Zoom Meeting
01 The Speech Session of CPChain Global Community Managers
  1. Korea Community Administrator, Kim YoungA

Kim YoungA
Hello everyone, I am CPChain Korea Community Administrator Kim YoungA. CPChain Korean KaKao community was established in early September. After the establishment of the community, we have organized online AMA and community airdrop activities, and we have received positive responses from our community users. Now, the KaKao community has more than one thousand members.
KaKao is a Korean social software that is currently used in more than 200 countries and it supports 12 languages. The KaKao community users are very diversified and the users are also very active. In the following three months, we will promote our CPChain community through various publicity channels to make CPChain Korea community stronger. We hope that the number of community members will be 2 or 3 times more than it is now.
According to the statistics, there are more than 4.5 millions Korean people who are crypto-currency holders. One in ten Koreans has been exposed to crypto currency and there are more than 72% among them are young people. Meanwhile, the fourth Industrial Revolutionary Committee of Korea has mentioned blockchain in the report: In the next Internet development wave, blockchain technology is closely related to national security, and it is necessary to strive to develop the Korean blockchain industry.
Therefore, CPChain community promotion in Korea has great potential of development. The Korean community prefers off-site communication. In the future, we will organize off-site meet up event according to the time of CPChain listing in Korean mainstream exchanges and we will also cooperate with the mainstream media channels and Korean blockchain authorities and experts to discuss cooperation and to promote CPChain in order to expand CPChain’s popularity in the Korean market. In addition, we will learn from other projects in Korea to develop CPChain Korean KaKao community through multi-channels and in various forms.
Thank you!
  1. Africa Community Manager, Hola

Hola
Hello. My name is Hola, I am the African CPChain community manager and I'm from Nigeria. First of all, I am very grateful for CPChain team for giving African community a good opportunity. The community development is really fast and there are many crypto currency enthusiast, investors and partners who have joined the Africa community.
Currently we have 630 members in the CPChain Africa community and we will expand CPChain community in other Africa regions in the future. African countries are no strangers to the use of digital solutions as a way to transfer money, nor to the rapid implementations of blockchain technologies. Blockchain technology adoption has been increased in Africa, for example, some countries in Africa already have Bitcoin ATM machines, like South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and other countries.
CPChain is going to organize an event in Nigeria, we are looking forward to this event. Our prospective partners and investors are very pleased with the solution we proposed. I am quite confident that they will adopt and understand it easily. Again, I am very grateful that CPChain team has expanded their products to Africa. I believe that Africa companies and related organizations will welcome this technology.
Thank you very much!
  1. Turkish Community Manager, Refik Yilmaz

Refik Yilmaz
I am Refik Yılmaz and I am the Turkish community manager. Being a part of the CPChain team makes me feel happy. If we analyze the general network traffic of crypto currency, we can see clearly that Turkey plays a major role in creating these traffics. At the same time, there is a Turkey exchange which has become a sponsor of a local football team and there is also a sport token which has established partnership with a local football team.
All these facts have given us a clear insight about the enthusiasm of Turkish people to crypto currency and Turkey people see it as a visionary project. CPChain has seen the enthusiasm of these people thus we create a community to provide information and support to them using local language. The efforts that CPChain has made to enter Turkey market has indicates that CPChain is a long-lasting trustworthy project.
Regarding to the community, instead of pumping it with passive members, we has made it an active group which is now expanding steadily with the growth of active users. We are confident to say that we are doing a good job.
In addition, there are many users who have helped us voluntarily to develop the CPChain community in Turkey, such as voting for binance dex or doing promotion activities on twitter. There are members who have joined CPChain for nearly one and a half year. Of course, there are still many other things that we can do for CPChain. So we will continue brainstorming with community members and we are open to collaborate with people from local society as well as the other communities. CPChain with its recent updates (CPCAC conference, partnerships and its IOT vision) has shown us that it is a promising project.
Thank you!
02 The Speech Session of CPChain Co-founder and COO, Shi Qingwei

Shi Qingwei
Hello everyone, I am glad to join the community governance conference again. I am Shi Qingwei, the co-founder and the COO of CPChain. First of all, I would like to thank Node Pacific for the well-organized preparation. The second Community Governance Conference has been proceeded as scheduled. After listening to the speeches of our Turkish, Africa and Korea community managers, I am quite touched.
People say that consensus is a key part of blockchain. But what kinds of consensus is it? On the one hand, it is a technical consensus which is the basic for the decentralization of blockchain; on the other hand, it is an ecology consensus which shows community members’ understanding and recognition to the mission and vision of CPChain and it has become an important indicator for the construction of ecological viscosity and user loyalty.
Three community managers have shared with us respectively what their ideal local community is like, how to plan and organize activities and how to maximize positive brand exposure in local community. You can really feel their belief and passion for the project from their talks. I think it is from their recognition to the value and concept of CPChian. We are very appreciated of that. We will start to plan the next Market Entry strategy with these local communities after the National Day.
With today’s opportunity, I would like to talk with you guys about the next step of the Foundation in global community construction. Most of you have seen that many localized communities of CPChain have been built gradually. There are hundreds of fans in both Africa and Turkish communities and there are more than 1000 fans in Korea community. Although these are not large in scale, they are very active communities and they use their own languages.
It is an attempt by us to build up global communities. It is low-cost, more user-friendly and the communication cost is reduced because of the use of local languages. Currently, these communities have achieved pure organic growth in principle. Considering the present market environment, we haven’t planned much promotion activities to boost the user growth. We are glad to see high-quality communication activities in these communities.
In the view of the successful launch of Korea, Turkish and Africa communities, the Foundation hopes to accelerate the construction of other CPChain localized communities. Therefore, we would like to take this chance to invite CPChain eco users to join the global community development project with us. We will send the official mission victory link to the public after the National Day which is around the corner.
By the time you can tell us what kinds of community you can do and what resources you have. The Foundation will make assessment to the proposals accordingly. Once we have decided which markets we are going to enter, we will cooperate with the proposers and give them appropriate rewards. We are now considering to build Arabic and Russia communities. But of course you are welcome to share your ideas with us.
03 Free discussion
Q1: What will the official team do to support the construction of overseas communities?
CPChain Wayne: I would like to emphasize that we see CPChain as a participant of the construction of global community rather than the director. CPChain community is a decentralized community. Everyone is welcome to make contribution and everyone is also a part of the decision makers. We will give financial support to the overseas communities, such as bounty and candy rewards. We will launch our global community construction plan after the National Day. Proposers can show us what resources, what language and what kinds of promotion plan you are able to do in the proposal. We will invite qualified proposers to help building the community and to increase the popularity of CPChain in the local society. After the implementation of the CPChain Global Community Construction Plan, we will offer help and support to the community contributors. We are open to all kinds of ideas and we will select the good advice from them.
Q2 : What kinds of rewards CPChain will offer to the community contributors, such as proposer, resource provider?
CPChain Wayne: We will have online and offline rewards. For most of the overseas community builders, we will deliver online rewards at the very beginning, such as airdrop and candy rewards. Let me take Africa Community as an example, the Africa community has experienced an organic growth during the past three weeks and it has more than 600 members at the moment. When the scale of the community has reached to a certain level like Africa communiyu, we think it is a good timing for us to launch offline rewards, such as meetup activity. Everyone who has made contribution to the community, for example, people who share resources, introduce partners or make good translation, is qualified to be awarded. They deserve it. We wouldn’t be hesitant to give them rewards.
Q3 : What is the next step for the Africa community future development?
Hola: We are now planing to promote our community through social media, such as Lindedin, Twitter, Telegram and so on. We also plan to organize events to attract investors and partners. The Africa community is growing fast every day and it is an active community. I believe that the Africa community will have a solid development. We will have an event which is scheduled to held in December or January with the aim of increasing people knowledge of Blockchain and CPChain project.
Q4 : When will CPChain be listed on Binance? Or what exchanges CPChain is going to be listed?
CPChain Wayne: Currently, we are applying to be listed on the exchanges. Binance is one of our applications. We are also applying for two top-tier exchanges but we couldn’t tell their names yet. We hope we can have some good news after the National Day. Huobi and OKcoin are two excellent exchanges but CPChain is not ready to be listed on these two exchanges since it will cost a lot. We will put them in our backup choices. We hope to be listed on big exchanges like Binance through DEX.
Q5 : What are your motivations to start CPChain project?
CPChain Wayne: First of all, I want to clarify that I am not the founder of CPChain project. I am not qualified to take the credits. The founder of CPChain is Dr. Long who has great vision about it. He believes that Blockchain is the chosen technology and it can solve the problems caused by the centralized system. He started CPChain in 2018 when the Bitcoin is worth of $ 20,000. And it is also the peak moment of the development of Blockchain technology. People are passionate about it and regard it as the game-changing technology. After the ups and downs of the blockchain market, the power that keeps pushing us forward is our belief in the CPChain. One of the good things of our team is that we constantly learn from our mistakes. We have never neglected the power of our community and we really hope that we can rely on our community to do the ecology construction. Thank you!

Medium article from fellow BAT Community member, Daniel Colin James: “The Attention Revolution: Your next browser will pay you”
You’re about to witness a movement that will make the shift from desktop to mobile look boring. Google and Facebook amass staggering amounts of money by harvesting your data and charging advertisers for your attention, but that’s going to change very soon.
The power is about to shift from the tech giants of Silicon Valley to the foot soldiers of the internet: me and you.

Brave Team Tweets:

Not a tweet: Brendan posts on Hacker News how each user could potentially earn in just two years
I would not be surprised if our users can make $70/year as we bring the system up in 2019 -- when ad deals will be harder to come by and we'll subsidize revenue from BAT's User Growth Pool -- and climb by 2020 to above .7 * 320 or $224 net user revenue per year. See the full comment here:

Brave lacks a communication channel between the author and browser user… For now. :)
Hello @bobpoekert Replying to @BrendanEich @brave but what it doesn't have (and what makes patreon different from flattr) is a special communication channel between the author and the consumer. people give money to patreon because they feel a personal connection to the author & patreon optimizes for that
BrendanEich @BrendanEich We are working on that -- has to support 'nyms of course, and be opt-in for anonymity by default. 11:52 PM - Sep 19, 2018
Conlan Rios @conlan @BrendanEich random shower thought: would be cool if users could share domain(s) that they've pinned with their active monthly % allocation. The digital equivalent of a bumper sticking saying "I'm a proud supporter of radio station/newspape affiliation X".
BrendanEich @BrendanEich Yes, this and sharing bravestats (the colored numbers of blocked/upgraded on new tab page) are great ideas. Putting into mix with Product folks. 7:17 PM - Sep 18, 2018
 

BAT/Brave in the News:

As Brave Gears Up to Weaponize Privacy, Google Becomes Its Primary Target
Representatives of Brave, the Open Rights Group and University College London filed simultaneous complaints with Data Protection Authorities (DPA) in the U.K. and Ireland under GDPR rules. The concerned parties are seeking a pan-European investigation into the practices of just about every ad-tech company—Google, in particular—in a challenge that will have far-reaching implications for the media business if successful.

Popular Science Features Brave in the article “Ditch your phone's built-in web browser for these seven alternatives”
We do a lot of our web browsing through our phones: More than half of site visits originate with mobile devices. Android and iOS phones both come with default browsers made by the platform's developers. On Android, Google Chrome takes pride of place, while iPhones and iPads rely on pre-installed versions of Apple's Safari. However, these are far from your only choices. Just like your computer, your phone offers a variety of options to help you navigate the internet. We collected seven feature-packed web browsers that protect your privacy, reduce your data use, boost your speed, and more.
https://www.popsci.com/alternative-phone-browsers
 

News You Should Know:

Apple moves to thwart Facebook tracking
Facebook and other companies routinely track your online surfing habits to better target ads at you. Two web browsers now want to help you fight back in what’s becoming an escalating privacy arms race. New protections in Apple’s Safari and Mozilla’s Firefox browsers aim to prevent companies from turning “cookie” data files used to store sign-in details and preferences into broader trackers that take note of what you read, watch and research on other sites.
https://mashable.com/article/apple-safari-browser-block-facebook-cookies/
 
Uninformed Consent
Technology has advanced far beyond the browser cookies and retargeting that allow ads to follow us around the internet. Smartphones now track our physical location and proximity to other people — and, as researchers recently discovered, can even do so when we turn off location services. We can disable the tracking on our web browsers, but our digital fingerprints can still be connected across devices, enabling our identities to be sleuthed out. Home assistants like Alexa listen to our conversations and, when activated, record what we’re saying.
A growing range of everyday things — from Barbie dolls to medical devices — connect to the internet and transmit information about our movements, our behavior, our preferences, and even our health. A dominant web business model today is to amass as much data on individuals as possible and then use it or sell it — to target or persuade, reward or penalize. The internet has become a surveillance economy.

A very interesting people here in Kiev. In the city center, I would say 50% speak English and 30% speak English well - the large majority speak Russian. My Uber driver from the airport spoke no English. 5 of my 12 days in Kiev I spent handing out fliers for the Monero Event I hosted. I passed out 300 fliers, interacting with at least 1000+ people in this process. Of the people I interacted with, 20% were familiar with Bitcoin and a significant percent of that group were enthusiastic about cryptocurrencies.
Independence Square
The main areas in Kiev are all accessible by foot. It was not unusual for me to walk 4 miles in one day passing out fliers, walking from people cluster to people cluster. There are several main areas of where people congregate:
  • From Arena City to Independance Square along Khreshchatyk Street
  • Near the National University Of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy
  • From Vozdvyzhenka to St. Andrew's Church
  • The Gulliver Mall
  • UBK Beach
People's Friendship Arch View
This is the flier I passed out to 300 people
Additionally the Blockchain Hub hosted an event on 17.7.18 that I went to where I made some new friends and advertised the meetup I was organizing. One of those friends spent 8 hours helping me translate my English Monero Presentation into Russian. Here is the link to the Google Slides English/Russian Presentation. I would say I spent a solid 20 hours working on the presentation. On the days I passed out fliers, I would alternate between 3 hours of passing out fliers and 3 hours inside working on the presentation.
I passed out fliers from 17.7.18 until 21.7.18. For every flier that I successfully passed out, I had on average 2 people reject the flier on the basis of disinterest, no interest, or language barrier. Most of the 300 fliers were passed out to groups of size 2-3. Many of the people who accepted the flier were also excited about cryptocurrency, said they would attend, and asked for another flier to give to their friend.
Seven people showed up to the event. Most of these 7 came either directly from the Blockchain Hub event or were a friend that those same people brought. No one that I gave a flier to came to the event. I have a recording of the event but the quality is actually quite poor. The recording does include the post-presentation discussion where I answered deeper questions about how Bitcoin works and how maybe at some point in the future the price of Bitcoin might closely correlate with the price of energy. I was explaining all this and technical functions like Bitcoin nonce hashing to a Russian only speaking attendee through my friend who would translate English/Russian. It was very helpful that my friend already has a solid foundation in how cryptocurrencies work.
Next stop on my trip is Brussels, Belgium where I hope to build from this Monero Mission trip and further spread the good word of Monero.

Introducing KAMBRIA - A Platform that Fuels Robotics & AI Future

KAMBRIA - Fueling the Robotics & AI Future
Overview
Our mission is to accelerate the process of robotics innovation, enabling faster, cheaper, and easier robotics development and adoption by everyone.
In order to achieve this vision, we are contributing our robot Ohmni, consisting of a robotics repository, high level behavioral library, and modular components as the basis for an open robotics innovation platform.
We named the platform Kambria, after the Cambrian Explosion, 500 million years ago, when an accelerated evolutionary rate gave rise to biodiversity and abundance. We believe this platform will be the catalyst for a similar explosion in Robotics.
Technology
The Kambria Architecture is made up of five pillars: Codebase (KDNA), innovation marketplace, the manufacturing alliance, value capture, and legal protection. Each directly addresses the shortfalls of modern robotics and is designed to maximize the game theoretic incentives.
Interactions on the platform are facilitated by the Kambria Token (KAT), Maker Credit, and Kambria Karma. KAT is a native ERC20 utility token. Its main functions are to enable access to the Kambria platform, reward participation, and align incentives for all stakeholders in the ecosystem. As with any ERC20, KAT will be listed on exchanges and can be traded for other cryptocurrencies.
Maker Credit and Kambria Karma are not ERC20 tokens, but rather non-tradeable ledger entries for every wallet address. Karma is used to track actual work performed. It is also an incentive to promote useful work and is awarded for concrete contributions. Credit is similar to reward point or "cash back”. Its purpose is to stimulate transactions and spendings in the ecosystem.
Users Benefit from Kambria Increase innovation rate Large scale reuse and sharing of technology can reduce costs and make robots more affordable Robotics technology as a social good, accessible to everyone
Token Holder Perks Program
A large community of roboticists together is valuable resource. Based on this, the Kambria Foundation will negotiate and manage a perks program for all token holders, such as discounted access to makerspaces, coworking spaces, or parts/tools/supplies.
To participate in the program, you only need to hold a minimum of one KAT in a wallet and be able to validate ownership of that wallet. Subsequent tiers ($500+, etc.) will give you access to additional perks/discounts as the Foundation negotiate them. More details will be announced in the future.
Phases and Milestones
January 2018 - May 2018: Kambria Alpha Deploy key smart contracts on testnet. Have GitHub repos linkable to the testnet contracts. Open up OhmniLabs’ 3d printing and waterjet aluminum processes to ensure KDNA orders are fabricated into real world parts as fast as possible. Work with roboticists and groups around the world to start sharing KDNA and evolving the tools and processes as needed. Ohmni robots available to order as a base platform. Continue building out APIs and SDKs based on needs and engage other roboticists in guiding the development. Start initial bounties for add-ons, enhancements and other valuable technology contributions to Kambria. These may start off-chain and move to on-chain once the smart contracts are ready.
June 2018 - December 2018: Kambria Beta Open up smart contracts on mainnet. Open up major subcomponents of Ohmni with appropriate licensing transferred from OhmniLabs. Motor drives, touchscreen and display, USB, embedded system, battery charging, vision algorithms, etc. Be able to view these pieces (and those contributed by others) in the code base and remix/work on integrating them into new forms. Collaborate with other teams on demos showing what can be created. Receive real KDNA or fiat orders for these parts on the main chain and send back completed parts. Issue some initial real bounties on mainnet and start bringing the new technology into Kambria codebase for all to share.
Q1 2019: Full release Full release of Ohmni in the Kambria codebase. Entire KDNA and open for full remixing. All bounty systems and Dapps active, released, and usable.

Introducing KAMBRIA - A Platform that Fuels Robotics & AI Future

KAMBRIA - Fueling the Robotics & AI Future
Overview
Our mission is to accelerate the process of robotics innovation, enabling faster, cheaper, and easier robotics development and adoption by everyone.
In order to achieve this vision, we are contributing our robot Ohmni, consisting of a robotics repository, high level behavioral library, and modular components as the basis for an open robotics innovation platform.
We named the platform Kambria, after the Cambrian Explosion, 500 million years ago, when an accelerated evolutionary rate gave rise to biodiversity and abundance. We believe this platform will be the catalyst for a similar explosion in Robotics.
Technology
The Kambria Architecture is made up of five pillars: Codebase (KDNA), innovation marketplace, the manufacturing alliance, value capture, and legal protection. Each directly addresses the shortfalls of modern robotics and is designed to maximize the game theoretic incentives.
Interactions on the platform are facilitated by the Kambria Token (KAT), Maker Credit, and Kambria Karma. KAT is a native ERC20 utility token. Its main functions are to enable access to the Kambria platform, reward participation, and align incentives for all stakeholders in the ecosystem. As with any ERC20, KAT will be listed on exchanges and can be traded for other cryptocurrencies.
Maker Credit and Kambria Karma are not ERC20 tokens, but rather non-tradeable ledger entries for every wallet address. Karma is used to track actual work performed. It is also an incentive to promote useful work and is awarded for concrete contributions. Credit is similar to reward point or "cash back”. Its purpose is to stimulate transactions and spendings in the ecosystem.
Users Benefit from Kambria Increase innovation rate Large scale reuse and sharing of technology can reduce costs and make robots more affordable Robotics technology as a social good, accessible to everyone
Token Holder Perks Program
A large community of roboticists together is valuable resource. Based on this, the Kambria Foundation will negotiate and manage a perks program for all token holders, such as discounted access to makerspaces, coworking spaces, or parts/tools/supplies.
To participate in the program, you only need to hold a minimum of one KAT in a wallet and be able to validate ownership of that wallet. Subsequent tiers ($500+, etc.) will give you access to additional perks/discounts as the Foundation negotiate them. More details will be announced in the future.
Phases and Milestones
January 2018 - May 2018: Kambria Alpha Deploy key smart contracts on testnet. Have GitHub repos linkable to the testnet contracts. Open up OhmniLabs’ 3d printing and waterjet aluminum processes to ensure KDNA orders are fabricated into real world parts as fast as possible. Work with roboticists and groups around the world to start sharing KDNA and evolving the tools and processes as needed. Ohmni robots available to order as a base platform. Continue building out APIs and SDKs based on needs and engage other roboticists in guiding the development. Start initial bounties for add-ons, enhancements and other valuable technology contributions to Kambria. These may start off-chain and move to on-chain once the smart contracts are ready.
June 2018 - December 2018: Kambria Beta Open up smart contracts on mainnet. Open up major subcomponents of Ohmni with appropriate licensing transferred from OhmniLabs. Motor drives, touchscreen and display, USB, embedded system, battery charging, vision algorithms, etc. Be able to view these pieces (and those contributed by others) in the code base and remix/work on integrating them into new forms. Collaborate with other teams on demos showing what can be created. Receive real KDNA or fiat orders for these parts on the main chain and send back completed parts. Issue some initial real bounties on mainnet and start bringing the new technology into Kambria codebase for all to share.
Q1 2019: Full release Full release of Ohmni in the Kambria codebase. Entire KDNA and open for full remixing. All bounty systems and Dapps active, released, and usable.
