The best way to predict the future is to create it

Hello, I am a cofounder and CEO of Bitsapphire, a crypto startup development lab/shop. I intend this blog to be a place to share my thoughts as I am moving into a more heavy R&D position at our team.

I expect 2015 to be a fascinating year for everybody at our team. We are passing from our forming stage to the problem storming stage. This is always one of the most exciting times for any organisation. I couldn't be happier with were we’re headed!

how do you design your future

Two of our major project in 2014 have been Coinality.io and the start of Peertracks.com. The 1438 BTC crowdfunding period for Bitshares Music was truly incredible for us.

2015 awaits us with our own and radically different crypto token wallet, starting with full Bitshares support, with plans to integrate with several exchanges soon. We are also working on a layered approach to the “Internet of Money”. Several technologies which have been developed or are in development need to be combined to make this a reality, and we will be only setting the stage for this enormous project. We will need all the help and collaboration we can get from the different projects and communities currently working in their own little silos.

The world we are preparing for

We believe these three pillars to be the future of the internet and computing as a whole and we are doing everything to align ourselves and be the people who create this future.

The three pillars are:

  1. Our value path finding “Internet of Money” (IoM), which will be a protocol rather than a DAC as it is understood today.
  2. A fork or re-implementation of a Content Centric Networking solution such as CCNx or Maidsafe.
  3. Using Flow Based Programming (FBP) throughout all our products and solutions. Other projects such as the Fractalide browser have already started on very similar work.

FBP will get a boost from the need for a computing and networking paradigm shift from CCN. Both approaches are practically made for one another. In CCN packets of data are encrypted and transported rather than channels (TCP/IP), the same applies to FBP where data packets are sent between concurrently running “black boxes” each doing only one specific computational task. We expect orders of magnitude of both computing and data speed improvements to happen once both new approaches catch on.

CCN and FBP will create a new paradigm of how computing and networking will function. Everything connected to the internet will be one continuous storage and computing “cloud”. Everything will function the same way, both on the micro-scale within a single machine as well as between machines.

IoM will make CCN possible in the first place. Together they will have a positive feedback loop, spreading both technologies faster than ever imagined.

CCN will be to the IoM the equivalent of what oil and commodities are to the USD.
