The announced upgrade that is going to happen is called "Grasberg DAA". Here is what it is trying to fix: - It tries to fix current difficulty adjustment algorithm, replacing it with "Grasberg DAA" - an algorithm based on Johnatan Toomin's ASERT. The performance is supposedly similar to ASERT. "Supposedly", because no data, proofs or real-life simulations have been shown by ABC to confirm it does what it does. Being supposedly as good as JToomin's ASERT, it introduces about 500-1000% of the complexity of ASERT to the code. Here is what it also does: - Immediately decreases profits of miners by 12.5% (675 seconds / 600 seconds = 1.125), comparing to current EDA/network state - Prolongs miners' payout time by 2 hours ((675 - 600 = 75) seconds x 100 blocks), comparing to current EDA/network state - Breaks all existing time-based smart contracts - Makes all transactions slower by 12.5%, comparing to current EDA/network state - Makes the whole network slower by 12.5%, comparing to current EDA/network state - Makes the whole network less secure by 12.5%, comparing to current EDA/network state - Above changes will **hold for 5 years**. Why? - Because Satoshi had slighly inefficient difficulty adjustment algorithm (blocks were not coming out on average every 600 seconds, but less) ABC leadership previous algorithm was also broken. So apparently the best way to fix it according to ABC's leadership is to punish the miners, the users and the network for all past mistakes to "reverse history" or something.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/f25hjy/an_idea_for_giving_user_total_control_of_what/

This post is intended to throw an idea around and get some feedback. So I have an idea of a browser that will give the user absolute total control over what content is finally displayed to him and what is happening on the site he is browsing. The concept is simple. Such browser would have 2 "control layers" of objects (objects being images, movies, CSS) that control the visibility and behavior of objects. Layer2 - with low priority. This is the "website layer". Accessible to the website's scripts and everything else. Layer1 - with highest priority. This is the "user and extensions layer": Accessible only to plugins and to the user of the browser, but not the website's scripts. Whatever decision is made at layer 1, overwrites any decisions made at layer 2, and layer 2 is unaware of whatever is happening at layer 1. So, getting to the point, it would be possible for **Layer 1 to "lie" to the website and all scripts loaded** by that website that certain element is being displayed, while in reality it is not being displayed. **Layer 2 would have no read or write access to whatever is happening at layer 1**, so it would be impossible for the website to detect if something unwanted (like hiding ads) is happening. Only content & actions that are the result of additional processing at Layer 1 are displayed to the user, while for Layer 2, whatever is being produced by it is the final content. Layer 2 is unaware what is really being displayed to the user. Layer 1 mechanisms (like uBlock and other extensions) are thus able to filter content of the website, making it impossible for the website to detect or block or interfere with the result. I think such a scheme would give users the ultimate freedom and at least partially return the Internet to the state it should always have been in - where user is always in control what happens, displays and gets downloaded to his browser. ----------------------- The major **downside** of this idea are is that browsers like Firefox and Chromium would need to be deeply modified, so this cannot be done by extension only. I think that the web is becoming more and more hostile place to the user with Adblocker detection scripts and tracking of all user actions - a place where user is no longer in control of what is happening in his own home, on his own computer. This simple concept is intended to turn this worrying trend around.

https://www.reddit.com/r/uBlockOrigin/comments/f255rp/an_idea_for_ublockable_ublock/

Lately uBlock-blocking is getting more popular in Poland now (Poland is apparently the world's leader in blocking - 46% of Poles block ads). So in reaction, more and more sites in Poland are becoming unbrowsable because of anti-adblock scripts. And filter authors are not keeping up with updating their filters to fix these cases. I know it from my own experience. So far using uBlock Origin + uMatrix helps a lot, but for how long? So I have an idea of a browser that will make it possible to create an **absolutely** unblockable adblock. The concept is simple. Such browser would have 2 "control layers" of objects (objects being images, movies, CSS) that control the visibility and behavior of objects. Layer2 - with low priority. This is the "website layer". Accessible to the website's scripts and everything else. Layer1 - with highest priority. This is the "user and extensions layer": Accessible only to plugins and to the user of the browser, but not the website's scripts. Whatever decision is made at layer 1, overwrites any decisions made at layer 2, and layer 2 is unaware of whatever is happening at layer 1. So, getting to the point, it would be possible for **Layer 1 to "lie" to the website and all scripts loaded** by that website that certain element is being displayed, while in reality it is not being displayed. **Layer 2 would have no read or write access to whatever is happening at layer 1**, so it would be impossible for the website to detect if something unwanted (like hiding ads) is happening.

I think such a scheme would give users the ultimate freedom and at least partially return the Internet to the state it should always have been in - where user is always in control what happens, displays and gets downloaded to his browser. ----------------------- The major **downside** of this idea are is that browsers like Firefox and Chromium will need to be deeply modified, so this cannot be done by extension only. I think eventually people that want to remain free will have to do it, adblocker-blocking will become more and more prevalent, it is only a matter of time before the Web becomes unbrowsable with uBlock/AdBlock.

Here is Part 3 of my investigation on CodeValley and Emergent Coding: Analysis of potential attack scenarios, their potential seriousness and how to mitigate them if they actually happen. [Part2](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/) was an analysis of how CodeValley company could possibly work. [Part1](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/) + [Addendum](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/deg5tg/emergent_coding_investigationquestioning_part1/) was an analysis of how Emergent Coding works ---------------------------- **POSSIBLE ATTACK SCENARIOS:** ---------------------------- **SCENARIO 1)** A normal dishonest company or a money Laundering company [[MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-2 or [MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-5] selling bad product: The company will try to earn money by selling their failure product by convincing developers to use their product first, which developers will later convince their managers & CEOs to buy mass licenses for the tech. Because this kind of attack is not targeted at Bitcoin Cash and its Open Source ecosystem, it may appeal to multiple companies of various business models compatibile with closed source software. If CodeValley is just a money laundering company [MODEL-5], then they will not exert large pressure to sell a lot of products. If this kind of company pulls some BCH/Cryptocurrency startups into its patented technology, there could be limited damage to the whole Bitcoin Cash ecosystem. This is not their goal though, which is the main reason for the insignificant danger. - Possible timespan of attack: **Unlimited**. - Worst-case-scenario danger and damage to Bitcoin Cash if successful: **Very Low to Low** - Probability of (limited) success: **Medium to High** ---------------------------- **SCENARIO 2)** A placeholder company or pure-evil-type company [[MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-3, [MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-4 or [MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-7] trying to acquire control and establish position in Bitcoin Cash market: Once the company gains enough foothold in the Peer-To-Peer Cash industry, its owner will try to influence the industry to achieve its goals, whatever the goals may be. Because the CodeValley's ultra-closed SaaS software is not compatibile at all with the open source nature of CryptoCurrencies, they will have it very hard to gain foothold in this industry or convince anybody from BCH ecosystem to go completely closed source. Also, because I have already vaccinated the ecosystem against this attack method before it even happened, it makes it even more difficult to mount against us. However, if successful - as unlikely as that sounds - consequences of the attack could turn out pretty severe, similarly to nChain/Calvin/Craig Wright's attack on Bitcoin Cash. - Timespan of attack: **2 to 3 years**. - Worst-case-scenario damage to Bitcoin Cash ecosystem if hostile & successful: **Low to Medium** - Probability of success: **Low** ---------------------------- **SCENARIO 3)** A patent troll company [[MODEL](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/)-6] trying to pull startups & corporations into using their patented technology, in order to sue them later and earn money from court battles. This kind of attack may or not be targeted at Bitcoin Cash specifically, but it may cause low amount of damage to Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, as some startups will waste a lot of money on lawyers and could end up frozen because of legal shenanigans. It will, however, not cause almost significant damage to existing ecosystem participants - meaning open source projects and companies. With high probability, only new startups will be affected. - Timespan of attack: **3 to 20 years**. - Worst-case-scenario damage to Bitcoin Cash ecosystem if hostile & successful: **Low** - Probability of success: **Low to Medium** ---------------------------- **DEFENDING BITCOIN CASH ECOSYSTEM AGAINST ALL THE ATTACKS:** -- 1) If you have a Bitcoin Cash - related startup or are a developer considering taking part in the "BCH Tech Park", be extremely wary and careful of various clauses/provisions in the tenancy agreement. Especially dangerous conditions are the ones that - Allow CodeValley to break the contract in case you didn't do what they want or didn't buy some of their products - Allow CodeValley to break the contract in case you didn't use their patented technology - Give you the usage of CodeValley's patented technologies "for free", if you agree to the their tenancy contract - Forcefully budle the usage of CodeValley's patented technologies in one bag together with the tenancy contract (tenancy + technology together) - Allow CodeValley to break tenancy contract immediately, without giving any reason whatsoever If you do not know how to read "lawyer-english" and are not good at reading complex contracts, **GET A LAWYER** to read it for you. Obviously Do NOT sign (any) contract without reading it slowly & thoroughly at least one time, but 2-3 times is much safer. Best to take it home and read it when you are relaxed, not at CodeValley's office. -- 2) Also be wary of multiple popular socio-technical tricks they use (they tried to use them on me, so I know). They may signify dishonesty and will to use more manipulation techniques in person: - Symphatizing with your problems, while not knowing them - Praising you with no logical reason, without knowing your achievements - Inviting you to their workshops and conferences - while paying expenses - with seemingly no valid reason at all ---------------------------- **ENDING NOTES:** ---------------------------- I have succeeded in my basic function as an immune mechanism: The CodeValley/Emergent Coding investigation took long enough for most developers to notice it, it has drawn a lot of attention, so awareness of the threat has been raised by many levels and antibodies have been produced before the infection has spread. In my opinion, the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem now has all it needs to defend from the possible attack and similar attacks in the future. I also generally do not view CodeValley company as as serious danger to the Bitcoin Cash ecosystem, because their business model(ultra closed source SaaS) is inherently totally incompatibile with CryptoCurrencies' software model (open source). They will have it very hard to convince anyone here to use their patented technology. Even if they do convince some companies, because of their products are also not compatibile with existing software and operating systems, the possible damage to BCH ecosystem in case of successful attack should be relatively small. Still, we should always be vigilant and it is better to avoid any damage to Peer-To-Peer Cash, even if insignificant in size.

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/df88ap/emergent_codingcodevalley_investigation_part2_how/

Here is Part 2 of my investigation on CodeValley and Emergent Coding. Part1 was analysis of how Emergent Coding works Part2 is an analysis of how CodeValley company could possibly work. Part3 will be an analysis of potential attack scenarios, their potential seriousness and how to mitigate them if they actually happen. ------------------- TL;DR - There is a long list of slightly suspicious, moderately suspicious and highly suspicious / almost condemning actions taken by CodeValley - Based on these actions, I propose 7 models that could logically explain how CodeValley came to be / how it works from the inside. - I estimate the probability of CodeValley being a dishonest company with ulterior motives to be 97% (I could still be wrong). Depending on what kind of dishonest company it is, these motives can be focused targeted on Bitcoin Cash or not. ------------------- I hereby present all the evidence concerning CodeValley company collected by me during the course of my investigation. ------------------- EVIDENCE: **Almost neutral behaviors** (Almost acceptable, not condemning, not suspicious or only slightly suspicious, like a relatively "normal" company would do): ------------------- A1) CodeValley is not interested in getting any funding, apparently. The CEO himself has stated that they are [interested only in developers](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2j9v9l/) [[Archive](http://archive.is/uTzp6)]. This is not actually bad itself, it may be a strategy to get developers interested in the project first so they popularize it and get the funds later after the tech is popular already A2) They are trying to get as many [[paying](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d6c6ks/early_warning_spotting_bullshit_is_my_specialty_i/f0sev3z/?context=3)] people as possible involved, without actually telling these people what they will be involved in. This is moderately dishonest. A3) CodeValley is "Anchor Tenant" at Australia's Bitcoin Tech park. Whatever that means - because there is no documentation or information of how this is supposed to work. Will CodeValley have decision power of whether other companies can or cannot occupy the tech park and on what kind of conditions & terms? If they do have some kind of decision power or veto power, they could easily use this to influence or even force other companies into their highly secretive and proprietary technology. A4) The company is extremely secretive about anything that would explain how the product is supposed to work. It takes solid PR-beating with a club until bleeding starts for the company to share any details whatsoever about the product they have. A5) Instead of just explaining how the product work and allow developers to become amazed with the beauty of the mechanism that makes it go, they chose to keep everything opaque and hide as much as they can about the product. It's like they are convinced that if they reveal too much, everyone will run away. It does not necessarily yet signify a bad actor, it **could** be just a bad business decision ------------------- EVIDENCE: **Somewhat suspicious behaviors** ------------------- B1) Despite being 11 years in the field, - CodeValley's product is not available as an actual software at all - They cannot disclose list of their patents, even though their Intellectual Property is being obviously well-protected - Almost nobody known in the world uses any of their product, they have no big "success stories" B2) The company does not even want to reveal it's business plan. Maybe it doesn't have any? But how did it get $50M in funding without a business plan? So the logical conclusions are, they - Either do have a business plan and are ashamed to show it for some reason OR - They don't have any business plan, in which case other factors are at play - most probably insidious or dodgy factors B3) Noticed all the posts of CodeValley CEO have an automatic +3 upvotes in most topics their CEO answers. This is a little suspicious, but to be fair - in today's social media-soaked times it may be normal for any company to engage in honest and a little less honest PR damage control. B4) The whitepaper and the [presentation](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hl_rKMATAm8) of their product is **deliberately** extremely vague and contains no concrete information. Deliberately, because it takes serious mental gymnastics to write so much text without actually giving any concrete information about a product which has actually a *pretty simple premise of binary software fragment market*. And such mental gymnastics can only be done on purpose. This reeks of dishonesty. B5) Since I started the investigation, CodeValley CEO and a shill which appeared later tried to use multiple different psychological attacks on me. Specifically: - "Symphatizing" with my (supposed) hardships that had led me to this investigation, my hard childhood or whatever, and showing understanding (attacks details: make yourself closer to the person by symphatizing, thus provoking softer, less agressive responses, pretending to care and positioning yourself as a friend) - Praising me despite knowing actually nothing about me (attack details: make the attacked feel good about himself, pretend to be a friend, which changes that state of mind of attacked to more relaxed and makes him become susceptible to more manipulation tactics) - Inviting me to a "workshop" in Austalia, paying for hotels, plane and expenses, despite not knowing me (attacks: 1. Bribe using free services, 2. use more psycho-manipulation tricks in person, the way they are more effective) B6) Failure to answer what is the source of funds for my supposed travel to australia, how will it be booked in their spending financial sheets, how it will be "raised". Just dropping the topic, like it never existed. B7) CodeValley's funding sources are extremely shady. The [big fund that brings unknown percentage of money to the table](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d8j2u5/public_codevalleyemergent_consensus_questioning/f1atxi3/?context=3) [[Archive](http://archive.is/6O5uG)] is completely opaque and CodeValley does not want to share any information whatsoever about it ------------------- EVIDENCE: **Highly suspicious or nearly condemning behaviors** ------------------- C1) Despite being 11 yrears in the field, CodeValley does not give internal(binary & download) access to anybody, [even their current business partners](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2u2oay/?context=3) [[Archive](http://archive.is/sxwn1)] C2) After weeks of the investigation, once people steering CodeValley saw that I cannot be easily swayed, bought or discarded as an obvious troll, their shills [start begging me to "not connect the dots" in part3 and consult them first before writing anything](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/deg5tg/emergent_coding_investigationquestioning_part1/f2ygi0z/) [[Archive](http://archive.is/XKbgP)]. And all this while still claiming not being an obvious shill. Also another manipulation tactics by praise. This is pure gold (or rather: pure malice). C3) Emergent Coding shills are bothering me in a similar way to CSW Shills - meaningly they spam PMs/comments in my direction specifically after telling them to leave me alone and after I add them to RES ignore list. Normal reddit users and even Core Shills never do that, so I conclude that they must have similar mindset to CSW/Calvin/nChain Shills, which will, most probably, mean being dishonest with their intentions. C4) The company does not even talk about WHY it doesn't want to reveal its business plan. It would be almost okay if they said "we cannot reveal the plan due to contract with company XYZ or the Government". But they don't. This is extremely suspiciuous and signifies something nefarious. C5) The company does not even talk about WHY it doesn't want to reveal its patents. One explanation like "listen, we cannot do it, we have NDAs or contracts with other entities" would be something. But no. Instead, once questions about patents start, they go completely silent - except only [their shills immediately show up](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/deg5tg/emergent_coding_investigationquestioning_part1/f2yv30d/?context=3) [[Archive](http://archive.is/PZ1vX)] and start explaining "possible reasons why". Also highly nefarious behavior typical for people ulterior agendas. ------------------- I will also now present **theories of possible models that could explain occurence of company similar to CodeValley in nature:** ------------------- MODEL 1. A normal honest company: Having incompetent owners, victims to the [[sunk cost fallacy](https://www.behavioraleconomics.com/resources/mini-encyclopedia-of-be/sunk-cost-fallacy/)], developing product that will never work and pointlessly hoping for their dreams to come true while also trying to pull as many people in for some psychologically peculiar reason (something akin to group suicide). MODEL 2. A normal dishonest company: A normal company with dishonest and manipulative owners that understand perfectly that the product they are selling is pointless and will never work as advertised. But they try to pull as many developers as they can into their system, make them sign contracts and NDAs, so money can be milked from them in a hopefully steady manner. There is a danger this type of company can morph into Placeholder company(3), pure evil-type company(6) or patent troll company(5). MODEL 3. A "Placeholder" company: A shell company positioned in some specific place by a very wealthy and influential person or organization. It is a sleeper company, that remains dormant for a long time until it accomplishes enough and gains enough foothold in the specific industry that the actual owner can use it to influence the industry and earn huge money or achieve certain goals in politics. Example: nChain. MODEL 4. A "Phantom Placeholder" company: The same as placeholder company, except it (owner, ceo and employees) does not actually know that it is a placeholder company. The biggest investor (the actual owner) has "other plans" for the company, which he will reveal in appropriate time and make the company do whatever he wants. MODEL 5. Dirty money company: Company created for laundering dirty money (from prostitution, drugs, illegal gambling, human trafficking or illegal arms). Mostly harmless, will just produce junk and pretend it is doing something until the money run out. Or if they won't run out, it will produce junk indefinitely. MODEL 6. A patent troll: A company that deliberately created or used very complex technology in order to pull as many companies as they can into their system in order to sue them and then milk them continuously through trials and lawyers. MODEL 7. A "pure-evil" company. Company that is deliberately working in order to destroy or cripple a technology or an industry for political gain while pretending to be saints and pretending to make progress in the field/industry. Examples: Blockstream, GAZPROM(russian company). ------------------- I estimate the probability of CodeValley being one of **models 2-7 at 97%** and being a **model 1 at 3%**.

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/deg5tg/emergent_coding_investigationquestioning_part1/

This is an update of the investigation. A new information has been made available to me, which changed some things (but not a lot of things, really): I hereby apologize for making following mistakes in [Part 1 of the investigation](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/) topic : 1. The CodeValley company **did not lie** when they said that binary interface is available through Pilot or Autopilot. 2. - ✖ At the moment, CodeValley is the only company that has the special compiler ~~and the only supplier of the binary pieces lying on the lowest part of the pyramid.~~ Explanation: Anybody can actually insert binary pieces into the agent, but CodeValley is still the only company that has the special compiler. It is only available to public and business partners as SaaS, which is still insufficient and laughable after 11 years of preparations. 3. - ~~✖ <As it is now>, it is NOT possible for any other company other than CodeValley to create the most critical pieces of the infrastructure (B1, B2, B3, B4). The tools that do it are NOT available.~~ Explanation: Binary pieces can be inserted by anybody. As [proven](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2o6ilz/) by /u/pchandle_au, there is a binary interface documented in CodeValley docs. I missed it, but to my defense: I would have to learn their entire scripting language to find it, which I did not intend to do. All other previously stated points, information and facts remain unchanged. But because of the new information, new issues came up for the Emergent Coding system. I think it actually made it worse... - 1) The existence of pyramid structure has been [confirmed](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2khxdm/?context=3) [[Archive](http://archive.is/VZLun)] multiple [times](https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2k9ke7/) [[Archive](http://archive.is/8mT02)] by programmers affiliated with CodeValley. - 2) Because of binary code can be inserted by their "Pilot" app, the pyramid request structure no longer looks like this: ~~Agents->Agents->Agents->Humans~~ Instead, it now looks like this: Agents(+Humans)->Agents(+Humans)->Agents(+Humans)->Agents(+Humans) Basically, binary code can be freely inserted at any level of the pyramid. - 3) As [stated](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/f2u2oay/?context=3) [[Archive](http://archive.is/sxwn1)]by one of their affiliated programmers/business partners, **only ASM/Machine code can be inserted** into the Emergent Coding system at the moment. Any other code, like C/C++ code cannot be inserted as the agents are not compatible. So this is thing is going to be very, very difficult for developers when they try to build complex, or a very non-standard thing, using some exotic or uncommon code. New agents would have to be built that can link libraries, but these agents have to be built using **ASM X86 Binary** code as well, before that can happen. - 4) <At the moment> it is impossible or at least impractical to use existing Linux/Windows libraries like .SOs or DLLs with Emergent Coding. Emergent coding is inherently incompatible with all existing software architecture, whether open or closed source. Everything will need to be done almost from scratch in it. (Unless of course they make it possible later or somebody does it for them, but that's a possible future, not now. And they already had 11 years). - 5) <At the moment> every executable produced in Emergent Coding is basically a mash of Agent binary Code and inserted ASM X86 Binary code and pieces of such binary code cannot be simply isolated or disconnected, **debugging more exotic bugs** which may come out during the advancement of this scheme of programming will be **absolute hell**. - 6) Because of above, similarly **optimizing performance**, finding and **removing bottlenecks** in such mashed binary code will be even greater hell. ---------------------- Also I also have one new question for CodeValley or affiliated programmers (which I don't suppose they answer, because so far the only way to get any answers from them is hitting them with a club until they bleed): - **How is multi-threading/multi-process even achieved in Emergent Coding ? How can I separate one part of the binary fetched from other agents and make it run in a completely separate process? Is it even doable?**

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/ddadyn/conclusions_from_emergent_consensus_codevalley/

How Emergent Coding works TL;DR **Pros:** * ✔ Emergent Coding actually works (surprise for me there) * ✔ It is theoretically possible to earn money and create a thriving software market using Emergent Coding **Cons:** * ✖ Not a new software paradigm, just closed source software market * ✖ "Agents all the way down" is a lie. It is not only built from agents * ✖ You need to learn new programming language(sic!) to use it * ✖ It is completely centralized, at the moment * ✖ System is not possible with open source paradigm and open source ways of doing things * ✖ There are multiple patented parts while it is unclear which exactly, which is a HUGE legal risk for anybody wanting to use it * ✖ There is no way to find or prevent bad/evil agents trying to inject malicious code into the system (as it is now) * ✖ Agents may have it hard to earn any significant money using it * ✖ CodeValley can inject any code into every application using the system at any time (as it is now) * ✖ Only CodeValley can control the most critical parts, at the moment * ✖ Only CodeValley can freely create really anything in the system, while other are limited by available parts, at the moment * ✖ Extremely uncomfortable for developers, at the moment ---------------------------- LONGER VERSION: ---------------------------- As you probably remember from previous investigation thread, I have received insider look into the inner workings of the "Emergent Coding" software system. So I have combined together all available evidence and gave it a lot of though, which produced an analysis. The basic working principle of the system can be described with following schematic: [See the Schema Image First](https://i.imgur.com/SG9DwLP.png) In short, it can be described as an "[Supposedly Decentralized] Automated Closed Source Binary Software Market" The system itself is a combination of free market "code bazaar", where a user can buy complete software software program from available parts. There are multiple available participants (Agents) and each agent has his piece, which is built from smaller pieces, which are built from even smaller pieces and so on. The entire software platform has its own, new programming language used to call the agents and the software parts though. So let's say Bob wants to build a software application using "Emergent Coding". What Bob has to do: 1. Learn a new software language: "Emergent Coding script" 2. Download and run the "software binary bazaar" compiler (it is called "Pilot" by CodeValley) 3. Write the code, which will pull necessary parts into the application and piece them together using other pieces and glue (Emergent Coding Script) 4. The software will then start working in a kind of "pyramid scheme", starting from the top (level 3), where "build program request" is split into 2 pieces and appropriate agents on the level 2 of the pyramid (Agent A1, Agent A2) are asked for the large parts. 5. The agents then assemble their puzzle pieces, by asking other agents on level 1 of the pyramid (Agents B1, B2, B3, B4) for the smaller pieces. 6. The code returns up the same manner the requests were sent, from level 1 the binary pieces are sent to level 2 and assembled and then from level 2 they are sent to level 3 and assembled. Conclusions and observations: Let's start with **advantages** of such system: * ✔ It actually works: I have verified it in hex editor and other user has disassembled and analyzed it, so I am positive it actually works and it is a compiler which merges multiple binary pieces into one big application * ✔ It is possible for every agent on every level of such pyramid to take a cut and charge small price for every little piece of software they produce. Which could **in theory** produce a thriving marketplace of ideas and solutions. Now, let's get to **disadvantages** and **potential problems** of the system: * ✖ The system is NOT actually a new software paradigm or a revolutionary new way to create software, similarly to Agile, as CodeValley would like you to believe. Better name would be: [Supposedly Decentralized] Automated Closed Source Binary Software Market. * ✖ Despite claims of CodeValley, the entire system does not actually consist only of agents and agent-produced code. Agents are not AI. They are dumb assemblers, downloaders/uploaders and messengers. The lowest level of the pyramid(L1: Agent B1, B2, B3, B4) cannot contain only agent-made code or binaries, because agents do not write or actually understand binary code. They are only doing what they are told and assembling what they are told, as specified by the Emergent Coding Script. Any other scenario creates a typical chicken-and-egg problem, thus being illogical and impossible. Therefore: * ✖ The lowest level of the pyramid (L1) contains code NOT created by Emergent Coding, but using some other compiler. Additional problem with this is that: * ✖ At the moment, CodeValley is the only company that has the special compiler and the only supplier of the binary pieces lying on the lowest part of the pyramid. * ✖ Whoever controls the lowest level of pyramid, can (at the moment) inject any code they want into the entire system, and every application created by the system will be automatically affected and run the injected code * ✖ Nobody can stop agents from higher levels of the pyramid (L2 or L3) from caching ready binaries. Once they start serving requests, it is very easy to do automated caching of code-per-request data, thus making it possible to save money and not make sub-requests to other agents - instead cache it locally and just charge the requester money. This could make it very hard for agents to make money, because once they cache the code single time, they can serve the same code indefinitely and earn, without paying for it. So the nodes on lower levels of pyramid are automatically at potential earnings depend on position in the pyramid - it pays higher to be high in the pyramid, it pays less to be low in the pyramid. * ✖ <As it is now>, the system is completely centralized, because all the critical pieces of binary at the lowest level of the pyramid (Pyramid Level1: B1, B2, B3, B4) are controlled by single company, also the Pilot app is NOT even available for download. * ✖ <As it is now>, it is NOT possible for any other company other than CodeValley to create the most critical pieces of the infrastructure (B1, B2, B3, B4). The tools that do it are NOT available. * ✖ <As it is now>, the system only runs in browser and browser is the only way to write Emergent Consensus app. No development environment has support for EC Code, which makes it very uncomfortable for developers. * ✖ The system is completely closed source and cannot really work in an open source way and cannot be used in open source environment, which makes it extremely incompatible with large part of today's software world * ✖ The system requires learning completely new coding tools and new language from every participant * ✖ So far, CodeValley has patented multiple parts of this system and is very reluctant to share any information what is patented and what is not patented, which created a huge legal risk for any company that would want to develop software using this system * ✖ Despite its closed-sourcedness, the system does not contain any kind of security mechanism that would ensure that code assembled into the final application is not malicious. CodeValley seems to automatically assume that free market forces will automagically remove all bad agents from the system, but history of free market environments shows this is not the case and it sometimes takes years or decades for the market forces to weed out ineffective or malicious participants on their own. This creates another huge risk for anybody who would want to participate in the system.

https://www.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d8j2u5/public_codevalleyemergent_consensus_questioning/

What is going on here? I am asking some hard questions for the CodeValley Company, which recently proposed a new revolutionary software development paradigm called **Emergent Coding** at the latest big Bitcoin Cash conference in Australia. I am asking these questions because, as I ([and ~150 people who agreed with me[(https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d6c6ks/early_warning_spotting_bullshit_is_my_specialty_i/)) noticed, there are stunning similarities between CodeValley and the companies who have tried and succeeded in crippling Peer-To-Peer Electronic Cash: nChain and Blockstream. According to me, **as it looks now**, similarities between these 3 companies (nChain, Blockstream, CodeValley) are the following: - Sources of funding are extremely unclear or openly hostile to Bitcoin - At first and even second glance, there is no product, no way to make money - Whitepaper & Documentation is missing, hollow or total abstract bullshit, company has no logical sense of existence - Detailed specifications or proofs of operation are not available - Main products are closed-source patented blobs (BSV, Liquid, Emergent Coding) - They have huge influences in the industry or try to establish themselves in such position to have the infuences I am here (and you are here, I assume) because we want to find out the truth, whatever the truth is. The point of this topic is to ask the hardest possible questions in order to estimate the probability of CodeValley company being legit. But this is also a chance for CodeValley to **clear their name** by providing sufficient information that proves that (after 4 years of having working company and [10+ years of having patents](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d6c6ks/early_warning_spotting_bullshit_is_my_specialty_i/f0sev3z/) [[Archived](http://archive.is/iNkVk)]) they actually have a working product and are a legit company, and not an infiltrator designed and paid by banks/TPTB in order to cripple and destroy Bitcoin Cash. Also if they truly are what they claim and they truly have such a revolutionary technology, this is a great opportunity for promotion. To show the world that the tech actually works. I will ask my questions and you can ask your questions as well. Don't make them easy. Don't have mercy (but these things work better when you are polite). **Let's begin the trial by fire!** -------------- Calling /u/nlovisa My Questions/Tasks for CodeValley: [Of course you actually don't have to answer any of them or you can give us bullshit answers again, but in such case the community may conclude that you actually are next nChain/Blockstream and an enemy infiltrator, reject you and shoot down all your efforts. So the choice is yours] @@@@ 1. Please upload your actual businessplan which you presented to the people in power who gave you funding(VCs? Government?) to create $50 Million BCH tech park. A businessplan which is supposed to explain spending of $50 million AUD should have at least 7 pages (but more probably 20+). Some names and unimportant details (but NOT money/financial numbers) can be redacted. -- You have 6 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 2. Please list your current VCs and >%5 shareholders, with CEO names and HQ locations of each of them. -- You have 4 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 3. Few days ago you promised to upload freely-accessible documentation to https://codevalley.com/docs subpage which would describe emergent coding in greater details. @ - What happened to that promise? @@@@ 4. After [I accused that your company is bullshit and your product is hollow](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d6c6ks/early_warning_spotting_bullshit_is_my_specialty_i/), you immediately [started to praise me and offered me a trip to Australia](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/d6c6ks/early_warning_spotting_bullshit_is_my_specialty_i/f0rx602/) [[Archived](http://archive.is/EjTLX)]. @ - So, do you always praise and offer a paid trip across the world to Australia to all people on the Internet who heavily criticize you? Is this a common practice in your company? @@@@ 5. A travel from Poland to Australia and back [would cost something under $2000 AUD](https://www.skyscanner.pl/transport/loty/pl/tsva/?adultsv2=1&childrenv2=&cabinclass=economy&rtn=1&preferdirects=false&outboundaltsenabled=false&inboundaltsenabled=false&oym=1910&iym=1910), counting buses, with hotels that would make something close to $2500 AUD even for few days. Based on this, I estimate your "*invite random people from the internet to Australia in order to show them the product*" budget has to consist of at least $50.000 AUD yearly (but $100.000 - $200.000 is more probable of course). @ A) In your financial books, what exactly is called the Excel position of your budget expenses under which would your secretary put my trip's expenses? @ B) How do you maintain such a large budget for such frivolous spending and how do you explain it to your shareholders/VCs? @@@@ 6. Few days ago you answered somebody a question: "The trust model is also different. The bulk of the testing happens _before_ the project is designed not _after_. Emergent Coding produces a binary with very high integrity and arguably far more testing is done in emergent coding than in incumbent methods you are used to.". @ A) Who EXACTLY does the testing? People? Software? AI? Non-bullshit answer, please. @ B) Why exactly is there "more testing" in Emergent Coding than in normal software creation paradigm? Why is emergent coding different? Do the developers who work in this paradigm are somehow special? Are the programming languages magical? @ C) What are the specific software tools used for this "testing"? "Agents" is a non-answer, so don't even try. @@@@ 7. Please provide a simple demo binary of a simple program created completely using your "Emergent Coding" and also provide all the binary sub-component files that make up the final binary. Requirements: There has to be a minimum of 3 sub - binaries making up the final big binary for this to be valid. 2 or less does not count. None of the binaries can be obfuscated, they have to be clean X86/X86_64 machine code binaries. Notes: It should be incredibily simple, quick and easy task for you, since designing such a complex and apparently breakthough system must have required thousands, tens of thousands if not hundereds of thousands tests. All of these tests produced working binaries - after all you wouldn't claim you have a working marvellous revolutionary product without extensive testing, right? -- You have 18 hours for this task -- Of course, If you are saying the truth and have truly developed this revolutionary "emergent coding" binary-on-the-fly-merging technology, this should normally take you under 18 minutes to just find the test samples and upload them. @@@@ 8. Please construct a simple (binary or source) single-use-compiler demo that will combine 3 or more sub-binaries into final working product. Please upload the sub-binaries and the "single-use compiler" to publicly available site so people in our community can verify that your product is actually working. The single-use-compiler binary can be obfuscated with proper tool in order to hide your precious intellectual property. The 3 sample sub-binaries cannot be obfuscated. They have to be pure, clean, binary X86/X86_64 machine code. Everything has to be working and verifable of course. -- You have 72 hours to complete this task -- I understand all your technologies are patented with patents that basically predate Bitcoin and you are giving us obfuscated binaries, so you don't have to worry about anybody stealing your company's intellectual property, right? @@@@ 9. You mentioned the only application I need to create programs using Emergent Coding is the pilot app. @ - What programming language(s) is the pilot app written in? @@@@ 10. When you developed the Emerging Coding, before it started existing, you couldn't have used emergent coding to create the first (test & development) applications because it is a chicken and egg problem. @ - What programming language did you use to create first client/server/api/daemon/tool used to merge multiple binaries into one in Emergent Coding? @@@@ 11. Please list all of your current programmers and programming language each of them is using next to their name. Also provide LinkedIn profiles if applicable. -- You have 18 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 12. Please also list all Development Environments (IDEs) used by your current programmers next to their name. -- You have 18 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 13. Please list all compilers used by your current programmers next to their name. -- You have 18 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 14. So if I understand correctly CodeValley will be the company who runs $50 million BCH tech park and the tech will house multiple Bitcoin Cash-related startup and companies. Let's say I have a BCH startup and I would like to rent a loft/spot in your "tech park". A) Please provide a PDF of sample basic contract you have (hopefully) prepared for such startups. -- You have 4 hours to complete this task -- B) How much does the rent cost per a room (or m^2/sqft) for a month and for a year? @@@@ 15. Please submit the list of compilers that produce X86/X86_64/ARM binaries compatibile with Emergent Coding "mash-it-together" "binary compiler". -- You have 4 hours to complete this task -- @@@@ 16. Is it possible for Emergent Coding to merge multiple non-binary applications (like Python or PHP programs) together? Or is it just binaries? -------------------- Who are you? I am a freedom thinker and individual independent from all infuences who just does what he finds appropriate at the moment. Disclaimer to preempt questions: }- I do not work for anybody }- I do not have any hidden agenda }- I am only doing what I think is right }- I am a born revolutionist, this is why I am in Bitcoin -------------------- Why are you doing this? }- Because I believe in truth above all. Truth will save us. }- Because I believe in Satoshi's peer-to-peer cash for the world vision and I will not stray from this path. }- Because most people are apparently missing psychological immune system which is why attempts like Blockstream, nChain appear and are repetedly [at least partially] successful. I have an anti-bullshit immune system that works great against this type of attacks. I was actually one of the first to be banned in /r/Bitcoin sub for pointing out their lies with manipulations and [to spot Craig Wright's attempt to infiltrate and bend /r/btc sub to his will.](https://old.reddit.com/r/btc/comments/6kjo3y/somebody_is_pumping_craig_wright_on_this_sub_to/). }- Because I was fooled twice by entities similar to CodeValley before (namingly nChain and Blockstream) and **I will not be fooled again. Bitcoin Cash will not be co-opted easily as long as I am here**. }- Because if Bitcoin Cash community is an organism, then I became a [B lymphocyte cell](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B_cell). I produce antibodies. I show you how to defend yourself from bullshit, lies and manipulation.

I don't buy this emergent coding hype and I think it could potentially be dangerous. If you want to understand why, read on. 1. I have watched [the presentation](https://youtu.be/hl_rKMATAm8) about Emergent Coding. What I can say is that it is completely devoid of substance. Coparison to Toyota in 1960 is NOT substance. 2. I also read "[Jonald Fyookball's article](https://medium.com/@jonaldfyookball/what-is-emergent-coding-46d182020043)" about Emergent Coding. The same case - no substance at all. 3. When I go to https://codevalley.com/ - the creators of Emergent coding "paradigm" (is this even a paradigm), first thing I see is "buy license". Why do I need a license to even understand what it actually is and how it works? 4. When I try to go to "documentation" (https://codevalley.com/docs) and what do I get ? "This Page Requires Sign In" 5. Google "emergent coding", "emergent coding in practice", "emergent coding examples" returns absolutely nothing. I am a very skeptical person. When some new idea is presented to me, I require for the idea to be presented fully, with in-depth specifics and live examples, working examples. What I need is - Examples of existing, successful projects that use emergent coding - List of tools that are used to practice "emergent coding". The tools should be open source preferably. - Detailed description of how cooperation between teams leading to finishing a software product works in emergent coding And I need it without paying for anything or registering anywhere. Why does every important information required to actually understand what Emergent Coding is about paywalled? My bullshit detector is already at 40% of the scale. So calling bullshit. This all seems like a huge corporate elaborate scam or fad created to get huge money from big corporations. Is perhaps the whole "emergent coding" patented and/or licensed, so companies/people/projects who didn't pay cannot even use it? Seems likely from the look of things. Or maybe is this **another nChain in the making?** I am open to other opinions, so please prove me wrong.

I have reviewed them myself on different occasions and they all were on my RES-tag shill list. When you are a dishonest shill, you have to tread carefully, because mods will use any excuse to ban you. And I cannot blame the mods, to be honest. Shills are annoying people who are being massively downvoted on this sub - meaning they are not wanted by the populace of this sub. Yet they somehow persist and lower the quality of our lives every day. If I was a mod, I would ban them too, on the first occasion the sub rules would allow me to. However, shills still deserve free speech as /r/btc is a free speech subreddit above all, so as long as they play by the rules of the sub, they should get it. I do not like to play devil's advocate, but I would encourage mods to unban this one unjustly banned shill (probably by mistake). I don't think it will hurt.

I just wonder what are the "super cool things" everybody in crypto is so excited about. If they are doable on BCH without affecting its main functions (P2P Cash), that could be beneficial.

I have observed the same while watching shills. I know because watch some of the shills even after they stop shilling. It has been happening in this sub since 2018. It's like some shill accounts, with years of reddit tenure, just interrupt their normal activities for few months, then - for seemingly no logical reason - start intensively shilling or trolling this sub with specific narratives and then leave again and go back to their normal activities. I was wondering if the accounts were sold, but apparently not. They were just being paid to shill for specific amount of time with specific narratives. After some time (6 months, year) their sockpuppet masters switch accounts and start paying somebody else for the same. The purpose of this mode of operation is probably to make it look like the "criticism" is organic, not shilling.

I guess real sale data from actual existing brick-and-mortar shops and warehouses that ship items is the only metric that could be *somewhat* trusted. But I guess sales data from shops with non-physical items such as MMO/Multiplayer games/items and coupons could count too. All the sales data should be at least moderately real-time (24h delay maximum).

You cannot know for sure when a person is a troll/shill (well, unless you are me or you run your own "shill catalog" that is). A lot of shills have positive karma. Their methods will improve now. Don't think this is over. They are having strategy meetings right now, I have observed this about 7-8 times now every time there is a significant change in the ecosystem. They will form up their new strategy and attack again within 2-3 days is my best guess. [Not sure how long is the min karma rule in place, so the 3 days may have passed already].

The opinion which that account stated is not his real opinion, he is only saying what he has to say because he is paid for it or he profits from the opinion directly.
