  • Government Project Securing Land Titles on the Blockchain, par noreply@blogger.com (dinbits), 9 February 2017

    Thursday 9 February 2017 :: dinbits XBT News :: RSS

    The Republic of Georgia has committed to using the blockchain (bitcoins network) to validate property-related government transactions.

    Although not a new thing, this a bigger implementation and it's not with the blockchain title people, Ubitquity, who came out with this same product a year ago either, this is a new effort from BitFury.

    “The Bitfury Group is moving full speed ahead with the innovative government of the Republic of Georgia to advance the creation of Blockchain technology pilot projects, including our Blockchain land-titling project with the National Agency of Public Registry,” said Valery Vavilov, CEO of The Bitfury Group. “With this technology, where there is a will, there is a way. And thanks to the forward-looking Georgian government, there is a will. The possibilities for trusted solutions are limitless, and the land-titling project is the first of many creative solutions projects we are developing in concert with the Republic of Georgia and the Blockchain Trust Accelerator to better serve its citizens.” 

    Is Bitfury aware of Ubitquity? Hey Bitfury dudes? Bitfury dudes?

    Well maybe they'll read this and go check out the Ubitquity folks who already has a platform for this in place right now today. We outlined their platform last year (almost a full year ago).

    Moving Forward

    Apparently they either have heard of Ubitquity or haven't and built something else because they have a working solution. It works much like Overstocks T0 platform whereas it records property on an internal system (I won't say private anything-chain) and then sidechains to bitcoins blockchain for recording the transaction. Once on the blockchain it's set in stone... well actually its set in encrypted binary machine code, but I digress.

    Tea Tsulukiani, Georgia’s Minister of Justice, said that the Ministry of Justice of Georgia is “the leading ministry in the field of new technologies in terms of e-government, together with two other colleague ministries.” “We will be able to work with Blockchain technology from this summer to place real estate extracts in a totally safe and innovative system,”

    This again shows how the blockchain is moving forward, and bitcoin's blockchain is the natural choice for something like this, you really can't record land titles on dodgecoin's blockchain and expect an immutable record of any stability. 

    Not to impugn the work of dodgecoin, a very successful atlcoin, but the shear power of bitcoin blockchain is unmatched whereas dodgecoin network is only 2.7 TH, and that a drastic jump from 1.7 TH is peaked at in 2016. Roughly the hashrate of an old Antminer S4 ($50 on eBay) from back in the day.

    Moving On

    Bitfury plans to reinvent some more wheels with blockchain based things like a notary, of which there's many, and has introduced the The Blockchain Trust Accelerator to build solutions for social impact and governance challenges. The Accelerator is a partnership between The Bitfury Group, New America and the National Democratic Institute.

    Most recently Bitfury announced its global initiative at the world economic summit in Davos and plans to organize another world blockchain group. 

    Sure Bitfury may be reinventing a few wheels, but hey, it's Bitfury. They are one of the largest organizations in the space so they can do this if they wish to. Bitfury supports the most powerful, global blockchain, the bitcoin blockchain, and quite frankly in cases such as government land titles, it's really the only one suited for the solution. 

    Bitfury also wants to bring smart-contracts to the blockchain. This is something Ethereum (now that would be a home run), Blockstream, Rootstock, and others are also working on and something bitcoin developers (ex-bitcoin developer Mike Hearn specifically, yes the rage quitter) have already proven is capable currently, it's just extraordinarily difficult and why other efforts are moving forward with more realistic solutions.

  • After surge in transactions, Philippine central bank regulates Bitcoin, par Judith Balea, 9 February 2017

    The Philippine central bank has decided to regulate virtual currencies, particularly Bitcoin, with more and more people using it to transfer money across borders.
    Taking its cue from Japan, the first country to issue rules for Bitcoin in Asia, the central bank finally recognizes that the cryptocurrency “has the potential to revolutionize delivery of financial services” and “further support financial inclusion.”
    However, it wants to manage the risks involved, saying it could be used to transfer dirty money (i.e., laundered cash, terrorist financing). It also made clear that it doesn’t endorse Bitcoin as a currency.
    The central bank’s new circular, which takes effect in two weeks, covers entities that facilitate the conversion of Bitcoin or any virtual currency into fiat currency and vice versa.
    Bitcoin startups expect the new rules to have little impact on their operations.

    In Manila, Bitcoin is largely used for remittances and payments – with transaction volumes reaching up to US$6 million per month for certain major players – hence, Bitcoin companies are now to be treated as remittance companies.
    That means that all requirements for remittance companies such as registration, minimum capital, internal controls, regulatory reports, and compliance with know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) policies shall apply to Bitcoin startups.

    A welcome decision


    “We’ve been working with the central bank in the last two years to come up with the proper regulatory framework in which Bitcoin companies can operate within the bounds of the law, and it has provided exactly that,” said John Bailon, co-founder of Satoshi Citadel Industries.
    Coins.ph co-founder Ron Hose also applauded the move. “It recognizes the potential of the technology and sets standards that need to be met by players in this industry.”
    Luis Buenaventura, co-founder of BloomSolutions, dubbed the new rules well-meaning and a step forward but pointed out how it “overreaches by essentially treating Bitcoin business ideas in a one-size-fits-all way.”
    “The idea that every Bitcoin company that performs currency conversion is now a ‘remittance’ company means that startup concepts like Bitpay won’t work here, because these types of business models aren’t fundamentally structured around money transfer but need to comply as if they were,” he explained. Bitpay is a payment processor that allows people to buy stuff from online vendors using Bitcoin instead of their credit cards.
    Yet John believes it’s still the best move for the central bank. “It allowed them to be swift enough to support Bitcoin companies. They didn’t have to build a regulatory framework from scratch.”

    Little effect


    The startups expect the new rules to have little impact on their operations, especially on their ability to provide cheaper services than traditional money wiring firms and banks.
    Bitcoin companies were known to save on costs due to lack of KYC and AML compliance that are imposed on traditional providers.
    “Coins.ph has taken great effort to build a strong compliance program. Fortunately, this means we can expect fairly minimal effect on our operations as we continue to uphold the same stringent practices we have held so far,” said Ron.
    “There will be new operational costs for us, but we can absorb those,” said John. “The only impact our users would expect is stricter KYC policies, which is fine because we’ve been slowly implementing such strict rules in preparation for the circular.”

  • On Bullshit, par /u/jsfsn, 9 February 2017

    Thursday 9 February 2017 :: Bitcoin on reddit :: RSS

    "It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he knows the truth. Producing bullshit requires no such conviction. A person who lies is thereby responding to the truth, and he is to that extent respectful of it. When an honest man speaks, he says only what he believes to be true; and for the liar, it is correspondingly indispensable that he considers his statements to be false. For the bullshitter, however, all these bets are off: he is neither on the side of the true nor on the side of the false. His eye is not on the facts at all, as the eyes of the honest man and of the liar are, except insofar as they may be pertinent to his interest in getting away with what he says. He does not care whether the things he says describe reality correctly. He just picks them out, or makes them up, to suit his purpose." - Harry G. Frankfurt
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Bullshit
    I have been a Bitcoiner since 2012, mostly on the side line. It's obvious to me that a lot of bullshitters are making this community toxic. This is not happening only in this community but in the world at large. Facts are no longer important and many times ignored completely. It is so plainly obvious that the majority of BU-supporters do not understand how BU work (note: some do). The majority of this community do not understand how Bitcoin work in general, to be fair. People arguing with /u/nullc usually is like reading an argument between a three year old and a published scientist on whether the scientists conclusion on his research is sound or not.
    It is probably time to start mining at a loss to support segwit. More old time holders should.
