The Friend UP – Personal Virtual Cloud Computers for Everyone

What is The Friend UP?

The Friend Unifying Platform (FriendUP) is a new decentralized infrastructure and service network that allows developers to deploy applications to users worldwide. Additionally, it offers a full desktop environment and mobile interface for running multiple applications and using cloud storage and network devices. It was created to allow developers to deploy on open source, user owned infrastructure and break out of technology silos.

FriendUP runs on Friend Servers, software that can be downloaded and installed to form the Friend Network. Each user who is running such servers are rewarded with FRND, Friend’s own ERC20 compatible Ethereum based token. Inside this network, there is a marketplace – the Friend Store. Here, users can trade, using FRND, in services and applications.

Friend has been in development for over 4 years and has already released two major versions for centralized infrastructure. Because of its history with commercial customers, the Friend team decided to also support fiat currency in the store through exchanges. This allows both crypto and non-crypto customers to participate in the market.

What tasks does Friend solve?

Friend has been created to provide people with personal Virtual Cloud Computers, which are special machines, powered by potentially millions of servers, which can give users a great computing involvement on the decentralized network. Unlike AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and other wonderful creations of engineering, they do not belong to any corporation, are not restricted by licensed firmware or any commercial contracts. They generate an absolutely free and accessible service, which operates on all devices. Friend is an ecosystem of servers and clients. Servers provide customers with storage space, computing capacity, redundancy and different kinds of digital services. FriendUP gives users a Virtual Cloud Computer and a virtual data center with pretty much unlimited resources. This data center can be used for anything from running a website to offering a server backed API or advancing a multiplayer game server network. The Friend Network will technologically enable developers to create productive and completely capable systems and operate them together.

Elon Musk: Bitcoin Is Good, But Not For Tesla

Elon Musk has recently made a statement showing his attitude towards cryptocurrency and financial world as a whole. He supports Bitcoin, yet, it will not bring good for Tesla.

Elon Musk is a well-known technology entrepreneur and engineer with a fortune of $22.8 billion, he projects, like SpaceX, Tesla, PayPal, cover different areas of live, meanwhile they are competing to other companies at a high level. Musk is also a socially active person, he likes to post tweets sharing his thoughts about what is happening in the world. Though, sometimes it may bring consequences, like it was in July last year, when the SEC sent a request to Tesla regarding tweets of Elon Musk.

Furthermore, he freely expresses his attitude towards cryptocurrency. Once he even claimed how many Bitcoins he actually possessed. The Twitter community blowed up every time when Musk speaks about cryptocurrency. For instance, in October 2018, Elon posted a tweet about his love for anime and offered a subscriber to buy Bitcoins.

Twitter even blocked his account for a certain period of time to make sure he was the author. So, this time the world has gone mad, when Musk expressed his feelings about financial system and Bitcoin, in particular,  in the podcast “On the Road to Full Autonomy With Elon Musk.”

“Paper money is going away. Crypto is a far better way to transfer value than pieces of paper, that’s for sure,” he said. “Bitcoin’s structure is brilliant but I don’t think it would be a good use of Tesla’s resources to get involved in crypto.”

Furthermore, Musk added that Bitcoin has its pros and cons, yet, what he is really concerned about is crypto mining, to create one Bitcoin, people use high-powered computers to solve a complex math problem.

“We’re really just trying to accelerate the advance of sustainable energy, and I think one of the down sides of crypto is that computationally it’s quite energy intensive. There had to be some kind of constraints on the creation of crypto. But it’s very energy intensive to create slightly incremental Bitcoin, at this point.”

CryptoMining.Farm Scam: 30 Victims Lost $1.34 Million

Thirty people have filed complaints to Thailand’s Technology Crime Suppression Division stating that they were victims of crypto mining scam, they allegedly lost 42 million baht ($1.34 million). The police thinks that the amount of victims can be bigger.

According to the victims’ words, the leaders of the scam convinced them to invest money into CryptoMining.Farm, a blockchain-mining website. One anonymous victim said to the Bangkok Post that one of the leaders promised investor an impossibly high return – 70% a year.

The victims signed contracts when they entered the website, the documents said that a customer may withdraw money at any time he/she wanted without any additional condition. However, the situation has changed since August. The victim stated that:

“From August the owner began imposing conditions for withdrawing the money. Then at the start of this month, the site announced it would start paying back investors in 84 installments which would take over seven years to complete. The payments were supposed to be made in foreign currencies [which] is not permitted by Thai laws.”

After a preliminary investigation, the police is sure that not 30, but 140 people became victims of the scam. Moreover, it can be related to a big scandal which happened in August 2018, when a popular Thai actor and his siblings stole about 797 million baht ($25.5 million).

According to the Bangkok Post, the company has two official offices in Bangkok and Chiang Mai, which may make the victims think that the company’s operations are legal.

Thailand treats digital money with caution and tries to regulate it. The Thai Ministry of Finance even issued a document last year where all the country’s cryptocurrency activities were regulated, including the taxation of participants of crypto market.
