The Satoshi Revolution Chapter 4: Is Privacy Possible in the Digital Era? (Part 3) "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Is Privacy Possible in the Digital Era?

The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations.
Section 2 : The Moral Imperative of Privacy
Chapter 4: When Privacy is Criminalized, Only Criminals will be Private
by Wendy McElroy

Is Privacy Possible in the Digital Era? (Chapter 4, Part 3)

Recent inventions and business methods call attention to the next step which must be taken for the protection of the person, and for securing to the individual the right to be let alone Numerous mechanical devices threaten to make good the prediction that what is whispered in the closet shall be proclaimed from the house-tops.

Louis Brandeis

What is privacy? Simple images come to mind, like slamming a door in the face of a census taker, but the question unlocks a complex issue.

Perhaps the most famous answer comes from an article by the American attorneys Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis, which appeared in a 1890 issue of the Harvard Law Review. It was one of the most influential articles in the history of legal theory. The Right to Privacy is considered to be the first prominent call for privacy as a concept to be cemented into law. It opened: THAT the individual shall have full protection in person and in property is a principle as old as the common law; but it has been found necessary from time to time to define anew the exact nature and extent of such protection. Elsewhere, privacy is defined as the right to be left alone.

The article argued for privacy as a foundational or basic human right, upon which all other rights depended. The right of property in its widest sense including all rights and privileges, and hence embracing the right to an inviolate personality, affords alone that broad basis upon which the protection which the individual demands can be rested. No right is more basic than pri...

Kaspersky Co-Founder: Bitcoin is the U.S. Dollar 2.0 Created by CIA "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin is US Dollar 2.0 Created by CIA | Kaspersky Co-founder

JANUARY 20, 2018


Source: Covert Geopolitics

Theres a reason why China, Russia and South Korea are about to shut down Bitcoin operations in their turf. It has been a CIA project from the very beginning. That explains why theres no transparency as to who actually created it, and the impending shutdown is bringing bitcoins market value down to at least 40%, for now.



Natalya Kaspersky claimed that Bitcoin was designed to provide financing for US and British intelligence activities around the world. The expert called the cryptocurrency dollar 2.0.

The Bitcoin cryptocurrency was developed by American intelligence agencies, Natalya Kaspersky, CEO of the InfoWatch group of companies and specialist in cyber security systems, said during her presentation at ITMO University in St. Petersburg.

Kaspersky was giving a speech on information wars and digital sovereignty. Photos of her presentation entitled Modern technologies the basis for information and cyber-wars, have been published on social media.

Bitcoin is a project of American intelligence agencies, which was designed to provide quick funding for US, British and Canadian intelligence activities in different countries. [The technology] is privatized, just like the Internet, GPS and TOR. In fact, it is dollar 2.0. Its rate is controlled by the owners of exchanges, one of the slides read.

'Alt-right' has declared war against Silicon Valley, pledges to reveal censorship against conservatives "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Far-right conservatives are escalating their campaign against Silicon Valley with a new series of volleys against the social media gatekeepers that control the flow of information in the digital age. Last week, former Google engineer James Damore, who was embraced by conservatives after he was fired last year for distributing a memo that questioned whether women were biologically suited to technical roles, filed a lawsuit claiming the Internet giant discriminates against white men and conservatives. That same day, right-wing journalist-turned-entrepreneur Charles C. "Chuck" Johnson sued Twitter, alleging the company violated his right to free speech when it permanently suspended his account in 2015. Then Project Veritas, a conservative advocacy organization that purports to expose media bias, released undercover videos of current and former Twitter employees condemning President Trump and discussing tactics the company uses to make it tougher to find the tweets of controversial users. Johnson, whose lawsuit against Twitter is being underwritten by bitcoin investments and a crowdfunding campaign, says he and others are committed to putting the spotlight on the alleged censoring of conservative views by Silicon Valley companies. Twitter declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

On average, the typical stock purchase costs between $10 and $20, while the cost to exchange a cryptocurrency costs anywhere from 0.15%-0.25% of the amount being traded. You are probably thinking Fantastic if youre playing with $500. But what if your trades start growing larger as you become more successful? Or if they are already something substantial, like $5,000?

Whether you trade through Poloniex, Bittrex or any other current exchange, the fees involved severely prohibit the profitability of crypto trading. Most exchanges use something called a maker and taker system. The maker creates volume. This important market function comes with the built-in incentive of lower fees. On the other end, the taker is simply the trader who benefits from this function by executing orders on prices offered by the maker. The cost of utilizing these functions is a higher fee. Traditional fee systems have set makers at 0.15%, with takers ranging between 0.20%-0.25%. If youre starting out small with a couple thousand dollars and keep trades to a minimum, you will be largely unaffected. Meanwhile, active investors and traders with substantial amounts of coins will be faced with fees that prevent them from meeting their required rates of return! For a day trader executing a single $3,000 transaction, this 0.2% fee equals out to $6! If you take it a step further and include the exchange fee required to get back to their original position, they could expect to pay nearly $12 per trade. Every day these outrageous fees turn thousands of investors and traders away from the trading opportunity of a lifetime.

With all of this coming to light, a new cryptocurrency exchange has risen to challenge the status quo, bringing both a professional and mature fee system to this sector. Bitmora has popped up in the news these past few months and has been a trending topic on social media. It is becoming clear that people really love th...

Bitcoin has had a rocky week to say the least. At its lowest point, the cryptocurrency dipped to $9,200 before a rising green candle sent it scurrying back into the safety of five figures. That candle was sparked by the release of $100m worth of tethers surrogate US dollars and was followed by another $100m issued for the next three days in a row. Tethers are propping up the bitcoin market right now, but what happens when the music stops? Should regulators wade in or Tether shut up shop, the loss of fresh capital could be cataclysmic.

Mint Press- FBI Whistleblower on Pierre Omidyar and His Campaign to Neuter Wikileaks "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Mid-November, 2017   The Daily Beast ran an exclusive report detailing how the Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) was set to break ties with WikiLeaks amidst concerns among the foundations board, which includes such well-known figures as Daniel Ellsberg, Edward Snowden, Laura Poitras, John Cusack and Glenn Greenwald, among others. The news was confirmed less than a month later when the nonprofits board officially voted to stop accepting U.S. donations for WikiLeaks, which had been blacklisted for years by Visa, MasterCard and PayPal after publishing leaked U.S. government documents provided by Chelsea Manning.

Even though the FPF had been founded to allow WikiLeaks to circumvent the banking blockade which, according to WikiLeaks, sapped nearly 95% of the transparency organizations funds the boards decision to end its founding mission was unanimous.

Last Monday, the FPF made it official, severing its ties with WikiLeaks, leaving it to rely on cryptocurrencies and other esoteric means of funding in order to get around the banking blockade. Journalist Trevor Timm, the FPFs director, told WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange in an email that the foundations reason for ending the partnership was that the financial blockade by the major payment processors is no longer in effect, and as such, we will soon cease processing donations on behalf of WikiLeaks readers.

The financial censorship of WikiLeaks is ongoing in various ways, as is our litigation in response, Assange told Timm in response, adding that:

The FPF faces criticism for receiving donations on our behalf, but that is its function. If it bows to political pressure it becomes part of the problem it was designed to solve and yet another spurious free-speech organization of which there are plenty.

Assange had made the exchange public by publishing it on his personal Twitter, but it has since been deleted.

Indeed, the pressure against WikiLeaks has reached fever pitch, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling Assanges arrest...

In separate announcements, Weiss Ratings and Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE) have announced the introduction of new financial tools to help investors navigate the cryptocurrency market and make smarter investments.

Weiss Ratings, an established independent rating agency of financial institutions, says they will begin issuing ratings for cryptocurrencies on January 24, 2018, to help investors make informed decisions.

ICE, an operator of a network of global futures, equity and equity options exchanges, is partnering with blockchain technology provider Blockstream to launch the Cryptocurrency Data Feed (CDF).

Dollar Dumping in 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Dollar Dumping in 2018

Dear Reader,

The dollar is at its weakest level in more than 3 years.

Its even breaking down against the Chinese yuan and is likely headed below 6-to-1 for the first time ever!

When looking at ALL previous commodity cycles, historically, this is exactly where you want commodities to be when you buy.Commodities are just as cheap relative to stocks as they were at other historical turning points.

The economic indicators are also extremely bullish, and the demand we will see for this next cycle upwards will be far greater than any prior bull market.

According to data compiled by Mizuho Securities, China has now tied the U.S. in terms of domestic retail sales.

In some key areas, China is far ahead of the U.S. now. Take passenger vehicles, for instance: the U.S. sold about 18 million, while China sold 24 million!

The Chinese are also building up real wealth, which could give their economy a Roaring Twenties over the next decade.

Chinas savings rate as a percentage of GDP is over 50%!

The U.S., China, and the entire world are seeing economic growth. You really couldnt ask for a better set-up.

Look for our new commodity plays to be revealed soon!
