CloudCoin Bulletin 96


Will you be the next to accept "Pay with CloudCoin?"
Does your retail business, website or other merchant service wish to accept CloudCoin in exchange for services or products?

If you are interested, email here for North America or here for other places in the world.

One of the first retailers to accept CloudCoin is Avalon Bay Clothing Store at the Fantasy Springs Casino Resort in Indio, California.

"I'm looking forward to accepting the payment system of the future," Vincent Puccio , the store's owner said, "and excited to introduce CloudCoin to my customers."
Upswing of trading volume seen on BitShares
This year's heaviest volume of CLOUDCOIN token trading was seen on BitShares decentralized exchange during the past week.

Nearly two million CLOUDCOIN tokens changed hands, with trading prices climbing 300% over one week before retreating.

While the interest is a very positive sign, it must be remembered that the CLOUDCOIN token traded on BitShares is a derivative of true CloudCoin. Prices are influenced by the value of the exchange's native BTS token. The process and interface are somewhat complicated, discouraging some users. One or more exchanges to trade actual CloudCoin are expected before the end of 2019.

The vast majority of all CloudCoin trading continues to take place privately. There were 2 million transactions on BitShares during the past month of nearly 59 million total powns (password-owns).
Under four weeks left for RAIDAtech funding round
There are just 24 days remaining to participate in the second funding round for RAIDAtech , the private company that develops new applications for RAIDA technology.

The crowdfunding offering page has information about the company, applications and its potential, including the $1 trillion-plus market for RAIDAtech applications.

The offering page also features a video invitation from Shark Tank's Kevin Harrington extolling the value of investing in RAIDAtech.

RAIDAtech is now valued at $11 million and any investor anywhere can take part in this funding round with a minimum investment of $200. The earlier round was limited to only a small number of investors. This second funding round is managed by crowdfunding platform truCrowd.

RAIDAtech was founded last year by Sean Worthington and is a separate entity from the CloudCoin Consortium, although RAIDAtech's success will also benefit CloudCoin by expanding utility and value of the RAIDA network's native currency.
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 solutions@raidatech.com for more information about becoming a Detection Agent operator or joining the referral program.
On the lighter side...
The absolutely craziest digital currency news stories this week were about the theory that bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto is actually an artificial intelligence using a quantum computer to travel through time.

 Satoshi is a rogue artificial intelligence who is trying to take over the world with its network,” according to Twitter philosopher Nick Hinton .
The Satoshi AI would have to be from the future, as current AI technology seems to struggle with understanding digital currency. You may recall the hilarious attempt to have an AI explain bitcoin, produced by using predictive keyboards trained on dozens of Bitcoin explainers . This is a must watch if you didn't catch it last year or check out other videos written by AIs from Botnik Studios .
Fast Facts
A key feature of CloudCoin is that coins can never be permanently lost .

Let's compare that with the most recent estimates for bitcoin:

The five-year Unspent Transaction Output (UTXO), which measures the number of bitcoins that haven't moved in five years or more, has been steadily growing since 2014 (the earliest possible measurement is five years). It is estimated that 20% of all bitcoins that will ever exist are already permanently lost (four million of 21 million). Other sources put the UTXO figure closer to five million coins. The losses are attributed to forgotten private keys, lost hardware, deaths and could include the 1 million coins belonging to Satoshi Nakamoto, who may or may not be alive.

So it's likely that one in four bitcoins is lost forever. Those coins, as of today, would be worth $55.6 billion Here's a rundown on some of the more outlandish stories, including the gentleman whose coins worth $80 million (today's rate) ended up in a Welsh landfill. Thankfully, CloudCoin owners never need to fear those kind of losses.
