Truth be told, the reaction was pretty similar to what a new project being launched would be like today. The overwhelming majority of people consider anything that isn't BTC or ETH a shitcoin for the most part. Back then, it was the same thing, but it was BTC or nothing for most. This is the main reason I don't automatically dismiss these new projects, because you never know what the next big thing is. Everybody has to start somewhere and right now, that somewhere is being called a scam by 15 year olds on Reddit. If you take a step back, you realize that BTC and ETH are the current kings, but neither of them really does a great job functionally. BTC is way too slow and ETH is way too expensive for scaling up or mainstream adoption. At some point, somebody will figure out a way to do it better/cheaper/faster/easier and this somebody will eventually take over as one of the top coins. This is pretty much necessary if we ever want to see the masses using crypto. Technology is constantly evolving. The funny part about that is that we often don't realize why something needs to be updated until it actually happens. When everyone was on AIM, nobody realized we needed Myspace. When everyone was on MySpace, nobody realized we needed Facebook. When even more people were on Facebook than any other social network ever, nobody realized we needed a stripped down social media platform likeIG. The world is constantly evolving and cryptocurrency is no exception. In fact, I'd argue that crypto is in need of major upgrades and new blood more than most technical industries.
That video is from 1984 and 15 year later, half of all Americans had internet access. AIM had something like 61 million users by the year 2000 (20% of the population at the time). cryptocurrencies are 15 years old. How do you think the argument that it’s still early holds up with that in mind? I would add, the internet as we know it is much younger than early research. If you consider the internet to have been invented in the 1970s, then it’s only fair to consider cryptocurrencies to have been invented in [1982 when the first blockchain-like protocol was proposed](https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8674176)
Meme coins have taken the place of penny shares on markets like AIM here in the UK, they are literally fugazi until they get bought up in volumes to a point where they have become a self fulfilling prophecy. They are though, usually backed by little more than hype and fomo and have no real world use.
Short answer, Yes. Long answer, maybe, but we need some serious paradigms to shift and we need some serious improvement to the overall UI. The internet was (arguably) invented/created in 1983, but didn't see mainstream adoption until AOL gave the masses a simple, easy, and concise way to access it. They started mailing discs to homes in 1993, reached 5 million members in 1995, merged with time warner in 2001 and in 2006 it became free. This is around the time the internet really started to explode. Then, we got Google. And the term "google' became synonymous with searching for something on the internet. At this point I believe the internet became what it is today. This was all around the early 2000's. Some 20 years after the invention. Now, what changed that caused mass adoption wasn't the underlying protocols of the internet, what changed was ease of use, access, and the UI. It became something the average person could understand, interact with, and *utilize* without any sort of preexisting knowledge or training. Google searches, gmail and AOL mail, Facebook, Amazon, Ebay, all of these companies used the internet protocol to design something anyone could easily interact with and utilize. It is simple. Right now, I think crypto exists somewhere between inception (think 1983 when the protocol was invented) and when the word 'google' became a verb. It is in its infancy. What needs to change? Usability and understandability. We need something like Google, or Facebook, or Amazon to really put crypto over the hump. Coinbase is, IMO, a great start for example. What needs to happen, and this is what I mean by a paradigm shift, is that people need to be able to see, understand, trust, and *use* Coinbase as a bank. Much like that shift happened with Email and chat programs like AIM. It didn't take much time for people to realize that Email was essentially the same thing as snail mail, but just way better in everyway. This shift needs to happen with crypto and unfortunately, I think it will take a centralized entity to really bring it to the masses and properly leverage the protocol, much like AOL and Google did in the early days.
As someone works with cloud analytics modernization, AIM's approach to using AI-powered blockchain tech is a game-changer in our industry. It offers the potential to streamline our data analytics processes and make our work more accurate and insightful. I'm excited to see how this technology will continue to develop and happy to be part of the community, the team showed us efficiency.

I understand that AI technology has been advancing over time, but does no one remember the AIM chatbots? They were super clever and it felt just as authentic as what's out there now imo, and that was two decades ago! I do remember Google showing off it's AI voicebot 4 or 5 years back though, and **that** was super impressive.
I just remember having my mind absolutely brown by AIM messenger. Like for no reason adding my friends username and chatting was the colesterol thing ever. Then Napster and limewire, MySpace, damn what a time that was to be a kid.
Why are there never posts about huobi and OKX. 2 of top 5 largest exchanges. We are going in circles here guys. AIM for something else once. The current ones seem to be ok (except kucoin but they will survive cause nobody wants to pay the withdrawelfee).
Fuck man.. this is me.. Lost everything to two companies sin the AIM index 10 years.. thought I would be brave one more time with Bitcoin.. I only put in 5k.. but that was a lot of many for me.. siting with 0.14 of a bitcoin I think fucking pitiful.
There are plenty of fun games on there already. The mini golf game is pretty fun and playing with friends is casual and entertaining. Onward is a first person shooter that is basically VR counterstrike. Super hot is like a matrix style first person shooter. Lots of causal gaming already on there that people are enjoying. They have a poker game which is very casual. The medium itself is fine and pretty entertaining. The chat room thing is for kids. I grew up in the 90s so to me it's kind of like AIM or the aol chat rooms. The fad will die out eventually, especially after all the creepy old men start infiltrating. But I disagree in your notion it's not for casual gamers. Even my wife enjoys it who uses it for meditation, yoga, and a workout app. She doesn't game at all but enjoys those apps.

It can happen, look at some of the biggest names in the tech world. AIM and MSN messenger have been replaced by Whatsapp. AskJeeves and Yahoo were replaced by Google. Bebo, Myspace were overtaken by Facebook Nokia one of the biggest phone brands is now nowhere to be seen.
As someone who was the same age in 2001 I completely agree. Granted, I didn’t follow markers at all - I was too busy skateboarding and being a delinquent - but I was talking to my friends all the time on AIM/ICQ/MSN. And downloading music and fake celebrity nudes on Limewire and Kazaa. It definitely didn’t feel like there was any uncertainty about the internet going away. Not quite mainstream, but the GET protocol is doing cool stuff with NFT concert tickets. https://www.get-protocol.io/ I feel like I’ve also seen some big acts or sports teams offering free NFT collectables with the purchase of a normal ticket. Maybe the next bull run (if we have one) we’ll see more mainstream adoption in the ticketing space.
I am crypto-skeptic and I turned 16 in 2001 during the dot com crash. As I remember things were great until 911 and everything changed. At 16 the market crashing didn't mean much and I was more concerned with going to war. Here is the staggering difference from my perspective: in 2001 I spent a tremendous amount of my life online. I communicated with my friends almost exclusively through AIM or Yahoo! Messenger. IRCC my sister was taking online classes, either way I know they were offered and most of all of the professors required email access to participate in classes. I could go on and on but ultimately the internet was NOT going away and it felt like everyone knew that. Sure there were failed ideas but by 2001 the internet was an everyday part of my life in rural Michigan. Crypto? I just finished the Freakonomics 3 part series and the only thing I heard that was anywhere remotely new was you could trade tokens to share your wifi access. I don't think that solves any major problems that haven't already been addressed. Even when the crypto pumpers spoke it was still speculative on what we could do. In 2001 the web was doing it, not speculating. I am sure there are applications to the block chain that could be valuable (Freakonomics mentioned property titles on the block chain and it intrigued me) but it's so overhyped at this point. NFTs have been around long enough, why haven't I seen them used as concert tickets? The argument was compelling that they'd be a great way to minimize fraud and scalping. Well this is capitalism, if it was so great it would have been done by now. Just my two cents. Crypto has yet to impress me as I stand on the sidelines.
In 2001 I used the internet constantly. I was on a shared collegiate network where I could download virtually any movie, tv show, or song (not to mention porn). AIM was huge, every had it. Email was used in my courses. We played Warcraft over LAN. And you could look up pretty much anytime online for research.
As usual, it was heavily adopted by the younger crowd first. I was a teen in the late 90s and everyone I knew used AIM to chat with each other and made our own custom websites on Geocities and Angelfire and the like, while the boomers were the ones who weren't even aware what a web browser was or how to install one.
How old are you? We don’t need to watch a documentary to know what the internet was like in 2000 LOL! It was widely adopted and used by just about everyone. We all had email, AIM, online gaming, etc as integral parts of our lives. Voices saying otherwise would have been seen as kooks or attention-seeking contrarians.
Yes and no. AOL never managed to come up with a good way to lock people in. They tried to do the email thing (but you could still have an AOL email), the AIM thing (same), and the homepage thing (but weren't unique - most news providers, eg, were on both AOL homepage and MSN). ETH has value actually locked to a degree. Liquidity locked to ETH would be a bear to move elsewhere. Devs and auditors that have become experts on Ethereum would need to rework skills for most other chains (there are a couple fully EVM compatible exceptions). Network security in blockchain literally depends on market cap, so even an exact clone is less secure. Finally, being known is critical - you can copy an NFT's jpeg, but the "value" is currently ascribed to real owner on the real blockhain - for most big NFT collections right now, the 'real' blockchain is usually ethereum. Bac to your metaphor: it's not pets.com or AOL. There's some chance it's friendster, and there's some chance it's Facebook. I'm betting on FB-like in the metaphor... time will tell!
Even I used the internet at school in the library for research papers but you'd be hard pressed to find many people who even had an email address in 2000. It just wasn't as common for people to have home internet until there were more fun time consuming thing to do like pirate music, AIM or Yahoo chat, MySpace. Crypto if it want some kind of mass adoption needs to offer simple cheap entertainment for the masses.
I think it depends where you grew up. MSN messenger was outside of the US more popular than AIM. Just like how apple messenger is insanely popular in the US but here in europe almost nobody uses it, we mostly use whatsapp here.
Our image now of it, yea shitty website lol Back then tho… my god, MySpace and AIM after school was the thing. Hurricane Katrina hit my area hard, amazing what that showed teenage me about the importance of the internet when I literally could have lost half my friendships based upon moving alone, was able to keep in touch and it was amazing
I don't know if there's a generally agreed on boundary, and there's bound to be overlap. Also, this is written for marketing people vs tech people or historians so there's bound to be some details that are overlooked or smooshed together. I will say though, one key difference between modern chat vs pre-2000 chat is the general mode of operation. Modern chat platforms are more like text messaging- usually more personal, usually among people you know, less of a scrolling wall of strangers having conversations. IRC was the dominant chat platform for a while and the only platform left that's similar is discord, which is definitely much more centralized (at least as far as identity, hosting is slightly more decentralized than identity but only a little less decentralized than IRC). ICQ and AIM were the most similar to modern chat apps imo.
tldr; Bloomberg and Elwood Technologies have announced a strategic integration enabling investments from clients using Elwood’s market-leading cryptocurrency trading platform to flow directly into Bloomberg AIM. Elwood will adopt the Financial Instrument Global Identifier (FIGI) for crypto assets as the common identifier for the integration. The integration is expected to be completed and available for mutual clients in Q2 2022. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

tldr; Elwood Technologies, the crypto-focused technology firm owned by hedge fund heavyweight Alan Howard, announced a "strategic integration" on Thursday with Bloomberg. The integration is geared toward the institutional clients who use Bloomberg's AIM, a buy-side order management system used by about 15,000 clients who manage more than $17 trillion in assets. *This summary is auto generated by a bot and not meant to replace reading the original article.

So I assume what you're talking about is when Bill Gates, Larry Page, Eric Schmitt, Steve Jobs, etc were all big proponents of the internet, and of course the news talking heads were saying contrarian talking points. But that wasn't the sentiment. Like I grew up in rural Texas, and was a teenager in 1995. I remember when AIM came out, you'd hop online and jump into message boards, maybe visit some shitty websites to kill time. And chat with your friends from school. The internet was actually adopted pretty rapidly because it filled a void. Bitcoin doesn't really fill functional voids. It's a libertarian alternative, and the general public just doesn't care about it from a functional standpoint. I think it's really a false comparison. Not saying that it doesn't eventually become widely adopted, but not in the same ways the internet was. The thing is, blockchain and decentralized networks don't really rely on bitcoin to be implemented. Take IPFS, for example. It's a decentralized caching/storage network. Extremely useful for hosting files. It came about after bitcoin, you could make a case to where bitcoin could have been used for it's implementation, but it's actually just makes much more sense to to
> You make your buys and accept your fate. Yes, much better to "accept your fate" than you know, actually react to new information. Better to lose everything on blind loyalty than engage your brain for one picosecond. >Being 'loyal' to an investment comes with 20 years of experience trading the FTSE, AIM, FOREX and US markets. How do you be "loyal" to foreign exchange?
Being 'loyal' to an investment comes with 20 years of experience trading the FTSE, AIM, FOREX and US markets. You make your buys and accept your fate. The only reason I still occasionally day trade and use leverage is because crypto is the golden goose that keeps laying those eggs. ​ ![gif](giphy|KEGZsyTcpZIcsVpTAx|downsized)
IMO the way the UK FCA are behaving they don't want to be associated with Crypto/Blockchain, and even though the UK FCA don't have much say in Gibraltar they seems quite happy to turn a blind eye to idea of Gibraltar been a Crypto haven. If you read this again **page 42 - Tokenising bonds: the case of the Nivaura ETH-denominated bond** you'll notice the UK Financial Conduct Authority being mentioned as already issuing a Tokenised stock in a sandboxed environment, so they have been dabbling all but with it a third party in a test environment. [https://www.oecd.org/finance/The-Tokenisation-of-Assets-and-Potential-Implications-for-Financial-Markets.pdf](https://www.oecd.org/finance/The-Tokenisation-of-Assets-and-Potential-Implications-for-Financial-Markets.pdf) Its also my understanding that LSE/AIM/FTSE are very averse to Crypto/Blockchain listing hence why RP remained on AQUIS, again IMO, VLRM buying the Gilbrator Stock will in effect be listing GS on AQUIS bringing it into London via backdoor So much at play but pure speculation BTW until the further news is released.
By this logic, we've been potentially been in the metaverse for decade(s). Back in the 2000s people were glued to computers, chatting on IRC, AIM, etc. Kind of metaversy. And with the rise and dominance of smartphones, we're certainly there -- EVERYONE is on a smartphone, kids to senior citizens. Go on a subway in NYC, almost everyone's neck is titled down at a smartphone. On top of that, we have "AI" like Siri and Alexa at our fingertips or in the rooms of our homes, always watching. However, to me, this isn't the metaverse, although I can see why others might think so. I think a jump to a metaverse requires another step that hasn't appeared yet — I'd wager something like Google Glasses becoming widely adopted the way smartphones have, so that our waking life is seamlessly connected with the metaverse. Whereas today you still have to pick up that smartphone or log into a computer; the physical barrier creates some separation.
I was a day trader for more than 20 years ... in all markets. Traditional, investment, AIM, Futures, Forex and crypto. Risk exposure is all about TA, research and honed instinct. understanding global economics is also fundamental. If you took out a loan to buy crypto, it means you did your research, understood the risks and make an educated gamble based on the information and insight gained from that research.
> Lol none of your comparisons make any sense. Even BTC, the most "stable" cryptocurrency, is more volatile and unpredictable than 99% of fiat currencies out there. Compared to what? It's completely predictable. The tokenomics are predictable, the ledger is predictable. A bank run is impossible. Once you own the coins, they can't be taken away. > Unless you're from a country with a collapsing economy - which most are not - your fiat is much safer than crypto. All economies require money to be printed every year. > Something that can tomorrow be worth half of what it's worth today is not safe. The protocol is completely safe. It stays safe. > It's not a safe currency's job to go up. Exactly > You're still painfully delusional, spouting complete bullshit, and need a reality check. You're painfully delusional. All I did was point out that is WAS THE EXPLICIT STATED AIM OF THE INVENTOR OF BITCOIN. You're allowed to think that the inventor of bitcoin was delusional. You're allowed to think that I'm delusional. But nothing you've said has elevated the problems for fiat currency and bank runs, and governments printing money because of the investment mistakes of the richest people in society.
Old enough to know that AOL was a failure because they couldn’t capitalize on its users. They were only selling internet services. Other newer companies were using the consumer as the product. Google was using user data and selling user data as a means of expanding their company and network. The more “free” services and apps you use for their company, the more data they have on you. The more data they have on you, the more they can use your data to sell to others. AOL was a one trick pony with AIM and premium AOL user perks that AIM users didn’t have. Also, AOL couldn’t keep up with technology because they invested their infrastructure with 56K dialup. Once DSL and cable connections came along, they got wrecked. That’s different than Bitcoin because Bitcoin is ever adapting and evolving. The protocol is the same, but developers and users are constantly adapting new features if it’s safe enough for the protocol. All these cryptos are just a test bed for Bitcoin because if they’re successful, Bitcoin can just adopt it and eradicate all the competition.
You know that feature that shows you the other person is typing? iMessage, Skype, Teams, etc…. That was invented at AOL for AIM. When it went into production testing it crashed the network. Now it’s all over. Shit happens. When they went to detonate the first atomic bomb, they weren’t sure if it would cause a chain reaction and destroy the earth. Luckily shit didn’t happen. OP: my superpower is hindsight
1 week until the AIM summit in Dubai. Speakers include those from Tezos, Galaxy Digital, MARA, Hut 8, Coinbase, news correspondents from CNBC, CNN, and Bloomberg, among others. It'll be interesting to see if there will be an influx of new investors from the UAE, seeing as regulators there recently approved crypto trading a couple weeks ago.
People are dumb. I was doing a workshop thing on how to assess arguments. Handed out a bunch of paragraphs with sample arguments like "breast milk replacements cause infertility therefore they shouldn't be used even if working mothers don't have time to breast feed"... and despite the whole AIM of the session being to critique the arguments (are they valid, sound, etc), and having told them the aim and what to look out for, people were just like "oh that one is true because it says they cause infertility"... like what the actual fuck!?! It's no wonder people read on here and conclude "bitcoin is going to crash because of Evergrande" because \*it says so\*. Argh. My brain.
I’m terrible at timing dips, all the way back in the early 2000’s when I played with AIM stocks. So I just invest what I can afford to lose against a diversified high to low risk portfolio and hope I’m right when the full time whistle blows.
