This week instead of talking about a current Tokenly project, I wanted to get a little hypothetical and talk about one of the non-monetary uses of Tokens that I sometimes think about.
Tokens, Trains and Right-of-Way
Some time ago I was spoke with Birdie Jaworski, editor of Very Much Wow magazine about tokens and train intersections. Right now train systems have lots of dumb infrastructure (Tracks, switches, etc) carrying smart (automated) trains from smart station to smart station.
So trains and stations need to talk to each other in order to keep an accurate picture of where the various moving parts are. When those moving parts find themselves in the same place at the same time you get a news-worthy catastrophe.
Imagine for a moment we have unlimited funds and manpower to fix this problem. The simplest way would be to station a traffic controller at every single junction with a powerful two way radio, a brain and the ability to communicate with nearby trains.
The procedure would be that whenever a train is approaching a specific intersection, track switch or anything where only one, or some limited number of trains can pass through safely at one time, the conductor radios ahead to that switches traffic controller. If the coast is clear, you know you’re safe to pass because he will tell any other trains that request after you do, but before you’ve safely passed by that the switch is busy and they’ll need to wait.Read More

A Little Color is a 5+1 song EP (extended play, so not as long as an album but more than a single song), and it's available in DRM free downloadable format for $5 in bitcoin, $7 when you pay with your credit card or $2.50 in LTBCOIN. If you have an EARLY token or a TOKENLY token, you can use that as payment as well.
If you'd like access to more of my music and support the time I spend on this, you can purchase one or more access tokens as described at the top of this site.
A Little Color may be streamed for free within this postRead More

Format Changes to LTB 2016 announced, effective immediately!
Andreas explains the upcoming Bitcoin Improvement Proposal called Segregated Witness, which allows among other things the separating of cryptographic signatures from their underlying transaction and by doing so, solve a bunch of problems. This episode is Technical but Andreas does a good job unpacking it and the other hosts are there to ask the obvious questions.
