Video Lessons Targeting Blockchain Technology Go Live On CCPPD’s Platform Following the news that XI Jinping, Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, addressed the importance of blockchain in making technological breakthroughs at the eighteenth group learning event organized by the Political Bureau of the Central Committee Oct 24, the Xuexi.cn platform led by the Publicity Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, or CCPPD, announced Oct 26 the launch of the video lessons targeting the blockchain technology. The videos with a total of 25 lessons mainly include the preliminary introduction to the blockchain technology, the consensus agreement, Bitcoin, Ethereum and smart contracts, blockchain performance improvement, blockchain security, the basic knowledge of big data, in-depth analysis of blockchain instances, as well as the concrete programming code examples.
The Bitcoin Financing Case Accepted By Chinese Court For The First Time A loan dispute caused by the Bitcoin pledge has been put on file in Wuchang District People’s Court, Hubei Province (lying in central China). According to the indictment, the defendant pledged Bitcoin to borrow money from the plaintiff to bet on the rise of the king coin. During the Bitcoin decline cycle in 2018, the plaintiff took measures to liquidate the position forcibly, but still suffered some losses. The defendant does not acknowledge the loan relationship, falling to a material breach. Lawyer SUN Jun from Shanghai SHENHAO Law firm indicated that the financial attribute of Bitcoin would be recognized for the first time in China.
For New Cryptography Law, China Took A Big Step In Right Direction, CZ Comments ZHAO Changpeng, also known as CZ, founder of Binance, reposted an article released by CoinDesk and titled “China’s Congress Passes Cryptography Law, Effective Jan. 1, 2020.” Regarding the issue, ZHAO commented, “This is big! The country with the biggest population on Earth, and one of the highest GDP growth in recent years, just took a big step in the right direction. What is your country gonna do? Follow or get left behind?”
Baidu Search Index For Blockchain Up By 894% In Past 7 Days Amid President XI Highlighting Blockchain Citing data by Baidu Search Index, in the past seven days, daily average searches for the word “Bitcoin” were 31,955, which was 108% more than that of the previous year and 60% more than that of the previous week; daily average searches for the word “blockchain” was 42,444, which was 349% more than that of the previous year and 894% more than that of the previous week. As previously reported by CoinNess.com, Chinese President XI Jinping said on Oct 24 that China would put more focus on blockchain development.

BTC/Bitcoin: The 2019 BlockShow Asia Summit will be held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore from November 14th to 15th.
In the past two days, there were heavy swing moves in BTC from the $7,500 support against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair rallied more than 20% and broke many hurdles near $8,500 and $9,000.
Moreover, there was a close above the $8,500 resistance area and the 100 simple moving average (4-hours). Finally, the price rallied above the $10,000 resistance and traded close to the $10,600 resistance area.
However, the bulls failed to remain in control and a top was formed near $10,591. Later, there was a strong downside correction below the $10,000 level. The price traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the rally from the $7,425 swing low to $10,591 high.

Cloudopt Adblocker is probably the best security plugin in the Eastern Hemisphere that can protect your security, prevent traces and malicious domain names, filter banner ads, pop-up ads, and video ads, all in real time.submitted by tbaby888 to browser [link] [comments]
Back in late 2016, we were thinking why where wasn't a browser extension with both security and ad-blocking functions. And after half a year of planning, prototyping, visual designing, developing and testing, we eventually finished a v1.0 version in June 2017. Then we invited many friends to internally test for 2 months. We built a high performance cloud security center based on Cloudopt Next, the web framework developed by the Cloudopt team. To better fit your browser, we designed the UI using Material Design and tuned it again and again for better experience.
Since the beta released in March 2017, through dozens of iterative upgrading, we produced a solution integrated of cloud security, ad-blocking and page acceleration, with good user experience. By today, we have evaluated about 400 thousand websites, analyzed over 10 million user comments about them. On average, every day the Cloudopt Security Center blocks 100 thousand various attacks, processes 500 thousand website evaluation request from users in China, Korea, Japan, America, Russia, and everywhere on earth.

What Cloudopt Adblocker does:
1. Intelligent reputation assessment
Through the production planning, we have been trying to break through existing patterns of security extensions and harassment interception extensions. For example, the traditional URL judging is kind of black-or-white, but Cloudopt Adblocker utilizes machine learning technology, dynamically assesses a website by dimensions such as popularity, user commonts, media comments, case judgements from courts and evaluations of third party security organizations. The assessment results in a score, which between 0-40 points represents danger, 40-60 points for potential threats, and over 60 for safe.
When you want to check the reputation and user comments of the site you are visiting, just click on the Cloudopt Adblocker extension icon and check them in the pop-up window.
screen shot of reputation assessment
If you are a Internet practitioner or know much about the Internet, we recommend you to open the potential threat detection option.
2. Phishing sites blocking

3. Miners blocking
Protects your browser from being used by bitcoin miners.
4. Malicous ads blocking and privacy protection
Prevents website from recording tracking and analyzing your behavior. Blocks harassment and annoying ads.
5. Cloud synchronization
If you login, Cloudopt Adblocker will support syncing configurations such as settings, allow list and deny list, with the cloud.
6. Security tips
There always are new phishing websites, event the reputation assessment cannot completely distinguish them. When you are visiting E-commerce, bank, game websites, Cloudopt Adblocker will pop tips respectively when it's safe, and when there's not the tips, you should be careful of the site.

7. bookmark searching
Sometimes we don't feel like to lookup for a bookmark, but rather to search for it. Cloudopt Adblocker pleasents you the bookmark searching function. When you input a keyword to a search engine, the matching bookmarks will be displayed. Google, Bing, Baidu and Navers are supported.
8. Full SSL encryption
Cloudopt Adblocker utilizes cloud technologies to provide better security protection, so it needs to connect to the Cloudopt Security Center. And to protect your data from being leaked even in an unsecured network, the connections will all be encrypted in SSL, and we passed the Qualys SSL Labs' A+ certification.
9. The Secure Keyboard
screen shots of secure keyboard
The secure keyboard automatically pops up when you need to input a password, to protect you from attacks by keyboard recording malwares. Qwerty and Workman keyboard layouts are supported, to fit normal and geek users’ need.

Is quantum resistance to protect against hacking, or against “fast mining” (preventing inequality between PoW miners)? How is it possible to guarantee quantum resistance? Isn’t our understanding of quantum computing just based on theories since quantum computers are not fully functional yet?Side chains will run parallel and be interoperable with the main chain. Side chains allow for new, more efficient, consensus mechanisms as well as smart contract functionality. Eventually other major blockchains will be interoperable with Hcash, through side chains and relays, DAG EVM for ETH, and other “Layer 2” solutions (Lightning Network for BTC and BTC forked code). Side chains allow for different scalability methods, flexibility and accessibility.
What do you mean by “exchange of value and valuable information”? Is this the exchange of coins and smart contracts?Quantum resistance is the protection against attacks made by quantum computers, which is currently contrasted by what we know about classical computers. Quantum computers weaken the security assumptions of certain types of cryptography, including ECDSA. If ECDSA were broken, attackers could steal balances in addresses that have made previous spends because the ECDSA public key for the address is revealed to the blockchain. Addresses with unexposed ECDSA keys will be resistant to this type of attack, as they are secured by RIPEMD160 and their ECDSA keys have not been revealed. Quantum resistance does not mean quantum proof. Quantum resistance means that quantum-based attacks do not have a significant advantage over the computers we have today. Based on what we currently know, our signature scheme is quantum resistant. No one knows what the future holds which is why it is important to always continue research and development into quantum resistant cryptography.
Imagine that in 2 years, a kid walks up to you and asks, “What do you do and how does it help society?”The “value” you are referring is not derived from our current understanding of value (fiat). The “true value” that blockchain systems hold is stored in the hashes themselves. Data and information is king.
An uninformed businessman who has no understanding of blockchain, but has heard Bitcoin approaches you. How do you explain your product and the benefits to him so that he remembers to give you a call the next day?We are one of many projects that helped build a more secure web of connected devices, and revolutionized peoples’ opinion on value and what really matters.
After reviewing the Hcash source code on GitHub https://github.com/HcashOrg/hcashd, I've found that almost all the Hcash main chain code has been written by SJTU (Shanghai Jiao Tong University), for example https://github.com/sammy00 https://github.com/yczhangsjtu. What have other contributors, such as the Nucleus Team, done for Hcash?Tell him to do his research on blockchain first before selling him on some grand idea. Smart investors grow a stable smart economy, not dumb money.
The main chain public repo hasn’t been updated very frequently.Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Lab of Cryptography and Computer Security is the primary contributor to the main chain code. It is no small feat to have the 4th best university in China working on this project. The Nucleus Team is working with them to finish main chain testing. After the main chain launch, the Nucleus team will focus on the future development for Hcash including our side DAG EVM and main chain Lightning interoperability.
When will the swap from Hshares to Hcash take place?Please refer to our new GitHub. The frequency of updates will increase as we approach/ pass the main chain launch.
What is the exact date of main chain launch?The swap to the main chain will take place after the main chain launch mid-February. Announcements will be made as to how and where you can swap your Hshares for Hcash.
Will you provide interoperability for all the existing blockchains?The main chain launch will take place mid-February. We are aiming for release on February 15th.
Will the interoperability between the blockchains support both transfer of data and transfer of value?We hope to provide interoperability for all blockchains in the future. That is a lot of work though. We will start with the larger chains that have healthy development and community sizes first. To make this easier, we plan to provide a back-end solution for new blockchains to make this process easier.
What is a block-less blockchain? Is this a traditional distributed system?Yes
How will Hcash bridge block-less and traditional blockchains?A block-less blockchain accomplishes the same goals as a traditional blockchain by using consensus to determine the order of transactions. A block-less blockchain, such as a DAG, allows for faster consensus without traditional block size requirements. Faster consensus means higher throughput.
What signature scheme will you use to achieve quantum resistance? Why?Through relays between our main chain and side DAG. A more technical analysis will be available in our upcoming yellow paper.
Provide an overview as to how inoperability will be achieved.Hcash is using the BLISS signature scheme. Hcash’s version of BLISS has been hardened to mitigate side channel attacks. BLISS was chosen for its efficient key and signature size.
Specifically, what is the theory behind Hcash’s interoperability?We will be using relays to Hashed Timelock Contracts for Lightning Network interop on our main chain, relays and colored coins that operate with our DAG EVM, bridges to side chains for more uncommon chains, and back-end protocols for newer blockchains.
What is the timeline for interoperability? Will this be the main focus of Hcash? When can be expect an Alpha version?This answer would be longer than the entire AMA. Unfortunately, the specifics will have to wait until the yellow paper release. In the meantime, I would read the Lightning Network whitepaper because it is an excellent source of information. You could also research BTC relays and EVMs.
How will swap values be calculated when switching between blockchains? Is it based on the current market value?We will be updating the roadmap in Q2. Interop timeframes will be easier to gauge after the main chain release. There are quite a few ideas around what we would like to tackle next, whether it would be assisting other projects on Lightning Network development, the DAG EVM implementation, or possibly both at the same time.
Will you update the whitepaper to include a comprehensive overview of interoperability, its theory and its exchange functions?Yes, it would be based on the current, real time market value.
Can you explain who will use the Hcash? I am trying to figure out where the supply and demand will come from.In the coming months we plan to do an update on the white paper. The technical analysis will be provided in our yellow paper. These will be detailed in the updated roadmap to be released after the main chain launch.
Will you be hiring an advertising team?Our target audience is everyone, from people playing mobile games to supporting business and government logic. The supply and demand will come with the need to transfer more and more data across multiple platforms. As for the economic model, this has not been outlined yet. We will be exploring all methods that fall in line with creating smart economies, including 2 token models.
What are ring signatures in cryptography? How do they work?We are already expanding Western marketing, primarily in the US. More focus on this will come soon after the main chain.
Most of us understand the interoperability of the network. What is a specific use case for Hcash? What role will Hcash have in the network? What makes it a requirement for interoperability? If someone has Bitcoin and wants to convert it to Ethereum using Hcash’s network wallet, is Hcash used as a fee for that conversion?At this time, we are exploring more efficient transaction schemes, such as bulletproofs. Bulletproofs can reduce the computational power needed for privatized/ anonymous transactions.
Here is an analogy. You walk into an arcade with 20 different machines. Each of these machines takes a different token, but you only have coins that operate with one of these machines. This would be the type of solution we hope to provide. Fees can be paid with Hcash. In the future we can explore taking fees in other denominations as well. More of this would be explained in detail with our yellow paper and economic model.
Are you willing to divulge how many apps you have in development for the Hcash main chain?Main chain release is mid-February, but we are aiming for launch on February 15th.
What is the Martian’s current relationship to Hcash? Is he still part of its team?The primary focus right now is to improve the stability of the Hcash main chain. This will ensure successful launches in the future for developers on our side DAG EVM.
Will the main chain go up according to schedule? Are there any problems with Hcash? The specialist sales team was made up of shareholders/ investors, right?The Hcash team is currently located on Earth. The last I heard the Martian was returning to Mars.
Is the code on GitHub all original? Are all developments executed on GitHub? Why is there so little original code? There are so few modifications. I also noticed there are remarkably few references to the code. Most of them are from documents that have been updated.Provided no unforeseen circumstances, we are on schedule for the main chain release. There are roadblocks and disconnects with every project. This is a new world of technology we are exploring. I think the team you may be referring to is the Hcash Foundation themselves. A lot of the Western marketing and development is being handled by the Nucleus Team.
What is scope of the Hcash R&D team?Many engineers have worked to contribute to the blockchain community over the years. We are taking advantage of the hard work and research that has been done while also making our own meaningful contributions for others to use in their code. It is important to acknowledge the contributions of others. The work completed by Decred in particular has allowed us to grow. Now we will have our chance to contribute back to them and others with our post quantum signature scheme and NG implementation. There are advantages of having similar projects that people don’t realize. For example, after our main chain launch we can explore assisting with development on the Lightning Network. As for GitHub, you will see activity increase when the main chain launches.
Hcash is currently collaborating with three universities. Shanghai Jiao Tong University has been working on the main chain quantum resistance. What are the main responsibilities of the other two universities?To assess, research and develop cutting edge decentralized consensus mechanisms and applications.
The Westerners working on Hcash don't seem very enthusiastic. They aren't following a lot of people on Twitter. Does the team have any clearer plans for increasing publicity?Building blockchain technology is a group effort. The other teams have also been researching other options for main chains, smart contracts etc. For example, Dr. Joseph Liu from Monash University is working on ring signature schemes to continue our research and development into privatized transactions. We are looking forward to taking the best efforts of all teams and bringing them to the blockchain communities at large, starting with the post quantum implementation from LoCCS at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Are there plans to get onto more exchanges such as Bittrex?The Westerners are primarily focused on the technology, development, and creating more content. The community management will be increasing transparency and activity in time. More Western marketing can be done after the launch of the main chain.
When will quantum resistant technology be implemented into Hcash? Where can we follow the developments being made and is there anywhere we can go to participate in the project?When moon? We are constantly considering all options to allow users to access Hcash. Currently we are listed amongst some of the top exchanges like Binance and growing exchanges like KuCoin.
Where do you download the wallet? How do you mine?Quantum resistant technology is available now on GitHub at https://github.com/HcashOrg/hcashd and will be available for use outside of the testing environment when the main chain launches in the middle of February.
When will Hshares swap Hcash? Can you announce a general time?The wallet for the new main chain can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/HcashOrg/hcashwallet. You can mine on the new main chain by joining a pool or using the hcashd node to solo-mine.
Will there be an address mapping when Hshares swaps to Hcash like there was with EOS? What other kind of mechanism will be used for the coin swap?Hshares can be redeemed for Hcash after the main chain launches in the middle of February. Announcements will be made regarding how and where to swap your Hshares for Hcash.
When will the main chain that can support smart contracts go online? When will tokenization for Hcash take place?A snapshot of Hshares will be included in the Genesis (first) block of Hcash’s launch to allow users to convert their Hshares into Hcash. An announcement will be made as to how, when and where conversions will take place.
There aren't many updates on GitHub and there aren’t many contributors. What kind of coordination is going on with the development team?Smart contract functionality will be available when our side DAG launches. Users, businesses and developers will be able to build dApps, launch tokens and more. We are making sure the main chain is a stable foundation before adding our DAG to the Hcash ecosystem.
Based on what I've been reading, Shanghai Jiao Tong University is mainly responsible for the main chain portion of the project. How is their team doing? How many research students in their labs are helping them?Both the Nucleus Team and members of Shanghai Jiao Tong University LoCCS are working together to finalize testing. Updates are being made to our GitHub at https://github.com/HcashOrg/hcashd.
Can you confirm that the main chain will finally go up in mid-February? Is it just a hypothetical date and then a further delay?Shanghai Jiao Tong is responsible for building and launching the new main chain. Their team there has been doing a great job with research and development and we look forward to seeing more of their work. The Nucleus Team is currently working with them to finish testing. After testing, the Nucleus team will focus on the future development of the project including our side DAG. I do not know the size of their team as we have not visited their lab.
What is the status of these interoperability features? When is the main chain going online?The primary responsibility is to make sure the main chain is stable and secure so that it can be used as the foundation to add other important features to the Hcash ecosystem, like smart contracts and hidden transactions. Everyone is working very hard to hit the target release date of mid-February. We are planning on mid-February for the launch unless anything unexpected comes up.
Won’t zero knowledge proofs conflict with the system’s throughput?Main chain will be released mid-February. The interoperability features depend on the stability of the network. Our side DAG EVM will be the quickest addition to the Hcash ecosystem that will allow for ETH interoperability. Lightning Network on the main chain will require further research and development.
We are currently working on more uncommon implementations of zero proof knowledge, such as bulletproofs that allow for efficient transaction speeds. We can also achieve higher throughput with our side DAG.

Hello Fellow Redditors. I'm a Bitcoin Maximalist, I spent a few years living in China, and I think we are underestimating the people behind Bcash. The following has been composed of personal knowledge and interesting conversations with crypto friends. Oh and feel free to correct my English
Most Bitcoin maximalists today look at the people behind Bcash - Roger, Jihan, Fake Satoshi, Haipo Yang, Amori Sachet, etc, and call them crazy (Roger), Jihan is a joke because he doesn't speak English as well as you do and makes hilarious tweets, and Fake satoshi, well okay, he is a joke. Bitcoin ABC github has 11 contributors, they fucked up the difficulty adjustment after the fork, and now even Bcash memepools are filling up, on-chain scaling right? it all seems like a joke, not to be taken seriously, "trump-esque" if you'd like.
Let's add to the mix that Bcash is completely centralized, an altcoin which is fully controlled by the miners. They can do whatever they want, hard forks, developments, experiments, and version updates.
Currently, Bcash's "technological advantages' are

They have been working on Bitcoin on-chain scaling, smart contracts, and open source protocols for ~two years! (Smart contracts! on Bitcoin!) do you think they don't have anything to show for it? They do, and whatever they've developed will have no issues or resistance when it comes to implementation because like we mentioned earlier there are no governance and or consensus issues with Bcash
- Enabling on-chain scaling without degrading the benefits of decentralization
- Advanced native scripting for the construction of smart contracts;
- Open source protocols.
And here is where it gets interesting
This is the time to wear your tinfoil hats
Living in China made me understand what a totalitarian regime is, and while I think that in the grand scheme of things the government is doing great things for the people of China (Healthcare, poverty, education.. etc), nothing goes under their radar. In specific a multi-billion dollar company called Bitmain, multi-million dollar mining farms and pools, and the realization that Bitcoin is going to change the world and financial world in specific. Alibaba, Tencent, and Baidu will not be what they are unless they were allowed and sanctioned by the Chinese government. We can safely assume that Jihan has been in contact with government officials. A few Baijiu (Chinese Alcohol) dinners, maybe they invited a Laowai (roger) who will probably be liked in China if he could shut up. Now, what is China doing? They're outlawing Mining?? A stab in the back of Jihan and Haipo, they are going to have to move their mining farms outside of China, them and everyone else. The immediate result of this happening is a drop of GPU hash rate for Bitcoin and BCash. As mentioned above, Bcash is better suited to handle spikes and dips in Hashrate. Bitcoin takes more than two weeks to recover while Bcash is functional, Nchain and fake satoshi implement whatever they've been working on, Turing complete contracts/Schnorr Signatures/sharding, who knows? but if Nchain has developed whatever is necessary to be technologically superior, well we might be in a pickle.
Anyway fellow Redditors, this is all speculation, glad to be corrected and hear more thoughts and opinions about this. May we all Lambo and not fiat.

"These reports suggests that the adoption by Baidu is a signal that the big vendors are accepting bitccoin - consider the close tie between baidu and central government, that the government may be interested too. It is like saying Microsoft or Facebook started to accept bitcoin. That tapped on the emotion and BTC rose.. .
I think the big vendors are no way closer to accepting bitcoin in the last week than any weeks before. It is indeed a small change, and signals nothing from big vendors nor the central government at all.
Chinese information technology vendors, including the big ones, in general prefer the studio model. A big company is devided into multiple studios, some companys have 100 studios. They each compete against each other. They compete on revenue and profit, within the embralla of a same company. Each studio find their own ways of making profit, and enjoy freedom of decision as long as they are making money. The mother company acts like a referee, dismissing unprofitable studios and buying out (admitting) small competitors to form new studios; the mother company also act as a protector, backing the studios with tremendous PR and governmental relationship power in case their competitor choose to fight on a different level (which also happens). This fast-proliferating fast-evoluting style isn't very co-ordinated, but it is effective because in general in China our culture emphasize competition, and we like to compete and win and we work the best if competition is physically next door. If instead big vendors are organized like Microsoft to co-operate and create huge products (Windows 7) in 5-year span, the youngsters wouldn't stay on their edge - they need quick confirmation whether they are wining or not - they work very hard but doesn't have much patience. Skipping between studios is frequent, the fast-growing studios get more resource and people.
The recent acceptance of bitcoin is likely a decision of a single stuidio in the embralla of baidu, perhaps trying to beat other studios of the same company. Baidu HQs speaksman said nothing about bitcoin in the whole year. How Baidu HQs treats the move is unkown, and they probably don't have an attitude, for it (bitcoin) is trivial compare to the huge online information market they are already on. News interview suggests this is a decision of an individual studio: "We always try to satisfy the webmasters, so when they want to pay with bitcoin, we accept them". Notice the interviewee said 'webmasters', that's the customers of this studio, not Baidu in whole, and he speaks for his own studio.
Also take notice the customer of this studio (jiasule.baidu.com), the webmasters, happen to be the major group of bitcoin miners in China.
So why such a small piece of news that indicates nothing for sure, stirs up such a rally? More important than the news itself it says Chinese investors are desperately looking for a reason to rally. They perhaps expected bitcoin to be above 1000¥ for a long time, now they only need a slight upward vibrate to rally. And they have a good reason to hope for a rally, for they bought huge amount of mining equipments in anticipation of raise of bitcoin value.
My reading of the event is, that Chinese investors are anticipating a rally for a long time, thus it won't cool down in just a few days. However they are speculating, not having much faith in sustanibility of bitcoin and may be frighten away by small bad news within China. They are less sensitive to western news like silkroad.
In China we have highly centralized political power. The chance Chinese government allows bitcoin on the markets (when it calls their attention) is like the chance U.S. government raise debt in BTC. The big vendors foresee it and shouldn't be interested. Besides we have a monoplay business atomosphere in China (every player are greedy, wants to win and take all), and you don't monoplay bitcoin. I see no reason Baidu being interested to include bitcoin into their development strategy. Small vendors are much more likely to be interested in btc.
(OP is a Chinese citizen in Beijing)" .
If Chinese government pays attention to bitcoin, it would act the same way they do towards shadow banking: fine those involved in bitcoin yet backed by government, and prosecute the entities without gvernment backing (even execute a few, like the unlucky millionaire Wu Ying last year and Zeng Chengjie this year). The charge will be as usual: illegal fund-raising.
Right now there are two points that needs to be considered on understaind Chinese behaviour:
My two cents.
- Chinese traders speculate. Few believed in a non-governmental currency taking root, as few believed anything significant yet non-governmental can take root. This translate to a huge bear market when Chinese government acts.
- The atomsphere in China is like the roaring twenties which I read from books. Everyone feels like they are ready to make a big fortune. This can translates to potential huge bulls.
So it is not the question whether bitcoin can be regulated, but whether bitcoin can obey. Bitcoin trading can be regulated but bitcoin itself bends to no one - which begets the question whether or not it will be allowed to live.. .
On the other hand, if Bitcoin becomes so significant that the government has to make a decision, and they decided to let it live, the acceptance of bitcoin will have no consumer psychological barrier, because, as you said, we are pretty familiar with virtual currencies.
