Considering how to create self-governing pod, based on #stellar token. The idea is that when deploying, pod will programmatically create issuing and distribution account, emit limited number of tokens (and lock issuing account after it), and put tokens for sale. Then participants buys that tokens, creates accounts on pod and add their stellar public keys to profiles. After it, any user could initiate governing issue, like assigning pod moderators, or initiate payment (for example for hosting) from distribution account, and all participants will be able to vote. Pod will fetch participant's balances from horizon, and the vote weight will be equal to number of pod tokens at participant’s stellar wallet.
The questions are, how to verify that certain user is owner of stellar wallet, as he mentioned in profile. And how to avoid issue, that server admin could launch deployment process once again, and switch pod governing to newly generated token
Also could be discussed at github

Bitnation has begun a process to get its passports recognized as Laissez-Passer — similar to those issued by national governments or international organizations like the UN as emergency passports, for travel on humanitarian grounds or for official travel. Bitnation is seeking equal privileges and immunities to those of other nations - as set out by the Vienna Conventions on Consular and Diplomatic Relations - for its passport holders. A standard non-Diplomatic passport will be issued in 2019.

9th of October 2018, Amsterdam, Netherlands has issued Vienna Convention compliant (ICAO and ISO/IEC 7810 ID-3 standard and machine readable) to the public, ambassadors and core team members to allow users to travel as they work with nations and communities looking to assert . The passports are recorded on the blockchain and use the Bitnation Jurisdiction app’s Public Key as a unique identifier.

Have watched video about different types of #consensus in blockchain and discovered for myself Federated Byzantine Agreement (used in #stellar cryptocurrency). In short, node admins could form a groups of trust, and by intersection of groups, trust could be spread across network. It could be used to share #blocklists or for #nomadicidentity

Question about wallet on . I wand to store wallet on encrypted ext4 /#LUKS flash drive. On wallet start up, when I'm trying to set path to custom directory to flash drive, I'm getting error "directory cannot be created". How this could be fixed?

History is a great way to learn about the pitfalls and flaws of man. Potemkin Village came to mind this morning...it is a good analogous to the Alt environment surrounding BTC. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potemk

The lack of interesting content is the thing that bother me the most about ZeroNet. But you have to start somewhere. Kind of the same problem with every platform, you need an initial group of users to really contribute for others to find interest in joining and staying on the platform.

Will probably put the websites of my two companies there. And maybe other kind of content ?

A lot of people have been saying BTC is trading above $20K USD in Iran, but that’s not true at all. It’s based on a claim by the EXIR exchange, where BTC was trading for 1B Iranian Rials (IRR) last week. With the official exchange rate (published by Iranian govt) at 42K IRR per 1 USD, that would indeed be about $23K USD. But in reality Iranians are paying around 130K IRR per 1 USD. With LocalBitcoins showing 1 BTC @ 800M IRR, that’s about $6150 USD at the actual exchange rate.

You can break down people into two groups.

1.) People who troll others for entertainment

2.) People who take group 1 seriously

Politicians think it's more valuable to suppress 1000 innovators than to permit 1 guilty person to go free.
