    1. There is a growing need for open standards for formats used to represent text, images, video and other collections of data, so that one producer's data will be accessible to another's software.

      Data formats are like currency. Either standardize it or make sure there are converters. Money exchange. Most used formats are valuable but also valuable content in a rare format makes the converter more valuable.

    1. While it is capable of providing constant power, hydrogen fuel cells are also being considered for providing backup power to data centers. This is greatly appealing to data center operators as a more environment-friendly replacement for traditional diesel generators. This change would see the use of fast-start fuel cells, such as proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells which could take the place of diesel generators.

      Proton exchange membranes are presumably the newer types of fuel cells, that are more flexible and need less heat, but are more pricey

    1. Investieren mit Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs): Was Anleger hierzu wissen müssen Facebook Twitter Linkedin Pinterest Investieren kann eine Herausforderung sein, aber mit Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) können Anleger ihr Portfolio diversifizieren und trotzdem auf lange Sicht attraktive Renditen erzielen. In diesem Artikel werden wir uns mit dem Thema Investieren mit ETFs beschäftigen und alles erklären, was Sie wissen müssen, um erfolgreich in ETFs zu investieren. Was sind ETFs und wie funktionieren sie? ETFs sind börsengehandelte Fonds, die eine Vielzahl von Anlagen in ihrem Portfolio vereinen. Diese Anlagen können Aktien, Anleihen, Rohstoffe oder eine Kombination aus verschiedenen Anlagen sein. ETFs bieten Anlegern eine einfache Möglichkeit, in eine breite Palette von Anlagen zu investieren, ohne dass sie ein einzelnes Unternehmen oder eine Branche kaufen müssen. ETFs werden wie Aktien gehandelt und können jederzeit während der Handelszeiten gekauft oder verkauft werden. Die Kosten für den Kauf oder Verkauf von ETFs sind in der Regel niedriger als bei traditionellen Investmentfonds. Darüber hinaus haben ETFs in der Regel eine geringere Verwaltungskostenquote, da sie passive Anlagen sind. Die Vorteile von ETFs Schauen wir uns also mal die grundlegenden Vorteile von ETFs an, die für Anleger im Rahmen ihres Investments als vorteilhaft gelten: • Diversifikation: ETFs bieten Anlegern die Möglichkeit, in eine breite Palette von Anlagen zu investieren, um das Risiko zu minimieren. • Niedrige Kosten: ETFs haben in der Regel geringere Verwaltungskosten als traditionelle Investmentfonds. • Flexibilität: ETFs können jederzeit während der Handelszeiten gekauft oder verkauft werden, was Anlegern mehr Flexibilität und Kontrolle über ihr Portfolio bietet. • Transparenz: ETFs legen ihr Portfolio und ihre Kosten offen dar, was es Anlegern ermöglicht, genau zu sehen, in welche Anlagen sie investieren. Risiken und Nachteile von ETFs Nachdem wir nun im vorherigen Abschnitt die Vorteile von Exchange Traded Funds aufgezeigt wurde, so darf an dieser Stelle jedoch nicht außer Acht gelassen werden, dass ein Investment in dieses Anlageinstrument durchaus auch Nachteile und damit, wenn auch ein geringes Anlagerisiko verbunden ist. Zu diesen Anlagerisiken gehören im Wesentlichen: • Marktrisiko: Wie bei jeder Anlage ist das Marktrisiko bei ETFs vorhanden. Wenn der Markt insgesamt fällt, kann auch das Portfolio eines ETFs an Wert verlieren. • Kreditrisiko: ETFs, die Anleihen enthalten, tragen das Risiko, dass die Emittenten dieser Anleihen ihre Zinszahlungen nicht pünktlich leisten oder ihre Schulden nicht tilgen können. • Liquiditätsrisiko: Es besteht das Risiko, dass ein ETF schwer zu verkaufen ist, wenn Anleger ihre Anteile schnell loswerden müssen. Dies kann insbesondere bei ETFs, die weniger bekannte oder illiquide Anlagen enthalten, zu einem Problem werden. ETFs vs. Aktien: Welche ist die bessere Wahl? Ob ETFs oder Aktien die bessere Wahl sind, hängt von den individuellen Anlagezielen und Risikotoleranzen eines Anlegers ab. ETFs bieten eine breite Diversifikation  und eine einfache Möglichkeit, in eine Vielzahl von Anlagen zu investieren, während Aktien eine höhere Renditechance bieten können. Wie wähle ich den richtigen ETF aus? Wenn Sie sich entschieden haben, in ETFs zu investieren, ist es wichtig, den richtigen ETF auszuwählen. Hier sind einige Faktoren, die Sie berücksichtigen sollten: 1. Anlageziel: Überlegen Sie sich, was Sie mit Ihrer Anlage erreichen möchten, und wählen Sie einen ETF aus, der diesem Ziel entspricht. 2. Risikotoleranz: Überlegen Sie sich, wie viel Risiko Sie bereit sind einzugehen und wählen Sie einen ETF, der Ihrer Risikotoleranz entspricht. 3. Kosten: Vergleichen Sie die Kosten verschiedener ETFs, um sicherzustellen, dass Sie den günstigsten ETF auswählen. 4. Portfolio-Zusammensetzung: Überprüfen Sie die Portfolio-Zusammensetzung des ETFs, um sicherzustellen, dass Sie mit den enthaltenen Anlagen einverstanden sind. FAQs – Exchange Traded Funds Kann ich mit ETFs reich werden? ETFs bieten Anlegern die Möglichkeit, ihr Vermögen auf lange Sicht zu vermehren, aber es gibt keine Garantie dafür, dass Sie reich werden. Es hängt alles von vielen Faktoren ab, wie dem ausgewählten ETF, dem Markt, Ihrem Anlagezeitraum und Ihrer Risikotoleranz. Werden die Kosten für ETFs im Laufe der Zeit steigen? Die Kosten für ETFs können im Laufe der Zeit steigen, aber es ist nicht sicher. Es ist wichtig, die Kosten regelmäßig zu überwachen und gegebenenfalls den ETF zu wechseln, wenn sich die Kosten erhöhen. Kann ich in ETFs kurzfristig investieren? ETFs eignen sich auch für kurzfristige Anlagen, aber es ist wichtig zu beachten, dass es bei kurzfristigen Anlagen ein höheres Risiko gibt. Kurzfristige Anlagen sollten nur von Anlegern mit einer höheren Risikotoleranz in Betracht gezogen werden. Kann ich in ETFs automatisch investieren? Ja, es ist möglich, in ETFs automatisch zu investieren. Viele Broker bieten automatisierte Anlagemöglichkeiten, bei denen regelmäßige Beträge in den gewählten ETF investiert werden. Zusammenfassung und Fazit zum Thema ETF Investieren mit Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) kann eine gute Möglichkeit sein, Ihr Vermögen auf lange Sicht zu vermehren. ETFs bieten eine breite Diversifikation und eine einfache Möglichkeit, in eine Vielzahl von Anlagen zu investieren. Es ist jedoch wichtig, den richtigen ETF auszuwählen und die Kosten, das Portfolio und das Risiko im Auge zu behalten. Bevor Sie in ETFs investieren, sollten Sie sich gründlich mit dem Thema auseinandersetzen und sicherstellen, dass es zu Ihren Anlagezielen und Risikotoleranzen passt. Investieren mit Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs): Was Sie wissen müssen, ist ein wichtiger erster Schritt, um erfolgreich in ETFs zu investieren.

    1. Labour Exchange - Encyclopedia

      Encyclopedia Britannica 1911

    2. Tradesmen, too, were quick to see that the exchange might be worked to their advantage; they brought unsaleable stock from their shops, exchanged it for labour notes, and then picked out the best of the saleable articles. Consequently the labour notes began to depreciate; trouble also arose with the proprietors of the premises, and the experiment came to an untimely end early in 1834.

      The labour exchange at Gray's Inn Road which began on September 3, 1832, which was based on Robert Owen's idea in The Crisis (June 1832), eventually collapsed in 1834 as the result of Greshham's Law in which "bad money drives out good." In this case, rather than money the object was the relative value of goods which were exchanged based on Labour notes. Labour notes were used to exchange unsaleable stock in shops for labour notes which were then used to purchase more valuable goods. This caused depreciation of the labor notes ultimately causing the experiment to collapse in 1834.

    1. Die schiere Menge sprengt die Möglichkeiten der Buchpublikation, die komplexe, vieldimensionale Struktur einer vernetzten Informationsbasis ist im Druck nicht nachzubilden, und schließlich fügt sich die Dynamik eines stetig wachsenden und auch stetig zu korrigierenden Materials nicht in den starren Rhythmus der Buchproduktion, in der jede erweiterte und korrigierte Neuauflage mit unübersehbarem Aufwand verbunden ist. Eine Buchpublikation könnte stets nur die Momentaufnahme einer solchen Datenbank, reduziert auf eine bestimmte Perspektive, bieten. Auch das kann hin und wieder sehr nützlich sein, aber dadurch wird das Problem der Publikation des Gesamtmaterials nicht gelöst.

      Google translation:

      The sheer quantity exceeds the possibilities of book publication, the complex, multidimensional structure of a networked information base cannot be reproduced in print, and finally the dynamic of a constantly growing and constantly correcting material does not fit into the rigid rhythm of book production, in which each expanded and corrected new edition is associated with an incalculable amount of effort. A book publication could only offer a snapshot of such a database, reduced to a specific perspective. This too can be very useful from time to time, but it does not solve the problem of publishing the entire material.


      While the writing criticism of "dumping out one's zettelkasten" into a paper, journal article, chapter, book, etc. has been reasonably frequent in the 20th century, often as a means of attempting to create a linear book-bound context in a local neighborhood of ideas, are there other more complex networks of ideas which we're not communicating because they don't neatly fit into linear narrative forms? Is it possible that there is a non-linear form(s) based on network theory in which more complex ideas ought to better be embedded for understanding?

      Some of Niklas Luhmann's writing may show some of this complexity and local or even regional circularity, but perhaps it's a necessary means of communication to get these ideas across as they can't be placed into linear forms.

      One can analogize this to Lie groups and algebras in which our reading and thinking experiences are limited only to local regions which appear on smaller scales to be Euclidean, when, in fact, looking at larger portions of the region become dramatically non-Euclidean. How are we to appropriately relate these more complex ideas?

      What are the second and third order effects of this phenomenon?

      An example of this sort of non-linear examination can be seen in attempting to translate the complexity inherent in the Wb (Wörterbuch der ägyptischen Sprache) into a simple, linear dictionary of the Egyptian language. While the simplicity can be handy on one level, the complexity of transforming the entirety of the complexity of the network of potential meanings is tremendously difficult.

    1. In my opinion, both these responses are valid, but the second one goes more directly to the issue that divides us.

    1. but it also embodies the materials and labour deployed in China and Bolivia to produce those parts, which existing methods cannot capture.

      !- limitations : of previous methods to calculate drain / unequal exchange - hidden costs of prior methods contributed large uncertainty

    2. Using a modified version of Köhler’s method, recent research has found that in 2015 drain from the South through unequal exchange amounted to $2.1 trillion (constant 2011 dollars), represented in Northern prices (Hickel et al., 2021). Köhler’s proxy approach is limited in several respects, however. It relies on PPP figures that do not adequately account for the comparatively high prices of Northern exports; it relies on GDP figures that are affected by the low prices of imports from the South; and it compares Southern exports to prices across whole economies, rather than to those of only traded goods. All of this leads to underestimating the scale of drain (see Hickel et al., 2021).

      !- comment : recent history of calculating unequal exchange - The authors, particularly Hickel have tried to estimate the drain in the past using other techniques but the recent technique of EORA I/O tables proves to be the most accurate to date, revealing a true and larger figure that previous estimates

    3. Emmanuel and Amin argued that unequal exchange enables a “hidden transfer of value” from the global South to the global North, or from periphery to core, which takes place subtly and almost invisibly, without the overt coercion of the colonial apparatus and therefore without provoking moral outrage.

      !- theoretical underpinnings : of study - Emmanuel and Amin (1972) provide the foundational concept of unequal exchange which is used by the authors in this paper

    1. From the Introduction to Ed25519, there are some speed benefits, and some security benefits. One of the more interesting security benefits is that it is immune to several side channel attacks: No secret array indices. The software never reads or writes data from secret addresses in RAM; the pattern of addresses is completely predictable. The software is therefore immune to cache-timing attacks, hyperthreading attacks, and other side-channel attacks that rely on leakage of addresses through the CPU cache. No secret branch conditions. The software never performs conditional branches based on secret data; the pattern of jumps is completely predictable. The software is therefore immune to side-channel attacks that rely on leakage of information through the branch-prediction unit. For comparison, there have been several real-world cache-timing attacks demonstrated on various algorithms. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timing_attack

      Further arguments that Ed25519 is less vulnerable to - cache-timing attacks - hyperthreading attacks - other side-channel attacks that rely on leakage of addresses through CPU cache Also boasts - no secret branch conditions (no conditional branches based on secret data since pattern of jumps is predictable)

      Predicable because underlying process that generated it isn't a black box?

      Could ML (esp. NN, and CNN) be a parallel? Powerful in applications but huge risk given uncertainty of underlying mechanism?

      Need to read papers on this

    2. More "sales pitch" comes from this IETF draft: While the NIST curves are advertised as being chosen verifiably at random, there is no explanation for the seeds used to generate them. In contrast, the process used to pick these curves is fully documented and rigid enough so that independent verification has been done. This is widely seen as a security advantage, since it prevents the generating party from maliciously manipulating the parameters. – ATo Aug 21, 2016 at 7:25

      An argument why Ed25519 signature alg & Curve 25519 key exchange alg is more secure; less vulnerable to side attacks since the process that generates is have been purportedly verified and extensively documented.

    1. As is common in the tradition of the zettelkasten, Goutor advises "that each note-card should contain only one item of information, whether a quotation, a summary, or anything else". (p28) He ascribes this requirement to his earlier need for clarity. (cross reference: https://hypothes.is/a/SfWFwENIEe2KfGMbR5n7Qg)

      He indicates that while it may seem wasteful to have only one item on each card that the savings in time, efficiency in handling, classification, and retrieval will more than compensate for the small waste.

      This sort of small local waste being compensated for by a larger global savings and efficiency can be seen in the design of the shipping container industry as discussed in Mark Levinson's The Box (Princeton University Press, 2008). Was this the exact sort of efficiency mentioned by Ahrens'? (Compare at https://hypothes.is/a/t4i32IXoEeyF2n9jQxu6BA)

    1. the conquest of the Americas was also a second human transition: an escape from agriculture to profit-driven enterprise: “Western Europeans began colonizing large areas of the rest of the world, creating the first globalized economy.” Lewis and Maslin call this the “Columbian exchange,” when humans, animals, plants, and microbes established themselves in places they had never been before. Energy from new foods, and information from printing, helped drive this new transition. Farming resumed in the Americas to feed and clothe the Europeans, using the labour of African slaves.

      Second Transition: Columbian Exchange

      In evolutionary biology, there are also another type of transition, Major Evolutionary Transitions (MET). Robin et. al propose that the introduction of writing (inscribed language) was a major information improvement that played an important role leading to a major system transition (MST).

    1. So, what problem is blockchain solving for identity if PII is not being stored on the ledger? The short answer is that blockchain provides a transparent, immutable, reliable and auditable way to address the seamless and secure exchange of cryptographic keys. To better understand this position, let us explore some foundational concepts.

    1. The coat is a use value that satisfies a particular want

      Marx: "Yesterday I pawned a coat dating back to my Liverpool days in order to buy writing paper" (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels, Collected Works, vol. 38 [1852-55]: 221).

      On the significance of Marx's coat, see Peter Stallybrass, “Marx’s Coat,” in Border Fetishisms: Material Objects in Unstable Spaces, ed. Patricia Spyer (New York: Routledge, 1998): 183–207. [PDF].

    2. Exchange value

      Exchange value appears as the property of a commodity that is exchangeable for other commodities. It also presupposes societies who produce commodities and exchange them. While all societies have things with use values, exchange value is relative to a specific time and place.

      Additionally, exchanging commodities must also presupposes a way to determine proportionality between different commodities, so that they can be exchanged in the first place.

      Exchange therefore requires some other measure that stands above the two commodities meant to be exchanged. If there were no ways in which iron and corn were found similar to a society, for example, then we would not exchange them and they would have no exchange value.

      Marx will contend that what each commodity must contain crystalized within it is value (formally) and that the substance of value is labor (viz. the common factor of both iron and corn is labor). Marx will call this kind of labor abstract labor.

    1. 駭客入侵了 DNS 的服務商,欺騙惡意將用戶從一個站點重定向到虛假網站點,在竊取用戶的敏感個人資訊後,使用它來訪問用戶的帳戶。 簡單的舉例來說,你在前往銀行的路上迷路了,有人假冒警察給你指了一條通往假銀行的路,你在存錢之後輸入了銀行密碼,假銀行就拿著你的密碼去真銀行領錢。照理來說,真銀行不該負責,而是真警察沒有做好被假冒的風險防護。(唯一不同的是,在網路世界你必須要詢問 DNS 才能知道銀行的所在) 因此,遭受攻擊的是 DNS 的提供商,而不是交易所本身。照理來說,交易所沒有承擔責任的義務。

    2. Gemini was easy when I first got into Crypto. Any cash you have in there has FDIC insurance up to 250. No other exchanges were providing that. I also noticed they were pretty selective about which currencies they put on there.
    3. Yeah, because Gemini trusted US dollar exchange. It's actually one of the only ones regulated and licensed by the state of New York, which has some of the strictest regulations in the world.
    4. I just don't like buying on there. So if I don't have to go into the application, i prefer not to. [inaudible] to Coinbase pro is also, it's poorly set up in my opinion. I don't know why i use it, but usually I'm just going in there to withdraw money.

    1. Regulating cryptocurrency without hindering innovation is a challenge for many governments. But Japan seems to be striking a pretty good balance.

Gox, when they were down for like a week, that the exchange is really the most critical piece of the ecosystem...I wanted there to be another one to take its place, if Mt. Gox failed.” 三年后,又一次黑客攻击窃取了 Mt. Gox 交易所里的 85 万枚比特币,致使其损伤惨重,最终破产倒闭。 <br/><br/> 至此,我们也就不难理解为何 Kraken 的这条推文带有如此浓厚的「脱裤子放屁」之官僚主义风格,而它在评论区的那股敦厚老实认真劲甚至让人怀疑,这难不成是搞得一出黑色幽默?交易所强化安全意识,这一点无可厚非,但以此为基础起底的机构组织,却容易把这种意识外延到审美标准和价值观层面——看看 Kraken 给 “protocol”、“asset” 下的定义吧!也许评论区里嘲笑它的网友们可以调侃道:What the hell is the unbreakable protocol?

    1. 欲戴皇冠,必承其重。“交易即挖矿”曾使FCoin撬动了老牌交易所的地位,不可否认它是成功的,它可以帮助新交易所快速积累用户和交易量,但FT没有实际价值支撑,则是一切崩盘最根本的原因。蜂拥而来的用户并没有忠诚度,对于交易所来说并不是健康的发展模式,人们最关心的是平台币涨跌,交易所的政策、发展、生态建设与他们毫无关系。当进度条推动到此时,和张健所说的要建立一个透明社区的理想,恐怕已经相去甚远。

    1. 在整个过程中,中心化交易所不但是现实世界与区块链世界的出入口,还是不同区块链网络的连接器。简单来说,交易所决定了一个新的 Token 是否有资格接入其他 Token 以及法币共同构成的清算网络。很多区块链项目的发展在被扭曲为满足交易所需求的方向上越走越远。区块链经济网络急需分布式的清算机制加入,其意义不在于要迅速替代中心化的交易所,而是带来一种新的选择与制衡,让区块链的真正价值被再次发掘,让用分布式的方式解决分布式的问题成为可能。

    1. DX Exchange uses Nasdaq’s Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocol to facilitate trades. Using this platform, DX Exchange allows users to swap tokenized stocks in major global companies, including Amazon, Baidu, Apple, Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Netflix, Nvidia, and Tesla. All of these companies will be available for trading on the platform as easily as you would swap tokens on a conventional cryptocurrency exchange.

      DX.Exchange 此举中,值得讨论的一点在于,「每一种数字代币都有一股普通股作为支撑,持有者将有权获得相同的现金股息,尽管这些公司本身并未参与其中」。 </br></br> 这让人联想到这些年来社交网络上有关「被代表」的讨论。时不时有声音呼吁民众对巨型官僚机构和商业公司保持警惕,但是当「代表」与「被代表」的两方角色互换,反转后的清奇画面又让人惊愕。这样一来,那些发声者又该如何回应?也许他们可以说,这不过是巨型商业公司的自导自演而已。

    1. One of the proposals would be togenerate more spaces for sharing knowledges. Eg providing virtual spaces, eg I have done this, what has and hasn ́t worked. I admire what you do in Unitierra, and the Zapatista, and my context is very different, so we need to change the way of looking atthings.

      There is a thing which we call Federated Wiki, that challenges how we produce knowledge : http://federated.wiki/federated-wiki-introduction.html

    1. This, of course, leaves us none the wiser as to how to model velocity, as the equation of exchange is nothing more than an identity. MV=PQ just says that the money flow of expenditures is equal to the market value of what those expenditures buy, which is true by definition. The left and right sides are two ways of saying the same thing; it’s a form of double-entry accounting where each transaction is simultaneously recorded on both sides of the equation. Whether an effect should be recorded in M, V, P, or Q is, ultimately, arbitrary. To transform the identity into a tool with predictive potency, we need to make a series of assumptions about each of the variables. For example, monetarists assume M is determined exogenously, V is constant, and Q is independent of M and use the equation to demonstrate how increases in the money supply increase P (i.e. cause inflation).
    2. The first practical problem with velocity is that it’s frequently employed as a catch-all to make the two sides of the equation of exchange balance. It often simply captures the error in our estimation of the other variables in the model.
    1. Pantera Capital has had a thesis of investing into local exchanges since the inception of its venture capital fund. Local exchanges have an advantage of a local team who understands the culture and marketing of a specific geography in addition to having the relationships for banking and regulations. In June 2014, Pantera investigated and became the lead US investor in the largest cryptocurrency exchange in Korea, Korbit. Korea was a compelling geography for a local exchange investment because of the country’s familiarity with virtual currencies, becoming one of the first countries to adopt them for gaming, having a government that is pro-innovation, having a large mobile ecosystem.

    1. an effective marginal cost of zero

      This aspect of information goods is oft quoted as a distinguishing feature whose existence supports a radically different approach from previous publishing methods.

      It's true that the marginal cost is dramatically decreased with digital publishing. But there's a big difference between "closer to zero than before" and actually zero. The marginal cost of digital information goods is not actually zero. That people are willing to trade their privacy in exchange for someone else bearing the costs of managing information is one piece of evidence of this.
