Happy Tipping Tuesday! Now that this sub is the main Bitcoin sub in terms of activity, it's time for everyone to get some Education and some free Bitcoin. Post here and get free bits! Bitcoin Cash will defeat the legacy banking oligarch system!

As someone who cares about Liberty and freedom, I have instinctively understood the importance of Bitcoin for spreading economic freedom across the globe. Being sick of the legacy too-big-to-fail central bank fiat bailout scam systems where they print the money from thin air, I saw Bitcoin as a tool that can really liberate humanity and help us reach our ultimate potential. The fact is economic freedom improves this world, and the stakes are very large. We are fighting an oligarch banking system that prints money out of thin air, holding back humanity's potential with their scam system that only works to enslave and not liberate humanity. In the past people fought for liberty and gave their lives on bloody battlefields. Today we fight troll wars on social media, but the stakes are quite similar, if not multiplied in this new technological age. By supporting Bitcoin and Satoshi's vision of a worldwide honest cash system, its one of the only ways to help lift humanity up to our ultimate limitless potential. The oligarch's saw this threat which is why we are under heavy attacks. They stole Bitcoin and the ticker, and crippled the system with high fees, unreliable transactions, and Trojan horse tech, but Bitcoin Cash adapted, survived, and lives on as the common sense continuation of the money ledger. It turns out that its not so easy to stop an idea whose time has come.
Bitcoin Cash is the true Bitcoin that follows Satoshi's vision of common sense and on-chain scaling. BCH is The Manifestation of the Honey Badger. Trolls will point to market cap and say BCH is losing and not the real Bitcoin. However they fail to understand the nature of the war we are fighting. Bitcoin is all about breaking oligarchy, as nChain's paper explains. We are fighting against a banker oligarch takeover of Bitcoin. Since they print money from thin air, they have us outgunned when it comes to market capitalization/price. This is what the trolls do not understand. To think that the oligarch bankers that control the money monopoly would not try to attack the Bitcoin system would be naive. It appears they have pumped the BTC-Core price to outrun Bitcoin Cash the real Bitcoin as soon as their trojan segwit tech was deployed. They likely will use segwit, strangled blocks, and Lightning Network as the strangler fig to usurp the system changing it to fiat legacy banking system 2.0. What they don't want people to realize is that Bitcoin was always the underdog against fiat systems. Just because they usurped the name and BTC ticker for their fiat 2.0 system it does not mean they are winning the war. Its a clever tactic sure, but BCH is still the #1 cryptocurrency by market cap in the world, they have shifted some shells around in trickery, but Bitcoin-BCH is still fighting as the underdog against the oligarchs as it always has.
Not only this but the numerous problems in Lightning are acting as a bottleneck for development on Core. All this while BCH development is soaring with things like memo.cash, blockpress.com, cashshuffle protocol, chainbet protocol, SLP token protocol, colored coins, tokeda, and much more. Now that we have solved the scaling issue we can finally build again. All this while numerous services like Dell, Steam, Reddit, Rakuten, Stripe, Circle, Microsoft, Fiverr, Satoshidice, Changetip, Expedia, and many more stopped accepting Bitcoin Core, while Coinbase, Bitpay, coins.ph, satoshidice, tippr, purse.io, dark web all are adding BCH support.
They thought they could use censorship to shut us up. But now we are seeing that free speech is more popular than censored cult subreddits. We are battling some powerful oligarch interests. But they have vastly underestimated the spirit of the Honey Badger. There is a reason there is so much COINTELPRO trolling and dirty tricks being done to Bitcoin Cash and its supporters. There is a reason they need to use vote manipulation, shaming and bullying tactics, censorship, and dirty tricks to try to get us to shut our mouths. The truth is they are terrified of Bitcoin Cash and Satoshi's vision, which is why they need to use such tactics. They are doing whatever they can to pen the Honey Badger up in sheer desperation and terror that it will soon break loose ripping them limb from limb and devouring them whole.
I would like to mention that the recent turmoil in the BCH community over a November fork with different factions fighting each other is on a lot of people's minds. Some newbs may also be wondering about what is going on. They may be falling into the Fear Uncertainty and Doubt that is being pushed by a lot of Core trolls, as well as some genuine members of the BCH community. I would like to point out that these disputes are actually healthy. We don't want a system where one person or group controls things. We want a system where people are fighting for control. Its an economic incentive system with different factions competing. This is what keeps Bitcoin robust and was the genius of Satoshi's design. We don't need to worry about the troll wars because we have Nakamoto consensus as the whitepaper says:
They vote with their CPU power, expressing their acceptance of valid blocks by working on extending them and rejecting invalid blocks by refusing to work on them. Any needed rules and incentives can be enforced with this consensus mechanism"
Miners will decide what to support and the community should respect it. Many prominent BCH miners are also meeting in the next days to have a discussion on how to proceed with the protocol in November. The miners have put in their work and investment and have earned their right to vote on new rules. Most of us trolls have not, we are simply picketing outside the polling booth trying to influence how miners vote. They may care what the community thinks, but at the end of the day, Bitcoin is about self-interest, so they may also not necessarily care what the community thinks. Bitcoin was never designed as a democracy 1user 1 vote system as people like Core and Andreas Antonopoulos think. We should celebrate the fact that BCH has many competing implementations, compared to Core's centralized coin with BlockStream Gatekeepers. We also have miner groups challenging developers. Since the system was designed for miners to vote, this is obviously much healthier than developer dictatorships. Miners have much more skin in the game and are incentivized economically to make the right decision. Often times people forget Bitcoin is an economic incentive system.
So after getting a little bit of education, the point of this thread is to post and get free bits, especially for newbs that want to try Bitcoin for the first time. BlockStream admits BTC-Core is not for everyone. But we have news for them, BCH is for everyone!.
Post here and get some free bits. Bits is the historical unit for Bitcoin, but it also went extinct from the high fees on BTC-Legacy. Bits can only be feasible on BCH the real Bitcoin with low fees, it just doesn't work on Bitcoin-Legacy anymore. Coinbase and Bitpay had adopted bits before the fees killed it and my hope is they will embrace it for BCH again. There are 1 million bits in a BCH. If newbs have any questions please feel free to ask in the thread as well and get advice on anything, from potential coin splits, to how to use the tip bot, and withdraw to your own wallet, or other aspects about why Bitcoin-BCH is good, and why Bitcoin-BTC is so bad.
Reddit usage for tippr directions are here: https://www.reddit.com/tippwiki/reddit-usage
Information on chaintip the other tip bot is here: https://www.chaintip.org/
I suggest using the Bitcoin.com wallet for withdrawing BCH because they have BCH as default. You may also want to try the Bitpay wallet, which has some added features like a shapeshift button to change your btc-segwits into Bitcoin-BCH (bitcoin.com has this as well), as well as an amazon button to purchase amazon gift cards instantly in the BitPay app using Bitcoin. And there is a bitcoin BitPay debit card option in the app as well.
In the BitPay wallet you will need to add the BCH wallet as a second wallet as its not there by default. So press the + symbol and create new personal wallet, then choose coin BCH and back it up.

Bitcoin Cash is the Manifestation of the Honey Badger! Post here and get free bits, its Tipping Tuesday! We will spread economic freedom worldwide!

Tipping Tuesday is a long tradition that originated in /bitcoin before the moderators banned and censored the tipping threads, and changetip went extinct because of Core's policies of strangling layer one transactions. There is only one true Bitcoin that follows the definition of Bitcoin as a chain of signatures in satoshi's whitepaper and that is Bitcoin-BCH. Ever since Bitcoin Legacy was attacked and usurped by central banking oligarch forces, they have had a policy of high fees and unreliable transactions. The Cult of Core no longer even advocates Bitcoin as Cash, but instead say its a high fee settlement system, and they look forward to $1000 fees. They have used censorship and propaganda, and dirty tricks like false agreements such as NYA and the Hong Kong fake agreements where they promised block size limit increases along with segwit as a compromise, and then backstabbed us in order to unethically sneak segwit in past Nakamoto consensus without giving the blocksize upgrade. The amount of slander and dirty tricks are near endless. I even have people impersonating me on twitter to make me look bad. These are the type of dirty tricks and COINTELPRO tactics being used against the Bitcoin community.
Because of this usurpation of Bitcoin, and BlockStream Core's policies, many companies and services have stopped using Bitcoin. Dell stopped accepting it, Rakuten stopped, Steam stopped, coinmixers stopped, Reddit, Stripe, Circle, Microsoft (for a time), Fiverr, Satoshidice, Changetip, Expedia, and many more stopped accepting Bitcoin-Legacy. Core said its ok because Bitcoin doesn't need to be used, it has "store-of-value". But some of us realize that Bitcoin gets its value from being used as a currency, we see the unlimited potential a free and permissionless money system has and we are not going to give up so easily. With Bitcoin Cash, our ecosystem is blooming. On BCH we are building and innovating again. We have been added to the biggest payent processors and exchanges like Coinbase and BitPay. We have innovative new products like censorship resistant social media on memo.cash and blockpress.com platforms. Satoshidice has been revived again using the BCH blockchain. Mixers and decentralized shuffling protocols like cashshuffle are being built. Tip bots are back and stronger than ever. We can finally transact normally again and continue the vision of Satoshi as a world wide cash system that brings economic freedom everywhere. BlockStream says Bitcoin is not for everyone, but it seems the Bitcoin Cash community disagrees and wants to spread economic freedom world wide saving lives and improving this world. It is our job to work hard defending Bitcoin, and spreading BCH everywhere.

Its a lot of work doing these tipping threads but we were being attacked with fake Tipping Tuesday threads by Core trolls, so someone had to turn up the heat.

Questions and Answers from OKEx AMA with Tron Black - 2/18/2020

https://twitter.com/OKEx/status/1228212766126661633
The AMA was a huge success! THANK YOU TRON!
If you want to see all the questions that poured in when they opened the AMA up for questions from the audience, here they are: https://pastebin.com/KVpyXmgu The Telegram admins had to temporarily mute the group because there were so many questions flooding in from so many people. A *good problem* to have. :)
Below are all the ANSWERED questions.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
[email protected], [18.02.20 05:09]
Here’s question#1:What is your background and how did you come to the idea to create RVN [email protected]

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
Sorry, I was locked out for minute.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
I'm just a tiny part of Ravencoin, and there are some amazing developers (Jeremy, Mark, Cade, and Corbin) that have been brought the new capabilities to mainnet. The core idea of bringing assets to a bitcoin-derived blockchain platform came from Bruce Fenton, a former Executive Director of the Bitcoin Foundation with life-long experience in the traditional finance and stockbroker world. Medici Ventures is allowing some of its developers to contribute to the project. I was fortunate enough to have the right background to help with this project. I have a CS degree, C++ coding skills, economics background, early entrepreneurial success, teaching experience, an MBA, and a burning passion for the crypto-space and how it can change the world for the better.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:12]
Thanks. Here's question#2: Why did you name the project Raven? What was Raven created to solve? What is the business model of the project?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:12]
The name came from Bruce Fenton. Ravens are clever birds with a rich history. Ravencoin makes it easy to create and transfer your own asset. There isn’t a business model for the project. It is a gift to the world in the spirit of Bitcoin. Medici Ventures has allowed some of its top developers to contribute time and effort to the project. Medici Ventures does hold some mined RVN, so it may be a win-win.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:14]
Thank you for answering. Let's move on to the next question# 3. What are the $RVN tokens used for? What gives it value?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:15]
Thank you for asking.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:15]
The RVN tokens are used to purchase your own token on the Ravencoin platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
Those RVN are burned.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
RVN is also used to incentivize the miners to secure the chain.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:16]
RVN is also used for transaction fees for tranferring RVN or user-created (your) assets.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:17]
Cool. Here's question# 4:In your opinion what is the unique "selling" point, or best feature, of Ravencoin?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:17]
This is like being asked "who is your favorite child."

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:18]
Except answering it doesn't cost children thousands in therapy so I'll give it a shot.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:18]
The best feature of Ravencoin, with the most unexpected results, has been its linkage to IPFS.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:19]
This was originally done to ensure that meta-dat about a token doesn't get lost like it has on other platforms like Counterparty.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:19]
The linkage to IPFS has RECENTLY been extended to include messaging, and memos.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]
You can now include information, even a PDF, or a video clip with every transaction.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]
This is powerful, and I can't wait to see how it gets used.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:20]
--------------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:20]
Quesiton#5 What are the advantages of using Ravencoin for assets tokenization compared to other blockchain protocols?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:21]
Wow. Where do I start?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:21]
First, the meta-data about the token can be recorded via IPFS, so everyone knows what the token represents.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:22]
Second, the token has a unique name which can help with preventing fake tokens, and allows humang readable "root-of-trust" for the token that isn't just 40 characters of hex (ERC-20).

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:22]
There explorers for assets, like: https://ravencoin.asset-explorer.com

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]
and https://www.mangofarmassets.com/assetviewer

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]
Wallets like RVN Wallet, MangoFarms Wallet, and Zelcore wallet support Ravencoin assets.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:23]
--------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:23]
Here's our next question from Twitter# 6: Does being fully community-driven blockchain have its own drawbacks for rvn? You know, voluntarism means no marketing or legal team.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
Yes, oh yes.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
But the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks.

📣Group is Off Commenting for a while due to AMA. Will allow back when Q&A session later. Kindly be Patience with us. Thank You🥰

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
It is just technology that people choose to use.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:24]
Ravencoin has attracted the right kinds of people, including donated legal help when it was needed.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
The lack of a marketing budget does slow the awareness.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
In some ways this is good, and the demand for RVN isn't reliant on promotion.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:25]
As other projects stop promotion, or run out of marketing funds, they are at risk.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
Ravencoin is just growing slowly and steadily as more people learn about it.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
Consider yourself fortunate to have learned about Ravencoin early.😁

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:26]
---------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:27]
Great!!! Here's the next question from Twitter# 7:is it apple to apple if I say that ravencoin is going to disrupt wall street just like bitcoin is disrupting to central banking?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:28]
At the very least, Ravencoin will help show the way that tokenization can improve capital formation. It is up to others to take advantage of these new tools, technologies, and features.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:28]
It might happen first in countries other than the U.S.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:29]
Look at the story of Blockbuster Video (former leader in video rental), and Netflix (current video streaming leader) to see what might happen in the future. Is Wall Street the new Blockbuster Video?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:30]
I see similar patterns of arrogance, but only time will tell.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:30]
---------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:30]
Here's the next question# 8: How will Ravencoin defend hashrate distribution (algo question) if there are important securities issued on this platform (double spend attack)?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:31]
Ravencoin doesn't re-org after 60 blocks which helps prevent double-spend attacks -- a feature called NLR.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:31]
Also, something to be aware of is that in most cases tokens are redeemed by an issuer which removes the incentive to double-spend.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:32]
Example: Let's say the token is a share of real-estate. The laws of the jurisdiction for the real-estate would apply when redeeming for dividends, etc.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
Also If the issuer is using the Restricted Assets feature of Ravencoin which have tokens that start with $, then the stolen tokens can be frozen.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
Note: Regular assets (not starting with $) can't be frozen.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
The issuer of the token should specify how redemption is handled.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:33]
--------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:34]
Thank you for your detailed answer. and Quesiton#9 How does RVN works? What problem did RVN solve? How do the Tokenomics work?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN works like BTC, because it is a code fork of BTC.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN lets you create your own tokens in under a minute. It is easy!!!

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:34]
RVN is required to create your own token.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
Heres' the breakdown:

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
500 RVN burned to create a root asset with a unique name. 100 RVN is burned to create a sub-asset (under a root asset). 5 RVN is burned to create a unique asset (NFT). 1000 RVN burned to be a qualifier. 1500 RVN burned to create a Restricted Asset with special superpowers. 0.1 RVN burned to attach a tag to a Ravencoin address. A small amount of RVN is used, but not burned to transfer assets.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:35]
------------

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:35]
Let's move on to the next question#10 Safety and security are always the most important things. So what is the security mechanism of RavenCoin to ensure user assets do not become the target of hackers?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
Ravencoin has a strong network of miners.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
Most of the original code is from Bitcoin which is probably the most vetted code in the world.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
We have run a bug bounty to hopefully find any flaws before release to mainnet.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:36]
With all that said, there are no guarantees as this is just source code provided for free that folks choose to run.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:37]
If you need absolute assurance, then you should commission an audit of the code. There is no Ravencoin company, just a GitHub repository and a lot of passionate supporters.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:37]

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:37]
Quesiton#11 Nowaday most investors $RVN simply focus on the price of the token in the short term, and not on the real value of the project. Can you tell us about the motivation and advantages of an investor $RVN in the long term?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
I can't speak to the motivations of individual investors.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
RVN is a great token with good liquidity (world-wide).

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:38]
RVN is used to incentivize the miners and help protect the Ravencoin asset platform, so it has a use case.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
RVN can be a store-of-value, and a medium-of-exchange.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
One of my favorite things about Ravencoin is that it is tricky to classify, as it has so many uses.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
I love seeing how people build using this technology platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:39]
Ravencoin makes new things possible.

[email protected], [18.02.20 05:40]
Here's the next question #12 Who are your competitors and how do you intend to thrive amongst them?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:40]
This may sound strange, but I don't see crypto technologies as competitors.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
The crypto space is tiny compared to the legacy systems we've had for fifty years, so I look at every project as a way to bring new people into crypto-ecosystem.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
If we add value, features, and capabilities, then more people will learn about the Ravencoin platform and what it can do for them.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:41]
The ERC-20 smart contract is an alternative asset issuance option, but Ravencoin is much better for most uses, so more education is needed.

Quesiton#13 What is the uniqueness of the Raven token? Why should investors (including me) invest in Raven?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
Ravencoin is a platform.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
You should evaluate the capabilities of the Ravencoin platform and ask yourself whether it will be used, and whether it adds value over other platforms like ETH, EOS, or TEZOS.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:42]
Hint: It does. I try not to provide investment advice, so do your own research.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:43]
Ravencoin is already a global phenomenon.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
South Korea has been onto Ravencoin for some time now, and I had the opportunity to speak at a South Korean Ravencoin meetup that filled an Art Hall with a waiting list.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
Because of OKEx, that awareness will expand to China.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
Our focus is building and education about Ravencoin.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:44]
There is no marketing budget, and we raised no funds.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:45]
The success so far has been completely organic, and Ravencoin has the best community of any coin, anywhere.

Here is THE LAST question#10 from Twitter before we accept questions from the Telegram chat. what are your hopes with the $RVN listing on u/OKEx Okex going forward?

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:45]
I hope the OKEx $RVN listing brings awareness of Ravencoin to new parts of the world.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:46]
The project is more capable than most people know, and because it was launched without raising any funds, there isn't a marketing budget.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 05:46]
It is up to smart individuals, like yourselves, to figure out what Ravencoin can do, and use the technology to make new companies and new projects.

January 3, 2018

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:01]
>>> A project's Technical development may not always be reflected on the price of it's token. What is raven doing specifically to increase price of its token?
I agree. And I think it is especially true in the case of Ravencoin. The true value may not be reflected in the short-term. The Ravencoin project isn't a company. It will take time. There isn't a marketing dept or budget, but through events like these, and podcasts, and blogs, and new projects building on top of Ravencoin, I think the value will eventually be reflected.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:06]
>>>> Give me some important reasons why we need to buy RVN token where in fact hundreds of project failed and it went to bankruptcy or even developers run when they collect millions/billions of funds…? Can you explain it to us

Many got burned during the crazy ICO phase of 2017. Ravencoin did not participate. Ravencoin is technology and a passionate community. If I get hit by a bus tomorrow (heaven forbid), the project will continue because it is free, open-source and anyone can carry it on, or contribute, or use it, or copy it. Ravencoin can't go to bankruptcy. It is code, and it doesn't borrow, or or have debt. Some of the core develoepers, myself included, are allowed to work on the project while working for Medici Ventures. This is a great arrangement.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:06]

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:10]
>>>> How does RAVENCOIN evaluate the importance of the user community? In the near future, does RAVEN have any special plans to attract and expand the community ?

The Ravencoin community is the most important and valuable part of the project. There are already clones of the code, but not of the passionate, helpful, and dedicated community. We invite you to become a part of it, and help expand it in Asia.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:10]

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:13]
>>>>. RVN is regulatory compliant project for assets tokenization in U.S. Meaning that the assets issued in RVN protocol is fine with the U.S authorities.

Ravencoin provides features that help U.S. issuers stay legal under the existing U.S. rules. I've written about how this can be done, but I would always recommend having your plans reviewed by a competent attorney. The U.S. rules are complex, and from a different era.

Tron Black, [18.02.20 06:18]
>>>> Ravencoin is constantly finding new big partners.Audience is constantly growing.What’s the secret to this growth rate?

A vibrant, and welcoming community. Technology that solves real tokenization problems. Easy-to-use, so anyone can participate. Not launching as an ICO, so it is fair for everyone.

Thank you everyone for the fantastic questions. I would like to answer every one of them, but it is after 4am and I should get some sleep. I really appreciate all the participation, and I hope your trading on OKEx goes very well for all of you!!!

Proof of Failure - "I'll get you next time Salty Roger" :-)

"actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea"
Just under 7 days ago I posted the following SHA256 hash to both the BSV blockchain and BAB blockchain.
I actually posted at 2019-06-16 20:00:00 but it took some minutes (as you'll see I predicted) to appear in the next block of the aforementioned blockchains, thus remaining a permanent immutable record.
memo.sv post Block Time: 2019-06-16 20:38:22 Block Number: 587160
memo.cash post Block Time: 2019-06-16 20:29:44 Block Number: 587318
This is verifiable proof that I held the plaintext to make this hash on that date. The hash as you can see is which is a SHA256:-
52f42a5a4c073a2a14ed76e5a1d356c4586e6f2dea2a91d9a3dcf5f57799442e
Just after posting to the blockchain this hash, I sent private messages to 3 members of this subreddit with the following text, and thus this is the reason why I am now forced to reveal the hash, as I expect them to take my words seriously.
It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things (as all I did is cryptographically proven) that I did this, however I wanted to so I would be forced to reveal the plaintext within 7 days. I won't name them, but if they want to confirm that they did indeed receive this message then I'll leave that up to them.
Hi guys. Look I am doing something kinda funny here, but for now needs to be secret. Here is a SHA256 hash, write it down!
"52f42a5a4c073a2a14ed76e5a1d356c4586e6f2dea2a91d9a3dcf5f57799442e"
If I don't reveal what plaintext is the source of this hash within the next 7 days then it means I am a fraud, and I am not to be trusted and I request I am permabanned from the subreddit, and all communications with me should cease.
This hash has been published on both the BSV & BAB blockchains as a memo message, as proof it wasn't created after the time it appears in the blockchains, and proof of immutability of content.
You can see it here (BSV):- https://memo.sv/profile/1gr5whAEV4ffA6df71JTdQ7gSNQWTkgnm Or here (BAB):- https://memo.cash/profile/1gr5whAEV4ffA6df71JTdQ7gSNQWTkgnm
And timestamp will be a few seconds or minutes after timestamp below, as and when message gets confirmed in next block on each respective chain. PoW!
If I happen to be banned from reddit in the meantime don't worry as hash reveal will take place on these memo channels within 7 days.
If this works you're all gonna LOL real hard cause it will cause one big massive social media shitstorm! And we all know the only way to destroy a PoSM shitcoin like BAB is with social media!
Cheers fellas! jim-btc 2019-06-16T20:00:00Z End of message.
I actually sent it to them as an image
This is all those 3 members have seen, and all 3 have confirmed, one with "I'll be watching" another with a "LOL" type response and another with a rather concerned "what's this?" type response. I gave them no further information - so now all reading this post know exactly the same about this all as they do - which is basically nothing, other than this hash 52f42a5a4c073a2a14ed76e5a1d356c4586e6f2dea2a91d9a3dcf5f57799442e must be something interesting.
So what was the plaintext behind this hash? What does it have to do with Salty Roger?
Well I'm gonna take some inspiration from Dr. Craig S. Wright here to add some tension... I still have a few hours to reveal the plain-text, which is in fact a computer program. We shall all see.
UPDATE
OK here it is: https://gofile.io/?c=FsGtJD
Go check that SHA256 hash.
Here's the code:
#!/usbin/env python # bab-destroy.py # Should work in Python2.7 & Python 3.x # Author: jim-btc # If you change any character in this code (including newlines so careful # Windows users - it will fail to reproduce the excercise! # This is BAB Destroy. Some code designed to make Salty Roger Ver, head of # Bitcoin Cash (BAB) look very stupid and get owned by cryptohashes once again. # # The BABies (that's users of said coin) seem to spout the mantra "Code is Law" # so I thought what better way to own them all than by using some code to do # it! # Purpose of this program is to generate a fake (unspendable) Bitcoin address # and to hash various messages. Hash for this program (hence the entire process # in the pwnage of Salty Roger will be published on both the Bitcoin Cash (BAB) # and Bitcoin (BSV) blockchains as "proof-of-LOL" so what I am doing here can # easily be verified as non-illegal and non-fraudulent *after the event* by # simply running this code and verifying all messages/hashes produced - to # replay the sequence of events as it were. # # A non-spendable address is used to demonstrate even if Roger was dumb enough # to send BTC that it is the equivalent of burning money - i.e. nobody can # benefit. Also for any legal eagles reading allow me introduce some Latin: # "actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea". Interesting case study to be made # perhaps regarding blockchains as immutable evidence. # The idea is the following happens:- # # 1) Hash of this program code is published on BAB & BSV blockchains to proove # timestamp that this effort was started, using memo.cash / memo.sv # # 2) A few community memebers from Bitcoin (BSV) subreddit are sent a hashed # message stating that there is a hash on BAB/BSV blockchain and if I don't # reveal how to make it within 7 days then I am a fraud, a scammer and should # be removed from the community - this is to ensure nobody can claim the # argument "jim-btc was just testing to see if Roger would pay" and to # ensure revealing of this code regardless of the outcome. # # 3) Roger recieves a message from me basically stating "Pay me 1BTC and I will # stop attacking your coin and community and work for you attacking BSV". # # 4) Roger publishes this message on /btc (or /npc as it's better called) # and tries to state that jim-btc is a scammer, and possibly that this is # a scam/community atack by the entire community of BSV. The idea is that # Roger basically publisizes this for maximum effect so when the truth is # revealed his own publicity owns him. An alternative (but very unlikely) is # that Roger sends 1BTC to the address - where I then publish this entire # message chain to prove (once again) that Roger is an idiot and has no # problem employing sockpuppets for nefarious purposes and has just burned 1BTC # for his very silly efforts! Remember if he sends any funds there - I cannot # spend it as you see that the public address has no corresponding private key. # (it's a fake address). # # 5) Bonus LOLpoints will be rewarded if this news makes it to Roger's Twitter # account and/or his news.bitcoin.com website as some sort of proof that # "criminal blackmailers are attempting to destroy BAB" or the now famous # classic quote they use "It's an attack" as they keep needing to invent a # common external enemy like Orwell's 1984 as some way for cohesion in their # destroyed and rotten "community". It is expected that as Salty Roger loves to # play victim he shall play victim to maximum effect. Let's hope so! # # 6) Program code is revealed. Orignal hash on BAB/BSV blockchains is shown as # matching the hash of the program code. Roger looks dumb, all BABies are # awakened as to just how easy it is to attack a PoSM (Proof of Social Media) # shitcoin such as Bitcoin Cash (BAB). The crypto world laughs, lawyers debate # the legality of this all - everyone is confused but most agree Roger has once # again proved he knows nothing about crypto and is easily spoofed. # # People read this program code and these comments and find out just how bad # things are with BABcoin. They sell the idea of "decentralized development" # when in reality Amaury Sachet (ABC node developer) bans Andrew Stone, LEAD # developer of Bitcoin Unlimited from any meetings. It also encourages BABies # to look at the ideas floating around in the dev community - such as spending # funding money on developer get-togethers when clearly the fundraising they # are doing is supposed to be paying for developers to develop. People are # encouraged to look into the transparency of all fundraising and realise that # this is not a sustainable model for a anti-business coin such as BAB. # # Once again I'd ask people to seriously debate the difference and the # narrative:- # # "Satosh added checkpoints to Bitcoins source code - checkpoints are OK" # -- the BAB narrative # # The reality:- # These checkpoints were added days/weeks/months after the blocks were mined # for pretty obvious reasons. # Amaury Sachet (shitlord dictator of ABC) added them within ~10 minutes of # blocks being mined and colluded with exchanges to use this special software # within minutes. That is not fair competition, this is not PoW. That is a PoSM # shitcoin and shall be destroyed - only way to do it is with social media! # # This program is dedicated to unwriter and Craig S. Wright (Satoshi Nakamoto). # # Read unwriters phenomenal message to all devs:- # # https://medium.com/@_unwritethe-resolution-of-the-bitcoin # -cash-experiment-52b86d8cd187 # # OK - let's get started... # # These are the only 3 functions we need to import. from binascii import hexlify from hashlib import sha256 from os import path BASE_58_ALPHABET = '123456789ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyz' # First let's make a public key based on some text, unless we manage to break # cryptography we will have no way of knowing the private key for this message # thus any coins sent here are effectivley burned (unspendable). # This message will give us fake address 1MCpARZExPsW5EmBMEYj2NoyUxaoWyZt8N BITCOIN_PUBKEY_MESSAGE = b'Roger Ver is an idiot, jim-btc owns him!'

13 Reasons Why EOS is a disaster

1.) ECAF ordered to freeze the hacked accounts, blockchain isn't immutable. many both inside and outside the EOS community aren't clear what ECAF, the main body tasked with resolving disputes between token holders on the network, is and what control it has over transactions. ECAF has lost it's ability to rule on the base chain after EOSNY stated that they'd no longer enforce off chain rulings.
2.) Dan threw out the constitution because it was socially unscalable. The constitution is being resubmitted based on the problems with ECAF.
3.) RAM over-speculation, it costs $5-$15 for a user to create an account. Whales cornered the RAM market. BP's had an open conference where they discussed a constant drip of new RAM to the system to put downward price pressure on the market.
4.) Centralized - just 21 BP's that can vote each other in. It's a plutocracy. It takes just 17/21 BP to achieve consensus. Block.one, who claimed to have no involvement in the launch of the EOS mainnet are now going to use the 10% of the token supply they own to influence the list of block producers. Dan also owns a large amount of the token supply and voting power. Some of these block producer candidates in the top 10 came out of nowhere. How they got in the position they are in is pretty obvious – they had a lot of tokens (or access to them) and voted themselves in. It's a whales' election. Also, exchanges are voting with their clients' funds.
5.) Cartels - BPs are already forming cartels (Huobi). There is the risk of cartel formation among the 21 BP’s, meaning they can form alliances to stay in power by mutually voting for each other in exchange for sharing proceeds. Cartel formation enables them to print money, censor or reverse transactions. The 21 BPs have also already voted to print more coin for themselves BPs are accumulating EOS and it gives them a stronger vote over time. Top 21 are currently earning about $10,000 more EOS per day. It is also possible for exchanges to use their customer’s tokens to vote for delegates.
6.) 5% inflation replacing TX fees (they aren't being clear about the trade-off ) BP's collect 1% of inflation, and 4% goes into the community savings fund. There are 21 active producers which share 50% of the inflation pool. 100 standby producers share the other 50%.
7.) if you dont vote within 3 years, your tokens get confiscated and redistributed too and you lose everything, can't just hold
8.) EOS launched without a testnet, huge security holes were found days before launch, the entire network shuts down if anything goes wrong
9.) Uncapped ico raising $4b and currently valued at $8b for accomplishing nothing yet. The $4b raised went straight to a cayman-based for-profit company called block.one as profit, which may do whatever they want with it. 25% of the $4B EOS raise is going to fund venture investing, some of it via other funds
10.) Contributor's and foundation used the ICO as an arbitrage mechanism for a year, raising $20m a day through abitrage trading scheme
11.) Public figures like Mike Novogratz, and Brock Pierce are pumping and shilling it to their followers because they own a huge amount
12.) An EOS BP is just a corporate-owned server. It can be shut down with a subpoena or by governments. It's not censor-ship resistant.
13) Block.one is probably avoiding taxes. Instead of moving funds directly to exchanges, Block.one tends to obstruct slightly by first moving them to an intermediary account, then a second intermediary, then onto exchanges.
Edit: (more reasons)
14.) Following the arbitration, one BP didn't get the memo and processed blacklisted transactions (also demonstrating lack of Byzantine consensus).
15.) EOS BP’s want to kick out BP’s that don’t properly identify themselves.
16.) BP’s can roll back transactions, meaning EOS is not Byzantine Fault Tolerant.
17.) It costs $10 in staked EOS to onboard a new end user on to any EOS dApp. If your dApp gets 1M users, that costs you $10M. This costs $0 on ETH. This is a MASSIVE issue. EOS has not publicly addressed it AT ALL. This is a huge blunder. Any dApp that doesn't want to go bankrupt will need to undertake extensive game theoretical ecosystem analysis, and incorporate it into their central planning of the dApp's economics. ethereum pushes costs onto users, while EOS pushes costs onto developers.
18.) Unlike most proof of stake blockchains, EOS does not pay out a reward to every person staking on the network; it only pays a reward to the top BP’s, allowing the rich to get richer. When you stake EOS you don't get paid, you only vote someone else to get paid.
19.) Block One shorted Bitcoin and ETH on Bitmex and dumped all their ETH at the same time on Bitfinex.
20.) EOS is bribing developers with incentives to build dapps.
21.) due to the EOS "no transaction fee" model, EOS usage statistics can be easily and cheaply manipulated by use of Sybil which programmatically forges identities and dApp interaction. In other words such statics are useless. EOS tx are free but EOS account creation costs $5-$15 each and when the network is eventually busier, will require more EOS staked to reserve resources. Block.one can afford a lot of $5 accounts with $4b. Hypothetically why wouldn't Block.one want to create the illusion of an active ecosystem. Isn't that what their "warchest" is for? BeTDice (largest EOS game) has 91 twitter followers and 800 Telegram members which does raise questions about their “7,969 users.”

cruzbit: A simple decentralized peer-to-peer ledger implementation. Currently ~100 GH/s nethash.

Hello everyone,
I'm a long time bitcoin fan/user. For years I thought about rewriting bitcoin to be as simple as possible. There is a fair amount of complexity to the canonical bitcoin implementation that didn't strike me as strictly necessary. It makes understanding and working with the protocol difficult. I had some time recently, so I finally decided to implement what I thought was the simplest version of bitcoin that could exist. cruzbit is what I ended up with.
Project: https://github.com/cruzbit/cruzbit
In addition to simplicity, I wanted everything I used to be standard. I wanted an average developer to be able to run cruzbit and immediately start working with the protocol and talking to their client.
Highlights:
No premining or any of that funny business. The memo field of the coinbase transaction of the genesis block is timestamped with the bitcoin blockchain's tip block hash at the time of its creation. The client currently has built-in support for mining with Nvidia ALL GPUs (now has CUDA and OpenCL support.) The network has been up for just over a month.
Any/all feedback is much appreciated. Would love to have some new miners join us. Take it easy!
Third-party block explorer: https://cruzbase.com/
Third-party site with tons of links+info and binaries (but we suggest building yourself, it's easy!): https://cruzb.it/

Weekly Dev Update #17

THORChain Weekly Dev Update for Week 12–18 Nov 2019

![](https://miro.medium.com/max/2880/1*Fy-NCZAKhgbZmE-iEIQChQ.png)

Recent Changes

Some recent updates to the protocol:

Update to Emission

The first iteration of the block reward scheme was announced in the previous weekly update. An immediate concern raised from the community was that the emission was too aggressive in the initial year and rewards dropped off fast beyond the 5 year mark. Taking Bitcoin’s emission as an example, the emission curve has been updated to target 2% emission after 10 years.
![](https://miro.medium.com/max/2384/1*gqBLvJOl2G4n3IHW1rViKg.png)
The Block Reward equation is given by the following recurrence equation: g(n+2) = ((R - (g(n+1) + g(n))) / x) / y Which evaluates to: ![](https://miro.medium.com/max/1624/1*ttpsRd7HUs2-7hvDGO6elg.png) where: R = Reserve, x = 6 (Arbitrary Emission Factor) y = (seconds per day / seconds per block) / days per year y = (86400 / 5) * 365.2425 The final curve thus has a Day 0 emission of 25%, Year 1 emission of 20% and Year 10 emission of 2%.

ChaosNet

The original plan for BEPSwap (prior to the Yggdrasil liquidity breakthrough) was to have it as a separate mainnet before launching the real THORChain in 2020 with cross-chain support. Now THORChain has in-built cross-chain support and a clear roadmap to 99 nodes. This means the mainnet launch will have public, community-run nodes at the start. The community has been fielding many questions about how to run a node, and the mechanics in doing so. Since the THORChain team will not be running any nodes, it is necessary to have a full-rehearsal with the community at launch. As such, the plan is for a public ChaosNet on 03 January 2020. ChaosNet will have the following key differences: * Minimum bond of 100k RUNE. * Maximum of 12 Nodes. * Churn cycle of 1 day. * Maximum stake amount of 600k RUNE total. * 2.7m RUNE Protocol Reserve to emit Bond and Stake rewards. * Hard-coded Ragnorök at 6 weeks.
Any member who wishes to join ChaosNet to get accustomed to running a node can do so, and will receive Block Rewards roughly equivalent to mainnet (25%). They will be setting up nodes, churning in, servicing the network and earning rewards. The system will hold up to 600k Rune, at which point it will refund any additional staked amount. The community can stake small amounts of real assets, prepare arbitrage bots, set up telegram alert bots and more. In short, it is a public rehearsal with the entire community across all facets (nodes, stakers, traders) so that everyone will have access to the same information and not unfairly benefit when the real mainnet launches. Additionally, the system will be hard-coded to perform a Ragnorök 6 weeks later, which will refund all the remaining reserve as well as bonded and staked assets. This will go a long way in re-assuring the community that the system can tolerate all levels of risk, including black-swan events, and that funds are safe at all times.

Internal Arbitrage

A new feature will be launched that will allow users to use internal arbitrage. This is an asymmetrical withdrawal to Rune, then immediately followed by a asymmetrical stake of Rune in another pool. A trader may want to do this instead of doing transactional arbitrage in order to exploit price differences between two pools the fastest way possible. Instead of an outgoing transaction being processed, followed by another incoming transaction, Rune balances and stakeUnits are swapped internally, being completed inside of a few seconds.

Fee-based Transaction Prioritisation

Currently there is no prioritisation to the order of transactions, all transactions are simply processed in order of time received. In moments of high demand of network resources (such as when there are large arbitrage opportunities and users are racing to exploit them), transactions will queue in the mempool. If the system cannot respond fast enough, then the reason for high demand will persist (the large arbitrage opportunity). The solution is to remove the reason for high demand in the first place, which is the large arbitrage opportunity, at the same time as collecting the maximum revenue for the system. As such, in the checkTx method (which can triage the mempool), transactions will be sorted and ordered in the value of the fee of the swap transaction. Assuming rational actors, the following transactions will then be prioritised over all others: * A transaction from an impatient swapper who is willing to pay a large fee. * A transaction from a trader who is able to arbitrage out a price discrepancy (and still make a gain).
This then means the system can collect as much income as possible (good for the stakers) at the same time as prioritising transactions that can arbitrage out large price discrepancies quickly. This then means swaps from transient swappers will experience a market price that accurately matches the reference price at all times.

BEPSwap Development

The team are working on 4 parallel streams of effort. Cross-chain infrastructure has now been merged into a single repo called “THORNode”. * THORChain * Midgard Public API * Threshold Signature Scheme implementation * Front-end Integration for BEPSwap

THORChain

Bug fixes, refactoring, as well as more logic around Yggdrasil funding. Additionally, node churn and the first part of block rewards PR was merged. * Add admin config event, fix tx out events https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/255 * Resolve “Select a satellite pool to swap out” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/253 * Include the thorcli volume for the signer. https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/261 * Rune Reserves, block rewards, bond units, oh my! https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/258 * Add mechanism to slash a node account bond or rewards https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/264 * Add add event https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/262 * Issue198 node churn https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/270 * Issue199 — fix signer doesn’t process multiple txout item https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/271 * issue194: only rune get refund for invalid memo https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/272 * Outbound — mark txout item out hash based on the coin as well https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/thornode/merge_requests/273

Midgard Public API

Database ported from influxdb to timescaledb (more maturity, better developer tooling). Endpoints built out include/pools and /stakers. * Feature/new endpoint format, refactors and general clean ups
The OpenApi Schema can be reviewed here:
https://testnet-api.bepswap.net/v1/doc

Threshold Signature Scheme

TSS was successfully implemented into the Genesis ceremony, with the focus now being on the key-gen and key-sign ceremonies. Multi-cast DNS was switched out for a distributed hash table to facilitate node discovery. * Issue4 — docker images and ci https://gitlab.com/thorchain/tss/multi-party-ecdsa-dockemerge_requests/5 * Fix a docker bug https://gitlab.com/thorchain/tss/multi-party-ecdsa-dockemerge_requests/6
A proof-of-concept is being prepared using BinanceChain TSS library, which was recently launched in order to make a decision whether to switch libraries. A go-based implementation is better for THORNode, since it is also written in Go.
https://github.com/binance-chain/tss-lib

Frontend Implementation

Bug-fixes and tweaks from community feedback. The frontend is now ready for implementation with the latest Midgard API. * Resolve “Write cypress e2e test for pool stake list view” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/bepswap-react-app/merge_requests/164 * Resolve “Update rune token icon” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/bepswap-react-app/merge_requests/165 * Resolve “Update confirmation modal” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/bepswap-react-app/merge_requests/166 * Resolve “Update wallet view” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/bepswap-react-app/merge_requests/167 * Resolve “Add tooltip for wallet connection” https://gitlab.com/thorchain/bepswap/bepswap-react-app/merge_requests/168

Timelines

The team are working for these milestones: * Feature Freeze: 20 November 2019 on-time * Audit: 20 December 2019 on-time * ChaosNet: 03 January 2020 on-time

A proposal for a decentralized social network layer capable of storing rich media

Hello folks!
I have been thinking about the idea of decentralised social network for quite some time, and recently the ideas formed what I think is a rather compete picture. In light of recent Yours announcements I think it's a proper time to share these ideas with a community.
It turned into a long post, and there is no guarantee these idea have a contact with reality, so forgive me if I stole a few minutes of your time.
Protools and standards that will help to understand the proposal (besides blockchain): Memo - blockchain-based base social network protocol, WebRTC transport protocol, WebTorrent JavaScript BitTorrent protocol implementation, BidDB - blockchain crawler by u/unwriter, Progressive Web Apps –– cross platform mobile and desktop apps installable without gatekeepers.
Overall, I prefer WebTorrent in my proposal instead of IPFS as BitTorrent protocol is proved to be robust for almost two decades, while IPFS at this moment is very young and overhyped.
What I propose is a layer that can exist on top of any Memo-like protocol, where Memo forms a base social network state, and the media layer extends its capabilities so that it's possible to store rich media files without any centralised hostings.
Here are the hypothesis/axioms I use as a basement for such a media layer
The proposed idea is based on a play of three actors, or a triangle of 'Original Posters' 'Moderators' and 'Viewers'. Below is detailed explanation of each role, and there are some sub-roles that will be discussed alongside.
Original Poster is anyone connected to the internet who is willing to share any kind of content with the world with only modern browser and a content itself in possession.
Moderator is anyone in the connected world who is willing to be engaged into a socially important role with only a desktop computer with decent amount of free disk space in possession. There is no need to ask a permission to become a moderator.
Viewer is anyone willing to enjoy the media without the need to be engaged with existing social media platforms.
Base technologies:
  1. A webtorrent enabled website with a support of basic bch wallet functionaloty.
  2. A webtorrent enabled website with a feed of op_return messages. Note: 1 and 2 can be implemented as a single platform. (e.g. instant.io x datacash x chainfeed)
  3. A webrtc enabled cross platform desktop torrent client hybridised with a bitdb instance
  4. A webtorrent enabled torrent tracker(s)
The flow:
The Original Poster uses a web browser to create a torrent of the attached media. OP registers the torrent on a tracker, puts infohash alongside a tracker url and desired hashtags into op_return and publishes the memo formatted transaction to bitcoin network. The progress bar shows the status of the 'pseudo' upload that's familiar to most non-tech savvy people. During that phase the content is in network’s ‘working-memory’.
The Moderator uses software to parse the op_return feed. The software continuously downloads all the media from initial seeders and presents it to moderator one by one. It does not open itself as a seeder until moderator decided whether this is a kind of content worth bothering. It's completely subjective decision and every moderator can follow personal strategy. It can be imagined as clicking the green and red buttons where the red one is clicked if the content is subjectively a complete garbage. Once the green button is clicked, moderator becomes a seeder of the content. Moderator can also 'reply' to OPs message with hashtags: every hashtag that corresponds to one of initial hashtags gives it additional weight. Every omitted hashtag loses weight. Some new hashtags can as well be introduced by a moderator. The deeper the history of moderator’s categorization activity, the more weight categorization transaction gives to hashtags (but this is a higher level concept and can vary from implementation to implementation). Moderator creates an internal queue of stored media and deletes the oldest content as soon as the storage threshold is hit (but some other policy can be implemented if moderator decides so). Described above is a level00 moderator who decided to judge the very unclassified content that's received directly from initial seeders.
If the collective speed of content approval is lower than speed of new content introduction, OPs is notified that it maybe necessary to wait for a prolonged time for content to be uploaded, or the fee can be included towards a 'super-moderator' address, so moderators who operate under a single swarm will priorities that content. That address can be a mulitisig where each moderator is a part of a joint account. Once in a while they unlock funds and distribute them in accordance to each moderator's contribution based on the number of 'categorisation transactions' – replies with hashtags, and there can be additional rules that prevent cheating such as only one categorisation transaction to each OP post is taken into account, or rules with some degree of centralisation that encourage seeding, such as the more the moderator seeds the more he earns from these fees if the swarm operates under a single tracker). Alternatively, payouts can be implemented as simple and centralised as existing mining pools.
There are Moderator sub-roles, such as a moderator can choose to only parse the content that was categorised to some degree (e.g. only nsfw content, or only non-nsfw content). The deeper the categorisation, the more precise is the kind of content that's fetched by a moderator, to a degree where moderator can actually enjoy the process a lot as he approves the kind of content he is the most interested in, akin to browsing chronologically filtered subreddit feed. Moderator can also choose to parse several 'categories' simply by 'subscribing' to several hashtags or hashtag tuples. The subroles can be named like moderator level01, level10, level11 etc. By replying to lower level moderator's categorisation transactions, higher-level moderators gives or removes hashtags weight.
The Viewer is presented with a feed of op_return media posts (similar to chainfeed.org), and the content is fetched on the fly from the webtorrent network. The moment the content is fetched the viewer becomes a seeder and continues seeding for as long as content is cached inside browser's storage. That way, the more moderators have approved the content, and the more followers the OP has, the longer the content will persist in a network's 'short-term’ memory.
The Viewer role has sub-roles as well. As soon as the user is engaged into that kind of social network, he can become a Loyal User by installing a special software on a desktop computer that is very similar to Moderators's software, but differs in a following way: viewer inputs Memo account identifier (which is a bitcoin address) into the software that only fetches and seeds the content that was liked by a user, completely in background. As the whole network state is a public information, each user can increase the level of loyalty by specifying the maximum 'dimension' of the content being fetched and seeded, where 1D is the content liked by initial viewer, 2D is the content liked by initial viewer and accounts followed by initial viewer and so on, up until around 6D, where mostly anything that was liked is stored within individual's storage threshold. Loyal Viewers can adopt different policies to restrict the content being fetched and seeded by blacklisting or prioritising certain hashtags, adopting some third-party priority/black lists, as well as specifying storage threshold. Contented that is stored by Loyal Users can be imagined as persisted in networks ‘long-term’ memory. The more Loyal Users are engaged in a network, and the more likes certain content has, the longer it will be stored.
It's worth noting that centralised torrent trackers are not points of failure per se as they are mostly used to pass the content from initial [browser] seeders to moderators. As soon as the content is approved by at least one moderator it can be listed on different trackers operated by different entities, and there can be a rotation of trackers if necessary. That said, each moderator can always re-register all of the content in possession on a new tracker, and the tracker can be adopted by web op_return feed providers. Moreover, the ongoing evolution of browser standards related to web-workers will make in-browser dht lookup a reality in a 2-3 years, which is likely a reasonable window to bootstrap such a network. OP can use some trackers only known among neighbours in particular area.
The layer is vulnerable to a situation where trackers blacklist certain content, and such content can be accessed by using a different op_return feed provider with different trackers, or a native app that will be able to fetch content seeders from the dht. Networks such as i2p can be used to create deep media layers operated anonymously. Also, as Tor is adopted by mainstream browsers (e.g. Brave) Viewers can access trackers through Tor, and such trackers are more resilient. These viewers will be unable to seed, however.
The layer is capable of storing any kind of content, but during bootstrap phase it will be most suitable for images, short video/audio messages, markdown formatted blogposts with embedded media. Each Moderator / Loyal Viewer can adopt different policies related to the size of the content being fetched and stored according to investments into storage facilities. If the proposed idea works, there will be parties willing to store some heavyweight content such as movies. If the layer is accessed from within a native app, it's even capable of livestreams, where the more users are watching a stream the more bandwidth there is for others to join, completely without any centralised content distribution networks.
As outlined above, the layer consist of short-term memory layer capable of storing content for minutes-days, and long-term memory layer capable of storing content for months and probably years. I use biological metaphors here instead of computer science ones as in my opinion the behaviour of this media layer resembles human memory more than computer memory, as ultimately it's a collective human brain decides what to remember and for how long. There is no guarantee that something will be stored at all, and at the same time some kind of content that's collectively perceived as valuable can be stored for a prolonged period of time.
Few words in regard to monetisation. Some heavily engaged players can choose to archive old content and provide access in trade for some micropayments. I see like the Joystream protocol can be used here with little changes such as adoption of webrtc transport protocol. Some different monetisation strategies can be discussed later as microtransaction technologies are more mature and well understood.
I am willing to form a workgroup of developers and creative enthusiasts who find the described idea interesting. I have been thinking about a possible starting point, so I have acquired the BlockPress source code with intention to distribute it in open source. We postponed the announcement a bit as the process of open-source release always takes time. BlockPress is an alternative Memo protocol implementation with a rather slick UI that's familiar to non tech savvy users - the quality I find extremely important. I think this can be a good starting point. If you think so as well, feel free to drop me a telegram message @taowanzou or [proton mail](mailto:[email protected]). Follow me on memo as well!
Sorry for any possible mistakes as English is not my primary language. And thanks for you time reading this!

Is blockpress.com censoring me!?

UPDATE: IT'S JUST A BUG IN THE SYNCING SCRIPT. BLOCKPRESS ARE WORKING ON FIXING THIS
https://explorer.bitcoin.com/bch/tx/60911357bc2029faea1e6a6fb95626ca740f74f66f44e2e0a55cbfc4831b039b

I don't see any fundamental difference in format. I've even got name changes that I've done that literally are identical on the blockchain (except for the txid hash). But only recognised if you use blockpress.com website
Help much appreciated. My goal is to release this python module on git-hub as an open source library for broadcasting OP_RETURN data. - So far I have memo.cash set up and running. But I want to release the two together so as to not take sides.
PS: also
https://explorer.bitcoin.com/bch/tx/bebf90b2af4531b2875d96189b78371f516179d38ac74a33137f56b475911926

I don't see any meaningful difference there... except that block-press "don't like" my one...
PPS: I'm now satisfied that its a syncing bug on their server. I've now been told that their syncing script has been known to crash...
Also: Chainfeed recognises my posts as valid
