Bitcoin news: Bitcoin (BTC) is known as the first open-source, peer-to-peer, digital cryptocurrency that was developed and released by a group of unknown independent programmers named Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. Cryptocoin doesn’t have any centralized server used for its issuing, transactions and storing, as it uses a distributed network public database technology named blockchain, which requires an electronic signature and is supported by a proof-of-work protocol to provide the security and legitimacy of money transactions. The issuing of Bitcoin is done by users with mining capabilities and is limited to 21 million coins. Currently, Bitcoin’s market cap surpasses $138 billion and this is the most popular kind of digital currency. Buying and selling cryptocurrency is available through special Bitcoin exchange platforms or ATMs.

Cryptos SingularityNET Monthly Updates #1
Posted by: Decentralized Investor - 06-06-2018, 03:29 AM - Forum: Blawks - No Replies

Dear Singularitarian,
AI researchers at Google recently resigned in protest to call for an end to the autonomous weapons project that Google had started. Project Maven kicked off in April 2017 and has now led to an ill-timed identity crisis for the company. Across the world, big tech is hemorrhaging talent and bleeding very publicly. Akin to the good ol’ days of Big Tobacco, lawmakers and civil society groups are pushing back but it remains to be seen if well-crafted messaging campaigns and apologia tours can continue to fool them.
What does this have to do with us?

We believe that AI is too potent and powerful a technology to be firewalled by large centralized data monopolies. “Unintended Consequences” is not a phrase we want to recount to our grandchildren when they ask, “What went wrong?”.
A decentralized AI built by our team of talented engineers and developers is what we promised in our whitepaper. This update is the beginning of a series of newsletters where we’ll continue to share our milestones in furthering this vision and achieving our objectives and we will count on you, our community to help us co-create this future together.

Here's the TL;DR version


Leading with Tech
The Alpha has been redesigned to serve as a foundation for a scalable SingularityNET. In the past weeks we have pushed out code in batches and will continue to do so leading up to the Beta. We invite early adopters to have a look at our code repositories on Github and we highlight 6 of these repositories here.

Our wiki is the starting point for finding information to get started with the SingularityNET Alpha.

Use the SingularityNET CLI to interact with SingularityNET blockchain contracts and deployed services.

Alpha Blockchain
The Alpha Blockchain repo contains the smart contracts for running Agents and Services on the SingularityNET open network.

Alpha Daemon
The alpha implementation of SingularityNET daemon for hosting AI services on the SingularityNET decentralized network.

Alpha Service Example
This is an image classification service for use with the alphaimplementation of the SingularityNET daemon. This example captures how a service will be exposed to the network.

Alpha DApp
The SingularityNET Alpha DApp lets you interact with Agents registered on the Kovan network using the testnet AGI.

Seeding the Network
We are currently working on several Go-to-Market applications to seed the network and to secure AI service partners. We are focusing our efforts in the domains of social media analytics, network analytics, biomedical analytics in conjunction with Shivom and Mozi AI, agricultural analytics, social robotics in partnership with Hanson Robotics (presently being used experimentally with the Sophia robot), semantic image captioning and more.

The core AI technology behind Sophia will be accessible to all roboticists and engineers on SingularityNET, making SingularityNET the leader in social robotics services. All of these services are in use as prototypes today. Externally, we have received commitments from several of our partners to list their AI services on our network to support our market entry into China.

AI Research Lab
The AI Research Lab will give you insider access to the most exciting AI initiatives we have under development. We have already published some articles from our researchers, such as:
The AI Research Lab will be focussing on a number of research domains, such as:[/size]
  • OpenCog technology for powering robots like Sophia.
  • Semantic perception to explore neural-symbolic learning.
  • OfferNets which is a research program at SingularityNET that aims to research alternatives to currency-based exchanges.
  • Simulation models of the dynamics of a large and complex SingularityNET.
  • Reputation systems to develop a new consensus framework for AI service provider reputation, our so-called Proof of Reputation.
  • Grammar learning where OpenCog-based information-theoretic symbolic inference is combined with neural net based learning in various unique ways.
  • Diagnosis and understanding of crop diseases for better agriculture.
  • Longevity data analysis to discover the combinations of genetic variations for people who lived more than 110 years in order to better understand those variations and the roles they play in biological processes and different cellular components.
  • Meta-learning for inference control as probabilistic meta-learning is a key AGI component, ultimately leading to a system that can self-optimize its behavior.
We are moving the business forward by expanding to China and Korea. We have secured a space in Hong Kong’s East Tsim Sha Tsui district, which will serve as SingularityNET’s head office and as the central physical meeting-point for our globally distributed team.  Move-in is expected for early July. Additionally, in line with our push to expand our Asian presence, we have established a partnership with Seoul National University (one of Korea’s most prestigious and powerful educational and research institutions) and opened a modest office in Seoul, to be staffed as the year progresses and lead by Dr. Youngsook Park (Head of Millennium Project Korea).
Strategic Partnerships
SingularityNET and AI Decentralized announced the Decentralized AI Alliance (DAIA) on the 22nd of May 2018. DAIA is an open industry alliance that will foster the development of decentralized AI technologies. DAIA's number one goal is to provide a way for those in the field of AI and blockchain to stay coordinated and connected, increasing the odds that the democratic, decentralized software ecosystem plays a dominant role in the ongoing rise of AI. Read and talk more about DAIA here.
We have established core partnerships with several major projects that share our vision to decentralize and democratize AI technology. We will be announcing some of these new partnerships this month.
The SingularityNET team has grown fast and has more than 70 employees working full-time on making this vision a reality. You can view our team members on our team page.
We expect to increase our team size substantially in the next 12 months across all functions from tech to business development and marketing. Immediate positions in business development and marketing are open in our offices in Hong Kong, China and New York . Please reach out to Arif Khan, our VP of Marketing, at to express your interest. Job descriptions will be published shortly on our Community Forum.

Upcoming Events
If you would like to meet us in-person please register on the SingularityNET Community Forum to get an alert when we post it on the bulletin. Some of the upcoming events we will be present at are the ICT Expo Ethiopia, RISE, Humanity+ and Human Level AI 2018.
If you missed the in-person events, you can always join the community chat to catch-up, where we post and discuss videos like these below:
Thank you for your continued support.
To the Singularity and beyond,
Dr. Ben Goertzel
and the SingularityNET Team[/size]

Manna Supporters Launch Online Store

Check out MannaBasics, where now you can buy food and other essential products with Manna currency. was started as an independent initiative, not by the Mannabase team itself. We're proud that members of the Manna community are starting great projects like this. Several Mannabase employees have already bought food from this store and had it delivered – yum!

MannaBasics describes its mission: "to grow the use of Manna by making it possible to get a basic necessity with it – food. ... We only accept Manna as payment, and we sell our goods as close to cost as possible ... We believe everyone has a right to food – and the more people receive and use a basic income, the easier it will be to fulfill the vision of a world without want."

At this time, MannaBasics only delivers to customers in the United States. We encourage Manna supporters to create similar online stores around the world.

If you want to buy products with Manna and need more of the currencythan you receive as basic income, you can buy Manna on the marketRemember: Every time you buy and use Manna, you're helping Manna gain value and become a more legitimate currency – and you're increasing the value everyone receives as UBI.

Manna Team Starts Blog on Steemit

Steemit is a blogging platform where readers reward bloggers with cryptocurrency. Check out our new Steemit blog, where we write about the Manna project, Universal Basic Income, economics, blockchain, and related subjects.

Money we earn on Steemit will be used to support the price of Manna – so please start reading our blog and upvoting our articles!

Founders Interviewed on Video

Upcoming Events[/size]

Rapid Growth of Mannabase Continues!

We're up to 185,000 registered users, and growing at a rate of 1,000 to 2,000 new users per day. 90,000 people have gone through the full signup process to verify their account for UBI distributions.

With a user base this big and growing so fast, we're planning to build a lot more on Mannabase – to develop it into a platform for direct giving to targeted groups of people, nonprofit organizations, and creators like artists and musicians who deserve a basic income.

We'll be sharing more details of our business plan in the coming weeks. The UBI distributions are just the beginning... so stay tuned!

Thank you for your support for the Manna project![/size]

Cryptos Banano Coin Update! (Nano Fork) Fee-less Dag
Posted by: Decentralized Investor - 05-12-2018, 02:08 AM - Forum: Blawks - Replies (1)


It's been a while since we posted anything official on here so just checking in with you all. Most of you know the score from being active on discord (if you haven't already you should join our 8,000 members) but for the ones who don't use discord here's a little bit of what's been going on.
Our team has grown considerably in the recent weeks some are new some have been with us a while but I'll introduce them anyway.
* AJsharkk - Web Developer and the creator of our amazing new site
* Anemone - Meme historian aka the guy on the couch
* Bbedward - Creator and manager of our riggedbot erm I mean tipbot.
* Coranos - A coding wizard, currently implementing BANANO on the Nano ledger S.
* Fusha - Another coding genius, Fusha is our very own Colin.
* Jeshka - Created our Discord Faucet (release soon) and is now looking into building our very own exchange.
* Mitch - Game Developer, I'm sure you all know Mitch already.
* Morgan - Meme lord.
* Randomizer - Creator of monKey™ (stay tuned)
* Red - Part time genius, full time Alcoholic.
* Yekta - Leonardo Da Banano.
What's going off?
Things are still in the early stages but we have lots of ideas being put to good use and now we have a fully committed team it won't be long before you start hearing about the projects in more detail but I'll outline a few just to give you some juicy info to read but the rest is staying a secret.
First up the monKey™ - Randomizers superb and fun creation, Turn your account ID into a unique one of a kind monKey that nobody else will have but you. From different eye colours to funky accessories, designer clothing and facial expressions this monKey will be a visual representation of your account ID. You will be able to use this in all future Banano projects including using the monkey as a playable character on the Banano Runner game.
Then we have the Banano Nano Ledger S project by Coranos, this is almost ready to go and is already built into our web wallet. Coranos has put some great effort into this, fully coded from scratch including creating his own font just for the display and is now tying up the loose ends before sending it in for ledger review.
BBedward has created our Discord tipbot and is constantly upgrading and adding new features, Giveaway and Rain features are the most popular but he has just created a trading escrow feature to stop scammers and to provide a safe and secure way to trade Banano until we are on an exchange.
MeltingIce was kind enough to port over his Nano explorer to Banano, it's available now at and is full of useful and interesting information about the Banano network. I believe after some modifications we will be using this for our official explorer so get to know it!
Mitch has been continuously improving the Banano Runner game, we have had setback after setback but he never fails to let it beat him. A small minority of people like to try and abuse the system which causes headaches for us all but we manage to stop them every time. keep trying though guys Wink. The runners last event had over 13,000 players with a total of 20M+ Banano earned. The payments for security reasons are still manually checked and paid right now which is why we are currently having delays for the last events payment but don't worry we're working on processing them as fast as we can.
The vault has had a couple of upgrades, transactions are now shown in real time, no refreshing needed, you can now visualise the speed of Banano in all its glory. Plus now we allow you to manage 15 accounts under one seed!
Whats next?
We promised you the airdrop was going to be in May so our main priority is to get that distribution flowing, we had a LOT of people register for the airdrop so it's a difficult task to complete on our deadline but we are working full speed on this, we've even had to buy extra hardware to ensure it goes as smooth as possible. Don't worry if you missed the registration though, we have another back up airdrop planned for the guys who came late to the party.
Once we have that out of the way, we can consider looking at possible exchange listings. A lot of people are asking why we aren't doing that now but we believe it's pointless until the majority of distribution has taken place so that is our priority. As well as getting listed on an exchange we are going to also going to introduce our own exchange too. Bananograil, what could possibly go wrong? or maybe should we go for Bananex! but more on that later.
Oh and stay tuned for the yellow paper, we're a little behind on the deadline but I promise you it will be worth the wait!
