INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTS: Robert Grant, Chairman and Managing Partner of Strathspey Crown with Matt Bird
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 00:00
Welcome back to the Traders Network Show and our continued coverage of Humanity 2.0. I’m Matt Bird broadcasting a worldwide from the Vatican for Equities.com and its affiliate partners. And next guest is the chairman and CEO of Crown Sterling, a data encryption company, Robert Grant, welcome the show. You know, you bring a sense, an element of big data here. You bring an element of science and, and, and protocols. Uh, you’ve been inside for a little while. What’s the takeaway right now? What’s your takeaway from what’s happening?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 00:42
Well, the first thing that I took away just walking in here today and what an incredible place we’re in, right? I mean, this is a pretty historic place, right when you walk in your like “wow”. But, the thing that hit me was that the conversation was going in the direction of what it means to be human being and to be a human being in a world where we’ve all become human doings. You know, it’s really exciting to be talking about what the next evolution of humanity’s going to be. And if we don’t think about it in a sort of presumptive way, we don’t think about it in the future, then we could only ever expect to be subject to the same entropic forces that we consider the universe to be subject to, right? We have to sort of cut a path towards centropy. We have to cut a path towards, uh, determination and intention. And I think that’s what Humanity 2.0 is about. That we’re hoping here to be able to set a path for the next hundred years, 200 years, maybe even millennium, that would actually allow us to be more human beings and bring humanity to other human beings in the world rather than just human doing.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 01:41
Well, I really liked that bringing humanity, being humans, but bringing humanity to other human beings. I mean, that’s, that’s I think you said it earlier and it really rang and rang with me. Um, crown Sterling, you, you, there’s been some chatter in the news. You’ve, why don’t you tell our audience a little bit what you’ve done on the mathematics side because sure. This is kind of groundbreaking stuff. So fill us all in.
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 02:00
Okay. So I published the first prime, infinite and accurate prime prediction algorithm, um, and discovered a new kind of number called “quasi primes”. So prime numbers are distinguished because they are divisible only by one in themselves, but quasi primes are divisible by prime numbers greater than five.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 02:13
Can you boil it down to simple terms?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 02:15
What it means is that up until now we can never predict prime numbers beyond a certain size, right? Right. We’d have to do a huge amount of computer testing that would take up a lot of time. And you know, they would put up a publication saying, we just published this prime number, which is, you know, this size of number with this many digits behind it, you know, to the 43 millions of power, et cetera, et cetera. Now we can actually predict them infinitely. And that’s a big shift in our understanding of mathematics. It has been centuries, not, not only centuries, millennia, old problem, prime numbers of fascinated mathematicians for thousands of years and to have found it in a very simplistic and beautiful pattern, um, which was related to Fibonacci is based on a 24-hour clock. It was a shock for me being the discover of it. Right? Remember, math was not invented. Math is only ever discovered. Some argue that calculus may have been invented because it seems like such a crazy thing to be undertaking. You know, we will blame Leipnetz and, and uh, Isaac Newton for that.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 02:51
I remember my struggles is going to school with, with calculus. Does this mean we have a whole new generation of data encryption coming?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown:: 03:43
Yes it does. In fact, it does because that as well as new understanding of geometry and mathematical constants that has not been here before known in a new paper. That also is that the process of getting published right now, which is called Wave Number Theory. When I discovered the prime number pattern, we also discovered a pattern for all mathematical constants embedded in the same pattern for prime numbers. We had not published it yet because we wanted to do more research on it, but irrational numbers themselves are actually born amid these conjunctions of prime numbers and quasi prime numbers. So twin primes and twin quasi primes and quasi and twin primes.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 04:13
I know enough to get into trouble, but not enough to get out of it. And this statement, but is the wave that wave theory part of the Elliot wave theory?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 04:22
Elliott waves are relational to it, but it’s not necessarily part of the Elliott wave theory. So what we, what we have discovered is that there is an order to the universe that this order can be demonstrated mathematically because there’s getting mathematics, it’s discovered, not invented. So therefore, this order is defining this universe around us, not just in the sense of what we see on a ledger for a balanced statement for a company or a bank, but more importantly to how the universe is constructed around us. And that has bigger even spiritual implications associated with it too. So it’s very, very exciting research. And what it means is that there’s a now a new possibility understanding this new mathematics, new mathematics allows us to have a new encryption standard, which gets to our bigger goal, which is a new encryption to replace the current encryption standards. It’s been around for more than 40 years, literally since gold was, you know, changed as the backing for currency and currencies were allowed to float freely. The only standard that has been there to sort of be backing currency has been encryption and it’s been the same mathematical equations.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 05:30
I kind of sense an enablement platform coming down on the way here. Is that, is that where this is going? A development of have some sort of database enablement?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 05:37
Yes. In fact, we’re all about data sovereignty for consumers. We want everyone to be able to protect their data. We believe that your financial transactions, your email communications, even your geolocation and what you do on a day to day basis should be yours. And it shouldn’t be something that anyone can just sort of take and sort of around, uh, constitutions or bills of rights, you know, four different countries, sovereign nations. So we believe that the consumer now has that opportunity. And we have built a platform called “Time AI”, which will be intended for that as an app that goes onto your phone and now consumers will be able to have their own encryptions which is very exciting time.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 06:16
Time AI. Um, you know, I will say, well, going back to how, uh, laws were created and on the big data side, I mean we’re, we’re going through an industrial revolution right now, at least from, from my eyes. Um, you know, I’ve been fortunate to interview and be in rooms from the UN to the trade department that you parliament. And the thing I’m taking away is that when we wrote these laws, originally it was based upon an environment where data wasn’t as readily available as it is today. We are freely giving all this information out and the laws and regulations of place, we’re never really built to manage that process. And if they were rewritten today would look much different than it would be, you know, then what’s, what’s certain. How do you see that stuff, and I know this is coming off the topic a little bit, but how do you see regulation shifts in the next little while? Because I mean we’re all seeing privacy issues. We’re seeing Facebook every day. We’re seeing Google on fire, which is, you know, fortunately they, they’re here is when they were sponsors. But how do you see regulations shifting?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 07:03
You know, it’s interesting you bring up the, the analogy or, or sort of the historical reference of the founding fathers of many nation States saying, okay, we come up with their own versions of our bills of rights in different countries. I’ve lived in nine different countries, so although I claim to be a citizen of the United States of America, I, I actually aspired just to be a citizen of the world. I love my country though. I will say that. But here’s the thing, you’re right. The dimension of who we are as human beings has now evolved because it didn’t use to be part of who we were, the data, you know, I didn’t have a social media presence.
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 07:50
My dimensionality of who I am as a person in 1776 is very different than my dimensionality and the scope and reach that I have around the world. I mean just on my Instagram following now I have, you know, tens of thousands of people that I can now impact immediately all around the world that I never had before. That’s breaking down boundaries, that’s connecting human beings in ways that are fundamental that we cannot sort of just like walk over and tread over lightly. So this is changing who we are as human beings. So that increased dimentionality that has to then be accompanied by a higher dimension as it were of legal analysis and perspective or
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show:
Do you see, I’m going to kind of put, I want to quantify this? Are we going to see decentralized platforms? Are we going to see stuff like a, an option to pay for Facebook instead of giving your data away?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 08:46
I mean, something needs to give on some level, right? We have the normal way of doing business today, which is we’re giving all this data away freely, right? I mean, so if we, by the way, nothing’s free, nothing is free. No, it’s not. I learned that when I was an MBA school, right? Because there’s this old saying, we say the Miller Modigliani model or Milton Friedman, there no free lunch. Right? Right. There’s no free lunch. So there’s always a quid pro quo. Yup. And if I told you there’s a hundred dollar bill or a hundred year old bill right over there, and I said it loud enough and other people heard me by the time we got over there, that $100 bill would be gone or a hundred year old bill would be gone. There’s nothing that’s free. So what is the problem right now? And I don’t think that that’s necessarily a problem.
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 09:25
I think the problem is, is that people are making a quid pro quo. They’re making an exchange without knowing that that exchange is even happening. That is what is pernicious. So it’s no longer just the black hat actors that are causing the issue. Okay, we have to protect our house against the thieves. It’s now that we have to protect our house against the white high debt, wet white hat actors who walk in the front door and you welcome them in because they have a trusted relationship with you and yet they are in a position to take your data. And then when you say, well, wait a minute, I didn’t agree that you could take this data. Then they say, well no, but you sign the terms and conditions. Everybody of course reads right like 70 sites, seven pages in terms of giving different boxes and 500 boxes you have to parent check, et. And that’s called a contract of adhesion. And we believe that there could be a better way. And that’s what we’re trying to do is we’re trying to build a platform that empowers the consumer and rebalances the deck so that there can be transactions that occur that people will be able to thoughtfully and choice fully walk into those transactions rather than have them be imposed upon them through contracts of adhesion that nobody reads.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 10:08
It can be interesting to see the columns of scale with that to what is the value assigned to certain content and versus the others. I think there’s definitely an ecosystem that is untapped. Uh, and I think, I think in today, in, in, in today’s a millennial driven world and then the side there could potentially be a source of income and modernization for them that they don’t currently have.
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 10:54
When I was in college, A bunch of my friends were like, “Hey, let’s go down on the blood bank and go make some money.” Right? I think there will probably be a future day where we’re going to be like, well, you know, I don’t have it. Yeah. I could sell some of my data. Oh. And at least that’s a choice.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 11:07
And they’re working for free right now. When you look at the self-publishing environment in Instagram, they’re getting free contributors and content.
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 11:16
It’s exploitation, right? It’s explosive without people even knowing that they’ve entered in the exploitation. And remember it’s part of the new dimentionality of what it means to be a human being. So I think it’s a perfect discussion for us to be having here at Humanity 2.0 and you know, for us, we just see a real opportunity to be able to bring data sovereignty and be the first brand that, I mean, first of all, everyone knows that there’s encryption that protects their money in banks and everything they own.
Matt Bird – Show Host, Traders Network Show: 11:54
Well, you got a little bit of unique thing, I mean you’re, you’re birthing a whole new generation of security and that has something to be said. So, but getting back to the, to the Humanity 2.0 listen, we got to wrap up with the commercial break. But I like to do is direct people to Crown Sterling, CrownSterling.IO is that correct? We can learn more about what’s happening in the data world. Everybody Robert Grant the CEO of Crown Sterling. Thanks for coming on the show very much. Hey, by the way, as the bells ringing, is there a little take away you want to give everybody?
Robert Grant – Chairman & Managing Partner, Strathspey Crown: 12:11
You know what, the universe has order behind it. I’ll just leave it at that.
