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.

Yanmar stellt neue Radlader-Reihe vor

Die Modelle V7 und V8 überzeugen mit Kompaktheit und Leistungsstärke.

Yanmar stellt neue Radlader-Reihe vor

Die neuen Yanmar Kompakt-Radlader überzeugen mit Leistungsstärke und kompakten Abmessungen.

Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (Yanmar) präsentiert erstmalig in Europa seine neue Radlader-Reihe: Die Modelle V7 und V8 werden heute exklusiv auf der NordBau in Neumünster am Stand von Yanmar-Partner HKL BAUMASCHINEN gezeigt. Die neuen Produkte ergänzen das bestehende Portfolio des Baumaschinenherstellers an Hydraulikbaggern. Damit stärkt Yanmar seine Marktposition und die seiner Partner im Kompaktmaschinen-Sektor. Die neuen Radlader begegnen den Markterfordernissen auf ganzer Linie: Sie kombinieren Service- und Wartungsfreundlichkeit mit Umweltfreundlichkeit, hoher Funktionalität und Leistungsstärke.

Bei der Entwicklung der neuen Radlader stand für Yanmar die Qualität stets im Vordergrund. Die Modelle V7 und V8 werden von Yanmar-Motoren angetrieben, die für ihre Zuverlässigkeit und geringen Kraftstoffverbrauch bekannt sind. Auch wurden ausschließlich robuste Komponenten namhafter Zulieferer verwendet. Der V7 mit einem Einsatzgewicht von 4.100 Kilogramm hat eine Nutzlast von 1.800 Kilogramm, der V8 mit einem Einsatzgewicht von 4.350 Kilogramm eine Nutzlast von 2.100 Kilogramm. Ein kraftvoller hydrostatischer Fahrantrieb garantiert herausragende Schub- und Hubkräfte. Zusätzlich sind die Modelle mit Inch-Brems-Pedal erhältlich – diese Kombination ermöglicht eine optimale Kräfteverteilung zwischen Fahrantrieb und Arbeitshydraulik. Durch die Verwendung einer Z-Kinematik am Hubgerüst werden hohe Losreißkräfte erzielt.

Die spezielle Struktur ihres Hinterrahmens und der in Reihe eingebaute Motor garantieren besten Zugang zu allen Service- und Wartungspunkten. Die hydraulische Schnellwechsel-Einrichtung (SWE) in Kombination mit der Standard-Arbeitshydraulik ermöglicht den Einsatz von verschiedenen Anbauwerkzeugen. Der Fahrer kann leicht zwischen Standardschaufel und Palettengabel wechseln, ohne dabei die Kabine verlassen zu müssen. Mini-Mess-Punkte zum Überprüfen der hydraulischen Komponenten sind leicht zugänglich installiert und bereits in der Standardausführung enthalten. Ein Knickgelenk zwischen Vorder- und Hinterrahmen in Kombination mit einer Pendelachse am Hinterrahmen bieten eine sehr gute Stabilität beim Fahren in unebenem Gelände. Durch den zusätzlichen Einsatz einer Differentialsperre mit Bedarfsschaltung (nur für das größere Modell V8 erhältlich) kann der Fahrer stets die Zugkraft des Laders selbst bei den schlechtesten Bodenverhältnissen optimieren.

Bei der Gestaltung des Fahrerstandes wurde hoher Wert auf Ergonomie und Komfort gelegt. Mit großen Glasfenstern bietet die Kabine eine sehr gute 360-Grad-Rundumsicht. Ein Multifunktions-Joystick ermöglicht das gleichzeitige Bedienen aller Fahr- und Arbeitsfunktionen. Ein bequemer Sitz, verstellbare Armlehnen und ein verstellbares Lenkrad helfen, das frühzeitige Ermüden des Fahrers zu vermeiden und tragen damit zur Sicherheit auf der Baustelle bei.

Die wesentlichen Merkmale der neuen Radlader-Reihe auf einen Blick
_kompakte Abmessungen bei einer Gesamthöhe unter 2,5 Metern
_Heavy-Duty-Konzept für das Knickgelenk und die Pendelachse
_leistungsstarker hydrostatischer Fahrantrieb mit optionalem High-Speed-Mode und optionaler Langsamfahrteinrichtung
_leistungsstarke Arbeitshydraulik mit optionaler vierter Arbeitshydraulik und / oder einem High Flow Kit
_Z-Kinematik-System mit hoher Losbrechkraft und 360-Grad-Sicht rund um die Maschine
_viele andere Optionen und Anbaugeräte machen die Yanmar-Radlader zu perfekten Maschinen für verschiedene Anwendungen auf der Baustelle

Einsatzgewicht V7: 4.100 kg | V8: 4.350 kg
Motorleistung V7: 50 PS| V8:50 PS
Schaufelkapazität V7: 0.7 m³ | V8: 0.8 m³

Austrian Mint immortalises the 2015 Life Ball poster on a medal

Golden Conchita – the ESC winner is the subject in Klimt-style

Austrian Mint immortalises the 2015 Life Ball poster on a medal

#lifeballmedal of the Austrian Mint / #lifeballmedaille von Münze Österreich

Conchita Wurst on the #lifeballmedal (https://www.muenzeoesterreich.at/eng/kampagne/life-ball/medal)

The motto of the 2015 Life Ball is „Ver Sacrum – Santa Primavera – Sacre du Printemps“ and will, for the 23rd time, bring international attention to the fight against HIV/AIDS. In glittering gold and inspired by Viennese Secessionists, this charity event is not only a sensual celebration of the joy of living, but also a call for greater acceptance.

Portrayed as Golden Adele, the famous portrait by art nouveau artist Gustav Klimt, Conchita Wurst is glamorous as always – the perfect re-casting choice. The spirit of the Vienna Secession is visible on a small scale on the limited edition #lifeballmedal from the Austrian Mint.
Bearded ambassador for acceptance and diversity the in the meantime also called Conchita medal is designed in the style of the „Klimt and his Women“ gold coin series: the portrait of a woman in the foreground is surrounded by typical art nouveau ornamentation. The gold-plated masterpiece, available at https://www.muenzeoesterreich.at/eng/kampagne/life-ball/medal (https://www.muenzeoesterreich.at/eng/kampagne/life-ball/medal) , is not just beautiful: a portion of the proceeds will be donated directly to the AIDS LIFE organisation.

Exceptional Austrians are gilded

With #theunstoppables, appearances at the Life Ball and Eurovision Song Contest and a newly published biography, Conchita Wurst is one of Austria“s most visible personalities. While Conchita was considered an icon even before her „gilding“, entrepreneur“s wife Adele Bloch-Bauer – originally painted by Gustav Klimt – only achieved worldwide recognition through her portrait.Both are available from the Austrian Mint / Münze Österreich for collectors, Conchita fans and Life Ball enthusiasts: Conchita Wurst on the gold-plated Life Ball medal and Adele Bloch-Bauer as a valuable EUR 50 gold coin.

In the coin mint institution of the Republic of Austria famous investment- and collector coins made of gold and silver like the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

Bad Hofgastein, March 6, 2015 – In advance of the eighteenth European Health Forum Gastein (http://www.ehfg.org/home.html) conference, this year themed „Securing Health in Europe. Balancing priorities, sharing responsibilities“ which will take place in Austria´s Gastein Valley from 30th September to 2nd October 2015, the International Forum Gastein has announced its annual search for a winner of its European Health Award. The award of EUR10,000 will be sponsored by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health and FOPI, the association of research-based pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in Austria.

The International Forum Gastein initiated the European Health Award on the occasion of the European Health Forum Gastein´s tenth anniversary in 2007. The Award is intended to celebrate achievements in initiatives addressing European health challenges.

„The purpose of the European Health Award is to promote cross-border working and celebrate European initiatives that tackle today´s health challenges which are more complex and multi-faceted than ever,“ says EHFG President Professor Helmut Brand. „Promoting multi-country working and the development of innovative and sustainable initiatives will help us to meet our vision of a healthy, social and prosperous Europe.“

In 2014 the Award was won by the EpiSouth Plus Project. This Project is aimed at increasing health security in the Mediterranean Area and Balkans by enhancing preparedness to threats, which can affect health security, and to bio-security risks at national/regional levels in the framework of International Health Regulation implementation. Building upon the Network of 27 EU and non-EU Countries established by the previous project EpiSouth (2006-2010), the whole initiative has lasted more than seven years (2006-2014). The project has strengthened countries‘ capacity to cope with health threats through several concerted and coordinated capacity building activities.

Submitted applications will be evaluated by a renowned jury consisting of representatives from the fields of health care, science, politics and economics. Applications to be considered for the award must be submitted by midnight on Friday, 29 May 2015.

Report The market for bathroom furniture in Central Europe until 2020 (Source: Fotolia.com)

Approximately 55% of the Central European output of bathroom furniture and mirror cabinets originates from factories in Germany and Italy. Thereby, the total production volume has decreased by 207 million Euro, equal to 13.9%, from 2007 to 2013.

The volume of imports is also declining, however, this value has only decreased by 10.7% in the last 5 years since 2008.

The export is still suffering from the extreme setback during the global economic crisis in 2008. Afterwards, the markets have not been able to recover sufficiently. Until 2013, the export volume in Central Europe has considerably declined by 15.8%.

The domestic market supply of Central Europe has reached its highest value in 2007 with 1,628 million Euro. After a short temporary peak in 2010, the value is continuously dropping. The current value of 1,421 million Euros equals a decrease of 12.7%. A positive development can only be detected in the German-speaking countries Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

All numerical data refers to net manufacturing sales prices.

A significant concentration of manufacturers is observed in Central Europe.

A total of 207 manufacturers are currently producing bathroom furniture and mirror cabinets in the nine investigated countries. 113 of these, which is equal to 54.6%, are located in the two largest manufacturing countries in Germany and Italy.

The furniture- and kitchen trade is the main distribution channel with more than 35% market share. In Austria and France, the share even rises above the mark of 40%. DIY stores and the bathroom- and sanitary trade both achieve around 21%. The German-speaking countries prevent an even higher proportion of the DIY stores.

Mail order reaches 12% and continues to grow. The larger countries Germany and Great Britain accomplish a market share of 17%. The contract business and the other stationary distribution channels each reach about 5% of the market.

With regards to product lines, the individually planned bathroom furniture easily reach the top position with 37.1%. Only Great Britain and France prevent a higher value. The non-changeable bathroom furniture are following with almost 20% and no major shifts by countries. Single units achieve nearly 18% with only Italy exceeding. Block bathroom furniture accomplish 12.5%. The aggressive pricing markets Great Britain and France reach much higher values.

Mirror cabinets reach a market share of 13% and a total value of 181 million Euro at manufacturing sales prices. Thereof, more than one half is distributed in Germany and France.

Since 1995, we are examining the market for bathroom furniture and mirror cabinets in Germany. Based on the same systematic approach, we have now developed a completely comparable market report for all the countries under investigation for the first time.

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Great Britain and Italy are based on a population of about 315 million people as large as the United States. The area of these countries is the most densely populated and most well-funded region in the world.

In each country, the market study analyzes the most important criteria with the same systematic approach:

– Economic performance
– Stock of flats and development
– Manufacturing structure
– Trade volume
– Stationary trade
– Mail order
– Contract business
– Assortment developments

Our market study, consisting out of 632 pages and more than 400 tables and figures, available in English and German, analyzes the current industry problems and illustrates the major future trends until 2020.

The market study also contains the following distribution addresses:

– More than 200 manufacturers of bathroom furniture from 9 countries
– The 300 leading stationary trade dealers from 9 countries
– More than 160 TOP mail order dealers from 9 countries

The price of the market study amounts to EUR 5,000 plus VAT. The study can be purchased from:
