Substratum’s Community is a Cesspool →

April 28, 2019

Brad Edward Wolfe (707bwolf):

Btw the original reddit post is by William McKenzie who is a known white nationalist neo-nazi based out of an Aryan nation chapter in Kentucky and he actually got this article from Brian Li who is a known pedophile that had a baby with an underage girl in Japan but apparently 13 year old girls are legal in Japan.

In this Reddit comment, Brad Edward Wolfe, a California-based bagholder of SUB and former Substratum Telegram admin, once again demonstrates why the Substratum community is often thought of as one of the worst in the industry. In response to factual information about Substratum removing the team page from its website (an exceedingly stupid decision from CIO Abram Cookson), Wolfe resorted to personal attacks against me and William.

Let’s debunk Wolfe’s claims.

ICONLOOP Appoints James Kim as Its First Advisor →

April 25, 2019

ICONLOOP:

ICONLOOP has appointed James Kim, the Chairman and CEO of AMCHAM Korea (The American Chamber of Commerce in Korea), as its first company advisor. ICONLOOP has found many ways of incorporating its technology into various industries in Korea and has grown rapidly to encompass approximately 160 employees within three years since its establishment in May 2016. ICONLOOP is making an all-out effort to become a more mature IT company this year as it marks the start of the blockchain’s full-fledged market entry.

Historically, ICONLOOP and ICON have maintained a conservative strategy when it comes to onboarding advisors. When advisory appointments do happen, it’s always significant in nature, and this case is no exception.

Substratum Removes Link to Team Page From Its Website

April 24, 2019

Yesterday, I noticed Substratum quietly removed the link to its team page in the footer of its website. After a quick search through Archive.org, it appears Substratum removed the link sometime between March 31 and April 13. I’ve reached out to Substratum regarding the removal of the link, but haven’t received a response. Considering the lackluster quality of the project’s communications department, I don’t expect to receive a response unless the team is in the mood to make another round of excuses. Since Substratum isn’t interested in responding to inquiries, let’s engage in some light speculation.

ICONLOOP Partners with the United Nations’ ITU →

April 15, 2019

ICONLOOP:

 ICONLOOP signed a Collaboration Arrangement with ITU (International Telecommunication Union), which is the United Nations’ specialized agency for information and communication technologies, to establish a high-level framework of cooperation in the area of the ITU Smart Incubator Programme with the aim of providing support and know-how on blockchain related technologies to the global start-up ecosystems.

The ITU is the United Nations’ oldest specialized agency, and is responsible for “issues that concern information and communication technologies.” Among other things, the ITU’s responsibilities include coordinating usage of radio spectrum and satellite orbits, as well as assisting in the development of global technical standards. As part of its Smart Incubator Programme, which aims to assist AI, blockchain, and IoT startups, the ITU has chosen ICONLOOP as its blockchain knowledge partner. Let that sink in for one moment. The ITU, which focuses on global technical standards in the information and communications realm has selected ICONLOOP as its blockchain knowledge partner. This collaboration is likely a direct result from ICONLOOP’s recruitment of Josh Choi, the ITU’s former Programme Lead, and it makes sense from a technological perspective as well. ICONLOOP is essentially the private implementation department of ICON, a public blockchain project that is all about interoperability and facilitating communication across blockchains.

SubstratumNode is 18 Weeks Away →

April 10, 2019

Abram Cookson:

No delay, no misses. Estimates are estimates, the more we know the more accurate they become. This has nothing to do with the skill or working hours. If you want me to post a fake deadline I’m not going to do it. We’ve never as a dev team stated anything regarding dates until we began in January offering show and tells. Everyone is an expert predicting when things can be done until they have to do it themselves. No over promises, we are just showing the data every week and will continue to do so. Some weeks we will have little movement, other weeks we will see massive increase in completed work. If you look at the past 3 weeks (16, 13, 18). It will fluctuate.

According to Substratum’s most recent “Show & Tell”, SubstratumNode’s V1 release is still 18 weeks away. Considering last week’s estimate was 13 weeks, it appears that Substratum’s estimations, along with everything else about the project, should be taken with a grain of salt.
