Bitcoin 11 Years - Achievements, Lies, and Bullshit Claims So Far - Tooootally NOT a SCAM !!!!

That's right folks, it's that time again for the annual review of how Bitcoin is going: all of those claims, predictions, promises .... how many have turned out to be true, and how many are completely bogus ???
Please post / link this on Bitcoin (I am banned there for speaking the truth, so I cannot do it) ... because it'a way past time those poor clueless mushrooms were exposed to the truth.
Anyway, without further ado, I give you the Bitcoin's Achievements, Lies, and Bullshit Claims So Far ...
.
Bitcoin Achievements so far:
  1. It has spawned a cesspool of scams (2000+ shit coin scams, plus 100's of other scams, frauds, cons).
  2. Many 1,000's of hacks, thefts, losses.
  3. Illegal Use Cases: illegal drugs, illegal weapons, tax fraud, money laundering, sex trafficking, child pornography, hit men / murder-for-hire, ransomware, blackmail, extortion, and various other kinds of fraud and illicit activity.
  4. Legal Use Cases: Steam Games, Reddit, Expedia, Stripe, Starbucks, 1000's of merchants, cryptocurrency conferences, Ummm ????? The few merchants who "accept Bitcoin" immediately convert it into FIAT after the sale, or require you to sell your coins to BitPay or Coinbase for real money, and will then take that money. Some of the few who actually accept bitcoin haven't seen a customer who needed to pay with bitcoin for the last six months, and their cashiers no longer know how to handle that.
  5. Contributing significantly to Global Warming.
  6. Wastes vasts amounts of electricity on useless, do nothing work.
  7. Exponentially raises electricity prices when big miners move into regions where electricity was cheap.
  8. It’s the first "currency" that is not self-sustainable. It operates at a net loss, and requires continuous outside capital to replace the capital removed by miners to pay their costs. It’s literally a "black hole currency."
  9. It created a new way for people living too far from Vegas to gamble all their life savings away.
  10. Spawned "blockchain technology", a powerful technique that lets incompetent programmers who know almost nothing about databases, finance, programming, or blockchain scam millions out of gullible VC investors, banks, and governments.
  11. Increased China's foreign trade balance by a couple billion dollars per year.
  12. Helped the FBI and other law enforcement agents easily track down hundreds of drug traffickers and drug users.
  13. Wasted thousands if not millions of man-hours of government employees and legislators, in mostly fruitless attempts to understand, legitimize, and regulate the "phenomenon", and to investigate and prosecute its scams.
  14. Rekindled the hopes of anarcho-capitalists and libertarians for a global economic collapse, that would finally bring forth their Mad Max "utopia".
  15. Added another character to Unicode (no, no, not the "poo" 💩 character ... that was my first guess as well 🤣)
  16. Provides an easy way for malware and ransomware criminals to ply their trade and extort hospitals, schools, local councils, businesses, utilities, as well as the general population.

Correct Predictions:
  1. 2015-12: "1,000 dollar in 2015", u/Luka_Magnotta, aka time traveler from the future, 31-Aug-2013, https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1lfobc/i_am_a_timetraveler_from_the_future_here_to_beg/ (Technically, this prediction is WRONG because the highest price reached in 2015 was $495.56 according to CMC. Yes, Bitcoin reached $1,000 in 2013 and 2014, but that's NOT what the prediction says).

It started with expensive safes, then began to include bodyguards, and today, "earlies" (our term for early adapters), as well as those rich whose wealth survived the "transition" live in isolated gated cities called Citadels, where most work is automated. Most such Citadels are born out of the fortification used to protect places where Bitcoin mining machines are located.

Amazon, eBay, NASDAQ on a Blockchain?

Amazon, eBay, NASDAQ on a Blockchain?

Making of Decentralized, Distributed, Open Multi-Tenant, Multi-sided Market Enablement Platform

By: David Beberman, CTO

Multi-Sided Markets
In an article posted by Tren Griffin on his blog 25iq, “A Dozen Things I’ve Learned about Multi-sided Markets (Platforms)”[1], he defines a multi-sided market as a platform where multiple participants interact directly with each other. He provides examples such as LinkedIn, Uber, eBay, Airbnb, and others. These are all examples of multi-sided markets, (“MSM”), but we would further distinguish them as multi-sided market centralized platform.
With the innovation of the Extensible Blockchain Object Modeltm (“XBOMtm”), and the Extensible Smart Object Assettm (“XSOAtm”), on the DataGrid Blockchaintm (“DGBtm”), a multi-sided market decentralized enablement platform can now be created.
The following provides an overview of a decentralized platform for a multi-sided market of generalized assets (e.g. physical things, financial instruments, etc.).
DGB-AmazBay
To give an idea of what a decentralized MSM might look like, lets use a fictious MSM company, its salient features, and how they operate on a decentralized enablement platform, the DGBtm. Let’s call this company DGB-AmazBay. DGB-AmazBay wants its multi-sided market to have the following features:
· Search for items offered for sale (physical products, digital products, services, etc.)
o Pricing for those things
· Purchasing — means for exchange of items for payment
· Regulations — means for adhering to laws, regulations and rules for conducting commerce in any and all jurisdictions that a seller and buyer may interact
· Ratings — means for rating the quality of the sellers and buyers
· Analytics — various statistics, algorithms, machine learning, etc. applied to “meta data” about the market place
· Individual Sovereignty — the market place does not control (i.e. take custody) of the items for sale, the payments, or seller’s “store”
· Scalability — the decentralized enablement platform must scale to support a global market place and community
Let’s take each one of these features separately.
Search
Discovery of items for sale is a prerequisite for any instances of commerce. In a centralized online market, items for sale are uploaded and stored in a centralized database server. Discovery consists of database queries by clients of the centralized market server.
For the decentralized DGB-AmazBay, items for sale are added to the blockchain by seller accounts individually. However, our fictious DGB-AmazBay needs to provide a means for buyers to find the items for sale. To accomplish this, it continually scans the blockchain and provides a search tool that can be queried by clients.
In comparison to the centralized market, decentralized DGB-AmazBay’s search acts as a service for organizing such items, but doesn’t control any items or accounts.
Purchasing
A centralized online market acts as the go-between between the seller and the buyer of an item. It may have multiple means of payment for the buyer for example. It may also price items in multiple currencies, perhaps providing currency exchange internally. It also stores the information about payment information for the buyer which creates a privacy liability.
For our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay, all transactions of purchase and sale occur directly between the seller and the buyer of an item on the blockchain. Since all items are priced in the native cryptocoin of the blockchain, DGTtm, the means of payment is simplified to a transfer of coin from the buyer to the seller account. By eliminating the go-between, the decentralized DGB-AmazBay market has no liability of the transfer of either the items or the payment. That is, the DGB-AmazBay never takes custody of either the items or the payments.
Regulations
A centralized online market must adhere to the laws, regulations and rules of the jurisdictions it operates in. To accomplish this, it must register all participants in its market, and manage all such, for each jurisdiction it operates in. All related information must be stored in its centralized database for use in all participant interactions.
Our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay also must adhere to the laws, regulations and rules of the jurisdictions. However, adherence is based on account authorization certifications, which are part of the seller and buyer accounts. For an instance of commerce, the DGB-AmazBay does not take on liability of the jurisdictions, the seller and buyer accounts and the associated Smart Object Assetstm manage that directly. However, the DGB-AmazBay may provide advisory information to sellers and buyers about the jurisdictions.
Ratings
An MSM needs some means for evaluating the participants in the market, (i.e. sellers and buyers). This is accomplished through some form of a ratings system. From an abstract viewpoint, this might be an actual numeric rating, posted reviews, or some other means. A centralized online market offers a rating system, which may be for one or more types of participants in the market, (i.e. sellers, buyers, or both). The centralized market maintains its own centralized database with the ratings information, and can edit and censor it at its discretion.
Our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay provides various forms of ratings using information directly from the blockchain. Such information may include the number of sales, the longevity of accounts, and other types of data that are useful evaluating seller and buyer accounts. Further, it can provide an independent service for participants to provide reviews and rating of accounts. In this case, the DGB-AmazBay acts as a mixed decentralized and centralized service.
Analytics
A centralized online market creates all of its own analytics either directly, or by selling access to its data. The centralized market controls, edits, and censors at its discretion. By now this should sound familiar.
Meanwhile, our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay provides analytics as a service using information directly from the blockchain. It may offer its analytics as a service to blockchain account holders, or to other clients. Since it uses the decentralized blockchain, the accounts and other clients are not beholden to the DGB-AmazBay as the sole source of analytics.
Individual Sovereignty
In the context of the MSM, we mean by individual sovereignty[2] that the account owner has control over their own assets and currency. A centralized online market does not offer individual sovereignty over the user accounts. The centralized online market may at anytime, terminate, censor, or otherwise affect a user’s account.
Our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay doesn’t take any ownership of any accounts. Therefore, it has no direct control of any related assets or currency. It promotes individual sovereignty for multi-sided markets on the blockchain.
Transaction Scalability
A successful MSM expects an increasing number of users and an increasing number of transactions. If the enabling platform is unable to scale with users and transactions, the market may reach a failure point. A centralized market addresses this problem with centralized server solutions. This includes distributed database servers, loadbalancing and similar enabling platform solutions.
If our fictious decentralized DGB-AmazBay wants to be successful, its decentralized enabling platform must scale with accounts and transactions. As luck would have it, DGB-AmazBay happens to have picked the DGBtm as its enabling platform blockchain. As a result, transaction and account scalability is built in to the DGBtm and DGB-AmazBay can concern itself with its own operations without this concern.
Separability and Competitive Multi-sided Markets
The features we described for the fictious DGB-AmazBay have one more aspect, separability. Each one of the features: search, purchasing, ratings, analytics, and regulations are independent of each other. Building on a decentralized platform enables competition among market businesses. A competitive landscape fosters improvement. Each feature can be reimagined as entirely separate businesses in a competitive landscape.
Decentralized Enablement Platform Applied to Multi-sided Markets (“MSM”)
Putting it altogether, the following diagram depicts a block diagram of the various components involved. It also includes the concept of market makers. Depending on the MSM, there may be an opportunity for one or more market makers. That is, entities that facilitate efficient decentralized markets by being on the opposite side of transactions if and when needed.

Decentralized Multi-sided Market vs Fiat Multi-sided Market and Individual Sovereignty
Cryptocurrencies are thought of as an answer to fiat currencies. With the concerns about fiat currency described in this hacker noon article, “Bitcoin: The Living Room Revolution”[3], by Farbood Nivi, pointing out that monetary policy for fiat currency is under the control of the government (democracy, dictator, monarch, etc.).
We agree that cryptocurrency is an answer to fiat currency. But we believe that this is only part of a more general answer about individual sovereignty. In order for a currency to be accepted as a means of commerce, businesses and individuals must be willing to accept it. If the market places do not accept the currency as a means of commerce then the currency can’t be used in the society, regardless of whether it is crypto or fiat based.
We submit that all of the centralized multi-sided markets in existence form a sort of oligarchy. One can think of them as centralized fiat MSMs. In this case the term fiat means both that the MSM accepts fiat currency, but also that as a centralized market, it controls by its own internal fiat, what currencies are accepted.
Due to the massive dominance of only a handful of online commerce sites, a prohibition on acceptance of cryptocurrency can significantly limit it reaching widespread acceptance. Further note that governments by fiat can prohibit businesses within their jurisdiction from accepting cryptocurrency.
The decentralized multi-sided market concept described above, can help increase the acceptance of cryptocurrency in two ways: if the centralized multi-sided market oligarchs essentially boycott crypto, the enablement of decentralized solutions will help break the control by the seeming oligarchs; and if government prohibits crypto MSMs by fiat, individual sovereignty over assets enables the continuation of private asset transactions.
We do not propose or expect that jurisdictional regulations should be eliminated or bypassed. We see instead that the decentralized MSM is one more aspect that can promote individual sovereignty, and a fairer, more inclusive society.

Blockchain Rising

I've been posting a few essays on cryptocurrencies, which have potential to (and will) replace fiat currencies. And surely you are aware of the massive censorship that has been happening on facebook, YouTube, and even on reddit. I'm beginning to learn about how blockchain technology can be applied to the world of videos and other forms of user uploaded content. New cases are steemit and DTube.
Do you remember MySpace? It was THE pioneer in social media before facebook Pac-Manned it. I predicted the massive diversification of cryptocurrencies, but it is surprising how quickly it arrived. I now am predicting facebook, YouTube, and reddit will fade away like MySpace when the new blockchain applications come to power. (It's very early days. Pac-Man was once a big deal too.) This is the new paradigm. Centralization will go away like the dinosaurs, whether with a bang or a whimper I don't know, but it will go.

DTube is a child of steemit. Note: Creator of DTube is native French speaker, so you might find some peculiarities in his texts or speech. The guy created the seed for YouTube's new competitor in his spare time! It's pure volunteer hacker territory.

Sep 2 To highlight a notable conversation with u/ kajep33, edited, for the record... ME: I do wonder what kind of organization you suppose is superior (to democracy)? kajep33: Any, that doesn't appeal to the "people's will"... Democracy is a form of collective responsibility, when no one is really responsible for bad choices. You can overthrow a shitty monarch, but you can't overthrow people you have to live with. The only way it can work well is making participation in elections chargeable (pay to vote), but this won't happen any time soon. ME: Who knows better what people want or need than themselves? kajep33: "... They want milk rivers and caramel forests." ME: This is a flippant answer. I think if you want to be considered a credible interlocutor, you should either answer in a credible manner, or be more creative yet, and give us a little poem that contains this line... (then later) You skipped this part. Not up to the challenge? Well, never mind. I am. While I'm only guessing as to what you meant by the cryptic clip, I took a guess...
Limerick style
the majority group spoke so rhetorical as to make their demands categorical; they would not be done, until they had won, mountains of sweets metaphorical.
Haiku style
rivers and forests imply natural wonders colossal in size
democracy's wants colossally greedy for milk and caramel
And then I had an idea that these little poems may be likened to cryptocurrency, and something else. Your brief line about milk, caramel, rivers and forests was like a request for an imagination transaction. I used my imagination to "mine" for ideas that fit into predefined forms. Now I'm sending them to you, kajep. Hope you like 'em.

We have intelligence services growing into a technological capacity that eclipse their very governments.* We have been waging war on drugs for nearly 30 years spanning nearly 15 countries with 120,000+ people killed and countless more missing or injured.* We worry about 'terrorists' some 3000 miles away, while cartels behead people with chainsaws right across our very own borders.* We see near autonomous vehicles scan the skies 24 hours a day in third world countries where children dream of drones and mothers sew blankets with images of them on it.* We've seen our commander in chief redefine the definition of what it means to be a soldier so we can blow up a wedding or birthday party in order to kill a single individual who will easily and willingly be replaced by 12 others.* We enjoy the miracle of flight, by forcing ourselves to stand prone and scanned from head to toe to view our naked bodies, before we have one of our many national identification cards stamped and logged of our travel plans.*
We have corporations that have completely bridled the elective process with money literally being defined as speech, including witness the American tax-payer hand over nearly a trillion dollars.* These are dystopian dictatorships that have more power and wealth than any king or monarch could even fathom. We have a tax system so convoluted, so massively complicated that these very corporations can get away with the government paying them taxes* , a system where the rich pay to find and exploit the loopholes. We live in a world where the top 1% controls more wealth than the lower 50% combined.* We have black sites being operated and maintained on American soil where citizens are no longer read their Miranda rights and not a single major media outlet batted an eye.* Every phone call, every email, every text message sent, every keystroke made is logged and an army of tech savvy mathematicians and scientists combs over them to take the pulse of civil disobedience in the nation.* We've seen a single family fund, organize, and execute 2000 Americans by flying our own planes into the symbol of our financial center without a single iota of justice served, yet a plethora of atrocities in its place all while they are embraced in our bosom as faithful allies.* We've seen a nation wide movement against the banks and income inequality turn up in dozens of major US cities, only to have it violently crushed under the guise of sanitation and 'not being able to get to work'.*
We spend nearly half of our entire budget on military defense to fight enemies who use cell-phone detonation, 50 year old rifles and crock-pots to fight us* ,while our roads, bridges, electric grid, ports and communication networks are rotting and amassing an aging problem so monumental it will take centuries to repair.* We've seen an entire generation of children shackled to the banks through an education system forced upon them under the threat of being successful* with little promises and scant results all while being forced to pay into a safety net of social security that they will never see.* We have seen the size of the government grow every year for decades with no end in sight* while our 'elected' leaders are hand picked by elites of business to have their makeup perfected and suits ironed to speak to us about fringe off topic emotional issues that distract us from the fucking circus that is this country.*

Erich’s “What in the (cyber security) world is going on?” 03-02-17 edition

Since I got decent feedback on this, I'll post it up again this week. I will go ahead and copy/paste the contents instead of a link. This is a recap of things I have blogged about this week and some from twitter. I have to remove any pictures I use to post here, but they are in the original on my site if you want to see it in all of its glory. :)  
Enjoy, and as always, I'm open to feedback.
 
OK, this is a VERY packed edition of the weekly wrap up of security stuff.
 
Amazon S3 went down for a while
There was a collective cry of pain and the echoing sound of SLAs being violated when Amazon's S3 service went down. To top it off, their dashboard showed that all things were warm and fuzzy for quite some time. The official word was, that the outage is due to “high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1,”. By "high error rates", they meant all hell was breaking loose somewhere. This prompted a lot of fun on the Twitters as folks weren't so happy about things being up in flames around them. Imagine that.
 
Cloudpets leaked a bunch of data because they are idiots
I'm a bit peeved at this since my youngest daughter (and therefore me) has one of these. Luckily we didn't do much with it, but for those that have, recordings and info was leaked due to poor security. It even seems they were warned about in advance. This really does make sad because the little buggers are adorable and are a great idea for those who travel a lot, or are deployed.
 
Android Ransomware Wants Victims To Speak The Unlock Code
Lockdroid is throwing out a new twist. What could possibly go wrong here? Think about how often you have been annoyed by trying to get a machine to understand your voice. Imagine that after you have been ransomed. You are really screwed if you are Scottish (language warning)!
 
Torrent spread macOS ransomware spotted in the wild. Decryption doesn't work even if you pay
It looks like this Mac ransomware is spreading by posing as a software license crack in torrents. The bad news is, even if you pay, the dev doesn't have the key to decrypt the files. Another lesson to stay away from illegitimate software.
 
Spora Ransomware Chat Logs posted
This is an interesting read if you want to see what happens with the Spora ransomware chat help. Looks like no chance to negotiate price, but you can get some time.
 
Cloudbleed strikes: If You Use Any Of These Sites, Reset Your Password Now
Cloudflare had a memory leak, so if you went to any of the 5 million sites impacted between 09-22-2016 and 2-18-2017, your passwords, private messages, API keys, and other sensitive data may have been leaked. The list of affected sites is here.
 
American Senior Communities Falls For A W2 Scam. 17,000 Employees Affected
The scam happened in mid-January, but they didn't realize it until employees started having trouble filing returns in mid-February. This is the third Central Indiana employer in less than a month to fall for W2 scams. Monarch Beverage Co. and Scotty's Brewhouse also fell for it, with the employee at Monarch having done the same thing last year.
Sometimes I just want to shake people until they get it and put training and procedures in place to stop this sort of thing. It's really not that hard or expensive to implement.
W2 scams are no joke and really mess with the employees. Please be careful when handling this sort of info.
 
Do You Know What Your Cyber Insurance Really Covers?
This is just a reminder to be aware of what is and isn't covered by your cyber insurance. I highly recommend that you speak with an agent and do a review of the coverages BEFORE it hits the fan. I recently learned that while notification can be the most expensive part of a breach, it's often not covered by default in the policy. To add to that, cyber insurance is still in its infancy, so coverage is rarely standardized. Don't blame the insurance companies for this as it's a very new type of risk, it's your job to know, with their help, what you are paying for.
Take for example the P.F. Chang's breach. The $1.7 million cost of defense against customer lawsuits were covered, but the roughly $2 million in fees and fines imposed by credit card issuers to pay for notifications to cardholders, reissuance of credit cards, and other costs was not. It really pays to know what coverage you have.
 
Maine Credit Union Members Victims Of ATM Skimmer
Downeast Federal Credit Union found a skimmer on an ATM after several members called to report fraudulent charges. A skimmer was found on the ATM at the credit union’s Lincolnville Avenue branch. The Belfast Police Department has checked all Downeast FCU ATM machines and found no additional skimmers.
 
Ransomware recovery time is longer and more expensive than most think
Here are some pretty ugly numbers and a look in to why I am so obsessed with helping people avoid infection. The sad part is, you can protect yourself pretty well with basic "security 101" stuff like segmenting the network, "least privilege" access, weapons-grade backups and quality awareness training/simulated phishing. You don't need to burn money to protect yourself.
 
Roxana Police Department is done cleaning up after ransomware attacks
I swear, small town police departments can't wait to get hit by ransomware. I keep seeing it over and over again. In this case, "the work of sophisticated hackers who seek out vulnerabilities in digital networks, enter computer systems and encrypt important data..." (a.k.a. a piece of malware sent in a phishing email) was inconvenient rather than crippling. Based on the article and the lack of desire to share any info, along with the sensationalizing of the attack above, I'd say they are pretty embarrassed about it.
 
Madison, WI Requires “Unique Locking Devices” On Gas Pumps Due To Skimmers
I can't say that I like a lot of government involvement and additional regulations, but I appreciate that they are trying to stop the issue. It's far too easy for folks to install skimmers and while this doesn't solve the issue or counter skimmer overlays, it does take a step to help. Locally here in Florida, I have seen attendants at more than one Speedway station checking the pumps daily and putting on tamper seals. I have told them I appreciated the effort.
 
VISA warns for Flokibot Spear Phishing Infections
So, it looks like a new malware variant identified as “Flokibot” is hitting the Caribbean and LATAM. The malware is focused on point-of-sale (PoS) devices and, like so many other types of malware, is being spread predominantly by phishing email. I will be personally volunteering to go look at this threat, especially in the Caribbean, on behalf of my company. It may take a while to investigate. You know, weeks, maybe months...
