An attepmt at explaining DeFi (this week...)

Warning, long post from my mornings contemplation. See https://twitter.com/markjeffrey/status/1300175793352445952 (Mark Jeffery 30 mins) for a video explaining DeFi.
This is my attempt at explaining DeFi.
I’m still learning this stuff, so any corrections are welcomed.
Links are provided for information, none are recommendations, nor referral links. Do your own research (DYOR) before investing :)
I’ll try not to shill YFI too much...
Not all platforms use the same mechanics as I describe, but I think I’ve covered the most common ones.

Stable coins
Crypro currency that is intended to maintain a level value. Normally with respect to USD $. Some rely on a trusted third party who has actual USD sitting in a bank account (USDT aka Tether, USDC…), others are trustless (DAI)

Maker
Lock collateral into the smart contract. Then DIA can be generated, and used for other things. DAI is designed to match the USD, and is completely trustless. You must have more value staked than the DAI removed (at least 150% over collateral) or you will get liquidated.

BTC on ETH
Bitcoin can not be directly used on the etherium chain. So, there are a number ways to make the value availble. Most involve trusting a 3rd party and the most common is wrapped BTC wBTC.
Notes WETH (Wrapped ETH) is used by some contracts to use ETH (direct use of ETH is not possible in some contracts) Unlinke WBTC, WETH is trustless as evrythign is done on the etherium blockchain (I think).

Lending
You deposit a valuable token onto a pool on platform, someone else borrows it. They pay interest to the pool. You get a proportion of the pools interest over time. When there is high demand for a particular token, the interest rate increases dynamically.
e.g. look at the interest rate model and click on the figure for
https://compound.finance/markets/USDC
Borrow rates increase lineally as more of the available pool is loaned. 2% at zero and 12.5% when the pool is emptied.
Earnings are lower than the borrowing rates because: There is more in the pool than borrowed. The platform takes a cut.
e.g. 50% of the pool is borrowed, the borrower pays 7.25%, but the lenders only get 3.38%. 3.38/0.5 = 6.76%, so about 0.5% of the interest is being taken by compound.
Different pools have different interest rate functions, DAI has an inflection point to maintain a buffer https://compound.finance/markets/DAI
The interest rate increases slowly to 4% until 75% of the available pool is loaned out. Then it’s much more expensive to borrow e.g. 16% APR at 90% utilisation.
When lending a single token into a single pool, you should always get the (slightly ?) more of same token back.

How lending works
You deposit ETH, you are given a token back as proof of participation in the pool (cETH for comound.finance).
The exchange rate for cETH to ETH is NOT fixed. Rather is changes over time. As the ETH interest is paid into the pool the cETH becomes more valuable compared to the initial deposit.
e.g. you deposit 10 ETH, and get 499.52 cETH. In a months time, you repay the 499.2 cETH cETH and get 10.1 ETH back. You have just gained 1%.

Taxes
In many jurisdictions, converting ETH to cETH would be classed as a taxable event (DYOR ! )

Lego Bricks
The cETH represents your ETH, so it has value. This means it can be used for other things...
Lego bricks is taken to mean that all these things fit together and you can sue them in different ways.

How borrowing works
You need to be over colarteralised to borrow from most platforms. So, if you deposit 10.0 ETH into a smart contract, you (currently) have $4,000 of collateral to work with. The platform may then let you borrow a % of your collateral in other tokens.
So, you can borrow $2,000 of USDC, to buy more 5 ETH. Then when ETH price goes up you sell $2100 back to USDC and repay the interest. Now you have 10.x ETH.
This is a form of Leverage, when the price goes up, you win. However, if the ETH price goes down, you risk being Liquidated. This means part of your collateral will be sold at the (lower) market price to repay your loan. There will likely be a penalty for you. (e.g. @ ETH = $300, 7.33 of your ETH is sold for $2,400, your USDC loan is repaid, and you keep the remaining 2.67 ETH and the 5 ETH you purchased.

Shorting
Deposit $8,000 collateral, Borrow 10 ETH and sell for $400 each. If the price drops to $380, buy 10.1 ETH and repay the loan and interest. You have just made $162 profit. However, if the price goes up you will still need to buy 10.1 ETH.

Flash Loans
A technomage creates a single transaction that borrows lots of money. Then within the same single ~13 second block uses it to do lots of complex things to hopefully make a profit. As it’s all within a single block, collateral is not required.
See https://mobile.twitter.com/nanexcool/status/1297068546023993349 for a transaction that made ~46,000 USDC profit (without collateral)
If this post is introducing you to the possibilities of flash loans, you are very unlikely to ever do one in the near future.
I think Aave is the most common source for flash loans.

Simple farming lending:
Simply put you token in which ever platform offers the largest interest rate. Moving to the best option costs gas (and attention).

Complex lending farming
Some platforms offer tokens in return for using a platform, so simple APR comparisons aren’t sufficient. If the additional platform token has high value it can distort the market.
E.g. when COMP was initially offered, it was profitable to:

  1. Place collateral on compound.finance
  2. Borrow BAT at 30%
  3. Lend the BAT back to the same platform at 15%
  4. Collect the COMP accrued due to interest paid and interest earned.
  5. Sell the COMP on the open market.
This technique was made less favourable by compound changing the distribution model so smaller pools (like BAT) couldn’t be exploited in this way.

DEX
Decentralised exchanges range from ones that operate with depositing assets, trading with an order book and then withdrawing, to simple interfaces that allow you to swap tokens. of the latter, the most popular is uniswap.

Liquidity provision
The swap based DEX’s rely on liquidity providers (LP). Here you deposit equal values of two tokens e.g. USDC and ETH.
Then any time someone wants to swap USDC for ETH on the exchange, they add USDC and remove ETH from the pool.
Each time someone does a swap, they pay a fee to the liquidity pool and you get a share.

Impairment loss
However, if the price of one asset goes up, the pool with stabilise to have less of it. So you see an overall increase, but not as much as if you had just hold’ed.
See https://twitter.com/ChainLinkGod/status/1270046868932661248 for an example.
Hopefully, the fees accrued are greater than the losses.
https://twitter.com/Tetranode/status/1300326676451057664/photo/1

Stable coin pairs
If you restrict yourself to similar things (e.g. USD stable coins, or different versions of BTC on Ethereum), then the impairment loss is much reduced. Curve.finance focuses on such like for like pools and allows multiple tokens in a single pool.

Complex farming liquidity pools
Taking advantage of governance token rewards for using certain exchanges / pools. This can be done to boot strap liquidity and / or allow a decentralisation of the governance of the DEX.
The tokes received have value because of expected future income, or governance rights (which may be exploited for future income)

Yearn
Yearn is a group of smart farmer protocols that allow pooling to reduce gas costs and benefit from smart developers / contracts.
The simplest EARN take tokens / stable coins and place them in the highest yielding platform for that token. https://yearn.finance/earn
The yCRV vault provides USD stable coin liquidity within curve for trading fees, but also lending fees via Yearn pools for each stable coin (oh and it gets CRV governance tokens…).
Other vaults use more complex strategies. The collateral is used to generate stable coins that then generate income from interest rates, Liquidity provision fees, and accrual of governance tokens. Some governance tokens are sold, others are used to optimise the rewards from other platforms.
For example, see this video on the Link Vault (Mark Jeffrey 13 mins).
https://twitter.com/markjeffrey/status/1300175793352445952
I expect the ETH vault may be similar, but may include Maker to generate the stable coins (rather than borrowing on Aave).
This video is a good intro on curve / yearn products (DeFIDad 31 mins) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yP-4pJpKbRU
All of these steps can be done by yourself, however, gas costs would be significant unless you have a large amount invested. Yearn, and vaults pay fees to the YFI protocol.

YFI
YFI is the token for yearn. There are only 30,000 issued. So, you can not earn them, you can:
1) Stake them for governance rewards
2) place in a yYFI vauly to gain more FYI
3) Use them as long term Ventrue capital funds within a DAO (coming soon (tm) ).

YFII, YVFV etc.
Forks of the YFI with different tokens / fees.

YAM, Sushi, YFII, etc.
To be completed…

Synthetix
To be completed...

Finally:
This is not financial advice.
There are multiple risks which get larger as more moving parts are added.
Errors and omissions expected.
Do you own research.

Faut-il investir dans le Bitcoin et dans les cryptomonnaies ?

Commençons directement par la réponse : non. Tu ne devrais pas investir dans le bitcoin.
Et au cours des prochaines minutes, tu vas comprendre pourquoi le Bitcoin, et les cryptomonnaies en général, ne sont pas juste de mauvais placements, mais surtout les pires placements qui existent pour ton argent.
Pour faire un millionnaire du Bitcoin, ce sont des dizaines, des centaines voire des milliers de personnes qui doivent perdre beaucoup voire tout leur argent. Ce fonctionnement économique s'appelle le jeu à somme nulle. Où la somme des gains et des pertes de tous les joueurs est égale à 0. C'est à dire que le gain de l'un constitue obligatoirement une perte pour l'autre.
Voici maintenant les 3 raisons pour lesquelles je n’investis pas dans le Bitcoin.
Premièrement, si tu ne sais pas ce qu'est le bitcoin ou comment ça fonctionne exactement, et bien c'est la première raison pour laquelle il ne faut pas que tu achètes du bitcoin. Connaitre et comprendre dans quoi tu investis est une des règles fondamentales de l'investissement.
Pour ceux qui croient vraiment que la blockchain est l'avenir, investir intelligemment serait d'investir dans les entreprises qui utilisent ou vont utiliser cette technologie pour révolutionner leur domaine.
Deuxièmement, si en tant qu'investisseur, ton objectif c'est de générer des revenus passifs, le Bitcoin ne te servira pas plus qu'acheter des cailloux. Un vrai investissement est quelque chose qui produit de la valeur et/ou génère des revenus et qui, en théorie, tu pourrais ne jamais avoir besoin de revendre. Une action par exemple génère des dividendes, un prêt ou une obligation génère des intérêts, un appartement génère un loyer et un like sur cette vidéo génère des vues ;).
Bref, un investissement doit avoir une vraie valeur et pas seulement un beau nom. Les cryptomonnaies quant à elles ne génèrent rien du tout et ne font rien d'utile.
Quand tu achètes du bitcoin, tu fais de la spéculation. Et si ta stratégie est de construire ta richesse sur long terme, comme moi, alors la volatilité du bitcoin n'est pas faite pour toi. Le seul objectif qu'ont les spéculateurs, c'est d'espérer trouver une autre personne prête à acheter pour plus cher. Qui à son tour va attendre jusqu'à trouver une autre personne prête à acheter pour encore plus cher. Et ainsi de suite. Jusqu'à la dernière personne qui n'arrive pas à trouver plus folle qu'elle. Et là, tout s'écroule.
La troisième raison pour laquelle il ne faut surtout pas investir dans le bitcoin et les crypto-monnaies est parce qu'elles n'ont aucune valeur réelle et n'en auront, probablement, jamais.
Pourtant sur le papier, tout indique le contraire. Le bitcoin est artificiellement limité à 21 millions d'unités, ce qui en ferait quelque chose de rare jusqu'à devenir le nouvel or digital ou encore mieux, la nouvelle monnaie globale.
Pour que le bitcoin devienne une vraie monnaie, il a besoin de 3 choses : - Être facilement échangeable entre les gens. - Être accepté par tous, y compris et surtout par le gouvernement. - Et enfin avoir une valeur stable qui ne fluctue pas.
Le bitcoin ne coche aucune de ces 3 cases. Et le deuxième point est sans doute le plus important. Ce n'est pas demain que des états comme la France ou les Etats-Unis vont accepter une monnaie anonyme et qui permet l'évasion fiscale.
Sans compter la difficulté et les gros risques de stockage de tes cryptomonnaies. Aujourd'hui, ta banque est responsable de ton argent. Si demain, t'as l'équipe de Casa de Papel qui vient lui dire bonjour, c'est pas très grave car ton argent est garanti par une très grosse assurance. Alors qu'avec les cryptomonnaires, tu es l'unique responsable de ton portefeuille. Tu es tout seul si tu te fais hacker ou cambrioler. Ce genre d'histoires arrive tous les jours avec des millions d'euros qui sont volés en équivalent bitcoin.
Est-ce que la vidéo t'a plu ? Dis moi ce que t'en penses en commentaires. Démolis-moi ce bouton LIKE et abonne-toi.
Un gros MERCI et on se retrouve au sommet

[ CryptoCurrency ] Comparison between Avalanche, Cosmos and Polkadot

[ 🔴 DELETED 🔴 ] Topic originally posted in CryptoCurrency by xSeq22x [link]
A frequent question I see being asked is how Cosmos, Polkadot and Avalanche compare? Whilst there are similarities there are also a lot of differences. This article is not intended to be an extensive in-depth list, but rather an overview based on some of the criteria that I feel are most important.
For better formatting see https://medium.com/ava-hub/comparison-between-avalanche-cosmos-and-polkadot-a2a98f46c03b

Overview

Cosmos

Cosmos is a heterogeneous network of many independent parallel blockchains, each powered by classical BFT consensus algorithms like Tendermint. Developers can easily build custom application specific blockchains, called Zones, through the Cosmos SDK framework. These Zones connect to Hubs, which are specifically designed to connect zones together.
The vision of Cosmos is to have thousands of Zones and Hubs that are Interoperable through the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC). Cosmos can also connect to other systems through peg zones, which are specifically designed zones that each are custom made to interact with another ecosystem such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. Cosmos does not use Sharding with each Zone and Hub being sovereign with their own validator set.
For a more in-depth look at Cosmos and provide more reference to points made in this article, please see my three part series — Part One, Part Two, Part Three
https://youtu.be/Eb8xkDi_PUg

Polkadot

Polkadot is a heterogeneous blockchain protocol that connects multiple specialised blockchains into one unified network. It achieves scalability through a sharding infrastructure with multiple blockchains running in parallel, called parachains, that connect to a central chain called the Relay Chain. Developers can easily build custom application specific parachains through the Substrate development framework.
The relay chain validates the state transition of connected parachains, providing shared state across the entire ecosystem. If the Relay Chain must revert for any reason, then all of the parachains would also revert. This is to ensure that the validity of the entire system can persist, and no individual part is corruptible. The shared state makes it so that the trust assumptions when using parachains are only those of the Relay Chain validator set, and no other. Interoperability is enabled between parachains through Cross-Chain Message Passing (XCMP) protocol and is also possible to connect to other systems through bridges, which are specifically designed parachains or parathreads that each are custom made to interact with another ecosystem such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. The hope is to have 100 parachains connect to the relay chain.
For a more in-depth look at Polkadot and provide more reference to points made in this article, please see my three part series — Part One, Part Two, Part Three
https://youtu.be/_-k0xkooSlA

Avalanche

Avalanche is a platform of platforms, ultimately consisting of thousands of subnets to form a heterogeneous interoperable network of many blockchains, that takes advantage of the revolutionary Avalanche Consensus protocols to provide a secure, globally distributed, interoperable and trustless framework offering unprecedented decentralisation whilst being able to comply with regulatory requirements.
Avalanche allows anyone to create their own tailor-made application specific blockchains, supporting multiple custom virtual machines such as EVM and WASM and written in popular languages like Go (with others coming in the future) rather than lightly used, poorly-understood languages like Solidity. This virtual machine can then be deployed on a custom blockchain network, called a subnet, which consist of a dynamic set of validators working together to achieve consensus on the state of a set of many blockchains where complex rulesets can be configured to meet regulatory compliance.
Avalanche was built with serving financial markets in mind. It has native support for easily creating and trading digital smart assets with complex custom rule sets that define how the asset is handled and traded to ensure regulatory compliance can be met. Interoperability is enabled between blockchains within a subnet as well as between subnets. Like Cosmos and Polkadot, Avalanche is also able to connect to other systems through bridges, through custom virtual machines made to interact with another ecosystem such as Ethereum and Bitcoin.

Comparison between Cosmos, Polkadot and Avalanche

A frequent question I see being asked is how Cosmos, Polkadot and Avalanche compare? Whilst there are similarities there are also a lot of differences. This article is not intended to be an extensive in-depth list, but rather an overview based on some of the criteria that I feel are most important. For a more in-depth view I recommend reading the articles for each of the projects linked above and coming to your own conclusions. I want to stress that it’s not a case of one platform being the killer of all other platforms, far from it. There won’t be one platform to rule them all, and too often the tribalism has plagued this space. Blockchains are going to completely revolutionise most industries and have a profound effect on the world we know today. It’s still very early in this space with most adoption limited to speculation and trading mainly due to the limitations of Blockchain and current iteration of Ethereum, which all three of these platforms hope to address. For those who just want a quick summary see the image at the bottom of the article. With that said let’s have a look

Scalability

Cosmos

Each Zone and Hub in Cosmos is capable of up to around 1000 transactions per second with bandwidth being the bottleneck in consensus. Cosmos aims to have thousands of Zones and Hubs all connected through IBC. There is no limit on the number of Zones / Hubs that can be created

Polkadot

Parachains in Polkadot are also capable of up to around 1500 transactions per second. A portion of the parachain slots on the Relay Chain will be designated as part of the parathread pool, the performance of a parachain is split between many parathreads offering lower performance and compete amongst themselves in a per-block auction to have their transactions included in the next relay chain block. The number of parachains is limited by the number of validators on the relay chain, they hope to be able to achieve 100 parachains.

Avalanche

Avalanche is capable of around 4500 transactions per second per subnet, this is based on modest hardware requirements to ensure maximum decentralisation of just 2 CPU cores and 4 GB of Memory and with a validator size of over 2,000 nodes. Performance is CPU-bound and if higher performance is required then more specialised subnets can be created with higher minimum requirements to be able to achieve 10,000 tps+ in a subnet. Avalanche aims to have thousands of subnets (each with multiple virtual machines / blockchains) all interoperable with each other. There is no limit on the number of Subnets that can be created.

Results

All three platforms offer vastly superior performance to the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum 1.0. Avalanche with its higher transactions per second, no limit on the number of subnets / blockchains that can be created and the consensus can scale to potentially millions of validators all participating in consensus scores ✅✅✅. Polkadot claims to offer more tps than cosmos, but is limited to the number of parachains (around 100) whereas with Cosmos there is no limit on the number of hubs / zones that can be created. Cosmos is limited to a fairly small validator size of around 200 before performance degrades whereas Polkadot hopes to be able to reach 1000 validators in the relay chain (albeit only a small number of validators are assigned to each parachain). Thus Cosmos and Polkadot scores ✅✅
https://preview.redd.it/ththwq5qdhq51.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=92f75152c90d984911db88ed174ebf3a147ca70d

Decentralisation

Cosmos

Tendermint consensus is limited to around 200 validators before performance starts to degrade. Whilst there is the Cosmos Hub it is one of many hubs in the network and there is no central hub or limit on the number of zones / hubs that can be created.

Polkadot

Polkadot has 1000 validators in the relay chain and these are split up into a small number that validate each parachain (minimum of 14). The relay chain is a central point of failure as all parachains connect to it and the number of parachains is limited depending on the number of validators (they hope to achieve 100 parachains). Due to the limited number of parachain slots available, significant sums of DOT will need to be purchased to win an auction to lease the slot for up to 24 months at a time. Thus likely to lead to only those with enough funds to secure a parachain slot. Parathreads are however an alternative for those that require less and more varied performance for those that can’t secure a parachain slot.

Avalanche

Avalanche consensus scan scale to tens of thousands of validators, even potentially millions of validators all participating in consensus through repeated sub-sampling. The more validators, the faster the network becomes as the load is split between them. There are modest hardware requirements so anyone can run a node and there is no limit on the number of subnets / virtual machines that can be created.

Results

Avalanche offers unparalleled decentralisation using its revolutionary consensus protocols that can scale to millions of validators all participating in consensus at the same time. There is no limit to the number of subnets and virtual machines that can be created, and they can be created by anyone for a small fee, it scores ✅✅✅. Cosmos is limited to 200 validators but no limit on the number of zones / hubs that can be created, which anyone can create and scores ✅✅. Polkadot hopes to accommodate 1000 validators in the relay chain (albeit these are split amongst each of the parachains). The number of parachains is limited and maybe cost prohibitive for many and the relay chain is a ultimately a single point of failure. Whilst definitely not saying it’s centralised and it is more decentralised than many others, just in comparison between the three, it scores ✅
https://preview.redd.it/lv2h7g9sdhq51.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=56eada6e8c72dbb4406d7c5377ad15608bcc730e

Latency

Cosmos

Tendermint consensus used in Cosmos reaches finality within 6 seconds. Cosmos consists of many Zones and Hubs that connect to each other. Communication between 2 zones could pass through many hubs along the way, thus also can contribute to latency times depending on the path taken as explained in part two of the articles on Cosmos. It doesn’t need to wait for an extended period of time with risk of rollbacks.

Polkadot

Polkadot provides a Hybrid consensus protocol consisting of Block producing protocol, BABE, and then a finality gadget called GRANDPA that works to agree on a chain, out of many possible forks, by following some simpler fork choice rule. Rather than voting on every block, instead it reaches agreements on chains. As soon as more than 2/3 of validators attest to a chain containing a certain block, all blocks leading up to that one are finalized at once.
If an invalid block is detected after it has been finalised then the relay chain would need to be reverted along with every parachain. This is particularly important when connecting to external blockchains as those don’t share the state of the relay chain and thus can’t be rolled back. The longer the time period, the more secure the network is, as there is more time for additional checks to be performed and reported but at the expense of finality. Finality is reached within 60 seconds between parachains but for external ecosystems like Ethereum their state obviously can’t be rolled back like a parachain and so finality will need to be much longer (60 minutes was suggested in the whitepaper) and discussed in more detail in part three

Avalanche

Avalanche consensus achieves finality within 3 seconds, with most happening sub 1 second, immutable and completely irreversible. Any subnet can connect directly to another without having to go through multiple hops and any VM can talk to another VM within the same subnet as well as external subnets. It doesn’t need to wait for an extended period of time with risk of rollbacks.

Results

With regards to performance far too much emphasis is just put on tps as a metric, the other equally important metric, if not more important with regards to finance is latency. Throughput measures the amount of data at any given time that it can handle whereas latency is the amount of time it takes to perform an action. It’s pointless saying you can process more transactions per second than VISA when it takes 60 seconds for a transaction to complete. Low latency also greatly increases general usability and customer satisfaction, nowadays everyone expects card payments, online payments to happen instantly. Avalanche achieves the best results scoring ✅✅✅, Cosmos with comes in second with 6 second finality ✅✅ and Polkadot with 60 second finality (which may be 60 minutes for external blockchains) scores ✅
https://preview.redd.it/qe8e5ltudhq51.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=18a2866104590f81a818690337f9121161dda890

Shared Security

Cosmos

Every Zone and Hub in Cosmos has their own validator set and different trust assumptions. Cosmos are researching a shared security model where a Hub can validate the state of connected zones for a fee but not released yet. Once available this will make shared security optional rather than mandatory.

Polkadot

Shared Security is mandatory with Polkadot which uses a Shared State infrastructure between the Relay Chain and all of the connected parachains. If the Relay Chain must revert for any reason, then all of the parachains would also revert. Every parachain makes the same trust assumptions, and as such the relay chain validates state transition and enables seamless interoperability between them. In return for this benefit, they have to purchase DOT and win an auction for one of the available parachain slots.
However, parachains can’t just rely on the relay chain for their security, they will also need to implement censorship resistance measures and utilise proof of work / proof of stake for each parachain as well as discussed in part three, thus parachains can’t just rely on the security of the relay chain, they need to ensure sybil resistance mechanisms using POW and POS are implemented on the parachain as well.

Avalanche

A subnet in Avalanche consists of a dynamic set of validators working together to achieve consensus on the state of a set of many blockchains where complex rulesets can be configured to meet regulatory compliance. So unlike in Cosmos where each zone / hub has their own validators, A subnet can validate a single or many virtual machines / blockchains with a single validator set. Shared security is optional

Results

Shared security is mandatory in polkadot and a key design decision in its infrastructure. The relay chain validates the state transition of all connected parachains and thus scores ✅✅✅. Subnets in Avalanche can validate state of either a single or many virtual machines. Each subnet can have their own token and shares a validator set, where complex rulesets can be configured to meet regulatory compliance. It scores ✅ ✅. Every Zone and Hub in cosmos has their own validator set / token but research is underway to have the hub validate the state transition of connected zones, but as this is still early in the research phase scores ✅ for now.

Current Adoption

Cosmos

The Cosmos project started in 2016 with an ICO held in April 2017. There are currently around 50 projects building on the Cosmos SDK with a full list can be seen here and filtering for Cosmos SDK . Not all of the projects will necessarily connect using native cosmos sdk and IBC and some have forked parts of the Cosmos SDK and utilise the tendermint consensus such as Binance Chain but have said they will connect in the future.

Polkadot

The Polkadot project started in 2016 with an ICO held in October 2017. There are currently around 70 projects building on Substrate and a full list can be seen here and filtering for Substrate Based. Like with Cosmos not all projects built using substrate will necessarily connect to Polkadot and parachains or parathreads aren’t currently implemented in either the Live or Test network (Kusama) as of the time of this writing.

Avalanche

Avalanche in comparison started much later with Ava Labs being founded in 2018. Avalanche held it’s ICO in July 2020. Due to lot shorter time it has been in development, the number of projects confirmed are smaller with around 14 projects currently building on Avalanche. Due to the customisability of the platform though, many virtual machines can be used within a subnet making the process incredibly easy to port projects over. As an example, it will launch with the Ethereum Virtual Machine which enables byte for byte compatibility and all the tooling like Metamask, Truffle etc. will work, so projects can easily move over to benefit from the performance, decentralisation and low gas fees offered. In the future Cosmos and Substrate virtual machines could be implemented on Avalanche.

Results

Whilst it’s still early for all 3 projects (and the entire blockchain space as a whole), there is currently more projects confirmed to be building on Cosmos and Polkadot, mostly due to their longer time in development. Whilst Cosmos has fewer projects, zones are implemented compared to Polkadot which doesn’t currently have parachains. IBC to connect zones and hubs together is due to launch Q2 2021, thus both score ✅✅✅. Avalanche has been in development for a lot shorter time period, but is launching with an impressive feature set right from the start with ability to create subnets, VMs, assets, NFTs, permissioned and permissionless blockchains, cross chain atomic swaps within a subnet, smart contracts, bridge to Ethereum etc. Applications can easily port over from other platforms and use all the existing tooling such as Metamask / Truffle etc but benefit from the performance, decentralisation and low gas fees offered. Currently though just based on the number of projects in comparison it scores ✅.

Enterprise Adoption

Cosmos

Cosmos enables permissioned and permissionless zones which can connect to each other with the ability to have full control over who validates the blockchain. For permissionless zones each zone / hub can have their own token and they are in control who validates.

Polkadot

With polkadot the state transition is performed by a small randomly selected assigned group of validators from the relay chain plus with the possibility that state is rolled back if an invalid transaction of any of the other parachains is found. This may pose a problem for enterprises that need complete control over who performs validation for regulatory reasons. In addition due to the limited number of parachain slots available Enterprises would have to acquire and lock up large amounts of a highly volatile asset (DOT) and have the possibility that they are outbid in future auctions and find they no longer can have their parachain validated and parathreads don’t provide the guaranteed performance requirements for the application to function.

Avalanche

Avalanche enables permissioned and permissionless subnets and complex rulesets can be configured to meet regulatory compliance. For example a subnet can be created where its mandatory that all validators are from a certain legal jurisdiction, or they hold a specific license and regulated by the SEC etc. Subnets are also able to scale to tens of thousands of validators, and even potentially millions of nodes, all participating in consensus so every enterprise can run their own node rather than only a small amount. Enterprises don’t have to hold large amounts of a highly volatile asset, but instead pay a fee in AVAX for the creation of the subnets and blockchains which is burnt.

Results

Avalanche provides the customisability to run private permissioned blockchains as well as permissionless where the enterprise is in control over who validates the blockchain, with the ability to use complex rulesets to meet regulatory compliance, thus scores ✅✅✅. Cosmos is also able to run permissioned and permissionless zones / hubs so enterprises have full control over who validates a blockchain and scores ✅✅. Polkadot requires locking up large amounts of a highly volatile asset with the possibility of being outbid by competitors and being unable to run the application if the guaranteed performance is required and having to migrate away. The relay chain validates the state transition and can roll back the parachain should an invalid block be detected on another parachain, thus scores ✅.

Interoperability

Cosmos

Cosmos will connect Hubs and Zones together through its IBC protocol (due to release in Q1 2020). Connecting to blockchains outside of the Cosmos ecosystem would either require the connected blockchain to fork their code to implement IBC or more likely a custom “Peg Zone” will be created specific to work with a particular blockchain it’s trying to bridge to such as Ethereum etc. Each Zone and Hub has different trust levels and connectivity between 2 zones can have different trust depending on which path it takes (this is discussed more in this article). Finality time is low at 6 seconds, but depending on the number of hops, this can increase significantly.

Polkadot

Polkadot’s shared state means each parachain that connects shares the same trust assumptions, of the relay chain validators and that if one blockchain needs to be reverted, all of them will need to be reverted. Interoperability is enabled between parachains through Cross-Chain Message Passing (XCMP) protocol and is also possible to connect to other systems through bridges, which are specifically designed parachains or parathreads that each are custom made to interact with another ecosystem such as Ethereum and Bitcoin. Finality time between parachains is around 60 seconds, but longer will be needed (initial figures of 60 minutes in the whitepaper) for connecting to external blockchains. Thus limiting the appeal of connecting two external ecosystems together through Polkadot. Polkadot is also limited in the number of Parachain slots available, thus limiting the amount of blockchains that can be bridged. Parathreads could be used for lower performance bridges, but the speed of future blockchains is only going to increase.

Avalanche

A subnet can validate multiple virtual machines / blockchains and all blockchains within a subnet share the same trust assumptions / validator set, enabling cross chain interoperability. Interoperability is also possible between any other subnet, with the hope Avalanche will consist of thousands of subnets. Each subnet may have a different trust level, but as the primary network consists of all validators then this can be used as a source of trust if required. As Avalanche supports many virtual machines, bridges to other ecosystems are created by running the connected virtual machine. There will be an Ethereum bridge using the EVM shortly after mainnet. Finality time is much faster at sub 3 seconds (with most happening under 1 second) with no chance of rolling back so more appealing when connecting to external blockchains.

Results

All 3 systems are able to perform interoperability within their ecosystem and transfer assets as well as data, as well as use bridges to connect to external blockchains. Cosmos has different trust levels between its zones and hubs and can create issues depending on which path it takes and additional latency added. Polkadot provides the same trust assumptions for all connected parachains but has long finality and limited number of parachain slots available. Avalanche provides the same trust assumptions for all blockchains within a subnet, and different trust levels between subnets. However due to the primary network consisting of all validators it can be used for trust. Avalanche also has a much faster finality time with no limitation on the number of blockchains / subnets / bridges that can be created. Overall all three blockchains excel with interoperability within their ecosystem and each score ✅✅.

Tokenomics

Cosmos

The ATOM token is the native token for the Cosmos Hub. It is commonly mistaken by people that think it’s the token used throughout the cosmos ecosystem, whereas it’s just used for one of many hubs in Cosmos, each with their own token. Currently ATOM has little utility as IBC isn’t released and has no connections to other zones / hubs. Once IBC is released zones may prefer to connect to a different hub instead and so ATOM is not used. ATOM isn’t a fixed capped supply token and supply will continuously increase with a yearly inflation of around 10% depending on the % staked. The current market cap for ATOM as of the time of this writing is $1 Billion with 203 million circulating supply. Rewards can be earnt through staking to offset the dilution caused by inflation. Delegators can also get slashed and lose a portion of their ATOM should the validator misbehave.

Polkadot

Polkadot’s native token is DOT and it’s used to secure the Relay Chain. Each parachain needs to acquire sufficient DOT to win an auction on an available parachain lease period of up to 24 months at a time. Parathreads have a fixed fee for registration that would realistically be much lower than the cost of acquiring a parachain slot and compete with other parathreads in a per-block auction to have their transactions included in the next relay chain block. DOT isn’t a fixed capped supply token and supply will continuously increase with a yearly inflation of around 10% depending on the % staked. The current market cap for DOT as of the time of this writing is $4.4 Billion with 852 million circulating supply. Delegators can also get slashed and lose their DOT (potentially 100% of their DOT for serious attacks) should the validator misbehave.

Avalanche

AVAX is the native token for the primary network in Avalanche. Every validator of any subnet also has to validate the primary network and stake a minimum of 2000 AVAX. There is no limit to the number of validators like other consensus methods then this can cater for tens of thousands even potentially millions of validators. As every validator validates the primary network, this can be a source of trust for interoperability between subnets as well as connecting to other ecosystems, thus increasing amount of transaction fees of AVAX. There is no slashing in Avalanche, so there is no risk to lose your AVAX when selecting a validator, instead rewards earnt for staking can be slashed should the validator misbehave. Because Avalanche doesn’t have direct slashing, it is technically possible for someone to both stake AND deliver tokens for something like a flash loan, under the invariant that all tokens that are staked are returned, thus being able to make profit with staked tokens outside of staking itself.
There will also be a separate subnet for Athereum which is a ‘spoon,’ or friendly fork, of Ethereum, which benefits from the Avalanche consensus protocol and applications in the Ethereum ecosystem. It’s native token ATH will be airdropped to ETH holders as well as potentially AVAX holders as well. This can be done for other blockchains as well.
Transaction fees on the primary network for all 3 of the blockchains as well as subscription fees for creating a subnet and blockchain are paid in AVAX and are burnt, creating deflationary pressure. AVAX is a fixed capped supply of 720 million tokens, creating scarcity rather than an unlimited supply which continuously increase of tokens at a compounded rate each year like others. Initially there will be 360 tokens minted at Mainnet with vesting periods between 1 and 10 years, with tokens gradually unlocking each quarter. The Circulating supply is 24.5 million AVAX with tokens gradually released each quater. The current market cap of AVAX is around $100 million.

Results

Avalanche’s AVAX with its fixed capped supply, deflationary pressure, very strong utility, potential to receive air drops and low market cap, means it scores ✅✅✅. Polkadot’s DOT also has very strong utility with the need for auctions to acquire parachain slots, but has no deflationary mechanisms, no fixed capped supply and already valued at $3.8 billion, therefore scores ✅✅. Cosmos’s ATOM token is only for the Cosmos Hub, of which there will be many hubs in the ecosystem and has very little utility currently. (this may improve once IBC is released and if Cosmos hub actually becomes the hub that people want to connect to and not something like Binance instead. There is no fixed capped supply and currently valued at $1.1 Billion, so scores ✅.

All three are excellent projects and have similarities as well as many differences. Just to reiterate this article is not intended to be an extensive in-depth list, but rather an overview based on some of the criteria that I feel are most important. For a more in-depth view I recommend reading the articles for each of the projects linked above and coming to your own conclusions, you may have different criteria which is important to you, and score them differently. There won’t be one platform to rule them all however, with some uses cases better suited to one platform over another, and it’s not a zero-sum game. Blockchain is going to completely revolutionize industries and the Internet itself. The more projects researching and delivering breakthrough technology the better, each learning from each other and pushing each other to reach that goal earlier. The current market is a tiny speck of what’s in store in terms of value and adoption and it’s going to be exciting to watch it unfold.

MetaDAO - update

MetaDAO - update
Wax on. Wax off.
Quick update on the MetaDAO concept and outreach to Edgeware one of the first Substrate based chains after Polkadot and Kusama.
Since the intial post, both Polkadot and Kusama have seen explosive growth, with Polkadot now #6 on Coingecko and Kusama #60. Edgeware is at #107 and all have treasuries to spend - c$8m in $EDG, c$6 $KSM and $38m $DOT.
The reaction to both the proposal and building bridges to Decred from the (small) Edgeware community has been positive - you can see an overview of last week's community call here on Commonwealth, which is their expanded version of something like Politeia and hosts various conversations and threads.
There is another call today at 2:45pm EST - you can join a google hangout here if you're interested. Hopefully the call will progress the conversations again.
So what values / characteristics do Decred and Edgeware have in common?
Well both are focused on governance, both launched aiming to offer a wide and fair distribution (info on lockdrop here) and both have treasuries that can sustain them long into the future.
There are also key differences.
Decred is older (and perhaps a little jaded) prioritising slow, careful progress that considers every action through the lens of unintended consequences with the aim of maximising privacy and security.
It is a philosophy rooted in the project's origins at Company 0 - see 'return to zero' and the north star of building a fairer financial system.
Edgeware is new on the scene, filled with excitement, enthusiasm and buckets of shower thoughts that would be shot down in an instant by the Decred community. The project will not be as secure or private as Decred but will move faster and can potentially become a bridge to the wider ecosystem, taking chances the older project can't (or won't)...
Now I'm showing my age, but when seen side by side, the two projects reminds me of the central relationship in the 80's classic The Karate Kid.
Mr Myagi is the old master weary of new things.
“Never put passion in front of principle, even if you win, you’ll lose”.
Daniel San is the young and impetuous grasshopper.
Together they achieve great things and teach other a few things along the way.
Aaaaanyway....
The next stage is to move the concept to a formalised proposal for Edgeware's council to vote on (it is an NPOS system) and a request for funding that can officially kick off the MetaDAO project and potential areas for collaboration and co-financing.
Post this, I will also submit a formal proposal to Politieia to hopefully gain stakeholder approval and gain extra insights along the way.
u/jet_user has suggested a few ideas here.
- Personally I'm interested in the "real stuff" that boosts autonomy and resilience of individuals: open hardware, UX improvement to solve that huge self-custody UX challenge, security audits (perhaps we use some common libraries), etc.
- devs in the smart contract land might borrow some elements of dcrdex's coin swap sequence (coordinating a peer-to-peer swap required to figure out a lot of ugly edge cases), or we could borrow something from them.
- new forum software with stronger transparency, integrity protection and data preservation properties that has Reddit-like UX but Politeia-like security and transparency.
- Another is crypto job market/bounty system/issue tracker combo to unlock the energy sitting on the sidelines and improve mass coordination.
I think Decred could integrate with Commonwealth for working group discussions ahead of Pi-Reddit and could perhaps also utilise the project's infrastructure for subDAOs ahead of being possible with Decred.
One other area that I'm particularly interested in is figuring out a way to bring alive the story of Open Source - a definitive history of the movement, it's achievements and the path to Bitcoin, Decred, et al but done in a contemporary (and cool) way that connects to a much bigger picture and is hosted on decentralised streaming infrastructure like Livepeer.
Right now it is still a story that most do not understand nor connect with.
Ultimately Decred was created to solve the funding issue in OSS so I feel it is an important piece of the puzzle that will aid in the project's broader awareness and understanding in the long term.
Until now all content about this revolution has been delivered in a very old school TV way - see Open Source Money.

Dans une conférence en ligne, le gouverneur de la banque centrale britannique (BoE) Andrew Bailey s’est livré à l’exercice d'un discours anti-Bitcoin mais pro-stablecoin

Aujourd'hui le gouverneur de la banque centrale d’Angleterre s’est livré à l’exercice d'un discours anti-Bitcoin mais pro-stablecoin, c'est-à-dire en faveur des monnaies d'états numériques.
Evidemment les stablecoins n'amélioreraient pas du tout la situation actuelle en encourageant la disparition du cash en faveur d'une monnaie encore plus facile à contrôler et tracer par des entités constituant un point de défaillance centralisé.
Mais surtout cela révèle une faille majeure dans la stratégie de la version de Bitcoin la plus connue à ce jour nommée BTC: il faut arrêter de croire que les gouvernements vont accepter Bitcoin comme monnaie aussi facilement! Cette approche était déjà morte et c'était prévisible depuis le début.
Le seul moyen d'assurer l'adoption c'est de construire une utilité massive et non monétaire qui le rend impossible à interdire comme monnaie par la suite. Des sites comme bit.ly/baemail ou bit.ly/twetchapp, dont je parle plus bas et régulièrement sur cette page.
COMMENT EN EST-ON ARRIVÉ LÀ ?
Bitcoin a été conçu dès le début avec la capacité d'inclure des données (jusqu'à 4 gigas par transaction!) et un langage de programmation propre permettant de coder un nombre infini d'applications. De plus peu de gens savent que le code original de Bitcoin contenait une place de marché et un client de poker, montrant bien l'objectif de l'utiliser comme base pour des applications dans l'économie numérique!
Aujourd'hui la version la plus connue, nommée BTC, a abandonné ces objectifs en limitant volontairement la capacité du réseau à 3 transactions par seconde, en retirant la capacité d'inclure des données dans les transactions, et en désactivant le langage de programmation original. Avec des frais de 4€/transaction en moyenne, peu de gens peuvent se permettre de l'utiliser, et BTC est donc devenu facile à stopper par des entités corrompues.
Mais alors que faire ?
La seule stratégie gagnante est de développer un maximum d'applications utiles pour que les gens et les entreprises utilisent Bitcoin au quotidien pour d'autres utilisations qu'une monnaie. C'est la stratégie poursuivie par la version de Bitcoin nommée BSV, qui a également retiré toutes les limites imposées sur BTC: remise en place des 4 gigas de données par transaction, réactivation du langage de programmation propre, et suppression de toute limite de débit, atteignant déjà les 3500 par secondes avec des frais moyens de 0.0001€ par transaction. Mais ce n'est pas tout !
L'élément le plus important est le développement massif d'un écosystème d'applications innovantes: emails permettant d'envoyer de l'argent comme bit.ly/baemail, réseaux sociaux incensurables et rémunérateurs comme bit.ly/twetchapp, site de vidéos permettant de vendre à la minute regardée comme http://streamanity.com, pour n'en citer que quelques uns.
Vous les retrouverez tous sur https://metastore.app/apps?sort=money alors mettez cette page en favoris pour plus tard !
MAIS SURTOUT !...
et c'est le plus important: grâce à ces applications les nouveaux utilisateurs peuvent gagner des bitcoins sans jamais avoir à en acheter, et ceux qui en possèdent peuvent les dépenser directement dans l'économie bitcoin sans avoir à les revendre.
Un tel écosystème est non seulement vertueux mais en plus impossible à stopper car tout à fait légal, décentralisé et va devenir de plus en plus important dans l'économie des pays.
Vous voulez gagnez des bitcoins sans avoir à en acheter ? voici les applications qui vous permettent de le faire: https://metastore.app/earn

Minter est un nouveau format pour les relations numériques entre les personnes.

Minter est un nouveau format pour les relations numériques entre les personnes.

https://preview.redd.it/i5n1yqp3jwl51.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=e0c0c959eae179abfdf29d83a0a29e76f9ce74dc
Heureux de vous accueillir, cher ami. Aujourd'hui, je voudrais faire une revue du projet appelé «Minter Network», pour vous présenter toutes ses capacités pour une compréhension maximale.
Donc, un peu d'histoire. J'ai personnellement découvert la blockchain «Minter» avant son lancement officiel. C'était en octobre 2018. J'ai travaillé dans un studio de développement qui travaillait sur des projets sur la blockchain. Il y avait une équipe de gars intelligents et intelligents qui étaient toujours à jour avec toutes les nouvelles du monde de la cryptographie. Il y avait donc des informations sur le lancement prochain de la blockchain «Minter», qui nous a intéressé.
Je suis devenu investisseur Minter à l'automne 2018 au début. Le cœur de réseau de la blockchain Minter a été lancé le 15 mai 2019.

https://preview.redd.it/xqee9t49jwl51.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=e50a2189a7fa2bb47c62b864ba072269351dad73

Qu'est-ce qu'un "Minter"?

À partir d'un document officiel, «Minter» est une blockchain qui permet aux particuliers, aux projets et aux entreprises d'émettre et de gérer leurs propres pièces, ainsi que de les vendre au juste prix du marché avec une liquidité absolue et instantanée.
La blockchain Minter fonctionne sur le moteur Tendermint, la technologie derrière le projet Cosmos Network, et utilise un algorithme de consensus appelé DPoS (Delegate Proof-of-Stake, «Délégation de preuve de participation»). Ce fait indique que «Minter» sera automatiquement compatible avec de nombreux projets existants et futurs de cet écosystème prometteur.
L'idéologie de Minter est basée sur le travail scientifique d'économistes célèbres: le lauréat du prix Nobel d'économie Friedrich von Hayek a fait valoir que l'argent n'est qu'un type d'information et doit donc être dénationalisé et donc produit par toute personne physique ou morale, et John Maynard Keynes a proposé une nouvelle une monnaie de réserve mondiale appelée le banquier, qui deviendrait l'unité de compte internationale pour la liquidité du commerce international.

BIP - la principale crypto-monnaie du réseau Minter

Le jeton natif de Minter est appelé BIP, qui signifie Blockchain Instant Payment. Son objectif est de satisfaire les besoins du marché réel, notamment des transferts rapides entre utilisateurs, de faibles commissions (voire leur absence) et, bien sûr, une offre solide de pièces d'un montant de 10 milliards de BIP.
Pour l'utilisateur final, le BIP offre d'énormes avantages compétitifs par rapport aux pièces conventionnelles: les transferts sont effectués en quelques secondes, et le volume des transactions est de dizaines de milliers par minute; la commission moyenne est bien inférieure à 1 cent et peut ne pas être facturée du tout; les noms d'utilisateur peuvent être utilisés comme adresses.
La vitesse de traduction est vraiment impressionnante. Littéralement 2 secondes, et les pièces que vous avez envoyées sont déjà sur un autre portefeuille. Cette propriété est comparable au paiement dans un magasin avec une carte de crédit, lorsque le processus d'envoi de fonds se produit instantanément.
Le nombre maximum de jetons sera de 10 milliards; la distribution devrait être achevée à une altitude de 43 702 611 blocs en sept ans environ.

Un service de création de vos propres pièces à la disposition de chaque utilisateur

Le réseau Minter vous permet de créer des pièces personnalisées avec une réserve de BIP, qui peuvent être instantanément reconverties en BIP ou en d'autres pièces émises sur le réseau.
Immédiatement après sa création, les pièces auront une valeur réelle, fournie par une réserve du BIP et des formules économiques. De plus, la réserve crée une liquidité absolue et instantanée pour tous les acteurs du marché, car n'importe quelle pièce peut être échangée contre une autre en quelques secondes et sans intermédiaire. Étant donné que Minter fait partie du réseau Cosmos, les pièces peuvent également être échangées contre Bitcoin (BTC) et Ether (ETH), ainsi que toute autre crypto-monnaie utilisant la technologie de swap atomique.

Qu'est-ce que le masternode?

Masternode - est un serveur sur un réseau décentralisé. Il est utilisé pour effectuer des fonctions uniques que les nœuds ordinaires (incomplets) ne peuvent pas exécuter. Il s'agit de transactions directes / instantanées ou de transferts privés.

Qui sont les validateurs?

Minter Blockchain s'appuie sur un ensemble de validateurs chargés de générer de nouveaux blocs dans la blockchain. Les validateurs participent à un protocole de consensus en transmettant des votes contenant des signatures cryptographiques signées par la clé privée de chaque validateur.
Les validateurs et leurs délégués reçoivent le BIP en tant que récompenses en bloc ainsi qu'en commissions.

Qui sont les délégués?

Tout utilisateur du réseau peut déléguer son BIP, ainsi que toutes les pièces émises sur le réseau Minter, à des masternodes et recevoir des récompenses pour la validation des blocs et des commissions des transactions effectuées sur le réseau. Le revenu est divisé proportionnellement au steak entre tous les délégants, moins la commission du propriétaire du masternode.

Intégration avec Telegram Open Network

Dès le tout début des travaux sur la blockchain Minter, les créateurs se sont fixé comme objectif principal de créer la crypto-monnaie la plus simple, l'argent numérique. En conséquence, l'idée a évolué un peu plus loin: les développeurs veulent atteindre le niveau où toutes les pièces du réseau Minter peuvent être librement échangées les unes contre les autres, Bitcoin, éther et même USD.
Pour atteindre cet objectif, nous attendons tous ensemble la sortie de TON, qui est malheureusement reportée en raison des actions de la SEC.

Comment utiliser la crypto-monnaie BIP dans la vraie vie?

Minter crée un écosystème autour de lui, dont le but est d'utiliser le BIP dans la vie réelle, sans avoir besoin de convertir des pièces en monnaies fiduciaires. Un certain nombre de services ont déjà été créés qui vous permettent de manger pour le BIP, de commander des marchandises sur AliExpress, de reconstituer le solde de votre téléphone, de laver votre voiture, de payer un abonnement IVI, etc.
OUI OUI OUI! Pas besoin de vendre BIP en fiat, vous pouvez payer directement avec BIP.

Quelle est la valeur intrinsèque de Bitcoin ? que veut dire "posséder ses données" ?

La valeur intrinsèque de Bitcoin est la valeur que vous accorderiez à la liberté de posséder vos propres données numériques. Nous sommes nombreux à ne pas encore être habitués à cette liberté, tout comme nous n'étions pas habitués aux téléphones portables ou à Internet, mais une fois que nous en aurons fait l'expérience, nous nous demanderons comment nous avons pu vivre sans elle!
Mais que veut vraiment dire "posséder ses données" ?

Posséder vos données, c'est posséder votre avenir

L'informaticien britannique Tim Berners-Lee est crédité pour avoir inventé le Web en 1989 lorsqu'il a mis en œuvre la première communication réussie entre un client Hypertext et un serveur via Internet.
Et oui car il y a bien une différence entre le Web et Internet. Le Web est le système qui permet de naviguer de pages en pages en cliquant sur des liens dans un navigateur. Internet est le réseau ou l'infrastructure et le Web est un service sur ce réseau. Aujourd'hui le terme Internet est souvent utilisé comme englobant les deux.
Tim Berners-Lee avait ceci à dire à propos de la propriété des données: «Les clients doivent avoir le contrôle de leurs propres données - ne pas être liés à un certain fabricant, de sorte qu'en cas de problème, ils sont toujours obligés de revenir vers eux.»
Il décrit là des sites comme Facebook ou Twitter, mais si même le créateur du web nous explique que les sites les plus utilisés aujourd'hui ne respectent pas la propriété des données, que pouvons nous y faire ?

Posséder vos données, c'est aussi éviter de vous faire manipuler

"Posséder vos données, c'est posséder votre avenir." Cela semble assez simple. Mais pensez à la signification réciproque de cette déclaration. Si quelqu'un d'autre possède vos données, quelqu'un d'autre est propriétaire de votre avenir. Oui, c'est une pensée effrayante.
On peut penser que posséder ses données se limite au contenu que vous créez, mais ce n'est pas vrai. Des sites comme Facebook, Google ou Twitter sont désormais bien connus pour avoir un pris un rôle de contrôleurs et manipulateurs de l'information. Pour donner un exemple il a été prouvé que Google manipule les résultats de recherches, un employé qui à travaillé chez google pendant 8 ans avoue:
"J'ai vu quelque chose de sombre et de néfaste se passer dans l'entreprise et j'ai réalisé qu'ils allaient non seulement fausser les élections mais aussi utiliser cette falsification pour essentiellement tenter de renverser le pays." interview complète ici (en anglais)
Posséder ses données, c'est donc tout autant posséder le contrôle sur les algorithmes que vous utilisez pour vous informer.
Maintenant, je veux parler du contrôle que la propriété de vos données vous donne et comment commencer à récupérer ce pouvoir dès maintenant.

Comment Bitcoin peut vous redonner le pouvoir sur vos données

Vos données personnelles et financières sont empruntées, utilisées, volées et vendues à un rythme alarmant. Les pirates informatiques ont accédé à des données sensibles de clients de Yahoo (1 milliard), eBay (145 millions) ou encore Uber (57 millions). Equifax, la société que nous payons pour assurer la sécurité de nos données financières, a commis une faille où 143 millions de personnes se sont fait voler leur numéro de sécurité sociale, leur adresse et leur numéro de permis de conduire. Facebook possède des données personnelles sur 32% de la population mondiale.
Alors que la plupart des données sont transmises volontairement en échange d'une utilisation gratuite ou à prix réduit des services en ligne, le sentiment du marché semble évoluer en faveur de solutions plus privées où les utilisateurs conservent un plus grand contrôle sur leurs données.
Même si la demande de propriété des données semble crédible, aucune alternative n'est apparue ou n'a gagné du terrain pour le moment. Le manque de concurrence envers les géants de la monétisation des données comme Facebook et Google peut indiquer des problèmes plus fondamentaux avec nos vies en ligne.
Le rôle de la blockchain dans la propriété des données n'est pas une idée nouvelle. De nombreuses cryptomonnaies ont inclus la propriété ou la monétisation des données dans leur raison d'être. Cette vision a largement échoué à se concrétiser. Le principal problème lié à ces solutions est leur incapacité à passer à l'échelle. Mais cela est en train de changer.
De toutes les principales versions de Bitcoin, il y en a une qui accorde la plus grande importance au passage à l'échelle. Le principal moyen de grandir a été de supprimer les limitations imposées par d'autres versions de Bitcoin et de revenir le plus fidèlement possible au protocole original. Nous pensons que cette conception originale aligne les incitations économiques pour permettre à la blockchain de s'adapter à la demande actuelle ou anticipée. Ce point de vue a été largement confirmé. Après avoir fonctionné de manière indépendante depuis 2018, le débit maximal est déjà 2000 fois supérieur à celui du leader du marché. À grande échelle, Bitcoin peut être utilisé comme plus qu'un registre de transactions financières. Les transactions Bitcoin peuvent inclure tout type de données. Maintenant, cette version est la seule incluant activement des données non financières sur la blockchain comme cas d'utilisation majeur. En fait, beaucoup de participants de cet écosystème considèrent le stockage de données non financières comme le principal cas d'utilisation de Bitcoin.

En raison de cette échelle supérieure et croissante, les entrepreneurs affluent. Parmi les problèmes rencontrés par cette nouvelle génération de penseurs de Bitcoin, il y a le manque de contrôle des utilisateurs sur leurs données personnelles. Alors que la capacité de Bitcoin continue d'augmenter, son rôle dans un futur où la souveraineté des données est largement disponible devient de plus en plus important. Avec Bitcoin en tant que système de paiement mondial, de backend d'applications, de base de données et d'enregistrement horodaté immutable, l'avenir de l'économie des données est l'une des nombreuses autres options pour les particuliers et les entreprises - un avenir d'opportunités économiques accrues.
Qu'est-ce que la propriété des données sur Bitcoin?
La beauté de l'information est que vous pouvez la donner à quelqu'un d'autre sans la perdre vous-même. Les avantages en sont évidents, mais cela pose des problèmes de sécurité difficiles. Chaque fois que vous partagez des informations avec quelqu'un, il y a un risque qu'il les expose à quelqu'un que vous ne voudriez pas. Bitcoin ne peut pas résoudre ce problème, bien qu'il puisse augmenter l'efficacité des contrats autour de la gestion des données et de l'application de ces contrats. Ce que Bitcoin peut faire, c'est réduire considérablement le besoin de transmettre vos données personnelles en premier lieu. Pour certains, moins il y a d'entreprises qui disposent de leurs données, mieux c'est. Pour tout le monde, moins il y a d'entreprises qui ont leurs données, moins les données sont volées par des pirates. En plus de réduire la nécessité pour les applications de collecter des données, Bitcoin facilite également le dégroupage des applications du stockage de données. Cela donne aux utilisateurs un meilleur contrôle sur leurs données et crée un paysage d'applications plus compétitif. Enfin, Bitcoin offre aux entreprises confrontées à des coûts de gestion des données augmentant rapidement, un moyen simple de maintenir la qualité des produits sans avoir à conserver les données personnelles des utilisateurs.
Les micropaiements pour nous libérer de la publicité
D'un point de vue commercial, le but de la plupart des collectes de données est de vendre des publicités. Les publicités sont omniprésentes dans notre expérience en ligne. En fait, il est difficile d'imaginer la vie sans publicités ciblées sur chaque page. Cependant cela ne signifie pas que la publicité est un modèle naturel ou efficace pour générer des revenus en ligne.
Notre réalité dominée par la publicité découle de nos options de paiement limitées en ligne. Les paiements par carte de crédit sont la norme. Les frais commencent souvent à 0,30€, ce qui rend les petits paiements économiquement irréalisables. Même sur le géant chinois des paiements Alipay, la plus petite taille de paiement possible est de 1 CNY soit environ 0,15€. Parce que les options de paiement sont limitées et coûteuses pour les montants inférieurs à 5€, il est souvent difficile de facturer des informations, qui ont régulièrement une valeur commerciale en centimes ou même en microcentimes.
Considérez cette question. Dans l'économie actuelle, quelle vidéo est la plus intéressante à créer:
- une vidéo où 100 millions de personnes paieraient 0,1 centime pour voir
- une vidéo que 100 personnes paieraient 1 000€ pour voir
- ou une vidéo que 1 million de personnes paieraient 1€ pour voir?
La valeur pour les consommateurs de la vidéo à 1€ est la plus élevée d'un facteur 10, mais c'est la moins précieuse pour le producteur dans l'environnement de paiement actuel. Il est impossible de collecter 1€ auprès d'un million de personnes lorsque 10 millions de vues sur une vidéo YouTube génèrent environ 0,01 centime par clic et que les solutions existantes fonctionnent pour le contenu premium. Du point de vue de l'annonceur, la capacité à générer des clics est bien plus importante que la valeur réelle pour le consommateur.
Combien paieriez-vous pour une recherche Google? Ce n'est probablement pas 1€, mais cela pourrait facilement être 1c (1centime). À 20 recherches par jour, 1c par recherche génère un coût de 73€ par an. Les consommateurs préfèrent-ils ce coût à la remise de l'intégralité de leur historique de recherche à Google? Un meilleur produit de recherche peut-il être proposé si les revenus sont générés par recherche plutôt que par le biais d'un modèle d'annonce? Les réponses à ces questions ne viendront pas tant que de meilleures solutions de paiement ne seront pas largement utilisées. La bonne nouvelle est que la technologie de paiement existe aujourd'hui dans Bitcoin (BSV).
Les frais de transaction Bitcoin (BSV) médians sont actuellement de 0.00035€ et en baisse. Des applications comme Money Button rendent le paiement avec Bitcoin extrêmement facile. La conversion vers et depuis Bitcoin (BSV) entraîne toujours des coûts conséquents, mais comme de plus en plus d'utilisateurs sont disposés à en détenir, l'efficacité des micropaiements en tant que moyen de générer des revenus en ligne augmente. Alternativement, il peut être utilisé comme backend pour les versions tokenisées de monnaies fiduciaires qui peuvent également bénéficier des faibles frais sur le réseau Bitcoin. Alors que le coût d'envoi continue de baisser, le modèle publicitaire sera mis à l'épreuve. Les géants financés par la publicité peuvent-ils concurrencer les entreprises qui facturent des tarifs extrêmement bas pour leurs services? Les produits financés par la publicité peuvent-ils concurrencer l'expérience utilisateur d'une alternative qui tire la majorité de son financement de micropaiements? Pour certains utilisateurs, la réponse est certainement non. Pour ces utilisateurs, le besoin de transmettre leurs données personnelles est considérablement réduit, ce qui signifie une expérience de commerce en ligne beaucoup plus privée et sécurisée.
Dissociation les données des applications, le secret du Metanet
La plupart des applications impliquent aujourd'hui de consommer, générer, partager ou modifier des données. Ces données dynamiques sont de plus en plus stockées sur des serveurs cloud privés plutôt que sur une machine locale. Les serveurs basés sur le cloud offrent beaucoup d'efficacité, mais nous devons transmettre nos données pour profiter de ces gains d'efficacité.
Bitcoin est comme un serveur cloud surpuissant. Il existe de nombreux processeurs de transactions Bitcoin à travers le monde. Chacun est incité à conserver une copie complète de la base de données des transactions. Bitcoin donne à vos données une redondance implicite et une livraison facile puisque le réseau est mondial. De plus, il devient constamment plus efficace et moins coûteux à utiliser. Bitcoin est en passe de devenir le plus grand CDN (réseau de diffusion de contenu) de la planète. De plus, il est immutable. Cela signifie que nous pouvons être sûrs que les données stockées sur la blockchain Bitcoin aujourd'hui seront pour toujours inchangés. Les implications de cela vont de l'avantage apparemment insignifiant de faire des liens morts une chose du passé à l'avantage plus profond d'avoir un enregistrement de la vérité. Cette propriété d'immutabilité n'est pas vraie pour les opérateurs de cloud privé qui peuvent facilement modifier, perdre, supprimer ou supprimer l'accès aux données des utilisateurs. Ajoutez à ça la création de plusieurs honeypot de données, c'est-à-dire une grande concentration de données sur un seul système, pour attirer les hackeurs. Même des géants du web comme Target ont démontré une sécurité des données incroyablement inférieure aux normes avec des pirates informatiques utilisant des données de carte de crédit non cryptées aussi récemment qu'en 2015.
Comment le Metanet peut mieux protéger votre vie privée
À première vue, les données stockées sur une blockchain publique peuvent sembler beaucoup moins privées que les données stockées sur un cloud comme AWS (Amazon Web Services). Cependant, même si les données Bitcoin peuvent être lues par n'importe qui, des techniques simples peuvent être utilisées pour faire de la blockchain un endroit extrêmement privé et sécurisé pour le stockage de données. Les techniques de cryptage standard permettent de stocker les données de manière cryptée et privée. Les utilisateurs de Bitcoin peuvent également générer une nouvelle paire de clés publique et privée pour chaque transaction. Cela signifie que les divers composants de l'ensemble de données d'un individu peuvent être liés à des adresses distinctes qui ne peuvent pas être connectées à moins que cet individu ne fournisse un moyen de le faire. De nouvelles techniques sont constamment développées pour accroître la souveraineté des données. Prenons comme exemple les preuves à connaissance nulle. Initialement appliquées à la blockchain pour prouver des fonds suffisants pour le paiement sans révéler le total des fonds, ces preuves à connaissance nulle peuvent être utilisées pour exécuter des fonctions telles que prouver son âge sans exposer sa date de naissance!
Libérez vos données des réseaux sociaux
Le stockage de données sur la blockchaine peut servir de police d'assurance contre des entreprises puissantes comme Facebook, dont les taux d'approbation ont chuté en dessous de 50% dans un sondage de mars 2018. Même avec un public aigri sur les pratiques commerciales de Facebook, relativement peu de personnes ont quitté leur plate-forme. Pourquoi? Vos données sont retenues en otage: extraire vos amis, vos photos, vos statuts et tout le reste sur une autre plate-forme n'est pas faisable. Si ces données étaient stockées sur la blockchain, elles le seraient.
Twetch , une nouvelle startup similaire à Twitter, est basée sur Bitcoin. L'interface utilisateur est similaire, mais il existe deux différences majeures. La première différence est que toutes les données sont stockées sur la blockchain. Cela signifie qu'un utilisateur insatisfait pourrait conserver ses tweet si un concurrent émergeait. Il est même possible pour plusieurs entreprises de servir le même ensemble de données et de rivaliser sur la conception, les fonctionnalités ou le prix. Les techniques de cryptage pourraient également être utilisées pour autoriser sélectivement différentes plates-formes pour des éléments de contenu spécifiques. Twetch utilise également des micropaiements pour fournir une expérience utilisateur supérieure. En facturant quelques centimes pour les tweet, les suivis, les likes et les commentaires, le coût du spam de Twetch avec des faux comptes et des likes devient prohibitif, ce qui réduit le spam à zéro. De plus, étant donné que la majeure partie de ces paiements va au créateur de contenu, un twetcher populaire peut gagner de l'argent s'il produit du contenu apprécié par ses abonnés.
La plus grande base de données jamais créée
En fin de compte, nous nous attendons à ce que le stockage sur blockchain soit moins cher que l'utilisation de fournisseurs de services cloud comme AWS. Nous pensons que les économies de coûts et la souveraineté accrue des données conduiront à une migration massive vers des applications stockant des données sur la blockchain sur un horizon de 5 à 10 ans. Le stockage des données au même endroit conduit à d'autres gains d'efficacité difficiles à imaginer dans le paradigme actuel.
Nous nous attendons à ce qu'une efficacité similaire émerge parmi les applications. L'interopérabilité des applications devient beaucoup plus facile car les données sont stockées sur Bitcoin, ce qui permet aux innovations d'interfaces utilisateurs de proliférer. Les méthodes innovantes de distribution des données à partir de la plus grande base de données jamais créée proliféreront dans l'économie Bitcoin. Le PDG de Planaria Corp prédit que BitcoinSV sera la solution au problème mondial des données et il construit les outils pour débloquer cet avenir de données basé sur Bitcoin.
Faciliter la conformité en laissant les utilisateurs libres
Les lois européennes sur la confidentialité GDPR, la loi brésilienne LGPD et les lois californiennes sur la confidentialité des consommateurs peuvent être une réaction aux scandales Cambridge Analytica et Facebook, mais elles entraînent également d'énormes amendes et des coûts de conformité qui changent le paysage technologique, en particulier la façon dont les entreprises gèrent les données. Les entreprises doivent utilisent de nouvelles technologies de stockage pour empêcher les données de traverser les frontières afin de se conformer aux nouvelles lois.
Les entreprises qui offrent des tarifs plus compétitifs aux utilisateurs grâce à la blockchain mèneront à l'adoption de Bitcoin en tant que backend d'application public contrôlé par les utilisateurs. La possibilité de facturer de petits paiements plutôt que de monétiser les données personnelles est une autre aubaine pour les entreprises qui cherchent à réduire les coûts de conformité.
La deuxième naissance de Bitcoin
Aux débuts de Bitcoin, les paiements classiques ressemblaient à une industrie en retard sur le reste du monde, une cible facile pour innover via la blockchain. En refusant de se développer de manière agressive, Bitcoin (BTC) a laissé tomber sa chance en laissant la place à une nouvelle génération de startups fintech qui sont venues combler le vide. Mais les problèmes mondiaux liés aux données ne seront probablement pas résolus aussi facilement.
Les plus grandes entreprises du monde sont inextricablement liées à un modèle de revenus publicitaires basé sur les données. Sans Bitcoin, il n'y a aucun moyen pratique de résoudre ces problèmes fondamentaux. Bien que le rôle de Bitcoin dans l'augmentation de la souveraineté des données n'ait pas réussi à atteindre un large public à ce stade, son potentiel est clairement perçu par les entrepreneurs. Certains de ces entrepreneurs cherchent à utiliser Bitcoin depuis des années mais ont été contrariés par les caprices des développeurs du protocole de BTC. D'autres entrepreneurs ont trouvé la vision de BitcoinSV de la blockchain en tant que base de données mondiale beaucoup plus captivante que le concept d'or numérique de BTC. Ce qui unit tous ces entrepreneurs, c'est la conviction que Bitcoin à grande échelle changera la nature de la façon dont les individus traitent et interagissent avec leurs données.

Bitcoin est-il trop difficile à comprendre ?

J’ai passé une grande partie des trois dernières années à expliquer Bitcoin au grand public et la résistance la plus courante qu’on m’a opposée c’est que « Bitcoin est trop compliqué » et que « les masses ne comprendront jamais ».
C’est un argument valable. Bitcoin est compliqué et si vous voulez obtenir à une vision complète du panorama, il faudra d’abord connaitre l’Histoire de la monnaie puis comprendre le fonctionnement des réseaux peer-to-peer et de la cryptographie.
C’est pour cette raison que je trouve étrange d’entendre des amis affirmer que Bitcoin est « inévitable ». On semble croire qu’un jour le grand public comprendra soudainement les mérites de Bitcoin et l’adoptera par lui-même. Ce n’est certainement pas ce qui m’est arrivé. Pour comprendre Bitcoin j’ai dû passer des heures à lire des articles, des livres, à écouter des podcasts, à regarder des vidéos et à débattre des concepts sous-jacents sur des forums. Peut-être que si Andreas Antonopolous n’avait pas mis en ligne 500 vidéos ou que Nathaniel Popper n’avait pas écrit Digital Gold, je ferais aujourd’hui partie de ceux qui considèrent que Bitcoin est une escroquerie.
La croyance inverse c’est que Bitcoin est tout simplement trop compliqué pour que de simples mortels le comprennent, et que l’adoption de masse ne se produira que lorsque Bitcoin et le Lightning Network sont si simples que les grand-mères pourront l’utiliser. Dans The Gates of Bitcoin, John Carvalho appelle cela « l’erreur du rasoir de grand-mère » : la croyance qu’une culture élitiste doit envelopper tout nouvelle technologie pour « protéger » les gens d’eux-mêmes. Il souligne également : « Heureusement, les humains ont démontré leur capacité à comprendre n’importe quoi quand ils ont une motivation suffisante pour le faire. »
Nous avons vu cela se reproduire encore et encore dans les 11 ans d’histoire de Bitcoin. En 2011, Wikileaks a appris à utiliser Bitcoin très rapidement quand Visa, MasterCard, PayPal et Western Union ont suspendu ses comptes sous la pression du Sénat américain. Bien que Satoshi Nakamoto lui-même ait demandé à Wikileaks de NE PAS utiliser Bitcoin [NdT : pour ne pas attirer l’attention sur un projet qui lui semblait encore immature], Wikileaks l’a quand même fait et on estime que l’organisation a reçu environ 4000 BTC de dons. Non seulement ça a maintenu Wikileaks en vie malgré l’effort coordonné pour le tuer financièrement, mais ça lui a constitué un trésor qui lui permet de subsister aujourd’hui encore.
Un autre exemple, mon préféré, date de 2014. La Women’s Annex Foundation (WAF) en Afghanistan a utilisé Bitcoin pour payer ses membres pour leurs travaux de rédaction, de développement de logiciels et de montage vidéo. C’était sous le régime taliban et les femmes n’étaient pas autorisées à posséder des comptes bancaires, à gagner leur vie par elles-mêmes ou même à aller à l’école.
La motivation est une chose puissante. Quand c’est une question de vie ou de mort, les gens découvrent soudain qu’il n’est pas si difficile de télécharger une application mobile et de copier-coller une adresse. Bitcoin ne devient soudainement beaucoup plus simple.
Je veux revenir un peu plus sur la complexité de Bitcoin. Il y a des nuances à établir. Bitcoin est certainement difficile à comprendre, mais cela ne veut pas dire qu’il est difficile à utiliser. La plupart des gens peuvent conduire une voiture ou envoyer un email sans comprendre le moteur à combustion interne ou le protocole SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol). Et les deux sont sans doute considérés comme « trop compliqués » pour les masses.
L’idée même de « difficulté » peut être analysée. Je vais la décomposer en deux concepts : la difficulté technique et la difficulté perçue.
La difficulté technique est la compétence requise pour exécuter quelque chose, comme télécharger une application, conduire une voiture ou jouer du violon. Vous devez apprendre à utiliser l’outil. Les concepteurs peuvent (partiellement) réduire les compétences requises en créant des outils conviviaux, mais on ne peut s’en passer complètement. Pourtant, lorsque nous regardons le nombre de personnes qui peuvent conduire des voitures et utiliser les médias sociaux, nous voyons que des millions de gens, y compris des mamies, sont prêts à apprendre des opérations complexes si en échange ils peuvent se rendre au centre commercial ou débattre avec des anonymes sur Twitter.
La difficulté perçue est l’obstacle psychologique, c’est-à-dire la croyance que quelque chose est difficile. C’est quand on renonce à essayer de comprendre quelque chose parce que cela semble trop difficile. La difficulté perçue est omniprésente. Les gens prétendront qu’il est « trop difficile » de suivre un régime ou d’étudier pour un examen lorsque, même lorsque du point de vue de la difficulté technique, les choses sont faciles : Ne pas manger le gâteau, aller dans sa chambre et étudier. Le problème, ce sont les incitations. Les gens ne veulent pas étudier et veulent bouffer le gâteau. Les amener à changer de comportement n’a rien à voir avec la difficulté technique et tout à voir avec la motivation.
J’ai rencontré plusieurs fois ce type de difficultés dans Bitcoin. Les gens me disent souvent, par exemple, qu’ils ont acheté des bitcoins mais qu’ils les ont laissés sur un exchange. Et à chaque fois que j’expliquais que c’était une mauvaise idée [et que je leur suggérais de détenir eux-même leurs bitcoins], ils me répondaient : « C’est trop compliqué ». Cela m’a incité à écrire non pas un, mais deux articles. L’un pour expliquer pourquoi garder Bitcoin sur un exchange est une mauvaise idée, et l’autre pour expliquer comment configurer un portefeuille, en faisant aussi court et simple que possible. J’ai envoyé les deux articles à l’une de ces personnes. Finalement, elle a cédé, elle a téléchargé un wallet, sauvegardé sa phrase de récupération et a retiré ses bitcoins de l’exchange. « Ok, ce n’était pas si difficile », a-t-elle finalement convenu.
Avec Lightning, nous pourrions éventuellement être en mesure de réduire complètement la difficulté technique liée à l’utilisation de Bitcoin. Sur le Lightning Network, vous n’avez pas besoin de penser aux blocs, aux confirmations ou aux frais. À mesure que le réseau mûrit, vous n’aurez peut-être plus à vous soucier des canaux ou de leur capacité. Et avec des produits comme Strike, vous n’aurez peut-être même pas besoin de savoir que vous utilisez Lightning. L’ambition de Lightning est de fournir à terme une expérience utilisateur extrêmement simple tout en conservant la liberté et l’autonomie qui font l’intérêt et la réputation de Bitcoin. Mais même si cette situation était possible dès demain, la difficulté perçue resterait.
La bonne nouvelle est que la difficulté perçue est finalement une culture. Quand j’étais enfant, l’utilisation d’un ordinateur était considérée comme tellement ardue que vous aviez besoin d’un cours d’informatique pour être apte à en utiliser un. Aujourd’hui, vous êtes considéré comme fonctionnellement analphabète si vous ne pouvez pas utiliser un ordinateur à l’âge de dix ans. Mais les habitudes ne changent pas d’elles-mêmes. Nous devons être proactifs si nous voulons que Bitcoin devienne tout ce qu’il pourrait être pour ceux qui en ont besoin. Nous devons modifier sa perception et aligner les incitations.

The Truth about Bitcoin?

Part 1/4 - NSA Connection:
First off, the SHA-256 algorithm, which stands for Secure Hash Algorithm 256, is a member of the SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions designed by the NSA and first published in 2001.
SHA-256, like other hash functions, takes any input and produces an output (often called a hash) of fixed length. The output of a hashing algorithm such as SHA-256 will always be the same length - regardless of the input size. Specifically, the output is, as the name suggests, 256 bits.
Moreover, all outputs appear completely random and offer no information about the input that created it.
The Bitcoin Network utilises the SHA-256 algorithm for mining and the creation of new addresses.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? What does Satoshi Nakamoto mean?
Out of respect for their anonymity, it would be rude to speculate in a video about who Satoshi Nakamoto is likely to be. The reality is, it's not important. Let me explain: Any human being can be attacked. Jesus could come back from the dead, and there would be haters. Therefore, the Satoshi Nakamoto approach neutralises the natural human herd behaviour, exacerbated by the media, to attack and discredit. This is a very important part of Bitcoin's success thus far. Also, from a security perspective, those who wish to dox Satoshi Nakamoto in a video are essentially putting his, or her, or their, life at risk...for the sake of views.
As a genius who has produced an innovation not just from a technical perspective but also a monetary perspective, they should be treated with more respect than that.
As for the name Satoshi Nakamoto, I would speculate that it is a homage to Tatsuaki Okamoto and Satoshi Obana - two cryptographers from Japan. There is another reason for the name, but that...is confidential.
In 1996, the NSA's Cryptology Division of their Office of Information Security Research and Technology published a paper titled: "How to make a mint: The cryptography of anonymous electronic cash", first publishing it in an MIT mailing list and later, in 1997, in the American University Law Review. One of the researchers they referenced was Tatsuaki Okamoto.

Part 2/4 - 'Crypto Market':
Most of the crypto market is a scam.
By the way, this was predicted very early on in the Bitcoin Talk forums - check out this interaction from November 8th, 2010:
"if bitcoin really takes off I can see lots of get-rich-quick imitators coming on the scene: gitcoin, nitcoin, witcoin, titcoin, shitcoin...
Of course the cheap imitators will disappear as quickly as those 1990s "internet currencies", but lots of people will get burned along the way."
To which Bitcoin OG Gavin Andresen replies:
"I agree - we're in the Wild West days of open-source currency. I expect people will get burned by scams, imitators, ponzi schemes and price bubbles."
"I don't think there's a whole lot that can be done about scammers, imitators and ponzi schemes besides warning people to be careful with their money (whether dollars, euros or bitcoins)."
Now, on the one hand, lack of regulation is more meritocratic (as you don't have to be an accredited investor just to get access).
On the other hand, it means that crypto is, as Gavin said, a Wild West environment, with many cowboys in the Desert. Be careful.
This is the same with most online courses - particularly 'How to get rich quick' courses - however with crypto you have an exponential increase in the supply of victims during the bull cycles so it is particularly prevalent during those times.
In addition to this, leverage trading exchanges, which are no different to casinos, prey on naive retail traders who:
A) Think they can outsmart professional traders with actual risk management skills; and
B) Think they can outsmart the exchanges themselves who have an informational advantage as well as an incentive to chase stop losses and liquidate positions.

Part 3/4 - CBDCs:
The Fed and Central Banks around the world have printed themselves into a corner.
Quantitative easing was the band-aid for the Great Financial Crisis in 2008, and more recent events have propelled the rate of money printing to absurd levels.
This means that all currencies are in a race to zero - and it becomes a game of who can print more fiat faster.
The powers that be know that this fiat frenzy is unsustainable, and that more and more people are becoming aware that it is a debt based system, based on nothing.
The monetary system devised by bankers, for bankers, in 1913 on Jekyll Island and supercharged in 1971 is fairly archaic and also does not allow for meritocratic value transfer - fiat printing itself increases inequality.
They, obviously, know this (as it is by design).
The issue (for them) is that more and more people are starting to become aware of this.
Moving to a modernised monetary system will allow those who have rigged the rules of the game for the last Century to get away scot-free.
It will also pave the way for a new wealthy, and more tech literate, elite to emerge - again predicted in the Bitcoin Talk forums.
Now...back to the powers that be.
Bitcoin provides a natural transition to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and what I would describe as Finance 2.0, but what are the benefits of CBDCs for the state?
More control, easier tax collection, more flexibility in monetary policy (i.e. negative interest rates) and generally a more efficient monetary system.
This leads us to the kicker: which is the war on cash. The cashless society was a fantasy just a few years ago, however now it doesn't seem so far fetched. No comment.

Part 4/4 - Bitcoin:
What about Bitcoin?
Well, Bitcoin has incredibly strong network effects; it is the most powerful computer network in the World.
But what about Bitcoin's reputation?
Bankers hate it.
Warren Buffett hates it.
Precisely, and the public hates bankers.
Sure, the investing public respects Buffett, but the general public perception of anyone worth $73 billion is not exactly at all time highs right now amid record wealth inequality.
In the grand scheme of things, the market cap of Bitcoin is currently around $179 billion.
For example, the market cap of Gold is around $9 trillion, which is 50x the Market Cap of Bitcoin.
Money has certain characteristics.
In my opinion, what makes Bitcoin unique is the fact that it has a finite total supply (21 million) and a predictable supply schedule via the halving events every 4 years, which cut in half the rate at which new Bitcoin is released into circulation.
Clearly, with these properties, it seems likely that Bitcoin could act as a meaningful hedge against inflation.
One of the key strengths of Bitcoin is the fact that the Network is decentralised...
Many people don't know that PayPal originally wanted to create a global currency similar to crypto.
Overall, a speculative thesis would be the following:
Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the most important entities of the 21st Century, and will accelerate the next transition of the human race.
Trusted third parties are security holes.
Bitcoin is the catalyst for Finance 2.0, whereby value transfer is conducted in a more meritocratic and decentralised fashion.
In 1964, Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev designed the Kardashev Scale.
At the time, he was looking for signs of extraterrestrial life within cosmic signals.
The Scale has three categories, which are based on the amount of usable energy a civilisation has at its disposal, and the degree of space colonisation.
Generally, a Type 1 Civilisation has achieved mastery of its home planet (10^16W);
A Type 2 Civilisation has mastery over its solar system (10^26W);
and a Type 3 Civilisation has mastery over its Galaxy (10^36W).
We humans are a Type 0 Civilisation on this Scale.
Nonetheless, our exponential technological growth in the few decades indicates that we are somewhere between Type 0 and Type 1.
In fact, according to Carl Sagan's interpolated Kardashev Scale and recent global energy consumption, we are about 0.73.
Physicist Freeman Dyson estimated that within 200 years or so, we should attain Type 1 status.
As a technology that, through its decentralisation, links entities globally and makes value transfer between humans more efficient, Bitcoin could prove a key piece of our progression as a civilisation.
What are your thoughts?
Is it true...or false?

In addition to this, leverage trading exchanges, which are no different to casinos, prey on naive retail traders who:
A) Think they can outsmart professional traders with actual risk management skills; and
B) Think they can outsmart the exchanges themselves who have an informational advantage as well as an incentive to chase stop losses and liquidate positions.

Part 3/4 - CBDCs:
The Fed and Central Banks around the world have printed themselves into a corner.
Quantitative easing was the band-aid for the Great Financial Crisis in 2008, and more recent events have propelled the rate of money printing to absurd levels.
This means that all currencies are in a race to zero - and it becomes a game of who can print more fiat faster.
The powers that be know that this fiat frenzy is unsustainable, and that more and more people are becoming aware that it is a debt based system, based on nothing.
The monetary system devised by bankers, for bankers, in 1913 on Jekyll Island and supercharged in 1971 is fairly archaic and also does not allow for meritocratic value transfer - fiat printing itself increases inequality.
They, obviously, know this (as it is by design).
The issue (for them) is that more and more people are starting to become aware of this.
Moving to a modernised monetary system will allow those who have rigged the rules of the game for the last Century to get away scot-free.
It will also pave the way for a new wealthy, and more tech literate, elite to emerge - again predicted in the Bitcoin Talk forums.
Now...back to the powers that be.
Bitcoin provides a natural transition to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and what I would describe as Finance 2.0, but what are the benefits of CBDCs for the state?
More control, easier tax collection, more flexibility in monetary policy (i.e. negative interest rates) and generally a more efficient monetary system.
This leads us to the kicker: which is the war on cash. The cashless society was a fantasy just a few years ago, however now it doesn't seem so far fetched. No comment.

Part 4/4 - Bitcoin:
What about Bitcoin?
Well, Bitcoin has incredibly strong network effects; it is the most powerful computer network in the World.
But what about Bitcoin's reputation?
Bankers hate it.
Warren Buffett hates it.
Precisely, and the public hates bankers.
Sure, the investing public respects Buffett, but the general public perception of anyone worth $73 billion is not exactly at all time highs right now amid record wealth inequality.
In the grand scheme of things, the market cap of Bitcoin is currently around $179 billion.
For example, the market cap of Gold is around $9 trillion, which is 50x the Market Cap of Bitcoin.
Money has certain characteristics.
In my opinion, what makes Bitcoin unique is the fact that it has a finite total supply (21 million) and a predictable supply schedule via the halving events every 4 years, which cut in half the rate at which new Bitcoin is released into circulation.
Clearly, with these properties, it seems likely that Bitcoin could act as a meaningful hedge against inflation.
One of the key strengths of Bitcoin is the fact that the Network is decentralised...
Many people don't know that PayPal originally wanted to create a global currency similar to crypto.
Overall, a speculative thesis would be the following:
Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the most important entities of the 21st Century, and will accelerate the next transition of the human race.
Trusted third parties are security holes.
Bitcoin is the catalyst for Finance 2.0, whereby value transfer is conducted in a more meritocratic and decentralised fashion.
In 1964, Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev designed the Kardashev Scale.
At the time, he was looking for signs of extraterrestrial life within cosmic signals.
The Scale has three categories, which are based on the amount of usable energy a civilisation has at its disposal, and the degree of space colonisation.
Generally, a Type 1 Civilisation has achieved mastery of its home planet (10^16W);
A Type 2 Civilisation has mastery over its solar system (10^26W);
and a Type 3 Civilisation has mastery over its Galaxy (10^36W).
We humans are a Type 0 Civilisation on this Scale.
Nonetheless, our exponential technological growth in the few decades indicates that we are somewhere between Type 0 and Type 1.
In fact, according to Carl Sagan's interpolated Kardashev Scale and recent global energy consumption, we are about 0.73.
Physicist Freeman Dyson estimated that within 200 years or so, we should attain Type 1 status.
As a technology that, through its decentralisation, links entities globally and makes value transfer between humans more efficient, Bitcoin could prove a key piece of our progression as a civilisation.

The Truth about Bitcoin?

Part 1/4 - NSA Connection:
First off, the SHA-256 algorithm, which stands for Secure Hash Algorithm 256, is a member of the SHA-2 cryptographic hash functions designed by the NSA and first published in 2001.
SHA-256, like other hash functions, takes any input and produces an output (often called a hash) of fixed length. The output of a hashing algorithm such as SHA-256 will always be the same length - regardless of the input size. Specifically, the output is, as the name suggests, 256 bits.
Moreover, all outputs appear completely random and offer no information about the input that created it.
The Bitcoin Network utilises the SHA-256 algorithm for mining and the creation of new addresses.
Who is Satoshi Nakamoto? What does Satoshi Nakamoto mean?
Out of respect for their anonymity, it would be rude to speculate in a video about who Satoshi Nakamoto is likely to be. The reality is, it's not important. Let me explain: Any human being can be attacked. Jesus could come back from the dead, and there would be haters. Therefore, the Satoshi Nakamoto approach neutralises the natural human herd behaviour, exacerbated by the media, to attack and discredit. This is a very important part of Bitcoin's success thus far. Also, from a security perspective, those who wish to dox Satoshi Nakamoto in a video are essentially putting his, or her, or their, life at risk...for the sake of views.
As a genius who has produced an innovation not just from a technical perspective but also a monetary perspective, they should be treated with more respect than that.
As for the name Satoshi Nakamoto, I would speculate that it is a homage to Tatsuaki Okamoto and Satoshi Obana - two cryptographers from Japan. There is another reason for the name, but that...is confidential.
In 1996, the NSA's Cryptology Division of their Office of Information Security Research and Technology published a paper titled: "How to make a mint: The cryptography of anonymous electronic cash", first publishing it in an MIT mailing list and later, in 1997, in the American University Law Review. One of the researchers they referenced was Tatsuaki Okamoto.

Part 2/4 - 'Crypto Market':
Most of the crypto market is a scam.
By the way, this was predicted very early on in the Bitcoin Talk forums - check out this interaction from November 8th, 2010:
"if bitcoin really takes off I can see lots of get-rich-quick imitators coming on the scene: gitcoin, nitcoin, witcoin, titcoin, shitcoin...
Of course the cheap imitators will disappear as quickly as those 1990s "internet currencies", but lots of people will get burned along the way."
To which Bitcoin OG Gavin Andresen replies:
"I agree - we're in the Wild West days of open-source currency. I expect people will get burned by scams, imitators, ponzi schemes and price bubbles."
"I don't think there's a whole lot that can be done about scammers, imitators and ponzi schemes besides warning people to be careful with their money (whether dollars, euros or bitcoins)."
Now, on the one hand, lack of regulation is more meritocratic (as you don't have to be an accredited investor just to get access).
On the other hand, it means that crypto is, as Gavin said, a Wild West environment, with many cowboys in the Desert. Be careful.
This is the same with most online courses - particularly 'How to get rich quick' courses - however with crypto you have an exponential increase in the supply of victims during the bull cycles so it is particularly prevalent during those times.

[French] Community Points FAQ

Note importante:
La version bêta du programme Community Points est sur le réseau Rinkeby. Si vous ne savez pas ce que cela signifie - ne supprimez pas vos jetons de points de communauté Reddit de votre coffre-fort Reddit en essayant d'intégrer d'autres portefeuilles Ethereum ou en les envoyant à des contrats intelligents.
Que sont les points communautaires
Les points communautaires sont une nouvelle initiative de Reddit. Ce sont des points qui représentent la propriété d'un subreddit.
Chaque communauté obtiendra ses propres points de communauté qu'elle pourra nommer et concevoir.
Où sont stockés les points communautaires?
Les points de communauté sont un type de "jeton" "Ethereum" qui est stocké sur une "blockchain" - tout comme Bitcoin!
Cela signifie qu'une fois que vous avez gagné les jetons, vous les possédez.
Vous pouvez les stocker dans votre "Reddit Vault" ou un portefeuille Ethereum traditionnel.
Combien y a-t-il de points communautaires?
Il y a un total de 250 millions de chaque type de point communautaire.
Ainsi, le sous-crédit / r / Crypto-monnaie aura un maximum de 250 millions de jetons "$ MOON", mais un autre sous-crédit aura un maximum de 250 millions de son propre jeton.
Les 250M jetons / points sont-ils tous libérés immédiatement?
Non. Pour commencer, il n'y aura que 50M de chaque jeton. Ceux-ci seront attribués aux utilisateurs en fonction des messages qu'ils ont déjà publiés dans le sous-programme.
Les autres jetons 250M seront lentement attribués sur une base hebdomadaire.
Le montant attribué chaque semaine est-il le même?
Non. Le nombre de jetons attribués diminuera chaque semaine, cela durera jusqu'à ce que les 250 millions de jetons aient été créés. La date estimée pour cela est en 2050.
Comment puis-je gagner des points / jetons communautaires?
Vous gagnerez les jetons en fonction de vos contributions au subreddit.
Lorsque vous publiez un message ou un commentaire qui fait l'objet d'un vote positif, vous gagnez une partie des jetons distribués par le système cette semaine-là.
D'autres utilisateurs peuvent également vous "donner un pourboire". Cela signifie qu'ils vous donneront certains des jetons qu'ils ont gagnés.
À quoi puis-je utiliser des points / jetons communautaires?
Vous pouvez utiliser les jetons pour acheter des "adhésions spéciales" pour chaque sous-crédit individuel.
Ces adhésions vous donnent des fonctionnalités spéciales sur le subreddit. Ceux-ci inclus:
Combien coûte l'adhésion spéciale?
Le "Membre spécial" pour un subreddit variera en coût entre différents jetons.
Sur le sous-crédit / r / Crypto-monnaie, l'adhésion coûte 1000 MOONS par mois.
Qu'advient-il des points / jetons de la communauté que j'utilise pour l'adhésion spéciale?
Lorsque vous utilisez vos jetons pour l '"adhésion spéciale", ces jetons seront "brûlés" - ce qui est de l'argot de crypto-monnaie à détruire.
Cela signifie qu'il y aura toujours moins de 250 millions de jetons car ils continueront d'être utilisés en heures supplémentaires.
Puis-je utiliser des points / jetons communautaires pour autre chose?
Oui.
Vous pourrez également utiliser les jetons que vous avez gagnés pour voter dans des sondages pondérés ou pour envoyer un pourboire à d'autres utilisateurs.
Enfin, comme il s'agit d'un jeton ERC-20 Ethereum, vous pouvez le transférer vers d'autres sites Web et l'intégrer dans d'autres produits. Cela vous permet d'acheter, de vendre, d'échanger et d'utiliser le jeton où vous le souhaitez.
Qu'est-ce que le coffre-fort Reddit?
Le "Reddit Vault" est une section spéciale de l'application mobile de Reddit qui vous permet de vous connecter à un portefeuille propulsé par Ethereum. Dans cette section, vous pourrez réclamer vos jetons, voir vos soldes de jetons et échanger les jetons.
Votre coffre-fort Reddit peut parfois également être appelé un "portefeuille" car il s'agit de la terminologie courante dans l'industrie de la blockchain.
Comment créer un coffre-fort Reddit?
Vous pouvez créer votre coffre-fort Reddit dans l'application Reddit sur iOS et Android.
Vous cliquez sur votre profil et sélectionnez «Vault» et il vous guidera à travers les étapes.
Si vous avez besoin d'instructions plus détaillées, vous pouvez consulter les instructions détaillées
Dois-je utiliser Reddit Vault comme portefeuille?
Non. Vous n'êtes pas obligé d'utiliser Reddit Vault comme portefeuille - mais cela vous permet de sauvegarder votre portefeuille sur Reddit.
Si vous souhaitez utiliser un autre portefeuille Ethereum tel que MetaMask ou Brave Browser, vous pouvez importer votre `` phrase source '' à partir de la création de ce portefeuille.
Ceci n'est recommandé que pour les utilisateurs expérimentés de crypto-monnaie.
Vous pouvez trouver les instructions pour importer votre portefeuille existant dans votre coffre-fort Reddit ici
Si je crée un portefeuille à l'aide de Reddit Vault, puis-je utiliser ce portefeuille ailleurs?
Oui.
Si vous créez votre premier portefeuille de crypto-monnaies à l'aide de Reddit Vault, oyu peut vouloir importer ce portefeuille dans un autre logiciel tel que MetaMask ou 'Brave Browser'.
Vous pouvez suivre ces instructions:
Assurez-vous de configurer votre portefeuille MetaMask ou votre portefeuille Brave Browser pour utiliser le réseau de test Rinkeby.
Qu'est-ce que la "Phrase de semence"?
Une phrase de départ est un ensemble de 12 mots aléatoires que les logiciels de portefeuille utilisent pour générer notre "clé publique" et notre "clé privée" qui composent votre portefeuille.
La phrase de départ est le seul moyen de récupérer un portefeuille de crypto-monnaie si vous perdez notre clé privée.
Où dois-je stocker ma phrase de départ?
Votre phrase source doit être stockée dans un endroit sûr. Idéalement, vous ne devriez pas conserver la phrase de départ dans une image (sur votre téléphone) ou dans un fichier téléchargé ou un bloc-notes numérique.
Il est préférable d'écrire votre phrase de départ ou d'utiliser un gestionnaire de mots de passe tel que LastPass pour le stocker en toute sécurité.
Si je perds ma phrase source, Reddit peut-il récupérer mes points de communauté?
Non.
Si vous perdez votre phrase de départ et n'avez pas votre clé privée, personne ne peut vous aider à récupérer votre portefeuille ou vos jetons. Ils sont perdus à jamais.
Puis-je perdre des points de mon solde?
Non.
Une fois que vous avez réclamé, vous avez réclamé vos points dans votre portefeuille sur la blockchain Ethereum. Personne ne peut vous retirer ces points. Pas même le personnel de Reddit.
Vous ne perdrez pas de points pour les downvotes sur vos commentaires ou sur vos messages. Vous n'apprendrez qu'un plus petit pourcentage de jetons dans la distribution de la semaine prochaine.
Qu'est-ce qu'une clé publique?
Votre clé publique (également appelée parfois votre "adresse de portefeuille") est votre adresse sur la blockchain. Elle est similaire à une adresse postale en ce qu'elle vous identifie de manière unique et permet aux gens de vous envoyer des transactions blockchain, de la même manière que quelqu'un pourrait envoyer du courrier à votre adresse personnelle.
Tout comme une adresse personnelle, les informations ne sont pas privées, mais elles sont sensibles. Vous ne voulez probablement pas que tout le monde ait l'adresse.
Votre clé publique sera une longue piqûre de chiffres et de lettres, mais sur Ethereum, elle commencera toujours par "0x"
Qu'est-ce qu'une clé privée?
Une clé privée est comme votre mot de passe. Ce sont des informations privées qui doivent être sécurisées.
Vous ne pouvez jamais modifier votre clé privée. Donc, s'il est compromis même une fois, vous devrez créer un nouveau portefeuille.
Ne partagez jamais votre clé privée avec qui que ce soit. Déjà.
Le personnel de Reddit aura-t-il besoin de connaître ma phrase de départ ou ma clé privée?
Non jamais.
Puis-je acheter / vendre des points / jetons Communit?
Il n'y a aucun échange pour ces jetons car ils sont actuellement sur le réseau de test de Rinkeby.

Now, on the one hand, lack of regulation is more meritocratic (as you don't have to be an accredited investor just to get access).
On the other hand, it means that crypto is, as Gavin said, a Wild West environment, with many cowboys in the Desert. Be careful.
This is the same with most online courses - particularly 'How to get rich quick' courses - however with crypto you have an exponential increase in the supply of victims during the bull cycles so it is particularly prevalent during those times.
In addition to this, leverage trading exchanges, which are no different to casinos, prey on naive retail traders who:
A) Think they can outsmart professional traders with actual risk management skills; and
B) Think they can outsmart the exchanges themselves who have an informational advantage as well as an incentive to chase stop losses and liquidate positions.

Part 3/4 - CBDCs:
The Fed and Central Banks around the world have printed themselves into a corner.
Quantitative easing was the band-aid for the Great Financial Crisis in 2008, and more recent events have propelled the rate of money printing to absurd levels.
This means that all currencies are in a race to zero - and it becomes a game of who can print more fiat faster.
The powers that be know that this fiat frenzy is unsustainable, and that more and more people are becoming aware that it is a debt based system, based on nothing.
The monetary system devised by bankers, for bankers, in 1913 on Jekyll Island and supercharged in 1971 is fairly archaic and also does not allow for meritocratic value transfer - fiat printing itself increases inequality.
They, obviously, know this (as it is by design).
The issue (for them) is that more and more people are starting to become aware of this.
Moving to a modernised monetary system will allow those who have rigged the rules of the game for the last Century to get away scot-free.
It will also pave the way for a new wealthy, and more tech literate, elite to emerge - again predicted in the Bitcoin Talk forums.
Now...back to the powers that be.
Bitcoin provides a natural transition to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) and what I would describe as Finance 2.0, but what are the benefits of CBDCs for the state?
More control, easier tax collection, more flexibility in monetary policy (i.e. negative interest rates) and generally a more efficient monetary system.
This leads us to the kicker: which is the war on cash. The cashless society was a fantasy just a few years ago, however now it doesn't seem so far fetched. No comment.

Part 4/4 - Bitcoin:
What about Bitcoin?
Well, Bitcoin has incredibly strong network effects; it is the most powerful computer network in the World.
But what about Bitcoin's reputation?
Bankers hate it.
Warren Buffett hates it.
Precisely, and the public hates bankers.
Sure, the investing public respects Buffett, but the general public perception of anyone worth $73 billion is not exactly at all time highs right now amid record wealth inequality.
In the grand scheme of things, the market cap of Bitcoin is currently around $179 billion.
For example, the market cap of Gold is around $9 trillion, which is 50x the Market Cap of Bitcoin.
Money has certain characteristics.
In my opinion, what makes Bitcoin unique is the fact that it has a finite total supply (21 million) and a predictable supply schedule via the halving events every 4 years, which cut in half the rate at which new Bitcoin is released into circulation.
Clearly, with these properties, it seems likely that Bitcoin could act as a meaningful hedge against inflation.
One of the key strengths of Bitcoin is the fact that the Network is decentralised...
Many people don't know that PayPal originally wanted to create a global currency similar to crypto.
Overall, a speculative thesis would be the following:
Satoshi Nakamoto is one of the most important entities of the 21st Century, and will accelerate the next transition of the human race.
Trusted third parties are security holes.
Bitcoin is the catalyst for Finance 2.0, whereby value transfer is conducted in a more meritocratic and decentralised fashion.
In 1964, Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kardashev designed the Kardashev Scale.
At the time, he was looking for signs of extraterrestrial life within cosmic signals.
The Scale has three categories, which are based on the amount of usable energy a civilisation has at its disposal, and the degree of space colonisation.
Generally, a Type 1 Civilisation has achieved mastery of its home planet (10^16W);
A Type 2 Civilisation has mastery over its solar system (10^26W);
and a Type 3 Civilisation has mastery over its Galaxy (10^36W).
We humans are a Type 0 Civilisation on this Scale.
Nonetheless, our exponential technological growth in the few decades indicates that we are somewhere between Type 0 and Type 1.
In fact, according to Carl Sagan's interpolated Kardashev Scale and recent global energy consumption, we are about 0.73.
Physicist Freeman Dyson estimated that within 200 years or so, we should attain Type 1 status.
As a technology that, through its decentralisation, links entities globally and makes value transfer between humans more efficient, Bitcoin could prove a key piece of our progression as a civilisation.
What are your thoughts?
Is it true...or false?
