Google Alternatives huge list restore your privacy

This guide aims to be the most exhaustive resource available for documenting alternatives to Google products.
With growing concerns over online privacy and securing personal data, more people than ever are considering alternatives to Google products.
After all, Google’s business model essentially revolves around data collection and advertisements, both of which infringe on your privacy. More data means better (targeted) ads and more revenue. The company pulled in over $116 billion in ad revenue last year alone – and that number continues to grow.
But the word is getting out. A growing number of people are seeking alternatives to Google products that respect their privacy and data.
So let’s get started.
Note: The lists below are not necessarily in rank order. Choose the best products and services based on your own unique needs.

Google search alternatives

When it comes to privacy, using Google search is not a good idea. When you use their search engine, Google is recording your IP address, search terms, user agent, and often a unique identifier, which is stored in cookies.
Here are ten alternatives to Google search:
  1. Searx – A privacy-friendly and versatile metasearch engine that’s also open source.
  2. MetaGer – An open source metasearch engine with good features, based in Germany.
  3. SwissCows – A zero-tracking private search engine based in Switzerland, hosted on secure Swiss infrastructure.
  4. Qwant – A private search engine based in France.
  5. DuckDuckGo – A private search engine based in the US.
  6. Mojeek – The only true search engine (rather than metasearch engine) that has its own crawler and index (based in the UK).
  7. YaCy – A decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer search engine.
  8. Givero – Based in Denmark, Givero offers more privacy than Google and combines search with charitable donations.
  9. Ecosia – Ecosia is based in Germany and donates a part of revenues to planting trees.
*Note: With the exception of Mojeek, all of the private search engines above are technically metasearch engines, since they source their results from other search engines, such as Bing and Google.
(Startpage is no longer recommended.)

Gmail alternatives

Gmail may be convenient and popular, but there are three major problems:
  1. Your inbox is used as a data collection tool. (Did you know Google is tracking your purchasing history from the receipts in your inbox?)
  2. Rather than seeing just emails, your email inbox is also used for ads and marketing.
  3. The contents of your inbox are being shared with Google and other random third parties.
When you remain logged in to your Gmail account, Google can easily track your activities online as you browse different websites, which may be hosting Google Analytics or Google ads (Adsense).
Here are ten alternatives to Gmail that do well in terms of privacy:
  1. Tutanota – based in Germany; very secure and private; free accounts up to 1 GB
  2. Mailfence – based in Belgium; lots of features; free accounts up to 500 MB
  3. Posteo – based in Germany; €1/mo with 14 day refund window
  4. StartMail – based in Netherlands; $5.00/mo with 7 day free trial
  5. Runbox – based in Norway; lots of storage and features; $1.66/mo with 30 day free trial
  6. Mailbox.org – based in Germany; €1/mo with 30 day free trial
  7. CounterMail – based in Sweden; $4.00/mo with 7 day free trial
  8. Kolab Now – based in Switzerland; €4.41/mo with 30 day money-back guarantee
  9. ProtonMail – based in Switzerland; free accounts up to 500 MB
  10. Thexyz – based in Canada; $1.95/mo with 30 day refund window

Chrome alternatives

Google Chrome is a popular browser, but it’s also a data collection tool – and many people are taking notice. Just a few days ago, the Washington Post asserted that “Google’s web browser has become spy software,” with 11,000 tracker cookies observed in a single week.
Here are seven alternatives for more privacy:
  1. Firefox browser – Firefox is a very customizable, open-source browser that is popular in privacy circles. There are also many different Firefox modifications and tweaks that will give you more privacy and security. (Also check out Firefox Focus, a privacy-focused version for mobile users.)
  2. Iridium – Based on open source Chromium, Iridium offers numerous privacy and security enhancements over Chrome, source code here.
  3. GNU IceCat – A fork of Firefox from the Free Software Foundation.
  4. Tor browser – A hardened and secured version of Firefox that runs on the Tor network by default. (It also does a good job against browser fingerprinting.)
  5. Ungoogled Chromium – Just as the name says, this is an open source version of Chromium that has been “ungoogled” and modified for more privacy.
  6. Brave – Brave is another Chromium-based browser that is rather popular. It blocks trackers and ads by default (except for “approved” ads that are part of the “Brave Ads” network).
  7. Waterfox – This is a fork of Firefox that is configured for more privacy by default, with Mozilla telemetry stripped out of the code.
Of course, there are other alternatives to Chrome, such as Safari (from Apple), Microsoft Internet ExploreEdge, Opera, and Vivaldi – but these also come with some privacy drawbacks.

Google Drive alternatives

If you’re looking for a secure cloud storage option, you can check out these Google Drive alternatives:
  1. Tresorit – A user-friendly cloud storage option based in Switzerland.
  2. ownCloud – An open source and self-hosted cloud platform developed in Germany.
  3. Nextcloud – Nextcloud is also an open source, self-hosted file sharing and collaboration platform, based in Germany.
  4. Sync – Based in Canada, Sync offers a secure, encrypted cloud storage solution for businesses and individuals.
  5. Syncthing – Here we have a decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer cloud storage platform.
Of course, Dropbox is another popular Google drive alternative, but it’s not the best in terms of privacy.

Google Calendar alternative

Here are some Google Calendar alternatives:
  1. Lightning Calendar is an open source calendar option developed by Mozilla, and it’s compatible with Thunderbird and Seamonkey.
  2. Etar, an open source, basic calendar option.
  3. Fruux, an open source calendar with good features and support for many operating systems.
For those wanting a combined solution for both email and calendar functionality, these providers offer that:

Google Docs / Sheets / Slides alternative

There are many solid Google Docs alternatives available. The largest offline document editing suite is, of course, Microsoft Office. As most people know, however, Microsoft is not the best company for privacy. Nonetheless, there are a few other good Google Docs alternatives:
  1. CryptPad – CryptPad is a privacy-focused alternative with strong encryption, and it’s free.
  2. Etherpad – A self-hosted collaborative online editor that’s also open source.
  3. Mailfence Documents – From the Mailfence team, this is a secure file sharing, storage, and collaboration tool.
  4. Zoho Docs – This is another good Google Docs alternative with a clean interface and good functionality, although it may not be the best for privacy.
  5. OnlyOffice – OnlyOffice feels a bit more restricted than some of the other options in terms of features.
  6. Cryptee – This is a privacy-focused platform for photo and document storage and editing. It’s open source and based in Estonia.
  7. LibreOffice (offline) – You can use LibreOffice which is free and open source.
  8. Apache OpenOffice (offline) – Another good open source office suite.

Google Photos alternative

Here are a few good Google Photos alternatives:
Shoebox was another alternative, but it closed operations in June 2019.

YouTube alternatives

Unfortunately, YouTube alternatives can really be hit or miss, with most struggling to gain popularity.
  1. Peertube
  2. DTube
  3. Bitchute
  4. invidio.us
  5. Vimeo
  6. Bit.tube
  7. Dailymotion
  8. Hooktube
Tip: Invidio.us is a great Youtube proxy that allows you to watch any Youtube video without logging in, even if the video is somehow restricted. To do this, simply replace [www.youtube.com] with [invidio.us] in the URL you want to view.

Google translate alternative

Here are a few Google translate alternatives I have come across:
  1. DeepL – DeepL is a solid Google Translate alternative that seems to give great results. Like Google Translate, DeepL allows you to post up to 5,000 characters at a time (but the pro version is unlimited). The user interface is good and there is also a built-in dictionary feature.
  2. Linguee – Linguee does not allow you to post large blocks of text like DeepL. However, Linguee will give you very accurate translations for single words or phrases, along with context examples.
  3. dict.cc – This Google Translate alternative seems to do a decent job on single-world lookups, but it also feels a bit outdated.
  4. Swisscows Translate – A good translation service supporting many languages.
If you want to translate blocks of text, check out DeepL. If you want in-depth translations for single words or phrases, then Linguee is a good choice.

Google analytics alternative

For website admins, there are many reasons to use an alternative to Google analytics. Aside from privacy concerns, there are also faster and more user-friendly alternatives that also respect your visitors’ privacy.
  1. Clicky is a great alternative to Google Analytics that truncates and anonymizes visitor IP addresses by default. It is lightweight, user-friendly, and fully compliant with GDPR regulations, while also being certified by Privacy Shield.
  2. Matomo (formerly Piwik) is an open-source analytics platform that respects the privacy of visitors by anonymizing and truncating visitor IP addresses (if enabled by the website admin). It is also certified to respect user privacy.
  3. Fathom Analytics is an open source alternative to Google Analytics that’s available on Github here. It’s minimal, fast, and lightweight.
  4. Get Insights – Another privacy-focused analytics platform, with a full analytics suite. The front-end client is open source and available here.
  5. AT Internet is a France-based analytics provider that is fully GDPR compliant, with all data stored on French servers, and a good track record going back to 1996.
Many websites host Google Analytics because they run Google Adsense campaigns. Without Google Analytics, tracking performance of these campaigns would be difficult. Nonetheless, there are still better options for privacy.

Google Maps alternative

A map alternative for PCs is OpenStreetMap.
A few Google Maps alternatives for mobile devices include:
  1. OsmAnd is a free and open-source mobile maps app for both Android and iOS (based on OpenStreetMap data).
  2. Maps (F Droid) uses OpenStreetMap data (offline).
  3. Maps.Me is another option that is free on both Android and iOS, but there is a fair amount of data collection with this alternative, as explained in their privacy policy.
  4. MapHub is also based on OpenStreeMap data and it does not collect locations or user IP addresses.
Note: Waze is not an “alternative” as it is now owned by Google.

Google Play Store alternative

Currently the best Google Play Store alternative is to use F-Droid and then go through the Yalp store. As explained on the official site, F-Droid is an installable catalog of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform.
After you have installed F-Droid, you can then download the Yalp store APK, which allows you to download apps from the Google Play Store directly as APK files.
📷The Yalp Store is a good alternative to the Google Play Store.
See the F-Droid website or the official GitHub page for more info. Other alternatives to the Google Play Store include:

Google Chrome OS alternative

Want to ditch the Chromebook and Chrome OS? Here are a few alternatives:
  1. Linux – Of course, Linux is arguably the best alternative, being a free, open-source operating system with lots of different flavors. With some adjustments, Linux Ubuntu can be run on Chromebooks.
  2. Tails – Tails is a free, privacy-focused operating system based on Linux that routes all traffic through the Tor network.
  3. QubesOS – Recommended by Snowden, free, and also open source.
Of course, the other two big operating system alternatives are Windows and Apple’s operating system for MacBooks – Mac OS. Windows, particularly Windows 10, is a very bad option for privacy. While slightly better, Apple also collects user data and has partnered with the NSA) for surveillance.

Android alternatives

The biggest alternative to Android is iOS from Apple. But we’ll skip over that for reasons already mentioned. Here are a few Android OS alternatives:
  1. LineageOS – A free and open-source operating system for phones and tablets based on Android.
  2. Ubuntu Touch – A mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system.
  3. Plasma Mobile – An open source, Linux-based operating system with active development.
  4. Sailfish OS – Another open source, Linux-based mobile OS.
  5. Replicant – A fully free Android distribution with an emphasis on freedom, privacy, and security.
  6. /e/ – This is another open source project with a focus on privacy and security.
Purism is also working on a privacy-focused mobile phone called the Librem 5. It is in production, but not yet available (estimated Q3 2019).

Google Hangouts alternatives

Here are some alternatives to Google Hangouts:
  1. Wire – A great all-around secure messenger, video, and chat app, but somewhat limited on the number of people who can chat together in a group conversation via voice or video.
  2. Signal – A good secure messenger platform from Open Whisper Systems.
  3. Telegram – A longtime secure messenger app, formerly based in Russia, now in Dubai.
  4. Riot – A privacy-focused encrypted chat service that is also open source.

Google Domains alternative

Google Domains is a domain registration service. Here are a few alternatives:
  1. Namecheap – I like Namecheap because all domain purchases now come with free WhoisGuard protection for life, which protects your contact information from third parties. Namecheap also accepts Bitcoin and offers domain registration, hosting, email, SSL certs, and a variety of other products.
  2. Njalla – Njalla is a privacy-focused domain registration service based in Nevis. They offer hosting options, too, and also accept cryptocurrency payments.
  3. OrangeWebsite – OrangeWebsite offers anonymous domain registration services and also accepts cryptocurrency payments, based in Iceland.

Other Google alternatives

Here more alternatives for various Google products:
Google forms alternativeJotForm is a free online form builder.
Google Keep alternative – Below are a few different Google Keep alternatives:
Google Fonts alternative – Many websites load Google fonts through Google APIs, but that’s not necessary. One alternative to this is to use Font Squirrel, which has a large selection of both Google and non-Google fonts which are free to download and use.
Google Voice alternativeJMP.chat (both free and paid)
G Suite alternativeZoho is probably the best option
Google Firebase alternativeKuzzle (free and open source)

Another important global change is related to Tron users who had to use TronLink, TronWallet or any other web 3 API wallet for entering BetFury. This way can still be used to sign in. We open the doors for the whole crypto world with user-friendly login by using 📧 email/pass. BetFury generates a unique address for every user to deposit funds to use all services (games, staking, etc). BetFury platform continues to provide an instant automatic Deposit/Withdrawal system.
Account

In BetFury 2.0 we have added security features related to email/pass such as change email, change pass, Two-factor authorization to provide the maximum confidence for users that playing on BetFury is secure. We did all the updates in the best manner of global leaders in crypto B2C products.
BFG token and BFG(BTC) and BFG(TRX) subtokens

https://preview.redd.it/167fkzckga551.png?width=692&format=png&auto=webp&s=8403b6542237f19fa9db501d516784731e0574d2
BFG is the unified token of BetFury platform with a max supply of 5 000 000 000. To expand potential market opportunities and improve the dividends payout we decided to fork BFG for BFG(BTC) and BFG(TRX) subtokens inside the site. Now depending on the cryptocurrency you use when placing bets, you will get BFG(BTC) and BFG(TRX) subtokens accordingly: Bet with Bitcoin - get BFG(BTC). Bet with TRON crypto (TRX, USDT, BTT) - get BFG(TRX).

Advantages of this solution

  • Coming of investors from the whole crypto world and the dividends pool growth
  • Heightened value of BFG token
  • Better earning opportunity for newcomers and old users
  • Increased interest to the project, which will simplify the BFG listing procedure
All tokens that have been mined before BetFury 2.0 update by users are saved as BFG(TRX).
Basic native BetFury game token (BFG) continues to be based on TRC-20 smart contract. It means that mining BFG(TRX)/BFG(BTC) subtokens are just a solution to start a new mining cycle on the BetFury platform.

Mining price on BetFury 2.0

BFG(TRX) In House games: start from 40 TRX/1BFG Slots games: 13.5 TRX/1BFG Increasing: for every mined 100 000 000 BFG token the price increases for +1 TRX (for In-house games) and +0,5 TRX (for slots).
BFG(BTC) In House games: start from 0.00007000 BTC/1 BFG Increasing: for every mined 100 000 000 BFG token the price increases for +0.0000001 BTC Example: 0.00007100 BTC → 0.00007200 BTC → 0.00007300 BTC → 0.00007400 BTC → 0.00007500 BTC
Slots: Start from 0.000023 BTC/1 BFG Increasing: for every mined 100 000 000 BFG token the price increases for + 0.0000005 BTC Example: 0.000023 BTC → 0.0000235 BTC → 0.000024 BTC → 0.0000245 BTC

House-edge

We have changed the house edge for Dice from 1.5% to 1.99% The reason is that it should quickly replenish the dividend pool. Also because we have a lot of different features, contests, big cashback, VIP Rank system.
Increased house edge on Dice does not affect the increasing of the mining price. In fact, the cost of mining remains the same, due to equalization of the price of mining by the BF team. We are sure that this will have a better effect on the dividend pool and on the distribution of dividends to our users.

Minimal bets

Off-chain bets solutions allow us to reduce minimum bets in every in-house game. Starting from BetFury 2.0 release in-house games will have the next min bets: 0.00000100 BTC 0.00000100 TRX 0.00000100 USDT 0.00000100 BTT Slots, Table and Live games will have their own bets allowed by the games providers. BetFury team is always trying to make better conditions related to integrated games to make it possible to play for everyone. BetFury constantly pushes partners to add more crypto gaming solutions.
BetFury staking (Mining and Dividends)

The Dividends system is one of the main and most valuable features of BetFury. The system of multicurrency drops for all BFG token holders. From now users don't need to use Tron network to receive payouts for holding BFG. In order to invite new users for mining procedures and increase the value of BFG token, we provide a new 90%-10% staking payouts model with subtokens mining of BFG(TRX) and BFG(BTC).

Advantages of renewed BetFury staking system

Here on BetFury we maximized the opportunity of earning dividends for all newcomers and old users. And from now on we expand this opportunity for every crypto user outside the Tron market. BetFury also gives the opportunity to receive BTC dividends for users, who have been with us from the first day of the platform launch. BetFury Staking solution is ideal for both new users and for existing. New users who decided to join BetFury will join to Build new world class product. There is a unique opportunity to mine BFG(BTC) tokens with the best price and receive generous dividends.
  • Stakinga feature, that means that users claim a reward from the Dividend pool by only for holding their BFG tokens on their gaming accounts. The reward is defined according to the number of tokens kept.

How does it work?

Every 24 hours, the dividend pool releases 3% of the total profit of the platform on every currency, and the amount is shared among all users who hold BFG tokens. Get profit from all the platform’s funds, regardless of whether you are staking: BFG(TRX) or BFG(BTC)!

  • 90% from BTC pool
  • 10% from each of TRX, USDT, BTT pools
By placing bets in Tron, Tether TRC-20, Bittorent (TRX, USDT, BTT) users get BFG(TRX) subtoken. Stake BFG(TRX) token to get dividends in the amount of:

ENORME ACTUALIZACIÓN DE BETFURY 2.0 - ¡La experiencia de I-Gaming que te mereces!

ENORME ACTUALIZACIÓN DE BETFURY 2.0 - ¡La experiencia de I-Gaming que te mereces!

https://preview.redd.it/84qrt64kcb451.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=81f5a075f085ab2d8c27c0d7d355feac4d064f0b
Hoy es seguro decir que BetFury 2.0 cambiará su comprensión de la industria del juego! Estamos encantados de presentaros una actualización que todos los seguidores de BetFury admirarán y a la que todos los rivales prestarán atención.
Durante seis meses, nuestro equipo ha trabajado duro para crear la mejor experiencia de juego en el espacio de TRON Dapp. A pesar de todas las ventajas, la plataforma BetFury ya se ha hecho bastante conocida entre los usuarios de TRON. Decidimos que es hora de cambiar algo y ofrecer a todo el mundo criptográfico una plataforma BetFury 2.0 actualizada.

BetFury 2.0 - Plataforma de criptojuegos sociales i-Gaming
¿Qué hace que la plataforma actualizada sea tan única?

BetFury se ha convertido en la plataforma Social i-Gaming Crypto con el primer pool de dividendos BTC en la industria del juego. El mejor entretenimiento de juego está provisto de tales ventajas: BFG Staking, sistema de acceso fácil, fondos de dividendos en BTC, TRX, USDT, BTT, más de 1000 juegos, sistema de Ranking VIP, Jackpots, Cashback hasta el 25%, soporte amistoso 24/7.

La idea principal de la actualización de BetFury 2.0 es la combinación de las características de Dapp: BetFury Staking (plataforma de ganancias multidivisa para los titulares de BFG en TRX, USDT, BTT) y acceso a la API de la web 3 (TronLink, TronWallet, etc).
Abrimos las puertas para todos con un acceso estándar y fácil de usar usando el correo electrónico/pasar o el acceso a las cuentas sociales.
Junto con la remasterización de alta gama del UI/UX general en BetFury estamos orgullosos de mostrar resultados aún mejores, significativos y más expresivos.

La siguiente característica principal - el pool de Dividendos de Bitcoin es la que todos los usuarios han estado esperando desde que Bitcoin fue añadido como moneda de juego a la plataforma. La oportunidad de apostar por los dividendos de Bitcoin con una solución minera única abre nuevas oportunidades y la adquisición de nuevos usuarios como resultado - el rápido movimiento de desarrollo, la minería rentable, el aumento del pool de Dividendos.

Cambios globales
BetFury se mueve de Tron a Bitcoin como una criptografía maestra en la plataforma. Eso significa que todas las clasificaciones internas, cálculos de apuestas, rankings, jackpots estarán en Bitcoin ahora.

¡Importante! Todos los rangos de usuarios alcanzados, las clasificaciones globales de los usuarios más importantes, y otros datos han sido recalculados de TRX a BTC después del lanzamiento de BetFury 2.0.
Todos los datos fueron transferidos correctamente sin ninguna pérdida.
Depositos y Retiros
https://preview.redd.it/08hr2cjv9b451.png?width=587&format=png&auto=webp&s=fdf48da305c393675ab86cf11a78991e4257cf20
Otro cambio global importante está relacionado con los usuarios de Tron que tuvieron que usar TronLink, TronWallet o cualquier otra cartera de la API de la web 3 para entrar en BetFury. Esta forma todavía puede ser usada para entrar.
Abrimos las puertas para todo el mundo criptográfico con un inicio de sesión fácil de usar usando 📧 email/pass. BetFury genera una dirección única para que cada usuario deposite fondos para usar todos los servicios (juegos, apuestas, etc).
La plataforma BetFury sigue proporcionando un sistema de depósito/retiro automático instantáneo.

Cuenta
Desde el principio, BetFury presenta el lugar para el seguimiento de la actividad de su cuenta como apuestas, historial de transacciones, apuesta total, herramientas de personalización. En BetFury 2.0 hemos añadido características de seguridad relacionadas con el correo electrónico/paso como el cambio de correo electrónico, el cambio de pase, la autorización de dos factores para proporcionar la máxima confianza a los usuarios de que jugar en BetFury es seguro. Hicimos todas las actualizaciones de la mejor manera de los líderes mundiales en productos criptográficos B2C.

BFG token y BFG(BTC) y BFG(TRX) subtokens
https://preview.redd.it/9yvn0srbab451.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=08b16b98169d7109ca0a7b480da02deb1c3e0e75
BFG es la ficha unificada de la plataforma BetFury con un suministro máximo de 5 000 000 000.
Para expandir las oportunidades de mercado potenciales y mejorar el pago de dividendos decidimos bifurcar BFG por los subtokens BFG(BTC) y BFG(TRX) dentro del sitio.
Ahora, dependiendo de la criptodivisa que se utilice al hacer las apuestas, obtendrás los subtokens de BFG(BTC) y BFG(TRX) en consecuencia:
Apostar con Bitcoin - obtener BFG(BTC).
Apuesta con TRON crypto (TRX, USDT, BTT) - obtén BFG(TRX).

Ventajas de esta solución
Viniendo de inversores de todo el mundo criptográfico y el crecimiento del fondo de dividendos
El valor aumentado de la ficha de BFG
Una mejor oportunidad de ganancias para los recién llegados y los antiguos usuarios
Mayor interés en el proyecto, que simplificará el procedimiento de inclusión en la lista del BFG
Todas las fichas que han sido extraídas antes de la actualización de BetFury 2.0 por los usuarios se guardan como BFG(TRX).

La ficha de juego nativa básica de BetFury (BFG) sigue basándose en el contrato inteligente TRC-20. Esto significa que la minería de los subtokens BFG(TRX)/BFG(BTC) son sólo una solución para iniciar un nuevo ciclo de minería en la plataforma BetFury.

El precio de la minería en BetFury 2.0
BFG(TRX)
Juegos de casa: a partir de 40 TRX/1BFG
Juegos de tragaperras: 13.5 TRX/1BFG
Aumentando: por cada ficha extraída de 100 000 000 BFG aumenta el precio de +1 TRX (para los juegos internos) y +0,5 TRX (para las tragaperras).

BFG(BTC)
En los juegos de casa: a partir de 0.00007000 BTC/1 BFG
Aumentando: por cada mina 100 000 000 BFG, el precio aumenta para +0.0000001 BTC
Ejemplo: 0.00007100 BTC → 0.00007200 BTC → 0.00007300 BTC → 0.00007400 BTC → 0.00007500 BTC

Ranuras:
Comienza desde 0.000023 BTC/1 BFG
Aumentando: por cada mina de 100 000 000 BFG el precio aumenta por + 0.0000005 BTC
Ejemplo: 0.000023 BTC → 0.0000235 BTC → 0.000024 BTC → 0.0000245 BTC

House-edge
Hemos cambiado el borde de la casa para los dados de 1.5% a 1.99%.
La razón es que debería reponer rápidamente el fondo de dividendos. También porque tenemos muchas características diferentes, concursos, gran devolución de dinero, sistema de rango VIP.

El aumento de la ventaja de la casa en Dados no afecta el aumento del precio de la minería. De hecho, el costo de la minería sigue siendo el mismo, debido a la igualación del precio de la minería por el equipo de BF.
Estamos seguros de que esto tendrá un mejor efecto en el fondo de dividendos y en la distribución de dividendos a nuestros usuarios.

Apuestas mínimas
Las soluciones de apuestas fuera de la cadena nos permiten reducir las apuestas mínimas en cada juego interno. A partir del lanzamiento de BetFury 2.0, los juegos internos tendrán el siguiente mínimo de apuestas:
0.00000100 BTC
0.00000100 TRX
0.00000100 USDT
0.00000100 BTT
Las tragamonedas, los juegos de mesa y en vivo tendrán sus propias apuestas permitidas por los proveedores de los juegos. El equipo de BetFury siempre está tratando de hacer mejores condiciones relacionadas con los juegos integrados para que sea posible jugar para todos. BetFury presiona constantemente a sus socios para que añadan más soluciones de juego encriptadas.

Apuestas de BetFury (Minería y Dividendos)

https://preview.redd.it/ly2x7vjwab451.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=7e61ed6946c6d85c66dce7e63f3cfb5b6235bc36
El sistema de Dividendos es una de las principales y más valiosas características de BetFury. El sistema de gotas multidivisa para todos los poseedores de fichas BFG. A partir de ahora los usuarios no necesitan usar la red de Tron para recibir pagos por tener BFG. Con el fin de invitar a nuevos usuarios para los procedimientos de minería y aumentar el valor del token BFG, proporcionamos un nuevo modelo de pagos de apuestas del 90%-10% con subtokens de minería de BFG(TRX) y BFG(BTC).

Ventajas del renovado sistema de estacas BetFury
Aquí en BetFury maximizamos la oportunidad de ganar dividendos para todos los nuevos y viejos usuarios. Y a partir de ahora ampliamos esta oportunidad para todos los usuarios de criptografía fuera del mercado de Tron. BetFury también da la oportunidad de recibir dividendos de BTC para los usuarios, que han estado con nosotros desde el primer día del lanzamiento de la plataforma.
La solución BetFury Staking es ideal tanto para nuevos usuarios como para los ya existentes. Los nuevos usuarios que decidan unirse a BetFury se unirán para construir un nuevo producto de clase mundial. Hay una oportunidad única de extraer fichas BFG(BTC) con el mejor precio y recibir generosos dividendos.

Apuesta - una característica, que significa que los usuarios reclaman una recompensa del fondo de Dividendos por sólo tener sus fichas de BFG en sus cuentas de juego. La recompensa se define según el número de fichas que se guardan.
¿Cómo funciona?
Cada 24 horas, el fondo de dividendos libera el 3% del beneficio total de la plataforma en cada moneda, y la cantidad es compartida entre todos los usuarios que tienen fichas BFG. Obtengan beneficios de todos los fondos de la plataforma, sin importar si están apostando: BFG(TRX) o BFG(BTC)!

90% del pool de BTC
10% de cada uno de los fondos de TRX, USDT, BTT

100(1.99%)0.15= 0,2985

Sistema de clasificación y rango
El sistema de Ranking VIP migra a Bitcoin, lo que significa que para estar más alto en el sistema VIP los usuarios deben hacer más apuestas en cualquier moneda pero cada apuesta se acumulará en BTC.

Stellar The Biggest Cryptocurrency since Bitcoin? 1 year later!

Special consideration and appreciation to 87Crypto for all the research and investment into most of this article, this flashback was and is very much on point perfectly.

My input and addition I believe will be the future of Stellar Lumens (XLM) and I don't think the bears can stop it.. With the works economy crashed because of the pandemic, countries are looking at making precious metal backed Cryptocurrencies.... Major banks are rushing to make the technology improvements to accommodate this change, and it is happening very rapidly..


To the world from REDDIT user 87Crypto:

Stellar The Biggest Cryptocurrency since Bitcoin?
Ok everyone, feel free to tell me I'm crazy and delusional on my idea of Stellar being the biggest Cryptocurrency since Bitcoin.

In 2014, Nasdaq launched a separate company, Nasdaq private market which partnered with a San Francisco based Blockchain startup company called Chain to test Bitcoin technology. Part of this testing included digital transfers of money and other assets securely and nearly instantaneously which is something the current system is incapable of doing so seamlessly. Additional features included the transfer of securities directly between asset managers, to serve as a secure ledger for tracking assets across divisions of a large organization, enable a next-generation mobile banking solution, create a loyalty points system for a consortium of brandsto issue digital gift cards onto a network that can support multiple wallet vendors, create automated insurance contracts, and issue central bank currencies digitally to improve the payments system in any country. In October 15th, 2017 IBM chose the Stellar Blockchain to power the process of cross-border payments. This partnership was to significantly reduce transaction costs and increase transaction speeds whilst eliminating the inefficiencies and frustrations of the current cross-border payments system. January of 2018, Former Chain president, and Goldman Sachs Managing Director of technology and Business Development became the Head of Corporate Business Development for the Newly launched digital arm of Fidelity. Now this is getting more and more obvious as to what is going on. The same group of people are involved in all these financial institutions. On September 4th, 2018 IBM Debuted Blockchain World Wire (BWW). This platform was created to not only improve the cross-border payment system but to revolutionize the entire financial system. This ecosystem allows assets to be freely transported to any region of the world without the necessity to exchange currencies prior to doing so. Blockchain world wire utilizes the Stellar native token, the Lumen, as a form of exchange, as well as gas for low transaction fees. One of the brilliant aspects of BWW is the fact that the Lumen can be converted to as many as sixty currencies and according to Jed McCaleb even stocks can be transferred within the ecosystem. These currencies vary from the current fiat system, to cryptocurrency, 1:1-dollar ratio Stable coins and central bank digital cryptocurrencies. Just six days later, on September 10, Blockchain Start up and Nasdaq partner merges with Steller’s start up named Lightyear. This merger formed Interstellar to bring Chain's enterprise products of digital asset transfers, seamless tracking of these assets, as well as their customer base to the Stellar blockchain. On the other side of the IBM / Stellar partnership, IBM was working closely with The Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) on central bank cryptocurrencies. The OMFIF is an independent think tank for central banking, economic policy, and public investment with a collective of investable assets equating to $36 trillion dollars which is equivalent to 45% of the worlds GDP. I don’t know about you but that gave me goosebumps. The magnitude of the Stellar blockchain is just unreal. We are talking about Stellar having the potential to take over not just the cross-border payments market but will also play a massive role in asset tokenization which would revolutionize Wall St. Itself. On October 13th, 2018 Stellar partnered with SEC approved Security token exchange platform Hyperion. This exchange is the first platform in north American for security tokens. This provides investors the ability to exchange digital security tokens using blockchain technology with significantly lower fees as well as more efficiently than the traditional stock market. In addition to that, Hyperion signed an MOU with Kinesis Money, a company offering a unique system solely on digital gold and silver currencies. This unique form of tokenizing gold and silver as a 1:1 allocation to those assets as a stable coin is just further proof that everything will be tokenized on the blockchain. Ok, there’s a few more things to discuss. This is what institutions are calling open banking. Open banking is a system where banks can use the open source Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to allow 3rd party developers applications around financial institutions. A partner of IBM that is leading the way of open banking is HSBC. Due to this strong relationship it is very likely they will use the Stellar Blockchain to issue digital assets. Speaking of partnerships and 3rd party developers, let's discuss yet another huge part of the puzzle that is Stellar.

On October 28th, 2018 the largest bank of the United states J.P Morgan financed a $34 billion-dollar loan to IBM for the acquisition of the world’s largest hybrid cloud provider, Red Hat. This purchase was purposely executed to become the #1 hybrid cloud provider in the world. Red hat fits the perfect description of the 3rd party required for HSBC to implement its Open banking and eventual issuance of digital currencies through the Stellar Blockchain. In case you were wondering why I made a point to mention J.P Morgan and their massive loan to IBM when I could have simply left them out, we'll circle back because it is important. On December 4th, 2018 we closed out the year with Fidelity and Nasdaq Ventures investing in cryptocurrency exchange Eris X. As Previously mentioned, Former president of blockchain start up Chain, Tom Jessup relocated to Fidelity which is a partner of Nasdaq in this cryptocurrency exchange Eris X. Tom Jessup was president of Chain during the time they partnered with Nasdaq. What I am pointing out is that all these top institutional companies are working together one way or another and it is clear as day something massive will be announced March 19th as I mentioned before. As we look back at all the moving parts, I can’t help but think that IBM and Stellar will revolutionize the stock market itself through all their partnerships directly or indirectly, more importantly due to Blockchain World Wire and its capabilities. This is truly incredible. But that's still not all just yet. J.P Morgan financing the $34 billion dollars to IBM was strategic. Well, what do you know, On February 14th of this very year, J.P Morgan launched their own US bank-backed cryptocurrency coin and as Jesse Lund, head of IBM Blockchain previously mentioned, Blockchain World Wire would allow up to 60 world currencies and even stable coins which is exactly why J. P. Morgan created their coin. All of this has led us to the Singapore Money 20/20 event of March 19th, 2019. All the pieces of the puzzle seem to be in place and I honestly can not find evidence to prove anything otherwise. Stellar has all the qualifications, attributes and partnerships to not only be one of the biggest cryptocurrencies in the world but to become the Blockchain of the financial world. Please give me your thoughts.
From: 87Crypto May, 2019

Now 1 year later :Everything is in place, all currencies are at an all time low because of the worldwide pandemic last month...
It is time, time to grow this machine!

We need a Stellar Lumens based "ATM" program that runs on Debian. Something that can be dropped into almost all "ATM" platforms. This would give instant international bank transactions from any bank to any bank. It could use Stripe or BWW directly, because of the existing Stellar Commitments, and Charge it's own processing fees set by the ATM provider.

Let's get this marketed to every ATM provider there is and push the market, this is the environment for bank integrations and will reduce ATM fees to the end user.. Even at $1 per average transaction that is an average savings of $1.50 per transaction from an average ATM... Banks will pay attention, then every user will see the message "Your transaction was proudly transferred to you with the Stellar Lumens (XLM) network, in coordination with BWW or Stripe, and" insert ATM COMPANY NAME "....This same environment would be used as the backbone of the merchant P.O.S. machines for credit card and debt transactions.
Thank you for reading..

The most cryptocurrency ever lost, was not from investments it was from inoperable or unrecoverable wallets. Stay safe my friends.

huge list of google alternatives tutorial for those people who respects their privacy

This guide aims to be the most exhaustive resource available for documenting alternatives to Google products.
With growing concerns over online privacy and securing personal data, more people than ever are considering alternatives to Google products.
After all, Google’s business model essentially revolves around data collection and advertisements, both of which infringe on your privacy. More data means better (targeted) ads and more revenue. The company pulled in over $116 billion in ad revenue last year alone – and that number continues to grow.
But the word is getting out. A growing number of people are seeking alternatives to Google products that respect their privacy and data.
So let’s get started.
Note: The lists below are not necessarily in rank order. Choose the best products and services based on your own unique needs.

Google search alternatives

When it comes to privacy, using Google search is not a good idea. When you use their search engine, Google is recording your IP address, search terms, user agent, and often a unique identifier, which is stored in cookies.
Here are ten alternatives to Google search:
  1. Searx – A privacy-friendly and versatile metasearch engine that’s also open source.
  2. MetaGer – An open source metasearch engine with good features, based in Germany.
  3. SwissCows – A zero-tracking private search engine based in Switzerland, hosted on secure Swiss infrastructure.
  4. Qwant – A private search engine based in France.
  5. DuckDuckGo – A private search engine based in the US.
  6. Mojeek – The only true search engine (rather than metasearch engine) that has its own crawler and index (based in the UK).
  7. YaCy – A decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer search engine.
  8. Givero – Based in Denmark, Givero offers more privacy than Google and combines search with charitable donations.
  9. Ecosia – Ecosia is based in Germany and donates a part of revenues to planting trees.
*Note: With the exception of Mojeek, all of the private search engines above are technically metasearch engines, since they source their results from other search engines, such as Bing and Google.
(Startpage is no longer recommended.)

Gmail alternatives

Gmail may be convenient and popular, but there are three major problems:
  1. Your inbox is used as a data collection tool. (Did you know Google is tracking your purchasing history from the receipts in your inbox?)
  2. Rather than seeing just emails, your email inbox is also used for ads and marketing.
  3. The contents of your inbox are being shared with Google and other random third parties.
When you remain logged in to your Gmail account, Google can easily track your activities online as you browse different websites, which may be hosting Google Analytics or Google ads (Adsense).
Here are ten alternatives to Gmail that do well in terms of privacy:
  1. Tutanota – based in Germany; very secure and private; free accounts up to 1 GB
  2. Mailfence – based in Belgium; lots of features; free accounts up to 500 MB
  3. Posteo – based in Germany; €1/mo with 14 day refund window
  4. StartMail – based in Netherlands; $5.00/mo with 7 day free trial
  5. Runbox – based in Norway; lots of storage and features; $1.66/mo with 30 day free trial
  6. Mailbox.org – based in Germany; €1/mo with 30 day free trial
  7. CounterMail – based in Sweden; $4.00/mo with 7 day free trial
  8. Kolab Now – based in Switzerland; €4.41/mo with 30 day money-back guarantee
  9. ProtonMail – based in Switzerland; free accounts up to 500 MB
  10. Thexyz – based in Canada; $1.95/mo with 30 day refund window

Chrome alternatives

Google Chrome is a popular browser, but it’s also a data collection tool – and many people are taking notice. Just a few days ago, the Washington Post asserted that “Google’s web browser has become spy software,” with 11,000 tracker cookies observed in a single week.
Here are seven alternatives for more privacy:
  1. Firefox browser – Firefox is a very customizable, open-source browser that is popular in privacy circles. There are also many different Firefox modifications and tweaks that will give you more privacy and security. (Also check out Firefox Focus, a privacy-focused version for mobile users.)
  2. Iridium – Based on open source Chromium, Iridium offers numerous privacy and security enhancements over Chrome, source code here.
  3. GNU IceCat – A fork of Firefox from the Free Software Foundation.
  4. Tor browser – A hardened and secured version of Firefox that runs on the Tor network by default. (It also does a good job against browser fingerprinting.)
  5. Ungoogled Chromium – Just as the name says, this is an open source version of Chromium that has been “ungoogled” and modified for more privacy.
  6. Brave – Brave is another Chromium-based browser that is rather popular. It blocks trackers and ads by default (except for “approved” ads that are part of the “Brave Ads” network).
  7. Waterfox – This is a fork of Firefox that is configured for more privacy by default, with Mozilla telemetry stripped out of the code.
Of course, there are other alternatives to Chrome, such as Safari (from Apple), Microsoft Internet ExploreEdge, Opera, and Vivaldi – but these also come with some privacy drawbacks.

Google Drive alternatives

If you’re looking for a secure cloud storage option, you can check out these Google Drive alternatives:
  1. Tresorit – A user-friendly cloud storage option based in Switzerland.
  2. ownCloud – An open source and self-hosted cloud platform developed in Germany.
  3. Nextcloud – Nextcloud is also an open source, self-hosted file sharing and collaboration platform, based in Germany.
  4. Sync – Based in Canada, Sync offers a secure, encrypted cloud storage solution for businesses and individuals.
  5. Syncthing – Here we have a decentralized, open source, peer-to-peer cloud storage platform.
Of course, Dropbox is another popular Google drive alternative, but it’s not the best in terms of privacy.

Google Calendar alternative

Here are some Google Calendar alternatives:
  1. Lightning Calendar is an open source calendar option developed by Mozilla, and it’s compatible with Thunderbird and Seamonkey.
  2. Etar, an open source, basic calendar option.
  3. Fruux, an open source calendar with good features and support for many operating systems.
For those wanting a combined solution for both email and calendar functionality, these providers offer that:

Google Docs / Sheets / Slides alternative

There are many solid Google Docs alternatives available. The largest offline document editing suite is, of course, Microsoft Office. As most people know, however, Microsoft is not the best company for privacy. Nonetheless, there are a few other good Google Docs alternatives:
  1. CryptPad – CryptPad is a privacy-focused alternative with strong encryption, and it’s free.
  2. Etherpad – A self-hosted collaborative online editor that’s also open source.
  3. Mailfence Documents – From the Mailfence team, this is a secure file sharing, storage, and collaboration tool.
  4. Zoho Docs – This is another good Google Docs alternative with a clean interface and good functionality, although it may not be the best for privacy.
  5. OnlyOffice – OnlyOffice feels a bit more restricted than some of the other options in terms of features.
  6. Cryptee – This is a privacy-focused platform for photo and document storage and editing. It’s open source and based in Estonia.
  7. LibreOffice (offline) – You can use LibreOffice which is free and open source.
  8. Apache OpenOffice (offline) – Another good open source office suite.

Google Photos alternative

Here are a few good Google Photos alternatives:
Shoebox was another alternative, but it closed operations in June 2019.

YouTube alternatives

Unfortunately, YouTube alternatives can really be hit or miss, with most struggling to gain popularity.
  1. Peertube
  2. DTube
  3. Bitchute
  4. invidio.us
  5. Vimeo
  6. Bit.tube
  7. Dailymotion
  8. Hooktube
Tip: Invidio.us is a great Youtube proxy that allows you to watch any Youtube video without logging in, even if the video is somehow restricted. To do this, simply replace [www.youtube.com] with [invidio.us] in the URL you want to view.

Google translate alternative

Here are a few Google translate alternatives I have come across:
  1. DeepL – DeepL is a solid Google Translate alternative that seems to give great results. Like Google Translate, DeepL allows you to post up to 5,000 characters at a time (but the pro version is unlimited). The user interface is good and there is also a built-in dictionary feature.
  2. Linguee – Linguee does not allow you to post large blocks of text like DeepL. However, Linguee will give you very accurate translations for single words or phrases, along with context examples.
  3. dict.cc – This Google Translate alternative seems to do a decent job on single-world lookups, but it also feels a bit outdated.
  4. Swisscows Translate – A good translation service supporting many languages.
If you want to translate blocks of text, check out DeepL. If you want in-depth translations for single words or phrases, then Linguee is a good choice.

Google analytics alternative

For website admins, there are many reasons to use an alternative to Google analytics. Aside from privacy concerns, there are also faster and more user-friendly alternatives that also respect your visitors’ privacy.
  1. Clicky is a great alternative to Google Analytics that truncates and anonymizes visitor IP addresses by default. It is lightweight, user-friendly, and fully compliant with GDPR regulations, while also being certified by Privacy Shield.
  2. Matomo (formerly Piwik) is an open-source analytics platform that respects the privacy of visitors by anonymizing and truncating visitor IP addresses (if enabled by the website admin). It is also certified to respect user privacy.
  3. Fathom Analytics is an open source alternative to Google Analytics that’s available on Github here. It’s minimal, fast, and lightweight.
  4. Get Insights – Another privacy-focused analytics platform, with a full analytics suite. The front-end client is open source and available here.
  5. AT Internet is a France-based analytics provider that is fully GDPR compliant, with all data stored on French servers, and a good track record going back to 1996.
Many websites host Google Analytics because they run Google Adsense campaigns. Without Google Analytics, tracking performance of these campaigns would be difficult. Nonetheless, there are still better options for privacy.

Google Maps alternative

A map alternative for PCs is OpenStreetMap.
A few Google Maps alternatives for mobile devices include:
  1. OsmAnd is a free and open-source mobile maps app for both Android and iOS (based on OpenStreetMap data).
  2. Maps (F Droid) uses OpenStreetMap data (offline).
  3. Maps.Me is another option that is free on both Android and iOS, but there is a fair amount of data collection with this alternative, as explained in their privacy policy.
  4. MapHub is also based on OpenStreeMap data and it does not collect locations or user IP addresses.
Note: Waze is not an “alternative” as it is now owned by Google.

Google Play Store alternative

Currently the best Google Play Store alternative is to use F-Droid and then go through the Yalp store. As explained on the official site, F-Droid is an installable catalog of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) applications for the Android platform.
After you have installed F-Droid, you can then download the Yalp store APK, which allows you to download apps from the Google Play Store directly as APK files.
📷The Yalp Store is a good alternative to the Google Play Store.
See the F-Droid website or the official GitHub page for more info. Other alternatives to the Google Play Store include:

Google Chrome OS alternative

Want to ditch the Chromebook and Chrome OS? Here are a few alternatives:
  1. Linux – Of course, Linux is arguably the best alternative, being a free, open-source operating system with lots of different flavors. With some adjustments, Linux Ubuntu can be run on Chromebooks.
  2. Tails – Tails is a free, privacy-focused operating system based on Linux that routes all traffic through the Tor network.
  3. QubesOS – Recommended by Snowden, free, and also open source.
Of course, the other two big operating system alternatives are Windows and Apple’s operating system for MacBooks – Mac OS. Windows, particularly Windows 10, is a very bad option for privacy. While slightly better, Apple also collects user data and has partnered with the NSA) for surveillance.

Android alternatives

The biggest alternative to Android is iOS from Apple. But we’ll skip over that for reasons already mentioned. Here are a few Android OS alternatives:
  1. LineageOS – A free and open-source operating system for phones and tablets based on Android.
  2. Ubuntu Touch – A mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system.
  3. Plasma Mobile – An open source, Linux-based operating system with active development.
  4. Sailfish OS – Another open source, Linux-based mobile OS.
  5. Replicant – A fully free Android distribution with an emphasis on freedom, privacy, and security.
  6. /e/ – This is another open source project with a focus on privacy and security.
Purism is also working on a privacy-focused mobile phone called the Librem 5. It is in production, but not yet available (estimated Q3 2019).

Google Hangouts alternatives

Here are some alternatives to Google Hangouts:
  1. Wire – A great all-around secure messenger, video, and chat app, but somewhat limited on the number of people who can chat together in a group conversation via voice or video.
  2. Signal – A good secure messenger platform from Open Whisper Systems.
  3. Telegram – A longtime secure messenger app, formerly based in Russia, now in Dubai.
  4. Riot – A privacy-focused encrypted chat service that is also open source.

Google Domains alternative

Google Domains is a domain registration service. Here are a few alternatives:
  1. Namecheap – I like Namecheap because all domain purchases now come with free WhoisGuard protection for life, which protects your contact information from third parties. Namecheap also accepts Bitcoin and offers domain registration, hosting, email, SSL certs, and a variety of other products.
  2. Njalla – Njalla is a privacy-focused domain registration service based in Nevis. They offer hosting options, too, and also accept cryptocurrency payments.
  3. OrangeWebsite – OrangeWebsite offers anonymous domain registration services and also accepts cryptocurrency payments, based in Iceland.

Other Google alternatives

Here more alternatives for various Google products:
Google forms alternativeJotForm is a free online form builder.
Google Keep alternative – Below are a few different Google Keep alternatives:
Google Fonts alternative – Many websites load Google fonts through Google APIs, but that’s not necessary. One alternative to this is to use Font Squirrel, which has a large selection of both Google and non-Google fonts which are free to download and use.
Google Voice alternativeJMP.chat (both free and paid)
G Suite alternativeZoho is probably the best option
Google Firebase alternativeKuzzle (free and open source)
Google Blogger alternativesWordPress, Medium, and Ghost are all good options.

Algorand announces $50M grant program to boost its blockchain

The Algorand Foundation has announced a new grants program worth $50 million.
A decentralized finance-focused blockchain platform, Algorand has earmarked a total of 250 million ALGO tokens for the multi-year initiative, designed “to provide funding to projects building apps to support infrastructure, end-user application, and research innovation on its blockchain.”
In addition, on April 14 the Algorand Foundation also announced a new developers portal, featuring tutorials, articles, and use-case solutions featuring code samples and explanations.
Three beneficiaries of the fund have already been announced, who will share six million ALGO (about $1.2 million) between them.
Multi-blockchain infrastructure provider Bloq delivers Algorand nodes and APIs, while PureStake is an open-source browser plug-in allowing developers to add the capacity for Algorand transactions into their applications. Lastly, the development platform Reach is “designed to remove the complexity of building DApps on the Algorand blockchain and to enable the future creation of DAOs, decentralized exchanges and many other DeFi applications on Algorand.”

The criteria

Projects that are selected to receive a grant are chosen based on the positive impact they could have on the Algorand community and on the ecosystem. Other factors include the quality of the application, the technical or academic strength of the proposal, and the concept’s opportunity for growth going forward.
Bloq, PureStake, and Reach are going to undergo an evaluation after receiving the funding. The Algorand Foundation says it plans to introduce an open grant program in the not-too-distant future—enabling the broader community to vote on which projects should receive grants.
“The grant program from the Algorand Foundation is one of the most focused programs out there, and we believe it will be instrumental in accelerating the adoption of Algorand’s platform,” Reach founder Chris Swenor said.
PureStake CEO Derek Yoo added that “easy and pragmatic developer tools are critical to further expanding the accessibility of the Algorand network.”

Cool tool

The Algorand blockchain is the brainchild of Silvio Micali, a Turing-award winning cryptographer and MIT professor who is also one of the minds behind zero-knowledge proofs, a cryptography method gaining a following in privacy-focused cryptocurrency circles. He is No. 81 on the Modern Consensus 100 most influential people in crypto 2020 list.
As reported by Modern Consensus, Algorand recently won plaudits for its energy-efficient blockchain protocol.
In January, French start-up PlanetWatch chose the firm as a partner to put global air quality test results on the blockchain.
Algorand was chosen because of how its platform requires “minimal processing power” to achieve consensus—a serious issue considering that some studies indicate that Bitcoin mining uses as much energy as Switzerland.

What are Stable Coins? USDT, TUSD, GUSD, USDC and USDQ

What are Stable Coins? USDT, TUSD, GUSD, USDC and USDQ
https://preview.redd.it/pj2ucbd66vt41.png?width=1025&format=png&auto=webp&s=bc887cbbc39b867ca8e64fd6c1e03740b98bd2dc
In this article, we will look at USDQ, a fully algorithmic stablecoin that offers reliability and easy collateralization for Bitcoin.
A unique decentralized stablecoin features various price stabilization algorithms, an intricate system of incentives for traders and AI-driven predictive analytics module.
It’s clear that cryptocurrencies are gradually making inroads into the global economy, moving closer to mass adoption. Cryptocurrencies offer a number of advantages – decentralization and trust, lower commissions and disintermediation – that make it easier for users to carry out their daily transactions. Anybody can transfer value around the globe, winning from fast processing time.
In comparison, sending value across borders via legacy financial systems requires lengthy waiting periods and fees, while also making users stuck into highly complex processes. For instance, if a person from Japan wants to send some money to England, the fees can range anywhere from 5% up to 10%, depending on the system being used. In addition, there will be some currency conversion fees. It seems that centralized players, currently enjoying lack of competition, set up fees and commissions just as they wish.
It’s merchants that carry out cross-border transactions that find working with legacy finance institutions most troublesome. They keep losing hefty chunks from their potential profits, just paying out fees to payment processors. This makes businesses hike up their prices, passing these expenses to ordinary consumers. Crypto offers a paradigm shift change, bringing to the table lightning speed and lower fees. Although cryptocurrencies have been winning more and more attention from merchants worldwide, there’s still a number of roadblocks to wider adoption, among which are price volatility, scalability limitations and others.
Volatility is admittedly the biggest hurdle that prevents businesses from using cryptocurrencies more. Bitcoin can experience huge fluctuations in just a matter of hours or even minutes. In addition, major coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum present scalability issues, which results in high processing time. A merchant, who has to handle hundreds of payments on a daily basis, would not be able to conduct their business efficiently if transactions get stuck for days on end. On top of that, it’s extremely hard for adopters to convert cryptocurrencies into fiat via the banks and other financial agents they usually work with.
Cryptocurrencies seek to offer solutions to all of these issues.

What is stablecoin?

A stablecoin is a cryptocurrency, whose architecture enables its price to always equal the price of another asset. Most of the stablecoins are pegged to USD. The biggest names in cryptocurrencies are Tether, Gemini Dollar, USDQ, TUSD and others.

How do stablecoins manage to be so stable?

As opposed to other coins that float freely, stable cryptocurrencies require that each unit is backed with a unit of the fiat currency. For instance, Tether (USDT) pegs 1 USDT to 1 USD on the one-to-one basis. In this way, stablecoins are somewhere between cryptocurrencies and regular fiats. Tether is based on its own blockchain that is built on top of Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum systems.
Although Tether is the biggest stablecoin, there’s a number of concerns as to its operations. The biggest one is the continuing controversy as to the fiat reserves, which the issuer is supposed to store on the one-to-one ratio to the number of issued Tether units. The company has been saying that the audit will be done in the near future, but just several weeks ago it started to claim that it’s not only the cash, but also loans to other companies that can be recorded as fiat reserves. These statements resulted in growing distrust among crypto enthusiasts.
Another project is TrueUSD (TUSD). It also pegs to USD. The difference with Tether is the openness to audits and transparency. The company is open to third-party audits, it publishes the duly verified reports on the fiat reserves it holds. In addition, users enjoy legal protections.
USDC is another stablecoin that was created by the famous cryptocurrency exchange Circle. Just as TUSD, if offers regulatory compliance and transparency. The big problem with all these systems is the fact that they enable authorities to seize users’ funds, which completely negates the very idea of decentralization and anti-censorship, on which crypto is built.
USDQ is different from other stablecoins as it’s not backed by the fiat currency, but by Bitcoin and other top-10 cryptocurrencies in the future. This enables the ecosystem to avoid dealing with legacy financial systems. Through the over-collateralization process, USDQ turns highly volatile cryptocurrencies into the USD-pegged USDQ that is perfect for storing value and processing transactions in the external economy without any risk of price changes. The coin is being developed by PLATINUM ENGINEERING with the small community slowly growing around the project.

Why do we need stablecoins?

Stablecoins have advanced as a new iteration on cryptocurrencies, enabling to address such issues as high volatility and interactions with legacy financial systems.
Coins like USDQ make sure that various mechanisms are used in order to stabilize the prices at the USD peg. Traders can easily change their Bitcoins into USDQ and thus prevent the negative impact on unwanted prices changes. Stablecoins are very easy to use, which is a boon for non-techy adopters. Any person from around the world can quickly convert fiats into stablecoins, without any need to think about future price changes and without worrying about potential risks for losing their funds. As a rule, you’ll always find various stablecoins on crypto exchanges, enabling traders to quickly move around stables and other cryptos.
As we’ve spoken above, cross-border payments win most from using the stablecoins. This hybrid species between fiat and crypto will help open up the hidden value in global trade, amounting to trillions of dollars in profits for stakeholders.
The Telos Community recently partnered with CARBON and announced their new stablecoin: TLOSD.
TLOSD is a USD backed coin that is now available on all exchanges that support Telos and the Carbon API.
Users can now buy TLOS with Debit card, Credit card, Apple Pay or bank account, making it easier than ever to invest in TLOS and start using the Telos blockchain.
“Our dapp will provide frictionless and global access to TLOS via credit/debit cards. Our stable coin TLOSD will provide a reliable store of value and medium of exchange on-chain in addition to direct fiat on/off ramps into and out of the Telos network. Telos has demonstrated truly decentralized networks can come together, get things done, and create real value.” – Telos Foundation

1234

[ 🎶 Thinking Cap ] This post is framed around results of cypher-based queries for the number 1234 against my custom lexicon files built up over a year of phrase inputs (mostly gleaned from newspaper headlines and their 'quoted phrases', or stream of conciousness inspired by them). There are not very many, but the few there are appear to be instructive. I have used some repetition to aid those with trouble remembering numbers. Perhaps NSFW. (For the confused: see here, here and here)
If you are brand new to this collection of scrolls, I recommend reading (as much as you can of) this before returning here, which will help to justify my particular focus below (the belt).
Did you gnow A=1?
There are 26 letters in the English-Latin Alphabet.
The basic alphabetic gematria code acknowledges that A=1, B=2, C=3, ..., Z=26 (ie. ordinal gematria).
In this basic alphabetic cypher (which is implied if I do not specify):
If you flip the numeric ordering about (ie. look in the mirror: treat 'Z' as 1, down to 'A' as 26), then...
This ("The ABC") is the name of the earliest alphabet primer textbooks for kids.
The first church primers paralleled the introduction of school textbooks known as “the ABC”
The Alphabet is a vessel for messages:
If, instead of the basic alphabetic ordinal cyphers above, we use another cypher some call Agrippa's Key, and some call the 'jewish cipher', which is based on the ancient Hebrew and Greek gematria charts, and maps that scheme to the Latin Alphabet, we can ask a catch-phrase question (written more formally than usual)
What's in a name?
Indeed:
Here we move beyond the three steps of ABC and arrive at the Door of Dalet. Behind it, if we have the write keys, we might discover...
The results of...
Itself the result of...
... of the Masters of the Ages.
Or not.

I have a spell-matching feature that can cross-match multiple cypher results and return the 'closest frequency matches' of all the spells I've ever entered into my gematria tools. At the time of writing the lexicon file is half a megabyte in size (plain text) and contains 37,694 words and phrases.
When I ask for the spellings that most closely match: "live forever", I get the following three results as top matches:
  • 'white liquid', 'into the girl', and 'the dilution' (with 8+ cypher matches)
There are a lot of flowery symbolic or metaphorical phrases that it could have returned, but it seems the Heptapods are rather blunt.
Again:

From...
Revelation 9:11 King James Version (KJV):
And they had a king [41] over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon [41] , but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
This is perhaps a dual - the Abaddon is both Father Beast (and Lord of the Harem, perhaps, given the plural 'them') and the Beastly Progeny (ie. King and Prince):
  • "Pregnant" = 333 jewish-latin-agrippa
  • "The Temple" = 333 jewish-latin-agrippa
  • ... "A Baby" = 333 trigonal
The angelic little baby, retrieved from the bottomless pit, is the apple of mommy and daddy's eyes (even though it is very naughty, ruling over their lives for many years after his or her noxious retrieval from the Underworld).

  • ... "Survive" = 393 primes

The first kind of exoplanet found, Hot Jupiters still perplex and captivate
from The Comte De Gabalis, discourse 1: https://www.sacred-texts.com/eso/cdg/cdg04.htm
He found me to be of a tractable, inquiring, and fearless disposition. A dash of melancholy is lacking in me, else I would make all, who are inclined to blame the Comte de GABALIS for having concealed nothing from me, confess that I was a not unfit subject for the Occult Sciences. One cannot make great progress in them, it is true, without melancholy; but the little that I possess in no wise disheartened him. You have, he told me a hundred times, Saturn in an angle, in his own house, and retrograde; some day you cannot. fail to be as melancholy as a Sage ought to be; for the wisest of all men, as we learn in the Cabala, had like you Jupiter in the Ascendant, nevertheless so powerful was the influence of his Saturn, though far weaker than yours, that one cannot find proof of his having laughed a single time in all his life. The Amateurs must, therefore,
