10 things in tech you need to know today

  1. The CEO of TikTok's parent firm, ByteDance, has told employees that President Trump's "real objective" for TikTok is to ban it, not force a sale to Microsoft. Trump said on Monday that he has given Microsoft a deadline of September 15 to buy TikTok's US business and that a substantial cut of any deal should go to the US Treasury.
  2. The EU announced it is launching a full-blown antitrust investigation into Google's Fitbit acquisition. The EU investigation will focus on whether the acquisition would give Google an unfair advantage over competitors in the advertising space by hoovering up Fitbit user data.
  3. Apple's longtime head of marketing Phil Schiller is stepping aside, marking the third high-profile leadership shakeup at the company in the last 18 months. Schiller will remain at the company as an Apple Fellow, while another longtime employee, Greg Joswiak, takes his place.
  4. The UK cleared Amazon's deal to buy a 16% stake in online food platform Deliveroo. The deal has been cleared less than week after Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was grilled by US lawmakers over what they described as monopolistic behavior.
  5. Employees at video game publisher Blizzard were reportedly paid so little they were forced to skip meals to pay rent while the CEO made $40 million. Blizzard is facing major internal pushback after employees circulated a salary document that exposed major pay disparities.
  6. WhatsApp users can now fact-check forwarded message chains as another way to fight the spread of misinformation. In early April, WhatsApp set a limit for how many times a message can be forwarded at one time in response to a rise in misinformation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
  7. Big YouTube accounts are being plagued by hackers promoting Bitcoin scams. This new hack bears similarities to the tactics used by hackers who compromised hundreds of high-profile Twitter accounts last month.
  8. T-Mobile launched its standalone 5G network in the US. T-Mobile is the first major phone carrier to launch such a standalone architecture.
  9. Amazon's UK sellers are getting hit with a fee hike next month as the company passes along the cost of a new digital tax aimed at large corporations. Amazon will be raising the fees for sellers on its UK marketplace by 2%, starting in September.
  10. A new bill was introduced in the Senate on Tuesday aimed at curtailing the use of facial recognition by private companies, requiring them to obtain people's consent before scanning them with facial recognition tech. It would also ban companies from selling people's biometric identifiers, like face ID or fingerprint.

KYC is absolutely not acceptable for MakerDAO!

I've heard that founder of MakerDAO is not strictly against KYC. I have a message to whole community and specifically to a founder of MakerDAO Rune Christensen. I will explain using concrete examples why having KYC in MakerDAO is a grave mistake and it will lead to MakerDAO fork.
Many people in the first world never actually understand why financial privacy and financial inclusion is important. Even people (in the first world) who seemingly supportive of such ideas are not able to provide any concrete examples of why it's actually important.
Unfortunately, I was born in a "wrong" country (Uzbekistan) and I experienced first hand what financial exclusion actually means. I know first hand that annoying feeling when you read polite, boilerplate rejection letter from financial institution based in first world. So I had to become practical libertarian. I'm going to give you concrete examples of financial discrimination against me. Then I'm going to explain fundamental reasons why it happens. And finally, I'm going to explain my vision for DAI.
Back in 2005, I lived in Uzbekistan. I had an idea to invest in US stocks. I was very naive and I didn't know anything about investing, compliance, bank transfers, KYC etc. All I knew is nice long term charts of US stocks and what P/E means. I didn't contact any US brokerage but I checked information about account opening and how to transfer money there. I approached local bank in Uzbekistan and asked how to transfer money to Bank of New York. Banker's face was like - WOW, WTF?!?! They asked me to go to private room to talk with senior manager. Senior manager of local bank in Uzbekistan asked me why I wanted to transfer money to US. They told me that it's absolutely impossible to transfer money to US/EU and pretty much anywhere. I approached nearly every local bank in the town and they told me the same.
In 2012, I already lived in Moscow and acquired Russian citizenship. I got back to my old idea - investing in US stocks. I called to many US brokerages and all of them politely rejected me. Usually when I called I asked them if I can open an account with them. They told me to hold on line. After long pause, I was able to speak with "senior" support who politely explain me that Russia in their list of restricted countries and they can't open an account for me. Finally, I was able to open an account with OptionsXpress. Next challenge was to convince local Russian bank to transfer money to US. Back then in 2012, I was able to get permission to do so. So you might say - is this happy end?
Fast forwarding US brokerage story to 2017, OptionsXpress was acquired by Charles Schwab. I was notified that my OptionsXpress account will be migrated to Charles Schwab platform. In 2017, I already lived in the Netherlands (but still having Russian citizenship). I wasn't happy with my stupid job in the Netherlands. I called Charles Schwab and asked if I quit my job in the Netherlands and have to return to Russia, what will happen with my account. Schwab told me that they will restrict my account, so I can't do anything except closing my account. So even if I was long term customer of OptionsXpress, Charles Schwab is not fully okay with me.
Going back to 2013, I still lived in Russia. I had another idea. What if I quit my job and build some SAAS platform (or whatever) and sell my stuff to US customers. So I need some website which accept US credit cards. I contacted my Russian bank (who previously allowed me to transfer money to OptionsXpress) about steps to make in order to accept US credit cards in Russia. I've been told explicitly in email that they won't allow me to accept US credit cards under any circumstances.
Back then I still believed in "the free west". So I thought - no problem, I will just open bank account abroad and do all operations from my foreign account. I planned vacation in Hong Kong. And Hong Kong is freest economy in the world. Looks like it's right place to open bank account. I contacted HSBC Hong Kong via email. Their general support assured me that I can open bank account with them if I'm foreigner. I flew to Hong Kong for vacation and visited HSBC branch. Of course, they rejected me. But they recommended me to visit last floor in their HQ building, they told me that another HSBC branch specializes on opening bank accounts for foreigners. I went there and they said minimum amount to open bank account is 10 mil HKD (1.27 mil USD). Later I learned that it's called private banking.
When I relocated to the Netherlands, I asked ABN Amro staff - what's happen with my bank account if I quit/lose my job in the Netherlands and have to return back to Russia. I've been told that I can't have my dutch bank account if I go back to Russia even if I already used their bank for 2+ years.
I still had idea that I would like to quit my job and do something for myself. The problem is that I'm Russian citizen and I don't have any residency which is independent from my employment. So if I quit my job in the Netherlands, I have to return back to Russia. I wanted to see how I would get payments from US/EU customers. I found Stripe Atlas, it's so exciting, they help you to incorporate in US, and even help with banking, all process of receiving credit card payments is very smooth. But as usual in my case, there is a catch - Russia in their list of restricted countries.
Speaking of centralized compliance-friendly (e.g. KYC) crypto exchanges. This year I live and work in Hong Kong. Earlier this year, I thought it would be nice to have an account at local crypto exchange in Hong Kong so I can quickly transfer money from my bank account in Hong Kong to crypto exchange using FPS (local payment system for fast bank transfers). What could go wrong? After all Hong Kong is freest economy in the world, right? I submitted KYC documents to crypto exchange called Weever including copy of my Hong Kong ID as they requested. They very quickly responded that they need copy of my passport as well. I submitted copy of my Russian passport. This time they got silent. After a few days, they sent me email saying that Russia is on the US Office of Foreign Assets Control sanction list, so they just require me to fill a form about source of the funds. I told them that the source of my funds is salary, my Hong Kong bank can confirm that along with my employment contract. They got very silent after I sent them a filled form. After a week of silence I asked them - when my account get approved? They said that their compliance office will review my application soon. And they got very silent again. I waited for two or three weeks. Then I asked them again. And I immediately got email with title - Rejection for Weever Account Opening. And text of email was:
We are sorry to inform you that Weever may not be able to accept your account opening application at this stage.
Exactly the same situation I had with one crypto exchange in Europe back in 2017. Luckily I have accounts at other crypto exchanges including Gemini, one of most compliance obsessed exchange in the world. Although I don't keep my money there because I can't trust them, who knows what might come into head of their compliance officer one sunny day.
By the way, I'm living and working outside of Russia for quite a few years. The situation with crypto exchanges is much worse for those who still living in Russia.
I give you a few other examples of financial discrimination is not related to troubles with my Russian citizenship.
Back in 2018, I still lived in the Netherlands. I logged in into my brokerage account just to buy US ETFs as I always do - SPY and QQQ. I placed my order and it failed to fill. I thought it's just a technical problem with my brokerage account. After a few failed attempts to send buy orders for SPY and QQQ, I contacted their support. What they told me was shocking and completely unexpected. They said I'm not permitted to buy US ETFs anymore as EU resident because EU passed a law to protect retail investors. So as a EU resident I'm allowed to be exposed to more risk by buying individual US stocks but I'm not allowed to reduce my risk by buying SPY because ... EU wants to protect me. I felt final result of new law. By the way, on paper their law looks fine.
And the final example. It's a known fact that US public market become less attractive in recent decades. Due to heavy regulatory burden companies prefer to go public very late. So if successful unicorn startup grows from its inception/genesis to late adoption, company's valuation would be 3-5 orders of orders of magnitude. For example, if valuation of successful company at inception is 1 Mil USD, then at its very latest stage it's valuation would be 10 Bil USD. So we have 10'000 times of growth. In the best case scenario, company would go public at 1 Bil USD 5-10 years before reaching its peak 10 Bil USD. So investors in private equity could enjoy 1000 fold growth and just leave for public only last 10 fold growth stretched in time. In the worst case scenario, company would go public at 10 Bil USD, i.e. at its historical peak. But there are well known platforms to buy shares of private companies, one of such platforms is Forge Global. You can buy shares of almost all blue chip startups. You can even invest in SpaceX! But as always, there is a catch - US government wants to protect not just US citizens but all people in the world (sounds ridiculous, right?). US law requires you to have 1 Mil USD net worth or 200'000 USD annual income if you want to buy shares of non-public company. So if you are high-net worth individual you can be called "accredited investor". Funny thing is that the law intends to protect US citizens but even if you are not US citizen and never even lived in US, this law is still applies to you in practice. So if you are "poor loser", platforms like Forge Global will reject you.
So high-net worth individuals have access and opportunity to Bitcoin-style multi-magnitude growth every 5-10 years. Contrary to private equity markets, US public markets is low risk/low return type of market. If you have small amount of capital, it's just glorified way to protect yourself from inflation plus some little return on top. It's not bad, US public market is a still great way to store your wealth. But I'm deeply convinced that for small capital you must seek fundamentally different type of market - high risk/high return. It's just historical luck that Bitcoin/Ethereum/etc were available for general public from day one. But in reality, viral/exponential growth is happening quite often. It's just you don't have access to such type of markets due to regulatory reasons.
I intentionally described these examples of financial discrimination in full details as I experienced them because I do feel that vast majority of people in the first world honestly think that current financial system works just fine and only criminals and terrorists are banned. In reality that's not true at all. 99.999% of innocent people are completely cut off from modern financial system in the name of fighting against money laundering.
Here is a big picture why it's happening. There are rich countries (so called western world) and poor countries (so called third world). Financial wall is carefully built by two sides. Authoritarian leaders of poor countries almost always want full control over their population, they don't like market economy, and since market forces don't value their crappy legal system (because it works only for close friends of authoritarian leader) they must implement strict capital control. Otherwise, all capital will run away from their country because nobody really respects their crappy legal system. It only has value under heavy gun of government. Only friends of authoritarian leader can move their money out of country but not you.
Leaders of rich countries want to protect their economy from "dirty money" coming from third world. Since citizens of poor countries never vote for leaders of rich countries nobody really cares if rich country just ban everyone from poor country. It's the most lazy way to fight against money laundering - simply ban everyone from certain country.
Actually if you look deeper you will see that rich countries very rarely directly ban ordinary people from third world. Usually, there is no such law which doesn't allow me to open bank account somewhere in Europe as non-EU resident. What's really happens is that US/EU government implement very harsh penalties for financial institutions if anything ever goes wrong.
So what's actually happens is that financial institutions (banks, brokerages etc) do de-risking. This is the most important word you must know about traditional financial system!
So if you have wrong passport, financial institution (for example) bank from rich country just doesn't want to take any risks dealing with you even if you are willing to provide full documentation about your finances. It's well known fact that banks in Hong Kong, Europe, US like to unexpectedly shutdown accounts of thousands innocent businesses due to de-risking.
So it's actually de-risking is the real reason why I was rejected so many times by financial institutions in the first world!!! It's de-risking actually responsible for banning 99.999% of innocent people. So governments of rich democratic countries formally have clean hands because they are not banning ordinary people from third world directly. All dirty job is done by financial institutions but governments are well aware of that, it's just more convenient way to discriminate. And nobody actually cares! Ordinary citizens in rich countries are never exposed to such problems and they really don't care about people in third world, after all they are not citizens of US/EU/UK/CH/CA/HK/SG/JP/AU/NZ.
And now are you ready for the most hilarious part? If you are big corrupt bureaucrat from Russia you are actually welcome by the first world financial institutions! All Russian's junta keep their stolen money all across Europe and even in US. You might wonder how this is possible if the western financial system is so aggressive in de-risking.
Here is a simple equation which financial institution should solve when they decide whether to open an account for you or not:
Y - R = net profit
Where:
Y - how much profit they can make with you;
R - how much regulatory risk they take while working with you;
That's it! It's very simple equation. So if you are really big junta member from Russia you are actually welcome according to this equation. Banks have special name for serving (ultra) high-net worth individuals, it's called private banking. It's has nothing to do with the fact that bank is private. It's just fancy name for banking for rich.
So what's usually happen in real world. Some Estonian or Danish bank got caught with large scale money laundering from Russia. European leaders are ashamed in front of their voters. They implement new super harsh law against money laundering to keep their voters happy. Voters are ordinary people, they don't care about details of new regulations. So banks get scared and abruptly shutdown ALL accounts of Russian customers. And European voters are happy.
Modern money laundering laws are like shooting mouse in your house using bazooka! It's very efficient to kill mouse, right?
Now imagine world without financial borders. It's hard to do so because we are all get so used to current status quo of traditional financial system. But with additional effort you can start asking questions - if Internet economy is so global and it doesn't really matter where HQ of startup is located, why they are all concentrated in just a few tiny places like Silicon Valley and ... well, that's mostly it if you count the biggest unicorns!
Another question would be - why so many talented russian, indian, chinese programmers just go to the same places like San Francisco, London and make super rich companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple to get even richer? If all you need is laptop and access to internet, why you don't see any trade happening between first and third world?
Well actually there is a trade between first and third world but it's not exactly what I want to see. Usually third world countries sell their natural resources through giant corporations to the first world.
So it's possible to get access to the first world market from third world but this access usually granted only to big and established companies (and usually it means not innovative).
Unicorns are created through massive parallel experiment. Every week bunch of new startups are created in Silicon Valley. Thousands and thousands startups are created in Silicon Valley with almost instant access to global market. Just by law of large numbers you have a very few of them who later become unicorns and dominate the world.
But if you have wrong passport and you are located in "wrong" country where every attempt to access global market is very costly, then you most likely not to start innovative startup in the first place. In the best case scenario, you just create either local business or just local copy-paste startup (copied from the west) oriented on (relatively small) domestic market. Obviously in such setup it's predictable that places like Silicon Valley will have giant advantage and as a result all unicorns get concentrated in just a few tiny places.
In the world without financial barriers there will be much smaller gap between rich and poor countries. With low barrier of entry, it won't be a game when winner takes all.
Whole architecture of decentralized cryptocurrencies is intended to remove middle man and make transactions permissionless. Governments are inherently opposite to that, they are centralized and permissioned. Therefore, decentralized cryptocurrencies are fundamentally incompatible with traditional financial system which is full of middle mans and regulations (i.e. permissions).
Real value of crypto are coming from third world, not the first world. People are buying crypto in rich countries just want to invest. Their financial system and their fiat money are more or less already working for them. So there is no immediate urgency to get rid of fiat money in the first world. So the first world citizens buying crypto on centralized KYCd exchanges are essentially making side bet on the success of crypto in third world.
Real and natural environment of cryptocurrencies is actually dark OTC market in places like Venezuela and China.
But cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have a big limitation to wide adoption in third world - high volatility.
So the real target audience is oppressed (both by their own government and by first world governments) ordinary citizens of third world countries yet they are least who can afford to take burden of high volatility.
Right now, Tether is a big thing for dark markets across the world (by the way, dark market doesn't automatically imply bad!). But Tether soon or later be smashed by US/EU regulators.
The only real and working permissionless stable cryptocurrency (avoiding hyped word - stablecoin) is DAI.
DAI is the currency for post-Tether world to lead dark OTC market around the world and subvert fiat currencies of oppressive third world governments.
Once DAI become de-facto widespread currency in shadow economy in all of third world, then it will be accepted (after many huge push backs from governments) as a new reality. I'm talking about 10-20+ years time horizon.
But if MakerDAO chooses the route of being compliance friendly then DAI will lose its real target audience (i.e. third world).
I can not imagine US/EU calmly tolerate someone buying US stocks and using as a collateral to issue another security (i.e. DAI) which is going to be traded somewhere in Venezuela! You can not be compliance friendly and serve people in Venezuela.
Facebook's Libra was stupidest thing I've seen. It's extremely stupid to ask permission from the first world regulators to serve third world and create borderless economy. Another stupid thing is to please third world governments as well. For example, Libra (if ever run) will not serve Indian, Chinese, Venezuelan people. Who is then going to use stupid Libra? Hipsters in Silicon Valley? Why? US dollars are good enough already.

NBA Says Basketball Player Can’t Tokenize His Contract After All

NBA Says Basketball Player Can’t Tokenize His Contract After All

Spencer Dinwiddie took a shot at tokenization, but the National Basketball Association blocked him.
The NBA said Friday that Dinwiddie’s plan to pledge part of his contract earnings for a security token offering violates the league’s collective bargaining agreement, according to the New York Times.
“The described arrangement is prohibited by the C.B.A., which provides that ‘no player shall assign or otherwise transfer to any third party his right to receive compensation from the team under his uniform player contract,’” the league said.
Dinwiddie appeared to disagree with the assessment, writing on Twitter, “The architecture by definition is not an assignment lol FUD.”
It is unclear if the NBA spoke to Dinwiddie before providing the statement to the Times. However, the Brooklyn Nets guard indicated that he had told the league about his intentions before they were publicly announced, writing, “to put this quite simply I’m not assigning my contract and have been explicit in that when I’ve spoken to them.”
“The news tonight is disappointing because all it does is inspire #FUD in the birth of a previously unrealized asset class under the assumption that I’m breaking a rule that I’ve been clear I’m not breaking in multiple conversation,” he wrote, concluding:
“I look forward to an understanding because as I stated in the previous articles it was made with the @NBA in mind. Hopefully being able to bring added fan engagement to the different players/teams and liquidity for team owners.”
A publicist for Dinwiddie did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A spokesperson for the NBA sent CoinDesk the same statement shared with the Times.

Fan shares

Dinwiddie revealed Thursday that he intended to tokenize part of his contract on the ethereum blockchain, in order to raise $13.5 million from his three-year, $35 million contract (Dinwiddie is set to make $16 million in his first year).
As part of the DREAM Fan Shares platform, Dinwiddie outlined a company where any entertainer could tokenize their contract, raising part of their salary upfront to invest or otherwise use immediately. Token holders would receive Dinwiddie’s regular salary payments, recouping their investments and earning interest.
Paxos Trust Company was set to provide custody and escrow services for the project, paying investors out in the Paxos Standard stablecoin. The company was unavailable for comment on Friday.
Dinwiddie’s plan is receiving public support: on Friday, presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who has praised blockchain in the past and suggested a federal framework for cryptocurrency regulation, wrote that he thought the plan was “genius.” He added that he was “disappointed the NBA is disallowing it.”
Earlier Friday, Dinwiddie also revealed that he had partnered with the Tron Foundation and its CEO, Justin Sun, to donate 8.2 bitcoin to charity by selling his game-worn shoes for the 2019/2020 season.
He reassured fans that regardless of the NBA’s possible issues with his contract plan, he would make the donation, writing:
“Also, in case you were worried I’m still going to give the 8.2btc to charity from my shoes lol”

Trying to explain Bitcoin the first truly Decentralized Company

People throw the word decentralized around without even knowing what it means. Well, it means different things for different people. I am a big fan of ICOs, maybe not a popular thought in the Bitcoin subreddit. But I believe the biggest power of crypto is the ability to build a decentralized architecture for any industry.
To help people understand what decentralized architecture is I wrote a blog piece on icodog.io trying to explain it. Since nobody really understood how this stuff works, as its fundamentally different and very abstract this should be taken with a grain of salt. This is my interpretation of how things could be done in the future.
If you disagree or have a different idea of what is meant by a DAO or know someone that is very knowledgeable in this field please pm me.

Introducing a New Way of Doing Everything


A decentralized architecture is fundamentally different to anything we know as of know. That’s also why it’s so hard to understand. Think of bitcoin as the first decentralized company. Let’s call it Bitcoin Crop.
To help understand the Bitcoin Company metaphor, let’s say bitcoins properties are the products that this new decentralized company is producing. Common things said about Bitcoin is its decentralized, censorship resistance peer to peer money. These are often the terms used when people tell you why you should buy bitcoin. Bitcoin is the fastest growing asset of all time. Therefore Bitcoin as the first decentralized company is the fastest growing Company in the world, reaching an evaluation of over 300 Billion USD in less than 10 years.
Although the Bitcoin Company is producing high-quality stuff, the products themselves are only as good as the sales, distribution, marketing and that where decentralized architecture kicks centralized companies ass.
To make things even more complicated we now have to rethink what it means to be paid and to receive a salary. In a centralized company, build on the centralized architecture model, you work for your boss, who has a boss and that boss gets told what to do by some CEO who then has to take his others from shareholders. The money “trickles down” the food chain and by the time it reaches the bottom almost all of it is gone.
Let’s compare this with the first decentralized company Bitcoin. In the Bitcoin company its a bit more complicated than that. In the early days of the company, if you want to work there, you actually have to pay the company first! Crazy I know! Think of it as some tribute to show your loyalty to the Network. The earlier you join, the less you have to pay, and the more of the company network you own.
In the early days of Bitcoin Corp. most of the employees there were just engineers and a few crazy marketing guys. Things became a lot more interesting in 2013, when some important people started to work at Bitcoin Corp. People like the Winklevoss twins, Roger ver, Chamath Palihapitiya and many others bought a big share in Bitcoin Corp. and thereby earned the right to work for the Bitcoin. After that, Bitcoin Corp started to grow exponentially, because those new high-class employees had a lot of leverage and even more incentive to grow Bitcoin. The harder they would work the bigger the company would become and the more valuable there coins would be.
This was the birth of the first decentralized payroll. Most of the mentioned people earned millions working for Bitcoin and are still working hard getting ETFs approved and spreading the word about it. Every person that owns Bitcoin becomes an employee at Bitcoin Corp. Everybody is rewarded for the work that anybody does, and everybody is incentivized to help grow the Bitcoin company.

The Story of ICODOG, November Progress Report

Crashing through the support lines like a Boss
If you are reading this, then your awesome! ICO DOG started off as a simple twitter channel in January 2018. People started to follow the dog, because we provided useful insights into ICO investing and whitelist links. Back then people still had to race everyone else to get into these things, before they would dump hard. In February we then had the first guys asking us to make a telegram chat room for the community and use primablock to pool funds together to send to such projects. It was a very exciting time to see ICO DOG brand grow so organic. After that, the market crashed 20% every single day. That was a rough period. To be honest, the whole year was a stony road. Several people came together, that were very active in the telegram channel and formed a team. It was like a mini DAO. We had review & marketing guys, tech guys, lawyer team and all that happened by itself on Telegram. We build the first Presale Platform, created a cool UI for users introduced a level system to build the community and later even added master nodes. However, things just became more and bleaker. As Bitcoin fell closer to $3000 more people left and the group became silent. Sounds like a sad story right? Well, every good storyline has a downturn, followed by a boost of motivation to get through all the shit. A few months ago, we decided that the ICO space became a bit too scammy in 2018. We started to become more selective with the investment choices and eventually stopped pooling altogether. Pooling was about winning together, and it’s not fun if everybody loses. We started to look into other forms of revenue that we can build up to keep us over water until the bear market is over. What we love to do the most is community building, and community is the MOST important aspect of a decentralized network. The idea of blockchain was it to move from a centralized system to a decentralized one. This word decentralized is being thrown around on a daily basis although most people still do not understand what it means to change the architecture from centralized to decentralized. Most if not all big projects still have a very centralized structure going on with a few exceptions like Bitcoin, Ethereum & Steem.
Understanding decentralized Architecture
A decentralized architecture is fundamentally different to anything we know as of know. That’s also why it’s so hard to understand. Think of bitcoin as the first decentralized company.

Every person that owns Bitcoin becomes an employee at Bitcoin Corp. Everybody is rewarded for the work that anybody does, and everybody is incentivized to help grow the Bitcoin company.
Introducing a New Way of Doing Everything
A few months ago, we decided to build software to help ICOs build their own decentralized Networks. We called the system Proof of Engagement and called the Software the DAO Maker. Pun intended. Proof of Engagement is a concept that helps onboard new users and uses token bondage curves and community incentive to create an organic community of long-term token holders. We took our functions that we build to detect contributors in an ICO pool and combined it with our Point system to great a smart community program. The idea is that users can join the ICO before it starts and do community work, quizzes, and other services before the public sale ends. Once the tokens are unlocked, those users that joined the ICO will get their investment tokens + engagement reward tokens. Users can then continue to earn community bonus tokens monthly, but ONLY if they keep their ICO token in the wallet which they used for investing into the ICO. The monthly rewards increase with:
Time user holds the initially invested coins.
Time users hold their earned engagement tokens.
The total amount of tokens held by registered users.
The total amount of tokens user is currently holding.
Current users community level.
Monthly earned points.
All of these factors are added together, to give the exact value that a user will receive monthly. Put simply its a micro staking system, that rewards engaged users in tokens. The result is a dynamic token bonded community. People have incentives to build and help the network, the more experience that have the more tokens they will own, the more tokens they will earn. The system incentives loyalty and hodlers, while also makes it possible for new users to join the system and help the network to grow. For a deeper understanding on Dynamic Token Bonding Curves you can check out some publications on Token Economy here 
The best KYC & AML & CTF in Crypto
For the past months, we were talking to A LOT of KYC providers. We quickly came to the conclusion that most of them are scams. The state of Anti Money laundry in crypto is pretty scary. I lots of people will end up in court for violating the AML directives. Currently, most ICOs do not comply with KYC & AML laws. The EU currently requires to be compliant until the 4th EU AML directive, which will change in 2019. We are already compliant with EU AMLD5, which is not in force yet but already includes cryptocurrencies, we are a step ahead of the curve in the EU. Starting this week, we will introduce the new KYC & AML features on our Platform. We are using the newest system of machine learning to scan a users face and password as well as detecting an applicants voice, to generate a complete biometric signature of his application. We will be able to onboard KYC & AML application in real time and will be one of the first fully compliant with the new regulations of 2019. 
Updates to ICODOG Reviews
We changed the homepage for ICO DOG to show more crypto stories, reviews and post analysis. We are working on a more in-depth redesign for ICODOG.IO in 2019. We added a few new Blog sections namely, ICO Analysis and Post ICO Reviews and Crypto Stories. We want to take more time in 2019 to evaluate ICOs that concluded their Sale in 2017 & 2018. We are planning to make this a decentralized work effort with the help of Token Curated Lists (TCL). We will make a few posts about TCL in the next few weeks. ICODOG.IO is focusing on providing value-adding content, not the same stuff that the mainstream crypto outlets write about. This will be a really cool project that we are very excited to start next year and finish by end of Q1 2019. We welcomed 3 new writers to the ICODOG team and are trying to produce useful content every day.
New Partnerships & Business Development
Last month we Partnered up with several high-quality service providers as well as high potential ICOs. We will add all of the new partners on the Partners on the Partners tap of the updated website. Looking forward to building the new world with likeminded people.
ICO DOG Platform Upgrade 2.0
We been very busy and added a lot new feature on ICO DOG Investment platform. We are still in bug hunting so if you use the bug bounty tap on the platform to help us. We added some cool features that will make the life of many a lot easier. Automated twitter confirmation Users once a user connects their Twitter account in the profile section and starts generating tweets and retweets, these actions will be detected at midnight automatically. That means users do not need to click claim every day, but instead can earn points directly on Twitter. Reddit Automated Integration Users can now also join the Reddit campaign and generate threads and comments to spread the word about ICO DOG. We increased the team to help with the distribution of content among all the social media accounts. This should help you guys earn points quicker and easier as well as build a community on Reddit. For launching this new system we are increasing the points for reddit registrations by 3x. Ambassador Program We added an Ambassador Program for the ICO DOG community. We added Ambassador status to several people already that have been part of the community for almost a year and been working together through this bear Market. Ambassadors have special rights and access to social media accounts, discord reddit and will be informed about the latest updates.
ICO DOG COIN
We plan to introduce the ICO DOG Coin next year. This coin will be the fuel that powers all of the ICO DOG utility. Ambassadors will get monthly airdrops in the ICODOG coin depending on their contribution. Part of the revenue that ICO DOG will make goes into the coin via buybacks and token burns. As we are not raising any funds from nobody, the coin is cannot be considered a security. All new Features Summarized Following a few of the new features: + Upgraded pool system: – new wallet management – my pools is now a list (click the red sync button to update your pools) – record and track all the transaction you have sent, even from different address – improved overall working flow + Add reddit integration with auto check (it runs every day) + Weekly competition + Global real-time notifications + Two factor authentication support (Google authenticator) + Twitter with auto claim (it runs every day, no need to click Claim anymore) + Many other new features and bug fixes 
Summary
This year was rough, but we did not give up. The harder Bitcoin Dumps, the harder we work! Things could be better in terms of the market, but fundamentally ICO DOG is doing pretty good. We want to thank all those that have been with us on this amazing journey since the beginning. Crypto will change the world and we will help make that happen. If you like what we do please register on the icodogpool platform and shill this and other-other content! As always like, share and join discord & telegram.

Interoperable, Streaming Payments with Interledger - Internetworking of Payment Networks

I have found some interesting meeting minutes (Source: https://www.w3.org/2018/04/30-wpay-minutes.html) of a WebEx on April 30th 2018 between
The presentation is available here: https://www.w3.org/2018/Talks/es-ilp-20180430.pdf
The meeting had the topic: Interoperable, Streaming Payments - Internetworking of Payment Networks.
On slide 14 of the presentation is stated, that Interledger already has 300+ contributors
On slide 17 the layer model of the Interledger Architecture is shown.
Some sentences from the minutes:
Manu: What does the adoption pathway look like for contributors? ... what would our company need to do to put ILP in front of our customers?
Evan: The easiest way to start would be to connect through a cryptocurrency (XRP, ether, some bitcoin one) ... you would integrate SPSP
Evan: Originally we thought ILP should be for both big and small payments, but when you DESIGN for both, complexities arise ... the qualities you want for sending $10M are different from $.1 ... for large amounts, it doesn't matter how much time is required, but focus is on risk ... for small amounts, time because much more important ... so we focused ILP design on transferring small amounts, much like the internet
Evan: ... on the internet you can't really get services without sign-up...ILP allows more anonymous services
AdrianHB: We are talking less here about ecommerce and more about digital services

Buona spiegazione di meltdown & spectre.

Tl;dr: Ci sono due bug nella gestione di memoria di tutte le CPU in uso da 20 anni a questa parte. Il loro effetto è di permettere ad un processo in stato non privilegiato di leggere la memoria del kernel (Meltdown) e/o di un altro processo (Spectre). Questo si può usare (ad esempio) per fare un keylogger e leggere password, # di carta di credito etc. mentre vengono scritti. I possibili exploit funzionano su tutti i sistemi operativi (sì, anche sui telefoni, e sui dispositivi IOT, e sugli embedded), ipervisori (sì, anche cross-domain) e da ogni tipo di userspace - in particolare al momento è possibile farlo da uno snippet javascript che giri nella finestra di un browser. Non riesco a immaginare un motivo per cui non si possa fare da PHP, che so, in un plugin di wordpress. Le patch, che non sono ancora state messe in distribuzione generale, sono efficaci solo contro Meltdown (Spectre è più difficile da sfruttare, per fortuna, ma è anche capito peggio). Non solo, ma rallentano le prestazioni (fino al 20% in alcuni benchmark di postgres) e aumentano l'uso della CPU (un cloud provider ha visto la CPU post-patch raddoppiare).
Buon 20181.
1) Primo tentativo di aggiornare il kernel di una VM (presumibilmente con la patch anti-Meltdown). Risultato: VM non-bootabile. Groan.
*"By now, most of you have probably already heard of the biggest disaster in the history of IT – Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities which affect all modern CPUs, from those in desktops and servers, to ones found in smartphones. Unfortunately, there's much confusion about the level of threat we're dealing with here, because some of the impacted vendors need reasons to explain the still-missing security patches. But even those who did release a patch, avoid mentioning that it only partially addresses the threat. And, there's no good explanation of these vulnerabilities on the right level (not for developers), something that just about anyone working in IT could understand to make their own conclusion. So, I decided to give it a shot and deliver just that.
First, some essential background. Both vulnerabilities leverage the "speculative execution" feature, which is central to the modern CPU architecture. Without this, processors would idle most of the time, just waiting to receive I/O results from various peripheral devices, which are all at least 10x slower than processors. For example, RAM – kind of the fastest thing out there in our mind – runs at comparable frequencies with CPU, but all overclocking enthusiasts know that RAM I/O involves multiple stages, each taking multiple CPU cycles. And hard disks are at least a hundred times slower than RAM. So, instead of waiting for the real result of some IF clause to be calculated, the processor assumes the most probable result, and continues the execution according to the assumed result. Then, many cycles later, when the actual result of said IF is known, if it was "guessed" right – then we're already way ahead in the program code execution path, and didn't just waste all those cycles waiting for the I/O operation to complete. However, if it appears that the assumption was incorrect - then, the execution state of that "parallel universe" is simply discarded, and program execution is restarted back from said IF clause (as if speculative execution did not exist). But, since those prediction algorithms are pretty smart and polished, more often than not the guesses are right, which adds significant boost to execution performance for some software. Speculative execution is a feature that processors had for two decades now, which is also why any CPU that is still able to run these days is affected.
Now, while the two vulnerabilities are distinctly different, they share one thing in common – and that is, they exploit the cornerstone of computer security, and specifically the process isolation. Basically, the security of all operating systems and software is completely dependent on the native ability of CPUs to ensure complete process isolation in terms of them being able to access each other's memory. How exactly is such isolation achieved? Instead of having direct physical RAM access, all processes operate in virtual address spaces, which are mapped to physical RAM in the way that they do not overlap. These memory allocations are performed and controlled in hardware, in the so-called Memory Management Unit (MMU) of CPU.
At this point, you already know enough to understand Meltdown. This vulnerability is basically a bug in MMU logic, and is caused by skipping address checks during the speculative execution (rumors are, there's the source code comment saying this was done "not to break optimizations"). So, how can this vulnerability be exploited? Pretty easily, in fact. First, the malicious code should trick a processor into the speculative execution path, and from there, perform an unrestricted read of another process' memory. Simple as that. Now, you may rightfully wonder, wouldn't the results obtained from such a speculative execution be discarded completely, as soon as CPU finds out it "took a wrong turn"? You're absolutely correct, they are in fact discarded... with one exception – they will remain in the CPU cache, which is a completely dumb thing that just caches everything CPU accesses. And, while no process can read the content of the CPU cache directly, there's a technique of how you can "read" one implicitly by doing legitimate RAM reads within your process, and measuring the response times (anything stored in the CPU cache will obviously be served much faster). You may have already heard that browser vendors are currently busy releasing patches that makes JavaScript timers more "coarse" - now you know why (but more on this later).
As far as the impact goes, Meltdown is limited to Intel and ARM processors only, with AMD CPUs unaffected. But for Intel, Meltdown is extremely nasty, because it is so easy to exploit – one of our enthusiasts compiled the exploit literally over a morning coffee, and confirmed it works on every single computer he had access to (in his case, most are Linux-based). And possibilities Meltdown opens are truly terrifying, for example how about obtaining admin password as it is being typed in another process running on the same OS? Or accessing your precious bitcoin wallet? Of course, you'll say that the exploit must first be delivered to the attacked computer and executed there – which is fair, but here's the catch: JavaScript from some web site running in your browser will do just fine too, so the delivery part is the easiest for now. By the way, keep in mind that those 3rd party ads displayed on legitimate web sites often include JavaScript too – so it's really a good idea to install ad blocker now, if you haven't already! And for those using Chrome, enabling Site Isolation feature is also a good idea.
OK, so let's switch to Spectre next. This vulnerability is known to affect all modern CPUs, albeit to a different extent. It is not based on a bug per say, but rather on a design peculiarity of the execution path prediction logic, which is implemented by so-called Branch Prediction Unit (BPU). Essentially, what BPU does is accumulating statistics to estimate the probability of IF clause results. For example, if certain IF clause that compares some variable to zero returned FALSE 100 times in a row, you can predict with high probability that the clause will return FALSE when called for the 101st time, and speculatively move along the corresponding code execution branch even without having to load the actual variable. Makes perfect sense, right? However, the problem here is that while collecting this statistics, BPU does NOT distinguish between different processes for added "learning" effectiveness – which makes sense too, because computer programs share much in common (common algorithms, constructs implementation best practices and so on). And this is exactly what the exploit is based on: this peculiarity allows the malicious code to basically "train" BPU by running a construct that is identical to one in the attacked process hundreds of times, effectively enabling it to control speculative execution of the attacked process once it hits its own respective construct, making one dump "good stuff" into the CPU cache. Pretty awesome find, right?
But here comes the major difference between Meltdown and Spectre, which significantly complicates Spectre-based exploits implementation. While Meltdown can "scan" CPU cache directly (since the sought-after value was put there from within the scope of process running the Meltdown exploit), in case of Spectre it is the victim process itself that puts this value into the CPU cache. Thus, only the victim process itself is able to perform that timing-based CPU cache "scan". Luckily for hackers, we live in the API-first world, where every decent app has API you can call to make it do the things you need, again measuring how long the execution of each API call took. Although getting the actual value requires deep analysis of the specific application, so this approach is only worth pursuing with the open-source apps. But the "beauty" of Spectre is that apparently, there are many ways to make the victim process leak its data to the CPU cache through speculative execution in the way that allows the attacking process to "pick it up". Google engineers found and documented a few, but unfortunately many more are expected to exist. Who will find them first?
Of course, all of that only sounds easy at a conceptual level - while implementations with the real-world apps are extremely complex, and when I say "extremely" I really mean that. For example, Google engineers created a Spectre exploit POC that, running inside a KVM guest, can read host kernel memory at a rate of over 1500 bytes/second. However, before the attack can be performed, the exploit requires initialization that takes 30 minutes! So clearly, there's a lot of math involved there. But if Google engineers could do that, hackers will be able too – because looking at how advanced some of the ransomware we saw last year was, one might wonder if it was written by folks who Google could not offer the salary or the position they wanted. It's also worth mentioning here that a JavaScript-based POC also exists already, making the browser a viable attack vector for Spectre.
Now, the most important part – what do we do about those vulnerabilities? Well, it would appear that Intel and Google disclosed the vulnerability to all major vendors in advance, so by now most have already released patches. By the way, we really owe a big "thank you" to all those dev and QC folks who were working hard on patches while we were celebrating – just imagine the amount of work and testing required here, when changes are made to the holy grail of the operating system. Anyway, after reading the above, I hope you agree that vulnerabilities do not get more critical than these two, so be sure to install those patches ASAP. And, aside of most obvious stuff like your operating systems and hypervisors, be sure not to overlook any storage, network and other appliances – as they all run on some OS that too needs to be patched against these vulnerabilities. And don't forget your smartphones! By the way, here's one good community tracker for all security bulletins (Microsoft is not listed there, but they did push the corresponding emergency update to Windows Update back on January 3rd).
Having said that, there are a couple of important things you should keep in mind about those patches. First, they do come with a performance impact. Again, some folks will want you to think that the impact is negligible, but it's only true for applications with low I/O activity. While many enterprise apps will definitely take a big hit – at least, big enough to account for. For example, installing the patch resulted in almost 20% performance drop in the PostgreSQL benchmark. And then, there is this major cloud service that saw CPU usage double after installing the patch on one of its servers. This impact is caused due to the patch adding significant overhead to so-called syscalls, which is what computer programs must use for any interactions with the outside world.
Last but not least, do know that while those patches fully address Meltdown, they only address a few currently known attacks vector that Spectre enables. Most security specialists agree that Spectre vulnerability opens a whole slew of "opportunities" for hackers, and that the solid fix can only be delivered in CPU hardware. Which in turn probably means at least two years until first such processor appears – and then a few more years until you replace the last impacted CPU. But until that happens, it sounds like we should all be looking forward to many fun years of jumping on yet another critical patch against some newly discovered Spectre-based attack. Happy New Year! Chinese horoscope says 2018 will be the year of the Earth Dog - but my horoscope tells me it will be the year of the Air Gapped Backup.”*

DECENTRALIZED FOOD DELIVERY SERVICE

DECENTRALIZED FOOD DELIVERY SERVICE
SALES BEGINS EARLY FEBUARY
OUR MISSION
In today’s world the technological development strides ahead very quickly. The trends of digitization and automation are already in full swing. The development of the Blockchain technology has led to a new trend– the trend of decentralization. There is not only one catchword to describe this process. The trend is rather a whole philosophy and mindset what shows the importance of cryptocurrencies. Pioneering projects like Ethereum, the DAO, Dash and many more show how decentralization can be defined in a new way with innovative business models, business processes, applications and other services. These projects are not only decentral in their technological architecture and partly in their political organization. They also give cryptocurrency’s owner the chance to be involved in the success. In these cases, the cryptocurrencies are both a means of payment and a profit sharing.
The success of most cryptocurrencies is based on the clear disruptive potential. The cryptocurrencies have not reached their limits yet. They mainly function as investments or rather as a speculation medium and only for a few people as a means of payment. The adaption of the wide mass is essential if we want to push the decentralization with its advantages, visions and mindset to its limits. The full potential and the price stability show up when cryptocurrencies are used as a method to pay on daily basis.
Our mission is to establish cryptocurrencies in millions of people’s everyday life’s
This is the goal we want to achieve with sesame. Our food delivery platform is built on smart contracts on ethereum network. Our Sesame token will be as a native currency on our platform and opens many more features for token holders. Customers can use SST tokens as a payment option and get 15% discounted prices. You get SST as a reward for every submitted valuable review and shared or uploaded images and videos of their tasty foods or deliveries. We will have social network called SesameTalk - where customers share their recipes, thoughts and expressions from recent orders and many more. Customers can tip their delivery drivers for their awesome job. Our platform will be different from current platforms like grubhub and postmates by being on the blockchain which adds more transparency and trustless platform. no more fake reviews because of smart contracts only delivered orders will be reviewed and no more paid search options. The first step is to tokenize an on-demand delivery service for food. The idea behind is to create a usage with daily transactions. The application breaks classic structures because it is developed and expanded by the community (couriers, clients, restaurants and uninvolved ones) and not by a management that wants to make millions in profit. We care about communities’ needs and wishes.
The vision is a decentral structure with a design that will be developed gradually. The aim is to create a common consensus that is on one hand competitive and allows a strategic goal-oriented procedure on the other hand. Furthermore, it increases the welfare of all participants in the system. INTRODUCTION - PROBLEMS
Why an on-demand delivery service?
The food industry services basic needs
We spend more than one hour per day eating– in total this number sums up to 30.000 hours looking at a whole life and $100.000 (14% of our household income). As the food intake is a human basic need and will always be, the food industry is one of the oldest sectors in world’s history. The food industry’s annual sales in the European Union is more than 1.2 trillion. Therefore, it represents the biggest manufacturing industry in the EU (2016).
On-demand delivery services – a sector with hypergrowth
The delivery services sector is in change. In the past 15 years the so-called aggregators (software-only) dominated the delivery services – but in 2013 “new delivery services” arise and became the new stars. Those new delivery services undertake the task of delivering food from restaurants to people’s homes (on-demand) with an own fleet business. The advantages for restaurants are high flexibility as well as no fix staff costs.
Thus, these concepts fit for high quality and unique restaurants and not only for typical fast food restaurants
The concrete problems
Despite the boom of new delivery services, they are in public critique. A lot of restaurants fight with high commissions (approx. 20-30%) and the couriers complain about exploitative working conditions and bad salaries. At the same time the known delivery services are losing sums over ten million dollar every year
High commissions, low wages and still no profit
The business model is highly rated because of its high range and the fast growth, but it still does not make any profits. The fast growth implicates the need of more personnel. Not only couriers are necessary but also staff for administration, sales, acquisition of couriers and staff planning. In addition, even more staff is necessary in the administration. It is common that those companies spend a lot of money for marketing campaigns like coupons, numerous giveaways, fancy poster advertisements and for opening up new delivery districts.
Competition and commercialization against customer benefits – an expensive agent
These high operating expenditures are necessary in the delivery service’s strategy. Important key terms are ‘round of financing’ and ‘flotation’ to ensure the financial survival of the business model as well as the growth. The company has to show a good performance in the contest, which is very expensive, to be attractive for investors. Therefore, it is no surprise that the restaurants and couriers are of secondary importance in this vicious circle.
THE SOLUTION
Decentralization Sesame token – we develop a service which is architectural and political usefully decentralized and possess all significant elements of an on-demand delivery service. It’s a great pleasure to announce to you all that sesame token will be out as a native currency on our platform which has a lot of outstanding features for token holders. Our client can use SST token as a payment option with an advantage of getting 15% discounted prices. You will get SST as a reward for every submitted value review, shared or uploaded images and videos of your tasty food or deliveries We also have social network called SesameTalk - where customers share their recipes, thoughts and expressions from recent orders and many more. Customers can tip their delivery drivers for their awesome job.
Operative process In the order and delivery process a direct peer-to-peer connection of all participated instances will be established with a safe payment transaction and delivery handout. The part of expensive agents is not necessary. The participants in the process (restaurants, couriers and clients) are our focus. They are value creators and earning contributors.
DEVELOPMENT
In a project oriented Open Source Development user can push new developments and can hand in new global and local concepts. The respective board can vote for marketing campaigns, new features, etc. and can allocate a corresponding budget.
THE TECHNICAL IMPLEMENTATION
Introduction – What is blockchain technology?
(This section gives a short overview on the Blockchain technology in a simplified presentation. There is no previous knowledge needed. For further information we advise you to search for deeper information about cryptocurrencies by yourself. If you are already familiar with the topic Blockchain and cryptocurrencies you can skip this part and start reading the next chapter)
‘Blockchain-technologies possess the potential to define the method of how we economize in a new way. Bitcoin is only a first representative.’
But what exactly is the Blockchain? You may probably know the term Blockchain if you think about Bitcoin. The easiest way of description is the comparison with a digital cash book. Network’s participants execute transactions with associated protocols. The so called ‘miners’ register these transactions. The miners verify transactions, combine them to new blocks and extend the Blockchain with the combined blocks. Sender and receiver get a transparent overview of how many coins/tokens have been transferred (in this case the Bitcoin-Blockchain ‘Bitcoins’) with this method. It is an anonymous method because senders and receivers are only listed with their ‘public key’ in the network.
The miners always have a local image installed and they do not need to check it on a central server. Another advantage is the complex encryption which makes the Blockchain tamper-proof. Hackers who want to manipulate the cash book must control 51% of the mining network (network transactions). To gain this computing power, various large companies are insufficient. In addition, this theoretical approach is not a guarantee for a successful attack of the network. In practice, the older the logging of a transaction in the Blockchain, the more difficult is the manipulation. Therefore, the Blockchain is safer, the more miners take part in the network. The miner is being rewarded for the verification and the expansion of the Blockchain due to the designed protocol.
Everyone can own Bitcoins, transfer them and take part as a miner in the mining-process. If we take a closer look on Bitcoin and its rising value we will see that a lot of mining-farms have been established in Asia to collaborate as a mining-pool.
With this technology digital units (coins/tokens) are created and called cryptocurrency. Unlikely to common FIAT currencies (Dollar, Euro, etc.) there is no trust in a state or bank needed. The security is given by the Blockchain itself.
A Blockchain-protocol is being programmed and released. Therefore, it does not have a possessor in its decentralized environment. If the protocol should be changed, the majority of the miners have to be convinced. The technology cannot be used as a cash book only but is also able to function as a data base for random information.
The significant advantage is first that no central authority which provides servers is needed and second that this instance is not responsible for the security and validity of the transactions. The technology is seen as disruptive because this function is the common business model of a lot of service providers like banks, insurances, notaries, etc.)
Why Ethereum?
We feel confident with using the Ethereum-Blockchain as the perfect platform for sesame. Not only because of the large community but also because of the powerful programming language for developing smart contracts. Ethereum offers a various number of possibilities due to its programming language (Solidity) as well as the power to create new processes in different levels and to automatize them independently.
Furthermore, the Ethereum core team will advance the platform’s development with new functions and more stability. In addition, a solution will be offered for scalability issues for example by using the sharding proposal or furthermore the plasma framework.
SESAME TOKEN ECOSYSTEM
The system is now able to show the available restaurants in the customer’s area. Simultaneously, uPath determines the predicted time of delivery range for each restaurant considering order volumes, distance and supplier availability. If the customer has selected a restaurant, the shopping cart can be put together checked again and a method to pay can be chosen. Then the delivery details, the shopping cart and the price included transaction fees (depends on the payment method) are displayed. After a final check the transaction can be performed. The customer gets the confirmation of transaction and the delivery process starts to show up.
Payment
To create a customer friendly experience also Fiat currencies (PayPal and credit cards) are accepted besides the sesame-Token due to an external interface. In addition, common crypto currencies should be available. For customers who are not familiar with crypto currencies, we want to provide the opportunity of using the sesame platform as simple as possible in sense of mass adaption
Nevertheless, the whole protocol is bound to the sesame-Token. Thus, a direct exchange is mandatory. Therefore, an exchange service is implemented. Ideally, some of the planned decentral exchange solutions are fully developed and available as a service at that time. The user’s advantage to use the sesame-Token is that the customer’s will get 15% discounted prices. Furthermore, the usage of the sesame-Token should be rewarded with coupons in the launch phase depending on the budget available
Delivery process
After the order- and payment process has been completed, the delivery process begins. Customers are even eligible to order delivery to their doorstep, can even stroll out for pick up or book a table to eat in the restaurant. The deliverer gets the order confirmation while the restaurant prepares the order. The both protocols interact insofar as the pickup time of the dish can be predicted. In the meantime, the courier can drive to the restaurant and use the displayed route. After the courier has reached the restaurant a quantity visual inspection takes place. The courier validates whether the ordered number of dishes and drinks is correct. There is no need for the courier to check for absolute correctness because this is the restaurant’s responsibility and would make an efficient process impossible. After completing the visual inspection, the courier signs the goods’ acceptance. Then the courier will be led to the customer with the help of uPath or rather with the external map service. If the courier has reached the destination, the delivery takes place. The customer checks whether the order is quantitatively complete and signs the goods’ acceptance to finish the delivery process. Thereupon, uPayment transfers the commissions for the courier, the collectable amount for the local and global board as for the recruiter and the core team. The payment for the restaurant is blocked for approximately two hours via time lock. During that time slot the customer has the chance to open an additional claim, which in turn activates the uSupport protocol. If no customer reaction happens, the money will be transferred to the restaurant after the time lock has been expired. Signatures are being processed with code keys or QR codes. Both will be generated randomly, cryptographically and locally. They are stored on smartphone or other devices. If one of the signatures is absence the transaction cannot be fulfilled completely.
Optimized cost structure
We at sesame follow another approach and dissociate from the aggressive competition. Our aim is to minimize the administrative costs in favor of couriers and restaurants. Sesame is not a service that aims to establish an empire and has to spend high investments for self-marketing. Sesame is more a public accessible protocol which provides the automated and decentralized on-demand delivery service system. The official administration is limited to the core team, what provides system stability, develops legal bases and compiles (related to the financial volume) new developments. The expansion will be reached together with the community and the help of the decentral franchise concept. The original valuable process of the service will be automated and decentralized by the Blockchain and the uChain-Protocol.
INITIAL TOKEN SALE
 It’s a great pleasure to announce to you all that sesame token will be out as a native currency on our platform which has a lot of outstanding features for token holders. Our client can use SST token as a payment option with an advantage of getting 15% discounted prices. You will get SST as a reward for every submitted value review, shared or uploaded images and videos of your tasty food or deliveries. 
At the initial token sale, the sesame-Token will be offered in a public crowd sale. In this context the ERC20 based as crypto currency, the terminus “Token” is correct. The term “Initial Coin Offering” (short ICO) has been established within the public sale of Coins or Tokens, which is equate to the term Token Sale .Sesame Tokens are sold for ETH.

[Hiring] Senior Kubernetes Engineer in San Francisco

I've lost interest in most problems tech companies are solving today. I want to work on important and challenging problems.

TL;DR
What are your advices for a 22 year old university dropout, motivated by progress more than money, that wants nothing more than doing R&D (UX/UI, HCI, knowledge representation, semantic web) to solve what he feels is one of the most important problem of our time: inefficient communication.
Thank you.
Specific questions:
MORE DETAILS BELOW:
Timeline
More about myself
I'm sorry if this looks like some kind of diary. It's not linear, my thoughts are not organized. I write things down as they come. I write about what feels important to me, and I understand they might not sound important to you (like how I got to pick a mobile OS). All of these things lead me to where I am today.
I fell in love with computers early. Then it was the Internet. Eventually I started programming and discovered the open source movement. I hated Microsoft for some reasons, and only used Linux from 2006 to 2009.
When I was about 5, I knew I wanted to be an inventor. When I was 8, I wanted to work with computers. At 11, I knew that I wanted to study Computer Engineering. At 15, I was convinced that I would go for the PhD.
I always had a fascination for Apple products, it started with iPods. I watched every Keynote. I'm fascinated by Steve Jobs and relate a lot to him. I never owned a Mac or a iPhone, but I owned many iPods and an iPad. I don't consider myself an Apple fanboy.
The iPod triggered an interest for mobile computing. I started to learn everything about mobile computers, smartphones, etc. I still do to this day.
Before getting my first smartphone, I spent a lot of time comparing platforms and deciding which one I would get. I decided webOS was the superior mobile OS, and waited for the HP Pre 3 to be released. But HP killed it.
At the same time, I discovered Windows Phone. I always hated Windows Mobile (with the start menu and stylus), and it was a shock when I discovered Windows Phone. Metro completely changed my opinion of Microsoft, and I immediatly bought a Windows Phone and started developping apps. Thanksfully, I was forced to learn Microsoft technologies at school, so it got easy. That's when I stopped hating Microsoft and embraced them.
Most of my professional experience has been related to mobile. I did QA on mobile for 18 months. I started building Windows Phone apps in my free time. I had an internship as an iOS developer. I'm now working with Xamarin to build applications on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. I see myself staying in the field of mobile for a long time.
Ever since I first saw a Palm Pilot or an iPod, I started drawing mobile devices. I loved to design the hardware, but my main focus was on software. At 12, I was already drawing UI that - I feel - had more potential than what we're using today. People would manipulate things and actions, not apps. I never stopped thinking about how computer UI/UX could be improved, with a focus on mobile.
My job is interesting, and I learn a lot. However, I don't feel I'm reaching my full potential. I always wanted to do Research and work on challenging and unresolved problems (in knowledge representation, HCI, UX/UI, etc), but I don't see myself doing 3-4 years in school learning stuff I already know just to get my bachelor degree, so that I could start a Master and eventually apply for PhD. When I quit, I was convinced that I would work for myself, or start my own company, and that a degree would be useless. I'm not sure what to think anymore.
I've been following startups a lot since 2010. Most of what I read is about startups in California, mostly SF. I gained a fascination for the United States, and couldn't stop thinking how great things are there. In Canada, I can't barely name 10 important tech companies. We have BlackBerry and CGI, while the US has Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Yahoo, Palantir, Twitter, etc. Bell Labs was in the US. Xerox Parc was in the US. This is where it's at and that's where I want to be.
I think I'm becoming jealous of tech workers in the US. Their salaries are 2-3 times what I'm paid here (for the same job), and the cost of living is overall much lower there (other than rent in specific cities). I'm wondering why I'm staying here, and then I realize that my lack of degree makes it very hard for me to move to the US.
Every day, I'm thinking of starting a company. I have tons of ideas. I have a vision. I'm obsessed. I want to change the way people communicate, through technology. I'm convinced it's one of the most important problem of our time, but I struggle to find people that share this opinion, or care enough about this problem to do something about it. Finding investors would kickstart the process, but they're not as generous and risk-tolerant here as in the US. It's probably going to be difficult anyway, as it's way up there in term of risk.
I'm not sure I want to be a programmer anymore. I'm not comfortable using archaic tools and methodologies, knowing that we're capable of much better. Programming is too manual, system architecture is more appealing. I don't get how most of what programmers do today is not automated. I like defining the "what", not fiddle with the "how". At work, I tend to envy the job of the designers, especially the UX part.
Am I delusional? Am I lazy? Am I asking too much? I don't know. What I know is that I struggle to find any opportunity to work on problems that I deeply care about. I feel like I'm wasting most of my time working on solutions to meaningless problems. I feel most developers are.
