The Crypto Show: Brian Eha „How Money Got Free“ & Joel Valenzuela Dashforce News

On tonight’s episode of „The Crypto Show,“ we talk to our first-hour guest journalist and author Brian Patrick Eha about his new book „How Money Got Free: Bitcoin and the Fight for the Future of FInance,“ We discuss his background in journalism and how he first got into crypto,, and then he details the circumstances surrounding the first article about Bitcoin that he ever wrote, for which he interviewed the likes of Charlie Shrem, Ira Miller, Erik Voorhees, Roger Ver, and others during their days at BitInstant, and which article became the basis for his current book. We discuss media bias and distortion when it comes to Bitcoin and major Bitcoin players, and we have a conversation about the philosophy and economics behind BItcoin. We then fast-forward to get his take on the future of Bitcoin in light of the block-size issue and other things, and as well as on the viability and usefulness of altcoins.

In the second hour we interview Joel Valuenzela of Dash Force, one of the new Dash „sub-DAO’s,“ and its related Youtube channel, „Dash Force News.“ We discuss his long-standing Austrian School/sound money background as well as his entry into crypto, and he explains why is such a strong believer in Dash and why and how he got more directly involved in the Dash digital cash project. He turns us on to Bitcart.io, in which you can buy Amazon.com giftcards for a 15% discount but only using Dash, and he informs us about the number and types of businesses that already accept Dash, a surprisingly large number. He also briefly details how he lives on Dash alone. Danny also joins us from his second trip across the country to promote Dash and crypto to cannabis businesses, while he gives us a brief rundown of the current cannabis conference he is attending.

Mobile AR Game Reality Clash Announces Token Sale With ERC-20 Armory

reality clash logo21st July, London, UK, Reality Gaming Group has announced Reality Clash, the world’s first augmented reality combat game for iPhone and Andriod, taking mobile combat games to an entirely new level.

21st July, London, UK, Reality Gaming Group has announced Reality Clash, the world’s first augmented reality combat game for iPhone and Andriod, taking mobile combat games to an entirely new level. Familiar places are now your battle fields and the people in your surroundings are either your allies or enemies. Reality Clash will now offer its in-game currency RCC at a token sale in August, allowing early participants to take control of exclusive weaponry that they can use in the game or trade on.

The free-to-play game will use the phone’s camera to render an AR view of the world on-screen, with geolocation gameplay inviting players to enter face-to-face combat with each other in real time and real locations – they can invite friends, join tournaments and set up battles in urban areas, parks and woodlands. Players will build and protect their own headquarters, defend territory and explore their surroundings, with the ultimate goal of conquering their own city. They will also be able to visit locations in the real world to collect ammo, health packs and add-ons.

As well as switching between available weapons during combat, players will be able to speculate on in-game items and become virtual arms dealers using Reality Clash Coins (RCC), which can be traded on the Reality Clash platform or secondary markets.

To fund the development of the game, Reality Gaming Group is embarking on an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) using Ethereum blockchain technologies, from which it aims to raise a minimum of $1.5 million. The ICO opens fully on August 29th, following an initial pre-sale period for the investment community. It will give gamers the chance to buy special RCC Gold tokens at the rate of only 1/30 of the regular RCC price, obtain exclusive weapons that will never be available again, plus earn access to special tournaments and extras.

The special ICO weapons will be available from November 1st 2017 and can either be used in the game at launch or traded and sold through the Reality Clash platform, or secondary markets immediately for money. Crucially, all in-game content will be ERC-20 tokenized with a Blockchain-based trust list.

Tony Pearce, Reality Gaming Group co-founder, said: “Reality Clash is a tremendously innovative game that also gives gamers a unique opportunity to get into the fast-moving world of ICOs and crypto-currency trading. Players can speculate on weapons and become a virtual arms dealer, or simply enjoy a tactical advantage by playing the game. Reality Clash was created and crafted by people who truly love video games and understand what players want.”

Reality Clash will be available for iPhone and Android devices in 3Q 2018. More information about Reality Clash, the ICO process and Ethereum blockchain can be found at: http://reality-clash.com. The teaser trailer is out now: https://vimeo.com/210474982

UK Court Nixes $17 Billion Antitrust Suit Against MasterCard

MasterCard has set operations rules to charge merchants higher interchange fees than it would be in a competitive market.

The U.K.’s Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) has dismissed a $17.2 billion consumer antitrust suit against MasterCard over allegedly overcharging millions of UK customers between 1992 and 2008.

The British court ruled that the suit cannot be brought under the collective action regime. The panel wrote: “Pass-through cannot be described as a common issue in any meaningful sense. The level of individual spend is manifestly not a common issue.”

In determining the acceptance of a collective action lawsuit, the tribunal considers whether there is anything particularly unique and can’t be addressed in individual complaints.

The tribunal panel added in the decision: “We are not satisfied, and indeed very much doubt, that the claims are suitable for an aggregate award of damages. There is no plausible way of reaching even a very rough-and-ready approximation of the loss suffered by each individual claimant from the aggregate loss calculated according to the applicant’s proposed method.”

The lawsuit, filed by former head of financial services ombudsman Walter Merricks, challenges the control of the credit card association on so-called interchange fees. The term refers to the bank-to-bank fees set by Mastercard on merchants’ banks to cover the costs of its card services.

Merricks, on behalf of millions of UK consumers, claims that MasterCard has set operations rules to charge merchants higher interchange fees than the customers would have paid or retailers would have tolerated in a competitive market.

In his lawsuit, Merricks said the network rules adopted by Mastercard aimed to earn the company higher fees, but were ultimately passed on through increased prices to all buyers, including those who paid in cash and not just the card users.

Merricks expressed his disappointment with the decision and said that he will move forwad with appealing against the ruling.

He commented: “The new collective action regime was introduced by the Consumer Rights Act to overcome the difficulty for consumers seeking to recover losses from competition law infringements. I am concerned that this new regime, designed to benefit consumers, may never get off the ground.”

A spokesman for MasterCard welcomed the ruling and said: “As set out in Mastercard’s arguments to date we believe that the claims were completely unsuitable to be brought under the collective actions regime.
