Coinbase sucks


Coinbase just signed a deal with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) department to the tune of $1.36 million, for which it will provide ICE with data and analytics around how Americans are buying and spending various cryptocurrencies. The deal, as spotted by Decrypt, is pretty vague; it says only that Coinbase will provide ICE with “application development software.”

If you don't think the government isn't tracking on all crypto sell points you are fooling yourself. Coinbase only lets it out because they went public.

There are non-KYC methods out there for fiat on ramping. They're just a pain in the ass. And you have to take care to use wallets isolated to your "stealthy" funds. One transfer from a known exchange to/from a wallet makes a pretty easy connection.

There are also crypto currencies built around the idea of maintaining anonymity.

So I wasn't familiar with this guy, but a man called JStark a European gun control activist died of a 'heart attack' shortly after being raided by German police. His whereabouts were given to authorities by Coinbase and Ebay apparently.

Fuck Coinbase

This is the oldest scam in the world. Its not even his website nor is it on his twitter.
And it's proven that Elon doesn't know shit about crypto he's just an attention whore who likes the power of a bunch of mindless retards hanging on to every tweet

Inc CBDC's. I've been ringing the bell, you awake yet?

Banks suck, but Central Banks suck worse. Not a ton of a competition in the freedom money space, maybe consider making sure you've got bags before they shut the doors on you. I expect that before long youll be able to get price exposure to BTC via the upcoming ETF, but buying spot is going to be under attack. CBDCs essentially guarantee this.

Regardless of whether you believe Bitcoin has a chance... you should be aware that your privacy and financial freedom is at risk.


The implications of President Biden’s recent nomination for the head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Saule Omarova, reach far beyond “stricter financial rules.” In a forthcoming article for the Vanderbilt Law Review, Omarova expresses her desire to “end banking as we know it” by replacing all private bank deposits with central bank accounts.

Omarova’s proposal, dubbed “FedAccounts,” would replace private deposits with central bank accounts as part of her larger plan to “democratize finance.” However, such a restructuring would result in greater authority in the hands of unelected officials and an overall loss of financial privacy with no guarantees of greater policy effectiveness.
...

Yet, perhaps most jarring is Omarova’s advocacy for an “ultimate end-state,” where FedAccounts fully replace private bank accounts. The proposal comes as a part of Omarova’s plan to restructure the Fed’s entire balance sheet into “the People’s Ledger.” Combined with an expansion of the Fed’s liabilities with FedAccounts, the People’s Ledger involves a corresponding expansion of its assets to include new types of securities and loans. Simply put, the People’s Ledger is presented as Omarova’s plan to expand and restructure the Fed’s balance sheet to restore the public-private balance in the financial system.

CBDC is something closer to being a perversion of cryptocurrency, or at least of the founding principles and protocols of cryptocurrency—a cryptofascist currency, an evil twin entered into the ledgers on Opposite Day, expressly designed to deny its users the basic ownership of their money and to install the State at the mediating center of every transaction.
