CloudCoin Wallet officially released; "learn and earn" referral program launched
CloudCoin Wallet was officially released this week, as detailed in our special CloudCoin Bulletin message from Sean Worthington.
The new software can be downloaded here , along with links to a handbook and video tutorial.
A fun "learn and earn" program has been launched to reward users for downloading the software, learning about its functionality and providing feedback. There are additional opportunities to earn CloudCoins by sharing your experiences with friends and through social media.
The most exciting feature of the new CloudCoin Wallet client software is the addition of innovative SkyWallets , the first non-cryptographic ledger system with data supremacy.
Skywallets offer users important functionality:
CloudCoins can now be sent from person-to-person without needing email or other file transfer systems. These transfers will take less than two seconds.
Both senders and receivers will know the coins being sent are valid, creating trusted trades.
Skywallet allows for easily an remembered address, like "Maria.CloudCoin.global," which is much less complicated than a Bitcoin address, like "1PMycacnJaSqwwJqjawXBErnLsZ7RkXUAs."
The change-making system is now fully automated. This is something unique to CloudCoin because only CloudCoin is discrete and has denominations. CloudCoin has now proven that digital currencies can have denominations and are more efficient because of it.
Skywallets make it much easier to create liquidity applications, including those for exchanges, stores, merchant websites, tokenization and video games.
New protocols can put SkyWallets everywhere
Consortium developers are now able to compress the CloudCoin ID coin used for Skywallets into a much smaller format using a new technique Sean Worthington has dubbed, "Proposed Authenticity Number Generation" or "PANG."
PANG is significant because it allows 400 bytes of unique data to be represented in much less bytes and gives CloudCoin a major competitive advantage over cryptocurrencies, which are difficult to use in routine commercial transactions due to slow speed, high fees and inability to scale.
The first application for PANG is creating a "SkyWallet Card," a .png format image with writing on it. Users will be able to get a free Skywallet Card from the Consortium which allows them to send and receive coins.
The cards require a CVC/CVV and PIN code, just like a debit or credit card, and will work with existing payment technologies, including the tech used in every store in the world. The card can be saved in your browser or mobile phone so that users won't have to re-enter their information.
The next application of the PANG technology will be creating QR codes that can be put on products, packaging or labels, then scanned instantly, a function with tremendous potential for hundreds of commercial applications.
Become a "RAIDA Guardian" proxy host
"RAIDA Guardians," a new program to make RAIDA more reliable and robust, is quickly growing. Guardian hosts can receive 100,000 CloudCoins for participating.
Guardians will create more ways CloudCoin software can reach RAIDA servers by protecting RAIDA's backup Domain Name System (DNS) and Content Delivery Network (CDN). It will also make DNS/CDN services more resistant, following the recent blocking of cloudcoin.global by the communist Chinese government.
What are Guardians?
Each Guardian will operate a small, inexpensive server in their home or business. These servers will act as reverse-proxy servers and DNS servers that hold critical web pages that should not be taken down.
Why be a Guardian?
Guardians will be a vital part of CloudCoin's global effort to create a perfect monetary system that will increase the freedom and prosperity of everyone, while helping combat authoritarian governments who rely on currency manipulation for their existence.
Guardians will receive voting membership in the CloudCoin Consortium for as long as their server remains online and a one-time payment of 100,000 CloudCoins.
What are the requirements?
love liberty and be willing to participate in a project that authoritarians will want to destroy
agree to the Guardian rules and pass a philosophical exam
have a reliable internet connection and electricity, the faster and more reliable the better
have basic technological knowledge and skills to be able to operate the server (be able to connect components, type and follow configuration instructions)
be willing to purchase a basic computing device (under $100) such as the one pictured below
purchase and maintain a domain name in your country, such as raidaguardian.jp in Japan or raidaguardian.ru in Russia
be willing to spend a few hours each month updating the server in the event of any problems (the servers will, however, most likely be able to update themselves)
If you are interested in becoming a Guardian, please email here for more information and an invitation to a members-only Telegram group.

truCrowd asks RAIDAtech to extend funding round
The deadline to participate in the second funding round has been extended until Oct. 31 for RAIDAtech , the private company that develops new applications for RAIDA technology.
truCrowd's Vincent Petrescu requested RAIDAtech CEO Sean Worthington extend the crowdfund just hours before the midnight Sept. 30 deadline because there had been a flurry of last minute investors who needed more time or more information. The new Oct. 31 deadline will not be extended again.
The crowdfund currently has $150,000 in commitments, nearly $40,000 of which came in during what would have been the final days. RAIDAtech has also received another $165,000 in pledged funding outside of the crowdfund.
The crowdfunding offering page contains information about the company, applications and its potential, including the $1 trillion-plus market for RAIDAtech applications.
The offering page also features a video invitation from Shark Tank's Kevin Harrington extolling the value of investing in RAIDAtech.
RAIDAtech is now valued at $11 million and any investor anywhere can take part in this funding round with a minimum investment of $200. The earlier round was limited to only a small number of investors. This second funding round is managed by crowdfunding platform truCrowd.
RAIDAtech was founded last year by Sean Worthington and is a separate entity from the CloudCoin Consortium, although RAIDAtech's success will also benefit CloudCoin by expanding utility and value of the RAIDA network's native currency.
Game-changer breakthroughs in quantum computing
Long-time readers know that CloudCoin Weekly Bulletin has frequently posited that the age of quantum computing is upon us, and that its advent will make legacy encryption (and thereby bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies) obsolete.
When CloudCoin started in 2016, working quantum computers were still considered 10 or 20 years away. That runway has seemingly shortened every week. "Quantum supremacy" (using a quantum computer to solve a problem a traditional computer cannot) has now been achieved. Many suspect that government agencies like the US NSA, which began working on quantum computers almost six years ago , and China's 3PLA, may already have such technology.
Some headlines this week:
Inverse: Quantum computing may be closer than expected with ‘game changer’ discovery
Phys.org : New compiler makes quantum computers two times faster
FiNews: Are we witnessing a new Sputnik moment?
Daily HODL: Joe Rogan 'quantum huge threat to bitcoin and crypto'
Rathi promoted within CloudCoin Support team
CloudCoin support technician Neeraj Rathi has been promoted to Assistant Manger for the CloudCoin Consortium's Global Support team.
Neeraj and the rest of the Support Team assist CloudCoin holders with any issues they may experience, including software and powning.
Support can be reached by email , online or by telephone at +1 530.762.1361.
Earn CloudCoins & $$$ as a RAIDA Detection Agent
There are still slots remaining for people interested in becoming founding RAIDA Detection Agents.
Operators of these units help make the RAIDA network stronger, faster and more secure. Operators earn a portion of network traffic revenues, as well as
a bonus paid in Cloudcoins. Be advised, however, there are a limited number of special "Founders" opportunities available.
There is also a referral program where you can become a Detection Agent, with zero licensing fees, simply by referring potential operators.
Email email@example.com for more information about becoming a Detection Agent operator or joining the referral program.
