Are We Still Pretending the Crypto World Is Decentralized?

1 Apr 2020 TheDesertLynx

01 April 2020
Another important issue of concern: in the People's Republic of China, no businessman succeeds unless they are under the control of the Communist Party. Alibaba's Jack Ma is a member of the Party. Almost all companies in China have their own Party Committee, which has a great influence in how these companies operate. The Party Committee Chair is indeed ranked higher than the president or CEO. If the Communist Party of China gains control over the majority of world's blockchains and exchanges it will set the agenda and influence policies worldwide. The end result is not only centralization but also the death of everything crypto was invented for - and mutation into a surveillance technology that is the wet dream of every authoritarian despot.

If Bitcoin Reaches $1 Million This Means It Failed, Here's Why

I think the speculators have destroyed the original vision of Bitcoin. The moment people began using BTC as a way to make a quick buck it also created an excuse for the big government to regulate and tax it out of existence. As I have been saying since 2011... Keep Bitcoin Bitcoin... Build a self-contained crypto economy where people actually use BTC to buy and sell things, to get paid for their work, a complete and robust parallel economy. But now it seems like the vast majority of the crypto industry consists of exchanges, custodial wallets, and thousands of new company tokens. No wonder why there's no mass adoption.

I Read a Draft Congress Bill That Wants To Regulate Cryptocurrency in the USA. Here's What I Learned.

GOP may purport to be anti-regulation but they are also highly authoritarian. They love policing and they love prisons. "Deregulation" in GOP's parlance only means something that benefits the big, incumbent businesses such as the energy sector, construction sector, and banking sector. Otherwise, they are actually fans of regressive regulations to prevent new and smaller businesses from undermining the status quo.

It seems like politicians (beholden to special interest lobbies, of course) simply want to tax and regulate crypto and all related emerging technologies out of existence. This sort of impossible-to-comply rules only benefit those players with big money and political connections -- not the innovative startups and certainly not the open-source communities. They cannot and should not regulate a 21st-century technology with this antiquated 20th-century paradigm and legal theories. In any case, I hope to see an emergence of "crypto haven" countries where cryptocurrency projects, encryption technologies, and dApps are allowed to thrive with minimal governmental interference, outside the reach of the USA, EU and OECD.

Phone 'Mining' - ETN (Beginners' How-To Guide)

20 Feb 2020 Mynima

yes, but not much. It took me over a month to get to 100 ETN from the initial 25 ETN. As of this writing 1 ETN = 39 satoshis = USD 0.003711. Basically it takes around three months to get to a dollar. Without many places to spend ETN you will have to have lots of ETN just to exchange it to BTC or other more accepted cryptocurrency considering most exchanges have minimum deposit and minimum withdrawal amounts (plus whatever the fees they charge). Another concern I have with Electroneum is that it is not fully decentralized. There is a central organization that is running this "cloud miner" (now called "ETN Rewards") AND wallet app. There seems to be no independent, non-custodial wallets of ETN, nor anyone who is mining ETN on their own equipment outside the Electroneum organization.

I think this is more about preventing someone from creating more than one account (otherwise they can run the app on multiple smartphones to make more ETN) -- which any human can otherwise do, with or without robots.

KYC/AML is getting off the rail

28 Jan 2020 Creepto

07 February 2020
I seriously think Coinbase wants to be the "PayPal" of crypto. From the get go their business plan has been an affront to the very reason why Bitcoin was invented and everything Bitcoin stood for. Coinbase wants market dominance so people send crypto between their accounts as though it's yet another Venmo. I refuse to do any business with Coinbase or any similar company because of this.

KYC/AML is getting off the rail

If the wider consumer adoption is the goal of the crypto community, scrapping KYC is the number one priority. Buying crypto should be as easy as getting a money order from a post office (which requires no ID up to $2999.99 per day, in case of the United States). Then there have also been reports of bogus ICOs and bogus airdrops set up by criminals just so that they can steal PII under the guise of KYC.

"If I can prove to you access to a real bank account" That was what PayPal originally did for identity verification, circa two decades ago. It worked very well. Basically PayPal would make two deposits to your bank account via ACH with two random amounts (like, 12 cents and 68 cents). Then you would log in and enter "1268" (or "6812", it didn't matter which order) into the verification screen.

Black Market Exchanges You Need To Know About (No KYC/AML Required)

It looks like VCC Exchange has recently implemented KYC (the article says "6 days ago"). But it is required only for daily withdrawals of more than 2 BTC or monthly withdrawal of more than 20 BTC, whichever the lesser. For most people this should be enough. https://support.vcc.exchange/hc/en-us/articles/360020621654-X%E1%BA%BFp-h%E1%BA%A1ng-ng%C6%B0%E1%BB%9Di-d%C3%B9ng

Thoughts and Feedback on the Libra Whitepaper Announcement Yesterday

19 Jun 2019 Mark Anstead

19 June 2019
KYC requirement could as well be what kills Libra, considering that Facebook and Libra are very likely to implement a U.S. and European Union style of KYC/AML regulations predicated on an assumption that most people somehow have a national/state ID card, Social Security Number (or equivalent), and utility bills in their own names. This requirement excludes over 80 percent of the world's population from banking and global economy, as people in developing countries (the ones who are most likely to benefit from e-payment platforms and cryptocurrencies) often do not have means to obtain such documents - or if they could, the documents are so primitive or unreliable that would not meet a U.S./E.U./G7/OECD standard of KYC. This also holds true with migrants, undocumented immigrants, and refugees in "first-world" countries, as well. The inflexibility of KYC as it stands simply does not comport to human reasoning, as these people are not likely to be moving tens of thousands of dollars to "finance terrorists" or "launder money." They are trying to make enough money so they can feed themselves and maybe save up a little to free themselves from poverty. Instead, they are presumed to be criminals because they don't fit into the model of KYC created by and for the white professional class in the Global North (the "respectable" and "desirable" citizens). Add to this, Facebook already has TOO MUCH personally identifiable data. Do we trust Facebook or any of Libra's partner companies (also Big Data businesses) with collecting and retaining KYC documents? Hell no. KYC compliance has become one big con game for identity thieves already, we don't need any more of this garbage.
