Decentralized Social Networks: Can They Work?
What does "decentralized social media" even mean? LAST YEAR JILLIAN York, a free expression activist, was temporarily booted off Facebook for sharing partially nude images. The offending photos were part of a German breast cancer awareness campaign which featured, well, breasts. Facebook flagged the post as a violation of its Community Standards, which strictly prohibits most types of female nudity. Though the account suspension lasted only 24 hours, it had a powerful impact on York’s ability to get things done. Locked out of Facebook, York was unable to complete her work or post comments on news sites that use Facebook’s commenting tools. And without Facebook credentials, York could not access apps like Spotify and Tinder. Tick off Facebook and you may be unable to work, date, or listen to music. York’s suspension highlights the ever-expanding ways in which we now rely on large private platforms to facilitate our online activities. Over the last 13 years, Facebook has evolved from a lifestyle site for college kids into a cornerstone of civic life. It is one of a handful of very large platforms that dominate our online world. As such platforms have gained traction, the web has transformed from an open space for free expression into a corporate-owned gated community of private platforms. The power of giant platforms like Facebook, Google, and Twitter leads to problems ranging from the threat of government-ordered censorship to more subtle, algorithmic biases in the curation of content users consume. Moreover, as these platforms expand their reach, the ripple effects of exclusion can have serious consequences for people’s personal and professional lives, and users have no clear path to recourse. The platforms that host and inform our networked public sphere are unelected, unaccountable, and often impossible to audit or oversee. In response, there is a growing movement among free speech advocates to create new technology to address these concerns. Early web pioneers like Brewster Kahle have called for ways we might “lock the web open” with code, enabling peer-to-peer interactions in place of mediated private platforms. The idea is to return to the good old days of the early '90’s web, when users published content directly in a user-friendly decentralized fashion, without the need for corporate intermediaries and their aspirational approach. Communities for users, run only by other users. No companies and giant corporation behind it. Just social networking for the sake of social networking. Now, WIRED makes the argument that they'll never work but I'm not so convinced. I love the idea. What do you think? Can we drop Facebook and find a decentralized way to connect again?

Keuntungan & Kerugian Investasi Cryptocurrency
Cryptocurrency adalah coin yang saat ini sedang melambung namanya, jual-beli cryptocurrency mulai banyak bermunculan di dunia maya, seperti bitcoin, ethereum, rippel dan lainnya. Harga yang fluktuatif membuat tingginya minat orang untuk melakukan jual-beli cryptocurrency, berbeda dengan saham yang hanya mendapatkan hitungan persentase saja. Cryptocurrency menganut system peer to peer sehingga siapa saja bisa melakukan jual-beli dengan syarat bisa melakukan kelengkapan KYC. Berbagai situs bisa anda gunakan mulai dari Luno | Indodax | Gopax | Tokocrypto | dll, semua exchange tersebut sama saja mengikuti harga asli cryptocurrency di seluruh indonesia. Anda bisa memilih berbagai macam cryptocurrency tersebut sesuai keinginan, karena tidak ada batasan untuk membelinya asalkan anda mengerti keggunaan coin tersebut untuk apa. Oleh karena itu, banyak orang yang belum paham keuntungan dan kerugian ketika melakukan jual-beli cryptocurrency, agar anda bisa paham perhatikan ulasan berikut! Keuntungan Investasi Cryptocurrency 1. Potensi Kenaikan Harga di Masa Mendatang Sudah sering Anda dengar bukan, bitcoin dan mata uang digital lainnya sudah membuat puluhan orang kaya raya mendadak. Trend yang meningkat dengan luar biasa adalah bukti otentik di masa lampau. Bagaimana di masa depan? Bahkan penyihir pun tidak akan bisa meramal dengan tepat, tapi belajar dari pola yang ada, maka potensi kenaikan nilai bitcoin di masa mendatang bukan kemustahilan. 2. Kebebasan dan Kecepatan Bitcoin, ether, dan mayoritas mata uang kripto lain menggunakan teknologi blockchain tanpa melibatkan pihak ketiga yakni perbankan. Dengan demikian, tidak ada aturan-aturan yang berpotensi menghambat proses payment. Misalnya ketika melakukan transfer ke luar negeri, maka prosesnya tidak perlu menunggu hari kerja, tapi cukup dengan hitungan jam bahkan menit. Kenapa bisa semudah dan secepat itu? Karena pada prinsipnya, tujuan awal penciptaan mata uang kripto adalah untuk menghilangkan hambatan-hambatan di dunia keuangan. Meskipun saat ini, berbagai startup mulai melirik menerbitkan mata uang kripto sebagai sarana crowd funding melalui ICO. 3. Keamanan Identitas Di dunia ini, ada saja orang yang memiliki kebutuhan aneh, macam menyembunyikan identitas ketika bertransaksi. Eits, jangan negative thinking dulu dah ah! Bisa jadi karena ogah info personalnya diketahui Bank atau oleh merchant. Info semacam itu berharga dan rawan disalahgunakan lhoh. Maka dari itu, beberapa orang memilih menggunakan BTC dan ETH untuk menjamin informasi yang ada. Tapi jangan digunakan di Indonesia, dilarang ntuh buat jual beli. 4. Menghindari pemalsuan uang Salah satu problem dari penggunaan duit kertas maupun kartu kredit adalah rawan pencurian dan pemalsuan. Secara teknis di dunia digital, ada istilah “double spend”, yang bermakna dengan menggunakan uang yang sama, seseorang melakukan transaksi untuk dua hal yang beda. Skema blockchain di mata uang kripto tidak memungkinkan hal ini terjadi, bisa dibilang aman! 5. Berpartisipasi dalam ICO Sudah tau apa artinya ICO? Pernah loh saya tulis tentang Initial Coin Offering. Dimana perusahaan yang punya proyek, nerbitin mata uang digital untuk membiayainya. Nah hebatnya, banyak ICO membuat orang menjadi kaya karena proyeknya berjalan dengan lancar sehingga nilai koinnya meningkat luar biasa drastis. Kita pake contoh lagi deh. Misal proyek X menerbitkan Xcoin dengan harga ICO USD 0,01 per token(coin). Kemudian dalam setahun harganya meningkat menjadi USD 1 per koin. Naik 100 kali lipat dong! Terus apa hubungannya dengan mata uang digital lainnya? Saat ini, sebagian ICO minta BTC atau ETH untuk Anda yang mau berpartisipasi dalam proyek mereka, bukan melalui transfer duit konvensional. Itulah kenapa, paling tidak harus memiliki mata uang kripto kalo mau berpartisipasi dalam ICO. Kerugian Investasi Cryptocurrency 1. Volatilitas Sangat Tinggi Heiy, di intro kan sudah saya jelaskan masalah volatilitas ini! Jadi sabar saja ya, mudah-mudahan lekas ketemu nilai wajarnya. Jadi investor dan company yang mau ICO bisa tenang gembira. Nah, tapi Anda juga tidak boleh abai terhadap beberapa poin lain yang berpotensi mengganggu investasi kita. 2. Potensi pelanggaran Hukum Masalah utama dan paling pelik yang dihadapi oleh mata uang digital adalah regulasi. Seandainya semua negara di dunia melarang bitcoin, bisa dipastikan nilainya akan runtuh dan tak berharga. Kenyataannya tidak bukan? Ini karena beberapa negara sudah mengatur dan mengijinkan penggunaan mata uang kripto. Bahkan Swedia dikabarkan sebagai negara pertama yang ikut menerbitkan mata uang kripto-nya sendiri. Saya sendiri melihat beberapa perusahaan keuangan global enggan menerima bitcoin dan semacamnya karena takut mengganggu bisnis yang selama ini telah dibangun. Eksekutif dari JP Morgan sampai melarang karyawannya beli bitcoin lhoh, dan itu menggelikan menurut saya. Jika permasalahan dengan regulator sudah usai, nampaknya peningkatan valuasi mata uang kripto tidak akan bisa dihindari. 3. Kehilangan “kunci” wallet Pastikan Anda mencatat di komputer atau kalau perlu di print dan disimpan di beberapa tempat. Karena apabila Anda lupa dan kehilangan kunci wallet Anda, maka akan sangat susah dan hampir mustahil bisa mengakses dompet Anda. Salah satu solusi yang menurut saya bisa dijadikan pertimbangan adalah menggunakan apps di handphone, tentu harus lebih user friendly dan mudah digunakan. Kali ini saya bekerja sama dengan Luno dan sudah mencoba keunggulannya sebagai wallet Bitcoin dan Ether. Nah jadi sembari nunggu perkembangan dunia per-kripto-an, Anda bisa mulai mendaftar ke Luno. Apakah harus Luno? Silakan Anda coba aplikasi yang lain dan pilih sesuai keinginan masing-masing. Tapi menurut saya, wallet Luno adalah salah satu yang paling aman! Tapi sebelum memutuskan mencari aplikasi lainnya, pastikan bahwa penggunaannya harus mudah dan secure. Apa gunanya Anda mendownload wallet jika ternyata tidak meminimalisir kemungkinan kehilangan token cryptocurrency.
All About Blockchain – The Importance of Blockchain
The first thing that anyone’s mind asks first after hearing the expression ‘Blockchain’ is “What is it??” So, before coming to that part, we need to know about what ‘Cryptocurrency’ is. Cryptocurrency is an internet-based digital medium of exchange using strong cryptography for conducting digital exchanges. Nowadays, it has become a rapidly growing technology using by both industries and academic areas. One of the most well-known cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. In 2016, the Bitcoin market has reached up to 10 billion dollars. Since it has been released, over 4000 of other alternative variants have been created. Now, let’s talk about Blockchain. It is a decentralized distributed database that is used to save the records of the growing lists called ‘Blocks’. These so-called ‘Blocks’ are contained with timestamp and the previous blocks cryptographic hash each. By design and purpose, Blockchains are inherently resistant to data modification. It allows us to send and receive money prohibiting any kind of third party applications. It actually serves as an open distributed ledger that can record the transactions between the performing parties efficiently. The first describers of a Blockchain work were Stuart Haber and W. Scott Stornetta in 1991. Later, in 1992, they implemented the Merkle Trees to improve its efficiency which allows several document certificates in one block. The structure of a blockchain is described as a linked record of transaction blocks. Each block mentions a former block, also identified as the parent block, in the “previous block hash” field, in the block header. Here are the terms used to define the structure of a Blockchain, Firstly, the Index, which indicates the location of a block inside the chain. It starts with ‘0’ and goes on. Secondly, the Hash, which facilitates the classification of data in the set. Thirdly, the Previous Hash. As it is previously told that every block in a chain is associated with the previous one, this character is defined to add to its immutability as a variety in the block order. The ‘numTx’, which tallies the number of transactions performed in a block. The Timestamp, which saves the time aspects of the building time of the block. Nonce, which saves the integer used in mining. It may be 32 bit or 64 bit. The Transaction, which saves the specific version of transactions as arrays performed so far in the block. Finally, the Merkle Tree, which has been designed to improve the efficiency of the chain. Here is the structure diagram:- As it is a rapidly growing technology nowdays, it is ovious to have its various kinds of applications and usages. Here are some them below:- Cryptocurrency – Most of the cryptocurrencies uses this technology to save records. Like Bitcoin and Etherium both uses Blockchain. Loans – According to Microsoft, the blockchain technology can also be used for all kind of loans. Smart Contracts – Blockchain-based smart contracts can be partially or fully executed proposed contracts, which may be enforced also. Obligations – As an obligation can be viewed as a special type of loan, it would go very well with the Blockchain also. Voting System – The smart contracts of Blockchain can be also used for the voting system. Financial Services – According to a study by IBM, this technology is rapidly growing on banking services. Video Games – In November 2017, a game named CRYPTOKITTES, was developed by Blockchain. Energy Reserve Supply Market – Creating a supply and demand market for energy where smaller parties can join just as easily as big ones. Hopefully to ease the strain on the already existing network on peak moments for the demand of energy. As per the rule of science, Blockchain technology also has its advantages and drawbacks. The advantages are:- 1. Since Blockchain is an open-source ledger, each and every transaction will be made public and hence there will be no chance of fraud taking place. 2. The government or any financial institution has absolutely zero control over virtual currencies that are based on Blockchain technology. 3. The virtual currencies/digital currencies that are based on Blockchain offer transaction times that are more instant than the usual bank ones. 4. The Blockchain technology lets individuals and companies make transactions directly to the end-user without involving any 3rd-parties. Following these advantages, the drawbacks are:- 1. The virtual currencies that are based on Blockchain technology are extremely volatile. 2. Because of the anonymity that exists in decentralized blockchain and virtual currencies which rely on them, they have become a second home for online criminals. 3. Storing virtual currencies that are Blockchain-based are a big headache for people who are not so tech savvy. The application of Blockchain technology is not limited only to the finance industry. It has a fantastic future in different sectors such as supply chain management, digital advertising, forecasting, cybersecurity, Internet of things, networking, etc. Blockchain technology also has a huge prospective to provide new openings for occupation in the industry. So knowledge of Blockchain among professionals is required these days and many institutions have started providing Blockchain certification training as well. It also enhances the professional’s capability to upgrade themselves. With the help of Blockchain technology, it is possible to transform the whole world into a much smaller place. The transactional activities can be performed much faster and efficiently using Blockchain. Blockchain technology is going to be used in many more sectors in the future such as in government systems as these systems are slow, dense, and likely to corruption. Implementing Blockchain technology in government systems can make their operations much more secure and efficient.
Cryptocurrencies Are Making It Impossible To Afford A Great Gaming PC
"This wasn’t entertainment, this was an investment." Let’s rewind the clock a little bit to the Autumn romance of 2013: Bitcoin is showing itself to be more than a passing fad and things are starting to feel real.2013 was the year that you could buy things with cryptocurrency with retailers like Newegg stepping in and giving the strange idea a special kind of legitimacy. 2013 was also the year that AMD made a desperate bid for market share at the high end of the gaming GPU market with the R9–290X The result was a rush on AMD GPUs as people desperate to get on the cryptocurrency bandwagon scrambled to find their piece of the pie, California gold rush style. The price of AMD GPUs soared as retailers marked the cards up significantly over MSRP, selling a product once targeted at PC Gaming enthusiasts to a new class of customer who was willing to reach into deeper pockets because this wasn’t entertainment, this was an investment. Eventually that bubble popped, but we're back in 2017/2018 and this bubble doesnt look like its popping soon. You have to remember that part of the appeal of cryptocurrency mining is that it was an ‘everyman’s’ chance to make some money. A little consumer hardware, your home computer crunching away while you were at work or sleeping… People want that dream of striking it, well, maybe rich, but if not rich, making money for doing effectively nothing other than watch the mining rig do its thing and not letting it catch fire. On that dream, the market has delivered and the GPU is once again king of a new generation of cryptocurrencies. Read the full piece here.

A Cryptocurrency Crash Course for Beginners
While I'm still pretty baffled by the world of cryptocurrency, this piece by the New York Times really laid it out in layman's terms. Hope it helps you out too! Basic Run Down: 1. Digital money that is bought and sold online 2. Doesn't go through traditional institutions like banks 3. Is not linked to any concrete substance like gold Example: Alice wants to buy a bike from Dan using Bitcoin. Alice logs into her Bitcoin wallet with a private Key (pin, series of numbers unique to her) Now usually, the money she's sending would first go to a bank who would record the money being moved and transfered, but with Bitcoin, there is no bank or middle man. Instead, her transaction is added to a public list of transactions called a Block. Every ten minutes a "Block" of transactions is added to the list of all other previous transactions, creating a Chain. A Blockchain. Now, in order to verify that the transaction was legitimate, without having a bank check it, the Block is sent into the Bitcoin network, where various network members are racing to finish a very hard math problem (more on that later) The one who finishes the math problem first gets to have their record of the transaction be known as the official record, the verified record. For their efforts, they are given Bitcoin for each transaction they verify. This action of verifying bitcoin is called Mining. Because so many people are mining, this is meant to ensure that no one computer will monopolize the market, like banks have done in the past. As for the math problem, the more computers that join the race to solve it, the harder the math problem is. This is why people are fighting for the fastest computers and huge servers to help them become first. Apparently, Bitcoin is set to be available for mining until there are 21,000,000 Bitcoin in circulation. Right now, that's set to happen in 2140...
Man Dies on Mount Everest Over Crypto Currency?
ASKfm, the site that lets friends ask anonymous questions, decided to launch their own cryptocurrency. To celebrate the launch, they planned an elaborate promotional stunt involving four climbers and the highest mountain in the world. Theysent a team of three crypto enthusiasts on an expedition to climb Mount Everest. At the top, they would bury a small USB drive containing $50,000 worth of ASKT, their new cryptocurrency they have planned an Initial Coin Offering for. Why? They wanted to send their currency “to the moon.” The climbers reached the summit on May 14 and successfully buried the USB. In a Medium post, the company described the expedition and the intentions behind it. “While others try sophisticated marketing techniques, these guys went out there and put themselves right on top of the highest mountain on the planet. An elegant way to boast ideological superiority to every other crypto. A way quite strangely unexplored before. Even memes-wise, think about the closest starting point to reach the moon. It seems so obvious, yet no one has done it.” What the company failed to mention, however, was Lam Baby Sherpa: the Nepalese mountain guide who helped carry gear and lead these otherwise-inexperienced climbers to 29,000 feet. The sherpa, a veteran of three previous Everest climbs, was left behind by the group and is presumed to be dead. One of the climbers was reported as stating: “At the top of Everest the weather was very bad, and then we were coming down. We were going down to Camp 4, which is at about 7900m, and one Sherpa was dying. That’s all we know. He was behind us, so we don’t know what happened to him. We were going fast and the Sherpa wasn’t coming with us. He was coming behind so we didn’t see him.” Upon reaching Camp 4, one of the crypto climbers had developed altitude sickness. They descended to Camp 2, where they called for a helicopter evacuation. As for the $50,000 worth of cryptocurrency? There’s no word as to whether or not it’s been retrieved yet, but with climbing season in full swing and an average of 600 summits each season, it’s sure to turn up soon.
