CRYPTO AD NETWORKS Overcoming The Adversities Of A Nascent Industry

CRYPTO AD NETWORKS
Overcoming The Adversities Of A Nascent Industry

The cryptocurrency sphere is no longer considered a craze only supported and bolstered up by tech geeks and anarchists. Cryptocurrencies have become a whole new financial class by themselves and Blockchain technology is at the forefront as we move into a new world where the recent events have seen complete economic chaos and we are now recession-bound on a global scale. 

Whether it’s a mining collective, a crypto exchange, an ICO or ILP with a specific use case,  or plain old marketing – inbound, affiliate, referral, the whole gamut, a myriad of opportunities has opened up for companies, and the individual, that is focused on cryptocurrencies and blockchain, in order to create an ecosystem of self-sovereignty, financial and otherwise, along with transparency, and a trustless environment where society isn’t at the behest of the powers-that-be.    

However, getting the word out to the people en-masse has been inhibited and a hindrance to this emerging industry which is a concern to the advertising and marketing of the blockchain and crypto businesses.

  
Advertising Network Adversities

Traditional ad networks and social media giants like Google, Facebook, Youtube, et al have either outright banned any type of advertising/marketing content relating to crypto, or have placed unreasonable conditions such as requiring a license from a governmental authority. 

Also, their policies could change in the blink of an eye without any warning, such as YouTube banning cryptocurrency channels, or Facebook’s constant run-ins with blockchain ads.  
                                                                         
And even if you somehow do find a way to run crypto ads, you’ll be restricted in a variety of ways that would severely impact the success and reach of your campaigns. For instance, 

  • Everything is dependent on whims and fancies of the network, and its changing policies towards crypto. 
  • Little to no targeting options on the audience you seek to engage
  • The requirement to share a lot of personal information.
  • Campaigns will be put under stricter scrutiny, and go through a longer review period
  • Restrictions on the type of payment methods you can employ
  • Limited number/type of websites where you can advertise

Furthermore, as technology keeps evolving, it is crucial for businesses in the sector to keep pace and grow along with it. This is why it’s become vital for advertisers, and publishers, to seek out alternatives. 

A Real Need For Cryptocurrency Ad Networks

Cryptocurrency ad networks are niche online advertising platforms connecting advertisers and publishers who share a common objective of promoting cryptocurrency marketing campaigns. Like with any other ad network, publishers offer their ad space and advertisers pay to use that. 

Crypto ad networks offer a myriad of benefits, such as:

  • Connecting predominantly with advertisers and publishers from the Crypto sphere. 
  • Multiple ad options like banner ads, sponsored articles, press releases and more          
  • Targeted audience of a younger generation and people already interested in crypto 
  • A requirement of little to no personal information
  • Faster campaign approval process.
  • Custom-designed crypto banners
  • Dedicated customer support 
  • Cryptocurrency payment methods

These are all part of the cottage businesses within Markethive that are designed to be facilitated by the members, not the corporate body, with the purpose of generating an income for the users.

The Prime Objective Of Alexa Ranking

The Alexa ranking measures traffic on any given website from subscribers and visitors that have the Alexa Extension installed. Alexa rank is a measure of website popularity. It ranks millions of websites in order of popularity, with an Alexa Rank of 1 being the most popular. 

Alexa rank is calculated using a proprietary methodology that combines a site's estimated traffic and visitor engagement over the past three months. Although every website’s goal is to achieve a low Alexa ranking, it has no bearing on the number of digital impressions a site generates so there is no negative effect on banner impression sales.

Sites that have Alexa ranking like Chronicle of around 16,000, charge $66 CPM, and estimating their impressions from Worth Of Web, we can estimate they are receiving 13 million impressions per month with a potential income over $8.5 million. 

AMBcrypto has an Alexa rank of 53,893 and charges $5,500 to run a banner duration for a month. They average about 100-200 banner ads per month displayed based on IP address, time, and random rotation.

However, if you have not installed the Alexa Browser extension, please do so. It does help to give Alexa more accurate data with visitors.

Blockchain and Smart Contracts Have a ‘Dark Side,’ Says Researcher

Blockchain and Smart Contracts Have a ‘Dark Side,’ Says Researcher

The immutability of blockchain ledgers and smart contracts have a “dark side,” argues UPenn professor Kevin Warbach.


Blockchain technology crystallizes the rise of “algorithmic power” that today presents a major challenge to traditional forms of sovereignty, legal authority and state-led governance.

So goes the argument in a new post on the Oxford University Faculty of Law blog on Monday by Kevin Warbach, a professor of legal studies and business ethics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Warbach’s forthcoming book After the Digital Tornado: Networks, Algorithms, Humanity will argue that blockchain technology could wreak unintentional havoc if its characteristics are not understood and tackled directly. For Warbach, the immutability of blockchain ledgers and the use of smart contracts — self-executing software code — have an implicit “dark side.” While they are designed to overcome the weaknesses of human or institutional intermediaries, the alternative they create has

its own inherent tensions:

“Contracts of any consequence are generally incomplete; that is to say, they do not precisely specify outcomes for every possible scenario. Smart contracts magnify this incompleteness. They can only express their terms in sharp-edged software code, eliminating the interpretive discretion of human judges and juries.”

While traditional contracts “backstop” human commitments with the legal force of the state, smart contracts use automated, code-enforced decision-making to establish confidence between parties. Attempting to do away with fallible human governance can be “seductive,” he states. Yet too strong a belief in the “perfectly rational vehicle” of computer code to regulate imperfect real-world behavior can have bad results — without any clarity as to who

has the power to resolve them:

“The dark side to immutability is that valid transactions cannot easily be reversed on a blockchain, not that invalid or illegitimate ones cannot be. Immutability creates the potential for catastrophic failures with no clear means of remediation.”

Blockchain technology more broadly should be addressed as a method of governance, poised on the “knife edge of freedom and constraints,” he writes. The paper concludes by recommending an approach that Warbach calls “governance by design.” This means recognizing that “perfect immutability creates systems with unacceptable fragility” that will require integrating governance mechanisms systematically — not as an afterthought — as the technology evolves.

HOW CAN YOU IMPROVE ON YOUR MARKETING EFFORTS?

HOW CAN YOU IMPROVE ON YOUR MARKETING EFFORTS?

MARKETING HAS EVOLVED OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS, SO WHAT'S NEW?

I came across an interesting theory by Mark Schaefer, Blogger, and Keynote Speaker of all things marketing, and I thought it was quite on point. This puts a broader perspective on how we conduct our marketing efforts and how things have changed over the last 100 years. 

The role of marketing is changing dramatically. We are in the third rebellion where consumers are now in control. The customers are telling our stories. The customer is the marketer.

Back in the 1950s, advertising was a promise to consumers. An extraordinary promise and generally people just took the advertisers at their word. They’ve believed their claims. Advertising started to heat up and as the competition became more fierce, these claims became more remarkable until they became just lies. So the first consumer rebellion was "the end of lies". 

 

The advent of the second rebellion came around the mid-’90s by the sound of a phone line dial tone connecting to the internet signal. It was the dawn of the information age and enabled by technology, where anybody could gather info on any company or government that left the companies terrified. Now the consumers can do their own research, compare products and claims. This was the second rebellion, led by technology, "the end of secrets".

Now we’re in the third rebellion, "the end of control". Today we are experiencing that consumers are now in control. They are a lot more skeptical about what they’re are being told through bold advertisements, so now what? What does a business do to win over a customer these days? 

Before the internet, we mostly kept our brand experiences to ourselves. Maybe we told a few people in our innermost circles. Only a minority of people were motivated to complain or compliment the brand, wrote, or called the company. Once the internet arrived, a few more emailed companies their thoughts.

Then came social media.

Image by contentgroup 

 

In the mid-2000s as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube launched, marketers discovered that not only could they advertise there, but consumers could express their feelings and share their experiences with brands there. Suddenly consumers had the same kind of broad media platform that brands had enjoyed for years. Social media reversed the communication flow of brand messages and turbocharged it.

Social media is producing little pockets or groups of consumers engaging and sharing positive or negative information about their experiences of any given brand or company.  Markets are now conversations and customers are in control of those conversations. Businesses can no longer buy their way in, they need to be invited and that’s what marketing is about today. 

 

How Can We Connect With Potential Customers?

We can go to the core of where our customers are who are sharing their thoughts or grievances with their peers. By listening and engaging more on channels such as social media, customer support, forums, and the like, we can experience and understand the consumers’ point of view. 

Connecting with them through writing blogs and articles, consistently, of interesting and relevant information will create an authoritative presence, perhaps meet a customer’s need and provide a solution that perhaps can’t be recognized in a short advertising message. This is otherwise known as content marketing which can create conversations and is a good way to be invited into the consumers’ hearts and minds. 

We can’t always control what people think of our brand, but we are able to influence it and reduce any negative experiences by being present and mindful of consumers’ perspectives. It’s a known fact that solving problems can have a greater impact on the individual who will sing your praises and even become a loyal advocate. The humanity that causes consumers to brand experiences also promotes understanding, forgiveness, and enthusiasm. 

BE MORE HUMAN in everything you do and every engagement you make. It’s about building relationships and connecting at an authentic and genuine level. The most human company wins. 

  • It’s not just about our “why.” It’s also about their “why.”
  • What is their “purpose”? Many people only buy based on their beliefs.
  • Technology should be used to help your company be more compassionate, receptive, fascinating, and useful.
  • Marketing isn’t about making promises. It’s about keeping promises.

 

Content Marketing Of All Types Still Rule

There are many different forms of Content Marketing, such as blogging, video tutorials, digital media, email newsletters, white papers, free reports, etc, and yet many people are confused about the entire concept. 

Content Marketing means creating and sharing valuable free content to attract and convert prospects into customers, and customers into repeat buyers or loyal followers. The type of content you share is closely related to what you sell, whether it’s a product, a belief, a cause, or a corporate or personal brand. In other words, you’re educating people so that they know, like, and trust you enough to do business with you. 

All businesses are now coming online as part of the next normal searching for different and various ways to not only make their presence known but also to offer the best experience for their prospects. Content marketing is a proven way to build an audience that builds your business. Here are some basic principles to note;

  • People generally don’t want “advertising” when making purchasing decisions, they want valuable information. 
  • It’s content that people desire and seek out, and it’s great content that Google wants to rank well in the search results so those people can find your business. 
  • It’s content that spreads via social networks, generating powerful word-of-mouth exposure for savvy content marketers. 
  • It’s beneficial content that is the best way to achieve what advertising is supposed to achieve but doesn’t do so well online getting people to know, like, and trust your brand.

 

Remember, content drives the Internet, and consumers are looking for information that solves a problem, not an immediate sales pitch. Think about how to create content that makes your customers’ lives better, then the trust, credibility, and authority that content marketing creates knocks down sales resistance, all while providing a baseline introduction to the benefits of a particular product or service. 

If your content looks like an advertisement, it will be overlooked or thrown away. Make your “advertising” too valuable to throw away by wrapping it in wonderfully beneficial, readable content.

The individuals and businesses that are having the most success online tend to have a high ratio of valuable content that seemingly has no sales agenda, and mixed with periodic promotional messages. They tend to build on a number of blogs answering any questions or allaying any objections they feel a reader or prospective buyer might have even before they realize they need or want to buy a product or service. 

You will still need a strong call to action to close the sale, the trick is to keep the balance right. Use your content to build a desire for your product and create a steadfast relationship with your audience, then ask for the sale. 

Producing stellar content for your marketing is great, but that’s only one part of the equation…

 

The Other Part Of The Equation

Your content must then be properly leveraged to help you acquire customers. Even great content doesn’t distribute itself. It needs a vehicle for people to pass it along or share it, discuss its merits, hash over its controversies, blog it, mash it, tweet it, and even swipe it. 

Social media is a prime platform to distribute your content along with digital media, and the vehicle to get your content out to multiple platforms across the internet is the next generation inbound marketing platform and social network, Markethive. But blockchain-driven Markethive is more than just a vehicle, it’s a place to call home when writing your content. It’s your property and cannot be confiscated.   

As Markethive moves forward with its integrations, and upon joining, you receive a (CPanel), control panel, and WordPress system built into your assigned domain, a subdomain of hivesfeed.com AKA username.hivesfeed.com. This way you control all your content, without the worry or hassles of government overreach, and anti-freedom regulations designed to stifle the start-ups and the small entrepreneur. And let’s not forget digital sharecropping…

Digital sharecropping is a term coined by Nicholas Carr to describe a peculiar phenomenon of Web 2.0.

“One of the fundamental economic characteristics of Web 2.0 is the distribution of production into the hands of the many and the concentration of the economic rewards into the hands of the few.”

In other words, anyone can create content on sites like Facebook or LinkedIn, but that content effectively belongs to the company. The more content we create for free, the more valuable the company becomes. We do the work, they reap the profit. So effectively, these companies become your landlord.

What if you moved all of your marketing to a site like Facebook? It’s local, it’s free to sign up, and it makes businesses feel like they’re doing something avant-garde.

But what happens when Facebook thinks you’ve done something that violates their terms of service and deletes your account? Or changes the way you’re allowed to talk with your customers?

“If you’re relying on Facebook or Google to bring in all of your new customers, you’re sharecropping. You’re hoping the landlord will continue to like you and support your business, but the fact is, the landlord has no idea who you are and doesn’t actually care.”

 

Build Assets You Can Control

Many content creators and bloggers have put millions of hours into their craft only to find it deleted and their internet presence and followers wiped out… myself included. But providing you have a safe haven to create and publish your content, then platforms like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, and many more search and social sites are all superb tools to add to your marketing mix.

The thing is you will want to spend most of your time and creative energy building assets that you control.

 There are three assets you should be building today and should continue to focus on for the lifetime of your online business or creative passion you want to share and continually build a following, which Markethive can help you with…

  1. A well-designed website or storefront with your own domain.
  2. An opt-in email list with a high-quality autoresponder
  3. A reputation for providing impeccable value

 

Free System – Free Speech – Autonomy

What makes Markethive different is that it’s built on a transparent blockchain system, the platform is completely decentralized delivering on our principles of privacy, transparency, autonomy, and free speech. Markethive is not spying on you, shadow banning you, or terminating accounts because of your opinions or beliefs. 

Whether you’re a Trump supporter or cryptocurrency enthusiast Markethive has no hidden agendas. We are a collaborative community that wants everyone to succeed in their own right. Furthermore, with the KYC and wallet coming into play soon, fake and hacking accounts that can result in the termination of an unwitting and innocent individual along with years of their hard work, will be a thing of the past and left behind with the social media of Web 2.0. 

 

Monetizing Your Personal Brand On The Internet

Monetizing your personal brand can take a considerable amount of time. Many aspiring bloggers and podcasters have the misconception that they can make money from their newly created blog or podcasting platform in a matter of weeks or months, but you need to build a sizable audience that cares about you and that just can’t happen overnight. 

Successful people across a wide range of industries have stated it takes tenacity, persistence, and resilience and you need to adopt a three-year mindset to achieve meaningful success with your personal brand. You just establish your voice, create that content, and keep grinding it out, year after year. Eventually, if you work hard and stick with it, you can gain enough critical mass to monetize an audience. It’s not that easy.

 

Monetizing Your Personal Brand On Markethive

By utilizing Blockchain Technology, Markethive is able to reward the hardworking content creators by paying you for writing and publishing your blogs instantly and continuously. This is all part of the micropayment faucet system within Markethive. Additional benefits include receiving MHV Coin by your readers which adds more value to bloggers who have increased subscriber levels.

Furthermore, Markethive pays you to sign up, it pays you to use the social media platform with every post and activity you perform. It also pays you to promote it. Remember Markethive is built on the Blockchain and this is why they can pay you and offer you the security and privacy other platforms don’t. This makes it so much easier to earn an income online while furthering your influence and building your personal brand with no fear of ever having it taken away from you. 

Go sign up, it is free to use all the marketing and blogging tools, get paid 500 MHV Coins on joining and enjoy the tipping feature. Yes, that’s right, we at Markethive “Tip” Instead of “Like”. It stands to reason if they tip you they like you. This is creating universal income for all entrepreneurs who are active.

The Complete Social Market Network of Web 3.0

Blockchain in China could be explored in diverse fields as many sense the necessity

Blockchain in China could be explored in diverse fields as many sense the necessity

The Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference(CPPCC),

the advisory body of the Republic of China, recently emphasized the need for the adoption of the blockchain technology in various sectors in the country. China is one of the countries to be recognized as one of the fast countries to adopt blockchain technology and implement it in various streams.

Need for Blockchain in Fresh Areas

The potential of the blockchain went recognised and the possible applications in all sectors were been analysed. The unique features of the blockchain attract various use cases. The representative of the National People’s Congress, Qian Fangli, stated the possible use of blockchain in risk control management. He said, “Make full use of blockchain to establish an intelligent risk control model.” The member of CPPCC, Cheng Jing also triggered the need of the blockchain in the manufacturing platforms so that they could be upgraded and transformed. The Jiangsu province of China which is known for its intelligent transport system has formulated 8 special action plans around blockchain including other contents.

New Blockchain uses in the Financial Sector

The financial sector is one of the main recipients of the blockchain technology and every day a new way of applying blockchain emerges. Chengdu University of Electronic Technology and Chengdu Jiaozi Financial Holding Group established Jiaozi Financial Holding Blockchain Research Institue.On the other hand, Intel and Ant Blockchain joined hands to use the blockchain to provide credit enhancement for leasing companies. One of the city, Suzhou is the first country to record a ‘blockchain + notary’ administrative law enforcement process record mode.

‘Promote Blockchain in Healthcare’ – National People’s Congress

The representative of National People’s Congress, Zhou Songbo emphasising the importance of blockchain adaption in healthcare sector said, “Promote the integrated application of emerging technologies such as blockchain in the medical system.” Blockchain can also be used to enable all the doctors to achieve identity authentication as specified by CPPCC committee member, Fang Laiying. Other developments in the blockchain space in China include two new moves,

  • Ningbo, a major port and industrial hub in east China’s Zhejiang province issued “Ningbo City Three-Year Action Plan to Accelerate the Cultivation and Innovative Application of the Blockchain Industry(2020 – 2022)”
  • The Blockchain Professional Committee of Hebei Information Industry and Information Technology Association was established.

Wrapping it Up!

Blockchain no doubt has the potential to transform any sector with its unique features. Sooner the features are analysed and adapted into the possible sectors, the more would be the development pace in the country. China too has recognized the blockchain’s power and wish to implement in all possible sectors and strengthen the economy.

China blockchain firms may lose access to US capital markets

China blockchain firms may lose access to US capital markets

Sunlight is often said to be the best of disinfectant.

For publicly traded companies, that sunlight comes in the form of transparency and reporting. Last Wednesday, the U.S. Senate took steps toward forcing Chinese companies to adhere to the same transparency rules as other corporations or risk losing access to U.S.-based stock exchanges. For China-based ASIC hardware manufacturers, this new regulation might be the last nail in the coffin for their U.S. capital market aspirations. It could lead to delisting for those already traded.

Controversy has followed many leading China hardware makers when they have attempted to list publically in the past. Canaan and Bitmain were accused of misleading investors regarding their financial well-being in the lead-up to an initial public offering (IPO). Online reports claim Bitmain omitted negative Q2 2018 info on their investment prospectus during its ill-fated first attempt at an IPO listing. A lawsuit filed by Scott+Scott Attorneys accuses Canaan of misleading an investor before their recent NASDAQ sale, which only raised less than one quarter of its $400 million initial target. Ebang has recently announced they filed for a $100 million IPO with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The company’s prospectus shows it made over $109 million in 2019, but it also had a deficit of around $41 million.

The IPO move comes two years after its aborted listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx). Chinese news outlet Sina Finance reported that Ebang halted that $1 billion IPO raise while under a cloud of alleged involvement in illicit financial activities. In late December 2019, 8BTC reported the company was under investigation by Beijing authorities. The bipartisan bill, known as the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act, passed unanimously. It requires Chinese companies to disclose if they are owned or controlled by a foreign government. The companies must also submit to an audit that the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) can review for three consecutive years. There are over 150 Chinese registered companies listed on the most prominent three U.S. stock exchanges. These companies are currently not subject to PCAOB audits.

Some organizations might look to repatriate back home to the stock exchange in Hong Kong or Shanghai rather than submit to this enhanced regulation. Proponents of the bill point to the recent Luckin Coffee scandal were employees fabricated $300 million in sales to justify the critical need for investors to know more about the foreign organization being listed. Alongside new congressional regulations, Reuters reported that the Nasdaq exchange is preparing to unveil its own new restrictions on IPOs, which will also make it more difficult for smaller China-based companies to get listed. Small Chinese firms often pursue IPOs because it allows their founders and early backers to cash out, rewarding them with U.S. dollars they typically cannot easily access. The founders can use their new Nasdaq-listed status to convince lenders in PRC to fund them or get subsidies from Chinese local authorities after going public.

Per the report, what motivates the proposed rules is, in part, concerns that some Chinese IPO hopefuls lack accounting transparency, have low liquidity, and close ties to powerful government insiders. The upcoming rule change will require companies from certain countries to raise $25 million in their IPO or at least a quarter of their post-listing market capitalization. It would also require auditing firms to ensure that their international franchises comply with global standards. Nasdaq will inspect the auditing of small U.S. firms that audit the accounts of foreign IPO hopeful. In any event, the future for these Chinese ASIC hardware companies doesn’t look for investors. Because of the market price stagnation of BTC, there is no demand for their products. Geopolitical issues aside, they built their revenue models based on the demand growing from a digital currency that has no intrinsic value or utility.

How Blockchain can change the business?

How Blockchain can change the business?

Do you want to know how does this technology work?

What are the characteristics of the blockchain that make it attractive to the business? What are the main application areas and projects underway in 2020? What are the points of attention for CIO and top management? Eefficiency, innovation and cyber security: these are the three priorities on which most of the attention of companies focuses today and in all of these the application of the blockchain can “make a difference”. We see below a brief explanation of what blockchain is, how it works and what the main application areas are. Click on Bitcoin Up to know more.

Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA)

If those described are the two main protocols, others have been created, partly a derivation of these, partly with totally new elements. Among the most interesting are the Federated Byzantine Agreement (FBA), developed by the Stellar Development Foundation (and used since the second half of 2015 by the Stellar blockchain ) based on trusted units (quorum slices) decided by the individual servers that together establish the level of consent of the system. The difference between public and private blockchain Finally, remember that if the blockchain was born as a public way to carry out transactions, Blockchain 2.0 sees the spread of this technology. And it increases the chances to earn more money. The latter are often the result of the creation of consortia for specific supply chains. We can therefore say that we have:

  • Ppublic blockchain: everyone can access and operate transactions within it or participate in the validation process.
  • Bblockchain consortia: the authorization process is delegated to a pre-selected group (among the main consortia there is for example R3 which groups the largest banks in the world). The possibility of joining the blockchain and of carrying out transactions within it can be public or limited to participants only. This type of permission blockchain is particularly suitable for use in the business world.

3 types of blockchain applications, from bitcoin wallets onwards

Today the applications of this technology can be divided into three macro categories based on the development stage of the technologies used. The Blockchain 1.0 category concerns all financial applications for the management of cryptocurrencies (regardless of the validation protocol used) starting from the historical (and which currently still holds the leadership of cryptocurrencies) Bitcoin. In practice, bitcoins are files that can be saved in each user’s digital wallet. Each bitcoin address in the wallet can be associated with a variable number of bitcoins. And each address (public key) is associated with a digital signature (private key), to make sure that only the owner of a certain address can initiate a transaction linked to it. The Blockchain 2.0 category extends the blockchain to sectors other than the financial sector thanks to the implementation of smart contracts The next step will be that of Blockchain 3.0 with the spread of (decentralized applications): a future in which we will all use blockchain technologies, probably without even realizing it, because they are encapsulated in the “things” connected to each other, without human intervention, with applications that will self-compile.

The “crypto-winter”

After the strong media attention received in 2017, driven by the increase in their price, 2018 is characterized by an unstoppable collapse in terms of capitalization. The whole Blockchain community coined a new term to define this moment: “crypto winter “. But winter hasn’t come for the technology behind cryptocurrencies. The Blockchain continues to arouse great interest from companies. The technology evolves, thanks also to the efforts made by the developer communities that revolve around public Blockchains. Meanwhile, the future remains to be written. In the exposition of this text we will therefore speak of Bitcoin blockchain (with a capital “B”), blockchain technologies (with a small “b”) and Distributed Ledger Technologies or the acronym DLT. So crypto-winter is person who is ready to earn by crypto money. He must aware about latest technology of the crypto and know how to use these techniques to earn money. There are many software which are used by the investor to earn more and more cash using the simple techniques and without doing any affords.

Can Blockchain be the solution to prevent/control future pandemics?

Can Blockchain be the solution to prevent/control future pandemics?

The effect of COVID19 on us is as plain as a pikestaff.

Hardly there has been any sector immune to the virus. We are not going to discuss the devastating effects of the virus again. But is there a way out to control pandemics like these in the future? Is there anything government agencies around the world could have done better to reduce the impact of the deadly monster we have amongst us today?

The Build-up

Blockchain is still in its early stages but its capabilities in various industries are not new to us. The amount of data that is generated every-day is beyond one’s imagination and it is only going to creep up. The way to succeed for most organizations today has been taking the path of digital transformation. Now imagine the amount of data that will be generated and the number of transactions that would be recorded every second of the day in the coming time.

Clearly, the next big change we are talking about is having the capabilities to handle this gargantuan amount of data. With so much data and transactions invites another age-old problem – The security of this data. Thus, BlockChain can play a huge part in every sector and it will be imperative for organizations to leverage this technology to cut down on their costs and operate in a smooth manner for the post COVID era. Restricting ourselves to the healthcare sector, Data is the fuel to provide the best care in Healthcare today and BlockChain could be the vehicle to drive us there. It can play a pivotal role in the healthcare sector and all the agencies involved in the healthcare ecosystem could look upon to invest in this technology to control pandemics of a similar scale in the future.

So how can Blockchain help?

In difficult times like this, a proper mechanism needs to be established to gather data and protect that data. Blockchain can be leveraged to collect and collate patient data more efficiently by the government agencies and by those who are part of the health-care ecosystem. Further, patient movements can be effectively monitored to guarantee social distancing. Since we are talking about blockchain, people need not worry about protecting their identity as it is taken care of by blockchain.

Currently, most of the data on COVID-19 is being shared through APIs and the data is being stored on centralized databases, making the whole system vulnerable and prone to data misuse. Being part of the blockchain system will allow the patients to selectively share their data that are important for mitigation efforts while not disclosing the entire information. The data will remain anonymous in the network and the patient will own it entirely. This will reduce the severity of a pandemic like COVID and help most of the businesses to function as close to normal, significantly bringing down the chances of getting infected from such diseases.

Another advantage a decentralized platform like BlockChain can provide is in the Supply management side. The Global supply chain has been compromised in these tough times and there has to be a way around it. HealthCare authorities, especially those concerned in dealing with medical supplies, are at times unclear on sourcing supplies without knowing the origin. Long supply chains cause problems with forecasting and Blockchain can be utilized here to solve the problem. Having Blockchain incorporated in the healthcare supply chain will allow organizations to break the silos and establish a sense of safety. This has already been embraced by IBM with Rapid Supplier Connect and its time all the players slowly implement blockchain as a part of their digital transformation.

Block-chain could be the missing piece of the puzzle in the health-care system that can help authorities to collect data effectively, ensure data interoperability, dismiss fake news, and prevent countries from hiding information. All the federal authorities can begin by taking mini-steps towards adopting BlockChain NOW! The above article is written by guest author Sushil Sali. he has worked for the biggest healthcare insurance platform in the US and is now exploring Blockchain use-cases in the healthcare and other industries.

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving; Bitcoin ATMs Mitigate Risk

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving; Bitcoin ATMs Mitigate Risk 

In one of the more overlooked aspects of the crypto ecosystem,

it appears that the bulk of illicit activities are shifting from hacks and thefts to cryptocurrency fraud and scams. CipherTrace, the crypto-surveillance, and analysis firm released a report at the end of Q4 2019 that revealed hacks and thefts had decreased by 66 percent in 2019 while fraud and misappropriation of funds surged by 533 percent. And beneath the COVID-19 hysteria of 2020, hacks in the crypto sector have been eerily isolated. Outside of a few exploited flaws in P2P exchanges and DeFi flash loan vulnerabilities, the headline-grabbing hacks of exchanges for hundreds of millions of dollars have been absent so far this year. Is the industry due for another massive hack, or are stringent KYC/AML processes, regulatory crackdowns, better security practices, and blockchain surveillance working? 

KYC/AML Improvements Are Reducing the Appeal of Crypto Exchange Laundering 

2020 is far removed from the no-KYC wild west days of the early-mid 2010s where anonymous altcoin casinos preponderated and the Dark Underbelly of Cryptocurrency Markets thrived. Today, bitcoin and the crypto ecosystem is becoming institutionalized with a surfeit of derivatives (e.g., options, futures, perp swaps, etc.) available on regulated exchanges. 

Most of the leading exchanges adhere to the demands of the regulatory regimes in their locales, whether they be in the US or some more obscure locations like Seychelles. Conventional wisdom would indicate that the growing adherence to stricter KYC/AML enforcement has reduced the appeal of major crypto exchanges for money laundering — a sentiment mirrored by CipherTrace’s most recent report. Many exchange venues are also embedding self-regulatory procedures into their business models. For example, exchanges are increasingly tapping blockchain surveillance companies to avoid regulatory ire when it comes to money laundering, regulators are dealing out enforcement dictates for AML compliance, and regulatory arbitrage is becoming harder for exchanges to manage. Even more grassroots access venues to crypto assets, like Bitcoin ATMs, are fully regulated under US KYC/AML laws. For example, Bitcoin ATM provider, Bitcoin of America (BOA), with more than 250 locations in 17 states, is a registered Money Services Business (MSB) with the Treasury Department. And the company’s compliance standards have already proved fruitful in mitigating fraud at a high level.  

For instance, in one case in September 2019, a BOA customer placed an online order for $500k in BTC. The transaction size raised the compliance level (e.g., identification requirements, etc.) along with increased scrutiny on the transaction by the team. Upon closer examination, the BOA team discovered that the customer had a restitution order against him in the state of California for a previous fraud scheme. BOA personnel subsequently notified the corresponding FBI office and alerted the agency that the transaction may be used to circumvent the restitution order. The FBI issued a seizure warrant for the funds, distributing to the victims of the previous scam. Bitcoin of America and other alternative fiat-to-crypto exchange services have strict command over fraud prevention. Wires and online transfers require ID And other personal info that increases in tiers in lockstep with the transaction amount increases. As the avalanche of KYC/AML processes continues to take the exchange market by storm, exchanges become less appealing for hackers. 

Gone are the days of absconding with $500 million anonymously. Exchanges thoroughly identify users withdrawing sizeable amounts, and blockchain surveillance companies like CipherTrace can trace and blacklist stolen assets on public blockchains. As a result, crypto hackers have turned into crypto fraudsters, or maybe fraudsters simply have their moment to shine. For example, debacles like QuadrigaCX, where roughly $200 million was “misplaced” by the founder, count as fraud. With reduced incentives for third-parties to maliciously steal funds from an exchange due to surveillance risks, inside jobs are becoming more commonplace. Inside jobs may be the new normal, especially when you consider the vastly improved security practices of most industry exchange venues. 

Better Security Practices are Forcing Hackers to Get Creative 

Unsurprisingly, many of the biggest crypto exchange hacks are inextricably linked to poor security standards of exchanges. Lousy security practices ranged from storing significant sums of customer deposits in hot wallets to a lack of multi-signature authorization for large withdrawals. Times are different now. Regulated custodians like BitGo are widely tapped by many of the leading exchanges, and self-custody digital asset management platforms like Ledger Vault are rapidly becoming the new standard. These services offer secure multi-signature authorization mechanisms, deep cold storage, and other conditional flows required to mitigate any potential exogenous threats to pilfer customer funds. Hackers are acutely aware of this dilemma. Naturally, they have shifted focus to DeFi hacks like the BZx attack. Flash loan attacks are likely to become the new normal as they essentially allow hackers to capitalize with massive sums at little cost. However, zooming out, DeFi liquidity pools and protocols contain vastly fewer aggregates of assets than their centralized exchange counterparts. 

Hackers will have to get creative probing DeFi KYC protocols, but the days of repetitive strings of high-profile centralized exchange hacks may be waning. That’s a net positive for the industry. Inside jobs are likely to continue in popularity, however, but that’s no different than the legacy financial world. Fraud is much more commonplace in banking that overt hacks on banking security layers, which may end up reflecting the new standard in the crypto ecosystem. Either the lack of headline-snatching hacks in 2020 is portending that we’re due for another big one, or KYC/AML processes and better security practices are working well. If that’s the case, look for more QuadrigaCX scandals than CoinCheck-style hacks.

IS CRITICAL THINKING BEING SUPPRESSED? 

IS CRITICAL THINKING BEING SUPPRESSED? 

What Exactly Is Critical Thinking?

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.

Ban Anything That Upsets The Status Quo 

Over the last few years, YouTube has made headlines with its incessant banning of videos and de-platforming of influencers’ accounts causing loss of income and online presence. Last year, Youtube de-platformed a myriad of ‘alt-right’ and so-called ‘conspiracy’ groups and removed these channels from the video streaming site. 

Youtube also started targeting cryptocurrency content creators and YouTubers who operated channels that discussed bitcoin and other digital assets. In late 2019, YouTube officials removed a massive number of cryptocurrency video channels for very little reasoning. The company typically just tells the person that the channel had “violated community guidelines.”

This week Bitcoin.com was also censored for sharing a video about their bitcoin mining pool. Bitcoin.com’s YouTube account was given one strike for allegedly “violating community guidelines”. This begs the question,  “Who or what consists of their so-called community?” 

When YouTube, the online video-sharing platform first started back in 2005, it was a community of people sharing ideas and fun videos with very little moderation and censorship. Now it’s looking more like the Ministry of Propaganda.  For the last three months, YouTube, now under the ownership of Google, has taken part in historic amounts of censorship regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. YouTube CEO, Susan Wojcicki said that any videos that were in opposition to the World Health Organization (WHO) narrative of the COVID-19 outbreak would be removed.  

Subsequently, Wojcicki’s ruling was carried out as many videos were banned that portrayed another opinion or fact that went against the WHO narrative regarding the ‘official’ coronavirus data. YouTube and Wojcicki decided to shelter the public from progressive ideas and data that just may have some truth in them because it went against the authorities. 

Since the beginning of this virus and the panic it has caused, we now have proof as more research is taking place from many respected scientific think tanks, and epidemiologists are now trying to tell the public that the lockdowns were very irrational. 

Despite the proof, Youtube has banned a number of videos that go against the ongoing fear-mongering narrative. When a video was posted on Youtube that featured Dr. Daniel W. Erickson and Dr. Artin Massihi from California, the video got 5 million views before it was removed. 

 

Youtube also banned a video called “Plandemic,” which featured Dr. Judy Mikovits soon after it was published on the online video sharing platform. Youtube, however, does allow videos that rebut Judy Mikovits, Daniel W. Erickson, and Dr. Artin Massihi’s narratives. The company has no issues allowing rebuttals that stay on course with the fear-mongering narrative.

Whatever the veracity of the doctors’ claims, YouTube’s censorship of unorthodox ideas in the name of protecting the public from misinformation is misguided and counter-productive. Sheltering the public from ideas, even bad ones, only makes society more susceptible to dangerous error. Knowledge is power and surely we should be able to think for ourselves and have the ability to investigate.

 

Across social media, censors have been racing to limit the flow of information that questions these new laws imposed. Facebook also conceded it had been working with state governments in California, New Jersey, and Nebraska to remove pages for anti-stay-at-home protests events that are popping up all over the platform. 

Ron Coleman, a prominent First Amendment lawyer said in a recent interview. 

“It’s the kind of totalitarian thinking and conduct that has cost millions of lives in recent world history. The fact that it’s being done by private companies and not government doesn’t change that.” 

 

The former head of biostatistics, epidemiology, and research design at Rockefeller University, Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, recently told the public that Youtube had banned his video that went against the lockdown, and over-reaction narrative after it gathered more than 1.3 million views. 

Wittkowski, who holds two doctorates in computer science and medical biometry, believes the coronavirus should be allowed to create “herd immunity,” and that short of a vaccine, the pandemic will only end after it has sufficiently spread through the population.

“With all respiratory diseases, the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus, and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected,” he says in the now-deleted video.

Wittkowski told The Post, saying he had no idea why it was removed. 

“I was just explaining what we had…They don’t tell you. They just say it violates our community standards. There’s no explanation for what those standards are or what standards it violated.”

Dr. Andrew Kaufman’s videos were also removed when he spoke out against the stay-at-home narrative and the data spread by people like the epidemiologist Neil Ferguson dubbed Professor Lockdown who broke his own rule after convincing Prime Minister of the U.K. Boris Johnston to enforce the stay at home rule. 

 

YouTube’s Latest Target

Now Youtube has banned one of Bitcoin.com’s videos for sharing information about their mining pool. The video removal was based on the company’s “sale of regulated goods” policy and the video allegedly went against “community guidelines.” 

The Bitcoin.com account was given a single strike, which gives the account a one week probation period. Two to three strikes could lead to far worse restrictions against the Bitcoin.com account that merely shares information and resources about cryptocurrency solutions. 

Bitcoin.com’s CEO Mate Tokay has spoken out against the Youtube censorship in a tweet letting the company and Wojcicki know they have been immoral, irrational, and illogical. 

 

Censorship tends to manipulate reality and it has engendered evil numerous times over the course of history. Social media platforms are private companies and they can impose any restrictions they choose, but what they choose to censor seems to be agenda-driven and in line with the status quo of authoritarianism. 

 

Critical Thinking Not Allowed

YouTube seems to ban videos that allow for critical thinking. Cryptocurrency is one sector that gains grassroots attention and makes people think critically. Censorship and the fact they allow fake news and propaganda certainly unveil the true colors of YouTube that it just may not have the best interests of the global community in mind.  

YouTube has banned videos that question the ‘official’ COVID-19 statistics because people are now realizing that a virus with a 99% survival rate isn’t as devastating as we first thought. As they scurry to remove the videos as soon as they emerge, it’s too little too late as millions have already seen them and the information that may just deliver a different point of view or perhaps even the truth. 

As FEE.org explains, “Youtube’s censorship of dissenting doctors will backfire.” By taking down the videos, YouTube has limited the extent to which that social learning can happen and insulated the error from debunking. If anything, YouTube’s censorship has lent additional credence to whatever mistakes they made by feeding into the narrative that the powers-that-be fear its truth. The debunking is being drowned out by outrage over the censorship. And the Streisand Effect (how censorship can boost something’s publicity) is causing it to spread even more.

As more people realize and get sick and tired of the tech giants’ antics the more they will migrate to other platforms that do want to genuinely help people understand and change the world, giving back freedom of choice and allowing citizens to think for themselves. Once upon a time, there was nowhere else to go but now things are changing.

Libonomy The next generation blockchain technology

Libonomy

The next generation blockchain technology

Every year, blockchain technology receives more and more fans who have appreciated all the advantages

of working with a decentralized registry. Moreover, a well-developed product on the blockchain enjoys a more trusting attitude from users who understand the reliability and honesty of such projects, especially when it comes to the financial sector.

Companies that decide to create their decentralized project will face two main problems:

  • The complexity of programming blockchain applications, which requires a high level of skill and relevant experience from developers.
  • Problems with scaling classical blockchains (Bitcoin, Ethereum), which will limit the future project both in the maximum number of users and in some technical aspects

Today we will talk about the new Libonomy Blockchain solution – a scalable, secure, and universal blockchain ecosystem that allows you to write Smart Contracts, create DEX, or any other decentralized application that thanks to interoperability can interact with other blockchains. The idea belongs to Fredrik Johansson, but it wouldn’t be possible without co-founders Richard Haverinen and Therese Berglund. Richard as a founder and owner of multiple companies through the years has picked up everything there is to know about running a business. Fredrik comes in with his unique ideas and leadership abilities. And Therese, being extremely structured, coordinated and with a very broad perspective, is the glue that keeps it all together. Collectively they form a strong, well-balanced team. So, it’s no surprise that they have created something as revolutionary as Libonomy. Libonomy is a fifth-generation blockchain, centered on the principle of consensus, regulated by artificial intelligence. Libonomy creators didn’t settle on using previously known consensus algorithms because of their significant shortcomings but developed their own, unique, error-free, AI-controlled consensus engine. Algorithms created as a result of a detailed mathematical analysis of AI, and controlled by it, are devoid of human intervention and therefore have an exceptional level of security.

Key benefits of the Libonomy Blockchain:

  • Better distribution of rewards;
  • Completely decentralized;
  • Energy-efficient;
  • Nodes are not required to have high computing power;
  • Very high TPS (and will increase over time);
  • Dynamically scalable
  • No security vulnerabilities;
  • Completely autonomous;
  • Interoperable;
  • Lower transaction fees;

Unlike classic DAPP development platforms, which are based on Bitcoin or Ethereum blockchain, Libonomy developers have completely solved the scaling problem. The network uses the power of all nodes, respectively, the computing ability of the blockchain will grow in proportion to the number of nodes in the network. An additional advantage over existing DAPP platforms is the adjustable block size. AI determines the optimal value and can change it to this parameter. Starting TPS is equal to 6000, which is already quite a serious indicator, but thanks to the principles of Libonomy blockchain functioning described above, the throughput can be even higher. The advantage of Libonomy does not come just from its speed, the fact it’s massively scalable or the extreme security: Libonomy Blockchain is also interlinked with other blockchains. Moreover, developers will be able to create DAPPs and write smart contracts using Libonomy’s interoperability capabilities. This is the first blockchain technology solution in the world that has implemented full compatibility between different blockchains. Thus, developers do not propose to abandon all other decentralized registries, but rather provide their simultaneous existence and interaction within one ecosystem. The same applies to smart contracts that will be executed in different blockchains.

Soon Libonomy will launch the first truly interoperable decentralized exchange. Trading from wallet to wallet, all information stored on the blockchain, absolutely no interactions with the middleman. Moreover, with the launch of Libonomy’s DEX their decentralized trading engine will be shared with the public as well, developers will be able to use their SDK and APIs to create their own DEXs and base them on Libonomy. Libonomy focuses on the current requirements for consensus algorithms and combines the blockchain development process with artificial intelligence. Libonomy developers are working on global interoperability in the world of blockchain technology. According to the developers, all further updates and improvements to the blockchain will occur without hard forks to save information about previous transactions on the network.
