>>7736342

Incredibly afraid, consider not only that you control more than 1% of what may become a truly critical piece of digital infrastructure in the future (the nature of any consensus protocol is to form a positive feedback loop and monopolise, hence why it's important LINK deploys first) but you always had the resolve and fortitude to not sell at 1/10/100 USD, as a 22 y.o that would make you very dangerous indeed.

Imagine if there is someone that has 1 million ethereum who has for whatever reason not sold, that means they held through 1 million used, 10, 100, 200, 400, etc, and now that have almost 1 billion USD. This is like a cancer cell, you can ignore it now but they get more and more powerful if you do. If ethereum reaches it's loftier expectations this individual could be worth 1% of a trillion dollars. Now then imagine if there were 50 or 100 people who controlled 10%, and so on. I'm not saying this is their primary hindrance, what I am saying is their in no rush and they see any crash as a win-win for now, so will institutional money buy in: yes, will they FOMO in with market orders: no. This may seem obvious to you, but to many people it isn't.

Thoughts on yesterday's pump?

tl;dr
>>
>>7736722

Correct, you see this is all a new revolutionary paradigm to the hoi poloi, but 'disruptive' technology is not as disruptive as it's marketed. It all plays out rather predictably for the serious money, granted crypto has taken them for a bigger turn than most new technologies (they don't even try to hide this anymore) but the general thought it: establish the most suitable infrastructure candidate first and foremost, acquire control of this, then start developing and investing in 'products'. Ethereum is the only thing that can be likened to 'infrastructure' right now, and legacy investors are going to focus mostly on that and then things that are actual services/products. ChainLINK would also fall into the category of infrastructure.
>>
>>7736722
well theres more money to be made with eth. It's cheaper so they can scoop up more.

A few weeks ago you said this document was 1 of 2 documents that confirmed that SWIFT is actually pushing for an open banking inititiative and explicitly states that they want to achieve this via “community driven decentralised networks”

This anon is asking the right questions. Written by the same guy as the one you linked.

https://www.swiftinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Markos-Pinar-Damian-Open-APIs.pdf

Slides 7-9 are particularly important.

And this isn't even everything but the other documents are not publicly available on the internet.
>>
>>7736793
What's happening with permissioned blockchains? SWIFT itself ran the poc on hyperledger, and project ubin (rumors about chainlink implementation) seemed to test Quorum, corda, and hyperledger. Will they really say fuck it them and use a public blockchain?
>>
>>7736231
TY AB As always a pleasure
>>
>>7737104

They will absolutely not use a public blockchain, the LINK token is built on Ethereum which acts as a contract administrator to ensure node payments, the LINK Node NETWORK itself will handle datat processing and will do so for public and private blockchains. This is clear to anyone who has read the whitepaper or even understands what the point of ERC20 is, stop thinking that the token is the product, it's the deed to the product, the product is the network.
>>
we.trade (formerly digital trade chain consortium) is also launching their test product in february allegedly, any truth to that being a chainlink implementation? Project ubin phase 3 is happening this quarter and it's running tests on Singapore Exchange bond payments.
>>
>>7737104
Doubt it. That's why I think AB is a LARPer. HyperLedger is being worked on by a multitude of corporations. I doubt they will ever actually use Ethereum. HyperLedger is built FROM Ethereum. Why use the public chain when you can just use the private chain instead and not deal with those "mined Bitcoin a decade ago" millionaires? He's definitely a LARPer.

>>
>>7737167
I don't mean for chainlink itself I was just asking about the future of smart contract deployment and the potential future value of ether. Would they choose ethereum or permissioned blockchains was the question really. You seem to see a lot of stuff saying corporations don't find a public blockchain suitable for their use because of privacy issues.
>>
>>7737220
Are you retarded, he posted to tell us that there would be a crash, baka.
>>
>>7737220

I posted right before ChainLINK increased saying it would increase that same week. Also right before the crash I told everyone to get out of any shitcoins, I didn't know the extent of the crash, no one can predict that, but any anons who followed my advice saved and made a lot of money. Not that past performance is a future indicator, always DYOR but don't spread baseless accusations in my threads.

Also another document some anons should go through for clues:

http://www3.weforum.org/docs/WEF_The_future__of_financial_services.pdf

Notice the guy who works for SWIFT as well, he'll be important later.

Why do you even live?
>>
>>7737273
do you think chian link will dump a little after the talks?
>>
>>7737251

Because corporations see Ethereum as the legislative branch of the growing data economy. See the nature of legislation is that it is decentralised, or must at least partially be, your question is sort of like saying 'why would corporations donate to presidential campaigns instead of just forcing their own president on the American people', Ethereum derives its value from being public and decentralised. It's disruptive but legacy corporations have more to gain adapting and adopting than fighting. Fighting has never worked.

Ah okay, that's sort of what i've been tumbling over in my head. Whether they'd shoehorn what they've been doing into permissioned blockchains as long as they could or if a real revolution would happen. We had a bitcoin frenzy this winter, we'll have an ethereum frenzy as the mainstream media begins focusing on what it means for society in the coming months I think. After they've accumulated I'm sure.
>>
>I asked about ChainLINK

To the trash it goes
>>
>>7737337

Don't know. Also Hyperledger will see growth and adoption, but there must be a point of interface between Hyperledger and Ethereum, because there is no value in a truly centralised ledger precisely because blockchain ledgers are actually extremely inefficient. If they were revolutionary technology they would have been adopted two decades ago, the entire point of blockchain is it is community driven and decentralised. If you do even a little bit of digging into bank research this has been a hot topic for literally several years. You are blinded by this cynical assumption that they'll never co-operate with a bunch of 'loser' early adopter NEETs, etc. but this is facile reasoning. It's a bit like saying corporations will make their own private internet and they would never allow for a bunch of losers to have access to all the media in the world and for university students to program websites and become billionaires. Then in retrospect it all seems so inevitable.

Change is the only constant.

Link will never be over $10 despite what assblaster says. Screencap this.
>>
>>7737190
He won't. He's fucking LARPing hard man. I can't believe people fall for this shit. Is everyone in here a fucking teenager?

Sure, AB could be working in the financial industry. But so far his love to ChainLink doesn't come from it's popularity in that industry but because he PERSONALLY thinks it's a good investment. That's it. So far he has mentioned he talked to two people about ChainLink and none of them have a clue about it according to him.

Then we also uncovered IBM papers talking about Oracles and they never once mention ChainLink.

Then we found out that the ChainLink contract between Sony AXA was actually a test done in a hackathon by Sergey and it has nothing to do with Sony and AXA.

So really, the only connection to the financial industry I see is the SWIFT PoC. But just because they did a PoC it doesn't mean it will really be used. In fact, the IBM papers tells us they're building an in house oracle.

Then you have SmartContract.com front page saying they're working directly with SWIFT to create their own "Smart Oracles".

Then you have SWIFT gpi releasing this quarter. How can SWIFT be really using ChainLink if the actual full main net of ChainLink won't be live until later this year or early next year? It's obvious that swift is not going to use ChainLink from all those hints.

ChainLink is not trash though. I myself own 60k LINKs because I know it's functionality is beyond SWIFT. But seriously, AB is a LARPer. Literally every he comes on there is a pump followed by a dump. IMO he could be from a circle of pump and dumpers and they're fooling everyone on 4chan because of it. I know it's hard to admit but that's the reality. And unlike plebbit harsh truth are always realized here.

Is there any news on the state of chainlink? Are more firms and data providers committing to setting up nodes and selling APIs to node operators? Is there more evidence than last time you were here that Sergey has been succsful with finding data providers and smart contract writers for launch? Several of the larpers have seemed to focus on that aspect, Swisscom in particular is supposed to have been busy.

I believe skepticism is healthy and you honestly shouldn't trust anything I say because you want it to be true, nor anyones. Instead evaluate what I say based on it's intuitive logic and the leads I present based on what the content of those leads are.

>>7737488

Follow people more than terms. I see too many people looking through documents for the exact word 'ChainLINK' instead look for names popping up across documents. This is a much harder web to untangle but it yields better answers.

>>7737509

WEF is a forum where many ideas and developments are discussed and exchanged, I'm telling you to try and piece together a picture several years in the making, look for trends and terms and people across industries. Not to even mention Ripple and ChainLINK aren't actually competitors.

What's your estimated cut of smart contract value for the chainlink network? If you're writing a smart contract for 1 million and using the chainlink network, what percentage of that is being paid out to the network? 1%? .1%?

It is interesting, and surely no coincidence, that the deployment timeline for LINK is right on schedule for the entrance of legacy corporations.

This is fucking intense. Are we effectively on a make-or-break path now?

>Follow people more than terms. I see too many people looking through documents for the exact word 'ChainLINK' instead look for names popping up across documents. This is a much harder web to untangle but it yields better answers.

Well I was in a hospital for several months and my gf left me and during that time I just forgot about ETH. I would have sold it ALL at 10-100 USD. Guess getting into a car accident was the luckiest moment of my life. I do not even know what to do now. Should I just market sell it all and crash the ship with no survivors? Nah. If what you say is true, I want to be important with all my ETH. They can come to me and ask nicely.

How is this false? Prove it! I've read through the entire thread when it was happening. I've read through ever link that was posted that day. And literally there was ZERO mention of ChainLink even though they were talking abiut Oracles and the sentiment that I got from the papers is that they are working on an in house oracle.

If you think I'm lying, then prove to that ChainLink was actually mentioned in those papers. Go ahead. Post a screenshot. Post a link. Show me. But you won't because you can't.

I'm invested in ChainLink myself. Im all in. But there is a huge fetish here over finding new information about ChainLink since there is never news. 4chan is essentially hallucinating at this point trying to see "hints" everywhere when there are none.
>>
>>7737662

Docusign will be huge, don't know about PDFS, but perhaps the biggest source of clues is PSD2, start reading through documents planning and discussing PSD2 and look for names and then try to trace them back to LINK. I'm not trying to be deliberately vague, it's just I know of a few very specific examples that I absolutely cannot divulge, but I suspect there are more.

That document is false and anyone who fell for it is a retard, the cons don't even make sense. That does not mean IBM isn't involved with ChainLINK, however if you're looking at IBM as a sign of value, don't. They have serious cashflow issues and the corporation is basically whoring itself out to any remotely new tech to excite investors. This is why Stellar Lumens got blown out despite the IBM 'connections'.

This is honestly the last one I'm linking:

Page 4:

The paper also flags a number of prerequisites for blockchain to fulfil its potential
in financial services – and beyond. Key among these is achieving a standard way
of implementing the technology. A shared ledgering technology that can provide a
consistent view across the broad business network needs a standard way of transferring
ledger data. Organisations will participate in multiple ledgers – an FX network, a bond
network, et cetera. Just as the internet and intranets share the same technology, so the
blockchain proposition needs interoperability to function.

Basically, whether you invest in NEO or ETH, I can't honestly advise you, too many factors. What I can say is look for infrastructure that understands the origin of value. Do not look at 'digital stamps' like Ripple and Raiblocks that basically do nothing. They want to dethrone BTC but the value case for BTC is an entirely different story I can't get into now. But I've gone on a lot about my hatred for Raiblocks and to a lesser extent Ripple, in previous threads.

How long do you think LINK's lifespan will be? LINK seems to be the temporary bridge the banks will be using to connect to the blockchain, but eventually they'll fully integrate themselves to it. Seems it's only a matter of time. LINK should be good for several years though, right?

>>
>>7739409

Trash, try to exit at a good price since it might still go up but the notion of 'tokenizing' assets reveals a great deal of ignorance regarding effective use cases for cryptographically secured tokens. There is no real utility to using tokens to control an asset vs using bonds or legal instruments, tokenisation works better for data assetisation, like LINK aims to do for API networks.

>>7739425
Because a cryptographic currency is essentially a fiat currency, which is a currency built on trust, the only currency people will ever trust is Bitcoin because ever since Bitcoin hit 1 USD, no one has been able to find a way to distribute a competitor in a trustworthy, safe, and random way. Therefore every currency that will ever launch that is not BTC or a BTC fork is compromised from day 1.
Ripple: centralised printing press, Raiblocks: 'muh captcha!', and so on. Just about any new blockchain that gets minted going forward will be jumped on and dissected by Chinese speculators armed with ASICs and GPU farms trying to get a controlling stake. We as a society really only had ONE shot at a true decentralised fiat currency, and that is bitcoin, blockstream might kill it, but Raiblocks and Ripple are basically just encrypted SMS messages at this point. I.e. DOA.

No one wants to repeat the bitcoin pizza, which means the only real "currency" cryptos that will succeed and reach mass adoption are stablecoins.

The real money is gen 2 and gen 3 crypto. Specifically investing in protocols that have different value propositions than traditional cryptocurrencies like BTC/LTC etc

>>7739743

Best way to distribute coins, bar slowly releasing them over 5 years under the radar. The market cap of BTC didn't even hit 1BN until 2012/2013 (IIRC), you're never going to recreate that perfect storm which is why it's tragic in a way that Satoshi never left behind a resolution around blocksize. But any way you slice it, no coin will ever be trusted like BTC, no coin will ever have had the trial by fire. You see when you look at Raiblocks you look at it like 'hmm well maybe I'll throw in 100k and it'll 5x!' it's an investment, but you gotta think of the endgame, do you ever see someone like Gaddafi entrusting his illicit fortune (200BN according to some estimates) to Raiblocks? It's never gonna happen, and because the endgame can't happen, the well is already poisoned and everyone in the game is always looking for an out. It then becomes a feedback loop of booms and busts, much more so than any tradition asset or even BTC.

XMR should be treated like a massive decentralised 'tumbler' for bitcoins. It's undervalued as such and has room to grow, but it's basic use case is mostly going to be to 'anonymize' bitcoins from DNMs.

Thoughts on MAN?
>>
>>7740297

It is a meme, it could be profitable, but long term the sector will most likely be dominated by giant gambling corporations using proprietary software. Ironically I think decentralisation is almost less important for gambling agencies since gamblers are not especially risk averse. In other words your average gambler isn't going to want to make sure that his bets are secured and provably fair. The gambling 'market' is 60 billion USD but it's predominantly driven by the most uneducated type of person you can imagine.

Proprietary software makes more sense from a network congestion/maintenance standpoint as well.

Yes interesting, I hadn't thought of it like that but it's obvious. But let me get it straight though. If I sell something & someone gives me btc for it, if I then sell those btc for xmr, then sell that xmr right back to btc, with the right opsec either side, that's enough to tumble my coins?

Yes, however we don't know what various exchanges and government stances will be on bitcoin that originates from an anonymous XMR transaction. No one will be able to track the route of your BTC, but exchanges could simply refuse to cash out all anonymous bitcoins. Although this scenario is extremely unlikely and it very much defcon 1.

Except that you are wrong because it already works. It can't help if the exchanges it's on are crap and fraudulent. The code is being tweaked to fix bugs and make it better. It's only been a few months since the tap was shut off. It needs time to get up to snuff.

If you go to the website for the Consensus 2016 Building Blocks Hackathon and scroll through the submitted projects one link will take you here:

https://devpost.com/software/cyber-insurance-smart-contract

One of the links is to the Axa/Sony contract, which has a timestamp from during the hackathon.
There's no proof that Axa and Sony were totally uninvolved but it seems unlikely that Sergey and Steve wouldn't mention that involvement in their project description (it might have helped them win the hackathon!). So they were probably just used to illustrate potential usecases.

It's on binance and mercatox both working fine. Are you surprised a new currency isn't on a lot of exchanges?

How do you explain this:

https://create.smartcontract.com/#/contracts/fa4703cb68e3c152a9f47bafd57fe1fa

This contract is owned by AXA not by SmartContract like the first one from the hackathon. If you're saying that account isn't AXA and it's Sergey, why would a company that large allow him to use their name for some dipshit crypto project?

Notice the one from the hackathon was owned by SmartContract and failed. The most recent one was successful and is owned by the AXA account. What about the more likely possibility that the hackathon was used as an example to illustrate potential to AXA and the most recent one was a test done by AXA themselves? This is a testnet after all and that would be the point

But this is precisely why fungibility is nonnegotiable for big money. Russian oligarchs trying to evade sanctions, for example, run the very serious risk that their bitcoins could be blacklisted by all respectable Western companies, becoming effectively worthless. And no one with millions wants their every tx to be tracked, even if they're totally above board, because information is power and you don't give it away to potentially malevolent strangers for free if you can help it. A privacy coin, most likely Monero if it can solve scaling, will replace Bitcoin, it's only a matter of time.

fuck me I just learned so much from this thread

What does AB/anyone else think of DEX's? 0x, LRC, Kyber, etc.
>>
>>7743637

Not at all, consider that liquidity is the top concern, no privacy/fungibility coin will EVER have enough liquidity to handle big corrupt money, by some estimates Russians have hundreds of billions of dirty money. However they are already using fronts and firms to launder this money in *barely* (key word) legal ways, one of these ways is Art. Art is huge for money laundering, what bitcoin will enough is an additional settlement layer and added liquidity for the entry nodes of these firms.

E.g. Boris buys painting for 50 million via his totally legitimate chum and baron Francis May, (their kids study at Eton together) this takes a long time because the auctions have to be arranged, the painting must be inspected for forgery etc. Instead this private equity firm that used to simply acquire Art for it's collectors will instead hold bitcoins as a more liquid readily available asset. The booking keeping will still show money in, Art out, but in the meantime those bitcoins will act as liquidity whilst still being kosher.

This is one of MANY ways to circumvent sanctions using bitcoin. Another is monero as a tumbling cloud, foreign business as shell companies, etc. Only drug dealers are going to find fungibility a must.
>>
>>7743732
Details. Notice how the AXA handle is the same as the official AXA UK twitter handle. Whereas the one for Sony is a bogus twitter handle. Do you really think for a second that AXA would allow Sergey to involve them without permission?

Yo AB, I'm all in on that ICO you mentioned in the other thread (i was before you posted the thread). Did I fuck myself?
>>
>>7743755

All good, I consider them bluechips, but DEX's have many hurdles to face. Serious investors want not just speed, but Fiat pairings and margin lending, unless serious scalability comes to Ethereum as a whole and these DEXs find way to produce receipts, then traditional exchanges will actually generate more revenue. Given they are regulation friendly and transparent. In fact there's one such exchange I recommend DYOR, it's in ICO phase now but unsold tokens get burned. I don't normally shill coins, but just DYOR.

How can you be so sure? That sounds like something a skeptic might have said about Bitcoin a year ago.
And using a tumblr/exchanging Bitcoin for monero and back again is itself a sign of suspicious activity that money launderers would prefer to avoid. The rest of your post is spot-on, but using a publicly readable ledger is an unnecessary risk, especially as blockchain analysis is only getting more sophisticated.
All Bitcoin can offer currently is liquidity and name-recognition, both of which will come to technologically superior competitors with time.
I appreciate you threads by the way, even if I've been critical in them, because they're miles better than the typical /biz/ narishkeit.

Not the logos, the actual handle. That handle name @AXAInsurance is the brand name for their UK twitter account. Sure you could use their logo and they wouldn't care, but they would care if some guy is using their account handle for some shit crypto project they had no interest in. Hence why the Sony one is @SonyCorporation (bogus account) and not @Sony. Also the latest contract is literally titled "AXA Cyber Security Insurance". A company of their magnitude would not just let this fly

I really like the project but the sheer amount of competition worries me. If it is successful I don't see any reason why it wouldn't moon as hard as bnb or kcs, it offers a much wider set of services and instead of being open to those who already own crypto(small percent of the population) it'll also be open to pretty much the entire population due to fiat deposits.

>>
>>7744243

Right exactly, bitcoin will simply add liquidity operating as an additional layer. Because finding a buyer or waiting for auction is not time or cost effective. Expect to see private equity firms that handle 'pools' of bitcoin for many clients, some legitimate, some illegitimate, and those private equity firms will have direct dealings with other firms dealing in art etc. So bitcoin will inject some much needed liquidity and mobility into the money laundering business, and there is almost zero chance the government or sanctions will be able to stop it at that level (the 0.01%ers) because they have been unable to so far.

When I say handle 'big corrupt' money I mean say in the region of say 300-500 billion dirty money from Russia, to handle the liquidity of that much money moving around (they don't want to destabilise the entire network, it needs to remain decentralised) you would need a market cap of approximately 2-3 trillion at a MINIMUM. Monero will never achieve that, or if it did we should all buy going all in since that'd put Monero at 150k+.

It's possible, since AXA is actually an innovator in this space. Check out Fizzy if you haven't, it's an AXA project that uses smart contracts for flight insurance, and as far as I know it wasn't announced yet when these contracts were deployed on SmartContract.com.
That being said, as the guy who originally uncovered the hackathon thing, it doesn't make sense that they would use AXA's logo for a hackathon if they wanted to keep a real partnership under wraps, and it doesn't make sense that they would neglect to mention such a prestigious partnership if they were trying to win the hackathon.
Also I've uncovered an old powerpoint used by Sergey that included contracts from other big players, including Maersk and Macy's (pic related). When I checked the contract address he had changed the names to generic ones, like "Global Supplier" and "Large Buyer, Inc." I think he just got in the habit of using real companies as placeholders, not realizing autists on the internet would uncover them and read so much into it.
>>
So institutional-level money are starting to be admitted into exchanges. More secure, regulation-friendly exchanges (such as the one you alluded to) are coming online soon to help facilitate this. It would follow that they would begin to buy in at as low a price point as possible. Is it reasonable to expect another (final) dip in BTC/ETH as per the meme chart/return to mean?
>>
>>7745096
that's extremely plausible. Too bad, the only other real reason to think they had anything to do with axa was "insiders," though fizzy is on ethereum so chainlink could be an option
>>
>>7745145

It would not be unreasonable, if I were to use an analogy then imagine a hostage hand off, the exchanges are handing off BTC for a suitcase full of money, and the institutions are about to make her their slave. During this very high tensity situation it could very well happen that bullets start flying and she gets injured, but they definitely won't let her die.

>10% to 'angel investors'

Pure cancer. Not to mention a very sketchy roadmap:

Q2-Q4:
Beta version of the exchange online (Q2)
BACE tokens are tradeable (Q2)
The Final version of the exchange is online
International banking partnerships
First ICO's listed on BACE

So the formatting isn't very professional, grouping Q2-Q4 in a roadmap makes it seem vague, that's a huge window. What international bank partnerships? Sounds like an easy promise to back out of, and First ICO's listed, don't estimate WHEN an ICO will be listed if you don't have one in mind. Simply state when the platform launches.

Bace is a joke, do better research, even the little things I pointed out can spell trouble for an ICO.

I'm guessing he figured it was too late, since the AXA contracts had already been discovered and publicized. Although I don't know why he wouldn't clear up any confusion publicly. He probably wanted to prevent more rumors around a Maersk partnership from starting.
To be clear, I'm not FUDing. Link is my second largest hold. But from my research most of the partnership rumors are overblown, with the most promising possible exception being DocuSign. There's more than meets the eye there, but I'm still in the midst of my investigation so I don't have anything solid to reveal yet.

The interledger is project is more ambitious. LN is a system that increases btc transaction speeds. Interledger is intended to connect nodes of all payment types i.e. bank to crypto, crypto to crypto, bank to bank, using the underlying ledger. Pretty much creating a massive transaction extranet. Nodes would act like traditional hosting servers and would allow those that host the node to get paid out in their currency of choice. I honestly believe that's what we'll use in the future if they can actually pull it off, it's just that one dev worked for ripple, the other created a system that had serious security flaws
