Former NBA scout says Spencer Dinwiddie tweeting too much on business / money, needs to worry about basketball. Dinwiddie responds in a long argument

Super long argument and thought very interesting. the ScoutWithBryan guy worked in the league for 7 years in Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, and Toronto Raptors.. has 15k followers, some NBA players and reporters retweet him
BACKGROUND
Nets G Spencer inwiddie has been posting recently about players being pressured to play, the owners using their anonymous sources in the media to pressure players to play in an isolated location and act like all the players want to come back. He believes NBA players should be compensated uniquely for this situation for taking virtually all the risk
SD: Isn’t that what big business is about? I’m a small business that is a cog in the machine of a bigger business lol
SD: Yes, the team owners have run a master class in media manipulation.
Scout With Bryan sees this, says Dinwiddie has been talking about money too publically and responds
I miss the days when basketball players considered themselves basketball players trying to win championships instead of a “small business that is a cog in the machine of a bigger business”
As always, you all make it about race & “counting someone else’s $” & “everyone applaud Spence for teaching financial literacy”... Nah. I just would love to see mentality be “if we go directly to playoffs, we’re gonna be ready to compete for a championship.” Not “pay me more”
Spencer Dinwiddie isn’t nearly as brilliant as you think he is. Carrying this year’s revenue? This year’s revenue is in the shitter. The risk to healthy young men is ~ odds of getting struck by lightning. He got a $34M guaranteed contract, converted that into some investment /2
vehicle in violation of the CBA, tried to gofundme $25M for fans to choose his next team in another clear violation of the CBA... NBA players are handsomely paid & I fully support guys trying to get every $ they can in their contracts & endorsements. But Dinwiddie has really /3
not stopped tweeting about his own $$ since COVID started, & IMO it’s tone-deaf at this point & shows an obsession w his own pockets over an obsession w being the absolute best player he can be & letting the $ come from that. No, you don’t get paid extra for doing your job /4
during a near global depression. If you’re not comfortable w the minuscule risk to you personally, don’t play. If you think revenue is up, you’re wrong. You have a great contract. Play bball . Win games. Then sign a bigger contract. If I’m a GM I want guys about that, not just $$. /F

THE ARGUMENT
Anyways, long argument ensues. Here's the links since linking all of them would take to long
Dinwiddie says, he's operating like a business because it is a business. His name was just in the news in the Bradley Beal trade rumors -> https://imgur.com/a/Fi8cz5g

scout says Dinwiddie's GoFundMe and Bitcoin stuff violates CBA, Diwiddie says nah https://imgur.com/a/SCiFpSK
Scout says Dinwiddie wants more $$$ for the wrong reason at the wrong time https://imgur.com/a/qOnf81o
The scout ends with saying Dinwiddie's talent isn't good enough to cover for the negative reputation he is growing behind the scenes as a problem guy known for talking about his money and off the court endeavors. - https://imgur.com/a/XY5LH3D

Hide and Seek

I know you are reading this. You know who you are. This game has went on for long enough. It has been almost a year. Please, let it end. I am begging you. I just want my life back.
For everyone else, I will start at the beginning.
I am sure all of you have seen those youtube or twitch streamers who like to scam the scammers by wasting their time, right? I thought it was funny so I decided I would do the same thing, except without broadcasting it to the world. It was a lot of fun to see how long I could keep these assholes tied up on the phone with me instead of your trusting grandma.
Then I heard about the “Dark Web” and how there are also people on there who like to scam people. I admit, I had never been on the dark web before, but I had heard the stories. It was the wild west where you could buy drugs and have them delivered to your door and the police couldn’t track you. You could hire a hitman to kill anybody you wanted as long as you had bitcoins to pay them with. Sadly, I also heard about the child porn rings and knew I did not want to accidentally land on one of those pages. The anonymous nature of the dark web can both a blessing and a curse.
I logged on to the dark web and was able to find a page advertising hacking services. Not real hacking, but more stuff like hacking into your significant others facebook account or email to see if they are cheating on you. Stuff a simple keylogger would accomplish but they were asking for hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. It was clearly a scam and was exactly what I was looking for.
Before I talk to any scammer, I spoof my number and have a virtual machine set up so if they take command of my computer, they are not actually doing anything real. It is all just a charade. I never use my real name, or real telephone number.
It started off the same way these things always start off. I act interested in a service, but I am not smart enough to know how to buy and send bitcoin. I string them along, and they eventually try to walk me through it over the phone. No matter how easy they make it, I am just too dumb to figure it out. They eventually get tired of dealing with me and hang up. All I wasted was both of our time.
This call was different. After about 5 minutes of me playing dumb, they figured it out and were pissed.
“You think you’re funny?”
“What are you talking about?”
“Trying to waste our time?”
“Yea, the more time you waste on me, the less time you have to scam other people.”
“You fucked up this time. You fucked with the wrong people.”
“Why do you do this? Scam people? Does it make you feel good?”
“We aren’t the spam callers you normally talk to in Nigeria or India, Jason. You are on the Dark Web now, and you should have known better than to fuck with people on the Dark Web.”
How the hell did they know my name was Jason? I told them my name was David. What the fuck? I better get off here now.
“You are a scammer. Get a real job and stop trying to scam people.”
I ended the call.
Less than a minute later, my phone rang from my own number. I knew I shouldn’t have answered it, but I did. I knew who it was.
“Hello?”
“Jason, we don’t like it when people hang up on us.”
“Listen, I clearly messed with the wrong person. I’m sorry. I am just trying to annoy scammers who scam innocent people. That’s all. This is just a big misunderstanding. Let’s just go our separate ways. I am sorry.”
“That is not how this is going to work Jason Keys”
“How do you know my name?”
“You found hackers on the Dark Web, are you surprised we know who you are and that your address is XXXXX ?” Yes, they knew my address.
“Okay, you were able to trace my phone and get my personal information. I get it. I fucked up.”
“Where are you right now, Jason?”
“I’m at work.” I lied.
‘No, you’re not, Jason. You are in your kitchen.”
“Okay, you somehow have used my phone’s GPS to find my location. I get it. You are real hackers. I will never waste your time or anyone else’s time again. I swear.”
“Do you like games, Jason?”
“What do you mean? I have an xbox.”
“Were going to play a game.”
“No, we don’t have to do that. We can just go our own way.”
“We are going to play Hide and Seek. You know how to play Hide and Seek right Jason?”
“The kids game. Yea. Everyone knows how to play that but I don’t want to play this game. I don’t even know who you are.”
“That is what makes this game so much fun for us. We know who you are. But to you, we could be anyone, anywhere, at anytime.”
“No. I am not going to play your game.”
“You don’t seem to understand. You don’t have a choice in the matter.”
“What happens when you catch me?”
“Then you will have to hide again.”
“What if I just don’t play?”
“Bad things will happen to you.” they said. “You have 12 hours to hide. Good luck.”
They hung up. .
They are just fucking with me I thought.
I clicked on the Facebook app on my phone and a message popped up saying No Account Found. I tried my twitter and gmail account and everything was gone. Somehow they had deleted my entire online presence while they were on the phone with me.
I knew I never should have went onto the Dark Web. I should have believed all the rumors I read about that place.
Maybe this person was serious about playing their game of Hide and Seek. At worst, I thought, I should find a different place to sleep for a few days just to let this pass over. I grabbed my backpack and threw in a few pairs of clothes to last three days, a pillow, and a toothbrush. That should be enough, I thought.
I called out of work and told them I had a family emergency and would be gone for a few days. I wasn’t sure where I was going to go yet, but a full tank of gas was a start. I slid my card into the gas pump and it came back denied. That is weird, I had just gotten paid 2 days before and had plenty of money in my account. I pulled out a credit card and tried again. It was also denied.
I went to the bank to get this problem sorted out. I told the teller my card was declined but I had money in my account earlier. She took my details to pull up my account, but their system showed no account ever existed under my name. I told her that was impossible! I showed her I have a debit card with my name on it. She called a manager over and they took the card away and told me I could be charged with fraud for having a fake debit card. I tried to explain but they were certain they have never had an account under my name or social security number. Even if I had an account in the past, their system would have been able to find it under my social.
I left the bank dumbfounded. My card had worked the day before and I have had an account at that bank since I turned 18 over five years ago. There is no way even hackers could delete my accounts that fast, if it is even possible at all. It had been less than an hour.
I sat on the hood of my car and called the credit card companies, but they had no records of me on file either. The one positive thing about this entire experience is they wiped off a few grand in my credit card debt, so I guess thank you for that much.
I went back to my car and the reality of the situation came crashing down on me. They knew who I was, where I lived, and now I had no access to any money. I sat down in the car to think over my options of what to do next when I saw an envelope on the passenger seat. I opened it up and it contained $100 cash (5 twenty dollar bills) and a note.
Time is ticking. You have $100 dollars and 11 hours left. You better go hide, because soon I will start to seek.
They found me already? How were they already in my town and knew where I was and what kind of car I drove? What am I going to do now? They are already watching me and what kind of car I drive, I am not even going to be able to use my own car.
After some thinking, I drove to the bus stop and bought a ticket for a bus heading North. It would be making 6 stops between here and Chicago so I can get out of town and decide where to get off later. They can’t know where I am going to be if I don’t even know where I’ll be. The ticket was $50 dollars so that only leaves me $50. I decided I would just have to deal with it later.
The bus ride itself is a nightmare on its own, but that is a story for another time. I got on the bus and finally decided enough was enough in Indianapolis. I left a warm Atlanta for Indiana with nothing but a few changes of clothes in my backpack. Could life be much worse?
I got something to eat at a McDonalds close to the bus stop and saved what little money I had left. There wasn’t enough money to spare for a motel, no matter how shady it was. I needed to save every penny I had right now. I slept outside and froze my ass off.
I didn’t know a soul there. I just decided it would be best if I kept a low profile and tried to stay out of sight. I didn’t have any sort of electronics for them to track and I don’t have any credit cards to trace. They shouldn’t have any idea where I got off the bus at. I could be in any city between Atlanta and Chicago if they had seen what bus I got off on.
That night, I found a starbucks and decided to grab myself a coffee. I put in my order and went to the restroom to clean myself up a little. I got back just as they were calling my name telling me my drink was ready. I grabbed my coffee and the employee said someone had given him a note to give me with my coffee. My heart sank as I sat down and opened the envelope. They had found me in less than 24 hours after I traveled over 500 miles away without telling a soul.
Inside was another $100 dollars and a note.
Not a bad start, most aren’t smart enough to ditch their car and town so fast. You have $100 dollars and 24 hours to find a new hiding spot. Try a little harder next time. I like a challenge.
I sat in the starbucks exhausted and defeated. If they found me that easily then was there any way to escape them? I decided to do what I should have done when all of this started. I went to the police.
The police listened to my story and then took my ID. They asked some questions and clearly did not believe I was telling the truth. They asked if I had taken any drugs and then ran my ID. When he came back he asked me if it was a fake ID because it was not pulling any information on me. I asked him to try one more time.
Before he tried again, he asked if I might be having some mental problems or off my medicine because I sounded like I might be having an episode. I’m pretty sure he wanted to take me to the hospital for a psychiatric hold.
When he went to run my ID again, I quietly slipped out the door and escaped. I knew what they had done. I no longer exist. At least in the eyes of the law and the public. My identity was deleted. My bank accounts were gone. My credit cards were gone. My social media was gone. Everything that proved who I was is gone. Outside of those who know me, I do not exist. And if I don’t exist, they can kill me with ease.
I walked to a truck stop near the interstate and was able to hitch a ride to Chicago for $20 dollars. A random trucker seemed a lot safer than a Greyhound bus full of drug addicts and creeps like I had taken to get this far. At least I got 2 hours of sleep in a warm cab.
In Chicago, I bought a burner phone and decided it was time to call home. It was prepaid, cheap, and new. The only number I knew was my own and my mom’s so I had to call her. I called her up and she was worried and asked where I was. I told her Chicago and started to explain what had led me here, but the call dropped. I looked at my phone and it said it had no service. A few moments later I got a text message.
YOU CAN USE A PHONE. YOU CAN’T ASK FOR HELP. THE RULES ARE SIMPLE YOU HIDE. WE SEEK.
I threw the phone against the wall and it shattered into pieces. It was a brand new phone. Nobody should have been able to know or hack it so fast. I am alone. Nobody can help me. I don’t know what to do anymore. The only option I had was to play their stupid game.
Since January 16th, my life has been constantly moving from town to town, sleeping in homeless shelters or park benches. Every night I go to sleep wondering if I will wake up to a note next to my head telling me to hide again. Every day I worry a random person will hand me an envelope.
I know some of you guys must be asking yourself why I even play the game? Why don’t I just stop running? They are just playing with me. They would not actually hurt me.
I have tried that before. In Colorado, I was tired, cold, and wet when they found me. I decided enough was enough. They left me the note mocking my attempts to run away and gave me another $50 dollars. I said screw it, let them kill me. I got me a nice hotel at the Hilton and spent all the money I had on a nice steak dinner. If they decided to kill me, at least I would have a nice last meal and a warm bed on my last night.
I thought I would have been up all night worried, but I was too worn out to care. I slept like a baby. I was shocked to open my eyes the next morning and not find someone with a gun pointed at my head. I smiled and thought to myself it had all been a game. A stupid fucking game that I believed was real. I spent months on the road, homeless, cold, and hungry for nothing.
Then I looked over and saw a note on the bed with a sharp knife lying across it. Someone had been here while I was sleeping. They had broken into my room and were in the same room with me. They could have killed me and I never would have known. I almost wish they had, but they let me live. Those assholes had let me live.
We aren’t ready for the game to end yet. Keep running and hiding Jason. The next time, we will not be so nice. Now back to Hide and Seek! See you soon.
There was no money with the note. My backpack was gone. I was completely broke after spending all my money on food and a hotel. I wish they would have killed me.
I don’t know why I didn’t just stay where I was and let them kill me, but letting someone kill you and doing nothing to stop it isn’t easy.
This game of cat and mouse continued. And that is what it was. A game of cat and mouse. I realized there was no hiding from them. They always knew where I was and there was no escape. They just liked playing the game.
I don’t know what the fun of this game is for them except to watch someone suffer. I don’t know how they seem to be everywhere and know everything. It doesn’t matter how fast or far I run, they will always be the steps ahead of me.
Every person I see or talk to could be them. I constantly try to look at the faces around me to see if any of them look familiar but everyone is a stranger. They are ghost. Always close by. Always watching. Always invisible.
They find me almost as soon as I stayed in the same place for more than a night or two. Sometimes they would be nice and let me settle somewhere for a week or two, but never long enough to be comfortable. I think they just like to keep me guessing and to give me hope that they decided to stop this game.
They also always gave me exactly what I need to survive. Most of the time it was just enough money to keep me fed but still hungry with a little left over. If it was deathly cold outside I may have a little extra to afford a place inside or even a warm jacket to keep me cold but alive. If I was sick, a bag of medicine would show up. They give me just enough to live a miserable life.
I know you are reading this. And I quit. I quit your game. I’m tired of playing. You’ve taken everything from me. If you want to kill me then kill me. I would rather be dead than to keep playing your game. You know where I am. You always do. Give me my life back or kill me. I quit.
Update:
Jason was right. Our game of Hide and Seek really is a cat and mouse game. We are the cat and Jason was the mouse. Here is the thing about a cat and a mouse, a cat likes to play with the mouse, to scare a mouse, to corner a mouse, to slap the mouse with its claws. When the mouse quits playing the cats game, the mouse dies.
It looks like we have to find a new mouse since our last one decided to stop playing our game. Luckily nosleep has plenty of mice to choose from and the accounts have a comment history so we can find the perfect mouse for our next game of Hide and Seek. If you see your own number pop up on your caller ID, don’t answer. It just might be us.

I threw the phone against the wall and it shattered into pieces. It was a brand new phone. Nobody should have been able to know or hack it so fast. I am alone. Nobody can help me. I don’t know what to do anymore. The only option I had was to play their stupid game.
Since January 16th, my life has been constantly moving from town to town, sleeping in homeless shelters or park benches. Every night I go to sleep wondering if I will wake up to a note next to my head telling me to hide again. Every day I worry a random person will hand me an envelope.
I know some of you guys must be asking yourself why I even play the game? Why don’t I just stop running? They are just playing with me. They would not actually hurt me.
I have tried that before. In Colorado, I was tired, cold, and wet when they found me. I decided enough was enough. They left me the note mocking my attempts to run away and gave me another $50 dollars. I said screw it, let them kill me. I got me a nice hotel at the Hilton and spent all the money I had on a nice steak dinner. If they decided to kill me, at least I would have a nice last meal and a warm bed on my last night.
I thought I would have been up all night worried, but I was too worn out to care. I slept like a baby. I was shocked to open my eyes the next morning and not find someone with a gun pointed at my head. I smiled and thought to myself it had all been a game. A stupid fucking game that I believed was real. I spent months on the road, homeless, cold, and hungry for nothing.
Then I looked over and saw a note on the bed with a sharp knife lying across it. Someone had been here while I was sleeping. They had broken into my room and were in the same room with me. They could have killed me and I never would have known. I almost wish they had, but they let me live. Those assholes had let me live.
We aren’t ready for the game to end yet. Keep running and hiding Jason. The next time, we will not be so nice. Now back to Hide and Seek! See you soon.
There was no money with the note. My backpack was gone. I was completely broke after spending all my money on food and a hotel. I wish they would have killed me.
I don’t know why I didn’t just stay where I was and let them kill me, but letting someone kill you and doing nothing to stop it isn’t easy.
This game of cat and mouse continued. And that is what it was. A game of cat and mouse. I realized there was no hiding from them. They always knew where I was and there was no escape. They just liked playing the game.
I don’t know what the fun of this game is for them except to watch someone suffer. I don’t know how they seem to be everywhere and know everything. It doesn’t matter how fast or far I run, they will always be the steps ahead of me.
Every person I see or talk to could be them. I constantly try to look at the faces around me to see if any of them look familiar but everyone is a stranger. They are ghost. Always close by. Always watching. Always invisible.
They find me almost as soon as I stayed in the same place for more than a night or two. Sometimes they would be nice and let me settle somewhere for a week or two, but never long enough to be comfortable. I think they just like to keep me guessing and to give me hope that they decided to stop this game.
They also always gave me exactly what I need to survive. Most of the time it was just enough money to keep me fed but still hungry with a little left over. If it was deathly cold outside I may have a little extra to afford a place inside or even a warm jacket to keep me cold but alive. If I was sick, a bag of medicine would show up. They give me just enough to live a miserable life.
I know you are reading this. And I quit. I quit your game. I’m tired of playing. You’ve taken everything from me. If you want to kill me then kill me. I would rather be dead than to keep playing your game. You know where I am. You always do. Give me my life back or kill me. I quit.
Update:
Jason was right. Our game of Hide and Seek really is a cat and mouse game. We are the cat and Jason was the mouse. Here is the thing about a cat and a mouse, a cat likes to play with the mouse, to scare a mouse, to corner a mouse, to slap the mouse with its claws. When the mouse quits playing the cats game, the mouse dies.
It looks like we have to find a new mouse since our last one decided to stop playing our game. Luckily nosleep has plenty of mice to choose from and the accounts have a comment history so we can find the perfect mouse for our next game of Hide and Seek. If you see your own number pop up on your caller ID, don’t answer. It just might be us.

Atlanta Bitcoin: The future is here!

Atlanta Bitcoin: The future is here! submitted by coolcityboy to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

10 Car Companies That Accept Bitcoin

Over the last decades, technology has evolved in a fast way, that many of our habits have dramatically changed. Or, if some of those habits haven’t changed yet, they certainly will in the near future. One of these habits is the way we pay for things, thanks to one key new component: cryptocurrencies. Those virtual, decentralized currencies come in different names and value, but the most accepted as of now is the Bitcoin. Knowing that this currency is gaining more and more popularity, many car companies are starting to realize how powerful and lucrative this cryptocurrency can be, and they decided to accept Bitcoin as a method of payment for their products and services.

10 LUXURY CAR DEALERS

Since Sept. 2017, when a Lamborghini dealer in Costa Mesa, Calif. started taking Bitcoin as a method of payment, other dealers of luxury sports car brands followed suit and now allow you to buy your car with the cryptocurrency. Examples of those are seen in Atlanta and Albany, N.Y., where dealers are now accepting Bitcoin.
“Michael’s Auto Plaza in Albany, New York, also began accepting bitcoin payments through BitPay in December. Eugene Rubinchuk, a vice president and part owner at the dealership, which sells used cars with prices ranging from under $15,000 to an $89,000 Bentley, says he saw posts about extravagant cars like Lamborghinis bought with bitcoin on Facebook,” a CNBC article stated.

9 BOB MOORE AUTO DEALERS

This Oklahoma-based automotive group has started taking Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in all of its 18 dealerships in that state. After starting offering the payment option initially at its Subaru dealership in Oklahoma City, the group is expanding the service into its other locations, which sell Audi, Buick, Cadillac, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Infiniti, Jaguar, Jeep, KIA, Land Rover, Maserati, Mazda, Nissan, Porsche, and Ram.
To make this possible, Bob Moore partnered with Aliant Payments, which will enable the payments with Bitcoin, as well as with Ethereum and Litecoin.

8TESLA

The electric car company started accepting Bitcoin payments recently, but a noticeable case came in 2013, when a Florida man purchased a Tesla S at a California dealership for 91.4 Bitcoins, equivalent at the time to $103,000.
This became a rare case for the Elon Musk company, which doesn’t usually sell its vehicles at traditional dealerships and prefers online sales that involve direct transactions between the manufacturer and its customers.

7 BMW

If you are planning to get a brand new BMW car, you can now use Bitcoin to buy it, as many of the brand’s dealerships are now accepting the cryptocurrency.
Many dealers in the U.S. and in the UK are taking that method of payment, and the move seems to be lucrative, as most Bitcoin users tend to buy luxury goods and services with virtual currencies, paving the way for more and more customers in the future purchasing their cars using Bitcoins. BMW seems to be in the right way by allowing its dealers to accept the currency of the future in its customers’ transactions.

6CLASSIC RECREATIONS

This company based out of Yukon, Okla. specializes in building restorations and continuation cars of Ford Mustangs, with authorization of the Ford Motor Company and Shelby American. In an effort to expand its client base globally, Classic Recreations is accepting payments in many cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin.
re life I have had a strong fascination for technology and its evolution. Cryptocurrencies have come a long way and continue to solidify themselves as a legitimate currency on the global market. The true beauty of accepting cryptocurrency is the universal aspect of it which allows Classic Recreations to connect with consumers from anywhere in the world,” company owner Jason Engel told Bitcoin.com.

5 BERNIE MORENO DEALERSHIPS (CLEVELAND, OHIO)

Luxury car shoppers in the Cleveland, Ohio area now have one more option to pay for their dream machines.
Bernie Moreno, a Mercedes-Benz and Porsche dealer, offers since 2018 the option of payment with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for both cars and services. The dealership patrons are able to purchase their cars via a simple tap on a smartphone, transferring Bitcoin from a virtual wallet to the dealership at no extra fees.

4POST OAK MOTOR CARS (TEXAS)

This Texas-based dealer is the first Rolls Royce, Bentley, and Bugatti dealership to accept Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in its luxury car sales, starting the practice in Sept. 2018.
The retailer has partnered with payment service BitPay to allow its customers to buy their vehicles using cryptocurrencies, and this move will expand its reach of customers to far beyond Texas, as the Bitcoin option will allow the dealership to accept purchase orders from customers worldwide. This will allow more convenience and customers to buy their cars a lot faster than most dealers.

3 E-Z RENT A CAR

This car rental company is aiming at making rentals much easier and faster by accepting Bitcoins as a method of payment for its customers. The company website praises the speed of crypto transactions.
“When you’re far away from home, stepping off a flight in a new city and ready to pick up your rental car, a bank may detect a credit transaction in a new location and freeze your account. A quick, peer-to-peer bitcoin transfer just goes through instantly. The payment is made and you’re ready to drive,” E-Z website stated.

2 CARRIAGE NISSAN (ATLANTA, GEORGIA)

This Atlanta Nissan dealer is now accepting Bitcoin as a method of payment for those looking to buy their new Nissan.

Carriage also partnered with BitPay to enable its patrons to buy their vehicles at the retailer using cryptocurrencies, but before getting excited to get your new ride with Bitcoins, there is a catch: the dealer’s website states that “only Bitcoin payments that can cover the full price of the vehicle including tax, tag and title can be accepted at this time,” and that “finance and lease options are currently unavailable.”

1 BITCAR

BitCar is a website that specializes in fractional ownership of exotic cars, mostly from luxury brands. Using a blockchain-based platform, the site allows you to purchase a car through something called “utility token,” which consists of an asset that is tradable on BitCar’s live peer-to-peer auction platform.

Lisk Highlights weekly roundup February 17th 2019.

Hello everybody. The LISK project and it's enthusiasts are always busy, and this week past has certainly been no exception.
Seeing is believing, so here is a recap of the highlights and interesting items from the past week on the LISK subreddit and beyond.....
 

LiskUSA Goes Deep in it's Response to LIP11

"The proposed LIP11 will have the opposite effect of what it is intending to solve"; this was the collective opinion of the LiskUSA group in reaction to the Lisk Improvement Proposal dealing with the "change to one vote per account in our DPoS". LiskUSA continued, "It will likely cause a decrease in decentralization, replace coalitions with whales (or coalitions of whales), and competition will decrease as standby delegates are disenfranchised even further".
The piece published on the official LiskUSA website and also submitted to the LIP mailing list HERE was written and compiled by Matthew C AKA Ultrafresh and Edward Trosclair AKA StellarDynamic, elected Lisk Delegate. Lisk USA is a community run organization that was made to coordinate, recognize, and reward outreach and developments for Lisk.
Aside from disagreeing with the proposal as it stands, an interesting additional proposal was put forward by LiskUSA, or maybe proposal is too strong a word; maybe an idea is a better way to put it. This was where they wrote... "An interesting but perhaps controversial idea; It is very common for video games to completely wipe a beta server at the official launch of the game. While it goes against the idea of immutability, a one time re-vote / election could be seen as a way to make the landscape more fair for new delegates who will never have a chance of getting votes from some of the large lost accounts”.
There are loads more interesting insights contained within the 2400+ word submission. You can check it all out for yourself HERE.
 

Lisk is Ranking High on Google for Blockchain Terms.

Lisk community member zOwn3Ds over on Lisk Chat seems to have been doing a bit of googling over the weekend when he stumbled across something that impressed him, which led him to post, "good to see lisk academy popping up first in google". He searched for the terms "blockchain node" and the result delivered showed Lisk sitting in No. 1 place for that search.
I decided to do a bit of googling of other terms related to Lisk so firstly I searched for "blockchain dpos" and again the result displayed showed Lisk in No. 1 place for that search. I found the same with simply searching "dpos". Another one of note that again showed Lisk sitting high in No. 2 place for the term "blockchain consensus". It seems The Lisk team's SEO is starting to pay good dividends. Long may it continue.
 

Lisk Sidechain Project Beefs Up its Digital Marketing.

The MADANA project have teamed up with UFOstart, a Berlin based marketing company specialising in blockchain tokensales and business startups. This will result in Lars Schulze, UFOstart Co-Founder, spending quite a bit of time with the MADANA team as he applies his 22 years of experience in the Online Marketing field to their projects promotional moves. Didi Lace, MADANA COO & Co-Founder, welcomed Lars via twitter by saying "A great partner for the interesting road ahead! Glad to have you on board".
The MADANA project has closed its pre-sale and is now preparing for its main sale, so personally I believe it is a good move for the team to bring onboard someone with the amount of experience of Lars, not to mention the contacts his company, UFOstart, can access. Lars founded his first internet company in 1996 and he has reportedly supported more than 100 projects - from startups and SMEs to large corporations. As a part of UFOstart he has worked with such blockchain projects as ascribe, metamorph, photochain, polygravity, rehaptix, womtoken, and Ocean Protocol.

Lisk, Spreading from Costa Rica in Central America to Atlanta in North America.

Lisk Central America have released a comprehensive recap of their presentation at TicoBlockChain 2019 in Costa Rica. Software Architect, Jake Simmons, represented LISK Central America with his presentation on 'Scaling blockchain horizontally with Lisk'. Jake's presentation took part in the midst of the conference's speaker collection of lawyers, developers, educators, banking executives, investment professionals, their keynotes, panel talks and fireside chats.
Lisk Central America is an organization with the intention of bringing awareness of the LISK blockchain application platform and Blockchain in general to Central America. So we are talking, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. Now generally the group's main focus is local meetups, but on this particular occasion the collective took a step into the conference circuit, and from reading their upbeat recap of TicoBlockChain, I don't think it will be the last.
For those of us who could not make the trip we have Lisk community member illuciferium to thank for filming Jake's presentation and uploading it to Youtube HERE. You can also see Jake being interviewed at the conference by Ricardo Barquero, Nimiq Community Manager in this VIDEO
Well done Jake, and we hope to see you introducing Lisk to many more folk in the months to come.
 
Now from a past event in South America to one that is upcoming in North America, and with that we look at towards Atlanta. Lisk delegate Blockvibe's aim is to foster, support, and expand the Lisk ecosystem in South Korea and the United States of America. One of their major plans for the community is to organize and host regular meetups and Lisk sidechain conferences in these regions. To that end they will be hosting an Atlanta Blockchain Meetup on Sat Feb 16 (1 to 3pm), titled "Intro to Blockchain and the Lisk Platform". Further details of the event can be found HERE. Bob Anglin from those lively Lisk Delegates bloqspace.io will be the guest speaker on day. Free food and prize draws are also promised.
Good luck and best wishes to all the event organisers and those folk who where-possible come out to attend these meetups.
 
That's it for the recap of the weeks highlights. I hope it brought you up to speed with all the weeks good news.
These highlight posts also go out daily on the….
LISK Highlights exclusive Telegram group
LISK Highlights Twitter
The highlights are also included in my weekly roundup on the LISK Highlights Medium account and the Bitcoin talk forum's LISK thread, so keep an eye out for them on these outlets also.

For the Fans, By the Fans: Crowdfunding Efforts in NASCAR

/NASCAR is no stranger to crowdfunding. The Dogecar is an obvious example of this. However, the idea of crowdfunding a NASCAR team isn't a new one. There's been many cases of a driver raking money from fans to fund their operation, and four years before the Dogecar, one team tried to do that, though on a much larger scale. For this edition of NASCAR Storytime, we will be taking a look at that team and other crowdfunding efforts in tbe sport. This is the story of America's Racing Team.
America's Racing Team
Probably the most infamous crowdfunding effort in NASCAR not named the Dogecar happened four years before the #98 entered the 2014 Aaron's 499.
America's Racing Team (ART) was founded in July 2010 by a group known as Team Partners, headed by Micheal Wright, Jeff Gordon's former agent and ART Chief Marketing Officer, and Daniel Webber, whose family has a long history in motorsports like F1 and IndyCar. The team also hired former driver and Team Red Bull Competition Director Elton Sawyer to fill the same role with ART. ART hoped to make its debut at the 2011 Daytona 500 and showed up on the NASCAR scene prepared with a commercial.
ART had a unique concept in comparison to other teams in NASCAR. Instead of being operated by one person, ART would receive funding from fans through "memberships", which ranged from $44.95 for children, $49.95 for teens and $299.95 for adults, while family memberships were worth $499.95. Likewise, businesses can spend $1,999.95 to join the team. Seems like a large margin between teens and adults, doesn't it? Racing may require a large amount of money, but the prices aren't going to be convincing fans to swarm to team headquarters to "buy stakes". Being a team member grants fans the opportunity to vote on various traits of the team, including driver and paint scheme.
"Sometimes the best concepts in business are the most obvious ones, the ones that are so obvious that no one takes the first step to bring them to reality," stated Webber. "Creating a team that they can literally help build and manage, from the ground up to the winner’s circle, will be the ultimate experience not only for the fans but also my family, which has been involved in racing around the world for many years."
At Daytona, with help from the Daytona Beach Police Department and Sweetwater Elementary School, the team unveiled their car, the #76 Chevrolet Camaro. With an American manufacturer, an American number and even their intention to sign only American sponsors, the red, white and blue blood seemed to be running strong in the team's veins. The irony in this is that Webber is English, though that's not really a concern, is it? USF1 hired a Brit (James Rossiter) and Argentine (José María López) to drive for them despite their name. Speaking of USF1 and what happened to them...
ART did not show up for the 2011 Daytona 500. There was no announcement of a shutdown or plans to delay their debut, but instead, they just disappeared without a word.
Other Crowdfunding Efforts
ART isn't the only group to try crowdfunding in NASCAR. In 2012, Morgan Shepherd started an Indiegogo campaign to assist his Nationwide Series team, while Angela Cope raised $3,200 to fund a ride with SR² Motorsports at the NNS race in Charlotte. Two years later, Josh Wise and Phil Parsons Racing had the familiar Dogecar campaign for Talladega. Later in the 2014 season, Alex Bowman and BK Racing attempted to rally the Bitcoin community, including /bitcoin, to fund a car for Atlanta. Unfortunately for the team, the campaign did not raise enough money. In the Truck Series that same year, as I mentioned in my previous NASCAR Storytime about them, FDNY Racing and Ryan Ellis hosted a GoFundMe to raise $20,000 after a crash with Jake Crum at Charlotte. Although it raised only $2,365, Ellis' college fraternity was able to step up and provide the cash needed to get the team back on track. In August, the Facebook group Nascar Memes hosted an effort to raise $10,000 for Norm Benning's team, though it only raised $304. In 2015, French Truck Series driver Michel Disdier launched one to fund a ride for Daytona, but fell short and he did not run the race. This year, in the Whelen Euro Series, Team Germany started an effort of their own, targeting a goal of €25,000. As of this post, they have yet to reach their goals. This sub also probably knows about the effort to raise sponsorship for Jordan Anderson last week and the resulting Truck scheme (featuring /NASCAR!) that he ran at the Loudon event. Likewise, for this week's Dover NXS race, hockey website Russian Machine Never Breaks helped raise $8,840 for Ellis' car. Yes, Harambe had a part.
Is a crowdfunded sports team (in that the entire operation is fan-run) a bad idea? Well, ART is one of those cases of the concept falling apart, but it's being utilized in quite an effective manner in indoor football, where the Salt Lake Screaming Eagles will take the field in 2017. The Screaming Eagles are operated by a project known as FANchise, which, like ART, allows fans to control the team.
While we're not too sure how the Screaming Eagles will turn out in the end, it's safe to say crowdfunding in sports is a risky endeavor, but not one that is guaranteed to end in failure every time. One needs to play their cards correctly and hope for the best.
