6 Tokens With a Low Distribution of Wealth

In the world of cryptocurrencies, fair distribution of wealth is a lot more difficult to come by in this day and age. An interesting statistic shows how there are plenty of projects whose majority of the token supply is held by just 20 wallets or less. That is quite worrisome, especially because several of these tokens pertain to exchanges. #6 Cortex Although some people might not know what Cortex is about, the company aims to bring artificial intelligence to blockchain technology. Their ultimate goal is to build a decentralized AI autonomous system. Unfortunately for the team, nearly 90% of its tokens are held by 20 wallets or less. That is far from a fair distribution, and it will be interesting to see if the team decides to address this specific issue anytime soon. #5 Kin Even though the Kin token sale has gotten a lot of attention, it seems the distribution to date is not necessarily going according to plan. With over 90% of its token controlled by 20 wallets or less, it would appear there are some major investors involved in Kin, although a better distribution could easily benefit this particular venture moving forward. #4 Cryptonex Cryptonex is a platform which seeks to facilitate access to the world of cryptocurrencies. Their platform allows users to buy and sell Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the native Cryptonex token. Unfortunately, it seems most of those tokens are controlled by 20 wallets or less. It is possible the biggest wallet will be associated with the platform itself, though, but it is still a slightly worrisome situation regardless. #3 KuCoin Shares Whenever exchanges began issuing their own tokens, there was a genuine concern as to how things would pan out in the long run. It is anything but surprising to see nearly 95% of KCS tokens being locked in just 20 wallets, as the token can only be traded on the KuCoin exchange itself. Even so, this lack of distribution seems to indicate there isn’t much interest in this token, for some unknown reason. #2 Veritaseum The business model envisioned by Veritaseum is pretty interesting. It allows for access to capital markets in the form of globally accessible software. Its native asset, on the other hand, can be found within 20 wallets or fewer right now. Over 95% of its tokens are stored in these wallets, indicating there is nearly no distribution taking place at this time. Changing that narrative will be a very big task. #1 Huobi Token Another exchange-issued token closes this list, which is only normal. Huobi Token is an asset native to the Huobi exchange, and it can only be sued in that regard. As such, it is fairly normal very few wallets have access to this token’s supply right now, although one would expect distribution to be a bit more fair, all things considered. Just 2% of its tokens are not owned by the top 20 wallets, which is a bit unusual, even for an exchange-issued token. The post 6 Tokens With a Low Distribution of Wealth appeared first on NullTX.

A neuroscientist who lost her mind says it can happen to anyone

You can be an expert on brains and spend 30 years studying mental disorders, and it still will not prepare you for your own madness. Expertise won’t explain why you no longer recognize your house or car, or why you’ve gone for a morning jog with a plastic bag full of purple henna on your head and have no idea where you are, even though this is your own neighborhood, your own streets, and these are the trees and flowers you pass every day. If anyone should have been able to recognize the changes in her own behavior and connect them to transformations in her brain, it was Barbara Lipska. As a neuroscientist and director of the Human Brain Collection Core at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland, Lipska has poked, prodded, examined, sliced, diced, and analyzed countless brains, trying to find the distinctions between sickness and health. Yet when she lost her own mind in 2015, Lipska didn’t know that things were going awry. Neither did her family of doctors. “We were completely oblivious to it,” she says. Now, Lipska has to check sometimes to make sure she’s thinking clearly. “I’m terrified. I won’t see it when it happens. I watch myself. I ask questions of my family,” she says. “Am I sane? Am I logical? Am I making sense? How would I know? It’s a terrifying experience.” Losing it You may never lose your mind, but there’s a good chance that you will have, or already have had, a mental-health issue at some point in your life. Anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress, psychosis, schizophrenia, are all common. In the US alone, one in every five adults, or more than 43 million people, experience mental illness in any given year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Worldwide, one in every four individuals will suffer from a mental health condition in their lives, according to an Oct. 9 report in The Lancet medical journal by 28 global experts. Yet few resources are devoted to this critical aspect of health, and the result is a global crisis—a “monumental loss in human capabilities” that will cost $16 trillion by 2030, according to the report. Because mental health services are “routinely worse than the quality of those for physical health...all countries can be thought of as developing countries” in this regard, write the global experts in The Lancet. Lipska believes the world can get better at treating mental illness. But as she explains in her book The Neuroscientist Who Lost Her Mind: My Tale of Madness and Recovery, published in April 2018, part of the solution lies in ceasing to distinguish between mental and physical problems. The neuroscientist wants the world to understand that mental illness is an organ malfunction, quite common and life threatening. In her book, she argues that we still judge brain malfunctions as if they are character deficits, reflections on a person’s value rather than the result of physical processes gone awry. Speaking with Lipska on Oct. 12, I asked her whether we will ever know the brain well enough to truly understand it. Can the mind ever comprehend the mind? It’s like the eye trying to see itself, after all. “Yes,” Lipska replies. “It won’t happen in my lifetime but we will someday understand the brain and then we’ll treat mental illness like the thing it is—physical illness that manifests in an extremely complex organ.” “No one is guilty because they’re mentally ill. It’s not their fault.” On this, Lipska is intent. From her perspective, “there is nothing metaphysical” about mental illness. The brain is not a simple organ like the heart, which is basically a pump. It’s an organ with billions of neurons and billions of connections, in constant transformation, changing with every interaction and experience, absorbing culture, manifesting in our behavior, and running our personal shows. Sometimes the show is no good, and it loses its director altogether. “But no one is guilty because they’re mentally ill,” Lipska says. “It’s not their fault. It’s an illness like any other, we just don’t understand it.” Lipska’s personal experience transformed the way she thinks about mental health and mental illness, as she writes in her book. For most of her adult life, she was an energetic, determined, ambitious researcher, devoted to her work, family, and running marathons. But after she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015 and began taking medications to deal with the illness, she became someone else—and not someone she liked. “I was completely disinhibited.” She was angry, cranky, demanding, insistent, unreasonable, intolerant, and sometimes a danger to herself and others. She made bad decisions. One day, she tried to walk home alone from a supermarket. She got lost, urinating on herself, eventually hitching a ride home to a house she couldn’t recognize or point out to the driver. She was mean to her beloved grandkids, and rude to medical personnel who tried to help her. She saw menace in situations that were non-th

Cortex Releases the World’s First AI on Blockchain TestNet

Cortex is a blockchain project that aims to provide cutting-edge machine-learning models in which users can infer via smart contracts on the Cortex blockchain. The project’s Q3 2018 milestone of launching a fully-functional Mining TestNet (codenamed “Bernard”) has just been completed on time, and the Cortex team has even launched a beta version of Q1 2019 milestone, which is the Cortex AI Smart Contract TestNet (codenamed “Dolores”), several months ahead of schedule. The launch of Cortex TestNet is significant because this is the first time in human history that AI models have been successfully deployed on the blockchain. Predictive AI models have been around for some time, but overcoming the many challenges of integrating and deploying AI on the blockchain and allowing users to selectively use the models that best suit their needs has been a long-standing challenge. As the blockchain space grows, we expect to see higher volumes of data logged and recorded by blockchain projects. Being able to leverage AI for decision-making and automating contracts is an important hurdle to work on from now. The technology that Cortex is developing will help overcome these issues, as well as issues of limited computing capacity and flawed governance that have plagued decentralized applications from their inception. Bernard and Dolores TestNet serve as a big milestone as this is the first time in the history of mankind to enable AI inference on the blockchain to showcase to the world. Furthermore, Cortex is built on open-source technology, so the project will help democratize AI technology and bring it within reach of people and organizations both big and small. Preventing the monopolization of AI is an important cornerstone of the decentralized and democratic world that Cortex envisions for the future. Cortex native token, CTXC, is the first decentralized digital currency that makes AI model inference available on the blockchain, and programmable in smart contracts. The timely launch of the TestNet is a testimony to the advanced technical expertise, excellent execution, and effective management of the Cortex team. The team is setting an exemplary standard for other projects in the industry to aspire to. Mining TestNet The Cerebro Block Explorer & Cortex Wallet have been released. With Cerebro, users can explore individual blocks and transactions, transaction histories, and address balances on the Cortex blockchain. The groundbreaking and revolutionary feature of Cerebro is that it allows users to add, explore, and invoke AI models via smart contracts to infer data, depending on the application or use-case that they need to fulfill. To use and interact with the Cerebro browser, the Cortex wallet will have to be installed. Cortex has deployed 10 full TestNet nodes in 6 different countries to generate AI smart contract logs and inference results. More nodes will be added in the coming weeks and months, adding to the stability of the network. Users are invited to set up their own nodes by following these instructions. Cuckoo Cycle Consensus Mechanism The Cortex team chose the Cuckoo Cycle algorithm which is based on Proof of Work for network consensus. According to the Cortex team: “We are a strong believer in one-machine-one-vote to allow more people to participate equally in the blockchain consensus. Cuckoo Cycle algorithm is selected as the consensus mechanism to allow commodity hardware to mine.” The Cortex team ensures that common users can participate in mining, and that mining power does not become pooled by a few large ‘whales’ in the market. Mining Pools Users who want to join a mining pool can connect directly to the Cortex mining pool and download the required software. A simple dashboard allows users to check statuses such as network computing power, mining difficulty, and block height on the dashboard, as well as set their mining and wallet addresses. AI Smart Contract TestNet With the Cerebro explorer, users can find the most applicable on-chain AI models and build those into their smart contracts. They can even download AI models and data from full nodes for further improvement or analysis. AI developers, on the other hand, can upload their own AI models which will be submitted to the Cortex team for inclusion on-chain. The CVM and Smart Contract Editing Cortex has its own virtual machine, the Cortex Virtual Machine (CVM), which is backward compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Cortex smart contracts are written using Solidity, the same programming language used by Ethereum developers. An AI smart contract editor called Remix can be used to add any available AI models on-chain into new smart contracts, enhancing the functionality of the system as a whole. Synapses One of Cortex’s core technologies is the deterministic AI inference engine on blockchain, called Synapse. Synapse allows integer inference engine to perform deterministic AI inferences while guaranteeing exactly the same result of an
