Seven NWO Agendas accompanying the "Coronavirus Epidemic"

Seven NWO Agendas accompanying the
by Makia FreemanFebruary 20, 2020
from TheFreedomArticles Website


Whatever you believe about the coronavirus epidemic, it is providing the chaos necessary for new (world) order.

AT A GLANCE...THE STORY:While the debate continues as to the true count of infected people due to the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, several sinister agendas are being pushed out.
THE IMPLICATIONS:Is the coronavirus an opportunity or excuse for the authorities to roll out long-desired schemes of control and manipulation?
-------------------------------------------------------------

While the coronavirus 'epidemic' continues, with people debating on both sides whether it is being overplayed or underplayed, it is worthwhile pausing to consider what agendas - and I mean which NWO agendas - are being rolled out using the epidemic as a cover or pretext.
As I covered in my last article The Coronavirus 5G Connection and Coverup, with these kind of outbreaks, there is always a dual motivation for authorities: the motivation to hype and the motivation to downplay because both approaches serve the ruling class in different ways.
Deception is a hallmark of government, and clearly all the more so in an emergency, so it is always going to be hard to trust whatever news or stats are coming from official sources.
Regardless of the virus' true origins and virulence, we can say for sure that there are several agendas being pushed as you read these words.
It's the same old Hegelian dialectic strategy of problem-reaction-solution, and whatever the reality is on a microbial level, the world's population has the perception of a problem, so the ruling class has another opportunity to make their order out of chaos.
Below are 5+ NWO agendas being carried out due to the coronavirus epidemic.
1. Centralized Control of Information, i.e. Censorship and Narrative ControlQuite a few of the speakers at the 'Event 201' simulation (hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center in partnership with World Economic Forum [WEF] and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) spoke of the need for the centralized control of information during a pandemic, including one speaker Lavan Thiru (described as a Monetary Authority of Singapore) who mentioned,
"a step up from the part of the government on enforcement actions against fake news."
There were some who said Big Tech is a no longer a platform but a broadcaster and must be made to combat fake news.
Another speaker in typical fashion demonized conspiracy theories.
Here is a quote directly from the simulation/make-believe event (which came true 6 weeks later):
"Disinformation and misinformation are wreaking havoc... pharmaceutical companies are being accused of introducing the... virus so they can make money on drugs and vaccines, and have seen public faith in their products plummet.
Unrest due to false rumors and divisive messaging is rising, and is exacerbating spread of the disease as levels of trust fall, and people stop cooperating with response efforts.
This is a massive problem, one that threatens governments and trusted institutions.National governments are considering or have already implemented a range of interventions to combat misinformation.
Some governments have taken control of national access to the internet; others are censoring websites and social media content, and a small number have shut down internet access completely to prevent the flow of misinformation.
Penalties have been put in place for spreading harmful falsehoods, including arrests."
The plan is to continue the censorship which Big Tech has been spearheading for years now, using the excuse of harmful "fake news" by claiming that the dissemination of false information during an emergency is a bigger problem than usual and must be stopped.
Here are some other quotes from the event:
"I do think that there needs to be sort-of an honest broker, a centralized command-and-control organization that really brings together the public-private sector, both on a global approach and also on a local approach...""Yes, I agree, and I wanted to speak to the point about having the honest broker, and I think in this regard the United Nations fits the bill... ""It's important that the UN and WHO remain very clear, but when they challenge governments directly, they often get into this issue of sovereignty, and so I think it's really important not to have that as the only response... it's really critical to remember soft power influence..."
That last statement reveals yet again a dominant NWO agenda in so many arenas of life: narrative control.
2. The Cashless AgendaThe cashless agenda is a long-term NWO scheme that goes hand in hand with transhumanism, i.e. the digitization of everything in society, including things like money, information and life itself.
Power-hungry control freaks - the types of people that gravitate towards government - love the idea of a cashless society because then every single economic transaction can be traced, which allows authorities to build an even more complete picture of who you are so as stop any possible disobedience or revolution before it happens.
It also increases governmental revenue via taxation.
As this article highlights, China has jumped on the opportunity to forward the cashless agenda by claiming that paper money must now be taken out of circulation due to the possibility that it could contain traces of COVID-19 and therefore contribute to the spreading of the coronavirus.
3. Martial Law QuarantinesGovernments love martial law scenarios, because normal human rights are suspended.
Authoritarian China has been lauded by many globalists such as the late David Rockefeller as a model for the New World Order. Some of the photos and videos coming out of China showing the police state there have been horrific.
Another crisis, another opportunity for the government to see how much they can get away with under the banner of fighting the virus.
4. Mandatory VaccinationThe coronavirus 'epidemic' has provided a good excuse for governments round the world to introduce one of their favorite NWO agendas - mandatory vaccination.
The reason why this agenda is particularly so well liked is that it allows authorities access to the human body - and not just the citizen's body, but his or her bloodstream too. truthfully, we have no idea what is in that needle when it gets injected, so all sorts of things could be implanted in our bodies without our knowledge or consent.
Coincidentally (or not), China passed a law on June 29th 2019 that rolled out a national mandatory vaccination program.
Coincidentally (or not), the law went into effect on December 1st 2019, just weeks before the coronavirus epidemic became a worldwide news story.
Here is the article:
"On June 29, 2019, the National People's Congress Standing Committee of the People's Republic of China (PRC or China) adopted the PRC Law on Vaccine Administration (Vaccine Law).
The official Xinhua news agency states that the Law provides for the 'strictest' vaccine management with tough penalties in order to ensure the country's vaccine safety...
The Law mandates the launching of a national vaccine electronic tracking platform that integrates tracking information throughout the whole process of vaccine production, distribution, and use to ensure all vaccine products can be tracked and verified (art. 10).
According to the Law, China is to implement a state immunization program, and residents living within the territory of China are legally obligated to be vaccinated with immunization program vaccines, which are provided by the government free of charge.
Local governments and parents or other guardians of children must ensure that children be vaccinated with the immunization program vaccines...
The Law will take effect on December 1, 2019."
I also have to wonder about the implications when we have so-called experts like Ralph Baric who are pointing out that this coronavirus epidemic may include asymptomatic carriers (as in this story of the 10-year-old Chinese boy who had no symptoms but allegedly tested positive for COVID-19).
This may be helpful information, but it also adds fuel to the mandatory vaccine fire so to speak, because then the authorities claim that they have to vaccinate everyone to protect society due to all these possible hidden asymptomatic carriers that could pop up and infect everyone.
By extension, mandatory vaccination may also include DNA vaccines and microchipping (see next).
5. Bill Gates' ID2020: Digital Identification via MicrochippingAs David Icke says,
if Bill Gates is involved in it, it's bad for humanity...
NWO point-man Bill Gates,
has been heavily pushing GMOs and vaccines for years (including slipping up and admitting that vaccines contribute to population control)
he was part of Event 201 that simulated the coronavirus epidemic before it happened
he "didn't have any business relationship or friendship with" Jeffrey Epstein
so now we have to ask how else this sold-out NWO frontman is benefiting from the virus
Turns out the answer may be found in yet another globalist project Gates has been promoting:
ID 2020...
This is the human microchipping agenda, repackaged.
It sells itself as "a trusted and reliable way" to fulfill a "fundamental and universal human right" - safeguarding your identity both online and in the physical world.
This article reports:
"The ID2020 Alliance, as it's being called, is a digital identity program that aims to 'leverage immunization' as a means of inserting tiny microchips into people's bodies.
In collaboration with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations, also known as GAVI, the government of Bangladesh and various other 'partners in government, academia, and humanitarian relief,' the ID2020 Alliance... wants all humans to be 'vaccinated' with digital tracking chips that will create a seamless monitoring system for the New World Order to manage the populations of the world with ease.""While the ID2020 program's testing grounds are primarily in the Third World, the group says it's also now working with governments here in the United States to start microchipping people through vaccination.
In Austin, Texas, for example, the homeless population is now being exploited as a collective guinea pig for ID2020's microchip vaccination program, which the group claims will help to 'empower' homeless people by supposedly giving them 'control' over their personal identity data.'The City of Austin, ID2020, and several other partners are working together with homeless people and the service providers who engage with them to develop a blockchain-enabled digital identity platform called MyPass to empower homeless people with their own identity data,' writes Chris Burt for BiometricUpdate.com.​ID2020 is also jabbing refugees with its microchip vaccinations through two inaugural pilot programs known as iRespond and Everest."
Since Gates was obviously intimately involved in planning this outbreak and ensuring his companies have the patents and vaccines for the newly released virus, is he also planning on using the coronavirus epidemic to further promote ID2020?

6. Agenda 2030: Wuhan Slated to be one of China's Smart CitiesA massive agenda involved in the coronavirus epidemic is the agenda of all agenda - UN Agenda 2030, which involves Smart Cities.
Guess what?
Before the outbreak China had already planned which of its cities were going to be the ones slated to become the pilot Smart Cities. Wuhan was one of them (which makes sense why it was also the site of China's 5G rollout as covered in a previous article).
See here:
"Wuhan Future City, located in eastern East Lake High-Tech Development Zone, is one of the four concentrated talent bases for major State-owned enterprises and the only 'future science and technology town' approved by the State Council for central and western regions."
**7. Is the Coronavirus Epidemic a Race-Based Bioweapon?**I don't know if I would exactly classify this as a NWO agenda, but a race-based bioweapon is certainly a likely possibility here.
Consider that virtually all known deaths from the coronavirus epidemic thus far have been in China. Only around 4 deaths outside of China have been reported - 1 in the Philippines on February 1st, 1 in Japan on February 13th and 2 in Iran on February 20th.
Lance Walton (VDare.com) has written several articles asking why no one is talking about it.
He points out how WHO (World Health Organization) Director-General Tedros Ahanom Ghebreyesus declared that he opposed travel bans.
ZeroHedge.com quoted him as saying that,
"We reiterate our call to all countries not to impose restrictions that unnecessarily interfere with international travel and trade. Such restrictions can have the effect of increasing fear and stigma, with little public health benefit."
If the virus doesn't discriminate based on race, and just weakens or kills anyone, then the public health benefits of banning people would be great.
However, if the virus does indeed discriminate on race, and only targets East Asians, then the WHO head's comments make sense.
This raises yet more questions:
If the COVID-19 is a race-based bioweapon, who created it?The US?Israel?How did they sneak it into China and release it?

A screenshot of the opening ceremony of the Wuhan Military Games proclaiming a 'New World.'

Conclusion - Coronavirus Epidemic Being Used to Push NWO AgendasInterestingly, the opening ceremony of the Wuhan Military Games declared a "New World" (see above image of a screenshot from the opening ceremony) which suggests the phrase New World Order and also suggests societal transformation:
yet another clue that this entire event was pre-planned...
Whatever the truth turns out to be about the origin of the virus itself,
who created it, how it was released and whether it is really as dangerous as is hyped,
...there can be no doubt that the entire coronavirus epidemic phenomenon is being used to accelerate several NWO agendas in typical problem-reaction-solution style...

WaykiChain CSO, Wayki Sun: Vaulting Ambitions Carried Boundless Energy

“Here we must run as fast as we can just to stay in place.”.
— — — Alice in Wonderland
Once, this was just a fairy tale, but now, in the blockchain industry, it has become the reality. The fairy tale came true in the blockchain industry.
Looking back on 2019, the world’s various uncertainty still while blockchain takes the real lead Having the whole world in view, the stablecoin project Libra has become a subject of the U.S. Congress, starting off the tremendous craze in blockchain worldwide, by storm; while Chinese government introduces a new policy that lists blockchain as an important breakthrough for its innovation focus.
It is in this historical turning point that Waykichain has successfully completed its own transformation.
Coping with the times, the reflection of the trend
At WaykiChain’ inception, WaykiChain entered the industry via the most appropriate entry point prediction, which its full enthusiasm has been frustrated by the policy of cognitive. Since then, Waykichain has retreated to ecosystem co-building. By providing one-stop help for the outstanding developers from all over the world, Waykichain has launched dozens of DApps in order to build its own public chain ecosystem.
There are full of obstacles and difficulties. Waykichain team has paid great attention and affection to the whole process. From technology, operation, promotion to marketing, all of which have caught up to the front of the industry in such experience and exploration.
As Wayki Sun, the “godfather” said, said: “The old conscious classicalists are always afraid of the arrival of new things, however, the efficient and advanced new system is so unstoppable.”
The changes in the industry have made some people like falling into ice caves but crying without tears, while others have ushered in more possibilities.
The key lies in whether the pulse of the development of the industry has been observed and the opportunities given by the times have been seized. In this way, even the detours will eventually become a rainbow to success.
All previous attempts and explorations let us deeply understand that innovation is not to take shortcuts, but to take root in the deepest reality, solve the problems of specific business scenarios, and match the rigid demand that lies deep inside of our users.
Taking the ecosystem as a breakthrough, Waykichain finally set its target in the financial direction.
Huatong Securities is the first case of Waykichain successfully landing in a business application scenario. As a successful precedent for cryptocurrency cross-border finance,
Huatong Securities has brought significant returns to investors in a series of new digital currency businesses. Data shows that some investors who participated in the subscription of new shares through Huatong Securities have achieved a return of over 30% in recent months. Through WUSD as the access channel, investors who have not been able to get involved in this field can also participate in it without obstacles.
Waykichain’s long-term: based on core values
Facing the rapid changes in the market, WaykiChain innovated from time to time, constantly iterating new ways of business paths. In the face of the uncertainty of the world, Waykichain has always adhered to its long-term, and through its internal cultivation, it used its own certainty to deal with the uncertainty of the world.
Such long-term is exactly the core value of Waykichain:
Firstly, WaykiChain will continue to maintain as a global leader in public chain technology and mechanisms.
The four-letter codes “Long”, “Teng”, “Tiger”, and “Yue” signify the roadmap of the future evolution of the Waykichain public chain. In the current “Teng” stage of the public chain, Waykichain not only achieved a global leader in a number of hardcore technical indicators such as TPS (average stable at 3300, peak 7800), transfer speed but also reached the industry in terms of the underlying logic and technical architecture. Leading positions, such as the construction of stablecoin systems and DEX at the bottom of the public chain, have surpassed the general contract-based construction in terms of security, stability, scalability, the convenience of paying fees, etc. The decentralized cross-chain technology completed at the end of the quarter will bring cross-chain assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum to Waykichain, which will stimulate tens of billions of value liquidity; and the upcoming integration of the WASM virtual machine will also allow Waykichain acquires dual virtual machine engines for higher compatibility and performance.
“Publicchain is still in the era of clash of Titans. When all goes to all, technology will win out.” As Wayki's assertion of the public chain’s technical status, these explorations of public chain technology and mechanism have not only given WaykiChain the greater commercial application potential of public chain, also allows the public chain facilities built on it to have a stronger industry competitive advantage.
Secondly, vigorously expand the supporting construction of the commercial scene around Waykichain.
Regardless of whether it was cut through my prediction at the beginning, or then focused on the application ecosystem, or currently grasping the financial direction, although the rudder is constantly adjusting, the voyage of exploring the business model has never stopped.
At present, a complete set of decentralized financial system surrounding the stable coin WUSD of Waykichain has taken shape, and the profit model and commercial development path built on this financial system have become increasingly clear, including cross-border finance, cross-border payment, decentralization currency, denominated currencies, financial derivative transactions, etc. will all be important business application scenarios for Waykichain. On the last day of 2019, the WICC’s total network mortgage volume has exceeded 16 million, and the main destination of the WUSD loan is Huatong Securities’ cross-border financial investment.
Breaking Technology Silos: High Global Consensus
Owning, without connecting, will eventually become a technology island. What Waykichain does is to link realistic business scenarios and huge users outside the circle, and finally form a high degree of global consensus.
The so-called consensus is people’s identification of the same thing and a community of unanimous beliefs. The extent to which this matter can reach consensus also determines its commercial value. It can be said that consensus is the root of the development of public chain and the entire commercial building. The global high consensus is the development direction of all blockchain projects.
And such a high degree of consensus involves many aspects, including not only the global leader in the technology and mechanism of Waykichain mentioned above, the supporting construction of business scenarios, etc., but also other important parts:
Internationalization of the Waykichain Team. At present, Waykichain has gathered a group of elite troops with great dedication, a sense of mission and a sense of belonging. This is the result of Waykichain’s long-term implementation of the introduction, cultivation and elite precipitation of outstanding personnel. In the future, the Waykichain team will be further internationalized. Through the international team, a global communication circle will be built to help the global strategic layout;
Introducing strategic investments such as top global venture capital. No matter whether the previous contact with Softbank or being invited to attend the Global Blockchain High-end Private Conference in Dubai, we are preparing for the introduction of the world’s top venture capital and this will strengthen the brand endorsement and help Waykichain’s extension Breakthrough development.
Strengthen technical cooperation with governments and large institutions. Earlier, WaykiChain had conducted returning visits with the Montenegrin government and had an in-depth exchange of views on the blockchain technology reform in the field of Montenegro International Trade and Finance. Through such high-standard technical cooperation, it can not only improve the operating efficiency of related fields but also accumulate rich experience and capital market reference for more national-level cooperation of Waykichain;
Launch more world first- and second-tier exchanges. Last year, Waykichain successfully launched Gate.io and Bithumb and other international first-tier exchanges, and other first-tier and second-tier exchanges are also actively contacting.
Through the creation of a high degree of global consensus, Waykichain will ultimately be given more business value and promote the landing of a business application ecosystem.
The magic weapon to win the future: Massive community expansion
The magic weapon to win the future is not how much resources you have, but how many resources you can mobilize. For this reason, in addition to having a high degree of consensus on a global scale, we also need a huge community as a vehicle that can be scheduled.
At present, through the global partner and ambassador system of various countries, Waykichain has formed a number of international communities around the world with Waykichain ambassadors as its core. Among them, 41 community managers (including global ambassadors) from 15 countries including U.S, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, South Korea, Turkey, the Philippines, Russia, Spain, Ukraine, Bangladesh and Nigeria, including Nearly 30 international communities; and has held several offline events in Russia, Singapore, Turkey, Vietnam and South Korea.
On the basis of the achievements of single-point breakthroughs in some key countries and regions, we will continue to penetrate overseas markets and increase the frequency of offline meet-ups and overseas marketing activities. In the coming year, we plan to hold another 30 overseas offline meet-ups through official channels, and encourage and assist global volunteers to organize about 60 offline meet-ups on their own initiative.
Through the implementation of point-to-surface breakthroughs, we will continue to attract incremental users, and continue to expand the number of users in overseas communities while maintaining the steady growth of domestic communities, and truly form a situation of massive community expansion and a global chess market.
2020: Writing our own heroism
“Having a dream that doesn’t make you exhausted in this life, I think, is the best gift that life gives you.”
At that time, when the godfather wrote this sentence in the circle of friends, Waykichain was not born yet. But what happened in the next two years, we all know: once the seeds of dreams land, under the watering of ambition, not only take root, they are already germinating, they will grow wildly.
“To set a big goal, you must focus crazily and continue to work towards it.” This is not only the creed of Wayki but also his exhortation to the team. From top to bottom, with this “crazy energy” that constantly surpasses itself and pursues excellence, Waykichain is able to open its doors and build bridges on the road of technological evolution and in the cold winter of the industry.
On the high-speed track of the global public chains, WaykiChain built around the three dimensions of “core value as the foundation”, “global high consensus” and “mass community expansion”, the next goal will be to strive for the top five and even the top 3 positions of the global public chain. Let’s wait and see how this heroic epic belongs to us.

Germany’s Legislative Coalition Has A Standing Agreement To Prevent Market-Relevant Private Stablecoins Thomas Heilmann of the center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU) says Germany’s legislative coalition already has a standing agreement to prevent the operation of any “market-relevant private stablecoin.” As earlier reported by CoinNess, Germany’s federal cabinet will approve its blockchain strategy announced back in June 2019. While the move signals the country’s intent to be a part of the emerging global economy, the government-run ‘Bundes-chain’ might sound the latest death knell for Libra in Europe.
Libra Representatives Will Meet Officials From 26 Central Banks Facebook will be quizzed by global regulators on its planned Libra coin project amid concerns from EU governments over the threat the digital currency poses to financial stability. Representatives of Libra will meet officials from 26 central banks, including the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, in Basel on Monday (Sept 16) in the first major encounter between Libra’s founders and policymakers since Facebook unveiled its plans to upend global payments, officials told the FT.

In the last weekly forecast, we saw bitcoin price holding the key $10,000 support area against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair climbed higher and traded above the $10,000 resistance area. Moreover, there was a break above the $10,800 level and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). However, the price failed to continue higher and topped below the $11,000 resistance.
A swing high was formed near $10,954 and recently the price started a fresh decline. It broke the key $10,500 support area and the 100 SMA. Moreover, the price spiked below the $10,000 support area. Finally, a swing low was formed near $9,903 and the price is currently correcting higher. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10,954 high to $9,903 low.
However, the upward move is facing hurdles near the $10,400 and $10,500 levels. Additionally, the price is also struggling to climb above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $10,954 high to $9,903 low. If there is a break above the $10,450 and $10,500 levels, the price could continue to rise. The next key resistance is near the $10,800 level.

The United Nations set up a digital group research blockchain. Ma Yun Gates is co-chairman.

The United Nations set up a digital group research blockchain. Ma Yun Gates is co-chairman.
The United Nations established a digital group research blockchain, and Ma Yun Gates served as co-chair of the group
The UN News Center announced on July 12 that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres established the "United Nations Secretary-General's High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation" and clearly proposed to put blockchain technology on the agenda of the group.
It is reported that the group will bring together 20 celebrities from all walks of life to strengthen cooperation in the digital field by governments, the private sector, civil society, international organizations, technology and academia, and other relevant stakeholders. According to the news, the Secretary-General has announced the appointment of Melinda Gates (Mr. Bill Gates, Chairman of the Bill & Melinda Gates Fund Opportunity) and Ma Yun as co-chairman of the group.
The United Nations has been exploring the application of blockchain technology in humanitarian applications.
In April of this year, the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) began using blockchain technology to assist Syrian refugees, benefiting 10,000 people. In addition, the United Nations has implemented a digital identity system based on blockchain technology to combat global trafficking in children.
Gates keeps a distance from Bitcoin, but Microsoft has a long-term layout of the blockchain.
During Reddit Ask Me Anything in February this year, Bill Gates sneered at the cryptocurrency. Gates attacked the anonymity of virtual currency because they hindered the identification of anti-money laundering, anti-terrorist financing, and anti-tax evasion. In an interview with CNBC's Squawk Box, he said, "If there is a simple method, he will short the bitcoin."
But on the other hand, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been supporting blockchain projects, especially in Africa. In 2015, the foundation donated $100,000 to the Kenya Bitcoin merchant payment platform Bitsoko. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been driving the development of virtual currency in Africa because they can provide low-cost trading services for the poor.
In addition, Microsoft's layout in the blockchain field is also deep. In 2015, Microsoft launched the "Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS)" program. The program introduces blockchain technology to the Azure cloud computing platform to serve financial industry customers using Azure cloud services, allowing users to tailor their blockchain services to their business and innovation needs. In 2016, Microsoft further relied on Azure cloud services to launch the “Open, Modular Blockchain Component” program, using Microsoft's own architecture to create a blockchain enterprise ecosystem, and open a series of blockchain agreements to address early cross-spans. The problem of industry blockchain users is integrated in terms of platform openness, user identity, key management, privacy security, operations management and interactivity. In May of this year, Microsoft released the Azure blockchain work platform at the Global Developers Conference, which has been used by hundreds of companies. In June of this year, Microsoft acquired GitHub, a world-renowned software hosting platform, with a $7.5 billion Microsoft stock. GitHub is an important gathering place for blockchain projects, with more than 80,000 blockchain projects. In addition, Microsoft has expanded its strategic partnership with R3 to integrate R3's distributed ledger platform, Corda and R3Net, with Azure. Microsoft has also strengthened cooperation with super-books, the United Nations, and Cornell University's blockchain research groups to conduct blockchain research.
Ali is also actively trying blockchain business, Ant Financial is a pioneer
In July 2016, Ant Financial Services joined the blockchain technology in Alipay's love donation platform; in October 2016, Ali Financial Cloud and Yicheng Interactive jointly launched “Yunyou Mall”; in the same month, with Microsoft, Xiao ant, Fa Da, etc. Co-developing “Law Chain”; cooperating with PricewaterhouseCoopers in March 2017 to build a traceable cross-border food supply chain; investing in Symbiont in May 2017; and in August 2017, Ali Health and Jiangsu Changzhou will cooperate The joint + blockchain pilot project; in October 2017, Ant Financial CTO first disclosed the "BASIC" strategy, B is the blockchain; in November 2017, Tmall International announced the upgrade of the global origin traceability plan; the same month, Ali built the digital Xiong'an blockchain implementation platform; in January 2018, the ant blockchain was launched, and Xiong'an built a blockchain rental application platform; in February 2018, the rookie and Tmall International enabled blockchain technology tracking Logistics full link information on imported goods; in June 2018, AlipayHK launched the world's first blockchain-based e-wallet cross-border remittance service.
Among them, the most important thing to ignore is the breakthrough of Ant Financial in the cross-border remittance service of e-wallet based on blockchain. As early as 2016, Ma Yun proposed eWTP to make Ali's business worldwide, which requires worldwide data flow, capital flow, and material flow. Aliyun is responsible for data flow, rookie logistics is responsible for material flow, and cross-border flow of funds is the task of Ant Financial.
In fact, Ant Financial's use of blockchain technology for cross-border remittances is a part of Alipay's globalization. In the form of acquisition or investment or cooperation, Ant Financial has covered Alipay's globalization strategy to more than 70 countries and regions. For example, in the eight countries of Southeast Asia, support local Alipay wallets: Touch’n Go in Malaysia, Emtek in Indonesia, GCash in the Philippines, Paytm in India, Easypaisa in Pakistan, BKash in Bangladesh, AscendMone in Thailand, and Hellopay in Singapore. There are also Kakao Pay in Korea and Telenor in Norway.
In addition, Alipay's international partners include Worldpay in the UK, Concardis and Wirecard in Germany, Ingenico in France, Recruit in Japan, ICB and KICC in Korea, Supay in Australia, Magic Compass and IE money in New Zealand, Webmoney and Qiwi in Russia, and Boleto in Brazil.
All in all, Alipay's globalization strategy has begun to take shape. From AlipayHK's launch of the world's first blockchain-based e-wallet cross-border remittance service, the use of blockchain technology to support cross-border remittances may be around the world. Each country's “local Alipay” node builds a blockchain solution for cross-border remittance services.
Invited to serve as co-chair of the UN High-level Panel on Digital Cooperation, Ma said that in the DT era, data and technology are more widely available, which is an opportunity for all young people, small businesses and women. He is happy to join and promote global cross-disciplinary cooperation to create a digital future for universal young people.

Ether Thief Remains Mystery Year After $55 Million Digital Heist

Ether Thief Remains Mystery Year After $55 Million Digital Heist 2017-06-13 08:00:18.224 GMT
By Matthew Leising (Bloomberg Markets) -- Summer colds are the worst, and Emin Gün Sirer had caught a wicked bug from his 1-year-old son. So it was with watering eyes and a stuffy nose that the associate professor of computer science at Cornell found himself working from his sickbed on Monday, June 13, 2016. Gün—everyone calls him Gün—couldn’t tear himself away from his laptop. He had another type of bug in his sights, a flaw in a line of computer code he feared put $250 million at risk of being stolen. It wasn’t just any code. It was the guts of the newest breakthrough in software design related to blockchain, the novel combination of decentralized computing and cryptography that gave life to the virtual currency bitcoin in 2009. Since then, the promise of blockchain to transform industries from finance to health care has captured imaginations in corporate boardrooms and governments alike. Yet what the Turkish-born professor was exploring that Monday was the next leap forward from bitcoin, what’s known as the ethereum blockchain. Rather than moving bitcoin from one user to another, the ethereum blockchain hosts fully functioning computer programs called smart contracts—essentially agreements that enforce themselves by means of code rather than courts. That means they can automate the life cycle of bond payments, say, or ensure that pharmaceutical companies can authenticate the sources of their drugs. Yet smart contracts are also new and mostly untested. Like all software, they are only as reliable as their coding—and Gün was pretty sure he’d found a big problem. In an email sent to one of his graduate students, Philip Daian, at 7:30 p.m., Gün noted that the smart contract he was looking at might have a problem—on line 666. (They say the devil is in the details.) Gün feared the bug could allow a hacker to make unlimited ATM-like withdrawals from the millions, even if the attacker, who’d have needed to be an investor, had only $10 in his account. This staggering amount of money lived inside a program called a decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. Dreamed up less than a year earlier and governed by a smart contract, the DAO was intended to democratize how ethereum projects are funded. Thousands of dreamers and schemers and developers who populate the cutting edge of computer science, most of them young, had invested in the DAO. This was real money, a quarter of a billion dollars, their money, meant to build a better version of the world, and every cent was at risk. Gün, who wears his dark hair short and looks a decade younger than his 45 years, had already been tracking and publicizing flaws in the DAO’s design. A few weeks earlier, on May 27, along with two colleagues, he’d urged investors to stop buying into the DAO until security issues could be fixed. It had been too late, however, and the program went live the next day. Smart contracts such as the DAO are built to be entirely reliant on their code once released on the ethereum blockchain. That meant the DAO code couldn’t be fixed. Other blockchain experts—including Peter Vessenes, co-founder of the Bitcoin Foundation—had also pointed out security flaws in the smart contract, but Gün appears to be the first to pinpoint the flaw that put the money in jeopardy. The problem was the code was so new that no one knew what to ­expect—or even if there was actually a problem in the first place. Gün had his doubts, too. This wasn’t even his job. He does this for fun. Daian didn’t think they’d found anything either. Over email, he said, “We might be up the creek ;).” Later, when Gün pointed to the error in line 666, Daian replied, “Don’t think so.” Gün says, “We don’t sound the alarm bell every time we find a bug that seems suspicious.” Instead, he went to bed to try to kill his cold—the one bug he knew to be real. “I was too miserable to sort it out,” he says. Four days later, Christoph Jentzsch lay on the floor of his home office, taking deep breaths, trying not to panic. It was Friday morning, and software developers all over the Western world were waking up to the news that the DAO, which Jentzsch had created, was being attacked. Gün had been right. Jentzsch, who has dark hair and a perpetual five o’clock shadow, lives with his family in the Mittweida region of Germany, a rural spot not far from the Czech border. Mornings in the Jentzsch household are a whirlwind as he and his wife get their five children—age 2 to 9—fed and off to school. Yet today, after his brother Simon woke him with a call that the DAO was being hacked, Jentzsch had to ignore his familial duties. “You’ve got the kids,” he told his wife. “I have an emergency.”
This is the story of one of the largest digital heists in history. And while you may have heard last year that hackers breached Swift, the bank-to-bank messaging system, and stole $81 million from Bangladesh’s central bank, the DAO attack is in a different category altogether. It played out in front of anyone who cared to watch and couldn’t be stopped. Just as the global WannaCry ransomware attack in May laid bare weaknesses in computer operating systems, the DAO hack exposed the early frailties of smart-contract security and left many in the community shaken because they hadn’t found the bug in time. The aftermath would eventually pit good hackers against bad ones—the white hats vs. the black hats—in the strange and futuristic- sounding DAO Wars. The roots of the DAO belong to an idea Jentzsch borrowed from another internet-fueled phenomenon: crowdfunding. The 32- year-old Jentzsch, a theoretical physicist by training, and a few colleagues started Slock.it in 2015. As they considered how to fund the company, Jentzsch approached it as many had—sell a digital currency, effectively a token, to raise cash. But why should each new startup have to program its own initial coin offering? Jentzsch wondered. What if one huge fund ruled them all? He introduced his idea to the world at DevCon 1 in London in November 2015. “What is the blockchain way of creating a company?” Jentzsch asked his audience. “Of course, it has to be a DAO.” It would work like this: Ether, a virtual currency like bitcoin, would be used to fund and develop applications on the ethereum blockchain—things such as making a music app similar to iTunes or a ride-sharing service along the lines of Uber. Investors would buy DAO tokens with their ether; the tokens would allow them to vote to fund projects they liked. If the app they backed made money, the token holder shared in the profit. In the six months he spent creating the DAO, Jentzsch thought it would raise $5 million. From April 30 to May 28, the DAO crowdfunding pulled in $150 million. That’s when ether traded just below $12. As the price of ether rose in the following weeks to $20.75 the day before the attack, so too did the value of the DAO, putting a $250 million target on this thing Jentzsch had unknowingly brought into the world with a fatal, original sin. “Our hope was it would be the center of a decentralized sharing economy,” says Jentzsch, who now regrets not capping the amount raised. “For such a big experiment, it was way too early.” In the weeks after the attack, Jentzsch and the rest of the ethereum community would come to grips with their own crisis that, writ small, echoed the bank bailouts and government rescues of 2008. “It became too big to fail,” he says. But why would anyone invest in the DAO in the first place? It has something to do with the strain of digital libertarianism at the heart of the ethereum community, much like the set of beliefs that led to the birth of bitcoin. Think of bitcoin as the first global currency whose use can’t be stopped by governments or corporations; on top of that, bitcoin is almost impossible to hack. Ethereum, then, is another level beyond. It’s an uncensorable global computer. As amazing and unprecedented as that is, it’s also a bit terrifying. Brought to life, the DAO ended up staggering off the table and turning on the community that wanted it so badly. Accustomed to working into the night to stay in touch with colleagues in North America, Jentzsch blows off steam by jogging or kayaking on the nearby Zschopau River. Yet on that Friday morning, he had the more pressing task of pulling himself up off the floor and dealing with the attack. “I went into emergency mode: Don’t try to save the DAO,” he says. “No, it’s over.”
It was far from over. Several hours later and half a world away from the Jentzsch household in Mittweida, Alex Van de Sande was waking up in his apartment in the Copacabana neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. The baby-faced ethereum developer had been born in the small fishing village of Santa Cruz Cabrália in the Bahia region of Brazil and moved with his parents to Rio when he was about 3 years old. These days he’s known as “avsa” on Reddit and Twitter. After reaching for his phone to see why it was blowing up with Skype messages, he turned to his wife and said, “Remember when I was telling you about that huge unhackable pile of money?” She nodded. “It’s been hacked,” he told her. His first thought was to get his DAO tokens out. He owned about 100,000 of them, valued at about $15,000 at the time. He’s the lead designer of the Ethereum Wallet app, a program that allows him and anyone else to interact with the blockchain. Van de Sande scrambled to log in to it, but his password didn’t work. It was glitching, and as he worked to fix it, his panic subsided. He realized he shouldn’t be bailing on the DAO but trying to save it. And to do that, he needed Griff. Griff Green, who’s worked variously as a massage therapist in Los Angeles and a community organizer in Seattle, is one of only a handful of people in the world who holds a master’s degree in digital currencies. He got it online, natch, from the University of Nicosia. A self-described “dreamer,” the 32-year- old is the closest thing Ethereumville has to a mayor. Green knows everybody; in fact, he’d been the first to relay word of the attack to Simon, Jentzsch’s brother and a co-founder of Slock.it. Green had been working for Slock.it for about six months by then and woke up that morning in the house belonging to Jentzsch’s mom in Mittweida. Jentzsch is one of nine children, so his mother had a spare bedroom where she could put Green up for a few days. Using his extensive contacts, Green started identifying as many people as he could who were interacting with the DAO—going so far as to ask strangers to send pictures or scans of their IDs—in an attempt to sort friend from foe. And then something strange happened: The attack stopped working. In the six hours since the attack began, the thief had managed to steal 30 percent of the DAO’s 12 million ether—which that day equaled about $55 million. “We don’t even understand why the guy had stopped,” says Van de Sande. Now Green raced to protect the remaining 70 percent of the DAO the attacker hadn’t stolen. Once Van de Sande got in touch with Green in Germany, along with two or three others, the foundation was laid for what would become known as the Robin Hood group—white hat hackers who’d devise a bold good-guy plan to drain the remaining DAO. To save the DAO, they’d have to steal the remaining ether, then give it back to its rightful owners. And yet as they scrambled that Friday, qualms emerged within the group. “What does it even mean to hack something?” Van de Sande asks. No one knew if what they were about to do was legal. Also, wouldn’t their hack look just as bad as the theft they were trying to stop? Then there were the practical issues. “Who pushes the button?” he remembers wondering. Doing so would initiate their counterattack and alert the community. “Someone has to push the button.” The price of ether the night before the attack had hit an all-time high of just above $20. News of the hack sent it tumbling to $15 by the end of Friday, wiping out almost a half- billion dollars in market value. At that price, the DAO still held $125 million, and the Robin Hood group worried the attack would resume. They might be the only line of defense if it did, so Van de Sande agreed to use his DAO tokens to fuel their counterattack, thereby becoming a public face of the group. At this point, it might help to think of the DAO as the spacecraft in Alien after Ripley initiates the self-destruct sequence. To flee, she’s forced to use an escape pod. DAO investors had to initiate a similar sequence to deploy escape pods that would allow them to get their ether out of the DAO. The code that dictated the escape pods’ behavior is where the bug lived, so to steal the remaining DAO funds the Robin Hood group would have to be in a pod to exploit the flaw—and because of the way Jentzsch wrote the DAO, they had only a short window of time and just a few pods to choose from. A few minutes before launching the attack, Van de Sande joked on the group’s Skype chat, “Let’s go rob a bank!” No one laughed. “Not everyone really appreciated the humor,” he says. In his Copacabana apartment, Van de Sande readied to push the button on his laptop. Then, suddenly, he lost his internet connection. His router was down. “I was like, What the f--- is going on here?” he says. He had less than 30 minutes left to execute the Robin Hood hack. He frantically called NET, his Brazilian internet service provider, but couldn’t get past the automated customer ­service experience. He says the robotic voice told him, “We see there’s an internet issue in your neighborhood.” The irony was not lost on him: Here he was trying to steal millions of dollars from a robot but was being waylaid by another robot. “Then we missed,” he says. The window closed. He went from the high of feeling like they were about to come to the rescue of the vulnerable DAO to the crushing low of having their international connection severed by NET’s breakdown. He took his dog, Sapic—named after the one in Pedro Almodóvar’s All About My Mother—for a walk, then crawled into bed, defeated. The next morning was Saturday, and Van de Sande tried to reconvene the Robin Hood group to infiltrate ­another escape pod. But folks were busy and couldn’t get together. “We felt like the worst hackers in history,” Van de Sande says. “We were foiled by bad internet and family commitments.”
Who, exactly, were they at war with? No one really knows, but there are some clues. One address the attacker used is 0xF35e2cC8E6523d683eD44870f5B7c C785051a77D. Got that? Like everything else in a blockchain, a user’s address is an anonymous string of characters. But every address leaves behind a history on the blockchain that’s open for examination. Not that it makes sense to 99.9 percent of humankind, but Green gets it. To pull off his heist, the attacker needed to create a contract that would interact with the DAO. He did so on June 15 and deployed it in the early morning hours two days later, according to Green. Once activated, the attack contract started sending about $4,000 worth of ether through the attacker’s account every three or four minutes to drain the DAO. But where did the original money to fund the attack come from? To interact with the ethereum blockchain, every contract must be funded by an amount of ether. This attack contract was funded by two addresses, but tracing it further back becomes tricky. That’s because the second address used an exchange called ShapeShift to send 52 ether into its account on June 14. ShapeShift doesn’t collect any information on its users and says it turns one virtual currency, such as bitcoin, into another, like ether, in less than 10 seconds. While there are valid reasons for using ShapeShift, it’s also a great way to launder digital assets and ­cover your tracks. After the attack contract stopped working, the thief needed to deploy it again, says Green. He tried but failed, and after a few more transactions, the hack whimpered to an end. (One possible reason the attack stopped, Green says, is that the hacker’s tokens became corrupted, which means he had no way to exploit the bug.) We know this limited amount of one-sided information from the blockchain’s public record. Digital asset exchanges see both sides. An internal investigation by one such exchange concluded that the DAO attacker was likely part of a group, not a lone wolf, based in Switzerland, according to an executive there who wouldn’t speak on the record or allow the company’s name to be used. ­Exchanges are in the unique position of being able to analyze the trading activity of their customers because they know who they are, even if they’re anonymous on the blockchain. The executive says the exchange shared the analysis with the Boston office of the FBI, though there’s been no further contact since October of last year. Cornell’s Gün says he also spoke to the Boston office of the FBI—and to agents in the New York office and to the New York State Attorney General’s Office. “It’s very difficult to coordinate an attack of this kind without leaving breadcrumbs behind,” Gün says. He encouraged the FBI to look at the ethereum testnet, where programmers can run their code in a safe environment to work out kinks. The attacker wouldn’t just launch such a complicated hack without testing it, Gün says he told federal officials, and the feds might be able to get clues to his identity there. Gün says he also pointed them to addresses linked to the attacker, such as the one described above, that were listed by his grad student Daian on his blog. (The FBI declined to comment.) “I’m absolutely amazed. Why has no one traced this back and found out who did it?” asks Stephan Tual, the third co-founder of Slock.it. “It still bugs me to this day, because what that person has done is incredibly unethical.”
On Tuesday, four days after the initial attack, the hacker returned and somehow resumed the heist. The Robin Hood group had feared this moment would come and was ready. Early Sunday morning they’d finally managed to convene online and successfully infiltrate an escape pod, but had held off their counterattack. Now they had no choice. One strike against the group was their distance from one another—one in Rio, others scattered about Europe. (Some of the group’s members didn’t want to be identified for this story.) It was important that they coordinate their activities because, like in Charlie’s Angels, they all had different specialties: Green the community organizer, Van de Sande the public face, others who wrote the Robin Hood group attack contracts. So Van de Sande needed to be walked through the step-by-step hacking process they were about to unleash, because that wasn’t his area of expertise. “I’ll be honest, I was excited,” Green says. “This is the craziest thing that’s ever happened to me. This is the craziest thing that’s almost ever happened to anyone.” Whether it was legal remains an unanswered question. “You literally have cyber ninjas warring on the blockchain,” says Vessenes, the programming expert. “What they’re doing is almost certainly illegal, but they’re claiming it’s for the greater good.” And now it was Van de Sande’s job to let the community know that the Robin Hood group counterattack was benign. He took to Twitter, where he wrote “DAO IS BEING SECURELY DRAINED. DO NOT PANIC.” A nod to the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, his plea to not panic was met with all the snark and real-life concern Twitter can handle. “NOTHING SAYS DO NOT PANIC LIKE ALL CAPS,” one user responded. “#RealLife is more exciting than

MrRobot !!” tweeted another. Yet as the Robin Hood group attack

gained steam, they noticed something strange and worrisome—the attacker was with them in every escape pod. “We escaped the mother ship, but now we’re alone in space with the alien we were trying to escape,” says Van de Sande. This was a big problem. Because of how Jentzsch wrote his code, the Robin Hood group would have to wait several weeks before they could secure the ether they recovered. Yet if the attacker was in that escape pod with the group, he could just follow them—what’s known as a stalking attack. If the hacker stalked the Robin Hood group, the ether wasn’t really safe after all. “The game only ends when one of these parties doesn’t show up to fight,” Van de Sande says. This, in essence, is the heart of the DAO Wars, the never-ending battle that would have to be waged to keep the recovered ether safe. If only there were a way to reverse the theft once and for all.
What happened next is one of the strangest and most contentious episodes in blockchain’s early history. The morning of July 20 dawned cool and clear in Ithaca, N.Y., the home of Cornell. A weeklong ethereum boot camp on campus had brought developers and programmers from all over the world to town. The mood was anxious, but not because the workshops were about to begin. This was the day the ethereum community would decide to rewrite the past. The weeks since the DAO hack had been filled with acrimonious debate as developers, coders, investors, and other community members considered their options to undo the theft. As the Robin Hood group battled the attacker mostly in private, a public debate was raging. The white hat hackers weren’t the only ones trying to save the DAO. Jentzsch worked almost around the clock, fielding hundreds of requests from DAO investors on what they should do. Vitalik Buterin, 23, who created the ethereum blockchain before he was 20, became a focal point as he led the community through their options. In short, what they could do was change the ethereum blockchain to fix the DAO, but only if they got a majority of computers running the network to agree to a software update. Pull that off, and it’s as though the attack never happened. This is known as a hard fork. The decision stirred such strong reactions that it remains controversial a year later, both within the ethereum community and with bitcoin users who insist a blockchain’s history is never to be tampered with. In an interview in October, Buterin was unapologetic about pushing for the change. “Some bitcoin users see the hard fork as in some ways violating their most fundamental values,” said Buterin, who didn’t respond to requests to speak specifically about this story. “I personally think these fundamental values, pushed to such extremes, are silly.” Within the ethereum community, at least, Buterin’s views won the day, and computer nodes all over the world accepted the fork. Contained in block 1,920,000, the fix to the DAO was simple and did only one thing—if you had ether invested in it, you could now get it out. But why hadn’t the attacker made off with his money? It had been more than a month. The same code that exposed the DAO to the theft, in the end, enabled the ether to be returned. Everything to do with the DAO is a parameter: rules, if-then statements, and more rules that are all finalized before the program is set loose. One of these parameters stated that anyone wanting to get their ether out of the DAO had to wait a certain amount of time—27 days after the initial request, then another seven days. This fail-safe, written by Jentzsch, applied to the attacker as well. So even though somebody had effectively robbed a bank, he then had to wait 34 days before crossing the street to make his getaway. While he was waiting, the money was stolen back. A month after the original heist, the ether thief now had nothing to show for his caper. Back on the Cornell campus, ethereum boot camp attendees celebrated. The next day, Gün brought Champagne to the session he was teaching. He’d pasted makeshift labels on the Chandon bottles with a picture of the utensil that said, “Congratulations on the successful fork.” Then something else unexpected happened. The original ethereum blockchain, the one with the DAO attack in it, kept growing. Imagine a hard fork is a branch of a tree that sprouts in a different direction at the end of the main limb. The end of that limb is supposed to wither after a hard fork, but here it continued to grow as a small group of users continued to process transactions on that version of the blockchain. Instead of dying, this became a second form of ethereum, quickly dubbed ethereum classic, complete with a digital currency that now had value. Even in the ­science fiction world of blockchain, this was an unprecedented turn of events. It meant the DAO attacker suddenly had about 3.6 million ethereum classic coins in his DAO account, known as the DarkDAO, which were slowly gaining in value. The Robin Hood group held about 8.4 million, because in this parallel universe they still controlled 70 percent of the DAO funds they had recovered. The Robin Hood group couldn’t believe it. “We did everything to avoid this, but now we’re being dragged back into this fight,” Van de Sande says. Now, the bitcoin supporters who viewed the hard fork as a violation of the core values of blockchain could back up their belief by buying ethereum classic. That’s exactly what entrepreneur Barry Silbert, a heavyweight in bitcoin circles, did. “Keep in mind, the original chain is ethereum classic,” he says. “The fork is ethereum.” Putting his money where his mouth is, Silbert’s firm, Grayscale Investments, recently issued an investment thesis outlining the benefits to ethereum classic over ethereum. A section heading sums up the rationale: “The DAO and the Death of Principles.” Alexis Roussel, co-founder of Bity.com, a digital currency broker in Switzerland, still marvels at the aftereffects of the hard fork and the wild world of the blockchain. “This is something that doesn’t happen in traditional finance,” he says. “If something happens with Apple, you don’t suddenly have a clone of Apple.”
It’s been about a year since the DAO attack, enough time to take stock of what went wrong. Van de Sande is eager to move on. “It was really just a blip,” he says. “We are ready to move past it and leave the DAO story behind us.” Green, who’s organizing an ethereum conference at this summer’s Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, has kept a sense of humor about it. “The Robin Hood group was just a s--- show,” he says with a laugh. “I hope the movie portrays it better than it actually was.” As for the bug itself, apparently many smart people looked at the code before Gün but missed one major flaw. The order of commands in the code allowed DAO token holders to withdraw any profit they’d made from their investments. It reads “withdrawRewardFor(msg.sender)” and adds, almost improbably, a note to anyone reading the code that says, “be nice, and get his rewards.” That’s line 667—let’s call it “The Neighbor of the Beast Bug.” If the withdraw line had come after these lines:
totalSupply -= balances[msg.sender]; balances[msg.sender] = 0; paidOut[msg.sender] = 0; return true;
the attack wouldn’t have been possible, Jentzsch says. But if the code had been in the correct order, the reward parameter wouldn’t have worked. As for the note, this line of code was meant to allow investors to withdraw any profit—“Reward”—their investments had earned. Instead it became one of the biggest backdoors in hacking history. It would have been better to not pay rewards during the split function from the DAO, what we’ve been referring to here as the escape pods, according to Jentzsch. Another decision he made when he had no idea of the bug shows how quirky and unforgiving code can be. “If the capital ‘T’ in line 666 had been a small ‘t,’ that would also have prevented the hack,” he says. Jentzsch has many regrets but insists no one was aware of the specific problems in lines 666-667 (other observers had pointed to flaws in other lines, just not here). Had more people looked, “it would have made no difference at all,” he says. “If you don’t know what to look for in a security audit, you won’t find it.” Even Gün, who had it in his grasp, let it go. “I still missed it,” he says. Green’s emotions are still raw related to Gün. “I actually got really pissed at him about this,” Green says. “He started bragging about how he found the bug.” He adds that it was “very irresponsible of him to not tell anyone of his inkling.” Still, Green “respects the hell out of Gün” and says they’ve since made amends. Asked to recount that night last June as he lay sick in bed, Gün says, “I came away from this thinking there’s potentially an issue.” But he’d consulted Daian, his grad student (“whom I trust”). Daian had said it’s “not exploitable.” Gün says that had he been certain of the danger, “I would have told people.” In a blog post that explained the mechanics of the DAO heist Daian published the night of the attack, he gave a shoutout to his professor in the acknowledgments. “Gün, we were so damn close—sorry it wasn’t quite enough this time :),” Daian wrote. As for the attacker (whoever he or she or they are) and the ethereum classic booty, Gün says, “Great, wonderful, he should cash out.” The hard fork proved it wasn’t just the DAO that needed to be fixed, but the ethereum blockchain itself. He says: “The fault lies somewhere on the system side as well.” But the fear that smart contracts are too clever by half and that by extension so is the ethereum blockchain itself—prevalent in the days following the DAO attack—has dissipated. At least that’s the market’s verdict, judging by the price of ether. After the attack, it traded from $10 to $12 for about nine months. Then in March it took off; it’s valued at $341.19 as of June 12. (That would have valued the DAO at $4.1 billion, but let’s not even go there.) Ethereum classic has risen as well, and it now trades for $18.71. Both versions of ether remain viable, in other words. The thief holds one; the revisionists, the other. Going forward, the choice is really: Whom would you rather believe? Since the hard fork, the attacker ended up making off with his ethereum classic. That means he got away with about $67.4 million, assuming the stash hasn’t been sold. Not too shabby, 0xF35e2cC8E6523d683eD44870f5B7cC785051a77D.

Our Advisors:

 
Our advisory team consists of advisors who believe in the long lasting success of the project. They have been carefully selected to help built RightMesh over multiple years of operation and are not involved solely for the token generation event.
 
Our advisors include:
 
 

Academic Research:

 
Academic research has been core to the design and development of RightMesh thus far, and will continue to be a key driver for us in the future. RightMesh works closely with Universities on academic research on mesh networks, blockchain technology, and payment channels. We are working on research with the University of British Columbia on density simulation and payment channel development. Since early 2017, we’ve been conducting research on mesh networks and connectivity in Arctic / remote regions with:
 
 
We've received grants from NSERC, MITACS and CIRA to support pilot programs thus far and are submitting a MITACS cluster grant to support over 100 graduate student units over the next 3-5 years. This research covers everything from how to design relevant mesh apps in the communities the mesh is operating in, to performance evaluation of the network protocols, to scalability of micropayment channels.
 

Technology:

 
It is also important how the mesh is designed for scalability reasons. Most mesh networking solutions are built around a store and forward and broadcast mechanism. This mechanism is not scalable and congests the network causing complete breakdown of the network. Even a small amount of devices can quickly cause exponential traffic resulting in extremely high delay and low effective throughput for apps running on broadcast protocols. In the RightMesh network, devices directly communicate with another device, and make smart routing decisions along the way.
 
RightMesh implements autonomous role topology/mesh creation layer - which means devices in the RightMesh network will autonomously detect each other and connect - user intervention in the network role is minimized .
 

Other key tech differentiators include:

 
We don't broadcast data. We compute a route between devices. Our protocol was built to use multiple paths (most use a single path and have long recovery times on a broken connection). The RightMesh network protocols can failover, or use multiple paths at the same time. RightMesh doesn't require the phone to be rooted. RightMesh doesn't require extra hardware. RightMesh can share existing Wi-Fi or Cellular Data, many others can only share Cellular Data.

Hello, First, congratulations on the big idea! I'm definitely a supporter. (1/2) My question is how far are you into testing your mesh network?

 
Thank you! We’ve spent the last 1.5 years or so building the protocol stack from the ground up, and so most of the testing that has been done has been around testing the functionality of the stack - including node discovery, single-hop and multi-hop communication, multi-path routing, forming mesh networks with heterogeneous wireless links, and app integration.
 
And over time, we steadily have been improving our end-to-end reliable communications protocol. The protocol originally achieved somewhere on the order of a few kbps when we first started because we did e2e acks on every packet. We have since moved to sliding window and selective ack mechanism which has allowed the performance to climb closer to the Mbps range. However, we still have more work to do in order to achieve the theoretical maximums of the individual links (and even faster if combining links).
 
In terms of testing of the scale of a RightMesh network, we've tested with up to 10 hops on a single path, but can likely support more. Right now the largest offline mesh we've had is 30 devices, limited only by the number of devices we had available at that moment in time.
 
Building a performance evaluation framework is one of our next immediate and important tasks, where we can evaluate the performance of the network under various test conditions - for example how the network behaves based on density, and how does the number of hops impact the response time and data that flows through the network.
 

(2/2) Can I assume I'll only be able to participate if I'm in the surrounding locations? For example: Someone in Indonesia is using RightMesh to try and connect to the internet. Is there a possibility for me to help them if I live in a different country? Thank you and keep up the good work.

 
To be a participant in a RightMesh network, you will have to be in close vicinity with another RightMesh powered node (smartphone) in order to be connected to a network. However, it will be possible for community members to operate devices that provide a “superpeer” layer. These would be fixed nodes with stable, reliable, and ideally fast internet connections. They would provide relaying between different geographically separate meshes - for instance between two neighbourhoods that are too far apart for one mesh to cover them both. They would be required to provide tokens in order to facilitate the channels that need to be made between the buyers and sellers. This would allow them to charge a fee for having their tokens locked up in the channels.
 
We will also open source the superpeer, so people will be able to work off our reference superpeer implementation and build their own custom superpeers. This would let them control the strategy the superpeer uses to allocate tokens into channels. We expect to have a release of the superpeer which supports payment channels by next week. At this point in time the solution is proof-of-concept stage, but some testing has been done to support two meshes communicating with each other through a superpeer where the data seller in each mesh is compensated by buyers in each mesh.

What do you see as the biggest challenge with taking your technology to market and hitting your usegrowth targets?

 
Density is the biggest challenge of mesh technologies, and one of the reasons why token economies are required to incentivize users to share their signal when it is available.
 
We are looking to bring in users into the RightMesh ecosystem through the work they do in the network, and provide them economic incentives that will encourage further action. What defines work? Being a part of a relay node in the network for instance - that reduces barriers to entry. Or incentivizing users for taking actions in the app or to consume content such as ads. The more opportunities there are for users to earn, the more people that will join, the more developers that will join the ecosystem, leading to more opportunities, and the network effects loop should grow stronger.

(1/3) What is the theoretical maximum mesh size?

 
There isn't really a theoretical limit. We don't have any hard caps on devices in our code, however locally there may be limitations from individual phones. For instance, I've seen some phones in hotspot mode which only support 6 clients connected to it. On other phones sometimes, as few as 3-4 BT connections. So there are some constraints on the topology and the maximum number of connections one device may have, but it is limited more by the devices, the chipset and Android, rather than our software. We can also get around some of these limitations still using our switching technology, however, this will have a noticeable impact on delay.
 

(2/3) Does the transfer rate for users slow as the mesh size increases?

 
This is less a function of the number of users, or devices, and more a function of the demand on the network. A network with many devices and few users actually requesting traffic may perform better than a small network where all of the users are requesting lots of traffic. There is some overhead in the protocol to maintain the connectivity of devices, however this will be minimal in impact compared to the load of traffic from all of the devices. It also depends on where the traffic is going. If it internal to the mesh it may be possible with a dense mesh that RightMesh could support high throughput internally. The bottlenecks would likely occur in cases where there is lots of traffic which requires the Internet, and there are too few people willing to sell or donate Internet data into the network. Compared to other meshes howevever because RightMesh can support multiple paths, we can split the load across all available Internet connections rather than doing something more naiive like rely only on the closest one, for example.
 

(3/3) How do you plan to test a large scale mesh prior to launch?

 
There is lots that we can do with simulation, or combining simulations with some real devices. We also have a large team in Bangladesh that can help support field tests in some very different environment that we are used to in Vancouver.
 
Further, we are working with researchers at UBC and Guelph so that graduate students can apply some of the latest research methods in simulation and performance evaluation to RightMesh. (I myself have a PhD that relied heavily in this area, and we have several other PhDs on the team who can provide expertise to graduate students in this area. We are also working with some other top researchers in this area who will help in ensure we are straining and breaking the network as much as possible before launch).
 
To be more specific, it will be a combination of stressing various components of the system one at a time, along with tests that stress all of the components at once. We are also building software that can automate various scenarios to test how the phones and the library can handle different topologies and connectivity. Before we consider it ready for launch however, we'll need some wide scale tests with real devices and real traffic. This will likely happen by working with friendly partners who believe in the benefits of what the mesh can provide in very localized applications (think a train schedule app in a crowded city for example). This will inevetiably result in parts of the protocol breaking, which will iteratively repair.
 
Once we are satisfied that the network as a whole can maintain stability, tokens properly account for the data being used (verified on the public testnets), and that users of these early partner apps are having a good user experience, we will deploy to the public network.

Have you had direct interest from large enterprise clients wishing to use the mesh technology in their apps/content strategy as yet, or are you having to reach out to them to generate interest?

 
Yes, RightMesh has been receiving direct inquiries from major corporations and organizations every day. These companies are largely interested in reaching emerging markets and regions where connectivity is an issue, and has been inaccessible until now. Mesh technology, being so new, will enable new types of applications to emerge that have not previously been possible, so proof of concepts for both RightMesh and partners will be a key focus. We’re actively in discussion with companies who are interested in integrating RightMesh into mobile applications, dApps, IoT devices and other hardware products to develop pilot projects.
 
In addition to these inbound inquiries, we have an outbound strategy as well, where we’ve identified key verticals that would benefit from mesh enabled applications. In the near term, over the next year while we harden the RightMesh protocol, we plan to focus on working with partners who provide services like emergency communications, distance education, medical services, and messaging applications, to name a few.
 
We see the need to work with a variety of different types of partners from international NGOs to brand names in order to test various use cases (ex. emergency medical alerts or content distribution from content providers). Our partnership strategy will evolve over time as our protocol matures.
 
We will publish announcements as per our effective disclosure policy once anything is material.
 
If your organization is interested in discussing a partnership or collaboration with RightMesh, we'd love to hear from you! Please email us at [email protected].

First let me say this product is revolutionary, I know if availability is solved there is no reason not to use this. My question is regarding your choice of an erc20 token, wasn't it more suitable to choose something like IOTA for constant payment of internet access? Are you planning for the payments to be made every second per MB consumed or something like that? Thanks

 

Related question: How exactly to you intend to use microtransactions considering high Tx fees from the Ethereum network?

 
Thank you very much for your feedback!
 
First, for context, let’s explain why and how RightMesh is using blockchain technology. Firstly, the protocol is integrated with Ethereum to uniquely identify each node (smartphone/device) in the mesh network by assigning it a MeshID in a similar way that a MAC address is assigned an IP address. Secondly, participation in the network is incentivized through an ERC20 token, called RMESH, and the network uses a custom implementation of µRaiden to allow for micropayments of micro amounts of data in the network.
 
We are supporters of Ethereum and its strong development community. Scalability and reducing transaction fees are two of the biggest challenges that the Ethereum community is working on now. But, while that is happening, we have also been looking at our own protocol design to minimize the need of Ethereum transactions and tackle the problem of scalability.
 
Every microtransaction that occurs on a RightMesh network does not need to be secured on the blockchain - that is vastly inefficient. That’s why we’ve been relying on a payment channel design based on µRaiden that allow micro transactions to occur in the network between nodes without transaction fees, and not being dependant on the blockchain for every transaction. We think this has to be a joint community effort, and so we’ve published the work we’ve done in porting the µRaiden libraries to Java to be used in our Android libraries.
 
We also believe that being a part of the Ethereum community also means contributing to it and helping it to move forward.
 
We hope that the work we have been doing on µRaiden and porting the libraries to other languages - specifically Java so it could be used in Android applications - will benefit other projects who plan to use the Ethereum network for microtransactions: https://github.com/RightMesh/microraiden-java

If Google/Alphabet succeed with Project Loon, will this damage RightMesh's market?

 
If Google’s Project Loon succeeds, it would be a win for everyone and the planet. The same goes for the SpaceX satellite initiatives, the OneWeb project, Facebook’s global internet initiatives, 5G networks, and the success of other mesh networking technologies in the blockchain space.
 
We each share the goal of bringing connectivity to the nearly 4 billion people who do not have access to internet and connectivity. At the end of the day, we, RightMesh, aim to lift millions out of poverty by providing them with access to the societal and economic benefits afforded by the internet and access to information. This is not something that can be solved by one entity. It will take the combination of different solutions and approaches to make this a reality.
 
One major strength of RightMesh is that we can solve last mile connectivity, which is incidentally complementary to many other projects in the space. There is a good opportunity for us to potentially collaborate with some forward-thinking wireless companies, MVNOs, and corporations working on global connectivity projects, to provide last mile delivery.
