Antonopoulos : "we all started out as very strong sceptics, but when I read Sathosi's paper, it literally blew my mind"

Bitcoin isn't currency, it is the internet of value and money

Waarom zou je je in de Blockchain kunnen verdiepen?

"At any rate, the spook spoke the truth: cryptology represents the future of privacy, and more. By implication cryptology also represents the future of money, and the future of banking and finance. (By "money" I mean the medium of exchange, the institutional mechanisms for making transactions, whether by cash, check, debit card or other electronic transfer.) Given the choice between intersecting with a monetary system that leaves a detailed electronic trail of all one's financial activities, and a parallel system that ensures anonymity and privacy, people will opt for the latter. Moreover, they will demand the latter, because the current monetary system is being turned into the principal instrument of surveillance and control by tyrannical elements in Western governments." - J. Orlin Grabbe

Waarom voelt de verkenningstocht ongemakkelijk?

Het gevoel dat je risico loopt met de bekendste blockchain: de bitcoin

Je lijkt geen grip op de technologie. Te ingewikkeld, te moeilijk, staat te ver van je af. Je moet vertrouwen op iets waarvan je het fijne niet weet. Je loopt daardoor in je verkenningstocht over dun glad ijs in het donker: één foutje en je bent veel geld kwijt en je voelt je een sukkel als het gebeurt.

Heel veel nieuwe verschillende systemen en technieken komen er mee met de de blockchain. Bovendien houd je het gevoel dat alles nog steeds in één keer verloren kan raken. Bijvoorbeeld als iemand de je enige password van je password vault afdwingt ben je alsnog alles kwijt.

Crypto value heeft nieuwe manieren om oude problemen zoals diefstal met geweld te voorkomen: multisignatures.

Blockchain

Blockchains work like giant digital spreadsheets shared by everyone in a decentralized network, and are used to do things like confirm Bitcoin payments. We recently discussed why many are saying the advent of blockchain technology could be as important the development of the Internet.

Nodes

Developers, miners, exchanges, wallets, merchands are nodes and they vote

Satoshi

Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin
The Satoshi Bitcoin Paper

Byzantine General

Satoshi came up with a real-world solution to a longstanding computer science paradox known as the double-spend problem, or the Byzantine General's problem. The challenge is how to send and receive money online without the need for a trusted third party, such as PayPal, ensuring that the same digital credit standing in for the amount being exchanged isn't being spent twice.

What is Bitcoin

1. It is a money system (capital 'B'), 2. it is a currency (Lowercase 'b'), a family of protocols that makes the system operate

Is it a coin (made from metal)

Nope

Transaction Privacy

CoinJoin is an anonymization method for bitcoin transactions proposed by Gregory Maxwell. The following idea is behind CoinJoin: «When you want to make a payment, find someone else who also wants to make a payment and make a joint payment together».[1] In case of such a joint payment there will be no way to relate input and outputs in one bitcoin transaction and thus the exact direction of money movement will remain unknown to the third party.

What is blockchain

1. It "stores" the bitcoins. 2. It is the Ledger that record the chain of events (transactions)

What is the Lightning Network

The Lightning Network is a decentralized system for instant, high-volume micropayments that removes the risk of delegating custody of funds to trusted third parties.

https://lightning.network/lightning-network-summary.pdf

The bitcoin blockchain currently enforces a minimum output size many hundreds of times higher, and a fixed per-transaction fee which makes micropayments impractical. Lightning allows minimal payments denominated in bitcoin, using actual bitcoin transactions.

Wat zijn belangrijke eigenschappen van schulden

a. Krediet op een financieel duurzame manier gebruiken: ik verkrijg extra inkomsten waarmee de schulden kan afbetalen
b. Consumptief krediet is broekzak-vestzak verhaal (micro) en op macro-schaal gunstig (fabrikanten worden gefinanceerd)
c. Hypotheken zijn nuttig, maar is ook een vorm van consumptief krediet: je moet het afbetalen uit andere inkomsten! (micro) Macro-niveau: we produceren niets met de stijging van huizenprijzen in de bestaande woningvoorraad.
d. Lenen om te investeren in financiële producten

C en D zijn vermogenstitels: het vergeten geld. Hier worden schulden aangegaan waar geen productiecapaciteit tegenover staat.

Future of Blockchain

Filmpje Antonopoulos

we had to recalibrate our world authority of opinion as a matter of content, not source. Not about who issued it, not about who distributed it, not about who had the big printing press.
governments no longer have the authority that is created by the ownership of the printing press, authority is now derived from the use of the currency.
souverenity by the users not by the printing press that created it.
currencies have an intrisic value by the use of it, as a means of exchange of stored value by the user, not by the authority of the printing press that created it
Many coins will emerge. Which coins will have monetary value for the rest of us?

NXT

What Is NXT?

NXT (pronounced “next” or “N-X-T”) is an electronic public ledger/network that allows people to make financial transactions without a trusted middleman.

The public ledger can also be used to record titles, deeds, diplomas, birth certificates, death certificates, drivers license, copyrights, trademarks, etc.

Data can only be recorded into the public ledger after it receives a majority consensus from all the users in the NXT network. The majority consensus is based on a specific set of mathematical formulas and not on human biases.

Once a piece of data or transaction has been recorded into the NXT public ledger, it can never be erased or undone by anyone.

The NXT platform (software) is created and promoted by a group of volunteers and is not owned by any individual or organization therefore anyone can download the entire NXT public ledger and use it for free without permission from anyone.

Coinacademy on NXT

What is NXT? Building upon the concepts of Bitcoin but completely revolutionary as well, NXT is a new and innovative approach to cryptocurrency. It is not a fork of Bitcoin and was built from scratch using an entirely original code base which in turn addresses many issues found with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

For instance, the bloated blockchains, not to mention, NXT solves a huge environmental issue presented by many other cryptocoin and the arms raised to mine coins with power-hungry GPUs or warehouses full of asic miners.

No mining? In a sense, that is correct. At least not the type of mining you are accustomed to. There will never be a NXT new generating. They were all generated in the genesis of the currency totalling one billion. The generated NXT were then dispersed amongst the early adopters known as stakeholders. These individuals took the risk of putting small investments of Bitcoin towards the creation of NXT. In return, they were all rewarded according to their original investment and are not dispersing NXT by giveaway, bounties and exchanges.

Time between blocks is one minute. This does increase the rate of orphan blocks, however it makes it more convenient for users of NXT. NXT does not use scripts either which simply accelerates transaction process.

Features I’m really excited to present

100% proof of stake

Reduced security risks such as fifty-one per cent attack and other vulnerabilities inherent to proof of work coins.

One hundred per cent green foraging, not mining. There is no mining, NXT do not need power-hungry GPUs or asic miners, just a regular PC and NXT to start foraging for coins today. Basically, you earn coins via transaction fees. The percentage of NXT you will potentially forage is based on the amount of NXT you have in your account.

Decentralized peer-to-peer exchange – no need to pay high fees on exchange websites when you can trade among trusted peers.

Decentralized DNS, not to mention a myriad of other anonymous solutions such as anonymous websites, payments, messaging and more to be build upon its core.

Coloured coins, also known as small properties. In simple terms, you can assign your coins to represent a physical or intellectual property; perhaps a business, investment or any other entity that has a monetary value.

Instant transactions while still being secure. That’s right. You don’t have to worry about the bloated blockchain. Trading between known and trusted peers can be done instantly.

Alias system – allowing for the assignment of aliases via an account to a website, an entity, phone number and more.

Let’s not forget multi-sig and other features to be developed by the community.

www.secureae.com founder Sergey Nazarov

http://www.secureae.com/ bedrijf

DE DIENST ZELF IS GESTOPT OP NXT! nu is Sergey bezig met http://smartcontract.com/

Sergey: Well the benefits of running it on the NXT blockchain is that the messaging capabilities and the capabilities… NXT was not made to be another payments Crypto currency, it was made to be a platform for doing things like smart contracts and decentralized exchange. So the benefit is, NXT was architected in a way to allow you to write other types of information into a blockchain very quickly and securely. So the quickly is 1 minute block generation time as opposed to 10 minutes or 40 minutes or something like this. So it’s down to a minute.

Real-time revenue sharing

Sergey: Real-time revenue sharing is a smart contract type that we are excited about because we think it utilizes the full potential of this technology to create trust between two individuals, namely, somebody who has a revenue stream – a verifiable electronic revenue stream that they wanted securely and verifiably distribute to somebody else.

So let’s say I’m a content site and I generate 10 million units and I make a hundred thousand dollars and I want to share my revenue stream with XYZ person under ABC contractual conditions. Let’s say you put up 10% of that revenue stream for 6 months, what you can do now that you couldn’t do before is every time an ad is served, let’s say it makes a dollar. 10 cents from that singular ad goes from the ad exchange to the smart contracts. So the point of failure that we eliminate in real-time revenue sharing is that the money doesn’t go to the person who owns the content site.

The person who owns the content site makes a legal request to the ad exchange, he publishes that legal request also in the smart contract and it says to the ad exchange “hey, for the next 6 months, send 10% of all the revenue I would have gotten to the smart contract.” Let’s say an ad makes a dollar, so 10 cents gets sent to the smart contract. There are 10 units of the smart contract and so each person gets 1 cent. But none of those people have the risk that you will get, that they will somehow increase the amount of ads that you show would increase your success in terms of revenue and they will not receive that revenue.

That possibility is no longer there. It eliminates a critical point of failure of trust between people for sharing a very valuable economic resource. And if we can do it down to the resolution of real time, why wouldn’t we. We have this really cool technology that can do this, why would we do less when we can do more. So that’s what we did.

What Is The NXT Foundation?

The NXT Foundation is a group of early adopters of the NXT platform who share the belief that the NXT technology has the potential to revolutionize how people make financial transactions and eliminate the inequalities of the legacy central banking systems and have volunteered to unify their efforts to promote the NXT platform with integrity and professionalism.

Blog1: Eyeopeners op m'n vijftigste

Sinds ik kan denken, heb ik al een wantrouwen tegenover banken. Als klein jochie ging ik met mijn moeder spaargeld naar de Boerenleenbank (nu Rabobank=RAiffeisen+BOerenleen) brengen bij ons in het dorp. Trots als een pauw loop ik met mijn rijkelijk gevulde Piekpijp het bankgebouw binnen. Na 10 minuten wachten (jaja, je ging op een soort audiëntie), en 2 minuten naar mijn moeder opkijken die de piekpijp had overhandigd over de balie, kreeg ik een lege piekpijp terug. Mijn moeder heeft buiten een half uur moeten praten als brugman om me te overtuigen dat dat bijgeschreven regeltje in mijn spaarboekje net zoveel waarde had als mijn piekpijp die vakkundig de nek om was gedraaid. Ik heb nooit meer een gulden in de piekpijp gegooid en het is nooit meer goed gekomen tussen Henkie en de bank :-)

Tot vandaag! Een bank heeft een rol in de economie. Ze maken uit het niets een bedrag aan OMDAT IK DAT WIL. En niet omdat zij dat kunnen. Ze willen het wel uitlenen natuurlijk (omdat ze worden beloond voor service) en verleiden mij daarom ook wel om te lenen maar sec genomen ben ik het zelf schuld dat de bank uit het niets een bedrag aanmaakt en daar vervolgens rente over berekent.

Tjeetje, dat ik dit nog ooit zou schrijven en vinden. Een echte eyeopener dus. Met dank aan Dirk Bezemer overigens. Banken creëren niet zomaar geld, deze beschuldiging heb ik een half leven lang onterecht overal te pas en te onpas geuit. Gelukkig heb ik tegenwoordig meer kennis over het wel en wee van banken en hoe ze (niet) werken. En heb ik nog steeds heel veel (andere !) redenen om de bank tot in het diepst van mijn ziel te wantrouwen. Daarover later meer.

Blockchain Identity

2014: This is a live hack at the Ace Hotel in London producing the world's first Blockchain ID card.

Usage Example, from okTurtles

With BlockchainID, users will be able to use a traditional username/password pair to log in to any website or service, and that service will be able to verify them using the information that's stored in a blockchain. It can be any blockchain that supports arbitrary key/value mappings (like Namecoin, Ethereum, NXT, etc.). Users can send each other end-to-end encrypted messages by knowing each other's BlockchainIDs in a MITM-proof way by retrieving information via blockchain nodes, thin-clients, or trusted servers like DNSChain.
