去中心化正在成为一种新的流行。

从货币到交易,去中心化趋势正急风骤雨般迅速席卷各个行业(点击查看BlockChange相关报道《为什么说去中心化很重要》)。

而其挟裹的巨大能量与其诞生之处——金融业密不可分。这一天生与利益紧密联系的领域激发着所有人的占有欲望。

除了对利益的占有,另一种人类的原始本能——情欲很可能催生区块链的第一个杀手级应用。

其实自古以来,情欲和技术总是密不可分,无论何时出现的交流新技术,一般都在“情欲”的助力下“飞入寻常百姓家”。

让我们先来回忆一下技术和色情相互促进的历史。

为什么说加密技术的首个杀手级应用会出现在色情行业?

古登堡色情材料打印装置

在古登堡发明了色情材料打印机器五十年后,意大利作家Piertro Arentino为我们带来了许多色情书籍。之后相机一发明,人类就开始创作色情照片。在1874年,一个伦敦小电影行业的老司机因为发行了13万张色情照片被风化纠察队枪毙。

但实际上情欲和科技的故事可以追溯到更久之前。我们总以为色情片是现代发明。但事实并非如此。

当人类会绘画和雕塑时,他们已经开始描绘或者雕刻人们“不可描述”的场景了。

我们发掘整理了几乎所有人类文明中,关于情欲的多样艺术形态

为什么说加密技术的首个杀手级应用会出现在色情行业?

一些古希腊瓷器上绘画的莱斯波斯岛,你妈妈不想让你看到的瓷器

无论是古希腊色情瓷器上所绘画的人,印度的性寺庙,都灵纸莎草性爱全书中柔软得不可思议的埃及人(连Brazzers House(国外某著名小黄片网站)都望其项背),德川幕府时期露骨的木刻春宫图,或是中国古代小说《金瓶梅》,艺术家们总是尽情游弋在人类赤裸而又荒诞的光荣性史中,并向世人展示。

迄今为止发现最古老的壁画中,人类在一个纵深的洞穴里展现了迷幻的性爱白日梦——2万8千年前的澳洲土著就充分说明,人类的对爱的脑补是自古有之的传统。

也许把绘画和雕塑视为科学有些奇怪,但是它们可以是类科学,笔就是工具。纸张的发明从根本上改变了人类记录的方式,让那些珍贵的思想不再随着人类的死亡而消逝。

但科学也包含了量变和质变。

工匠们使用了各种方法,按照想象改造材料,为人类创造了印有蓝色花纹的明朝花瓶以及瓷器,精美绝伦。瓷器也需是人类发明的第一种合成材料,将黏土、长石、骨灰、石英以及其他的材料混合,然后加热至上千度,它们就能转换成一种完美的新材料,这就是最好的类科学。

随着时代不同,人们对于情欲的态度总是有起有落,态度时而开放时而保守。但是对于肉欲的火热激情却不会湮灭。无论世间对我们最原始的本性进行多强的抑制,火焰永不会熄灭,本性总会指引我们找到出路。

实际上,对于情欲的完全控制是一种相对来说比较新的现象。追溯到更早的时代,社会对于情欲的态度与对其他欲望的态度并无二致。

维多利亚时代人们的教条陈规破坏了人们对情爱的追捧。

从维多利亚时代开始,社会视性暴露为异端。虽然很多国家禁止某些性行为,但仅仅观看裸体女郎图片并不是重罪,直到在抑制罪恶协会这个扫兴的组织的坚持下,1857年英国通过了淫秽作品法(1857年)。这个法令禁止色情片的销售和传播,并且给予法院收缴并销毁它们的权利。

随着二十世纪的到来,从中国到印度,越来越多的国家开始了全新高度的反性长期抗战,以摧枯拉朽之式打击色情产业,中国的超级防火墙禁止了上百万个成人网站,印度明令禁止使用WhatsApp传播淫秽图片。

但是哪里有压迫哪里就有反抗,每当你有张良计,我便有过墙梯,一些有趣的事情发生了。

在过去,色情仅仅是新技术应用的领域之一,但是随着现代社会对欲望的压抑愈演愈烈,人们转而向新技术求助以越过重重阻碍。

吸引中国男性翻阅围墙的,是苍老师

在如今20世纪,色情产业不再转移市场,它们自身就在创造市场。

在第二次世界大战后,8mm家庭摄影机就开始席卷商业市场。最大的用途之一不是拍摄在花园和家人度过的悠闲日子,或是在家中后院野餐烤肉的快乐时光,而是嘿嘿哈。不久之后,相机商铺就开始存储色情短片,并促进了电影放映机、屏幕及其他周边产品的销售量增长。

1953年,一位年轻的创业者休海夫纳用毕生存储5000美金,购买了女神玛丽莲梦露的裸体照,作为《花花公子》杂志的创刊号头条。随后开始了常年与联邦政府、州政府以及当地政府在邮局展开的游击战。从1800开始生效的猥亵法规定了通过邮件传播淫秽材料的违法性。但是在1957年,最高法院出规国会只能禁止“完全没有社会重要价值”的东西。现在,整个美利坚的男人们终于能在家中浴室里偷偷地翻看《花花公子》了。

为什么说加密技术的首个杀手级应用会出现在色情行业?

1970年是家庭视频播放器崛起的一年,也是Betamax和VHS两种是视频格式斗争的一年。Betamax能够提供更高画质的影片,但是只支持播放60分钟,而VHS的画质差得多,但是能够播放3个小时。Sony掌握了Betamax格式的所有权,但是他们做了一个极其错误的决定——拒绝在该平台上制作任何成人色情材料。

结果呢?

在20世纪70年代末,成人电影占据了美国录像带销量的半壁江山,尽管播放器的成本可达到昂贵的800美元。

可惜啊可惜,Betamax因此必死无疑。

而且我们都知道,统治互联网的不是猫,而是色情片。

单单是Pornhub(北美流量最大的成人网站),2017年平均每天就有810万访问者(一年有285亿),被搜索247亿次,相当于每分钟搜索5万次,每秒钟800次。

我们已经充分体会到这个产业对于VR(虚拟现实)的市场推动作用,比如说Oculus以及Vive并没有在大型游戏或者世界级应用上得到重视,但是它们已经在色情产业受到极大地追捧,通过一个昂贵的头盔,它能够让你与你最爱的成人影片演员在你侬我侬的清晨中醒来。作为全球第一家把分散区块链用于小黄片匿名上传和传播的平台,Okoin已经把VR视为色情帝国加密的一种方式,其目前已经获得了330万美元的资金支持。

但是一个新技术在色情产业的应用让主流社会看到,它也许可能成为加密技术未来完美的突破性应用:电商产业。

当亚马逊仅仅只是Jeff Bezo的灵光一闪时,Richard J. Gordon已经在20世纪90年代创造了第一个电子信用卡系统,而他最早的用户是谁?

X-rated娱乐公司(最大的成人电影生厂商)。

依托于大大小小公司的委托,Gordon得以发家致富,其中包括大型网站ClubLove,它在1998年发布了名不见经传的Pam和Tommy Lee两天性交的录像带,发表后大受欢迎,几乎人手一部。

如今付款渠道以及大型成人网站对这个产业形成了垄断,快要榨干了艺人们的收入。成人网站对人气演员的抽成高达50%,这比社会主义时期法国的最高税收等级都要高,这意味着成人电影的艺人们需要付出相当于以前两倍的努力才能勉强过活。

放高利贷的人都没有收那么多。

去中心化的色情革命

当然,现在许多加密技术供应商的费率比垄断者们有竞争优势得多。SpankChain希望把交易成本从50%降低到5%”,也就是说许多成人超级巨星们被榨取的钱都真正进入他们的口袋。他们已经吸引一批最成功的成人影片巨星作为代言人,并且在这个领域中大受关注。

但是另一个人人关注的问题可能才是真正让色情产业与加密技术完美结合的原因:隐私性

穿上军用大衣,在雨幕中偷偷摸摸地到当地成人电影院已是过去式,但CR让人们能够在自己家就能观看色情影片。信用卡提供了购买色情片的极大便利,但是月末的信用卡账单却可能让一个男人陷入麻烦。

这就是为什么诸如Monero,Zcash和ZCoin的加密网站极有可能在未来成为所有色情片交易的中流砥柱。如今排名靠前的大型色情网站或者去中心化色情网站表层的加密支付渠道能够极大降低高利贷者的放贷利率。

催促色情娱乐公司尽快加入去中心化支付行列中的另一个原因是:公司道德规范。

在一篇关于SpanChain的博客中,一个成人影片巨星说道:“商业世界能够用任何理由把我们枪毙掉,包括但不限于银行或者付款渠道。”

相反的,区块链是开放且不可知的,没有任何道德权威方能够知道到底谁用过Monero。这个特性尤其适用于那些由于不可抗力因素而无法开业的公司。

但是“用后即焚”的支付仅仅是区块链在这个行业应用的冰山一角。

因为加密货币可编程的特性以及微交易的发明,色情产业以及其他相同境地之下的主流产业发现了创造新收入的重要渠道。

例如广告投放。

如今广告似乎就是一条单行道,广告商们付钱给一个集中性网站,然后把他们的广告塞到每个人的喉咙上,最后获得极低的回报。即使是最好的广告也只能从点击和转化中获得微不足道的收益。人们厌烦广告,而浏览器拦截插件的存在就昭示了我们是有多讨厌广告。

即使是在Google,这个建立在广告利润上的帝国,在它自己的浏览器中都有广告拦截插件,你就知道这个世界是有多厌烦赤裸裸的广告行为了。

但如果仅仅是牺牲一下你的注意力,你就能获得报酬呢?如果你这是看一下广告,然后投一下票,你就能获得报酬,不管是你否喜欢这个广告,你是否还是会厌烦?

今天,如果你点击了一个广告并选择“不再显示此广告”,它极有可能还是会出现在你的手机上或者Facebook推送上。微交易会从根本上解决这些问题,因为这就是诸如BAT(Basic Attention Token)的注意力经济货币平台建立的最基本前提。广告的评价被保存在去中心化的信用银行中,并且它将越来越重要,因为只有最好的、最吸引注意力的广告才有可能出现在用户面前。

Vice Token似乎已经有了正确的答案——我付钱,你看片。

像Vice Token所提供的微支付货币不可能成为法定货币,这样的交易方式会毁灭任何商业模式,垄断信用卡公司将迅速断绝与每秒发送上万个微支付交易公司的关系。如果你想成立一个网站,让用户可以只给观看过的视频付钱,基本上是不可能的,因为大量的月度注册费才是支撑电商世界留存的根基。

这只是微支付无数可能性中的一个。

使用加密技术的网站能够让人们为他们想看的影片流量付钱,而不是承担给昂贵的会员注册费。另一个想法是按照与一个演员度过的时间付钱,不管是10分钟还是10个小时。

哪个会成功呢?是我提到的专注色情产业的货币会成功,还是一个诸如Monero的一般支付系统会成为色情狂热分子的默认货币?也许是两个的混合体,人们在后台完成秘密交换,使用一般货币去购买虚拟货币。

但是毫无疑问的是,未来的色情片爱好者、演员等相关人员将无法抗拒去中心化平台的魅力。不管是因为隐私、低费率还是根据观看内容付费,只想为受欢迎的内容付钱,色情产业将是加密技术的最完美试验田。

当然,色情产业的先驱者们将在不远的未来成为主流市场的商业模范。

这意味着60年代的口号错了。

革命将会在电视上播放。

或者至少是以流量的方式。
