  • The Cryptocurrency Adoption Dilemma



    The landscape has sure changed, from 2012 times, when you could order a 50 – 100 dollar bitcoin miner and make a few thousand dollars from it alone. We now have multi-billion dollar market caps for some altcoins, yet we have something that hasn’t changed, the thought that when you have some cryptocurrency, you need to exit when the time is right into fiat. It’s this exact issue, that is causing the seasonality of prices, and will not equal a sustainable future for cryptocurrency.

    The way many in the cryptocurrency industry handled mass adoption, was by air drops and mass give aways, all stating the profits to be gained when the price rises, however, that’s not the real reason people should be using cryptocurrency, nor is it how you get people to adopt it. It’s how you create a medium where people don’t learn they just use until they can’t anymore. What happens when you give away fish, instead of teaching how to fish, well that’s what we have in the cryptocurrency world now, lots of people who know about cryptocurrency, but don’t understand what it is or how to even innovate on or off it.

    Teaching The World About Cryptocurrency

    Our mission at altcurrencyhelp has always been to teach, it’s why we’re a non profit and why we will try to stay such. The main reason cryptocurrency hasn’t taken off as fast as many would of thought, is because many push the aspect of profits instead of the aspects of data. We can do so much more than transact ledgers online with crypto, we can organize and incentivize the world.

    Innovation spurs development, and demand speeds said development thus innovation even further, so what we’re missing here, is the ability to tell the cryptocurrency story in the proper way, to spur creative thought, and that isn’t going to happen, until we educate the masses about what and how cryptocurrency can change the world.

    Stop saying the old repeated rhetoric, of ” it’s used for voting, shipping, data storage ” and start talking about the nitty gritty, lay it all out and then some. The people of the planet will thank you, we all will thank you, by using this amazing technology to innovate even further to truly bring about justice and equality for once, not just some tired perspective, but an actual view from all.





The Rise Of The Consumer Via Decentralized Blockchains



Bitcoin has come along way, and so have the altcoin ecosystem. Many altcoins have fallen to be a fraction of their worth, to some being powerhouses of the cyrptocurrency world. New technologies and patents alongside big companies such as IBM, Deloitte, Walmart, NewEgg, and many more have joined ranks with new startsups to form some unique alliances. Tokenized tracking systems for food storage to transcontinental shipping monitoring, the new wave of fresh ideas flooding the investor space is something not seen since the dotcom boom.

Think outside the blockchain with Mesh Networks

Some companies have decided it’s more fun to unite the many altcoins, and have been working towards such a goal. Such as these alternatives to conventional internet providers, internet via any mobile device and one where you get paid to share your connection:

  • Blockmesh  – a device to device mesh network on the blockchain to establish a communications network where otherwise would be difficult, operating via bluetooh and wifi.
  • Rightmesh  – a device to device mesh network on the blockchain to establish a communications network where otherwise would be difficult, operating via bluetooh and wifi.
  • Smartmesh – An participation based earning ad-hoc mesh network on the blockchain, established via radio signals on mobile devices.

Yet not many have been seen trying to create a sustainable cryptocurrency future, instead of a dominance, and if you think about the way technology evolves, it’s safe to think there will be a need for multiple blockchains all doing different things, needing inter connectivity and a baseline to communicate / transact with.

A Future With More Choices and Less Restriction

By allowing more companies the ability to track and monitor costs, they’ll be forced to pass that down to the consumers or face the competition of startups, doing exactly that, at a bigger profit than themselves. By monitoring costs, companies can more efficiently carry out daily operations, while reducing the amount of overhead needed, where otherwise little bits here and there aren’t tracked and add up in the end.

The blockchain will also allow media companies the ability to provide just what the consumer wants or give their business to the competitor. The ability to track and mesh the micro-transactions of royalties, ads, data purchases will make consumer marketing that much easier, passing the savings and new features to the consumer, with less strings and more on demand service.

Altogether the blockchain can allow for movie and tv networks to directly sell shows to the consumer, much like they’re doing now, but on a much more broader basis and without much effort by the consumer, the key to sales in general, don’t be a burden to your consumers or face bankruptcy.

A CDN For Speed and Neural Net Indeed

Play2Live Has Implemented A CDN To Speed Up Content Delivery And also at the time of their closed beta launch, announced the buy back of LUC tokens, 10 million to 100 million LUC are redeemed by the exchanges themselves for 0.05 cents per LUC.

A Neural net has been developed as well, to help monitor the video streams and help with task monitoring.

Gaming Competitions On The Blockchain!

Competitions have already begun, such as Cryptomasters that was launched in Feb 2018, it’s an exciting time we are in, and the future of technology just keeps unfolding in front of us!

 

 





How Copyright On The Blockchain Might Work



Can anyone post my content without my permission?

  • Not currently, however the future is full of disruption, and content is at the heart of such.
    • It’s a technical issue preventing content from being distributed, but the technology to change this isn’t that difficult and is only a matter of time before content copyright issues spring up on the blockchain.

Copyright Laws Outside Of The Blockchain Scope

  • It varies greatly from country to country, however copyright protection is generally applied when content was created

How Copyright Could Be Officially Used On The Blockchain

  • Governments around the world would want to participate and utilized this technology, as it will reduce costs of frivolousness lawsuits

How Industries Could Get Involved

  • Using the blockchain and even existing or new altcoins, industries could leverage copyrighted material to garner further interest in new products, streaming services, create a better more accurate pay per view for ad content and even inhouse offerings.

Social Media Posts And Copyrights

  • This is the muddy water part of copyright, some content is still not clearly distinguished even by the WIPO ( World Intellectual Property Organization ) and will need to be further researched to come to a equal and just outcome.

Copyright Rule Exceptions

  • As with everything, there will be exceptions, you cannot have a future where nothing is freely expressed, nor can you have a future where everything is owned and controlled, a balance is needed and this is where that balance takes shape.
  • It will be interesting to see how the future of blockchain copyright and it’s exceptions will play out, but one thing is for sure, there will be more clear and fair oversight in the matter ongoing.

 

 





Cloudflare Introduces New Decentralized Content Gateway



Major Content Delivery Network Introduces Decentralized Content Gateway

This is a big deal, it means that Cloudflare will now have the ability to distribute content via it’s Interplanetary File System ( IPFS ),  with a distributed web gateway, you could securely view files from anyone, anywhere in the world using the SAME address, so a reduction in fraud and fake newsites could be a positive at 1st glance.

Nothing is needed to download

Before you can view files / webpages hosted on IPFS. That’s a pretty nice deal, not having to download anything and just using a url prefix to attach you’re content to can be seen as a nice switch from previous social media / networking platforms efforts. We will see how this unfolds, but the future of blockchain possibilities is upon us.

Interested? Give it a go yourself!
