💡Zététique ou Autodéfense intellectuelle ? (thread)

Lors de mon enseignement des bases de la #PenséeCritique, la « #zététique » et l'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle m'ont été présentées de façon confondue : il m'a été longtemps difficile de faire la part des choses entre les deux.👇
De plus, sans même parler d'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle, la définition du terme #Zététique elle-même semble être différente d'une personne à l'autre.
Je vais ici vous en exposer ma compréhension depuis les cours de @RichMonvoisin à son utilisation dans la communauté des #SceptiquesRationnel·les française et parler brièvement des idéologies associées comme l'#AutodéfenseIntellectuelle afin d'éviter les épouvantails.

Are you trying to understand #THORChain? ⛓️

Here's what I learned about THORChain and the best resources I've found to read more about it. 🚀

A thread 🧵👇
@THORChain is a decentralized cross-chain automated market maker (AMM) that allows users to trade spot Tokens across blockchains.

It allows users to trade in the native asset, not a synthetic wrapped version like #wBTC.
Trading over centralized exchanges presents risk through:

⚈ counterparty risk
⚈ the time that it takes to send assets to #CEX and withdraw again
⚈ forced seizure of assets through regulators or governments
⚈ hacks

In the most significant #blockchain upgrade in history, the #Ethereum network is moving from a #proofofwork (#PoW) to a #proofofstake (#PoS) consensus mechanism to confirm transaction blocks, known as “The Merge”

Read more and debunk myths: bit.ly/3uQ4RZg
1/ The two major upgrades, PoS #consensus and #sharding, promise to deliver fast transaction times with low network costs without sacrificing scalability, security, or decentralization. #TheMerge is Phase 0 of the rollout of the Ethereum 2.0 improvements this year. Image
2/ ‘The Merge’ will replace PoW and the temporary split solution with the more energy-efficient PoS consensus layer, the Beacon Chain. Transaction blocks will no longer be confirmed by solving computationally intensive puzzles. Image

I read this G20 policy brief which was released Sept 2021

A lot of positive talk about harnessing the benefits of #Blockchain/#DLT

Compares USA FinCEN VS China CBDC

G20 Implementing policies that leverage DLT⏬

My theory with examples of how it can relate to
$QNT $XRP $XLM
First of all, shout out to the writers as this was well written on global DLT @KingsCollegeLon

If you are into global law, regulated DLT, and G20 topics, this is a technical one to review as it has lots of good thoughts.

g20-insights.org/policy_briefs/…

#DLT #Blockchain #crypto #G20
Proposal:

The G20 is uniquely placed to implement policies that leverage the benefits of cryptocurrencies, in particular, DLT for faster and more efficient transactions process.

There's a lot of questions about #cassie, what is the significance, why is it cool, what does it demonstrate, how is it #web3. Even moreso since the #radflix demo dropped & the exposure it got on various socials etc so here is a thread...
Hopefully yall know by now that it is primarily a research network. It started as a collection of radical ideas around #consensus, #sharding, #blockchain and #cassie is the embodiment of those ideas to demonstrate viability. But it has now become so much more...
It is technology that can do things that were said to be impossible. Technology that can do things other L1 tech hasn't even dreamt of trying to do. It is a technology which is being used to show proof of potential on all the *hardest* things first...

#Layer2 Scaling is a concept that is used in the #Ethereum communities with some believing it represents $ETH future.

What does this truly imply? 🤌🏼

How does it operate and why do we need it? 🧐

Today we will deep dive into non-custodial solutions ⬇️
1/ Over the past years, #Ethereum popularity has resulted in a massive rise in transactions and, therefore, #network traffic.

With several users competing for faster #transaction processing, a bidding war occurs, resulting in very expensive gas fees for each user.
Once new scaling solutions arise in the #blockchain space, it is always necessary to consider:

- how much they inherit #Layer1 #security and network characteristics

- if they impose stricter user requirements compared to the underlying #Layer1

1/ @avalancheavax is a highly customizable #Layer0 that enables the development of an infinite number of #blockchains on top.

It can support the adoption of #EVM for any custom VM that implements the innovative #AVAX consensus. Image
2/ The #AVAX #protocol has the only #consensus capable of #scaling the active validator list while maintaining high transaction performance, sub-second finality, and unmatched #decentralization.

It is composed of four mechanisms: Slush, Snowflake ❄️, Snowball, and Avalanche
3/ #Avalanche #Consensus uses “repeated random subsampling” to vote: when a validator #node receives a transaction, it randomly queries other validators until the network achieves consensus.

X-Chain, C-Chain, and Platform Chain are 3 #blockchains making the Primary Network Image

1/ The journey of @iota [MONSTER THREAD] - From the top 5 token to the top 50 token and why it will at least get back into the top 5.
2/ #IOTA was founded in 2015 with the aim and vision of developing a #DLT protocol in which people and machines, can communicate via data & value tx permissionless, feeless, efficient and with the least technical requirements -
With a high level of security, decentralization…
3/ …and Scalability➡️blockchain trilemma.
They also wanted to develop their own #smartcontracts, #oracles, #identity solutions, etc.

At that time they already attracted the attention of the then much smaller #crypto community.

The findings show an absence of a systematic and coordinated plot to take over these schools and an absence of any concerted and deliberate plot to promote radicalisation and violent extremism of Muslim children in these schools or elsewhere

#TrojanHorse

tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…
language used to talk about the issues of “radicalisation” & “extremism” is itself the subject of considerable debate (Kundnani 2012; Lynch 2013). There is also a difficulty in understanding fully these issues cos there is a lack of an objective or universally accepted definition
As soon as the media took hold of the allegations, there was huge publicity about the promotion of extremism, radicalisation & terrorism.
At the time, the press also expressed many irrational anxieties about these Muslim majority schools (Arthur 2015). Even though, from the

One last thread on the origins of #SARSCoV2 before the upcoming publication of the US intelligence report. First of all, there are two things that might be even more important than the origin itself: research ethics and scientific debate. 1/
Since the beginning, some scientists working in Chinese institutions haven't been fully transparent. The history of #RaTG13 and the issues with its sequencing data, the miners pneumonia, the missing database, the pangolin CoV data. Hiding info, playing with words. Bad science. 2/
The second thing that I didn't like was the suppression of an open dialogue between scientists, which lasted for several months. Now it's easier for scientists to freely talk about the different scenarios, but do you remember how difficult it was one year ago? 3/

1. Hello all! @FantomFDN made a presentation on UN, for ITU (International Telecommunication Union), and this is just a guess but it was also probably about smart cities.

This is going to be a thread about how this can work in real life for traffic! Let's start!

$ftm Image
2. People living in big cities know that traffic is a huge problem. When there is an intersection, we put traffic signs/lights in order to avoid collusions.

In a 4-leg intersection, there are 32 conflict points. Image
3. The more conflict points there are, the more waiting time in signalized intersection.

But don't forget that traffic lights are just a communication language for the drivers, and the language has only 3 sentences.

@gregory_raymond @altbator @nano @CryptoMatrix2 @PowerHasheur @SlashCoins Merci. Quand on découvre $NANO, on comprend que c'est trop beau pour être vrai. Et puis, il y a eu Bitgrail...Si ça ressemble à un shitcoin, ce doit être un shitcoin. Voyons cela, en commençant par ce qui fâche 👇
@gregory_raymond @altbator @nano @CryptoMatrix2 @PowerHasheur @SlashCoins 1/ Comme le BTC avec MtGox comme les plus anciens le savent, en février 2018, NANO a vu nombre de ses détenteurs être victimes du manque d'éthique et de diligence, si ce n'est d'un vol pur et simple, du propriétaire de la plateforme d'échange BitGrail.

@gregory_raymond @altbator @nano @CryptoMatrix2 @PowerHasheur @SlashCoins 2/ Contrairement à ETH (Block 1920000) ou BTC (Block 74638), le registre NANO n'a jamais fait l'objet ni d'un piratage onchain ni d'un rollback de la chaîne. Les développeurs ont également refusé de céder à Francesco Firano, qui menaçait de les accuser en l'absence de fork.

Should #smartcontract code execution always be dispostive? Can code execution actually bind participants if litigation is always available? Does extrinsic goverance of #blockchains that may alter #consensus governance weaken, or strengthen a protocol? Who should care? /1
Short answer- everyone. #Developers #investors & #lawyers all need to understand #blockchain & #smartcontract governance to understand what it means to build on top of others' tech. Can you patent new art built on a blockchain? Will your software work if the underlying chain /2
upgrades its code? What if the underlying blockchain forks? How can a #smartcontract advocate for or against software changes to underlying #blockchain system functionality? Is it worth investing in a project built on a frequently shifting foundation.... /3

Here's Comm'r @HesterPeirce's Safe Harbor for Fundraising by #Token Sale proposal 1/x: ImageImageImageImage
@HesterPeirce Let's dive in. The first thing that struck me was the tone/mission statement implied. This looks like "how do we make workable token sales that allow networks to develop" not "how do we apply the securities laws to issuers of instruments" Is this a policy shift? ImageImageImage
@HesterPeirce or is this a new concept- that #crypto networks that require token distribution to boostrap into some non -investment-focused purpose needs to "get through" being a security to develop into a product/system that has an ultimate non investment purpose?

Interesting read about #EmmanuelMacron's vision for Europe and concept of European power, by @RymMomtaz via @POLITICOEurope.
A few comments in this thread👇 #IamEuropean 🇪🇺
politico.eu/article/emmanu…
"The idea was to create a strategy of influence, which means we can [...] write papers with other countries." Then why don't you? Why the total opposition to #Spitzenkandidat and not reform it? Why the solo position on #NorthMacedonia? Or the solo tribune before #EUelections?
"[Macron] established the @RenewEurope group in the European Parliament; positioned close allies at the helm of the ECB and European Council." But where is #France in the Directorate-Generals? Or as "DirCab"? Where is all the middle management that Germany has groomed patiently?

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

For #GeorgeWashington, Great Britain waged a tariff war against the US, believing US States "never could unite in opposition to it". Until proven otherwise, the US would remain "in a ridiculous point of view in the eyes of the nations of the earth". Sounds familiar? #EUisthenewUS
In 1783, #Hamilton noted that "the road to popularity in each state is to inspire jealousy of the power of Congress, though nothing can be more apparent that [Congress has] no power." Sounds familiar? #EuroBashing #EuropeanParliament #EUisthenewUS
In 1787, Charles Pinckney of #SouthCarolina had concluded that the "depressed situation of the union is undoubtedly owing" to this "absurd" requirement of unanimous consent for amendments. Sounds familiar? #EUreform #TreatyChange #EUisthenewUS

As more smart contract platforms launch, it’s becoming clear that it can be more profitable to compete with #Ethereum than to cooperate. There’s a path forward that can keep our community working together to fulfill the Ethereum vision instead of splintering apart. #consensus /1
This photo is from Nigeria, where people put up signs on their property to make it harder for scammers to sell property they don’t actually own. If you have to write “this property is not for sale,” you’re missing some key institutions that could make that obvious instead. /2
Property rights built the Ethereum ecosystem. People bought into the crowdsale in exchange for property: buyers received ether on this new ledger. Since then, many ether holders have built on top of the network to make Ethereum more useful. /3
