          The Bitcoin fork        
If you're interested in crypto-currencies, then maybe you've heard about this. If not, then maybe you want to watch this video to learn how a decentralized (=no government monopoly power) currency evolves.

This site is tracking the fork(s), which are set to occur in the next few days and months (depending on the definition).

Here, btw, is a very entertaining site that will explain Ethereum (another crypto currency) according to whether you're a scammer, nerd, artist, etc.

          The Regulators Are Coming for Bitcoin        
Last month, in my series on Bitcoin, I wrote that for the crypto-currency to succeed it will one day have to become trusted by more mainstream consumers, which requires adding such features as regulatory oversight and a centralized monetary authority—the very features of other currencies that Bitcoin was created to avoid.

          Bitcoin Smashes New Value Record!        

The value of the Bitcoin has never been greater! Bitcoin, the digital crypto-currency has hit a new high. In a manner that is baffling both investors and tempting those peeking through the window of mining, the value of the digital currency continues to grow. So what is it exactly that is sustaining this growth? Particularly […]

The post Bitcoin Smashes New Value Record! appeared first on eTeknix.

          Decentralized Long-Term Preservation        
Lambert Heller is correct to point out that:
name allocation using IPFS or a blockchain is not necessarily linked to the guarantee of permanent availability, the latter must be offered as a separate service.
Storage isn't free, and thus the "separate services" need to have a viable business model. I have demonstrated that increasing returns to scale mean that the "separate service" market will end up being dominated by a few large providers just as, for example, the Bitcoin mining market is. People who don't like this conclusion often argue that, at least for long-term preservation of scholarly resources, the service will be provided by a consortium of libraries, museums and archives. Below the fold I look into how this might work.

These institutions would act in the public interest rather than for profit, and thus somehow be exempt from the effects of increasing returns to scale. Given the budget pressures these institutions are under, I'm skeptical. But lets assume that they are magically exempt.

The whole point of truly decentralized peer-to-peer systems is that they cannot be centrally managed; for example by a consortium of libraries. A system of this kind needs management that arises spontaneously by the effect of its built-in incentives on each individual participant. Among the functions that this spontaneous management needs to perform for a long-term storage service is to ensure that:
  • the storage resources needed to meet the demand are provided,
  • they are replaced as they fail or become obsolete,
  • each object is adequately replicated to ensure its long-term viability,
  • the replicas maintain suitable geographic and organizational diversity,
  • the software is maintained to fix the inevitable vulnerabilities,
and that the software is upgraded as the computing infrastructure evolves through time. Note that these are mostly requirements on the network as a whole rather than on individual peers. The SEC's report on Initial Coin Offerings recognizes similar needs:
Investors in The DAO reasonably expected and its co-founders, and The DAO’s Curators, to provide significant managerial efforts after The DAO’s launch. The expertise of The DAO’s creators and Curators was critical in monitoring the operation of The DAO, safeguarding investor funds, and determining whether proposed contracts should be put for a vote. Investors had little choice but to rely on their expertise.

By contract and in reality, DAO Token holders relied on the significant managerial efforts provided by and its co-founders, and The DAO’s Curators, as described above.
Even in the profit-driven world of crypto-currencies, the incentive from profit doesn't always lead to concensus (see the issue of increasing the Bitcoin block size, and the DAO heist), or to the provision of resources to meet the demand (see Bitcoin's backlog of unconfirmed transactions). Since we have assumed away the profit motive, and all we have left is a vague sense of the public interest, the built-in incentives powering the necessary functions will be weak.

This lack of effective governance is a problem in the short-term world of crypto-currency speculation (see the surplus GPUs flooding the market as Ethereum miners drop out). It is a disaster in digital preservation, where the requirement is to perform continuously and correctly over a time-scale of many technology generations. Human organizations can survive much longer time-scales; 8 years ago my University celebrated its 800-th birthday. Does anybody believe we'll be using Bitcoin or Ethereum 80 years from now as it celebrates its 888-th?

We have experience in these matters. Seventeen years ago we published the first paper describing the LOCKSS peer-to-peer digital preservation system. At the software level it was, and has remained through its subsequent evolution, a truly decentralized system. All peers are equal, no peer trusts any other, peers discover others through gossip-style communication. At the management and organizational level, however, formal structures arose such as the LOCKSS Alliance, the MetaArchive and the CLOCKSS Archive to meet real-world demand for the functions above to be performed in a reliable and timely fashion.

Trying by technical means to remove the need to have viable economics and governance is doomed to fail in the medium- let alone the long-term. What is needed is a solution to the economic and governance problems. Then a technology can be designed to work in that framework. Blockchain is a technology in search of a problem to solve, being pushed by ideology into areas where the unsolved problems are not technological.
          Is Decentralized Storage Sustainable?        
There are many reasons to dislike centralized storage services. They include business risk, as we see in le petit musée des projets Google abandonnés, monoculture vulnerability and rent extraction. There is thus naturally a lot of enthusiasm for decentralized storage systems, such as MaidSafe, DAT and IPFS. In 2013 I wrote about one of their advantages in Moving vs. Copying. Among the enthusiasts is Lambert Heller. Since I posted Blockchain as the Infrastructure for Science, Heller and I have been talking past each other. Heller is talking technology; I have some problems with the technology but they aren't that important. My main problem is an economic one that applies to decentralized storage irrespective of the details of the technology.

Below the fold is an attempt to clarify my argument. It is a re-statement of part of the argument in my 2014 post Economies of Scale in Peer-to-Peer Networks, specifically in the context of decentralized storage networks.

To make my argument I use a model of decentralized storage that abstracts away the details of the technology. The goal is a network with a large number of peers each providing storage services. This network is:
  • decentralized in the sense that no single entity, or small group of entities, controls the network (the peers are independently owned and operated), and
  • sustainable, in that the peers do not lose financially by providing storage services to the network.
I argue that this network is economically unstable and will, over time, become centralized. This argument is based on work from the 80s by the economist W. Brian Arthur1.

Let us start by supposing that such a decentralized storage network has, by magic, been created:
  • It consists of a large number of peers, initially all providing the same amount of storage resource to the network.
  • Users submit data to be stored to the network, not to individual peers. The network uses erasure coding to divide the data into shards and peers store shards.
  • Each peer incurs costs to supply this resource, in the form of hardware, bandwidth, power, cooling, space and staff time.
  • The network has no central organization which could contract with the peers to supply their resource. Instead, it rewards the peers in proportion to the resource they supply by a token, such as a crypto-currency, that the peers can convert into cash to cover their costs.
  • The users of the network rent space in the network by buying tokens for cash on an exchange, setting a market price at which peers can sell their tokens for cash. This market price sets the $/TB/month rent that users must pay, and that peers receive as income. It also ensure that users do not know which peers store their data.
Although the income each peer receives per unit of storage is the same, as set by the market, their costs differ. One might be in Silicon Valley, where space, power and staff time are expensive. Another might be in China, where all these inputs are cheap. So providing resources to the network is more profitable in China than in Silicon Valley.

Suppose the demand for storage is increasing. That demand will preferentially be supplied from China, where the capital invested in adding capacity can earn a greater reward. Thus peers in China will add capacity faster than those in Silicon Valley and will enjoy not merely a lower cost base because of location, but also a lower cost base from economies of scale. This will increase the cost differential driving the peers to China, and create a feedback process.

Competition among the peers and decreasing hardware costs will drive down the  $/TB/month rent to levels that are uneconomic for Silicon Valley peers, concentrating the storage resource in China (as we see with Bitcoin miners).

Lets assume that all the peers in China share the same low cost base. But some will have responded to the increase in demand before others. They will have better economies of scale than the laggards, so they will in turn grow at the laggards' expense. Growth may be by increasing the capacity of existing peers, or adding peers controlled by the entity with the economies of scale.

The result of this process is a network in which the aggregate storage resource is overwhelmingly controlled by a small number of entities, controlling large numbers of large peers in China. These are the ones which started with a cost base advantage and moved quickly to respond to demand. The network is no longer decentralized, and will suffer from the problems of centralized storage outlined above.

This should not be a surprise. We see the same winner-take-all behavior in most technology markets. We see this behavior in the Bitcoin network.

I believe it is up to the enthusiasts to explain why this model does not apply to their favorite decentralized storage technology, and thus why it won't become centralized. Or, alternatively, why they aren't worried that their decentralized storage network isn't actually decentralized after all.

"I, Broken Pencil": An Economic Analysis of Bitcoins

More I read the essays Gary North write about Bitcoin and more I wonder if they are actually written by Peter North.

First of all, North do not understand there is a difference between Bitcoin (the payment network) and bitcoins (the units of account used by the network).

The statement "In order for Bitcoins' promise of privacy to work, the division of labor must be exclusively governed by Bitcoins. There must be no re-entry into the world of government fiat money."
Please, I could buy gold or silver coins and then reenter in the fiat money system without leaving traces, if I was inclined to self harm, but why should I do so? To experience devaluation of my purchasing power? To have my money legally owned by banks? No thanks.

This citation "The system will, without law or custom, and without enforceable property rights, autonomously evolve into a system with the same features and benefits as the present property rights order enjoys. It will do this without any intervention by the courts." I'm unable to find the actual source (only North's articles are show by Google). I hope Mr. North is not using a straw man of his own creation. It would be very sad.

The statements: "You have to have digital currency in order to buy Bitcoins." and "Bitcoins could not exist if there were not an integrated system of digital currency." are wrong.
I, like many others, have bought bitcoin in cash or sold goods and services for bitcoins.

Or I could put my bitcoins in one of many tumbler or remixers and have them mixed with other's coins and have the coins sent to some address not linked to my original coins.
Bitcoins are not anonymous, they are pseudonymous and could become anonymous only if you take the appropriate steps to make them so.
In fact, using a service like Bitpay, leave a pretty easy path to follow.
If you want to pay anonymously, cash and gold/silver coins are much more anonymous than bitcoin and are anonymous without the need of any other further step.

The statements "
You are then told that you can make purchases with Bitcoins. These will not leave a record." are false. Any and every transaction using Bitcoin is stored in the blockchain forever. If I buy bitcoins using a reputable exchange like Mt.Gox and Bitstamp I link my bitcoins to my identity (via my bank account). So the government is able to follow the money entering in the exchange from a side and the bitcoins existing the exchange from the other side. They have my name stamped over because of KYC and AML rules.
If I want to have anonymous bitcoins, I need to buy them with cash (cash is a truly anonymous form of currency) from a local seller and hope he don't keep records of the transaction.

The statements: "You have to have digital currency in order to buy Bitcoins." and "Bitcoins could not exist if there were not an integrated system of digital currency." are wrong.
I, like many others, have bought bitcoin in cash or sold goods and services for bitcoins.
The statements "
You are then told that you can make purchases with Bitcoins. These will not leave a record." are false. Any and every transaction using Bitcoin is stored in the blockchain forever.

The statement "He must convert his Bitcoins to real money. That is because he must buy real goods." is patently false:
You can buy cars, food, electronic appliances, services with bitcoin without converting them in fiat money before the purchase. What the seller do after the purchase is his problem. Some convert 100% of the bitcoins in fiat money (they just use it as a payment system like VISA or PayPal just faster and with lower fees) other keep all the bitcoins ( and many are somewhere in betweens (Gyft keep the profit generated with Bitcoin payments in bitcoins).

The statement "Bitcoins are virtual money. Problem: virtual money buys very few real goods." This contradict his previous statement that you must convert bitcoins in real money (like the US dollar?) to buy real goods.

The statement "The problem for the defender Bitcoins is this: we need a comprehensive system of prices." is beyond embarrassing. The same arguments could be done for the €. Would North support the argument Europe must convert to the USD because ,as it is, the € can not stand because it would collapse the division of labour?Or maybe the Swiss Franc or the Icelandic Krone.In the original essay North link the pencil is made from goods coming from different parts of the world like Mexico, Ceylon, Mississippi, Dutch East Indies, Persian Gulf and Brazil. At the time do they used the same currency?

The statement "Bitcoins' defenders do not openly say that there is no need for a private property system, no need for legal appeals, no need for any kind of arbitration system no need for contracts, no need for anything except algorithms." is beyond the pale. Mr. North could spend less time writing and more time reading bitcointalk forums. If any, he could, at least, link to any of these statements just to prove they exist.
Apparently Mr. North think the actual implementation of a private property system is the only way a property system can be implemented. This make the same sense as telling the only way to travel is using horses and cars supporters are saying there is no need of streets.
In fact, the Bitcoin system is first and mainly a private property registry archiving and validating every transactions.
You can have self validating/self executing contracts on the blockchain. Just write a contract in a programmatic way and it will self execute when the right conditions are fulfilled. I could have escrow with bitcoin, I could have delayed payments, I could have multi party transactions that execute only if all parties sign the transaction.
In many ways, Bitcoin reduce to the bare minimum the need to a human third party to judge and execute a contract. Nothing prevent two parties to select a third party to adjudicate some conditions to fulfil or void a contract in the contract. What Bitcoin prevent is a third party altering the contract unilaterally (just the governments are used to do).

Bitcoin system will have enforceable property rights. But the enforcement of these will not be left entirely at the will and whims of the governments branches. The bitcoins in someone address are his own and no one without the right cryptographic kay will ever be able to control them. The only way the government can control them is if they are able to take hold on the keys. The algorithms are controlled by math and physics and the laws of math and physics will not be changed by any man or group of men any time soon. 
The statement "A social framework is necessary -- a moral, intellectual, and legal framework -- to make possible the monetary systems of the world, which in turn make possible the modern division of labor. The advocates of Bitcoins do not discuss any of this." is ridiculous.If there is something advocated of Bitcoin do is to discuss this.

"Never in the history of libertarianism has there been any more utopian proposal that Bitcoins. They rest on an implicit denial of the private property system. They rest on an implicit denial of contracts and a denial of courts. They rest on an implicit denial of face-to-face resolution of disputes. They rest on an implicit denial of bargaining on a face-to-face basis. This is an implicit denial of virtually everything that exists in the free market society. The whole idea is delusional beyond anything I have ever seen."

What the Bitcoin system do is to give a programmatic contractual framework. The framework is used at the service of the humans using it, not the reverse. The framework reduce the need for courts, do not cancel it. It is used to reduce conflicts not eliminate them.

"Real money is bank money
." Yes, Mr. North the Fed. Notes are real money. How very austrian from you.

"If the advocates of crypto-currency have a case for a free market social order, then they should advocate not buying Bitcoins until such an order exists. Money develops out of a social order. They have put the cart before the horse: a new monetary system before the institutional arrangements to support it."
How much wrong statement: The advocates of bitcoin build the institution of the new social order first: it is the bitcoin protocols and the network to enforce it on the people freely joining the network and adopting the protocol. Then people joined freely (and can leave freely). They can see the advantages and the disadvantages of the network and decided the advantages are greater than the disadvantages. They joined the network and experienced these advantages and disadvantages. And until now they continue to flock to the network.

If I was the scoundrel I am, I would think Mr. North was hit in some sensitive spot of his ego by the idea some young, inexperienced, amateur economist without any reputation built a revolutionary system a lot of smart, educated and influential professors could not devise in their wildest dreams. Add to this he can not attack the character of the inventor because he is disappeared and no one know his identity.
In the end Mr. North and a large number of Bitcoin detractors are left fighting with the ghost of Satoshi Nakamoto as reality escape their grasp.

I want add I really appreciated many writings of Mr. North in the past but, as they say of any investment, past performance is not an indication of future results.

          La funzione Monetaria di Bitcoin: una confutazione        
Articolo originale The Money-ness of Bitcoins: A Rebuttal
traduzione Romanato Mirco – Revisione Giuseppe Tararà
Le citazioni sono tratte dalla traduzione italiana di Mises Daily: Thursday, April 04, 2013 by Nikolay Gertchev The Money-ness of BitCoin  di Francesco Simoncelli: La Funzione Monetaria di Bitcoin 
Leggere un pezzo equilibrato sul sito del Ludwig von Mises Institute sui Bitcoin di Nikolay Gertchev  (Mises Daily: Thursday, April 04, 2013 by Nikolay Gertchev The Money-ness of BitCoin Traduzione italiana: La Funzione Monetaria di Bitcoin a cura di Francesco Simoncelli), un economista della Commissione Europea, è un sollievo. Sebbene non condivida le conclusioni, almeno non è una di quelle irrazionali e disinformate stroncature di BitCoin che arrivano frequentemente dai “gold & silver bugs”. L’ultimo giro di mazzate sui Bitcoin arrivava da Michael Pento su CNBC. I suoi commenti erano così ridicoli che si sono attirati questa risposta da Trace Mayer - ”Why Michael Pento Should Just Keep His Mouth Shut“.
bitcoin è finito molte volte tra le notizie. Sullo sfondo di rinnovate preoccupazioni circa l'integrità della zona euro e l'imposizione di controlli sui capitali a Cipro, il prezzo di un bitcoin è triplicato nel corso dell'ultimo mese e ha raggiunto più di $141 per 1 BTC. Stiamo assistendo alla nascita spontanea di un mezzo alternativo di scambio virtuale? Questo articolo offre una risposta a questa domanda prendendo in considerazione tre aspetti dell'economia dei bitcoin: il loro processo di produzione, i loro fattori di domanda, e la loro capacità di competere con i mezzi di scambio fisici.
Mentre Nikolay afferma che Bitcoin soddisfa il Criterio di Regressione Misesiano per l’introduzione in un libero mercato di un mezzo di scambio, dice anche che Bitcoin soffre lo svantaggio di una domanda limitata e di una dipendenza dalla tecnologia. Ecco, per quel che valgono, i miei 2 BTC.

(1) Domanda Limitata
Senza la certezza di poter essere scambiati con un qualsiasi altro bene nell'economia, non si potrebbe sviluppare una domanda che li consideri denaro. E' la loro capacità di diventare e rimanere di uso comune che li pone in uno svantaggio relativo.” Certamente vero, ma uno deve ricordare che il primo BTC è stato creato solo nel gennaio del 2009. E non catturò l’attenzione dei social media e mass media prima, rispettivamente, del Febbraio e dell’Aprile 2011. Nel breve lasso di due anni, la sua capitalizzazione è cresciuta da 1 milione di US$ ad 1 miliardo di US$.
La prima volta che Bitcoin è stato usato come un mezzo di scambio è stato nel Maggio del 2010 (una pizza fu venduta per 10,000 BTC). Oggi si può comprare questo TV da 32” per 2.77 BTC. Visita BitCoinStore e sarai sorpreso da quello che puoi comprare con i tuoi Bitcoins. BitPay, il principale Bitcoin Payment Service Provider (Fornitore di Servizi di Pagamento in Bitcoin) ha processato oltre 5.2 milioni di $ in transazioni di Bitcoin per i suoi mercanti durante il mese di Marzo, facendo iscrivere ai suoi servizi oltre 1,300 nuovi mercanti solo in quel mese. E si va oltre all’elettronica e ai beni di consumo e direttamente nel cuore dei servizi al governo.
 â€œNel mese di marzo, gli strumenti di pagamento di BitPay sono stati integrati anche in E-GovLink, un sistema di fatturazione utilizzato dai governi locali, e FoxyCart, un popolare servizio di carrello della spesa SaaS ospitato nel cloud. Qualsiasi azienda o organizzazione che utilizza E-GovLink o FoxyCart adesso può aggiungere l'opzione di pagamento in Bitcoin .“
Sul fronte degli investimenti, ci sono evidenza di una domanda estremamente elevata non solo dovute all’azione dei prezzi ma anche dall’attività del più grande exchange di Bitcoin del mondo, MtGox. Date una occhiata ad alcuni numeri menzionati nel loro comunicato stampa di ieri
 â€œL'anno scorso, Mt.Gox ha visto una media di 9.000 a 10.000 nuovi account creati ogni mese. Questo numero è raddoppiato nel mese di gennaio, triplicato nel mese di febbraio, e sestuplicato in marzo. Solo in questo mese (marzo), sono stati creati oltre 57.000 nuovi conti!“
  Con questa rapida velocità di adozione, non ci vorrà molto prima che la “domanda limitata” di BitCoins diventi un non problema.

(2) Dipendenza dalla Tecnologia
Il punto chiave, tuttavia, è che i bitcoin potrebbero diventare un mezzo di scambio solo attraverso l'uso di altri beni accessori, specifici e fisici in un'economia che ha raggiunto un livello molto elevato di sviluppo tecnologico. Questo è un enorme svantaggio, per almeno due motivi. 
Nel tentativo di capire se la crescente popolarità di bitcoin rifletta l'emergere di una nuova moneta, siamo arrivati ad una distinzione fondamentale tra mezzi di scambio virtuali e materiali. Questi ultimi sono indipendenti dalla tecnologia e rappresentati da qualcosa di materiale; i primo sono incorporati nella tecnologia e non sono rappresentati da qualcosa di materiale.
L’autore sembra molto preoccupato dal fatto che questa “valuta virtuale” Bitcoin che sta emergendo sia dipendente dalla tecnologia e conclude il suo articolo con questa affermazione enfatica:
 Sul libero mercato, il denaro-merce, e presumibilmente l'oro e l'argento, hanno ancora un grande vantaggio comparativo.
Quello a cui si riferisce come “moneta basata su una commodity” è inesistente oggi.  Prima della Seconda Guerra Mondiale, gli stati nazionali emettevano monete nazionali, alcune delle quali erano agganciate ad una commodity (eg. oro) in rapporti variabili, mentre altre non lo erano. Fin dall’ Accordo di  Bretton Woods nel 1944, le valute nazionali non erano più agganciate direttamente all’ oro. Invece erano agganciate all’oro attraverso l’US$, che era direttamente agganciato all’ oro. Le nazioni che possedevano US$ potevano redimerli in oro ad un rapporto di cambio fisso. Da quanto Nixon ha sospeso la convertibilità nel 1971,  la connessione con l’oro è stata spezzata. Il dollaro e quindi tutte le altre monete nazionali in esistenza oggi non sono supportate ne redimibile in oro o in nessuna altra commodity. Supponiamo, per il gusto della discussione, che l’aggancio con l’oro non sia mai stato eliminato e tutte le valute esistenti al mondo siano indirettamente supportate dall’oro. Chiamiamo le nostre valute esistenti “valute reali” contrapposte al Bitcoin, a cui ci riferiamo come una “valuta virtuale”. L’argomento che le valute reali abbiano un vantaggio sulle valute virtuali perché “queste hanno una forma tecnologica indipendente dalla materia mentre le prime hanno una forma materiale indipendente dalla tecnologia” non ha senso oggi giorno. La “forma materiale” o la natura fisica del denaro ha importanza solo se è scambiato o trasmesso principalmente in forma fisica, come nei tempi antichi. Le valute reali del giorno d’oggi sono lontane dall’ avere una “forma materiale”. Considerate i seguenti due usi di valute reali, uno ad un livello micro e uno ad un livello macro. L’ultimo giorno di ogni mese, ricevete un salario attraverso una serie di numeri nel vostro conto presso il vostro datore di lavoro. Da li, una parte sostanziale è dedotta ed inviata al governo sotto forma di tasse; un’altra porzione viene dedotta ed inviata al fondo pensione, e la lista continua fino a che un numero sostanzialmente più piccolo appare nel computer della vostra banca. Da la, più denaro scompare automaticamente dal vostro conto attraverso addebiti automatici per pagare il mutuo della casa, le bollette, la carta di credito, etc. Mentre correte a casa per usare l’Internet per mandare un bonifico dalla banca a vostro figlio che studia dall’ altra parte del globo, dell’altro denaro viene automaticamente preso da un dispositivo nel vostro veicolo ogni volta che passate per un casello. Dove e quando una persona normale vede o usa il denaro che ha guadagnato nella sua “forma materiale”?? Muovendoci al livello macro, scopriamo che l’utilizzo della “forma tecnologica” delle valute reali è parecchi ordini di grandezza maggiore rispetto all’ uso della sua “forma materiale”. La porzione blu del grafico mostra M0, l’aggregato monetario che rappresenta le monete fisiche e le banconote, forma solo una minima percentuale di M3, che è il totale di tutta la valuta in circolazione che comprende M0 e tutte le altre rappresentazioni elettroniche del denaro. Questo grafico arriva fino al 2007. La creazione di denaro dopo la crisi del 2008 rende il rapporto attuale anche più estremo. Virtualmente tutte le migliaia di miliardi di dollari della massa monetaria globale sono scambiate e spostate in giro per il globo ”attraverso l’uso accessorio di altri beni fisici e specifici”, il che significa, elettronicamente attraverso il sistema bancario moderno.
Agganciate all’ oro o no, le valute reali esistenti, o ogni altra forma di valuta emessa in modo centralizzato (IMF’s SDR, etc) – nessuna può mai essere usata ampiamente nella sua “forma materiale”. A meno che la nostra civiltà ritorni all’ età della pietra, le nostre valute devono essere e in modo crescente avranno una “forma tecnologica”. Bitcoin è la prima e attualmente più diffusa forma di una nuova generazione di valute conosciute come cripto-valute. Bitcoin può avere o meno successo come una valuta di riferimento del futuro; ma una delle molte cripto-valute che sono in competizione (LiteCoin, NameCoin, PPCoin, etc) o qualcuno ancora da inventare certamente avrà un grande vantaggio competitivo rispetto alle valute esistenti. Tutte le forme di valuta con forma ”materiale” hanno per tutti gli usi o motivi acquisito una forma “tecnologica” o elettronica. La sola differenza è che la loro tecnologia è di molto inferiore a quella delle cripto-valute, delle quali Bitcoin è attualmente il leader.

          Precious Metals Know How to Take a Punch        

Daily Gold & Silver Market Report – 07/20/2017

As the U.S. dollar weakens and physical demand strengthens, many investors are waiting for Precious Metals to jump. The Street Real Money Reporter David Williams, Jr. says as fall season, spot prices are setting up for a positive finish to the year. Both U.S. and geopolitical events contribute to a potential surge in the commodity currencies. An interesting development has been the resurgence of the crypto-currency market. However, questions remain as to how long that will continue and if a crash is inevitable. Nonetheless, Williams says, “What is clear is that many forms of alternatives to the dollar are showing signs of strength in the marketplace.”

Gold Prices Drop Ahead of ECB Meeting

Money Control reports the European Central Bank (ECB) is “expected to lay the groundwork for an autumn policy shift when it meets” Thursday, as investors expects clues regarding the outlook for its stimulus program. ANZ research said in a note, “Investors remained cautious heading into (Thursday's) ECB meeting, where there are expectations of a more hawkish stance.” According to reporters Nithin Prasad and Arpan Varghese, “The euro held near a 14-month high against the U.S. dollar on Thursday ahead of the ECB gathering.” Gold prices will remain positive as long as U.S. dollar weakness persists, said ICBC Standard Bank Tokyo Branch Manager Yuichi Ikemizu says. Ikemizu said he doesn’t see spot Gold prices going any lower than $1,200 an ounce with people being less bearish.

At 3:46 p.m. (ET), the APMEX Precious Metals spot prices were:

  • Gold, $1,246.00 Up $1.00
  • Silver, $16.41 Down $0.01
  • Platinum, $930.00 Up $4.80

For the 134th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Dr Craig Calzell. Craig recently wrote a paper outlining the possible currency options for an independent Scotland. This is important work because an aspect of the Yes side that was much criticised during and after the 2014 referendum was the perceived lack of a strategy on what to do about currency. I say "perceived" because much of it came down to perception, not fact. We talked about why the 2014 plan may or may not have been right at the time, but wouldn't be the correct strategy for indyref 2. Would the Euro work? Scottish Pound? A crypto-currency? We also talked about what the hell a crypto-currency actually is. And of course, I asked Craig why he supports Independence for Scotland. Hope you enjoy. LINKS

          Payment Processors, Patents and a Dollop of Healthy Paranoia        


Reggie Middleton discussion UltraCoin at the 2014 FinTech conference at Dechert LLP.

Coindesk asks "Do Patent Filings from eBay and Western Union Pose a Threat to Bitcoin?" I feel  the question is in and of itself missing the point. To explain this fully, I have to share a little bit about myself, particularly my weaknesses. I'm the type of person who is very knowledgeable about his strengths and his weaknesses, but sometimes I don't see my strength for what it is, and that is tantamount to a weakness in a highly competitive environment.

Case in point, in discussing whether or not competing patents have been filed for smart contract transacion processes by those who seek to be in my space with my contract engineer (a very skilled software architect and IP attorney), I displayed what I considered a healthy level of paranoid concern. I found it hard to believe that no one bothered to patent the most innovative, disruptive and groundbreaking aspect of this new crop of digital currencies - the ability to program them. As those who follow me know, I've spent a lot of resources developing, designing, refining and patenting advanced smart contracts (see How Reggie Middleton's Start-up Patented The Future of Global Finance!). I actually found it highly unlikely that no one had come up with this idea before me. Matt (my contracts engineer) said, "You know, it actually takes an uncanny amount of vision to have seen the scope of this stuff and act upon it, not to mention to have done so 6 months ago. Not many people are like you." Right then and there, it hit me. People really do not see things the way I do! 

Most know me from my prescient calls in banking, finance, real estate and tech (see Who is Reggie Middleton?). I've demonstrated a knack for seeing future trends and determining when things (such as valuations and opportunities) are out of whack. With that being said, the big media interest in Bitcoin combined with the increasing VC interest in Bitcoin companies (reference BitPay Gets $30 Million in Venture Capital Funding) is a very good thing for the industry, but also illustrates shortsigtedness in both the investment community and many practitioners.

The problem with the processors...

When bitcoin is as easy as PayPal to use then it will be on the path to mass adoption, but to assume that’s the most lucrative path to take in bitcoin company private equity investment begs the wrong question. Here’s the strategic landscape as I see it.

Bitcoin is very inexpensive to use as a transfer agent. A transaction may be safely sent without fees if these conditions are met (this is excerpted directly from the Bitcoin Wiki, verbatum):

  1. It is smaller than 1,000 bytes.
  2. All outputs are 0.01 BTC or larger.
  3. Its priority is large enough

Otherwise, the reference implementation will round up the transaction size to the next thousand bytes and add a fee of 0.1 mBTC (0.0001 BTC) per thousand bytes. Note that a typical transaction is 500 bytes, so the typical transaction fee for low-priority transactions is 0.1 mBTC (0.0001 BTC), regardless of the number of bitcoins sent.

Bitcoin as of 5/18/2014 is $444.74m, thus the fee for this transaction is roughly 4 cents, if not outright free. If a processor is transferring $10,000 on behalf of a customer, whether at one time or 100 times throughout the course of a month, the processor’s fee cost would range from $0 to $4, while the processor would likely charge (as of the date of this writing, $0 to $100). The traditional processors such a Visa or Paypal  would charge hundreds (as in up to 50x more!) for the same deal!

That 25x markup on the high end is significant (even for the Bitcoin companies), and ripe for disintermediation itself (that's right, the disintermediaing agents are poised for disintermediaion). Particularly once the UX of Bitcoin evolves, as email and web browsing did, and users realize how easy and cheap it is to jump onto the blockchain and do this stuff themselves.

Even assuming users don’t follow the historical model of those that left proprietary walled gardens (think AOL) and jumped directly into the open World Wide Web themselves, there are no material barriers to entry to enter into the processing business other than potentially a money transmitter license. The only material barrier, hence the business opportunity, is that Bitcoin is cumbersome to use. As the UI/UX polish increases and the amount of competitors in the space increase, the lower the prices charged - hence the margins - will be.

With such low barriers to entry and potentially humongous markups to exploit, what do you think happens next? The wild, untamed hordes of competitors swoop down upon the masses, and we have a concerted race to zero, and likely negative margin as competitors attempt to make processing a loss leader to draw users into the folds of richer, higher margin services!!!

 The race to marginal zero, then negative, does not make a strong business plan. So, what do these companies such as BitPay, Coinbase, etc. do once that point is reached (rather quickly)? They look to value added (high margin) services on top of their low margin, utility-like payment infrastructures.

Enter smart contracts and the true use of programmability in the crypto-currencies. The easiest and the likely first implementation of such will be multi-sig operations which allow multiple parties to share funds without having to worry about trusting and single party in a transaction. Our ZeroTrust Letters of Credit (patent pending) is just such a product. It allows for multiple parties to tranfer payment for simple and complex transactions contingent upon the mutual agreed upon successful execution of said transactions. This is done without the parties having to:

  1. Know each other
  2. Trust each other
  3. Have any form of proximity to each other;

and can be done using micropayments all the way up to multi-million dollar macro payments. The barriers to this business are much higher. For one, it takes more than just programming code. You have to be able to congeal the legal logic of the conventional law in equity contract into code. You have to be able to congeal the business logic into code, and you have to be able to implement it into the blockchain or whatever other underlying transmission mechanism you choose to utilize.

Once the race to negative zero is in full swing, a few of the wiser companies will wake-up and say "Hey, there has to be a better way, and we think we found it!". It is at that point Reggie Middleton's UltraCoin products and assets will shine. It is not hard to foresee that the entrenched companies (Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Western Union) may enter a bidding war with the new comers armed with material VC warchests (much more than we're seeing with $30 million investments of today - all over the guys who had the foresight to see the next evolutionary step in plain vanilla payments - smart transactions and self-executing digital contracts and transactions.

Oh, one last thing... Blockchain platforms are software platforms. They run into errors and growing pains (see the bitcoin article claran linked), but like all software can be upgraded. The networks can be sped up, increase security measures, or split off to grow in different directions to tackle specific problems. Remember, open source chains are preferable in many cases because they remove 3rd party trust. Also, at least 2/3rds of the 100s of crypto-currencies currently on offer are going to go away...unless they perform value that others do not. Most importantly, keep an open mind. As the old must give way to the new, so must our thinking on how problems are solved.

          Pia Waugh: RegTech – a primer for the uninitiated        

Whilst working at AUSTRAC I wrote a brief about RegTech which was quite helpful. I was given permission to blog the generically useful parts of it for general consumption :) Thanks Leanne!

Overview – This brief is the most important thing you will read in planning transformation! Government can’t regulate in the way we have traditionally done. Traditional approaches are too small, too slow and too ineffective. We need to explore new ways to regulate and achieve the goal of a stronger financial sector resistance to abuse that leverages data, automation, machine learning, technology and collaboration. We are here to help!

The key here is to put technology at the heart of the business strategy, rather than as simply an implementation mechanism. By embracing technology thinking, which means getting geeks into the strategy and policy rooms, we can build the foundation of a modern, responsive, agile, proactive and interactive regulator that can properly scale.

“The automation of compliance with RegTech has the potential to overcome individual foibles and human error in a way that provides the quantum leap in culture and compliance that our regulators, customers, policy makers and the community are increasingly demanding… The Holy Grail is when we start to actually write regulation and legislation in code. Imagine the productivity gains and compliance savings of instantaneous certified compliance… We are now in one of the most exciting phases in the development of FinTech since the inception of e-banking.” — Treasurer Morrison, FinTech Australia Summit, Nov 2016

On the back of the FinTech boom, there is a growth in companies focused on “RegTech” solutions and services to merge technology and regulation/compliance needs for a more 21st century approach to the problem space. It is seen as a logical next step to the FinTech boom, given the high costs and complexity of regulation in the financial sector, but the implications for the broader regulatory sector are significant. The term only started being widely used in 2015. Other governments have started exploring this space, with the UK Government investing significantly.

Core themes of RegTech can be summarised as: data; automation; security; disruption; and enabling collaboration. There is also an overall drive towards everything being closer to real-time, with new data or information informing models, responses and risk in an ongoing self-adjusting fashion.

  • Data driven regulation – better monitoring, better use of available big and small data holdings to inform modelling and analysis (rather than always asking a human to give new information), assessment on the fly, shared data and modelling, trends and forecasting, data analytics for forward looking projections rather than just retrospective analysis, data driven risk and adaptive modelling, programmatic delivery of regulations (regulation as a platform).
  • Automation – reporting, compliance, risk modelling of transactions to determine what should be reported as “suspicious”, system to system registration and escalation, use of machine learning and AI, a more blended approach to work combining humans and machines.
  • Security – biometrics, customer checks, new approaches to KYC, digital identification and assurance, sharing of identity information for greater validation and integrity checking.
  • Disruptive technologies – blockchain, cloud, machine learning, APIs, cryptography, augmented reality and crypto-currencies just to start!
  • Enabling collaboration – for-profit regulation activities, regulation/compliance services and products built on the back of government rules/systems/data, access to distributed ledgers, distributed risk models and shared data/systems, broader private sector innovation on the back of regulator open data and systems.

          The dawn of trustworthy computing        
When we currently use a smart phone or a laptop on a cell network or the Internet, the other end of these interactions typically run on other solo computers, such as web servers. Practically all of these machines have architectures that were designed to be controlled by a single person or a hierarchy of people who know and trust each other. From the point of view of a remote web or app user, these architectures are based on full trust in an unknown "root" administrator, who can control everything that happens on the server: they can read, alter, delete, or block any data on that computer at will.  Even data sent encrypted over a network is eventually unencrypted and ends up on a computer controlled in this total way. With current web services we are fully trusting, in other words we are fully vulnerable to, the computer, or more specifically the people who have access to that computer, both insiders and hackers, to faithfully execute our orders, secure our payments, and so on. If somebody on the other end wants to ignore or falsify what you've instructed the web server to do, no strong security is stopping them, only fallible and expensive human institutions which often stop at national borders.

The high vulnerability we have to web servers stands in sharp contrast to traditional commercial protocols, such as ticket-selling at a movie theater, that distribute a transaction so that no employee can steal money or resources undetected. There is no "root administrator" at a movie theater who can pocket your cash undetected.  Because, unlike a web server, these traditional protocols, called financial controls, can securely handle cash, you didn't have to fill out a form  to see a movie, shop for groceries, or conduct most other kinds of every-day commerce. You just plunked down some coin and took your stuff or your seat. Imperfect and slow as these processes often are (or were), these analog or paper-based institutions often provided security, financial control, and/or verifiability of fiduciary transactions in many ways far superior to what is possible on web servers, at much less hassle and privacy loss to customers. On the Internet, instead of securely and reliably handing over cash and getting our goods or services, or at least a ticket, we have to fill out forms and make ourselves vulnerable to identity theft in order to participate in e-commerce, and it often is very difficult to prohibitive to conduct many kinds of commerce, even purely online kinds, across borders and other trust boundaries. Today's computers are not very trustworthy, but they are so astronomically faster than humans at so many important tasks that we use them heavily anyway. We reap the tremendous benefits of computers and public networks at large costs of identity fraud and other increasingly disastrous attacks.

Recently developed and developing technology, often called "the block chain", is starting to change this. A block chain computer is a virtual computer, a computer in the cloud, shared across many traditional computers and protected by cryptography and consensus technology. A Turing-complete block chain with large state gives us this shared computer. Earlier efforts included state-machine replication (see list of papers linked below).  QuixCoin is a recent and Ethereum is a current project that has implemented such a scheme. These block chain computers will allow us to put the most crucial parts of our online protocols on a far more reliable and secure footing, and make possible fiduciary interactions that we previously dared not do on a global network 

Much as pocket calculators pioneered an early era of limited personal computing before the dawn of the general-purpose personal computer, Bitcoin has pioneered the field of trustworthy computing with a partial block chain computer. Bitcoin has implemented a currency in which someone in Zimbabwe can pay somebody in Albania without any dependence on local institutions, and can do a number of other interesting trust-minimized operations, including multiple signature authority. But the limits of Bitcoin's language and its tiny memory mean it can't be used for most other fiduciary applications, the most obvious example being risk pools that share collateral across a pool of financial instruments.

A block-chain computer, in sharp contrast to a web server, is shared across many such traditional computers controlled by dozens to thousands of people. By its very design each computer checks each other's work, and thus a block chain computer reliably and securely executes our instructions up to the security limits of block chain technology, which is known formally as anonymous and probabilistic Byzantine consensus (sometimes also called Nakamoto  consensus).  The most famous security limit is the much-discussed "51% attack".  We won't discuss this limit the underlying technology further here, other than saying that the oft-used word "trustless" is exaggerated shorthand for the more accurate mouthful "trust-minimized", which I will use here.  "Trust" used in this context means the need to trust remote strangers, and thus be vulnerable to them. 

Trust-minimized code means you can trust the code without trusting the owners of any particular remote computer. A smart phone user in Albania can use the block chain to interact with a computer controlled by somebody in Zimbabwe, and they don't have to know or trust each other in any way, nor do they need to depend on the institutions of either's countries, for the underlying block chain computer to run its code securely and reliably. Regardless of where any of the computers or their owners are, the block chain computer they share will execute as reliably and securely as consensus technology allows, up to the aforementioned limits. This is an extremely high level of reliability, and a very high level of security, compared to web server technology. 

Instead of the cashier and ticket-ripper of the movie theater, the block chain consists of thousands of computers that can process digital tickets, money, and many other fiduciary objects in digital form.  Think of thousands of robots wearing green eye shades, all checking each other's accounting. Individually the robots (or their owners) are not very trustworthy, but collectively, coordinated by mathematics, they produce results of high reliability and security.

Often block chain proponents talk about the "decentralized" block chain versus the "centralized" web or centralized institutions. It's actually the protocol (Nakamoto consensus, which is highly distributed) combined with strong cryptography, rather than just decentralization per se, that is the source of the far higher reliability and and much lower vulnerability of block chains. The cryptography provides an unforgeable chain of evidence for all transactions and other data uploaded to the block chain. Many other decentralized or peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies do not provide anything close to the security and reliability provided by a block chain protected by full Byzantine or Nakamoto consensus and cryptographic hash chains, but deceptively style themselves as block chains or cryptocurrency.

A big drawback is that our online and distributed block chain computer is much slower and more costly than a web server: by one very rough estimate, about 10,000 times slower and more costly, or about the same as it cost to run a program on a normal computer in 1985. For this reason, we only run on the block chain that portion of an application that needs to be the most reliable and secure: what I call fiduciary code. Since the costs of human ("wet") problems caused by the unreliability and insecurity of web servers running fiduciary code are often far higher than the extra hardware needed to run block chain code, when web server reliability and security falls short, as it often does for fiduciary computations such as payments and financial contracts, it will often make more sense  to run that code on the block chain than to run it less reliably and securely on a web server. Even better, the block chain makes possible new fiduciary-intensive applications, such as posting raw money itself to the Internet, securely and reliably accessible anywhere on the globe -  apps that we would never dare do with a web server.

What kinds of fiduciary code can we run?  We are still thinking up new applications and the categories will be in flux, but a very productive approach is to think of fiduciary applications by analogy to traditional legal code that governs traditional fiduciary institutions. Fiduciary code will often execute some of the functions traditionally thought of as the role of commercial law or security, but with software that securely and reliably spans the global regardless of traditional jurisdiction. Thus:

* Property titles (registered assets), where the on-chain registry is either the legally official registry for off-chain assets or controls on-chain ones, thus providing reliable and secure custody of them. One can think of a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin as property titles (or at least custody enforced by the block chain consensus protocol) to bits recognized as being a fixed portion of a currency, or as controlling unforgeably costly bits, or both. Block chains could also control hardware which controls the function of and access to physical property.

* Smart contracts: here users (typically two of them) agree via user interface to execute block chain code, which may include transfer of money and other chain-titled assets at various times or under various conditions, transfer and verification of other kinds of information, and other combinations of wet or traditional (off-chain) and dry (on-chain) performance. A block chain can hold cryptocurrency as collateral (like an escrow) which incentivizes off-chain performance that can be verified on-chain, by the parties or by third parties. A full block chain computer can pool on-chain assets into a single chain-controlled risk pool spread among many similar financial contracts, reducing the amount of collateral that needs to be stored on-chain while minimizing the need for off-chain collateral calls. The block chain can also make the search, negotiation, and verification phases of contracting more reliable and secure. With on-chain smart contracts we will be able to buy and sell many online services and financial instruments by button and slider instead of by laboriously filling out forms that disclose our private information.

* On-chain treasuries, trusts, and similar, where money lives on the block chain and is controlled by multiple signature ("multisig") authority.  Putting a treasury with signature authority on a block chain computer is low-hanging fruit, but is often tied to more speculative efforts under the label "distributed autonomous organization (DAO)", which may include voting shares and other mechanisms to control the treasury like a corporation or other kind of of organization.

I hope to discuss these block chain applications, especially smart contracts, in future posts. While there is much futurism in many block chain discussions, including many trying to solve problems that aren't actually solved by the block chain, I will generally stick to low-hanging fruit that could be usefully implemented on Quixcoin, Ethereum, or similar technology in the near future, often interfacing to still necessary parts of traditional protocols and institutions rather than trying to reinvent and replace them in whole.

Those who have been involved in it know it well enough but there is very little said either in the popular press or in the academic journals about the "Daddy's girl" phenomenon.  So I think I need to give a brief outline of it.

What happens is that an unknown but probably substantial proportion of fathers absolutely adore their little daughters.  And they express that in every way, including spoiling the little girl rotten.  And the little girl laps it up of course.  The two become bound in a bond of mutual love.  It is in my mind the most beautiful human relationship there is.

So to take an example:  The father comes home from work and as soon as he steps in the door the little girl runs to him with open arms.  He snatches her up, gives her a close cuddle and then carries her further into the house where a mother sees two faces with big smiles on them.  Since she loves those two persons she too smiles with pleassure.  It is a happy homecoming.

I am sure that Leftists will deplore that example as "heteronormative", or whatever their latest neologistic jargon is, but they are the losers if they have never been part of that. It happens.

I also see fathers and little daughters coming into my favorite coffee shop.  The daughter will cling to the father as both of them order and will then wind herself around the proud and happy dad when they sit down.  You have to see it.

Having been part of such a relationship gives the girl confidence in her desirability and that is usually a long-term effect. It permanently gives the girl self-confidence and repose for all the rest of her life. And even after she has married and herself become a mother, she will at some times of stress go home to see "Dad".  And when she sees his eyes light up as she enters the room, calm and reassurance will come over her.  It may not solve her problems but gives her strength to bear them.

I was once talking to a mother who said that when her daughter's father came home, there was no-one else in the room for the girl but her father.  She just ran to him on sight.  I was concerned that the mother might be a bit put out by that so I said to her that the girl was lucky as that "Daddy's girl" relationship would give her strength and confidence for the rest of her life.  The mother replied serenely:  "Yes. I know.  I was one too".

To my regret, I never had a daughter but I was very close to a beautiful step-daughter so I have some personal feeling for what that is all about.

Where does the mother fit in?  Some may ask.  I am afraid that it does make the mother the usual disciplinarian but the father can be a backup.  If he told his little daughter that something "would make Daddy sad", that would be powerful.

So that brings us to the Trumps.  To anyone aware of the phenomenon, Donald and Ivanka have an outstandingly strong "Daddy's girl" relationship.  They dote on one another and wherever Donald is, Ivanka is usually no more than yards away, if that.  They are as close to inseparable as they can reasonably be.

For me the picture below encapsulates best the relationship between the two. They were (of course) together at the big G20 meeting but the personal was not for a moment forgotten.  A comforting hand is on Ivanka's shoulder saying "I am here".  And she looks on with a relaxed smile at what is before her. (And what WAS the Japanese Prime Minister thinking?)

I think that loving relationship is thoroughly admirable And tells you much about Donald Trump.  Had Obama had such a relationship, he would have been praised to the high heavens for it.  But with Donald Trump it is totally ignored.  I hope I am not the last to congratulate Donald on his outstandingly loving relationship with his daughter.

There has of course been much foul speculation about Ivanka and Donald as seen in the picture below when she was 15 years old.  But it is just the girl being loving towards her Dad.  Close physical contact is normal in that context.

There were events in my relationship with my stepdaughter that would have looked most alarming to an outsider looking in but everything was in fact completely innocent and known to be such by all the family.

The happy, poised and self-confident lady we see in Ivanka today is clearly NOT the victim of sexual abuse.

And I think the picture below shows how good they are for one-another.  She is happy and he is relaxed as they walk along.  It's a beautiful relationship.


Bitcoins as a defense against socialism

When I first looked at Bitcoin, I thought it was a badly constructed Millennial scam. Its vaunted “blockchain” had clear design problems, as Kevin Dowd and I pointed out in a Cato Institute paper. I now realize that this was a failure of imagination. I should have seen Bitcoin for what it was: the first flawed attempt to regain our freedom, as governments worldwide use software and thuggery to eliminate cash and Swiss bank accounts. The global government Godzilla will not stop its predations; we are so interconnected that votes for Brexit or Donald Trump merely slow it somewhat. But a crypto-currency with true anonymity – that at last will liberate us from its clutches.

Thirty years ago, we had several means of making transactions anonymously, without governments knowing about therm. For small sums, cash was almost completely anonymous, although numbered bills always gave police departments the chance to trace transactions in large criminal cases. For larger amounts, there were a wide range of banking jurisdictions offering anonymity and complete respectability to those seeking a safe bolt-hole for their cash. In the 1980s, I worked for an Austrian bank whose proud boast was that they would verify only your nationality, not your name, so that if you registered yourself as Mickey Mouse, they would greet you each time you came into the branch with elegant Austrian formality: Grüss Gott, Dr. Maus!

This was no doubt convenient for Third World dictators, terrorists and the international Mafia, but it is also essential for ordinary citizens, for one very good reason: governments cannot be trusted. They always seek to expand their control and income, and they will generally give way to temptation if it is presented to them, even fleetingly. The extreme example, of course, is that of the Jewish inhabitants of inter-war Germany who had the foresight to hold a Swiss bank account; if they were able to escape when the Nazis came to power, as many were, their Swiss bank accounts were essential to being able to re-start their lives in a safe country.

Yes, those unfortunates who did not manage to escape and did not tell their non-German families about the Swiss bank account provided an unexpected bonus for the Swiss banks, but contrary to public hysteria when this was revealed; this did not make the Swiss banks collaborators with the Nazis. It made them diligent service providers whose diligence could not solve all their clients’ problems, just the financial ones. But against governments less insane than the Third Reich, financial defenses are often the ones you need most.

To those who expostulate that we should surely trust democratic governments not to behave like Nazi Germany, I would agree wholeheartedly in terms of pogroms, Kristallnachts and the like, but not on financial matters. I give you the example of Britain, an admirably democratic country that twice, in 1815 and 1945, found itself financially exhausted at the end of major wars with government debt around 250% of GDP. The first time, the government cut spending by 69% and returned within six years to the Gold Standard, with government bonds through a quirk in their design providing savers with a massive capital gains bonanza – the result being a century of peace and prosperity.

The second time, the British government controlled interest rates, set the top rate of tax above 90%, and inflated the currency until it was worth a tenth of its pre-war value – the result being relative impoverishment all round and absolute impoverishment for those savers foolish enough to pay their taxes and attempt to live on the returns from their savings. Only those with secret Swiss bank accounts, and money kept in international equities, gold and Swiss Franc deposits, were exempt from the British government’s depredations in 1945-79.

The central flaw in democracy is that there is very little to stop 51% of the population oppressing the other 49%, and when it comes to finance and taxation, the poor will almost always be tempted from time to time to oppress not just the rich but the middle class. Britain elected Clement Attlee and Harold Wilson after World War II, both admirable men, but the result was middle class impoverishment and the loss of the Empire, thrown away to fund the National Health Service. Today, Britain is more than capable of electing Jeremy Corbyn.

The United States elected Barack Obama, who no doubt is even now skulking in his magnificent Georgetown house growling “Next time, no more Mr. Nice Guy” – and could easily elect the likes of Bernie Sanders or worse. Indeed, even in the 1950s, with the universally admired Dwight Eisenhower as President, the top rate of U.S. income tax remained at 91% throughout the decade, albeit only on extremely high incomes. The John Birch Society, madmen though they were, had a point when they accused Ike of being a Communist agent; in terms of tax policy, he effectively was.

There are two reasons for an ordinary middle-class person to need both cash and the opportunity to open a Swiss bank account. First, governments can always turn nasty, either generally or against you personally, for example through the disgraceful U.S. Civil Asset Forfeiture process. Second, the existence of cash and Swiss Bank accounts is a useful albeit not completely effective deterrent against governments getting too ambitious in their “tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect” mania. Conversely, the lack of such mechanisms puts temptation in government’s way, just begging it to impose tyranny.

By a series of international treaties, the U.S. and EU governments have now effectively eliminated the usefulness of Swiss banks and their Austrian cousins. With the tax authorities being given details of their citizens’ Swiss bank accounts, those accounts are no longer a reliable defense against government extortion. For the Russian Mafia, there are still some numbered bank account havens available, but they are much less reliable than Switzerland, so you may need your trusty henchman Igor to blow up the bank’s head office if they try any funny business. For the rest of us, sadly lacking an Igor, the avenue has been closed.

As for cash, the authorities are now trying to abolish that, ostensibly to facilitate their crazed negative-interest-rate policies. Andy Haldane, of the Bank of England, first proposed this monstrous idea, which has now been supported by the apparently sensible Kenneth Rogoff, whose “The curse of cash” sent frissons of pleasure down the spines of Keynesian central bankers worldwide. In India, which experimented with removing cash from the system last autumn, the use of Bitcoin has skyrocketed. (Although the Bitcoin blockchain is not completely secure, presumably its Indian users think cracking it for the gigantic Indian population of Bitcoin users is at least beyond the capabilities of the permit raj.)

Bitcoin is imperfect, just as the 1885 Benz, with its top speed of 3 miles per hour, was not the perfected automobile. But improvements are coming all the time, and with massive customer usage, the need for further improvements is all the time becoming more apparent – just as the manufacturers of the 1910 Gräf und Stift learned from the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand that they needed to improve their reverse gear mechanism. Soon we will have a crypto-currency that is completely impervious to the efforts of the NSA. GCHQ, the IRS and all the other government agencies who wish to view our financial transactions.

The ideal crypto-currency would combine complete anonymity with a gold link, like the late lamented E-gold, disgracefully shut down by the U.S. government. Just as anonymity enables ordinary people to escape the fiscal follies of evil and incompetent governments, so gold, which unlike crypto-currencies provides a secure non-fiat store of value, enables ordinary people to escape governments’ monetary follies, so overwhelming in recent years. A crypto-currency that combined complete anonymity with a firm and unbreakable link to gold would provide the ultimate solution to those wishing to live in financial freedom.

A fully anonymous and secure crypto-currency will be some help to terrorists, but only to the extent they have billionaires wishing to finance them. It will be only a modest help to Russian and other mafias, who have other means of keeping their financial transactions a secret from the world’s authorities. However, it will be a massive protection for the world’s ordinary citizens, even those who are of only modest means, as they will be able to store and transfer wealth in a form that is undetectable by the world’s authorities.

Poor people living under oppressive dictatorships, such as in Venezuela, will be able to provide themselves with food and maybe a bolt-hole outside their oppressive country, just as did the luckier German Jews in the 1930s. Rich people whose wealth is attacked by Socialist governments will be able to spirit it away where it cannot be found. But above all, ordinary middle-class people of moderate means will sleep in their beds, knowing that taxes on them will not be arbitrarily increased, nor property arbitrarily seized, nor wealth eroded by inflation and government overspending, because if any such thing threatens, they have a crypto-currency bolt-hole available, even if in normal times they never bother to use it.

For the world’s governments and central bankers, mass usage of crypto-currencies would be an existential threat. The withdrawal of wealth into crypto-currencies from other stores of value, such as stocks, bonds and real estate, would cause a massive market crash (such a crash may be inevitable, given the last decade’s foolishness, but this would very much worsen it.) For the world’s central bankers, there would only be one solution: forswear, now and forever, their evil attempts to abolish cash and, to make that foreswearing credible, push interest rates far above zero, to a rate well above the rate of inflation, and pledge to keep them there.

That would enable the economy to function normally again. It would cause a mass liquidation of all the foolish investments made in the last decade, but, combined with de-regulation, it would allow productivity growth to return to its historic robust levels, and thereby begin the blessed process of making us all richer again, as we had become used to since the Industrial Revolution.

Most important, if the world invests in untraceable crypto-currencies, even a global government that attempted to seize the resources of its citizens would find itself unable to do so. And that, above all, would become our principal guarantee against an impoverished and servile future.

Levin on Gov’t-Run Health Care: If Gov’t Ran Food Production, ‘We’d All Starve to Death’

On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Monday, host Mark Levin compared government-run health care with government-run food production, saying that if the government controlled food production, “we’d all starve to death.”

“Trust me, if the government controlled food production in this country, we’d all starve to death,” said Mark Levin. “If the Department of Housing and Urban Development was truly in charge of housing in your neighborhood and construction costs and everything else, we’d all be homeless. We’d all be homeless. Why would we take one of the most complex areas of life, and that is health care, which is really and truly a personal decision, and surrender it to the federal government?”

Below is a transcript of Levin’s comments from his show on Monday, July 10:

“Trust me, if the government controlled food production in this country, we’d all starve to death. If the Department of Housing and Urban Development was truly in charge of housing in your neighborhood and construction costs and everything else, we’d all be homeless. We’d all be homeless.

“Why would we take one of the most complex areas of life, and that is health care, which is really and truly a personal decision, and surrender it to the federal government or have it seized from us, and then make all these excuses: why it’s great, and people with pre-existing conditions?

“Ladies and gentlemen, if the only issue was people with pre-existing conditions and poor people, why do we have to destroy the rest of the health care market? They use these as excuses, as lies -- that people can’t get health care with pre-existing conditions.

“Number one: If you’re healthy and you don’t have insurance, what the hell is wrong with you? Then if you get sick, everybody else has to pay for it? Well, that’s why they have group insurance. We cannot set up a rational system aimed at the lowest common denominator. We just can’t. It won’t work.

“So, what’s necessary? Competition, choice, freedom, individual responsibility, individual decisions: that’s the only way we’re going to get the cost down. That’s the only way you’ll be able to buy a policy that you want. It’s the only way you’re going to see the doctors you want to see. There’s no other way. And why we resist it, I don’t know.

“Was the Industrial Revolution really so horrible? That we have clean water? That you can flick a switch and get electricity? That you can drive an automobile? Was it really that horrible that we can’t apply it to health care? These aren’t theoretical matters. This is reality. There’s a system that works and a system that doesn’t.

“And it seems to me that the progressives have won the battle of the minds. It just -- They just have. Just incredible.”



After minimum wage hikes and ammunition taxes, the lesson is don’t be like Seattle

On June 2, 2014 Seattle’s city council approved a raise in the minimum wage to a highest in the nation $15 an hour. Not one member of the council voted against it. Like most liberal progressives, the Seattle city council believed they could regulate prosperity. The law did not have the intended consequences.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), a private, non-profit, non-partisan organization conducting economic research, published a paper, on June 26, about the impact of the increase in the minimum wage on Seattle. The working paper is called “Minimum Wage Increases, Wages, and Low-Wage Employment: Evidence from Seattle.”, and was put together by a team from the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy and Governance of the University of Washington.

The report analyzes of data from the second quarter of 2014, right before the law was passed, and the second quarter of 2016. The data shows a reduction of 39 percent in jobs that pay less than $13, as to be expected. However, the data also showed a decline in jobs, 4,528, that pay under $19. This is where the jobs were the loss in jobs under $13 was supposed to go.

The bad news didn’t stop there. Over the same two-year period, the data showed a significant reduction in the amount of hours worked. People making under $13 showed a decline of 5.8 million hours in reduction, while people making under $19 lost 1.7 million hours of work. Once again, there was supposed to be a decrease in hours of people making less than $13 with an increase in people making less than $19. Just as the number of jobs decreased, the hours worked by those that held onto their jobs decreased.

Overall, this was a disaster for the working class in Seattle. Yes, people got raises, but thousands lost their jobs, and those that could keep their jobs, saw their hours decreased. For someone working for an hourly wage, it’s simple math, work more hours, make more money. It is estimated the race to make $15 the minimum wage in Seattle cost low-wage earners an average of $1,500 per year. The increase in pay, did not make up for the reduction in hours. I don’t remember “work less, get paid less” being a slogan of the $15 movement.

The federal government should use the Seattle model as a warning. According to the U.S. Census data there are approximately 84 million jobs that make under $40,000. If Seattle’s experience is any indicator of how a national minimum wage hike up to $13 an hour would work out, the cost could be a loss of 1.2 million jobs making less than $40,000 a year, without being moved to a higher wage.

In another winner from the Seattle City Council, a “violence” tax went into effect on January 1, 2016. The measure placed a $25 tax on firearms sold in the city, and up to 5 cents per round. The city tried to hide the attempted denial of Second Amendment rights, by saying the tax would be a revenue raiser with the proceeds going towards violence research. It was expected to raise between $300,000 and $500,000 per year. Let’s just say, it didn’t quite work out the way they planned.

The measure failed spectacularly in two ways. First the measure failed to raise the expected funds. Seattle has yet to release how much was raised last year, probably because it is ashamed to mention the number. What we do know, is that it is less than $200,000. That is at least 33 percent less than the minimum expected revenue. And what revenue has been collected, has not been spent on the promised research. There is a lawsuit challenging the tax, and the city will not spend the money until the suit is resolved. The city went forward with the research spending and spent $275,000 on the research. So, the “violence tax” has so far cost taxpayer over a quarter of a million dollars, and if the lawsuit goes against the city, they will never see the money.

What about the violence the tax was supposed to mitigate? Once again, Seattle failed miserably. Comparing the first five months before the tax was initiated with the first five months of this year, you get startling statistics. Rapes have gone up by 56 percent. Aggravated assault has gone up by 18 percent. Homicide and robbery have stayed the same. The Seattle violence tax did nothing to discourage violence. Will they ever learn?

Two laws passed had the exact opposite affect the laws intended. When it comes to the progressive left, no matter how much evidence presented of a failed policy, nothing changes.

Seattle now stands as a message to other cities across the U.S. The city enacted laws that tax citizens who want to defend themselves, or ended up getting them fired all together. Don’t be like Seattle.



The Level of Evil That Existed at Auschwitz Under Hitler Exists Today

By Charlie Daniels, country music star

Congressman Clay Higgins at Auschwitz. (YouTube Screenshot)
Recently Congressman Clay Higgins visited Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp where untold thousands of Jews were gassed to death, their bodies burned in furnaces and their ashes disposed of like garbage.

Congressman Higgins has come under heavy fire for videoing and narrating his visit, and in graphic language explaining the horrific process, step by step, location by location as the Jews were first herded into the mass execution chambers and moved to the furnaces where their bodies were disposed of.

I remember, in the waning days of the Second World War as the Allied Forces liberated the concentration camps and the newsreels and magazine articles exposed the gas chambers and furnaces and captured film of bulldozers pushing the skeletal bodies of Jews who had been starved and worked to death into mass graves.

This happened. It is undeniably documented, and every man, woman, and child in the free world should know that it happened. They must understand just how far prejudice and rabid hatred can push evil men and the lengths they are willing to go to achieve their dark ambitions.

They need to realize that, given the chance, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and any number of

radical Islamic groups or governments would gladly repeat the same or worse.

Hitler is not an anomaly or a prototype. He is just one of the monsters who visited demonic evil on mankind, along with Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot and now the demented Islamists who take great joy in hacking off the heads of infidels, throwing gays off the rooftops of tall buildings, burning and drowning helpless people in steel cages, and crucifying their enemies on crosses.

Is this any less evil than what the Nazis did?

Should the world not be aware that this level of evil exists, past and present? Should not the ovens and gas chambers where six million Jews were mercilessly murdered be exposed to the light of day?

Should not the atrocities of Hitler, Stalin, ISIS and all the rest of the monsters responsible for the murder of millions of human beings and the methods they used to accomplish it be made public knowledge, to be reviled and abhorred and prevented from ever happening again.

I have visited Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Israel, and it was a heartbreaking experience.

As you walk through the exhibits, see the actual box cars where Jews were herded like cattle and transported to their final destination, the graphic photographs, the Children’s Memorial and Hall of Remembrance where the pictures of beautiful Jewish children who died at the hands of the Nazis, their names read aloud one after the other, you can’t help but wonder, “Why didn’t somebody stop this?”

So, Congressman Clay Higgins, I care not what criticism others level at you, those who say you defiled a hallowed place by injecting reality and reminding the world that such evil existed and making us face the fact that it still exists today.

As one who remembers those days and observed them from afar, my hat is off to you, sir. I only wish that some of our other “public servants” would do something as realistic and useful.

As a Christian, I join hands with my Jewish brothers and sisters to reinforce the Israeli national motto, “NEVER AGAIN!”

What do you think?

Pray our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem. God Bless America

          Redshift Status Update, RX 480 Issues, and more        
With the summer months slowly winding to a close, folks here who are somewhat attentive might notice something: Redshift still isn't a completed project. Come September, Redshift would now have been under construction for over a year. Sad, right? Well, I have some explanations for it that are rather frustrating.

RX 480 Supply

The AMD Radon RX 480 has been one of the most successful GPU launches that AMD has ever had, with small issues aside. The demand for this card has been intense, especially with a lot of the "HD" card owners picking this card as their next upgrade. You also have to factor in crypto-currency mining, which has taken a particular liking to the RX 480 as well.

In Redshift's case, the demand hasn't been much of an issue because I wasn't going to get the reference design anyways, but rather I've been waiting patiently for MSI to put out their own custom version of the RX 480, the MSI RX 480 Twin Frozr. According to the reviews that I'm seeing, this card should be coming out in a week or so, so I really hope that I can manage to snag the card before that too sells out.

G.Skill KM 780 MX

As mentioned in a previous post, I did plan to do an overview of this keyboard. However, the pictures that I've taken of the keyboard when I unboxed it didn't come out so well, so I'm planning a new shoot of the product when I take the final build photos of Redshift to put here on the site. All of this being said, I can still say this: the keyboard is great! I've been using it for the past few weeks, and I'm very proud of it. Some folks, particularly on Reddit, seem to dislike this keyboard heavily in favor of the Corsair K70, but I differ in opinion.

Everything else aside, I hope to have Redshift finished as soon as possible. It's been down to the final part for months now, but as some already know I decided to delay and get the newer RX 480 since my original purchase was going to be right up to the new GPU launch anyways, but waiting for custom RX 480s has definitely taken longer than I would have liked.

Meanwhile, I've been working on other things that involved Redshift, like rolling back to Windows 7, which I might explain later at some point.

          Bitcoin splits        
Bitcoin splits

So much for financial unity 

Bitcoin has split into two different types after months of debate and development over how the currency would continue to evolve.

A new version of Bitcoin has been mined for the first time called Bitcoin Cash. Fears of large swings in the value of Bitcoin have so far not been realised - but some exchanges are still adapting to the new currency.

One expert said the process had gone smoothly so far and pointed out that trade in Bitcoin Cash seemed "robust". Bitcoin Cash was developed as a measure to increase the capacity of Bitcoin's underlying technology, the blockchain - a digital ledger that records every single transaction.

The old blockchain could only have one megabyte (MB) of data added to it every 10 minutes, transactions have come to be processed at slower rates. Bitcoin Cash blocks can be as large as 8MB, which its proponents hope will help to solve this problem.

Bitcoin Cash was officially born when block number 478559 - at just under 2MB in size - was mined.

No major issues have so far been detected following the split although a few exchanges and wallets have had minor technical issues with supporting Bitcoin Cash initially.

The new crypto-currency was trading comfortably above $400 about 12 hours after it was created.

Bitcoin itself saw a modest fall in price on Tuesday, but was still above $2,700 this morning.

Thanks to its larger block size, Bitcoin Cash requires more computer storage space from parties wishing to take part in the process of mining.

Mining involves computers being tasked with solving difficult mathematical problems in order to authorise transactions on the blockchain.

Bitcoin Cash might end the days of smaller players making cash out of the technology. It favours Bigger players with access to server farms and big budgets will have no problem running bigger nodes.


          Nvidia working on GTX 1060 mining driver        
Nvidia working on GTX 1060 mining driver

Improvement expected

A few sources have confirmed that Nvidia is working on a new driver that might improve mining performance. This seems to be the hot topic in the last few weeks. 

Nvidia is currently second in the Ethereum crypto currency mining game as the Geforce 1060 3GB cards perform a bit slower than the Radeon RX 480 or Radeon RX 580. It is needed to get the highest possible performance with as little power cost possible. Nvidia is taking the mining market seriously and it even created a dedicated 8 x GTX 1060 GP106 system for crypto currency market. 

After the initial setup of a machine with a motherboard such as Asrock H81 Pro BTC or Asrock H97 Anniversary, you need as many mining cards with at least 4GB RAM, 60 GB hard drive and Intel Celeron G1820 or G1840 CPU. The mining task is not CPU intensive at all, it is all about the compute power of the GPUs involved. These two motherboards will let you plug in up to six cards and 1100 W or higher PSU is recommended.

Geforce GTX 1060 3GB in the German market sells for about €195 while for the most part Radeon RX 580 is sold out or selling for close to €300 if you can find one in stock. Radeon RX 570 is closer to the €190 to €200 price-mark, but it is also sold out.There are a lot of how-to articles around the net

New crypto currency driver

Nvidia apparently has been working on a new driver that is targeted to improve the hash rate and compute power of the card. The key metric for miners is how many Megahashes per second you can deliver, and at what power. Radeon RX 480 is still the king of mining as you can get close to 24 Mh/s with less than 100W power. In case you are using six cards, you will burn at least 0.6 KW/h and if you mind the whole day, you can end up consuming around 14.4 KW. 

The real question is how much you need to spend for a kilowatt, and therefore applies to some countries, especially in eastern / south eastern Europe. For example, energy in Bosnia is almost two times cheaper than in Austria. Iceland seems to be the hot spot for crypto currency as energy is cheap and it is cold for the better part of the year. Yes, just like any compute intensive server, GPU crypto currency servers are getting hot, and the better you cool them, the longer they will last. 

Cryptocompare website did some math for you.


In case you pay US $0.4320 for your energy per day, the Radeon RX 480 with 25.0 MH/s rate makes a $ 5.68 return per day. This is, of course, based on the daily exchange rate and can vary in both directions. Based on these numbers one can make US $170.45 a month and pay off a US $199 priced Radeon RX 480/570 card in about 35 days. Return per year can be a whopping US $2,073.79 per card. A similar hash rate performance can be applied to the Geforce GTX 1060 cards but remember, we don’t make any recommendations, we are just here to inform the population.

These profit numbers are the reason of the Radeon RX 580 shortage.

          Bitcoin divides to rule        

COMPARED with Brexit, Bitexit seems a piece of cake. On August 1st, without much agonising or awkward negotiations, a group of Bitcoin activists and entrepreneurs managed to create a second version of the crypto-currency. It immediately gained a following: as The Economist went to press, a unit of “Bitcoin Cash” had a price of $460 and tokens worth $7.6bn were in circulation (although that is still much smaller than Bitcoin classic, which stood at about $2,700 and nearly $45bn).

This “fork”, as such events are called, came earlier than expected. But it is how insiders had expected a two-year-old conflict over the future of Bitcoin to end. At the heart of this “civil war” was the question of how to increase the capacity of the system, which can handle only up to seven transactions per second. The new version is able to process more than 50 per second, but otherwise works much like the original one.

Will Bitcoin Cash be more than just another “altcoin”, as the many existing clones of the crypto-currency are called? It is backed by Chinese “miners”, firms that provide the computing power to confirm payments and mint new digital coins. They have been unhappy with how the original system has been managed by its developers—and made some further technical tweaks to ensure that the...Continue reading

          IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Tuesday, August 8th

A new Domain Sherpa episode was published this morning. It’s fun to see the contrast of different styles between the “premium guys” and others. I think it’s great that Amaar and Frank  have confidence in their names to set those prices. Confidence and nerves of steal is really the only way to get those prices. I think that they were able to get to that level by working the lower end of names first. Frank talked about packaging a group of construction names, in the early days and selling them with a little sweat.

I’m certainly not opposed to shooting for those prices on certain names, and I do have an “out” by leaving the landing page without a BIN price. My main focus is moving and selling names because for me, having momentum and getting sales is more fun. As I progress I do occasionally put a really high BIN price on certain names.

My thinking has always been that pricing above 10K shrinks your audience down to a very small level, and that lower level is willing and able to spend money on aftermarket domains, just not that much. I’ve also found that if I put the work in, I can find lots of names that I think will sell everyday. It might not be the best course of action, I have no idea if I price every name I own at $25K if any would sell. I do think that the process I’ve followed has allowed me to better identify names that could sell for $25K and which ones will easily sell for a lower profit.

I’m glad that Ammar sold, I own and hopefully in a few years North Africa will stabilize and someone will buy it. :) I hand regged it a few year ago.

          The Unholy Trinity Is The Beast, His Image, And His Mark        

The Unholy Trinity Is The Beast, His Image, And His Mark

In order to get a full understanding about the content of this article, please read Revelation Chapter Thirteen

The Holy Trinity: The Father, The Son, And The Holy Spirit.

The Bible tells us about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

But emphasizes that there is only one God.

The reality of the Holy Trinity is that God is a spirit with unlimited power and ability and has chosen to represent Himself to us as a three part being who is really one.

The Dragon, The Beast, And The False Prophet.

Most prophecy books and articles claim that the unholy trinity of revelation thirteen is the dragon, the beast and the false prophet.

Or the devil, the antichrist, and the false prophet.

But I'm here suggesting and proving that the real unholy trinity of revelation thirteen is in fact the beast, his image, and his mark.

But this scenario is extremely more sinister and slightly more unbelievable than the other one.

So I ask the readers to keep an open mind and search the scriptures and pray themselves for validation and clarification to understand that what I'm about to reveal in this article is absolutely true.

First of all, we know that God's Holy Trinity consists of the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.

We know that the Father God has absolute power and authority and is all knowing or omnipotent.

And we know The Father sent His Son Jesus in His image to do His will.

Then we learned from Jesus that God sent us a helper, the Holy Spirit, who lives and dwells inside of us; who also teaches and guides us.

But before Jesus and the Holy Spirit arrived, prophecy foretold that John the Baptist was the prophet who made way for Jesus and fulfilled the early prophecies.

So then the false prophet in revelation thirteen is not part of the unholy trinity or the devils fake attempt to emulate and mock God for three reasons.

One is while the false prophet can do signs and wonders to trick people into worshiping the image of the beast, he cannot do what the Holy Spirit does.

He can not dwell inside of everyone in the world and collect information about them, but the mark of the beast is some kind of computer chip they'll put inside of people, which will have the ability to read and control a person's mind in addition to locate and identify everything about them including race, beliefs, social status, and finances.

Making it a perfect counterfeit of the Holy Spirit.

So the mark of the beast is the phony holy spirit, not the false prophet who is a counterfeit of John the Baptist, the real prophet.

Secondly, the dragon can't substitute the Father as the devil in the unholy trinity because he is limited in power and knowledge in comparison to God and most people wouldn't worship him knowing him as he is and what he's done.

And third, while the term antichrist would make you think the antichrist is the opposite of Christ; therefore, he's the counterfeit son.

The image of the beast better represents son-ship because his image is part of him just like the son Jesus is part of the Father God.

And also his mark is part of him just like the Holy Spirit is part of the Father and Son.

So the antichrist is the fake God that people will worship and by doing so they also worship the devil.

This also makes it so the false prophet comes before the Son just like John the Baptist, the true prophet, came before Jesus as the one crying in the wilderness.

Making the proper order the Father, the Prophet, the Son, then the Holy Spirit.

And the devils counterfeits; beast one, beast two, beast one image, beast one mark.

Now doesn't that make more sense?

Now here's where it gets scary.

The Beast, The Image, And The Mark.

The Beast

The antichrist world ruler and the combined supremacist political and blasphemous religious systems.

Revelation thirteen suggests that he probably is a CYBORG: or part man and part machine.

This would give him the ability to access all the information collected by the image of the beast that comes from the mark of the beast.

And therefore making him all knowing like God.

He is the devils counterfeit replacement of the all knowing, ever present, and all seeing omnipotent God the Father.

With the power of technology, his image and his mark, he'll have the ability to spy on and control everyone on planet earth.

The Image Of The Beast

Highly advanced ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and computer technology or a self thinking super computer brain programmed to carry out the will of his father the antichrist.

A counterfeit of Jesus which can process the information it receives from the mark and make decisions similar to a human but with far greater efficiency and without distractions.

Just look at the computer technology in your home, isn't it cool?

But I promise you the stuff they're using is light years ahead of that.

And for your information, the big three corporations are all funding artificial intelligence based projects: Microsoft, Google, and Apple.

And I'm sure there are plenty more lesser known companies as well.

Do some research and you'll see that artificial intelligence is closer to reality than you may think.

The Mark Of The Beast

Highly advanced personal identification, location tracking, MIND READING AND MIND CONTROLLING, computer micro-chip technology is the devils counterfeit replacement of the Holy Spirit of God, who dwells inside of us and knows everything about us including our innermost thoughts, fears, and desires of the past, present, and future.

OK, I know this part sounds far-fetched, but do a little research and you'll find that they've already proven that a computer can capture the thoughts of a human and display it on the screen like a phone conversation.

And they've already proven that a person can control a computer by thoughts alone and vice versa.

Not to mention all the subliminal advertising they've done on TV that works.

They'll easily send signals to control a person's mind.

The mark is probably meant to block the Holy Spirit from operating inside of people.

And that's most likely one of the main reasons God is so strict about not taking the mark of the beast.

Some people believe they already have a system in place to record, display, and process phone calls, text messages, and emails.

Do you really think they would tell you if they did?

Look at the GPS tracking capabilities of your phone.

Some of these phones can track your location even when they're turned off.

Look at the emergence of crypto-currency or cyber currency, it's not ready for prime time yet, but it certainly has a good testing ground until it is.

Other technological advances that are improving that can make a difference include satellites, the internet, and device battery life.

The ability to do these things is already here.

All they have to do is simply improve and combine the technologies.

The False Prophet

The religious leader or spiritual occult leader, who convinces people to worship the antichrist's three part beast system by performing miracles and propagating lies.

In conclusion, the devil must set up the antichrist with future technology as a three part being in order to duplicate the capabilities of God the Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit, because he doesn't have the ability to do what God can do: namely, he's not all powerful and knowing, he can't come back as a man like Jesus did, and he doesn't have a spirit that dwells inside of people like the Holy Spirit.

Once again, in order to get a full understanding about the content of this article, please read Revelation Chapter Thirteen.

          Life In Westminster (Season 5, Ep 9)        
Would you be an MP, at a time when public trust in politicians has fallen to the lowest level in living memory? Could you dedicate yourself to your constituents, yet also make time for your family, fighting fires on social media and keeping the media on-side? Wes Streeting, Labour MP for Ilford North since 2015, entered the fray in time to experience the Brexit vote, the murder of his colleague Jo Cox, and the Palace of Westminster coming under terrorist attack. In this candid interview with Olly, he lifts the lid on day-to-day life as a young MP in the House of Commons, from his experiences adapting to the weird traditions of voting and speaking in the House, to the perils of navigating Westminster’s gossipy backstairs bars and their modern-day digital equivalents on WhatsApp. Also this week, Ollie Peart completes even more of his challenges - experiencing a home-cooked Indian meal from Hersha Patel, securing VIP access to a festival, trying out the latest frankincense face-cream, and, er, pissing off the PR lady from the UK transfer of ‘Hamilton’. He even finds time to discuss a couple of actual trends for this week's Zeitgeist, namely the boom in crypto-currency Ethereum, and the teenage girl who loved K-Pop so much she put a hammer in her mouth.

          Aggregate Demand Management: "pass a law allowing the Fed to cut checks"        
Free Money for Everyone - "A wacky-sounding idea with surprisingly conservative roots may be our best hope for escaping endless, grinding economic stagnation." (via) Money creation in the modern economy - "The majority of money in the modern economy is created by commercial banks making loans. Money creation in practice differs from some popular misconceptions — banks do not act simply as intermediaries, lending out deposits that savers place with them, and nor do they 'multiply up' central bank money to create new loans and deposits. The amount of money created in the economy ultimately depends on the monetary policy of the central bank. In normal times, this is carried out by setting interest rates. The central bank can also affect the amount of money directly through purchasing assets or 'quantitative easing.' " Standing on the shoulders of cryptocurrency giants - "We start with HG Wells, who envisioned an entirely borderless open-ledger accounting system in his book The Shape of Things to Come (which also envisioned an age of abundance), written in 1933." Bitcoin's future could become the internet of money - "Some want ownership of devices—a car, say—to be represented by a Bitcoin, or a tiny fraction of it. The car would work only when turned on with a key that includes the Bitcoin token. This would make managing ownership of and access to physical assets much easier: the token could be sold or rented out temporarily, enabling flexible peer-to-peer car-rental schemes. Such 'smart property' would turn the blockchain into a global registry of ownership in physical assets." Silicon Valley is turning our lives into an asset class - "In the past few decades, Wall Street has made finance a central feature of both the global economy and of our everyday lives – a process often described as 'financialisation'. Silicon Valley, almost contemporaneously, has done the same for digital media technologies... Having disrupted Madison Avenue, the likes of Google and Facebook – armed with better data, better engineers and better databases – will disrupt Wall Street next. Silicon Valley companies sit on a trove of data about our most banal daily pursuits. And the kind of data that they gather will only grow more diverse, as the Faustian bargain that we first accepted in our browsers – letting strangers monitor what we do online in exchange for nominally free services – will be accepted in many other domains, especially as the rise of the 'internet of things' makes daily interaction with sensors, screens and other data-capturing devices unavoidable... In knowing your routes, your daily patterns and your contacts, Google has a far better picture of risk – for example, the odds that you will have an accident or default on a mortgage – than any insurance company or bank. And, in having unmediated access to you via your phone, Google can also sell you insurance or make you an offer for your personal data on the go, using a price point that you are most likely to accept." Expert takes on Capital in the Twenty-First Century
The influence of the wealthy on democratic politics and on how we think about merit and reward presents formidable obstacles. Fierce international competition for the rich and their dollars leads Piketty to believe that without a serious countermovement, capital taxation will trend toward zero. Inequality is becoming a "wicked" problem like climate change—one in which a solution must not only overcome powerful entrenched interests in individual countries but must be global in scope to be effective. Nonetheless, it is capital taxation, and ultimately global capital taxation, that Piketty sees as the eventual solution. Taxing only consumption and labor income violates the notion that citizens should finance the commonwealth on the basis of their ability to pay. A global capital tax—modest, progressive, based on transparency—could reinforce the fraying link between economic standing and individual contributions toward vital collective activities. Moreover, halting progress in this direction has already taken place, as rich countries seek—without great success so far—to crack down on the tax havens and corporate financial engineering that increasingly make taxes voluntary for the superrich. Because wealth is still so concentrated in advanced industrial nations, agreements that covered citizens of and transactions within Europe and North America would go a long way toward bringing these activities into the open. A modest tax on the largest fortunes might also encourage more productive uses of capital, gradually taxing away big estates with small returns. Piketty suggests that the pressures for change will eventually prove overwhelming. Either ever-richer capitalists will tear one another apart in the race for diminishing returns, or the rest of society will rise up and impose a fairer framework. For a book that insists on the primacy of politics, however, Piketty has relatively little to say about how—with organized labor weakened, moneyed interests strengthened, and anti-government forces emboldened—the kind of political movement necessary for a fairer future will emerge.
Inequality is weighing on growth and fueling political instability - "A severely skewed income distribution harms the pace and sustainability of growth over the longer term. It leads to an economy of exclusion, and a wasteland of discarded potential." To boost the economy, spread the wealth - "Redistribution is overall pro-growth. On average, across countries and over time, the things that governments have typically done to redistribute do not seem to have led to bad growth outcomes, unless they were extreme. And the resulting narrowing of inequality helped support faster and more durable growth."

          Precious Metals And Bitcoin-Twin Destroyers Of The Fiat Regime, Part lll        
After Whirlybird Janet’s “ding dong, the Fed is dead” speech 2½ weeks ago, I predicted the “final currency war” I first warned of 4½ years ago would be taken to Defcon 1 – as all Central banks aggressively respond to the America’s increasingly inflationary monetary policy; particularly, after its “low interest rate person” President installs Yellen’s replacement early next year.  And lo and behold, last night’s Royal Bank of Australia policy statement “warned” that a stronger Aussie dollar would “contribute to subdued price pressures”; as it was “weighing on the outlook for output and employment”; which in turn, would “result in a slower pick-up in economic activity and inflation than currently forecast.”  In other words, its GAME ON in the global race to debase; simultaneous with, care of the gold Cartel, the lowest-ever inflation adjusted Precious Metal prices; and plunging gold and silver  production, as Steve St. Angelo pointed out last night – of how Chilean silver production is down a stunning 32% year-over-year. Irrespective, the dollar continues to plunge to lows last seen more than a year ago; as now that the “reserve currency” issuer has made it clear that additional rate hikes aren’t happening; and likely, any hope of a balance sheet “exit strategy”; essentially nothing the administrators of “lesser fiat toilet papers” say or do matters.  Which is why it was so irritating watching PM’s yesterday, amidst maniacal Cartel capping featuring the time-honored DLITG, or “don’t let it turn green” algorithm.  And thus, why Precious Metal holders (like myself) become increasingly angry with each passing day; not just for the financial damage done to us personally, but the political, economic, and social damage incurred on the “99%,” for the benefit of the 1%.  Which is why, per today’s second follow-up to May 2016’s “Precious Metals and Bitcoin – Twin Destroyers of the Fiat Regime,” I am so excited about the dramatic, generational impact of crypto-currency. On the eve of this extremely important challenge for Bitcoin – i.e., the “Bitcoin Cash” hard fork that is anticipated to occur less than an hour from now, at 8:20 AM EST (ironically, the same time as the COMEX open) – I attended the Denver Bitcoin Society meetup, where I was honored to kick off the meeting with a few words.  Which were, that in my role as Marketing Director of one of the nation’s oldest, most trusted bullion dealers, I am […]

          Bitcoin and blockchain: the future of money or overhyped? Join the debate        

Are we facing the next frontier of currency? Like bartering and banknotes before it, blockchain could revolutionise the way we distribute wealth and account for our transactions. A recent World Economic Forum survey found that most experts think blockchain, the technology that underpins bitcoin, will become mainstream by 2025. But for every person who thinks blockchain is the future of money, there’s another that thinks it’s all just fantasy hype. We’ll be putting these opinions head-to-head.

The FT is hosting a debate that includes you, our readers, in an integral role. On Wednesday, September 14 at 1pm UK time, Izabella Kaminska of FT Alphaville will face Simon Taylor, co-founder and blockchain director of 11FS. Izabella thinks blockchain and bitcoin are an utter waste of time; Simon believes strongly in the future of crypto-currencies. The debate will be live for one hour, moderated by Carola Hoyos, editor of the FT’s report on accounting.

We want you to join in and help us write the story. Share your questions and opinions in the comments here (under Live Reader Comments), or by emailing, before and through the debate. Together they will form the front page story of the FT's report on accountancy to be published on September 22.

On a blog-post published this morning, at the address , Australian cryptocurrency expert Dr Craig Wright outed himself as Satoshi, the creator of the “blockchain”, the shared online ledger upon which bitcoin works, and which records all bitcoin transactions.

In it, Dr Wright says he will prove beyond all doubt he is the mysterious Satoshi – an individual that in-depth investigations from the likes of Wired, Newsweek and The New Yorker have all failed to conclusively uncover – by “signing” an early bitcoin address, something many experts say would prove he is the creator.

          Crypto currency vs. credit card network        

@blackie wrote:

There is a use case for bitcoin, but it isn't every transaction. It doesn't seem very good for face to face transactions.

I've heard people try to compare bitcoin and other crypto currencies to the credit card network.

One problem with that comparison is that on the credit card network I'm not spending my money, I am using credit....someone else's money. I can dispute a charge, and never pay it. and I usually get a discount for using credit as some percentage as "cash back". It also builds my credit score to use credit.

With bitcoin and other crypto currency, you have to put your own money at risk to perform a transaction. And then you are charged a transaction fee every time you want to use your money.

Bitcoin is also in the beta stage from everything I hear. That means it is in a testing phase, and there are known problems.

It seems like most bitcoin proponents are not having an honest discussion, they are marketing bitcoin.
