Can blockchain technology be used to manage sensitive data?

I occasionally freelance for a company that specialises in communications and social media and a few months ago, they asked me to transcript and translate three videos about a topic I knew nothing about: data management in the music industry.


The job was a bit boring but I learnt a lot, and I learnt that managing data, especially when it comes to intellectual property, is a complicated mess. And I immediately thought to myself, “this is what blockchain technology is designed for, actually”.


A few months later, at a crypto and NFT conference in Belgrade dubbed ‘Tomorrow Conference’, I came across the founder of a company that does exactly that: blockchain-based data management.


The company is called Inery and what they aim to do is convert data into readable form, provide backup and blockchain-based management with cross-chain capabilities as well.


The native token is called $INR, on the Tron network (based on what I could find), you can find the contract here.

And you can find more info here.


$INR is the unit of exchange to access decentralised storage of Inery, you can stake it, become a validator and participate in governance.


When non-crypto people ask about crypto and NFTs they usually get a pre-ready answer that this is a “blockchain-based” asset or currency. That’s a non-answer that I personally think it’s not very useful because you then have to explain what the Blockchain is.


So the idea of managing data using ‘blockchain technology’ means nothing unless you can explain, easily and quickly, what the blockchain can do for you.


Let me give a shot: the blockchain is based on cryptography, which is basically like math. You can either manage data relying on human beings and trusting they’ll do the right thing, or you can use blockchain technology and trust that 2+2 always equals 4. Always.

First European panel in the Metaverse to take place in Belgrade, Serbia (and I’ll be there)

Belgrade is the former capital of Jugoslavia, the capital and largest city in Serbia, a global and vibrant hub. And it is also my home. I relocated here about a year ago and when I heard there would be a 3-day crypto-focused event at Belgrade Fair, on the right bank of the Sava River, I immediately knew I had to go. So I will.


This is the largest Crypto, NFT and Metaverse conference in Europe and while I’m looking forward to the 7 panels, 100 speakers and 50 keynotes, what really, really interests me is the people. I wanna know what people think. What they bought, or sold, or hodled, and why, and how, and when. And their take on the Metaverse and NFTs being used as an art form but also as a means of authenticating property and assets.


ECD’s founder Aleksandar Matanovic will be there, along with Craig Sellers, founder of Tether, Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of the Blockchain Alliance of Europe and Bruno Ver, blockchain specialist and founder of the top NFT business NIFTIFY.


I will be sharing updates in the coming days here, as well as on Bitcoinea.

What the heck is Duckcoin and does it still exist?

I love Algorand. Big fan. I’m super bullish on Algorand. Mainly because of its user-friendly wallet with a built-in yelding system (wrong expression, but I wanted to use it ’cause it sounds cool), by which I mean: all you have to do to earn Algo on your Algo is leave your Algo in an Algo wallet. That’s it. Anyway, I’m bullish, and I’m also curious, so I was mindlessly taking a look around and noticed that you can actually add other assets in the Algo wallet, and one of them is Duckcoin. Quack.



Duckcoin ($Quack) operates on the Algorand blockchain, and apparently, according to a random user on Reddit (sorry, I’ll do my own research later, I was just excited), it has a max supply of 50m, 74% of which was in circulation… a month ago. So it’s gotta be more now. For some reason I can’t seem find to find the PPC. I’ll keep looking.


Anyway, Duckcoin, as it says on the website aDuckcoin.com, is a self-proclaimed meme coin for the Algorand blockchain, I’ve added it in my wallet and now I’m gonna start looking for faucets, just to get an idea. If it still exists. I can’t seem a lot of info about it, tbh.


What do you think? Have you heard of it before and/or do you own any? Let me know in the comments below. Cheers.

We have been duped, but crypto is our ticket out of poverty

Now, yeah, ‘poverty’ is a very strong word. The definition of poverty varies depending on where you are in the world. I was born and raised in a country where a $500 monthly salary would be considered low, but I am now living in a country where the same salary is more or less average. If you’re reading this from any of the Scandinavian countries, or the U.S., or Australia, with $500 you’d end up in the streets.


I’m a millennial, like the vast majority of crypto holders (49% of the total), which means, just for a start, I’ve had the opportunity (*insert irony here*) to enjoy (*insert irony here*) not one but two once-in-a-lifetime financial crisis. In 2008, when millennials were 14-28 (give or take) and again in 2020, due to C19 of course, when most Millennials are in their 30s. Lucky us, eh?


I don’t wanna bore you with the details and the data, mainly because there are a lot of YouTubers that can do it a lot better than I can, but the bottom line, millennials are statistically more in debt that any other generation, they’re statistically less likely to own the home they live in, and they have the least amount of wealth.


BUT we’ve invented (figure of speech) cryptocurrencies, and we’re strong believers in this technology because older generations shun it or disregard it, and yes, the generation that followed us, Gen Z, is catching up but some of them are simply too young to take charge of their financial situation.


I feel like we’ve been duped. We’ve inherited debts we haven’t created, became students just in time to see the price of college skyrocket, and became workers just in time to be hit by inflation and prohibitive housing pricing.


BUT we’ve got crypto. And no one can take that from us. Literally.


Drop a comment, a like or a (much-appreciated) tip if you’re a millennial.

Is the pain over? Bitcoin is taking a break

Last night, bitcoin fell off a cliff and went from $46,000 to $42,500 in a matter of hours. We spent 20-odd hours in the red zone until things cooled off and now the world’s most popular cryptocurrency seems to have bottomed out at around $43,000, which is where it’s resting now. Ethereum, that’s often the case, fell down a bit more gently and is now recovering a bit more quickly.


Yearn Finance is doing pretty well, currently sitting at $35,882, meanwhile XRP and Aave are still suffering. BAT is down, Cardano is down. Everything is down. You know when you open your CoinmarketCap  or Coinbase account and it shows the ‘gainers’ and ‘losers’ of the last 24 hours? Well, everyone’s a loser today.


Late investors probably stopped panic-selling and early investors are slowly and painfully digesting the latest round of Fed’s ‘good news’. Meanwhile, the situation in Kazakhstan, which is crucial, is still not exactly rosy.


I wanted to buy the dip’s dip’s dip’s dip’s when it got $42,500 but I was out of money. Dammit.

NO, the digital YUAN is not a cryptocurrency, it’s the exact opposite

It seems these days any conversation about cryptocurrencies and bitcoin with people who are new to the crypto world ends up with comparisons to the digital YUAN and other proposed digital currencies that various world governments are working on. I don’t blame them, I blame, as ever, the media. Earlier today, I received not one but two notifications on my phone from not one but two crypto news apps with headlines about the digital YUAN and on both occasions, I rolled my eyes and thought “what is this bit of news doing here?”.


People who are new to the world automatically compare bitcoin and digital currencies such as the Chinese YUAN because they think “well, they’re both only virtual, they must be comparable”, and media outlets fuel this with stories where they make it sound like these two things belong to the same conversation. They don’t.


The digital YUAN is a fully (heavily) centralised, government-issued, government-backed and government-controlled currency, bitcoin is none of those things. If you’re reading this you probably know this, and perhaps you share my frustration. And it doesn’t end there because, and I’ll do my best to leave politics out of the equation, there’s another major issue we gotta talk about: social credit.


China has a social credit system, this is a fact, which basically categorises citizens based on how well they behave. I personally think this is absolutely insane, but you’re free to develop your opinion on that. The point is, China can, and probably will, tie the digital YUAN to the social credit system, which means that they can ban citizens from purchasing goods and services based on what they say (perhaps about the government) or did. That’s never gonna happen with bitcoin. In fact, that’s exactly what bitcoin is for. You own your bitcoin, and no one can take it or corrupt it.


Sorry about the rant. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

According to market research, 72% believe technology makes the world a better place. What are your thoughts?

This year’s edition of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is underway in Las Vegas and Bosch, the multinational engineering and tech giant, has used the occasion to publish the results of a market research the company has conducted. According to the study, 72% percent of people surveyed believe technology makes the world a better place. Would you agree?


I’m not so sure. More to the point, if we’re talking about the way we conduct business, the way we perform certain tasks and so on, then yes, technology makes the world move faster and more easily and therefore one might argue that it also makes it better. But I don’t think technology makes us better, because I think that from a social point of view, things don’t look too good. With one exception: enter crypto.


Most people get into crypto because they see it as an easy ticket out of poverty and that’s often true. But the more they dig and study and think, and the more it becomes clear that the true value of crypto is the underlying technology. Power corrupts, by definition. And so far we’ve relied on governments and banks, but with crypto, we don’t have to rely on trust or benevolence because we know that for the most part, what you can or can’t do with crypto is dictated by, well, math. And it can’t be corrupted.


Maybe I’m just looking at it with rose-tinted glasses but I do believe but certain aspects of our lives will get better with crypto because it removes the incentive to misbehave. Am I making sense? Or is it the fact that I haven’t had my coffee yet? Let me know what you think in the comments.

The biggest lesson I’ve learnt hodling crypto? How to be patient

By nature, I’m not a very patient person. It’s one of my failings. One of many, I’ll admit. But for reasons that sometimes I can’t explain – even to myself – being patient with crypto comes relatively easy. The closest I ever got to selling due to uncertainty and lack of patience was March 2020, but I still didn’t.


That’s actually a complex conversation, and one worth having, because learning to live with – and through – crypto’s volatility is one of the driving factors for adoption. As more people get in and regulations come, the price will stabilize, but at the moment, the price is still moving ‘sideways’, with short, massive spikes and extended periods of ‘red’, because people who aren’t used to it buy some, they see a -30% or -40%, panic-sell to cut their (perceived) losses, helping the bear stay asleep.


Sometimes friends ask me how to invest in crypto, and I always tell them 1, nothing beats BTC and ETH even though they look expensive and 2, if you decided to buy some, start small and don’t panic when you see a massive drop, which it will. It’s normal. Just another day in the crypto space.


How about you? Are you patient by nature or has crypto helped you?

What is the Byzantine General’s problem and why is it important?

People have called bitcoin an asset, a property, a currency, a speculative investment. I think it can be all of those things but more than anything, bitcoin is a technology, or rather an instrument built on a technology, that we’d never seen before. And that’s why it’s important.


Before he, she or they disappeared, Satoshi Nakamoto said that bitcoin solved the Byzantine General’s Problem, also known as Byzantine Fault. And it (bitcoin) solves it, in a way that’s mathematically impossible to alter or corrupt. But what is the Byzantine Fault and why is it so important?


The name is derived from an allegory that describes a scenario where, in order to avoid a fatal mistake, the actors in the scenario must agree on a strategy. And here’s the kicker, you can’t guarantee that all actors will be reliable.


If the general says ‘attack’ and all soldiers attack at the same time, the battle is won, but how can you trust all soldiers to actually do what they said they would?


By implementing proof-of-work, bitcoin transactions are verified in a way that makes it impossible to say you’ve verified the transaction when you haven’t. And the Byzantine Fault will be overcome, so even if some of the soldiers don’t intend to attack, the end result will still be verified.


It’s kinda hard to understand, and even harder to explain, so please do feel free to correct me and/or add your thoughts/explanation in the comments.

The single most important mistake to avoid when sending crypto

Too often, people lose money in crypto because they transfer their balance from wallet/exchange to a different, unsupported wallet/exchange.


This is a huge deal, and it’s likely to become bigger as more blockchains and networks are created, and more people get into the space, and more exchanges are regulated and begin operating. This used to be straightforward back when we basically only had bitcoin and its native blockchain and everything else was sort of… irrelevant, but now you’ve got a bunch of different coins, tokens and blockchain and on top of that, you also have tokens that operate on different networks.


I realised this because earlier today I transferred some Tron (TRX) from one wallet to another and I had four (!) different network options, TRC20, BEP2, BEP20 and ERC20.


One of the most common mistakes happens with the Polygon network, which is unsupported by (among others) Coinbase, one of the largest and most commonly used exchanges. The golden rule is to always triple-check whether the token/coin you’re sending is supported by the platform/wallet you’re sending it to, on the network you need to use to send it, and always start with a small transfer to quadruple-check.


What do you think? Have you ever had that problem?
