Round up of Cryptocurrency News #5 Week 03/08 - 09/08

Welcome again to another recap and the first full week of the new month after breaking the downward trend on the monthly!
Firstly, from last weeks uptrend we have seen the market consolidate at this level throughout the week with a steady upward climb at the start of the week to a balance out above $11.5k for Bitcoin towards the end. For the market we have a total increase of $17.5B over the week but a 1% decrease of btc dominance moving mainly toward Chainlink and other altcoins.
Closing the week we have had some altcoin action, Ethereum breaking $400 midweek but now staying back in a nice channel between $350-$410 since the start of August. But, Chainlink killing it after breaking $10 and currently sitting comfortably above $13!! Other altcoins that have reaped rewards and I'm keeping an eye on are:
I have picked these as i have noticed they are usually the first movers or the biggest gainers after the market goes red. Chasing those quick gains!
What about the news for this week?

Consensus 2018 Report (Continuous Updates Through May 17th)

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

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

At times Twitter is not the platform that allows the proper conveyance of engagement, 280 characters is generally not enough; especially for myself. Given the topic here I ask that you allow me the grace of a proper platform in order to do this in a manner that leaves little question to intention.
I want to preface this given rarely do I have to do these in public. Myself, the Dogecoin Core Developers believe that the space is wonderful, diverse, creative, and engaging across the several thousands of assets that exist. It is neither my intention nor our intention to prohibit, attack, dissuade or otherwise disincline something from existing in the space. However every now and again projects do pop up that seem to want their "upstart" in the space to begin with attacking Dogecoin. As a community driven asset with deeply communal ties to the entire space there are moments where even we pause and ask for clarity. This can help to gauge intentions, cause and more than once has led to showing someone as a "bad actor" in the space. We have spent over half a decade working with the Doge/Dogecoin branding, there are many assets with the name which we believe only helps to engage further people into cryptocurrency.
So Doge Token.
DogeCoin is technologically behind
However, it’s core technology has not been upgraded much, and it has not been updated in well over a year latest releases from 2015.
Github can be hard to manage, and understand. What I fail to fathom is how you missed that we have had 7 releases since 2015. Dogecoin Releases. Further for the coming 1.14 release there was active and ongoing communal interaction and input along the way as Dogecoin is a social consensus asset not just network/chain consensus based. Path to 1.14 Which for noting puts our public start into 1.14 barely a year beyond the 1.10 DogeParty release. (Which happened in 2016, where you state nothing has been done since 2015.)
Further as is shown there in the above posting 1.16-dev shows work. 1.17-dev Shows work as of 11 days ago even as we are waiting on final push for 1.14. This all counters your claim that there has been no releases, that nothing has been upgraded much.
If you would care to explain why your white paper states otherwise I would be willing to listen, especially given as it is rather public what we are doing, when we are doing it, and further more who is doing what. We are community based, and there are comments on both @dogecoin along with @dogecoin_devs both have been active in keeping communities updated. I sourced most of the postings for the large post from reddit, and that is only half of the updates. We have also spent time among the telegram communities, slack, discord, Steam communities, IRC communities across a span of multiple languages no less interacting, updating, and engaging with users.
Rolling back into the initial statement, "Dogecoin is technologically behind". I am curious where you see this, personally. This was gone into recently, by someone else who screamed the same things. Reality of Dogecoin Perhaps you missed this as well?
Doge Token lives on the Stellar blockchain
Stellar is the one of the fastest growing and largest blockchain platforms out there.
Stellar nodes/validators 43 have uptime in the past 24 hours.
Dogecoin Nodes This private node saw 420 other ones in 24 hours. (There are other versions listed there, they are forked coins that did not change the basis so appear on our node relay maps.) Nevermind what our public nodes see daily.
Do not take this as a hit to Stellar, it has been around since July 2014. It is old in the space which is amazing it has lasted given how many projects die. However stating that it is one of the fastest growing and largest blockchains, is a bit of a stretch. It is a rather creative stretch in reality. I understand they function differently than Dogecoin in their handling, still "largest blockchain platforms out there"; just to note.
ETH 6439 July 2015
BCH 786 BTCU 698 August 2017 / January 2016
BSV 485 November 2018
I got fairly far down the list on CMC and to continue seemed overly harsh as the trend continued.
Constant updates and support further improve the Stellar blockchain platform.
Factual they also do micro releases (small tweak releases) and they do master branch implementation and developmental work. A bit different than many things in the space.
Shibe loves Stellar.
It is a bit mutual. Dogecoin is such an interesting blockchain and serious project, that peek the advisors we have ties, old ones. Even as Stellar grew over the years more than a few of their services did drops to Dogecoin just due to the history between the assets. OneCred rip now This was one of the early services for Stellar.
PoW vs Green Tech
DogeCoin: Much Hash, Such Work
Even though DogeCoin has many orders of magnitude fewer transactions and smaller transactional value, it now exceeds over 20TH/s in terms of hashrate.
You are not wrong, in fact the other day we were one of the tops for hashrate in the entire space. It has been a long while since we were near 20TH/s though hashrate 9/22/2017 was the last time we were under 20TH/s. Just as a note, more transactions does not mean more energy spent as the energy spent is per block which contains multiple transactions.
The amount of electricity wasted to power stagnant technology negatively impacts the environment
You seem to have missed that Dogecoin is AuxPoW, this means that Dogecoin mining is a byproduct of Litecoin mining. Which is why our hashrates are generally close. This also takes the energy "waste" down to running a node, which most networks in the space have. Deciding it is wasteful simply for your narrative in Dogecoin's case; seems short sighted and a bit targeted.
and reduces mining rewards.
Given there is a very low energy cost via AuxPoW, there is not a reduction in mining rewards. Further given Dogecoin entered the "legacy" mining period we are beyond halvening, we are forever to the 10k block rewards which facilitate ongoing transactional functionality. Transaction fees, along with block rewards go to the miners; there is no reduction to the mining rewards for the miners.
Despite all this waste
Given the network is rather efficient, I do not understand the implication of waste.
DogeCoin is still theoretically much less secure than Stellar.
Based around what theoretical reference? Dogecoin is five and a half years old, in actual reality of functional existence ..Dogecoin has not had an attack that in any manner made the blockchain less secure. Further more blockchain audits, independent security reviews, network health reviews tend to be part of the listing process for the higher level compliant functioning exchanges. To date we have yet to fail one, shutter or even has a questionable passing.
You state Dogecoin is insecure in theory.. Did you miss that Dogecoin follows Bitcoin's upstream? The codebase is public, if you wish to state we are insecure I will ask you for the proof of your claims, it is a rather grave implication to make without cause. I assume you have found something everyone else has missed, care to share?
Doge Token: Such Green, Much token
Transparency and Safety
DogeCoin: Much scam, Such Sad
Remember the days of tipbots. Yes? Well we’re sure things didn’t end very well for the most avid tippers.
Pardon? I ask this honestly as we have had multiple tipbots ongoing for multiple platforms; with no issues in assorted communities that have had no issues. Surely you are aware that the tipbots, are external, third party offerings; they are unattached and uninvolved in the actual Dogecoin project. I state this because you seem to be of the mind that because something happened externally, on third party offerings, by third party developers; that it somehow reflects on Dogecoin itself.
Applications built on DogeCoin are often closed source and non-contract enforced.
Discord - Frog's
Discord - BA
Discord - BitsBot
Discord - MSFT
Twitter - Beir's
Twitter - TipDoge
Reddit - Dogetipbot - Mohland - Redacted code
Reddit - Dogetipbot - Mohland - Redacted code
Reddit - AltcoinTip -Vindimy
Reddit - SoDogeTip
IRC - Doger - One of the longest running tipbots in the space.
IRC - Doger Soak
Slack - Val
Telegram - Peakshift
These are just the ones off the top of my head.
We only mourn for the nice shibes who were victimized by these viles scammers.
Broad statements are made here in relation to all the tipbots. The one that did have issues, you seem to have missed was not actually tied to the project. Further more it was not just a tipbot that was impacted but an entire company. DogeTipBot.
Doge Token: Such Clear, Much Trust
Doge Token cannot be attacked with 51% attack and this makes us invulnerable.
You are correct, it does not take a 51% attack to take Doge Token down. It takes sadly removing two nodes from the Stellar network down to take everything, in the fullest down. Due to their more centralized nature of issuance, and operation the base network under Doge Token is publicly known to have several issues. Recently Stellar had a review by an external third party. Stellar security which goes on to detail several known issues in relation to the base functionality methods of Stellar. Understanding that on the base, anyone can claim anything noting that David himself came out to reply seems important. Further adding to this is just what KAIST is along with why it is important to note that it was not just random people making these claims.
Stellar exploit allowed 2.2bn Lumens to be created 2017. This was an onchain direct exploit.
Ongoing issues with Stellar, one which related to SDEX where Doge Token exists bug reporting.
Stellar Dex had an issue disclosed, which rather went interestingly.
Now the very important distinction here, what I have listed above are on chain issues, they are flaws exploits, problems related to the base code of functionality of Stellar itself; not third party issues. They are also public knowledge to be issues do please do not assume I am taking a swing at their project.
In the interest of disclosure there have been third party troubles relating to Stellar as well.
There was the BlackWallet hack Jan 2018 hack that resulted in 400kUSD stolen.
This makes Doge Token more trust-worthy than DogeCoin.
I will note that your entire white paper is based around false claims, baseless speculation, very easily disproved comments about the Dogecoin project, and further more implied relations which are not the actual basis of anything. We have tried in vain repeatedly to contact your project, and you have resisted.
I understand the space is huge, in fact we find it wonderful that it is so diverse. What we pause at, and what will always pause at are projects that make baseless claims, attacks, spread misinformation and bluntly put, lie. Whatever your intentions are this is not the best way to step into the space, especially given we have already had to answer for your projects comments, and we are also very curious why you took a logo without credit to the artist.
In terms of trust? Dogecoin has been here for over half a decade, our engagements are public, our codebase is public, our communications. Our communities are user driven, our third party platforms are also user driven. Where do you find fault in the trust-worthiness given who we are is rather public, we engage in the space openly as people, we are honest, direct and very proactive in relation to the entire userbase.
Sadly, the same cannot be said for you. With this it is our hope that you do correct your statements, that you do make things clearer, further more crediting the artist of your logo would also be kindly. Your methods are deceptive, your entire whitepaper is made up of libelous commentary. I do hope we can find a middle ground that does not take this much further given your stance thus far as been to mislead users by making grossly incorrect comments to further your own personal gains.

El dinero es deuda, ¿como evitar la dominación del capitalismo agresivo?(TTIP yFMI)

Decía el otro día un compañero en la plaza que no recuerdo (pero el lo puede decir) no se si exactamente así pero en síntesis :
-Hoy en día las guerras no se hacen con balas, se hacen guerras economicas
Y no puedo estar más de acuerdo, pues estamos viendo con Grecia como se asedia un pais sin el uso de una sola arma, aunque muchos también pensarían como yo que puede ser aún más duro si cabe llevar un pueblo al extremo del hambre y la pobreza y perecer en una larga agonía, y lo más grave de todo es que en el asedio no sufriran daño los ricos, ni tendran que reconstruir lo que las bombas destrozan, y como en un desahucio de los que tantos se intentan parar en España, será el Banco quien se quede los derechos de la soberanía.
Y esto lo sabemos, lo observamos con impotencia, como aquel que ve estallar un volcán y no tiene donde correr.
No hay que ser un chaman para saber en un causa-efecto, que Grecia es solo el inicio hacia una carrera de embargos de paises completos con los cabos y bien atados mediante los tratados que se están maquinado TTIP, las empresas gobernando el mundo en una trampa mortal para el planeta.
¿quien tiene realmente la culpa? ¿el dinero, la ambición, etc ?
porque para encontrar la solución a cualquier problema tienes que ver el fallo en el mecanismo, adjunto un video, donde vereis las claves del TTIp como una manera de generar una deuda constante de forma que garantice la perpetuidad de la deuda y por consiguiente de forma planetaria consiga la soberanía de los pueblos mediante la Deuda.
Los bancos como vinculo de poder.
Cómo los bancos crean dinero (y poder)
Insisto es realmente el dinero el causante?, creo que más bien es como se aplica el dinero la cuestion.
Doy por hecho que es un debate y que yo exponga algo no quiere decir que sea la solución, si no desde mi punto de vista basado en el porque y como se genera la deuda exponer en mi imaginación el freno de dicha deuda. En esta guerra levantar trincheras ya no es cavar tampoco, tal vez requiere defenderse con la misma arma que esta "matando"
como escapar de la deuda - la criptomoneda
Una criptomoneda o criptodivisa (del inglés cryptocurrency) es un medio digital de intercambio. La primera criptomoneda que empezó a operar fue Bitcoin en 2009, y desde entonces han aparecido muchas otras
fuente --
.Al comparar una criptomoneda con el dinero fiduciario la diferencia más notable es la forma en que ningún grupo o particular puede acelerar la producción de dinero y usar éste ilegal o abusivamente de manera significativa, ya que sólo se genera una cierta cantidad de unidades colectivamente, a una velocidad que está limitada por un valor definido con anterioridad y conocido públicamente. Han aparecido ya docenas de criptomonedas con diferentes especificaciones, pero la mayoría de ellas son similares o derivadas de la primera que ha sido totalmente implementada; el Bitcoin. En los sistemas de criptomonedas se garantiza la seguridad, integridad y equilibrio de sus estados de cuentas (contabilidad) por medio de un entramado de agentes (transferencia de archivo segmentada o transferencia de archivo multifuente) que se verifican (desconfían) mutuamente llamados , que son, en su mayoría, público en general y protegen activamente la red (el entramado) al mantener una alta tasa de procesamiento de algoritmos, con la finalidad de tener la oportunidad de recibir una pequeña propina, que se reparte de manera aleatoria.
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::el rescate de chipre
  1. 2013 Bitcoins - La moneda sin Estado mantenida por una red de PCs resolver matemáticas en problemas-- se ha incrementado su valor desde la crisis financiera golpeó Chipre. Pero son Bitcoins realmente vale todo eso? ¿O es que simplemente ofrecen una lección de cómo confiar rápidamente en el sistema económico de un país puede ir y venir?
  4. retos futuros de la criptomoneda
  5. McCaleb describe OpenCoin como un intento de construir una red bitcoin que no dependen de la minería para procesar transacciones.

Supongo que Pablo echenique podría apotar mucha información al respecto, pues en su perfil de cuentas de transparencia figura esta moneda , ¿será la criptomoneda una formula de escape a la deuda y el poder?
la moneda social como metodo de defensa en los pequeños nucleos.
Si bien es cierto que la criptomoneda pudiera salvar en cierta forma, y cada vez hay más avances al respecto no es menos cierto que la moneda social puede hacer de salvavidas en momentos especialmente críticos.
fuente---------- ¿Qué es una moneda social?
Una moneda social es una herramienta creada y utilizada por comunidades, colectivos y particulares al objeto de poder facilitar intercambios tanto de productos como de servicios o de conocimientos. Otra definición, en este caso de Bernard Lietaer, considera al dinero local como “Un acuerdo dentro de una comunidad de usar algo como medio de intercambio”.
Las monedas sociales se caracterizan por lo siguiente:
Son sistemas monetarios de vecindad basados en la confianza y la reciprocidad, Se diferencian del dinero de curso legal pues en ocasiones pueden perder valor con el tiempo (fenómeno denominado “oxidación” o interés negativo) con el objetivo de que no se pueda acumular, Pueden ser tan variados en su forma y en su funcionamiento como lo son las monedas nacionales de curso legal. Denominándose monedas complementarias, se refieren a que algunas de estas monedas pretenden complementar las deficiencias del dinero legal con las ventajas que tiene este recursos como dinamizador del comercio local de proximidad, del autoempleo y de optimización de los recursos locales.
Con monedas “alternativas”, se refieren entonces a que algunas monedas pretenden crear un sistema alternativo y diferente al actual utilizando la moneda social como una herramienta más.
¿Por qué utilizar las monedas sociales?
Los recursos – productos, servicios y saberes – son en muchos casos ignorados por la economía formal. De la misma manera le sucede al trabajo doméstico, a la reutilización y el reciclaje de todo tipo de enseres o al trabajo que puede denominarse voluntario o de ayuda mutua. Estos recursos, una vez convertidos en moneda social, crean riqueza y bienestar social en las comunidades donde se implementan.
¿Cómo funciona?
Existen diferentes formas de crear dinero social:
Desde los bancos de tiempo y las redes de trueque: Se crea a partir de los propios intercambios de servicios (bancos de tiempo) o de productos (redes de trueque). Los bancos de tiempo usan la divisa tiempo y las redes de trueque una moneda social propia y característica. En ambos casos se denominan monedas de “crédito mutuo”, O las monedas soportadas por euros que se “compran” con moneda de curso legal y cuyo objetivo principal es el apoyo del comercio local de proximidad. Estas últimas son más conocidas y populares. Se puede utilizar de diferentes maneras, según:
¿Qué ventajas tienen?
Las principales ventajas son las siguientes:
  1. Fomenta la economía local: Como herramienta económica local, como se ha visto en el video del Sol-Violette en Francia, una moneda social no es un fin en sí mismo, sino que sirve para generar más riqueza y acelerar el consumo y la producción locales.
  2. Impide las burbujas económicas: Contrariamente a una divisa internacional, una moneda social no se puede acumular ni funcionar fuera de una zona determinada. Además tiene una cantidad limitada según su número de usuarios. No hay especulación, ni inflación, deflación, etc...
  3. Impulsa las relaciones entre "vecinos": Permite dinamizar el barrio, conocerse y generar dignidad en esta zona. Con una moneda social, comprar en una tienda con esta herramienta significa apostar por lo local, aparte de crear una identidad propia como la moneda de tu barrio o localidad.
  4. Genera participación ciudadana: Una moneda social existe a base de la riqueza que crea la gente con sus bienes y servicios. Asimismo permite empoderar a la gente quién lo utiliza, permitiéndole autoorganizarse hasta involucrarse en la política local.
Monedas sociales: qué son y cuántas funcionan en España 1. Hay más de 70 en España, pero en todo el mundo se estima que superan las 5.000. No están admitidas por los bancos convencionales, pero se han convertido en una alternativa para adquirir bienes y servicios en redes comerciales locales.

En este ultimo punto podemos poner el mundo jjaaj pero si regresamos al video del principio, que nos explica porque el dinero es deuda, entenderemos que poner un impuesto al sol es eliminar una de las "trincheras" del pueblo para la liberación de este asedio hacia la soberanía de los pueblos.
Y no me queda en este punto más que decir que nadie debería cumplir la tasa de peaje de impuesto al sol, debería negarse rotundame a los pagos de este tipo pese a las consecuencias que supone la desobediencia, pues el mal como consecuencia de aceptar este pago es rídiculo frente a las consecuencias y cesión de libertadas que afiancen el poder.
obviamente es mi opinión al respecto
Teniendo en cuenta que es lo que genera deuda, las respuestas deberían venir dadas como métodos que impidan el crecimiento de ésta. sin embargo las deudas adquiridas están ahi y los pagos son inminentes, pero esto no quiere decir que sea imposible la recuperación del pueblos, donde escapar de las trampas del poder es una guerra.
Impidamos el TTIP, y cerremos la espita a los bancos, muchas cosas están en nuestra mano.

Five biggest Bitcoin disasters of all time; read why should not invest in virtual currency

The frenzy around world's biggest virtual currency, Bitcoin, has reached a level where it's impossible for you not to think about investing in it. Every day Bitcoin is setting up a new benchmark, luring you to become a part of this unpredictable financial cycle. At the same time, some financial institutions such as JP Morgan Chase and Berkshaire Hathway have debunked the "bitcoin mania", calling it a "fraud" and warning people against falling for the "Bitcoin trap". Being the most popular and an unregulated, or independent currency, Bitcoin is vulnerable to online sharks - hackers - waiting for the right time to dig in their claws to steal money. A recent example: hackers stole over $80 million in Bitcoins by breaking into Slovenian-based virtual currency mining marketplace NiceHash on Wednesday. As per Coindesk, a similar virtual currency exchange, one third of the two third Bitcoins mined are lost forever. Reuters says more than 9, 80,000 Bitcoins have been stolen from exchanges since 2011, roughly around $1, 57, 780, 04900 as per the current price. The reason for disappearance can be anything like hacking, or hardware failure. So is Bitcoin a monetary revolution - and you must be a part of it - or should you keep a distance? Bitcoin advocates swear by its anonymous founder Satoshi Nakamoto's super complex algorithm called Blockchain, an online distributed ledger system that maintains the data related to every single Bitcoin transaction. Bitcoins are stored in an open online decentralised ledger where every single transaction is verified by the cryptocurrency miners spread all over the world, competing with each other for a bitcoin reward. Every miner can access the ledger and the system reflects each small development. They say the system is impossible to hack as it's not centralised like Federal Reserve Bank of the US, or any other central bank. The mainstream institutions pose the same argument saying since there's no solid system to back it up if things go haywire, so it's not reliable. In entirety, it seems like a zero sum game. But before you take the plunge, read these five biggest financial disasters associated with Bitcoin that pose serious questions on its reliability.
Silk Road that was full of rocks Ross Ulbricht, the pseudonymous proprietor of the website Silk Road, used Bitcoin for illegal transactions in drugs and arms. For two years between 2011 and 2013, Silk Road became a favourite online marketplace - completely anonymous from law enforcement agencies - for drug mafias, and a headache for authorities. People sold drugs worth millions on the website, and all transactions were done using Bitcoin. Drug mafias could easily buy any contraband imaginable at a single platform, just like Amazon or eBay. Within months, the website became the leader of the "darknet", with over 900,000 users and the annual turnover of $1 billion. Ulbricht was arrested in October 2013, and the site was shut down. But soon, it was surpassed by similar "darknet" websites that operated secretively, using domain names like .onion. Ulbricht was convicted for life on drug trafficking, criminal enterprise, aiding and abetting distribution of drugs and money laundering.
Instant rise and fall of BitInstant The chief executive officer (CEO) of Bitcoin exchange, BitInstant, Charlie Shrem, a 27-year-old young ambitious entrepreneur was fascinated by the idea of having a currency with no third party control after he heard about it from a friend at the age of 19 in 2011. After he bought a couple of bitcoins - at a dirtcheap price at that time - he started Bitcoin exchange from his home and soon caught the attention of young investors like Winklevoss brothers who pumped in over $1.3 million in his company. It was a meteoric rise for, and so was its fall. After he moved to a nice office with over 30 people working for him, the company partnered with giants like Walmart, Walgreens, and Duane Reade where anyone could buy Bitcoins through BitInstant. The business was good and growing with revenue reaching over $1 million in a month, but greed has no limit. Shrem started facilitating transactions on 'darknet' leader Silk Road, and soon he was in the FBI net. After he was arrested in 2016, he pleaded guilty in the court. He claimed he facilitated one customer, BTC King owner Robert M. Faiella, whose customers (or drug mafias) were using Silk Road. They both were accused of the sale of Bitcoins worth $1 million to Silk Road. Shrem was sentenced to two years in jail. This incident sent shockwaves in the Bitcoin world, and people started associating the virtual currency as a means to launder money.
Mt Gox's $460 million 'gift' to investors Tokyo-based Mt Gox was another large exchange company for the virtual currency that met the same fate as BitInstant. The company had already lost over 80,000 Bitcoins, as per the Daily Beast, when Mt Gox CEO Mark Karpeles bought it from Jed McCaleb in 2011, but Jed hid these details from Karpeles. Initially started as an online space for trading of cards for a game called 'Magic: The Gathering', Mt Gox soon shifted to Bitcoin trading. The company was in trouble from the start, but Karpeles kept the secret under carpet for long. February 2014 brought doom for Mt Gox when Karpeles informed the authorities that over 850,000 Bitcoins worth $450 million had disappeared; hackers must be super rich if you compare it with current Bitcoin price. After this, people across the world started believing that perhaps Bitcoin needs to be regulated like fiat currencies to rid such fiascos. Karpeles was found guilty of the improper use of electronic funds and embezzling a total of $2.7 million of customer funds. 'WannaCry' wreaked havoc in 150 countries WannaCry virus hit computers of major corporations in over 150 countries in May this year. Panic spread across the world as message saying "Ooops, your files have been encrypted!" popped up on the compromised computers. The cryptocurrency faced another backlash when hackers demanded "ransom" money in Bitcoins to open the encrypted files. The hackers sought $300 ransom in Bitcoin from every compromised computer, giving people three-day time failing which they threatened to delete the locked files. Bitcoin allows users to make anonymous transactions and remain anonymous. This makes the system sophisticated to crack in case of such attacks, and equally favourable to cyberattackers.
$80 million Bitcoin heist at NiceHash Bitcoin mining marketplace NiceHash reported on Wednesday that hackers stole nearly $80m in Bitcoins from the exchange. Ever since the company informed the law enforcement agencies, the operation has been stopped and users have been told to change password and other personal details. It was "a highly professional attack with sophisticated social engineering", NiceHash head of marketing Andrej P Skraba told the Guardian. The company has so far lost around 4,700 Bitcoins worth about $80.02 million at current prices. The official website of the exchange says the service is currently unavailable and that the matter is being investigated. "Clearly, this is a matter of deep concern and we are working hard to rectify the matter in the coming days. In addition to undertaking our own investigation, the incident has been reported to the relevant authorities and law enforcement and we are co-operating with them as a matter of urgency," the company said in a statement.
