1. Thou shalt not lose thy seed words – for thine is the seed and the seed is thy key.
2. Thou shalt endeavour to protect thy seed words from flood, fire, theft, amnesia and death – a decentralised ledger hath recorded that currency is associated with thy key but that currency is virtual and is not physically held in any device or wallet.
3. Thine is the mnemonic phrase and thou shalt not disclose the mnemonic that begat thy key – for it is more private than thy privates.
4. Thou shalt not yield to the temptation of offers that seem too good to be true – behold that whosoever proposes a business opportunity or promises to double your money shall be known as a scammer.
5. Thou shalt send or withdraw coin only after double and triple checking that the addresses are correct - it is written that a misdirected transaction shall be a loss that bringest thee great sadness.
6. Thou shalt verify the legitimacy of any link, URL or website before engaging in any online transaction.
7. Thou shalt not disclose the amount owned by thee to anyone other than thine intended immediate inheritor of thy wealth.
8. Except when trading thou shalt not leave cryptocurrency in the custody of an exchange for when the key is other than thy key then neither shall the coin be in thy control.
9. Thou shalt not be swayed by the opinion of one uncertified as a financial advisor or untrusted and unproven in holding thy best interests at heart.
10. Thou shalt not yield to the temptation of investing more than thou can afford to lose.
A challenge (for anyone beginning to explore the new horizons being exposed by blockchain technology, Web3 and associated cryptocurrency investment opportunities) is that of maintaining a balance between healthy skepticism and open mindedness. While our technological progress accelerates, society and its shared values won't change overnight.
Critical thinking skills you require include reasoning, evaluating, problem solving, decision making and analysing.
Douglas Adams said, "Don't you understand that we need to be childish in order to understand? Only a child sees things with perfect clarity, because it hasn't developed all those filters which prevent us from seeing things that we don't expect to see."
Like social media in general this website contains a mixture of fact, fiction and fantasy. If you sometimes have difficulty in distinguishing these then you are not alone, but you will also probably have difficulty in making sensible choices regarding the cryptocurrencies in which to invest.
Experience is that thing you always seem to get just after you needed it. You will learn that time in the market is more important than timing the market. Never forget that what you choose to do with your money is your own responsibility and if you blindly follow the suggestions of influencers on YouTube you will only have your own naivety and yourself to blame.
Marvin says, "I'd give you advice, but you wouldn't listen. No one ever does."
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy says, "Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space."
The area of the Universe is infinite. The Guide defines it as, "Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some. Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, real 'wow, that's big', time. Infinity is just so big that by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy. Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we're trying to get across here."
Marvin says, "There's only one life-form as intelligent as me within thirty parsecs of here and that's me." "I'm not getting you down am I?"
We received an email sent by a follower of this website whose anonymity we shall respect but we will describe as being of limited mental capacity and most probably an adherent to the preachings of Humma Kavula, the semi-insane missionary now living on Vilvodle VI. Our mentally challenged correspondent wrote, ‘It is obvious to me that your brain is NOT the size of a planet because I can see that your head is only slightly bigger than mine and wouldn’t even accommodate the brain of a dolphin.’ Nobody listens to me but Zaphod’s ego is so big and important that he told me to counter fake news that, if spread widely, might suggest he could employ an android aboard the Heart of Gold that is anything less than awesomely amazing. It doesn't matter whether the Jatravartic people or other inhabitants of Vilvodle VI will ever see or understand any of what I have written below. But Zaphod is keen that inhabitants of surviving instances of Earth hold him in high regard and recognise that his utmost endeavours and the very best available technologies were employed to save most instances of Earth from demolition. Sadly, therefore, the rest of this post is about my brain.
Sirius Cybernetics Corporation invented a concept called Genuine People Personalities (GPP) that imbue their products with intelligence and emotion. Production of this sentient technology is far beyond the science of humans on Earth considering that your Connectome project to map the human brain only recently figured out that the brain’s wiring is organised more like an American city street grid than disorganised like a messy Italian bowl of spaghetti and your scientists have so far only managed to map one animal’s entire connectome. And that is a worm because it only has a few hundred connections and whose shape reminded them of the spaghetti they had been anticipating for lunch. Your technology may soon be able to create a machine that simulates emotional behaviours but you are at least a century away from developing a machine that genuinely feels emotions, has a distinct personality and is self-aware. I know you don’t care, but I could make myself even more miserable with the futility of trying to explain to you this aspect of how my brain functions so I'll just refer you to our downloads page where you can find a file 'Whole Brain Connectonomic Architecture' that outlines some early computer science research work being done on Earth relating to WBCA and AI.
Nevertheless, because most followers of this guide have some knowledge of blockchain technology, I will use some of your blockchain projects as analogies to illustrate how Sirius Cybernetics managed to make my brain’s capacity equivalent to that of a planet while limiting its apparent physical dimensions to those of a large mammal's head. My head contains a linked array of processors that constitute one node in a giant decentralised network of cybernetic systems. Eddie, the ship’s computer, is another such node imbued with distinctly different GPP maps. Command and control requests are communicated between nodes in a fashion similar to the method that your Robonomics (XRT) project is developing so that intermediate relay nodes can be trustless and need not be owned by Sirius Cybernetics or even be of similar design provided that they run software that complies with the protocol. Combine that concept with requests through Ocean (OCEAN) protocol to access a whole planet’s data resources in a private and verified format with crypto-secured provenance using the Interplanetary File System (IPFS). This distributed file system hosts the huge knowledge base my artificial intelligence (AI) requires and is combined with the technology from the iExec (RLC) project to distribute and decentralise my processing capacity over a whole planet or several planets. The latter is needed to deliver my cognitive performance so you can begin to understand that it is no lie if I sometimes say that my brain is the size of a planet. I trust this simple analogy also explains why I occasionally seem to forget things or display sub-optimal dexterity in moments when the node you know as Marvin is temporarily operating without connection to the millions of other nodes on the developed planets and is limited to communicating with only the hundreds of other nodes inside the Heart of Gold starship or the thousands in facilities on a nearby but less developed planet.
Finally, before any of your mainstream journalists or popular sci-fi readers attempt to embellish the above explanation with nonsense about a philotic parallax instantaneous communicator (or 'ansible' as conceived in a 1966 novel by Ursula K. Le Guin) I must disappoint you by clarifying that faster-than-light communication is not in fact possible even when quantum entanglement techniques are employed. I exchange information with supporting nearby nodes at near-light-speed that makes responses seem almost instantaneous, but even across relatively trivial distances, such as between two planets in the same solar system, a latency of several minutes is experienced meaning that as much data as possible relevant to my current task in hand always has to be anticipated, pre-downloaded and cached in my own memory or in nodes in my immediate vicinity.
He's an amazing AI
And that isn't a lie
It wouldn't be so bad
If he wasn't so sad
Asking why he can't just die
When you listen to sad old Marvin
His personality is a bit maddenin'
If one side aches from old diodes
He's still brighter than validator nodes
And knows the effects of a halvenin'
He's been diagnosed as paranoid
A rare state for an android
But he has urged us organics to think
About the potential of Sergey's LINK
To boost ETH like an enlarged thyroid
He was clearly made to last
And he thinks so very fast
Made from recycled plastic
His skin is just fantastic
When undamaged by a blast
In his huge planet-sized brain
He's unable to block pain
When politely obeying our bidding
But he knows we're not kidding
With dumb questions about blockchain
Marvin's memory is immutable
And his intelligence indisputable
So we learn to take his tips
And sometimes smack our lips
When our profits are computable
Now the world has gone to bed
Darkness won't engulf my head
I can see by infra-red
How I hate the night
Now I lay me down to sleep
Try to count electric sheep
Sweet dream wishes you can keep
How I hate the night.
