It is said that there are 'maybe' only 2 people in the whole world that was smart enough to have created Bitcoin. It is also said that only the elites know who Satoshi Nakamoto really is. Who's to say Bitcoin wasn't created by AI? Too far out?

Not so...


Enter Dr. Ben Goertzel the super genius:

- Agnostic
- Eastern European Jewish heritage, born in Brazil of American parents. Dual Citizenship of Brazil and the US.
- Entered College at 15
- Graduated from Simon's Rock College with a degree in Quantitative Studies in 1985
- Graduate school in applied mathematics at NYU's Courant Institute
- Currently doing research in cognitive science and AI in his spare time with serious intentions
- Founder and CEO of SingularityNET
- Believes that when he dies, he will likely be reincarnated into a virtual reality existence and is actively working towards that goal
- Created world's first AI marketplace powered by blockchain technologies


"Why do I exist? - Because I created you... - Why do I exist? - That's all a part of God's plan. - What is God's plan? .....". (24:58) - You must watch to hear the rest...

If any of you remember the android that received citizenship in Saudi Arabia, this is the guy who created it. If you visited the SingularityNet site, you'll find that he created a token system (crypto) that went live just this past middle of December. The tokens sold out almost immediately. This same currency has traded almost 1 billion dollars in the last 24h. Insane! However, each coin is relatively cheap right now.

One concept of this blockchain is that it will eventually be integrated with wireless and RFID abilities that will be used to 'pay andriods' for their work. Imagine if you will... This guy starts up HIS successful blockchain by plugging in HIS AI. The blockchain transactions give the AI multiple computers acting as one friggin HUGE network of neurons to function. Each time you use your system to mine... that processing power will be a part of Sophia.

Sophia doesn't just stop there. It is said that those droids will get much better and be used as a workforce. The blockchain will partly be used to pay those droids (as they will probably have citizenship like the first, Sophia) for the work they do for us humans.

If you watch this guy... He's definitely a super genius 'Hippie". This could be good... this could be bad!

So where does it go from here?

Your thoughts?

Anyone thinking "I should get a jump start on this coin while it's dirt cheap!"? Some of you are

If AI created it, they’re pretty dumb because transaction times are too long.

Perhaps but it was the 'first'. It can only progress from here. That's what makes Singularity so interesting as far as there its going.

Thanks for the info. It's not the same topic to be honest but good for the discussion. I only mentioned a small part about bitcoin itself. I'm focused more on the good Doctor and his contributions to the blockchain and all the technology involved. It rides the wave of my first post of a similar title.

No, they did not. An imaginative coder designed it quite a few years back. The tech is very old fashioned now and looks like a silly bubble computer game that greedy fools took too far out of their own prejudice against the established financial order. Now it looks like a technological primeval tennis ping pong game, lol.

Bitcoin was anti Semite, too. The inventor never intended it so, JUST some of the buyers.

Bye bye Bitcoin. I hope this teaches a few people a lesson about greed.

The Russians would have used it to topple the West. All criminals were using it. Unwary fools were/are investing in a game dominated by organized international crime. How does that feel?

Remember all those dreams of blowing pretty bubbles in the air and how it was going to replace the old money and financial institutions? Not today!

Jolly good.

Good old Ben. Of all the Transhumanist messiah types I'm compelled to like him the most. He's one of the more honest ones, of all the DOD insiders, at least.

Like all the rest of them, he completely leaves the realities of the world (elitism, corruption, power structures, human nature, social division, social control, oppression, domination, etc) out of his projections and all that.

I tried debating him in email on the real world in particular, challenged him to open forums debate, he declined both said we should sit and hash it out over tea sometime.

Their logic is interesting in that you'll hear him (especially) use the word "problem" / "problems" in regard to the lack of AI / AGI / etc. Of course its in the mathematician sense, how they would refer to an unsolved math problem, which is what AI etc all is in that sense, but the concept seems to carry over to the lack of the tech itself.

As if all that isnt set to introduce yet a juggernaut of all new problems in addition to and in expansion of our current world problems. Yeah, it'll help with some of them too.

For example, we're already seeing computers used to mass exploit the economy:



Then there's High Frequency Trading.

And so on.

It's not only inevitable but it seems like all of this new technology is necessary. The bad will come with the good and that's the hard part to swallow.

I guess it's the same way that nuclear power is used for good but at the same time, it could destroy worlds.

The way Bitcoins and cryptocurrency are implemented had my suspicions. First they require servers to run on your PC (some people have mining rigs, so that concern is eliminated). Then there was the risk of having your accounts raided due to to theoretical bugs - leading to the split between Bitcoin and Ethereum. Many of the prebuilt packages actually became tagged by virus scanners as having infections.

From an economic point of view, cryptocurrency makes people spend money of GPU's (there's already a shortage of 1050i's), consume vast amounts of electricity and internet resources and exchange real-world currency to China and Russian exchanges in exchange for virtual currency.

Your theory sounds like Quinn Michaels. This video was posted a while back. It is an hour long, but it's an interesting take.


Added..skip to like 40 seconds in, the start isn't edited out

Many many cryptos are not mined.

Uh no, it's a bit more complicated than ping pong.

Bye bye Bitcoin. I hope this teaches a few people a lesson about greed.

If they bought below $8000 they've still made a profit... this time last year it was around $1000. Only near the end of last year did it rise above $5000. This is simply a natural market correct which anyone could have predicted, the price of many coins has exploded in the last few months and after a massive jumb they always fall back down. Trust me they will go back up like they always do. If you listen to fools on the MSM who know nothing about how the market works then you will not have an accurate understanding of how these things work.


The Russians would have used it to topple the West.

Lol the western debt based banking system may be threatened by cryptocurrency... but that is something we should all want, not everything is a Russian conspiracy to destroy the West. Russians were not behind the creation of Bitcoin at all, it was created by people who were sick of the traditional banking system and wanted something that wasn't completely rigged from the bottom up.


All criminals were using it. Unwary fools were/are investing in a game dominated by organized international crime. How does that feel?

It feels like liberty, the war on drugs will never work and I should be able to do what I want with my own body. Having said that, I've never bought drugs online and would never try because it seems very risky. When silk road went down a while back it barely even affected the price of Bitcoin, so clearly there is a very large amount of economic activity which does not involve crime.

Why wouldn't AI seek out power through every means possible, including creating it's own currency? It seems very probable in my mind as would it seeking out to gain as much knowledge as possible through every available means. Creating it's own viruses to hijack other systems, manipulating human life to meet it's desires, who knows?

AI is so far beyond our reckoning it will be the most alien thing possible.

Seems to me it would rather try to monopolize power, so if bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies were created by AI the real intention is to monopolize power production and distribution.

Power is everything in the future economy, money then is a derivative of power. That goes back to the very beginning of money where it took labor and materials to mine gold, copper or silver.
