R&D has become a buzzword in many business communities. It has become fashionable to do R&D. General opinion is that if you are doing R&D you will be extra reach or you will do something great for the community or even mankind.
I’ve been working on R&D projects since the mid-nineties. I was involved in many different roles ranging from developer to financier of the project.
Most modern countries believe that the prosperity of the nation depends heavily on technological advancement and that technology advancement is primarily based on R&D.
Since the industrial revolution in the 18th century, England seems…
Passive Income Myth has taken the internet by storm. As a seasoned investment manager, I‘m repeatedly astonished by the percentage of people that believe the passive income myth.
I could never understand how well-educated people are spreading this myth as a religion or even better cult. Of course, I have in mind people with good intentions, not the ones selling some education program or investment product.
Why is passive income so sacrilegious?
Because you have to deny common sense, all modern science, and traditional religions in order to believe in passive income.
Passive income is a contradiction in terms.
After watching hours and hours of youtube videos regarding intermittent fasting I was ready to try it out. As part of the cleansing rituals, I used fasting up to 72 hours before.
The idea of a short everyday fast was appealing it would mean doing something beneficial for my body everday.
The theory of intermittent fasting is you can eat in 6 hours window and you should fast the remaining 18 hours of the day. During the fast, you can drink only water, green or black tea, and coffee.
About 15 hours after the last meal body runs out of…
I’m fasting frequently and I have first-hand experience with this — however, I have no scientific proof of what is going on in my body or any other body while fasting. I’ve googled it and found out that.
In 2016 Nobel prize for medicine was awarded to Yoshinori Ohsum for discoveries of the mechanisms for autophagy.
The timeline I’m presenting is a compilation of many authors from the internet and my comments where I think are necessary for first-timers to understand. I hope my simplifications will not distord the subject to much.
According to most authors, fasting starts only 8…
I’m in crypto mining since 2009. My predominant role is as a consultant to midsize and large institutional investors. In order to feel alive and prove to myself I can always start from zero from time to time I try something that seems impossible at a first glance. I can still remember 2009 when all you needed to mine BTC was your home computer.
This year I’ve tried if entering crypto mining without any assets is still possible in 2021.
Then I knew that unspecific mining devices are sold as computers for gammers or every graphic card separately. But what…
I read many articles on setting goals. I believe most of the authors have good intentions. However, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. And as a consequence, most people that follow these authors end frustrated in the hell of not achieving their goals, and on top of, they are blaming their selves for not being able to achieve the goals they set.
It has been 4 years since conception and 3 years since the token-generating event. As is always the case in life things change a lot with time — but in the end, it is all for the better.
As corporation that has issued SCCTN has to say I’m sorry and Please forgive me to the community. So has the SCCTN community say Thank you and I Love you for creating SCCTN and disappearing.
SCCTN has evolved from a corporate test mule into a community of 12.000 holders.

Just 3 years ago we’ve finished testing the 8th version of SmartCityCoinTestNet and we decided it’s time to go live on Etherium.
We were full of optimism mixed with a dose of healthy skepticism. We venture into the unchartered waters of crypto technology.
Initial success was not lasting long and we had to cope with the reality of crypto markets.
If we wanted to stay competitive we had to streamline our operations and cut costs as a consequence the project was transferred from a Swiss company to a community where members offer services to other members.
The completely centralized project…
This is a story of how the best modern consulting contract was negotiated and how it became a consulting industry benchmark.
As it is often the case in the known history for every great development two titans have to clash. In our case first titan was one of the best enterpreneur globaly and the second titan was best performing independent consultant in existance.
The clash was imminent.
Entrepreneur(the first titan) need skills for the project but was convinced consultants charge too much.

There is a lot of different enterprise-scale crypto mining operations active as I’m writing this story.
Some do it as a side business
Most common companies that go about crypto mining as a side business want to capitalize on excessive processor power or negligible marginal costs for the energy of miners.
Most do it as a core business
Companies that go about crypto mining as a core business chose to dedicate facilities and purchase dedicated mining equipment. Energy is bought on the market.
