2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Learning the new generation python and becoming a dev on: October 25, 2022, 11:19:37 AM
Programming has become more and more important in the modern times, especially in the blockchain and web3 space.

We all know Rust, Solidity, Motoko,...which are popular web3 languages.
Why we advise new devs to start with languages as python and javascript ?

Ten thousand of developers are needed in the Web3 space (if not more...).
While web2 developers will need to learn some new skills, many already have the critical foundation they need in languages like Python and JavaScript. For new devs, javascript and python are a perfect start.

Python is one of the most popular programming languages for data science and web3 development. It's a language that's friendly to beginners and developers..
Because python has a large community, it will also have a lot of libraries and APIs.
As an other bonus, Python is readable and has object-oriented capabilities to make programs easier to read without difficulty.

Later when you want to develop smart contracts on Ethereum for ex, you will need solidity. It is important to know that Solidity is heavily based on C++, Python, and JavaScript, so those who already know one or two of these have a big advantage.

Is it possible to learn python in a fun and easy way?
We thought about that, and how to involve as much new and existing devs in this world.

At Kata.Games we developed a toolkit that gives you the opportunity to develop games with basic python. It's a good way to practice and you create your own Indie game that users can play.
It's on the Stellar Development Foundation blockchain, so you are already in web3 as a +

Is also a good way to involve the new generation, and to get them excited in programming, what will be extremely important for their future.

For those interested in this approach and would like to learn more about python and programming, join us in our discord channel.

We are testing new ideas, helping with python programming, and reward testers with LUDO tokens. Those will be the in game token used for the play2earn and create2earn system.

https://discord.gg/fbSG42j8Kr

What you all think about this approach?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Play-To-Earn in a world where you can create your own games? on: October 11, 2022, 11:52:42 AM
We all know the play-to-earn concept by now right?

If not, a little recap:

Play-to-earn is a business model that uses the blockchain technology.
Players can play a game and potentially earn cryptocurrency.

How does all this work?

In play-to-earn games, players can get a hold of potentially valuable in-game assets. That can be anything — from skins or cards to a specific type of cryptocurrency.
The more players play, the more assets they are able to collect, as well as make them more valuable.
Also tasks or quests can be done to get rewards.

In traditional games, these assets are only valuable inside the game in question.
However, in play-to-earn games, they have real-world value.
At any moment, players can transfer these assets to the real world and sell them for cryptocurrency or real money on their own terms.

Moreover, unlike traditional games, these games are decentralized.
This means that the developer isn’t able to control everything.

I already like to play Axie Infinity for ex, but recently discovered a new concept:

Kata Games!

Linktree: https://linktr.ee/katagames

This project is in early Alpha, but I already love the concept!
If you already know Pygame, it is a similar style, but play-to-earn and on the blockchain.

The concept is a create/play/earn system.
Kata Games approach is to make it easy for developers and builders to create Indiegames by providing a single system with all built-in tools.
The games are connected in a fun metaverse, and users can easily play the different created games by moving around in this virtual world.

Is also a great way to get familiar with the python language, as the toolkit will let you use the basics in an easy way.

The token used in game will be build on the Stellar blockchain to start, afterwards it will probably become multichain.

Watch this project closely, it's early phase, but might rise fast to become a new platform for gamers.

If you want to stay UpToDate about token release, start of beta, how to build your own game, contests for gamers and builders,...

Join the Discord server with a nice community of gamers and devs here:

Happy building all Wink
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Women in Web3 : The positive evolution on: July 27, 2022, 10:30:42 AM
The power of #Tanith

Tanith (Tanit) was the mother goddess of fertility and the moon. She was the patron goddess of Carthage and is related to Ishtar and Astarte.
Today, the goddess Tanith remains revered in Ibiza and its ancient temple, a cave with an altar in the center, located on the road to Portinatx and designated "Cova de's Cuieram".

Why Am I talking about a Goddess ❓❓❓

In Ibiza the female energy is very important, as Tanith is part of our Island. I think it is important in #web3 and #blockchain to keep the same balance.
Crypto, like most tech sectors, has received the “boys club” reputation. At its core, crypto was billed as a risky investment.
Women, who are normally more risk averse, shielded away from the initial wave.

I am happy to see we are breaking this trend in the #blockchain space.

Web3 becomes more welcoming when speculation takes a backseat to participation. When people feel like #owners instead of speculators or flippers, they will have a deeper connection to a project. We need more Web3 initiatives that will appeal to humanity’s infinitely-wide range of interests.

How stronger the utility of web3 becomes for humanity, how more we see the deeper connection and the female energy joining the space.

For example, the recent promenade at #Davos was taken over by #crypto #companies as #ICP, exceeding the traditional finance and tech presence, but it was the presence of so #many #women in senior positions representing every segment of the crypto industry that confirmed my firm belief that the future of #web3 is bright.

An April 2022 report saw women’s participation increase over 170% in the last fiscal year. Moreover, women on average made larger initial deposits, and although they traded less frequently, their portfolios showed more structured strategies and focused positions.

Also at the InternetComputer the group of strong female personalities keeps growing. Shruti Sutwala Martina Zlatkova Angela Marie Harp Giulia Guizzardi ...to just name a few of the many.
I can only applause this evolution. Keeping the balance is very important for innovation and development, and the blockchain world is definitely on the right track!

Many thanks to all of you! We need your energy more than ever.

IT'S TIME TO REBUILD, DEVELOP, LEARN, INVEST

I know, it doesn't seem that way.

1️⃣ #inflation is eating our savings (if you have savings...).
2️⃣ #Shortages of food and other goods are likely to get worse.
3️⃣ There’s no visible end to the war in #Ukraine and #Russia (plus we have no idea what #China might do).
4️⃣ #Markets keep falling again and again (isn’t everyone’s portfolio in red?)

🎆That is the end of the bad news show. #History thought us that situations like this do not last.

As painful as they are, #bear markets are survivable, and are even necessary for a market. Unfortunately, some good smaller projects get in trouble during a bear cycle in #crypto, but a lot of bad projects needed to go.

#Bearmarkets have come (and go) plenty of times over the years. And on the other side…there’s another #bull market coming, like always.

Some #cryptos did not survive the bear market of 2017-2018. Plenty of them did.
Just like the .com companies that got wiped off the map after the 2000 crash… While Amazon and Google went on to rule the world.

👍👍👍Time in a bear market could be well spent.

🧠 Focus on #learning about #blockchain, develop useful #skills, create a #network with like-minded people, and all of that while building your #portfolio during a market experiencing some amazing #discounts.

📱Do Your Own Research (AKA #DYOR). Understand why projects as #Bitcoin, #InternetComputer, #Ethereum,...will stay at or rise to the top, while others are long gone from the top 10 of 2017.

#Cycles like this give good projects time to develop, build bigger teams, work on mass adoption plans,...as they don't care about price. They will survive anyway, as they have a #longterm vision. The ones that focused on hype...well....

❗❗❗Don't get caught two steps behind.
If you are focussing on the good projects, you can just relax.
This is #crypto and cycles are normal, they don't last. See it as #discount moments.

Without more words, I will let the historical graphs hereunder speak...They say it all.

Have a great day and chill 😁

7  Economy / Economics / Privacy, control and trust. on: April 26, 2022, 01:10:30 PM
Privacy, control and trust.
Is decentralization the key?

The same word keeps coming back over and over when reading about WEB3: #decentralization .
#bitcoin being a decentralized currency, #ethereum trying to be a decentralized ecosystem, #dapps (decentralized applications),...we can continue for a while...

Why the focus on #decentralization in #Web3?

📱Let’s do a small recap.

A decentralized web (Web3) relies on a peer-to-peer network built upon a community of users. Every website or application gets distributed across hundreds of nodes located on different devices.

This reduces the chance of a server crash, #hackers taking down a website, losing your data or an authoritarian government taking control of and/or censoring opinions. It removes TRUST out of the equation, everything is transparent on the #blockchain and not controlled by one entity, it's community driven.

but 🤔⁉️ what’s the difference with #WEB2?

Web 2.0 is what we are experiencing at the moment. Companies develop and provide products and services in a centralized manner. Facebook for example:
Do you think you own your #Facebook pictures? No, the company owns everything on the platform, and they have complete control of all the content that users create there. If they want to ban you or block you, they will do it. You have no control over your own data.
This gives a huge amount of power to a centralized entity…that maybe you don’t even #trust.

Web 3.0 is a concept for the next generation of the internet. It is the evolution of how users are able to #control and #own their creations and online content, digital assets and online identities.

“The promise of #Web3 is building new web protocols and infrastructure that should allow developers to build apps where users bring their own data and where identity is no longer tied to any specific platform,” to quote Biilmann.
 
🧠 Are you excited to try decentralization in Web3?

The Internet Computer (#IC) is a good place to start. You can already experiment in a decentralized environment, where you control your own assets in a community driven ecosystem.

Here are already some of the possibilities:
🛠 Build anything on the Blockchain - front-end and back-end
❌ Develop a Downtime proof web service
🔗 Build Community-based ownership & voting systems
💲 Build it affordably

What is your opinion about decentralization?
8  Economy / Economics / Why is it always about price? on: April 21, 2022, 11:01:08 AM
Why is it always about price?

In this topic I want to talk about something that frustrated me a bit in the last months (the correction…you know...) : The obsession with price.

When I was drinking my coffee last week, and was reading through my favourite #crypto socials, 90% of the info I saw was about price. #Bitcoin not holding support, a selloff in #XRP coming in, #Chainlink continuing a downtrend pattern, this was a bear trap, we go under 20k,…

Shouldn’t we rather talk a bit more about fundamentals or/and all the positive news happening in the space? When the nights are dark and full of terrors, shouldn’t we bring some light?

Web3 has so much potential. It is a technology that has the chance to have a bigger impact on society than the launch of the Internet.
I quote David García, professor, researcher and consultant specialized in blockchain;
(Translated from Spanish, full article here : https://blog.ibizatoken.com/david-garcia-the-problem-with-blockchain-is-that-people-see-it-as-just-another-technology-but-its-not-its-a-sociological-shift)

“The most interesting aspect of blockchain is that it can change society and that it has the economic incentives needed to bring about this change. Blockchain allows you to do financial social experiments instantly and globally."

Having the opportunity to be connected globally in a decentralized way and having #decentralized ecosystems communicating with each other worldwide, is something big… It can be the begin of a new type of society, one that is more transparent, more efficient, more…well…better. You got my point…the possibilities are just endless.

As you all noticed, I don’t talk much about price action on my channels (more interesting things were happening in web3), especially not if it’s just negative (sometimes incorrect) information…Is not really a motivator for new padawans that just joined the space…

This Is just an opinion, and I understand trading is part of the game,… a little adjustment in the amounts of information about the essentials of what we are doing, could only help mainstream adoption, in my humble opinion. Most of you got hooked like me, so you are also convinced about the potential of the technology, and you know it’s just about getting the word out about the fundamentals and the utility.

To end, a big up to all of you already spreading all the good and interesting news about blockchain and web3, as I am reading/watching/listening you too 😉

As a little help, here are some examples of good news happening right now:

1)    #Ethereum still processed 35.99M transactions in 03/2022, in 03/2020 this was 22.75M. Not a bad evolution in 2 years, isn’t it? And this before 2.0.

2)    Canister smart contracts running on the #InternetComputer blockchain have surpassed 43,000. Begin December last year, it was only around 15000…(see infographic hereunder)

3)    Monthly #Chainlink VRF requests grew to 4.4 million in 03/2022. Begin December last year they were around 2.5M.

9  Economy / Economics / Passive income : Bank interest vs staking on: April 13, 2022, 09:37:55 AM
PASSIVE INCOME
(the article I found here: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6917793863591993344/  One of the bigger experts in WEB3)

Banks VS Crypto : Interest vs Staking

Today, the most common way people seek to turn profit on their investments is with a savings account in a bank.

However, depending on where you are based and the options available to you, odds are that even the most generous savings account will only pay somewhere in the range of 1-2% yearly, if you are very lucky...This value is barely above the rate of inflation in most countries, and is actually a worthless return.

Luckily Crypto has an alternative for the Bank 's "interest":

#STAKING

If you're a crypto investor, staking is a concept you'll hear about often. Staking is the way many #cryptocurrencies verify their transactions, and it allows participants to earn rewards on their holdings (aka the interest of cryptos). The interest a holder gets, depends a lot of the crypto itself. It can go from 5% till much higher returns.

One of the crypto's with interesting staking returns is #ICP¨, as it can give you uptill 28% APY (yearly).
Sounds better no?

HOW DO I STAKE ON ICP using NNS?

1. CREATE AN INTERNET IDENTITY

You will need to create an internet identity to login to the NNS app. This is easy to do if you have a fingerprint reader on your computer or phone or you have face id on your phone. (if you don't, you will need a physical key, for ex Yubikey or you will have to connect a wallet)

Create your Identity here:
https://identity.ic0.app/
(never forget to write down your seedphrase)

2. LOG IN THE Network Nervous System DAPP

The network nervous system is the way that the internet computer is governed, and staking ICP will allow you to participate in the community governance of the internet computer.

Connect here:
https://nns.ic0.app/v2/

After authorizing, you have successfully logged into the Network Nervous System (NNS )

3. TRANSFER YOUR ICP to your NNS Wallet

Once you login with internet identity you should see a “Main” wallet displayed. There is a long wallet address underneath the name. This is the ICP wallet address for your “Main” wallet. Now, go to Coinbase or Binance (or wherever your ICP is) and transfer your ICP to that wallet address. It should only take a few minutes (at the most) for the transfer to go through.

4. STAKE YOUR ICP IN YOUR NNS Wallet

Step 1: Click on the Neurons tab and click Stake Neuron.
Step 2: Enter the total number of ICP you want to stake, and click create.
Step 3: Set the dissolve delay to your preferred years of stake, and click update delay and confirm it.
Step 4: Next, select your topics of interest for the proposals you can vote for. As here, you actually own your currency (not banks holding it) and you can vote on topics for the governance of the ecosystem.

Enjoy your freedom and your real passive income Wink

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The Internet computer (ICP): The new developments look amazing on: March 18, 2022, 10:32:01 AM
Hi all,

I start this topic to know your opinion about an ecosystem I have been following for a while now, The Internet Computer.
For me it is a big competitor for ETH, Polygon, Harmony,...

Lets avoid to look at price action, as that is bad for the whole market atm, and I am more interested in fundamentals and long term thinking then short term price action...

The advantages of ICP were already impressive:

- Reversed gas fees
- No scalability issues
- Decentralized and community governance
- Strong ecosystem of Dapps being build (Distrikt, Entrepot, Sonic, Stoic,...)
- Constantly updated

As I see the developments now with Titanium and Motoko (1 universal language, is a dream...), this project should get massive attention very soon...

What is your opinion? Are you also holders?

Curious.

PS

For those that dont know, Titanium update:

The Internet Computer (IC) is attracting DeFi dapp developers. The ability to serve web-content directly from on-chain, unparalleled transaction speed, insignificant transaction and storage costs, and the fact that all data is stored on-chain make the IC the ideal blockchain network for DeFi. With the Titanium milestone, essential DeFi building blocks will be released, including APIs for accessing the IC ledger and for token transactions, examples illustrating the most common DeFi use cases, and a ledger canister that can be used by dapp developers.

https://dfinity.org/roadmap/?m=titanium

Motoko:

One key feature of the Internet Computer blockchain is the Motoko programming language. The Motoko programming language is a high-level, general purpose language that is similar to other modern programming languages, but specifically designed to handle asynchronous messaging efficiently.

Although Motoko provides an interpreter that can be used interactively and a standalone compiler, you can write programs and compile your code without using either one directly. Instead, in most cases, you interact with the programming language indirectly through an editor of your choice and using the dfx command-line execution tool.
