Advertising, past and present advertising

Advertising, past and present advertising

It is likely that the first advertisement appeared around the time the first product or service was sold.

Advertising existed in ancient Rome and ancient Greece – though it was "oral" is on the streets and squares of various information and ads shouted the heralds. By the way, the word "advertising" comes from reclamo (lat.)- what does "shout"mean.

According to some sources, advertising appeared in the first Millennium BC. In the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis was discovered the first "advertising" about a certain interpreter of dreams named Reno. His ad was stamped on a large stone and, presumably, worked well.

Advertisements covered the walls of destroyed Pompeii. They were written on papyri, walls of houses and painted on signs.

A new era in the history of advertising began with the invention of the printing press in 1450. Then there were the first posters and flyers.

Advertising developed along with civilization. In the early nineteenth century ad, the leaves were pasted on the round announcement posts. Then the ads were printed magazines and Newspapers – by the way, Peter the Great in 1703 became the "founder of advertising" in Russia, creating the first newspaper - "Vedomosti". At first, in the "Gazette" was advertised books.

With the advent of radio in people's lives, and then-television, advertising has stepped far forward, and even later it captured the space of the Internet.

Today, advertising still lives on round billboards, on billboards at bus stops, on the transport itself, on the walls of our houses and in the form of glowing boards over the city squares. It also occupies a large part in Newspapers and magazines. However, today such advertising is less effective – in the age of the Internet we read Newspapers less and less. But we still listen to the radio and continue to watch TV. Programs, talk shows and movies are constantly interrupted by various announcements – from the announcement of the following television programs to advertising dandruff shampoo, pads and washing powder. Advertising takes more and more air time. But we got used to it: once in our home with blue screens, is firmly established with us.

Advertising is also actively sent by regular mail-every day in the mailboxes we find flyers with offers of certain services.

Perhaps the most active advertising today is on the Internet. It is rare to find a resource that would not fit advertising links to other sites. At the same time, the ads themselves are of the most diverse nature.

Thus, we can distinguish the main types of modern advertising: television and radio – blocks of information clips, interrupting the transmission. Printed advertising - in Newspapers, magazines and leaflets. Outdoor advertising includes billboards, posters, light boards and various signage.

Answering the question - what exactly is advertised to us every day, we can highlight the following.

The first-advertising a certain company, promotion and information about the goods from customers advertising. So we learn about new brands of cars, mobile phones, air conditioners, all kinds of electrical goods, cleaning products, body hygiene - and other things, without which it is impossible to imagine modern life.

The second is trade advertising, which calls potential buyers to specific shops and outlets – the information usually includes the address – and sometimes the directions to the store - and the various discounts and promotions offered there. Often, the timing of the shares, encouraging buyers to hurry and make purchases there.

Another type is political advertising, usually used in election campaigns and forming a certain image for a politician. This is one of the most expensive types of advertising.

There is also social advertising-it is intended for a special audience and is addressed directly to teenagers, or to pensioners, students or other social group. The populations are offered a variety of services with defined discounts for them. For example, here can be advertised subscriptions to the pool or gym for half the price for students. Or some travel Agency carries out an action on sale of permits at reduced prices for pensioners. There are a lot of options that are not suitable for the most affluent segments of the population.

There are also business advertising aimed at people who are professionally engaged in business. In addition, there are a huge number of private ads.

All types of advertising, one way or another, work effectively, encouraging potential customers to make purchases, go to certain stores. Today, we do not need to specifically look for certain goods – thanks to advertising, goods and services themselves find us.

Advertising has long been an integral part of our lives – it is always and everywhere with us. Bright, catchy, elegant, beautiful - it has long been turned into art and it is impossible to imagine today's life without it.

The gray mass of the ICO projects: PR-a course and no revolution

The gray mass of the ICO projects

The gray mass of the ICO projects: PR-a course and no revolution

If you are not the first time you hear about ICO-projects, then you will understand exactly what will be discussed in the future. How often are ICO projects that are ready to change our usual world, arranging a technological revolution? Unfortunately, this does not happen often, and not because of the presence of serious technological developments in ICO projects, but rather because of simple speculation over the value of the startup.

ICO projects

Without a doubt, blockchain is a useful development that is already creating a fundamentally new society of the future. Technology is needed right now, and it proves its value. It is universal and applicable in many areas. But it is important to know that the blockchain itself is not a "cure for all diseases".

With the development of the market and the emergence of new ICO projects, competition is growing, and every startup wants to be what is called "the next big thing"abroad. Nevertheless, in a ridiculously large number of cases, developers do not chase an achievable and tangible goal, but pursue a spirit of innovation, trying to apply the blockchain system to everything, even in cases where it looks frankly ridiculous. We will not jump to conclusions, but if such ideas can help our society in the future, then either the market is too niche for them, or the "revolutionary" system of brave businessmen is inapplicable to the current realities and is doomed to failure.

There are a huge number of such ICO projects. Therefore, this article describes only some of the" revolutionaries " of the blockchain industry, whose mission is real, but not practical. Each of them in its own way pushes the idea of changing the world for the better in a variety of areas, but not all of these areas need to be applied to them blockchain technologies. In order to avoid conflicts with the creators of the presented ICO projects, their names were hidden. Perhaps some projects readers will still be able to learn.

Opens our ICO-project list, positioning itself as a global platform for entertainment, combining streaming concerts and performances, social network and its own cryptocurrency. Although the plans of this ICO project stretch very far, now its main goal is the industry of Korean pop idols. Users will be able to book tickets for their concerts, pay for their appearance in various talk shows and advertisements, buy merch and participate in crowdfunding campaigns of artists. Popular words like "full transparency"are included. The only question in this case-why to the already huge industry to fasten the fifth wheel in the form of blockchain? Perhaps the technology needs to produce a "revolution" in the industry of Korean pop idols associated with their forgery. As a result, the capitalization of the project reached $90,000,000.

Continuing the theme of social networks with" unnecessary " technologies of decentralization, we come to the next secret candidate. This ICO project is a service, the cornerstone of which is selfies. The more photos the user publishes, the more cryptocurrency he gets. The earned money can then be spent on various offers from brands cooperating with the company. All anything, but it is doubtful that social networks with one root feature can compete in the market where in this sphere there are already giants, especially even those giants are not insured against possible collapse as we could already see on the example of Vine and Musically. The idea of gamification and promotion in such networks is certainly interesting, but it can be achieved without the blockchain factor, and the oversaturation of the market with such applications does not guarantee success. It should also be noted that the introduction of the blockchain itself is quite expensive: both technologically and financially. In the first case, the problem of scalability and system protection immediately appears. In the second case, there is a difficulty in increasing the payback time of investments.

From social networks on the blockchain, we are moving to another, similar "revolutionary" ICO-project. In it, developers aim to revolutionize the blockchain, simplifying it specifically for the generation of Millennials with their own crypto-wallet and social network, which helps to learn about things happening in the world of crypto-trading. Of course, this seems like a good goal, but only until you look up the dictionary meaning of the word "Millennial". Most of the representatives of this generation are more than twenty or even thirty years old. Almost all of these people have long decided what they need from life, and if they are passionate about the world of blockchain, they already understand many aspects of it and they do not need to find a special service for their generation (which in itself is strange). What is the point of making a special "revolutionary" blockchain for Millennials — remains a big question. There is no doubt only one thing — this project looks like Steve Buscemi in the outfit of a cool student from "Studio 30".

The next ICO project is exclusively for women. Undoubtedly, from the point of view of marketing, it attracts attention with loud statements like "raising awareness about cryptocurrencies among women", but such PR tricks can hardly really increase women's interest in this cryptocurrency. And goals like "become the number one altcoin for women in business" every day seem to cryptocurrency more and more ghostly. The moral here is that it is necessary to concentrate on real women's problems, and not try to fight the mythical "inequality" in the crypto-sphere.

And since we have smoothly switched to attempts to insert the blockchain into real world problems, we will consider a new ICO project that calls for the fight against global warming. Its essence lies in the use of native cryptocurrency for certain contributions in support of different species of animals that are threatened with extinction as a result of climate change. There is only one catch: why do you need your own cryptocurrency? The fight against global warming is a very difficult process that requires cooperation at all levels and in all countries, and it can not be solved by creating a special cryptocurrency. It is strange to believe that this particular cryptocurrency will be in demand by conservationists when there are such kings of crypto-transactions as Ethereum or Dash. That is why the ideas of this "revolutionary", although they carry an important meaning, are unlikely to be truly implemented.

We are moving from climate change to the fight against the shadow economy in prisons. One project offers a revolutionary method of dealing with it-partial legalization and use of blockchain. Of course, it will be very good if prisoners can spend more and legally establish a transparent system of exchange of things and goods in prisons. However, it does not take into account the factor that speculation in prisons can not be completely stopped: it is doubtful that the ICO project provides for the sale of drugs, files and sharpening in its system, but such things will always be in demand in prisons, and partial legalization of trade will not help the situation. Surprisingly, the project currently has a capitalization of about $ 1,250,000.

All considered projects confirm the words said at the beginning of the article that everyone wants to become the "big thing". The immaturity of the blockchain market means that it will try to apply to a variety of areas, even if they do not get along in principle or will not get along in the current realities. It is a disease of every nascent industry. Suffice it to recall the market "Dot Com", when the online store was screwed to any kind of goods without a clear demand for its purchase via the Internet. The Internet has become a part of us in just 20 years.

At the same time, there are really promising projects, and such diversity is by no means a bad thing — every ten shitcoins make one really good project Shine with new colors.

The main thing is to follow the development of the ICO project product, not its marketing, and then it will be easier to find your "unicorn" of the crypto-industry.

Сообщение от СаТоШи НаКаМоТо V никто не заметил - Зомбиапокалипсис наступил?

Банки правят миром, но кто правит банками? (Я правлю ИмИ)

В наши дни, это уже истина, что гегемония США основана на Федеральной резервной системы (ФЕДЕРАЛЬНАЯ РЕЗЕРВНАЯ СИСТЕМА) печатный станок. Также более или менее очевидно, что акционерами ФРС являются крупные международные банки. К ним относятся не только банки США (Уолл-Стрит), но и банки Европы (Лондон Городской банк и несколько в Континентальной Европе).

Во время глобального финансового кризиса 2007-2009 годов ФРС спокойно выдала кредит различным банкам на сумму более 16 триллионов долларов (практически без процентов). Владельцы денег выдали кредит себе, то есть основным акционерам банков Федеральная резервная система. Под сильным давлением от американский конгресс в начале этого десятилетия был проведен частичный аудит ФРС, результаты которого были опубликованы летом 2011 года. Список получателей кредита также является списком основных акционеров ФРС. Они заключаются в следующем (сумма полученного кредита указана в скобках в миллиардах долларов): Ситигруп (2,500); Morgan Staley (2,004); компания Merrill Lynch (1,949); банк Америки (1,344); Barclays PLC (868); Bear Sterns (853); Goldman Sachs (814); Royal банк Шотландии (541); JP Morgan (391); Deutsche Bank (354); Кредит Швейцарский (262); UBS (287); Братья Леманы (183); банк Шотландии (181); и банк BNP Paribas (175). Интересно, что ряд получателей кредита FRS являются не американскими, а иностранными банками: британскими (Barclays PLC, Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of Scotland); Швейцарский (кредитный Швейцарский, UBS); немец Дойч Банк; и французы банк BNP Paribas. Эти банки получили почти 2,5 триллиона долларов из Федеральной резервной системы. Мы не ошиблись бы, предполагая, что это иностранные акционеры ФРС.

Хотя состав основных акционеров ФРС более или менее ясен, то же самое нельзя сказать и об акционерах тех банков, которые в основном владеют печатным станком ФРС. Кто именно акционеры акционеры ФРС?

Для начала, давайте посмотрим на ведущие банки США. Шесть банков в настоящее время являются ядром банковской системы США. "Большая шестерка" включает в себя банк Америки, JP Morgan Chase, банк Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Уэллс Фарго, и Ситигруп. Они занимают первые места в рейтингах банков США по таким показателям, как объем капитала, контролируемые активы, привлеченные депозиты, капитализация и прибыль. Если бы мы оценивали банки по размеру активов, то JP Morgan Chase занял бы первое место ($2,075 млрд в конце 2014 года), в то время как Wells Fargo лидирует по капитализации ($261,7 млрд осенью 2014 года). По этому показателю, кстати, Уэллс Фарго вышел на первое место не только в Америке, но и в мире (хотя по объему активов Банк является лишь четвертым в Америке и даже не входит в первую двадцатку мира).

На официальных сайтах этих банков есть информация о акционерах. Основная часть капитала "большой шестерки" американских банков находится в руках так называемых институциональных акционеров – различных финансовых компаний. К ним относятся банки, что означает наличие перекрестного пакета акций.

На начало 2015 года количество институциональных акционеров каждого банка составляло: Bank of America-1,410; JP Morgan Chase-1,795; банк Morgan Stanley - 826; Goldman Sachs-1,018; Уэллс Фарго - 1,729; и Citigroup-1,247. Каждый из этих банков также имеет достаточно четкую группу крупных инвесторов (акционеров). Это инвесторы (акционеры)с более чем одним процентом капитала каждый, и обычно между 10 и 20 таких акционеров. Поразительно, что в группе крупных инвесторов для каждого банка появляются точно такие же компании и организации. В таблице 1 перечислены основные институциональные инвесторы (акционеры).

Как и институциональные инвесторы, указанные в таблице 1, в список акционеров ведущих банков США также входят следующие организации: Капитальные Мировые Инвесторы, Massachusetts Financial Services, Price (T. Rowe) Associates Inc. , Mitsubishi Ufj Financial Group, Инк., Berkshire Hathaway Inc., Dodge & Cox Inc., Invesco Ltd., Franklin Resources, Inc., The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation и несколько других. Я назвал только те организации, которые являются акционерами по крайней мере двух из шести ведущих американских банков.

Институциональными акционерами, перечисленными в финансовой отчетности ведущих американских банков, являются различные финансовые компании и банки. Отдельные записи ведутся в отношении акционеров, таких как физические лица и паевые инвестиционные фонды. В ряде банков Уолл-Стрит значительная часть акций принадлежит сотрудникам этих банков. Очевидно, что это топ-менеджеры, а не обычные сотрудники (хотя обычные банковские работники могут также иметь символическое количество акций). Что касается взаимных фондов1, то многие из них относятся к сфере влияния точно таких же институциональных акционеров, перечисленных выше.

В качестве примера можно привести список крупнейших акционеров американского Банка Goldman Sachs, которые квалифицируются как паевые инвестиционные фонды (Таблица 2).

Как минимум три из перечисленных в таблице 2 фондов относятся к сфере влияния финансовой корпорации Vanguard Group. Это Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund, Vanguard 500 Index Fund и Vanguard Institutional Index Fund-Institutional Index Fund. Группа "Авангард" владеет 4,9% уставного капитала "Голдман Сакс", но три паевых фонда, входящие в состав этого финансового холдинга, обеспечивают дополнительно 3,59%. Таким образом, фактическое положение группы Vanguard в Goldman Sachs определяется долей в 8,49%, а не 4,9%.

Ряд банков Уолл-Стрит также имеют отдельную категорию акционеров. Это, как правило, руководители банков, как активные, так и пенсионеры. В таблице ниже представлена информация об индивидуальных акционерах Goldman Sachs (Таблица 3).

Источник: finance.yahoo.com

В общей сложности пять физических лиц, перечисленных в таблице 3, владеют более 5,5 млн. акций Goldman Sachs, что составляет примерно 1,3% от общего уставного капитала банка. Это такое же количество акций, как и институциональный акционер, как и Northern Trust. Кто эти люди? Они старшие менеджеры в Goldman Sachs. Ллойд Бланкфейн например, с 31 мая 2006 года является председателем и генеральным директором Goldman Sachs. Джон с Вайнберг был вице-председателем Goldman Sachs примерно в то же время. Он также является членом комитета по управлению и был соруководителем отдела инвестиционного банкинга (он покинул последний пост в декабре 2014 года). Три других индивидуальных акционера также относятся к категории высшего руководства Goldman Sachs, и все они являются текущими сотрудниками банка.


(1) взаимный фонд (МФ) - это портфель акций, приобретенных профессиональными финансистами через инвестиции многих тысяч мелких инвесторов. К началу 21-го века в США действовало несколько тысяч паевых инвестиционных фондов. К 2000 году в рамках паевых инвестиционных фондов было открыто 164,1 млн. счетов, т. е. почти по два счета на семью.

BurstCoin (BURST) - cryptocurrency with explosive prospects!

BurstCoin (BURST) - cryptocurrency with explosive prospects!

BurstCoin (BURST) - cryptocurrency with explosive prospects!

It is clear that anyone reading this article, at least, knows about the existence of bitcoin and Its many followers-forks. If you are a little more immersed in the topic, then no doubt you know that most of these forks hardly deserve your and our attention. Basically, it is a pale copy of the" big brother " Bitcoin, not shining with novelty and originality.

But, fortunately, not everything is so sad and unambiguous. As in the piles of rock there is no-no, and the gold bar will Shine, and in the pile of alternative crypto-currencies from time to time there is a development with which you want to get acquainted closer.

One of these rare finds we want to share with you today. This digital currency, the authors called modestly, but with a certain message – BurstCoin, which can be translated as a flash or explosive coin. But no matter how you translate, and there are certain expectations-it seems something bright and impressive. How true such associations, time will tell, and now let's get acquainted with this "flash" in more detail.

What is the "explosive coin" Burst?

BurstCoin (BURST) - cryptocurrency with explosive prospects!

This is both a cryptographic coin and a payment system, which is based on blockchain technology. Given the rapidity of development of cryptosphere, this coin is not particularly "young". It appeared in the late summer of 2014. The launch was not preceded by any premine or IPO.

The currency itself is a fork of NXT because it is based on the source code of this particular crypt, but it would not be worth talking about if it did not have a fundamental difference from its predecessor. And there is such a difference. In BurstCoin is the first time in the history of cryptoprocta used a new mining algorithm Proof of Capaciti (PoC, or proof of capacity).

The essence of mining on the POC algorithm

This type of mining, as we have already noted, is fundamentally different from the well-known methods of mining the crypt. It is crucial to have free space on your hard drive, and your willingness to use it to "dig" currency. It will depend on the profitability of the work. However, some role play and processing power, and RAM, but only at the stage of preparation.

The first thing to do is to install a wallet. You need to install the current version of the" wallet " Burst, and also note that for its functioning you need Java. At the end of this stage, you will receive the address of your new "purse", which will "drip" money.

Your next step is selection of the pool and check on it, that cost is likely 1 coin Burstain (you throw someone from colleagues in the forum), then you will be entered in the number of recipients. Solo mining is also available, but as mining becomes more difficult, it becomes less profitable.

Then you need to collect the plot (a set of data calculated by the miner and stored subsequently on the computer's memory). Just this stage involves the use of the processor. Well, now you can start working directly. The main advantage is that in addition to the computer you do not need any more "iron", and the disk subsystem is loaded moderately enough, which has a positive effect on the energy efficiency of production.

Then everything is simple and familiar – go with your coins to the exchange and change to dollars or BTC (that's how you like it).

As you can see, there is nothing complicated in mining on the hard drive. To get started you need to go through a few simple seven steps:
  1. Download and install BurstCoin wallet.
  2. Registration of the personal account.
  3. Enter the passphrase (key).
  4. Login to your account.
  5. In the menu at the top left, you will see the number of your wallet, which you need to write down, as well as the cells at the bottom of the window (Write slots).
  6. Wait for the system to finish generating data.
  7. Select blocks and pool, and get started by clicking on "Start".

HDD selection criteria and a few examples of suitable hard drives

BurstCoin (BURST) - cryptocurrency with explosive prospects!

The equipment in cryptocurrency mining takes an important place and you need to be able to choose it correctly. In our case, we are talking about choosing a decent hard drive. The first thing you need to pay attention to is the ratio of cost and memory, in other words, you need to estimate how much you will cost 1Gb of memory. It is clear that the cheaper it is, the more profitable it will be for you.

The second criterion is the reliability of the device. However, this indicator is quite relative, because the HDDs produced today differ little in quality. Below we give a few suitable in our opinion options.

There are quite a few affordable and quality options brand Toshiba – DT01ACA Series 2TB, 3TB DT01ACA Series 3TB HDWD130UZSVA and P300. The first model is ideal for mining crypts, the cost of one Giga of memory is about 2.4 cents, but for a truly productive farm will need a lot of hard drives.

The second model proved to be good, the cost of 1Gb is only 2.3 cents. And the third option is also different efficiency (2.4 cents per 1Gb) and good performance.

I would also like to note the model Archive HDD ST8000AS0002 8TB from Seagate. It is noteworthy that the unit of memory is worth about 2.35 cents, while the usual cost of such memory in the hard drives on 4-6 TV is not below 2.7 cents, which makes them economically not very profitable. And another option with the cost of 1GB of memory only 2.3 cents – Seagate BarraCuda ST4000DM005 4TB.

BurstCoin cloud mining

The fact that there is such a method of mining cryptocurrency know, perhaps, all.

The fact that there is such a method of mining cryptocurrency know, perhaps, all. But, basically, they know about the services that provide cloud mining services for Bitcoin and some other well-known digital coins. We want to introduce you to a resource that allows you to mine unfamiliar and not quite ordinary coin Burst.

Called service Burstmine and its services it offers is not very expensive. As you know, since this crypt is extracted on hard disks, Burstmine offers users free space on disks, and the power is not measured in Tera, Giga and Megahashes per second, but in Tera and Gigabytes.

Any method of mining the crypt has its attractive sides and disadvantages. The algorithm we consider is no exception.

The advantages clearly include the fact that you can do without cumbersome and expensive equipment, no need to spend time and money to find suitable graphics cards (built-in enough). The system is simple enough to install and configure, and placed all in the ATX-case of your computer. Moreover, you will not need any powerful power supplies, because a dozen HDD consume only about a hundred watts. In addition, they are not as hot as video cards (the heat generated by one gaming graphics card is comparable to the heat produced by a dozen hard drives). As a result, you will not need noisy and powerful cooling systems. And, finally, with this method of production of crypto-coins, it is not necessary to be a cool professional and thoroughly understand all this computer "hardware".

With the advantages it seems to be finished, it's time to talk about the shortcomings. They are not so much, but to know them will be quite useful.

The first and perhaps the most significant drawback is a fairly limited list of cryptocurrencies that can be mined in this way. The second thing to be warned about is the complexity of implementing a used hard drive. If you suddenly decide to update it, it is not the fact that you can return at least part of your costs (for example, used video card is much easier to sell). I also write about this moment, as the likely failure of the HDD after not very long, but in our opinion, is pure the reassurance of a series of "what if". Of course, anything can happen, but we would not classify such a probability as obvious shortcomings.

BurstCoin is a digital currency that turns "smart" contracts into reality

Attention to digital currencies has recently been focused to a large extent due to the possibility of using blockchain technology in the development of smart contracts. The number of startups launching "smart" contracts (like Ethereum) is multiplying every day. By tracking such large projects, the community almost missed a seemingly inconspicuous startup that was actually able to get ahead of everyone else in this matter.

Of course, we mean the Burst project, which launched a coin that allows you to produce smart contracts directly from your wallet. These very contracts can radically change many aspects of our lives. Up to the point that over time we will be able in many cases to do without lawyers or bankers, as intellectual contracts are able to fulfill the terms of contracts automatically.

The plans of the developers BurstCoin to increase the number of supported smart contracts, low, to 10 and to support online games, Autonomous corporations, etc. Such developments will make possible the implementation of instant transactions when conducting crowdfunding, auctions, lotteries and many other occasions when the need arises.

Conclusion burstcoin

The BurstCoin project is attractive, first of all, by the availability and simplicity of creating and running a mining farm. But this is for those users who are focused on mining. And in General, it is much wider than the usual concept of cryptocurrencies, it has prospects in the field of intellectual contracts, for which the future. So we advise you to look at this site for those of you who want to use blockchain technology in your business, whether it's business, creativity or some other field of activity. Good luck!

CFTC approves of digital assets

He noted the growth of the digital asset industry due to the interest of traders and investors.

"We still have a long way to go, as some spot exchanges have a lot of problems, such as lack of transparency, a big conflict of interest and lack of system guarantees. That's a concern. However, they, like many other phenomena, need time to Mature. With the emergence of more institutional investors in the industry, I think we will see this maturation," the official said.

Giancarlo also said that the CFTC is closely monitoring the development of the crypto sphere.

"There are a lot of scams and deceivers in this market, and when we find them, we make them responsible for their actions in accordance with the law. Our powers were recently confirmed by two Federal courts, " the head of the Commission said.

He noted that the authorities would like to see more blockchain innovations. And in the context of industry regulation, the CFTC takes a "do no harm"approach.

"Under our supervision, the first two products of bitcoin futures appeared, and they actually depleted the cryptocurrency bubble formed at the end of 2017. In addition, we see how bitcoin becomes more stable than it was a year ago," Giancarlo explained.

However, he is confident that digital currencies will not replace Fiat in the future.

"I think cryptocurrencies will remain. They have future. But I'm not sure they'll ever be able to compete with a dollar or other hard currency. However, there is a whole part of the world that really wants to have functioning cryptocurrencies," the head of the CFTC added.

Manipulation on major exchanges: Coinbase even overstates the volume of trading

Manipulation on major exchanges: Coinbase even overstates the volume of trading

Manipulation on major exchanges: Coinbase even overstates the volume of trading

The report of the Prosecutor of the state of new York (OAG) "Initiative to ensure the cleanliness of virtual markets" says that several platforms have resorted to artificial increase in trading volume, including Coinbase. On these exchanges there were discrepancies with the actual volumes.

This is a phenomenon of own trading, when the company for its own benefit conducts transactions instead of trading on behalf of its customers for a Commission. Own trading not only provides income, but also serves as a factor in increasing liquidity, For example, the chance to execute a client's order is higher if real buyers or sellers do not place offers. The OAG document says: "Such activities [.....] requires increased customer protection and transparency of transactions to comply with the law."

The problem is that the user can suddenly lose liquidity and generally have a false idea about trading volumes.

The entire text of the investigation is presented in an official document.


The new York city Prosecutor's office has checked 13 exchanges, including such large sites as Coinbase and Bitfinex. As a result, five exchanges are seen in unfair trades on their platforms. The volume of trading activity does not correspond to the actual indicators. At Coinbase it is 20% of the wound orders at the expense of transactions on own platform. Some exchanges, such as Kraken, did not participate in the investigation and publicly announced it. OAG States that half of the audited exchanges admitted in an artificial increase in trading volume.

The investigation also considers other factors: service availability via VPN, Fiat pairs, verification.

Another message from Satoshi Nakamoto

What's in Satoshi Nakamoto's new message?

What's in Satoshi Nakamoto's new message?

Members of the crypto community are already aware that in the hash of the first block, the father of bitcoin placed the following lines "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks". Now it turned out that a similar text is duplicated. It contains his version of hex, placed in the code comments.

Each BTC block contains its own coinbase transaction. It is added by cryptocurrency miners when they start to mine the block. It is intended to receive a reward for the extracted block.

The developer has included a second version of the famous headline from the Times in the coinbase transaction in the Genesis block, but it must be read from right to left.

"Sknab rof tuoliab dnoces fo knirb no rollecnahC 9002 / naJ / 30 semiT ehT", — said in the Easter egg.

This summer, the site Satoshi Nakamoto there was a record from an anonymous author. He claimed that he was involved in the creation of bitcoin, and promised to publish a book in the near future, which will reveal all the secrets associated with the emergence of BTC.

Unknown presented " an excerpt of the literary work, consisting of two parts." According to him, the book will be a "short story, which will raise the most common questions and answers."

"I want to give publicity to some facts and names," said anonymous.

Curiously, the author offered readers a cryptogram, deciphering, which will be possible to find out the name of the future work. And, it seems, the work will be called "Honne and tata(e)mae", which in Japanese means "the contrast between the true intentions of man and the external manifestations of these intentions."

The book will feature well-known cryptographers and cipher banks. The author will share information about the fact that the Genesis block of bitcoin, in fact, is not the first block in the blockchain.

We are already afraid for humanity: the robot from Boston Dynamics and its dashing parkour

We are already afraid for humanity: the robot from Boston Dynamics and its dashing parkour

Remember we once talked about robots from Boston Dynamics? Even then they frightened us with their anthropomorphism and amazing technical characteristics. But now they really began to exceed the capabilities of man, and it is both admirable and alarming.

Yesterday, the guys from Boston Dynamics published a new video in which one of their favorite robots Atlas is engaged in parkour and does it with ease athlete.

Apparently, the rise of the machines is very close!

Apparently, the rise of the machines is very close!

And it would not be an exaggeration if we say that for some few years Atlas has turned from a subhuman into a superhuman. For example, back in the recent 2016, it was interesting to observe how the robot could walk on its own on the hills, without losing balance. However, today he is doing a back flip. And after all not each of us can brag of that is able to do a somersault in General.

We are already afraid for humanity: the robot from Boston Dynamics and its dashing parkour

Naturally, robots like Atlas are far from perfect and can, for example, fall off the stage, as happened a year ago at one of the public presentations of his abilities. But to fall from the stage and the people, so it is not necessary so strongly to be surprised.

We, in turn, will continue to monitor the development of robots and hope that when the machines reach their peak, they will not enslave us.

Vitalik Buterin predicted the next financial crisis

Vitalik Buterin predicted the next financial crisis

Vitalik Buterin predicted the next financial crisis

The Creator of the Ethereum cryptocurrency Vitalik Buterin wrote a message on October 10 on Twitter, in which he tried to predict when the next financial crisis will be:

It is evident that the report says that the next financial crisis will be in the period 2018-2021.

I want to clarify that this report was published two days ago, at a time when there were significant intraday declines in stock markets around the world. Many thought at first, including me, that Vitalik Buterin really expects a crisis. But then I realized it was a joke. More precisely, this is a response from Vitalik Buterin to the negative statements of the famous American economist Nouriel Roubini in his address and criticism of cryptocurrencies.

I want to remind you that yesterday there was a speech by Nouriel Rubini (American economist, who became very famous 10 years ago due to the fact that he allegedly predicted the global financial crisis) before the us Congress on the topic of "Cryptocurrency". The American economist said that cryptocurrencies are a colossal deception and one of the biggest "bubbles" of all time. He said that people are mistaken in the fact that cryptocurrencies are decentralized, explaining that behind them are oligopolistic structures. For example, he explained That the Ethereum cryptocurrency is completely dependent on Vitalik Buterin, calling him a "lifetime dictator". It is important to note that Nuriel Rubini has many times called Vitalik Buterin "dictator".

Therefore, in my opinion, the message of Vitalik Buterin is simply a response to criticism of him by Nouriel Roubini. In other words, the Creator of Ethereum just wants to show that, purely theoretically, everyone has a 25% chance to predict the next crisis, simply stating that in the next 4 years "a crisis will happen", and thus become popular. Most likely, this is exactly what happened with Nouriel Roubini.

A new breakthrough in cryptocurrency scalability

A new breakthrough in cryptocurrency scalability

A new breakthrough in cryptocurrency scalability

The research team has introduced a new scalability solution that will allow 17,000 transactions per second on the Ethereum network.

17 000 transactions per second Ethereum promises a breakthrough in cryptocurrency scalability

Researchers Ethereum Harry R., Yeongdong Fu, Philip Castonguay, Alex and the fantastic Barry Waythat recently introduced a sidechained. This is a new scalability solution outside the Ethereum blockchain based on Snark.

The method will allow you to transfer tokens and ether outside the network at a transaction speed of up to 17,000. This speed can sravnits indicator Visa. If developers manage to implement the solution, it will allow blockchain and cryptocurrencies to move to a new level.

In late September, the founder of Ethereum offered to scale Ethereum with the help of ZK-SNARKs technology, which was originally used in the ZCash network.

"We can significantly scale transactions for the transfer of assets in the Ethereum blockchain without second-level solutions (channels, Plasma), using zk — SNARK for mass transaction validation," Vitalik Buterin wrote.

Also yesterday, the network reported that the co-founder of Blockstream mark Friedenbach came up with a method of scaling the first cryptocurrency, which does not require a hard fork. The specialist describes the scaling method, according to which the sharding technology can increase the volume of transactions by 3584 times compared to the current level and improve censorship resistance.

Do we need the blockchain in medicine?

Do we need the blockchain in medicine?

Do we need the blockchain in medicine?

Blockchain technology has significantly changed the financial market. Decentralization, immutability, transparency look attractive for other spheres of life. To date, several projects have introduced blockchain into the health care system. We will tell you how blockchain is used in medicine and what potential it gives to companies that care about our health.

Blockchain capabilities in medicine

The main characteristics of the blockchain are applicable and useful in the field of medicine. It is only necessary to assess the potential and gradually implement projects on the blockchain in this area. We present several significant changes that are possible in medicine with the introduction of blockchain technology.


Facilitate control over the supply of narcotic drugs and counterfeit drugs.

Falsification of medicines cannot be avoided even with full state control over the pharmaceutical industry. At the moment, the amount of falsification is from 15 to 80%. The certificate of authenticity of the means can be easily forged.

Blockchain will track the path of the drug from the manufacturer to the retail pharmacy. This will make the pharmaceutical industry fully controlled. In theory, any drug will become controlled.

You can enter additional functions — monitoring the availability of medicines in clinics, and the opportunity to see the transfer of drugs, their number etc on the packing need the barcode, which is a special application will make the data on the blockchain.


The database in the chain cannot be changed or deleted. This makes it impossible to falsify medical history. The patient controls access to their data. It can provide them through the app to a specific doctor or medical organization.

Currently, when going abroad, the patient is a secret for doctors. For example, if the patient needs surgery, you need to know the reaction of his body to anesthesia. This can only be found out from the patient himself. But the patient can forget, be unconscious, incapacitated or a child. There is a problem that is easily solved thanks to the application based on the blockchain, where all the information is stored.

You can also get reliable data about the patient and his medical history. This is required by various fields of activity, where necessary information about the physical and psychological health of the person.


The introduction of a special API in medicine will facilitate and secure the transfer of patient data between organizations. This is especially true in the field of insurance. The information can be used by insurance companies with the consent of the client. Thus, any of us will be able to provide access to medical records in exchange for the insurance service. Currently, all data is reported by the client. The insurance company either believes in the word, or should independently recheck the information.

Real blockchain projects in medicine


The Dutch Foundation for Dentacoin Foundation released the currency to the world dental industry. The idea of the project is that patients pay for services and goods with tokens. The Foundation relies on the fact that dental services will become more accessible. This will increase the percentage of preventive examinations, reduce the number of dental problems in need of treatment. In the near future it is planned to create a single database based on the blockchain.


Decentralized health information ecosystem for patients, medical and research organizations on the blockchain. The project allows:

To collect information about treatment to the doctor, getting treatments and medications.
To integrate information about the client in different organizations. As a result, the patient receives quality medical care, rapid diagnosis, personalized approach.
Have access to the database in real time.
Decentralized currency based on Ethereum blockchain. It is aimed at using life insurance services within the platform. The insurer freezes funds to pay for services in smart contracts. The client applies to the platform to receive these payments. The project is still under development.


A healthy lifestyle ecosystem that collects information about a person's health and lifestyle and records it on the blockchain. The essence is that the client always has at hand all the information about himself and can use it in medical institutions, health sports complexes. The system of promotion and remuneration, monitors the results of the client and monetizirovat his healthy lifestyle. LYM coins are used for the purchase of sports and medical goods, health care services.

Timicoin (TMC)

Open source cryptocurrency. Used as payment on TimiHR. It is a decentralized platform for sharing information about the client's health. Currency is a reward for those customers who provide information about themselves to medical organizations. It is possible to buy goods and receive medical services.

In contrast to the financial sector, health care is more cautious about new technologies, as it is one of the most controlled and conservative industries. The introduction of new technologies is always associated with the infusion of a large amount of additional funds.  To exchange data about patients, even within a country needs to develop a network and learn new skills staff. These factors slow down the involvement of blockchain technology in medicine.  However, even the limited implementation of the distributed register has potential in the future.

10 facts about the blockchain, you don't want to believe

10 facts about the blockchain, you don't want to believe

10 facts about the blockchain, you don't want to believe

Despite the fact that everyone is talking about the blockchain, many have the wrong idea about the possibilities and purpose of this technology.

Even in 2017, the excitement around the blockchain was just huge. People believed that this technology would affect all sectors of the economy, change the face of our planet and simultaneously bring millions to investors in ICO.

All this hype has led some to believe in completely crazy ideas about the blockchain and its capabilities. Many people have the wrong idea about the potential of this technology — they consider it something that it is not really.

Blockchain is just a database with some distinctive features. It allows multiple users to record and share information in real time, with the parties not having to trust each other as the correctness of the records is controlled by the participants receiving the reward in the form of tokens/coins. These features are very specific and really useful only in certain circumstances.

For example, they are perfect for cryptocurrencies like bitcoin — its blockchain allows you to send money to anyone in the world with minimal costs without the need for a Bank or other intermediary.

However, block chains are not really suitable for storing all types of data and certainly should not be used to solve far-fetched problems.

Today we will talk about 10 common myths about the blockchain and its applications (like bitcoin) both from haters and from ardent enthusiasts.

1. Bitcoin isn't the biggest Scam in history, it's not rat poison, and it's not dead

In 2017, against the cryptocurrency were some well-known financiers, including Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and the head of JP Morgan Jamie Dimon.

Yes, blockchain and bitcoin based on it — like any new revolutionary technology-have their drawbacks. The proof-of-work consensus mechanism consumes huge amounts of electricity; cryptocurrency is actively used for speculation and illegal activities.

But to say that this technology is going to fail is like saying in 1995 that the Internet will not work because it is clumsy and unorganized.

Bitcoin lives and lives for 10 years, although he has repeatedly predicted the death. At first glance it may not seem credible, but says Navale Ravikant:

"Bitcoin is a tool for liberating humanity from oligarchs and tyrants, served as a scheme of rapid enrichment."

Concentrating on the shortcomings of this technology and calling bitcoin a Scam, we completely forget about its advantages and potential.

2. Blockchain will not increase the value of your company's shares

Kodak, Long Island Iced Tea and on-line Plc are excellent examples of using the hype around the blockchain to raise the value of shares. At the same time, none of the companies has anything to do with technology.

3. The blockchain is not a pyramid scheme

Although the financial pyramid on the basis of this technology meet. For example, PonziCoin is a typical Ponzi scheme (and don't mention Bitconnect).

4. Cryptocurrencies are not just for scammers

There have been many cases where investors and companies have suffered from break-ins and scams. This is a big problem for the industry, but not a sentence. It is anonymity-one of the main advantages of the blockchain — that allows hackers and scammers to go unpunished. But this is an unpleasant side effect of the technology, not its task.

Terrorist groups like ISIS (banned in Russia) are looking for recruits on social networks, but this does not mean that we should abandon Facebook and Twitter.

Pablo Escobar was so rich that he burned American dollars to warm his daughter. The entire drug industry is held solely on cash. Does that make them bad?

5. Blockchain is not intended for fundraising

The fact that some unknown company attracted millions of dollars during the ICO does not mean that its behavior should be copied.

The purpose of the ICO is not only to raise funds, but also to distribute tokens between potential users of the project. Ultimately, they must perform a function. If the startup has nothing to do with the blockchain, then the need for tokens disappears. They should not be used for banal fundraising.

6. Blockchain will not change your business

If the company does not have a real need for the advantages that the blockchain can offer, it is better not to communicate with it and store data in the old way.

7. Blockchain will not change absolutely all industries

Heard the phrase"it's like Uber for (a certain industry)"? It's funny, but it even penetrated the blockchain ecosystem. Some companies are literally trying to create Uber on the blockchain.

A small problem with this venture is that not every industry needs blockchain. Let's say you don't like Uber's attitude towards employees, and instead of switching to Lyft, you're inventing a blockchain solution?

"Decentralized, peer — to-peer taxi service" sounds really cool. But this idea completely ignores all the shortcomings of the blockchain.

By definition, there is no Central authority managing the public blockchain. Who will make decisions in such a company? How about dispute resolution? Once the data has been loaded into the block chain and validated, it cannot be changed. Paid for a trip you didn't take? The driver behaved disgustingly and it needs to be reported? Alas, you are not lucky, because there is no one to complain.

What about development? How will a distributed company without executives compete with one of the richest startups in history with a well-established market share?

Even if a decentralized Uber can overcome all the problems and create a working service, how much better will it be? Uber and other similar centralized apps are already working quite well. The alternative will probably fail to exceed them.

The potential benefits of moving many existing industries to blockchain are not high enough for users to decide to change their habits.

8. The blockchain is not intended for sacrifices of Cthulhu

We will just leave this link here and not go into details.

9. Blockchain is not a platform for memes

10 facts about the blockchain, you don't want to believe
Dogecoin is the most famous cryptocurrency-meme. It was created on the bitcoin code base in 2013 as a joke, but this did not prevent its capitalization from growing to $ 2 billion last year.

10. Blockchain is not useless

Unless, of course, a token based on it was created intentionally.

So what is blockchain?

We have listed all the cases for which the blockchain is not suitable. Now it is time to talk about the scope of its potential application. The blockchain will fit perfectly into the project that needs:

  • Distributed and immutable database;
  • Supports multi-user recording;
  • Does not require trust between the parties;
  • Able to eliminate unnecessary intermediaries;
  • Able to provide consensus and verification.
  • Money fits perfectly into this category. Cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin meet the above criteria and are perfectly compatible with the blockchain.

Unfortunately, at the present time there are not so many other areas that are suitable for mass application of the blockchain. This does not mean that they will never be — we just have not found them yet.

Summing up, we can say that blockchain is a useful technology, but it is not a Savior of business, economy or humanity. We all need to know the true potential of this technology and understand what it can actually achieve.

2013 vs. 2018: how the top 10 cryptocurrencies changed in 5 years

2013 vs. 2018: how the top 10 cryptocurrencies changed in 5 years

2013 vs. 2018: how the top 10 cryptocurrencies changed in 5 years

What fate awaits the current market leaders, if only two of the top 10 cryptocurrencies of 2013 could remain in the list?

Since its birth in 2009, bitcoin has dominated over other cryptocurrencies. Over the years, his example has led to the emergence of numerous altcoins, whose trends, value and value were determined by the dynamics of the oldest and most famous cryptocurrency.

May 26, 2013 on the website CointMarketCap was only 15 cryptocurrencies. Their total capitalization slightly exceeded $ 1.5 billion.

Forbes magazine called 2013 the "year of bitcoin". In that year, the cryptocurrency won the hearts of many investors, hit the headlines and was ahead of the price of gold, reaching a price of $1,242 per coin.

The interest in bitcoin has jumped. Thematic conferences, forums and seminars have started to be held. Some considered cryptocurrency a Scam, others-a promising and attractive project. The truth is that both positions were surprisingly convincing. And-due to the high volatility of the crypto currency in the following years, the attitude towards it was constantly changing.

Here's what the top 10 cryptocurrencies looked like in 2013 — and in what condition they are today.

1. Bitcoin

2013 vs. 2018: how the top 10 cryptocurrencies changed in 5 years

The fall in the us exchanges accelerated in the last minutes of trading. Why?

Us stock indices sharply accelerated the decline before the closing of trading. This was due to passive investment funds. They began to sell shares before the closing of the exchange.

Journalists Wall Street Journal (WSJ) drew attention to the anomaly in yesterday's trading on the new York stock exchange (NYSE). On Thursday evening, October 11, the sale of shares accelerated sharply in the last minutes before the closing of the trading session. S & P 500 for these five minutes fell from 2737,38 to 2728, 37.

The culprit was the index funds ETF, writes Wall Street Journal. We are talking about exchange-traded investment funds that copy the dynamics of a particular index. Their task is to minimize the so-called tracking error, that is, the difference between the ETF dynamics and the tracked index dynamics. The error occurs when the money deposited or withdrawn from the ETF is not quickly converted into shares.

To match the index, many ETFs try to perform operations before closing trades-at the very moment when the final value of the index is formed. As a result, since 2012, according to the WSJ, the volume of transactions before the closing of the trading session increased to 26% of the total volume of transactions.

How to manage investments

Operations of index funds to rebalance portfolios at the last moment can distort the actual results of the day, the article says. This is a continuation of the old discussion between the supporters of active and passive ways of investment management.

The active approach involves self-selection of stock for investment, while the passive shifts the responsibility for selection on the index of operators — that is, those who composes the bonds, blue chips and other stocks by industry, thereby influencing the ETF.

Proponents of active management, who have been steadily losing ground due to too high a Commission in recent years, argue that passive strategies are good as long as they are followed by a relatively small proportion of investors. When their share becomes dominant, following the indices begins to bring additional volatility and even distortions to the markets that do not correspond to the true intentions of investors and the market situation. This is what happened at the end of trading on Thursday, October 11.

Pampa auf Yobit endete. Die Börse wählte PutinCoin

Wer will nicht schnell und einfach Geld verdienen? Sie hatten die Gelegenheit, genug an der Pampa an der Börse Yobit teilzunehmen (darüber haben wir auf dem Kanal geschrieben). Und obwohl die offizielle Windel einer zufälligen Münze Wut und Verurteilung in der kryptokomunition verursacht hat, konnte jemand immer noch gut aufsteigen.

Diesmal Börse wählte Münze PutinCoin. Es ist In der coinmarketcap-Rangliste, wo es 1083 Platz mit einer Marktkapitalisierung von 161 tausend Dollar einnimmt. Wir werden bemerken, dass der Präsident der Russischen Föderation nichts mit der kryptowährung zu tun hat.

Pump it!

Die Geschichte stammt aus dem 11. Oktober. An diesem Tag erschien auf dem offiziellen Twitter-Account Yobit Informationen über die bevorstehende Pampa zufallsmünze an der Börse. Viele nahmen die Nachricht als Witz auf, aber die Vertreter des tauschers hatten ziemlich ernste Absichten.

Das» Opfer " der Pampa war die PUT-Münze (PutinCoin). Während 10 Minuten kaufte die Börse eine bestimmte Anzahl von Münzen im Wert von 1 BTC. In dieser Zeit wurde 10 BTC für den Windeln ausgegeben. Das Ergebnis-PutinCoin stieg um 1400 Prozent (von 118 auf 1768 Satoshi). Darüber hinaus sind die Handelsvolumina der kryptowährung in nur 40 Minuten auf 130 BTC gestiegen.

Alles, was scharf nach oben zieht, sollte genauso dramatisch fallen. Es scheint das Grundgesetz der kryptoindustrie zu sein. Nachdem Yobit aufgehört aufzukaufen PutinCoin, Kurs Münzen entlud sich in nur wenigen Minuten.

Wie auch immer, Yobit schaffte Es, die Marke von 28 Millionen US-Dollar an Handelsvolumina zu überwinden. Höchstwahrscheinlich verwendet der Tauscher nicht mehr zum ersten mal solche Taktiken. Früher wurde das Management der Börse wegen versteckter Windeln von Münzen angeklagt. Laut einer unabhängigen Studie ist Yobit der bevorzugte Ort für altcoins-Machenschaften. Vielleicht wird die Börse in Zukunft weiterhin» offiziell " zufällige kryptowährungen kaufen.
