[77 mbtc] Quizchain2 Block 77 (Stage One)

Thank you for playing the quizchain.
I publish this block out of schedule for two reasons.
First is that I want to use the symbolic value of today's date (July 7th).
Second is that this will be the first and only two stages block.
The first stage is this one. I publish a question and post a prize of 77 mbtc. Funding transaction below:
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/ccf5ad645f069dfe263e3df63c906ed6ce449813b968c12c0f862b475014b4bb
I will give no information on solution format, no first digits of MD5 hash, nothing. I do disclose that this one has no TOMI field, but that is all. You are on your own completely. Satoshi did not give any hint either when he published this years ago.
You do have about two weeks of time to think about it. It should be possible to solve, since someone as dumb as me solved it without any hint.
This puzzle was definitely written freely by Satoshi, as opposed to the first block 77, which was only written within the limitations of letters he could force into the genesis block address.
And I will publish the complete solution as the Second stage of this block. This solution will in turn be the question for the Second stage, which will have the final 777 mbtc prize.
Either someone sees it completely without hint or it just becomes a race to confirmation once the Second stage is published. Part of the interest for me in doing this layered block is to see which of these alternatives happens.
I will publish my solution and the Second stage of this block once block 76 is solved (even if this one is solved earlier). If it is not solved until then, I will publish it at a random unannounced time, since it will be a lottery anyway who gets to claim the prize for this block.
Question: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=155054.0
Format: [solution]
Good luck with this one and stay tuned for the solution in about two weeks from now, which will double as the final Second stage of this block, with a 777 mbtc prize.
Hint 1: I already knew that "Satoshi" was chosen as an anagram of "Thomas" when I solved this. That helps with the solution, though not very much.
Comment 1 (no hint): One of my favorite lines in this outing post, which makes a very different kind of sense when knowing Satoshi wrote it:
"I'm comfortable with my legacy."
Hint two: Satoshi writes "Today, Satoshi's true identity has become a mystery. But at the time, I thought I was dealing with a young man of Japanese ancestry who was very smart and sincere. I've had the good fortune to know many brilliant people over the course of my life, so I recognize the signs."
This is Satoshi's hint right in the post on how to decode it. After removing the misdirecting part, I will rearrange the first four and last four words a bit:
Today
I
Satoshi's true identity
recognize the signs.
That in itself is a pretty clear message. To translate it for those who may not get it even in this format:
Today I come out. If you want to know Satoshi's true identity, recognize the signs.
Comment 2 (no hint): Another favorite line in this post:
"But I came by my bitcoins through luck, with little credit to me. " That's Satoshi talking and while at first glance this is just self-deprecating irony, he's actually right. There was little credit to Hal Finney until now...
Hint 3 (last hint): When solving the genesis block puzzle, I had the advantage of having solved this one already, so I knew what to look for. Was much easier to recognize the signs in the genesis block that way.
Comment 3 (last comment and still not a hint to solve this block): Another favorite line in this post:
"I had made an attempt to create my own proof of work based currency, called RPOW. So I found Bitcoin..."
Remove a couple of words from that and you get:
"I made an attempt to create my own proof of work based currency, called Bitcoin."
Update: Now the solution to Satoshi's puzzle is published the remaining resistance to solving the block comes from having to find the format of the solution. The format was used in one previous block. The block I will publish tomorrow will give a further clue on what previous block that was.

Is BTC living up to the hype?

Had you invested $27 on Bitcoin when it was produced by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009 your financial investment would now deserve over $37,000,000.
Commonly considered as the best financial investment automobile of perpetuity, Bitcoin has actually seen a meteoric increase throughout 2017 going from $777 all the method to $17,000.
Producing millionaires out of opportunistic financiers and leaving banks open-mouthed, Bitcoin has actually addressed its critics at every turning point this year and some think this is simply the start.
The launch of Bitcoin futures on December 10th, which for the very first time will permit financiers to go into the Bitcoin market through a significant regulated United States exchange, suggests that we are simply beginning.
What makes Bitcoin so important is that there is a limited quantity out there. There will just ever be an optimum of 21 million Bitcoins and unlike typical fiat currencies you can't simply print more of them whenever you seem like. This is since Bitcoin operates on an evidence of work procedure: in order to develop it, you need to mine it utilizing computer system processing power to resolve intricate algorithms on the Bitcoin blockchain. When this is accomplished, you are rewarded with Bitcoin as payment for the "work" you have actually done. Sadly the benefit you get for mining has actually reduced dramatically practically every year considering that Bitcoin's beginning, which indicates that for many people the only feasible method to get Bitcoin is purchasing it on an exchange. At the present rate levels is that a danger worth taking?
Lots of think Bitcoin is merely a bubble. I talked to cryptocurrency professional and long term financier Duke Randal who believes the possession is miscalculated, "I would compare this to numerous supply and need bubbles over history such as Dutch Tulip Mania and the dot com bubble of the late 90s. Costs are simply speculation based, and when you take a look at Bitcoin's performance as a real currency it is practically awkward." For those who do not understand, the dot com bubble was a duration in between 1997-2001 where lots of web business were established and offered insanely positive assessments based simply on speculation that later plunged 80-90% as the bubble started to collapse in the early 2000s. Some business such as eBay and Amazon, recuperated and now sit far above those evaluations however for others it was completion of the line.
Bitcoin was initially produced in order to take power far from our monetary systems and put individuals in control of their own cash, eliminating the middle guy and allowing peer to peer deals. Nevertheless, it is now among the slowest cryptocurrencies on the marketplace, its deal speed is 4 times slower than the 5th most significant cryptocurrency and its closest rival for payment options Litecoin. Untraceable personal privacy coin Monero makes deals even quicker, boasting a typical block time of simply 2 minutes, a fifth of the time Bitcoin can do it in, which lacks privacy. The world's 2nd most significant cryptocurrency, Ethereum, currently has a greater deal volume than Bitcoin in spite of being valued at just $676 dollars per Ether compared to Bitcoin's $16,726 per Bitcoin.
So why is Bitcoin's worth so high? I asked John McAfee the exact same concern. "Everything returns to the very same supply and need economics, fairly there is not quite Bitcoin offered and its current rise in cost has actually drawn in a great deal of limelights, this integrated with the launch of Bitcoin futures which numerous view as the very first indication Bitcoin is being accepted by the mass market, has actually led to a great deal of individuals following suit for monetary gain. Like any possession, when there is a greater need to purchase than to offer, the cost increases. This is bad since these brand-new financiers are getting in the marketplace without comprehending blockchain and the underlying concepts of these currencies indicating they are most likely to get charred".
Another factor is that Bitcoin is incredibly unstable, it has actually been understood to swing up or down countless dollars in less than a minute which if you are not utilized to nor anticipating it, triggers less knowledgeable financiers to worry sell, leading to a loss. This is yet another factor Bitcoin will have a hard time to be embraced as a kind of payment. The Bitcoin rate can move significantly in between the time suppliers accept Bitcoin from clients and offer it on to exchanges for their regional currency. This unpredictable motion can erase their whole success. Will this instability disappear whenever quickly? Not most likely: Bitcoin is a fairly brand-new property class and although awareness is increasing, just a really little portion of the world's population hold Bitcoin. Till it ends up being more extensively dispersed and its liquidity enhances substantially, the volatility will continue.
So if Bitcoin is quite ineffective as a real currency, what are its applications? Numerous think Bitcoin has actually carried on from being a feasible type of payment to ending up being a shop of worth. Bitcoin resembles "digital gold" and will merely be utilized as a standard for other cryptocurrencies and blockchain tasks to be determined versus and traded for. Just recently there have actually been stories of individuals in high inflation nations such as Zimbabwe purchasing Bitcoin in order to hang on to what wealth they have instead of see its worth decrease under the recklessness of its main banking system.
Is it far too late to get associated with Bitcoin? If you think in what these cryptocurrencies will provide for the world then it is never ever far too late to get included, however we recommend you look into crypto market scanners as they will provide you the best insight.. You may be much better off taking a look at Litecoin, up 6706% for the year or Ethereum which is up an amazing 7421% for the year. These more recent, quicker currencies wish to accomplish what Bitcoin initially set out to do back in its creation in 2009 and change federal government run fiat currencies.
Who understands what the rate of these currencies will be 10, fifteen or perhaps twenty years from now? Something is specific though, we much better strap ourselves in as it is going to be a wild flight.

Cosmos Hub ATOM Token and the commonly misunderstood staking token - Yield does not equal Profit

Cosmos Hub ATOM Token and the commonly misunderstood staking token - Yield does not equal Profit
This is part three where we look at the ATOM token and general misconceptions around staking tokens. Part one can be found here and part Two can be found here

The ATOM token

I often see a lot of confusion around what the ATOM token is used for, so let me clarify:
  • The ATOM token is NOT used for all staking / transactions across the entire Cosmos Ecosystem. It is specific to only the Cosmos Hub. The Cosmos hub is one of many hubs / zones within the Cosmos Ecosystem. There are other hubs live today such as IRIS (which has its own token IRIS) and Sentinel due to launch later this month (which has its own token SENT). Each Zone will also have its own token to incentivise validators to secure their zone.
  • Transactions fees paid for the Cosmos Hub Do Not have to be paid using ATOM, a wide selection of different tokens will be able to be used to pay transaction fees such as BTC, ETH etc. The incentive for staking is that you will receive a proportion of these fees in the various currencies depending on the number of ATOMs staked.
  • It is NOT a currency, nor your normal token that you invest in and just HODL on your ledger. It is a staking token used to secure the Cosmos Hub. ATOM is hyper inflationary (which rewards those that stake the token to provide security to the Cosmos Hub and punishes those that don’t stake via decrease in value per ATOM via inflation.
  • The Top 100 Validators which stake the most atoms are selected for validating / creating new transactions
ATOMs are like ASICs, just as ASICs are a piece of capital you need in order to mine POW chains like Bitcoin, ATOMs are a piece of capital that you need in order to stake on the cosmos hub and earn transaction fees going through that hub. If a lot of ASICs are already in use it is very difficult to attack the network and similarly if a lot of ATOMs are staked, then it is very difficult for someone to buy a large portion of the ATOMs to attack the network. You can read the document explaining the token by the team here as well as the video below (time stamped from 44:30) as well as here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hREydu6Llac&t=2670s

Staking Tokens

Staking tokens are very commonly misunderstood by people, they assume its a passive income where they can earn 10–20% for doing nothing but staking their tokens. Rewards are created by minting new tokens via Inflation, this depreciates the asset of each token by increasing total supply of the tokens. To counter the negative effect of inflation, you can stake your tokens to earn a reward which is greater than the inflation increases. If there was 20% inflation and 100% of the tokens were staked, then there would be no rewards. It’s would just be like projects increased their total supply when doing coin swaps such as VEN going to VET where they increased the total supply of the tokens and everyone received the same proportion. Those that do not stake are punished as they are not receiving the % increase in new supply and so their proportion is diluted.
There are many examples of some version of the following: “Earn a 15% yield per annum when you stake on x network!” This is at best misleading and at worst potentially fraudulent depending on the jurisdiction where these claims are being made. It causes token holders to evaluate and hold PoS tokens on a basis that isn’t applicable or relevant. Even worse, using these words incorrectly can lead regulators to draw unnecessary negative conclusions about how to tax and regulate these networks/tokens: “If you are calling it yield then it should be taxed as income…” Staking rewards — and the possibility of slashing — are a set of incentives that encourage token holders and validators to secure a PoS blockchain. In return, they maintain or grow their relative share of token holdings in the network. Staking creates the “skin in the game” necessary for good behavior such as running nodes in the network and discouraging bad behaviors like failing to remain online or double signing. Staking rewards do NOT exist to provide an income stream to token holders. Think instead, “by staking I can increase my network participation (ownership if you like) by 0.3% over the following year” or “if I do not stake, my relative participation/ownership in the network will be diluted by 1.5% over the next 12 months”. The economic rationale for staking a PoS token is not to receive “yield” (it doesn’t exist) but because you believe that by doing so you will be growing your relative interest in the network and also contributing to significant token appreciation.
The above is taken from a great article which can be found here which explains the commonly misunderstood Staking Token and related terms such as Yield and Inflation.

Basic Example of how this works

To see how it works let’s look at a basic example. For simplicity assume there are only 2 Validators, “Validator 1" and “Validator 2" and there is a current total supply of 1000 tokens. 300 tokens are being staked with each Validator, with the validator for each staking 150 tokens and the delegators also staking 150 tokens. 60% of the total supply is staked whilst 40% is not staked.

https://preview.redd.it/en0kuks1deb31.png?width=1100&format=png&auto=webp&s=b8a16460fa277be3f1a7d8000af672573b884f51

Again, to keep it simple rather than do the rewards per block i am just going to use the yearly figures. So, if total supply is 1000 and inflation is set at 20% then there will be 200 tokens to be minted over a year to be used for rewards and added to the total supply. So total supply now becomes 1200 and the 200 tokens are distributed according to the diagram below (and using the commission / staking values in the diagram above)

https://preview.redd.it/5iwj4bo3deb31.png?width=2640&format=png&auto=webp&s=9519f8d171e78b2a255644a07e3887b8ee15ab9c
So now that the 200 tokens have been minted the total supply has now increased to 1200 and we can compare how the proportions of supply have changed.
The users that didn’t stake — initially had 40% of the supply, they have been penalized for not staking and now only own 33.33% of the supply. (Note they haven’t had any tokens removed from them it’s because additional tokens have been minted and they haven’t received a proportion of them by not staking.) — a decrease of 6.66%
Delegator using validator charging 20% commission — Initially had 15% of the supply and now has 15.84% of the supply — an increase of 0.84%
Validator charging 20% commission — Initially had 15% of the supply now has 17.5% of the supply — an increase of 2.5%
Validator charging 10% commission — Initially had 15% of the supply now has 17.08% of the supply — an increase of 2.08%
Delegator using validator charging 10% commission — Initially had 15% of the supply and now has 16.26% of the supply — an increase of 1.25%

https://preview.redd.it/2s0yutj5deb31.png?width=1100&format=png&auto=webp&s=481e4073b3ea25d9f2919693b94c7863ed44f652
You can see how the users that don’t stake get penalized by not receiving rewards with the increase of additional supply. The proportion of supply that they lose gets transferred to those that stake.

21 Day unbonding period

To protect against a validator attacking the network and then immediately withdrawing his stake, the Cosmos Hub is enforcing a 21-day unbonding period. During this period, staked Atoms do not receive rewards anymore, but slashing is still possible. This means your Atoms are illiquid for 21-days after you decide to stop staking. You will not be able to trade them on an exchange etc until the 21 days have passed. There are however exchanges now looking at offering services where you keep your ATOM on their exchange, and they stake them for you. This has advantages of being able to day trade etc whilst still earning rewards to counter inflation. The downsides are that they normally charge high commission (30%), plus security wise its not great to have everyone leaving their tokens on an exchange as has been proven time and time again. The other potential issue is that it gives the exchanges a lot of voting power over the network if everyone uses them which creates centralisation and may be more inclined to vote on for governance that benefits them. EOS has this issue.
Whale Exchange, Newdex, Hufu, Bigone, and several other exchanges and wallets, have been elected as the top 10 BPs. In the meanwhile, the original supernodes, EOS Newyork, EOS42, EOS Authority, and EOS Canada, all have dropped out the top 21 rankings. Huobi Pool continues to see its dominance. At present, two of the top 5 ranked super nodes belong to one entity: EOSLaomao and Bigone exchanges both belong to the individual Laomao and team. The interests of the two are closely tied, and the strong essentially becomes stronger. And now we are seeing a phenomenon where an overarching number of top BPs are coming from mainland China, and in other words, we are seeing EOS even more centralized than before. Most of the top supernodes currently as of publishing date are either based in China or ran by a Chinese team Brian, the head of the EOS Amsterdam community, also believes that the exchange is considered to be the “leader in the ecosystem”. He is more worried, however, that the supernodes are almost occupied by mainland China nodes, leading to network security vulnerability, centralization and long-term negative PR. This would subsequently bring down the price of the token.

Slashing

Staking is not without its risks and it’s important to choose a secure and trusted validator or risk having your tokens that are staked slashed. On the 29th June the first validator had all tokens that were staked with them slashed by 5% due to a misconfiguration which caused them to double sign a block. Whilst in this case, the slashing was neither the consequence of an attack on the network nor the result of a compromised validator key, it demonstrates that slashing is real and that validators should carefully design their infrastructure to mitigate the risk of losing their own and their delegators’ funds.

https://preview.redd.it/m0iqeqpddeb31.png?width=542&format=png&auto=webp&s=aaa36fc6a95a4f9f366e8cc7e980343117cb8cca

How to choose which Validator to delegate to?

The first metric I look at when evaluating validators is how much self-bond they have. If they have 30% or higher self-bond, this gives me confidence that they don’t want to get slashed as much as I (delegator) don’t want to get slashed. When a validator has low self-bond (1% or less), it makes me less likely to bond to them because they are playing with other peoples’ money, and there’s less incentive for them to bolster their setups. Many of the top validators are highly visible by making their contributions to the ecosystem known. A lot of them have built useful tools that add to the richness of the Cosmos ecosystem, and thus you recognize their brand through their contribution. For example, you would know about a validator because you’ve used their block explorer. All this of course isn’t telling of the hardness of their setups. This part is hard to verify yourself without going into their data centers and auditing their servers yourself. For now, doing your research on what they’ve got set up as described by their website/content is the best option to understanding what kind of setup they’ve built.
https://medium.com/@huobiwallet/cosmos-ama-on-huobi-wallet-d6b75f6ed492
Tendermint uses Proof of Stake where all validators are known before hand. The current maximum amount of Validators is 100. Validators run a full node for the Cosmos hub and provide its security, as well as being able to vote on Governance about future decisions for the Hub. The 100 Validators which stake the most ATOMs are selected. Currently the minimum amount of ATOM staked to be in the top 100 is 39,047 ATOMs.
The amount of ATOMs staked by a Validator is a combination of ATOM’s that the validator personally holds as well as Delegators, those that rather than run a validator, delegate their stake to another validator and receive a % of their rewards depending on the amount they delegate. There is normally a commision fee that the validator takes as a fee as a % of the rewards received for delegating to them which can normally ranges from 0% to 30% (can see in the picture below). This pays for the equipment, wages etc needed to run a secure validator.
https://preview.redd.it/w7fudoigdeb31.png?width=770&format=png&auto=webp&s=49835b8cb0972090187765a69366a143baadf342
Tendermint requires 2/3 of votes for consensus to be reached. Currently 2/3 of the vote are controlled by the Top 16 Validators (so effectively if these all agree to vote on a proposal then that would be sufficient without the input of the other 84).
If a validator / group of validators control more than 1/3 of the vote then whilst they can’t force any changes through, they can prevent any further proposals from being accepted that they don’t agree with regardless of what other validators vote. So the idea is to have the voting power distributed widely throughout the top 100 for more decentralisation.

Calculating the values for Cosmos

Current Total Supply:

There is no fixed total supply of ATOMs and the total supply will increase each year by between 7% and 20% due to inflation.
https://stargate.cosmos.network/staking/pool
{ "not_bonded_tokens": "71341288426570", "bonded_tokens": "170079253911157" }
Bonded Tokens + Not Bonded Tokens = Total Supply.
The values in the API include 6 decimal places so you need to divide the number by 1,000,000. So to work out the total supply it would be:
(71341288426570 + 170079253911157) / 1,000,000 = 241,420,542.337727‬ ATOM
You then have a minimum of 7% and a maximum of 20% inflation per year on top of that depending on how much has been staked.

Circulating Supply:

The only tokens that are under a vesting period are for All in Bits Inc (AiB, the company doing business as “Tendermint”). They have a total of 23,619,895.81 ATOMs vested which are split into two sets, each subject to a different form of vesting.
The first set consists of 1,777,707 ATOMs allocated to 44 addresses owned by AiB founders, contractors, and employees, current and past. These atoms are non-transferable for 12 months, but can be used for staking and governance. These will become unlocked on the 13th March 2020.
The remaining set of AiBs atoms are held in an AiB multisig and vest continuously starting 2 months after genesis. This is a total of 21,842,188.81 ATOMs.
Each month 992,826.76 of these are released on the 13th (Starting May 13th 2019 and finishing on March 13th 2021.
So Circulating Supply = Total Supply — (Amount Vested by AIB)
Circulating Supply = 241,039,982.546951 — (1,777,707– (21,842,188.81 — (3 x 992,826.76)) (represents 3 months which have been released so far)
Circulating Supply = 220,398,567.016951 ATOMs
Current Market Cap: $872,778,325.39

How to work out Profit from Staking

The Annual reward yield is currently 10.19 % which can be seen from sites such as here
This is the bit where people get confused with staking. They see 10.19 % reward and think easy money, passive income etc. What you need to understand is that these rewards are from new ATOMs being minted and added to the supply via inflation. And so with a higher supply the value of each ATOM is worth less.

Calculate effective reward rate in ATOMs

((100% — Commission Rate%) * Yield Rate) — Inflation
So if you delegate with a validator which charges 20% commission
It would be (0.8 * 10.19) — 7.66 = 0.492% a year in ATOMs

Calculate effective profit in FIAT terms

ATOMs hasn’t been trading for a full year but if we take the first value in CMC which is $6.44 and is currently $3.95 which is a decrease of 38.66% per ATOM. The yearly reward yield is 10.19% so in profit terms its 10.19–38.66 = -28.47%
Profit in USD Terms = 10.19–38.66 = a loss of 28.47% in USD

Calculate effective profit in BTC terms

At the start of trading each ATOM was worth 0.00164490 satoshis, as of the time of this writing they are now 0.00037155 satoshis which is a decrease of 77.41%
Profit in BTC terms = Reward Rate + Change in Price per ATOM in BTC over year
Profit in BTC Terms = 10.19–77.41 = a loss of 67.22 % in BTC
Note that these calculations do not include transaction costs for traffic going through the Hub. Once IBC is released (minimum viable product version is supposed to be at the end of this year, so i would estimate mid next year for full feature version to be released), adoption of the ecosystem will increase and zones will be transferring between each other over hubs then additional revenue is earned via transaction fees of other tokens.
This site you can see the correct value for Total Supply, % Bonded and Inflation Rate https://www.mintscan.io/
Be warned there are some other sites such as https://stakingrewards.com/asset/atom which show incorrect values (for example they say the staking ratio is currently 88.06% which is incorrect and skews the figures for rewards. Mintscan is accurate and the API site that i listed before is direct from the Cosmos Official website so is correct.

Bitcoin Analysis: Breakout of $9k, Exploring the Main Drivers

As published via CoinLive
Bitcoin is breaking through a major level of resistance at $9k as the rally continues. This article looks to provide insights behind some of the key metrics and other fundamental aspects backing Bitcoin.
![](https://www.coinlive.io/ckeditor_assets/pictures/779/content_1.png)
Remember, when we see a pump in price, it doesn't necessarily mean that one can pinpoint the reason fueling the higher valuation. A whole plethora of factors outside the public knowledge may influence such decision to buy the token, however, by analyzing the latest key fundamental advancements, we can assess how well justified the rise is.
#1 Google Trends: 'Bitcoin' Picking Up
![](https://www.coinlive.io/ckeditor_assets/pictures/780/content_4.png)
#2 Social Media Hype Solid
The social media activity via Twitter and Reddit on Bitcoin has been consistent since early April. We've drawn a line around 22.5k, which when broken, should provide further evidence that the hype is truly back.
We like to use the website Solume.io illustrates the change in sentiment, as it helps us track the social activity on Reddit and Twitter.

"The April 15 income-tax filing deadline is contributing to crypto’s falling prices as investors who won big betting on the digital tokens sell some of their remaining holdings to pay $25 billion in capital-gains levies, Tom Lee, the head of research at Fundstrat Global Advisors, wrote in a note Thursday. Bitcoin dropped more than 40 percent over the past month, including a 2.4 percent decline on Thursday to $6,664 as of 9:39 a.m. in New York.
“This is a massive outflow from crypto to dollars,” Lee wrote. “Historical estimates are each $1 of USD outflow is $20-$25 impact on crypto market value.” Lee says that $25 billion prediction -- derived from his estimate that U.S. households had $92 billion in taxable gains from cryptocurrencies in 2017 -- would represent 20 percent of capital-gains tax receipts to the U.S. Treasury. He estimates total capital gains receipts will hit a record $168 billion for tax-year 2017."
#8 Technical Breakout Sees Further Shorts Liquidation
The area of resistance at $9k represents a major hurdle, so when it broke, some shorts saw their stops triggered which creates an initial flash-type move on the combination of shorts buying back to close their positions and new longs coming in.

Rich! Even the Poor!

Hello, Reddit. First post. I have Cryptocurrency on my mind nowadays and I’m just going to spitball thoughts around here. No real method or expectations for these post, we get what we get. Got it? Highly speculative perspective.
The price of bitcoin is 6,777 as I type this. I can’t believe I didn’t get in just a few years ago, but I am so excited to be now. I believe the final 21 million will be worth well over 10 trillion of the dollars people care about at this hour. If that comes true the price of a coin will be approximately 495,000 per. Making a single Satoshi worth close to what’s known as a nickel. Let’s say we should all be willing to trade for food, at a fair price for varieties of grown fruits and vegetables across the globe, 12 Satoshis(being optimistic with this low price but fruits and veggies used to cost far less than 50 cents).
What’s going to happen?! Let’s chat!

Crypto: Eating the World One Asset at a Time

2017 is the year of blockchain and cryptocurrency. The movement might have begun in 2009, with the launch of Bitcoin, but it takes time for anything to gain momentum, and in this case, it seems that eight is the golden number. In a year that has seen Bitcoin reach a massive high – US$10,000 as of 28/11/17 – Ethereum and Litecoin making gains in the thousands of percents, and ICOs appearing at an incredible rate of knots, crypto investing has finally reached its maturity, and it is eating the World, one asset at a time. Some people say that this is a worrying thing; others that you can’t – and shouldn’t try to – halt progress and that this is the future in the making. Whichever turns out to be the case, crypto and blockchain are here and you can no longer ignore them.
Blockchain and Bitcoin – The Chicken and the Egg
In 2009 Satoshi Nakamoto grew tired of the awkward process and sometimes lengthy delays involved in transacting digital payments. He wanted a system that could be instant, regardless of where you were in the world and the currency that your country used. No exchange rates to work out, no international transfer fees; his would be a universal currency for the tech community. And thus, Bitcoin was born.
You can’t just create a packet of data and say, ‘here you go, have this instead of cash’, however. What’s to stop other people from doing the same and endlessly copying and recreating your data packets until they’re so numerous that they have no value at all? No, the new digital currency needed an encryption system which ensured that no two data packets – or Bitcoins – could be the same, or be copied. And that’s where blockchain came in.
A digitised, decentralised, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions, blockchain is a continuously growing list of records – blocks – securely interconnected using cryptography; the closest you’ll get to an unbreakable code. Although it is now used in other areas of business, it was originally developed and is still used primarily for verifying crypto transactions. Without blockchain there would be no Bitcoin, but without Bitcoin there would be no blockchain, and without either there would be no other cryptocurrencies.
From Evolution to Revolution
With the exception of a few long-sighted investors, who took a punt on the fact that Nakamoto was actually a bit of a genius, it took some time for Bitcoin to become established, and it wasn’t until 2011 that the currency’s open source was used to create a crypto competitor. Since that time, we’ve not just seen the creation of literally countless new cryptocurrencies – the current estimate is in excess of 1,300, but no one really knows the exact figure for certain – but countless variations on the cryptocurrency theme.
Many currencies have taken the Bitcoin model and tweaked it; Litecoin, for example, is kind of like Bitcoin’s younger, faster, less-popular sibling. However, others have branched out, finding new USPs and creating their own ecosystems. Monero and Zcash have created enhanced privacy protocols, which allow for the anonymous buying, selling and using of the currencies. Ripple’s focus is transaction utility and the improvement of international purchasing. Ethereum’s progression has been towards the technical aspects of blockchain development, such as decentralised applications and smart contracts. Each new development is aimed at a slightly different market and offers a slightly different proposition for buyers, users, businesses, and investors, and it is this that has opened people's eyes to the potential of crypto assets. This is the reason for the sudden surge in the adoption of cryptocurrencies by businesses and the increase in ICOs. And it's all of these developments working in concert that has led to the recent and rapid increases in value that have occurred across the crypto frontier – what is becoming known as the Crypto Revolution.
Progress in the Making
A revolution as defined by WordWeb is ‘a drastic and far-reaching change in the ways of thinking and behaving’. While cryptocurrencies are certainly something new in the history of finance, what will cause the revolution is the ways in which we use them. Bitcoins are now accepted by many online retail outlets, and have even found their way onto the high street. Litecoin is some way behind, but making similar forays into the real world. And companies – including Fast Invest – are developing crypto payment cards to facilitate the use of crypto everywhere, to be used just as a fiat credit or debit card currently is; one swipe and you’re done.
Once crypto payment becomes a fully integrated means of conducting transactions, it’s believed that the truly cashless society won’t be too far behind, as GB Pounds, US Dollars and the full gamut of Euros convert their physical coins and notes into digital. In October 2017, The Telegraph posited that this state may not be very far off.
Crypto Assets Right Now
As cryptocurrencies continue to boom, they have birthed in their turn a new form of crypto asset: the crypto token. Used as a form of virtual share, crypto tokens are sold by businesses as a means to raise funds in a process called an ICO (initial coin offering).
Although associated with tech startups trying to get off the ground and struggling to find capital elsewhere – it’s become notoriously difficult to gain a small business loan in the decade since the global financial crisis – a growing number of established businesses are turning to the ICO as a means to further develop their products and plans. While investing in the first option can bring tremendous gains if the company takes off – the value of Ethereum has increased by 60,000% since it began life as an ICO in 2013; just imagine if you’d put in £1,000 back then – it does come with that big, risky, IF. Even the best ideas are vulnerable to failure due to either extraneous conditions or poor management, so an ICO for an established company presents a more comfortable investment proposition for the risk-averse.
ICOs normally last for a short period of time, offering interested parties the opportunity to buy tokens for a specified cryptocurrency. At the end of the ICO, those investors can then sell on their tokens to other interested parties, although they generally wait a year or more – unless the market rockets – to make a solid return.
As an example, the FastInvest ICO launches on December 4th, 2017. The company has been comfortably trading since 2015, serving more than 8,500 P2P lending investment customers on a regular basis, and the ICO has been devised to add to the company’s products – with a P2P lending app and cryptocurrency payment card – and extending its reach with the opening of the first FastInvest American office. The ICO will last just short of two months, finishing on January 31st, 2018, and the company expects FIT (Fast Invest Tokens) to reach the open market by September 2018. A strictly limited number of FIT will be generated during the ICO period – 777 000 000 – with half being reserved for Fast Invest’s 50 employees, and the other half being open to crowd sale. The tokens will be valued at a rate of 1,000 FIT for 1ETH (Ethereum), and for simplicity, only Ethereum will be accepted within the ICO period – what investors later sell their tokens for is up to them.
The information that potential investors use to decide upon which ICO to put their crypto assets into is all available in each company’s white paper. It should detail the business as it is, its plans and projections, the current market space, the team behind the project, and a comprehensive breakdown of what the invested funds will be used for. This allows investors to thoroughly research the proposition, making sure that both project and team are genuine – easier to ascertain with an established company – and take a closer look at the financials.
Change, the Future, and the ICO
ICOs have grown in popularity in direct correlation with the slowing of traditional financial markets. As it has become progressively more difficult for SMBs, SMEs, and startups to access the funding they need through established routes, it has become imperative that they find capital elsewhere. Seeing how successful crowdfunding has been in other theatres of finance – including P2P lending – it was only a matter of time before business turned to the clear advantages of the new financial movement. And now that it has begun, it is unlikely to stop. Indeed, many experts are now warning venture capitalists that it’s time to ‘wake up’ to ICOs, with Forbes suggesting that the ICO will soon replace the IPO (initial public offering).
The doubters still mutter that the crypto movement is a bubble, and that all bubbles eventually burst. But what happens if a bubble is coated in graphene? It becomes flexible; it shifts with the weight and momentum of the moment; it might show signs of stress and pressure, but then it rebounds and reforms its original shape. Crypto assets aren’t quite ubiquitous, but as more and more people are finding more and more uses for them, they are slowly becoming that way, and with each new function comes a new layer of graphene to the ever-growing bubble. And that makes crypto mighty.

I THINK THESE 120 WALLETS, EACH CONTAIN 10,000 BTC OF STOLEN FUNDS. THEY CHANGED THEIR MIND WHEN THEY WERE FOUND ON 16 FEB

(I submitted this post yesterday, but I think it got lost amongst the thousands of MT GOX posts in a thread. I think people deserve a chance to see it and decide on what I've presented for themselves. I'm the Blockchain Avenger. I don't like Reddit much, but when I post my findings here I am SheepRoadReloaded2. I'm a forensic bitcoin accountant. When I work for the public good, I use wallet 1AhYNAoMxDPD7bnNvxuSY9FB1CDviEuqzZ)
I don't think they've just "found" them. I think I "found" them, so they decided not to steal them. Or it jogged their memory. There are at least 120 wallets, each containing 10,000.000777 BTC.
Here is a typical one:-
https://blockchain.info/address/1LfV1tSt3KNyHpFJnAzrqsLFdeD2EvU1MK
The 10,000BTC was moved into each wallet in February, then the thief marked them all the same day with a 0,000777BTC payment from a phone wallet:-
https://blockchain.info/address/12Nxd2X12WZeYSjUcbtm5NpS3d81Yh8sKh
I sat on the discovery for a few weeks, then discussed it with a bitcoin forum moderator and posted it a few places. It was ignored.
Then I emailed Kolin Burgess. He's the guy who did the protest outside Gox, then organised a group action.
Click on any of those red arrow "777" payments. Who could possibly stash half a billion $US of bitcoins in early february? Satoshi, the Winkelvii, or the Mt GOX owner. T
wo of them looked smug, one looked confused in his driveway, and one was sweating like a shifty-eyed pig.
I think the phone wallet (now empty) was used to record the public keys (wallet addresses). The private keys would have been printed off and stashed in the same order between the pages of a book or something. A private key on its own is useless, and not evidence unless somebody tries to unlock every wallet in the world with it, and gets lucky.
Those malleable transactions, eh?
Bollocks! Bitcoins started being stolen in 2011 if you look at the oldest wallets.
I was working on another job, and just checking out big chunks of bitcoin moving about. I always mark suspected stolen bitcoin wallets with a "666", or a combo of 3s, 6s or 9s depending on my level of certainty. I kept noticing these 777s in piles of bitcoins and I wondered if I'd done them when I was drunk or something.Seeing my own marking method being used for crime instead of philanthropy pissed me off.
So I "666"ed that wallet. I 666'd it up good, using my 1Ah "blockchain avenger" wallet because he was obviously familiar with its work
https://blockchain.info/tx/5988729edfc4871c7b5668394b9175f1b15219d3776255287e19e8222df5465a
The first time on 16 Feb, I didn't put 2 and 2 together to make Gox. I did some more poking about when I finished my paid job on the blockchain, posted a few places, but not here. I don't like Reddit.
Maybe the wallet owner noticed 666's in it and knew the gig was up. "Oh! Here they all are!".
Lets see if those wallets start having transactions now. We've got that phone owner bang to rights. It can only be a GOX employee
Apologies for the long post. Just to remind you of the sums and dates, here is a typical 10,000BTC cashpile again that somebody stashed and marked
https://blockchain.info/address/1LfV1tSt3KNyHpFJnAzrqsLFdeD2EvU1MK
Over a hundred of those "777" marked ones alone. He market other wallets with other numbers, but haven't worked out his code.
Please satisfy yourself that there is half a billion dollars of bitcoins in 120 wallets, moved in, then marked by the same android phone wallet in early february, and base your comments on if its factually correct, or technically flawed. Sometimes you can point at half a billion dollars, and Reddit users talk about your finger.
I'm quite busy at the moment, and don't intend to come back to answer questions or teach people how to use blockchain.info or reverse taint analysis etc
I asked Kolin Burgess to buy me a nice sponge cake if his group get their bitcoins back. If you are a magic the gathering victim and get some or all of your bitcoin back, please make a donation to a charity of your choice
Then put your bitcoin into an address on the blockchain administered by a wallet on your own PC or phone, use localbitcoins.com in future, and think about what happened here today. The entirety of bitcoin is just YOU and THE BLOCKCHAIN.
Be very suspicious of anybody who tries come between the two of you offering a service.
Bitcoins don't exist. They don't "flow" through the internet like emails, can't live in cold storage or a vault. They don't even live in a wallet. If I "send" you one BTC, my blockchain address has -1 added to it. Yours has +1 added. No bitcoins move. Nothing does.
They are just an idea. All bitcoin thefts are accountancy tricks in a database called the blockchain. the stolen bitcoins haven't even moved an inch.

    3. BCH could really be missing the new big use case. Gamers would love to have real ownership of game items. The first game which will integrate a digital coin and make it popular will be groundbreaking. (141 points, 76 comments)
    4. The guy had 350 bucks received via Lightning Network but he can't even close the channels to actually withdraw the bitcoins. (139 points, 188 comments)
    5. What gives Core the right to change the model so drastically and still keep the brand name? (119 points, 117 comments)
    6. One of the most ignorant - even anti-crypto - argument I hear around is that BCH is a currency controlled by Chinese miners. (88 points, 74 comments)
    7. The first megabytes are far more crucial than the 100th. Not every MB was born equal and by giving up on adoption for years Core may have given up on adoption forever. (69 points, 20 comments)
    8. In light of the recent ERC-20 bug I think this is a good time to remember these wise words (54 points, 25 comments)
    9. If BCH had decent privacy features it'd gain so much more market share. It's hard to compete with privacy-always-on coins such as XMR but many more coins offer moderate privacy and would be easy to beat. (42 points, 31 comments)
    10. If Memo taught me one thing it's the more uses around the coin the better - can BCH be adopted to help fight counterfeiting? (33 points, 4 comments)
  15. 1055 points, 5 submissions: ForkiusMaximus
    1. MortuusBestia hits on a pitch-perfect way of looking at BCH's value proposition in epic comment on /BitcoinMarkets (604 points, 109 comments)
    2. I am excited that BCH is being irrationally criticized, because it reminds me of 2011 and 2012 when Bitcoin was being irrationally criticized. Any of 2013, when the price rose 100x. (183 points, 82 comments)
    3. Japanese tweeter makes a good point about BTC: "You don't call it an asset if it crumbles away every time you go to use it. You call it a consumable." (144 points, 21 comments)

    1. Let's start a class action lawsuit against Canada for calling their currency the dollar. I accidentally bought CAD when I wanted USD, and didn't know I could just exchange it again. (511 points, 243 comments)
    2. BTC noobs conned into being concerned about node count to distract them from the real centralization problem: (137 points, 172 comments)
    3. Any real scientist interested in Bitcoin should be happy Bitcoin Cash exists. (110 points, 40 comments)
    4. Blockstream shill admits to exaggerating and slandering Roger purely because he doesn't support BTC. (103 points, 49 comments)
    5. Cognitive Dissonance: It's totally fine to call BCH 'bcash', but it's fraudulent to call it Bitcoin? (93 points, 51 comments)
    6. Be Cash! (78 points, 45 comments)
  17. 1029 points, 7 submissions: zhell_
    1. MEMO NOW SUPPORTS REPLIES, join the Party now ! (208 points, 50 comments)
    2. memo.cash has been generating 2000 tx/day since its start, which is near 10% of all transactions on the BCH network. (201 points, 73 comments)
    3. "Money comes from being the most tradable of all commodities" Austrian Economics (189 points, 104 comments)
    4. Fiat is crashing: Inflation in the US averages at 10%/year in the past 5 years when measured as the price of the top 500 items on which Americans spend their after-tax dollars. (183 points, 49 comments)
    5. Memo.cash breaks a record with 3000 on-chain actions in the last 24h after implementing replies (143 points, 25 comments)
    6. with 2k tx/day, memo.cash is only using ~0.09% of 8MB blocks capacity currently on the BCH network (that would be 0.02% of 32MB blocks) (69 points, 3 comments)
    7. Help! I bought what I thought was Bitcoin and it is now gone! /s (36 points, 8 comments)
  18. 1020 points, 4 submissions: Anenome5
    1. Let's End the War and focus on the TRUE ENEMY (719 points, 349 comments)
    2. Satoshi's original whitepaper talks about "Reclaiming Disk Space" by pruning transactions, what's being done on this front? Core-trolls say we don't need to store forever that you bought a coffee, and that's true, and Satoshi also proposed how to fix that long ago. (200 points, 166 comments)
    3. Core'er says $50 fees "a wtf moment for everyone" but doubts it will ever happen again. Seems they're in for a surprise, BTC is still extremely vulnerable to transaction-fee price-inflation due to low capacity. BTC transaction fees currently 19+ times higher than BCH.
