Reddit sucks. It's supposed to be a place for online communities to curate a feed of user submitted content, and also curate the discussion of that content. The mechanism by which that curation occurs is the upvote-downvote system where, if you have an account on reddit and you see a post
that you think is relevant and useful to the community (and so deserves to be higher up in the feed), you upvote it, and if you think the opposite then you downvote it. The same goes for comments on that content, which are arranged in a tree structure with highest upvoted replies at the top of each collapsible branch.
This curation system might seem like a pretty good idea until you realize that it's easy to make multiple accounts on a site like reddit, and then manipulate both the voting system and the discussions in the comments themselves. Because it's going to be in some people's self-interest to manipulate the system by either upvoting content to the top that doesn't belong there or preventing content that does belong at the top from getting there, you can be 100% sure that it's happening. Assholes with nothing better to do are doing it, companies that want free advertising are doing it, and governments that want to sway public opinion and suppress dissent are definitely doing it.
The root of the problem, however, is arguably not that there are bad people who want to manipulate others. That's more so a given of the human condition. The problem is that we are operating within a system in which the cost of performing that manipulation is worth the benefit to the manipulator. If it were impractically difficult or expensive to manipulate the system, people either wouldn't do it, or would try and fail. I believe that the friction-less, worldwide, low-fee nature of Peer to Peer electronic cash has the potential to catalyze a revolution in online social networking, leading to systems in which manipulating online interactions for personal gain becomes much less viable.
The foundation of such a system, and the part which requires a low fee, worldwide payment system, is micropayment upvoting and downvoting. If, on a site like reddit, it were to cost half a cent to upvote or downvote a post, most users would be unaffected, doing small enough amounts of upvoting or downvoting that the cost is negligible. A company or government running a large scale astroturfing campaign, however, would have a much higher burn rate, needing to consistently, repeatedly out-vote hundreds, thousands, or even millions of individual users.
While a paid voting system will cost manipulators significant amounts of money, it might also discourage regular users from voting, in spite of the negligible cost. Distributing the vote-payments to previous voters, similar to yours.org and honest.cash, provides users with the incentive to vote (potentially making them a profit on popular posts). Also, as long as all vote payments are distributed to all previous voters, regardless of whether those votes were upvotes or downvotes, such a system distributes a well-funded vote manipulator’s funds to the actual members of the community, and puts the incentives in the right place for downvoters: they still get paid from later voters, but they are making the post less likely to be seen by downvoting it.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that some especially well-funded manipulator will still be willing and able to out-fund the general voting public, especially if their entire profit model is put at risk by the healthy function of an online forum. In order to combat these well-funded meddlers, what I think is needed is a user-specific vote weight system, like is described in an article of mine on honest.cash, linked in the description. The basic idea, though, is for the vote system to weigh votes from users with whom you’ve have coinciding votes in the past more highly than those with whom you’ve haven’t, or have had contradictory voting history. Such a system (with some subtle tweaks and extensions) would cost even more money to subvert, potentially infinitely more, depending on the calibration of the vote weighing.
Finally, to make sure that there are no central points of failure, the community/topic differentiation should be 100% tag based. Any time a user posts, they’ll tag their post as being relevant to any number of topics and, when one votes for or against the post, they will be actually voting for or against a given tag on that post, and will have the opportunity to vote on all other tags associated with the post.
For example, say you search the site for the tag #BitcoinCash and one of the results at the top of that tag’s feed is a post about bch that’s tagged both #Bitcoin #BitcoinCash. You could then upvote the post’s #BitcoinCash tag if you think it’s a good post, and also its #Bitcoin tag if you think it’s relevant to people searching for the tag #Bitcoin. If others upvote it on both tags, you’ll make money on having voted for both tags. If the #Bitcoin tag ends up being controversial, you’ll still make money from the downvotes it got from you helping it get higher in the first place! A tag-based system like that would be much lower maintenance than Reddit’s current moderation based subreddit system, and would be invulnerable to manipulation via squatting of moderation positions for popular topics, since there are no topic specific moderation positions.
That tag-based system, in combination with the user-specific vote weight system, could lead to communities developing naturally and organically not as subsections of the website, but instead via users using of more and more specific tags to hone in on posts that interest them, and then their votes connecting them to other users who vote in agreement.
While I think that a social network with all those features would totally kick ass, I unfortunately do not have the skills, nor the funds to make it a reality. If you also think it would kick ass, please let me know if you’d be interested in adding to a bounty for its development. If there’s enough support, maybe we can make it happen.
The level of traffic on the bitcoin blockchain took a sharp dive during the price crash of 2018, but a gradual and steady recovery has already taken us to new heights.

According to a study by CNBC, which talked about the profitable business that Coca-Cola Company shares acquired ten years ago with respect to their acquisition price and the current profitability that they could report, it was indicated that they showed growth up to three times its nominal value.
In that post, they talk about a $ 1,000 investment in a Coca-Cola share ten years ago, which would bring to $ 15,000 as a final price by February 15, 2019, allowing the money invested to be multiplied by almost three.
Now if instead of acquiring an action of that type, that same amount would have been destined to acquire $ 1,000 in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, on February 15, 2019 would report the not inconsiderable sum of $ 9.2 million USD at the average price of $ 3,600 per spot.
Bitcoin for the year 2010, had an average price of $ 0.39 per unit.
Although the traditional markets are less volatile than the cryptocurrencies, the historical price of Bitcoin shows us that despite the stake anchored to the cryptocurrency by investors and traditional economists reluctant to the new markets of crypts, they are not so profitable nor Even when the boom of the nineties occurred with the so-called "dot.com" actions or in Spanish, the boom in the actions of the web companies when this disruptive technology was emerging.
Even the actions of major technology companies such as Amazon, Google and Apple, have historically not reported such performance in the same period of time from the time of their appearance until today.
The case more similar to Bitcoin in growth, expansion and contraction, has been Amazon. The company of Jeff Bezos managed to rise up to 1.066% at the close of 1998 before falling back by 82.59%.
Bitcoin experienced something similar in 2017, growing by 1,400% and then falling by 80% at the beginning of 2018. Even so, Bitcoin in terms of profitability and prices maintains better profit margins in relation to Amazon.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. If that investor had bought his $ 1,000 in Bitcoin at the beginning of 2010, when the first transastions of the cryptocurrency occurred at an average price of $ 0.003 cents each; that same amount would today be the astronomical sum of $ 1,200 million dollars at the current price of February 15, 2019.
The scenario is even more interesting if that same amount had been sold at the beginning of December 2017, when the Bitcoin reached its maximum peak of $ 19,500 per unit. The $ 1,000 investment would report to the new criptomillonario the not inconsiderable sum of $ 6.5 billion.
Despite all the reluctance about the cryptocurrency and its accusations of fraud, hacking, volatility and financial bubbles to which it has been cataloged lately; Bitcoin has shown that it has generated a new finance model that has already touched large corporations, financial groups and traditional investors, by applying uses of its underlying technology to generate new financial solutions and 'modern' ways of generating wealth.
What emerged as a crypto-synchronism, has become an appealing asset for great institutional whales, who wait for the opportune moment to enter the game in an 'open' manner, which would imply historical maximums of their prices and therefore, for those investors of Bitcoin's early age and / or the current winter crypto; generate very decent returns in the next ten years.
All this indicates that in spite of its volatility and all the bad publicity surrounding Bitcoin, investing in crypts responsibly is much more profitable than an action of any company that is listed on the big stock exchanges of the world. After all, actions also go up and down and are manipulated as traditional economists say, to Bitcoin.

Users of rechargeable contactless smart card Sube (Sistema Único de Boleto Electrónico) can start funding it with BTC for use in 37 cities in Argentina starting on Thursday, according to local news outlet cripto247.
These cards are promoted by the Argentine Secretary of Transportation and used to pay for public transportation services throughout Argentina. They are valid on “buses, trains, subways and motorboats,” the government website details. “To travel by bus or subte (underground metro) in Buenos Aires, you’ll need to get a rechargeable Sube travel card,” the Buenos Aires tourism website notes.
BTC top up of these cards is possible due to the integration of online card funding platform Alto Viaje and fintech startup Bitex.

Alto Viaje now offers two funding methods for Sube cards: Paypal and BTC. Soon, the platform will also add funding through Rapipago, according to its website. “Alto Viaje decided to use Bitex’s infrastructure for the technology and liquidity it has, a necessary condition to face a project of this magnitude.”
Bitex CMO Manuel Beaudroit was quoted by the news outlet as saying, “We believe that this type of project is of great importance since it brings technology as disruptive as bitcoin to the common people, demonstrating the true value and the applications it has in everyday life.” He added that the minimum funding amount in BTC is 50 Argentine pesos (~$1.32), the publication conveyed.
Citing that his company wants to “offer safe and innovative services,” Luciano Verardo, Director of Alto Viaje, said that “the alliance with Bitex allows us to integrate the payment with bitcoins and new possibilities of financial inclusion for people and companies.”
In addition to the metropolitan area of the capital city of Buenos Aires, Sube cards can be used in the cities of Bahía Blanca, Catamarca, Cipolletti, Comodoro Rivadavia, Corrientes, Formosa, General Pico, General Pueyrredón, Gualeguaychú, Jujuy, Necochea, Neuquén, Olavarría, Palpalá, Paraná, Partido de la Costa, Pergamino, Pinamar, Rafaela, Rawson, Resistencia, Río Gallegos, Río Grande, Roque Sáenz Peña, San Carlos de Bariloche, San Juan, San Luis, San Martín de los Andes, San Nicolás de los Arroyos, Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz, Santa Rosa, Trelew, Ushuaia, Venado Tuerto, Viedma and Villa Allende.

- Gold was used as Cash and as a Store of value.
- Paper Money is Cash and no store of value
- BTC is a Store of value and no Cash
- BCH is a Store of value and Cash
There where 2 problems with Gold: Its very heavy and difficult to split in smaller amounts.
With BCH all this problems are gone and its already scaleable not sometime in the future.
