CloudCoin Bulletin 109

The Unknown Fund tweets about CloudCoin

The Unknown Fund posted a well-received tweet of information about CloudCoin yesterday.
The Unknown Fund claims connection to the hacktivist group Anonymous and has promised to donate $75 million to technology projects that promote anonymity and privacy.



"The Unknown Fund sees the protection of personal data as one of the main challenges for modern man. The use of data has already become a powerful tool for manipulating people. The effectiveness of this tool is both amazing and frightening," the group's website states.
Check out The Unknown Fund's tweet and follow @CloudCoinGlobal , #cloudcoin and #raida on Twitter.
This kind of publicity is potentially game-changing, as would be any possible infusion of funds toward the CloudCoin project. 2020 may well be a huge year for CloudCoin!



CloudCoin a contender in 'Best DApp' contest

A detailed post about CloudCoin is currently among the top entrants in Publish0x's "Best DApp" contest. The contest winners split a $400 prize pool.
A decentralized application (DApp, pronounced "dee-app") is any solution, software or tool that does not use a centralized/controlled network. Publish0x is a major blogging site for the digital currency community.
To support CloudCoin, register at publish0x and tip this post . Tips can be done using most major digital currencies. The contest runs for two more weeks, through Dec. 20.



P2P exchange on track for 2020

Consortium developers are continuing work on a peer-to-peer (P2P) exchange for CloudCoin and other RAIDA-based assets, and still plan to launch the exchange by early next year.
The most exciting progress has been with implementing a greater number of payment processors, giving global CloudCoin buyers more choices in ways to acquire CloudCoins using the exchange. At least seven major processors have now been incorporated.



Quantum news

CloudCoin Weekly Bulletin will continue to keep our readers up-to-date about the increasingly surprising and fantastic revolution of quantum computing.
This week Amazon got in on the game. Harvard researchers found a new topological insulator (necessary to limit noise on qubits) and TechHQ has a detailed analysis of the threats quantum computers pose to cybersecurity.
InfoQ: AWS announces fully-managed quantum computer services
Phys.org: A platform for stable quantum computing, a playground for exotic physics
TechHQ: Will quantum computing make current cybersecurity practices obsolete?
Advances in quantum computing continue to be realized much more quickly than expected. Its advent will effectively make current forms of encryption, the basis of all digital currencies except CloudCoin, obsolete.
Quantum computers rely on quantum mechanical phenomena like superposition and quantum entanglement to radically outperform classical computers, both in terms of speed (possibly 20 million times faster) and sheer dimension (a quantum computer can approach problem solving in ways no conventional computer can). Quantum computing calculations involve qubits rather than traditional bits. While bits are binary (limited to being either a 1 or a 0), a qubit can be a 1, a 0, or anything in between or both 1 and 0 at the same time !
An easy analogy is to imagine a globe of the earth. A bit can be either the point on the globe that is the North Pole (1) or the point on the globe that is the South Pole (0). A qubit, however, can be every point on the globe and every point within the sphere of the globe, all at once.

Happy Birthday Craig Newmark

Today is the 67th birthday of Craig Newmark, creator and namesake of Craigslist .
Newmark started Craigslist in 1995 as an email list about events in San Francisco, Calif., expanding as a website for classified ads the following year, then to other cities in 2000. There are now listings in over 70 nations.
Craigslist has consistently retained its primitive 1990's style, look and interface.



While founded to be a "minimal profit" enterprise, Craigslist generates at least tens of millions annually, mostly from employment listings.
A long-term goal of the CloudCoin Consortium has been development of a global online marketplace like Craigslist, but where all users can buy and sell or place ads for free , using CloudCoin for exchanges.

Press Release: New Authentication Protocol which has Data Quantum Resistant Supremacy Based on Post-Blockchain Technology

By CloudCoinConsortium Team

RAIDA

RAIDA – Redundant Array of Independent Detection Agents

RAIDA protocol was invited by computer scientist Sean H. Worthington - and developed by CloudCoinConsortium team.
Enabling financial freedom and freedom of speech are key to RAIDA.
The RAIDA is a new authentication protocol that is the first of its kind and the first true Cloud-based authentication system, which have Data Quantum Resistant Supremacy.
The CloudCoin Consortium is a non-profit organization. It’s a group of businesses and individuals around the world who are interested in seeing the protection of personal data as one of the main challenges for modern man.
The CloudCoin consortium is not a legal entity. It has no bank accounts. It has no headquarters. The consortium is best described as a Libertarian organization made up of individuals who are very interested in Freedom. It is a freedom-based movement that is not just talking, it’s doing something about it. The Consortium was a Platinum Sponsor at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas in 2018.

INTRODUCTIONS

The person or persons known as “Satoshi Nakamoto” introduced a revolutionary advancement affecting technology, finance, sociology and other fields with the advent of distributed ledger technology in 2008. Nakamoto or that group of people was the first to solve what computer scientists call ‘the physical integrity problem’, allowing for the creation of the first widely accepted digital currencies that could not be copied or double-spent.
That was over a decade ago.
Distributed ledger technology (DLT, also known as blockchain) also was promoted as something that would be a solution for every problem from currency inflation to world hunger to global warming.
The hype has not been the reality. Blockchain technology has been hampered by the inability to efficiently scale up to handle societal needs, unreasonably slow transactional times, and overly complex and dangerous consensus paradigms. Blockchain applications are also immensely harmful to the environment, consuming more electricity each day than used by most nations.
Some might say that there has been progress in the application of distributed ledger technology, and there has, but regardless of the many brilliant minds who has been working on it, improvements have not come close to solving its fundamental weaknesses. DLT has failed to deliver on its promise to become a transformative innovation.
Continuous advances in quantum computing, meanwhile, threaten to completely nullify the centrepiece of DLT: asymmetric elliptic curve cryptography.
The Quantum Era is near, if not already upon us, as many experts believe. Quantum computers rely on quantum mechanical phenomena like entanglement and superposition to operate on quantum bits of data (qubits). Traditional bits are binary: they are either ones or they are zeros. But Qubits, can be ones, zeros or both and can be in multiple locations at the same time. Because of this, a quantum computer can view millions of probabilities involved in a logical computation at one time. It is therefore able to process data twenty million or more times faster than a traditional computer.
The contest between quantum computers and DLT’s asymmetric cryptography has been likened to cutting hair with an extremely sharp knife or a high-powered focused laser – a single quantum computer can easily defeat cryptographic systems thousands of times stronger than existing today.
The simple reality is that by the time DLT/blockchain technology reaches anything near critical mass, it will already be obsolete!
We are, factually, already in a post-blockchain environment. The next generation of technology to shield data transmission, stop counterfeiting, ensure privacy, safeguard financial security and protect intellectual property will be effective only if it is quantum-safe and provides solutions to blockchain’s problems with scalability, efficiency, governance and ecological sustainability.
The CloudCoin Consortium has developed applications based upon the next generation of technology, and is now the world’s only quantum-safe technology that solves these security problems and more.
The technology platform is RAIDA – Redundant Array of Independent Detection Agents
The RAIDA is the new authentication protocol (post-blockchain protocol) that is the first of its kind, and is the first true unhackable Cloud-Based authentication system.
Most authentication protocols require one password to be given to one server that is checked against one database. The RAIDA uses many passwords against many different servers each with a no-share database.
RAIDA has already proven its value and significance as the backbone of CloudCoin, the world’s fastest and most secure post-blockchain Digital Currency. CloudCoin is the native currency of the RAIDA network. There has not been and will not be any ICOs, or fundraising rounds. This means that CloudCoin is not obligated to investors, and since the RAIDA network features are free to the Consortium, all CloudCoin transactions are free to the users.
CloudCoin is now just beginning to be utilized as a means of exchange throughout the world and already has a market capitalization exceeding $30 million.
CloudCoin – The World’s First Cloud Currency!
CloudCoin is a Digital Currency. That cannot be counterfeited, controlled, tracked or stolen. CloudCoins cannot be double spent, mined or lost. It is 100% private and requires no public ledgers, accounts, or encryption.
CloudCoin is a completely fair, decentralized and ethical monetary system that is not owned or controlled by anyone.
Our goal at the CloudCoin Consortium is to make our Digital Currency accessible and usable for everyone regardless of experience.
The world is not made up of tech-savvy people. Programmers and others wise in the ways of computers and how to handle them are very few compared with most of the world population. We believe that a digital currency should be easy to use by people from every walk of life as well as have the best security and privacy available anywhere.
RAIDA technology is challenging existing players in the DLT space with amazing post-blockchain solutions. Here’s a few key statistics.

RAIDA is:
  • 23,000 times faster than blockchain and will reach 8 million transactions per second (8 mil. TPS).

  • (3e+21) three-sextillion times more secure than blockchain and simply cannot be hacked or compromised, even by quantum computers.

  • 41,000 times more efficient than blockchain, which means less cost to the user and less damage to the environment.
Unlike blockchain, RAIDA is fully scalable. It actually  grows faster and more efficient as the network grows. Any blockchain will slow down with more users or with the more data it handles.
People are doubtful, and often ask, “Why is the RAIDA Quantum safe?”
That’s actually a good question. It is quantum-safe for a few reasons.
The first reason is that it does not have a public ledger, which acts as an entry point for anyone trying to decrypt it. RAIDA does not have a public key. It is not in any way public.
The second is that when CloudCoins are transmitted the coin’s self-contained code is cut apart or “shredded” into 25 pieces and even smaller again. making each of them meaningless on their own.    So if a hacker were to capture one of the RAIDA servers, you would only have 1/32 of 1/25th of the authentication data. Since the system works on a decentralized consensus basis you would simultaneously need to first find and then decrypt a majority of the servers.  If you were able to decrypt one server or even a few of them it would not give you ownership of any coins.
In order to crack a CloudCoin, you would need to guess the Authenticity Numbers of a majority of the RAIDA. Each CloudCoin is made up of 400-bytes of code with 16-bytes per line. Each of those lines are made up of a 16-byte password that is 100% random. Each of the 25 lines are sent to a different core server. The core server then cuts or “shreds” the 16-byte lines into smaller pieces that get sent to sub-servers which are also hidden around the globe. Then, just like a program on your computer that locks you out when you fail your passcode the platform has a similar safeguard. The RAIDA has a bottleneck of how many guesses can be done each second. With such a bottlenecks the calculations which would be required are mathematically phenomenal.
The public ledger does not have a bottleneck.
With a public ledger, a hacker could make as many guesses as they had servers. If a hacker has a football field full of supercomputers (like the NSA), then they could guess trillions of combinations per second.
With quantum computers, a hacker could guess all combinations within two minutes and crack the Blockchain. With RAIDA, we can only guess 8 million per second per RAIDA. This means that it would take more guesses than there is time in the Universe and the RAIDA is Quantum Safe.

RAIDA CLOUDS

Each RAIDA network is composed of many redundant servers, networks, and databases. Such arrangements of hardware are often referred to as Clouds. The Domain Name System, (DNS) that the Internet is based upon has such redundancy in place. And it has never been brought down since 1985. No matter what components fail or are attacked, the system keeps going. The databases are mirrored in several different physical locations. There are teams of Web servers for high availability. Multiple locations allow for catastrophic failures from catastrophes such as typhoons, floods, earthquakes, meteor strikes, or unfriendly government attacks, yet still stay operational. Because the content of a CloudCoin is invisible it does not present an attractive target and therefore with all the difficulty involved it is highly likely that RAIDA clouds would become the target of free-lance hackers. However, because RAIDA allows for financial freedom it will predictably be attacked by one unfriendly government or another in an attempt to demonstrate the system as unsafe and discredit it, or to simply take the system down, but like past failed attacks on the DNS system, the RAIDA Clouds will survive those attacks too.

RAIDA SENTINELS

Each CloudCoin can be sliced into 25 parts and then into 32 smaller parts. There are 25 sub-clouds (called "crypts"). Each crypt is responsible for one CloudCoin slice. A Sentinel cluster guards its 32 crypts. The Sentinel clusters themselves hide behind Content Management Systems. For security purposes, Sentinels are dispersed around the world in different countries. The Sentinel IP addresses are hidden, and only the Content Management Systems know their IPs. Then the Sentinels each hold a directory of all the IP addresses of the detection agents in their crypt. Only the Sentinels know the IP addresses of the detection agents, so the locations of the detection agents are hidden from everyone else and are therefore obscured from view. The Sentinels will query the Detection Agents on behalf of the CloudCoins to detect Counterfeits and fix any seeming faults that might appear in the coins. This is important because with so many simultaneous transmissions some errors can occur and consensus is necessary for authentication. The system therefore has a built-in method of handling discrepancies.
Current locations of Sentinel Servers: Australia, Macedonia, Philippines, Serbia, Switzerland, South Korea, Japan, UK, India (x3), Germany (x2), USA (x3), Taiwan, Russia (x2), France (x2), Singapore, Argentina, Canada.
Right now, the RAIDA network consists of 25 core servers, which is 11 more than the entire core system of the Internet’s DNS network.
In the future, as need demands, additional clouds will be added, and placed in other geo-political locations. This will facilitate more traffic and make the entire system faster and more secure.

The Sentinels

The RAIDA is like a clock-tower in the centre of a medieval village. It provides a public service, but it needs to have someone wind it up every day and make sure it is maintained. The clock keeper may make sure that the clock is secure and works, but the clock keeper did not invent the system of time, and does not invent new features.
The RAIDA is made up of over 22 independent companies who are physically located in different jurisdictions around the world. Each of these RAIDA Administrators - called Sentinels - are independent and are paid for their operations by recovering lost or abandoned CloudCoins. The Sentinels are world-class systems administrators whose job is very simple: Keep their RAIDA up and running. Just like the clock keeper who kept the city clocks going in medieval days. They do this by purchasing and maintaining their own application servers, reverse-proxy servers, backup servers and DNS names. They must provide bandwidth, electricity and updating code when released by the CloudCoin Consortium. The RAIDA administrators own their RAIDA for life so long as the follow the RAIDA constitution. The RAIDA constitution specifies their duties and all the reasons they could be removed. RAIDA Admins are appointed by the President of the CloudCoin Consortium based upon their technical expertise and dedication to a free economy. Many of the Sentinels have 32 Detection Agents behind them that actually hold the data. Detection Agents are independent individuals who operate using a small "Raspberry Pi" computer in their home. Each of the detection agent’s computers are connected to the Sentinels directly via an encrypted VPN connection and cannot communicate with any other computers except the Sentinels. The independence of the Detection Agents help add integrity to the system, but they have no say in how the RAIDA is governed. The Sentinels keep the clock running but depend on the Detection Agents to handle data and on the CloudCoin Consortium for innovations.
The keeper of the clock (The RAIDA) runs by itself. The CloudCoin Consortium developers work to maintain and improve the RAIDA software. In this way the “Cloud People” will create a virtual Republic that will defend the economic liberty of its users no matter where they are located.

INDEPENDENT DETECTION AGENTS

Each Sentinel and Detection Agent is controlled by a different person. Each Sentinel may use a different algorithm for dividing the load among the Detection Agents. Some Sentinels may shard (divide by rows) the CloudCoin authentication data between the Detection Agents.
Some Sentinels may use a hash or random lookup table to divide the load. Detection Agents may not know the serial numbers of the CloudCoins that they are detecting. When random lookup tables are used, it is impossible for RAIDA administrators to assemble the CloudCoins back together. Only Sentinels can do this, and they cannot do it alone since a consensus is required.
Independence: RAIDA Clouds operate under different controllers and are not beholden to each other but instead are peers (equals). They can use whatever technologies they like, such as Linux, Windows, PHP, C#, Java, Apache, Tomcat, IIS, MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, etc.
Distributed: With few exceptions, RAIDA Clouds are located in different liberal nations. The word "Liberal" is used in the classical meaning of the term used by Philosopher John Locke to describe countries that protect life, liberty, and property. This guards the RAIDA against the actions of governments. Because the speed of electricity can circle the globe in milliseconds, there are no performance issues.
Redundant: RAIDA Clouds all do the same basic job. In theory, they could all go down and so long as one still works, the CloudCoins are good.
Fixability: It is unlikely, but has been assumed, that RAIDA Clouds will go down completely and have all their data hacked. That is why the system has been built so that it is possible to simply discard RAIDA Clouds and rebuild new ones somewhere else. Unlike the blockchain, the CloudCoins themselves hold the data. Even the CloudCoins themselves are independent. CloudCoins have a grade based on their redundancy, and these grades can be improved by fixing themselves on broken RAIDA Clouds.
Fig 1. – The CloudCoin is divided into 25 slices. Each slice goes to a different Sentinel. Each Sentinel has a directory that holds the secret IP addresses or between 1 and 32 Detection Agents. Each node is controlled by a different and independent entity. The Sentinels and the Detection Agents are located in different jurisdictions. The Sentinels can each decide how data is stored within their Agents.

RAIDA QUORUM MEMBERS

Our most important security feature is our people. We only allow internationally recognized Systems Engineers to be members of the quorum. Quorum members must have professional certifications and long histories of successful work experience. No people with criminal records or of low moral repute are allowed. The Quorum provides the governance of the RAIDA authentication system. Each Quorum member gets one vote. The Quorum members are funded by CloudCoins that are completely lost or abandoned, so it will work in perpetuity.

RAIDA AUTHENTICITY DETECTION PROTOCOL

The RAIDA protocol is an extremely light protocol that requires only milliseconds to execute and sends and receives just a few hundred bytes of data. Clients send authenticity requests in parallel to 25 RAIDA clouds. Thanks to the speed of light, it only takes milliseconds for signals to travel to the other side of the planet and back. Each RAIDA cloud responds with either a simple "pass" or "fail." There are no time-consuming codes to decipher or create. The RAIDA protocol requires no sessions or cookies. The conditional GET method is used to simultaneously indicate that the previous GET has not been modified and to reduce unnecessary network traffic.

RAIDA SELF-REPAIR PROTOCOL (TRIPLE KERBEROS)

Sometimes, the Sentinels will be unavailable. When unavailable, Sentinels are either restored or replaced. The CloudCoins can repair them because of the unique fact that all the authenticity data is stored in the CloudCoins themselves. The repair protocol cloud is called "Triple Kerberos" because it uses three tickets. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol that works on the basis of 'tickets' to allow nodes communicating over a non-secure network to prove their identity to one another in a secure manner. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography.

CONCLUSION

RAIDA does everything that the Blockchain does, only much faster, more reliably and far more efficiently. The RAIDA is already more reliable and efficient, and in the future more nodes and networks can be brought on to perform all the world's transactions within milliseconds. With RAIDA, the work is distributed amongst more nodes instead of requiring each node to do more work (like occurs with the Blockchain).
The cost of electricity and operation is 3,000 times less than the Blockchain. Data storage is minimized. All data can be stored in RAM. The RAIDA is 100% quantum safe and does not use encryption. The system is fault-tolerant and can withstand government attacks, natural disasters, hackers, and even internal subversion.
The RAIDA is ready for retail and does not require any client download except for a webpage, or small- size client software download of just 5 megabytes. Even though so little storage is necessary with CloudCoin, its security is far more intense.
Blockchain is authenticated by users with only a 32-byte private key. RAIDA is authenticated by 400-bytes of unguessable authenticity numbers (like DNA), which also completely change with every owner.
Blockchain processing can take between 10 and 45 minutes (or more) to make changes to the Blockchain. With RAIDA the whole process takes less than 2 seconds to authenticate a CloudCoin and change the code (key).
The Blockchain is protected from hacking by encryption. Quantum computers run by governments most likely can already crack the Blockchain's encryption A CloudCoin note holds its own information. Authentication data is globally spread out (stripped or shredded) across 25 Clouds per network. With CloudCoin there is no single bank to rob.
We created the software - first Client Software of its kind for secured Digital Currency Transactions, the First Non-Crypto Ledger to have Data Quantum Resistant Supremacy based on Post-Blockchain RAIDA technology!
Yours Transactions with that software are Totally Secure and Anonymous! Your money belongs only you and nobody can track your transactions or the amount which is on your account! No-one can freeze your account either!
No Fees, No Tracking, “No Accounts”, No Waits, Totally Secured and 100% Anonymous!
The CloudCoin Consortium has developed an ultra-secured and totally anonymous system for Digital Money Transaction, where you immediately see your money in your wallet’s file system right after the transaction. It's not necessary to install huge amounts of data on your system. The software is only about 5mb and each coin 1kb.
CloudCoin, requires no logins, usernames or passwords. And, it does not track anything. So, there is no public ledger to look at. CloudCoin does not require a blockchain but operates as an evolution of the DNS system. CloudCoin has "Data Supremacy" and cannot be brought down by hackers, governments, not even the people who created it.
CloudCoin was based on "Theory of Perfect Money" by computer scientist Sean H. Worthington, that spells out how money should be.
The significance of the RAIDA is that now there is a global authentication system that people can depend to be Confidential, Available, and have integrity. So, everyone can now use as they wish and can even create their own domain controllers (RAIDA Realms) and then extend permissions and rights to whatever network resources (servers) they control.
In other words, the CloudCoin Consortium has developed a new authentication protocol that allows for complete privacy.
Confidential is one of the main factors and like physical cash, digital money should not require any accounts, membership or tracking a database like Blockchain.
Our technology is now being applied to Email and Data storage that can be used to create entire anonymous communities where people can authenticate without revealing their identity.

Happy Birthday Pong!


Today is the 47th anniversary of the launch of Atari's Pong , the first commercially successful arcade video game.

While primitive by today's standards, Pong revolutionized arcade games and laid a foundation for later home console games and personal computer games to come.

CloudCoin is the world's first crossover currency that can be used in and out of video games and other applications and Consortium developers are actively working on ways CloudCoin can become the standard for in-game virtual currency.

Stranger than Fiction

Stranger than Fiction
                                                                                                                           By Christopher Davis

You may have heard mention of the strange machinations of the corporate or government bureaucracy’s collective minds. I have, but sometimes when you consider what they do and try to understand them it can lead you down strange, but interesting paths.



Especially when it’s what you don’t find that is most interesting.

What I’m talking about is that two of the most mind-boggling, blindingly important, paradigm-changing developments of the twenty-first century have not been labeled “TOP SECRET” and hidden away by the government, as many others have.
I know that sounds weird, but it’s not unusual for inventions to be suppressed by the government. There are thousands which have been.
But it is unusual when some new paradigm-changing technology of interest to the government, specifically to the NSA, has not, as might be expected, been hidden away in a cavernous warehouse like the one shown in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark, or hidden from public view deep in the bowels of Cheyenne Mountain or on a secure computer tucked away in some closet in the White House.
Many don’t know it, but the government has a program where the use of secrecy orders allows US Defense agencies to control patents, including those that are privately developed. If they deem it to be in the national interest, those inventions might never see the light of day, or by the time they eventually do they’ve become geriatric oddities.
As of 2017, according to statistics reported by the US Patent and Trademark Office and published by the Federation of American Scientists, there were 5,784 patents that you are not allowed to see. They’re inventions stored away under “secrecy orders.”
One of the examples listed in a revealing article at www.Slate.com was the mention of a patent that was filed in 1936 that didn’t get released until 2000 when it was 64 years old. It’s particularly curious now because it concerns cryptography which is in the news every day due to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and the database ledger called the blockchain. In this case, it was a patented cryptograph machine used to manually code and decode messages.
This then conjures up images of the famous, or infamous, Enigma code machines that were used by Nazi Germany during WWII and of the man who broke their codes, saving the lives of thousands.

The Enigma Machine                          Alan Turing

The Enigma had an electromechanical rotor mechanism that scrambled the 26 letters of the alphabet. In typical use, one person enters text on the Enigma's keyboard and another person writes down which of 26 lights above the keyboard lights up at each key press. If plain text is entered, the lit-up letters are the encoded ciphertext. Entering ciphertext transforms it back into readable plaintext.
The original secret code and its advancements were broken by Alan Turing as part of the British ULTRA program. Alan Turing is widely seen as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence and is credited with helping to shorten the course of the war and saving thousands of lives. A movie was made in 2014 about Turing’s life called The Imitation Game.

How It All Relates

Alan Turing was a brilliant twentieth century analyst, cryptographer and computer scientist who contributed much to computer science, to the understanding of artificial Intelligence and to humanity. But, in the end, regardless of his stellar contributions, Alan Turing ended up suffering due to government suppression and ignorance.
The two gentlemen I’m about to introduce are, to put it mildly, twenty-first century groundbreakers, both who are making contributions to computer science and society that will change the world. Their brief stories exemplify that government agencies don’t only use patent suppression, sometimes they act out of oversight, ignorance or outright malicious intention.

First Example

In 2002, Peter Warren, the creator of an extraordinary new method of software construction called ExoTechnology, and his team, visited the NSA (National Security Agency in Fort Meade, Maryland). One reason for the visit was to see if anyone else had invented technology such as theirs. ExoTech, as mentioned above, is paradigm-changing, much in the way that Arthur C. Clarke describes in his famous words, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Unless you’re too young to remember, there was a sentient, talking computer in the Arthur C. Clarke novel and Stanley Kubrick movie entitled 2001: A Space Odyssey. An ExoBrain (software created with ExoTechnology) is like that but more advanced. You can teach an ExoBrain how to do things using ordinary language. It doesn’t need any cryptic, hard-to-understand programming code. If you had a completed version at your office, it could run your whole office or company or just be your office assistant and carry out all your office needs, maybe even get you coffee if it had an android form. In this case, we’re not talking about an android or a robot, we’re talking about the software, a sentient ExoBrain that could run an android.
The NSA saw a live demonstration of a rudimentary ExoBrain in action at Fort Meade, they witnessed a proof of concept of what had been created, and were very impressed – enough to invite the team back for a second visit two weeks later. Warren’s team concluded that the NSA had never seen anything like it when they were invited to list themselves as a technology supplier to the NSA. Pleased that they were so well received, but not convinced that this was the appropriate direction for the company to take, the ExoTech team took it no further.
While there was no indication of any connection, six months later in 2002, the SEC (US Securities and Exchange Commission) showed up on what seemed to be an innocent data-fishing expedition. Later, this turned into trumped-up charges reminiscent of communist days, and a legal tussle was begun that lasted for years, and by 2008 ExoTech ended up as the target of a civil suit by the SEC that defied any logic anyone has ever been able to decipher.
The SEC’s imaginary scenario had been that the investments ExoTech had taken in were fraudulently obtained because there was “no technology,” even though the SEC had been repeatedly offered a demonstration of the proof of concept prototype. They also refused invitations to visit the ExoTech company offices to review the work in progress and the working ExoBrain, or read the ExoBrain patent application. Saying it wasn’t necessary to see the prototype of the ExoBrain, the SEC then still (incomprehensibly) went ahead and sued them for not having any actual technology.
This, of course, was patently (please excuse the pun) false because the “no technology” accusation was certainly disproved, ironically, by another US government agency – the US Patent Office, which later granted a 157-page US patent (number 8,397,222.) That, plus the fact that the NSA had suggested, after seeing an actual demonstration of the prototype, that ExoTech list itself as a technology supplier to the NSA. It was all ignored. Of course, do you think that the NSA would have requested ExoTech to become a vendor if they hadn’t already seen the ExoBrain in operation? Certainly not.
The SEC also ignored the fact that ExoTech, long before the SEC first showed up, had offered all investors
their money back (including those investors who the SEC later claimed had been defrauded)
 This was the accepted way of righting any real or imagined investment wrongs. The company had already identified by itself that it had unknowingly taken too many “unqualified” investors (as the SEC defines them). The company, therefore, took the standard and acceptable action, at a cost of $500,000, to correct its mistake. The SEC also ignored sworn declarations from 9 investors (representing 80 percent of the investment that the SEC claimed had been fraudulently obtained) attesting to the effect that the tech and its prototype (which is still in use today) worked just fine, and that they, the investors themselves controlled the disbursement of their own investments.
The effect of the SEC’s actions was extraordinarily damaging and effectively halted the effort in its tracks for some years. Though the coincidence is remarkable and strange, perhaps stranger than fiction, there can be no proof that the object of the suit by the SEC was to shelve the technology because they had missed the chance to label it as “secret” and hide away the technology. It’s an assumption attempting to make sense out of the incomprehensible. It makes sense because they couldn’t just shelve it away because a patent had already been published by the US Patent Office, was available to the public and therefore couldn’t be suppressed in the normal fashion. The whole affair didn’t end until 2008 and now is just a dark piece of history or perhaps a bad dream.

Second Example

In 2017, Sean Worthington was a college professor who, while working on his PhD, came to the realization that money was simply data and that a perfect money should follow the laws of data management. He created a paradigm-changing software package which is now known as RAIDA, the Redundant Array of Independent Detection Agents.
RAIDA is patterned after the Domain Name System (DNSwhich supports the entire Internet. The DNS is made up of 13 core nodes placed around the world, while RAIDA has 25 core nodes scattered around the world. These core nodes are called Sentinels, and each Sentinel has 32 detection agents for a total of up to 800 authentication nodes, aka terminals. Data that is being transmitted is shredded (including the data which is money) and sent to the different RAIDA locations. No single shard means anything or is worth anything on its own and the system works on an independent decentralized consensus basis and reforms the data packets at the receipt point it was sent to. Each time any data is transferred, its authentication codes change, preventing counterfeiting or any forms of double spending.
Without attempting to get into detail here, the system is lightning-fast (faster than VISA), uses practically no electricity, is infinitely scalable, and is mathematically impossible for even the new quantum computers to hack.
Sean’s experience with the government was a bit different. He had also filed a patent and wasn’t concerned about that when he gave a talk in Cyprus to a delegation of central bankers and government personnel about his new unbreakable anti-counterfeiting technology. He spoke to them about CloudCoin, a new cloud-based digital monetary system that is the next evolution in alternate currency. One which solves all the problems inherent with cryptocurrencies and the blockchain platform the cryptos are based upon. He informed them that extensive testing had been done on a worldwide basis with complete success and that there were many potential applications that could be of benefit
This time, despite the availability of extensive test results and an offered opportunity to examine the technology … it was ignored.  Why?
We assume that the answer was that the CloudCoin monetary technology could not be used as a control tool. By its very nature, it cannot be used to suppress or control. In other words, because of its inviolate nature, it could not be co-opted and used within a digital system that is built for currency manipulation. It was the ideal currency, one that could free mankind, and they saw no purpose in it.
Unbeknownst to Sean at the time, the banks and governments of the world had already decided on using the blockchain, but with them it wasn’t going to be a decentralized one. A centralized blockchain was scheduled to be Big Brother’s ultimate tool for total control of everyone’s money and what they plan to use to introduce a single world currency.

Conclusion

Here we have two world-changing technologies, both of which are designed to make the world a better place, and due to the strength of the human spirit and the support of others who can see the value of what is being offered, each of these remarkable individuals continues creating a freer and better future.

Advances in quantum computing continue to be realized much more quickly than expected. Its advent will effectively make current forms of encryption, the basis of all digital currencies except CloudCoin, obsolete.

Post imageQuantum computers rely on quantum mechanical phenomena like superposition and quantum entanglement to radically outperform classical computers, both in terms of speed (possibly 20 million times faster) and sheer dimension (a quantum computer can approach problem solving in ways no conventional computer can). Quantum computing calculations involve qubits rather than traditional bits. While bits are binary (limited to being either a 1 or a 0), a qubit can be a 1, a 0, or anything in between or both 1 and 0 at the same time!
An easy analogy is to imagine a globe of the earth. A bit can be either the point on the globe that is the North Pole (1) or the point on the globe that is the South Pole (0). A qubit, however, can be every point on the globe and every point within the sphere of the globe, all at once.

Feast Day of St. Alexander Nevsky
Tomorrow, Nov. 23, is observed as the Feast Day for Alexander Nevsky (Александр Невский, c. 1220-1263), canonized as a saint in the Russian Orthodox Church.
Post imageAs Prince of Novgorod and Kiev, and Grand Prince of Vladimir, Nevsky led the defense of early Russian states against German and Swedish invaders while brokering detente with Mongols. He took monastic vows shortly before his death and surrendered his worldly titles. His bloodline descendants included Russian Tsars into the 17th century.
Nevsky is among the most (possibly the single most) revered historical figures in Russia. Nevsky was commemorated on an alternate version of the first 100 CloudCoin notes.

Repudiation Day

Post imageNov. 23 is also a little-known but interesting holiday known as Repudiation Day, commemorating the date in 1765 when American colonists took their first official steps toward rebellion against the British.
Twelve judges in Frederick County of the Maryland colony repudiated the British Stamp Act and declared they would not enforce the tax and refused to stamp documents. The tax would have been used to support British troops based in the American colonies. The Act mandated that legal documents, periodicals and most other printed materials, be produced only on stamped paper made in England. The tax ranged from ten pounds (legal licenses, about US$450 today ) to one penny (single sheet of paper, about $0.36 today).
Resistance to the Stamp Act and other levies ignited pleas for "no taxation without representation," as the colonists did not have a voice in the British Parliament. This dissent led directly to organized resistance and later the War for Independence.
