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!

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.

Since September 2018 LIOcoin has been listed on BTC- Alpha, more platforms will follow.

Schönes neues Geld – Warum uns eine totalitäre Weltwährung droht

Die Bequemlichkeit der bargeldlosen Welt hat ihren Preis. Wer ihn kassiert und wer ihn bezahlt, erklärt Norbert Häring in seinem hochspannenden Buch.

Schönes neues Geld - Warum uns eine totalitäre Weltwährung droht

Die Zukunft des Bezahlens ist in der Gegenwart angekommen. In Seattle empfängt das erste Amazon-Go-Ladengeschäft die Allgemeinheit. Dort muss man nicht einmal mehr eine Karte zücken, denn der Verkäufer und derjenige, der das Geld verwaltet, sind eins. Nötig ist nur die kostenlose App und schon heißt es: Pay-as-you-go. Bequemer geht es kaum.

Norbert Häring formuliert es so: Alle Bequemlichkeit ist auf unserer Seite, alle Macht auf der anderen. Und er zeigt, warum uns das beunruhigen sollte: Bargeld ist nicht altmodisch, wie uns Unternehmen wie Mastercard, Visa, Amazon oder Microsoft erklären, sondern das einzige Zahlungsmittel, das unsere Freiheit und Unabhängigkeit schützt.

Doch Regierungen aller Couleur, von Schweden bis Saudi Arabien arbeiten einträchtig in einer großen Public-Private-Partnership gegen das Bargeld. Unter den Schlagworten „finanzielle Inklusion“ und „digitale Identität“ hat sich eine Allianz aus G20-Staaten, US-Konzernen und reichen Stiftungen formiert, deren Ziel es ist, die globale Digitalisierung des Zahlungsverkehrs und die biometrisch-digitale Erfassung aller Bürger voranzutreiben.

Das Brisante daran: Öffentlichkeit und Volksvertreter bekommen von dieser Entwicklung kaum etwas mit. Die Abschaffung der Privatsphäre in Finanzdingen wird fernab der Parlamente in einem diffusen transnationalen Nirgendwo beschlossen. Für Häring ist klar: Wir sollen bald nur noch digital bezahlen dürfen, denn den Konzernen bringt das Profit und immer genauere Kundendaten, den Regierungen bringt es Kontrolle. Der Autor ist überzeugt: Mit dem Ende des Bargelds bewegen wir uns auf eine total überwachte Gesellschaft zu.

Norbert Häring dokumentiert den heimlichen Krieg der globalen Standardsetzer in Basel und Paris gegen das Bargeld an eindrucksvollen Beispielen. Er belegt wie die Komplizenschaft von Regierungen und Großkonzernen in zahlreichen Ländern – von Kenia über Indien bis Deutschland – besonders den ohnehin Benachteiligten schadet, zu deren Wohl sie die Bar-geldbeseitigung angeblich vorantreiben. Ein aufrüttelndes und wichtiges Buch.
