Hi everybody this is Charles Hoskinson broadcasting live from warm sunny Colorado. I'm trying a new streaming service and it allows me to annotate a few things and simulcast to both periscope and youtube. Let's see how this works. I also get to put a little caption. I think for the future, I'm just for a while going to put: "I will never give away ada". So, when people repost my videos for giveaway scams they at least have that. First off, a thank you, a community member named Daryl had decided to carve a log and give his artistic impression of my twitter profile picture of me and the falcon so that always means a lot when I get these gifts from fans and also I just wanted to, on the back of the Catalyst presentation, express my profound gratitude and excitement to the community.
You know it's really really cool to see how much progress has been made in such a short period of time. It was only yesterday when we were saying "when Shelley"? Now Shelley's out and it's evolving rapidly. Voltaire is now starting to evolve rapidly and we're real close to Goguen. At the end of this month we'll be able to talk around some of the realities of Goguen and some of the ideas we have and give some dates for certain things and give you a sense of where that project is at. The good news is that we have gained an enormous amount of progress and knowledge about what we need to do and how to get that done and basically people are just executing and it's a much smaller task than getting us to Shelley. With Byron to Shelley we literally had to build a completely new cryptocurrency from the ground up. We had to have new ledger rules, new update system, we had to invent a way of transitioning from one system to another system and there's hundreds of other little innovations along the way: new network stack and so forth. Byron cosmetically looks like Shelley but under the hood it's completely different and the Shelley design was built with a lot of the things that we needed for Goguen in mind. For example, we built Shelley with the idea of extended UTXO and we built Shelley understanding what the realities were for the smart contract model and that's one of the advantages you get when you do this type of bespoke engineering. There's two consequences to that, one, the integration is significantly easier, and two, the integration is significantly faster. We won't look at that same complexity there.
The product update at the end of the month... We'll really start discussing around some of these things as well as talk about partners and talk about how the development ecosystem is going to evolve. There are a lot of threads throughout all three organizations that are happening simultaneously. Emurgo, they're really thinking deeply about DeFi and they've invited us to collaborate with them on things like stablecoins for example but we're also looking at oracles (oracle pools), DEX and these other things and because there are already people in market who have made mistakes, learned lessons, it gives us the benefit of hindsight. It means we can be much faster to market and we can build much more competitive things in market and the Cardano community gets first access to these next generation DeFi applications without a lot of the problems of the prior generations and that's super beneficial to us.
You know, the other side of it, is that Voltaire is going to have a systemic influence not just on community funding but also the overall evolution and direction of the platform. The longer it exists the more pervasive it will become. Probably first applied towards the Cardano foundation roadmap but later on it will definitely have a lot of influence and say over every element aspect of the system including the launch dApps and these other things. Basically, long term, the types of problems that Cardano solves so that's incredibly appealing to me and very exciting to me because it's like I have this giant community brain with the best and brightest of all of you working with us to get us where we need to go.
You know, another thing that was super encouraging, it's a small thing, but it shows us that we're definitely in the right direction was that we recently got a demo from Pramod (Viswanath) and his team out of university of Illinois on a protocol they create called PrisM which is a super fast proof-of-work protocol and they wrote this beautiful paper and they wrote code along with it that showed that PrisM is a ten thousand times faster than Nakamoto consensus. If you take the bitcoin proof-of-work protocol, you strip it out, you put PrisM in, you can run the entire bitcoin system 10000 times faster. They have these beautiful benchmarks to show that. Even in bad network conditions. (I'm) promoting this team, they're, they're real researchers, and they're real engineers, they use a lot of cool HPC concepts like springboarding and other things like that to accommodate that. Then I asked him in the presentation, I said well, how much faster if you replay the Ethereum chain? He says, well, that it takes a big performance hit, could be only maybe a hundred times because that model is not as easy to optimize and shard with standard computer science concepts. In fact in some cases there are limitations there that really can't be overcome. It turns out that we're more on that UTXO side than we are on the account side. As a coincidence or intent of the design of extended UTXO we're gonna have a lot easier time getting much higher performance where and when it's necessary.
I also approved this week a scaling up of the Basho project. In particular, to build a hydra prototype team. The science has gotten to a point where we can make a really competitive push in that particular direction. What does that mean? It means that in just a few short months we can de-risk technological approaches that long-term will give us a lot of fruit where and when the community decides that they need infrastructure like hydra. Now, here's the beautiful thing about hydra. If you watch my whiteboard back in September of 2017 when Cardano first hit market with Byron I talked about this concept of looking at scalability with a very simple test which is as you get more people in the system it stays at the same performance or it gets faster. We all experience systems that do this, for example, bittorrent, more people downloading something you tend to be able to get it faster and we all experience the converse which is, the system gets slower when you get more people. What does this mean? It means that hydra is an actual approach towards true scalability in the system and it's a lot easier to do than sharding even though we have a beautiful approach to get the sharding on the ledger side if we truly desire to go down that way. There's beautiful ideas that we are definitely in deep discussions about. That's a very complex thing. There was recently a paper ("Ebb-and-Flow Protocols: A Resolution of the Availability-Finality Dilemma") out of Stanford that showed that the Gasper protocol as proposed for ETH2.0 does have some security concerns and it's going to be the burden on the shoulders of the Ethereum 2.0 developers and Vitalik to address those concerns from those Stanford professors. Whenever you have these very complex protocols they have so many different ways they can break and things can go wrong so it's much more appealing when you don't have to embrace complexity to achieve the same. The elegance of hydra is that stake pool operators are very natural parties to put hydra channels on and every time we add one we get much more performance out of that and the system as it gets more valuable. The k factor increases which means you get more stake pull operators, which means you get more hydra channels, so with growth we get appreciation, with appreciation we get more decentralization, with more decentralization we get more performance. In essence, this spiritually speaking, is really what we meant when we said scalability. That the system will always grow to meet its particular needs and we have a very elegant way of moving in that direction that doesn't require us to embrace very sophisticated techniques. It's not to say that these techniques don't have a place and purpose but it says that the urgency of implementing these is gone and we then have the luxury to pick the best science when it's ready instead of rushing it to market to resolve a crisis of high fees. We'll never have that crisis so there's a beauty to Cardano that is missing, I in my view, from many cryptocurrencies and blockchains in the marketplace and we're now seeing that beauty shine through. Not only through our community who are so passionate and amazing but in the science and the engineering itself and how easy it is for us to navigate the concepts. How easy it is for us to add more things, to take some things away, to clean some things up here and there and our ability to move through.
I never imagined when in 2015 I signed up to go in on this crazy ride and try to build a world financial operating system we would have made as much progress as we made today. We've written more than 75 research papers as an organization many of which are directly applicable to Cardano. We've got great partners who work with Nasa and Boeing and Pfizer, massive companies, that have 10 years of history and millions of users to come in and help us grow better. We've worked with incredible organizations, major universities like university of Wyoming, university of Edinburgh, Tokyo, tech professors all across the world. We've worked with incredible engineering firms like VacuumLabs and AtixLabs and Twig and Well-Typed, runtime verification, QuviQ and dozens of others along the years and despite the fact that at times there's been delays and friction throughout this entire journey we've mostly been aligned and we keep learning and growing. It gives me so much hope that our best days are ahead of us and an almost fanatical belief that success is inevitable in a certain respect. You see because we always find a way to be here tomorrow and we always find a way to make tomorrow a better day than today and as long as that's the trend you're monotonically increasing towards a better tomorrow, you're always going to have that outcome, you're always going to be in a position where Cardano shines bright. Towards the end of the month we'll have a lot more to say about the development side and that'll be a beginning just like Voltaire is the beginning and then suddenly you now notice the beautiful parallelism of the roadmap. Shelley continues to evolve, partial delegation is coming, in fact, I signed the contract with vacuumlabs to bring that to Ledger (and Trezor). The Daedalus team is hard at work to make that feature apparent for everyone as is the Yoroi team.
You see that, with now Voltaire, and soon was Goguen, and these are not endpoints, rather they're just beginnings and they're never over. We can always make staking better, more diverse, more merit-based and entertain different control models, have better delegation mechanics, have better user experience. The same for smart contracts, that's an endless river and along the way what we've discovered is it's easy for us to work with great minds and great people. For example with testing of smart contracts I would love to diversify that conversation above and beyond what we can come up with and bring in some firms who have done this for a long time to basically take that part with us shoulder to shoulder and build beautiful frameworks to assist us. For example, runtime verification is doing this with, the EVM with a beautiful project called Firefly to replace Truffle. I believe that we can achieve similar ends with Plutus smart contracts.
When you ask yourself what makes a system competitive in the cryptocurrency space? In my view there are four dimensions and you have to have a good story for all four of those dimensions. You need security and correctness. A lot of people don't prioritize that but when they get that wrong it hurts retail people, it hurts everyday people, billions of dollars have been lost due to the incompetence and ineptitude of junior developers making very bad mistakes and oftentimes those developers faced no consequences. The people who lost money were innocent people who believed in cryptocurrencies and wanted to be part of the movement but didn't protect themselves adequately. That's a really sad thing and it's unethical to continue pushing a model that that is the standard or the likely outcome rather than a rare edge case. You have to as a platform, a third generation platformn invest heavily in giving the developers proper tools to ensure security and correctness. We've seen a whole industry there's been great innovations out of Quantstamp and ConsenSys and dozens of other firms in the space including runtime verification who have really made major leaps in the last few years of trying to improve that story. What's unique to Cardano is that we based our foundations on languages that were designed right the first time and there's over 35 years of history for the approach that we're following in the Haskell side that allows us to build high assurance systems and our developers in the ecosystem to build high assurance systems. We didn't reinvent the wheel, we found the best wheel and we're giving it to you.
I think we're going to be dominant in that respect as we enter 2021. Second, you look at things like ease of maintenance, ease of deployment, the life cycle of the software upgrades to the software and as we've demonstrated with things like the hard fork combinator and the fact that Voltaire is not just a governance layer for ada and Cardano but will eventually be reusable for any dApp deployed on our system. You have very natural tooling that's going to allow people to upgrade their smart contracts, their dApps and enable governance for their users at an incredibly low cost and not have to reinvent the governance wheel each and every application. This is another unique property to our system and it can be reused for the dApps that you deploy on your system as I've mentioned before. Performance is a significant concern and this was often corrupted by marketers especially ICO marketers who really wanted to differentiate (and) say: "our protocol tested on a single server in someone's basement is 500000 transactions per second" and somehow that translates to real life performance and that's antithetical to anyone who's ever to study distributed systems and understands the reality of these systems and where they go and what they do and in terms of performance. I think we have the most logical approach. You know, we have 10 years of history with bitcoin, it's a massive system, we've learned a huge amount and there's a lot of papers written about, a lot of practical projects and bitcoin is about to step into the world of smart contracts. We congratulate them on getting Schnorr sigs in and the success of Taproot. That means entering 2021, 2022, we are going to start seeing legitimate dApps DeFi projects, real applications, instead of choosing Ethereum or Algorand, EOS, Cardano, choosing bitcoin and they're adding a lot to that conversation. I think that ultimately that model has a lot of promise which is why we built a better one. There are still significant limitations with what bitcoin can accomplish from settlement time to the verbosity of contracts that can be written.
The extended UTXO model was designed to be the fastest accounting and most charitable accounting model ever, on and off chain, and hydra was designed to allow you to flex between those two systems seamlessly. When you look at the foundations of where we're at and how we can extend this from domain specific languages, for domain experts, such as Marlowe to financial experts, and the DSLs that will come later, for others, like lawyers and supply chain experts in medical databases and so forth and how easy it is to write and deploy these. Plutus being beautiful glue code for both on and off chain communications. I think we have an incredibly competitive offering for performance and when hydra comes, simply put, there'll be no one faster. If we need to shard, we're going to do that and definitely better than anybody else because we know where our security model sits and there won't be surprise Stanford papers to blindside us that require immediate addressing.
In terms of operating costs, this is the last component, in my view, and that's basically how much does it cost you the developer to run your application? There are really two dimensions, one is predictability and the other is amount. It's not just good enough to say: it's a penny per transaction today. You need to know that after you spend millions of dollars and months or years of effort building something and deploying something that you're not going to wake up tomorrow and now it's five dollars to do what used to cost a penny. You need that cost to be as low as possible and as predictable as possible and again the way that we architectured our system and as we turn things on towards the end of this year and as we enter into the next year we believe we have a great approach to achieve low operating cost. One person asks why Cardano? Well because we have great security and correctness in the development experience and tools with 35 years of legacy that were built right the first time and don't put the burdens of mistakes on your customers. They ask why Cardano and we say: well the chain itself is going to give you great solutions with identity value transformation and governance itself and as a consequence when you talk about upgrading your applications having a relationship with your customers of your applications and you talk about the ease of maintenance of those applications. There's going to be a good story there and we have beautiful frameworks like Voltaire that allow that story to evolve and we keep adding partners and who have decades of experience to get us along. We won't stop until it's much better. They asked why Cardano? We said because at the moment we're 10 times faster today than Ethereum today and that's all we really need for this year and next year to be honest and in the future we can be as fast as we need to be because we're truly scalable. As the system gets more decentralized the system improves performance and where and when we need to shard we can do that. We'll have the luxury of time to do it right, the Cardano way, and when people ask why Cardano? Because the reality is, it's very cheap to do things on our platform and the way we're building things. That's going to continue being the case and we have the governance mechanisms to allow the community to readjust fees and parameters so that it can continue being affordable for users. Everything in the system will eventually be customizable and parameterizable: from block size, to transaction fees and the community will be in a good position to dynamically allocate these things where and when needed so that we can enjoy as an ecosystem predictability in our cost.
In the coming weeks and months, especially in my company, we're going to invest a lot of time and effort into comparison marketing and product marketing. When I see people say, oh well, you've launched proof of stake, a lot of other people have done. I don't think those people fully appreciate the magnitude of what we actually accomplished as an ecosystem and the quality of the protocols that are in distribution. That's not their fault, it's our fault, because we didn't take the time in simplistic terms, not scientific papers and deep code and formal specifications, but rather everyday language, to really show why we're different. I admit that that's a product failing and that needs to be corrected so we hired a great marketing director, named Liza (Horowitz?) and she is going to work full time with me and others in the ecosystem, a great team of people, every single day to get out there and explain what we have done is novel, unique, competitive and special to our industry. Everything from Ouroboros and contrast to major other protocols from the EOSes and Algorands and the Tezos of the world. Why we're different, trade-offs we chose over them, to our network stack, to the extended UTXO model, to Plutus, to Marlowe and we're going to keep hammering away at that until we get it right and everybody acknowledges and sees what has been accomplished.
I've spent five years of my life, good years of my life, and missed a lot to get this project where it needs to go. All of our employees have invested huge sums of their personal lives, their time, their brand, their careers, in trying to make this the really most magical and special cryptocurrency and blockchain infrastructure around. No one ever signed up in this company or the other companies working on Cardano to work on a mediocre protocol. That's just another blockchain, they signed up to change the world, they signed up to build a system that legitimately can look at you in the face and say: one day we have the potential to have a billion users! That's what they signed up for and they showed up to play. They built technology that evolves in that direction with some certainty and great foundations and we have an obligation to market in a way that can show the world why, succinctly, with clarity. Understandably, this has been a failing in the past but you know what? You can always be better tomorrow that monotonically increasing make it better and that's what we're going to do. We recognized it and we're going to invest in it and with Voltaire if we can't do it. You the community can do it and we'll work with you. If you can do a better job and the funding will be there to get that done. In addition to this, we think about 2021 and we ask where does the future take us? I've thought a lot about this you know I've thought a lot about how do we get the next five years as we close out 2020 and here's the reality: we're not going to leave as a company until we have smart contracts and multi-asset and Voltaire has evolved to a point where the community can comfortably make decisions about the future of the protocol and that the staking experience has solidified and it's stable.
I don't care if this costs me millions or tens of millions of dollars out of my own pocket to make happen. I'm going to do that because that's my commitment to you, the community and every product update will keep pushing our way there. We'll continue to get more transparent, we'll continue to get more aggressive and hire more and parallelize more. Aware when we can, to deliver that experience so that Cardano gets where it needs to go. Then when we ask about where do we go next? The reality is that the science as an industry, the engineering as an industry has given a menu of incredibly unique attractive and sexy things that we can pursue. What we're going to do is work with the community and the very same tools that are turning on today, the Voltaire tools, the cardano.ideascale.com tools and we're going to propose a consortium and we're going to bring the best and brightest together and give a vision of where we can take the system in another five years. With the benefit of hindsight, massively improved processes, better estimation capabilities and the fact that we're not starting with two people at IOG. We're starting with 250 people and the best scientific division in our industry and the legacy of almost, nearly by the end of this year, 100 scientific papers. That's us, you know what, there's dozens of companies throughout the history who have worked on Cardano. It's about time to scale them up too and get client diversity. So come next year when the protocol has evolved to the point where it's ready for it, we'll have that conversation with you the community and that's going to be a beautiful conversation. At the conclusion of it, there's going to be certainty of how we're going to evolve over the next five years to get ourselves beyond the cryptocurrency space. I'm very tired of these conversations we have about: are you going to go to (coindesk's) consensus or not? Or who's going to be the big winner? What about Libra or what about this particular regulation and this crypto unicorn and this thing?
You know I've been in the space a long time and I've noticed that people keep saying the same things year after year in the same venues. Yes, the crowd sizes get larger and the amount of value at risk gets larger but I haven't seen a lot of progress in the places where I feel it is absolutely necessary for this technology to be permanent in the developing world. We need to see economic identity. People often ask what is the mission for Cardano? For us IOG, you look at economic identity and you take a look at a roadmap. For it, you scale up and down, and each and every step along the way, from open data, to self-sovereign identity, to financial inclusion. You can keep going down: to decentralized lending, decentralized insurance, decentralized banking. Each and every step along the way to economic identity. When you admit a blockchain tells you that, there's a collection of applications and infrastructure that you need to build.
My life's work is to get to a point where we have the technology to do that. The infrastructure to do that, with principles, and so we'll keep evolving Cardano and we'll keep evolving the space as a whole and the science as a whole until I can wake up and say: each box and that road to economic identity, for all people not just one group, we have a solution for that. I'm going to put those applications on Cardano and success for me is not about us being king of the crypto hill and having a higher market cap than bitcoin or being entrepreneur of the year coindesk's most influential person. It's meaningless noise, success for me is reflecting back at the things that we have accomplished together and recognizing that millions if not billions now live in a system where they all matter, they all have a voice, they all have an equal footing. The Jeff Bezos of the world have the very same experience as the person born in Rwanda and we're not done until that's the case. It's a long road, it's a hard road, but you know what? We're making progress, we have great people in Africa, we have great people in eastern Europe, we have great people in southeast Asia and great partners all along the way. Great people, Latin America, great people in south America, great people here in the United States.
When we talk about economic identity there are millions, if not tens of millions of Americans who don't have it. Same for Canadians, hundreds of thousands, who don't have it. Developed western cultures, it's the greatest blind spot of policy and as we enter into a depression as a result of coronavirus, add millions if not tens of millions more onto that list. Generations are being disenfranchised by this legacy system and we as an ecosystem, we as an entire community are offering a different way forward. Not hyper centralizationn not social credit but a way forward where you own your own money, your own identity, your own data. You're not a victim of surveillance capitalism, you're not a victim of civil asset forfeiture. When you say the wrong things, you get shut out of society. Each and every human being matters and I'm optimistic to believe that when you remind people that they matter they're gonna rise to the occasion. That is the point of my company. In the things that we do each and every day, that's our mission to give the platforms to the world so that those who don't have economic identity can get it and they can keep it and no one can take it from them and they can enjoy an ever increasing growth of standard of living wealth and prosperity.
However you want to measure that this is my goal post, I couldn't care less about the cryptocurrency space. It was a great place to start but the space needs to be reminded why it exists. Bitcoin was given a mandate on the back of the 2008 financial crisis to do something different. It was not given a mandate to go be a new settlement layer for central banks or a new way for the old guard to make more money and banks get bigger and for those who are in control to preserve their power. The whole point of doing something so crazy as to buy a coin that doesn't even exist in real life, that's just a bunch of numbers in the cloud, the whole point of that was so that we as a society could do something different than the way that we'd been doing things before. So, each and every member of the cryptocurrency space needs to remind everyone else from time to time why we're here and where did we come from and where are we going to go.
The beauty of Cardano is we have already achieved for the most part a decentralized brain and that momentum is pushing harder than ever. More and more scientists are waking up, more and more institutions are waking up, getting us there. The code we have, the right approach and I think we have a great competitive offering for 2021 as we go and battle the titans and that's going to be a lot of fun but we know who we are and where we're going and we're in the right places. It's so incredibly encouraging to see the stake pool operators not just be from California or Texas or New York or Canada. To see a lot of stake pool operators from the place that need the most, help everybody does matter and it means a lot to me for the people who are there but it means a lot to everybody to say that we have created an equal platform. It makes the participation of all of us so much more meaningful. We're not just talking to each other, we're talking to the world and by working together on this platform we're lifting the world up and giving people hope. That's the point, there's a lot more to do, we didn't get everything done. You never do you aspire, you work hard, you set a moon, shot and sometimes you can just get to orbit with the first go but you know what? When you build the next rocket you can go to Mars.
Thank you all for being with me, thank you all for being part of this. Today was a damn good day with the announcement of Voltaire. Go to cardano.ideascale.com. You can participate in that, so end of September is going to be a good day too. There's a lot of good days to come, in between a lot of hard days, doing tasks sometimes entirely forgettable but always necessary to keep the revolution going and the movement going. I cannot wait for 2021, our best days are ahead of us, because of you. You all take care now .

2020.09.08 17:27 klaudiaschulz Everything you know about the next NEM update: Symbol

Since last July, the cryptocurrency of the NEM Foundation, XEM, has been several times in the top weekly of CriptoNoticias. In the course of this 2020 the cryptocurrency has reached a level of appreciation that exceeds 300%.
One of the reasons that seem to be linked to this growth has to do with the progress of one of the projects being carried out by NEM: the Symbol platform.
According to the NEM Foundation, Symbol Network is an update of the NEM or NEM 2.0 blockchain, a new network aimed at the institutional sector. It will serve businesses of all sizes, from one-man operations to those run by large corporations.
The platform will provide support in data management, logistics, notarization, construction, finance and asset management. "What NEM intends is to reduce operating costs while providing new ways to create value," read some writings. The goal is for companies to design blockchains, private, open or hybrid, with different levels of interaction, configuring an asset tokenization system.
Symbol is scheduled to launch on December 17 of this year , although it may be delayed up to 3 more months depending on testing.
NEM co-founder Jeff McDonald stated that building Symbol has applied all the learning that comes from running version 1 of the NEM blockchain, for over four years.
"Symbol is a more functional, scalable and feature-rich protocol that will become the core engine of NEM, powering private and public blockchains," said Jeff, who sees three other blockchain projects as competitors: Hyperledger, Ethereum and Libra from Facebook (the latter in plans).
The new blockchain will run separately from the original NEM NIS1 chain (which will continue to operate). Symbol will start with a maximum supply of 7.2 billion native XYM tokens. In this article we will show you all the improvements that Symbol brings.

NEM prepares to exchange XEM for Symbol XYM tokens

The news on the progress of Symbol diffuse from 2019 and there have been numerous since January 2020, to launch the network testing. In April, NEM laid out its new governance plans in preparation for launch. Since then, he has been carrying out an intense information campaign aimed at his community.
The most recent announcement is the activation of Opt-in for Symbol on September 15th. This is the method for XEM holders, interested in participating in the new platform, to claim their Symbol XYM tokens, which will be used as peer-to-peer cash and for transactions.
The allocation will be made taking into account the balance in XEM of the users, according to the capture of the network accounting on the scheduled date. Depending on the amount, an equivalent amount of XYM will be allocated to the subscribers' portfolios. Non-subscribers will be able to claim their XYM within 6 years from the launch date.

2020.08.31 23:17 Ilforte Russian translations 3: Toy People, Toy Money

This is a continuation of a series of translations of Russian conservative writings (1, 2, some assorted bits here and there) that I find edifying in present climate. This one specifically is about money and power in near future.
Shout-out to FD4280 who some 17 days ago asked me about a partial quote; and apologies for the culture shock or inadequacies of my sloppy work.
Krylov had a very dim view of the future, and a very paranoid view of the people in power. The first I read of him was a dim sci-fi story lampooning genre tropes, one about far future where humanity has developed FTL travel, nanomachines etc. and populated the galaxy, yet nearly everyone lives in dehumanizing squalor, jobless on UBI or doing some degrading work, no culture is allowed to the proles, economic crises continue to destroy entire solar systems' worth of labor, and unlike normal Western sci-fi it's not just illogical props, like in "Mandalorian", but a system very deliberately engineered to a particular end. Back then I did not understand anything, but it hit a nerve.
Here's a second speculative piece in a series; the first one, briefly, is about an eventual transformation of our modern smartphone-dominated reality into AR with corporate-controlled familiars/servants, "Pokemons", which will elicit an emotional bond and direct attention better than Big Tech innovations allow to at this point. Both tie into the concept of "Cyber-GULAG with postmodern characteristics" that was laughed at for a long time, but rapidly focused into plausibility this spring, when Muskovites learned that they may need QR codes to get out of their apartments.

Toy People, 25.07.2016, Konstantin Krylov

As statistics show, my previous article about Pokemons and their upcoming triumph aroused some interest. It is glorious when people are interested in their future. In order not to disappoint the readers, I have decided to continue the topic - this time devoting attention to another aspect of the coming world, namely the financial one.
One of the few methods of predicting the future that work (with all the caveats) is to use the principle "global trend eventually overmights [untranslatable, "перемогает"] local". Here, this Ukrainian word is appropriate: it exactly "overwhelms" - that it, overpresses, overpowers the resistant reality, in spite of all its fits. Because "that's where the thing is going".
The simplest example. Since the Neolithic Age people have been improving the means of communication. First, to communicate with a person from a neighboring village, one had to go there. Then they had to ride on horseback. Then - to take a paved road. Then, there were steam trains and steam boats, and you could get to a far away place in a few days. Telegraph, phone and e-mail have finished the problem: now the time spent on contact has been reduced to almost zero. Note: there were regular slowdowns, retreats, losses of technology along the way. Let's say, the Roman messaging system was much superior to the medieval one. The oldest technology - pigeon mail - was rediscovered multiple times (which, in particular, caused the rise of the Rothschilds). But, in general, the trend broke its way through.
Here's a more complicated example. It is known that as the military technology improves, army losses decrease, but civilian losses increase. The trend dates back to ancient times and was on several occasions close to its peak, for example in the late Middle Ages. The mass armies and especially the great slaughterhouses of the 20th century seemed to have disproved it. However, now it is clear to everyone - the matter is progressing again, and this time it is final. That is, missiles and robots will fight, and civilians will bear the losses. And now it will not be reverted, the game is done.
So, now we'll talk about a very important global trend. I would call it the disarmament of the population.
What do I mean? In the Neolithic, any man armed with a stone axe was dangerous. And not only for other men, but also for the authorities. And the difference between him and another man with a stone axe was not qualitative, but quantitative. Several men with axes could kill the chief of the tribe.
Now we see that even millions of ordinary people can do nothing against the elite of the state - so powerful it is and so weak they are. Simultaneously, the philistine is also weak against other philistines, because they are protected by this same state. Moreover, any community, even the most negligible one, provided it has a state mandate to mock the philistine, can do it as much as it feels like. Nowadays, such a mandate is regularly given to the so-called 'minorities', who bully and terrorize the law-abiding herd as they wish. Blacks, feminists, gays, Muslims - all of them, if they wish, can do what they want with any "white cisgender man", from insults and harassment to physical violence. He can do nothing, nothing at all.
How is this achieved? In different ways, but the main thing is disarmament and putting things under control. That is: they take away everything that can harm the state from the commoner, and control everything that can be used to cause such harm. In the end, everything will be taken away from him and everything will be controlled too.
In order not to look far for the example. Let's take the weapon in the most literal sense of the word - a firearm. At the moment, the philistines are not armed. Even in the countries where they are allowed to own a firearm, the average citizen still cannot use it, because it will be his fault, because self-defense is punishable. Of course, there are differences: in Russia it is absolutely punishable (almost all of those who tried to defend themselves went to jail), while in America Castle Doctrine (inflicting death on a person who illegally entered a home can be justified by a court as a permissible measure of necessary defense) and other healthy principles are still in force. Moreover, some countries are adopting them even now (for example, the same Castle Doctrine was adopted in Italy in 2005). But the general trend is quite clear: the scope of legal use of weapons is gradually narrowing and shrinking. In the end, its use against people will be made impossible at all.
Notice: this is the exact formulation. I did not say that all weapons would be "taken away" and "banned". That is, this option is also possible, but it is not the only one available. It will be quite enough for the authorities that you will not be able to shoot a representative of the authorities with your pistol. Or you can strengthen the demand - any person at all. For this purpose, it would suffice to equip the weapon with a special chip which will make it possible to shoot only after a permission from the police. Which will be issued only if you shoot at the indoor range, at beer cans. Still, it is possible to complicate the task further and equip the pistol with electronic recognition which will allow shooting at cats and crows (only wild - domestic ones will have a built-in blocking chip). Any silhouette at least remotely resembling a human one will trigger a blocking. Because it's no good for a petty commoner to shoot at people. Of course, the criminals will have "illegal guns", coming in mysterious ways. Or simply - a few people with sticks and knives, against which, as in the twelfth century, there will be exactly no recourse again. A commoner must be naked, pitiful, shivering and defenseless in front of any muscular scoundrel, and the gun is not good in that it equalizes the chances... And, of course, the police will become a superpower from outer space, just because they will have the right to shoot. And if they also will be enhanced with all kinds of modern gizmos, then the difference in strength between the commoner and their graces will become akin to the difference between a cockroach and Jupiter.
The same can be said, for example, about free time. If the commoner used it, he could think or invent something harmful. The chance is admittedly tiny, but it exists. So, for example, the working day is not reduced, but there are lots of activities that you can - and want! - to indulge in after-hours: from watching TV series to travelling ("it's necessary to see everything").
However, all this is obvious. I would like to talk about how the average person will be deprived of the last dangerous resource that is still in his hands - namely, money.
Indeed. Money is a very dangerous thing. With money, you can buy everything, including any serious possessions. For example, you can buy good steel, a diamond drill machine, and something on top of that. And you can make a primitive yet working firearm. In the hyperinformative era, you may get the blueprints of a peashooter ... And then, with this thing, a man will shoot at the godlike punisher-polizei. Or at a respectable, esteemed black ripper who has become used to killing people "as much as needed", because he is a black Muslim and has a gun (of course, without a chip), and white people do not even have a knife, only soft chubby legs and arms. Or - a dearest child of an important European official, who adopted laws under which all of the above became possible. By the way, one guy did it, his name was Breivik. He, truth be told, legally bought a ready-made weapon. But he could have made it himself too.
It seems that the easiest solution is to ban all dangerous things. Weapons, machine tools, explosive components, etc. But here is the trouble: there are more and more things in the world, and it is not clear which of them are safe and which are not. The nomenclature is too big, you can't keep track of everything. Besides, explosives and poisonous substances are only a small part of dangerous things. For example, computer programs - don't they come in all kinds? and who knows all they can do? And you can buy them for money, too. Well, that's it. Money - real money for which you can buy everything - should be taken from the commoner. In toto. And he should be given something else, simpler. Toy money with which he can only buy safe things, toys, and a little pleasure.
How will it be done? This is what we will talk about.
The first thing is not to give the little people money to save. Now, in the West, if you have a decent salary and live frugally, you can amass - by the end of your life, but still - a rather significant sum. And leave it to children, and they may already come up with something improper. It is even worse if the money goes not to your children, but, say, to friends or like-minded people. A commoner cannot have posthumous agency, no. He should not be able to bequeath his belongings to anyone. For it is not known what they will do.
Therefore, roughly at the end of XIX century a systematic war against the inheritance of property and wealth has been declared. The chosen method was simple - prohibitively high taxes on inheritance. To assess the level: the inheritance tax was introduced for the first time in history in Ancient Rome, by Augustus, it was 5% and was spent on the pension of soldiers. In modern France, the inheritance tax is 20 percent for direct line heirs and up to an insane 60 percent for those who are farther away or receive an inheritance by will (and this together with the fact that real estate, for example, is valuated at market value). In Japan, inheritance tax is also very high - 50% for large sums (and it was higher, but had to be rolled back). In America, the procedures are similar. In all other Western countries, the inheritance tax is comparable - from ten to twenty percent. Of course, there are certain liberties: small sums are not taxed yet. Some countries exist where there is no inheritance tax, but there are fewer and fewer of them (for example, recently the tax was introduced in Malaysia, despite many years of resistance from the rich Malay clans).
Of course, the hoi polloi resist the looting as much as they can. They are caught and punished. At the same time, they are constantly encouraged to 'surrender currency' to exceedingly numerous 'charitable organizations and foundations'. In other words, they give the profit to those who find a safe use for money. From this point of view, by the way, it does not matter whether the money will be spent to help starving black people, to save a rare species of bedbugs or simply to enrich state-approved parasites. What is important is that the money is neutralized.
It should be said that the point of the project is not particularly hidden. In the literature of the late XIX - early XX century (coming out from under the pen of moderate socialists) it says in black and white: inheritance tax is the way to "societal society". In which individuals that are too rich, and too free for this reason, are absent as a class.
Speaking of which. From a certain point in Western mass culture the universal villain figure has become a super-rich man with ideas. In other words, an independently thinking individual who has enough means to carry out his projects. Of course, some nasty thing always comes to his mind - to destroy mankind or something like that. For example, the famous James Bond throughout the whole series fights not so much with the "Reds" but exactly with such bad guys. And this in a society that calls itself "capitalist". In fact, this is a primitive setting of the commoner on the owner of capital: "money is bad, big money makes people foolish and prone to do nasty things". Of course, the apologia of poverty and squalor, such as in the USSR, is also not welcome - because a human is a dangerous thing too, and a poor human is easily bribed with very little money... But the "uncontrolled rich man" is nasty, doodoo.
That's regarding inheritance. As for the lifetime savings, there's a number of ways to eat them up. From the usual inflation to the organization of life such that a person gets into debt from the very beginning and then spends the rest of his life paying. All of this is described in the relevant literature in sufficient detail, let's not dwell on it.
Still. As long as real money remains in their hands, people can buy real things with it. So it is better to just take the money from people at all. Dollars are not children's toys.
How? Well, just like this.
We already got used - in Russia too - to such a small but pleasant little thing as bonus points, loyalty card crediting and other such niceties. Should you come to the tavern seven times, you will get a mug of free beer, a cookie or a discount from the main account on the eighth. These little toy moneys, at this point they are mainly utilized to goad the client into spending the real money.
However, it depends on how you look at it. All these "points", if properly leveraged, can become promising financial (and not only financial) instruments that work well at the micro level.
For now, issuance of all these "discount instruments" is restricted to stores and restaurants, and the cards are tightly tied to the buyer. They cannot be sold or given away. But this is a technical issue, by and large. So is the question of exchanging points for money, for example. Moreover, there are no fundamental restrictions on producing derivatives based on this system - say, using the currency basket mechanisms. Consider: someone is issuing (why and by what right - let's omit these details for now) some conditional unit of exchange the "cost" of which is defined as 0.5 points of a card of some central Moscow store, plus 0.3 discount points of a popular restaurant chain, plus 0.2 points of a chain of women's clothing and perfume. It should be noted that money – roubles or dollars – is out of the question, only points. This conventional unit is called, say, "Sale". Sale is exchanged at trades – arranged as exchange currency trades – for other points, and (for the time being) is bought for money. And it is profitable: by buying Sales, you can buy more goods and services than for money directly. By three percent, not more - but they won't hurt, right?
Now imagine that you are offered to cover part of the price with Sales, on favorable terms. You save five percent, or even whole ten percent. However, you will be able to shop only there where Sales are accepted. But you it's not like you need anything else. You need to eat, get dressed, go to the cinema... you can get all this for Sales. And real money will be needed to pay taxes and for communal housing.
Why such difficulties? Little by little, one travels far. Dangerous toys - dollars, rubles, euros - should be taken away from people gradually, and in such a manner that they themselves give them up. In the end, the toy "Sales" will actually cover the basic needs of an ordinary citizen, and even ten percent above that. Do you insist on getting paid in real money? You will not be refused. But there will be rumors that you are saving money for something bad. Maybe for drugs? Or are you sending it to terrorists? Your account might begin to attract interest. And you personally, too. No, no, no, if you have nothing illegal, no one will bother you. Why do you need money anyway? Oh, you're saving for a diamond ring for your loved one? Well, we didn't foresee that, so we'll suggest to the jewelers that they put special points on diamonds and include it in the Sale basket.
Here's what's important about this. You will always be able to earn Sales not with work, but with demonstrating good behavior - like now. That is: if you constantly go to the same food joint, you will be awarded Sales. If you buy new products of your favorite company, the same happens. And so on.
Further, the component I wrote about in the previous article will be added to the points: Sales for good behavior in the most direct sense of the word. You crossed the street on green, following all the rules - Sale. For each minute of waiting - additional Sale (a CCTV installed on the traffic light and your cell phone connected to a chip in the same traffic light will detect it). Ran across the street - no, you will not be penalized in any manner, but the next fifty good things you will be doing for free. We hope that you had a good reason to be in such a hurry and it was worth it ... And so on and so forth.
It is very important that Sales will be paid for good behavior. Because after a while, the compensation of what used to be called labor, too, will be made on the same principle.
No, real work will be paid for with real money. But by that time, five or six percent of the population will have a real job to do real work. The rest of the population will be engaged in harmless, but also not exactly useful nonsense, the essence and meaning of which they themselves will not understand. But going to the office, arriving on time, sitting at the computer during the time specified in the contract - all this, specifically, will be paid for. And again, not rewarded as labor but as good, correct, socially useful behavior. Even the choice of tea instead of coffee (tea is more healthy) will be rewarded with a Sale or two.
After a while, people will get used to living in a world of toy money. Yes, they will not be able to buy weapons, powerful drugs (only vitamins and dietary supplements) or at least a hammer with nails. But all of this is so rarely needed. Instead, it would be better to live with Sales in the toy world of a well-fed city sluggard. By the way, Sales will be "globalized" from the inception - because the trade networks that emit them are global. That is, national currencies will remain, there will be usual problems with the exchange rates (those will be amplified, even), but Sales will be accepted everywhere where there is "McDonald's", "Zara" and other such places. And, of course, electronic services and social networks. Because "Facebook" will also be a source of Sales - it will award them for posts, comments and even likes, according to very tricky formulas that users will not understand. But their activity in networks will bring them income - small, but pleasant. And suspensions and other punishments for wrong words and thoughts - it will hit them in their pocket. And it will be done not by a totalitarian state, but by a private business entitled to its rights.
I could develop this topic further, but "that's enough for a smart man", and I am already too talkative. So I'll simply remind you: it's just a forecast, that is, an attempt to outline one of the approaches to solving the problem of taking away from people everything that can prevent the Ones Who Order from ruling forever. Maybe they will find another solution, a more interesting one. Or maybe they will do it very roughly.
But they will be tackling the problem - necessarily.

2020.08.19 17:27 mickhagen Crypto Banking Wars: Can BlockFi & Celsius Disrupt Banking?

Crypto Banking Wars: Can BlockFi & Celsius Disrupt Banking?
These crypto lending & borrowing services found early traction. Are they capable of bundling more financial services and winning the broader consumer finance market?
https://reddit.com/link/icps9l/video/98kl1y596zh51/player
This is the third part of Crypto Banking Wars — a new series that examines what crypto-native company is most likely to become the bank of the future. Who is best positioned to reach mainstream adoption in consumer finance?
While crypto allows the world to get rid of banks, a bank will still very much be necessary for this very powerful technology to reach the masses. As we laid out in our previous series, Crypto-Powered, we believe a crypto-native company will ultimately become the bank of the future. We’re confident Genesis Block will have a seat at that table, but we aren’t the only game in town.
In the first post of this series, we did an analysis of big crypto exchanges like Coinbase & Binance. In our second episode, we looked at the world of non-custodial wallets.
Today we’re analyzing crypto lending & borrowing services. The Earn and Borrow use-case covers a lot of what traditional banks deliver today. This category of companies is a threat worth analyzing. As we look at this market, we’ll mostly be focused on custodial, centralized products like BlockFi, Nexo, and Celsius.
Many of these companies found early traction among crypto users. Are they capable of bundling more financial services and winning the broader consumer finance market? Let’s find out.

Institutional Borrowers

Because speculation and trading remains one of the most popular use-cases of crypto, a new crypto sub-industry around credit has emerged. Much of the borrowing demand has been driven by institutional needs.
For example, a Bitcoin mining company might need to borrow fiat to pay for operational costs (salaries, electricity). Or a crypto company might need to borrow USD to pay for engineering salaries. Or a crypto hedge fund needs to borrow for leverage or to take a specific market position. While all of these companies have sufficient crypto to cover the costs, they might not want to sell it — either for tax or speculative reasons (they may believe these crypto assets will appreciate, as with most in the industry).
Instead of selling their crypto, these companies can use their crypto as collateral for loans. For example, they can provide $1.5M in Bitcoin as collateral, and borrow $1M. Given the collateralization happening, the underwriting process becomes straightforward. Companies all around the world can participate — language and cultural barriers are removed.

The leader (and one of our partners) in this space is Genesis Capital. While they are always the counterparty for both lenders and borrowers, they are effectively a broker. They are at the center of the institutional crypto lending & borrowing markets. Their total active loans as of March 2020 was $649M. That number shot up to $1.42B in active loans as of June 2020. The growth of this entire market segment is impressive and it’s what is driving this opportunity for consumers downstream.

Consumer Products

While most of the borrowing demand comes from institutional players, there is a growing desire from consumers to participate on the lend/supply side of the market. Crypto consumers would love to be able to deposit their assets with a service and watch it grow. Why let crypto assets sit on an exchange or in cold storage when it can be earning interest?
A number of consumer-facing products have emerged in the last few years to make this happen. While they also allow users to borrow (always with collateral), most of the consumer attraction is around growing their crypto, even while they sleep. Earning interest. These products usually partner with institutional players like Genesis Capital to match the deposits with borrowing demand. And it’s exactly part of our strategy as well, beyond leveraging DeFi (decentralized finance protocols).
A few of the most popular consumer services in this category include BlockFi, Nexo, and Celsius.

BlockFi

BlockFi (Crunchbase) is the leader in this category (at least in the West). They are well-capitalized. In August 2019, they raised $18.3M in their Series A. In Feb 2020, they raised $30M in their Series B. In that same time period, they went from $250M in assets under management to $650M. In a recent blog post, they announced that they saw a 100% revenue increase in Q2 and that they were on track to do $50M in revenue this year. Their growth is impressive.
BlockFi did not do an ICO, unlike Celsius, Nexo, Salt, and Cred. BlockFi has a lot of institutional backing so it is perceived as the most reputable in the space. BlockFi started with borrowing — allowing users to leverage their crypto as collateral and taking out a loan against it. They later got into Earning — allowing users to deposit assets and earn interest on it. They recently expanded their service to “exchange” functionality and say they are coming out with a credit card later this year.

Security Woes
It’s incredible that BlockFi has been able to see such strong growth despite their numerous product and security woes. A few months ago, their systems were compromised. A hacker was able to access confidential data, such as names, dates of birth, postal addresses, and activity histories. While no funds were lost, this was a massive embarrassment and caused reputational damage.

https://preview.redd.it/lwmxbz5l6zh51.png?width=606&format=png&auto=webp&s=ebd8e6e5c31c56da055824254b35b218b49f80e0
Unrelated to that massive security breach and earlier in the year, a user discovered a major bug that allowed him to send the same funds to himself over and over again, ultimately accumulating more than a million dollars in his BlockFi account. BlockFi fortunately caught him just before withdrawal.
Poor Product Execution
Beyond their poor security — which they are now trying to get serious about — their products are notoriously buggy and hard-to-use. I borrowed from them a year ago and used their interest account product until very recently. I have first-hand experience of how painful it is. But don’t take my word for it… here are just a few tweets from customers just recently.

https://preview.redd.it/wcqu3icn6zh51.png?width=1055&format=png&auto=webp&s=870e2f06a6ec377a87e5d6d1f24579a901de66b5
For a while, their interest-earning product had a completely different authentication system than their loan product (users had two sets of usernames/passwords). Many people have had issues with withdrawals. The app is constantly logging people out, blank screens, ugly error messages. Emails with verification codes are sometimes delayed by hours (or days). I do wonder if their entire app has been outsourced. The sloppiness shines through.
Not only is their product buggy and UX confusing, but their branding & design is quite weak. To the left is a t-shirt they once sent me. It looks like they just found a bunch of quirky fonts, added their name, and slapped it on a t-shirt.

https://preview.redd.it/mi6yeppp6zh51.png?width=600&format=png&auto=webp&s=fd4cd8201ad0d5bc667498096388377895b72953
Culture
To the innocent bystander, many of these issues seem totally fixable. They could hire an amazing design agency to completely revamp their product or brand. They could hire a mercenary group of engineers to fix their bugs, etc. While it could stop the bleeding for a time, it may not solve the underlying issues. Years of sloppy product execution represents something much more destructive. It represents a top-down mentality that shipping anything other than excellence is okay: product experience doesn’t matter; design doesn’t matter; craftsmanship doesn’t matter; strong execution doesn’t matter; precision doesn’t matter. That’s very different from our culture at Genesis Block.
This cancerous mentality rarely stays contained within product & engineering — this leaks to all parts of the organization. No design agency or consulting firm will fix some of the pernicious values of a company’s soul. These are deeper issues that only leadership can course-correct.
If BlockFi’s sloppiness were due to constant experimentation, iteration, shipping, or some “move fast and break things” hacker culture… like Binance… I would probably cut them more slack. But there is zero evidence of that. “Move fast and break things” is always scary when dealing with financial products. But in BlockFi’s case, when it’s more like “move slow and break things,” they are really playing with fire. Next time a massive security breach occurs, like what happened earlier this year, they may not be so lucky.
Institutional Focus
Based on who is on their team, their poor product execution shouldn’t be a surprise. Their team comes mostly from Wall Street, not the blockchain community (where our roots are). Most of BlockFi’s blockchain/crypto integration is very superficial. They take crypto assets as deposits, but they aren’t leveraging any of the exciting, low-level DeFi protocols like we are.
While their Wall Street heritage isn’t doing them any favors on the product/tech side, it’s served them very well on winning institutional clients. This is perhaps their greatest strength. BlockFi has a strong institutional business. They recently brought on Three Arrows Capital as a strategic investor — a crypto hedge fund who does a lot of borrowing. In that announcement, BlockFi’s founder said that bringing them on “aligns well with our focus on international expansion of our institutional services offering.” They also recently brought someone on who will lead business development in Asia among institutional clients.
BlockFi Wrap Up
There are certainly BlockFi features that overlap with Genesis Block’s offering. It’s possible that they are angling to become the bank of the future. However, they simply have not proven they are capable of designing, building, and launching world-class consumer products. They’ve constantly had issues around security and poor product execution. Their company account and their founder’s account seem to only tweet about Bitcoin. I don’t think they understand, appreciate, or value the power of DeFi. It’s unlikely they’ll be leveraging it any time soon. All of these reasons are why I don’t see them as a serious threat to Genesis Block.
However, because of their strong institutional offering, I hope that Genesis Block will ultimately have a very collaborative and productive partnership with them. Assuming they figure out their security woes, we could park some of our funds with BlockFi (just as we will with Genesis Capital and others). I think what’s likely to happen is that we’ll corner the consumer market and we’ll work closely with BlockFi on the institutional side.
I’ve been hard on BlockFi because I care. I think they have a great opportunity at helping elevate the entire industry in a positive way. But they have a lot of issues they need to work through. I really don’t want to see users lose millions of dollars in a security breach. It could set back the entire industry. But if they do things well… a rising tide lifts all boats.

Honorable Mentions

Celsius (ICO Drops) raised $50M in an ICO, and is led by serial entrepreneur Alex Mashinsky. I’ve met him, he’s a nice guy. Similar to Binance, their biggest Achilles heel could be their own token. There are also a lot of unanswered questions about where their deposits go. They don’t have a record of great transparency. They recently did a public crowdraise which is a little odd given their large ICO as well as their supposed $1B in deposits. Are they running out of money, as some suggest? Unclear. One of their biggest blindspots right now is that Mashinsky does not understand the power of DeFi. He is frequently openly criticizing it.
Nexo (ICO Drops) is another similar service. They are European-based, trying to launch their own card (though they’ve been saying this forever and they still haven’t shipped it), and have a history in the payments/fintech space. Because they haven’t penetrated the US — which is a much harder regulatory nut to crack — they are unlikely to be as competitive as BlockFi. There were also allegations that Nexo was spreading FUD about Chainlink while simultaneously partnering with them. Did Nexo take out a short position and start spreading rumors? Never a dull moment in crypto.
Other players in the lending & borrowing space include Unchained Capital, Cred (ICO Drops), and Salt (ICO Drops).

Wrap Up

While many companies in this category seem to be slowly adding more financial services, I don’t believe any of them are focused on the broader consumer market like we are. To use services like BlockFi, Nexo, or Celsius, users need to be onboarded and educated on how crypto works. At Genesis Block, we don’t believe that’s the winning approach. We think blockchain complexity should be abstracted away from the end-user. We did an entire series about this, Spreading Crypto.
For many of these services, there is additional friction due to ICO tokens that are forcefully integrated into the product (see NEXO token or CEL Token). None of these services have true banking functionality or integration with traditional finance —for example, easy offramp or spending methods like debit cards. None of them are taking DeFi seriously — they are leveraging crypto for only the asset class, not the underlying technology around financial protocols.
So are these companies potential competitors to Genesis Block? For the crypto crowd, yes. For the mass market, no. None of these companies are capable of reaching the billions of people around the world that we hope to reach at Genesis Block.

2020.08.06 08:06 ami_nil1987 Cash & Digital Currency in China’s Near Future?

Hot on the heels of China unveiling upgraded banknotes in late August, recent announcements by the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) suggest it is about to become the first country in the world to issue a central bank digital currency. The new digital currency would serve as legal tender or sovereign currency, initially coexisting alongside its cash equivalent (the renminbi yuan) but eventually replacing banknotes and coins. Intended for domestic use to begin with, the digital currency would enable direct and person-to-person retail payments, possibly using a digital wallet app for smartphone. The currency will be backed by central bank reserves, thereby reducing risk to users, much like cash.
Why the hurry?
Coming just weeks after Facebook’s announcement about Libra coin, China’s timing is no coincidence and follows detailed research by the PBOC over the past five years. While several other countries have been actively researching CBDC, it is Libra’s arrival on the scene that has prompted a more urgent response from central banks. Dutch bank, ING’s, Head Economist has predicted that digital currencies will be developed within the next 2-3 years.
Comments by Mu Changchun, Deputy Director of China’s central bank’s payments department suggest that China’s monetary sovereignty and legal currency status are under threat from Facebook’s proposals. And although electronic payments are already ubiquitous in China via popular mobile payment apps run by private companies such as Tencent and Alibaba, a central bank-supported system could offer more long-term reassurance for consumers. Nevertheless, there is no official launch date for China’s digital currency, while Libra was originally slated to debut in 2020.
Benefits of CBDC, but for whom?
CBDC has been touted by economists as an effective way to manage monetary policy, especially in times of economic downturn, and as a mechanism to reduce tax evasion. In China’s case, some observers have hinted that a move towards a digital currency could be used as a vehicle to increase its global reach by internationalising the national currency, though this would presumably spark a regulatory backlash similar to the one facing Libra coin. Concerns also remain about accessibility to digital currency and the potential risks for individual financial privacy, compared to decentralised cryptocurrencies or, for that matter, cash, both of which offer greater levels of anonymity.

2020.07.25 19:40 trblrvng The Moral Ambiguity of Fan Fiction (and why this could be it for me as a fanfic writer)

Just want to share something I wrote on my AFF. Let me know what you think.
>>>
I am just going to ramble. So pardon me if you find this such an unorganized piece. Before I begin, I'd like to say that I am in no way an expert of philosophy. I am just someone who's gotten into introspecting about my responsibility as a fan and as a writer.
I was scrolling through Reddit last night and I don't know how I come across a post about fanfiction. Then I started looking up this very specific term: "The Ethics of Fan Fiction" on Google (of course). Here are some articles that really got me thinking.
  1. Is fan fiction ethical? i-D
  2. The ethics of fan fiction Deviantart
  3. The dubious ethics of real-person fanfiction Medium
After reading those article, it really got me thinking what my stand is in this matter. And I am doing it by mapping out my journey. I would like to share my introspection process with you.
Why did I start writing fanfiction?
The audience and instant feedback. Since I was in 6th grade, I have been writing fiction. I wrote mostly children's fiction and storybooks, poems, and proses that get published in the school newspaper. When I was in high school, I graduated to writing novels for self-pleasure. They're usually inspired by books I read and series I watch. Nothing too serious. Just some teen fun. Then, when I was in college, a friend introduced me to K-Pop. I didn't know about fanfiction at first until one of my friends sent me a link to this DaraGon video on YouTube. It was a simple shipping video and that led me to AFF. I read a few DaraGon fanfics and as a writer myself, I was so amazed at the instant gratification, feedback, and interaction you get in here. I was even more amazed when I started writing about my then-ult, BIGBANG and got so many praises from the community.
How did I feel writing fan fiction for the first time?
Oh, it was thrilling! I loved updating and hearing from the subscribers. I've already deleted the fic but it gained a bit of attention and I was so thankful for that. I, however, didn't look or think much into it. I just loved writing for fans and as a fan, I loved reading fanfics. I, too, was young. I was only 16! I didn't think of the moral or ethical consequences of what I was doing.
More than 7/8 years later, what made me think twice?
I guess it's because I am growing and I am learning more about the world as a living, breathing existing human being. For a while, too, I was interested in philosophy. I looked into my own virtues and values. What keeps me up at night? What puts me to good rest? What drives me? What stops me? I've had some kind of existential crisis. That wasn't easy to admit but hey, I am telling you now.
So far, through this self-discovery journey, I have learned a few things about myself: I don't have a strong opinion of my own (which is bad) so I easily get influenced and swayed by really good arguments with a factual and scientific basis, but I hate it when I or the people I care for are experiencing injustice.
So to speak, socially and politically, I was firm about the way I perceive justice and understand existence. I like scientific bases. I like theses. I like learning about the law and I do recognize it. I love learning about the psychology of things, events, and phenomena. I just am like this. So if you argue with me about how 60% of idols hate shipping (with actual data), I will ultimately be against it even if I did it early in my days as a fan.
(((Here are a few facts about me that you may want to link with this kind of personality: I am an INFJ; my sun is in Libra while my Moon, Mercury, and Venus are in Virgo. My Mars is in Leo, my Jupiter in Capricorn, Saturn in Aries, Uranus in Aquarius, Neptune in Capricorn, Pluto in Sagittarius and Lilith in Leo. I don't know why I just told you about my placements but it could help you judge me.)))
Anyway, while I am on this journey, I started rethinking my way of life. I am now thinking of dabbling into minimalism. I am going through a phase of PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). Careerwise, I'm also having second thoughts and would want to pursue a whole different path after 4 years in the workforce building a kickass portfolio. Now, I am in that part where I rethink my hobbies. Do these things benefit me? Do these things help me grow as a person? Does this influence me to be a good person? And the most important question I asked myself, are these aligned with my moral philosophy and my quest for ethical responsibility?
Quick answer: yes, yes, yes, and no.
From here on out, I am going to focus only on my hobby of writing fan fiction and NOT on other hobbies I have like gaming and sketching and whatever. Just writing fan fiction.
Why 'yes'?
Yes, these things benefit me. In the long run, writing about fan fiction has helped me develop my writing skills. It has completely changed the way I look at stories. If you read my works from when I was in high school, you could compare it to a very bad Netflix series. I wrote a lot of cliche stories with very, very ambiguous character development and structure overall. But now, as I rewrite my stories, I realize how much I have improved since. I am now able to come up with stories that -- while some may argue -- have already been told but on a different perspective. If you look at any fictional story today, it's impossible not to find a trope that you've already encountered before. Of course, you would. You'd see all these over and over but it's always up to the writer to make it sound new and fresh and out of this world, if possible. It's the writer's job to make it sound so different from other stories that they wouldn't think of referring to an index of tropes to pinpoint which ones apply to the story. I could say that writing fanfics for years helped me understand this and I am glad I did dabble into fanfic writing.
Yes, it helped me grow as a person. Yes, it influenced me to be a good person. Writing a story about other people and being sensitive about the way you represent a certain person on your stories, especially if they're real, living human beings, would make you a better person in general. You wouldn't want to paint someone in a bad light because you hate an idol, right? If you do, get out of here and get some help. Here's an example to help you understand the growth I have been through: I could easily write Chen as a player casanova but I refuse to now. Why? Because he's a (possibly) married man with a child of his own. I can't see him any other way. It's my responsibility as a writer to understand that this new Chen should be represented properly in my stories. So, if you see my story, The Perfect Pour, you'll see him as a married policeman with a child. That's it. Another example is when I deleted my BIGBANG fics. I do believe in innocent until proven guilty but if and only if the ambiguity of the case presents itself throughout its very public run. I am totally against what SR did and I do believe he did it BUT if everyone around him starts to admit and pull him with them to the dive off a cliff, then that says something right? I don't want to dive deeper into this but I just believe that having those fics up meant support for a group that enabled such actions. If I can take them down, even if it meant losing hundreds and hundreds of readers, I would.
Why 'no'?
Now that hardest part and the very reason I am writing this right now: no, writing fan fiction is not aligned with my moral philosophy and doesn't help me in my quest for ethical responsibility. I am not a complicated person; I have a simple moral philosophy: to be good to others but be better to myself. There's really no way of explaining this further. It is what it is. What you see is what you get. How about my quest for ethical responsibility? I just want to be a law-abiding citizen with no criminal record.
Now, I know what you're thinking: what does this have to do about writing fan fiction? It's just K-Pop, it's not that deep. The thing is, this is how we see it. For the longest time, I lived with a moral compass that told me this:
As along as idols don't know we're writing about them, we're okay! We can keep doing what we do. It doesn't matter if they know we write about them. I am sure they do. So, what about it? They don't actually read it. Right? So, it doesn't make us bad if they don't know! Out of sight, out of mind.
But let me ask you this: what do you think "knowing" means to these idols? When we say, "companies push the queerbaiting agenda to us to make us ship, to make us write, to keep a steady fanbase and so and so fort". What does it actually mean to the people concerned? Oh, yes, I am sure they know what we write about them but they also know that it could get sexual, brutal, and completely inappropriate one way or another. They know.
But now that I'm learning more about myself, I see this:
They are human beings with lives of their own but it's more often than not, out of their control. We the fans control them. The companies control them. The industry standards control them. So, if personal relationships they make are invaded with our stories, what does that make us? Just another pawn in the game. Just another key on the remote control. We're just another reason these idols don't live lives of their own.
I do know that these fanfics are just stories. I do know what's real from what isn't. Trust me, I am sane in that way. That's why I guess, I've lasted for so long! Hell, my ult ship is KaiSoo. Kai has been to two (2) public relationships. I still shipped them hard. I did stop writing when he was officially dating and only continued when the relationships fell through. Like, right now, I am writing a KaiSoo fanfic because none of them is in a public relationship. I am comfortable with that.
So, am I leaving? Will I stop writing RPF?
No. I actually won't stop. Not like this. While I have a responsibility as a human being, I will keep on writing because I also have a responsibility to my readers. People have already read my work and they're mostly unfinished. I am going to finish them all and navigate from there. I probably won't write another KaiSoo fan fiction. I probably won't write another pairing fan fiction to be published online. But I will continue to write about great friendships made and probably more OC fanfics.
Here's something I picked from the i-D article I linked above:
“Fantasising about someone without their consent is a private act and I don’t see ethical issues if you reserve your fantasy for yourself,” explains sex psychologist Jess O’Reilly, PhD, host of Drive Him/Her Wild video series. O’Reilly asks fan fiction writers to consider the the outcomes of their online narrations – not just any legal repercussions, but the ethical ones. “How might is make someone feel? How would their parents, partner(s), kids or friends feel about reading it? How would they feel if their friends and family read your work?” She says. “How would you feel if someone published a similar story about you, your child, your partner, your best friend, your sibling or someone else you love? I’m less concerned with the legal consequences and more concerned with the human ones.” Considering how emphatic fandoms and fan fiction readers can be, there is also a sense of community found in sharing these stories and others finding enjoyment in your fantasies. In doing so publicly, however, the risk remains that this fiction finds its way into damaging real people’s actual relationships, sex and sexuality. As with our dirtiest dreams and desires, fetishes and fantasies, it seems fan fiction really needs to remain in the private, fictional realm rather than the public eye.
I am not a perfect person. I have so many flaws and am still exploring myself and my purpose in life. This thinking could change. I can sound so deep now and forget I ever said these tomorrow. But if I can, as much as possible, be a good person, then I will try my best to be it.
I am in no way influencing all of you to do the same. I just wanted to vent and share my journey.

2020.05.22 04:16 MyCoinStory ALTCOIN VS BITCOIN: BATTLE FOR DOMINANCE AFTER THE HALVING

ALTCOIN VS BITCOIN: BATTLE FOR DOMINANCE AFTER THE HALVING
Before we begin, let us hop onto the same page and understand what bitcoin dominance is.

WHAT IS BITCOIN DOMINANCE?

Bitcoin Dominance is simply the market share of bitcoin in the cryptocurrency market determined by market capitalization(Circulating Supply x Price). Bitcoin is by far the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization and a top contributor in trading volume.
Bitcoin Dominance ratio can be derived from dividing market cap of bitcoin over the sum of the cryptocurrency market cap as a whole. As the dominance represents a ratio of market share, bitcoin dominance is often affected by the performance of altcoins. Therefore, as shown in figure 1 below, the Bitcoin Dominance dropped dramatically at the time ICOs gained popularity where Ethereum almost overtook Bitcoin in market cap.

Figure 1 - Source: coinmarketcap.com

BTC HALVING - AFFECT ON DOMINANCE

As market capitalization is calculated by the circulating supply and price, it is logical to assume that the dominance will gradually fall over time as the rate bitcoin issuance has dropped by half.
However, as shown in figure 2, the Bitcoin Dominance is still maintaining its stance at approximately 67~68%. It is in great interest by many cryptocurrency enthusiasts to see where the dominance will be heading. As the supply rate has dropped, the only way the dominance can be maintained is through the increase in bitcoin price.

Figure 2 - Source: coinmarketcap.com
As of May 11, the date of the 3rd halving, the price of bitcoin has continuously demonstrated an upward trend which was a key factor in maintaining the dominance level.

Figure 3 - Source: coinmarketcap.com
Leading up to the halving, the Bitcoin tweet dominance (shown in Figure 4) also hit its highs since the 2017 bull-run.
Figure 4 - Source: The Tie

ALTCOIN PERFORMANCE

As mentioned above, another factor to consider is the Altcoin performance or the so called "alt-season". Although Bitcoin strongly stands as the main crypto asset across the world, there are many altcoin fans that are waiting for the "alt-season" to come. Now with a major event for Bitcoin out of the way, what influence will this have in the altcoin market?
Furthermore, many institutions and governments are also leveraging altcoin protocols to issue their own cryptocurrencies to add efficiency and innovation to existing systems. These initiatives will bring greater reach to the general public, meaning more demand. Shown in figure 5, over the past month, the so called whales have been discovered stacking up with several key altcoins in their wallets.

Figure 5 - Source: Santiment
Below are some upcoming events for Altcoins and also institutional use cases
Altcoin Events
  • Ethereum 2.0
  • Theta Mainnet
  • Zilliqa - Zilon v2.0 Release
  • Kyber Network - KyberDAO Launch
Institutional Use Cases
  • Reddit - Ethereum Based Cryptocurrency Engagement Reward
  • Visa - Files many patents on Cryptocurrency
  • Libra - Singapore State Investor Temasek Joins Libra
Now that the halving is over yet ongoing, uncertainty still remains on how the cryptocurrency space (including dominance) will be reshaped. Will we see another alt-season like the one back in 2017? or is everyone keeping their bitcoins in their pockets?
Either way, these uncertainties can be traded on derivatives exchanges like MyCoinStory.com where traders can go long or short depending on which way they think the prices will move.

2020.04.18 23:07 DiabloGraves The Doki-Tuber List

Hey DDLC modders and mod fans. This is just a little thread I keep updated to track YouTubers who help the community by showcasing mods in their videos. I'll be aiming to update this list once a week, usually on Saturday. A couple of notes before we get started:
Weeding Out Bad Potatoes: Unfortunately I can't watch every video myself. My apologies if you encounter someone behaving badly; let me know and I'll review the problem to see if they need to be removed from the list.
Checking For New Eyes: I try to add new channels when I find them, but if you know of a channel that's not on the list, feel free to suggest it in the comments below. Currently, the table lists channels with at least three different mods played or reviewed from the Mod List on this subreddit; if you know of a channel that's still working towards that goal, post a comment down below so I can keep an eye on them for future updates.
09-19-2020 Update: Blue Skies continues its run of popularity this week. Also though, let's welcome back BronzeBrawn and Khairul Gdragon, who return after extended hiatus. New release Storm also has a couple of new LPs started this week! The bolded listings under Most Recent let you know what's been updated in the past week.

2020.04.18 05:20 3375000000 Precession of the Equinoxes and the Zodiac Time Cycles

This post contains my current view as to how the Zodiac Time cycles work. Anything stated should not be taken definitively but is simply me laying out a theory that may hold truth to it.

Overview

July 26, 2020 is the date of "The Harvest", the completion of a 25831 year cycle known as the precession of the equinoxes. This date is also the official start date of the Age of Aquarius.
The ages are as follows:
Using exact measurements:

Ways in which 7/26/2020 is encoded into Pi

  • 262 first appears in Pi at the end of 2039 digits
  • 262 days after 12/26/2014 is the start of a new Hebrew Civil Year. 2039 days after 12/26/2014 is 7/26/2020
  • 333 first appears in Pi at the end of 1700 digits
  • 7/26/2020 is the 333rd day of a period which begins 8/29/2019, and the 1700th day of a period which begins on 12/1/2015
  • 333 digits of Pi precede the first occurrence of 829 and 8292... In other words, 333 digits precede 8292
  • 7/26/2020 takes place 8292 days after 11/12/1997, and is the 333rd day of a period which starts on 8/29/2019
  • 1003 first appears in Pi at the end of 12294 digits
  • 7/26/2020 is the 1003rd day or middle day of a period which starts on 10/28/2017. You could also say that 7/26/2020 is 1003 days from 4/25/2023, the completion of the 1335 days
  • 7/26/2020 is 2294 days from 4/15/2014, total lunar eclipse/first Blood Moon of a tetrad, Passover date, the middle day of a 1189 day period
  • 2775 digits of Pi precede the second occurrence of 187 and the first occurrence of 1871
  • 7/26/2020 is the 2775th day of the 14th baktun and is also the 187th day of a 1189 day period which starts on 1/22/2020
  • 7/26/2020 is also the 1871st day of period which begins 6/13/2015 (13.0.2.9.4)
  • The second occurrence of 71 appears at the end of 243 digits of Pi directly next to the first occurrence of 2019. This represents how the 243rd birthday of America and the 71st birthday of Israel both take place in the same year, 2019.
  • 726 occurrence #4 appears in Pi with a "71" directly to its right
  • 726 occurrence #5 appears in Pi with a "243" directly to its right
  • 439 first appears in Pi directly next to 388
  • 5/14/2019 (71st birthday of Israel) -> 7/26/2020 = 439 days
  • 7/4/2019 (243rd birthday of America) -> 7/26/2020 = 388 days

Bizarre Observations

This article from earthsky is about the starting point of the Age of Aquarius and is titled "When does the Age of Aquarius begin?"
  • The value of the title is 304 which first occurs in Pi only 1 digit apart from the first occurrence of 1489 like so: 1489 0 304
  • As we just mentioned 7/26/2020 is the 1489th day of a period of time
The intro line for the article is "Astronomers and astrologers may agree that the Age of Aquarius starts when the vernal equinox point moves out of constellation Pisces and into Aquarius. But when will that be? There’s no definitive answer."
  • This line totals 2111, which is one of the 5 Greek words to have a value of 989: "415, 726, 1112, 2111, 3449"
Also:
  • The date on the article is 1/9/2019. If that is the 1st day of a period of time, 7/26/2020 is the 565th day, with 565 digits of Pi preceding the first occurrence of the number 1717
  • 565 digits of Pi sum to 2501
  • 7/26/2020 - 2501 days = 9/20/2013 (13.0.0.13.13)
Other articles to investigate:

Hidden Disclosure in Television

In the television show "Phineas and Ferb" the theme song always mentions them having a 104 day summer vacation.
This number is associated with the 2152 year cycles of the Zodiac.
Consider this sequential summing of digits in Pi:
104 digits of Pi sum to 492 ... 492 digits of Pi sum to 2184 ... 2184 digits of Pi sum to 10000
2184 is the number of days it takes to complete one degree of movement through a sign of the Zodiac. 104 first occurs in Pi like so: 486 104
This is significant as 486 digits of Pi sum to 2152, like the 2152 year cycle. Then, 486 + 104 = 590, which is the number of day you must add to 12/21/2012 to align yourself with the degrees of the precession:
  • 12/21/2012 + 590 days = 8/3/2014
  • 8/3/2014 + 2184 days = 7/26/2020
This is also special as 360 first appears in Pi directly next to the first occurrence of 726, and 360 occurs for the second time in Pi at the end of 360 digits directly next to 590.
11/12/1997 is the start of the 7920 days, and 2184 first appears in Pi at the end of 1740 digits. Adding 1740 days to 11/12/1997 aligns you with the degrees of the precessional cycle as 7/26/2020 takes place 8292 days after 11/12/1997. 8292 is 1740 + 2184 + 2184 + 2184
1740 + 2184 = 3924 and 3924 first appears in Pi at the end of 7473 digits. This is special as 7473 days after 11/12/1997 is 4/29/2018, the start of the 70 weeks of Daniel.
What I find to be really compelling is how the show contains 222 segments and 133 episodes:
  • 222 first occurs in Pi at the end of 1737 digits, intersecting the first occurrence 2184
  • 12/21/2012 + 1737 days = 9/23/2017 (77th day of the Tzolk'in and the Revelation 12 Sign)
  • 7/26/2020 is the 1038th day of a period starting on 9/23/2017 and 1038 appears in Pi like so: 14809 27777 1038
  • 133 first appears in Pi like so: 482 133 9 360 726
8/18/2002 (new degree, 1740 days after 11/12/1997) -> 8/17/2007 (First episode of Phineas and Ferb) = 1825 days
  • The sum of the divisors of 1825 is 2294
  • 1825 digits of Pi sum to 8293
  • 7/26/2020 is the 8293rd day of a period starting 11/12/1997, and is 2294 days from 4/15/2014, the middle day of a 1189 day period and the first blood moon of a tetrad.
6/12/2015 (last episode air date) -> 7/26/2020 = 1871 days
  • 2775 digits of Pi precede the first occurrence of the number 1871, and 7/26/2020 is the 2775th day of the 14th baktun. It is also the 187th day of a 1189 day period

Supporting Verses

I proposed that the start date of the current cycle of the precession of the equinoxes was 3/28/23812 BC. Here is the 23812th verse of the Bible:
Matthew 20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third day he shall rise again. Verse # = 23812 Words =17 Letters = 98 Total = 10425
This is the first verse to use the Greek word for crucify, which is G4717. It is the only word in the New Testament to have a root value of 1871. We just saw the number 1871 when studying the symbolism inserted in Phineas and Ferb. Not only could 7/26/2020 be seen as the 187th or 1871st day of a period, but 2775 digits of Pi precede 187/1871 and 7/26/2020 is the 2775th day of the 14th baktun.
This verse seems to be a confirmation that 7/26/2020 is indeed the completion of a cycle which began in 23812 BC.
California Penal Code section 187 defines murder. This seems to be connected to the word "crucify" and also to the concept of the Harvest on 7/26/2020.
  • The value of the word "Jesus" or "Lucifer" in English gematria is 74, and the 74th prime is 373
  • 7/17/2019 represents the day Jesus was crucified, and 7/20/2019, the completion of the 7920 days, represents the day he rose from the dead
  • The 373rd day of a period starting 7/20/2019 is 7/26/2020
  • 373 first appears in Pi like so: 720 373
If you search for word values "25, 83, 1" in the original 1611 KJV Bible (representing 25831 years), the first result is Genesis 27:45 which has a simple English total of 1699. We know that 7/26/2020 takes place 1699 days after an important date.
  • The second result has 134 letters and a reverse total of 1871
  • The third result has a reverse total of 1919 and an English Ordinal total of 1433, as 1433 appears at the end of 1699 digits of Pi

Conclusion

Well, that's enough for now. I can't verify that a precessional cycle is exactly 25831 years, but it seems as if certain values are encoded into the Bible. I find it interesting that on sites such as Wikipedia, the "accepted" length is 25772 years, as we see a backwards 2775 in that.
I don't think anything is set in stone, but symbolically speaking, 7/26/2020 represents the Harvest or a rapture type scenario where people are plucked away. 7/29/2020 seems to represent a date in which a cleansing spiritual fire hits Earth... One verse says "green ears of corn dried by the fire" and another says "the wicked are not plucked away"...
Peace and Love Patriots.

2020.02.14 15:15 SmilingJaguar Reflections on my 2 year journey: 273 to 163 lbs, Act 2 2018-2020

Recap

In act 1 we found out how our protagonist (me!) had hit rock bottom. I was at my peak weight of 276 lbs and had effectively been turned into a zombie after my 30+ year relationship with my college sweetheart and the mother of my children finally imploded at the end of 2017. So here I was 50 years old, obese and determined to take care of my teenage children 50% of the time.
I could either wallow in my despair and eat myself into an early grave or get my shit together. So I chose the latter and after 24 months I have completed my journey to maintenance within the normal BMI range. Without further ado here’s my progress chart I will refer to the chart later in this post.
Like Columbus in “Zombieland”, I set out on a journey and adopted a few basic rules for the journey ahead.
Please note that every one of our journeys are deeply personal. Things that work for me may or may not work for you, but I hope that you can use my experience to help you find an approach that does work for you.
If I could do this at 50 years old as a mostly sedentary lump with over 30 years hovering around 250 lbs +/- 25 lbs, so can you. You just have to find your own routine that works for your genetics and your lifestyle.

The Rules

  1. Don’t let the journey change who you are at your core
  2. Eat like the thinner version of you that you want to be
  3. Go at your own pace, the destination will still be there no matter how fast you make progress towards it.
  4. The destination may be far away, but you can measure your progress by looking for a much closer landmark

First Steps toward weight loss

I had found loseit. The first thing I did, and recommend to anyone starting out for the first time or even for the 100th time is to read the Quick Start Guide from beginning to end. Then do it again. One more time, but this time follow all of the “Further Reading” links. There is a veritable treasure trove of information there and even more in all the links.
Once I believed I had understood this I started to try and estimate the calories of what I was eating and drinking every day. I quickly realized that one of my major issues was the calories in what I was drinking every day. Unlike many others I had no problem with soda or fancy sweetened coffee drinks. I had stopped adding any sugar to my coffee decades ago and only very rarely drank soda.
The first problem I identified was that I was drinking large glasses of “milk”s (cow, soy, rice) and juices (apple, orange, etc…) and some lightly sweetened teas. It’s healthy, right? So why shouldn’t I be able to drink 2-4 16 oz/pint/500 ml glasses of that every day?
Well most of these drinks have ~120 kcal/cup and I was drinking 4-8 of those servings a day for easily 400-1,000 kcal/day. This led directly to rule #5.
#5 Liquid calories are insidious, so use a glass of the appropriate serving size for the drink you are planning to have.
It’s OK to have juice or milk once in a while, but only in a 4-8 fl oz. glass. Glasses larger than that should ideally only be used for calorie free drinks like water, seltzer and unsweetened coffee or tea.

Exercise/Activity

While weight loss was my primary goal and that goes hand-in-hand with calories in, I also came away from my epiphany experiences (see part 1) wanting to improve my fitness and specifically my performance on the hiking trail.
As mentioned in part I, walking was a big part of how I lost weight as a teen, so I was eager to get started again.
So I applied rule #3 (go at your own pace) and set out to try and walk for a minimum of 30 minutes a day 3 times per week. Weather and work duties permitting, I would often take longer walks. Saturday and Sunday I might walk for 2-3 hours or if I had a conference call when I had to listen in and did not have to be at my desk I might take it outside on my cell while taking a 1 hour walk. The plan was to aim to walk on Monday-Wednesday-Friday and any other day was a bonus or making up for a missed regular day.
Many of my walks were “with purpose”. From my house at that time, it was approximately 1.5 miles to my town center or 1.5 miles to a Trader Joe’s supermarket. So I would take advantage of having to go to the bank, post office, pharmacy, supermarket, barber to take a walk and go there on foot. At a modest pace of 3 miles/hr the walk each way was 30 minutes, and if I was tired or pressed for time I could always catch a bus along the same street every ~30 minutes.
This contributed yet another rule for the rule book.
#6 Under commit but over perform
Make the plan easily achievable even in those weeks where you might be too busy to work out every single day. By setting my initial goal to every other day and going at a reasonable pace I gave myself room to go above and beyond my activity goal in most weeks while still allowing for some less active weeks in case of travel, sickness or something else getting in the way.
Committing to an achievable level of activity allows even “slower” weeks to be seen as a success rather than failure.
I planned for and aimed for a 1 lb/week loss through diet alone, but my average loss was closer to 1.2 lbs/week. I definitely didn't lose 1.2 lbs every week, just the average trend from end-to-end. Some of this was definitely from not eating back all of my exercise calories and thus treating activity as a bonus loss.

Assemble your toolkit

As with any journey, you will need resources to support the journey. The Quick Start guide has recommendations, but here are mine:
My recommendations (in order of urgency):
I can’t stress enough how life-changing the food scale has been. I bought the cheapest one I found on Amazon, but it has been great. The only thing I dislike about the one I have is that it uses coin cell batteries. Things to look for: I would prefer AAA/AA batteries. It should be able to weigh a full plate of food. (Many cheap scales have the display placed where it will be hard to read with a dinner plate on it. Mine has the display in the corner which helps.) ~5kg capacity for getting the total weight of prepared foods to divide into meal prep portions.
I chose MFP and still pay for the premium features. I’ve saved more money in UA coupons than I’ve spent on it and believe in supporting things that support me. It’s not perfect, but it has worked for me.
I bought an Eufy (Anker) digital “smart” scale from Amazon. It’s not as well built as my SO’s FitBit Aria, but it works. These smart Bluetooth enabled scales make logging your weight painless. Open the app on your phone. Step on the scale and it logs into Apple Health, MFP, FitBit, what have you. Totally worth the extra $5-$10 over a “dumb” digital scale for me.
I initially chose a FitBit Charge 2 and have upgraded to a Charge 3. It does everything I want a fitness tracker to do. I wear it 24/7 and it tracks my activity, heart rate and sleep. That ends up in the FitBit app and also syncs between FitBit and MFP. MFP knows how active I have been and FitBit knows how much I have consumed. Unlike a smartwatch, I only need to charge it infrequently so I get really good coverage of my days. Things to look for: Long battery life, heart rate monitor, lightweight, easy syncing.
MFP is my “dashboard” for weight management. I consult it several times a day, but it rarely takes me more than 5-10 minutes to log my food for the day. After 2 years most of what I eat is in there at my fingertips.

Commit to the process and the routine

Focus on the routine and habits so that when you inevitably deviate from the plan you can get back to it quickly. Since my body weight is what I want to manage, I need to try to get an idea of where I am at any given time, so the most critical (but mostly passive) part of my routine and process is to weigh myself regularly.
I weigh myself daily after emptying my bladder in the morning. That’s the only way I can make it so routine that I get it done.
It syncs automatically with my phone (see the toolkit) and I move on. What matters are the 2-4 week trends, not the specific daily numbers. So you could weigh yourself more frequently and use Happy Scale/Libra to help you see the trends without going 4 weeks between weigh ins.
The problem is that you can have swings of 2-6 lbs during the day that are not actual weight gain but just “water weight.” If you take data so infrequently or at random times of the day you won’t be able to separate this naturally variations from the trends. So you could fool yourself that your process isn’t working if you just happen to catch a water weight gain at the next weigh in.
I paid attention to two principal things during weight loss
  1. My average/trend weight for this past 7 days and the previous 7 days
  2. My lowest weight in the past 7 days, sort of a leading indicator for next week’s weight.
I know that if my weight shoots up by 6 lbs from one day to the next that I’m looking at water weight because I know I didn’t eat 20k extra calories that one day. But if I only weigh in every week there is a slim possibility that I might have consistently had 3,000 kcal more each day. And that creates more stress for me.
In engineering fields that’s called “oversampling”: taking more data than you need to so that the average is more representative of reality than any one measurement. This should be obvious when looking at my progress chart.
I bring that same mindset to maintenance. I don’t ever expect my weight to be the same from day-to-day for years. I expect it to vary, probably within the middle 6 or 7 lbs of a 10 lb range. If I hit the top of the range it may be time to tighten ship a bit for a few weeks. If I drop some more I’ll probably redefine the upper limit.
So this becomes rule #7
#7 Weigh yourself routinely
For me that means daily, for you it might mean weekly, but it’s hard to control something you don’t measure.

Practice Mental Aikido - Redirect your negative emotions to support your goals

Aikido is a martial art that redirects your opponent’s momentum to achieve the goal you want to achieve. In most cases for weight loss our opponent is ourselves, and the momentum we need to harness is those negative emotions that can consume us.
I realize that this is one of the hardest parts of weight management, and mental health, but it is extremely important. We can get consumed by emotion and focus on things that are completely beyond our control. Anger about how we got to rock bottom, regret about past choices, anger at others for not giving you support when you needed it.
Redirect that anger to positive energy. You simply cannot control how others see you or treat you. Just focus on what you can control. How you see yourself and more importantly how you treat your body and mind.
If you read part 1 of this saga, suffice it to say that I had a lot of anger and sadness at the beginning of 2018. However, I turned that to resolve to get this done without becoming an asshole. (See rule #1). And I think I’ve been pretty successful at both losing the weight and staying a decent human being.
You can’t control or affect what other people will think or do, so just let it go. Redirect that energy to achieving your goals.
Don’t dwell in the past, focus on the road ahead and making it to your destination.
Many of us eat our emotions and that can become a negative feedback loop: You feel sad, eat more than you need to feel better, but end up heavier and sadder than when you started. Look for ways to break that loop.

Eat like the thinner version of you you want to be

This has already been mentioned as rule #2, but practical application of it translates to incorporating many of the foods I want to eat in maintenance as part of my regular diet during weight loss; just infrequently and possibly in smaller portions. Chocolate, ice cream, chips, beer, wine, spirits, etc... are all in regular rotation in my regular diet.
Not every day, but often enough that I don’t crave them and end up binging on them.
That thinner person inside me wants to be able to eat bread, cake, chocolate, wine, beer, etc... all in moderation and reasonable portions and so far I have managed to do just that during weight loss by reserving 10-15% of my calories for such “sometimes foods”.
If I am going to be able to eat these foods in maintenance and thus as part of my “regular diet”, I need to learn how to coexist with them during my long journey.

Eat deliberately

For me it was a conscious decision to stop having little bites. For me to be able to know how much I’m eating requires making deliberate food choices.
That means no distracted eating and no “grazing” little bites of food throughout the day.
If I’m going to eat, I eat. I try to plan out the appropriate 100 kcal+ portion of what I’m planning to eat and go for it.
I try not to eat standing up for this reason that’s how many “little bites” happen.
Eat deliberately and with focus and you gain a much better understanding of what you are putting in your body.
That doesn’t mean that you should avoid tasting food once in a while while cooking or things like that, just stop making it a habit of distracted eating. It should be the exception rather than the rule.
Give the food you claim to love the same level of respect that you would give a person you love.
Shoving fistfuls of chocolate or pizza in your face while on the run or watching TV or browsing the internet on your phone isn’t love.
Sit. Enjoy the food you love. Savor it. Spend time with it. Give it your undivided attention for even just a few minutes.
This becomes another rule
#8 Eat deliberately and with focus so you understand what you are eating
This is my version of “mindful eating”.
That extra attention paid to your food also helps you focus and “upgrade” your food. Simple example: eggs. I eat eggs every day for breakfast. I could eat them scrambled every day as a utilitarian view or I can try to cook them in different ways that makes them more enjoyable. My favorite right now is poached eggs. No extra fat required, and a beautiful runny yolk that you just can’t get from scrambled. Takes a bit more attention and you have to wait for it and be patient a bit more.

The “sometimes foods” ritual

An extension of the previous point is that dealing with “sometimes foods” has become ritualistic for me.
First, I bought some tiny 4 fl oz. bowls, but basically the idea is to use the smallest containers possible for these kinds of foods. I also buy pre-wrapped/pre-portioned chocolate like Lindor truffles and Ghirardelli squares and ice cream like mini cones or ice cream sandwiches. I look for things that are 50-200 kcal/pre-wrapped serving.
Eat with focus.
Don’t graze directly from the pantry, fridge, bag, box. Don’t eat standing up.
  1. Plan what you are going to snack on
  2. Log it ahead of time
  3. Identify a no-calorie drink to go with it (water, seltzer, tea, coffee)
  4. Prepare said drink (especially if it’s tea or coffee this requires a bit more patience).
  5. Serve the snack using the smallest bowl or plate possible
  6. Leave the food storage area.
  7. Sit
  8. Take the time to enjoy the snack and drink
  9. If you feel that you absolutely need more of the snack after finishing the first round go for it, but use a new plate/bowl. This helps limit repeat offenses.
I may not feel like another glass of water either, but it’s part of the package. Can’t have another snack without it.
This has helped train me so that even when presented with a large chocolate bar or tub of ice cream or large package of cookies I can better recognize a portion and resist having more than one serving.

Stop thinking of “diet” as a temporary state of being

“Diet” is a word that describes what kinds of food and how much of them we eat. We are always “dieting”, just that sometimes we need to pay a bit more attention to what we eat than at other times.
“Losing” weight always sounds a bit like it’s a random event and you’re looking forward to “finding” it again. I don’t want to “return to normal eating.” I needed to change how much I ate to adapt to the smaller body I wanted.
I switched from generally talking about “weight loss” to “weight management” instead when I fully realized that CICO was the key to reducing/maintaining/increasing your weight. I also stopped talking about my process as “calorie counting”, what I did was really not what most people think of there. I tracked and logged my food. The calories were incidental, and I didn’t focus obsessively on staying under some “calorie cap”. It was a target and my goal was to be as close as I could to that goal as often as I could. After all, that’s what maintenance will look like for me.
The “don’t beat yourself up I’m going to lose the weight slowly plan” might take you several years to lose more than 20 lbs but you should be able to get there. Slowly. (See rules #3 and #4). Cut what you eat by 10% and start walking 30 minutes 3x/week you can hopefully start to turn this around. When you get the hang of eating less, cut another 10% and you will increase your weight loss rate. As long as you stay above the minimum recommended intakes to satisfy your micronutrient needs (1200 kcal - 1500 kcal depending on height -- 5’6” is the usual dividing line between small and large) you should be OK.
Like the boiling frog fable you won’t notice as much if the changes are small and gradual.

Track your food intake passively

This is partially why the Quick Start Guide recommends passive tracking of what you are currently eating for several weeks before starting to restrict. If you currently maintain at 4200, dropping to 2000 (or even lower) probably isn’t the right first step.
Tracking passively helps you establish a baseline for your journey. Small incremental changes are often more sustainable than big huge jumps.
For a typical person with a 2000 kcal/day TDEE the difference between maintaining or gaining/losing 20 lbs a year is only 10% or 200 kcal per day. So if you make 10% tweaks to what you are eating you can change the direction of your weight trajectory.
Even if you are eating 3500 kcal too much a week and are gaining 1 lb a week, that’s only 3 10% adjustments form turning the ship around and losing 20 lbs a year.

Interim goals

This is the practical application of Rule #4.
I only set a goal once I proved that my process worked. After losing the initial 15 lbs I knew I should be able to keep this up in ~3 month/15 lb increments. I also knew that the entire journey of going from 273 to a normal BMI would take me close to two years.
At the end of each season I would give myself permission to stay at that weight. For a while or forever. Is this where I want to be? Do I like how I look? Do I like how I feel? Do I like how I would have to eat to maintain this weight?
You can see some of these in my progress chart where my rate of weight loss slows down for a week or two. Most of the time that was on purpose for one of these exit ramps.
My long range goal was to get to normal BMI, but any intermediate off ramp along the way was acceptable as long as it was comfortable and sustainable.
My intermediate goals were even closer than that, they tended to be in 10-20 lb increments (5-10 kg) and were often tied to unique milestones from my past or imperial/metric targets.
275 lbs (peak weight. Boo! Hiss!)
-> 260 lbs (15 lbs lost! I can do this!)
-> 250 (mean weight as an adult)
-> 235 (low weight as an adult)
-> 220 (100 kg! Not since High School! Metric Onederland)
-> 199 (Onederland, BMI “overweight”)
-> 185 (BMI 27.5 middle of “overweight”)
-> 170 (77 kg my low weight in High School - BMI 25 “normal”).
-> ???
These mostly ~15 lb increments also happen to be just about what I was able to lose in 3 months so these correlated very well with “seasonal” goals.

Planned Social Meals are not “Cheats”

I also have “planned social meals” where I’m going to eat or drink calories whose purpose is social and not only sustenance. Work dinners, dates, drinks with friends.
I log it all and it isn’t a cheat, I just try to make it fit my daily/weekly calorie budget. I’ll have a couple of lighter meals around it, go for an increased cardio session or try to eat 100 kcal less for a few days to make up for it. Not a cheat. All part of the plan.
Log your lapses with brutal honesty. Own up to them and be accountable to yourself for them and just aim to do better the next time around. No one else is responsible for you consuming more calories than you need and no one else will stop you from doing it again. Think of Smokey Bear: “Only YOU can prevent
I could eat (and did) entire sleeves of Biscoff cookies. After the first time I did that and logged it I realized that couldn’t be part of the plan. So I promised that the next time I would stop at half a pack. And then aim for one serving (4 cookies) at a time.
Now I occasionally have them on planes in packs of two cookies and that satisfies me.
And thus we have another rule
#9 No food is outside the plan, but sometimes food serves other purposes than mere sustenance.
Basically I log as usual that day up until the event. When it comes to the food I eat out I keep track by taking pictures and try to log it all the next day so I can stay in the moment with my social event.
I’ll shave a few calories off the surrounding meals. So instead of my usual ~400 kcal each breakfast and lunch I might eat ~200-250 kcal meals before and after the event. That gives me an extra 600-800 kcal to play with.
When I was actively eating at a deficit I aimed for a ~500 kcal of daily deficit, so If I can keep the net surplus to 1,000 kcal I’ve only just set myself back a couple of days from where I would have been otherwise. No big deal on a journey that was going to take me a couple of years.
Even if by some craziness one of these social meals I was 3,500 kcal above maintenance I’ll just have gained a pound.
I know how to lose a pound, just get back to the grind for a week or two because of the extra water weight.
Again no big deal.

Fat avoidance doesn’t work for me

What framework you use to help you restrict calories and reduce your weight will depend on your personal preferences. Could be CICO, Keto, Paleo, Vegan or Vegetarian diets, etc…
Many people report that pushing protein or fibevolume helps with their satiety. For me I realized early on that the key to MY satiety was fat. When I tried to restrict how much fat I was eating it would backfire and I would want to consume more total calories. The magic number seems to be around 20% of my diet needs to be fat. Below that I’m insatiable.
This totally explains why the low-fat at all cost diets of the 90s failed so miserably for me after the initial 20 lbs lost.
So now I seek out better quality fats, but of course limit quantities. But one low fat greek yogurt satisfies me in ways that two non-fat yogurts can’t. When I switch to a lower fat diet I want to eat the box the food came in, but if I eat egg yolks, cheese, butter, low fat yogurt, olive oil, avocado, nuts and nut butters I manage on fewer total calories.

Falling off the wagon

It’s easier to get back on the wagon if the wagon is moving slowly. This relates to many of the previously mentioned rules
If your diet during weight loss resembles how you expect to eat when the weight is off AND is also recognizable from what you are eating now your fall will be smaller. And that will help you hop back on the wagon faster.
Don’t over-reach. Set closer achievable goals. Plan for the minimum and exceed your plan rather than shoot for the moon and fall short.
My plan during weight-loss was typically to eat at a 500 kcal deficit from my sedentary TDEE at my current weight and have a minimum of 3 days with 30 active minutes as measured by my FitBit.
Most weeks I did better than that, exercising 6 days a week and longer and more intensely than just 3x30. But in bad weeks where work or life just doesn’t allow me to push harder I aim to lock down that baseline.
That gave me a sustained 1.2 lb/week average loss to lose over 100 lbs in close to two years.
I recognize what I eat today and expect to eat that way as I enter maintenance. The last few months of my weight loss were at a 300 kcal/day sedentary deficit and I have been bringing that up slowly over the course of the last few months. I’m still at a very small deficit as I figure out my actual maintenance TDEE at this weight.

Body temperature

After operating at a 500 kcal deficit for close to two years and losing many layers of fat as insulation I’m perpetually cold. I have to wear a mid layer when my teenage sons are in shorts. Yes, I understand the concept that shivering or warming up some ice water in your stomach will make you use more energy, but it’s so uncomfortable that I just won’t do it.
I prefer to dress in layers and drink warm drinks and eat soups and stews to try and stay warm.

Clothing

Going from 275-165 in two years has meant that lots of clothes I owned quickly became too large for me to wear and look good in.
I soon found that I could wear shirts that were too big longer than I could wear pants that were too big. So, I bought a cheap pair of jeans (<$20) at each size from 42 to 32 (I started at size 46 and had a bunch of size 44 stuff) and one other “nicedressier” pair of pants. The ones from the previous size up could be used in a pinch with a belt.
I made use of the concept of a “target piece of clothing” to gauge my progress. My first target was a black XL Columbia Sports T-Shirt that I had picked up on clearance and was practically unwearable when I started. I could squeeze into it, but I looked like a sausage. I tried it on once every couple of weeks until it finally fit me well in late April, about 10 weeks after I had started my journey in earnest. In the months ahead I would often pick up a new pair of pants a month or so before I thought I would need it so I could use it as a reference for my progress. Try it on once a week until it finally fits OK. That way you already have everything you need when the time is right no need to run out to the store.
Undershirts and underpants were replaced as soon as the ones I was wearing were getting baggy. I’d introduce 4-5 pairs at the new size while keeping 4-5 of the old size around in case I didn’t get to wash laundry.
Now that I’m pretty solidly a men’s medium top, and size 32 pants I eliminated everything that was size 36 or XL or larger. (All except for my size 46 jeans and an XXL shirt from Columbia Sports and the aforementioned XL black T-Shirt. This outfit shall be henceforth known as my “potato sacks of shame”. I will put it on when I want to remember how much I have changed since late 2017 and that fateful hike.) The size 34 and L clothes are in a box in case I gain a little weight. If I can maintain this weight for 6 months I may get rid of some of them too.
Most everything I added follows the general concept of a “pocket/capsule wardrobe” pieces that roughly coordinate with each other so they can easily be combined together. Most everything I wear is black/white/grey with some blue (jeans and similar) and some red possible. I avoid green/khaki/brown because those would be harder to match with the rest of my clothes. If you focus on simple, timeless styles and colors so that you can more easily mix and match clothes and make many outfits with fewer clothes.
Depending on what your work wardrobe is like a minimalist wardrobe could be as little as 10 pieces. There are plenty of guides online find one that suits you and target that. Add 1-2 pieces a month, and store the larger clothes you aren't wearing away from your closet.
Find a good local thrift shop and see what they have there. Or if you really want new clothes, think Old Navy or similar where you can get a pair of jeans for < $25. Many of my interim pieces were from Costco and $20 or less.

What CICO has given me

I previously had a huge tendency to binge.
CICO gave me several huge insights and tools to use to combat this.
  1. Self-accountability: Logging through the binge even if it was hugely ugly is important to own it. Yes I just ate that whole sleeve of Biscoff cookies.
  2. The ability to plan ahead: getting in the habit of logging before eating especially for calorie dense foods is really useful. Ooh! Biscoff, let me enter 6 of them in my log for today. Poop! That won’t leave me enough for dinner, so I’ll keep it to two or three.
  3. The ability to put things in perspective: if I maintain a 500 kcal/day deficit every day of the week and eat a 500 kcal surplus one day, I haven’t failed. I have just erased two days of deficits. It’s just a detour that will delay me from getting to the destination by two days. Since I want to get to the destination, I should try to avoid such detours or minimize them. Try to measure and own each lapse and make the next one smaller.
  4. The ability to lose weight while still eating “sometimes foods” regularly. I incorporate desserts, alcohol, chips and other foods in my regular diet to the tune of 150-200 kcal every day. Today I went a bit over and shared a single cannoli with my kids and had a beer with lunch. That’ll do it for the day. While tempting to have another beer with dinner seltzer will do tonight.
Perfect is the enemy of good enough. You don’t need to lose weight as fast as you possibly can, and you don’t need to eat at a deficit every day. Just most days. It’s the long term effect of eating at a deficit regularly that leads to weight reduction.

Stretch Marks and Loose Skin

Like all scars, stretch marks are echoes of past injuries. They are a reminder of what was, but everybody has been hurt and has scars somewhere. Physical or emotional. It’s part of what makes us human. Battles inside our heads are real battles. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies and very often in terms of being overweight.
These physical scars are nothing to be ashamed of. Be proud, you overcame what gave you those scars and wear them proudly. Many of us fear to lose weight because of stretch marks or loose skin and we overestimate the importance of some loose skin and scars on attraction between romantic partners.
There’s someone out there for you if that’s what you want. Fat people, skinny people, tall people, short people, all colors and religions, amputees, paraplegics, and yes even the depressed can find relationships that are compatible with them. You are no different. If you choose to, you can find someone that makes your life just a little bit richer.

Transition to Maintenance

I will keep weighing myself daily, weighing and logging my food intake, exercising a minimum of 3x a week.
I will also still go out to dinner with my SO weekly and allow myself my cocktails, beer, wine, cider and chocolate and ice cream and similar since they are all already part of my regular weight management plan while I was reducing my weight.
The only difference is that I will increase my calorie budget by a few hundred kcal/day from where I was. Maybe ultimately I will go all the way up to the “standard” 2000 kcal/days but I will do this slowly this time instead of trying to go from 1650 to 2000 immediately as this caused my failure to maintain at 195 lbs.
I’m still eating at a slight deficit as I figure out the next stage in my maintenance journey and settle in at 160-170 lbs or wherever I decide to take it from here.

The Complete Rule Book

  1. Don’t let the journey change who you are at your core
  2. Eat like the thinner version of you that you want to be
  3. Go at your own pace, the destination will still be there no matter how fast you make progress towards it.
  4. The destination may be far away, but you can measure your progress by looking for a much closer landmark
  5. Liquid calories are insidious, so use a glass of the appropriate serving size for the drink you are planning to have.
  6. Under commit but over perform
  7. Weigh yourself routinely
  8. Eat deliberately and with focus so you understand what you are eating
  9. No food is outside the plan, but sometimes food serves other purposes than mere sustenance.

Veras Magnum Opus

Veras Magnum Opus
Not an expert but putting some ideas out there for you to read. I have covered a bit of symbolism and this latest episode has revealed ALOT to discuss. This subject is difficult to put words together for, so I will just introduce some concepts slowly.
We have just witnessed a spiritual transmutation of Elliot. This is a process that can be symbolically understood with the practice of alchemy. I don't want to try to explain this as there are smarter people who have covered the subject far more gracefully than I. A good starting place is here).
A very easy to understand example is using mercury to extract gold from broken rock material. The mercury absorbs the gold, allowing you to filter out the waste material. You can then process the mercury through various stages to extract the gold again.
Vera effectively broke down Elliot and tried to transform him into his bitch. As Vera would say "I need that 24 caret". Luckily this process was interrupted by Krista.

alchemy
noun: alchemy
  1. the medieval forerunner of chemistry, concerned with the transmutation of matter, in particular with attempts to convert base metals into gold or find a universal elixir.
  2. a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination.

Jung on Mercurius
When the alchemist speaks of Mercurius, on the face of it he means quicksilver (mercury), but inwardly he means the world-creating spirit concealed or imprisoned in matter.
The dragon is probably the oldest pictorial symbol in alchemy of which we have documentary evidence.
It appears as the Ouroboros, the tail-eater, in the Codex Marcianus, which dates from the tenth or eleventh century, together with the legend ‘the One, the All’.
Time and again the alchemists reiterate that the opus proceeds from the one and leads back to the one, that it is a sort of circle like a dragon biting its own tail. For this reason the opus was often called circulare (circular) or else rota (the wheel).
Mercurius stands at the beginning and end of the work: he is the prima materia, the caput corvi, the nigredo; as dragon he devours himself and as dragon he dies, to rise again in the lapis.
He is the play of colours in the cauda pavonis and the division into the four elements.
He is the hermaphrodite that was in the beginning, that splits into the classical brother-sister duality and is reunited in the coniunctio, to appear once again at the end in the radiant form of the lumen novum, the stone.
He is metallic yet liquid, matter yet spirit, cold yet fiery, poison and yet healing draught – a symbol uniting all the opposites.”
C.G Jung
Psychology and AlchemyPart 3,Chapter 3.1

Alchemical processes
Alchemical Processes as seen in artwork by Hilma af Klint
The first four steps of the alchemical magnum opus

The Dove, Nr. 12

Hilma af Klint, Group X, Nos. 3, Altarpiece (Altarbild), 1915.
This painting is a series of 3 from Hilma af Klint. It was meant to be displayed towards the end a journey, after experiencing the other works in the collection.
https://www.guggenheim.org/audio/track/group-x-altarpieces-nos-1-3-1915-by-hilma-af-klint
"These works appear to relate to Theosophy’s version of evolutionary theory, in which evolution occurs in two directions, elevating from the physical to the spiritual and descending from the divine to the material world."
In relation to the alchemical process, transmuting gold from base metals or prima materia, refer to the basic example of extracting gold from rocks etc.
How this relates to Elliot, his mental state at the start of the episode could be considered base material or lead. The exchange of dialogue and interactions between Vera and Krista was an alchemical process that broke down and disrupted this material, shook Elliot to the core and created chaos within his psyche - prima materia. Vera was to try and form this chaotic state and create gold, or in this instance, a dependency within Elliot.
