Oh yes, that’ll be cutting commission and bonuses.
Funny how quickly you can get those profit figures to change.

Governments have spent decades weaponising misinformation to the point where no one believes them anymore.
The EU is one of the worst offenders. They continually bang on about democracy but are unelected by citizens. Now they’re blaming everything on climate change and Russia but continue to burn more coal and buy loads more gas from Russia.
Compare your bank account to MP’s and EU bureaucrats and you’ll see why controlling misinformation is so important to them.
EE claim they have 85% coverage of the UK.
Well, having 26 bars of signal on your mobile may be great but you can’t actually transfer any data!
And where’s that useless shower of sh*t OFCOM?
“According to Ofcom’s Connected Nations Report Summer 2020. 85% geographic coverage equates to more than 99% of the population.”
What a surprise! The failed government uses one of its non regulating regulators to pump out more propaganda to the plebs.
EE/BT making billions for a service that only partially works.
She was asked about “programmability” but talked about “privacy”? These are two very different things.
The only reason for a government to adopt a digital currency is for full control.
We already have digital transactions which do everything that a digital currency does apart from the programmable part.
Also remember that once you download a digital wallet for the proposed digital pound it will capture a face scan etc.
This is Digital ID by the back door. The government get full control of your money and can track your movements.
The transfer of wealth continues.
Compare your bank account to Rishi’s or any MP’s or any EU bureaucrat.
If you think any money going to the EU is a good thing then you’re a lamb to the slaughter.
All of your tax ends up going to big corporations and then banks. Money going to the EU is just another way to siphon of your tax. Guess who’s the most invested in these corporations?
You guessed it, Rishi, all MP’s, EU bureaucrats, banks.
OFCOM? Another useless government department wasting more taxpayers money and only protecting big corporations.
Everyone knows these contracts are a scam to sign people up on low deals and then hike up the prices. Mobile phone companies have been allowed to get away with it, by OFCOM, so other companies will jump on the gravy train.
“Ofcom rules state that customers can only leave mobile contracts early, penalty-free, if the price hike is of “material detriment” “
You don’t need it but governments want to tie your Digital ID to money.
CBDC’s will require an app on your phone. They’ll offer free money to download it and people will lap it up.
Once you submit all your details via the app the government can now track all of your movements and financial transactions. This removes all of your privacy and freedom.
The EU will say anything to introduce Digital ID. When you download that friendly government CBDC app your privacy and freedom have gone.
Let’s create loads of fear around crypto being bad so we can save everyone:
“U.S. Treasury Department says that fiat still accounts for the majority of financial crimes.”
“Chainalysis found that the share of illegal money in crypto is only 0.15% of all transactions in 2021.”
Palantir will win because those making the decisions have loads of shares in the company which will shoot up in value when the contract is awarded.
Also, Palantir proved during COVID how quickly they can pass your data to the police so you get a knock at the door. Government love this level of control.
50% of cash points closed in the UK.
Lots of restaurants are now cashless.
CBDC is being promoted by the government.
Get ready for the CBDC app which they’ll fool people in to downloading with an offer of £10 for free in your digital wallet.
This is Digital ID by the back door. Full control and surveillance is imminent.
When all the banks closed in Ukraine when the war started what do you think was still working?
People were buying things with Bitcoin.
People could also flee the country immediately and still have access to funds once they reached another country.
Oppressed people and people in countries who don’t trust their banks also use Bitcoin as currency.
People who can’t get a bank account use Bitcoin.
1.7 billion people don’t have a bank account but Bitcoin allows them to become their own bank.
I think these are good examples of blockchain solving very important problems.
So Susan doesn’t want to do anything about nearly every processed supermarket product containing seed oils or massive amounts of sugar that’s making people ill or obese, so blames it on office staff?
Great distraction technique.
Apart from meat, fruit and vegetables, try buying something from your chosen supermarket that doesn’t contain toxic seed oils. Top tip, vegetable oil is not made from vegetables.
So which one are you choosing, Bitcoin or CBDC’s?
This isn’t a joke, this is the reality. People are buying Bitcoin because they don’t want to be slaves controlled by the government’s CBDC. 105 countries are testing CBDC’s and governments want to attach it to digital ID’s and your carbon footprint.
This report is the continuing FUD to scare people away from Bitcoin adoption. The FCA saying it’s bad yet banks are buying loads of it.
Isn’t it interesting how all these studies compare Bitcoin with other things they don’t agree with, like oil or beef farming?
Why didn’t they compare usage against the fiat banking system, tumble driers or Christmas lights, air conditioning or the aviation industry?
Ultimately the figures used in this study are incorrect. Claiming Bitcoin mining is worse for the environment than gold mining is laughable. These figures have been presented for many years.
The author clearly doesn’t understand that Bitcoin and crypto currencies are not the same. This basic flaw in his understanding undermines the credibility of any of the data presented.
Let’s first note that illegal crypto transfers were only 0.15% of all crypto transactions in 2021.
People use mixers for privacy as most blockchains are public. You wouldn’t want your bank transactions public so crypto is no different.
Governments are banging the terrorism drum because they want to control everything. Why do you think 50% of cash points have been removed? CBDC’s are being trialled by 105 countries so governments will be able to track everything you’ve purchased and all of your movements. They don’t want people moving to crypto as it offers privacy.
Isn’t it funny how the US prosecutors love making these Bitcoin cases public but we hear very little of the massive amount of fiat money laundering that goes on by the big banks?
0.15% of illegal activity uses crypto.
3-5% uses US dolllars.
Unfortunately all 3 of your statements are incorrect. I noticed you gave zero evidence to prove your statements.
HEX went up 10,000% in 2 years and if you held Bitcoin you received it for free.
I didn’t say that I think Bitcoin will go up 12,800% again.
I’m very happy and I’m most definitely not broke.
I’m also not blinkered enough to keep ignoring investments which offer life changing wealth. It’s like claiming Bitcoin isn’t an inflation hedge in the middle of a market crash. There are no hedges at that point. Inflation was talked about over 2 years ago. Bitcoin is up 237% in 2 years. If people think that’s not a hedge they don’t understand maths.
Have fun staying poor.
All investments are down. All markets have crashed. Peoples pension portfolios are down. Netflix is down 64%. So what you’re saying is you don’t have any Bitcoin and you haven’t looked at the liquidity shortage on exchanges. Do some research on how much Bitcoin is not moving from cold storage. Bitcoin is the world’s best performing asset over the last 10 years.
People are buying gold and Bitcoin because they know CBDC’s are coming. If you have no assets, you have no power. We saw what happened to the Canadian truckers bank accounts. The only way to be self sovereign is to be your own bank.
Also remember, Bitcoin is not crypto currency. The word crypto has been banded about by those wishing to promote centralised Altcoins. Bitcoin is the only decentralised asset.
3 - 5% of fiat currency is used for illicit activities.
Only 0.15% of crypto is used for illicit activities.
The banking system misinformation campaign is working well.
We can’t have a new banking system where the peasants can control their own money otherwise we become irrelevant. Let’s blame everything on crypto.
Bitcoin’s total transaction value in 2021 was 20% more than Visa. Therefore I believe your view that people are getting more benefit out of tumble driers is incorrect. This was Bloomberg’s findings but doesn’t include all other Altcoins.
Bitcoin uses 58% renewable energy. The U.K. only produces about 39% renewable energy and the that number is falling rapidly due to the unfavourable weather.
Bitcoin uses less than half the energy of the banking system or gold industries.
Bitcoin is a digital store of value better than gold. Instant transactions can be run on Bitcoin rails, utilising the Lightning Network, which is better than the banking system.
This is the new narrative the mainstream media is belt feeding to everyone.
Energy consumption is a good thing, otherwise we’d all still be living in caves. However, the narrative is that green energy from wind and solar is what we need because rich land owners have incentivised their politician and media friends to say so.
No mention of nuclear energy for years though? Isn’t that funny. Oh yes, it’s because we can’t get subsidies off every single person who pays an energy bill.
The media were told to start a witch hunt against crypto mining, now it’s data centres, next it’ll be tumble driers and Christmas lights.
Let’s blame the energy “users” as it distracts from politicians choosing to adopt green energy solutions that don’t work but make maximum profits for them and their mates.
