The Pantercon Crypto One-Time One – Part 2: What is a crypto currency like Bitcoin?

Real currencies, as explained in the last article, are used by everyone, but they are centrally controlled from a location that doesn“t necessarily bring benefits. The crypto currency, on the other hand, is a product of the blockchain and completely decentralized, because nobody has control over it and everyone can use it anywhere and at any time.

The Bitcoin was developed in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto. You don“t know who or what it is, so Bitcoin can never disappear or be banned because there is no company. The Internet should be banned. It is believed that it was developed to counter the banking crisis. The people had lost confidence in the banks and the financial sector, with the Bitcoin a decentralized currency was created, which should solve all these doubts and problems.

The price of crypto currencies is not set from one place, but is based solely on supply and demand.

How many coins does a crypto currency have?

For most crypto currencies, the maximum number of coins that can be issued is determined by a cryptographic algorithm at the time the coin is created and cannot be changed. This makes the coins secure and rare – it is a good „store of value“.

In contrast to conventional Fiat money, crypto currencies are not inflationary, but deflationary currencies. This means that there is not more money in circulation than there is, as with Fiat money, but less. This is because people lose their private keys and the coins stored on these accounts can no longer be used.

Crypto currencies are a „simple unit of account“, they are easy to divide. The smallest unit of e.g. Bitcoin is 1 Satoshi, which is 1 millionth Bitcoin.

The transaction of crypto currencies costs practically nothing and is done in seconds. This makes it a perfect „means of transport“.

Double Spending? What is it?

The problem of „Double Spending“, i.e. using the coins twice, is caused by the decentralization. Digital goods can easily be copied like photos, MP3s or even films. These copies are identical and free of charge.

In conventional, centralized financial systems, this is managed and controlled by a third party, this party is missing in decentralized systems.

This raises the question whether coins are not also easy to copy, like these goods? The answer is simple: no!

In the crypto currency systems the double-spending problem is solved by Formation of a decentralized and counterfeit-proof blockchain and its consensus solved (more on this in another article). The blockchain is an unchangeable transaction history of a decentralized community.

Where are crypto currencies stored?

Crypto currencies are stored directly on the blockchain. There is a difference between tokens and coins.

A token is a crypto currency that does not have its own blockchain, but is based on a foreign blockchain. For example, you can generate ERC-20 tokens via the blockchain Ethereum and give them any name you like, e.g. PANX.

Coins, on the other hand, are generated via the own blockchain. Bitcoin – bitcoin, Ethereum – Ether, just to name the best known.

Account formation plays an important role in the development of a financial system.

An account on a blockchain is usually created via a so-called „wallet“, a repository for digital currencies. Such accounts are not linked to the name and data of the account holder, but consist only of a „private key“ and a „public address“.

The Private Key is the personal, private key with which you can log into your account. It is a random number between 1 and 2² which is a 78-digit number. There are just as many variations of keys.

So you can imagine it better: It is estimated that the earth has a 51-digit number of atoms. An unimaginable number.

So there are almost infinitely many private keys that can be used.

If such a wallet is stored on the mobile phone and the phone is lost, the wallet is still there. As long as the private key is present, it can be restored anytime and anywhere.

The Private Key must not be passed on and must be kept in a safe place. If it is lost, the account cannot be restored and all crypto currencies on it are lost forever. If it is passed on to third parties, they can freely dispose of that account, it is as if the signatory number and the password of the online banking, including TAN numbers, were passed on.

Steal or hack coins?

In the media you often read that someone has had their coins stolen, this is only possible if the private key was either given away or not kept well enough and could be stolen. Hacking such an account or blockchain is not possible.

It is important to understand what the press means by blockchain hack, because they convey it wrongly, either out of ignorance or intention.

To transfer tokens/coins to customers, the stock exchange requires the private key, which they store in encrypted form. Since the control of the private key now lies with the exchange and not with the customer, it is always risky to leave large sums on Exchangers. Because if a brute force attack should take place, it can be that exactly your private key is among the stolen ones.

If one speaks of hacked, a hacker has succeeded in decrypting the private keys of customers by brute force attacks on a stock exchange and thus gaining control over their tokens/coins.

The public address is an alphanumeric code and is derived from the private key and generated automatically. It usually consists of 34 digits and numbers and is equivalent to the IBAN of your account. You can tell this key to people who should transfer coins to you. The other person only has to scan the code to your address or enter the code and you can transfer coins in any number. It is impossible to guess the private key by the public address.

Conclusion: Crypto currencies are absolutely forgery-proof and decentralized currencies, provided the account holder pays attention to his private key!

Pantercon informs – Gold, Money, Crypto, Bitcoin, Gold-2.0

Why money is less safe than you think

Pantercon informs - Gold, Money, Crypto, Bitcoin, Gold-2.0

The Pantercon Crypto times table – Part 1: What is Money?

Money is the primary means of payment today, but its value is not the same as it used to be. In order to understand the background exactly, we start at the very beginning – with gold.

How does gold work as money?

In the Stone Age, money in kind, commodity money and utility money such as animals, rare stones, shells, fruits, spices and much more were used as means of payment. But they were often difficult to handle, because every single thing had a different value. Not even 2 cows necessarily had the same value – one gave more milk than another.

In order to simplify the barter transactions, the people used starting from approx. 1000 before Christ, primarily gold, so-called coin money as means of payment. Around 500 B.C. King Croesus had the first coins minted. It had certain advantages over all other goods and fulfilled the criteria to be officially recognized as currency or means of payment.

-Gold is rare and cannot be reproduced, changed or died. Therefore it is a good store of value.
-It is transportable – compared to animals it is a good means of transport, because it is small.
-Simple unit of account – 1 ounce of gold always has the same value as another ounce of gold, there were no differences

Gold had no intrinsic value such as animals or rice, which one could eat, or fabrics from which clothes could be sewn. Gold was „only“ gold and served „only“ as a means of payment. For example, a gold chain could be made from it, but it was still gold. Trust in gold was the only value and since everyone used and accepted it, the value and trust increased. Trust is the most important factor for a means of payment.

Gold was a decentralized means of payment. That is, there was not one place that spent gold, but anyone could get it out of the ground and use it. Everyone and yet nobody had control over it.

But gold also has its disadvantages:

-It is rare, but counterfeiters added copper to increase the quantity.
-It is small, but heavy and therefore the transport is not always comfortable.
-It is difficult to share, e.g. in shops. You couldn’t just cut off a piece of the ounce

From gold to money

Around 1500 A.D. people found a seemingly perfect solution. Promissory notes. The bank issued a promissory note for the value of the gold deposit. This reflected the exact value of the inlaid gold and was thus covered in gold. This is also called the gold standard, which applied from 1870. Gold standard means that the bank was obliged to redeem the promissory notes.

Thus paper money was born and had some advantages:

-Since it was tied to gold, it was just as rare as gold, so it had the same value. Due to the elaborate design of the promissory notes, they could not be forged. It was therefore a good store of value.
-The paper money is small and light and therefore easy to transport, so it is also a good transport medium.
-It is easy to divide, as there are different size units, so a good unit of account is a good one.

By making it used by all people, everyone had confidence in it. If you had brought it to the bank, you would have easily recovered the gold you had put in before.

What’s Fiat money?

Paper money was the perfect means of payment until the central banks made a big mistake in the 1944s. They considered the gold standard, which had already been suspended during the First World War, unimportant, because nobody intended to exchange the paper money back into gold and slowly abolished it.

From 1944 to 1971, only the dollar was tied to gold. Gold cover in the dollar was replaced by unofficial oil cover after a massive crisis in the 1970s. Thus, King Dollar could keep the trust of the people but the gold standard and thus the real value was no longer available.

They began to print more money than the equivalent in gold was available and they continue to do so. It’s like taking a banknote at home and copying it. That is forbidden for you, but the central banks are allowed to do it, and they alone are allowed to do it! It is only possible for the central banks and allowed to produce the money, so it is central.

Digital with electronic money it is even easier to increase money. It can be multiplied quite simply, that is how it is usually done – it is created out of nothing.

By this money multiplication the value of the money sinks approx. 4-5% per year – this is called inflation. If one calculates the value of a 100EUR bill at the beginning of the Euro issue and now 16 years later, then it is clear that a 100EUR bill is far from worth 100EUR anymore, but not even half. In principle a banknote is not worth more than a piece of paper. Thus, it has lost the criterion for a good store of value.

The fact that it is centrally controlled by one body, namely the central bank, has disadvantages:

-It has full command.
-The bank can determine when money can be withdrawn
-She can also determine how much money you can withdraw.
-It determines who can have an account
-The bank can simply freeze an account, you don’t get a cent more! E.g. Greece or Cyprus and also with us such a scenario would be theoretically possible overnight.

Just like gold, money has no inherent value, the value is based purely on trust. But since everyone around the world accepts today’s money, trust is assured.

If every person would go to the bank at the same time and claim the saved money, there would be a massive problem. It is not available! It exists mostly only digitally and also in gold it could not be paid out, because the value is not covered for a long time any more. Nowadays money has absolutely nothing more to do with gold and is therefore called Fiat money.

It is to be hoped that this scenario does not arrive, because if it did, the financial world would collapse on the spot and chaos would break out.

If the cash were to be abolished, as the plan has already been expressed several times, the central banks would have control over everything and everyone. For some reason, the central bank could restrict the use of each individual, you would be completely destitute, from one moment to the next.

The question then arises: is trust in today’s money or in central banks really justified?

Crypto currencies, the new #Goldstandard2000

In 2008, a new form of currency was developed, the crypto currency. No matter if you use Bitcoin, Ether or any other digital crypto currency, they all run through a blockchain and are decentralized.

Strictly speaking, crypto currencies are like gold, only in new, digital technology. The volatility exists only for the reason, because crypto currencies are traded and are subject to fluctuations in the purchase and sale.

If, for example, Bitcoin were the new currency that everyone uses, then it would no longer be traded and it would become stable. Also the confidence in it grows. It is the simple explanation of supply and demand: if a lot is sold, the supply increases – the value decreases. If a lot is bought, the supply falls – the value rises.

The advantages of crypto currencies are obvious:

-They are completely open to anyone, anyone can use them, there is no place that would or could forbid it.
-24/7 access (24 hours a day, 7 days a week)
-Visible for everyone
-Not hackable, since no central party has access or can change anything at will
-It is not manipulable and cannot fall victim to thieves. because it is stored decentrally on many PCs at the same time.
-Not reproducible with a fixed coin offer – no inflation

Many banks and financial experts still like to talk badly about crypto currencies at the moment. But if you look at fiat money – today’s money and crypto currencies exactly, then the regular currencies have their certain and specific shortcomings that the money economy is aware of.

The only drawback of crypto currencies is their volatility (the extent to which prices, stocks, currencies, interest rates or even entire markets fluctuate within a short period of time), which is itself offset by the annual 4-5% depreciation of regular currencies.

Franchising is a way to success

Get your own business by running a Franchise

Franchising has gained on popularity the past couple of decades. No matter where you look, you realize you are very often dealing with a Franchise, for many reasons. Franchising has come a long way and is highly recognized now, considering that a lot of companies became successful because they were part of a big franchise system. When people think about franchising they usually think about restaurants or clothing brands, but there are more possibilities.

GMC AG, for example, offers their Business Center concept as a franchise system. It is a popular system which is based on a great business concept. Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG says, franchising opens up a lot of opportunities.

Business Center offer completeley equipped offices and conference rooms, that can be rented for a few days, weeks or even months and years. Business Center are perfect for franchising, because there is a great demand in renting shortterm-offices, rather than committing to one permanent office. And people like to move to different places and then know they can get the same quality and service like what they are already used to, says Rieta de Soet.

There are a lot of benefits coming from franchising. Franchising is perfect for people who want to pursuit their dream of having their own company. However franchising can minimize the risk of financial bankruptcy, because the new owner gets to work with a proven system, claims Rieta de Soet, CEO of Global Management Consultants AG.

Über GMC AG

GMC AG mit Hauptsitz in Zug/Schweiz, ist mit zahlreichen Business Centern international in Amerika, Australien, Asien und Europa vertreten. In seinen Business Centern stehen Betriebswirte, Steuerberater, Marketing- und Unternehmensberater den Kunden zur Verfügung, die seit über 20 Jahren in den Bereichen Business Center, Firmengründung und Managementberatung tätig sind.

Indoor Skydiving Germany Group successfully files for utility model invalidation against iFly / Skyventure Group

Gladbeck, November 14, 2018 – Indoor Skydiving Germany Group (ISG) achieved another major breakthrough in its patent litigation against iFly/Skyventure Group (Skyventure) at the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) which ruled that the utility model DE 20 2005 021 913 U1 of Skyventure International (UK) Ltd. is fully invalid. The decision of the DPMA may be appealed by Skyventure.

The ruling of the DPMA effectively blocks the latest attempt by Skyventure to obtain a court judgement on the basis of the already in August 2015 expired and unexamined utility model DE 20 2005 021 913. The DPMA has declared the utility model DE 20 2005 021 913 fully ineffective from its original date onwards. The DPMA ruled that the claims of the utility model were ineligible for protection. Also, the DPMA rejected two auxiliary claim sets which Skyventure newly presented during the oral proceedings held on October 2, 2018 in a failed attempt to uphold a limited version of the utility model.

The DPMA ruled Skyventure to carry the costs of the proceedings.

„We never doubted the expertise of the DPMA and we are pleased that it has once again been established that the legal attacks by iFLY are without basis,“ says Boris Nebe, the managing director of ISG.

Inspired by humanity“s timeless dream of flight, the Indoor Skydiving Germany Group develops and builds vertical wind tunnels to simulate free-fall for indoor skydiving sports and the entertainment market. Their high-performance facilities are also used by parachute athletes and military units for professional training. Over the past few years, the founders of ISG have perfected one of the most sophisticated and low-noise vertical wind tunnel technologies available today. Boris Nebe is the current managing director of the Indoor Skydiving Germany Group, which is based in Gladbeck, North Rhine-Westphalia. More information at www.isg-group.de

LIOcoin Proclaims Partnership with German Private Bank

LIOcoin Proclaims Partnership with German Private Bank

After intense negotiations, LIOcoin management directors conducted their final meeting with the bank board in Munich last week.
Both sides agreed to cooperate closely in establishing LIOcoin as a strong digital currency in international markets. The private bank, whose headquarters are located in Munich, has been offering customers trading in and with crypto currencies since 2018.
With LIOcoin as part of the bank’s trading portfolio, the partnership will expand gradually. The bank was convinced to cooperate with LIOcoin on the base of innovative technology employed in mining, LIOApp as well as LIOcoin’s low risk-profile (being an asset-backed Coin) and the prospective expansion of the company. This successful package is unique in Germany and will advance LIOcoin.

What’s next?

LIOapp will launch by the end of 2018. The app is a multi-currency-app designed to control and manage all digital wallets, which exist on every crypto currency platform. What is unique about LIOapp is that it will allow users to manage all wallets in one app. LIOcoin is also negotiating with different online shops and app providers as well as representatives of different states to negotiate the launch of LIOcoin as a more versatile payment option.
LIO credit card with wallet connection for even easier use of the crypto currency will launch in 2019.

About LIOcoin:

After years of work, the crypto currency LIOcoin launched in 2017 under the roof of the Global Cybersecurity Ltd. & Co. KG located in Cologne and London.
The vision was simple: A coin for everyone to use everywhere – because we believe that crypto currencies are the future of money. The coin is a hybrid coin that is based on two popular blockchain systems and it is minable, which means that the coin is a product of computer based calculation processes. We estimate that about 16.8 billion LIOcoins will be mined over the next few years.
Our mining system is characterized by extremely time and energy efficient and therefore resource-friendly computational methods.
Moreover, LIOcoin is an „Asset-backed Coin“, which means that a substantial part of the funds from pre-sales is reinvested in collateral like promising start-ups, commodities and real estate.
( http://tecfin.info/).
Since September 2018 LIOcoin has been listed on BTC- Alpha, more platforms will follow.

(Stuttgart/Tübingen/Reutlingen/Göppingen) – As part of the EU project ILDA-care, a delegation of Danish entrepreneurs has visited the STERN BioRegion. ILDA-care stands for „Intelligent Logistics, Digitalisation and Automated Workflows for the Homecare and Nursing homes sector“ and is an initiative to systematically improve efficiency in this field. The participants from Denmark gained exceptional insights into innovative solutions from Baden-Württemberg for the care sector.

A major challenge for societies in industrialised nations is the rapidly growing number of older people and those in need of care. According to a forecast by Germany’s Federal Statistical Office, the number of people in Germany requiring care could rise to 3.4 million by 2030. To improve assistance for them at nursing facilities or in their own homes, solutions need to be found that allow care staff to focus on personal support for people instead of using up their scarce resources on time-consuming formal work processes. ILDA-care has been given a total budget of just under EUR 210,000 by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to face this challenge. Numerous small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the STERN BioRegion and Denmark and a number of research institutes are involved in the research project.

The EU project aims to form a new value chain that links together intelligent logistics, digitalisation and automation for the care sector. The Danish Welfare Tech cluster from Odense and Stuttgart-based BioRegio STERN Management GmbH are collaborating for ILDA-care. As part of this strategic international partnership, entrepreneurs from the STERN BioRegion visited the cluster in Denmark in June and learned about the exemplary Danish healthcare system. In October, their peers from Scandinavia travelled to Baden-Württemberg to find out about innovative care solutions in Tübingen, Reutlingen, Göppingen and Stuttgart.

The first port of call was the LebensPhasenHaus (LPH) in Tübingen, where the participants were welcomed by Thorsten Flink, Managing Director of the City of Tübingen’s WIT General Business Development Unit. The LPH is a joint research, demonstration and knowledge transfer project whose organisers include the University and the University Hospital of Tübingen and is open to everyone. Here, the entrepreneurs from Denmark weren’t just able to see age-appropriate assistance systems, digital information and communication technologies with easy-to-use control interfaces and intelligent networking of systems in action. They also had the opportunity to observe how equipment and services are tested, evaluated and made accessible for visitors.

In Reutlingen, the programme of events included a visit to the BruderhausDiakonie Gustav-Werner-Stift retirement centre. Following a welcome by Alexander Kreher, City of Reutlingen mayor with responsibility for finance and economic affairs, the delegation was able to inspect innovative technologies for care at the centre. BruderhausDiakonie works closely with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA in Stuttgart, which has implemented ambient assisted living (AAL) and smart home systems into a number of BruderhausDiakonie buildings. Among other things, the Danish delegation was given a demonstration of the Safe@home warning system, which automatically alerts helpers in the event of a fall or accident. Sensors fitted in the room can detect any unusually fast change in a person’s centre of gravity if they fall, and trigger an alarm via a CareBox.

Computer games that are specially designed for senior citizens are used in daycare to encourage residents to perform mental arithmetic or play skill-based games. As the system uses a sensor to detect the seated players‘ movements, their memory and motor skills are developed simultaneously, without any use of a mouse or keyboard. The enthusiasm shown by the elderly people also impressed Lars M. Jessen, CEO of a Danish IT company that develops software solutions for the in- and out-patient care sector. For him, it was a „real light bulb moment“ to see how computer games are integrated into everyday care. „Companies, institutions and local authorities work together here successfully as partners to develop and implement innovations.“

The visit to the Göppingen campus at Esslingen University was another revealing experience for the guests. Alexander Fromm from the Göppingen District Business Development Unit welcomed the delegation to the Care Lab (CarLa), which has been set up as part of the applied medical technology research project. This offers a realistic environment that enables the development and testing of technical solutions for the care of the elderly.

The programme also featured visits to the microelectronics transfer centre TZM GmbH in Göppingen and Fraunhofer IPA, as well as presentations by several companies from the STERN BioRegion that are involved with technical innovations in the care sector.

In the workshop that followed, the entrepreneurs and researchers used these practical examples and the lively discussions to develop a number of concrete ideas on care at home. „The two ILDA-care delegation trips impressed all the participants, generated new contacts and initiated actual cooperation projects,“ said BioRegio STERN project manager Dr. Margot Jehle. „We can already speak of a new bridge for healthcare technology between Germany and Denmark.“
