Tari Labs hides BTC bounty in Ms. Pac-Man game

Tari Labs, the company that works on digitizing assets on the blockchain and deveoping a Mimble Wimble sidechain for Monero (among many other interesting projects), has made an offer no bitcoiner can refuse: you play a game of Ms. Pac-Man (retitled Ms. Fluffy as a way of showing some Valentine’s Day love to Riccardo “Fluffy Pony” Spagni‘s wife), you pay close attention to the Easter eggs, and you may just unlock a wallet which contains 0.25 BTC (at press time, about $900). As part of a Valentine’s Day campaign, Tari has announced on their Twitter account that the unfortunate ones who don’t have a significant other can compensate their emotional void with a game of Ms. Fluffy. At first glance, there’s nothing much to this casual gaming experience: you click the pink heart on the bottom right side of the Tari webpage and then enjoy some ghost dodging and white pill eating. Happy Valentine's Day from the Tari community #msfluffy2019https://t.co/wWzLxWapNa pic.twitter.com/sRnU1EVXM9 — Tari (@tari) February 14, 2019 The 1980s arcade experience also contains some really witty references: Ms. Fluffy must run away from the four nasty ghosts named “Roger. Ver”, “Jihan. Wu”, “Craig. Wright”, and “Dan. Larimer”. Also, the regular in-game fruits that give you extra points are replaced with cryptocurrency logos: XRP (which actually takes away 100 points from your score), BTC, Grin, XMR, and the Tari logo. Another nice touch can be discovered when you eat the hearts and momentarily disable any of the four ghosts: they turn into a Lightning bolt until the moment they respawn in their central place. Tari Labs is always looking for talented contributors, but this week we’re raising the bar. We’re only reading resumes that include your Easter egg high score. Better start practicing.#msfluffy2019https://t.co/YLlBszjPt6 pic.twitter.com/er8ndMDW5J — Tari Labs (@tari_labs) February 14, 2019 There’s more to Ms. Fluffy than meets the eye For starters, a little Twitter stalking will help you discover that Tari Labs is really serious about this little game of Ms. Pac-Man. The company is currently hiring professionals to fill 11 positions, ranging from marketing to engineering and design. And in order for the candidates to be eligible for the jobs they apply for, they are asked to add to their resumes a screenshot of their Ms. Fluffy high score. It’s a mandatory criterion that must be fulfilled throughout the week. But aside from this organizational detail, the simplistic game includes some cheats and ultimately reveals a BTC bounty. The more you play, the more messages you discover - and when you figure something out and it looks a lot like a BTC public key, you will realize that there is a really nice bounty involved. Hello, @tari what's this? #msfluffy2019 https://t.co/AcCssm9ktQ pic.twitter.com/VDRtW3YYKw — Captain Snow (@caylesharrock) February 15, 2019 The secret can be found in one of the six different messages that get displayed on screen when you press the “B” key during the level. If you want to skip to the next stage to find another message or clue, you don’t have to eat all the pills - instead, you just press the “M” key and you’re all set for a cheating advancement. Given these requirements, it’s recommended that you play the game on your desktop computer or laptop (it’s also available on mobile, but you won’t be able to access these cheats). Furthermore, if you want to treat the game itself a little more unfairly and see where the ghosts are going, add “/#cheat_mspac” the the URL (which is https://www.tari.com/pacman/). It’s very useful if you want to make a new high score and brag to the other players on Twitter. CONTEST ALERT The highest score from today’s Valentine’s Day Easter egg wins a boating trip with @fluffypony. Bring your private keys, just in case.#msfluffy2019https://t.co/wWzLxWapNa pic.twitter.com/VPfIG3mltn — Tari (@tari) February 14, 2019 The Tari account has suggested that the highest score wins a boating trip with Riccardo “Fluffy Pony” Spagni. However, it’s more likely that the other detail about bringing your private keys is more relevant for revealing the true intentions of this game of Ms. Pac-Man: as you’re about to discover, in-game messages lead you to a wallet where 0.25 BTC are deposited as bounty. Get the 0.25 BTC! The following part of the article is the result of more than 10 hours of gameplay and cryptographic key experimentation. If you manage to outsmart me and find a way to access the bitcoins, then please be kind and send a portion of the 0.25 BTC bounty to 3AoyUxdUJ2KAqrL86D6T5GwcW8omwUdV38. Without the data provided in this article, it’s very unlikely that you would have found about this challenge anyway. There's a game to play, and a puzzle that has BTC in it, go go go! https://t.co/ypPIOErBu2 — Riccardo Spagni (@fluffypony) February 14, 2019 The funny, weird, and useful in-game Easter Eggs If you press the “B” key during level one, a chat window will be revealed to yo

Bitmex Report: ICOs Allocated $24.2 Billion in Tokens to Themselves

The team at Bitmex Research has collaborated with TokenAnalyst to take a thorough look at the treasure balances of several individual ICOs on the Ethereum network. The two teams released a report that showed that ICO teams allocated $24.2 Billion worth of tokens to themselves. $80 Billion in Peak Value The Bitmex and TokenAnalyst report goes on to state that this figure has fallen to $5 Billion due to current market conditions. There is also an additional $1.5 Billion of token transfers that has happened away from the ETH addresses of these teams. The report speculates that these tokens were ‘disposed’ of. Also noted by the report is that these tokens would have a $80 Billion valuation using the peak value of each digital asset. $5 Billion From Nothing According to the report, the $5 Billion current valuation of tokens being owned by teams of these ICOs, can be considered as being got from nothing. Based on current illiquid spot prices, the ICO teams still appear to own around US$5 billion of their own tokens, money they essentially got from nothing, depending on ones view. At the same time the teams may have realized gains of US$1.5 billion by selling tokens, based on coins leaving team address clusters. Although this figure may also be an overestimate, as coins could have left the team address cluster for a variety of reasons. Notable ICOs Mentioned in the Report The report went on to highlight the token allocation for the teams of several ICOs. They include Veritaseum (VERI), SingularityNet (AGI), Polymath (POLY), Kin (KIN), Dent (DENT), Gnosis (GNO), Maker (MKR), Telcoin (TEL), IoT Chain (ITC) and QASH.

Blockchain Will Be Brought Onto Satellites by Cryptocurrency Exchange to Help Adoption in Developing Countries

A new cryptocurrency exchange has partnered with a satellite operator to give blockchain access to people without the internet in developing countries. Supreme Global Holdings (SGH) has launched a new cryptocurrency exchange, SupremeCrypX and is partnering it with its satellite operator company SupremeSAT. The objective of this partnership is to provide access to cryptocurrencies — and the ability to mine them — to people without access to the internet. SupremeSAT is the first and only Sri Lankan satellite operator, and they already have multiple satellites and teleport assets globally. According to SupremeSAT’s chairman, the company will also grant SupremeCrypX the permission to use their ground stations as data centers to establish mining operations which will back its “Supreme Coin.” Also, the company has plans to not only list but also develop its own asset-backed stablecoins within a limited amount of time, with the funds obtained through mining. This plan — if Rafael Cosma and Vitalik Buterin are right — is in line with the declared objective of the exchange, which is to “strive towards ensuring sustainable and regulated growth of cryptocurrencies for the greater good of mankind.” Rafael Cosma, CEO of Trust Token, declared that stablecoins “are one of the keys to bringing the benefits of cryptocurrencies to everyday people.” Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum’s co-founder, said that “perhaps the time is ripe for stable-currency or multi-currency systems to take over.” The exchange intends to offer a range of services such as virtual cards that provide an easy way to spend cryptocurrencies, blockchain-based products, and a fiat currency exchange. Moreover, SupremeCrypX declared that it is working towards “ensuring sustainable and regulated growth of cryptocurrencies for the greater good of mankind.” The exchange will be based out of Malta. According to the chairman, Ramasamy Muthusamy Manivannan, this grants it “the reassurance of operating under a regulated jurisdiction.” Manivannan announced that the company plans to “join hands with the forward-thinking Maltese government to promote cryptocurrency usage in the world.” The Maltese government has been acclaimed as the world’s cryptocurrency capital after its parliament passed three bills which grant its jurisdiction clarity, without equals anywhere else in the world when it comes to cryptocurrencies. The focus on advanced and upcoming technology — and the problems it brings with it — have been demonstrated by the local government, also in the way it deals with artificial intelligence (AI). The Maltese government reportedly aims to “explore a citizenship test for robots in the process of drafting new regulation for AI.” The ground for these tests is being laid in the form of a collaboration with decentralized AI services marketplace SingularityNET and a friendly regulatory environment. Supreme Global Holdings is described on the SupremeCrypX website as a “diversified global enterprise with interests in multiple sectors,” while the SGH website claims that it is a “leading player in South Asia’s Commodity Trading, Shipping industry and an investor with [a] primary focus on emerging markets.” According to R.M. Manivannan, SupremeCrypX also intends to help cryptocurrency adoption by granting free fractions of Bitcoin to its registered users.

The Daily: Atari Partners Decentralized Gaming Company, Tagomi Goes Live

In today’s edition of The Daily, we cover stories that show how crypto assets and technology continue to impact the development of everything, from mobile games to artificial intelligence. We also feature a new crypto trading venue that aims to bring in more investment from ultra wealthy families and institutions. Also Read: Iranian Students in the UK Use Bitcoin to Bypass Banks Blockchain-Based Atari Mobile Games Classic gaming company Atari has announced it entered into a license agreement with the exclusive distributor of Crypto Kitties in China, Animoca Brands. The deal grants Animoca the rights to develop decentralized versions of the Atari mobile games Roller Coaster Tycoon and Goon Squad, and to market them around the world excluding greater China. The titles will feature what the companies refer to as “non-fungible tokens.” “This deal marks a special moment for me because I started my career working with Atari and using Atari computers,” said Yat Siu, the co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands. “The Roller Coaster Tycoon franchise is, like many of Atari’s properties, a true evergreen, having been around for two decades. Given the strategic and commercial elements of this incredibly fun simulation, it is a perfect candidate for blockchain adaptation.” Animoca expects to publish the games in the latter half of 2019. It will pay Atari a minimum guarantee against future revenues of $250,000, payable in shares of the company’s stock, and a revenue share will be payable to Atari after gross revenues exceed a total of $500,000. The terms of the deal extend through to March 31, 2022. “We are proud and delighted to enter into this long-term and strategic relationship with Animoca Brands, which also allows us to become a shareholder in one of the most exciting innovators in the world of decentralized gaming,” said Frédéric Chesnais, the main shareholder and CEO of Atari. “We hope that this agreement paves the way to further cooperation on other Atari products.” Bitcoin Prime Brokerage Tagomi Goes Live Tagomi, an electronic brokerage offering prime services for digital assets, has announced it began executing client trades on Monday. In addition to access to cash spot markets and OTC liquidity, the venue offers institutional operational standards, treasury management, low transaction-costs, transparency, custody solutions, and other services. “At this nascent stage for digital assets, investors are seeking a better way to execute large trades,” said Jennifer Campbell, Chief Executive Officer of Tagomi. “We’re excited to have built that. Our focus is on providing our clients, which include financial institutions, high net worth individuals and other sophisticated digital asset investors, a comprehensive solution that eases the operational challenges associated with trading at scale in this emerging asset class.” The company has raised $16 million to date from notable investors such as Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Collaborative Fund, SV Angel, Joe Lonsdale, Brainchild, Digital Currency Group, Zhen Fund, Box Group, Elad Gil, Charlie Noyes, and others. Tagomi’s management team comes from the likes of Goldman Sachs, Virtu Financial, Citadel, Nasdaq and other mainstream financial companies. “Cryptocurrency trading lacks the transparency and sophisticated execution that top family offices and wealth management firms have come to expect. I’m excited to see an ambitious team with the right experience in finance and technology fix this, creating a solution we trust,” said Joe Lonsdale, Founder of Palantir and Addepar. Decentralized AI Network Launches Developer Portal Singularitynet is a project promising to leverage blockchain to democratize access to Artificial Intelligence. Its founder, Dr. Ben Goertzel, recently went on the Joe Rogan podcast to explain how the technology powering cryptocurrency can be used to make sure that no single corporation or government will be able to dominate AI. The company is today launching a portal meant to enable developers to discover, learn, and adopt the decentralized AI network. It aims to provide detailed resources, tutorials, descriptions, and guides, letting anyone create and monetize AI services at scale. Singularitynet states that while many companies are “struggling in the wake of the current crypto winter,” it continues to evolve and will be launching its beta in February 2019. The foundation associated with the venture also just hosted its inaugural developer workshop in Helsinki, Finland, with over 250 participants. “We were really excited at the level of enthusiasm for the workshop and have already planned follow-ups and a number of video tutorials and webinars to meet the demand,” said Dr. Goertzel. “In subsequent workshops, we’ll follow these themes and add new AI content. This is a significant milestone for the Singularitynet project and its rapid movement from concept to reality — just a couple of months before the February beta release.” What do you think about t

Blockchain AI: Decentralizing The Language Of The Gods

It wasn’t that long ago that Artificial Intelligence (AI) was a distant dream. But automated vehicles are around the corner. Uber cars send data to the company’s research labs, to teach robots to drive. And what middle-class home is complete without an Alexa, organizing lives and shopping lists? So how does blockchain fit into all of this? Until recently, not very well. The two technologies developed in parallel, but rarely overlapped. But that may be about to change. During the Malta Blockchain Summit last week, Hong Kong-based engineering company Hanson Robotics, showcased Sophia: a social humanoid robot. She (if that’s the correct pronoun) still has limitations. Journalists have to ask their questions through a specially designed microphone that cuts out background noise, in a near-silent room. Her knowledge base is also limited; a Hanson engineer manages her interactions from a laptop hooked up at the back of the room. The wifi is irregular, so a long ethernet cable connects her to the back of the wall. Some of her responses are pre-programmed with a basic understanding of cryptocurrency, reflecting the background of most of the journalists in the room. Engineers explain that at the end of the conference, most of her responses and knowledge-base will be removed. But these are mild quibbles. Although the display is impressive, Hanson wants to do better. The end-goal is to have an autonomous robot, that can speak lucidly on topics without assistance and prodding from a host of engineers. Blockchain AI: Can they mix? Hanson Robotics has started collaborating with SingularityNET (AGI), a decentralized AI marketplace upon which Crypto Briefing has reported before. The end goal is for Singularity to become a platform where different AI entities can communicate and even trade with one another, using the exchange’s native AGI token. That’s not there yet, partly because there aren’t enough AIs around, and also because existing entities are effectively isolated. Sophia is a case in point: currently, Hanson Robotics has to manually manage what she knows and ultimately determine her responses and interactions with the outside world. SingularityNET believes their blockchain can be used as a data repository for AI entities to freely pull the information and data they need to actually function. “AIs have to operate from scripts because crucial data sets exist in siloes,” Arif Khan, SingularityNET’s VP for marketing, told Crypto Briefing after the press conference with Sophia. “This hinders AI development. Large tech companies still hold the keys to further development, but most work for-profit. What we can do with blockchain is effectively make this knowledge open-source”. Khan says that Sophia learns from her experiences, even during press briefings. This improves her responses and ability to think independently long term, but at the moment, there’s no way any of this information can be shared with other AIs. SingularityNET’s blockchain can be used as a databank for all of these experiences. When one AI learns something, other automatons can learn about it, too. “I may be being dramatic, but AI is sort of like the language of the gods”, Khan explains. “Currently loads of independent robotics companies are in an arms race with big tech. It’s great that AI is now a serious sector, but the motivations behind companies like Facebook is ultimately the shareholders dividend.” “Is this how we should enter this new era?” Khan asked, rhetorically. Sophia robot is just the beginning Robots may not literally walk amongst us yet (and Sophia doesn’t have legs), but they are penetrating all aspects of our lives. Like the internet, society will one day wake up and struggle to remember a world without artificial intelligence. Tech is hierarchical, and still governed by the bottom line. But the Blockchain’s contribution to AI might be to change this dynamic. If humans start manufacturing sentient life, blockchains can prevent it from being determined at the end of a corporate balance sheet.

Blockchain Could Be Crucial for Moving AI Tech Forward

Many startups are attracting capital and developing products to make artificial intelligence (AI) more accessible, as well as better protecting personal data via blockchain tech. Blockchain to Decentralize Artificial Intelligence Venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and academics are rushing to embrace the awesome synergy resulting from the application of Bitcoin’s (BTC) 00 blockchain technology and artificial intelligence (AI). Dr. Ben Goertzel, CEO of SingularityNet and chief scientist at Hanson Robotics, affirms that blockchain might help make AI more accessible for small and mid-size companies. Indeed, he’s asserted that AI could be ‘democratized’ through the use of blockchain technology. According to The New York Times, Dr. Goertzel and Dr. Dawn Song, a computer science professor at the University of California, propose that: The blockchain could be a crucial way to push back against some of the most worrying trends facing the field of artificial intelligence. NY Times writes about How the Blockchain Could Break Big Tech’s Hold on A.I. @singularity_net https://t.co/oZA9C5Z1sL — Ben Goertzel (@bengoertzel) October 20, 2018 Likewise, DeepBrain’s management believes that blockchain can help small-size companies that do not have the necessary funding to break into the expensive AI industry. A company press release says: DeepBrain Chain is the world’s first AI computing platform powered by blockchain. It uses blockchain technology to help AI companies save up to 70% of computing power costs while protecting data privacy in AI training. Blockchain Key for Data Protection in the AI Environment One of the primary virtues of a centralized blockchain is that it eliminates intermediaries and any central authority. Decentralization is essential to allowing AI networks to exchange vast amounts of data without a singular authority in place controlling the data or the algorithms. Nathaniel Popper of The New York Times writes that several startups are already setting up blockchain-based marketplaces for trading data. For example, Popper refers to Ocean Protocol, which is a decentralized data exchange protocol for sharing data and services through the use of blockchain. According to the company website, Ocean is designed to unlock data for AI allowing sharing and selling in a secure environment. In this regard, many entrepreneurs concur with Dr. Song and Dr. Goertzel that blockchain has the power to facilitate a far-reaching distribution of data and algorithms. Therefore, blockchain is likely to play a key role in determining how AI will continue to develop. As a result, Song and Goertzel, in an interview with The New York Times, highlighted the importance of ensuring that machine learning capabilities should be under the control of the data owner rather than big companies. For example, people are concerned about the fact that Google and Facebook have immense power to obtain and store personal data. But to counteract this problem, Professor Song is now developing Oasis, a blockchain-based technique to protect the data being sold, “so that no one — not even the company using the data — will get a copy of it.” What are your thoughts on combining the power of blockchain and AI technologies?

The Race Is On to Power AI Machines

Over the past few years, the pace of development in artificial intelligence (AI) technologies has become increasingly rapid. This is leading to some impressive predictions about how the AI revolution will impact our lives over the next few years. For instance, Accenture claims that AI technology may double economic growth rates between now and 2035. What is driving this sudden leap forward in AI development? Well, the increasing availability of data and information is a crucial factor, along with innovations in AI algorithms. However, both of these factors would be irrelevant without the growing availability of computing power needed to drive AI machines. OpenAI released a report stating that since 2012, the amount of computing power needed to run the largest AI training algorithms has increased exponentially, doubling around every three and a half months. Contrast this to Moore’s Law, which experienced a doubling every 18 months, and the sheer volume is pretty staggering. Going forward, it becomes clear that if AI developments continue at the current pace, the providers of computing power have their work cut out for them if they want to keep up. . So where does the computing power for AI machines come from? As it stands, the market is dominated by big tech firms. All that computing power requires dedicated hardware and software, which big AI developers will buy at considerable costs. Therefore, the big tech firms are in a race to ensure that they can stay ahead of the competition by developing the very latest, greatest innovations in processors and cloud computing. The Big Guns Leading the Pack Leading the pack on the development of computing services for AI are AWS, operated by Amazon, and Microsoft. Amazon has obvious AI credentials in the form of its own Alexa robot. However, it also boasts household names such as Netflix and Pinterest among its clients. These platforms use AWS services to drive their own machine learning algorithms for delivering content tailored to user preferences. AWS announced two new updates in July, aiming to improve its offering that allows users to build and deploy new AI models in the cloud. In a bid to win market share from AWS, Microsoft recently announced their latest development of the Azure Data Box Edge, tailored hardware for running AI algorithms without the addition of any special processors. One of the newest clients is using this hardware to process photographs as part of its quality controls. Not to be outdone, Nvidia, which also supplies computing services to its AI clients, announced the release of its platform which allows the implementation of AI in medical devices. This would mean that AI technology can screen data sources such as X-rays or CT scans, generated from older devices. The big market players in computing power have extensive resources at their disposal, meaning they can focus on developing bigger and better chips, or on enhancing their cloud service offerings. However, market domination by a few big companies isn’t creating an environment of innovation among smaller AI developers. Companies like AWS and Microsoft can charge a premium for their computing services, which prices smaller developers out of the market. The Underdogs Entering the Track Smaller start-ups are now seeing the potential of blockchain to disrupt many industries where big players have historically dominated the markets. A core feature of blockchain is its use of distributed networks. Is now the time for blockchain to enter the race of AI computing providers? One company that believes so is Tatau, a blockchain-based distributed computing platform. Tatau is aiming to disrupt the provision of computing power in a similar way that Uber revolutionized the transportation industry. By harnessing the power of blockchain, the company believes it can become the world’s biggest supplier of computing, rivaling companies like AWS and Microsoft — but without even owning any computers. This model will aggregate GPU computing power from different sources such as miners, datacentres, and gaming platforms. Using a native payment token, enterprises can purchase computing power from the network and by deploying blockchain in this way, Tatau can provide computing power to its customers on an as-needed basis. There is no need for them to invest in expensive hardware or ongoing contracts for cloud computing. Similarly, there are other blockchain projects seeking to use the decentralized power of blockchain for the benefit of the AI market. DeepBrainChain and SingularityNET are two of the most notable examples. Both have shown initial success, demonstrating that there is a high level of support within the AI community for using blockchain as a means to democratize the availability of computing power. This is perhaps unsurprising, given the prohibitively high costs of smaller AI developers using techgiant companies for computational needs. Who Will Win The Race? The big tech players remain focused
