It is going to be quite interesting.

This thread seems to be moving fast. That's a good sign.

What I'm working on is related to security. It's not cryptographic though. It uses a "ring of financial trust".

I believe it can solve scaling and oracles. It's quite interesting. The tokenomics are arguably more solid than DAI

Tell us more!.
I attended a Tezos MeetUp and asked the speaker what keeps him awake at night.
He said scaling. Tokenization is happening so fast and he fears running out of “bandwidth”.
He is transitioning customers from ETH to XTZ’s blockchain.

If Ripple hopes to service more than 20 large banks, XRP needs to scale.
1500 transactions per second ain’t gonna get it done.

Can you offer hope for bitcoin’s scaling woes?
Good luck with your project

A rotation out of crypto and FOMOing into the juiced stock market.
Retracements are always painful.
Remember that crypto is not the first to go Down this bumpy road.

In the 2001/02 DotCom crash:
Nasdaq down 79%, low 1100, today 8618
Apple down 85%, since 2002 all time low? +21,000%
Amazon down 98%, since 2002 all time low? +33,000%

Disruptive technology is turbulent.
“Buckle up bitches!”

Have you looked into Tezos (XTZ) rather than ETH?

Ropsten testnet.

I haven't looked into Tezos.

this is very interesting... I translated the Chinese governments webpage....

Quote:
On the morning of August 2, the People's Bank of China held a working video conference for the second half of 2019. The main task of the meeting was to convey and study the important arrangements of the Party Central Committee and the State Council on economic and financial work, summarize the work of the first half of the year, analyze the current domestic and international economic and financial situation, and study and deploy the key tasks of the second half of the year. People's Bank President Yi Gang and Party Secretary Guo Shuqing attended the meeting and delivered speeches. People's Bank Party Committee members Chen Yulu, Pan Gongsheng, Fan Yifei, Zhu Hexin, Xu Jiaai, and Liu Guoqiang attended the meeting. Chen Yulu presided over the meeting and made a concluding speech.
According to the meeting, since 2019, in the face of complicated and severe economic and financial situations at home and abroad, the People's Bank of China has guided Xi Jinping's new era of socialist ideas with Chinese characteristics as the guidance to further strengthen the "four consciousnesses", strengthen the "four self-confidences" and resolutely do In the "two maintenances", we will resolutely implement the decision-making and deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, further strengthen party building throughout the system, coordinate and advance financial services to the real economy, prevent and mitigate financial risks, deepen financial reforms, and continuously expand financial opening up. Take solid steps to provide a good monetary and financial environment for the overall sustainable and healthy development of the economy and society.
The first is to maintain a sound and moderate monetary policy and strengthen pre-adjustment and fine-tuning and counter-cyclical regulation. Reduce the deposit reserve ratio in a timely manner, improve the “three-grade and two-excellent” deposit reserve policy framework, increase rediscount, medium-term borrowing facilities and standing borrowing facilities, flexibly carry out open market operations, and maintain reasonable and adequate liquidity. At the end of June, M2 increased by 8.5% year-on-year, 0.5 percentage points higher than the same period of the previous year; the balance of social financing scale increased by 10.9%, an increase of 1.1 percentage points from the end of the previous year. In June, the weighted average interest rate of the whole society's loans was 5.66 percent, a year-on-year decrease of 0.28 percentage points. Create and launch central bank bill swap operations, with perpetual debt as a breakthrough point, and promote banks to replenish Tier 1 capital through multiple channels, ease capital constraints and improve lending capabilities. Strengthen the interpretation and communication of policies, and actively guide and stabilize market expectations.
Second, financial support for private small and micro enterprises continued to increase. Earnestly leverage the synergies of monetary and financial policies, expand the scope of inclusive financial support for targeted reductions, and relax the evaluation criteria for small and micro enterprises 'loans. Inclusive small and micro enterprises' loan growth rate reached 22.5%, an increase of 7.3 percentage points from the end of the previous year and higher than all loans in the same period. The growth rate was 9.5 percentage points. The interest rate of loans to private small and micro enterprises remained at a relatively low level. The average interest rate on loans was 6.82%, a year-on-year decrease of 0.58 percentage points. The difficulty of financing for private small and micro enterprises is significantly alleviated.
The third is to achieve positive results in preventing and mitigating major financial risks. Adhere to the full compliance with laws and regulations, use deposit insurance funds, establish deposit insurance companies, adopt acquisition and undertaking methods, take the lead and take effective measures to deal with the serious credit risks of contractor banks in accordance with the law, and grasp the degree of prevention of systemic financial and moral risks. Limit the protection of the legitimate rights and interests of depositors and other customers, and resolutely break rigid payments, and tighten market discipline. Prudently deal with the liquidity risks of some small and medium financial institutions. Properly respond to imported risks and financial market fluctuations, promote the establishment of a fast-track mechanism for bond defaults, and steadily promote the risk management of some key financial holding groups. The overall financial risks are converged and overall controllable.
Fourth, the reform of institutional mechanisms in key areas was further deepened. We will continue to advance the reform of interest rate liberalization, improve the interest rate corridor of the Central Bank, actively cultivate the loan market quoted interest rate (LPR), and further enrich and improve the central bank's price-based regulatory tools and methods. Improve the macro-prudential management framework and promote the supervision of systemically important financial institutions and financial holding companies. Strengthen central and local financial supervision coordination, and compact local territorial responsibilities for local financial supervision and risk disposal.
Fifth, the effect of expanding financial opening to the outside world has been remarkable. The banking, securities and insurance industries have substantially liberalized market access, and liberalized credit reporting, credit ratings, bank card clearing, and non-bank payment access for foreign-funded enterprises. China's stock market and bond market have been included in major international indexes, promoting the launch of the Shanghai-London Stock Exchange, launching international crude oil futures denominated in RMB, new progress has been made in the internationalization and cross-border use of RMB, and financial support for the “Belt and Road” has been strengthened.
Sixth, the level of financial services and management continued to improve. We will continue to track and study key economic and financial issues such as structural reforms on the financial supply side. Comprehensive statistics of the financial industry have been comprehensively advanced, and a complete statistical system for asset management products has been initially established. The examination and approval of corporate bank account administrative licenses has been completely cancelled. Strengthen the coordination of network security and informatization work, and the smooth operation of the payment and settlement system. The new version of Renminbi was issued smoothly, and new results were achieved in rectifying the rejection of cash and cracking down on counterfeit currency crimes. The electronic implementation of the second-generation Treasury Information Processing System (TIPS) withdrawal service has been fully realized. Developed and implemented a classification standard for financial consumer complaints. Increase financial precision poverty alleviation efforts and improve basic financial services in poor areas. China's anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing mutual evaluation report was reviewed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Plenary, and anti-money laundering supervision has made positive progress. Vigorously promote the use of non-credit data to carry out credit service for small and micro enterprises and “agriculture, rural areas and farmers”, and improve the effective supply of credit information.
The meeting held that since this year, the People ’s Bank ’s Party committees and party organizations at all levels have given full play to the role of direction, overall management, and implementation, and have steadily carried out the theme education of “not forgetting their original intentions and remembering their missions”. In-depth study of Xi Jinping's thoughts on socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, conduct in-depth investigations, examine issues, implement reforms, resolutely implement the main responsibility of governing the party, and unswervingly ensure that the party's line and policies are implemented in the PBC system. To effect. New achievements have been made in the cadre building of the PBC system, the construction of the central bank under the rule of law, the work of trade unions and youth, the service of retired cadres, and internal management. All branches, enterprises, institutions and related units are unifiedly deployed in accordance with the head office, closely integrating with the actual conditions of the region and unit, deepening reforms, strengthening management, innovative development, courageous and active, and doing a lot of fruitful work for the local Economic development has provided high-quality and efficient financial services and achieved excellent results.

They must firmly believe that China has a bright future and must fully recognize the tortuous roads. There are a lot of difficulties.

We must adhere to both quantity and quality. While encouraging the development of specialized financial institutions, we must pay more attention to structural optimization and quality and efficiency.

I am in agreement that online advertising sucks.
However, as consumers we embrace it.
There is very little pushback.
Cable tv was supposed to be “commercial free”.
Similarly, XM radio.
But when given the choice of pay per view OR advertising,
society chooses against subscriptions.

SurvivalistBoards is just trying to monetize their Internet forum.
Crypto micro payments might offer a third option.
The ability to monetize, but offer the consumer the ability to be selective.
For example...no advertising, but an online reader pays 1 penny to
read the “why is bitcoin at $608” thread.
Or 5 cents to gain access to all SB financial threads.
That could be a viable alternative if the reader has no interest in the other threads.

But as stated before, that can only be done with crypto.
Credit cards and PayPal will not accept micro payments.

Another reason that we find it difficult to predict the future is because we are preconditioned. There are exceptions, but for the most part teachers, politicians, and news media serve up the status quo at best, and push negativity at worst. Positivity doesn’t sell newspapers...”if it bleeds, it leads”.

Look at the negativity just in this thread:
- crypto is only used by criminals
- we don’t need no stinking bittulips
- unethically promoting a Ponzi

Shortsighted dismissal.
Purveyors of the status quo.
No vision of what could be.

Fortunately, every day the eco system chugs forward.
Every day, Debbie-downers get converted.
Digital assets will be an evolutionary revolution.

$100,000,000 is a lot of zeros.
But bitcoin (crypto in general) will rise in value.
What will an investor pay for a currency that is deflationary?
What will a refugee pay for the opportunity to move his wealth a crossed a border?
What will a corporation pay to move millions of dollars for just pennies?
What will Facebook pay to launch Libra so it can monetize social media?
What will citizens pay for a store of wealth that their government cannot print at will?

If governments and bankers are soiling themselves over crypto,
John Q. Public is going to start taking this eco system seriously.

society chooses against subscriptions.

SurvivalistBoards is just trying to monetize their Internet forum.
Crypto micro payments might offer a third option.
The ability to monetize, but offer the consumer the ability to be selective.
For example...no advertising, but an online reader pays 1 penny to
read the “why is bitcoin at $608” thread.
Or 5 cents to gain access to all SB financial threads.
That could be a viable alternative if the reader has no interest in the other threads.

But as stated before, that can only be done with crypto.
Credit cards and PayPal will not accept micro payments.
crypto may end the annoying ads! great point man! you blow my mind with all of this stuff.... you could easily write a book right now simply with the stuff you have posted in THIS THREAD alone! so there you go man... go copy and paste each of your threads into Microsoft word, make a book out of them, then CASH OUT!

What will a corporation pay to move millions of dollars for just pennies?
What will Facebook pay to launch Libra so it can monetize social media?
What will citizens pay for a store of wealth that their government cannot print at will?

If governments and bankers are soiling themselves over crypto,
John Q. Public is going to start taking this eco system seriously.
I think personally that a lot of bitcoin will be lost because of people sending it to invalid wallets and that is one of the reasons its going to skyrocket....

another huge thing about crypto is the ability to transfer wealth to family after passing without the .gov trying to take a cut..

and another thought that just will not leave my mind about crypto is how it is totally going to change the way our governments operate. Governments may even cease to exist! I think that's why many of them are trying to scramble now to make their own crypto coins.

the whole industry is going to be absolutely amazing and is going to spur many many jobs. SOOOOOOOO MANY JOBS!

I want to go to school for it right now and immerse myself into it more then I am capable of immersing myself into it now...

know of anywhere legit?

This is Deutsche Bank writing the below.
The 17th largest bank in the world.
Notice they say “crypto” not just blockchain.
(My highlights)

“Deutsche sees the potential in cryptocurrencies taking off as a payment method given the advantages of speed, security, minimal cost and "relevance in the digital era".

The German bank therefore concludes that a new, mainstream cryptocurrency may emerge in the decade ahead.

With regulatory support, their appeal and adoption could increase and eventually replace cash, given the desire of governments and banks to move to a cashless society. “
