Is Software eating Agriculture? - AgTech update 1/2016

Summary & my notes about Farm&Food 4.0 #AgTech #farmfood40

- I was happy to see the topic in Germany
- Keese gave an entertaining speech about SiliconValley but missed the update on agriculture
- no news about agtech at all
- no top level visions for the global future of agtech
- focus on Germany and Europe, even if it is a global topic
- no agtech startups presented
- even the term AgTech wasn't used ones
> Germany in my eyes is behind for at least three years
>> Here are our updates on AgTech:

#welcome @MaximilianLoebbecke GF 365FarmNet
Agriculture is moving away from always bigger to precise & specific actions

@ChristophKeese digitalisierung in der landwirtschaft - Axel Springer
disruption, platform, 
The new Hippies disrupting the world.
95% dying rate for disrupted companies Clayton Christensen.
Best strategy is to invest in your disrupt rival.  
> What does that mean for agriculture? - "I have no idea" ;)

@StefanHentschel @SteffenKramer - Digitalisierung Agrarindustrie - Google
Digitalization is not correction, it i"all or nothing"
You can't opt out, it will happen. global demand workshop for digitalization
> no case studies in agriculture yet

Europe = 510M market place

Summary and notes of 3d printing conference berlin 2015 #i3dpconf #daily notes

#keynote2 - 3DP reinvents toys and everything @MarkTrageser
FounderKram-Co Inc

Apps and toys to play 3D:
Robot nation
Hero forge
The 3d printing factory
Hasbro & shapeways my little pony

Growing mtoy arkets:
Drones, robots, 3dprint
Dices on shapeways
Electric paper plane = 3dp+ + amazon

Prototypes: with 3d print you can make any prototype any time again and again
Quality Speed 500%
Make ANYTHING you can dream of!!

No tooling, no shipping, warehousing, lead time
No choices make them all,
No retailer, sales, no trend changes

Customize everything
Re-imagine any existing thing!

Dont ask what is 3dp is for, just tell me what you want and I will make it.

"Local motors" first tech startup printed a car with 3dp
Best time to be an inventor from 0-90
Everyone is qualified for this

#Keynote1 - additive manufacturing @FranzJosefVillmer
Professor of Product Development

3rd industrial revolution:
Longtail of manufacturing
Democratization of production

Advantages of additive manufacturing:
Combination of different technologies
Sustainability: reduction on energy, Using green energy
Shipment of data not goods

Free 3D CAD systems:
Art of illusion
Google sketchup
Lego digital designer

Hybrid machines: Dmg, hermle

AM is a game changer but not the replacement of traditional manufacturing today!

#Screen printing 3d - going to mass production of metal parts
@OlafAndersen Frauenhofer

#How to select the right apps in 3DP
@JurgenLaudus @Materialise
#Rapid Tooling with additive manufacturing
@ThomasLueck cirp gmbh

#examing the myth of 3dp
@OlafDiegel Lund University

>Complexity of a part decides if it should be 3dp
>Customization is the main driver for 3dp 

some Examples
Clip on wheels
Rifle suppressor
E-nable hand

3dp will not replace conventional- it is complementary to /manufacturing
Yes, every home will have a 3dp for hobbys
Will never be used for home manufacturing

#added design value @LionelDean FutureFactories
Art which can only be made by 3dp

#open source in 3d printing @AlexanderHafner Makerbot
Everyone can access local production via 3dp
Like airbnb for printers

Summary and notes of #bitcoinconf vegas 2014


#investing with btc derivates
@MattSlater ceo @
Why derivates with bitcoins?
Huge market size
Contract between two people that derives its value.
Risk management 
Price discovery
Elminitating Volatility
Sign of mature asset class

Btc derivatives Platforms:

#security with multisig
@Eric Lombrozo ceo ciphrex

#currency is fraud
@Andrew Filipowsky - ceo silkroad equity
Bitcoin is the biggest opportunity on earth you could imagine.
FED's and central banks are all fraud.
It will be a bloody revolution to replace this banks with bitcoins.

Books to understand currencies:
The web of debt.
The creature of Jeakle

#disruption of industries
@Raphael Paulin Daigle, @rpaulindaigle founder ducatflow
Why Bitcoin?
1) Financial (time, fees, cash you can email, decentral, 546B$ market)
2) Transfer of propety (time, fees, secure)
3) Media (tipping, monetization, money is validation, donating, micropayment, no checkouts)

#bitshares decentral platform 
@DanielLarimer founder
Btc is about transparency of the ledger.
Btc Isn't money
Btc are the pioneers of freedom,
Decentralized mining cant be profitable

btc as Ledger of a virtual company
The rise of proof of stake (voting) within last 12 month.
Btc needs to pivot

Bitshares presents a new currency:
BitUSD pays as variable YIELD
Interest rates
Without of risks like rippl, counterparty or IOU
The goal of decentralization is maximize competition.

#SelfRegulation of btc industry
@MarcBarach, cmo jumio

#Multi-Sig vs Cold storage
@Will O Brien ceo BitGo
2014 is the year of multisig
Only 0,83% of btc is stored yet in multisig.
MS will bring security to the btc industry and should be embraced by all players!
Multi-sig providers may become the new banks.
MS could be organized centralized with trustees like bitgo or decentralized

Multi-Sig = 3 partys are involved, keys start with "3"

#BTC 2.0 decentralization
@J Bradley Hall ceo icon

Decentralized Platforms:
Bitmessage - p2p email

Icon - digital bear bonds:
Rgal assets
Stocks, bonds
Financial contracts

#Casinos on bitcoin
@BryanCooley CEO virtual empire
Bitcoin gambling already saturated and ultra competitive
High cheating

#a checkout betting btc games:
Updown - betting on courses
RPSLS - rock paper sisor
Fishbitfish - Red fish green fish

Day1 --------------------------
#decentralized stock market

#merchants for bitcoin @SteveBeauregard gocoin ceo
Big names are nice for btc but useless for customers.

Real Drivers for using btc:
Privacy needed
Rejected paymend methods
High fees
Cycles of use

#Investing in bitcoin panel
Charles W Allen
Bastian Brand
Justin o Connell
Matthew Roszak
Harry Yeh
Michael Terpin

OTC swaps

#Rise of bitcoin industry
@bobbyclee ceo btc china
Price will not come down to zero
Btc Price impacts: mining, gold price, dollar price, traders
Btc 0,60 compared to gold 1000 or stocks 7500 per head / global
Price end of 2014 still could go to 10k (prediction from last year) but unlikely

Looking ahead:
More merchants
Traditional finance
Consolidation M&A
Technology into unrelated areas
Concerns will be addressed
Secure storage

Bitcoin Foundation:
#a sponsor with globumbus
Vision: everyone to Realize btc potential
Mission: standardize, protect, promote

#Future of Altcoins panel
Kirill Gourov
Steven Michaels
Gabriel Miron
Bryce Weiner
Stanislav Wolf
Peter C Earle

Millions of Altcoins coming
There are no altcoins who could catchup with btc right now, because of missing critical mass of community. Dodge was an exception which is hard to explain.
Miners are the most difficult asset to start a new coin.
Altcoins had an negative impact on bitcoins, because it costs attention.

#oportunity of bitcoin

#Revolution of bitcoin

What is bitcoin? 
-Public ledger!
-Security without locks, policy, trust.

Revolutions are slow and take time.
DNA turns biology into science
Bitcoin is DNA for money!
Goverments will try to regulate bitcoin, but bitcoin will regulate goverments.

Summary Heureka 2014 #hrk14 #daily notes

Heureka 2014


#Berlin TXL the next urban tech republic to build smarter cities

#Katie Rae @ktrae #techstars 2/4
Have a good story, why are you doing this?
Team should sit in the same boat.
Advocates are fundamentaly important.

#Sales Kung Fu - Steli Efti 4/4
Sales is the reality check!!
Sell Benefits not Features! (Personal agenda)
Balance vision and reality (dont oversell)
The "Elephant" is your friend (address issues)
Selling to wrong customer will kill your startup.
Structure sales emails
Send much more emails
Automate emails
Send a "good bye email" after 3 followups
Call everyone within 5 mins after he signed up!
Demo max of 15mins
Always leave your comfort zone to make an impression
Followup as long as you get a clear yes or no
Follow-up = winning!!

#Bitcoin - future of money @brian fabian crain 3/4
DAC's infrastructure and examples:
Stockexchange, Ebay, dropbox (maidsafe), ...

Startup ideas for bitcoins:
Wallets exchanges derivatives remittance atm mining compliance crowdfunding coloredcoins paymentProcessing blockchainAnalysis

#Storytelling @OleTillmann 1/4
"Learn to fall and fall to learn"
How storytelling makes you an expert in your field.

#become a data driven company @Florian Heinemann 
Why is it important to have a data driven company?:
Better decision qulity
High frequency decisions
Decentral decisions
Positive motivation for team
Reducing room politics in companies (kill meeting decisions)

How to achieve?
implement  processes and systems early
Move in phases and build silos to combine later
1) Orga: BI guys in each department, strong backing by management
2) Infrastructure: avoid data silos
3) People: have an BI architect expert
4) Culture: less wrong is the new right, content beats ego (be strict on personel)!

Summary day2 #TexasBitcoinConference #daily notes #lifechanging #bitcoin #startup #pitches

#bitshares @Dan Larimer
protoshares is it's currency
angelShares shares of bitshare based decentralized companies bitshares AGS angel fund discussions about new DAC models, documentation
bitsharesX - banking DAC
The value of an idea is just the usage of an idea - @Edison
music, pictures, movies, (selling shares in the song, art etc.)
#bitsharesMusic decentralize your radio station

#The Psychology of Money and Value @StefanMolyneux
cash (fiat money) is evil
bitcoin is democracy and freedom
fork of mtgox is good because it aprooves the freedom of bitcoin to fail

#Revolution from Below @JefferyTucker
goverments and the dollars are from 1915
bitcoin is designed for the future
history stopped for 100 years
Cash trained us to live like asholes, no interest, no saving, money value is shrinking - bitcoin will change everything.
To accept bitcoin is like to be the first users of electricity.

#Future of Cryptocurrencies - Andreas M. Antonopoulos @aantonop
Before the end of 2014 a 5 year old will launch his own crypto currency.
We will have millions of alt coins for every imaginable topic.
There is no way to predict which coin will have monetary value.
There is no difference between the dog from doge between the queen on the pound.
Value is not created by issuing, it's created over time through adoption and usage.
Crypto currencies and the concept of blockchain will stay for the next 100 years.
Titel's and ownership transfers are one of the most probably use cases for cryptos.
Bankers see bitcoins as a lemonade stand try's to attack walmart. ? No, same reason like you can't take down the internet.

Thanks to @ExpertDan
Here are some links about mining:
CoinWarz - This shows a profitability comparison between different coins. It will load with my current hashrate and power use. For reference I can build a 2700kh machine for about $1800.

CleverMining - This is the mining pool I'm currently using. It mines scrypt coins and converts them to BTC. They have a chart for their estimated payout rate.

BitcoinWisdom mining calculator - This is useful to calculate the ROI for BTC mining. The hardware numbers aren't quite right but they can give you a reasonable estimate.

- buy angelshares: send btc as donations from my own wallet (not from or coinbase etc)
- buy ethereum
- start a new or invest into bitangels fund
