https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vnBtOK_9CXQM After taking a hiatus from livestreaming, CoinGeek\u2019s Chief Historian Kurt Wuckert Jr. made his return on April 28 for a special pop-up livestream with Ardian Tola, the creator of Arkstream and the recently launched Canonic. This livestream is very special because Tola makes a big announcement\u2014Canonic has launched the NFTs for \u201cI Know This Sounds Crazy,\u201d the very first book released on Canonic.\u00a0\u00a0 Tola is an up-and-coming Bitcoin businessman as well as one of the best thinkers in the space. He kicks off the livestream by talking about his journey into Bitcoin and what Arkstream is. \u201cArk is still in beta, a closed private beta. We are not prepared to talk about its roadmap but keep your fingers on the pulse. Right now, it\u2019s basically a place where you can store the most important information that you find, on-chain,\u201d said Tola. \u201cFor example, if you find an article, you can store that article on-chain in your private encrypted, drop-box\u2013if you want to think about it that way. You can discover data; data you discover can come from the Arkstream itself or other streams within Bitcoin, so think of Ark as an aggregator of information, where you can find the best information available on-chain, save it there, and keep it for future reference to build.\u201d \u201cThe best descriptor that I\u2019ve heard of it is a tool for magicians, and if you understand the power of ideas and the power of memes to shape reality, then you understand that there\u2019s a lot of power in having a layer where you always have control over a certain of information that you can then access time and time again.\u201d Tola also discussed Canonic, and the very successful release of \u201cI Know This Sounds Crazy,\u201d the very first physical book with an accompanying NFT released via Canonic\u2013a marketplace where authors can \u201cself publish on Bitcoin.\u201d https:\/\/twitter.com\/canonicxyz\/status\/1372231575564341248 \u201cWe had a limited run of the book, 100 copies, and whoever purchased the book, they got an e-book, and they got a promise for an NFT. The big reveal is today we launched the NFT of that book and now all of the first individuals who purchased this, now they will be able to physically redeem the book, or, they can sell the NFT on the secondary marketplace that we have on Canonic,\u201d said Tola. \u201cThis is a very important book, not just for the history of Bitcoin but for the history of publishing, because it's allowing Bitcoin to change what publishing becomes.\u201d Beyond publishing, Tola and his team are looking to disrupt ISBN. ISBN is the unique identifier that connects all of the publishing industry. Distributors, publishers, and sellers use the ISBN to identify books and the value associated with those books. But Tola and his team have created the BSBN\u2014the Bitcoin standard book number\u2014a mechanism to identify books on-chain.\u00a0 Tola goes on to talk about disrupting the publishing industry and how Bitcoin makes it possible to accomplish that disruption. He also talks about philosophy, or as the Bitcoin community has recently been calling it, squares and circles. Overall, Ardian Tola\u2019s conversation with Kurt paints the picture of what both Arkstream and Canonic are and what they are on the road to becoming. Tola also mentions what we may be seeing more of on Canonic in the future as well as how the philosophy he speaks about in the episode ties back into Bitcoin. This livestream gives the audience a great opportunity to learn more about Tola and his Bitcoin businesses, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about how Bitcoin can disrupt the publishing and data storage industries as well as individuals that like squares and circles.
