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.

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.

Accessing the Money of the Future with Technology of the Past

While most of us in the cryptosphere have a pretty good handle on the mechanics of cryptocurrency, the rest of the world is still scratching their heads over it. The widespread ignorance of cryptocurrency poses a huge impediment to its global adoption, especially in parts of the world where reliable access to the Internet and the availability of smartphones is not consistent. However, CoinText, a new crypto wallet service whose user interface runs on the SMS network may be the key to bridging that gap.

The functionality of Cointext is similar to many other automated SMS-based platforms one might use such as online banking and promotional campaigns. Anyone can generate a seed for a Cointext wallet by texting a valid command to one of the service’s access numbers. The user can then enter additional commands to check their balance, send and receive digital assets, and so on. Currently, the platform only supports Bitcoin Cash and all transactions are immediately settled on the BCH blockchain via Cointext’s proprietary algorithm to translate the SMS commands to post to the blockchain.. .

The US-based fintech company launched the beta version of its platform last month and currently only offers access numbers for six countries (the US,.Canada, Australia, South Africa, the UK, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands). Users outside of these six countries are still able to use the service by texting one of those countries’ access numbers.

Cointext’s unique wallet differs from traditional mobile crypto wallets mainly because Its SMS-based platform makes the service accessible to users of older, more basic mobile phones regardless of whether the devices are connected to the Internet. Users can view their BCH address by texting RECEIVE to an access number and can send funds either in the amount of BCH or in the amount of five different fiat currencies.

Users’ BCH addresses are linked to their phone numbers which allows for users to send BCH to other Cointext users using only the recipient’s cell phone number without ever having to see the recipient’s public key. Users can also delete their text chat history as a means of hiding evidence of a crypto wallet from law enforcement who may search their phone. Doing this does not affect their wallet at all.

As is the case with any developing technology, the platform is not without some security flaws. Users’ BCH addresses and by extension, their private keys, are linked to their phone numbers. This poses a serious problem as Cointext currently offers no resolution for the loss of funds if a user changes their phone number or loses their phone.

This revolutionary crypto service is particularly beneficial to billions of people in developing countries where neither smartphones, traditional bank accounts or consistent Internet access are common

Cointext plans to launch a wave of access numbers for additional countries next month and is looking for feedback from the 2,000 people experimenting with the beta version. The development team also plans to implement support for non-English speakers in the next version of the platform. From there, Cointext may become the first of many such services to introduce various digital currencies to the rest of the world.
