2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Different Ways to Record History and the Historia Alternative on: May 10, 2019, 06:39:20 AM
The first time humans began to record history isn’t exactly known but throughout the years, societies around the world have preserved knowledge about the past.

In ancient times, historians relied mainly on people’s memories for the stories of the past, as there were no written records. In those days, ancient storytellers developed powerful ways of remembering things, particularly special events.

Fast forward to the modern day, we expect history to be recorded based not on the memory of the historian but on written factual evidence.

Traditional ways of “doing history”

Traditionally, histories were transmitted orally through performance and were told from one generation to the next as a story. Performers were encouraged to manipulate their medium for the most pleasing results while preserving the basic story.  In addition, aides such as music were used to help historians recall and organize an extensive amount of information in the best possible way.

Important individuals such as kings were immortalized in sculptural traditions and preserved over time. These were often central to the political workings of the kingdom. Even traditional art depicted past events and ceremonies, and provided unparalleled visual records of the lives of people prior to written history.

One major limitation with oral history is that it often includes parallel versions of the same story which makes it difficult to find the single original one.

Written history

History based on written records first appeared in Egypt and Sumer a little more than 5000 years ago. For example, the ancient Sumerian people used weeds cut at an angle to make wedge-shaped marks on clay, which was then baked hard. That way, they would record details about the number of cattle, sheep, and wheat. Although many of them could not read and write, those records started to become the basis for further historical accounts.

As societies became more interconnected, people began to compare different accounts of the past and question them. Where there were competing versions of the past, people wanted to know which version is truest. As a result, historians began to give evidence for their accounts of the past in order to be taken seriously. Today, history based on written evidence remains the primary form of preserving records of historical facts and events for future generations. More specifically, modern written history seeks to reconstruct past events objectively and accurately.

But written records have limitations. First of all, history based on written documents only tells us about the lives of the rich and powerful—largely because such history only reach back a few thousand years ago when most of the other people could not read or write, so they weren’t well represented in the documents. Furthermore, written records like books cannot be retrieved once destroyed while publicly available repositories like Wikipedia can easily be edited or deleted. This makes it highly difficult to ascertain the reliability of the information contained in these platforms.

The Historia Alternative

Historia aims to make History deep, rich and accurate. Historia is a blockchain-based database focused on recording the original account of history to ensure that knowledge of the past is preserved for years to come. Thanks to blockchain technology, current and future events facts can be validated as accurate accounts and recorded in an immutable database to deter alteration and deletion.

Unlike written records that cannot be recovered once destroyed or lost, Historia blockchain preserves historical facts and events in their original form for several years to come. With blockchain, it is impossible for this information to be altered, deleted or censored by a bad actor or government entity.

More importantly, Historia empowers everyone to become the historian—to actively record and preserve historical events as they happen and ensure that no parallel versions emerge in the future.

I have been seeing so many massages been posted by this project, but the truth is that I have never took my time to read with the content of the message was because I wasn't interested, but now I took my time to read it, but I can't still understand what you are trying to talk about, I can't decode how what you said in year is related to crypto in general, the only place I saw you mention anything crypto related was when you said we could mine your coin.
Hi sir, yes, we want to let more people know our ideas, we are NGC project based on connecting history with blockchain, for mining, sure, people can alway mine HTA (We posted already in Bitciontalk how to mine). About Historia, we are a consensus-based historical record storage blockchain. More details you can find on our website Historia.network. Smiley

Okay I think it is good time. BTC stays at 5K for over one month and seems more stable, and sure Alts are good performing since Feb. Some coins I bought and why:

Bitcoin
Bitcoin is the single largest and most recognized cryptocurrency in existence.

Stellar Lumens
Stellar Lumens is a similar technology to Ripple, however, instead of focusing solely on the banks they have built a system to integrate merchants, banks and the general population.

Historia
A novel idea. To keep current happenings on the blockchain. To ensure that in the future third parties politicians and etc wouldn’t twist facts based on their needs.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How the wisdom of the masses can ensure the authenticity of information on: May 04, 2019, 03:21:33 AM
Many have questioned the wisdom of the so-called “wisdom of the masses” but there is so much truth underpinning the idea that masses make more accurate collective judgments than expert individuals.

The essence of the wisdom of the crowd is that the average judgment converges on the right solution. That as long as people’s decisions are independent of one another, collective decision-making is much better than that provided by individual experts. For example, by averaging together the individual guesses of a large group about the weight of an ox, the answer was found to be amazingly accurate than the guesses of cattle experts.

The notion that a group’s judgment can be surprisingly good was popularized by James Surowiecki in his 2005 book The Wisdom of Crowds. Surowiecki explained that wise crowds have three key characteristics.  First off, the crowd should be able to have diverse opinions. Secondly, an individual’s opinion should remain independent and free from influence by anyone around them. Third, each individual within the crowd should be able to base their opinion on individual knowledge. Lastly, the crowd should aggregate their individual opinions into one collective decision.

Using these inherent characteristics of the wisdom of masses,  Historia leverages the power of the crowd to record and authenticate information in the blockchain. Under the right circumstances, crowds are smarter and make better decisions. Indeed collective wisdom is near-impossible to beat and the collective judgment of a large group can compensate for the bias of a small group.  Historia, therefore, enables accurate recording of current events and future history giving everyone to take part in history gatekeeping.

Similar to the way Google allows Web page producers to vote on which pages are most worthwhile to be put at the top of search results by linking to them, Historia incentivizes users to submit and vote on content that is as accurate as possible. The principle is fundamentally democratic—every vote counts and each user has equal voting power.

When a user submits current events to the blockchain, all other users will have a chance to vote this record up or down. If the majority of users come to a consensus after researching the proposed record and determining that it is accurate, then the record will receive funding and be permanently added to the Historia blockchain.  The record will, therefore, become immutable and can neither be altered, edited, or deleted. Not only does this enhance the authenticity of historical records, but it also ensures that information is recorded in an uneditable manner to help prevent future censorship and bias.

Our goal is that by allowing the masses to record consensus-based contemporary historical records as it occurs, future technical historians can produce a more accurate record of history. The world can, therefore, have an accurate account of history that is based on consensus, rather than one restricted by the political will of a specific country, or media bias.

Right now you can get involved with Historia in two ways: become a miner of Historia coins or purchase HTA coins to start running your own Historia masternodes and own a piece of this revolutionary project.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Is IEO Profitable than ICO's? on: April 29, 2019, 03:07:13 AM
IEO trend lasts for months and many projects I know changed their ICO plan to IEO. And obviously, IEO performed quite well. Like Huobi, Binance. While I am not so optimistic that it will live longer then ICO, Gate.io IEO is a disaster. And people start to lose faith in that. There will be nothing that will be living permanently. Same like ICO, the most important is do your own research, find out good projects and invest, that is the most important. Here is my list of projects that have the best future as of today (Including Alts):

Bitcoin
Ethereum
Stellar
Historia.network
BLOC
DGB
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Where to invest 500$ on: April 27, 2019, 04:41:47 AM
It is small investment, so can but Alts all in, some goods projects, BNB (Which is always good), BTT (High potential), HTA (A good NGC project), MITH (Not bad), DFN (Not lised yet while I think can invest once online)
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Choose with me on: April 26, 2019, 05:34:16 AM
Sorry I know nothing about these coins you listed... Which altcoins to chose, all depends on what is your aim. To make a quick buck now or invest some for future gains. Some main coins, with a combination of a few good ICO projects

fyi I am focusing now on

BTC (Yes Still)
ETH (As always)
LTC

While investing some resource on alt projects that I strongly believe to be strong players in their own field later in the future

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Why people should take part in recording history on: April 26, 2019, 05:27:59 AM
The responsibility of recording historical information is often consigned to historians and trusted individuals whose superior knowledge and experience enable them to remember and interpret huge collections of facts for the benefit of society.

A significant problem with relying on historians for recording knowledge about our past is their tendency to interpret things based on their cultural norms and personal insights, often revealing their own bias and conclusions. Some of the factors that cloud historians thinking about past events include generalization, myths and mythology, conspiracy theories, Eurocentrism, and nationalism. Because of these reasons, we have a current history that is riddled with holes and inaccuracies. This creates a considerable gulf between truthful, coherent history and what is known as ‘popular history’ allowing some people to twist history the way they want it to meet their own needs. Popular history is often simplified, distorted and filled with obvious villains or fulfilling resolutions. Real history, on the hand, is more rigorous and coherently written based on evidence that seeks to examine historical sources, though the shape it should take is flexible and open to debate.

How history is recorded has a significant influence on our understanding of historical events, and view of the world. First off, conflicting historical narratives of events create distortions that hinder our appreciation of the distinctiveness of historical experiences. For history to be effective at teaching us valuable lessons about the past, it has to be written and recorded as accurately as possible. That way, the general public can have confidence in historians to tell an unfettered, impartial and objective truth about current and future events.

Luckily, for those who take a keen interest in documenting historical events, history is open to all, regardless of experience or credentials. This means that we can all participate in writing and recording history not only for our own benefit, but also for future generations. By harnessing the power of “wisdom of masses” we can foster accurate recording of current events and future history to ensure the authenticity of historical information.

Giving everyone the power to participate in recording history is the mission of Historia. We have built a decentralized database committed to preserving the original account of global history. It allows anyone with clear proof of an accurate historical event to upload their case to the Historia blockchain for a review that will be analyzed by a diverse, globally distributed pool of voters. Thanks to Historia, people from all over the world are able to actively record and preserve historical facts as they happen, the way they happened.

More specifically, Historia employs blockchain technology to decentralize the recording of current events from the few to the many, providing an immutable log to history and a platform to combat censorship, manipulation, and deletion. This is critical in enhancing accountability and transparency as well as collaboration among all participants. 

Now everyone can take an active stance in writing and preserving history, without restriction or fear of persecution.

I am not an expert, while I think IEO and STO have better future than ICO. And exchange coins are also a good option. Look at Binance, since the start of IEO and Launchpad, BNB growths 6X since end of 2018. It is now 24USD, I missed that...

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How Historia can help keep politicians accountable on: April 19, 2019, 06:47:42 AM
Holding politicians accountable hasn’t always been easy in the past and many citizens have faced a myriad of challenges trying to exert political oversight. The reality is that citizens need substantial information about the government to hold officials accountable.

Put simply, political accountability requires politicians to account for election promises as well as actions made when designing and implementing laws and regulations. Unfortunately, this is often difficult to achieve—largely because citizens are not informed well enough—and there is very little voters can do outside of not re-electing the politician in the next election.

However, nascent technologies such as blockchain can empower more of us to demand accountability from politicians who break their promises. We explain how.
Blockchain is essentially a secure digital database, or ledger spread across thousands of computers all over the world and which is both tamper-proof and self-auditing. Information held on blockchain exists as a distributed and continually reconciled database, which means the data is truly transparent and easily verifiable. Tapping into these inherent benefits of blockchain distributed ledger, we can record and preserve current events and political rhetoric in an immutable and secure manner for future references. These records will, therefore, serve as a point of reference for highlighting broken promises and holding politicians accountable.

Keeping politicians accountable is a novel mission for Historia. Our hope is that by promoting civic engagement through record keeping, we can show politicians and government administrators that we are paying attention to their actions. It is important to highlight such developments in order to keep politicians accountable. Historia has built a blockchain-powered digital database for keeping accurate records about our current events and for tracking changes made to the information so that ultimately it can still be trusted as accurate and authentic.

In particular, Historia facilitates accurate documentation of current and future events using encryption, cryptography, and IPFS content storage system, preventing third-party interference or censorship. This provides citizens with a secure platform for reporting and monitoring politicians’ misconduct without fear of retribution. Through Historia blockchain, we can promote transparency and accountability by alerting the public to illegal or improper government activity as well as keeping politicians in check.

If you find something questionable, simply submit it to the Historia blockchain for a review. Your submission will be analyzed by a diverse, globally distributed pool of voters and if it is determined that it is accurate, it will be added in the blockchain for all to see. That way, we can record and share it permanently in the blockchain in order to raise awareness and demand action. Moreover, it would be impossible for government officials to restrict access to these records once they are stored in Historia blockchain.
Historia offers the most effective solution for fact-checking and evaluating political rhetoric to ensure that politicians live to their words.  Right now the project is focused on recording images and fact-based news articles as the exemplary case of the platform but it will be scaled to other applications later.

Yes I agree, pick up some good coins, stay far away from the scam coins. Or you will possibly still lose your investment...

Below is the list of top 4 coins I mainly focus (not only Alts) and the reason why.

Bitcoin
Bitcoin is the single largest and most recognized cryptocurrency in existence.

Stellar Lumens
Stellar Lumens is a similar technology to Ripple, however, instead of focusing solely on the banks they have built a system to integrate merchants, banks and the general population.

Historia
A novel idea. To keep current happenings on the blockchain. To ensure that in the future third parties politicians and etc wouldn’t twist facts based on their needs.

Monero (XMR) — privacy enabled by default. There will always be a demand for an anonymous channel for commerce.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Invest in ICO or buy BTC? on: April 13, 2019, 03:37:08 AM
My advice would be to invest at least 30% in the market leader of the block chain - BITCOIN.

And with some potential altcoins, I would suggest to search for project that are already going on and never done any ICO nor they have any premine, instamine or founder taxes. This way the funds are not pre-allocated to certain sum.

Like Monero, Zcash, Historia, Stellar, dgb

Politics is often considered a dirty game, and the most exhausting thing about our politics today is the politicians’ extensive use of “alternative facts” on key issues that directly or indirectly contradict real facts.

Politics is often considered a dirty game, and the most exhausting thing about our politics today is the politicians’ extensive use of “alternative facts” on key issues that directly or indirectly contradict real facts.

The obsession with “shaping the narrative” has seen mainstream politicians easily use refutable statements to promote their political agenda. For example, during his 2016 campaigns, Donald Trump and his campaign staff repeatedly made false claims about the U.S homicide rate being at its highest in several decades. Ahead of the Brexit referendum, the pro-Brexit campaign falsely claimed that the EU membership cost the UK over 350 million British pounds per week and that this money could be saved in the case of exit from the European Union.

Crafting stories to serve political purposes is dangerous even if it is increasingly becoming part of modern politics. The use of alternative facts is not only obscuring the truth, but it also puts our democracy in jeopardy by leaving the citizens confused and misinformed. This is not helped either by the fact that we live in an era where confirmation bias dominates the way people consume information today. Social media creates an echo chamber where individuals only hear stories that seem true to them, regardless of the source.

In an effort to combat distortion of facts, mainstream media and independent organizations have increasingly invested in checking politicians’ claims and provided rebuttals. For instance, a recent report focused on fact checking successfully identified and corrected several misleading statements made by Marine Le Pen about European refugee crisis during the 2017 French presidential election campaign.

While such fact-checking efforts are commendable, they are not effective in correcting the positive effects of the politicians’ agenda. One possible explanation is that electorates are unwilling to trust mainstream media due to unbiased reporting and declining journalistic standards. The effect of this is that if citizens are more confident in the figures provided by politicians than the media they would rationally shift their prior beliefs towards alternative facts away from the truth provided by the fact checkers. This, in turn, affects trust in official institutions, knowledge of facts, voting intentions and individual positions on key policy.

Alternative facts are simply lies and we should reject their use in politics.  Historia believes in pressing for the truth and keeping citizens well informed about current events and history. In order to achieve this goal, Historia has built a blockchain-based platform for recording and preserving accurate accounts of history and facts to prevent perversion and distortion.  

Historia blockchain solution

The Historia blockchain solves the problem of alternative facts by providing a secure immutable and decentralized database for recording and validating facts and historical events in real-time. Therefore, in the case where a politician makes refutable claims using alternative facts, we can easily conduct a fact-checking and validate the truthfulness of such claims on the blockchain.

In addition, Historia ensures trust by utilizing blockchain distributed ledger as an incorruptible source of fact checking instead of mainstream media that is often biased and subject to censorship. It is our hope that by putting historical facts and events on the distributed ledger, we can make a significant contribution towards the fight against fake news, falsehoods, and distortion of facts in politics.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What would you do to recover your losses? on: April 08, 2019, 05:35:20 AM
I think that is like something impossible (or very very hard), I invested some coins in 2018, and now I only have 400USD now (I invested 25K), so only when I get 60X then I recover the loss...

So if I invest Bitcoin/Ethruem, then it is not possible to make it, I can only risk investing Alts, like what I did last days for OCX/RVN/MITH/SHE/TRX/HTA, while I bought at the peak and I lost even more, now only 250USD... Lucky is that I never invest more, or I will lose everything.

So be cautious, please at most use 1/5 of your money on this, and even you lost all, you can still accept...

Sorry, I am not a native English speaker, so please forgive my grammar errors.

Sure, it rised 50% last half month, it is always wise to invest big coins like Bitcoin/Ethereum/Monero/Ripple, you can consider spend 30% on altcoins, some Altcoins are performing great last days, like BRC/Mithril/Trx, some potential projects like Bittorrent/ThunderToken/MedicionChain/Historia etcs. If Bitcoin can stay 5k for a month, a lot of Alts will grow 2X.
