First year has came, Good news are reported frequently:Has Blockchain industry reach the watershed?
In 2020, It is a disaster year for most industries and regions. However, when we are facing catastrophe,opportunities are emerging accordingly.In global widespread depression period, there is an industry quietly emerging , that is Blockchain industry. From the beginning of this year, countries around the globe are accelerating the researching speed for Blockchain technology , many world banks are starting the research on lawful digital currency , many advantageous policies are announced one after another. Therefore, this year is also called " First Year Of Blockchain Industries". As a matter of fact, There was a warning for rising status of Blockchain Industry in the previous periods. In recent years, Internet Blockchain services companies are all increasing their ranking among Global Blockchain industries.Currently,Top companies around the globe are Google, Amazon from the US;Alibaba , JingDong from China. https://preview.redd.it/rx04bzmanev51.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=9c7911a0c6dfdb8e7c131eea8c499ff8b3b4034b Current Global Blockchain corporations locations are mainly focus in China and Europe,America. There are about 80% of Global Blockchain industries located in America and China. Besides Europe and America,United Nations World Food Programme has started the exploration and applications processes for Blockchain technique in the 2015. From the current situation, although good news within the industry are annouced constantly, there is still a path to real Blockchain outbreak period; The reasons for preventing the Blockchain technique grounded progress are because of the following two reasons: First , the Birth of Blockchain technique is considering to be the layer technique for Bitcoins, most projects are hard to separte Digital currency and Blockchain in the Blockchain technique researching progress, which is the reason to cause popularizing image for Blockchain technique is still digital currency for most people and not the real technique with useful value.This is not positive trending for project's development and grounded process. Currently, very popularized DEFI fields are also facing entity grounded problems. In 2018 January, United nation "weather chain alliance" is planning to build a transparent system for climate data, carbon emission data and carbon trade data, distributed accountbook technique is elimating the possibility of influence of political changes for Climate data. Before that, UN used to release Ethereum Blockchain tryout project, which was to provide humanitarian aid for Syria refugee. Super Public chain AITD Blockchain is positively facilitating DeFi and Dentralized progresses. The emergence of these two applications are enabling the world to observe more possibilities for Blockchain Technique and also allowing us to start thinking " What is the real Blockchain Future. Second, Each country's Blockchain technique competition is almost coming to a fervorization period, At the same time, Blockchain industry good news are annoucing constantly. Currently, most Blockchain project are covering small area, single scenario application mode,Blockchain pojects which can achieve open source and wide range popularization is rare and precious. In global Blockchain market seize competition, various internet leaders are participating in seizing the resources, bringing feared emotions to the industries . Such as famous Facebook social media, Facebook social communication platform possessed enormous users amounts. In 2019, Facebook published Libra White Paper, this move is causing a great disturbance within the industry. From there we can say that the competition between Blockchain projects are the competition between user and consensus. The current situation is that industry face is strong market seizing competition trending for each country's Blockchain industry's development and exploration. Any two countries are trying to control the first position for digital economy era, but not to promote Blockchain technique value grounded process around the globe. https://preview.redd.it/ofmt59nfnev51.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d6f8f5363e1dcd69cf99075375b1f09a2c3d2003 Even for the lawful digital currencies which are currently under researching and development progresses, are also independently researching and developing by each countries' Bank, which is easy to form isolated island. This seizing phenomenon is not coordinating with Blockchain spirits. If huge internet companies which have enormous users amount are starting to join the scramble competition, it is definitely going to form new competitions. Blockchain spirit is Trust, Open sources, Decentralization, current phenomenon is not coordinating with Blockchain spirits . AITD public chain may provide assistance for Blockchain technique grounded progresses with stronger financial application backgrounds and rich ecosystem environment. Therefore, The real project which can promote the Blockchain technique grounded progress and perform as "watershed functions"(means the new direction) for industry development progress should be breaking the country boundary, breaking industry barrier, serving global, providing safe and reliable grounded ecosystem , but the generation of the project is not for single country or industry resources seizing process.

''' It took a whole decade for the economy and business to understand blockchain technology, its strengths, and weaknesses. Several years ago, the first mature options for its practical application began to appear on the market. [According to]1 Joseph Lubin, the founder and CEO of the blockchain company ConsenSys, the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus infection pandemic could be a watershed for blockchain technology. Joseph Lubin and Mike Novogratz, the CEO of Galaxy Digital cryptocurrency bank, discussed the development prospects of the industry and the impact of the pandemic on the cryptocurrency business. Both entrepreneurs believe that the socio-economic crisis is driving industry growth.
Blockchain for Voting
Participation in online voting makes it possible not to visit polling stations, thereby not only to save time but also to minimize contacts during the pandemic. Blockchain e-voting system undoubtedly fights against intruders and excludes the possibility of voting several times, since it stores unchangeable records of all votes and all identification data. The blockchain e-voting results [are transparent]2 , cannot be changed, and can be accessed instantly. Blockchain for voting is not only more reliable, but also faster, eliminates the human factor, and allows you to instantly receive election results.
Blockchain in Logistics
Blockchain technology in logistics will greatly simplify business. Now, to send one typical sea cargo, it is required to have 240 copies of 36 original documents. [Komgo]3 , the consortium of traders, banks, and inspection firms, uses the DLT platform in order to get rid of this paper swamp, optimizing the process of cargo registration on the principle of “Know Your Customer”. Parties can immediately receive confirmation that they have exact copies of the same data at their disposal, which speeds up the process and avoids legal disputes and conflicts.
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in Australia, Fiji and New Zealand has [launched]4 a pilot project in the Pacific Islands that will use blockchain technology to track tuna paths from “bait to plate”. The project aims to stop illegal and unregulated fishing, as well as to stop human rights violations in the industry, including corruption schemes, illegal trade, and the use of slave labor in the fishery.
Lamborghini decided to digitize its collection postage stamps and [issued]5 the first blockchain-based stamp. This technology should guarantee the uniqueness and authenticity of each stamp. In 2019 Austrian Post Office [launched]6 a line of [blockchain]7 authenticated stamps with 5 images of a unicorn. On those stamps, one could find credentials for the authentication on the Ethereum blockchain. In 2020, they kept on with last-year success and [announced]8 a new line with animal designs. As every crypto stamp has a private key, being also an Ethereum wallet, one can use them both a real stamp or as an alternative paper wallet with a nice visual style.
Recently, many medical blockchain projects have been created. One of them is [My Clinic]9 . It’s a platform for instant communication with a personal doctor. It is based on a blockchain for exchanging client data, which allows patients to contact a new doctor without the need for a personal visit for an initial examination and transfer of medical documents. Consulting a doctor becomes easier when traveling, taking tests, and undergoing large-scale diagnostics.
The Future of Technology
Blockchain is likely to transform entire industries and, possibly, the entire economy through integration with other technologies. The distributed nature of blockchain provides a valuable opportunity to conduct transactions cheaper and faster. Instead of “transferring” copies of documents between lawyers and banks and waiting for each stage of registration to be processed, blockchain gives all parties a complete overview of the procedure for the simultaneous implementation of several stages of the process. For example, a consortium of law firms has teamed up with blockchain service providers [Proxeus]10 and [IBM]11 to reduce the time for setting up a commercial company from a few weeks to a few days. The first company to have made it [Drakkensberg]12 , was generally founded within two hours.
Thus, we see that blockchain technology has a wide range of implementations in the near future. And, perhaps, the one who starts it first will be ahead of competitors.

Which high-quality minority coins are likely to break through and become mainstream cryptocurrencies?
The veterans who often visit the currency forum may have heard a sentence: long bitcoin, short all the alts. The meaning is obvious, the status of Bitcoin is almost unshakable, but the mainstream currency has changed from wave to wave. Blackcoin, Futurecoin, and PPcoin that were hot in the early years have now been thrown out of the mainstream currency rankings, and almost no one cares. According to coinmarketcap data, only Litecoin, Dogecoin and Ripple in the top ten market capitalization list survived and are temporarily among the mainstream coins. The picture shows the cryptocurrency quotation of an exchange in 2014. In 2017, the exchange suspended its services. After experiencing generations of cryptocurrency, what would replace the present-time mainstream cryptocurrency? https://preview.redd.it/kgiupx6u10751.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=afd08d4d115f780dfe331d0a8286d80be79b5ad9 The data above is the top 20 in the global market capitalization so far, and the data comes from coinmarketcap. We can see that bitcoin is still at the top of the ranking, and there are many new faces in the ranking after 2017. From the perspective of the number of cryptocurrency types, platform coins for 15%, Bitcoin and its fork for 15%, digital cross-chain assets and platforms for 35%, stablecoins for 10%, and the remaining digital payment for 25%. Of course, this kind of statistics is not scientific, because the statistics are only based on the number of rankings, without taking into account the weighted impact of market value, but we can still glimpse the market trend of cryptocurrencies in recent years. https://preview.redd.it/4a6ykk6y10751.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=b60a9aa15e5d3e5a5fe32e97e26b01c103b3d12a The earliest cryptocurrencies are not as complicated as they are today. They are just a cryptocurrency and have no other role than payment. Through the latest cryptocurrency rankings, we can understand that cryptocurrencies are moving towards diversification. Since the cryptocurrency broke out in 2017, we have heard countless concepts: cross-chain, decentralized operating system, decentralized Internet, DEFI, DAO... Some of these concepts have evolved into reality, some concepts are on the way to becoming a reality. We can say that 2018 is a watershed moment for this industry. Cryptocurrencies have stepped out of the pure P2P payment field and are moving towards a diversified ecological development. https://preview.redd.it/qqclr20220751.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=8802df25be16eb7418718cdca408b7cd0bd764d4 So, back to the topic, what is diversification, how do we judge whether a digital currency has the conditions to enter the mainstream currency? I think that the basis for judgment is very simple. The following points are for your reference: First, the distribution process needs to be transparent and fair. If there is an institutional investment, can the organization's bargaining cost and time cost adapt to the project development, and how can the organization be prevented from cashing out in a short time? If there is no institutional investment, is the amount of pre-mining of the project reasonable, or is it fair to users holding currency? Second， whether the project has market demand for corresponding industry solutions. Not all industries in this world need blockchain. Recognizing the reality that blockchain is not a panacea is the primary condition for entering the cryptocurrency market. The third point is whether the project has a certain foundation. The foundation here includes two aspects: community foundation and cardinal basis. It is recommended to identify the project from these two aspects. I have been observing the digital currency market for a long time. Among them, a mining currency ETX (Ethereumx·NET) with a POW+DPOS proof mechanism has attracted my attention. After understanding that the currency is not pre-mined, the distribution mechanism is very fair. In addition, there is an optional anonymous transfer mode, which protects the privacy of users to a greater extent than ETH. On this basis, you can also undertake ETH dually: undertake ETH2.0 elimination of computing power; seamlessly transplant all application ecology of ETH. The most remarkable thing is its dual economic model of POW+DPOS, which locks a certain circulation and distributes newly-produced coins fairly, stably increasing the value. https://preview.redd.it/bs41b7h420751.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=197814b98c3efd834ef674eeb1e684949b9be739 Cryptocurrency is a thriving world, but it is also a dangerous world. Welcome to follow me and explore potential projects. There are risks in the market, so you need to be cautious when entering the market.
A complete strategy is actually a set of rules that traders give themselves. It includes all aspects of the trading, and does not leave a little room for subjective imagination. Every choices of buying and selling, the strategy will give an answer. It includes at least strategy selection, variety selection, fund management, order placing, extreme market situation response and so on.
From the perspective of hedge funds, mainstream trading strategies can be divided into trend trading, paired trading, basket trading, event-driven, high-frequency trading, option strategy, etc., as shown below. https://preview.redd.it/fau662l3t3s41.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=890162efc3c87553c9bd8db0521a0a7bb903f9c3 Of course, the way of strategy classification is not fixed. For the beginners, don't worry about so many noun concepts, let's start from the simplest. If only one type of quantitative trading strategy is recommended, it will be the trend trading, which is the most simple and effective. I believe that even if you don't have a systematic knowledge of financial learning, you can still use it. And this strategy has been around for a long time. Among the early public-published trading strategies, it is still effective in many markets today, because human nature is difficult to change.
What to buy and sell
Those who have done trading should know that each variety has its own personality. Some varieties are very popular, with good liquidity, large fluctuations, and high volatility; some varieties are very "docile", and they are oscillating within a certain range all year round, with low volatility. https://preview.redd.it/zut9xw07t3s41.png?width=940&format=png&auto=webp&s=5eeb4dd6d649cf3a557c700d26cba273ffe06ec8 Therefore, when choosing a trading variety, there must be a concept of volatility. Varieties with high volatility are often easy to get out of a good trend. For commodity futures, if it is a trend-tracking strategy, try to choose industrial products. In terms of variety attributes, industrial products tend to be more volatile than agricultural products. For crypto trading, choose those major coins, such as bitcoin, eth, eos and so on. Different strategies adapt to different market conditions. Choosing a good trading variety, which is a very crucial beginning for the future trading project. In absolute terms, there are no absolutely good varieties and no absolutely bad varieties. Depending on the investment style and the risk tolerance, you need to adjust accordingly to your own standards.
How much to buy and sell
It is easy to loss money when trading. When the account fund loses 50%, the loss will require 100% profit to recover it. Even if you can earn 100% many times, you only need to lose 100% once, which will lose it all. So mature trading strategies should include money management. In order to facilitate everyone's understanding, here also use the average line strategy of the previous section to explain. In fact, many trading strategies built with traditional technical indicators have a maximum retracement rate of more than 50% or more. But is a risky strategy completely unusable? Obviously not, the maximum retracement rate can be completely controlled by money management. If you cut the position by half, the overall risk will be reduced by half, and the maximum retracement rate will be 30%. If you reduce the position by half again, the maximum retracement rate will become 15%. Finally, we get a maximum retracement rate at around 15%. This is a simple and easy method of money management. Many people know that they can't go all in, but they don't know why. The answer is here.
When to buy and sell
A good jump in point is very important, and it allows you to get out of the cost zone quickly. But there will never be anyone who can tell you that it is right at this point, and it is wrong at that point. Opening a position is not the core of the trading. The core of the trading is how to optimize the position after opening the position. Whether it is a short-term strategy or a long-term strategy, it doesn't matter how long the position will be holding, the important is the risk-to-profit ratio. In other words, the final result that affects the performance of the strategy is how to play and when to cash out. The cash out method can be divided into two types: stop loss and take profit. Both of these parts are necessary for any trading system and are an important watershed for the success or failure of trading strategies.
How to buy
1, Type and method of order placement: There are many types and methods of placing orders, such as: queuing limit orders, opponent price, latest price, over price, daily limit price, buying one price, buying two price, selling one price, selling two price. or use the queue price first, then use the over-price, sending batch order, or split the big order into small orders, or simply place the order directly. 2, Withdraw order If there are unexecuted orders, whether continue waiting or withdraw the order. The condition for the withdrawal is based on the time. For example, there is no transaction within 10 seconds. The price has been 10 units away from the order price, whether to continue waiting, withdrawing or chasing the new price. 3, chase the price When the order is unexecuted, whether to chase the price. If chasing the price, it is to chase according to the latest price, or the opponent price, or the limit price? If the order is still not executed, whether continue to pursue the latest price. 4, the price limit When the order signal appears, it happens to be the limit price. Whether should to queue up the price. 5, set bidding Do we need to participate in the market opening stage, how to participate. 6, night-time market Some commodity futures varieties are from 21:00 to 02:30 the next day and all crypto trading are 27/7. Do we need participate these time period. Manually or automatically? 7, Major holidays Before a long holiday, do we need clear all position or reduce some of them.
Extreme market situation
1, Short-term price fluctuations The price of the price suddenly huge rises and falls (black swan situation) etc., how to deal with these situations (as shown in the figure, the Swiss franc black swan event). 2, Liquidity risk If the other side of trading direction order depth does not have the amount you want to execute, but you need to execute immediately. especially if the non-main commodity future contract is very rare, it is easy to make a price jump to the market. How to deal with it when the price slippage is large. 3, Variety trading rules change Commodity futures varieties are added to the night-time market and the crypto trading is 24/7. the margin ratio is raised, and the commission fee is raised, especially the short-term trading strategy, which is very sensitive to these changes. 4, Trading environment risk For example: sudden power failure, network disconnection, computer failure, software downtime, suspension of bank transfer, natural disasters, etc., how to deal with it when it occurs. In the above case, the probability of occurrence is small, or almost impossible. But if things can happen, it will happen. It is very necessary to make these assumptions and prevent them.
The three main psychological emotions commonly in trading are greed, fear and lucky. Investors need a strong trading psychology system to control and even use the above three emotions at different stages. https://preview.redd.it/d0px773ft3s41.png?width=804&format=png&auto=webp&s=e073070345acf1e0727b9c47fc3543ecb2e7ad9b There must be an overall expectation for the future before you placing an order, including market expectations and variety psychological expectations. Market expectations have a clearer target for the location and future direction of the market. Variety expectations refer to the trading opportunities and risk profiles of the variety at its current location. Without the above psychological foundation, nothing can be done. The whole process of real market trading is the process of continuous analysis, correction and execution. During the trading period, there are not many transactions, and more is tracking and endurance. This is a process of comprehensively examining the state of mind and testing human nature. The various habits of traders will be revealed and enlarged during the transaction process. Only by continuously learning and summarizing lessons after lessons, can we overcome the commonalities and psychological weaknesses of human nature.
To sum up
In summary, the so-called trading strategy is actually like this. When it has its perfect side and when it is incomplete, we can measure whether a trading strategy is reasonable. We can’t just look at his perfect side, and can’t just look at his broken side. On the one hand, it is more important to analyze the integrity of the strategy. Finally, according to the characteristics of the strategy, combined with trader's own personality and financial situation to measure whether the strategy is suitable for themselves, if it is suitable for themselves, it is necessary to fully assess how likely it is to persist, the worst results must be planned in advance, if the most You have thought about the miserable side happens, you still can take it, then the possibility of implementation is relatively large. Remember, in trading, confidence comes from your inner recognition, and confidence comes from the right trading philosophy!

Why Segwit2x (aka NYA, aka Alt Coin B2X) Is a 51% Attack
"In bitcoin's Necronomicon of possible attacks and weaknesses, one reigns supreme – the 51% attack. If there is a fear that has played on people's minds as the end-of-days scenario for bitcoin, it is this. Attackers who hold more than 50% of hashing power could stop transactions from confirming and even reverse some transactions. They could undermine the whole project. Bitcoin's design and its system of economic incentives has been set up specifically to combat the destructive potential of a 51% attack. And it has worked. The 51% attack has remained a hypothetical bogeyman. Until now. By all indication, a coordinated 51% attack will begin on, or around, Nov. 16. That's when a consortium of miners representing substantially more than 50% of the network's hashing power and an allied group of blockchain startups will seek to increase the block size. This will require a hard fork, which while controversial, is a legitimate desire. In itself, this is not an attack. Where it goes wrong However, the consortium's effort has evolved beyond a simple fork. It is now being developed not simply as an effort to fork the chain, but to do so in such a way as to deliberately prevent the continued existence of the status quo chain. Specifically, the developers involved have declined to introduce replay protection. The 2x fork will create a situation where transactions performed on one fork, can be "replayed" on the second fork. In effect, users will have funds on both blockchains, but any transaction they perform on one blockchain could lead to a loss of funds on the other blockchain. Replay protection is a fairly easy-to-implement method to protect users from this risk. Network attacks are those actions taken with the intention of disrupting the protocol’s normal functioning. The 2x change, bereft of replay protection, causes massive disruption. This is by design. Without replay protection in place, a minority chain becomes less likely to survive. Question of motives The preferred outcome for the consortium is that the status quo chain ceases to exist, that its transactions fail to confirm. This is the literal definition of a 51% attack. If it sounds a bit bizarre to call the consortium's effort an attack, that's because it is. The consortium comprises many real supporters of bitcoin, acting in what they believe is good faith. They don't mean to be attacking bitcoin. However, without replay protection their efforts are like an autoimmune disease, having become overzealous and perverted. So, bitcoin is finally coming to come face-to-face with the mother of all attacks. This is a watershed moment. The very worst outcomes are bad indeed. Transactions could grind to a halt, faith in the system could be lost, bitcoin and by extension, the entire blockchain world could prove to be far more vulnerable to attack than we hoped. We shall overcome However, there is also another possible, even more likely, outcome. Bitcoin could prove resilient to the consortium's attack and emerge battered but unbroken. In so doing, bitcoin will have proven itself resilient to even its greatest foe. It is hard to overstate how important this will be to bitcoin's perceived reliability. Bitcoin has always been haunted by the risk that its rules might come to be dictated by special interest groups or hostile, state-sponsored parties. This risk is never going completely away, but instead of the risk being a hypothetical bogeyman, it will become a much more prosaic thing: a successfully managed risk. The 51% attack is bitcoin's boss level. I don’t think it's an exaggeration to say that we are now at the end of the beginning. If we successfully overcome this coming challenge, bitcoin will no longer be just an experiment, it will be a fact. But don't expect less drama — we are now entering bitcoin's adolescence. HODL on tight, things will get hairy." Source: www.coindesk.com/bitcoins-bogeyman-cometh-segwit2x-51-attack/
This is not a post to speculate or encourage speculation. Simply put, I would like to engage in meaningful discourse pertaining to why XRP is valuable to banks(consumers)(us) in terms of transferring money nationally/internationally. I've read a lot, a whole hell of a lot in regards to Ripple as a company, Xrapid, Xcurrent and Xvia. As far as what is available for public interpretation, it seems like we are approaching a major overhaul in the financial sector. Well, at least what most of us XRP holders want to support and believe. Which brings to the light the issue of decentralized vs centralized fiat alternatives. Obviously, Bitcoin has made it apparent, trust has been employed into the sector of cryptocurrency. At this juncture, efforts in my opinion, are being diverted into establishing policy. Without aforementioned policies, future standards cannot be established. Unfortunately, this is the relentless demeanor our [US] government. Being a 29 year old individual who works a full time job and pays roughly 28% of my 50K salary to taxes annually, I understand what it means to pay into the system. Not unlike u/galgitron mentioned in their reply to a comment, as much as i'd like to support decentralization, i'd also like to avoid feeling "poor". I read this as the most revealing and connecting comment of his/her post. This was an outcry, similar to, if not identical to what everyone putting hard earned wages into cryptocurrencies desired results are. Hence why everyone asks for what do you think XRP will be valued at in the future. People want to count chickens before they hatch, expect exponential gains, observe astronomical returns. Is it going to be the most decentralized coins that effect the most change to our financial economy and sector? No, I can't honestly say I believe that truly decentralized coins will prevail and pave the new 'oregon trail', if you will. It won't happen this way because government, financial institutions are, essentially too big. This may be a road that changes the course of our financial future, but will not overtake what policies are already in place. For example, take the Dakota Access Pipeline project. I truly feel like we, as a country, reverted to some pretty archaic, pre-industrialist practices. We managed to avoid government intervention. Petitions signed, voted against this. And even in some instances disapproved the work of this project. Yet, it was still implemented, and shortly after being implemented, spilled some 180,000 gallons of crude oil into watersheds that would affect communities surrounding the project area. This is how powerful our government is, when it is susceptible to the coercion of lobbyist interested in the profits generated by such a project. As much as CC traders want to believe a completely anonymous crypto project can go unadulterated by this process, it is not possible. Technology the US government employs according to public knowledge is decades behind technology they actually have capabilities of utilizing. So to bring this full circle and impose the question I have at hand. Forget Market Cap. There is way too much money to be consolidated for rapid trade in the world economy in a few XRP (38,000,000,00) so why wouldn't banks want the value of XRP to rise. A- Makes for a higher profit in what they secure as an asset of business, and B-ties up less of that asset per the increase of value. I have read so many theorems on this, but this only makes sense to me. And correct me if you think I'm wrong, but per our US history, limiting potential transactions based on accountable/transferable/verifiable value seems like the last place a bank would want to find themselves. (financial collapses of recent years) IF Crypto is the move forward, all parties in my opinion will play nice if they want to compete, and if they want to compete they want to continue business. As value rises, banks hold more in terms of liquidity. You will see less and less small holders of XRP. I do believe that long term holders will get paid. But I am not saying that to appease. I think the individuals who invested what they are willing to lose, will see a return in the next 5 years. Others will be long gone. Banks will eventually hold all XRP units and Ripple won't contend this. Any transferable XRP will be consolidated into a new coin the public can hold, and will be done so at a premium. Right now, Ripple is courting FI on the money of individual investors. And that soon will need to come to an end. The end is as I suggest, a redistribution of value into a new coin. It is a conflict of interest to continue to distribute XRP to small holders when the business plan clearly states a demographic that could clearly hold ALL currently existing and potentially existing XRP coins. The value can ONLY go up. Just hold. Wait for news, and then watch your XRP turn into a coin completely different. Personally 10,000/XRP is a low estimate in my opinion. And I do welcome the criticizers and MAFmeticians to correct me. IMHO, forgive me for errors, typos and incorrect remarks. I am only a graduate of Anthropology from the University of Georgia.
$MRNJ Metatron Sells Cannaboids App to Biotech Company and Integrates Cryptocurrency App for Marijuana Payments
https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/MRNJ/news/Metatron--MRNJ--Sells-Cannaboids-App-to-Biotech-Company-and-Integrates-Cryptocurrency-App-for-Marijuana-Payments?id=176973 Dec 04, 2017 OTC Disclosure & News Service DOVER, Del., Dec. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Metatron (OTC:MRNJ), a mobile and web technology pioneer having released over 2000 Marijuana, CBD, Vaporized™ secure chat and related apps on iTunes and Google Play, is pleased to report the final stage development of Bitweed™, a cryptocurrency transaction and tracking app for Cannabis that is expected to evolve into its own CryptoCoin. Metatron recently signed a deal to sell the Cannaboids™ app to Sanguine Biotech and has an on-going contract to integrate certain mobile technologies within the app, more news about this agreement forthcoming. Sanguine has developed a network of 20,000 patients, including 50+ patient advocacy group non-profits, biobanks, and patient portals. Here is a list of their data and specimens used in 40+ peer-reviewed journal articles. This announcement coincides with the launch of http://www.icocryptoblockchain.com, the premier one-stop website soon to be app with the latest cryptocurrency news, education, editorials, market capitalizations, trade volume and ICO alerts. The world's largest futures exchange, CME, has completed self-certification with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and expects to launch its bitcoin futures contracts on Dec. 18. Bitcoin's price rise as the launch of bitcoin futures emerge will help pave the way toward establishing the digital currency as a legitimate asset class. According to industry estimates, Bitcoin and the 1000+ alt coins are now worth over $300 billion, only a year ago they were worth about 1 Billion. Today over $10 billion in digital tokens change hands daily and even big players such as Goldman Sachs, Visa, Capital One, Nasdaq, and the New York Stock Exchange have invested in blockchain technology. “With Cannabis legal in about 29 states, Canada making recreational Marijuana legal, and Bitcoin’s watershed moment of peaking at $11,000 and about to be trading futures, we are seeing a shift from the early adopter phase and into the mainstream phase for both industries. Payment solutions are needed for dispensaries and customers so we plan on integrating the upcoming Bitweed™ and the popular Cannaboids™ apps to make this process more efficient for retailers and consumers,” said CEO Joe Riehl. According to Forbes By 2020, the Cannabis industry is expected to create more jobs than manufacturing. Overall legal marijuana sales are set to increase from about 7 billion dollars in 2016 to 26.5 billion dollars 2020. Since Canada recently legalized recreational marijuana nationwide, it will result in an additional 23 Billion dollar added to the industry over the same time period according to Delotte. Metatron, an industry leader in the field of mobile app development with over 2000 apps created, millions in sales and downloads historically, has partnered with high profile companies and clients worldwide and is poised to revolutionize the exploding crypto and cannabis industries. Through its app development division i-Mobilize™, and as a pioneer in emerging markets, Metatron was the first company to release any Cannabis related apps on iTunes and has extensive experience in processing payments through its Just Data Billing division. Release date for the BitWeed™ app is expected first quarter of next year. Metatron is also pleased to announce a formal offer to Buzzlink.com, a cannabis e-commerce platform for dispensaries and other retailers. Buzzlink.com will be financed partially by the issuance of preferred B series shares. Metatron approved investors can acquire Series B shares in blocks of various sizes. The first round investors will receive the highest discount. Series B shares can be redeemed through the Company, are immune to reverse splits, and will convert at 1 B share to 50,000 common shares at a discount. There are a limited number of B shares available and Metatron reserves the right to end offering at any time.

discuss, in detail, why this domain should have its classification changed
Greentech Media is one of the leading news sources inside the clean energy field. From its about page: Greentech Media delivers market analysis, business-to-business news and conferences that inform and connect players in the global clean energy market. Our coverage extends across the clean energy industry with a focus on solar power and the electric utility market's evolution. Greentech Media's industry-leading coverage is provided by world-class journalists and a global network of expert contributors, supported by a team of analysts from our market intelligence arm, GTM Research. I believe it should be changed to a blue source. Greentech Media is a standard-bearer within the clean energy industry. When Greentech Media publishes opinions, editorials, or sponsored posts from outside sources they are always clearly marked as such, and generally come from trustworthy industry groups or companies, such as the Solar Energy Industry Association or American Wind Energy Association. The domain also publishes original research in the clean energy space. The domain has been publishing clean energy news for a decade, and is seen as one of the most trustworthy source of news about the clean energy space.
provide 10 examples, within the year, that support your position. Briefly explain how they support your position.
This article covers China's possible transition to electric vehicles as well as a transition away from coal. Here's a quote that conveys how they approach news like this: with full disclosure of interests, valuable insights, and original research. "An analysis from GTM’s parent company, Wood Mackenzie, suggests electric cars could make up 85 percent of new auto sales by 2035."
This article covers a transition in the UK market. Here's a quote that demonstrates Greentech Media's approach to the subject: "The prices, down by as much as 51 percent compared to the average in the U.K.’s last subsidy round in 2015, were cheaper than the levelized cost of gas, based on figures from the U.K. Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), RenewableUK said in a statement."
This headline brushes against clickbait-y, but the claims made are all true and backed up by reliable sources: "New reports from Moody’s Investors Service and energy consulting firm DNV GL outline the unstoppable momentum behind renewables. But even what DNV GL calls a “critical watershed” in the electricity industry doesn’t appear to move the needle fast enough on the Paris climate agreement."
Reporting on GE's new product. If there's bias in Greentech Media, it's the bias that exists with any major industry publication: the bias that industry growth is happening, it's important, and it's the way of the future. In this specific case, this bias jives exactly with the content of /futurology.
On the topic of bias, however, GTM doesn't only publish good news, and it isn't taking on the role of a giant cheerleader. If a company goes bankrupt, they report on it and on what went wrong, or if residential solar growth is expected to slow, as above, they will cover it.
Here's an example of something that's an Industry Perspective, i.e. a piece that was written by someone other than one of GTM's own journalists. Here, you can see it is labeled with Industry Perspective on the top, and there is an "about the author" section at the end that clearly labels from where the author's perspective comes: Tam Hunt is a lawyer and owner of Community Renewable Solutions LLC, a renewable energy project development and policy advocacy firm based in Santa Barbara, California and Hilo, Hawaii, co-founder of Solar Trains LLC, and author of the new book, Solar: Why Our Energy Future Is So Bright. You may also see reasonable debate(!) in the comments, with the author responding.
This article highlights GTM's use of their research arm in publication. "According to GTM Research and the Energy Storage Association’s (ESA) U.S. Energy Storage Monitor, this is the most grid-interactive behind-the-meter energy storage ever deployed in a single quarter."
Rounding out my list of ten is this article. It highlights the original reporting GTM does, contacting several small- to medium-sized thermal storage businesses (Tesla does Lithium ion storage, not thermal storage) and discussing the market with them. Finally, I do not work with Greentech Media in any capacity. I have been a clean energy professional for nearly a decade, and have used Greentech Media nearly every day to keep abreast of the topics that interest me and are important to my work. Please let me know if you have any further questions. *Edited for link formatting.
17 Organizations Promoting Regenerative Agriculture Around the Globe
Transitioning to more sustainable forms of agriculture remains critical, as many current agriculture practices have serious consequences including deforestation and soil degradation. But despite agriculture’s enormous potential to hurt the environment, it also has enormous potential to heal it. Realizing this, many organizations are promoting regenerative agriculture as a way to not just grow food but to progressively improve ecosystems. Drawing from decades of research, regenerative agriculture uses farming principles designed to mimic nature. To build healthy soils and fertile, thriving agro-ecosystems, this approach incorporates a range of practices like agroforestry and well-managed grazing. Benefits of these practices include richer soil, healthier water systems, increased biodiversity, climate change resilience, and stronger farming communities. To celebrate the ongoing work of individuals and organizations dedicated to healing agro-ecosystems around the globe, Food Tank is highlighting these 17 organizations building a global grassroots movement for better agriculture. https://preview.redd.it/sikwt1u5t9z01.jpg?width=770&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3c0057664791c857c3e4622cd235391c52b90d1c

Bitcoin Has ‘Unquantifiable Risk’: UBS Investment Chief
The world’s largest wealth manager says it does not plan to invest in bitcoin or other crypto assets, like CVH coin, due to the absence of government oversight and the lack of a clear exit strategy. 2017 has been a watershed year for bitcoin, and it will likely be remembered as the tipping point that turned bitcoin’s reputation from a curious experiment — utilized primarily by nerds and anti-government activists — into a mainstream financial instrument that, according to Pantera Capital CEO Dan Morehead, will be an “expected” component of a well-rounded financial portfolio. However, UBS Group AG, the world’s largest wealth manager, does not intend to bring cryptocurrencies, CVH coin, for example, into its investment portfolio. Speaking with Bloomberg, Mark Haefele — chief investment officer of UBS — said that the ecosystem’s lack of government oversight presents investors with an “unquantifiable risk”: “All it would take would be one terrorist incident in the U.S. funded by bitcoin for the U.S. regulator to much more seriously step in and take action,” he said. “That’s a risk, an unquantifiable risk, bitcoin has that another currency doesn’t.” Moreover, questioning that purchases of cryptocurrency, for example CVH coin, should even be classified as investments, he stated that firms have no way to develop a clear exit strategy to secure profits. “The thing that always strikes me about these, quote unquote, investments is not really when you would get into it but when you would get out of it,” Haefele said. “So how do you know when to get out of a bitcoin investment?” Even discounting those factors, Haefele said bitcoin does not even appear on UBS’s investment radar. Throwing shade on the significant growth experienced by the ecosystem this year, he stated that the approximately $230 billion cryptocurrency market cap was “not even the size of some of the smaller currencies” that UBS would include in its portfolio. But for an asset that is not on the firm’s radar, UBS discusses it quite a bit. In the past month alone, at least three UBS executives and analysts have criticized the burgeoning cryptocurrency industry. Disputing reports by Goldman Sachs and other firms that indicate investors are interested in cryptocurrency, UBS CEO Sergio Ermotti said that he doesn’t think “there’s any meaningful desire by high net worth individuals to take big bets” on bitcoin. Soon after, UBS published a whitepaper that described bitcoin as a “speculative bubble,” and a firm economist stated that the impending launch of bitcoin futures contracts reminded him of the tulip bubble in Holland during the 17th century. Of course, UBS’s bearish statements on bitcoin must be viewed within context. Recognizing the potential of blockchain technology, which exactly what Curriculum Vitae blockchain is based on, the firm has started its own digital currency project. The “utility settlement coin” is designed to help financial institutions across the globe swap value more efficiently than using cash transfers. UBS has been working on the project since 2015, and it has planned a limited rollout for 2018.
