Crowd Machine
The idea behind the decentralized computer has been in the back of of our minds for quite a while. The application of spare processor resource to decentralized computing isn't a new one, that idea has been around for a long time.What's different with Crowd Machine is that we've applied the concept to real time application execution.

When did you first conceptualize the theory/idea behind Crowd Machine? What sparked your thought-process?

if you allow users to share your device to run a app, what security measures would you take from making sure someone doesn’t come in and infect everyone with malware and stealing other peoples information. it seems pretty unsafe which is why you run your own servers

@Kevin-Thrailkill The security approach is not dissimilar to what most mining node implementations employ. We have a closed virtual machine that is isolated from the device, secured using industry standards and then all communication is cryptographically secured as well. The execution pathways are also secured across the network.

Can you explain how the app creation process in your system differs from how most people go about making them?

Crowd Machine
@Rosie-Dale We've removed the need to write code completely. Apps are created using a combination of a graphical representation of logic and responding to a series of questions posed by the Crowd App Studio. It results in allowing a much larger group of people to build apps and it's much faster than traditional development approaches.

Some questions are coming in from Facebook messenger, here is one:

The dApp which was compiled by Crowd Machine, is it independent with Crowd Machine's network? For example, when I make a smart conrat application app on EVM chain with CVM, how does the dApp mechanisms work? Are the smart contract gas prices paid by users? Is CMCT also paid for using the dApp?

Crowd Machine
@Ben-Leff We do not compile a dApp. I'd recommend reading the whitepaper on the Crowd Machine website for detailed information on how the tech works but I'll cover some of the higher level concepts here. You can create a smart contract and eploy it to the Ethereum network for example and then ingest the ABI back into Crowd Machine which then exposes the methods in the contract to the Crowd App Studio for you to make call against. Gas is paid through the Crowd Machine network but for more detail on that I's recommend taking a look at one of the webinars that are available on our social networks. In those webinars we demonstrate how that process works.You can build and test your apps for free on Crowd Machine and only pay CMCT when the apps are deployed to production on the Crowd Machine network.

Thank you, I will pass this along.

@Ben-Leff Thank you for the answer. May I ask you how can I access to webinars you mentioned? Is it on twitter?

Another set of questions coming in from Telegram:

1. when will the vendor market portal be available?

2. Reading sect 5.2.6 of the white paper, I am not clear which part of Crowd Machine is being described in terms of security. The verbiage is broad. Do you have better resource for describing the application of firewalls, authentication for CVM.

3. Do tokens reside at each boundary in Figure 10 from agoric nodes to databases?

@Ben-Leff

1. The vendor market portal will be available in Q3 18. For the most part it is complete as it leverages Crowd Share as its foundation.
2. There is internal documentation that describes the security but not it's publicly available. The computer exists today but right now it's centralized. We have 3rd party penetrations testing, load testing and social engineering testing that is run against the technology as per contractual requirements with some of our larger customers and of course our own peace of mind. We're very focused on security generally as we store HIPAA compliant data.
3. No, tokens do not reside at the boundary. The nodes do act as payment channels for managing payments but tokens are not persisted.

What is the reason behind such token sale structure?

I already read about HIPAA compliancy and understand Crowd Machine is very keen on data security in general. I got some more questions concerning GDPR, how does Crowd Machine offer a data processor the ability to fully comply to subject access requests? Is a data processor in full control of its data and is there any way to audit the full removal of data in regards to a subject removal request? (the right to be forgotten).
