…and after getting enrolled at SNAX…

… by following the useful and quick tutorial written by my friend @ervin-lemark , I have managed to bind my twitter account and also my steem account, earning just for these two actions 100 SNAX which means a value of… well, nobody knows yet but it is very likely that it would have some value in the future… Do not ask me why because I am still learning from the whitepaper and studying the Roadmap.

But what I can tell you is that this project tries to reward the Social Media content creators with an specific token that seems to evaluate and measure the level of engagement, influence , followers etc…

From the whitepaper we can read:

We want to offer a solution which allows to measure the value of a public content
transparently and reward its creators without pushing social platforms to change established
business models.

Also, from point 3 of the same document:

SNAX is a utility token, which provides users with access to Snax economy, and is based on
rewarding active and influential users on public social platforms. Users can transfer SNAX
tokens to each other, stake SNAX to vote for block producers and buy computing resources
for dApps. Any user has three main ways to earn Snax tokens:

  1. Receive Regular Publisher Rewards.
  2. Receive donations from other users willing to support the author of the interesting
  3. To be elected as a Block Producer and receive Block Producer Rewards.

I am really curious to see how all this project evolves and, of course, for the moment it looks like free-token for everybody so, I like it 😉

Now is time for also getting some additional SNAX by participating at the #snaxBountyProgram .

Follow the indications of @dragosroua in this post in order to know how to do it…

By the way, our good steemian and witness, @dragosroua is an efficient SNAX Block Producer so, if if you have installed  SNAX-Voter , go and vote for him , he is called snaxtopia !!!


EOS Owner Key and Active Key – Why The Disparity When Both Perform Similar Functions?

The EOS software infrastructure and its related parameters and functionalities are complex and even more complicated for a new user.

It took me ages before I could finally take the leap to adopt the blockchain.

As much as I understand the purpose why a user needs to purchase a wallet account before accessing the core functions and uses of the system – as a preventive measure to curb spamming activities.

I found myself earlier failing to get one at every attempt I made to at least try out a single one.

Concepts like CPU, NET and RAM were already getting me confused to begin with, then I discovered I had to buy and stake some of these resources (I was finally chased away).

I asked myself; why do I need to venture into all this when I can just send and receive coins right in my Ethereum address.  

Gradually, I find the whole EOS concepts as unfriendly and convinced myself the blockchain would be difficult to be adopted by any new user.

Maybe am right on this to a degree, maybe am not, I am still yet to justify that, but in the past 6 six months after finally getting a EOS username account through a free means, I found myself loving so much a system I criticized in the past.

Regarding my low adoption assumption – EOS is now the #1 blockchain in terms of daily activities and usage as reported by blocktivity.info  and is a very close competitor to STEEM when we talk of the adoption rate.

Despite this truce and loving and favoritism, EOS still pronounce itself as a complicated structure to deal with by its extensive features. 

One feature I would like to discuss in this post which is not so unique to EOS alone but is also seen with other DPoS blockchains or in short ‘Dan Larimer’s masterminded blockchains‘ is the disparity between Active Key and Owner Key.

Their Comparison

Image Source

In a simple description, both keys can be regarded as the private keys of a wallet.

That is, they can both send, sign, authenticate and permit transactions.

Both perform higher functions of a wallet like voting for BP and permit permissions.

Initially, when the EOSIO blockchain set off specifically during the genesis snapshot both keys were merged as a single unit carrying equal weight and functions. Every account created at that period were provided with a single private key which can be regarded now as the owner key as it was needed to later create other keys.

Further, as development continued, account creation provides users with a separate owner and active keys.

How They Are Differentiated

One major striking difference between these two keys is that; the owner key represents the ownership of an account. It is the most important and powerful key. The owner key can overwrite itself and all other keys. Whereas, the active key is permission-granted-key which can perform all higher functions of an account except that it can be changed, destroy and overwrite. It is not a claim of ownership to an account.

In real-life assumptions, the owner key can be compared to a master key of an entire house which is able to open all rooms. In the other light, the active key can be regarded as room(s) specific key.

In another comparison – the owner key can be likened to the president of a society or the highest authority of a constituency while the active key can be represented as the vice of a president or a representative of an important figure.

Some Of The Supremacy Of The Owner Key In Action

Later after the Genesis account batches. Users were advice to enable their active key permission for good security reasons.

Which can be carried out by importing the owner key to a wallet that supports this procedure and then enabling the active key permission.

The greymass desktop wallet does this perfectly. This post  by @stellabelle of pixEOS  explain how to do this on a desktop with greymass.

This simple GIF illustrated how I carry out this process on mobile using TokenPocket.

Note – TP = TokenPocket, P = Private. The last part was trying to show how permission to change all key was restricted using Active Key only

You just spare two minutes to save yourself from potential future worries.

Having two powerful keys with different level of authority to your wallet gives you an extra layer of protection which you should put into practical use.

Therefore, it is advisable to up your game and keeps these two keys with different security approach.

Best Security Approach To The Two Keys.

Without making this post longer than it is.

The owner key is advised to be kept in a cold storage like a hardware wallet, paper wallet and other cold storage means.

The active key can simply be kept in a password protected text file on a desktop or mobile device for convenience and easy access. But it should be noted that sending and signing transactions can be conducted with the active key, which implies keeping the key protected as much as possible.

Which security approach do you adopt to keep both your owner and active key safe? I would like to know in the comment box below.

Motley Fools Makes A Strong Case For Yandex Over Uber and Lyft

Uber has not given any timeline for turning a profit, but is counting on self-driving vehicles to eliminate cost. Lyft Inc. could turn a profit as early as 2022, but that remains to be seen.

I heard of Yandex years ago, as the Google of Russia.  Just like Google it has branched out into other businesses, such as Yandex Taxi.  I read an article by Motley Fools titled, Forget Uber and Lyft — Yandex Is a Better Ridesharing Play.

Lyft and Uber reported operating losses of $978 million and $3.03 billion, respectively, last year — and both companies warned that they might

Bitcoin Technical Analysis: Shorts Drop

After a failed second attempt to break above, Bitcoin remains below the $8,450 resistance. Daily volume is currently hitting another all time high, just above $34 billion.

Short positions have dropped nearly 41% inside of 1 min. In other words, 1 person liquidated a ton of shorts. Strangely enough, it happened on an insignificant candle, and barely effected price at the time of execution.

In today’s analysis I discuss what a drop in shorts might mean to the market, key areas to watch, where my buy orders are waiting and so much more. I hope you find it helpful.

On 4hr chart, possible double top neckline around 7777 zone. Mentioned about the big movement 2 days ago, it happened again today causing the selloff which alts move in sympathy too.

Vodafone Is A Great Long Term Short – Part 2

Six months ago, I wrote a post about Vodafone.  Vodafone Group PLC is a British international telecommunications company that operates networks in 26 countries and ranks fifth by revenue among mobile operator groups globally.  From a macro viewpoint, technical viewpoint and fundamental viewpoint, Vodafone was flashing, SELL ME.

In the post I stated that Vodafone was cash strapped and won’t be able to service its debt, but if it wanted to keep up with the competition, it would have to find cash for 5G capital investments.  At the time,  Vodafone shares were at a three year low, but the charts were

Crypto Contest May 16: Elastos

Elastos (Huobi: ELAUSDT) has broken out of the triangle pattern in the daily chart.

(Chart courtesy of Tradingview.com (log scale))

Elliott Wave Analysis

In Elliott Wave terms, Elastos began a wave one advance on February 16. The red wave one (blue sub-waves i-ii-iii-iv-v) finished on April 8, and the red wave two (blue sub-waves a-b-c) correction ended on April 26. If this wave count is correct, Elastos should be heading next towards the April 8 peak in the red wave three.

Elastos is creating a completely modern internet infrastructure powered by blockchain technology. You can watch their introduction video below.

AI generated text // Lord of The Rings template //

Image result for derp lotr

Just today i picked up @whatsup post about an AI that writes a text based on a snippet or sentence you write. It has a few templates so i decided to give it a shot. Some of the texts i got arent that great but i picked out the best one i found. Being a big Lord of the rings fan i used that template. Let me know what you think haha.

You can check it out on this link:

The text i entered:

The Kiss-Ass legion was mighty, their numbers formidable but they did not know i held a secret weapon to match their back-patting ways. A weapon blessed with the tears of liberals, forged in the halls of Minas Trump.

What came out:

I had a lot to gain when I took on this cult, and was a fool to not have been as aggressive as I could have been on the streets before. Not only do I have the power to make them hate me, if we succeed we can take the kiss-ass bastards away from my friends and families forever.

For some of the more obvious enemies the Kiss-Ass legion has been at my side willing to fight to the last with every last bit of courage and valour I could muster. In exchange for what was gained they would leave a few things behind them that could still be used against my enemies. We were given the sword of my enemies, the sword I could not kill, and also the knowledge of their true nature.

There was nothing to be lost in going toe-to-toe, it was only a matter time.
Once I took out all the other bastards the Kiss-Ass Legion was no more.

Can you imagine the potential of this for shit posters!
