Hey everyone,

I'm working on an open source library involving Bitcoin and I was wondering how many (if any) of you are currently working with cryptocurrencies in your apps & games?
 
Whether you are buying/selling them, or just accepting them as a form of payment, I'd like to get some idea of what you're doing, what APIs you're hitting, what you think of it overall, and how I can (possibly?) make things like microtransactions and in-app purchases easier for you.
 
Feel free to leave a comment on this post, or message me if you don't want to talk about it publicly.
 
Thanks!
Chris

          Are Cryptocurrencies Ready?      Cache   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://ferventcoder.com/cwilliams/archive/2014/01/14/155188.aspx

Are Cryptocurrencies Ready For Mainstream Use? Are we?

 

I'm a big fan of the major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and LiteCoin (LTC). I’m not really paying any attention to the dozens of derivative (and in some cases satirical) alternatives, such as Dogecoin and Coinye, but I think Bitcoin and Litecoin have a real shot at permanence.  

Having said that, do I think they are ready for prime time, mainstream use? Not yet, and here's why...

Cryptocoins have no intrinsic worth. In other words, they hold no value of their own. At this time, the only way *most* people (i.e. the non-enthusiast layman) can assess the value of 1BTC is by comparing it to another more established currency, like USD, EU, GBP, etc. There's simply no other way to describe it to someone else.

"But wait," I hear you argue... "I can tell the value of a Bitcoin by looking at how much someone charges for something, in Bitcoin."

This is true, however, it's also misleading. The only way this is of value is precisely BECAUSE you know the intrinsic value of what you're buying in your native currency.

Looking online, you know that you can buy a $50 Amazon Gift Card for 2.2047LTC. Therefore you can puzzle out the value of 1LTC as being a little under $25, but you're still just trading one currency for another. You know exactly what LTC is worth, because the intrinsic value of what you are buying is printed on the item.

How about something a little more abstract? If you don't know a lot about Bitcoin, or follow it regularly, would 250 apples for 1BTC sound like a good deal to you? How about 500? If it were 250 apples for $1, you'd jump on it... because you know exactly what $1 is worth. (Hint: at Bitcoin’s current valuation of roughly $900, it would be a really bad deal for the buyer.)

To take it a step further, cryptocurrencies in general are an unstable bunch. If you don't know what it's worth, and you don't know what it can buy, and you don't know it's value on any given day (or hour) then you are at the mercy of the seller at the time of purchase. This isn’t as big of a deal when buying tangible product, face to face, especially if you like to haggle. But what if you are buying digital product, with a digital currency, via an internet connection to a “faceless” website? You either accept the price, or you don’t. There’s nobody to argue with.

Unlike our U.S. Dollar, there are no printed or minted practical denominations of BTC. Sure you can buy a 1BTC coin, but with current prices hovering around $1000 per BTC, how would you spend it? Most things you would buy are in incredibly small fractions of Bitcoin.

Don’t believe me? Here’s another example: Let’s say you bought 1 Bitcoin at a bargain price of $800. A week later, it’s worth $950. Yay!! Thrilled with your windfall, you decide to purchase a $50 Amazon Gift Card later that day. Unbeknownst to you, China has decided to ban the Bitcoin exchanges (temporarily, it turns out) causing a momentary plummet in the value of 1BTC. Let’s say it’s now worth $400 (this is based on reality.) Had you purchased the gift card when your Bitcoin was worth $950, it would have cost you .05266BTC. Now it will cost you 0.125BTC. Doesn’t seem like a huge difference, but when the Bitcoin market stabilizes a couple days later, going back to approximately $900 for 1BTC, can you tell me how much you spent on that $50 gift card?

So how do we solve this problem?

How do we make BTC/LTC mainstream? How do we assign an easily understood value to a volatile currency with no physical backing?

We start by getting more and more companies to accept it. While this sounds counterintuitive, think of it like this... as a child (and with some adults), you have no perception of the value of money until you begin to see what it can buy and how hard it can be to come by. So, the more people see it, and what it can buy, the better appreciation they'll develop for its value. This will increase consumer comfort in using it. This is just a start, of course.

Another step in the right direction is to make it easier to acquire. This doesn’t mean making it cheaper, or devaluing it. Market pressure will (and should) drive that. I’m talking about the actual process of buying any cryptocurrencies. It’s getting better, but I remember buying $150 of LTC just a few months back, and it was a multiday process that involved trips to my ATM, a Western Union machine, multiple websites, and a lot of waiting and internet shadiness that ended well, but would certainly scare off the casual, less committed user.

It’s getting better.

Go take a look at overstock.com, for example. They've recently started accepting Bitcoin for everything they offer. That's a huge step in the right direction, but it’s not enough. We need more stores, big ones, to make it mainstream. Most of the retail websites you see today that accept cryptocurrencies don’t look like the type of business you’d feel comfortable giving your credit card to. Fortunately, you don’t have to.

Ultimately, like any technology, passionate early adopters will take on most of the risk (and reward) of cryptocurrencies. Do I think we’re there yet? No. Do I think we’ll get there? Yes.

If you’re interested, drop a few bucks and buy some. You don’t have to buy a whole Bitcoin or Litecoin to get started, and even if you don’t spend it, you can watch the exchange charts and see the value go up and down like stocks… only better, because you can’t spend stocks.

Jamie Dimon backtracks after claiming he 'could beat Trump' in an election

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon reversed course after taking aim at President Donald Trump during a JPMorgan event on Wednesday.

"I think I could beat Trump," Dimon said.

"Because I'm as tough as he is, I'm smarter than he is," he continued. "I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn't work with me. I'd fight right back."

But Dimon, a lifelong Democrat, also added that he could not win an election due to the "liberal side" of the Democratic Party.

Upstart exchange IEX snags its first listing from Nasdaq

The New York firm, which gained stock-exchange approval in 2016, announced Wednesday that electronic brokerage Interactive Brokers will switch its listing venue from Nasdaq to IEX in October.

IEX, which was founded by Brad Katsuyama in 2012, is known for its speed-bump stock-trading model that aims to put the world's fastest trading firms on a level playing field with investors.

The cryptocurrency Ethereum crashed by over 8% on Wednesday, extending a slump for the asset and the wider market.

Ethereum was down 8.6% to $169.12 just after 9:30 a.m. GMT (4:30 a.m. ET), a level not seen since May 2017, when Ethereum was enjoying its first price surge of the year.

The cryptocurrency is down almost 30% over the past seven days and has mirrored a wider slump in the cryptocurrency market over the past two weeks.

This year's average Goldman Sachs intern is willing to pay $6 for avocado toast and admires Obama

Former US President Barack Obama is the most admired figure among this year's global class of Goldman Sachs interns.

Each year, the investment bank surveys its summer interns on topics as varied as their ambitions and their spending habits. Seventy-six percent of the 3,162 summer analysts and associates who interned at Goldman worldwide this summer responded to the questionnaire. Goldman published the results on Wednesday.

One of the more frivolous results indicated that the interns were willing to pay $6 on average for avocado toast, the popular millennial brunch dish.

Obama was the most popular choice as a role model, followed by Sheryl Sandberg, Nelson Mandela, and Steve Jobs.

Michael Patterson reports in Bloomberg,
...The virtual-currency mania of 2017 -- fueled by hopes that Bitcoin would become “digital gold” and that blockchain-powered tokens would reshape industries from finance to food -- has quickly given way to concerns about excessive hype, security flaws, market manipulation, tighter regulation and slower-than-anticipated adoption by Wall Street.

Crypto bulls dismiss negative comparisons to the dot-com era by pointing to the Nasdaq Composite’s recovery to fresh highs 15 years later, and to the internet’s enormous impact on society. They also note that Bitcoin has rebounded from past crashes of similar magnitude.

But even if the optimists prove right and cryptocurrencies eventually transform the world, this year’s selloff has underscored that progress is unlikely to be smooth.

WatchGuard’s Q2 2018 Internet Security Report uncovers heightened use of credential-focused attacks and continued prevalence of malicious Office documents

12 September 2018 New research from the WatchGuard Threat Lab shows the emergence of the Mimikatz credential-stealing malware as a top threat and the growing popularity of brute force login attacks against web applications. The research also reveals that 50 percent of government and military employee LinkedIn passwords, largely from the US, were weak enough to be cracked in less than two days, underscoring the reality that passwords alone can’t offer sufficient protection and the need for multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions. WatchGuard’s Internet Security Report for Q2 2018 explores the latest security threats affecting small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises.


New Security Research Reveals Password Inadequacy Still a Top Threat

Corey Nachreiner

“Authentication is the cornerstone of security and we’re seeing overwhelming evidence of its critical importance in the common trend of password- and credential-focused threats throughout Q2 2018,” said Corey Nachreiner, chief technology officer at WatchGuard Technologies. “Whether it’s an evasive credential-stealing malware variant or a brute force login attack, cyber criminals are laser-focused on hacking passwords for easy access to restricted networks and sensitive data. At WatchGuard, these trends are driving new innovative defences within our product portfolio, including AuthPoint, our Cloud-based multi-factor authentication solution and our IntelligentAV service, which leverages three malware detection engines to prevent malware strains that evade traditional signature-based antivirus products. Every organisation should seek out vendor and solution provider partners that offer layered protection against these ever-evolving attack techniques.”

The insights, research and security best practices included in WatchGuard’s quarterly Internet Security Report are designed to help organisations of all sizes understand the current cyber security landscape and better protect themselves, their partners and customers from emerging security threats. The top takeaways from the Q2 2018 report include:

Mimikatz was the most prevalent malware variant in Q2. Representing 27.2 percent of the top 10 malware variants listed last quarter, Mimikatz is a well-known password and credential stealer that has been popular in past quarters but has never been the top strain. This surge in Mimikatz’s dominance suggests that authentication attacks and credential theft are still major priorities for cyber criminals another indicator that passwords alone are inadequate as a security control and should be fortified with MFA services that make hackers’ lives harder by requiring additional authentication factors in order to successfully login and access the network.

Roughly half of government and military employee passwords are weak. After conducting a thorough analysis of the 2012 LinkedIn data dump to identify trends in user password strength, WatchGuard’s Threat Lab team found that half of all passwords associated with “.mil” and “.gov” email address domains within the database were objectively weak. Of the 355,023 largely US government and military account passwords within the database, 178,580 were cracked in under two days. The most common passwords used by these accounts included “123456,” “password,” “linkedin,” “sunshine,” and “111111.” Conversely, the team found that just over 50 percent of civilian passwords were weak. These findings further illustrate the need for stronger passwords for everyone, and a higher standard for security among public service employees that handle potentially sensitive information. In addition to better password training and processes, every organisation should deploy multi-factor authentication solutions to reduce the risk of a data breach.

More than 75 percent of malware attacks are delivered over the web. A total of 76 percent of threats from Q2 were web-based, suggesting that organisations need an HTTP and HTTPS inspection mechanism to prevent the vast majority of attacks. Ranked as the fourth most prevalent web attack in particular, “WEB Brute Force Login -1.1021” enables attackers to execute a massive deluge of login attempts against web applications, leveraging an endless series of random combinations to crack user passwords in a short period of time. This attack in particular is another example of cyber criminals’ heightened focus on credential theft and shows the importance of not only password security and complexity, but the need for MFA solutions as a more effective preventative measure.

Cryptocurrency miners earn spot as a top malware variant. As anticipated, malicious cryptominers are continuing to grow in popularity as a hacking tactic, making their way into WatchGuard’s top 10 malware list for the first time in Q2. Last quarter, WatchGuard uncovered its first named cryptominer, Cryptominer.AY, which matches a javascript cryptominer called “Coinhive” and uses its victims’ computer resources to mine the popular privacy-focused cryptocurrency, Monero (XRM). The data shows that victims in the United States were the top geographical target for this cryptominer, receiving approximately 75 percent of the total volume of attacks.

Cyber criminals continue to rely on malicious Office documents. Threat actors continue to booby-trap Office documents, exploiting old vulnerabilities in the popular Microsoft product to fool unsuspecting victims. Interestingly, three new Office malware exploits made WatchGuard’s top 10 list, and 75 percent of attacks from these attacks targeted EMEA victims, with a heavy focus on users in Germany specifically.

The complete Internet Security Report features an in-depth analysis of the EFail encryption vulnerability, along with insights into the top attacks in Q2 and defensive strategies SMBs can use to improve their security posture. These finding are based on anonymized Firebox Feed data from nearly 40,000 active WatchGuard UTM appliances worldwide, which blocked nearly 14 million malware variants (449 per device) and more than 1 million network attacks (26 per device) in Q2 2018.

          Spare a Thought for Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      

Please spare a thought for Venezuela. This, the 33rd largest country in the world and with about 34 million people, the largest proven reserves of oil, the cheapest price of gasoline in the world, and was in 1950 richer than Germany, has fallen on times so hard in this once Latin America's richest country that 75% of the population lost an average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) in weight in one year because of food scarcity. And you might ask: "Why should I care?"

Venezuela is located on the northern coast of South America and shares land borders with Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, as well as Trinidad and Tobago. Officially called the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the country was colonized by Spain in 1522 but gained full independence about 300 years later and 188 years ago, in 1830. Venezuela is a charter member of many important international organizations, including the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS), Mercosur (the South American trade bloc), and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), to name a few.

Venezuela is the 10th largest exporter of oil in the world, and its economy is largely based on the petroleum sector, which accounted for over 50% of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country in 2015. Thanks to a huge government subsidy program, Venezuela has the cheapest gasoline in the world, costing $0.11 per gallon ($0.03 per litre) in 2014, even after a 6,200% increase!

Give Me Two!

Venezuela's history, although rocky, has had its glorious moments, including periods of political plurality, as well as oil-fueled economic booms that attracted immigrants from near and far (including Europe) into the country. Venezuela has also had dark moments of political turmoil, dictatorships, and economic gloom, because of various domestic and external factors.

Venezuela enjoyed both a relatively stable democracy, and significant economic growth between 1958 and the early 1980s. During this period, politics was dominated by two parties, and government revenues more than doubled after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war resulted in a huge rise in oil prices. Although the boom would soon turn to burst, it lasted long enough for Venezuelans to become known for the phrase "Ta barato, dame dos” ("It's cheap, give me two") as they bought up relatively cheap goods in their travels abroad.

In the early 1980s, the global oil glut brought down crude oil prices, and along with it, the Venezuelan economy. As a result, the country's foreign exchange reserves ran desperately low, as government debt mounted, and in desperation government devalued the currency by 100% on "Black Friday” (February 18, 1983). In addition, government announced an IMF-backed economic reform program which increased fuel, transport, and utilities prices, and lifted the price cap on some basic goods.

As a result, the country was plunged into economic and political crises, with deadly a wave of protests called the Caracazo riots in which an estimated 300 to 3,000 people died. The prevailing conditions also resulted in two unsuccessful coup attempts (in February and November, 1992), by leftist military officers, led by Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías to overthrow the government. Although Chavéz was imprisoned after the first coup attempt, he was pardoned in March 1994, thus enabling him to contest, and win, the 1998 presidential elections.

The Road to Hell

The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. And if anything, Venezuela's current tragic plight proves the adage, given the innocuous and well-intentioned start of the Chavéz-led Bolivarian Revolution.

Following his victory in the 1998 elections, Chavéz embarked on a reform campaign some have termed "institutional engineering” in a bid to consolidate his power and break the 40-year hold the two leading political parties had on Venezuelan politics. Chavéz also implemented "democratic socialist" economic policies, including the redistribution of wealth, land reform, the creating creation of worker-owned cooperatives, and the attainment of food security and food sovereignty. To implement these policies, Chavéz created social programs called Bolivarian Missions and Communes, and 100,000 state-owned cooperatives.

Venezuela suffered an economic downturn in early 2002, and this, coupled with anger about Chavéz's war on the elites, and his alignment with Fidel Castro's Cuba led to an abortive coup against his government in April 2002. That same month, managers at the state petroleum company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), went on a two-month strike over Chavéz's nominations for new members of the company's board of directors. Chavéz had long denounced PDVSA (parent company of Citgo, a US energy company) for its association with the US and business elites. After the collapse of the strike, Chávez fired 18,000 PDVSA employees and replaced them with 100,000 of his supporters, aka Chavistas.

The failed PDVSA management strike enabled Chavéz to take control of the company's coffers to fund his social programs and support his political base. By 2011, some $500 million was siphoned from the PDVSA pension fund to finance government-backed financiers. Such lavish spending inflicted the Dutch Disease on the country, with its fiscal health wrecked, despite increasing exports of, and revenues from oil.

Chavéz's policies were initially helpful, but unsustainable because of the drain on the country's finances. While poverty rates decreased 48.6% in 1999 to 32.1% in 2013, Venezuela had the one of the highest literacy rates in the region, and malnutrition fell from 21% in 1998 to 6% in 2009, price controls led to shortages of goods. Similarly, currency controls, introduced to curb capital flight exacerbated matters by leading to a shortage of foreign exchange, a decline in the value of the Bolivar, and increasing inflation.

Although oil prices increased significantly later in 2002, bringing in huge revenues, Venezuela's economy began to collapse because of what someone called RIDDS: recession, inflation, declining foreign reserves, debt, and shortages. Thus, the huge increase in government spending during the 2012 campaign to re-elect Chavéz ballooned public debt and fiscal deficit. Similarly, the decision to replace trained PDVSA personnel with revolutionaries, and deprive the company of capital decreased oil production, despite increasing levels of proven reserves of oil.

Between 2007 and 2013, inflation grew an annual rate of 27.4% (at least five times the rate for Latin America), scarcity, (especially of food, medicines and essential goods) set in, and foreign reserves fell at an alarming rate of $38 million per day. In short, all indicators pointed to trouble ahead for Venezuela when Chavéz died in March 2013.

Enter Maduro

Following the death of Chavéz, his Vice President and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicolás Maduro Moros, became Interim President. Maduro went on to win the constitutionally-mandated presidential elections in April 2013, and was inaugurated as President on April 19, 2013. A former bus driver who did not complete his high school education, Maduro made up for his lack of the charisma that Chávez, his predecessor and mentor, had by being autocratic and continuing Chávez's populist programs.

Things got worse in a hurry. Annual inflation increased from 29.4% in April 2013 to 61.5% a year later. Hyperinflation (i.e. monthly inflation rate exceeds 50%) set in in 2016 when inflation reached an annual rate of 800%, and the economy contracted almost 19%. By September 2016, 15% of Venezuelans were eating discarded food they picked from dumpsites.

In 2017, inflation reached 4,000%, as Venezuelans lost average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) because of food shortages, and 90% of them lived in poverty. To make matters worse, the US government slapped sanctions on Maduro in a bid to prevent him from raising additional funds. Last month, Venezuela's annual inflation rate reached a staggering 200,000%, meaning that prices increase by that much since August 2017. In addition, corruption and crime increased, and people took to the streets to protest against the difficult conditions they were enduring.

President Maduro tried every trick in the book to arrest the country's slide into chaos by increasing the minimum wage four times between April 2014 and July 2015, changing the method of calculation of inflation, introducing a crypto currency, the Petro, as well as devaluing and re-denominating the currency by cutting five zeros from it. Nothing worked.

In exasperation, Venezuelans have been voting with their feet, with an estimated 1.6 million of them having fled their country since 2015, according to the UN agency for migration. The majority of these migrants are professionals and the middle class, thereby depriving the country of much-needed human capital. The mass emigration of Venezuelans has also strained neighboring countries (especially Colombia and Peru, which have taken in almost 1 million, and over 400,000 Venezuelans, respectively), and provided graphic images to a global audience. About two weeks ago, a Summit of 13 Latin American countries agreed to reduce restrictions on Venezuelan migrants, and appealed for more international aid to enable them deal with the inflow of Venezuelans, which Venezuela's president Maduro said was "normal."

Who Cares?

Venezuela's economic meltdown should be of concern to many, including those in the Internet infrastructure industry. With one chicken costing 14 million Bolivars (about $2.2), and banks out of cash, it is easy to imagine how difficult it would be to register or renew the registration of a domain name, or purchase a certificate of authority, not to mention buy hardware such as servers. Such challenges impact many people and issues such as online privacy and safety, as well as security, both within and outside Venezuela.

Venezuela should also be a cause for concern because it has been a major source of funding for developing countries, especially in development cooperation among developing countries in the global South (the so-called South-South cooperation). Between 2000 and 2011, Venezuela spent $7.6 billion (in 2009 USD) on development finance in other countries. In addition, Venezuela initiated the Petrocaribe alliance which provides oil at concessionary terms to its 17 member countries, many of them from CARICOM, the 15-member Caribbean economic community.

Despite the unimaginable difficulties faced by Venezuelans, they continue to make significant contributions to the maintenance of the global Internet infrastructure as well as the policy development processes that underpin it. The Venezuelan ccTLD, .VE is an important part of the Internet infrastructure, along with copies of the F and L root servers. Earlier this year, the .VE ccTLD was reported to have had an additional 48,000 domain names registered compared to a year earlier. This increase, however, is probably due to the high-handed methods of the Venezuelan government which banned the use of all non-.VE domains in the country.

In partnership with the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC), Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), and ICANN, Venezuela installed copies of the F- and L-root servers in 2006, and 2015, respectively, thereby helping increasing the resilience of the Internet infrastructure in the region. Venezuela's contribution to the global Internet infrastructure includes the ALBA-1 fiber cable which connects Venezuela, Cuba and Jamaica to the Internet. Other international sub-marine cable projects Venezuela is connected to include the Americas-1 South, the Americas-II, Arcos-1, the Atlantica-1/GlobeNet, and the PAC.

Besides hardware and hard cash, Venezuela also contributes to the global Internet by participating in ICANN, and other similar regional and international organizations. Venezuela has been a member of ICANN's Government Advisory Committee (GAC) since 2014, is a member of the CCNSO as well as ALAC, and its regional structure in Latin America and the Caribbean, LACRALO. Venezuelans also contribute to the work of Internet-related regional organizations such as LACNOG and LACNIC, work in the DNS industry, and have an Internet Society (ISOC) Chapter.

What Now?

In view of the difficult economic situation in Venezuela and the contribution of the country and its people to the global Internet, it is fair to contemplate what can and should be done to support them. Clearly, support from the international community should be coordinated, and tailored to the missions of various organizations or partner providing such support.

Venezuelans themselves should take the lead in the developing a support program or programs. In this regard, organizations such as ICANN and ISOC, along with international development partners (e.g. World Bank, and the ITU), should work with Venezuelans, as well as regional partners (e.g. LACNIC) to develop a support program to address current needs and plan for the recovery of the Venezuelan economy.

Although this might be easier said than done given that the US is hell-bent on regime change in Venezuela, the old adage that there's a way where there's a will applies. ICANN, for example, can help in a number of ways including travel support to enable Venezuelans attend the organization's meetings and providing them additional slots in ICANN'S Fellowship and Future Leaders programs.

ICANN can also support the Venezuelan Internet infrastructure and DNS industry players, including ISPs, registrars, the .VE ccTLD registry, and operators of root server copies. ICANN, ISOC, and the DNS industry outside Venezuela can hire Venezuelans who are or have been active in these communities but were forced to leave their country because of the difficult circumstances prevailing there.

No Condition is Permanent

Venezuela's present predicament is a good reason to recall the Nigerian proverb: No condition is permanent! As tough as things are, they will get better. Just as the United States, which once paid tributes to Barbary (aka Ottoman) corsairs based in Tripoli, Libya, can now choose when and how to lord over that country, Venezuela will one day rise from these ashes. This is a great time to leave a lasting legacy on the minds of Venezuelans, especially the younger generation, and all hands should be on deck to help them wade through their present difficulties. So, when next you get in the mood to sing What a Wonderful World, please spare a thought for Venezuela.

          "The Great Divergence"      Cache   Translate Page      
"The Great Divergence"
by Brian Maher

"A hinge, somewhere within the financial machinery, has given way… The pretty mainstream tale of “synchronized global recovery” has been reduced to a sad jest. Even its loudest drummers can only cough behind their hands. American markets once again trade at or near record highs - it is true. But overseas markets are in a bad way…

The Chinese stock market is down 25% from its early-year high. It has therefore officially entered bear market country (a 20% decline). The Japanese stock market is down 12% over the same space - an official correction. And German stocks? Down 17% and risking a bear market all their own. Foreign orders for German capital goods have plunged 12% over the past seven months - an ill omen for Europe perhaps. Meantime, we are told that 809 of 1,150 emerging-market stocks are down 20% or more.

Observe below how the S&P 500 marched in step with global stocks until this spring. 
Then note the subsequent divergence:
Something’s not right… Bank of America claims this divergence "is reaching levels normally only exceeded in bear markets." To what strange arts do we attribute this parting of courses? What subtle alchemy is at work?

Perhaps we need look no further than 2051 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20418. That of course is the address of the Eccles Building... home to the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors.  The Federal Reserve has been raising interest rates since December 2015. Meantime, many global interest rates still wallow in negative figures.

Capital flows to where it is treated best. And at present, global capital is pouring into American markets… where it is treated grandly in comparison. As the folks at Phoenix Capital explain: "The Fed policies of raising rates is making the U.S. extremely attractive to capital. Today, the yield on short-term U.S. debt is over 2%. This is happening at a time when most of the world is still posting negative yields."

Put simply, the Fed is making U.S. debt extremely attractive to capital… at a time when other nations are punishing their debtholders. As a result of this, capital is moving into the U.S., propping up our markets while the rest of the world collapses. The trend may only accelerate - in the short run at least. The Federal Reserve’s so-called Open Market Committee meets less than two weeks from today. The market is currently placing the odds of a rate hike at 96.8% - in favor. Why it is not 96.7% or 96.9% is a mystery we are unable to penetrate.  But the business appears all but certain.

Meantime, the Federal Reserve has been hacking into its balance sheet since October last. Our agents inform us it gouged nearly $70 billion from the books in August alone - its largest reduction to date. The effect of this quantitative tightening is to siphon additional capital from overseas markets. Bank of America's Barnaby Martin, for example, asserts that quantitative tightening: "Is having the effect of pulling global capital out of those pockets of the economy that were the big beneficiaries of the post-[financial crisis] reach for yield."

American markets have been the beneficiaries of the directional flow… while overseas markets are on the skids.  But how long can this divergence endure?

In today’s vastly interlocked world, the butterfly flaps its wings somewhere and a storm rages half a world away.

Can U.S. markets retain their immunity to overseas effects? “The economy, globally, is slowing down from the fringes and going to the core,” as Hans Redeker, head of foreign exchange strategy at Morgan Stanley, recently warned. Continued Redeker: "When you see a risk in emerging markets rolling over, and you have this concentration of liquidity in the U.S., you know that the next market that is going to give in is the equity market of the United States of America."

Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at Bleakley Advisory Group, agreed with the somber assessment: "It’s hard to think that S&P 500 companies are going to be somehow immune to the slowdown we’re clearly seeing in China and the rest of Asia and also throughout Europe and Latin America."

Incidentally, nearly half the profits of S&P corporations originate abroad. We explained after last month’s Turkish contretemps that an emerging-markets crisis might not impact American shores for nearly four months - if history is a guide. That would place landfall in November or December. Regardless, things will turn the other way - eventually.  But as always, nothing happens… until it happens.

Below, Jim Rickards shows you how the dollar is becoming a victim of its own success. “Be careful what you wish for,” Jim warns. What does he mean? Read on."
"The Dollar Is Becoming a Victim of Its Own Success"
By Jim Rickards

"Turkey’s economic problems are well-known. President Erdoğan has appointed relatives and cronies to key economic policy positions. This has caused a loss of independence of the central bank and a loss of confidence in the stability of the currency, the Turkish lira.  The lira collapse has triggered hyperinflation and a stock market crash. Bond yields are soaring. This domestic crisis has the potential for global contagion because Turkey has almost $500 billion in dollar-denominated external debt, which it cannot pay if exports and tourism dry up. 

In addition, the U.S. and Turkey are in a trade war, partly due to Turkey’s detention of a U.S. minister who was traveling in Turkey. Other clashes are emerging with NATO while Turkey is warming up to Russia and Iran with regard to its interests in Syria.  In short, the Turkish economy is a mess and relations with the U.S. are near an all-time low. Still Turkey has one more rabbit to pull out of its hat. 

President Erdoğan has now declared his goal of abandoning the U.S. dollar in Turkey’s commerce with its trading partners.  Erdoğan sees a way to buy and sell with Russia and China in rubles or yuan. Turkey has also been stockpiling gold, which it can use to settle balance of payments deficits and to back up a new currency, if needed.  Pursuit of these non-dollar alternatives suggests it’s just a matter of time before Turkey closes its capital account and reneges on its dollar-denominated debt.  Standing alone, Turkey is not a huge part of the global trading and payments system. But, it could start a trend toward non-dollar transactions that other countries can follow.

The dollar is the most powerful weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The U.S. uses the dollar strategically to reward friends and punish enemies. The use of the dollar as a weapon is not limited to trade wars and currency wars, although the dollar is used tactically in those disputes. The dollar is much more powerful than that. The dollar can be used for regime change by creating hyperinflation, bank runs and domestic dissent in countries targeted by the U.S. The U.S. can depose the governments of its adversaries, or at least blunt their policies without firing a shot. The U.S. also uses the dollar to force its enemies into fronts, crude barter or the black market if they want to do business.

So you must think of the dollar in geopolitical terms, not just a unit of account. The dollar constitutes about 60% of global reserves, 80% of global payments and almost 100% of global oil transactions. Transacting on the world stage means transacting in dollars.

But importantly, the U.S. not only controls the dollar itself. It controls the dollar payments system itself. A dollar payment going from a bank in Shanghai to another bank in Sydney runs through one of these U.S.-controlled payments systems. In short, the dollar is the oxygen supply for world commerce and the U.S. can cut off your oxygen whenever it wants.

Meanwhile, U.S. economic sanctions are being applied like never before.  Current targets include North Korea, Syria, Cuba, Iran, Turkey, China, Russia, and Venezuela. Several other countries are under consideration for tariffs and sanctions or on a waiting list. These sanctions are highly effective. The Iranian economy almost imploded in 2013 under prior sanctions and is imploding against today under new sanctions imposed by President Trump. 

Yet, those policymakers in Washington imposing sanctions are ignoring the admonition, “Be careful what you wish for.” U.S. sanctions success is generating a backlash that could undermine the role of the dollar in the long-run.  For every action there is a reaction. America’s adversaries realize how vulnerable they are to dollar-based sanctions. In the short run, they have to grin and bear it. They’re fully invested in the dollar both in their reserves and in the desire of their largest companies like Gazprom (Russia) and Huawei (China) to become major global players.

But our adversaries and so-called allies are already envisioning a world where the dollar is not the major reserve and trade currency. In the longer run, Russia, China, Iran, Turkey and others are working flat-out to invent and implement nondollar transactional currencies and independent payments systems. This will not involve dead-end cryptocurrencies like bitcoin but entirely new utility tokens and cryptos. Imagine something like a putincoin and you’ll be on the right track.

China is pushing its trade counterparties to accept Chinese yuan as payment for goods and services. The yuan is a small part of global payments today (about 2%) but the yuan may get a boost as the U.S. sanctions on Iran kick in. China is Iran’s biggest customer for oil, and if U.S. sanctions prohibit dollar payments for Iranian oil, then Iran and China may have no choice but to transact in yuan.

The International Monetary Fund, IMF, has already announced efforts to put its world money, the special drawing right, SDR, on a distributed ledger. This would make the SDR a global cryptocurrency for settling balance of payments transactions among China, Russia and other IMF members, also without reliance on the dollar payments system.

Alongside the new money in cryptocurrencies, there is the oldest form of money, which is gold. The use of gold is the ideal way to avoid U.S. financial warfare. Gold is physical so it cannot be hacked. It is completely fungible (an element, atomic number 79) so it cannot be traced. Gold can be transported in sealed containers on airplanes so movements cannot be identified through wire transfer message traffic or satellite surveillance. There is good evidence that Iran currently pays for North Korean weapons technology with gold, and good reason to expect that future Chinese payments for Iranian oil will be made at least partly in gold.

Imagine a three-way trade in which North Korea sells weapons to Iran, Iran sells oil to China and China sells food to North Korea. All of these transactions can be recorded on a blockchain and netted out on a quarterly basis with the net settlement payment made in gold shipped to the party with the net balance due. That’s a glimpse of what a future nondollar payments system looks like.

Russia is the most active opponent of U.S. sanctions. Right now, Russia is being sanctioned with tariffs, account freezes, penalties and capital market bans because of its actions in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. This has had some negative impact on the Russian economy, but Russia is fighting back.  Russia has sold off most of its holdings of U.S. Treasury securities and vastly reduced its dollar-denominated reserve holdings. At the same time, Russia has tripled its gold reserves in the past ten years and now has more gold in its official reserves than China. 

In fact, Russia is the fifth largest gold holder of any nation after the U.S., Germany, France and Italy. Relative to the size of its economy, Russia has the most gold in the world. These gold holdings insulate Russia from dollar-based sanctions and protect Russia from dollar inflation.  Why would a country put 20% of its reserves into gold unless it expected gold to be a major part of the international monetary system in the future? It wouldn’t. Russia not only expects gold to be part of the system, it is in strong position to make that happen by working with China, Turkey and Iran in what I call the new “Axis of Gold.”

No one country can erase the dollar’s advantage by itself, but collectively these actors can build a non-dollar based payments system and non-dollar reserves that escape the reach of U.S. sanctions. This movement has started small but could gain momentum suddenly and unexpectedly.  The bottom line is that the weaponized dollar will soon be a victim of its own success. 

While the U.S. was bullying the world with dollars, the world was quietly preparing a new nondollar system. The U.S. wanted diplomatic and military clout and it got it with the dollar. But as the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for.”

I haven't posted in a couple of days, so I figured it's time to update you all as to how things are going.  First, I still haven't heard much from Patreon, aside from the answer to a couple of questions, so the status of that site is still in limbo.  I still hope it gets reinstated, but I've been working for the past few days on an alternative.  

Basically, I've been building my website, and it's almost "finished".  I'm sure that it'll still need some tweaking, but I plan to have the basic structure (and most of the content) completed by the end of the day.  And I'm shooting for a 9-15 launch date.  

For those of you who just visit to see my single-frame captions, nothing will change.  But for those who've been supporting me on Patreon, this site will simply cut out the middle-man and let you subscribe to my content directly.  I'll be accepting Paypal and most major credit cards (via Stripe), and I'm currently exploring a way to accept cryptocurrencies like bitcoin (though I'm pretty sure it isn't supported on Stripe).  

Anyway, I'll keep you all updated as to the launch status.  But in the meantime, back to work!

"This isn't the only time blockchain advocates have sought to play the Washington influence game. Half a decade ago, organizations such as the Bitcoin Foundation played a similar role. But it was a catchall organization — representing industry as well as individual consumers; acting as a think tank, lobbying group and standard-setting body, all in one.

Now, the cryptocurrency field is far more developed, with distinct sectors and interest groups, said Jerry Brito, executive director of the Coin Center, a Washington-based cryptocurrency think tank. To see the rise of a purpose-specific trade group is a sign of the industry's growing maturity, he added."

A timely *coin reality check
"The cryptocurrency bear market plumbed a fresh 10-month low on Monday as Bitcoin’s biggest rival tumbled and U.S. regulators suspended trading in two securities linked to digital assets.

Ether, the second-largest virtual currency, slumped 11 percent from its level at 5 p.m. New York time on Friday, according to Bloomberg composite pricing. Bitcoin declined 2.4 percent, while the market capitalization of digital assets tracked by CoinMarketCap.com shrank to about $197 billion -- down almost $640 billion from its January peak.

Cryptocurrencies have declined for five of the past six weeks amid concern that a broader adoption of digital assets will take longer than some had anticipated. That worry was underscored over the weekend after the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission temporarily suspended trading in two exchange-traded notes linked to cryptocurrencies and Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin told Bloomberg that the days of explosive growth in the blockchain industry have likely come and gone."

Bitcoin is the world’s first cryptocurrency and decentralized digital currency. The first bitcoin transaction occurred in early 2009 and has since grown worldwide. Ether is another cryptocurrency run on the Ethereum blockchain platform and has the second largest market share, despite being the newest of the three with its launch in July 2015.

          Post Status: WordPress and Blockchain      Cache   Translate Page      

WordPress is one of the driving forces and great success stories of the open web to date. As an open source platform, it’s become a dominant CMS used by 30% of the web to publish content — on websites large and small.

WordPress has grown up in an era of evolving challenges: ushering in web standards, adapting for publishing and viewing on all device sizes; building for accessibility by all; establishing its place in the era of expansive and centralized social media platforms; and more.

Today, we’re faced with a new generation of technologies coming down the pipe, ready to disrupt the current ecosystem. These technologies include blockchain, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, the internet of things, and more I’m sure. It’s the first of these that is the focus of this post and the following conversation.

I was approached by David Lockie of Pragmatic to discuss how WordPress and blockchain technology may fit together, and how they may not. David and I have both been interested in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space over the past couple of years, and have over time encountered a lot of projects that aim to disrupt or enhance various elements of the web: from DNS to CMS.

David gathered a group of people for an initial online, open, honest conversation about how WordPress could be impacted, disrupted or take advantage of distributed ledger and blockchain technologies.

Examples include:

  • Blockchain platforms impacting people’s choice to use WordPress e.g. Steemit
  • Blockchain projects impacting people already using WordPress e.g. Basic Attention Token or Po.et, Civil
  • Cryptocurrencies’ impact on eCommerce and the wider ecosystem, e.g. the Coinbase Commerce merchant gateway
  • What we can learn from blockchain projects’ governance systems and lessons learned
  • Ideas for improving security, integrations, etc
  • Various identity-based projects
  • New environments which may be used to run WordPress, such as decentralized web technologies e.g. Substratum  or MaidSafe.
  • Impact on the talent pool for WordPress professionals
  • General threats and opportunities
  • Discussion of anything new, interesting and relevant in the blockchain/cryptocurrency space
  • All of the above as it relates to open source and the web generally, outside of WordPress

Our aim for the initial conversation, as well as future conversations is not to advocate specifically for any existing project or to necessarily endorse blockchain as appropriate for WordPress to somehow integrate in any way. It’s to explore what’s out there now, how it could impact WordPress today and in the future, and down the road perhaps how WordPress take advantage of potential opportunities. We are approaching this like a discovery phase — not to get overly excited, but to be informed. And we welcome participants in this conversation.

This first conversation included the following participants:

I attempted to reiterate in the call, but I believe it’s important to address this topic with a skeptic’s hat on. By no means do any of us think that it’s a great idea to just go head first in trying to integrate blockchain technology to WordPress. The jury is still very much out in terms of where, how, and even if blockchain brings significant advantages to web applications.

If you are interested in future discussions, we welcome you! There is currently a channel (#blockchain) in Post Status Slack where people can discuss, and we’ll also announce future video-conference discussions. We may make a more independent place to discuss, blog, etc, in the future depending on how these early conversations go.

We don’t know exactly where this conversation will go. It may fizzle out, or could evolve into a much broader community effort. The first thing to do, if you are interested to continue this conversation, is just follow along with future conversations, which will be posted here.

          Mt. Gox Opens Rehabilitation Filing System to Corporate Clients      Cache   Translate Page      
Creditors of Defunct Cryptocurrency Exchange Mt. Gox Can Now File Claims

Corporate customers tangled up in the aftermath of Mt. Gox’s historic hack can finally file for reparations.

The now-defunct Japanese bitcoin exchange opened up its claim filing system to corporate users this Wednesday, September 12, 2018. Previously, the system was open only to non-corporate individuals as of August 23, 2018, but with today’s announcement, any entity that lost funds to the exchange can now file for rehabilitation claims.

Creditors have until October 22, 2018, to file for rehabilitation, after which point they will be disenfranchised.

Established by Stellar co-founder Jed McCaleb but later acquired by Mark Karpelès, Mt. Gox collapsed in February of 2014 after an alleged hack. In the ensuing fallout, the exchange, which hosted the vast majority of the world’s cryptocurrency trading, was rendered illiquid, as malicious actors absconded with some 850,000 BTC, worth roughly $450 million at the time. The hack was the most devastating in industry history until Coincheck, another Japanese exchange, lost a staggering $530 million in January of 2018.

Given its magnitude, the aftermath of Mt. Gox’s collapse has hung on to the space’s community like an albatross. Even this year, community members theorized that market slumps were caused by Mt. Gox’s legal trustee, Tokyo-based attorney Nobuaki Kobayashi, selling bitcoin from the exchange’s estate to reimburse creditors. Kobayashi, who has overseen the civil rehabilitation process and who authored today’s statement, has since ended the sell-offs, offering creditors restitution in bitcoin and bitcoin cash under an updated rehabilitation plan, instead.

Originally filing for bankruptcy in 2014, the exchange’s case was stayed after a Tokyo District Court approved a petition to have it begin the civil rehabilitation process in June of 2018. In opening corporations to the claims filing process, the exchange is one step closer to putting its debts to rest after courts first permitted Mt. Gox users to file bankruptcy claims in April of 2015.

          World Economic Forum and the Chinese Cryptocurrency Space      Cache   Translate Page      
Let's Talk Bitcoin

On the latest episode of The Bitcoin Game, host Rob Mitchell explains the recent trip he took to the World Economic Forum. Based in Davos, Switzerland, this international conference featured a wide number of economic experts and panelists within the international financial industry.

Sitting on one such panel titled “The Crypto Asset Bubble,” Jennifer Zhu Scott, a founding partner at Radian, later came on this week’s episode of The Bitcoin Game to discuss the trajectory of the future cryptocurrency industry worldwide, as well as her opinions on the space in her home country of China.

Becoming interested in cryptocurrency at a very early stage, Scott purchase bitcoins less from a fervent belief that it would gain value than from a desire to hold a piece of the history of decentralized technology.

As an early adopter who hails from Western China, Scott explains that she became personally invested in cryptocurrency for the fact that it is an untouchable way to store value. In particular, this is important to Scott because her family experienced the brunt of what can happen to people fully reliant on centralized monetary systems — her family lost much of their wealth and property after the Nationalists’ 1949 defeat in the Chinese Civil War and the rise of Mao Zedong.

Bringing up some of the conversations previously addressed at the World Economic Forum, Scott went on to discuss the desire for small, wealthier nations like Switzerland and Oman to become crypto-friendly hubs and the Chinese government’s motivations to crack down on decentralized platforms.

Additionally, Scott and Mitchell cover a number of other topics, including tidbits like her involvement in the hit show Silicon Valley as a consultant for cryptocurrency-related episodes. For the entire episode and others from The Bitcoin Game, visit the Let’s Talk Bitcoin Network.

          Federal Judge Applies Long-Established Securities Law to ICOs      Cache   Translate Page      
Miami Judge Rules Bitcoin Is Not Money; Dismisses Money Laundering, Transmitting Charges

Does a decades-old securities law apply to an initial coin offering (ICO)? In a case that represents the first time securities laws have been applied to cryptocurrencies, a district judge says it may.

On September 11, 2018, in a district courthouse in Brooklyn, New York, Judge Raymond Dearie ruled that two ICOs were securities, based on established laws that govern the financial instruments. His decision does not imply that all ICOs are securities, but that simply calling a token a “currency” does not preclude it from being classified as a security.  

Turning back a few pages, in October 2017, businessman Maksim Zaslavskiy was accused of misleading investors in two separate ICOs. He raised about $300,000 in a cryptocurrency called REcoin, which he claimed was backed by real estate, and a cryptocurrency called Diamond, which he claimed was backed by diamonds. In truth, no real estate nor diamonds backed either of the coins, and Zaslavskiy was charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy and two counts of securities fraud — charges that carry up to five years in jail and a fine.

Zaslavskiy moved to have the charges dismissed. He argued that his ICOs were not securities, but “the exchange of one currency for another,” and that securities laws are too “unconstitutionally vague” to be applied to his case. 

Cornell law professor Robert Hockett calls the insistence that the laws are vague a “Hail Mary.” “It is a fallback argument,” he told Bitcoin Magazine. “At first the defendant says the law is clear in that it clearly does not apply, but then he effectively says, ‘I have no way of knowing what I can do because the law is unclear.’”

Judge Dearie found the laws clear enough. He pointed out that laws are meant to be interpreted flexibly. He then went on to determine that the two ICOs in question were “investment contracts” by applying the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, one of the most important pieces of legislation governing securities, and the Howey Test, a checklist regulators use to determine if an asset is a security.

Specifically, the Howey Test determines that a transaction represents an investment contract if "a person invests his money in a common enterprise and is led to expect profits solely from the efforts of the promoter or a third party." According to case documents, Judge Dearie found that REcoin and Diamond investors “undoubtedly expected to receive profits in their investments.”

In his arguments, Judge Dearie also referenced the DAO Report, an investigative report issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in July 2017 claiming that tokens sold on an Ethereum-based investment fund were securities, and public statements made by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton on cryptocurrencies and ICOs in December 2017. At that time, Clayton noted that “simply calling something a ‘currency’ or a currency-based product does not mean that it is not a security.”

“Combined with statements the SEC chairman made previously, yesterday’s decision lends further credence to what many of us believe, which is that offered coins will count as investment contracts and hence securities,” said Hockett. “The SEC has made noises that ICOs were securities, but up until now, there has been no official legal ruling declaring they were.”

The case still has to go to trial and, ultimately, it will be up to a jury to decide whether the ICO in question was a security. Still, Hockett said: “I really doubt an appellate court will overturn the district court’s ruling.”  

ICOs have been a major source of controversy in the crypto space. So far, about $20 billion has been raised in ICOs, most of that in the last two years. In a talk at MIT in April 2018, Gary Gensler, former chairman of the Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), another regulatory body that has weighed in on ICOs, noted “significant noncompliance” with securities laws in the cryptocurrency space. “Many initial coin offerings, probably well over a thousand, many crypto exchanges, probably 100 to 200, are basically operating outside of U.S. law,” he said.

          Biking Across America, Crypto Cyclists Look to Raise $1 Million for Charity      Cache   Translate Page      
Tour de Crypto

Crypto, charity and cycling. It’s an unlikely triad, but two fitness enthusiasts-turned-crypto philanthropists believe that, taken in combination, the three can drive positive change.

Taking a cross-country cycling trip around the U.S., Tour de Crypto riders Jason Berlin and Jovel Velasquez want to raise $1 million in cryptocurrencies and USD for the Houston Area Women’s Center (HAWC), a non-profit organization with the mandate to “[end] domestic and sexual violence for all.” Through its advocacy, counselling, education, shelters and support services, HAWC works to help survivors build safe and healthy lives.

If Berlin and Velasquez meet their goal, the money will be enough to fund half a year of services to HAWC’s 120-bed secure shelter. To ensure transparency, donors can verify that the wallet addresses listed on Tour de Crypto’s website and HAWC’s own are the same, and “100% of the donations will go directly to HAWC via wallets maintained and controlled by HAWC,” Tour de Crypto’s donation page states.

The tour will kick off on Friday, September 14, 2018, in the Hamptons, New York, ending on Friday, November 9, 2018, in Huntington Beach, California, and the entire trip will also be recorded with videographers and an audio crew along the way. Along the route, Berlin and Velasquez will be stopping in Houston to visit the headquarters of HAWC.

At the time of publication, the project is accepting donations in bitcoin, ether, litecoin, monero, digibyte, reddcoin, electra, paccoin and phore. The Electra community was the first to sign up, according to Blake Rizzo, head of charity affairs for Tour de Crypto. At last count, he said that over 7 million electra (~$4,340) had been donated to HAWC.

Speaking to Bitcoin Magazine, Rizzo explained that he was approached by Berlin with the idea of the tour. Rizzo said that Berlin came up with the concept, a play on the Tour de France, as a way to do something that raises awareness for cryptocurrency donations to charity.

“He also had a personal goal to ride a bike across the United States, so he decided to combine the two,” Rizzo added.

With a background in law as a commercial litigation attorney, Berlin originally approached Rizzo to draft documents for the tour. However, the more Rizzo got involved, the more opportunity he saw, so he took on a more active role to help increase awareness of the riders’ mission and how they hope to accomplish it.

When Berlin began speaking to Rizzo about potential charities, Rizzo immediately suggested HAWC, which has a four-star rating on Charity Navigator. It wasn’t long before Berlin decided to make the sexual assault survivor center the main focus on the first tour, which is expected to be the first of many.

“The goal is to do this every year and not only have a charity that is the main focus, but also ask other communities and coins to get involved and do one of two things,” said Rizzo. “They can have me set up HAWC with their particular wallet so their community can donate or [they can] go out and get another charitable organization accept their coin, so we can add them to the list and promote different charities along the way.”

In a way, the first tour will be a trial run to see how crypto communities can come together to benefit charitable organizations.

Beyond raising money for HAWC, the tour will be a challenge for its two riders. According to Rizzo, Berlin and Velasquez are not your typical Lycra-clad cyclists, but that’s not to say they haven’t put the work in prior to the start of the trip. During the interview, Rizzo told me that the pair had just completed a 130-mile training trip, and the two are riding each day to condition themselves and prep their legs for the roughly 4,000 mile journey.

When they’re not riding, Berlin is talking to various exchanges and coin operators who are interested in getting involved on the tour, either as sponsors or participating coins. So far, Ronnie Moas, founder of Standpoint Research and World Crypto Con, is a leading sponsor. World Crypto Con’s website states that it will donate 5 percent of all ticket sales to HAWC.

Moas was quick to join the effort. When raising awareness for Tour de Crypto, Rizzo came across a tweet from Moas regarding World Crypto Con, so he reached out to talk to him about the tour’s charitable mission.

“Within minutes he responded,” added Rizzo. “He had checked out our Twitter page and our mission and basically said ‘I’m in, call me or send me your number,’ and just like that I was on the phone with him for an hour and a half going through everything. He agreed right there to be our lead sponsor.”

Bitcoin bull Moas is a familiar face within the crypto space, well known for his own forays into crypto philanthropy. One of his projects, the five-star rated charity Food for the Poor, has raised more than $400,000 to date. Between his experience and the advisory role he can play for the tour, Rizzo believes he makes a prime addition to the Tour de Crypto team.

Speaking to Bitcoin Magazine, Moas said that, when he heard about the cause, it struck a nerve with him because he had thought about walking from New York to California to raise money for charity a few years ago.

“I have visited more than 70 countries around the world and nearly 40 of the 50 states in this country, so I have seen a lot of people living in horrible conditions during my travels around,” he said. “I was moved by this, and it has almost become an obsession of mine to help people that will never live one day of their lives the way you and I live every day of our lives.”

During the charity ride, the riders will aim to cover around 100 miles a day, in addition to working on videos to upload to their social media. Even though the first charity ride will take place in a matter of days, Rizzo explained that they are already looking forward to additional tours. They’ve already had interested parties reach out asking if they will do another event overseas.

“We really want to make this an annual event and even incorporate cycle races, so we are certainly open to all options and possibilities,” said Rizzo.

At the moment, though, the tour’s main goal is to continue spreading the word on crypto’s place at the charitable table.

“If a lot of people find out about what Jason and Jovel are doing, they may be able to move the needle,” added Moas.

Jamie Dimon backtracks after claiming he 'could beat Trump' in an election

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon reversed course after taking aim at President Donald Trump during a JPMorgan event on Wednesday.

"I think I could beat Trump," Dimon said.

"Because I'm as tough as he is, I'm smarter than he is," he continued. "I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn't work with me. I'd fight right back."

But Dimon, a lifelong Democrat, also added that he could not win an election due to the "liberal side" of the Democratic Party.

Upstart exchange IEX snags its first listing from Nasdaq

IEX, the startup stock exchange made famous in Michael Lewis' book "Flash Boys," has snagged a listing from one of its larger rivals.

The New York firm, which gained stock-exchange approval in 2016, announced Wednesday that electronic brokerage Interactive Brokers will switch its listing venue from Nasdaq to IEX in October.

IEX, which was founded by Brad Katsuyama in 2012, is known for its speed-bump stock-trading model that aims to put the world's fastest trading firms on a level playing field with investors.

The cryptocurrency Ethereum crashed by over 8% on Wednesday, extending a slump for the asset and the wider market.

Ethereum was down 8.6% to $169.12 just after 9:30 a.m. GMT (4:30 a.m. ET), a level not seen since May 2017, when Ethereum was enjoying its first price surge of the year.

The cryptocurrency is down almost 30% over the past seven days and has mirrored a wider slump in the cryptocurrency market over the past two weeks.

Seventy-six percent of the 3,162 summer analysts and associates who interned at Goldman worldwide this summer responded to the questionnaire. Goldman published the results on Wednesday.

One of the more frivolous results indicated that the interns were willing to pay $6 on average for avocado toast, the popular millennial brunch dish.

Obama was the most popular choice as a role model, followed by Sheryl Sandberg, Nelson Mandela, and Steve Jobs.

Five years after launching ‘Dogecoin’ as a gag, creator Jackson Palmer, who currently works as Group Product Manager, Creative Cloud Engagement Platform at Adobe, continues to convey the ridiculousness of it all.

The cryptocurrency has already surpassed former high-flyer Bitcoin to become one of the stronger digital tokens available. It currently boasts a US$740 million market cap and regular daily trading capacity worth millions of dollars.

The quizzical-looking Shiba Inu of ‘Doge’ meme fame inspired its amusing name and logo, which was designed by Christine Ricks.

At present, ‘Dogecoin’ stands as the 17th-largest cryptocurrency based on market value, though Palmer seems to remain largely unimpressed by this feat.

I’m not sure, but plenty of people have gone “all-in” on cryptocurrencies and argue that blockchain technologies will make the same impact as the Internet and smartphones.

I’m not quite there - I think it’s promising, and I’ve done a bit of "investing" (read: speculating) in the space, but I’m not sure that the technology as it currently exists will change the world.

But I like to challenge my beliefs, so I recently spoke with a reader who left his investment banking job and traded IPOs for ICOs:

Over the last 12 hours, cryptocurrency wallet apps Bitcoin Wallet (managed by Bitcoin.com), CoPay, and BitPay have been removed. The curious part is that none of these are cryptocurrency mining apps (nor do they advertise such features). Google has remain tight-lipped about what triggered the removal.

          Smart contracts in healthcare      Cache   Translate Page      
For researchers, funding plays an important role in accomplishing their work. In the healthcare industry, many relevant topics do not get sufficient funding because they are not profitable for pharmaceutical laboratories. Blockchain, which is based on distributed ledger technology, and "smart contracts" are seen as possible solutions to this funding problem."Blockchain will enable the crowdfunding of health-related research, thereby decoupling funding from business interest and linking it to social needs," says Simon Janin, software engineer and co-founder, chainSolutions GmbH, Zrich, Switzerland. A smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Funds that are raised for a research project, for example, can be held in a smart contract which specifies the rules on how the money can be spent. The smart contract is self-enforcing and each party to this contract knows how the contract will behave, thus enabling higher trust levels, Janin explains.Blockchain also offers a way of decentralising information without compromising integrity and security. A key aspect of decentralisation is the use of reputation systems, which can be implemented on blockchains in a transparent way. Blockchain is a digital ledger in which transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency ("token") are recorded chronologically and publicly. "One can imagine a marketplace for medical research where researchers would be awarded reputation, in the form of a token, proportionally to the quality of their research," says Janin. "This can naturally be extended to reputation-based diagnostics; a patient answers targeted questions and provides his medical data, then a pool of trusted doctors provide independent diagnostics and collegially agree on a final diagnostic."

          FINRA takes down an unregistered cryptocurrency security      Cache   Translate Page      

FINRA, the non-profit organization that tasks itself with policing the securities industry, is charging Timothy Tilton Ayre of Agawam, Massachusetts with fraud and unlawful distribution of unregistered cryptocurrency securities.

Ayre claimed that users could buy equity in his company, Rocky Mountain Ayre, Inc., buy purchasing HempCoin, a cryptocurrency. From the release :

In the complaint, FINRA alleges that, from January 2013 through October 2016, Ayre attempted to lure public investment in his worthless public company, Rocky Mountain Ayre, Inc. (RMTN) by issuing and selling HempCoin which he publicized as “the first minable coin backed by marketable securities” and by making fraudulent, positive statements about RMTN’s business and finances. RMTN was quoted on the Pink Market of OTC Markets Group and traded over the counter. According to the complaint, FINRA also alleges that in June 2015, Ayre bought the rights to HempCoin and repackaged it as a security backed by RMTN common stock. Ayre marketed HempCoin as “the world’s first currency to represent equity ownership” in a publicly traded company and promised investors that each coin was equivalent to 0.10 shares of RMTN common stock. Investors mined more than 81 million HempCoin securities through late 2017 and bought and sold the security on two cryptocurrency exchanges. FINRA charges Ayre with the unlawful distribution of an unregistered security because he never registered HempCoin and no exemption to registration applied.

Because FINRA is not a government body its charges are rarely very onerous but, in the case of brokerage fraud, Ayre could face further scrutiny of he tries to sell securities in the future. The company, Rocky Mountain Ayre, seems to be associated with a restaurant and medical marijuana sales operation, although it is unclear what the company actually does. Hempcoin seems to be trading at 2 cents currently and has very limited trading volume.

Trading recommendations:

According to the H1 time - frame, I found that price broke the supply trendline in the background and the Ichimoku cloud, which is a sign that buyers are in control. I also found the rising upward trendline and successful rejection of the Tenkan-sen (yellow line), which is another sign of strenght. On the H4 time – frame, I found a fresh cross of Tenkan sen – Kijun sen, which is another positive sign for a further upward movement. Watch for buying opportunities. The upward target is set at the price of $6.696.

Support 1 – $6.384 (yellow line)

Support 2 - $6.309 (purple line)

Objective target - $6.696 (Fibonacci expansion 161.8%)

          Diamond Company Reger Diamond Started RDS Token Sales      Cache   Translate Page      

Prague, Czech Republic -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/12/2018 -- The company announced the idea of releasing its own coin in April. The main goal of ICO - is to raise funds to develop the diamond business of the company Reger Diamond, which has been successfully developing in the last 10 years. ICO uniqueness - is that each coin is secured by the company real assets.

Today the diamond business is enough conservative and closed, all transactions in it pass in a narrow circle of persons, and prices are formed not by laws of the market, but by personal agreements. However, business has a number of advantages, such as financial sustainability, low risk and long-term dividend guarantee. But still, the high threshold of entry into the business, low profitability due to conservative approach and closeness do not give a clear perspective for public investors.

In order to slightly open this business to investors, the company owners decided to create ICO, which will combine the diamond business and cryptocurrency business having completely opposite advantages and disadvantages. Crypto-and blockchain technologies will allow investors to reduce the threshold of entry into the diamond business and get profit from it being in any part of our planet. It is a completely new investment product with the market value supported by real assets, and the company activity is based on the principles of openness and transparency. Blockchain technologies will open the diamond business with new opportunities for access to public financial resources, and for crypto-investors significantly reduce the risks of exchange volatility and possible investment losses, as well as stabilize capital in the long-term perspective.

According to the company business plan and White paper of ICO Project, at the first stage it is planned to attract 21.5 million dollars, which will be fully focused on production activities for manufacture of diamonds and jewellery. In 3 years the planned profit will make more than 637 million dollars.

The total issue of ICO will make 60 million RDS Tokens. But the public sales will be only 21.5 million coins at the par value of 1 USD. The remaining coins will be reserved. At the presale stage 1 000 000 Reger Diamond Security Token was realized, which was a good start of the project. Presale was finished in the third week, ahead of the business plan.

With each investor, the company plans to conclude a smart-contract, according to which in a year there is to be a reward for participation in the project in the amount of 20%, which is a guaranteed profit!

Another guarantee of the company for the investor will be the opportunity at any time to sell coins at the nominal value of 1 USD, as each coin is supported by the company real assets. This will insure RDS Token at the time of entering the cryptocurrency exchange from the rate fall below 1 USD, and the investor would always remain in the positive.

Start investing in the diamond business today on the website http://www.regerdiamond.com.

Дорогие друзья и подписчики.
Если Вам нравится то что я делаю на своем канале и приносит вам пользу. Прошу оказать мне помощь в сборе средств На операцию по пересадке почки для меня. Дело в том что у меня почки работают всего на 3% и не выводят все шлаки и жидкость. Поэтому я нахожусь на гемодиализе (процедура очистки крови очень тяжелая) и мечтаю сделать пересадку почки. Что бы жизнь стала более полноценной. Операция стоит дорого поэтому сам я не потяну собрать такие деньги. Прошу оказать поддержку в сборе средств. Ориентировочная сумма на 2016 год пересадка трупной почки 20 000 долларов (это если до меня очередь дойдет). А если делать сразу без долгой очереди в Белоруссии стоит 70 000 долларов.

          280 mil roteadores foram invadidos para minerar criptomoeda, a maioria no Brasil      Cache   Translate Page      

Você sabe o que é Criptojacking? É uma tática que rouba, sorrateiramente, o domínio sobre um computador para minerar criptomoedas na máquina. A estratégia vem sendo bastante usada pelos invasores de diversas maneiras e, nos últimos dias, pesquisadores descobriram que 3.700 roteadores estavam executando silenciosamente programas maliciosos de criptografia. O número de dispositivos comprometidos detectados é de mais de 280.000, sendo a maioria localizada no Brasil.

Para efeito de comparação, o aumento é de 80.000 em pouco mais de 30 dias. O ataque maciço começou no início de agosto, quando cibercriminosos conseguiram comprometer mais de 200 mil roteadores MicroTik, explorando suas vulnerabilidades, até então não descobertas.

Os roteadores foram injetados com o CoinHive, um código que permite que os navegadores minerem criptomoedas. Até então, estima-se que mais de US$ 250.000 em moedas virtuais são gerados por esse botnet todos os meses. Então, caso tenha um roteador da MicroTik em casa, vale atualiza-lo imediatamente com o patch oficial mais recente disponível no site da fabricante.

Além do CoinHive, há ainda um perigoso cavalo de Tróia conhecido como Android Banker. Ele foi descoberto em janeiro deste ano e é direcionado a quase 200 aplicativos bancários.

          David Rosenthal: Blockchain Solves Preservation!      Cache   Translate Page      
We're in a period when blockchain or "Distributed Ledger Technology" is the Solution to Everything™, so it is inevitable that it will be proposed as the solution to the problems of digital preservation. John Collomosse et al's abstract for ARCHANGEL: Trusted Archives of Digital Public Documents states:
We present ARCHANGEL; a de-centralised platform for ensuring the long-term integrity of digital documents stored within public archives. Document integrity is fundamental to public trust in archives. Yet currently that trust is built upon institutional reputation --- trust at face value in a centralised authority, like a national government archive or University. ARCHANGEL proposes a shift to a technological underscoring of that trust, using distributed ledger technology (DLT) to cryptographically guarantee the provenance, immutability and so the integrity of archived documents. We describe the ARCHANGEL architecture, and report on a prototype of that architecture build over the Ethereum infrastructure. We report early evaluation and feedback of ARCHANGEL from stakeholders in the research data archives space.
This is a wonderful example of the way people blithely assume that the claimed properties of blockchain systems are actually delivered in the real world. Below the fold I ask whether Collomosse et al have applied appropriate skepticism to blockchain's claims, and whether they have considered the sustainability of their proposal.

Collomosse et al start by claiming:
ARCHANGEL breaks new ground by proposing the use of a blockchain payload to record digital signatures (content evidence) derived from either scanned physical, or born-digital, document to ensure their integrity over decade- or century-long timespans.
Seven years ago I wrote Do Digital Signatures Assure Long-Term Integrity? in response to Duane Dunston's advocacy of the use of digital signatures to assure the integrity of preserved digital documents. After reviewing the issues I concluded:
Basing the long-term integrity of digital documents on digital signatures, and thus on the ability to keep secrets for the long term is unwise. Fortunately, it is not necessary. There are at least two different approaches to doing so that do not depend on long-term secrets:
  • The technique of entangling hashes, patented by Stuart Haber and others, and implemented in the ACE system, provides tamper-evident storage without secrets. It can detect but not recover from tampering using a minimum of tamper-proof storage. There are practical difficulties in implementing it securely enough, but these are much less significant than those involved in long-term use of digital signatures.
  • The protocol underlying the LOCKSS system provides tamper-resistant storage against a powerful adversary without long-term secrets. It does use short-term secrets, whose life is a day or less, but it limits the damage caused if even these leak.
So they are proposing to use blockchain technology to solve a problem for which a commercial centralized solution has been available for twenty-four years, and an open-source academic solution for eleven years (both based on patents issued twenty-six years ago), and a decentralized solution available for fifteen years which has been in economically sustainable production use for twelve years. None of this work is cited.

The authors do not establish that there is significant unmet demand for services of these kinds, presumably because they are unaware that such services have existed for more than a decade. ARCHANGEL does not even "break new ground" in proposing the use of blockchain technology for this purpose. Victoria Lemieux's 2016 paper Trusting records: is Blockchain technology the answer? concluded:
Blockchain technology can be used to address issues associated with information integrity in the present and near term, assuming proper security architecture and infrastructure management controls. It does not, however, guarantee reliability of information in the first place, and would have several limitations as a long-term solution for maintaining trustworthy digital records.
It is important to observe that:
ARCHANGEL utilises a permissioned blockchain model, in which operators or automatic processes authorised to add content to the AMI commit blocks into the chain encoding content evidence.
They go on to suggest that their permissioned blockchain use proof-of-work to establish consensus:
In our architecture we propose two modes of consensus checking, both predicated upon a permissioned DLT model:
  1. The Blockchain is maintained via proof of work across a private set of nodes, which are maintained collectively by multiple AMIs each with independent governance structure e. g. national archives of different nation states. As such an unprecedented level of collusion would be required to corrupt the Blockchain.
  2. The Blockchain is maintained via proof of work across a public Blockchain maintained globally. In such case a program embedded within the Blockchain (a ’smart contract’) with sole permission to write to the Blockchain is invoked in order to the append data. Access to the smart contract end-point is granted via secret key. In this case corruption would require more than half of the public DLT infrastructure miners to collude, which is again unlikely e. g. on the Ethereum main network.
There are a number of problems here. The first is that permissioned blockchains do not need proof of work to maintain consensus; the canonical permissioned blockchain, IBM's Hyperledger, uses Byzantine Fault Tolerance protocols and thereby avoids the appalling and obviously unsustainable energy use of current proof of work blockchains (the top 5 cryptocurrencies are estimated to use as much energy as The Netherlands). Option 1 could be implemented using Hyperledger far more easily and efficiently than by using proof of work.

The second is that the security of blockchains assumes that a large number of nodes act independently. It has been known for more than four years that this is not the case in public blockchains such as Ethereum, which are dominated by a small number of large "mining pools":
in Ethereum — 3 pools control more than 60% of the hashrate, and 6 pools will get you over 85%.
For major cryptocurrencies these pools contain large numbers of nodes, which were attracted by the rapidly rising "price" of the coin. Since the beginning of this year, however:
MVIS CryptoCompare Digital Assets 10 Index extended its collapse from a January high to 80 percent. ... Wednesday’s losses were led by Ether, the second-largest virtual currency. It fell 6 percent to $171.15 at 7:50 a.m. in New York, extending this month’s retreat to 40 percent.
This makes mining uneconomic for most miners, as does utilities raising electricity prices for miners, so the networks will lose nodes. Committing digital preservation for the long term to infrastructure as volatile as cryptocurrencies is not a route to sustainability.

British Library budget
Equally, a private blockchain operated by memory institutions faces great difficulty in maintaining adequate participation. These institutions are under severe budget pressure and competition for skilled staff. They are being forced to outsource their IT operations to "the cloud", and are unlikely to take on new or maintain existing in-house tasks. Byzantine Fault Tolerance is a better approach to maintaining consensus than proof of work in networks with a small number of nodes, even ignoring its wastefulness.

Third, Collomosse et al pay scant attention to the fact that digital preservation is primarily an economic problem. A sustainable digital preservation technology requires a viable business model:
We might also explore ... new business models to encourage sustainability. For example, the maintenance of the DLT (in terms of computational effort for mining) might be facilitated by users who seek document verification ’paying’ for that service via contribution of mining effort to maintain the DLT.
The whole point of archives and memory institutions is that they hold materials that are very rarely accessed. Thus the idea of sustaining them economically by charging for access can never work. Not to mention that the idea that individual scholars wanting to verify a document would "pay" by running a network node fails the laugh test.

Fourth, the authors uncritically accept blockchain's marketing hype that the only security threat is the unlikely one of collusion among the independent nodes:
The security of a blockchain is afforded by the immutability of data with the blocks, delivered by the compounding effect of each new block being hashed to include the hashes of previous blocks. Thus as content is committed into the blockchain, the security of the content is reinforced.
There are a number of issues with this:
  • The verifiability "of a blockchain is afforded by the immutability of data with the blocks". The security of the blockchain is afforded by the large number of replicas of the blocks at the large number of nodes.
  • The immutability of the blocks depends on the security of the hash algorithm in use. This is not absolute; "over decade- or century-long timespans" it degrades as happened for example to SHA-1.
  • Their system uses "smart contracts", which in practice are "immutable in name only".
  • Because the security of the blockchain depends upon the entire chain being replicated at each of the large number of nodes, successful blockchain systems suffer scaling problems, consuming large amounts of storage.
  • Unlike the decentralized LOCKSS system, ARCHANGEL and systems such as ACE do not contain "the content", merely hashes of "the content" which can be used for verification only if "the content" itself has survived through some other mechanism.
To do Collomosse et al justice, they do not claim to solve the whole problem of digital preservation, just that:
Blockchain offers a shield which archives can use to defend the records as authentic. ... It was also noted that acceptance of content evidence might eventually become similar to acceptance of DNA evidence in court, but that establishing that level of confidence would require strong public engaged to explain Blockchain in an accessible manner particularly explaining why one could trust the cryptographic assurances inherent in a DLT solution.
But, to the extent that blockchains and cryptocurrencies are perceived by the public as a single technology, and cryptocurrencies perceived as rancid with theft, fraud and manipulation, this may be difficult.

Sustainability is job #1 for archives. There's no point in setting up an archiving system and filling it with content only to have it fail after a decade or so. Sustainability has to be designed into both the technology and the organization into which it is embedded from the start if the contents are to survive the wide range of threats to which archived data is subject. Layering it on afterwards isn't going to be effective.

Basing the architecture of a preservation system on economically and environmentally unsustainable proof of work blockchains, and failing to identify any sustainable business model to support them isn't realistic.

          Top 5 Changes Coming to Cardano in Version 1.4      Cache   Translate Page      

All cryptocurrency ecosystems need to keep evolving over time. Remaining competitive and innovative are two key requirements. For Cardano, its updated roadmap will introduce some interesting changes. The following announced improvements are ranked by ascending benefits for the ecosystem as a whole.

#5 Daedelus Comes to linux

Over the past few weeks, the Cardano community has tried to get its hands on Daedelus for Linux. Although a public beta version exists for some time now, the community wanted full access to this popular Cardano wallet solution.That wish will finally be granted in the next major Cardano upgrade. A positive development for the Linux side of the community.

#4 Shelley Testnet

In the cryptocurrency world, testnets are an integral part of future developments. As Cardano prepares to move to a decentralized network, a new testnet will be implemented. Shelley will allow users to experiment with the new features coming to Cardano and provide feedback to developers. It will also help in ironing out any remaining bugs or potential issues. Decentralizing Cardano will introduce many changes, including stake pools and delegation of stake.

#3 Cardano Testnet

For those who want proper access to Cardano without using the main blockchain, a test environment of this ecosystem will be made publicly available. It is an alternative blockchain running code which is slightly behind the up-to-date iteration of the production code base. For developers, community members, and trading platforms, this testnet can be of great value. This testnet offers the exact same functionality as the live blockchain.

#2 Cardano Rust

Most developers have heard of Rust , a popular programming language. It is a lot easier to get acquainted with and is often touted as a “lightweight” programming language. It simplifies development for web and mobile significantly. Cardano’s Rust project is an open source sandbox for developers to build and integrate new products and services alike. For the ecosystem, the Rust project can lead to many great innovations over time.

#1 Improving Block Storage

Storing network blocks is always a bit problematic in the cryptocurrency world. Cardano is no different in this regard, albeit some major changes will be introduced soon. The current objective is to reduce the space needed to store the full Cardano blockchain. This will be achieved by using a single file to store each epoch instead of one file per block. As such, the information will be “condensed” to just 200 files, instead of 1.5 million.

Such a reduction in files needed streamlines the process as a whole. Fewer files required means using less hard drive space. As such, users will benefit from faster chain synchronization and overall performance increases. This method also seemingly paves the way for using cheaper devices with less storage capacity to store the Cardano blockchain on. A very promising development for the community as a whole.

          Spare a Thought for Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      

CircleID CircleID: Please spare a thought for Venezuela. This, the 33rd largest country in the world and with about 34 million people, the largest proven reserves of oil, the cheapest price of gasoline in the world, and was in 1950 richer than Germany, has fallen on times so hard in this once Latin America's richest country that 75% of the population lost an average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) in weight in one year because of food scarcity. And you might ask: "Why should I care?"

Venezuela is located on the northern coast of South America and shares land borders with Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, as well as Trinidad and Tobago. Officially called the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the country was colonized by Spain in 1522 but gained full independence about 300 years later and 188 years ago, in 1830. Venezuela is a charter member of many important international organizations, including the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS), Mercosur (the South American trade bloc), and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), to name a few.

Venezuela is the 10th largest exporter of oil in the world, and its economy is largely based on the petroleum sector, which accounted for over 50% of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country in 2015. Thanks to a huge government subsidy program, Venezuela has the cheapest gasoline in the world, costing $0.11 per gallon ($0.03 per litre) in 2014, even after a 6,200% increase!

Give Me Two!

Venezuela's history, although rocky, has had its glorious moments, including periods of political plurality, as well as oil-fueled economic booms that attracted immigrants from near and far (including Europe) into the country. Venezuela has also had dark moments of political turmoil, dictatorships, and economic gloom, because of various domestic and external factors.

Venezuela enjoyed both a relatively stable democracy, and significant economic growth between 1958 and the early 1980s. During this period, politics was dominated by two parties, and government revenues more than doubled after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war resulted in a huge rise in oil prices. Although the boom would soon turn to burst, it lasted long enough for Venezuelans to become known for the phrase "Ta barato, dame dos” ("It's cheap, give me two") as they bought up relatively cheap goods in their travels abroad.

In the early 1980s, the global oil glut brought down crude oil prices, and along with it, the Venezuelan economy. As a result, the country's foreign exchange reserves ran desperately low, as government debt mounted, and in desperation government devalued the currency by 100% on "Black Friday” (February 18, 1983). In addition, government announced an IMF-backed economic reform program which increased fuel, transport, and utilities prices, and lifted the price cap on some basic goods.

As a result, the country was plunged into economic and political crises, with deadly a wave of protests called the Caracazo riots in which an estimated 300 to 3,000 people died. The prevailing conditions also resulted in two unsuccessful coup attempts (in February and November, 1992), by leftist military officers, led by Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías to overthrow the government. Although Chavéz was imprisoned after the first coup attempt, he was pardoned in March 1994, thus enabling him to contest, and win, the 1998 presidential elections.

The Road to Hell

The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. And if anything, Venezuela's current tragic plight proves the adage, given the innocuous and well-intentioned start of the Chavéz-led Bolivarian Revolution.

Following his victory in the 1998 elections, Chavéz embarked on a reform campaign some have termed "institutional engineering” in a bid to consolidate his power and break the 40-year hold the two leading political parties had on Venezuelan politics. Chavéz also implemented "democratic socialist" economic policies, including the redistribution of wealth, land reform, the creating creation of worker-owned cooperatives, and the attainment of food security and food sovereignty. To implement these policies, Chavéz created social programs called Bolivarian Missions and Communes, and 100,000 state-owned cooperatives.

Venezuela suffered an economic downturn in early 2002, and this, coupled with anger about Chavéz's war on the elites, and his alignment with Fidel Castro's Cuba led to an abortive coup against his government in April 2002. That same month, managers at the state petroleum company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), went on a two-month strike over Chavéz's nominations for new members of the company's board of directors. Chavéz had long denounced PDVSA (parent company of Citgo, a US energy company) for its association with the US and business elites. After the collapse of the strike, Chávez fired 18,000 PDVSA employees and replaced them with 100,000 of his supporters, aka Chavistas.

The failed PDVSA management strike enabled Chavéz to take control of the company's coffers to fund his social programs and support his political base. By 2011, some $500 million was siphoned from the PDVSA pension fund to finance government-backed financiers. Such lavish spending inflicted the Dutch Disease on the country, with its fiscal health wrecked, despite increasing exports of, and revenues from oil.

Chavéz's policies were initially helpful, but unsustainable because of the drain on the country's finances. While poverty rates decreased 48.6% in 1999 to 32.1% in 2013, Venezuela had the one of the highest literacy rates in the region, and malnutrition fell from 21% in 1998 to 6% in 2009, price controls led to shortages of goods. Similarly, currency controls, introduced to curb capital flight exacerbated matters by leading to a shortage of foreign exchange, a decline in the value of the Bolivar, and increasing inflation.

Although oil prices increased significantly later in 2002, bringing in huge revenues, Venezuela's economy began to collapse because of what someone called RIDDS: recession, inflation, declining foreign reserves, debt, and shortages. Thus, the huge increase in government spending during the 2012 campaign to re-elect Chavéz ballooned public debt and fiscal deficit. Similarly, the decision to replace trained PDVSA personnel with revolutionaries, and deprive the company of capital decreased oil production, despite increasing levels of proven reserves of oil.

Between 2007 and 2013, inflation grew an annual rate of 27.4% (at least five times the rate for Latin America), scarcity, (especially of food, medicines and essential goods) set in, and foreign reserves fell at an alarming rate of $38 million per day. In short, all indicators pointed to trouble ahead for Venezuela when Chavéz died in March 2013.

Enter Maduro

Following the death of Chavéz, his Vice President and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicolás Maduro Moros, became Interim President. Maduro went on to win the constitutionally-mandated presidential elections in April 2013, and was inaugurated as President on April 19, 2013. A former bus driver who did not complete his high school education, Maduro made up for his lack of the charisma that Chávez, his predecessor and mentor, had by being autocratic and continuing Chávez's populist programs.

Things got worse in a hurry. Annual inflation increased from 29.4% in April 2013 to 61.5% a year later. Hyperinflation (i.e. monthly inflation rate exceeds 50%) set in in 2016 when inflation reached an annual rate of 800%, and the economy contracted almost 19%. By September 2016, 15% of Venezuelans were eating discarded food they picked from dumpsites.

In 2017, inflation reached 4,000%, as Venezuelans lost average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) because of food shortages, and 90% of them lived in poverty. To make matters worse, the US government slapped sanctions on Maduro in a bid to prevent him from raising additional funds. Last month, Venezuela's annual inflation rate reached a staggering 200,000%, meaning that prices increase by that much since August 2017. In addition, corruption and crime increased, and people took to the streets to protest against the difficult conditions they were enduring.

President Maduro tried every trick in the book to arrest the country's slide into chaos by increasing the minimum wage four times between April 2014 and July 2015, changing the method of calculation of inflation, introducing a crypto currency, the Petro, as well as devaluing and re-denominating the currency by cutting five zeros from it. Nothing worked.

In exasperation, Venezuelans have been voting with their feet, with an estimated 1.6 million of them having fled their country since 2015, according to the UN agency for migration. The majority of these migrants are professionals and the middle class, thereby depriving the country of much-needed human capital. The mass emigration of Venezuelans has also strained neighboring countries (especially Colombia and Peru, which have taken in almost 1 million, and over 400,000 Venezuelans, respectively), and provided graphic images to a global audience. About two weeks ago, a Summit of 13 Latin American countries agreed to reduce restrictions on Venezuelan migrants, and appealed for more international aid to enable them deal with the inflow of Venezuelans, which Venezuela's president Maduro said was "normal."

Who Cares?

Venezuela's economic meltdown should be of concern to many, including those in the Internet infrastructure industry. With one chicken costing 14 million Bolivars (about $2.2), and banks out of cash, it is easy to imagine how difficult it would be to register or renew the registration of a domain name, or purchase a certificate of authority, not to mention buy hardware such as servers. Such challenges impact many people and issues such as online privacy and safety, as well as security, both within and outside Venezuela.

Venezuela should also be a cause for concern because it has been a major source of funding for developing countries, especially in development cooperation among developing countries in the global South (the so-called South-South cooperation). Between 2000 and 2011, Venezuela spent $7.6 billion (in 2009 USD) on development finance in other countries. In addition, Venezuela initiated the Petrocaribe alliance which provides oil at concessionary terms to its 17 member countries, many of them from CARICOM, the 15-member Caribbean economic community.

Despite the unimaginable difficulties faced by Venezuelans, they continue to make significant contributions to the maintenance of the global Internet infrastructure as well as the policy development processes that underpin it. The Venezuelan ccTLD, .VE is an important part of the Internet infrastructure, along with copies of the F and L root servers. Earlier this year, the .VE ccTLD was reported to have had an additional 48,000 domain names registered compared to a year earlier. This increase, however, is probably due to the high-handed methods of the Venezuelan government which banned the use of all non-.VE domains in the country.

In partnership with the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC), Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), and ICANN, Venezuela installed copies of the F- and L-root servers in 2006, and 2015, respectively, thereby helping increasing the resilience of the Internet infrastructure in the region. Venezuela's contribution to the global Internet infrastructure includes the ALBA-1 fiber cable which connects Venezuela, Cuba and Jamaica to the Internet. Other international sub-marine cable projects Venezuela is connected to include the Americas-1 South, the Americas-II, Arcos-1, the Atlantica-1/GlobeNet, and the PAC.

Besides hardware and hard cash, Venezuela also contributes to the global Internet by participating in ICANN, and other similar regional and international organizations. Venezuela has been a member of ICANN's Government Advisory Committee (GAC) since 2014, is a member of the CCNSO as well as ALAC, and its regional structure in Latin America and the Caribbean, LACRALO. Venezuelans also contribute to the work of Internet-related regional organizations such as LACNOG and LACNIC, work in the DNS industry, and have an Internet Society (ISOC) Chapter.

What Now?

In view of the difficult economic situation in Venezuela and the contribution of the country and its people to the global Internet, it is fair to contemplate what can and should be done to support them. Clearly, support from the international community should be coordinated, and tailored to the missions of various organizations or partner providing such support.

Venezuelans themselves should take the lead in the developing a support program or programs. In this regard, organizations such as ICANN and ISOC, along with international development partners (e.g. World Bank, and the ITU), should work with Venezuelans, as well as regional partners (e.g. LACNIC) to develop a support program to address current needs and plan for the recovery of the Venezuelan economy.

Although this might be easier said than done given that the US is hell-bent on regime change in Venezuela, the old adage that there's a way where there's a will applies. ICANN, for example, can help in a number of ways including travel support to enable Venezuelans attend the organization's meetings and providing them additional slots in ICANN'S Fellowship and Future Leaders programs.

ICANN can also support the Venezuelan Internet infrastructure and DNS industry players, including ISPs, registrars, the .VE ccTLD registry, and operators of root server copies. ICANN, ISOC, and the DNS industry outside Venezuela can hire Venezuelans who are or have been active in these communities but were forced to leave their country because of the difficult circumstances prevailing there.

No Condition is Permanent

Venezuela's present predicament is a good reason to recall the Nigerian proverb: No condition is permanent! As tough as things are, they will get better. Just as the United States, which once paid tributes to Barbary (aka Ottoman) corsairs based in Tripoli, Libya, can now choose when and how to lord over that country, Venezuela will one day rise from these ashes. This is a great time to leave a lasting legacy on the minds of Venezuelans, especially the younger generation, and all hands should be on deck to help them wade through their present difficulties. So, when next you get in the mood to sing What a Wonderful World, please spare a thought for Venezuela.

          Morgan Stanley plans to offer bitcoin swap trading for clients      Cache   Translate Page      

Morgan Stanley plans to offer trading in complex derivatives tied to the largest cryptocurrency, according to a person familiar with the matter, joining other Wall Street firms in creating ways for clients to play the digital currency market.

The U.S. bank will deal in contracts that give investors synthetic exposure to the performance of Bitcoin, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. Investors will be able to go long or short using the so-called price return swaps, and Morgan Stanley will charge a spread for each transaction, the person said.

The bank is already technically prepared to offer the Bitcoin swap trading, and will launch once there is proven institutional client demand and after the completion of an internal approval process, the person said. A spokesman for Morgan Stanley declined to comment on the initiative.

Wall Street’s biggest banks are pushing ahead with plans to offer sophisticated derivatives tied to digital assets, even as the market value for cryptocurrencies collapses beneath them. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Citigroup Inc. are also preparing new products tied to Bitcoin, which has lost more than half its value this year.

Morgan Stanley does not plan to trade Bitcoin directly and its swaps are tied to Bitcoin futures contracts, the person said. Chief Executive Officer James Gorman said earlier this year that the bank wouldn’t let customers buy and sell cryptocurrencies directly through Morgan Stanley, but would instead build a trading desk to support various derivatives tied to digital assets.

The bank hired Andrew Peel as head of digital asset markets from Credit Suisse Group AG in June, according to the person familiar with the plan. Peel, based in Zurich, reports to Niall Dowling, Morgan Stanley’s global head of equities trading, the person said.

Citigroup is developing a new mechanism for trading cryptocurrencies known as digital asset receipts, a person with knowledge of the plans said earlier this month. Goldman Sachs is exploring derivatives on Bitcoin called non-deliverable forwards, and is considering a plan to offer custody for crypto funds.

Trading recommendations:

According to the H1 time - frame, I found that price broke the supply trendline in the background and the Ichimoku cloud, which is a sign that buyers are in control. I also found the rising upward trendline and successful rejection of the Tenkan-sen (yellow line), which is another sign of strenght. On the H4 time – frame, I found a fresh cross of Tenkan sen – Kijun sen, which is another positive sign for a further upward movement. Watch for buying opportunities. The upward target is set at the price of $6.696.

Support 1 – $6.384 (yellow line)

Support 2 - $6.309 (purple line)

Objective target - $6.696 (Fibonacci expansion 161.8%)

          Federal judge rules initial coin offerings fall under securities law      Cache   Translate Page      
A federal judge ruled [text, PDF] Tuesday that US securities laws may cover an initial coin offering (ICO), allowing the government to regulate billions of dollars in cybercurrency. The ruling came in the criminal case of US v. Zaslavskiy [text, PDF] where Zaslavskiy is charged with promoting digital currencies backed by investments in real estate and diamonds that prosecutors said did not exist. US District Judge Raymond Dearie said that a reasonable jury could find that Zaslavskiy’s ICO is a security for purposes of federal criminal law. Zaslavskiy lawyers argued that securities laws are unconstitutionally vague as applied to the defendant. However, Dearie stated that “Congress’ purpose in enacting the securities laws was to regulate investments, in whatever form they are made and by whatever name they are called. … The fact that simply labeling an investment opportunity as ‘virtual currency’ or ‘cryptocurrency’ does…

Cryptocurrency have finally shrugged off naysayer comparisons to the dotcom boom after markets lost more value than the crash of 2000. ‘Very Likely A Winner Takes All Market’ As Bloomberg reported September 12 following another day of declines, especially concentrated in altcoin markets, the MVIS CryptoCompare Digital Assets 10 Index now reads 80 percent lower than at all-time highs around December last year. This beats the Nasdaq Composite Index’s decline after the dotcom bubble burst

          Spare a Thought for Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page      

CircleID CircleID: Please spare a thought for Venezuela. This, the 33rd largest country in the world and with about 34 million people, the largest proven reserves of oil, the cheapest price of gasoline in the world, and was in 1950 richer than Germany, has fallen on times so hard in this once Latin America's richest country that 75% of the population lost an average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) in weight in one year because of food scarcity. And you might ask: "Why should I care?"

Venezuela is located on the northern coast of South America and shares land borders with Brazil, Colombia, Guyana, as well as Trinidad and Tobago. Officially called the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, the country was colonized by Spain in 1522 but gained full independence about 300 years later and 188 years ago, in 1830. Venezuela is a charter member of many important international organizations, including the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS), Mercosur (the South American trade bloc), and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), to name a few.

Venezuela is the 10th largest exporter of oil in the world, and its economy is largely based on the petroleum sector, which accounted for over 50% of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country in 2015. Thanks to a huge government subsidy program, Venezuela has the cheapest gasoline in the world, costing $0.11 per gallon ($0.03 per litre) in 2014, even after a 6,200% increase!

Give Me Two!

Venezuela's history, although rocky, has had its glorious moments, including periods of political plurality, as well as oil-fueled economic booms that attracted immigrants from near and far (including Europe) into the country. Venezuela has also had dark moments of political turmoil, dictatorships, and economic gloom, because of various domestic and external factors.

Venezuela enjoyed both a relatively stable democracy, and significant economic growth between 1958 and the early 1980s. During this period, politics was dominated by two parties, and government revenues more than doubled after the 1973 Arab-Israeli war resulted in a huge rise in oil prices. Although the boom would soon turn to burst, it lasted long enough for Venezuelans to become known for the phrase "Ta barato, dame dos” ("It's cheap, give me two") as they bought up relatively cheap goods in their travels abroad.

In the early 1980s, the global oil glut brought down crude oil prices, and along with it, the Venezuelan economy. As a result, the country's foreign exchange reserves ran desperately low, as government debt mounted, and in desperation government devalued the currency by 100% on "Black Friday” (February 18, 1983). In addition, government announced an IMF-backed economic reform program which increased fuel, transport, and utilities prices, and lifted the price cap on some basic goods.

As a result, the country was plunged into economic and political crises, with deadly a wave of protests called the Caracazo riots in which an estimated 300 to 3,000 people died. The prevailing conditions also resulted in two unsuccessful coup attempts (in February and November, 1992), by leftist military officers, led by Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías to overthrow the government. Although Chavéz was imprisoned after the first coup attempt, he was pardoned in March 1994, thus enabling him to contest, and win, the 1998 presidential elections.

The Road to Hell

The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. And if anything, Venezuela's current tragic plight proves the adage, given the innocuous and well-intentioned start of the Chavéz-led Bolivarian Revolution.

Following his victory in the 1998 elections, Chavéz embarked on a reform campaign some have termed "institutional engineering” in a bid to consolidate his power and break the 40-year hold the two leading political parties had on Venezuelan politics. Chavéz also implemented "democratic socialist" economic policies, including the redistribution of wealth, land reform, the creating creation of worker-owned cooperatives, and the attainment of food security and food sovereignty. To implement these policies, Chavéz created social programs called Bolivarian Missions and Communes, and 100,000 state-owned cooperatives.

Venezuela suffered an economic downturn in early 2002, and this, coupled with anger about Chavéz's war on the elites, and his alignment with Fidel Castro's Cuba led to an abortive coup against his government in April 2002. That same month, managers at the state petroleum company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), went on a two-month strike over Chavéz's nominations for new members of the company's board of directors. Chavéz had long denounced PDVSA (parent company of Citgo, a US energy company) for its association with the US and business elites. After the collapse of the strike, Chávez fired 18,000 PDVSA employees and replaced them with 100,000 of his supporters, aka Chavistas.

The failed PDVSA management strike enabled Chavéz to take control of the company's coffers to fund his social programs and support his political base. By 2011, some $500 million was siphoned from the PDVSA pension fund to finance government-backed financiers. Such lavish spending inflicted the Dutch Disease on the country, with its fiscal health wrecked, despite increasing exports of, and revenues from oil.

Chavéz's policies were initially helpful, but unsustainable because of the drain on the country's finances. While poverty rates decreased 48.6% in 1999 to 32.1% in 2013, Venezuela had the one of the highest literacy rates in the region, and malnutrition fell from 21% in 1998 to 6% in 2009, price controls led to shortages of goods. Similarly, currency controls, introduced to curb capital flight exacerbated matters by leading to a shortage of foreign exchange, a decline in the value of the Bolivar, and increasing inflation.

Although oil prices increased significantly later in 2002, bringing in huge revenues, Venezuela's economy began to collapse because of what someone called RIDDS: recession, inflation, declining foreign reserves, debt, and shortages. Thus, the huge increase in government spending during the 2012 campaign to re-elect Chavéz ballooned public debt and fiscal deficit. Similarly, the decision to replace trained PDVSA personnel with revolutionaries, and deprive the company of capital decreased oil production, despite increasing levels of proven reserves of oil.

Between 2007 and 2013, inflation grew an annual rate of 27.4% (at least five times the rate for Latin America), scarcity, (especially of food, medicines and essential goods) set in, and foreign reserves fell at an alarming rate of $38 million per day. In short, all indicators pointed to trouble ahead for Venezuela when Chavéz died in March 2013.

Enter Maduro

Following the death of Chavéz, his Vice President and former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nicolás Maduro Moros, became Interim President. Maduro went on to win the constitutionally-mandated presidential elections in April 2013, and was inaugurated as President on April 19, 2013. A former bus driver who did not complete his high school education, Maduro made up for his lack of the charisma that Chávez, his predecessor and mentor, had by being autocratic and continuing Chávez's populist programs.

Things got worse in a hurry. Annual inflation increased from 29.4% in April 2013 to 61.5% a year later. Hyperinflation (i.e. monthly inflation rate exceeds 50%) set in in 2016 when inflation reached an annual rate of 800%, and the economy contracted almost 19%. By September 2016, 15% of Venezuelans were eating discarded food they picked from dumpsites.

In 2017, inflation reached 4,000%, as Venezuelans lost average of 11 Kg (24 pounds) because of food shortages, and 90% of them lived in poverty. To make matters worse, the US government slapped sanctions on Maduro in a bid to prevent him from raising additional funds. Last month, Venezuela's annual inflation rate reached a staggering 200,000%, meaning that prices increase by that much since August 2017. In addition, corruption and crime increased, and people took to the streets to protest against the difficult conditions they were enduring.

President Maduro tried every trick in the book to arrest the country's slide into chaos by increasing the minimum wage four times between April 2014 and July 2015, changing the method of calculation of inflation, introducing a crypto currency, the Petro, as well as devaluing and re-denominating the currency by cutting five zeros from it. Nothing worked.

In exasperation, Venezuelans have been voting with their feet, with an estimated 1.6 million of them having fled their country since 2015, according to the UN agency for migration. The majority of these migrants are professionals and the middle class, thereby depriving the country of much-needed human capital. The mass emigration of Venezuelans has also strained neighboring countries (especially Colombia and Peru, which have taken in almost 1 million, and over 400,000 Venezuelans, respectively), and provided graphic images to a global audience. About two weeks ago, a Summit of 13 Latin American countries agreed to reduce restrictions on Venezuelan migrants, and appealed for more international aid to enable them deal with the inflow of Venezuelans, which Venezuela's president Maduro said was "normal."

Who Cares?

Venezuela's economic meltdown should be of concern to many, including those in the Internet infrastructure industry. With one chicken costing 14 million Bolivars (about $2.2), and banks out of cash, it is easy to imagine how difficult it would be to register or renew the registration of a domain name, or purchase a certificate of authority, not to mention buy hardware such as servers. Such challenges impact many people and issues such as online privacy and safety, as well as security, both within and outside Venezuela.

Venezuela should also be a cause for concern because it has been a major source of funding for developing countries, especially in development cooperation among developing countries in the global South (the so-called South-South cooperation). Between 2000 and 2011, Venezuela spent $7.6 billion (in 2009 USD) on development finance in other countries. In addition, Venezuela initiated the Petrocaribe alliance which provides oil at concessionary terms to its 17 member countries, many of them from CARICOM, the 15-member Caribbean economic community.

Despite the unimaginable difficulties faced by Venezuelans, they continue to make significant contributions to the maintenance of the global Internet infrastructure as well as the policy development processes that underpin it. The Venezuelan ccTLD, .VE is an important part of the Internet infrastructure, along with copies of the F and L root servers. Earlier this year, the .VE ccTLD was reported to have had an additional 48,000 domain names registered compared to a year earlier. This increase, however, is probably due to the high-handed methods of the Venezuelan government which banned the use of all non-.VE domains in the country.

In partnership with the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC), Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), and ICANN, Venezuela installed copies of the F- and L-root servers in 2006, and 2015, respectively, thereby helping increasing the resilience of the Internet infrastructure in the region. Venezuela's contribution to the global Internet infrastructure includes the ALBA-1 fiber cable which connects Venezuela, Cuba and Jamaica to the Internet. Other international sub-marine cable projects Venezuela is connected to include the Americas-1 South, the Americas-II, Arcos-1, the Atlantica-1/GlobeNet, and the PAC.

Besides hardware and hard cash, Venezuela also contributes to the global Internet by participating in ICANN, and other similar regional and international organizations. Venezuela has been a member of ICANN's Government Advisory Committee (GAC) since 2014, is a member of the CCNSO as well as ALAC, and its regional structure in Latin America and the Caribbean, LACRALO. Venezuelans also contribute to the work of Internet-related regional organizations such as LACNOG and LACNIC, work in the DNS industry, and have an Internet Society (ISOC) Chapter.

What Now?

In view of the difficult economic situation in Venezuela and the contribution of the country and its people to the global Internet, it is fair to contemplate what can and should be done to support them. Clearly, support from the international community should be coordinated, and tailored to the missions of various organizations or partner providing such support.

Venezuelans themselves should take the lead in the developing a support program or programs. In this regard, organizations such as ICANN and ISOC, along with international development partners (e.g. World Bank, and the ITU), should work with Venezuelans, as well as regional partners (e.g. LACNIC) to develop a support program to address current needs and plan for the recovery of the Venezuelan economy.

Although this might be easier said than done given that the US is hell-bent on regime change in Venezuela, the old adage that there's a way where there's a will applies. ICANN, for example, can help in a number of ways including travel support to enable Venezuelans attend the organization's meetings and providing them additional slots in ICANN'S Fellowship and Future Leaders programs.

ICANN can also support the Venezuelan Internet infrastructure and DNS industry players, including ISPs, registrars, the .VE ccTLD registry, and operators of root server copies. ICANN, ISOC, and the DNS industry outside Venezuela can hire Venezuelans who are or have been active in these communities but were forced to leave their country because of the difficult circumstances prevailing there.

No Condition is Permanent

Venezuela's present predicament is a good reason to recall the Nigerian proverb: No condition is permanent! As tough as things are, they will get better. Just as the United States, which once paid tributes to Barbary (aka Ottoman) corsairs based in Tripoli, Libya, can now choose when and how to lord over that country, Venezuela will one day rise from these ashes. This is a great time to leave a lasting legacy on the minds of Venezuelans, especially the younger generation, and all hands should be on deck to help them wade through their present difficulties. So, when next you get in the mood to sing What a Wonderful World, please spare a thought for Venezuela.

          Huobi Enters Japanese Market With BitTrade Acquisition      Cache   Translate Page      
Huobi Japan

Huobi Japan Holding Ltd. has acquired a majority stake in Japanese cryptocurrency exchange BitTrade, marking the top-three exchange’s formal entry into the Japanese market.

BitTrade, which is one of the 16 government-approved crypto exchanges in the country, announced the news yesterday, September 12, 2018.

Japan's Financial Services Agency (FSA) began issuing exchange operating licenses in 2017, but in light of the Coincheck hack in January 2018, the approval rate has plummeted as the agency has tightened its requirements.

Huobi Japan, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Huobi Global, plans to "aggressively scale up the platform" in partnership with the management team of BitTrade. The subsidiary will work on making the platform user-friendly for its international customers, while providing more professional and compliant services as well.

Huobi CFO Chris Lee hailed the partnership as a strategic success, saying the companies’ synergy will strive toward improvement “through continued investment into R&D and compliance.”

“Leveraging on BitTrade's leadership team and its Japanese government-approved license, this is just the beginning,” he added.

Huobi, currently ranked the third largest crypto exchange in the world by trade volume, has shown an inclination toward expanding into new regions through partnerships with local companies. The exchange currently operates in Singapore, Korea, Canada, Australia, the UAE, Luxembourg, Brazil and others.

BitTrade's owner Eric Cheng, a Singaporean millionaire who acquired a 100 percent stake in BitTrade Co. Ltd. for $50 million earlier this year, said both parties would scale the platform into the "largest in Japan with the potential to extend its services globally."

He went on further to state:

“Together, we will leverage on Huobi's global footprint, excellent management team, and advanced security systems to grow BitTrade into a market-leading position in Japan. Having a long-term partnership with an established brand such as Huobi is the right step for BitTrade as we look to continue our rapid growth trajectory."

          Morgan Stanley Eyes Bitcoin Swap Contracts Tied to Futures Prices      Cache   Translate Page      
Morgan Stanley Veteran Jacob Dienelt Joins Bitcoin 2.0 Startup

Morgan Stanley is joining Wall Street’s race toward an institutional-friendly bitcoin derivative.

According to anonymous sources reporting to Bloomberg, the financial institution is devising price return swaps tied to bitcoin. These derivatives would allow investors to indirectly invest in the market’s flagship currency, allotting them the option to buy into long or short positions through the contracts.

Taking their prices from bitcoin futures, the swaps will not handle bitcoin directly. Seeing as Morgan Stanley is a regulated and established financial institution, tying the product to futures contracts is a safer bet than basing them on bitcoin’s spot price, as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and Chicago Board of Exchange offer fully-regulated bitcoin futures from which Morgan Stanley can pool pricing data.

Bloomberg’s source claimed that the derivatives are ready for launch, but it’s waiting on an in-house approval process and sufficient investor demand before taking them to market. In the original reporting, a Morgan Stanley spokesperson declined to comment on the developments.

If the tip is valid, it would make Morgan Stanley the latest in legacy financial groups looking to open a doorway for institutional investors to enter the cryptocurrency market. Despite false reports claiming that Goldman Sachs had put hopes for a bitcoin strategy behind it, the bank has a strategy desk in the works, a service that, if opened, would add to the bitcoin futures options it facilitates for its clients.

Citigroup also reportedly has so-called digital asset receipts in the works. Like its traditional counterpart in American depository receipts, these receipts offer investors an option to purchase an asset that doesn’t trade on local markets from a foreign exchange.

Institutional-tier offerings such as those detailed above are seen as much-needed catalysts to stimulate the flow of institutional money into the market, offering heavyweight financial players a less-risky way to buy into assets like bitcoin. For the same reason, custody services like those offered by Coinbase, BitGo and others are necessary for safely storing and managing these investments as well.

          BitGo Gets Approval From State Regulators to Launch Custody Service      Cache   Translate Page      
Regulators Greenlight Bitcoin Futures

BitGo has received the green light from the South Dakota Division of Banking to act as a qualified custodian for digital assets, according to a Business Wire press release.

The approval means the BitGo Trust Company can now offer secure storage for digital assets “designed for institutional customers,” Chief Compliance Officer Shahla Ali told Bitcoin Magazine. “Built on BitGo’s multisignature security, BitGo Custody delivers modern security for modern assets,” Ali continued.

Ali went on to explain that “BitGo has been working on its application for its charter to be a qualified custodian for the past year.” Per South Dakota regulations, the company won't begin storing assets under the Trust until a 30-day period has elapsed.

Along with the volatility of cryptocurrencies — which stablecoins are seeking to remedy —  the obstacle of having a safe storage option for cryptocurrencies has obstructed institutional investors from entering the market. Seeing as these investors are used to having their funds safely stored or being FDIC insured, BitGo CEO Mike Belshe believes the lack of readily available custodial services have kept "institutional investors out of the market."

BitGo is not the first cryptocurrency company to offer custody services. Digital assets platforms Coinbase and Gemini have both launched their own custody solutions in a bid to attract institutional investors to the market, as well, and financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Northern Trust are reportedly planning to launch similar services.

In the press release, Belshe points out that, unlike custody services offered by exchanges, BitGo is solely focused on cryptocurrency custody. Built on the technology behind BitGo’s wallet services, the custody will offer cold wallet support with storage in “bank-grade Class III vaults,” support for over 75 cryptocurrencies, multi-user accounts and around-the-clock support.

The custody service is the latest attempt by the company to build out its services. Recently, BitGo implemented a predictive Unspent Transaction Output (UTXO) management system. The UTXO system manages micro-units of cryptocurrencies “by minimizing transaction sizes at high fee rates, while automatically sweeping up and processing many small fragments of coins when fees are low.”

          Berkeley Professor Questions Stablecoin Viability in Unflattering Op-Ed      Cache   Translate Page      
Stablecoin Op-ed

University of Berkeley Professor Barry Eichengreen has taken a swipe at the viability of stablecoins in an op-ed published on Project Syndicate. The critique, entitled “The Stable-Coin Myth,” argues stablecoins are not automatically "viable" just because they are pegged to an asset, though Eichengreen does believe they have an advantage over "conventional cryptocurrencies" such as bitcoin which he says "is highly unstable" and "unattractive as units of account."

“Stable coins purport to solve these problems. Because their value is stable in terms of dollars or their equivalent, they are attractive as units of account and stores of value. They are not mere vehicles for financial speculation. But this doesn’t mean that they are viable," he writes.

Stablecoins are digital tokens intended to retain a stable value, usually one pegged to a traditional currency like the dollar or euro. Typically, they are backed by a fiat currency or other assets, though this is not always the case.

Citing Tether (USDT) in its U.S. context, Eichengreen believes that fully collateralized stablecoins won’t gain traction because it would mean trading in a currency that is “supported by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, for a cryptocurrency with questionable backing that is awkward to use.” To him, “it is not obvious that the model will scale, or that governments will let it.”

Since its launch in 2014, USDT has been the most widely used stablecoin, and it's currently the eighth most popular cryptocurrency by market cap. Going mainstream comes with challenges, though, and Tether has suffered some adversity. Analysts and investors alike have criticized the stablecoin for its lack of transparency, and its affiliation with popular cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex has raised questions as to whether it is printing more USDT than it can back.

Despite the controversy surrounding Tether, other companies seem to be learning from Tether's missteps, including fiat-collateralized competitor True USD. 2018 has seen an influx of stablecoins hit the market, some of which are funded by traditional financial institutions.

Two days ago, Gemini announced the launch of the Gemini dollar (GUSD) after getting the green light from the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS), an announcement that was quickly followed by the introduction of the Paxos Standard (PAX) stablecoin by Paxos.

According to the NYDFS’ press release, both tokens are subject to the Bank Secrecy Act, anti-money laundering controls and Office of Foreign Assets Control oversight to prevent them from being used in connection with money laundering or to finance terrorism.

Unlike Tether, which runs on the Omni Layer on top of the Bitcoin blockchain, both Gemini Dollar and Paxos Standard are ERC-20 coins that run on the Ethereum blockchain.

          Stocks Face Swarm Of Hindenburg Omens As Treasury Vol Nears Record Low      Cache   Translate Page      

Nothing can stop it...

A growing cluster of Hindenburg Omens is raising anxiety levels...

As US equities decouple from the rest of the world and push to ever higher record highs.

As Bloomberg notes, on both the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq there have been eight of these technical patterns over the past six sessions, Sundial Capital's Jason Goepfert said, the biggest cluster since 2014 and the third-longest stretch in 50 years.

The indicator, named after the German zeppelin that caught fire and crashed more than eight decades ago, gauges indecision in the market and is designed to predict a decline within 40 days.

And while warning signals are flashing in equity land, uncertainty in US Treasury bond markets has plummeted to near record lows...

The CBOE/CBOT 10-year U.S. Treasury Note Volatility fell to 3.38 today, which is the lowest since December when it fell to a record low.

Back to today's markets, they were uncharacteristically quiet with Trump's tweet denial of WSJ's trade talks story the only news catalyst for a move... (Small Caps and Trannies underperformed on the day)

 

But that impact yuan more than stocks...

 

S&P topped 2,900 intraday and it appears someone wanted to ensure a close above that level...

Thanks to some panic-selling of vol in the last 30 mins...

China stocks were miraculously lifted in the afternoon session...

 

If you're in the mood for a laugh, here is China's 'Tesla' - NIO - which soared 72% today (after its disappointing IPO yesterday at the low end of its range)...

 

 

Treasury yields tumbled on the CPI miss this morning, but retraced those gains after Europe closed...

 

The Dollar Index dropped once again (3rd drop in the last 4 days)...

 

But EM FX was mixed with Argentina and Brazil dropping as Lira, Rand, and Ruble rallied...

Cryptocurrencies bucked their recent trend and ended in the green today, with Bitcoin managing to scramble up to unchanged on the week...

 

Despite the dollar weakness, commodities could not maintain a bid, fading after the CPI disappointment as Reflation bets faded...

 

WTI dropped back below $69 and Gold futures pushed down towards $1200...

 

Finally, we thought it interesting that the entire Chinese stock market capitalization is now just 5 times larger than AAPL's (down from nearly 14 times back at the peak of its 2015 bubble)...

The country’s stock market, which is no longer the world’s second biggest, has dropped in value as concerns over economic growth and a trade war with the U.S. linger. China’s market capitalization now stands at $5.7 trillion, leaving its multiple over Apple near the lowest since 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

          Can you mine cryptocurrency on the Raspberry Pi 3 B+?      Cache   Translate Page      
Best answer: Yes you can mine cryptocurrency with a Raspberry Pi. However, it's extremely difficult to turn any profit as the cost of electricity can outweigh the return due to the Raspberry Pi's relatively low performance when calculating hashes. Amazon: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ ($40) An exercise in counterproductivity Cryptocurrency is "mined" by calculating complex equations on a computer. Any modern computer — even a smartphone — can be used to mine coin, but the hard part is mining enough of it to make things worthwhile. Cryptocurrency value usually works on two sliding scales; as more is mined it becomes tougher to mine more and the value increases. However, these scales aren't equal and even though the value may skyrocket, the complexity of mining them has skyrocketed more. Today, mining popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin on a Raspberry Pi would cost more in electricity that you would earn in profit. You could, in theory, mine newer coin that hasn't become as popu...

The offered contracts are tied to Bitcoin futures contracts; payouts to investors will be made based on increases or decreases in Bitcoin’s price over set…

          Google mysteriously removes cryptocurrency wallets from Play Store      Cache   Translate Page      

Google removed at least three major cryptocurrency wallets from its Play Store overnight. While the reason for their removal is not immediately clear, Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver is blaming Google’s new cryptocurrency mining policy. Over the last 12 hours, cryptocurrency wallet apps Bitcoin Wallet (managed by Bitcoin.com), CoPay, and BitPay have been removed. The curious part is that none of these are cryptocurrency mining apps (nor do they advertise such features). Google has remained tight-lipped about what triggered the removal. Though that shouldn’t be a surprise, given its policy not to comment on individual cases like these. Ver has since hinted…
