic with the ‘unbreakable’ AES-256 cipher, meaning you’re protected at all times. You can also connect using L2TP/IPsec, if you’d prefer.
IPVanish has a VPN kill switch to protect your privacy in case of a connection drop, plus a host of other advanced features to secure your web browsing. This includes SOCKS5 web proxy, which masks your IP address during P2P and VoIP connections – although this doesn’t encrypt traffic.
We also found IPVanish to be extremely safe, and free of IP or DNS leaks in our most recent tests:
IPVanish leak test results from browserleaks.com IPVanish’s leak test results when connected to its Chicago server
Logging Policy No-logs policy makes up for US jurisdiction
IPVanish doesn’t collect any user data at all, making it a no-logs VPN service.
Considering most VPN logging policies track at least server load or login information for maintenance purposes, this is what makes IPVanish a standout VPN for privacy.
In 2016, when under previous management, IPVanish was however found to be collecting logs when it handed information over to US authorities to aid in the prosecution of a user.
Since being acquired a number of times since then, IPVanish has turned things around and we have no longer concerns about its approach to user privacy.
Jurisdiction IPVanish VPN was first released in 2012 by its former US-based owner HighWinds Network Group. IPVanish has since been acquired by StackPath and in 2019 by J2 Global which are both US-based companies.
As you can see IPVanish is, and has always been, operated by companies headquartered in the US, which does have very intrusive surveillance laws and is a member of the Five-Eyes data sharing agreement.
IPVanish being based in the US is largely irrelevant though as its no-logs policy means no identifiable information is collected by the VPN provider.
Ease of Use User-friendly install with lots of advanced features
How to Install & Set Up IPVanish Screenshot of the Windows download button on the IPVanish website Beginning the installation process is as simple as clicking the button to download the relevant software from the site.
Screenshot of the progress of our IPVanish Windows download You can check the progress of the installation here, but it usually only takes a couple of minutes from start to finish.
Screenshot of the completed IPVanish download Once the software is downloaded, you'll see this screen which prompts you to run the IPVanish app.
Screenshot of IPVanish's main dashboard on its Windows app IPVanish main dashboard shows key connection info and permits server selection. We like the nice graph too.
Screenshot of IPVanish's server list in the Windows app Power users will select servers from the main dashboard rather than the server list as it's a slicker experience.
Screenshot of the server location filters in the IPVanish desktop app IPVanish server list view with filters - it's mostly pretty good but not as optimal as using the main dashboard.
Screenshot of the advanced settings in IPVanish's desktop app IPVanish is rich with advanced settings for customizing connections and it's well laid out to boot. Nice!
IPVanish’s desktop VPN apps are perfectly simple to use, even if they could do with a bit of a visual overhaul as they are starting to look a little out-dated.
The advanced privacy settings are also easy to navigate, making IPVanish suited to both VPN beginners and more experienced users.
The mobile IPVanish apps lack a few key features, such as the VPN kill switch, but they do still provide a very good, user-friendly experience.
Customer Support Helpful support with 24/7 live chat
24/7 Email support Online Resources We found IPVanish customer support agents to be friendly and helpful no matter what we asked them about the VPN service.
Thanks to a recent update, IPVanish now also has 24-hour live chat support on its website.
IPVanish also has excellent email support, which provided us with impressively well-written responses, as well as an online FAQ for straightforward solutions to the most common issues.
If for any reason IPVanish isn’t working properly, you should be able to fix it quickly by following these guides.

Lumenette allows users to send Lumens to anyone on their personal contact list via phone/email, whether they have heard of Stellar or not. We are aiming to be Venmo for crypto - a user friendly, multi-asset wallet, powered by the Stellar network.
We hope that the ability to transfer to anyone on your phone's contact list exponentially increases the number of people you can send Lumen to. This is why we built it! Previously 0 of my contacts had heard of Stellar. Now, I have sent XLM to over 1/2 of my total phone contacts.
Since we built Lumenette with the goal of reaching new users (who likely have a lot of questions on what exactly Stellar is!), we included comprehensive FAQs, and ease users into crypto with a familiar, Venmo-like interface (less 'techy' than other wallets, we think).
We also strongly focused on appealing to existing users by prioritizing features that the Stellar community wants.

Race to 10 / Share Stellar Promo!

Since the point of Lumenette is to send lumen to people who do not have it, we decided to run a promotion to encourage sending Lumen to your friends.
The first 5 Lumenette users to transfer XLM to 10 new users (and who all complete the sign up) will win lumen prizes! Important: Whoever you invite must complete the sign up in order to count in the promotion! To be eligible, you will need to post when you finish with your public key so Lumenette can verify.
Prizes! * 1st Place: 250 XLM + transfer reimbursement* * 2nd-5th Place: 100 XLM + transfer reimbursement*
*Transfer reimbursement up to 50XLM total, for total max prize of 300 and 150 XLM for winners.
This promotion is available until Thursday, May 3rd 2018 at 7 PM ET.

International

Finally, we intend to conduct business in compliance with all relevant regulations. Therefore, we are only available for use in the following countries:
Supported countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, United States, Portugal, Slovakia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia.

April 27th, 2018 Update to include more supported countries:

Portugal, Slovakia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia.
If your country is not on this list, we apologize and hope to be able to reach you in the future, as legislation in this space is constantly shifting.

Thanks!

We value the requests of the Stellar community, and are eager to implement additional features that are desired. We are working on a lot of things for the future, and if you find any issues, please let us know!
We want to thank everyone who has given us feedback on Galactic Talk and Keybase (in particular, thanks cryptobrant!). Feel free to follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest updates. iOS users can access Lumenette at: https://www.lumenette.com/download

Huawei To Advance Commercial Application Of Blockchain, Says Director Of Huawei Blockchain ProjectRecently, blockchain has been a quite hot word in China after President XI Jinping claimed the emerging technology is vital to the future of the country. ZHANG Xiaojun, the director of the Huawei blockchain project, shared his opinions on the current development of blockchain in a recent interview.When talking about the obstacles faced by the blockchain in terms of the wide application, ZHANG pointed out four points. Firstly, users hope to increase revenue through blockchain, while the technology itself is to reduce operating cost; secondly, the security of blockchain technology is still insufficient, which may lead to new security risks in the application; thirdly, the shortage of cross-chain standards brings difficulties in the large commercial application of blockchain; lastly, blockchain is becoming an isolated island, which makes POC possible but blocks it to be commercialized.What Huawei faces is the first obstacle, according to ZHANG. He said the company intends to provide customers with a clear value demonstration for blockchain, which will help sweep aside customers’ concerns and enlarge their commercial application layout.Besides, regarding opportunities brought by 5G to blockchain, he stated that the blockchain technology would not only be deployed in the core cloud but also the edge cloud. And 5G can meet demands of large bandwidth and low latency for the edge cloud blockchain in the case of large commercial use.
China Launches A Blockchain-Based Identification System For Smart CitiesChina has launched a blockchain-based identification system for smart cities, aimed at better connectivity and data sharing between these cities.The system has been developed by three institutes in the city of Shijiazhuang and will assign a unique, global digital ID to nationwide smart cities, Global Times reported on Nov. 4, citing state-run Xinhua News Agency.ZHANG Chao, director of the Zhongguancun Industry & Information Research Institute of Two-dimensional Code Technology, one of the developers of the blockchain-based ID system, said that the system was self-developed by China and will be “independently distributed and managed by China, with a unified distribution rule, a resolution of distributed storage and tamper-resistant code.”

Localbitcoins Volume Analysis Shows Countries Where Fiat is Hyperinflationary, Bitcoin Gaining Traction

Localbitcoins Volume Analysis Shows Countries Where Fiat is Hyperinflationary, Bitcoin Gaining Traction

https://preview.redd.it/56tmi00dnn621.png?width=690&format=png&auto=webp&s=491b244f26c753ded60486a31f532c434bd1587f
https://cryptoiq.co/localbitcoins-volume-analysis-shows-countries-where-fiat-is-hyperinflationary-bitcoin-gaining-traction/
Localbitcoins is the longest running and most popular peer to peer Bitcoin exchange in the world, with trading volume increasing from less than $100,000 per week in 2012 to over $50 million per week currently.
On Localbitcoins, buyers and sellers complete deals directly with each other, using the full spectrum of fiat payment methods, ranging from bank transfers to gift cards.
Here, we’ll discuss countries with rapidly increasing Localbitcoins trading volume. These are usually countries undergoing a fiat inflation crisis or countries which have enacted severe regulations on Bitcoin trading leaving peer to peer trading as the only option.
It is good to first look at Localbitcoins trading volume in the United States before identifying countries without of the ordinary volume trends. Bitcoin is legal in the United States, and the United States perhaps has the lowest fiat inflation rate in the world at 2-3 percent since the USD is the underpinning of the global fiat currency system. The trading volume on Localbitcoins in the United States gradually increased to $10 million per week during the peak of the December 2017 Bitcoin rally and has since then leveled off to $6 million per week.
Countries with relatively stable fiat currencies follow this trend of an all-time volume high during the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally, followed by a gradual decline during the 2018 bear market. This includes Australia, Canada, the European Union, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
South America Seeing Rapid Increase in Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading
South American countries that where people use Localbitcoins are seeing rapidly increasing volume throughout 2018 despite the bear market, and this appears to be due to a continent-wide fiat inflation crisis.
In Argentina, Localbitcoins trading volume has rallied from ARS 1 million to ARS 9 million since the beginning of 2017. The Argentinian Peso (ARS) has simultaneously experienced 140 percent inflation relative to the USD. The hyperinflation of the ARS itself does not yield the 9X increase in Localbitcoins trading volume, so clearly, the actual amount of peer to peer Bitcoin trading in Argentina is also rapidly increasing thanks to fiat hyperinflation.
Venezuela is experiencing the most well-known hyperinflation crisis in the world right now, with the inflation rate in excess of 400,000 percent according to the Cafe Con Leche Index, and a total collapse of the Sovereign Bolivar (VES) seeming imminent.
Localbitcoins trading volume in Venezuela is exponentially increasing, from VES 8,000 at the beginning of 2017 to VES 3.8 billion currently. It is likely that a large part of this volume rally can be explained by cryptocurrency adoption proliferating across Venezuela, as its citizens move their money into cryptocurrency in order to protect themselves against catastrophic hyperinflationary conditions. The Localbitcoins trading volume in Venezuela in terms of Bitcoin confirms this, with volume increasing from 274 Bitcoins at the beginning of 2017 to 1,743 Bitcoins currently.
Chile is also seeing a steady rise in Localbitcoins trading volume in terms of the native fiat currency the Chilean Peso (CLP). During the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally volume reached CLP 213 million per week, and in November 2018 trading volume was as high as CLP 243 million. Since April 2018 the CLP has had 19 percent inflation relative to the USD. In 2016 and 2017, the CLP was actually strengthening relative to the USD, so the inflation trend in Chile is relatively new.
Colombia has seen Localbitcoins trading volume rapidly increase from COP 230 million at the beginning of 2017 to COP 8.13 billion per week in November 2018. Simultaneously, there has been 13 percent inflation of the Colombian Peso (COP) relative to the USD since the beginning of 2017.
Actual Bitcoin volume has surged from less than 100 Bitcoins per week at the beginning of 2018 to more than 650 currently. Since Colombia is the next-door neighbor of Venezuela, perhaps this surge in Localbitcoins volume has something to do with Venezuelans obtaining the Bitcoins they need in Colombia.
In Peru, Localbitcoins weekly trading volume has steadily increased from PEN 60,000 at the beginning of 2017 to as high as PEN 3.145 million in November 2018. Simultaneously, Bitcoin volume has surged from less than 20 Bitcoins per week to 236 Bitcoins. The Peruvian Sol (PEN) has seen 10 percent inflation relative to the USD during 2018.
Overall, it is clear that fiat inflation in South America is not confined to Venezuela. Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Peru are also experiencing fiat inflation and a major uptick in Bitcoin adoption. Thanks to this, it appears that South America will be a hotspot for cryptocurrency adoption in the coming years.
India Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading Surges Due to Ban of Centralized Exchanges
The Indian Rupee (INR) has had 11 percent inflation relative to the USD since the beginning of 2018. The bigger story in India regarding Bitcoin is that the Reserve Bank of India has banned the use of bank accounts for Bitcoin activity, which has effectively banned centralized Bitcoin exchanges. This has caused a steady increase in peer to peer Bitcoin trading on Localbitcoins, which is still legal, from INR 48 million per week in May 2018 to as high as INR 122 million during November. There is some speculation that India will make Bitcoin completely illegal like its neighbor Pakistan.
Iran Sanctions Cause Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading to Spike
Crippling international sanctions on Iran were announced in September 2018 and implemented by November in response to Iran breaking its nuclear treaty. The Iranian Rial (IRR) experienced 430 percent inflation relative to the USD, going from IRR 36,000 per USD at the beginning of 2018 to IRR 190,000 per USD by September. However, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordered that everything must be done to strengthen the IRR, and the free market ended at that point. Currency traders have been executed, making the living ones scared to bid the IRR lower, and Bitcoin has been made illegal to prevent outflows of capital. Localbitcoins trading volume spiked during the September 2018 hyperinflation crisis but is currently falling quickly due to the risks associated with trading Bitcoin in Iran.
Russia and Kazakhstan Have Rising Bitcoin Trading as Fiats Experience Inflation
Russia certainly had a trading volume spike on Localbitcoins during the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally, but in general, volume is consistently rising from Russian Ruble (RUB) 750 million per week in April 2018 to RUB 1 billion per week currently. This coincides with 21 percent inflation of the RUB relative to the USD during the same period of time.
Russia’s neighbor to the south, and former part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Kazakhstan, is also seeing consistently high Localbitcoins trading volume during 2018. The Kazakhstani Tenge (KZT) has seen 17 percent inflation since April 2018 relative to the USD.
Localbitcoins trading volume data shows that peer to peer Bitcoin trading is increasing worldwide in several countries even during the 2018 Bitcoin bear market, and this is often associated with fiat hyperinflation.
In general, it is thought that if hyperinflation were to become a problem in the United States and the European Union, Bitcoin would have a chance to become the primary global currency. The hyperinflation crisis being observed in several countries worldwide provides a glimpse of what the transition from fiat to Bitcoin may look like. In some countries there is a ‘smooth’ transition, with Bitcoin volume rising as fiat collapses, while other countries experience a rough transition in which Bitcoin is made illegal, making it hard to measure Bitcoin adoption on the ground.

China has obvious advantages in these industries, and the prospects for high-tech cooperation between the two countries are broad.

Positive encryption regulations can reinvigorate the Indian economy and create billions of dollars in additional revenue for the country The analysis article pointed out that the encryption ban that the Bank of India took effect in the first quarter of 2018 caused the country’s encryption industry to be paralyzed. Positive encryption regulations can revive the troubled Indian economy. If Indian encryption is legalized, according to a rough estimate of the direct revenue generated by the country’s encryption companies, exchanges and individuals, encryption technology can bring in billions of dollars worth of extra income. Nischal Shetty, CEO of WazirX, one of the only cryptographic exchanges still in operation, recently cited the benefits of implementing aggressive cryptographic measures from an economic perspective, in addition to providing new venture capital investments to Indian start-ups, encryption technology. Development can also promote employment and provide banking services to India’s 300 million people without bank accounts. ICO can become a new global financing mechanism for Indian start-ups. He said, “We are a technology-centric country. Technology brings a lot of foreign exchange and is one of the largest employment creators in India. Encryption technology is the next technology frontier. If India bans the circulation of encrypted assets, India will not be able to Produce any relevant talents, not only will the employment opportunities be reduced, but also the investment of foreign capital will be lost.”

Let's talk (about) esperanto

Hi guys,
or should I say : Saluton!
As you may know, "monero" is an esperanto word. But what the hell is esperanto ? Well, it's as close as you get to a decentralised language.
Let's see how it works, starting with an example (then we'll go to some historical perspective).
The word"Monero" doesn't jump right out of a dictionary, it's actualy composed of three elements freely put together, one sillabus each : mon + er + o. Each has a meaning.
mon- : money
-er- : the smallest part
-o : a thing (gramatically speaking : a noun)
Which means 'monero' can be analysed as meaning : "a noun that describes the smallest part of money". Well, a coin. That's a coin.
Change the first element with 'sabl-' (that means "sand") and you get 'sablero', which means "a grain of sand". 'Neĝero' is "a snowflake" and so on.
Change the midle element from -er- to -ar- (a group), and you have a 'monaro', a bunch of money. Change it to -uj- (recipient), you have a "monujo", a wallet. And so on.
As you can see, although the elements looks somewhat english or spanish, the esperanto structure is much more logic and easy to learn, it allows you to make up words where you can't remember them. The rest of the grammar is just that simple, conjugating is sometimes easier than in your mothertongue.
But : why the hell should we be talking (about) esperanto in the first place, and how is it related to Monero ? Well, like I said, esperanto is much like a decentralized language. Let's take a step back and rewind some 150 years.
End of the 19th century, Europe. The time of revolutions has done its job, now it's all about nationalisms. Industry is booming. Colonialism is the rule. The great nations feast on Africa and India. The US hasn't rised yet, China almost doesn't exist. The WW1 didn't occur yet. It's all about Europe, and europeans values. European intellectuals have long had the idea of creating a universal language that all could speak. It's been the role of latin for a long time, now it's french, even Tolstoi writes in french, later it will be english, but still, a universal language would be great. A german priest called Martin Schleier imagines a language called Volapuk, with grammar, vocabulary, spelling and all that shit, intellectuals learn it, start writing magazines and stuff.
But hey.
Dude.
That language, there, Volapuk, is a pain in the ass. The grammar is complicated. The pronounciation is a hell. The spelling's weird. Vocabulary is hard to memorize. Let's reform the language !
The founder says : "Back off, that's my language, only I get to change it."
Okay.
Meanwhile, some jewish doctor (his name is Zamenhof) in the east of polland gets tired of so much hatred between nations, invents a language that is much easier. The Vocabulary is easy to recognize. The grammar is a child game. The spelling is clear. The pronounciation is OK, even if you have an accent we understand everybody.
This guy publishes a white paper. Some hundred of people learn it, much quicker than for Volapuk.
There are debates whether to bring minor changes to the language or not, everyone votes, the founder himself doesn't voice his opinion.
In a matter of years, Volapuk has died, esperanto took his place and scales.
Two world wars and seventy years later, an estimated million to two millions people speak esperanto, or can at least manage some everyday chat with it. I'm a part of them.
What was the plan of esperanto ? To allow people of different mothertongue to speak with each other on a neutral level. And to disrupt the nationalist ideologies. Did it work. For the first part yes, for the first part no.
How is esperanto a "decentralized language", how is it similar to a decentralised currency ?
I'm French. I learned esperanto at 20, out of ideals, I stayed in because of the community. I came of age in the esperanto world, meeting other young people, singing, drinking beer, celebrating new years eve in Germany or Poland, spending the summer in Czech republic, getting invited to Croatia, sharing jokes with Italians, Japanese, flirting with german chicks, becoming pal with Catalans, attending heavy metal concerts played by Brazilians, hanging out with Americans, drinking vodka with the polish guys, you name it.
(You can learn esperanto on duolingo, or on http://lernu.net Learn more on the language here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto )
Ten years later (I'm 30), I realise bitcoin has surged, I start investing in crypto, I see this "Monero" coin, and realize I'm not alone.
Something bugs me : if you compare esperanto and cryptocurrencies, the ideology and principles are roughly the same. Go beyond the borders and national sentiment. So why is it that cryptos are taking off so rapidly, when esperanto hasn't ?
Don't give me the same usual crap like "a universal language can't happen", this is like saying "a global independent currency can't happen".
There must be a thing. I'm afraid it's greed. It's easier to install a wallet and get an account on Kraken, that to spend two months learning a language, be it as easy as esperanto (believe me, esperanto is that easy). What do you think ?
Cheers guys, thanks for reading,
or should I say, Dankon por la legado!

What is Facite?

The main goal of the Facite investment project is to develop the financial and economic environment in Kazakhstan using blockchain technology. The Facite Foundation built and operates a mining center in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan based on geographical conditions, government policies, and electricity schemes for the mining industry. The mining center can accommodate up to 2 million mining machines with a size of 180 hectares (ha) and can be expected to produce stable and consistent revenue generation based on cheap electricity. Some of the revenues from the mining center are shared with Facite token holders and the profits from the Facite Foundation's projects in Kazakhstan are also allocated to the community.
About Facite Most people want a stable increase of their assets, but in general, stable increases refer to low returns. There are a few different ways to accumulate assets, whether it be aggressive or conservative, depending on personal preferences, but the fact that people cannot predict even a single second of the future applies to everyone, and is not limited to specific individuals, groups, or countries.
Even amidst a global economic downturn, one can make profits from aggressively investing, but if those investments rely heavily on high-risk assets that are not well positioned for a crisis, there will be consequences. This is why people try to find ways to steadily grow assets, but it is not easy to find good alternatives. However, there are common methods that are considered safe investments, such as investments in real estate, international currencies, or long-short funds.
Those who want to invest in real estate might have difficulty understanding tricky laws and regulations, will have to think about the chance of fraud, and have to study the floating population and the environment, which makes it hard to make it worth one’s while relative to the time that needs to be spent to be successful. There is also the chance of one’s initial plans being ruined by government regulations. Meanwhile, investing in land is also insufficient in terms of returns, because somebody has to construct a building on the land to increase its value.
The trend of investing in international currencies or investing in long-short funds has long since begun. However, fund investment, which focuses on making steady returns, regardless of the decline in monetary value and the fluctuation of stock prices caused by global financial crises and geopolitical risks, is a structure that is very difficult to secure a safe return for investors in challenging situations.
As economies grow and incomes rise, everyone has trouble developing proper asset management methods, yet few people have clear solutions regarding how to invest well.
As a result, people with no previous investment experience have felt the need for dramatic and reliable investment destinations, and as income inequality has become more severe, people need an opportunity to quickly proliferate their assets with low entry barriers.
Meanwhile, Bitcoin garnered worldwide attention since early 2017.
Although it was created in 2009, it had not received much attention from the market, but it has grown explosively worldwide as it emerged as a blue ocean of the investment industry since 2017.
Investors who were looking for low-risk, stable growth cheered the leap of Bitcoin, and they joined the coin investment, but because of its infamous volatility, it has since significantly lost its attractiveness.

Correlation of central bank warnings with price chart

My shower thought this morning: we've seen many warnings over the years from central banks around the world about cryptocurrencies. They general warn off banks, citizens, and others from getting involved with or investing in crypto.
I sifted through coindesk and found articles that highlight such warnings, and then correlated those against the price of BTC. Here is the graph:
http://imgur.com/a/1VGPX
Note that there is a big bunching of a relatively high number of warnings in the first half of 2014. This makes sense as it plays into the fears of the Mt. Gox collapse. Then there are a few scattered warnings over the next few years.
What is striking to me is this: had the central banks instead possessed any kind of enlightened understanding and selfless disposition, they would have been encouraging citizens to acquire small amounts of crypto investments. Had they done this, rather than warning them off, their countries and its citizens would have been far better off. Instead, the central banks are actually prolonging the impoverished state of many throughout the world.
Here is a list of the articles mentioning the warnings. Note how the warnings are heavily weighted from developing impoverished nations. Someone should really be attempting to correct the wrongheaded approach that some central banks from these developing countries are taking with respect to cryptocurrencies. They are ultimately only hurting themselves and their nations.

A large part of North Korea’s underground nuclear test facility is unusable due to the collapse of a cavity inside the mountain after the latest test-detonation occurred

Youtube 419 scam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uMGUDOgukQ (not this channel, but Youtube's machinations)
If you've got Time on your hands, read the first comment at the link I posted above, again:
Now there are two studies, both by groups of respected seismologists. One finds that one of the "aftershocks" was in fact the collapse of the cavity created by the explosion. @JNBPage -- again, who wrote the only non-garbage story so far -- quotes the key bit. 3/8

  • "seismologists" = 181 = "fire breathing dragon"
  • "AAA: seismologists" = 1776 trigonal (I've posted about this numbedate a few times very recently)
  • "AAA: seismologists" = 321 bacon
This spelling is an obfuscation, however:
  • "size-mologists" = 188 = "Bavarian Illuminati"
  • "size-mologists" = 188 = "Alphabet Conspiracy"
quotes the key bit
...and 'S' is special:
"aftershock" = 106 = "magic number" = 106 = "the number" = 106 = "prophecy"
See the upside down 419 scam:

A tip: if you see some bolded words in a comment or news article, add the word "bold" to the spell:
the vying kings sail heaving seas...

  • "expedition" = 121 = "revelation" (which is pretty interesting in itself: "the great debate" = 121)
  • "bold expedition" = 154 / 73 / 1212 trigonal / 2270 squares (which is even more interesting)

As mentioned above: "Water" = "Dark Magic" = "The One" (ie. 67, which reduced to 13)
  • "Dark Magic" = 189 primes
  • "Words to live by" = 189 = "Enslave humanity"

Thinker = TH inker The Inker 33 Inker
"The Black Cube" = 1,247 squares

"TimeCube" = 616 trigonal

A different sort of metaphor:
ie. The Sand Borg Revealed.
"AAA: The Sand Borg Revealed" = ???
"C: The Sand Borg Revealed" = ???
See the Sand Borg Revealed (ie. the sand-witches)
  • "Sand Witch" = 153 bacon
  • "The Village" = 153 bacon
  • "The Illuminati" = 153

Jeffrey Lewis thinks this whole thing is overblown:
No, North Korea’s nuclear test mountain did not collapse. (A note in place of the short thread I will write after I drop my children at school.)

You heard the man, fellow Abjurers, go root out the remaining tunnel rats... (warning: they're gross)
You heard the man, fellow Abjurers, go root out the remaining cyphers ... (he is implying more keys remain to be found)

A comment on the NK test site collapse: https://www.reddit.com/worldnews/comments/8evmqm/north_korea_isnt_closing_its_nuclear_test_site_it/dxytc0v/
If the mountain collapsed nuclear fallout would spread all over the Asian.
Grammatically awkward right? (ie. Orc-ward)
  • "nuclear fallout" = 161 (ie. golden ratio)
"The Asian(s)" does not mean what you think it does...

Two very plausible explanations for their site closure spring to mind, in addition to "it's ruined":
1) They're lying and the site is not closed. Lying and doing the exact opposite of what they promised to do is literally their MO
2) They proved their design works so there's no point wasting more fuel repeating the test
Both of those are equally as likely as that the site has been completely destroyed. And a whole lot more likely than "and all the scientists and production facilities that were right there in the tunnel where the bomb was about to go off were destroyed as well!"
  • "it's ruined" = 119 = "master plan"
Another face of the same story? (Keep in mind the Nigerian Scam stuff listed above: 419 = 911):

From the wired article, linked above:

He waited for the questions, and for the next two hours, there were plenty of them. The word risk came up. The most dramatic comment came from computer science professor and cryptographer Eran Tromer. With the flair of Hercule Poirot revealing the murderer, he announced that he’d discovered a weakness. He spun a wild scenario involving a stolen phone, a second hacked phone, and a bank robbery. Ozzie conceded that Tromer found a flaw, but not one that couldn’t be fixed.
At the end of the meeting, Ozzie felt he’d gotten some good feedback. He might not have changed anyone’s position, but he also knew that unlocking minds can be harder than unlocking an encrypted iPhone...
chuckle
...Still, he’d taken another baby step in what is now a two-years-and-counting quest.
ie. Santa is always watching...
