A perfect unknowing representation of crypto-economic systems being the public infrastructure of the future by Matheus Bertelli

If you’re not aware of what cadCAD is, it is a modelling and simulation tool for ‘digital-twins’ of complex adaptive systems. It stands for complex adaptive dynamics Computer Aided Design and was developed by Block Science.

In 2019, they open-sourced it, citing that it eliminates the cost of entry for modeling and simulating complex cyber-physical systems. It’s quite popular among the token engineering community.

What are digital twins?

Digital twins are replicas of an organic or inorganic cyber-physical system in a digital form that can be modeled and experimented upon via simulations.

When you are developing a Tesla or a Falcon-9, you have digital…

This is a high-level intellectual exercise of a Lunar Mining Ecosystem

The Moon has always been a hot topic even amid Mars. It is also the closest celestial body beyond Earth’s gravity well. In this piece, an attempt will be made to conceptualize the lunar mining ecosystem. While studies exist by far more intelligent and accomplished professionals, most tend to focus on the technical systems architecture for going to the Moon, settling on the Moon[1], using the Moon as a base for further system exploration[2], [3] and systems architectures for mining[4] the Moon. …

TLDR: This is a bullet pointed high level overview of the Bitcoin Protocol & Consensus.

Bitcoin

  • Bitcoin is a pseudonymous, trust-less, decentralized, and immutable network.
  • Anyone can join the network with a computer and an internet connection.
  • The computer is a node inside this network.
  • The node may verify and audit the history of transactions in the network.
  • In the case of the Bitcoin network, the minting and distribution of bitcoins is determined through a process called mining.
  • Anyone can participate in the mining process by either hosting their own node (computer) in the network (or) joining an existing mining pool.

INTRODUCTION

A new wave of companies are re-igniting the space race in the form of human travel to other planets. In the 1950s much of the space race was dominated by the USA and the Soviet Union. In the past decade, we’ve seen that replicated by new private companies. When it comes to space tourism, humans are involved and hence, interaction design is something that needs to be addressed to make sure a customer’s experience is met. This article is an Interface Evaluation of a human-rated space capsule.

When it comes to Interaction Design, one may not think of human space…
