Smart Prenup Contracts

You've likely heard about Bitcoin and debated whether it's a bubble.

If you're a bit more aware of the cryptocurrency ecosystem, you'd have heard about Ethereum, and the ICO (Initial Coin Offering) phenomenon, where ideas -- literally often just ideas -- are raising tens of millions of dollars via cryptocurrency, no doubt fueled in large part by money escaping from China and Russia and laundering from Latin America.

Ethereum introduced the concept of smart contracts (really programs that govern transfer of cryptocurrency without human involvement) already being tested for Escrow application and the like.

Introducing the Ball and Blockchain Initial Coin Offering, which will make feasible for every marriage to be governed by a "smart" prenup, such that perfect tracking of a lifetime of expenses (her shoes, his ties, her student loan, his sports car), the amount of time already being spent with kids, pre and post marriage properties of various sorts are automagically tracked and permit a simple, one click divorce with the $30,000 expense that is typically spent on the process, and no debate over the above mentioned details. Of course other typical prenup items (such as we're splitting everything exactly 50/50, or you keep the house, I keep the maid) can be entered into the smart contract as well.

Early buyers into the ICO can receive a 40% discount.

       "make feasible for every marriage to be governed by a "smart" prenup, such that perfect tracking of a lifetime of expenses" Actually this has some merit! I think there should be a click2divorce website. If everything based on two different debit cards were tracked then items could be divided semi-effortlessly with click2divorce.

       ha, no, [Ray], and never in the cards, I have my third grandchild on the way :)

       This is about archetypes. The binary archetype does not work for my community. People need to be archetypicalky fluent, know what happens if Mario and Luigi encounter Princess Peach or the dinosaur or whatever. The issue is that people with disabilities get stuck in the binary archetype (which is the ultimate message of Christianity with an overlay of trinary, ok full disclosure the H stands for Anti) more often, and it’s not fair. Not, “not fair” in the sense of please help me but not fair in the sense, doesn’t make sense if you think about it. I’d be careful what you type because the disability currency is a real thing and you all are beyond complicit to the point of responsible such that I will extract every last character’s worth of value from your collective anuses, physically, with my hand, personally, in real time and real space... if you don’t do exactly what I tell you to do, in real time and real space. This is not a negotiation, it’s just the right thing to do, and it is already enforced by United States Law if you read it right and it will soon be Disability Law after 2020 and you all and the rest of the world will be responsible for every last microaggression and every last flaming white autistic computer person innuendo, every last one of them. Archetypes come in many colors and you should learn them, or suffer the consequences. So yes that is a negotiation, binary style, for all of you computer junkies. Maybe you can put that into google and have a nuclear family as a result, I don’t have any children, and I am angry about that. I wanted children and I didn’t get them because you stepped in. And we are just going to sit there with that. Make my day.

       JHC, have you tried antipsychotics? wikipedia says of quetapine "the short acting version has a wholesale cost of about US$12 per month.[11] In the United Kingdom a month's supply costs the NHS about £3.19"   

       you could order it without prescription from some online place and try it for a month. I am not a physician, and quetapine does have side effects the wikipedia [link] describes it further.   

       Give it a go, you might feel much better.
beanangel, Oct 21 2017
  

       I feel great thank you Bean. I am for anything that begins with anti yes, but Western doctors are of no help to me. I prefer my army of hot Korean massage therapists, with which I am am about to remediate all of your sins. If I had my totally free, as in beyond coke and Pepsi binary Standard oil slash Microsoft slash uber slash Harvey weinstein’s Hollywood, slash disability currency, choice, I would choose to microdose LSD or maybe have a weekly Peruvian Amazon Auahuasca routine that built toward worldwide reparations in the form of an archetypical swarm of flying, fucking, temperature-regulating, orgiastic, encounters in the sky, by me, with an heirirarchically ordeed panoply of all of the hot Asian chicks in the world, high above the New Australian central sea, but barring that , yes perhaps I will google some of your key words, but then again why bother? There are much more “feel better” things I could be doing, for instance responding directly to your sorry anus which will be charged, and lightened, by me, in real time and real space, exactly one whole fucking shit load of disabity bucks for that last post. So yeah thanks for the advertisement from western medicine but I am happy here with my army if asisn chicjs and you all can hike up in England or Scandinavia or wherever and continue to hate for a living and to not understand why slavery is a bad policy until I and the army if Korean masseuses get the chance to remediate you in person. Happy fear. Fear is a good thing. As if Halloween, which is the international disability holiday, and I want to celebrate it wit you, prepare yourself, with vasoline.

       Here’s a way for you all to remediate yourselves before the shit hits the fan in 2020, I said magnanimously, turn the halfbakery into an accounting system for exactly how many disability Bucks each one of you owes me. There’s a problem for you. You have some excel chops. Some other engineer told me it couldn’t be done. Fuck that dude. Turn it into an accounting system for exactly how deeply I will have to remediate you if you don’t do it yourself. Happy sucking, white people. — love, the antichrist.

       Or hide in your hobbit holes.

       Smart contract, yes, but ICO? I don't see how that works. Now, keep in mind that I don't actually know how ICOs work.   

       But it seems to me that in an ICO, you create a new cryptocurrency that's associated with your company (or marriage, in this case), and people buy in/start mining it in the hope that it will improve in value as your company does. I don't know how these two values are linked, but I don't know that for traditional shares either. Anyway, in other words, it's an investment in the company like any other (stock market/venture capital/etc.).   

       In the case of marriage, how does your marriage get more valuable to investors, to improve the value of your cryptocurrency? If it doesn't, and they don't expect it to, they're not going to invest.   

       And why are you doing venture capital fundraising for your marriage, anyway?

       I completely got the wrong end of the stick when first hearing about blockchain. Now I understand it, its just plain evil and will vanish from the earth within a decade when more people wake up.   

       READ -   

       To maintain the value of any blockchain system, there has to belief in it greater than the cost of the energy to maintain it - which is considerable. Energy usage of Ireland considerable.   

       It's like someone redefined fire to be open source because people could pile up cash and set fire to it and the value of fire would only go up if the piles of burning cash got bigger.   

       i.e. people buying at the same cost as the artificial mining ROI. Crypto-currencies do not need high energy expenditure to maintain, you could design any open or closed totally secure transaction system and deploy it on non-bank hardware by paying the top 100 server farms around the world (for a bit of redundancy) and it wouldn't take more than a few kilowatts.   

       Blockchain and its gigawatt power demands is like saying you can only grow tulips in a zero-gravity environment. It's not true, but people new to tulips may well think that.
