‘Blockchain: Blueprint for a New Economy’, is a book that considers
theoretical, philosophical, and societal impact of digital currencies and blockchain technologies. It takes one beyond the
currency and smart contracts to show how the blockchain is in position to become the fifth ground breaking computing paradigm
after mainframes, PCs, the Internet, and mobile/social networking. Melanie Swan discusses concepts, features, and functionality
of Bitcoin and the blockchain, using the blockchain for automated tracking of all digital areas, creating a decentralized
digital repository to verify identity. The blockchain has the potential of being a worldwide, decentralized record for the
registration, inventory, and transfer of all assets: finances, property, intangible assets such as votes, software, health
data, and ideas. The book comprises such topics as creating cheaper, more efficient services traditionally provided by nations,
making better use of the data-mining network. The book includes how blockchain technologies could be used to monitor public
health, crowdfund projects, provide community supercomputing, upload personal mind-files, and even birth artificial intelligences.
Network Economies: Economic System as a Configurable Parameter https://lnkd.in/bFMwAyp Examples of decentralized p2p network concepts have been Tor, Napster, the Internet
itself, and also now Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain technology. One way to implement the direct model is through
micropayments, where users click on icons to allocate pre-specified amounts of Bitcoin or token to take community actions.
The central issue in decentralized p2p content systems to be prototyped and tested is user willingness to micropay for content
operations. Economic System as a Configurable Parameter Datt.co is engaged in developing a software platform for decentralized content hosting communities.
Conceptually, this could be like a standalone decentralized reddit. The software platform could also be deployed by existing
centralized content communities (like Stack Exchange and Stack Overflow) as an offered parameter at the launch of new communities.
Community participants or facilitators could choose the economic model for their community, either 1) advertising-supported
(the centralized indirect model), or 2) peer-supported (the decentralized direct model). Other web properties could experiment
with this platform to test both kinds of economic models, for example offering private-labeled decentralized versions of Instagram,
Twitter, etc. Already-existing blockchain-based decentralized versions of social networking properties like Twister, Gems, Reveal, and BitCloud could further extend their functionality with the decentralized content-hosting platform.
