Bitcoin ATM without permanent location?

I've been looking at these Bittellers and quite frankly I want one. I've been in the vending machine business for so long and the vending machines that cost $3 per transaction are the holy grails that people buy when they "make it" absolute freaking gold mines. $3 per transaction is nice, but what's nicer is charging people a percentage of the entire withdraw and them actually paying it! (bitcoin atm)

So here's my question; how would one of these do at a flea market or something owner attended like that? I don't trust something the size of a toaster that costs $600 and has 2k worth of bitcoin in it to not sprout legs. Just personal experience as to unattended things sprouting legs.
I've seen these things at flea markets on the Bitcoin ATM locator, but I'm wondering if the locator is the driving force behind sales or if people are willing to walk by and either add Bitcoin to their existing wallet or try it out because they've heard of it.
Also, the average fee for these things is 6.8% WHY WHY WHY are people actually paying that? The only thing I can think of is the tor users who don't want their id attached to anything.

Thanks!

NPR parroting FDA fearmongering

Copy and pasted to remove a vendor reference. Not terrible article, but they're still parroting the lies. It's pretty disingenuous to offer up the story of one kid that clearly had major substance abuse problems as the "other side".
Side comment / vent -- I feel censoring regular mainstream news stories just because it breaks the no vendor rule is nuts. If anything the story should be allowed but comments locked.

The Kratom Debate: Helpful Herb Or Dangerous Drug?

Americans know the dangers of drugs such as morphine and heroin. But what about a supplement that acts in the brain a bit like an opiate and is available in many places to kids — even from vending machines.

Kratom, an herb that's abundant, legal in most states and potentially dangerous, is the subject of an ongoing debate over its risks and benefits.

Usually, the leaf, which comes from a tropical Southeast Asian tree, is chewed, brewed or crushed into a bitter green powder. The chemicals in the herb interact with different types of receptors in the brain — some that respond to opioids, and others to stimulants. Often sold in the U.S. in a processed form — as pills, capsules or extracts — a small amount of kratom can perk you up, while a large dose has a sedative effect.

Some people who have struggled with an opioid addiction and switched to kratom swear the substance salvaged their health, livelihood and relationships.

But the federal Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Administration worry that kratom carries the risk of physical and psychological dependency and, in some people, addiction. The FDA warns consumers not to use kratom, and the DEA threatened to prohibit kratom's sale and use in the U.S. (outside of research) in 2016; advocates and lawmakers subsequently pushed back, and the stricter scheduling of kratom that would have prompted that sort of ban never occurred. These days, the DEA lists it as a drug of concern.

Linda Kline, 33, based in Reno, Nev., sells kratom for a living. She says her several stores throughout the West have given her a new purpose in life. And while she herself doesn't have an opioid dependency, she credits kratom with turning around her mental health.

"I went from feeling desperate and hopeless to finding an alternative where I had full control over how I felt," she says.

She used to be paralyzed by anxiety and panic attacks. When her insurance carrier threatened to cut her Prozac prescription, she felt desperate. A friend suggested kratom, so she picked some up at a smoke shop.

"It almost feels like you're having just a little glass of wine," Kline says. "It's really relaxing. There's no melting of the walls."

The new habit cost about $6 a day — less than a glass of wine or fancy cup of coffee. But Kline says she couldn't always find a high-quality supply. The FDA has recalled dozens of salmonella-tainted products sold online or in convenience stores. The agency has also found toxic heavy metals in kratom supplements.

That's one reason Kline started her own chic boutiques, \redacted*, devoted exclusively to kratom products that, she says, are all lab tested to ensure purity. She just opened her fifth location in less than two years. The shops offer 15 kratom strains at outlets in California, Idaho and Nevada.*

Though Kline's website has a disclaimer that her products have not been evaluated by the FDA and "are not intended to cure, treat or prevent any disease/illness," some of her clients' online Yelp reviews claim kratom has dramatically relieved their chronic pain, insomnia, restless legs syndrome and more.

Potential dangers

Glowing reviews like that haunt Mateo Martinez.

"My brother believed the marketing of kratom — that it was a natural herbal supplement that could provide you with the same benefits of an opioid without the risks," Mateo says.

Mateo's younger brother, Marco, struggled with an opioid addiction in high school. Mateo describes Marco as a charismatic, creative teen, passionate about video games, cartoons and anime. Marco got hooked on painkillers, Mateo says, after his dentist pulled his wisdom teeth.

"He was using them in a way that wasn't just for treating pain," Mateo says.

Email receipts show Marco used bitcoin to also buy Vicodin and fentanyl on the dark web.

Eventually Marco wanted to kick his opioid addiction and saw testimonials on YouTube and Reddit that promised that kratom could be a way out. Soon Marco was popping kratom capsules multiple times a day.

During his freshman year at the University of California, Davis, the 19-year-old started hyperventilating regularly. The incidents worsened, becoming seizure-like episodes and ending in trips to the emergency room. During each hospitalization, the doctors were stumped. No one thought to test for kratom.

Marco died in his UC Davis dorm in February 2018, late on a Sunday night. The toxicology report listed "acute mitragynine intoxication" — a chemical constituent of kratom — as the cause of death.

"I think kratom needs to come with a much more serious caution that it is not harmless," Mateo says. "I'm very heartbroken."

In a recent 18-month period, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 90 kratom overdoses, although most involved a combination of other substances too.

Slim science, so far

"The data to support either the benefits or the harms for kratom is really, really poor," says C. Michael White, head of the Department of Pharmacy Practice at the University of Connecticut. "A lot of the information we have comes from single-case reports."

FDA Orders An Unprecedented Recall After Kratom Company Ignored Its Requests
THE TWO-WAY
FDA Orders An Unprecedented Recall After Kratom Company Ignored Its Requests
White says that animal studies suggest kratom could be an effective pain reliever, but the collection of human data has only just begun. He says scientists need to conduct a lot more research before the appropriate level of regulation is clear. White recently argued in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy that the safest place for kratom is behind pharmacy counters, for adults only, but with no prescription required.

McClain Haddow, spokesperson for the American Kratom Association, agrees that the product should be sold only to people over age 18.

"We would like vendors to register their product with the FDA and get a chemical analysis from a certified lab to insure the only ingredient is the naturally occurring alkaloid in the kratom plant," Haddow says. "Some manufacturers are spiking products with fentanyl, heroin or morphine to give users a high."

Dr. Scott Steiger, deputy medical director of the opiate treatment outpatient program at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, says he doesn't know how to advise patients who want to use kratom.

"I tell them I just don't know enough on the basis of science to tell them whether it's a great idea or not," says Steiger, who is also an associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.

The DEA describes kratom as an addictive substance that causes hallucinations, delusion and confusion.

"I have seen that people who use kratom end up having a very hard time stopping the use of it," says Steiger.

His patients report withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, sweats, aches and pains, loose stool, tearing and dysphoria. There is growing concern about kratom's effects on the heart and liver.

Steiger emphasizes that doctors have evidence-based treatments like buprenorphine and methadone to help people with an opioid addiction. He doesn't recommend self-medicating with kratom until more research is available.

"We just don't know enough about this chemical and the long-term use of it to know whether experimenting would lead to complications," Steiger says.

List of Physical Stores where you can Buy or Sell bitcoin

There are a number of foreign currency exchanges and other places where there's a "storefront"/branch and an actual teller or other staff where you can just walk up and do a bitcoin buy and/or sell. But I don't think there's ever been a list of them compiled. Lots of location discoveries get shared on social media, like this one, bu there is just no comprehensive list anywhere. So that's what I'ld like to do here. If you know of a location please comment with the name or some details.
Physical stores and Trading Spaces
Europe, Middle East, and Africa:
North America:
Asia-Pacific:
Vouchers (retail)
Gift Cards
Vending
Hardware wallet sales locations (Note: It's always more secure to buy direct from the manufacturer)
There are also over-the counter (OTC) traders, who may or may not have a fixed location, but are not considered to be "physical stores":

Cool news! We reached 100 Bitcoin ATMs worldwide.

Number of Bitcoin machines increases quite fast nowadays. We reached the first milestone of 100 ATMs installed (at least the ones which I found on internet). And this is all in less than 8 months, assuming the first one was installed in the end of October 2013 in Vancouver. Btw looks like Vancouver is the city with most Bitcoin ATM installations as of today. Hope other cities will take this as an example.
Bitcoin ATM locations could be checked on the map. Also there are nice charts about the growth rate of Bitcoin ATM installations per different vendors.
Hope the site would be useful for tracking the locations of Bitcoin ATMs. Any feedback and new locations messages would be really appreciated!

[Discussion] Regarding LINE Score (I don't think it's social credit.)

I saw some interesting discussion about Line Score in an earlier thread, and thought I'd write what I knew about it.
For those of you still unaware, LINE is a Japanese Internet service offering... well, lots of stuff. Messaging, social media, wallets (both cash and Bitcoin) can link up with your bank, platform for mobile games, Uber-style ride hailing, manga self-publishing platform, music streaming service, etc, etc. Everyone in Japan uses it. Everyone. Like, it's available on flip phones, everyone. LINE has, for the past few years, offered rewards for participating in promotional events. Say I use LINE during a promotion, I can get a LINE credit, scan my phone at a vending machine, and get a free drink or something. LINE is pervasive in a way even Facebook isn't.
LINE is owned by NAVER Corporation, a Korean mega-corp (irony!) that first became powerful in the Internet space in 1991 after basically single-handedly building the consumer-facing Korean Internet. Recognizing that the Japanese Internet was a different animal, they quickly introduced such services as Matome and established LINE as a tailor-made solution for the Japanese Internet and were rewarded by the market to this day. Today, LINE seeks to expand its influence not just in its home market of Japan, but over much of greater East Asia, including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, etc. (For... understandable reasons, Korea gets a different version called KakaoTalk.)
In the past few years, LINE has positioned itself hard as a fintech company, coinciding with a push by the Japanese government to have Tokyo internationally recognized as the place to do business with digital money. While Satoshi's identity remains unknown, it is a Japanese name. And Japan leads the way in practical applications of Bitcoin, things like fungible and secure digital cash as an alternative to credit cards (very cool), contactless payments (developed there in the '90s) etc, etc. And as the rest of the world catches up with regards to credit cards, the emphasis has been more and more on security, privacy, crypto, that kind of stuff.
Here's where LINE Score comes in. LINE operates a virtual wallet, which can contain cash and the like, as well as links to credit cards. With Facebook Libra and this bullshit going on in the West, Yahoo Japan announced it would, in concert with NTT and Mizuho, begin offering personal loans based on a... personal credit score. LINE, which has partnered with Mizuho Corporation, Mizuho Bank and Oricorp to announce LINE Credit, (think a regular bank) is also now launching a service called LINE Pocket Money, essentially a way to get small loans directly to your LINE wallet. No muss, no fuss; hit "Apply" in the app and get a notification in a few minutes with your approval status and have the funds dropped in right away.
From what I can tell, this score seems to be the equivalent of a very strict loan approval officer who asks to see your purchase history before approving the loan. It does not seem to be anything along the lines of the evil bullshit China is doing where you're banned from buying food if you don't snitch on your neighbors. The things LINE looks at, as well as the uses of the score, seem almost purely financial, no messages, no location, no photo uploads, just purchases and app usage, and do not even take into account cash or Bitcoin deliberately spent from outside LINE, a trivial thing to do.
The extra rewards, from what I can tell, are luxury goods rentals and a chance to see Ni no Kuni: The Movie early, which, honestly, seem like the kind of rewards a high end credit card would give an American for a high FICO score.
Also, if LINE does try some fucky shit here, and starts reading people's secure communications, which they could, I expect the Japanese government and other Japanese mega-corps to get involved right away.
>inb4 LINE shill
Don't get me wrong, I don't like the idea of rewarding users for being tracked; I think it's very creepy. I also think that LINE is more responsible with data than Facebook is and that this ultimately will not lead to the kind of dystopian nightmare we see in China because of how the Japanese economy works. For now.
TL;DR The Verge is so busy salivating over the idea of Japan being shackled to a Chinese credit score that they didn't pay attention to the goddamn presentation because their Tokyo bureau is some pasty retard with bad Japanese.

LIVE Beijing Conference June 22, 2017: English Translation

Me and my partner are going to do English play by play here. Tickets were around 570 each, so if you found this helpful , please donate.
2:10 Checked in. Around 100 guests attending so far. Conference should officially start in 20 mins.
2:30 Conference started. Currently in the Microsoft Beijing Office Lobby. Just introductions so far. The video trailer they played before the conference was quite impressive and in English.
2:32 srikanth Raju is speaking in English. You guys are good for this part. Big point: Microsoft believes in a heterogeneous Blockchain environment for Azure. Mentioned​ Ethereum specifically coexisting with antshares.
2:41 Skipped Jiang Li, Microsoft senior consultant's section for some reason.
2:45 Feng han is talking about the rise of alipay and transactions becoming electronic. Believes that full automation is the next step. Alibaba is still only half automated in their logistics. Huawei is interested in building smart cities, and will need blockchain. Note: they aren't announcing a partnership. Just talking about it.
2:51 Feng han talking about current internet infrastructure not being safe for the futures smart infrastructure. Then talked about a class offered by a genius cryptography professor, wangxiaoyun at tsinghua. Made a joke about 300x returns since ICO.
2:57 Hongfei Da. Talking about bitcoin and history of crypto. Now talking about founding of Antshares. Discussing dBFT and consensus briefly. Now talking about ICO. State of AntShares: 432 nodes, 1058300 blocks, main env running for 150 days. 352 stars on GitHub. LOL talking about this subreddit specifically now. Coinmarketcap ranking.
All assets will be digitized. Two categories: 1. Proof of existence is on the blockchain. 2. Off chain physical assets like IDs, bikeshare locks, intellectual property.
Spirit of blockchain isn't decentralization. It is transparency and fairness via publicly agreed upon rules and data.
Mantra: digital asset + digital ID + smart contract = smart economy.
REBRANDING: NEO smart economy. Green logo
Neo contracts with C#, Java/kotlin, python, go
NeoX is like an interledger protocol
NeoQ is quantum safe encryption
NeoFS is a new database layer
Emphasized ecosystem partnership with bancor agrello matchpool
Missed some points because too fast. Will go back later.
3:28 innospace CEO talking. Selected AntShares to join a pool of 10 companies out of 800 applicants. Best companies get 100x growth. Talked about Neo contracts active dev community and emphasized fintrch fundamental paper.
3:35 Alex norta from agrello. English speaking. Introducing the agrello platform currently. Announced new white paper finished today and ICO occurring now.
3:43 Adam from Coindash. Marketing Coindash as a onestop crypto portfolio that enables social trading and facilitates ICOs. Gives test runs for ICOs and let's you gauge interest. Announcing foray into China with close partnership with NEST partnership.
3:59 they made a reference to the matrix where they all pushed buttons and the screen said, WAKE UP NEO
4:00 break for 30 mins
4:31 restarting. CTO of AntShares speaking. Explaining smart contracts. Telling a story about Coke vending machine software executing a smart contract, except it ate his money because of a malicious party blocking the coin entry. Blockchain is necessary to allow smart contracts to be executed fairly.
Neo is different from Eth and fabric because it has static contract calls, deterministic blockchain network calls, and uses oracle's instead of internet API calls. Example, different nodes will have different Google search results based off of IP location.
NeoVM vs EthVM vs Docker Dyanmic sharding for NeoVM makes parallel processing scale better than EVM which has static sharding. Variables in NeoVM are determined beforehand and then the sharding is done before computation as opposed to EVM which divides work inflexibly.
EVM has high coupling (bad). NVM has low coupling like docker. Execution of contracts depends too much on the nodes and blockchain. This point wasn't too clear. Coupling seems to be a concept that people don't talk about often. Sounds like he was saying that you need to run eth smart contracts on a test blockchain environment while NeoVM allows you to test and run code independent of blockchain.
Microsoft offers IDE plugins and compilers to help people develop on the Neo platform.
Digital certificate issuance and asset digitization are supported in Neo but not inherently in Eth.
Storage layer for contracts is built into Neo. You can give authorization for others to read or write your contract storage space. Also, if your contract has a bug, you can take the data and migrate it to a patched contract. Lastly, allows rental of storage space for contracts. No support for any of the three points above in EVM.
Giving example of locking an account for a period of time. Showing decentralized domains. Sounds a lot like Eth name service.
5:21 bijie tech CEO. Talking about Binance ICO. Introducing the Binance team. Binance is a coin to coin centralized exchange. Made a joke about not wanting to ICO but did it after seeing everyone elses valuations.
5:35 fangzhou charity entrepreneur. Became a multimillionaire after getting some ANS.
Money is freedom. Now wants to give charity loans to kids that need an operation but parents don't have the money. Because of new Chinese laws only 113 out of 500 NGOs can receive donation money. Therefore the market for charity is undersupplied by organizations that can use the money.
5:46 xiaobai medical founder
No fixed location, employees or resources. Wants to make a medical system where people record their illnesses and compare outcomes with other patients to determine what is the best treatment. Can also match patients with doctors. Sounds like a combo of ZocDoc and patientory.
5:55 nest smart fund founder
Problems of most funds are lack of liquidity, inability to participate in the invested company, and high management cost.
DAO on ethereum was hacked, but NEST wants to do what DAO does but more safely and more transparently. They choose C# ( made a joke about being at Microsoft and using C#).
Going to make a nest coin that is redeemable for some of the coins that the project backs.
.................................
Questions:
what's going to happen to ANS?
AntShares will retire and get redistributed as NEO in the new wallet software. You don't have to do anything. No reissue so investors don't get screwed. Exchanges will get contacted automatically.
How many devs do you have now?
2 full time devs. They are going to offer NEO bounties on code and hire more.
New exchange announcement?
Binance
.................................
DONE

Freedom Dividend and Housing - Business Idea?

Cross posted from yanggang Delete if not appropriate.
So... one of the attacks that is often launched against the FD is the idea that rent would go up by $1,000. Obviously, this is wrong for many reasons the Yang Gang has discussed. I just wonder if there could possibly another argument and business idea stemming to fight this?
Personally, I wonder if it would be possibly to setup a freedom dividend basic needs housing. For this, I am picturing living units that would provide basic needs, in exchange for the freedom dividend? What do I mean by this? I am definitely not an evil guy and would actually say this would combat the idea of a landlord jacking up rent, this would be housing that is not a non-profit but a business that would hopefully generate a steady income and put humanity first.
Ideally, these units would be structured as livable apartment complexes that feature 1,2,3 and 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom must be accompanied by another 18 year old+ adult and adds $1K in cost. Kids would coast an extra $200-$500 With this, utilities and 2 basic meals per day would be covered; hopefully with features built in, so subletting isn't possible, a person can't take advantage of included utilities and mine bitcoin all day, etc. I envision automation dispensing pre-packaged, low cost ($2-$3), nutritionally healthy meals for people to use their monthly credits on. I say 2 meals per day, since this would not be meant to completely provide for people and make them solely dependent on the FD. This would still require people to work to fulfill other needs/wants. I picture the meal system as a set of vending machines that heat pre-packed breakfast, lunch or dinner packs. People would use NFC cards/app to choose their meals. Obviously this would include a lot more work than it seems and thought, but it would be interesting to give people that food/housing foundation in exchange for the FD. This would not be meant to take people's FD but provide fair basic needs. Obviously this pricing be adjusted with the udnerstanding that people would receive the FD. So, if a place has houses for sale for $50K, you'd want to lower the amount of the FD that's taken or provide more amenities like a doorman (or robot??) more meals, entertainment, etc to charge more.
This is highly likely not to work in LA, SF, NY, DC, etc, but there are many places where this could be a possibility with the right investors and the capital injection from the FD. Any thoughts? I picture this also helping communities that are being deserted in exchange for places mentioned above.
Hypothetical: Akron, OH. I pulled cost of living from here: https://www.niche.com/places-to-live/akron-summit-oh/
So, let's say a 100 person unit is created and offers 3 housing units; 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom. Let's say 50 people (20 families?) move from Boston, because housing is too expensive and they have never been able to move before, due to cost and fear of not having economic stability or a job in the cheaper location. 35 of those people moving can receive the FD, the rest are under 18. If they were to effectively move into the housing complex, they would immediately bring the investoowner $35K/month, without taking into account children's cost or possible reduced cost to compete with the housing market. With that, they would bring the city of Akron $420,000/year of economic stimulus. The people would not have to worry about not having a place to live or food to put on the table. With that said, these families would want to be able to furnish their units, entertain themselves, buy school supplies for kids, etc. This would require them to get jobs. My idea is that even if there are no jobs, people would be more willing to venture into business ideas; mini golf, bowling, clubs, art, etc. Let's say people don't want to venture into new businesses, the local McDonalds, dollar stores, etc need people to work minimum jobs. Even at $7.25/hr that buying power is much higher than it would be in Boston. Since there would also likely be more children in the area, you'd have a higher need for teachers and administrators. This is also not taking into account an increase demand for CREATIVITY! People could finally pursue those life long dreams of writing a book, painting, creating digital works and selling those online or giving them away with advertising as a source of income.
That last setup was a bit confusing and not fully developed...but anyone else have thoughts and wants to jump in? Any investors thinking about this? :) This is definitely an idea that I would not mind having stolen!

Emergent Coding FAQ

Background reading
  1. https://youtu.be/-MMQUspVduo ELI5 with pictures.
  2. https://youtu.be/ZSkZxOJ5HPA Hello World using Emergent Coding
  3. https://codevalley.com/whitepaper.pdf This document treats Emergent coding from a philosophical perspective. It has a good introduction, description of the tech and is followed by two sections on justifications from the perspective of Fred Brooks No Silver Bullet criteria and an industrialization criteria.
  4. Mark Fabbro's presentation from the Bitcoin Cash City Conference which outlines the motivation, basic mechanics, and usage of Bitcoin Cash in reproducing the industrial revolution in the software industry.
  5. Building the Bitcoin Cash City presentation highlighting how the emergent coding group of companies fit into the adoption roadmap of North Queensland.
  6. Forging Chain Metal by Paul Chandler CEO of Aptissio, one of startups in the emergent coding space and which secured a million in seed funding last year.
  7. Bitcoin Cash App Exploration A series of Apps that are some of the first to be built by emergent coding and presented, and in the case of Cashbar, demonstrated at the conference.
  8. A casual Bitcoin Cash interview that touches on emergent coding, tech park, merchant adoption and much more.
How does Emergent Coding prevent developer capture?
A developer's Agent does not know what project they are contributing to and is thus paid for the specific contribution. The developer is controlling the terms of the payment rather than the alternative, an employer with an employment agreement.
Why does Emergent Coding use Bitcoin BCH?
  1. Both emergent coding and Bitcoin BCH are decentralized: As emergent coding is a decentralized development environment consisting of Agents providing respective design services, each contract received by an agent requires a BCH payment. As Agents are hosted by their developer owners which may be residing in one of 150 countries, Bitcoin Cash - an electronic peer-to-peer electronic cash system - is ideal to include a developer regardless of geographic location.
  2. Emergent coding will increase the value of the Bitcoin BCH blockchain: With EC, there are typically many contracts to build an application (Cashbar was designed with 10000 contracts or so). EC adoption will increase the value of the Bitcoin BCH blockchain in line with this influx of quality economic activity.
  3. Emergent coding is being applied to BCH software first: One of the first market verticals being addressed with emergent coding is Bitcoin Cash infrastructure. We are already seeing quality applications created using emergent coding (such as the HULA, Cashbar, PH2, vending, ATMs etc). More apps and tools supporting Bitcoin cash will attract more merchants and business to BCH.
  4. Emergent coding increases productivity: Emergent coding increases developer productivity and reduces duplication compared to other software development methods. Emergent coding can provide BCH devs with an advantage over other coins. A BCH dev productivity advantage will accelerate Bitcoin BCH becoming the first global currency.
  5. Emergent coding produces higher quality binaries: Higher quality software leads to a more reliable network.

1. Who/what is Code Valley? Aptissio? BCH Tech Park? Mining and Server Complex?
Code Valley Corp Pty Ltd is the company founded to commercialize emergent coding technology. Code Valley is incorporated in North Queensland, Australia. See https://codevalley.com
Aptissio Australia Pty Ltd is a company founded in North Queensland and an early adopter of emergent coding. Aptissio is applying EC to Bitcoin BCH software. See https://www.aptissio.com
Townsville Technology Precincts Pty Ltd (TTP) was founded to bring together partners to answer the tender for the Historic North Rail Yard Redevelopment in Townsville, North Queensland. The partners consist of P+I, Conrad Gargett, HF Consulting, and a self-managed superannuation fund(SMSF) with Code Valley Corp Pty Ltd expected to be signed as an anchor tenant. TTP answered a Townsville City Council (TCC) tender with a proposal for a AUD$53m project (stage 1) to turn the yards into a technology park and subsequently won the tender. The plan calls for the bulk of the money is to be raised in the Australian equity markets with the city contributing $28% for remediation of the site and just under 10% from the SMSF. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid 2020 and be competed two years later.
Townsville Mining Pty Ltd was set up to develop a Server Complex in the Kennedy Energy Park in North Queensland. The site has undergone several studies as part of a due diligence process with encouraging results for its competitiveness in terms of real estate, power, cooling and data.
  1. TM are presently in negotiations with the owners of the site and is presently operating under an NDA.
  2. The business model calls for leasing "sectors" to mining companies that wish to mine allowing companies to control their own direction.
  3. Since Emergent Coding uses the BCH rail, TM is seeking to contribute to BCH security with an element of domestic mining.
  4. TM are working with American partners to lease one of the sectors to meet that domestic objective.
  5. The site will also host Emergent Coding Agents and Code Valley and its development partners are expected to lease several of these sectors.
  6. TM hopes to have the site operational within 2 years.
2. What programming language are the "software agents" written in.
Agents are "built" using emergent coding. You select the features you want your Agent to have and send out the contracts. In a few minutes you are in possession of a binary ELF. You run up your ELF on your own machine and it will peer with the emergent coding and Bitcoin Cash networks. Congratulations, your Agent is now ready to accept its first contract.
3. Who controls these "agents" in a software project
You control your own Agents. It is a decentralized development system.
4. What is the software license of these agents. Full EULA here, now.
A license gives you the right to create your own Agents and participate in the decentralized development system. We will publish the EULA when we release the product.
5. What kind of software architecture do these agents have. Daemons Responding to API calls ? Background daemons that make remote connection to listening applications?
Your Agent is a server that requires you to open a couple of ports so as to peer with both EC and BCH networks. If you run a BCH full node you will be familiar with this process. Your Agent will create a "job" for each contract it receives and is designed to operate thousands of jobs simultaneously in various stages of completion. It is your responsibility to manage your Agent and keep it open for business or risk losing market share to another developer capable of designing the same feature in a more reliable manner (or at better cost, less resource usage, faster design time etc.). For example, there is competition at every classification which is one reason emergent coding is on a fast path for improvement.
It is worth reiterating here that Agents are only used in the software design process and do not perform any role in the returned project binary.
6. What is the communication protocol these agents use.
The protocol is proprietary and is part of your license.
7. Are the agents patented? Who can use these agents?
It is up to you if you want to patent your Agent the underlying innovation behind emergent coding is _feasible_ developer specialization. Emergent coding gives you the ability to contribute to a project without revealing your intellectual property thus creating prospects for repeat business; It renders software patents moot.
Who uses your Agents? Your Agents earn you BCH with each design contribution made. It would be wise to have your Agent open for business at all times and encourage everyone to use your design service.
8. Do I need to cooperate with Code Valley company all of the time in order to deploy Emergent Coding on my software projects, or can I do it myself, using documentation?
It is a decentralized system. There is no single point of failure. Code Valley intends to defend the emergent coding ecosystem from abuse and bad actors but that role is not on your critical path.
9. Let's say Electron Cash is an Emergent Coding project. I have found a critical bug in the binary. How do I report this bug, what does Jonald Fyookball need to do, assuming the buggy component is a "shared component" puled from EC "repositories"?
If you built Electron Cash with emergent coding it will have been created by combining several high level wallet features designed into your project by their respective Agents. Obviously behind the scenes there are many more contracts that these Agents will let and so on. For example the Cashbar combines just 16 high level Point-of-Sale features but ultimately results in more than 10,000 contracts in toto. Should one of these 10,000 make a design error, Jonald only sees the high level Agents he contracted. He can easily pinpoint which of these contractors are in breach. Similarly this contractor can easily pinpoint which of its sub-contractors is in breach and so on. The offender that breached their contract wherever in the project they made their contribution, is easily identified. For example, when my truck has a warranty problem, I do not contact the supplier of the faulty big-end bearing, I simply take it back to Mazda who in turn will locate the fault.
Finally "...assuming the buggy component is a 'shared component' puled from EC 'repositories'?" - There are no repositories or "shared component" in emergent coding.
10. What is your licensing/pricing model? Per project? Per developer? Per machine?
Your Agent charges for each design contribution it makes (ie per contract). The exact fee is up to you. The resulting software produced by EC is unencumbered. Code Valley's pricing model consists of a seat license but while we are still determining the exact policy, we feel the "Valley" (where Agents advertise their wares) should charge a small fee to help prevent gaming the catalogue and a transaction fee to provide an income in proportion to operations.
11. What is the basic set of applications I need in order to deploy full Emergent Coding in my software project? What is the function of each application? Daemons, clients, APIs, Frontends, GUIs, Operating systems, Databases, NoSQLs? A lot of details, please.
There's just one. You buy a license and are issued with our product called Pilot. You run Pilot (node) up on your machine and it will peer with the EC and BCH networks. You connect your browser to Pilot typically via localhost and you're in business. You can build software (including special kinds of software like Agents) by simply combining available features. Pilot allows you to specify the desired features and will manage the contracts and decentralized build process. It also gives you access to the "Valley" which is a decentralized advertising site that contains all the "business cards" of each Agent in the community, classified into categories for easy search.
If we are to make a step change in software design, inventing yet another HLL will not cut it. As Fred Brooks puts it, an essential change is needed.
12. How can I trust a binary when I can not see the source?
The Emergent Coding development model is very different to what you are use to. There are ways of arriving at a binary without Source code.
The Agents in emergent coding design their feature into your project without writing code. We can see the features we select but can not demonstrate the source as the design process doesn't use a HLL.
The trust model is also different. The bulk of the testing happens _before_ the project is designed not _after_. Emergent Coding produces a binary with very high integrity and arguably far more testing is done in emergent coding than in incumbent methods you are used to.
In emergent coding, your reputation is built upon the performance of your Agent.
If your Agent produces substandard features, you are simply creating an opportunity for a competitor to increase their market share at your expense.
Here are some points worth noting regarding bad actor Agents:
  1. An Agent is a specialist and in emergent coding is unaware of the project they are contributing to. If you are a bad actor, do you compromise every contract you receive? Some? None?
  2. Your client is relying on the quality of your contribution to maintain their own reputation. Long before any client will trust your contributions, they will have tested you to ensure the quality is at their required level. You have to be at the top of your game in your classification to even win business. This isn't some shmuck pulling your routine from a library.
  3. Each contract to your agent is provisioned. Ie you advertise in advance what collaborations you require to complete your design. There is no opportunity for a "sign a Bitcoin transaction" Agent to be requesting "send an HTTP request" collaborations.
  4. Your Agent never gets to modify code, it makes a design contribution rather than a code contribution. There is no opportunity to inject anything as the mechanism that causes the code to emerge is a higher order complexity of all Agent involvement.
  5. There is near perfect accountability in emergent coding. You are being contracted and paid to do the design. Every project you compromise has an arrow pointed straight at you should it be detected even years later.
Security is a whole other ball game in emergent coding and current rules do not necessarily apply.
13. Every time someone rebuilds their application, do they have to pay over again for all "design contributions"? (Or is the ability to license components at fixed single price for at least a limited period or even perpetually, supported by the construction (agent) process?)
You are paying for the design. Every time you build (or rebuild) an application, you pay the developers involved. They do not know they are "rebuilding". This sounds dire but its costs far less than you think and there are many advantages. Automation is very high with emergent coding so software design is completed for a fraction of the cost of incumbent design methods. You could perhaps rebuild many time before matching incumbent methods. Adding features is hard with incumbent methods "..very few late-stage additions are required before the code base transforms from the familiar to a veritable monster of missed schedules, blown budgets and flawed products" (Brooks Jr 1987) whereas with emergent coding adding a late stage feature requires a rebuild and hence seamless integration. With Emergent Coding, you can add an unlimited number of features without risking the codebase as there isn't one.
The second part of your question incorrectly assumes software is created from licensed components rather than created by paying Agents to design features into your project without any licenses involved.
14. In this construction process, is the vendor of a particular "design contribution" able to charge differential rates per their own choosing? e.g. if I wanted to charge a super-low rate to someone from a 3rd world country versus charging slightly more when someone a global multinational corporation wants to license my feature?
Yes. Developers set the price and policy of their Agent's service. The Valley (where your Agent is presently advertised) presently only supports a simple price policy. The second part of your question incorrectly assumes features are encumbered with licenses. A developer can provide their feature without revealing their intellectual property. A client has the right to reuse a developer's feature in another project but will find it uneconomical to do so.
15. Is "entirely free" a supported option during the contract negotiation for a feature?
Yes. You set the price of your Agent.
16. "There is no single point of failure." Right now, it seems one needs to register, license the construction tech etc. Is that going to change to a model where your company is not necessarily in that loop? If not, don't you think that's a single point of failure?
It is a decentralized development system. Once you have registered you become part of a peer-to-peer system. Code Valley has thought long and hard about its role and has chosen the reddit model. It will set some rules for your participation and will detect or remove bad actors. If, in your view, Code Valley becomes a bad actor, you have control over your Agent, private keys and IP, you can leave the system at any time.
17. What if I can't obtain a license because of some or other jurisdictional problem? Are you allowed to license the technology to anywhere in the world or just where your government allows it?
We are planning to operate in all 150 countries. As ec is peer-to-peer, Code Valley does not need to register as a digital currency exchange or the like. Only those countries banning BCH will miss out (until such times as BCH becomes the first global electronic cash system).
18.
For example the Cashbar combines just 16 high level Point-of-Sale features but ultimately results in more than 10,000 contracts in toto.
It seems already a reasonably complex application, so well done in having that as a demo.
Thank you.
19. I asked someone else a question about how it would be possible to verify whether an application (let's say one received a binary executable) has been built with your system of emergent consensus. Is this possible?
Yes of course. If you used ec to build an application, you can sign it and claim anything you like. Your client knows it came from you because of your signature. The design contributions making up the application are not signed but surprisingly there is still perfect accountability (see below).
20. I know it is possible to identify for example all source files and other metadata (like build environment) that went into constructing a binary, by storing this data inside an executable.
All metadata emergent coding is now stored offline. When your Agent completes a job, you have a log of the design agreements you made with your peers etc., as part of the log. If you are challenged at a later date for breaching a design contract, you can pull your logs to see what decisions you made, what sub-contracts were let etc. As every Agent has their own logs, the community as a whole has a completely trustless log of each project undertaken.
21. Is this being done with EC build products and would it allow the recipient to validate that what they've been provided has been built only using "design contributions" cryptographically signed by their providers and nothing else (i.e. no code that somehow crept in that isn't covered by the contracting process)?
The emergent coding trust model is very effective and has been proven in other industries. Remember, your Agent creates a feature in my project by actually combining smaller features contracted from other Agents, thus your reputation is linked to that of your suppliers. If Bosch makes a faulty relay in my Ford, I blame Ford for a faulty car not Bosch when my headlights don't work. Similarly, you must choose and vet your sub-contractors to the level of quality that you yourself want to project. Once these relationships are set up, it becomes virtually impossible for a bad actor to participate in the system for long or even from the get go.
22. A look at code generated and a surprising answer to why is every intermediate variable spilled?
Thanks to u/R_Sholes, this snippet from the actual code for: number = number * 10 + digitgenerated as a part of: sub read/integeboolean($, 0, 100) -> guess
; copy global to local temp variable 0x004032f2 movabs r15, global.current_digit 0x004032fc mov r15, qword [r15] 0x004032ff mov rax, qword [r15] 0x00403302 movabs rdi, local.digit 0x0040330c mov qword [rdi], rax ; copy global to local temp variable 0x0040330f movabs r15, global.guess 0x00403319 mov r15, qword [r15] 0x0040331c mov rax, qword [r15] 0x0040331f movabs rdi, local.num 0x00403329 mov qword [rdi], rax ; multiply local variable by constant, uses new temp variable for output 0x0040332c movabs r15, local.num 0x00403336 mov rax, qword [r15] 0x00403339 movabs rbx, 10 0x00403343 mul rbx 0x00403346 movabs rdi, local.num_times_10 0x00403350 mov qword [rdi], rax ; add local variables, uses yet another new temp variable for output 0x00403353 movabs r15, local.num_times_10 0x0040335d mov rax, qword [r15] 0x00403360 movabs r15, local.digit 0x0040336a mov rbx, qword [r15] 0x0040336d add rax, rbx 0x00403370 movabs rdi, local.num_times_10_plus_digit 0x0040337a mov qword [rdi], rax ; copy local temp variable back to global 0x0040337d movabs r15, local.num_times_10_plus_digit 0x00403387 mov rax, qword [r15] 0x0040338a movabs r15, global.guess 0x00403394 mov rdi, qword [r15] 0x00403397 mov qword [rdi], rax For comparison, an equivalent snippet in C compiled by clang without optimizations gives this output: imul rax, qword ptr [guess], 10 add rax, qword ptr [digit] mov qword ptr [guess], rax 
Collaborations at the byte layer of Agents result in designs that spill every intermediate variable.
Firstly, why this is so?
Agents from this early version only support one catch-all variable design when collaborating. Similar to a compiler when all registers contain variables, the compiler must make a decision to spill a register temporarily to main memory. The compiler would still work if it spilled every variable to main memory but would produce code that would be, as above, hopelessly inefficient.
However, by only supporting the catch-all portion of the protocol, the code valley designers were able to design, build and deploy these agents faster because an Agent needs fewer predicates in order to participate in these simpler collaborations.
The protocol involved however, can have many "Policies" besides the catch-all default policy (Agents can collaborate over variables designed to be on the stack, or, as is common for intermediate variables, designed to use a CPU register, and so forth).
This example highlights one of the very exciting aspects of emergent coding. If we now add a handful of additional predicates to a handful of these byte layer agents, henceforth ALL project binaries will be 10x smaller and 10x faster.
Finally, there can be many Agents competing for market share at each of classification. If these "gumby" agents do not improve, you can create a "smarter" competitor (ie with more predicates) and win business away from them. Candy from a baby. Competition means the smartest agents bubble to the top of every classification and puts the entire emergent coding platform on a fast path for improvement. Contrast this with incumbent libraries which does not have a financial incentive to improve. Just wait until you get to see our production system.
23. How hard can an ADD Agent be?
Typically an Agent's feature is created by combining smaller features from other Agents. The smallest features are so devoid of context and complexity they can be rendered by designing a handful of bytes in the project binary. Below is a description of one of these "byte" layer Agents to give you an idea how they work.
An "Addition" Agent creates the feature of "adding two numbers" in your project (This is an actual Agent). That is, it contributes to the project design a feature such that when the project binary is delivered, there will be an addition instruction somewhere in it that was designed by the contract that was let to this Agent.
If you were this Agent, for each contract you received, you would need to collaborate with peers in the project to resolve vital requirements before you can proceed to design your binary "instruction".
Each paid contract your Agent receives will need to participate in at least 4 collaborations within the design project. These are:
  1. Input A collaboration
  2. Input B collaboration
  3. Result collaboration
  4. Construction site collaboration
You can see from the collaborations involved how your Agent can determine the precise details needed to design its instruction. As part of the contract, the Addition Agent will be provisioned with contact details so it can join these collaborations. Your Agent must collaborate with other stakeholders in each collaboration to resolve that requirement. In this case, how a variable will be treated. The stakeholders use a protocol to arrive at an Agreement and share the terms of the agreement. For example, the stakeholders of collaboration “Input A” may agree to treat the variable as an signed 64bit integer, resolve to locate it at location 0x4fff2, or alternatively agree that the RBX register should be used, or agree to use one of the many other ways a variable can be represented. Once each collaboration has reached an agreement and the terms of that agreement distributed, your Agent can begin to design the binary instruction. The construction site collaboration is where you will exactly place your binary bytes.
The construction site protocol is detailed in the whitepaper and is some of the magic that allows the decentralized development system to deliver the project binary. The protocol consists of 3 steps,
  1. You request space in the project binary be reserved.
  2. You are notified of the physical address of your requested space.
  3. You delver the the binary bytes you designed to fill the reserved space.
Once the bytes are returned your Agent can remove the job from its work schedule. Job done, payment received, another happy customer with a shiny ADD instruction designed into their project binary.
Note:
  1. Observe how it is impossible for this ADD Agent to install a backdoor undetected by the client.
  2. Observe how the Agent isn’t linking a module, or using a HLL to express the binary instruction.
  3. Observe how with just a handful of predicates you have a working "Addition" Agent capable of designing the Addition Feature into a project with a wide range of collaboration agreements.
  4. Observe how this Agent could conceivably not even design-in an ADD instruction if one of the design time collaboration agreements was a literal "1" (It would design in an increment instruction). There is even a case where this Agent may not deliver any binary to build its feature into your project!
24. How does EC arrive at a project binary without writing source code?
Devs using EC combine features to create solutions. They don't write code. EC devs contract Agents which design the desired features into their project for a fee. Emergent coding uses a domain specific contracting language (called pilot) to describe the necessary contracts. Pilot is not a general purpose language. As agents create their features by similarly combining smaller features contracted from peer, your desired features may inadvertently result in thousands of contracts. As it is agents all the way down, there is no source code to create the project binary.
Traditional: Software requirements -> write code -> compile -> project binary (ELF).
Emergent coding: Select desired features -> contract agents -> project binary (ELF).
Agents themselves are created the same way - specify the features you want your agent to have, contract the necessary agents for those features and viola - agent project binary (ELF).
25. How does the actual binary code that agents deliver to each other is written?
An agent never touches code. With emergent coding, agents contribute features to a project, and leave the project binary to emerge as the higher-order complexity of their collective effort. Typically, agents “contribute” their feature by causing smaller features to be contributed by peers, who in turn, do likewise. By mapping features to smaller features delivered by these peers, agents ensure their feature is delivered to the project without themselves making a direct code contribution.
Peer connections established by these mappings serve to both incrementally extend a temporary project “scaffold” and defer the need to render a feature as a code contribution. At the periphery of the scaffold, features are so simple they can be rendered as a binary fragment with these binary fragments using the information embodied by the scaffold to guide the concatenation back along the scaffold to emerge as the project binary - hence the term Emergent Coding.
Note the scaffold forms a temporary tree-like structure which allows virtually all the project design contracts to be completed in parallel. The scaffold also automatically limits an agent's scope to precisely the resources and site for their feature. It is why it is virtually impossible for an agent to install a "back door" or other malicious code into the project binary.

Why I Am Holding LoMoCoin (LMC) (LoMoStar)

There are so many things I want to say about LoMoCoin/LoMoStar that I'm not sure if I'll be able to cover everything in one post.. Well, unless you want to read 20 pages.. Let's just see where this article takes us and go from there.. In order to understand why LoMoCoin is undervalued you must understand the market it's targeting.. In fact this is a difficult post to write because there is so much to cover, but I will do my best..
'Incentivized shopping' is a big deal in Asia.. In China, if you wanted a coupon for Burger King you simply open WeChat, follow burger king and within seconds you have access to coupons. This has been so ingrained in society that nearly every reputable business now has a WeChat account. On top of that, many businesses offer VIP cards or VIP memberships which gives you additional deals on your future visits.. When it comes to offline shopping, the creative battle to get people in the door is becoming ever more prevalent.
To see how LoMoCoin plays in the big picture we'll start with explaining the LoMoCoin (LMC) Blockchain and then we will follow up with the primary application, LoMoStar (the star of the show). In the end I hope those who read this can understand the scale of this project and don't under-estimate what we're dealing with here. In my opinion this asset has been undervalued for far too long and I believe its presence will be well known in the future.
About LoMoCoin (LMC)
"The built-in LoMoCoin (LMC) of LoMoStar is similar to Bitcoin, which is a cryptocurrency with real value based on our own blockchain technology. Compared with traditional cryptocurrencies, LMC inherits the advantages of the related currencies which includes that the total amount is limited and cannot be over-issued."
LoMoCoin is it's own blockchain and the consensus mechanism is Proof of Stake (PoS). Instead of a fixed interest rate like most currencies, LMC uses the coin age as a means to take part in the consensus process. The LMC blockchain supports cold staking. Functions such as a single private key address and multi-sig address are supported. It is also mentioned in the whitepaper that smart contracts will be integrated in the near future.
Now I know this stuff may sound like technical mumbo jumbo to you, but its important to know and well get to the more exciting stuff soon here.. In the meantime let's look at the LMC Blockchain.
The LMC Blockchain
The LoMoCoin (LMC) blockchain can be divided into 5 levels from a technical point of view.. (See whitepaper for full details.)
So think of it like LoMoCoin is the decentralized framework for the LoMoStar ecosystem.. (LoMoCoin was rebranded to LoMoStar in v2.0) So now that we have covered the technical details of LoMoCoin (LMC) let's take a look at the LoMoStar app..
What is LoMoStar?
LoMoStar is the main primary application built on the LMC blockchain (available on Android and iOS). When your talking about LoMoStar it's more then just getting discounts at local shops and collecting crypto on a map.. LoMoStar is a vast social ecosystem that evolves around people-to-people, people-to-asset, and people-to-organization (and vice versa). The vision set forward by the CEO 'Xiong Lijian' has been overlooked by nearly every investor.. (I say nearly because there's only a handful of people who actually research with an optimistic outlook on blockchain technology long term..) So before I begin, I would like to applaud the CEO Xiong Lijian for taking on a massive project which I believe will turn many people's dreams into a reality.
LoMoStar - Social Events Platform with Cryptocurrency
"LoMoStar will integrate ones geographical position with its virtual environment and will use cryptocurrencies as its social medium to introduce new forms of relationships with one another. Also, by allowing for global (group) interactions, LoMoStar will facilitate international social relationships. In addition, people can develop business relationships at LoMoStar to enhance the influence of individuals, increase brand awareness, and/or improve business development."
For example, in the LoMoStar app, I can geographically drop a red envelope that contains any cryptocurrency. Before I drop red envelopes I could include an image and a short message. Anyone who opens this red envelope will be rewarded with cryptocurrency and will automatically join my group. (You can quit a group after 48 hours).
Red Envelopes
"Airdrops of red envelopes, which contain cryptocurrencies, can be organized at certain geographical locations that have a sufficient density of users, for instance cities or popular public locations. Additionally, automated trading between users and investment opportunities will become available and people can use LoMoStar to perform many social related activities, such as marketing activities, group-related activities, organizing events, participating in treasure hunts, digital investments, and more. All these features enable LoMoStar to become a unique social and economic platform. The establishment of these social relationships and global interactions can fulfill both individual, group and corporate interests and desires, forming a win-win or multi-win situation."
For example, let's say there is a sporting event like the Super Bowl where a large gathering of people will attend. A corporation could Airdrop red envelopes specifically to this geographical location for sports fans to pick up. Or let's say a local festival wants more attendance they can arrange an airdrop at the festivals location. You can pretty much target any area that contains a sufficient density of users.
Users will use their own ingenuity to create new forms of social entertainment. (As outlined below in the whitepaper)
Peer-to-peer Cryptocurrency Trading
" LoMoStar supports using any cryptocurrency to conduct trading, whether it is for physical goods, services or digital assets. LoMoStars underlying technology will therefore enable peer-to-peer trading with one another."
The plan is to support any cryptocurrency to exchange for physical goods, services or digital assets. (LoMoStar hand selects and reviews each supported coin.) In addition LoMoStar allows messaging between users and groups with the ability to send/drop red envelopes.
Digital assets based on Location-based System (LBS)
"Through LoMoStar, people can also invest in many real-world businesses on certain geographical locations, such as retail, real estate, attractions, and more. LoMoStar will allow users to utilize cryptocurrency for investing in retail, real estate, attractions and other various immovable properties in order to gain profits."
This is a very ambitious vision and I like it... The thought of being able to invest in real-world businesses and assets using crypto is music to my ears. Let's look into this a little more and highlight some things from the whitepaper..
"By connecting users to each other in the virtual world and then to assets in the real world, LoMoStar creates a novel setting where unpredictable social and economic relationships can spontaneously flourish within user-created scenarios. This will promote the use of cryptocurrencies in the real world and allow completely new ecological models and scenarios to emerge."
Here is an example noted from the white paper.
"Taking the vending machines as an example, which is one of the most common automatic trading devices, the holder can divide the income rights of a predetermined period and then launch the installation address of the device on the LoMoStar map. The (1) the product service description, (2) investment price of the income rights after division, (3) income distribution overview, and (4) other related information will then also be given. There are other types of devices that work similarly as a vending machine (e.g. self- service photo machine, self-service massage chair, and/or a doll machine) that can be used as a similar example. If LoMoStar users are interested, they can use cryptocurrency to invest and purchase the rights of these devices on the virtual map and thereby allow the possibility to generate an income from their (virtual) investments."
So now you can see, LoMoStar is not 'Just a game where you pick up cryptocurrency on a map'. LoMoStar aims to promote the use of cryptocurrency in the real world by acting as a bridge connecting the two worlds - ultimately revealing the true value of cryptocurrency.
Functional Level of LoMoStar
"LoMoStar will also allow ICO's to integrate new blockchain projects. Only cryptocurrencies and projects with high investment value will be made available to our users."
Construction of the LoMoStar ecology.
"LoMoStar aims to integrate the physical world and the virtual world through the blockchain. The physical world lacks channels for democracy while the virtual blockchain world lacks social innovation. The goal is to bring these two worlds together."
The LoMoStar Team
When we look at the team, it is truly an impressive force that delivers results. Building a new social ecosystem requires engineers in all fronts. From developing blockchain technology to F5 Lab to the LoMoStar app for android and ios. Let's also not forget xStar.io the Digital Assets Exchange aimed to strengthen the LoMoStar ecosystem. The team is building all the essential components needed to improve asset liquidity and long-term asset stability.. the bottom line here is.. the team is quite large and well organized.
Last year in an interview with the LoMoStar CEO Xiong Lijian, he mentioned they had more than 30 people on the team.
"LoMoCoin’s core team has been working together since 2013 and has experienced the mining and trading of Bitcoin and Litecoin in the early days. We are also one of the first teams in China that begun R&D application and development of blockchain technology. At present, there are more than 30 people in our team and we have started to recruit talents all around the globe with the ability to settle in various countries and regions to jointly promote and help develop LoMoCoin."
Today they now have over 70 employees (so I hear) and are expecting to exceed 100 employees in the near future. Now since we are looking at the team, let's take a look at a few questions and answers from some interviews. (Interview links are posted in references.)
Interview Q&A from Xiong Lijian (CEO) / Taoji Zou (Chief Marketing Officer)
What kind of advantages will LMC have within the application in comparison to BTC/ETH/LTC, etc.? This is still unclear.
This can, for instance, be when ICO projects are promoted and only LMC holders will be able to participate. More than 10 projects have recently already discovered the value of LoMoStar and hope to promote and even accept LMC as an investment. We choose projects very selectively and they are still under review.
Can you tell us how XStar will help with the growth of LMC?
XStar is a trading platform that I and some other friends in the Chinese community have set up, not only to provide liquidity to LMC, but also because we are optimistic about the future of the blockchain industry. LoMoStar and XStar will be mutually reinforcing each other. Moreover, XStar is a trading platform that will provide a different and larger trading experience, which is not exactly the same as that of LoMoStar. This is what we have discovered in the Chinese market. Also, from a perspective of marketing theory, different needs of user groups can be mutually relocated. Therefore, LoMoStar and XStar may adopt different approaches and strategies when they are promoted in various countries. In any case, if LoMoStar first enters a country, it can help XStar; if XStar first enters a country, likewise, it can in turn help LoMoStar.
Do you think your marketing budget is enough to cover all your future plans (e.g. exchange costs, hiring foreign specialists etc.)?
Our company has a healthy financial position and we are fairly certain that it is enough to support our marketing efforts. We will also use our budget to participate in conferences and events all around the globe.
Are you going to integrate Augmented Reality (AR) features? And if so, does the current app functionality allow for it?
We have a well connected partner that we have a good relationship with, as their founder used to develop mining machines with our CEO. This enterprise is experienced in developing chips and advanced AR techniques. In the future, sooner or later, AR will be adopted in any location-based system (LBS) application. Inside our firm we are always talking about AR and we believe that when the AR techniques and implementation possibilities get improved we will certainly adopt it in LoMoStar.
How will you protect LoMoCoin (LMC) investors and increase the interest of using LMC inside of the app, since you have also added other currencies such as Ethereum and Bitcoin?
A key feature of a currency is security and liquidity, which will also affect LMC. We will add more digital currencies in the future. Global users and transaction volume will be increased this way. Additionally, when you run a club and have a lot of guests invited. There will be social demand for every guest. Nevertheless, you as the host will almost always get prioritized in the long-term by all of these guests.
Can you tell us about the F5 lab? How many full-time employees are there? Is it a subsidary of LoMoStar or is it an independent research lab? What are they working on now?
F5 Labs is a professional technology collaboration, and the technology we develop and share inside is more ‘professional’ and complex than that of the general programmer community. It will be focusing on B2B relationship initially.
How will you ensure exclusivity for LMC within the LoMoStar app? What will ensure the app will use LMC?
There is no doubt that many exclusive features will be implemented in the future within the app where you must use LoMoCoin to complete.
How will iBeacon/IoT be implemented? Will it be implemented onto the LMC chain?
We are very interested and involved in the development of the Internet of Things. Our CEO next week will also visit the Lenovo Group training session as they are looking for solutions that is combining blockchain technology and the Internet of Things. I think everyone may have heard of the Lenovo Group, they acquired IBM personal computer business in the past.
What is your future plan to attract more investments?
From the scope of my responsibility, I am more concerned about the ecological construction of LoMoStar. Overall when it comes to marketing, it is something that money can solve. Moreover, we have always kept in touch with prominent exchanges and we have made some progress here. We will inform you when we are able to confirm more.
Well I guess that turned out to be a long article! Remember you should always do your own research and come up with your own assessment before investing. There is a lot more information available in the links below. I am just giving you my personal insight on LoMoStar (LMC) and why I feel this is one of the largest and most undervalued blockchain projects in China. Remember, everything you invest in should be for the long-term and patience is key.

Vendor CaliGirl Busted + What he did wrong

Bust #1: CaliGirl
I strongly encourage every vendor to read through these notes and analyse their own operation so they do not make the same mistakes that their colleagues/competition did. In the end it is not only your own future that is at risk but also the one of your customers. Please read the whole post because it not only includes stupid vendor mistakes that you probably would never make, but also some tricky pitfalls which you would miss out if you just skim the post.
Before I come to the busts themselves I want to briefly talk about some aspects that are so important that I think they deserve a specific mention:
