Gold derives it's value from the cost of work to get it out of the ground and refined. But why mine it at all? Because gold is used for certain things which will not be returned to the above-ground gold pool. These certain things MADE with gold have a value FAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR higher than the price of the gold used to make them. Here is a picture of one of them. What is the value of gold in this watch which sold for $24 million in 2014? Melt this baby down, and its still valuable as gol

CREATIVES 4 microTRANSACTIONS! Kids sometimes compete to CREATE the coolest most popular "skins" or "accessories" for their eSports avatars. Now imagine kids getting PAID to sell their popular "mods"? Maybe your lazy computer-buried kid is the next virtual Monet or Ralph Lauren? A future mogul thru design.

Multi-tasking while watching conference... editing the next @diamondsintherough episode which will come out tonite (or tomorrow afternoon) to prepare you for the weekend analysis of all the new companies on BSV from the conference. It's the first of our "Investment ICON" series-- this one is titled "Sharing is Caring" and teaches the ground-floor methods for obtaining fully diluted sharecount for the public companies you love to follow. We do Snapchat and Unity (IPO'd last Friday), and we didn

TAAL presentation is rich in slide-cake... Check this one out for prediction of transaction-processing revenues vs block-subsidy revenues for Nodes! Does TAAL know something we don't?!! Or is this entire conference a proof-of-work for what's about to happen to transactions and block size??

Token Panel quite useful. According to @ryanxcharles 's handy defining of "layers" of tokenization methodology... Layer 0 token: Tokens using satoshis (BSV tokens) themselves as tokens. Layer 1 token: Tokens which use BitCoin scripting language inside BSV tokens to implement the tokenization. Layer 2 token: Tokens OFF-chain. EDITORIAL COMMENT: My opinion? Tokens will be safest when attached to actual BSV tokens-- aka tokens should have a definitive "PAR" value associated with BSV tokens th

As for powpress, really want to use it particularly for the rich editing not found on other platforms atm. But I feel it needs a monetization strategy for authors. Medium has changed theirs a couple times, but still relies on "reads" and how they interpret reads (formerly claps but that got out of hand obviously bc the claps have no cost-- something BitCoin solves inherently). Hate to say it, but paywalls have been working for a long time. New York Times, even bit.sv and yours.org worked in

"When Sir Albert Howard encountered the hoof and mouth outbreak in India, he put carriers in corrals with healthy cattle to demonstrate that feeding grass fertilized with compost prevented the highly communicable disease while the cattle fed grass fertilized with chemicals got sick. He was right. The neighbors were aghast that he kept some of the infected cattle alive to expose the healthy ones."-- One American farmer's musings on disease & immunal responses

I will drop Medium like a sack of rotten tomatoes if @Powpress or anyone else allows a paywall feature similar to what bit.sv and yours.org created. I also have some suggestions for simple improvements, for what authors might want, which can make a BitCoiny Medium competitor immediately better than the current competition if anyone is interested just DM me.

Department of Financial Services has a lot of power here in the US when it comes to finance, and they are already choosing-up sides. Obviously they don't support BSV, but support Binance and btc and ethereum CLASSIC! You can't make this stuff up. They are basically a mafiaoso organization, protecting the State of New York's tax revenues from big financial firms. That's why 2B2Fs don't want to leave Manhattan, they get protection, bailouts, etc.... so long as they play nice with NY State. Ob

*The Satoshi Nakamoto gloves are officially OFF* Craig is no longer obfuscating himself, as his thoughts on things like scripting language are now officially in the public domain as of today. Is this coincidence with recent expiration of certain "trust" restrictions? If anyone would like to challenge CSW's technical knowledge-- I wish that person luck.
