OpenAlias: Mastering the Fine Art of Simple Privacy

When one thinks of Monero, the first thing they may think of is privacy. XMR has the reputation of being “the privacy coin”. But one thing Monero is not known for is simplicity. Even when engaging in something as basic as sending or receiving Monero, the addresses can be as long as 95 characters. The OpenAlias Project was created to simplify the transaction process for even the least crypto savvy user while adding yet another layer of privacy for both sender as well as recipient.

The public viewability of all transactions on a most blockchains is definitely one of the technology’s most well-known features. However, this feature can negate the anonymous nature of crypto if one’s address is tied to the identity of the owner, as is the case for many websites soliciting donations or sales via crypto.

A specific crypto address can be found to be associated with a specific person or organization. A good example of this is an address from an account on a crypto exchange that follows KYC regulations. Once an address is discovered to belong to a specific person or group, it can become possible to look up that address on that particular cryptocurrency’s blockchain explorer and determine how much coin has been transferred to or from that address.The identity of the initiator of a crypto transaction may also be determined by tracking the IP address on the merchants website.

The uniqueness of OpenAlias is that it is a TXT-DNS record on a fully-qualified domain name, thus taking full advantage of an existing infrastructure as opposed to building a new one from scratch. The alias for the impossible-to-remember crypto address is a domain name, and under the Domain Name system, there can only be one domain name of its kind.

In other words, there is only one http://example.com as opposed to http://example.org or http://example.net, making the scenario in which one alias points to two different crypto addressees impossible. Other aliasing standards like having a password like “Dan123” or “givememoney” be (accidentally or intentionally) duplicated and point to more than one crypto wallet.

The average person who may be unfamiliar with cryptocurrency will have an easier time remembering the domain name of their favorite web site rather than a 95-character alphanumeric string.

While OpenAlias is the brainchild of the Monero Core Team, it can be configured to allow for the acceptance of any cryptocurrency. Although to date, the only known implementation has been for Monero and Bitcoin wallets. As time passses and the popularity of OpenAlias increases, implementations should emerge for other popular cryptocurrencies. Innovations like OpenAlias may one day make cryptocurrency as common among billions of people as email.

Friday the 13th at LBRY Headquarters – Pedro’s Picture Tour

One of the great things about being in the Blockchain industry and living in NH is being able to connect with people who are the entrepreneurs and developers in this space. LBRY (Lbry.io) based in Manchester NH is a great example of a Blockchain project with usable code. I had the opportunity to meet and get to know the LBRY employees at their “Jason Voorhees Memorial Friday the 13th Party with LBRY”.

LBRY allows users to own and control their content vs handing it over to large corporate entities and their advertising partners.  Their code base is open source and available on Github. There are currently 6 full time employees in their Manchester NH office and well as 15 remote employees from as far away as Brazil and India. In total, LBRY has raised over 5 Million dollars.  From their website:

We think users should own their content (and their privacy) instead of handing it over to a corporate giant and their advertising buddies.

For most users, LBRY will be a place where they can find great videos, music, ebooks, and more. A vast digital library that is available on all of your devices. But LBRY is many components working together.

LBRY is first and foremost a new protocol that allows anyone to build apps that interact with digital content on the LBRY network. Apps built on the protocol allow creators to upload their work to the LBRY network of hosts (like BitTorrent), and set a price per stream or download (like iTunes) or give it away for free (like YouTube without ads).”

the beveragesGreat refreshments was the first thing I saw upon entering!

Getting back to the fun. The LBRY office had all their worldwide 21 Full Time employees working at the Manchester office for an entire week culminating in a party Friday night. Upon entering I was greeted with a large table of premium refreshments and tasty snacks from around the world. I have personally known LBRY CEO Jeremy Kauffman and some other LBRY employees from our participation in the Free State Project (fsp.org) and it was great to meet other members of the team. The air was thick with excitement and passion around what LBRY is doing.

the food The local Blockchain community came out to join in the fun.

party goers minglingInteresting discussions all night.

As more of the local Blockchain community arrived the party only got better.  Great conversations were had and ping pong games went late into the morning hours. It’s times like these that really make me appreciate living in NH as a Blockchain enthusiast and I look forward to seeing LBRY continue to grow.

Ep249 Telegram ICO, Verge Hack, Centra Update, and Chicken on Blockchain

Centra Update: I found an address linked to the Centra crowd sale holding 100,000 ETH. Cryptocurrency exchanges charge as much as $3 Million to list tokens and coins. Verge XVG has suffered a 51% attack due to a mining bug. French mega-grocery Carrefour SA is using blockchain technology to show consumers where their chicken dinner came from. Telegram messaging app has already raised more than $1.7 Billion in an ICO but not handing over encryption keys has brought out the Russian Banhammer! News Flash: apparently there is still some sort of debate regarding bitcoin scaling going on — someone needs to tell them the war is over. Darren throws his support behind a DASH proposal for AnyPay. JJ and Pedro visited the 300th consecutive cryptocurrency meet-up in Manchester, NH.
