  1. The choice between the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S is a difficult one, particularly for multiplayer gamers. Find out ๐ฐ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ก ๐จ๐ง๐ž ๐ญ๐จ ๐›๐ฎ๐ฒ in my latest Coil post: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Xbox-Series-X-vs-Xbox-Series-S-4k-gaming-vs-high-FPS/AnC65kVum
  2. 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.
  3. A call for rational discourse, policy, and governance in light of the coronavirus crisis: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Governance-by-Hysteria-The-COVID-Lockdown/UQgTbKKQo
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Chris Larsens proclaimed, ๐™๐™๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™˜๐™ ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ก๐™™๐™ฌ๐™–๐™ง ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™๐™š๐™ง๐™š. In this post I explore the implications of the digital Yuan wresting power away from the USD as the global reserve currency. https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Ripple-and-the-Pax-Americana-Regulations-Digital-Assets-and-Global-Affairs/D85qVr99y
  7. A brief post about XRP Censorship Resistance and State-Sponsored Attacks: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/XRP-Censorship-Resistance-and-State-Sponsored-Attacks/Do535zPeT
  8. 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.
  9. Exactly like that. At least until A.I. became sophisticated enough to equal or surpass a human intellect.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. I use this primary methodology to craft scene and environment descriptions in all of my writing: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Crafting-Vibrant-Worlds-in-Literature-/jTkdtg9Rj
  13. It was supposed to be ruining. Every time I think I've released a typo free document, there's always one buried in there somewhere. I'm very fond of that saying, "Life imitates art." It really captures the ability of science fiction writers to predict the future to a certain extent. There was article in a magazine like PopSci or Wired a while back about how Frank Herbert's Ornithopter designs might be well suited to use on Mars. I always thought that was super cool.
  14. It's a fairly optimistic forecast for a single game, but if we see widespread feature adoption those users could be spread across a bunch of different popular gaming titles. There's no real way to predict how the future of a blockchain marketplace would play out, but as an overall industry target, I think it's achievable. The original source:
  15. A preview of upcoming Forte Blockchain Gaming features: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Forte-Blockchain-and-PayID-Preview/5wRO0dSiC
  16. Some thoughts on the privacy and security model found in the PayID whitepaper: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/PayID-Privacy-and-Security/lAGDfreXn
  17. I wanted to play around with some of the XUMM features like non-native currency IOUs and in so doing I found an interesting workaround to some of Bitstamp's annoying trading barriers: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Fun-with-Xumm/H6TcoVyT6
  18. I guess the real cost would be whatever they could've sold it at on the market or to an institutional investor.

  21. Deep Rock Galactic is a cooperative, squad-based first-person shooter similar to games like Warhammer: Vermintide and Left 4 Dead. Read my full review on Coil: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/Deep-Rock-Galactic-Review-/ElPOMyD71
  22. It's a key feature for any cryptocurrency including XRP. Imagine going to the coffee shop and the employee can track the transaction back to your bank and see how much money you have in your checking account. Most people would be very uncomfortable with this. Great article! Was a very interesting read.
  23. The ModMic Wireless can turn your favorite headphones into a capable voip or gaming headset. Read my full review on coil: https://coil.com/p/macropolo/ModMic-Wireless-Review/8C8zrK-sD
  24. Yeah Valorant is the next big thing coming from a popular game studio so it was nice to see pop up on Coil. Planetside 2 was released a few years back. I think it still has a decent playerbase
