Pascal Hideki Hamonic is a core team member of Nubits, a cryptocurrency pegged to the U.S. dollar. How is this peg achieved? How are network actors incentivized? Pascal reveals the Nu Network's future plans for more fiat-pegged networks, as well as contingency plans in case of fiat failure.

If it's based on the value of the USD, why don't they hold reserve in USD instead of bitcoin? Is it just to sever a direct connection to fiat currency market? Wouldn't it make more sense to hold something with more historical parallels with the USD like gold as their reserve?
I don't really follow the crypto-currency scene but the idea of a USD-pegged crypto currency is interesting.
Hey Amanda, could you do an interview on the Maidsafe Network? I hear an MVP will be coming out soon and I think It has huge potential to change everything from cryptocurrencies to even basically rewriting the internet itself.
I don't understand the point of pegging anything to a fiat currency when you can create a currency that has better characteristics and can outcompete even a 100% gold and silver back currency. Makes no sense....
Very informative video, Amanda! The Nu network seems to be the only one that has maintained a fiat peg for almost over a year and a half now. They are doing some great work and I'm looking forward to more pegged currencies from them in the future.
This sounds extremely vulnerable to systemic breakdown and the law of unintended consequences. Basically you're trying to replicate the function of the FED within a crypto currency. I don't see the point or the benefit of being pegged to a traditional currency either. In summary, a big fat 'nope' to this.
Hey Amanda, I LOVEEEE ur showww - here are some more recent electronic recommendations to balance out the hall&oats //^_~\\\
1). HEALTH (anything from their albums GET COLOR or DEATH MAGIC)...adrenaline rush diy noise music
2). Oneohtrix Point Never (Garden of Delete or any of his previous albums)...abstract/dark/digital/future chill
3). YACHT (new album or any of their previous 3) futuristic/optimistic/lyrical/fun/dancy/intellectual
4). James Ferraro (his current and previous 2 albums)...dreamlike/blissed out/digital future themes/uses computer voices and stuff
5). Matthew Dear (fave song is Dog Days ~ low key dance vibes, all his albums have good stuff so its hard to pick!)
6). DEVO - anything they did, a retro band doing awesome skater / computer music..!
HAVE FUN :)
Really informative! Music Suggestion: Utada Hikaru or Elton John. Interview Suggestion, How about interviewing someone from the "Dark Side of the Force" like how a bank is involved in the Block Chain technology?
I really don't like the idea of a manipulated currency. It is already ugly enough to see China devaluing Yuan to play with US, Brazilian government indebting Petrobrás(state company) to control inflation. I really want to stay away from this.
I keep an eye on my digital balances all the time, if I realize some coin I hold is devaluing in an abnormal way, I just switch to another one, no need to peg.... Since I know a little about technical analysis and I always keep an eye on the news and the fundamentals, I don't think I will be taken by surprise on a huge drop.
Regarding the music suggestions, what about Therion? You told me on your AMA you're not so much into metal but come on, that's beautiful:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aU3r_54_34 - Therion - Birth of Venus Illegitima.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_NtCdMdGrg - Therion - The Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MykojAddTfM - Therion - An Arrow From the Sun
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmQ34GL-fzk - My Dying Bride - Two Winters Only
What about the best solo in history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw74sDWPH7U - Steve Vai - "Tender Surrender"
I know, this manipulation is different from government controlling fiat because we're not obligated to use their coin. And they even might be trying to do it right. But the thing is: the problem of central planning. I don't think it's even possible to maintain stability this way, the market is dynamic, it is supposed to move, not be suppressed.
+Lucas T The word "manipulate" has a bad connotation associated. In this sense the Nu network is actually solving a lot of the problems that our current financial system has. It's not random manipulation that occurs. The individuals invested in NuShares control the motion voting and for a motion to pass it must have greater than 50% vote in favor. Harmful supply manipulation would only degrade the value of each shareholders shares. The incentives to provide liquidty for Nubits is inticing. Look into the automated liquidity pools and FLOAT reserves the network is currently utilizing.
Another great informative episode!
Music note: (love the thrash guitar, it suits) these are probably going to pull you more into editing than you want but are royalty free: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=ALGLx1orRGw4WE3Gta_lL0Zuf8nO9KKs_L
Other fun music that carries that Live Free or Die vibe might include (remember licensing issues): Firewater, Gogol Bordello, UNKLE, The Sword... if you'd like more suggestions from a professional give a shout.
You're the best!
For the multisignature reserve group FLOT yes, but Nu also works with liquidity pool operators to maintain the buy and sell walls. Shareholders provide pool operators with a reward. The operator runs a server which tracks and verifies how much liquidity people are providing and the reward automatically gets distributed to people based on this data. They're called automated liquidity pools (ALP). Using this model NuShareholders don't need to know who the liquidity providers are, so they don't need to be trusted. If the operator doesn't fulfill his job requirements then they can simply be replaced by shareholder vote.

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
