Five Bitcoin Board Games - The Bitcoin News

Freebay AG

Jesus H. Christ, I nearly fell hook, line and sinker for what appears to be an innocuous triangle on the surface but is actually a lording pyramid in truth.

On Monday my friend who happens to be a semi-pro sportsman with his eyes on the financial freedom dream you see in YouTube ads rocks up to my house. He's parked outside and reckons to me, "dude, are you keen to go to a board game thing where you learn how to manage your finances?"
I'm usually against financial preaching and stuff because it usually sounds hokey and bullshit, but against my better judgement I cave in and we go. The whole ride there he's telling me about this amazing mentor that's going to make me learn about making money without any effort, a dude I'm going to call James. Now James is a charming, well-off guy with a family. He doesn't quite have the YouTube millionaire lifestyle that you usually expect in this sort of 'profession' but I'd happily trade places with him if the opportunity presented itself.

Anyhow, from moment one, James and my friend are mouthing off incessantly about how much money they're making on Freebay. Mind you, I'm oblivious to what the fuck is going on because I don't understand what's cracking - but literally the whole time there's graphs on a screen, and they're talking about these magical AI bots that guarantee returns on investment. Now this is South Africa, and these blokes are talking about making something like 10 000 USD in a month!? Do you know that 10 000 USD in South Africa is like enough to pay for an entire undergraduate degree at the best university in the country, and these geezers are making this shit in a month? Fucking hell.

Anyhow, we digress from the discussion about Bitcoin and that to get to the meat and potatoes of the meet-up, which was to play that Cashflow game that that bloke who wrote Rich Dad Poor Dad formulated. Before we got to playing the game we had this zoom webinar with fellow victims... I mean participants, and they're all monotonously droning on with a despondent stare the same principles from this book that's supposed to be the Bible to financial freedom. There's a charismatic bloke leading the charge and the whole thing feels eerily reminiscent to a cult, in retrospect. You see, in the moment I'm eating all of this shit up about how wealth is a mindset and what not, and when I consider the conversation that was had around me just before the webinar - I saw two positive blokes trusting in this 'company' or whatever and seeing clear cut returns. Maybe they're right, maybe they're onto something. We play this game and that's all I'm thinking about: passive income, wealth, financial freedom - FREEBAY.

After the game, I'm sat talking to this James bloke, his missus and my mate. They're apparently all on this Freebay tip making stacks of foreign cash that doesn't get taxed by the government, and now they're sizing me up. I tell them I'm a small-time writer in uni studying to become a teacher. They tell me that I can exponentially increase my earning potential by watching the link to video that my friend had sent to me during the webinar, and then by opting into a 190 EUR package... the same things I running through my mind: passive income, wealth, financial freedom - FREE FUCKING BAY.

And then I go home, ruminate over the whole thing and begin my research. The whole thing? A facade. Apparently, this Freebay shit was being run under the name of some other pyramid/ponzi-esque cryptocurrency racket called Karatbay and people got fucking conned out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Suddenly, I realise from the website that they posture themselves as 'affiliate marketers' or whatever in an attempt to hide in plain sight. What's worse is that when I play the sequence of events back in my mind from the beginning when my friend randomly rocked up to my house, the whole thing felt like an entire fucking rat trap and I nearly fell for it too. What blows is that my buddy is balls deep in the pyramid and he's blinded by the illusion that he'll find wealth with these people. He's on the prowl for every friend, family member and acquaintance he can get his hands on and it sucks to see him acting this way.

I just thought I'd share my story. Always be on the lookout guys, these motherfuckers are everywhere - try and save your buddies from this shite. Also, I just thought it'd be wise to mention the name FreeBay in any anti-MLM rhetoric you spew, because these people are predatory as hell.

So you made a million bucks with BTC? Congratulations! Now consider not cashing out...

TL;DR Don't cash out, spend the BTC instead. And if you really need to, only cash out for real estate or some other big financial commitment.
 
Many people have become millionaires thanks to BTC, and many more will. I certainly hope I will be one. But it seems people are extremely keen on "cashing out", which IMO is the worst thing you could do, for three reasons.
  1. If you cash out, you're treating BTC like any other asset, which does not help the ecosystem, the Bitcoin economy. I know you're not in this to help others, that's fair. But that is exactly why traditional assets crash, everyone wanting to cash out with no buyers left. And the more bumpy the road to the moon, the slower the mainstream adoption. BTC does not have to crash!! Why?
  2. One fundamental difference between BTC and, say, shares and bonds is that with BTC you can BUY STUFF!. No need to convert to fiat to buy shit, you can do this directly with BTC. Nobody will sell you bread for shares, take bonds for rent and your latest gaming rig cannot be bought on 40% shares and 60% bonds. You can do this with BTC! And by doing this you are helping twice, one because any sell pressure disappears, and two because you are helping the BTC economy. If you look hard enough, you can even find someone willing to sell you a house for BTC. Lacking that, cash out the minimum necessary to buy a house, repay some crippling debt or something else like that. For the rest, spend BTC. (Amazon will sure jump on-board soon, so life will be sorted.)
  3. OK, so let's say you really do want to cash out and invest elsewhere. Where do you put your money? In case you missed the investment mantra of the last ~10yrs, yields and returns are at historical lows AND are here to stay, the stock market is overvalued by historical levels and there's an ever increasing supply of gold. For any shot at a decent return you are left with... CRYPTO! Maybe spend some fiat to buy property to rent out, will provide an income stream. Anything else is highly questionable. And how are you gonna protect yourself against inflation and/or a collapse of major fiat currencies, which is going to be your "store of value" of choice? OK, get some gold & silver. For the rest... BTC anyone?
 
There you have it. The whole idea of cashing out, at its core, conflicts with fundamental idea behind BTC, which is to be a new form of money, not just "the next asset to ride all the way up and then dump". Spend that wise investment, treat yourself, but stick to BTC!!
To change the world, our personal habits must change first. Be a pioneer.

Why the Bitcoin Error Log Interview is Important

In a recent interview between John Carvahlo, CEO of Xotika and owner of the YouTube channel Bitcoin Error Log, and Roger Ver, millionaire Bitcoin investor and owner of the web domain bitcoin.com, tensions rise to all time highs much like the price of the coin these two individuals sponsor. In this near 45 minute interview that was cut short due to the latter “Rage-Quitting”, a lot was revealed from the core philosophies surrounding both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash in the 2017 market of crypto currencies.
The interview begins and ends with a discussion over the name “Bcash” which was infamously given to Bitcoin Cash by its opponents in the crypto-sphere. Bitcoin Cash was given the name Bcash by the Bitcoin community so as to not create confusion between the two coins as well as to anger the supporters of Bitcoin Cash; a tactic which appears to be quite effective as demonstrated in this interview. To be fair to Roger Ver, Carvahlo did seem a bit unprofessional by not trying to avoid calling Bitcoin Cash Bcash or by getting equally as heated as Roger Ver, but it’s a free market and there are no rules or laws that prevent him from doing as he pleases.
On one side we have Roger Ver, vehemently defending the honour of Bitcoin Cash as the truest form of the white paper created by Satoshi Nakamoto. On the other hand we have John Carvahlo who seems to use the term Bcash to delegitimize the claim that Bitcoin Cash is the true Bitcoin, to avoid confusion between the two coins for any newcomers to the crypto currency space and to annoy Roger Ver. Through out the rest of the interview, between overlapping rebuttals, some bits of information are dropped that reveal a lot about the true intention of one party in particular.
For starters Roger Ver claims that Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system to which Carvahlo disagrees as the presence of nodes on the network suggests otherwise. And I have to agree with John Carvahlo. Nothing on the Internet is truly peer-to-peer. The Internet itself suffers from forms of centralization between Internet Service Providers and the regional nodes they get the Internet from. The Internet in 2017 is void of any direct communication between peers; there are always middlemen in between. This brings up another topic discussed during the interview, whether or not Bitcoin as a network is truly decentralized.
For starters, Roger Ver claims that varying degrees of centralization are acceptable within the network and he expects the network to become more and more centralized as the growth of Bitcoin continues. To which I half agree. I think anarchy as governance is flawed; some political structure is necessary, such as Athenian democracy. Yes the Internet’s structure as well as that of the Bitcoin network, with the nodes and the ever-increasing difficulty of mining, can both guarantee that the Bitcoin network will never be truly decentralized and peer-to-peer. But what is worrying is what degree of centralization Roger Ver is ok with; and that is the heart of the scaling debate.
​Yes at times the Bitcoin network suffers from slow transaction times and high fees. Yes scaling is a problem with a desperate need for a solution. No, increasing the block size is not the answer.
​First, lets dissect Roger Ver’s position on bigger blocks. He claims that over the last 7 to 8 years, the Bitcoin blocks have scaled successfully and that empirically, it is a proven scaling solution that will lower transaction fees and times. The problem with that is his premise that Bitcoin has been scaling since the beginning is completely wrong and paints his cause in a preferred light. Bitcoin has not been scaling since 2009. When Bitcoin was created, within the code a block size limit was written. The block size limit has to be defined for blockchain to work because that would be a coding error. It would cause network stalls during periods of high traffic where a block could in theory never fill if enough transactions are being sent to the network at once. This is what is known as a Sybil attack. So from a certain point in time early in Bitcoin’s development, a block size limit of 1MB was coded into Bitcoin. Roger Ver claims that over the years, the block size grew from 1 KB to 2KB, so on and so forth until it reached the 1MB block size but that is wrong. The blocks always had room for 1MB but were very small due to the amount of transactions present in the mempool. That’s like saying my 100 mL cup that is half filled is actually a 50 mL cup because only half of it is being used. It’s still a 100 mL cup. And this is important because it proves that bigger blocks as a scaling solution has not been empirically tested. Which is why an “altcoin with a smaller market cap is being used to test new features”; it’s called Bitcoin Cash.
Another point that was not talked about during the interview is how bigger blocks cause greater miner centralization, the most critical flaw of the bigger blocks approach. With ASIC’s and ASIC Boost, it has become incredibly difficult for any individual to start mining Bitcoin for a profit. A large upfront investment into specialized mining hardware is required in order to generate a profit. This means that mining or the process of validating transactions is becoming more and more reserved to wealthy individuals. And this is apparently, arguably bad; at least Roger Ver seems to be ok with varying degrees of centralization. Except the whole point of crypto currencies is that no individual or no individual group should be able to control the network for their own self interest; we have fiat currency for that. So then when increasing the block size, yes more transactions are able to be processed in one block which does reduce fees and settling times except that bigger blocks are harder to mine, pushing the mining process further into centralization. It’s also a temporary solution because with the growing number of Bitcoin users, a bigger block size limit will be reached requiring another hard fork to increase the block size limit. This is like adding lanes to a highway because too many drivers are present on the road; it’s a bandaid solution that avoids the root of the problem.
This interview is important because between the well-rehearsed lines and the pressing questions, within his off-script bouts of rage, the true Roger Ver shines bright. Roger Ver talks about Bitcoin as if it’s a company. He criticizes the Core development team because since their arrival into the space, he claims that the market cap of Bitcoin has been “bleeding out” and that it’s losing its market share to altcoins, pointing to its drop in market dominance as proof. He might be right, or perhaps more and more people are looking at the wealth of early Bitcoin adopters and are trying to get rich from altcoins that could see similar growth. Or maybe it’s because altcoins aren’t direct competitors to Bitcoin and are using blockchain to solve real world problems and people are seeing their value. Regardless, he also argues that not anybody is able to contribute code to Bitcoin. And all of this is a twisted version of reality that pushes his agenda. Anybody today can write code for Bitcoin, and through community consensus can have it implemented. Roger Ver did not have the opportunity to defend his claim during the interview, but I think it’s apparent that because block size increases have been repeatedly shut down by the community, he claims that nobody outside Core can contribute code to Bitcoin. That’s just not true. Segwit, a Bitcoin feature added through node consensus, is allowing for the lightning network, a layer 2 scaling solution, to be independently developed by passionate members of the Bitcoin community. The very idea of a BIP (Bitcoin Improvement Proposal) was proposed and implemented by a community member. Roger Ver also often refers to permissions on the GitHub repository as “the keys” as if any one person can own the network like a house. This is false. The reason why the core developers code is widely accepted is because the community supports the work they’re doing. Roger Ver says it himself: he believes we need to let the market decide what coin is the true Bitcoin. Except that it already has. If people wanted bigger blocks, Bitcoin Cash would be called Bitcoin. It is also worth noting that the market has decided multiple times that it does not want to increase the block size as other Bitcoin forks that Roger Ver has supported in the past, namely Bitcoin Classic and Bitcoin Unlimited, have failed.
Roger Ver claims that people who call Bitcoin Cash, Bcash have been brainwashed by its opponents. He believes that Segwit is adopted by brainwashed individuals. As if nobody in the Bitcoin community can think for themselves; we’re all just sheep waiting for a shepherd like Roger Ver to tell us what’s right. Except that by purposefully misleading newcomers to the crypto space by calling his website that supports Bitcoin Cash, bitcoin.com, by misleading the newcomers by not clearly explaining the differences between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin on the wallet app his website sponsors and by also calling Bitcoin, Bitcoin Core or Bitcoin Segwit, he’t not only being a hypocrite for criticizing Carvahlo for name calling, he’s also issuing his own brand of brainwashing instead of letting new users decide for themselves which coin is the real Bitcoin. If his claims that Core and Core supporters are brainwashing people were true, Roger Ver would be just as guilty of doing this.
A final point I would like to make is how both camps view Bitcoin philosophically. The Bitcoin supporters mostly view Bitcoin as a store of value while Bitcoin Cashers view Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer digital cash. And I want to point out that Bitcoin fails tremendously in its current state at being a dollar killer, a digital cash. Bitcoin as a store of value has succeeded tremendously. People all over the world are using Bitcoin to have value traverse borders with ease, to send value to loved ones without going through Western Union or as an investment vehicle. In that sense, Bitcoin is truly like digital gold. As a currency, it has seen some success in terms of adoption. Many merchants accept Bitcoin as a form of payment. You can even buy airline tickets with Baltic Airlines via Bitcoin. But, in my opinion, neither Bitcoin nor Bitcoin Cash could today successfully replace fiat currency. If today either coin were adopted globally, both coins in their current state would face tremendous scaling issues, causing insanely high transaction fees and slow confirmation times. The lightning network is showing more promise than bigger blocks as it doesn’t push miner centralization, it actually decreases the amount of transactions on chain but it has yet to be seen if this solution will work. Without scaling as an issue, both coins also suffer from a deflationary problem, which many economists argue disqualifies most crypto currencies as a good fiat replacement. That however, is a different topic.
The scaling debate should not be a debate anymore. The community has been offered a currency with larger blocks, lower fees and faster settling times, time and time again. It had Bitcoin Classic, Bitcoin Unlimited, Bitcoin Cash and Segwit 2X to decide and the answer has been an astounding no. If users truly desired a coin that fit this description, Litecoin would lead the crypto currency market, or any other crypto currency like it. But the fact is Bitcoin in its flawed state leads the pack and nobody today uses Bitcoin as a digital cash as Satoshi Nakamoto intended. Just like nobody avoids eating shrimp and other crustaceans because the Bible said it was a great sin. I believe the topic on crypto forums should no longer be scaling as Segwit is being adopted through consensus and the Lightning Network is imminent. If it fails to scale Bitcoin, then we’ll go back to the drawing board. I think the true debate should be whether the community wants Bitcoin to truly be a replacement for fiat currencies or if it should remain a store of value like gold.
Either way, this interview gives the crypto community a glimpse at the real Roger Ver, a used-car-salesmen type who rehearses his lines and changes definitions to paint his cause in the proper light. A guy who is ok with Bitcoin becoming centralized. A guy who likes to flash his cash and likes to belittle others for making less money than him and for operating legitimate businesses within the sex industry. A guy who disagrees with the decisions the Bitcoin community has made over the years so instead of creating his own currency and leaving the Bitcoin brand alone, he constantly pushes a skewed narrative of Core and Bitcoin and how it’s flawed. How Bitcoin Cash is the true Bitcoin. He acts like a paternal figure, knowing what’s best for the community despite it’s previous choices and loses his temper when it’s evident he doesn’t have control; like an abusive lover. If his intentions were honest, why would he try to steal the Bitcoin brand? Why would he try to tarnish the name of the thing that gave him a large part of his wealth in the first place? Personally, it seems to me like he’s that kid at the playground, the one that nobody wanted to play games by his rules. Instead of finding someone else to play with, he tries to manipulate others, takes fits when he doesn’t get his way and ultimately decides for everyone that if he can’t have his way, then nobody should.

The deconstruction of money: Prosperity when wealth ceases to exist

Here's a question to ponder: How do you conjure 300 billion dollar out of thin air? The answer, if you hadn't guessed it yet, is cryptocurrency. People used to laugh at this phenomenon, but they're not laughing anymore. They're feeling the same emotions about this phenomenon that I felt four years ago: They're worried and excited at the same time.
Bitcoin is a first, but not just in one domain. It's a first in most of its defining characteristics. We have witnessed the emergence of a means of exchange whose rate of inflation is predictable. Nobody can create more than 21 million Bitcoin, we can merely find ourselves disagreeing about the definition of a Bitcoin, which is starting to happen.
Despite its scarcity, Bitcoin has no intrinsic value. We're now beginning to discover that this doesn't matter, something most economists and academics had not anticipated. Just as an artist can earn money by shitting in a can, you can earn money by producing virtual currency. What we don't know yet is how far this phenomenon can grow. As of speaking, it gobbles up 0.1% of the world's electricity. As a means of doing anonymous transactions, it's pretty much useless compared to the alternatives that have succeeded Bitcoin.
In the worst case scenario, Bitcoin is like Microsoft or Facebook, in the sense that its network effect and early mover advantage allow it to eliminate all competition. This results in the dystopian scenarios I have frequently discussed before. In a more realistic scenario however, Bitcoin ceases to grow eventually. This makes more sense to me. Consider this: Would you invest in something that has grown in value 100-fold over the past two years? You would probably be wise enough to recognize that other investment options have more growth potential left. If enough people understand this, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we assume that people buy Bitcoins to get rich quick, they'll stop buying them when it becomes clear it won't allow them to get rich. As a result, its value will eventually crash.
Note the difference between Bitcoin and Windows here. We're not using Windows because we think it has growth potential. We're using Windows because everyone else uses Windows and thus it's easier for us to communicate. You don't genuinely buy Bitcoin because you want to use it. You buy Bitcoin because you expect others will want to buy it from you at a higher price. To put this in simpler terms: If we use something merely because we expect its use will grow in the future, it can't come to dominate the market it's in.
To own Bitcoin means to forever have a sword of Damocles hanging over your head. You bought it because you expect its value to rise. At the same time, you are aware that it suffers from existential threats: Government intervention, a superior alternative taking over, a rush for the exit that the network can't process, a 51% attack, an unanticipated protocol flaw, an early adapter who wants to cash out. You're willing to take those risks when you expect its value may rise 100-fold. You're no longer willing to take those risks when you expect its value might double in the next ten years. The innate instability of Bitcoin ensures it will forever remain a niche phenomenon.
Here's a question to ponder: Why buy Bitcoin, if you and your friends can invent your own coin that you distribute among yourselves? If I had to choose between entering a country where all the land is owned by a small minority or entering a country where I can still freely stake a claim to my own land, I would choose the latter option. People throughout history have understood this principle, which is why small communities came up with their own currency systems.
The general trend throughout history has been that these alternative currency systems were destroyed by those who felt threatened by them. It's a little known fact that whenever local currencies emerge that seem to replace a government issued currency, governments tend to respond by shutting them down. It happened in Germany in 1931, it happened to the Liberty dollars in the United States and it happens in more situations, when the alternative currency becomes a threat.
Of course, alternative currencies rarely become a genuine threat to the status quo. The reason is because people can generally create new units out of thin air. Whatever institute issues the alternative currency has no means to prohibit you from doing so. Today, we know that this is no longer a valid issue, due to cryptocurrency. As a result, this controlled issuance allows people to interpret alternative currencies as having a genuine value, based on the expectation that they will be able to find someone to sell it to when they feel the need to.
What this means is a fantastic development for those of us who fear the extreme inequality we witness today. The nature of wealth is that it tends to accumulate. Those who are wealthy have the means to become wealthier, whereas those of us without wealth have no such means. Then eventually, when wealth has accumulated to extreme degrees, the elite has found itself in possession of most of the world's fertile land and natural resources. Then, those with their backs against the wall tend to rise up in revolt and exterminate the aristocracy.
Today, after the invention of cryptocurrency, revolutions work differently. When we see that the game is rigged against us, that you own everything there is to own, we cease acknowledging your protocol and set up our own. We don't participate in games that we can't win. We're unable to ignore land ownership, if you cling onto the land, you risk ending up beneath the guillotine. We're perfectly able however, to stop pretending that a Bitcoin is something more than a series of ones and zeros in a digital database. This outcome is already unfolding. Why is Bitcoin losing its dominant position in the ecosystem? Because people realize that the game is rigged against them. Most people are simply not dumb enough to spend 10,000 dollar to buy one bitcoin. Smart people look for other opportunities.
How does a revolution look? Consider what happened a few weeks ago, when Bitcoin ended up clogged and a competing protocol, Bitcoin Cash, suddenly grew enormously in value. This revolution was prematurely aborted, but the underlying issues have not been addressed. Bitcoin is still bumping up against its transaction capacity, wealth is still monopolized in the hands of a shrinking group, a single Bitcoin still has an intimidatingly high value to all but a small group of wealthy people who have no intention to actually use the currency. As a result, hedge-fund managers and trust fund kids are now buying first class tickets to board the Titanic.
Understand the following principle: The unequal distribution of a currency undermines its use value. A currency owned by a small group of wealthy people is subject to dramatic price fluctuations. The stock market suffered a sudden dramatic collapse in 1929, during an era when wealth inequality was at its most extreme. The reason is simple. If the distribution of an asset is extreme in its inequality, it becomes impossible to estimate the fair value of the asset.
This is the problem that Bitcoin inevitably suffers. The wealth inequality of Bitcoin increases over time, as hackers are able to steal Bitcoins, while those who find themselves wealthy all of a sudden tend to exit the scheme. As this unequal distribution grows worse, the instability of Bitcoin grows worse too. Economists have long known that wealth inequality and speculative bubbles go hand in hand. We see high prices right now for Bitcoin, but this is merely because nobody wants to exit at the moment. As soon as people want to leave the scheme, they'll find it's simply not possible at current prices. I expect that Bitcoin could see its price drop by 90% or more, over a period of days. People will find themselves unable to leave the scheme during such a period, because the transaction capacity on the network is limited.
When Bitcoin falls apart, people will see that the underlying technology has more genuine potential than this particular faulty implementation. As a result, another redistribution of wealth will take place. One important thing to understand is that currencies gain value because of broad use. Broad use is accomplished, by broad distribution. In its early days, everyone could mine bitcoins and everyone could use faucets where they were handed out for free. As a result, a core community emerged.
Note that the broad distribution that creates value does not have to contradict the unequal distribution that creates its high price. Value and price are not always well correlated. In regards to Bitcoin however, the more important point is that the currency grew in price by inheriting both characteristics: It's widely distributed, but most of the coins are actually held by a small minority. This small minority thus has a lot of wealth, on paper. They won't be able to actualize their wealth, if they tried to cash out the value of Bitcoin would take a plunge.
You will find that Bitcoin's role as a speculative bubble will be replaced by various competing technologies, but its role as a digital currency will be replaced by currencies that are broadly distributed. As an example of how this will work in the future, consider Clams. Clams are a digital currency with an egalitarian and wide distribution. Anyone who owned a range of currencies ended up owning Clams. This has proved to be free money, for people who paid attention. The project was abandoned by its developer, but it demonstrated the way forward for others. There are now various Bitcoin forks, that hand out their coins to entire swathes of the population, while handing out extra coins to its own developers. Those developers do end up profiting off their invention, simply because the wide distribution creates interest in the coin.
In contrast to what you might think, these various new currencies don't have to die out. In contrast to offline currencies, digital currencies can be extremely easily exchanged for one another. Merchants are able to accept coins they have never heard of for products they sell, simply because the underlying infrastructure is managed for them by third parties. So, what credible reason do people have to put their trust entirely in Bitcoin? The answer is simple: None. The herd has discovered Bitcoin, but the herd will consume it and bring about its demise, as the protocol can't scale.
But what if I'm wrong? What if Bitcoin can scale? Well, the answer to that question is simple: Bitcoin can't scale. A form of Bitcoin that can scale ceases to be Bitcoin. Bitcoin is characterized by 1 MB blocks, which limits transaction capacity to 3 transactions per second, which is a fraction of what credit card companies can handle per second. If Bitcoin increases its block size, a new currency comes into existence, that needs new software and would leave users who fail to update their software at risk of losing their coins. What about off-chain scaling? Off-chain scaling requires settlement on the 1 MB blockchain. As a result, those who plan to develop off-chain scaling methods admit that Bitcoin would need 133 MB blocks, simply to accomplish the goals they have set for it. The system can't function under those conditions.
What happens if Bitcoin does somehow develop off-chain scaling and starts to use 133 Mb blocks? The energy needed to mine Bitcoins increases dramatically. As a result, the number of people who can mine Bitcoin goes down, mining Bitcoin will only be an option for people in places with dramatically low energy prices. In addition, governments would be unlikely to accept having 90% of their national electricity use be devoted to mining Bitcoins. A currency that requires solving pointless computer problems to distribute it is a currency that remains forever a niche phenomenon. There will be no consensus around how to change the protocol, it will endlessly fracture until it renders itself obsolete.
Important to understand is that cryptocurrencies don't allow you to hold onto extreme wealth. Consider Bitcoin. In its early days, there were plenty of smart people who saw its potential. But if you're a billionaire, how would you use a currency worth less than your own net worth, to increase your own wealth? The answer is that you can't. Small projects grow the most, but small projects can't fit your wealth inside of them. The effect this has is that the extremely unequal global distribution of wealth we witness today will be rectified. The habit that extreme wealth has is that it doesn't survive dramatic changes to the status quo.
Until a few years ago, Bitcoin was the domain of basement dwelling NEETs and angry libertarian gun-nuts. But what we can do, anyone can do. If you live in a community that suffers poverty, you can set up your own currency that you use among each other and by virtue of the fact that you use it, it grows in value. What we have done with Bitcoin, has been done by other people too. If you don't think you can win under our rules, you change the rules and play your own game. There are now numerous currencies out there that have given birth to anonymous millionaires, while many more like me have made smaller fortunes.
As I have mentioned before, technology is a self-limiting phenomenon. Technology in its most advanced stages consumes its own niche and as a result leaves us off without the technology. With self-driving cars, the car starts to die out. With lab-grown meat, meat dies out. The Internet, destroyed the concept of possession. Why should I buy a car, if it idles 95% of the time? Why should I visit a hotel, if people can rent out their room to me? Why should I own a book, if the information I seek is accessible under my fingertips? Why should I even own anything? In Sillicon Valley, digital nomads live without any genuine possessions, other than a smartphone, a laptop and the clothing they wear.
What has remained off-limits so far, is the concept of wealth itself. The idea of wealth has survived the digital transition, even as everything else has been rendered obsolete. This is now coming to an end. We live in an era, where the concept of wealth is being deconstructed. One important principle in this observation is the issue of scarcity. Things have value, because demand for them is higher than their supply. In Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, houses are practically for sale for free, because the population has declined by a quarter since the fall of the Soviet Union. How can physical space have a price when there is more of it than anyone needs? It can't. It can only have a price when a small elite is allowed to keep it off limits to the rest of us, without making use of it themselves.
But now, we face the finalization of the deconstruction of wealth. What does it mean to own anything? How can anything have value, if it is not scarce? Are you still wealthy, if your wealth must remain a secret? If you can't flaunt the fact that you're a millionaire, you can't genuinely be thought of as rich. Cryptomillionaires are men who have wealth they can't genuinely use. Under those conditions, the illusion of power begins to die. We see today that money is a joke. You can print money in your parents' basement and people will treat it as genuine money. The next step is the recognition that wealth is a joke. The society we are entering is one where wealth loses its relevance, until it eventually can't be defined. The very concept itself is ceasing to make sense. It is a nightmare we imposed upon ourselves and now we will no longer believe in it.
The history of civilization is the exchange of wealth for fertility. The man accumulates resources, passes those on to his male descendants and the men monopolize young women to disproportionately pass on their own genes to the next generation. This became possible, when the concept of ownership became possible. There exists no inequality, among hunter-gatherers who have no ability to press a claim to resources. In primitive communities where everyone lives near a river dense with fish, some men end up claiming "ownership" over the river and soon enough we witness hereditary castes, monarchs and inherited wealth. In the Kalahari desert, where people depend on animals that run around and Mongongo nuts that can be consumed, there is no property, as there is nothing to claim ownership over. You might claim ownership over a plot of desert, sure, but how will you enforce it? You can't and thus everyone is equal.
The concept of wealth had a nice run. It survived from the Neolithic revolution until the digital revolution, when it was rendered obsolete. It transformed young sturdy women with bows in their hands and hair on their legs into airbrushed trophy wives who sell their bodies to the highest bidders. What we know as a human being today is entirely corrupted by thousands of years of civilization, during which a corrupt aristocracy disproportionately passed on its genes and turned life itself into a cynical pursuit of material wealth. Today we are saying farewell to them.
Have you ever thought about what we are leaving behind us? In a society where social status is inherited, like in India, you eventually end up with hereditary underclasses who are made to carry around leaking baskets with human excrement on their heads. Alexandra Kollontai became a Marxist after her aristocratic parents prohibited her from marrying a man she met at university, an engineering student of modest means. In the society we are giving birth to, everyone is free to pursue his deepest passions and to make use of his full potential, with no noble birthright standing in between him and his vision.
Does this sound absurd to you? Over the top? Ridiculously optimistic? Well consider this: We have already gotten rid of the aristocracy. Western civilization used to be ruled by a hereditary caste that had complete control over society. The mechanization of agriculture in the 19th century and the abolition of the corn laws led to the demise of the aristocracies. The status quo could simply not be maintained. The concept of a republic, a nation not ruled by a king, was once utterly absurd. Books about the future written in the 18th century, like Samuel Madden's "Memoirs of the Twentieth Century", feature tall tales about religious theocracies in Italy and absolute monarchies in France. What none of them anticipated is that the kind of authoritarian systems they were familiar with could not sustain itself under modern conditions. It seemed as absurd to them that people could be ruled by anything other than inbred aristocrats, as it seems to you when I suggest to you that the concept of wealth itself is in the process of being rendered obsolete.
Eventually we will develop a form of society, where money and financial transactions themselves are an outdated nuisance, an inefficiency. Consider this: You're traveling by train and find out that you don't have a public transport card. As a result, the automated gates that stay closed unless you check in with a card won't open for you. You're hesitant to jump over them, because a camera records anyone who tries to sneak in. You walk to a machine that allows you to buy a card, then you charge the card with money and check in at the gates before entering the train.
Upon entering the train, you notice a man walks around who is tasked with ensuring that everyone bought a card. This is his job, his raison d'être. After the train arrives at its destination, you walk out, forget to check out and hurry back home, here you realize that you forgot to check out and money was automatically deducted from your account. You call the train company, wait ten minutes before someone picks up the phone and ask the lady on the other side of the line to send back the money that was excessively deducted from your card because you failed to check out. Does this sound like an efficient society to you?
Consider a simple fact: In most of Western civilization, we house the homeless and provide them medical care because it's cheaper than to have emaciated people wander around in shopping malls who scare off the tourists, steal bicycles and spread tuberculosis. People find themselves wealthier, by sharing some of their wealth with those who are worst off. It's a more efficient manner of running society, that happens to be in everyone's best interest. Economic inequality, is an economic inefficiency. We live in a non-zero sum game. That is, our current situation is unoptimal, the economy as a whole can benefit from having less economic inequality.
Now hear another plain fact: Your society punitively taxes your income, because you're not benefiting society by working a lot. If you work a 9 to 5 job, as most of us do, you get up, leave your house, get stuck in traffic, sit for 8 hours, which ensures chronic health problems down the line, then head back home during rush hour again. The reason you end up with a similar amount of money if you worked 32 hours, is because it happens to be in everyone's benefit. If you worked eight hours less every week, long-term unemployment would be prevented, because more people would be able to participate in the labor market. You would be able to pick up your kids from school, rather than sending them to daycare. Unless you're a genius, nobody benefits from you "working hard". That's why you're not earning more money from it.
So now you have to ask yourself another question: If society doesn't benefit from your "work", then it's time for you to plan ahead for a future in which it renders your work obsolete. What will you do with your life, when the rat race comes to a stop? What will you do, if the neighbor who watches TV for fourteen hours a day ends up driving the same kind of car as you? If you can't spend your time "getting ahead", then what will you do with your life? That's a question that I want you to ponder.
"Life will lose its meaning" You might say. But that's what all weak men believe who can't think outside of the paradigm they were born into. I live in a society where we no longer fight trench wars with neighboring countries or build colonial empires. My life doesn't feel less meaningful as a consequence. I live in a society where I'm not encouraged to go out and fight in defense of some fundamentalist cult. My life does not feel less meaningful. If I won't have to work to sustain myself, I will quite readily find the means to make my life meaningful. If anything, it would become easier for me to have a meaningful life.
There's always something that can be done. We don't get to it, because we're forced to earn a living for ourselves. All geniuses begin their career with an excessive amount of free time. How could Darwin come up with the theory of evolution? Because he was free to visit the Galapagos islands. Why do we have seaweed that tastes like bacon in the supermarket here in the Netherlands? Because a guy had it served on his platter while he was on vacation abroad. Steve Jobs spent his twenties sleeping on people's floors, smoking pot, dropping acid and visiting guru's in India. People are not creative when they have hoops held in front of them. Innovation happens when people are left free to fool around.
Most people are passionate about something. Even white working class men in early 20th century Western Europe who worked in factories had pigeons they trained and bred for races. When people have free time and more resources than they need to sustain themselves, wonderful things are produced. Those who think we need to be kept busy, have insufficient faith in man's ability to find meaning for himself. If people are nurtered well and treated with kindness, they are able to blossom and begin to improve the world they inhabit.
If people turn into television addicted zombies when their chains are removed, it is because they were left injured by society. Dogs used for medical experiments who have their cages opened are hesitant to step out onto the green grass too. I prefer to look at the examples I know, of people who do understand how to deal with this transition. I think back to a woman I knew, who was granted a small fortune because she survived a plane crash unscathed. She travels across Europe in an old Volkswagen van with her boyfriend, I ran into her at a party held by her friends at a squatted countryside manor. She dances in the night and loves without hesitation and her eyes radiate pure joy. It is clear to me that most people are not ready for the transformations that are upon us. They don't want to live at the end of history. They want to head back to what they knew. But at the end of the day, what you are looking at is nothing to be afraid of. It's just green grass.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 308 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • {{ 911: NOTE: I'm going to give up on transcribing videos so carefully with back and forth with Taskforce. She's too low volume to get autotranscriptions and also too difficult to understand in some cases, and both of you talk very quickly so I can't type it up, sorry. I just can't do it. You produce too much time of video. I might just pick out unique entities and list them in these long live videos, since that's what we're after }}
  • Day 175.1 Cohen-Pinchuk Raid Just Gives Up More Clinton Oligarchs - YouTube
    • It's day 175
    • And Daily Caller gets credit for being the first alternative media site to be first out with a real reason for the raid on Trump's lawyer's office Michael Cohen's office
    • And that is to try to dig up dirt on Trump
    • This is the hundred and fifty thousand dollar donation to Trump's charity
    • And of course it ignores the millions of this Ukrainian oligarch's contributions to the Clinton Foundation, which is the same MO that we've seen over and over:
    • Accuse someone else of what you did only make sure that there is at least some shred of evidence {{ Party of Projection }}
    • And this is going to be the key from here on in
    • And thank God Bob Mueller keeps exposing Hillary's Ukrainians and Hillary's Russians
    • And Bob Mueller is actually doing a good job of not only exposing Hillary's Russians and Hillary's oligarchs and Ukrainian oligarchs, but also they're hacking teams, and also [exposing] the MO of using hacking teams to steal money for these oligarchs
    • So this is the gift that keeps on giving with Mueller
    • Now, admittedly he's doing it by accident
    • But in no way do we want to stop Bob Mueller from doing what he's doing
    • Now, there's other folks that said isn't this CrowdStrike really covering their hacking teams?
    • Crowdstrikes hacking teams are called the "Bears"
    • There's different hacking teams usually in teams of 12
    • The Cozy Bears [are] maybe the Awans
    • The Fancy Bears maybe Suschin
    • And there's about six hacking teams at that Trump just threw out of the country is
    • Were they the hacking teams of these millionaires?
    • Is Trump gonna go after all the millionaires and all the millionaires hacking teams?
    • We don't really know that yet
    • But what I did was I put together a quick playlist for all these different entities
    • So that people could get up to speed on who these different entities and aking teams are
    • Or just do a quick refresher
    • So if you don't remember Victor Pinchuk
    • And the Brooklyn Nets etc there's a quick playlist there if you don't remember CrowdStrike and they're role in the DNC
    • And their role really through this the last almost well let's see 20 years either as a corporation or as a loose confederation in cabal inside the FBI, then you have that
    • And then of course Deripaska will add other ones as they come along
    • Friedman certainly will come along
    • Pinchuk will certainly come along etc as well as
    • Now, we also can kind of do threads of playlists through all the different videos we've done with the NGA and different departments
    • And Deep State actors that the that these players that this kind of McCabe Brennan cabal used to destroy people, either through surveillance or what have you
    • And I've created playlists for them
    • Of course there's an Epstein playlist
    • PDD-62 is this idea of using surveillance to crush people
    • So there I created a playlist there
    • EB-5 is the way of getting resources into the country, to man your surveillance etc
    • And then you can go all the way down here to even Uranium One etc
    • To understand how machinations of these criminal actors go
    • And finally I would say there's some ugly attacks yesterday from other YouTube channels as well as other folks that potentially are related to me
    • And all I would say there is did we expect any different?
    • Do we expect that these these conspirators, this Brennan McCabe cabal wouldn't have actors and a voice
    • And actress to act out what they've actually already said in private
    • That they've already said it in in writing to destroy the careers of FBI agents...
    • The ugly attack against Robyn Gritz yesterday was really nothing more than giving voice and action towhat McCabe has already done to Robyn Gritz administratively
    • So it is ugly as it was at least we all saw it for the ugliness that it was
    • And it really was almost a complete recapitulation of Andrew McCabe's actions toward Robyn Gritz
  • Day 175.2 Atlantic Council - What Can Our Crowdstrike Bears Hack For You Today? - YouTube
    • It's day 175
    • And this is part two
    • And a lot of people say Oh George you're trying to be this white knight--rushing to every damsel in distress that needs help
    • Robyn Grit and others--all the female reporters in in Turkey
    • And Syria with Serena Shim, and Shiba Gardi and Vanessa Beeley--Eva Bartlet etc
    • well I'm going to be fair
    • And even-handed today to talk about Irina Chalupa one of the key conspirators she's a woman from the Ukraine, or the key conspirators in the Trump Russia narrative
    • Her sister--if it really is her sister--Alexander Chalupa who is a operative for the DNC
    • She's the one who keeps dropping the Chalupas in Obama's lap
    • Saying oh by the way Mr. president were full flight into and surveillance campaign
    • Do you want us to go public with it and leak it to the press, or do you want to sign off on it?
    • And so your choice is basically a John Brennan embarrasses your administration with yet another leak or you can go ahead and sign this paper here on August 29 2016 Mr. president
    • This has been Brennan and a Clapper and Hayden used these women over and over
    • Again, to do their dirty work they hide behind them
    • They're cowards of course, so they make the women be the brave ones
    • Here's Evelyn Farkas
    • Again, yet another apparatchik among us in the State Department
    • And Department of Defense that wants Trump investigated
    • She was the foremost fixer if you will in Ukraine
    • And these folks all know each other well from the Atlantic Council
    • So here she is Evelyn Farkas she may have remember herself uh outing herself on MSNBC saying hey I'm one of the key conspirators in the Russia-Trump hoax
    • So you keep going here Susan Samantha Power
    • Of course Cass Sunstein sends her in
    • The 260 different on maskings in a breathtakingly short period of time: two months
    • Evelyn Farkas was the one who said let's get as much as we can, dirt as we can, as fast as we can, let's collect it all
    • So rou literally everyone wearing wingtips in Washington got in in New York anybody, associated with Trump, or Trump's babysitter's: were all tapped
    • This is going to be the most embarrassing of that in our country's history
    • It's going to make water well in the words of calls from this is 30 water gates I think it's more
    • But FBI director Kallstrom may it hit it on the head this is 30 watergates
    • But what I like to do is drill down, and say what unites all these folks?
    • Where do they all meet?
    • They all meet in Washington DC over 15 on 15th Street not far off Pennsylvania Avenue at a place called the Atlantic Council
    • And the International Advisory Group to the Atlantic Council is where I always go when I want to get the dirt
    • Here's Viktor Pinchuk here he is making oil deals he was a member of the Ukrainian Parliament
    • But he's a always giving bribes $100,000 bribe $250,000 bribes
    • And it's rinsed through the Atlantic Council
    • Now, Rupert Murdoch's office is oh it's also on that council
    • And also on that Advisory Board
    • His office just got raided
    • Is that why they raided?
    • It is it really CrowdStrike trying to clean up the mess it's a really crowd strike trying to strike the crowd yet again?
    • Here's Ernie Moniz for us to part of energy some people call him earnest money money Tom onna ties
    • I think Eric Shinseki of VA a lot of folks go into the Democratic positions
    • Here of courses Hagel going into deep DoD Greenberg
    • I'm sure that's a person that's related to Mr. Greenberg of are good friends of microloan Fame down in Asia
    • So if you go through here it's just really
    • Here's Edelman the PR firm that kind of destroys different groups with it's sort of a Fusion GPS a domestic Fusion GPS
    • I think the pipelines was the last time they really got involved
    • But basically these groups are adept at destroying opposition political opposition, destroying people, much as Fusion GPS does all over the world
    • And of course here you've got general Clapper on this board
    • Now, you're gonna have a lot of influence George Soros
    • And all the other SEIU Beetles
    • And of course Carl Bildt
    • Here's our Carl Bildt organizing the invasion sort of a MAVNI for Europe sort of bringing in all these operatives these trained Military Intelligence operatives gangs if you will or trained trained Gladio teams into Europe
    • So there's Carl Bildt
    • Everything that you would want on one on one team to put it all together
    • This is the list of people buying pay-to-play overseas from the US State Department
    • And of course it wouldn't be complete without Madeleine Albright
    • And her shadow Secretary of State which is Hillary Clinton
  • Day 175.3. Task Force Sources McCabe Home in Chappaqua Four Months Before MSM - YouTube
    • The orientation is locked
    • So you'll have to see more of me
    • And less of Chicago good morning Chicago
    • So obviously we're downtown
    • And we had some big successes this morning
    • Task Force has a right to claim big success
    • The Thomas Paine article is out
    • (Rahm? Rahm? It looked like Rahm my hip we have the nurse's outfit on again.)
    • (I do have the Bitcoin we're gonna go down to Daley Plaza we're gonna try to get him to Bitcoin I sure hope he's there)
    • So Thomas Paine is out with a big story today about the two decades well actually a three decade relationship between Hillary Clinton and McCabe
    • But this one is--oh by the way look at my look at my t-shirt "spy ring in Congress"
    • This is made by Bernie Bridges
    • And Bernie Bridges told me this morning she's taking all proceeds of anything that she sells and donating it to someone you know and love
    • So anyway hey everybody
    • So if you haven't heard the big news today, the story of that Task Force did and we did
    • But Task Force found it
    • I did a story December 2nd 2017 about Andrew McCabe living right down the street from Hillary Clinton
    • I published photographs
    • I said I don't think Andy actually lived there much
    • I think was the spy house it was the hacking house to defraud HEY
    • Defraud or scare the living bejesus out of different people in New York
    • Threaten them with SEC action in order to take their businesses away from them
    • Or they could use soft power
    • Soft power is getting Hillary Clinton a campaign contribution
    • This is for Senate!
    • This is for Senate
    • 1998
    • The house was in Chappaqua in 1998 you can read Thomas Paine's article about that four months later now
    • Now, it has come to his fact-checking network of FBI folks
    • And X FBI folks there's a network folks
    • Like I said way back when there's a network, and it's real
    • And now, when people see this corruption for what it really is that this has been
    • And again, Thomas Paine said three decades
    • If you go back three decades I still say Andy was the one who went into the evidence cage for the going all the way back 1996
    • I want to say for the Oklahoma City bombing investigation
    • I believe the current ODNI chief is Dan Coates
    • I believe he was the running now
    • The Congressional committees on that they had reprisals against Dan Coates
    • But you're gonna find Andy was a guy who went into the evidence cage
    • I'm gotta say 1997 there was a there was an FBI whistleblower at the time
    • And I can't remember his name
    • But I printed several times when I do if you go to my PDD 62 playlist it's in there I list all the whistleblowers over
    • And over when I list the PDD 62 documentation
    • So if you want to go there you can find it I'm gonna do a lot more playlists because there are there are
    • So many gems like this which just totally blow up the narrative
    • And I'm talking about taking down the whole narrative, with just one fact
    • Hey they've known each other and been neighbors for two decades
    • Jill McCabe as well living right there
    • And Andy didn't disclose it
    • And he did not disclose right James Comey put out you got to get it now, because it is going to get taken down from from Twitter
    • The one ninety know this isn't the one ninety these aren't the one hundred ninety whistleblowers
    • This is the this is Andy McCabe buying a home in Chappaqua just down the street
    • It's got all kinds of cables running out of it
    • I said this this is hacking team hacking team hacking team
    • Was that where the Awans started? We don't know
    • WWas that where Suschin and the fancy bear started?
    • We don't know, but we now know that I told four new viewers they probably don't remember me talking about when I worked at McAfee
    • Or we were taking we were a company taken over by McAfee--Network General I worked there in 1999
    • And there was a hacking team of 12
    • Russians from Moscow
    • They worked in the weapons they worked in cyber weapons in Moscow
    • Now, I've talked about this a lot
    • People have forgotten it
    • But go back I'll have to do I have a CrowdStrike playlist--you can watch kind of going back all the way
    • But I said these guys are they're making viruses! in order to sell antivirus software, at the end of every quarter!
    • It was a criminal activity
    • Bill Larson was a CEO
    • Bill I'm calling you out as a criminal!
    • I reported a channel stuffing at the end of quarter
    • I got nice I got set up real nice for that
    • That's 1999 that was the first team of 12
    • Now, I don't know if there was teams of 12 before that or teams of 12 after that well there obviously was a lot of teams of 12 after that
    • Trump just kicked six teams of 12 out
    • But getting back to the McCabe we don't know if the hacking team was there I don't think it was a nice enough house to be honest with you--you got to talk really loud though because that the bus is that I know I mean Chappaqua is a very small community
    • And I know it's in a community of like 1,400
    • And it's something like you have to look at true pundit's article this ago 1,400 kind of elite community a mile from Hillary Clinton's house her house is probably very nice I'm assuming
    • So I don't know I know he's sold or resold
    • And refinancet it also in 2013 I have those documents and
    • So there I don't know the condition of that house or its value
    • I know what he sold and resold it for
    • I don't know what that money from 1998 to 2013 what happened during that time
    • G: the timing to me makes sense to having a hacking team house like at Awan type house for the run-up to Senate
    • And of course going up against Joe John F Kennedy John F Kennedy jr. right that's why she they move to chat they John house in Chappaqua to specifically establish residency what you have to have to run for Senate
    • She was the first lady John F Kennedy jr. was running as that New York Senator
    • And they bought a house in Chappaqua to run against him
    • And prevent him from winning that seat
    • And then that's when his plane somehow fell from the sky
    • G: right right
    • And the reason why he sold it in 2011 to a Burgess to its 2013 to purchase to a Burgess removed from the database well it's that's alright it's it's still out there the story is still out there Peter purchase
    • But it mister NBC CBS or whatever
    • And he's--NOC buddies right I don't want to say any did the we had anything to do with--JFK jr. by the way I don't want to say that I just said few Task Force just talking about timing
    • But what we do know is
    • And I'm sorry about the portrait here I wanted the landscape
    • So you can see Chicago not well I guess you get to see spy ring in Congress
    • But the patterns the patterns the modus operandi is what's important here the hacking teams of 12 the safe houses
    • The thousands of wires running out
    • The removable hard drives the thumb drives
    • All this stuff was was worked out in the Senate campaign way before they ever got to Washington
    • Then they sell the house after Hillary's in the Senate twice for the run up for the presidency
    • She doesn't want to run for Senate
    • Again, she wants to be president
    • So they sell the house in 2013 to Burgess
    • And cash out--and some NOC fund, some CIA NOC fund caches Burgess out
    • And then they come to Washington
    • So it that's a big story today
    • And that's a huge story
    • And we got to do more playlists that pick up a lot more of Jenny's stuff a lot more Taskforce stuff--the problem is is I got used to introducing you by your fake name to different people and
    • Now, I got
    • Now, I've got the bug
    • Now, I got the other fake name
    • So there you go
    • So anyway there's lots of stuff
    • So we're gonna have to go through
    • And we did the Deripaska I did the Deripaska that's the derringer coming out of the pasta
    • We all these guys all these guys go back to Prokhorov
    • Pinchuk
    • Deripaska
    • The original 12 Andy Andy comrades running Kompromat all go together
    • So Prokhorov was the guy who was going to launder the money through the sports teams
    • Pinchuk was the more the oil energy kind of guy
    • They did minerals through Deripaska through ???
    • They had they had a funnel for all the drug for weapons business they had
    • And their selling of the secrets they had funnels for all the different ones all the different Russians represented different money laundering funnels
    • Do you want to add to that?
    • TF: I just want to give a shout-out to Thomas Paine
    • And True Pundit because it's amazing article people should try to find in read
    • And we will read retweeted out he's just that Thomas Paine
    • And true
    • But it is great great investigative work
    • And people really need to follow that
    • So yeah that is a good shot
    • And he did say something about the attorneys
    • I mean the Inspector General living in that neighborhood
    • And I didn't think Horowitz lived in that neighborhood
    • The Inspector General has ER Doc's so
    • Now, how does the Inspector General leave this out Comey sent out a blanket email to all the FBI saying there's no conflict of interest here in McCabes
    • And know how to Clinton's right no conflict of interest oh well I forgot to mention my kid mows their yard
    • And we're we're close enough to--borrow cups of sugar from each other, you what I'm talking about sugar--
    • And Jill McCabe's a doctor there I don't know she brings sugar to the party
    • I'm not saying she seems like a very nice woman
    • She seems like a very nice woman caught in a horrible horrible thing
    • And Hillary it's always the same thing
    • Hillary always takes it to the next level there are no limits for Hillary
    • McCain stopped at dirty weapons
    • Comey stopped at dirty weapons
    • Hillary does not stop at anything to win she does not stop at anything
    • So we're gonna go down we're gonna try to get Rahm
    • And we'll talk about the network of people she built in the United States with the help of Andy to sell to get this Bitcoin
    • We'll talk about that in a little bit--that's gonna come out
    • But for right now, we got to get Rahm his Bitcoin we'll see you a little bit
  • Day 175.4. Rahm-Com - YouTube
    • Orientation is locked again, oh well
    • well here we are sorry about the portrait orientation
    • We've got the Picasso oh there you can obviously see that they made modifications to the back part of it
    • They've spring-loaded all the wiring
    • And they've made the law advance started up here now,
    • And I'm here with Task Force the band everyone asked what the heck did he get all that Bitcoin?
    • Well if you kind of line all this stuff up
    • 1998 late 98 when the house is bought, when Andy McKay buys the Chappaqua house right right
    • And I'll try to get more of Rahm in here and less of a spy ring in Congress is when all this stuff happens
    • You have a hacking team that goes into Chappaqua to extort money which we will be coming out and talking about
    • But it's the group out in the Long Island house for the SEC
    • I was in New York for a couple of years
    • And we had I had a building I was in a building where the SEC enforcement division was just out of coincidence
    • And there so we had a hacking team of 12 up there
    • Then we had a happy team go into Congress right about the same time right
    • we had Rahm Emanuel go into Congress in 1999
    • We had Anthony Weiner going to Congress in 1999
    • And it kind of became the foundation of this let's just call it the "Bitcoin kids"
    • The Bitcoin kids
    • This is before Bitcoin
    • But I'm just saying a lot of times when you get money from illegal operations beyond the dark weapons beyond even things that have the color-of-law, you need to hide it in into things like Bitcoin
    • So I'm gonna just set the stage here for for why things happen the way they did
    • Hillary moves to the Senate in 2002
    • TF: right well after Bill and Hillary leaving the White House
    • Number one Rahm Emanuel was part of Bill Clinton's White House
    • So people need to remember that way back
    • As was Podesta--they were both inside the White House very close very close and
    • So Hillary then decides to she's going to run for Senator, simultaneously as she's leaving as first lady
    • So she needs to establish residency in order to represent, you have to establish residency
    • So they buy the house in Chappaqua we're in the same year were ending McCabe is first located in Chappaqua at a house down the road
    • JFK jr. was running in that Senate position
    • And that New York's in a position Hillary decides to buy house now, and she would have to explain the reasons why she chose there
    • But she chose there to run in that district to run against JFK jr.
    • We all know what happened I don't know I'm not getting into all that
    • But we all know what happened to JFK jr.
    • And in that election, when JFK jr. unfortunately passed away, Hillary Clinton won that Senate seat
    • And became on the Senate Armed Services right out of the White House
    • Now, do you think the Chappaqua house could have been a reminder of like Chappaquiddick, because they do sound so similar
    • Like, remember what happened your brother at Chappaquiddick?
    • John-John, right you might want to sit this one out?
    • I mean maybe there's a little bit of a--a little bit of a WINK threat there shuttle going on subtlety's?
    • Well we do know that we did a story about this December 2nd 2017
    • And there was a fire at the Chappaqua house, right?
    • About a day or two later
    • I remember at the Hillary's chef Hillary's Chappaqua house
    • We did the story of December 2nd and that which is breaking big now
    • And there was a fire right at her house right maybe a day later yeah maybe a day later
    • So you could check the records for when there was a fire at the Chappaqua house
    • Now, it just so happens I when I went to Chappaqua with a thumb drive, this is gonna start getting more relevant
    • I hope we weren't on camera that whole time?
  • Day 175.5. Chicago RiverWalk Live With Task Force - YouTube
    • {{ RAW transcript only with autoreplacements }}
    • You're not familiar with Chicago you've kind of got the bridges in a little bit higher level
    • And then just on the other side of this wall here is where Bernie Bridges works with all of our homeless quite a bit of homeless just right here on the other side Bernie Bridges is out on her bridge on the Kennedy today talking about working with the spy ring in Congress
    • So we've got that a spy ringin Congress shirt Bernie Bridges will sell you a spy ring in Congress shirt if you want to inspire a in Congress shirt Bernie Bridges is your girl
    • So here we are with Task Force I know it's gonna be a little bit windy down here by the river
    • But it's worth it if you're over here Task Force I think we're good
    • And then you can speak right into the microphone here
    • So let's just go through a couple of the well first of all congratulations on your success today today I know how it feels to be well I don't be humble I know how it feels to be in the middle of a story
    • And then when this story goes big this happen with me with a hard drives I think you're having your hard drives moment--where you go for 200 days people don't believe you don't believe you from for you as a little bit shorter is about four months
    • But then vindication came today when people did discover that Andy did have a house of Chapel right yeah I think--just doing putting all the research in there's a lot of documents
    • And stuff that you're trying to weed out
    • And figure out what's most important
    • And you stumble upon something like that
    • And you tried it I be I've tweeted it I sent it I to about a thousand different people how many people I sent it directly into people inside Washington people don't believe it could be possible
    • And then when it breaks something big it's like just it works--in the ends the research pays off
    • And the most important part is the truth that's what we're all about
    • So
    • And she's very humble about it
    • And doesn't want it wants the credit Thomas Paine really for verification because it's really those FBI agents that have retired that want the best for the FBI that really do kind of make the story because they verify it they sure that the truth is going out there
    • And it kind of as that final fact check not not from just--regular people who--who are suppressed kids who want to get to the next self-congratulatory oh by the way we're right under Trump Tower here not just those kids
    • But real real Intelligence service professionals who can say yes this is exactly what happened
    • And this is I mean they're trying to bury it already right they're trying to bury the story already things like that you know
    • Again, I just I give a shout out to Thomas paper being up there
    • But also to Robyn Gritz
    • And him
    • Again, I'm gonna mention her name she's the one that stood has stood up against the ending McCabe we have a spokesman out there I hate spokesman yeah seems like fund me
    • And support her
    • And in her battle as she she's taking on the system Thomas Paine's another guy that's been a part of that
    • And I wanted to say about Robin I mean she's not gonna be like oh I'm gonna go away she's gonna be a part of the solution--she's gonna
    • And I don't want to say too much more on that
    • So let's go to the bombing most people don't know we are have a raging bombing campaign right
    • Now, they think there's Trump sitting on his hands right well there were Navy Navy fighter jets whatever sins
    • And they bombed a bunch of what was originally called Taliban synthetic labs which is basically where you're--taking the opiates
    • And processing them in those areas
    • And then it's kind of come out more honest is this Western Afghanistan or Eastern
    • I'm not exact locations
    • But it's coming out--more
    • And more really running those labs
    • And where is that stuff coming from it it's Catholics in action right the damn Catholics
    • Again, are running these drug labs in Pakistan would create a lab wait I think it's the I think it's the cars International League right cars Internet Inc has got I did not realize they had the resources to create labs--that's quite amazing so
    • Now, do you think Trump will just keep the bombing campaign going while he's kind of keeping the world in suspense that's about what he's gonna do on the other yeah I don't I don't know I think that was--trunks one of his main things was opiate the opiate--the problem in here in this country
    • And this is a big big big part of the story that people don't understand of how the opiates where they're coming from how its being synthesized in different labs
    • And where that's occurring
    • And why he's moms might be dropping on the labs to stop the opiates from coming in
    • And killing American people
    • And that's been
    • And that's been really covered up I mean we really haven't had a lot of coverage on that to be honest you really have to dig there are some like Navy Times
    • And people I mean it's hard to send kids--up in in to war
    • And the moms are all like I don't know
    • And them grandmothers
    • And the dads
    • And the brothers
    • And everything it's hard not to be honest--this gonna show up there's a lot of satellites up there you're gonna see the bombing and
    • So anyway I'm just seeing that comments for the first time they're close enough
    • So yeah well we'll try to get the comments as we go
    • So a couple other stories what do you want to cover a couple of other stories that seem to come to mind the only other thing I would say is that we didn't we try to cover earlier we got to we didn't get a chance to win load about the soldier we were out in daily square
    • And yeah
    • And a soldier who has served his country in Afghanistan just to hear on a patriot who has followed George from the first days came up
    • And said hey scrunchie recognized George
    • And we got a chance to shake his hand or he knew you to though you knew Task Force yeah I knew
    • So yeah
    • So it was a great chance to meet him
    • And he asked him what we could do better what would be most helpful
    • And he said you need to have a Chicago whistle doe whistle blower Sunday like you do in DC because they're supporters they want to talk so
    • Now, I am just quite shocked that we have not had a ROM siren or ambulance a lot of people are calling it the Romulans we have not had a Romulans since we've been down here
    • Now, roms got to get out of the city at some point doesn't he I mean he's you think it'll be my fire truck--with that booster seat or do you think it'll be a rambling
    • So Romulus probably gonna be lots of diversions right you might have a Romulus going one way with a fire truck
    • And a booster seat going another way and--all different diversions
    • So no one can really follow that yeah rom worked pretty close to state
    • And lake
    • So if you want to try to get the Bitcoin we survive we're still are
    • Now, we
    • Now, we hear Mark Zuckerberg may be delivering a lot of Bitcoin
    • But in hand delivering a lot of Bitcoin in Congress today what is your take on you watch a little bit of the testimony what should I watch the testimony mostly yesterday that on the senate
    • And my take was first of all that when they did it's the statistics of how many of the people questioning mark zuckerberg had actually taken cash for more exact reverse our Facebook's company it's a little hard to question
    • And fire off appropriate questions
    • And you can look at Thomas Paine's article on that
    • And fire off tough questions about what's happening with data in the selling off of data when you're actually taking money from the company yeah I think it was like 30 or 40 Senators had taken
    • And almost all that sherry had taken money from him
    • And a like big chunk some money like half a million dollar chunks right before he goes on to the Senate testimony as like they're not even separating pay-to-play with the conjunction to just pay play pay play--it's almost like one word
    • Now, in Washington
    • But I'm kind of glad I'm out of Washington to be honest with you yeah it's actually wonderful to be out here with the people that this is these are the great people great American patriots whether they're veterans or bernie bridges or just--people that are trying to do what's right by our country
    • And get it back to the rule of law
    • And ethics
    • And morality at all
    • Now, now the big news is we knocked out we knocked Paul Ryan of the he's retiring I think he knows the Racine story's coming we're still gonna do the Racine story Paul because we get it's not it's bigger than you
    • But Paul nellen
    • Now, becomes the front-runner in that race s
    • So I think our time in Milwaukee was well spent what are your thoughts on on Paul Ryan yeah well I think it's a little it's probably shocking everyone that he's deciding to resign not shocking to me
    • So are you ready to drop your connections between Paul Ryan
    • And Andy McCabe yet or no no I think we're gonna go to Racine
    • And we're gonna do some investigating there information that we have that may be the ghost signal to start sending right ramya lenses in all directions that may be your go signal go ahead I'm sorry
    • So yeah I just think we're--we're gonna go to spend some time in Racine
    • And tell some stories that need to be cooked cold or gay at least get some information out there that people can start doing some research because racing is a big important part of what's going on in our country well just like Hull House are my objective isn't to make any judgments it's just to go to the places--film around it show the metadata
    • And then people come up with all kinds of stuff
    • Now, your whole house is gonna be moved oh oh
    • we don't know that for sure
    • So all right well we're gonna leave that
    • So what other news you want to cover there's probably a couple more Senators a couple more Congressmen then I won't be running for reelection seems like a lot of people just serve at the Blues
    • But--not wanting to run for reelection
    • And I'm gonna it's going to be very curious to find out their reasoning which I think will come out at a later date
    • And time about why they chose or whereas yeah
    • So I'm gonna take questions here for a second as our as our ACOG oh cab goes by our Chicago water taxi--I want to see a little bit about--Bobby Rush Bobby Rush was commenting with Mark Zuckerberg
    • And we've been in a couple of different Senate meetings where people will mention COINTELPRO
    • And they'll say Oh COINTELPRO
    • And then
    • And we don't run that anymore
    • And we always have a chuckle on that one that's what Hillary restarted with Andy McCabe in 1998 you're gonna find that this whole process that we've been talking about McCabe maybe not rahm emanuel because he comes in a little bit later
    • But the whole thing with p tech
    • And the whole thing with mueller was to cycle up Sibel Edmonds is reporting a lot on this I don't know why anybody else doesn't
    • But to cycle up
    • And restart COINTELPRO much much more surveillance much more surveillance from the sky that's our NGA that's why we talk
    • So much about the NGA that's why the Larry Clayman suit for me that's why we created a playlist for an GA because it's not only about the metadata of you walking of you making a phone call while you're walking up
    • And down Riverwalk
    • But it's actually geo-locating you here
    • And then being able to go back with a d-wave type computer a quantum type computer
    • And actually replay your life replay your life see where you error every minute of the day
    • Now, I believe in the criminal justice information system
    • And that's in Clarksburg Tennessee that's run by a guy named Burrell who was in the Washington field office the counter-intel office with all of his friends like Shawn Henry
    • And Adrian Hawkins
    • And of course Andy McCabe
    • And Bill Priestap here in Chicago they actually have a d-wave
    • And they can reconstruct any put person walking along here
    • And their time
    • So all murders could be solved today they just don't want to let on that they have this time capability Burrell's company is called temporal data systems
    • So that's that's what it's all about
    • So anyway I'm gonna take a few questions here as we go
    • And if you can think of any other news items what am I aware of do all caps what am I aware of somebody has said is somebody's history temporal data systems yes that's Burrell's company we have a spokesman for a McCabe that we normally see at this point along the way who's using every possible Federal agency to point out the fact that I was correct with the diplomatic cover the diplomatic containers shipping their Uranium games Uranium One as well as other games [Music] Silva's
    • So I think that maybe eat it we I normally can expound a little bit more

Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself / Be The Change You Wish To See In The Crypto World

I have been here quite a very long time.
Sitting idly by.
I played here once, long ago.
The turmoil, however, took its toll.
The community was silenced and relocated along a trail of tears.
Nobody is left to tip me beers.
As far as I can see there are three main groups of contributors at /reddcoin these days:
None of which contribute anything positive.
The Believers have what has recently been referred to as "Blind Faith." While their intentions are admirable, this provides no actual firm ground for growth of the community. Newcomers are given very little factual information and see little action. Mostly just wet dreams. The majority of The Believers continuously fail take action to ensure the success of their beloved coin. They preach and wait. Wait for the good word to spread to the savages. Wait for the return of the coins only begotten dev. The most devastating aspect of The Believers is the level to which they are willing to oppress, belittle, and attack others. While they uphold themselves to be righteous and true, they possess the same single flaw that has been so devastating throughout the history of mankind: Their truths are the only truths. There is no other way. They judge others for their lack of belief. They are aggressive and unforgiving. The majority of contributors at /reddcoin fall into this category.
The Doubtful are few and far between. The Doubtful often become doubtful based solely upon the extravagant claims and actions of The Believers. The Doubtful seek scientific evidence to support the claims of The Believers. The Believers, unable to provide this evidence, cling to their supreme beliefs and tear apart The Doubtful. The Believers preach that doubt is unacceptable. The Believers preach The Doubtful to be wrong. The Believers down-vote. They gang up upon and bully The Doubtful. They label The Doubtful as Naysayers and burn them at the stake.
The Naysayers are dedicated to unmasking the lies and shining light upon the scam at hand. They say only negative. They too often have no factual evidence to support their claims. The supporting evidence of the Naysayers is often the lack thereof. Reddcoin has in terms of the big picture, to anyone outside of this bubble, been a total failure. It flopped. Reddcoin made broad outrageous claims of future possibilities and never did anything to live up to them. The Naysayers recognize that the Reddcoin community has continuously failed to act. The Naysayers recognize that the Reddcoin community, is actually rather non-existent. Rarely will you find Naysayers here. Naysayers can be found when you mention Reddcoin at /Bitcoin or /Cryptocurrency. Naysayers were present at /Reddcoin after the great pump and dump of 2014. They rarely post here. Most of those that are labeled as Naysayers, are actually just Doubtful.
What makes a successful endeavor? Can an endeavor ever truly succeed solely with Believers, Doubtful, and Naysayers? Absolutely Not! A successful endeavor requires Actors: Those willing to take action to support their beliefs.
/Reddcoin has since the beginning been devastating short on Actors. Some made games and sites that integrated Redd. Even an API. But the actions of the actors are not enough without the support of the community. In order for a coin to become popular it needs to be used. It needs to be promoted. Believers, if they were actors, would be tipping dozens a times a day on Twitter, Twitch, and Reddit. Instead, they sit back and wait for a man in the sky to some day solve all their problems. Apparently only 2-3 people out of 6.9 Billion are capable of contributing to this project. I would have thought there to be dozens, hundreds, even tens of thousands of coders out there that would love to contribute to this project. The problem is, nobody has ever taken any action to make them aware of it. Do any of you ever post at /webdev or /javascript or any of the dozens of subreddits where you could recruit new devs? Nobody is out there tipping left and right so that some programmer in Timbukto or blockchain mastermind at /bitcoin will see and want to hop on board. How often do you join and work together to achieve common goals? Organized tipping was suggested a year ago. Very few joined in. Recently the Lunar New Year Red Envelope suggestion went overlooked while OKCoin did the same thing and gave away $1,500,000 to bring front page headlines to their project. When /MillionaireMakers announced the recent winner a whopping 5 of you contributed? And you wonder why you project the image of a dead coin.
The link shared recently about voting for Reddcoin is a prime example of your continual failure. It would give Reddcoin the opportunity to be accepted by CoinPayments.net and easily integrated into any website. This idea has been suggested in 7 Different /Reddcoin Posts over the past year. (1)(2) (3)(4) (5) (6)(7) and only one person has ever bothered to vote?
I'll admit that paying to get Reddcoin added seems like extortion. However, it is simply the price that needs to be paid to be successful in this business. They gave you the opportunity to be added for free and you only responded with downvotes
You said things like:
To which I respond:
I'm not saying CoinPayments would solve all your problems. Not even close. But it's a step in the right direction. You, the community, have continuously failed to support your coin. You sure do bicker. That's about it. It's rare than anything constructive is ever posted here. The devs did this coin a great disservice when they encouraged everyone to abandon reddit and allowed bots to hijack and redirect every thread to their own .org. /Reddcoin is dead!
It doesn't have to be. You could contribute more than overwhelmingly optimistic dreams of the future. You could do better than ganging up on The Doubtful.
You could be a subreddit that contains positive contributions with signs of growth. Your current ideological society running solely on Blind Faith is incredibly unattractive to the outside world and is doomed to fail. You all come off like a bunch of rambling idiots.
Today's market correction was well overdue.
The downtrend is very likely to continue.
How long?
That's up to you!
Blind faith alone can not much longer sustain a satoshi higher than 2.
Reddcoin needs more than Believers;
Reddcoin needs Actors too!

Bitcoin is as disruptive of a technology as the Internet was, and it's domination of money is only a matter of time at this point.

I watched the internet disrupt the world. And now I'm watching bitcoin disrupt the world. Both the internet and bitcoin are and were unwanted communication juggernauts. The US supported the infrastructure of the Internet, but even they weren't fully prepared for what freedom of information meant.
The funny thing is, the only people who truly opposed the internet were the ones who faced a loss of power due to it. Newspapers, the RIAA, and others who acted as gatekeepers of information hated the thought they would be replaced with sites like this one. They hated the idea that people would freely share information without them, including news, songs, ideas, etc.
We aren't out of that evolution yet and are still seeing the explosion of this concept. Governments are still reeling from the realities of a full blown information age where they have to astroturf and manipulate information instead of outright controlling it. Companies failed to understand the power of a decentralized protocol, and the organized backlash against bitcoin we are seeing is proof they still don't get it.
Enter bitcoin and cryptocurrency.
I'm not passionate about cryptos because I'm a nutcake or bipolar (or any other buzzword that trolls want to throw around to attack supporters of crypto). I'm passionate about crypto because it is the disruptive technology of the day. You can't fight this. It's exploding in popularity simply because it's better than what we used to have.
The difference is that it disrupts money, not communication.
We saw it happen as we grew up, and we tried to tell the 'adults'. "The internet will change everything! In the future..." and we got a pat on the head and a lecture about tying up the god damn phone lines with bleeping noises.
To be fair, most of us were just trying to download naked women line by line anyway, but we still saw the possibilities and future of the technology.
"I'll wait for bitcoin 2.0"
Just like you're waiting for internet 2.0, right? Consensus and first to market are powerful, especially for decentralized technology. The reason MySpace went the way of the dodo is because it was a centralized system that was replaced by a better centralized system, Facebook. And if you want bitcoin 2.0, we have it already: It's called Dogecoin. Want to wait for bitcoin 3.0?
You need to understand that the first blockchain as a store of value and information won't be replaced. It can be complimented by other crypto, which is why I also believe in Dogecoin, but it won't be replaced any time soon. Every day that blockchain ledger exists it grows more valuable. I recently embedded a poem and declaration in it and that will persist for the rest of time. That's how powerful the blockchain is.
And trolls, haters, and PR firms hired to disrupt bitcoin online would have you believe that in the future it will go to zero. No. It cannot. Math and psychology won't allow that.
It already has too strong of a foothold and its viral nature is causing it to explode like a meme, the same way that other innovations in finance have exploded in popularity. The history of money is clear to me, and should be clear to you:
Trade & Barter -> Money -> Banking -> Interest -> Bonds -> Stocks -> Derivatives -> Cryptocurrency
All roads lead to cryptocurrency, and whether you like it or not, it's coming and it will change everything. You can't fight an idea this strong, and the only solution is to adapt. We learned the hard way we couldn't fight the internet... will those in power really be so stupid this time as well?
Fortunes will rise with the rise of cryptos, same as any other disruptive technology. And I'm going to be there, on board the train as we head to space. I've watched from the sidelines as bitcoin soared and been that hater who said, "This is stupid" but what I really wished deep down was that I hadn't been such a doubter to begin with and had gotten on the train earlier.
Well no more. That's why I'm ferociously pro-crypto now. I studied computer science for four years in college so I know the technology is sound.
