Decred Journal — June 2019 https://medium.com/decred/decred-journal-june-2019-81c78144013c

June’s highlights:

Budgets approved on Politeia for Ditto (PR), the bug bounty program, open source research, decentralized exchange specification and block header commitments consensus change that will boost SPV security and pave the way for other improvements.

iOS Wallet v1.0 released on the App Store on Jul 10.

dcrdata v5.0 released. New charts and data visualizations for exploring Decred data, improvements in performance, security and architecture.

Smoother experience for contractors submitting invoices with bug fixes and UI improvements in the Contractor Management System (CMS) — an important milestone in rolling out the DCC and financial reporting.

This month saw some high profile podcast appearances and an increase in Decred mentions in articles and on social media. The DecredChallenge is gaining some traction and encouraging people to look into Decred, understand it, and discuss whether it deserves a more prominent position in the cryptocurrency space.

Who are the respectful peeps who say negative things about decred? I hope you don't mean gemblitz  Tongue
btw, it was never a pump and dump no matter what he says above.

It's worth staking if you have the minimum amount. I stake on my own node but if you don't want to go through the trouble you have to research how to actually stake. This is not a typical staking coin.

Besides bitcoin, this is the only other long-term hold position I have. Given the circumstances in the market, the performance is actually not that disappointing

pump and dump by PAID PROMOTERS is one thing... this doxxing and phishing scam via DECRED & BITTREX is another more sinister plot whereas your info gets sold to darkweb. :\  hopefully the SEC does some consumer protection Americans should not be subjected to these kind of online phishing attempts.

gembitz is our resident troll. Nothing he says is true, literally nothing. Here's a link where he admits he messed up on his own account and missed the airdrop: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1290358.msg22659558#msg22659558

Decred is 1 of the 2 coins I'm hodling. I keep all of mine staked. It's easy passive income, and no one can take it away from you. Plus, now that Politeia is live, you could use that stake ticket to vote:

"My thesis for Decred isn't so much as a Bitcoin destroyer, but it is something that can destroy Litecoin, XRP, Bitcoin Cash and frankly all the other trash that exists in the top 10 on coinmarketcap. I think Decred is massively fundamentally undervalued..."
Murad Mahmudov at 25 minutes


"I think the Treasury is a very very wise decision to have been implemented for the long term. I think it has a lot of potential, if I am right about my Decred thesis there's going to be a tremendously large sum of money under the guidance of the Decred community..."

decred = commies!


Commies? But China, being communists, didn't stop them from being one of the richest, most powerful nations in the world that would take over the USA's slot.

What do you have against the Chinese? Cool

they can have their decred shitcoin ~ we don't need people who choose to live under a rock! :\ pfft


Who lives under a rock? China has a better/larger economy than most countries in world. It will also become the most advanced countries, technologically by 2050. If someone is living under a rock, it's you. Cool

like i said ===> communists.  Roll Eyes  meh


According to your opinion. But your country/"free world" might be more dependent on a country run by communists than you know, and that's the truth.

But we are off-topic, back to Decred. Cool


CENSORSHIP WILL NOT HELP YOU

===> AIRDROP OF ALL YOUR TAXABLE ASSETS WHEN ?

Nice article written by Jake Yocom-Piatt about Libra


https://www.ccn.com/news/libra-friend-or-foe/2019/07/21/

Libra: Friend or Foe? Worst Case Scenario Post-Congressional Hearings

Facebook is in the hot seat this week, as Congress asks burning questions about the company’s Libra “cryptocurrency.” I use quotes, because in the purest sense, a cryptocurrency is decentralized, trustless, and permissionless. Libra is none of these. Instead, Libra is more likely to become a private currency that enables a turnkey totalitarian state with all-encompassing surveillance.

While the Libra Association is purportedly an independent, decentralized entity that governs the project, Libra’s consensus system is so corporate it’s offensive to call it a true cryptocurrency. It’s effectively a meta-corporate entity, with the likes of Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Uber and Spotify at the helm.

Facebook & a fundamental lack of trust

As far as being “trustless,” why wouldn’t you trust Facebook? The company was recently fined $5 billion for breaching consumer privacy. Now you want to trust them with your personal data AND finances?

The term “permissionless” in the context of blockchains means that no centralized gatekeeper can determine whether or not you can participate in the network. The 27 other founding members of Libra paid a pretty penny to be validator nodes in the network—an initial minimum investment of $10 million worth of Libra Investment Tokens issued by the Association—and had to meet very specific criteria laid out by Facebook. These entities form an elite and centralized group of gatekeepers who will control permission on the Libra network. This is just another central planning committee.

Now Facebook can deplatform you AND your bank account, which is a super powerful tool for whomever is controlling it—whether that is big tech or government, or perhaps both. Considering Facebook’s pattern of selectively deplatforming users on the basis of their political beliefs or similar, tightly integrating a payment system with Facebook’s existing social media platform is an extremely dangerous proposition.

Worst case scenario: big tech and government in cahoots

Corporatism, the control of a state or organization by large interest groups, sounds like an accurate description for Libra and an evolutionary step towards fascism. Libra espouses the very altruistic mission of empowering billions, especially the unbanked, with a simple, global currency and financial infrastructure. I retain a healthy amount of skepticism.

The real question is who’s in the driver’s seat—big tech or government? In this scenario, I see the answer as both. While this looks like a battle between legislators and big tech, the reality is that they could wind-up collaborating to create a competitor to Bitcoin that is government-regulated. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that news outlets are asking whether Bitcoin was created by a serial criminal concurrent with the discussion of Libra.

Libra could serve the surveillance state



The US government would likely see Libra as an opportunity to surveil the public more thoroughly, similar to how WeChat has been operating in China. Libra claims it will keep transactional data separate from social data, but Facebook’s track record and core competency of strip mining users’ privacy makes that claim implausible. This system sets up a total reversal of the essence of blockchain: instead of a new kind of banking that returns the power to the people, Libra sets up the ultimate surveillance state.

The social credit system in China, where every single action you take is tracked by the government and rolled into a social credit score is exactly where Libra is headed. Libra would be one more step on the road to a totalitarian state, one in which the government sees your every move and tracks your every dollar. It’s easy for the government to act like a neutral or even antagonistic party questioning Libra in Senate hearings.

Behind this veil of congressional mistrust of big tech lies enough powerful interest groups and venture capitalists to benefit from a symbiotic relationship, whereby they acquire and monetize data that allows the government insight into every citizen’s lifelog. Furthermore, the possibility of code-based, behind the scenes monitoring via cameras and microphones embedded into every citizen’s hip pocket render the wiretapping and telecom scandals of the past tame in comparison. Ultimately, once the technology is widely adopted, the government stands to reap the benefits.

Is the tar and feathering of Bitcoin and congressional outrage a cover for the Trojan horse public-private conspiracy to install a renewed version of the US Defense Department’s lifelog, an effort canceled in 2004 (the same year Facebook was founded) to build a database tracking a person’s entire existence? Only time will tell.
