    think the old "be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful" probably applies here. might put a little bit in but it's a gamble not an investment at this stage.

    Have done a little to try to understand implications of distributed ledger technology i.e. BlockChain, and by extension cryptocurrencies - I can see the idea is extremely powerful so, providing the security/technology/whatever holds up, I think it will indeed become more important in certain applications.

    Heard about one interesting example (of many), EverLedger, which is used to take a unique 'fingerprint' of every diamond and store that on the blockchain with an Owner id. Everyone on the system (with access to the blockchain) can immediately see that diamond's id in the system and can check any diamonds they receive against the blockchain to see if they're blood diamonds, subject to insurance fraud etc. This is better than a centralised database of these identifiers because it's not corruptible and all records are permanently stored.

    Everledger uses blockchain to stamp out blood diamonds
    In 2000, the UN adopted the Kimberley Process: a rough diamond certification system widely adopted to stamp out the trade of so-called ‘blood diamonds’, by demanding proper documentation for any stones shipped out of 80 selected regions.

    “While the Kimberley Process was a shining moment of success for the diamond industry, the world still relies on paper-based certification,” Kemp told the IBM InterConnect conference in Las Vegas.

    “With this we have real problems: document tampering, fraudulent claims, synthetic stones that are falsely identified, and double financing.”

    Everledger might help combat some of this by offering an immutable, distributed ledger audit trail for traded stones.

    The system records 40 different points of metadata for every rock that has been logged on its blockchain to date.
    There's still plenty I don't understand. One obvious query I have is that you still need a trustworthy organisation to provide the registration of the diamond on the system - what happens if they're not trustworthy? Is there opportunity for fraud there? Don't know.

    In less big-picture thoughts, I'm hoping the prices of cryptocurrences like Ripple, Stratis etc continue fast on their downward path so that I can buy some cheap in a few months. I only started watching them a few months ago when they were already booming, and the animal spirits are in reverse now. Chances are (says me) there will be another mega-hype boom some time in the future so would be nice to hold a few for that eventuality.

    I found it hard to understand the concept of a diamond having a "fingerprint", TBH.

    Isn't it just a bunch of carbon atoms stacked on top of each other in a particular pattern?

    Yes, a pattern, so *ta-da*, can make an ID out of it. They also inscribe serial numbers on the diamond to aid with identification. The other qualities of the actual diamond are recorded presumably to help identify the diamond in case someone tampers with the serial numbers.

    This "thumbprint for each diamond" includes high definition photographs of the laser inscribed serial numbers on their girdle, and details of the cut, carat and colour of the gem.

    Apparently you can't get your money out of this coinbase thing either.

    That's to do with the fork though. I imagine there's nothing untoward going on there.

    Anyways, lesson is - use an e-wallet

    Radiolab has an interesting podcast on the creation of Zcash

    Sounds interesting in theory. Anyone know anything about it?
