A couple of years ago in the early months of the 2017, I published a piece called Abundance Via Cryptocurrencies (https://www.reddit.com/C\_S\_T/comments/69d12a/abundance\_via\_cryptocurrencies/
) in which I kind of foresaw the crypto boom that had bitcoin go from $1k to $21k and the alt-coin economy swell up to have more than 60% of the bitcoin market capitalisation. At the time, I spoke of coming out from “the Pit” of conspiracy research and that I was a bit suss on bitcoin’s inception story. At the time I really didn’t see the scaling solution being put forward as being satisfactory and the progress on bitcoin seemed stifled by the politics of the social consensus on an open source protocol so I was looking into alt coins that I thought could perhaps improve upon the shortcomings of bitcoin. In the thread I made someone recommended to have a look at 4chan’s business and finance board. I did end up taking a look at it just as the bull market started to really surge. I found myself in a sea of anonymous posters who threw out all kinds of info and memes about the hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of different shitcoins and why they’re all going to have lambos on the moon. I got right in to it, I loved the idea of filtering through all the shitposts and finding the nuggest of truth amongst it all and was deeply immersed in it all as the price of bitcoin surged 20x and alt coins surged 5-10 times against bitcoin themselves. This meant there were many people who chucked in a few grand and bought a stash of alt coins that they thought were gonna be the next big thing and some people ended up with “portfolios” 100-1000x times their initial investment.
To explain what it’s like to be on an anonymous business and finance board populated with incel neets, nazis, capitalist shit posters, autistic geniuses and whoever the hell else was using the board for shilling their coins during a 100x run up is impossible. It’s hilarious, dark, absurd, exciting and ultimately addictive as fuck. You have this app called blockfolio that you check every couple of minutes to see the little green percentages and the neat graphs of your value in dollars or bitcoin over day, week, month or year. Despite my years in the pit researching conspiracy, and my being suss on bitcoin in general I wasn’t anywhere near as distrustful as I should have been of an anonymous business and finance board and although I do genuinely think there are good people out there who are sharing information with one another in good faith and feel very grateful to the anons that have taken their time to write up quality content to educate people they don’t know, I wasn’t really prepared for the level of organisation and sophistication of the efforts groups would go to to deceive in this space.
Over the course of my time in there I watched my portfolio grow to ridiculous numbers relative to what I put in but I could never really bring myself to sell at the top of a pump as I always felt I had done my research on a coin and wanted to hold it for a long time so why would I sell? After some time though I would read about something new or I would find out of dodgy relationships of a coin I had and would want to exit my position and then I would rebalance my portfolio in to a coin I thought was either technologically superior or didn’t have the nefarious connections to people I had come across doing conspiracy research. Because I had been right in to the conspiracy and the decentralisation tropes I guess I always carried a bit of an antiauthoritarian/anarchist bias and despite participating in a ridiculously capitalistic market, was kind of against capitalism and looking to a blockchain protocol to support something along the lines of an open source anarchosyndicalist cryptocommune. I told myself I was investing in the tech and believed in the collective endeavour of the open source project and ultimately had faith some mysterious “they” would develop a protocol that would emancipate us from this debt slavery complex.
As I became more and more aware of how to spot artificial discussion on the chans, I began to seek out further some of the radical projects like vtorrent and skycoin and I guess became a bit carried away from being amidst such ridiculous overt shilling as on the boards so that if you look in my post history you can even see me promoting some of these coins to communities I thought might be sympathetic to their use case. I didn’t see it at the time because I always thought I was holding the coins with the best tech and wanted to ride them up as an investor who believed in them, but this kind of promotion is ultimately just part of a mentality that’s pervasive to the cryptocurrency “community” that insists because it is a decentralised project you have to in a way volunteer to inform people about the coin since the more decentralised ones without premines or DAO structures don’t have marketing budgets, or don’t have marketing teams. In the guise of cultivating a community, groups form together on social media platforms like slack, discord, telegram, twitter and ‘vote’ for different proposals, donate funds to various boards/foundations that are set up to give a “roadmap” for the coins path to greatness and organise marketing efforts on places like reddit, the chans, twitter. That’s for the more grass roots ones at least, there are many that were started as a fork of another coin, or a ICO, airdrop or all these different ways of disseminating a new cryptocurrency or raising funding for promising to develop one. Imagine the operations that can be run by a team that raised millions, hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars on their ICOs, especially if they are working in conjunction with a new niche of cryptocurrency media that’s all nepotistic and incestuous.
About a year and a half ago I published another piece called “Bitcoin is about to be dethroned” (https://www.reddit.com/C\_S\_T/comments/7ewmuu/bitcoin\_is\_about\_to\_be\_dethroned/
) where I felt I had come to realise the scaling debate had been corrupted by a company called Blockstream and they had been paying for social media operations in a fashion not to dissimilar to correct the record or such to control the narrative around the scaling debate and then through deceit and manipulation curated an apparent consensus around their narrative and hijacked the bitcoin name and ticker (BTC). I read the post again just before posting this and decided to refer to it to to add some kind of continuity to my story and hopefully save me writing so much out. Looking back on something you wrote is always a bit cringey especially because I can see that although I had made it a premise post, I was acting pretty confident that I was right and my tongue was acidic because of so much combating of shills on /biz/ but despite the fact I was wrong about the timing I stand by much of what I wrote then and want to expand upon it a bit more now.
The fork of the bitcoin protocol in to bitcoin core (BTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH) is the biggest value fork of the many that have occurred. There were a few others that forked off from the core chain that haven’t had any kind of attention put on them, positive or negative and I guess just keep chugging away as their own implementation. The bitcoin cash chain was supposed to be the camp that backed on chain scaling in the debate, but it turned out not everyone was entirely on board with that and some players/hashpower felt it was better to do a layer two type solution themselves although with bigger blocks servicing the second layer. Throughout what was now emerging as a debate within the BCH camp, Craig Wright and Calvin Ayre of Coin Geek said they were going to support massive on chain scaling, do a node implementation that would aim to restore bitcoin back to the 0.1.0 release which had all kinds of functionality included in it that had later been stripped by Core developers over the years and plan to bankrupt the people from Core who changed their mind on agreeing with on-chain scaling. This lead to a fork off the BCH chain in to bitcoin satoshis vision (BSV) and bitcoin cash ABC.
The premise for this post is that Craig S Wright was Satoshi Nakamoto. It’s an interesting premise because depending upon your frame of reference the premise may either be a fact or to some too outrageous to even believe as a premise. Yesterday it was announced via CoinGeek that Craig Steven Wright has been granted the copyright claim for both the bitcoin white-paper under the pen name Satoshi Nakamoto and the original 0.1.0 bitcoin software (both of which were marked (c) copyright of satoshi nakamoto. The reactions to the news can kind of be classified in to four different reactions. Those who heard it and rejected it, those who heard it but remained undecided, those who heard it and accepted it, and those who already believed he was. Apparently to many the price was unexpected and such a revelation wasn’t exactly priced in to the market with the price immediately pumping nearly 100% upon the news breaking. However, to some others it was a vindication of something they already believed. This is an interesting phenomena to observe. For many years now I have always occupied a somewhat positively contrarian position to the default narrative put forward to things so it’s not entirely surprising that I find myself in a camp that holds the minority opinion. As you can see in the bitcoin dethroned piece I called Craig fake satoshi, but over the last year and bit I investigated the story around Craig and came to my conclusion that I believed him to be at least a major part of a team of people who worked on the protocol I have to admit that through reading his articles, I have kind of been brought full circle to where my contrarian opinion has me becoming somewhat of an advocate for “the system’. https://coingeek.com/bitcoin-creator-craig-s-wright-satoshi-nakamoto-granted-us-copyright-registrations-for-bitcoin-white-paper-and-code/
When the news dropped, many took to social media to see what everyone was saying about it. On /biz/ a barrage of threads popped up discussing it with many celebrating and many rejecting the significance of such a copyright claim being granted. Immediately in nearly every thread there was a posting of an image of a person from twitter claiming that registering for copyright is an easy process that’s granted automatically unless challenged and so it doesn’t mean anything. This was enough for many to convince them of the insignificance of the revelation because of the comment from a person who claimed to have authority on twitter. Others chimed in to add that in fact there was a review of the copyright registration especially in high profile instances and these reviewers were satisfied with the evidence provided by Craig for the claim. At the moment Craig is being sued by Ira Kleiman for an amount of bitcoin that he believes he is entitled to because of Craig and Ira’s brother Dave working together on bitcoin. He is also engaged in suing a number of people from the cryptocurrency community for libel and defamation after they continued to use their social media/influencer positions to call him a fraud and a liar. He also has a number of patents lodged through his company nChain that are related to blockchain technologies. This has many people up in arms because in their mind Satoshi was part of a cypherpunk movement, wanted anonymity, endorsed what they believed to be an anti state and open source technologies and would use cryptography rather than court to prove his identity and would have no interest in patents. https://bitstagram.bitdb.network/m/raw/1fce34a7004759f8db16b2ae9678e9c6db434ff2e399f59b5a537f72eff2c1a1 https://imgur.com/a/aANAsL3
If you listen to Craig with an open mind, what cannot be denied is the man is bloody smart. Whether he is honest or not is up to you to decide, but personally I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and then cut them off if i find them to be dishonest. What I haven’t really been able to do with my investigation of craig is cut him off. There have been many moments where I disagree with what he has had to say but I don’t think people having an opinion about something that I believe to be incorrect is the same as being a dishonest person. It’s very important to distinguish the two and if you are unable to do so there is a very real risk of you projecting expectations or ideals upon someone based off your ideas of who they are. Many times if someone is telling the truth but you don’t understand it, instead of acknowledging you don’t understand it, you label them as being stupid or dishonest. I think that has happened to an extreme extent with Craig. Let’s take for example the moment when someone in the slack channel asked Craig if he had had his IQ tested and what it was. Craig replied with 179. The vast majority of people on the internet have heard someone quote their IQ before in an argument or the IQ of others and to hear someone say such a score that is actually 6 standard deviations away from the mean score (so probably something like 1/100 000) immediately makes them reject it on the grounds of probability. Craig admits that he’s not the best with people and having worked with/taught many high functioning people (sometimes on the spectrum perhaps) on complex anatomical and physiological systems I have seen some that also share the same difficulties in relating to people and reconciling their genius and understandings with more average intelligences. Before rejecting his claim outright because we don’t understand much of what he says, it would be prudent to first check is there any evidence that may lend support to his claim of a one in a million intelligence quotient.
Craig has mentioned on a number of occasions that he holds a number of different degrees and certifications in relation to law, cryptography, statistics, mathematics, economics, theology, computer science, information technology/security. I guess that does sound like something someone with an extremely high intelligence could achieve. Now I haven’t validated all of them but from a simple check on Charles Sturt’s alumni portal using his birthday of 23rd of October 1970 we can see that he does in fact have 3 Masters and a PhD from Charles Sturt. Other pictures I have seen from his office at nChain have degrees in frames on the wall and a developer published a video titled Craig Wright is a Genius with 17 degrees where he went and validated at least 8 of them I believe. He is recently publishing his Doctorate of Theology through an on-chain social media page that you have to pay a little bit for access to sections of his thesis. It’s titled the gnarled roots of creation. He has also mentioned on a number of occasions his vast industry experience as both a security contractor and business owner. An archive from his LinkedIn can be seen below as well.

In fact here is an on chain collection of articles and videos relating to Craig called the library of craig - https://www.bitpaste.app/tx/94b361b205196560d1bd09e4e3b3ec7ad6bea478af204cabfe243efd8fc944dd
So there is a guy with 17 degrees, a self professed one in a hundred thousand IQ, who’s worked for Australian Federal Police, ASIO, NSA, NASA, ASX. He’s been in Royal Australian Air Force, operated a number of businesses in Australia, published half a dozen academic papers on networks, cryptography, security, taught machine learning and digital forensics at a number of universities and then another few hundred short articles on medium about his work in these various domains, has filed allegedly 700 patents on blockchain related technology that he is going to release on bitcoin sv, copyrighted the name so that he may prevent other competing protocols from using the brand name, that is telling you he is the guy that invented the technology that he has a whole host of other circumstantial evidence to support that, but people won’t believe that because they saw something that a talking head on twitter posted or that a Core Developer said, or a random document that appears online with a C S Wright signature on it that lists access to an address that is actually related to Roger Ver, that’s enough to write him off as a scam. Even then when he publishes a photo of the paper copy which appears to supersede the scanned one, people still don’t readjust their positions on the matter and resort back to “all he has to do is move the coins or sign a tx”.
Yes Craig was on the Cypherpunk mailing list back in the day, but that doesn’t mean that he was or is an anarchist. Or that he shares the same ideas that Code Is Law that many from the crypto community like to espouse. I myself have definitely been someone to parrot the phrase myself before reading lots of Craig’s articles and trying to understand where he is coming from. What I have come to learn from listening and reading the man, is that although I might be fed up with the systems we have in place, they still exist to perform important functions within society and because of that the tools we develop to serve us have to exist within that preexisting legal and social framework in order for them to have any chance at achieving global success in replacing fiat money with the first mathematically provably scarce commodity. He says he designed bitcoin to be an immutable data ledger where everyone is forced to be honest, and economically disincentivised to perform attacks within the network because of the logs kept in a Write Once Read Many (WORM) ledger with hierarchical cryptographic keys. In doing so you eliminate 99% of cyber crime, create transparent DAO type organisations that can be audited and fully compliant with legislature that’s developed by policy that comes from direct democratic voting software. Everyone who wants anonymous coins wants to have them so they can do dishonest things, illegal things, buy drugs, launder money, avoid taxes.
Now this triggers me a fair bit as someone who has bought drugs online, who probably hasn’t paid enough tax, who has done illegal things contemplating what it means to have that kind of an evidence ledger, and contemplate a reality where there are anonymous cryptocurrencies, where massive corporations continue to be able to avoid taxes, or where methamphetamine can be sold by the tonne, or where people can be bought and sold. This is the reality of creating technologies that can enable and empower criminals. I know some criminals and regard them as very good friends, but I know there are some criminals that I do not wish to know at all. I know there are people that do horrific things in the world and I know that something that makes it easier for them is having access to funds or the ability to move money around without being detected. I know arms, drugs and people are some of the biggest markets in the world, I know there is more than $50 trillion dollars siphoned in to off shore tax havens from the value generated as the product of human creativity in the economy and how much human charity is squandered through the NGO apparatus. I could go on and on about the crappy things happening in the world but I can also imagine them getting a lot worse with an anonymous cryptocurrency. Not to say that I don’t think there shouldn’t be an anonymous cryptocurrency. If someone makes one that works, they make one that works. Maybe they get to exist for a little while as a honeypot or if they can operate outside the law successfully longer, but bitcoin itself shouldn’t be one. There should be something a level playing field for honest people to interact with sound money. And if they operate within the law, then they will have more than adequate privacy, just they will leave immutable evidence for every transaction that can be used as evidence to build a case against you committing a crime.
His claim is that all the people that are protesting the loudest about him being Satoshi are all the people that are engaged in dishonest business or that have a vested interest in there not being one singular global ledger but rather a whole myriad of alternative currencies that can be pumped and dumped against one another, have all kinds of financial instruments applied to them like futures and then have these exchanges and custodial services not doing any Know Your Customer (KYC) or Anti Money Laundering (AML) processes. Bitcoin SV was delisted by a number of exchanges recently after Craig launched legal action at some twitter crypto influencetalking heads who had continued to call him a fraud and then didn’t back down when the CEO of one of the biggest crypto exchanges told him to drop the case or he would delist his coin. The trolls of twitter all chimed in in support of those who have now been served with papers for defamation and libel and Craig even put out a bitcoin reward for a DOX on one of the people who had been particularly abusive to him on twitter. A big european exchange then conducted a twitter poll to determine whether or not BSV should be delisted as either (yes, it’s toxic or no) and when a few hundred votes were in favour of delisting it (which can be bought for a couple of bucks/100 votes). Shortly after Craig was delisted, news began to break of a US dollar stable coin called USDT potentially not being fully solvent for it’s apparent 1:1 backing of the token to dollars in the bank. Binance suffered an alleged exchange hack with 7000 BTC “stolen” and the site suspending withdrawals and deposits for a week. Binance holds 800m USDT for their US dollar markets and immediately once the deposits and withdrawals were suspended there was a massive pump for BTC in the USDT markets as people sought to exit their potentially not 1:1 backed token for bitcoin. The CEO of this exchange has the business registered out of Malta, no physical premises, the CEO stays hotel room to hotel room around the world, has all kind of trading competitions and the binance launchpad, uses an unregistered security to collect fees ($450m during the bear market) from the trading of the hundreds of coins that it lists on its exchange and has no regard for AML and KYC laws. Craig said he himself was able to create 100 gmail accounts in a day and create binance accounts with each of those gmail accounts and from the same wallet, deposit and withdraw 1 bitcoin into each of those in one day ($8000 x 100) without facing any restrictions or triggering any alerts or such.
This post could ramble on for ever and ever exposing the complexities of the rabbit hole but I wanted to offer some perspective on what’s been happening in the space. What is being built on the bitcoin SV blockchain is something that I can only partially comprehend but even from my limited understanding of what it is to become, I can see that the entirety of the crypto community is extremely threatened as it renders all the various alt coins and alt coin exchanges obsolete. It makes criminals play by the rules, it removes any power from the developer groups and turns the blockchain and the miners in to economies of scale where the blockchain acts as a serverless database, the miners provide computational resources/storage/RAM and you interact with a virtual machine through a monitor and keyboard plugged in to an ethernet port. It will be like something that takes us from a type 0 to a type 1 civilisation. There are many that like to keep us in the quagmire of corruption and criminality as it lines their pockets. Much much more can be read about the Cartel in crypto in the archive below. Is it possible this cartel has the resources to mount such a successful psychological operation on the cryptocurrency community that they manage to convince everyone that Craig is the bad guy, when he’s the only one calling for regulation, the application of the law, the storage of immutable records onchain to comply with banking secrecy laws, for Global Sound Money?
Please note, where possible, images were uploaded onto the bitcoin sv blockchain through bitstagram paying about 10c a pop. If I wished I could then use an application etch and archive this post to the chain to be immutably stored. If this publishing forum was on chain too it would mean that when I do the archive the images that are in the bitstragram links (but stored in the bitcoin blockchain/database already) could be referenced in the archive by their txid so that they don’t have to be stored again and thus bringing the cost of the archive down to only the html and css.
Which crypto exchanges provide user information to tax authorities (CRS / FATCA)?
Can tax authorities find about my Bitcoin or other cryptos profits or holdings?
This is a very common question we receive at CryptoTax
, which seems to bother many people in the crypto community.
With the rise of the KYC crypto exchanges get more and more personal transaction data. This is not just the data about the transactions on a specific exchange, but something that could be used as an entry point to trace the transactions across the blockchains and get an overall picture of someone’s profits and holdings. For example the German tax authority has officially announced to fight tax evasion schemes by using blockchain.
This makes the crypto exchanges a great target for data mining, especially from the tax authorities.
How safe is user’s personal and financial data at crypto exchanges? Are they obliged to share this data with tax authorities? Will they do that, if they are asked to?
We have tried to find answers to these questions by taking into consideration the automated reporting requirements under FATCA and CRS (see below), but it turned out to be very difficult. There seems to be a difference depending on the user’s tax residence (US vs Non-US), the location of the exchange and even other factors like the banking partner of the exchange. It seems to be unclear how the legal requirements for automated reporting are or will be implemented by various crypto exchanges around the world.
That is why we decided to go for crowd intelligence and start the discussion here.
This is what we have so far:
- Financial institutions worldwide are legally required to automatically share their customer's information by the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and Common Reporting Standards (CRS). FATCA is relevant for the US taxpayers with foreign accounts, while CRS is relevant for the tax residents of over 100 CRS participating jurisdictions, which include the whole EU, but also China, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Singapore and Panama.
The automatically reported information includes personal data such as name and address of the account holder, but also financial data such as gross amount made from the sale of an asset held in the account and the account balance on the reporting date.
A good introduction and practical information on CRS and FATCA can be found here
- Whereas it is quite clear, when individuals need to report FATCA, it is not clear, which crypto exchanges globally are automatically providing FATCA or CRS reports to tax authorities.
Will exchanges in different jurisdictions consider themselves as financial institutions falling under the FATCA or CRS reporting requirements? Are crypto assets to be considered as financial asset to be reported under the CRS definitions?
At least for Bitfinex
we know that they are reporting both FATCA and CRS, as per Bitfinex email
to their customers sent already in May 2018. Bitstamp
do not mention FATCA or CRS reporting. However Binance has recently moved to Malta, which is one of the CRS participating jurisdictions. Kraken
’s Terms of Service
also do not explicitly mention FATCA or CRS. According to a Kraken related account on Reddit, Kraken does not “alert the IRS about your crypto”
, which probably means that at least at that time they did not automatically report to the IRS.
These examples show how different the situation might be for different exchanges.
Ultimately it seems clear that at least one exchange (Bitfinex) is automatically reporting both FATCA and CRS, whereas we can only hope that other exchanges do not do that, but ultimately, we do not know that. This also might change very quickly, and the regulators could require from exchanges to provide the corresponding information. We see US exchanges like Coinbase
reporting Form 1099-K to the IRS (which is however different to FATCA/CRS discussed here). We also see Kraken responding to requests from various law enforcement agencies
around the world.
What do you think, which exchanges might be reporting FATCA / CRS? Maybe you have personal experience with one of the exchanges and received FATCA / CRS forms from an exchange?
Would be great to have your thoughts and comments!
Real World Problems Related to Blockchain There have been several studies that look at the problems that may cause the delay in the adoption of the blockchain technology in the real-world applications, particularly the cryptocurrencies. 1. A large portion of the public have a negative impression towards cryptocurrencies, and blockchain, because of the past illegal activities associated with them. 2. Some cryptocurrency companies and exchanges are not fully compliant with government regulations due to the lack of will to change the status quo. 3. The existing architectures are not optimally scalable, and therefore may fail to serve up to larger groups of users. 4. The implementations of blockchain technology at many existing exchanges suffer from the trades-off between speed and security. 5. Complicated and error-prone processes can result in the loss of funds and lead to unhappy customers. 6. Digital wallet technology puts the burden on users to memorize and safeguard their wallet keys. 7. Small and medium size cryptocurrency exchanges face a liquidity dilemma. Customers expect liquidity but the exchanges won’t have enough liquidity unless they have more customers. Yezcoin Platform Solutions With our full awareness of the problems, we commit to providing the solutions to them. Yezcoin Platform is our brainchild that we proudly introduce to the blockchain community. 1. Yezcoin Platform assures that proper “know-your-customer (KYC)” and “anti-money laundering (AML)” are implemented with the blockchain technology 100% compliant with all government regulations. 2. Yezcoin Platform’s exchange model is a hybrid of a speedy centralized and a securely decentralized models. Yezcoin Platform can achieve the balance between the strengths of both models.
3 3. Our expertise in advanced mobile technology allows an efficient mobile blockchain implementation that will allow users to participate in Yezcoin Platform using mobile phones. 4. With a 2-factor authentication process plus biometrics authentication, in addition to screening for fraud and blacklisted sites, Yezcoin Platform can provide customers with peace-of-mind security. 5. We mitigate the risk of private key management with multi-signature signing technology. Yezcoin Platform customers can manage their private keys via their biometric data. 6. Our 24/7 customer services will ensure that our help is always a click away. 7. Yezcoin Platform is forming a Cryptocurrency Exchange Alliance where cryptocurrency exchanges will benefit from high liquidity and a larger pool of customers. The Yezcoin Platform To achieve all the solutions we promise, Yezcoin Platform, by Yezcoin, is developed using several state-of-the-art technologies exist today for the future. Yezcoin = Hybrid Exchange + KYC & AML + Biometrics ID + Smart AI + Mobile Blockchain Yezcoin Hybrid Exchange A centralized exchange is generally fast but less secured, while a decentralized exchange is secure with lower speed. There is room in the middle to balance speed and security by storing sensitive information on the chain while performing order matching off of the chain. This way Yezcoin will have the speed of centralized model and the world class security of a decentralized model. KYC & AML Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) rules have been the focus of government regulators trying to combat illegal activities in the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Unfortunately, existing cryptocurrency companies inherited KYC & AML issues since the birth of Bitcoin. As of now, no blockchain companies are able to claim that they are fully compliant with KYC & AML. Yezcoin will be the first company that is 100% KYC & AML compliant. Biometrics ID Biometric information usage has been increasing. Most modern smartphones come with Biometrics login capabilities. Enabling Biometrics ID to unlock a digital wallet is the next logical step. Many users have lost access to their wallets due to the loss of private keys. Yezcoin is using its proprietary encrypted Biometrics ID management solution to allow customers to unlock their digital wallets and securely manage their Biometrics ID. Smart AI Each cryptocurrency exchange trade comes with at least two options when making a purchase: 1) purchase with other cryptocurrency and pay full price; 2) purchase with the exchange currency and get a discounted price. Not all cryptocurrencies can be traded from every
4 exchange and some cryptocurrencies are only available on certain exchanges. There are many options and complicated steps involved in a cryptocurrency trading transaction. Among many options, there is an optimal path where the customer will pay the lowest fee for the same transaction. Yezcoin’s Smart AI will perform all complicated calculations and selections and only present the customer with the best deal for both buying and selling. Mobile Blockchain Mobile devices have become a part of modern life and are increasing in power day by day. Unfortunately, the requirements to run blockchain nodes are too demanding. Yezcoin is working with blockchain experts and mobile engineers to enable our blockchain solution to run on mobile devices. It is a challenging but vital next step that must be achieved if we want the world to adopt blockchain technology. It must work on mobile devices and Yezcoin is committed to making it happen. Yezcoin Scam Detector and International Sanctions Check The cryptocurrency market has grown tremendously since 2017. A vast amount of funding has been invested into cryptocurrency. Sadly, the high growth in the market has attracted fraud as well. Criminals will impersonate someone who is a cryptocurrency market influencer and pretend that they are running a campaign to give back to investors only after investors send them the requested cryptocurrency. Thousands of investors have become victims of these scams. Furthermore, with the ease of transferring money, funding of these illegal activities has been on the rise and the use of an International Sanctions List has become less effective. To address these issues, Yezcoin has developed features to verify every account whether it matches any published International sanctions information at the registration and also to alert users if the sending wallet address matches one of 3,000+ known scammer addresses. NEO and the Solution for Scalability Yezcoin is using NEO Blockchain to support our proprietary identity management solution because we believe that NEO is our best solution. There are a number of blockchain platforms offering different approaches. Among those, NEO stands out with high throughputs, a supportive community and scalable solutions. NEO provides a node program, Blockchain Explorer, SDK Development Kit, Smart Contract Compiler and IDE Plugin, decentralized applications. One of the highlights of NEO’s solution is the DBFT consensus algorithm. Consensus NEO’s consensus algorithm, Delegated Byzantine Fault Tolerance (DBFT), is an improved version of classic Byzantine Fault Tolerance for scalability.
