So fascinating! In 2010, many crypto-heads wondered if #bitcoin would wake the beast: Would BTC would be insta-banned as a thread to US supremacy and the US dollar, as the "Smash The State" activists dreamed. Will #Libra be that wake-up moment?
RT @WayneVaughan: Should the government have full visibility and control over all financial transactions in its jurisdiction?
#OpenTransfer via @theinformation , "While users of the FB digital wallet that stores Libra tokens will have to submit government-issued ID to buy Libra tokens, people without IDs will still be able to buy Libra through third-party vendors", Kevin Weil, FB VPoP for Calibra
Governance take - Private Central Banks are becoming a thing. The #Libra Association may be a private clone of the FOMC. Private, voluntary, semi-decentralized associations managing a money will become real, catalyzed by #bitcoin and #cryptocurrency
The first question is the only question, really. #thread
Another perspective (monetary colonialism?) #short #thread

Amazing video. Google was scraping Genius’ content and showing it to users without sending them to Genius. Google denied it. Genius proved it by embedding a hidden message in the apostrophes of their text. Applied steganography for plagiarism detection!
