BAT Community Weekly Update: 09/14/2018 to 09/20/2018 — Partnership announcement with Civic, official BAT/Brave meetup with Brendan Eich in San Francisco, Brave to be an official sponsor of ETHSanFrancisco, Brave featured in PopularScience tweet to 1.26M followers
Welcome to this week's BAT Community Update! Big thanks to u/MurphD for his excellent contributions! BLOG: “Civic to Offer Secure Identity Verification Services on the Brave Publisher Platform” Civic, the global digital identity leader, and Brave, an innovative privacy browser combined with a blockchain-based digital advertising platform, will collaborate to provide Civic’s identity verification services to Brave’s verified publishers. Publishers will have the option to use Civic identity verification and other Know Your Customer (KYC) services in order to securely collect the Basic Attention Tokens (BATs) earned via the Brave browser and the BAT platform. There are currently over 21,000 Brave-verified publishers, and 4 million monthly active users of the Brave browser. Brave users can opt to anonymously and automatically reward publisher content by donating BATs through the integrated Brave Payments system in the browser. In the future, publishers who provide their own Ethereum wallets to receive BAT payments will have the option to use Civic Reusable KYC to verify identity and ensure authenticity. Publishers will benefit from convenient, secure, and private identity verification through the Civic app. https://brave.com/brave-civic-partnership/
October 5th - 7th: BAT & Brave will be officially sponsoring ETHSanFrancisco — We will have a booth + development teams participating in the hackathon Come meet Jennie, Chris and Luke from the BAT Team + other Brave team members! https://ethsanfrancisco.com/
September 21st: Presentation + Q&A with Brian Bondy, co-founder & CTO of Brave at the Bitcoin Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina Brian R. Bondy @brianbondy Brian R. Bondy Retweeted manuel beaudroit I'll be doing a presentation and Q&A on @brave and @AttentionToken at the Bitcoin Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Please join me on Friday while there's still space. 7:24 PM - 19 Sep 2018 https://twitter.com/brianbondy/status/1042600367182241793
Medium article from fellow BAT Community member, Daniel Colin James: “The Attention Revolution: Your next browser will pay you” You’re about to witness a movement that will make the shift from desktop to mobile look boring. Google and Facebook amass staggering amounts of money by harvesting your data and charging advertisers for your attention, but that’s going to change very soon. The power is about to shift from the tech giants of Silicon Valley to the foot soldiers of the internet: me and you. https://hackernoon.com/the-attention-revolution-your-next-browser-will-pay-you-b8b12399c3f7

Not a tweet: Brendan posts on Hacker News how each user could potentially earn in just two years I would not be surprised if our users can make $70/year as we bring the system up in 2019 -- when ad deals will be harder to come by and we'll subsidize revenue from BAT's User Growth Pool -- and climb by 2020 to above .7 * 320 or $224 net user revenue per year. See the full comment here: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18011884 Brian R. Bondy @brianbondy Tor support coming to a Brave Core Dev channel update soon. @anthonnytseng just landed the Tor feature. 25 commits, 3k+ lines. Great work! Sep 14, 2018 Over 21,000 publishers! BrendanEich ✔@BrendanEich We are paying over 21,000 publishers now. 10:06 PM - Sep 14, 2018 Eljuno of BAT Indonesia posts amazing pictures of their local Meetup!

I could not imagine a more exciting way to have spent the last couple of years than alongside this great team of visionaries and engineers. 2:06 PM - Sep 19, 2018 Brave lacks a communication channel between the author and browser user… For now. :) Hello @bobpoekert Replying to @BrendanEich @brave but what it doesn't have (and what makes patreon different from flattr) is a special communication channel between the author and the consumer. people give money to patreon because they feel a personal connection to the author & patreon optimizes for that BrendanEich @BrendanEich We are working on that -- has to support 'nyms of course, and be opt-in for anonymity by default. 11:52 PM - Sep 19, 2018 Conlan Rios @conlan @BrendanEich random shower thought: would be cool if users could share domain(s) that they've pinned with their active monthly % allocation. The digital equivalent of a bumper sticking saying "I'm a proud supporter of radio station/newspape affiliation X". BrendanEich @BrendanEich Yes, this and sharing bravestats (the colored numbers of blocked/upgraded on new tab page) are great ideas. Putting into mix with Product folks. 7:17 PM - Sep 18, 2018
BAT/Brave in the News:
As Brave Gears Up to Weaponize Privacy, Google Becomes Its Primary Target Representatives of Brave, the Open Rights Group and University College London filed simultaneous complaints with Data Protection Authorities (DPA) in the U.K. and Ireland under GDPR rules. The concerned parties are seeking a pan-European investigation into the practices of just about every ad-tech company—Google, in particular—in a challenge that will have far-reaching implications for the media business if successful. https://www.adweek.com/programmatic/as-brave-gears-up-to-weaponize-privacy-google-becomes-its-primary-target/
Popular Science Features Brave in the article “Ditch your phone's built-in web browser for these seven alternatives” We do a lot of our web browsing through our phones: More than half of site visits originate with mobile devices. Android and iOS phones both come with default browsers made by the platform's developers. On Android, Google Chrome takes pride of place, while iPhones and iPads rely on pre-installed versions of Apple's Safari. However, these are far from your only choices. Just like your computer, your phone offers a variety of options to help you navigate the internet. We collected seven feature-packed web browsers that protect your privacy, reduce your data use, boost your speed, and more. https://www.popsci.com/alternative-phone-browsers
News You Should Know:
Apple moves to thwart Facebook tracking Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in what’s becoming an escalating privacy arms race. New protections in Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox browsers aim to prevent companies from turning “cookie” data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites. https://mashable.com/article/apple-safari-browser-block-facebook-cookies/
Uninformed Consent Technology has advanced far beyond the browser cookies and retargeting that allow ads to follow us around the internet. Smartphones now track our physical location and proximity to other people — and, as researchers recently discovered, can even do so when we turn off location services. We can disable the tracking on our web browsers, but our digital fingerprints can still be connected across devices, enabling our identities to be sleuthed out. Home assistants like Alexa listen to our conversations and, when activated, record what we’re saying. A growing range of everyday things — from Barbie dolls to medical devices — connect to the internet and transmit information about our movements, our behavior, our preferences, and even our health. A dominant web business model today is to amass as much data on individuals as possible and then use it or sell it — to target or persuade, reward or penalize. The internet has become a surveillance economy. https://hbr.org/cover-story/2018/09/uninformed-consent
Daniel Colin James posts a great series of tweets about Brave! Daniel Colin James @dcwj Retweet if you’ve ever experienced this. Like if you never want to experience this again. Read this thread if you want to learn how the internet is fundamentally broken, how you’ll never have to see a terrible ad ever again, and how your next browser will pay you.

#namecoin-meeting notes, 2016 08 21 # Present: Jeremy Jonas Brandon Midnightmagic Pigeons Joseph Namecoin Core The wallet name operation bug in Brandon's name tab PR has been isolated by Jeremy. Appears to be a bug in upstream Bitcoin Core (or perhaps Namecoin Core master branch) that has been fixed. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/67#issuecomment-231316792 Whit Jackson submitted a documentation PR for building on OS X. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/97 If anyone can test, please do so! Jonas will test this. Jeremy noticed that Travis CI accidentally flagged our repo as "potential abuse detected". Jeremy contacted Travis CI support and got our account whitelisted. Jonas notices that the Travis CI builds for our 0.13 branch are failing at the moment. Jeremy suggests filing a GitHub issue. Jeremy asked Jonas to submit a PR for Gitian builds for OS X. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/issues/38#issuecomment-236101580 DrHaribo of BitMinter requested that getblocktemplate be re-added to Namecoin Core. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/issues/98 Jeremy points out that since nVersion=4 blocks are nearing the lock-in point, we should deal with this sooner rather than later so that BitMinter doesn't get kicked off the network. Brandon asked on GitHub about how wallet unlocking should be done with the name tab GUI. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/67#issuecomment-240852324 Upon discussion, Brandon currently plans to try using the raw transaction API for this. Daniel submitted a PR to temporarily disable the low-S standardness check. This should improve confirmation times for the old 0.3.80 clients. The check will be restored after AAA activates. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/pull/100 Test reports would be great. Jeremy points out that this needs to be done before nVersion=4 blocks are locked in. Jeremy wonders whether we should cancel plans to release 0.12 as stable, and focus on 0.13 branch. Tentative plan: keep maintaining 0.12 until Bitcoin Core releases v0.13.0; backport the name tab to whatever stable branch exists at the time that it's merged to master. SPV Jeremy's initial PR for Namecoin support has been merged to libdohj. https://github.com/dogecoin/libdohj/pull/18 Jeremy still needs to rebase the bitcoinj-addons code based on the libdohj changes made during review, and then submit a pull request. In the meantime, Jeremy's latest bitcoinj-addons and libdohj code is posted. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?p=16788#p16788 Someone please test it? Jeremy asks if he should post a link on Reddit. Jonas says yes. Jeremy will do so. ncdns Jeremy asked about the old fork of a Conformal library (see previous meeting); Hugo doesn't recall details but thinks it had to do with pre-Namecoin-Core not following spec properly. Hugo would be happy to accept a PR to make it use the current Conformal libs. https://github.com/hlandau/ncdns/issues/12#issue-163964219 Jeremy pointed out that sometime in the future we should fix the Extended Key Usage Critical flag on the dehydrated cert template. Go's standard library doesn't have a built-in way of setting that flag, which is why it's not in the first draft. Jeremy and Ryan can't think of any plausible attacks where it matters. Jeremy suggests a 1.0 BTC bounty for an ncdns NSIS installer. Possibly funded 50/50 by NMDF and a fundraiser. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2566 Mining Cassini noticed that BTCC and ViaBTC have started mining Namecoin. https://forum.namecoin.org/viewtopic.php?p=16703#p16703 This is good news for mining diversity. F2Pool's share of Namecoin blocks is down to circa 43% as of July 26, 2016. Public Relations Cassini represented us at GETD#4 in Berlin July 22-23. Jeremy mentions that we should think about translation workflow. https://github.com/namecoin/meta/issues/35 Jeremy notes that Bitcoin Core is using Transifex. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin-core/blob/mastedoc/translation_process.md Jeremy says that whatever works for Bitcoin Core, should probably work for us. Midnightmagic concurs. Joseph believes that Armory (post-ATI) is trying Transifex. Brandon asks what the pricing looks like for Transifex. Joseph believes it's gratis for open-source projects. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia confirms this. Jeremy wonders what safeguards are in place on Transifex to reduce risk of malicious translations. Joseph isn't sure. Jeremy points out that the way we organize the list of exchanges doesn't make sense for decentralized exchanges like Bitsquare. https://github.com/namecoin/namecoin.org/issues/70 Jeremy suggests listing decentralized exchanges at the top of the list. Jeremy notes that this might annoy the centralized exchanges who pay us for placement, but that this doesn't bother him at all. Midnightmagic concurs. Pigeons mentions that he's seen an increase in Namecoin offers on Bitsquare recently. Jeremy will have a table at the OU CS welcome party on Sept. 9. Let's try to recruit some developers! Brandon asks what the status is of the students from last year. Jeremy is sad to report that the SPV student and the UX student from last year are not participating this semester. Pigeons says a "Namecoin vs Blockstack" FAQ entry would be helpful. Jeremy will work on it. Midnightmagic asks if a meetingbot would be welcome. Jeremy says yes. Midnightmagic will look at setting one up. Funding Jeremy has filed a complaint with Tip4Commit about their usage of CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. https://github.com/tip4commit/tip4commit/issues/300 Tip4Commit has not responded after 25 days. BountySource balance: $5/month from 1 recurring supporter Total funds available: $304 USD Pigeons suggests looking into Patreon. Jeremy notes that they have CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia says they take a 5% commision, which is half of BountySource's 10%. Jeremy notes that some free software projects use them currently. https://www.reddit.com/linux/comments/33dp6n/should_open_source_projects_use_patreonkickstartecqkrlkf Jeremy will look into this in more detail later. NMDF incoming funds: 0 mBTC received since 2016 07 03 0 NMC received since 2016 07 03 Pigeons suggests looking into Flattr. Jeremy notes that they have CloudFlare CAPTCHAs. Jeremy notes that Wikipedia says they take a 10% fee (same as BountySource). Jeremy will look into this in more detail later.
Note: I made a typo in the title of this post on Reddit; the quoted date of the meeting is correct. (I can't see a way to edit the title of a Reddit post.)
The latest release of the F-Droid Repository Client, version 0.50, is now available. You can download it from the home page or, if you already have an earlier version installed, just update. Main changes since 0.46:
New basic app sharing functionality.
Handle f-droid.org web repo as well as market:// app uris.
Search by just typing on main screen and search results screen.
Flattr and Bitcoin donation methods added.
Noticeable speedups when returning from installs and uninstalls.
Add back to home buttons to the ActionBar.
The client will no longer recommend versions newer than the current or incompatible with the device.
Switched to using standard Android locations for cached files rather than the .fdroid directory on the SD card.
Fix for crash at boot time where the SD card was slow to initialise (bug introduced in 0.46)
Could masternodes make recurring payments possible?
I just wanted to find an old comment I made here and I discovered after much searching that the easiest way was to install the Reddit Enhancement Suite. Eventually I ended up looking at the contribution methods, which currently are limited to:
Bitcoin (via BitPay)
The observant reader may notice an unfortunate omission :-) This got me thinking. I resent using PayPal for services, but often it is the only one on offer. And Bitcoin can't compete because it has no means of making recurring payments without a centralised (read: you don't hold the keys) service. Dash masternodes have been shown to offer more advanced transaction types than Bitcoin, eg InstantX. Would it be feasible to use masternodes to facilitate recurring payments in any way? Is anything in Evolution likely to help with this? (I'm pretty new here and I watched the Evolution preview video a while back, but that's all I know about it.)
Congratulations. Would you like me to give you some gold? [kiWi good]
I would like to give you reddit gold since you make such helpful contributions, and/or spread good will. However I need to know the best (or a new) method of achieving our transaction. I think I still have access to a New Zealand bank account, and would prefer to use a debit card to a credit card if I have to. However I am concerned that our transaction will require private information to be posted in an inappropriate manner. You would be an awesome help if you know if using a service like bitcoin or flattr will better protect us? You also could recommend some easy way of remembering to use encryption (This Connection is Untrusted); like the Tor Browser Bundle that will really work; if you use an alternative to PayPal; donate to Wikipedia yadda yadda? My IP address appears to be: 22.214.171.124 ...though my bandwidth appears to have halved, and reddit can freeze a window. If we should establish a connection, please specify how we will help contribute GOLD and/or spread GOOD? p.s. does the Security Warning about "encrypted page with unencrypted info", using https://pay.reddit.com/ mean anything? edits: links as I find them, my current IP edits2: sorry about the petition link for US, I'm trying to remember the name of the page with all the privacy services?
Subscription payments are very important. The lightning network is going to require a fair bit of cash being held in hot wallets. Does bitcoin have to be in a hot wallet for subscription payments to happen? I'd imagine so since the transactions need to be signed. Perhaps you could sign future payments, when you subscribe, but you'd need to have sufficient funds to cover all those future payments in order to do so (unless I am mistaken). Flattr have (some time ago) stopped accepting Bitcoin, likely because it doesn't support recurring payments. Most services are paid for by subscription. Like I say, lightning network is going to have a similar requirement; funds being available in a hot wallet to be signed programmatically (I should state I'm no expert on lightning network, this is my understanding). Stripe want to be able to support subscriptions, but say they can't: https://support.stripe.com/questions/can-i-pay-subscriptions-in-bitcoin-with-stripe BitPay (Ref: http://www.coindesk.com/paydici-recurring-bitcoin-billing-merchants/) and Coinbase (Ref: https://developers.coinbase.com/docs/merchants/recurring-payments) allow you to setup recurring payments from their custodial wallets. If custodial wallets are already building this functionality into their platforms, I know I for one would certainly prefer it was baked into the bitcoin protocol. One idea I have around this is that you have a "hot wallet" of sorts, which you've authorized to send upto a specific amount of funds to specific bitcoin addresses offline. And if you want to change that instruction set, amending those instructions requires some offline action. We could then push for something similar to the direct debit guarantee in the UK whereby if additional funds are sent to a payee they will arrange their safe return without complaint. I understand that in the custodial environment banks provide, ensuring companies do do this is easier. However, it is not that easy to be authorized yourselves as a valid direct debit recipient, and subsequently many businesses choose to process them through a third party such as GoCardless. Perhaps businesses would similarly involve a third party. I think Recurly is a similar offering stateside (that exists for similar reasons?). BIP 70 includes ideas for how bitcoin could handle recurring payments. I haven't read it. https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/blob/mastebip-0070.mediawiki I've also seen while reading this that, stateside, there's really nothing stopping people using Paydici (albeit it's bitcoin support is built on top of the aforementioned support in Bitpay). Do you know of any wallet developers or others working on bringing this native to bitcoin wallets? Let's not build a future where we're reliant on a new set of intermediaries, unless it's truly necessary (surely not!).
Because he ✓ had no other alternative ✓ engaged as a journalist / with a journalist to be careful of how what was released, and ✓ provided an important net overall benefit to the world, I think he should be protected, and we should have ways of protecting people like him. Because we can try to design perfect systems of government, and they will never be perfect, and when they fail, then the whistleblower may be all that saves society.
Yes, I more or less had it nailed down when it comes to the growth curve. I didn't get it completely right --- 25 years ago I was predicting Id be asked to do an AMA on reddit next wek, but it turned out to be this week. Well, we all make mistakes.
I think it is up to us. I'm not guessing, I'm hoping. Yes, I can imagine that all to easily. If ordinary web users are not sufficiently aware of threats and get involved and if necessary take to the streets like for SOPA and PIPA and ACTA. On balance? I am optimistic.
I would suggest to them the DRM question is not that simplistic. People want to watch big movies. DRM is a pain in many ways, but if you have used Netflix or bought a DVD or a bluray, then DRM is part of your life. I agree DRM is a pain in many ways, and should only be used for very "high value" streams. I also would point out that Copyright, DMCA aand CFAA in the US are seriously broken, and need fixing separate from the DRM question. Actually I would get involved with a very long complicated discussion, as I have already with many people. Not sure we have space here. Other points include the the browsers have putt DRM in -- they have to to keep market share -- irrelevant of whether the HTML specs make the connection to the web more standard.
My default browser at the moment is Firefox. I also use Safari, Opera and Chrome each a reasonable amount. Firefox has the Tabulator plugin which does neat things with linked data. If I am running a latest version of that (I check it straight out of github) which can be unstable, I'll use one of the others for things which need to be stable. Joe Presbrey ported the plugin to Chrome too BTW
Complicated question. I am not a great expert on them. Simple answers include of course that illegal things are crimes on or off the web. But anonymity is tricky. We have a right to be anonymous as a whistle-blower or under an oppressive regime but not when we are bullying someone? How can we build technical/social/judicial systems for determining which right is more important in any given case? Relates to tor...
I got a M6800 evaluation kit in 1976, and built a bunch of 3U high cards, put them in a rack with a car battery in the bottom of the crate as UPS. All hand-soldered on veroboard, and programmed in hex. 7E XX XX was a long jump, and 20 XX a relative jump IIRC. The display was an old TV and some logic and a bunch of discarded calculator buttons lovingly relabeled with transfer letters. Those were the days...
Robert didn't invent it. I invented it by myself, and coded it up on a NeXT, but Robert was the first convert to it, and a massive supporter. He got resources together at CERN, helped find students, gave talks. He also later wrote some code for a Mac browser called "Samba". He also put a lot of energy into persuading the CERN directorate that CERN should declare that it would not charge royalties for the WWW, which it did April 1993.
No, not really. The web is a -- primarily neutral -- tool for humanity. When you look at humanity you see the good and the bad, the wonderful and the awful. A powerful tool can be used for good or ill. Things which are really bad are illegal on the web as they are off it. On balance, communication is good think I think: much of the badness comes from misunderstanding.
I think that is a really good question. I don't have the answer off the top of my head. Also think when your vision can be completely surrounded with pixels so small you can't see them, a very powerful interface -- how cna we use that -- and to be creative together, not just watch? Inter-creativity I called it early on. Still don't have it.
I think that it is important to have lots of different ways getting money to creative people on the net. So if we can have micropayment user interfaces which make it easy for me to pay people for stuff they write, play, perform, etc, in small amounts, then I hope that could be a way allowing people to actually make a serious business out of it. Flattr I found an interesting move in that direction.
I think that some monitoring of the net by government agencies is going to be needed to fight crime. We need to invent a new system of checks and balances with unprecedented power to be able to investigate and hold the agencies which do it accountable to the public.
Funny - I don't see how a bill of rights (like the right to connect with whoever you want to) centralizes power. I think is lays the basis for steering laws, and governments are rather centralized things, but rights constrain governments for the benefit of individuals.
Actually it was a lot of cheek (which he has a lot of) for Silvano to suggest that was the first picture on the web. There is no evidence to that effect, apart from that he has got away with it so far. The original NeXT browser would allow you to link HTML files to all kinds of things, movies, images, sounds. (Cool machine, the NeXT) . So people may very early on have put all kinds of things up. I tended to use HTML with talks, with links to diagrams as (typically) postscript. Les Horribles Cernettes were a band where Silvano played and did AV, and the girls in question sang. Silvano is and was a very creative individual in many ways, music, movies, code. etc... and a great spirit (whether or not it really was the first photo!)
Well, what do you think? Crowdsource a bill of rights at the very high level -- values level -- globally, non-nationally, in the first half of this year, and then in the second half of the year in each country make a list of the changes to the national system which will be necessary to implement it? That is plan A I think. See webwewant.org
That show was a lot of fun. Danny Boyle is really nice, working with 15,000 other volunteers was amazing, also being able to be in the stadium and meet other people backstage. Like a massive amateur musical. Just pulled together at the last minute. And I liked it that it was poking fun on the weather and not skipping the downsides of things like the industrial evolution, not all upbeat.
Is political innovation a thing, and is it different from social innovation?
I'm not sure how to define political innovation, and I bet some of you have know about a more appropriate label - and I want to hear your thoughts on this. I'm asking, because I really like social innovation as a way to describe projects that organize themselves in a cooperate-like way, with a not-for-profit logic aiming to create social change. This vague definition is probably not the best, but that's not what I wish to discuss. What I do wish to talk about, is what about the more political /radical innovations, like ThePirateBay.org? Or the political dimension of Bitcoin or Silkroad, both with a sort of libertarian dimension /movement? I'm talking about the projects, that's political in it's aim, but it's still a specific new technological-ish innovation. Flattr is another examble, I guess. Or planka.nu, a swedish organization "encouraging people to fare-dodge in the public transport, aiding its members in paying penalty fares through the insurance fund p-kassan". What do you guys think, are they a part of the 'social innovation' label, or is it something else? It's something I've been thinking of a lot, because I'm working on a project, that I'm unsure what to label - is it Social Innovation, is it Political Innovation (if that's a thing) or is it something else. Let me know what you think!
