Libra will be a brand-new currency, in spirit the same thing as a dollar or euro. People will obtain Libras by handing over national currency to organizations such as Calibra, the subsidiary that Facebook is creating to handle Libra transactions.
Denkt de software dat wat het hier genereert een bijpassende volgende alinea zou kunnen zijn (1):
For a limited time there is a 50 percent discount on Libras purchases for anyone who can afford it. If you get a lucky deal in your neighborhood, you could pick up some Libras for free while you’re out of town! With two Libras on the market in this edition, I have no idea where I’ll get my next round of Libras. That said, if you want to learn more about Libra or its history, check out this interview I did with Chris Dickey at Libra: A Very British Experiment.

Voor de tweede keer daar in de website op de ‘Generate another’-knop klikken (2):
Libra will be a brand-new currency, in spirit the same thing as a dollar or euro. People will obtain Libras by handing over national currency to organizations such as Calibra, the subsidiary that Facebook is creating to handle Libra transactions. The new currency will be backed by a reserve that has been created out of the Libra pool as well. Libra will replace the old ERC20 tokens called the Gold Libra which have been available in several forms over the last 20 years. Some people consider the fact that Libra will consist of Gold rather than Euro to be significant, since they were supposed to be backed by Gold when they were introduced in 1999.
Nog een keer (3):
Libra will be a brand-new currency, in spirit the same thing as a dollar or euro. People will obtain Libras by handing over national currency to organizations such as Calibra, the subsidiary that Facebook is creating to handle Libra transactions. Libras will become part of regular transactions on social media and will not simply be purchased with dollars. The currency will be issued in blocks of 10,000 , meaning 10 blocks will be released per person. The currency will then become accepted by members of a social club, for which a member would need to be enrolled at the moment of their libras. For this purpose, Calibra will launch their own Libras application for Mac.
Eat your own dogfood, het hiervoor aangevulde fragment, nr. 3, weer in de website terugplakken (4):
… Calibra will launch their own Libras application for Mac. However, users may purchase Libras using bitcoin, which will enable the use of the currency around the globe within a single location.
The company, along with the founders of Lighthouse Group, have been working for the last few years on the blockchain and are the largest libras marketplace on the bitcoin market, but they were unable to scale their operation because of the lack of the required infrastructure for running a full network. In order to solve this problem, Curated Bitcoin wants to partner with a company specializing in this space, and they think that they’ve come up with a solution on their own. Curated Bitcoin has announced their brand new solution, as they plan to create a platform that will enable the creation of decentralized payments in exchange for Libras.
Met een levensechte nieuwe regel erin nu. Tot slot nog deze tekst (5):
Libra will be a brand-new currency, in spirit the same thing as a dollar or euro. People will obtain Libras by handing over national currency to organizations such as Calibra, the subsidiary that Facebook is creating to handle Libra transactions. Calibra will in turn transfer this money to the Libra Reserve—a group of accounts held by financial custodians around the world. The money that goes into the reserve will be held there or used to buy other currency or low-risk government bonds. Meanwhile, people with Libras can transfer them over the internet, using them to buy things or make gifts. You can exchange your Libras back into a national currency if you need it, with the money coming out of the reserve.
Over dit ‘Machine Learning’-experiment en een paar andere:
OpenAI unveiled a language model called GPT-2 that generates coherent paragraphs of text one word at a time. For now OpenAI has decided only to release small and medium-sized versions of it which aren’t as coherent but still produce interesting results.
While GPT-2 was only trained to predict the next word in a text, it surprisingly learned basic competence in some tasks like translating between languages and answering questions. That’s without ever being told that it would be evaluated on those tasks.
Jan Marco, kan jij als aankomende kunstmatige intelligentie-expert uitmaken welke van de vijf fragmenten in zijn geheel niet daarvandaan kwam maar behoort bij een artikel over de in het leven te roepen Libra munt:
Libra will almost exactly replicate all the problems generated by the company’s social network.
Facebook obviously knows this history. It knows that a fully decentralized Libra would not be usable. But it also knows that the natural solution—a centralized currency controlled by Facebook—would not be trusted. The white paper solves this problem by seizing both horns of the dilemma, claiming that Libra is both decentralized and centralized. Libra is supposedly decentralized because it is based on blockchain, the technology used by bitcoin, which ensures that records are kept by multiple users rather than by one, and in this way enhances security and transparency.
Opnieuw OpenAI/GPT-2 in een mini jam session met een “coherente paragraaf” of twee laten komen?
But Facebook claims that, as a social media system, it has no authority over who can publish information, and in fact is supposed to be merely “an archive” of that information. So Libra cannot be decentralized (and, as the paper makes clear, it cannot be trusted to be.)
But since the paper doesn’t mention any third party (except, possibly, Facebook) to act on its behalf it is hard to say which is right. And since many think that the Libra system is going to come to blows with both the main blockchain and the Facebook one, it may very well not be decentralized at all.
The white paper says Libra is decentralized since it relies on the Bitcoin Core block chain, which Facebook insists is the right implementation.
Nee, dit is van The Verge, theverge.com, “Libra, explained, Move fast and bank things.”
Terug naar de vlees-en-bloed-professor ‘at the University of Chicago Law School’ in dat eerste artikel:
Facebook itself will not operate Libra. But Libra is also centralized via the creation of a governance body. That body is the Libra Association, to be located in Switzerland. This body is supposed to prevent the emergence of a bitcoinlike oligarchy to rule over Libra.
But it’s hardly clear that, in practice, the Libra Association will act any differently from the oligarchy that dominates the bitcoin world. The white paper provides a few details about how the Libra Association will work. It currently has 28 members, with that number expected to rise to 100. (To get the system started, the members put money in the Libra Reserve, which will enable the creation and circulation of an initial pot of Libras.) Major policy decisions will be made by a two-thirds vote. A small number of nonprofits are given slots, but the majority of members are large profit-making corporations, including PayPal, Facebook/Calibra, Uber, Visa, Mastercard, the telecommunications firm Vodafone, and various venture-capital powerhouses. Ordinary people who buy and use Libras have no votes.
