Cutting overheads?

Oh yes, that’ll be cutting commission and bonuses.

Funny how quickly you can get those profit figures to change.

Twitter, aka X, tops charts for misinformation, EU official says


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 touts next-gen broadband Smart Hub with Wi-Fi 7 for 2024


More BS

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.

Britcoin or Britcon? Bank of England grilled on Digital Pound privacy concerns


She Doesn’t Understand the Question

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.

Transfer of Wealth

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.

Clingy Virgin Media won't let us leave, customers complain


Nothing Will Change

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” “

CBDC = Digital ID

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.


CBDC Trojan Horse

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.”

UK consortium bid for NHS data platform falls at first hurdle


Money Making and Control

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.

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.

Bank of England won't call it Britcoin but says digital pound 'likely to be needed in future'


There isn’t a digital pound in the UK. There are however digital transactions.

CBDC’s will require digital wallets and that means ultimate control because now the government has a Digital ID system by stealth.

Great Distraction Susan

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.

Swiss bankers warn: Three quarters of retail Bitcoin investors are in the red


Bitcoin or CBDC’s ?

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.

Binance robbed of $600 million in crypto-tokens


Re: Explain to me how this is supposed to be better than the old way of doing things?

Bitcoin is a better than the old way of doing things, “crypto” is not.

Fiat = centralised

Crypto = centralised

Bitcoin = decentralised

Bitcoin worse for the climate than beef, say economists


Only Part of the Story

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.

US treasury whips up sanctions for crypto mixer Tornado Cash


Privacy Should be Protected

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.

DARPA study challenges assumptions about distributed ledger (and Bitcoin) security



More FUD from the US government. They are paving the way for their Central Bank Digital Currency.

3-5% uses US dolllars.

Re: At some stage

So you think 9% return against inflation of over 10% is a hedge!

Interesting maths.


Re: At some stage

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.


Re: At some stage

Tell me you have no Bitcoin without telling me you have no Bitcoin.

As you’re the font of all financial knowledge why not share with us what is the best unconfiscatable asset available that can give a 12,800% in 7 years?

All the thumbs down are from Nocoiner’s.


Re: At some stage

You can’t compare centralised “companies” against decentralised software.

Centralised companies are a single point of failure. It’s also the reason why all currencies have failed over time.


Re: At some stage

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.

Re: Misinformation Campaign

US Treasury report says different.


Obviously your reading skills are bollocks.



Misinformation Campaign

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.

Don't hate on cryptomining, hate the power stations, say Bitcoin super-fans


Re: Distraction

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.

Energy Consumption is BAD !!

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.
