    It's going to be huge, and running on Algorand as well. Algorand is slaying it for creatives of all types. Big news earlier today that a 137 year old Italian copyright management firm, SIAE (Society of Italian Authors and Editors) recently moved 4 million copyrights onto the blockchain as NFT's.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/Algorand/...23062776668163


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In other news...

    Hot on the heels of Elon Musks Bitcoin and Tesla announcement earlier today, BitGo continue the push for Bitcoins mass adoption. Announcing 24 major companies that accept payment for their products and services in Bitcoin.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/BitGo/sta...05014145765377

    Big news that Fidelity have filed a Bitcoin ETF today as well. Whale games currently trying to dump the price below 53k, but 53k is the level that keeps Bitcoin a trillion dollar market cap asset. Could be a tough line of resistance to break, especially with Fidelity seeking regulatory permission to get involved, or are they the whales trying to dump it down to 48-43K so they can scoop up more Bitcoins at a discount? Make or break week for Bitcoin. Everyones expecting a dump when the Futures trading contracts expire on Friday. Shaking out the weak hands and the over-leveraged speculators before continuing the next phase of the bull run?

    ==============
    Asset management giant Fidelity files for a bitcoin ETF

    A new filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission indicates that asset management giant Fidelity is seeking to create a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).

    The Wise Origin Bitcoin ETF is the latest entrant in a growing race to launch a bitcoin exchange-traded product in the United States. According to the filing, a firm called FD Funds Management LLC is the sponsor of the fund, with Fidelity Service Company, Inc. serving as administrator. Per the document, FD Funds Management LLC shares the same Boston, MA address as Fidelity's office.

    Fidelity Digital Assets, the asset manager's crypto-focused arm, will serve as custodian.

    The ETF, if approved, will also employ Fidelity's in-house bitcoin price index, per the filing.

    "The Trust’s investment objective is to seek to track the performance of bitcoin, as measured by the performance of the Fidelity Bitcoin Index PR (the “Index”), adjusted for the Trust’s expenses and other liabilities," the filing notes, explaining elsewhere:

    "The Trust provides direct exposure to bitcoin, and the Shares of the Trust are valued on a daily basis using the same methodology used to calculate the Index. The Trust provides investors with the opportunity to access the market for bitcoin through a traditional brokerage account without the potential barriers to entry or risks involved with holding or transferring bitcoin directly, acquiring it from a bitcoin spot market, or mining it."
    The fund's name is similar to the Wise Origin Bitcoin Index Fund I, launched in August 2020 by Fidelity. As reported at the time by Bloomberg, that passively-managed fund was Fidelity's first foray into offering a bitcoin-only fund product to qualified investors.

    "The digital assets ecosystem has grown significantly in recent years, creating an even more robust marketplace for investors and accelerating demand among institutions. An increasingly wide range of investors seeking access to bitcoin has underscored the need for a more diversified set of products offering exposure to digital assets," a Fidelity spokesperson told The Block.

    Fidelity's effort represents the sixth of its kind within the U.S., joining WisdomTree Investments, VanEck Associates Corp., NYDIG Asset Management, First Advisors/SkyBridge and Valkyrie Digital Assets.

    Market-watchers have speculated that recent ETF developments in Canada may spur regulators in the U.S. to action on a bitcoin ETP.

    This is pretty awesome! Software called CudoMiner. Mine Monero and get paid in Algorand. You get 5000 satoshi (or 2.4 Algorand) as a bonus just for signing up. My old MacBook only has enough processing power to earn 1.8 Algorand a month. Worth keeping it running in the background though, could be an extra $180 or more when Algo shoots for the stars in the future.

    Update: had to shut the mining down on my MacBook, not got the hashing power required, which was overheating the system. An article on mining requirements for anyone interested.

    French restereraunt mints it’s own cryptocurrency on Algorand to help stay afloat during financially challenging government shutdowns.

    Flottescoin (https://algoexplorer.io/asset/102821655).

    ==========
    Flottescoin Launched as Lifeline of Struggling French Resto

    Flottescoin is a new digital currency that the Flottes restaurant introduced in response to the growing adoption of cryptocurrencies. The cryptocurrency is also reportedly the Parisian dining establishment’s lifeline amid the ongoing coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.

    According to the report posted online by global news outlet Euro Weekly News, the Flottes restaurant has launched into the virtual currency world just as the European nation enters yet another lockdown. The Parisian dining establishment located on the French capital’s Rue Cambon is reportedly attempting to entice more diners and save its business.

    Hence, it decided to embark on the digital currency world with its Flottescoins. We are delighted to learn about this report in Paris. We want to highlight that the use of cryptocurrencies in various business establishments is truly gaining ground.

    Sarah Mamodaly and her company, Humans4Help, enabled the Flottes restaurant to engage on its adventure in the cryptocurrency realm. She affirmed that restaurants today grapple with the COVID-19 repercussions, including the lack of tourists, confinement, and dining establishments’ closures. The Humans4Help’s marketing manager cited that, through the Flottescoins, the Flottes restaurant can achieve its aim of facilitating new income sources.

    Mamodaly remarked that offering a new payment method, specifically using digital currencies, is the best technique to help business people overcome the COVID-19 crisis. She said that using virtual assets like the fledgling Flottescoins provides entrepreneurs with the essential financial support they need.

    Furthermore, Mamodaly gave more ideas about how to use the Flottescoins. She relayed that plenty of French people own a cryptocurrency and that some of them confirm they are all set to spend it in shops and restaurants. Mamodaly said that the Flottes restaurant’s diners who pay for their meals could get Flottescoins as change returned to them. This arrangement enables the customers to have a handful of cryptocurrencies they can spend on their succeeding visits to the restaurant.

    Mamodaly pointed out that Flottescoins help build customer loyalty while also support the Flottes restaurant’s owner and operations. She added that whether the diner visits the restaurant, orders online, or pays using cryptocurrency, cash, or bank card, he would receive his change in Flottescoins within the dining establishment

    We support the Flottes restaurant in its adoption of cryptocurrencies in its operations. We are mindful that Parisian restaurant owners have suffered badly from the economic and health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if these European restaurateurs offer delivery or take-away services, the enforcement of lockdowns and COVID-19-related health protocols has adversely affected their sales inevitably.

    With the Flottescoins, we believe that restaurant operations can recover somehow. We also believe that using cryptocurrencies in France with residents supportive of them will enable these digital assets to gain more acceptance and relevance as we deal with the global health emergency.

    Another company to pay attention to is QuantStamp, they seem to be working with Hedera to secure and audit any CBDC stable coins that’ll be operating on the Hedera network.

    Formally verifying Hederas stablecoin framework

    QuantStamp has an impressive team and are already working with lots of leaders in the cryptocurrency industry. Positioning themselves to be the Deloitte of the cryptosphere. Considering the team behind this and the companies and institutions they’re already working with, I’d say the QuantStamp digital token is currently undervalued at less than 4cents. I’m adding a small bag to my portfolio.

    Do you have an understanding about what kind of utility the #QSP has?

    I love QSP, such an overlooked token, it’s been my second most profitable investment after Hbar. Now priced at 12cents, up 200% in a month. Solid fundamentals behind this one.
    Besides it’s utility as a speculative investment, you’d have to build your own blockchain before you could actually use their token for anything yourself. Although you have just reminded me that I should probably buy more before altcoin season kicks in, since it pumped to 88cents in the 2018 bull market.

    ===========
    Quantstamp Advantages
    Blockchain Agnostic
    Quantsatmp is blockchain agnostic and has audited client systems on Ethereum, Hyperledger, Binance Chain, EOS, Polkadot, Cardano, AVA Labs, and Corda.

    Leaders in Blockchain Cybersecurity
    Quantstamp wrote the first textbook on Smart Contract Security and employs a top team of PhDs and security professionals who have a combined total of over 1000 Google Scholar citations.

    Sophisticated and In-Depth Audits
    No matter the blockchain, Quantstamp provides in-depth audits of consensus mechanisms, off-chain code, the networking stack, and complex smart contract systems.

    Fast, Efficient, & High-Quality Audits
    The Quantstamp auditing process looks like this:

    Meeting with a Quantstamp business lead and lead auditor.
    Assess the workload and provide a quote.
    Quantstamp auditors independently review the project’s code and documentation. They certify the security of its smart contracts, perform automated analyses on the code, run the test suite, and measure test coverage.
    Privately send the project team a detailed audit report with solutions and recommendations

    Once the project team fixes the issues and best practices, Quantstamp runs the audit again and sends the project an updated audit report and certificate (or no).
    Enterprise Blockchain Solutions

    Not only does Quantstamp provide blockchain security audits, but they also provide fast, efficient, high-security blockchain implementations with enterprise features. They help enterprises with their blockchain goals from idea to launch.

    Quantstamp was founded by Richard Ma and Steven Stewart in June 2017.

    Richard Ma, co-founder, and CEO of Quantstamp is a former Software Engineer and Senior Quantitative Strategist at Tower Research where he developed software that handled millions of dollars using automated high-frequency strategies.

    Ma also worked as a Quant Derivatives Trader at Archleon Group, he was a Portfolio Manager at Palladion Capital, and he’s a member of the Forbes Technology Council and serves as the Co-Chair of Smart Contract Alliance for the Chamber of Digital Commerce.

    Following these experiences, he was inspired to found Quantstamp after investing in the infamous DAO which was hacked due to a combination of vulnerabilities.

    Steven Stewart co-founder and CTO of Quantstamp previously worked as a Software Engineer and Computer Systems Analyst at the Canadian Department of National Defense. He also co-founded Many Trees Inc., a GPU computing startup, and worked as a Software Developer at Magnetic Forensics.

    Apart from Quantstamp’s brilliant founders, its team is made up of PhDs, security professionals, and operators who come from companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Goldman Sachs, BMW, Visa, IDG Ventures, and MathWorks.

    As well, the Quanstamp team has a combined total of over 1000 Google Scholar citations.

    3. What is $QSP Token Used For?

    The native cryptocurrency of the Quantstamp protocol is $QSP and it has the following use cases:

    Payment for Quantstamp services
    Automated Software Verification
    Automated Bounty Payout System
    Governance


    Payment for Quantstamp Services
    Blockchain projects and smart contract developers can pay for Quantstamp’s auditing and verification services with $QSP tokens. These services include: Expert Security Audits, Enterprise Blockchain Design & Implementation, and Automatic Smart Contract Scans.

    Automated Software Verification
    When the Quantstamp protocol receives automated auditing requests, validation nodes can start performing security checks to validate the smart contract. These nodes must stake QSP to ensure they don’t act maliciously and for their computational effort, they are rewarded with QSP tokens.

    Automated Bounty Payout System
    When a smart contract is submitted for auditing by the Quantstamp protocol, it must include a set of QSP tokens for bounty rewards and a deadline for when Bug Finders can submit issues. If no bugs are found by the deadline, the QSP bounty reward is returned.

    Governance
    QSP token holders hold governance rights over the Quantstamp protocol. The governance model uses a time-locked multisig in which any token holder can propose a change or upgrade to the protocol in which other QSP token holders can vote on. The more approvals a proposal has, the sooner it can be set into motion.

    4. What are the products of Quantstamp?
    Quantstamp has 3 industry-leading blockchain products:

    Expert Blockchain Security Audits
    Automated Smart Contract Scans
    Express Enterprise Blockchain Solutions
    ==========

    Plus it’s not far off from reaching its Max supply so once the limit is reached and more and more companies are forced to buy their tokens to use their services, could be a great one to hodl for 5 years.

    Quote https://cryptorank.io/price/quantstamp
    The max. supply of Quantstamp that will ever be issued is 976.44 Millions tokens, and the current supply of QSP in circulation is 713.80 Millions tokens.

    Another big use case for Algorand (as if it doesn’t have enough already). Swingby tokens seem to have decent token economics. Low market cap, 1 billion max supply, currently trading at 72 cents. Might be worth adding a bag to your holdings since it looks like they’ll be a core component of integrating the DeFi blockchains.

    ========
    Swingby receives grant to bring Skybridge to the Algorand ecosystem

    Swingby’s Skybridge provides trustless bridges between Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain (BSC), and other blockchains. It executes fast token swaps using a secure network of Metanodes that are powered by multi-party computing and layer-2 technology. Ultimately, the Skybridge enables users to move a 1-trillion dollar market cap digital asset like Bitcoin into the $50B DeFi ecosystem, as well as supports the seamless flow of liquidity between blockchains.
    On December 28th, Swingby launched their first Skybridge which bridged Bitcoin to Ethereum via WBTC. After a successful launch, with the bridge processing over $5M weekly and over $45M worth of Swingby tokens as bonded collateral, the team set their sights on the Binance Smart Chain which is expected to release this month (March 2021).
    Swingbys number 1 goal has always been to “bring Bitcoin to DeFi”. To accomplish that, the team has committed to building new Bitcoin bridges and working with blockchains that look likely to become a new major source of new DeFi opportunities. Introducing Algorand.
    What is Algorand?
    Algorand is the world’s first open-source, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake blockchain protocol for the next generation of financial products. This blockchain, the Algorand protocol, is the brainchild of Turing Award-winning cryptographer Silvio Micali. Algorand is powering the DeFi evolution by delivering blazingly fast transactions, at a truly global scale, with extremely low costs. Thus enabling the creation of new financial tools and services, potential for disruptive new payments platforms, bringing assets on-chain quickly and easily, and providing powerful and robust Layer 1 and Layer 2 Smart Contracts.

    The bridge

    Swingby will bring Bitcoin to the Algorand ecosystem with the launch of a BTC to Algorand bridge, as well as an Ethereum to Algorand bridge which will allow existing ERC20 tokens to seamlessly travel from one chain to the other. Once the two bridges have been launched, liquidity providers that exist on the Algorand chain will be integrated into the bridges via Skypools.

    These 3 developments, which will be released in the form of separate milestones, will:

    Help Bitcoin to become much more available in the world of DeFi.
    Help utility chains that are expanding their footprint in DeFi to compete with the Ethereum chain which currently has 99% of DeFi value locked into its smart contracts.

    Expand the Swingby Skybridge ecosystem, by providing another bridge and adding additional use cases. With the launch of a new bridge, 50+ additional Metanode operator slots will become available.

    “We are extremely excited to start building on the Algorand chain. As we have always said, Swingby’s main goal is to improve DeFi and bring our technology to projects that are willing to invest in the development of their DeFi ecosystem — Algorand has clearly shown us that they are willing to do that. We truly believe that Algorand will be a major player in DeFi and we want to be there as their primary liquidity bridge when that happens.”— Jacob Plaster, Swingby CEO

    “The Algorand Foundation is delighted to support the team at Swingby Labs in bringing their innovative Skybridge technology to the Algorand ecosystem. Enabling a truly global, interconnected DeFi ecosystem will further accelerate the adoption of blockchain based finance systems. We look forward to a long and exciting relationship with Swingby Labs” — Sean Lee, CEO Algorand Foundation
    The new developments mentioned above are the tip of the iceberg for the collaboration between Swingby Labs and the Algorand Foundation, the teams will work together to support more innovative and exciting features for DeFi users into the future.

    This is a great interview between Algorands Keli Callaghan and the head of business development for a 150 year old Italian coffee company, Caffe Barbera .
    Love how this guy has clearly been a cryptocurrency enthusiast for a while and has used the government shutdowns as an excuse to adopt cryptocurrency payments for their products. He goes over the 3 main reasons why they chose Algorand as their primary e-commerce payment system and also how they plan on utilising Algorand for tokenising their supply chain metrics, enabling greater transparency to the lifecycle journey their coffee beans go on.
    They’re also offering a 20% discount for anyone paying in Algorand.

    Can’t wait to start ordering coffee with my Algo staking rewards!

    There didn’t seem to be much correlation between the astrology cycles in March to the Bitcoin price. Let’s see if the April forecast from Rick Levine has any good calls. Should shape up to be an interesting month if price follows any of the planets.

    ======
    The April Astrology Report is now live on YouTube.

    April is a month of progress, but it might not be as steady as we wish. The month begins on a serious note of Saturnian restraint and ends with the shock of a Sun-Uranus conjunction. The cosmos seems impatient when mental Mercury jumps into assertive Aries on April 3. Four planets in Aries should be enough to push through any resistance and land us into new territory. In fact, we might believe that everything is finally moving quickly, but we realize that it’s partly an illusion when Mars squares dreamy Neptune on April 9. Thankfully, the Aries New Moon on April 11 is the sign we’ve been waiting for; the starting gate opens and we are allowed to run. Nevertheless, the energy is intense as Venus squares unrelenting Pluto. Passions come to the surface, possible creating a power struggle when the Sun and Mercury each squares Pluto on April 16 and April 17, respectively. We may further fuel the fires of disagreement while combative Mars forms an irritating quincunx to Pluto, also on April 17.

    Forward movement slows considerably when Venus enters slow-and-steady Taurus on April 14, followed by Mercury and the Sun on April 19. But these three planets catch up with progressive Uranus on April 22, April 23, and April30, respectively. Nevertheless, we may still run into trouble if we’re unwilling to meet our obligations, if our work is sloppy, or if we take shortcuts when Mars, Venus, and Mercury each form stressful aspects to taskmaster Saturn on April 19, April 24, and April 25. The pattern of breaking out of the status quo (Uranus) followed by another round of constraint (Saturn) becomes a theme for the month as a fractal of the yearlong Saturn-Uranus square. A powerhouse Scorpio Full Moon on April 26 reveals the hidden complexity of continuing on our set path. The speedy Aries energy from the beginning of the month transforms int unrelenting determination with four planets in obstinate Taurus. We are beginning to understand that we will reach our goals, but it is a marathon and not a sprint. Pluto’s retrograde station on April 27 confirms the need for persistence while the Sun’s conjunction with irrepressible Uranus on April 30 ends the month with a burst of newly found freedom.

    Default Re: Cryptocurrency: which alt-coins are the globalist corporations backing and why?

    I just skimmed through all 11 pages of this thread--very interesting!!

    I didn't see any mention of Theta which has been promoted by Bix Weir and others. It's not easy to buy since it's not on Coinbase but I've been buying XLM (Stellar) on Coinbase and then using simpleswap.io to convert and send to my Theta wallet. Apparently, XLM has low transaction fees so it's the recommended crypto to buy for exchanging...

    Maybe Bix is taking me for a ride but I'm only playing with money I can afford to lose at this point.

    Just a warning--I lost my money on my first attempt of using simpleswap.io because I didn't cut/paste the XLM "memo" properly. Fortunately, I only lost about $20 but now I'm extremely careful to double check every cut and paste to make sure they are all correct.

    I want to buy some KIN but im struggling with how to do it. Would you guys recommend Gate.io or FLX? On FLX i can buy USD with my bank and then transfer it to KIN and on Gate.io i have to transfer the USD from somwhere else. Maybe this brings with it some extra costs too? I have to wait a week now for the ID process on FLX. Its a whole lot of researching how to do this stuff.

    I’d always put Theta in the ‘hype coin’ category, not because I know anything about it or have looked into it, just because it’s one I’ve heard a lot of buzz about, yet despite the buzz, I’m still clueless as to what it’s utility as a blockchain is. What’s its unique selling point? Let’s take a closer look.

    CINEDIGM INTEGRATES THETA NETWORK TO LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE THETA-POWERED CHANNELS ON CONTV.COM
    -
    LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 1, 2021 / Theta Labs, the leading decentralized video delivery network, is partnering with Cinedigm (NASDAQ:CIDM), one of the leading American media and digital entertainment companies. The collaboration will see Cinedigm integrate the native Theta peer-to-peer streaming technology, blockchain protocol and Theta Fuel (TFUEL) micropayments on its CONtv Anime branded channel page. It allows visitors to CONtv to view its large library of anime, sci-fi, horror and cult shows and films directly using Theta's fully decentralized technology and protocol.

    Cinedigm's owned and operated streaming channel CONtv Anime is one of the leading destinations for anime fans with a wide range of iconic anime series & movies, including cyberpunk, supernatural tales, gripping dramas and epic fantasy adventures. Consumer interest in premium content remains strong within the OTT ad-supported space as traditional cable and satellite services continue to lose subscribers seeking low-cost alternatives and new options for their entertainment needs.

    "We're thrilled to integrate Theta network peer-to-peer streaming infrastructure to power our 24x7 live channels on CONtv.com, letting our user base experience the benefits of Theta decentralized streaming," said Tony Huidor, SVP, Products & Technology and General Manager of Digital Networks at Cinedigm. "We view this as a strategic long-term opportunity, a key differentiator in the industry and we believe it will contribute to sustained viewer growth and engagement in the premium OTT segment."

    The integration on Cinedigm's site follows a similar recent integration of the Theta technology on the World Poker Tour, Shout! Factory, GFUEL and other platforms, further driving adoption of Theta's ground-breaking blockchain-powered decentralized video delivery infrastructure.

    Theta integration allows leading entertainment and streaming platforms like Cinedigm to lower their video delivery CDN costs by 50% or more, while increasing user engagement, viewing times and monetization. Users in return can earn FUEL rewards for sharing video content utilizing their excess bandwidth and computing resources. Theta blockchain's innovative approach enables fans to earn as much as $10-$15/month simply by watching their favorite content on their browser with no download required.

    "We're continuing to drive rapid adoption of our patented decentralized video streaming technology in the high-growth digital media and entertainment industry," said Mitch Liu, CEO and co-founder of Theta Labs. "We welcome Cinedigm to the Theta family to further expand the Theta network reach to millions of consumers worldwide. This along with Theta's Edge network of over 30,000 global nodes and validator partners including Google, Samsung and Sony will transform and shape the future of digital media."

    ABOUT CINEDIGM

    For more than twenty years, Cinedigm (NASDAQ:CIDM) has led the digital transformation of the entertainment industry. Today, Cinedigm entertains hundreds of millions of consumers around the globe by providing premium content, streaming channels and technology services to the world's largest media, technology and retail companies.

    Theta's enterprise validator and governance program is led by global leaders including Google, Samsung, Sony Europe, Binance, Blockchain Ventures, and gumi. THETA.tv, the first application built on the Theta Network, leverages its existing user base of millions of esports viewers to seed the Theta P2P mesh network along with content partnerships with Lionsgate, MGM Studios, CONtv, NASA, and others.

    Looks pretty solid. Potential to be a decentralised version of Netflix. Will probably be a great speculative investment for this bull market and the upcoming alt-coin season as Bitcoin dominance starts to drop.

    Cant say I’ve heard of Gate.io, FLX or KIN. Looking it up now though, you know kin has a total coin supply of 10 trillion coins. So if KIN was to grow in market cap to rival bitcoins $1 trillion, each kin would be worth $0.1. Which, to be fair would be 293x where it’s current price is now. Might be a long hodl to see some serious gains though.

    =========
    What is Kin?

    Making sense of what Kin promises to achieve as a currency starts by having a clear overview of its native platform – Kik. In short, Kik is a mobile, free-to-use messaging app, similar to Viber, launched by the Canadian company called Kik Interactive. Armed with some unique features, such as its insistence on anonymity and featuring an internal dedicated browser, it managed to attract some 300 million users worldwide (as of December 2018) following its launch, with most of them being of younger age.

    Kin cryptocurrency was designed as part of an earlier effort to monetize the use of the platform which promised the use of free services from the outset. Following the decision to move away from the standard advertising schemes, the Kik developers saw an opportunity to create a system of “Kik Points” which the users would earn by interacting with targeted ads or playing various games on the platform. Once acquired, the Points could be used to buy digital stuff, such as special stickers and emojis on the Kik. The model proved to be successful with the audience, prompting the developers to try to apply similar principles in designing a full-blown cryptocurrency with a global ambition.

    What is Kin Trying to Achieve?

    The rise of the blockchain technology went hand in hand with the Kik team’s ambition to create a virtual asset whose use would be no more complicated than sending a message on its instant messaging system. Following its announcement back in 2017, Kin drew public attention by making a promise to resolve various issues which its developers perceived as hampering the establishment of a modern digital economy:

    Kin aims to promote the creation of an open ecosystem of apps which would be focused on the users themselves. This came as a response to what the Kin developers saw as the unwelcome domination of several large digital players that are trying to monetize the very users they profess to serve and destroy the competition in the process. With Kin, each participant in its ecosystem can be compensated for any new value created online, no matter if they are developers, full-time content creators or just contributing users.

    Kin wants to create a decentralized global digital economy system based on larger communities, without the need for a single all-powerful authority managing it. Instead of ceding power to a company or organization which pays little attention to the customers’ needs or their privacy, the main stakeholder in the Kin community are the consumers of a certain product (such as an app), its supporters, operators and investors. By avoiding to rely on advertising only, these participants would be incentivized to create economic value and share its benefits among themselves.

    The future Kin community hopes to level a playing field in which one’s successful product can promote the success of other solutions. With that in mind, the Kin platform plans to include support for free circulation of apps and their linking within its ecosystem. Based on this, the Kin hopes to create a community of developers who are willing to support each other and their creations and move away as far as possible from the existing corporate practices which pit one product against the other and have them exist in isolated environments.

    Great conversation between Scott Thiel, head of the global law firm DLA Piper, representing their Tokenisation service TOKO. Yat Siu, head of Animoca Brands, a leader in digital entertainment, gaming and artificial intelligence technologies, and Mance Harmon, CEO of Hedera Hashgraph.

    Out of all the blockchains offering tokenisation services, how many will survive the regulatory apocalypse once governments get overly involved. Scott Thiel says DLA Piper chose Hedera because, as a law firm, they have an idea what those regulatory requirements might be, and Hedera is one of the best positioned to take advantage of those regulatory environments while others might stumble.

    Ayman Mufleh digs up some curious connections on one of his favourite tokens. Singularity Net, an AI marketplace. Apparantly Jeffrey Epstein was a big supporter of Singularity Net, and injected some money into the projects.

    One of the comments under this video: “Michael Saylor is the Chuck Norris of crypto”!
    Another good interview though, this time at the MIT blockchain expo 2021.
