During the past few Covid years, the 2030 meme was all over. Unfortunately, it looks like we’re going right into the dark, disgusting abyss that this dystopian sci-fi future promises us.
I get annoyed from time to time because I don’t have any absolute privacy in my home or office. There is no place I can go where I won’t have to be signed in. There must be a record of everything I do, think, and dream about. Nobody should use it against me.
That was taken from an article written by a member of the World Economic Forum and published in Forbes, which you can read here.
And It’s Already Happening. Prepare Yourself
It’s not a bet I’m making with myself or with you when I say it’s true boldly. There is no risk. It’s already here.
These last few years are enough proof. Canadian truckers’ bank accounts and Bitcoin and crypto balances have been frozen because of protests. They can’t be used or withdrawn, and they can’t be used at all. We’ve also seen how Russian citizens were affected when their banks were kicked out of the SWIFT system. Over the years, there have been a lot of social media blackouts, blocks, and bans because of their political beliefs.
We also have China.
In other words,… a country that doesn’t deny its social credit system but instead shows off its flag as something to be admired by Western governments. China and the West have been able to use information as a weapon completely, so of course, that’s the case.
Future Algorithm Operators Will Rule
Many countries already have national digital identities, and they’re only getting bigger. What they all have in common should help you figure out their real purpose. They aren’t there to identify people, and they aren’t there for any identification. They are there to control everything. To learn more about these systems, read the instructions and documentation that come with them. Central control is at the heart of everyone.
I live in Indonesia, and the Trusted Digital Identity (our version) is the brainchild of the World Economic Forum and their global digital identity roadmap. The Trusted Digital Identity (our interpretation) is based on this.
A quote from the World Economic Forum about Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and New Value Creation is used by the government of Indonesia, which is based on that.
Furthermore, WEF research indicates that digital identity is critical for the growth of the digital economy in general, encouraging digital as well as physical engagement with public and private sector services and that it will play a critical role in rebooting the global economy in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. According to the study, digital identity uniquely positions businesses to gain and maintain user trust and remain competitive, ‘…guarantee[ing] the realization of greater economic potential…and advancing an economy that is more inclusive, equitable, and stable for all.’
Equitable, Inclusive, and Stable
Who is going to make that happen? Certainly the state. To be fair and inclusive on the internet, one must give up much personal, private, and financial information. This information is shared and communicated with other government organizations and third parties, and some people think this will eventually include social media accounts and even web history.
This episode of Black Mirror is creepy. The first part.
Part 2 is about the birth of CBDCs or some other kind of CBDCs. Digicash. Digital dollar. Euro. Digicash There is no right or wrong way to call them.
CBDC In the same way, digital identity is coming, and the process has already begun. So when you put the two together, you get a Western-style social credit system that works well for people. You know, the kind that is both inclusive and fair.
How Do We Move the Timeline?
This is a question that many people have. We know a little more than people outside of it in the crypto world. You and I look like we’re smarter than them.
The government and other organizations will be able to look you up in a database and see everything about you, from your deep darkest fears to your dreams to your finances. They will then use that information to decide what you can and can’t do. How do we fight back and protect our data so that the government and other organizations can’t use it to make decisions about us?
Many Ways to Skin a Cat
Many people in this space are working hard to make real, tangible technological defenses and solutions to this Big Brother-like dystopia that is on the way soon.
In the case of cryptocurrency defense, there are already systems in place. There’s no doubt about it: Bitcoin was that.
2008 and 2009 were exciting times. Global financial crisis: The world was plunged into what the media called a “global financial crisis.” It was a crisis, but it was a crisis that could be kicked down the road until today. When Satoshi Nakamoto came up with the idea for the Bitcoin protocol, no one knew who they were. This was an offramp from the global financial system.
We now know that Bitcoin is just the fundamental technology that makes it work. It’s not private, but it does give us a good start. Many people in the space are using this as a way to finish Satoshi’s dream.
Monero, Zcash, Secret, and Pirate Chain are just a few of the many cryptocurrency projects people have heard of. It’s a good thing if we want to control our money because these projects give us even more ways to get off and get back on. Bitcoin was supposed to do this, but these projects do it even better.
Cut the crap for a second. This is one of the things I don’t like about our place. People won’t be able to use privacy coins to solve the problem. Most people don’t own them.
Privacy cryptos have a market value of just 0.6% of the total value of all cryptos out there. Even though privacy currencies are great and should be used and promoted, they’re not the answer. That’s because that solution isn’t based on reality.
Investors, traders, fans, and people who buy and sell cryptocurrencies don’t use privacy currencies. They use the most common currencies.
