Cryptocurrency: Good investment or One World currency?(Part 1 of 2)

Bit2....jpg

As I’m pretty sure by now, most of you have heard in some form or fashion the word “cryptocurrency” being tossed around in the media & social media due to the most popular form of cryptocurrency by the name of Bitcoin (BTC) reaching a value level of as high as $7,380.56 per coin.  To some people, the mere fact that this form of currency is so valuable is enough to get most people excited as they sit around pondering the possibilities of transforming this currency into a fiat currency to where they can essentially ball out of control.  To other people, most honestly have no clue what cryptocurrency is, why it’s so valuable, why people are so excited about it, & why people are rushing to get involved in the cryptocurrency market.  Well, I’m about to give you the most elementary explanation that I can think of in order to help you understand what cryptocurrency is, why cryptocurrency WILL dominate the future & more importantly why you SHOULD get involved in this market, especially if you are black.

Everything from money to social media activities are centralized (controlled by some organization).  The stuff you post to Facebook is stored on Facebook servers all across the world that are owned & controlled by Facebook.  Every time you withdraw money from an ATM machine, send money via PayPal, pay for something using a debit/credit card, all of those transactions must go through a bank (centralized) to where the bank controls the actual process of sending/receiving, recording & verifying transactions before the disbursement of funds…for a fee of course.  These transactions themselves are stored on servers owned & controlled by these institutions as well.
These servers are very important for a reason.  These servers process & store the information they collect from you (in addition to data mining this information to be sold to third party companies who then send you a bunch of junk via email or snail mail to convince you to buy).  Another reason these servers are so important is because these servers are also extremely valuable to hackers roaming the internet looking to compromise a server to gain access to the information residing on the server to be later sold on the black market (think identity theft).  The problem with these servers is that in the grand scheme of things, they represent single point of failures that are constantly being attacked & exploited for nefarious purposes.  All of the information that you’ve posted to Facebook ONLY resides on Facebook’s servers spread out across the world.  This information does not reside on any of Google’s servers which means if someone managed to wreck havoc on Facebook’s system causing the site to crash or something catastrophic to where your information was compromised (as in recent issues involving Yahoo!), then you couldn’t turn to Google’s servers in an attempt to retrieve the information you had stored on Facebook’s servers, because they are not connected in that manner to allow for the free flow of data to be exchanged & stored.  I have a decade+ background in IT & I have a master degree in Information Assurance.  My master degree alone is basically a degree that focuses on protecting information floating around being stored on servers.  So the problem is a very real problem that most people are unaware of.

Cryptocurrencies function off of a technology called blockchain.  Blockchain essentially eliminates the single point of failure aspect by removing the storage of data on centralized servers owned by private/public entities.  The data on the blockchain whether it is financial transactions, social media activities etc are stored across a gigantic network of computers called nodes to where the information stored cannot be controlled by one entity or hacked causing severe problems due to single point of failure issues I described above.  The reason the data on the blockchain cannot be hacked is because the data resides on a distributed network is highly encrypted to where a hacker can’t just hack one single point on the blockchain, they would have to hack the entire blockchain essentially.  Also, the data residing in the blocks on the blockchain are constantly updated across the network to wherever you access the data on the network, the data will be the same.

Here’s an example of what I mean by the data being centralized & decentralized in addition to the data being “mirrored” across the network no matter where you are to access the data.

Back in the day on Microsoft Word a person would type a paper, save the paper, & then email the paper to somebody to make corrections.  The person whom the email was sent to would get the email, open MS Word, make corrections, email you the paper back, then you would make necessary changes to the paper.  This entire process was centralized to where only one party had control of the paper at a time and the other party couldn’t get access to the paper until the owning party relinquished control.

Now, we have Google Docs (basically cloud computing) to where multiple parties at the same time can access, view and/or edit the paper in real time without waiting for one party to relinquish control of the paper (decentralized).

How this ties into the data floating around on the blockchain is…you’re not inputting your data into just one entity and entrusting that one entity to do the right thing as far as processing and safeguarding your data (for a fee in most instances).  You are now putting your data across a distributed network to where copies of that data will exist in multiple places at once.  So, if I upload some data from my home computer on the blockchain, my data will be added to the blockchain which will then be replicated across the network and not just sitting on one server that I would need to gain access to (think…logging into Facebook, you’re essentially logging into a site that stores your updates on their servers).  In a decentralized scenario, in theory, I would be able to log into my gmail account and still be able to access my data on Facebook.

Now some of you are probably wondering how this data is protected if this data is “free floating” on the blockchain versus the data (supposedly) being protected on some entity’s servers.

Simple, the data is encrypted (it’s encrypted on these entity’s servers too by the way…or at least should be).  But the encryption on the blockchain isn’t CENTRALIZED, meaning you are not relying solely on that one entity to encrypt & protect your data.

So how the encryption works is fairly simple for the most part.  Blockchain works off of an encryption practice called asymmetric encryption.  Asymmetric encryption involves the use of a public & private key to gain access to data.  Any data you put on the blockchain is encrypted to where the data looks like a bunch of meaningless letters, numbers & symbols that would literally take decades (if not longer) to decipher.

A private & public key can be thought of this way…

You maintain a mailbox at a UPS store.  UPS gives you 2 keys:  one to access the UPS store and the other key to access your personal mailbox within the store.  The UPS store key that you possess is the same key that some random person with a mailbox at the UPS store would possess as well, but that random person does not have your private key (or shouldn’t) to access your personal mailbox.

So on the blockchain, what tends to happen is, people constantly give out their public key to pretty much anybody who wants it for the purpose of exchanging data (and/or “money”…cryptocurrency).  But to unlock or gain access to the item in the transaction, a person would need your private key to do so.  So basically what takes place is, Person A wants to send an item to Person B.  Person A sends an item to Person B using Person B’s PUBLIC KEY.  This item is encrypted within Person B’s PUBLIC KEY.  Person B receives the item from Person A.  Person B now uses his PRIVATE KEY to decrypt his PUBLIC KEY to get access to the item Person A sent him.  If anybody were to intercept Person B’s PUBLIC KEY, they would NOT be able to access the data encrypted on that public key without having access to Person B’s PRIVATE KEY.  Person A can’t even get access to the data he sent Person B because Person A used Person B’s PUBLIC KEY to encrypt the data and ONLY Person B’s PRIVATE KEY can decrypt Person B’s PUBLIC KEY.  Got it?  Good.

Now, all of these transactions are continually updated across the blockchain network in a matter of minutes to where each transaction is essentially “etched in stone” to where a new “block” is created in the overall network which is then duplicated everywhere on the network (think of my Google Docs analogy).  This is important because in order to hack the system, every other block that was created prior to the new block would have to be hacked as well which would require computing power that probably doesn’t exist to even make it worth somebody’s time & effort to attempt.  You can’t just hack one block, all the blocks are connected which mean you would have to hack ALL OF THE BLOCKS.  Also, you can’t delete data on the block once the data is recorded.  Now for the sake of this blog article, I’m choosing not get too technical beyond this point to prevent really confusing the hell out of people who have no idea how this works, but just want a basic general understanding of the technology behind it.

What I really want people to understand is why one Bitcoin is currently worth over $7K and why black people need to seriously get caught up on this technology to where you could benefit big from it in the coming years.  Crytocurrency (Bitcoin and other coins) is an intangible asset that rewards people for participating in the creation, maintenance & growth of the blockchain.  These people are called miners.  These people allow for their computers to be used as nodes for creating the actual blockchain which allows for you to engage in peer-to-peer transactions which also allows for you to remove the middleman & their fees out of the process.  They also allow for your data to be distributed without the need for a centralized distribution point that is owned by one entity.

People who are not miners invest in the cryptocurrencies that are being “mined” by these miners.  A miner is a person who basically uses their computer to solve complicated mathematical problems.  Each time they successfully solve a problem a coin is created.  These miners are paid in partials of coins that is based on a variety of factors.  The remaining partials are then placed on the market for non-miners to invest in or use as actual forms of currency to purchase items.  Matter of fact, Japan just recently recognized Bitcoin as a legit form of currency to purchase items.  There are even ATM machines in various countries (too include the US) that allow you to “withdraw” Bitcoin instead of dollars.

But here is what I really want black people to grasp & understand as this whole discussion relates to cryptocurrency and the blockchain technology…Black people need to think of this technology like it is the Internet 3.0.

When the internet first came out for general public use 20 something years ago, the internet was basically a place to visit websites and read stuff.  That was it.  The only people who were really making money off of the internet during that time were ISP’s (internet service providers) & people who registered domain names for the sole purpose of holding them and selling them to people later on (think if you bought Walmart_dot_com back then how much Walmart would have paid you to get that domain name).  You had a few other ways of making money here & there (the Dotcom Boom) but that was pretty much it.  Internet 2.0 ushered in the era of e-commerce & social media (where we presently are now).  As crazy as this may sound, a lot of people honestly didn’t think e-commerce or social media would take off.  A lot of people couldn’t fathom the idea of people buying products online or spending more time on a social media platform communicating to people than they did in real life.  But in the year 2017, look at how we communicate & engage in commerce now.  So now think of blockchain & cryptocurrency as internet 3.0 to where the internet will begin moving away from big companies like Google, Facebook, & banks controlling or having some influence on every aspect of everything that takes place on the internet.  The blockchain will not put these people out of business, but the blockchain will give people more power over how our data is being utilized on the internet.  This is all about ownership & control on the individual level versus relying on the big entities to do it for us.  Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have proven that there is a real demand & shift taking place to where as this technology continues to grow & mature, a lot of potential money stands to be made.

Degenerate Sexual Practices of Europeans(Sexbots and Animals)

Sexbots1...

Dogs1..

The sexual degeneracy of Europeans goes way back to Greek and Roman times. I’ve done a lot of research on what Europeans did back then.  And through white supremacy they want all races to see the world through their eyes.  Homosexuality,lesbianism,pedophilia and bestiality are nothing new to their culture.  But theses are not the ways of African people.  Black people should reject all of these sick practices.  They are anti-life and go against nature.  It is disrespectful to your ancestors to engage in any of this depraved behavior. We are totally different than them.  Their ways are not our ways. Make sure your children know this. We are hue-mans and they are mankind(kind of man) That’s why over the years they have subtly been pushing these sexual practices in the media.  I have seen these practices in television sitcoms,commercials and motion picture films.  Also many of these white social scientists are pushing the idea of transhumanism. Basically transhumanism is the belief that mankind has reached the limits of evolution.  And the only way mankind can keep evolving is through science and technology.  You see many Europeans believe they evolved from monkeys and apes.  Most black people know this is a silly theory.  Most black people in a Creator or a higher spiritual Being.  We have the power of melanin and dominant genetics on our side.  Our melanin gives us the power to reach a higher spiritual level than Europeans.  Since they have a lack of melanin they can not ascend to a higher realm of consciousness. White people have reached their physical and mental limitations.  Which is why they keep searching for the next big thing to turn them on sexually. Africans believe in working with mother nature and the ecosystem.  Europeans see nature has something to be controlled or dominated.  But this is why they are building sexbots. What type of man or woman would have sex with a robot?  They would have to be a very lonely and pitiful person. This is why there is such a disconnect to hue-manity.  All this obsession with cellphones,iPads,iPods and computers has gotten way out of hand.  All I know is that anyone that attempts to have  sex with an animal or robot is very sick!  I say attempt because this behavior is anti-sexual.   Sex is between a man and woman. There is NO other definition of sex.  Don’t let these white social scientists mislead you into thinking otherwise. This is abnormal,perverted,immoral and deviant!  Nothing but pure debauchery! These are very sexually confused people. But this is the type of depraved and disgusting practices these Europeans are pushing on the masses.  Be sure to check out the two videos(above) and let me know what you think.   But stay vigilant and always be aware of this wicked demonic  system.

Black Panther Mythos- African Science,Technology & Mathematics

Panther1..

The story of Marvel comic’s Black Panther is an interesting fictional story which weaves together and draws on multiple fascinating factual elements found throughout various African cultures throughout time.  Perhaps the most important of the facts and themes in the story of the Black Panther is the significance of Metallurgy and Blacksmiths in African culture, spiritual systems, and technological development.

The Story of Black Panther and Wakanda
10,000 years ago a meteorite comprised of a metal called Vibranium crashed on earth and landed in the country of Wakanda in Northeastern Africa.  The crashed Vibranium created a mountain, or mound, which was discovered by the Panther Tribe in Wakanda who became the guardians of the Vibranium moundBast and Sekhmet are two of the feline deities of the Panther Tribe, and the King and protector of the Panther tribe is a warrior who holds the title of “The Black Panther”.  The Black Panther also has a group of female warriors who serve as his personal bodyguards called the Dora Milaje.  As guardians of the Vibranium metal mound, the Panther tribe became skilled blacksmiths and metallurgist in antiquity which translated into a highly technologically advanced and economically stable African country in the present day, where one of the major resources of the country of Wakanda is Vibranium.  Because of their high level of advanced technology, Wakanda has never been conquered, colonized, or enslaved.

Metal from the Sky 
The earliest known iron artifacts are 9 small beads, dated to 3200 BC, from Ancient Egypt in Northeast Africa, identified as meteoric iron shaped by careful hammering.  This evidence shows the Ancient Africans in Egypt were the first to use Iron prior to the official start of the “Iron Age” in 1300 BC.  The Ancient Egyptians called this Meteoric Iron “BAA EN PET” meaning “iron of the sky” or “metal of Heaven.”  The Ancient Egyptian’s word for the Blacksmith’s Forge was “Khepesh”, and that same word was a homonym to the word for a scimitar sword shaped metal weapon casted in the forge, as well as to the constellation of the Great Bear – Ursa Major.

The Iron King:
The 7th Pharaoh of the Ancient Egypt’s 1st dynasty was named Anedjib Mer-ba-pen (spelled various in English as Merbiape, Meribiap, Merbapen, Miebîdós, and Mibampes) which literally meant “Lover of Iron”. Anedjib ruled around 2930 BC.

African Blacksmiths
Ancient Africans in Egypt who were Blacksmiths and Metallurgists had knowledge of several different types of Metals and Metal alloys as attested to in the Medu Neter from Ancient Egypt:

  • Meteoric Iron    – baa en pet
  • Iron        – benpi
  • Gold        – Nub
  • Silver        – hetch
  • Copper        – hemt
  • Tin, Lead    – anak
  • Electrum     – nub waas
  • Bronze        – ut

The Medu Neter word for “Blacksmith” was Mesen (singular) and Mesniu (plural – the 7 mythic blacksmiths of Heru who made weapons).  The Medu neter word Mesen may be related to the English word “Mason“.  The Mesniu are also called the Heru-shemsu  (the blacksmiths of Edfu).  Additionally, the word Nebi in Medu Neter meant “to smlet, to work in metals” and was also a homonym to the word Nebi or Nebibi meaning “Leopard or Panther”.

The Blacksmith deity in Ancient Egypt was Ptah, who represented the Primordial Mound, and he had two wives Sekhmet (Southern Egypt) and Bast (Northern Egypt) represented by Felines.  The Ancient Egyptian Blacksmith deity Ptah’s son by Bast was the Lion-Headed deity of war named Maahes, who was called Apedemak in Nubia and Meroe.  The “Sem” priests of Ptah (who were more scientists than “priests”) were also Blacksmiths and Metallurgists who wore Leopard Skins.  The wearing of Leopard Skins was also a custom of the Nubians of Meroe, and the Nubian Kingdom of Meroe was huge Iron smelting capital.  It is important to know that Panthers are Melanistic Leopards.

Overtime, various Leopard “Secret Societies” who were also Blacksmiths, spring up across the African Continent:

  • Ekpe – Nigeria (uses the Nsibidi script)
  • Abakuá – Cameroon and Nigeria
  • Anyoto Aniota – Sierra Leone, Liberia, Côte d’Ivoire, and Nigeria
  • Leopard Society of Bassaland – Liberia (uses the Vai script)

In the books “African Jungle Doctor” by Werner Junge and “Jungle Pilot in Liberia” by Abe Guenter, an experience in Bassaland (Liberia) during the early to mid 1900s is described where reports were made about “Leopard Men” and people who would dress in Leopard skins and fashion and wear claws of steel with which they would use as weapons.  Brass Metal rings called ‘Dwin’, ‘tien’ or ‘nitien’, meaning “water spirits”, or ‘Gods of water’ were forged by the blacksmiths of the tribes of Bassaland and left as offerings to the “Brass God” of the Leopard Men.  The Kru and Grebo people believe these objects are living creatures that can be found in creeks, rivers and lagoons.  These objects have shared interpretive meanings with the Dikenga from the African Congo, Thor’s spinning Hammer Fylfot (also called Swastika), and Ptah’s Hammer (the Djed, Ankh, and Waas).

Panther3..

Similar to the “Dwin – water spirits,” the Mande, Bamana, and Dogon Blacksmiths of Mali tell stories of water Spirits called the Nommo who are Blacksmiths of a Metal from the star Sirius called SAGALA.  The Mande Blacksmiths control a force called Nyama, which is synonymous with Nyame of the Akan people.  An important Blacksmith ancestor in Akan culture is Nana Adade Kofi.  The Mande Blacksmiths of Mali form Castes called Nummu which is phonetically similar to the Nommo water spirits spoken of by the Dogon Blacksmiths.  One of the Nommo the Dogon Blacksmiths speak of is named OGO, who is synonymous with the Orisha Blacksmith OGUN in Nigeria.  The Blacksmith culture in Nigeria has existed since 1000 BC with the NOK culture.  The Blacksmith Orisha Ogun is called GU in the Dahomey culture of Benin.  The Blacksmith Ogun, OGO, or GU is said to be married to the warrior Orisha OYA.  The 19th century Kingdom of Dahomey (present day Benin) who were practitioners of the system of Vodun which ackknowledged Oya, developed an all-female military regiment who were an embodiment of the warrior Orisha OYA.  This group of African Warrior Women had various names including N’Nonmiton or Mino (meaning “our mothers”), Ahosi (meaning King’s wives), and Gbeto (meaning “Elephant Hunters”).  European narratives referred to these women soldiers as Amazons.  This “warrior Queen” characteristic found amongst the women of the  Dahomey Kingdom was also found amongst the Kandakes, or Candaces, who ruled the Nubian Iron smelting city of Meroe (800 BC – 350 CE).

The Role of the Blacksmith has been central and integral to African Culture, Society, Spirituality, and Technology throught the ages, and the Leopard, Panther, or Feline has been one of the Symbols associated with African Blacksmiths since Ancient times.
