CloudCoin Weekly Bulletin 125

RAIDA patent granted
Consortium Founder Sean Worthington 's patent for the underlying technology that makes CloudCoin work has been granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

This means the patent application, entitled " Method of Authenticating and Exchanging Virtual Currency" will be protected from infringement or encroachment for a decade after issuance. We now know the network of distributed, decentralized and independent servers, described in the patent application, as RAIDA (Redundant Array of Independent Detection Agents).

This is huge news for CloudCoin! The USPTO approval is a strong affirmation of the value of the underlying protocol as a novel system for authentication, as well as for its use as a blockchain alternative or possible amelioration/supplement to overcome blockchain inefficiencies.

The patent will become officially "issued" (rather than "granted") after any "child patent" applications are included. Child patents can be filed while the parent application is pending and links any future claims to the priority of the first. The child patents may fall into three classes: continuation (new claims about uses of the same patented protocols), divisional (separating different elements of the patented protocols) or continuation-in-part (new and different claims about the potential of the technology).

Examples of child patents would be any additional specific, new or different applications for the same technology--and there have been many developed since Worthington first filed almost three years ago (April 2017).
CloudCoin message reaches 300,000 online followers
As many as 300,000 people worldwide have been introduced to CloudCoin after a second CloudCoin Ask Me Anything (AMA) session yesterday.

Consortium president Sean Worthington and European representative Ilya Vlasyuk responded to online questions for nearly two hours. The session was hosted by CoinKeeper in part three of "The Ugly Truth" series.

Thursday's session got much deeper into specifics about CloudCoin and participants received answers to many meaningful questions concerning security, decentralization, privacy and quantum safety.

The questions and answers will remain online and available through Coinkeeper's AMA Telegram page .

CoinKeeper promoted the AMA to over 300,000 people through their channels and displayed banner ads and videos promoting CloudCoin sites and social media pages.

AMA sessions like today's, allow people to literally ask "anything" about the CloudCoin project and receive answers from Consortium members.
Do you have what it takes to be a RAIDA Guardian?
RAIDA Guardians operate proxy servers to make RAIDA more reliable and robust, and they can receive 100,000 CloudCoins for participating.

Guardians are a vital part of CloudCoin's global effort to create a perfect monetary system that will increase the freedom and prosperity of everyone, while helping combat authoritarian governments who rely on currency manipulation for their existence.

If you are interested in becoming a Guardian, please sign up here for more information and an invitation to a members-only Telegram group.
Earn CloudCoins & $$$ as a RAIDA Detection Agent
There are still slots remaining for people interested in becoming founding RAIDA Detection Agents .

Operators of these units help make the RAIDA network stronger, faster, and more secure. Operators earn a portion of network traffic revenues, as well as a bonus paid in CloudCoins. Be advised, however, there are a limited number of special "Founders" opportunities available.

There is also a referral program where you can become a Detection Agent, with zero licensing fees, simply by referring potential operators.

Email for more information about becoming a Detection Agent operator or joining the referral program.
Happy Birthday, Navraj Singh
This week was the birthday of long-time CloudCoin software architect/developer Navraj Singh , who has been a key programmer on almost every Consortium software project.

Raj is also one of a growing number of CloudCoin stakeholders down-under in Australia. So good onya, mate, haps, and hit the turps!
Observing National Doctor's Day
It is fitting during a global health emergency that we make note of March 30 as National Doctor's Day in the United States (many other countries have a similar observance on various dates).

Doctors, nurses, technicians and every other health care professional routinely puts their own health at risk to help others--particularly in the face of a pandemic like COVID-19.

March 30 commemorates the first use of anesthesia to successfully perform painless surgery in 1842. Doctors and other medical professionals have been helping us all lead better, healthier lives ever since.

CloudCoin Weekly Bulletin 124

CloudCoin Consortium tell their virus stories
This week we'd like to share contributions directly from readers affected by the COVID-19 virus or living in areas hard hit.
Member possibly infected

I have not been tested yet, but through community spread, I believe I may have the COVID-19 virus. I am in good health, so I'm not too worried, but I literally am at home 98% of the time. I live by myself and have friends bringing me medicine. I have no fever (yet!), but I have a bad headache, and all of the other symptoms. I have been coughing for about two days. I was advised by a tele-nurse that IF I get a fever and it goes past three days to go to the emergency room.
 
There are many people walking around who are NOT showing any symptoms but are infected, and they are spreading it -- and anyone could be infected by those walking time bombs. I either touched something that had it or a different strain of something - but whatever I have - is very powerful. So far it's been heavier cold symptoms than I have ever had before!
 
The BIGGEST problem with the COVID-19 is the latency period. People are infected and they are infecting other people and don't know it, then after six, seven or eight days later you start getting symptoms, but you have infected 12 to 20 other people. This is way bigger than the regular Flu.

Italy is in trouble, but not in panic!

I live in Milan, very close to the areas where Covid-19 has had the greatest impact, with relatives living in some of those areas. Fortunately, none of them have suffered the infection to date.
How are we fighting it?
More or less like all our friends, colleagues and neighbors:
  • staying home as much as possible
  • taking the maximum hygiene precautions by disinfecting hands and objects that enter the house
  • using masks and gloves when we go out
Covid-19 is a bad customer and should not be underestimated. It is very subtle since many are asymptomatic and become unconscious vectors. By contrast, when it strikes, a rather high percentage tends to have pneumonia and therefore requires treatment in ICU, of which there is a limited number.
What is fundamental to do, therefore, is to slow down its propagation speed, especially towards the most weak subjects (we can all take interstitial pneumonia but some, the elderly, the sick and somehow predisposed subjects are more likely to request the ICU).
Warning: I know young and sporty guys who are now being treated in ICU, so young people also have to pay close attention. Of course, they are few in percentage compared to the elderly.
After a first phase that saw the supermarkets emptied and even some people who tried to move away from the red areas reaching the villages of origin, supplies are now regular, there is no lack of food or water and people have learned to make orderly rows, staying away from each other in the lines at the supermarkets.

I use online services to do the shopping in order to further reduce the possibility of acting as an intermediary for the Covid, which I do not have but which, on going around, I could grab and transport to my loved ones.
Italy is suffering but we are not panicking, we are only aware of the weight of the test we have to go through.
I invite everyone to be strong and steadfast and to take advantage of this opportunity to reflect on what are really important things in our lives.
From Italy good luck to all,
-Luca F., Milan, Italy
Family possibly infected

My spouse, who works in a hospital, is sick in bed with a fever, dry cough, but no runny nose or sneezing. We have had to quarantine family members to their rooms. We hope it is something else besides COVID-19 and will see a doctor today.

-Consortium Member in USA
Major events cancelled

We’ve seen the cancellation of two of Omaha’s crown jewels, events that shine an international spotlight on the city: the College World Series and the Berkshire Hathaway convention. The Major League Baseball amateur draft, scheduled three days before the College World Series, was also cancelled. Mutual of Omaha, a major insurance company where my sister works, has seen a spike in new life insurance policies.

-Joe Anania, Omaha, Nebraska, USA
Milan is silent during COVID-19
Living in a big city in the times of coronavirus means rediscovering silence. Milan, the city that never stops, the city that never sleeps, the city where you always run, is now still, it rests and it isn't running.
You look out the window and what strikes you is silence!
There is no traffic, even during peak hours, there are no people around and those few who move out of necessity, do it with gloves and a mask and keep their distance.

Yes, because they tell you that masks must only be used by the sick, but if we all used them, there would be fewer sick people, right?
We have been locked in the house for 10 days, we only go out to throw the garbage and when we return to the house we immediately remove the shoes, put them on the balcony and disinfect our hands.
We have rediscovered the beauty of making bread at home ... do you know what a good smell freshly baked bread has?

The supermarkets are all open, nothing is missing on the shelves, they let you enter three or four at a time, with gloves and a mask. They only ask you to make the shopping list and not to stay inside too much, because the line outside is long (those in line stay at least one meter away from each other).
We are having a bad time, but we are not panicking!

We follow the guidelines: we don't leave home, we use services to have the shopping brought home, we often wash our hands and what enters the house is disinfected. If we go out, even just to go to the cellar, gloves and mask and once in the house, we immediately take off our shoes!
This virus affects everyone, so if you are young do not be brave, mask and gloves and disinfectant at hand! Because many are asymptomatic and do not know that they can transmit the disease to those they meet ... therefore, even if they tell you that the mask is not essential, YES, always wear it ... ALWAYS !!
Protect those around you, especially the elderly and immuno-suppressed individuals.
We Italians in this period lack hugs; those hugs that friends give each other as soon as they are seen, those kisses that you also give to those you know for the first time. Oh yes, to we Italians that really is missing! We are missing not being able to embrace our loved ones, even if they live only a few kilometers away.

Stay as long as you can at home. There are so many things to do so you won't get bored. We live in a super-technological era. Video-chat at all hours with friends are a fantastic thing to feel close right now! Always be presentable, there will always be a friend who will call you to know how you are.
And then here in Italy we are expansive. Since we are all closed in ours houses, we can still meet, organized by social media, on the balconies every day at a certain time. We sing together, we say goodbye from balcony to another, we scream that soon everything will end!

Perfect strangers, united by a long-distance hug ... it's beautiful!
Stay at home as much as possible. Here in Italy doctors repeat it 1,000 times a day. If you stay at home, it slows down the rate of infection. Doctors can't stay at home ... they are helping... let's do it for them!
So, in summary: Stay at home, if you have to go out for shopping, do it with gloves, a mask and then once at home, disinfect your hands, shoes and what has been in contact with the outside world. Do not go out unless it is urgent!

But above all, do not panic, enjoy the silence and tranquility of your home, go out into the garden to do gardening or simply enjoy the silence.

Here, in Italy, the children color the sheets with a rainbow and the writing: "everything will be fine" and then hang them on the balconies. Let your kids do it too! Color this difficult period ... IT WILL BE OK!
