Dealing with Roads Carnage in Kenya: Sensor-driven Bumps


Kenyan roads are tombs. Hundreds of Kenyans died between Nairobi and Eldoret, Nairobi and Nyeri and Nairobi and Mombasa in the festive season of December.

Part of that problem is the drivers.

Partly, the roads are to blame.

Then there is the police.

Corrupt. Inept and simply incapable.

There is the whole morass of the driving licencing that needs a surgical overhaul.

Welcome to technology.

How have Road Bumps helped?

They cause more accidents because they are poorly designed, are too many and mostly not sturdy enough so they wear out.

How about some intelligent road bumps?

They are built into the roads. They have sensors for speed. If a car is speeding too fast, it rises to slow it down. If no speed breach is noticed, it is a smooth road!

Forget Eurobond, Blockchain's Initial Country (County) Offerings a new crowdfunding tool!

The Kenya government has once approached the international donors to sell Kenyan debt in what was called the EUROBOND. That colossal sums of money were lost between the buyers and the Central Bank/Treasury is no secret.

What we all know though, is that the Mguu Tupus of Kenya are paying the EUROBOND loard billions in money that was not 100% deployed to better their lives.

Besides, EUROBOND, like any other instrument of debt financing is expensive and it will take decades to repay. Probably more money needs to be borrowed to finance that debt. It is a vicious cycle.

Enter Blockchain. And Tokens. And Cryptocurrencies.

Today, anybody with a smart idea, from starting a cloud storage server to setting up a food processing plant to establishing a shipping line is running to the one hot area that is revolutionising the world: Blockchain technology.

You already know of Bitcoin and Ripple. That is money.

I have talked about how Blockchain can help in the war against official and unofficial corruption.

Ideally, in Blockchain technology, there is NO need for trust. Computers are negotiating contracts and signing.

Smart contracting. Call it mining if you like.

More computers hold copies of ledgers with entries of marriage certificates, birth certificates, land title deeds, education certificates.

Name it.

All copies.

Thousands, even millions.

You forge on one server, the rest of the "unforged" servers reject it. Invalid.

You can't bribe the servers!

So how does it work on debt?

Let us take one example.

A company is coming up which is going to manage assets. It is called Swissborg, based, yes you guessed right, out of Switzerland. A groupd of guys with impeccable credentials came together with this ambition.

But theycould reach millions on online funds through an
ICO (Initial Coin Offering). I bought in. 60,000 other netizens bought in. Different amounts. Total? 60,000,000, CHF (1CHF=US$). Just like that. Some KShs 6 billion was raised by so many of us who have not, and likely won't, meet them.

But we bought their idea and invested in it in exchange for TOKENS! Strangers buying from strangers. No need for trust of the traders. It is machine trust!

So I am just thinking.
Nandi Coin
Uhuru Coin
Harambee Coin
Taifa Coin
Jenga Coin
Utalii Coin
Jambo Coin

Do you see where I an going with this?

The Blockchain is today's fundraising tool. Can't the Nation-State embrace this and deploy it to raise funds for development?

Can't counties like my native Nandi County issue a Token based on Blockchain Smart Contracting to raise money for infrastructure development?

Can't Kenya use this to also raise some Bonga Points on our dwindling tourism sector?

It is time for "Intitial Country Coin", or better still "Intial County Coin", the ICO that countries and counties can use to finance debt and crowdfund.

You heard it here first!

My cryptocurrencies investment portfolio strategy for 2018

In 2018, I am diving into Crypto with a bang. I have adopted a 40-30-20-10 strategy distributing my investments into coins-ICOs-mining and trade, respectively.

40%: On coins, I have split my money three-way: Mature coins (Bitcoin, Ethereum & Litecoin), emerging but exploding coins (Ripple XRP; Stellar XLM; MIOTA IOTA and Enigma ENG); TRX and ADA

I am also invested heavily in SNT. The beauty with these sub-10$ and sub-1$ coins is that their growth is MASSIVE.

Be clever, monitor coins at Traders like Binance or simply at www.CoinMarketcap.com

I bought these at Binance. You can also get there and I'd appreciate you using myreferral: https://www.binance.com/?ref=17571703

I have most of my BTC, ETH and LTC at Coinbase. 

30%: I have already spoken of my ICOs: 
1. Swissborg
2. Crypterium

I am waiting to join 
1. Cypherium 
2. ATFS

20%: I do my mining at Genesis Mining

10%: I trade, mostly for XRP, at eToro and you and I could get 20$ if you use this referral: http://etoro.tw/2Cb7t83

Watch it and decide whether you want to be left behind

I am now hooked to Ian. Like a religion. You better too. Why? Watch and tell me. And if you like him, subscribe to his incredible videos and enable notifications in order to be informed when he has a new release!

My top three ICOs for 2018

One of the best ways to invest in cryptocurrencies is to get onboard an ICO (initial coin offering). It's a risky business. 
  • Because most start and due soon after
  • Because a lot of them are scams
  • Because they're just paper Tigers with no execution strategy.
  • Because they're just that, a trust trade exploiting the goodwill of a techpreneurial enthusiasm.
  • Because they just fail.
Most do.
But why invest in ICO?
According to Inc, the returns are phenomenal. As I always say, risk and opportunity are twins!

The gains in digital currencies appear to be experiencing their own bubble. In 2017 alone, currency traders and speculative investors such are quick to point out the following returns:
  • 8,294% in Quark
  • 13,595% in FastCoin
  • 5,683% in Asch
  • 8,313% in MediterraneanCoin
  • 5,248% in NoLimitCoin
  • 6,045% in MaxCoin
  • 7,477% in Golem coins
  • 11,328% in Decred coins
  • 6,792% in WorldCoin
  • 75,063% in Cryptonite
  • 59,577% in Influxcoin
  • And 823,750% in DubaiCoin

In 2018, I'm putting my money on three:
  • I already invested in, and I invite you to join Swissborg, link https://ico.swissborg.com/. Use this link to get a 5% bonus for yourself and I'll also get it.

Ripple is blowing the roof on its way up!

In one of those days that you can call "a very good day", or as we say in Nandi "ya kaa ekta kieet goorgo", Ripple has been blowing the roof at eToro.

Already, by market capitalisation, it overtook Ethereum to place second behind Bitcoin.

Over Christmas, I invested some 200$. A short while ago, this is what I saw at eToro on my investment.

I'm smiling today!
