Tips :
Tip #1 : If you're in a country that hate piracy like USA or Germany ( i think Germany have dmca or something ?? idk ) etc. stay away from torrent and stay away from http sites
( download Https Everywhere extension and enable encrypt all sites eligible option by pressing on the icon of https everywhere ) even if your browser included with it . because it will warn you if the site is http...
Tip #2 : FBI will not raid your house ( because fbi will not waste there time on you )
Tip #3 : https is your best friend because it's encrypted that means if you go to a https roms site
your isp will see (random numbers and letters) .com/.net/.org/.to/.site etc.
Tip #4 : install an adblock i suggest Ublock Origin
Tip #5 : install a pop-up blocker if you have a chromium based browser like Brave, Chrome, New Edge etc. i suggest this ( if you know a better one please give me the link ) poperblocker
Tip #6 The MegaThread is your OTHER BEST FRIEND if you want an rom head to the megathread and press ctrl + F and search ;)
Tip #7 DON'T DO NOT OPEN ANY ANY ANY .MSI .EXE/.DMG/.DEB or ANY OTHER FILE THAT you CAN OPEN WITHOUT AN EMULATOR THE FILE IT'S 2000% A VIRUS ( EXCEPT WHEN you DOWNLOAD RETRO ARCH [ or any other emulator OF COURSE ] ) AND DON'T OPEN .BAT FILES IT CAN DELETE SYSTEM32 FILE AND IT'S ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FILES IN WINDOWS
Tip #8 Emulating is Legal but Downloading ROMs is ILEGAL ( OF COURSE IF you're LIVING IN A COUNTRY THAT DMCA IS A HOLY THING ) ;-)
Tip #9 If you're suspicious of a file u can scan it on VirusTotal or Hybird Analysis ( you need to upload the file because it will open it on a vm in there sever ).
Tip #10 I recommend using a controller if you have a xbox controller just connect it to your pc and you're good to go BUT if you have a dualshock controller (ps controller )
use DS4 Windows ( if you have a windows pc ) ( I Know it's the fork bc the og creator stopped working on it in 2016 or somthing like that )
or any other controller .
Tip #11 If you download a rom and it came in .rar .zip .7z .r001( if the rom came with multiple files like .r001 .r002 .r003... you need to extract just a one file) etc. you can use 7-ZIP or Winrar ( don't worry 40 days trial doesn't end ).

Tip #12 if the rom came in this order rom.rar.exe don't think to open it and if you hide the extension file from showing from the file name it will show like rom.rar but it's actually a .exe or .dmg etc.

Tip #13 if you have a linux pc or a mac that doesn't mean you will not get infected even Temple OS have malwares ( if you don't what's a malware is just search )​.
Tip #14 if u tired of link shorters and etc. use universal Bypass

Looking for frontend developers and artists for building CryptoPandas during the SLP hackathon!

We’re looking for experts for building CryptoPandas during the SLP hackathon.
CryptoPandas is basically an adaptation of CryptoKitties to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain, but with lower fees and an (arguably) cuter species.
CryptoPandas uses SLP NFT1 tokens to represent the genome of a panda. New pandas can be birthed by anyone who has a male and a female panda. Only panda tokens following the birthing specification will be considered valid, similar to how only SLP transactions have to follow the SLP rules, albeit invalid token transactions may exist on the blockchain.
For the user, the process looks as follows:
For the implementation during the hackathon, the following has to be implemented:
This would require the following experts: - A Script/CashScript developer (that could be me). - An SLP-savvy backend developer (could be me too). - A general backend developer who sets up the APIs for the frontend and does the panda validation. - An SLP-savvy frontend developer (assuming WebAssembly is an option, that would be pretty much the same as the above) for performing the birthing process. - A panda-savvy artist who’s able to create different layers for different traits of pandas (definitely not me). - A general frontend developer who’s good at creating a good UX (absolutely not me).
If any of the above seem attractive to you, please write me on telegram: @tobiassan
The technical process looks as follows (review SLP NFT1 specification for SLP details):
While this scheme is quite complex, it fully non-interactive, ie. the only thing the operators of CryptoPandas have to do is maintain a pool of anyone-can-spend parent tokens. Verification has the same properties as the Simple Ledger Protocol, meaning to verify a panda token, a DAG check has to be performed.

Japan's crypto-friendly financial services company SBI Holdings will give shareholders the option to receive the XRP cryptocurrency as a benefit.

SBI announced on Friday shareholders could either take the benefit in XRP or another product offered by health food and cosmetics subsidiary SBI Alapromo.
Under the scheme, new shareholders on the company's registry as of the starting date of March 31 can accept XRP to the value of 2,000 yen (around $18), while those who've been shareholders for over a year will receive 8,000 yen ($73.50) in the cryptocurrency.
The Alapromo alternatives include cosmetics, health supplements and brown rice powder. All shareholders are being given a 50-percent discount on supplements and cosmetics sold by the subsidiary.
There is caveat for those who would take the XRP benefit: they must be resident in Japan and have an account at SBI's cryptocurrency exchange VC Trade, which launched in 2018 as the first crypto trading platform backed by a bank.
SBI has been one of the most active corporations in crypto and blockchain. As well as the exchange, it has a crypto mining division that recently was reported to be involved in potentially the world's biggest bitcoin mine under development in Texas.
The firm has also formed a joint venture with Ripple, which is involved in the development of XRP, to offer a cash transfer app called Money Tap. That project has seen participation from a number of Japanese banks.

We are building a secure mobile wallet system called AirGap

AirGap.it is a wallet solution, allowing the secure storage of secrets on a mobile phone with an approach of two mobile apps. Depending on the security needed these apps can be installed on separate devices or on the same device.
To get the highest security, the AirGap Vault application is installed on a dedicated or old smartphone, which will never be connected to any network again. With the enhanced entropy concept that adds video, audio, accelerator and touch data to the entropy seed alongside the device’s pre-shipped secure random generator it is possible to generate a cryptographically secure seed used for the secret generation on that very same device. This secret never leaves the device it was generated on. The private key is saved in the secure enclave of the mobile device and needs multi-step biometric authentication every time it is accessed to perform cryptographic primitives.
AirGap Wallet on the other hand will be installed on a user’s everyday phone. With this app, users can manage their portfolio of wallets and their valuations. AirGap Wallet deals only with publicly available information as opposed to AirGap Vault, which handles the private key.
How does a transaction work? Detailed step by step guide.
  1. Users can create a new transaction with an address, amount and a fee in AirGap Wallet.
  2. A QR code with this transaction is generated.
  3. This QR code is scanned with AirGap Vault, ensuring one-way communication only with QR codes.
  4. To sign the transaction the secure enclave is accessed with biometric authentication.
  5. The signed transaction is displayed in a QR code.
  6. The QR code is scanned by AirGap Wallet and broadcasted to the blockchain.
What if I want to manage smaller amounts?
AirGap Vault and AirGap Wallet can also be installed on the same device. In this case, the communication between the two apps works with app switching through an URL scheme. This allows the two apps to be entirely encapsulated, which is crucial: For example, AirGap Vault does not have any network permissions and thus is unable to send information out over the network, guaranteed by the operating systems sandboxing.
Which coins and token do you support?
Currently we support the Aeternity (AE) ERC20 Token, Ethereum and Bitcoin. We plan to extend this list in the future. These are all managed by the same private key/mnemonic secret.
We would be more than happy to get your feedback, comments and suggestions. You can also find more information on AirGap.it or on our Telegram channel.
Test our first version of AirGap Vault Android and AirGap Wallet Android. The iOS versions are currently in review, reach out to test it over Testflight.

Most talked about and upvoted cryptos in r/cryptocurrency, week ending 2018-01-19

tl;dr: (skip to “Trending Cryptos”, esp. if you've already read the intro from my post last week)
INTRO
Like most of us here, I’ve been following the posts on this subreddit diligently, and have been able to make some good crypto investments from all the shilling, discussion, and even fud that happens here!
I don’t have enough time to read everything and constantly check the reddit app, but I still don’t want to miss out on opportunities that come from a crypto being talked a lot about on here.
So I developed a program for myself that collects data on the cryptos that are being talked about most (both in terms of number of posts, and total number of upvotes) on cryptocurrency and altcoin. I can quickly browse the headlines of the top posts it collects, as well as see at a glance which cryptos are “trending” or “buzzing” on the subreddits in the recent weeks. The program also pulls in Coinmarketcap API data, like current market cap and 7 day price change. Aggregating all this data automatically has saved me a lot of time and allowed me to focus my research efforts on the cryptos that I think could have the highest potential e.g. low market cap, recently “buzzing” cryptos on cryptocurrency and altcoin.
I’ve decided to share the outputs of my program, as well as some highlights I’ve written, here for the benefit of this subreddit (and may do so periodically). Let me know if you have any feedback, questions, or suggestions, always looking to improve and share more interesting data here!
TRENDING CRYPTOS
Highlights:
  1. BitConnect lost almost all its value this past week, with a large increase in the number of posts, and the popularity of those posts, about it. BitConnect's increase in buzz is almost entirely attributable to the community pouncing on it for being a scam / pyramid scheme.
  2. COSS and Aigang were lower market cap coins that fell in price, but experienced a modest increase in buzz. Some continue to remain optimistic about the prospects of COSS, and there have been several posts reviewing Aigang as more and more people learn about it.
  3. NEO was the only coin to have an increase in price this past week. Buzz for NEO is still remaining steady, at the top of the list in terms of both post count and score/popularity.
(inf means infinity, which occurs when a number is divided by zero i.e. a week over week change number is calculated when the week before last week had a zero value)

INTRODUCING QUANTOCOIN

Blockchain enables new ways of exchanging value securely while ensuring a reliable transaction. It enables people to meter excess capacity and facilitates non-traditional ways of generating income. Despite all the benefits, there are some challenges that the technology needs to address, I will talk about some of these challenges:
Because of all the hype surrounding Bitcoin and other digital currencies, blockchain started appearing like a pyramid scheme.
The technology is yet to mature and is susceptible to capacity problems, system failure, unanticipated bugs, and perhaps most damaging, the huge disappointment of technically unsophisticated users.
The bitcoin blockchain lacks transactional capacity. Some suggest that the way to mitigate this is by using other consensus algorithms. Another way is to use a sidechain which is a fork of a larger blockchain like bitcoin, while using the parent blockchain’s infrastructure.
Transactions on the blockchain are immutable which creates a system that is a bit sociopathic. Immutability is a double edged sword.
Much work needs to be done in basic interface and experience. A bitcoin address is an alphanumeric code. You don’t type an IP address to access a website, why would you then type an alphanumeric code to access a bitcoin wallet.
For these reasons stated up here, the QUANTOCOIN platform is birthed so as to reshape the blockchain ecosystem and the digital economy world at large where financial banking activities are concerned!

Here is the vision statement of this project; a cryptocurrency must be accepted by the masses, so it can develop its revolutionary potential. QUANTOCOIN aims to solve problems associated with the old-fashion banking system. The present financial system is supported by large-scale financial institutions. QUANTOCOIN is a platform for the future of funding that is built on top of the Waves blockchain. It accelerates the growth of unbanked people by offering tools and services that save both time and resources.

HOW QUANTOCOIN WORKS

QUANTOCOIN has developed a next-generation model for the future of financial services and digital banking. This model uses Blockchain technology along with smartphones, as well as a new kind of bio-identification system which will be used to ensure safe and secure accounts for each user. This is a project to develop the future of the crypto-financial world. Its primary goal is to integrate and connect QTC into the traditional financial world and to create a single gateway through QTC platform for users, traders, investors and financial institutions with a whole range of add-on services.
QTC bank with QTC banking platform as the final stage of QTC project will bring solution by providing cryptocurrencies to mainstream everyday users.
Watch this short explainer video below that dive into the problem the team is solving with the QUANTOCOIN platform project, focusing more on how it is being done and why you should join what it is that the team members are building for the betterment of the ecosystem at large. Enjoy Watching!
The QTC mobile App will be made available for download via the iOS or Android marketplace and customers will finally be able to use cryptocurrencies to pay for any fiat-based goods or services instantly, easily and immediately on any POS terminals with NFC technology, QR code or through our qtcBeacons.

THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF QUANTOCOIN

Below are some good and special features of QUANTOCOIN that distinguish this project from any other;
  • qtcBEACON: A BLE beacon is a small device that is usually powered by battery or USB which emits a Bluetooth Low Energy signal. A modern smartphone in the vicinity can pick up the signal being emitted by the beacon to deliver quick, safe and easy mobile-based proximity payment solutions. Beacon-based payment apps is also phone agnostic, thus making it practically accessible to any smartphone user.
  • QR CODE: Quick-Response codes have the set of ubiquity that NFC lacks. They work a bit like old fashion barcodes, but they are digital and give them the power to enable you to complete mobile payments.
  • NFC: Near Field Communication, is at a very basic level simply contactless communication between two devices. In regard to payment processing, it is the technology that enables your phone to communicate with the payment terminal (POS) to initiate a transaction.
  • Lending ProtocolFirst instant cash application: QTC Lending Protocol is the next step of the successful development of revolutionary QTC platform that provides the immediate cash backed with cryptocurrency pool. Contributors can now use the QTC mobile app to hold/store their crypto assets without the need to sell them.
End-users are allowed to leverage all their crypto-assets (QTC, BTC, ETH etc.) to instantly obtain fiat cash which can be spent through payment card and cashless that is contactless QTC mobile app. Within this lending period, the contributor’s asset portfolio is used as collateral, dynamically and instantly managed, giving the opportunity for profit and long-term growth of the portfolio.

Most talked about and upvoted cryptos in r/altcoin and r/cryptocurrency, week ending 2018-01-19

tl;dr: (skip to “Trending Cryptos”, esp. if you've already read the intro from my post last week)
INTRO
Like most of us here, I’ve been following the posts on this subreddit diligently, and have been able to make some good crypto investments from all the shilling, discussion, and even fud that happens here!
I don’t have enough time to read everything and constantly check the reddit app, but I still don’t want to miss out on opportunities that come from a crypto being talked a lot about on here.
So I developed a program for myself that collects data on the cryptos that are being talked about most (both in terms of number of posts, and total number of upvotes) on cryptocurrency and altcoin. I can quickly browse the headlines of the top posts it collects, as well as see at a glance which cryptos are “trending” or “buzzing” on the subreddits in the recent weeks. The program also pulls in Coinmarketcap API data, like current market cap and 7 day price change. Aggregating all this data automatically has saved me a lot of time and allowed me to focus my research efforts on the cryptos that I think could have the highest potential e.g. low market cap, recently “buzzing” cryptos on cryptocurrency and altcoin.
I’ve decided to share the outputs of my program, as well as some highlights I’ve written, here for the benefit of this subreddit (and may do so periodically). Let me know if you have any feedback, questions, or suggestions, always looking to improve and share more interesting data here!
TRENDING CRYPTOS
Highlights:
  1. BitConnect lost almost all its value this past week, with a large increase in the number of posts, and the popularity of those posts, about it. BitConnect's increase in buzz is almost entirely attributable to the community pouncing on it for being a scam / pyramid scheme.
  2. COSS and Aigang were lower market cap coins that fell in price, but experienced a modest increase in buzz. Some continue to remain optimistic about the prospects of COSS, and there have been several posts reviewing Aigang as more and more people learn about it.
  3. NEO was the only coin to have an increase in price this past week. Buzz for NEO is still remaining steady, at the top of the list in terms of both post count and score/popularity.
(inf means infinity, which occurs when a number is divided by zero i.e. a week over week change number is calculated when the week before last week had a zero value)

We are building a secure mobile wallet system called AirGap

AirGap.it is a wallet solution, allowing the secure storage of secrets on a mobile phone with an approach of two mobile apps. Depending on the security needed these apps can be installed on separate devices or on the same device.
To get the highest security, the AirGap Vault application is installed on a dedicated or old smartphone, which will never be connected to any network again. With the enhanced entropy concept that adds video, audio, accelerator and touch data to the entropy seed alongside the device’s pre-shipped secure random generator it is possible to generate a cryptographically secure seed used for the secret generation on that very same device. This secret never leaves the device it was generated on. The private key is saved in the secure enclave of the mobile device and needs multi-step biometric authentication every time it is accessed to perform cryptographic primitives.
AirGap Wallet on the other hand will be installed on a user’s everyday phone. With this app, users can manage their portfolio of wallets and their valuations. AirGap Wallet deals only with publicly available information as opposed to AirGap Vault, which handles the private key.
How does a transaction work? Detailed step by step guide.
  1. Users can create a new transaction with an address, amount and a fee in AirGap Wallet.
  2. A QR code with this transaction is generated.
  3. This QR code is scanned with AirGap Vault, ensuring one-way communication only with QR codes.
  4. To sign the transaction the secure enclave is accessed with biometric authentication.
  5. The signed transaction is displayed in a QR code.
  6. The QR code is scanned by AirGap Wallet and broadcasted to the blockchain.
What if I want to manage smaller amounts?
AirGap Vault and AirGap Wallet can also be installed on the same device. In this case, the communication between the two apps works with app switching through an URL scheme. This allows the two apps to be entirely encapsulated, which is crucial: For example, AirGap Vault does not have any network permissions and thus is unable to send information out over the network, guaranteed by the operating systems sandboxing.
Which coins and token do you support?
Currently we support the Aeternity (AE) ERC20 Token, Ethereum and Bitcoin. We plan to extend this list in the future. These are all managed by the same private key/mnemonic secret.
We would be more than happy to get your feedback, comments and suggestions. You can also find more information on AirGap.it.
Test our first version of AirGap Vault Android and AirGap Wallet Android. The iOS versions are currently in review, reach out to test it over Testflight.

Steemit is probably control grid. The litmus tests are it's bitcoin basis, avaricious virality, people like WAC supporting it, and that they suppress 'conspiracy'

Steemit is based on bitcoin, they claim. That makes it censorship resistant, they say. We honestly don't know their backend, we have to trust that they aren't casting an illusion on us by publishing technical details of steemit's working that don't actually match reality. It would be trivial to spoof the alleged activity and mechanisms of bitcoin on steemit. If you don't get to see the backend, you just have to believe them. They use their own steemit currency also.
It does seem, however, to be legit if people are getting paid. But there are ways to spoof that also...you could have an internal currency and 'curators' who decide what something is worth (see the 'bernie sanders scam dollarvigilante' post below).
For example, the US government has unlimited money ('QE') to spend on a successful propaganda campaign to destroy reddit. After all, knowledge is power and the total fucking distrust of the american people towards the government is priceless.
Secondly, if Bitcoin itself is a scam, then steemit is a scam too.
Bitcoin involves cracking a code. Who has the most / best equipment to crack codes? The NSA. They have a few trillion dollars invested in a whole building that is a computer. Because of US Military Intelligence's (USMI's) NSA PRISM, bitcoin is an Elitist system you no longer have access to. I'll expand.
You can no longer make money on it if you didn't get in on it from the get-go. It's a ponzi scheme. In order to mine for bitcoin, you have to have expensive equipment. You can't buy enough equipment now to make enough bitcoin to pay for it and make a narrow margin, because of the way the system has worked. In the beginning, mining was easy, but now it's all mined out and more computer power + time is needed to unlock harder puzzles. That's just how it works.
So to start now, you'd need an astronomical investment in computer equipment and lots of spare, discounted energy, like for example a solar farm. No one has that. It's inherently more elitist as time goes on. If you started now, with your computer, it would take over 20 yrs on average to get a bitcoin block, if you ever did get one--which you might not.
My point is that bitcoin has always been elitists, never democratic. It was never based on anything other than who has the most energy and technology. People who got started early have the equipment, so does the USMI. USMI also has unlimited power: they have excess coal reserves, some hydro, some solar and wind, and lots of natural gas and fracking petrol; they also have nukes, which means 'cheaper oil than everywhere else in the world....or else'.
Therefore, the people who will have the most bitcoin at the end of the day is the US military and the 1%, period.
It's also pretty clear the NSA are developing quantum computers. People have speculated that bitcoin at present does not use quantum safe algorithms, and therefore at some point the US Mil can steal all the bitcoin that hasn't been transferred into a paper wallet. That paper does no good either because the moment that bitcoin is put into a usable electronic wallet and a firewall opened, bam, it could be taken by an omnipresent AI agent that's running as several autonomous micro instances in your dishwasher, nest AC controller, your amazon dash button, your iphone, etc.
First they fight you, then they win
Only Governments engage in activities that involve inhibiting or threatening cryptocurrencies (and it's useful to mention they fight crypto tools generally...they fought pgp, they fought phpphone, they fought tor, they fought i2p, freenet, torrent, VPNs, they totally undermined SSL with heartbleed, etc).
Then the Silkroad busts. Other darknet sites. Hacks on bitcoin exchanges and banks. Threats of TOR being undermined, heartbleed SSL bug making everyone question everything's security.
Who ended up with that money? The 1%.. The NSA? <-- coin telegraph or cointel-egraph
You will notice the US Government fought bitcoin at first, trying to rope in the IRS, the SEC and trying to lawyer up on bitcoin, threatening everyone who was playing, and dissuading everyone from getting in on bitcoin. (interesting, eh?)
Until the moment they seized the 20M or so in bitcoin from silkroad. And that happened around the same time the exchanges were starting to be compromised and bitcoin stolen. Then suddenly, the US changed its tune and bitcoin is no longer a threat. Why is that? Think!
It's that now that bitcoin has value (ie: bitcoin now has the potential to be exchanged for goods and services because of the public's trust of the currency to have said value), and that if the US has the lion's share of bitcoin, well they wouldn't to go fighting against a currency because that would only destroy its value. They aren't going to destroy their own wealth, or act against it, in other words.

But! Corbett supports it
I trust James Corbett, but I don't know why he's so quick to jump on steemit. Seems premature, especially since they clearly suppress the conspiracy tag.
And knowing the relationship of bitcoin to power (it's a petrol-backed currency!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and given he's made a documentary based on the history of petrol, he should know better than to back a dubious cryptocurrency based on oil. Period.
https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/4x5tsk/corbettreport_video_on_shilling_out_of_control/
Trust but verify
I'm ok with something new. In fact I tried Steemit and I like it. However, very few saw my post, nor will many. Because it was tagged conspiracy as primary, and conspiracy will not show up in lists. You have to get to conspiracy by gaming the url manually. That's lame.
No Response from Support I've told steemit about this, but I've not even gotten an email response to say, we'll respond when we can. It's literally gone into a black hole. Steemit also did not respond to another unrelated support question I sent days before the 'glitch' support email.
Fragmentation
If you think I'm 'throwing shade' on steemit, I'm not. I'm asking valid questions and pointing out things you might have missed. Shill away if you must, but I'm pretty much convinced that Steemit is just control grid, designed to fragment the /conspiracy and other communities on reddit primarily (since it's an alternative to reddit). They tried this with voat and they are trying again by monetizing it. You see that's the killer app. Trying to tempt you with money. Only problem is, it's based on bitcoin and it pays out ... what if bitcoin falls apart...as it was designed to do....all along.

Wine Is Not an Emulator

This means that eiF/h will vary periodically with a very high frequency about the value zero, as a result of which its integral will be practically zero.
The only important part in the domain of integration of qk is thus that for which a comparatively large variation in qk produces only a very small variation in F. This part is the neighbourhood of a point for which F is stationary with respect to small variations in qk.
We can apply this argument to each of the variables of integration ... and obtain the result that the only important part in the domain of integration is that for which F is stationary for small variations in all intermediate qs.
We see that FQ§ has for its classical analogue ∫t T L dt, which is just the action function, which classical mechanics requires to be stationary for small variations in all the intermediate qs.
This shows the way in which equation goes over into classical results when h becomes extremely small.
This function is the quantum analog of the classical action. Welcome to wine-3.17.

By letting w = f (z), the real and imaginary parts of w (z) must satisfy the Cauchy-Riemann equations and Laplace's equation, so they automatically provide a scalar potential and a so-called stream function. If a physical problem can be found, which solution is valid, we obtain a solution - which may have been very difficult to obtain directly - by working backwards ... in time.

↓ Full text Cannabidiol inhibits paclitaxel-induced neuropathic pain through 5-HT(1A) receptors without diminishing nervous system function or chemotherapy efficacy. Ward SJ, et al. Br J Pharmacol. 2014. Show full citation Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Paclitaxel (PAC) is associated with chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain (CIPN) that can lead to the cessation of treatment in cancer patients even in the absence of alternate therapies. We previously reported that chronic administration of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid cannabidiol (CBD) prevents PAC-induced mechanical and thermal sensitivity in mice. Hence, we sought to determine receptor mechanisms by which CBD inhibits CIPN and whether CBD negatively effects nervous system function or chemotherapy efficacy.
EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: The ability of acute CBD pretreatment to prevent PAC-induced mechanical sensitivity was assessed, as was the effect of CBD on place conditioning and on an operant-conditioned learning and memory task. The potential interaction of CBD and PAC on breast cancer cell viability was determined using the MTT assay.
KEY RESULTS: PAC-induced mechanical sensitivity was prevented by administration of CBD (2.5 - 10 mg·kg⁻¹) in female C57Bl/6 mice. This effect was reversed by co-administration of the 5-HT(1A) antagonist WAY 100635, but not the CB₁ antagonist SR141716 or the CB₂ antagonist SR144528. CBD produced no conditioned rewarding effects and did not affect conditioned learning and memory. Also, CBD + PAC combinations produce additive to synergistic inhibition of breast cancer cell viability.
CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: Our data suggest that CBD is protective against PAC-induced neurotoxicity mediated in part by the 5-HT(1A) receptor system. Furthermore, CBD treatment was devoid of conditioned rewarding effects or cognitive impairment and did not attenuate PAC-induced inhibition of breast cancer cell viability. Hence, adjunct treatment with CBD during PAC chemotherapy may be safe and effective in the prevention or attenuation of CIPN.

We are building a secure mobile wallet system called AirGap

AirGap is a wallet solution, allowing the secure storage of secrets on a mobile phone with an approach of two mobile apps. Depending on the security needed these apps can be installed on separate devices or on the same device.
To get the highest security, the AirGap Vault application is installed on a dedicated or old smartphone, which will never be connected to any network again. With the enhanced entropy concept that adds video, audio, accelerator and touch data to the entropy seed alongside the device’s pre-shipped secure random generator it is possible to generate a cryptographically secure seed used for the secret generation on that very same device. This secret never leaves the device it was generated on. The private key is saved in the secure enclave of the mobile device and needs multi-step biometric authentication every time it is accessed to perform cryptographic primitives.
AirGap Wallet on the other hand will be installed on a user’s everyday phone. With this app, users can manage their portfolio of wallets and their valuations. AirGap Wallet deals only with publicly available information as opposed to AirGap Vault, which handles the private key.
How does a transaction work? Detailed step by step guide.!
  1. Users can create a new transaction with an address, amount and a fee in AirGap Wallet.
  2. A QR code with this transaction is generated.
  3. This QR code is scanned with AirGap Vault, ensuring one-way communication only with QR codes.
  4. To sign the transaction the secure enclave is accessed with biometric authentication.
  5. The signed transaction is displayed in a QR code.
  6. The QR code is scanned by AirGap Wallet and broadcasted to the blockchain.
What if I want to manage smaller amounts?
AirGap Vault and AirGap Wallet can also be installed on the same device. In this case, the communication between the two apps works with app switching through an URL scheme. This allows the two apps to be entirely encapsulated, which is crucial: For example, AirGap Vault does not have any network permissions and thus is unable to send information out over the network, guaranteed by the operating systems sandboxing.
Which coins and token do you support?
Currently we support the Aeternity (AE) ERC20 Token, Ethereum and Bitcoin. We plan to extend this list in the future. These are all managed by the same private key/mnemonic secret.
We would be more than happy to get your feedback, comments and suggestions. You can also find more information on AirGap.it.
Test our first version of AirGap Vault Android and AirGap Wallet Android. The iOS versions are currently in review, reach out to test it over Testflight.

Hardware Wallet Standard | Jonas Schnelli | Aug 16 2016

Jonas Schnelli on Aug 16 2016:
Hi
Unfortunately, there is no standard in how desktop- or mobile-wallets
can interact with a hardware device resulting in wallet vendors adding
plugins with proprietary code for non-standardized interfaces.
I started a BIP (extreme draft, feel free to improve language, grammar
and content) to address this missing part of the ecosystem.
I think it would be extremely helpful if @ledger, @trezor,
@voisin/@breadwallet, @electrum, @bitpay (and more?!) would help working
on a such standard.
The BIP describes two approaches how to communicate (pipe and
URI-scheme) with the signing-devices app, although, in my opinion, all
major platform do support the URI approach (maybe we could drop the pipe
approach then).
The URI approach means that there is no need to configure the
application location in order to start a inter-process(-app) communication.
Mediawiki:
https://github.com/jonasschnelli/bips/blob/8abb51f0b21b6664388f6e88f6fd642c90d25dca/bip-undef-0.mediawiki
---- BIP (rough early stage draft)
BIP: ???
Title: Detached Signing
Author: Jonas Schnelli
Status: Draft (early stage!)
Type: Standards Track
Created: 2016-08-02
== Abstract ==
This BIP describes a way how wallet applications can decouple sensitive
privatekeys from the internal keychain and interact with a
signing-devices (hardware wallet, "cold" storage) over a generic
interface in order to get signatures.
== Motivation ==
It seems like that the current approach for allowing signing-devices to
interact with third party wallets is to build a plugin [1][2][3]. Adding
plugins for each hardware wallet type will increase possible security
issues and result in multiple proprietary-third-party code within the
wallet application with very similar structures.
A generic interface how wallets can interact with signing-devices would
result in better user experience, less critical code and simpler
adaption for various signing-devices.
== Specification ==
In order to support desktop- and smartphone-wallet-applications, this
BIP describes two slightly different approaches (process pipe and URI
call) in how to interact with the signing-devices. If possible, the
modern URI approach should be chosen.
=== Signing-Device-Controller-Application ===
To allow a generic interface while still allowing different ways how to
internally communicate with the signing device itself (USB, TCP/IP,
air-gapped Qr-Code scanning, etc.) a controller-application is required.
=== General signing process ===
The wallets signing process must be according the following principal:
or message together with metadata (scriptPubKey, hd-keypath of the inputs)
signing-device-controller-application
signing-request-object, eventually shows UI, user can sign or cancel
signing-response-object with signatures or an error
creating process (example: add signatures to transaction and broadcast)
=== Desktop Process Intercommunication ===
Desktop wallets can interact with a signing device over process
intercommunication (pipe) together with a
signing-device-controller-application.
As specified below, the signing-request-object is a URI string passed
through the pipe. The desktop wallet needs to wait (with a recommended
timeout between 1 and 5 minutes) until the signing-response-object will
be sent back by the signing-device-controller-application.
=== Smartphone/URI App Intercommunication ===
Smartphones and modern operating systems are trying to sandbox
applications and interprocess communication (on pipe level) is mostly
disallowed.
On smartphones, we must use URI-schemes.
The wallet can pass information to the
signing-device-controller-application by using a predefined URI scheme.
detatchedsigning://?&returnurischeme;=
The querystring must be URI encoded.
RFC 2616 does not specify a maximum length of URIs (get request). Most
modern smartphone operating system allow URIs up to serval megabytes.
Signing complex data-structure is therefore possible.
The returnurischeme must contain a URI schema where the
result of the signing process should be returned to.
The returnurischeme must be populated and "opened" once the signing
process has been completed (or cancled).
=== Signing Request ===
The signing request is a flexible URI-Query-String that will be used by
the Signing-device-controller-application for user confirmation as well
as for creating the signature.
The URI-query-string must conform to the following format:
detatchedsigning://sign?type=&data;=&inputscripts;=,,...&inputhdkeypath;=,,...&returnscheme;=
type = type of the data to sign
data = raw unsigned bitcoin transaction or text-message
(optional)inputscripts = scriptPubKey(s) of the inputs in exact order
(optional)inputhdkeypath = hd-keypath of the inputs in exact order
(optional)returnscheme = a URI scheme where the response must be sent to
(smartphone approach)
  • inputhdkeypath or inputscripts must be provided.
=== Signing Response ===
The signing response is a flexible URI-Query-String that will be sent
back to the wallet application and must contain the signatures or an
error code.
The URI-query-string can be opened (smartphone approach) or will be sent
back though the interprocess pipe.
://signresponse?errorcode=&signatures;=,,...
In case of ECDSA, the returned signatures must be normalized compact
signatures with the size of 64bytes (128 hex chars).
==== Possible error code ====
0 = no error
1 = user canceled
2 = timeout
10 = missing key identifier (missing HD keypath or input scriptpubkey)
11 = unsupported signing type
12 = could not resolve script
50 = unknown internal error
==== Examples ====
===== Simple p2pkh transaction =====
Unsigned raw transaction:
0100000001fd3cd19d0fb7dbb5bff148e6d3e18bc42cc49a76ed2bfd7d760ad1d7907fd9ce0100000000ffffffff0100e1f505000000001976a9149062e542a78d4fe00dcf7cca89c24a8013c381a388ac00000000
(input ced97f90d7d10a767dfd2bed769ac42cc48be1d3e648f1bfb5dbb70f9dd13cfd
vout:1, output: P2PKH mtgQ54Uf3iRTc9kq18rw9SJznngvF5ryZn 1 BTC)
signing-request URI must be:
detatchedsigning://sign?type=bitcoin-p2pkh&data=0100000001fd3cd19d0fb7dbb5bff148e6d3e18bc42cc49a76ed2bfd7d760ad1d7907fd9ce0100000000ffffffff0100e1f505000000001976a9149062e542a78d4fe00dcf7cca89c24a8013c381a388ac00000000&inputscripts=76a914531148ad17fdbffd4bac72d43deea6c7cf0387d088ac&inputhdkeypath=m/0'/0'/1&returnscheme;=myapp
The inputhdkeypath is optional in this case
signing-response URI must be:
detatchedsigning://signresponse?error=0&signatures=<128hex-chars>
===== Simple a bitcoin message =====
Message: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
signing-request URI must be:
detatchedsigning://sign?type=bitcoinmsg&data=Lorem+ipsum+dolor+sit+amet&inputhdkeypath=m/0'/0'/2
signing-response URI must be:
detatchedsigning://signresponse?error=0&signatures=<128hex-chars>
=== Support for multiple signing-devices ===
Must operating systems allow only one registered application per
URI-scheme. To support multiple signing-devices, wallets and
signing-devices can optional add support for brand based URI-schemes.
In addition to the standard URI scheme,
signing-devices-controller-applications can register an additional URI
scheme (with the identical request/response syntax and logic) including
a brand-identifier.
Registering a brand-identifier based URI scheme without registering the
default URI scheme is not allowed.
Wallets can detect if a certain brand based URI scheme is supported and
therefore gives user a selection if multiple signing-devices where
detected [4][5].
detatchedsigning://
Supported brand-identifiers are:
  • trezor
  • ledger
  • keepkey
  • digitalbitbix

HTML5 Wallet + Native QR Code Scanning on iOS: Coin Pocket

https://btc.coinpocketapp.com
https://github.com/enriquez/coinpocketapp.com
I'm looking for people to beta test and review the code for a wallet I've been working on for the past month or so.
I built this because I wanted something that looked good, was easy to use, and had a native QR Code reader for iOS. The wallet works on other platforms as well, but the QR Code reader is iOS only.
This is a legitimate solution to the iOS problem. There are no weird workarounds or profiles to install. The QR Code scanner app is a simple QR Code scanner that can be launched from a custom url scheme which can then pass the scanned data back to a mobile web app. Other wallets/apps can use it too.
Screenshots from an older version: http://imgur.com/a/jBlKS
Video demo of the QR Code scanner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0NmeVEz70c
iTunes link to QR Code scanner: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scan-code-qr-code-readeid828167977?ls=1&mt=8
EDIT: Blockchain.info's API went down, so Coin Pocket is not showing any data. Your Bitcoins are safe, but they are stuck at the moment since Coin Pocket needs to communicate to the network/block chain. I'm working on a fix.
EDIT2: It's back and running now.

Bank of China's announcement regarding the "ICO Ban"

This is the URL: http://www.pbc.gov.cn/goutongjiaoliu/113456/113469/3374222/index.html
The People's Bank of China Central Office of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology Ministry of Industry and Commerce, Banking Regulatory Commission, China Securities Regulatory Commission on the prevention of the risk of tokens issued financing
Large and medium - sized article Source: Communication 2017-09-04 15:00:00
Recently, the domestic through the issuance of tokens, including the first tokens (ICO) financing activities in large numbers, speculation prevails, suspected of engaging in illegal financial activities, seriously disrupted the economic and financial order. In accordance with the Law of the People's Bank of China, the Commercial Bank Law of the People's Republic of China, the Securities Law of the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, The Republic of China Network Security Law, the People's Republic of China Telecommunications Ordinance, "illegal financial institutions and illegal financial business activities," and other laws and regulations, the relevant matters are as follows: First, an accurate understanding of the essential properties of the custody financing activities
Toll coin financing refers to the financing of the main body through the token of illegal sale, circulation, to investors to raise Bitcoin, currency and other so-called "virtual currency" is essentially a non-approved illegal open financing behavior, suspected of illegal sale Tokens, illegal securities issuance and illegal fund-raising, financial fraud, pyramid schemes and other criminal activities. The relevant departments will closely monitor the dynamics, strengthen cooperation with the judicial departments and local governments, in accordance with the existing working mechanism, strict law enforcement, resolutely control the market chaos. Found suspected criminal problems, will be transferred to the judiciary.
The tokens or "virtual currency" used in coinage financing are not issued by the monetary authorities, do not have legal and monetary properties such as indemnity and coercion, do not have legal status equivalent to money, and can not and should not be circulated as a currency in the market use.
Second, No organization or individual may engage in unauthorized custody financing activities
As of the date of this announcement, all types of currency issuance financing activities shall cease immediately. The organizations and individuals who have completed the financing of the tokens should make arrangements for repatriation and so on, reasonably protect the interests of investors and properly handle the risks. The relevant departments will seriously investigate and deal with non-stop tokens issued financing activities and the completion of the tokens issued financing projects in the illegal acts.
Third, strengthen the management of tokens financing trading platform
As at the date of this announcement, any so-called tokens financing trading platform shall not engage in the exchange of legal currency and tokens, "virtual currency", and may not be traded or sold as a central counterparty to sell tokens or "virtual currency" Not for the tokens or "virtual currency" to provide pricing, information services and other services.
For the existence of illegal problems on behalf of the coin-financing trading platform, the financial management department will be submitted to the telecommunications authorities in accordance with the law to close their website platform and mobile APP, to the network letter to the mobile APP in the application store to do the next frame disposal, and to the business administration Revoke its business license.
Fourth, Financial institutions and non-bank payment institutions shall not carry out business related to tokens financing transactions Financial institutions and non-bank payment agencies may not directly or indirectly provide financing and "virtual currency" to provide account opening, registration, trading, liquidation, settlement and other products or services, shall not be covered and tokens and "virtual currency" Of the insurance business or the tokens and "virtual currency" into the scope of insurance liability. Financial institutions and non-bank payment agencies found that the currency issuance of financing transactions illegal clues should be promptly reported to the relevant departments.
Fifth, the public should be highly alert to the risk of currency issuance financing and trading risks
There are multiple risks in the issuance of coins and transactions, including the risk of false assets, the risk of business failure, and the risk of investment speculation. Investors are required to bear the investment risk at their own risk. We hope that the majority of investors will be deceived.
The use of the "currency" of the various types of illegal financial activities, the public should strengthen the risk prevention awareness and recognition ability, timely reporting of relevant illegal clues.
Sixth, give full play to the role of industry organizations self-discipline
All kinds of financial industry organizations should do a good job of policy interpretation, and urge the member units to consciously resist the illegal financing activities related to the currency issuance financing transactions and the "virtual currency", away from the market chaos, strengthen investor education and jointly maintain the normal financial order.

AMA Brandan Eich - Creator of Javascript, Mozilla Firefox & Brave Software in Ark slack

boldninja @brendaneich hi Brendan welcome to Ark slack - Brendan is the creator of JavaScript, co-founder of Mozilla / Firefox & Brave Software and today we'll host AMA with him regarding his upcoming project http://basicattentiontoken.org/ BasicAttentionToken
moobox i think i'm gonna forget about bitbay and keep it
dr10 hi brendan
brendaneich hi
dr10 nice to have you here :smile:
boldninja hi Brendan - thanks for joining us today
brendaneich happy to be here @boldninja
tranzer hi @brendaneich , I have a question regarding BAT. Will you have limited number of tokens or will you have inflation? When do you plan to start ICO? (edited)
michaelthecryptoguy Hello Brendan. Nice to have you in the ark community slack channel
mward Hello
moobox the ironies of old age. you can afford the sports car you dreamed of as a kid, but your back hurts too much to sit in it.
dr10 Will Mozilla- and Chrome-Plugins be usuable for Brave browser? Will Brave Browser be able to sync bookmarks?
mike hi brendan
cannabanana is the BAT token just an ETH asset or will it be a new blockchain technology? if the first, why ETH instead of your own block chain? :smile: (edited)
brendaneich @dr10 two questions, first one first
jonathansampson @dr10 Chrome extensions are supported today, I wrote a short walkthrough on how we (I'm an engineer on Brave) test extensions before adopting for official support. https://blog.brave.com/loading-chrome-extensions-in-brave/ Happy to answer any questions you may have. (edited)
brendaneich 1. Brave on laptop/desktop uses chromium and we support chromium extensions, but curate them into our own S3 from the Chrome Web Store ah, there is @jonathansampson on to second q
jakethepanda @brendaneich How will Brave detect bots designed to give fake attention? (edited)
brendaneich 2. Brave's client-encrypted sync is in beta now, if you use iOS i can connect you with the devs to get a beta build. it works between laptop/desktop systems already, and is coming up in Android too @cannabanana BAT is an ERC20 token on Ethereum. we need smart contracts and benefit from multiple token launches proving the tech and approach no desire to do our own blockchain
mward The BAT wallet will be implemented in Brave browser as a plug-in?
brendaneich we are pragmatists, use bitcoin already in Brave for auto-microdonations
cannabanana will you only accept ethereum for the ICO or will you also be accepting bitcoin?
brendaneich @jakethepanda please see https://www.reddit.com/BATProject/comments/61kw7f/question/dfxkuus/ reddit Question • BATProject We have answers, you may not be surprised by them: 1. Rate-limiting. Bots can fake human ad viewing (see https://whiteops.com/methbot), but we'll... @mward no, deeper integration than an extension (plugin still is overloaded for old-style stuff like Flash) can have
brendaneich @cannabanana ETH only, as BAT is an ERC20 token -- we are not launching a new exchange or anything, so other currencies have to be exchanged to buy BAT
boldninja When do you plan to start your initial token offer, will there be any hard cap?
jakethepanda @brendaneich Is this right? Users opt into the BAT system and get paid for their attention. Advertisers pay for ads with BAT. Through a smart contract, BAT is unlocked as users give the ad attention. The unlocked BAT is split up between users, Brave, and publishers.
brendaneich @mward we have BitGo provided bitcoin wallet integration in Brave already, ofc the wallet is on the blockchain not in Brave but the deeper integration is for the private, "chartbeats in your browser" auto-microdonation analytics, and the anonize.org-based ZKP protocol over VPN to communicate your donations w/o loss of anonymity or fingerprinting via the list of your top sites
@jakethepanda that is the goal but doing it with real-time BAT flow is in the future, the "Apollo" (or Mars mission) space program phase; we're in "Mercury Redstone" rn, monkeys in buckets on parabolic paths
nt91 When is ico
brendaneich @boldninja @nt91 we haven't announced the date but will very (very) soon, just getting logistics and final audits done
@boldninja cap is $15M of ETH so we have to pin the ratio close to launch given recent vol.
dr10 How will you get Brave Browser to the masses? Any marketing campaign you like to sum up? Any bigger announcement or plan?
jakethepanda How is the split determined between users, publishers and Brave?
brendaneich @dr10 we are growing, mostly organically right now, under 1M MAU but we will (in best case of crowdsale) spend more to growth-hack, which is advertising + funnel analytics / retention analysis loop
tranzer @brendaneich don't know if you have been following tokencard ICO, but they had kind of a fuckup with their smart contract, also they didn't give their address of contract literally before it started. How will you go about this? Will smart contract, address be known beforehand?
brendaneich an important point: if we hit cap we will found a trade group for attention apps and get other apps on board to use BAT and help us get to scale faster with buy side of ad-tech system, also with bigger donor cohorts via membership in trade association
nt91 Once launched how quickly isit likely to join the exchange
brendaneich @tranzer we followed that closely, it was Not Good. we are using a super-simple contract based on FirstBlood, Golem, StandardToken
mward How will you make the crowdsale? Like Gnosis? (Dutch action) The BAT token wil have fixed price at the time of ico?
brendaneich @nt91 can't say, not our biz and we are building the "in game" economics first so exchanges can come any time
brendaneich @mward fixed ratio of BAT for ETH
fixcrypt @brendaneich will all the tx recorded on eth blockchain, or will you manage some sort of payment channels?
dr10 Do you plan to integrate decentralized VPN or Tor-Like stuff? Your browser is really fast, will these things slow it down? Or didnt plan any of this?
brendaneich @fixcrypt all on chain, no preselling, no funny stuff -- we believe in simplicity first, given all the experience in this space
mike would you be interested in using a different blockchain to eliminate all the overhead of paying such a huge network of computers on ethereum to each process every single contract on each computer? (edited)
cannabanana I hope you guys will reconsider accepting more than just eth for the ICO. I have not been able to invest in any of the past like 5 good ones. There's a whole segment of people who wont touch ETH.
tranzer @brendaneich ok I know this is not about BAT, but did you know that Ark is built in JavaScript :smile: ?
fixcrypt @brendaneich how many tx are we talking about? 1 each time there is a basic attention detected? (edited)
brendaneich @dr10 we are going to do Tor private tabs, see https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/wiki/Brave-Tor-Support GitHub brave/browser-laptop browser-laptop - Brave browser for Desktop and Laptop computers running Windows, OSX, and Linux
we will make it possible to pick a region for exit node from Tor relay network -- so you can unlock region-locked videos, e.g.
yes, Tor slows things down and Tor private tabs turn on fingerprinting protection, turn off most JS, etc. -- that's a good thing
michaelthecryptoguy Very Nice!!
brendaneich @mike i'm a pragmatist and will use whatever blockchain is big enough, robust enough, has functionality we need (smart contracts, ZKP anonymity coming along, etc.). Zcash adding token support this fall, i hear. we don't multiply risk by jumping on bandwagons whose wheels are still off :wink:. we do not try 10 hard things at once -- space program from monkey in can to moon
@cannabanana we are launching an ERC20 token on Ethereum, you buy with ETH, we are not an exchange
the few launches whose contracts hardcoded a bitcoin address were launching exchange-like projects, so could take the risk
we are not doing that
separate concerns
@tranzer i heard :wink:
twitchard What do you think the adoption function for BAT looks like. Do you think there's a critical mass at which adoption will drastically speed up? Or do you think it is more gradual
brendaneich @fixcrypt no, in early phases of BAT program we cannot put each attention event on chain
obv. the chain is too costly, also: not anonymous! big tracking prob
fixcrypt agree
brendaneich we build in hybrid fashion
Brave already has anonize.org v2 ZKP integrated
requires centralized but open source accounting server
fixcrypt ah yes make sense
brendaneich we'd like someone else to run that (escrow, also could add exchange to fiat as publishers like being paid in fiat)
dr10 Can I visit websites, that block Users, that use addblock? Is there a way to work around this? Currently I use brave browser and some pages block me, because of using addblock. What is your solution to this or do you think these website will change their behaviour?
brendaneich if we can do server to client remote attestation (see https://www.npmjs.com/package/secureworker) we will npm secureworker Run JavaScript inside an Intel SGX enclave
jonathansampson @dr10 That's a bug; let us know which sites are detecting Brave as an ad-blocker, and we'll file Issues on GitHub. We're constantly making improvements in this space, and recalibrating as necessary :slightly_smiling_face:
brendaneich eventually it should all decentralize but that requires the blockchain (a blockchain; could be red-headed lovechild of Ethereum and Zcash lol) to do anonymity and microtransactions both very well
fixcrypt so payment are done on blockchain, but it basically validates on a daily basis a centralised payment channel between all stakeholders
mike like the chart on ad percentages of sites in the whitepaper. I've noticed for a long time the mainstream news sites are the worst to go to, a literal assault on the browser visiting them - have avoided going to them as a result, think you're on to something to mitigate this.
dr10 I visited a german boulevard magazine www.bild.de
brendaneich bild.de makes my eyes bleed
dr10 so normally this wouldnt be the case?
yeah its just an example lol
because I know they block addblock people
jonathansampson @dr10 I'll file an issue immediately!
brendaneich @dr10 we get around forbes, wired, latimes, many other anti-adblockers
michaelthecryptoguy Will these be done on a multi - channel?
brendaneich publishers who put up such user-hostile dialogs tend to lose alexa/comscore share
gotta catch up on the Qs
@fixcrypt next
tell me if i missed you
fixcrypt no pb
tranzer Haven't used Brave yet, might try after today, but is it same memory hungry as Chrome is?
twitchard :wave:
1nfinite concerning the ICO - will there only be one? meaning all 700m coins will be distributed through this initial $15m ICO (meaning $1 will net you about 46BAT)? sorry if I'm misunderstanding some of the info you've put out in asking this
dr10 What if I want to support Live-Streams (twitch) or youtube videos by watching their ad (which is not part of the brave system) Can I still turn off this mechanism?
brendaneich @fixcrypt yes, we buffer automicrodonations over 30 days of your uptime (varies by user; if you go on vacation those days don't count) and send Anonize ZKP votes (one per voting session, all over VPN) to our accounting server, along with the total bitcoin per 30 days you pledged. this goes into settlement wallet, the votes go into accounting db
we want to decentralize this as noted, just repeating in case anyone missed
fixcrypt decentralize this will be hard, maybe when segwit is enabled on bitcoin, but ETH, i have no idea (edited)
brendaneich @michaelthecryptoguy sorry, what did you mean by multi-channel?
jonathansampson @dr10 You can track the bild.de issue here: https://github.com/brave/browser-laptop/issues/6758 (Thank you again for reporting) (edited)
fixcrypt i think decentralizing everything is not always the best solution
brendaneich @tranzer we use less memory than chrome by virtue of ad and tracker blocking but we have some bugs to fix pre-1.0 (which i think will be in june) -- i use brave on all OSes, also use a bit of other browsers to keep up with joneses but i've cut back and tried to live in brave. on macOS i am still bugged by mem use (i'm a tab hoarder) and some lag bugs but we are on them -- will fix this month!
michaelthecryptoguy one blockchain ledger with multiple transactions, instead of being signed one at a time (edited)
brendaneich @1nfinite yes, selling 700M, floating 300M on side for user growth pool (100M), trade association, team, and future reserve
1nfinite thanks!
tranzer so 70% to ICO and 30% for team / user growth? Sounds reasonable (more than gnosis :joy: )
moobox this is great to talk to brave devs - pls to make websites look like this: http://i.imgur.com/00mQ8mc.png (173kB)
brendaneich @fixcrypt you could be right, centralization or let's say trusted third parties have existed since at least agriculture (10K years?) so we as pragmatists must consider some -- but we don't like "trust me" / "don't be evil", we prefer "trust Math" / "can't be evil"
michaelthecryptoguy then the last transaction is added to the blockchain
dafty what failsafes are planned to stop bots (eg, running selenium) from mocking a real human and gaining bat tokens? how do you know a user is actually a user?
jonathansampson @moobox We will support themes in a future release, as well as extensions to modify page presentation. If you have any favorites, please let us know :slightly_smiling_face:
moobox thank you sir
michaelthecryptoguy to improve the cost of using eth network
dr10 There are lot of small companies, Twitch/Youtube content creators which live by ads. These ads aren't yet part of the Brave-System. Will there be a smooth transition? Can I still turn off the brave-mechanism and watch these ordinairy ads, to support individuals or are they forced to switch over to Brave?
fixcrypt @brendaneich trust the code that can be hacked, or trust the people that can be evil… Make your choice. DAO vs Banks
brendaneich @michaelthecryptoguy yes, we must batch -- at first in-browser. auditable open source required, verified builds if OS/toolchain support them. there is a level of endpoint software trust in any attention ecosystem but part of the trade association idea is to standardize stuff, including ZKP and VPN rules for submitting the private ledger to the blockchain or equivalent, also auditing requirements to use BAT
cannabanana I trust bitcoin but I don't trust bitmain is not evil
brendaneich @moobox are you just asking for a dark theme? on our roadmap
moobox well this is a plugin for firefox that swaps out all website colors - nothing like it for chrome yet except an ugllly one
brendaneich @tranzer yeah, GNO didn't sell enough IMHO but i'm not on team so won't throw stones -- just sayin' as observer
mward Why only 15M$ max? Don't you think the ico will end very fast?
moobox i am just hoping maybe some person sees it and says "i want that too"
tranzer @brendaneich are you still active in JavaScript development? Could there be any kind of cooperation with Ark in the future (also asking main dev of Ark @fixcrypt ) ?
brendaneich @dafty did you see the reddit link above? besides real (costs money, boots on ground; we're evaluating Blockscore rn) KYC, we have rate limits in mind based on humans, and flow limits so a compromised real user or convincing fraudster can't get $MMs of BATs from friends and family and then pass KYC to send off to a mixer
cannabanana :trollbounce: not to mention two of us are in the bay area
brendaneich start with in-game economics, no exchanges
1nfinite any chance you'll incorporate certain requirements for investments above xx number of Eth for the crowdsale? to prevent 20 big players from buying up the whole thing?
axente How are you guys legally setup? Swiss foundation?
jonathansampson @moobox We have heard similar requests from other users, and are eagerly working towards a release that supports both theming of the browser, and styling of the content. Let us know if you have any other ideas/requests :slightly_smiling_face:
brendaneich add KYC on publishers getting donations (done in prototype form in Brave using bitcoin rn)
add KYC for users wanting to withdraw -- this also means rate/flow controls
fixcrypt @tranzer well the only point would be to use ark as the payment network, instead of ETH, i don’t see any other interaction. Also maybe make brave agnostic enough so people can choose their network payment
brendaneich but for many users the opt-in zero-knowledge ad revenue is not enough to withdraw and they'll donate it
you can net-zero your monthly spend: make ad rev on non-top-20 sites, donate to top 20
I should add we want to start with user-private ad channels, like WeChat
we won't put ads on publishers's slots without their consent and partnership
some will come fast but bigs will be slow
so we're looking for user private ads: in separate tab, wechat-like bot, fullscreen channel, etc.
these can pay most rev share to user
still rate limited, no couch potato as a service lol
dr10 what about the twitch/youtube question? How could this work out?
brendaneich @dr10 we've always had a design that denotes payee with URL including path to youtube/twitch account, not just domain name
but we start with domain name for beta/MVP
will get team on twitch/youtube in coming months, it's hot topic
everyone wants it, we're just busy (24 people now)
crowdsale will help
can hire more to parallelize a bit
dr10 so you are working on a solution to pay off individuals within the brave-system, right?
@ yt / twitch
brendaneich @mward we debated cap on basicattentiontoken.slack.com and consensus was to keep at $15M -- but a few still suggest raising or no cap, much concern about fast sell-out and whales buying too much
mward yes, that is my concern.
look at gnosis distribution..
brendaneich @tranzer yes, i'm on Ecma TC39 and still active / consulted
mward you need a lot of small investors, not whales
dr10 When you implement Tor-like stuff. Can I also Download stuff via ToVpn? just using the Tor-Tab to download
brendaneich @1nfinite we aren't going to change the contracts, in third audit currently. we can't really limit whales who have tools to buy from lots of addresses
@axente we are not swiss but looking at tax optimization structures pre-launch; brave is delaware (US) c corp; trade group would be 501c6, need to pass IRS muster so that is many months after launch
axente Oke thanks
1nfinite got it, thanks. So will there be a cap for how much can be donated per address?
brendaneich @fixcrypt code is hacked, security never done; no silver bullets. but people are easier to hack and hack themselves lol
dr10 Is the brave browser running in a sandbox like chrome?
dafty how are inappropriate ads handled on the network, is there some form of reputation system for advertisers?
brendaneich @mward GNO sold too little, cetaceans eat too much agreed. GNT sold more and we can't find on-chain huge buys
@dr10 use Tor private tab, yeah
jonathansampson @dr10 That is correct.
brendaneich btw does everyone know Brave supports magnet: and .torrent now via WebTorrent integration?
@dr10 yes, we use chromium with the same sandbox -- had to fork electron hard (twice) to do this, btw. Slack uses unsandboxed chromium renderer processes :disappointed:
tranzer I think I'm sold on brave today will definately try it out
jonathansampson @tranzer Awesome. Let us know if you have any feedback!
brendaneich @dafty we haven't taken any ads at all yet so start from clean slate. no exchanges, ads bearing malware get thru, also https://whiteops.com/methbot fraud on sell side steals revenue by putting real ads into fake slots clicked by fake users whiteops.com Methbot | White Ops Digital Advertising Security. Enterprise Security Solutions. Bots are bad for business; we're bad for bots. (4kB)
our plan is to go direct to agencies who get ads from brands
our ads are opt in
no surprises for our users who want and expect baseline Brave to block
djselery @brendaneich what are your feelings about IPFS?
dr10 Will the Paying/receiving of tokens in the brave system be easy to understand for non-tech people? Is there some kind of tutorial or easy buttons or something like that? This is a total new environment for people. You have any plans for "educating" people or making it easy to use. Like a browser-integrated Balance? Easy overviews?
brendaneich if you opt in, you can start with light touch but to get BAT out you must KYC
@dr10 have you used Brave Payments (beta) yet? the support is built in
usable UX
tranzer will you need to do KYC also if you transfer to Brave and after that decide to put it out on exchange?
brendaneich we are moving (with new name, not "Payments") to second beta with Stripe as partner for users to fund automicrodonation wallet without seeing bitcoin
dr10 I have it installed and browse with it, but it is not taking me by the hand. I wouldnt know whats going it. I will look deeper into it.
brendaneich @djselery juan DMed me and we chatted about their JS implementation following WebTorrent into Brave -- it could happen. couldn't take the Go impl :wink:
@tranzer if you buy BATs as investor, no KYC -- just send ETH to token contract once launched, get BAT back
dr10 Maybe implementing something like a tutorial when starting brave browser would be nice. I am thinking of people who dont know any of this stuff and are not interested into researching it a whole lot
alexius89 @brendaneich are there partnerships with any exchanges (Bittrex, Bitshares etc.) planned or already confirmed after the crowdfund has ended?
geezee @brendaneich you should accept ARK :smile: :smile:
brendaneich @tranzer if you are a user of Brave after we launch BAT and have it integrated, and want to opt into ads, no KYC at first but the funds (to which you will have multisig custody, similar to bitcoin setup with BitGo wallet today in Brave for donations) flow in API-keyed and browser-automated fashion toward the accounting server that settles donations behind the anonize barrier
@tranzer if you want to send BATs from your wallet to other destinations then KYC needed
@dr10 go to Preferences / Payments; the Coinbase buy widget integration is US-only and a bit much for average users, wherefore our Stripe partnership
if you have BTC already, you can just fund your wallet and start
we have pinning (Patreon in the browser) in 0.15.2 now
so you can support sites with x% of your monthly budget whether you browse there or not
dr10 Will I earn more then I pay, when I chose to accept to watch these ads?
brendaneich @dr10 you don't have to pay at all, you can just earn
both donations (currently and in future) and ads (still to come, after BAT launch) are opt-in and separate
dr10 so basically what you say... the average dude can earn money just by browsing? It will be of couse small amounts, but better then nothing
fixcrypt @brendaneich on a business model side, is Brave team earning directly from this (ie part of the revenue redirected to the team for further development)?
tranzer Will bat have finitive coins and nothing added after few years or is there some subsection where you can increase token numbers via smart contract in the future ?
brendaneich @fixcrypt we are selling 70% and 30% floats on side. 10% is user growth pool. remaining 20% is reserves for team, bat.org (shorthand for basicattentiontoken.org; also have attentiontoken.org, attentioneconomics.org) and poss. user growth reserve
dr10 what if nobody choses to donate to pay money to the ad-publishers/BAT. doesnt the concept break down? I mean many people just want to earn. They watch these ads and get money.
brendaneich @fixcrypt biz model for Brave is not fundraising, though -- that's mostly burned down as non-recurring engineering, marketing (ads and growth hacking), etc.
biz model is small percentage (currently 5%) of automicrodonation gross, and larger (maybe 15%) off gross ad spend
these will be public numbers, we want transparency
if we do user-private ads, 85% of rev could go to user
part of Brave's brand is a set of promises: your data only on your devices in clear; we don't track, or store cleartext; rev share to you for opt-in ads at least as our share.
fixcrypt @brendaneich i see some maintenance with regular upgrades from chrome and advertisers relationship, so it needs a regular funding from transations i agree.
brendaneich @dr10 if everyone free-rides then system collapses; note this is risk today on Web, without Brave (which is small-share browser)
on Web today you can use a strong ad blocker like Brave, or Chrome+uBO+Disconnect.me
fixcrypt also will the revenue from donations will be contractual on the blockchain?
cannabanana do you have a contingency plan in case of critical ETH failure in the future?
brendaneich @tranzer contract is super-simple, we are making 1e9 BATs, no plans for more. can subdivide, expect appreciation but then use mostly as medium of exchange and unit of account, not store of value. don't want everyone hoarding. as with real world economies if everyone saved the system would collapse
michaelthecryptoguy for example the double spend issue like bitcoin had
dr10 What are your arguments for people donating for ads/keeping the money circulated. Why shouldn't they just cash-out their money?
Can you tell me an example of how much I would earn by browsing an hour? What is it depending on? Is there a good example to tell to people?
tranzer How are you going to counter exchange BAT price fluctuations? We all know tokens are highly volatile can go up 200% in a day or fall 50% in a day. How will you determine how much is someone paid ? Will you use USD value at time of contract with publisher / advertiser?
cannabanana @brendaneich wouldn't it be better to have a better distribution of BAT tokens during the ICO? currently in our environment with ICOs which have been selling out instantly is that there are like 10 whale ETH investors who get all the coins and hoard leaving out like 99.5% of the people who would have invested. (edited)
dr10 Dont know if I missed it. How much BAT will I get for 1 ETH?
fixcrypt @tranzer agree volatility is something advertisers don’t like (edited)
brendaneich @fixcrypt good q about transactional on blockchain, we do it all on bitcoin blockchain currently. we want transparency
have i mentioned ad tech is full of non-transparency, price gouging, etc.?
see http://digiday.com/marketing/proverbial-black-box-open-exchange-auctions-transparency-problem/ Digiday ‘A proverbial black box’: Open-exchange auctions have a transparency problem - Digiday Demand-side platforms are unclear about how supply-side platforms charge their publisher partners, and they can't tell if a bid price is inflated. (199kB) Yesterday at 6:00 AM
@dr10 we haven't pinned the ratio and won't till close to launch date in view of ETH volatility
we are raising $15M equiv
dr10 tranzers question is good
like to know that too
brendaneich @cannabanana global war, giant meteor impact, etc. -- "exiguous circumstances" -- leave us with no good alternative, i mean this in deep civilizational sense. BAT launch will be least of our concerns. Short of these, the risk to Ethereum is low. could have primal flaw in design exposed. would have to rebase on another blockchain -- would be hard, tons of risk
catching up...
cannabanana do you guys even believe in blockchain?
tranzer Rebase to Ark :trollbounce:
cannabanana ok, nm.
brendaneich @tranzer can't volatility hedge yet (gamma hedge) as far as i know -- anyone know diff?
@cannabanana i believe in blockchain -- as with standards, the great thing about blockchains is there are so many :stuck_out_tongue:
@cannabanana we see no whalesign in GNT; if you mean GNO, see above. they sold too little
cannabanana well I also believe but not in ETH so you are basically only allowing ETH believers to partake in your project
michaelthecryptoguy Wow!! You are doing great @ brendaneich :goodjob: In the dedication and effort department! ::ghostfaceuk_node: (edited)
mward @cannabanana you can simply exchange btc to eth for ico. After ico ends and you have tokens, sell them for profit :trollbounce:
cannabanana and many projects recently "sold out" within minutes by 2m equivalent single transactions
@mward I wont ever buy any eth ever
brendaneich @cannabanana we are not religious about it, as noted above: tokens on Ethereum are proven tech (still young, mistakes and latent bugs, risk for sure but less than alternative token/smart-contract platforms). we are using Ethereum for smart contract based tokens and that's it
cannabanana that's not the point
you still must believe in it if you are only accepting eth
brendaneich @cannabanana did you actually check "many projects" to prove whalesign? we looked at some and aside from GNO couldn't find it
cannabanana :slightly_smiling_face: g/l
brendaneich @cannabanana we believe stuff, yes; have to believe to get up in morning, do anything
cannabanana i've been following altcoins since 2013
yes, i've seen them sell out in minutes
brendaneich but we are not Ethereum true believers in some zealot sense
cannabanana then why not accept bitcoin for the ICO
because of hte risk you said.
brendaneich i will say ETH price rise is scary; but EEA (JP Morgan -- federal reserve founder!) backing Ethereum is huge
mike i had a very bad experience with HEAT using Ethereum, still have to pursue it to track it down - time consuming so have put it off. Used an online wallet, jaxx, i think, since installing and waiting days for blockchain was a lot more than i wanted to deal with. Maybe there are better alternatives now.
cannabanana sorry man, didnt mean to hijack your ama
brendaneich @cannabanana accept bitcoin how?
hardcode a bitcoin address in the token contract?
Zooko's XCAT scheme?
it's cool but no thanks
K.I.S.S. rules
we will not multiply risk (odds ratios) of independent events
that's a good way to die
cannabanana wow you are a jerkoff man
I just wanted to invest in your project
but wont touch eth
brendaneich i was at a startup before Netscape (MicroUnity), talked to Jim Clark when I got to Netscape. said "we were doing ten hard things at once that all had to work for success" and Clark said "odds were 1e-10!"
cannabanana good god, good for you man
1nfinite way to be respectful @cannabanana - just because of some feud you have with ETH, too
brendaneich @cannabanana i'm not the one calling names here
techbytes let's not digress... stay on topic please
brendaneich i do like XCAT, check it out. cross chain atomic transactions
1nfinite thanks for the transparency here and taking the time to answer our questions @brendaneich
brendaneich np
i think i'm over time
did i miss anyone's q?
dr10 dr10 What are your arguments for people donating for ads/keeping the money circulated. Why shouldn't they just cash-out their money?
Can you tell me an example of how much I would earn by browsing an hour? What is it depending on? Is there a good example to tell to people?
brendaneich @dr10 thanks
dr10 np :smile:
tranzer Thanks brendan for answering all of my questions - good luck with the project I'll be sure to participate
brendaneich if people see ads and cash out, the ad business is working and perhaps it dominates
moobox thank you for answering my questions also
brendaneich today's web relies mostly on ads, few paywalls and they convert poorly
i have a feeling with automatic, anonymous microdonations and payments we will see more of that and less reliance on ads
but cannot count ads out, for sure
mike any chance of eliminating the KYC so people can just withdraw their BAT and trade it?
brendaneich @dr10 comScore had a figure of 100 page views per user per day
devin Bitcoin is to slow
mike i don't see where kyc adds any value for the users.
tranzer @mike you won't need KYC if you are just going to trade as far as I got this (edited)
brendaneich assume we partner on one ad per page (just for easy math; i don't like this model and think user-private ad channel with one ad per day might be much better)
100 ad impressions per day, 3000/month, if $3CPM that is $9/month
twitchard Is there some way/what do you think would be the best way for developers interested in advancing your mission to contribute?
brendaneich if we put the ads in user private channel and share 85% to user, that is $7.65/month to user
$3CPM is low figure
dr10 CPM means?
mike like the idea very much over all.
noslawxtrafries cost per impression I believe
brendaneich it's an ad cost model: Cost Per Mille (Mille from Latin for 1000 impressions)
video ads pay more; not just CPM but CPX for X = watch a video by quartiles; watch to end; click on download promotion after end (usually game ad)
mike so KYC is just to withdraw to fiat, but to withdraw to an exchange or another wallet is unrestricted?
brendaneich @devin yes, bitcoin too slow; no privacy either (edited)
devin Screw bitcoin
I want a project that accepts both
brendaneich @mike KYC is required or fraud kills the system faster than regulators (who will kill it too) (edited)
@devin there are projects doing this but they are "upstream" of ours
dr10 What are your 3 major arguments for mass adoption of Brave Browser. - Some Slogan you would give to magazines, etc.
brendaneich Fast (3-7x, see next link), Private, and you get paid for your attention
but remember we want the 501c6 trade association if we sell out. BAT is for multiple apps
mike have you looked at Blockstack for ID as an alternative to KYC?
brendaneich more than Brave
@mike yes (I know founders and saw them recently); that doesn't help
dr10 yeah but Brave will be the flagship of BAT token, right? Or any other big vision planned? (edited)
brendaneich @dr10 Brave will be first, yes
eventually everything here should be a standard
nothing's proprietary
twitchard Could BAT be implemented as a plugin/extension to other browsers? (Would it be more practical to fork?) (edited)
dr10 good question
mike or is KYC just needed for a threshold to withdraw above. it does seem there would be a pratical limit of how much organic ad traffic a user would be exposed to.
brendaneich blockchain, ZKP, even functional specs for KYC, definitely payments -- all should be standards used by lots of apps and services and people
@mike please find "rate" and "flow" above
ryano Dpos is probably the best consensus approach for things like this
devin @brendaneich thanks
brendaneich @twitchard BAT in extension is unclear as extensions have limited APIs, and often must be loaded from a store that has rules
kik got thrown out of iOS app store for doing its own payments some years back
CWS kicked out Ad Nauseum
mike i can see where someting is needed to mitigate clickfarms in low wage regions.
brendaneich i'm half hour overtime so have to go soon
@mike yes, and sybil attacks to route funds to a mule
stuff like that
ryano Thanks for your time Brendan
twitchard Thank you
brendaneich np, it was fun (except for the jerkoff thing :-/)
tranzer Thanks good luck
dr10 thank you very much
ryano Let me guess canna ?
cannabanana lol
man I asked a legit question and got shit on
so fuck it
jakethepanda Hi everyone. As Brendan mentioned, he will be wrapping up the AMA. @brendaneich Thank you for your time.
1nfinite thanks @brendaneich , learned a lot just from the terminology you've been using. Will spend time looking into all this, but your project sounds great
ryano Still dude, it's not good if you are predictably the one causing trouble
brendaneich @dr10 here's the "Fast" money shot
cannabanana well some people can't all be agreeable
brendaneich uploaded this image: Pasted image at 2017-05-09, 10:33 AM Add Comment
ryano You are the only one where this is an ongoing issue
It's bad for our community
cannabanana no, it's not. it's good because I give a different perspective on things. I'm not like you and I don't agree.
you think the success of ark has been on the backs of all the "good" ones?
brendaneich @cannabanana us taking ETH and me giving the reasons why we won't multiply risk is not me shitting on you -- we will have to just miss out on you this time. i wish we could take multiple currencies but it's an exchange problem at this point. maybe XCATs help in future
cannabanana I asked a legit question about what if it fails. what about hte investors?
is that not a legit question?
1nfinite WHAT ABOUT CONSUMERS????
cannabanana if you want me to put money in, I want to put in something I believe in
not something I dont
mike yes, if they want to stick with ETH, it's their call. Obviously plenty of ICOs have been successful with it, so it will continue in the future.
cannabanana consumers too, it's the same thing if it fails then the system is gone then the peopel who bought the bat to use are all out too.
brendaneich @cannabanana that's (https://arkecosystem.slack.com/archives/C41QFMCKH/p1494351381880292) fair and it means in a market, sometimes you don't make a deal -- you hold out for better product later (edited)
calling names and getting mad because someone won't do what you demand -- not fair. my 2 cents anyway
ryano You can't be calling guests jerk offs and trolls every time they don't tell you what you want. This is an ongoing issue with you. Nobody else here is lashing out at people except you and there are nearly 2000 people here.
jamiec79 oh lordy...
jamie exits the room quietly
cannabanana you know what nm
techbytes @brendaneich appreciate you stopping by today. Will put AMA on Reddit for others to find out more about your project.
brendaneich @techbytes thanks for having me
ryano Thanks Brendan
nt91 Brendan thank you for coming
ominous.shark Yeah, thanks for the AMA! @brendaneich ARK community appreciates it!
mike thanks for taking the time to talk with us about BAT, good luck with it.
michaelthecryptoguy :goodjob: Brendan and :goodluck: with the BAT ICO (edited)
boldninja Thanks @brendaneich - good luck with BAT
brendaneich thanks again
