I'm interested in new technology, especially blockchain. I'm a lawyer for some blockchain projects. I support crypto by accepting fees in Bitcoin and some other coins.

Freedom vs Protection: Should Crypto Exchanges Be Able To Censor Transactions?

29 Jul 2020 pheonixdown-dee

30 July 2020
Maybe it's not an "all or nothing" binary choice between freedom and protection? What if users are given the option in their TOU to authorise the exchange/custodian blocking payments to scammers? Then the exchange would be doing it on their behalf.

The government has multiple agendas. It is protecting consumers, and also simultaneously stimulating innovation - more business equals more taxes. But it is also susceptible of being 'lobbied' by established industry players. Thanks for your comment!

There definitely has to be a security aspect to building a smart contract. The right person has to be able to trigger a payment, for example, and nobody else. But these are, if you like, modern versions of old problems. It has always been possible for someone to walk into your bank, pretend they are you, and withdraw your savings. Banks have security measures. Smart contracts should have those too.

I'm glad you are inviting questions. Do you foresee that further functionalities will be added to STA in future? For example, could it become a payment vehicle for particular types of transactions on a specialised blockchain? Or could it you tie it to loan transactions, e.g. I stake Bitcoin collateral and you lend me some STA (which becomes more valuable as STA tokens are burned)?

What Happens To Your Bitcoin And Cryptos When You Die?

5 Jul 2020 CUMSH0T18

Cryptocurrency is a species of property like any other property, say a house or car, but there is a difference in that it is less accessible. If you leave your car to your friend in your Will and then die, the car is probably easy to find - usually it will be parked outside your home. What about accessing your cryptocurrency? The author has hit the nail on the head. How can your wallet password information be communicated safely? It's not just the lawyer who helps prepare your Will who could handle that information. After you die the Will becomes a public document, at least in common law countries, when it is submitted to a court for probate.

Gold Mining is Stopping Trees From Regrowing In the Amazon says Study

It's not super difficult to rehabilitate a disused mineral mining site, it just takes some effort. Governments that claim taxes from miners should set aside a bit of that money to rehabilitate the land afterwards. It's something that low-risk prisoners can do.

American Museum of Natural History to Remove Theodore Roosevelt Statue

23 Jun 2020 AverageVancouverite

27 June 2020
I don't deny that Teddy Roosevelt did a lot of good things, and yes I do know about him. I've even visited his house. For example, did a great thing when he doubled the size of the National Parks. What was the last thing I wrote in my comment? Melt this one and create a new statue of T Roosevelt that isn't racist. It's OK to have a statue of Roosevelt, but it's not so great to have one that minority people find offensive. "Racist" by what standard? That's a good question. Maybe white people in 1940 didn't think the statue was racist, you're right. But did they ask any "Negros" or "Indians" what they thought? Who knows. The fact is that a lot of people from minority groups TODAY are saying they don't like these statues. What weight do you give to that?

American Museum of Natural History to Remove Theodore Roosevelt Statue

23 Jun 2020 AverageVancouverite

23 June 2020
My question to anybody who objects to this statue being removed is, why do you want to keep it? To demonstrate how people in the past were racists? Really! Don't you care that it continues to insult black people and indigenous people today? If "preserving history" is so important, then the people of Europe should not have removed the swastikas and portraits of Hitler from Germany and the Nazi-occupied countries of Europe after WW2. We can keep a few racist statues in a Museum of Racism for those people who are interested in history. We don't need to have them sitting in our public places advertising values that most people don't hold. Melt this one down and make a new statue of Teddy Roosevelt that isn't racist.

Abu Hamid al-Ghazali’s influence on René Descartes

30 May 2020 Mustapha Itani

30 May 2020
Interesting post, thanks! Western epistemology is a dialogue between generations of philosophers: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Kant, Hume, Berkeley, Pierce, Russell, Heidegger. I've missed a few, but you get the idea. Descartes probably read some of Al Ghazali's writings. Al Ghazali was a great philosopher. There is, of course, another way to conceive of consciousness, which is that it is not something our brain does, but something that is happening that our brain participates in.

I gave you a thumbs up but you have got some issues with your article, bro. Most people only remember the last move in the game, not all of the things that led up to it. Russia didn't "annex Ukraine", it did that to Crimea (which was part of Ukraine). Guess what, most of the people who live in that area speak Russian and identify as Russian ethnically. If you rewind the history tape you'll discover that in 1954, Premier Nikita Khruschev of the Soviet Union (who was ethnically a Ukranian) took Crimea away from Russia and gave it to Ukraine. See how the problem started? OK so what, it doesn't excuse what Russia did. If they wanted Crimea back they should have cut a deal with the Ukranians, and not give SAMs to their stupid Crimean friends to shoot down civilian airliners. But here's some free advice: you will always understand current events better if you dig deeper and uncover the history. Here's a link to a story about the 1954 Crimea transfer, FYI: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2014/02/separatism-in-ukraine-blame-nikita-khrushchev-for-ukraine-s-newest-crisis.html

It makes sense for governments to rethink their policies towards substances that were banned for political reasons in the 1970s and which current research shows have therapeutic benefits and are non-addictive.
