Suterusu (SUTER) just officially listed on the KuCoin platform. This is the third official exchange listing for SUTER after MXC and Lbank. Suterusu brings ZCash level privacy to any blockchain or application. Check out why this project is so exciting and expected to be a huge game-changer.What is Suterusu?One of the most polarizing debates shaping up for bitcoin’s community will hinge on the extent of privacy that the network should enjoy. The dichotomy of the ideological camps is driven by a desire to cater to KYC standards and government regulators to “legitimize” bitcoin or retain an anonymous privacy-first mentality derived from cypherpunk ethos. But the debate about privacy has some other collateral effects not strictly relegated to bitcoin. For example, cumbersome initiatives to induce privacy features on ethereum are complex, time-consuming, and expensive. Much of the research in ethereum privacy could (and should) also be directed towards more pressing issues like scaling. Networks like Monero and ZCash that bootstrapped advanced privacy out of the gate fair better because they have committed to full privacy. However, they are facing scaling and interoperability problems of their own, and are limited in their audiences. Networks like ethereum and bitcoin already have enormous network effects. Ideally, the solution to onboarding more users should be to focus on pressing problems and let external solutions develop more ancillary services. And that’s precisely where interoperability and flexible (plug-in) tools for privacy become valuable. Enter Suterusu. Appending Advanced Privacy to Layer One Chains We’re no longer solely in the layer two scaling or layer one privacy phase. Projects like Suterusu have launched another state in the development of blockchains. Efficient, standardized, and flexible tools can now be applied to layer one networks independent of their own development stack. Suterusu wields ZK-ConSNARKs, a compact, constant-sized ZK-SNARK (zero-knowledge proof). These innovative proofs have the privacy assurances of ZCash shielded transactions but don’t require a trusted setup or as large of transaction sizes. But that’s only a part of Suterusu’s advantage. The idea is an open framework for launching privacy blockchains or applying Suterusu’s ZK-ConSNARKs to layer one protocols. For example, Suterusu could provide ZCash-level anonymity to transactions on ethereum or bitcoin -- without affecting their network development stack directly. Instead, Suterusu uses a cross-blockchain protocols that enable the anonymous transfer of assets in and out of layer one networks like ethereum. Rather than layering privacy features on top of ethereum’s development stack, increasing complexity and transaction/contract sizes, it functions as an outlet for private assets.The impact on DeFi for networks like ethereum is manifold. Suterusu has modules for enabling DeFi developers to build payment models and other apps with private assets without having to understand the underlying complexity of zero-knowledge proofs (ZKPs). Ostensibly, this means that Suterusu is like the tree trunk of financial privacy to which other networks can plug into (branches) when in a need to issue, transfer, or develop private financial assets. Broadening The Scope of DeFi There’s a reason that dark pools and OTC desks exist besides the benevolent (and contrived) reason of not trying to negatively impact the market. Institutions and other financial entities simply want privacy with some of their transactions -- just like everyone else. But imbuing privacy features into ethereum after its rapidly ballooning blockchain misses the point. Integrating zk-SNARKs into smart contracts and transactions on ethereum will only lead to a cycle of more complex and specious technologies, which incidentally, is currently in the zk-rollup phase. At this point, DeFi users, developers, and entrepreneurs are better served looking outside ethereum for appending privacy to their platforms and associated assets. Suterusu serves this role ideally. The network provides an anonymity-focused complement to ethereum’s surging DeFi community with a much more efficient and flexible approach. If users want to initiate dark pools or private asset swaps, they can simply plug into Suterusu from a DeFi interface on ethereum. Rapid UX improvements are already helping to mask the underlying complexity of lending protocols like Compound and MakerDAO. Privacy should be next on the bucket list. For bitcoin advocates, the privacy battle may ultimately come down to how much adoption privacy-focused coins like Monero and ZCash achieve or if it can maintain its current balancing act of privacy. Suterusu, again, can provide an outlet for achieving privacy on bitcoin without directly impacting its protocol. Similar to Liquid’s CT transactions but built with a hybrid PoW/PoS validation method instead of a federated sidechain (more centralized), Suterusu can open many doors for bitcoin. DeFi applications using bitcoin can become more extensible, and even operate anonymous swaps with other networks like ethereum. That’s highly appealing to anyone looking to increase liquidity and privacy for both chains. In the end, bitcoin’s looming privacy debate and ethereum’s scaling efforts are polarizing affairs. Suterusu is a release valve that provides compact privacy without all the noise and complexity. For the sake of focusing on more pressing needs, such as ethereum 2.0 for the ETH community, these groups should pay more attention to flexible external solutions like Suterusu. ** I am part of the suterusu team and this is OC
Suterusu (SUTER) jus..
Hey Uptrennd, Hope everybody is having a great Tuesday!So i started realising that i was in control of my future and that which surrounds my everyday life, as growing up i did not like school very much and i really did not like having to do as i was told, meaning when i got to my teens i decided i would be better off not going to school and spending most of my school days at a friends house or just generally leaving school during the day to go play football with my mates instead and college even though i got in and passed, i still pretty much messed around the whole time however i had a passion for engineering and electrical work so i did pay attention and complete my studies just had alot of fun doing it hahaI mostly spent alot of my teens working with my dad, learning my trades well beginning to learn my trades anyway.It wasn't until i hit about 22/23 that i started to realise that i had spent most of my life having fun and learning my skills which is not bad but that left me with issues on getting a job in my field and generally having no savings or cash behind me as i would just spend it as fast as it came and at some points in my life it came pretty fast and to make it worse i knew nothing about the world around me or how it works!Weirdly i had always had an interest in the knights Templar and Freemasons history/knowledge as there were some relatives who were Masons and loved history so always had a love for that time line and before like the ancient greeks/egyptians and most importantly "The Sumerians" who were the pioneers of this world as we know it today!This led me down a path of wonder, what if there is way more to life than meets the eye, always having a huge huge love for technology and science, especially astronomy and physics i was starting to understand life or i should say reality is not what you might think it is. There are principals to the universe and what we call reality, once you understand these principals you can see that the thing we call life moves in a guided way and can be manipulated depending on your intentions and perspective."The Seven Hermetic Principles"1. The Principal of Mentalism2. The Principal of Correspondence3. The Principal of Vibration - one of my favourites haha4. The Principal of Polarity5. The Principal of Rhythm6. The Principal of Cause and Effect7. The Principal of GenderThere is an 8th, you have to care about the reality and the actions/intentions you take and put forward into reality so be conscious of what you wish and want.My journey first started with Mark Passio and Natural Law which is basically the principals above just renamed and i spent a good month or two just watching/listening to Mark Passio's content about Natural Law and these principals on how reality can be governed and also used to our advantage depending where you are at mentally and your perspective of course :)This made me wake up and realise i had just been hopelessly wondering through life with no plan or any action towards what my life might look like in 20 years time, all i was doing was bumming around and working months on, months off up until i was about 21 then i met my wife Ruby and boom things started to change in my head... then i really lost myself in Mark Passio's content and diving deeper down the rabbit hole knowing there is more to this and how do i apply to my life (which took me years by the way). I ended up finding this book when i was about 24 called "The Kybalion".https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_KybalionThis is when everything hit home and i later read somewhere that, you don't find this book, it finds you... i mean i was not really looking for it or didnt really know what it was but because it said in the description about the hermetic principals i thought i would check it out, since that day this book has not gone far and i have neglected it since being so involved here at Uptrennd but all those years of growing and apply the knowledge i was obtaining led me to where i am today and here with all you amazing people building this amazing platform, one day for the whole world to use! :D I will keep this relatively short and not go into detail and let you all go looking if you wish and find out more on your own.There is 1 more person i would also like to mention as his knowledge and words of wisdom majorly added to my personal growth and still does to this day and that is Manly P Hall.Secret Powers and Why We Should Not Use Them - One of my favourite lectures and another is, Opening the Doors to the InvisibleSlowly slowly all this knowledge and information started to make sense after years of listening and how i can use my thoughts along with my heart to change my reality, you must first know you really want something and then a small opportunity will present itself at some point in the future, now most say this never works for me and bla bla but most all pass up that small opportunity which in reality is the stepping stone to the thing you actually want. That is how it works, you take small steps and over time that will cover a vast distance. So the next time an opportunity comes your way and you have nothing to lose, go for it and do not look back :)Most things do happen for a reason, even those which confuses us! there are more than likely several reasons for the effect, we just do not understand the cause or have the perspective to see it yet..The Header image was created by Kris J

I often hear friends, acquitances, enemies say they want to seek a greener pasture outside their present location. Those in Nigeria, have found Canada as a place of fulfilment.I, for instance have prayed and wished that I leave the shores of this annoying country to somewhere else just for greener pasture (costs quite a fortune) considering the situation we have found ourselves in.In recent times, the story has changed. Yes, I am still in Nigeria but I have carved a greener pasture for myself.That greener pasture is Uptrennd!It may sound awkward but what I have earned from Uptrennd in the past 6 months, my circular job hasn't achieved that in 2 years.Uptrennd has given me a better standard of living (financially)I have met people from all over the world and it seems more to me like a family My level of exposure and thinking has changed (my thoughts are no longer local or limited) I reach a broader view.My earning from Uptrennd has helped me achieve my dream of the kind of life I want to live.Its amazing to know that the green pasture I have always craved for is right here with me.The only problem I would have to deal with is the harsh weather condition over here. But of course, u can't do anything about it. Its a natural cause.Have you found a green pasture in UPTRENND?
I often hear friends..
