CloudCoin Weekly Bulletin 143

RAIDA Encryption Protocol will replace SSL/TLS
CloudCoin Lead Scientist Sean Worthington has created a major new encryption protocol that vastly exceeds current encryption standards and is quantum-resistant.

The new RAIDA Encryption Protocol (REP) is ultra-light, ultra-fast and ultra-energy efficient compared to Secure Socks Layer/Transport Layer Security ( SSL/TLS ).

Worthington estimates REP would be at least 1,000 times faster than SSL.

REP will be tested over the next month. Plans include making it dynamic and customizable to allow users to increase security protection for larger transactions, if desired.

Quantum Safety

Quantum computers are already threatening traditional encryption. The CTO of Ripple expressed his fears in an article this week , saying that " if (standard encryption) were to fail, the whole system would collapse. The system’s ability to say who owns bitcoin or who owns XRP or whether or not a particular transaction is authorized would be compromised ... "

Quantum computers will be able to compromise SSL and expose blockchain ke y s . They could also capture RAIDA authenticity numbers, but a quantum hacker would have to capture all traffic going to 25 RAIDA clouds, a major reason why CloudCoin is much safer than blockchain.

"The US government has declared that SSL is not quantum safe," Worthington said, "But they say that AES [advanced encryption standard] is safe if the keys are made longer and the entire US government uses AES. But there is a catch--AES is symmetric. This means that the sender and receiver must have a shared secret."

SSL, Worthington said, uses asymmetric encryption.

"That currently means we must have a public key infrastructure and have the little green locks on our browser to tell us we are safe. This SSL will no longer work."

RAIDA, he said, has already shown it can share millions of secrets with potentially millions of people because both the CloudCoin owner and RAIDA know the authenticity numbers of the same serial number. With REP, the user encrypts using the authenticity number (like a private key) and each RAIDA node decrypts using one of those numbers.

"What makes this so powerful," Worthington said, "is that we do not have to go through a lengthy key exchange and mutual authentication process. The encryption is very strong, yet very easy to do. One authenticity number equates to 3,200-bit encryption. Two numbers is 6,400-bit. Why stop there? The user could have ten CloudCoins set aside just for the RAIDA Encryption Protocol with 32,000-bit encryption, enough to defeat any quantum computer.

"RAIDA simply does what blockchain cannot--achieves quantum safety in an easy, efficient way. Users will no longer have to deal with checking for green HTTPS locks in their browsers to be confident in online transactions. CloudCoin may well end up becoming the world's only post-quantum digital payment system," Worthington concluded.


Media seeks views from CloudCoin experts
Media outlets continue reaching out to CloudCoin about broader topics in a sign that the Consortium and its work have growing credibility and cachet.

E-Crypto News interviewed CloudCoin Lead Scientist Sean Worthington about indicators for tech stocks this week. Worthington has also been asked to speak about broader cyber-security issues and has been invited to speak at several events (most postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19, like FreedomFest).


You can support CloudCoin on GitHub
CloudCoin founder Sean Worthington invited readers to support the work done by Consortium programmers and developers on GitHub. The number of sponsors has reached nearly 30 people.

As Sean previously shared, sponsorship plays an integral role in allowing the Consortium to grow and develop. Following is a list of some of the Consortium's current goals: to complete the task of becoming chartered as a Swiss verein (non-profit association), to be listed on more exchanges, and to continue to raise awareness about CloudCoin and RAIDA.

Sean became the first sponsor by pledging $100 per month at GitHub.

GitHub is the world's largest suite of tools for open source developers, and becoming part of their sponsorship program is an important step forward.


Protect RAIDA from hackers as a Guardian
RAIDA Guardians operate proxy servers to make RAIDA more reliable and robust, and Guardians 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 receiving more information on becoming a Guardian, please sign up here for an invitation to a members-only Telegram group.


RAIDA Detection Agent program to be enhanced
There are big changes coming for the RAIDA Detection Agent program.

Operators of a new "Enhanced Detection Agent" option will not only make the RAIDA network stronger, faster, and more secure, they can also act as cloud storage servers to facilitate programs such as RAIDA DATA and RAIDA MAIL that are being implemented. The enhanced agents will have different hardware and programming.

Applications for new Detection Agents are currently on hold as the enhanced storage option is tested and fine-tuned, but to be added to the wait list, you can email here and be among the first to receive information once the new option is implemented.

Detection Agent operators earn a portion of network traffic revenues, as well as a bonus paid in CloudCoins. The storage server operators will have additional incentives. Be advised, however, there are a limited number of special "Founders" opportunities available and there are now several clients ready to create traffic on the DA network.

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


Educate & enrich with CloudCoin 'Learn & Earn'
Anyone can earn CloudCoins while learning about this next-generation digital currency and the underlying RAIDA technology.

Happy Birthday, Milton Friedman
Today would have been the 108th birthday of Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman.

Friedman is described as "the twentieth century’s most prominent advocate of free markets" by the Library of Economics and Liberty. He taught at the University of Chicago for three decades, becoming a leading voice in the Chicago school of economics .

His best known works, both co-written with Rose, his wife of nearly 70 years, include Capitalism and Freedom (1962) and Free to Choose (1980). The latter had a 10-part companion TV series that translated the Friedman's ideas to laypeople.

Friedman received the 1976 Nobel Prize for economics, as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom and National Medal of Science (both 1988).

Friedman passed away from heart failure at age 94 in 2006.

CloudCoin gets Silicon Valley attention
CloudCoin Lead Scientist Sean Worthington appeared on Silicon Valley Insider with host Keith Koo , managing partner of Guardian Insight Group.

Worthington and Koo discussed CloudCoin's many advantages over encryption-based currencies before going in depth about advancements in quantum computing and the threats quantum poses to encryption. They also discussed CloudCoin's privacy and its ability to prevent inflation and other monetary manipulation. They concluded by exploring other applications for patented RAIDA technology.

Check out the full interview here or on the CloudCoin YouTube channel (about 40 minutes).


SkyWallet POS plug-in under development
A plug-in Point-of-Sale (POS) application for CloudCoin Wallet is being developed that will make it possible for merchants, websites or anyone to accept CloudCoin payments with very little cost or effort.

A traditional retail POS system costs $1000 or more to set up, $100 or more in monthly costs, AND charges 1-3 percent of each transaction. Utilizing CloudCoin POS could save an average small business $10,000-$15,000 per year, all while completing transactions faster and safer.

The POS system will work by inputting (or scanning) SkyWallet ATM card data along with the amount of CloudCoin to be sent. The system will send the coins and the vendor will acknowledge. The plug-in under development will make it much easier for vendors to accept SkyWallet payments. The system is designed to work with all current technology, so retailers will not need to purchase any new equipment.  

This will be part of the next CloudCoin Wallet release, version 4.0.0, which will be the first version officially out of beta. It will incorporate the ability to create a virtual SkyWallet debit card. Developers expect to release 4.0.0 before the end of the summer.


Could CloudCoin be the 'last digital currency'?
by Sean Worthington , CloudCoin Lead Scientist

We could call CloudCoin the “Last Digital Currency” because it is the first currency to near perfection based on the “Theory of Perfect Money” and nothing more is needed.

What is perfection? Perfection is a coin that can trade 24/7 in any part of the world with no fees. A coin that uses nearly zero electricity and bandwidth. A coin that is 100 percent private because it requires no usernames, logins, passwords or public ledgers. A coin that can be recovered if lost and for which theft can be mitigated. A coin with a fixed amount so that there is never any inflation. A coin that is file-based and separates data from logic so that it can be hidden in jpeg files or imported into software and video games. A coin that is patented and will not have thousands of copy-coins. A coin with a wallet that allows sending coins using easy to remember DNS names. A coin that is quantum-safe and will survive the extinction of cryptocurrencies that could occur in just a few years.
 
Digital currencies built on blockchains come with a host of challenges, making it difficult to do simple things like buy a cup of coffee. Transactions take too long, fees are too high and it is still too difficult to scale.

We developed CloudCoin to overcome these challenges and pave the way for mass adoption. CloudCoin enables millions of users globally to buy, sell and exchange with superior privacy and zero fees.

The security of CloudCoin is due to shredding, not encryption. A fixed amount of CloudCoins means zero inflation. CloudCoins also feature quantum security and require no consensus mechanism.
 
Over 150 million CloudCoins were traded in the month of June alone. That number of transactions on a blockchain would have cost millions in electricity and server power. CloudCoin instead offers a fast, secure and green alternative, eliminating massive server rooms and costly energy consumption.

CloudCoin will be the last digital currency needed and will result in a more globally sound, efficient monetary system primed for the future of the digital economy.

Feliz cumpleaños , El Liberador
Yesterday was observed as Bolívar Day throughout much of Latin America in honor of Simón Bolívar.

Bolívar (born June 24, 1783) was a Venezuelan soldier who led rebellions against Spain resulting in independence for what are now the nations of Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Peru, Venezuela, and Bolivia (which is named in his honor) between 1807-1830.

Bolívar also emancipated enslaved persons decades before slaves were free in the rest of Spain's empire.

The currencies of Bolivia and Venezuela each bear his name (the boliviano and the bolívar, respectively), and numerous towns, plazas and other places are named for him. Statues of Bolívar can be found in cities throughout the world, from Washington, DC to Paris to New Delhi. Even an asteroid between Mars and Jupiter is named for him.

He died from tuberculosis at age 47 in 1830.

Like Bolívar, CloudCoin seeks to liberate millions from the tyranny by bypassing controlled and manipulated state currencies.
