BitPay Under Fire For Rejecting $100K Bitcoin Amazon Rainforest Donation

{excerpt}
A blocked Bitcoin donation to help the fight against the Amazon Rainforest fires has become the latest publicity headache for BitPay.
According to a social media exchange on August 23, the embattled cryptocurrency payment processor is facing fresh criticism after it failed to allow a $100,000 Bitcoin donation to go through.

         The payment came from a donor to the Amazon Watch charity, which uses BitPay to accept cryptocurrency payments.

   “…You don’t need (BitPay) to reject your transactions when you can verify them yourselves for free,”

Angela Merkel has backed Emmanuel Macron’s call to put the fires in the Amazon on the agenda at this weekend’s G7 summit, after the French president said the situation amounted to an international crisis.

Steffen Seibert, a spokesman for the German chancellor, told journalists in Berlin on Friday: “The extent of the fires in the Amazon area is shocking and threatening, not only for Brazil and the other affected countries, but also for the whole world.

Is BitShares poised to take advantage of this event being at the top of the G7 Agenda....THIS WEEKEND --  24TH AUGUST 2019

Suppose a group of celebrities wanted to donate a $1 million to pay for the leasing costs of water carrying air tankers
and remain "somewhat" anonymous by donating via BTC and .....BITPAY said, NO!! 

Could BitShares come to the rescue..?

            Firefighting Air Tankers     --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2sqMDnB_P0

Suppose 10,000 people were so upset with what is happening and they wanted to donate $100 each right NOW via crypto currency and not have to be bothered with all of the KYC hassle?

Is BitShares positioned to construct the global NETWORK EFFECT it obviously needs...and benefit from a BLACK SWAN?

There certain kinds of publicity that NO MONEY CAN BUY....

BTS supporters, workers, gateways investors, developers..help the world and help yourselves...

Under ordinary circumstances there maybe some reticence to trust a cryptocurrency ...but now urgency will motivate skeptics to give BTS a deeper and more fair look...

The G7 meeting is in France...(Does BBF have Euro contacts?) there will be lots of media attention and groups gathered there..72 HOURS !

Can maybe the BBF, as the ONLY LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE of BITSHARES, reach out to Amazon Watch and other organizations and offer to be an alternative to BitPay.?   
Show them why decentralization is a solution

Amazon Watch is a nonprofit organization[1] Founded in 1996, and based in Oakland, California, it works to protect the rainforest and advance the rights of indigenous peoples in the Amazon Basin.

{this webpage.. needs to be updated to reflect the new MCR = 1.5 ...not 1.75}

Speaking of being prepared...

I wish a link existed to a 5 minute Youtube or Vimeo or Dtube video....showing how to sign up with BTS with a webwallet
  &..how to buy some BTS and how to produce a (MPA) smartcoin for any fiat currency  e.g..bitREAL (Brazilian currency)...etc.

Translated into all the major languages..&. plaster all over social media...during this weekend's  G7 summit

   The lungs of the planet....produces 20% of earth's oxygen

The Amazon rainforest lies in nine South American countries: Peru, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana, Bolivia, Suriname and French Guiana//
The Amazon rainforest contains approximately 10 percent of all animal species on Earth and 20 percent of the world's birds.
Thousands of insects live within the borders of the Amazon as do larger mammals and reptiles, such as jaguars, anacondas and cougars.. 
{And so many more yet to be discovered and catalogued}.... To quote some wise person,

General Discussion / Re: why not borrowing?

in your eyes anytime the market is in down trend and we shouldn't do anything until the up trend come.

some CEXs has adopted CNY as base currency but suffered the shortage of bitCNY and finally unlisted it.

currently the key task is to guarantee the bitCNY supply.

No, that is your claim.Its a reason why some people don't borrow currently.I'm  fully in stablecoin and observing some bigger players who do borrow i also saw they exchanged part of their debt to stablecoins.

I agree that main focus should be now to provide supply of stable coins but we have also to accept that current stable coins can be mainly only used to buy directly BTS.
First goal should be to make stable coins more attractiv to be able to buy other major coins anytime at market prices and giving holders of stable coins the possibility to use it on diffrent exchanges with small spread in prices.

Frankly ..I don't put too much weight behind TA (technical analysis)...because at then end of the day..it's all a reflection of mass psychology... that's why $billions are spent on advertising every day..

how else does one explain the valuation of Dogecoin(#29) while BTS is (#51).... or CryptoKitties..

I think social, economic, financial and politcal events will impact price more than anything else...

You never know what kind of motivation will move markets...

 https://bitcoinist.com/how-the-mega-rich-buy-their-bitcoin

https://bitcoinist.com/bitcoin-exchange-site-traffic-may-coinbase-binance/


1.Leverage via stablecoins which makes BTS more volatile.It also means that BTS will rise way quicker in an uptrend than dodgecoin .
2.Way better marketing and adoption of dodgecoin.For me it currently seems bitshares oversleept marketing and adoption compared to other coins which it needs now to catch up quickly.

A good refference point is DAI.
How does it come that DAI is already listed everywhere where bitshares or its stablecoins try to get implemented?

Since you don't care about major TA signals what event is bitshares going to produce in next 30 days which in your opinion will impact the price more than major trends ?
I'm asking cause i do also belive that some events are stronger than market trends.

https://kryptografen.com/news/bitcoins-reported-market-dominance-is-approaching-70-but-in-reality-it-is-above-90/

Bitcoin’s reported market dominance is approaching 70%, but in reality it is above 90%

What does BitShares need most right now..?

The answer is clear in the excerpt of this article.

(Although I don't agree with every point the author makes because he doesn't seem to consider e.g.>

https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/03/25/bitcoin-blockchain-costs-approx-7-million-a-day-to-stay-secure/
and what if it were to scale to handle consumer payments?)

[EXCERPT..]

Still, history has shown us that network effects often trump specialisation. General platforms with wide adoption might be used for “everything”, like the internet. Nowhere are the network effects stronger than for money, where liquidity is everything.

Every day bitcoin stays ahead, it becomes less likely that any other cryptocurrency can compete as a money. That is important to understand not only for investors and those building out payment infrastructure, but also those building out solutions leveraging the security of a public blockchain. The value of bitcoin [as] is what makes its blockchain the most secure and makes users take good care of their private keys.

Obviously a black swan event can have the network effect needed

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: [Worker] Integration of BTS with Wirex
« Last post by ioBanker on Today at 02:28:56 am »
This has to be discussed with Wirex, and the integration for this from their side is not complex.
You may have missed that the real thing here is the legal paper work for being compliant with credit card networks!
It surely not about the technicalities of integrating bitshares.

Also, if you can convince their lawyers that bitAssets are not securities, then that can be done right afterwards.

Before trying to convince their lawyers; we have to design the bitAssets to not get classified as a security.

I suggest to have discussions about the current design and mechanism of profits of the bitAssets then to study how can bitAssets pass the howey test initially before starting promoting bitAssets in a common enterprise that facilitates cards transactions.

Stakeholder Proposals / Re: Proxy: dls.cipher
« Last post by Digital Lucifer on August 23, 2019, 06:18:30 pm »
I've given my vote of support to terradacs-bp witness (Account ID: 1.2.1614107 - current status: Backup)

Reason is not activity or technical knowledge behind. BEOS was launched in April 2019 and collected through their rain/mana and snow falls a lot of BTS with ability to vote with it. In the tough times where Consensus can't find agreement on half of the workers or how it should operate, they haven't abused that power and they showed support to many around here.

Since, that was their free will, based on fairness showed until now and support to the network, I'm setting example to show that support back.

If terradacs-bp proves to be reliable block producer, respect the requirements on price feeds and has healthy production of blocks - its a benefit to the network. If not, vote will be removed.

I would be requesting that someone technical open the thread and does BP updates here publicly on forum, as any other BP does. Expressing your opinion is important, no matter what is your opinion.

I have removed my support from BTSPP Mobile Wallet worker ( ID: 1.14.198 ), until team provides requested details for more transparency.

I have restored my vote back for BTSPP Mobile Wallet worker ( ID: 1.14.198 ). Despite the things that i personally dislike in the process, worker has no definitions/rules on market fee sharing and despite that - they do/did deliver what is/was promised.

10. How to manually verify results?

Provably fair algorithm:
1) Server generates random seed
2) Server seed is hashed and sent to the player. Can be seen in Menu - Provably fair
3) Player will send its own seed. Seed can be entered manually in Menu - Provably fair
4) Two seeds are hashed together with sha256
5) Output is used as seed in Mersenne Twister RNG
6) Deck is generated with 4 packs of cards
7) Deck is shuffled using Fisher–Yates algorithm, with RNG provided in step 5

For example let's pick server and client seeds
server seed: 85728A263F0639D368DF48852D54A8F767512500D62E111EDAF972906A414FF80643A5FF7B3A8E3F9129DB1DA261FAC41C7431F74F099654301F57F497E8F1FE
client seed: f192685b5b26c72a92a833830947e5cac3383d5aa5b5210d2782f4fb51ba00bc7e5ce1b190c24013
Using these values
server seed hash would be 6A66A88382FAA06BB2EBCF2AA69EDF76596197D92C899D86A144990890B96EC8
client and server seed hashed together: ccfdcb55b4369d121854f77fbe8104e03a5a5611decd25afbdb88b02328a5a32
RNG seed: [3439184725, 3023478034, 408221567, 3196126432, 978998801, 3737986479, 3182988034, 847927858] (3439184725dec = 0xCCFDCB55hex and so on...)
First N random values produced by RNG: [1139799984, 4122921141, 3138460245, 3260841105, 2634829831, 1147546524, 4115959087, ...]

Using same logic on the game deck you can verify that server cannot alter the game output
