Ether Review Legal #4 – MME, the Beating Heart of Crypto Valley

Luka M?ƒller and Dianne Schepers of MME?’?Š?’"?’?Šthe Swiss law firm famous for running the Ethereum crowdsale?’?Š?’"?’?Šdiscuss jurisdictional constraints, Crypto Valley, novel crypto-asset classes and the ?’?œsecond wave?’ of tokenization.

With 25 previous ?’?œtoken generating events?’ and 60 pending projects, MME is a clear leader in the crypto law realm. The firm is now welcoming a ?’?œsecond wave?’ of clients; companies from the legacy economy which are seeking ways to enter the blockchain world through tokenizing their pre-existing equity.

In this discussion Luka outlines some of the major distinctions between US and Swiss law in relation to token issuance, looking at securities law, donations, and the commonly used foundation model. These and other regulatory differences, compounded by the stable and already-decentralized nature of Swiss government, make Switzerland the ideal jurisdiction for Crypto Valley, the rapidly growing successor to Silicon Valley based in Zug, a financial center.Alongside its long list of clients, MME is now focussed on creating Blockchain Crypto Property (BCP) standards. The final BCP paper, to be published in August, will classify tokens under a range of asset classes and outline a quality checklist for various token models. These standards will simplify risk assessment and ensure that tokens issued in Switzerland will be globally listable and tradeable.

The Crypto Show A Look At Decred With Marco Peerboom, Brian Deery & Matt Monsour

On Tonight’s episode of "The Crypto Show," Danny has returned to Denver with Matt Monsour of "Ink It Over." Our guests in studio are "Dances With Bitcoin," a.k.a., Brian Deary, Chief Scientist of Factom, and Marco Pierbaum, formerly of Coinvoice and currently with the development team of Decred (decred.org).

At this time post recording the Dash ATM is up and running at 2110 Gilpin st. Denver Co. Blocks from Denver University and right next-door to Starbuds a local cannabis dispensary.

Matt cracks us up and informs us that his new Bitcoin/Dash ATM is having some difficulty with respect to the set-up process, but that Matt will have a tech buddy of his assist in getting it fully operational. We then discuss a little about the cannabis industry and Ethereum and crypto.

Marco regales us with the details behind the cryptocurrency project "Decred," going into detail concerning its voting operations. Brian asks many pointed questions concerning the project, and we barely get a chance to discuss Ethereum. This show ends up being a lot of fun while being highly informative about a powerful crypto creeping below the surface that many might be aware of but probably should be keeping an eye on.

State Change #44?’??'”?’?A New Approach to Ending Slavery

Today, we look at the problem of modern slavery and how it intersects with wildlife conservation. This subject is brought to the fore by growing interest in using blockchain technologies to illuminate the business processes which conceal the presence of slavery. Our guests are Brian Iselin, founder of SlaveFreeTrade.org, and Bubba Cook, Western and Central Pacific Tuna Programme Manager for the World Wildlife Fund.

This episode was co-hosted and edited by Alexis Kenyon. Inevitably, some of this material will be disturbing.

Ether Review Legal Discussion #2 The Legality of Raising Money Using Tokens

In today?’?s discussion we look at the legality of raising money through token launches, the potential risks involved, and approaches to improving the safety of these new bearer assets. We also examine the term ICO in depth and find that terminology, while relevant is second to the nature of the offer and state of the project involved. Following the discussion is an interview With Peter Van Vaulkenburg recorded at Devcon 2, applying the Howy test to TheDAO.

#189 Jimmy Song: A Fork in the Road for Bitcoin?

After years of what has seemed like an endless debate, bitcoin may be at a crucial turning point in its relatively short lifetime. The question network scalability has divided the community into several factions which are seemingly irreconcilable. However, in just a few weeks, the future of bitcoin may be decided as miners and users throw their support behind one of many proposals to propel the bitcoin network into a new era.

Bitcoin Developer and Principal Architect at Paxos, Jimmy Song, joins us to discuss the different scalability proposals for which miners are currently signaling their support. Among others, Segregated Witness (BIP 141), Emergent Consensus (Bitcoin Unlimited) and SegWit2x (The New York Agreement), are gaining significant traction among miners. Will one of these proposals gain majority support, allowing for the network to upgrade with relative ease, or will we enter a situation where one proposal is backed by a strong minority of users, potentially forking the network into two?

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Jimmy’s background as a Bitcoin Developer and former VP of Engineering at Armory
  • A broad overview of bitcoin network’s current situation
  • An overview of the different scaling proposals for which miners are signaling their support
  • Important dates coming up in July and August of 2017
  • The difference between Segregated Witness and SegWit2x
  • The UASF and how it may affect SegWit2x implementation

The Ether Review #67 ?'” Celebrating Erik Voorhees Week with Erik Voorhees!

In this, the sixty seventh episode of The Ether Review, we set out to understand Prism, Shapeshift?’?s new non-custodial synthetic asset built on the Ethereum network. In reviewing this episode I feel I was unsuccessful in achieving this. However, the peripheral conversation about Erik?’?s view of the space is extremely enlightening, especially writ large in his positioning of Shapeshift. The Bitcoin scaling debate, the future of digital assets, the financial world?’?s response?’?Š?’"?’?Šit?’?s all here.

Some of this interview was geared to fit Shapeshift?’?s messaging, not something you?’?ll hear on TER very often. None the less, it?’?s fun to hear such an astute thinker and communicator knock some soft ball questions out of the park.

The Crypto Show: Julia Tourianski in San Francisco with Danny

On tonight?’?s episode of ?’?œThe Crypto Show,?’ our guest is Julia Tourianski of www.bravetheworld.com and the Youtube channel ?’?œbravetheworld.?’ Before we talk to her, however, Danny updates us on his recent arrival to San Francisco, where he has already met up with Julia. Despite some automotive troubles, Danny has been able to stay on track with his trip, and he gives us a quick review of his success in getting Gun Compensator, LLC, in Torrence, California, to become a distributor for the GhostGunner, and already several have sold. Danny also has an owner of a dispensary verbally on board to get a Bitcoin/Dash ATM.

Julia joins us from her new home in San Francisco to introduce the world to the new material that she is creating on her website and channel. She also regales us with some interesting personal anecdotes about her time already in San Francisco, and how they indicate the political climate there and throughout the rest of the country.

We then have a long discussion about the price and future of Bitcoin, as well touch upon the block-size debate, and Julia answers questions I have about the incentives involved for owners of nodes and for the Bitcoin core developers. I also mention her awesome T-shirts available at her website, and Julia announces that she will be appearing at PorcFest.

The saying goes: if you’re not paying for it, it’s likely that you’re the product. And with the rise of targeted ads, user behavior tracking, and alike, more and more users are turning to ad blocking software to protect their privacy and improve their browsing experience. In the last 25 years, the content monetization and Internet advertising industries have evolved to become complex ecosystems with multiple intermediating layers between users, publishers, and advertisers. This has created a situation where user’s rights are constantly violated and where little accountability exists.

We’re joined by Brendan Eich, Founder, and CEO of Brave. As an early Internet pioneer, Brendan created Javascript while working at Netscape in the mid 90’s, and helped found the Mozilla Foundation and Mozilla Corporation, where he served as CEO for several years. Brave is a new desktop and mobile browser which blocks ads and tracking by default. This has the advantage of drastically improves page load times while protecting users’ privacy. But Brave is much more than just a browser. Their team will launch the Basic Attention Token, which will serve as the currency of attention marketplaces between publishers, advertisers, and users. With the ambition to turn the Internet advertising industry on its head, this new attention economy marketplace will eliminate the need for unneeded intermediaries, provide publishers with new content monetization models and remunerate users when they chose to share their data with advertisers.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Brendan’s background as an early Internet pioneer
  • How monetization of content and attention on the Internet are broken
  • How the Internet advertising industry works and the players involved
  • A high-level overview of the Brave browser
  • Brave’s features and product roadmap
  • The Basic Attention Token and its role as a currency for attention
  • How BAT will serve to create attention marketplaces between publishers, advertisers, and users

State Change #41 Unpacking Digital Identity – Christian Lundkvist, Stephen Wilson

Today we compare in-depth the self-sovereign and federated models of identity. Why is our means of proving who we are important? Well, for one thing, relying on an authority which doesn?’?t have our best interests at heart to manage our identity is one of the many problems exploited by the decentralized propaganda machine described last episode.

Our guests today are Christian Lundkvist, senior technologist at ConsenSys and Chief Architect and Researcher of the uPort self sovereign identity platform, and Steve Wilson, has spent 22 years researching identity, 14 of which has been independent. Steve currently leads the independent research business, Lockstep and is also working with Constellation Research where he studies blockchain technology.

183 – Alex Van de Sande & Nick Johnson: ENS ?'” A Global Naming System for Ethereum

Support the show, consider donating:BTC: 1LvYWeH6kxhq3o99yNRRedyMufroWkAMkk (http://bit.ly/2pDNES7)ETH: 0x8cdb49ca5103Ce06717C4daBBFD4857183f50935 (http://bit.ly/2pEUs2f)

Naming systems are an important component of any networked information system. It’s difficult to imagine how the Internet could have been adopted by the masses had it not been for the Domain Name System, which translates machine-readable IP addresses into human-readable domain names. Blockchains, with their long and complex address formats, suffer from a similar problem. One might think a solution would be to apply the same naming system architecture we have for the public Internet to public blockchains. But DNS, in the eyes of many, is a largely flawed system. Centrally controlled by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), Internet domain names are vulnerable to censorship and barriers to entry are kept artificially high ?’" registering a new Top Level Domain (ex: .epicenter) costs hundreds of thousands of dollars.

We’re joined by Alex Van de Sande and Nick Johnson to discuss their approach to creating an open, secure and decentralized naming system for the Ethereum Network. The Ethereum Naming System (ENS) allows users to register .eth domain names, which can be used in supporting Ethereum wallets and clients. Names are reserved by placing a deposit in a smart contract and can be mapped to any Ethereum addresses. So rather than sending funds to 0x8cd…0935, one would simply need to type a memorable name like epicenter.eth into their wallet. Backed by the Ethereum Foundation, ENS will likely become the defacto standard for name registration in Ethereum.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Alex and Nick’s respective backgrounds and roles in the Ethereum Foundation
  • How the Internet’s Domain Name System works
  • The problems and pain points with DNS and how it is governed today
  • What is ENS and what problems it is addressing
  • The ENS auction system and how names are registered
  • The different parties involved in ENS
  • ENS’s technical architecture and governing smart contract
  • The current governance model of ENS and future plans for increased decentralization of governance
  • ENS’s economic model and technical roadmap

State Change #39 Technologies of Social Organization ?'” Vinay Gupta, Joseph Lubin

Technology enables new forms of social organisation. That statement is itself a truism, but as we see technological development accelerate, our means of organising ourselves is constantly changing.

Our guests today are Joseph Lubin and Vinay Gupta. Joe is the Founder of ConsenSys and co-founder of Ethereum. He has a background in robotics, software engineering, and wealth management. He also had a short stint as CEO of a Jamaican record label. Vinay Gupta is the inventor of the Hexayurt emergency shelter and was once a member of both ConsenSys and Ethereum. Vinay now runs an investment firm, Hexayurt Capital.

Have we reached an inflection point where old systems exist at odds with reality? Both Joe and Vinay think that might be the case. We discuss the nature of the firm as described by Ronald Coase, intermediation price discovery, the future of organization and the role of burning man in the birth of the internet. We compare the Joe?’?s and Vinay?’?s organizations and explore the role of blockchain in decentralized organizations.
