I must have missed an announcement... but what is this message about on the add Fractional Sanctuaries page?

"Investment not accepted


Sorry, our fractional sanctuaries are currently being upgraded to POOS. Please try back on September 1st, 2020."

Is there a link to details on the POOS upgrade?

Pretty interesting article. AND it was updated just last week. To me, the most interesting part was the final line: "In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, prominent economists have noted that a digital currency would have made it easier for the government to send stimulus checks to workers." Just like the gov'ment to make it all about supporting the people...

Ultimately it just come back around to control. They've realized that the nature of crypto is actually way easier to track than cash. But they don't want decentralized crypto (especially privacy coins), they want to keep it centralized and have control over the exchanges.

Yeah, exactly, and, I think it will be the only way to usher in the New World Order, and, the Beast system.

Yeah, the mandatory upgrade is close to being released.  So you didn't actually miss it.

Let me post the wiki for POOS, and, please check back in a couple hours and I'll post the mandatory upgrade info, etc.

Here is the POOS payment page:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Sanctuary_Child_Sponsorship

I will create a page for the September mandatory upgrade.

Whew! Okay, thank you. I've been around this project since 2018, and usually I'm more of a lurker and just mining in the background, but I try to keep up with major changes.

I don't know if it'd be possible but an anonymous & private stablecoin would be a unique offering. They've busted more than few crime rings laundering money with BTC, or illegal trades online that paid with BTC. FBI just love crypto to track people down using all the global exchanges to confirm the chain of custody.

MOISES' UPDATE!!!

Iím not a 100% on the medication he is on
now, but it just makes his heart pump. It doesnít make it better in any
way.

He needs a heart transplant. But first he needs an LVAD surgery, which they
do not want to do.

please don't forget to donate and keepup your prayers for moises cabrera

Hi Togo,

Yes-- please go ahead -- we have uploaded the binaries also.

I am working on a last minute document and I believe the release will be out in a couple more hours.

Thanks,
Rob

Hmm, interesting idea -- one other thing you could tie into it is some type of key that cant be broken by quantum computers. 
The question is though, even if you pulled off a completely private and untraceable chain, what would the stance of that community be when the Feds and SEC make a rule that that coin cannot be traded without a KYC (IE the way BTC deposits must go through AML dumps from coinbase etc).  Im sure the trading could occur on anonymous exchanges, but I wonder if the big govts like China and the US will ever block ports on coins that are privacy coins.

I did consider that since a coin tied to fiat USD value can never be truly free of government intervention. I did like the idea of DAI keeping a stable value of $1 through exchange trader arbitrage, but they've had liquidity issues. I think Bitcoin and altcoins can succeed once fiat fails, but I think it'd be a difficult and painful transition. A stablecoin would be a good intermediary but having anonymity would almost seem impossible. A fork of Monero or ZCash that has a stable value could take what is cash bills we use for buying & selling to be the online equivalent.

At the end of Sep 2019, BiblePay donated over $194k to charities...


https://whitewalr.us/2019/biblepay-charity-donations.html


I was looking at the Foundation. Type CR means the "income" BiblePay Foundation earned. And Type DR means the donations it made to the various non-profits?


So total donated is $227k as of June 2020?

Is BiblePay Unchained hosting files on Amazon S3 regions only (up to 4)? https://wiki.biblepay.org/Using_Unchained


I recall you had CloudFlare at some point and before that we had IPFS node we could run ourselves to support the BiblePay file hosting network.

I recall you had CloudFlare at some point and before that we had IPFS node we could run ourselves to support the BiblePay file hosting network.

The sanctuaries sync the sidechain metadata (this points a BBP transaction to a BIPFS transactionID), and the data itself (the file data is on S3).  (Until the day we have a multicity s3-raid drive created by multiple sanctuaries).

Hosting the files ourselves is not really a viable option - except for small amounts - since a 40gb sanctuary is not going to put a dent in the storage reqs.  We have 16 terabytes of Christian content already, and this way S3 can handle an influx of large storage reqs. 

With Unchained, today in production, you can upload a 400 meg video through biblepay, and pay for it, and it will successfully host for a year over multiple regions.
