Reasons for investing in CanYa after price drops 90%

Why I Invested in CanYa
Cryptocurrencies are grabbing the news headlines, and their performance has exceeded many a speculative investor’s wildest dreams. Blockchains remove the shady side of digital currencies by making all transactions fully traceable, but despite addressing the concerns raised by those who are uncomfortable with the possible ethical implications of supporting cryptocurrencies, few of them are particularly stable.
CanYa seems to be bucking the system by offering a genuinely promising investment opportunity that could yield excellent returns. How safe is CanYa? Its recent selection by China’s online retail giant, JD.com is evidence of the trust that CanYa engenders, and it’s the cryptocurrency-specific accounting setup that’s one of the biggest contributors to this vote of confidence. The company admits that, following its launch, it found itself in an “accounting and compliance hole,” but its subsequent actions have dug it well and truly out of that hole.
JD president Yongli Yu says that whole-process traceability is important, and that CanYa’s blockchain meets it and its clients’ requirement for transparency. And in case you’ve never heard of JD.com, we’re talking about a China-based retail platform with revenue of nearly $50 billion and over 266 million active users.
Why Consumers and Investors are Turning to CanYa
There is no shortage of reasons to get involved with CanYa. The blockchain-powered marketplace allows for cryptocurrency-based business transactions covering freelance services. The platform allows users to choose between currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum and its own token, the CAN. And if users still prefer to transact using Australian Dollars, there’s room for that option too.
CAN might sound like just another crypto, but CanYa says that its coin can’t be created out of thin air. The number of coins in circulation will decrease over time as a result, and that will boost the value of the currency still further.
The company purchased a stake in crowdfunding and bounty service Bountysource, an established platform that first began to do business back in the 2000s and CAN coins can be used as an actual currency that nevertheless manages to duck the currency exchange fees that would ordinarily apply to international transactions.
With stability and value assured, consumers and investors around the world are turning to CanYa as a viable and trustworthy alternative to traditional transaction platforms and currencies.
It’s a Real Business
The cryptocurrency boom has given rise to a lot of hype, and there are almost certain to be casualties, but CanYa is a real business with concrete assets at its disposal. Investor trust is evidenced by the $12 million in investment already raised, while the company itself is probably significantly undervalued at a worth of $15 million when its successful projects to date are taken into account.
CanYa is achieving worldwide recognition, and JD.com’s recent endorsement of the blockchain is CanYa’s latest triumph. I’m confident that it won’t be the company’s last. With JD’s business development acumen, marketing power, and existing network to boost the business, CanYa seems destined to grow from strength to strength. Will CanYa disrupt the services platforms industry by providing a peer to peer platform that doesn’t charge ridiculously high commissions to freelance service providers and their clients? It’s already doing so, and with cryptocurrencies becoming a mainstream means of payment, CanYa’s own digital currency is sure to thrive.
You may be asking how low can it go?
Valid point, while you may be concerned about how much further the price of CanYa can go, you have to go back to market fundamentals before making the decision of buy or sell. Sure, the crypto market is falling at the time of writing this blog (BTC: $8,900 ETH: 691 XRP: 0.80). You need to remember the blockchain markets are just like any other financial market, plus some. In February 2018, the Dow Jones [DJIA] dropped close to 10% in only a week of trading and every investor started hitting the panic button; however what followed was nearly a full recovery which is still in progress.
The point being when you are investing in an asset, you have to look at two things, the market conditions and the fundamental value of the asset. For CAN, it can be argued at this level they are nearly cash backed, which leaves very little room for potential price failure.
Taking the current market cap of $15m (USD), the cash they hold from the cap raise, the $2m CAN buy-back, the joint venture potential with JD.com, the Bountysource.com investment, and the upcoming launch of the CanYa platform, there’s lots to look forward to!
Another important factor when looking at price action on any financial market is the volume. In the instance of CAN, the volume is averaging 0.6% of the market cap which is relatively low compared to its peers. Price drops on low volume generally don’t sound the panic buttons for investors.
That’s all for now, we will keep you updated with our views for CAN as things develop further over the next few months with some exciting developments coming.

Sustainable Emacs development - some thoughts and analysis

Influenced by some recent posts, I have decided to outline some ideas I've written about monetarily sustaining Emacs development.
Emacs is amazing software. Although not without its shortcomings, there are many things that Emacs gets right. One of the best things(if not the best) about Emacs is the community. With the latest developments in text editing being "Let's put the editor in the browser!" and "Let's rewrite stuff", let's take a look at packages that came about in the Emacs world:
And there are many old and new ones including org, fireplace.el, lispy, cider, and so forth.
Writing and maintaining these packages is no simple task. Not only does it require creativity and ingenuity to come up with better ways of pressing on keys, it also requires understanding Emacs and its API(not easy) and being a good Emacs Lisp programmer(not easy).
Not to mention the core maintainers and developers. While I might not agree with certain opinions, I admire the amount of work and soul they put into this project.
So how do we, as a community, support it?
Monetarily, not well.
It's hard to find stats on how much money is donated through FSF(more on that later), let's examine publically available information on how much money is donated to emacs projects:
Magit - 244 dollars a month.[https://www.patreon.com/tarsius] Projectile - 17$ a month on bontysource, 8$ a month of gratipay [https://www.bountysource.com/teams/projectile/members] [https://gratipay.com/Projectile/] Helm - [https://www.patreon.com/emacshelm] 6% a month on patreon.
and so forth. I find it shameful, and I wish for it to change.
Before I move forward with the post, I'd like to play some devil advocate with myself:
"I support projects by writing packages and making contributions" - sure, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be rewarded for your contribution.
"This is a problem with Libre Software in general - there's little incentive in people to pay for it" - true, but I think we can also smooth certain corners. More on that below.
"Well, what have you done to change this?" - Nothing. I'm the worst of both worlds, haven't contributed anything in terms of code or money to the community. That's not the point.
"People do it for fun and not for money" - again, doesn't mean they shouldn't be rewarded.
I look at this selfishly. Emacs has been attracting some top-notch guys that do some incredible things, and I want them to stay there working on the editor that I use.
But alas, so far I have contributed 0$ in support.
Why?
I see myself spending anywhere around 100$ supporting the Emacs community for what I already have access for and maybe setting up monthly contributions if I believe that these money goes to further work on my editor.
So why haven't I donated so far? While it is true that there are market failures that are characteristic of any open-source market, there are certain transaction costs that could be brought down with the kind of brainpower this community has.
Firstly, let's take a look at supporting Emacs core. There's actually no way to do that I could find. You can donate to FSF project in general here, and while it is certainly worthy of your money to support the non-profit and their cause, I have following concerns(controversial):
For my reasons, I don't use/know of many of the projects that FSF owns/supports. I use Emacs, and I wish to donate to Emacs. I believe FSF is missing out on valuable information when they make one big sink donation called "Support Free Software". How do you know which projects are needed by the users and which ones are not? It's akin to having an Android phone and instead of it being an open market it is "pay 100$ a year for a bunch of apps". However, the above critique is not enough to justify not supporting their cause, so in writing this post I decided to contribute. I encourage you to do so too.
Emacs core out of the way, Why don't I donate money on Patreon or bountysource or gratipay?
There is, of course, the obvious pain of tracking and setting up accounts and fussling with cards. There's the feeling that "It'll be fine", or "I'll do it some other time". So let's think how can we make a monkey with a short attention span like me to actually donate for his/her editor.
When I find the desire to donate, I would like to donate for my entirety of Emacs experience - starting from Emacs Core and Magit to fireplace.el and tetris. I desire to mentally figure out a sum that I'm willing to donate(let's say 70$), a period of time(one-time or recurring), and spend as little time doing so.
The way things are right now, the above is not possible. Time for some self-made criticism again.
"You are just a lazy fuck. Invest some time in your day and pay some money. How much time a working day you spend messing around with your config? Wouldn't you want to more things to mess with?"
I fully agree. There's little excuse.
However, we are not done examining my editor yet - the vast majority of packages I use do not have a donation page at all.
Given all of the above, I started writing a system that would alleviate some of my concerns.
My first idea was the donate-emacs package/website combo. By installing(or just distributing with emacs) a donate-emacs package, it would parse your package-alist and make a post request to the donate-emacs server. It would then parse generate a page that looks something like this and presents you with dials customizing how you want to donate - one-time payment, once in a period, etc.
This quickly presented the following problems:
Suppose they donate money, how should they be transferred to contributors/maintainers?
After some time, I decided in the making that I should manage cryptocurrency payments only - they are far easier to manage and don't present the third party problem inherent to credit cards.
That is when I realized, why bother with websites at all? My potential users are Emacs users - if something can be done within Emacs why not do so? Why not make improvements to package-list that would include the interface I've outlined above? A user would pull the list of packages installed, press some C-c bindings to register a Bitcoin wallet and setup the donations however they want, and manage it anytime from emacs.
Hence, I started to write wallet.el to manage cryptocurrencies within Emacs.
This approach quickly presented problems too. It's easy to setup a Bitcoin wallet somewhere on some website and then forward the money from it to some Bitcoin address, but I haven't found an API or a cli that I could use that I would be able to do the above from emacs.
So, I admit I'm way over my head and have decided to reach out. I know literally next to nothing about bitcoins and cryptocurrencies, and I haven't even finished reading through the Emacs manuals yet. Besides, I'm not even sure if the above is the right way to do it.
What do you guys think?

Dev Meeting Notes, 2016 08 22

#namecoin-meeting notes, 2016 08 21 # Present: Jeremy Jonas Brandon Midnightmagic Pigeons Joseph Namecoin Core The wallet name operation bug in Brandon's name tab PR has been isolated by Jeremy. Appears to be a bug in upstream Bitcoin Core (or perhaps Namecoin Core master branch) that has been fixed. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/67#issuecomment-231316792 Whit Jackson submitted a documentation PR for building on OS X. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/97 If anyone can test, please do so! Jonas will test this. Jeremy noticed that Travis CI accidentally flagged our repo as "potential abuse detected". Jeremy contacted Travis CI support and got our account whitelisted. Jonas notices that the Travis CI builds for our 0.13 branch are failing at the moment. Jeremy suggests filing a GitHub issue. Jeremy asked Jonas to submit a PR for Gitian builds for OS X. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/issues/38#issuecomment-236101580 DrHaribo of BitMinter requested that getblocktemplate be re-added to Namecoin Core. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/issues/98 Jeremy points out that since nVersion=4 blocks are nearing the lock-in point, we should deal with this sooner rather than later so that BitMinter doesn't get kicked off the network. Brandon asked on GitHub about how wallet unlocking should be done with the name tab GUI. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/67#issuecomment-240852324 Upon discussion, Brandon currently plans to try using the raw transaction API for this. Daniel submitted a PR to temporarily disable the low-S standardness check. This should improve confirmation times for the old 0.3.80 clients. The check will be restored after AAA activates. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/100 Test reports would be great. Jeremy points out that this needs to be done before nVersion=4 blocks are locked in. Jeremy wonders whether we should cancel plans to release 0.12 as stable, and focus on 0.13 branch. Tentative plan: keep maintaining 0.12 until Bitcoin Core releases v0.13.0; backport the name tab to whatever stable branch exists at the time that it's merged to master. SPV Jeremy's initial PR for Namecoin support has been merged to libdohj. https://github.com/dogecoin/libdohj/pull/18 Jeremy still needs to rebase the bitcoinj-addons code based on the libdohj changes made during review, and then submit a pull request. In the meantime, Jeremy's latest bitcoinj-addons and libdohj code is posted. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?p=16788#p16788 Someone please test it? Jeremy asks if he should post a link on Reddit. Jonas says yes. Jeremy will do so. ncdns Jeremy asked about the old fork of a Conformal library (see previous meeting); Hugo doesn't recall details but thinks it had to do with pre-Namecoin-Core not following spec properly. Hugo would be happy to accept a PR to make it use the current Conformal libs. https://github.com/hlandau/ncdns/issues/12#issue-163964219 Jeremy pointed out that sometime in the future we should fix the Extended Key Usage Critical flag on the dehydrated cert template. Go's standard library doesn't have a built-in way of setting that flag, which is why it's not in the first draft. Jeremy and Ryan can't think of any plausible attacks where it matters. Jeremy suggests a 1.0 BTC bounty for an ncdns NSIS installer. Possibly funded 50/50 by NMDF and a fundraiser. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2566 Mining Cassini noticed that BTCC and ViaBTC have started mining Namecoin. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?p=16703#p16703 This is good news for mining diversity. F2Pool's share of Namecoin blocks is down to circa 43% as of July 26, 2016. Public Relations Cassini represented us at GETD#4 in Berlin July 22-23. Jeremy mentions that we should think about translation workflow. https://github.com/namecoin/meta/issues/35 Jeremy notes that Bitcoin Core is using Transifex. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/blob/mastedoc/translation_process.md Jeremy says that whatever works for Bitcoin Core, should probably work for us. Midnightmagic concurs. Joseph believes that Armory (post-ATI) is trying Transifex. Brandon asks what the pricing looks like for Transifex. Joseph believes it's gratis for open-source projects. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia confirms this. Jeremy wonders what safeguards are in place on Transifex to reduce risk of malicious translations. Joseph isn't sure. Jeremy points out that the way we organize the list of exchanges doesn't make sense for decentralized exchanges like Bitsquare. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin.org/issues/70 Jeremy suggests listing decentralized exchanges at the top of the list. Jeremy notes that this might annoy the centralized exchanges who pay us for placement, but that this doesn't bother him at all. Midnightmagic concurs. Pigeons mentions that he's seen an increase in Namecoin offers on Bitsquare recently. Jeremy will have a table at the OU CS welcome party on Sept. 9. Let's try to recruit some developers! Brandon asks what the status is of the students from last year. Jeremy is sad to report that the SPV student and the UX student from last year are not participating this semester. Pigeons says a "Namecoin vs Blockstack" FAQ entry would be helpful. Jeremy will work on it. Midnightmagic asks if a meetingbot would be welcome. Jeremy says yes. Midnightmagic will look at setting one up. Funding Jeremy has filed a complaint with Tip4Commit about their usage of CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. https://github.com/tip4commit/tip4commit/issues/300 Tip4Commit has not responded after 25 days. BountySource balance: $5/month from 1 recurring supporter Total funds available: $304 USD Pigeons suggests looking into Patreon. Jeremy notes that they have CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia says they take a 5% commision, which is half of BountySource's 10%. Jeremy notes that some free software projects use them currently. https://www.reddit.com/linux/comments/33dp6n/should_open_source_projects_use_patreonkickstartecqkrlkf Jeremy will look into this in more detail later. NMDF incoming funds: 0 mBTC received since 2016 07 03 0 NMC received since 2016 07 03 Pigeons suggests looking into Flattr. Jeremy notes that they have CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia says they take a 10% fee (same as BountySource). Jeremy will look into this in more detail later. 
Note: I made a typo in the title of this post on Reddit; the quoted date of the meeting is correct. (I can't see a way to edit the title of a Reddit post.)

Do i understand the blockchain right?

I felt that i understood the blockchain by now, but the range of transactions that are possible, their usefulness, and the apparent ease with which they could be implemented in that understanding dont seem to match reality. The question then is, either there is a reason it isnt being implemented, in the newer coins, or my understanding is off. In older coins, maybe they are afraid it will break things in existing coins, but then the question is the same about the new coins.
Now for my understanding of the blockchain: Basically you take a checksum of appended:
 checksum_of_previous block miners_pubkey value_you_scan_for_mining (each one gives a new checksum with a shot of beating the difficulty) accepted_transactions ... (whole list) 
The result of the checksum is the score, if you get a score below the current difficulty for a correct block. (Havent figured out how that is agreed on yet) You win the block, and may refer to it, to use it as money in your reward. A block is correct only if the transactions are also valid; i.e. dont send more than a wallet contains, all signatures must check out.(most transactions have signature, unless they're attached to the miner somehow)
Of course some point in the network may not know about better scores existing, to avoid that, the longest chain wins. Miners and nodes would become aware of longer chains implying their earning would go lost if those chains won outright, so they'd switch.
Edit: whether the above is correct is essentially the question, the below indicates the kinds of transactions that seem missing.
However in this understanding transactions can be really arbitrary, basically anything the other nodes can check. And apparently bitcoin has a whole scripting language for them, but why isnt it being used? There are many potential uses:(not neccesarily of the scripting language, but in principle doable with transactions)
Edit: if it is the scripting engine that might be secure, maybe a whitelist, or specific commands could be introduced.
BTW1: this also covers a view of proof of stake, and thoughts on 'proof of serve', but i dont think that relates much
BTW2: havent tried understanding all of these yet, afaik they're not in there.

Asking Bountysource.com to add other forms of payment

Bountysource! is growing by day having accepted projects in all areas.
So a request was made towards their support to accept other forms of payment:
To whom it may concern,
Bountysource growth and acceptance in the community proves that the initiative has an open minded view of new technology.
One of the best way to further reach to the community would be to accept new forms of payments. Some would be even easy to integrate and others might require contracts and other financial agreements.
Some of the suggestions include:
Thank you"
Their response:
"Hi Liviu,
Thanks for the feedback! We absolutely plan to support more payment methods. In fact, we have GitHub issues open for these particular suggestions already:
Bitcoin: https://github.com/bountysource/frontend/issues/390 Credit cards: https://github.com/bountysource/frontend/issues/486
You can track our progress via those links. Thanks again for reaching out!
Camille"
I think this is in sorts good news. I am also posting this in case anyone wants to contribute. I think we all should lobby towards implementation of Bitcoin as much as possible.
Thank you

Matching Donations: Register/Manage Names with Libcoin Rebase / Lite Client

Hi,
As you may know, the Namecoin dev team has been working to rebase namecoind and Namecoin-Qt on a newer codebase, specifically libcoin (a refactorization of Bitcoin Core by Michael Gronager of the Kraken exchange). This is because namecoind and Namecoin-Qt are based on the Bitcoin 0.3.x codebase, which is not really maintainable.
libcoin has a lot of nice benefits: most notably it makes it easier to produce trust-free lite clients (we've already done some experiments getting the stored blockchain reduced in size significantly, see http://blog.namecoin.org/post/91019719220/libcoin-lite-client-storage-mode ).
Right now libcoin does not support the name_new, name_firstupdate, and name_update RPC commands, which are a prerequisite to the rebase. (It already supports name_show, name_filter, and name_scan.) To help speed up development, the FreeSpeechMe fund will be matching donations for this feature 1:1 up to $50 USD (so up to $100 bounty total). The bounties are handled via BountySource; this means that no one can redeem the bounty until the GitHub issue is closed. BountySource's escrow services are built in to protect against fraud. Both USD and BTC are accepted by BountySource.
So, if you'd like to support Namecoin development and have a few dollars to spare, please consider posting a bounty. You can do so at the link below.

Cheers!
