Senator-elect aims to teach Congress about Bitcoin, what could we expect from such a move?
An incoming Senator believes bitcoin is a better store of value than paper money and plans to teach Congress how to use it to reduce the national debt. Senator-elect Cynthia Lummis told the What Bitcoin Did podcast that bitcoin is a better store of value than paper money and she plans to teach Congress how to use it to reduce the national debt when she assumes office in January. The senator, reportedly said, "If we reach the point where we have overspent so much that things start crashing down, the black swan event occurs with any regard to any fiat currency...there is a backstop available to every government in the world and that backstop is bitcoin," Lummis said. The senator-elect also said that bitcoin is a better store of value than paper money because the cryptocurrency's supply is finite. Bitcoin is indeed the currency of the 21st century, gone is the era of plastic money which has several flaws (e.g. being centralized and traceable). The Blockchain has several innovative dapps like online decentralized casino, EarnBet which seeks to overthrow traditional casinos, Chain-link which has untamperable oracle services, and best of all, Ethereum which allows developers to create an app using its technology. Recently, even Coca-Cola expressed an interest in using its mainnet, showing its untapped potential and massive application. Lastly, bitcoin is inflation-proof and there is a direct correlation between an economy's inflation and the use of cryptocurrencies. For example, a decent population of Venezuela uses cryptocurrencies as they have finally realized how 'redundant' fiat is and inflation can distort is function of acting as money, i.e. serving as a store of value. The pump is only getting started! Source: https://markets.businessinsider.com/currencies/news/senator-elect-cynthia-lummis-bitcoin-store-value-paper-money-congress-debt-2020-12-1029894839
I deleted my small update post from a few days ago and rolled it into this one. All info can be found on Aruba.com. I give the mods permission to delete this and repost it in a better format if they choose Below is info info released over the past few days. THE IMPORTANT UPDATES: Beginning November 1, 2020, the classification of U.S. “hot spot” states will no longer be in effect. As such, as part of the required online Embarkation/ Disembarkation card process, residents of all 50 states will now have the option to take a PCR test upon arrival at the airport in Aruba as well as the option to provide a certified negative test result prior to travel to Aruba. Until November 1, 2020, however, travelers in designated “hot spot” states will still need to comply with the PCR testing requirements prior to travel. Also beginning November 1st, the Aruba Insurance for tourists will be a flats fee of $30 for those 14 and up and $10 flat fee for those under 14. No more $15/day and weekly incremental decline in amount. MORE COUNTRIES PERMITTED UPDATE: South America : Beginning December 1, 2020, travel will be permitted from all South American countries, with the exception of Venezuela. Central America : Beginning December 1st, 2020, travel will be permitted from all Central American countries. The Caribbean : Beginning December 1st, 2020, travel will be permitted from all Caribbean countries and now include the Dominican Republic & Haiti Stuff from my previous post: The curfew that has been in effect will no longer be active. An “area ban” from 12am to 5am in the beach areas/zones has been introduced. This means no one on the beach from Midnight to 5am Bingo games can only be played via television or radio where crowds will not be formed or encouraged. At casinos Bingo is not yet permitted. Establishments are permitted to have ‘ambient music’ performed by a maximum of 3 musicians under the established guidelines. Curacao and Bonaire are no longer be required to have COVID-19 testing, quarantine or insurance. Aruba is considered a low risk country to Curaçao and according to the Bonaire tourism website, you need to quarantine upon arrival. I can’t read the press releases because they are in Dutch or Papiamento.
[Resumen Semanal XII] Los bonos de Guzmán y el impuesto al viento | USD a 172
Hola, y bienvenidos al Resumen Semanal de noticias Número 12, correspondiente a la segunda semana de noviembre de 2020. Antes de comenzar queremos agradecer a Osvaldo por esos cafecitos. TL;DR: video en youtube. SÁBADO:
Argentina compró 22 millones de dosis de la vacuna de AstraZeneca/Oxford contra el COVID-19. Así lo confirmaron autoridades del laboratorio. Las dosis llegarán al país en el primer semestre de 2021 y se suman a las 25 millones de dosis de la Sputnik V.
Declararon prescrita la causa por abusos sexuales en el instituto Próvolo de La Plata. El sacerdote italiano Nicola Corradi, condenado a 42 años por los abusos en Mendoza, era uno de los imputados. La Justicia hizo lugar a un pedido de la defensa de otro imputado en aquella ciudad. Antes de los hechos en Mendoza, el cura italiano había sido denunciado en La Plata y en Verona.
Con apoyo opositor, se realizó el octavo banderazo contra el Gobierno. La concentración mostró presencia de distintos sectores de la sociedad y la producción. Con la consigna "libertad, justicia y Constitución", el banderazo ratificó el rechazo de una porción activa de la sociedad al avance del kirchnerismo duro en las medidas de gobierno.
En busca de la aceptación de una vacuna no aprobada Carla Vizzotti afirmó: "Podría sumar que haya famosos que se vacunen para generar confianza". La secretaria de Acceso a la Salud, Carla Vizzotti, blanqueó en una entrevista con Romina Manguel que el Gobierno evalúa la posibilidad de utilizar a influencers para que la sociedad argentina tenga más confianza en las vacunas experimentales para combatir el coronavirus.
Sin ASPO, ni Dispo para despedir a Evo Morales, Alberto Fernández cenó con 15 personas sin distanciamiento social ni barbijo. Esta imprudencia le costó al presidente permanecer en aislamiento dado que, Gustavo Beliz, secretario de Asuntos Estratégicos de la Presidencia de la Nación Argentina y comensal de la despedida, dio positivo para covid 19.
Luego de presentar su flota de aviones en Brasil y el proyecto para replicarla en México, Marcos Galperin obtuvo el permiso para competir con los bancos en el país limítrofe. Mercadolibre, el unicornio fundado por el empresario argentino, radicado en Uruguay, contará con mayor autonomía para formular productos y servicios financieros y crediticios.
El Gobierno pedirá al FMI más plazo para devolver el crédito y aceptará apurar el ajuste fiscal. Lo confirmó Martín Guzmán a agencias internacionales. Con este programa se pagarán el crédito anterior por US$ 44.000 millones. No se descarta el desembolso de una suma que podría ir entre los USD 5.000 y 8.000 millones por parte del fondo.
Los alquileres porteños ya acumulan una suba del 52,3% en el año, el doble que la inflación. El precio promedio para el alquiler de un departamento medio de dos ambientes y 50 metros cuadrados se ubica en casi $29.000 por mes.
Para frenar la suba del dólar contado con liquidación, Martín Guzman, dolarizó $43.000 millones de deuda en pesos para dar salida a fondos extranjeros. Colocó USD 750 millones en bonos AL30 y AL35 del canje local a cambio de tres Ledes que vencen en diciembre, enero y febrero. En diciembre habrá otra subasta.
La inflación fue del 3,8% en octubre, la segunda más alta en américa latina superada sólo por Venezuela. La variación anual llega al 37,2% a pesar de tener tarifas congeladas. Los rubros que más aumentaron fueron la ropa con un 6,2% y los alimentos con el 4,8%.
La Justicia le devolvió a Cristina Kirchner la carta de San Martín y el prontuario de Yrigoyen hallados en un allanamiento en su casa. Los documentos fueron restituidos por el juez federal Marcelo Martínez De Giorgi luego del sobreseimiento de la vicepresidente.
El banderazo opositor en Bariloche tuvo manifestantes vestidos del Ku Klux Klan. Tres encapuchados se sumaron ayer a las manifestaciones que se concentraron en Bariloche, portando una gran jeringa de cartón y con jeringas sangrantes dibujadas en el pecho.
Daniel Gollan afirmó que "El 99% de la gente se quiere vacunar". El ministro de salud bonaerense remarcó la importancia de la vacuna contra el coronavirus para evitar la segunda ola de contagios y remarcó que cuando alguno de los fármacos consiga superar la fase 3 habrá que aprovechar el verano “para vacunar a la mayor cantidad de personas posible”. Finalmente agregó, “Los que no se quieran vacunar van a ser poquísimos, un grupo de gente irresponsable, ínfimo".
El Gobierno decidió arreglar el Tango 01 invirtiendo más de USD 12 millones. El avión presidencial, que estaría listo para mediados de 2021, está parado desde 2015 en la base de El Palomar. El arreglo se haría en la fábrica de aviones de Córdoba. Con las modificaciones, el avión podrá volar sin escalas a Estados Unidos o Europa. Actualmente se gastan más de USD 200 mil anuales para tareas de mantenimiento.
Los bonos emitidos por Martín Guzmán para enfriar el dólar contado con liquidación tendrán una tasa del 16,99%. Son tasas más altas que las que se pagaron a Hugo Chávez y mayores también a las del mega canje de 2001. Fue el costo de darle salida a fondos extranjeros y así intentar evitar una disparada del dólar.
Un hombre atacó con un cuchillo a dos mujeres en una escuela de danzas de Belgrano y un policía lo redujo de un disparo. Sebastián Damián Villareal, el agresor y alumno de la escuela, quedó detenido: fue imputado por el delito de lesiones graves agravadas por violencia de género en una causa a cargo del fiscal contravencional Miguel Kessler.
María Eugenia Bielsa deja el Ministerio de Hábitat y la reemplazará Jorge Ferraresi. Es la primera funcionaria en dejar el Gabinete de Alberto Fernández, luego de que se hiciera conocido el video donde afirmaba que el kirchnerismo robaba. Ferraresi, por su parte, es el intendente de Avellaneda y vicepresidente del Instituto Patria. Al asumir su cargo municipal, juró por su lealtad a Cristina de Kirchner.
La Cámara de Diputados aprobó la creación de un centro cultural chino bajo la supervisión del gobierno de Xi Jinping. La ley fue impulsada por el ex presidente Mauricio Macri en 2018. Se trata de un proyecto cultural auspiciado por el ministerio de Educación chino.
Explotó una bomba casera cerca de la vivienda de Mauricio Macri. Un artefacto de bajo poder explotó a media cuadra de la casa del expresidente Mauricio Macri, en la localidad bonaerense de Acassuso. Según fuentes policiales, el explosivo fue detonado dentro de un contenedor de basura pocos minutos después de las 18.
Camioneros bloquearon un tren de carga y se quedaron con el transporte de granos de Cargill en Colón. El presidente de CATAC, Ramón Jatip, habló con Canal Siete de Colón y explicó: “Nosotros expusimos ante Cargill que este cereal lo habían traído los camiones de Colón y es el que permitirá a los transportistas llegar hasta fin de año. No podían desconocer el sacrificio hecho durante pandemia de mandar los camiones a cargar a todos lados” y agregó “Hubo negociaciones y llegamos a un acuerdo. Nosotros planteamos que el cereal se lo llevan los camioneros de Colón que son quienes lo trajeron”.
El Gobierno descartó el pago de un cuarto bono de Anses de $10.000 por el momento, aunque no descartan que se pueda volver a implementar en un futuro. Martín Guzmán quien recibe a la misión del FMI para renegociar la deuda afirmó: "Hoy no es momento".
Frente al temor de que falten billetes para asistir a la demanda de fin de año, el gobierno ordenó la compra de una partida de 170 millones de billetes de $1.000 a la Casa de Moneda y Timbre de España. El costo de los billetes será de US$126,32 por cada 1000 unidades. También llegarán 400 millones de billetes de $1.000 desde Brasil.
Cristina Kirchner advirtió a la Rosada que no están los votos para aprobar el aborto. La Vicepresidente se enteró del envío del proyecto por televisión y, mientras en su espacio temen que le atribuyan la eventual derrota de la iniciativa, ven que el momento no sería el más oportuno.
Avanzan las conversaciones para estatizar el Parque de la Costa. Después de permanecer cerrado casi ocho meses y sin grandes perspectivas de cambio, el futuro del Parque de la Costa se parece cada vez más al del Tren de la Costa y podría terminar en manos estatales.
El Gobierno descongeló Precios Máximos y liberaron 50 productos. Originalmente el programa duraría 30 días pero con la continuidad de la “emergencia sanitaria”el congelamiento de precios fue prorrogado en formas sucesivas. Entre los productos afectados podemos encontrar, whiskys, licores, bebidas isotónicas y energizantes, maquillajes y cápsulas de café.
Ginés González García desautorizó por segunda vez a Carla Vizzotti. En esta ocasión lo hizo ante la posibilidad de vacunar a los artistas para que generen confianza en las aplicaciones de dosis contra el COVID-19.
Murió un perito de Gendarmería clave en la causa Nisman. Orlando Caballero, quien falleció por una neumonía bilateral que le produjo el coronavirus, era el jefe de Criminalística de dicha fuerza y afirmaba que al fiscal lo asesinaron.
Los casinos y bingos del AMBA volverán a abrir antes del 2021. En la Ciudad de Buenos Aires volvería el juego presencial el fin de semana y luego el online. Por su parte el gobernador Kicillof podría habilitar las salas a mediados de diciembre pero bloquea la discusión por el juego electrónico. De esta manera los distritos bonaerenses se sumarían a las 12 provincias con salas abiertas.
Santa Fe propuso una forma de cobrar impuestos a Netflix, Spotify y Mercado Libre. El proyecto de ley tributaria provincial incluye un artículo para extender ingresos brutos a la economía digital que también abarcaría a las apuestas online. La alícuota se descontará vía tarjetas de crédito y medios de pago.
Ante la suba de la inflación, el Banco Central elevó las tasas y los plazos fijos minoristas rendirán 37%. El Directorio del BCRA también subió dos puntos porcentuales las tasas de sus instrumentos de política monetaria, las Leliq y los pases. Recordemos que como parte de su promesa de campaña el ahora presidente Alberto Fernández había prometido dar un 20% de aumento a los jubilados con lo que dejaría de pagar en intereses de Leliqs. Los jubilados vieron derogada la cláusula gatillo que les otorgaba aumentos trimestrales basados en la inflación y ahora enfrentan una nueva reforma previsional que basaría sus aumentos en la recaudación fiscal.
Por errores en una planilla, el Senado devolverá el Presupuesto a Diputados. En una decisión que generó suspicacias sobre un enfrentamiento entre Cristina Kirchner y el presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, Sergio Massa, y con el ministro de Economía, Martín Guzmán, como testigo privilegiado en los palcos del recinto, el Senado devolverá a Diputados el proyecto de ley de Presupuesto Nacional para corregir los errores y omisiones registrados en la planilla de obras públicas previstas para el próximo ejercicio. Recordemos que por primera vez en la historia el jefe de la bancada oficialista de la cámara baja, Máximo Kirchner, no defendió el proyecto de ley.
Le usurparon un terreno y el juez se negó a desalojarlo porque tiene el pasto crecido. Unas 30 personas se asentaron ilegalmente en un lote de casi 6 hectáreas ubicado en Escobar. El fiscal Claudio Andjian pidió expulsar a los ocupantes; sin embargo, el juez Luciano Marino se negó. “El juez no dio lugar al desalojo basándose en un testigo, que es un preventor municipal, que dijo que el terreno tiene pastizales altos y que por tal motivo mostraba cierto abandono”, denunció su dueño.
La Corte Suprema confirmó que en enero habrá feria judicial. El período vacaciones estaba en duda en virtud de los meses en los que no hubo atención judicial por la cuarentena. Sin embargo los empleados judiciales gozarán de su licencia tradicional en el primer mes del año.
El Concejo Deliberante de Puerto Madryn creó el impuesto al viento. Desde enero, y según lo aprobado por los concejales esta semana, las empresas que tienen molinos de viento plantados en esa comarca deberán pagar una tasa municipal. La medida desató la alarma en el mundo de la energía renovable. El monto que se deberá pagar es de alrededor del 4,5% de la facturación.
Luego de las marchas peronistas por el día de la lealtad, el oficialismo organiza nuevas manifestaciones por el Día de la Militancia. La “caravana federal” esta vez sería en apoyo al presidente Alberto Fernández.
La Corte Suprema cerró la causa para que el Instituto Patria informara cómo se financia. El Máximo Tribunal rechazó el recurso extraordinario que habían presentado las autoridades de la Inspección General de Justicia durante la gestión de Mauricio Macri.
Luego de una caída 26 pesos en una semana del dólar libre que parecía haber controlado la cotización ilegal hace dos semanas el dólar blue subió $23 en tan sólo tres días y cerró la semana en $172.
Cerramos el resumen con los números de la pandemia:
67.564 nuevos contagios para llegar a 1.296.378 totales.
1.909 nuevos fallecidos para llegar a 35.045 totales.
28.587 casos por millón de habitantes.
773 fallecidos por millón de habitantes, superando a Chile en la estadística. De hecho mientras escribimos este resúmen con los datos del sábado también hemos superado a Brasil, pero no actualizamos el valor de la métrica ya que el resumen va de sábado a viernes.
Si les ha gustado este resumen les agradecemos por sus comentarios y compartidas. Como ya lo hemos dicho no hacemos esto con fines de lucro, pero si alguno quiere hacernos una donación por cafecitos será más que bienvenida. Muchas gracias por todo. Chao.

Haven't you tried playing at an online casino for real money yet? We guarantee you that it is an exceptional encounter. All you need is a trustworthy casino that you can deposit and play with while enjoying the experience. From GuiaCasino we show you the best real money casinos of 2020. What are you waiting for to try them? We bring you the best online casinos where you can play without having to download the casino program, that is, the best casinos without downloading. So you just have to open your browser and enjoy your favorite casino games. How to locate the best online casinos for genuine cash? This is a complex task and that is why from GuiaCasino we offer you a list of what we consider to be the best online casinos with real money for 2020. Surely now you are wondering how we have made that list, well, very simple, previously we have analyzed a series of basic elements to identify the best casinos. These are: License The first thing to check before opting for a certain online casino is if it has a license that allows it to offer its services as an online casino. If we are in Spain, they must have the license granted by the DGOJ, Directorate General for the Regulation of gambling. In the case of Colombia, this must be granted by Coljuegos, in Mexico by the DGJS and in Argentina this will depend on the province in which you are. In the case of Chile, it is the (SCJ) Superintendency of Gaming Casinos, the body in charge of the operation of the casinos. And if you are in Venezuela, it is the National Commission of Casino, Bingo Rooms and Slot Machines (CNC), which is in charge of legislating physical casinos, but online ones are in a kind of legal vacuum. Therefore, as you can see, the licenses depend on the specific country where you want to play. Security Another element that we check is the security of said casino, that is, that they carry out protocols at all times that ensure the protection of user data. That is why all the casinos that we recommend from GuiaCasino have an SSL encryption system, which guarantees both the privacy of your account, the protection of 100% of your banking and personal data. All these casinos, apart from their security, also demonstrate their transparency through the use of the RGN system, generation of random numbers, which ensures the transparency and randomness of the games that they make available to the user. In addition to having an admitted percentage of RTP, return to the player, that is, it has an indicator that shows that the return to the player is regularized. They also promote a form of responsible gambling, offering all the necessary help to users who experience gambling problems. In addition, all of them have a seal of "Responsible Gambling", " Safe Gambling " or another of the accreditations that prove this. Payment methods One of the most important elements, and of course we cannot forget to check, is the variety of payment methods they offer. Here depending on the country and the real money online casino you want to play in, the payment methods will vary a lot. Of course, there are some payment methods that most online casinos have from experience, these are: - Credit and charge cards : Visa , Mastercard and Maestro - Electronic wallets: PayPal , Payoneer, Neteller and Skrill . - Bank moves , among some others. Apart from the various forms of payment, another element that we also take into account is the time of both deposit and withdrawal of money. Where it must be said that they are 100% linked both to the selected form of payment, and to the real money online casino in which we are playing. Real money online casino bonuses In addition, we cannot forget the games or casino bonuses offered by online casinos with money, with the aim of attracting and retaining users. Here in particular we have to highlight bonuses such as the welcome, the no deposit bonus, the one you receive for bringing a friend, the loyalty bonus, among a great list more. All the real money casinos that we recommend from GuiaCasino, have a wide variety of them. Do you actually need to know more advantages? Online casino games for real money Another of the most important elements is the variety of casino games that they make available to the user to play. As a general rule, these usually have a wide variety of games, among which we highlight: Traditional card games like online blackjack, online poker, and baccarat. Other traditional casino games such as online roulette , bingo or keno. The new range of online slots . The modalities of live games. To the latter, it must be emphasized that live games in this type of casino is one of the modalities that is currently being received the most. Since it has all the advantages of face-to-face casinos, plus those of online casinos. Customer Service This is one of the basic elements of review, because when a user has problems, what they value the most is good customer service. So this is one of the key items on our checklist and we need to know the information about. Most of the online casinos with money that we recommend from GuiaCasino, have a customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, via chat, telephone and mail. Real money online casino software and graphics Another element to take into account in this type of online casino is its software providers, since these are responsible for the range of online games that each casino has. Some of the most popular are casinos like Microgaming , Merkur Gaming, Playtech, Pragmatic Play and NetEnt. And we cannot forget the design and graphics of dischos casinos, since they have to be 100% oriented to offer a pleasant user experience. That is to say, make the navigation of these simple and intuitive, always ensuring that they enjoy the experience to the fullest and do not encounter any kind of difficulty. Advantages of playing in a real money casino Next, we are going to show you all the advantages of this game mode: The experience and excitement you experience when betting real money.

The groundwork is now in play for us to develop a S. American Solution to space habitation. Doing so will require 3 projects in order to fully achieve a "sprint" at temporary dominance in space before N. American systems come online that must be compensated for. Achieving this has brought 3 distinct designs to be rapidly put into play following opening operations by the HX launch center in Venezuela.
La Paz Station (LEO [500-800km])
La Paz is being considered as a logical first step to S. American space exploitation as Skylab was to the moon landing. La Paz station has been designed as a logistics base in order to facilitate several key goals seen as being necessary for inter-solar activities:
orbital propellant depot
asteroid ore refinery
using asteroid ore to manufacture fuel and orbital construction materials to be sold in orbit
refining platinum group metal bullion to be sold on Earth
To help facilitate these needs, the station's design is set to incorporate a number of features. These being a large pressurizable free-fall garage to act as a spacecraft servicing and assembly area (similar to a drydock in most regards) situated next to an anti-radiation storm cellar to help keep the onboard crew safe from solar flares, radiation storms, or potential degradation of radiation shielding all being housed within a stationary central "stator". Around the garage will sit many tanks designed for water-trimming, air and fuel storage, and emergency escape capsule containers. Extending from the "mouth" of the garage is planned a set of robotic manipulator arms to help with docking efforts, the capture of payload, or general maintenance. Attached to the said stator is planned the habitation module of the station. Comprised of the centrifuge (designed to provide artificial gravity to the crew) it spans 100m with a spin of 3 RPMs used to simulate Earth-like gravity at 1 gee. This habitation module is counterweighted at the opposite end of the 100m length in order to provide stability to the station. To attach the centrifuge to the stator without causing unwanted friction a magnetic bearing is used. To help further provide stability to the station a long boom is planned (at the length of 350m) pointed directly down in order to tidally lock the station to Earth. To further alleviate stress on the station the centrifugal module is planned to stay in parallel to the station plane of orbit. Transfer of crew from station to the centrifugal habitation module is planned to make use of an airlock "pod". Said pod, being a pressurized capsule with docking hatches on both ends and riding a rail, will start docked from the stator. Once crew moving from the stator (or calling from the hab) are safely inside, the capsule detaches from the stator (after locking hatches ofc) and moves towards the centrifuge along the rail whilst at the same time beginning a spin to match speed with the centrifuge. Once the pod has reached the centrifuge hub it will have matched the spin and can easily dock with the hub, opening its hatchway to allow the crew to enter or exit the pod. On the lower end of the tidal boom, the entirety of which comprises most of the station's length is planned will sit the station's storage which will be used for both their intended purpose as well as acting as shielding for crew members against solar storms. Further up will sit a 4 solar panel arrays and a single array of radiators designed to provide the station with power and bleed off any unnecessary heat from the station. Being fully enclosed, this will allow for the crew to move around the stations lower length performing maintenance, scientific experiments at labs, component assembly, or utilizing onboard electric forges to process raw materials. The upper end of the boom will mostly only consist of an open truss with enclosed sections of the stator only enclosing a portion of its length and a portion towards the end similarly enclosed. Movement between the two sections will be achieved via a rail system with an airlock present at both ends as well as the top of the boom. This will crew/payloads to be transferred up the length of the boom and deployed into higher orbits utilizing the station as a refueling/assembly point. Similarly, at the bottom of the boom is planned an airlock and a skyhook (of sorts). Whilst, not a true skyhook as to pluck craft from deep atmosphere and suffering from some of the same problems, it will allow craft/payloads arriving at the station to expend far lest propulsive mass in order to achieve orbit with the station. To compensate for the loss of momentum from such an act a series of ionic thrusters are planned at the bottom of the station to be used to help prevent the station from simply falling into the atmosphere (as well as such corrections not relating to a skyhook). While the station's primary goal has it facilitating astroid mining, it runs into a rather paradoxical issue in that asteroid mining won't exist until such a facility is in place and a facility won't be in place unless there is asteroid mining in need of it. To help compensate for this, the station will primarily be used (in the first phase) to assemble, deploy, and maintain satellites and craft looking to leave earth orbit. Once asteroid mining as the industry comes into its own, then the station's functions will transfer over to material processing and shipping. Altogether a total crew capacity of 20-30 is planned with options for later expansion of crew facilities.
Lima 1 (LEO[600 KM])
Lima Station is in of themself, designed to fully commercialize space the public and provide those willing and wanting to experience space as a luxury the chance to as well as provide ample room for scientific experimentation and development. Lima 1 is designed to incorporate four distinct elements into its construction the Gateway, the Central Port, The Inner Ring, and the Outer Ring. Each provides a certain function to Lima 1 and together form the next and first generation of S. American Space Habitation. The Gateway is, in itself, to Lima 1 as a deck is to an aircraft carrier (but in a vacuum) and is designed to facilitate the transfer of shuttlecraft to and from the station. The Gateway holds an unpressurized volume greater than 270,000m3 with approximately 10 total airlock gates, 8 cargo airlocks, and 14 active bay pads (used to move shuttle craft around the Gateway). The bay will be the first constructed area of Lima 1 supporting and facilitating building the rest of the structure. The next is the Central Port. The Central port is designed to be the business heart of Lima 1. It is here that Lima 1's administration, control room, storage, viewing areas, environmental processing, and Gateway will be located. Designed to house 50 crew with a width of 152m and depth of 76m the Central Port has a total pressurized volume greater than 1.1 million m3. Built second to the Gateway, this section will officially allow for economic/solar operations to begin on the station allowing our personnel to get a feel for the station and test the design before full operations and expansion go into effect. The Inner Ring is designed to accommodate the first of those willing to take a vacation into space as well as allow our scientists access to microgravity experimentation. Producing 20% of earth gravity via centrifugal spin, the Inner ring the planned features will include such areas as a large open-air gymnasium, a Japanese style garden, a fabulous destination hotel, a food court with restaurants, a band stage for concerts, and a casino. However, this won't just be an exercise in luxury as part of the garden will be situated for vertical farming in order to allow our scientists to better understand and design solutions around farming in micro-gravity. The hotel itself will feature several sound-proof hotel rooms allowing the best sleep in microgravity that can be achieved. Under the guest rooms, a series of hangers housing escape vehicles are planned to give guests to the station the best sense of security possible while enjoying their stay. While guests to the station might have a lot of fun playing around in the inner ring, areas will be designated to the sciences allowing our scientists and engineers to experience, plan, and test in micro-gravity on a scale not normally afforded to other scientific teams around the globe. The width of this disk is slatted at 304m with a depth of 76m which narrows to 45 m at the rim. Gross volume in the Ring is upwards of 3 million + m3 and planned guest rooms set to 300 with solar panel energy generation (along the outside of the ring) expected to achieve total energy output of 10.4 Mw. The final part of this station will be the Outer ring. Connected via one of four connecting tunnels the outer ring will produce 30% of earth gravity with spacious accommodations for upwards of 1000 residents for lease/rent. With a width of 488m, depth of 45 m, and height of 30 m the total gross volute of this outer ring is slatted at 2.23 million + m3 with similar solar power generation techniques pulling in approx. 45.7 Mw of energy. Building Lima 1 will happen in stages with the first 3 stages happening closer together with a final "proving" stage occurring 1 year after construction to nail down any issues that might arise before finally building the outer ring. During this time, occupancy of the Inner Ring will be kept to around 30% total occupancy and expanding to 100% after the proving stages are complete. After which a similar proving period will occur with the Outer Ring keeping occupancy to 30% before expanding that to 100%. Each station in of themselves, making use of industries and technologies either currently in development or having been developed within the last century, should be relative "cost-efficient" with a price tag for both coming in at $10 billion USD utilizing the HX launch system, taking into account cost for materials, and labor. Implementation times are as follows (with material stockpiling and manufacturing occurring within the 2 years period that the HX system comes online after the design phase): La Paz:
[Repost] PlayNANO - Let's show everyone what NANO is capable off!
(sorry for this repost, more details at the end) As some have said a couple of times in the last months, NANO is great, but it lacks a lot on adoption. There is no "Killer App" that makes users interested in NANO. It might be great, but if it's not used it won't succeed. Introducing PlayNANO PlayNANO it's an attempt at fixing this. On PlayNANO users will be able to earn Nano by completing all sorts of tasks; Play multiplayer games with friends and earn Nano for winning; Bet on multiple casino games; And lastly spend their Nano on all sorts of digital products. Oh and also, no account or login required! See why Nano is the best crypto, with fee-less and instant use cases. Earn, play, bet, and spend - no account or login required. I might not be the first doing something like this, but I'm aiming for better than what we have now.
First - it will be for-profit. I love this community and a lot of the projects built, especially in the last couple of weeks. But most of them aren't for profit, nor targeted towards the end-user, and if we keep on making projects that don't generate money, we won't have the means to reach the masses. Many say the "Feeless, instant, green" markets for itself - I don't think I agree - that sentence won't reach the ears of many people unless it's paid to get there.
Second - there is an affiliate program, for the same reason - because people are much more willing to share if there's money involved. On PlayNANO you'll be able to earn 1% of everything your referrals earn. (approx. 30% commission)
Third - I've made the effort to focus on UI and UX. As many might have noticed the last couple of weeks, we have great developers, that build awesome things, but we are lacking in the user experience, which nowadays it's so necessary.
PlayNANO's Roulette Play the European Roulette with Nano - fee-less and instant as Crypto should be! My favorite feature so far, a provably fair multiplayer roulette. Instant betting and very quick payouts - sometimes you even get your payout before the roulette stops spinning! (and yeah, I'm gonna leave this as a feature to showcase the power of NANO xD) With this multiplayer roulette, you are not betting alone, you will also see other players bets on the table, for a more fun and immersive experience. And it uses a provably fair system to make sure that all numbers/spins are fair and can't be manipulated by anyone. PlayNANO's Jumper I've also created Jumper - a simple game with simple rules, but there's space for great strategies! Each game starts with a 12 by 12 grid, and the objective of the game is to be the last one standing on the grid, by sweeping your opponents off. Compete with other players and earn NANO by sweeping them out of the game! Next steps This is the first release but I have got a lot planned for the future! Starting with a multiplayer Texas Holdem Poker feature; more games to be added to the Play section; more ways to earn Nano, and add way more prizes to the spend list. Quick FYI: I'm using a 400$/month server, with a GPU, to handle the heavy PoW generation. Within the last month my server has sent over 45.000 transactions, mostly due to the Earn - Watch Videos feature - which is getting quite popular on Venezuela, Indonesia, and Central Africa. So I don't think I'm in love with the future v21 PoW increase xD The end I'm not saying PlayNANO is the "Killer App" we need, but it's something. I intend to make a living out of it and use the profits to make Nano reach more people, whether through marketing, donations to the development fund, maybe help fund the next Build-Off competition, and/or other things. So go ahead and try it out, maybe show it to your friends to show how awesome Nano is ;) All feedback will be much appreciated. (Once again, for those who caught it, I'm sorry for the repost. I made this repost because last time I posted I was in a hurry, the post was not well-formatted, I made a mistake on the title, I didn't pick a good time to post, and all that made that post's exposure quite low. This is my do-over, won't do it again!)
Favor for the GTA Reddit of the day. Kudos to - www.wizardslots.com and various Redditors for input. I have removed those fields that are just for 'Land Based' as they should allow online gambling alright. Some have very odd laws and will need tested.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Cambodia – gambling is illegal for natives, but land-based gambling is legal for foreign visitors
Cayman Islands – land-based gambling is illegal, and online local casinos are banned, whereas foreign slots are not
Cyprus – online sports betting ok with a license
Czech Republic – majority of online gambling is illegal (except online lottery and online sports betting)
Greece – some online gambling is illegal
Iceland – online casino gambling and online poker illegal – offline gambling is legal
Luxembourg – illegal online other than sports betting and online lottery
Mali – only legal for foreign visitors
Malta - gambling services need a license from the government, this is up to R* to apply for
Malaysia - note: seems to work for some and not for others. No clear reasons why so far.
Poland – everything but online sports betting is illegal
Portugal - gambling services need a license from the government, this is up to R* to apply for
South Africa - online gambling is illegal
Thailand - everything but Horse Racing and the Government Lotto
United Arab Emirates
Notable edits - Originally the USA was added to this, it is illegal to gamble in Hawaii and Utah for example but the casino seems to function as normal there. There are a few countries as well that have gambling laws but again GTA's seems to duck underneath these. I'm not an enforcer of the law, nor am I a solicitor but common sense would lead me to say if GTA is allowing you to do it then you shouldn't have to worry about anything. If you cannot access the Casino games, VPN's are a known work around but this could net you in trouble. I won't be assisting players on where to find those (various comments have so far) but be warned it is to be used at your own discretion.
The lavish elegance we all know of a Las Vegas casino resists dying, even though online casinos have dominated the betting industry for over a decade now. Although until a couple of years ago cryptocurrencies were not known to most people, the truth is that today they are becoming popular and more accessible to the public domain. This is the case in countries such as Venezuela, which are adapting to the latest technology with the creation of a special currency and, in addition, making available to the population a casino that accepts them. And it is that crypto casinos seem to set the tone from now on. However, it must be clarified that to be a "crypto casino" is not only enough to accept cryptocurrencies, but must have Blockchain technology, that is, to assure its users that these are transactions 100% transparent and in which they take maximum care of their financial security, as is the case of Earnbet. Therefore, these casinos, rather than offering a service, establish a committed relationship with the players.
This article is still available online at this point: Sensei's World Benjamin Fulford, David Whelan, 09.06.04 Soka Gakkai, a strikingly wealthy Japanese sect, tries again for U.S. glory with a splendid new campus. Daisaku Ikeda's unaccountable empire can thank lax treatment of the nonprofit world. Walk the hilly campus of Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo, Calif. and you enter the fabulous world of the international nonprofit. The three-year-old school has so far put about $300 million into its 103 suburban Orange County acres, and this is still a work in progress. As of this fall, only 400 students will meander among the rich, Romanesque architecture. The primary benefactor of Soka U is a controversial offshoot of Japanese Buddhism called Soka Gakkai, headed for 44 years by the sometimes messianic and persistently self-aggrandizing Daisaku Ikeda. But significant secondary support comes from favorable tax treatment in Japan, the U.S. and around the globe, just as enjoyed by other philanthropies big and small. In the U.S. the nonprofit sector is spending $875 billion a year and employs 9% of the work force yet has precious little accountability, other than the public financial statements required of most charities. Religious entities don't even have that degree of accountability. They enjoy all the benefits of tax exemption without any requirement that they say what they are up to. Soka Gakkai is a shadowy case in point. Ikeda, now 76 and president of Soka Gakkai International, the sect's global umbrella, claims 12 million followers and has amassed an empire that was put at $100 billion by a Japanese parliamentarian a decade ago. (The sect says that's wrong but otherwise won't comment on its finances.) A nasty split from Nichiren Buddhists set off a cycle of alleged violence, blackmail and intimidation. Soka Gakkai members in Japan have been charged with illegal wiretapping and breaking into private databases. The sect says it has nothing to do with those activities, noting that its ranks include nearly 10% of all Japanese. But yet-darker allegations have been made (see box, p. 130). Soka Gakkai (literally, "value-creating society") brings in, conservatively, $1.5 billion a year to the top line, according to our best estimates of its membership, its tithing demands and its commercial activities. Most of that revenue is collected in Japan, where the sect sells its flock funeral plots, assorted religious paraphernalia and a newspaper (5.5 million subscribers). The group's far-flung international assets include estates in France and the U.K. In gilded Santa Monica, Calif. a Soka-owned office high- rise and auditorium sit across Wilshire Boulevard from each other, near the town's beach. In the nearby hills a Soka affiliate holds the King Gillette Ranch-- which was used for footage of "Tara" in the film Gone with the Wind. A thousand spiritual centers worldwide include a site worth $6 million near New York City's Union Square. In wealth and claimed following, Soka Gakkai exceeds more familiar sects such as Hare Krishna, the church of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon and today's hippest (Madonna, etc.) group, members of the Kabbalah Centre. In the U.S. a church can lose its federal tax exemption for getting into politics. Soka managed to get around a similar restriction in Japan, where Ikeda has built up a political party, New Komeito, that helps the long-governing Liberal Democrats hold power. Soka University of Japan opened in 1971. Soka University of America, first established in 1987 on what is now a graduate campus in Calabasas, Calif., near Malibu, recently obtained preaccreditation for its undergraduate program from an outfit certified by the U.S. Education Department. A parallel process that will cover graduate students also is moving forward. The preaccreditation means that for the past year American undergrads at Soka U--which reported to the IRS that its assets exceed $740 million--have been eligible to obtain up to $23,000 in federal Stafford loans over the course of their education. Needy recipients can get up to an additional $4,000 a year in Pell Grants. What are Ikeda's aims? Five years after gaining command of Soka Gakkai, he told a Japanese writer: "I am the king of Japan; I am its president; I am the master of its spiritual life; I am the supreme power who entirely directs its intellectual culture." In the years since, "world peace" has been the sect's mantra. New Komeito promotes pacifism in Japan. Representatives of the sect have worked the UN and other official venues touting international harmony and goodwill--and usually Ikeda. Followers mount a traveling show equating him with Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. In the sect's 1,000 meeting halls Soka members exercise the "life-enhancing" power of chanting. Believers are encouraged to be "many in body, one in mind." This means "You have to make sensei's [teacher's] heart your own. You have to fulfill [Ikeda's] dreams instead of your own," maintains Lisa Jones, a former aide and follower who ghostwrote an Ikeda book and now maintains a Soka-doubter Web site. "His dream is kosen-rufu, or what Soka members call ‘world peace,' which will be achieved when one third of the world chants, one third merely celebrates Ikeda, and the other third doesn't care," she says. A Soka bid for favor in the U.S. a generation ago, drawing on the era's culture clash and some affiliated celebrities, attracted unwelcome press, and the sect receded a bit. But it has never given up efforts to establish legitimacy and further Ikeda's vision. He founded the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century in a 13,000-square-foot Georgian building next to Harvard University. Ikeda has enticed Mikhail Gorbachev and Henry Kissinger into numerous discussions. He also met with historian Arnold Toynbee, double Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling and civil rights figure Rosa Parks (Soka's U.S. arm boasts a sizable black membership). Some of the conversations with luminaries have been published and sold. More idealistic or benign than sinister and manipulative? The veil that surrounds the nonprofit world, especially religions, ensures that only the outlines are visible. Soka University files an IRS form; the organization behind it doesn't. Congress is training its sights anew on nonprofits. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, held hearings in June on tax-exempt abuses. "Far too many charities have broken the understood covenant between the taxpayers and nonprofits," he said. He was angered by local news reports about the looting of family foundations. On Aug. 10 the Internal Revenue Service promised to increase from 230 to 300 the agents it assigns to nonprofit entities. This tiny crew is supposed to take on 1.6 million tax-exempt organizations and an estimated 400,000 additional religious groups that do not have to submit annual tax forms to the IRS. Investigations are typically initiated only in response to complaints. Exceptions to this passive role include the IRS' decades-long losing war with the Church of Scientology. In the post-Sept. 11 era some Muslim groups have come under scrutiny for ties to terrorism. The Department of Justice recently prosecuted the former head of the American Muslim Council and indicted seven leaders of the Dallas-based Holy Land Foundation. But unless you're tied into terror, you can shout from the rooftops and no one is likely to come looking at your books. "Every revenue agent you assign to a corporate tax return will generate millions of dollars. Every [revenue agent] you assign to a tax-exempt one may not pay his own salary," says Marcus Owens, who headed the IRS' Exempt Organizations division from 1990 to 2000 and is now a private Washington attorney. So the Ikeda-related wealth here is virtually untouchable. In Japan, Soka has not only its 8,000-student university but also its enhanced political power. At least 20% of the Liberal Democrat deputies could have lost without the support of Soka followers last October, enough to give the opposition Democratic Party a plurality in the Diet. "It's like becoming addicted to amphetamines," says Katsuei Hirasawa, an LDP member of parliament, of his party's link with Komeito. In a July op-ed in the Asahi newspaper, Koji Ishimura, a professor of tax law at Hakuho University, argued that Soka's political activities were an abuse of its status as a religion. "The influence of a ruling party that relies on a specific religion's organization to form its power base is growing stronger," wrote Ishimura, who called for Soka's donations to be taxed. Ikeda established his fundraising prowess early on. According to University of North Carolina professor James White, who wrote a book about Soka, Ikeda threw a scare into the Japanese insurance industry in the 1960s in a crash four-day drive for a key temple at Mount Fuji. Record sums were raised, with some members cashing in life policies to help. Soka's initial U.S. academic beachhead in rustic Calabasas met with bustle-wary neighbors. After an extended development fight, the 660 acres today may be home to only half a dozen linguistics students destined for jobs as language instructors for Japanese Soka emissaries. The action shifted to Aliso Viejo in 2001, with promises of a nonsectarian institution with a first-rate library and renowned secular faculty. The new master-planned community was accommodating. Campus athletic and arts attractions, as well as the library, were open to the public. Popular U.S. author Joe McGinniss was a notable instructor hire. But reality began to kick in when McGinniss and others complained of interference from on high. Several staff have left--McGinniss' contract wasn't renewed--and one sued. Another filed for arbitration and lost. Earnest university officials are at pains to showcase an arts-and-letters idyll devoted to the betterment of mankind. Soka U insists it is an independent, nonsectarian school not even as religiously influenced as, say, Brigham Young or Notre Dame universities. But at least a majority of Soka U's trustees have direct Soka Gakkai connections. Today 70% of matriculants are Soka Gakkai members. Some secular faculty felt squeezed. The university was sued in 2002 by Linda Southwell, a fired fine arts professor. Her complaint disputed a "commitment to rigorous academic endeavor, free and open dialogue, and an appreciation for human diversity" when "in reality the curriculum is intended to reflect cult beliefs and perspectives" and speech and association are limited. She also claimed Soka members were favored faculty. Soka University settled the discrimination and wrongful termination in a "satisfactory" manner that included a confidentiality clause, Southwell's lawyer Brian Glicker says. Another professor, who quit her "frightening" job, begs off discussing the specifics of her beef. Glicker maintains he's heard from several other non-Soka Gakkai International staff members. "Many or most non-SGI staff or faculty are at least considering leaving," says one disaffected professor. "The university was only able to hire 7 or 8 of the 21 faculty it tried to hire." University officials say they'd not heard this and attribute departures to the growing pains of a new school. They claim an 81% retention rate. An initial goal of 1,200 students remains a ways off. Has the academic friction been a roadblock? The university says more hiring and building await full accreditation, which it expects soon. On campus, the image is of serenity and strength. The buildings use the same stone featured in the Colosseum in Rome. Ikeda insisted on using it because he intends his university to last 2,000 years, a Soka U spokesman explains. The campus also sports a security camera network rivaling that of any casino. The university includes a sizable "guest house" and a larger "athenaeum" overlooking a regional park. The sumptuous residence is set aside for VIPs, such as, in the words of one university official, "the president of Venezuela or Daisaku Ikeda." It has ornate furniture, a portrait of Ikeda and many artworks, all covered in white cloth until the VIPs show. The undergraduate catalog says that "as leaders and decision makers," Soka's graduates "will be guided by the ideal of a contributive life, a humanistic approach drawn from Buddhist thought." But Soka Gakkai newspapers and other publications, filling a prominent shelf in the Soka University library--named for Ikeda--all feature Ikeda's interpretations of Buddhism: To wit, achieve world peace and democracy by becoming one in Soka and chanting. The university notes it also has other Buddhist texts. Like other students approached at Aliso Viejo, Fabiana Sanchez, 21, a senior and a Soka Gakkai member, says she wants to do something for society or peace. She plans to return to her native Venezuela upon graduation and get involved in some sort of work "linking education and politics." Soka U denies a rumor that the aging sensei plans a visit soon to his American academic citadel. Succession at the sect's helm is uncertain: Two sons are vice presidents in Soka but the sect denies a hereditary rule. Meanwhile the tax-favored billions continue to roll in, almost entirely outside the purview of authorities anywhere. Chant of the Faithful Prominent believers in Soka Gakkai include Mariane Pearl, the widow of murdered journalists Daniel Pearl, jazz musician Herbie Hancock and Patrick Duffy of Dallas Tv show fame. Singer Tina Turner was identified with Soka Gakkai in years past, but her spokesman would not confirm an association.
As of this fall, only 400 students will meander among the rich, Romanesque architecture.
They're still only having around that many students, and here we are, over 15 years after that article was written. Part of it is that Soka U rejects a large number of applicants because doing so creates a metric that is used to indicate "exclusivity" by ranking agencies. Will Soka U ever reach its goal of a 1,200-strong student body? My sources say No.
The sect says that's wrong but otherwise won't comment on its finances.
That's exactly the kind of criticism we get here from the SGI crusaders who pop in - they'll say "That's wrong" but never provide any documentation or even explanation as to why. We're expected to change everything on the basis of their "That's wrong". That's more of that "entitlement mentality" we were recently talking about.
the Ikeda-related wealth here is virtually untouchable
There is no financial transparency, no independent audits, no oversight by any outside agency. Remember that any time any SGI promoter talks about having reviewed their financials - never gonna happen.
efforts to establish legitimacy and further Ikeda's vision. He founded the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century
In the U.S. a church can lose its federal tax exemption for getting into politics.
This is why Ikeda forbade the overseas organizations from forming their own "Komeito" political parties back in the 1970s. That ban remains in place.
Ikeda insisted on using it because he intends his university to last 2,000 years, a Soka U spokesman explains.
Oh more of this grandiose blather. Ikeda just loves talking in multiple thousands of years. The Sho-Hondo was supposed to last 10,000 years, if anyone remembers. Where's your Sho-Hondo now, Scamsei?? Ikeda apparently thinks talking in large terms will make him larger than life.
The sumptuous residence is set aside for VIPs, such as, in the words of one university official, "the president of Venezuela or Daisaku Ikeda."
It's just another "Ikeda House" (so of course it's "sumptuous", since it's for Scamsei) but they have to make it sound like it's more than just a private residence for Ikeda, because that will get them in trouble with nonprofit laws in this country. I'm betting NO ONE has ever stayed in it, since that was after Ikeda stopped traveling.
Singer Tina Turner was identified with Soka Gakkai in years past, but her spokesman would not confirm an association.
Ms. Turner isn't about to alienate any category of potential fans.
Change my mind: Gambling dApps are never going away.
My take I own several percentages of various gambling dApps and I have a long-term investment horizon. I see the entire online gambling industry — someday — operating on blockchain technology. Much to the dismay of many people, I don't think gambling dApps are going away... My rationale being that people are not going to stop gambling any time soon and ever since blockchain happened, we now have a way of creating the first actually trustworthy gambling platforms. We can now make online casinos that are demonstrably, provably (with cryptography and open-source software) not cheating. By some estimations, the global online gambling and betting market will surpass US$ 123.5 billion by 2026. Imagine that kind of money, even half of it, flowing into crypto. If you own a single percentage of a popular online gambling platform (and if you're smart enough to not actually gambling all of it way, instead, reinvesting it in the market.) it will be lucrative. In the future, you could potentially live off of the dividends. Let's talk investment strategies and diversification. I am not only diversifying in terms of having money in the bank, in various stocks, in cash, and in crypto... I am also looking at my investment strategy and the overall frame of mind from which I am investing. Let me elaborate on that. A lot of people will look at the stock market and start investing from a point of view of altruism and high optimism about the world and its future development. Many doing so have invested in various renewable energy companies. Many have lost incredible amounts of money doing so. I have actually owned stock in First Solar and SunPower, on and off. I believe it's all about timing and a lot of the people investing in solar companies in the nineties and noughties actually had the right idea, but simply mistimed it. Once there is an energy revolution, once we stop using coal and oil all-together, then the alternative energy companies will thrive and stocks will go up in value. Investment in the EOS ecosystem of dApps with an altruistic strategy:
Karma - making a social network themed around and influencing more charitable acts.
Metal Packaging Token (MPT) - Incentivizing the packaging industry to use less plastic.
Crypto Peso (PSO) - Fixing the horrible economic problems in Venezuela.
Literally, anything that wants to make a positive impact on the world.
There is a case to make for altruistic investment strategies, if the world is actually moving in that direction, at that time. Hedge your altruism Oppositely, you can hedge your bets on the altruism by investing in any (well-run) company that fit into the 7 Deadly Sins (7DS) framework.
Greed - guess where gambling dApps are located.
Whereas gambling dApps actually can have a noble cause or two, (giving to charity, giving transparency to an otherwise black-boxed industry) the gambling and association to addiction and people destroying their lives... that rubs off and makes them seem "dirty". In the same way that many people wouldn't want to wear a sweater if told Hitler used to own it. Recession-proof? Some refer to these as the "sinful industries" of which several actually thrive during a recession. People seem to go a little crazy once recession hits. Well, they definitely don't cut back on tobacco, alcohol, fast-food, etc. instead, they get more frivolous and approach life with a "fuck it" attitude. Spending less on big things and in turn spending more on smaller products that momentarily numb them from experiencing the harsh reality; giving into their vices. Interestingly, regular casinos do seem to suffer, even greatly so, under a recession... [link] but the online casinos don't seem to suffer at all. [link] Summary Maybe you believe we are heading into a recession, even a global panic. We have seen the craziness in Venezuela... We have a huge amount of political turmoil that some people believe could even ignite something akin to a civil war in America. One can easily make the case that perhaps the world is going to get worse before it gets better. Let's hope not... but let's at least make a profit if the world does go to shit. Hedge your altruism by investing in the guilty pleasures. Change my mind. Who cares, EOS is going to the moon baby! I'm rich! Parsl 4 life! https://www.parsl.co/s/Parsl-Whitepaper-v2.pdf
