Investor Marc De Mesel Donates $1,000 to Bitcoin Cash Mêmé ...

Thank you to all of the donors of Mainnet project! Funded! 🎉

Awesome! I would like to thank everyone who participated!

Thank you, everyone!

It will take a bit of time to start setting everything up and I'll update everyone on btc on when and where the development would start. It'll take a few days to setup everything.
This is an amazing proof that voluntary donations work!
One additional thank you goes to Marc de Mesel, it was his idea to run this as a Flipstarter.
Marc has also donated additional 108 BCH (on top of 750 BCH collected) for promotion of this project via a private donation. Why private? Well, the funds collected (750 BCH) will be spent publicly, so I'll have to specify who got what and for what exactly, but promotion will be done with a help of PR company, which asked for their activities and prices not to be public. If I spent 100+ BCH of publicly collected money for "various promotional activities" that would really seem like I took the money and would reek of corruption, that's why I asked for this part to be donated privately.

Thank you to

" Founder Threatens Ban & Permanent Fund Blacklist of 100 Users by Midnight London Time Tonight" Response from the founder

(Sorry that I post it here, the letters will be small, it would have been much better on, but it contains personal attacks on C. Edward Kelso and Shammah Chancellor, so I would have to ban me on for this post)
This is probably the most personal story I've ever published on the Internet on how your project will come back to haunt you and destroy your mind and your life.
CoinSpice should find enough "juicy" details here to humiliate me even further, I think they still could! I believe in their potential! Should I send you my nudes to post, CoinSpice, for you new article? (No, I'm not a girl, in case you're wondering)
Enjoy it if you like long reads. Warning: it contains quite a few jabs at some people.
So, you might have read this "piece" from afriendofsatoshi C. Edward Kelso Chief editor of CoinSpice
I'm really disappointed in CoinSpice. Anecdote from the past about them: my interview with them was terribly handled. I started the interview with them with "English is not my native language, so feel free to fix any errors you see in my answer", what did they write in CoinSpice? "We were able to determine that he is not a native English speaker" Seriously, "were able to determine", Sherlock?... why did you even need to publish that? To add a bit of a sensation? But this new piece from CoinSpice just breaks through the floor... I'm speechless... If you are ever offered to being interviewed by CoinSpice - run away! Save yourself!

What happened

28 July, 2020
An uneventful day on, people posting pictures of flowers, telling stories how they met their spouses, doing contests about who will sponsor whom, posting articles about teamwork and interviews with prominent Bitcoin Cash figures. Seriously, guys interviewed tons of Bitcoin Cash supporters (After the interview with CoinSpice I never gave anoter interview to anyone fearing it will be exactly unprofessional as CoinSpice - trying to get every little dirt the could dig out there)
micropresident (the guy who does not yet know he's going to, very professionally, like a normal stable developer he is, later go on to tell me "fuck") publishes a contest where he calls for memes that contain the following phrases: "Amaury the Socialist Dictator", "Marc De Mesel is Calvin Ayre Lite") promising up to 2 BCH in return (I believe, I didn't read his rules) for these memes.
Since a lot of users are from Philippines, Nigeria and other poor countries, where $300 is a lot of money (maybe something you will make in a year), people proceed to create these memes.
This goes directly against the rules of the site that everyone must agree before they sign up, directly violating the rule: "No name-calling, trash-talking, personal attacks or insults."
I log in to and notice the homepage full of low quality posts attacking Amaury, Marc, ABC, upvoted to no end, tons of boosted posts and Shammah giving $$ left and right for this stuff.
I publish 2 responses where I tell people to remove the memes that contain personal attacks or face a ban. and
Most of the people agreed and removed the offending memes and had no problem with it, many said they were sorry.
u/micropresident in a very professional manner proceeds to tell us to "fuck [ourselves]" and tells he's building a clone (non-moderated I presume). He also quotes us very calmly and professionally adding: "Complete bullshit" referring to rules of
CoinSpice proceeds to publish the "celebrity upskirt" kind of article " Founder Threatens Ban & Permanent Fund Blacklist of 100 Users by Midnight London Time Tonight". Emphasis mine, I just can't stand this kind of language... this is yellow press at best. It only lacks "Reason #2 will shock you!" in the title...
So, back to the story.

Why do we even have this rule?

Is it because I'm an egomaniac that hates people? Is it because I'm secretly funded by BSV? Is it because Marc de Mesel donated nearly $100,000 to the fund? Is it because I love censoring people?
No, no and no.
It's because I want Bitcoin Cash adoption. I frankly wanted Bitcoin adoption since 2013, alas, the tiny blocks and huge fees won't allow that. So I had to switch to Bitcoin Cash which kept Bitcoin idea going.
Do you have a friend that is not deep into cryptocurrency? Tell him/her to join the Crypto Twitter. They will look at it for five minutes and tell you: "Are you crazy? These people are constantly attacking and mocking each other. What if I do something wrong? Why are they doing it? Are they mentally ill? Is this really the money of the future?"
This will be his answer for nearly every site or platform that talks about cryptocurrency.
It's everywhere. But with Bitcoin Cash somehow it's very ingrained into the nature. I understand, Bitcoin Cash was attacked so often that it became a second nature of some people to attack everything they don't like.
Don't like Amaury? Let's attack him! Why? Don't care! I just don't like him!
Don't like Marc de Mesel? Let's attack him!
Don't like CSW and Calvin? - Let's attack them. - But why? They don't do anything bad to us now. - Wait, are you one of THEM? Let's attack or you'll be attacked! Fuck you, you and you and, fuck yeah! Attaccckkk!!!
This all seems totally crazy to a newcomer.
But what do we want to achieve with Getting newcomers to use Bitcoin Cash. Without the drama or craziness. Just some flower pictures.
Up until 28 July, 2020 this was the case. People were posting innocent pictures, got payments from the fund, tipped each other, sponsored each other, yelled at me for not getting paid enough.
Occasionally, we had some dissenters, like *****, who proceeded to tell spammers that they are "fucking cunts", got a warning for that, left forever, deleting all articles, returned, started attacking people again, got banned for that, started telling people on how stupid is because we didn't manually ban the spammers and wasted time programming software to detect them...
Ok, weird thing - she seems to recommend people to join now, which is confusing, so I removed her name.
Then there were people who wasted hours upon hours of my day by asking stupid questions, who got blocked (from me, not from
But mostly things were okay with (not with me though). We've got 12,000 users, very few incidents, the fund got a donation from Marc de Mesel for nearly $100,000 which will pay new users for a year or so. We gave away money to 5,700 people (for free)!
I want to stress one part here. Marc has donated (unconditionally) more than 97% of the fund. More than 30 times more than all of the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem combined donated.
Read that part again. Marc donated 30 times more than everyone else in the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem combined! Unconditionally. I haven't received any condition about the donation use.
Marc even told us that he's willing to donate much more! Which we hastily declined, because is not profitable and it doesn't make sense to spend more than we would have gotten from ads if we were monetized. can't be living off donations forever. It's unsustanable. So we spend via the fund approximately what we would have gotten if was plastered with ads.
But again, 12,000 users of is 97% MarcDeMesel's achievement.
That's 12,000 users of Bitcoin Cash.
Isn't "adoption" what you wanted?
Yet, the guy who said "fuck!", all the while getting top payments from the fund, proceeds to create a contest about "Marc is Calvin Ayre Lite"...
Told that this is a personal attack, replies "Complete bullshit!" (exact quote)
Note: Marc is actually OK with memes about him and asked us directly to revert our policy to allow the [offensive] memes It wasn't Marc's initiative, it was mine.
And it wasn't only Marc who were being mocked.
I'll admit right here - I don't like Amaury's actions, I don't like IFP (and I listed my reasons), but I'll warn/ban anyone directly attacking him on read.csah (not his thoughts, but just him). Wanna discuss how Amaury's idea about DAA is bad? Feel free! Wanna call him an idiot? Welcome to ban'sville, population - you. Well, usually a warning, then a ban if you insist on doing that.
The same will go for CSW, Calvin or anyone anywhere.

Are you crazy? Did you just say you'll protect CSW and Calvin? We've got a BSV shill here! Attackkk!!!!

No, no and no. We have no funds from BSV (as far as I know, the fund is non-custodial and permissionless - anyone can donate and cancel at any time), I've never contacted Calvin or CSW and I've been attacked by BSV people on multiple occasions and was accused of being a BSV shill on multiple occasions (besides people telling me to "fuck [my project]").
One thing I figured early on is that if you allow people to do something, you need to apply that rule to everyone.
Otherwise, you are a hippocrite and you should hang your head in shame.
If you allow people to mock and denigrate Amaury, Marc, BSV, BTC supporters, that's the fine line that you'll have to keep later on, when BTC and BSV supporters come. How come you're allowing people to mock a BTC supporter, yet you protect a BCH supporter? That's dishonest.
So we will have to allow BTC and BSV supporters to mock us and denigrate us. Because that's the rule. You allowed it!
They will be right.
So if we allow people to attack other people (even if I don't like them), everybody would be entitled to attack everybody.
That's where you start your journey to becoming a Crypto Twitter, where you will be attacked for nothing, where a snowball will roll on you (it did on me, but thats another story), where people would start to stalk you and try to ruin your life, because you like the coin they don't like.
That's a place which normal people won't ever join.
Read it again: No adoption for you, no world money!
So, you either have "no censorship" (which is really moderation) or you have normal people. Choose one, choose wisely, you won't be able to change it later.
We chose "normal people".
The plan was working fine (almost) until the eventful post.
But I will not revert this policy. I hope I explained why.

Koush: But you allow worse crimes to happen on!

Ok, here's a yellow press sensation worthy of! Listen carefully! #1 will shock you!
I am... one guy.
Yes, is a one-man shitshow.
I'm the backend developer, I'm the frontend developer, I'm the system administrator, I'm the moderator, I'm the policy maker, I'm the one who replies to 100+ emails daily on [email protected], I'm the one getting up to 200 notifications per day on, I'm the one who writes articles, I'm the one who wakes up at night when a server fails, I'm the one who logged 1000 hours developing according to my IDE's time tracking plugin, I'm the one responsible for the bug that took your money, I'm the one who returned you your money, I'm the one fighting spam, I'm the one writing code to catch spammers, I'm
I'm the one responsible to keep 7,500 comments per day (that's one comment every 10 seconds, 24/7), 800 articles per day, 400 short posts per day clean. See the stats yourself, the damn thing is growing and growing...
It is an impossible task. But I do read every one of 100+ reports sent to me per day. And each one of them is a moral dilemma for me - what to do here. This guy has copied an article from the Internet, but edited it so that it looks like another article, what do I do here? Ok, this guy is posting non-sense - is that against rules? It's surely annoying, but doesn't violate the rules. What to do here? Now try this 100 times a day. This guy, Koush, I know, he's a good guy, but now he's attacking the only guy who really helped when no one else did? WTF do I do here?
That's why I'm always telling people to report anything that they see that violates rules. I can't be everywhere. I can't make the right decision every time too. I'm a regular fucking person. Two legs, two hands, one medium-sized brain.
Ok, to be honest, a few months ago I asked a developer friend to join me to help (paid with my own money, not using fund for that), so he helps some 10 hours per month. That helps, surely, not enough.
Though I'll still call we, as it is still a registered company.
BTW To be clear - I never got any money from the fund, but I spent more than $5,000 giving away. Here's a screenshot from an internal tool that I call "the random rewarder":
As you can see, I'm entitled to about $1.31 - $1.39 for today, but I get $0.00. That was always the case, because I strongly believe that I must give it to people of to attract new users.
I also gave away 100% of the funds that came to me as tips on
BTW Did you notice that on the screenshot the guy who said "Marc de Mesel is Calvin Ayre Lite" and "fuck" got the top payment from the fund, which is at the moment 97% funded by Marc de Mesel?
My friend, the developer, who joined me, told me a few days ago: "I read your history on, you sound progressively ..." "..depressive and passively aggressive," I ended his sentence, "I know."
Yes, I know. I'm pretty passive agressive already, because every day I met with demands from users. "Why am I not getting paid?" "I work for for 8 hours a day, why is my pay so low?" "I sent some money and now I have $0.01 less than I should?" "How do I get sponsors?" "I think this guy is cheating!" "Hey, our family of 20 people joined and it says that I have 19 colocated accounts on the same IP! That's not true!"
I loathe my morning, when I open my email and there's 50 new alerts from Sentry, there are 100+ emails from users demanding stuff from me, accusing me of being unfair, wrong, an idiot, telling me "fuck"!
etc.. etc.. etc.. daily grind.. I never experienced anything like that. I was always a lead developer or manager managing small teams of 5-10 people. Nothing close to this shit I experience now.
You get progressively less sensitive. You start to think that it's ok to just delete an email, since you can't reply to everyone. You can't research why someone of 12,000 people didn't get paid, since the algorithms are now so complex that you yourself will have to spend a week just researching one guy why he gets $0.10 instead of maybe $0.50... you have no idea who your users are. The project is out of your control. But you can't do anything, because it's not profitable enough to even cover the server costs, let alone hire additional programmer or a support guy.
Then one day you log and see the beautiful garden full of dog shit. Crappy memes. A guy telling you "fuck you, there's $25K for the clone of this!" Thank God Shammah didn't offer that $25K for my head...
You find this about the only guy who really helped with money and demanded nothing in return (not a single condition was made) being compared to a midget version of a guy who was in a FBI Top Wanted list!
Again, Marc says he's ok with this, I'm not! Whoever did this meme is an asshole, I don't have any other words for this human. (Yes, I would have been banned on for this alone. You can ban me here, I no longer care...)
You find yourself increasingly grumpy, angry towards those around you, your family, because everybody is angry at you in the Internet, people are demanding and people is attacking the only people you can trust (Roger, Marc)...
You think about your previous nice cozy job. You think about 5 recruiters sending you daily mails to just name the price to join their company. You realize that these 9 months you could have made maybe $100,000, maybe $200,000 sitting on your ass, managing 5-10 people like you always did.. Instead you spent 9 months, $5,000 in Bitcoin Cash, got grumpy and depressed.
You start to ponder why you do this and whether you should even continue.
That's your future, Mr. Shammah Chancellor!
That's the reality of running a social media platform with cryptocurrency.
I will be happy to see your platform, Mr. "fuck", grow and flourish, but I warn you - it's not going to cost you $25K, but much much more. It's going to eat you alive if you are mildly successful with it and you have a little bit of conscience.
You will be attacked, you will be spammed. People will tell you "fuck you!"
I honestly have no idea why you think you will fare better than or
What's your advantage? being censorship free, so that people can shit and pee on each other?
Then one day 9 months later, 12,000 users, $50,000 in tips later, a guy will come in and tell you "Fuck you, Shammah and your project! Fuck you! I'm building a clone for $5K of this shit of a platform!" You will look at the clock where it's 8pm, you will look at your inbox, where there's still 50 more people yelling at you.. you'll ponder why do you even do this...
That day you'll understand me, Mr. Chancellor. Or maybe not, I have no idea what kind of a human being you are. Maybe you're reading this and laughing madly: "poor pussy can't take a beating! boo-hoo! Get off the internet, you wuss!" Maybe that's your thoughts, I don't know. You certainly don't seem to care about other people's feelings dismissing them as "complete bullshit".
Well kept gardens die by pacifism is a wonderful read about this.
Somewhere in the vastness of the Internet, it is happening even now. It was once a well-kept garden of intelligent discussion, where knowledgeable and interested folk came, attracted by the high quality of speech they saw ongoing. But into this garden comes a fool, and the level of discussion drops a little—or more than a little, if the fool is very prolific in their posting. (It is worse if the fool is just articulate enough that the former inhabitants of the garden feel obliged to respond, and correct misapprehensions—for then the fool dominates conversations.)
Peace, and out.
P.S. I remind people that there's an ongoing fundraiser going for, so anyone agreeing with "fuck" policy of Mr. Chancellor should cancel their donations while there's still time. It's very easy to cancel. Don't give your money to idealistic fools like me.
P.P.S. I blocked u/afriendofsatoshi, so somebody please forward it to him so he can humiliate me further, only on! Subscribe now!

They know everything about BCH!

They know everything about BCH!
Today I invited the four major development teams of BCH and the development team of BCH fundraising tool Flipstarter.
Question 1: This year is a year of DEFI explosion. What is the current situation of BCH's DEFI?
Flipstarter: The development of BCH can use the tool Flipstarter to obtain development funds. BCH will also have more and more smart contracts to provide more functions for the BCH public chain. We provide the AnyHedge protocol, which allows users to generate trustless, non-custodial financial derivatives on BCH.
BCHD: There is a big difference between Defi on Ethereum and Defi on BDH. On Ethereum, you actually send the token to the escrow agreement, and you will lose control of the token. On BCH, there is no need to trust or entrust any third party or third party agreement. Ethereum is a hosted Defi solution, and what Flipstarter will do is a non-custodial solution.
Flipstarter: The BCH script system has been extended to make complex smart contracts possible, and it works differently from Ethereum contracts. We believe that in the long run, UTXO-based contracts will have more advantages.
Follow-up: Why do you think UTXO-based contracts will have more advantages?
Flipstarter: Compared with Ethereum's huge, centralized smart contracts, BCH is a combination of a small number of people and many contracts, which are hashed and stored on the chain. Privacy is guaranteed to a large extent. After opening, you don't know that it is a contract. Because of privacy, security is guaranteed, and it is easier to upgrade.
Question 2: It is said that the BCH development team is too scattered, which will affect the development progress and efficiency. What do the teams think about this issue?
Verde: Having multiple development teams can improve the stability of the agreement. Due to a single code base, Bitcoin's multiple errors have become part of the protocol, and the diversity of development can ensure that these differences are captured and they are not inadvertently entered into the protocol.
In addition, the use of nodes in different languages can broaden the range of development talents. Not everyone likes C language or JAVA or GO. Therefore, the use of multiple computer assembly languages can increase the available talent pool.
Question 3: For Flipstarter, who pays the developers in the end?
Little P: Many communities have contributed different models before, and each method has successfully raised a lot of money. BCH has many invisible supporters, ROGER is a Giant whale, but there are other well-known BCH investors, such as MIKE KOMARANKSY and MARC DE MESEL.
Many developers are very supportive of BCH, so their salary requirements are also very reasonable. Development teams with reasonable requirements, including Giant whale of BCH, are willing to continue to support and make additional investments when there is progress.
The source of Flipstarter is a financing platform made by the EatBCH project, allowing the community to donate BCH to people in poor areas of the world.
BCHD: BCHD works with other teams to develop advanced features and hopes to stimulate people's interest in new technologies such as Neutrino wallet and UTXO contracts. Our goal is to improve BCH as a whole to meet the needs of the ecosystem.
BCHD is fortunate to have more contributors than other flipstarters. Not only a few people provided funding, but the entire BCH community united to support our efforts. We are very grateful for this!
BCHN: After Flipstarter's fundraising this time, we realized that there are indeed many senior talents, as long as you can tell them what you want to do. Those claims about the difficulty of fundraising on Flipstarter are untrue. But it does require thoughtfulness, planning, good communication, and good ideas.
Flipstarter: We have completed 164 pledge activities, valued at 2039BCH (approximately US$510,000). 100% of Flipstarter's donations are voluntary. We created Flipstarter, a technical tool, and encouraged others to also create a platform and use it to build a business.
You can learn more here:
Knuth: At Knuth, we adapted the Flipstarter page to fund our future development. You can see the preliminary version of our new campaign:
Question 4: How does BCH view POW and POS? Will you stick to POW?
BCHN: In the foreseeable future, the BCH team will stick to POW.
BCHD: The profit model of POW and POS is very different. BCHD believes that the profit model of POW cannot be replaced by other models, and POW has more advantages than other systems.
Verde: You can watch our developer conference on YouTube. I have not heard of any plans to switch to POS. I think PoW is a principle we will adhere to, even if it is a minority on the public chain.
Knuth: I have no answer. But all stakeholders need to agree on any change of this magnitude to make it happen.
Flipstarter: Here we discuss the working principle of Flipstarter and why it is safe.
Question 5: Does BCH have plans to cooperate with other Internet giants now?
BCHN: is cooperating with BRAVE browser. In this regard, ROGER is very capable, their wallets are cooperating with Huawei's new mobile phones.
Verde: Ohio, Dublin and other local governments are using BCH for their digital identity and token systems. We also discussed with a large retailer how to use BCH SLP to get rewards.
Little P: This is far away from developers at the protocol level, but there is more cooperation at the application level. Similar to VERDE, they use the BCH protocol to develop an ID card system with the local government and register on the chain.
Question 6: BTC has lightning network and side chain technology. BSV has gone further on the road of capacity expansion. How can BCH build its own advantages and competitiveness in the future?
BCHN: Many people think that all the problems of Lightning Network and Big Block technologies can be easily solved. Actually not, the Lightning Network is actually difficult to use, let alone side chains. BSV increases the block size, but the chain is unstable, and users cannot increase much. After all, adding some dispensable photos or videos does not have that big impact on the value. BCH should expand steadily while developing business needs.
Little P: BSV has not resolved the 25tx limit, BCH has reached 50, and there will be more in the later period, but the CORE source code leaves us with too many problems and we have to solve them one by one.
BCHD: BCH expansion is to increase capacity without sacrificing decentralization. The goal is above the demand, this is the premise. I think that while BCH can expand on the chain, layer2 is also considered. But the key is not to sacrifice on-chain expansion, and not to force users to trade on LAYER2, causing the main chain to become invalid.
Flipstarter: There are many people who believe in BCH. They have been working on BCH since the establishment of BTC. Other cryptocurrencies can do other things, but BCH clearly wants to be the best P2P cash.
Question 7: Does the Bitmain internal fight have any impact on BCH?
Little P: I don't think so, I am also a miner. In terms of computing power, many miners actually support BCH. And Bitmain has maintained a neutral attitude for many years, because they will eventually need to go public and be profit-oriented.
BCHN: On BCH, investors and developers are diverse. Activities like today can be organized more in the future. Let everyone understand that Bitmain is not the only one in the BCH ecosystem. Of course Bitmain has contributed to BCH, and we are also grateful for it.
Question 8: Are there any well-known applications developed based on BCH?
Flipstarter: This is a DeFi product developed by our General Protocols
BCHD: BCH can now achieve the scale of PAYPAL. Our goal is to focus on market demand to ensure decentralization, which includes new research and development: GRAPHENE, BOBTAIL, etc.
submitted by paulcheung1990 to Bitcoincash [link] [comments] – Bitcoin Cash Defi. Open Source. Decentralized. Future Of Derivatives.

Today I wanted to write about AnyHedge because it starts a new chapter in Bitcoin Cash history. For the first time since the creation of Bitcoin in 2009, it is possible to hedge or long prices of any asset, such as gold prices, housing markets, Tesla stock price, oil prices, mining hashrate prices, etc directly on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.
AnyHedge is open source and the goal is to bring in as much economic activity to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain as possible. I believe these economic activity can have a massive impact on the demand of Bitcoin Cash and leads to real world usage by financial markets currently outside of the crypto ecosystem.
However, blockchain development work is highly complex and requires very specialized skillset. And that’s why the team behind AnyHedge is building the open source infrastructure to make it easy so that even an idiot programmer can do it. And when it is super easy for developers to do it, then we empower them to create more value directly on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain, which in turn brings even more users and demand to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. There is no doubt that Bitcoin Cash will overtake BTC eventually. The time to accumulate Bitcoin Cash is today.
The future of Bitcoin Cash is very exciting and I think it makes sense to thank the people who made AnyHedge possible. These people are emergent_reasons, Jonathan Silverblood, im_uname, Marc De Mesel, and Molecular. If even one of them is removed, I am not even sure AnyHedge would be where it is today. It is also super amazing to have talented people like Rosco Kalis and Marcel to reinforce this all-stars Bitcoin Cash team.
The best way to predict the future is to build it, and thanks to these people, they are building a bright future for Bitcoin Cash.

We must become organised to stop a corruption of the BCH protocol

Yesterday BitcoinABC released version 0.21 of their client. In this release a consensus rule is included that requires all BCH miners to pay 5% of their block subsidy and 5% of the fees they receive to a set of up to 4 BCH addresses. These addresses are controlled by:
This significant change in the protocol is to be activated using a BIP9 method. It will activate when at least 66% of 2016 blocks are produced by miners running their new release. There is no end date for the tax once it has been activated, so it will go on indefinitely unless manually removed with another hardfork.
This is occurring in the context of an almost unanimous opposition by the BCH ecosystem of businesses, miners, projects and users. This is something that they are fully aware of and have decided to ignore and push ahead anyway.
While it is of course true that the community needs to make sure there is sufficient funding for the projects within the BCH ecosystem that deserve it, and that the funding is provided voluntarily, there are currently numerous efforts under way to create software that makes this as simple as possible. For example, Flipstarter, U-DID, , and pool Donations. There is also a significant amount of will in the community to provide funding if sensible and concrete proposals are put forward.
This change is not only a fundamental change to the properties of Bitcoin as described in the original whitepaper, but has the high likelihood of causing a major split if the entire ecosystem does not work towards stopping it from happening.
Many of us are now organising an effort to oppose this fundamental change. We need as much of the ecosystem as possible to put their effort into stopping this if you don't want this to happen, so please join us at:

In the interest of showing again just how much of the ecosystem is against this change I have added the list again below.

Businesses, Infrastructure, Projects & Institutions

Today I wanted to write about AnyHedge because it starts a new chapter in Bitcoin Cash history. For the first time since the creation of Bitcoin in 2009, it is possible to hedge or long prices of any asset, such as gold prices, housing markets, Tesla stock price, oil prices, mining hashrate prices, etc directly on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain.
AnyHedge is open source and the goal is to bring in as much economic activity to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain as possible. I believe these economic activity can have a massive impact on the demand of Bitcoin Cash and leads to real world usage by financial markets currently outside of the crypto ecosystem.

Byteball - What's happening!?

Here’s a recap of some the more recent eventful stuff going on in the Byteball space. If you missed the previous version it can be found here.
For those of you who don’t know anything about Byteball yet, I recommend you to check out the website. Even better, read the whitepaper. Still have questions? Check out the wiki.
The benefits in short: Byteball has a user friendly wallet, it’s fast, has no PoW/PoS yet is still 100% trustless, very active development, extremely strong privacy through Blackbytes, human readable smart contracts that actually work already (insurance, prediction market, lottery, betting bot, blackbytes exchange, altcoin exchange, etc.), a fair distribution, and a limited supply.
For those of you already familiar with Byteball, here we go:
Perhaps the biggest news of the past few weeks is the release of Byteball wallet version 2.0 which contains a brilliant feature called textcoin. Let me explain.
So far in crypto we have been using cryptic addresses like 1BtjAzWGLyAavUkbw3QsyzzNDKdtPXk95D or TKT4UESIKTTRALRRLWS4SENSTJX6ODCW. The recipient has to already be known in the system, and you need to ask him his address. Then, after a payment is sent, there is no easy way to tell who was the recipient. Not quite user friendly for mass adoption. Now, this is going to change.
With the release of Byteball wallet version 2.0, Byteball users can send Bytes to e-mail or chat. Even if the recipient doesn’t have a Byteball wallet yet!
Let that sink in for a second. Yes, it’s awesome.
Read more about it in this Medium article.
To make this feature even better developers can now also use textcoins to send money to email or via chat and the Byteball cashback Bytes can also be sent to e-mail addresses. Don’t be surprised if you hear a lot more about this in my next recap. As a reminder, you can still enter the cashback program.
Even more info on our wiki. Two new merchants were added lately, a Grammy award winning music studio in England and a Japanese store.
If you haven’t looked at it before, the first worldwide beta test of Bytes distribution through physical stores is taking place in Milan, Italy. Read all about it here.
Bitcoin Wednesday
Lead developer Tony Churyumov revealed the textcoin feature at Bitcoin Wednesday in Amsterdam on December 8th. Of course I was there to shake hands with him and listen to his amazing story. There were a couple hundred visitors there but Byteball deserves a much bigger audience than that. So at the moment I’m working on reproducing his presentation in a series of 4 videos, keep an eye on our subreddit for the release of those. Before January 1st, I promise! :)
Another great feature that was released recently are the Freebe Byteball give-away-vouchers. So of course we gave away some MegaBytes and MegaBlackbytes at Bitcoin Wednesday. A great way to introduce new people to Byteball! I encourage you all to print some and give away to your friends and family.
Tony was also at to talk about parametric insurance powered by smart contracts. It was above the heads of many people in the audience but it’s nice to see real world serious coverage of crypto topics instead of all the speculation / bubble talk / TA courses / ICO hype presentations floating around. Marc de Mesel was also there and he did a 3 part interview with Tony. In a bar I might add so you need to have some noise tolerance to watch these. Then again, Tony doesn’t give many interviews so you should still watch them:
Part 1: why is DAG better than blockchain?
Part 2: how private are Blackbytes? | the Byteball cashback program
Part 3: conditional payments
In other news
So, did anything else happen? Well, Richard Heart endorsed Byteball in an interview, he named Byteball and Monero as the only altcoins he cares about. Proof. Whether that pulled Byteball out of it’s death spiral versus BTC or the insane rise of IOTA and XRB did, I don’t know. Fact is that trading volume picked up and price recovered a bit. Compared to both IOTA and RaiBlocks, Byteball is still very cheap, 1/millionth of the total supply is still only ~$550 at the time of writing. The entrance fee for the equivalent of the “1 in a million 21 BTC club” for Byteball is only ~$550. Don’t know what more to say really.
Talking about DAG coins, many people still don’t even know Byteball exists, let alone that it uses a DAG. This post made a lot of people aware and a bunch of other articles about DAG vs blockchain also helped spread the word about Byteball. Many are calling 2018 the “year of the DAG” already. Exciting times ahead!
So, I hope you enjoyed reading this short overview. In order not to miss anything in the future just subscribe to our subreddit and join our Telegram group. We are working on a new Slack invite page but in the mean time you can just DM me with your e-mail address and I’ll throw you an invite. We have very lively discussion over there. Yes, also about the name and the logo ;)
Oh and one more thing ….
Who says we never do any marketing?
Now, back to working on those videos!

225 Good YouTubers & 30 Bad Ones! (Help Me Verify)

I am finalizing my list for CryptoInfluence - The link is a beta version.
I've made several topics on this Reddit asking for input and received a tons of suggestions!
This site is an offshoot of my popular platform which is used by YouTubers to help get Sponsorships/Partnerships from brands. Brands use the platform search for YouTubers to advertise their products. Once the list is narrowed down they view their profiles and can choose to purchase their advanced profiles in order to view their audience demographics & to contact them.
YouTubers get 50% of the price paid by brands to view their profiles & contact them. They keep 100% of whatever sponsorship deal they negotiate. This has been very successful so far. Up until recently the most popular searches were were Gaming & Fashion YouTubers.
Over the summer we never received any requests for Crypto Influencers. Now we get 12 a day, making Crypto YouTubers our top category!
The biggest complaint is that brands keep choosing the wrong ones and getting scammed. The Crypto Boom is so new that their are not very many "trusted" channels yet. There are no million+ channels. Most of the channels are a few months old between 1-20k subscribers. Its very difficult for them to choose.
The site should do 3 things:
1. Allow brands to easily find quality YouTubers to partner with. Leading to both sides to profit.
2. Blacklist the scammer channels, and keep them from monetizing their channels. (There will be a form to report Scammers)
3. Clear out my inbox ;-)
Below is the current list, sorted by number of subscribers (except the bottom 10 or so). Please help me verify any scammers. The ones I really need help with are at the very below. Also, if you know of any good channels that I don't have listed please let me know! Thanks a bunch!
When the site is done, the channels will be ranked via an algorithm that is less dependent upon subscriber numbers, and more dependent upon relevant content, activity, and audience engagement. This should be able to properly rank that "Good" channels from the more "Mediocre" ones. There will also be a sorter (similar to our advanced search) where you can re-list the channels based on audience demographics, country, language, average views, etc.
