    The Third Web Micro - Economies #2 - SpankChain

    December 10th, 2017 by Legendface66
    In today’s episode we look at spank chain, an adult industry cryptocurrency payment system built using Ethereum.

    The Ether Review #68 — Numerai, The Last Hedge Fund

    July 6th, 2017 by Legendface66
    Xander Dunn and Richard Craib discuss Numerai, a new kind of hedge fund built by a network of data scientists. The Numerai platform crowdsources machine learning by releasing encrypted data sets to data scientists, incentivising them to develop machine learning algorithms to analyse the data. Scientists then bid their predictions to the hedge fund by staking funds, and are paid returns in Numeraire, the platform’s native cryptocurrency. By abstracting its financial data to be only machine-... Read More

The starting requirement was that the systems developed should be useful in joining 1 million or more mining clients." Huge claims, but the DFINITY project is indeed one of the most interesting infrastr... Read More
