1/5. La “dé-totémisation” de la “#Blockchain” devrait se
poursuivre : on comprendra de plus en plus que la “Blockchain” est
une notion ambigüe qui a suscité trop d’illusions et de fantasmes. Des
arnaques et projets absurdes continueront à fleurir mais en nombre
plus réduit
2/5. Le #bitcoin restera un tabou inquiétant pour les élites et la plupart
des observateurs qui continueront à le regarder avec une méfiance
superstitieuse et à l’accuser de tous les maux de la Terre

Also: Retweeting this in order to avoid spamming this thread and getting blocked again. I will continue here. @woonomic
What a mess.. I just noticed that most of the tweets do not seem to be viewable from the outside -but only for myself- due to the autoblock. Copy paste below in order to create a coherent structure/thread.

Hoping this does not happen again when I write everything on my own wall.
Related to your claim that [M = PQ/Vu + I/Vi].

First issue: Why do you over complicate things by splitting up the 'utility economy' and 'investment economy' when you're interested in the aggregate network valuation?

Over the past weeks, the 🇪🇺 Parliament has issued two reports on #blockchain. I'll summarize the key points below.

👇
First, an Opinion by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, which considers the tech 'capable of decentralising forms of human interaction, the markets, banking and international trade'.

europarl.europa.eu/committees/en/…
It informed the 2nd report I'll mention below and focused on the #GDPR, stressing the capacity of blockchains for data protection by design. It mentions zk-SNARKs specifically (but remains mum on implications for AML etc).

THREAD: QUESTION FOR ALL SECURITY PEOPLE — in this day and age, would you buy a single-vendor IT security solution which advertised itself as "the gold standard" for data security protection?

Would you give that claim any credence whatsoever?
The infosec world has a long-established term for such glib claims: "Snake Oil" - this terminology goes back to the 1990s or earlier, for vendors who were selling sub-par cryptography as "military-grade" or other supposed but meaningless description interhack.net/people/cmcurti…
Particularly telling for "Snake Oil" are the words and phrases that are used to describe the security solution, process, or tool, its development, mechanism, or vendor:

* "Trust Us, We Know What We're Doing"
* "Unbreakability"
* "Military Grade"

So many terms floating around lately in relation to #DecentralizedNetworks, protocols, staking, and mining. The following Twitter-Wiki is how I understand all of these closely-related, but subtly different concepts. . . 👇
#DecentralizedNetwork - In our #Blockchain context, a P2P network with a protocol that can trustlessly transfer value in the form of #DigitalAssets.
#GeneralizedMining - Extraction of on-protocol compensation from #DecentralizedNetworks through the provision of #SupplySideServices, liquidity, or alpha-generating activities. (cc @coinfund_io, @JoeLallouz)

#NEO gave an update to the decentralization process today. The long awaited process of making NEO politically decentralized (it is geographically decentralized already) will finally speed up in the next months.
If you missed the blog post, here is the link
neo.org/blog/details/4…
But what does that mean for #NEO?
First, NEO isn't the average PoW- or PoS-blockchain, NEO utilizes dBFT consensus which comes with several advantages but also some downsides. You can read about it here:

docs.neo.org/en-us/basic/co…
One significant downside to this model is that you have to trust most (66%) of the consensus nodes to not be bad players (its nearly the same for PoW and PoS, isn't it?)
Consensus nodes aren't competing for consensus, they're cooperating. This leads to one significant advantage:

1/ TWEETSTORM to answer ?s many asked abt #Wyoming's new #blockchain bills, including blockchain-friendly #bank bill. Bottom line: in addition to enacting 5 blockchain-friendly bills in 2018, 6 more bills have an elevated chance of becoming law bc they're now "committee bills"...
2/ ...& more bills are coming. Told ya' #Wyoming isn't done yet! Major opposition from the banking industry to the #bank bill & we weren't sure of outcome, but it v powerful committee endorsed it 13-1 & the only vote against it came from a banker. Next step=legislature in Jan...
3/ ...with momentum behind it (tho it's not law yet!). WY Banking Commissioner approached us after the 13-1 vote came in, to start rule-making work now. We're forming a group thru Digital Asset Trade Assoc (@asset_trade)--email info@digitalasset.org if you'd like to join that...

I have a feeling that most people do not understand the scope of the St. Petersburg News for $NEO yet.

If you haven't been following, here is the link:

neonewstoday.com/general/neo-st…

Let me try to explain:

1/8

$crypto
Yesterday $NEO held a meetup in Russia and announced a new developer group that will coexist with @coz_official, @NewEconoLab and @NeoResearch_NEO. It is called @neospcc and is actually a research and development company. @fabwa, a CoZ member, put big efforts into this

2/8
NSPCC is going to develop NeoFS, a distributed Filesystem on #blockchain for the #smarteconomy.

The development team acquired a lot of great developers, some of them former employeers of Dell, Samsung, Whatsapp etc.

They really seem to be have a top notch team there.

0/ A massive 24 hours in the world of #crypto and #blockchain.

To help you stay on top of it all, I've put together this thread. Just doing my bit to make your day a bit easier!

OKEX straight up asked us to increase volume by any means necessary or get delisted. Wonder why the SEC won't approve ETFs? 🤔

Sry OKEX we'd rather focus on our business not yours.

@SilvioSchembri @JosephMuscat_JM this is why 🇲🇹 needs to be very selective.

(Continued)
Bittrex is the most legit exchange, period. No bullshit fees to get listed, no fake volume or manipulation, the future of Blockchain tokens will be tokenized securities on approved exchanges with ring fenced custody. These other exchanges are in trouble long term.
The fact that OKEX charges token teams massive listing fees then forces them to fake liquidity is 😂.

Exchanges need to stop robbing token teams & start building platforms to enable innovation & access.

They need real tokens like $UKG more then we need them.

We had our final class of Cryptocurrencies, #Blockchain Technologies & the Law yesterday!

At long last, here is the syllabus. (And yes, it is already out of date in this high-speed #crypto world.)

ledgerprof.files.wordpress.com/2018/11/blockc…
The course, as with the tech itself, is a work in progress. Thanks to my students for going along for the ride and to @VladZamfir for joining us for the governance class!
Some of my learnings:

It's really hard to decide how much time to spend on basics of the tech before moving into legal questions. I wish students could have a full course on the tech, its historical antecedents, its history over the last few years, key players in the space, etc.
