2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / FOXICO STARTS ICO's RATINGS BY COMMUNITY MEMBERS on: July 13, 2018, 12:50:41 PM
Hello guys!

Are you tired of unfair/corrupted ratings? Experts who are already advisers in 100+ ICOs and offer  you to buy their score or become an advisor in exchange for revenue share?

Or may be you are an individual who wants to find really good and promising projects but you are already tired searching over several rating web-sites/spreadsheets realizing almost all have same 4+ score and you do not know where to search?

FOXICO is here with a solution to change this situation! We are about to start the new version where EVERYONE CAN RATE! Stop - we know what you have just thought - how can unprofessionals rate? Right? We solve this problem as well - everyone who rates will be rated by others and this will help to avoid affiliate/corrupted ratings and highlight professionals.

The real time dialog between the community and projects will be created to make this win-win cooperation. Scams will be labeled as scams and good projects will have opportunity to get fresh market feedback on their weaknesses and possibility to improve it.

All these mentioned above will make the market more transparent, fair and attractive for new investors.

Sounds like a nice idea, isn't it?

If you are interested, you can join our telegram  @foxicoteam and become an early bird tester of the upcoming new version.

If you have any others question you are welcome to discuss it here or in Telegram

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Basic Income Guarantee on: October 13, 2017, 10:51:11 PM

 "Universal Basic Income — or an economic idea where everyone gets a paycheck from the government to spend how they wish — is one of the only solutions to the rise of robotic automation". (source)       
Elon Musk

It so happened that not so long ago, this spring to be more precise, I got to know the blockchain technology. Of course, in my business I have already come across this concept, but plunged into it only in May 2017. Undoubtedly, on the one hand it was due to the skyrocketing hype of Crypto-currencies, ICO and blockchain technology, and, on the other hand, we were looking for new opportunities for the implementation of our e-commerce project.

It was at the beginning of July that we successfully held pre-sale, and the more we studied all the possibilities of this technology, the more we understood the global nature of the changes this technology brings to our lives. What is happening now in the crypto world can be called the first faltering steps, and mostly to the touch. For me personally it all looks like an attempt to shift the old paradigm to new technology. This is about the same as harnessing horses in a car. At the same time, we completely forget that the blockchain philosophy is much deeper and more revolutionary. And in order to understand this, it is necessary to change one's thinking. One must imagine this world functioning on absolutely different principles.

The fundamental features of the blockchain are decentralization, openness of data and the inability to change or forge this data. That means, what was once recorded in the blockchain remains there forever, and anyone has access to this information. For example, you have bought an apartment and a corresponding entry was made in the blockchain. In the future you will not need an extract from the register of real estate, its certification from a notary and other bureaucracy. Now a huge number of institutions and employees are carrying out work that can be completely replaced by blockchain technology, from real estate documents to the judicial process. At the same time, the speed of operations in which they are involved, and their transparency will grow by tens. This state of affairs, of course, will not improve the situation with unemployment, although it is just the blockchain that can completely eradicate unemployment as an inalienable phenomenon of modern economy.

It is more correct to say that this will be facilitated by the introduction of the unconditional basic income. I first read about this concept in the article   :

The income that every member of society receives regardless of his social status, age, gender, etc. Later, I studied a lot of sources on this issue. The most interesting thing is that this topic dates back to the 16th century and is mentioned in many works of philosophers and statesmen. Since the 20th century this idea has been seriously considered at the state level of many countries and is included in the political program of various parties. Social experiments are conducted in many countries, proving the viability of this idea. But, unfortunately, the real implementation of this concept encounters a huge number of obstacles, the meaning of which can be reduced to one - a complex and expensive implementation process. One can only imagine what efforts will be required to turn a huge state machine toward an unconditional basic income. It will be necessary to change the existing system of social insurance, the pension system, the taxation system. To change the migration policy, since the introduction of basic income guarantee at the local level will cause a wave of migration from less developed countries.

The blockchain technology allows not only to do this with minimal expenses, but also to provide this system with the fundamental principle for unconditional basic income, i.e. the principle of fair and unbiased distribution. More details on the concept of basic income can be found here.

We decided to implement this concept. The result of our work was BIG.Foundation. Here we have combined the idea of basic income and modern technologies. For the basic income guarantee to come to life, a number of conditions must be fulfilled:

1. a person must receive income

2. he must be able to spend his income

3. there should be no centralized regulation of currency issue

4. the system should be self-regulating and should seek to reduce inflation automatically

The blockchain technology allows to decentralize the issuing of the crypto currency and to charge it in equal quantity to all participants of the system. Thus, the distribution of funds doesn't go from the top level down but is immediately distributed at the lowest level.

Adding goods and services that can be sold and bought provides the crypto currency with liquidity and minimizes the need to enter and withdraw crypto currency from this closed system.

There is an issue of inflation, though. If we constantly issue new money, then we will get hyperinflation. Hence, it is necessary that the basic income comes to all participants from the already existing money supply. For this purpose, a consumption tax is introduced. Any transaction in the system is subject to 10% consumption tax, which is immediately redistributed among all participants. Thus, if the amount of commissions in the system is less than the emission, then the necessary part to achieve a minimum basic income is issued by the system. But as soon as the amount of commissions equals or surpasses the minimum basic income, the system stops issuing, and the basic income is formed from commissions of the system. The higher turnover in the system, the higher the unconditional basic income is.

All the beauty of this system is that it is closed, self-regulating and decentralized.

The fulfillment of the idea of unconditional basic income is the necessity of a postindustrial society, when the level of automation and robotization of production and services has reached a level at which the need for manual labor, if not completely eliminated, tends to a minimum. Now many famous people, for example, Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Ma, Elon Musk, etc., talk about the need to introduce basic income.   

            "Basic income protects us from the threat of AI. [...] It is obvious that AI is a challenge for the whole world, since it is likely that it will take a lot of jobs. [..] We all need to be enterprising enough to create these new jobs" (source).
 Richard Branson                                                     

The current situation in the economy, in fact, has become a hostage to the need to increase the number of jobs, on the one hand, and the emergence of an increasing number of technologies that liberate people from manual labor, on the other. The result is a decrease in the cost of labor and an increase in the number of unemployed. At the same time, the so-called unemployment benefits do not help to solve this. They are either too low and do not fulfill the necessary support function, or if they are at the subsistence level (as in European countries), then for 80% of people receiving such benefits are a stopper for job search. Even if most of these people can find a job, it is likely to be unskilled and badly paid. And not many people would be interested in working for 8 hours a day for the salary almost equal to their benefit. If you receive the same basic income, any work will really increase your income. And then a person will be able to choose a job based on his or her own interests, and not just on the basis of the salary level.

       "We need to explore ideas, such as basic income, to make sure that everyone has a" safety cushion" that will allow anyone to turn their ideas into reality" (source).                                               
Mark Zuckerberg

Unfortunately, we live in a world where most people take the surrounding system for granted, often forgetting that it is man-made. Everything was created by people like us, but 100-500 years ago.

Mankind does not stand still. New knowledge and new technologies make serious changes in the existing reality. We live in an interesting time, and we have the opportunity to witness such changes that the previous generations could not even imagine.

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Ahoolee presale - first search engine for online shopping! on: June 15, 2017, 09:06:34 AM

Ahoolee is the world’s first search engine dedicated to online shopping worldwide. Ahoolee uses a decentralized platform for open collecting and indexing information from open sources with confirmation of authenticity based on blockchain technology.



Product website:

The mission of our project is to enable any person to find any product on the Web, see ALL the shops where it can be purchased, and compare them by price.
We are for the full openness of information and we believe that information about stores, their prices and price changes should be open. However, we cannot trust any commercial company because it has its own commercial interests, so we store all the data on all the price changes in all online stores in the world in a decentralized way using the Ahoolee blockchain.

This instrument makes it possible to analyze the entire e-commerce market fully and it will be available to everyone.

In addition, Ahoolee’s own cryptocurrency will enable users to purchase any items in all the stores represented on the platform. At the moment, Ahoolee’s database contains more than 40 million SKUs, and the number grows daily.

We plan ICO in 3 steps, like venture investments. We're going to have a traction between all of them and everyone can see, that we make a real product, anyone can use it and may be company even have some revenue already. That's why we don't try to get $50M right now. We don't need them now. This money is necessary for scale and we'll get it when we're going to scale.

A total of 100 million Ahoolee tokens will be issued.

20 million will be kept by the Reserve Fund to pay miners and assessors. These tokens will be kept in multi-signature wallets.
10 million will be kept by the Ahoolee Fund for the team and partners and in order to hire new staff and develop the project further over the next 5 years. These tokens will be kept in multi-signature wallets.

ICO would be launched in a few steps:

1. Pre-sale (July 2017).
On Pre-sale round would be sold 10 million AHT. Cap - $200,000. Price 1 AHT = $0.02
Cash will go to preparation of public launch of Ahoolee search engine and to marketing and preparation of ICO seed-round.

2. ICO seed-round (28th August - 11th September 2017).
On ICO seed-round would be sold 25 million AHT.
Soft Cap - $1,000,000
Cap - $3,750,000
Hard Cap - $10,000,000
Price 1 AHT = $0.15 - $0.4
Cash will go to development of in-house blockchain as a fork of Ethereum, to wallet development, to mining launch and to product marketing. In 6 months we’ll increase the number of SKUs in the system to 1 billion and the number of stores in the system to 50 000. Also we’ll develop and launch an assessor cabinet to teach machine learning matching algorithms. Not less than 20% of funds will go to product marketing in a few countries.

3. ICO (April 2018).
On ICO would be sold 30 million AHT. Cap - $50,000,000. Price 1 AHT = $1.66
Cash will go to global marketing, sales scale to sell premium-accounts and contextual advertising for stores. Ahoolee will start accepting AHT as a means of payment in any stores available in the Ahoolee search engine.

11  Local / Кодеры / Делать ли свой блокчейн? on: June 07, 2017, 01:59:07 PM
Всем привет, так случилось, что мы столкнулись с необходимостью использовать блокчейн технологию в нашем проекте. Но поизучав все вокруг, есть ощущение, что ни один из уже работающих блокчейнов не может решить нашу задачу, хотя мы может быть ошибаемся и вы сможете нам помочь?

Задача: записывать изменения цен на товары в интернет-магазинах.

Организация процесса:
- раздача на децентрализованные узлы задач для парсинга урлов с товарами и ценами.
- подтверждение парсинга N узлами. (делается ограничение на количество узлов (чтобы не создавать ddos на сайт магазина)
- скрытие данных узлов друг от друга, чтобы избежать фрода со стороны узлов.
- запись подтвержденного парсинга в блокчейн.

На данный момент мы выработали такую схему:
Транзакция – это набор адресов для актуализации цены + смарт-контракт на выполнение парсинга.

1. Первый этап: майнеры подбирают хэш, который дает право спарсить информацию и подписать смарт-контракт.

2. Первый майнер, подобравший хэш, парсит необходимые данные, генерирует приватный и публичный ключи, после чего прикладывает в смарт-контракт публичный ключ и зашифрованные им полученные данные. Шифрование делается для того, чтобы исполнители смарт-контракта не знали о данных полученных первым майнером и не могли подделать информацию без парсинга. Таким образом исполнители смарт-контракта (со 2-го по N майнеры, нашедшие хэш) также парсят данные по адресам, присутствующим в транзакции, шифруют их публичным ключом первого майнера, передают данные в смарт-контракт и подписывают его.

3.После получения N подписей, данные из смарт-контракта расшифровываются и проверяются первым майнером и если все данные от парсеров совпадают, смарт-контракт закрывается, а транзакция получает статус “в ожидании”.

4. Параллельно майнеры собирают все транзакции, находящиеся в статусе “в ожидании”, формируют из них блок и подбирают хэш, чтобы добавить блок в блокчейн.
После добавления блока в блокчейн происходит эмиссия, и токены распределяются между майнерами, которые подписали смарт-контракты и тем, кто создал блок и добавил его в блокчейн.

Собственно вопрос. Есть ли блокчейн, на базе которого мы можем реализовать этот процесс? Или мы намудрили и можно как-то это все упростить?
