  1. A topic I've very interested of late is different models of governance for decentralized blockchain projects. One of the things I spotted in the whitepaper, and included in an unrelated blog post, was that the Flare Foundation is going to be running a voting delegate: "Flare will follow a liquid democracy model whereby token holders are free to vote themselves or to delegate some or all of their tokens (votes) to another entity which votes on their behalf, as defined in 3.8. A voting entity that amasses delegated votes can be formed by any one or collection of people. One of those entiti

  3. The choice between the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S is a difficult one, particularly for multiplayer gamers.

  4. I completely agree. And it's probably even scarier to them as some might not understand what's going on because of cognitive impairment or dementia.

  6. You never know: "However, a supporter was able to circumvent speech restrictions on this topic by embedding Yueโ€™s letter into the tamper-proof Ethereum blockchain." https://slate.com/technology/2018/07/blockchain-is-helping-to-circumvent-censorship-in-china.html Maybe this generation's equivalent to Radio Free Europe winds up being Radio Free Vitalik.
  7. I seem to remember David Schwartz addressing this issue in one of the recent podcasts or interviews he was a part of. Part of what he said was that they would get institutions that were signing up because they wanted to be seen as "innovating," but they weren't particularly ready to dive into the XRP pool just yet. Whether the reasons for that are a lack of regulatory clarity, a lack of corridor liquidity, or a better competitor, who knows.

  10. There's definitely a fair bit of science fiction and hype when it comes to discussions on AI, but I don't know that I would characterize the anthropomorphists as idiots.
  11. Exactly like that. At least until A.I. became sophisticated enough to equal or surpass a human intellect.
  12. In the future, smart contracts integrated with A.I. could run our judicial and legislative systems like clockwork: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Ripple-and-the-Benevolent-Machine-Dictatorship/qlXRJ2WVj
  13. The Royal Society of Canada released a report detailing the major problems with Canada's Elder-Care system. To those of us with relatives in some of these facilities, the causes were obvious: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Don-t-Grow-Old-in-Canada-Part-2/Zu7TLtZ8M
