Here is a great interview I pulled off another Bitcoin Forum page.  Blocksafe needs to put more of this out there to sooth the trolls who constantly say Trig is a scam, IMHO.  I am adding more tokens in this pullback, just as I did in the other pull back bagging those tokens for $.50!  The price/volume action witnessed on Bittrex shows very large blocks being accumulated like whales scooping up plankton in the ocean.  They are going to demand a pretty penny when adoptions are announced. This again though is just my MHO.

Kevin Barnes is a military veteran and blockchain developer who saw a problem in nascent “smart gun” technology.

Specifically, this is the disconcerting possibility that government could eventually monitor and control guns remotely. Instead, he hopes to provide an opt-in alternative that would enable gun owners to choose whether they want to make their firearms “smart,” automatically blocking access to unauthorized users.

For example, Blocksafe could be used by police to manage, locate, control, and view activities of their officers’ firearms in real time, 24 hours a day. Firing range instructors could use it to train in safer environments, analyzing shooting patterns and tracking inventory. Any gun owner could use Blocksafe to locate stolen guns, access a real-time count of how many rounds are left in a magazine, and protect themselves from being overpowered.

This solution has received strong interest from blockchain and gun industry leaders, according to Blocksafe, and is currently embarking on a crowdsale to raise a goal of $55,000 USD to build the first phase of this technology.

Interview with Kevin Barnes

Bitcoin.com (BC): What is Blocksafe and what type of blockchain does it use?

Kevin Barnes (KB): Blocksafe is a p2p network that provides the infrastructure for smart devices for firearms. Blocksafe uses lisk +  bittorrent + telehash.

BC: Why not the Bitcoin blockchain?

KB: The [Bitcoin] blockchain is not built to be the foundation of an IOT decentralized solution. We are choosing a foundation that we feel has the features and focus needed as a foundation for an IOT network.

Smart gun lockBC: Can you give an example of how this can be used for a gun smartlock?

KB: When setting up a smart device initially, Bluetooth authentication is setup via the Blocksafe app by the owner and all authorized users are added by the device owner and stored on the local ledger. Authentication method varies upon the device and manufacturer.

Let’s say your smart magazine has one round left and has an authentication feature that enabled rounds to be fed to the chamber. The round count and authentication attempt parameters are stored in real time along with other data that the device owner chooses to be recorded such as date, time, and location using encryption onto the local ledger of the device.

So if the authentication is successful, the magazine would allow the last round to be chambered for the user to discharge the weapon. The authentication attempt and all related activities that the device owner chooses to have recorded are stored on the local ledger.

We must have infrastructure in place dedicated for successful implementation of smart gun technology.
When the device has internet access the ledger is synced to the network and the device owner receives notifications such as push, sms, or email as configured by the owner’s chosen device settings. The data is encrypted via a data key on the network. So, only those who have the data kept from the device owner will be able to view the actual device activity.

BC: Would this system store personal information or would it be pseudonymous and used for messaging, data storage only?

KB: Just pseudonymous and used for messaging, data storage only. This information is encrypted and only available for viewing by those who have the device data key.

BC: Guns are 15 times more likely to be used against a gun owner or accidentally discharged (often by children) than used in self-defense. Would Blocksafe eliminate this risk and would you support making this type of system mandatory for all gun owners?

KB: Yes, the Blocksafe network would greatly reduce those risks, though I do not support making the usage of the network or smart device mandatory. We feel that gun owners globally should be able to keep the liberty to use their firearm as they wish and should not be mandated to use a product or service.

gun controlBC: Regulations are being fiercely debated in America following the Orlando shooting. Do you see “smart gun” technology as a potential solution?

KB: Yes, we see smart gun technology as part of a combined solution. I see an infrastructure to support smart gun technology as the first step to reducing the need of regulations in various areas in the world. We have phone lines in place to create the phone system, faxes, and dial-up internet. We also have towers as an infrastructure for cellular phones. We must have infrastructure in place dedicated for successful implementation of smart gun technology.

BC: What other smart gun technologies are emerging today? What makes your blockchain solution better?

KB: Most technologies we have seen have no real infrastructure behind it keeping them limited in some ways and higher risk in others. Higher rate of hacking or electrical interference is a major issue.

“Smart gun devices are going to be a huge market as gun owners realize they have the liberty to make choices to anonymously make their firearms smart when they want them to be.”
A blockchain network will enable data to be stored and transmitted securely without any centralized risk, downtime, and provide complete privacy. We believe that creating a network for smart devices and firearm manufacturers is an essential first step to provide the infrastructure for these other hardware technologies to improve their product and service to gun owners.

Smart gun devices are going to be a huge market as gun owners realize they have the liberty to make choices to anonymously make their firearms smart when they want them to be. Phones went through a similar evolution as they became smarter. We did not see mandates to use cell phones. Free market and liberty gave customers choices and that is what this is about.

BC: What kind of feedback have you received from gun industry leaders, legislators etc.?

KB: We have received great interest in the network once it is understood. Like anything new, understanding it is the biggest hurdle.

[Blocksafe is] an alternative [against] a centralized, hackable network mandated […] used as a Trojan horse to compromise our human right of defense.
Many fear governments around the globe are itching for smart gun technologies to take over our means of self defense. In essence that is why we are building this network: to create an alternative as quickly as possible to not only enjoy our liberty to use smart gun technology for its huge benefits, but also keep from having a centralized, hackable network mandated and used as a Trojan horse to compromise our human right of defense, while reducing gang violence and saving lives.

FBI PhoneBC: Wouldn’t law enforcement seek to gain access to this database as we’ve seen with Apple?

KB: Being that data transmitted and stored is encrypted via a data key, law enforcement would need owner consent to view encrypted data. No personal information is requested, needed or stored by the network. The data key is multilayer encrypted including a quantum encrypted wrapper on phone and device ledgers, so it will not be easy to gain access to the device’s activities. The device records only information the owner chooses. Since devices can be moved from one firearm to another, it only makes sense for the network to record device activities and that is it.

Now, if a gun manufacturer develops a firearm with built-in Blocksafe support, then the purchasing gun owner will be in control of what information is recorded to the ledger. It is up to the owner to abide by any laws that may arise in the future in their jurisdiction relating to mandatory data inclusion.

I would definitely get in again if there was a major pullback but I do not see one coming.

It is not a bad project to be in and  the developers seem quiet busy.

This one seems like a very good idea using Blockchain Technology.

Why would you require a major pullback?

It look likes the first base or really support level was established $.45 - $.55
This $.60ish to $.80 range looks like its pretty sustainable especially with the volume over the past three days, (16M tokens or half the supply), so wouldn't we like to know how much of that is Hodl minded investors?  That's my mindset at least, but I bet others are as well.  $22 M market cap at the moment and when you are discussing how huge an impact this can make in just the civilian sector of firearms..... what is the true float now?  It may well be a pretty small one, making the next run up pretty explosive without sellers to be had?

For instance if Trig goes to just $2.62 its market cap would be #64 tonight.  $3.93 moves it to #49, etc.  My point being there is not a ton of supply in relation to other coins/tokens.

I've been going thru coinmarketcap.com and just looking at each coin/token's website. Which ones have a real life application as this one?  There is surely coins for monetary transactions, some gaming tokens, gambling ventures.. EDG looks interesting (btw), GNO has a purpose, QTUM (found that researching Trig actually), and Counter Party as well... SALT has a real application,  OMISEGO is a real company, Walton, BAT, etc., have distinct purposes that seems to assure adoption.

Again, I see this primarily adopted first by police forces, Military/Private Operators, and then for civilians to use on their Concealed Carry Weapons.  This adoption can play out over years, and which current tokens can match Trig?

Wonder how many Funder folks hopped on board as well?

I have got to meet this Kevin Barnes.  He is my kind of High Tech Redneck LOL!  I found this video doing more research and it fills in a lot of the gaps about Trig I did not know before.  It is built with Counter Party, but I did not know the Lisk side of this.... watching this video puts that piece of the puzzle together on how it is going to work.  Now I thought I had read before that QTUM was involved in Trig development.  If some one knows about that please clarify.  What is amazing is that this video only has 342 views?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1l3gNyP2qs

Another question, if Trig hits adoption (as I hope), how can this also benefit Counter Party, and Lisk?  Who can pull together that angle for me?  My Thanks in Advance, Hodl & can we please dispense with the whining on Trig's price?  Your mother would also like to know when you are going to clean up your room LOL! PS note the price of BTC when this video was made!

Doing a little more research on Blocksafe tonight.  If you have been to their website  http://smartguns.com/

Check out the resume of this Team Member  https://www.linkedin.com/in/michaelterpin/

This gentleman formed a company in 1994 by listening to reporters complaints about having to retype market information to be published in their respective papers.  He ends up selling it for $35 million & which was later bought by NASDAQ.  Sounds like an innovator and risk taker to me.

So what does he currently do?:

CEO
Terpin Communications, Inc.
January 1990 – Present (27 years 11 months)

Terpin Communications (previously The Terpin Group, prior to 2001 sale to Morgen-Walke/Lighthouse, now Financial Dynamics) was one of the first PR firms to specialize in new media and convergence PR, going back to the earliest days of multimedia and the Web. Our early success stories included the launch of the Motley Fool, America Online Greenhouse and a little three-person company called Earthlink.

The Firm is now a global PR firm specializing in emerging technologies and market entry, with a solid portfolio of Web 2.0 and enterprise software clients. We are interested in finding the next AOLs and EarthLinks and helping them get to the next level (sometimes this involves us investing in them, typically in the form of a bridge loan for services - we were written up in an Inc. Magazine cover story for this successful strategy).

Today, Terpin Communications, Inc., is a sister holding company alongside Transform Group, which is our primary brand.


Something just makes me think this guy might just know what a winner looks like.... you know just a hunch?  Go and check it out for yourself, and as his street cred in crypto is (understatement), pretty dag gone strong....

oh well, look, literally a week ago you jumped 300% up, now again at the level from which you jumped, something seems to me lower in the same, we will not fall, and if we do it a little ... although this is a crypt, anything can be.
