Ryan X. Charles is the co-founder and CEO of Yours, which is solving the content-monetization problem with peer-to-peer micropayments. Yours is like Medium, but with a pay wall. Creators and curators get paid directly by consumers instead of by publishers from the traditional business model where content-creators’ content is used to sell subscriptions and third-party ads. Expected results include higher rewards for content creators and incentive to produce better content. Formerly, Charles was an engineer at BitPay, an engineer at BitGo, and was the cryptocurrency engineer at reddit. He’s been in the crypto space since 2011.
Well, let me put it to you this way! early in 2010 I was contemplating suicide. I was on the dark web to buy some very powerful termination drugs to kill myself with! the only way I could buy them was, to buy Bitcoin. So I bought $2,000 worth of bitcoin for pennies on the dollar.. years later after getting out of my depression state. I decided not to use the stuff that I bought on the dark web and kill myself.. I sold the bitcoin last year for 64 million dollars!!! I’ve already bought 5 million dollars worth of Ripple, and plan on buying 5 million more and the next 30 days!! isn’t it ironic how life works out sometimes? the money is nice to have, even though I still go threw some very depressing days! I haven’t even told my family or my wife of 30 years.. just keeping it all secret for now.. hell, I still live in a double wide mobile home for God’s sake! but anyway cryptocurrency has saved my life!!!!
Once a transaction is entered in the database and the accounts are updated, the records cannot be altered, because they’re linked to every transaction record that came before them (hence the term “chain”). Various computational algorithms and approaches are deployed to ensure that the recording on the database is permanent, chronologically ordered, and available to all others on the network.

A user on the parent chain first has to send their coins to an output address, where the coins become locked so the user is unable to spend them elsewhere. Once the transaction has been completed, a confirmation is communicated across the chains followed by a waiting period for extra security. After the waiting period, the equivalent number of coins is released on the sidechain, allowing the user to access and spend them there. The reverse happens when moving back from a sidechain to the main chain.
The good thing about sidechains is that they are independent of their main chain. Sidechains take care of their own security. Problems occurring on the sidechain can, therefore, be controlled without affecting the main chain. Likewise, a security problem on the main chain does not affect the sidechain although the value of the peg is greatly reduced.
The most important usage of a token is a “token” or a “cryptocurrncy token” could by tokenized the sensitive data and storing on a block chain by not damaging any sensitive data which related important transaction. Each token has a “marking” after finishing each transaction. This marks is an unique code and related to specific transaction but not included its sensitive data. This could be enhance the safeness in each cryptocurrenycy transaction trading payment.
Energy: Probably one of the most popular use of Blockchain technology in the modern world. The fact is that energy is quite expensive and not enough, but it can be saved by obtaining energy from renewable sources (solar, wind, etc). Someone produces less than he needs and someone more than he actually needs. People began to create micro networks for the exchange and storage of the energy. But what does Blockchain have to do with it? The answer is quite simple, in order to maximize the rational use of the generated energy, they began to use Blockchain technology to see how much energy was consumed, at what hours, etc.
Each block in a blockchain network stores some information along with the hash of its previous block. A hash is a unique mathematical code which belongs to a specific block. If the information inside the block is modified, the hash of the block will be subject to modification too. The connection of blocks through unique hash keys is what makes blockchain secure.
There have been plenty of legitimate criticisms that the Initial Coin Offering model has made it too easy to get money for projects that may or may not ever produce a product. A large portion of them are based on endless promises of things they will do — and of course, in the marketing hype, we never hear about the roadblocks that will inevitably arise. A mere idea can achieve a remarkable market cap before it disappears without a trace.
True blockchain-led transformation of business and government, we believe, is still many years away. That’s because blockchain is not a “disruptive” technology, which can attack a traditional business model with a lower-cost solution and overtake incumbent firms quickly. Blockchain is a foundational technology: It has the potential to create new foundations for our economic and social systems. But while the impact will be enormous, it will take decades for blockchain to seep into our economic and social infrastructure. The process of adoption will be gradual and steady, not sudden, as waves of technological and institutional change gain momentum. That insight and its strategic implications are what we’ll explore in this article.
