NO PUTIN don't. We need to get people to buy our poker chips and not come back to the casino. We all know no one trusts your local government from printing money and would rather trust the dollar.

Get your hands on some physical silver as well.

Aambrick -4 points ago +3 / -7

No. Copper and Iron. Bronze simply.

Bronze with some Nickle I could see being the actual standard to be honest.

Silver will have its place, but the elites are the ones that stand to get the most from silver. It is, also, the reason why you see a lot of people pushing for it instead of Gold, Copper, or some other type of metal that is much more decentralized.

Copper and Iron together is the basic for Bronze. Bronze enhanced by Nickle would allow it to have a large monetary value over silver for the fact that it can act as a melted metal for every day use just about.

For instance, it can be used to insulate your house from the elements, be able to make a weapon out of it, can convert to shells or ammo(if you got the equipment), can be converted as a soldiering material for quick patches, and the last part is that it will last a long time & can be made in large amounts negating who can control it.

Silver is definitely valued in everything, but has a much more centralized approach until miners and refiners sell it directly to the people without a lot of hoops which allows for very easy tracking(meaning government just got free money whenever they want to make an excuse to steal it). Bronze enhanced by Nickle would have some of the same issues, but to a far, far lesser degree.

Copper and tin make bronze. Iron does it's own thing.

Aambrick 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah I tend to get those two confused. My bad.

I was mainly going along with material that lasts long, and can be applied in both money as well as daily materials so as to use it as a bypass material for the problem at hand.

I remembered there was a bronze alloy that was considered for electronics with around 60% being copper and 5%-7% being Iron.

You can declare war on banking by adopting crypto.

The international banking families that rule the world and are the funders of all this Commie nonsense get their power from the network effects of using their money and them sitting at the spout of that money making machine. Crypto takes that power away from them.

Crypto has some great benefits in generating wealth for an individual in a mid term, but mass adoption and moving to crypto as the primary form of currency is a banker's and the government's wet dream.

The value of the USD is the faith in the security and sovereignty of the US. If the rest of the world doesn't VALUE the USD, then it won't matter. Centralized crypto is an oxymoron to crypto's spirit. Like we already see, the value is based on what people think is secure.

"how are you going to use your bitcoin when the Fed releases it's own crypto and the government makes bitcoin illegal?"

How are you going to [insert ANYTHING] when the government makes it illegal?

Bitcoin serves the purpose. If the government tries to take it away, that is something to deal with when it happens. Same with gold, silver, 2nd amendment related devices, foreign money, cash, etc.

Not going to happen. Hedge funds are already starting to buy massive amounts of BTC now. Once enough Hedge Funds hold strong positions, any action by the corporate government to illegalize it will be impossible.

how are you going to use your bitcoin when the Fed..

BTC was made illegal in China in 2017. That hasn't stopped the Chinese.

My pleasure!

Cryptocurrency is a decentralized form of money powered by a immutable (unchangeable) ledger. Most major cryptocurrencies use Blockchain technology.

Let's get one thing straight here though:

"Hacking" something like Bitcoin or Ethereum successfully requires magic. The magic to somehow steal offline copies of the blockchain, to make everyone monitoring the blockchain somehow not notice, to make miners somehow not notice (good luck trying to do that), to make every single node operator not notice and stop what they're doing, and to somehow manage to hack a satellite.

You could argue that 51% attacks are the most viable way of trying to change the blockchain.. but you'd also have to make people somehow not notice, and just accept a corrupt blockchain.

Is the price of crypto stable? Generally, no, but stabilization can be achieved using coins like DAI, which uses collateralization to stabilize the price.

Is crypto private? Crypto with private blockchains are. Using something like Bitcoin, you're tied to your bitcoin wallet if someone managed to figure out that you own it.

Monero is, as of the current date, untraceable.

Ethereum allows for decentralized finance. Want to trade with no regulation? Use a decentralized exchange. Want to set up decentralized crowdfunds? Sure. Casinos? Yup. Insurance? You bet. Virtually everything interesting in the world of finance can be found & built on smart-contract based cryptocurrencies.

TL;DR Crypto is decentralized and requires magic for you to hack it. Things like the stock market, websites, casinos, exchanges & insurance can be built on the blockchain.

You're aware that unlike banks, you yourself can keep and manage all your funds in an offline environment?

Making shit up on the go are we?

3
Husky 3 points ago +5 / -2

That's an illusion. You can keep your private key offline like putting your password on paper. You aren't actually storing anything offline. You're storing access to something that is copied on everyone else's devices.

You can get sucked in by the technical aspects of how the blockchain works, how the ledger works, how new chunks of transactions get registered. You have been sold on how secure and decentralized it is. You have been sold on how the government has no control over it, banks have no control over it. When have you EVER known either of those entities to sit back and relinquish control?

Every single transaction you make is recorded publicly. Obfuscation is already under legal attack, you have to identify yourself "to help prevent the funding of terrorism." Any exchanges that want to play ball have to get identification, delist problematic currencies.

"Buhbuhbut if businesses accept crypto as payment" then they get blacklisted by whatever the government has adopted as the banker's preferred legal crypto? They get their business license revoked? They get jailed for tax evasion? Same things can happen to exchanges.

Security on the decentralized currencies is predicated on the majority of miners agreeing that the transactions processed as instructed. "It would be impossible for one group to operate more nodes than are already running naturally" would it? Would the central banks not consider it worth their massive investment to seize control of a problematic currency, even just long enough to destroy public trust in it?

The government doesn't have to reduce the number in your wallet to take your money. They can make it worthless simply by flagging it and creating a big enough threat to anyone else for transacting with it.

You do yourself a disservice in assuming you are the smartest person at the table. Don't be disrespectful to others just because they disagree with you and have something different to say. You sound like a damn liberal.

^ this.

The only thing backing the USD is:

  • The threat of violence against nations who deal oil in other currencies (See: Petrodollar currency)
  • The threat of violence against citizens who refuse to pay taxes (in USD)

The monopolization of money and banking is the ultimate pillar on which the modern state rests. In fact, it is probably become the most cherished instrument for increasing state income. For nowhere else can the state make the connection between redistribution-expenditure and exploitation-return more directly, quickly, and securely than by monopolizing money and banking. And nowhere else are the state's schemes less clearly understood than here.

It is also utter bullshit, no single country can go back to the cold standard. The price of gold is determined on the open market and can fluctuate wildly causing havoc to a country that ties it's currency to it.

Unet0xNullPtr 1 point ago +2 / -1

If someone managed to "hack" Bitcoin, they'd either have to control or hack millions of people, reach millions of hardware nodes, cold storage devices & and somehow a satellite...

...and also expect those millions of people operating that infrastructure (especially the miners monitoring everything to make a buck) to not notice anything fishy at all.

One more thing: That person or group of people would also be able to take down critical U.S. infrastructure. So many a nationstate like China could try and do it; that'd only lead to people noticing China's antics and defending against it.

NullifyAndSecede 9 points ago +10 / -1

In the case of central bank digital currencies (CBDC) yes they have full control and that's why they are exploring this option.

In the case of truly decentralized currencies like Bitcoin and Monero no they can't shut you off or seize your assets if you practice good security.

This is why wikileaks was able to maintain funding even after the banks cut them off.

Cryptography is an incredibly powerful tool, and cryptocurrency is built on cryptography.

If the conspiracy theory that the green berets swore an oath to take down the cabal after JFK was assassinated in 1963 is true, then there is a high probability that Satoshi is a US Military program. Prolly not true but fun to think about. If it were true they’d have plenty of bitcoin to back the dollar and plenty to spare as maybe a stimulus gift to working class Americans thereby finishing off the central bank. Far more than a $2000 check. ;)

Quite the opposite. Currencies such as Monero (XMR) offer greater privacy, and in most blockchain systems your wallets are safer than a bank account.

SnowflakeJuice 1 point ago +1 / -0

I don't get the hero worship for Putin. The dictator issue aside, Russia has not done well economicaly under his leadership.

There was a time in the late 1990's up until around 2008 that the Russian economy was booming. Foreign investment was pouring in and Russia was having an Economic Rennaissance.

Then Putin made the same mistake Hugo Chavez made (and something China has been smart enough to avoid). The first step was when he basically took over ownership of Yukos, which was one of the largest public companies in Russia. Screwing it's shareholders in the process.

That put a little chill in investors, but people figured maybe it was a one time deal, and the exposure to foreign investment was minimal.

Then he went and took over Hermitage Capital . The largest foreign investment firm in Russia at the time.Transferring ownership of all the companies assets to a buddy of his.

That all but put a complete stop to foreign investment in Russia. No one is going to invest money if it can dissappear at Putins whim.

Russia has not been the same since, it is essentially a 3rd world economy but growing at the slow pace of a fully mature economy.

Not a fan of Xi Jinping, he is a mass murderer after all, but at least he has the intelligence to know not to shoot himself in the foot.

Case in point, he kidnapped Jack Ma, but he didn't disrupt the activity of his company or it's shareholders .

Putin on the other hand was willing to blow up the whole Russian Economy because of his ego.

You're right about that, it very well could be, but Putin's election records still put him in dictator territory. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have him as my dictator than our current dictator because he is serving his people and not china.

"Putin's election records still put him in dictator territory"

what would that threshold be? And if you look at people he's been running against, most normal people with a brain would vote for Putin than alternative.

Liberalism is trying to take root in Russia, as leftists are trying to destroy the country from within, so it becomes as cucked as your average European nation or even better, falls apart so that it can be picked for natural resources. It is good to see that most normal people see through BS and refuse PC, leftist propaganda, gay "rights" being shoved down their throats etc..

  1. if putin wanted the guy dead by poisoning, he wouldn't have used a cholinesterase inhibitor; there are FAR more deadly compounds you can kill people with, causing them to die LONG before an effective treatment can be administered (and even then, some can't even be treated).

  2. a major reason no country on earth has never deployed a bioweapon since nerve gas was invented is because if one country uses it, they'll have opened a can of worms, leading them to get fucked by those same bioweapons. why would russia risk the use of bioweapons?

  3. why wouldn't russia disappear the guy while he is in russia? why not fake a suicide? why not fake a car crash? why not fake a mass shooter like soros did? why kill him in a way where it is clear he has been murdered?

there is also some debate on whether he was even poisoned in the first place. it could all be a hoax.

Under President Trump, the US practically made it impossible for Iran to use the USD in any real capacity through sanctions that penalized any bank that did business with Iran. And it was damned effective, the EU tried some lame INSTEX attempt to replace the USD-dominated bank transactions -- which flopped.

Russia's clearly on the chopping block, the EU just slapped sanctions on Russia over some minor prison sentence on a dissident (no one sanctioned the US for trying to imprison General Flynn). Not to mention fat, barren suburban American women have been trained for four years to want a war with Russia.

So it isn't surprising they're trying to switch the global reserve currency, they're about to lose access too it anyhow. This is about as "happening" as when China announced their little crypto excursion...that also flopped.

That article is...very poorly written. The comment quoted in it was from two years ago, yet it's dated now, and talks about Putin's comments from his inauguration two years ago.

Considering the site is an Indian one who can't decide if they're a gaming review site or a political site, and the extremely poor writing and "research" of this "article", I think I can safely disregard it, and urge pedes to do so as well.

If the OP had linked directly to the site, I would suspect it's clickbait for that site.

BTW, we've seen these kinds of claims a lot, but it's really hard to stop using the dollar as a reserve currency: you have to be willing to stop having a trade surplus with the U.S., and most countries that have one are addicted to those dollars. Mercantilists don't see to get it, but being a net exporter is not really a good thing, and like being a net importer, it has serious downsides.

I yearn for balanced trade.

Nixon really screwed the pooch getting us of the gold standard. Reagan screwed the pooch not getting us back on it just a decade later. The Republicans in 1999 screwed the pooch by not preserving the budget surplus and extending it.

Trump was the only one who tried to fix this problem. For it they had to get rid of him, and they had to use such crude and destructive methods to do it!

4
tdwinner2020 4 points ago +4 / -0

Well, yes. The age of the dollar as the reserve currency must come to an end, and there's only two ways to do it: a) balance trade first the easy way (tariffs / tax on capital inflows), b) let the new international monetary regime established in crisis balance trade. (b) == pain because it will be very sudden.

Because Trump wanted (a), we now have to end up with (b). Well, also because the stupid deep state and corrupt grifter pols we have all depend on a massive budget deficit for their bennies, they have to put the pedal to the metal on spending, so they have to drive us to ever higher budget and trade deficits and ever higher monetization, and that cannot end well, and it can only end in crisis.

Hitler used Kensian economics and printing of currency backed by bankers to fund his economic revival. Part of the reason for the annexations was that he needed collateral (gold) or to pay back the debt. Hitler captured gold mines and sold them to pay off debts.

Really Hitlers system was copied by FDR and is in use in the USA right now...

Sooo... us gold bugs and PM bugs have noticed that China & Russia were buying up TONS of gold last year. China is such a massive turd that they were trying to import gold and export gold-plated tungsten rollseyes

There's a general hesitation in other nations about the USD, especially because the nations who are all laden w/debt believe that if they play nice w/IMF, they'll get their national debts wiped. So they may be just hedging against a week dollar.

But obvs, I'm smooth brained retard-- I ate paste and crayons as a child.
