What you write does not apply here. BSV is independent of BTC. BSV offers low transaction costs and proves its ability to evolve, its ecosystem facilitates fast and cheap payments all over the world. Several companies and their models are beginning to emerge on BSV, which has restored not only the protocol, but much of the original Bitcoin enthusiasm. Find out more and do your own research to understand where things are heading. Many of the goals are in progress and others are already being deployed. Innovations are being built there, it's worth a look.

Hello to you! As a technology enthusiast I love to share knowledge and connect people's knowledge. I am a supporter of the useful BitCoin 🐉 BSV

Wink WHY ATTEND COINGEEK CONFERENCES?


Quote
COMPANIES
Bitcoin SV is the only blockchain protocol that can evolve, making it perfect for companies looking to take advantage of its superior technology and leapfrog their competitors.

CoinGeek conferences are fine-tuned to provide maximum value to attendees. This means a judicious mix of professional presentations by authoritative and well-rehearsed speakers, as well as many opportunities for informal interaction between sessions and at the end of the day.

We guarantee that you will not only learn a lot about Bitcoin, but that you will also meet people who will be useful to you as experts, contacts and potential partners in the future.

And you will also have a great time. The food and drinks are excellent and copious (ask anyone who has attended previous events) and there is a spectacular after-party at the end, which ... well, a little defies description, but it's much more than your usual corporate knees.




THE DEVELOPERS
Whether you are already immersed in the world of Bitcoin SV or are a novice, the Bitcoin conference will give you the opportunity to hear from the leading developers working in the field, whether they are producing applications or refining the protocol itself.

With Bitcoin Script Engineer emerging as one of the most sought-after jobs on the block, keeping up with the technology is a challenge for the most knowledgeable as there is so much work in progress in the ecosystem right now. But our Bitcoin conference will give you useful insights and the opportunity to explore areas of interest informally with the contacts you make.

Bitcoin SV occupies a unique position as the only global micropayment network enabling developers to benefit from the creation of new and innovative business models at the microtransaction level. Participants can learn how other developers are exploiting BSV's superpowers and turning them immediately into revenue-generating businesses.

The BSV Hackathon is a magnet for developers, offering an open competition for newcomers to submit ideas and receive feedback and recognition. Some lucky winners will also receive prizes from a prize pool of US$100,000 (paid in BSV, of course). Many former Hackathon winners are now successful BSV start-ups, influencing the whole ecosystem in new directions.




INVESTORS
Bitcoin SV is a magnet for business ideas, many of which are being developed by growing start-ups. But there is much more to wait to hire staff and realise the visions of their founders.

The success of the Bitcoin Association's Pitch Day competition is a testament to the dynamic and growing field of BSV entrepreneurship. Many companies with enormous potential do not need massive injections of cash to take the next step, making the BSV ecosystem the ideal place for investors to find their next project.

One of the advantages of relying on the BSV blockchain is that you are using a central service that already exists. Leveraging the blockchain to provide a viable business idea is a challenge that a new generation of start-up founders has enthusiastically taken up.

While adding a BSV element to already successful business models online offers many ideas, the most interesting opportunities may come from entrepreneurs whose vision for business has only become possible thanks to BSV's unique scale-up and micro-transaction capabilities.

If you want to help them take their ideas forward, they will want to meet you at the conference.




MEDIA
Media coverage of Bitcoin SV is continually increasing as new players become involved and the ecosystem is setting new records for the largest blocks extracted and the number of daily Bitcoin transactions.

This Bitcoin conference is an ideal opportunity to learn what makes BSV truly unique as the only blockbuster that is true to Satoshi Nakamoto's Bitcoin white paper.

The media facilities will allow you to report, record and film with the participants, who are generally happy to spend time with the media during the conference, amplify and explain their presentations or talk about future plans for their companies.

Our efficient conference arrangements facilitate and simplify the planning and execution of your media requests. You'll be amazed at how productively you can use your time.




REGULATION
Members of the Bitcoin SV world have been proactive in contacting regulators to inform them of their work and to ensure that regulation is built into the DNA of their business ideas.

So BSV has become the logical choice for large and small businesses alike. The conference will provide an opportunity for regulators to learn about and discuss issues of legal or regulatory concern with interested participants.



MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS
As technology giants make the news because of problems with their advertising systems, there is a clear need for new ideas to improve the online business models of advertisers and content creators.

Fortunately, Bitcoin SV has already led to innovation in both these areas. Advertising using blockchain technology opens the way to more direct control by the advertiser, while BSV blockchain allows content creators new ways to publish their content and earn through micropayments.

BSV-powered businesses such as Streamanity (video streaming), Bit.sv (digital content curation) and TonicPow (online advertising) are growing rapidly and will be of interest to anyone who needs to keep up with developments in the marketing and communications sector.




ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
AI is a vast and varied field, but at the heart of data collection and use. And it is one of the main functionalities of the BSV blockchain.

With its potential for massive scalability, fast processing and extremely low transaction costs, BSV is the obvious choice for AI projects that wish to use blockchain technologies.

IoT is a particular focus of some of BSV's most innovative startups. Data can be collected from a wide range of sensors, for example in an agricultural project, and the information safely stored on the blockchain, to be analysed for results of a type that would never have been available before.

The Bitcoin conference offers a unique opportunity to learn more about these technologies and to meet the engineers and entrepreneurs who are pioneers in this rapidly developing field.



BLOCKCHAIN AS A SERVICE
Private blockchains have long boasted blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) solutions - usually as an alternative to commercial database products. But the advantages over conventional databases have been difficult to realise.

As a public blockchain, Bitcoin SV offers a credible alternative that overcomes many of the weaknesses of private blockchains. Its secure and legally compliant approach combines the reliability demanded by business customers with low transaction costs and fast processing.

With a protocol based on Bitcoin's original design that has now been "set in stone", BSV is not subject to the unpredictability of other blockchains, whether run by large corporations or blockchain companies.

Large companies are placing more and more trust in BSV. The conference offers a unique opportunity both to learn more about the overall situation in BaaS and to make contacts that will help participants to explore customised solutions for the needs of their companies.




CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
The Bitcoin SV blockchain offers privacy and security features built into its technology. The more you learn about the BSV blockchain, the more you will understand that these features are as integral to its design as the concept of digital currency.

The design of the protocol combines public accountability - since everyone can access the blockchain - with strong security features. Confidentiality is guaranteed by pseudonymity, which allows accountability without compromising personal information.

Our Bitcoin conference offers a unique opportunity to address these issues, with presentations providing clear exposure of the scene, combined with opportunities for access to experts in networking sessions".

STABILITY
Bitcoin SV is currently the only block chain protocol that follows the original design and vision of Bitcoin by creator Satoshi Nakamoto. For Bitcoin to work both as a peer-to-peer electronic payment system and as the global data registry for businesses, it must be stable, scalable, secure and support secure instant transactions. Bitcoin SV is the only block chain that meets all these criteria.

Continuous and unproven changes to the underlying protocol can be detrimental to the technical and economic structure of the data.
network. The Bitcoin SV block chain provides stability, with a locked base of protocol, facilitating innovation at the top of a
base.

SCALABILITY
While many chain protocols struggle with slow processing times and transaction costs, Bitcoin SV enables
a scaling up that meets business demand. Already, the Bitcoin SV network is processing 2,800 txs/sec, with a target of 50,000 txs/sec by 2021. With massive scale-up, the median transaction is very low - only 1/100 of a US cent.

SECURITY
One of the characteristics of the original. The Bitcoin protocol is its resistance to attacks. The Bitcoin SV project focused on a rigorous quality assurance process, hiring an industry-leading security audit firm to audit and conduct end-to-end security assessments of the Bitcoin SV node software.

SECURE AND INSTANT TRANSACTIONS
Instant transactions are the key to unlocking the merchant market for Bitcoin payments. The Merchant API allows merchants and others to apply for companies accepting Bitcoin transactions to receive the assurance they need to be able to accept on a zero confirmation basis.


In summary: BSV is a multifaceted tool that offers low transaction costs and proves its ability to evolve, its ecosystem facilitates fast and cheap payments anywhere in the world. Several companies and their models are beginning to emerge on BSV, which has restored not only the protocol, but much of the original Bitcoin enthusiasm. Find out more and do your own research to understand where things are heading. Many of the goals are in progress and others are already being deployed. Innovations are being built there, it's worth a look.

For example, what are the differences of being able to work on a stable, secure and unlimited protocol with free training.

CoinGeek Re-Live - Day 1 https://youtu.be/FAEoXeN0b8M

The long awaited event arrived as CoinGeek Live 2020 was produced. The largest event to date in the Bitcoin industry brings together developers, startup founders and Bitcoin enthusiasts to celebrate the progress made so far and chart the future together.

“one world chain.” It’s the notion that Bitcoin is a new network protocol that can rival or even replace today’s internet, with a global ledger of truth that can verify and timestamp when events happened—something today’s internet cannot do in a reliable way!





Quote


This CoinGeek conference was always going to be different. It is being broadcast live from New York and London studios, with guests appearing from far and wide: Johannesburg, Zurich, San Francisco, Tel Aviv, Edinburgh and Singapore, to name but a few. More like a TV show than previous conferences, it was slick but intelligent—somewhere between a technology seminar and the Eurovision Song Contest.

Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen was our expert MC, using his New York platform to “start spreading the news” about how far Bitcoin SV has come since the previous conference. You may remember that London jamboree as being from another era but it was only back in February. It’s been an eventful six months—in the world of Bitcoin SV and beyond.

Mr Nguyen welcomed those from the Bitcoin SV community and also others working on blockchain projects outside the Bitcoin world. We want to engage in a dialog with the entire technology industry, he said, sharing the idea of a network that scales, offers more access, and more interoperability.


There are over 5,000 blockchain ledger projects in the world today, Nguyen added. This is because people simply didn’t believe in Bitcoin or Satoshi Nakamoto‘s original vision. Even within the Bitcoin community itself, there were many who couldn’t see past Bitcoin as a “digital asset.” They kept its capacity and functionality limited and, as a result, its progress has stagnated.

That changed at the start of 2020 when Bitcoin BSV restored the Bitcoin protocol as described in Satoshi’s 2008 Bitcoin whitepaper. Satoshi described Bitcoin around that time as “a distributed timestamp server—a history of events that is chronological, auditable, and transparent.

“That provides immense business power” Mr Nguyen said.

A fusion of data and money

There are a few steps to educating people about Bitcoin, especially newcomers. The first is that Bitcoin is more than just a new form of money (the common perception out there). “It’s a fusion of data and money,” he said, a way to ascribe monetary value to data, a way to own and monetize that data. Bitcoin is also not looking to replace current monetary system, but the way they’re managed. Bitcoin’s contract and tokenization capabilities can handle any or all of the world’s existing currencies as well as tracking ownership of other assets, managing devices, and computing with on- and off-chain data.

Bitcoin is “the foundational rule set for an entire network,” and is “re-inventing the internet,” he said. It is fast and low-cost, and has incentives that discourage bad behavior. This makes human and machine engagements more honest, since they can be proven right or wrong on one ledger that everyone can trust.

As he has pointed out in previous presentations, the Bitcoin whitepaper mentions “honest” 15 times. Moreover, Bitcoin had the capabilities to do all this in its original iteration.

But to make it work, “you’ve got to scale and you’ve got to scale big.”

Scaling at low cost opens many opportunities

Before 2017, Bitcoin had the capacity to handle only around seven transactions per second. This could never achieve mass adoption, and Nguyen likened it to the original email protocol being limited to seven messages per second worldwide… and deliberately keeping it that way for years.

Even Ethereum, where many disillusioned former Bitcoiners have turned, has scaling problems. Recently its “gas” and transaction fees have hit record highs—and you can’t have a network designed for tokenization and contracts executing at scale with those sorts of costs. Bitcoin, on the other hand, had a median transaction fee of 1/100 of a U.S. cent “and we think that’s too high.” Bitcoin currently processes over 2,800 transactions per second on its mainnet, and could hit 50,000 in the near future. The Teranode enterprise-tier protocol is looking to 1TB transaction blocks, all while keeping fees low.

Bitcoin offers scalable solutions for health care, clinical research, esports and gaming, supply chains, casinos, social media, financial service, and even “regtech” (regulatory technology). It breaks down data silos that prevent reliable information being shared between platforms but putting everything on one base ledger and accessible in real-time.

Bitcoin, he stressed again, is the opposite of anti-government. It promotes honesty, openness and efficiency, and could easily be a better internet.

“You’ll see many use cases emerging,” Nguyen said near the conclusion, inviting attendees online to “see this bigger vision.” The next few days will offer plenty of those, many of which are ready or almost ready for release. Bitcoin works now, it will work even better in the future—and this has been Satoshi’s vision from the start.

Steve Shadders: Satoshi’s P2P Vision for Bitcoin is here at last

Peer-to-peer transactions were promised in the original Bitcoin plan but remain the key “missing piece” of the network, said Steve Shadders, nChain CTO and technical director of the Bitcoin SV Node project. That’s all about to change with “SPV Channels”—a new way for Bitcoin users to conduct secure P2P transactions directly between devices and still broadcast them to the network, while avoiding security pitfalls like double-spends.

Shadders continued his tradition as one of the first speakers at any CoinGeek event, giving the Technical Update at CoinGeek Live, which started in New York City and London today. He said the term “P2P transactions” was often misused, with many assuming this is the way Bitcoin transactions already happened (thanks to the white paper title).

His presentation announced three new packages: SPV Channels v1.0.0, mAPI (formerly Merchant API) v1.2, and Bitcoin SV v1.0.6, titled “Push”. All are currently in beta, Shadders noted, but said they were being released so developers would be able to “start playing with them” immediately.

P2P transactions on Bitcoin at last

The original version of Bitcoin (which Shadders described as “alpha” and “a prototype”) had the ability to send transactions to IP addresses (known as IP2IP) which was incomplete at the time and never developed properly. For this to work, a sender had to know the receiver’s IP address—something that’s usually not known and is hard to discover. A second problem: how exactly to connect to that IP and structure the transaction and manage to broadcast it to the network for confirmation, remained a problem for years.

If users are offline, or if communication is directly between devices, how can they still be broadcast to the network and transaction processors in a secure way? How could receivers be confident the sender wasn’t attempting a double-spend (sending the same coins in two different transactions) either intentionally or accidentally if a transaction wasn’t broadcast till some later point?

The SPV Channels method, as the name suggests, works hand in hand with simplified payment verification (SPV) and is an essential component in Bitcoin scaling. It’s an end-to-end messaging “nano-service” with push capability that operates over a private channel that requires only outbound connections. It’s similar to functionality in existing online messaging platforms, and Shadders likened it to IMAP email—you’ll still get all your messages even if you’re offline for a while.



He gave the following use case example. A customer and merchant find each other’s details via Paymail service discovery. The merchant then locates a processor’s (miner) mAPI via MinerID and uses it to request a fee quote. The merchant constructs a transaction and submits it to the customer, and the customer sends the transaction. The merchant then sends it to a processor via mAPI, and registers an SPV Channel URL for callbacks. This part of the process is where any double-spend attempt is detected, and the merchant is notified immediately (if online). Once the transaction is processed in a block, the processor/miner sends a merkle proof record to the SPV Channel, which the merchant keeps in their database. The merchant has the option to send that proof to the customer as well.

Shadders gave a live demonstration of SPV Channels on-stage, including a double-spend attempt which was instantly detected and flagged.

Features in all three new software releases all contribute to realizing Satoshi Nakamoto‘s original desire for a peer-to-peer transaction network, and assist with scaling. Bitcoin SV is the only blockchain transaction network with the ability to do this, while remaining legally compliant yet open, and able to scale massively at minimal cost.

Transmira’s Omniscape harnesses AR Bitcoin’s ‘greater power’ for Xperiential Reality


On September 30, Transmira Inc. founder and CEO Robert Rice took the virtual stage at CoinGeek Live 2020. Rice’s presentation, “XR (Experiential Reality) Applications: Greater Power with Bitcoin SV,” explored XR—the seamless blend of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)—and the possibilities it could create and has created, thanks to the work being done by Transmira’s Omniscape team.

On Omniscape, AR/VR experiences become business transactions, branding opportunities, and loyalty points for consumers.



Omniscape works through an app on your phone that gives the end-user a similar experience as Pokemon Go; except instead of catching pokemon, you “catch” 3D items that are offered by brands that can be redeemed for money or a discount on goods and services.


If you are looking to start using Omniscape today then you are in luck. The Transmira team has partnered with the CoinGeek Live to give conference viewers the opportunity to earn a bit of Bitcoin SV as well as vote for the hackathon winner through Omniscape.

“We built an app for the conference that will allow people to vote on the hackathon, answer some daily trivia questions about the presentations, and the highlight is an AR experience with 3D logos for each of the gold sponsors,” said Rice. “If you click on the logos, they convert into a BSV deposit into your linked BSV wallet. The amounts per object are somewhat randomized and will range from a few cents to several dollars, with multiple drops every day through the duration of the conference. Users will need to link their BSV wallet to the app using their handle.

As far as we know, this is the first time ever that 3D objects in AR are directly linked to digital currency, and a near-instant deposit into a wallet (all on-chain). It is a pretty simple experience, but the implications are huge and probably the big news item here I think. These 3D objects could just as easily be a pair of 3D Nike’s that can be collected and then redeemed at the mall for a discount on or a free pair of shoes (or any other product or special offer).”

Omniscape has the potential to change the game when it comes to advertising and marketing. With Omniscape, individuals and businesses can buy digital real estate on which they can create 3D objects that others can collect and redeem at businesses or that could simply serve as advertisements. Seeing that Pokemon Go was a hit and there was not even a monetary aspect to the game, giving brands and individuals the opportunity to offer their customers discounts and rewards through an AR/VR experience can have a significant impact on a business’s bottom line.

Craig Wright at CoinGeek Live: ‘We want to validate the existence of a computation’


Dr. Craig S. Wright took the stage at the CoinGeek Live London studio on September 30, and gave a presentation about “Outsourced Computation on Bitcoin: How One World Blockchain Powers a New Future for Computing & Cloud System.”

Dr. Wright’s presentation addressed the efficiency of node operators and a few of the many things that are possible when nodes are operating efficiently. He also explained why Ethereum’s computational validation system is inefficient. 

“We don’t want miners doing everything, we don’t want to be Ethereum,” said Dr. Wright.





The problem with Ethereum is that every node runs the computation itself to determine whether or not the computation at hand is valid. However, this is not an efficient system. “It is not about the machines,” said Dr. Wright, “it is about the outcome. We want to validate the existence of a computation, not have every single node re-do the computation to say, yes this is true and valid.”

Fortunately, Bitcoin already does this.

“[We] set up a system where we incentivize people for finding solutions and verifying that things work,” said Dr. Wright. “If your tx isn’t valid or others in the chain reject it, then you are not going to get paid.”

There is no need for every node on the network to run the computation to check for validity when we can check if the end result is valid or not. This opens up a world of opportunities when it comes to what nodes can do, or rather, the data they can verify, on the Bitcoin network.





If you missed Dr. Wright’s presentation, we recommend you watch the full video https://youtu.be/FAEoXeN0b8M?t=26771
You will also have three more opportunities to watch Dr. Wright speak at CoinGeek Live 2020.



On October 1s, Dr. Wright will be having a fireside chat with Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen about “The Importance of Bitcoin as a Timestamp Server.” On October 2nd, Dr. Wright will be giving a keynote titled “From the Internet to Bitcoin: The Digital Ledger to Advance the World’s Technology Infrastructure.” And later in the day on October 2nd, Dr. Wright will be participating in the fireside chat, “Can Satoshi Nakamoto Save the Internet & World Money” alongside technology visionary George Gilder.

How Bitcoin SV provides data ledger for Internet of Things

“With data, it’s crap in, crap out,” said Daniel Keane of Predict Ecology, explaining some of the problems he’s found using existing datasets in environmental projects. Some sets are too small, short-term, or not comprehensive enough to work on useful outcomes. Keane spoke together with Paul Chiari (WeatherSV and MetaStreme) and Brendan Lee (Elas) at CoinGeek Live about using the Bitcoin SV (BSV) ledger to store massive amounts of data generated by everything Internet of Things (IoT) from pumps to trees and even cows.

The three spoke via video hookup from Cairns, Australia—a wet tropical city where having the best data on environmental conditions can make a huge difference to the local ecosystem, agriculture, and lifestyle. They explained how each project is unique, yet brought together on the BSV chain with MetaStreme to create longer-term, more useful datasets for future generations to access.

MetaStreme: the link between Big Data and the BSV chain

Chiari spoke first, giving an update on WeatherSV and the newer MetaStreme project—a system that can provides a connection between any kind of Big Data/IoT system and the BSV blockchain. This involves a database/API link for existing databases, data-generating IoT devices or applications, facilitating access to other data sources, and also arranging payment methods where they’re needed.





WeatherSV and MetaStreme have produced and process massive amounts of data on the BSV chain, and has so far been one of its heaviest users. They’ve also been a demonstration of how Big Data projects can negotiate stable fee deals with transaction processors and look for more efficient ways to handle them. MetaStreme devised a process to batch multiple outputs into a single input, something Chiari said reduced daily transactions by 70%.

MetaStreme has worked mainly with environmental and agricultural projects so far, given Chiari’s location and background. However it’s capable of processing data streams on the BSV blockchain for any kind of data-generating project. One demonstration Chiari mentioned was tracking Kanye West’s presidential campaign. At its peak, Kanye2020 was hitting 2,847 transactions per second.

MetaStreme has also recently worked with Eli Afram on a project call “b-vote,” building a blockchain-based transparent voting system.

“BSV is the only protocol that’s up to the task,” he said, however, “unbounded scale means we always stay head of demand.”

Conifers and Cassowaries in Cairns: Predict Ecology

Ecologist Daniel Keane talked about Predict Ecology, a company he founded to measure and track something he called “natural capital”—a term to describe the value of an ecosystem that includes the people, plants and wildlife living in and around it.

“Data streams can demonstrate improved environmental services and function,” he said.

Each impacts the other and it’s necessary to gather as much information about all this as possible. Keane gave the examples of Southern Conifers, a local tree that can live for over a thousand years, and Cassowaries, a large and flightless native bird. His system looks at the trees’ growth rate and the birds’ habitat, measuring impact of external factors like carbon dioxide. Where there is a negative impact, with reliable data there’s more hope of the ecosystem being restored.



By using BSV Predict Ecology can tokenize individual trees and track their condition. A project he’s working on with the Cairns City Council has already audited 30% of all trees in the city (being tropical, Cairns has a lot more trees than most urban centers).

The data Predict Ecology gathers can be validated, referenced, and audited all in the one place. “It’s a combined dataset of natural capital on the BSV ledger,” he said.

As an ecologist, Keane said he really missed having datasets that covered longer periods of time. However, by processing and storing it all on the Bitcoin BSV blockchain, “my grandchildren will be able to use this.”

Gathering data from IoT devices, and sending it back

Another company with ties to MetaStreme and Predict Ecology—but with the ability to handle anything else—is Elas Digital. Founder Brendan Lee made several announcements about the company, which recently acquired Darren Kellenschwiler’s Probatus (Baemail, ProDesk) and is working on a prototype gold-backed currency token with Amleh Gold.



Lee described how Elas handles data from “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices. The first, called Node RED, is a control system management tool that loads software onto the devices and creates a link between then and the BSV chain using tokens and “Bitcoin state machines.”

The demonstration model handled a pump/tank control system. It controls the state of tokens created using input data from each piece of equipment. Using the state machine described above, it then pushes instructions back to the physical equipment to control their function.

Lee also talked about “Moovement,” a food provenance system that tracks a cow’s entire lifespan (and a period of time after it). A GPS-enabled tag attached to the cow’s ear tracks its movement, food, health condition and medical treatments at the farm. After the cow is “processed” and turned into beef, that data is used to generate a report than can then be attached to the product a customer buys in the supermarket. Scanning a QR code gives a full history of the cow’s life—thus guaranteeing more confidence in the food people eat.

Elas is also working on a carbon credit trading system using BSV tokens. “Carbon is a valuable commodity today,”,he said, describing how those with lower outputs can trade their credits on an exchange by selling them to higher CO2 emitters. This is connected to Predict Ecology’s urban trees project, using them as a “carbon abatement resource.” Elas is currently looking at a project in cooperation with the Cairns City Council, and Lee estimated at least $400,000 worth of carbon credits could be traded on the system every year.

Most of the data-generating systems described here cover environmental and political concerns, but the same processes and BSV links could apply to anything that relies on large amounts of data to produce “less crap” outcomes in the future.

IoT devices large and small continue to proliferate. There are 9 billion of them in the world now, and Chiari said estimates predict 13.8 billion by 2024. Something needs to handle all this information, all in one place to avoid silos, and make it auditable. BSV allows all this and can create new economies with data marketplaces—all traceable and auditable, forever.

Re-imagining modern finance on Bitcoin SV blockchain at CoinGeek Live


We live in a world governed by financial systems skewed to benefit the few at the expense of the many. While modern technology is gradually changing these systems, we are still a long way from living in an equitable society. But what if Bitcoin could finally usher in a new era of opportunity and equality? The Bayesian Group has been working on solutions for the broken financial system and they shared their journey during the presentation at CoinGeek Live.

Bayesian’s chief visionary Roy Bernhard took to the virtual stage on Day 2, aided by the senior director of enablement Casandra Cook who was live in the Kennington Studios in London.

The Bayesian Group has been working on “consumer-first, transparent solutions built on Bitcoin SV,” in line with its mission of furthering positive change by transforming the fabric of our global systems.

“We are not waiting for people to tell us what their problems are, we are solving problems people don’t even know they have. We are doing this in a transparent way driven by the right moral compass,” Cook stated.

Cook took the audience through the challenges of the current financial system and why it’s imperative to find a better solution now. They include being inefficient and with high unnecessary overheads, over-complicated, geographically constrained and technologically outdated. This system is also inaccessible, with over 1.7 billion unable to access basic financial services globally.



Bayesian’s solution is the creation of fabriik, a token platform where users can mint and trade tokens on Bitcoin SV. This interconnected system will allow its uses to transform, hold, trade and grow every asset they own. Being protocol agnostic, fabriik allows engineers to focus on building protocols that are suited for anything, from generic to highly-specialized use cases.

Bayesian is also building an interconnected marketplace for the future, bound together by fabriik. The marketplace will bring together a global spot and derivatives exchange, qualified custodians, market makers and global funds. Bernhard invited any interested company to provide competing products and services in the marketplace and carve out its market share.

“Our marketplace comes with a custodian. Have a better one? Amazing. Come and join and win over the market share. Or better yet, partner with us and let’s create custodial solutions the world has never seen before. […] We believe in healthy competition with the same energy we believe in collaboration.”

Bitcoin experts discuss state of BSV tokens


We hear a lot about “tokens on BSV.” But what is a token? What are they used for, and by whom? How should they be made? The idea has been around as long as Bitcoin itself, but hasn’t fulfilled its potential. A panel representing some of the most experienced thinkers in the space discussed these issues at CoinGeek Live this week to give everyone a better idea of how this could happen.

The panel consisted of: moderator Jimmy Nguyen, James Belding of Tokenized, Steve Shadders of nChain, TAAL CEO Jerry Chan, Ryan X. Charles, Omniscape founder Robert Rice, and Stephan Nilsson of UNISOT. Notably, there were several different opinions on how exactly tokenization should happen—yet all agreed BSV was the only blockchain capable of performing the task.

What’s a token, anyway?

To put it (way too) simply, a token is a digital entity representing ownership of something else. It might be a physical asset, or another digital item, or a concept. The important thing is that its ownership and the definition of what the token represents is processed on the blockchain, and that ownership can be traced back to the transaction that originally created it.

Too often, the word “token” has come to mean something traded on an exchange (usually for other digital assets). The rush to create tokens with little utility other than to raise speculative value for their holders tarnished the word somewhat. However, using Bitcoin tokens is a long-discussed concept, from the days of Colored Coins, Mastercoin and CounterParty. There are still a few odd collectibles around today—after all, the blockchain lives forever.

Nilsson said a token was “a smart digital twin.” His company UNISOT isn’t so much in the business of creating tokens but rather solutions for using them. He referred to “behind the scenes” tokens, performing functions that aren’t always visible.



Where are all the BSV tokens?

We hear so much about tokenization on BSV… so where are all the tokens? Nguyen asked. “People are itching for tradeable tokens,” he said, referring to RelayX’s recent launch of the USDC stablecoin.

Shadders said USDC was indeed “bringing something new to BSV,” and that time would tell if it gains adoption. He too talked about tokens working more behind the scenes, performing their tasks mostly in the background, in mundane business processes.



So far, said Belding, most tokens have been “toys” and/or “scammy”. “The value a token provides isn’t necessarily financial.” A tokens mostly tracks other information, he added, and said not to worry because BSV tokenization is only just getting going.

Rice called the idea a “fertile and untapped ground,” adding that he was a newcomer to this particular scene and was thinking of ways data could be manipulated in 3D environments, which Omniscape is busy developing.

Charles said he was just fine with the pace of development on BSV. He doesn’t think it’s moving too slowly at all, and in fact “the rest of the crypto industry is moving very quickly… in the wrong direction.” In any case, he sees his competition as companies like Nasdaq, not other blockchains.

On that note, Shadders said he’d been speaking to a lot of people with existing projects, but who’d been working on Ethereum. They know it can’t scale, he said, and they want what they’re doing to be legal. They see what’s happening in BSV and turn to people there for advice. “Most of them understand what a legal hole they’ve got themselves into,” he said, and that 95% of the tokens out there already have neither value nor utility.

Layer Zero, Layer One, Layer Two

A hot topic in the discussion centered on how tokens should best be constructed. There’s “Layer Zero” (using actual Satoshi units as tokens), “Layer One” (where all token processes are recorded as transactions on the BSV chain) and “Layer Two” (where most of the logic is performed by an external platform, such as Tokenized, and only status changes are logged on-chain as proof).



Belding, not surprisingly since Tokenized is a Layer Two (L2) platform, said there were lots of great designs out there. A token platform needs to be simple and easy to use, as well as flexible.

L2 meant more flexibility, he said. You can add or remove oracles, freeze or confiscate tokens more easily, and perform bug fixes and upgrades whenever necessary. With L1 that’s all possible, but difficult with the level of Bitcoin Script expertise currently available. L1 also presented the problem of what happens when someone’s private key is compromised—you’d need to swap out the keys and reissue every single token related to it, incurring huge costs and inconvenience. L2 is more usable and efficient in the business world, he said.

Chan agreed that L0/L1 tokens could have the same functionality as L2, but it was more complex and required specific skills. He said lower level tokens were more like an operating system or code like HTML, while L2 was “more like a disk, where you store information.”



It would depend on the size of the token’s user base, he said. However, “for true scalability, the only solution we know is Bitcoin UTXOs.” Direct BSV solutions would also always work, whereas L2 solutions relied on the platform provider still existing as long as the tokens were required.

Charles said Bitcoin Script is “the predicate” lying underneath everything else, and that his company (Money Button, which was recently acquired to join Fabriik) remained agnostic on preference.

Most agreed the options weren’t mutually exclusive, and there’s plenty of room for L0, L1 and L2 to interact, with users picking and choosing options depending on their needs. “Let the market decide”, said Shadders, adding that nChain is in the unusual position of having invented L1 tokenization while working more with companies on L2 solutions.

They also agreed there should be some kind of official standard, to guarantee interoperability and to ensure tokens still worked even if a L2 provider went away.

“Sometimes great complexity is required to provide simplicity,” Belding said. For example, there’s governance rules—they’re complicated to write, but need to be easy for users to understand and manage.

At the end of the day, none of this matter if no-one uses BSV so mass adoption should be a priority for anyone building tokenized systems. The panel said it was important for businesses to compete for customers, but cooperate and agree on more fundamental things like standards and promoting benefits. What matters most is the message that tokenization has potential, yet it can only work on Bitcoin BSV. Only the BSV network has the ability to handle the data at scale, and process it all in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

CoinGeek Live 2020 will bring the Bitcoin conference to a close, with a jam-packed schedule of speakers and industry-specific presentations.

The day gets underway with opening remarks from Bitcoin Foundation Founding President Jimmy Nguyen, on Making Bitcoin Easy to Use for Everyone. Nguyen is joined by Alex Agut and Rafa Jiménez Seibane of HandCash to look at how Bitcoin SV (BSV) is to become more usable in payments for mainstream consumer markets.

Nguyen is then joined by John Brackens (Esports Entertainment Group) Adam Kling (Kronoverse) and Rahul Sood (Unikrn) to look at esports and the role of BSV in improving the emerging esports industry thanks to its capacity for mass scale.

Cashless casinos and iGaming is the focus of the session immediately afterwards, where Nguyen is joined by Matthew Dickson, co-founder & CEO of BitBoss; Ed Andrewes, CEO of Resorts Digital Gaming; Stephen Crystal, CEO of SCCG Management; and Eric Bowers, VP of Architecture & Innovation at Boyd Gaming.

The iGaming theme extends into the next session titled ‘iGaming Future: How the Bitcoin Blockchain Can Power More Efficiency and Transparency Across the Industry’s Value Chain’, with a new lineup featuring Phillip Runyan (CEO, Hold Gaming) and Sam Brown (COO, Hero Gaming) among others to discuss how BSV is shaping the future of online gambling.

Intellectual property is next on the agenda with a look at how BSV is securing IP rights, before a live Q&A from Switzerland, focusing on the successes of the country’s Crypto Valley in Zug. This leads in perfectly to the first keynote speech of the day from Dr. Craig S. Wright.

The afternoon looks increasingly at issues of compliance, with a session on KYC on the blockchain, before tools and tips for global compliance for digital currency businesses. This is followed by a session on investing in BSV businesses, before the winners of the 3rd Bitcoin SV Hackathon are announced.

The event culminates in a keynote from economist and writer George Gilder on whether Bitcoin can save the Internet, and the function of money.

CoinGeek Live 2020: Reinventing the Internet with Bitcoin SV

The existing Internet model is broken, this much is clear. Bitcoin SV (BSV) has given developers globally the opportunity to reinvent the Internet and fix this broken model. Three of the most innovative startups leading this revolution took the virtual stage on Day 2 of CoinGeek Live to discuss how BSV has enabled new models for digital media and user content.


Twetch has been one of the most successful BSV startups, attracting interest from tens of thousands of users who want to own their data on social media. Twetch cofounder Billy Rose was one of the panelists, explaining how his startup is taking on Twitter and Facebook.

“We believe we have found the solution to all the Internet’s problems,” Rose said.





He was joined on stage by Luke Rohenaz, the CEO and founder of TonicPow, a startup using Bitcoin SV to transform advertising. TonicPow emerged as the first runner-up in the first Bitcoin SV Hackathon in May last year and has continued to build on this success.





The third panelist was Connor Murray, the CEO of True Reviews, a Bitcoin-powered review system.

One of the biggest flaws in the existing Internet model is how a few companies continue to profit from content created by their users. The three companies have been working to change this, allowing their users to earn from their content.

“A lot of these big companies in Silicon Valley profit from their users’ time and energy. The value that users create for the platforms only benefits a few individuals,” Murray said.

The three platforms are currently challenging legacy companies that have existed for decades in social media, online reviews and advertising. For True Reviews, Murray believes that partnering with these rivals could be beneficial and it would bring in more people to Bitcoin.

For Twetch, Rose doesn’t see any partnership with Twitter, Google, Facebook or other tech giants in the near future.

“Our goal is to flip the Internet inside out. We don’t have much interest in working with them unless it benefits us in some way. […] While Bitcoin and Twetch’s business model would benefit the users of these companies, it would require a complete overhaul for them to integrate Bitcoin,” he explained.

Beyond empowering the users, Bitcoin-powered platforms have also been solving the issue of misinformation. In an era that’s rife with fake news and bot-generated and curated content, Bitcoin is finally providing a solution.

With existing centralized platform, the power of content curation is bestowed upon a central party.  However, with Bitcoin, such authority is decentralized, “allowing the people who think that they have the most important content and the people who give that content attention” to push that content to the top, Rose explained.

The three panelists also shared their plans for the future. Rose revealed that Twetch had just released its desktop app, just weeks after releasing Twetch Chat, an encrypted messaging service. The team is currently working on a mobile app, Rose revealed. True Reviews will also be getting a new look and a new name in the near future, Murray told the audience.

“More people need to realize that this whole Bitcoin movement is a fight for your life, for your digital citizenship, to have ownership over everything you create on the Internet. We have to take back what’s ours on the Internet,” Rose concluded.

BSV Hackathon 2020

There were 3 finalists for the BSV Hackathon 2020 the competitors had different projects all very interesting:


Quote
The first finalist is RepZip, a project that seeks to finally solve the online identity challenge that has been the Achilles heel for Internet applications for the past two decades. Integrating with PayMail, RepZip not only offers digital identities but also verifiable credentials and on-chain contracts.

The second finalist, STOTASK is integrating Bitcoin into machine learning. The platform allows users to earn micropayments in Bitcoin SV for adding information to data tags. This integration of human assistance in machine learning will be critical in the long run as it will allow machines to better understand data classification.

The third finalist, Kyrt allows its users to integrate any application with the Bitcoin blockchain and in doing so, enables the storage, sending and monetizing of this data.

from BSVfan msg: CoinGeek Live was fabulous there have been many announcements of innovations such as:

- Nano payments, which is a variant of IP2IP transactions using SPV channels (a new idea fuelled by nano-services) to generate true P2P transactions that benefit physical merchants by leveraging mAPI for dual-spend protection.

- The launch of the stable USDC tokenised coin within the BSV ecosystem

- The integration of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) an experience similar to Pokemon Go; except that instead of catching Pokémon, you "catch" 3D items that are offered by brands that can be exchanged for money or a discount on goods and services.

- New forms of liquidity through tokenisation, making these tokens available to retail and institutional investors.

- IoT & MetaStreme - The Internet of Things or IoT is the interconnection between the Internet and physical objects, places and environments - a system that can provide a connection between any type of Big Data / IoT system and the BSV blockchain.  Thus Bitcoin SV provides an extremely fluid data register for the Internet of Things.

- iGaming Future, Casinos without Cash, Intellectual Property, Regulatory Regulation, the BSV Hackathon 2020, the new internet to come....

It was fabulous, thanks CoinGeek and everybody!


PS: The NFT collector tokens received from Elas for the participants were a great idea! Thank you Smiley

CoinGeek Live: The Fireside Chat

In 1933, newly inaugurated President Franklin D. Roosevelt began doing periodic “fireside chats” wherein he would take an informal tone with the nation to discuss things that were on his mind. This was an era of great shift, and FDR was a polarizing figure of the progressive movement, so the President felt that it was important for him to address the country directly so that he could clarify his thoughts, perhaps teach a little lesson, but mostly just let the beleaguered nation hear his voice to let them know that he was riding out the storm with them.

The Atlantic called the FDR fireside chats, “[a] revolutionary experiment with a nascent media platform,” which is a fitting comparison to the final segment of day two at CoinGeek LIVE.

Dr. Craig Wright appeared live from London to answer questions and close the day with the challenge to “be strong,” which is a message that resonates extra hard as we think back to years of the Bitcoin Civil War, the victory lap around the Genesis protocol, and the long crawl up the mountain that we have taken together with the Bitcoin experiment.



This fireside chat was a few parts history, and a few parts future. All of it inspiring! But that’s getting a little ahead of things.

Blockchain or a timestamp server?

Jimmy opened up with a question about the word “blockchain,” asking where the concept of the timestamp server came from as it was referenced in the white paper.

Wright elucidated an anecdote about the history of auditing, and the notion that once something had been checked multiple times and verified by trusted parties, that it should be solidified (or hashed) so that it does not ever have to be re-accounted again. Even if a change was to be made, a new timestamp would be created with reference to the previous one so that nothing could be erased, and everything could be verified forever. In Wright’s mind, this feature of Bitcoin would liberate us to focus on the present and the future because the past could no longer be tampered with!

The next problem to solve in Bitcoin was the elimination of the fallibility of trusted parties by a process of competitive proof of work—the cornerstone of Bitcoin. Wright also discussed the double-spending problem starting with bad checks, but being solved by honest nodes and importance of chronological transaction ordering. Most of all, the answer was (is) simplicity. As Wright said in the interview, “simple wins” in regards to the bitcoin protocol as well as anything built atop it.

He continued with a reiteration of what was said on Day 1 about the importance of distilling down terabytes of data into a single hash as a foundational principle which enables SPV, and other aspects of bitcoin’s innate ability to scale on chain. With a chronological timestamp server, the hash can be accounted for cryptographically and by time, which is a crucial metric for sorting.

Malware alert?

Upon Jimmy’s question, Wright mentioned that his first idea for Bitcoin-inspired thinking was as a sort of alert system in the detection of malware. “A canary system,” which would record the alerts across a number of nodes on the network, he said. The idea was ultimately scrapped due to a buy-out, but it sounds like something BitPing could consider resurrecting for their suite of network intelligence tools!



Craig waxed on about the beauty of hashing geolocation data to global shipments and creating an unbreakable chain of custody similar to what we saw with medical and pharmaceutical data presented today, or what UNISOT’s Seafood Chain presented at CoinGeek London. Imagine a world where the seals cannot be broken and we could know exactly the history of everything on earth! It was a simple statement with global implications on the understanding of the value of knowledge.

How does Google make money? 

Not with a single click! But with the aggregation of data that comes from a worldwide volume of clicks. Dr. Wright wrapped up his thoughts by pointing out that the current model of batched data creates silos, but that bitcoin monetizing each individual byte of data allows a much more valuable world to grow out of the ashes of this terrible Bitcoin Civil War (my words, not his.)

And so we return to his challenge to “stay strong.” Thinking back to the BCH trolls during the hash war, or perhaps Hodlnaut or Peter McCormack on on Twitter, or any number of battles he has fought for bitcoin since 2008. Craig wears the wounds of this war on his sleeve, but he took the closing moments of his fireside chat to let us know a few key points about our adversaries in this battle:

“There are a lot of bullies, but bullies are cowards.”

“The best thing you can do is show them that you’re better.”

“They seem important. They’re not.”

His challenge to us all was to ignore the noise, the criticisms and the doubt. Instead, he wants us all to build something great! Motivating words from a motivated man speaking at the end of a day that was filled with inspiring entrepreneurs who didn’t waste their day on Twitter, but instead are pitching or displaying their work to turn Bitcoin into the backbone of the emerging, global data economy.

CoinGeek Live: The Fireside Chat

In 1933, newly inaugurated President Franklin D. Roosevelt began doing periodic “fireside chats” wherein he would take an informal tone with the nation to discuss things that were on his mind. This was an era of great shift, and FDR was a polarizing figure of the progressive movement, so the President felt that it was important for him to address the country directly so that he could clarify his thoughts, perhaps teach a little lesson, but mostly just let the beleaguered nation hear his voice to let them know that he was riding out the storm with them.

The Atlantic called the FDR fireside chats, “[a] revolutionary experiment with a nascent media platform,” which is a fitting comparison to the final segment of day two at CoinGeek LIVE.

Dr. Craig Wright appeared live from London to answer questions [...]  This fireside chat was a few parts history, and a few parts future. All of it inspiring! But that’s getting a little ahead of things.

Franklin D. Roosevelt seized everybody’s gold, and turned the U.S. dollar into a scam by forcing everybody to accept worthless fake money instead of the real thing.

Roosevelt was the biggest booster of the Federal Reserve System since Woodrow Wilson signed the law creating the damn thing.

If you had real money, Roosevelt threatened you with frivolous patents and threats of litigation 10 years in prison, to force you to give your real money to the Federal Reserve in exchange for fake money.  See the below official announcement posted 5 April 1933, with a deadline of Mayday, 1933.  (The below historical images are from Wikipedia; the pertinent historical facts are well-known, undisputed, and easily verifiable.)

I endorse the comparison of Craig S. Wright to Franklin D. Roosevelt!

The following is a real-life allegory pertaining to gold’s new competitor, Bitcoin.

What would you do, if gold were made illegal?

Think it can’t happen?  Well—how many of you are American?  Private individual ownership of gold coins and bars was illegal in the United States for four decades.  “Hoarding” individual wealth in gold was banned from 1 May 1933 until 31 December 1974.  Vast amounts of gold bullion were confiscated from people, who were forced to accept instead the Monopoly Money known as “United States Dollars”.  Numerous individuals were criminally prosecuted for attempting to keep their gold—a crime according to Executive Orders 6102, 6111, 6260, and 6261, and the Gold Reserve Act passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.


U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs law criminalizing gold
30 January 1934

This is fact, not fancy.  Not some weird theory.  This is history:  It actually happened.  And if it happened before, it could happen again.

Well, you might say:  What if nobody knows I have any gold?  That would require that you buy it anonymously.  Store it in secret.  Never brag about it.  Never use it in any way which can be traced.  And take precautions, just in case somebody may be making a list of people who own gold.

Please take care of your Bitcoin privacy—and your privacy with gold, too.

It happened: “CRIMINAL PENALTIES... 10 years imprisonment...” for keeping gold!

CoinGeek Re-Live - Day 1 https://youtu.be/FAEoXeN0b8M

The long awaited event arrived as CoinGeek Live 2020 was produced. The largest event to date in the Bitcoin industry brings together developers, startup founders and Bitcoin enthusiasts to celebrate the progress made so far and chart the future together.

“one world chain.” It’s the notion that Bitcoin is a new network protocol that can rival or even replace today’s internet, with a global ledger of truth that can verify and timestamp when events happened—something today’s internet cannot do in a reliable way!





Quote


This CoinGeek conference was always going to be different. It is being broadcast live from New York and London studios, with guests appearing from far and wide: Johannesburg, Zurich, San Francisco, Tel Aviv, Edinburgh and Singapore, to name but a few. More like a TV show than previous conferences, it was slick but intelligent—somewhere between a technology seminar and the Eurovision Song Contest.

Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen was our expert MC, using his New York platform to “start spreading the news” about how far Bitcoin SV has come since the previous conference. You may remember that London jamboree as being from another era but it was only back in February. It’s been an eventful six months—in the world of Bitcoin SV and beyond.

Mr Nguyen welcomed those from the Bitcoin SV community and also others working on blockchain projects outside the Bitcoin world. We want to engage in a dialog with the entire technology industry, he said, sharing the idea of a network that scales, offers more access, and more interoperability.


There are over 5,000 blockchain ledger projects in the world today, Nguyen added. This is because people simply didn’t believe in Bitcoin or Satoshi Nakamoto‘s original vision. Even within the Bitcoin community itself, there were many who couldn’t see past Bitcoin as a “digital asset.” They kept its capacity and functionality limited and, as a result, its progress has stagnated.

That changed at the start of 2020 when Bitcoin BSV restored the Bitcoin protocol as described in Satoshi’s 2008 Bitcoin whitepaper. Satoshi described Bitcoin around that time as “a distributed timestamp server—a history of events that is chronological, auditable, and transparent.

“That provides immense business power” Mr Nguyen said.

A fusion of data and money

There are a few steps to educating people about Bitcoin, especially newcomers. The first is that Bitcoin is more than just a new form of money (the common perception out there). “It’s a fusion of data and money,” he said, a way to ascribe monetary value to data, a way to own and monetize that data. Bitcoin is also not looking to replace current monetary system, but the way they’re managed. Bitcoin’s contract and tokenization capabilities can handle any or all of the world’s existing currencies as well as tracking ownership of other assets, managing devices, and computing with on- and off-chain data.

Bitcoin is “the foundational rule set for an entire network,” and is “re-inventing the internet,” he said. It is fast and low-cost, and has incentives that discourage bad behavior. This makes human and machine engagements more honest, since they can be proven right or wrong on one ledger that everyone can trust.

As he has pointed out in previous presentations, the Bitcoin whitepaper mentions “honest” 15 times. Moreover, Bitcoin had the capabilities to do all this in its original iteration.

But to make it work, “you’ve got to scale and you’ve got to scale big.”

Scaling at low cost opens many opportunities

Before 2017, Bitcoin had the capacity to handle only around seven transactions per second. This could never achieve mass adoption, and Nguyen likened it to the original email protocol being limited to seven messages per second worldwide… and deliberately keeping it that way for years.

Even Ethereum, where many disillusioned former Bitcoiners have turned, has scaling problems. Recently its “gas” and transaction fees have hit record highs—and you can’t have a network designed for tokenization and contracts executing at scale with those sorts of costs. Bitcoin, on the other hand, had a median transaction fee of 1/100 of a U.S. cent “and we think that’s too high.” Bitcoin currently processes over 2,800 transactions per second on its mainnet, and could hit 50,000 in the near future. The Teranode enterprise-tier protocol is looking to 1TB transaction blocks, all while keeping fees low.

Bitcoin offers scalable solutions for health care, clinical research, esports and gaming, supply chains, casinos, social media, financial service, and even “regtech” (regulatory technology). It breaks down data silos that prevent reliable information being shared between platforms but putting everything on one base ledger and accessible in real-time.

Bitcoin, he stressed again, is the opposite of anti-government. It promotes honesty, openness and efficiency, and could easily be a better internet.

“You’ll see many use cases emerging,” Nguyen said near the conclusion, inviting attendees online to “see this bigger vision.” The next few days will offer plenty of those, many of which are ready or almost ready for release. Bitcoin works now, it will work even better in the future—and this has been Satoshi’s vision from the start.

Steve Shadders: Satoshi’s P2P Vision for Bitcoin is here at last

Peer-to-peer transactions were promised in the original Bitcoin plan but remain the key “missing piece” of the network, said Steve Shadders, nChain CTO and technical director of the Bitcoin SV Node project. That’s all about to change with “SPV Channels”—a new way for Bitcoin users to conduct secure P2P transactions directly between devices and still broadcast them to the network, while avoiding security pitfalls like double-spends.

Shadders continued his tradition as one of the first speakers at any CoinGeek event, giving the Technical Update at CoinGeek Live, which started in New York City and London today. He said the term “P2P transactions” was often misused, with many assuming this is the way Bitcoin transactions already happened (thanks to the white paper title).

His presentation announced three new packages: SPV Channels v1.0.0, mAPI (formerly Merchant API) v1.2, and Bitcoin SV v1.0.6, titled “Push”. All are currently in beta, Shadders noted, but said they were being released so developers would be able to “start playing with them” immediately.

P2P transactions on Bitcoin at last

The original version of Bitcoin (which Shadders described as “alpha” and “a prototype”) had the ability to send transactions to IP addresses (known as IP2IP) which was incomplete at the time and never developed properly. For this to work, a sender had to know the receiver’s IP address—something that’s usually not known and is hard to discover. A second problem: how exactly to connect to that IP and structure the transaction and manage to broadcast it to the network for confirmation, remained a problem for years.

If users are offline, or if communication is directly between devices, how can they still be broadcast to the network and transaction processors in a secure way? How could receivers be confident the sender wasn’t attempting a double-spend (sending the same coins in two different transactions) either intentionally or accidentally if a transaction wasn’t broadcast till some later point?

The SPV Channels method, as the name suggests, works hand in hand with simplified payment verification (SPV) and is an essential component in Bitcoin scaling. It’s an end-to-end messaging “nano-service” with push capability that operates over a private channel that requires only outbound connections. It’s similar to functionality in existing online messaging platforms, and Shadders likened it to IMAP email—you’ll still get all your messages even if you’re offline for a while.



He gave the following use case example. A customer and merchant find each other’s details via Paymail service discovery. The merchant then locates a processor’s (miner) mAPI via MinerID and uses it to request a fee quote. The merchant constructs a transaction and submits it to the customer, and the customer sends the transaction. The merchant then sends it to a processor via mAPI, and registers an SPV Channel URL for callbacks. This part of the process is where any double-spend attempt is detected, and the merchant is notified immediately (if online). Once the transaction is processed in a block, the processor/miner sends a merkle proof record to the SPV Channel, which the merchant keeps in their database. The merchant has the option to send that proof to the customer as well.

Shadders gave a live demonstration of SPV Channels on-stage, including a double-spend attempt which was instantly detected and flagged.

Features in all three new software releases all contribute to realizing Satoshi Nakamoto‘s original desire for a peer-to-peer transaction network, and assist with scaling. Bitcoin SV is the only blockchain transaction network with the ability to do this, while remaining legally compliant yet open, and able to scale massively at minimal cost.

Transmira’s Omniscape harnesses AR Bitcoin’s ‘greater power’ for Xperiential Reality


On September 30, Transmira Inc. founder and CEO Robert Rice took the virtual stage at CoinGeek Live 2020. Rice’s presentation, “XR (Experiential Reality) Applications: Greater Power with Bitcoin SV,” explored XR—the seamless blend of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)—and the possibilities it could create and has created, thanks to the work being done by Transmira’s Omniscape team.

On Omniscape, AR/VR experiences become business transactions, branding opportunities, and loyalty points for consumers.



Omniscape works through an app on your phone that gives the end-user a similar experience as Pokemon Go; except instead of catching pokemon, you “catch” 3D items that are offered by brands that can be redeemed for money or a discount on goods and services.


If you are looking to start using Omniscape today then you are in luck. The Transmira team has partnered with the CoinGeek Live to give conference viewers the opportunity to earn a bit of Bitcoin SV as well as vote for the hackathon winner through Omniscape.

“We built an app for the conference that will allow people to vote on the hackathon, answer some daily trivia questions about the presentations, and the highlight is an AR experience with 3D logos for each of the gold sponsors,” said Rice. “If you click on the logos, they convert into a BSV deposit into your linked BSV wallet. The amounts per object are somewhat randomized and will range from a few cents to several dollars, with multiple drops every day through the duration of the conference. Users will need to link their BSV wallet to the app using their handle.

As far as we know, this is the first time ever that 3D objects in AR are directly linked to digital currency, and a near-instant deposit into a wallet (all on-chain). It is a pretty simple experience, but the implications are huge and probably the big news item here I think. These 3D objects could just as easily be a pair of 3D Nike’s that can be collected and then redeemed at the mall for a discount on or a free pair of shoes (or any other product or special offer).”

Omniscape has the potential to change the game when it comes to advertising and marketing. With Omniscape, individuals and businesses can buy digital real estate on which they can create 3D objects that others can collect and redeem at businesses or that could simply serve as advertisements. Seeing that Pokemon Go was a hit and there was not even a monetary aspect to the game, giving brands and individuals the opportunity to offer their customers discounts and rewards through an AR/VR experience can have a significant impact on a business’s bottom line.

Craig Wright at CoinGeek Live: ‘We want to validate the existence of a computation’


Dr. Craig S. Wright took the stage at the CoinGeek Live London studio on September 30, and gave a presentation about “Outsourced Computation on Bitcoin: How One World Blockchain Powers a New Future for Computing & Cloud System.”

Dr. Wright’s presentation addressed the efficiency of node operators and a few of the many things that are possible when nodes are operating efficiently. He also explained why Ethereum’s computational validation system is inefficient. 

“We don’t want miners doing everything, we don’t want to be Ethereum,” said Dr. Wright.





The problem with Ethereum is that every node runs the computation itself to determine whether or not the computation at hand is valid. However, this is not an efficient system. “It is not about the machines,” said Dr. Wright, “it is about the outcome. We want to validate the existence of a computation, not have every single node re-do the computation to say, yes this is true and valid.”

Fortunately, Bitcoin already does this.

“[We] set up a system where we incentivize people for finding solutions and verifying that things work,” said Dr. Wright. “If your tx isn’t valid or others in the chain reject it, then you are not going to get paid.”

There is no need for every node on the network to run the computation to check for validity when we can check if the end result is valid or not. This opens up a world of opportunities when it comes to what nodes can do, or rather, the data they can verify, on the Bitcoin network.





If you missed Dr. Wright’s presentation, we recommend you watch the full video https://youtu.be/FAEoXeN0b8M?t=26771
You will also have three more opportunities to watch Dr. Wright speak at CoinGeek Live 2020.



On October 1s, Dr. Wright will be having a fireside chat with Bitcoin Association President Jimmy Nguyen about “The Importance of Bitcoin as a Timestamp Server.” On October 2nd, Dr. Wright will be giving a keynote titled “From the Internet to Bitcoin: The Digital Ledger to Advance the World’s Technology Infrastructure.” And later in the day on October 2nd, Dr. Wright will be participating in the fireside chat, “Can Satoshi Nakamoto Save the Internet & World Money” alongside technology visionary George Gilder.

How Bitcoin SV provides data ledger for Internet of Things

“With data, it’s crap in, crap out,” said Daniel Keane of Predict Ecology, explaining some of the problems he’s found using existing datasets in environmental projects. Some sets are too small, short-term, or not comprehensive enough to work on useful outcomes. Keane spoke together with Paul Chiari (WeatherSV and MetaStreme) and Brendan Lee (Elas) at CoinGeek Live about using the Bitcoin SV (BSV) ledger to store massive amounts of data generated by everything Internet of Things (IoT) from pumps to trees and even cows.

The three spoke via video hookup from Cairns, Australia—a wet tropical city where having the best data on environmental conditions can make a huge difference to the local ecosystem, agriculture, and lifestyle. They explained how each project is unique, yet brought together on the BSV chain with MetaStreme to create longer-term, more useful datasets for future generations to access.

MetaStreme: the link between Big Data and the BSV chain

Chiari spoke first, giving an update on WeatherSV and the newer MetaStreme project—a system that can provides a connection between any kind of Big Data/IoT system and the BSV blockchain. This involves a database/API link for existing databases, data-generating IoT devices or applications, facilitating access to other data sources, and also arranging payment methods where they’re needed.





WeatherSV and MetaStreme have produced and process massive amounts of data on the BSV chain, and has so far been one of its heaviest users. They’ve also been a demonstration of how Big Data projects can negotiate stable fee deals with transaction processors and look for more efficient ways to handle them. MetaStreme devised a process to batch multiple outputs into a single input, something Chiari said reduced daily transactions by 70%.

MetaStreme has worked mainly with environmental and agricultural projects so far, given Chiari’s location and background. However it’s capable of processing data streams on the BSV blockchain for any kind of data-generating project. One demonstration Chiari mentioned was tracking Kanye West’s presidential campaign. At its peak, Kanye2020 was hitting 2,847 transactions per second.

MetaStreme has also recently worked with Eli Afram on a project call “b-vote,” building a blockchain-based transparent voting system.

“BSV is the only protocol that’s up to the task,” he said, however, “unbounded scale means we always stay head of demand.”

Conifers and Cassowaries in Cairns: Predict Ecology

Ecologist Daniel Keane talked about Predict Ecology, a company he founded to measure and track something he called “natural capital”—a term to describe the value of an ecosystem that includes the people, plants and wildlife living in and around it.

“Data streams can demonstrate improved environmental services and function,” he said.

Each impacts the other and it’s necessary to gather as much information about all this as possible. Keane gave the examples of Southern Conifers, a local tree that can live for over a thousand years, and Cassowaries, a large and flightless native bird. His system looks at the trees’ growth rate and the birds’ habitat, measuring impact of external factors like carbon dioxide. Where there is a negative impact, with reliable data there’s more hope of the ecosystem being restored.



By using BSV Predict Ecology can tokenize individual trees and track their condition. A project he’s working on with the Cairns City Council has already audited 30% of all trees in the city (being tropical, Cairns has a lot more trees than most urban centers).

The data Predict Ecology gathers can be validated, referenced, and audited all in the one place. “It’s a combined dataset of natural capital on the BSV ledger,” he said.

As an ecologist, Keane said he really missed having datasets that covered longer periods of time. However, by processing and storing it all on the Bitcoin BSV blockchain, “my grandchildren will be able to use this.”

Gathering data from IoT devices, and sending it back

Another company with ties to MetaStreme and Predict Ecology—but with the ability to handle anything else—is Elas Digital. Founder Brendan Lee made several announcements about the company, which recently acquired Darren Kellenschwiler’s Probatus (Baemail, ProDesk) and is working on a prototype gold-backed currency token with Amleh Gold.



Lee described how Elas handles data from “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices. The first, called Node RED, is a control system management tool that loads software onto the devices and creates a link between then and the BSV chain using tokens and “Bitcoin state machines.”

The demonstration model handled a pump/tank control system. It controls the state of tokens created using input data from each piece of equipment. Using the state machine described above, it then pushes instructions back to the physical equipment to control their function.

Lee also talked about “Moovement,” a food provenance system that tracks a cow’s entire lifespan (and a period of time after it). A GPS-enabled tag attached to the cow’s ear tracks its movement, food, health condition and medical treatments at the farm. After the cow is “processed” and turned into beef, that data is used to generate a report than can then be attached to the product a customer buys in the supermarket. Scanning a QR code gives a full history of the cow’s life—thus guaranteeing more confidence in the food people eat.

Elas is also working on a carbon credit trading system using BSV tokens. “Carbon is a valuable commodity today,”,he said, describing how those with lower outputs can trade their credits on an exchange by selling them to higher CO2 emitters. This is connected to Predict Ecology’s urban trees project, using them as a “carbon abatement resource.” Elas is currently looking at a project in cooperation with the Cairns City Council, and Lee estimated at least $400,000 worth of carbon credits could be traded on the system every year.

Most of the data-generating systems described here cover environmental and political concerns, but the same processes and BSV links could apply to anything that relies on large amounts of data to produce “less crap” outcomes in the future.

IoT devices large and small continue to proliferate. There are 9 billion of them in the world now, and Chiari said estimates predict 13.8 billion by 2024. Something needs to handle all this information, all in one place to avoid silos, and make it auditable. BSV allows all this and can create new economies with data marketplaces—all traceable and auditable, forever.

Re-imagining modern finance on Bitcoin SV blockchain at CoinGeek Live


We live in a world governed by financial systems skewed to benefit the few at the expense of the many. While modern technology is gradually changing these systems, we are still a long way from living in an equitable society. But what if Bitcoin could finally usher in a new era of opportunity and equality? The Bayesian Group has been working on solutions for the broken financial system and they shared their journey during the presentation at CoinGeek Live.

Bayesian’s chief visionary Roy Bernhard took to the virtual stage on Day 2, aided by the senior director of enablement Casandra Cook who was live in the Kennington Studios in London.

The Bayesian Group has been working on “consumer-first, transparent solutions built on Bitcoin SV,” in line with its mission of furthering positive change by transforming the fabric of our global systems.

“We are not waiting for people to tell us what their problems are, we are solving problems people don’t even know they have. We are doing this in a transparent way driven by the right moral compass,” Cook stated.

Cook took the audience through the challenges of the current financial system and why it’s imperative to find a better solution now. They include being inefficient and with high unnecessary overheads, over-complicated, geographically constrained and technologically outdated. This system is also inaccessible, with over 1.7 billion unable to access basic financial services globally.



Bayesian’s solution is the creation of fabriik, a token platform where users can mint and trade tokens on Bitcoin SV. This interconnected system will allow its uses to transform, hold, trade and grow every asset they own. Being protocol agnostic, fabriik allows engineers to focus on building protocols that are suited for anything, from generic to highly-specialized use cases.

Bayesian is also building an interconnected marketplace for the future, bound together by fabriik. The marketplace will bring together a global spot and derivatives exchange, qualified custodians, market makers and global funds. Bernhard invited any interested company to provide competing products and services in the marketplace and carve out its market share.

“Our marketplace comes with a custodian. Have a better one? Amazing. Come and join and win over the market share. Or better yet, partner with us and let’s create custodial solutions the world has never seen before. […] We believe in healthy competition with the same energy we believe in collaboration.”

Bitcoin experts discuss state of BSV tokens


We hear a lot about “tokens on BSV.” But what is a token? What are they used for, and by whom? How should they be made? The idea has been around as long as Bitcoin itself, but hasn’t fulfilled its potential. A panel representing some of the most experienced thinkers in the space discussed these issues at CoinGeek Live this week to give everyone a better idea of how this could happen.

The panel consisted of: moderator Jimmy Nguyen, James Belding of Tokenized, Steve Shadders of nChain, TAAL CEO Jerry Chan, Ryan X. Charles, Omniscape founder Robert Rice, and Stephan Nilsson of UNISOT. Notably, there were several different opinions on how exactly tokenization should happen—yet all agreed BSV was the only blockchain capable of performing the task.

What’s a token, anyway?

To put it (way too) simply, a token is a digital entity representing ownership of something else. It might be a physical asset, or another digital item, or a concept. The important thing is that its ownership and the definition of what the token represents is processed on the blockchain, and that ownership can be traced back to the transaction that originally created it.

Too often, the word “token” has come to mean something traded on an exchange (usually for other digital assets). The rush to create tokens with little utility other than to raise speculative value for their holders tarnished the word somewhat. However, using Bitcoin tokens is a long-discussed concept, from the days of Colored Coins, Mastercoin and CounterParty. There are still a few odd collectibles around today—after all, the blockchain lives forever.

Nilsson said a token was “a smart digital twin.” His company UNISOT isn’t so much in the business of creating tokens but rather solutions for using them. He referred to “behind the scenes” tokens, performing functions that aren’t always visible.



Where are all the BSV tokens?

We hear so much about tokenization on BSV… so where are all the tokens? Nguyen asked. “People are itching for tradeable tokens,” he said, referring to RelayX’s recent launch of the USDC stablecoin.

Shadders said USDC was indeed “bringing something new to BSV,” and that time would tell if it gains adoption. He too talked about tokens working more behind the scenes, performing their tasks mostly in the background, in mundane business processes.



So far, said Belding, most tokens have been “toys” and/or “scammy”. “The value a token provides isn’t necessarily financial.” A tokens mostly tracks other information, he added, and said not to worry because BSV tokenization is only just getting going.

Rice called the idea a “fertile and untapped ground,” adding that he was a newcomer to this particular scene and was thinking of ways data could be manipulated in 3D environments, which Omniscape is busy developing.

Charles said he was just fine with the pace of development on BSV. He doesn’t think it’s moving too slowly at all, and in fact “the rest of the crypto industry is moving very quickly… in the wrong direction.” In any case, he sees his competition as companies like Nasdaq, not other blockchains.

On that note, Shadders said he’d been speaking to a lot of people with existing projects, but who’d been working on Ethereum. They know it can’t scale, he said, and they want what they’re doing to be legal. They see what’s happening in BSV and turn to people there for advice. “Most of them understand what a legal hole they’ve got themselves into,” he said, and that 95% of the tokens out there already have neither value nor utility.

Layer Zero, Layer One, Layer Two

A hot topic in the discussion centered on how tokens should best be constructed. There’s “Layer Zero” (using actual Satoshi units as tokens), “Layer One” (where all token processes are recorded as transactions on the BSV chain) and “Layer Two” (where most of the logic is performed by an external platform, such as Tokenized, and only status changes are logged on-chain as proof).



Belding, not surprisingly since Tokenized is a Layer Two (L2) platform, said there were lots of great designs out there. A token platform needs to be simple and easy to use, as well as flexible.

L2 meant more flexibility, he said. You can add or remove oracles, freeze or confiscate tokens more easily, and perform bug fixes and upgrades whenever necessary. With L1 that’s all possible, but difficult with the level of Bitcoin Script expertise currently available. L1 also presented the problem of what happens when someone’s private key is compromised—you’d need to swap out the keys and reissue every single token related to it, incurring huge costs and inconvenience. L2 is more usable and efficient in the business world, he said.

Chan agreed that L0/L1 tokens could have the same functionality as L2, but it was more complex and required specific skills. He said lower level tokens were more like an operating system or code like HTML, while L2 was “more like a disk, where you store information.”



It would depend on the size of the token’s user base, he said. However, “for true scalability, the only solution we know is Bitcoin UTXOs.” Direct BSV solutions would also always work, whereas L2 solutions relied on the platform provider still existing as long as the tokens were required.

Charles said Bitcoin Script is “the predicate” lying underneath everything else, and that his company (Money Button, which was recently acquired to join Fabriik) remained agnostic on preference.

Most agreed the options weren’t mutually exclusive, and there’s plenty of room for L0, L1 and L2 to interact, with users picking and choosing options depending on their needs. “Let the market decide”, said Shadders, adding that nChain is in the unusual position of having invented L1 tokenization while working more with companies on L2 solutions.

They also agreed there should be some kind of official standard, to guarantee interoperability and to ensure tokens still worked even if a L2 provider went away.

“Sometimes great complexity is required to provide simplicity,” Belding said. For example, there’s governance rules—they’re complicated to write, but need to be easy for users to understand and manage.

At the end of the day, none of this matter if no-one uses BSV so mass adoption should be a priority for anyone building tokenized systems. The panel said it was important for businesses to compete for customers, but cooperate and agree on more fundamental things like standards and promoting benefits. What matters most is the message that tokenization has potential, yet it can only work on Bitcoin BSV. Only the BSV network has the ability to handle the data at scale, and process it all in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

CoinGeek Live 2020 will bring the Bitcoin conference to a close, with a jam-packed schedule of speakers and industry-specific presentations.

The day gets underway with opening remarks from Bitcoin Foundation Founding President Jimmy Nguyen, on Making Bitcoin Easy to Use for Everyone. Nguyen is joined by Alex Agut and Rafa Jiménez Seibane of HandCash to look at how Bitcoin SV (BSV) is to become more usable in payments for mainstream consumer markets.

Nguyen is then joined by John Brackens (Esports Entertainment Group) Adam Kling (Kronoverse) and Rahul Sood (Unikrn) to look at esports and the role of BSV in improving the emerging esports industry thanks to its capacity for mass scale.

Cashless casinos and iGaming is the focus of the session immediately afterwards, where Nguyen is joined by Matthew Dickson, co-founder & CEO of BitBoss; Ed Andrewes, CEO of Resorts Digital Gaming; Stephen Crystal, CEO of SCCG Management; and Eric Bowers, VP of Architecture & Innovation at Boyd Gaming.

The iGaming theme extends into the next session titled ‘iGaming Future: How the Bitcoin Blockchain Can Power More Efficiency and Transparency Across the Industry’s Value Chain’, with a new lineup featuring Phillip Runyan (CEO, Hold Gaming) and Sam Brown (COO, Hero Gaming) among others to discuss how BSV is shaping the future of online gambling.

Intellectual property is next on the agenda with a look at how BSV is securing IP rights, before a live Q&A from Switzerland, focusing on the successes of the country’s Crypto Valley in Zug. This leads in perfectly to the first keynote speech of the day from Dr. Craig S. Wright.

The afternoon looks increasingly at issues of compliance, with a session on KYC on the blockchain, before tools and tips for global compliance for digital currency businesses. This is followed by a session on investing in BSV businesses, before the winners of the 3rd Bitcoin SV Hackathon are announced.

The event culminates in a keynote from economist and writer George Gilder on whether Bitcoin can save the Internet, and the function of money.

CoinGeek Live 2020: Reinventing the Internet with Bitcoin SV

The existing Internet model is broken, this much is clear. Bitcoin SV (BSV) has given developers globally the opportunity to reinvent the Internet and fix this broken model. Three of the most innovative startups leading this revolution took the virtual stage on Day 2 of CoinGeek Live to discuss how BSV has enabled new models for digital media and user content.


Twetch has been one of the most successful BSV startups, attracting interest from tens of thousands of users who want to own their data on social media. Twetch cofounder Billy Rose was one of the panelists, explaining how his startup is taking on Twitter and Facebook.

“We believe we have found the solution to all the Internet’s problems,” Rose said.





He was joined on stage by Luke Rohenaz, the CEO and founder of TonicPow, a startup using Bitcoin SV to transform advertising. TonicPow emerged as the first runner-up in the first Bitcoin SV Hackathon in May last year and has continued to build on this success.





The third panelist was Connor Murray, the CEO of True Reviews, a Bitcoin-powered review system.

One of the biggest flaws in the existing Internet model is how a few companies continue to profit from content created by their users. The three companies have been working to change this, allowing their users to earn from their content.

“A lot of these big companies in Silicon Valley profit from their users’ time and energy. The value that users create for the platforms only benefits a few individuals,” Murray said.

The three platforms are currently challenging legacy companies that have existed for decades in social media, online reviews and advertising. For True Reviews, Murray believes that partnering with these rivals could be beneficial and it would bring in more people to Bitcoin.

For Twetch, Rose doesn’t see any partnership with Twitter, Google, Facebook or other tech giants in the near future.

“Our goal is to flip the Internet inside out. We don’t have much interest in working with them unless it benefits us in some way. […] While Bitcoin and Twetch’s business model would benefit the users of these companies, it would require a complete overhaul for them to integrate Bitcoin,” he explained.

Beyond empowering the users, Bitcoin-powered platforms have also been solving the issue of misinformation. In an era that’s rife with fake news and bot-generated and curated content, Bitcoin is finally providing a solution.

With existing centralized platform, the power of content curation is bestowed upon a central party.  However, with Bitcoin, such authority is decentralized, “allowing the people who think that they have the most important content and the people who give that content attention” to push that content to the top, Rose explained.

The three panelists also shared their plans for the future. Rose revealed that Twetch had just released its desktop app, just weeks after releasing Twetch Chat, an encrypted messaging service. The team is currently working on a mobile app, Rose revealed. True Reviews will also be getting a new look and a new name in the near future, Murray told the audience.

“More people need to realize that this whole Bitcoin movement is a fight for your life, for your digital citizenship, to have ownership over everything you create on the Internet. We have to take back what’s ours on the Internet,” Rose concluded.

BSV Hackathon 2020

There were 3 finalists for the BSV Hackathon 2020 the competitors had different projects all very interesting:


Quote
The first finalist is RepZip, a project that seeks to finally solve the online identity challenge that has been the Achilles heel for Internet applications for the past two decades. Integrating with PayMail, RepZip not only offers digital identities but also verifiable credentials and on-chain contracts.

The second finalist, STOTASK is integrating Bitcoin into machine learning. The platform allows users to earn micropayments in Bitcoin SV for adding information to data tags. This integration of human assistance in machine learning will be critical in the long run as it will allow machines to better understand data classification.

The third finalist, Kyrt allows its users to integrate any application with the Bitcoin blockchain and in doing so, enables the storage, sending and monetizing of this data.

Whichever project you’re backing for the top prize, make sure to download the CoinGeek Conference app and cast your vote now.

It’s little surprise that BSV’s ability to scale was a major motivator, as is its focus on micropayments as a use-case. The two go hand-in-hand: only with the capacity to handle a huge amount of transactions, while keeping fees low enough to barely be noticeable, could any blockchain hope to fulfil this promise.

Faced with millions of transactions and processes per day, other blockchains (namely BTC and ETH) fall flat. Their fees become unaffordable, their mempools overflow, and any real business happening on their blockchains can grind to a halt.

Increasing name recognition and acknowledgement that BSV does in fact represent the original vision for Bitcoin are also key factors where exchanges decide to list the asset. As more exchanges jump on board, it’s another sign the propaganda war that rages against BSV is having little effect in the real world—if people see value in something, they will take an interest in it.
