The false lure of anonymity
Published by Craig Wright on Feb 12, 2019
One of the strangest things for me comes from the retrogression into things like proof of stake and the associated failed models of cryptocurrency. When I was working on Blacknet in 2005 and 2006, I stumbled upon what later became the solution to Bitcoin and the problems that I saw. DigiCash released eCash in the 1990s. It was a form of cryptocurrency that was more anonymous than Zcash or Monero, and it is nowhere to be found anymore. In part, the failure stems from an attack against the founding organisation, but it should also be noted that eCash continued even after the bankruptcy of David Chaum’s company. Creating a distributed group is not the solution people believe it to be. The problem is that they are not looking at the correct answer.
Many individuals acting in a distributed group on the same software program that is not a protocol that is fixed and immutable are in fact what everyone loves to call centralised. If we for instance take Zcash or Monero, or even Ethereum, every one of them comes back to a simple case of one organisation. Even where people love to say, “but we are decentralised,” they end in a single instance of an organisation. They neglect to note that they are under law an unlimited partnership.
Unfortunately, I have lost track of how much or little people know, especially when looking across disciplines. I have studied law, economics, computer science, history, mathematics, and even theology and ethics, and my greatest failure in doing so has been losing track of the understanding of the average person.
RE: Something seems familiar here between "BlackNet" abstract authored by Caig Wright in 2001, and the Bitcoin whitepaper abstract authored by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009
Of course CSW makes no sense. He makes meta Sense. Obviously your brains have not learned to accept the new Bitcoin paratrooperdigm. This is because your brain lacks skin in the game. Your mistake is approching the subject rational. We are post rational, Bitcoin (invented by the great Brain of CSW) has changed EVERYTHING. Nothing is what it was before now that the verry esence of the universe has changed. Even the very essence of the very essence is no longer the very essence, which closes the turing complete loop in the 21 million demential spaceblocktimechain. CSW completed the Great Loop In Time And Space itself. Bitcoin is the metaphysical coinivestation of the elementary black hole theory collapsing in to itself. Of course you would not know what any of those words mean because you are not thinking in blockchains. In the future its very likely that our thoughts will be regulated and inriched by the collective enhanchement of the human species set in in motion by the Bitcoin-is-a-brain movement of the meta metanet. Thats right the singular meta net is a distraction to get rid of fools like yourself. The self refrencial meta meta net is the destanation of itself. And if you would be open to the briljant mind of reverand docter genius bitcoinist Craig Satoshi his blockiness the first (protector of the meta meta net and first decendant of the Blockchain Adam and Eve) Wright you would see that for yourself. But you are closed and not even his honorable doctor Wright can help you see the light shining down from the cloud on to the one true and holy chain of His Vision.
Now give me your money. I need some aspirine, i just gave myself a headache. See this is what most people dont realize.

The story of Bitcoin, continued
Published by Craig Wright on Feb 9, 2019
My first marriage ended in October 2010. It had been rocky for a time before it ended. I mentioned in my last post how I worked doing forensic contracts yet only for the prosecution. Some of them didn’t involve court. The same side but a completely different aspect of life. October 2010 was when I started to go quiet.
I was offline for much of January 2011. During the time, I had travelled to Venezuela where I was working with a “Jawbreaker” team. The work was focused on stopping the trafficking of humans for the sex trade. I was in “prevention.” I did not bring people to justice, I worked with teams to stop things, permanently.
My “Blind Date” in Venezuela had me progressing West to the border of Colombia. It was my last operation of the type. I was shot twice, and evidence of it is likely to still exist on the Internet for all my efforts to have destroyed it. I met with Colombian El Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad (DAS) agents, as my job was accessing systems and information, and on the occasion, it was related to an operation associated with garnishing evidence against FARC-V. Before, I was what some people would call an “agent of influence.”
Careful what you wish for…

I moved to the UK in October 2015. We still had business interests there, so I would fly to and from Australia, but my home was already to be in Wimbledon, London.
In 2016, I was dressed in a turtle neck. The PR people had the idea that they would transform me into the vision of a genius that the world wants to see. The idea was a poor copy of Steve Jobs. The flaw here comes from looking backwards. When he started, Jobs was the outsider. He was rejected, and fought to grow what he was building each and every day. The attempted building of an alternative version of what I created goes against all I stand for. Yet, I allowed myself to get into such a position.
I should say, I allowed myself to be dressed as the image that another saw as marketable, and I did not have the courage to stop and say no. Or I did, but at (close to) the worst possible time.
I like to wear suits. I enjoy wearing ties. So is my choice, and with wealth comes the right to decide. In my case, I plan to dress as the nerd in a three-piece suit. I like how I dress, and I am comfortable. I do not make my team wear suits nor dress as I do, I choose it for myself. I am comfortable in a suit.
The end of 2010 and on was hard enough for me. There was a lot occurring in my life that weighed down on my mood. Bitcoin was never designed to help an anonymous money-transfer system, and I was always opposed to those seeking to operate outside the law. I have worked for casinos. The thing people do not understand: There are licensed casinos, and there are illegal ones. I worked for companies such as Centrebet, and even helped launch Lasseter’s Online in the 90s. They were licensed, and acted within the law.
I do not like Wikileaks, and I have never been a fan of Assange’s methods. More importantly, I am strongly opposed to criminal markets and bucket shops. Ross Ulbricht and others like him are criminals. They are not freedom fighters, they are not libertarians. They simply are predators, and they are all that Bitcoin was designed to make far more difficult.

_unwriter's Tools Explained, Practical Use Cases Reviewed
_unwriter has been going HAM since the beginning of the New Year, releasing a new tool to enable folks to build on top of Bitcoin SV seemingly every day.
While most people paying attention can clearly see that he is contributing and is paving the way for great things to be built, perhaps some with a limited technical background are having trouble keeping up. I am fairly technical myself and I am having a hard time keeping up!
On occasion I find myself still having to go back an re-read how this stuff works, so I decided to write a post explaining what all these tools are at a high-level and some practical use cases that some have already proposed and some that perhaps no one else has thought of yet.
Making a Turing Machine in Bitcoin’s script
While Bitcoin supports smart contracts through its script, the expressive power of the language is intentionally limited. Particularly it doesn’t have loops and therefore it is considered to be not Turing Complete. It is possible though to approximate a loop through repeated if statements in the following way:
So we have shown that we can write a TM in Bitcoin’s script. Does that mean we could (in principle) execute any program? No! Turing Completeness only implies that any computation can be performed. What a program can do depends on how it can interact with the real world. Bitcoin scripts can receive very few inputs from outside. Ultimately though it doesn’t matter much because “smart contracts” which need to interact with the real world extensively need to rely on human consensus anyway making them redundant.

Ethereum, Side-chains, and Bitcoin SV
Publishded by shruggr on Feb 6, 2019
When I started with CryptoFights (https://cryptofights.io) just over a year ago, I was enthusiastic, but we were all pretty new to concepts of crypto development. The original idea of building a fun, skill-based game on the Ethereum blockchain quickly ran into the normal roadblocks of slow performance and expensive transactions.
Over the course of the last year of R&D, we threw many ideas against the wall, and pursued various alternative concepts for consensus and immutable data storage. We built prototypes of 3-party peer-to-peer mechanisms, various side-chain technologies, and even a consensus layer on top of IPFS.
With each new approach, the fact became clear that large portions of development tooling were not available and would need to be built. As the year progressed, we settled on EnjinCoin (ENJ) as a basis for our weapons, armor, and other collectables. Enjin utilizes Ethereum tokens, so naturally, EVM-based side-chains became the focus of research.
Running on Loom Network (DPoS), or PoA consensus rules with Parity/Geth added the benefits of providing faster performance as well as a robust set of development tooling allowing for development in the familiar world of Solidity, but problems still remained.
