Can we all try to keep the chat more informative?As:What are the expectations for V3?What does iExecODB mean?I've been following iExec right from the start and even though the prize is a much talked topic, it does not have to be a main topic. 🙏Price-oriented and trading can be discussed in https://t.me/iexec_trading
https://www.ibm.com/blogs/bluemix/2019/02/announcing-ibm-cloud-data-shield-beta-at-think-2019/iExec has been working with IBM Cloud on DataShield technology. The beta has just been announced at IBM Think 2019.A ‘Zero-Trust’ architecture is essential for iExec V3: Enterprise Edition, ensuring enterprises can run even their most sensitive workloads and datasets on shared hardware at a significantly lower risk.

Right now, all we need is patience... that is the key to investing... If you are holding RLC you already made a great investment decision... But the NEXT best thing you can do now... is wait / accumulate more... Right now the bear market put everything on the table... Many companies collapsed, many got hit with rules and regulations and forced to close... Others are so "afraid" of using their tokens because of laws... You now have companies who created a token, but arent even using it... why? because they are legally afraid to... You have exit scams, and CEO's "raising money" then you wonder why the asset dropped by 98%... Did RLC drop 98%? not even close... not even close
Don't be confused... RLC never really fell in value... Perhaps when you bought, but in comparison to the market it was BARELY impacted. I know because I bought a massive amount of them... and I can compare it to my portfolio at the time of purchase... If you were one of the people who bought RLC at $2... You should be lowering your average, if you haven't... I would... I would have kept lowering my average. "iExec raised the equivalent of $12,158,963 USD making it the 6th largest ICO in history. In total 86,999,784 RLC have been issued and distributed to 1100 contributors."Today we still have 86,999,785 RLC... The fundamental value was never lost, not a bit.. I started buying RLC when it was 40 cents... even pushed it up to about 48 cents doing so.... And this was a long time ago.. Today RLC is 0.27/0.28... not even a 50% drop from my buy-in price... But trust me, most assets were hit dramatically worse during the bear market... I witnessed it... So many 98%, 99% losses with a 24hr volume hitting $0 - <$100 (something you don't want to be in)
People loose money all the time, even in the stock market... because they take aimless guesses, they dont research or they are driven by trends... People to this day are wasting a fortune on "penny stocks"... The key in ANY investment, i don't care where it is... Stocks, a business adventure, or crypto.... it comes down to research... Placing bets in favorable odds and outcomes..Now remember, I said I only look for impressive returns... I dont care about making 100%, or 200% of my money back... I want thousands of %... Now dont let me influence your investment decisions.... This is my experience, my money and my investments... But I sure take my money very very seriously.
Many people wonder... "How do you know if something is undervalued or overvalued?" and this has very little to do with "cash value" and is more based on the intrinsic value / fundamental value... After extensive research you should be comfortable buying an asset without even knowing the price... You should be confident the company will still be around in 10 years..When I researched RLC, the company and team behind it have already been around since 1999... The technology they have developed is already utilized far before the blockchain was invented... In my opinion Giles pretty much invented grid computing with his colleagues. I dont see them going away... I'm not even concerned about it... not the slightest bit. Even if iExec mysteriously got de-listed from Binance... I'm confident mainstream would snatch it up down the road... The biggest risk is the asset class being a "security" vs a "utility" and how this plays out in the future legally.. But this is a risk not just limited to iExec's RLC... But the majority of these assets... So you must understand there is risks in crypto in general... then there is a business evaluation risk... iExec passes with flying colors in my business evaluation.
Have you even read the article you linked? (Intel Software Guard eXtensions (SGX) is a feature found in all modern Intel CPUs that allow developers to isolate applications in secure "enclaves.")You might also want to message Facebook, Github, Telegram also!! They might be at risk if they are using Intel CPUs!! 😂
It's really nice to see the possible uses cases. I think that's the hard part. To really show what iexec can be used for for non-technical people. 🚀 Even if smart cities may seem far away to some people, it should not be forgotten that 20 years ago we barely had the first mobile phones. Who would have thought that one day we would have the equivalent of a computer in our pocket.
Good question. Funny, the term 'dark iExec' 👹 In theory, any (dockerizable) application could be registered to be powered by workers on the iExec network. Even if it is not listed on the iExec Dapp Store - private exchanges of resources and RLC can be facilitated by sharing the 'order' privately.In terms of worker protection, I will need to check with the team about the specifics of that one.
Let us not make a drama of this. The market itself with all the developments is already a tragedy in itself. It takes a certain amount of time for the market to indicate the right direction.Cryptocurrency can already be traded without this having to represent a product. Blockchain itself is not a strong sales tool to provide interconnection to parties, just as example kubernetes can not do this alone. It is what you want to achieve with it. iExec as a company will come up with plans to acquire revenues but it is important that this network does not entail any costs in the chain.
